Well, we did it! We survived what will certainly be one of the most memorable days of our lives! Brooke and Chris' wedding was amazing – simply amazing! We couldn’t be happier with the event and all the hard work from so many great professionals. Our wedding planners, Jennie and Kristin of The Perfect Pair, outdid themselves, especially when they had to launch Plan B minutes before the ceremony started when everything – including decorations, furniture and guests – had to be moved indoors because of rain! But, it was a great day and the newlyweds are settling into married life very nicely! Speaking of weddings, we just co-hosted our first bridal show with BB&T Ballpark and it was a HUGE success! We had 140 guests representing 55 weddings at our show, and they had the opportunity to meet some truly amazing vendors and wedding professionals. We are thrilled with the outcome of the day and will be making some decisions soon about a 2nd bridal show! Stay tuned and if you or someone you know gets engaged, be sure to follow our Facebook page, to stay up to date on our magazine and upcoming events. After that whirlwind of an October, here we are in November! How did November get here so quickly? It’s time for our Fall Consignment Shop Hop on November 3rd and if you haven’t signed up yet, you’d better hurry! We already have one bus full and by the time this issue hits the printer, Bus 2 will be on its way to capacity. If you need more information, please contact our Project Manager, Denise Heidel and she’ll be happy to help! Denise can be reached by phone (413.7610) or email ( Be sure to check out this month’s cover story! It’s about a new retail store that you simply MUST check out! They have some AMAZING stuff, and you’ll love Cheri and Justin! What a fun couple and when it comes to finding the best of the best in great market samples, let’s just say that their shop is well worth the visit! As always, be sure to let our advertisers know that you saw them in our magazines. We depend on them each month in order to remain a free resource to the community! Let them know their advertising dollars are well spent! And a great big thank you to YOU! We know from talking to so many of you during our various events that we have incredibly loyal readers! THANK YOU for making the Forsyth Magazine family a growing success in our community! We love what we do and we love being a part of Forsyth County!

Dear Friends and Supporters, I am running for the position of Forsyth County District Court Judge because I am ready to serve my community using the knowledge, skill and experience that I have acquired during my 13 year legal career to make fair and unbiased decisions regarding cases that come before me. I will follow the law and listen carefully to the facts in all cases. I obtained enormous community support in 2008, when I ran against the incumbent and received more than 54,000 votes. My work history shows that I have assisted hundreds of women, men and children, helping families with their legal needs, so that their lives are safer and happier. It was due to community support and the encouragement from various members of the bench, fellow attorneys and community leaders that I decided to run again in this election. Perhaps it is because I have more to say about my background, as far as what qualifies me to be a judge, than to talk about whether or not I was in scouts, played sports in school or have volunteered my time and services to the community, though I have done all of those things. What I have to say is that I have the experience needed for the job and that I am the candidate that has handled the types of cases and issues that a District Court Judge renders decisions about.

I am a patriot, and while I did not serve in the US Armed Forces, both of my grandfathers served in the US Army in World War II, my uncles served in the Navy and Marines, and my cousins served in the Air Force. I strive to be a good citizen, neighbor and mother, and I feel blessed to have had valuable life experiences that will help me be a good judge. I am happy for any endorsements that I have or may receive and congratulate my opponent for any that he has or may receive in this campaign. But I am not going to purposefully try to use my gain to the detriment of others. I have chosen to run my campaign with a focus on experience and the fact that it matters. I am not going to make negative implications regarding my opponentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation or character, as I think that judicial candidates should conduct themselves in a manner better than that. Therefore, I will continue to take the high road, as I did in 2008. Thank you, friends, for your encouragement and support in this campaign, and I appreciate your vote in 2012! Sincerely, Amy Allred Candidate for Forsyth County District Court Judge

Can Cataracts Be Prevented? I often get asked this question in clinic. As we age, we all form cataracts, and age related cataracts are the leading cause of blindness today. Currently, the only treatment is cataract surgery, where the cataract is removed and replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL). The good news is that success for cataract surgery is very high when done by an experienced surgeon, and most patients end up seeing much better after surgery. The exact cause of cataracts is unknown, but it is thought that oxidative stress damages certain enzymes and proteins in the eye's natural lens, which causes the lens to become cloudy. Oxidative stress results when there is an imbalance between free radicals roaming the body and the antioxidants that keep them in check. In the eye, oxidation affects the proteins, resulting in a damaged and cloudy lens. Preventing free radical damage may help slow down this process. Free radicals that damage your eyes usually result from eating unhealthy foods, exposure to pollution or chemicals, smoking, and ultraviolet radiation. If you follow a diet that includes colorful fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, you can decrease the risk of cataracts at an earlier age. Antioxidant vitamins and phytochemicals found in fruit and vegetables help with this. Eating large amounts of fish, which is high in omega-3 fatty acids, has been also been shown to help.

Salem Skin & Vein Specialists

Several studies support these claims. Researchers in Australia found that a diet high in carbohydrates may increase cataract risk1, while a large study of adult women in Iowa, Wisconsin and Oregon found eating foods rich in a variety of vitamins and minerals may help delay the development of cataracts.2 Another study, from the researchers of Harvard Medical School, found that higher dietary intake of lutein, zeaxanthin, and vitamin E from food and supplements were associated with significantly decreased risks of developing cataracts.3 A healthy diet includes five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables every day, at least three servings of 100 percent whole grains each day, and two servings of fish each week. The total calories consumed should be just enough to keep you at a healthy weight, based on your individual activity level and metabolism. Dark green and colorful fruits and vegetables are great sources of eye-friendly antioxidants. They also contain folic acid and calcium â&#x20AC;&#x201D; important nutrients which also may help reduce the risk of cataracts and should be included in a healthy diet. To maintain a healthy diet, it is equally important to avoid fried foods, processed foods and sugary snacks and soft drinks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all of which appear to be associated with an increased risk of cataracts, as well as obesity and other health problems. Reducing sodium in your diet also is a good idea, as researchers at the University of Sydney (Australia) have found evidence that high salt intake may increase your risk for cataracts. Once you get used to eating delicious fruits and vegetables, fresh fish and other healthy foods, you won't miss junk food. And your reward just might be both a healthy body and a lifetime of excellent vision. Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Science, June 2010.

Break from the Ordinary & Be Pampered at Textures Salon & Gifts By Kristi Johnson Marion

he newest salon in Lewisville, Textures Salon & Gifts, at 6655 Shallowford Road, is a sight to behold. Textures owner Diana Mitchell and her husband, Mike, have transformed the space into an inviting place to relax and be pampered. "I wanted to create a homey, comfortable atmosphere," said Diana, as she explained her vision for the new salon. She succeeded. The location has undergone quite a transformation since the couple acquired it early this year. Unlike most strip mall hair salons, Textures has the look and feel of a home, with stonework, wood floors, and rich colors and artwork on the walls. "None of this would have happened without my husband, Mike," said Diana. "He has built, painted and helped me shop for things."


Clients can enjoy a cup of coffee on the porch and watch for the deer that often graze in the meadow beside the salon. Those receiving a hair service at Textures can also be pampered with a complimentary hand paraffin dip treatment and a glass of wine. Another unique offering is that the salon also houses a gift boutique, offering jewelry, scarves, home accessories, and "rewined" soy-based candles, contained in re-purposed wine bottles, as well as gifts for men. While getting the new location ready

these many months, Diana and her staff worked at Dave Tyler's Barbershop on Country Club Road. "He was great to let us and all of our clients descend on his barber shop." Her staff now consists of two receptionists, including Diana's mom, Betty Barker, and Morgan Buckley; two hair dressers, Sharon Barrett and Becky Vicens; and a nail technician, Marcy Hendren Serge. "Becky and Sharon helped with the planning of the new salon and helped choose the warm palette of paint colors that help create its warm atmosphere," said Diana. "The salon is accepting inquiries for their two available chairs." Diana has nearly 30 years of experience in hair design. Her staff has trained with Aveda, Matrix, and Paul Mitchell. Not being tied to one product line, Textures is free to offer a variety of the best and most innovative hair products available,

including Kenra and the Pravana line Nevo, which is a new "green" line of vegan shampoos and conditioners in biodegradable bottles, and even pet grooming products. More activity is to come, as WFUBMC completes their 10,000 square foot Lewisville Family Practice location across the street. "We're excited about it. Lewisville is a quaint, but growing community," said Diana. The Textures Open House is scheduled for November 10, 2012, from 1:00-5:00 p.m., and will include live music, refreshments and door prizes, and will showcase area businesses, such as Lewisville Laser & Esthetics.

T HANKS -L IVING By Dr. Debbie Lanier Remember when we were kids? Thanksgiving functioned as the faithful reminder that Christmas was delightfully near. The November holiday pushed the calendar closer to the REAL holiday. You know, the one with lots of presents! Don’t get me wrong. Thanksgiving wasn’t entirely unnecessary. We did eat ourselves into oblivion. Besides, think of all the fun we had strolling through the larger-than-life Sears and Roebuck Christmas catalog. Was there ANYTHING we didn’t put on our list? Oh, the excitement and naiveté of children. It’s amazing what age and experience teach us, isn’t it? The November holiday that seemed so boring and old-fashioned compared to the sparkle and splendor of Christmas has now actually stolen my heart. It’s no longer the required precursor to Christmas; rather, it’s a reflective season unencumbered by the strains of stressful shopping and demanding schedules. It’s no longer simply about one day called Thanksgiving; it’s actually about a way of life called Thanks-living. Oh, I know, I know. When you look across the landscape of your present situation, things aren’t exactly as you planned or imagined. Let’s face it; our journey has not followed the script our dreams so vividly choreographed. For some of us, life has dealt such lethal blows that we wonder how we’re left standing. Let’s be honest, ok? When life doesn’t seem fair, it’s easy to get angry with God – I mean REALLY angry. The rage inside us has to go somewhere, right? Besides, isn’t God supposed to take care of us? I thought that was part of His job description! We’re irritated that God doesn’t give us what we want. We’re even more offended that He doesn’t give us what we’re convinced we need. It just doesn’t seem fair! Perhaps we can believe God loves us, but for the life of us, sometimes it’s hard to conceive that He actually likes us. Either God doesn’t like me or He’s just not that reliable. Which is it? The frustration and disillusionment mount as we contemplate all the ways God is not doing things the way we think He should. After all, He owes us that much, right? Our feelings can become destructive when our view gets clouded. Let’s think about it for a moment. What DOES God owe us? When I allow myself to seriously contemplate this question, I choke on my coffee. The whole idea that this God who has so generously provided all we are and everything we have somehow owes us? It’s simply outrageous! The more I ponder the issue, the more I laugh at the notion. The reality is that I’ve been the selfish beneficiary in this love relationship. I’ve enjoyed God’s extravagant blessings so excessively that I have forgotten they were gifts. Have I overlooked the fact that even the breath I exhale at this moment is provided by His lavish love? It’s like I’ve taken on an entitlement mentality toward a compassionate God who has already given far more than I deserve. I keep expecting Him to do what I want while avoiding any expectation God may have for me.

Friends, if we are going to improve the scenery of our lives, the first thing we must do is change the way we see it. When we begin to view life through the lens of gratitude, joy inevitably ensues. This joy-filled perspective begins to heal the wounds and callouses of our hearts. It illuminates our future with hope and confidence. Can God be counted on? Start counting your blessings. Now consider that EVERY good thing in your life comes from God, the One who loves you AND likes you. Never let the things you want cause you to forget the things you already have. Let us determine together to live a life of gratitude. When we do, every day becomes Thanksgiving. Eventually, this daily perspective can even create a beautiful life called Thanks-living! For comments or prayer, contact Dr. Lanier at


When we realize that God is not indebted to us, it is we who are indebted to Him, every moment and every good thing in our lives becomes a gift! That’s why it’s vital to consider all the ways God has been compassionate to us just this week, just this day, just this hour. When we do, we quickly become acutely aware that God likes us every bit as much as He loves us. He draws near to us with generous gifts even when we pull away with those gifts in hand, completely ignoring the Giver.

Scarf 101 By Charlotte Parris – Mainstream Boutique ccessories are an important part of a woman’s wardrobe and can bring an immediate change to any ensemble. One of the most popular and inexpensive ways to spruce up a look is with a scarf. Scarves can be made of many materials and add energy and spice to any outfit.


There are several online tutorials on the many different ways to tie a scarf. Study a few and become an expert. YouTube has a great video titled “Twenty-five Ways to Tie a Scarf” that can make anyone an expert on scarf tying. Scarves can be worn during every season, but they are especially cozy during the winter. Winter scarves are warm, comfortable and trendy. A scarf can either complement or totally transform a look. A recent addition to the world of scarves is the scarf charm which instantly turns a scarf into a piece of jewelry. The following are the main trends in scarves for this winter: 1 – Snoods – This tubular wrap is fashionable, luxurious and flattering to all body types. Use brighter colors to freshen an outfit and pastel colors for a touch of elegance. Snoods can be worn around your neck or as headwear. 2 – Fur – Warm and chic and quite a hit for winter 2012. Depending on personal preference, some are actual animal fur, but there are beautiful fake or artificial fur scarves available. These can be worn with anything from jeans for a dress down look, to an evening

22 /

gown for a sophisticated look. 3 – Knit – Versatile and always in style, knit scarves have been in the fashion world for a long time. You can easily wear this material over or under a coat. Some of the knit scarves have become edgy with “nail” or “stud” embellishment. These work particularly well with scarf charms. 4 – Longer Lengths – These can be styled with fringe or lace, or stay plain. Take with you on a chilly night for use as a lightweight shawl or wrap, or put around your waist to wear as a skirt with leggings. 5 – Colorful – The trend for this fall seem to be either very dark or very light. Dark brown, charcoal, or black are neutral and multi-functional. Lighter colors include tangerine (color of 2012), pale green, light blue and aqua, and can bring to life any neutral ensemble. 6 – Printed and Embroidered – These work well with silk, leather or wool clothing in solid colors. Use your imagination and bring your wardrobe up-to-date with each of these types of scarves! You can drop by Mainstream Boutique and shop our unique scarf collection at 110 Oakwood Drive (across from the Thruway Shopping Center). We would love to help you find the perfect scarf for your fall wardrobe. See www.winstonsalem. for more information!

