Contributors Raised on a tobacco farm in Southeastern North Carolina, our April cover artist Roger Tatum proudly claims true Carolina farm country heritage. He enjoyed drawing his boyhood surroundings, and his passion for sketching eventually led to a 40-year career in advertising. Today, in a return to his coastal roots, Roger enjoys traveling the back roads, meeting people, and painting landscapes, seascapes, and cityscapes. Read more about his life and work on page 10. Holly Tate is a beach-loving North Carolina transplant who grew up on Long Island and never wants to be too far from the ocean. A self-proclaimed “grammar geek,” Holly recently retired from a career in marketing communications after writing, managing, and editing communications for more than 30 years. She loves to explore Brunswick County. Holly tells a tale of artist Roger Tatum on page 10. Donna Ruth Morgan supports better libraries for better communities by volunteering with Friends of the Library in Southport and Oak Island, Boiling Spring Lakes Library Commission, Brunswick County Library Board of Trustees, and the N.C. Friends of the Public Library. She inherited a love of reading and shares that same enjoyment with her four children and three grandchildren. Read Donna’s reviews of fascinating nonfiction on page 14. Pat Naughton and his family moved from Richmond, Va. to Winding River Plantation in Brunswick County last April after Pat retired as a mechanical engineer at a nuclear power plant. He has been an avid gardener for 35 years and completed the Brunswick County Master Gardener training last year. Pat spills secrets for growing the best homegrown tomatoes on page 13. Paul Witmer has been with BSRI since its inception, working with Jim Russell to set up the BSRI sound system (he still volunteers as sound technician). Paul served as Ramps Co-coordinator and desk volunteer at Southport and volunteered to drive BSRI shoppers around for a few years. He still has time to drive seniors…. Need a ride? Paul served 22 years in the Navy and retired to Southport 16 years ago. Paul tells us all about Brunswick County’s Charters of Freedom project on page 9.

pril Fool’s Day is an annual celebration marked by practical jokes and hoaxes. Our first recorded association between April 1 and foolishness is in the Canterbury Tales, Chaucer’s 1392 book of humor. April Fool’s Day is a popular holiday throughout Europe, but days for pranks are also set aside in such diverse places as Mexico, the Philippines, and Iran. It seems people all over the world are ready to set aside a day for fun. We like the kinder, gentler pranks ourselves—frozen jello, for instance, rather than disappointing fake lottery tickets. And in our house, we have long celebrated the dogs’ birthdays on April 1—all the dogs. Because dogs are happy, foolish beasts. April is also one of our most beautiful months, with blooming azaleas and trees. This April, we feature a local artist who is much loved for his paintings of our native landscape. Learn about Roger Tatum and his work with painting en plein air on page 10. If you’re an art lover, also check out the BSRI Thrift Store. There’s an April Art Sale going on with some pretty cool finds, including one noted in this month’s Thrift Store Throwback on page 7. Enjoy the spring weather, Brunswick Countians!

Thoughts from a Director

Time for Our Volunteers V olunteer appreciation month is here! National Volunteer Month comes around every April. This month is dedicated to honoring all of the volunteers in our communities and encouraging volunteerism.

Painting by Roger Tatum

Roger Tatum captured the scene on our cover in the quaint fishing village of Georgetown, SC. “Having been around so many shrimp boats here in Brunswick County, I was drawn to this particular vessel due to the very familiar way it was constructed,” he said. “I think it was built locally in Brunswick County. I also enjoyed the whole setting, dock, trees, and water reflections.” The boat’s name is the same as Tatum’s wife. “Her patience and forbearance, giving me the time and support to pursue my art whenever and wherever we go, amazes me,” Tatum said.

Here at BSRI we throw a big party in April called Volunteers’ Night Out. It is a beautiful sight to see all of these service-minded individuals come together in one place. At the event, our volunteers have the opportunity to shop together, listen to live music, chat over a meal, and win prizes. We want our volunteers to

know that even though the party is only once a year, we appreciate them every day. There is not a day that goes by that BSRI could continue its meaningful work as well as it does without the help of our 500+ volunteers. These are the people who are out there serving others and making the lives of Brunswick County seniors better.

