EDITOR's LETTER

Dear Readers, For me, the 1980’s was the most influential decade of my life. It was the time between tween and teen when I was leaving behind my childhood and becoming a woman. I had so many great memories and when I think back on the happiest times in my life, I always look back to the ‘80s and all their neon glory. I remember watching television, as Lady Diana Spencer became a princess and married Prince Charles. I remember sitting in science class at Catholic School watching as the space shuttle Challenger exploded, killing the entire crew, including Christa McAuliffe, who was to be the first female teacher to go into space. I remember watching the first broadcast of MTV, and going to see Pope John Paul II in 1987. Many times, I could be found bouncing around a stage in a pink tutu, tap dancing or learning how to do hip-hop, like Salt N’ Peppa. My weekends were spent roller skating, writing stories in my Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper, riding my pink bike with the purple handlebar streamers and attempting stunts from the BMX movie or recreating scenes from “The Goonies.” I didn’t worry about getting sunburned at the beach, high cholesterol, eating too much sugar or if I got enough sleep. I could play outside all day (until the street lights came on) with no worries and I felt free - free to live, free to think, free to grow up before cellphones and the internet. In honor of my favorite decade, Her is throwing it back to the ‘80s when our lives were recreations of our favorite John Hughes movies. Come join myself, and six of my best girlfriends, as we relive our electric youth. It’s going to be totally awesome, duh!

Throwback to the

80s BY CHRISTINA RUOTOLO

T

he 1980s was an influential decade filled with medical advancements, innovations in technology, global growth, industrial progress and everything in between. It was the time before cellphones and the invention of the worldwide web. The first artificial heart was implanted in a man in 1982, the wreckage of the Titanic was discovered in 1985, and President Ronald Reagan signed legislation making Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday a federal holiday Jan. 20, 1986. All the while, women were embedded into the workforce building and growing their own companies and expanding outside the home as Sandra Day O’Connor became the first female Justice on the Supreme Court. New inventions were unveiled including the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985, the first Macintosh computer from Steve Jobs and the Pac-Mac video game. “The Oprah Winfrey Show” debuted, everyone went around asking who shot J.R. on “Dallas” and the last episode of “M.A.S.H.” aired on television. Alongside such progress was also devastation and conflict from tensions in the Middle East, the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie Scotland, those infected and dying of Aids, the eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980, the Wall Street crash of 1987 and the Exxon Valdez Oil tanker, which spilled over ten million gallons of oil in the waters off Prince William Sound, Alaska. No matter what happened in the ‘80s both good and bad, it was an influential time in my life. I grew up in the eighties when the economy and industry was growing as well. I remember the day my parents bought me my first vinyl record player and Madonna’s “Like A Virgin” soundtrack. I remember singing all of her songs while roller skating around the dining room table. I remember making sun tea, climbing trees, earning merit badges in the Girl Scouts, cheerleading www.reflector.com/her

and playing Nintendo for hours. I attended a private catholic school, wore uniforms, and was always changing my style from Keds to jelly shoes to acid washed jeans and new hairstyles. I remember wising I was Tess McGill from the movie, “Working Girl,” with purple eye shadow and shoulder pads. I used to sit with the J.C. Penny Catalog circling the pictures of my favorite business suits wishing I could wear lipstick and heels. (What was I thinking?) I lined my walls with posters of teen heart throbs like Michael J. Fox, Jake Ryan from Sixteen Candles, and Kirk Cameron. My friends and I made mixed tapes of love songs for the boys we had crushes on and sang “Girls Just To Have Fun” using our hairbrushes as microphones during sleepovers. From toys to video games to music, movies, and everything in between, the ‘80s were dynamic and if it weren’t for John Hughes and his movie making genius, I would have not decided I wanted to be a writer. For this throwback issue, I wanted to showcase my favorite decade and show that the ‘80s wouldn’t have been as fun and exciting without your best friends. So let me introduce you to six of my friends, who, like me, had a blast in the ‘80s. Each of them reminisce and look back on a decade that changed each of us. If you met Sheri Lawrence today, you would see a funny, faithful friend who has a heart of gold. She has always had these qualities and the ‘80s still live in her. “It is true. ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.’ I was experiencing what being an adult was and how I had taken so many things for granted when living at home, but I still had fun. My family had a boat and spent many weekends at Grimesland Seine Beach where I learned how to ski. I knew the owners so was able to assert by ‘bossiness’ by collecting money for

