You race cars in real life. Did you do so for the film? Tragically, no. But you get to see some great cars, and there are lots of explosions. What makes this third film different from the others? The second was more adolescent in its humor. This one has more humanity to it. There are some beautiful characters. Did you like playing a darker character? Certainly. With [Grey’s], I’m limited as to what my character is allowed to do. Enchanted was fun, and Made of Honor was great. But you definitely want to try, if you have the opportunity, to do things that are different. Read more at Have a question for Walter Scott? Visit /celebrity or write Walter Scott at P.O.

Manner Up! Modern etiquette made easy

Q: At what point is it okay to start eating when sitting with a large group? —Hannah R., Bangor, Maine

A: The standard rule of mealtime behavior is that you wait until everyone is served, but the etiquette mavens who originally came up with that were not imagining business dinners at banquet tables seating 50. Good manners must suit the times and the dictates of common sense. So here’s a modern plan, says Patricia Rossi, etiquette coach and author of the forthcoming Everyday Etiquette: “In a group of six to eight people, wait until all are served. In larger groups, wait for the host or perhaps a senior member of the party to say, ‘Please eat.’ ” (Not that the person giving the order has to be a particular age, though the assembled probably shouldn’t be taking directives from a hungry 9-year-old.) If the group is very large, with one end of the table not even knowing what’s going on at the other, someone—perhaps you— should invite those on either side of you to eat before the food gets cold, Rossi suggests. What’s important is acknowledging you’re thinking about the comfort of others while still honoring the communal idea of “breaking bread.” —Judith Newman Send your questions to July 3, 2011 • 5

Sunday with ... moves to a New York beat. “It’s in my blood,” she says of the fastpaced city she calls home. For much of the past seven years, she has shifted that energy to L.A. to film her hit show, The Closer, which starts its final season July 11 (TNT, 9 p.m. ET). Sedgwick, 45, discusses bittersweet endings and new beginnings with Kate Meyers.

What’s always in your fridge? Kale. I’m addicted to it these days! I steam it and then add flaxseed oil and spice—amazing. Any other standbys in there? Newman-O’s cookies, the traditional flavor.

What’s in store for The Closer in its closing season? It’s all about Brenda getting a comeuppance. Her old cases and questionable tactics come back to haunt her. This whole season is about loss, which is appropriate since it’s our last. It will take her to some dark and interesting places, but we’ll have moments of lightness along the way. Is there a part of Brenda that’s tough to shake? I’ve always had this feeling of pride about “Oh, it’s just a job, I can shake it off,” but there’s no question that when you’re giving your heart and soul over to a character, it’s hard. I have bad Brenda dreams about terrible things happening to the people I love. What will you now have time for that you’ve been aching to do? Honestly, I’m a bit scared. I’m not a hobby person. I look forward to grandchildren because I think that will be my hobby, but that’s probably not going to happen for a long time. [Sedgwick’s two children, with 6 • July 3, 2011

That’s a good combination. Right—it’s the yin and the yang. What object in your apartment says a lot about your personality?

What does Sunday mean to you? I like to read the paper; it’s my time to catch up with the world. Ideally I have brunch with my husband and kids. Sundays are hard because I grew up in a divorced family, and sometimes the day was about going to the other home, which was always sort of confusing. I can still get what I call Sunday-itis.

I know you love to dance— what’s your music of choice? I really like dancing to Motown and old ’70s funk. If I could go to an all-’70s nightclub, that would make me so happy. Seriously. Any upside to the empty nest? There’s something to waking up and thinking, “What am I doing today?” instead of, “How can I squeeze in what I need to do around their schedules?” But hearing my kids walk through the front door saying hello is still the best sound to me.



What constitutes a perfect date with your husband? Um … what do you think? [laughs] We like to be alone together, and then go out to dinner. I really love to talk about thoughts and feelings. That never gets old.

Boys can be affected by HPV disease too.