Volunteers are extremely valuable VOLUNTEERS, continued on page 6

If you visit one of our centers or sites and see a volunteer, make sure to give them an extra special thank you this month!

throughout our organization. Every day I see our volunteers in action. Without their help—doing anything from opening the door, greeting participants, helping behind the scenes to update and register participants, checking in on our Meals on Wheels volunteers, serving meals, packing and delivering homebound meals, and much more— none of what we do would run as smoothly as it does. I am fortunate to see the dedication that our volunteers have for our mission on a daily basis.

others and the community, which in turn provides a natural sense of accomplishment. Volunteering is good for your health at any age, but it’s especially beneficial for older adults. It keeps you active and initiates happiness. It’s a fun and easy way to explore your interests and passions. You may even find that it can be a relaxing escape from the day-to-day routine. BSRI is a special place to be, to volunteer, and to work! Please come to Volunteers’ Night Out April 5 (RSVP to Sarah Powell at spowell@bsrinc.org).

BSRI News Thrift Store Throwback

BSRI Thrift Store in Calabash Celebrates Art in April By Mike McGurn BSRI Thrift Store Operations Manager This painting by Anthony Thieme is titled “Rainy Day in Rockport.” The artist was born in Rotterdam, Netherlands in 1888. He moved to the U.S. at a young age and eventually settled in Rockport, Mass. When you Google this painting, the first thing that comes up is a video of a 2013 Antiques Roadshow appraisal of the original oil on canvas painting. That painting was given an at-auction appraisal of between $10,000 and $15,000! Of course, the one we have at the Thrift Store, which is a print on board, is worth much less. We’re selling it for only $99, but we think it’s worth more than that. The print is a great example of the beautiful artwork that we get at the Thrift Store, and right now we have a sizable inventory of really nice stuff. So throughout the month of April we will be celebrating our appreciation of art by having a 20% Off All Artwork Sale.

Also in April, we will be celebrating the natural beauty of

spring with our beautiful artificial flower arrangements, made in house by one of our talented employees. As you can see from the one pictured here, these arrangements help brighten up our store and people's spirits as well. They sell fast, so hurry in for the best selection. Grab some art and artificial flowers and help us celebrate in April. In doing so, you will help us raise money for our local seniors in the process.

he Brunswick County Commissioners, along with the support of Foundation Freedom and the citizens of Brunswick County, are seeking to put the Charters of Freedom on the steps of the Brunswick County Court House. The Charters of Freedom are our nation’s founding documents: the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Foundation Forward, Inc. is an educational project that builds Charters of Freedom monuments in local communities, displaying replica documents for everyone to read. It’s an educational non-profit based in North Carolina whose goal is to bring meaningful civic education to local communities.

At all of Charters of Freedom sites, volunteers meet with groups of school children to learn and ask questions. The Charters of Freedom help educate young people and everyone about the history of the founding of the United States.

Charters of Freedom settings provide a permanent centerpiece in communities to remember our history and honor our military families, first responders, loved ones, and businesses.

Charters of Freedom Needs Your Help We have raised $10,000 and need to raise $30,000 more to build a Charters of Freedom monument here in Brunswick County, bringing history alive for thousands of schoolchildren who may not be able to travel to Washington, D.C. to see the documents that founded our country. The Brunswick County Charters of Freedom monuments will be built in front of the Brunswick County Courthouse, available to the public and part of tours for Brunswick County schoolchildren.

If every person older than 60 in Brunswick County gave just $1, we would have enough to build a Charters of Freedom monument.