parking and making sure no one would ‘sneak’ in,” Lawrence said. “Other weekends were spent at Sportsworld roller skating or when I felt especially wild, I would go to the Attic to hear a great band. I would only go to the Attic on Saturday night though because Friday nights were spent with the Ewing family watching ‘Dallas’ and yummy Lorenzo Lamas on ‘Falcon Crest.’” Lawrence was working at then-Pitt County Memorial Hospital in the neonatal unit in the ‘80s and then onto the Boys and Girls Club where she loved working with children. CHRISTINA RUOTOLO “I sought out ways to help and joined The Kiwanis Club and 30 years later I am still serving children through this organization. I learned who I was in the ‘80s and my life today reflects those years. I work with children teaching piano and get to talk my head off in my nail salon. I meet new people all of the time through Kiwanis and selling Scentsy, and can say I have never meet a stranger,” Lawrence said. Now let me introduce you to Kathy March. I have known Kathy since the late-90s when her children attended the same school as the children I was a nanny for. March is such fun to hang out with and our friendship has grown over the years. For her, the ‘80s were a carefree, happy time in her life. “I was in high school, had a great group of friends and little responsibility outside of school and my part-time job. My weekends were spent riding horses, dancing at clubs, going to concerts at the Spectrum in Philadelphia, or taking spontaneous trips to the Jersey shore. I also spent hours either watching MTV and ‘General Hospital’ or listening to my favorite 45s,” March said. “The ‘80s represented a coming of age for me, a time when I developed into my own person with my own set of beliefs and CHRISTIE HIL L values and became independent. The ‘80s were a great time to be young and free.” That carefree attitude still remains for March. She is the mother of three children who are all making their way in the world during their transformative years and March is active in her community as well. If you have ever met my next friend, Kiki Bourbeau, then you have probably laughed your butt off and realized you have a friend for life. She is bold, hilarious, and she is the one you would most likely get in trouble with. We have been in Kiwanis together for years and we always have a memory making time together. For Bourbeau, the ‘80s was her time to explore other avenues beyond her private school life. “The influence of the ‘80s still affect me today. In high school, I felt very misunderstood and rebellious (as many teenagers feel). Music went to a whole new level during this time. MTV came into existence and we now could not only listen to music but saw and related to a visual story that correlated with the lyrics. We all gravitated to the songs were musicians of all different genres came together to benefit worldwide humanitarian efforts during that time — Live Aid, Farm Aid, KATHY MAR ‘We Are the World’ for Africa,” Bourbeau said. CH The other big influence during this time for Bourbeau were coming of age movies. There was always a character everyone could identify with such as the KIKI BOURB prep, the jock, the punk, the brain or the misfit. “There was a similar message EAU throughout many of these movies that although we are different on the outside, we are all similar underneath. The ‘80s influenced me in a way that still impacts my relationships today. With the division in our society, I always think back to the ‘80s feeling of hope and unity. These thoughts always lead me to find our sameness despite our differences when I come in contact with someone new,” Bourbeau said. Bourbeau 2020, formerly known as Carolyn Lawrence (her ‘80s name), 8

Her — March 2020


works with The Shannon Hodges Real Estate group at Keller Williams, is married and had a grown son. I have only known Kunny Brothers for about five years, but it as if we have been friends for years. You know sometimes right away when you build a new friendship that you know will last a long time. Brothers might seem shy upon first meeting her, but once you peel away her exterior shy layer, she is spunky, funny, hardworking and is dedicated to work and family. Brothers was that well-rounded high school student we probably all wished we could be who played soccer and was homecoming queen at her high school three years in a row from 198789. She had a keen eye for fashion, wore shoulder pads, popped the collar of her Polo shirt, loved wearing Jordache jeans and had a lot of perms. “My fondest memories were with my then best friend (and still one of 10

my best friends), Paula Banning. We spent summer days with friends at her house and enjoyed summer trips to Myrtle Beach and Lake Gaston. I had a lead foot and when I got my car at 16, a lot of speeding tickets followed,” Brothers said. She remembers once when she asked her dad for a Jordache purse, not only did he get it for her, but in every color. The most influential thing that happened in the ‘80s was Brothers met her husband when she was 16. He was a few years older and had a motorcycle. They married when she was 18-years-old. This is what ‘80s John Hughes movies are made of — young love and motorcycles. Brothers’ family even had a light-up Juke box in their living room, which I’m sure made for great dance parties after school. The Juke box may be gone, but the memories of the ‘80s will forever remain. Brothers is a real estate agent and Her — March 2020

