UP CLOSE & PERSONAL YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MAGAZINE COULD USE MORE OF?

More of you. We’re pretty well connected, and we’ve gotten pretty good at knowing what’s going on around town – launches, fundraisers, political debates, shifts within the university. But we want to hear more of your personal stories, and who can tell them better than you? That’s why we’ve launched our First Person department. On page 30 of this issue, you’ll find Dr. Bruce Cairns’ harrowing tale of going into cardiac arrest while on the treadmill at the UNC Wellness Center at Meadowmont. “While there was no flash of light, nor particular great insight, this episode changed me forever,” he writes. “I’m still in the process of recovering physically and emotionally from the event and expect I will be for the rest of my life.” In May, Berkeley Grimball of Grimball Jewelers reflected with humor on his week in a Buddhist monastery in Thailand: “Most of the 60 guests were young Europeans, very serious, walking around with their ‘I am here to meditate’ face on, offering little eye contact. (Though it happens, don’t go to a monastery to meet people.)” Share your story! Maybe it’s a funny recount of a humbling parenting moment or a remembrance about how you found the cause that’s dear to your heart. Email me! I can’t wait to hear from you – and your neighbors can’t either. CHM

Speaking of stories, every week, I get to know community leaders like Stacey Yusko of Chapel Hill-Carrboro R U TO OA ! T Meals on Wheels and Voice of the Tar S PODC Heels Jones Angell on our podcast.

fter reading Anne-Marie Slaughter’s groundbreaking The Atlantic article, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All,” Betsy Polk and Maggie Ellis Chotas knew they’d found the foreword writer for their developing book, “Power Through Partnership: How Women Lead Better Together.” Two years later, the book is a reality for the co-authors who are also co-partners at The Mulberry Partners, a Chapel Hill/Durham-based leadership coaching and consulting firm. And the foreword by Anne-Marie – the president and CEO of New America, a nonpartisan think tank, and professor emerita of politics and international affairs at Princeton University – perfectly captures its key message about the under-the-radar phenomenon of women’s collaborations that provide the support, flexibility, confidence and accountability to make work really work. Flash-forward to Mother’s Day 2016. Anne-Marie, now the author of “Unfinished Business: Women, Men, Work and Family” and UNC’s commencement speaker, again said yes – this time to meeting Betsy and Maggie at The Carolina Inn for a lively conversation following her address to graduates. “It’s so good to be here in North Carolina!” she told them. “It’s been a long time since I’ve been in Chapel Hill. My father’s family was from Lincolnton, and both my greatgrandfathers graduated from Chapel Hill. My grandmother grew up in Raleigh, then moved with her football coach of a husband to Charlottesville. My grandmother loved North Carolina and always missed her life here. There’s a special kind of warmth in the people of this state that you don’t find in the same way in other places.” Anne-Marie worked with Hillary Clinton for two years at the State Department as director of policy planning and has called the presidential candidate a wonderful boss.

Top: Betsy Polk, Anne-Marie Slaugher and Maggie Ellis Chotas at The Carolina Inn.

“Hillary Clinton is extremely responsive to family,” AnneMarie said. “I never had any doubt that when I had to leave and go home, she’d be OK with it. I continually respected her work ethic and dedication to the task at hand. I knew the job was to figure out how to do the most good we could possibly do every day. We were there to serve a higher purpose. I admire that.” CHM

A NIGHT TO SAVOR PHOTOGRAPHY BY BRIANA BROUGH & SARAH ARNESON

We had a blast at our third annual Grand TASTE Experience at the Durham Armory. Chefs from Crossroads Chapel Hill, Il Palio, Crook’s Corner, LaPlace and many other restaurants offered samples, as did artisan food makers like Chapel Hill Toffee, La Farm Bakery and Matthew’s Chocolates. Plus, there was plenty of beer, wine and spirits, and it was all set to a live soundtrack thanks to the Mint Julep Jazz Band. A portion of the proceeds benefited the Durham branch of the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, providing 25,000 meals to the community. CHM

MARY SCROGGS GOES TO PROM PHOTOGRAPHY BY MARTHA HOELZER

This spring, Mary Scroggs Elementary School hosted an ’80s-themed prom to raise money for the school’s STEAM – science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics – initiative. The back-in-time theme was realized in the event’s decorations, food and participants’ dress. The night was a success as close to 200 teachers, staff, local business sponsors and parents attended and the school raised over $17,000. CHM

FORE! THE KIDS PHOTOGRAPHY BY JESSICA STRINGER

Under a perfect Carolina blue sky, guests at the Larry Fedora Golf Tournament set off for a round of golf at the Chapel Hill Country Club. The event raised about $15,000 for Volunteers For Youth, a Carrboro-based organization focused on delinquency prevention through community service and teen court programs. Most of the funds will benefit the program that provides mentors for Orange County youth and activities such as trips to the zoo and pottery lessons. The winner of the tournament was the team from Coleman, Huntoon & Brown PLLC consisting of David Huntoon, Alan Campbell, Price French and Mark Brown, a past president of the Volunteers for Youth board.

FARM TO FORK DOES FEARRINGTON PHOTOGRAPHY BY ANDREA GRIFFITH CASH

The threat of severe weather moved one of our favorite annual events – the Farm to Fork Picnic – from Breeze Family Farm in Hurdle Mills to Fearrington Village. Good news: The deliciousness was transferable. Other weekend events included a Sustainable Supper and Square Dance at the Haw River Ballroom, featuring Deb Eschmeyer, the executive director of Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Initiative, and a dinner at The Durham Hotel that combined the talents of Andrea Reusing and President Obama’s former personal chef and assistant White House chef Sam Kass. Farm to Fork is the sole fundraiser for beginning farmer training programs at the Center for Environmental Farming Systems and the W.C. Breeze Family Farm Agricultural Extension & Research Center.

