It’s that time of year! The first leaves are beginning to fall and the nights are cool. I love this time of year. Besides being my ‘birthday month,’ this time of year brings back happy memories of attending fairs and hitting all those rides. I find this time of year to be almost like a closure offering a new beginning. Let’s hope that the next few weeks will be a new beginning of bright sunny warm days and endless blue skies and not so much rain!

The following parable (author unknown) shares the story of a school for animals: The school was to include classes in swimming, climbing, flying and running. All the animals were required to take all of the classes. The duck was good in swimming and he was pretty fair in flying, but he was just terrible in running. As a result, the duck was forced to drop his swimming class and stay after school so he could practice his running. He kept this up until he was only average in swimming but average was okay, and that was acceptable, and the others were no longer threatened by his swimming abilities. Everyone felt more comfortable, except the duck. The eagle was somewhat of a problem student from the very beginning. In climbing, the eagle beat everyone to the top of the tree, but did it in her own way. She flatly refused to climb the tree and had to be severely disciplined. She was so uncooperative in swimming classes that she finally had to be kicked out of the class. The rabbit started at the top of the class in running, but was obviously not up to speed in other areas. In fact, the rabbit almost broke its leg trying to fly by using its ears as wings. The rabbit had so much make-up work to do in swimming that it had a nervous breakdown and had to drop out. Sadly, the turtle was a failure in almost everything. The turtle’s shell was considered to be the primary cause of this dismal performance, so it was removed. This helped the turtle’s running a bit, but unfortunately, it became the first casualty of the school when stepped on by the horse. By the end of the school year, there were no real successes. It seemed that all the animals were either average, sick, or dead. God has given each one of us certain gifts and abilities, certain strengths and weaknesses. The question becomes which do we focus our efforts on, fixing our weaknesses or developing our strengths? Without doubt, there are some life skills that are important to become competent in – and if we find we are weak in those skills – we should make an effort to improve. Yet, as the parable teaches us – if we primarily focus on fixing our weaknesses – we may end up wasting the strengths God has given us to be used for His glory! Make today the day you spend some time working to develop your strengths! God has creatively designed you with those strengths. Thank God for them! Use them!

7 Fall Fashion Trends Provided by Jan Howery

The new fall fashion trends are offering a wide range of styles to fit your fashion style, taste and lifestyle. Jeans, boots and leggings are still around for this season, so forget those age appropriate definitions that do not allow you to be creative! Create your own versions of the season’s trends and add your own personal signature to these trends.

1. Patchwork, especially denim: This comfortable, easy-to-maintain fabric is showing up in many guises in the autumn collections. Clothes will feature such combinations as saturated indigo, destroyed denim and washed denim, all in one garment.

Casual & Formal Wear Madewell

2. Bold Outerwear: Outerwear will be making a splash this fall, whether in materials like fur, faux fur or feathers. You will also see statement-making cuts, such as oversized parkas, capes and colorful bomber jackets.

3. Houndstooth and Other Classic Prints: Fall collections are touting houndstooth, whether in its standard size, more modern larger sizes or slightly altered shapes. Think of houndstooth as a neutral that goes with almost anything and can be dressed up, as in evening wear, or dressed down.

4. Animal Prints: Leopard is back again, in both the expected browns and in colors like pink and red. You'll also see leopard print on oversized pieces, in larger dimensions and in handbags. 5. Emerald and Khaki Green: Greens in general are on trend for fall, especially emerald, which goes well with other jewel tones like amethyst, sapphire and garnet. Accessories such as jewelry, scarves, handbags and shoes are great ways to add pops of emerald to fall outfits. Khaki and loden green (dark olive green) also appear in military styles and the army surplus look. 6. Peplums: Peplums are figure-flattering and stylish and are showing up in the fall. A peplum is a flared ruffle attached to the waistline of a dress, jacket or blouse. The peplum has been popular a few times in fashion history including Elizabethan times and the 1980’s. Today brings a new resurgence of the peplum.