Mail us $1! Do your small part! Please mail a check for $1 to Brunswick Senior Resources, Inc., Charters of Freedom, P.O. Box 2470, Shallotte, NC 28459. OR Bring $1 to our Charters of Freedom Gala on April 30 at The Brunswick Center at Supply, 101 Stone Chimney Rd., Supply (see gala information on facing page). To learn more about Foundation forward and the Charters of Freedom project, go to www.brunswickchartersoffreedom.com. Foundation Forward is a 501(c) (3) agency. Checks may be made payable to “Brunswick County Charters of Freedom.”


Eyes on Brunswick County

ARTIST ROGER TATUM

Something in the Air

By Holly Tate

“A

successful painting,” says artist Roger Tatum, “shows how I feel about what I see.” With the natural beauty of North Carolina as his subject matter, Tatum paints what he loves most. He was raised on a tobacco farm near the Waccamaw River, just 25 miles from his current home in Bolivia, and attended Tabor City schools. While farm life didn’t provide much in the way of art classes or materials, Tatum was always sketching his surroundings and began creating art in elementary school. By the time he reached high school, his talent was already receiving widespread recognition.

Tatum attended Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Fla. The good Florida weather provided abundant opportunities to be outdoors and paint, and also enabled him to study with a very talented watercolorist. Today, painting in the outdoors— en plein air—is Tatum’s passion. An artist working in watercolor must be nimble, he says, to quickly capture a scene. Whether painting en plein air or completing a work in his studio, Tatum designs the composition and creates a color palette to convey his impressions. “I like to make an evocative

statement about the subject rather than a simple representation,” he says.

Following art school, Tatum pursued a career in advertising, first in Chicago and later in North Carolina, for more than 40 years. He also studied at Roosevelt University and the American Academy of Art. About 10 years ago, he sold his High Point advertising agency, Tatum Toomey Whicker, and launched the next phase of his art and life. Initially he painted just for himself, but when one of his works sold quickly at a good price, Tatum

realized his art was more than just a hobby. In addition to his original watercolors, he could share his work via printing. Tatum praises his wife, Kathy, for her patient support of his talent and describes her as both a candid critic and his most devoted advocate. Today he actively pursues his art, exhibiting paintings and prints in local galleries and at art shows, and conducts plein-air painting workshops throughout North Carolina.

You can see more of Roger Tatum‟s work at Lantana in Southport; Sunset River Marketplace in Calabash; River to Sea Gallery in Wilmington; and Tatum Galleries in Banner Elk. You can also learn about his upcoming events, exhibitions, and workshops by visiting www.tatumwatercolors.com.

“I can‟t understand the word „retirement,‟” Tatum says.


Volunteers

A Fresh Perspective Brunswick Senior Resources is continuing to grow and expand to meet the needs of senior citizens in this wonderful, beach-surrounded county! BSRI is always looking for ways to engage volunteers. As a nonprofit we depend on volunteers. We strive to keep volunteerism and service at the forefront of our organization. Our work and your work as a volunteer or potential volunteer is invaluable to our community and society as a whole.

Without philanthropic individuals who care about a bigger purpose, our county and country would be a sad place. Part of our organization’s mission is to provide solutions to educate and inspire this community about healthy aging.

We work toward healthy aging goals for the county first by advocating to end big civic issues like senior hunger, food insecurity, and lack of adequate nutrition. We have our own in-house nutrition program and a whole volunteer team dedicated solely to this one, very important mission.

Fresh, hot meals are made at several of our centers

daily. They are packed and sealed into disposable trays by a volunteer team and then delivered, also by volunteers, to homebound seniors in Brunswick County. We deliver one fresh, hot, daily meal to over 300 individuals county-wide and operate with over 500 volunteers yearly as an organization.

Secondly, we encourage a healthy, active lifestyle for older adults ages 50 and up. At our five centers we offer various upbeat exercise classes, meditation and yoga, continuing education, personal development, art classes, volunteer opportunities and more. Help us achieve these big goals by volunteering. We are looking to continuously gain new, excited, passionate, mission-driven volunteers to join our team. You won’t regret feeling connected to a bigger purpose! —Sarah Powell, BSRI Volunteer Coordinator


In the Garden

By Pat Naughton

“O

nly two things that money can’t buy, that’s true love and homegrown tomatoes,” wrote John Denver in the song “Home Grown Tomatoes.” Growing tomatoes can be a challenge in Brunswick County with the heat and drought conditions. But with a few steps and daily monitoring, you can grow tomatoes that are priceless.

