A Few of My Favorite Things

Graphics

Suzy Beth Sarver

When I think of autumn, I could easily compose a new version of Rogers and Hammerstein’s “My Favorite Things” (from ”The Sound of Music”). The new lyrics would reflect my love for crushing fall leaves beneath my feet – and the bursting colors of rust, gold and aubergine. The hayrides and bonfires; the cool, crisp air. Carving pumpkins and enjoying caramel apples, while spending quality time with those we love. The football games and Halloween…these are a few of my favorite things. This is my fifth autumn in the 919 and surely to be my best. I have made so many new friends here and learned so much about the beautiful state of North Carolina and the treasure right here in the Greater Raleigh area. Look what we have in this information-packed issue: • We are pleased to again host the popular Youth Stage at the IBMA Wide Open Bluegrass Festival in downtown Raleigh Sept. 29-30. Please make sure to stop by and say hello at the 919 tent and stage in front of the Raleigh Convention Center. You can read all about this amazing event attracting over 200,000 music lovers (and “jammers”) to the region. It all begins on Page 35. • We have a full listing of individual and family outdoor activities this fall, but be sure see our “Take Your Child Outdoors Week” roundup on Page 54. Scheduled for Sept. 22-26, we offer many suggestions from Raleigh Parks and Recreation – and even more things to do throughout the region on Pages73-74. • As the celebration of our 5th Year Anniversary continues in 2017, we look back at “Ten 919 Magazine Covers We Love” on Pages 32-33. With over 135 published issues of 919 Magazine it was hard to select just 10. We actually have a tie with the 10th place too. Do you know any of these 919’rs? • And there’s so much more in this issue, from Halloween events to special autumn-related activities (corn mazes and pumpkin patches!) –and so much more. Thank you for being a 919 Magazine reader. Some of you have been with us from the beginning; others have joined our journey along the way. No matter how or when you arrived, we are glad you are here with us. If you want to share a story, promote your business or simply make a comment, please reach out to us at 919Magazine.com – because if it’s important to you, then it’s important to us. Enjoy this great time of the year in the 919, where we all Live, Work and Play. Sincerely, Suzy Beth Sarver 12

919 >> ANNIVERSARY

9 1 9 E H T N I S R A 5 YE For more than five years, 919 Magazine has brought to the neighborhoods and suburban towns along the I-540 Corridor in Central North Carolina a true sense of community. Built on the premise of giving local residents what they want to read – in a format that is accessible and easy to consume – 919 Magazine, over the years, has profiled teachers and students, coaches and principals, athletes and politicians, volunteers and millionaires, kids and grandparents, pet lovers and police officers, and sports fans and firefighters.

At the same time, 919 Magazine, in every issue, provided a sense of what was happening in the neighborhoods, the libraries, the school classrooms, the city halls, the local eateries and taverns, and more. The unique publication strived to provide a sense of community when there was none – at least, perhaps – in the traditional sense. And five years is only the beginning. Stay tuned for the ride…it only gets better.

TEN 919 MAGAZINE COVERS TO LOVE Brian Whalen

Ed Morris ON THE COVER:

Wake Forest Historical Museum Executive Director – July 2013 (Wake Forest)

NOW:

Same Position

“As a result of the 919 Magazine article, I was featured as “Tar Heel of the Week” in the News and Observer (January 2014). The Wake Forest Historical Museum hosted a traveling Smithsonian exhibit in 2014 and the interior of the ca. 1820 Dr. Calvin Jones House underwent a full restoration including period furnishings. Dr. Calvin Jones was inducted into the Raleigh Hall of Fame and recently the house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Thank you, 919!”

ON THE COVER:

Brian Whalen, Morrisville Fire/Rescue Dept. Firefighter – April 2013 (Morrisville)

NOW:

MRFD Engineer, unofficial “face” of MRFD

“Since I was picked to be on the cover of 919 Magazine, I was promoted from MFRD Firefighter to Engineer – and received an invitation to make a commercial for Safe Kids demonstrating the proper way to install a child safety seat. Due to doing both the same year I was given an “award” at the department’s annual awards banquet and I am now the unofficial “face” of Morrisville Fire. I’ve also had 2 kids and bought and sold my first home.”

