GET TO KNOW YOUR l ocal ADVISORS BRIAN SANDY THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS TO DO IN THE KANSAS CITY METRO AREA! WHAT TOPS YOUR LIST OF THINGS TO DO THIS SUMMER? Our family spends a lot of time outdoors! We spend a lot of our weekends out on the lake with our sailboat, weeknights at the neighborhood pool, and are looking forward to checking out the new splash pad at Lea McKeighan Park (our FAVORITE park in Lee’s Summit!). We will be moving close to Longview Lake this summer and are also going to enjoy the miles of trails for mountain biking and hiking.

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE FIREWORKS DISPLAY THAT YOU ATTEND EVERY YEAR? Our family started a tradition of escaping the craziness of life by heading down to Stockton, Missouri for a beautiful fireworks display over Stockton Lake surrounded by family. It’s a small town in Missouri that is a great getaway location only two hours from Lee’s Summit. I highly recommend this fun, peaceful lake for boating, fishing and great hiking!

WITH SO MANY FARMERS’ MARKETS IN THE AREA, IS THERE ONE YOU LIKE BEST? Downtown Lee’s Summit hands down! You can’t beat walking right across the street from your office to pick up local goods from local vendors! The meats, produce and flowers are always hard to pass up!

JOEL WILSON THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS TO DO IN THE KANSAS CITY METRO AREA! WHAT TOPS YOUR LIST OF THINGS TO DO THIS SUMMER? Going to watch the Royals. My daughter Lena loves going to The K; win or lose she always has a great time. Elizabeth and I get so much joy out of having that quality time with her. We are really excited to start a tradition with our newest kiddo, Maren.

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE FIREWORKS DISPLAY THAT YOU ATTEND EVERY YEAR? Our house faces Legacy Park and our neighborhood throws a huge block party for the 4th of July. We all camp out on the lawns, driveways and street to watch the fireworks. Friday nights at “The K” are a close second!

WITH SO MANY FARMERS’ MARKETS IN THE AREA, IS THERE ONE YOU LIKE BEST? The only farmers market that I’m familiar with is the one in downtown Lee’s Summit. Like most people, I’m kind of stuck in my ways. Until I meet someone that is passionate about the farmers markets outside of ours downtown, I will probably not explore the others.

Letter from the Editor WITH SUMMER IN FULL SWING AND FOUR KIDS AT HOME, IT FEELS AS IF I

Angela Broockerd, Natalie Fieleke, Allison Gibeson, Nicole Lavine CONTRIBUTING PHOTOGRAPHERS

Lindsey Bishop, Janie Jones, Nicole Lavine, Paul Versluis

HAVE SPENT MOST OF MY TIME IN THE CAR CHAUFFEURING THE KIDS TO AND FROM ACTIVITIES. Baseball fields, swimming pools, summer training programs and camps have consumed our days, and as constant and busy as it is, I know that I am going to greatly miss this someday. It has been a whirlwind of activity, and summer is always the time when working from home becomes a bit more difficult to balance. As I create this month's issue of the magazine from my home office, I realize that I’m feeling guilty that my kids are home and off-the-clock, probably playing video games. I tend to feel that internal struggle to set up  another activity for them because too much idle time bothers me, and in reality it shouldn’t. I know in my heart (and studies are backing me up on this): Kids need downtime. It’s incredibly healthy and necessary for kids to have time to recuperate from the busy schedules they keep. As a child, I had countless hours of downtime, and it helped me to become more creative in how I spent my time and allowed me to appreciate the fun stuff when it did occur.

My oldest son and I recently discussed how over-scheduled and busy his generation is

like I used to have of less scheduling and more fire-pits, catching fireflies, fishing in the neighborhood pond, riding bikes, putting on a sprinkler in the backyard for my younger ones, and yes, some laying around to do a little bit of nothing. And who knows, summer might just do what it was supposed to do—refresh us so we can take on our schedules once again.

CREATING A PAINTING ALLOWS ME TO ESCAPE TO ANOTHER PLACE, TO RE-LIVE AN EXPERIENCE, OR TO DREAM OF SOMETHING I HOPE TO DO SOME DAY, LIKE SAILING THE COAST OF ALASKA OR FLYING A P-51 MUSTANG.”

