Publisher’s Prattle So….the holidays are behind us and we are settled into life as we know it postholiday frenzy. This season of cold weather, gray days, and early dark makes me want to cuddle up on the sofa and watch a “feel good” movie. If you haven’t seen “Pay It Forward” with Kevin Spacey and Helen Hunt, it’s one to put on your “must see” list. This movie will get you in the mood to DO GOOD, BE KIND, and MAKE A DIFFERENCE, no matter how small. With that in mind, this issue of FLAIR is focused on LOVE. Love surrounds us in many forms – all we have to do is pay attention. This issue will remind you of all the ways LOVE touches each of us every day. — Belinda Saltzman

A Pe e k Into Pa u l a’s Kitchen

Paula Edwards is a country girl at heart. She loves animals and always wanted to have outdoor space for a horse or two. Six years ago, she and her husband Stan bought 12 acres on Drakes Creek in Alvaton, a beautiful country setting but close to city amenities. After thoughtful planning and tweaking of floor plans, construction began in 2010 on the Edwards’ home. Paula wanted the style and interior design of their home to fit the rustic setting of the property. In November 2011, they moved into their new home which is hidden from the road by rolling pasture land and situated on the bank of Drakes Creek. A breathtaking view through the trees provides a perfect glimpse of the creek below. Paula’s kitchen is the centerpiece of the house. She wanted the kitchen to be open and a gathering place. The end result is spectacular! The Edwards’ kitchen is inviting, spacious, and comfortable. The large center island with black/ brown granite countertop provides plenty of space for hanging out. Just opposite the center island is the Keeping Room, a cozy room with fireplace, sofa, easy chair, and TV, for lounging in comfort and yet allows proximity for interaction with the cook! The custom cabinetry reflects the hues of the outdoors. The upper cabinets are a glazed sage green distressed wood and the lower cabinets a rich walnut distressed wood. A natural stone archway frames the commercial grade gas stove and oven accented with a small patterned tile backsplash. Built-in spice racks flank the stove. Cooking for a crowd will be no problem for the Edwards. In addition to the commercial stove/oven, the kitchen is also equipped with a built-in oven, microwave, and warming drawer combo. The refrigerator is encased in the same natural stone archway design with built-in shelving and cabinets for display and storage. A convenient butler’s pantry/bar area complements a corner of the kitchen with glass front cabinet doors, a bar fridge, and small bar sink. The eat-in area of the kitchen is light and sunny with a view of the wooded creek and step out access to an expansive deck for outdoor entertaining.

Paula’s wish for plenty of outdoor space for animals was fulfilled with their new home. Cows, horses, donkeys, and three Labrador Retrievers (yellow, white and black) are happy to roam the acreage, and the dogs have a perfect swimming hole in Drake’s Creek!

To give rooms architectural detail when they don’t have any, paint a 11⁄2” to 2” lining stripe around the ceiling and up the walls in the corners. It’s a rich touch, a way to get a lot of look with just paint.


Don’t hang a mirror between windows. The spatial void it creates distracts from the view. And don’t fall prey to using mirrors in every room or over every mantel. Mirrors are not art, and a room needs art.





Stop at 6 pillows on a bed. You need 2 soft extra-long pillows, 2 European squares, and, if you want, you can do 2 more European squares. But those Pekingese-size small pillows all over the bed are vulgar. And you have so much to throw on the floor when you get into bed. — DAVID NETTO

I want to get married again - I think it would be so romantic! Do you think it’s a good idea? ---Dolly Do-over

Dear Dolly: Here’s my take on the recommitment ceremony — it’s a huge waste of money for something you already have. This foolishness has been perpetuated by the bridal industry, and all that goes with it. Much better to take a swanky vacation!

Dear Rosie, What do I think a man would want...hmmmm. I’m pretty sure from my vast experience that it’s NOT a book of poetry! Plan something involving beer and baby oil, and you’ll be good! Want to ask Sheila a question? Write her at Shout Out To Sheila at P. O. Box 492, Bowling Green, KY 42102.

