If you were thinking of selling or buying a home at Smith Mountain Lake, NOW IS THE TIME! Properties that are priced well and well positioned in the market ARE selling. Our marketing is strong and things have definitely turned in the right direction for sellers who are serious about selling. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a good time for buyers but inventory in most all price ranges is going down. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss the boat, visit my website or call me today and see why millions are sold on Jane At The Lake! - Jane Sullivan Horne

September/October 2013

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your top spot at the lake to grab lunch? Shop for a gift? Listen to live music? For 12 years, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve asked readers to share their favorites in these categories and dozens more for our annual Best of Smith Mountain Lake Awards.

This year, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re teaming up with our sister publication, Laker Weekly, to add new categories, boost promotion and increase coverage for the awards. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also starting earlier and extending the voting period, allowing readers to cast ballots Sept. 3 through Nov. 11. All voting is online at smithmountainlake. com/best. Award winners will be revealed in our January/February 2014 issue. See Page 34 for more details.

One new category weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve added is Best Local Event. With so many great lake-area festivals and happenings, choosing your favorite may not be easy. Fall is a particularly busy time at SML, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve put together an expanded roundup of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular annual events, in addition to our regular calendar for September and October (Page 110). My family is particularly excited about attending Oktoberfest, a new event that includes a 5K trail race and German-themed festival.

France

Bora Bora Krisha and Derek Klinedinst of Blacksburg and Moneta honeymooned in December at the St. Regis Bora Bora in French Polynesia where they stayed in an over-the-water bungalow that allowed them access to jump straight into the Pacific Ocean. Krisha said the resort is where the movie “Couple’s Retreat” was filmed. Pictured in the background is Mt. Otemanu, one of two peaks on the island that are remnants of an extinct volcano.

Kelly Joyce and daughter Ella of High Point, N.C. (daughter and granddaughter of Brenda and Donnie Payne of Moneta) visited friends in Paris in May where they posed for this photo with the Laker in front of the Eiffel Tower.

Caribbean

Germany

Portugal

In May, newlyweds Creig and Erika Rogers of Goodview took time while on their honeymoon in Sint Maarten, part of the Netherlands, to pose with the Laker in front of Maho Bay. “We spent our time enjoying massages, sunning on the white sand beaches, fine dining, shopping and sipping tropical beverages,” Creig said. “We never leave home without the Laker, so we had to include it in one of our honeymoon photos on the island!”

Bill and Anna Telford of Moneta celebrated Anna’s birthday and their 25th wedding anniversary with a trip in June to the Czech Republic, Austria and Germany. The couple had this photo taken atop the Zugspitz, Germany’s highest mountain at 9,718 feet. The mountain lies south of the town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and the border between Germany and Austria runs over its western summit.

Mary and Stephen Campbell of Moneta traveled in April to Spain and Portugal, visiting Madrid, Toledo, Segovia, Avila, Salamanca, Fatima, Lisbon and Sintra. Stephen said hightlights included a day spent with friend Pedro Ruiz visiting his home city of Toledo and learning about the culture of the region. In this photo, the Campbells display their Laker with the harbor of Lisbon in the background.

Antarctica

Costa Rica

Philip Sheridan of Moneta (left) visited his seventh continent in February when he and son Philip Lee Sheridan of Solana Beach, Calif., traveled to Antarctica, spending three weeks sailing on the expedition ship Corinthian II. Included was a stop at Port Lockroy, a British research station, where the Sheridans posed for this photo with the Laker (and penguins). Other highlights included a visit to Palmer Station, the only U.S. research station in Antarctica, and Deception Island, the caldera of an active volcano, where the junior Sheridan participated in a polar plunge.

In June, Phil and Janice Reed of Moneta celebrated 50 years of marriage with a trip to Costa Rica, which included time spent at the base of the Arenal volcano (in background) where they hiked the Arenal hanging bridges and soaked in the Baldi Hot Springs.

Canada

Greece

Italy

Warren and Janet Robertson of Union Hall and Martha and Buddy Brooks of Rocky Mount took the Laker to the summit of White Pass (elevation 2,864 feet) in May. Passing through the Boundary Ranges of the Coast Mountains on the border of Alaska and British Columbia, Canada, the area was one of two main passes used by prospectors during the Klondike Gold Rush in the late 1800s.

Ron and Sharen Cordell of Huddleston visited Italy, Turkey and Greece to celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary in June. They posed for this photo in front of the Parthenon on the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. “It was an amazing trip to so many places from the Bible and ancient history,” Ron said.

In May, Dawn and Keith Lambert of Goodview and Phil and Cheryl Ege of Moneta traveled to Italy, Austria and Germany. This photo was taken at Lake Como in Lombardy, Italy, a retreat area where a number of stars – Madonna, George Clooney and Sylvester Stallone among them – have or have had homes.