Elizabeth Cohen, CNN’s senior medical correspondent, on what to look for to guarantee a safe season*


Bug repellent Seek out one that contains DEET, Picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535 (the oil is not recommended for children under 3; DEET, not for infants under 2 months old).


Sunscreen It should be waterresistant, protect against both UVA and UVB, and have an SPF of 30 (no need to go higher).


Cream or gel for sunburns, in case you forgot the sunscreen. Look for one with aloe vera.


Anti-itch treatments Calamine lotion, an oatmeal bath soak, and hydrocortisone cream work on mosquito bites or poison ivy (in a pinch, use a paste of baking soda and water).


Ice packs They’ll soothe bruises, bug bites, and stings. For your travel kit, use instant ice packs—no refrigeration required.


Hat Keep your head covered for protection from the sun.

*Get two of everything and keep an extra set in the car.




When it comes to human papillomavirus (HPV), females are only half the equation. There are 30 to 40 types of HPV that will affect an estimated 75% to 80% of males and females in their lifetime. For most, HPV clears on its own. But, for others who don’t clear certain types, HPV could cause cervical cancer in females and other types of HPV could cause genital warts in both males and females. And there’s no way to predict who will or won’t clear the virus. GARDASIL is the only HPV vaccine that helps protect against 4 types of HPV. In girls and young women ages 9 to 26, GARDASIL helps protect against 2 types of HPV that cause about 75% of cervical cancer cases, and 2 more types that cause 90% of genital warts cases. In boys and young men ages 9 to 26, GARDASIL helps protect against 90% of genital warts cases. GARDASIL may not fully protect everyone, nor will it protect against diseases caused by other HPV types or against diseases not caused by HPV. GARDASIL does not prevent all types of cervical cancer, so it’s important for women to continue routine cervical cancer screenings. GARDASIL does not treat cervical cancer or genital warts. GARDASIL is given as 3 injections over 6 months.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION Anyone who is allergic to the ingredients of GARDASIL, including those severely allergic to yeast, should not receive the vaccine. GARDASIL is not for women who are pregnant. The side effects include pain, swelling, itching, bruising, and redness at the injection site, headache, fever, nausea, dizziness, vomiting, and fainting. Fainting can happen after getting GARDASIL. Sometimes people who faint can fall and hurt themselves. For this reason, your child’s health care professional may ask your child to sit or lie down for 15 minutes after he or she gets GARDASIL. Some people who faint might shake or become stiff. This may require evaluation or treatment by your child’s health care professional. Only a doctor or health care professional can decide if GARDASIL is right for your child. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit or call 1-800-FDA-1088. Please read the Patient Information on the next page and discuss it with your child’s doctor or health care professional.

9883616 USPPI Patient Information about ® GARDASIL (pronounced “gard-Ah-sill”) Generic name: [Human Papillomavirus Quadrivalent (Types 6, 11, 16, and 18) Vaccine, Recombinant] 1

