13 year old prodigy set to display her vocal chops By DANA BROWN For The 411 Talented thirteen year old singer Alexis Clare McKinnon will be performing a concert at the Stadium Theater in Woonsocket on May 25, to benefit St. Mary's Home for Children. With over 1,000 seats to fill, this will be her largest feature concert. Although, McKinnon has had thousands of eyes look her way before, whilst performing the leading role in a production of Gian-Carlo Menotti's 1951 opera, “Amahl and the Night
Visitors.” Nine years old at the time, McKinnon was the youngest singer to perform with Opera Providence. She knew the hour long composition by heart, mouthing the words as other singers aspirated their parts. Studying under the tutelage of Rene de la Garza, professor of music and vocal studies at URI, since the age of five, McKinnon has been through the drills of classical performance for years. Being stopped in the middle of a melodic phrase to

Number of new registered businesses increases The number of new business entities created in the first quarter of 2014 rose compared to a year ago, according to data released today by the office of Secretary of State A. Ralph Mollis. The first quarter of 2014 is up 4.35% from the first quarter of 2013. From January through March 1st, 1,989 new business entities registered with the Secretary of State’s office; this is up over 4% compared to the first quarter of 2013, when 1,906 registered. In the first quarter of 2012, 1,976 new business entities registered. “This is a clear sign the economy may be improving, so this should be viewed with optimism. The data shows entrepreneurs are confident in Rhode Island’s long-term potential, and are placing business roots right here in Rhode Island, where they know they can grow and be successful,” said Mollis. Mollis tracks quarterly business filings because most newly formed business entities in Rhode Island choose a corporate structure that requires registering with his office. More than 70,000 limited liability companies
and for-profit and non-profit corporations are currently registered. In addition to its work with start-ups, the Secretary of State's office also oversees recording commercial liens, registering notaries public and protecting corporate trademarks. The Secretary of State’s office also offers free workshops, both in English and Spanish to business owners to help them start, grow, manage and market their businesses. A full list of workshops can be found on our official website at: http://www.sos.ri.gov/business/ businessinfo/workshops/ For more information about the programs and services offered to Rhode Islanders by the Secretary of State’s office, please view our VIDEO: https://www.youtube. com/watch?v=DonlZEPrG-A and visit our website at www.sos.ri.gov Secretary of State Mollis is committed to making it easier for Rhode Islanders to vote, making it easier to do business in Rhode Island and making government more open and accessible.

FM Global to issue $465 million to clients in 2014 Clients of commercial property insurer FM Global will collectively receive an estimated US$465 million in premium reduction when they renew their policies between June 30, 2014 and June 29, 2015. The “membership credit” is the largest the company has ever offered its clients and is a result of the mutual insurer’s continued financial success due, in large part, to policyholders’ diligent property loss prevention efforts. The credit each client will receive will be based on client tenure, with longer-term clients benefiting the most. Approximately 1,900 clients qualify, some of which have been policyholders with FM Global since the late 1800s. Following this credit, FM Global clients will have benefited from approximately US$2.5 billion in membership credit since the program was introduced in 2001. “Our favorable loss experience, due to the diligence our clients have shown toward property risk improvement, has made it possible for us to provide another premium credit to eligible policyholders,” said Shivan S. Subramaniam, chairman and chief executive officer. “As a mutual company, our policyholders are our owners, so, naturally they share in the benefits of taking prudent steps to protect their property and business continuity.” FM Global clients holding policies consecutively for: • Fewer than five years will be eligible for a 5 percent credit; • Five to 19 consecutive years will be eligible for a 10 percent credit; • 20 consecutive years or more will be eligible for a 15 percent credit A more detailed overview of the 2014/2015 membership credit plan (including eligibility, timing and basis for calculations) is available in the 2014/2015 Membership Credit Executive Plan Summary. Established in 1835, FM Global is a US$5.6 billion mutual insurance company whose capital, scientific research capability and engineering expertise are solely dedicated to property risk management. Its client-owners, who share the belief that the majority of property loss is preventable, represent many of the world’s largest organizations, including one of every three FORTUNE 1000 companies. They work with FM Global to better understand the hazards that can impact their business continuity in order to make costeffective risk management decisions combining property loss prevention with insurance protection.

