J&D Supply wins honors for Vilonia community Mary Kate Mansfield Features intern

David Bowie, not to be confused with the famous singer from the 1980’s, is the co-owner of J&D Supply in Vilonia along with his son-in-law, Jody Lawrence. This business owner is not just a construction guru, but more of a jackof-all-trades. He worked for Enco, had five different military operation specialties while in the U.S. Army, including mechanic and combat engineer, studied computer information at Pulaski Technical College, studied history at the University of Central Arkan-

sas and is an electrician by trade. So when Bowie says he knows what he’s doing, people tend to believe him. Because of his expertise in so many areas as well as his friendly demeanor, the people of Vilonia have come to trust Bowie and his employees with their construction-like needs which is how J&D Supply won favorite Vilonia business in the Best of Faulkner County awards this year. Just a quick scan through the company’s reviews on its Facebook page render this award as no surprise, given the consistently great accolades from the people of Vilonia. Bowie said of his company’s consis-

tently great customer service, “We tell all of our guys that when a customer comes in, we help that customer. We try to get to the next one as quickly as possible, but we want to help that customer. Because in 10 years we’ve come to know everybody — and so you have to know your customers — we know them all by name.” Not only do his employees try to provide the best possible service to their customers but they also have great relationships with their co-workers, sometimes having a mentoringtype relationship with the younger employees. This mentoring aspect of J&D supply is an effort to bring back some

of the young people who leave the community for college or other schooling and bring their useful services back to the Vilonia area. Former employees of J&D Supply include: a lawyer; a state trooper; and an air traffic controller, just to name a few. J&D Supply gives back to the community every chance it gets, whether it be sponsoring a softball team, working with the agriculture department in the Vilonia school system, sponsoring a fishing competition or their annual customer appreciation hoedown.

J&D SUPPLY, From Page 3

The company works to leave a legacy of involvement in their community of Vilonia. In fact, community was part of the reason J&D Supply was founded 10 years ago. Bowie and his Lawrence were doing some home renovations on Lawrence’s house and discovered that a local hardware store was lacking in the community of Vilonia, leaving them with the only option of driving all the way into Conway every time they were in need of supplies. This need left them determined to keep more business in the community of Vilonia, if only for the convenience of not having to drive all the way to Conway every time someone needed supplies for their small farm or DIY kitchen renovation. The store itself is a maze of tools, gardening supplies, plumbing gadgets and has

just about everything, including the kitchen sink. A virtual wonderland for any handyman, coupled with the great customer service and friendly disposition of many of its employees, it seems that J&D Supply could be counted a successful small business, not something easy to claim in this economy. Concerning the economy and small businesses Bowie said, “I think we’re getting hit very hard with taxes and what that does, is most people are working on some kind of margin and taxes are steadily eating into those margins, and in 10 years we’ve seen it take a major swing.” The community of Vilonia is a great part of the success of this business, Bowie said, and is helpful in many ways to the growing of his business, although it’s common knowledge that their annual hoedown is something to not be missed.

Salem Place’s charismatic volunteer Mary Kate Mansfield Features Intern

When many people think of Christmas, they may often think of the jolly old man that delivers presents on Christmas Eve, but when the residents of Salem Place NursingRehab Center think of Christmas, they think of Santa in shorts. Ed Welsh is behind the face behind the Santa for Salem Place, but Welsh convinced the residents that Santa was from Florida (which explains the shorts). This joke is classic Ed Welsh. A dedicated volunteer, he jokes with the residents, sings to them, bonds with them and tries to improve their quality of life just by making them laugh and smile. He started volunteering at Salem Place when his mother and

father were residents there and just continued from then on. Four and a half years later, Welsh still volunteers six days a week, spending his days spreading his infectious personality around to the residents. A unique part about Welsh’s bonding process with the residents of Salem Place (especially the new ones) is his acknowledgement of feelings that residents might have of anger, resentment and abandonment. He takes the time to acknowledge those feelings and tries his best to help them move past that. Welsh tries his hardest to change the lives of the residents but he also knows that the residents have impacted his life as well. “So, it’s changed my life,” he said. “I’ve always been this way, so it’s changed my life be-

