Holiday Gifts That Keep on Giving If you’re looking for something different to give as a holiday gift this year, you might want to consider a gift that’s more than just “stuff.” Many individuals and families are looking for alternate giving ideas that help people in need. And with one in eight people going to sleep hungry every night worldwide, there is plenty of need to be met. One way you can give a gift that makes a life-changing difference is to shop via Heifer International, a nonprofit humanitarian organization dedicated to ending hunger and caring for the Earth. Heifer currently provides livestock, trees, seeds and training in environmentally sound agriculture practices to families in more than 40 countries, including the United States. Since 1944, Heifer has helped more than 15.5 million smallholder farmer families in more than 125 countries move toward greater self-reliance. Heifer is drawing attention to the need and the opportunity to help through their “AltGift” and “NOW” campaigns, which, respectively, encourage honoring loved ones by giving alternative gifts, as well as showcasing the powerful success stories of women and families who can

now improve their nutrition, generate income, and Pass On the Gift to others in their communities. Here are some exciting ways you and your family can give an alternative gift that will help other families in need: Shop the Gift Catalog at www.heifer. org. Donate a flock of chicks, a rabbit, a goat, a water buffalo or maybe even a heifer to a family somewhere in the world. Your gift will improve their nutrition and help them generate income in sustainable ways. Contribute to one of Heifer’s Special Giving Opportunities. Participate in the Worldbuilders Match Challenge; become a Friend of Heifer to make a monthly gift; or donate to the Disaster Rehabilitation Fund to provide resources that make long-term recovery from natural disasters possible. Fund a project. You and your family

can choose a particular project and help fund the gifts of livestock, training for the community and veterinary care needed to make the project successful. Join Team Heifer. Whether as a family or part of a faith or community group, you can team up with others to raise funds and help Heifer recipients Pass on the Gift, becoming donors themselves who help others in need. Honor someone with your gift. When you give a gift in someone’s

name, they will receive an Honor Card to let them know about the special gift you’ve given. When you give to others, making it possible for them to lift themselves out of poverty and become self-reliant in a sustainable way, you are giving a life-altering gift that will have a positive ripple effect for years to come. Learn more about how you can receive the joy of giving at www. heifer.org.

Consumers Spent $5.5 Billion “Shopping Small” on Saturday Small businesses across the country got their holiday season off to a strong start as millions of consumers “shopped small” on Small Business Saturday and made a big impact on local communities. According to the final installment of the Small Business Saturday Consumer Insights Survey, released today by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) and American Express, consumer awareness of Small Business Saturday jumped to 67 percent from 34 percent just two weeks ago. Of those aware, nearly half (47 percent) shopped on Small Business Saturday. The increased awareness translated into higher spending. Those U.S. consumers who were aware of Small Business Saturday spent on a total of $5.5 billion with independent merchants. Pre-holiday surveys estimated that consumers would spend $5.3 billion. Separately, American Express said Cardmember transactions at small business merchants[1] rose approximately 21 percent compared to last year’s Small Business Saturday. “In an uncertain economy, America’s small businesses have remained a beacon—creating good jobs and supporting the families they employ and the communities around them,” said NFIB CEO Dan Danner. “We are very pleased that so many Americans sought to give back by shopping small this Small Business Saturday. We hope that support of small firms, retailers, restaurants and other independent businesses continues throughout the holiday season and all year round. Continued support of this vital sector is one important way to ensure our economy fully recovers and a healthy private sector is restored.” “Small Business Saturday, in its third year, has become an integral part of the holiday shopping season and consumers were out in large numbers to support their favorite small businesses,” said Susan Sobbott, president of American Express OPEN. “Small Business Saturday celebrated the shops across the c Elected officials in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. championed Small Business Saturday - including President Obama and may senior government officials. The U.S. Senate unanimously passed a Small Business Saturday Resolution, which supports efforts to encourage consumers to shop loPage 4

cally and increase awareness of the value of locally owned small businesses. The resolution received bi-partisan support from more than 40 co-sponsors. More than 350 small-business organizations supported the nationwide initiative with more than 50 Chambers of Commerce and 60 groups organizing events and activities in support of the day. 155 corporations, such as FedEx, Twitter, AOL/Patch and Clear Channel, banded together to promote shopping at small merchants for Small Business Saturday. More than 3.1 million Facebook users “liked” the Small Business Saturday webpage. More than 213,000 tweets were sent in support of Small Business Saturday in November, many leveraging the hashtags #smallbizsat and #shopsmall. This includes consumers spreading the word about the national initiative and business owners promoting offers they created specifically for the day. 40,000 people received $25 Shop Small American Express gift cards courtesy of FedEx for use at small merchants on November 24th. The inaugural Small Business Saturday Insights Survey, released earlier this month by the NFIB and American Express, indicated that 46 percent of independent merchants familiar with the day planned to incorporate Small Business Saturday into their holiday strategy. Two-hundred and twenty thousand small merchants placed permanent point-of-purchase decals

