Lifestyle Letter

Letter from the Editor

M

y oldest child started his freshman year of high school this fall and is running cross-country. I have always enjoyed cheering him on and watching him run, but I have such a deeper appreciation and love for this sport after experiencing what it means to be part of a high school cross-country team. The sportsmanship, camaraderie, encouragement from upperclassmen and the peer support for each other throughout every step of a race has left me so inspired and proud to be part of something so positive and dynamic.

The thing that impresses me the most is the attitude and culture across the board with every school at every meet. These kids are a tight group and want the utmost success for their own school, but there is a sense of respect and appreciation for all runners regardless of where they are finishing and what school they are from. To see competing schools cheering in unison to encourage a struggling runner who isn’t from their own school or congratulating the success of a competitor at the medal ceremony is something I see on a regular basis, and it is such a lesson that can be applied in so many areas of life. The lesson to strive for greatness and reach your personal best, but to appreciate the good others are doing is so worthwhile. This month we are revealing our winners from our Readers' Choice competition, and I couldn’t help but think about my takeaway from high school cross-country when working on this issue. The winning businesses should be very proud of this accomplishment, and we commend each one of them for a job well done, but to even be nominated for this is a huge honor and shows the support and love of your business by the community. In every category, all businesses nominated were in good company, and regardless if you are the winning business or a runner-up, we can all celebrate each other from the “sidelines” for a job well done. Congratulations to our winners! We celebrate each one of you in this issue.

OVERCOMING THE WEAR AND TEAR HOW A TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT HELPED TURN BACK THE CLOCK

From a young age, Lexington resident Melody Noland has never known the meaning of the word “quit”. From manual labor on a farm to working most of her adult life operating heavy machinery, Melody has cultivated a strong work ethic that never shied away from any challenge that required getting her hands dirty.

The pain I was experiencing in my knee was some of the worst pain I’ve ever had to endure,” said Noland. “Even though I was in constant pain, I had to work through it and live my life. I couldn’t let the pain be my excuse to sit idly by - that’s just not who I am. Yet with this hard work and can-do mentality came physical consequences. Accustomed to such rigorous wear and strain on her body, Melody began experiencing excruciating knee pain. Living and working through this pain eventually became her way of life – but one that could not be willingly sustained. Finally, there came a point when Melody hit her threshold and the pain became insufferable. It was then she decided to schedule a

consultation with Gerald Dugan, MD, at Saint Luke’s Surgicenter – Lee’s Summit to weigh what medical options were available to her.

“After meeting with Dr. Dugan, he diagnosed that my knee was basically nonexistent,” said Noland. “All the cartilage had deteriorated, so my bones were constantly rubbing and forming grooves in each other. Realizing how bad my situation was, he suggested a total knee replacement and I was immediately on board.”


Once it was determined that Melody was a candidate for a total knee replacement, Saint Luke’s assigned Laurie Clipperton to act as her Nurse Navigator. Serving as a primary point of contact, Clipperton was in charge of readying Melody’s home for recuperation and making her feel completely prepared for her surgery and all post-op recovery.

immensely,” said Dr. Dugan. “Her surgery was a success and she is on her way to regaining her mobility and way of life.”

I worked closely with Melody to ensure she was comfortable and confident throughout the entire process, from beginning to end,” said Clipperton. “We became well acquainted, so I was able to understand what her needs were both before and after surgery, which made the process much easier for Melody.

Now, a few months removed from her total knee replacement surgery, Melody feels rejuvenated and thankful that she took control of her life back by not succumbing to the pain she was experiencing.

Once the time came, Melody was eager to undergo the surgery because she felt so confident in the care that Dr. Dugan, Nurse Clipperton and the staff at Saint Luke’s Surgicenter – Lee’s Summit had provided. “Melody came in with incredible health and a great attitude which helped simplify the process

As a result of Saint Luke’s outpatient services, Melody was back in her home within a day of having her surgery performed. She was able to begin her rehabilitation immediately with Clipperton by her side the entire time.

St. Luke’s is incredible and the doctors and staff are second to none,” Noland concluded. “I felt everyone served as an advocate for my health throughout this entire process and I’m thankful for all they’ve done. Now, when I get back to work, I won’t be hindered by the pain that I felt every day and can resume the way of life I’m accustomed to.

If you’re suffering from severe joint pain, don’t tolerate it for another day. To learn more about the Total Joint Program at Saint Luke’s Surgicenter-Lee’s Summit, contact Laurie Clipperton at 816-347-5844.

