A Message from Founder, Cynthia Brian
Although February is normally the wettest, coldest, most wintery month of our year, it is also a time to share the love. Here at Be the Star You Are!® we are gearing up for spring activities and seeking sponsors for our events.
 
We are very proud of the success and outreach of our two affirmative radio programs. Broadcasting LIVE since 1998, our upbeat, positive lifestyle radio program, StarStyle®-Be the Star You Are!® brings innovative information and inspiration to the masses every Wednesday from 4-5pm PT/7-8pm ET on the Voice America Network, Empowerment Channel.  
Liz Auilar
Our young adult radio broadcast, Express Yourself!~™, showcases the talents of tweens, teens, and young adults with fascinating guests and themes that are pertinent to millennials.  Listen to an original show Tuesdays at NOON PT.

We would love to showcase your company, service, or expertise on either of our shows through a sponsorship collaboration. Please email me for information Cynthia@BetheStarYouAre.org.

Together with the hosts and reporters on Express Yourself1™, we are excited to announce that we are working on our third book in the Be the Star You Are!® series., with a working title of Be the Star You Are!® for Millennials-How to Positively Express Yourself in the New Digital Age. Our book will be published by Waterside Productions sometime later this year.

In the meantime, you’ll want to pick up first edition autographed copies of our other books, Be the Star You Are!® 99 Gifts for Living, Loving, Laughing, and Learning to Make a Difference and Be the Star You Are!® for TEENS, Simple Gifts for Living Loving, Laughing, Learning, and Leading at our store. Case discounts available.
http://www.StarStyleRadio.com/store  All proceeds from sales benefit the programs of Be the Star You Are!®.

With the April 15 tax day nearing, remember you can still make tax deductible donations to Be the Star You Are!® I much prefer to donate to this charity where I know the money is making a difference to increase literacy and provide positive media and message entertainment than to give my extra dollars to Uncle Sam. Donate by check to PO Box 376, Moraga, Ca. 94556 or directly on-line through PAYPAL where 100% benefits the charity with no fees attached. https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/search-cause?charityId=1504&s=3

Stay warm, dry, and in touch with us. We send you gratitude and lots of love.

An Update From Public Relations Intern Liz Aguilar
After New Years Day, I left for my next great adventure in Nicaragua – the land of lakes and volcanoes! I spent my January Term leading a service trip to a rural village called Zacataloza in the northern mountainous jungle. Our service team spent three weeks building a school for local children and learning more about their culture. As a reflections leader I was able to help my team reflect on their privilege, service, and desire to continue participating in civic engagement even after the trip. Overall, the experience was extremely rewarding, we finished building the school for Zacataloza, and we continued to explore different regions in the country. 

Now that I’m back at DePauw University finishing the remainder of my studies, I can’t help but reflect on how meaningful all of my experiences were abroad. I plan to continue working as an intern for student off campus study to try and help students pursue incredible opportunities that will help them grow. But for now – here’s some beautiful pictures of the last of my 10 month journey off-campus!

The Power of Example

by Karen Kitchel

We often don’t realize the power we have simply by being a good example to others with our words and actions.  We may think a lot of good thoughts about others, but don’t always take a moment to express them.  Need some ideas?
* Tell a child who is waiting in line “I like your smile”
*  Make someone’s day by simply saying “Beautiful dress or nice shirt”
*  Ask your waitperson at a restaurant to tell the cook “I really enjoyed the ___________”
* Tell someone “That color looks good on you”
*  While at the gym, reinforce someone who’s working out  “Wish I could do what you do”
*  Send a reminder to a friend who lost someone “Thinking of you because you are special to me”
You will never know how you may have inspired someone to pass on compliments to others all because of the power of your example.

