“It was nice to go back to Dr. Deaton and see the same team. The staff at Premier Fertility are amazing!” Lissa Domenech Winston Salem, NC

Great careers, great marriage and there was only one thing missing…a baby.

After many years of trying and disappointment, they knew it was time to seek an expert. Being in the health care field, Lissa knew her options for having a family and she wanted a fertility specialist with proven success rates who could give her and Josep the family they always wanted. In 2005, they were blessed with Sofia and in 2009 their family was completed with Tessa.



More than one in five families struggle with infertility. With more than 20 years of experience, Dr. Jeffrey Deaton is the most experienced Board Certified physician for In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) in the Triad.

Cold Sores On the Eye By Vic Khemsara, MD

Lewis D. Lipscomb, MD, FACOG, FACS

Herpes is a cause of eye infections. Called ocular herpes, this infection can be recurrent and eventually cause permanent damage to the eye, including blindness. The National Eye Institute (NEI) says that about 400,000 Americans have had some form of ocular herpes and close to 50,000 have new or recurring cases each year. This form of herpes is from the chickenpox virus, which can lie dormant in our system for years. There are three main types of ocular herpes: 1. Stromal Keratitis –This infection involves a deep layer of the cornea called the stroma and can lead to scarring and blindness. Although this condition is not common, it is the leading causing of corneal scarring that causes blindness in the US. 2. Herpes keratitis - This affects the corneal epithelium or the top layer of the cornea and usually heals without scarring. This is the most common form of eye infection. In the image to the right you can readily see the dendritic pattern of the herpetic ulcer using a cobalt blue light and fluorescein sodium and benoxinate hydrochloride ophthalmic solution. This is a telltale pattern and gives clear indication to the treating physician of the diagnosis, which in

turn usually allows for a clearly defined treatment plan. Zirgan is the newest medication in the treatment of herpes. It was approved by the FDA in late 2009 as a topical antiviral. This medication has proven to be an improvement over the more traditional treatment. 3. Iridocyclitis – This is an inflammation of the iris and the surrounding tissues. The eye can become sensitive to light and the patient may experience blurred vision, pain and redness. Signs and Symptoms • Swelling in and around eye • Pain secondary to inflammation of the cornea • Blurry vision • Tearing • Redness • Irritation (foreign body sensation) • Sensitivity to light • Recurrent eye infections Iridocyclitis • Eye sores The herpes virus is transmitted with contact with another person having an outbreak or through self contamination during an active infection on your own body, such as a cold sore of the lip. The exact cause of an outbreak is unknown but anything that stresses the body – fever, sunburn, emotional stress – may trigger an incident. Overuse of contact lenses can be a factor in developing an ulcer. Treatment depends on where the infection is located. If it is superficial, it can normally be alleviated by antiviral eye drops or ointment. Occasionally, your eye doctor may treat the infection by scraping away the infected corneal epithelium. If the infection is deeper, steroid drops may help decrease inflammation and prevent corneal scarring. If scarring has occurred on the cornea, it may become necessary to have a penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) or corneal transplant to attempt to restore vision. Other treatments can include long-term oral antiviral medications, such as Famvir or Zovirax. If you experience the symptoms described above, see your primary care physician, an acute care clinic, or your optometrist. Get evaluated at the earliest onset of symptoms, especially if you had chickenpox as a child or have a history of cold sores around your mouth and/or nose. The longer it is left untreated, the more likely it is to have a significant negative impact on your vision.

Every woman wants the best for herself. That’s our mission as well – to provide the very best care, guidance, and treatment during every stage in a woman’s life, from natural family planning to minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. Call us today and experience care that’s as remarkable as you are.

the years. “I think I learned the business through osmosis!” she says. A firm believer that a beautiful room and beautiful surroundings can change a mood and even one’s outlook on life, Colleen finds treasures in a variety of places – locally and all across the United States – and admits she wakes up every morning with the anticipation of what’s out there that day, just waiting to be discovered. Her space currently features beautiful wooden boxes in varying sizes that came from the Poconos and an amazing wooden door – a true masterpiece – from a monastery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.There’s also a beautiful church pew holding straw hats and other tempting trinkets – another example of her love for old wood. As part of her “story” telling Colleen has trademark tags on her merchandise that depict old photographs from the period that matches each piece. She’s focused on creating her own brand, to which she credits much of her success. “You have to mix it up a little,” says Colleen. “There’s always a market for old things, but everyone isn’t searching for something old.” Instead, she offers a little city and a little country, mingling whimsical accents that might spark an interesting conversation, stir an emotion from the past or help someone turn the design of their home in a totally new direction. To Colleen, the possibilities are endless. “You don’t want the house to stay the same all the time,” she says. For her, that means off on another hunt to find a treasure that a lucky client won’t be able to resist! Golden Antiques & Treasures is located at 4537 Hwy 220 North in Summerfield, NC. Hours of operation are Monday – Saturday 10 a.m – 6 p.m. and Sunday 12:00 – 6:00 pm.

Once you’ve met Colleen and had a chance to chat, you realize it’s a true extension of her own positive, vivacious outlook on life.

Much of Colleen’s daytime hours are filled with a slightly different creative venture – her career as a stylist whose client base ranges from well-known national companies to furniture manufacturers and more local advertisers. She’s also in demand for wedding day hair and makeup styling. However, her eye for beauty also spills over into her love of antiques and one-of-a-kind treasures. Her upbeat corner at Golden Antiques & Treasures changes constantly, with a design focus that’s born from the common thread of her current most interesting finds. This week the back wall features a mural of soulful cows that she painted herself – last week it was horses. She calls it her “city girl, country girl” persona which she loves to share with clients. “Constant change is what makes the retail business work,” says Colleen. “Nothing can stay the same and antiques themselves are always about a story.” She began learning this magical form of storytelling from her mother – a high-end antique dealer – who brought the young Colleen along to many, many auctions through

Come in for Color This May!


ost of us wondered when spring would finally show itself. We endured a cold March and some even saw snow in April. Now it is May, one of the most beautiful months of the year. With new life emerging in the trees, shrubs and flowers, May shows itself in gorgeous, vibrant colors. These colors are reflected in the fabulous clothes available at Fraleigh's.

"Lots of color!" said owner Donna Merriman. "Turquoise, fuchsia, lime, sun yellow and the hottest color probably being tangerine. Even though customers come in daily saying ‘I'm not buying anything else black or black and white,’ what do they leave with? You guessed it, black and white. We just suggest adding a touch of color. That will make anything pop, even black and white. We have beautiful scarves in an array of pretty solid colors or different prints. If it is a jacket or just a top, there is something unique and different about each and every item." May is also that special time to honor mothers. It can sometimes be very difficult to find the perfect gift to express how much she means to you, but look no further than Fraleigh's. Merriman has an interesting perspective on what items to carry that will appeal to a wide range of ages. Her business partner is also her mom. "In discussing opening a business, Mom thought I needed a partner," said Merriman. "After offering several choices, I said, ‘What about you.’ Thus, Fraleigh's was born. Mom's middle name is Frances and mine is Leigh. That's where Fraleigh's came from. It was what you call a 'no brainer' decision for me. For Mom, it might have been a little more difficult since she had not worked in a very long time."

Many people probably cannot imagine working with a family member, especially one as close to them as a mother. So, how have these two managed it for more than 33 years? "I think we both respect each other enough to make it work," said Merriman. "Even if we are not together picking out something, and it comes in 10 colors, we will choose the same thing eight out of 10 times. You might say we think alike. I am so blessed to work with my mom and best friend." Whether you are looking for clothes, jewelry or accessories, Fraleigh's has just the right gift. "Our Brighton collection is always a big hit for Mother's Day, whether it's a charm added to a bracelet that says ‘Mom’ or a special necklace or earrings," said Merriman. "We also have the exclusive fragrance by Frank Lyman that is not found anywhere except selected boutiques. We have the best selection of jewelry and accessories ever. We often say that if we can't accessorize it, they don't make it. We also carry shoes, as well as handbags and gifts. So, if you're looking for that special gift for a person that has everything, give Fraleigh's a try. For clothing from blue jeans to formals and sizes from two to 20, make your way to Fraleigh's. "We are a unique store specializing in personal service," said Merriman. "Whether your wants are an accessory for what you already own or a complete outfit, we are here to help. Our greatest pleasure is when our customers return wanting another outfit that will give them as many compliments as their last." Fraleigh's is located at 2626 Lewisville-Clemmons Road in Clemmons. Store hours are M-F 10a-5pm and Sat. 10am-4pm. For more information, call 336-766-7440 or visit the web site at

y hair and I have a hate-hate relationship. We always have. I’ve endured straight, baby-fine strings for as long as I've been, well…me. You can see right through the flat mess, no kidding! Why can't I have hair like my friends? Why do I have to be the one with twigs? Comparisons…they penetrate our perspective even before we identify their presence. These sneaky predators have a way of escalating frustration and igniting insecurities at lightening speed. To make matters worse, technology advances the cause. Don't believe me? It's the end of a horrible, no-good, bad day. Your co-worker got the promotion you were sure was yours. The teacher called to express her "concern" with your son's progress. The car repairs are astronomical which means the family’s vacation plans just bit the dust. You still haven’t been to the grocery store so it’s pizza for dinner AGAIN! (Just what these ever-expanding thighs need, but who cares? You won’t need a swimsuit anyway!) Did I mention your in-laws are coming for the weekend and your house looks like a cyclone on steroids? Just before you collapse into bed, you check out Facebook. It reads something like this…Friend #1: “Celebrating our children’s academic achievements with a trip to Disney World! Pictures to follow!” Friend #2: “Tried a new homemade recipe for dinner. The fam loved it!” Friend #3: “My husband surprised me with a clean house and now he’s putting the kids to bed. I don’t deserve him!” Let’s not forget friend #4: “Just five more pounds to reach my BC (before children) weight! Feeling great!” ENOUGH! These pretty people with their seemingly perfect lives can thrust us over the edge, headlong right into our own pathetic pity party. Discontentment sets in. Depressive thoughts harass us as we try to sleep. Girls, why do we do this to ourselves? These comparisons are so distorted! We compare our reality with the perception of someone else’s perfection. We contrast our routine with a friend’s special day. We judge our worst to their best. The grass is not greener on the other side! It’s an illusion! I meet so many people with what I call, “Destination Disease.” They truly believe they will experience happiness when . . . they find the right person, land that particular job, achieve a certain income, reach their target weight. They eventually accomplish the goal only to discover it didn’t produce the anticipated outcome. For you see, if you’re not happy where you are with you, then you won’t be happy anywhere else with you. It’s true! The heart of the matter is not what you have or where you are. It’s not about replicating someone else’s perceived happiness. The central component that brings contentment comes in knowing WHO you are because of WHOSE you are.

Someone who knew what it was like to live with life’s luxuries and also live without them continues to teach me. He said, “Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am” (Philippians 4:13). When we know who we are and whose we are, security finds a home in us. We find contentment in living our own story. In fact, it becomes an adventure! What would happen if we chose to live in the moment of our own story rather than settling for a cheap imitation of someone else’s? What if we decided to embrace this life we’ve been given and the God who gave it? It’s time to halt the comparison wars, surrender our insecurities, and recall our truest identity found in the One who loves us right where we are.


For comments or prayer, contact Dr. Lanier at


When we lean into the One who knows us inside and out, our identity becomes secure. Who we are offers meaning to what we do. Without this connection, what we do and what we have ultimately call the shots in defining who we are. Hear me! This is a trap! Unavoidably, things come and go. Seasons of life change. When our sense of self is fastened to such an unstable foundation, it shifts like the wind. Disillusionment eventually finds us every time.

Mother’s Day is May 12th! Let us help you find the best gift for the best mom ever! Accessorize This!

Maxi Skirts

Submitted by Mainstream Boutique Want to grow your wardrobe without breaking the bank? Start a collection of maxi skirts and be amazed at the many ways you can wear them. The maxi skirt is a long skirt that extends just below the ankles when worn around the waist. However, there are many ways to wear this skirt, which makes it a great article of clothing for all ages and all sizes. If you feel too short or “vertically challenged” to wear a maxi, you can tie a small knot at the bottom on the right or left side. This shortens it just a bit and also helps to make it feel cooler in the spring and summer. Additionally, you can easily roll it down at the waist or hem it to the perfect length and not compromise any comfort. But length is just the beginning. Here are some other creative ways we have found to show off your maxi skirt: • Wear it as a skirt with a camisole and cardigan or with your favorite t-shirt…very playful! • Wear it as a beach cover-up…very easy and comfortable! • Pull it up to wear as a dress…very creative and easy! • Take the last idea a step further and pin it to your bra and add a cardigan…very discrete and no one knows! The maxi skirt looks great with solid basics and colorful prints. It is a great way to pack lightly for a summer trip and can be worn short to stay cool during a hot summer day or longer during a breezy evening. With the versatility of a maxi skirt, we’re able to say that it’s not just a trend, but here to stay. Stop by Mainstream Boutique where we can show all ages and all sizes how to wear a maxi skirt. We’re located at 110 Oakwood Drive in Winston-Salem, beside Starbucks and across from the Thruway Shopping Center. We carry unique and affordable clothing and accessories to keep your wardrobe up-to-date. Follow us on Facebook to see our newest styles @ Mainstream Boutique Winston Salem, NC.

Understanding Senior Living By Cheri Malek, Director of Community Relations

Vienna Village Assisted Living living communities. Long Term Care Insurance policies can also help with some of the costs.


ur parents, the people we have always looked to for guidance and direction, will reach a point in their lives when they need our advice and assistance. As the years pass, the aging cycle will bring a family full circle, and adult children face the reality that their parents need assistance with day-to-day living. Aging parents need their adult children to help them with decisions at this time.

The question now is “How do we begin?” Unfortunately, the terms related to senior living can be ambiguous or misapplied and many people may feel at a loss when they begin researching options for their loved one. The following list is by no means comprehensive, but may offer an introduction into the realm of senior care. Independent Living (sometimes referred to as Retirement Living): Designed for seniors who require little or no assistance with the activities of daily living, independent living communities provide services for residents such as housekeeping, maintenance and, in some cases, meals, activities and transportation to professional appointments. In this setting, the

36 /

senior adult requires minimal or no personal care assistance. However, residents in independent living may choose to have some home health care or personal care services provided by an outside agency. This would include senior living residences that identify themselves as Independent Living with Assisted Services. Assisted Living: The Assisted Living Federation of America ( defines assisted living as a longterm care option that combines housing, support services and health care, as needed. Assisted living is designed for individuals who require assistance with everyday activities such as meals, medication management and/or assistance with bathing, dressing and transportation. Some residents may have memory disorders, including Alzheimer's, or they may need help with mobility, incontinence or other challenges. Residents are assessed upon move-in, or any time there is a change in condition, to develop an Individualized Service Plan. Medicare does not cover assisted living, but low-income residents may qualify for special assistance from Medicaid in certain assisted

When looking into assisted living options, asking a lot of questions is always a great idea, but, often, it is difficult to know the “right” questions to ask. Calling and only “checking prices” will not give you the best comparison because payment options, level of care charges, quality of care, environment, staffing levels and tenure all factor into the price, and will vary greatly among different communities. In the state of North Carolina, licensed Assisted Living Facilities are regulated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services Division of Health Service Regulation. Their website,, provides valuable information, including a comparison of communities based upon DHSR's on-site visits. Of course, state ratings only provide a small portion of the information, and can’t replace a personal visit to the community. Skilled Nursing Facility or Nursing Home: AARP explains that nursing homes are for “short-term, rehabilitative care and longterm care for chronic conditions.” They are staffed to provide for daily medical needs and “can accommodate patients who spend most or all of their time in a bed.” ( ships/caregiving/) Short-term rehab stays in skilled nursing usually follow a hospital stay resulting from an injury or serious illness. In skilled

nursing rehab, patients may receive skilled medical treatment and/or physical, occupational, or speech therapy, and Medicare guidelines govern the coverage for these services. For more information on what part of skilled nursing rehabilitation is paid for by Medicare, see Long term care in a skilled nursing facility is not covered by Medicare but, again, Long Term Care Insurance policies may help with some of the costs. Residents who have depleted their assets may qualify for Medicaid in Skilled Nursing. It is wise to educate yourself before an emergency strikes. Often, seniors are doing fine living alone but experience a fall or sudden illness which require immediate placement. You will be glad you did your research before a crisis situation. Discuss your findings with your parents and fully understand their desires for their care. Early discussions help develop a positive mindset and allow a period of comfortable adjustment. However, many seniors will want to stay in their homes even beyond a reasonable point. Many homes are not handicap accessible and are not safe for bathing or the use of walkers or other medical equipment. Often, seniors living alone have trouble eating healthy, regular meals, taking scheduled medicines, and keeping clean. It is best to recognize signs of change sooner rather than later, and seek guidance from qualified professionals as soon as those changes occur.