One exceptional feature at the Foster home that is not easily seen but certainly enhances the livability is smart-home technology. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so glad we had Control4 systems installed for the whole house,â&#x20AC;? said Foster, describing a solution that integrates multiple systems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can do just about anything from your phone, iPad or monitors to control almost all the elements of the house, such as lighting, temperature, music, electronics, blinds, RXWGRRUJDVV\VWHPWRUFKHVDQGĂ&#x20AC;UHSLWÂľ Bryant said the home includes everything every member of the family needs to enjoy the lake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Open space, technology, views in almost every URRPSDWLRVDPD]LQJODQGVFDSLQJSRUFKHVĂ&#x20AC;UHSLW elaborate propane torches, lots of room to enjoy good times with family and friends,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not to love?â&#x20AC;?

Foster noted ice makers, laundry chutes, double kitchens and whole-house music.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The outdoor lighting is just amazing at night,â&#x20AC;? Bryant said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all controlled by your smartphone.â&#x20AC;?

Page Lewis and her 12 children have created a charming, wildlife-friendly garden worthy of the top prize in our annual landscape competition.

P

age Lewisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; three-acre garden is both beautiful and remarkable for the nurturing it provides not only for her large family, but also for wildlife. The winner of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lovely Laker Landscape competition, Lewis is a single mother of 12 adopted children, several with special needs. Lewis, who has fostered 29 children over the years, said her kids (seven of them currently live at home) are deeply involved in upkeep of the garden and take enormous pride and pleasure in it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As I adopted more children, I found that if I kept them busy in the garden, they tended to stay out of trouble â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and they slept well at night. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d complain, but they loved it,â&#x20AC;? said Lewis, who hastened to add that working in the garden for her children is not unlike working on the family farm for others. The garden includes four wildlife habitat ponds built by the family. They are linked by meandering streams that wend through the various garden areas. %RJ SODQWV VXFK DV Ă DJ LULV KRVWD DQG ZDWHU PLQW rim the pools, softening the margins and helping to integrate them into the landscape. Paths follow the stream, occasionally crossing the waterways over small, arched wooden bridges. Forks in the paths lead to hidden corners and alcoves of varying sizes, providing sheltered, private places to retreat to think thoughts, talk to a friend or read. There also is a beach

dotted with shells brought back from diving trips in Florida and Hawaii, and a sandbox for the children made of sliced logs stood on end. A variety of wildlife also enjoys the garden, which is totally free from pesticides and other toxins. The ponds DQG Ă RZHU EHGV WKH IDPLO\ EXLOW themselves are home to local fauna such DVELUGVEXWWHUĂ LHVFKLSPXQNVVTXLUUHOV deer, rabbits, and non-poisonous snakes, as well as a burgeoning population of redeared slider turtles the Lewises got at the local animal rescue center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot being hatched in our ponds now, so we must be doing it right,â&#x20AC;? said Lewis, referring to the amphibian habitat. Every spring, the children look to see if their snake, Aphrodite, and the turtles Sam, Dirty Tom and 6TXLUWKDYHVXUYLYHG â&#x20AC;&#x153;The turtles may all look the same to most people,â&#x20AC;? said Lewis, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but the kids notice little identifying features and call tell them apart.â&#x20AC;? The family members also created a habitat for wounded box turtles. After the turtles healed, they took the fence down, but the reptiles stayed. Careful observers also will notice tiny fairy and elf homesteads dotted about the garden. 42 6HSWHPEHUÂ&#x2021;2FWREHU 2013 | SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKER

From top, irises and forgetme-nots add color to a pond margin; hidden fairy gardens enchant children of all ages; fairy furniture created out of twigs and twine by Lewis and daughter Emily decorate an airy abode.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;My dad gave me an illustrated book about gnomes when I was 8 years old, and I read it cover to cover,â&#x20AC;? Lewis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then, a few years ago, I saw a magazine article about fairy and elf gardens. I love the idea of little people in the garden, so one day while the children were at school, I tucked a fairy garden under a shrub. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say anything; I just waited for them to discover it.â&#x20AC;? The children were enchanted, and for years, the younger ones believed fairies really lived there. Every now and then Lewis will add a new fairy home, or move an older one to a new place, keeping the children alert to new discoveries. One winter, when everyone was holed up indoors, Lewis and daughter Emily worked together to make fairy furniture out of twigs, sticks and twine. The following spring they furnished a fairy house. The story of this remarkable garden began 16 years ago when Lewis purchased land in Bedford County and built a house. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The land was part of an old farm that had been sectioned up and sold off,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had an open Ă&#x20AC;HOGIXOORIURFNVDQGURRWVDQGQRVKDGHÂľ She immediately began planting, ultimately creating a child-friendly garden with large trees for

LEFT A stream that meanders throughout the garden provides a favorite spot for the Lewis children to float toy boats; the whole family enjoys exploring the paths that follow the stream and cross over on small arched bridges.