Select tomatoes that are smaller in size and disease resistant. These tomatoes generally have shorter maturity times and can be harvested before the summer heat. The Edible Garden at Brunswick Extension Office has had success growing Atomic Grape, Creole Original, Sungold, Black Vernissage, Cherokee Purple, Eva Purple Ball, Ace 55, and Porter Improved. Look for “VFN” on the label, which means they carry resistance to verticillium wilt, fusarium wilt, and root-knot nematodes.

Improve sandy soil by working in 2 to 3 inches of compost or peat moss in the top 6 to 9 inches of soil. If the soil has not been tested, apply ¾ cup of lime and ½ cup of 8-8-8 fertilizer for each plant. Otherwise follow the recommendation from the soil analysis. Soil samples can be brought to the Brunswick County Extension office for analysis for a small fee. About two cups of soil are needed for analysis. Plant the tomatoes 1 ½ to 2 feet apart with the top of peat pot 1 inch below the soil. Trim a few of the leaves so the plant is not stressed on

Beat blossom-end rot and other hazards with Pat Naughton’s tips for growing tomatoes in Brunswick County.

hot days. Place a tomato cage around the plant. After the plants have started to set fruit, side-dress the plants with 2 to 3 tablespoons of a complete fertilizer like 10-10-10. Repeat this every 4 to 6 weeks. The fertilizer should be placed 4 to 6 inches from the stem to avoid fertilizer burn.

A common problem for tomatoes is blossom-end rot. This results in decay of the tomato fruits on their blossom end. This is a physiological disorder caused by a lack of sufficient calcium in the blossomend of the fruit. Here are some steps to reduce blossom-end rot: 

Add lime to reach a pH 6.5 to 6.7 – If the garden has not been limed in the past 2 to 3 years, add 2 cups of lime for each plant. Work the lime into the soil 12 inches deep. It is recommended to get a soil

analysis to better determine the amount of lime needed. 

Fertilize properly – If no soil analysis is available then add ¼ cup of 8-8-8 per plant.

Mulch – cover the base of the plant with straw, pine straw, or newspaper to help keep the soil moist.

Irrigate – plants require 1.5 inches of water per week. Adjust the watering based on rainfall.

Calcium – add crushed up egg shells to the soil, or spray the leaves with a calcium solution. To make a solution add calcium nitrite or calcium nitrate or calcium chloride at 4 level tablespoons per gallon of water. These sources of calcium can be found in the vitamin supplement section of food stores. This spray should be applied 2 to 3 times a week, beginning at the time the second fruit clusters bloom.


Read All About It

By Donna Ruth Morgan

W

ho knew that the story behind the famed Kitty Hawk manned flights was an unsolved mystery? William Hazelgrove did a deep dive to research his 2018 Wright Brothers, Wrong Story: How Wilbur Wright Solved the Problem of Manned Flight. The investigation uncovered many facts obscured over time, revealing a massive misunderstanding of the truth due to a single photograph and the self-seeking duplicity of a surviving brother. This little gem is chock-full of keen analysis and more personal information about Orville and Wilber than previously known. Although the writing is a bit uneven, Mr. Hazelgrove’s shocking discoveries overcome any editorial deficits and appeal to those who are fascinated with the history of flight or the secrets of aerodynamics. Right from the true crime annals of the Tennessee Children’s Home Society, Before We Were Yours (2017) deftly links a twentiethcentury family ripped apart by kidnapping with a presentday woman living a seemingly fairytale life. Author Lisa Wingate traces generational connections between a depression-era, Memphis riverboat family and a privileged, modern Carolinian dynasty. This historical novel offers poignancy, clearlytelegraphed romance, and enough southern intrigue to propel it from “overlooked” to “must read” status.