Rollover IRA – Understanding Your Options When you leave your current job, whether you retire or simply change jobs, the decisions can be complicated, especially when it comes to your employer retirement plan assets. Understanding your options is key to making the best decisions for your financial future.

What are the advantages of an IRA rollover? When comparing an IRA rollover to other retirement plan options, an IRA offers several advantages: - Control – You retain control of how your money is invested and diversify your holdings as you see fit. You can choose when and where to invest your money. - Choices – With an IRA, you can invest your retirement dollars in any combination of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, money market accounts, or fixed or variable annuities.

Sanders Smith

- Consolidation – If you have multiple retirement plans or change jobs frequently, it might make sense to consolidate your retirement dollars into an IRA so you’ll have less paperwork and recordkeeping hassles. - Simplicity – Creating a direct rollover is easy. There’s just a little transfer paperwork to complete. Your representative can take care of the rest. - Continued Tax-Deferral – By keeping your assets in a retirement account, you will continue to enjoy the benefit of deferring income taxes on your retirement assets until you are ready to make withdrawals. Other Considerations- For an IRA Rollover to be considered a “Direct” rollover, it must go directly from one institution to another. If you receive the funds, they may be subject to tax penalties and a 20% federal income tax withholding. If you are leaving your job between the ages of 55 and 59 ½, your qualified plan may allow distributions without the early retirement tax penalty. Talk to your plan administrator. Also, be aware that the new IRA may include expenses and sales charges, make sure to factor these into your decision.

What’s the next step? A direct IRA rollover can help simplify the complexities of moving into the next phase of your career. It can also help protect your hard-earned retirement assets from untimely taxation as you build on what you have accomplished so far.

You Dream It, We Design It!

Conversations Today or Crisis Tomorrow – Which Track Will You Choose? By Ann Gauthreaux plan of care, may not get passed on to the right person with the right message. Can you imagine a worse time to face the challenges or confusion outlined in this realistic scenario? Does it sound like the pathway you would choose during a crisis? As women, we are often put in the tough position of making hard healthcare choices and on-the-spot decisions for our loved ones. Without having discussed or planned for these circumstances, we are often left to guess – leaving us feeling helpless, vulnerable, guilty, and unsure of what to do. This doesn’t have to happen!

Ann Gauthreaux is the Director of Public Relations for Hospice & Palliative CareCenter. Hospice has been nationally recognized as a pacesetter program providing education and community engagement related to advance care planning and end of life care. The May 24 conference is free and open to the public.

Picture a very different train ride. You know your destination before you even arrive at the station. Furthermore, the conductor has your ‘ticket’ and knows where you are headed and what stops you will need to make along the way. Which trip would you choose? Like preparing for a vacation or special event, proper planning can make all the difference. So ask yourself: do you know how you or your loved ones would answer these questions: -Who knows your healthcare wishes? -Who will be with you when it is time to make healthcare decisions? -Have you chosen someone to be your


tepping into a modern day emergency center is like stepping onto a moving train. You leave your family doctor behind at the station, make many stops along the way, move through the emergency department, perhaps even to the ICU or some other unknown department, then on to rehab or a variety of other specialists. That’s a long trip with many overwhelming stops before you’re hopefully, eventually, back home. Along the way, none of those physicians or healthcare providers knows you well. You may or may not be able to speak for yourself. We never know when some unexpected crisis will rob us of that ability. If the conductors change shifts, your ‘ticket,’ otherwise known as your

40 /

companion on the journey – a person you trust to understand what you want and stand up for you if your wishes are being misunderstood, ignored or become part of a dispute? Protect yourself as you travel through today’s healthcare maze by: • Thinking about the kind of care you want • Talking to the right people about your choices • Understanding the choices you’re making • Documenting your wishes • Sharing this important conversation with your family and doctor You, and those you care for, deserve to have the best possible care. Learn how to simplify the journey and make sure that your healthcare wishes are honored. Join us for a free one-day conference to learn from doctors, ministers, and professionals. Participants will learn about the importance of advance care planning. You will learn what questions to ask, when to ask them, and what to do if your doctor or minister is uncomfortable talking to you about these topics. They may be uncomfortable discussing or delivering bad news. Doctors may even be uncomfortable suggesting when it’s time to move beyond care aimed at cure

to care aimed at comfort and quality of life - when cure is no longer an option. As an advocate for hospice and palliative care, it is a passion of mine to encourage people to enlist the support of hospice at end of life. After all, we plan for the birth of a child and so should we plan for our final chapters. As we consider our advance care plans, it is important to include hospice care. For a multitude of reasons, it is wise to make sure that hospice care is there for you as soon as appropriate and that you know which hospice organization you are selecting. If a physician ever says to you, “I’m sorry, there is nothing more we can do,” they are wrong. There is much that can be done. It may not be aimed at curing the incurable, yet that shouldn’t keep you from getting the best possible supportive care by an entire team of professionals ready to serve you and your family. Conference participants will be introduced to the tools you’ll need for this process. Tools include: • “Isn’t It Time We Talk?” discussion guide • Advance Medical Directives: • Living Will (Declaration of a Desire for a Natural Death) • Health Care Power of Attorney – a paper that appoints someone to speak for you when you can’t speak for yourself • MOST Form (Medical Orders for Scope of Treatment) – a doctor’s set of orders that translates your healthcare wishes into a doctor’s prescription While this conference is free, we welcome your donation to help offset the cost of this and other community education initiatives. Advanced registration is required for seating and food purposes. Please call (336) 768-6157 ext. 1622 for additional information and to register.

“Conversations Today or Crisis Tomorrow: Planning Ahead for Life’s Final Chapters” Please join us – Friday, May 24, 2013 Free and open to the community at large Hospice & Palliative Care Center

Learn from physicians, clergy and experts about how to begin these challenging conversations. Who Should Attend? You, your family, your faith and community leaders, and anyone needing to know how to begin conversations about end of life care wishes. Location: Forsyth Medical Center Conference Center For inquiries, call (336) 768-6157 ext. 1622. Complimentary breakfast and lunch.

By Mary V. Hollingsworth team effort”, beamed Prysiazniuk. She continued, “I’d like to give special thanks to my brother, Wesley Kapp for his amazing carpentry work and countless hours spent at the store to make sure we met all our deadlines.”


f you take a stroll down memory lane, you may remember a small store named Hip Chics entering the retail scene in the heart of Clemmons. The year was 2007 and if you blinked you might have missed this cute little shop. Taking up a mere 300 square feet in Allen’s Cove Plaza, Hip Chics was tiny in size, but big in dreams! Year after year, “the little store that could” grew and grew. In an amazing turn of events the opportunity of a lifetime presented itself to owner, Kristina Prysiazniuk in January of this year. As it is often said, "when one door closes, another door opens." This was exactly the case with the shops at Allen's Cove. When Arnold's Bread Store closed for retirement, Kristina realized the potential for expansion. With The

Book Rack on board, and willing to move next door, Hip Chics had the wonderful gift of expanding. This golden opportunity was all the motivation Kristina needed to make her dream a reality. It seemed God had it all planned out…it was time for Hip Chics to bloom. With Hip Chics’ birthday just five weeks away, plans were quickly set in motion. A fantastic celebration on March 23rd would unveil a new space, a new look and a new year of business. Kristina credits her dedicated staff and the help of family and friends in making this project a success. “It was truly a

Hip Chics Boutique is known as the perfect place to find a “unique and personalized gift.” This has never been more true, since now you can enjoy shopping for clothing, shoes and much more. Their new space has allowed Hip Chics to maintain their current merchandise, as well as introduce new items. “Our customers have been requesting that we carry clothing for quite some time. We were thrilled to meet the need for trendy and affordable fashion for ladies of all ages,” said Kristina. If their Grand Re-Opening is any indication, the ladies at Hip Chics have

given their customers just what they asked for and more. Without a parking spot to be found, the energy level was high and the store was buzzing with festivities all day! Kristina makes it clear that without the love and support of the local community, Hip Chics would never be what it is today. “The community was so supportive and excited for us at our Grand Opening and birthday event. It was truly a spectacular day!” Kristina stated. As if these new developments weren’t enough, they have also made shopping as simple as the “click of a mouse.” Whether you are local or many miles away, log on to for a convenient and user friendly shopping option. At the end of the day, the ladies at Hip Chics believe one thing is true….meeting the unique retail needs of our community is a blessing. “It is an honor and joy to serve each person who steps into the store,” remarks store employee, Debbie McCaffrey. Next time you’re in Clemmons, save a few moments to visit this charming store. Hip Chics started out small just six year ago, yet they have truly bloomed.

To Keep You By Dr. Andrea

Updates to CPR Certification Every two years I have to renew my CPR certification. So today was the day! We had a great class. But things have changed since our last class. It seems like there is change every time I turn around in everything! Change can be difficult at times, but the changes in the new CPR classes make so much sense. And they are forever researching procedures to make the process more beneficial, i.e., saving lives with less long term damage. They also want to make it simple to learn so everyone can do this, no matter what your background is. CPR is a technique for both genders, all races, all ages and all social economic levels. Since I am in healthcare, people generally think I should know this stuff, but I challenge you to learn it, too. You know most emergencies don't occur when you are in the comfort of a healthcare setting. What are you going to do if it happens in your house or car? Do you know what to do? Sure, call 911, but it takes time for the emergency personnel to reach you. What are you going to do during those precious minutes it takes for our fine heroes to reach you? Brain damage can occur after four minutes without adequate blood flow. If you do nothing, the results will be poor, barring a miracle. But if you attempt CPR, even though it may not be perfect, you may be able to sustain someone's life until further help arrives. CPR alone does not usually restart the heart, but it keeps the circulation moving to help prevent tissue death until further medical procedures can be performed. It can save a life.


One of the big changes in the CPR process is that, instead of the ABC (airway – breathing - circulation), the focus is now on CAB with circulation leading the procedures. Compressions are initiated immediately, followed by rescue breaths. If an AED (automatic external defibrillator) is available, it should be placed and used as quickly as possible, in conjunction with chest compressions. Another change is the rule of 30 compressions to 2 breaths for single rescuers in children and adults. All these techniques are thoroughly covered by your CPR instructor and they will answer those "what-if" questions. One of the great things about the CPR classes is that you get to practice on mannequins. They are very realistic and offer an invaluable experience. Sometimes chest compressions can break ribs, but it is better than the alternative. However, using the mannequins can help you improve your technique so you will have more confidence in your skills. The hands-on-training really does make a difference. In addition to learning how to treat cardiac arrest, you will also learn other valuable skills for choking and respiratory issues. But like anything else, you need to refresh and practice these skills. Hopefully, you will only need to use these skills on mannequins. So be bold and be confident. Learn CPR – you may just save a life. You won't regret learning this set of skills. Sign up for a class now!

The Personality Factor

A Changing Market Demands a Changing Approach In her 25 years in business, Pam Boyle has seen much of what up and down turns in the market have to offer to buyers and sellers; having seen it all, means that she knows how to adjust her approach to a changing and competitive market, addressing clients’ concerns and needs. “The recent downturn in the market over the past few years took many realtors by surprise. I realized very quickly that my thoughts about marketing real estate would have to totally change. Previously, my marketing was primarily on getting potential buyers to call me about my listings. This approach was very ‘agent’ oriented and effective, but with the changing market, taking my services to the next level was needed and that’s what I did. I now send my listing information to everyone that I can. I even have a board on Pinterest with ‘Pam’s Favorite Homes for Sale in North Carolina.’ By being up to date with technology, I’m more accessible via email, text, online chat, Facebook, Twitter and other applications and tools, in addition to the traditional phone call. This day in time, you have to meet your clients where they are and today most are on the internet,” Pam commented. Beyond having a pulse and knowledge on the local real estate market, Pam knows there are other important aspects to establishing a rapport with a new client, which begins with a hand shake, but by no means ends there…

The Attributes You Need In a Real Estate Agent “There are certain attributes that I believe are part of being a good real estate agent and being able to do your job to the best of your ability for your client. Having a positive attitude and a friendly demeanor goes a long way when dealing with not only clients, but other agents. No one wants to be around someone who is negative all the time


hether you are buying or selling a home or property, finding the right Realtor/broker for you and your needs can be a daunting task and no one knows that better than Pam Boyle, Realtor and broker with Allen Tate Realtors ®. “My focus is helping my clients make sound decisions and guide them through what could possibly be the most expensive and emotionally charged purchase of their lives. Real estate transactions can be complicated and the terminology confusing. I’m an agent who will both know the answers to your questions and take the time to explain them as well,” said Pam. From the first meeting with a client, the key to a successful client-Realtor relationship for Pam hinges on three things: market knowledge, communication and professionalism.

With any relationship, personal or professional, it helps if there is a likeability factor. “When you choose a real estate agent, since you are going to be spending a lot of time with this person, it helps if you like them. That immediate rapport opens up the lines of communication, which is essential when you are buying or selling real estate. First and foremost, the most important line of communication needs to be between me and my client. We have a system set up for our clients to access information 24/7; with emailing and texting, communication is much more open and faster; returning calls in a quick and timely manner makes a big difference when a client has questions, it’s part of being a professional at what you do. Clients like to know that you are working for them, even if it’s just to let them know that you haven’t forgotten about them, to tell them ‘here’s what I’m doing on your behalf,’” stated Pam. Once you begin working with Pam Boyle you soon find out that she was made for her chosen career…

or cold and unresponsive to their concerns,” Pam said. Another important aspect to being a good real estate agent is the ability to not just talk, but to listen and be able to offer clients follow through to address any and all of their concerns. “When it comes to real estate, I listen to my clients and find out what their needs are, not just when it comes to number of bedrooms and bathrooms they want, or the number of parking spaces they need for those in their family, but WHY those things are important to them. Knowing the right questions to ask a client, to really get to know the features they like or dislike in a home or property, is the beginning. After asking these questions, I listen and find out the reasons for their choices and decisions in real estate. Once I know what my client wants and needs, I can make sure that I follow through on their behalf in showing them properties that are what they are looking for,” commented Pam. As with most professions, there are plenty of real estate agents who have great personalities and communication skills, but do they have what it takes to close a deal? Taking Your Property from ‘For Sale’ to ‘SOLD’! Buyers and sellers share one important thing: they both want results. As a seller, once you have a ‘For Sale’ sign in your yard, your agent should be working toward a ‘Sold’ sign and if you see a home you like as a buyer, you look forward to seeing a ‘Sold’ sign for another reason. “Presently in the Triad, we are in a full recovery mode from the down market of a few years ago. Helping my clients achieve their desired outcome as a buyer or seller is where my having solid market knowledge, including an understanding of real estate laws and of contracts, comes in to play. From the beginning, I let my clients know how many houses I have sold in the past 12 months, and my view of the current market, being upfront and honest. That’s the only way to best represent yourself and your client. It is pretty easy to know right off the bat if an agent is knowledgeable, because they will be able to communicate to you how a transaction should work, what can go wrong and what your risk is in the current market. All of these topics, when addressed and explained, should make sense to you,” Pam said. As Pam Boyle looks back over her 25 year career in real estate, and forward to what she will experience in the future, she has an indicator that lets her know that she has done her best with her clients. “I always know I’ve done a good job with my clients when they continue to stay in touch with me even after closing escrow, sharing personal things going on in our lives. Being able to recall unique interests and life occurrences that I’ve learned about each of my clients is just part of what makes my job rewarding. I am always here for my clients, because in my mind, my job never ends and I wouldn’t have it any other way,” commented Pam. Pam Boyle is located at Allen Tate Realtors ®, 147 S. Cherry Street, Suite 100, Winston-Salem, NC. Contact information: Cell number- 336-682-7653 or Follow Pam’s blogs at, on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest.

