GIVING THANKS

W

WHEN WE ASKED SEVEN PEOPLE TO SING THE PRAISES of their peers and colleagues for our cover story, every person answered with a resounding “yes.” I’m thankful they took time out of their busy schedules – or in outgoing Town Manager Roger Stancil’s case, recent retirement – to pen these tributes, which start on page 38. You’ll read about the tireless leadership, clear vision and enthusiasm for the job possessed by these folks we’re calling The Influencers. I’m thankful that there are exceptional leaders in our community at nonprofits, in the arts, in our town government and more. I’m also thankful for the generosity of so many of our neighbors and organizations, as highlighted in our People & Places (starting on page 12). I’m in awe of how many locals support good causes year after year, from the thousands of dollars raised at Be Loud! ‘18 to dozens of well-deserving educators who were able to shop for extra supplies to affordable housing being built by Habitat for Humanity of Orange County in Hillsborough for seniors. And on a personal level, I’m thankful for my dog, Olive. I adopted her late last November from Orange County Animal Services, and it’s been the best decision I’ve ever made. Thanks to Olive, I’ve enjoyed each day, seeing Orange County through her eyes and visiting new places, like the Johnston Mill Nature Preserve and the Occoneechee Speedway, that I knew we’d both love. I spent many cold Saturdays in January at the Southern Community Dog Park shivering with other pet parents. We’ve walked the Ayr Mount grounds

and strolled Franklin Street on the prettiest summer evenings. And we made it to the Hargraves Community Center pool for the annual dog swim in September. This will be her first Thanksgiving with me. As my own shout-out to amazing organizations, I want to remind folks to check out the adoptable pet from OCAS (or Paws4Ever) each week on chapelhillmagazine.com – there are so many who need forever homes. I wish you a season of gratitude and maybe even a new furry friend. CHM

Today, the animal hospital employs nearly 30 animal care professionals in its state-of-the-art 5,000-square-foot treatment facilities – including full boarding and grooming services.

I really do. I’ve been humbled by the honors.” Born in Chapel Hill as the second of six children, Lillie started working at the former North Carolina Memorial Hospital in ninth grade after school and would eventually retire as a nurse in 1996. “I lived in Pottersfield on Brooks Street. I would just walk up Church Street. I’d cut through the fraternity places and stop and eat the grapes off the grapevine and go on to get to the hospital,” she recalls. Along with her after-school job, Lillie played guard for Lincoln High School’s girls basketball team and babysat for Christopher and Barbara Fordham’s children. She married Cleavon Atwater in 1961 and raised two daughters, Jo Ann and Donna, in her hometown. She has served as chair of the Carrboro Human Services Advisory Commission, on the Board of Elections and as a trustee of her church, Cathedral of Hope. More than 20 years ago, Lillie was inspired by UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center volunteers, who visited and encouraged her when she was first diagnosed with breast cancer. “The ladies came around and had some gifts for me. I thought, ‘I want to do that,’ and I did. And I really enjoyed it. Growing up in a big family taught me to jump in and help where help is needed.” Lillie, now 78, has done just that, speaking to groups and doing

whatever is needed to raise awareness about breast cancer, particularly among the local African-American community. “The ads for breast cancer care only showed white women at that time. Black women get breast cancer. I thought people need to hear about this, because if you treat it early, there is hope that you can be cured.” Lineberger recently featured her in a video about 20-year survivors. Today, Lillie is in a brave battle against a second diagnosis of breast cancer and other medical issues. “Life is good, and I’m just not going to succumb to it. I have cancer, but cancer doesn’t have me.” She still mows her own grass and isn’t ashamed to ask for help with the pull cord to get it started. “It’s good exercise,” she says. Lillie remembers a time when people knew their neighbors, spoke to one another and made eye contact more often. “You can’t turn back time. And I’m not anti-change. I just hope that we don’t get so big that we lose the touch that we have for humanity, that we don’t lose community and caring about one another. I think we do this one step at a time,” she says. “Get to know people. Meet your neighbors. Speak to people. It’s amazing how people in Chapel Hill will just start talking with you. Make time for people. “I’ve been on this street for 50 years now. When I hear, ‘Hey, Lillie,’ I know that’s somebody who’s known me a long time.” CHM

TURKEY TROT ONE FAMILY’S EARLY-MORNING THANKSGIVING TRADITION REMINDS THEM TO BE THANKFUL BY SUSAN AND TOM HOERGER

JUNE 26-30, 2019

If you come to our Chapel Hill home for Thanksgiving, there are two rules:

1 You must participate in the Cardinal Track Club’s Gallop & Gorge 8K run at 8 a.m. Thanksgiving morning in Carrboro.

2 You must run it wearing a turkey hat. Your hat can have the turkey who is dressed as a football referee, the turkey in running shoes or the turkey dressed as a chef. Or, you can wear one of the grandma-made crochet turkey hats off Etsy. We provide the hats, but it’s first come, first choose at our house.