Kingsport author releases book that sheds light on illiteracy with Christian compassion Leigh Anne W. Hoover is the author of the well-known children's book The Santa Train Tradition and the awardwinning Festus and His Fun Fest Favorites. Now, she has a new adult Christian book that sheds a light on illiteracy and also shares God's love. In Reading with Ralph — A Journey in Christian Compassion, you will discover the bond of friendship with an unsuspecting relationship developed through reading. You will laugh, and you will cry as Leigh Anne introduces you to Ralph. Through their story, you will also discover God's strength and Leigh Anne W. Hoover His prevailing love and grace. “Ralph is my adult reading student at the Literacy Council READING with RALPH of Kingsport, Inc.,” said Hoover. “We are in our seventh year A Journey in working together weekly, and Ralph is also a member of our Christian Compassion church and Sunday school class at First Broad Street United Methodist Church in Kingsport. Without a doubt, I believe that Ralph was put in my path. In fact, when Ralph learned that I was writing a book about him, he replied, ‘This book is not about me. It's about God.’” While the story of Ralph shows God’s strength and His prevailing love and grace, it is more about the importance of literacy, a cause near and dear to Leigh Anne. When Ralph Buck came to the Literacy Council of Kingsport, he was at a first grade reading level. Today, through dedication and determination, he is above a sixth grade level and continues to improve. As for many new literates, reading has opened a new world for Ralph. He has a new sense of freedom and independence, which has also given him increased confidence. A portion of the proceeds from Reading with Ralph — A Journey of Christian Compassion will go towards the Literacy Consignment Home Furnishings Council of Kingsport, Inc. located in Kingsport, Tennessee. Leigh Anne is a native of South Carolina and graduate of Clemson University. Reading with Ralph — A Journey of Christian Compassion is endorsed by Dabo Swinney, head football coach of Clemson University and Jim Barker, President of Clemson University. The book also contains a foreword by Dr. Robert Laubach. Visit Leigh Anne W. Hoover on Facebook or her website, www.thesantatraintradition.com. According to the U. S. Department of Education, National Institute of Literacy, 32 million U.S. adults cannot read. Illiterate adults are not able to complete job applications, read road signs, cooking directions or even instructions for taking medications. As a nation, illiteracy leads to unemployment, poverty, homelessness, crime and so many other woes. The Literacy Council of Kingsport, Incorporated is a program of the United Way of Greater Kingsport, which has recently identified early grade reading as the number one cause of community service and human health needs and is serving to remedy this situation in our region. The Kingsport-Times News is planning a September 8 feature on International Literacy Day. Also, Leigh Anne has been invited to the “United, We Read” kickoff with First Lady Crissy Haslam on September 12. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book benefits the Literacy Council of Kingsport, Inc.

