An Ocean of Flowers is washing up on the shores of Coronado with the 2024 Coronado Flower Show.

For over 100 years the Coronado Flower Show has served as the gateway to Spring for our City. Together with the annual Home Front Judging, Coronado comes together to put on its finest suit and greet the world with a riot of color and sound! Take the whole weekend off, enjoy the sights and sounds that Spreckels Park has to offer, wander the streets of Coronado and marvel at the labor of love on display in every home, and close the evening with dinner on Orange Avenue … nothing could be finer on a Spring Day in Coronado.

We are honored to be a part of this annual tradition. Each year we delay the April Magazine to coincide with the Flower Show in order to bring you the program for the weekend, complete with the Home Front Judging results. We hope you enjoy!

And that’s not all that is inside this month’s issue …

“Florals by Locals” returns to this year’s Coronado Flower Show, come on out and see the work of over 22 talented community artists … visit Coronado’s Hidden Gardens with (my very own 5th grade teacher) Susie Heap … Hattie Foote unplugs from Social Media, there is a pot of gold at the end of that rainbow, where you will find the Mother of All Cocktails (prepared by Christine Johnson) … Soroptimist International of Coronado has enjoyed a long history of Empowering Women, come and join their mission … take a look at the Foster & Forever Series of Karrie Jackson … Mary Palumbo makes beautiful things, perhaps there’s an idea or two for us all … and student’s are empowered to “just say no” with Safe Harbor Coronado.

Believe it or not, there are mermaids in Coronado, and the Coronado Chamber of Commerce captured the images on camera, perhaps they washed up on shore in anticipation of the flower show. Meet Island Icon “Sherry Martin” … and take a trip to Columbus Ohio with Kris Grant.

There’s a whole lot to do in this issue of the Coronado Magazine, so take it with you as you explore the annual Coronado Flower Show … and say “Thank You” to a Floral Association volunteer, it takes dedication and hard work to

WHAT PEOPLE ARE READING THIS MONTH

Evie Porter has everything a nice, Southern girl could want: a perfect, doting boyfriend, a house with a white picket fence and a garden, a fancy group of friends. The only catch: Evie Porter doesn’t exist.

The identity comes first: Evie Porter. Once she’s given a name and location by her mysterious boss Mr. Smith, she learns everything there is to know about the town and the people in it. Then the mark: Ryan Sumner. The last piece of the puzzle is the job.

Evie isn’t privy to Mr. Smith’s real identity, but she knows this job will be different. Ryan has gotten under her skin, and she’s starting to envision a different sort of life for herself. But Evie can’t make any mistakes—especially after what happened last time.

Because the one thing she’s worked her entire life to keep clean, the one identity she could always go back to—her real identity— just walked right into this town. Evie Porter must stay one step ahead of her past while making sure there’s still a future in front of her. The stakes couldn’t be higher—but then, Evie has always liked a challenge...

The Women

Women can be heroes. When twenty-year-old nursing student Frances “Frankie” McGrath hears these words, it is a revelation. Raised in the sun-drenched, idyllic world of Southern California and sheltered by her conservative parents, she has always prided herself on doing the right thing. But in 1965, the world is changing, and she suddenly dares to imagine a different future for herself. When her brother ships out to serve in Vietnam, she joins the Army Nurse Corps and follows his path.

As green and inexperienced as the men sent to Vietnam to fight, Frankie is overwhelmed by the chaos and destruction of war. Each day is a gamble of life and death, hope and betrayal; friendships run deep and can be shattered in an instant. In war, she meets—and becomes one of—the lucky, the brave, the broken, and the lost.

But war is just the beginning for Frankie and her veteran friends. The real battle lies in coming home to a changed and divided America, to angry protesters, and to a country that wants to forget Vietnam.

The Women is the story of one woman gone to war, but it shines a light on all women who put themselves in harm’s way and whose sacrifice and commitment to their country

has too often been forgotten. A novel about deep friendships and bold patriotism, The Women is a richly drawn story with a memorable heroine whose idealism and courage under fire will come to define an era.

Kafka On The Shore

This magnificent novel has a similarly extraordinary scope and the same capacity to amaze, entertain, and bewitch. A tour de force of metaphysical reality, it is powered by two remarkable characters: a teenage boy, Kafka Tamura, who runs away from home either to escape a gruesome oedipal prophecy or to search for his long-missing mother and sister; and an aging simpleton called Nakata, who never recovered from a wartime affliction and now is drawn toward Kafka for reasons that, like the most basic activities of daily life, he cannot fathom. Their odyssey, as mysterious to them as it is to us, is enriched throughout by vivid accomplices and mesmerizing events. Cats and people carry on conversations, a ghostlike pimp employs a Hegel-quoting prostitute, a forest harbors soldiers apparently unaged since World War II, and rainstorms of fish (and worse) fall from the sky. There is a brutal murder, with the identity of both victim and perpetrator a riddle - yet this, along with everything else, is eventually answered, just as the entwined destinies of Kafka and Nakata are gradually revealed, with one escaping his fate entirely and the other given a fresh start on his own.

The Fury

This is a tale of murder.

Or maybe that’s not quite true. At its heart, it’s a love story, isn’t it?

Lana Farrar is a reclusive ex-movie star and one of the most famous women in the world. Every year, she invites her closest friends to escape the English weather and spend Easter on her idyllic private Greek island.

I tell you this because you may think you know this story. You probably read about it at the time―it caused a real stir in the tabloids, if you remember. It had all the necessary ingredients for a press sensation: a celebrity; a private island cut off by the wind…and a murder.

We found ourselves trapped there overnight. Our old friendships concealed hatred and a desire for revenge. What followed was a game of cat and mouse―a battle of wits, full of twists and turns, building to an unforgettable climax. The night ended in violence and death, as one of us was found murdered.

But who am I?

My name is Elliot Chase, and I’m going to tell you a story unlike any you’ve ever heard.

2024 Community Landscape Judging Results

The 102nd Coronado Flower Association Home Front Judging results are in! Over one-hundred and fifty community volunteers participated in this funfilled home-appreciation judging process. Awards were handed-out to many deserving home fronts: Blue Ribbons for First Prize, Red Ribbons for Second Prize, Yellow Ribbons for Third Prize and, this year, Green Ribbons to Earth-Friendly home fronts, those who focus on water conservation and minimal maintenance. Additional awards (noted by an asterisk) were given to Blue Ribbon winners in the over sixty-plus (60+) Judging Zones from which a Best Home Front, First Home Front Runner Up, Second Home Front Runner Up and Top Ten Winners were selected. The Coronado Cays Community competed similarly and were awarded The Best in the Cays, First Runner Up and Second Runner Up. A “blooming” good time was had by all! Thank you to the many hands that made this process possible.

Florals by Locals

After a year's hiatus, the Cultural Arts Commission is delighted to announce its return to the Coronado Flower Show with "Florals by Locals," an exhibition showcasing floral -themed artwork by talented local artists.

Taking place over two days during the annual Coronado Flower Show at Spreckels Park, on Saturday, April 20, and Sunday, April 21, this event promises to delight art enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. The exhibition will feature a diverse range of mediums, including watercolors, oils, and mosaics, highlighting the creativity of over 22 artists from the community.