Read this information with care before getting GARDASIL . You (the person getting GARDASIL) will need 3 doses of the vaccine. It is important to read this leaflet when you get each dose. This leaflet does not take the place of talking with your health care provider about GARDASIL. What is GARDASIL? GARDASIL is a vaccine (injection/shot) that is used for girls and women 9 through 26 years of age to help protect against the following diseases caused by Human Papillomavirus (HPV): • Cervical cancer • Vulvar and vaginal cancers • Anal cancer • Genital warts • Precancerous cervical, vaginal, vulvar, and anal lesions GARDASIL is used for boys and men 9 through 26 years of age to help protect against the following diseases caused by HPV: • Anal cancer • Genital warts • Precancerous anal lesions The diseases listed above have many causes, and GARDASIL only protects against diseases caused by certain kinds of HPV (called Type 6, Type 11, Type 16, and Type 18). Most of the time, these 4 types of HPV are responsible for the diseases listed above. GARDASIL cannot protect you from a disease that is caused by other types of HPV, other viruses, or bacteria. GARDASIL does not treat HPV infection. You cannot get HPV or any of the above diseases from GARDASIL. What important information about GARDASIL should I know? • You should continue to get routine cervical cancer screening. • GARDASIL may not fully protect everyone who gets the vaccine. • GARDASIL will not protect against HPV types that you already have. Who should not get GARDASIL? You should not get GARDASIL if you have, or have had: • an allergic reaction after getting a dose of GARDASIL. • a severe allergic reaction to yeast, amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate, polysorbate 80. What should I tell my health care provider before getting GARDASIL? Tell your health care provider if you: • are pregnant or planning to get pregnant. GARDASIL is not recommended for use in pregnant women. • have immune problems, like HIV infection, cancer, or you take medicines that affect your immune system. • have a fever over 100°F (37.8°C). • had an allergic reaction to another dose of GARDASIL. • take any medicines, even those you can buy over the counter. Your health care provider will help decide if you should get the vaccine. How is GARDASIL given? GARDASIL is a shot that is usually given in the arm muscle. You will need 3 shots given on the following schedule: • Dose 1: at a date you and your health care provider choose. • Dose 2: 2 months after Dose 1. • Dose 3: 6 months after Dose 1. Fainting can happen after getting GARDASIL. Sometimes people who faint can fall and hurt themselves. For this reason, your health care provider may ask you to sit or lie down for 15 minutes after you get GARDASIL. Some people who faint might shake or become stiff. This may require evaluation or treatment by your health care provider. Make sure that you get all 3 doses on time so that you get the best protection. If you miss a dose, talk to your health care provider.

Can other vaccines and medications be given at the same time as GARDASIL? GARDASIL can be given at the same time as RECOMBIVAX HB ®1 [hepatitis B vaccine (recombinant)] or Menactra [Meningococcal (Groups A, C, Y and W-135) Polysaccharide Diphtheria Toxoid Conjugate Vaccine] and Adacel [Tetanus Toxoid, Reduced Diphtheria Toxoid and Acellular Pertussis Vaccine Adsorbed (Tdap)].

Is it true that once a bee stings a person or animal and leaves its stinger behind, it will never grow another stinger? —John Stratton, Baltimore

What are the possible side effects of GARDASIL? The most common side effects with GARDASIL are: • pain, swelling, itching, bruising, and redness at the injection site • headache • fever • nausea • dizziness • vomiting • fainting There was no increase in side effects when GARDASIL was given at the same time as RECOMBIVAX HB [hepatitis B vaccine (recombinant)]. There was more injection-site swelling at the injection site for GARDASIL when GARDASIL was given at the same time as Menactra [Meningococcal (Groups A, C, Y and W-135) Polysaccharide Diphtheria Toxoid Conjugate Vaccine] and Adacel [Tetanus Toxoid, Reduced Diphtheria Toxoid and Acellular Pertussis Vaccine Adsorbed (Tdap)]. Tell your health care provider if you have any of the following problems because these may be signs of an allergic reaction: • difficulty breathing • wheezing (bronchospasm) • hives • rash

Yes—in fact, the bee will die. Many bees have barbed stingers that stick in the body of the animal that has been stung. When the bee flies off, the stinger is torn from its abdomen, and it will die from the injury. But these bees often sting other insects without harming themselves. Other types of bees have smooth stingers and can sting repeatedly. Still others have no stingers at all.

WORDS WE NEED bullova (noun) a counterfeit watch, often sold near tourist attractions

Tell your health care provider if you have: • swollen glands (neck, armpit, or groin) • joint pain • unusual tiredness, weakness, or confusion • chills • generally feeling unwell • leg pain • shortness of breath • chest pain • aching muscles • muscle weakness • seizure • bad stomach ache • bleeding or bruising more easily than normal • skin infection

notox (noun) industrial-strength makeup



Complete 1 to 81 so the numbers follow a horizontal or vertical path—no diagonals.

Contact your health care provider right away if you get any symptoms that concern you, even several months after getting the vaccine.


