As the weather begins to get warmer we all begin to venture outside to tackle all those much needed outdoor projects. It is not uncommon during these times for the local health care facility to see an increase in the number of heart attack victims related to physical exertion from these outdoor activities in people with increased risk for heart disease. A heart attack is the result of a decrease in the amount of oxygen and blood that reaches the heart muscle. This can be due to a blockage in one or more of the vessels that carry blood and oxygen to the heart. If the blockage is not treated quickly, the heart muscle can begin to die. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, approximately 1.1 million people in the U.S. will suffer from a heart attack each year. Of those, over half will die, many of them within the first hour of symptom onset. Many people ignore the initial signs because they may not be aware that what they are experiencing is in fact a heart attack. However, recognizing the signs and symptoms of a heart attack and seeking immediate medical attention can lessen the damage done to the heart—and potentially save your life. That’s why it’s important to know the warning signs. These include: • Chest pain or discomfort. This can be described as a heaviness, tightness or squeezing sensation in the chest. Some people may even experience abdominal pain. The discomfort will last longer than a few minutes and may come and go. • Discomfort in the upper body, such as back, neck or jaw pain that can radiate into the arms. This pain can be associated with nausea, vomiting, and lightheadedness and the person can feel cold and sweaty at the same time. • Shortness of breath, with or without chest discomfort. Although the most common symptom of a heart attack in women is chest pain or discomfort, they are more likely than men to experience other symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting and back or jaw pain. If you or someone you know experiences any of these symptoms, do not hesitate to seek medical attention immediately. Don’t wait; call 9-1-1! The American Heart Association recommends that people learn the warning signs of a heart attack so that they can act fast as minutes really do matter! Calling 911 is almost always the quickest way to get lifesaving treatment. In fact, many emergency medical personnel are trained to identify the

symptoms and stabilize the victim before arriving in the Emergency Department. The American Heart Association further recommends that all hospitals have a strategy in place to quickly restore blood flow to the heart. In June 2009, Danville Regional Heart Center, in collaboration with Duke Medicine and our surrounding EMS agencies, implemented a process to improve the identification of life-threatening heart blockages and the process for ensuring quicker treatment. As part of this improvement initiative, Danville Regional Heart Center purchased computer software that allows the EMS agencies to send heart tracings directly to the hospital for review and diagnosis before patients with heart attack symptoms arrive. Rapid identification enables heart attack victims, upon arrival, to be taken directly to our cardiac treatment area, where physicians and specially trained staff deliver treatments that open blocked vessels to restore circulation to the heart muscle. Danville Regional Heart Center provides treatment options for heart attack patients that present to the hospital including ensuring clot dissolving medication delivery within 30 minutes or catheterization lab procedure within 90 minutes of arrival which are in accordance with the latest national guidelines. Danville Regional Heart Center is committed to quality by participating in national data registries for all of our heart attack patients so we can continue to improve our processes and maintain positive patient outcomes. With these new processes in place, Danville Regional Heart Center is providing high-quality heart care to our community. If you have any questions about the Danville Regional Heart Center or our process for the rapid identification and treatment for heart attacks, please contact Tracey Blevins, RN BSN MBA HCM, Cardiovascular Administrative Director, at 434-799-2155 or at tracey.blevins@lpnt.net. And most importantly, don’t forget: “Don’t wait...activate 9-1-1” when experiencing heart attack symptoms.

Robin Williams said, “Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!’ ” Take a look around you. Hopefully you’re reading this issue while sitting outside enjoying the blooming trees and flowers. The warm April afternoon air is complimented with a cool breeze. That’s spring and Robin Williams is right, it’s a time to party. If it’s raining while you’re reading this- well, nature doesn’t always cooperate. But, there’s always tomorrow. In a sense, that’s a metaphor for spring. After being cooped up all winter, we are ready to take in the freshness of spring. The warm weather gives us an itching for spring cleaning. Just the other day I was looking at the lawn and thinking, With some mulching, a little grass seed, and a few shrubs, this lawn could be beautiful. Now, imagining the change and implementing it are two different things. Fortunately, spring also gives us a shot energy making our visions possible. Speaking of change and visions, you will find a new series in this issue entitled “Visions: A Look At What Danville Could Be.” The basic concept is the same as my idea for my lawn, but it’s much grander. Four local residents give their take on the Dan River and the exciting changes that could be brought in the future.

Another aspect of spring is festivals. We take a look at the Danville Wine Festival. This year marks its 10th anniversary. The Danville Wine Festival, at the Community Market, gives wine lovers a place to come together, share some vino, learn about their favorite wines, dance, and party. We welcome spring with open arms, not just for the warm weather, the visions, and the partying. Spring brings with it a fever to enjoy everything you couldn’t during the frigid winter months. I’ll leave you with a quote from Mark Twain, “It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you got it, you want – oh , you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” Enjoy the issue.