how they’re doing, that’s when they say ‘hey thanks;’ ‘I never thought my mom could do that;’ or ‘I never thought grandma could do that’.” One of his favorite techniques to his volunteer work is to have the residents acknowledge their past, but focus on their future in terms of how their past will affect their future. This unique take on bonding with the residents has proven highly effective, or maybe it’s just Welsh’s charming personality. In an attempt to better understand the everyday struggles of the residents, he spent a whole eight hours in a wheel chair with the end goal of being able to relate to the residents more effectively. This antic is only one of the many that can be associated with Welsh at Salem Place. Not only did he spend the day in a wheelchair, but he also learned basic sign language so he could better communicate with the residents who were harder of hearing, since

communication is such an important part of life to them. It’s no mystery that Welsh loves the residents as much as they love him, and he is highly protective of them and their well being. He takes the time to gain their trust and respect and only asks in return that they laugh at his jokes. In his quest to gain the trust and respect of

the residents, he also learns from them. “I learn about life, and there is a correlation of the lives that they have gone through and the lives that somebody like me and my wife live. But you know what? The bottom line doesn’t change. You get back out of life what you put into it.” Welsh said. Because of his association with seniors and his close relationship

with so many, he also was invited to lecture a nursing class at the University of Central Arkansas, imparting his knowledge of the inner workings of a nursing home/rehab center as well as helpful ways to bond with residents. It would be safe to say that the residents love Welsh just as much as he loves them and he wouldn’t have it any other way.

Pro Tips:

How to avoid hot weather automotive breakdowns Log Cabin Democrat

WRECKER SERVICE WINNER PRO AUTO

RUNNERS UP STEVE’S AUTO CENTER OF CONWAY HELTONS

When the weather warms, many people take to the outdoors to enjoy the sunshine and rising temperatures. Summer road trips or vacations are the norm, but it is important to realize that hot weather can take its toll even on a new, well-maintained vehicle. High temperatures can cause all sorts of

damage to a vehicle, from zapping battery power to overtaxing the cooling system. Recognizing potential hotweather risks and performing routine checks on the vehicle are the keys to keeping vehicles in top form.

Battery

Excessive heat can shorten the life of a battery because it causes

battery fluid to evaporate more quickly. This, in turn, can damage the internal structure of the battery. AAA reports that car battery issues are the most common breakdown calls. It’s a good idea to top off a battery with distilled water if it is the kind that requires it. Low-maintenance batteries may not have filler caps and will not require water. Inspect the

battery for corrosion and leakage of battery acid. This could be a sign that the battery is getting old and will need to be replaced.

Cooling system

Cooling systems work hard to keep the flow of air to the engine and prevent it from overheating during warm HOT Page 9

Guide to end-of-summer sales Log Cabin Democrat The end of summer is marked by mixed feelings. Come the end of summer, vacations may be coming to an end as children ready themselves for a new school year. But shoppers know the end of summer is an ideal time to find great deals on an array of items. Although back-to-school sales flood the marketplace this time of year, plenty of other sales take place in the final weeks of summer — and consumers can save substantial amounts of money if they know where to look.

Outdoor furniture

As stores clear out their seasonal items, shoppers can score big deals on patio sets and other outdoor furniture. Retailers need to make room for snowblowers, rakes, shovels, and holiday mer-

seasons. Compromised cooling fans or lack of coolant can be troublesome. To avoid overheating, check coolant levels before getting on the road. In addition, have the cooling system checked by a trained mechanic prior to the summer driving season. It’s a small price to pay to avoid extensive engine damage from overheating.

Tires

Hot weather causes the pressure inside of tires to rise. Overinflated tires can wear down prematurely or result in blowouts. The Car Care Council recommends checking tire pressure routinely in the summer, when tires are cold. Follow the guidelines in the owner’s manual for recommended air pressure. Look for improper tread wear, weak spots or other tire damage that may end up causing flats.

chandise, so shoppers are bound to find discounted tables, chairs, fire pits, umbrellas, and chaise lounges. Individuals can use this opportunity to update wornout patio furniture and other seasonal items they can store over the winter.

Camping/hiking equipment

Only the most devoted campers camp out when the temperatures begin to dip, so consumers can use this opportunity to grab camping equipment before it’s gone for another season. Tents, flashlights, cooking gear, backpacks, outdoor recreational items, such as kayaks or fishing tackle, water bladders, and heaters may be available at steep discounts.

