from the

AS I EMBARK ON THIS NEW JOURNEY AS EDITOR for the Greater Tupelo Magazine I am grateful for the amazing opportunity that lies before me. It is a great honor to be entrusted with this magazine that does not just inform; it stands for something. Tupelo embraces the idea that business serves a purpose in our world that goes way beyond dollars and cents, and that is one of the things that makes Tupelo as amazing as it is. As we continue to grow and prosper, my hope is that we as Greater Tupelo Magazine can expand as well. Do not let our southern drawl or kudzu in Mississippi fool you because our dirt roads will lead you to some of the most profitable industries in the state, great southern cuisine and our new and exciting events in the Fairpark District. It’s my hope to continue promoting our local business so people will shop locally in Tupelo and Northeast Mississippi and to tell about our “down home” community and the Mississippians who call it home. An ambitious vision, a sense of purpose and a dollop of good down home hospitality is what Greater Tupelo promotes best. As I take on the task of keeping Northeast Mississippi in the know, I feel like the luckiest editor in the world because I know there is no better place to promote than Tupelo, Mississippi. Wherever you are this summer, we hope you will take inspiration from the subjects and products in this issue. I have so many people to give thanks to. Thank you so much to Wesley Wells, publisher and owner of Greater Tupelo Magazine and Legend Publishing for allowing me this opportunity. I am grateful you are my mentor in the publishing world. Thanks so much to Gunner Goad and Keri McMillin for believing in me and providing great encouragement. Much love and thanks to my husband, Jeff and our two children Lily and Doss. Finally, to our readers, the Greater Tupelo Magazine family hopes you enjoy reading this magazine as much as we enjoy writing, designing and producing it. Kelly Jo Brewer, Editor

Jeff Norwood talks about how his faith led him back home By paul jones

F

or much of his life, Jeff Norwood’s career has revolved around college basketball. The former Mississippi State guard (1982-85) remained in Starkville after his playing career and served as a graduate assistant for the men’s program and later as an assistant for the Lady Bulldogs’ program.

After leaving Starkville, Norwood also made coaching stops at Southern Miss, Nicholls State, Middle Tennessee State and more recently, at William Carey. However, later this year, Norwood will make his high school coaching debut when he opens his initial year at his alma mater - Tupelo High School. “It is my first high school coaching job and I am excited about it,” said Norwood of his job at Tupelo. “I am excited mostly because I feel this is where the good Lord wants me to be. All of the things that have taken place in my life; I feel this is where the Lord wanted me to be. “And it’s not just so much about being back here and being at Tupelo where I played. I actually applied for the Itawamba Community College opening with its men’s program, and then it was like I woke up one morning and I’m the head coach for Tupelo.” Norwood also noted he had to put aside “selfish” thoughts when asked about coaching at the place he got his start in basketball. “I never applied for this job in the past when it came

open before,” said Norwood. “And I didn’t apply because of selfish reasons. I felt since I played there that Tupelo would reach out for me and would put out feelers to me considering that I played there. I thought that is what they should have done. But that was selfish on my part thinking Tupelo owed me something. Tupelo was actually the school that eventually helped me travel all over the country and helped me get into college basketball and the coaching profession. So it was me that owes a lot to Tupelo High School.” As Norwood prepares for his debut season in the high school ranks, he said he has more to give back than just teaching kids the game of basketball. “I still have some time to figure out how it is going to be,” said Norwood. “But I plan to make the most of it because I feel I have a lot to give back. I want to show kids and people in our community what I learned when I went away. And it’s not just about teaching kids basketball, but also about teaching them what it is like being a student and the desire to be a college student. I feel I can help paint that picture for them and help them pursue a college degree.” Reflecting on his childhood days, Norwood knows all about giving back to others and he was raised on those concepts thanks to his mother and father. And he said, it was always a full house in the Norwood family in his younger days. “I come from a great family and my mom and dad are awesome people,” said Norwood. “We had at least 17 people in our household and not all of them were part of our immediate family. And that’s not counting the relatives that came to live with us at some point. So my family has always been a giving family.” Also during that time is when Norwood said his fam-