Barlow Gin and the Hatchetmen By Cathy Loosbrock

S

tart with lead singer Kat Rush, who loves the 1940’s, add a large dollop of jazz and mix it well with good old fashioned rock and roll, and you end up with the unique sound of Barlow Gin and the Hatchetmen. Originally from Austin, Texas, and now a local Bristol resident, Kat initially was around a very large diverse group of music. She admits being “a little frustrated with music in our area. There is a ton of talent, but it is very heavily concentrated in certain genres. I thought, yeah, I want to try something different.” “I grew up in musical theater and was basically trained from an early age how to sing in different genres,” she explained. “I could do a show that was a rock opera, then do musical theater with a Latin flare, followed by something similar to classic opera, and also be able to perform rockabilly.” Kat continued, “With all the shows I have done, I have some favorites. And I learned really quickly that one of my favorite genres I discovered was jazz. A lot of people hear the word ‘jazz’ and they think it’s horrible. But when I think of jazz, I think of 1930’s and 1940’s; a smoky speakeasy with the vaudeville brass sound. It was a time where men are men with hats and women are women with gloves and I just loved that. I loved that music. And I loved that style. But I also really love the rockabilly music from the 1950’s, original authentic rock and roll. Really cool rhythms where the interesting part of the music is in the rhythm and the vocal melodies are very simple. I wanted to blend those two styles together. And nobody else was doing it.” Barlow Gin and the Hatchetmen originally started about 3 years ago with Kat and her rhythm player, Mack Partain, and they’ve also toured with Rory Orbinson. Today, the band has grown to include Mary Munsey on keyboard, saxophone and vocals; Bill Bass on bass, Justin Camacho on trumpet, flugel, coronet and harmonica; Lee Gouge on lead guitar; and Bob Ballengee on percussions. The band’s name has roots in terminology from the 1940’s. Kat explains, “Barlow was one of the terms that they called women back then. Like ‘hens’ or ‘chickens’, Barlow is part of that. Gin actually has a personal history….no I am not an alcoholic,” she says with a laugh. “My best friend wrote a fantasy book many years ago when we were in high school. One of the characters in the book was modeled after me and the character’s name was Ginsyn, so Gin has always been synonymous with me. The Hatchetmen is a 1940 term also. That’s what they used to call the muscle, the guys that protected. They were basically bouncers.” So, what is their style? Kat says they call their style ‘Jazzabilly.’ “We kind of coined our own term because there’s not anything out there for us to call it. It is hard to explain it. I have to ask people just to give it a chance. People love it once they hear it. You can’t pigeonhole it. We pull influences

from jazz, rock and roll, blues music and Americana. We pull things from all different styles and kind of make it our own. And we have fun doing it. We have kids dancing, grandma and grandpa dancing, and it is really cool. The music transcends generations. We wanted something that everyone can enjoy and at the same time we are introducing people to something new that they wouldn’t have otherwise listened to.” The band practices together once a week for about 4 to 6 hours. In addition, time is spent writing songs, writing music, answering emails, promoting the band on Facebook and Twitter, as well as doing merchandise and taking pictures. Kat admits “it’s a second job” but she’s also quick to add that it is very much a labor of love for all of the band mates. Kat says they perform about twice a month. She explains, “We all have real jobs and real lives. We take it seriously and we want to be professional. It is a business we love doing but we’re at an age where we don’t want to tour all over the country playing. We are selective about our shows. In the past, we’ve played DC, Richmond, Charlotte, and Asheville and we’ve been offered to play in Nashville but not sure that we’ll take that right now. There are a lot of kinks to be worked out for us to do that. And Mack and I have played with Mumford and Sons, Justin Townes Earle and Apache Relay.” The band plans to take some time off from doing shows in the months of October and November to work on their first album. “We are going to work in the studio so that we can get our album out. We’ve kind of felt like we haven’t had the opportunity to do it yet. We’ve been playing so many shows that we’ve tried to focus on those shows. We didn’t want to take the focus away from the performing for live people in order to work in a studio just to get an album out there. We didn’t want to cut anybody short.” What’s next? “On September 7 at O’Mainnin’s Pub in Bristol, we will have a very big show with national recording artist Brownbird Rudy Relic. I am super excited to be playing with him. He’s really unique.” Barlow Gin and the Hatchetmen will be a part of Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion this year. They will perform on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 11:00 a.m. on the State Street stage; at 8:15 p.m. at O’Mainnin’s Pub and on Sunday, Sept. 22 at 4:00 p.m. at Borderline Billards.

