By Nancy Anderson Beaver Creek Kayak Club joined the Knox County Adopt-A-Stream program by adopting the Harrell Road Stormwater Park area of Beaver Creek at 7221 Harrell Road, officially agreeing to maintain that section of Beaver Creek.

The group commemorated the event by picking up more than 30 bags of trash Saturday, March 25. The Stormwater Park features a kayak launch point and is the beginning of the Beaver Creek Water Trail, which flows six miles, ending at the Knox County Sports

Park on Oak Ridge Highway. According to Beaver Creek Kayak Club president Charlie Austin, the club has long maintained Beaver Creek with trash cleanups along Harrell Road and along the creek banks. “Every time we get in the creek

we start with empty kayaks, but we come back with them full of trash and debris. We’re always on the lookout for trash and we frequently make additional trips with chainsaws just to clear away To page A-3

Beaver Creek: Connecting the dots By Sandra Clark

The East Tennessee Community Design Center is drawing plans for public access points to connect Beaver Creek from Halls to Powell under the direction of the Legacy Parks Foundation. Wayne Blasius, executive director of the Design Center, spoke to the Halls Business & Professional Association last week about the work underway. A portion of the cost was contributed by the business associations of Halls and Powell, HBPA and PBPA.

The project’s technical volunteer is landscape architect Trey Benefield, a principal with Benefield Richters - Design + Build Company, with offices on Union Avenue downtown. Blasius could not define a timeline, but said afterward, “It is neat how all the north Knox projects are like dots being connected.” The ET Community Design Center is also working on low-impact development plans for Collier Preserve, adjacent to the Powell Branch Library on Emory Road, and for façade im-

provements for Historic Powell Station. Founded in 1970 by architect Bruce McCarty, the design center is a nonprofit membership organization that matches volunteer professionals with community groups to help design and plan community projects. These rough designs are then used by the community groups to raise funds to implement the plans. The center serves Knox and the other 16 counties of the East Tennessee Development District.

Knox County Schools already tests for safe water By Sandra Clark Last week’s story about legislation introduced by state Rep. Rick Staples implied a problem with drinking water in public schools since Staples wants to require school systems to test it. His bill (HB0631) was scheduled to be heard by the House Education & Administrative Planning subcommittee on Tuesday, March 28. Meanwhile, we checked with state and local agencies to clarify the current status of school water, especially in schools built before June 19, 1986, when the federal lead ban took effect. Tennessee Department of Health spokesperson Shelley Walker refused to comment on pending legislation. Russ Oaks, chief operating officer for Knox County Schools, said the local system has been proactive in testing water.

but nothing involving pipes. Remediation included replacing a faucet or water cooler. “Recognizing this isn’t static, we can have deterioration over time, (KCS) decided to test water regularly,” Oaks said. Twenty percent of schools are tested annually, meaning every school will

be tested every five years. Oaks said school staff pull 10 samples at each school, focusing on drinking water. So is the water safe? “Our (testing) actions are proactive and prudent. Everywhere we check, we ensure that it’s safe. KUB has been great working with us,” Oaks said.

Buzz Thomas will return to his role as director of Great Schools Partnership. Bob Thomas is a longtime Fountain City resident whose wife, Beckye Justice Thomas, was choral director at Central High School. Their son, Brandon, graduated from Central High School and UT. Bob Thomas taught at Bearden and Rule high schools. He has been an assistant superintendent since 1990.

North West business group gets new officers By Sandra Clark A leadership team of new and old members is undertaking to revive the North West Knox Business & Professional Association. The group met last week at Bojangle’s in Karns to plan strategy. New officers are R. Larry Smith, president, and Spencer Gross, vice president. Committee members include Terry Hill, school liaison; Martha Kirby, beautification; Cassie Kiestler, Karns Fair; Sandra Clark, membership; Carolyn Greenwood, website; and Alisa Pruett, community liaison. Smith said he wanted the meeting to look forward rather than back. The first goal is to boost membership. To do that, we must have clear member benefits, said Gross. The group talked about an expanded website and Facebook presence. Gross mentioned shared advertising. Kane, a longtime club leader, stressed the value of the organization’s projects, especially to the Karns community. The BPA sponsors the Karns Fair and the Karns Christmas Parade. It maintains the Welcome to Karns sign and landscaping on Oak Ridge Highway and coordinates litter pickup. In his final year as a state representative, Kane said he’s sponsoring a bill to allow high school seniors to do creek and stream cleanup as credit toward their TN Achieves scholarships. Kirby recommended a contract with Drew Silver to mulch and weed the area around the Welcome to Karns sign. Gross advocated more connection between Karns High and Hardin Valley Academy, perhaps with

