EDITOR’S NOTE

L

ove is in the air and has been for the past few months! Did you know that most men propose between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day? It’s true! In January, I attended 3 Bridal Shows. In fact, over 300 brides attended the Delmarva Bridal Showcase at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center. Personally, I met about 100 brides at my booth. 2/3 of these excited brides are getting married this year! Some were just starting to plan, while others had only a few details to finalize. If you are a new bride, mother of the bride or know someone who is getting married in 2014 or Spring 2015, give them these tips: 1) GET THE DRESS ORDERED! Shop with local gown companies, like Patsy’s Bridal, Amber Nicole, Dryden Dress and Bustle. 2) Secure the venue or wedding planner 2) Book the date with caterer, cake, photographer and dj. You can firm up details later, but get on their calendar! 3) Book your honeymoon. We have many more tips, new barn venues, a budgeting guide, plus travel agency info in Beach To Bay Bridal Magazine. Go to www.beachtobaybridal.com for a list of places to pick one up. Sending out cupid’s arrow to everyone and a big smooch to my husband!

New

Trends in Jewelry

by Brittney D. Herz

I

t’s a new year and a new season for jewelry! So what are some of the new trends to get into? One new trend has been dubbed “primary school” jewelry. Anything that is geometric, brightly colored, and you guessed it, looks like something you would have had or used in primary school is going to be a big trend this spring. Some of the more popular colors for spring 2014 are emerald, fuchsia, and yellow gold. In contradiction to the bright bold looks, feminine pieces are also going to be popular for 2014. This can be anything from dainty porcelain pieces to very thin

chains and pretty stones. Skinny bangles, like those made by Alex and Ani, are a 2014 must have. Alex and Ani is a company started by Carolyn Rafaelian that makes all of their “positive energy” jewelry out of recyclable

goods. Her bracelets, bangles, rings, earrings and necklaces are all made in the United States using recycled scraps from local mills. So not only do you get a beautiful and trendy piece of jewelry you are helping the environment as well! They also have what they call Charity by Design. This allows purchasers to donate to a nonprofit by purchasing their design. You can buy Alex and Ani jewelry locally at Vernon Powell in Salisbury and the Treasure Chest in Berlin. Alex and Ani offer many styles of charms for their bangles. Charms and pendants are definitely going to be a trend for 2014. Animal pendants, gems, raw metals, and rough stones are all making a lot of appearances on the runways. In addition to pendants you may see pins and brooches make a comeback. Everything from insects, to flowers, to large gems have been predicted to be popular for 2014. As far as what

type of metals to go after, it seems that gold is the most popular. While sterling silver did make a close second most fashion experts have pinned gold as the hot trend for 2014. Just like with trying to find amazing outfits that no one else will have sometimes you have to shop for jewelry outside of the usual chain retail stores. Try some local shops like The Green Doors, G.B. Heron Goldsmiths or Robinson’s Family of Businesses in Salisbury/ Fruitland or Onancock. For unique gifts and wearables, don’t miss the upcoming Fine Arts and Crafts Show in Ocean City on February 14th, 15th, and 16th at the Gold Coast Mall.

“JUST ASK ANN” Dear Ann, My ex-wife filed bankruptcy. I found out when I got a notice in the mail. We had a lot of bills together, mostly credit cards. Some of them she was supposed to pay. She was also supposed to pay the mortgage on the house I moved out of. But I don’t know if she does or not. Do I have to file bankruptcy too? Frustrated Ex-Husband Dear “Frustrated”, I know that getting the notice in the mail from the Bankruptcy Court had to be a shock. It’s unfortunate that your ex-wife could not have talked to you about her situation before she filed the bankruptcy. Things might have been a little easier for you. You may find yourself in a complicated situation now. Both federal law and state law apply to domestic debts when an exspouse files bankruptcy. And your rights and liabilities may vary depending on any