ily’s faith and their relationship with the Lord grew. “I think what touched me, spiritually, the most then was that my dad was always a busy person,” said Norwood. “And he had to be to help take care of everyone and he was very well thought of in the community. But then he had a stroke and couldn’t do all the things he used to do. He could still fish, and he loves doing that, but many things he did before his stroke he couldn’t do anymore.” But as Norwood added, he witnessed his father become a happier man due to a stronger relationship

with the Lord. And it began to have an effect on Norwood’s life. “Being his son, I saw how much happier my dad was after his stroke because his relationship with the Lord was stronger,” said Norwood. “It got me to thinking when I was watching that part of his life. Then I started to realize what the Lord wanted from me. “And that is why I am so happy the Lord put me here to be the head coach at Tupelo High School. It gives me the chance to help as many kids as I can and even help grownups in our community. Plus, if I am doing what the Lord wants me to do in helping others, I also know I will be helped by others, too. There are so many people already in this community that have helped me and I owe them so much.” Looking at his new program, Norwood takes over a squad that reached the Class 6A state championship game thanks to a large group of seniors. Norwood will return some talent on the court, however, including the likes of sophomore Antonio Green. But like his responsibilities with the team, Norwood said his role in the community is much more than winning basketball games. During his playing days, Norwood said going to Tupelo basketball games was the thing to do and the gym was always packed out and supported well by the city. Including his duties of teaching and molding kids into college students, Norwood said he also wants to see the stands packed out and for the community to enjoy themselves at Tupelo basketball games. “When I played, people always came to our games,” Norwood recalled. “And it didn’t matter if folks were black, white, big, short or whatever. I want it to be that way again and for our community to pull together. I know I am ready for this year and I am willing to share our program with everyone. I know this can’t help but be a good experience because this is where the Lord wants me to be and that is why He put me here.” GT

Woody’s Tupelo Steakhouse

savor the meal, revel in the history By Amanda Jewel Wadley

W

oody’s Tupelo

Steakhouse came into the spotlight for some residents only after they appeared on Food Network’s Restaurant Impossible in March of 2012. What many may not realize is the Rex Plaza, where Woody’s is located, was once a popular place for celebrities such as Robert Duvall, Joan Crawford, Bert Lahr, and Tupelo native Elvis Presley. Feather Burns and mother Tricia, who now own and operate Woody’s, adore the legacy of the place. They have been sole proprietors of Woody’s since 1998, but called in reinforcements to renovate in December of 2011.

“Those shows can really be damaging,” Burns said of Restaurant Impossible. “I’m a control freak. And it’s like you’re in the center of a tornado and all around you is chaos.” Burns had no say in anything. Due to younger generations growing up in Tupelo not knowing the history of the Rex Plaza, the general consensus was Woody’s needed to be brought up to date and modernized. Burns said they realized that many people thought the décor was dated, but she thought it should match the historical aspects of the building. The Rex Plaza & Motor Inn’s history dates back to 1941. “This was a famous dining room at that time,” Burns said. “I mean on par with the Peabody. If you were famous and you passed through Tupelo, you stayed here. Johnny Cash, Junior Samples, Joan Crawford—Elvis Presley for the homecoming concert stayed here in what is now room 345. So I kind of felt that was in keeping with the history of the building.” Although it was difficult to endure at times, having the Food Network show come in and take over was something Burns can appreciate. “What I liked best about the experience was it forced me to go outside and see it from a completely different perspective. The opportunity for someone to give you a good, hard, honest appraisal is invaluable,” said Burns.