TURTLES AND THEIR TERRITORIES Red-eared slider turtles (like the one pictured below) should not be collected from the wild. They spend their lives in a one-mile radius from where they were hatched, and if you remove any from their territory, they will spend the rest of their lives trying to get back to where they belong. The risk of them getting run over by vehicles is high. The turtles sold in pet shops have been raised in captivity, so they don’t have a “home” to return to and will stay in the environment you provide.

shade, lots of alcoves and secret places for children and adults to retreat to for quiet contemplation, and plenty of water to add a cooling element. “The two biggest trees are ones my mother insisted on buying for me,” Lewis recalled. “She paid $1,000 for the trees and had the nursery come and plant them. When I objected to her extravagance, she told me, ‘You’ll never enjoy your garden if you don’t get shade.’ That is one of the most meaningful things my mother has done for me.” Lewis grew up in tropical Tallahassee, Florida, where she had no interest in gardens and gardening, although she has fond and vivid memories of playing with friends in the next-door neighbor’s garden where there was a maze, as well as a huge tree with an umbrella-shaped canopy and blossoms that smelled like bananas. Those childhood hours spent in the neighbor’s garden were the seeds that were nurtured years later when Lewis became friends with an avid gardener. “She taught me everything I know. I began to love it, and it became a passion for me. I couldn’t wait

for the growing season,” said Lewis, noting that those early years also helped shape her approach to developing her own garden. “I wanted a child-friendly garden with places to play; lots of hidden alcoves; and private, secret spaces; spots that inspire and awe – and a beach to harken to my Florida memories,” she said. Lewis has created all that and more. As winner of the sixth Lovely Laker Landscape Contest, Lewis will receive $1,000 in credit to use on plants, materials or anything else available at Lakescapes Nursery.

After undergoing 13 years of restoration, the 1947 Chris-Craft owned by Lars and Cindy Okeson is ready to make its SML debut.

O

n a beautiful, blue-sky morning at the end of July, members of the Smith Mountain Lake Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society gathered, champagne in hand, at the SML State Park boat launch. They were eager to toast Miss Cynthia, a gleaming, 1947 22-foot ChrisCraft Sportsman, before owners Lars and Cindy Okeson took it for a test run. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is her maiden voyage,â&#x20AC;? explained an enthusiastic George Blosser, the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chairman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This boat has been in the process of restoration for 13 years, and now sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why our committee chose her.â&#x20AC;? Miss Cynthia, which Lars named after his wife, will be the featured boat at the 23rd annual SML Antique & Classic Boat Show and Festival, which will take place Sept. 14 at The Pointe at Mariners /DQGLQJ%XWĂ&#x20AC;UVWWKH8QHHGHGDIHZWULSVRXWRQ the water to make sure it was ready for the debut. Blosser watched from the shoreline, pointing out trademark characteristics of Miss Cynthiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heritage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After World War II, there was a shortage of attractive wood, so they would paint the sides white to cover the mismatched pieces. The white paint on Miss Cynthia is authentic,â&#x20AC;? Blosser said. 46 6HSWHPEHUÂ&#x2021;2FWREHU 2013 | SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKER

For club members, the restoration of a post-World War II, American-made vessel to its former glory is both fascinating and nostalgic. For the Okesons, Miss Cynthia’s renewal means more family adventures on the water. “I grew up near Lake George, N.Y., and have fond memories of the old sportsman boats my friends owned there,” said Lars. “That’s what led to buying Woody Too, our 17-foot Chris-Craft runabout, in 1997.” The purchase of Woody Too came just after Lars and Cindy retired to Smith Mountain Lake, a place they had never heard of a year before. The couple, who met while working for GTE Government

Systems in Washington, D.C., married in 1995. A short time later, a friend suggested they visit Smith Mountain Lake on their way home from dropping her daughter off at college in Alabama. “It was one of those days where the skies were blue with puffy clouds, and we were convinced to really check it out,” said Lars, who soon scheduled a VHFRQGYLVLWWR60/´:HEURXJKWGRZQDÀEHUJODVV runabout to see the area from the lake. By that Thanksgiving, I was closing a deal on a house.” The Okesons have three children and eight grandchildren. As their family grew, the couple realized a boat the size of Woody Too just wouldn’t VXIÀFH “Woody Too is a two-cockpit [boat], and we would have to make the grandchildren sit still when we took them out in it. We wanted something larger that was more fun to take the family out in,” said Cindy. “When we bought both boats we said we didn’t want a project. But with both, we got a project.” Lars found the Chris-Craft sportsman online in 2000. He and Cindy picked it up in Minneapolis, Minn., and hauled it back to Smith Mountain Lake.

The world always looks brighter from behind a smile.