Rock Against Trafficking Event Live with VoiceAmerica

Capture2

MUSICIANS UNITE TO END HUMAN TRAFFICKING, JOIN VOICEAMERICA LIVE FEB. 8TH 7Pm-11Pm

Rock Against Trafficking is a non-profit organization registered with the Internal Revenue Service of the United States under Section 501c3. It’s simple mission is to amplify the power of music to generate the awareness and resources necessary to end human trafficking.
Human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal enterprise on earth. That such an enterprise would be tolerated at all is amazing but for it to be the fastest growing enterprise demands a call to action. Under the leadership of Gary Miller, many classic and legendary stars have answered the call to offer their incredible voices to end human trafficking.

After two years of painstaking effort, legendary and global superstars have come together to cover songs by Sting & The Police to raise money to fight the scourge of human trafficking. The album will be entitled Set Them Free.
The organization is based in Malibu and is dedicated to building partnerships with other human trafficking charities to distribute the proceeds of album sales to the rescue, recovery and rehabilitation of human trafficking victims.

Season’s Greetings By Cynthia Brian

Season’s Greetings By Cynthia Brian

“Winter is in my head, but eternal spring is in my heart!” Victor Hugo
Season's Greenings

The festivities of holidays are almost over, winter has arrived, and our hills are once again the lush emerald that we, and the cattle adore.  Congratulate yourself on a year well-spent growing your own food and tending to your plants. Now it is time to put your gardens to bed and give yourself a bit of respite. With the colder weather, we are fortunate that lemons, grapefruit, and tangelos are ripe to help us stay healthy.
ferns-sword.jpg
There is still time to plant bulbs through the end of January for a late spring show. All bulbs need well-drained soil, full sun, or partial shade. Avoid planting in soggy soils where the bulbs will rot. Instead of lining bulbs up in a row, scatter them in clusters for a more natural look. Since deer, squirrels, raccoons, and rabbits enjoy eating many bulb flowers, experiment with planting narcissus cultivars, snowflakes, and snow drops (galanthus) as these repel the critters with their toxicity.
rubber plant with kalanchoe blooming
Speaking of critters, our readers enjoyed the article on keeping unwanted guests from taking refuge in homes. From the response, it is apparent that this season of green has indeed brought the rodents to our doorsteps in increasing numbers. Excellent advice came to me from Jenny Papka of Native Bird Connections. With her permission, I am printing her edited suggestions here:
“What you term as “vermin” actually misleads people, since rodents, skunks, wasps and even mosquitoes are necessary in Nature. Yes they are annoying in many cases, but it is important to be respectful of why they can actually be good. Rodents are like chocolate for almost all young wild animals, and often are a life-long food source for many. The advice given about getting rid of ivy, etc is helpful, yet other animals will also be impacted. For example, Barn owls nest in palm trees, especially the dead frond areas just under the green crown. Barn owls are the BEST rodent controllers around and other than applauding their presence we do not have to do anything. Obviously we don’t want rodents inside our houses or out buildings, yet annihilation is not ideal for anyone. The advice listed is excellent particularly about what we are responsible for doing around our houses.
wild fushcia
In Contra Costa County, skunks are officially considered rabies vectors. This is NOT true in other counties. Obviously caution should always be utilized but seeing a skunk, even in the daytime, does not automatically indicate that it is sick. Skunks are omnivores and will eat many of the bothersome creatures we dislike, snails, slugs, rodents, fruit, and yellow jacket larvae. Skunks look for mates in early spring (Feb usually) otherwise they are solitary and crepuscular. So most of the year they are not obvious. This year is a “rebound year” as well, especially for rodents since last year was so dry. The rain this year promises more grass/food so rodents are producing large families. Information and education really increases tolerance and better, more humane choices. Thank you for a good article.”
Garden gnomes

Jenny also mentioned that it is illegal (and inhumane) to trap and relocate any wildlife. She also does not suggest acquiring cats as rodent control because cats are responsible for the deaths of millions of birds daily, another contentious subject.
geranium
Other ways to eliminate the rodents is to install barn owl boxes to encourage owls to your yard. Areas with heavy Great horned owl presence usually will not support barn owl populations (Great horned eat barn owls) but any owl is good for rodent control. Native Bird Connections has boxes available at Wild Birds Unlimited in Pleasant Hill for a $100 donation. Also of importance is to not use the sticky traps as they can entangle other animals creating suffering and a lingering death. Ninety percent of wildlife in the San Francisco Bay Area has rodenticides in their tissues including coyotes, bobcats, and foxes according to WildCare in Marin. This means that the use of poisons for all applications move through the food chain and should be avoided. My advice is to contact Vector Control at 925-771-6142 or visit www.ContraCostaMosquito.com when you have questions or concerns.