Adding to the experience, local artists will demonstrate their painting techniques on both days, allowing visitors to witness the creative process firsthand. Cultural Arts Commissioners and dedicated volunteers will be available throughout the event to provide insights into the artwork on display and the commission's impactful work within the community.

For those eager to bring a piece of the exhibition home, artwork will be available for purchase directly from the represented artists during the exhibition.

The Cultural Arts Commission continues to provide support and opportunities for local artists to showcase and promote their work within the community. Operating the C3 Gallery at the Coronado Community Center, located at 1845 Strand Way, the commission hosts several exhibitions annually. Currently, the gallery is featuring "PhotoGraphics," a student -curated display of artwork by artists from Coronado School of the Arts and Coronado High School, running through mid -May.

For further details about the Cultural Arts Commission Visual Arts Program or to inquire about upcoming events, please contact coronadoarts@gmail.com or call 619.522.2633.

Coronado’s Hidden Gardens

Each year, connected with our Spring Coronado Flower Show, I so enjoy visiting with Coronado school students and their advisors in their garden areas. The garden clubs at the Middle School and the High School grow produce for the Food Bank in Imperial Beach. Their advisor is our Coronado Library Teen Librarian, Tara Davies, who is also associated with Emerald Keepers.

The High School Garden Club has about 30 members, boys and girls, who work the garden every other Saturday. They grow a Fall Garden crop and a Spring Garden crop. On my visit the student gardeners shared their tangerine and lemon trees and their compost bin with me. Their garden is used to grow crops of Spaghetti Squash, Brussels sprouts, Lettuce, Artichokes, Cucumbers, Broccoli, and both Russet and Sweet Potatoes depending upon the season of the year. They use only natural pest control in their gardens.

When I spoke with the young members of the High School Garden Club, I found many who also have home gardens and are thrilled to provide garden-to-table produce to their family dining tables. They are having fun, learning, and helping others.

The Middle School Garden Club has about ten members who garden on their lunch hour after eating lunch. Lettuce is currently their main crop. Clare and her fellow club members, on the day I visited, were very busy pulling mint from around a Pineapple Sage plant. They were learning quickly that mint has a strong personality and will take over wherever it is planted. Next time, the mint will be

APRIL 2024 | 35

planted in a container all of its own.

Strand Elementary’s visiting day was a short day for students, so I was guided through their garden boxes by Sophia Frost, a faculty member, and their advisor.

This is a special site for a garden in a large open area between the Bay and the Ocean. The garden looks like it is in a resort. Children can enjoy the seating areas in the garden to come and read or, of course, work the garden. The garden club members work the garden weeding and transplanting during lunch on Friday and on Wednesday after school. I saw a “berry berry quite contrary” garden box holding blackberries and strawberries. The young gardeners grow borage there also as a companion plant. Borage is said to make strawberries sweeter. I saw a succulent garden box and a pollinator garden box with lavender, lantana, parsley, and dill for swallowtail butterflies. All pollinators

are welcome here. An aromatherapy box close by has scented geraniums, rosemary, lemon grass, peppermint, chamomile, sage, and carnations.

Christ Church Day School has two garden areas: one for the kindergarten area and one for grades first through sixth. Each classroom is very proud of its garden bed. Two Kindergarten students, Will and Grace, took me straight to their Nasturtium box and explained that the flowers can be “put in your salad to make it pretty and to eat.” Yes, there are no chemical pesticides used here in the student garden. The students showed me succulents that are ready to bloom. The garden has a hummingbird feeder. Will and Grace made sure that I knew that hummingbirds are the only birds that can fly backward. Other boxes in the garden contain Lavender, Tomatoes, Petunias, and California Poppies. The work area of the garden has many colorful watering cans.

On to the first grade, where I was greeted by Giuliana and Hannah, who shared their Healthy Snacks garden. There are many healthy-looking plants in this gardening box: Rainbow Carrots, Tiny Tomatoes, “the tiniest in the world,” they told me, as well as Kale, Cucumbers, and Arugula. A tasty garden indeed; Evie and Max of the second grade were showing great pride in sharing their “Brighten Your Day” garden, which is the first garden box one sees upon entering the overall garden. So many beautiful flowers grow there.

There is an All School Strawberry Patch close by and a Hibiscus bush and a Rose among the boxes. Ava and Charlotte shared their third-grade class Pizza Garden. Yes, they do have a Pizza Party during the year. The moms bring dough and cook lunch. The Pizza Garden grows Thyme, Tomatoes, Bell Peppers, Basil, and Oregano. They have Strawberries for dessert from the All-School Strawberry

APRIL 2024 | 37

Patch. I saw Cosmos in the garden, too. Of course, one has to have flowers on the table for a Pizza Party.

Grace, from the fourth grade, was very excited to share the class Salsa Garden. This class box grows Red and White Onions, Cilantro, Tomatoes, Cabbage for Tacos, and Tomatillos to make Salsa Fresca; they have a plant sale each year with sucker tomato clippings along with Arugula from the first-grade garden. No chemical fertilizers are used.

On to the fifth grade, where Asher and Georgia explained their garden in great detail. I saw Nasturtiums growing there, and they explained to me that this versatile and attractive plant can add color and vibrancy to the garden. Basil grows in this box, too. They started it from seed indoors and transplanted it into the garden. They gave it regular pruning to make it bushier.

Their Marigolds were also started indoors from seed and are in the garden thriving in full sun. The Cosmos in the garden is coming along nicely. It will have a colorful daisy bloom and will thrive through the summer, attracting birds, bees, and butterflies.

Taylor shared the sixth-grade garden box with me and talked to me about companion planting. Zinnias and Tomatillos grow there. When discussing the tomatillos, she shared about learning about the Mayan and Aztec civilizations. This garden uses wild native daisies as a cover crop.

Christ Church Day School uses a Fall and Spring garden planting schedule. They do a soup and salad meal for the Parish in the late fall. They have made a very tasty Broccoli with Cheddar soup. Broccoli and Lettuce are cool-season crops.

Our Coronado students are certainly lucky to be learning life skills with their work in these beautiful gardens.

Pull The Plug

My kids will ALWAYS eat organic food; my kids will NEVER have screen time, and my kids will ONLY play with wood blocks that I whittled myself. Blah. Blah. Blah. I am confident most parents have set wildly unrealistic parenting expectations for themselves at some point in the parenthood journey, and I am no exception. Obviously, it all comes from a place of love and trying to be the best parent you can be, and if you do all these things, good for you. I can only speak from my experience (which includes chicken nuggets and iPads).

I feel like the pandemic really sent my parenting into a tailspin. I went too hard. I had our days planned out, complete with a 30-day Lego challenge, which, spoiler alert, we didn’t even make it to day seven. We got burned out fast. We relied heavily on YouTube for art lessons and dance breaks, which was great at the time. But the flip side is the kids fell into a YouTube black hole, it became part of their daily viewing even after the end of the pandemic. I thought it was innocent enough, silly videos like pranks or gaming. Then, all of a sudden, it felt like every time I turned around, there was

Mr. Beast (a popular YouTube personality) yelling about chocolate and money in my living room. It started to give me an uncomfortable physical reaction, like my skin was crawling. I realized I, too, had fallen into a YouTube black hole; I got used to it being a babysitter while I got things done. I felt so disappointed in myself, I was lazy parenting. So, on a random Tuesday night after the kids went to bed, I went and deleted YouTube from our TV and devices. It felt SO good. The next day, I notified everyone, and guess what? They could not have cared less; in fact, they almost seemed relieved, too. I didn’t take away screen time altogether; let’s not get too crazy!