For a more complete list of side effects, ask your health care provider. What are the ingredients in GARDASIL? The ingredients are proteins of HPV Types 6, 11, 16, and 18, amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate, yeast protein, sodium chloride, L-histidine, polysorbate 80, sodium borate, and water for injection.

SUMMER GRILLING How-To’s from Guy Fieri and BBQ King Steven Raichlen—Plus the Best Tools and Rubs


hen you smell barbecue, what do you think of?” Guy Fieri asks, leaning in across the picnic table at his Sonoma County, Calif., home, his bleached blond hair and colorful tattoos gleaming in the sunlight. “You think campfire! You think party!” Ever since Fieri was named the Next Food Network Star five years ago, he and his high-octane approach to cooking have been on display everywhere: He hosts two Food Network series, Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives and Guy’s Big Bite, and NBC’s hit Minute to Win It; has a new show with Rachael Ray set to air next year; owns restaurants in five cities; and has written three best-selling cookbooks, including the new Guy Fieri Food. Even the sunglasses he’s wearing bear his name. Success has brought the 43-year-old Fieri some cool creature comforts, including his current favorite toy: a six-foot-wide Vidalia grill. “The great thing about a grill is that you can cook a whole meal on it—it’s easy as long as you’re willing to make mistakes,” Fieri says. “We’ve all got this fire instinct, and people just gravitate toward it.” Fieri’s own fascination with cooking outdoors dates to his childhood in Northern California, when aromas from backyard barbecues would waft in through his bedroom window. On family trips, most often to a cabin in the mountains, the grill was often the only game going. “Before we had a stove, all we had was a barbecue, so I had to learn how to make the coals real hot so we could DINNER IS SERVED: Fieri, with younger son Ryder, cook mac and cheese,” he outside his California home. says. Today, when Fieri

vacations with his wife, Lori, and sons, Hunter, 14, and Ryder, 5, they cook everything over the campfire, from pizza to spaghetti and meatballs to cake. “Lori doesn’t let me cook inside the RV,” Fieri says, laughing. Not everyone has a yard like Fieri’s—with a jukebox, a fire pit, and a pizza oven—but by following his tips, everyone, even grilling greenhorns, can look like an old pro. LESSON ONE: PUMP UP THE VOLUME

“[Music] gets the energy going,” Fieri says. “Nothing sets the mood better than some Gipsy Kings while you’re grilling up red snapper or handmade tortillas. And if you’re just kicking back, you have to have Lynyrd Skynyrd playing.”

What’s Guy’s secret grilling weapon? Find out in our exclusive video, plus get recipes from his new book, at Parade .com/grill.


“The trick is to give everyone a job,” Fieri says when asked how to play both chef and host. “Have one friend keep an eye on the grill while another shucks the corn.” Get kids involved, too. “Cooking is freedom,” he says. “It empowers kids. And when they create something, they have more of a tendency to eat it.” LESSON THREE: REMEMBER, LESS IS MORE

Instead of stacking your menu with new recipes, “do what you know how to do and take a gamble with one item,” Fieri advises. “It’s about building a repertoire. Go with the aces in your back pocket.”



Failure to launch. There are three steps to lighting a gas grill. First, open the lid, and keep it open. (Forgetting to do so before igniting the grill can cause an explosion.) Next, turn on the gas. Finally, press the igniter button. You should hear a “whoomp” when the grill is lit. To make sure, hold your hand three inches above the grate until you feel the heat. If there’s no heat, turn off the gas, let the grill air out a few w minutes, and try again.


Premature saucing. Apply sweet barbecue sauce only during the last few minutes of cooking. If you put it on too early, the sugar in the sauce will burn before the meat is cooked.


Inferno-izing. It’s about ut heat control, not building ing a raging fire. Have a hot zone for searing, a medium dium zone for cooking, and a safety zone that is fire free.


Piling it on. It’s human nature to fill every last square inch of the grate with food, but try to leave at least 25 percent of it empty so you’ll have room to maneuver when flare-ups ha happen.


