The Century Mark One hundred. It’s the number of U.S. senators, the temperature at which water boils and the basis of our monetary system. It can bring a smile, like when your child aces a test or races across 100 yards to score a touchdown. It can even put a bounce in your step; according to Billboard’s Top 100, it’s the song everyone is dancing to (currently, it’s Pharrell Williams’ “Happy”). As this month’s issue reaches your coffee table, I’m happy to say Southlake Style has reached the century mark. One hundred issues ago, we covered the grand opening of the Grand Avenue District of Southlake Town Square. Since that first issue, we’ve come to enjoy a special place in the community and in your homes as the most-read local publication. Together, we’ve seen this area transform from sleepy suburb to a vibrant destination full of opportunities. Thumbing through our pile of past issues was a humbling experience to say the least. We’ve come a long way since March of 2006 — nine annual Best Mom essay contests to be exact — and we couldn’t have done it without the support of our business and community partners, our readers and the hundreds of kids who penned, typed or crayoned those essays through the years. As I look around, I’m also invigorated because it’s plain to see there are many great things still to come — new parks, new restaurants, new hotels and ever more places to come together and celebrate our community with style. Celebrating community: That was the plan in our first 100 issues and will be our plan for the next 100 to come. Yours in Southlake Style,

room THE BLACK KEYS TURN BLUE GRAMMY WINNERS RELEASE 8TH STUDIO ALBUM MAY 13 When it comes to indie rock, the mainstay name is The Black Keys. The dynamic duo of Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney has swept the stages of some of the nation’s most renowned venues and closed out top festivals like Austin City Limits and Lollapalooza. Now, the band is releasing its eighth studio album, Turn Blue, and more than likely will bring home another Grammy to place on their mantel.

GODZILLA IN THEATERS MAY 16

King of the Monsters Before the eye rolls and heavy sighs commence as another cult classic gets a remake, remember if there’s one thing Warner Bros. Pictures knows, it’s making movies. The iconic rebirth of Toho’s ‘”Godzilla” will take viewers through the pits of the world’s most famous monsters as he battles the biggest demon of all: humanity’s arrogance. Please refrain from pounding your chest.

JACK IS BACK, OVERSEAS “24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY”

Trailer Blazers Unite

PREMIERES MAY 5, 8 P.M. ON FOX

No matter which way you slice the cake, the biggest problem holding us back is ourselves. While it’s not completely our faults — we are, after all, creatures of habit — there is such a thing as getting comfortable in your routine. CEO of PeopleResults and former Accenture Senior Executive Patti Johnson, Southlake resident, teaches us how to ride the wave of change. A wave requires stepping out and building commitment that grows naturally, not by force.

Where in the world is Jack Bauer? London, of course. The ninth season of the show is set four years later, with Jack still in exile. This time, the rogue agent is thrown for a loop when one of his closest companions turns on him. The clock is set and counting down until the groundbreaking and Emmy Awardwinning drama hits our TV screens once again.

RELAY FOR LIFE SOUTHLAKE CELEBRATES ITS FIFTH YEAR Relay for Life Southlake returns to Carroll High School for its fifth year. The annual all-night event is expecting more than 2,000 participants from Southlake and neighboring communities. Relay For Life Southlake takes place on the football field and back parking lot of Carroll High School. The relay committee organizes the event to include a midway area of games, activities and food while the relay is underway. An entertainment stage is set up on the field to entertain teams walking the track. Organizers say they will move campsites to the football field rather than outside the track this year in an effort to capture the full energy of the event. Additionally, team fundraising activities will take place at campsites to allow teams to continue to raise funds with fun activities that others can share.

Mitchell went 315-41 at Lovejoy and led the program to its first state title in 2008, igniting a run of dominance in 3A. Mitchell earned numerous state and national accolades throughout Lovejoy High School’s four consecutive 3A titles.

TEXPRESS LANES OPEN TO MANAGE TRAFFIC CONGESTION The Texas Department of Transportation opened the TEXpress Lanes on the DFW Connecter as a tool for managing congestion. The lanes are on a four-mile segment of S.H. 114 from just west of S.H. 26 to east of International Parkway — near the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. The TEXpress Lanes will run parallel to fully reconstructed main lanes as well as frontage roads, offering drivers the option to pay a variable toll. However, the connector will open at zero cost for a temporary introductory period, which will allow the traveling public to try the lines, while providing TxDOT an opportunity to continue testing tolling equipment. Later, the incentive period will change and tolls will be charged. The single-occupancy passenger vehicle rate will range from $0.67 to $1 for the entire segment when using a TollTag from the North Texas Tollway Authority.

SOUTHLAKE CITY COUNCIL EXPRESSES SUPPORT FOR PROPOSED WESTIN HOTEL The City of Southlake is in talks to potentially acquire a new Westin hotel during the first reading of a site plan during a recent meeting. Paul Barham of Harrell Hospitality Group presented the proposed site plan and zoning change. The hotel would be located at 1200 E. S.H. 114, a space that is currently owned by Gateway Church. In 2007, the city council approved the current zoning on the property for the development of the Gateway Church campus, allowing for hotel district uses. The proposed hotel is a four-star, four-diamond facility, featuring 276 guest rooms and amenities, including a full-service restaurant, meeting and conference center and a rooftop pool. The hotel would be seven stories, span 6.8 acres and include a three-level parking garage. The council unanimously approved the second meeting, giving permission for design and construction to happen immediately.

