Courage in the Solomon Islands, 1943


“Hell, I claim no credit for it. I was a doctor — and any other doctor would have done the same... I didn’t want any medal for it.”

Evacuation route from Munda to San Cristobal

— Flight Surgeon Earl Conaway, Sr., on In the early morning of July 28, 1943, 32-year-old receiving the Legion of Merit medal for Captain Earl Conaway, a flight surgeon with the exceptionally meritorious service, 1944 801st Medical Air Transport Squadron, was asked on short notice to attend the 21 wounded men on an air hile waiting for a medical appointment ambulance flight from Guadalcanal to the island of San recently, I happened to notice a modest Cristobal, 150 miles to the east. No other doctor was plaque on the waiting room wall of Dr. Earl available. Dutifully, Captain Conaway boarded the E. “Ed” Conaway, Jr., in Cambridge. The plaque briefly Douglas C-47 transport plane where 10 of the wounded described the distinguished career of his late father, Dr. lay on stretchers, and 11 were still well enough to sit. Earl Conaway, Sr., including a few sentences about a One had a serious bullet wound to the head; another had remarkable incident that occurred during his service as compound fractures and multiple gunshots to the leg; a a flight surgeon in the South Pacific during World War II. serious chest wound was another patient’s problem. Dr. With thanks to the younger Dr. Conaway for providing Conaway attended them all. additional documents and details, herewith is the tale Shortly after taking off from Guadalcanal’s Henderson behind the elder doctor’s rare Legion of Merit award, a Field, the plane encountered a severe tropical storm front with driving rain, little visibility, and the worst story few of his patients may ever have known. In 1942, America began its Pacific island-hopping air turbulence the young doctor had ever experienced. campaign toward Japan by taking and, at high cost, Simply moving through the cabin was a challenge as the holding the island of Guadalcanal in the British plane bucked and jolted, the patients all becoming sicker.

Not that there is any good place to have a plane crash, but a rain forest at least provides vegetation and some relatively soft ground cover to cushion the impact. Dr. Conaway was thrown clear of the fuselage a distance of about 200 feet, landing and sliding on a thick wet slope of grass. Dazed only briefly, he found himself in pain with what at first he feared to be a broken back. But he wasn’t paralyzed, and he could stand. His left eye was swollen shut with a gash below it, and his left arm seemed either broken or dislocated, with limited motion. He heard the cries of other survivors farther up the slope and scrambled toward the part of the plane that was burning. He and others used a log to batter their

way into it, but the six inside were already dead from the fire. Of the remaining 21 other men on the plane many were still alive. Dr. Conaway was, at that point, the ranking officer who was still ambulatory, so he began to take charge of the situation. The plane’s navigator and radioman were in good enough condition to go down the mountain for help, so he quickly sent them out on that mission. Others who could walk helped him hunt for the missing. It took quite a while to find them all, scattered over several hundred yards of jungle. Some were badly burned. Others, as if their war wounds weren’t enough, Captain Earl Conaway, M.D. had new broken bones and internal injuries. The copilot had a bad head wound and a crushed arm, but was put to work trying to get an emergency radio from a life raft working.

found, near death, was the pilot. Three hours after the crash he was finally located, unconscious underneath a cockpit instrument panel. Most of the medical supplies had been lost in the crash and fire, except for one unit of blood plasma. Dr. Conaway used it to keep the pilot alive. Those patients who could be moved were brought together at a gathering point near the wreckage. The ones who could not move, Dr. Conaway treated in place. He improvised splints from blankets and parachute lines and gave morphine to some for pain. Amazingly, when all the men were finally accounted for, all 21 who had not perished in the fire were found to have survived the crash, though some were clearly dying. About an hour after the crash, a group of natives, having seen the fire on the mountain, arrived at the scene, led by a young man wearing only a loin cloth. He did not speak English. Fortunately, there was among them a boy of ten or twelve who did speak some English and was able to help interpret. The natives had come from a nearby village and were eager to help. They constructed a temporary shelter for some of the men and cut saplings for a stretcher Dr. Conaway was improvising out of parachute material. Shortly after the pilot was found, a Dutch missionary,

Now & Then • 6

whose station was farther down the mountain, arrived. The scouts originally sent out for help had found him. It was a relief to see the man, for he surely signified a means of contact with the outside world. Soon the trek down the mountain began. Six natives and six “walking wounded” accompanied Dr. Conaway and the pilot on a stretcher as they hacked their way through the jungle. Two natives swung machetes. Another carried equipment. The others rotated as stretcher bearers. It took three difficult hours to reach the missionary’s station. Ultimately, it took six more round trips for the native helpers to bring the rest of the injured down from the crash site, and some had to wait there through the jungle night. At the mission site there were two sisters and a New Zealander named Father Tom Parsonage, who worked tirelessly with Dr. Conaway to tend to all the patients and share what food they had, providing also a constant supply of tea. The next day a local doctor, a native trained in Fiji, arrived by motorboat with fresh medical supplies. He, in turn, helped get out a radio call to alert American authorities. Two days after the crash, sea planes arrived with supplies, equipment, and doctors. Only then was Dr.