Cynthia Brian’s January New Year Gardening Tips:

⎫ BRING health inside with power plants of ferns, palms, spider plants, and other air-cleansing specimens. Tropical houseplants absorb indoor toxins and add humidity to the air saving you dollars on heating.
⎫ BUY a copy of “Great Garden Quotes”, a coloring book with wit, wisdom, and heart from the editors of GreenPrints, the Weeders Digest. Pat Stone, the editor, was a co-author with me on Chicken Soup for the Gardener’s Soul. You’ll love this new coloring book with inspiring garden axioms. www.GreenPrints.com
⎫ ALLOW the organic matter of chopped leaves and lawn clippings to decompose on the soil during the dormant season.
⎫ ADD a cover crop to keep soil healthy, avoid erosion, and help with fertility.
⎫ PICK Meyer lemons and use for juicing, cooking, and baking. This rich citrus will help fend off colds.
⎫ PROTECT tender plants from frost by covering with burlap or cloth. Do not use plastic as it will maximize the freeze.
⎫ PRUNING for dormant fruit trees and shrubs begins this month.
⎫ TIDY your yard by cutting back your chrysanthemums to six inches above the ground, and removing dead foliage from plants.
⎫ SPRAY your peach trees with a concoction of fixed copper or lime sulfur after all the leaves have fallen from the tree to control peach leaf curl. Repeat this process in late January and February for best results.
⎫ PLANT bareroot stock such as grapes, berries, artichokes, roses, and several fruit trees.
⎫ PRUNE roses, vines, and berry bushes to encourage new growth.
⎫ CUT bouquets of geranium flowers for indoors and snip pieces to plant in other areas.
⎫ DONATE $100 to Native Bird Connections and receive an owl box for your garden.
⎫ REMOVE all ornaments, lights, and tinsel from your Christmas trees before placing on the curb for composting pick-up.
⎫ EXPRESS gratitude for all the green that nature is bestowing on us!

“You haven’t learned how to live until you’ve learned how to give!” Kirk Douglas Gratitude from Founder, Cynthia Brian. The rains have begun and Northern California is drinking in deeply! How grateful we are for this precipitation as another year of drought could devastate our beautiful state and its farming communities. Thanksgiving is a time to express our appreciation for all of our blessings and challenges. Serving as Executive Director of Be the Star You Are!® is a gift from my heart and I thank all of you who have so generously supported our programs and outreach services with your time, your energy, your expertise, and your dollars. In our 16th year as a 501c3, we are celebrating many milestones and thrilled to be honored again as a Top Non Profit. On November 21st, our teen radio show, Express Yourself!™ rejoiced to be broadcasting three years. What began with only five teen reporters has grown to thirty from around the United States. Read about our teens and watch an inspiring video from host, Henna Hundal, as she talks about how being part of Be the Star You Are!®’s radio team has changed her life.

This past week, the Moraga Chamber of Commerce honored Be the Star You Are!® by selecting us as its charity of choice for holiday contributions. We want to say THANK YOU to the Moraga Chamber for choosing Be the Star You Are!® and hope that other businesses, chambers, and organizations will also consider choosing BTSYA as our goal is to grow leaders. We are so thankful to be able to use these fundsnot only to continue our two wonderful radio programs, but to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate with our gift of new books. We have been busy packing boxes to donate to Spark of Love, Los Angeles Fire Department, Toys for Tots, Moraga Fire Department, Children’s Hospital, and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. Speaking of new books, for the first time ever, we are discounting three of our signature books to only $9.99 plus $6.00 shipping through December 31 and hope that you’ll purchase several copies for everyone on your holiday list.