says she took an entrepreneur class in high school and that was when she first thought about working in real estate. It took a few years of raising babies, but in 2001 she started selling real estate and still does in Greenville at Century 21 Elite Properties. She is married with three grown children. All great girl groups have that one friend that has experienced things we all wish we could as well. I was introduced to Tracy Fryer-Williams a few years ago, as she is friends with the rest of my girl posse. Fryer-Williams is easy-going and funny and I am happy to have met her. She has traveled the furthest during her ‘80s journey and it’s truly extraordinary to hear about the things she witnessed during this time. “During the ‘80s, my father was serving in the U.S. Army and my family was stationed in Frankfurt W. Germany. I was a teenager just like any other. I loved my MTV and Rick Springfield www.reflector.com/her


covered every inch of my bedroom wall. Prince’s Purple Rain concert was one of my favorites. I even wore Swatch watches, and by the time I was 15, tried my first cigarette. I was such a rebel. “School trips were to castles and it was not unusual to grab your friends, hop on a train and end up in France or Amsterdam for the weekend. The Cold War was happening and there were bomb threats at least once a month when fire alarms would sound in the school halls and we would flee and gather on the football field hoping for a false alarm, then show up again to start a new day. “We made it to Brandenburg gate in 1987 to see Ronald Reagan speak those famous words: ‘Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall,’ and I was never so moved, proud or so humbled until I stood with my friends and hundreds of others together with the Germans in ‘89 chanting and cheering when ‘The Wall’ was torn down and East and West Germany finally became one.” Fryer-Williams now lives in Greenville, has her own company called ConstantConnection and has two sons. I love to hear the stories from her childhood. It seems only natural to end our magical ‘80s tour with my friend Christie Hill. Christie is sisters with both Bourbeau and Lawrence, so you can already guess that this one also has a fun journey back to the ‘80s. Hill is a bit more reserved than her two sisters, but you can still find her teaching and performing belly dancing, so her shyness still comes out as a beautiful and exotic dance. Just add a stage and some music and she shines. She has always loved this profession and it was back in the ‘80s when she was first introduced this art form. “I saw a belly dancer on my senior class trip to Florida at The Mercado in 1989. I showed the photo to my husband six years later and said, ‘Oh how I wish I could do that, but I could never do that.’ Thanks to him, I am a professional belly dancer today,” Hill said. Hill loved growing up in the ‘80s because well, really, as she says, “What’s not to love?” “It was a time of Rubik Cubes, MTV, shoulder pads, big hair and Razzles. These were the years that I drove a stick-shift, earned my first paycheck, voted for the first time and learned about the kind of person I wanted to be (see how I worked Johnny Castle in there). Of course, my parents have been my greatest inspiration, but I can’t deny the life lessons tucked away in the music and movies of this decade. I remember actually wanting braces and glasses because the TV show “Square Pegs” and movie, “The Breakfast Club,” made me feel like it was not only OK to be different, but also like, totally awesome,” Hill said. “I found joy in learning about different cultures and different perspectives, and even saw my first live belly dancer, which obviously had an impact on me. Most of all, I learned to never give up on your dreams, stay firm in your faith, and ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ in humanity.” Hill is married, has two children and is co-owner of The Absolute Studio. As you can see, you never know what you will get when you add a group of girlfriends, dressed up in ‘80s gear. Just drop us off in downtown Greenville in the middle of the day as we dance to Madonna laughing like we were teenagers again. I am blessed to have each of these amazing women in my life. They add back the neon and glitter that was the ‘80s. No matter what decade you grew up in, each decade holds fond memories we can hang onto as we grow up and move through the years because we are just getting started. There are many more decades to come! I am reminded of the last few lines from the ‘The Breakfast Club,’ “You see us as you want to see us. We found out that each of is a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal.” There is nothing better to be that all of these things. www.reflector.com/her

Rock Your Skin At Any Age In 1989, Cher sang it best when she said “If I could turn back time, If I could find a way ...” If the ‘80s taught us anything, it was that we should have worn more suncreen, not poured an entire bottle of lemon juice on our hair, and would have drank more water. A throwback to the 80’s doesn’t mean you should treat your skin like it’s still the ‘80s. Even though we didn’t always make the right choices when we were young, we can still turn back the clock now. Below are some incredible products to help you regain your ‘80s glow by restoring your complexion and helping you rock your skin at any age.