number of factors. The first thing you will want to determine is which of the debts you are legally liable for. For instance, credit card debt may be joint debt, for which you are personally obligated. But, as to some of the credit cards, your exwife may have been the only one legally responsible for repayment. You may have only been an “authorized user”. If so, even though you may have charged items on the card, you would not be obligated for the repayment. If the bills you are actually obligated to repay turn out to be minimal, you may not even want to consider bankruptcy. Your situation with the mortgage may be similar. Sometimes, even though both spouses are in title on the deed to the home, for whatever reason only one of them is legally obligated to pay the mortgage. Beyond that, even though the lender may have the legal right to pursue you personally for any unpaid mortgage debt, it is still rarely done. Usually the mortgage holder forecloses on the home, but does not seek a personal judgment against the borrower. So, even if your ex-wife does not pay the home mortgage, if you are not personally threatened with a lawsuit, you may not need to consider bankruptcy. It’s also important for you to know that your ex-wife’s obligations to you could survive

NER LEGAL CORNER LEGAL CORNER LEGAL CORNER L her bankruptcy. You refer to your “ex-wife”, so I infer that there has been a legal divorce. If so, you may have a separation agreement and should have a divorce decree. To the extent that your ex-wife’s responsibility to pay the designated bills and the mortgage are spelled out in the court documents, they are most likely “non-dischargeable”. If so, even after her bankruptcy discharge, your exwife could still have to pay you. This is a little tricky. If both you and your ex-wife are jointly liable to a creditor, assigning the debt to just her in the divorce decree does not change the rights of that creditor. If the creditor does not get paid, the creditor can still sue you. But, if that happens, you usually preserve your legal rights to collect the money from your ex-wife, even after her bankruptcy. But, unfortunately, being able to get a judgment against her still does not mean you will ever be able to collect on that judgment. Before you make any decision, you need to know more. There is much helpful information on the notice you received from the Bankruptcy Court. The name and contact information for your ex-wife’s attorney should be there. That attorney ought to be able to provide you with a copy of your exwife’s “Schedules”, “Statement of Financial Affairs” and “Statement of Intent”. These

will give you important information about your ex-wife’s finances, including what debts are listed and whether or not she intends to continue to pay the home mortgage. The notice also contains the date, time and place of your ex-wife’s “341 Hearing”. You have the right to attend that hearing and ask pertinent questions. Of course, this all sounds very confusing and worrisome. Most Bankruptcy attorneys counsel creditors, such as ex-husbands, as well as representing debtors. For a reasonable consultation fee, you can probably get more detailed information and advice. Good luck to you. Ann Ann Shaw is an attorney practicing in Salisbury. She has more than twenty years’ real estate, business law, and bankruptcy law experience. Each month she will address one submitted question of general interest. Responding to any question in print does not create an attorney-client relationship. Attorney-client privilege does not apply to published questions and answers.

FINANCIAL FOCUS – Can Investors Lea rn fro It’s probably not on your calendar, but World Yoga Day takes place on Sunday, February 23. As more people have discovered its healthful benefits, yoga has grown in popularity. But whether or not you practice yoga, you can apply its lessons to other areas of your life — such as investing. Specifically, consider the following yogarelated themes and how they might translate into investment habits that may be beneficial: • Balance — If you observe advanced yoga practitioners, you will be amazed at the balance they exhibit during certain positions. But for serious yoga students, the idea of “balance” goes beyond physical movements and extends to a concept of life that emphasizes, among other things, an avoidance of extremes. As an investor, you too need to avoid extremes, such as investing too aggressively, too conservatively or too sporadically. By building a balanced portfolio, and by investing regularly, you can help improve your chances of making progress toward your financial goals. • Flexibility — Among its many benefits, yoga helps people increase their flexibility — and greater flexibility results in fewer injuries and an increased capacity to enjoy many physical activities. As an investor, you need to be flexible enough to adjust your