My Priorities Are Simple…

They Are Yours "Pam was a pleasure to work with. She helped us through every step of the process which can be very stressful. We knew she would be there for us and she made closing day run very smoothly. She went above and beyond. My previous neighborhood wasn't selling very quickly (some houses on the market for 6-12+ months). Pam had our house sold in 11 weeks. It was amazing! Now we are in a home that is perfect for our family. Thank you Pam for knowing your job so well and which would be the perfect neighborhood for our family! We love it!" – Dr. Sam and Kristen Turner


Two Local Ministries = Global Impact By Mary V. Hollingsworth

It takes a whole village… A mission team with ekissa, a local nonprofit ministry that facilitates mission trips to Uganda, East Africa, recently returned from a 10 day trip. While ekissa does “projects” as a part of their ministry, they are most focused on “relationships.” ekissa finds that focusing on relationships produces eternal value. Sarah Hales, Founder/ Director of ekissa says, “While we always strive to alleviate the physical needs of our indigenous friends, ‘projects’ are nameless and faceless. It is the gracious Ugandan people that keep us coming back!” As we’ve shared several stories about this ministry in the past, many readers may be aware that over the last 3 years, ekissa has purchased a 3 acre tract of land, assisted in planting a church, built a village “grass” church, constructed latrines, and last month, completed the construction of a pig farm, or “piggery,” as it is called in Uganda. “Let’s give credit where credit is due,” says Sarah. “God provided the financial resources, and the Ugandans provided the workers. ekissa has merely attempted to be faithful in a specific call to ministry to the people of Bweya Village.” The piggery is intended as a means to provide ongoing sustainability to the church, as well as to the villagers. “There is little money exchanged in the village’s local economy. It’s about trading goods and services because no one has any money!” Sarah explains. As a local ministry, ekissa has been blessed by many individuals and businesses. Neocase of Clemmons and etc. Consignment Shoppe of Winston-Salem have been ongoing supporters of the work of ekissa, and this past month, Fleet Feet of Winston-Salem joined their efforts.

Fleet Feet Gives Back… Fleet Feet owners, Keith and Emily Davis, supplied tennis shoes for an entire orphanage of young boys. When asked, “Why ekissa?” Emily Davis responded, “That’s an easy question! Keith and I have a huge desire to assist with meeting physical needs of others through supplying shoes. In addition to a desire to bless others, we have begun considering growing our family through international adoption.” Donating shoes for orphans, through the ministry of ekissa, was a no brainer!” Many may be unaware, but the Davis family has a ministry through their business called “Mission Feet First.” Their ministry provides for them an organized, systematic method to hold fundraisers, receive individual and corporate donations, and leverage and maximize their giving. Annually, Fleet Feet of Winston-Salem hosts the Mission 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk. This year it will be held August 10. This particular run benefits the ongoing expenses of purchasing shoes at closeout sales, specifically to be used for the ministry of Mission Feet First. Benefits of this run are also shared with The Rescue Mission of Winston-Salem. In preparation for the Mission 5K Run, Fleet Feet fits and supplies the men at The Rescue Mission a pair of new shoes in order that they may all participate. “Fleet Feet has a trailer that was retrofitted by Salem Sports. This trailer is used as a mobile shoe unit that allows us an opportunity to provide shoe fittings, just as if the individual was visiting our store as a full paying customer.” says Emily, who thanks venders such as Super Feet, Balega Socks, Brooks, New Balance, and Nike that help make this ministry possible. In addition to The Rescue Mission, Mission First provides hundreds of shoes to several other ministries: The Challenge Farm, Solus Christus, Project End Homelessness, Samaritan’s Soup Kitchen, 5 groups of Girls on the Run, and many individual family requests. It’s rewarding to see ministries such as ekissa and Mission Feet First pull together to bless people not only locally, but globally. Ministry is about obedience and sacrifice, and it’s clear that Keith and Emily Davis of Fleet Feet in Winston-Salem are off to a good sprint!

TWIN CITY STAGE P R E S E N T S By Meghan E.W. Corbett

Janel Jernigan (Frankie Futrelle Dubberly), Eric Dowdy (Dub Dubberly), and Holly Bostick (in veil, Tina Jo Dubberly)


o close its 78th season with a bang, Twin City Stage is pleased to present Dearly Beloved. A comedy set in the mythical town of Fayro, Texas, this show utilizes southern charm in a way that is sure to keep the audience laughing!

Directed by David Anthony Wright, Dearly Beloved focuses on Frankie Dubberly’s attempt to host an elaborate and sophisticated wedding for her daughter, Tina Jo. One thing after another goes awry, and Frankie finds herself without a bride and groom on the big day. Characterized as a

fast-moving character performance that pokes fun at relationships between sisters, husbands and wives, and mothers and daughters, the writers truly outdid themselves in cramming so much humor into one performance. Dearly Beloved is the result of the hard work of Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten. Sponsors include Wells Fargo, Owen Architecture, PLLC, and Butler and Burke LLP.

Gesh Metz (Honey Raye Futrelle), Janel Jernigan (Frankie Futrelle Dubberly) and Kirby Carespodi (at piano, Twink Futrelle)

Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances are held at 8pm with Sunday performances at 2pm.

Express Yourself… Mix or Match?

ReDESIGNS by Ava “There was a time when mixing metals, whether in home décor or jewelry, was considered a faux pas. While the idea still meets resistance with some, designs that employ a strict rule of not mixing metals often fall flat…..mixing and matching metals is a sure-fire way to bring a layered richness to any space.” ~Killy Scheer Just the other day I was in the grocery store and a lady said to me, “You dress so youthful.” I had on nothing more than gym clothes. Then she proceeded to tell me that she had read somewhere that to look more youthful, you shouldn’t match your purse to your shoes. Remember when the style was to match everything? Not just in fashion, but in the home, too? To be ‘in style’ meant matching the end and coffee tables, a bedroom or dining room suite, sofa and chairs… all had to match! The look may be neat, but it can result in a predictable boring décor. Quite often I am asked the question “Is it okay to mix the metal finishes in my home?” That question usually comes from someone whose house was built in the 80’s and 90’s and all the hardware in their home is polished brass. A can of worms can be opened when you start replacing all the door and cabinet hardware and light fixture finishes….. you can spend a ton of money! My answer is, “Its okay to mix the metals.” Not just because I want to save a ton of money, but by not being so predictable, you can give depth and character to the space.

Keep these thoughts in mind when expressing yourself with the metal finishes for your home: • Give a vintage feel to your home by collecting different finishes (mirrors, picture frames, candle sticks, etc.) over time. • Keep in mind the style and decor of your home and mix that with what you love and it should work. • Match the metals (cabinet hardware, light fixtures, and plumbing fixtures) in a small space, like a bathroom. The metals will be close in proximity and the room will look more balanced with the use of one finish. • Choosing to use different metal finishes in a room will not look mismatched if the metal finish is repeated a few times through out the room. • Mixing metals will keep your décor from being too defined by a trend or time period. • Maintain some consistency: for example….brushed nickel cabinet knobs call for brushed nickel hinges. The kitchen seems to be the one place clients are most concerned about the

metals matching. The metals do not have to match but need to blend. To keep the look cohesive: appliances should match, cabinet hardware should match, and all door knobs and hinges should match. Light fixtures and faucets (even the sink) can match any of these finishes or be an entirely different finish. Gold and brass is a trend making a come back. It’s not the polished brass of the 80’s and 90’s, but a softer, brushed or antique brass. It is a very elegant look, mixes well with other metals and its patina gets better with age. If you still have polished brass, try mixing it with the oil rubbed bronze to soften and update your décor. The choices of metals are endless. Have fun mixing and matching! ‘My youthful look’ is a pair of knit gray crop pants, turquoise shirt and hooded sweat jacket, turquoise and lime green tennis shoes and a hot pink purse. Definitely not boring… but youthful! ReDESIGNS by Ava would love to help you have a beautiful home. Call to schedule an appointment.

Change Today

for a Healthier Future: The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program

By Sara Migliarese

“An estimated 25,200 Forsyth County residents are considered pre-diabetic…”


orsyth County residents are fortunate to have access to a newly launched health program at two of the local YMCAs (Jerry Long Family YMCA in Clemmons and William G. White, Jr. Family YMCA near downtown Winston-Salem). These YMCAs are joining select, proactive YMCAs across the country to offer a diabetes prevention program. An estimated 25,200 Forsyth County residents are considered pre-diabetic and could benefit from the Y’s Diabetes Prevention Program. Almost 31,000 residents have already been diagnosed with Type II diabetes and are joined by over 34,000 residents who are diabetic but are undiagnosed in Forsyth County. With statistics like these, you are bound to know a neighbor, friend, or family member who is at risk for diabetes, or you may be at risk yourself. Demographic characteristics for adults with diagnosed diabetes in North Carolina show the highest prevalence rate in women, African Americans, adults with less than a high school education, adults over 65 years of age, adults with a household income less than $15,000, and adults with disabilities. Several additional health factors put adults at higher risk for diabetes if they are female, have a history of birthing a child that weighs over 9 pounds, have family with diabetes, have increased weight, or are older in age. Additional factors include history of gestational diabetes, blood pressure of 140/90 or higher, abnormal cholesterol with the HDL or “good” cholesterol 35 or lower, triglyceride levels of 250 or higher, and being physically inactive. If these risk factors hit close to home, you might want to ask yourself about the diabetic symptoms listed below. Keep in mind that even if you experience some of the symptoms listed, it takes a blood test to confirm the diagnosis of diabetes. You may be at risk for diabetes if you are experiencing any of the following health issues:

• Frequent urination • Unusual thirst • Extreme hunger • Unusual weight loss • Extreme fatigue and irritability • Frequent infections

• Blurred vision • Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal • Tingling/numbness in the hands/feet • Recurring skin, gum, or bladder infections

The Y's Diabetes Prevention Program provides a supportive environment where participants work together in a small group led by a trained Lifestyle Coach in a classroom setting. The classes promote healthier eating, increased physical activity, and losing a modest amount of weight in order to combat the onset of diabetes. The class is delivered over a 12-month period starting with 16 weekly sessions, followed by monthly maintenance. The Y's Diabetes Prevention Program is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Preventionled National Diabetes Prevention Program and is nationally supported by the Diabetes Prevention and Control Alliance. Programs like these have been shown to reduce the number of cases of Type II diabetes by over 58%! Adults are eligible to participate in Y's Diabetes Prevention Program if they are at least 18 years of age, are overweight (based on a BMI of 24 or higher), or who have been deemed as pre-diabetic because of certain lab values or health screenings. The program is open to both YMCA members and non-members. Adults who are already diagnosed with Type I or Type II diabetes are not eligible for this program. The Y's Program Coordinator can assist you in determining your eligibility for the program and will also be happy to assist you in identifying your risk for this dreaded disease. The coordinator can also discuss the possibility of financial assistance to meet the reasonable class fee associated with the program. A quick phone call or email to the program coordinator may prevent the devastating results of diabetes, a disease that can take your kidney function, your limbs, your eyesight, and eventually your life. For information on the Y’s Diabetes Prevention Program, contact: Lindsey Kimble at (336) 712-2000, The assessment form can be found at

The Ugliest Room Makeover Contest When Being the Worst Looking Really Pays Off By Carolyn S. Peterson


here are very few times in life when being considered the ‘ugliest’ in any competition is a good thing, but when Accent Prone, a furniture and home accessories shop, and Illuminations of the Triad, a lighting and home decorating store, both of Kernersville, NC, partnered and sponsored the Ugliest Room Makeover, the campaigning began and the ugliest room in the Triad won! For Cheri Bull, owner and designer at Accent Prone, the idea of an ugliest room makeover contest was a great way to get the word out on her shop’s ability to help customers with their interior design. “Illuminations of the Triad and Accent Prone wanted to get together and do a combined giveaway to gain more publicity on Facebook. We wanted to do something fun for our fans and demonstrate our design capabilities. Accent Prone is very eclectic, and we wanted to show how we could us the furniture and home accessories we have, from traditional to modern deco, to turn a room from ugly to unbelievable. Illuminations of the Triad would provide new lighting for the room or space that won,” said Cheri. So, the contest began with about 15 entries ranging from foyers, to sunrooms, to bonus rooms to bedrooms. “People got votes by sharing their photo on Facebook and asking their family and friends to vote for them. Our friend, Angela Shoffner of SEO Rocket, a social media marketing group in Kernersville, helped us set up an app to keep up with the votes,” Cheri commented. In the end, the guest bedroom of Brooke Eagle of Advance, NC, was judged ugliest, with 550 votes. Brooke entered her guest bedroom in the competition because she just didn’t know where to turn in decorating it, and because the room is very special to her and husband Chris. “Our best friend, Cody McKenzie, is currently serving 9 months in Afghanistan with the 101st Airborne, 327th Infantry Division, and when he visits us, he stays in our guest room. He will have a new room the next time he stays at our house,” Brooke commented. With the project completed, Brooke’s guest bedroom has a completely NEW look, featuring furniture and accessories by Accent Prone, with lighting by Illuminations of the Triad.



Although the ugliest room makeover contest is over, Accent Prone and Illuminations of the Triad are available to help others with their decorating needs. “If you need some help decorating your home, just bring some pictures of your space into our store and get a free design consultation. Justin Lingafelt and I have had years of experience designing showrooms for the furniture market and were glad to have the opportunity of the contest to break into more residential projects,” stated Cheri. Accent Prone is located at 1030 South Main Street, Space F, Kernersville, NC. Hours of operation: Mon-Fri, 10-7pm, Sat 10-6pm.

WOAMTEC Business Boot Camp By Meghan E.W. Corbett s women continue to make major steps toward the quest for equality in the workplace, organizations are being created to help them in their efforts through advanced networking with other career-driven women. One such organization is Women on a Mission to Earn Commission, or WOAMTEC, which will celebrate its second anniversary this month!


