Bionic ankle restores mobility not experienced in decades By Amy Neal
Cliff Couch’s brand new bionic baby arrived Nov. 14 weighing in at 4.5 pounds. It makes 250 calculations per second, can be controlled by a smartphone app and has awoken muscles that have pretty much had the past three decades off. Couch is the first person in Missouri to be fitted with the BiOM, a prosthesis that uses robotics to replicate the movement of the foot, Achilles tendon and calf muscle. “It’s really a life-changing deal,” he said. “It just feels like my leg’s there again.

CHAPTER 4: Stonewall, Pint-Sized Spitﬁre of a Pup
After the Battle at Shiloh, the South was feeling as low as a bird dog with a head cold. The war wasn’t going as expected, and the loss at Shiloh stripped their sails. The South needed a boost, and they got one. Onto the scene rode a great Southern leader, clear-eyed, purposeful, Major General Thomas Jonathan Jackson, who earned the nickname “Stonewall” at the ﬁrst battle of Bull Run. He was a general of ﬂawless moral character, respected by all, and held in high esteem by the legendary Robert E. Lee, who would become the Confederacy’s topnotch commanding general.
The little dog sprinted out of nowhere, straight into the hearts of the battleweary men. They named the stray “Stonewall,” even though a gust of wind could have picked him up. The pooch never got very big, but he made a huge impact on the Richmond Howitzers, especially Sgt. John Van Lew McCreery, a kind gent Stonewall adopted as his master. Now Sgt. John was handy-dandy—he could shoe a horse and craft a clock that chimed. Always in need of a project, the Sarge taught Stonewall a trick or two, an entertaining diversion in the downtime between battles. To everyone’s delight, McCreery fashioned a tiny pipe and taught Stonewall to sit straight up on his haunches and hold it between his teeth during roll call.
those tales proved to be Stonewall’s downfall.

