appy spring, Brunswick County! Our March issue is all about getting outdoors to enjoy the spring warm-up. Yes, there’s still a brisk wind on the beach strand, but now is the best time to explore some of our area’s quieter natural areas. It’s sometimes hard to get back outside after huddling inside on chilly winter days. Find motivation on page 10, as Holly Tate shows you places to walk that are sheltered from the elements, coming into bloom, and not too hot yet. Once you’ve been for a walk, you might be inspired to do some work in the garden. Our garden columnist Pat Naughton has potatoes in mind. This Irish vegetable, perfect to plant on St. Paddy’s Day, is easily grown in containers. See page 9. You can celebrate the green of the season indoors, too—in the kitchen especially—with two recipes using green vegetables on pages 12 and 13. They’re delicious and easy. Get far outside by taking a trip with BSRI. We have trips scheduled to the Grand Canyon and the Danube River, and we’d love to have you along. See page 22 for more information. On page 8 you’ll find a convenient listing of community resources. Keep this page handy for phone numbers and web addresses of organizations you might find useful now or later. Do you know of resources we’ve overlooked? Please send those additions to me at buzz@bsrinc.org.

Thoughts from a Director

Puppy Love in Southport S

pring has sprung, bringing new life everywhere! Flowers are blooming, birds are singing, and wildlife is busy bringing offspring into the world.

Photo by Dave Kilgore

Baby animals are one of my favorite things about spring. One cold and blustery morning at the end of January, a tiny miracle came to visit us at the Brunswick Center at Southport. Sheila Grooms, one of our volunteers and a mah-jongg instructor, came in the door holding something so tiny, I had no idea it was alive. When he moved, I could see he was a precious Pekingese puppy. Sheila has three other Pekingese dogs that are therapy dogs and this one is the newest addition. “What is his name?” I asked. “Butch,” was the reply. Butch? What a huge name for such a tiny puppy. She handed

him to me. He snuggled right down in the curve of my neck.

I decided to perform a small experiment. I held Butch while standing at the front door, and he soon became the greeter of the senior center on that cold, dreary THOUGHTS, continued on page 6

Butch is a tiny therapy-dog-in-training who likes to welcome visitors to the Brunswick Center at Southport. He sometimes helps owner Sheila Grooms with her mah-johngg class.


Thoughts from a Director / BSRI News THOUGHTS, continued on page 6

Monday morning. The smiles he brought to the faces of our participants as they came in the door warmed us all. Some stopped to pet him. Some wanted to hold him. Some were wondering if he was even real. The result from all the people coming through the door was the same: JOY. Happy faces, complete with smiles, surrounded me. Even people who do not consider themselves animal people were stopping to smile at the adorable Butch. He was dressed for the occasion as well, wearing his bowtie collar. Sweet snuggles and tiny whimpers were all we heard from him. We put him on the floor to see how short he was, and to watch him walk around. Seeing my wonderful participants

interact with this brand-new puppy melted my heart.

Sheila takes her dogs to the nursing home to provide therapy to the residents. When she takes them in the door, their little feet never hit the ground. They are passed from person to person, and they are welltrained for all that handling from coming to the senior center to become socialized. We are so fortunate and thankful to receive this kind of happy surprise! Thank you, Sheila Grooms, for sharing your therapy dogs with us. It is proven that animals provide therapy, calm, and happiness for people, and that is certainly true here in our center. Stay tuned for more to this story.

By the time this article is published, Butch will have a little sister named Betty. Keep an eye on the Southport pages in the Buzz and you may see a picture of them together!

Thrift Store Throwback

If You Have the Time.... We Have a Vintage Time Clock for You! By Mike McGurn BSRI Thrift Store Operations Manager

D

oes anyone remember using one of these or one like it? You never know what unique and unusual things will show up at the Thrift Store. This vintage IBM time clock was recently donated to us. It's a lot heavier than it looks and weighs about 20 pounds. I guess they wanted to make sure nobody took off with it when they weren’t looking! We found that this same model sold on eBay last November for $129. We are asking only $39 for it. This is just another example of the strange but oftentimes collectible items you can find at great prices here at the BSRI Thrift Store in Calabash. So, if you have the time.... Stop in soon and check out our latest arrivals. Photo by Mike McGurn

Check out this vintage time clock and other cool collectibles at the BSRI Thrift Store in Calabash.

Don’t miss our next Pet Adoption Event at the store on Saturday, March 9, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone!