The Newport News

on their storefronts, adding to the 500,000 who placed them in 2011. Online tools and materials were leveraged more than 100,000 times by small business owners to help get the word out about Small Business Saturday. “Broadway Paper experienced a 77.6 percent increase in sales from Small Business Saturday 2011 to Small Business Saturday 2012. This drastic increase is incredible and so wonderful, and largely due to American Express’ campaign to Shop Small!” – Kate Strzok at Broadway Paper in Milwaukee, WI “A huge bump. A lot of Staten Islanders came into the store today. At least 100 percent [increase], so double from what we did last year.” – Daniel Schifter of Casale Jeweler in Staten Island, NY (Source: WCBS-TV New York 11/25/12) “This Small Business Saturday was probably twice as big as last year’s, and the store was packed all day” – Leah Daniels of Hill’s Kitchen in Washington, DC (Source: USAToday.com 11/25/12) “Looking back on last year’s figures I think we more than doubled, yeah it was fantastic. It’s been phenomenal, it’s been fantastic, it’s fun. We were busy from the moment we opened.” – Stephanie Klein of Stephanie’s in Holdrege, NE (Source: NTV – ABC Nebraska 11/26/12) “Sales were the highest they’ve been since the shop’s opening in November 2011. The crowds downtown were comparable to a First Fridays (the monthly Downtown evening shopping event), but

more people were buying.” – Margie Kuzia of Humble Home in Racine, WI (Source: The Journal Times 11/24/12) The second installment of the Small Business Saturday Consumer Insights Survey was conducted among a nationally representative sample of 1,000 males and females 18 years of age or older. The sample was collected using an email invitation and an online survey. The study was conducted anonymously by Redshift Research between November 24th and November 26th, 2012. The survey has a margin of error of +/- 3.1 %, at the 95% level of confidence. November 24th marks the third annual Small Business Saturday, a day to support the local businesses that create jobs, boost the economy and preserve neighborhoods around the country. Small Business Saturday (SBS) was created in 2010 in response to small business owners’ most pressing need: more customers. In 2011, more than 2.7 million Facebook users, 230 public and private organizations, 75 corporations and elected officials in all 50 states and Washington D.C. declared their support for SBS. Last year, more than 500,000 small business owners leveraged an online tool or promotional materials for SBS and 15,000 businesses signed up for free Facebook advertising to promote their products and services in the run up to SBS. American Express is the founding partner of SBS.

Richard Louv, author of the book, Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our C h ild re n f r o m Na t u r e De f i c i t Disorder, argues that kids are so plugged into TV and video games that they’ve lost their connection to the natural world. “Kids aren’t spending as much time outside as they used to, and it’s beginning to affect their mental and physical health,” said ENC Lead Naturalist Meghan Lockwood. “The ENC’s Nature Camp is an easy and safe way for parents to get their kids back outside where they can learn to respect nature while learning science concepts they need to know for school.” Each day, campers (divided into small groups by age) will rotate between three Camp Teachers, where they will participate in exciting, age appropriate hands-on activities. Session 1 themes include Time

Travelers, Nature Games and Wild Winter Wonderlands. Session 2 themes include Outdoor Creativity and Spectacular Senses. After Camp themes include the Art of Culture & Legends, Survival Camp, Real or Imagined and Inventions, Flight & Fantasy. The ENC’s Winter Nature Camps will help bolster a child’s mental and physical health.

The ENC is currently taking applicants for the Winter Nature Camps. Apply for your child today! For more information about volunteering or attending a program at the ENC visit the ENC’s website at www.encenter.org, call (949) 645-8489 or email lori@encenter.org.