Since that time and especially over the course of 2009-2010, we have placed the bulk of our promotional advertisement in Evince Magazine and Showcase Magazine. We have run multiple-sized ads: full-page, double trucks, and three column by five-inch modular. During this period our growth has been nothing short of phenomenal having started with nine student, and in two years grown to nearly eighty. We attribute this growth to our campaigns in Evince and Showcase. We determined this not only through implication of advertising mainly in these two publications, but by surveys that asked the question, “Where did you learn about EES?� This question also appears on our enrollment applications. Advertising regularly in Evince Magazine and Showcase Magazine has proven fruitful for out start-up school. We feel it would be a wise strategy to for any business attempting to reach that dynamic market and demographic range. Sincerely, The Rev. Samuel Colley-Toothaker Head of School

A Special Angel: Joe Hill

he said...she said...

Larry and I were deeply touched by the extraordinary life of Joe Hill. Instead of our regular “He Said She Said” column, we wanted to share a tribute to our friend. If you knew Joe, you

know why we are doing this. If you didn’t know Joe, we wanted to share our feelings and our deep sense of loss with you. For nearly fourteen years Danville and Pittsylvania County was blessed to be in the presence of a special young man, Joseph Bradie Hill, known as Joe. He imparted a cheerful disposition with his perception of how life should be lived. Joe had a contagious laugh and sense of humor that he shared with everyone he met. In fact, people were drawn to Joe because of his laughter and sense of humor. Joe was like a magnet that could eliminate the doldrums by drawing his friends into his world of kindness, sincerity, and caring attitude. The depth of gratitude shown by this remarkable teenager to all the people in his life is immeasurable. How many thirteen-year-old children would apologize to their parents because they had become sick? I don’t know many adults who have the capacity to exhibit that much compassion to others while suffering from their own physical affliction, but Joe did.

by Larry Oldham & Dena Hill Be sure to read She Said He Said in Evince.

Joe enjoyed life by playing sports, telling stories, and making everyone around him feel special. The truth is he was the special one. Joe was a shining light for others to follow. He lit up a room when he walked through the door and I always loved his infectious smile.

Joe Hill Joe’s friends are a testament to his loving personality with their wonderfully written tributes to a peer who led by example and brought beauty into their lives with his attitude. He was always helpful and always put others before himself. Joe leaves all of us with memories of a Special Angel whom God gave the world for thirteen short years. Joe, we thank you for these memories, for the laughter and the joy you brought to each and every one of us through your kindred spirit. I’m sure you’re sitting at the Master’s feet today telling Him your stories and antics here on Earth and making Him laugh as you made all of us laugh. Thank you, Joe, for touching our hearts in such a unique way. You leave us yearning for more of your friendship, more of your dedication to bringing joy into other people’s lives. We are better human beings because of the influence of one Special Angel named Joe Hill.

Get Business Sales Sent Your Way

Effective Networking

financial

While satisfied customers may be your best sales force, that does not mean they are the only sales force. There are lots of other people out there who can send business your way if you make the effort to network with them and make it worth their while. The concept of networking and word-of-mouth marketing is a very hot topic in business today for one simple reason: So many people are starting small businesses that need to find other businesses they can work with for mutual benefit. That is why you will find no shortage of business professional or service organizations through which you can meet other people. The key is to pick them wisely. Choose only one or a few organizations that will be good for business networking and ignore the rest. Otherwise, you will be spending your entire time meeting, socializing, and not working. Marketing without producing is another surefire formula for bankruptcy. How do you decide whether to join an organization or go to its social functions? Let’s ask another question, “Am I likely to meet people there who will buy from me or refer customers to me?” If the answer is no, do not go unless you have some other reason for going. The world is full of professional joiners who never met an organization they did not like. They go to all the meetings. They hold offices and serve on committees and boards, and since they do all that free work, the organizations love them. Nothing wrong with that. It is just that when you run a solo business you cannot delegate your work to others while you go out and play social butterfly. Your networking time needs to be marketing time. This means putting yourself in front of customers or people who will send customers your way. With that in mind, here are six guidelines for networking with others mutual gain.

by Todd Boaze

Money management tips, small business strategies and a variety of other financial concepts. Facts and information contained is not intended to provide specific legal, financial or tax advice, or any other advice for any individual or company and should not be relied upon in that regard.

1

1. Look for businesses that complement yours. For example, put a tax accountant, financial planner, estate planning attorney, stockbroker, and insurance agent together and you have five people who can refer customers to each other endlessly. Similarly, a wedding photographer would find it profitable to network with caterers, jewelers, bridal consultants, florists, churches, and reception halls. When a customer buys from you, what other products and services is he/she likely to want or need? These businesses are the type that would be excellent for networking.

2. Competitors can also be an excellent networking opportunity. Just because you go head-to-head with other businesses does not mean that you cannot work together sometimes for mutual gain. Have you ever noticed how one airline will book you on another carrier if it does not have a flight to the destination or at the time you want? Airlines have an agreement whereby they book business for each other in return for compensation. You may find it useful to work out such an agreement with some of your competitors. On the other hand, you may have an

| APRIL 2011 | www.showcasemagazine.com

informal agreement whereby you refer one of your competitors to customers for no pay.