Conaway able to relax and have his own injuries tended to. He had lost 25 pounds. Of the 21 men who survived the initial plane crash, only three had died on the mountain, all of them on the first night. A few days after the rescue was complete, Father Tom Parsonage wrote a letter addressed to “Commanding Officer, Guadalcanal,” in which he stated the following: “Last week it was our privilege to have here at our station some eighteen members of the U.S.A. Forces... survivors of a large Douglas plane which crashed at Rangobarate, a position on the mountains at the back of Wanoni Bay. We saw the grievous injuries the men suffered as the result of the crash, and the Sisters, my confrere and myself at Wanoni were in admiration at the courage and endurance of those men under such pain. It must have been excessive... They were true soldiers indeed. “But the conduct of one man was so outstanding that I feel compelled to make mention of the fact, and to congratulate sincerely the American forces for having such a fine type of man in a key position. The man I have in mind is Doctor Conaway of the American Army, who was travelling in the plane with the casualties from Munda. Dr. Conaway arrived here at our station at about midday on the day of the crash, accompanying one of the most seriously wounded, Lieutenant Brush. From the time of his arrival until some twenty-four hours later, when another doctor arrived, Dr. Conaway worked ceaselessly among the wounded men, cheerful and attentive to the smallest request made of him; this, despite the fact that he had received in the crash a serious wound under the left eye... partly blinding him, that his left arm was either dislocated or fractured, and that a spinal injury prevented him from bending his back. “His conduct was truly an example of courageous devotion to duty and many of the men owe their lives to his care. He was a credit to the American forces and to his profession. Please believe me, I in no way exaggerate; rather I fear my words are inadequate in the face of such conduct.” Eight months later, a war correspondent named Kenneth Green was watching an Army general award medals to a row of combat veterans from the Munda battles when he noticed the silver wings of a flight surgeon on one of the men and sensed a story. He interviewed Dr. Conaway and sent an article about his actions back to New York, a copy of which remained among Dr. Conaway’s papers. Whether the account was ever published stateside is not known. Most of this account, however, is drawn from that original document. Coincidentally, in a similar sort of story, five days after

the crash of Dr. Conaway’s C-47 plane, the torpedo boat of a young Navy lieutenant from Massachusetts was destroyed during night patrol a few miles off Munda Point. He led his surviving crew of ten other men, swimming, to a deserted island, and ultimately, days later, to rescue. Like Dr. Conaway, he, too, was awarded a prestigious non-combat medal in 1944 for having saved his crew. When asked how it was that he became a war hero, the lieutenant once demurred, “It was involuntary. They sank my boat.” And it’s not hard to imagine Dr. Conaway having likewise once answered, “It was involuntary. They crashed my plane.” He didn’t seek credit. It was just what doctors do, he felt. He rarely spoke of it after the war.

Dr. Conaway’s Legion of Merit medal, left. Kennedy’s Navy and Marine Corps medal, right.

The Navy lieutenant, of course, was John F. “Jack” Kennedy. The lingering legend of PT-109 helped propel him to the White House. After the war, Dr. Conaway returned to Cambridge, his home town, to practice family medicine for the rest of his life. One day Dr. Conaway’s son, about twelve years old, answered the doorbell and met a man looking for his father. He’d come to thank the doctor who helped save his life and those of others on a mountain long ago, in the war, following a plane crash. And that is how the future Dr. Earl “Ed” Conaway, Jr., first learned of this story himself! With Memorial Day coming up later this month, please give a thought to those in the past who have purchased our freedom in times of war — including men like Captain Earl and Lieutenant Jack, and their days of courage in the Solomon Islands.

ehicles rely on many components working harmoniously to function at optimal capacity. Any number of systems can go wrong, and oftentimes the first indication that something has gone awry is an illuminated dashboard signal. One such signal is the “check engine” light. Many drivers have little idea what to do when this indicator lights up, and this light can cause some anxiety. According to Consumer Reports, a check engine light turning on does not usually require immediate action. However, it does mean that you should make an appointment to have the vehicle inspected for potential problems. Check engine lights are part of a car’s onboard diagnostics. The light turning on may indicate something minor, such as a loose fuel cap, or something more serious like a misfiring engine. When the light turns on, drivers wondering why may want to see if the answer is related to one of the following issues. 1. Loose gas cap: Fuel vapors can leak out and air can get in when the fuel cap isn’t secured correctly. This can compromise the fuel system and make the check engine light come on. Take off the cap and then reseal it to see if that alleviates the problem. Cracked caps will need to be replaced. 2. Dirty oxygen sensor: A faulty or clogged sensor may not provide the right information about unburned oxygen from the vehicle’s exhaust. This sensor monitors how much fuel is burned. Compromised data can cause

a decrease in fuel efficiency. Some do-it-yourselfers can replace an oxygen sensor on their own, but those who can’t should have the issue addressed immediately by a professional. 3. Too much speed or load: Towing a trailer or another heavy item may put strain on the vehicle and cause the light to come on because of loss of power. Lightening the load and reducing speed can help fix the problem. Always consult with the owner’s manual to determine the towing capacity of your vehicle. 4. Short or faulty code: Computers aren’t always foolproof, and sometimes an electrical short or another similar problem can cause a light to come on. Bring the vehicle to an automotive supply store. Such stores typically have diagnostics tools that can be hooked into the car’s computer and provide a more detailed understanding of what is triggering the check engine indicator. In many cases, a steady check engine light is not a serious concern. However, when such a light comes on, drivers should try to find out why as soon as possible.