Members of the SML Chapter of the Antique & Classic Boat Society gather around and aboard Miss Cynthia before its maiden voyage in July.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was like peeling an onion,â&#x20AC;? said Lars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As you removed one layer, you found other problems. It went for a new bottom and came back with several other parts repaired or in need of repair.â&#x20AC;? Miss Cynthia received work on the keel, gripe, inner bottom, transom, chimes, quarter rails and Ă RRUV 7KH HQJLQH ZDV RYHUKDXOHG WUDQVPLVVLRQ rebuilt and gauges restored. Lars personally installed the drive line, fuel system, new wiring, interior dash JDXJHVDQGĂ RRUFRYHULQJ2IFRXUVHKDYLQJKHOSIXO friends from the local club came in handy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ninety percent of the boat is still original from &KULV&UDIW 7KH WRS GHFN HYHQ KDV WKH RULJLQDO stain. All that area needed was some sanding and several coats of varnish. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tedious work to get the YDUQLVKULJKW>&OXEPHPEHU@/DUU\7DUYLVKDVGRQH varnishing before, so we did the varnish together,â&#x20AC;? said Lars. Lars, who also worked extensively on the beat-up trailer that brought Miss Cynthia to SML, said ChrisCraft and companies like it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t build boats to last 60 years. ´7KH\EXLOWWKHPWRODVWVL[RUVHYHQ\HDUVEHFDXVH WKH\ZDQWHGSHRSOHWRKDYHWREX\DQHZERDW2QO\ fools like us are out here trying to make a boat last forever,â&#x20AC;? said Lars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After the show, [Miss Cynthia] will be a family boat, which is what it has been destined for. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take it to other shows, too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to think of my role as a guardianship of Miss Cynthia. Many of us who have antique boats feel that we just own these boats for a period of time to restore them to life, keep them alive, and then theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be moved to someone else for safe keeping.â&#x20AC;?

Berube said. One memorable outing, he said, was the time Heritage was struck by lightning. A visiting friend decided to â&#x20AC;&#x153;beat a storm homeâ&#x20AC;? from Berubeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dock near Virginia Dare Marina. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He blew his engine near R23 and called to ask me to come out and give him a tow,â&#x20AC;? said Berube, who no more than got to him and brought him aboard when lightning hit Heritageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s masthead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It sounded like a grenade going off in the cockpit,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Knocked us both unconscious for who knows how long.â&#x20AC;?


Once the pair came to, Berube noticed fried wiring throughout Heritage, but the port engine was still running.

For more than 35 years, local artisans have been producing distinctive and functional pottery in bucolic Bedford County.

T

hey’ve been featured in the Smithsonian Institution, at Mount Vernon and 0RQWLFHOOR <RX·OO ÀQG WKHP RQ WKH pages of King Arthur Flour catalogs and in gift shops across the country. The recognizable patterns and patina of Emerson Creek Pottery have enticed customers and collectors since the Bedford County business opened in 1977. Jim Leavitt, owner and founder, said he started out as a potter with a desire to make functional art. What better way, he thought, than through the dinnerware, cookware and decorative pieces created at Emerson Creek?

“We are continually designing new patterns, such as the Dogwood, which will be introduced soon.” JIM LEAVITT, EMERSON CREEK POTTERY OWNER

Today, the company offers 40 different forms, 11 patterns and three color glazes. Each piece is formed of clay made on site and then hand painted by local artist Melinda Schissler. “She is exceptionally good – very fast,” said Leavitt. “She has an art degree from Longwood, and has the ability to do the work very well. It’s not something just any artist can do.” Leavitt said customers often have a hard time believing each piece is painted by hand without use of stencils or templates. “And yet, it’s really true,” he said. “It’s a lot of work. Each piece is the same, but it’s not. It’s just a little bit different. Each piece is like a work of art in that respect.”

ABOVE Artist Melinda Schissler paints the Lavender pattern on a posie pitcher. LEFT From top, Emerson Creek Pottery owner Jim Leavitt inspects a bowl in the company’s warehouse; paint supplies await the deft touch of Schissler, who paints each piece of pottery without a pattern or stencil.

The look of the pottery has evolved over the years ²IURPDPRUHUXVWLFHDUWKHQZDUHÀQLVKWRRQHWKDWLV now reminiscent of contemporary ceramic, Leavitt said. While some of Emerson Creek’s original patterns still exist and continue to be popular (such as the signature Field of Iris design), newer lines such as Copper Clay have made a mark, answering consumers’ desire for a more contemporary look. “We are continually designing new patterns, such as the Dogwood, which will be introduced soon,” said Leavitt, explaining that the popularity of patterns varies by region of the country and by season. “An example is Cranberry. It tends to be popular in winter, but also in places where people grow cranberries, like Michigan and Maine,” he said. “Pinecone is also seasonal and more popular in the West. The Iris is popular everywhere. It’s our oldest pattern.” Part of the design process, Leavitt explained, includes gathering feedback from customers online or in Emerson Creek’s outlet store, which is housed in a log cabin that dates back to 1825. Adjacent to the store are buildings that house the kilns, the painting room, the tool and die machines, the slip cast space and storage. The facility sits on 15 acres that provide Leavitt’s crew daily inspiration from a pastoral setting with views of the Blue Ridge.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We use our own clay formula, basically a porcelain-type clay, that is very hard and quite durable. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough, about as tough as pottery can be.â&#x20AC;? JIM LEAVITT, EMERSON CREEK POTTERY OWNER

Leavitt said the daily challenges he faces vary from basic business functions to technical problems to sales, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like having a lot of things to do.â&#x20AC;? Taking photos for and managing the website are also part of Leavittâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s duties. For those who shop online, Emerson Creek generally ships within one to two days after an order is received. Leavitt said hundreds of orders go out each week. Over the past 2-3 years, he said the growing demand for products made in the U.S. has helped his business thrive. On the bottom of each pot, bowl, plate, mug and even dog dish is stamped â&#x20AC;&#x153;Emerson Creek Pottery, Bedford, Virginia,â&#x20AC;? and the date of manufacture. Leavitt said while Emerson Creek canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t intend to compete with big-box store dishware prices, the heirloom pottery is reasonably priced. A setting of four pieces â&#x20AC;&#x201C; dinner and salad plates, bowl and mug â&#x20AC;&#x201C; runs around $62.