The Front of your back By Dr. Catie McArdle When we think of our backs, we often think of the back that we can see, not the opposite side that is close to our insides. But, there are some muscles that attach to the front side of the lumbar vertebrae and run into our hips. When the hip muscles, like the psoas, quadriceps, and TFL muscles are tight, they can distort the normal relationship of the spine and can cause a sway forward, or an accentuated lumbar lordosis. This increased “dip” in the back can distort our posture and even our sense of balance; eventually leading
to back pain. Keeping the hip flexor muscles stretched out can help to alleviate back pain. Our hip flexors are part of the body’s core stabilization. The psoas muscle is the major hip flexor and it attaches from the femur bone, across our pelvis to the lumbar vertebral bodies and discs. If you sit all day long and have a desk job, this muscle can become chronically shortened and tight. This muscle tightness can lead to instability which you will eventually feel as lower back pain. Now, how can you combat this instability? • Get up and get walking! Take breaks throughout the day, walk around the building on sunny days, take the stairs instead of the elevator, or just do some laps around the office space. Anything to get some movement into your hips. • Stretch the psoas muscle – daily! Take 5 minutes out of your day to stretch the front of your hip. Get in a kneeling positing with one foot flat on the ground, keeping your knee aligned above your heel. Take the other knee and place it on the ground about a foot back. Keep your back straight, and push your hip forward so you feel a stretch on the lower leg. Hold it for a good 20-30 seconds and perform each side 3 times. • Use a stability ball to sit on instead of a
deskchair. This will ensure that you are using your stomach muscles to sit up nice and straight and to avoid hunching. By bringing your bellybutton into your spine, you will automatically take pressure off your back. The ball will also ensure that you are keeping good posture. • Consider a standing work station. Talk to your human resources department and see if this option is available. • Add a yoga practice into your weekly workouts. Most yoga practices will incorporate “hip openers” into the routine. It is a great way to get the proper instruction and guidance on the stretches. Springtime is a good time for transformation, so why not start by transforming your spine into a healthier one?

Alexis McKinnon continued from A1
translate an Italian or French passage into English, before being critiqued and continuing in a different timbre. “You do it because it helps you in the long run,” said Alexis, a remarkable attitude for a young person, who shares with her generation the attention span shortening obsession with social media. However, McKinnon isn't inextricably tied to her generation, listing off artists nonchalantly from contemporary to classical, opening up an historic globe of tones. Concerning opera she said, “Nobody listens to it anymore. It's kind of sad. This generation doesn't appreciate it.” Her concert will open with opera, then taper into r&b and pop tunes, songs by favorites Whitney Huston, Maria Carey and Michael Jackson among others. Incredible aerialists from Arielle Arts will be clinging to silk cloths and contorting their bodies in aerobic poses as part of the show.