Recognizing The Barnesville Enterprise Story by CATHRYN STANLEY ENTERPRISE EDITOR


s the only remaining weekly newspaper in Belmont County and the oldest business in Barnesville operating under its original name, The Barnesville Enterprise marks the 150th anniversary of its founding in 1866 on May 28. Although the newspaper industry has changed immensely since George McClelland began The Enterprise, the community newspaper continues to, as E.P. Lee wrote upon assuming charge of the Enterprise from McClelland in 1883, “steer clear of political broils and party turmoils, believing that the reader of today cares little for the politics of the country editor, but is far more interested in what is actually taking place in his town

For twenty two years we have put our best work into its columns, striving always to keep it in the front as a moral and progressive newspaper, and also striving to keep it form wounding the feelings of those whom it had occasion to criticize. Its policy has been ‘charity to all, malice towards none’. We have aimed to publish a paper that would develop the better elements of human nature, and cause them to aspire to higher aims. We believe we have been moderately successful in this, and that the influence for good of the ENTERPRISE has been felt wherever it has circulated.

Practice Food Safety


armer temperatures lead to an increase in outdoor dining. Grillmasters anxiously wait to show off their skills while guests gravitate around the barbecue in the backyard. No matter the temperature outside or the size of the crowd around your dinner table, food safety is a concern whenever foods will be transported inside and outdoors or enjoyed in the fresh air. A survey conducted by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics found that, while most people realize the months of May through September are prime times for the threat of food poisoning, consumers still are not practicing correct outdoor food safety procedures. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says there are around 76 million cases of foodborne illnesses each year in the United States alone. Those involve hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations and thousands of

Safety around the grill Preparing foods involves avoiding cross-contamination between uncooked and cooked foods. That means switching utensils so that bacteria will not transfer from uncooked or partially cooked food to fully cooked food. Use a cooler to keep refrigerated foods cold until it’s time to put them on the grill if you’re cooking away from home, such as at a public picnic site. Otherwise, wait until the grill is hot and ready before bringing out foods that need to be cooked. Rely on a cooking thermometer to test the internal temperature of foods to ensure they reach temperatures that will kill bacteria or other pathogens. Hamburgers should reach 160 F and chicken breasts 165 F. When reheating fully cooked meats like hot dogs, grill to 165 F, or until steaming hot. Discard any unused marinades so that they do not contaminate cooked foods. Outdoor buffet tips Food also needs to be protected once it is served. Use ice or coolers to keep cold salads and condiments at at least 40 F. Foods should not remain outside in hot weather of 90 F or above for more than one hour. The maximum time food should be kept sitting out is two hours, says the USDA. Keep hands and utensils clean at all times. This way you do not transfer any germs onto safe foods. If a fresh water source is unavailable, keep hand wipes or disinfecting gels at the ready to clean up before eating. Clean up well

Promptly clean all serving platters, utensils and cutting boards if they have been in contact with raw food juices. The FDA even recommends that you sanitize your cutting board with chlorine bleach, and replace it if the surface gets worn and difficult to clean. Outdoor cooking and dining are quite popular. Following safety precautions can go a long way toward preventing foodborne illnesses.

Stop Banging Your Head Looking for Effective Treatment for Knee Pain! Have You Heard About The Breakthrough Non-surgical Treatment Patients With KNEE Pain Come To Zanesville For? Do You Have Any of the Following Conditions?

•Arthritis •Knee Pain •Cartilage Damage •”Bone-on bone” •Tendonitis •Bursitis •Crunching & popping sounds •Difficulty going up or down stairs

A popular M.D. Specialist (who shall remain nameless) had been studying the results that are achieved using cold laser for chronic pain here in Zanesville, Ohio. He began to notice that many of his patients were doing quite well, some even becoming pain-free. In fact, he was so impressed by the results he was seeing with cold laser for his patients, that he referred his wife in for treatment on her arthritic knees to help get her out of pain and help her avoid surgery! She knew, like you might, that living with knee pain can feel like a crippling experience. Let’s face it, our knees aren’t as young as they used to be, and playing with the kids or grandkids isn’t getting any easier either and your knee pain keeps you from walking short distances or playing golf like you used to. Nothing’s worse than feeling great mentally, but physically feeling held back from life because your knee hurts and the pain just won’t go away! My name is Dr. Russ Schroder, and I am Southeast Ohio’s only Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist. Since we bought our first laser eight years ago, I’ve seen countless people with knee problems leave the office pain free. If you’re suffering from any of these conditions, a new breakthrough in medical technology can dramatically reduce or completely eliminate your pain and help restore normal function to your knees.

Cold laser therapy has been tested for 40 years, had over 3000 papers published on it, and been shown to reduce inflammation, relieve pain and soften up dense scar tissue.

Professional athletes like the U.S. Cycling team and members of the New England Patriots rely upon cold laser therapy to treat their sports-related injuries. These guys use the cold laser for one reason only ... It Promotes Rapid Healing Of The Injured Tissues. Before the FDA would clear the cold laser for human use, they wanted to see proof that it worked. This lead to two landmark studies. The first study showed that patients who had cold laser therapy had 53% better improvement than those who had a placebo. The second study showed patients who used the laser therapy had less pain and more range of motion days after treatment. If the cold laser can help these patients, it can help you too.