The Point of it All: A Lifetime of Great Loves and Endeavors (2018) by Pulitzer Prize winner Charles Krauthammer was posthumously edited by his son, Daniel Krauthammer. Deeply personal anecdotes, set in a framework of politics, yields a treasury of philosophical musings on the state of our nation, world, and future. Charles was a liberal in the true sense—advocating open and pluralistic politics— but considered himself a conservative who never shied away from speaking truth to power. The collection, chosen by Charles during his final days, culminates in a brilliant essay distilling a lifetime of observation and analysis. A great man and writer who lived his life “with no regrets”—what more could readers ask? Friends of the Library (FOL) raises funds to support Brunswick County Libraries, mainly through used book sales. Three branches have continuous inside-the-library book sales during business hours: FOL Leland adds new titles every week, FOL Southwest offers books, videos, DVD and puzzles, and the Rourke Reading Room in Shallotte branch has great bargains for readers. FOL Southport and Oak Island has an ongoing book sale at Southport Realty at 727 N. Howe St. in Southport and has monthly themed book specials. This month’s sale, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 27, gives you a chance to stock up on cookbooks at half price.

A recent scam involves people pretending to be from the Social Security Administration (SSA) and trying to get your Social Security number or your money. That scam is growing exponentially: in 2017, the FTC heard from 3,200 people about SSA imposter scams, and those people lost nearly $210,000. In 2018, more than 35,000 people reported the scam, and they lost $10 million. A scam call may sound like this: Scammers say your Social Security number (SSN) has been suspended because of suspicious activity, or because it’s been involved in a crime. Sometimes, the scammer wants you to confirm your SSN to reactivate it. Sometimes, he’ll say your bank account is about to be seized – but he’ll tell you what to do to keep it safe. (Often, that involves putting your money on gift cards and giving him the codes – which, of course, means that your money is gone.) Oh, and your caller ID often shows the real SSA phone number (1-800-772-1213) when these scammers call – but they’re faking that number. It’s not the real SSA calling. Here’s what to know: Your Social Security number is not about to be suspended. Don’t verify your number to anyone who calls out of the blue. And your bank accounts are not about to be seized. SSA will never call to threaten your benefits or tell you to wire money, send cash, or put money on gift cards. Anyone who tells you to do those things is a scammer. Every time. The real SSA number is 1-800-772-1213, but scammers are putting that number in the caller ID. If you’re worried about what the caller says, hang up and call 1-800-772-1213 to speak to the real SSA. Never give any part of your Social Security number to anyone who contacts you. Or your bank account or credit card number. If you get one of these calls, tell the Federal Trade Commission at ftc.gov/complaint.

A FAMILIAR FACE AT CALABASH

By Barbara L. Weber Before retirement, Oliver Ferland exercised race horses for a living. It was thrilling to work along with various trainers. In all, nearly 20 horses were his responsibility, but his favorite was Red Reality. That’s the one he calls the “Million Dollar Horse”...no doubt, a pet name that came from money won the races. Just ask Oliver to proudly show you the picture of him sitting on the horse that he keeps in his wallet. (Top Left) A native of Canada, Ferland came to the U.S. along with the horses in 1969. Later on, he decided to buy his own truck and did long distance driving. In 2002, he moved to Calabash and golf also became his passion. He was fortunate enough to once play in a tournament with Westmoreland and Bob Hope in Charleston. He says, “It was the greatest!” The father of two sons, Ferland lights up when speaking of them. One lives in Washington, D.C., works with Republican Party and the other lives in Seattle. He loves six grandchildren that he visits often. Unfortunately, during a triple bypass surgery, Oliver had a stroke on the operating table and now daily must rely on a walker for movement. “No more golf,” he states, but therapy and Geri-Fit at the Center has Ferland growing stronger every day! We are so happy you are a member of the Calabash Crew, Oliver!