“We use our own clay formula, basically a porcelain-type clay, that is very hard and quite durable,” Leavitt said. “It’s tough, about as tough as pottery can be.” During the summer months, Emerson Creek sees an increase in visitors to the outlet store, including Smith Mountain Lake tourists on the lookout for a distinctive souvenir. Popular is the SML pattern, which the company recently redesigned. “We decided to refresh it and make it nicer,” said Leavitt, who reintroduced the pattern in July. “Reaction has been good. We’ve sold a lot.” A variety of Emerson Creek pottery, including the SML pattern, is also available at The General Store at Westlake Corner.

ALL FIRED UP

R

eady to try your hand at painting pottery? All Fired Up, a new ceramic studio at the lake, can hook you up. Located just north of Hales Ford Bridge on Virginia 122, the business offers more than 2,000 pieces of matte pottery, known as bisqueware. “Mugs are very popular,” said Maureen Leitenberger, who opened the studio in June. “Boys like the dinosaurs and tanks. Girls like the trinket boxes, butterfly boxes, unicorn boxes.” Once patrons pick out their bisqueware, they sit at one of several work tables to create a personalized masterpiece. Customers leave their items with Leitenberger, who glazes and fires them. The finished product is usually ready to be

picked up in a day or two. The cost is a $6 studio fee, plus the price of the bisqueware. No appointment is necessary during the studio’s regular business hours, which are noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. “It’s a great thing for grandparents to do with their grandchildren,” Leitenberger said. “I get a lot of local families that come in. It’s not strictly tourists.” All Fired Up also books group events for occasions such as birthday parties, girls’ night out and bridal showers.

“When the earthquake hit in Haiti, my thought was: ‘That’s not very far. I can get on a plane and go to Haiti.’ Some people, their midlife crisis is God knows what. Mine was, ‘I need to go do something more.’” While watching television coverage of the disaster, Sarbin saw an interview with Vanessa Carpenter, founder of Salem-based Angel Missions Haiti, a &KULVWLDQ QRQSURÀW WKDW DUUDQJHV PHGLFDO FDUH IRU Haitian children. Sarbin wasted no time contacting WKHDJHQF\WRÀQGRXWKRZKHFRXOGJHWLQYROYHG “Angel Missions has been taking medical teams to Haiti since before the earthquake,” he said. “Vanessa told me they would get me there, but I needed to put together a medical team and collect supplies. I said ‘OK,’ and started making phone calls.”

A month later, Sarbin and several other area practitioners and volunteers were providing medical aid in Haiti. In 2011, the team made a second trip, taking along Dr. Kitty Humphreys, a physician with Centra’s Village Family Physicians in Moneta. “I was familiar with Angel Missions and had fostered and treated children the program would bring [to the U.S.] from Haiti for medical care,” Humphreys said. “At the time the team was going on its second trip, my own four children were all at an age where I could leave to go there.” Sarbin said Angel Missions provides logistical help for the trips, including making travel arrangements and designating clinics that need assistance. Each trip is usually 7-9 days with team members treating patients of all ages for a variety of health issues. SMITHMOUNTAINLAKE.COM

You treat for possible infection and hope there is no rabies. “You’ll be treating one person and wondering what happened to the person you treated yesterday or a few days ago. The hardest part of these trips is not knowing what happens to the patients you see. It just breaks my heart thinking about it.”

A STAR(FISH) IS BORN

T

he more medical mission trips they took to Haiti, the more area physicians Adam Sarbin, Kitty Humphreys and their team became attached to the people and culture of Haiti. At home in their communities, awareness and interest also continued to grow.

In March 2012, at the end of team’s third trip to Haiti, an idea began to take shape.

“Haiti doesn’t just need help because of the earthquake,” Sarbin said. “That country is the most impoverished country in the Western Hemisphere, and probably one of the most impoverished in the world. We realized in working with some of the more established health clinics that their reach is only so far. What about the very rural places out of their reach? Who is serving those communities? There are so many places still in need of care.”

The result was the formation of Project Starfish Haiti, an organization working toward 501c3 nonprofit status that is committed to establishing a more sustainable structure for delivering medical care to the people of Haiti.

76 6HSWHPEHU‡2FWREHU 2013 | SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKER

“There was recurring enthusiasm to show that this was not a ‘flash in the pan.’ The people who were going [on the mission trips] wanted to keep going,” said Sarbin.