It isn’t the same group of people every year. We have no relations in town. Our group is an ever-revolving set of far-flung relatives, plus whichever college or graduate students we have recently “adopted.” Not a runner? That’s not the point – just do your best. We’ve done this so many years now that I can’t recall how it started, but I do know why we continue. Since we have a different assortment of guests every year, being forced by your


hosts to run together in the same big crowd is a good icebreaker and bonding experience. Having to wake up early to partake in a beautiful Carolina morning … now that makes you feel alive. Why the hats? To entertain the crowd sure, but mostly it is for us. It is hard to take yourself or your performance time too seriously when you are wearing a large cartoon turkey on your head. The race just feels like a big street party and a homecoming for those – like our sons – who grew up here but moved away. This ritual is also an act of gratitude. Our entry fees go to causes that help others. Also, our family, like many, has been hit with chronic illness, and we are thankful for the ability to run, walk or just creep along. We no longer take that for granted. If you are still able to move and still able to gather around the table, then do so and give thanks. „

HAPPY-APPY HOLIDAYS ORGANIZE FOR THE END-OF-THE-YEAR CELEBRATIONS WITH IDEAS FROM THE NEAT FREAK BY PERRI KERSH

A

S THE HOLIDAYS APPROACH,

there is often a feeling of elated anticipation mixed with a smattering of dread. There is so much to do and only so much time. Meals to plan, parties to host, travel to arrange, gifts to buy and joy to create… it can take a toll! Make this the year you vow to let technology take over some of the heavy lifting, so you can relax and delight in the season. MEALS The holidays often mean that you’re doing a lot of extra cooking. This is an ideal time to put a reliable meal-planning app to work. A favorite is Big Oven (available for Android and iOS). This free app has more than 250,000 stored recipes and includes a virtual grocery list based on chosen recipes. It also has a handy leftover feature that allows you to type in any of your extra ingredients and get some suggested recipes to use them in. PARTIES If the holidays don’t feel complete without a party or two, consider using Wunderlist to help you stay ohso-organized. This organizing app will allow you to create a timeline, set reminders, store your guest list and keep you from missing deadlines as the big day approaches. You can also share assignments with others so you don’t have to do all of the hard work. TRAVEL If you’re headed over the river and through the woods this holiday season, simplify your travel with a packing app such as 34

chapelhillmagazine.com November 2018

Packing Pro ($2.99 for iOS). Ideal for families who need multiple packing lists, this app even encourages you to take pictures so you can be reminded of exactly which item you intended to pack. This can come in handy if you’re traveling and attending special events and want to make sure you pack just the right outfit and accessories! GIFTS Is there a “must-buy” gift for a person in the family? Or that gadget that almost never goes on sale that tops a loved one’s list? Use Google Alerts to keep an eye on possible sales or availability for that hot item of the year. The more specific you are, the more likely you are to find the best deal. JOY Last but not least, the holidays are supposed to be about joy, happiness, togetherness and love. Don’t let all of your to-do’s keep you from finding peace in the midst of self-imposed chaos! Consider an app like Calm or Headspace to keep you relaxed and in the moment as you enter the most wonderful time of the year. Too much ho-ho-ho and not enough “ohmmm” can turn anyone into a Grinch. Find time each day to center, relax and remember what the season is all about. Keep neat! „

CHEF’S TABLE WE ASKED CHEFS, BESIDES TURKEY, WHAT DISH COMPLETES YOUR THANKSGIVING TABLE? PHOTO BY JAMES STEFIUK

Nicholas Savli Fusion Fish In my background, food is endless and I think having my family there completes it. The food is just an extra thing. My mom just passed, so when I think of Thanksgiving, I think of my mom. To be honest, it’s having my mom there – that’s what completes it without the turkey. If I had to say something, a fresh cranberry sauce would be nice – and great stuffing because my mom made that, too. Michael Pryor Trilogy Definitely sweet potato casserole with brûléed marshmallows. This earns a spot on the main table (and not the dessert table) because it pairs well with salty brined turkey and the acidic cranberry sauce. It really rounds out Thanksgiving dinner. David Sadeghi Town Hall Grill At our Thanksgiving, fried Maine lobster tail and oyster stuffing is something that we only do at Thanksgiving. Everyone gets a lobster tail and as much turkey as they want. Suzie Keenan Olio & Aceto Cafe Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and it is not complete without green bean casserole with fresh green beans and homemade mushroom sauce. I dream of it all year and refuse to make it until Thanksgiving to keep it special. Brendan Cox Oakleaf We always host at our house and the more the merrier. Our favorite year was when we had relatives from North Carolina, Maryland and Los Angeles all in town for the holiday. We removed the furniture from our formal living room so that we could set up for dinner for 26 – now that was fun! We love Brussels sprouts, absolutely love them in our house, even the kids. A Thanksgiving table isn’t complete in our house without them. I like to roast them with smoked bacon, rosemary, shallots and apples on high heat for caramelization. Just before it goes on the table, I drizzle on some aged balsamic.