SCOUTING THE GREAT NEIGHBORHOODS

lthough Mother’s Day is traditionally celebrated the second Sunday of May, you could say for Julia Ermish, it’s a celebration of sorts 365 days of the year. The Southlake resident and mother of six has been involved in Scouting for the last 15 years. That’s easy to

Anne, Julia and Julian Ermish are part of a long legacy of Scouting in Southlake.

A Mother’s Day

understand when you consider five of her children are currently in the Scouting world, and Julia will log another eight years before her youngest twins are finished with the program. Presently, Julia is the Committee Chair for Cub Scout Pack 982 and is the Assistant Leader for Girl Scout Troop 4033. She’s also in charge of troop merchandising for Boy Scout Troop 928, and she coordinates the cookie and popcorn sales. “It’s not uncommon to see my dining room packed with boxes of cookies and canisters of popcorn,” she says. “I don’t consider my 15 hours a week dedicated to Scouting a burden at all. I think Scouting is great for every young person who joins. It provides confidence and life skills to help in the future.”

112 State Street, Ste. 200, Southlake, Texas 76092

Julia is busy elsewhere, too. She helps her husband, Peter, at his electronics manufacturing company based in Southlake. Once, sometimes twice a month she jets to New York where she serves on the board of the Queen’s Botanical Garden. “It’s nice because we have a place in the city, so I just pack a small bag and go.” Although Julia never joined Scouts as a youngster, she did become involved after her second oldest child started the program. She says she had to learn how to camp, and the first time in the wilderness was a disaster. She says Scouting has taught her a lot over the years. “I can take down a tent and successfully get it back into the bag! When I did that, I knew I had mastered camping,” she says with a laugh. Happy Mother’s Day to Julia and all the other mothers who are reading this!


Southlake Style magazine made its debut in the early months of 2006, created in an effort to offer Southlake residents an opportunity to share their enthusiasm for the city. In the past eight years, the publication has made it a priority to deliver content that both serves and inspires, from Carroll ISD news and city updates to profiles on local personalities and fun articles about food, fashion and fancy cars. To highlight the always-impressive achievements of Southlake Carroll athletes, the first Dragon Pride was published in 2006 and has since acted as a means to chronicle years of sports success with two issues annually. On the following pages,

their favorite moments and take a look back at a few highlights that still resonate after 100 issues.

A CENTENNIAL OF By Linden Wilson

MAY • 29


MOST IMPACTFUL COVER STORIES Southlake Style has touched on many topics throughout the years. Take a look back at a few cover stories that really left an impression. Cover Story: January 2008 In the earlier years, contributors wrote much of Southlake Style’s editorial content, and this month’s cover feature introduced them and their writing to readers. Mike Mills penned a financial solutions column, Brad McCullom provided golf tips, Cruise Holidays of Southlake wrote about travel, and Karry Millette discussed the importance of fitness. Additionally, the one-and-only Roxann Taylor had her own real estate column, Dr. Eric Benzick wrote about family health, Jami and Bob Zimmerman chatted about interior design, and Dr. David Faltys broke news on all things Carroll ISD.


Cover Story: October 2008 In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this issue of Southlake Style incorporated a Think Pink! theme and donated 10 percent of its proceeds to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Tarrant County. Article topics included breast cancer survivor stories and breast cancer facts straight from physicians, among others. Former Dragon volleyball player Amy Moan also shed light on Pink Out games — Southlake Carroll athletic events that raise money through ticket sales for breast cancer research. Amy’s volleyball event was the first, and they continue to be successful for many other sports.

Cover Story: August 2009 As the 2009-2010 school year kicked off, this cover feature explored the advances in classroom technology. “Gone are the overhead projectors and pull-down screens of the past,” the article reads. “They have been replaced by document cameras and interactive white boards.” In 2013, CISD introduced its latest technological achievement — Mobile Dragon, a free smartphone app that allows parents and students to view campus maps, athletics schedules, a school calendar and more.

Cover Story: May 2011 In March of 2011, a 9.0-magnitude earthquake — the fifth largest in the world since 1900 — hit the northeast coast of Japan and triggered a devastating tsunami. Although Southlake’s sister city, Tome, is located 70 miles from the quake’s epicenter, it was still affected. At the time of this issue’s publication, one person was reported dead, 12 were missing and 42 were injured. Additionally, more than 1,000 buildings — mostly homes — suffered extensive damages. Then Southlake city councilman, Jeff Wang, was instrumental in promoting efforts like Southlake4Japan that raised money for disaster relief.

Cover Story: March 2013 This issue’s cover feature, “Kids in Crisis,” discussed the teen tragedies that plagued the city of Southlake between 2010 and March 2013. In that time period, 47 suicide attempts were reported, eight of which resulted in death. Teenagers between 15 and 19 years old made 14 of the attempts, and three of those resulted in death. Laura Hill, founder of Southlake Parents Against Risks to our Kids (SPARK), said at the time, “Kids are desperately looking for ways to express sadness and deal with stress.”