rate for retirees? She wants to reach out to churches, nonprofits and schools. Litter is an issue, Greenwood said, especially since

the state no longer compels litter pickup for DUI convictions. Smith said the club will meet at noon the third Tues-

day at the Karns Senior CenInfo: R. Larry Smith at ter. The next meeting will be 865-922-5433 or online at April 20 with a program on www.nwkbpa.com business-to-business marketing.

Loretta Bradley: A life of faith and service By Margie Hagen For Loretta Bradley, a chance encounter in the Farragut Folklife Museum turned into another way to give back to her community. Bradley’s great-greatgrandfather had served as a Union soldier in Knoxville, and her interest in the Civil War initially brought her in, but it was Doris Woods Owens, then director of the museum, who asked her to volunteer. That was in 2001, and it’s been a good fit. Bradley

chuckles as she says, “I’ve become one of the best customers, buying coloring books and toys for my grandkids to teach them history.” Born and raised in East Knoxville, Bradley didn’t always have an easy life, but she relied on her faith; she has been an active member of Shiloh Presbyterian Church for over 75 years, serving in many positions. As a member of Presbyterian Women, she has been on missions to Asia, Europe

and South America. Education was important too; Bradley was in the first graduating class of Austin High School. After briefly attending Spelman College in Atlanta, she returned to Knoxville, earning a bachelor’s degree from Knoxville College and eventually a master’s in social work from the University of Tennessee. Being the first in her family to graduate from college was a proud accomplishment. Putting her education to good use over the years, Bradley worked as a supervisor for the city of Knoxville and an organizer for the Community Action Committee. In the late 1960s, she developed the first Knoxville Urban Renewal Project Area Committee, often taking her two sons to meetings. “They would keep attendance records and run the projector.” Moving to Farragut in

1999, Bradley was embraced by neighbors and residents. “I love the area,” she says. “Anchor Park has beautiful walking trails, and I take my grandkids to the splash pad in McFee Park.” These days Bradley is retired, but you can find her in the museum on Friday afternoons. “I want to pay the community back for welcoming me.”

A Civil War display in the Farragut Folklife Museum is one of Loretta Bradley’s favorites.

Karns Cub Scouts hold pinewood derby More than 45 Cub Scouts ages 6 to 11 gathered at Beaver Ridge United Methodist Church for the annual Pack 50 Pinewood Derby Friday, March 24. Each boy was given an identical pinewood car kit consisting of a plain block of pinewood, four wheels and four axles (which are actually nails) and six weeks to turn it into a lightning fast work of art. With multiple categories, opportunities to win were plentiful. Each age

group competed within that age group. The first-, second- and third-place winners competed against each other for the overall winners, who will take their cars to the Annual Council Pinewood Derby in

April. There was an “Outlaw” category where family members of a Cub Scout got the opportunity to compete, and a “Best in Design” for the boy with the best-looking car. Cubmaster William Thompson said the derby is one of the most popular family activities in Cub Scouting. “Basically, the boys get the whole family involved in turning a block of wood into a 5-ounce decorated derby

car. Some of them are really elaborate. The cars are powered by gravity and run down a 42-feet aluminum track. “Everyone has a great time cheering on their favorite cars. “The boys learn problem solving, how to use tools, design, and they learn good sportsmanship through competition. It’s a win-win for everyone even if you don’t actually win a race. “It’s all about having fun.”

James Kimsey, 9, won “Best in Design” for his superhero inspired car.

nior Living. A current project involves Broadway Carpet. The business, a former car dealership, donated a portion of

its parking lot as a public park, so the design center is helping design the park and provide façade redesign for the business itself to be consistent with city-sponsored improvements underway on the Broadway Corridor. Blasius estimated the community gets $23 in benefits for each $1 spent from

his center’s $360,000 annual budget. “Our work has an effect on economic development, public health and communities.”