The 411 on Wine brought to You by Shenanigans Wine & Spirits

The Mood is Yours. Welcome to the World of BE. By Casandra Spears Women are moody. Let’s face the truth, ladies - we are naturally and without a doubt the most moody creatures on Earth. We can go from Happy-Go-Lucky to Miss Cranky Pants in two seconds flat. We have a tendency to know exactly what we want, when we want it, and most of us will take whatever it is at that exact moment. Just imagine walking through the wine aisle and you come across a wine that speaks to your moody dilemma of the day. A wine that will make you feel better about something or make you want to dance to your own music. Then, tomorrow, you can choose a different one to match your mood for that day, too. Well, there is good news for all us moody women - there is a wine for just that! Be. Wines speak to every woman’s mood with their line of different varietals matched with creative words so you can choose to drink your mood for the day and make you feel even better than you did before. The wines are: Be. Fresh Chardonnay Be. Bright Pinot Grigio Be. Radiant Riesling Be. Flirty Pink Moscato Be. Peachy White Peach Bellini Be. Tempting Red Blend Be. Sultry Sangria So, the next time you are feeling blue, grab a Peachy White Peach Bellini, or, when you’re feeling sexy, grab the Sultry Sangria. You might even want to tell your best friend how special she is with the Radiant Riesling. The possibilities are endless!

Be. Fresh Chardonnay - Each sip starts with a politely pleasant murmur that unfolds into an invigorating, crisp green apple splash that awakens your senses and revives your spirit. This fortuitous flavor is perfectly complemented by hints of citrus reminding you of the delicious magic of a budding romance, new adventure or simple twist of fate.

Be. Bright Pinot Grigio - Snagging the spotlight is simply effortless with this Pinot Grigio that breezes in with its sun-ripened fruit flavors, shines with carefree cues of the tropics, and finishes with an exquisite ending that welcomes you to your place in the sun.

Be. Radiant Riesling - The tempo is set for excitement with tantalizing fruit that boasts a marvelously magnetic appeal. Once your palate is captured by this zest for life, it is complemented by bright floral notes and whispers of sweetness that linger like that perfect evening that still floods your daydreams with sly smiles. Be. Flirty Pink Moscato - This tastefully gregarious gem is decked out and ready to get noticed with its playfully pink color. Its sweet berry flavors allure your palate with a friendly approach that mesmerizes as delicate notes dance to the playlist of fun rotating ’round a shiny disco ball in your head.

Be. Peachy White Peach Bellini - This sweet and sunny White Peach Bellini is comprised of a blend of Chenin Blanc and Muscat with a splash of natural peach flavor to make this blend extra peachy. Serve chilled, and feel free to add a slice of peach to be extra peachy keen. Be. Tempting Red Blend - This bold blend is as rich, seductive and sinfully delicious as a bite of red velvet-with lush berry flavors, hints of chocolate and spice, and a smooth come hither finish. Serve at room temperature, or chilled for a little shiver of something different.

Be. Sultry Sangria - This scintillating Sangria offers up a sip of paradise, with bright berry and juicy fruit flavors and a refreshing finish. Perfect for setting a sensuous mood. Serve chilled, alone or garnished with fresh berries for a seductive treat.

s l e e H Hill on the

By Mary Anne Andrews

The month of March is deemed Sexual Assault Awareness Month. During the month, groups encourage members of the community to rally in support of the staggering one-in-three women affected by the tragedy of sexual assault. This March, the Inter-fraternity Council of WKU will hold its third annual “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” event to raise money for the local Hope Harbor organization. The International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault, and Gender Violence was created in 2001 and has been spreading across North America ever since. The walk will take place on March 26, 2013. The council invites male walkers from the campus and community to join them by slipping into something uncomfortable for a cause. A $25 registration fee covers a t-shirt, a donation, and, most important, a pair of red pumps. Last year, about 50 men participated in the one-mile walk around WKU’s campus while wearing red high heels. “We recently brought it to campus, and it’s been a growing event. It sends a wonderful message,” said Alissa Mansfield, Greek Affairs Coordinator. Alissa organizes the event and is hoping for a great deal of growth this year. Last year’s walk raised $1,000 for Hope Harbor This year’s walk will take place on and received national news coverage from CNN March 26, 2013 and the Huffington Post. It will be a sight to see over 100 hairy This year, Alissa hopes for an increase in legs doing their best trudging up “The community involvement, especially among Hill” in five-inch heels. Don’t miss it! volunteers. Those who don’t want to walk can simply give a donation, buy a t-shirt, or stand along the path and cheer for the walkers as they come past. “We want people to get involved, supporters in t-shirts cheering them along,” Alissa said. “We are doing much more collaboration this year with other groups on campus. We hope we’re raising awareness.” Registration for the walk will be available online in February, 2013, at www.wku.edu/wkugreeks. Alissa said she believes the event is good for the campus community, also. “Many men aren’t encouraged to get involved in taking a stance on gender violence,” she said. This is a way for them to be educated, discouraged from participating in the problem, and help a cause. Women on campus are encouraged by the event, too. “It shows them that the male community on campus is aware and being educated and that women can be supported by many of the males on campus,” she said. It will be a sight to see over 100 hairy legs doing their best trudging up “The Hill” in five-inch heels. Make sure you don’t miss it! 14 • Flair • 2013 • January/February/March