22

E

R

U

portfolio as needed while still following a long-term strategy that’s appropriate for your individual goals, risk tolerance and time horizon. • Relaxation — For yoga students, proper relaxation is essential to achieving mental equanimity, emotional balance and inner strength. But relaxation doesn’t always come easily — even experienced yoga practitioners need to work at it. As an investor, you also may need to train yourself to relax because, given the ups and downs of the market, it’s not hard to become overwrought and make ill-advised decisions based on short-term events. Staying calm and maintaining a long-term view of things may help you make better investment decisions. • Positive thinking — Our own thoughts and actions are largely responsible for creating our happiness and success, according to yoga teachings. And positive thinking can play a key role in investing, too. For example, if you were to constantly look at negative headlines, you might conclude that it is pointless to invest for the future because external events — economic instability abroad, political squabbles at home, natural disasters and so on — will just disrupt your plans. Consequently, you

rs Lea rn from Yoga Followers? might decide not to invest, or invest in such a way that can make progress toward your financial goals difficult. But if you maintain a positive attitude, you may be more inclined to invest wisely for your future. • Visualization — In yoga, visualization is often used to reduce stress. At any given time, you might find it difficult to relax, but you can use your imagination to see yourself — and put yourself — in a relaxed state. As an investor, you need to visualize your goals, such as a comfortable retirement, before you can define a strategy to help you work toward them. By seeing yourself where you want to be, you’ll be motivated to take the actions necessary to work toward getting there. Try putting the principles of yoga to work — they may help you become a better investor. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.

Your Timing Won’t Be Off

When You Invest Systematically If one of your worries is whether you’re investing at the right time, it shouldn’t be. By investing a set amount of money on a regular basis, you establish a simple routine that can help make your financial goals a reality.

In addition, investing systematically can help: • Make it possible to use market fluctuations to your advantage • Add potential growth and diversification to your portfolio • Keep your long-term financial goals in focus Investing a set amount of money on a regular basis does not ensure a profit and does not protect against loss in declining markets. Such a plan involves continual investment in securities regardless of fluctuating price levels of such securities. You should consider your financial ability to continue the purchases through periods of low price levels.

I had done my research and decided I wanted three brown egg layers. But alas, the sign said, “minimum of six pullets per order.” I took the plunge and ended up in my car with six very noisy female chicks. I was elated!

Her continual support and encouragement brought out my strengths as a student, a researcher and most importantly my strengths as a person … I know she will continue to influence students every day, just as she has done for me.” Caviglia-Harris “was the most influential figure in my decision to pursue a career in economics. It was Dr. Caviglia-Harris’ encouragement after I took her Introductory Economics course that led me to become an economics major, and her guidance as an advisor that gave me the confidence to pursue a Ph.D. … I know that Jill has had a powerful effect on many students besides me. A fellow alumna of SU told me that she had been on

the verge of quitting college until she took Jill’s class. That student will earn her Ph.D. in economics this year. Jill is one of the top professors I have encountered at any level throughout my academic career.” Weaver’s class “inspired to do great things in my future classroom because of the stories she would share. I was particularly deflated one day because I was not getting called for interviews and many of my friends already had jobs lined up. She talked to me after class. That really helped me, and the thing that most struck me was that she didn’t have to do it. That day she taught me that truly great teachers do the little things to go over and above for their students. Hopefully, I can someday make an impact on my students the way she did for me.”

Yoga for the New Year by Brittney D. Herz

A

h, New Year’s resolutions. Almost everyone makes them; almost no one sticks to them. But if your resolution is to be a better and healthier you it may be time to actually take action and take your life into your own hands. There are of course many ways to do this, and one way is Yoga. Despite the countless amounts of research that historians have put into pinpointing Yoga’s origins, there isn’t a definite conclusion. Yoga was started over 5,000 years ago in India. Although many believe that Yoga is based off of Hinduism archaeologists have found evidence of ancient civilizations performing Yoga exercises before the founding of Hinduism. Originally, Yoga didn’t include physical activity. It was a form of oral communication from teacher to student that was intended to give guidance on dealing with the problems of everyday life. It was also for spiritual growth and emotional