Stabbing brats. Always turn brats with tongs, not a barbecue fork. Because brats, or bratwurst, start off as raw sausage in a casing, they fill up with sizzling jjuices as they’re grilled. Piercing them releases these juices, causing flare-ups and drying them out. (This is not usually a problem with hot dogs, because the they’re already cooked.) You really shouldn’t stab any me meat—chicken, chops, steaks—because puncturing the flesh es will release some of the juices. To turn fish, use the longest spring-loaded tongs you can find.





“There’ve been times when I thought I’d rock the pork chops, then I over-brined them, so we just enjoyed green beans and basmati rice.” Fieri’s go-to side? “Season small red potatoes liberally, put them on skewers, wrap them in foil, and place them on the grill,” he says. “They’re pretty indestructible.”

Overdoing it. Many guys believe that if something is good, more of it must be better. Go easy on the wood smoke, seasoning, and hot sauce.


Losing your cool. Keep meat, seafood, and other perishables on ice, not under the hot sun, right up until they go on the grill. Food poisoning should not be part of your cookout.

around the house, men saw barbecuing as a way to contribute to their family’s domestic bliss without seeming too feminine. Plus, as many of them were World War II vets, firing up the grill had the thrilling potential for danger. They could douse a kettle of charcoal with lighter fluid, strike a match, and step back to watch a ball of flame erupt into the sky. “If you can’t stand the heat, go back to the kitchen!” could well have been the rallying cry of these husbands, some of whom even took to wearing— gasp!—aprons.

hen Dean Fearing was a 10-year-old boy in eastern Kentucky, his dad handed him a fork k and told him to turn over the steak that was smoking away on a Weber grill.. “Right at that moment, my life changed forever,” he recalls. “I knew I had met my destiny.” Today, at his namesake e restaurant in the RitzCarlton hotel in Dallas, Fearing spends up to 12 hours a day preparing what he calls “elevated American cuisine”—such delicacies, cooked over a mesquite-burning fire, as Apricot Barbecue Glazed Bob White Quail and Maple-Black Peppercorn Soaked Buffalo Tenderloin. It’s a high-profile and d well-paying job, “and if I’m honest with you,” Fearing says with the grin n of a man who knows he’s lucky, “it’s just a glorified form of the grilling I did when I was a kid.”

GRILLING CHEAT SHEET! Print out our goof-proof guide to cooking steaks, chops, chicken, fish, and more at

purchase equipment and debate weighty topics, like spatula versus meat fork, gas versus charcoal, the maximum number of beers to consume between the lighting of the fire and the first flip, and what to do with a burger that falls on the ground. (My two cents: fork; charcoal; two; and wipe it off, toss it back on the grill, and let the fire take care of the dirt.) In Dallas, where I live, grilling is so popular that on Saturday nights, steak smoke hangs over the city like storm clouds. Some men show up at parties towing their own setups behind them on trailers. Their tricked-out grills sport four or five surfaces so that the cook can stand in one spot and simultaneously sear meat, fish, and vegetables.

me from the kitchen window as I manned the grill outside. On my watch, a once-juicy tenderloin had begun to resemble the scorched remains of a prairie fire. A few minutes later, she came out and gently removed the meat fork from my shaking, flame-scarred hand. “It’s okay, honey,” she said. “You’re still a man in other ways.” I recently visited Fearing to confess my grilling shortcomings and to get some help. After he stopped laughing, he gave me a few tips for this July 4th weekend. One critical step that many men overlook in their rush to fan the flames: seasoning. Prior to cooking, create a savory blend of sea salt, freshly ground black and red pepper, spices, and herbs. Then pour the mixture “like thick falling snow over every bit of the meat,” he advised. “Never, ever do a puny little sprinkle.” “And if I still fail, then what?” I asked. “Will you be at your restaurant?” “No,” he replied; after all, it’s a holiday weekend. He’ll be busy doing what he always does when he’s off duty—standing in his yard, pouring briquettes into a cast-iron grill that looks a lot like the one he first used with Dad back in Kentucky, and cooking up a feast for his loved ones. “Grilling’s an addiction,” he sighed. “A beautiful addiction.”