Made FOR the Shade One trend in “green” building products and which pairs well with the energy saving benefits is the resurge of awnings. Awning products provide shade features, such as overhangs, and can also balance the effects of the building’s structure. More than just a decorative accessory to adorn the outside of the building, architects and designers are incorporating awnings, canopies and other shade structures into building plans with durable fabrics and weather resistant materials. Some of those advancements include the development of self-cleaning awnings and canopies, and durable fabrics for awnings from natural fibers, such as coconut shell, hemp, corn, bamboo and—perhaps some time in the future—even fungus. Modern design, cutting and fabric welding equipment have enabled the awning and canopy industry to create unique, attractive and attentiongetting awnings and canopies. Canopies have been used over entryways on hotels, apartment buildings, hospitals and office complexes as offering shelter from the elements. Now canopies are being recognized for this same reason and more in residential construction. With the addition of graphics, styles, colors and uses, many homeowners are finding that awnings and canopies have an almost unlimited palette for their ideas. With the modern age fabrics, awnings and canopies can offer year-round shade and sun protection, and provide reliable covering during rain and snow showers. Added to the modern age fabrics are advanced home-control devices, which employ wireless radio technology, making installation quick, easy and cost effective.These features include sun and motion sensors, anemometer (measures wind speed so that retracting awnings are retracted when speed exceeds preset thresholds), timers, remote controls and combination sensors. Awnings with high-tech sensors and controls make it easier than ever for homeowners to optimize their benefits. More developments are already being commercialized, assuring that well into the future fabric awning and canopy manufacturers and their suppliers will have significant and compelling new options to offer their customers both commercially and residentially.

September is Skin Care Awareness Month Drink Water – Drinking water is imperative for beautiful skin. Water purifies and feeds the body at a cellular level. In fact, 70% of all every cell is water. As a result, the skin of those who do not drink enough H2O will thin prematurely, with thin skin prone to signs of age like dark circles, fine lines, sagging and flakiness. Good Diet – It is believed that maintaining a healthy diet is essential to skin health. Be sure to load up with nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables! Sleep the wrinkles away – You can sleep your way to a better complexion. Regularly going without your recommended eight hours of sleep will leave you looking as tired as you feel. Remove your makeup – Sleeping with makeup on results in tired-looking skin, and doing so causes the skin’s natural oil – sebum – to build up. Sebum release helps to keep dirt out of pores but makeup interferes with the process, causing blocked pores, spots and a tired aesthetic. Stress is an ageing factor – The skin of stressed individuals is usually more sensitive than that of calm counterparts. More significantly, however, scowling and rubbing the eye area when anxious can reduce skin elasticity and deepen wrinkles as a result. Stress can also worsen dehydrating skin conditions such as psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis (important considering moisture-lacking skin ages more quickly). Moisturizing can help to reduce wrinkles by half – According to a recent study by the British Journal of Dermatology, dry skin wrinkles twice as fast as well-moisturized skin. Be sure to moisturize regularly, particularly after hot showers and baths – these can really dry out the skin and make it feel uncomfortably tight. Sources: spaseekers.com

Hand-selected works from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts will travel to Abingdon for this extraordinary exhibition.

The exhibition will be open to the public in the United-Legard Galleries on August 23 and run through January 5, 2014. William King museum will celebrate the opening of this exhibition on September 5, 2013 from 6-8 p.m. In coordination with the exhibition, several programs have been planned. On Saturday, October 19 from 1-5 p.m. there will be a Figure Drawing and Plein Air Watercolor Workshop.

One of my passions is cooking and to come together with these award winners and some of the best country cooks you can find has been a rare treat for me.” It's surprising that Stella even has time to think about cooking much less write a cookbook with her busy schedule—recently releasing a new single to radio, Tell it Sister, Tell It, filming a documentary about her life, the premiere of her new fragrance line, Virtue, and coordinating several film projects slated for later this year, not to mention her personal appearances!

September is Mushroom Month The Many Health Benefits of Mushrooms

Celebrate Coffee Day September 29

Coffee has a long history. The properties of coffee beans are thought to have first been discovered in Ethiopia. The beans are actually the pits found in the coffee berry or cherry. The story goes that a 9th century goat herder noticed their stimulating effects on his goats and began experimenting. Coffee drinking was originally popularized in the Arab world from around the 15th century spreading across Asia then to Italy and across Europe and to the Americas–and finally to your coffee cup. Whether you favor espresso, Americanos, lattes or cappuccinos; iced, decaf, instant or filter–Coffee Day is the day to savor and appreciate your beverage!