Grills

Backyard barbecues are a staple of summer. If your barbecue or outdoor cooking equipment experienced heavy use throughout the summer, now is a

Fluid levels

Hot weather can put extra demand on all fluids and engine components. Check transmission fluid, power steering fluid, brake fluid, and engine oil levels. Top off or change when necessary.

Pack with breakdowns in mind

Plan ahead for potential summer breakdowns by bringing along water, snacks, sunscreen, and an emergency medical kit. Be sure mobile phones are fully charged and that the number of a tow service or roadside assistance crew is entered into your list of contacts in the event of an emergency. With warm-weather road trips beckoning, it’s time to plan accordingly to prevent breakdowns that can derail fun.

great time to shop sales on grills and outdoor cooking gear.

Travel

Consumer Reports says that prices tend to drop on airfare, hotels and theme parks after Labor Day. Deals on luggage also can be had once summer travel season ends. Tuesdays are a great day to book airline tickets because they tend to be cheaper on Tuesday than other days of the week. Travelers can use this information to their advantage, booking trips to destinations that have super weather throughout the fall, such as Hawaii or the Mediterranean. Caribbean destinations also are good choices, though travelers should consider travel insurance to protect against hurricane-related cancellations.

Vehicles

Many dealerships tend to begin dis-

counting cars when new models begin to debut in August and September. The longer a dealership holds on to a vehicle, the more money it tends to lose. Prospective car buyers may be able to negotiate a good deal this time of year, ultimately walking away with a brand new vehicle with a solid warranty. It’s not unheard of to receive a discount of 15 percent or more on previous year models.

Spa treatments

Many spas have begun discounting massages and facials at the end of summer, according to the International Spa Association. Shoppers can use this opportunity to try out new spas and save some money in the process. In addition to these discounts, bathing suits, summer clothing, lawn and garden equipment, and pool/spa items may be discounted come the fall.

Physical examination tips Log Cabin Democrat School time requires having all of the necessary supplies, clothing and gear ready for the year. In addition, preparing for a new school year often involves providing updated physical health information to the school administration. The requirements for health screenings and reporting may vary between school districts. Some physical examinations need to be conducted annually, while others may only need updating at certain intervals, such as when kids transition from elementary school to middle school or middle school to high school. Updated physical forms also may be required at the start of a sports season. Health screenings are intended to detect problems that may interfere with learning. Physical exams may indicate issues that can hamper progress or shed light on undiagnosed problems that may require further assessment and necessitate customized learning plans to help students succeed. Physical exams are also a way to ensure students’ im-

munizations are up to date. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Health, physical exams typically are completed by students’ primary care providers. Some school districts offer free or lowcost health assessments through school providers as well. Students who will be traveling for school may be required to meet the health requirements of their destination country. For example, medical students admitted to a Canadian university may be required to get a medical exam, according to the Government of Canada. Visiting the doctor, nurse practitioner or a school-provided medical professional may not make school-aged children too happy. To make the process go smoothly, consider these suggestions. • Work with physicians who have access to electronic health records. EHRs are secure technology that provides easy access to vaccination records, health history, appointment reminders, and even prescription information. Some providers even make it possible for pa-

tients to directly access their health information through a secure login, helping save time. • Make appointments during school hours. Afterschool appointments are peak times for pediatric offices and medical clinics. Sign students out of school early to visit the doctor for medical exams. The staff likely will be less harried, and you can spend more time asking questions and completing forms. Schools may not count the absence if a doctor’s note is provided. • Don’t forget the forms. Bring the right paperwork so that the staff can fill out what is necessary for the school, camp or sports league. • Know your insurance guidelines. Physical exams may be part of routine well visits. Insurance companies institute their own policies regarding how frequently physicals can be conducted (usually annually). Be sure to schedule the appointment accordingly. Physical examinations are on many parents’ back-to-school to-do lists. Certain strategies can make physicals easier for adults and children alike.