Adopt-A-Stream asks that we do two cleanups a year, but it’s actually an ongoing effort at the Harrell Road ‘S’ curve especially. People constantly utilize that low visibility area to throw trash from their vehicles. “Two cleanups a year just isn’t going to cut it. We have to get that cleaned up before it makes its way to the creek.” AmeriCorps Water Quality Team members Jacqueline Cirincione and Colleen McWilliams were on hand to provide trash pickers, bags, safety vests and gloves.

How long are your arms? What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but do not have works? Can faith save you? If a brother or sister is naked and lacks daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill,” and yet you do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that? So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead. (James 2:14-17 NRSV)

‘Local’ is point of pride for 94Z’s ‘Stryker’ You might say Kevin “Stryker” Summitt launched his radio career growing up in Colonial Village.

Betsy Pickle

“It’s been a dream of mine since I was about 8 years old, sitting in my bedroom with a Fisher-Price record player that had a built-in microphone,” says Summitt. “I would play my mom and dad’s old 45 records, and then while I was changing the records out, I would pick up the microphone and announce, ‘That was Waylon Jennings. Up next is Kenny Rogers.’ “I was bored a lot as an only child.” More than 30 years later, Summitt lives in a different house in Colonial Village – with his own family, not with parents Coy and Jeanette Summitt. But he long ago turned his dream into reality. He’s now the assistant program director, music director and afternoon drive-time disc jockey at 94Z, WNFZ. The 94.3 frequency is an old friend – he was on air before when it was 94.3 the X. It isn’t the only local frequency he has repeated. His resumé and relationships read like a history of the past 25 years in Knoxville radio. “It’s difficult to stay in radio consistently without being a radio gypsy, as they call them, and moving from market to market,” says Summitt. “But I had young children, and moving from town to town was

UT in 2015, a chance conversation put him in touch with the younger Pirkle. He and Summitt were both interested in reviving a rock station on the frequency, which had gone through several format changes. “Jonathan reached out to me, and in secrecy we started laying the groundwork for the station. We didn’t come on the air with it till Oct. 21, 2015.” Most of the disc jockeys are former colleagues from the X whom Summitt recruited. He’s proud of their musical knowledge and what they bring to the station. He’s also proud that 94Z is an independent station that cares about the community. That was evident when wildfires devastated the Gatlinburg area last year. “While the big corporate radio stations in town were having meetings, trying to decide what they were going to do in response to this fire, we had already gathSoKno’s own Kevin “Stryker” Summitt talks on the air at 94Z.

Performances will feature different casts, which is why there are two Ariels pictured. Photos by Suzanne Foree Neal

Concord Christian School elementary principal Leigh Ledet donned a Mickey Mouse costume for “Disney Dress-Up Day� at the school. Students paid a fee to dress up with proceeds going to the theater department. Joining Ledet as characters from the movie “Inside Out� are (back row) Briley Kris (fear) and Lexi Van Dyk (anger); (front) Molly Spiller (disgust), Ella Finley (sadness) and Annika Fletcher (joy).

Students learn while playing their parts By Suzanne Foree Neal

Popular Disney princesses: Abby Campbell, dressed as Belle, does her best royal wave along with Annabell Brock as Princess Aurora.

A group of 18 middle and high school students at Concord Christian School are ready to break a leg as they present Disney’s “Little Mermaid� for three performances April 6-8. To get in the mood, the school had “Disney Dress-Up Day� to raise funds for the theater program. A fee allowed students to don their Disney best from princesses to Darth Vader. Theater teacher Christi Watson says the mixed-age cast “builds community and helps students meet people outside their grade level. Every time I direct I want them to learn how to be what God wants them to be.� “The Little Mermaid,� she adds, is a joyful story with a lesson. “Ariel is not afraid of people who are different, and our

differences are why we have variety and diversity. We discuss what we can learn as we rehearse.� Actors pointed to teamwork as an important lesson learned. Allison Strong, who plays Sebastian, says, “In a cast you have to have a level of trust in yourself and your team all through the process. No one is ‘benched’ because we’re all on stage at the same time.� Different actors may play the same part as there is more than one cast. Deborah Allion, Ariel, says while the musical is fantasy she has learned how to deal with similar situations in real life. Kirsten Jennings, another Ariel, is counting her thespian blessings that she’s still in the play. “I broke my foot and was afraid I would lose my role as Ariel.�

Prince Eric, Mekahi Davis, says the experience can “help build character and build perspective even if the character isn’t like you.� River Bailey, Flounder, a sixth-grader, is one of the younger cast members. “This is my first year and I learned how everybody has to work really hard. It doesn’t matter if you’re playing a big part or a smaller part.� Kayla Harrell, new to CCS, loves playing Atina, one of Ariel’s “sassy� sisters. “It’s fun to play somebody different and I can get my sass on,� she laughs. Show times are 7 p.m. April 6 and 7, and 3 p.m. April 8. Tickets are $10 at the Storehouse at the school or $12 online at www.concordchristianschool. org.

What if George Washington were on Twitter? By Kip Oswald Just about every person I know has a Twitter account. Even our school has one, so I began wondering about the presidents of the United States and Twitter. President Obama was the first president to have a Twitter account, but since he rarely used it, President Trump is actually being called the “Twitter President” due to his daily multiple tweets. Kip So I began thinking what would it have been like if the other 43 presidents had been on Twitter. So let’s pretend that all our presidents had a Twitter account or the media was tweeting about them. When I asked several people what they knew about George Washington, I got little accurate information. Most said he was our first president, but no one knew he was the only president ever to be unanimously elected president. Also, a few said he was called the Father of Our Country, but no one knew that the people tried to call him “His Highness, the President of the United States of America, and Protector of their Liberties,” and that it was Washington who named himself “Mr. President.” Everyone I talked to knew we celebrated Washington’s birthday in February, but no one knew that it became a holiday while he was still president. There were some fun facts no one knew. For instance, Washington was homeschooled by his father and brother until he quit school altogether to be a surveyor at 15. His favor-

ite foods were cream of peanut soup, mashed sweet potatoes with coconut, string beans with mushrooms, and pineapples. When Washington became president, he did not have enough money to get to his own inauguration so he had to borrow $600 from a neighbor. However, when he was president, he turned down his salary of $25,000, which was 2 percent of the U.S. budget, and even had a job running a ferry service across the Potomac River during his first year as president. By the way, if the president made 2 percent of the U.S. budget now, he would make $80 billion instead of the current $400,000 presidential salary. There were some big misunderstandings by all the people I talked to. They thought George Washington lived in Washington, D.C., had wooden teeth and chopped down a cherry tree! For these mistakes, I made three tweets from President Washington! George Washington @FatherofOur Country I was the first president and the only president to never live in Washington D.C., the capital town named for me!

last words

New beginning for Butch Jones This is an exciting time in Tennessee football. Can you see the sparks and feel the thrill? It is the new beginning of Butch Jones’ coaching career. He has a new boss. He has five new primary assistants. He will have a new quarterback. This is Butch’s secondbest chance to become one of the truly famous leaders in the game. His first was when Dave Hart coaxed him away from Cincinnati as the replacement for Derek Dooley. He received a motivational boost in pay and inherited great facilities and the rich Tennessee tradition. Even with roster deficiencies, some degree of success seemed certain. There was almost no way Jones could do worse than his predecessor. Butch, indeed, built brick by brick and made considerable progress but did not set the proverbial woods on fire. His recruiting classes were better than his 3021 record. He lost a couple he should have won. Some pearls of wisdom were misconstrued. Critics sneered. Timing wasn’t too good but “champions of life” and “five-star hearts” sounded noble enough to me.

Marvin West

Last season was a double disappointment. The Vols managed to miss out on the SEC East championship in that inexplicable setback at South Carolina. At Vanderbilt, the Vols played themselves out of the Sugar Bowl. Just guessing, but there may have been some unrest in the ranks. Fans certainly fretted. This is almost like starting over. New deck of cards. The youth movement is complete. The depth problem has been reduced. In theory, 32 of 44 from the two-deep chart are returning. That sounds really good until you notice that many of the best players are gone. There is now more ordinary optimism where wild and wonderful expectations once lived. There is talent and better odds on development. Some who were injured have healed. Competition at several positions is already obvi-