Here is what my patients are saying about us:

My progress was pretty quick, pretty early and has continued to improve. I have pain in my right knee. The pain has gone from a 6 to a 2 in just a couple weeks.” Dr. Paul Dunn, PhD Neuropsychologist, Parkersburg, WV “I was having knee pain so I went to a doctor who gave me a shot. Then he game me 3 shots and that didn’t help. So II was going to have it operated on but they couldn‘t operate on it ‘til the swelling went down. So I read about this in the paper and thought it was too good to be true! But it’s really helped. I really appreciate it, I would’ve had to move in with one of my grandchildren if I’d had an operation. One lives in Wisconsin and one lives in Virginia,and I didn’t want to do that! [The treatment] was wonderful! It was very comfortable. I almost went to sleep! It can’t be beat. The staff is great. Thank you!” Shirley S. “I read an article in the Coshocton Tribute. I had massive pain in my knees and I’ve done great. I went from eating 15-20 aspirins per day and I haven’t had ANY for 20 days now. My pain is down by nearly half. My left knee is down by three quarters and my right knee is down by probably half. I was going through those little bottles of aspirin every two days. It was major! I’m getting around a LOT better. And it’s only been about 5 weeks. It’s fun and I enjoy coming down. I feel better!” Roger P. “I was facing: knee replacement surgery. I’d been the route of synvisc shots and it was just a matter of time until it [surgery] had to be done because the pain was continuous. I saw an article and said this is something I need to check out. So I came up here and by the third week, it was amazing:! I was walking: and back into my exercise. The pain is almost non-existent! [after just one month] I don’t have to push myself up out of a chair now. I just get up and down now like a normal person. Even in and out of cars. The weekend before last we spent the day in Amish country and walked from daylight ‘til dark practically and all I had was normal tiredness in my legs. And this weekend I went to walk the mall for 7 hours and didn’t even feel tired, my legs didn’t drag and I even got in and out of the car just fine. I think this treatment’s been the most wonderful thing I could have ever done! I recommend it to anybody. And I would come back in for a second!” Sandra S.

Helping to Prepare Heirs for Their Inheritance or What can Happen if You Don’t! Submitted by ATTORNEY FRANK A. MCCLURE, ESQ., A.E.P.


n the past, as I will do in the future, I have written about Estate Planning topics which I hear about when I speak to clients in my office or when I have questions from one of my presentations. Remember, Estate Planning is a very complicated area of the law, and because of this there are many different understandings that abound. One of the topics that come up frequently is how do I prepare my heirs for their inheritance? It is my opinion that those who have built up an estate over the years are rightly concerned about what is the best use of their estate so their heirs have enough to be

able to live a good life, but not so much that they still don’t have to do something with their lives. By this I mean that parents worry that their kids will grow up feeling that they are entitled, or believe that they are or will become spoiled and will have no idea what hard work is. Trust planning comes to mind when planning for a child who is a minor. We know that a trust can provide for education, health needs and maintenance. But what about when the children are not minors? What about children that may have established careers, and are in their 30s or 40s? Even then we don’t want to forget about ASSET PROTECTION, as well as ensuring an avenue of flexibility for responding to future circumstances for the child, when parents are not here. So, you’ve decided to have a trust-based estate plan. What do you tell your kids, and when? COMMUNICATION IS IMPORTANT! For many families, talking about money, assets, estate plans and ultimately death is even more uncomfortable than discussing religion or politics! But communication about an estate plan (which includes other ancillary documents besides the Trust, such as health care documents) is especially important as to the reasons behind the planning, which I have found to be extremely

important in defusing misunderstandings and avoiding conflicts among your heirs. One of the reasons clients spend the time and money to plan is to have a comfort level, knowing that there will not be any problems upon their death. I will attempt to address a couple of issues I have seen that can be defused by communication and good planning. UNEQUAL TREATMENT OF HEIRS I have expressed in these articles in the past, that there are times when unequal treatment of heirs is called for. In fact there is sometimes a big distinction between EQUAL and FAIR. There is nothing wrong with unequal treatment if that is what the person setting up the plan believes is right and fair thing to do. Some heirs have had larger shares provided during their lifetime compared to their siblings. Or an heir has accumulated a great amount of wealth as compared to their siblings and don’t really need as much. The problem arises when the heirs in this situation have a way of confusing the degree of love with the size of the eventual inheritance. It is important that you air your motivations behind which your plan has been constructed. At the same time, it is important that the estate planning isn’t a family-wide project, and the plan itself is not being voted on.

details of their estate plan. Remember that you need to understand your plan or have the Attorney who drafted the estate plan present to help you. Who will be invited? What about spouses? There is no right or wrongs with these two questions but it is important to decide these questions before you set up the meeting. What is troublesome to me is that many people do not think about communication issues with their heirs until it is too late. Think these issues through and plan carefully and execute a plan to provide you with peace of mind and security for yourself and your loved ones. Not communicating with heirs can make your plan fail as much as not having the document drafted correctly. Talk with an attorney who practices in the area of estate planning, otherwise you are more than likely PLANNING TO FAIL!

McClure & Associates may be reached at 1009 Steubenville Ave, Cambridge, Ohio 43725; (740) 432-7844; by fax: (740) 439-4950;

SETTING REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS Another possible problem is that the heirs don’t have any realistic idea of what they will receive. They will say that they don’t care, but don’t believe that. Some heirs will have expectations of a larger inheritance that they can realistically receive will others may expect too little. Either misconception can lead to unwise planning choices by the heirs in their own personal financial situation.

Tired of Banging Your Head Looking for Effective Neck or Back Pain Treatment?