Sheldon Lanier ON THE COVER: Leesville Road Middle Assistant Principal – Jan. 2013 (Leesville)

NOW:

Director of Equity Leadership, CHCCS

Lanier recently graduated with a Doctor of Education Degree (with a concentration in educational leadership) from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His dissertation and research focused on negative racial media portrayals of African American males in the U.S. and how these images ultimately affect teacher perceptions and subsequent treatment of males of color. Dr. Lanier currently serves as the Director of Equity Leadership for Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools and a member of the Research Practitioner Council for the Minority Student Achievement Network.


ANNIVERSARY << 919 Braxton Berrios ON THE COVER: Leesville Road High football team – Sept. 2013 (Leesville)

NOW:

Wide Receiver, University of Miami

“I’ve just been focused on school and football lately. I’m two classes away from graduating, and in my senior season here at “The U”. I’m enjoying every bit of Miami and have made some real lifelong friends. I try to take each day as the blessing it is and live one day at a time. I’m doing great.”

Chris Carrigan ON THE COVER:

Commander, Raleigh Police Dept, NW District – May 2012 (Leesville)

NOW:

Supervises multiple RPD Detective Units

Lyla Grace ON THE COVER:

Paul Gardiner and granddaughter Lyla Grace – No. 2013 (Brier Creek)

Noah Hullinger NOW:

Still having fun in North Raleigh

Lyla Grace is in the 1st Grade at Cary Christian School. This past summer, she competed in her second season swimming as a Brier Creek Barracuda. In addition to playing with her dolls and Barbies, Lyla has grown fond of spending time with her older brother and her new adopted little brothers. Paul Gardiner, Lyla’s “Poppie” is currently working as a business administrator and volunteer assistant swim coach for Brier Creek Country Club. Recently, he celebrated his 39th anniversary with wife, Pat Gardiner. Both enjoy spending time with all their grandchildren.

Brier Creek Elementary Principal – May 2013 (Brier Creek) “I spent 5½ years as the Commander for the Northwest District of the Raleigh Police Department. By improving engagement with the community we were able to experience five consecutive years of crime reduction in the NWD. Looking for a new challenge, I transferred to the Detective Division and now oversee multiple investigative units.”

Sam and Connor Sarver

This one is a tie. When your Mom is the Publisher of 919 Magazine, you need to be a little flexible. Two times over the past five years the guest cover person had to cancel last minute – thrusting both boys into the cover model role. First was Connor Jack, to fill in for the holiday issue in 2012. Then Sam in February 2013. Both boys continue to thrive in the 919: Sam is training for the airlines; and Connor is a student at Leesville Road High School.

NOW:

Principal, Horton’s Creek Elementary in Cary

An elementary school principal in the Wake County Public School System, Chambers is in her 22nd year as an educator.

ON THE COVERS:

Sarver Brothers: Sam and Connor – (Feb. 2013; Nov. 2012)

An infant, living with his parents – May 2014 (Brier Creek)

NOW:

Age 4 and learning to swim

The Hullingers moved from Brier Creek to Charlotte in December 2016. Kimberly is still employed at Cisco, as a New Business Operations Manager; and Joe is President of Finance of America Commercial Lending. Big brother Chase, age 10, has made the A Honor Roll and his soccer team won the championship game in June. Baby Noah is now age 4 and learning to swim – and hobnobbing with some famous characters (Snoopy)…and moonlighting as Spiderman in his spare time.

Don McNeil ON THE COVER:

Sandy Chambers ON THE COVER:

ON THE COVER:

Bedford resident and Mark Twain impersonator – Nov. 2015 (North Raleigh)

NOW:

North Raleigh resident, and still channeling Twain

‘I won’t deny it; I was thrilled when 919 Magazine did a feature on me and my Mark Twain speaking career. Since then, I have done at least 25 “Mark Twain” events – everything from regional libraries to corporate events. My wife, Carolyn, often goes with me, making it a “date night”. When my book is published… I will advertise in 919 Magazine.”

NOW:

Sam working, training for airlines; Connor at Leesville Road High

Walk of Hope

Thousands Expected to Help Raise Funds for Mental Health Research

A North Raleigh tradition continues with the 29th Annual Thad & Alice Eure Walk for Hope on Sunday, Oct. 8, at the Angus Barn. One of the largest charity events in the 919, the event begins with registration at 8 a.m. and the walk getting under way at 10 a.m. In the nearly 30 years since it began, the Walk for Hope raised millions of dollars to forward a better understanding – and, eventually perhaps, even a cure – to illnesses such as depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, postpartum depression, schizophrenia, and anorexia. All money raised by participants directly funds local mental health research at the UNC-Chapel Hill Department of Psychiatry. After the walk ends, participants celebrate their achievement with a family-friendly afternoon of food, games, music, and prizes at the Angus Barn grounds.