Aaron Vandemark Panciuto Our Thanksgiving table isn’t complete without a cranberry crumble. Introduced by my mother-in-law, it rounds out the plate with its tart-sweet fruit and a little bit of crunch among all the soft potatoes and tender rolls. It’s usually the one dish with no leftovers as it makes fast friends with the vanilla ice cream and pies that shortly follow dinner. Cranberry Sauce 2 ½ cups raw cranberries 3 cups red or green apples (or a mix of both) ½ cup sugar Mix the above together and press into a greased casserole dish. Topping 1 stick butter 1 cup oatmeal ½ cup brown sugar ½ cup flour Dash of salt (optional) Melt butter and add other ingredients. Spread over cranberry mixture. If desired, top with pecans.

NTHUSIASTIC. GENEROUS. COMMUNITY-MINDED. SMART. I first met Natalie when she applied for our much sought-after and specialized position to “manage” FRANK Gallery. Filled with more than 20 well-established, headstrong, opinionated creatives, the gallery drives everyone’s work and talent to our Chapel Hill community and beyond. Natalie appeared with a vibrance and a sense of confidence that was true and pure, joyous actually. With a background in fashion merchandising, European studies and art history, Natalie is quick to understand the subtle specialties of each of us and translate them into the BY BARBARA TYROLER stewardship of our talents. Having lived abroad and traveled with her family her entire youth, she has developed a knack for spreading her energy and enthusiasm to our audience. And, she’s an artist herself, making glass and ceramic tile mosaics. Natalie is relatively new to our gallery. She began when we were still on Franklin Street and jumped right into action when we moved to University Place. In order to be a gallery manager, one needs to possess a unique set of skills – flexibility, creativity, a heart for diversity and a head for logistics and management. Natalie is always learning something new, always juggling so many people, but she always does this with generosity and grace.

in sharing leadership, and what that means for us as members of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro NAACP chapter is that she works hard to make sure that every committee is really working well. One of the things that she’s always looking for in each committee is having one young person and one more seasoned person act as co-chairs. She works hard to make sure we have the correct community connections working with other groups like Justice United, OAR and the League of Women Voters. She’s big on being very organized, and she’s a person who empowers other people to do the work. She’s really good about getting down to the nitty-gritty and deciding what the issue is, deciding how to organize behind an issue and then deciding how to implement a plan that’s effective across the board. I think [one of the reasons we won North Carolina branch of the year in 2017] was our ability to be effective in the community, to help other people and to help the chapter continue to grow. She believes in the work, and she’s a servant leader. Unlike for some in leadership, it’s about the work for her. On a personal level, she’s a very supportive friend. She’s a fantastic cook – anytime you get invited to her home with she and her husband, you feel like you’re at home.

MAURICE JONES

BY ROGER STANCIL

TEADY. KNOWLEDGEABLE.

Professionally curious. An active listener. Respectful. These words describe the Maurice Jones I came to know over the last two weeks of August. As he began his tenure, we spent a great deal of time together as I shared with him the institutional knowledge and working relationships I had developed over 12 years as Chapel Hill’s town manager. During our time together, we learned our lives had other similarities besides our profession. We both came to Chapel Hill after long careers in other cities, leaving them amidst some political turmoil to come to a new place and a fantastic opportunity. Sometimes swirling controversy moves managers along to different places where, tempered by our experience, we lead again. We both value our families and struggle with the effect a move in our career has on them. City and town managers are survivors. Nonpolitical professionals, working in a political world, we help communities navigate to a vision of themselves. While facilitating discussion to fashion a community strategy for the future, we also lead a team of professionals from a variety of fields to provide municipal services people cannot provide themselves. High expectations of service often collide with a need for affordable tax rates. To achieve both requires the ability to manage multimillion dollar budgets and maintain high fiscal standards. City and town managers do this while working for a body of elected community representatives in a transparent and open environment of decision making. In the introductory words of his employee newsletter, Maurice expressed his appreciation for both the strong local government and municipal 42

organization he found in Chapel Hill. He has also expressed his appreciation for the robust leadership and dedicated employees who work for the town. With what I have seen, I agree with Maurice that, “There will be challenges along the way, but I’m confident we will face them with thoughtfulness, innovation and compassion.” Successful managers are not defined by a particular point of view based on the current debate, but learn from experiences to lead from wherever we find ourselves. I believe Chapel Hill is in good hands with Maurice Jones as town manager. Roger Stancil served as Chapel Hill town manager from 2006-2018

LTHOUGH NEW TO THE CHAPEL

Hill Town Council, it hasn’t taken long for Allen to make his mark. This comes as no surprise; in some sense, he’s been preparing himself for years. Allen proudly admits to being a nerd in high school – if a track athlete and later, college football player can ever truly be a nerd – and attending council meetings back then. He was clearly paying attention. As a young, mature, newly married Chapel Hill native, Allen brings a unique and important perspective to the council’s deliberations. He is passionately committed to social justice, ensuring that the voices who are traditionally underrepresented are heard and listened to. In order to further these goals, he is one of the leaders of Training for Action and Progress, which helps bring new voices into government. It is a pleasure to be able to work with Allen as he starts, what I expect, will be a long and important career in public service.