Freed received a bachelor’s degree in social work from the University of Tennessee in her home town of Chattanooga. She worked for an inner-city organization with support programs for senior singles, where she was involved in program development and acted as a co-facilitator for the organization’s grief support groups for widows and widowers.

Following graduation, she moved to the Carolina coast to study the African slave culture of the Tidewater region, working for museums including time as the museum director for Magnolia Gardens in Charleston, S.C. A little over a year ago, Freed met her husband Rick, who introduced her to his hometown of Wilmington. In August 2018, they exchanged vows at the Kindred Spirit Mailbox in Sunset Beach.

“Chattanooga was a great place to grow up,” Freed said. “I loved backpacking and spent a great deal

In the Garden

By Pat Naughton

S

hamrocks are commonly associated with St. Patrick’s Day, but there is another plant with more impact on the Irish people than the shamrock: potatoes. The potato blight which began in 1845 resulted in the death of a million people and the emigration of two million more. For many IrishAmericans, potatoes are a staple. Potatoes are very easy to grow, especially in containers. Potatoes should be planted two to three weeks before the last frost. For Brunswick County the average last frost is March 19. The beginning of March is the perfect time to plant.

Containers have several advantages over a garden plot for growing potatoes. Containers can be moved to sunny areas or indoors on cold days and nights. It’s easy to maintain proper moisture with a container that has drain holes. Harvesting is very easy: Just empty out the container. A 5-gallon bucket is well-suited for growing potatoes. A cardboard

box lined with a plastic sheet or bag will also work. If using a bucket, drill holes in the bottom a few inches apart. Place large rocks in the bottom. I have even used scraps of wood, cut in 2'' blocks. Don’t use gravel, which is difficult to remove when reusing the soil. Fill the bucket up one third with soil. Raised bed soil is a good medium for potatoes.

Seed potatoes are available at gardening centers. Any organic potato will work. Seed potatoes are never treated with sprout inhibitors. Seed potatoes should be Certified Disease Free. Let the potato sit for a week or so until buds start to appear. Cut the potato so that each slice has at least one eye. To help prevent fungus, dust each slice with sulfur.

Let the slices sit for a few days to form a protective layer over the cut surface, improving both moisture retention and rot resistance. Then bury the potato three inches deep with the eyes up. Place the container in a location that will get 6 to 8 hours of sun. As the potato grows, add soil to cover up to the top leaves. Leave a few inches of space from the top of the container. Potatoes need 70 to 90 days to mature. When the leaves begin to turn yellow, it’s time to harvest. Empty the bucket and reap the harvest. Colcannon is a classic Irish potato dish made with cabbage, green onions, milk, and butter. If you want to really make it look Irish, garnish it with some shamrocks.

Get Out and Take a Hike! By Holly Tate

experience nature’s beauty up close.

id you know Brunswick County has acres of undeveloped wilderness just ready to explore? Now is the perfect time to watch springtime unfold in our parklands and preserves, and discover a mix of vegetation, wildlife, ecosystems, vistas, wetlands, and waterways as well as scenic trails where you can

Parks are typically open yearround from early morning until dusk and have trails to accommodate various skill and mobility levels; many sites have picnic areas and restrooms. Here’s some information to help you get hiking.

The Brunswick Nature Park bills

itself as “an environmental oasis worthy of exploration.” We agree! Nearly four miles of hiking trails appropriate for beginner, intermediate, and advanced hikers meander through the natural green space. You can also access the park via kayak or canoe from a Brunswick County paddle trail. Brunswick Nature Park 2601 River Rd. (N.C. 133) Winnabow

Containing a range of natural environments, the Boiling Spring Lakes Preserve is owned by North Carolina and managed by the Nature Conservancy. Here you can hike a 2.9-mile loop on surfaces covered with sand or springy pine straw and see mini waterfalls and rock outcroppings. The trail is easy.

It’s fun to identify animal tracks when you’re hiking. These show a raccoon has visited Boiling Spring Lakes Preserve.

Ev-Henwood is a 174-acre coastal forest nature preserve owned and managed by UNC Wilmington (UNCW) in partnership with the Coastal Land Trust. As you can probably guess, environmental education is a key objective at the preserve, offering UNCW students and area visitors the opportunity to explore and experience the flora and fauna of Brunswick County in a natural habitat.


Out and About Two main hiking trails, which take about two hours to complete, provide self-guided learning opportunities. A network of 15 easyto-navigate trails treat visitors to the plants, trees, flowers, birds, and other species that share the EvHenwood preserve.