MAY • 31


Community Impact Award Winners Brian Stebbins (2009) The inaugural award was presented to Brian Stebbins for his extraordinary vision for Southlake Town Square, which has dramatically enhanced the landscape of the city. Stebbins, who passed away in October of 2012, will always be remembered as the father, friend and leader who put his heart and soul into transforming the town square into the wonderful dining, retail and residential community it is today.

Memorable Milestones

Brad Bradley (2010) As the founder of nearly 30 nonprofits that have improved the quality of life in and around Southlake, Brad Bradley was selected for the 2010 award. One the most recognizable children’s charities is Summer Santa, which Bradley cofounded with Dave Lieber, now a columnist for The Dallas Morning News. Bradley, also a judge, established the first law office in Southlake after settling in the area in 1983.

2006: Awarded Southlake’s Small Business of the Year 2006: First Dragon Pride issue September/October 2006: Celebrating 50 years of the city of Southlake

Southlake Women’s Club (2011) The faces behind Southlake’s annual Art in the Square festival were honored for making the event a time-honored tradition. Established in 1999, Art in the Square draws approximately 150 artists and thousands of art lovers to Southlake each year. Proceeds from the three-day weekend are donated to area charities.

2008: Southlake Style goes monthly March 2011: Five years of Southlake Style and Dragon Pride

Jack D. Johnson (2012) Known as the founder of Dragon Nation, Jack D. Johnson was awarded in 2012 for his role as the first superintendent of Carroll ISD — a position he held for 28 years. Sadly, Johnson passed away in early January 2013, but his legacy will forever live on in the hearts of Dragons everywhere.

Dragon Pride Fall 2011: Championship issue honoring the state champion Dragon football team and coaches March 2014: Cover feature celebrating 15 years of Southlake Town Square and introduction of the magazine’s redesign

Martin Schelling (2013) Recent winner Martin Schelling is at the heart of Southlake safety, having held some of the most esteemed positions in Southlake. He served on the SPIN committee, co-created Southlake’s Crime Control and Prevention District and currently serves on city council.

Where Are They Now?

While compiling some of the most memorable moments from the past 99 issues of Southlake Style and Dragon Pride, we decided to reach out to our readers to discover their thoughts on our content.

Catching up with some of Southlake’s famous faces

Sidney Fullmer

The “An American Girl: Saige Paints the Sky” star graced the July 2013 cover of Southlake Style. An exclusive event in partnership with Forest Park Medical Center and Harkins Theatres Southlake 14 was held in early July — it allowed ticket holders to view the movie before it was released. Sidney, who turns 14 next month and will enter her first year of high school in August, recently wrapped filming on “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.” The film, which also stars Jennifer Garner and Steve Carell, is expected to be released in theaters in October.

How long do you generally keep an issue of Southlake Style? 55% — 1 month or longer Wendy A.: “I have many copies saved as keepsakes for my children.” Karla C.: “Love to have them as a tabletop read for out-of-town guests who want to know what our city is about. They love the magazine.”

Favorite Issues Katie A.: “I enjoyed the issue featuring Peter Max. I kept that issue a long time.”

Cade Foster

The football star has been a cover star twice, once for Southlake Style’s February 2014 issue and previously for Dragon Pride’s Fall 2009 issue. The strong-legged kicker, who won two national championships while at the University of Alabama, will receive his master’s degree in August and intends to declare for the 2014 NFL draft. “I will be going out for the draft, but my focus is on pursuing a JD or MBA degree from Alabama,” Foster said last month.

Cover Story: April 2012 Southlake resident Jon Daniels, general manager for the Texas Rangers, graced this month’s cover. He became the GM in 2005 at just 28 years old (the youngest in MLB history) and completely restructured the Rangers’ approach to scouting. “We had to reassess how we did everything. There was no foundation to what we did, no scouting structure,” he said. “I challenged all scouts to come up with a ‘gut-feel’ guy. Find your guy, and do the extra homework on him.” Now 36, Daniels made news last year when he traded Ian Kinsler to the Detroit Tigers for Prince Fielder.

FUN FACT: The first issue of Southlake Style was 32 pages. December 2013’s Best Of issue reached 112, and the magazine now continues to print each month at 96 pages.