With that lesson learned, I feel another situation brewing in my future. One that scares me ten times more than YouTube. I was lucky enough to grow up without social media; I wasn’t even introduced to it until the middle of college. Myspace and Facebook, or Spacebook as my grandmother thought it was called, were where we went to update our very exciting statuses like “What should I have for dinner?” or “I don’t like homework.” Really riveting conversations were being had those days. But for the most part, it

MY LIFE: HATTIE FOOTE

was simple, nothing like what it is today. So, this moment feels like what I was talking about earlier: I don’t want my kids to have social media like ever, or at least until they can fully understand its power, good and bad. Is this another unrealistic expectation? And don’t get me started on how I fully feel like a hypocrite being active on social media. I use it a ton for work, keeping in touch with friends, and saving thousands of recipes I will never make! Sigh. I don’t know; I’m just yelling into the void, and the thing is, at the end of the day, we each just must follow our gut as parents and hope we are doing what’s right for our family.

A hill I was ready to die on was that my kids didn’t need Apple watches until they were in high school, and boy did I hear about it. My daughter argued with me that kindergarteners had them, and I would argue that “back in my day, I got a pager when I was in high school.” That wasn’t a strong argument on my end; it just led to confusion about what a pager was. I didn’t even get to tell her that not once did I receive a page, and I looked like an on-call surgeon or a drug dealer. After lots of discussions, my husband and I decided to get her one for her tenth birthday, which, trust me, the privilege is not lost on me. But it has been life-changing in that it gives her a little more freedom while giving me peace of mind. And the text messages are so cute from her. Just no social media, nope, not happening.

Sending all of you parents strength and love as we navigate this wild adventure, and just remember to go easy on yourself and others because we are all trying the best we can. Even my parents when they allowed me to step out of the house with a pager attached to my waistband!

The Mother Of All Cocktails

Spring has sprung, and the beauty of new flowers, the smell of orange blossoms, and gorgeous weather is upon us. April is considered the month when nature comes to life and opens up to new possibilities. People are coming out of their winter doldrums, the days are warmer, and to the delight of students everywhere, school is about to end.

April has also long been set aside as the month of awareness. We celebrate Earth Day on April 22 each year. Earth Day was created in 1970 to raise awareness for environmental protection. This green day on the calendar now includes a wide range of events coordinated globally by earthday.org, including 1 billion people in more than 193 countries. There is a theme for each year we commemorate Earth Day. 2024 is “Planet vs. Plastics.” The hope is to create an understanding of the health risks of using plastics, as well as a realization of the pollution and harm plastics are creating in our environment.

No matter which side you support on the debates about global warming, electric cars, or plastics, we can all agree that protecting this planet and trying to make it a more beautiful place is the right thing to do. None of these issues have to be a political argument or create a fractured community. It becomes a chance to work together for a cause that affects all of us. If you would like to get involved in Coronado, you can contact emeraldkeepers.org and find out about the volunteer programs they have to keep our island clean.

Take the time to enjoy all April has to offer by sitting on your front porch or roof deck with a cocktail that embodies the colors of our beautiful planet. While enjoying this Mother Earth cocktail, contemplate being a part of the cause to make the Earth a better place for future generations. ◆

Ingredients

1 ounce coconut rum

1 ounce dark rum

2 ounces pineapple juice

1 ounce Blue Curacao

Orange slices

Ice Martini glass

Mixology

Add the coconut rum, dark rum, and pineapple juice to a shaker filled with ice. Shake the ingredients until well-chilled. Pour the blue curacao into the chilled martini glass. Add the shaken mixture to the glass (strained) and top off with an orange slice on the rim of the glass.

Carve the orange slice in the shape of the sun for Earth Day!

WHAT’S IN SEASON?

What’s in Season? Blood Oranges!

While this fruit’s name may sound menacing, the blood orange is actually just a natural mutation of the standard oranges you know and love. The main difference between the two is the antioxidant found in blood oranges, anthocyanin. This antioxidant gives the blood orange its recognizable deep red color and also provides the fruit with extra health benefits that reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases. The blood orange also has anti-cancer properties, which reduce the body’s damage from free radicals, decreasing the chances that cells will become cancerous. They are also believed to aid in weight loss, improve gut health, and improve your body’s immunity.

This sweet yet tart and tangy fruit is not only beautiful but extremely versatile. Blood oranges can be utilized in both sweet and savory dishes, from salads to cakes and everything in between. And, of course, they can be enjoyed on their own as a quick and delicious snack. April is one of the last months that the blood orange will be in season in California, so don’t forget to grab some today!

In 1952, Coronado Soroptimist had over 800 attendees at their Regional Conference in Coronado at the Hotel Del. At that time, there were 125 clubs in the Southwestern Region.

Soroptimist International of Coronado — Women Empowering Women

Founded in 1921, Soroptimist International is a global volunteer organization of over 60,000 women working to aid other women and girls across 120 countries. When the first Soroptimist Club was founded in Oakland, women were prohibited from joining service organizations. The women behind one of the first female service organizations in America would not let this stop them; rather, this limitation would only fuel the Soroptimist mission, empowering women to step up for each other on a global scale.  Soroptimist International is unique to other service organizations in that it has a special consultative status with the

United Nations Economic and Social Council, which oversees U.N. activities and policies promoting and protecting human rights. The organization’s name comes from a Latin word that translates to “best for women,” which perfectly encapsulates its mission.

The international organization aims to provide the education and training women and girls need for economic empowerment. This is done via the consultative status focusing on issues such as human trafficking, elder abuse, female genital mutilation (FGM), women in the workplace, women in the economy, education, gender equality, and water.

The organization, which is growing

annually, focuses on four core values to reach its goals: gender equality, education, empowerment, and diversity and fellowship. Soroptimists realize that “when women and girls are educated, they have [the] opportunity, choice, and power to make healthy decisions for themselves and their families.”

As of 2024, Soroptimist International has expanded to include over 1,000 individual Soroptimist Clubs, including one right here in Coronado. In 1947, 21 career women signed the charter to create the Soroptimist International Club of Coronado. These women ranged from school teachers to photographers, nurses to store owners, cosmetologists, and more.

APRIL 2024 | 49

In its first year, the club immediately got to work fulfilling national and international Soroptimist needs while also dedicating time to helping the local community. In their local efforts, the club raised money to support the Coronado Hospital’s Building Fund and the Coronado Library, as well as money for scholarships, local school sports teams, and Girl Scout troops.

As the women’s rights movement of the ‘60s and ‘70s welcomed the second wave of feminism across the United States, the Soroptimist Club of Coronado and the international organization shifted focus to whole-heartedly fight against the discrimination women faced daily. This theme has continued for decades, consistently growing the number of women and girls positively affected by the club.