“Our Winston-Salem WOAMTEC chapter began in May of 2011 with just two members, Mary G. Mora, who joined online before ever attending a meeting, and myself,” said Executive Director Gina Mounce. “I believed there was a need in WinstonSalem for a networking group that does more than pass out business cards. WOAMTEC is dedicated to relationship networking. We are about getting to know our fellow members and discovering how we can help them achieve their goals. We are a group of working women and women entrepreneurs who connect to motivate, educate and empower each other and are focused on relationship marketing.” Mounce is focused on helping her chapter’s members increase their business opportunities as they promote WOAMTEC’s philosophy of faith, family and career. One way she hopes to achieve these goals is through hosting a Business Boot Camp and annual fundraiser. “WOAMTEC has two national conventions each year in Orlando,” said Mounce. “Since all of our members cannot attend the national events, WOAMTEC is coming to us! Kathleen Hawkins, our founder and president, has recognized that we have one of the top ten chapters in the nation here in WinstonSalem, and two new chapters have just been established in Greensboro and

Raleigh. Kathleen has built several successful multi-million dollar businesses and taught business and marketing classes at the university level. She is coming here to support our members by giving them tools to grow their businesses and make our local economy stronger. The event will also be a fundraiser for The WOAMTEC Foundation, our national non-profit organization and The Brook Women’s Hope Center.” Not only does WOAMTEC help women achieve their career goals, it seeks to promote non-profits in need in the area as well. “The Brook Women’s Hope Center is one of our WOAMTEC members,” said Mounce. “WOAMTEC women are very interested in increasing our financial commission, but we are truly more interested in the greater commissions in life. Our partnership with The Hope Center gives us an opportunity to offer a helping hand to women in need in our community. All of us have had overwhelming circumstances in our life when everything seems hopeless. The Brook Women’s Hope Center is there to help through life transitions such as divorce, loss of a spouse, medical problems, financial challenges or joblessness. Through counseling, education, emotional support, faith-based studies and referral to appropriate services in the community, they turn hopelessness into hope. The connections we offer to The Brook Women’s Hope Center help them to provide many of the services that women here need.” WOAMTEC’s Business Boot Camp will be held Tuesday, May 21st from 1-4pm at the Broyhill Historic Events Center located at 3540 Clemmons Road in Clemmons. Tickets are $20 for members and $69 for nonmembers. “This event is open to all

women and men in the community,” said Mounce. “Kathleen has conducted hundreds of business assessments to WOAMTEC members over the year as a benefit of their membership. She knows what small businesses across America need to grow their business and create stronger local economies. This is a great way to network with other like-minded business people, make strategic connections and get some specific tools put in place to have your best year ever in 2013.” Subjects covered in this event include how to choose strategic partners to grow your business, how to get past the gatekeeper and to the lead, unraveling social media techniques, how to increase your advertising exposure using cause-marketing techniques, strategies for lowering your expenses and optimizing profit margin, as well as communication psychology for working with different personality types. There will also be a silent auction to raise money for The Brook Women’s Hope Center. “The event will be a fundraiser for The WOAMTEC Foundation, The Brook Women’s Hope Center and our national non-profit organization called ‘Courage to Dream,’” said President and Founder Kathleen Hawkins. “This organization helps women and children who have been abused, neglected and abandoned due to no fault of their own.” Registration for the Business Boot Camp can be done through the website at For more information about WOAMTEC, call 336.830.2088 or email Gina Mounce at WOAMTEC of Winston-Salem is also on Facebook at

tarting its 7th year, ARTS ON SUNDAY will be held every Sunday in May from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Located in the Arts District in downtown Winston-Salem, this festival of art, crafts and music will traditionally help kick off that “summer attitude.”

This family oriented event, that is free to the public, will highlight regional artists presenting the whole spectrum of art materials. From pottery to handcrafted jewelry, paintings to wood and metal sculpture, there will be something unique to see. And we can’t forget Kids Corner, where you can bring down the little ones to create art work and expand their imaginations. This has been a perennial favorite every year. Each week has its own theme. Starting with Blues-a-Palooza on May 5th featuring the best blues artists in the region, including Martha Bassett, Peter May and Abe Reid; followed by Mother’s Day Jam on the 12th, featuring Claire Culbraith, Nightsong, Emerge, Big Ron Hunter and the Twin City Buskers. The 19th offers a new theme to the mix… Rhythm of Art. Performances from around the world will be on display, including Brazilian dance/martial arts to African dance to Tai Chi, from world music to RJ Reynolds High School performance ensembles. Finally there is Beach Party Sunday where you can shag the afternoon away to the sound of The Elbows. Arts on Sunday Series is produced by Art for Art’s Sake (aka The AFAS Group or AFAS for short) and is becoming a part of the fabric of our community that everyone can come and enjoy. It is but one of the community inspired activities that AFAS has initiated. From Red Dog Gallery to public art projects, to outreach workshops held at their Unleashed Art Center, they are continually pushing the envelope to explore new ways to build on the City of Arts and Innovation. For details on what they do you can go to

s the temperatures climb, we’ll all be crawling out of hibernation and heading out into the sun once more. For many of us, this means heading out with our four legged friends by our side.

A popular outdoor venture is the local dog park. While this is a great opportunity to let your dog meet some new friends and for you to catch up on your vitamin D, there are some common courtesies that you should consider for the safety of your beloved pooch and others at the park. 1. Never bring a pup that is less than four months old.

4. Get your pet spayed or neutered before a dog park visit.

2. Don’t bring an aggressive or nervous dog to a busy dog park. A dog park is not a good way to find out if your pet is aggressive towards other dogs. Several dog parks offer a large dog and small dog section for the park, so make sure you start your pet in the appropriate side so they feel comfortable and less overwhelmed. 3. Clean up after your dog. There is a reason there are bags provided throughout the park; you are expected to clean up after your pet. Most parks can only afford to pay for a staff member to clean up the park once to twice a day so they rely on you to be responsible with your pet. It’s also important to remember that if your dog is suffering from intestinal upset, you should avoid taking it to public places.

Male dogs tend to be more aggressive when they are still intact. This makes it dangerous to bring them to dog parks where the sense of competition is much higher. It’s better to have your pet spayed or neutered earlier in life, preferably just after three months old. This makes the surgery less traumatic for the pet. It’s also important to spay your female pet because they will receive an excess amount of unwanted attention in the park. 5. Don’t get in the middle of a pack. It’s important to not jump in the middle of a group of animals that you suspect are getting aggressive. You’re putting yourself at great risk for serious injury. It’s better to keep a close eye on your pet the entire time you are at the park and nip problems in the bud before they progress into a fight. This means that you should put down the smart phone, put aside your reading and focus on some quality time with your furry pal. If you notice that there’s some aggressive behavior being stirred up, whether it is your pet or another dog at the park, it may be best to take a break in the park’s parking lot or maybe head home for the day. Local dog parks you can visit: PHOTOGRAPHY BY ARON DANIELS

Puppies need to be completely vaccinated against distemper-parvo and kennel cough. The parvo virus runs rampant amongst puppies in the spring and summer months. They need to receive the full series of vaccines before they are adequately protected from the virus. Ask your vet to explain the parvo virus and their suggested vaccine schedule with you to get a better understanding.

a special day in downtown MARK for Winston-Salem: the first of Tropical YOUR anniversary Smoothie Café on April 27!

Fi s te a r b e l Ce



Tropical Smoothie will celebrate the occasion with sidewalk sampling and other activities, but perhaps the biggest news from this one-year-old is a second location: BB&T Ballpark. Beginning with the 2013 Dash season, Tropical Smoothie will serve fresh frozen treats on the main concourse at BB&T Park. If the Dash aren’t at home, visit Tropical Smoothie at the corner of Fourth and Cherry Streets for a quick tropical outing featuring tastes of Hawaii, Thailand, Jamaica, and Mexico. It tastes better -- and you’ll feel better.

Five servings of fruits and veggies in a single cup? Try the Island Green or the Caribbean Carrot! Make it a filling low-calorie meal with a Jamaican Jerk Bowl, Fish Tacos or Chipotle Chicken Flatbread, or even the soon-to-be-worldfamous Loaded Spinach Salad. Steve Scroggin of Tropical Smoothie said, “Tropical Smoothie is not a guilty pleasure. It’s a healthy one you can enjoy time and time again.” “There’s no better way to make a great meal than with real, minimally processed, healthy food. Strawberries, mangos, pineapple, cranberry, goji, açai, guava, blueberries, raspberries, lemon, lime, orange juice, passion fruit, bananas -- these are our keys and we play music for the taste buds with

them every day,” Scroggin said. “We are practiced in the art of the smoothie. We demand the finest ingredients the earth has to offer -- even our ice is special, designed to blend perfectly,” he added. “Our smoothies are available in everything from Low Fat to Simply Indulgent varieties and make a great snack, meal or special treat. Do you deserve a Peanut Butter Paradise or a Mocha Madness coffee smoothie? Go ahead, you’ll love it.” Tropical Smoothie is one of the first downtown businesses open every morning and always has brewed-to-order coffee and breakfast items for people on the run or for a longer stay if there’s time to relax. Summer time is smoothie time, and the fun doesn’t stop at Tropical Smoothie after the first anniversary celebration on April 27. Get ready for Tropical Smoothie Flip Flop Day on June 21, 2013. Arrive in flip flops, and leave with a free Jetty Punch smoothie! To find out more about Tropical Smoothie Café or to place an online order, please visit

Momsanity: Helping the Busy Mom Stay Sane By Karen Holbrook

Wilkins and Saunders are certified Metabolic Effect trainers while Horney has a background in Exercise Physiology. Combined, these three ladies are able to pack in a powerhouse workout/nutrition regiment that fits into any mom’s tightly wound schedule.

The truth is, no one has motherhood all figured out. And no matter how easy other moms make it look, you can still find yourself hanging onto your sanity like a loose tooth. Enter the ladies of Momsanity. Momsanity is an online community headed up by three women that offer real advice that helps women become the mothers they wish to be by focusing on faith, fitness and nutrition. According to their Facebook page, “Momsanity is a community of moms striving to achieve balance through physical, emotional and spiritual wellness. Through quick and simple fat loss focused workouts, on the go nutritious meals, positive mindset techniques, daily devotions, and tons of practical information, Momsanity Coaches are here to encourage moms to achieve balance.”

76 /

Founded by three women from the local community, Debbie Wilkins, Kate Horney and Emily Saunders, Momsanity’s roots are firmly planted in the knowledge that God is their strength. Each of these women has faced her own trials in becoming the mother she wants to be for her children. For Debbie Wilkins, her biggest battle was losing her husband and the father of their four children. “It is the most surreal experience and the pain is deep,” said Wilkins. “God’s ways are not our ways. Through his passing, I have been cradled with the Lord’s comfort and strength. God is real; He is loving; He is in control.”

Wilkins also posted recently on Facebook that exercise can take place at any time. “Yesterday I was stuck at the dentist's office for 90 minutes. As my son enjoyed laughing gas and inappropriate cartoons, I decided to exercise for sanity. It was a tight space so I did static wall squats. Back against the wall, seated in an imaginary chair. I rested when needed and repeated often. Fitness happens anywhere.” The popularity of the group has already begun to soar, reaching nearly 1,000 likes on their Facebook page since the beginning of the year. With the launch of their website and many plans already in the works, the popularity of Momsanity continues to grow, giving moms everywhere support to stay strong.



othing is more natural to a woman than motherhood. The moment you hold your new baby, all of your instincts kickin and you know exactly what to do, no matter the situation… or so all the other mothers make it seem.

The website,, offers blogs written for encouragement, as well as countless recipe and fitness ideas. For moms on the run, catch up with Momsanity on Facebook at where updates are posted continuously throughout the day. Nutrition tips include fat-saving ideas for meals, utilizing fresh herbs or simple recipes that that can be put together at a moment’s notice.

FASHIONABLE FANS… Lighting Tips from Della Lawson and Paige Gallman


pring is here and there is no better way to embrace the warm weather than by adding a new ceiling fan to your home! No longer just for sunrooms, with the many decorative styles available, you can find a ceiling fan for any room or even outdoors. When looking for your next fan, here are a few helpful tips: • Fans with ornate and decorative designs are both gracious and functional for a more traditional look.

• Many of the contemporary fans artfully combine the use of metal and wood, and two or three blade designs giving a sleek urban look that seamlessly mesh in today’s décor trends. • In smaller rooms, use a close-to-ceiling fan to fit your needs. Referred to as a hugger style ceiling fan, they are specifically designed for smaller rooms or rooms with low ceilings. This style is perfect for small bedrooms, home offices, dressing rooms, laundry rooms or low ceilings in basements. • You can design your own ceiling fan by selecting colors and finishes, blade materials, and unique glass design options to create the perfect representation of your style and décor personality. • A hot trend in home decorating is maximizing the use of outdoor areas. Add a new level of comfort with the addition of an outdoor ceiling fan. Select an exterior fan especially designed for use outdoors made with more durable materials to withstand the outdoor elements. Damp location fans should be used on covered patios or porch areas. For more exposed locations like gazebos or pergolas, opt for a wet location ceiling fan. • Be sure to measure a room before purchasing a fan as there are different blade lengths for spaces of every size. • When measuring efficiency, an important component is airflow. This is determined by the quality of the ceiling fan motor and the pitch of the blade. Generally, the greater the angle or pitch of the blade, the more air the fan will move. Blade pitches between 12 and 16 degrees offer good, efficient airflow. • Remember, turn clockwise in the summertime, which circulates the cooler air. Use the reverse switch in the winter to turn counter-clockwise to pull the hot air down since heat rises. This will reduce your heating bill! From the kitchen to the living room, sunroom to covered porch, ceiling fans provide more than energy savings and air circulation; they can set the tone for an entire room’s sense of style. Whether casual, contemporary, eclectic, modern, transitional, or simply traditional, there are ceiling fan styles to achieve your desired fashion and functional needs.

Trend Setters – Amanda’s Permanent Makeup By Meghan E.W. Corbett

No matter how hard we try, we cannot add hours to the day. Unfortunately, 24 will always be the magic number, and with our lives getting busier and busier as the years go by, we must find other ways to cram a day’s worth of activity into those 24 short hours. For many women, the morning routine automatically cuts some of the precious time available in the day. Eliminating the time it takes to apply makeup every day would certainly help out, but going without makeup can be a scary thought! Instead, why not take advantage of Amanda’s Permanent Makeup, so you’ll never have to worry about leaving the house without your face on again? Amanda Airo comes from a massage therapy background with more than nine years of experience. She is currently an esthetician at Trend Setters in Kernersville, where she not only incorporates a relaxing massage along with each facial, but she now has the opportunity to help individuals achieve goals to get their skin healthy and radiant. “I can also help you save time in the morning with my permanent makeup services,” said Airo. “For this service, I offer a free consultation, and during the procedure, I make sure my clients are comfortable every step of the way. I believe that customer satisfaction is the only way to run a successful business.” Permanent makeup can also help those with other facial issues that affect their daily routines. “Permanent makeup can help those that have vision problems, makeup allergies, beach lovers, oily skin, alopecia or for those who would like to save time,” said Airo. “It can also be used to help camouflage imperfections.” There will always be skeptics when it comes to the latest treatments and technologies, but Airo assures that permanent makeup is safe and effective. “Some common misconceptions about permanent makeup is that permanent eyebrows may look fake or drawn on, but the truth is, using hair like strokes leaves eyebrows looking very natural,” said Airo. “Another misconception is that permanent makeup may appear to look false or too dark in color, but it can look more natural than conventional cosmetics. One other misconception is many people think that traditional tattooing is the same as permanent makeup, but the truth is that while both procedures involve tattooing the skin, traditional tattooing adds pigment to the third layer of the skin while permanent makeup adds pigment to the second layer of the skin called the dermis. This creates a final result of a soft blend of color to the tattooed area.” Permanent makeup is not for everyone, but for those interested in the concept, it is absolutely worth a visit for a free consultation to learn more. “The cost of my services is always fair, and consultations are always free,” said Airo. “I also offer a variety of services and often have specials listed on my website. I am happy to be able to provide a new service, Microdermabrasion Advanced. In less than an hour, you will see great results and be able to get right back to your day with a brighter, more youthful glow, so stop in for a visit to see all the options available!” Trend Setters is located at 210 North Main Street in Kernersville.

2520 Tavern 2520 Lewisville Clemmons Road, Clemmons, NC 27012 • 336.766.9927 M-F 11-10 • Sat. 4-10 • Sun. 11-9


don’t have room for an introduction, so you aren’t getting one this month. Sorry. Though I’m also not sorry because the lack of space is due to the truly mouthwatering, satisfying meal I had this month at 2520 Tavern in Clemmons!