“It’s that rare moment when a man gets to embrace his caveman instincts.”

nd woe to any Dallas man whose idea of grilling is to toss several pieces of marinated chicken onto the flames, walk away, and return 10 minutes later to check on them. When I did so in the presence of friends, one of them remarked that I clearly did not possess the valued “G” gene (for grilling)—a devastating insult for a Dallas male, second only to being called a disloyal Cowboys fan. Another evening, in one of the most humiliating experiences of my adult life, I noticed my wife sorrowfully staring at

SRAM is used in many computers, smart phones, PDAs and other electronic devices Para una notificación en español, llamar o visitar nuestro website A federal court certified a nationwide settlement class of individuals and companies that purchased SRAM indirectly from one or more Defendants (the “Settlement Class”). Defendants are corporations that indirectly sold SRAM to customers in the United States. For a full list of the defendants, visit the website below. The case is In Re Static Random Access Memory (SRAM) Antitrust Litigation, No. 4:07-md-1819 CW in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. What is the Class Action About? Plaintiffs claim that the Defendants conspired to fix, raise, maintain or stabilize prices of SRAM in violation of antitrust, unfair competition and unjust enrichment laws, resulting in overcharges to customers who indirectly purchased SRAM. Defendants deny that they did anything wrong. The court has not decided who is right. Defendants Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., Samsung Electronics America, Inc. and Samsung Semiconductor, Inc. and Defendant Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (the “Settling Defendants”) have agreed to settle with Plaintiffs; they continue to deny liability, but settled to avoid litigation expense and risk. Who’s Included? You are a member of the Settlement Class and could get benefits if you indirectly purchased SRAM from one of the Defendants in the United States during the period November 1, 1996 through December 31, 2006. SRAM is a memory part or module that is sold by itself or as a part in electronic devices. What Does the Settlement Provide? The Settling Defendants have agreed to pay a total of $15,900,000. Copies of the Settlement Agreements are available at the website below. In 2010, the Court approved settlements with other defendants that total $25,422,000 (the “2010 Settlements”); those settlements are now final and binding on the Settlement Class. How Will the Money Be Distributed? The total Settlement Fund from all settlements is $41,322,000. The Settlement Class includes indirect purchasers of SRAM that resold Defendants’ SRAM (“Resellers”), as well as indirect purchasers of Defendants’ SRAM that purchased it for their own use and not for resale (“End Users”). The Net Settlement Fund (the Settlement Fund minus court-approved costs, attorneys’ fees and incentive awards), will be distributed as follows: (1) 36.7% of the Net Settlement Fund will distributed to qualified Resellers through a court-approved claims process; and (2) 63.3% of the Net Settlement Fund will be distributed via a courtapproved cy pres plan to non-profit charities for the benefit of End Users. The cy pres portion of the distribution plan is due to the high cost of processing claims and making direct cash distributions to many thousands of potential claimants relative to the average likely award to those claimants. Under the cy pres plan of distribution, payments will not be made to individual class members; instead, that portion of the Net Settlement Fund will be distributed to court-approved non-profit charities. Go to the website below to see the distribution plan details or the proposed list of non-profit charities. Unclaimed funds from the Reseller claims process, if any, will be added to the cy pres distribution. Class Counsel will request attorneys’ fees in the amount of one-third of the Settlement Fund, reimbursement of their costs and expenses, and incentive payments for the court-appointed class representatives. The attorneys’ fees application shall be filed by August 1, 2011, and will be posted on the case website. Who Represents You? The Court has appointed Zelle Hofmann Voelbel & Mason LLP as Class Counsel. You do not have to pay these lawyers to represent you. You may hire your own attorney, if you wish; however, you will be responsible for your own attorney’s fees and expenses. What Are Your Options? If you do not want to be a part of the Settlement Class or legally bound by the Samsung and Cypress settlements, you must exclude yourself from the Settlement Class. You may not exclude yourself from the 2010 Settlements. To exclude yourself from the Settlement Class, you must do so in writing, postmarked no later than August 25, 2011. The Court has scheduled a Fairness Hearing for October 6, 2011 and will consider whether to approve the proposed settlements, distribution plan and requests for attorneys’ fees, costs and incentive payments. This date may change without further notice. Any new hearing date or time will be posted on the website below. You may object to or comment on any part of the proposed settlement. Your objection/comment must be filed with the Court by August 25, 2011. You may also request in writing to speak at the Final Approval Hearing. If you are a Reseller and want to make a claim, or for more information, you may 1) write to SRAM Indirect Litigation, P.O. Box 8090, San Rafael, CA 94912, 2) call the toll free phone number or 3) visit the website below