Currently, the club does this by splitting its efforts between scholarships for girls and women to further their education, organizations that serve women and girls, and projects and organizations that educate about prevention or assist survivors of human trafficking and domestic violence.

The local scholarships are awarded in two categories: high school girls who

have demonstrated leadership and the ability to positively impact their community and women who are the sole support for their family and are working towards training or an advanced degree and financial independence. In the latter category, two scholarships are awarded to students at Southwestern College, along with the club’s signature scholarship program, the Live Your Dreams Awards. Recipients of these awards are often survivors of domestic abuse or

human trafficking who need assistance paying for books, tuition, transportation, and childcare.

The recipients receive much more than just financial assistance, as Coronado Soroptimist members step in to help through every step of the higher education and career training process, helping with anything from mentoring to transfer applications, career coaching, housing assistance, and even providing these women with furniture and ap-

propriate workwear. “Our club provides women with access to all kinds of programs and groups that are doing work on behalf of women,” said Genevieve Rohan, 2023-2024 President of Soroptimist International of Coronado. “We get to hear from people who are doing amazing work in the community, and if one of our members writes up a grant, we can give that organization funding. All the money we raise each year is used to fund our programs and scholarships.”  Rohan has been a Soroptimist member since 2009, when she met some current members and immediately realized their overlapping goals. “I could tell the group was full of a lot of fun, successful, hardworking, and dedicated members,” Rohan explained. “I was impressed to meet a few 30-year members who were passionate about the club and its mission to help improve the lives of women and girls… At the end of the meeting, the ladies suggested I join.” Within a year, Rohan was Club President, then moved on to the role of the District III Director, where she was the point person for all the Soroptimist Club Presidents in the Desert Coast Region along with the clubs in Alpine, Brawley, Borrego Springs, El Centro, Holtville, La Jolla, La Mesa, Lemon Grove, Mission Bay, Mission Valley, San Diego, Valley De Oro, and Yuma.

“We have at least one program a month where we learn about ways we can help,” Rohan continued. While the number of people and programs benefitting from the work of Coronado Soroptimists is too long to list, a few include victims of domestic violence, veteran women, human trafficking, transitional housing, foster girls, inner-city youth, Generate Hope, Coronado SAFE, Monarch School for homeless students, Casa Hogar Sion Orphanage, Camp Able, Soroptimists Together Against Trafficking (STAT), San Diego Youth Foundation, Voices For Children, Clean Water proj-

ects in Mexico, San Diego Family Justice Center, United Through Reading, Ronald McDonald House, STARS program for women and children escaping human trafficking, and many, many more.

Coronado Soroptimist Club is an integral part of the Coronado community, and its members are proudly involved in local events and fundraisers, passing their selfless message along to others. “We like to get out into the community to let people know who we are. We have enjoyed participating in the Halloween event hosted by the city,” started Rohan. “We let children pick two of their favorite candies, then we ask them to give one to kids in an orphanage in Mexico…The children are so generous that we have

had kids try to give us all their candy. We do this as a fun way to model generosity and sharing from a young age.”

In the seven-plus decades since its inception, the Soroptimist Club of Coronado has become a staple in the community and the gold standard for humanitarianism. To honor the club’s endless impact, April 28, 2018, was declared Soroptimist International Day in Coronado, complete with a proclamation by the City.

This month, we will find out how naturally stimulate hair growth and nurture healthier, stronger locks without the need for harsh chemicals or expensive treatments.

Why do we lose hair every day?

Hair loss can be attributed to various factors such as over brushing, exposure to heat and sun, aging, hormonal changes, genetics, vitamin deficiencies, and the use of harsh chemicals in hair products like dyes and straightening products. It's crucial to understand the root causes of hair loss to effectively combat this issue.

How much hair loss is considered excessive?

On average, it's normal to lose up to 100 hairs per day. However, if you notice an increased amount of hair shedding during washing, styling, or waking up to find hair on your pillow, it may indicate a more significant problem that requires attention.

How can we address the problem of hair loss naturally?

To combat hair loss naturally, we have put together a few tips to help promote hair growth and strength.

1. Food and ingredients for healthier hair: Certain foods and ingredients can work wonders for promoting hair health. items rich in iron, calcium, and vitamin D in your diet to support strong and luscious hair growth.

2. Shampooing and Conditioning: For a healthy mane, aim to

shampoo each time you wash your hair and condition just once a week. This routine will help maintain scalp health and prevent issues like dandruff, which can lead to hair loss.

7. Avoid Harmful Ingredients: Keep an eye out for shampoos and conditioners free from parabens and sulphates, as these chemicals can be damaging to your hair. Natural and organic products may be a bit pricier, but they are undoubtedly worth the investment in the long run.

8. Hair Loss Tips: If you're dealing with hair loss, handle your hair with care. Avoid brushing it when wet, wait before blowdrying, and start from the bottom when detangling. Consider using a mix of aloe vera and vitamin E as a styling cream and heat protectant to promote healthy, strong hair.

Drug Prevention Empowers Students To Say No

An ambulance waits outside of Coronado Middle School. Pizza boxes and beer cans litter the sixth-grade science classroom. Students are staggering around the field. Teachers and staff are somber and serious, and the student body is subdued and quiet. It sounds like a nightmare unfolding. Thankfully, this is not the terrifying scene of an actual emergency. This is the choreographed Drug Prevention Program running at full speed for all sixth-grade

students in Coronado.

Every year, Safe Harbor Coronado collaborates with Coronado Middle School, Sacred Heart Parish School, Christ Church Day School, and countless community volunteers to immerse all sixth-grade students in an experiential program highlighting the dangers of substance use and abuse and providing a robust drug prevention curriculum. The four-hour program breaks the sixth graders into small groups and each group takes turns navigating different scenes and stations that use different techniques to educate

APRIL 2024 | 69
“a powerful morning of engagement, education, real world experience and support”

students about the dangers of substances and empowering them with the knowledge and skills to resist the temptation.

Arguably the most impactful aspect of the program are the scenes. These are a series of skits that put students in the middle of a peer’s big decisions. The actors in the skits are fellow sixth grade students and their parents, high school students, Coronado Police, Fire and EMT services, plus hospital staff. The groups follow a fellow sixth grade student as they navigate being offered a vape in school and attending a party. At first, the student is able to resist the temptation to try vaping when offered, demonstrating strong refusal skills. But later, they cave to the pressure, ingest a proffered substance, and fall the floor convulsing. The party goers are forced to decide how to react. Paramedics arrive and rush the unresponsive student to the hospital. From here, students watch as parents arrive and receive the terrifying news of an overdose with an unknown prognosis. To watch a fellow student and their parents face the unknown because of one bad choice elicits extreme emotions and makes the skit feel real. It is a poignant journey of an alltoo-common scenario in schools across America, and one that students take to heart.