Shelby County to Knox: Stop Harry Brooks’ Opportunity Scholarship Pilot Program was drafted to provide private school scholarships to students in public school districts that have at least 30 schools performing in the state’s bottom 5 percent. In other words, Memphis. And although they didn’t exactly tell him to take his bill and shove it, droves of Memphians traveled to Nashville last week to attend the Education Administration & Planning Committee meetings so they could let Brooks know what they think of his Memphisonly voucher plan: “Our community has to suffer the consequences of your decisions,” one parent said. “We have the highest poverty rate in any county of this size in the state of Tennessee. That’s real and with that comes challenges. When you take dollars out, you’re taking resources.” Democratic Rep. Johnnie Turner, a retired educator who represents an innercity Memphis district, said the voucher bill will siphon $19 million from the resources of the schools she represents. “Leave Shelby County alone,” Turner said. “Go pick somebody else’s schools to be your whipping dog. Why do we always have to be the dumping ground?” Brooks responded that

ous in spring drills. If what we hear from players is fact instead of fiction, Rock Gullickson lit the fire that is supposed to warm up the future. He was an all-NFL strength and conditioning coach who just happened to be unemployed when Butch called. I can still hear Jones’ enthusiastic endorsement … “We are ecstatic to welcome Rock … I know what he stands for as a coach and a person … he fits the culture we are continuing to build at UT … he has a comprehensive plan that I truly believe our players will greatly benefit from … he is passionate about his work, tireless, detail-oriented, and has a tremendous track record of developing and motivating players … he will provide the type of training needed to compete at the highest level.” That sounded to me like Butch had a need and Rock had a chance to meet it. No question about defensive backs coach Charlton Warren. He got a very large pay increase to come from North Carolina to fill a void. If he teaches corners to look back for the football, he will be worth all $450,000 a year.

For another half a million, Butch purchased extensive experience and credibility in Brady Hoke. The former head coach at Michigan has a giant reputation among defensive line coaches. He does face a challenge. The Tennessee head coach changed the offensive staff without changing the offense. Tight end coach Larry Scott made the big jump, to coordinator, and undoubtedly influenced the selection of quarterbacks coach Mike Canales and wide receivers coach Kevin Beard. All three have south Florida ties. Walt Wells’ Middle Tennessee recruiting connections helped him become offensive line coach. What all this says is Butch Jones has improved his chances of moving on up in the world. Contract extension? Five million instead of four? Joy, joy, strike up the band. All we need now are defensive tackles, outside linebackers, secondary solidity and results. Nine more wins might satisfy John Currie until Butch can get to 10.

DeBerry accused the crowd of “acting as though the zombies are going to come out and the moon is going to turn to blood if we pass vouchers.” Raumesh Akbari, another Memphis Democrat, challenged Brooks to show consistent proof that vouchers work. “You’re stepping into an area that is not your area, and you’re coming into my county and you’re telling us how we’re going to handle it. … If you want vouchers, include your county in it.” Another big stumbling block is end of term testing. Children receiving vouchers will be required to take the TNReady test. Non-voucher students won’t. Republican Ron Lollar, from Bartlett, was no kinder to Brooks than the rest of the Shelby County delegation.

“Everybody should have to take the same test. … There’s words for what you do to one child that you don’t do to all of them, and I think the courts will have something to say about that.” Knox County school board member Jennifer Owen makes a weekly trip to Nashville to observe educational issues being debated.

Witt embarks on race for clerk By Sandra Clark Sherry Witt is a wellliked, respected county officeholder who will find herself out of work in late 2018. So the register of deeds for 10 years is seeking to become Knox County clerk. “There’s an opening in the clerk’s office and I’m applying,” she says. Term limits will kick in next year for Mayor Tim Burchett, Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones, Witt and Clerk Foster Arnett. In addition, Cathy Quist Shanks has said she will not run for re-election as clerk of Circuit and Sessions courts. Witt, 58, has worked in the register’s office since she graduated from UT. She was chief deputy to Steve Hall before taking the top job. Now her deputy, Nick Mc-

Bride, is seeking to move up. A potential primary opponent has emerged. State Rep. Roger Kane is eyeing a courthouse post. He’s already announced he won’t seek re-election to the Legislature. Foster Arnett has been an anomaly among officeholders. He’s tough to work for, has sued the county for an unhealthy work environment (mold), and forgot that collecting hotel/motel taxes is part of his job. Yet he beat well-known Republicans Mike McMillan and Scott Moore in the 2010 primary and handily defeated former clerk Mike Padgett in 2014. Witt won’t commit on Arnett’s tenure, but she sees similarities between the duties of register and clerk.