Puppy Love By Mary Anne Andrews

When Lorri Hare began working with the Bowling Green-Warren County Humane Society 14 years ago, she never dreamed one day she would become its Director. At the time, the shelter did not have a volunteer program, so she began encouraging volunteerism with a 5K walk fundraiser that raised $3,000. Last year, that same 5K walk raised $30,000. Under Lorri’s leadership and with the help of a loyal staff, the shelter’s adoption rate has increased 70%. “We won’t stop until we can adopt out every healthy pet,” she said. The shelter sees several kinds of pet owners. “We see the part of the community who treats animals like part of the family . . . and the part who doesn’t,” Lorri said, “but the great homes far outweigh the bad ones.” The best way to combat bad homes is through awareness and responsibility-particularly the spaying or neutering of pets. The shelter offers a low cost spay and neuter program that is open to the public year round. When it comes to pet adoption, Lorri says that the shelter is the best option. “When you purchase a dog from a store or a breeder, you may be contributing to puppy mills or other bad conditions,” she said. At the shelter, an $85 pet fee covers your new pet’s spay or neuter cost, vaccinations, and microchipping. This is over $280 worth of veterinary services. Also, the shelter employees know their animals and help families choose the pet that best fits into their lifestyle. Pets are especially important in homes with children. “We all remember our childhood dog that was our favorite pet,” Lorri said. “Children have a bond with animals that they don’t have with humans. That animal will love them regardless. It teaches them responsibility, also.” With over 10,000 animal intakes in 2012, there are always plenty of options. The shelter usually has about 200 animals who need homes at any given time. Surprisingly, about 25% are purebred. The best way to adopt a pet is to take your time and get to know different animals.

Lorri Hare, Director of the Bowling Green-Warren County Humane Society

“The animal picks us as much as we pick it,” Lorri said. “If you don’t see what you want the first time, check back. Adoption forms are available online, and some pets are ready to take home the same day.” Nothing makes a better Valentine than the gift of saving a life. When you adopt an animal from the Humane Society, you are really saving two lives: the one you adopt and the one for which you create a space. The shelter has an open volunteer program with applications available online, too. Volunteers help walk and socialize pets to prepare them for future homes. “On my tombstone, I want it to say I made a difference,” Lorri concluded. “I hope I can fulfill that epitaph.” 16 • Flair • 2013 • January/February/March

Sir-PR IZE... Joh n n y B ritt Local Basketball Celebrity BG is blessed with local celebrities from all walks of life. Johnny Britt is one of our celebrities! Johnny is a graduate of Warren East High School where he was a stand-out basketball player. He was awarded a basketball scholarship to Western Kentucky University and played for the Hilltoppers 1972-1976 as a “small” forward and his senior year, a point guard. The 1976 basketball season was great for the WKU basketball team and its fans. The rivalry and competition of the OVC Conference brought fans to Diddle Arena to “fill the house.” The night of the OVC Championship game between WKU and Austin Peay was filled with electric anticipation. Diddle was filled to capacity and the fans were roaring. The media pregame hype pitted two former Warren East high school team members against each other in this important game. It would be Johnny Britt of WKU v/s Charles Fishback of Austin Peay, high school friends and ferocious competitors. In the final seconds of the game, WKU was up by 1 point. Britt fouled Fishback who went to the foul line. Fishback was successful with both foul shots which put WKU behind by 1 point Britt, #20, in the final minutes of with 8 seconds on the clock. The ball the WKU and Austin Peay game. ended up in the hands of Mike Warner (not the team’s best shooter) who frantically threw the ball in the air from half court trying to make a miracle shot. Wilson James, a WKU forward, grabbed the ball out of the air and laid it into the basket all in the same motion, just as the clock buzzed. WKU won by 1 point! The crowd exploded in pandemonium! It was a night that WKU fans would remember forever! WKU ended up losing to Marquette in the NCAA that year. Marquette progressed to win the NCAA tournament. Now, as Paul Harvey used to say, “the rest of the story.” In the fall of 2010, 35 years after the big game, Johnny Britt got a phone call from the WKU Athletic Department and was informed that the 1976 OVC Championship team, including managers, trainers, and coaches would be recognized at a WKU basketball game and presented with a championship ring. In February 2011, the 1976 team members gathered for a reunion meeting, then went to WKU to meet the current Johnny Britt’s basketball team. At half time, the 1976 OVC Championship 1976 OVC team was introduced and presented a beautiful Championship Ring championship ring on the basketball floor where a memory of 35 years ago was recognized and honored. And that is the rest of the story.