PACIFIC SYMPHONY LEAGUE’S MAGICAL NIGHT Dressed in snazzy cocktail attire, more than 100 fans of the lighter side of Pacific Symphony’s programming gathered last Friday night to celebrate the opening of the orchestra’s 201213 Pops concert series. Hosted by the Pacific Symphony League, the Pops Opening Night Celebration took place in the newly renovated Center Club and included cocktails, gourmet delicacies and first-class entertainment. During dinner, guests enjoyed a musical performance by Whitney Kaufman, Principal Pops Conductor Richard Kaufman’s vocally gifted daughter, accompanied by pianist Nelson Kole, before heading to the nearby Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall for a night of Broadway hits. The festive dinner set the mood for the enchanting night of music by the Symphony featuring Alli Mauzey and Julia Murney, two lead singers with powerhouse voices from Broadway’s Tony Award-winning musical, “Wicked.” The pre-concert event—which raised $6,000 for the Symphony’s educational programs (bringing the total over the last five years to $392,214)—was highlighted by a visit from the stars of the concert. Chaired by League member Marion Brockett, the festivities got underway at 5:30 p.m., as guests arrived via a red carpet to mingle and enjoy tasty hors d’oeuvres and “Wicked” cocktails—pink champagne (for Glinda) and vinho verde (for Elphaba)—before being ushered to their tables for an elaborate dinner served under the ambience of a chandelier and candle-lit room. Tables were stylishly decorated with vibrant bouquets of pink roses and purple orchids alongside photos of children from the Symphony’s many music education programs. Guests were greeted by the League’s co-president, Jaye Yaruss, before Symphony President John Forsyte provided an update on the orchestra and also recalled memorable Pops performances, including amusing tales about Bill Medley (the Righteous Brothers) and Ray Charles. Maestro Kaufman then charmed the crowd with tales of past guest artists such as old friend Andy Williams, and also shared exciting details about the Pops season ahead. “I felt the evening was a resounding success,” says Yaruss. “We honored our Friday evening subscribers, brought together patrons from all facets of the Symphony family and celebrated the beginning of our Pops season in style. Of course, a highlight of the evening for me was greeting the wonderful array of guests who came

out to support the League, Pacific Symphony and Richard Kaufman. Every guest tipped their hat to each by their presence at this League event. To be sure, Chris Hartley and staff of the Center Club did not let us down with the elegant new surroundings, fine cuisine and great service.” Surprise guest—soprano Whitney Kaufman—who for two and a half years was a member of the cast of the national tour of “Mama Mia,” sang a number of songs while accompanied by Kole on the piano; these included Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”; ABBA’s “Thank you for the Music”; “Through the Eyes of Love” from “Mary Poppins”; and “But the World Goes ‘Round” from “New York New York.” Kaufman made her symphony debut at age 7 with Pacific Symphony singing in the children’s chorus in the West Coast premiere of music from John Williams’ “Home Alone.” She has been appearing as the principal vocalist in “Disney in Concert” performances around the world since 2009 and now performs in stage productions nationwide. She also frequently appears as a singer and voice-over performer in film and television. “Whitney Kaufman was a true touch of class and a lovely addition to our evening, all the while honoring and delighting her parents and grandparents,” reflects Yaruss. “Having the Divas visit and mingle also added to the excitement and anticipation of the evening, leading up to an extraordinary concert experience. Members of the League were sweetly surprised with long-stemmed roses and pictures with Alli and Julia at the after-concert reception—and it was almost too much icing on the cake! When can we do it again?!” Yaruss adds. Throughout the presentations and entertainment, wine was abundant and dinner was served in several courses, beginning with a goatcheese and candied pecans mixed green salad with honey balsamic vinaigrette and followed by a duo of petit filet mignon and orange roughy with duo sauces, herb risotto and baby vegetables. The meal concluded on a sweet note with strawberry cheesecake and pistachio chocolate mousse. The evening’s chair, Brockett, drew the event to a close by thanking everyone before all departed to enjoy the thrilling, high-energy “Wicked Divas” concert. Chalk full of Broadway and popular tunes, the performance, led by Maestro Kaufman featured “Wicked” marvels Mauzey and Murney per-

forming captivating musical favorites, enhanced by the full symphony orchestra. The program began with the Overture from “Gypsy” and selections from Bizet’s “divaesque” Spanish-infused “Carmen,” followed by Mauzey and Murney singing “All That Jazz” from “Chicago,” hits from “Ragtime,” “Think of Me” from “Phantom of the Opera” and “Ring Them Bells” (in the style of the iconic diva Liza Minnelli). The dynamic singing duo returned to the stage for “My Heart Will Go On” from “Titanic,” “Over the Rainbow” from “The Wizard of Oz” and a finale featuring songs from “Wicked.” Pacific Symphony League: While members of the League vary in age and background, each shares a passion for music. It is through this passion that League members remain

active volunteers in supporting music education and opera-vocal projects throughout Orange County. Since the League’s creation alongside the Symphony’s inception almost 35 years ago, its members have been volunteering and lending a hand with Symphony programs such as Target Symphony in the Cities, Musical Carnival (part of Family Musical Mornings) and running the Symphony Shop in the concert hall lobby during most performances. In addition to volunteering, the League also plays a significant role in fundraising to support the Symphony’s music education programs. In addition to the altruistic efforts made by its members, the League also hosts events, such as the Symphony’s Pops Opening Night.