Co-owners Sam Gianopoulos, Johnny Pappas, Paul Gallins and Teddy Gallins seem to be in the restaurant business as well as the “put all other restaurants out of business” business with their well-rounded menu that pulls from Greek, Italian, Asian and Cajun origins. Chef Brian Fox and our server, Drew Nicol, took extremely good care of us! We began with breaded royal Thai shrimp drizzled with a garlic Thai chili sauce and black sesame seeds over crispy fried wontons that single-handedly made an antiseafood eater scrape the bottom of the dish; YiaYia’s spanakopita rolled into an eggroll and fried with a side of marinara…whether you consider them Greek, Asian or Italian, they are unbelievable; followed by seared and sliced ahi tuna served over a fried wonton topped with crab cream cheese, sliced avocado, sriracha and a pan Asian plum sauce. These appetizers had wonderful flavor, just the right amount of seasoning and impeccable presentation. If you haven’t noticed yet, this review is shaping up to be a rave! Salads are next, and the salads at 2520 Tavern are anything but boring! We were lucky enough to try the oyster salad complete with mixed greens, red onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, mushrooms, bleu cheese, bacon and citrus vinaigrette. The oysters were tender and lightly battered…not to mention there were a ton of them! Then we dove head first into the spinach salad, well that’s what we all wanted to do anyway. Spinach, red onions, candied pecans, Havarti and mozzarella cheese, raspberry vinaigrette and strawberries that tasted as if they had just been picked from a nearby farm.

Sometimes we get full and turn down offers for more, but not this night! We still had entrees to go. We started with the salmon piccatta: grilled salmon, steamed broccoli, classic piccatta sauce garnished with a fried shrimp. The salmon was flaky, perfectly cooked and the sauce gave just enough flavor to the broccoli to make you forget you are wasting stomach space on a vegetable! Next, we had the bourbon marinated steak and shrimp. Who would have thought bourbon would make such an unbelievable marinade? Served with a shrimp skewer, blistered corn and potato cakes, this is well worth the tightening belt. We couldn’t leave without trying one of the pastas, right? Well, that’s what we told ourselves as we asked to try the seafood and cheese which consisted of lobster, scallops and bacon in a fourcheese Cajun cream sauce served over a bed of angel hair pasta and topped with herb bread crumbs. Let’s just say you make room for a dish like this! As I was contemplating slamming my head into the pasta bowl, Drew came by to snap me back to the reality that desserts were on the way. Fried doughnuts, better known as loukoumades, drizzled with honey and powdered sugar next to a bowl of chocolate anglaise, and peaches and cream in a warm bourbon sauce. One of my dinner guests finished her serving of the peaches and cream, and I have no idea how, other than it was too good to waste! We took the leftover loukoumades home with us, and I’m not ashamed to say I ate them for breakfast the next morning, and they were still just as good as they were the night before. Forget whatever you had planned for dinner, and treat yourself to 2520 Tavern. Delicious house wines, phenomenal flavor combinations, unreal prices, great service and the perfect place for a casual night out or a private party. Just make sure you tell them Rosey sent you, or better yet, take me with you!

Is Being Contented Enough?


he middle of March ushered in a hint of warmer weather and the thrill of watching great college basketball games – two things that make me very happy. Well, the weather was just a tease and some of the basketball games did not end as I had expected, so my happiness about warm, sunny weekends and final-four hopes were whisked away by a cold wind. This prompted Omar, my caring coauthor and significant other, to ask me what I thought it meant to be truly happy and contented. I immediately came up with a long list of things that bring me happiness. What topped my list included a rainy afternoon spent sitting by a fire reading a favorite book (specifically, To Kill a Mockingbird), a welldeserved promotion at work, a straight-A report card brought home by my daughter, and catching up with a good friend over drinks and dinner. These were followed by finishing an especially difficult boot camp at the gym, a stroll through an art museum full of impressionist paintings, and losing that last 5 pounds that I spent the whole holiday season putting on, which meant that new dress would soon be hanging in my closet. Omar and I tried to identify a common thread that might clue him into promoting more happiness in my life, but we could not find that tie. So we looked to the dictionary for some help and it defined happiness with the following description: “Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.”

It dawned on us after reading this definition, that I had only listed examples of contentment, but not of intense joy. I tried to reflect on those recent moments when I have felt intense joy and every example included Omar: a long hike on a sunny day with Omar; sharing popcorn with Omar at the movies; sharing a glass of wine and dinner across the table from Omar; holding Omar’s hand while we walked on the beach; dancing slow to a favorite love song; and feeling his arm around me in the morning as we wake to a new day. These events may not seem that special, but with right person they can be more than special – they can be joyful. Omar was missing from my original list; even though the events on that list typically brought me happiness and contentment I realized that I was most joyful in a special, romantic relationship. We hope this does not sound like bragging or boasting, as both Omar and I are widowed and know what it feels like

to try and find contentment every day without a partner. We survived a dark time, made the best of each day, and found great happiness in our children, our friends, our church family, in books and journaling, and through prayer. We had known the joy and happiness of marriage and raising two loving families, but now were faced with adjusting our view of happiness, of future love, and maybe the possibility of life without another partner. Before we met, we were going through the motions and filling a void with “busywork,” telling ourselves that we were contented to do so. After all, we both had plenty of memories of joyful events (births, weddings, graduations). Neither of us was truly joyful, but we had not given up on finding that feeling again. Most readers, we hope, have experienced the joy that we are describing at some point in their lives. Some readers have lost that joy through breakups, divorce, or death. Some may still be searching for that first truly happy relationship. Wherever the reader might be on their journey to finding happiness, we hope that they search long and hard for joy, and not

By Omar & Christie settle for only contentment. Both are good, but joy feels much more like the euphoria that results from the first cup of coffee in the morning! Not every woman needs to be in a romantic relationship to feel joy, but waking up next to Mr. Right, his arm wrapped around you like a blanket, is a great start. Those readers who have given up the hunt for joy may have, instead, found contentment with a pet, through work, in church or civic involvement, or with a supportive group of girlfriends. Some may be taking a break from the happiness hunt, recharging their batteries, and joining the fray after some rest and reflection on relationships. As Omar would say, “It is all good.” May you find “intense joy” wherever you look and find value in this anonymous quote printed in the Winton-Salem Journal in March: Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can’t change. Kiss slowly, play hard, forgive quickly, take chances, give everything and have no regrets. Life’s too short to be anything but happy. ~Author Unknown

To Your Health! By Sara Migliarese and David McConnall


ince the fitness boom of the 1980s, running has become one of our nation’s favorite ways to lose weight, reduce stress, strengthen the heart, and remain active. This activity is relatively cheap and can be enjoyed by people of all sizes, ages, and athletic abilities. Through the decades, running has grown not only in popularity but also in competition. Runners may start out with a friendly fun run to raise money for a worthy cause, graduate to a 5K or 10K race, and maybe even join a more competitive event that requires travel across the country, like the Boston marathon or the Ironman triathlon in Hawaii. There seems to be a fun run or competition that meets every level of ability, every charitable cause, and every amount of expense. One added expense that runners incur as their distance increases may be the medical cost of treating the almost inevitable event of running injuries. Running injuries have skyrocketed as the popularity of the sport has increased, especially in women, and are the most common reason why people stop running. Most running injuries in women result from overuse and are easily prevented and/or remedied with ice, anti-inflammatories, and rest. Sudden increases in training mileage are the most common cause of running injuries. An avid female runner may try to run through an overuse injury, like tendonitis or shin splints, and may turn their once easily resolved problem into a chronic injury that requires medical attention from a therapist or physician. In general, female runners are at a higher risk for injury if they have

86 /

Women Running Wild irregular periods, are distance runners, or have a BMI < 21kg/m (a very small body mass index). One of the most common injuries in female runners involves patellar tracking problems. The patella, or knee cap, typically gets pulled out to the side or laterally as women walk or run due to a wider hip angle in women than in men. An abnormal running pattern or tight muscles can cause abnormal patellar tracking, which can lead to wear and tear of the cartilage in the knee and roughing under the knee cap (chondromalacia). This manifests itself in pain after exercise rather than during exercise, clicking or popping in the knee, or pain with prolonged sitting with the knees bent for a long period of time (“moviegoer’s knee”). The pain may feel vague or diffuse inside the knee or behind the knee cap. If this condition limits activity or exercise, then a visit to an orthopedist or physical therapist is definitely indicated. Other common running injuries involving the knee are iliotibial band friction syndrome, patellar tendonitis, meniscal injuries in the knee, and popliteal tendonitis. In the hip, the most common pain-producing injuries result in muscle strains and tendonitis, which typically occur from sudden acceleration/deceleration maneuvers, direction changes or eccentric contractions (muscle lengthening contractions). Iliotibial band friction syndrome is a common cause of lateral hip pain, as well as knee pain, and is characterized by sharp or burning pain on the outside of the leg that is exacerbated by activity. Stress fractures are potentially serious conditions

that affect women more frequently than men. Snapping hip syndrome is a benign condition that results from tight connective tissues passing repeatedly over bony structures in the hip. And these are just the most common hip injuries! Running injuries below the knee commonly include plantar fasciitis, tibial stress syndrome, and stress fractures. Runners who use a more “flat-footed” position while running may experience a higher incidence of these common foot and ankle injuries. A typical progression of running injury starts with a slight discomfort in a local area, which then progresses to persistent pain and swelling in that area, and eventually intensifies to the point of pain that prevents running all together. Resting from running or cutting down on mileage at the first sign of overuse could easily prevent chronic injury in most cases. Altering your

running conditions or changing running mechanics can also help speed recovery from overuse. Shortening the length of your running stride can lessen stress on the knee joints, sacrificing speed, but in return, getting pain-free activity. Changing the running surface from concrete to a treadmill or dirt trail can also decrease joint stress. Most runners can stay “up on their feet” with a common-sense approach to injury. At the first sign of overuse, a runner should ice, take anti-inflammatories if they are able, and should rest. Avoid sudden increases in running mileage and run on a softer surface when you can. Three days off is much better than 3 weeks off from the sport you love. And remember to seek a medical professional if pain becomes chronic and does not respond to conservative treatment. Now, go run wild! References available upon request.

The 17th Annual Hospice Hope Run 10K Run & 5K Run/Walk The 17th Annual Hospice Hope Run was an enormous success! With more than 2,000 participants, supporters and volunteers, this year’s run raised more than $180,000 to support Hospice & Palliative CareCenter. “The sense of love, remembrance and respect was palpable at this year’s Hospice Hope Run,” said Ann Gauthreaux, Director of Public Relations at Hospice & Palliative CareCanter. “As always, the crowd and the efforts of so many participants and supporters are heartwarming. Many of our friends and neighbors may be touched directly by Hospice & Palliative CareCenter. The proceeds from this event provide invaluable support. Thank you!” The Hospice Hope Run would not be possible without the countless hours spent by dedicated volunteers making many preparations. Forsyth Magazines would like to give a special thank you to Matthew Hall of 201 Media Productions for his video coverage of the day. A final cut of the video can be found on the Forsyth Woman/Family Family Facebook page. Forsyth Magazines would also like to say thank you to Bowman Gray, Lloyd Aaron Photography and Brad Richard with NC Prep Photos.

An Outdoor Lover’s Paradise:

Hanging Rock State Park By Lisa S.T. Doss


housands of people will decide to run errands on a Saturday morning, which will cause traffic jams and irritation. It is the last thing you wish to experience, yet, the ease of traveling on another road away from the congestion of cars and people improves your disposition. Allow a GPS to guide you to Danbury and the Sauratown Mountains. The drive is not far, quite picturesque actually, and soon you will pass through the entrance of Hanging Rock State Park, ready for the day’s spontaneous adventure!


One of the first places to stop is the visitor’s center, built in 1993. The contact station is a stone and wooden building that offers a full bathroom and exhibit rooms. A representative will gladly answer questions and be able to advise you on specific aspects of the park. It is a place to park and access many of the surrounding sights. Wooden posts, labeled clearly and marked with arrows, will lead you to the path you most desire. For those who want to hit the trails, start at the visitor’s center for convenience. An impressive 12 trails, spanning 18 miles of welllabeled, clean and cleared pathways will boost your expectation of how well Hanging Rock State Park is maintained. Hikers will experience cascades and waterfalls, high cliffs, and mountain caves. Most will be so taken by the view, it will be hard not to voice the words “beautiful” and “spectacular” along the way. The outdoorsman will already be equipped with good shoes, bottles of water and leads for the dogs. As long as your canine companion is leashed, he or she is more than welcome to enjoy the park. Be forewarned, though: not all trails are paved. For the advanced hiker, expect to find dirt roads leading up to steeper hills. Benches are placed, as a nice touch, for those who have the determination to make it, but require the occasional rest. If the goal is to reach the top of Hanging Rock, hikers will want to take pictures of the interesting rock formations and gorgeous views. Competitive hikers can enjoy the Five-Point Challenge, which includes five lookout points in a ten-mile loop.

An expert rock climber will tell anyone who needs advice to try Cook’s Wall and Moore’s Wall at Hanging Rock, a premier destination for seasoned and novice climbers. Side-by-side, the 400-foot cliffs extends two miles. From maps at the visitor’s center, climbers will find a clearly marked parking lot and trail leading to the well-known cliff, Moore’s Wall. All climbers need to be aware of the adventurous nature of the descents. Finding the rap station will be, as one climber expressed it, a “true Easter egg hunt.” At the top of the knob, visitors will find a lookout tower and a 360-degree view. Safety is a clear priority to all those who brave the cliffs. Climbers are responsible for providing their own equipment, as well as using safety practices. Registering for a free activity permit is available to all who want to climb. In 1994, Kevin Adams wrote a book entitled “North Carolina Waterfalls: A Hiking and Photography Guide.” While waterfalls span the state, leaving some adventurists out of town for days, the Piedmont Triad can reap the rewards of living within close proximity of many beautiful cascades and waterfalls. Even on the hottest days, the Lower Cascades have become a popular place to visit. A paved path leads to a series of stairs descending down to the base. Platforms provide visitors the chance to stop and enjoy the beautiful scene. All of the falls are approximately a mile from the parking lot and accessible to all ages; however, signs will clearly alert visitors to be aware of steep stairs and potentially wet surfaces. Everyone will also enjoy the walk to the Upper Cascades, Window Falls, and Hidden Falls. While summer is an ideal time to visit, expect crowds, especially on the weekends. Hanging Rock is a great place close to home for outdoor lovers. There are many other opportunities to explore, especially if you also enjoy boating, fishing, and swimming. Races for cyclists and runners occur throughout the spring to fall season, as well. If interested, continue “sight seeing” and you will find a great deal more happening at Hanging Rock State Park.

By Anne Marie Goslak “Does math have anything at all to do with golf? Do you actually use math in what you do, other than to add the numbers on the score card?”


was playing in the Tennessee Women’s Open, enjoying the “celebrity status” a golf professional feels when our entourage of nearly 300 people invades a small town. “Good Luck Golf Pros!” signs hung in every restaurant. People stopped to ask us for our autographs. We were not super stars, but to the local community, we were special. They would follow us on the course and would wait around outside the scorer’s tent to see if we would stop and talk with them. That’s where I met a young boy named Jeremy. He looked to be around nine years old. His mom said he was struggling with math. Like many kids, Jeremy would say, “Math is stupid. When am I ever going to use this stuff in real life?” In a last ditch effort, his mom took him to the golf tournament and forced him to ask a big question. Like a dog being forced into the vet’s office, Jeremy was shoved my way by his mother. “Excuse me, ma’am,” Jeremy stammered. “I um…. I have a question for you.” He shuffled his feet and looked at the ground.