If you suffer from the following conditions… •Sciatica •Disc degeneration •Lower back pain/neck pain •Numbness and burning in the legs and feet •Radiating hip pain •Neuropathy •Fibromyalgia …there may be hope. Now, a local doctor has what may be the most important treatment in helping these conditions. If You Read Nothing Else, Read This: Millions of Americans suffer from lumbar disc pain and sciatica. Sciatica is a compression of the sciatic nerve, usually by an L4 or L5 disc herniation or degeneration. As you know, sciatica can be a very painful problem, even crippling at times. This painful condition interferes with your body’s ability to transmit messages to your muscles, skin, joints, or internal organs. If ignored or mistreated, these problems can lead to irreversible health conditions. Why not get help by those trained to correct the major cause of disc pain and sciatica. Read the full facts on this page. Finally, there’s a treatment to conquer back and leg pain without dangerous medications or painful surgery. Nothing’s worse than feeling great mentally but physically feeling held back from life because you hurt and the pain just won’t go away! Sure, you can numb the pain if you take enough Vicodin, Soma or some other pill, but the real problem is while you make it through the day all “numbed up”, you are likely making your problem even worse…without knowing it. No matter where you are with back pain, whether you’re having unrelenting foot pain and facing surgery or you just injured it yesterday, a treatment called low level laser therapy may be the answer for you. Two landmark studies have proven the effectiveness of cold lasers. The first study showed patients who used the laser therapy had less pain and more range of motion days after treatment. If the laser therapy can help these patients, it can help you too. These second study showed that patients who had laser

therapy had 53% better improvement than those who just had a placebo. Are you suffering from sciatica or back pain? If so, relief may be easier than you think. Could This Non-Invasive Treatment Eliminate Your Back and Sciatica Pain? My name is Dr. Russ Schroder, Clinic Director at the D-C Chiropractic Neurology Center in Zanesville. I understand what it feels like to live in pain, because I see it everyday. I’ve seen hundreds of people with back pain, numbness, and foot pain leave the office pain free. This is why for 10 days only, I’m running a very special offer where you can find out if you are a candidate for cold laser. What these studies mean is that you could soon be enjoying life…without those aggravating nerve problems. It’s time for you to find out if this will be your back pain and sciatica solution. How Much Does It Cost? For 10 days only, $45 will get you all the services I normally charge new patients $245 for! *What does this offer include? Everything. Take a look at what you will receive: •An in-depth consultation about your health and well-being where I will listen…really listen…to the details of your case. •A consultation with Dr. Russ Schroder, D.C., D.A.C.N.B., F.A.C.F.N. -Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist and Functional Neurologist, & Chiropractor to discuss thequestions you may have. •A complete back/neck/nerve pain qualification case history and questionnaire to help determine if you are a candidate. •A thorough Neurological Exam •A Free follow-up consultation, If you qualify for our program and what your options are. •*Excludes further testing or treatment. Here’s what to do now: Call 740-454-1747 and tell one of my Special Assistants that you want a “Cold Laser Decompression Qualification Evaluation.” If you call in the next 10 days, you will be eligible to receive all the above for only $45. The normal cost is $245. Due to the expected demand, it is suggested to call at once. Any delay could lead to being placed on a waiting list and paying fullprice. You’ll get to see everything first hand and find out if this painless treatment will be your back pain and sciatica solution, like it has been for so many other patients. And the good news is, most patients respond quickly to laser treatments. Our office is located on the corner of 3rd and Main Streets in downtown Zanesville. When you call, tell my Special Assistant you’d like to come in for the Cold Laser Decompression Evaluation so she can make sure you receive proper credit for this special offer. Sincerely, Dr. Russ Schroder D.C.D.A.C.N.B., F.A.C.F.N. The quickest and easiest way to discover if cold laser relief program will be the answer to your back, neck or nerve pain like it has been for hundreds of patients just like you…is to call… Right now! The number is 740-454-1747

Here’s what patients are saying about us: My name is Steve Vincent, and I am a Zanesville City Firefighter. You may see the fireworks I put on downtown or hear my voice at the cake auction each year. As you can imagine, 2 out of the 3 are physically demanding. I’ve got to admit that I may have been a surgical statistic this year if it weren’t for Dr. Russ. I’ve had back problems for a decade now, but in the past couple of years it was getting noticeably worse. I had Chiropractic care before that had helped for a while. I bought a home inversion table that stretched me. I exercised, rested, iced, and heated my low-back, but it was quickly worsening on a much more consistent basis. I even crunched down vitamins and herbs to help the pain, but nothing was giving me consistent or lasting relief. I consulted with a couple surgeons this past year, and I was starting to think that surgery might be my next/ last option. Then I read Dr. Russ had a new DRX machine put in this year that gets miraculous results with herniated and bulging discs. Since I had already checked out the other so-called alternatives to decompression, I chose the DRX9000 and his office because he explained to me exactly what the treatments did and how they were the safest, least invasive, and most effective choice available. And I’m here today to tell you that even two months after my treatment plan is done my back feels ten years younger! It’s been feeling this good since halfway through my program and I haven’t looked back. My name is Melissa. I’m 39 years old and I have Disc degeneration. I hurt my lower back when I was a teenager and have had pain in my lower back for many years off and on. The past two years I’ve really been in a lot of pain. I’ve tried therapy, pain shots and all kinds of pain pills. They didn’t work. I spent a lot of my time in bed or on the couch. Many days I couldn’t work or get out of bed. I didn’t know what else to try. Then my friend told me that she had the same problem and told me about the DRX9000. I thought “Why not try it?” So I went to Dr. Russ’ office and started treatments and after the third one I could feel the difference and by my last treatment I was pain free. The treatments are painless and so relaxing. Dr. Russ and staff are great. They explained everything about my treatment and made me feel comfortable. I am now back to my normal, everyday routine. Thanks again Dr. Russ and Staff. You have changed my life greatly. God Bless.