Magazine Contests Engaging readers is always one of the magazine’s top priorities. Over the years, Southlake Style has had the pleasure of reaching out to residents of Southlake and the surrounding areas for participation in various contests, including cover contests and the annual Best Mom contest. October 2009: Alannah Bruce, winner of the Taste of Autumn cover contest It’s been almost five years since this talent was selected to appear on the cover of Southlake Style. Alannah, who will turn 11 this July, has made a name for herself as an actress in film, television, on stage and in print. Managed by Dallas-based The Horne Agency, Alannah has appeared in campaigns for Michaels, Visionworks, Chuck E. Cheese and Academy Sports & Outdoors. She was recently cast in two feature films: “A Miracle for Haven,” set to release this coming Christmas, and “Dancer and the Dame,” starring Billy Gardell and Eva LaRue. August 2013: Zoe, winner of the Dog Days of Summer cover contest The large but loveable Bernese mountain dog posed with model Erin Robinson on the cover, but in real life, she belongs to Lance and Laura McKoy. Zoe, now 5 years old, was chosen from a sizeable number of adorable entries. Best Mom Essay Contest For nine years and counting, Southlake Style has asked elementary school students what makes their moms the best in Southlake. It’s always hard to select just one essay for publication in each May issue, especially when the kids describe Mom as “super mom,” “angel in disguise” and “my best friend.” To quote 2011 winner Eric Houtman, “A mom isn’t just someone who raises you. She helps you in school, goes to all your sports games and doesn’t get mad when you’re having fun and you beat her in checkers.”

Cover Story: April 2014 Southlake Style’s first Style Issue recapped the Southlake National Charity League’s annual fashion show and profiled eight locals who contribute to the community and look good doing it. It also featured Southlake Carroll freshman Abby Williamson on the cover. An up-and-coming high fashion model signed with Dallas-based Wallflower Management and New York-based IMG Models, Abby has only just begun to show the world her talents.

FUN FACT: When Armend’s was named Best Pizza in the March 2009 issue, word spread so fast that the restaurant ran out of dough trying to serve customers. Armend’s was once again selected as the best pizza restaurant in the area in the February 2014 issue. A poll distributed to readers in Southlake and surrounding communities confirmed that the family-friendly, BYOB restaurant is their go-to for good food and a good time.

Loyal Advertisers Since 2006 Thanks for being there every step of the way! Roxann Taylor “A decade ago, I met the Tesorieros as they got settled in Southlake. In the years that ensued, they shared their passion with me about wanting to have a publication that connected everyone in the community. Of course, I said I would be their first advertiser, and the rest is history.” Cruise Holidays, Mike & Gloria Currie “Thanks, Mike, for supporting creative yet thoughtfully selective writing. Thanks, Nicole, for always looking at our business from a variety of sales and marketing perspectives with sound business coaching. Together, your passions for life, family and travel are most refreshing and always with style.” Elite Suites, Dave & Jenny Shackelford Feedstore BBQ, The LaFavers Tommy Pennington Watermere

BEST MOM ESSAY CONTEST WINNER: KENDALL LYMAN For its ninth annual Best Mom Essay Contest, Southlake Style was honored to present the Best Mom award and prize package to another deserving mother. Old Union Elementary fourth grader Kendall Lyman wrote a heartfelt paper titled “Best Mom in Southlake,” about her loving and creative mom whose “warm, kind smile always brightens my day.” Kelly Lyman, unaware that teachers, students and staff were

waiting for her in the school’s library, was immediately overcome with emotion when she realized what was happening. After Kendall read her winning essay aloud to the group, Kelly received more than $2,000 worth of gifts from retailers including Grayson Allen and Bludoor Studios. Tears were flowing, but they were happy tears as Kendall and Kelly shared a special moment that they will always remember.

How one Southlake musician’s raw talent will make her a superstar By Linden Wilson Photography by Dustin Vyers


I JUST LOVE SHARING MY MUSIC WITH EVERYONE. Abby ANDERSON

A

bby Anderson’s fingers are dancing so fast across the piano keys that they create an energetic blur. Her long, wavy, chestnut brown hair is cascading over her shoulders, moving to the rhythm of the song as she sways to the beat. “I bet my heart, and the joker won,” she belts out, her soulful voice so powerful that it echoes throughout her living room. The sound is reminiscent of Trisha Yearwood or Lee Ann Womack, known for their ability to power through emotional ballads using their voice as the main instrument. As she finishes the song, Abby pauses, then raises her shoulders, smiles a big, ear-to-ear grin and lets out an animated laugh. Listening to her perform, it is easy to forget that this talented musician is still a 17-year-old girl who has only just begun to leave her mark on the world. The second of seven children, of which the elder six are girls, Abby has had a passion for singing since she was a child growing up in Southlake. “Really, what I liked was the performing part — being in front of people,” she says. At 5, she started taking classical piano lessons, and at 8, she saw one of her favorite singers, Norah Jones, in concert while she was on tour promoting Feels Like Home. Abby also grew up listening to Ray Charles, Leann Rimes, Garth Brooks and Elvis (“I am the weirdest Elvis fanatic, but I just love him. I love jazzy blues”). At 15,

she received the opportunity of a lifetime when she was asked to perform on stage at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium — where names like Elvis and Johnny Cash have played before her. Her performance was part of a benefit concert for the Smiles for Life Foundation, which her father, Steven, co-founded. “It was my very first live performance ever,” recalls Abby, who played the piano and sang “He Stopped Loving Me” by George Jones. “I was put out there, but I was totally okay with it. It was so cool.” While at the Ryman, Abby met Buddy Owens, an award-winning American country music singer based in Nashville. He immediately recognized Abby’s raw talent, humble attitude and passion for music. The two became fast friends and started writing a song that could serve as Abby’s debut to the public. This past January, “He Loves Me” was released on iTunes. The catchy, upbeat track describes a young girl picking daisy petals, wondering if the boy she likes loves her back. “Although the sun is shining/and the summer sky is blue/the pain of a crush I’m hiding/is finally coming through,” Abby croons in one of the song’s verses. “I always joke with him that it took a 35-year-old man to bring out the girly side of me because my single is such a chick flick song,” she laughs, admitting a lot