development. This is now referred to as Yoga Sutra and is still the basis of most Yoga exercises today. Hatha Yoga is the physical addition. It is also intended for mental and emotional growth but also prepares and protects the body. There are three main elements to Yoga now; exercise, breathing, and meditation. Yoga was introduced in the United States in the 1800’s but didn’t become popular until the 1960’s. Especially with the New Year approaching there will be countless ads for this exercise machine and this new class and that new pill, so why is Yoga so special? For one, almost anyone can do it. There are levels of difficulty for the most physically active to beginners who have been mostly sedentary. There are also different types of yoga positions that can help with different ailments. Everything from back pain to irritable bowel to headaches to fatigue. Mainly

it will help your flexibility and give you stronger muscles. There are also the mental benefits that you may not get with other types of exercise. It’s true all exercise releases endorphins which in turn make you feel better afterwards. However, not all exercise will help with anxiousness, insomnia, and depression the way that Yoga can. So should you go spend a bunch of money on new Yoga attire, mats, and DVDs? No, but you should start trying Yoga at your speed. Start with some light poses in the morning or right before bed. Make sure you can commit the mental still and calm that you need to really feel the full benefits of doing Yoga. Then add some more intense poses, maybe extend the amount of time. There are many studios in the area that offer different Yoga classes catered towards different levels of experience and different problems.

Happy Valentine’s Day

by Brittney D. Herz

J

ust when you are getting through all of your Christmas cookies, cakes, pies, brownies, breads and whatever other goodies you received, you are bombarded with chocolates and candies! Valentine’s Day is notorious for sweets for your sweetie (and yourself). However if you are concerned about keeping your New Year’s resolution and trying to stay on track with being a more healthy you then there are alternative ways to celebrate.

1. Ask For What You Want.

I know the whole point is to be surprised by the flowers and candy but maybe try voicing at least what you don’t want. There’s nothing wrong with saying ‘I would rather

54

E

you not get me candy this year’. There are plenty of other sweet options like fruit baskets. Or if you really do want that taste of chocolate try chocolate covered strawberries or some sugar free chocolates. You can even contact your local bakeries and see what they have as far as diet or sugar free baked goods.

2. Eat at Locally Owned Restaurants.

Every Valentine’s Day all the restaurants are jammed packed with people trying to make reservations and get in for a nice romantic dinner. This year especially you may want to consider

making reservations because Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday. In order to stay on track with your New Year’s resolution, and support local businesses, try some of our areas local restaurants. The High Spot Gastropub in Cambridge allows you to make a reservation right from their website. Typically a dinner at a sit down restaurant can have up to 1,120 calories, that’s more than half your daily intake. However, if you only eat half and save half for the next day you can help your figure and have something to look forward to tomorrow. Remember to watch your drink calories as well. Stick to light beers, mojitos, or gin and tonics. Most of the local restaurants have special menus like The Globe in Berlin. Also eating at locally owned restaurants can offer you and your date a brand new experience instead of the old runof-the-mill-restaurants. Try any of our local favorites like The Cellar Door, Old West Steakhouse, Thai Rada, or Harvest Moon.

3. Get Active.

Another Valentine’s Day staple seems to be the movies. One large movie theater popcorn can have up to 31 grams of fat! “Oh we will just go and not get any snacks”. That’s

all good and well until you walk in and smell that butter. I say forget the movies are even an option. Do something that gets you and your date on your feet. Go bowling, ice skating, window shopping, dancing, walk in the park, hiking, or bicycling. If you ate at one of our local restaurants they may be in a downtown area. Walk around and check out the local shops and sights. Being more active can actually help you and your date bond better than sitting in a movie. It can give you the opportunity to become more creative with your Valentine date night.