“I have extensive experience in how a fee office works. Voters can have conf idence in my ability to operate a fiscally responsible clerk’s ofSherry Witt fice without compromising the level of service they deserve.” Witt has served as president of the state registers association and was voted Tennessee’s Outstanding Register in 2015. She is proud of her record in the register’s office. “We have reduced staff and budget over 10 years,” she says. Her office is totally paperless, with records stored electronically, saving

about a million copies per year. She has reduced staff through attrition as technology has made recordkeeping more efficient. The office currently has 22 fulltime and six part-time seasonal positions. Witt’s family includes daughters Shay and Chelsey; son-in-law Shane Gordon; and grandsons Grelyn and Seth. The life of an officeholder is busy, she says. Office hours are 8-4:30 weekdays. Some days start with a pre-work breakfast meeting. Many evenings are committed to nonprofits or Republican clubs. She is not worried about a primary opponent. “I grew up with seven brothers and sisters,” she says. “I’ve had to fight for everything I’ve got.”

and a time to every purpose under the heaven – Ecclesiastes 3:1 We invite visitors to enjoy the scenic vistas of Gentry Griffey Funeral Chapel in the spring.

Friends at heart

The Heartbeats bond through fitness & friendship It’s been seven years since Richard Ashworth ignored his wife’s warnings and had what could’ve been a fatal heart attack. But here he is – still in the Parkwest Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation program at Fort Sanders West. Still walking the treadmill. Still pedaling the bike. And still walking the walk of the heart patient four days a week. He has long since “graduated” from the 12-week, 36-session program, but he’s far from finished. Fate and heart disease might have brought him here, but friends – and maintaining a healthy heart – are what keeps him coming back. That’s why, in 2012, he started The Heartbeats, a diverse group of roughly 20 like-minded, mostly senior-somethings (mid 50s to 98!) who believe fitness and

friendship are good for the heart. While a few work out as many as five days a week, most of The Heartbeats can be found every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning at the 8 a.m. rehab session. They’re the ones you’ll see smiling as they talk woodworking projects, swap books or share recipes as they move between exercise machines. You can also find them every other Monday at various restaurants around Knoxville as they take their social club on the road for either breakfast or lunch. Many come to the restaurant straight from their workouts, still wearing sneakers. They’ve even held a group picnic, and a Christmas luncheon drew 23. “It’s a great way to start the day,” said Ashworth, a retired salesman whose gift of gab

What is Cardiac Rehab? After a hospitalization caused by heart disease, cardiac rehabilitation is recommended by the American Heart Association. At the Parkwest Cardiac Rehabilitation Outpatient Program at Fort Sanders West, patients who have experienced a cardiac event are prescribed a program of education and exercise to help their recovery and improve their odds for avoiding a future visit to the hospital. Patients are evaluated at their first visit and usually follow a schedule of three to five days a week for up to 36 visits. The process includes meeting with an exercise physiologist for a program tailored to the patient’s needs and ability. Exercise can include treadmills, arm ergometers, stationary bicycles, elliptical machines, weights and steps. Each patient wears a heart monitor and is constantly being evaluated. The exercise program is updated as the patient progresses. The exercises at cardiac rehab are created specifically for the patient’s cardiac needs, and the additional medical monitoring creates a safer environment than at a public gym. “Cardiac rehab is recommended for all patients following a heart event,” said Parkwest Cardiac Rehab Manager Jon Dalton, MA, ASCM EP-C, CCRP. “Still most heart patients are reluctant to par-

Jon Dalton, MA, ACSM EP-C, CCRP ticipate. Studies have shown that completing the recommended 36 sessions of cardiac rehab results in more than a 40 percent reduction in secondary heart events, and increases the chances of survival – even if there is a secondary heart event. Patients who participate in cardiac rehab also have a much higher quality of life.” For more information about cardiac rehabilitation and heart health, visit TreatedWell.com/ CardiacRehab, or call Parkwest Cardiac Rehab at 865-531-5560.