SOR ANGELA HOYOS BY PILAR ROCHA-GOLDBERG

I

F YOU WANT TO KNOW

somebody who really has passion for the work she does for the community, you should meet Sor Angela Hoyos. She is very helpful but at the same time, she’s empowering the community to help themselves. She goes beyond. She is a community specialist in the Carrboro office, so she is there mainly waiting for people to see what they need. It could be a simple thing, like they got a letter in the mail in English and want help reading it. It could be a case of domestic violence and they need help, or it could be that they need a lawyer for an immigration case. I think it is very important to have a person that is sensitive to what our community is going through, but also to have the calm and patience to think about solutions. This is true of all of us at El Centro – you get frustrated because some things are out of your control and you wonder what you can do. But then a person like her, with her personality, she thinks, ‘This is hard, but I need to help in some way to lower the anxiety of this person in the community and make things happen.’ She’s good at finding the resources and the stakeholders and making those relationships – part of our mission is to build bridges. She’s good about acknowledging that we can’t do everything and we can’t do it alone. Pilar Rocha-Goldberg is the president & CEO of El Centro Hispano

Reason for Renovation The kitchen in our old house was closed off from the living areas, so we knew we wanted a more open floor plan that would allow for entertaining large groups. Because the kitchen is fairly large, I decided to go with the trend of having mixed materials on our cabinetry in order to add some interest. I had seen a photo of an ebonized oak kitchen that I loved, so decided to do a similar look on our island and vent hood. After pricing out all-custom cabinetry with CKS, we decided to do a mix of semi-custom and custom in order to stay within budget. I liked the contrast of the more sophisticated taupe painted cabinetry with the more rustic feel of the island. I also introduced contrast by using a honed granite countertop for the perimeter counters and a stunning polished Cosmos granite slab for the island. An iridescent glass mosaic tile backsplash in the kitchen and antiqued glass subway tile backsplash in the butler’s pantry helped to bring in light near the dark countertops. In addition to the standard floods overhead, I used oversized drum light fixtures above the island which gives a lovely diffused light. I also loved the recent trend of mixing metals, and so have incorporated gold, silver

and aged bronze into light fixtures, faucets and cabinet knobs. The idea of having a keeping room off the kitchen was appealing, since everyone always seems to end up in the kitchen anyway! We wanted to have lots of light, which led to the installation of skylights in the keeping room ceiling. We decided to place the fireplace in the keeping room rather than the living room since that tends to limit the placement of furniture. It also gave us a focal point for the keeping room. Having a raised bar between the kitchen and breakfast area helps conceal any dishes left on the kitchen counters from view. It also makes a nice buffet/serving area for entertaining. Highlight The highlight of the kitchen area is definitely the pecky cypress ceiling. One of my favorite interior designers had used it in a home dÊcor magazine I saw many years ago, and I thought it would be a perfect touch for the vaulted ceilings of the keeping and breakfast rooms. I was right! Everyone who sees the house comments on it. We liked it so much, we also used it on our master bath ceiling. „ November 2018 chapelhillmagazine.com

RIDGEFIELD CONTEMPORARY Designer The Kitchen Specialist Style Transitional (with fresh contemporary elements!)

PHOTOGRAPHY BY ARTIE DIXON

Neighborhood Ridgefield/Briarcliff Reason for Renovation It was time for an update! When we purchased it in 2002, the house was still in its original 1962 form, and the kitchen retained its original footprint and cabinetry. We knew we wanted a more contemporary, open space so we waited until we were able to tackle a large renovation to achieve that vision. Highlight We love the dining room cabinetry and tile work behind it that adds a personal and artistic flair. The updated cabinetry and workspace makes the kitchen so much brighter and more functional. But I think the element we have enjoyed the most is the island. It provides the perfect gathering space for family and friends alike, creating the warm, social environment we dreamed of. We are amazed that two years post-renovation we still look around and can’t believe this is our home – there is not a thing we would change! „

KEEPING IT SUSTAINABLE IN COKER HILLS The Team Designed by Pearl Arnold and built by Brent Arnold, partners of Triple Aught Design + Build, LLC Style Modern, natural, sustainable Neighborhood Coker Hills Square Footage 470 Inspiration While the homeowners were happy with the layout of the kitchen, they really wanted to connect with the gorgeous outdoors of their surrounding property. To ‘let the outside in,’ we removed a bay window from the dining room and installed a large storefront window in its place. This huge expanse of glass makes both the dining area and kitchen feel more light and airy. The bamboo cabinets provide a great contrast with the dark hardwood floors that run throughout the main level of the home. Achieving a light and airy feel to the space using natural and sustainable materials was critical to the project. The homeowners asked us to exhibit artifacts from their world travels, which finished off the details of the space and made the kitchen uniquely theirs. „