With the renovations to Woody’s also came a few changes to the menu. There are now several Sampler Platters which are smaller portions of main courses. One of these is the Salad Sampler consisting of Caesar Salad, Waldorf Wedge, and Watermelon Salad. The Caesar is made up of true Caesar dressing, aged Reggiano cheese and sourdough croutons. The Watermelon Salad is fresh, bright, and original with watermelon, feta cheese, Bermuda onion, Cabernet red wine vinaigrette and fresh mint. The combination is refreshing and light. Fresh bread and delectable blackberry butter is served alongside. The Under the Sea Sampler contains Alder Smoked Salmon, Shrimp and Grits, and Blackened Catfish. The spicy apricot glaze, bleu cheese orzo, and grilled asparagus make the Alder Smoked Salmon delicious and delightful. Blackened Catfish with crawfish pan sauce and fire roasted corn & peppers have a wonderful flavor with just a tiny kick. Both the Blackened Catfish and SautÊed Shrimp are served with cheese grits. These grits have a thicker yet appetizing texture than usual

grits, which is pleasing to the palate. A desirable main course is the Grilled Bone-In Pork Chop. Deliciously served in Pinot/Noir Green Apple Demi-Glace, it is tender and thrilling to the taste buds. Fluffy roasted leek mashers melt in your mouth complimenting this entrée along with a chef’s vegetable. The entire course is fresh and satisfying. A Dessert Sampler completes the experience with New Orleans Bread Pudding, Crème Brule, and Snickers Ravioli. (Snickers Ravioli was voted Mississippi Magazine’s best dessert for both 2010 and 2011.) This combination of sweetness ensures everyone gets a little piece of dessert heaven before ending the evening. Visit Woody’s Tupelo Steakhouse at 619 North Gloster. Lunch is Wednesday through Friday. Dinner begins at 5:00 Tuesday through Saturday, closing at 9:00 during the week and 9:30 on Friday and Saturday. Brunch is served on Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., then dinner from 4:30 to 8:00. Woody’s Lounge is open until midnight Tuesday through Saturday and provides karaoke Thursday nights and some Fridays.

kids and alcohol

AnheuserBusch Family Talk About Drinking program

N

o matter how old they are, you have the power to influence their decisions. And you can start right now. “Kids do listen to their parents,” explains MJ Corcoran, a certified parent coach. “The problem is, as they get older, they’re listening for different things. What worked when they were seven won’t work when they’re 17.”

Corcoran is the Director of Parent Education for the Ladue School District in St. Louis, Mo. and a spokesperson for the Anheuser-Busch Family Talk About Drinking program. She has more than 25 years of experience working with children and families in the St. Louis area. Our parents asked MJ some interesting questions, which she answers while explaining the “stages” of parenting and how understanding what to say—and when—can be the key to preventing underage drinking.

What is Family Talk About Drinking and how did you get involved? MJ Corcoran: Family Talk is an underage drinking prevention program that Anheuser-Busch started more than 20 years ago. They contacted me because they really wanted to expand the program and make it something that would be relevant to all parents, no matter how old their kids are. I thought that was a great approach and suggested that their materials should also show how parenting changes as kids grow up. I was excited because I saw they were very sincere in their desire to make a difference. The employees all said: “We’re parents, too. We’re proud that our company is committed to this.” You’re a parent coach. What does that mean? MJC: It means I have one of the best jobs in the world: I get to help strengthen the relationships between parents and children.

Q&A with Parent Coach, MJ Corcoran

October 2012

TEACHER – For ages 1-7 Explain parenting stages. What are they, and how do they relate to underage drinking? MJC: The concept of parenting stages is about adjusting parenting styles to match kids’ developmental needs. For instance, in the teaching stage, kids can’t really process abstract ideas. So, it doesn’t make any sense to tell them what could go wrong if they drink. We just say: “Alcohol is for adults only.” But as they get older and their brains develop, they start to notice inconsistencies. They may see teenagers drinking and they think, “Hey, what’s that about? I thought you said only grown-ups drink.” That’s when you’d want to transition into value statements like, “In OUR family, we don’t drink until we’re 21.” Your parenting approach to alcohol may need to change to accommodate your child’s new and more powerful brain. Describe the teaching stage. MJC: In this stage, you’re mostly providing expertise. You want to become their number one, go-to person for any questions about alcohol. Beyond that, it’s about setting clear boundaries (“It’s wrong to drink alcohol before you’re 21.”); checking for understanding (“How old do you have to be to drink alcohol?”) and being consistent.