Wisdom Through the Ages By Denise Heidel


hey say that wisdom comes with age and don’t I know how true that is! I really believe we have to experience certain truths for ourselves before we can ever truly understand how meaningful they are. As another birthday approaches, I decided to take stock on a few valuable life lessons I’ve finally come to understand.

• Some people will never realize how loud they are when they talk.

• There will always be someone who doesn’t like you, and you’ll never understand why.

• Some people will never understand that socks with sandals are really tacky.

• You don’t have to like everyone, but you’d better learn to get along with everyone.

• Women are not the moodier of the sexes…

• Some people will never understand the concept of personal space.

• Women are credited for nagging, but many, many men are quite skilled at it, too.


800-422-8711 *Monthly payments required. LASIK has risks and benefits. Potential risks are severe dry eyes; possible need for glasses or contact lenses after surgery; visual symptoms including halos, glare, starburst and double vision; and the loss of vision.

24 /

• Walking away isn’t necessarily a sign of weakness.

• Sick and personal days aren’t supposed to be used when you work in Corporate America…they’re more like decoration for your paycheck.

• Taking the high road is very often a hard climb, but the view is usually magnificent.

• I completely understand what my mother meant when she used to say, “Just wait until you have kids of your own.”

• There’s an art to standing up for yourself without coming across as argumentative.

• Some battles aren’t worth fighting.

• If I wear white, I will spill something.

• Everyone thinks they have a great sense of humor.

• Every time I hear Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” I will sing along.

• There will always be those who will try to one-up you.

• Patience isn’t just a virtue, it’s a life skill. • I’m never going to be too old for Harry Potter books.

• Not everyone can be the leader; sometimes you just have to try to be the best follower you can be.

• Someday, my son will read this and finally get it.

• Having the last word isn’t always the most important thing.

• You can’t change anyone.

• The old adage “don’t let the sun set on your anger” isn’t always the best solution to working out a problem.

• You can change yourself. • I feel much younger than the number actually reflects. • My mother will always expect me to call her when I get home. • Me time isimportant. • Girlfriend time is priceless. • Pat Benatar was right: love is a battlefield.

• Communication is not just a skill that benefits you as a professional, it’s a virtue to be mastered. What pearls of wisdom would make your list? I’d love to read them and hopefully – learn from them!

Winter Blues and Blahs

Let the Sun Shine

If You are SAD

When the sun shines, try to grab a few rays if at all possible. Even a brief noontime stroll can lift your spirits. When there’s no sun outside, bring some sunshine into your life in other ways. Bright , cheerful colors can help lift spirits, too. Grab a bouquet of inexpensive flowers when you visit the grocery store. Use bandanas as napkins or placemats to add color to your family’s table. Toss an inexpensive pillow or throw on your couch. Frame a child’s artwork and place it in a spot that needs cheer.

If you or a family member does suffer significant depressive symptoms (such as fatigue, lack of interest in normal activities, social withdrawal, weight change and sad or irritable mood) that interfere with daily life, consult a health or mental health professional to determine if you may suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder. This type of depression usually appears during the winter months and is not present in nonwinter months. It can be treated with some combination of light therapy, medication and talk therapy.

Get Moving It seems that every other creature on earth has a way of coping with winter: bears hibernate, birds migrate, and squirrels store up nuts. What’s a human being supposed to do?

The research is clear on the positive relationship between exercise and wellness (both mental and physical). Winter weather can limit choices. If your usual exercise activities are difficult during winter months, consider the following: take up a winter sport; learn Zumba; join a class; get a new exercise game for your home video equipment. Your local YMCA or faith-based group may also have some interesting activities available for different ages or families. Keep looking until you find something that works for you and your family.

Feeling Better Whether you are suffering from seasonal depression or simply the winter “blahs,” the professional staff of CareNet Counseling can help you and your family to replace the winter “blues” with a brighter color.

Responses to the winter months can range from simple “cabin fever” to a type of depression known as SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). The majority of people will not suffer SAD but may still be affected by the change in season. Adults may become lethargic, irritable or may over-eat. Children can become irritable but may actually Embrace the Season increase their activity levels (ask any teacher what the class is like after a week Long winter evenings contain hidden opportunities. More time inside can lead without recess!). to family conflict or to family creativity! Get an Attitude Winter is a good time to start a family It all starts with attitude. Many words tradition (taco night or movie night), associated with winter have a negative learn a new board game or try dinner by cultural context: long . . . dark . . . cold. candlelight. It can also be a time to slow Dreading winter actually extends the down, rest and refresh. Although season by anticipating it long before it humans don’t hibernate, we all need arrives! Instead of dreading winter, “down time” and winter may be just the perfect opportunity! make some plans to “get into it.”

A M i r a c l e F i x f o r Yo u r K i t c h e n a n d B a t h By Susan Woodall ver time, everyone's kitchen and bathrooms need some updating. Whether you want to change the color of the tile or bathtub, or give your countertops an update, removal and replacement is expensive. There is, however, a less expensive and time saving alternative Miracle Method. "Miracle Method is the nation's most trusted name in kitchen and bath surface refinishing," said Ann Roush who, with her husband Ken, owns the Triad's Miracle Method franchise. "Surface refinishing is a cost-effective makeover alternative to the removal and replacement of bathtubs, tile, vanities and kitchen countertops. More than 30 years ago, Miracle Method pioneered the technology of surface refinishing and continues to refine and improve the process. We utilize a proprietary MM-4 bonding agent which provides superior adhesion for a durable finish. Unlike traditional removal and replacement which is expensive and can leave your bathroom torn up for weeks, your Miracle Method refinished bathtub is ready the next day and countertops and vanities are ready in as little as 48 hours! Miracle Method can also refinish clawfoot tubs and pedestal sinks which add a distinctive designer look for many homes. We can refinish in your choice of colors, too." Ann and Ken Roush brought Miracle Method to the Triad in 2010 and have received rave reviews for their products and service. "We are very happy with the outcome!" said one client. "We had estimates to re-do the shower floor upwards of three thousand dollars. Thank you for saving us money without it looking like a cheap fix." So what does the Miracle Method involve? A trained technician will mask off the work area. He will then clean and remove soap scum with a two-step commercial cleaner. If necessary, the technician will strip the existing surface. Chips, scratches and other damaged areas will be repaired. Miracle Method's proprietary bonding agent will then be applied to chemically bond the new finish onto the old surface. A primer coat is then applied followed by several layers of

30 /

an acrylic coating. The surface is then left to cure overnight. The next day a technician will return to buff and polish the surface and remove imperfections something very few refinishers offer. The tub is re-caulked and the protective masking is removed from the work area. You are left with a beautiful new bathroom, a written warranty and little inconvenience. "Miracle Method offers one of the best warranties in the industry," said Roush. "We offer a five-year limited warranty against peeling and failure of adhesion for bathtubs, wall tile, counters and fiberglass fixtures while sinks and spot repairs are warranted for one year. We strive for 100% customer satisfaction. Our commitment to quality is the reason we are the nation's #1 surface refinishing company." New countertops can revive your kitchen. Miracle Method offers Natural Accents (TM) finishes which give a gorgeous, stone-like look. They are available either in a semi- gloss or satin finish and can be ready in as few as 48 hours. Another distinctive service offered by Miracle Method is the EasyStep bathtub-to-shower conversion. This is an affordable solution to making bathing safer for elderly and physically impaired individuals. This conversion can be completed in just one day. "Another advantage of the Miracle Method Easy-Step is that if the removed piece is saved, it can be replaced at a later date, and you'll never know the conversion has been made," said Roush. Miracle Method of the Triad is a member of the Better Business Bureau and gladly provides references. "We feel good about our process because we are environmentally friendly," said Roush. "No messy tear outs; no bulky waste in our landfills. It's a good way to repurpose." For more information on Miracle Method, visit their website at www.miraclemethod/ or call 336-923-8900. Ken will gladly give free estimates over the phone or in your home or business. The showroom is located at 1227 South Park Dr. in Kernersville (by appt. only).

Maya Angelou Center for Women's Health Hosts International Women's Health Summit & Honors Its Namesake By Kristi Johnson Marion

In May, Forsyth Medical Center announced the creation of the "Maya Angelou Center for Women's Health and Wellness" (MACWHW). It is the region’s first center to coordinate comprehensive healthcare and wellness services specifically designed to meet the unique needs of women throughout their lives. The center will also be the region’s first to employ women’s "health navigators" to help coordinate the array of services available to women throughout Forsyth Medical Center and its affiliated physician practices. Why a Women's Health & Wellness Center? Women are affected by some health conditions MORE than men. • Women are 3 times more likely to suffer from migraines • 33% of women age 20+ experience hypertension, but after age 50, it's more common in women. • 12 million Americans have an autoimmune disease. 9 million of them are women. • For every 2 men who develop rheumatoid arthritis, 5 women do. • For every 1 man who develops an overactive thyroid, 7 women do. • Gallstones are 3-4 times more common in women than men. • Women are diagnosed with anxiety or depression twice as much as men. • Women have lower bone density than men. 75% of osteoporosis sufferers are women. • 2/3 of Americans diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease are women. • Only 30% of women having a heart attack experience "typical" symptoms. They are more likely to report nausea, fatigue and shortness of breath rather than chest pains. • And when having a heart attack, women are less likely than men to call 911. International Women's Health Summit The MACWHW held its inaugural Maya Angelou International Women's Health Summit September 27-29, 2012. The Summit hosted approximately 140 national and international health and community professionals each day of the Summit, who engaged in three days of discussion, planning and networking in response to keynote and panel presentations by physicians and women's health organizations from around the world. The Summit also aired via webcast to Salem College, Winston-Salem State University, A&T University, Bennett College, Hubei University of Chinese Medicine and the National Health Training College of Lesotho. Health professionals attending received educational credit.

Dr. Chere Gregory, Co-Organizer of the International Women's Health Summit and Physician Leader for MACWHW and the Director of Neurosciences at Forsyth Medical Center Dr. Chere Gregory, Physician Leader for MACWHW and the Director of Neurosciences at Forsyth Medical Center, planned the summit to create a dialogue about contemporary issues that affect the health and life experiences of women and address women's health care needs in order to facilitate connectivity across the world and dialogue of shared issues. Women in Forsyth County One of the many presenters was Doris Páez, PhD, and Executive Director of Forsyth Futures, an organization that seeks to provide a broad view of local information, connect people, and serve as a community convener to focus on issues and take actions to improve the quality of life in Forsyth County. She gave a wide array of statistics of women in our county, all available at Forsyth Futures website. She stated that "1 in 4 women in Forsyth County have no assets," i.e., live paycheck to paycheck. She urged physicians to ask better questions and try to understand the "personal culture" of their female patients and to become an "undercover boss" of their own practice, by making an appointment, filling out all the forms and even waiting in their own waiting room. Evening Celebration of Women The two and a half-day conference culminated with an Evening Celebration of Women fundraiser for the Center on Saturday, September 29, 2012. Guests enjoyed cocktails and a silent auction before dinner. After dinner, awards were presented to honorees, including a presentation of a leadership award to Dr. Elsie Scott, by Keith Grandberry of the Winston-Salem Urban League and Denise Gatling, of GlaxoSmithKline. The Maya Angelou Center for Women's Health also presented a regional women's health award to Camille McGirt, UNC-Chapel Hill student, former basketball player, and Founder of Healthy Girls Save the World; a national women's health award to Molly Barker, Founder of Girls on the Run; and a global women's health award to Dr. Medge Owen, Obstetric Anesthesiologist and leader of Kybele, a childbirth safety organization. Honoring Dr. Maya Angelou The finale of the Evening Celebration of Women was the presentation of the Lifetime Achievement Award to the Center's namesake, Dr. Maya Angelou, for "inspiring phenomenal women worldwide." Dr. Angelou said, "You have honored me so, to name this women's center after me. I honor you, and I thank you." She spoke of the importance of and the power of women and urged women "to become our own best friends, advocates, and protectors.... I am grateful to be a woman." For more information:,,,

This has been a rough election year for me. My family and I are on opposite sides of the political fence. My neighborhood is covered with signs supporting different candidates, spaced out, every other household. Even my friend, Rod and I, stand opposed. We have civil yet lively "discussions" over lunch, each one making snarky comments at the other one. "I can't believe you like that guy!!! He reminds me of a dishonest boss I once had... he'd smile and pat you on the back with one hand while stabbing you in the back with the other!" "You think YOUR guy is any more honest??? Have you seen the Fact Check statistics on him?" We agree to disagree for the good of the food. Truth is, the world of politics is a lot like golf. There are so many theories, ideas, swing tips and concepts floating around, it's hard to know who to trust. How does one separate fact from fiction, the truth from what is said just to sell magazines? I would like to encourage you to break the golf swing down into a few core concepts. If you understand those, it will help you to be more discerning when you hear a new idea. Power comes from weight shift, length of arc, and leverage. Direction comes from the path the club travels and the club face at impact. To keep it basic, I break it down into four movements. Turn - The swing starts by turning the back, not the arms. Let your left shoulder turn over your right shoe for proper weight shift. It's OK to move your head a bit. When you turn, remember to DRAG the club head low and straight back for at least two feet before you hinge. Hinge - Once your hands pass your leg, let your wrists, not your arms, hinge up so the club and your left arm form a letter L. That's leverage. Drop - Once at the top of your back swing, the first move is to let the right elbow drop to touch your right hip. Keep the wrist hinge on the way down. Don’t “unhinge.” Physics will take care of that for you. TWIST - Once your club drops down and your right elbow is resting on your hip, twist through with as much speed as you can. This is the real acceleration point of the swing. That’s why the word is in all capital letters. If you do this correctly, the turn will square the club face for you at impact. Keep your swing thoughts simple. The body turns and shifts weight. The wrists hinge and create leverage. The arms just stay extended for a big arc. The hips twist through for power. It’s as simple as that. If only politics could be that easy….