“As a matter of fact,” I replied, “I use math all the time, every day. The better my math skills, the lower my golf scores.” Jeremy seemed shocked, so I tried to explain. “Let me take you through a number crunching experience and see how you do. My ball is six yards behind the 100 yard marker (106 yards), but since the greens are firm, I need to hit it 8 yards short to allow it to run out (98 yards). But also, the green is elevated so I will have to add 10 yards (108 yards). Additionally, there is a 12 yard cross wind, determined by the angle the grass goes when I toss it in the air. I need to take half that distance and add it to my total (114) and then aim six yards to the right to allow the wind to blow the ball.” Jeremy’s eyes opened up wider, so I tried again. “Let’s do a different one. I hit my ball in the rough. There is a bush directly in front of my ball. How do I know which club can get the ball high enough to clear the bush?” I then showed him that the angle of the shaft would equal the angle of the ball flight, which would help me get the ball over the bush. By this point, Jeremy was even more surprised, but no longer looking quite so skeptical. Finally, we talked about how the golf pros keep their statistics on everything from how many fairways they hit to how close they average with their 6 iron. With that data, they can talk with their coaches and create a practice routine to make them even better. At this point, Jeremy was seeing the light and nodding his head in agreement. In the end, I said to him, “The question is not whether you need math for golf. The question is, how many different kinds of math do you need?” He thought about it and said, “Addition, subtraction, fractions, angles and statistics.” “Great job, Jeremy,” I exclaimed. “You get an A! Now go thank your math teacher.”

Hannah on her pony, Epic Splash

Horse, Education & Rescue Organization Meadowlark Elementary Raises Money for Great Cause By Carolyn S. Peterson There are few creatures on earth more beautiful and majestic than horses. For centuries, horses have been beside mankind in times of war and peace. It is that vision of the bond that a horse has with man that makes it all the more deplorable when horses or other equines are neglected or abused by those they serve. H.E.R.O., a local 501 (c) (3), is dedicated to the welfare and rehabilitation of abandoned, abused, neglected and unwanted equine in North Carolina through education, rescue and community awareness. Since 2007, H.E.R.O. has helped countless equine become healthy and regain their lives. For Lesley Hunt, H.E.R.O. President, making community outreach a priority has paid off. She and her group recently found out just how far their message had gotten when Hannah Smith, a 5th grader at Meadowlark Elementary School in Winston-Salem, wrote a paper for a competition featuring the H.E.R.O. organization and won. Soon, Hannah’s paper was followed by a school-sponsored yard

94 /

sale which raised $2,558.61 for H.E.R.O.! Sharing Her Love of Horses For Hannah Smith, writing a paper on horses and a group whose work she is well acquainted with came naturally. “I’ve been riding for almost 8 years and I truly love horses. Because of the way I feel, it is upsetting to think that there are horses that are not taken care of, or abused. When my assignment came to write a story on a charity, I chose H.E.R.O. and out of all of the students in the five fifth grade classes, my paper won,” said Hannah. And that paper not only won for Hannah, but for H.E.R.O. and the equine they care for on a daily basis. Each year Meadowlark Elementary School has a school wide yard sale, with the proceeds going to the charity written about in the winning paper. This year, since Hannah’s paper won, the big winner was H.E.R.O. “When I was notified of Hannah’s paper and of the donations that would be made, I thought how

wonderful that our organization was chosen. I truly thought the check would be for $100-$500, but I was shocked when the school told me that the check would be for $2,558.61. I immediately thought that the money would be spent on good quality hay and other things we need, like a run-in shed for the paddock, vet bills, farrier bills, grain, transport and the overall upkeep of horses and buildings of H.E.R.O. We are truly blessed to have this honor,” Lesley commented. With the wonderful donation, H.E.R.O. can continue to follow their mission of rehabilitating equine. “Our work begins when a horse, donkey or mule arrives and we take a picture, leading to an evaluation by a vet to see what the animal’s needs are for it to be healthy. Some are basically a walking skeleton, others may be obese. We make sure they have the feed they need on a schedule that is going to get them back to their optimal health. In the meantime, we are searching for foster homes or someone to adopt them once they are healthy. When they are ready to go to their new home, we take a picture of how great they look and how far they have come in their journey,” stated Lesley. Sadly, the work of H.E.R.O. is needed until people understand that any animal is a responsibility, one that needs care and love to have the best life it can have. Until the day when all equines are cared for, H.E.R.O. will continue to rehabilitate abused, neglected and unwanted horses, donkeys and mules, from the broken down shells of their former selves to healthy, strong and majestic animals. The reward of their work is great for a need that shouldn’t be. If you can help H.E.R.O. or would like to volunteer, visit, for information on volunteering, needed donations and other information on the organization.

The Elephant Chronicles: Mother’s Day Edition By Helen Naples - Owner/Operator Women’s Wellness & Fitness

he story is told of a baby elephant that was tied to a pole. There she learned her limitations. She was not strong enough to break the rope and run free.


When the elephant grew up, she remained imprisoned within the radius of the rope to the pole. She did not realize that she now had the strength to break free. The rope did not keep her trapped. Her belief in the rope did. Here are my top five “mommy ropes” (lies relating to motherhood) which tied me down for years: Lie #1: Worry has power. The Problem: My mother lived by this philosophy. She felt that if she worried enough about her children that bad things would not happen to them. Unfortunately, while worry is powerless to make things better, it can easily make things worse. When I find myself drowning in “what if’s”, I’m not much help to myself, much less to my children. The Truth: When I accept the fact that God has a direct line to each of my children, I’m better able to trust Him with their situations. I can leave them in His care (where they have been all along). Lie #2: Fear is a great motivator. The Problem: The theory looks good on paper: if my kids have enough fear (of wrath, humiliation, shame, blame, guilt, retribution), then maybe they will straighten up and fly right. It doesn’t play out so well in practice. Fear is indeed a powerful motivator- but only for short term behavior change. Long term fallout from fear-based parenting often includes resentment, rebellion, and oh yeah, fear. The Truth: Relationship breeds results. I’m not saying we have to be best friends- especially when they need a parent, not a friend. I’m saying that mutual respect, honesty, and open communication have been more effective tools for me as a mother (and as a daughter!) than wielding a big stick. Lie #3: Doing things for my kids makes me a good mom. The Problem: It depends on what those things are. Making them healthy meals- yes. Staying up half the night “helping” to finish a science project- not

so much. If I do things for my children (or teenagers) that they could (or should) be doing for themselves, I am actually crippling them in two ways. First, I deprive them of the strength and experience that comes from doing things for themselves. Second, I’m setting them up (and setting myself up!) for a “rescue” every time things get tough. The Truth: Before jumping in to “help” my kids in any way (from picking up dirty clothes to meeting a college application deadline), I need to ask myself, “Is this my responsibility or hers?”

Lie #4: It’s best to keep quiet about subjects that are uncomfortable. The Problem: Our kids are dealing with issues that some of us have never even imagined. And dealing with them at a younger age than we would like to admit. Death, disease, divorce, suicide, cutting, bullying, pornography, sexual abuse, pregnancy, abortion, alcohol, drug use… The question is not, “Will the subject come up?” The question is, “With whom do you want your children to discuss these issues- with you or with their friends?” The Truth: While I’m not suggesting a forced conversation, it helps to at least be open, be available, be informed, and be prepared. My personal challenge has been to listen calmly without interrupting, to offer my opinion or advice only when asked for, and to encourage my girls to think through tough issues from many angles. I’ve also tried to be authentic with them about some of my own struggles. Lie #5: My job is to make my kids happy. The Problem: If children were like puppets and we could control their actions and paint a smile on their faces, what a breeze motherhood would be. We could make sure they never had to face failure, rejection, difficulty, loss, heartache… Unfortunately, they would also never know comfort, compassion, healing, and the thrill of overcoming. The Truth: The greatest growth in our lives- mine and my children’s- has been a direct result of the greatest challenges. Most importantly, difficult circumstances have taught us each to rely more fully on God- the most magnificent parent of all.

Tim and Lisa Miller purchased Simply Southern Cuisine in April of 2006. "What sold us was the food itself," said Lisa. "It is good old fashioned southern style food, and most everyone raves about how good our food tastes." It is important to note that everything at Simply Southern Cuisine is homemade from tried and true recipes. Keeping all of the original owner's menus while adding new items and recipes keeps the business fresh and the customers satisfied. "The original owner's daughter, Natalie Loy, came on board with us shortly after we bought the business," said Lisa. “She does most of the cooking, has the official title of ‘Kitchen Manager’ and has the same ‘Betty Crocker’ flair with food as her mom." Stopping in to pick up a meal or to stock your freezer is great, but Simply Southern Cuisine is also the place to call for your catering needs. The catering business actually came first, but Tim quickly realized there was a need for the retail side as well. "The beauty of the retail side is that it introduces our customers to our food, and it is always our hope that it will lead to more catering jobs (as it often does)," said Lisa.


t has been one of those days. You had to stay late at work and then had to rush to get your children to ballet and soccer. The meal you had planned for dinner would mean you would eat late, getting the kids settled way past their bedtimes. You had looked forward to a nice sitdown family dinner with nutritious and delicious food, but how to make this happen with so little time left in the day? The answer to this dilemma is Simply Southern Cuisine. Simply Southern Cuisine offers many wonderful dishes all prepared and waiting for you to put them in the oven. Or, for a small fee, they will cook it for you! You can choose from the always-popular Chicken Pie, Swiss Chicken, Lasagna, Beef Pot Pie, Baked Spaghetti, Spinach Chicken Casserole or one of the other wonderful entrees available daily. Simply Southern Cuisine also has numerous sides and desserts to complete your meal as well as a delicious gluten free menu. With serving sizes that feed one to six and prices that easily fit into your budget, you may never cook again!

Having catered events for more than 250 people, Simply Southern Cuisine can handle parties from 10 to more than 400. It is wonderful to host a party or event and be able to relax and enjoy it instead of worrying about preparing food that everyone will enjoy. The catering staff at Simply Southern Cuisine always goes out of their way to make your catering event special. From breakfast casseroles to luncheon and dinner entrees to salads, desserts and beverages, Simply Southern Cuisine offers delicious dishes for every occasion while preparing everything themselves. "So many other caterers claim their cuisine is homemade when actually they purchase trays of frozen, already prepared food from their suppliers and just pop them in the oven," said Lisa. With so many of us being pulled in several directions at once these days, it is hard to find time to bake for our families, not to mention make something to take to the new neighbor, new parents, as a thank you, etc. Simply Southern Cuisine is your answer there as well. Whatever you choose will delight the receiver of your very thoughtful gift! So take a night (or several) off from cooking while still enjoying dinner at home. "We are a family owned company that takes pride in our business and our food," said Lisa. "We want people to feel good about coming to Simply Southern Cuisine and making their lives easier by purchasing our food so their families can have a home cooked meal instead of fast food. As it says on our website, great food and customer service are our #1 priorities." Simply Southern Cuisine is located at 3570 C Clemmons Road in Clemmons. Hours are Monday through Friday 10am-6pm and Saturday 10am-5pm. Call 336.712.4636, fax 336.712.4632 or visit the website at for more information.

Introducing the “No-Wait” ED The emergency department is Novant Health’s first “No-Wait” model ED. It was created with the goal of continually treating patients efficiently from the time they enter the facility to discharge while providing prompt, high-quality care throughout the treatment process. Upon entering the main ED admitting area, a nurse will begin the assessment process. From there, patients will go to one of 12 examination rooms to be seen by a physician. Following the initial examination, the next stop may be to a sub-waiting room while the physician waits for lab tests or X-rays to be completed. This frees up the initial examination room so physicians can more quickly see the next patient. Everything about the ED is designed to improve efficiency and minimize the time a patient spends at the medical center. Managing this process is a staff of board-certified emergency medicine physicians, nurses and a multidisciplinary team specially trained in providing emergency care.



ith the opening of Novant Health Clemmons Medical Center in April, residents of western Forsyth and Davie counties now have easier and more convenient access to stateof-the-art emergency, surgical and imaging care located right in their own community.

Providing Better Patient Care

The medical center officially opened on April 3, offering 24/7 emergency care, outpatient surgical care and comprehensive imaging and diagnostic services.

Novant Health Clemmons Medical Center’s three stories have 44,000 square feet and include an outpatient surgery center, a radiology imaging department and a fully staffed emergency department (ED). Everything about the medical center is state-of-the art, from building design to the most advanced technology in the industry – all built around the needs of the patient.

“We want everyone to feel like this is their medical center,” says Laura Myers, director of operations and nursing, “because they will have access to some of the most experienced doctors, nurses and multidisciplinary team members in the region, right here at home.”

“Our whole facility is patient centered and caregiver driven,” says Laura MacFadden, senior director of design and construction for Novant Health. “It’s strictly about what’s right for the patient and the caregiver.”

“Our staff can quickly assess and treat virtually any emergency a patient may walk in with,” says Nick Iannuzzi, M.D., the emergency department’s medical director and a partner at Forsyth Emergency Services, PA. Advanced Technology, Increased Convenience Novant Health Clemmons Medical Center is also bringing comprehensive imaging services close to home with its state-of-the-art imaging department. “The imaging services offered here are equal in quality and technical sophistication to the services offered at Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center,” says Pat York, BSRT, manager of radiology at both Novant Health Clemmons Medical Center and Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center. “There are very few communities that have this level of diagnostics outside of a major medical center.” Outstanding Surgical Services Currently, Novant Health Clemmons Medical Center has two state-ofthe-art operating rooms (ORs), with the capacity to expand to five ORs in the future. Each operating room is equipped with advanced technology, including 3D imaging, so surgeons can perform minimally invasive surgeries with the highest precision. “Anything you can get at the big medical centers we have available in Clemmons for the specialized surgeries we are doing,” says Vicki Clark, RN and nurse manager for surgical services. Clark brings 23 years of experience to Clemmons. The medical center offers a variety of surgeries – including general, orthopaedic, and foot and ankle – and is continuing to work with area physicians to expand service offerings.

VO I C E A Story About Addiction Part 2 By Wendee Goodman


ast month we met Stacie. Stacie is a giving, kind, hopeful and wildly courageous woman who was willing to share her story with the hope that it could be helpful to someone. Perhaps her story will help you in some unique way, or perhaps you or someone you love is struggling with an addiction. Regardless of your situation, I believe everyone has something they can learn from this story.

In the April edition of Forsyth Woman we learned that Stacie began drinking alcohol between her 8th and 9th grade of school, and that over the next ten years, Stacie married and divorced several times and eventually became engaged to a man that she expected to spend the rest of her life with. One month after their engagement, her fiance died suddenly and unexpectedly from a brain aneurism. Stacie began drinking alcohol in a new and very dangerous way – alone. The first stages of alcoholism Stacie said she went from being a heavy drinker into the first stages of alcoholism. She began by drinking a bottle of wine every night after work and when one bottle wasn’t enough she went to two bottles. She said she wanted to numb herself from the pain and hurt of losing the man she loved and what she called, “the wreckage of her past.”

Beautiful wine glasses Stacie was searching for a place of oblivion and her drinking quickly escalated, eventually to the large liter bottles of wine and then to boxes of wine. Stacie said there wasn’t anything pretty or elegant about it, there were no pretty long stem glasses – she was drinking out of 16 oz Styrofoam cups. After two years of drinking alcoholically, she met someone who didn’t want her to drink and with self-will alone, she didn’t drink for almost a year. However, she began to tire of life and decided she didn’t care if she continued the relationship with this man. She began wanting the ease and comfort she felt when drinking. She began to disappear from family and friend gatherings. She stopped going to school events. She became reclusive, giving up clubs and the bar scene, isolating herself and staying at home, drinking more and more and drinking alone. Stacie said she didn’t want to interact with anybody; she neglected herself and her children. In 2011, while planning her youngest son’s birthday party, she recalls thinking, “I really need to be sober for this.” She strategically stopped drinking the night before at midnight. When the party started she began feeling completely overwhelmed by all the children and responsibility. Her main thought was, “When can I leave and when can I go home and have a drink?” An angel? One child’s mother at the birthday party noticed that Stacie seemed overwhelmed and offered to help. She helped with the cake, presents and pizza. Stacie had never met her prior to the party, but this woman stepped in and began helping Stacie with the party. After the party, the mom introduced herself and said,“Today, I have been sober for 45 days.” She wrote down her name and number and said, “Call me any time.” No, I don’t have a problem! Stacie’s first thought was, “Why is this lady telling me this? I know I don’t smell like alcohol, I stopped drinking at midnight and took a shower!”