An important part of the concert for this insightful young woman is the cause: St Mary's Home for Children. “Being a kid, I wanted to give back to them,” she said. “We wanted to help.” St. Mary's offers residential, out-patient and educational support for children who have suffered traumatic abuses or are afflicted with socio-emotional learning disabilities –– upholding the values of family, trust, understanding, acceptance and respect. St. Mary's philosophy: “All children deserve to be safe, to grow up with a sense of belonging to a family and community, and to know that they are worthwhile and competent, as they prepare to be productive members of the community.” The Stadium Theater, having seen drastic refurbishment over the past twenty years, this turn of the century building offers an ideal venue. The classical images painted on the walls, the bass relief columns, statues, fountains, acoustics and architecture make the place feel like a relict of ancient Venice. McKinnon's worked hard to get
there, through her own determination. She is not ground to the bone, seated behind a piano for twelve hours a day as the stories of so many other brilliant child musicians have unfolded. “My parents don't force me to do things I don't want to,” McKinnon said. “Of course, I practice a lot, but when I say enough is enough, they respect that.” McKinnon's family is on board with letting her eight octave voice take her as far as it can, but they are firm about letting her enjoy growing up first. Like many her age, she's going through the tribulations of jr. high school. She plays soccer, shops, hangs out with her friends, living a seemingly normal life. Twisting her braids and checking her iPhone, one wouldn't know that when she takes in a lung of air she can belt out an intoned song jumping from intensity to sentimentality in an instant. “Music is my life. It's what I do all year round,” McKinnon said. “I don't ever get sick of it. The possibilities are endless. It's infinite.”
Johnston man ordered to pay back wages Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin announced that John J. Salois (age 42) with a last known address of 29 Matthew Drive, Johnston, pleaded nolo contendere Friday in Providence District Court before Judge Elaine T. Bucci to one count of violating a final order of the Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training (RI-DLT) in violation of RIGL 28-14-4, Payment on Separation by Employer. Salois was sentenced to a one year filing and ordered to pay restitution for unpaid wages in the amount of $1,710.80. Had the case proceeded to trial, the State was prepared to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that John Salois, President of Airtime Inc., failed to pay his employee Erin Marie Magee for more than 100 hours of Sunday pay between July 2011 and May 2012 and two hours of regular pay between March 31, 2013 and April 7, 2013. Magee filed a complaint with the Labor Standards Unit at RI-DLT. A hearing was held on November 25, 2013 resulting in a decision ordering Salois to pay wages owed to Magee. Salois failed to comply with the Order, and the case was referred to the Office of Attorney General for criminal prosecution. "Individuals who work in good faith deserve to be paid the proper wage, and employers who refuse to pay proper wages and flout the labor laws of this State will be prosecuted," said Attorney General Kilmartin. RI-DLT Director Charles J. Fogarty said, "The Department is committed to investigating all wage complaints and aggressively enforcing these matters as allowable by law." Rhode Island Office of Attorney General Investigator John Rabbit investigated the matter and Special Assistant Attorney General Genevieve Allaire Johnson prosecuted the case on behalf of the State.

Avoid problems by updating beneficiary designations Like many people, you might not particularly enjoy thinking about your estate plans, but such planning is necessary to make sure your assets go where you want them to go. And it’s just as important to regularly review your plans with your tax, legal and financial professionals in case any changes are needed. For instance, some of your wishes expressed in your will may be overridden by beneficiary designations you filled out years ago. If these designations become outdated, your assets could be passed to those you didn’t intend. You might be surprised at how many of your financial assets and legal documents have beneficiary designations tied to them. If you have an IRA, a 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plan, a life insurance policy, an annuity, a transfer-on-death (TOD) arrangement, or any of a va-
riety of other assets or accounts, you almost certainly named a beneficiary. And this beneficiary designation offers a simple, direct and efficient way to get assets in the hands of your loved ones who survive you. However, as time goes by, you may experience many changes in your life — and when your life changes, your beneficiary designations may need to follow. But if you are like many people, you might forget to update these designations after a marriage, divorce or other change in your family situation. And because the beneficiary designation is a legally binding document, the asset will go to the person you once named as a beneficiary, regardless of your current relationship status. It really doesn’t take much effort to look over your accounts and legal arrangements to ensure that your