Furniture, Home Accessories & Gift Ideas to Accent Your Life


A Partnership of Knowledge and Experience With a friendship that began in middle school, Cheri and Justin have spent much of their lives together. “We’ve been best friends for over 10 years and are now engaged. We were a likely partnership, talking about opening our own store for many years, after spending time working side by side at several furniture markets across the country,” commented Cheri. Growing up with a father who owned a business, Cheri knew early on the retail side of business. “My dad, Terry Bull, owned C. Elliott & Co., a jewelry store in WinstonSalem, for over 20 years, so I saw firsthand the time and commitment it took to make a business successful. I think I always knew I wanted my own business and while I was in college at UNC-W, I actually wrote a business plan for what would become Accent Prone. After being

accepted into a selective business mentorship, I was placed with Judy Girard, former President of HGTV. She helped me critique my plan and through her years of experience, got me thinking about what a consumer would want out of our business. Along with the support and motivation from Judy, I interned for a local furniture store in Wilmington, NC, where I got great experience in management, store display, merchandising and interior design, and graduated with honors from UNC-W with a degree in Business Administration focusing on

entrepreneurship,” recalled Cheri. Also during her college years, Cheri was able to study abroad in Europe, where she gained an appreciation for architecture and different styles, knowing that one day she wanted to bring the knowledge, skills and experience she had gained back to her hometown of Kernersville, NC, with a store offering a unique mix of home accessories. Cheri’s business partner and fiancé, Justin Lingafelt, also grew up understanding sales, but from a slightly different perspective. “My


For Cheri Bull and Justin Lingafelt, owning a business – Accent Prone in Kernersville, NC – comes after a lifetime of learning their business and building connections within the home accessories and furnishings market. “By buying entire showrooms after market, we can offer brand new merchandise at great prices and pass those deals along to our customers with everything at wholesale cost or below,” stated Justin.

parents worked in the furniture industry and I was probably at my first High Point market at age 6, later working with my mom as she designed and managed showrooms. I took courses at NCSU with a focus on marketing and entrepreneurship. I also travelled throughout the US, including Dallas, Las Vegas, Memphis and Atlanta, working in showroom management and sales. Because of my experience over the years, I know furniture from the manufacturing side. With my mom and step-dad still very involved in the industry, I am kept up to date on new furniture trends and products before it hits the market,” said Justin. So with a business plan focused on the needs of the customers in place, the only thing left was a name for the business which, strangely, came by accident.

40 /

The Name Says It All! Cheri and Justin knew that a catchy name was needed to get the public’s attention once they opened their store. With their final idea for their business of offering furniture market samples to customers at wholesale or below prices in place, what would be a good name? “We literally had pages and pages of names that we wrote down and then decided we didn’t like,” commented Cheri. “Then, by mistake I said, ‘Accident Prone,’ leading to ‘Accent Prone,’ which I laughed off, but Justin really liked it. The name was quirky and described exactly what we are: a store with merchandise from accent furniture, to accessories, to fashion. We are ‘prone to accent!’” Making a Space Your Own Comes in the Details Over the past few years, home accent furnishings have become leading lines in the

furniture industry. “Many people don’t have thousands of dollars to put into an entirely new room full of furniture, so instead they are focusing on the small details, like a lamp, a decorative mirror, or that little something extra that helps your home become a reflection of you. At Accent Prone we are able to help customers find those unique, hard to find pieces which can give a room or a home a personality and a completely different feel,” Justin commented. Through buying entire showrooms following market, Cheri and Justin have an eclectic assortment of everything from furniture to home accessories, with great gift ideas added, too. “We have a huge assortment of items and styles ranging from traditional to modern, to transitional, to ‘shabby chic.’ Our store merchandise

changes almost every day with new items from our warehouse. We tell our customers that if they ‘like’ something, go home and think about it, but if they ‘love’ an item, they’d better buy it because with only one of each piece, things sell quickly. Our customers can also have a ‘Wish List’ on file with items they want and when we are at market, Cheri and I can look for those items. We are about meeting the customer’s needs and giving them quality accessories at great prices,” said Justin. Accent Prone also honors Cheri’s background in jewelry and fashion with their gift idea area. “My dad has been a great supporter, mentor and guiding hand throughout opening Accent Prone, showing us the retail ropes. He still enjoys being involved in jewelry, so we have a few of his pieces here at Accent Prone, as

Accent Prone

well as costume jewelry. We realize that some customers may come in and not really have anything particular in mind to add to their home, but they might need a scarf, handbag or an added piece of jewelry,” Cheri commented. Accent Prone has quickly become a popular store for finding that accent that a room needs to liven it up, or that accent your wardrobe needs to give it something extra! Accent Prone is located at 1030 South Main Street, Space F, Kernersville, NC. Hours of operation: Mon-Sat, 10-8 pm.

Unique Destination Shopping Right Around the Corner By Carolyn S. Peterson

here’s nothing quite like finding a shop, maybe in an out of the way place, along the Parkway or the coast, that has a little something for everyone. What if you didn’t have to go any further than around the corner for unique gifts and fashion accessories? For the past 6 years, Accessorize This!, a gift boutique, has been offering ‘a little bit of everything’ right around the corner in Lewisville.


Customer Service Leads to Success Gina Player, owner of Accessorize This!, has a philosophy on customer service that has served her well. “To be successful in retail, exceptional customer service has to be inherent and genuine. I care that someone has taken the time to stop and shop with me, so I’m going to make sure they have the best experience possible. I truly enjoy meeting my customers and assisting them in finding that last minute gift or a little something, like a scarf or piece of jewelry, to brighten their own day. In turn, my customers tell their family and friends about what they bought, bringing in new customers,” said Gina. Going above and beyond in customer service is what Gina specializes in. “I have customers who have a particular item, like a necklace, scarf, hand bag or gift idea in mind, and when I go to market, I keep my eyes peeled for things I know they will really like. I love that my customers often consider me a resource in finding that certain something that completes an outfit,” Gina stated. When you pair great customer service with unique and affordable gift items, you have two of the most important ingredients in the recipe for success. But there are a few other ‘ingredients,’ too… The Importance of Buying Local As a small, local business, Gina realized early on the importance of buying local.

42 /

“I have chosen to support craftsmen, both locally and domestically, along with those involved in fair trade to continue the idea of giving back to the community. People are interested in buying items made in the USA, so I make a concerted effort to carry product lines which are made in this country,” Gina commented. Taking the whole ‘buying local’ idea to the next step is something Gina has accomplished with the craft fair sponsored by Accessorize This! on November 3, 2012. “Originally I had wanted to bring local artisans together in one place so customers could see their beautiful products. This was going to be a onetime event, but it was so popular that this will be our third one. We hope to have around 20 vendors selling jewelry, including sterling silver, gemstone and Swarovski crystal, pottery, wood working, baby clothes and hand bags. Accessorize This! will have a sidewalk sale and concessions will be available too,” stated Gina. Continuing in the support of her community, Gina partnered with the Lewisville Historical Society in producing sun catchers featuring well known landmarks in the area. “Lewisville is rich with history and wonderful buildings, so our first sun catcher, which can be used as a Christmas ornament, was of the Nissen house and this year we have the Laugenour house, which was the home of Lewis Laugenour, the man Lewisville was named for. A percentage of the sales of the sun catchers will go back into the community to help fund projects for the historical society,” Gina said. Accessorize This! is located at 6301 Shallowford Road, Lewisville, NC. Hours of operation: Mon. 10-5 pm; Tues.-Fri- 10-6 pm; Sat. 10-4 pm. For more information call Gina at 946-0211 or visit

Bright Ideas… Reminders for Accessorizing During the Holidays

ReDESIGNS by Ava “Rejoice in the family and friends that surround you, as crazy as they may sometimes be. Remember, some have only themselves as they walk through this life. Give thanks for the simple things, the traditions handed down from generation to generation. Be thankful for what you do have instead of lamenting about what you have not achieved or yet obtained. Acknowledge your talents as blessings and share them with the world. Live in the moment with the people that cross your path, give thanks for the lessons they bring you. Our homes are our sanctuaries from the world. Be thankful for them and the family, friends, and loved ones who walk through the doors as they enrich our lives and feed our souls as no money or food possibly can” ~Author Unknown

o you ever feel Thanksgiving gets lost between Halloween and Christmas? Giving thanks was so important to our forefathers that they made it a national holiday. As you gather with family and friends to celebrate this Thanksgiving, take time to honor the day with thankfulness and gratitude.


As I approach this season of Thanksgiving, I am reminded of all the blessings in my life. Being a part of this wonderful magazine is one of those blessings and so are you. To my wonderful clients who trust me to assist them in making decorating decisions for their homes, thank you. It is my pleasure to encourage you to create a beautiful home and I am thankful for the opportunity.

Many of you will begin decorating your home for the upcoming holiday season this month. Just a few reminders for accessorizing: 1. Arrange accessories in odd number groupings. Even 1 large accessory works in the right space. 2. Vary the heights of the accessories in the grouping. Don’t forget that if an item isn’t tall enough, you can use books or a box to raise the item. 3. Group like items together rather than scattering them through out the room. For example: keep your collection of Santas together for more of a visual impact. I have a collection of Christmas photos of our family in pretty frames that I like to display together. It’s fun to see how we have changed through the years. 4. Corral items on a tray as a centerpiece on your table, ottoman, coffee table, sofa table, etc. This showcases the items. Especially on your dining table, it is a great alternative to a single centerpiece. 5. Include plants and flowers to add life, color and texture to your groupings. 6. Use large scale accessories if your rooms are large. Small items will just get lost in your rooms. 7. Create backdrops for your accessories on bookcases, shelves, mantles, china cabinets, etc., by using platters, plates, mirrors or trays….even plate chargers. 8. Resist the urge to fill every inch of the shelf and tabletop space. The eye needs a place to rest and this will also help you to focus and enjoy the other accessories. Does your home need a little help for the holidays? An Interior Redesign is just the thing to freshen up your décor and be ready for the holidays. Give ReDESIGNS by Ava a call. Counting my blessings…naming them one by one… counting my blessings and seeing what God has done! Happy Thanksgiving! Ava

Cellulite Busters By Kristi Johnson Marion Cottage cheese is a healthy snack, but not so great when it's on your thighs. Body Contouring Specialists can help diminish the appearance of your cellulite, improve circulation by 400 percent and reduce swelling caused by lymphedema. Endermologie is a treatment called lipomassage that uses a special machine with rollers that massage, roll and suction the skin. Each roller has a different technique that contours, smoothes, firms and lifts everything, while also helping redistribute fat cells that cause cellulite and dimpling. The painless process lasts an hour and is just as relaxing as a massage. Clients wear a body stocking, and the Endermologie machine "feels like a relaxing, light massage with suction, but does the work of a deep tissue massage,â&#x20AC;? said Megan Lyon, the Endermologie Specialist at Body Contouring Specialists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most clients fall asleep during the process."

Megan wears all the hats at Body Contouring Specialists as the sole operator, administrator and technician. She has been practicing Endermologie for over a year and a half. She is also a licensed massage therapist and bodyworker, and has been practicing clinical, deep tissue, Swedish and sports massage, working on professional cyclists. "Most clients require about 10-15 one-hour sessions to achieve their optimum goal," said Megan, "but most see immediate results with their pants fitting looser after their first session. I request that clients wear their 'tight jeans,' so they can feel how much looser they fit after the very first session." It is recommended that clients come twice a week for the first 4-6 weeks and be within 20 pounds of their goal weight before beginning treatments. Once clients "get their optimum results," visits begin to reduce to once a week, then once every other week and finally once a month. With regular exercise and eating well, results last up to 8 months. World renowned celebrity fitness trainer and fitness expert Gunnar Peterson endorses lipomassage for his clients, and said that Endermologie, "picks up where diet and exercise leaves off, while also complementing oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diet and exercise." He also states that, "it is the last ingredient to make it perfect, make it your perfect." Scores of celebrities reportedly receive the treatment, such as Victoria's Secret models, Jessica Alba, Katherine Heigl, Beyonce, Angelina Jolie, Elle Macpherson, Uma Thurman, Penelope Cruz, Eva Longoria, Catherine Zeta Jones, Tyra Banks and Britney Spears, to name a few. One of Megan's clients, Tracy H., said that after 14 sessions she "lost at least two inches from her inner thighs," and noted that "it is a bonus" that it relieves her back pain and soreness from working out. Tracy, who is already very fit, said that, "everything really firmed up," thanks to her Endermologie sessions. Another client, Sharon S., has gone from a tight 14 pant size to a loose 12 in the

same number of sessions, and says that "95 percent of her cellulite is gone." Sharon said it has really helped her recover faster from training and has enabled her to train harder. Endermologie was introduced in France 27 years ago as a way to help the skin appearance of burn victims. It was the first government approved cellulite reduction treatment in France and became the first in the United States 17 years ago. The American Skincare and Cellulite Expert association recommend Endermologie as the gold standard for cellulite reduction because it is the only one with the "tri-fecta": it is FDA approved, non-invasive and all natural. The treatment is also endorsed by the LiveStrong Foundation, which states, "Endermologie isn't only for women with cellulite, though many women clearly use the treatment for that alone. Because Endermologie increases blood circulation by more than 400 percent, it helps burn fat and can lead to a more contoured, shapely body. The circulation boost also improves muscle recovery time for more serious athletes in training, offers relief from fibromyalgia, and provides burn therapy and other rehabilitative benefits." For more information about lipomassage, visit and Located within Gray Chiropractic & Sports Associates, Body Contouring Specialists is the only Endermologie lipomassage facility in the Triad. Contact Megan today to inquire about a consultation and package prices. Body Contouring Specialists is located at 223 Harper St., Winston-Salem, NC 27104, (336) 499-3130.