Healing doesn’t mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls our lives. (Author Unknown)

Stacie had heard about AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) but really knew nothing about it. Stacie said if you had asked some of my friends if I had a problem with alcohol, they would have said yes. If you had asked me if I had a problem, I would have said no. But that afternoon, a woman Stacie had never met offered her help without judgment or accusation, and this was the beginning of a new story for Stacie. Next month: As Stacie’s new story begins, there is another challenge to face and conquer.

The Blue Ridge Music Center a partnership between the National Park Service and the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation. Visitors can explore the outdoor amphitheater, visit the indoor interpretive center, picnic, and hike, all in the same location.

The foothills of North Carolina are alive and kicking with a strong musical heritage that is evident in today’s bluegrass, blues and Americana music. Whether you’re catching a local show like Possum Jenkins at Ziggy’s or enjoying some blues by Big Ron Hunter at Summer on Trade, the music you hear today has evolved from the deep musical roots that run through these hills. So if you and any of your girlfriends are music lovers and want to learn more about the rich history of music that hails from our own Appalachian Mountains, here is an outdoor trip to your heart’s delight. Grab the gals and head up to the Blue Ridge Music Center located just outside Galax, Virginia You and the gals can pack a picnic, learn more about the musical history of our area, hear some live music, and even take a hike. Celebrating the music and musicians of Appalachia, the Blue Ridge Music Center is a little known treasure in our region, and certainly reward enough for the drive up the mountain. The Blue Ridge Music Center was established in 1985 by Congress, and the site is jointly operated by

For the history buffs in your group, The Roots of American Music museum is a must. This museum traces the roots of American music back through the stories of local artists, as far back as influences from Europe and West Africa. For example, the European fiddle and the African banjo are two instruments still used today in bluegrass music. The museum also explores the influence oral histories sung through ballads, and the impact of religious music on the popular music of today. Don’t miss Mid-Day Mountain music where you and the gals can talk with real mountain musicians, learn about the craftsmanship of the instruments and hear their melodic mountain harmonies. The Blue Ridge Music Center also offers two popular hiking trails for those that want some extra exercise on your visit. The High Meadow Trail is an easy 1.35 mile one way trail, and the Fisher Peak Loop is a 2.24 mile loop. You and the gals can even make this a monthly reunion and continue to visit and attend concerts throughout the summer. Starting May 24th, the outdoor amphitheater kicks off a season of concerts on the mountain top. Special guests in June include well-known names such as Rosanne Cash and Grammy award

Saving Bambi Local Woman Educates Community on Wildlife Rehabilitation By Carolyn S. Peterson

How an Empty Nest Led to a Full Yard When animal lover Tammera Donovan found herself an ‘empty nester’ with a home surrounded by 10 acres of fenced-in land, she decided to get her wildlife rehabilitation permit, through a 12 week course at FTCC. “As a ‘permitted’ wildlife rehabber, I take in injured, kidnapped, orphaned or displaced fawns, usually a few days old, train them to bottle feed, then gather the plants that they eat as they grow, eventually releasing them into the wild when they are around 4 months old. Because they need to eat in the beginning every 3-4 hours, caring for them is a commitment of time and money, it is not a hobby and not something to be seen as a ‘family activity,’” said Tammera. Much of Tammera’s work wouldn’t be needed if people understood that, in most instances, the worst thing they can do is take the fawn from its surroundings.

What Can I Do for the Fawn that Its Mom Can’t Do? NOTHING!

care for other animals like squirrels, bunnies, opossums and birds.

One mistake that people make is that when they see a fawn alone, they assume that it is abandoned or in some need. Mother deer will leave their fawn for hours while they go off to feed nearby, so as not to draw predators to the vulnerable fawn when they see her. The mother returns and all is well, unless you step in to ‘help.’ “If at all possible, it’s best to leave the fawn alone because there’s a very good chance that it is not without a mother. Should the fawn be in danger, you can move it to a safer place, nearby. In the event that you have to take the fawn due to knowing that it is orphaned or in need of help, always contact a wildlife rehabber. You never take in wildlife as pets; not only is it against the law, they can carry disease. When the fawn is removed from its mother, it doesn’t develop a fear of predators or survival skills, it doesn’t learn what it can and cannot eat and getting the proper nutrition is hard due to rehabbed fawns require a special formula to bottle feed, never cow’s milk,” Tammera commented. This past year, Tammera took in 12 fawns for various reasons and prepared well over 3,000 bottles of formula! Of those 12, only 9 survived because it is very hard for a fawn to thrive in captivity and then be released into the wild. Of the nine that were released, Tammera expects only four to five will make it to one year old. Wildlife rehabbers like Tammera can also get a mammal permit to

If there is one message that Tammera would like people to know, it is that things happen in nature for a reason. “My main goal is to educate people to leave fawns alone so that their mothers can take care of them. It is very upsetting for rehabbers to take care of babies who have been kidnapped! As humans, we obviously cannot teach them what they need to be wild animals and people are not educated to know that their mothers leave them and eventually return for the fawn’s own protection,” Tammera stated. For more information on volunteering or donating, visit Should you need the services of a wildlife rehabber, you can call the hotline at 336- 785 0912. For information on permits, go to



here’s nothing sweeter than the picture of a newborn fawn, with its wobbly legs, trying to take its first steps with its mother watching close by. Because they seem so fragile and helpless, many times when people come upon baby deer nestled up in the woods, they assume that it is all alone, having been abandoned, injured or orphaned. Before you take it upon yourself to do what you think is ‘right,’ local wildlife rehabilitation expert Tammera Donovan wants you to know what really is the right thing to do.

Time By Lindsay Craven

veryone loves a good movie — the exhilarating surroundsound, the eye-opening crystal clear, super-large screens, the popcorn, soda and candy…If you’ve been too busy to check out some of the latest flicks, look to “Reel Time” to give you the good, the bad and the ugly! Send in your suggestion for movies to be reviewed, and you could win tickets to a current movie!


The Host (2 out of 5 reels) In theaters now. This is the film adaptation of Stephanie Meyer’s (author of Twilight) novel in which an alien race invades and takes over human bodies. The film follows Melanie (Saoirse Ronan), a member of the resistance who fights but ultimately succumbs to the invasion, and Wanderer/Wanda (also played by Ronan), the alien who takes up residence in her body. Melanie doesn’t go down without a fight though. Her conscience is able to stay intact and she convinces Wanderer to quit sharing her memories with the Seeker aliens who are trying to find Melanie’s fellow resisting family members. The Host is a great concept and translated much better in print than it does on film. The dual dialogue of Melanie’s conscience arguing with Wanderer comes across as a glimpse inside the mind of a teenager with multiple personalities. The love stories in the story are over simplified and add nothing to the tale, while the rest of the cast struggles to carry the film unsuccessfully. The Host might have been better suited as a television series where the relationships could have been explored deeper and the viewer could get more invested in the characters.

108 /

This Is 40 (3 out of 5 reels) Available at Redbox now. In this sort-of-sequel to Knocked Up, we revisit Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann), the lovable, angry couple providing the sound, yet hilarious, advice in the previous Judd Apatow creation. In This Is 40, Apatow focuses solely on the couple who are constantly teetering a tightrope between being madly in love and brutally murdering each other. The plot of the film focuses on the lead-up to Pete’s birthday. Debbie becomes convinced that they have to put more focus on making their lives more wholesome and complete, and Pete is pretty content with aging in a way that makes him happy and probably a few pounds heavier. Much like Apatow’s last film Funny People, this one has several laugh out loud moments and countless opportunities where you’ll feel like someone stepped into the middle of your life and started filming. Its failure is its unnecessarily long running time and inability to keep you invested in Pete and Debbie’s relationship. It’s definitely worth a watch for the funny moments but set aside a solid two hours and some patience to wade through the unnecessary side stories and angst. Bachelorette (1 out of 5 reels) Available on Netflix now. I suspect this film was an attempt to please the ladies who wanted to see their own version of pre-wedding debauchery caught on film like the guys got in The Hangover. Unfortunately Hollywood decided to give us a group of extremely talented actresses who waste their talents being profoundly unlikeable.

Regan (Kirsten Dunst), Becky (Rebel Wilson), Gena (Lizzy Caplan) and Katie (Isla Fisher) are all a close-knit group of friends that have been together since high school. When Becky tells Regan that she will be the first of them to head down the aisle, Regan immediately goes into meltdown mode because, well, she was supposed to be first and, well, Becky’s fat. The trio of prom queen has-beens must race the clock to fix a mistake caused by a night of illicit drug use and poor life choices before the bride finds out what horrible people they really are. Each of the actresses in this film have a strong body of work in their past but this film does none of them justice. Each character is so easy to hate it makes it difficult to resist the urge to press the stop button and end the train wreck. My tip…don’t fight that urge.

Cinco de Mayo Food Fiesta! By Emily Eileen Carter & Elisa Wallace

Americans have been known to steal holidays, or rather share them with other cultures (i.e., St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day). Since we are a melting pot, we can rightfully get away with these adopted traditions, and there is no shame in searching for an excuse to gather our family and friends, cook delicious food, and celebrate life. Cinco de Mayo is one such excuse. This year throw your own fiesta by creating these dishes and give your friends a reason to say muy delicioso.

Hope for the Unknown Path


few days ago, I went to Wal-Mart to look for a few thank you cards. As I perused each aisle looking for the appropriate title, I noticed that all of the encouragement cards were gone. It wasn’t just the usual two or three lone rangers that hadn’t been picked; it was completely bare. Even though I don’t frequent the card aisle daily, I have ventured through enough to know that this was an unusual occurrence. I am not sure why this made such a heavy impact on me in that moment, but I will say that there are hundreds of thousands of us that truly need the encouragement. In that moment I had a flashback to the phone conversation I had with one of my closest friends. Throughout all the years we have known each other we have made a habit of calling each other on Sunday so we could discuss the peak and pit of our week. On this particular day she shared with me several things that were on her heart. She was concerned if the job she had would hold throughout the economic crisis and whether she should take a leap of faith to pursue her own business. She was highly discouraged and felt as if she was between a rock and a hard place. It was challenging to consider the pros and cons of each, in addition to holding on to a rope that appeared to be ending. In days of old, the adage of tying a knot in the

rope and sitting would apply nicely to this scenario. However, what about those that don’t have the strength to tie a knot at the end? I want to encourage all the ladies who may not be working the job of their dreams but still managing to get it all done, the ladies who have concerns about their children and what the future will hold for them, and the ladies who have worked hard all of their life and just need a break. I want to encourage you to keep looking through the window of opportunity until it presents a door for you to walk through. Many of us have been waiting on a “sign,” or simply an answer to the bumps that fixate themselves between us and our positive outcome, but the key is faith:

believing in something that is unseen. This road will take you as far as you want to go. The beauty of it all is that you hold the keys the entire way! In my friend’s case, this was the main course of our chat. Either way we looked at the situation she was faced with, the fork in the road seemed to be a journey of faith. Both of us left the conversation that evening knowing that it can be exciting to allow ourselves to stretch beyond reason and hold on or move through the circumstances of life with faith as our anchor. In reality, it’s really not about holding on to the rope at all or how many knots you can tie at the end; it’s about letting go completely.

PC ks, L o o r nB Susa


kay, yes, I watch The Dog Whisperer and my dogs watch it, too! It might be a bit of an addiction for me; the dogs can take Caesar or leave him. My dogs do seem to respond favorably to the program’s effect on me and my efforts to be calm and assertive.

Dog training and growing people are always works in progress. The Whisperer’s three lessons for training seem helpful to both dog and owner. They seem helpful for parents, marriage partners – good for all sorts of relationships. They also have a strong component of “self care” in them, which is something we counselors are always urging for our clients and that we try to model ourselves. Caesar’s by-words are exercise . . . discipline . . . affection, usually in that order. As an example, consider your own life. After a busy and possibly stressful day at work, exercise can shift your gears, moving you into a more peaceful evening. Self-discipline is a component of building self-esteem. And, according to principles of mental health, we all need affection, specifically three hugs a day, to maintain a healthy mental status. Exercise is one of those tricky behavioral issues. You have to actually do it before you can see the positive effect that it has on your body and mind. With the rush of daily life, it is so easy to rationalize, “I’m just too busy and/or too tired to exercise.”

Caesar’s favorite exercise, by the way, is walking. What a perfect time of year it is to try this out. Early mornings are full of fresh air and the sound of birds’ infectious singing. When practiced at day’s end, exercise allows you to let go of the day’s stress and tension. Again, walking, in addition to being excellent exercise, can have a meditative quality; nature provides quite a show to keep your mind focused on the present. After a sample of exercise, pay attention to how your body and your mind feel. If you do this for 2 weeks, you will notice a difference. We all know that discipline is essential for children’s development. Structure, guidance, expectations and consequences are concepts parents know well. Have you also thought about your own need for “inner discipline,” providing structure and boundaries with your time and your energy and then consistently following through? These are truly the building blocks of healthy self-esteem. Giving and receiving affection may be readily available to you through family and friends. It may be a part of family life that we take for granted; if that is true for you, imagine if it were gone! For some, affection might be the most difficult of these practices to achieve. For those who live alone, who do not have family close by or who might be socially isolated, we have to be intentional about this one. Seek out safe and caring people for hugs; ask a close friend if she would like a neck rub (benefits the one giving as well as the one receiving); give yourself a hug. And we are back to dogs again. They offer unconditional regard and affection in the form of wags, sitting on laps and licks. The endorphin exchange we have with pets is real and effective in lifting our mood. Exercise, discipline and affection: may they help you remain calm and assertive!

Katherine Bowman Katherine Bowman recently joined The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County as director of marketing. Prior to accepting the position with The Arts Council, she was the associate director of Believe in Bristol, a certified Main Street program in Bristol. Much of Katherine’s work for The Arts Council will be focused in three key areas: first, she will market the arts as a vehicle for enhancing economic development and job creation; second, she will work closely with educators to make sure the arts are part of every child’s education; and third, Katherine will promote the vibrancy that continues to emerge from the incredible arts events and organizations in downtown Winston-Salem. A native of Winston-Salem and graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Katherine has spent her professional life working in the non-profit sector. While at Believe in Bristol, she worked with downtown merchants, artists, city officials and downtown stakeholders to organize, market and brand downtown Bristol as a state-recognized Arts and Entertainment District. Her most recent accomplishments included a highly successful collaborative effort with the Virginia Tourism Corporation for the creation and placement of a LOVE sculpture in the heart of downtown that celebrates Bristol as the Birthplace of Country Music and promotes the Virginia is for Lovers campaign. “Katherine has a strong passion for the arts and will spearhead our marketing efforts in concert with our funded member arts organizations to further promote and enhance Winston-Salem’s reputation as the City of Arts and Innovation,” Arts Council president and CEO Milton Rhodes said.