OBSESSIONS OUR EDITORS’ MOST RECENT FINDS WILL HAVE YOU HOOKED, TOO

SCULPTING STORIES Linda Ashman weaves magical tales for kids

W

PHOTO BY AMY STERN PHOTOGRAPHY

ritten in harmonious verse, Linda’s fanciful stories explore a diverse array of plots and themes. Her most recent release, “Rock-a-Bye Romp,” reimagines the familiar lullaby by taking baby on an adventure. Linda says she enjoys reading this tale to enthusiastic audiences. “I’ve heard laughter at the wilder parts and ‘Awww’ on the final page when the baby’s snug in bed,” Linda says. Having produced more than 30 children’s books, Linda shared with Assistant Editor Laura Zolman Kirk how she does it. “Book ideas come from all sorts of different places, but the stories themselves seem to begin the same way – as a shapeless lump. The challenge is, always, how to turn that amorphous lump into a story that works as a picture book. Many books – like ‘Henry Wants More!’ and ‘Hey, Coach!’ – were inspired by my son Jackson when he was young. Others – like ‘All We Know’ and ‘Castles, Caves and Honeycombs’ – came out of my interest in animals and the natural world. Sometimes, I want to explore an idea visually – like the contagiousness of moods in ‘Rain!’ or the concept of exclusion in ‘No Dogs Allowed!’ And at least once, I’ve stolen an idea from someone else’s life: ‘Samantha on a Roll’ was inspired by my husband’s disastrous attempt to skateboard down a very steep hill when he was a kid (I gave Samantha’s adventure a much happier ending).”

I SPY CHAPEL HILL Linda and her family moved to town four years ago, and she couldn’t help but be inspired by her new surroundings. The publication process is such that stories with connections to her life here have not yet been published, but be on the lookout for the local highlights to come in “Will’s Winter Nap” (2017) and “When the Storm Comes” (2018), both inspired by Chapel Hill’s unruly weather patterns.

Linda’s books have been included in yearly best book lists by The New York Times and Parenting magazine.


KURTAS FOR A CAUSE One local employs artisans a world away

L “Biscuits for Your Outside Man” features songs from North Carolina artists such as John Dee Holeman, Algia Mae Hinton and Guitar Gabriel.

DROP A BEET A new album showcases the ties between music and food

W

ith tracks titled “Shortnin’ Bread,” “Greasy Greens” and “Cherry Pie,” the lineup for “Biscuits for Your Outside Man” resembles the menu of a hearty Sunday supper. Instead, it’s a compilation of food-themed songs released last month by the Music Maker Relief Foundation. The soulful collection features music spanning three decades from “mostly North Carolina artists and a pinch of South Carolina musicians and a smattering of Georgia musicians,” says founder and executive director Tim Duffy. Proceeds from the album – available on iTunes and Bandcamp and on musicmaker.org – go toward the nonprofit’s aim to support musicians as a way to preserve the musical traditions of the South. Since the nonprofit routinely holds their board meetings at Crook’s Corner, it was a no-brainer that the restaurant’s chef – and a huge music fan himself – Bill Smith was tapped to pen the liner notes. As Bill writes, “The language of the Blues is especially effective in using the metaphors of food and cooking. It’s both honest and funny. It may seem elemental and primitive at first, but to me, it is great poetry.” The album is the musical equivalent of no-frills soul food – hearty and comforting, you’ll want second helpings. “Play this music when you sit down to dinner,” Bill notes. “It’s as satisfying as a T-bone steak.” – Jessica Stringer

oved for their loose styles and lightweight fabrics, Amaya Textiles’ summer-perfect tunics come in a variety of bright, vibrant looks. But the beauty of Chapel Hillian Pam Schaecher’s global clothing company goes beyond the lively designs – it’s also in its do-gooding mission to create work for men and women abroad. Inspired by Pam’s travels to India and work as an educator at international schools in Europe, Amaya Textiles’ products are fashioned together by hand with block printing and embroidery. The company partners with cooperatives in Rajasthan, India to create opportunities for artisans. The quality of their work can be seen – and felt – in the jackets and kurtas. “They are so comfortable,” Pam says, but, in them, “you feel like a princess.” – Laura Zolman Kirk

You can find Pam’s designs locally at Dovecote Style at Fearrington Village or online at amayatextiles.com.

BREATHING NEW LIFE

O

ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2015,

as the sun rose over another beautiful Chapel Hill morning, I was on the treadmill at the UNC Wellness Center at Meadowmont, when out of the blue and with no warning, I suddenly collapsed and died. To be more precise, I suffered a cardiac arrest (also known as “clinical death”), received cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), was brought back with an automated external defibrillator (AED) and taken to UNC Hospitals for an emergency cardiac catheterization and two coronary artery stents. 30

DR. BRUCE CAIRNS ON SECOND CHANCES AND SERVING OTHERS

While there was no flash of light – nor particular great insight – this episode changed me forever. I’m still in the process of recovering physically and emotionally from the event and expect I will be for the rest of my life. As a result, I have had a focused opportunity to deeply reflect on my life and career. For the past 20 years, I have been involved in the care of the critically ill and injured, especially those with severe burn injuries, as a surgeon and critical care physician at the North Carolina Jaycee Burn Center at the UNC Medical Center. Nestled within the UNC Health Care complex, the burn center