The Inspiration The original kitchen had cheap white particle board cabinets that were worn out from decades of use. The kitchen had a dysfunctional layout, and it was closed off from the dining room. They wanted an open and fun eat-in kitchen that they could live in and enjoy with their two growing boys. We needed to integrate an open mudroom from off the garage and an office/bill paying center into the design as well. Alberto is Italian, and they wanted a modern Italian kitchen with Scavolini-type cabinetry, but we couldn’t get it locally. When we found it in New York City, the cost was astronomical. It was all stock units with no customization available, so I designed the cabinets. We used a local cabinet company (Bruce Pratt) to make the cabinets and had a local painting company (Hansell Painting Co.) paint the cabinets with metallic paint. We even incorporated IKEA aluminum cabinet doors into the upper cabinets to lighten the look. A highly functional, beautiful, unique, fun, eye-catching modern kitchen that was truly theirs. Things that were important to homeowners A separate appliance garage and coffee garage, an eat-in table for casual family dinners, curves (desk, mudroom, hood, table) and using the existing space.

You wouldn’t pick this lot if you wanted to put a Colonial house on a corner lot.” The Johnsons moved to Hillsborough after 27 years in Chapel Hill’s Highland Woods.

or a quaint town cottage – a good fit for Hillsborough. But the couple is aware that not all agree. “I’m not sure we would have gotten the plans approved a year later,” Reed says. If the exterior of the Johnsons’ home is meant to fit into its local surrounding, the inspiration for the equally sparse interiors came from much farther away. Reed’s family emigrated from Sweden and the Johnsons’ connections to the country run deep. One of the couple’s three sons, Karl-Erik, even changed his last name back to Jansson, the

family’s original name that had given way to Johnson in the U.S. Karl-Erik teaches music in New York. Son Garth lives locally while Austin is in Delaware. Swedish influences are highlighted throughout the home. “I’ve lived in Sweden twice, and Reed has three times,” Kay says. “We chose hanging lamps that are consistent with a Swedish style. It looks like they were just taken out of a Swedish church.” The home’s great room – encompassing the living room, a

dining area and kitchen – is dominated by a 6-foot-wide black chandelier, with a smaller version over the adjacent stairway. A pair of circular, black metal bands, lit by simple candle-like lights, the chandelier imposes an air of gothic simplicity. “I don’t know how many times you’ve been in a small Swedish church,” Kay says with a laugh, and continues. “You find a pretty practical design for a small space, unencumbered by pillars, so the congregation can be together. You have to have a lot of little candles, and the circles allow you to put a lot of candles in one space.” Kay and Reed worked with Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery in Carrboro to find both fixtures. The great room’s other dominant feature is the fireplace and hearth, which is covered in jagged gray stones all the way to the ceiling. The ceiling is covered in pine, adding to the woodsy cabin feel. The Johnsons finished with custom light switch covers that depict snowy birch trees, a candleholder on the main dining table that reaches upward to the main chandelier with matching black metal arms and a pine bookcase hutch. That came from the most mainstream of Swedish sources: IKEA. „

Lake Hogan Farms

THIS NEIGHBORHOOD IS FIRMLY PLANTED IN THE ROLLING HILLS OF A FORMER DAIRY FARM

BY MAT T WHITE | PHOTOGRAPHY BY BETH MANN

FTER LAURA AND MIKE MALINCHOCK FIRST TOURED a house in Lake Hogan Farms, Laura asked their realtor to keep driving to extend their tour of the neighborhood to some other streets. The agent wondered why – almost no other homes were for sale. The Malinchocks weren’t sure about moving to Chapel Hill yet, even though after many years in Philadelphia, says Laura, “I’d had enough of cold winters.” But as they took some informal tours, they immediately loved the feel of Lake Hogan Farms, a 300-acre neighborhood built on rolling former pasture land just off Homestead Road near Carolina North Forest. But Laura wanted to be sure that Lake Hogan Farms was the kind of neighborhood where kids gathered to play outside. She and Mike have three sons, and as they contemplated 80

moving, her oldest, Wesley, then 14, was just entering high school. “I counted basketball goals,” Laura says. “I thought, ‘There’s got to be kids in the neighborhood if there are basketball goals.’” After spotting what she considered “a suitable number” of hoops, they also came across a house that had gone up for sale so recently, the sign had just been put in the yard that day. They’ve lived there for seven years now. “I love that it’s quiet, and the neighbors are so caring,” says Laura. “It’s a wonderful community of people. If we’re ever away and we need some kind of help with the house, there’s someone to jump right on that need.” Laura and Mike’s house backs up to Hogan Lake, which sits at the center of the development, one of several elements of the landscape in the neighborhood that date to the property’s