of her songwriting inspiration doesn’t come from her own love life but from her older sister, Ashlin’s. “She’s in college, and she calls me every now and then talking about boys.” Sometimes, Abby reads through past journal entries or reverts to events from her family’s history when searching for inspiration. Other times, it’s pure make believe. When her career started to take off a little more than a year ago, Abby’s parents pulled her out of Southlake Carroll for homeschooling — but her schedule isn’t any less strict than it was before. “My day starts at 5:30 a.m. with a scripture study class at my church in Colleyville,” she says. “I do that for an hour, then come home and get ready for the day. From 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., it’s straight schoolwork, but the beauty of it is that I don’t have any homework. From 2 to 4, it’s classical piano practice. Then I go to the gym, come back for dinner, and from 6 to 8, I do a lot of writing and composing.” Abby’s piano teacher, Mike Springer, is a North Texas-based instructor with more than 25 years of experience who comes to her house to give her lessons. “He’s amazing,” she says. “Words can’t explain the knowledge he has.” She records her music at Denton’s The Panhandle House, a studio owned by producer Erik Herbst. “He’s a great guy who has helped me develop my sound. I couldn’t be luckier to have him.” To date, Abby has recorded seven songs out of more than 25 she has written. “Never Again,” about a young girl abused by her father, is loosely based on someone Abby knows and conveys a poignant message similar to

Garth Brooks’ 1990 hit, “The Thunder Rolls.” At the end of this month, “Daddy He Loves Me” will be released in honor of Fathers Day. The tune, which tells the story of a girl who knows she has found the right man for her because of her father’s example, is based on Abby’s own relationship with her dad. When she’s not writing or recording, Abby loves strumming on her Taylor guitar — a recent Christmas present — and performing anywhere she can, whether it’s a gig at Spoons Café in McKinney, the Majestic Theatre or even a children’s hospital. “At Cook Children’s in Fort Worth, they have a topnotch recording studio for the kids called the Child Life Zone,” Abby says. “They call it the happiest place in the hospital. No nurses and no needles are allowed inside — these kids can just go in there and be kids. I’ve put on little concerts for them. Volunteering is my favorite.” Abby’s modest outlook and solid family values will certainly take her far (“I have a really great family life — we’re all really close and tell one another everything”), but it’s her voice that will make everyone take notice. Last month, Abby was asked to open for either Miranda Lambert or Blake Shelton at a large veterans benefit concert in Wichita Falls, and famed music label Capitol Records has already reached out to the talented teenager. “I’m really lucky that they would even notice me,” she says. “I’m not sure what’s going to happen. Right now, I’m 17, just playing all the gigs I can, writing as much as I can. I want to get a local following going, as big as I can. I just love sharing my music with everyone.”

SOUTHLAKE STYLE 4/7/14 9:39 AM


A quarter of a century later, Lani Stacy is back and bigger than ever By Christina Mlynski Photography by Dustin Vyers


D

ressed in a stark blue chiffon blouse, Lani Stacy strategically crafts her ideal fajita at Esparza’s Restaurante Mexicano in Grapevine. The corn tortilla begins to stack high as the sizzle sound from the piping-hot pan begins to idle. As she builds her perfect taco, she jumps from one topic to the next, smiling with her eyes. The phrase “Grapevine Opry” surfaces as the topic of conversation, and her demeanor changes: This bubbly woman becomes confident, proud. For most, the Grapevine Opry is seen as an iconic tourism staple for the city, but for this entertainer, the Opry far exceeds an amusement spot — it’s a place she’s come to know as home. Stacy began singing at the age of 5, taking vocal lessons to prepare her for singing at church and family events. In 1987, and at just 9 years old, she made her debut on stage at the Grapevine Opry during the inaugural show after the location underwent a major remodeling. “There’s a lot of great singers out there, but for me, my biggest goal is that people feel what I’m singing,” Stacy says. “If it’s a sad song, they’re crying by the time I’m done. If it’s a fast song, they’re dancing in their seats. That’s what drives me. It’s not just singing songs to sing songs, but to try and make people feel the music.” Over the years, Stacy started frequenting the Opry less and less, exploring other entertainment opportunities. When she was 13, she started a band that featured performers all under the age of 21. They

performed at concert venues such as Cowboys Dancehall Arlington, Billy Bob’s and SeaWorld. She also opened up for many country icons, including Reba McEntire, Mark Chestnut, Bryan White, Joe Diffie and Shenandoah. After gaining exposure by opening up for prestigious Nashville stars, she decided it was time to put her talents in the limelight. Stacy went to Nashville and met with numerous record labels. She was offered dozens of deals, but the right offer never came along. For this musical powerhouse, sacrificing her true character to become a symbol for the music industry wasn’t an option. “Music is all about creating a name for yourself and creating your own position in the music world,” Stacy says. “It’s not waiting for someone to find you or waiting for your big moment. It’s about getting yourself out there and creating what you want to look like.”