STAN DAVIS Hair Stylist From Keratin to Cuts… Having the Hair You Want! By Carolyn S. Peterson For Stan Davis, hair stylist at Legends Hair Salon, your hair is not about his ego or his vision. As he says, “I’m about communication with the client and fulfilling their needs, not mine.” Whether you have long, short or somewhere in between length hair, you know what you want: a great style and cut, along with the healthiest hair you can have. To accomplish both, Davis has quite a few treatments and techniques at his fingertips! Face Metrics Wouldn’t it be nice to know what a certain hairstyle would look like on you before you make that final decision and let the cutting begin? Well, now you can with the Face Metrics program, which maps out your face from forehead to chin, allowing Davis to create a hairstyle that complements your hair and facial features. “Through Face Metrics my client and I can see the actual percentage of balance of the face. With this information, along with knowing my client’s lifestyle and how skilled they are in styling their hair, I am able to create a style and a look that suits their facial features and that they are able to recreate themselves. The Face Metrics program is the perfect fusion between science and the artistry of hair styling,” said Davis. For the holidays, Face Metrics will be a free service provided with the first scheduled appointment. Keratin Then there are those clients who want their hair to be a little more manageable and healthier. For that request, Davis suggests keratin treatments. For many, keratin treatments have become known as ‘skin care for the hair.’ “Keratin treatments give clients several results. Not only does keratin make the hair healthier, restoring much of what is stripped away from color, perms and every day styling of one’s hair, it also gives hair a frizz free shine and relaxes the curl, leaving the hair soft and luxurious. Although it is not a straightener, depending on the keratin, it can reduce curl 30%-50%. Some of the practical benefits of keratin are faster and easier hair to blow-dry, reduction of daily styling time and less maintenance. The infusion of keratin into the cuticles of the hair revitalizes and rejuvenates the hair. The treatment usually takes a few hours and

costs between $100-$200, depending on the hair type and length, and lasts up to 4 months with use of recommended maintenance products,” Davis commented. Along the same lines of keeping hair healthy, Davis uses products to lock in the color of hair as well as address issues like water hardness and preparing hair for perms and color. “Malibu C is a product line of all natural, organic, 100% vegan treatments that will repair hair and improve hair damaged from everything including hard water, well water, chemical damage and scalp solutions,” stated Davis. Holiday packages are available for keratin treatments, including maintenance products, which are a $45 value, free with a keratin treatment. Color and style packages will also be offered. Precision Razor Cuts Once you have the style in mind from Face Metrics and the feel and manageability that comes from a keratin treatment, all you need now is the fabulous cut. Fortunately, there are new advancements in the tools used to get your style just right. When a soft, beveled edge is the desired result for a cut, Davis uses a heated razor. Because the razor is heated, the cut can be made quicker, sealing the edge to keep hair from getting frizzy ends. “There are so many tools available, from the heated razor, to clippers, to various scissor types, to use to get the right cut, whether you have a short, pixie cut or a long layered one. Texturizing with electric clippers is great for not only shorter styles, but for longer ones, too. As the National Educational Director for Thermafuse products, I have worked and trained with the best, developing cutting and styling techniques and I believe in growing in your abilities through continuing education. The more I know about my art, the better I can be at it,” Davis stated. Legends Hair Salon is located at 4003 Country Club Road, Winston-Salem, NC.

Taking Wood Fired to a Whole New Level


effrey Adams on Fourth Street is the newest addition to the downtown restaurant scene. A partnership between Adam Andrews and Jeff Bassett of the Old Fourth Street Filling Station, this new restaurant has the elegance of a steak house without the dress code or price.

“We’ve been scouting locations for another downtown restaurant for over a year, looking for something as successful as The Old Fourth Street Filling Station. Nothing really worked for us until one of the servers at a nearby restaurant came over during lunch and told us that the former NOMA building was available. We both looked at each other and knew that was the space,” says Jeff Bassett, part owner of Jeffrey Adams on Fourth. “The building was perfect for the concept I had in mind. The old feel to the building and the detail in construction made it unique, adding modern seating makes it comfortable and elegant. A big plus is the building has two stories. The top level is available for a private party if needed, complete with bar and restrooms, without disrupting the downstairs restaurant. The lounge with a bar downstairs means anyone can come and relax, watch the game, hang with friends, or host a private celebration,” says Adam Andrews. “Another plus, is the proximity to everything happening in

downtown Winston-Salem, the Stevens Center next door, HanesBrand Theatre down the street and A/perture Theater on Fourth. There’s plenty of time to enjoy drinks, appetizers or dinner and make your show,” says Bassett. Andrews brings his experience to the new venture. “The Pennsylvania Culinary Institute was a great education, but getting out into the kitchen and developing my own taste at The Filling Station was better. When I was putting together the menu, the addition of the Wood Fired Grill added another dimension to our signature dishes. There is nothing like the smoky flavor of hickory in your choice of local steak, chicken, or Portobello mushroom. Our grilled entrees include your choice of toppings, from lobster to caramelized onions. Plus, our entrees include sides without the extra charge. We are that place you feel comfortable enough to come whenever you want, knowing with so many different menu choices, each night is never the same,” says Andrews. “Recently I went to Italy with my wife. Immersing myself in another culture and tasting their cuisine gave me some great ideas for the specials for Jeffrey Adams. I’m excited to expand not just my knowledge, but everyone’s tastes for something new.” What separates Jeffrey Adams on Fourth from other restaurants on Fourth Street? “Not just the wood fired grill, but also our craft

As Logan looks to her future, she can see that Logi B. Designs has the potential to become bigger than she and her family first thought. With the original goal being college savings, it’s turned into so much more. “I would love to attend UNC or UNC-W for business school and then go into a fashion/design program,” said Logan.

family that I enjoy being a teenager, so the addition of the new employees has made things a lot easier. I have learned so much about the business world through Logi B. Designs, like the amount of work and hours it takes…there’s a lot more to a business than just selling the product,” Logan said. As far as business being easier than in the beginning, Logan commented, “We have learned so many ‘better’ ways to make the scarves, getting into a great routine, with each of us focusing on certain areas. Many of our sweaters, which we make the scarves from, are given to us and I also go to thrift stores and Goodwill to find them. Our customers have been so supportive over the years because they love the product, my story, and the fact that each scarf is made from recycled materials,” stated Logan. A recent addition to the Logi B. Design line is “memory scarves,” where individuals bring in items belonging to a loved one who has passed. The emotional attachment to personal treasures makes a touching tribute to a family member or friend. Sweaters, gloves and jewelry create a cherished piece that will be enjoyed for many years. “It’s so rewarding to see the end product of the “memory scarf” and the joy that it brings. Although we haven’t advertised the “memory scarves,” the word is spreading and they are becoming popular, along with our collegiate line,” Logan commented.

Holiday Sweets

Tart Sweets Handmade Cakes & Candies 336.793.6216 •


he holidays are rapidly approaching. It seems as if every year the stores set out the displays earlier, the season creeps up more quickly, and there is less time to get everything done. This year, do not fret. I have just the answer for you (along with many comments from satisfied tasters)! Some of you may know that my husband is a nurse in a local emergency room, so we had a great idea of inviting the wonderful bakers from Tart Sweets and Heavenly Cheesecakes by Becky to bring some treats to the ER for this month’s article. Additionally, the treats helped to celebrate these local heroes during Emergency Nurses Celebration Week. Consequently, I will not be the only one telling you how wonderful these treats are!

Everyone knows they can pick up generic cakes or treats that have little to no personality at any local grocery store. However, few may be aware of these two treasures in our community that can add lots of exquisite taste and personality to your desserts. Tart Sweets is a local cupcake and candy boutique run by Chelsea Tart and her mom, Lynn Tart, in Pfafftown. Becky Brown owns Heavenly Cheesecakes, which is located in the Gumtree/Midway area. Each of these ladies excels at tempting taste buds with tantalizing treats (and, regrettably, causing diets to be broken). Fortunately, this is the time of the year that we mind it less.

Heavenly Cheesecakes by Becky 336.577.9390 • 11040 Old US 52 Winston-Salem, NC 27107

Becky brought out several trays of cheesecakes, including the Double Rich Chocolate, Maple Pumpkin, and Red Velvet Cheesecakes. Some of the comments received include:

• “The chocolate toffee chip was crunchy, very rich, and wonderful. However, the Pumpkin spice French macarons were my favorite. They were AMAZING!” - Anonymous

• “The maple pumpkin cheesecake… OMG! Sooo good!! – Melissa J.

• Similarly, Shannon L. said, “The chocolate toffee chip is perfect for a cold morning with some java!”

• “The chocolate cheesecake was so rich, it was AWESOME! – Christa H. • Simply “YUM” – anonymous • “The maple pumpkin cheesecake was delish!” – Cassie • “The maple pumpkin cheesecake had a delicious blend of flavors with the graham cracker crust. It would be a great holiday table topper to impress friends or family!” – Ben S. • “The Heavenly Cheesecakes were all heavenly, or sinful – depending on how you look at them!” – Anonymous Chelsea, from Tart Sweets, brought out several boxes of cupcakes, along with some French macarons, and homemade caramels. Here is what people are saying about these treats: • “Outstanding macarons… the pumpkin spice is a unique flavor for a macaron. It was a great combination of spice and sweet.” – Roy A. • “The macarons were perfect light bites and the caramel macchiato was the perfect accompaniment for my morning coffee.” – Kyle W.

• “The snicker-doodle cupcakes were the best cupcakes that I have EVER had!” Tracy L. One comment that was heard from nearly every one of the healthcare workers, even those not quoted above, was “Thank you!” Everyone was happy to have such delicious treats brought to the good people who take care of us in an emergency. There should really be another thank you going out to each of these heroic doctors, nurses, radiology technicians, and each of the rest of our wonderful healthcare workers. Thank you for helping us in our times of need! The next time you see a person who works in EMS or healthcare, tell them, “Thank you,” for looking out for us when we are at our worst! And this holiday season, or anytime that you have a sweet tooth, make Tart Sweets or Heavenly Cheesecakes your choice, and be sure to tell them Rosey sent you!

Simplemente Spanish “I guess I was lucky to have been born into a family that stressed the use of proper language,” said Renza Wallace, of Simplemente Spanish. Wallace, a native of Arequipa, Peru, enlists the use of conversational Spanish throughout her various class levels. Each class is designed to educate new speakers to learn, and ultimately use, conversational Spanish for travel, business or speaking with family and friends. After several years of running her successful year-round retail shop, Inca’s Treasure, Wallace needed to adjust her business to a seasonal schedule. In addition, she wanted to find an additional career outlet. While reading the Winston-Salem Journal one day, a simple ad caught her attention. The ad read: “Native Spanish speaker to teach Spanish. No experience needed. We will train.” The Peruvian native was interested in exactly what teaching methods the company, Inlingua School of Language, would use to teach adult students. And so, after a brief stint of training, Wallace began her voyage into becoming a Spanish teacher. “I taught Spanish to middle management and executive adults for eight years,” she said. “I quickly noticed how the method focused on conversation, from the beginning of the class to the very last minute.” While Wallace enjoyed her time as a professor of this method, and saw how using conversation was effective, she also noticed that, at times, the strict “conversation-only” method created anxiety for some students. “I realized that for adults, it was very frustrating to try and convey something in another language,” she said. After eight years with the language school, Renza was offered the chance to teach a part-time continuing adult studies Spanish course with Salem College. At that time, she also taught another continuing adult studies Spanish course called

Promotes Learning Spanish through Conversation By Elisa D. Wallace

“Portals of Discovery,” which was held at the Reynolda House. While teaching both courses, Renza began crafting her own teaching methods, aimed at helping all types of learners. A few years after being with Salem, Renza decided to branch out on her own with an entirely new, innovative method of teaching. Through incorporating vocabulary-built graphs – which cater to the visual learners – alongside conversation utilizing the vocabulary – which caters to the auditory learners – Wallace discovered that her new students seemed to be at greater ease. “For instance, if the person is a visual learner, I would show them the graph, then ask them to write down the concept and later have them practice it within conversation.” Two other aspects of Simplemente Spanish set the course in a different category from traditional language courses. By having a smaller class size, new Spanish speakers do not have the anxiety of making mistakes in front of a large crowd. “Since my classes only range from 3-6 students, I am also able to cater to the individual needs of each student,” Wallace continued. The other aspect differentiating the course is the environment. Housed in Wallace’s store, Inca’s Treasure, each class is literally surrounded by items from Wallace’s motherland. The store, a cozy bungalow nestled in the historic neighborhood known as Hanestown in Winston-Salem, has a variety of folkloric art, luxurious Alpaca sweaters, scarves and outerwear, and exquisite jewelry—all from Peru. “Through hosting my classes in Inca’s Treasure, I am able to provide students with the full experience,” she said. “In each class, I have Peruvian music, art and even food for them to enjoy.” Students of Simplemente Spanish sing the praises of Wallace’s different style of teaching. “It is an excellent refresher course in Spanish,” said David Tate, one of Wallace’s previous Simplemente Spanish students. “Renza is very patient with her students.” In her previous teaching evaluation forms from Salem College, Wallace was also complimented. “The grammar is understandable when she teaches it through her engaging method,” said one anonymous student. Wallace is proud of her different style of teaching and will host a beginning course this winter. Classes run at six-week intervals, with each class meeting once a week for an hour and a half. “I can also provide one-on-one tutoring when needed,” she said. Interested students can contact Renza today at 336723-7292 or via email at “I am blessed to have learned to teach Spanish through experience,” replied the instructor. “And I truly love each of my classes.”