To Dye For

— By Liz Bradley

Who says dyeing Easter eggs is just for kids? This Easter think about asking a few girlfriends to hop on over for an Easter Egg Dyeing party! First on the list of to dos? Find creative ideas for dyeing the eggs. Let your imagination run wild. Your eggs can take on a more sophisticated feel or be a little more difficult since this party doesn’t include supervising the kiddos. Let your style and the look of your home be your guide for your inspiration. Here are a few ideas to help you get the egg rolling... One of my personal favorites is the chalkboard egg. Instead of traditional egg dye, just paint your eggs with chalkboard spray paint. This is also a treat for the family when you get home. They can draw and change the eggs around all season.

Dip dyeing also takes on a clean look of simplicity and style when left to one or two colors mixed with the white egg. Variations of this style are limitless and look designer when put together as a centerpiece.

20 • Flair • 2013 • January/February/March

The speckled blue egg is always a natural choice. This technique is as simple as dyeing the eggs different shades of blue with a little gold paint splattered on the egg. Remember that the darker the dye and the longer the length of time the egg lays in the dye determines how vibrant the egg will be. The eggs look more natural when they are different colors and consistency. Never underestimate the power of a monogram or an initial in the South. There is no one at your party who won’t swoon over these beauties. You can use them on undyed farm fresh eggs or make them fun with a traditionally dyed egg. The vinyl letters can be found in craft stores or on-line and for very reasonable prices so not to break your basket! No Easter party could be complete without the golden egg! The options of the golden egg are endless. You can use gold spray paint, gold leaf paper, and of course, gold glitter. After all, in order to really call yourself a crafter, there must be a little glitter involved. Easter is just a hop, skip and a jump away, and with no shortage of fun and clever Easter ideas out there, now is the time to start planning your party that all your friends will swear was TO-DYE-FOR! Hoppy planning!

Fifty Shades

Fantasy of

Well . . . the Top Three, Anyway!

The summer of 2012 might well have gone down as one of the hottest on record, but not only because of the soaring temperatures outside. Millions of readers worldwide (mostly women) fell under the spell of a trio of erotic books written by novice British novelist E.L. James — Fifty Shades of Grey and its two sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. Notable for their explicit erotic scenes depicting such sexual practices as bondage and disciple, dominance and submission, and sadism and masochism (BDSM), the series has topped bestseller lists around the world, including the United Kingdom and the United States; has sold 40 million copies worldwide with book rights having been sold in 37 countries; and has set the record as the fastest-selling paperback of all time, surpasssing even the Harry Potter series. What does the phenomenon of this bestselling series and its avid readership tell us about women and their sexual fantasies? According to Dr. Hilda Hutcherson, author of Pleasure: A Woman’s Guide to Getting the Sex You Want, Need, and Deserve, “Patients often ask me if sexual daydreams are normal. They are!” Dr. Hutcherson has identified the top three sexual fantasies for women and interpreted what they mean. They include the following: 1. Sex with another man, usually a celebrity. This doesn’t mean that you’re dissatisfied with your real sex life, just that you’re excited by new experiences, and, of course, gorgeous stars. 2. Domination. This fantasy allows you to engage in sexual activity that may seem taboo without any guilt. Seeing yourself as submissive can signify a desire for a loss of control, and freedom from responsibility can be thrilling. 3. Last but not least: sex with your guy. This is the most common fantasy for women. It’s usually more exciting than your average roll in the hay-perhaps a replay of your hot honeymoon, for example. It simply means that sex with your partner turns you on. What a great concept!

In March, 2012, Universal Pictures and Focus Features secured the film rights to the Fifty Shades trilogy, and, at present, the two top contenders for the coveted role of the mysterious, young business magnate Christian Grey are Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper, pictured here left to right.