SOUTHLAKE STYLE


When Stacy realized Nashville wasn’t worth sacrificing her true self, she came back to Texas and served as an associate worship pastor and eventually became the worship pastor at Metroplex Chapel in Euless. Even though Stacy wasn’t pursuing entertainment as her main career, she never stopped performing. During her time as a worship pastor she still made time for her first love. Over the past five years, this season’s girl started getting a stirring feeling that she wanted to be back on stage — that’s when she placed the phone call to Rocky Gribble, Opry owner. “I just told him, ‘Hey, when you retire, I want to be the first one you tell,’” she explains. “I didn’t know if I’d be in a position where I could take it or if I even wanted it, or what was going to be going on in my life, but I at least wanted him to tell me.” Last summer, she received a call from recently retired Gribble who knew for nearly two years that when he finally decided to hang up his hat, she would take hold of the reigns. When Gribble’s wife was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, an intimate conversation between her and Stacy’s mother turned into a chance of a lifetime. Brena Gribble explained that they had plans to retire given the state of her health and knew that they wanted someone to carry on the tradition and name they made for the Opry. “When I received the call from Rocky, it was perfect timing,” Stacy explains. “I left my full-time gig with the church, so I was sitting in a position to be able to do anything I wanted to do.” She adds, “I’m a season’s girl. I think that when doors open up, that’s the path that I go down, but the performance side of things has always been my niche.” On Jan. 1, 2014, Stacy become the new producer of the Grapevine Opry. While her company Dream Big Productions will continue to carry out a legacy at the Opry, she is redefining a show that is coming into a new age of entertainment. The productions are fresh, fastpaced and provide the most important quality: laughter. The current shows include “Country Music in Texas,” which features songs from legends that were born and raised in Texas like George Strait, Willie Nelson, Miranda Lambert and many more. Additionally, the show “1950’s Mix Up” will feature favorite songs from the ‘50s, along with iconic movie sets such as “Grease,” “Blue Hawaii” and “Teen Beach Movie.” “Now, as Lani has taken over and created the all-new Grapevine Opry Show, the excitement and variety of these shows will reach a brand new audience and honor the Grapevine Opry’s devoted fan base,” says Leigh Lyons, communications manager for the Grapevine Convention & Visitors Bureau. “The show’s high-energy format features a variety of music genres performed by an amazing professional cast.” The lineup of performers will vary throughout the season, but singer Casey Rivers — first runner-up in

SOUTHLAKESTYLE.COM

season four of “Nashville Star” — and emcee Clint White are a few of the mainstays. As Stacy finally makes her way back to where her entertainment career began, the main priority is to pay the musical experiences forward. Consequently, she mentors aspiring musicians and also offers the Opry as a place for them to exercise their musical talents. For instance, 15-year-old Abby Cohen has been taken under this music veteran’s wing. Cohen performs at festivals and is paving a path on the country scene, which is proving to be a challenge. Dozens of television shows such as “The Voice” and “X Factor” are scooping up raw talent, which provides an easy system for record labels to discover the next big thing. Consequently, Stacy is on a quest to prove to aspiring musicians like Cohen that heading to major cities and compromising your character isn’t the only way to stardom. “I have young girls that think Nashville is the only way to fame, and that’s not the only way,” she says. “You can be a big fish in a little pond or a little fish in a big pond, but you have to create a name for yourself and pursue who you are.” As the stage lights blast on inside the Opry and Stacy takes the stage in her blinged-out cowboy boots with her crew members that are more like family, it’s as if she never left the stage 26 years ago. “These people are friends that I’ve known for many years, so the camaraderie on stage is amazing because it’s not a bunch of strangers getting together to perform a show — we are all friends,” Stacy says with a smirk. “That’s what makes it so different. It’s not just me standing on stage doing my thing; it’s a group effort, and everyone is the best at what they do.”

After 16 years in the field and an AAS degree in culinary arts, Elsaesser is now the master of the kitchen at Copeland’s, where he serves up delicious creole fare true to the culinary heritage of New Orleans. Although his favorite foods to eat include slow-cooked foods like braised, cured or smoked meats (particularly Osso Bucco), Elsaesser loves cooking a whole-roasted chicken because it’s his 5-year-old son’s favorite meal. Elsaesser, who grew up in Northeast Tarrant County, says he enjoys the commerce and has seen a lot of success and evolution over the years. He is passionate about cooking for Copeland’s because the restaurant prides their entire corporation on the food and unique, special blends of flavor. “It is evident in their recipes,” he says. “They start with robust bases like compound butters and continue to build flavors in a sauté pan to create a full, threedimensional taste.”

ASK THE COLLEGE COACH Stef Mauler

Stef Mauler is an independent educational consultant. She has an MBA from Harvard Business School, a BA from University of Pennsylvania, and a Certificate in College Counseling from UC San Diego.