history as a family dairy farm. The Hogan family created the lake in 1929 by damming Bolin Creek, which still runs through the neighborhood. Though used as a farm pond, the lake was often the site for UNC students and staff picnics. Today, it’s a gathering spot and landmark for residents. “We enjoy sitting on our deck, watching the egrets and blue herons,” Laura says. “We even had a beaver last year.” The spirit of a family farm runs throughout the neighborhood. A restored grain silo sits at the neighborhood clubhouse just across the parking lot from the pool, and of the 300 acres, nearly a third are dedicated to open community space. Running and biking trails crisscross the neighborhood, connecting nearly every street to the paved Lake Hogan Farms Greenway. The more intrepid can follow informal trails and cut-throughs to other neighborhoods and even Carolina North Forest’s web of trails. „

JUST THE FACTS: Lake Hogan Farms Where Lake Hogan Farms is located on rolling former pasture land just off Homestead Road in Chapel Hill, near Carolina North Forest. The 300-acre neighborhood was once a family farm, of which 90 acres is common area that includes a clubhouse for events, a pool, tennis and basketball courts, a playground and walking trails by a lake and Bolin Creek. One of the original farm families of Chapel Hill, the Hogan family, settled here in the 1700s and ran a dairy farm on the property from the 1930s to 1995. The neighborhood is abundant with green spaces, mature trees and flowers, and it’s an ideal spot for an active lifestyle with opportunities for walking, running and biking. Maple View Farm Ice Cream is also conveniently located nearby.

Bob Blouin is a dedicated runner and enjoys hitting the neighborhood trails every day around 5 a.m.

The Hogan family settled in Chapel Hill in the late 1700s, and four brothers started a dairy farm on the property in the 1930s which was operational until 1995. As farmers, the Hogan family helped bring electricity to Chapel Hill. A three-mile line to their farm was the first federally financed rural electrification project in the nation, according to documents the family submitted to the North Carolina Historic Preservation Office. When the project fell short, the Hogans cut pine trees from their property for power poles. The Hogan family remains active farmers less than a mile from the neighborhood that bears their name at Magnolia View Farm. And though the Hogans hold a place in Chapel Hill lore, the most famous resident of Magnolia View is UNC’s official ram mascot, Rameses. The rams that serve as Rameses have come from the Hogan farm for over 90 years. Like the Malinchocks, Maureen and Bob Blouin came to Chapel Hill with teenage concerns. Bob served as dean of the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy and recently became the university’s provost. But when they arrived 15 years ago, their son, Daniel, was headed into his junior year. To ease his transition, rather than send Daniel to school wherever they landed, they put him in charge: Daniel would tour several local high schools, and Maureen and Bob would find a house in the district he picked. After deciding that East Chapel Hill School reminded him of the parochial school he was leaving behind, he toured Chapel Hill High School, just minutes from Lake Hogan Farms. „ 86

Maureen and Bob Blouin enjoy a quiet moment on their screened-in porch.

“The first person he met was goth head to toe,” remembers Maureen. “That was new to him, and he was looking for a place with new experiences.” After 15 years, Maureen and Bob have considered moving and even put their house up for sale once. They had an offer in five hours. But Maureen says, “We couldn’t find anywhere we liked more than here,” and they stayed put. But there are other families in the neighborhood who, in similar circumstances, have moved from one Lake Hogan Farms home to another. “One of the unique things is the variety of house sizes,” says Laura. “So empty nesters swap houses with younger couples who are outgrowing where they live. It speaks to how people want to stay here.” Indeed, houses in Lake Hogan Farms stretch from 2,500-squarefoot family two-levels to estate-style 5,500-square-foot homes with a dozen or more rooms. Laura says she and Mike intend to stick around as well. Their youngest son, Cole, is where Wesley was when they arrived: 14 and headed into high school. Now 21, Wesley is a senior at James Madison, and Evan is a sophomore at Appalachian State. And they’ve made changes to the house over the years, too, including a family basketball hoop. “It was one of the first things we added,” says Laura. CHM

Brunch, to me, is the pinnacle of any weekend. And Venable’s is so nice, they do it twice – every Saturday and Sunday. It’s a goto before the Carrboro Music Festival kicks off, or post-morning run or bike ride; I’ve even stopped by Venable after a potluck brunch at a friend’s house just for the Venable bloody mary. (Any brunch is basically incomplete without a solid bloody mary, and Venable’s is top-notch. Ask your bartender to make it extra spicy!)