Help children feel comfortable at the dentist Log Cabin Democrat Routine dental examinations and cleanings are an important component of oral healthcare for both children and adults. However, many children do not visit the dentist until well after the time recommended by medical and dental professionals. Parents may be unaware of the dental health timeline, or they could be reluctant to bring their children for fear of how their kids will behave — especially if parents are harboring their own apprehensions about the dentist. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child go to the dentist by age 1, or within six months of the eruption of his or her first tooth. Yet, according to a survey commissioned by Delta Dental Plans, the average age of a child’s first dental visit is 2.6 years. Parents worried about how their kids will respond to the dentist can take the following steps to acclimate kids to dental visits to make them more comfortable during their appointments now and down the road. • Be a positive role model. Children frequently learn by example. If they see their parents being diligent about dental care, they’re more likely to embrace proper oral hygiene. Bring children to your

own dental appointments so they understand the process and become familiar with the type of equipment used. • Stick to the first-tooth milestone. Take your child to the dentist on or about when his or her first tooth erupts. Early dental visits will get kids used to going to the dentist and prevent minor problems that may lead to more complex dental issues. • Read books about the dentist and role play. Information can allay kids’ fears about the dentist. Read books together about dental visits and act out possible scenarios with your kids. Give kids toy dental health tools and have them practice exams on you and vice-versa. • Be supportive and instill trust. Avoid telling your child that everything will be okay. If a procedure is needed, this could affect his or her trust in you and make the dental office an even greater source of anxiety. Simply be supportive and offer a hand to squeeze or a hug if your child needs you. • Consider using your dentist. Some parents like to take their children to a pediatric dentist, but it may not always be necessary. Many family practices cater to patients of all ages, and the familiarity of the office may help make children feel more comfortable. Speak with your dentist about the ages they see.

• Steer clear of negative words. Michael J. Hanna, DMD, a national spokesperson for the AAPD, suggests using positive phrases like “clean, strong, healthy teeth” to make the visit seem fun and positive rather than scary and alarming. Let the office staff come up with their own words to describe processes that won’t seem too frightening. By employing these techniques, kids’ dental visits can be more pleasant for all involved, paving the way for a lifetime of healthy teeth.

Diagnosing the differences between PT and OT Log Cabin Democrat The body is a complex organism that is the sum of all its parts. When a portion of the body is not working optimally, pain, lack of motion and a host of other concerns can arise. At some point in their lives, many people will visit therapists to restore functionality to a part of their body that was affected by injury. Therapists come in various types, including physical therapists, or PTs, and occupational therapists, or OTs. Some may not understand what distinguishes a PT from an OT. Although physical therapy and occupational therapy are sometimes used interchangeably, they are actually two different, but similar, disciplines. According to St. Catherine University, PT involves treating the actual impairment, while OT helps the patient complete necessary tasks with the impairment. To

Despite their differences, PT and OT do overlap, and some therapists may work together to make sure there’s a seamless integration of practices. break this down even further, consider the following scenario: An athlete stumbles on the field, injuring his knee in the process. While the injury does not require surgery, it is severe enough for bracing and requires that the athlete not apply pressure through walking. He visits a PT to help determine which kinds of assistive devices might remedy the situation as well as which exercises and stretches can work the knee safely so that it remains limber while healing. The OT instructs the athlete on the proper way to use crutch-

es, canes or a wheelchair while the knee remains immobile. The OT also can illustrate how to get in and out of the shower or walk up and down stairs with the adaptive devices. While PT may be focused on treating the injury itself, OT is more likely to help the patient adapt to home and work environments to allow for a better quality of life and help the injured person maintain his or her independence. Some OTs will do on-site assessments and help with those modifications. Despite their differences, PT

and OT do overlap, and some therapists may work together to make sure there’s a seamless integration of practices. Both PTs and OTs are involved in injury recovery or in assisting individuals with life-long disabilities enjoy the highest quality of life. Both professions require meeting high education standards with knowledge of physical anatomy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, some entry-level occupational and physical therapists hold master’s degrees, but a vast majority of these positions require a doctoral degree in the respective field. However, the schooling required can be worth it, as both fields are expected to grow considerably in the coming decades. Physical therapists and occupational therapists can help people feel better faster and help injury sufferers maintain their independence through an injury or disability.