Son, neighbor save Dad’s life By Kathy Crawford The Gladstone City Council meeting Monday, Jan. 23, was packed with neighbors and family of a Gladstone teenager and his adult neighbor who received Citizen Commendations for helping save a man’s life. Those involved in the incident said 14-year-old Jared Ravenscroft was home on Halloween night last fall with his parents. A Chiefs game was on the television. Jared’s dad, Robert Ravenscroft, works at the Gladstone Walmart and had fallen asleep in the living chair. He was snoring. It was only when he stopped snoring that his wife and son became concerned. After trying to rouse Robert, checking for a pulse and finding none, Jared went next door to get help from neighbor Luke Whitley while his mother dialed 911. Robert had gone into cardiac arrest in his sleep due to undiagnosed and untreated sleep apnea. When Whitley, who knows CPR, arrived at the Ravenscrofts’ home, he remained calm but got busy trying to save Robert’s life. “Luke put Dad on the floor and cleared the room,” Jared said. Not knowing Robert’s outcome, Whitley moved Jared and his mother to another room then began CPR. Chief Michael Hasty, director of Gladstone Public Safety, said both Jared and Whitley remained calm as they did their parts to begin emergency medical service. Hasty said EMS does not begin with the 911 call or with the dispatcher — it begins with the citizens who are present before the 911 call is made. The first emergency responder to arrive on the scene was Gladstone Public Safety Officer Austin Reiter, and he began helping Whitley. Reiter also received a commendation Monday night. “All of our officers know CPR,” Hasty said. Robert was in a coma for eight days. His core body temperature was lowered the first 24 hours to give his heart a fighting chance at survival. He received about 7,000 total compressions, and about 300 of those were executed before Robert ever left the floor of his home. “The doctor tells me I was dead, and I’m still having trouble getting my mind around that,” Robert said. Hasty said CPR slows down the dying process.
The Kansas City Missouri Temple, 7001 Searcy Creek Parkway in Kansas City North, will be dedicated the first weekend in May. It is the second temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Missouri.
JAN. 9 COUNCIL ACTION The Gladstone City Council approved the following resolutions during its meeting Jan. 9, 2012: ■ Resolution R-12-1: authorizing the city manager to execute a sign-use agreement with the Northridge Neighborhood Group for the use of existing street signs. ■ Resolution R12-2: accepting a proposal from Joe Machens Ford-Lincoln Dealership of Columbia for the purchase of two Ford Police Interceptor all-wheel drive utility vehicles and emergency vehicle equipment for $57,274. ■ Resolution R-123: authorizing of a contract with Blue Nile Contractors not to exceed $330,026 for the Sewer Manhole Rehabilitation Project. ■ Resolution R-124: accepting work under contract with Rand Construction Co. for water plant efficiency upgrades and authorizing final payment of $15,599.25. ■ Resolution R-12-5: authorizing the sale of surplus city property Because he was asleep when he went into cardiac arrest, Robert doesn’t remember any of the activity. However, he said his chest was in a lot of pain when he came out of the coma, probably because of all the compressions. He
to the highest bidder at auction or by sealed bid, and authorizing the donation of surplus items to the Surplus Exchange and Secure the Call Foundation. ■ Resolution R-12-6: authorizing the city manager to amend the 457 Deferred Compensation Plan and Trust Agreement to include the associated HEART Plan amendments (including the Increased Benefit Accrual provision) through ICMA Retirement Corp.
Temple to open to public in April
■ Resolution R-127: authorizing an amendment to the Linden water tower antenna site lease with T-Mobile Central. ■ Resolution R-128: authorizing a contract with Site Rite Construction Co.of Kansas City for the emergency installation of stormwater system improvements not to exceed $33,080 for the Old Pike Stormwater Improvements Project CP1250. ■ Resolution R-12-9: ratifying and approving the purchase of a tract of land located at 605 N.E. 70th St. has since been diagnosed with sleep apnea. Still, the story could have ended differently if two people — a teenager and a neighbor — had not started life-saving measures before emergency responders arrived.
Open house and dedication dates for the Kansas City Missouri Temple have been announced by the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The public is invited to visit the temple during a two-week open house Saturday, April 7, to Saturday, April 21, excluding Sundays. Free reservations can be made through kansascitymormontemple.org. The temple will be formally dedicated Sunday, May 6, in three sessions broadcast to congregations of the church within the temple district. In conjunction with the dedication, there will be a cultural celebration featuring music and dance on Saturday, May 5. Latter-day Saints temples differ from the church’s meetinghouses or chapels where members meet for Sunday worship services. Temples are considered “houses of the Lord” where Christ’s teachings are reaffirmed through marriage,
baptism and other ordinances that unite families for eternity. In the temple, church members learn more about the purpose of life and strengthen their
commitment to serve Jesus Christ and those around them. The temple will not be open to the public in the future.

It may be a rare occurrence, but grocery prices in Missouri rose to more than the national average in the final quarter of 2011. And the USDA says prices will continue to go up this calendar year. The American Farm Bureau tracks grocery prices in their Market Basket Survey. It’s a review of 16 agriculture products frequently purchased by U.S. households. Missouri generally trends under the national average. But in the fourth quarter of 2011, the price of those 16 items in Missouri rose by $2.69 to a total of $52.01. The national average of those items declined $3.89 to a total of $49.23. “It’s very unusual for Missouri prices to trend higher than the national average on this quarterly ... survey,” said Diane Olson, director of promotion and education for the Missouri Farm Bureau. “There really is not an explanation that I can offer on that, because it’s just so unusual that our prices are higher.” Breaking down the basket, five of the six meat items were up in price in Missouri during the last three months
of 2011. That includes shaved deli ham, bacon, sirloin tip roast, boneless chicken breast, and ground chuck. All were higher in price. Of that meat group, chicken breasts were the price leader. “The poultry producers are not stocking as many chickens in their chicken houses, and so the end product is not as available,” said Olsen. According to the USDA, feed prices and the world wide demand for American meat products, especially beef, is driving meat prices higher, although the American Farm Bureau fourth quarter market basket survey found a decline in all meat prices on a national average. Also up in Missouri were russet potatoes, salad mix, grated sharp cheddar cheese, butter, orange juice and bread. Declining in price in Missouri were flour, whole milk and Red Delicious apples. Overall, market basket prices in Missouri were $4.14 higher at the end of 2011 than at the end of 2010. While it’s possible that Missouri may see lower grocery prices than the national average in the months to come, the USDA says don’t look for prices over all to go down soon. The department is calling for overall grocery price inflation of 3 to 4 percent in the coming year.