BEHIND THE BRUSH: PHIL SCHMIDT

12

Lee’s Summit Lifestyle | July 2019


PHIL SCHMIDT, A LOCAL ARTIST WHOSE WORK CAN BE SEEN AROUND LEE’S SUMMIT AS WELL AS THE GREATER KANSAS CITY AREA AND BEYOND, FIRST FOUND HIS LOVE OF ART AS A YOUNG CHILD DOODLING IN CLASS. That love of art continued to grow, as his mother fostered it by supplying him with drawing pads, oil paints and a canvas. “In middle school, I would strap my painter’s easel and canvas to my 10-speed bike and ride to the park to paint “en plein air” (in the open air) long before I knew what it was called,” Schmidt explains. After graduating, he spent most of his career in commercial art, putting fine art on the back burner for more than 30 years. It was only in 2014 that he began to seriously pursue a career as a fine artist, specializing in watercolor. Schmidt describes his art as representational realism. He explains, “There are lots of terms for artistic styles that people throw around, but the truth is, I really don’t think about that when I paint. I just do what comes most naturally to me, and that is to tell stories with my paintings. Creating a painting allows me to escape to another place, to re-live an experience, or to dream of something I hope to do some day, like sailing the coast of Alaska or flying a P-51 Mustang.” When choosing subject matter, Schmidt paints what he is passionate about: aviation, sailing, fishing, nature and wildlife; however, he is best known for his aviation art.

ARTIST’S PALETTE

(CON TI N U ED)

“When I was about 5 years old, I got to sit in an F-101 fighter jet that my uncle, an Air Force pilot, had flown to the airbase near our home. I was hooked on airplanes from that day forward. I earned a private pilot’s license several years ago, have owned my own airplane, and am currently building a two-seat kit airplane. So, naturally, aviation art is a perfect fit for me.”   Schmidt recently was honored to become a juried artist member of the American Society of Aviation Artists. Several of Schmidt’s framed reproductions are currently on loan at the Lee’s Summit Airport terminal building. He will be on site for an artist’s reception and solo exhibit during the Downtown Lee’s Summit “Fourth Fridays Art Walk” on July 26 at 239 S.E. Main Street. He is also a juried artist member of Summit Art. His art will also be on display at The Summit Art Festival in Lee’s Summit in October.

Lee’s Summit Lifestyle | July 2019


FOR BROOKE AND ANDREW WINFREY, OWNERS OF REDEEMED IN-HOME CARE, THE STORY OF HOW THEY FOUNDED THEIR BUSINESS IS A TAPESTRY WOVEN BY A GOD WHO HAS BLESSED THEIR FAMILY SO THEY, IN TURN, CAN MINISTER TO OTHERS. In 2013, Brooke’s grandfather, Errol Durbin, got the flu and began a downward spiral in his health. After multiple stints in rehabilitation facilities, he was unable to care for himself. Durbin ended up in a nursing facility, until his family discovered that his long-term care insurance provided for in-home care. Initially, in-home care seemed ideal for Durbin and his wife, until the family began to question the quality of care their family members were receiving. Most caretakers had no medical background, and the Durbins were missing medications to the detriment of their health. At this point, Brooke, whose professional background was in staffing and recruiting, realized that she was uniquely positioned to see both the needs of those hiring home health care providers and the families who needed care for their loved ones. “I set out on a mission to find quality individuals to provide care who would provide my loved ones, and yours, with safety and comfort in their own home,” she says. The Winfreys founded Redeemed In-Home Care in July 2017. Today, the business has grown steadily via word-of-mouth referrals and employs nearly 20 professional health aides who provide the kind of care that Brooke expects for her own grandparents, who are still living in their own home. “They love every single one of their caregivers,” she says. “They’re treated like one of the family. And from a granddaughter’s perspective, having my grandparents able to come over on a holiday just to visit with them, and not be their caretaker, is a blessing.” Every professional health aide hired by Redeemed In-Home Care has had a background check and a drug screening. Home health aides with professional backgrounds as registered nurses, certified medical assistants and licensed practical nurses ensure that clients receive excellent care. They assist with medication reminders, bathing, dressing and transportation to medical appointments, allowing clients to maintain a safe and independent lifestyle at home. Redeemed In-Home Care offers round-the-clock care, respite care (for family members needing the occasional break) and in-home services. The company accepts self-pay clients and long-term care insurance. CONTINUED >