Have you heard or seen essential oils in the news recently, or noticed them in a local shop or even the pharmacy? Well, the truth is, they've been around for thousands of years, as plant-based therapy. And they're a lot easier than you think to include in your daily health & wellness routine. But smells you say....I can't. Good news! The aromas you've been used to smelling that may disturb you or give you a headache are NOT the oils that we're talking about. Quality and educated use is key to "aromatherapy". Unfortunately many of the oils you may have been exposed to, weren't really true oils. Join us to learn what a true, pure essential oil really is, and how to use them! It's never too late to "turn over a new leaf" & add some vitality & abundance to your golden years!

CRITIQUES Fridays, April 12th & 26th at 12:30 Zada Mae brings all that you will need to create a beautiful pine needle basket. Each class is just $22 ^(Register in Art Studio)

Written by Writer’s Bloc Member, Linda Dostie Scott (Join them on this month on 4/11 & 4/25!) Our group, made up of different writing styles, Short stories are for some of us, others go the extra mile. It doesn’t matter who we are, or what we like to read, Sometimes it’s just a lesson, so we can share a seed. It gives the mind fulfillment, for it’s what we like to do, To share with people, we bring our stories and poems to you. The value here, share and listen, with great ideas of the mind. You’ll get the best critiques and come out refined. I see another story here, further down the hill, With Barbara, Elsa, and CJ, will write another book at will. Then there’s Sally, Tom, and Sandra who have shared an awful lot, The rest of us, even Linda, should give it a lot of thought. Thanks for having a Critique Group, especially like this one. I’m glad I did not miss, it’s been a lot of fun. You see, learning’s for all of us, so we can understand, What we have in common, writing, creating, working hand in hand. Since the first group meeting, some were kept in the dark, We didn’t get that change to meet Mr. Mark. It’s been a pleasure for these meetings, To meet all of you, with your special greetings.

Happy Hello!

Stop by our front desk in Southport and introduce yourself to our newest face, Sherrill Jolly! We are so fortunate to have her on board. She comes to us with 30+ years as a high school English teacher with Brunswick County Schools. You may also recognize her from Brunswick Little Theatre Pproductions. Welcome, Sherrill!

Sad Goodbye!

If you have eaten lunch with us, then you probably know the friendly face of Doris Anglemyer, who has been volunteering in our kitchen for more than 7 years. Doris is leaving us to return to Ohio to be closer to her family. We will miss you so much, Doris! Wishing you nothing but the best.

Come join us in the stage ballroom on Monday, April 29th for our first Memory Café. Anyone with memory issues and their caregivers are invited to attend. We will have a catered lunch, music and activities. Where: Stage Ballroom When: Monday, April 29 Time: 12:00pm Sign up at the front desk to attend, or call 910-7547109 to reserve your spot. Space is limited! Many thanks to Carillon for hosting this event!

HOW TO BECOME A PAID CAREGIVER Myth: You need a certification to work with a licensed home care agency. Fact: Many home care agencies have clients who need nothing more than a little help around the house, companionship, transportation or safety supervision. No certification is required to fill this role. Sign up at the front desk to come to this informational session about becoming a paid caregiver.

A special thank you to our dedicated puzzlers, (Charles Wilson, Joe Allred , Pat Nash (Pictured l– R); along with Steve Ross, Diane James, Linda Lineberry, and everyone who works to create and frame the beautiful puzzles that grace the walls of our center. The puzzles not only provide art for our center, but are available for purchase, with the proceeds funding activities at the Brunswick Center at Supply. GIVING BACK Glenda Schantz and her niece Lora Greene introduced Sleep Mats for the homeless to the Brunswick Center at Supply and others lovingly joined in the effort. A great deal of time and care goes into each mat, with 100 hours of crocheting time, and the collection of over 600 bags required for each one. Several mats have been donated and the project continues. We appreciate all their hard work.