Exercising Your Right to Vote for Mr. Right By Omar & Christie


ovember may open the door to a variety of opportunities to vote for change. Upcoming elections may usher in new political leaders with a different political agenda or they may bring a sharper focus on issues for incumbents. These winds of change may inspire you to “re-elect” your current Mr. Right or vote for another candidate on the dating ballot. Maybe you have met Mr. Right online and this new relationship is progressing well. You share many enjoyable nights together and have so many things in common. You share similar values and priorities. You enjoy many of the same hobbies and leisure activities, and you even share a love for dogs and agree on letting that dog sleep in the bed with you. This seemingly perfect mate is a front runner for Mr. Right…the right online match, the right K & W dessert, and the best “first kiss” you ever had. As your relationship grows with Mr. Right, you continue to peel back the “onion layers” and you like what you discover, until that fateful night in November when you remove that onion layer that reveals your future life partner’s political affiliation. Underneath the next smelly onion layer is a pair of boxer briefs embroidered with a red, white, and blue elephant. Curious about this logo, you ask what it represents and he replies, “I am a huge contributor to the national Republican party. I thought you knew about my political views? Didn’t you notice the Romney/Ryan sticker glued to the rear bumper of my car?” Things had been moving right along smoothly until the discovery that you, a staunch Democrat, are sleeping with the enemy. You now realize that political views had never surfaced as a topic of conversation; sex was much more fun to talk about than fiscal policies. You may decide that this is not a deal breaker and forge ahead in the relationship, slipping out of the room during

70 /

political ads on TV and avoiding the evening news when together. But then you find a poster of Ronald Reagan on the inside of his closet door and a Sarah Palin screen saver on his office computer. Your closet door is adorned with a life-size Bill Clinton poster and your smart-phone background is a democratic donkey. This discovery has the potential to break Cupid’s arrow in two. Your love bubble is about to burst and you feel sick to your stomach about Mr. Finally

Right turning into Mr. Not Left. Can this relationship survive with a mule and an elephant in the same dating arena? You can stand to live next door to your Republican neighbor and you can work successfully with your political opposite on the job, but sleeping with the enemy may leave you with insomnia. Maybe you could switch your political affiliation to “Independent” which would allow you to sleep with whomever you want, as long as they vote? If you are unwilling to make this change in political view, then why not try some tips that may help your relationship survive until the next election? One option may be to try and change Mr. Right and convince him to align with your political views. Is changing him really the answer to relationship survival? You valued

everything else that he stood for up to this point in your relationship and thought he was Mr. Perfect. Why try to change him when it might be impossible to teach old elephants new tricks? You could always just ignore this difference in political views, stop volunteering for local democratic campaigns, or not exercise your right to vote. This type of November change is probably not your best choice. Another more viable option for any couple with good communication skills might be to discuss their views and try to understand why each party believes as they do, without being dogmatic or judgmental. Unless you are at the extreme right or left of the political spectrum, then you will likely find a majority of issues that you agree on, and that you have similar ideas for the country’s political future. For this to work, both parties should leave stubbornness (a potential “donkey” trait) and rigidity (what an elephant might possess) at the door of the bipartisan chambers. Even wars are sometimes ended by compromise. If the discussions fall short of a compromise, you might find yourself pasting a Bill and Hillary poster over his Ronald Reagan poster, sending a virus to his computer courtesy of the Democratic national party, or secretly adhering an Obama sticker on his car with Super Glue. This lack of bipartisan “reaching across the aisle” in political compromise could push you back square to one. The wonderful romance and giddy feeling of seeing Mr. Right every Friday night has evaporated. You are now hunting for a democratic Mr. Right online and sleeping alone with your dog, secure in the knowledge that your dog doesn’t care who you vote for in the upcoming elections. This leaves you with plenty of time to volunteer for your favorite Democratic candidate. You may not have a romantic man, but you are politically right.

e all have our valleys – the difficult times dealing with death, illness or disappointment. We face these struggles and more throughout our lives. Some say that counseling others is a calling; to listen to them and help guide them through the valleys of their lives. Kimberly Perry, a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (LPCA), is one with such a call on her life. "I really enjoy helping people work through these often challenging life experiences and move towards the highest level of wellness possible for each individual," said Kimberly.


Experience & Interests

Worth U N SofESouls LING Counseling

Kimberly has a special interest in working with people who are living with physical illness, whether chronic or terminal, and with caregivers. She interned last year as a counselor with the Department of Spiritual Care & Wholeness at Cone Health, counseling mental health patients, bariatric surgery patients, cancer patients, cancer survivors, and caregivers. During her experience working at Cone Health, Kimberly also worked with many people who were struggling or adjusting to life with various other illnesses. That experience, combined with some personal health experiences, "really brought to my attention the fact that the mental health needs of people living with physical illness are not always fully addressed; that patients and caregivers are an under-served population when it comes to addressing mental health needs," she explained. She found that these populations often experience stress, grief, depression, and anxiety, all directly

related to, or as a result of, their physical health. Other areas of Kimberly's experience and interest include stress management, women's health issues, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, spiritual concerns, life transitions, and wellness. Methods Kimberly’s methods include a combination of traditional talk therapy with mindfulness meditation, guided imagery and expressive art. "I really enjoy helping people learn to use these tools to improve their stress management and mental health," explained Kimberly, "and I also enjoy seeing the amazing insights that people can gain into themselves." Kimberly facilitates the cancer survivor group, "Finding Your New Normal" at the Cone Cancer Center in Greensboro, and also offers individual counseling and group counseling services at her Winston-Salem office. One such group is her support group for pelvic pain. "I learn so much from my clients and I feel it is a great honor to be able to be a witness to a small part of their life journey. The worth of every soul is great and everyone's story matters." - Kimberly Perry, MS, LPCA More About Kimberly Kimberly Perry graduated with a Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. As a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (LPCA) in North Carolina, Kimberly is under supervision while she works toward full Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) designation. She is currently serving on the Board of Directors for the Licensed Professional Counselors Association of North Carolina (LPCANC), and is also a member of the American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA), the American Counseling Association (ACA), and the Association for Creativity in Counseling (ACC). Kimberly is fluent in Spanish as well as English. She has been married for nearly 12 years and is grateful for her loving supportive husband.

“Even clutch handbags will embrace texture for the holidays,” she said. “Clutches with zippers, feathers and other textured elements will be hot for the cool weather months ahead. Clutches are perfect for carrying during the day, as well as at evening holiday events.” Another trend for the cool weather months will be the use of neutral tones for a monochromatic, sophisticated look. “Winter white or taupe in a winter weight, textured fabric will be one of the ‘in looks’ for the holidays,” Lara said. “If you want to give a gift that will be sure to please, buy something in a classic, neutral tone.”

Shop Lara’s Favorite Things for the Holidays! For many, November and December are filled with seemingly nonstop days of holiday parties and events. Office parties. Family gatherings. Social events. Evenings out on the town. Let’s face it – you’re going to need a lot of holiday clothes even before Santa arrives. No worries. Visit Lara’s Favorite Things, an upscale women’s clothing store on Burke Street in trendy downtown Winston-Salem, to find the perfect outfit. Best of all, many holiday fashions, including cocktail dresses, are available from Lara’s Favorite Things as Practically Yours rentals. “For the winter holidays, expect to see lots of texture in fabric and accessories,” Lara Carpenter of Lara’s Favorite Things said. “For example, a perfect outfit for holiday parties would be a cocktail dress featuring a sophisticated navy and black color palette, with a fun textural element thrown in: lace, sequins or even feathers!

Lara said that jewel tones, including sapphire blue and emerald green, are also popular colors for the winter. “People don’t dress up quite as much as they used to, even for holiday parties,” she added. “Great jeans with a dressy top in a jewel tone and heels or a boot create the perfect, more casual outfit for social events.” “People are always worried about buying someone a gift in the wrong size,” Lara said. “Scarves in neutrals, jewel tones or a fun pattern are great for holiday gift giving, and you don’t have to worry about the size. A nice piece of ‘statement jewelry’ also makes a great gift. You don’t need lots of jewelry to look great – just one really elegant, fashionable piece does the trick.” Want to make sure that Santa brings you the perfect gift in the right size, color and style? Stop by Lara’s Favorite Things and ask to create a holiday wish list. An elf from the shop will be happy to contact the special someone in your life to share your wish list and assist with purchases.

A wish list at Lara’s Favorite Things will ensure that you’re wearing your perfect new clothes on December 26 instead of standing in a long return line. Lara’s Favorite Things offers fun, hip jeans, dresses, jewelry, bags and accessories for women. Lara’s Favorite Things is located at 815 Burke Street beside Barnhill’s books and is open 10-6 Tuesdays through Fridays and 10-5 on Saturdays.

By Meghan E.W. Corbett ome aspects of life are easy to put off until we have time to take care of them. We can wait on a haircut, plan to start that exercise routine next year, clean the house tomorrow and so on. When everyday tasks leave us little time to take care of ourselves, some of the important things unfortunately get thrown to the back burner, but dental care should never be one of them. If you get a bad haircut, it’ll grow back; if you don’t exercise now, you might not fit into your favorite jeans this winter; and if you ignore the household chores, they will be there tomorrow. However, you only get one set of adult teeth, so if you ignore them today, they may not be around to ignore in the future.


The doctors and staff at Clemmons Family Dental can take care of the dental needs of every member of the family. “We offer a wide array of dental services and procedures,” said Shannon Reavis, Registered Dental Hygienist at Clemmons Family Dental. “Preventive care is the cornerstone of the practice, with the experienced hygiene team providing cleanings for adults and children, periodontal procedures, sealants and fluoride varnish for children. Drs. Turner and Chostner have many years of experience in restorative care, including fillings; crown and bridge restorations; cosmetic dental work, such as porcelain veneers; crowns and Zoom in-office whitening; implant crowns; root canals and basic oral surgery.” With nearly 40 years of practice, Clemmons Family Dental has perfected its focus on the best in patient care. “Dr. Jerry Chostner started the practice in the mid-1970s, and in the mid-1990s, Dr. Kirk Turner bought the practice,” said Reavis. “The two have continued to practice together ever since. Dr. Turner graduated from Loma Linda University in California for undergraduate and dental school. He has two adult children, enjoys reading, history and outdoor activities. Dr. Chostner attended Wake Forest University for undergrad and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for Dental School. He also has two adult children, and enjoys

78 /

traveling and fly fishing.” Together, the doctors and staff at Clemmons Family Dental have made a trip to the dentist enjoyable! “The practice strives to provide quality dental care in a friendly, comfortable setting for families,” said Reavis. “We try to explain patients’ options and help them choose what best suits their particular dental needs. We offer nitrous oxide (conscious) sedation and oral sedation, but the best approach is to provide enough positive experiences to help patients relax about coming to appointments. We recognize their fears, and talk to them to help them relax during the procedures. The doctors make sure people are comfortable before proceeding with their dental treatment.” In addition to the knowledge and training of the doctors, no dental practice would be successful without a strong staff supporting it. “The staff really is what makes our office special and stand out from others in the area,” said Reavis. “The staff is well-tenured; two of the hygienists have worked here since day one, and most have been here for more than 10 years. We all love getting to know our patients, and they become like family to us. We are friendly and enjoy coming to work. There are six hygienists, two dental assistants and four front-office staff. We all get to know patients on a firstname basis and love getting to know whole families.” If cost is an issue, Clemmons Family Dental has figured out how to help in that area, as well. “We accept dental insurance benefits and help estimate patients’ expected out-of-pocket costs,” said Reavis. “For those without insurance, we strive to deliver quality dentistry for a reasonable price. We can help provide payment plans, such as Care Credit, to make treatment affordable.” Clemmons Family Dental is located at 6301 Stadium Drive in Clemmons. For convenience, appointments as early 7 a.m. and lunchtime appointments from 12–2 p.m. are available. If you would like more information, visit the website at, email, or call 336.766.9111.

ision examinations are an important part of preventive health care. Many eye and vision problems have no obvious signs or symptoms. As a result, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye and vision problems are important for maintaining good vision and eye health, and when possible, preventing vision loss. A comprehensive examination may include, but is not limited to, the following tests: 1. Patient History - This helps to determine any symptoms the individual is experiencing, general health problems and medications taken. The doctor will also ask about any previous eye or health conditions you and your family members may have. Some health problems and medications, including diabetes, hypertension, systemic steroids and Plaquenil, may affect ocular health and vision. 2. Visual Acuity (VA) – As part of the testing, you are asked to read letters on distance reading charts. This evaluates how clearly each eye is seeing. The top number in the fraction is the standard distance at which testing is done, 20 feet. The bottom number is the smallest letter size you were able to read. "Normal" vision is 20/20. This means that the test subject sees the same line of letters at 20 feet that a normal person sees at 20 feet. 20/40 vision means that the test subject sees clearly at 20 feet what a normal person can see clearly from 40 feet away.

80 /

3. Preliminary Testing - This may include evaluation of specific aspects of visual function and eye health such as depth perception, color vision, eye muscle movements, peripheral or side vision and the way your pupils respond to light. 4. Refraction – This is conducted to determine the glasses prescription needed to compensate for any refractive error (nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism). 5. Eye Health Evaluation – Measurement of pressure within the eye is performed. Normal eye pressures range from 10 to 21 mm Hg. Anyone with eye pressure greater than 22 mm Hg could be at risk of developing glaucoma, although many people with normal pressure also develop glaucoma. External examination of the eye is done with a slit lamp microscope using bright light and magnification. Dilation drops should be used in order to allow the doctor to perform a thorough evaluation of the lens, retina and posterior section of the eye. This helps to better assess some ocular diseases, such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. 6. Supplemental Testing – Additional testing may be needed based on the results of the previous tests to confirm or rule out possible problems, to clarify uncertain findings, or to provide a more in-depth assessment. At the completion of the examination, any visual or eye health problems found will be addressed and treatment options will be explained.