beneficiary designations are current — and if they aren’t, it’s pretty easy to change them. In fact, for some financial accounts, you may be able to update the beneficiary designations online. In any case, plan on reviewing your beneficiary designations regularly, but especially when you experience a change in your life. Here’s one more thing to keep in mind: Make sure your current beneficiaries are informed that they will eventually be receiving your 401(k), IRA, life insurance proceeds or other assets that require a beneficiary designation. This advance knowledge may help your loved ones as they plan and maintain their own financial and investment strategies. Although it’s clearly important for you to update your beneficiary designations and to communicate your actions, you will still need to attend to
other areas of your estate planning, such as providing care for minor children or dependents, deciding who you want to receive specific items that do not carry a beneficiary designation, naming someone to manage your affairs should you become incapacitated, and specifying the control you wish your beneficiaries to have over their inheritance. These are just a few examples of estate-planning considerations. Because everyone’s situation is different, you will need to consult with your legal advisor to determine the level of estate planning you require. As we’ve seen, updating your beneficiary is one piece of the puzzle — but to leave the legacy you desire, you’ve got to complete the picture.

By Mort White Visit The Magic Garden at www.themagicgarden.com Call 855-660-4261 or firstname.lastname@example.org with your lawn & garden questions every Saturday from 8:06am to 10:00am ET One touch of nature makes the whole world kin. Shakespeare My neighbor has pine trees along my north side. My day lilies now have only half a day of sunlight and moss has taken over the lawn in that area. Should I move the day lilies? Sue, Beckley, WV If you do not want to suffer remorse, let the situation dictate your alternatives. You could apply sour milk to kill the moss or slow the growth with the lime. The pines will not stop growing and providing too much shade for your day lilies. Move the lilies now while they are not in flower to a sunny location. You could cultivate the bed they are in now. Moss is a good green manure but you will get more blooms in the sun. My eight year old heather plant bs about three feet across. It is all mushy on the interior with brown and gray foliage. Should I try to save it? Mike, Montville, CT You could use a fungicide after pruning severely. Remove all material that is not green. Use Bordeaux mix if you prefer organic. Benlate is an excellent fungicide. I would say it is a 50% chance of survival. Because you have a shallow water table in your area, you might consider transplanting to a new hole with a third sand in the new soil. Put a foot of the new soil under the plant. This will help provide good drainage, which the plant prefers. It has quickly turned hot and my irises have about three inches of rust at the tops. Can I cut them now? George, Boaz, AL Most of the country has experienced a cold wet winter. Fungi are running rampant as snow and frost melt.
Cut them down to two inches from the ground. Dust with Bordeaux mix and replant them with a sandy soil mix. Irises should be split every three years anyway. This will make them more prolific. My night blooming Cereus cactus has not produced much flower this past bear. I use a liquid fertilizer and keep the plant on the dry side. Any suggestions? Mike, Cranford, NJ No one is fertilizing in the desert, where the temps get really cold at night. Some specie like Selenicereus grandiflorus bloom only once a year with a splendid flower. Stop treating your cactus with all that TLC. What it really needs is prolonged nights around 45 degrees in the fall. This is best accomplished by leaving the plant outdoors
until the buds set. This will bring some serious blooms. What can I do with my Narcissus after they have finished blooming indoors? Vivian, Harrisville, RI Store them in a brown paper bag or in sawdust just as you would your tulips from outdoors after they die back. Remove all the fibrous root and cut off the tops. Let them sun dry for a couple of days before putting them in a cool dry place for storage. In the fall you can plant them with your daffodils and other Dutch bulbs. Visit themagicgarden.com/library, which has more than a thousand lawn and garden Q&A.
Feeling like you
paid too much in taxes this year?
This year, evaluate whether you can benefit from: 1. Tax-advantaged investments. If appropriate, consider tax-free municipal bonds to provide federally tax-free income.* 2. Tax-advantaged retirement accounts. Consider contributing to a traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or 401(k) to help lower your taxable income. 3. Tax-advantaged college savings accounts. Contribute or gift to a college savings plan for your children or grandchildren. *May be subject to state and local taxes and the alternative minimum tax (AMT).