Beet and Ricotta Gnocchi INGREDIENTS + 1/4 pound red beets + 1 pound ricotta + 1 large egg + 1 cup grated parmesan, plus more for finishing + 1 cup all-purpose flour + 1 stick unsalted butter + 8 sage leaves + 1/2 cup toasted walnuts, chopped + 1/2 tablespoon kosher salt + Freshly ground pepper PREPARATION Wrap washed beets in aluminum foil and place on baking sheet. Bake in 450-degree oven until tender for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and  cool. Peel skins using a paper towel. Add beets to the food processor and purée. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the ricotta, eggs, parmesan cheese and salt and pepper. Mix well. Add 1 cup flour to ricotta mixture and stir. Set mixture aside for a minimum of 2 hours in the refrigerator. To form the gnocchi, roll a walnut-sized piece of beet mixture into a nice oblong shape. Drop it into the bowl of flour, turning to coat all sides. Lay dumplings on a parchment lined baking sheet lightly dusted with flour.  Refrigerate for one more hour to firm. Melt butter with sage in a skillet. Let butter lightly brown until the sage leaves are crispy. Set butter aside. Slip gnocchi into a pot of boiling salted water until they float to surface of water, about 3-4 minutes.

FARM-TO-TABLE

(CON TI N U ED)

SPENDING TIME OUTDOORS AND ENJOYING FRIENDS AND FAMILY OVER GOOD FOOD AND DRINKS IS A GREAT WAY TO USHER IN SUMMER. This gorgeous farm-to-table dinner is set in the breathtaking Timber Barn space at Weston Red Barn Farm. From the fresh flower arrangements to the locally sourced produce and herbs, this earthy spread is brimming with character and flavor. The earthy ceramic and clay vases give the perfect vessel to fill with organic cut herbs and handpicked wild flowers. Amy Casin from Victoria Gardens arranged a beautiful medley of  queen Anne’s lace, mint, sage, rosemary, lavender, lamb’s ear, nigella, buddleia, oregano, dill, fever few, and geranium to name just a few of these beautiful blooms. We love a good home cooked menu mixed with a signature drink, so we brought in the expertise of local food connoisseur, Samie Laforce, to share some of her favorite farm-totable patio favorites and the creative beverage genius, Brandon Burke of Cordial Craft. What are we serving? We started with an Arugula Salad with Grilled Corn, Shaved Radishes with Zucchini and Goat Cheese and served with a Creamy Lemon Vinaigrette. Buttermilk Brined Fried Chicken was a must for this outdoor party which paired  nicely with locally sourced Roasted Heirloom Carrots drizzled with  Hot  Honey.  Peach Bread Pudding with Salted Vanilla Caramel Cream rounded out our meal for the perfect sweet treat.

Think twice before killing the golden goose Divorce and family law matters can be an emotional time. In many of these cases, parties are worried about custody and support of their children. Custody cases in particular can cause a widerange of emotions. While parties should never put their children in the middle, parties can sometimes get caught up in a contentious custody battle. This can cause some parties to become emotional and lose sight of what is important. Divorce cases involving spousal maintenance (formerly known as “alimony”) can also be acrimonious. There are certain scenarios where one party feels as if they will not be able to meet their needs without the financial help of their soon-to-be ex-spouse. In some of these cases, one of the parties might make more income than the other. In certain cases, one party might make substantially more. It might be that one party has education, skills and a work history that the other party does not have. However, in an effort at gaining an advantage in a custody or spousal support case, some parties are tempted to loft scandalous allegations. Sometimes, the allegations may have little or no merit. They may be exaggerated, embellished or untruthful altogether. But to gain an apparent advantage, or due to their anger or emotions, they are tempted to fling mud. It might mean that they file a motion in the 34

Lee’s Summit Lifestyle | July 2019

family court that contains scandalous allegations. It could be that they issue some subpoenas or take depositions based on these allegations. In other cases, parties might decide to call protective services (also known as DFS or family services) on the other parent when the children are not facing real risk from abuse or neglect. They might even call the police on the other parent when nothing has happened to warrant it. It could be that they begin contacting co-workers or involving the other party’s employer or business contacts unnecessarily. Obviously, if there are legitimate allegations, those need to be raised. At the same time, if a party is simply stirring the pot by raising scandalous allegations that have little or no merit, this is not helpful. The truth is that if they kill the golden goose, then what? Put simply, if the party who makes substantially more income has their reputation sullied in the community, or they lose their job, how does this help the situation? This can actually hurt the spousal maintenance case of the party bringing these scandalous allegations. For example, how can the other party pay spousal maintenance if they end up losing business (due to their reputation being harmed in the community) or, worse yet, they lose their job altogether? Even if they were to get custody based on