Members of The Heartbeats working out and socializing on a recent Monday morning were, from left: Joe Chalmers, Nancy Nance, Opal Ellis, Don Tevault, Ginger Tevault, Jim Coffin, Sam Coley, Don Shell, Jim Holladay, Gary Johnson, Joann Hipshire, Marshall Ellis, Oscar Fowler, Richard Ashworth and Rita Holladay; sitting, Mike Garl; and kneeling, Floyd Hipshire.

has kept the group going even as members have come and gone over the years. “None of us knew each other prior to starting, but now we’re 15 to 20 of the greatest friends that you could ever want. This is not exclusive – anyone who wants can join. But those of us who want to come and break bread every other week, we have fun. As I say when I walk into a restaurant, ‘This is 15 senior citizens and we tip well’ and we get great service.” “They’ve had bypasses, stents, valve repairs, a lot of them have diabetes,” said Amy Dale, a registered nurse and case manager at Parkwest Cardiac Rehab. “They’ve gone through a lot of tragedies in their lives, losing spouses, losing children, and they’ve supported each other all through that. They keep up with one another. If somebody doesn’t show up, they’ll check on them. … It’s really sweet to see how they have bonded. They all have a common ground of heart disease, but it’s the friendships that go so much deeper. They come from different backgrounds, different walks of life. Each one of them has a different story and so much to add.” Mercedes Holmes had planned to join an exercise program when she retired in 2000 “but everything got in the way.” Then, after shortness of breath led to the discovery that her heart was functioning at only 35 percent, she began rehab. “Life has a way of sending you what you need when you need it,” she said. “I was a little hesitant. I thought, ‘Oh, God! What have I committed myself to?’ But I came and everybody – everybody – was so receptive, so helpful, and so knowledgeable, it was just the thing to do. I started with a class of about 19, and I’m the only one of that 19 who is in the maintenance program now. I hate that! All of us needed it!” Joann Hipshire began coming after suffering a stroke, which left her in need of physical and occupational therapy as well as three months of cardiac rehab. “I had no intentions of coming after my three months,” she said. “I was kind of angry that it had happened to me because I always considered myself to be in good health. I exercised, ate right and felt good. Suddenly, something happens and it was a shock to me. So I intended that after my three months was up, I was not coming back.” But her husband, Floyd Hipshire, had other plans. “I sat and watched her exercise for the first month and I decided I could do that same exercise she’s doing because it’s only an hour and the machines looked reasonably accessible to me,” said Floyd. “So I

went ahead and got an order from my doctor because I have atrial fibrillation and he agreed that it would probably be beneficial to me, and I started the next month.” “After the three months was up, Floyd said, ‘Let’s just keep on.’ I thought, ‘Well thank you, dear Lord! I’ve tried for 50 years to get him do something!’” said Joann. “My idea was I was going to keep coming in order to keep him coming. It’s now been six years, but we’ve supported each other. It is a great support group and we’re all supportive of each other.” Wanda Cox began coming with her husband to maintenance after he completed the three-month program following a heart attack and open-heart surgery. “After he passed away, I asked if I could come back because I have grown so fond of everyone in this group,” she said. “It’s just like family here. When my husband was ill, so many of them came by the house to check on him and to be with him, and they were there for me during the funeral services and they have been there for me ever since. I could have gone to another place for a workout, but this is my family. Just being around this group is uplifting. I love it.” “We have a senior center that we can walk to from our house and could exercise there,” said Joann Hipshire. “But I think the knowledge that you’re with a group and they are expecting you to be there has been one of the greatest things that we’ve done together and it’s helped both of us.” “There are other programs, but there are none like this,” said Mercedes Holmes. “From top to bottom, everybody understands the significance of your problem and they have helpful information from managing your diet to what’s working for them on exercise.” Richard Ashworth also recognizes the added value of the Parkwest Cardiac Rehab staff of exercise physiologists, clinical dietitian, respiratory therapist, registered nurses and physicians. “Parkwest’s staff has been wonderful to us,” he said. “You’ve got excellent care from the front desk, from the nurses, from the doctors ... It’s wonderful. It’s great! You wouldn’t have that at other places. “We could go anywhere and do anything exercise-wise separately, but we would not be as dedicated as we are now. As I’ve told many folks, the rehab side is just the beginning – the classroom is great, but the journey begins when you start maintenance – and stay – in maintenance. It’s got to be if you want to live.”