Dear College Coach: Is it important to take AP or IB classes if I’m not worried about getting the college credit? -Studying Hard Dear Studying: Colleges look for students who are willing and able to challenge themselves. Therefore, it is important that you take the most rigorous course load offered by your school that you feel you can handle. Dear College Coach: I’m a straight A student but my high school is so competitive that it’s difficult for me to shine. Should I consider moving to a less competitive school before I apply to college? -Willing to Move Dear Willing: Admissions officers spend a lot of time learning about the high schools through visits, profiles, conversations with counselors and experiences with past students. They will assess your candidacy within the context of your school and will look to see how you take advantage of the opportunities made available to you. While moving to a new high school may help your academic rank, you will have less time to form relationships with recommenders and assume leadership roles in extra-curricular activities. Unless you are seeking automatic admission to a public TX college (i.e. Top 10%), I recommend you stay put.

Please submit your questions to The College Coach to info@themaulerinstitute.com

For this month’s installment, we head to Cowtown for brunch at the newest outpost in the Consilient Hospitality empire, headed up by Tristan Simon. If you have dined at Fireside Pies, The Porch, Hibiscus, Victor Tangos, CBD Provisions or The Front Room, then you are familiar with Simon’s restaurants. AF+B (American Food & Beverage) is similar in look, feel and menu to its sister restaurant, CBD Provisions, located in Dallas’ Joule Hotel. Having dined at both establishments, it’s clear that AF+B shines much brighter in the execution of its menu. The main reason for this is the restaurant’s executive chef, Jeff Harris, of Craft (now closed) and Bolsa fame. Harris is a protégé of Tom Colicchio (owner of the Craft restaurant chain and co-host of “Top Chef”) and has proven to be a star chef in just about any kitchen he works in. You have to pay close attention to actually find the restaurant, which is located in Fort Worth’s West 7th mixed-use development. The exterior is comprised of a wall of windows, dark steel and a lone sign made up of a slender four-

sided pole with the letters AF+B screened onto the sides. The interior is more inviting but still leans towards minimalism, although there is liberal use of wood in the ceiling, on the floors in the main dining area and tabletops throughout, made of reclaimed walnut to warm up the interior. The bar is topped with a cast zinc surface backed by massive wood shelving for liquor and beer taps. Chef Harris sources much of the menu’s ingredients from local farmers and producers, and the menu notes that because of this, a certain dish might not be available due to the small quantities that these local sources produce. The menu is simple and easy to understand with sections for snacks/small plates, larges plates and sides for lunch, dinner or brunch. Everything, even the condiments, is house-made. Our foursome dived right into the menu with a plan to order many things so we could share and try as much as possible. We ordered the housemade pastries that for this particular morning were jalapeño bread and banana walnut muffins served with whipped butter and seasonal apricot

jam. We added a cup of the grass-fed beef chili topped with cornbread crumble, sour cream and pickled jalapeños. The chili had just the right amount of kick and, much to my delight, no beans. We moved on to the large plates with the arrival of the twice ground, grass-fed beef burger cooked perfectly and served with a side of hand-cut fries. It wasn’t the most spectacular burger any of us had sampled, but it was a solid choice. The grouper sandwich had the largest chunk of fried fish we had ever seen; it was definitely fork and knife territory. Again, it was cooked perfectly with no oily sogginess and topped with a pickled slaw and slightly spicy remoulade sauce. Our next two large plates were recommendations from our server. The duck pot pie was a high-end take on the usual chicken version with flaky crust outside and generous hunks of duck and vegetables inside. The turkey pastrami sandwich was good but didn’t live up to the “best sandwich on the menu” promise of our server. Finally, we had a side of AF+B’s version of mac & cheese but made with their house-made rigatoni, cheddar and bacon. The service was excellent, and the relaxed atmosphere added to our enjoyable brunch experience. You won’t be disappointed in this new star of the Cowtown dining scene. AF+B’s custom bar.

Fish City Grill It’s crawfish season at this renovated seafood eatery Dave and Mary Garner are perhaps best known as the owners of Wildwood Grill, a Southlake staple since 2009. In December 2013, the restaurateurs also acquired Fish City Grill, a seafood lover’s haven. Since taking over the Southlake location, Dave has hired new staff and completed a $50,000 renovation. After giving it a fresh coat of paint, reupholstering chairs and booths and adding other personal touches like artwork and a chalkboard detailing daily specials, Dave says the restaurant now has the atmosphere it was missing before. “We wanted it to feel like a cozy neighborhood restaurant as opposed to a Pappadeaux you might find near a busy highway.” Fish City Grill’s menu, which also got a makeover, reflects its unique ambiance. Dishes like the oyster nachos (fried oysters with chipotle tartar sauce and fresh pico de gallo) and crispy calamari (topped with Parmesan and kosher salt and served with olive aioli and Thai chili sauce) offer surprising twists to everyday seafood favorites. Also popular are the weekly chalkboard specials that range from all-you-can-eat Alaskan snow crab to sea scallop with lemon-scented rice and marinated sliced tomatoes. Other Fish City must-trys include fish and chips, honey chipotle shrimp tacos, crawfish etouffee and the crawfish po’ boy. The grill sources its crawfish from Louisiana — the tasty creatures are caught, delivered overnight and always cooked to order. On April 19, Fish City kicked off its all-youcan-eat crawfish Saturdays. “Fish City Grill is a nice complement to what we offer at Wildwood Grill, and Mary and I are committed to bringing the same high level of service and our personal touch to Fish City Grill,” Dave says, noting the restaurant has already catered an event for Southlake Style and is participating in other community activities.