these scandalous allegations, if the other party loses business or their job, it can have the net effect of lowering the child support amount. More importantly, it can also impact the kids emotionally if they end up being interviewed by protective services or a guardian ad litem who is investigating the allegations. Psychologically, this can be damaging to the children and has the net effect of putting the kids in the middle of the dispute. Further, if the allegations are frivolous, it can impact the credibility of the party raising the allegations. Many family court judges are not impressed with parties who raise scandalous allegations that have little or no merit. This can result in a boomerang effect where the party who brought the frivolous allegations ends up being the one hurt.

“With 20 vets a day committing suicide, we at Camp Valor Outdoors look at this as a national tragedy--something more must be done,” Schwent says. “The struggle with feelings of hopelessness and over-medication, commonly prescribed by the VA, are real issues and raise legitimate concerns. It needs to be addressed.” Schwent specifically recalls a veteran who approached him at the end of a CVO event and presented him with a bullet. As the veteran began to share his story, it became apparent the veteran had planned to take his own life with that very bullet only weeks prior. “He told me he didn’t need this [bullet] anymore,” Schwent says with emotion. “He told me he added mercury to the powder to make sure it got the job done. He said the only thing that kept him from doing it was how much he was looking forward to this event. He just needed something to give him hope.” CVO has been so successful that many veterans who attend it often return as mentors to assist veterans at future events. “We expect our warriors to join the military and lead at a young age,” Schwent says. “Then they come home, and they don’t know what to do in the corporate world because (veterans) are not profit-oriented--we are mission-oriented. What they need is a new mission in life.” Veterans share a common bond regardless of when they served or for which branch they served. Connecting warriors in the outdoors has proven to provide effective healing in general. “There is no difference between an 85-year-old-Korean War veteran and a warrior who served in Iraq,” Schwent points out. “Because of that common bond all veterans share, today’s warriors are inspired by yesterday’s warriors.” “Making a difference in the lives of wounded, ill and injured veterans is the heart of everything CVO does,” Schwent says. “Whether it’s connecting warriors in the outdoors, launching a honey bee program,

or creating a veteran village for homeless warriors, it’s all about serving those who served and protected us.” On June 2, the CVO broke ground on the Veteran Village project in Holden, Mo. The 10 tiny homes undergoing construction are intended for homeless veterans in the Johnson County area. “It is our intent to fully rehabilitate these veterans,” Schwent says. “They will be better husbands, fathers, and members of the community. We have to help them break ground in a new area of passion. We owe them that for serving our country. That is our debt of gratitude.”

EACH LAKE OFFERS UNIQUE FEATURES, AMEY SAYS: + Raintree provides a place for families who want to ski or wakeboard, and the community pool is a wonderful place for kids and swim meets.

Windsor Estates

+ Lakewood offers many amenities including sailing, kayaking, golfing and even a beach.

+ Winnebago has private docks, skiing, wakeboarding and a yacht club for dining and entertainment. It has also recently expanded with a new dam and larger lake.

+ Lotawana is the largest lake that used to be a lake cottage subdivision of summer homes, but it has transformed into a year-round destination with newer homes replacing older ones. It also has a yacht club and offers private docks, skiing and wakeboarding.

+ Woodland Shores is a newer subdivision that allows for skiing and fast-boat water activity around Prairie Lee Lake, a public lake near Legacy Park that is slightly smaller than the others.

Summer is the perfect time to experience the lakes as the Fourth of July is typically their biggest day of the year with ski shows, fireworks shows, barbecues and fun activities for the kids. For more information about these homes and about life on the lake, visit leessummitlakehomes.com.

How Nina’s broken vertebra saved her from a stroke.

As a world traveler, Nina never thought a short trip to the store would threaten her life. That was before a car wreck brought her to our ER with a broken vertebra. The tests already being done for her emergency also revealed atrial fibrillation, which put her at risk for a stroke. Fortunately, because of our patented emergency prevention program we were able to connect her with our expert cardiologists who performed an advanced procedure to correct her heart rhythm. Now, the sky’s the limit for Nina’s big next adventure. Expert ER care that helps prevent cardiac emergencies. See more stories like this at HCAmidwest.com/CareConnect