Chamber honors business work by Jesus Lopez-Gomez Last Wednesday, Jan. 19, the Gladstone Area Chamber of Commerce recognized some of the Northland’s greatest benefactors at its annual awards ceremony. Held at the Hilton in Kansas City North, the event honors the efforts of chamber members, as well as local businesses, for their contributions to Gladstone. The event closed by awarding the 12th annual Joe Wally Spirit award to former mayor Les Smith. The chamber gave its New Construction Award to a staple of national commerce and culinary tradition: McDonald’s. The new storefront on North Oak Trafficway was recognized for not only its aesthetic achievements but its environmentally conscious design that incorporates features such as LED lighting. “We’re really happy to be in Gladstone,” said Manager Jim Wagy. “My father built the old McDonald’s in 1970, and we’ve been looking for a new location for a while now. I think we’ve got a good one.” Gladstone Dodge received the Renovation Award in recognition of its new building and renewed landscaping. The city of Gladstone was honored as the Business of the Year for the support its staff provides the chamber at events. “Employees of this business serve on the Board of Directors, Bluesfest and Gladfest planning committees, Friday Fright Night and are involved in every possible function the chamber produces,” Sid Robbins said. Golf Tournament Co-Chair Trish Herzog was named Member of the Year. She was recognized for her willingness as a first-year member to assume a leadership position — and a successful one at that — as chairperson of the tournament, Herzog was responsible for acquiring several thousands of dollars in donations. The Chairman’s Choice Award was given to a member who had made herself available for a variety of chamber projects: Shelly True. Member of the Year went to Gary Lint, who was recognized for his intensity in scouting for new members as well as his friendliness toward guests in the role of ambassador. Next, Robbins called on incoming Chairman of the Board Vinnie Vaccaro for the passing of the gavel, in which the two passed an over-sized emblem of justice to signify the passing of responsibilities. “I’m truly humbled,” Vaccaro said. “This is the best chamber north of the river. I look forward to a great year.” Others recognized included: • Bluesfest Co-chairs: Hobart Mason and Chad Nichols; • Golf Tournament Chairs: Staci Streich, Trish Herzog and Vinnie Vaccaro;
• Gladfest Co-chairs: Shelly True and Jinny Kyle; • Awards Celebration Cochairs: Mary Cross and Anita Newsom; • Chamber volunteers: Bud and Marilyn Ahnefield, Wayne Beer, Tony Conforti, Mary Cross, John Garner, Richard King, Jinny Kyle, Kathy Nelson, Anita Newsom, Freddie Nichos, Mary Olshefski, Kevin Phillips, Jim and Mary Roy, Carol Rudi, Jeana Tetzlaff and Shelly True; • Retiring board members: Bill Arbuckle and Ken Honeck; • Ambassador of the Year: Staci Streich
Joe Wally Spirit Award
Before Robbins introduced Smith with the Joe Wally Spirit Award, he brought forth the 11 recipients of the award who had preceded Smith. Among them was last year’s winner, Mark Tomes. “I’m not nearly as involved with the city as Les,” Tomes said. “Mine has been in scouting, the soccer league and working with the schools like St. Pius X. Scouting is at the core, though.” Through Tomes’ leadership, a scholarship program was established to grant about $10,000 worth of financial aid to students. “(Gladstone) is a really friendly community,” Tomes said. “It’s run efficiently. They do it right. You gotta give praise to (Smith) for that. He’s really done a great job.” Smith, on the other hand, prefers to defer the acclaim. “First and foremost, it takes a lot of people to make things happen,” Smith said. “I’ve been a small part of everything.” However, Smith’s career details achievements that have been the very opposite of small. Since the first time he was elected to the City Council in 1984, he has served on a number of committees including the Gladstone Economic Betterment Council and the Gladstone Planning Committee. He has done everything from work in Parks and Recreation to serve as chairman of the board for the chamber. Smith retired last summer from his third term as mayor. While in this position, through a divided council, he provided the leadership for the Gladstone on the Move initiative and ensured the success of several ballot initiatives that would improve the safety and infrastructure of Gladstone. Nevertheless, Smith insisted on sharing his spotlight if others insisted on lending it to him. During his speech, he spoke reverentially of the city workers who lent their efforts to his ideas. “People like me get the awards, while people like them do the work,” Smith said. Smith has moved from Gladstone to be with his family in Mission, Kan., where his wife serves as city administrator. He also is the owner of Gladstone Bowl and an adviser for the chamber.