Dr. Susan Pauly Salem Academy and College President Dr. Susan Pauly was honored with a Women of Achievement Award from the General Federation of Women’s Clubs of North Carolina (GFWC-NC). Dr. Pauly received the award during a banquet at the GFWC-NC’s annual state conference on April 18 in Winston-Salem. The Women of Achievement Award recognizes outstanding women for their significant contributions to the state of North Carolina. Dr. Pauly has served as Salem Academy and College President since 2006. During her tenure, she has led Salem through a period of significant growth, with back-to-back years of historically large incoming firstyear classes at the College, the construction of a new student center on campus, and the purchase of land that will allow the campus to expand with new academic buildings and residence halls. In addition to her work at Salem, Dr. Pauly is active in the community, serving as a member of the WinstonSalem Chamber Executive Committee, the WinstonSalem Alliance, the Downtown Rotary Club, the Forsyth Medical Foundation Board of Directors, the United Way Board of Directors, and the Advisory Boards for the Center for Design Innovation and the Piedmont Triad Research Park. Before coming to Salem, Dr. Pauly served as the vice president for academic affairs and dean of the college at Mount Mercy College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. A graduate of an all-girls secondary school, Dr. Pauly earned her undergraduate degree in secondary education/English at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. After teaching in Costa Rica, she returned to the United States and earned her master’s and Ph.D. in English at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville.

Angie Bailey

Rita Bunch

After joining the Ohio based direct sales company Thirty-One Gifts in 2007, Angie Hall Bailey certainly wasn’t looking for a new career; she just wanted a new bag! She very quickly learned it was more than just bags. Within 8 months of signing up to become a Sales Consultant, she was promoted to a Director. After attending Thirty-One’s National Conference in 2010 and witnessing the magnitude associated with ThirtyOne Gifts, Angie gained the momentum that was needed to really move forward with her business. She has earned the honor of serving on Thirty-One’s Leadership Council for 3 years. And in 2011, she was awarded the title of “Top Bonus Earner,” sharing that title with only 9 others nationally. With there only being 120 in the nation out of nearly 100,000 consultants, Angie was promoted to Senior Executive Director in 2012, which is only one level away from the company’s top title, National Executive Director. Angie is continuously inspired by all of her directors, consultants and the everchanging products Thirty-One offers. Angie calls Davie County home, along with her husband and their 2 children.

Her background also includes serving as Executive Director of Medical and Risk Services, Privacy Official, and Director of Quality and Accreditation at other health systems.

“ Boss


AnitaDeanArnette ho is that lady? Who is she? The Boss Lady is a mother, a grandmother, a radio personality and, most recently, she became a wife. Marrying Minister Jerry Arnette, the two wed on September 29, 2012. On January 23, 2011, Anita was wrapping up her Sunday morning gospel show, “Praise Is What I Do,” by giving away circus tickets to her loyal listeners. The show had ended and Anita was about to exit the building when the phone rang and she decided to take one more call. The caller said “I really enjoy your show; I have been a loyal listener for three years.” The conversation continued with small talk, and suddenly the listener asked, “Are you married?” The listener was amazed to find out that she was a single lady. Anita gathered the information needed to acquire the tickets, and this is where the story begins. The circus tickets were mailed. One week later, Minister Arnette called to say he never received the tickets; Boss Lady apologized because the circus was gone, so she promised Minister Arnette tickets to the next upcoming event. True to her word, the Harlem Globetrotters came to town and she mailed him the tickets. Two weeks later there was a live remote for a local restaurant in Greensboro, over one hundred loyal listeners showed up to support the event. In the crowd there was one distinctive gentleman who stood out; to her surprise she discovered this was Minister Arnette. He turned out to be the total package, tall, dark, handsome and HE LOVED THE LORD. The day ended with them getting acquainted and making plans to have dinner. Several weeks went by and their relationship grew. Both talked about what their expectations and dreams were, but then Minister Arnette disclosed that he had been newly divorced and was not ready for a relationship. Anita thought to herself, that she wasn’t either. Several weeks later, a call came from Minister Arnette and he explained he missed the conversation and companionship they had begun to form. Fast forward five months later, and Anita was a special guest at the Anniversary of the Renaissance Choir and on the night of the

118 /

Anniversary Celebration, there was special recognition to Anita for the years of service and devotion to the choir. Anita was sitting in the audience when they asked Minister Arnette to come help with the presentation. She had no idea he was about to propose to her. Minister Arnette took the microphone and told the audience of about eight hundred people waiting for the concert that he had found the woman of his dreams; he then kneeled down on one knee and asked the “Boss Lady” to be his wife. The crowd began to praise God for this blessed moment. This has become another ministry for Anita “Boss Lady” Dean Arnette. She shares her miracle story of the union God blessed her with. Mrs. Arnette has been in radio for over 30 years, and her list of trophies and accomplishments speak for themselves. Mrs. Arnette has been known well in the community for hosting her gospel radio show on Sunday mornings on 1340/1400 “The Light.” Most recently the “The Light” has expanded its horizons by adding the FM station of 103.5 every day from 12 Noon until 2 pm, when Mrs. Arnette hosts the Mid-Day Gospel Praise Show live. The show complements old classic gospel music and then transitions into the gospel music of today. Calls flood the board daily during the ”MidDay Gospel Praise Show” as the listeners call in to make their old school gospel request. A glowing soul, Mrs. Arnette touches the lives of many ages; a devoted servant, Mrs. Arnette views her show as her ministry. Many voices have become long –time supporters of every aspect of what Mrs. Arnette does for her ministry, church and community. The newly wed Mrs. Anita Dean Arnette exemplifies the picture of a faithful and loyal woman of God. She is excited about what God has done in her life and how He has blessed her. She encourages her audience to “wait on God” because He knows what you need, when you need it. We just have to wait. Everything happens in HIS TIME.

Eric Clapton


ello, old friend… is how Eric Clapton greeted us at a recent concert in Charlotte. I understand that this guitar musician legend is not a local musician, but please indulge me while I review my favorite musician of all time. It is, after all, this concert that marked the beginning of the celebration of the 60th anniversary of my birth! Whenever you plan to go to hear an old rocker in concert, you wonder if the voice will still be there. Well, Eric Clapton is still as much the earthy, bluesy singer he ever was. His guitar runs are better than ever, as if all the years of practice have helped him improve. He had all the energy he always did (although he is a rather cool one onstage). He looks marvelous for a sixty-eight year old (he really looks great for a 58 year old). He 120 /

still has the same music geek quality (dark rimmed glasses, not skin tight jeans and a nice shirt, not a t-shirt) that has drawn hearts towards him for decades. Eric Clapton’s music is still diverse: ranging from the Cream classic Sunshine of Your Love to rock hits like Cocaine and Crossroads. Sprinkled in the mix are the wonderful reggae inspired I Shot the Sherriff and soulful ballads like Tears from Heaven and Wonderful Tonight from the Slowhand album. Clapton’s heart and soul rests firmly in blues and really always has, even when he was making money doing rock and roll. His concert tribute to the classic blues music of the 1920s and 30s was his rendition of Nobody Knows You (When You are Down and Out) and Goodnight, Irene, the Huddie Ledbetter classic.

As diverse as the music selection was, the audience was even more eclectic. To our right and in front of us were two groups of very awestruck teenagers, who were enthralled over the humility of his stage presence and the craftsmanship of his guitar playing. The women in front and to our right were middle-aged, star struck “groupies” who recorded the whole concert on video. The people to my left had been to see him at least a dozen times and the guy beyond them looked like he just rolled out of the VW Microbus that took him to first see Clapton at Woodstock. We all shared a kinship of respect for this incredibly gifted musician, soulful blues artist and talented song-writer. It gave us a common bond and all was at peace in the world. Or at least, everything was truly, Wonderful Tonight.

Our may Face Spotlight: Ginni Baker said she couldn’t “catch a break.” Her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2010 and passed away February 28, 2011, at 59. Her sister was diagnosed on June 1, 2012, at 29. “For me, it was really hard because I had a young child and my mom was sick and I didn’t know anyone else who had gone through it,” Baker said. Baker said her mother never liked going to the doctor. “My mom hadn’t had a mammogram in 8 years,” Baker said. “That’s kind of the importance of preventative care.” Her sister had felt a sore spot on her breast and got it checked at an annual physical, Baker said. She said her sister had a mammogram and then was sent for an ultrasound and biopsy. The next day, she was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer. “It was kind of overwhelming for all of us,” Baker said. “It had been not a year and a half.” Baker is now serving as a co-survivor Face of Davie County for Susan G. Komen Northwest NC. Baker said she hopes to serve as an outlet and resource for others whose friends and families are suffering from breast cancer. “I have a different perspective because everybody has their own experience, and when you’re going through something like that it’s kind of hard to appreciate what others around you are feeling,” Baker said. “My position is unique and I think it’s important that there’s an outlet.” 124 /

Genni Baker

In addition to providing help and advice to friends and family members of those going through breast cancer, Baker also hopes to use her position to raise awareness for early detection and preventative treatment practices, especially in young people. “I’m totally of the mindset that you shouldn’t put a price on your health,” Baker said. She said since her sister’s and mother’s ordeals, she has been performing monthly self-examinations and got her first annual mammogram on April 1.

Baker said she became worried that there was a genetic component after discovering two women in her family had been diagnosed with breast cancer. Her sister did not test positive for the known genes that indicate a genetic propensity for breast cancer. However, she still stresses any treatments or care that would help lead to an earlier diagnosis. “I have two daughters. My older sister has two daughters,” Baker said. Though Baker herself has not experienced breast cancer firsthand, she said her experiences with her mother and sister will help her reach out to people in the Northwest NC community who have not yet been affected by breast cancer. “Survivors can relate well to other survivors, and I think that people who haven’t been affected by breast cancer may not want to hear about it. I can relate to survivors by having that perspective of ‘this happened in my world,’” Baker said.

By Raven The following morning, I was tacked up and escorted to the warm-up area where Heinrich awaited me, looking bleary-eyed and smelling of unfiltered Dunhills. I immediately noticed that all the horses around me were bigger, stronger and faster than yours truly. I was way out of my league and looked like a pony who had mistakenly gotten penned in with Clydesdales. A lesser horse might have despaired, but I was an optimist at heart back then and figured I’d roll with it. Soon, hordes of “beautiful people” flooded in with picnic baskets, cameras and dogs, heading for the large tent and bleachers near the splash pond. This was a bigger event than I had thought and I had just decided I might be getting a stomach bug when Heinrich assisted me to the starting line with a sharp smack of the crop. I heard the announcer say, “Now starting, Heinrich Versagen on…well, we’ve got a horse switch here…oh, yes, here we go – Heinrich Versagen on… Raven.” And with a crack of the starter pistol, we were off. As the crowd tittered, I ran like the wind toward the first set of jumps. I scrambled over the logs just fine, but I got hedge-rash on my belly from barely clearing the boxwoods. Then there was a small pond to run through with a gargantuan wooden turtle in the middle of it for me to leap over. We next headed through the trees and over a set of stairs, then up a hill over some wine barrels, and across a creek. At this point, I was exhausted, but Heinrich maniacally urged me forward.

I would rather eat flowers than jump over them. Dear Fans and Friends, Many years ago, I lived at a barn with high-dollar equines who competed in the sport of cross-country, flying over land and through water obstacles. I was the “mutt” of the barn and was mostly used for pony rides by the daughter of the owner, a German fellow named Heinrich with an annoying pack-a-day smoking habit. One day, through a series of eye-rolling mishaps, I was led to the house and loaded onto a trailer. I settled in for a field trip and six hours later, we arrived at the most lush farm and barn I had ever seen. Gorgeous horses were everywhere, and the accommodations were fit for kings. Just as I was placed into my luxurious stall, I heard Heinrich’s voice talking to a groom as he walked down the aisle. He stopped in front of my stall and peered in with a smile that quickly melted. He looked at me, rubbed his eyes, and looked again. He then exploded into a fit of rage, jabbering at the groom in German until the poor sap fled. While I wasn’t a native German speaker, there was a Hanoverian in the stall next to me who translated. It seemed we were at an elite cross-country show, and I had mistakenly been brought instead of Heinrich’s prized steed, Dormand. It was too late to get Dormand there, and if Heinrich withdrew, he would ruin his whole season.

At the bottom of the next hill, I could see the tent, bleachers and large splash pond and was relieved we were finally reaching the end of the line. But I soon discerned that I was going to have to jump over a box of tulips and down three feet into the shallow pool below. My short, tired legs could take no more, and while I generally consider myself a brave soul, my courage fled me and I stopped to a dead halt. Predictably, Heinrich somersaulted over my head and hurtled down into the water with a large splash. A hush came over the crowd and the medics rushed forward as I peered through the greenery of the tulips. I could see Heinrich floating face up in the shallow pond, cursing my name and the names of all of my ancestors. It was too bad, really, that the rules required him to be on a horse to clear the jump because he did it so elegantly without me. On the ride home I began mentally getting my affairs in order, as I anticipated a change of address soon. Once back at the farm, I told Dormand all about the mix-up and the events of the day. To his credit, he took no offense and congratulated me for dumping ol’ nicotine teeth into the pool. He then guffawed until he farted and spooked himself. The next morning, Heinrich came down to my stall and glared over the gate, narrowing his unbandaged eye at me. I knew I had not acquitted myself with the competence and proficiency of Dormand, but it was, after all, my first cross-country show, and I had done my best. Nevertheless, I tried to look suitably penitent until he hobbled away. Thus ended my brief career as a cross-country horse.

Love from the pasture,

1. WhatbroughtyoutoRacefortheCure? “I started with the local affiliate as a board member soon after I learned a friend was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her diagnosis was my calling to make a difference in the lives of others - not just those with breast cancer, but helping educate women about the importance of trusting their intuition and getting to know their bodies. When the job of Executive Director opened up, I jumped on it. It is the perfect fit for me, combining my passion with a paycheck. I want to get all in the 11 counties we serve to understand our local impact and how they truly make a difference. If they walk with us and fundraise, they help educate so many and may even save a life!”

2. Whatadvicewouldyougivetoyoungerwomen? “Know your body. That is the most important thing - take care of yourself and trust your instincts. Most women are good at recognizing when something is wrong, and women are great at taking action. Don’t second guess yourself if you suspect something is wrong – persist and get help!”

TheLastWord With

Diana Parrish Kelly Melang always gets the last word with the Women of Winston!

3. Whatisyourgreatestobstacleinyourworldtravelsasawoman? “Getting others to understand that if we all came together for a cause we believe in, we would be more impactful. Collaboration is very powerful. We shouldn’t fear it, we should embrace it. The impact will be endless because power is in numbers.”

4. Whatsetsyouapartfromotherwomen? “I think my determination and passion, I don’t always take no for an answer. Plus, I am very creative, I typically think outside the box and am a proponent of change. I’ve never been known to do things the conventional way, or if I do, I’ll always add a twist.”

5. Wheredoyouseewomeninleadershippositionsinfiveyears? “I would love to see all of our Komen affiliates in North Carolina tied together. The good news is that we are meeting quarterly and heading in this direction. Along with the statewide collaboration, the Komen affiliates could begin to partner with other non-profits with similar missions. Too many times people worry that charities partnering limits the money raised from one single pot. I think we can all work together and make a united voice a stronger voice, raising more awareness and money for everyone.”

6. IfyoucouldnominatealocalwomanforPresident,whowoulditbe? Dr. Dean Clifford, former Executive Director of Smart Start of Forsyth County. She is a brilliant woman who actively listens, processes the information, and then effectively conveys the message so there is much buy-in from key individuals, organizations, etc.”

7. Howdoyoudefineyourlegacy? “Through her energy and vision she helped create positive change that impacted and motivated many.”

8. Whatisyourguiltypleasure? “Hanging with my core group of girlfriends. We get together locally to do all kinds of things which often, ok, usually always, includes wine and good food. We go on trips and have made it clear that what happens there, well, it stays there. We are very lucky to have accommodating husbands who often are involved with our outings.”

May is a month where many think of the Susan G. Komen organization and the thousands of runners/survivors/friends/family of the Race For The Cure. The Last Word caught up with Diana JC Parrish, working hard on the Race for The Cure along with celebrating the New Name… New Impact of the organization - Susan G. Komen Northwest, NC-helping them make a an impact on 11 Counties in Northwest North Carolina.