Brighton is often recognized in pictures featuring its pebble beach (comprised of more than 614 million stones) dotted with colorful striped chairs and tourists and townies alike catching some rays on the shore. Travelers often opt to visit London, Cambridge, Bath and Oxford when they head to England (and rightfully so — these cities are brimming with history, architectural grandeur and British charm), but Brighton’s colorful landscape, museums and nightlife hotspots make it a unique cultural destination worth checking out.

Sights to See Brighton beach will undoubtedly be your first stop during your trip. It truly comes alive in the summer, buzzing with activities like sailing, swimming and volleyball. Originally built in 1823, the city’s famous Victorian-style pier now combines its old-world charm with modern facilities like The Booster thrill ride, Palm Court Restaurant (where you can dive into the classic British dish of fish and chips) and arcade center perfect for capturing the attention of little ones. Sneak some education into your vacation with a visit to the Brighton Sea Life Centre, situated near the iconic pier. The aquarium — the world’s oldest in operation — houses more than 1,500 sea creatures like giant turtles, sharks, crabs and starfish.

Spend a Day in North Laine This neighborhood of more than 400 shops, restaurants and entertainment venues is often referred to as Brighton’s best-kept secret. Reminiscent of London’s Notting Hill, North Laine is also known for being Brighton’s relaxed, eclectic quarter. Conveniently located near the Brighton train station, North Laine literally has anything and everything, from tattoo parlors and vintage clothing shops to pubs and arts and crafts stores, and you can easily spend a full day browsing the district. Grab an ice cream at Gelato Gusto, create a masterpiece at the Painting Pottery Café, browse the Brighton Toy and Model Museum, and comb through the collection of home products at InHouse Space — we bet you’ll find some unique finds to take home with you.

Fall In Love...

Put Your Feet Up Less than a minute from the beach is One Broad Street, a boutique bed and breakfast offering bright, airy rooms and cooked-to-order breakfasts made with fresh ingredients found in the Sussex area. All guest rooms are ensuite and feature five-star luxury hotel beds, wireless Internet, coffee and tea services and flatscreen TVs. Nestled on the seafront just opposite the Brighton Pier is The Granville hotel, Brighton’s original boutique establishment. Its 24 individually themed rooms, waterfront location and famous basement restaurant Smokeys (known for its American-style brunch) make it a destination unto itself. If you prefer something a little more upscale, try the Hotel du Vin, located a stone’s throw away from the water. A uniquely sophisticated hotel, it features 49 rooms with eccentric Gothic and modern Tudor touches. Or, if you truly yearn for a bit of home-away-from-home familiarity, check into the Hilton Brighton Metropole, a stunningly picturesque building with a plethora of high-end rooms. Family rooms feature both a double and single bed, great for those with younger children. An expansive swimming pool, spa and sauna, in-hotel salon and fitness center make it an ideal place to relax after a day exploring the city.

ZERO TO 60

BMW says goodbye to its award-winning 3 Series and raises the roof on a new era with the all-new 2014 435i convertible.

A Top-Down Upgrade 2014 BMW 435i CONVERTIBLE

A DETAILS Engine: 3.0-liter Turbocharged 6-cylinder Horsepower: 300 hp MPG: 30 mpg/hwy 0-60: 5.4 sec MSRP: starting at $54,900

92 • MAY 14

fter nearly three decades of dominance, BMW has raised the roof on a new era of convertibles. Having hit dealers in the first quarter, the new BMW 435i picks up where its predecessor, the 335i, left off. Redesigned from virtually every angle, BMW’s latest is larger, wider, lower to the road and, thanks to an improved roof design, brings a new level of coupe comfort to the top-down set. Unmistakable family ties bind with the 435i’s striking front end, which hosts the well-known double-kidney grille, four round headlights and a large air intake in the front apron. New elements include the convertible’s muscular wheel arches and wide track, which show off an aggressive stance and prominent horizontal lines. With the flowing lines of its redesigned silhouette, set-back cockpit and low ground clearance, the vehicle is a head-turner.

As the high water mark for the 4 Series, the 435i’s

multi award-winning TwinPower Turbo 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine is a cut above that of its little brother, the 428i. Both feature a standard 8-speed sport automatic transmission, but the more powerful 435i features rearwheel drive that helps makes the most of its 300 horses.

Fraught with luxury features typical of any high-

end convertible, the 435i does have a sensible side. Thanks to the car’s lightweight construction, aerodynamic features and its gas-sipping ECO PRO mode, fuel consumption can be reduced by as much as 20 percent, resulting in an impressive 30mpg highway.

BMW has once again hit the mark with an inspir-

ing drive that keeps your head in the clouds yet all the while remains grounded.