F I R S T

P E R S O N

at UNC is one of the largest and busiest burn facilities in the U.S. Supported by the generosity of the people of North Carolina since before it opened in 1981, this facility is also one of the most comprehensive and innovative burn centers in the world. Working at the burn center has been in my blood for decades. I remember buying jelly from the Jaycees in the 1970s in an effort to raise funds to build the center when it was first introduced to the community. A decade later, during one of my first rotations as a surgery intern in the burn center, I was drawn to the impressive multidisciplinary care and service provided there. A few years later, while on active duty in the U.S. Navy in Guam, I took care of people with severe burn injuries following the Korean Air Flight 801 airline crash in 1997 that occurred a mile from naval housing where I lived with my young family. After returning to Chapel Hill in 1999, I completed my training and joined the UNC surgical faculty in 2000. Over the years, I have started a basic science research laboratory in the department of microbiology and immunology, worked on increasing faculty diversity and expanded military programs at UNC, including the new physician assistant program that opened in 2016. For the past eight years, I have had the distinct honor to serve as the medical director of the burn center at UNC. Little of this professional experience prepared me for what I had to face following my cardiac arrest. But one unique and innovative program in the burn center has been enormously helpful. Our aftercare program helps patients integrate into school and society after a burn injury. This program provides a lifetime of spiritual and emotional support for our survivors. The burn center has over 20,000 burn survivors in its database, and many of them have been involved in the aftercare programs for decades – I have learned a lot from all of them. I am not sure what the future holds for me or for all of us. But to be sure, I have learned that living a life in the service of others makes it worthwhile and that no matter our status or situation, it truly is better to give than to receive. CHM

Through his music and wide-ranging collaborations with artists ranging from Twyla Tharp to Allen Ginsberg and Woody Allen to David Bowie, Philip Glass has had an extraordinary and unprecedented impact upon the musical and intellectual life of his time. Glass’s associations, personal and professional, with leading rock, pop and world music artists date back to the 1960s. On January 31, 2017, Glass will celebrate his 80th birthday. Beginning the next night, Carolina Performing Arts will honor this iconic American artist through an international festival of performances across the spectrum of his prolific creative output and diverse artistic collaborations.

Deepening her investigations, portrait of myself as my father celebrates and critiques masculinity—its presence, presentation and representation.

What does North Carolina sound like? In a state that produced Doc Watson, James Taylor and the Avett Brothers there’s hardly a more well-rounded answer than the Steep Canyon Rangers. A bluegrass band at their core, they effortlessly walk the line between festival favorite and sophisticated string orchestra. Their mix of serious chops and good-natured fun earned them the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album and drew comedian/banjoist Steve Martin to them when he needed a backing band. Fifteen years and nine studio albums since forming in Chapel Hill, the sextet returned to their roots at Echo Mountain Recording with producer/dobro player Jerry Douglas for their most recent collection, RADIO.

Philip Glass and Kronos Quartet

For more than 40 years the Kronos Quartet has pursued a singular artistic vision combining fearless exploration with a continual re-imagining of the string quartet experience. Among the most influential composers ever to work in film, Philip Glass has reinvented the relationship between music and the moving image. For Dracula, Glass created an intense and atmospheric score for the Kronos Quartet, bringing new life to Universal Pictures’ 1931 classic by Tod Browning. Here they appear together alongside horror film icon Bela Lugosi in a riveting synthesis of music concert and film.

Jazz pianist/composer Marcus Roberts rose to prominence with the Wynton Marsalis and Jazz at Lincoln Center bands, then with his own trio and as a classical soloist. Perhaps best known for his entirely new approach to jazz trio performance, his critically acclaimed legacy of recorded music reflects his tremendous versatility as an artist, with works for solo piano, duets and trio arrangements of jazz standards as well as original suites of music, large ensemble works and symphony orchestra recordings.

A STARRY NIGHT GET OUT OF TOWN TO WATCH THE NIGHT SKY WITH MOREHEAD PL ANETARIUM BY JESSICA STRINGER | PHOTO BY JOE PEDIT

ARKNESS OVERTOOK

twilight as I drove down the winding road to Jordan Lake. It was pitch-black and desolate when I made the final turn into the Ebenezer Church Recreation Area; I began to wonder whether that night’s sky-watching session put on by Morehead Planetarium and Science Center had been canceled due to the clouds. But then I saw the soft glow of red light

beyond rows of parked cars and knew I was in the right spot. (Just kill your headlights when you get close so you don’t blind everyone.) The real treat at the planetarium’s monthly sessions, usually held at Jordan Lake, is really getting to see the sky. Here on the shore, away from all the lights in town, the amount of unobstructed sky is spectacular. I studied the constellation map with my flashlight as


Want to Go? • See Jupiter, Mars and Saturn on July 9 and the Perseid meteor shower on August 11. If you can’t make it this summer, the sessions continue through the rest of the year. • If the weather is iffy, check the planetarium’s Facebook and Twitter accounts to see whether the session is still on. • Show up anytime during the session. I got there a few minutes after 9 p.m. and saw the moon and Jupiter. I left around 10:15 p.m., but anyone who stayed later saw Mars and Saturn. • Once your eyes adjust to the darkness, find the planetarium’s table. They’ve got educational handouts and red balloons to slip over the end of your flashlight – red light is easier on the eyes. • Save the Instagram shots for another time. You won’t get a good picture, and you’ll ruin everyone’s night vision if you use devices like cell phones and flash cameras. • The temperature might be lower than you think. I wore sneakers, pants and a sweatshirt and was comfortable, unlike a lot of people I saw shivering.

I waited in line to look through a telescope, constantly staring up to find the groups of stars. Small patches of clouds moved across the sky now and then, but constellations like the Big Dipper were completely visible. Once it was my turn to peer through the telescope, the volunteer from Chapel Hill Astronomical and Observational Society

told me to look for the moon’s terminator –

the line between the illuminated part and dark side of the moon – and a few other features. Another telescope had Jupiter in view, so I hopped in that line. To the naked eye, it looked like any old star, a bright blip near the moon. But I saw the hazy stripes of Jupiter and three out of its four moons. Throughout the evening, a planetarium staff member led those interested in sky

stories away from the crowd. As the rest of us sprawled out in the grass for a better vantage point, she stood, telling stories of stars light-years away. The staffer even deftly deflected a question from a kid who asked whether Santa’s home at the North Pole was anywhere near the North Star. (She answered truthfully by saying that the North Star was millions of miles away.) In the age of Snapchat and status updates, it was refreshing to spend a night completely unplugged, looking up at the vast expanse that has been captivating humans since the beginning of time.