Following the skits, students rotate through stations that provide further substance use and abuse education, prevention strategies, and opportunities to debrief the skits. Stations are designed using different learning modalities and evidencebased techniques that reach a multitude of learning styles. The goal is to capture all students, keep them engaged, and make them think deeply about their choices. They include peer-to-peer and clinician led question and answer sessions, a discussion with a pharmacist, presentations from health care professionals, an opportunity to practice refusal skills, and a chance to practice positive emotional coping skills. Two of the most hands-on activities highlight how the body reacts to substances. The first simulates the negative longterm effects of substances on the

body as students must exercise while only breathing through a straw. The second simulates what it feels like to operate while intoxicated by using ‘drunk goggles’ provided by Coronado Police Department.

Together, the skits and stations provide a powerful morning of engagement, education, real world experience and support. This experience leaves many feeling emotional yet educated and empowered. Still, some questions may remain. A followup question-and-answer session with a panel of participants is hosted the following evening for community parents. The panel includes a clinician, high school students, health care professionals, local police, and Safe Harbor Coronado Staff. This allows for clarification on difficult topics and an opportunity to follow up with deeper questions and conversations, which in turn, creates deeper understanding about what is most important to our community around this topic.

The Drug Prevention Program is an immersive program designed to have a lasting impact on kids and help guide positive life choices. By creating real-world scenarios and hands on activities, students get the opportunity to practice and prepare for the future. Unfortunately, substances including drugs and alcohol are present in our community and accessible by our young people. The Drug Prevention Program is one way we can help our kids grow in their skills, provide supports and resources early, and help set them up for a lifetime of success by helping them make better choices for their mind and body as they grow.

Safe Harbor Coronado provides low-cost counseling, youth and parenting programs, and community education. For more information go to SafeHarborCoronado.org, sign up for the e-newsletter, and follow us on social media @ SafeHarborCoronado to make sure you never miss a Safe Harbor Coronado event!

Mermaids walk among us on Coronado Island! Here we meet Coronado Art & Wine Festival featured artist Stefanie Bales at the Del’s seafood restaurant Serẽa.

If Hollywood was casting a remake of mermaid movie Splash - celebrating its 40th Anniversary this yearStefanie Bales would be a shoe-in Not only is she six feet tall, her paintings conjure ethereal ocean scenes, and her best-known piece is titled Sirens (see below)

Stefanie describes her work, from fine art to murals, as “Whimsical, serene, colorful and uplifting My intention is to make you feel at peace and maybe a little nostalgic. I’m definitely not the angstful artist, the process is a soothing therapy to me!”

Each piece is unique because her landscapes are composites of multiple places, mixing ideas and scale

“It’s like when you close your eyes - the way you remember things in bits and pieces, and only the best parts! I eliminate the noise and paint the essence ”

Stefanie pauses to savor a sip of her chilled cocktail on the sunny Serea terrace. This seemed an apt place to celebrate her festival “featured artist” status and it turns out she is friends with Clique Hospitality’s JT Thomason and often partners with local beverage company Melograno for her gallery events

Today Stefanie favors the Guava Sunset Margarita and finds the Peafect Porto deliciously refreshing Fugu Del wins top marks for originality of flavor and presentation

“At heart I’m a wine girl so I’m really looking forward to the festival. Art and wine go hand in hand. I tease during my painting workshops that it is empirically proven that you are a better a painter after wine - you get a little looser, a little more brave!”

As well as her BFA degree, Stefanie says, “I’ve done a lot of very academic wine-tasting in Tuscany and France!

“Melograno makes blue agave wine-based cocktails in beautiful cans, I love the Pina Colada (with gold shell motif design - of course!) it feels such a treat ”

But, having lived for a while in Santa Barbara, my go-to is a Pinot Noir from the Santa Rita Hills ”

Any other recommendations? “If I’m going to drink white its a Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand and my rosé choice would be fro m Provence!”

Thanks for the tips, we’ll check in with you again at the festival and see if you ’ ve found any new favorites to enjoy with your fellow mermaids!

Island Icon Sharron “Sherry” Handly Martin: The Accidental Activist Who Helped Change History:

This piece was adapted and reprinted with permission from the St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes School magazine, The Saints Life.

It was 2:30 a.m., on July 9, 1967, when 8-year-old Michelle Martin heard a loud knock at the front door of her Coronado, Calif., home. In 1967, this small town was full of Navy families, and the Martins were no exception.

Sleeping adjacent to the front hall, Michelle was jolted awake by the sharp rap at the door. Rubbing her eyes, she jumped out of bed. “It totally scared me,” she remembers. Clad in her nightgown, she slowly opened the front door. There, silhouetted by the porch light, was a man standing erect in his Navy uniform, his face ghoulishly illuminated by a flashlight under his chin. He asked to speak to her mother, Sherry Martin.

Michelle ran down the hall to wake Sherry, a graduate of the St. Agnes Class of 1952. She, too, was startled by the commotion on the front porch, but Sherry’s maternal instincts kicked in. “Go back to bed, honey. Everything is fine.”

Sherry knew everything was not fine. Military families like the Martins did not receive visits in the middle of the night from U.S. government officials unless something had gone terribly wrong.

Composing herself, Sherry approached the man at her front door, dreading what she was about to hear. Solemnly, he

delivered the news: Ed’s A-4 Skyhawk attack plane had been shot down while on an air strike over North Vietnam. He had managed to safely eject from his plane and parachute to the ground, where Ed was immediately surrounded by villagers. It was assumed he was captured, but they honestly did not know. Ed was missing in action.

Missing? How could he be missing? Casualties were a fact of life in the military. Men were killed in combat. But missing? It seemed incomprehensible.

The United States was in the middle of a war with North Vietnam, a country

that was refusing to provide a full accounting of the American servicemembers it was holding captive as prisonersof-war. Was Ed alive or dead? Was Sherry a wife or a widow? She would not know for four years.

The military had no structure or policy in place for families other than notification by a senior officer or a chaplain, who famously told one wife whose husband was a prisoner-of-war, “I’m here for you.

I’m in my office Monday through Friday, 8:30 to 4:00.”

What’s worse, Sherry and other families whose husbands were miss-

ing or held captive were admonished to “keep quiet.” In the belief that the North Vietnamese would use any information as propaganda, Sherry and other wives in her predicament were told not to reveal to anyone outside of their immediate family that their husbands were captured or missing. As one MIA wife opined, “Now, how do you live like that?”

But they did. For a while.

Each military service issued its own guidelines for wives. “The Navy Wife,” updated in 1955, was one such book. It painted a picture of an exciting and glamorous life for young women lucky enough to marry a naval officer: social activities, world travel, and exposure to national and international military leaders, diplomats, and politicians. The tome also issued a warning: Navy wives must get used to waiting. “What is more, they must learn to wait patiently…. In such situations, it’s bad enough to feel tense and jittery, but it is worse to show it.” Wives had to love the Navy—and its hardships—as much as their husbands did. Military wives did not disparage the

military; they did not violate the pecking order and protocols of the military; and they did not reveal their personal “burden” to anyone. Until Vietnam, this expectation permeated military culture.

Days turned into months and then years of waiting. How would families manage financially, emotionally? They wondered: Were they wives or widows?

Fast forward to October 1968 when Sherry’s friend and neighbor Sybil Stockdale decided to break the silence. Married for more than two decades and the mother of four boys, Sybil was the wife of Navy Cmdr. Jim Stockdale. By October of 1968, he had been a captive of the North Vietnamese for three years. Sybil recognized that Hanoi was winning the battle of propaganda in the media. And she watched the antiwar activists claim that the American captives were being treated well.