Benefits of Honey: • • • • • •

It boosts your immune system It helps you lose weight It reduces the risk of heart disease It soothes indigestion It bolsters your energy levels It clears up your skin

National Honey Month is a celebratory and promotional event held annually during the month of September. Its purpose is to promote US beekeeping, the beekeeping industry and honey as a natural and beneficial sweetener. Honey has been used since ancient times both as a food and as a medicine. Apiculture, the practice of beekeeping to produce honey, dates back to at least 700 BC. For many centuries, honey was regarded as sacred due to its wonderfully sweet properties as well as its rarity. It was used mainly in religious ceremonies to pay tribute to the gods, as well as to embalm the deceased. Honey was also used for a variety of medicinal and cosmetic purposes. For a long time in history, its use in cooking was reserved only for the wealthy since it was so expensive that only they could afford it. The prestige of honey continued for millennia until the “discovery” of refined sugar made from sugar cane or sugar beets. With their growing popularity, honey became displaced by sugar for culinary use. Since then, although honey is still used for sweetening, much of its use has become focused on its medicinal properties and its use in confectionary.

1. Weight management: Studies have indicated that substituting approximately one cup of mushrooms per day in place of meat can show improvements in body composition, such as reduced waist circumference, and ability to maintain weight loss. 2. Improved nutrition: Mushroom consumption was associated with better diet quality and improved nutrition. 3. Increasing vitamin D levels through your diet: Consuming dried white button mushroom extract was found to be as effective as taking supplemental vitamin D2 or D3 for increasing vitamin D levels. 4. Improved immune system function: eat mushrooms for breakfast, a snack, lunch and dinner!

Sipping Local: Seven Regional Grapes to Try By Crystal Robertson

Beyond personal tastes, it is difficult to debate whether one grape makes a better wine than another, and rightly so. Great wines can be made from each variety, and Appalachian-grown grapes are not excluded. Although drinking local wine means trying new and unusual grape varieties you may not have heard of, they are no less wonderful or complex. What is considered “great wine” is often based on personal preference, and tastes evolve gradually, one wine drinker at a time. Take a trip to a local winery and discover which hybrids and native varieties are best suited to our region. You may be surprised to find that your new favorite wine has no European heritage at all. Let’s look at a few less familiar grape varieties featured in local wines. Rkatsiteli (pronounced “rkah-tsee-tely”): Until the mid-1980s, this was the second most cultivated white wine grape in the world (almost all of which are in the former Soviet Union). Of Ukrainian origin, it is one of the most widely planted but also probably most obscure varieties in the world. Nevertheless, it has made its way right here to our region. In its homeland, it is made (alone or in blends) in a variety of styles characterized by high acidity and spicy and floral notes. Mountain Rose Winery in Wise, VA grows and produces this variety. Seyval blanc: One of the old French hybrids, seyval made dry and tart (and sometimes over-oaked) undistinguished white wine in the past. In the last decade, the grape has been re-invented by both growers and winemakers and the rewards are impressive. It produces delicate hints of citrus, grapefruit, acidity, and minerality. A great local substitute for New Zealand sauvignon blanc or pinot grigio from Italy. Traminette: A new hybrid from Cornell University, this thick-skinned, aromatic grape (a cross between gewürztraminer, pronounced “ge-verts-tra-meaner”, and a white French hybrid grape). The wine produced from this grape is more interesting than its parent: it is floral and fruity, spicy and smooth. Versatile as a blend or a semi-dry to sweet varietal, traminette has become the official grape of Indiana. Norton (aka Cynthiana): Originally from Virginia where it has been revived (either a deliberate or accidental hybrid), norton was taken west with settlers and the oldest vines are in Missouri, where it has been the backbone of the state’s red wine industry for 40 years. Norton is very dark, full of spicy plum flavors, low in tannin but with a fresh lively tart finish. Corey Ippolito Winery in Blountville, TN offers a couple styles of Cynthiana wines to try. Chambourcin: The most successful, geographically and stylistically diverse of the old red French hybrids, chambourcin is grown widely in the East. Bright red cherry fruit, dark color, and lively crisp acidity are its characteristics. Sometimes it