Pig Out (or Don’t, Your Choice)

When a restaurant is called The Pig, it’s easy to focus on the pork. But don’t forget these non-barbecue options that are worthy of a trip. Fried Bologna It’s basically what you get when the sandwich from your gradeschool lunch box grows up to be a total hunk. Featuring the thickest cut of housemade bologna you’ve probably seen in your life, this slice is served hot on a big bun with mustard and slaw. Vietnamese Pork Cheek When you don’t want to stray too far from your usual barbecue, this is analogous to it: coleslaw is to the crunchy carrots, green onion and cilantro as pulled pork is to the robustly flavored, fattier cheek. Catfish Nestled up to a mound of slaw and a pile of pickles, the fried catfish feels like a proper dinner. Beautifully mild flakes wait inside a dark, battered crust. Remoulade sauce comes on the side – don’t forget it! Barbecue Tempeh Do not mock the tempeh – it will only make you seem foolish. Could you describe this as smoky, savory, crispy-tender granola bars on a bun? Probably. Could you also describe it as surprisingly tasty? Definitely. Bucket of Pickles Seriously, one of the greatest things about eating at The Pig is the side of house-made pickles you get with everything. For $40, you can take home a literal bucket of them and be happy for, well, as long as it takes you to eat a bucket of pickles. – Virginia Robinson

Size of the space under 700 square feet Some of the most notable people to pull up to the drive-thru Michael Jordan, Dean Smith and some of the UNC basketball players. Julius Peppers would come by a few times a week. The most unusual order… was a bacon, egg and slaw biscuit. On a busy day, we’ll serve… around 3,000 biscuits. The trick to avoiding the line… Park and come inside. One notable morning… They came to film the movie “Bad Grandpa” with Johnny Knoxville. The producers asked me to keep it a secret because they thought I would spill. (I probably would have given it away.) Johnny Knoxville came through the line being pushed in a cart. It tipped over and my boys went out to help. They had people inside wearing hidden cameras and vans outside with hidden cameras. He was really nice afterward. We named the Bad Grandpa biscuit after the movie.

hen Scott Stephenson started the Yogurt Pump – or YOPO, as it’s commonly known – in Chapel Hill in 1982, frozen yogurt was not the giant it is today. It was a year after TCBY opened its first shop in Little Rock, Arkansas. “We think it’s the oldest frozen yogurt shop in North Carolina,” says Elise Stephenson, Scott’s daughter and managing partner who has worked in the shop on and off since high school. “He completely hit the mark on the head and beat the market by like 20 years.” Of course, there were trying times and big decisions to be made when the second surge of yogurt popularity hit in the 2000s with the rise of self-service shops like Pinkberry. Ultimately YOPO decided to stick to their roots as a 1980s fro-yo shop. Cleanliness is easier to maintain when employees, called “Yo Pros,” serve the yogurt, Elise says. “It’s more work for us, but we love having almost an old soda shop kind of feel.” Though they’ve been in

business for 34 years, they keep things fresh by developing their own flavors in-shop. “We are very much something people look to as a standard,” Elise says – so much so that YOPO’s flavors are often mimicked by others in the market. But there’s no bad blood, Elise says, since YOPO is too small to trademark its specific flavors like strawberry lemonade and toasted marshmallow. “It’s almost like getting a high-five that you’re doing something right.” Above all the goodness that comes with owning a frozen yogurt shop, Elise finds fulfillment beyond cones of Irish mint and red velvet cake. “It’s something larger than just the product. It starts with something that everyone can love” – delicious frozen yogurt – “then it becomes something bigger than that,” she says. “It’s the community that we’ve created here that the town of Chapel Hill – the students and the locals – continue to propagate. It wouldn’t be the same somewhere else.” – Laura Zolman Kirk „

Ouro Vinho Verde, produced in the Minho region of Portugal, is what many would consider the quintessential summer quaffer. The wine, almost clear in color, has a clean fresh aroma of lemon, lime zest and hints of verbena and limestone – these come through on the palate finish with crisp palate-cleansing acidity and the telltale Vinho Verde spritz on the finish. With the added bonus of low alcohol, you can have a guiltfree second (or third glass) while still maintaining the summer patio party decorum! – Elizabeth Cooper, Southern Season

Sun Hands Belgian Summer Golden [from Haw River Farmhouse Ales] is a wonderfully aromatic Belgian golden strong with a bit more hop bite than usual. They brew this one with over a hundred pounds of locally collected wildflower honey from the North Carolina mountains and a blend of punchy American and Southern Hemisphere hops. It’s a clean, bright golden strong ale that finishes medium dry and offers up just the right amount of sticky honey and citrusy hops to celebrate the warm summer months! – JD Schlick, Beer Study

The bar is most energetic on… Wednesday and Friday nights. On Wednesday nights, we offer $5 glasses of wine and, being the middle of the week, people love getting out and enjoying good friends, good drinks and good food!

The most unusual drink I’ve been asked to make… The funniest was a bourbon and Mountain Dew. We don’t have Mountain Dew, and the guy couldn’t believe it! I got a kick out of that.