She knew otherwise. With the help of intelligence officials, she and Jim had been exchanging encoded letters. She had become a spy. His secret messages revealed that the men were being

tortured and placed in isolation for long periods of time.

Sherry and Sybil Stockdale, along with hundreds of other POW and MIA wives, rolled up their sleeves and, armed only with paper and pen, phone books and telephones, started writing and calling Washington. In January 1969, on the eve of President Richard Nixon’s inauguration, they deluged the White House with two thousand telegrams, urging the new president to “Please remember those who have offered so much for our country, the men who are prisoners of war in Vietnam. Don’t forget them now. Please insist on their immediate release through negotiations in Paris.”

They traveled to Paris for a showdown with the North Vietnamese, demanding an accounting of the missing men and better treatment for the POWs. They walked the halls of Congress and testified on the floor of the House and Senate. They traveled around the world, meeting with world leaders who could influence the North Vietnamese, like Pope Paul VI and Indira Gandhi. They

appeared on national television and the covers of Life and Look magazines.

For Sherry, keeping busy with the other wives gave her purpose and staved off the loneliness and the dreams of reuniting with Ed—dreams she could not afford to have. “I generally forced myself to be so busy that by the time 9 o’clock came around, I was ready to go to bed. I’d fall into a deep sleep.” She had to stay focused on her reality: the war was not going to end any time soon, which meant her husband faced years in captivity.

As Doug Mustin St. Denis ’55, a neighbor and friend of Sherry’s, remembered, “Sherry began every sentence with ‘When Ed comes home.’” She never lost her faith. In a letter Doug wrote to Ed when he came home, she wrote about Sherry: “[She is] a beautiful, courageous lady, and if she ever for one moment gave up hope, she certainly kept it a secret.”

By 1972, a Harris poll concluded that 75% of Americans believed the United

States should stay the course in Vietnam until all the POWs were released. The fate of the 591 men had become central to peace negotiations, eclipsing the fate of the thousands who were fighting and dying on the frontlines. That’s how influential these women had become. Every war produces prisoners. But only since the Vietnam War have prisoners become political hostages, so valuable that preventing them in future wars has become a strategic imperative—not for humanitarian reasons, but to avoid having to make compromises to get them home.

Today, the United States will still tolerate casualties, but we will not tolerate missing men or POWs. We now expend unlimited resources, deploying special forces to rescue just one POW, whether that man is in Bosnia, Iraq, Somalia, or Afghanistan. This fundamental shift in American policy was initiated by this small band of wives.

And when the Paris Peace Accords were finally signed in January of 1973,

and Ed Martin and the other 590 men were released—some after more than eight years in captivity—their homecoming was a national celebration. Americans got up in the middle of the night to watch their release live on national television. While most Vietnam veterans returned home to an ungrateful nation, the Vietnam POWs received homecoming parades, keys to the city, lifetime passes to Major League Baseball, free vacations, national media tours, and a celebrity-studded White House dinner.

The iconic black and white POW/ MIA flag created by these women, the one that flies above the White House, the Capitol, and every post office in the United States is a reminder of our national commitment to “leave no man behind.”

We have a handful of gutsy women, like Sherry Martin, to thank for that. They were resolute in their commitment, refusing to keep quiet. They were… unwavering.

Columbus, Ohio

A culinary journey through Ohio’s flavorful capital

On the way home from my summer in New England, I decided to stop over in a Midwest city that I had heard on good authority was a “culinary city on the rise”— Columbus, Ohio.

Seriously, Columbus, Ohio, a culinary destination? I mean, you’d expect that of New York City, or San Francisco or Las Vegas, but Columbus? I was intrigued, and ready to indulge!

Now, after visiting several restaurants and food halls in the Buckeye State’s capital, I can assure you that I’d make a trip back to Columbus just to eat – and maybe take a cooking class or two. Lucky for me, and you, Southwest Airlines flies there regularly and has just added a couple of nonstops.

First, some stats that I found surprising: With a population nearing one million, Columbus is the second largest city in the Midwest, after Chicago. It’s also the third largest state capital (after Phoenix and it’s closing in fast on Austin).

Years ago I heard that Columbus was voted the most livable city in the country. That stuck in my mind. It still ranks high on livability charts, which might be why it’s now growing faster than any other city in the United States. Columbus is predicted to grow 1.1 percent a year through the year 2050.

It’s a university town, home to Ohio

State University, with the third largest student body of any university in the United States (after Texas A&M and University of Central Florida).

More than 16 Fortune 1000 companies and five Fortune 500 companies call Columbus home, offering attractive job opportunities to the city’s 22,000 annual college graduates.

The fashion industry is part of Columbus’s creative side – it’s home to L Brands (Victoria’s Secret, Bath & Body Works, Pink) with the largest concentration of fashion designers outside of New York City and Los Angeles. Who knew?

On another front, Intel recently chose the Columbus region for its newest chip manufacturing facility, giving rise to a new moniker, the “Silicon Heartland.” Still, no single industry accounts for more than 18 percent of Columbus’s employment.

Spicing things up is Columbus’s rich history and the revitalization of two of its most historic areas: German Village and The Short North, followed by the development of the Scioto River that runs through its downtown.

Add in some wonderful museums, a fabulous conservatory and botanical garden that dates back to 1895, parks and bikeways throughout the city, an affordable housing market, and you’ve got a recipe for a mighty sweet lifestyle.

German Village retains a residential character that captivates, day or night.

German Village

A highway bridge is all that separates German Village from Columbus’s downtown. Once in the Village, you know you have discovered a very special place. About half the streets are lined with brick pavers, so are most of the sidewalks. It’s not “kitschy;” it’s authentic.

The area dates back to the founding of the city in 1814, when German immigrants first settled the area, many to farm. Immigration picked up mightily in the mid-1800s due to war and famine in Germany; by 1865 nearly one-third of all Columbus residents were German. Most lived in the South End of town, which retained the German language in its schools, churches and daily newspapers.

Most homes were constructed of sturdy red brick with limestone foundations and slate roofs. Many of the original cottages were one-and-a-half stories; two rooms and a fireplace down below, one large sleeping room above. The homes are built close together, sometimes just inches apart. Instead of driveways, most homes had gardens. Newfound prosperity allowed some residents to build larger homes; Queen Anne and Italianate homes were added to the neighborhood.

Before zoning laws came into being, commercial buildings began dotting the neighborhood, though few blocks had more than one or two commercial buildings, allowing the Village to retain its largely residential character. Many residents “lived above the store.”

The twentieth century brought decline to the South End, especially during World War I when strong anti-German sentiment descended upon the community of a largely American-born population. German books were burned, German street names were changed, German newspapers closed and the German language was not spoken in public. As residents became Americanized, they often moved into other areas of the city and the South End became zoned for manufacturing. It had become ne-

Cento, Cameron Mitchell Restaurant’s 100th restaurant, had just opened in German Village when I visited. It’s a charming venue, with a vine-covered entry leading to the hostess stand, a lovely courtyard and fountain to the right, and indoor dining with a warm and intimate atmosphere.

glected, blighted and became, in short, a slum. In the misguided era of “urban renewal,” the city demolished one-third of the neighborhood to make way for a new interstate highway system.