Why is consistency important? MJC: At this stage of parenting, you have tremendous power because what you say has as much weight as what they experience. You’re creating their world for them. If you’re inconsistent about alcohol, they’ll walk away thinking that this whole underage drinking thing is kind of a gray area, and that’s not what you want at all. When young kids hear the rules, they have to know you really mean them and you really believe in them.

You’re setting a foundation. MJC: That’s exactly right. You’re building trust. If your child believes that he or she can go to you with questions about alcohol—even tough questions—and get honest answers, you form a connection over the issue. If you can do this early on, your child is more likely to share drinkingrelated information with you as he or she grows up.

FACILITATOR – For ages 8-13 What changes when kids get to be 8 or 9? MJC: They start to test boundaries and they begin to develop a really acute sense of fairness. If you have children this age, I’m sure you’ve heard them say things like: “How come you say we can’t eat food in the living room, but Dad does it?” or “Why do you make me go to bed at 8:30, but Tommy’s parents let him stay up until 10?” Things like that. How should parents respond? MJC: The first thing is just to realize that it’s all a normal part of growing up. As a parent, it might feel like you’re losing your influence, but you’re not. It’s just taken on a new form. Your job now is to keep the communication channel open and to help them analyze all these complexities and inconsistencies. You’re helping them understand new experiences and friendships, including negative influences regarding alcohol. You’re replacing hard-and-fast rules like “Kids don’t drink” with clear statements of your family values, such as: “In our family, we don’t drink until we’re 21 because it’s against the law.”

So, what you’re saying is that parents have to be willing to relinquish some control. MJC: Absolutely. It’s about letting go, but letting go with a purpose. Kids are navigating a whole new world of experiences and influences, and you want to make sure they’re handling it correctly, by integrating your values into their decisions. You’re kind of like their co-pilot: they get to fly the plane a little bit, but you’re there in case anything goes wrong. That’s pretty hard for most parents, isn’t it? MJC: Yes, it’s very hard. It’s almost the exact opposite of what we want to do, which is to hug them tighter and protect them from the world. Speaking of opposite approaches, what about the old “my way or the highway” tactic? MJC: First of all, it doesn’t work very well. If we keep setting stricter limits with even bigger consequences, we tend to cut off communication with our kids at the worst possible time, just as their peers are becoming a really alluring presence in their lives. Threats are very non-supportive and can actually be counterproductive. The other reason to resist that urge is that a certain amount of disagreement from our pre-teens is perfectly normal and healthy. So, we should encourage our kids to push boundaries? MJC: In a way, yes. As parents, we don’t like to hear our kids tell us “no.” But at the same time, we want them to develop of sense of independence. We want them to think for themselves in high-pressure social situations (for instance, when alcohol is offered to them), so we need to support their independent choices, even when that means they disagree with us. We can look for low-risk situations—like music or clothing preferences—and use them as opportunities to reinforce the importance of making smart, independent choices. It’s also a chance to help them understand how their decisions have consequences, good and bad.

tupeloparenting COACH – For ages 14-21 Maybe you can tell us: what’s going on in the head of a teen? MJC: Every kid is different, of course, but as a general rule teenagers have become truly independent thinkers. They’re constantly investigating new ideas and taking in outside thoughts that may be different from what they grew up with. They crave respect, especially from their parents. That may sound funny, but it’s true. The need they have to connect with their parents hasn’t disappeared, it’s just changed. How should parents approach the issue of drinking? MJC: At this stage, which I call the Coaching stage, your influence depends almost entirely upon the strength of the relationship with your child. It’s time to get really curious about their lives and start listening at a deeper level. The way to preserve your influence is to show you take their world seriously and you care about their pressures, their friends, etc. Ask open-ended questions about their opinions about alcohol. Can you give us some examples of open-ended questions? MJC: Most parents are pretty good at asking what I call checklist questions: “Do your friends drink? Will there be alcohol at the party? Have you ever been offered alcohol?” The yes-or-no questions. As we become more coach-like in our conversations, we want to ask questions that honor the independent minds of our kids and cause them to reflect and think about possible scenarios. For example, “What do you think you’d do if your best friend Jacob asked you to drink?” Or, “Can I ask your opinion; why do some teens choose to drink?” You should also let them know very clearly what they can expect from you, like “If your ride home has been drinking, you can call me and I’ll come get you, no matter what time it is.” What about once they turn 21; your job is basically done, right? MJC: No, not at all. Actually, this is one of the most critical times for parents to exercise their influence. You’re still a parent, even when your child becomes an adult.