Recommended Eye Exams For healthy pediatric patients, it is recommended by the American Optometric Association (AOA) that a child should have their eyes examined at six months old, three years old, before the child starts grade school and every two years thereafter. Children considered to be at risk for eye or visual development problems will need to be evaluated more frequently. For asymptomatic adult patients 18 to 60 years old, the AOA recommends eye exams every two years. Over the age of 61 years, yearly eye exams are strongly encouraged. Patients with systemic conditions (diabetes, hypertension, etc.), contact lens wearers, ocular diseases, etc. are followed more closely.

VO I C E A Story About Finding a Solution By Wendee Goodman n the last few years, I have come to know a woman named Christine. Many people will say they love animals, but Christine puts that love into selfless action. Christine’s love of cats, in particular, began in her senior year of college when she adopted a cat named Frisco. From that moment on, Christine has always had a house full of cats. Several years ago she moved into a new area and began to notice a few “stray” cats near the dumpster in her neighborhood. One day she noticed a momma cat with four kittens and she said that was the moment she felt her heart break for these cats. However, just like everyone else, she drove past them, knowing that they were uncared for and probably hungry. Christine knew that most people find stray cats a nuisance and just wished they would just disappear. Christine felt like she had enough going on in her life and she just didn’t need to add to her workload by being concerned about the stray cats in her neighborhood. A few months went by and she noticed three more kittens hanging around the dumpster in her neighborhood. At that point, she decided she needed to do something before the number of cats grew to the point that care for them would become impossible. She began to do research and discovered that there was, in fact, a lot she could do to help the cats and help her neighborhood.

cleaning, left ear notched (a sign that the cat has been trapped and spayed or neutered) and micro-chipped. To date, Christine has spayed or neutered over 23 cats in her area and has placed 7 kittens from feral cat litters in homes. In addition to the personal expense she incurs, she also cares for the feral cat colony on a daily basis. Every evening at the same time she feeds the cats, gives them clean water, and provides a shelter to live in. She has worked with one colony for over five years and has built a trusting relationship with the cats. Some of the cats will allow her to touch and love on them and now she is doing a monthly flea and deworming, as well as getting medical assistance for cats when they get hurt or sick. Christine said, “My favorite time of the day is when I feed and spend time with the feral cats.” Currently, Christine has five cats of her own which includes two cats that were previously feral kittens. Additionally, she takes care of eight feral cats in the neighborhood and, on the rare occasion when a new one shows up, she traps the cat, takes it to the vet and then welcomes the cat into her little feral family. Christine told me that educating the neighborhood is quite challenging because many people don’t understand the nature of feral cats. Most people just want them out of sight and out of mind and they mistakenly think that if she didn’t care for them, they would move on somewhere else. The truth is that if Christine didn’t take care of them, the colony of cats would grow exponentially and the possibility for diseases and many other challenges would rise for the neighborhood.

The cats in her neighborhood were actually feral cats. Feral cats are the offspring of other feral cats or stray cats that have been abandoned or become lost. Feral cats have not been around humans and, for the most I learned that people like Christine help animals and help people. I part, cannot be adopted by people; therefore they know the cats are grateful in their own way and perhaps now as present a unique challenge to neighborhoods and cities. people become more educated about feral cats, people will begin to Christine found that the best way to help the feral cats help and appreciate special people like Christine. and her neighborhood was to Trap, Neuter and Return If you are aware of a local feral cat colony near you, and would like to (also known as TNR) the cats to the area they were help, there are several local organizations that can assist you. Check living in. Initially, Christine was able to find some the internet for more information. financial help, but now she takes care of most of the expense herself, along with some assistance from a local vet. Christine traps any feral cats that come to “Caring for the feral cats allows me to just forget everything that the area she is caring for and then takes the cat to a vet is going on and just enjoy their little furry faces!” ~Christine for spaying, neutering, shots, flea treatment, ear

THIS IS the… PERFECT CHRISTMAS TREE!!!!!” There may not be a better way to get into the holiday spirit than to trek up to our mountain counties for a “choose ‘n cut” experience. Our family tradition includes a trip to the mountains to choose and chop down our Christmas tree for the year. We go the first weekend in Advent, which is the beginning of the church season that directs us to prepare our hearts for the coming of the Christ child. This is usually the weekend after Thanksgiving weekend. Our church tradition keeps us celebrating (and we leave our tree up) until the Sunday of Epiphany in January, when, according to religious stories, the Wise Men arrived in Bethlehem to honor the newborn Christ child. So by cutting our own tree, we get the freshest tree available and it lasts for the month we have it up and decorated in our living room. The trip to the mountains to cut our tree takes us back to a simpler time. The scent of Fraser Firs all around in the cool, thin air that holds only nature’s symphony...well, that and the voices of kids with their families enjoying some very special time together. Now, I realize that many of us use artificial trees, and since I am allergic to pine and have to take allergy medication from the moment we begin thinking about our Christmas tree until after the house is vacuumed several times following the day the tree goes out for recycling, I understand the practicality of an artificial tree. So if you do fall into the “fake tree” category, consider a drive up to the mountains before Christmas for these other reasons:

One of the tree farms we visited last year actually has a lovely art and local craft gallery on its property. The array of gift ideas from that one gallery is unique. They also sell a wine bottled with their name and labeled with a design by the artist who owns the gallery. There is a beautiful old, red sleigh on the gallery porch where a real live Santa awaits children to sit on his lap and share their “wish list” with. Now if THAT isn’t a memory maker, I don’t know what is! A visit to Ashe County hosts a delicious country style restaurant that is a wealth of atmosphere and heavenly smells. Actually, I think my kids enjoyed the meal there as much as they did romping around tree farms looking for the perfect tree. It’s a big enough place that we used to go with a church group, so we added to the family experience that way as well. Go up and enjoy the annual Sparta Christmas Parade. It will serve to remind you of how community can be a big part of Christmas. One year, we accidentally got caught in the traffic that was part of the parade and got to slowly drive down Main Street with our tree on top of our SUV, waving to the crowds! I felt like a beauty queen and Santa all rolled up into one. Visit the Alleghany County Fairgrounds on December 3rd and take in the Christmas Arts and Crafts Fair. Our North Carolina Mountains are a haven of gifted artists that offer unique crafts. Many are made from repurposed items and provide an ultimate “buy local” experience. For more information, please visit this website: Hope to see you in the mountains in a few weeks!

for the Holidays By Meghan E.W. Corbett It seems like only a few days ago everyone was complaining about the unusually hot summer. October and November flew by and here we are, decorating, shopping and making all the necessary plans for the biggest holiday of the year – Christmas. No matter what traditions exist in your home, it is estimated that nearly 20 billion holiday cards, letters and packages will be mailed this year alone; and if you have ever tried to mail a package around this time of year, you probably feel as though you have been in line with most of them. Instead of fighting the crowds at the Post Office, let Goin’ Postal show you how it’s done. “We opened in Clemmons in May of 2007 with the goal of serving the Clemmons and surrounding communities with an array of shipping and related services at the lowest cost to the customer, and we have grown each year,” said Owner Vic Bragman. “Goin' Postal is a franchise that began in Zephyrhills, Florida, in 2002, when MJ and Marcus Price opened one small store on Main Street, which was very community oriented and quickly became very popular and successful.” With more than 260 stores around the country today, Goin’ Postal has grown to be a popular name in the shipping world. Not only is Goin’ Postal more convenient and efficient, it can be cheaper as well. “The biggest misconception about our store is that FedEx is more expensive than the Post Office,” said Vic. “If you are shipping a package that is more than around 7-8 lbs, it becomes cheaper to ship it FedEx Ground than US Post Office and, with

FedEx, it can be tracked every step of the way with up to $100 of insurance included at no extra charge. We also ship through UPS and are now Approved Shippers through the US Postal Service and provide nearly all of the Post Office services, including Priority Mail, Certified Return Receipt and International if you prefer that route.” The stress of the holidays can be daunting, so this year, give Goin’ Postal the opportunity to prove to you that shipping presents and goodies to friends and family can be an annual task you look forward to tackling! “We like to help people make the holidays simpler by suggesting the right boxes they would need or having them bring their items to our store so we can pack them securely at no extra charge,” said Vic. “If you need help carrying packages from the car, please come in and get us, or if you call ahead, we'll be happy to help you bring them in. We also try to help customers reduce their shipping charges. Sometimes by repacking items in a smaller box or cutting a box down, we can save you a great deal of money. We continue to have a lot of nice and interesting customers here, many of whom have been our customers since we opened here behind Panera Bread five and a half years ago. We look forward to serving your packing and shipping needs and will strive to provide the best service we can, and we thank you for your patronage.” Goin’ Postal is located at 6255 TownCenter Drive in Clemmons.

Career Notes Q By Elaine S. Wilder, CPRW, CEIP


inding a job is a job! Think of it as a game – if you know the rules, you can play. Having been in the business of résumé writing and interview coaching since 1989, I have observed many changes in hiring practices and career marketing tools (the résumé, curriculum vitae, cover letter, reference page, salary history page and portfolios). Below are some questions asked by my clients. I believe the answers may be helpful to you if you are a job seeker.

Thoughts become things… Choose the good ones!

I’m in my mid-50s and unexpectedly having to find employment. I have an excellent work history but am concerned that my age may be of concern to a hiring manager. What do you suggest?


The number one way for folks to find jobs these days is to network. Most people can sympathize / empathize with your situation as they have experienced it themselves or know of one or more people going through the same thing. You have been in a supervisory role. If you have maintained contact with employees you supervised, you may want to give them a call or e-mail to touch base and let them know you are looking for employment opportunities. There could be an opening where they work, and they would be glad to give you a referral to the hiring manager, or they may be the hiring manager. Focus on your experience and skills, not your age – positives, not negatives.


I have heard there are government jobs available. What do I need to do?

Follow the federal résumé criteria to the letter! There are books out there outlining these procedures – be sure to use the latest version as changes have been made in the last couple of years. Actually, the best way is to hire a certified federal résumé writer. They know the procedure, formatting and pertinent questions to ask you before they write your résumé. For a listing of certified writers, you can go to and click on CPRW writers. I can personally recommend Diane Hudson Burns at


Do I need to fill in an application if I attach my résumé?

Yes. It is wise to prepare or have your résumé prepared by a professional résumé writer first. Do not print See Résumé on the application. Use your résumé as a go-by when you fill out the application so you log in the correct dates and information. Usually, applications ask for your references. Since references do not go on a résumé, you may need to have a list of four to five references written down, including names, job titles, company name, addresses and day phone numbers so you will be prepared to include that information on an application. Use black ink unless the application calls for blue ink. Print – no cursive writing – on the application.



When I key in my name and contact information at the top of my résumé and cover letter, my e-mail turns blue. Why isn’t it black like the other print?

In Word, blue is the default. Since your e-mail address does need to be in black, you will need to change the default. In Word or other software programs, search in Help to show you how to change the auto-format.

A Twist on a Traditional Thanksgiving Dinner By Elisa D. Wallace With Thanksgiving right around the corner, many are beginning to think about their Thanksgiving menu. For a number of us, this means gathering the traditional recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. While these recipes are plenty enjoyable, for those wanting to try new Thanksgiving recipes this year, Forsyth Woman offers variations on the beloved staples. Impress family and loved ones by incorporating Tangy Mashed a few, or all, of these dishes into a fresh Thanksgiving menu. Enjoy the look of 2 lbs. whole russet or satisfying surprise as loved ones savor the innovative yet delectable flavors. Yukon gold potatoes


½ - 1 stick butter

Tuscan Roast Turkey

1 cup sour cream Salt and pepper

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh rosemary (plus 1 teaspoon finely chopped, plus 5 sprigs for roasting)

Green Beans with Lemon and Shallots

2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh sage (plus 5 sprigs for roasting)

Fresh green beans

2 tablespoons finely grated orange zest

A couple of shallots

1 tablespoon fennel seeds, coarsely chopped

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 dried, crumbled chili

Directions Rinse the beans and trim the ends. Slice the shallots and remove outer layer. Zest the lemon. Squeeze the juice from the leftover lemon. Steam the beans until they turn bright green and are barely tender. In the meantime, in a large frying pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Sauté the shallots until they begin to brown. Add green beans and cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until the beans are tender. Stir in lemon zest and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.

1 minced garlic clove 1 turkey breast (about 7 pounds), deboned, trimmed, and butterflied Salt and ground pepper 8 ounces bacon, thinly sliced 1/2 cup dry white wine 2 cups turkey or chicken stock Directions Stir 3 tablespoons oil, parsley, coarsely chopped rosemary, chopped sage, zest, fennel seeds, chili, and garlic in a bowl. Rub all over turkey and season with salt and pepper. Place in a shallow baking pan; cover. Refrigerate at least 4 hours (or overnight). Preheat oven to 375. Let turkey stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Put herb sprigs into pan. Roll up turkey. Cover evenly with bacon, and tie with kitchen twine; return to pan. Drizzle with remaining tablespoon oil; season with pepper. Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the turkey registers 160 degree, about 1 1/2 hours. Transfer turkey to a cutting board; let rest 20 minutes. Slice turkey; transfer to a platter. Serve with herbed pan sauce. **For herbed pan sauce--transfer pan juices to a bowl. Heat pan on top of stove over medium heat. Add wine, and cook, stirring, until reduced by half. Stir in stock, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until slightly thickened. Stir in finely chopped rosemary, and season with salt and pepper.

One lemon

Directions Cover 2 pounds whole russet or Yukon gold potatoes with cold salted water. Let simmer 45 minutes. Drain, peel and mash with 1/2 to 1 stick butter. Add 1 cup of sour cream, and salt and pepper; mash until smooth and fluffy.