is blended with the darker toned norton for a fun blend with lively flavors and acidity. Chambourcin is a mellow wine which improves with bottle aging and stands up to any hearty dish. Muscadines: A species of grapes native to the Southeast, muscadines are intensely aromatic and fruity, but have the acidity to balance, and are always made with some sweetness. Muscadine is a beautiful golden colored wine with a sweet grape taste. It is very pleasant with apples, grapes, sharp cheddar cheese or just sipping. Niagara: A cross between the Concord and Cassady varieties. Niagara shares aromas similar to those of Concord, however it is possible to find some distinctly different tasting notes. Countryside Vineyards boasts marinating apples, grapes, peaches, and pears with Niagara for about an hour, then serving the compote with a glass of Niagara wine for an outstanding flavor combination. For more information on wineries in our area, go to www.rockytopwineries.com, www.tennesseewines.com, or www.virginiawine.org.

Red Sangria Sangria is a delicious fruit-based wine “punch” with its traditional heritage well rooted in Spain. Typically, sangrias are made with red wine, fresh, seasonal fruit and a bit of bubbly water or citrus flavored soda. It is easy to make, easy to drink and a huge hit at summer get togethers—even for those who are not “into wine.” The beauty of the basic Sangria recipe is that it is as delicious as it is easy, and it only gets better as you spice it up with your own tasty additions! Really, it is hard to add the “wrong” ingredient here, think favorite fruits, spice and liquors. Chill and enjoy! If you would like to turn things up a notch, then check out our Best Party Sangria topped with fresh or frozen raspberries. Total Time: 5 minutes Ingredients: 1 750 ml bottle of red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Rioja reds, Zinfandel, Shiraz) 1 lemon cut into wedges 1 orange cut into wedges 2 Tbsp sugar 1 shot brandy 2 cups ginger ale or club soda Preparation: Pour wine in the pitcher and squeeze the juice wedges from the lemon and orange into the wine. Toss in the fruit wedges (leaving out seeds if possible) and add sugar and brandy. Chill overnight. Add ginger ale or club soda just before serving. If you'd like to serve right away, use chilled red wine and serve over lots of ice. Addition ideas: sliced strawberries, diced peaches, a handful of fresh blueberries, raspberries, kiwi slices, a shot or two of gin, brandy or rum, a cup of ginger ale, citrus soda or fresh squeezed lime juice.

Just for ‘the men’ in your life! September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

Prostate cancer is cancer that occurs in a man's prostate — a small walnutshaped gland that produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm. Prostate cancer, one of the most common types of cancer in men, usually grows slowly and initially remains confined to the prostate gland, where it may not cause serious harm. However, other types are aggressive and can spread quickly. Prostate cancer that is detected early has a better chance of successful treatment.

Risk Factors:

Nutrition Response Testing We can help you regain your health!

• Age - Prostate cancer is most common in men older than 65. • Race - Black men have a greater risk of prostate cancer than do men of other races. • Genetics - Family history of prostate or breast cancer.

• DIGESTIVE DISORDERS • IBS

Young girls of the Appalachian Mountains had their dreams just like everyone else…simple dreams of marrying a good man, moving across the hill and raising a family.

When he asked her to be his bride, it seemed her dreams had come true, until she learned that Tom had a restlessness in him...and a roving eye.