It’s important to maintain that connection. The way the law works, one day they aren’t legal and the next day they are. A lot of young adults go out on their 21st birthday and make really poor decisions out of inexperience – they don’t know their limits.

A big part of the coaching approach is helping your children make a healthy and safe transition into legal-age adults who, if they choose to drink, do so responsibly. Parents should begin by modeling responsible behavior and habits when they drink, such as drinking in moderation, eating when they drink and using a designated driver. Discuss these behaviors with your child and help them continue to make smart choices when they are of legal drinking age.

What else can parents do? MJC: First, I’d encourage them to visit the Family Talk About Drinking page on Facebook. There’s a free parent guide they can download that covers parenting stages in depth and offers them a lot of tips and strategies they can start using, right now, to have more meaningful conversations with their kids about alcohol. And I’d encourage them to participate in the Family Talk parent community on our Facebook page. Ask questions, connect with other parents and post their ideas and concerns about underage drinking. I’m amazed by how much it helps parents just to see that they’re not alone. Any parting words for parents? MJC: You have the power! Research* shows that parents can significantly influence their children’s decisions regarding alcohol, and that’s what makes programs like Family Talk powerful resources. In fact, 68 percent of children ages 8-17 cite their parents as the No. 1 influence on whether they drink alcohol, a statistic that has been consistent since the survey began a decade ago. Family Talk is just one way to help parents leverage their influence. And it works, it really does. Download the Family Talk About Drinking Parent Guide at www.facebook.com/ABFamilyTalkyou!

realizing a dream with an artist’s touch

By Kelly Jo Brewer

A

Glover can be found with paint brush in hand on most days in her art studio, which is located upstairs in her Ripley, Mississippi home. Her studio invites the natural light of Mississippi to flood in from all directions, making it an artist’s dream, affording Glover the luxury to move her art around the studio to obtain ideal lighting. The studio is outfitted with paint buckets, rolls of canvas, and brushes galore but harbors no easel, because the abstract artist and her pieces in progress are usually found on her studio floor.

She enjoys the ability to easily move on and around her work. Glover prefers working on raw, unstretched canvas. The artist states, “This allows me the freedom to manipulate my canvas without restriction.” Glover, a native of Starkville, developed this method of painting while obtaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from Mississippi State University. She initially majored in Fine Arts with an emphasis in Graphic Design, because it seemed to be the most secure application of her creativity. However, as Amberly reached her upper level courses, she found herself signing up for every advanced painting class and private study available. This led the artist to the realization that her true artistic passion was painting, and she has not put her paint brush down since. While touring Glover’s studio, I was enlightened with

a sneak peak of her abstract horse series which was requested by On A Whim, a store which sells fine art and located in Germantown, Tennessee. I also was able to see the initial stages of a color field series, which was requested for this location as well. It’s true that every artist has his or her own artistic style, which explains why I found Glover walking on her paintings; even sitting on them while painting. This is a very important part of the creative process for her. This freedom allows Glover to literally live with her work in a way that a stretched canvas would not. One of the primary reasons for allowing the canvas to remain unstretched is to leave the work open to exploration by the viewer. Once she completes her masterpiece, the artist then adds her signature trademark of sewing only one edge of the painting to a bare, stretched canvas. Glover loves that the clean, crisp white canvas contrasts and frames her raw work. To Glover’s knowledge, no other artist is known for this mounting process. The waves, ripples, and tears in the loose canvas give the viewer a taste of the creative process and allow them to visually interact with the piece in an unparalleled way. It invites them into the work, allowing them to connect with the art on a more intimate level than a stretched canvas would. Currently, Amberly Glover’s abstract paintings can be purchased at On A Whim in Germantown, TN. Amberly Glover’s fine art will also soon be released in Mississippi galleries and other stores that sell fine art. The artist is open to commissioned works. You can contact the artist directly at amberlygloverart@gmail.com . GT

Celebrity Coaches.