Girl Scouts Recognizes Outstanding Alumnae and Raise $218,000 at Celebrate Leadership Gala More than 300 guests came together during Girl Scouts’ 100th anniversary year to recognize 12 extraordinary local female leaders, all Girl Scout Alumnae, and raise $218,000 for Girl Scouts of Orange County at the Third Annual Celebrate Leadership Gala at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach. As guests approached the Island Hotel, they were greeted by a custom mint green Fiat, fitted appropriately with a Girl Scout sash and decals, provided by Orange Coast Fiat. During the reception, guests nibbled on a variety of marvelous goodies including Grilled Ginger Shrimp with Cucumbers and Wasabi, Smoked Salmon on a Savory Cheese, Crostini with Olive Tapenade and Roma Tomatoes, Miniature Beef Wellingtons with Red Wine Sauce, Baked Brie in Phyllo with Walnuts, and Southwest Chicken Spring Rolls with Cilantro Plum Sauce. They also enjoyed signature Chocolate Mint Martinis rimmed with crushed Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies, hosted by Blue Ice Vodka. There were more than 100 Silent Auction items available for guests to bid on before heading into the ballroom for a moving program highlighting the dramatic impact of Girl Scouting on the lives of the 12 honorees. Each honoree was matched with a current Orange County Girl Scout through a shared leadership trait, linking these leaders of today with leaders of tomorrow. Each Girl Scout presented her honoree an art canvas that she designed herself to embody the leadership trait they share. The 2012 Celebrate Leadership Honorees were: Victoria Collins, Sophie Hall Cripe, Janet Toll Davidson, Kristina Dodge, Suzanne Huffmon Esber, Tamara Fairbanks, Kathryn Cenci, Judy Koyama, Heidi Miller, Tricia Raymund, Barbara Roberts, and Sudi Shoja. Dinner was delicious with a starter of organic baby greens with chevre, candied pecans, roasted apples and balsamic dressing. The entrée was short rib served on truffle risotto and pan roasted local sea bass served with sweet potato hash and haricot verts. For dessert, guests enjoyed an assortment of mini dessert creations topped by a Girl Scout 100th birthday mint cheese cake. Guests went home with a beautiful 2013 Keepsake Calendar, featuring stunning photographs of the 12 honorees with their partner Girl Scouts. The live auction gave way for some fierce bidding by some, as there was an assortment of exciting items up for grabs; a dinner for four at Disneyland’s Club 33 went for $1,200; a personal golf tournament for 12 at Shady Canyon golf course sold for $2,600; while an 18” strand of Akoya Pearls with diamond rondels from Mikimoto brought in $6,400. There was also a “Lockup and Lunch” - a Personal Tour by Sheriff Hutchens of the Orange County Jail that one lucky winner purchased for $850 and a seven night stay at Las Mananitas Resort in San Jose del Cabo fetched $2,300. A very lucky family also walked away with two First Class Tickets on American Airlines with a 3 night stay at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort at Disney World for $3,700. Funds raised at the Third Annual Celebrate Leadership Gala support Girl Scouts of Orange County’s quality leadership development programs for more than 23,000 Girl Scouts who represent every neighborhood and zip code in Orange County and to recruit, train, and support the more than 10,000 adult volunteers who guide and support them. Girl Scouts is the nation’s preeminent leadership development program in the country and the leading authority on girls’ healthy development. According to a recent study conducted by the Girl Scout Research Institute in conjunction with an independent research firm, women who were Girl Scouts as children display significantly more positive life outcomes than non-Girl Scout alumnae, with higher perceptions of self, higher rates of volunteerism and civic engagePage 10

The Urban Wheel Awards judging panel spent several months determining the most stylish, practical and attainable new vehicles for 2013 by driving and evaluating dozens of cars and trucks in a variety of North American urban settings before settling on the three winners. Each of the three Decisive magazine Urban Vehicles of The Year will be featured in the winter issue of the magazine, which will also be online at www.decisivemagazine.com in addition to all contemporary mobile platforms.