“My desire is to have the organization raise funds that can help subsidize the cost for each [team member], which means we can attract more people. And the more people we attract, the more

often we can send care there, and the better the care we can provide,” said Sarbin. He said the organization’s name was inspired by an essay, which was originally written by Loren Eiseley, an American educator, philosopher and author, that has been adapted into various stories. In the parable, the narrator finds a man on a beach throwing starfish into the ocean to save them from the stifling mud. When the narrator points out the foolishness of trying to save a few starfish among the thousands, the man picks one up and replies that doing so “makes a difference for this one.” “That’s the whole idea of the starfish theme. We do so little, but what we do affects a person,” Sarbin said. The doctors agreed that what they’ve gained from their trips to Haiti far outweighs any sacrifices.

“When we go there, we contribute tiny acts, but we bring back so much more,” said Humphreys. “I would like as many people to go as possible because of what they would find there. The people of Haiti are happy, joyful, tight as a community and helpful to one another.” Sarbin added, “You go and you think you’re going to find utter desolation and people wallowing in desperation, and they’re not. You definitely come away with more than you give.” Project Starfish Haiti is not limited to medical professionals and encourages volunteers with skills of any type to join in on mission trips. Financial and material support is also a significant part of the project’s needs. For more information, visit projectstarfishhaiti.net.

HOME TOUR | 2013 GUIDE

T

he 2013 Smith Mountain Lake Charity Home Tour will welcome guests by land and water for the 23rd straight year on Columbus Day weekend (Oct. 11-13). What better way to soak in the whole experience than by taking the tour by boat? This year, with the homes clustered nicely along the Roanoke River channel and adjoining Craddock and Witcher creeks, round-trip run time is only about two hours. This estimate allows for docking and occasional waiting for tie-up space (though tour organizers are doing all they can to make neighboring docks available and said they don’t expect low water to inhibit docking this year). Boaters should be able to visit all eight homes in one day. Then again, there is nothing wrong with taking your time, enjoying the scenery, and making the tour two fun days of boating – or a boating day plus a few stops by road. While the visiting order suggested on the following pages is an economical approach, your route may vary depending on departure point and other stops. Before setting out, make sure you have ample gas, sunscreen, water and a fully charged mobile phone. The SML Water Safety Council also recommends all boaters wear life jackets or, at the very least, have them on deck where they can be grabbed quickly in an emergency.

WANT TO GO? 2013 SML CHARITY HOME TOUR What Eight waterfront homes, accessible by car or boat, featuring distinctive architecture, interior design and landscaping, are open for tours. Proceeds benefit eight area charities. When Oct. 11-12 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Oct. 13 from 1 to 5 p.m. Tickets $20 in advance online or at local outlets (see website for a complete list); $25 on home tour days at the individual homes or the SML Visitor Center at Bridgewater Plaza (cash or check only) Contact To find out more about this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homes and charities, to volunteer or purchase tickets, visit smlcharityhometour.com or call 540.297.8687. More Info For additional coverage of the 2013 event, pick up copies of our sister publication, Laker Weekly, on Oct. 4 and 11 or log onto lakerweekly.com.

When heading downstream (toward the dam), odd-numbered (green) channel markers will be on the right, and even-numbered (red) markers will be on the left. Going upstream (away from the dam), the opposite will be true. Lower-numbered markers are nearer the dam. Channel markers do not indicate distance to the dam or to one another, but rather channel boundaries in numerical sequence.

Layton Home

#6 ON MAP AND HOME TOUR BROCHURE GPS: 37 deg. 9.795N, 79 deg. 42.725W

The Layton home, formerly used strictly for family vacations, became a retirement home after the owners had it redesigned and added a second floor. Now the homewonersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; primary residence, it showcases exotic possessions acquired through travel and living abroad. There are furniture pieces and artifacts from China, India, Egypt, Nepal, Bali and Cambodia. After two African safaris, the Laytons created an extensive collection of wildlife photos that will be on display for home tour visitors.

BY BOAT: Starting at the bridge, head upstream. After you pass marker R37A, look on the left for the beige home with green trim and two retaining walls. If you reach marker R39, you have gone about a quarter of a mile too far. (Approximate run time: 14 minutes) SMITHMOUNTAINLAKE.COM

Nocera Home

#5 ON MAP AND HOME TOUR BROCHURE GPS: 37 deg. 8.85N, 79 deg. 79.413W

Barb and Will Nocera’s EarthCraft gold-rated home is 49 percent more energy efficient than the average new home. The couple said they save a significant amount of money on utility bills because of the “green” products and techniques used by their builder. The open-concept main floor allows for one-level living, but downstairs also has a family room, office, art studio and guest bedrooms.

Read a feature story on this home in our July/August 2013 issue, available online at smithmountainlake.com/lakermagazine and in the iTunes App Store.