Which childhood books have stuck with you the most? I was an avid reader as a child, frequently taking my flashlight to bed to read beneath the covers. I entertained myself often in a backyard hammock with North Carolina ghost stories by Nancy and Bruce Roberts. I read these over and over again. Like many girls my age, [I wanted to be Nancy Drew] when I grew up. What’s the one book right now you’d like to recommend to everyone? Lee Smith’s “Dimestore: A Writer’s Life.” I’ve long been a fan of hers, and this book captures so much of her resiliency, strength and humor. She lives in Hillsborough and is a frequent visitor to Purple Crow.

green thumb Gardening Advice for Our Unique Climate

A

lthough you shouldn’t be planting this time of year – “the brutal heat and humidity make [the summer] our most stressful season for gardens,” says co-owner Ashley Mattison, Fifth Season Gardening Co. remains a must no matter the season (hello, home brewing equipment!). Planning ahead for cooler weather, Ashley offers some tips for gardeners of all levels. For the New-to-the-Area Gardener “A lot of customers who have moved here from other parts of the country wonder what to plant in the red stuff where soil should be! We recommend as many native plants as possible because they are adapted for our soil conditions and hot, humid climate. That would include perennials such as yarrow, echinacea, Shasta daisies and penstemons; shrubs like oakleaf hydrangea; and trees such as dogwoods and redbuds.” The Experienced Gardener’s Worth-It Challenge “Carnivorous plants are beautiful, otherworldly and can help with insect control, but they definitely aren’t for the beginner as they take very specific conditions to thrive. And a lot of edibles from blueberry bushes to rosemary and other herbs provide multiseason visual interest and make great additions to your table!” – Laura Zolman Kirk „

athleen Jasinskas and Charlie Hyland moved to Chapel Hill from New York City in the spring of 2014 and started looking for a venue for their October 2015 wedding before they touched down in Tar Heel country. They knew they wanted to get married at University Presbyterian Church, where they both sing in the choir, and wanted a walkable venue for the reception. After inquiring at several places along Franklin Street, the couple landed on Top of the Hill for their allinclusive package (from linens and tables to catering and more) and the above-and-beyond staff – specifically Danielle Olcott, director of events for the Great Room. Kathleen shared her experience over lunch at Mediterranean Deli. Why did you choose Top of the Hill? They just do everything for you. Cost-wise, it wasn’t that much more than using venues where you have to do everything yourself. So it seemed like, for the money, it would just be better to have someone else take care of everything. They did stuff for us that we didn’t even expect them to do. They helped us find a bartender for our rehearsal dinner, which wasn’t at Top of the Hill. Danielle put our centerpieces together herself. She was just a rock star. And all of that was included in their fee. What was your favorite feature of the venue? I just thought the convertible layout of the space was really cool. That big room, they can turn it into anything you want. We set it up for a kind of cocktail hour with bar stools,

but they can set it up for long family-style dinners or a traditional seated dinner. And then they can rotate everything. When the kids started getting antsy at the end of the night, Danielle turned our buffet room into a movie room for the kids and put “Frozen” on. She didn’t ask – she just said, “Hey, there’s a movie on for the kids if you want to let the parents know.” It was awesome. What makes Top of the Hill rave-worthy? For us, the big thing was that we always thought we were Danielle’s first priority, even when our wedding was more than a year away. She was so on top of it, so proactive and never let a minute go by without sending an email. She was so good at everything. We were aware that she was planning like 50 other weddings at the same time as ours, but she never treated us like we were anything other than her very first concern, which was incredible. – Laura Zolman Kirk „

Pick a color palette “A great way to pull together a summer celebration without locking into a specific ‘theme’ is by layering hues together for an ombre effect. For example, using beautiful shades of blue for a beach party can allow you to bring in pale turquoise shades to rich cobalt blue tones for a stunning backdrop.” Set the mood with lighting “Before your guests arrive, scatter interesting vessels of candlelight, and these votives will take on a magical feel as the evening progresses. I often use different size glass jars and place them throughout the yard for that ‘firefly effect’ as the sun sets.” Spread out the hosting duties “Progressive parties are a fun way to get friends and neighbors excited

Best Place to Satisfy My Sweet Tooth I am torn between Sugarland and Insomnia Cookies – happily they are across from each other. Best Place to Go for a Haircut I enjoy catching town gossip and a good, reasonable haircut at Chapel Hill Barber Shop. Best Greenway I love starting in the [Gene] Strowd Rose Garden and walking the Bolin Creek Trail, with a stop at Caffe Driade for the perfect reward. Best Place to Take Out-of-Town Guests While Whitehall seems to be the personal favorite of thousands escorting guests each year, my favorite for our guests is a stroll down Franklin Street across the old campus and into the arboretum. That also allows for some intriguing and unique shopping at Julian’s, Ackland Museum Store and so many other locally owned shops. Best Place to Watch a Movie I confess I am madly in love with Silverspot [Cinema] at University Place – just a great experience in what has become an elegant and delightful place to shop. And of course, there is Kidzu for great fun with our grandsons after a movie. Best Place to Relax Hands down, the bar at Lantern for a relaxed, chic setting with great drinks and food. No matter what friends we are with, the staff remembers everyone’s favorite drink and offers it as a first option.

This special yoga class continues to be popular each week.

Coming from a mother with two children under 3 years of age, in the span of one week, you can attend a children’s art class, various playgroups, an outdoor concert with food trucks, meet neighbors, splash around in the pool, hike and mountain bike on the best trails in the area and attend a myriad of fitness classes. – Linda Villafana Wert, resident for six years The beautiful greenways, trails and parks make living here an escape from the pains of reality. We’ve met some incredible people and know that will continue as more folks move in. All of that coupled with the future restaurants, bars and stores coming to Briar Chapel make it the perfect place to live in Chapel Hill. – Eddie Sidenstricker, resident for two years Briar Chapel is a conglomerate of loving, eclectic neighbors from all over the country. I love the open space and miles and miles of trails for biking and hiking, the wide range of neighborhood activities and our own little Caribbean getaway (i.e., the Briar Chapel pools).  – Alison Moore, resident for three years My husband, Mark, and I love the sense of community that is easily fostered by the many parks and gathering spaces throughout Briar Chapel as well as the many opportunities to get together with neighbors and friends alike. … The weekends spent there feel like we’re on vacation. – Katie Chastain, resident for one year „