May 16 - May 29, 2014 Red Day continued from A1
for the better. One branch picked up their trowels and sheers for some spring cleaning in the gardens of The Center. Rakes combed through grass, pulling up the scents of musky leaves left over from the fall. Backpack gas powered blowers cleared the sidewalks of debris. In the early air of the season, fruit flies buzzed around budding growth on young branches. Beneath these, volunteers were on hands and knees ridding the mulch of weeds. “We look forward to it,” said agent Kim Foley. “It makes the office closer. The camaraderie tightens. It's a great event. We love it.” The auburn, wood slatted building with forest green trim was surrounded by busy workers. In the window of the back room, members of The Center could be seen in chairs doing the wave, lifting their arms in the air, then touching the ground. “It's a great company to work for,” said Marilyn Boyce, a seven year veteran with the company. “Their priorities are in the right place.” Boyce illustrated that the Red Day event was a birthday present to Keller Williams a few years back. She wanted people to get out and give to the community. The team was at it all day. Once the yard was all cleaned up, they headed to Mobile Loaves and Fishes in Cranston, serving food to the homeless at Harrington Hall. Evelyn Ranone, team leader for the expedition, estimates over 1 million hours of community service were logged on Red Day from all the agents worldwide. That's a sizable helping hand.

Carina & Dolce: Confectionary artistry personified By DANA BROWN ndrea Soave Nadeau was the highest ranking female chef in Providence. For fifteen years she was the chef-de-cuisine at Camille's on Federal Hill. At the top of her game, she opted out of the chef's life and opened up a boutique, Carina & Dolce, on the corner of Plainfield St. and Atwood Ave. in Cranston. Nadeau makes custom cakes and cookies for events. After being replaced at Camille's when a broken foot forced an extended medical leave, Nadeau used the opportunity to build up Carina & Dolce. It allowed her to nurture a natural talent for pastry arts and to spend more time with her family. “The reason why this is here,” she said, tussling her four year old son's hair. He ate the frosting off a miniature sample cupcake while she asked him about soccer practice. Behind them, light filtered through the pink curtains of Carina & Dolce's front window. “I decided to give this 100 percent,” Nadeau said. Instead of being a chef, who must always put the restaurant first, working inhuman hours while pioneering recipes, she chose to be an entrepreneur. In addition to cakes and cookies, Nadeau specializes in edible printing, favors, novelty pastries, french macaroons, cupcakes, and cake pops. “Keep it nice and classy,” Nadeau said. Using highend practices for a gourmet style product, she'll use real butter cream, rather than crisco or shortening, to get just the flavor she wants. Nadeau and her husband, also a former chef, would go out to dinner and play a tasting game, trying to figure out how to recreate dishes from a few bites. With an eye for interior design, the small, unas-

Drive to help needy veterans a success! Family Service of Rhode Island recently concluded a community drive to assist needy veterans and their families. Many boxes of personal care items—such as toothpaste and shaving cream—were brought by community members to several Family Service of Rhode Island locations. “The response was terrific,” said Margaret Holland McDuff, Family Service of Rhode Island chief executive officer. “We are so thankful to the people of Rhode Island for this wonderful support of our men and women in uniform and their families.” The campaign was headed by former Army sergeant Jeanne M. Sherman, MEd, CAGS, LMHC, clinical supervisor of Family Service of Rhode Island’s Children’s Treatment and Recovery Center, which works with military
families with past, current or upcoming deployments. Collected items were put into tote bags by the American Red Cross Youth Council and given to veterans in need as part of their “Totes of Hope” drive. “We are so thankful for Family Service of Rhode Island’s community outreach,” said Jason Campagnone, director of volunteer resources for the American Red Cross in Connecticut and Rhode Island. “Many thanks to all who brought in the items to Family Service of Rhode Island. They’ll never know, but their kindness and generosity will make a tremendous difference to veterans and their families. Family Service of Rhode Island is a statewide non-profit human service and educational organization. More information is available at www. familyserviceri.org. In the photo, (left to right), David Vargas and Jason Campagnone from the American Red Cross join Family Service of Rhode Island’s Jeanne Sherman and her intern from Providence College, Jacquelyn Desrosiers, in looking over just a small portion of the donated items.