The Electric White Wines of Italy Happy Grapes

By David White Legend has it that a renowned British wine taster was once presented with a flight of wines while wearing a blindfold. He nailed each wine, correctly identifying the grape and the region in which it was grown. Toward the end of the challenge was a glass of water. Upon smelling and sampling it, the taster expressed bewilderment. “I have no idea what this is,” he exclaimed, “but I can assure you it’s something I’ve never had before!” Traditionally, this story has been used to spark a conversation about the futility of blind tasting. The wine world’s smart alecks, however, have taken to replying back with a joke: “Why didn’t he peg it as Pinot Grigio?” Page 16

Sadly, there’s some truth to this retort. All too often, Pinot Grigio is simply a substitute for water. Massmarket bottlings are refreshing and fruity -- and deliver a buzz -- but they’re never very compelling. This reality has tarred the reputation of all Italian white wines. That’s a shame, because Italy produces the most exciting whites in the world. Even Pinot Grigio can be spectacular. Italy has been producing wine for thousands of years. When the ancient Greeks colonized southern Italy, they called it “Oenotria,” or land of the vine. Pinot Grigio gained a foothold in America in 1979, when wine importer Tony Terlato visited Milan in search of the “next great white wine.” Terlato tasted a Pinot Grigio and “was taken by its fresh aromas, its crispness, freshness and the way it paired effortlessly with foods.” The next day, he drove to northern Italy’s Alto Adige region, where Italy’s best Pinot Grigio is grown. Upon arriving, he visited a local restaurant and ordered every Pinot Grigio on the wine list. Of the 18 bottles, Terlato most enjoyed the offering from Santa Margherita. He visited the winery the following day -- and returned to the United States as its sole importer. Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio took

The Newport News

off. Today, it’s America’s most popular imported restaurant wine. Over the past 33 years, however, Pinot Grigio has become a victim of its own success. Santa Margherita isn’t cheap -- it retails for $25. So the market has been flooded with cheap alternatives, led by brands like Cavit, Ruffino, and Ecco Domani. There are better wines for the money. More grape varieties are planted in Italy than any other country in the world. Thousands of Italian wines make their way to the United States. The most exciting whites come from northeast Italy, particularly the regions of Alto Adige, a neighbor to Austria and Switzerland, and Friuli-Venezia Giulia, which borders Slovenia to the east and Austria to the north. Alto Adige is still home to the world’s best Pinot Grigio, but dozens of varieties flourish there. Pinot Bianco, for example, is more floral and mineral-driven than Pinot Grigio. Gewurztraminer, Muller Thurgau, and Kerner are exceptionally aromatic -and display enough sweetness and acidity to complement cream sauces and even spicy foods. In recent months, I’ve become obsessed with Kerner, as it seems to work with everything. Top producers

include Kofererhof and Abbazia Di Novacella, which both make bottlings for under $20. Friuli-Venezia Giulia, commonly shortened to Friuli, is home to a host of obscure, fun, and versatile grapes like Ribolla Gialla and Friuliano. Producers in the region are also known for producing rich, complex blends and crisp, clean Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Southern Italy also generates delicious whites. My favorites come from Campania, where a grape called Fiano thrives. At first, Fiano typically comes across as an easy-drinking quaffer. But it can hold its own at any table -- and the better examples gain complexity with age. One of my favorites, Feudi di San Gregorio’s Fiano di Avellino, runs less than $20. It’s no secret that Italy produces some of the finest red wines in the world. Top Barolo and Brunello di Montalcino easily command hundreds of dollars per bottle. But too many consumers disregard Italy’s whites thanks to the flood of cheap Pinot Grigio that’s come ashore. They shouldn’t. Italy produces more distinctive wines than any other nation -- and its whites are positively electric.

Pacific Theatre Ballet Presents “The Nutcracker Suite”

Photos and Story By: Steve Wylie One of the traditions of the holiday season is the production Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker Suite”. The Pacific Theatre Ballet will present its seventh annual production of this holiday classic on December 15 and 16 at the Laguna Hills Community Center. The Pacific Theatre Ballet, under the direction of Ann-Marie McClellan, works closely with and draws its youthful cast from the Pacific Ballet Conservatory of Aliso Viejo. “The Nutcracker” tells the story of a young girl, Clara, who dreams that her nutcracker doll becomes a prince who fights off the Mouse King, and then takes her to an enchanted Land of Sweets. The Pacific Theatre Ballet’s production features a large cast, many of whom perform or share multiple roles over the six performance weekend. The role of Clara is played by two young and gifted dancers, Kendra Burke and Chloe Koutroulis. The Sugar Plum Fairy will be played by veterans Lauren Lyskoski and Brianne Pattee. The Laguna Hills Community Center, located at 25555 Alicia Parkway, is an intimate venue that is perfect for this production. Refreshments will be served, and guests will have the opportunity to take photos with members of the cast. Performances will be held at 1:00, 2:30, and 4:15 p.m. both days. Tickets are $11.00, and can be purchased through the Pacific Theatre Ballet’s website at www.pacifictheatreballet.com. Page 18