s a first-time dog owner and a new transplant to Chapel Hill, I thought I could save a few bucks and drive my pup, Winston, outside Chapel Hill for the vet. Not only did I not save any money, but the pain of driving so far and the employees’ lackluster attitude toward my sweet black lab always left me with a bad taste in my mouth. So, a year into my dog-mom role, I decided to shop around. Winston’s first appointment at VCA Timberlyne was eye-opening. He’s a skittish, 70-pound baby who has never enjoyed a trip to the vet. But, when Dr. Latoya Schultz and vet tech Shakira Alston walked into the

room and immediately got on the floor to love on him – not just for a second, but for almost 15 minutes – my little dude opened right up. He played dead (his most challenging trick) for them, and he let Shakira clean his ears, no fight to be had. It wasn’t just their warm greetings that made me a cheerleader for VCA Timberlyne, but it was their overall considerate nature, inviting me to become a part of the decisionmaking process for Winston’s treatment plan. For the first time, I could look down at a sheet of paper letting me know what treatments they would like to pursue for my pup – before the money was owed. I don’t know if I ended up saving any money (turns out, when given the choice, it’s hard to skimp on your fur baby’s health), but the feeling of agency over the process makes all the difference. And the convenience of a quarter-mile drive and a panicfree dog isn’t bad either.

Fill-in-theBlank Test Some thoughts from the woman voted top educator

E

llen Manning grew up across the globe, spending time living in Latin America and Europe. The world she loved the most was the natural one, and through various outdoor adventure and learning companies she realized her innate passion for teaching. “I’ve been a teacher all of my life,” she explains, “but as an environmental educator and park ranger for some of the time.” She ultimately went back to school to earn an elementary education degree, moved to North Carolina and has taught school locally for 12 years. Ellen currently teaches first grade at Carrboro Elementary. She lives with her husband, Mark Barroso, and daughter, Natalie Barroso, in northern Pittsboro. Here, Ellen fills in a few blanks.

The biggest misconception about teaching is that ‌ You can’t let the child within your own self out when you are teaching. I share my passion for dancing with my kids; I play my guitar and harmonica and recorder all the time, and we get our wiggles out with interactive music and dance.

Bester Teach

A piece of wise advice I’ve received from one of my young students is ‌ To let the mystery be. My favorite day of the school year is ‌ Valentine’s Day. We have a weeklong post office that the kids work in to mail cards to each other. On Valentine’s Day, they open all their cards. It’s so much fun. The student I’ve kept in touch with longest ‌ Is from Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools, now 19 years old and at Emory University in Georgia studying writing and literature. When I’m not teaching, I’m ‌ Walking my dog in the woods, out on Jordan Lake with my husband on our boat, or going to music festivals and dancing to live music with friends.

A moment in my career that I’ll never forget is ‌ When I had a Karen refugee student in second grade. He had just moved to this country from Burma and spoke no English. He did not read or write in his own language. He had lived in a refugee camp his entire life. At the end of the year, with hard work and perseverance on his part, I moved him through nine reading levels to proficiency by the time he went to third grade. I have never been so proud of a student. – Jessie Ammons CHM

A WEST COAST BACKGROUND PROMPTED THE BOYERS TO MAKE THE MOST OF A COMPACT LOT

R

BY JESSIE AMMONS PHOTOGRAPHY BY BRIANA BROUGH

ROB AND KIMBER BOYER HAVE lived in some pretty cool places. Both California natives, they met in college in Boulder, Colorado and were living in the Pacific Northwest when they decided to relocate to North Carolina. The area’s familyfriendly nature appealed to them, and two decades later, “we’re practically Tar Heels,” Kimber says. While their wanderlust days are behind them, 94

the Boyers couldn’t shake a certain fundamental preference: “We’re urban people,” Kimber says, which is why they came to Chapel Hill. “It felt a little less staid to us, a little more eclectic and diverse.” Now they’re on a lot just off of East Franklin Street, where life is walkable and has all the urban living conveniences they love. And they’ve built their dream house – the coolest place they’ve lived yet. PLOT TWIST Kimber says their California roots instilled in them a creative approach to real estate. Land is precious and limited there, so people make their

The modern take on a courtyard was mostly Kimber’s idea, and then she worked with friend and landscape architect Jonathan Parsons. “I knew I wanted a courtyard, and we wanted it kind of hidden from the street,” Kimber says.

“Right now, I’m just loving the white. White countertops, white everything,” Kimber says. As it turns out, Benjamin Moore’s color of the year for 2016 is Simply White, so she is right on trend.

plot count. Downtown Chapel Hill invokes that same mentality: “You have to think outside the box to get what you want,” she says. Luckily, Kimber spent years as an interior designer and is now a real estate agent. Rob is a chiropractor with a knack for do-it-yourself projects. They can’t help but think outside the box. They bought an old home that had been sitting empty for years and considered restoring it, but there wasn’t much to work with; instead, they tore it down and rebuilt from the ground up. As a design professional, Kimber understands the importance of knowing your limits. “I had it all designed in my head, but you need somebody to help put it to paper,” she says. The Boyers worked with architect Coby Linton in Durham to design a “modern farmhouse” with soaring ceilings – 10 feet in the rooms and much higher in the open main areas – pristine white walls and ample wideset batten board. Hardwood floors are finished in a soft brown with gray undertones to complement the walls’ brightness. Throughout the house, pops of color come from intentionally chosen accent pieces. “I gravitate toward ocean colors, teals and blues,” Kimber says. „

Initially, the modern farmhouse was to have an entirely open main floor layout with a kitchen, dining area, breakfast nook and living room all within one massive space. “The original concept really had no walls,” Kimber says. Ultimately, the Boyers decided to add one partial wall to create a dining room of sorts, albeit one that’s still definitively modern and open. WITH MEANING The thing about open home concepts is that they can feel stark to a fault. The Boyers avoid impersonality by integrating Kimber’s whimsical style. “My decorating is filled with things that have meaning to me,” she says. “It’s fun to be surrounded by that.” In the family office nook, a shelf of vintage PEZ dispensers is on display, leftover from the childhoods of sons Cole, 25; Jackson, 21; and Skyler, 16 (who just finished his freshman year at East Chapel Hill High School). A front workspace – the entire family is artistic and

A word to the wise about having such an open space and lofted ceilings: “It does make your house noisier,” Kimber says. They remedied that by adding sliding barn doors to each wing as well as doors to each bedroom and the playroom.