But not so fast, said Frank Fetch, a city employee who rose up to fight for the community. In 1959, he and his father-in-law had bought and restored one of the cottages on Wall Street. The following year, he gathered a group of like-minded citizens and created the German Village Society, a nonprofit organization charged with preservation and rehabilitation (and eventual renaming) of the Old South End. The Society worked to have the entire area rezoned from manufacturing and commercial to high density residential.

Following the Society’s petition to the National Park Service, German Village was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on Dec. 30, 1974. In 1980, its boundaries were expanded to the current 233-acre footprint.

More than 1,600 buildings have been restored since 1960, and German Village is credited as one of the most premiere restoration districts in the world. It is

one of, if not the, most desirable places to live in all Columbus.

Today, visitors like me make a beeline to German Village to shop, dine and take photos of the character-filled homes, restaurants and streetscapes.

Start your day with a coffee at Stauf’s, meander through the stacks at the 32room Book Loft, shop for clothes, jewelry and art and then return for dinner to dine at one of the upscale restaurants in the village. You’ll definitely need a reservation for Cento or Chapman’s Eat Market!

The Book Loft is a good idea any time of day or night

The Short North – the Art and Soul of Columbus

The Short North Arts District – a onemile corridor of High Street - is framed with 17 arches that light up the night, paying homage to Old Columbus that was once known as “the arch city.” The Short North is Columbus’s most happening place, home to dozens of restaurants, nightclubs (many with rooftop decks), art galleries and boutiques.

But it wasn’t always so. In the mid20th century, streets here were crimeridden and police dubbed the area “The Short North,” to define the mile that was north of downtown and just short of Ohio State University.

In 1978 the city’s newly built Convention Center at one end of the Short North highlighted how neglected the area had become. The successful renewal of German Village in the 1960s and historic tax credits gave savvy developers

ideas for the Short North Arts District, and in the 1980s the grandeur of High Street’s historic buildings and potential for redevelopment began to attract business owners.

Today, the district is filled with public art and art galleries that exist in a symbiotic relationship with the restaurants of the district. High Street is also filled with public art – mosaics, sculpture, and murals are found at every intersection and in unexpected spots.

Best time to visit? The first Saturday of each month from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. for Gallery Hop! In addition to special exhibits and performers inside galleries, restaurants and salons, you’ll find street performers that might include saxophonists, stilt walkers, singers and dance troupes throughout the district.

Many Short North restaurants and clubs, like Cameron’s Mitchell’s Lincoln Social, feature rooftop dining.

APRIL 2024 | 87

Next, add in some personalities!

Columbus was once nicknamed “Flavortown” for being the birthplace of Celebrity chef Guy Fieri, host of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Now Fieri is planning on opening an Italian-themed restaurant, yet unnamed, later this year in his native city.

Columbus native Avishar Barua, a Top Chef Season 18 contestant, has opened two Columbus restaurants over the past two years, Joya’s, a Bengali American daytime café in Worthington, and Agni in Columbus’ Brewery District. He also appeared on “Beat Bobby Flay,” where he was victorious over the Iron Chef.

Alexis Nikole Nelson, aka the Black Forager, is also a Columbus resident. She was named a 2022 Game Changer by Food & Wine magazine.

Then there’s Jeni Britton, a James Beard award-winning cookbook author, who launched Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream in Columbus’s 150-year-old public market, North Market, in 2002. Now Jeni’s has six locations throughout Columbus, and has expanded to grocery stores and scoop shops coast-to-coast (including a shop in San Diego’s North Park).

Chapman’s Eat Market in Columbus’s historic German Village was named one of the 50 best restaurants in the country by The New York Times in 2021 shortly

after it opened. It’s led by chef BJ Lieberman, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), who previously helped open Husk in Charleston and served as head chef at Rose’s Luxury and Little Pearl in Washington, DC, both of which were awarded Michelin Stars.

Lieberman moved to Columbus, from whence his wife Bronwyn Haines hails, and opened Chapman’s Eat Market, two weeks before the start of the pandemic, pivoting with takeout only at that time. Last year he was nominated as a James Beard award semifinalist for the Great Lakes region. (Yes, Columbus is folded into that region). He has since added Ginger Rabbit Jazz Lounge and Hiraeth, a live-fire restaurant that opened last August in the Short North Arts District. “We have a 10-foot hearth on a brick deck with apparatus all over it,” Lieberman explained in a phone interview. “It’s got grills, yakitories, and smoke boxes. We build two huge fires each day and then move the embers around, so we can slowly cook things or grill over high heat. It’s a learning experience.”

Lieberman said the pandemic had an unusual upside for Columbus: “It created more retail outlets for individual operators to do their dream projects. And then suddenly everything has come

into view as a mosaic.”

He finds the local restaurant community both competitive and collaborative. “Competition is good because it drives us all to be better,” he said. “But we’re also collaborative. I’m friends with most restaurant operators and chefs. We share information and war stories.”

At the top of his list of compatriots is Cameron Mitchell, owner of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, whom Lieberman interviewed when he was a student at the Culinary Institute of America and Mitchell was a board of trustees member.

“I was dating my wife at the time and she told me that Cameron Mitchell was the best thing that ever happened to Columbus,” he said. “Later, one of my best friends at CIA was the son of David Miller, Cameron’s CEO.

“They’ve been so good to us; they’ve shared their vendors and their processes. Cameron once told me, ‘You’re not our competition, you’re in league with us.’ I love that super collaborative attitude.”

Cameron Mitchell Restaurants (CMR) owns 22, soon to be 25, restaurants in Columbus and dozens more nationwide, including the Ocean Prime restaurants brand (the nearest to Coronado are in

Beverly Hills and Las Vegas). He has also spearheaded fundraising to further culinary training at Columbus State Community College, a school that helped change the trajectory of his life some forty years ago.

I visited three CMR establishments in the Columbus area, as well as the Beverly Hills Ocean Prime, and was delighted with the culinary offerings, and even more, by the professional and friendly service at each venue.

But what most struck me was Mitchell’s personal story – a rough-and-tumble road to riches, which he shared in his 2018 memoir, Yes is the Answer. What is the Question? Subhead: How Faith In People and a Culture of Hospitality Built A Modern American Restaurant Company.

Mitchell grew up in Columbus and at age nine his parents divorced and his father left. His two older brothers also left home about the same time, going away to college, both eventually becoming medical doctors. Mitchell was left mostly to fend for himself, living with a mother whom he and his brothers suspect suffered from bipolar disease or depression.