February’s Featured Artist by

Kristin Mallery Hooks

K

ristin Mallery Hooks of Newark Maryland, is a ‘heartist’. She started discovering naturally-occurring heart shapes 10 years ago and photographs them, and now has a collection called Hearts Happen. Hearts Happen is a collection of found hearts, captured with digital photography. No hearts are ever set up, altered or broken in the making of Hearts Happen. It all started with a Dunkin Donuts trash bag, titled ‘Uno’. She saw it on a Boston street, and says it must’ve been driven over about 218 times. Hearts Happen has grown to include hundreds of quirky, unexpected hearts: a scallion in miso soup, tree roots, a bubble bath, clouds, a shadow of a parking meter. Mallery Hooks grew up in Salisbury, Maryland and attended Syracuse University, graduating with a Bachelors in Communications. She lived in Boston from 1993 until 2008, when she found her most special heart, David, and relocated back to Maryland to begin a new chapter of her life. The hearts continue to pop out at her, wherever she is. The Hearts Happen collection offers products such as note cards, posters, journals, wine stoppers, necklaces and magnets and is available online at HeartsHappen.com and in several stores on Delmarva, Pittsburgh and Boston. Ever since her first show, people from all around the world have been sending Mallery Hooks hearts. She is planning to publish a coffee table book of her hearts soon, and is going to include others’ hearts as well. Kristin Mallery Hooks can be reached at Kristin@HeartsHappen.com. She’d love to hear from you.

It’s Not Too Early to Dig in the Garden

by Ron Pilling

S

eed catalogs are piling up on every gardener’s coffee table, full of photos of giant pumpkins, 3-foot long beans and basketballsized lettuces. Yet the thermometer still shows morning temperatures below freezing. What is a gardener to do? Plan, plan, plan, and only then plant (and turn the compost). The Eastern Shore is a garden-friendly environment year-round, with plenty of winter-hardy selections that will keep fresh vegetables on the table all year. But spring is the time to think about preparing the garden for the longest growing season, and February is not too early to actually put some seeds in the ground. Begin with the soil. If it has never been tested, this is the time to do it. The local agricultural extension service can provide a detailed soil test, usually for less than the cost of a bag of fertilizer (the Salisbury office of the University of Maryland Extension Service is at 410-749-6141. For other Eastern Shore locations, visit http:// extension.umd.edu/locations). The test will tell you if your soil is too acidic (and will suggest adding lime) or too alkaline (add garden sulfur). It

62

E

U

will test for nutrients like phosphorus and potassium, and micro-nutrients like zinc, iron and copper. All are essential to maximize your garden’s output. Having the test done is simple. The Extension Service will provide instructions, but in general, gardeners will scrape away any top mulch or leaf mold with a trowel that is free from rust or chemicals from last year’s garden. Then dig a tablespoon-sized lump of soil from about 6 inches below the surface and put it into a bucket equally clean and chemical-free. Do this in various spots on the garden so that when mixed, it is representative of the soil in the entire garden. Mail it to the lab as instructed, sit back and look through those catalogs again, and

A

wait for the results. In mid to late February, when the soil is thawed, turn it until it is soft and non-compacted. Hard soil will not allow the roots to reach water and air. It is not too early to plant snow peas or sugar snap peas – they don’t mind a little frost and cold. Indoors, start tomato and cabbage seeds. In early March start broccoli, brussel sprouts, c a u l i f l o we r, collards, lettuce and kale seeds indoors. About the middle of the month Chinese cabbage, lettuce, peas, potatoes, spinach, turnips, parsnips and radishes can be planted outdoors, and the cabbage seedlings started a couple weeks ago can be moved to the garden. By the end of the month peppers and eggplant can started indoors. April kicks off the serious season for local gardeners. Beets, carrots, Swiss chard, kale, kohlrabi, leeks, lettuce, peas, radishes, spinach, mustard greens should be planted outdoors, and all the seedlings left in the window greenhouse or kitchen counter – except the tomatoes – can

move to the outdoors. Put string beans in the ground before the end of the month. If the soil has been tested, and enhanced with wise use of compost and other corrective additives, the garden will have a good start. If it hasn’t rained about an inch a week, water. Seeds need water to germinate and grow. By May, set aside the seed catalogs and turn instead to the recipes you clipped religiously from the local paper for who knows how many years. The first harvests are not far off, and you will need to be prepared. The photos were all taken in the Berlin Library Community Garden. This garden began in 2010 with the dual purpose of raising fresh vegetables for Diakonia (1000 pounds of produce in 2013 from 500 square feet of beds) and of encouraging the public to start their own organic gardens by providing an example and some education. Anyone interested in the Berlin garden can visit the library and read the garden book that the volunteers keep.