Cliff Couch compares a his Renegade prosthetic, left, to his BiOM. After receiving the new battery-operated leg, which uses electro-mechanic components to normalize the user’s gait, Couch has had to relearn how to do many activities he had become accustomed to doing without an ankle after a below-the-knee amputation at age 20.

“The farther I ran, the fast I ran. It was like remembering what it was like to have an ankle again.”
When Couch first tried out the BiOM, he said he realized right away he wasn’t bobbing with it as he stood. Then he started to walk, and then to run. “The farther I ran, the faster I ran,” he said. “It was like remembering what it was like to have an ankle again.” On the way home he cried as he thought about how long he had been without an ankle and what it was like to have one again. McCarthy said Cliff’s reaction was common. Three “wows” hit new users of the BiOM, McCarthy said. The first is when the prosthesis is first tuned to the user’s gait and they feel the power of the device, which combines hardware, software and electromechanic components. The second is when they leave the lab and go home and move around in their home environment. The third is when they take off the BiOM and switch back to whatever conventional prosthesis they had been using. A number of soldiers who have had a below-the-knee amputation after serving in Iraq or Afghanistan have received a BiOM, and Couch said he was glad there was now an option available to amputees in the military that would allow them to continue their service. “Prosthetic innovation has traditionally, or historically, always occurred during wartime,” McCarthy said. “Prosthetic care is one of the three areas of medicine that makes fairly substantial improvements during combat, and it’s principally because of the nature of combat-related injuries.” The cost of Couch’s BiOM, which iWalk literature puts in the $50,000 range, was shared by the
Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs. The BiOM is being redeployed with U.S. soldiers, but the prosthetic is not combat ready because of durability, battery life and energy source concerns, McCarthy said. But it is ready for stocking-footed strolls around the house, going up and down the basement steps, hitting the dance floor, a trip to the bowling alley or a game of basketball at the Gladstone Community Center. Couch as tested all of these activities with the BiOM and chronicled his experiences on Facebook under the name Kansas City’s First Bionic Man after getting the prosthesis from his “leg man,” Ken Kessler at Kansas City Artificial Limbs in Independence. Couch has been able to get up to nine hours out of a battery charge, but he said he always has a spare battery with him just in case. “When the battery dies in the leg, it’s like you’re walking down the street and step in a mud puddle and have five pounds of mud stuck to your leg,” he said. Couch had hoped to be able to run a 5K this spring, but he said that goal had to be pushed back to give him more time to get used to using some of his muscles. “It’s going to take longer to get my body in shape than I thought it would,” he said. Instead, he’ll focus on other projects as April showers give way to May flowers. With the BiOM, he walked all around his backyard for the first time since moving in five years earlier. After surveying the property, he decided he would clean up the yard once winter is over.

Over the past three years, Citizens Bank & Trust has donated $13,500 divided among three north Missouri food banks, including Harvesters Community Food Network. Here, Suzy Strohm, center, vice president of community banking, accompanied by Rob McCaslin, senior vice president of commercial banking, presents this year’s donation to Jamie Roach, major gifts manager for Harvesters. Although most of the bank’s locations conduct annual holiday food drives supporting local food pantries, 90 percent of these pantries also receive supplies from Harvesters or another regional food bank. The donated funds come from not mailing traditional holiday greetings and gifts to clients and vendors. This year, the bank also emailed more than 18,000 of its clients asking them to support one of the three major organizations serving north Missouri.