Can you hike in a swamp? Sure! You can easily traverse the Green Swamp’s longleaf pine savannas and use elevated boardwalks to cross wet areas. The 17,000-acre preserve features just 5.5 miles of hiking trails but is home to 14 species of carnivorous plants – including flytrap, sundew, butterworts and bladderworts, and pitcher plant – and 18 varieties of orchids. Trails are rated as moderate. Photo by Bill Tate

Enter this biologically rich area named by the World Wildlife Fund as one of the top 10 ecoregions in North America. Controlled burns used to preserve the ecosystem may periodically close the Green Swamp. The Nature Conservancy Green Swamp Trail Parking area and trailhead: N.C. 211, 5 mi. north of U.S. 17 Supply

Visitors call this boardwalk trail a hidden gem! An easy 15- to 30minute walk across the Davis Canal and back enables you to experience a marsh environment from a unique perspective and spot a variety of wildlife against a beautiful natural backdrop.

Healthy Bites

By Mallory Balice Program Specialist Did you know that artichokes are packed with a variety of healthy antioxidants? They are known as a powerful vegetable that contains essential nutrients to help sustain the body. Here are some healthy nutrients that are in artichokes:  Protein – Who would have

thought artichokes contain a ton of protein? One 3.5-ounce artichoke has about 4 grams of protein!  Vitamin C – This vegetable is a

powerful way of keeping the immune system up and running during the cold winter season.  Magnesium – This very important

nutrient helps ward off diseases and keeps the heart and brain working.

 Fiber – Help move things around

in the digestive system cycle and stay feeling full with fiber. Did you know that one artichoke contains about 7 grams of fiber?

 Reduces the risk of cancer –

Artichokes reduce inflammation, which may help decrease the growth of cancerous cells in the body.


Seasonal Eats

Time for the Eating o’ the Green By Joan Leotta

D

o you indulge in the joyful Irish traditions that dominate the month of March? These often include eating such delicious Irish specialties as soda bread, corned beef, stews with Guinness, and other yummy dishes of Gaelic cuisine.

bag, in a salad or sautéed with a small bit of olive oil flavored with garlic or ginger or both. Fresh greens shrink tremendously. A 10-ounce bag of spinach will yield only 1 to 1 and1/2 cups when cooked, roughly

two nice-sized servings. My favorite dish for the St. Pat holiday is farfalle pasta with spinach. When I can find a green pasta, one made with spinach, I use that.

As much as I like those foods, in recent years I have taken another direction with my March specialties—greens, especially the early spring and late winter greens such as collards, kale, and spinach. March is the month when the world begins to turn green. It’s also a lovely color for food to celebrate the Emerald Isle, wearin’ the green on your plate as well as on your person. My favorite of the greens is spinach—fresh. When selecting fresh spinach or any type of greens, look for a bunch or a bag that is lively—strong leaves, fully green and not limp or yellowed. Cleaning greens takes a few minutes. Rinse off the bunch and drain in a colander. Fresh spinach may need a bit of extra washing since it is often grown in sandy soil that sticks to the leaves. If you are sautéing or cooking in a soup, you do not need to let the leaves dry completely. For salad, spin them dry. Use greens quickly after cleaning so they don't lose flavor or texture. If you must store the greens uncooked, do it in the refrigerator, as loosely packed as possible. Tight storage in plastic will cause rot. The simplest way to serve spinach is right out of the market

Read All About It

Prominent Women Pen Interesting Memoirs By Donna Ruth Morgan

W

omen’s History Month is the perfect time for these two top-selling 2018 books—one serious, one “frothy”—and both available through the Brunswick County Library System. “If there’s one thing I’ve learned in life, it’s the power of using your voice.” Interweaving political discourse and personal memoir, Becoming by Michelle Obama exhibits the power of ambition through the story of her extraordinary life thus far. The narrative begins in Southside Chicago with stops at Princeton and Harvard (“Becoming Me”), continues in marriage, overcoming infertility and having children (“Becoming Us”), and moves to the corridors of influence in Washington, D.C. (“Becoming More”). The author provides carefully edited pictures of her life—colored by issues of race, gender, and politics, brightened with an abundance of accolades for those who supported her and her husband, shadowed by slurs for those who offended. Ms. Obama’s repeated question throughout: “Am I good enough?” leaves me believing that, as a person, she is good enough, but her book is a distortion of history. For this reader, Becoming was inspiring at first, disappointing at last. “Life isn't about perfection. There is no rule book. Life has many different chapters, and every chapter deserves celebrating.” Reese Witherspoon’s