A Grand Old Flag An Ohio grandmother still treasures the Stars and Stripes her mother hand-sewed 66 years ago, in defiance of the Nazis


he vibrant

colors of this American flag faded long ago to soft rust, cream, and lavender. But the memory of the young mother who displayed it in an act of defiance still burns bright for Hendrika Haven. There are moments a daughter never forgets. “Call me Ricky,” she says, shortly after we meet. “That’s what my friends call me.” Everyone is Ricky’s friend. She insists on it. “That’s what it means to be an American. Nobody is a stranger.” To understand why this 82-year-old Ohio grandmother feels so strongly about her country and her

flag, we must travel back to when she was a girl in the Netherlands during the Nazi occupation. Her mother, Joanna “Ann” Dzula Toet, was an American, and her father, William “Wim” Toet, was Dutch; the two met when he was working in the States. Haven was born in the U.S. but lived here with her mom for only seven months before they moved to the Netherlands to rejoin her dad. Begin-

ning in 1930, the Toets ran a pension in The Hague with suites for guests, many of them Americans. “Shell Oil Company had its headquarters down the street. Ours was a popular place for Americans to stay because we spoke English,” Haven says. Everything changed on May 10, 1940, when the Germans invaded. Haven’s family immediately stopped speaking English. It was dangerous to be American. Haven, who was 11, and her family were forced to evacuate the pension; they took up residence in a nearby home. Her brother was born during the Hongerwinter, or Hunger Winter, when famine killed over 18,000 Dutch citizens. “It was a time of great suffering, but we were luckier than many,” Haven recalls. “You’d lie awake at night and hear the sounds of V-1’s [guided missiles]. Our home wasn’t hit, but a bomb fell on my grandmother’s house.” Many of Haven’s days were spent scavenging for firewood. “I would take the baby buggy,” she says. “I’d chop down trees and put the wood in the buggy and cover it with a blanket.”

She was 15 when the occupation ended, in the spring of 1945. On the day the city was liberated, her mother unfurled an American flag a guest had left behind and hung it outside. Haven will never forget what happened next. “A German soldier stopped at our house, broke the flag pole, and set the flag on re,” she says. Her parents were furious.Wim posted a wooden board by the incinerated flag and wrote on it “The last German insult.” Ann vowed, “There will be another flag,” and rushed to the store. “Dye was about the only thing left to buy,” Haven says. She and her mother dyed bed sheets red and blue and cut them into strips. Ann and a friend stayed up all night stitching a new U.S. flag. At dawn, she draped it outside their window. After the war, Haven returned to America, where she went on to attend a small college in Iowa. The daughter of Ann and Wim is now a grandmother, but her eyes telegraph the joy of a child’s as she recounts the story of the flag, which she keeps in a display on top of her refrigerator. “This flag reminds me of a time when we were occupied, and then we were free,” she says, gently refolding it. “The America that freed us is an America that’s inclusive.” She shakes her head and smiles. “You know, some people, they say you should never burn the flag. But you won’t destroy my ideas about America by setting the flag on fire.” Haven stares at the faded triangle. “The American flag is not a weapon,” she says. “The American flag is a promise.” Visit us at PARADE.COM