By seventh grade, young Cameron had fallen in with the wrong crowd, and began smoking and drinking. By eighth

grade, he added marijuana, by ninth, he was popping pills and dealing drugs. During his sophomore year, his mother told him she had made an appointment for him to meet with a representative of child protective services. Fearing he’d be placed in a group home, Cameron promptly ran away. Although he had moved in with a group of other ne’er-do-wells less than two miles away, he took a bus to Cincinnati and from there mailed a postcard to his mother to say he was okay and to throw her off his track. For the next several months, Cameron dined on Kraft macaroni “made with water, I had no money for milk and butter,” he shared. He occasionally found an odd job but also joined his roommates in petty theft. “I knew it was all contrary to my inherent good nature,” he admitted, adding that by June on his 16th birthday he was ready to end it with a bottle of Quaaludes. Fortunately, a friend intervened. The day before his junior year was to begin, Cameron felt a force pull him toward a telephone to call his mother to ask if he could return home. The answer was a swift, relieved and heartfelt yes. With no possessions except the torn t-shirt and jeans he wore, Cameron returned home and reconciled with

his mother. Yet he realized that he was largely on his own and so began working part-time as a dishwasher at Cork ‘n Cleaver restaurant earning $2.65 an hour.

Mitchell’s future entrepreurism came into focus when he decided to run for senior class president. In a well-received speech to the student body, he promised, if elected, to arrange a spring break trip to Florida for the class. He won handily and came through with the trip, renting two RVs, and enlisting two co-workers to be chaperones, (i.e., they were 21 and could buy the group beer). Fifteen kids each piled into the RVs and the budding entrepreneur charged each student enough to make a handy profit on the jaunt. To this day, Mitchell cannot believe that parents of 30 students approved this trip.

Despite being class president, Cameron wasn’t able to walk with his class, but was able to make up the English class that held him back that summer.

And so, fall came and his fellow classmates were off to college and careers but Mitchell remained at home, now working as a fry cook at Max & Erma’s where he earned $4.50 an hour. By December he was on probation, and when he came in late yet again, he fully expected to be

In 1993 Mitchell signed a lease for a small storefront property tucked into a corner of northwest Columbus. “Cameron’s,” Mitchell’s first American bistro, became an immediate hit. Cameron Mitchell, Senior Class President

fired. But the restaurant was busy and his boss overlooked the transgression, telling him to “Get out there!”

That night, Mitchell worked a double shift. “The dining room was filling up, the bar was vibrating and there was a frenetic energy,” he wrote. “Suddenly, I froze for 30 seconds and with clarity I could see my path. I absolutely loved this business,” he recalled, and he knew it was what he wanted for his life’s career.

Back home that night, he feverishly wrote out goals: Go to the Culinary Institute of America; become an executive chef by age 23; a general manager by 24; a regional manager by 26 and president of a restaurant group by 35.

The next day, instead of being the laziest guy at Max & Erma’s, he became the hardest working guy in the kitchen. “For the first time I had goals in my life,” he said.

He applied to the CIA, but was turned down initially because of his 1.05 high school GPA, but he was advised that if he took a math and English class at a community college and did well, he could reapply. So Mitchell signed up for the classes at Columbus State Community College and came away with A’s in both. Two years later, he graduated from the CIA and returned to Columbus to begin his restaurant career, beginning as a sous chef at 55 Restaurant Group, where he rose to general manager, beating his own goal. Six years later, he left to open his own restaurant business.

His growth was exponential, and he attributes it to his company’s six pillars and eight core values. One pillar answers the question of “Why are we in business?” with “To continue to thrive, driven by our cultural and fiscal responsibilities. Our decisions will be based 51 percent on culture and 49 percent on profit. We will never put profit on higher ground than our culture.” At the top of his company core values is placing associates (employees) first.

At their initial training session, each

new hire is given a little red book containing the company’s pillars and values. They are also handed a chocolate milkshake that harkens back to the time when Mitchell once unsuccessfully tried to order a milkshake for his young son at a restaurant. The server’s firm “no” answer eventually led to his “Yes is the Answer” book title.

In his memoir, Mitchell shares the ups and downs of building his restaurant empire, beginning with the 1993 opening of Cameron’s American Bistro. There were notable highs, including a $92 million sale in 2008 of three Cameron Mitchell Steakhouses and 19 Mitchell’s Fish Market restaurants to Ruth’s Chris Steak House. But a subsequent overexpansion consumed all that profit and almost sunk his entire fleet. Mitchell pulls no punches, faulting his own hubris at the core of that near debacle.

Mitchell is now focused on giving back to his industry, providing strategic direction for his company, and enjoying life and travel with his wife Molly, their three children and assorted grandchildren.

He completed a two-year term as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the CIA, the first alumnus to do so, and actively recruits and mentors current and prospective students. He is one of the school’s largest alumni donors, having established a $500,000 scholarship fund.

Turning his attention back to Columbus where his company is still headquartered and remembering the two courses he took at Columbus State Community College that paved his way to the CIA, Mitchell chaired the capital campaign, led by his own $3.5 million donation, towards the school’s newly opened $40 million, state-of-the-art Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts School. Named in his honor, Mitchell Hall features 11 teaching kitchens and labs, a full-service restaurant for students to practice their culinary skills, a bakery and culinary theater. Mitchell Hall doubled the school’s enrollment capacity to 1,500 culinary students, allowing even more budding chefs and restaurateurs to pursue their dreams.

Budd Dairy Food Hall

Another example of Cameron Mitchell Restaurant’s commitment to fostering budding culinary talent came in 2018 when the company began an adaptive reuse of an aptly named former dairy building, the Budd Dairy Building.

The Budd Dairy Food Hall, located in Columbus’s Italian district, is a chefdriven incubator that provides opportunities for culinary adventurers to refine their concept, grow their business and build a loyal following, all while sharing space with other like-minded entrepreneurs. Fodor’s praised Budd Dairy Food Hall as being one of the best new food halls in the country in 2021, its opening year.

The food hall features 10 kitchens, including its “Hatch” kitchen that serves as a rotating incubator site for popup meals, three bars including a large central bar on the main floor, indoor dining, outdoor patios and a rooftop deck. Current chefs won their spots at the food hall by auditioning with CMR, and offer innovative fare ranging from Filipino street food, Hawaiian-inspired poke, scratch-made Southern specialties, Oaxacan-style tacos and Cluck Norris’ Ass-Kickin’ Chicken.

The building once housed Columbus’s largest operating dairy. It all started in 1894 when Simon T. Budd started a delivery milk service from his family farm in Miffinville (an area now in Northeast Columbus).

On Dec. 7, 1916, Simon’s son, William, opened the Budd Dairy Building and Plant, advertised as “America’s finest milk bottling plant” at the time. The second floor was named “Budd’s Assembly Hall for clubs, luncheons and private parties.” The plant also sponsored some of the first radio dance events in Columbus with local radio station KDKA.

In 1923, Budd Dairy advertised a new product in the KKK-owned newspaper, The Fiery Cross. The dairy was boycotted by the African American commu-

nity and quickly joined by the Catholic and Jewish communities. The boycott caused a huge drop in orders, and the following year the Hamilton Milk Company bought the financially weakened company. The boycott is thought to be one of the earliest successful racially based economic boycotts in the United States. With new ownership in place and with Columbus growing, Budd Dairy

was now serving 11,000 customers a day with 421 horse-drawn wagons, electric wagons and gas trucks. In 1934 Borden Dairy Company bought the dairy and operated it for another 33 years. The last milk shipment was in 1967 and the building remained dormant for decades. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2017.