Minimize your decorating, and then just display the things that you really love. They’ll stand out.” NO HOLDING BACK From start to finish, the Boyers spent almost a year and a half planning, building and decorating their home.

Use your kids’ art. Even in a more formal house, use it in the family room.“

ARTISTIC BENT A creative eye runs in the Boyer clan. “I’m always interested in and really curious about aesthetics,” Kimber says. “I’m very visual, and our kids are visual, too.” In fact, much of the home’s art was created by a Boyer family member. There’s a colossal neutral print in the dining room (above) completed in one night by Jackson as a down-to-the-wire Christmas gift. He also painted a rendering of himself with his two brothers walking down the beach, a piece that now anchors the staircase wall (left). Cole, the oldest son at 25, recently launched his own high-end video company. Vantage is based in California but works with clients nationally, helping integrate video technology into marketing strategies. “We’re all into it,” Kimber says of the artistic endeavors, with a humble wave of her hand. “We dabble.”

contractor; he built all of the doors himself and laid all the trim work. Their dynamic is complementary: Kimber dreams and designs, and Rob makes it happen. “He is definitely the executer,” Kimber says. “He’s a doer. We work together, and it’s good.” As they wrap up their first year of modern farmhouse living, the Boyers say the design-build was well worth the effort. “It’s not easy,” Kimber says. “[Construction] is not for the faint of heart. You’ve got to be into it. You’ve got to be geared up for it. You may be living a mess, but the end result will bring calm to your life, I think. It has for us.” It’s admittedly a dream home, but the Boyers aren’t making any promise to settle down. “We have redone probably five houses, but never one from the

KIMBER’S DECORATING TIPS • “Only have in your house what you really love. People keep things in their houses that someone gave them or they got a good deal on it, but they don’t really love it. Know how to pare it down, and everything stands out more.” • “Your tastes can change, and that doesn’t mean getting rid of the old things. It means working them together and adding new touches.” For example, the Boyers’ dining room furniture was purchased years ago, and Kimber continues to refinish and repaint it to her liking. She bought two affordable modern white chairs to sit at each end of the dining room table, which elevates all of the furniture to the modern farmhouse style. • “Don’t buy things that you’ll get tired of.” • “Wallpaper a room. But just do one room like a dining room or a powder room. [Pick] bold, graphic wallpaper on the fun side.” • “Always paint your ceilings. Everything will really pop: the light fixture, crown molding if you have it. Sometimes you can go a single shade lighter, otherwise do the same color as your walls.” • “Use your kids’ art. Even in a more formal house, use it in the family room.”

• “Take traditional things and mix them up. Lay your tile in a herringbone pattern; lay your subway tile vertical instead of brick-style.” • “Know when to get help. If you invest just a little bit of money, you can turn the notch up.” • “Paint your doors an accent color. Don’t just do white. Try a fun color and keep it cohesive throughout the house.” • “Go on the Internet. It makes [decorating] so easy now! If you want a certain style to your house, start collecting and make yourself an idea book.” • “Be selective in your DIY projects. Don’t do tile yourself; it has got to be [laid] spot-on. Don’t do your own stonework. Do do your own demo. Realize your strengths and work with them.”

Growing up at Akai Hana, the restaurant her dad managed, Kay Huneycutt only ate tuna rolls. She’s come a long way since her picky eating days as a kid and waiting tables as a teenager. Today, her family owns the Carrboro location and another outpost in Morehead City, and she can’t pick a favorite dish on the menu. (With items ranging from soft-shell crab and sea urchin to hamachi kama and tempura soba, her indecision is understandable.) As front-of-house manager, she shows regulars – like original owner Lee Smith, who opened the restaurant in 1997 – to their tables and steers beginners like me to something they’ll enjoy. Unlike Kay, I never grew out of my trepidation of sushi. She pointed me to the Lobster Lover, a lobster-crab mix with tempura crunchies; the flavors emboldened me to try a second dish, the Monkfish Liver Salad, served as a pâté. The presentation was artful, and the crunch and chill of the cucumber balanced the soft pâté. Joining the league of readers who voted for the eatery in our Best of Chapel Hill poll, I could now appreciate the attention to detail of the spot deemed a Best Sushi winner. Lobster Lover, $14.95; Monkfish Liver Salad, $8.95 – Jessica Stringer CHM

The Healthy Season Paleo, Whole 30, Eat to Live, low carb, gluten free. If you haven’t heard of these diet trends by now, you must living under a rock, and I envy you. So many of my family members, not to mention friends, are committed to one or another of these regimes, and cooking something that pleases them all is a major challenge. Their goal, of course, isn’t to annoy. They are making an effort to eat as healthily as possible and shed some body fat while they’re at it. Whether you want to take pressure off creaky joints, address inflammation, unplug arteries, increase energy or just look better in a bikini, each of these diets encourages minimizing bad food and maximizing good food. Therein lies the problem: Except for the usual subjects – sugar and white flour – they don’t agree on what’s bad.

What they all have in common is a high consumption of fresh vegetables, which, luckily, is the very best part of summer eating. One of my favorite summer dishes is a vegetable tian, basically a gratin or casserole without the addition of fattening cream and breadcrumbs. This recipe for a classic Provencal dish includes a small sprinkling of cheese on top, but doesn’t suffer without it if dairy is off limits. The other recipe is a recent discovery, a savory blackberry sauce/condiment and a very different way to enjoy blackberries. It’s delicious along with meat, especially pork. Personally, I love it on crackers and a sharp cheese or just by itself on buttered toast. But then, I, unlike most everyone I know, am not on a diet.