When it comes to the entree, I’m always torn between the herbed-roasted eggs and the huevos rancheros. The eggs – fresh from Latta’s Egg Ranch – arrive piping hot in a skillet with minced herbs and cream. To the side is crunchy, toasted crostini perfect for dipping, applewood-smoked bacon and country potatoes. It’s a hearty, soul-filling breakfast, but I almost never turn down huevos rancheros, and I particularly enjoy the way Venable prepares it with black beans and two eggs (I get mine over medium) nestled in a crispy flour tortilla and topped with a solid serving of cheddar cheese and pico de gallo, cilantro and a mildly spicy tomatillo ranchero sauce. Paired with that spicy bloody mary, this brunch brings the heat. Herbed-Roasted Eggs, $12; Huevos Rancheros, $12; Venable Bloody Mary, $9 – Amanda MacLaren

Curry in a Hurry Since we now have more Indian restaurants in our neighborhood than you can shake a stick at, it’s hard to believe this is a fairly recent phenomenon. Not too long ago most Southerners experienced the joys of curry only at home. Curries were served in coffeehouses around London in the early-18th century, but eateries featuring Indian food were rare in America until more than 200 years later. Colonists learned about curries at the dinner table, not in restaurants. British settlers arrived with cookbooks such as Hannah Glasse’s 1747 publication, ‘The Art of Cookery Made Plain and Easy,” including the first curry recipe known to be written in English. My mother made a cream-based curry made almost exactly the way Mrs. Glasse describes. Instead of ginger and turmeric,

Big Flavor Chicken Curry 10-12 Servings 1 ½ tsp. ground turmeric 1 ½ Tbsp. whole cumin seeds 1 ½ Tbsp. whole fennel seeds 1 Tbsp. salt 1 tsp. black pepper 10 boneless chicken thighs ¼ cup vegetable oil 2 large onions, roughly chopped 2 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger root 6 garlic cloves, peeled and minced 1 red chili, minced or ½ tsp. red chili flakes 3 cups chicken stock 3 cups diced tomatoes 4 cinnamon sticks 3 bay leaves 1 ½ pounds gold potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes 1 lb. carrots, peeled and cut into slices 3 Tbsp. lemon juice 1 cup fresh mint or parsley, chopped Basmati rice

however, she used dry curry powder, itself a British concoction. According to legend, an Indian cook brought to London by a returning East India Company nabob invented curry powder. To satisfy his employer’s acquired taste for spicy food, the enterprising fellow ground together dried chiles, turmeric root and coriander and cumin seeds to replicate the spices used in Indian kitchens. After curry powder became wildly popular in England, McCormick & Company recognized its potential and created a blend that was a staple of my mother and grandmothers’ spice rack. It tasted then exactly the way it does now – a nicely balanced blend of spices without much heat, perfect for the quintessential Southern dish, Country Captain, that both my grandmothers served at their ladies’ luncheons.

I still fall back on McCormick in a pinch, but now that we have easy access to fresh ginger root, turmeric and so many other formerly exotic spices, there’s little need to use a dry blend. Though I could eat curry every day of my life, I still think of it as company food. It meets all my crowd-feeding criteria: it’s fast, easy, can be made ahead of time and everyone loves it. If you’re lucky, you’ll have leftovers. Here’s a curry we are especially fond of. No need to grind the spices or even brown the chicken; the flavors are startlingly fresh, and so far, everybody I’ve served it to has loved it.

Mix the turmeric, cumin, fennel, salt and pepper together. Sprinkle half of this mixture on the chicken thighs, reserving the other half. In a Dutch oven, sauté onions in the oil until translucent. Add ginger, garlic and chili. Cook, stirring, less than a minute, then add 3 cups of chicken stock, tomatoes, cinnamon sticks, bay leaves, remaining spice mixture and chicken. Simmer, covered for 30 minutes. Add potatoes and carrots. Simmer 15-20 minutes more until vegetables are soft and chicken fully cooked. Transfer chicken pieces to a plate. Remove the cinnamon sticks and bay leaves. When the chicken has cooled off, cut or tear it into bite-size pieces. Simmer the curry another five minutes until the liquid is reduced to a thin sauce. Add extra stock or water if needed. Return the chicken to the curry and heat until warm or refrigerate until ready to serve, then reheat on the stove. Serve over cooked rice, generously sprinkled with mint or parsley. CHM

ECKER & VANBEEK BY JACQUELYN MELINEK PHOTOGRAPHY BY PINEHURST PHOTOGRAPHY PINEHURSTNCPHOTOGRAPHY.COM

A

After college, Chapel Hill native Terra Claire Ecker joined a volleyball league to stay active. Right before playoffs, she walked into the gym and immediately noticed Jordan VanBeek, the referee. To play fair, she promised she wouldn’t introduce herself to him unless they won. After they beat the other team, she built up the courage to talk to him. Little did she know, Jordan went home that night and told his roommates about her. They met at Top of the Hill’s Back Bar for their first date, and the rest was history. After closing on a home in November 2017, Jordan told Terra he wanted to bring their dog, Rocky, over to check it out and get his approval. Before they walked in, Jordan proposed, saying he wanted to go inside as a family. After a “yes,” she was surprised by family, friends

and Champagne awaiting her inside. To top it off, Jordan had a video featuring both of their extended families and UNC men’s basketball player Theo Pinson offering their congratulations. The couple will tie the knot in May 2019 in Pinehurst. CHM