28TH Annual Thad & Alice Eure Walk, Run for Hope What: 10K, 5K, 1M family runs, benefiting the Foundation of Hope for Research & Treatment of Mental Illness (and Field Certified 5K and 10K)

The Walk for Hope features three different routes: • 10K (6.2 miles) begins at the Angus Barn, loops through Umstead State Park and returns to the Angus Barn. • 5K (3.1 miles) begins at the Angus Barn, turns around at the Umstead State Park Visitor Center, and returns to the Angus Barn. • 1-mile Family Fun Nature Hike around the Angus Barn Lake. Accompanying the Walk for Hope, the Race for Steak is a USA Track & Field Certified run, with timed 5K and 10K routes. The event also includes a raffle, with a wide range of prizes available – including gift cards for travel, furniture and jewelry -- food, music, kids activities, and booths with information on mental health. Breakfast is available prior to the event, and rest stops will include water and snacks. The after-party includes kids’ activities, food, music and more. Non-participant donations are also accepted. “This year we are anticipating over 4,500 participants, our biggest Walk ever,” said Foundation of Hope Executive Director Shelley Belk. “We all know someone who has been touched by mental illness, and raising money for research is critically important to finding solutions. You really can make a difference by walking and fundraising." For information on the event or to purchase tickets, call 919-781-9255, email walkforhope@walkforhope.com or visit walkforhope.com.

‘I want to build a practice where patients experience firsthand that we care about them as a person – rather than feeling like they’re being cranked through a big machine.’ ~ Dr. PATRICK O’CONNELL Sentinel Primary Care

When Dr. Patrick O’Connell received his Medical Degree from UNC-Chapel Hill and completed his formal training at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in 2003, he worked mostly in primary care offices – settings he considered tough environments to practice medicine. Why?

“Because the financial pressures on healthcare translate into the pressure for physicians to go really fast, have a lot of appointments per day, and not spend much time with each person,” Dr. O’Connell explained. “As the pressure grew over the years, I found it harder and harder to give the kind of care and to be the kind of primary care doctor that I went into medicine to be.” Continued on Page 50 919 Magazine Photos by Catherine Davis Photography

919 >> PROFILE

Dr. Patrick O’Connell POSITION: Physician, Executive Director, and Founder at Sentinel Primary Care

YEARS IN POSITION: In medical practice since 2003 PROFESSIONAL Physician in General Internal Medicine BACKGROUND: ie, adult primary care) EDUCATIONAL Brown University; BACKGROUND: UNC-Chapel Hill Medical School;

Residency training and Chief Resident year at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Baltimore

HOMETOWN King, NC RESIDENCE: North Raleigh FAMILY: Wife, Maureen; 4 children:

Peter, 9; Michael 8; Clare 7; Katharine, 4 (older children all attend Thales Academy in Raleigh)

ORGANIZATIONS: Our Lady of Lourdes, Raleigh INTERESTS: Kids’ activities, radio control planes Continued from page 49

Dr. O’Connell said he still made every effort to spend the time with each person that they needed, but that extra time meant he was always behind schedule. And people were spending a lot of their time frustrated in the waiting room waiting to a doctor. That’s when Dr. O’Connell’s concept for Sentinel Primary Care started to form. Located at 10208 Cerny Street, Suite 308, in North Raleigh/ Brier Creek, Sentinel Primary Care is a membership-fee based adult primary care office providing longer visits, faster access, and improved service compared to a standard insurance-based medical office.