Laura, thinking she had never slept a wink, woke and sprang to her feet at Grandmother Jane’s pre-dawn summons. She shivered – chills of anxiety mixed with the thrill of anticipation. Today was the day! At last! The day of the family’s semi-annual trip to Caldwell! The big town! Although she had been making this trip, from Rich Hill, the three hundred acre family farm, as long as she could remember, this excursion loomed large. Today she would be out-fitted, not only for winter, but for her new life. Turning fifteen in October, she would go to live with Aunt Lettie Talbott’s family in Middleport, Ohio. She would attend high school there, since there was none in Mt. Ephraim, nearest village to the farm. After prayers and breakfast, chickens and hogs fed, cows milked, Laura’s father, Henderson, hitched up the horses to the spring wagon in the barnyard below the tall, cream-colored Victorian Gothic farmhouse. The family – stepmother Mary, Laura, sister Emma and little brother Wallace – climbed in. Grandmother stayed at home to feed the hired man and work on supper preparation. Henderson lifted the reins over the team and headed southwest for the twelve miles to Caldwell. Caldwell, county seat of Noble County, Ohio was

whole kit and kaboodle – wire, chain, rope, nuts, bolts – over at Friedman’s with your purchases.” Henderson said Mary’s choice was drab and chose a Wilton the salesman called a rose garden – roses in shades from wine to rosy red, strewn lavishly on a deep blue field. “But you said...” said Mary, biting her lip as she saw the look of pleasure on his face. After the hours of toil Mary spent installing the carpet on the parlor floor, she said to Grandma Jane. “Henderson’s rose garden – to him. To me a patch of blooming cabbages.” Laura, fourth generation of the pioneer family, had opposite sentiments as to her new coat. Instead of the brightly blooming red one she wanted, Mama Mary had insisted on a dull tan garment, colorless indeed, but serviceable. No cabbage patch, certainly, but a drab, dreary hayfield to Laura. On the other hand, Middleport loomed – a garden-like vision in the future. Next month, learn about Laura Rich’s school years in Middleport, A New Life.

established in 1857 along the west bank of Duck Creek. Named for brothers Joseph and Samuel Caldwell, the land’s original owners, the population was at 1,248 now in 1902. Robert L. Reed of Zanesville is a descendant of the founders. His mother was a Caldwell. Caldwell claimed the first oil well in North America. Drilled on its outskirts in 1814, as a result, the town prospered in the last two decades of the nineteenth century. Caldwell Woolen Mills, the town’s largest employer, made blankets. The town also boasted four newspaper offices, three churches and one bank. Altogether an intimidating, bustling hive of activity: Laura’s excitement was mixed with the fear of getting lost. The girls huddled together against the chill of the early September morning in last years’ coats, now outgrown and due for replacement. Laura had her heart set on a red one. They stopped mid-morning along Duck Creek for the lunch of sandwiches Mary provided. Arriving in Caldwell, Henderson dropped his passengers off in front of Henry Friedman’s store, centrally located on the square across from the courthouse. The store, a two-story brick structure of federal architecture, topped by a cupola, presided over a landscaped area enclosed by an iron fence. Situated on the square were a grocery, an attorney’s office, the Noble County Bank, a saloon, Okey’s drug store, the Odd Fellows’ building, a jewelry store, newspaper offices, a shoe and a millinery store, plus two hotels, The Exchange and The Eagle – a bewildering maze to the country girl. Promising to meet again later in the day at the carpet store, to choose a new rug for the parlor, Henderson said, “You know, Mary, whatever you decide I’ll go along with.” He left the team in a relative’s barn, proceeded with his own errands. Mid-afternoon, struggling with parcels, Laura, tarrying behind in the dress shop, looked up to find her family gone. Heart thudding, she raced out the door onto the sidewalk, certain she would lose her way in the crush, amidst the throng of pedestrians. Panic stricken, Laura looked both ways. Turning from the window next door, Mary came to her rescue. Henderson arrived at the carpet store to find Mary looking at a dull, tan serviceable pattern. “Did you finish your list?” she asked. “Over and done with for the next six months. Left the

Tired of Banging Your Head Looking for an Effective Neuropathy Treatment? The problem is often misdiagnosed, or not diagnosed at all. But, it affects the lives of between 10 and 20 million Americans. This problem can cause: 1. Numbness. 2. Burning pain. 3. Cramping. 4. Sharp, electric pain. 5. Hurt when you walk. 6. Difficulty sleeping from leg/foot discomfort. 7. Prickling/tingling feelings. If you suffer from one or more of these problems, you may have peripheral neuropathy. And, if you do, you’re not alone. Often, these good people have been frustrated by the traditional care they’ve received for these terrible problems, and are still seeking help. These problems can be caused by diabetes, hereditary disorders, inflammation, medications such as cholesterol lowering (statin) drugs, and more. For the past 14 years, I’ve studied this class of conditions, collectively known as “peripheral neuropathies.” In fact, helping people with these problems has become a primary focus of mine. It’s not unusual for me to hear stories from patients who’ve suffered for years with terrible symptoms. For many, they are missing out on the things they love to do. They aren’t enjoying life as they once did. If that describes you, then perhaps I can help. I practice a multi-pronged attack to these problems. It’s a unique program that only about 1,000 doctors worldwide have studied and are certified in. That’s why I’ve put together the “Neuropathy Pain Relief Program” for anyone suffering from the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy pain. And, the beautiful thing is that when these health situations are resolved, people have great improvements in the quality of their lives. In many cases, they finally can live pain free, with peace and joy in their lives again. Here’s what some of your neighbors have to say:

“Hello, my name is Perry Brown and I am from Macdowell, Kentucky. I’ve been to hospitals for the last 9 years with neuropathy in my feet and none of them could tell me what caused it or what the cure is. I came to Zanesville to Dr. Russ Schroder and I didn’t think that he was going to be able to do anything either, but I’ve been with him for 2 months now and the feeling is coming back in my feet, the color is coming back, the swelling is gone out of them and I’ve lost 60 pounds. I am doing real good.” “I have neuropathy very bad, pains very bad, but the sharp pains I have not had this week. Those bad sharp pains (that I had for months and months) are not there. I was able to start walking and I was off my walker. That’s pretty good for a week!” D. Wagner (Marietta) “I have had neuropathy in my feet. They were numb for a year, maybe longer. Amazingly, it’s only been three weeks and I told my wife this morning I can feel things in my feet that I hadn’t felt Ken, Zanesville

Innovative care Powerful results

You can’t have nerve pressure or ‘pinched nerves’ and get better from neuropathy. Using the latest in technology, I offer non-invasive care. I help patients get well with literally no twisting or popping of their spine because I use patented adjusting instrumentation that is highly researched, lowforce and computerized. When the nerve pressure from the spine is more severe, we use Non-surgical Cold Laser Decompression. This frees the nerves, and the damage caused by old herniated discs or arthritis.

Neurology and completed my Fellowship in Functional Neurology in 2011 and have been helping even some of the worst cases of neuropathy since then. At our Neurology Center, our goal is to get the word out to as many people as we can that our Neuropathy Program may be for you!

Do You Qualify For This New Program?

When you call and make an appointment, I’ll perform a highly-specialized Neuropathy Scoring Exam of the nerves in the legs and feet to see if we may be able to help. But, please call right away because we can take only the first 15 callers. If you are one of these 15, I’ll do this Evaluation and Qualifying Process for only $45*. The normal cost is $245. Due to the expected demand, it is suggested to call 740-454-1747 at once. Any delay could lead to being placed on a waiting list and paying full price. Add some peace to your life or the life of someone you love. Call today to make an appointment. We can help you.

Thank you, Dr. Russ Schroder, D.C., FACFN, DACNB *Excludes further testing or treatment.

More about this Unique Care

We also use Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT). It’s a newly developed tool that’s very safe. This noninvasive healing light has been proven to work wonders on peripheral neuropathy symptoms. Also the Rebuilder© which is an electrical nerve stimulator that works to rebuild damaged nerves.

try the marinated road possum and grits. His enjoyment in that role quickly ignited the crowd into a happy mood. The cruise was a smooth two hour ride up and down the river. Many enjoyed going to the top deck to get a better view and feel the breeze. The paddle wheel created quite a spray so those standing near it received a generous  sprinkling. After some fresh air, passengers returned to the main cabin to listen to Mark Twain spin his yarns. Twain then told of his being born in 1835 at Florida, Missouri – population 99. Growing up,  he was given a big spoon of cod liver oil every day. He remarked that his tongue and body were so slippery, he could have eaten broken glass and it would have passed. At 13, Samuel Clemens became a printer’s apprentice and soon joined his brother Orion’s newspaper, where he discovered he enjoyed writing stories. A few years later he headed to St. Louis, Missouri for another newspaper job but got sidetracked by falling in love …with the river. For two years he served as an apprentice receiving $500 at the end of that period. Training was not as easy

as it might sound. In order to get a license, pilots had to know the 2,000 miles of the Mississippi like the back of their hand. Even at nighttime, pilots were required

to remember the placement of every sandbar and the name of every twist and turn, like Eagles Fork or Johnsons Landing. But Mark Twain said during those years, “I had the time of my life.” After becoming a full-fledged riverboat pilot, he was paid $250 a month. The only other people in the United States at that time that made $250 a month, besides river pilots, were the vice-president of the United States and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Riverboat pilot was much more profitable than writing fiction!

When riverboat travel became impossible in 1861 due to the Civil War, Mark Twain returned to the world of the newspaper. His adventures led him across the United States from coast to coast as well as to Europe and the Middle East. After his travels, he settled in Hartford, Conneticut with his Twain visited everyone. wife and family in 1873. That is where he wrote stories based on his memories of growing up in Hannibal, and enjoying the Mississippi River. Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn came to life through his pen. The journey was closed with Mark Twain telling his favorite story, “Golden Arm”. It was the story of a rich family from Hannibal, who always came to the landing

to see the riverboats arrive and hear the calliope. Mark Twain even sang a Riverboat Song and had the audience join in on the chorus: Down the river, Down the river, Oh down the O-hi-o. I’ll not tell the story though, perhaps the next time he visits Marietta you will get a chance to hear more of his delightful tales. Later in life Mark Twain uttered this comment: “I came in with Halley’s Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don’t go out with Halley’s Comet. The Almighty has said, no doubt: ‘Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together.’ ”  And Mark Twain was not disappointed.

ne of the most talked about parts of a vacation, before and after, is the food. So, it’s little surprise that culinary tourism has become one of the hottest trends. The phrase “culinary tourism” was first used in 1998 to describe the experience of discovering other cultures and food in a unique way.  According to the American Culinary Traveler, “The percentage of US leisure travelers who travel to learn about unique dining experiences grew from 40 percent to 51 percent between 2006 and 2013. Guernsey County’s “sin-sational” bakeries and local diners will charm you with their home cooked meals and tasty treats. With dozens of local eateries to experience, you’ll savor a taste of Ohio! Mile-high pies Theo’s Restaurant in downtown Cambridge dishes up its famous mile high lemon and chocolate pies topped so high with a tasty homemade meringue — you may not see the person across the table! Dig in! Bake & shake The aroma of freshly baked glazed donuts, sugar cookies, pies and other goodies at Kennedy’s Bakery envelope you the moment you walk through the door. “The Original,” as the locals affectionately call it, has been part of the community since 1925.