Holly’s named home cooking best choice Mary Kate Mansfield Features Intern

Owner of Holly’s Country Cookin’, Holly Hayes, for 19 years has been a fan of producing great food for the Conway community in a personal and smalltown way, and this year has been no different. The small staff at Holly’s showed their aptitude and skill by winning Overall Restaurant and Home Cooking favor in this year’s Best of Faulkner County contest. This restaurant has a great casual feel that serves everyone from judges, accountants, retirees, homesick college students and so many others. Hayes started out as a stay-at-home mom and was encouraged by her Great Aunt Bobby of Bobby’s Country Cookin’ in Little Rock to open a restaurant. “I was a stay at home mom for years and that’s what my mom did and her mom,” Hayes said. “It’s just been what the women in our family always did.” After being reviewed by TV show “Arkansas Pie,” Holly’s coconut meringue pie came to light as a favorite on the menu. “Well, it’s been in the family forever, that recipe has,” she said. “I hear people come in and go, ‘oh that tastes just like what my grandmother used to make.’” The nostalgia factor is something Hayes depends on in serving her food. The menu is made up of favorites from mother’s and grandmother’s kitchens throughout the country, “comfort food,” if you will. Location in a college town especially helps business for Holly’s, given the number of out-of-state

students who are far from home and just need a big bowl of mac and cheese that tastes like mom’s on a bad day. The favorite part of her job, according to Hayes, is watching her customers move through the seasons of their own life. “We have a lot of kids who went to college here come back years later, ‘Oh, I had to come to Holly’s’ or ‘I came back into town and I had to come to Holly’s, they were like my family,’ and so it’s cool because the moms will come in with their babies and then they come in when they graduate high school — you know its just watching all the kids grow up,” Hayes said. “They come back and bring their families back. It’s been really cool to be part of that.” Hayes attributes people returning to great food and great customer service. Hayes runs a very small operation and has virtually no change in her employees, which only makes the experience of going to Holly’s even more personal. As an establishment, Holly’s also keeps the experience personal by only serving lunch, which takes the stress off the employees to have to serve more than one meal, and allows them to chat and visit with the customers. The menu consists of mostly home-cooked favorites — mac and cheese, fried chicken and potato casserole. But if you ask Hayes, she would rather have an order of the fried okra. The thing that customers can count on when they walk into Holly’s is a friendly smile, good food and the feeling of family. The feel of Holly’s is something akin to a family gathering eating at all different tables laughing

Mike’s Place is a wellknown institution around the Conway community and for good reason. The eatery has consistently won award after award since it opened 12 years ago, and this year is no different. After winning awards for best business lunch, fine dining and best seafood (no easy feat in a land locked state) and coming in as runner up in five more categories, Mike’s show its aptitude for good food once again. Owner Mike Coats is a veteran cook originating from Louisiana and is a pro at bringing the coast to Arkansas with innovative seafood recipes that will knock your socks off. He started the journey to the top of the Conway restaurant scene in 2004 when he pushed boundaries, with the help of the citizens of Conway, to be the first restaurant in Conway to sell alcohol to its patrons despite dry county laws in Faulkner County. Though Mike’s Place was

able to break into a new era of dining in Faulkner County with their liquor license, according to Coats only 14 percent of sales are alcohol, which only speaks to the quality of their food. The many people behind the food of Mike’s Place share similar stories. Coats himself, throughout college, managed the Conway Country Club as well as worked at the Little Rock Country Club where his interest in the hospitality industry started. He is able to keep the customer service and the food fantastic and consistent and attributes success the staff. “We’re fortunate to have a strong employee base in the area, we have virtually no turnover,” Coats said. “ I don’t hire a server a year, so we’re really fortunate. Twenty percent of my staff has been with me since we opened 12 years ago, and half of those were with us at other concepts.” In the rare event that Coats has to hire a new staff member, he reaches out to the community of Conway, most of the time to one of the three colleges in the area. Coats feels that the young people in

the area are highly important to his business and their own personal success. In the same way he attributes a lot of Mike’s Place success to his staff, Coats also takes cues from the community and his guests. For instance, the salmon is grilled over an oak plank rather than the usual cedar plank, giving the salmon a taste unique to only Mike’s

Place and its innovative kitchen staff. The salmon is only one example of the high-quality experience that Mike’s Place gives. All of the dishes on this eclectic menu have been compiled from the various places around the world where Coats and his wife have traveled, which brings a little bit of the world to central Arkansas.

Coats also attributes his success to many things like his employees and the community, but he also attributes the fantastic success of Mike’s Place to good old fashioned hard work. “You don’t work harder because you make more, you work harder because you care,” he said. And many people couldn’t disagree.