Summer Vegetable Tart

Saute onions in 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until softened, but not browned. Add a sprinkle of salt along with the garlic, and cook another minute or two. Spread the onion/garlic mixture in the bottom of a baking dish, about 9 by 13 inches. Slice the zucchini, potatoes or eggplant, and tomatoes into circles of equal thickness, about ¼ inch. Arrange the vegetables in rows, alternating zucchini, tomatoes and potatoes or eggplant, slanting them like dominos. Sprinkle the vegetables generously with more salt, pepper and fresh thyme. Drizzle with olive oil. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in the oven at 375 F for 30 minutes. Uncover and continue baking for another 30 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Sprinkle the cheese over top during the last 10 minutes of baking. Let the dish sit for a while, up to several hours before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature.

2 large yellow onions, halved and thinly sliced Olive oil Salt and freshly ground black pepper 2-3 large garlic cloves, minced 2-3 medium zucchini (or 1 zucchini and 1 yellow squash) Small Yukon gold potatoes or Japanese eggplant, equivalent in diameter to zucchini 5-7 tomatoes, equivalent in diameter to zucchini 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh thyme or 1 tsp. dried thyme ½ cup, more or less, grated Gruyere or Parmesan cheese

Blackberry-Sage Sauce 2 Tbsp. minced shallot or sweet onion 1 Tbsp. butter 2-3 cups blackberries 3-4 Tbsp. honey 1 Tbsp. minced fresh sage leaves 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar 2 Tbsp. ketchup 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce Pinch of salt ¼ tsp. black pepper In a medium-sized saucepan, saute the shallots or onions in the butter until they soften. Add all the remaining ingredients, leaving out a dozen or so blackberries. Simmer the sauce for 8 to 10 minutes until syrupy, stirring and mashing berries every few minutes. Remove from heat and cool a few minutes. Puree roughly in a blender (just a few seconds). Add the uncooked berries and serve at room temperature with grilled pork, ham or roast chicken.

CAR POOL CRUSH

“I

BY L AURA ZOLMAN KIRK

“It all started when I was in sixth grade,” Rob Koraly says. During the daily car pool, he would sneak a peek at a high school girl in the backseat who sometimes joined their clan. “I remember she had a free spirit, amber hair, freckles, a beautiful smile, deep brown eyes and wore these long dresses,” Rob says. “But she was way out of my reach.” Years passed, and the girl, Meredith Herndon, moved away. Rob went on to college at UNC. Then one day, their paths crossed again. “Almost 20 years after we rode home from school together, we found ourselves dating,” Rob says. And after a couple more years, he popped the question. Although Meredith had been expecting this, she was still surprised when, after taking her on an island walk, Rob got down on one knee and friends came out of hiding as fireworks were shot off. Rob is the son of Robert and Naida Koraly of Cape Carteret, and Meredith is the daughter of Pam and Wayne Herndon of Pittsboro. They are planning a September wedding in Beaufort and reside in Cedar Point. CHM

WANDERLUST AND LOVE

U

BY L AURA ZOLMAN KIRK PHOTOGRAPHY BY BRET T FOX PHOTOGRAPHY, BRET TFOXPHOTOGRAPHY.COM

UNC grad Helen Mitchell first met Antonio Nester at Cocoa

Cinnamon in downtown Durham on a Sunday afternoon in August 2013. “We sat outside on the picnic tables and talked for at least three hours before we realized we had both gotten sunburned,” Helen says. The two started dating later that fall, but with Antonio’s spring deployment to Kuwait, the couple spent nine months dating long distance. Shortly after Antonio’s return, he visited Helen’s parents to ask for their blessing. Her parents said yes, and Helen’s mother even presented Antonio with her mother’s 70-year-old ring. After a dinner in WinstonSalem, Antonio invited Helen to go on a romantic walk through town before asking her to marry him.

The couple was married at University United Methodist Church, and in tribute to the couple’s love of travel, guests waved international flags as they left. At the reception at the Carolina Club, everyone found his or her table by pulling a name card from a vintage suitcase. The space was decorated with globes and maps, and each table had a photo of the couple on vacation in a different locale. Appropriately, the newlyweds checked off a few more places from their list with a honeymoon to India, Maldives and UAE. Antonio, an Army officer at Fort Bragg, and Helen, a nurse practitioner at UNC Hospitals, live in Chapel Hill. CHM

LA DOLCE VITA

L

BY NIKKI MURDOCH PHOTOGRAPHY BY ROCHELLE CHEEVER, ROCHELLECHEEVER.COM

La Residence has always been a big part of Chapel Hill native Elliott Neal’s life; his parents, Moreton and Bill Neal, opened the

restaurant together in 1976. It took on an even greater significance when he met the love of his life – then UNC student CC Glenn – while managing the eatery in 2006. On Christmas morning of 2014, Elliott surprised CC’s entire family when he showed up on their doorstep in Charleston, S.C. CC’s mom snuck him inside, announced to the rest of the family that there was a surprise and covered CC’s eyes with her hands. When she finally allowed CC to look, there was Elliott on one knee with a ring in his hand, complete with a candy cane in his left breast pocket. CC was so amazed that she almost forgot to say, “Yes!” The pair enjoys exploring the world together, and their love of food, travel, wine and culture influenced them to get married on the Amalfi Coast. Their dream became reality on Sept. 9, 2015, when they became husband and wife by the Tyrrhenian Sea. It was a dreary, overcast day, but just as they were exchanging vows,

the blanket of clouds in the sky finally broke and the sun began to stream through. “There were audible ‘ooohhhs’ and ‘ahhhhs’ from our guests,” says CC. “It was as if the heavens were looking down on us and blessing our marriage from up above. Absolutely breathtaking.” CC and Elliott reside in Chapel Hill and plan to celebrate their first anniversary with a trip to Italy. CHM