Lavender Carrots

Salt and pepper Carrots

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil Salt and pepper Dried lavender Directions Peel the carrots and slice them lengthwise into quarters. Since carrots are usually long, it helps to cut them in half to better fit them onto the baking dish and, later, the plates. Arrange them in a single layer on a baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil then sprinkle with salt, pepper and lavender. Bake at 375 for 20 to 25 minutes or until they’re tender, but not mushy.

Orange Glazed Pumpkin Cookies 2-1/2 cups flour

1-1/2 cups granulated sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened

1 tsp. baking powder

1 cup canned pumpkin

1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

1 large egg

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. vanilla

Directions **Orange Glaze (can be drizzled over warm cookies) Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease baking sheets. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and salt in medium bowl. Beat sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until well blended. Beat in pumpkin, egg and vanilla until smooth. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Drizzle with Orange Glaze if desired. **Orange Glaze: Combine 1-1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar, 2 to 3 tablespoons orange juice and 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel in medium bowl until smooth.

Meals-on-Wheels NeedsYou!


ith the senior population in Forsyth County projected to increase by 100% between the years 2000 and 2030, Senior Services is preparing to reach more seniors in need. Thanks to the help of volunteers, Senior Services delivers hot, nutritious meals to more than 1,200 local seniors Monday through Friday. But the demands are growing.That’s why WE NEED YOU to help get Meals-on-Wheels to those that need food. Meals-on-Wheels relies on more than 1,700 community volunteers to deliver meals to homebound seniors. Last year’s successful campaign to recruit 100 new volunteers in 100 days met, for the short term (and only for the short term), the demand for new volunteers to refill the ranks when volunteers retire. With so many seniors depending on the meal-delivery service, volunteers are needed for the task of delivering these meals. Since 1962, when the program began here, more than 4.77 million meals have been served. It is often said that the food nourishes the body and the visits of the volunteers delivering the meals nourish the soul. The rewards of volunteering are immeasurable, as most

94 /

current volunteers will tell you. Imagine the satisfaction of hearing words like these: “I am 84 years old this year. Some days I would not eat a balanced diet if it weren't for Meals-on-Wheels. I eat and enjoy every bite. I thank each of you for the part you have in making this possible.” With your help, Senior Services’ Meals-on-Wheels program can continue to deliver meals to the at-risk, often frail, homebound elderly in need of food. For some recipients, it may be the only meal they have that day, and for others, the volunteer’s face may be the only one they see. And speaking of the volunteers, one meal recipient said, “When they bring the meals, they are really demonstrating what it is to serve one another with gladness—thanks so much and God bless you all!” The need for volunteers is critical, especially in the Kernersville area. If you are interested and able to deliver meals once a week, once a month or even once a quarter, please call Leslie Smith, Volunteer Coordinator, Meals-on-Wheels at (336)721-6910 or e-mail to let her know you're interested in volunteering.

• Don’t go to the grocery store unless you’ve got the time to prepare your produce and meats when you get home. I usually budget between 1 to 1 ½ hours for this task. Cutting and chopping before the produce goes in the fridge is the only tried-and-true method I’ve ever found for making sure I actually eat all the fresh produce I buy. And when it’s time to cook dinner, I’m done in a fraction of the time because I’ve already done the bulk of the work. • Consider the order in which you prepare your fruits and vegetables. Simple things that just need to be rinsed before they are eaten go first, then things that need to be peeled and chopped but aren’t particularly messy next, leafy vegetables and broccoli are last, before moving on to the meats. A suggested order might be: • Cherry tomatoes, grapes, apples, peaches, etc. These are foods that I’m just going to clean before I eat and don’t require peeling or cutting. • Celery – I’m a celery junkie, especially with hummus. It’s an easy vegetable to clean so it goes next to the cutting board.


ctually – that’s not true. I love to cook. I hate to clean up. But, I hear the “I hate to cook” refrain so much from my friends that I know it’s a popular sentence, especially from working moms who grow frustrated trying to cook meals for their families. They don’t have time, they don’t have energy, and they have a household of picky eaters that make cooking such a challenge that it’s no longer enjoyable. I’m raising my hand over here – been there, done that! This year, I’ve put into practice some steps that have really helped make meal preparation easier. Consider these ideas: • Write a menu. It doesn’t have to be elaborate or set in stone, but instead of making a list of random ingredients, choose ingredients that you know you’ll use for a specific purpose. Even better – try to create a menu where some of the ingredients are shared between recipes so that you’ll have less waste or spoilage. After a few weeks of this, you’ll have several ready-made grocery lists based on the menus you’ve created. • Write in your cookbooks and adjust recipes as needed, especially if your family doesn’t like leftovers. If the recipe feeds a family of four and there are just two of you – cut it in half. (I’ve also used this trick to keep track of Weight Watcher points on my favorite recipes.) • Plan for investment cooking, especially in the fall and winter, since soups and stews are so fantastic to freeze! You can freeze in plain old Mason jars. I also recommend Ziploc vacuum bags. They are inexpensive alternatives to standard food savers and work just as well. Double recipes and freeze the extra in Ziploc Vacuum bags for a quick home-cooked meal when you don’t have time to cook! Bonus tip: If you’re planning to freeze breads, cookies, pasta, or other soft items, arrange them on wax paper and let them harden in the freezer before vacuum sealing them shut!

• Cucumbers, zucchini, squash, carrots – vegetables that I want peeled and chopped go next. See? My cutting board is still relatively clean, very little debris. • Chop the peppers next. Those seeds will go everywhere! • Time to rinse the cutting board before moving on to leafy vegetables. • Broccoli is the last veggie on my list. • Then, after a quick rinse of the cutting board, it’s on to the meats. I also believe in my husband’s adage about using “the right tool for the job.” (Though I think he really regrets ever saying that to me because it gives me the perfect excuse to buy more Pampered Chef products for my kitchen!) In all seriousness, I do believe that the right cooking tools can make a huge difference for the cook. If you have the proper equipment, you’ll find your job gets much easier. Just two examples: My salad spinner is a must have when I’m preparing our fruits and vegetables for the week as it spins out excess moisture that causes veggies to grow soggy or limp after a few days. I no longer buy shredded cheese because I use my cheese graters (and store the unused blocks in Ziploc Vacuum bags!). It’s cheaper, I use less cheese, and my cheese lasts longer. Being prepared is the best way to tackle cooking, especially if you have a lot of obstacles working against you, i.e., lack of time or picky eaters. Need inspiration?

Reality TV – Why We (OK, Why I) Watch By Vonda Henderson Remember when TV was all about actors and actresses playing a role and your favorite shows were on the air for a long time? Where did they all go? I don’t recall when reality shows crept into our TVs and took up residency. Given the reality that some of them expose, they should have stayed under whatever rock they came from. There are some reality shows, however, with good commercial value. . . American Idol has a strong following and is the subject of many a coffee break. Careers have been launched and resulted in highly successful artists. The auditions with those unfortunates having more my caliber of voice (i.e., couldn’t carry a tune in a bucket without spilling it all) are alternatively funny and painful to watch. I suppose Survivor falls within that category as well; although I confess I don’t get it at all. Roughing it with a bunch of strangers, all the game-playing – it has little appeal to me.

singers, race car drivers, etc. Football players must be a lot more graceful than we ever thought given the number of winners from that sport. Who knew? Plus, we get to look at Maks and Derek! Okay, now for the opposing side, which seems to be the recurring theme for many reality shows. Bridezillas immediately comes to mind along with a question to the groom --why, why are you marrying this person? I confess that I watch this one occasionally just to see how outlandish the bride can get – some cross the line so many times it’s a wonder there are any guests or bridal party at all. Where do they find these people and why would they want to share their endless tantrums and meltdowns on national TV? There must be a massive paycheck coming their way. I wonder how long some of these marriages last. Maybe, all the way to the bank! We’ve all heard and read about difficult mother-in-laws, but have you seen Monster in

And let’s not forget Dancing with the Stars which has brought together many sentimental favorites, former athletes,

Laws? During the twenty minutes I watched, that particular mother-in-law threw a remote control at the counselor. After that, a session in which they threw a large ball to each other stating a truth or feeling didn’t seem like a good idea to me. The aforementioned mother-in-law had quite an arm on her. Then, there’s the entire Bachelor / Bachelorette genre. Let’s face it – the success rate for these shows is terrible. But season after season, we see a parade of hopeful men or women vying for the one perfect person for them. Of course, there’s always the resident villain to keep everyone stirred up. I bet if you polled watchers, most want to see who takes out that one person that nobody likes. Adults aren’t the only one getting into the act. Have you seen Toddlers and Tiaras? This is presented as a show about children’s beauty pageants; however, there is an abundance of temper fits, crying/whining, and general behavior that would put most in timeout. The kids really act up, too! It’s difficult to say who behaves worse – the stage parent(s) or the kids. Either way, it’s a weekly train wreck for the watching. So, why do we waste our time on these reality shows? Maybe we watch to remind ourselves that, thankfully, we’re in better shape than we thought. Hurrah!! And amen!!!

By Meghan E.W. Corbett Holiday shopping can be stressful! Driving all around town, fighting crowded stores and maneuvering through horrendous traffic does not exactly put people in the spirit of the season. Fortunately, the Junior League of Winston-Salem has a solution to our annual dilemma – the 2012 Boutique Shopping Event! This year marks a re-vamp of the previously held Boo-tique in late October to an event more geared toward mistletoe and candy canes. “The name of the event was changed this year when we decided to move the date later in the year in hopes of catering to the needs of more holiday shoppers,” said Elizabeth Myers, 2012 Boutique Chair. “Since we moved the date, we are no longer close to Halloween and felt that the old name would be confusing for shoppers. We also wanted to be able to take advantage of all of the fun events we could plan around a holiday theme!”

of Winston-Salem President-Elect Teresa Inman. “The Junior League of WinstonSalem started by creating a task force of two members, Heather Smith and Jane Potter, in 2007. This task force researched other markets and their successes and made a recommendation to the Junior League leadership that Winston-Salem and the local Junior League could benefit from, and should pursue, a holiday market. A committee of three chairs, a sustainer advisor and

This year’s pre-Boutique shopping event’s theme is “Bubbles, Baubles and Bags,” and is not to be missed! There will be a fine jewelry raffle with pieces from Windsor Jewelers and Schiffman's, as well as a designer handbag silent auction, including designers such as Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton and Botkier. Advanced tickets to the event are available for $30 or four for $100; tickets at the door are $35. All those attending “Bubbles, Baubles and Bags” will receive a free weekend-long shopping pass for the Boutique.

The third annual event will take place Friday, November 30th through Sunday, December 2nd at the Benton Convention center located at 480 North Cherry Street in Winston-Salem. “This event caters to anyone and everyone who likes to shop,” said Myers. “We have a wide variety of vendors lined up to ensure one-stop shopping for everyone on people’s list.”

corporate solicitation chair were placed for two-year positions to develop and plan out the event, which was first held in October 2010.”

“The holiday market has been a fairly common fundraiser for Junior Leagues across the nation,” said Junior League

The two years of planning really paid off, and the first two events were wonderful successes! It is every hope

106 /

that the third annual event will be just as beneficial to the efforts of the Junior League. “With just under 1,000 members and 89 years of history, the Junior League of Winston-Salem is committed to making this holiday market the premiere shopping event in the city,” said Myers. “This event, along with other fundraisers, makes it possible for the Junior League of Winston-Salem to support and promote many projects throughout the WinstonSalem/Forsyth County community.”

Shopping hours for “Bubbles, Baubles, and Bags” will be 6-9pm. Shopping hours for the remainder of the weekend will be 10am-6pm on Saturday, and 11am-5pm on Sunday.

Wagonmasters: Capturing a Bygone Era of Americana By Kristi Johnson Marion


enjoy a good documentary. Add in local flavor, nostalgia, whimsy and humor, and I'm completely hooked. Such is the case with Wagonmasters, a documentary film about the heyday and fall of the American station wagon, produced by Sam Smartt and Chris Zaluski of the Wake Forest University Documentary Film Program. The idea for the film was sparked as Zaluski was reading an article in "Fortune" magazine about the end of the station wagon era as Volvo decided to end production of station wagons in 2011. Their research revealed that the president of the American Station Wagon Owners Association, Tim Cleary, lived in nearby Charlotte, North Carolina, and decided there would be little risk or expense in paying him a visit to discuss the idea of a documentary. With Cleary's wealth of information, connections and colorful sense of humor, "We knew 20 minutes into the meeting that we had ourselves a film," said Zaluski. I am not a car buff by any stretch, but I highly recommend this film, not only to car enthusiasts, but to anyone who loves Americana, whose family ever owned a station wagon, and anyone who loves to laugh. For me, just the term "station wagon" conjures up visions of the Brady Bunch piling in their '70's faux-woody station wagon and surfer dudes loading their boards atop a wagon, so I knew going in that this film had great potential – and Wagonmasters did not disappoint. In the film, Tim Cleary states, "You have to have a strong self-image to drive a station wagon." The film bore this point out again and again as it takes viewers across the country to meet

108 /

proud station wagon owners, all of which were "characters" demonstrating both their individuality and great senses of humor. The audience laughed so hard throughout the show, one might have thought that we were watching the entirety of National Lampoon’s Vacation, rather than just the cameo appearance the movie’s classic corny station wagon made in the Wagonmasters film. Winston-Salemites might recognize local Stephanie Lovett, or at least her "PeaceWagon" – the navy blue Volvo station wagon covered with colorful quotations of peace. Other local influences include the outstanding soundtrack of the film, which includes

five songs by Caleb Caudle & the Bayonets of Winston-Salem, and Naked Gods of Boone, NC. The filmmakers have been "overwhelmed" by the warm reception for their film debut here in WinstonSalem and hope it continues as they make their film festival premiere at the Hot Springs Film Festival and attempt to get into many others. Wagonmasters captures a bygone era of American culture and those who remain nostalgic for it. Smartt recalled riding in the back of his family station wagon as a kid before his parents traded it for an SUV. "I'm just now realizing the huge hole that left in my heart," he joked at the screening.