Whiskey in a Teacup: What Growing Up in the South Taught Me About Life, Love and Baking Biscuits is a lifestyle book honoring her family’s traditions and her heritage. Part memoir, part instruction manual in all things Southern (delicious recipes, decorating and entertaining tips), Reese offers humor: “You can be nervous as all get out. Just drink a beer and do it anyway,” and recollections from grandmother Dorothea: “Southern women are like whiskey in a teacup… beautiful and presented well on the outside… fierce and very strong on the inside.” Enjoy the cherished customs this actor-author shares, from catching frogs to spiking sweet tea. Brunswick County Library has five branches, all supported by Friends of the Library (FOL), mainly through used book sales. FOL Rourk in Shallotte has a continuous book sale in the Rourk Reading Room and offers great bargains. FOL Southwest Branch has books, videos, DVD and puzzle sales on a daily basis in their book room, open every day and available to the public. FOL Leland offers a continuous book sale with new titles added weekly. FOL Southport and Oak Island has an ongoing book sale at Southport Realty 727 N. Howe St., Southport, and once-monthly book sales from 9 a.m. to noon with special themes and pricing. The Saturday, March 30 theme is “A Beautiful Garden is a Work of Heart,” with all gardening books half off.

This month‟s Senior Spotlight shines on Barbara Morris & Jean Cason. Barbara is a Georgia girl, „born and bred‟, since May of 1942. Her favorite memories are “growing up at my Grandma‟s in Georgia, deep in the country.” Barbara relocated to the Carolinas in the 1950s to work at The Block Shirt Factory in Wilmington. Jean was born in May 1948 in Mecklenburg County. She says her mom made every occasion feel special when she was growing up. Jean worked in the painting business with her husband and father-in-law, eventually creating a business of their own. She moved over to Leland three years ago to be closer to her son, Mark, and has been having the “best time of her life since.” Barbara and Jean became instant friends when they met two years ago at The Brunswick Center at Leland‟s Grand Opening. Barbara and Jean spend their very early mornings, prepping and packing Meals on Wheels and congregate lunches. They enjoy exercise classes and going on walks. Barbara also loves spending time with her granddaughter, Mattea. Both Barbara and Jean name their beautiful families as their biggest accomplishments in life. They advise us to “enjoy life and embrace everyday like it‟s your last.” We are so grateful to have you, Barbara and Jean!

Volunteers

BSRI Volunteers, mark your calendars for a fun night all about you! 4th Annual Volunteers Night Out (Enchanting Vineyard) When: Friday April 5th 5-7 pm

Where: 101 Stone Chimney rd. (Supply Senior Center)

What: Diner, Door Prizes, Live Music (Rick Strickland Band is back!) Wine and Beer, Dancing, Local Vendors and Lots Of Fun! (Bring Cash if you want to shop!) -There will be a $10 entry fee at the door for non-registered volunteer guests. Please wear your volunteer badge! RSVP with your First and Last name and the name of your guest to : spowell@bsrinc.org See you there!

There are proven ways to increase happiness. Joy is something that has to be woven into life. It is a choice that is made with strict intention. Everyday there has to be an active choice to think positively, take care of our bodies, minds and souls.

Yoga (Body): Classes are offered at all 5 of our senior centers. Both men and women can take advantage of this wellness powerhouse! Yoga can make a huge difference in our mood, strength, flexibility, joint health, digestion and so much more. Checkout each center’s activity calendar to see where you can start.

Gratitude (Mind): Practice gratitude. This is a lifestyle that takes work. But the results are priceless. Take some time each day to reflect on what is good in your life. Try to avoid talking negatively about yourself or others. This will generate negativity in your being faster than you can imagine. Break the mold by finding the good in everyday!

Serve (Soul): Serving others is a proven way to increase our sense of purpose and belonging. We have plenty of opportunities for you to expand this part of your life. Our wonderful team of volunteers are an integral part of keeping our programs up and running. Fill out a volunteer application at BSRINC.ORG/VOLUNTEERS and find out how you can serve! -Sarah Powell Volunteer Coordinator BSRI

A special thank you to our chair yoga class with Kathryn in Shallotte for your pictures! Keep calm and Yoga on!