Did You Know


any people opt for bottled water hoping to avoid the potential pathogens lurking inside of regular tap water. But consuming bottled water contributes to the ever-growing problem of discarded plastic bottles and other waste, and you may not be getting what you think when choosing bottled water over tap water. The National Resources Defense Council says sales of bottled water have tripled in the past 10 years to around $4 billion per year, fueled largely on the premise that bottled water comes from crystalclean springs or untouched glaciers. According to U.S. government estimates and industry experts, as much as 40 percent of bottled water is derived from tap water. The NRDC says even one brand of “spring water” was found to come from a well in an industrial facility’s parking lot near a hazardous waste dump. Also, many bottled waters

are exempt from the Food and Drug Administrations bottled water standards because the FDA says its rules do not apply to water packaged and sold within the same state. When waters are covered and tested, they may be subject to weaker regulations than regular tap water. What’s more, even if bottled water is thoroughly filtered, data suggests that plastic bottles could be putting your health at risk. According to the organization Ban the Bottle, water contained in polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles can absorb chemicals from the plastic the longer the water is in storage. These include a chemical called antimony, a white metallic element that in small doses can cause nausea, dizziness and depression. In large doses, antimony can be fatal. Bottled water that is sitting in a hot area can leach the chemicals even faster.

llergy triggers are all around, and the rates of those people affected by various allergies seems to be growing. Worldwide, the rise in prevalence of allergic diseases has continued in the industrialized world for more than 50 years, according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology. Sensitization to foreign proteins in one’s environment is present in up to 40 percent of the world’s population, continues AAAAI. An allergy is defined as an overreaction of the human immune system to a foreign protein (allergen) that is eaten, inhaled, touched, or injected into the body. Allergies can cause such reactions as stuffy or runny noses, itchy eyes, coughing/sneezing, rashes, and hives. More severe reactions can include difficulty breathing, a lowering of blood pressure and asthma attacks. Millions of visits to physician offices result in a primary diagnosis of allergic rhinitis, or hay fever — one of the most common allergy manifestations. The CDC says 17.6 million Americans were diagnosed with hay fever in the past 12 months. Allergic rhinitis is a common condition that creates symptoms similar to a cold. Unlike a cold, which is caused by a virus, allergic rhinitis is an allergic response to any number of triggers. Usually hay fever can be brought on by any number of allergens and sometimes it can be difficult to narrow down the exact cause. However, here are some of the more common allergens. • Pollen: Of all things that can cause an allergy, those

resulting from pollen tend to be the most prolific. Pollen can be released from trees, grasses, weeds, and flowers throughout much of the year. While the main goal of pollen is to fertilize other plants, pollen that is inhaled can cause allergic reactions. It’s one of the more difficult allergens to avoid since pollen is virtually everywhere. • Dust: Dust is an accumulation of microscopic particles that become trapped in a home. A large portion of dust is comprised of dust mites. WebMD says about 20 million Americans are allergic to dust mites and their waste. Dust mites feed on skin from pets and humans. They tend to spike in numbers during warmer weather or if indoor temperatures are kept at 75 F or higher. Cleaning using a HEPA filter vacuum can keep dust at a minimum. Air purifiers also may be able to help. • Animal dander: Millions of pet owners have an allergy to their animals, says AAAAI. It’s not the fur of the animal that causes the trouble, but usually proteins found in a pet’s shed skin, saliva and urine that can cause problems. Keep in mind that there are no truly hypoallergenic breeds, and length of hair or fur will not eliminate allergies. An allergist may be able to suggest a course of treatment. • Mold: Tiny fungi with spores that float through the

air, mold is yet another common allergen. The most common allergy-causing molds include Alternaria, Aspergillus, Cladosporium, and Penicillium. Preventing the environment needed for mold to grow can reduce allergic reactions. This primarily means airing out homes to keep them dry. Allergies can occur all year long and be bothersome. Working with an allergist and avoiding the most common triggers can help people feel more comfortable.

Celebrating Mother’s Day


unday May 8th is Mother’s Day. What began as one woman’s way of honoring her own mother in the early 1900s is now a nationally recognized holiday. However, celebrations honoring motherhood have been identified as far back as the Greek & Roman times. As life situations change, finding appropriate ways to celebrate the day may be a challenge. Here are a few suggestions on how you can make the most of the day while honoring the women you love. * Try not to be selfish. Recognize that the women in your life may want to celebrate with their children. Know that your siblings may also want to share the day with your mom. * Make some new memories. Plan to simply spend time with your mom focused on an activity you both enjoy. * Relive good times. Many resources are available to create photo books where you can layout happy memories of days gone by to present to you mother or grandmother. These can be created in store, at places like Walgreens or Costco, or online with resources like Snapfish, Shutterfly and Picaboo. * Share the days with others. If your mom has passed away you may want to consider recognizing her by donating time or money to a charity that she would like. Check with your local nursing home to see if anyone could use a visitor on this day when family may be far away or otherwise engaged. * Honoring the mom-to-be. Pregnant women are already caring for the yet to be born child. Show her some love and support her transition to motherhood. Whatever way you choose to celebrate, or be honored yourself, recognize that all efforts whether grand or small come from a place of love and respect. Happy Mother’s Day.