BY BOAT: Return to the main channel and turn right. After you pass marker R31, look for the yellow house at the entrance to the small cove on the right side of the river, just before it makes a left turn. The Nocera home has porches on upper and lower levels and yellow kayaks on the dock. Note: The home has steep steps from the dock to the house. Use caution. (8 minutes) SMITHMOUNTAINLAKE.COM

Smith Home

#1 ON MAP AND HOME TOUR BROCHURE GPS 37 deg. 7.70N, 79 deg 39.548W

In the community of Riverbay, Roger and Sybil Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home was formerly a ranch-style house that an architect helped the couple transform into a Gothic timber-frame showpiece with elevated ceilings and large, arching beams. There are 19thcentury antiques, including massive armoires, tall headboards and numerous hand-painted lamps. The lower level features nautical and military items from the collection of Roger Smith, a retired U.S. Air Force brigadier general. At the dock are two restored antique boats.

BY BOAT: Return to the main channel and turn right. Pass under Hales Ford Bridge. Pass marker R27A and angle into the cove on the right side of river. The Smith home is on the far side of the cove and has a stone chimney with two ceramic chimney pots. The dock houses two antique boats, which visitors can view after disembarking.

LAKER MEDIA FILE

Rick and Pam McKown handled nearly all the finishing of their 9,000-square-foot home after the structure was enclosed. So far, the process has taken approximately 10 years, several of which the couple spent living in the apartment above the garage. The McKowns installed every stone of the fireplace in the great room as well the adjacent built-in cabinets. They also installed the massive kitchen beams, the paneled study with fireplace and much more. The home, which sits on two waterfront lots, includes a pond system that spills toward the lake. BY BOAT: Return to the main channel and turn right. After passing marker R25, proceed straight ahead, passing three coves (two large and one small), to home on right. If you pass marker R21A, you have gone too far. (8 minutes) SMITHMOUNTAINLAKE.COM

In The Boardwalk, the Clark home is inviting and lushly decorated with numerous paintings, a crystal chandelier and a circa-1910 banquet table in the dining room. The living room, with a coffered ceiling and stone fireplace, has a collection of Royal Doulton dolls on display. The master suite, which was two bedrooms on the original plan, includes an exquisite closet/bathroom area. One guest bedroom features a collection of art by P. Buckley Moss.

BY BOAT: Return to the main channel and turn right, proceeding through the S curve.

Herbert Home

#4 ON MAP AND HOME TOUR BROCHURE GPS 37 deg. 3.603N, 79 deg. 32.585W

In Mountain View Shores, the Herbert home does, indeed, have a beautiful view of Smith Mountain. The home is close to the shoreline, and, when standing on the screened porch, it feels as if one could reach down and touch the water. The outside is contemporary, but inside the space is homey, decorated with antiques, handmade family quilts and a collection of inlaid wood marquetry artwork. The home has been extensively remodeled over the past five years to fit the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifestyle.

BY BOAT: Return to the main channel, keeping to the left of marker R11, but to right of nearby shoal markers. After you are safely past R11, cross toward the left side of the river. After you pass marker R8 (on your left), angle left (toward the dam). Keep markers R6, R4 and R2 to your left. Make a short left turn only after passing marker R2 (there is shallow water between the several islands on left before marker R2). Proceed straight into Witcher Creek, heading toward marker W1. Keep W1 to your left as you pass it; then follow the left shoreline into a large cove on your left, passing entrance to first small cove (inside the large cove) on left and entering larger cove just beyond it. Look for the second home (tan-colored) on left. (15 minutes) SMITHMOUNTAINLAKE.COM

#3 ON MAP AND HOME TOUR BROCHURE GPS 37 deg. 9.40N, 79 deg. 34.017 W

Thomas and Deanna Hall took a single-family home in Mariners Landing with a view of the golf course and Smith Mountain and had a contractor gut and adapt it to fit their needs. The new design allows the couple to enjoy one-level living, while the lower level has two guest bedrooms, a spacious game room and a large bar with 600-bottle wine cellar. Having spent some time in South Africa, the Halls have acquired a number of distinctive African artifacts.

BY BOAT: Return to marker R2. Keeping R2 to starboard, angle right into Craddock Creek. Pass small and large lighthouses on right and markers C2A and C4 as you proceed upstream. There are numerous shoal makers in the vicinity of the two lighthouses; keep them to your right. As you pass marker C4, you will see Mariners Landing high-rise condos ahead.

The Foster home, with nearly 500 feet of shoreline on Craddock Creek, has wide water and mountain views. A sweeping stone stairway from the lake leads to two patios â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one for dining and one for lounging that includes a gas firepit â&#x20AC;&#x201D; en route to the house. The home, a blend of Montana lodge and Northeast cottage of post-and-beam timbered-peg construction, has a masculine feel. The professionally decorated interior also features smart technology: a touch of a remote controls lighting, shades, temperature, TV and sound system in any room. BY BOAT: Head down Craddock Creek to marker C3A and turn right. Proceed straight along the right-hand shoreline to reddish home with tan stone lower level and extensive hardscaping. (8 minutes)

It went from a one-day event to two when the venue changed to Bernard’s Landing in 1991. < 30 percent of people who attend the wine festival stay in the area overnight or for the weekend, adding an estimated $540,000 to the local economy, according to the SML Regional Chamber of Commerce.

One such person was Lee Tucker, a local pathologist who, along with wife Mary Lynn, owned The Manor at Taylor’s Store, a bed and breakfast near the lake.