By Susan Ott

ust out of an alcohol rehabilitation program, Linda, a 46-year-old mother of three, needed a place to live but lacked enough money for rent. Crisis Control Ministry’s Breaking the Cycle Program was there for her and helped with finances, housing and education. Teen mom Carmina was struggling to stay in high school while raising a child. A bilingual school social work aide helped her complete her education. Mary, on a low income, wanted a better job, but needed coaching on interview skills and attire. Dress for Success provided the clothes and the skills. These programs, and many others, were funded with grants from The Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem, which uses the combined financial power of its 800 members to make an impact on women’s needs in Forsyth County.


The Women’s Fund is part of a growing worldwide trend of women who pool their collective resources and form funds specifically to address issues facing women and girls. The Women’s Fund members choose and fund the projects that they believe can address the root causes of such issues as poverty, unemployment, lack of education and low selfesteem. The funds are based on the belief that women themselves know best how to determine their needs. They invest in women and girls as a strategy to advance financial stability, education, health, and nutrition, and to reduce maternal and infant mortality both in the U.S. and abroad. Since 2007, The Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem, has awarded 49 grants totaling more than $740,000 in such areas as financial literacy, youth education and development, health, and teen pregnancy prevention. Over 90% of the grants have been to support women and girls with low or no income. Not only do the members of The Women’s Fund contribute financially to the grants that are made, they actually determine which organizations receive the funding, as the members vote on the grant recipients each year. The Women’s Fund is part of The Women’s Funding Network (WFN), which educates and connects more than 160 women’s funds around the world. According to WFN, “When you invest in a woman, you invest in a family...communities and, ultimately…whole nations.” Michele Ozumba, President and CEO of The Women’s Funding Network, and former head of the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention, will be the keynote speaker at The Women’s Fund’s annual luncheon on November 28 and will speak about the power of women’s philanthropy. The Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem’s 2012 grant recipients will also be announced at the lunch. Wanda Starke, WXII television news anchor, will host the event.

Run the Turkey Derby to Help Kids!

The Hillsdale Sunrise Rotary Club* will hold its inaugural 5K race on Saturday, November 17th. The Turkey Derby 5K will feature a 3.1 mile USATF-certified course within the gates of Bermuda Run. The race will begin and end at the Bermuda Run Country Club. This is a family event and all are encouraged to attend. Turkey Derby proceeds will benefit two local Davie County children’s programs. Since its inception in 2010, Hillsdale Sunrise Rotary has partnered with the Backpack Buddies program to provide book bags filled with non-perishable food items to at-risk students needing food to eat on weekends. Funds raised through this event will enable Backpack Buddies to expand to reach more children in Davie County elementary schools.

112 /

Event funds will also support new Davie County GO FAR Clubs. GO FAR stands for Go Out For A Run and is a comprehensive fitness program for children. It promotes physical activity, healthy eating, and good character. The goal of the program is to empower children to make healthy lifestyle choices that will be sustained throughout their entire life. Specifically, GO FAR teaches children to set and reach goals, and to complete a 5K road race. Davie County GO FAR will be offered to children in select Davie County schools beginning this fall. *Hillsdale Sunrise Rotary Club is a member of Rotary International, the world’s oldest service organization, featuring nearly 35,000 clubs and over 1.2 million members. Rotary’s motto is “service above self.”

A Family Time – A Family Gift How does Hospice fit in? By Ann Gauthreaux

“I wish we had called sooner.” That’s what nearly 90% of all families say once they have embraced the support of hospice. And that’s why Hospice & Palliative CareCenter is writing this article. And that’s why we are offering you a gift… November often feels like the official launch of the holiday season. Autumn has settled in, and many people turn their attention to holiday plans, time with family and friends, and gifts. What most people don’t know is that November is also National Hospice Month. It’s a time to spare a few minutes to learn more about the compassionate care provided to others who might not have the gift of time to celebrate another holiday. At Hospice & Palliative CareCenter, we want November to be a time for both giving thanks and for raising awareness about the importance of understanding choices for end of life care. We also want to offer you and your loved ones a very special gift--the gift of peace of mind. As we approach this season of thanksgiving, we go in search of gifts for friends and family. Why not consider the most cherished and valuable gift of all--the gift of peace of mind. It doesn’t require wrapping paper or a fancy ribbon. Yet it will require an open and honest conversation with family and loved ones about your wishes and plans for the kind of care you want as you age--the care you would want if you were no longer able to speak for yourself.

114 /

It could be one of the most important and thoughtful gifts you give your loved ones. After all, we plan ahead for the birth of a baby, a graduation, a wedding or a vacation. Yet we seldom take the time to plan ahead for the last chapters in our life. While it can be a difficult, we can help guide the conversation. Hospice & Palliative CareCenter professionals encourage you to talk with your loved ones so that you are prepared to manage life’s changes. As we guide you through those conversations, you will be creating both a Living Will and a Health Care Power of Attorney (called Advance Directives). Your documents will also be notarized and made official. This service is offered free of charge. That’s our gift to you this holiday season. Many of us, as we think about the quality of life we want to experience in our final months, would want to include hospice care in our planning. It is important to get to know about the special kind of care offered by hospice and how to select the hospice that is best for you.

Move It and Lose It Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

By Kelly Melang


he cold winter months loom and every single excuse to NOT do what you are supposed to do runs through your head as you face walking out the door in rain or snow.

Rather than talking yourself into it, if you want different, then you have to do different. “You don’t give yourself the choice,” says April Hartsook, Personal Trainer and in charge of Forsyth Woman’s Move It and Lose It Campaign. “You plan on going and you go.” “My goal is to help people embrace change, to take the plunge, to go for it,” says Hartsook. “For some, it’s a small change – they want to get a little more fit and want to target some areas. For others, it’s the life change – it’s when they know they cannot take where they are any more and are ready to do different. I want them to realize that they are not alone, that I am here to not just help them, but to connect them with others and create a support group.” “Go outside!” said our mothers, and Hartsook couldn’t agree more. There are so many more benefits to exercising outside than just the fresh air. Many studies agree that outdoor exercising decreases tension and increases mental alertness. “Get out of the sweaty gym and work an hour with me,” says Hartsook. “Our classes are scheduled during the day and on evenings, always outside. Classes include beginner and intermediate levels, as well as Couch to 5K or Half Marathon programs. Some of my girls are training for the Mistletoe Half Marathon in December.” As the seasons change, the desire to become sedentary comes with the cooler weather. “This is not the time to sit around. This not the time to blow all your hard work at the holiday parties and family gatherings. Make the commitment to do different – keep that hour of scheduled exercise. I laugh when people tell me it’s cold outside – add a few layers and you’ll be just fine. After an hour with me they really don’t notice the weather,” adds Hartsook. What’s a good approach to layering on a cold day? “Always start with some type of moisture wicking base, meaning when you sweat the material

This is not the time to sit around. is made to whisk the sweat away from your skin to the outside layer, keeping you from getting a chill. Add a warmth layer and finally a light jacket and you are ready. I always say it’s better to over dress during the colder months; it’s better to have to remove a layer than to freeze. Remember the two places where you lose heat the most: your head and your hands. Keep them covered and you’ll stay warm,” adds Hartsook. “Another benefit of exercising outside is you move away from the weight machines. Body weight training is the most effective for overall health and weight management. A body weight squat uses the same leg muscles, but muscles from your core to your toes are engaged as you work to

stay balanced and upright. You’ll gain more and not have to worry about waiting in line for equipment,” says Hartsook. “Being outside helps you perform better, because you are more focused,” continues Hartsook. “You’ll work 2 to 10 percent harder outside just with wind resistance. And being outside means that you cannot zone out like you do at the gym, which helps coordination between nervous system and muscles, not to mention feeling more energized,” laughs Hartsook. Wanting Different and Doing Different require change. Take a look at what makes you uneasy in your life, and decide - do you want something different? Then call April Hartsook and getting started on doing different.

By Raven Dear Fans and Friends, Ahhh – the weekly riding lesson with the apple lady and her cohorts. Who knew that Tuesdays could inspire such dread? I’m sure you think I’m overreacting, but try and see things from my perspective. This is supposed to be a horseback riding lesson, not a talk show/fashion war/therapy session. First of all, when the apple lady arrives at the barn, she barges into my stall – my home and sanctuary – as if she owned the place, without even the courtesy of a knock. She then trusses me up in my halter and leads me up the path to the main barn (heaven forbid if I should try to taste a morsel of grass along the way). Once in the barn, the ceaseless chatter commences among the cohorts as they prepare to ride. First, they talk about so-andso’s cousin’s wedding and then about so-andso’s hateful boss and then about what so-andso saw on Facebook. The vast majority of the clamor is about non-equine related activities (counterintuitive, I know, but there you have it). Tacking up is interesting because if I didn’t practically put the bridle onto myself, the apple lady would have the bit somewhere up around my ears. There is also the absurd process of ensuring that the saddle pad chosen matches the shirt

of the rider. The only moment of silence the entire night is when one of the cohorts has been tacky enough to clash her shirt with her saddle pad – the others look at the poor “ugly Betty” silently, like she showed up in acid-washed jeans or something, until she stammers out a satisfactory excuse like, “I just came from work and didn’t have anything else!” There is actually one cohort with 11 saddle pads, which ensures her shirt ALWAYS matches, and that she will never be called out for a barn fashion crime. Finally, we proceed to the riding ring where the prattle continues until I feel like my ears are going to bleed. Regardless, I dutifully walk, trot, canter and jump when requested, but also suffer the unwarranted sting of the crop when the apple lady’s cues don’t produce the expected results (her leg signals are the bodily equivalent of Charlie Brown’s teacher talking). Approximately once a quarter, one of them dissolves into tears due to some reportedly traumatic situation, but these are women aged 30 and over, after all, so I think it’s more than likely hormonal. Due to short attention spans and inherent laziness, the lesson is quickly over. At this point, there is much self-congratulating among the cohorts about the hard work done and remarkable feats achieved, with no credit whatsoever given to the poor souls who

actually exerted themselves. I quickly communicate that I am ready to return to my stall by shaking my head and pawing at the ground, but they are all oddly impervious to such subtle gestures when trying to determine whether they want to eat Mexican food at the restaurant, or pick it up and bring it back with them (I’ve noticed it usually depends on the availability of certain beverages). When I finally get back to my stall, I’m given a “reward” for my efforts and am expected to make a grand show of gratitude for it. It’s usually an apple that’s only about the size of a plum, along with a rather intrusive display of hugging and kissing. Fortunately, that’s usually it for the night, and I’m safe – until next week. As you can see, my patience and tolerance are severely tested on Tuesday evenings, so if you have any heart at all, send a little prayer my way around that time. (Or an apple would be fine to send, too – Granny Smith, if you can. Or Honey Crisp.)

Love from the pasture,

It's important that the rider's shirt match the horse's saddle pad...NOT! 120 /

h g u o h S e i b b e D with Kelly Melang always gets the last word with the Women of Winston! Debbie Shough, Owner of etc. Consignment Shop, has her hands full. A new expansion to her shop has doubled her space, and two new additions to her life from adopting Edith and Derrick from Africa has doubled her fun. We caught up with her right as a crisis was unfolding at the shop. In typical Debbie fashion, she asked us to hold, solved it, and then came back to the phone. 1. How did you get into the consignment business? What was your inspiration?

6. If you could nominate a local woman for President who would it be?

“What else do you do with an interior design degree? You open a consignment shop. I always loved shopping consignment – it’s a great way to create a unique look for a fraction of the price of department stores. My inspiration was my mom; she opened a consignment store in Winchester, VA, and another in Asheville, NC. I watched her put the effort into the business and build it into a success, and that’s what I wanted to do – give other women the fun of finding those unique items at great discounts.”

“I’d nominate Keela Johnson, publisher of Forsyth Woman, and I’m not saying it for brownie points. Working with her over the years, I know that if there’s anyone that can make something happen, she can.”

2. What advice would you give to young women? “As a woman entrepreneur, my biggest advice is to not be afraid of hard work. Owning a business means you’ll work harder than you’ve ever worked in your life, but the rewards make it worth it. I always tell others to be true to what you believe and be honest with your customers, and most of all - have fun.” 3. What is your greatest obstacle as a woman? “I can’t think of a major obstacle in building my business. I guess it was my age when I started out. When you are a young business owner and a majority of your customers and employees are older than you, many question your experience. It just made me work harder to gain that experience and their confidence. When I first opened the store, whenever someone wanted to talk to the owner they always walked up to an older woman, and not me. Funny thing is, now they walk to me directly. What does that mean?” 4. What sets you apart from other women? “I am a hands on person. I’ve been in this business for 17 years and still have a hand in the daily operations of the store. My employees know that I expect hard work from them and that I lead by example. If you demand it from yourself, you’ll get it from everyone around you.” 5. Where do you see women in five years? “In my type of business, I don’t see huge changes. What I do see is women business owners as the norm, rather than the exception. I think corporate lines will fade even more.”

124 /

7. What do you see your legacy as? “I hope people say the same thing about me as they did about my grandmother. She was a great inspiration to me. She didn’t work outside the home, but she was a hard worker at everything she did and she treated everyone better than they expected. I hope people say that about me.” 8. Last but hardest question, what’s your guilty pleasure? “I know people are going to groan, but exercising is a guilty pleasure for me. With two small children, a business and becoming a grandmother, finding the time is hard. When I do have some downtime, I can’t resist a good reality show. I love watching The Biggest Loser. I mean, I have a hard time losing 5 pounds, I can’t imagine how hard it is for the people on that show.”