WEAVER & KELLOMÄKI

BY TAYLOR MABREY PHOTOGRAPHY BY ARIANA BELLE PHOTOGRAPHY ARIANNABELLEPHOTOGRAPHY.COM

Chapel Hill High School graduate Rachel Weaver met her

husband, Apex native Erik Kellomäki, while at UNC. They connected through a mutual friend at a dinner with her hallmates freshman year and began dating on the last day of classes that year. It was during their last week on campus before graduation when Rachel wanted to go on a walk to relax. Erik suggested they go to one of their favorite spots, Merritt’s Pasture. They got caught in the rain, but after it passed, they made it to the top of a hill in the middle of the field where Erik got down on one knee and popped the question. Rachel is hard to surprise, but this definitely surprised her! They celebrated with friends at Spanky’s later that evening. With the help of their parents, Paul and Laura Weaver and Hannu and Jeanne Kellomäki, the two said “I do,” at Trinity United Methodist Church in Savannah on September 23, 2017. They wrote letters to each other before the ceremony rather than having a first look, which made her walk down the aisle much sweeter. Rachel recalls her favorite moment as “standing on the balcony of our reception venue at sunset, just Erik and I, taking in the fact that we were finally married!” She had also included succulents in her bouquet and was able to propagate some of their leaves. Now she has new plants that are a constant reminder of her wedding day. Rachel is a physician assistant student while Erik is an Infantry Officer in the Army, stationed near Savannah. CHM

MOONEYHAM & HAYWOOD

U BY CARA SILIAKUS PHOTOGRAPHY BY KRISTA STEVENS SIXFOOTPHOTOGRAPHY.COM

UNC grads Kelly Mooneyham and Mark Haywood met in fall of 2010 through Cru and The Summit Church, taking many lunch trips to Bojangles. They were friends for several years before they realized that there was something more between them. In 2014, they both found themselves in East Asia for different reasons, and Mark admitted his feelings for Kelly, beginning a brief long-distance relationship. They took a break in 2015, but after a chance encounter, they reconnected for good two years later. In December 2017, the couple was on a snowy vacation in New York City when Mark led Kelly to Central Park. He asked her to be his forever, and she happily accepted. On July 22, 2018, the guys played pingpong and watched the Open Championship while the ladies enjoyed Chick-fil-A during hair and makeup. Omar King from The Summit Church officiated at Waypoint Church in front of parents Scott and Lisa Mooneyham, Hope Haywood and the wedding party featuring local friends. At the reception, guests celebrated at the Durham Armory with music from the Emerald Empire Band. “We wanted to really get the party going, so we choreographed an entrance to the tune of “The Greatest Show,” complete with confetti cannons, ribbon twirlers, dancers and acrobats,” the couple says. They had their first dance to “You Are The Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne before fading into the wobble whereupon the bride’s father and groom’s mother put on sunglasses and engaged in the fun. The newlyweds plan to reside in Chapel Hill. CHM November 2018 chapelhillmagazine.com

DUNN & TOMASI

W BY KENSEY KATZ PHOTOGRAPHY BY OLIVIA SURIANO NANCYRAYPHOTOGRAPHY.COM

When Luca Tomasi, a Chapel Hill native, asked his classmate, Rachel Dunn, out on a date during a school day at Durham Academy their junior year, they might not have guessed their relationship would blossom over ten years together. After spending their college years apart – Luca at Duke and Rachel at William & Mary – and then their early careers in different cities, they reunited in Philadelphia, where they lived with their puppy, Peyton. The couple was traveling in Seville, Spain, this past winter, when Luca proposed to Rachel on the rooftop of a beautiful old hotel with a great view of the Seville Cathedral. Months later, friends and family from Italy to Montana gathered on May 5, 2018, at St. Thomas More Catholic Church. In attendance were Luca’s parents, Carlo and Cristina Tomasi, Rachel’s parents, Bart and Kathryn Dunn, and even Luca’s uncle, Michele Tomasi, a priest, traveled from Italy to co-officiate the wedding. Rachel’s father made the audience both laugh and cry during his speech about her relationship with Luca at the Carolina Inn reception. Another memorable moment was when the band played “New York, New York” by Frank Sinatra as an ode to Rachel’s late grandfather. “I still smile when I think of our band and the energy they brought to our reception,” she says. “It was his favorite song, and it brought my entire family from New York out to the dance floor.” The couple resides in Chapel Hill with Luca attending law school at Duke and Rachel working as a marketing manager at ViiV Healthcare.