October 2012


Celebrity Coaches launched in January 2005, but the Michael family was no strangers to the bus business. They had previously owned Pyramid Coaches in Nashville, TN. Jeff Michael commuted back and forth from Tennessee to Mississippi and eventually their love for Tupelo brought Celebrity Coaches here, isolated from all the countless bus agencies. The Michael family was onto something. One of my first questions to owner Jeff was what separates Celebrity Coaches from all the other bus agencies and he said someone once told him, “The key to success is doing what the other guys won’t do”. And that is exactly why this small town Mississippi business is anything but small, serving clients such as Brett Michaels with Poison, Tommy Lee with Motley Crue, and Kelly Clarkson to name just a few. Once I heard those names, of course, I wanted the scoop on the celebrities. Although he would not reveal much about his famous rock

tupelobusiness star clients, he did tell me that Brett Michaels, lead singer for Poison, is all business. Jeff Michael stated, “We are custom building these artist homes, which just happens to be a bus while they are on tour.” Some rock star clients have been known to ask Jeff, “What do ya’ll do down there in Mississippi?” Jeff quickly tells them he loves to ride 4-wheelers and shoot guns, which might explain sightings of rock star Brett Michaels, in the Tupelo area. Although the name Celebrity Coaches speaks for itself, this company provides much more than buses to the stars. Celebrity Coaches also provides a small bus called “The Traveler.” Mark Fisher who is in charge of maintance for the company said, “You can travel like a rock star on a budget in the traveler”. Celebrity Coaches offers transportation services for wedding parties, attending football games and any other driving excursion you can dream up. Oh, and if you dream of becoming a rock star, then you should definitely call the “pros” in for a one of a kind experience and a “home away from home” with Celebrity Coaches. GT

new chance for NMMC the first untreatable in state to offer new heart surgery device

E

arlier this year

North Mississippi Medical Center became the first hospital in Mississippi and west Tennessee to offer a promis-

ing new procedure for high-risk patients for whom heart surgery was not an option.

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement, which was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in November 2011, could be a huge breakthrough for high-risk patients who suffer from aortic stenosis, meaning that their aortic valve-the door between the left ventricle and the heart’s main artery-is too narrow to open all the way. These patients often suffer recurrent admissions into the hospital as well as repeated bouts of shortness of breath,

chest pain and fainting spells, until they die from the disease. Left untreated, a person’s heart could get larger until it has trouble pumping. Fluid could build up in the lungs, and the heart could begin to fail. The heartbeat could become erratic, and the person could suffer a heart attack and die. Aortic stenosis is similar to having a kink in a water hose. We have to relieve that kink to keep the water-or in this case, the blood-flowing. Open heart surgery is usually done to


repair or replace severely damaged heart valves, but unfortunately, not everyone is a surgical candidate. Until now, there was little hope for these patients, and their one year death rate is above 50 percent. The new transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) manufactured by Edwards Lifesciences allows a team of doctors to replace a diseased valve with no chest incisions. The new procedure is done by a cardiologist and cardiothoracic surgeon together in NMMC’s new hybrid operating room, which is a cross between a cardiac catheterization laboratory and a surgery suite. Through a needle-puncture of the leg, the cardiologist places a catheter (or tube) into the artery of the patient’s leg. A balloon catheter is then placed across the narrowed aortic valve and stretched open so the cardiothoracic surgeon can place the new heart valve. When the balloon is inflated, it pushes the new valve

into position and the diseased valve to the side. The balloon catheter is then removed, and the new valve starts working immediately. While open surgery will remain the treatment of choice for valve replacement, TAVR will be an excellent option for high-risk patients-those who are older or have other serious health issues. Studies have shown that for the first three years after a procedure, the outcome is the same between patients who had open surgery and patients who had TAVR. This life-saving TAVR procedure for high-risk patients is the first in a line of emerging cardiovascular therapies that will be offered by NMMC over the next several years.