The membership fee concept is quite unique, but is simple and easy for patients. “People pay their membership and then they come see me whenever they need,” said Dr. O’Connell, a North Carolina native and married father of four young children. “We don’t charge the person or their insurance for the visit; it’s covered through the membership fee. By operating this way, I can see fewer patients per day and, therefore, spend more time with each person and not rush anyone through their visit.” According to Dr. O’Connell, it also lets him be on time so that no one is wasting time in the waiting room. “This model lets me have a more personal connection with the people I see. I get to know people better when I can spend more time with them,” he noted. “The extra time I can spend also helps me dig into new medical problems more thoroughly – and potentially saves the patient an unnecessary scan or referral to a specialist when we can figure the problem out ourselves.” Sentinel Primary Care has other distinctive features as well. Without having to deal with insurance, the practice has a small staff size – and that smaller size makes people’s interactions with the office better. “We have a small staff; we’re like a small family. For example, when a patient calls the office, the chances are that the staff know them personally from their prior visits and it’s easier for patients to get in touch with me,” Dr. O’Connell said. “I’ll often call people myself with an important test result or return their phone calls myself rather than relay a message through my staff.” Sentinel Primary Care also dedicates part of the practice to people without health insurance. ”The care we give to the uninsured is a distinctive feature. For a nominal fee, we give the same highquality care – longer visits, easier access, etc. – to people without insurance,” said Dr. O’Connell. “A lot of people are struggling with a layoff or low-paying job and so it’s a really great part of our mission to be able to help them too!” Linda Vinson talks with nurses in the waiting area.

As an adult primary care practice, Sentinel provides annual membership patients with checkups, sick visits, and management of ongoing medical problems. The membership fee also covers in-office procedures, like joint injections, skin biopsies, EKGs, and a handful of tests with immediate results – such as a urine test or strep throat test. A person’s insurance then works the same as normal for outside services (for other blood tests, an X-ray, or a specialist visit, for example). “I have several goals for Sentinel Primary Care. I want to build a practice where patients experience firsthand that we care about them as a person – rather than feeling like they’re being

cranked through a big machine – and where they can get the kind of top-notch care that comes when you don’t have to rush,” Dr. O’Connell stressed. “I also want the staff to be able to take pride in giving that kind of personalized care.”

‘We have a small staff; we’re like a small family.’

Anna and Cindy Schauer share the nursing staff position. Anna is a certified medical assistant (CMA), and worked with Dr. O’Connell for several years before the opening of Sentinel Primary Care. “Patients really love her outgoing charm and a couple of patients who followed me from my previous practice joked that they were following Anna and not me!” Dr. O’Connell said.

Cindy is a licensed practical nurse (LPN) with many years of clinical experience in hospitals, nursing home, and primary care settings – with excellent clinical skills., according to Dr. O’Connell.

New Leadership at RTP

Scott Levitan New Research Triangle Foundation CEO

‘We have a leader who we believe can help us write RTP’s next successful chapter.’ ~ Smedes York Research Triangle Foundation Board Chairman

Scott Levitan Is the new CEO of the Research Triangle Foundation, which manages Research Triangle Park. He succeeds Bob Geolas, who left the organization last year. Executive search firm Elinvar managed the placement. In outlining the requirements for the position, the foundation board stressed the importance of hiring an executive who could help to implement its master plan adopted in 2012. “It was important in our selection process to find someone with experience not only in leading research parks, but also in multi-use real estate projects — someone who has partnered with universities, and created strong communities,” said the foundation’s chairman of the board, Smedes York. “With Scott, we have an outstanding leader. We think he will do a great job.” Levitan brings more than 30 years of experience and has led several large-scale, mixed-use development projects, specializing in university-related research parks. Most recently, he was the vice president of Forest City Realty Trust and development director for the Science + Technology Park at Johns Hopkins and the New East Baltimore Community. In this role, he oversaw a $1.5 billion initiative directly adjacent to the Johns Hopkins University medical campus that includes life science research and office space, residen919 Magazine

tial, retail, a new public park and a community school. Previously, he was executive director of real estate development for the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he oversaw real estate planning and development activities. During his tenure, he oversaw the development of Technology Square, a 1.6 million sq. ft. institutionally-sponsored but privatized development initiative in midtown Atlanta. “This is a dream job and amazing opportunity,” said Levitan. “RTP has all the right ingredients — a smart talent pool, a low cost of living, top-tier research universities, engaged staff and community partners, and some of the most innovative companies in the world — to continue growing, transforming, and providing a positive impact to our state and to society at large.” One of Levitan’s top priorities will be to drive Park Center, RTP’s mixed-use redevelopment project, forward. Park Center is a 100-acre parcel in the center of RTP’s 7,000 acres. It will be the first location within RTP to have a walkable, amenity-rich community. Plans call for residential, retail, office, hotels, public parks, and more. “We have put together a strong vision and plan for the future of RTP,” said York. “And now, we have a leader who we believe can help us write RTP’s next successful chapter.”