BELOW The Manor at Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Store, a lake-area B&B, hosted the inaugural event in 1989.

Not long after, the Tuckers struck up a conversation with their insurance agent, Phil Hager, who had a budding interest in wine, spurred by travels and experiences. Hager also was struck by the dearth of wine available in the area. And, as an active member of the Smith Mountain Lake Partnership (forerunner to the Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber of

Commerce), Hager was tasked with brainstorming ways to get people to visit the lake area after the traditional tourist season ended. In early 1989, Tucker and Hager were discussing these issues when they looked at each other and said simultaneously, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we have a wine festival?â&#x20AC;? The grounds at Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Store offered copious room for wineries and vendors to set up as well as room for parking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was new territory for everybody.

They worked with the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control to set up event rules, and then sent letters to wineries to solicit interest. It was not long before they had handpicked 10 wineries to participate in the one-day festival. (The wineries got remote festival licenses and proceeds from the gate were shared with them to make it worth their while.) Tucker ordered wine glasses and T-shirts emblazoned with the wine festival logo. Hager worked with Mothers Against Drunk Driving to develop a designated-driver

This special event offers and opportunity for Booker T. Washington National Monument to expand its daily educational programming and general tours and host a wide variety of fun and educational activities and demonstrations, according to Park Superintendent Carla Whitfield. “The harvest program is also a time for community to have ‘fun down on the farm,’ through farm tours, educational displays, hearth-cooking demos, wagon rides, food, music and plenty of good times for all ages,” said Whitfield. Attendees will experience what harvest time would have been like on a mid-19th Century Virginia tobacco plantation. “One of the primary goals behind this yearly event is to encourage people to reconnect with the land and the seasons, and to understand the hardships that historically accompanied producing food, particularly as experienced by enslaved folks like Washington and yeomen farmers of his time,” said Whitfield.

Smith Mountain Lake Charity Home Tour On Columbus Day weekend, eight waterfront homes will be open for tours to the general public to benefit eight lake-area charities. All homes are accessible by water and by road. If traveling by boat, volunteers will be available at each home to assist with docking. “This year’s selection of homes is highly unusual, though still characteristic of the eclectic nature of lake living,” said Bill Piatt, chairman of the event. “One home was built almost completely by the owners, another has won awards for its energy efficiency, and others that combine beautiful settings with incredible views.” During its 22-year history, the home tour has raised more than $3.5 million for charities.

Mad Max:

Unintended Consequences

W

HUONG FRALIN

hen Maxine Davies, a sophisticated and wealthy widow living in New York City, learns her only daughter, Merry, is badly injured in an automobile accident, she’s compelled to return to her hometown of Richmond to care for her, as well as her grandchildren. After Merry dies, “Mad Max” and the kids, including the paranormally gifted Emilie, suspect foul play. They set out to solve the crime and bring the killer to justice, learning some interesting truths along the way. “Mad Max: Unintended Consequences,” Smith Mountain Lake resident Betsy Ashton’s debut novel, was published in March by Virginia Beach-based .RHKOHU%RRNV,WLVWKHÀUVWLQZKDW$VKWRQSODQVWR be a three-book series. “My publisher also asked if I’d consider spinning off the granddaughter into her own book for the young-adult market,” Ashton said. “I’m giving his VXJJHVWLRQJUHDWWKRXJKWDQGKDYHÀJXUHGRXWKRZ to do it, I think.”

READER REVIEWS

The Prince of Tides By Pat Conroy My all-time favorite novel, “The Prince of Tides” was a recent re-read. This eloquently written book grabs you in the first 10 pages, letting you sink your teeth into good ole’ Southern charm. The novel tells the story of Tom Wingo, his troubled twin sister and their struggle to triumph over the destructive family into which they were born. Even if you have seen the movie, I encourage you to read the book to enjoy the extensive details not captured in the film. — Jennifer Chaconas, Moneta

SEND US YOUR PICK!

Look Again By Lisa Scottoline What would you do if you picked up a missing-child flyer and the boy in the photo looked identical to your adopted son? Such is the dilemma of journalist Ellen Gleeson in “Look Again,” a favorite book from one of my favorite authors. The fast-paced story takes turn after turn when Ellen starts to investigate and uncovers clues no one was meant to discover. When she digs too deep, she risks not only her own life, but that of the son she loves. I highly recommend this book! — Joanne Shervey, Moneta

Wish You Well By David Baldacci I was compelled to read â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wish You Wellâ&#x20AC;? because of its ties to the lake region. The film version of the book, written by part-time SML resident David Baldacci, will be released later this year. One of its producers is fellow Laker Sarah Elizabeth Timmins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wish You Wellâ&#x20AC;? is an emotional coming-of-age story set in far Southwest Virginia in the 1940s. Twelve-year-old Lou Cardinal and her younger brother, Oz, are sent to live with their great-grandmother after a car accident kills their father and leaves their mother in a catatonic state. Though Lou rebels at first, she comes to appreciate the ultra-rural way of life and her familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heritage â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and later fights to preserve it. I enjoyed the book and am looking forward to the movie.