How long do we wait for a court judgment in Family Law? Stange Law Firm, PC

Going through a divorce or family law matter can be a tough experience. In some cases, parties are not able to settle their case and the case goes to trial. Trials in a divorce or family law matter can sometimes be done in a day. In other cases, a divorce or family law matter can take multiple days based on the circumstances. The more complex the case, the more time it might take to have the case heard. After a trial finally ends, many wonder how long it will take for the judge to make their decision. Many have watched courtroom television shows and may think that the judge rules from the bench at the end of the trial. If that does not happen, many can become very disappointed. The reality is that every situation is different. What happens can vary greatly based on the jurisdiction, venue and the judge who has heard the case. Thus, it is vital that a party speak to an attorney who is licensed and competent to practice law in their jurisdiction.

But in a general sense, parties oftentimes need to temper their expectations in terms of the length of time it takes for a judge to issue a judgment. In many instances, it can take a judge weeks, if not months, to enter a decision after the conclusion of a divorce or family law trial. When parties hear this, many are confused and dismayed. Many ask, “Why does it take so long many ask?” or “Why can’t the judge just rule from the bench after the trial?” Truth be told, the judge might not have made up their mind after the trial. They might need some time to think it over. If there was a lot of evidence submitted, the judge may need the time to review it all. The judge may want to go back and review the trial transcript as it relates to certain evidence. Judges also may have to make specific legal findings and findings of fact in a written judgment pursuant to the laws in the state in which the case was heard. Thus, it might be inappropriate for the judge to rule from the bench without issuing a written judgment that explains what they found and what law was relied upon. Some judges might feel that they may

be better able to explain what their findings are in a written judgment versus trying to explain it from the bench. There is also a risk as well that parties might be better able to underLee’s Summit Office stand the judge’s decision by reading it some time later versus hearing it when emotions are 256 NE Tudor Road still high right after a trial has ended. Lee’s Summit, MO 64086 Judges also can hear many cases, have Kansas City Office busy dockets and other important items on 2300 Main Street, Suite 948 their agenda, etc. This can result in a waiting Kansas City, MO 64108 period as well. These are just a few reasons (by appointment only) why the waiting time for a judgment may vary.

Open House

F

(CON TI N U ED)

or many area residents, living on a lake provides the tranquility of home combined with nature. Whether the house is at Lake Quivira, Smithville or Lake Lotawana, these resi-

dences often offer a slice of splendor. Over the decades, structures originally built for weekend getaways have been remodeled. Or, owners raze their homes to make room for more permanent living. In a few rare cases, lots lay empty. One such place graces the shores of Lake Lotawana. In 2007, on undeveloped waterfront, the owner built a three-story dream retreat which has the bones of a historic home and the skin of new construction. Its gray shingled exterior with white accents is reminiscent of the extraordinary homes which dot Lake Michigan and the Eastern Seaboard. A second story turret, clerestory dormer windows and curved porch railings add unmeasured style. This four-bedroom, four-bath house oozes nostalgia. It holds memories—and promises—of sunny summers and holiday family gatherings.

Open House

(CON TI N U ED)

The house faces east, so on hot summer afternoons, massive trees shade the dock. Sitting on the wraparound porch is like being in a treehouse—a perfect place to congregate for coffee, reading or wine. On lazy fall and winter weekends, the owners cuddle in blankets on the porch or curl before one of the home’s four fireplaces. With cozy fires in mind, the owner designed the house in the fall. She sketched her basic floor plan on a legal pad and referred to saved clippings for inspiration. An architect brought those drawings to life, and a friend helped with the design details such as trim, windows and interior transom doors complete with glass knobs. Interior colors, influenced by a quilt made by the owner’s great-grandmother, are light, cool and calm. A large wood-burning fireplace is a centerpiece in the main floor great room. A grand arched window faces the water, and beautiful views are the primary focus, connecting the indoors and out. The kitchen's gas fireplace is surrounded by ceramic tile. Painted shaker cabinets in light gray-green, a stunning marble countertop, white walls and lofty views create a cheerful gathering spot for family and friends. In the master bedroom, chairs flank another fireplace and cushioned window seats provide tranquil charm. An array of windows and the white beamed ceiling give the space airiness. The guest bathroom sink is set in a converted antique buffet. An elevator services all three floors, making it easy to carry laundry up or take swim and picnic supplies down to the dock. Walk through the landscaped lawn to reach the lake and explore the original summer house. Updates include a bath, kitchenette and TV, which make it a great party space. The nearby dock has slips for two boats; however, the owners have covered one well to use as a swim/sun deck. A three-car garage stands at the top of the property. It includes an upstairs bonus room which is ready to convert to an office, studio or playroom, continuing the dream.