MARINATED VEGETABLE SALAD

Health

EASY FAMILY MEALS Mom, you are awesome. Life may be overwhelming at times, but don’t let negotiations with your child about brushing his/her teeth or putting down his/her cellphone interfere with family meal time. Family meal time should not turn into tense discussions. Let meal time become a fun, flavorful and simple event. Healthy food does not mean boring; it’s about eating bright colorful foods that you can customize to suit your family’s tastes. The anchor of a healthful approach to family meal time should involve replacing highly processed foods with natural, whole foods. Tap into your inner chef and create a meal that is a masterpiece your family will enjoy. Decide which lean protein you desire and pair it with a vegetable salad that you can serve in a variety of ways. As an example, roasted chicken can be paired with a marinated vegetable blend on Monday. Leftover chicken can be shredded and mixed with sautéed peppers, onions and fresh Pico de Gallo to create a memorable Taco Tuesday. Below are recipes for easy, versatile dishes.

• 2 cups broccoli florets (small pieces) • 2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes (~10oz) • 2 cups chopped carrots (~4 medium carrots) • 1 cucumber, seeded then chopped • 1 bell pepper (any color,) seeded then chopped • 1 cup sliced red onion For the Vinaigrette Dressing: • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil • 1/2 cup rice vinegar • 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard • 1 teaspoon fresh Thyme • 2 cloves (fresh) garlic, minced • 1 tablespoon of Honey • Salt and pepper to taste

Make the Vinaigrette first: add ingredients to a jar with a tight-fitting lid or bowl then shake or whisk to combine. Add vegetables to a very large bowl then dress with 3/4 of the vinaigrette. Coat very well with dressing. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Toss with remaining vinaigrette and serve.

ROASTED CHICKEN • 1 (5 to 6 pound) roasting chicken • Kosher salt • Freshly ground black pepper • 1 large bunch fresh poultry herbs (thyme, sage, rosemary, and parsley) • 1 tablespoon lemon juice • 1T fresh minced garlic • 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter, melted • Olive oil Preparation: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Remove the chicken giblets. Rinse the chicken inside and out and pat the outside dry. Mix 2 tablespoons olive oil, all of the lemon juice and fresh garlic together in a bowl. Rub mixture under skin of chicken. Brush the outside of the chicken with butter. Salt and pepper the inside and outside of the chicken. Place the fresh herbs in the chicken. Tie the legs together with kitchen string and tuck the wing tips under the body of the chicken. Place in a roasting pan. Roast the chicken for 1 1/2 hours, or until the chicken reaches 165 degrees in the thickest part of the chicken. Allow the chicken to sit for 15 minutes before serving. 18

Tips to prevent foodborne illness while handling chicken: • Use a separate cutting board for raw chicken. • Never place cooked food or fresh produce on a plate, cutting board, or other surface that previously held raw chicken. • Wash cutting boards, utensils, dishes, and countertops with hot soapy water after preparing chicken and before you prepare the next item. • Use a food thermometer to make sure chicken is cooked to a safe internal temperature of 165°F.

They were designed to parody the Cabbage Patch Kids dolls, which were popular at the time. Each card character has a fun, usually alliterative name. 1980: Rubik’s Cube. If there was one item that symbolized the entire ‘80s decade, many people would say it was the brainteaser the Rubik's Cube. This inexpensive item could keep your brain engaged for hours as you twisted and turned.

TRENDS: Shoulder Pads: There was no better way to look professional in the 1980s than to add a little extra volume to your work jacket or sweater that to wear shoulder pads. The bigger the shoulder pads, the more important it seemed you were. Spandex: The ‘80s was the time when exercise was at a peak thanks to Jane Fonda and Richard Simmons’ exercise videos and Disney's channel’s “Mousercise.” Add in a some neon spandex, a cute pair of leg warmers and a matching headband and you were ready to dance your way to a healthy body. 28