3

3. Before going to a networking function, prepare in advance. Bring plenty of business cards. If you want to be remembered, have your picture printed on your business cards and do something with your name tags that will attract attention. Also, before going compose and memorize a brief memorable statement and unique sales proposition when writing the description. For example, if I were going to a networking function my description would be, “I like to work smarter through my writing. My latest work is focused on teaching people how to become financially independent and a smart money saver. I know first hand that it can be done and I want others to profit from what I have learned.” 4. Once you get to the meeting, make good use of your time. Arrive early and leave late. That way you will meet more people. Do not stand around and wait for others to come to you. Act like a gracious host. Go up and introduce yourself to others. Find out what they sell and what type of people they want to connect with. If that is not you, do you know others who might be of some help to them? If so, pass their names along. Encourage others to tell you about their businesses and you will be remembered as a brilliant conversationalist. If you know someone who might be a potential customer for them, pass the information along. After you learn about their work, be sure to deliver the short message about your business to everyone you meet. Exchange business cards and write anything you need to remember about them on the back of their cards. Do not be abrupt, but try not to spend more than 10 minutes with any person. Remember, you are there to market your business and to help others. The more people you meet the more chances of forming a few good profitable relationships becomes a reality.

4

5

5. Be sure to ask for leads and referrals. That is why you are there. After describing your business to someone ask, “who do you know - who?” Moreover, describe your typical customer. It might be that person or you remind him/her of someone who could be your next big customer. As you get leads, write them down and follow-up fast as possible. 6. If you want to get referrals, you need to give referrals. Reciprocity is the basis for all good relationships and it is especially true in business. When someone sends a customer to you, acknowledge it with at least a thank you note. A small gift is even better and sending him/her a customer is better yet. Keep in touch with those you network with. If you see an item of interest tell them about it. When you refer a customer to a business, make sure it is a quality business. If the customer gets poor treatment, it is going to reflect poorly on you.

6

Never forget that as a business owner you will be in a constant race against an ever-improving marketplace and no matter where you are in the hunt, making improvements is a daily necessity.

Wine Festival

There are two types of people in the world. Those who love wine. And those who don’t drink it. But if listening to live music, mingling with friends, and shopping the vendors’ aisles for unique goodies is your thing- then the Danville Wine Festival is for you! Mark you calendars and don’t miss the 10th anniversary of the Danville Wine Festival. There are some wonderful things happening in our area because of this event. The Wine Festival is held inside the Danville Community Market, which has all the amenities necessary for a comfortable, relaxing time. But what’s better than the atmosphere recreated inside the old, restored tobacco warehouse in Downtown Danville, is the benevolence the event is able to offer because of those in attendance. This Wine Festival is more than a collection of good times, good friends, and good wine- it’s a fundraiser made possible by the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic men’s organization whose guiding principle is charity. “This event is by far our biggest fund-raiser,” states Barry Browning, co-chairman and Knights of Columbus member. Also chairing the event each year is Corky Medaglia who says, “The community really enjoys and looks forward to this event year after year”. A lot of people aren’t aware that this event aides hundred of families in need throughout our community. Through such events, the Knights of Columbus is able to provide these families with things like food baskets and clothing. Also it organizes and funds various activities for the youth, makes monetary donations to the Salvation Army, and aids in other local agencies such as God’s Store House. Barry and Corky joined forces for the Danville Wine Festival through the Knights of Columbus ten years ago. With Corky being the owner and operator of Tomahawk Mill Winery, coupling what he knows with what he believes has proven a winning combination. Corky says the Danville Wine Festival is the nicest, in his opinion, of all the wine festivals at which he’s been a vendor. He grinned stating, “You don’t have to worry about it being too hot, or raining. Indoor plumbing is a plus too, since most are held outdoors.” During an interview about the festival Corky gave me a little lesson in wine. As we shared a bottle of his Vidal Blanc he explained, or tried to, the importance of each component of a wine. Clarity, acidity, alcohol, and body; which all sounded very complicated. He spoke of the process like it was as simple as snapping your fingers. Luckily there wasn’t a quiz afterward. Corky attributes his wine passion to an Italian gene, although he didn’t fulfill his desire until he was fifty-years old. When he realized his wine-making enthusiasm was getting the best of him, he searched for a place to create wine. In 1989, he came across the already-established Tomahawk Mill Winery, “And the price was right,” he said. While some of the property needed some work, he jumped right in and made it his own. Today, Tomahawk Mill Winery produces and sells fourteen different wines. “People have such a variable taste, and you want to produce something for everyone.” The confidence in Corky’s voice conveyed his success in accomplishing just that.

The 10th Annual Danville Wine Festival

APRIL 30, 2011 11 AM - 7 PM Chardonnay Sauvignon Blanc Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Pinot Noir

Wine can be very intimidating, but it’s really quite harmless. People who enjoy wine also enjoy telling you about wine experiences and their preferred tastes. So a wine festival is a great place to find that perfect sip. Since wines can be described as anything from racy to stony; grassy to flabby it’s hard to know exactly what you’re talking about when asking for a wine. So here is a crash course in three of the most popular wine types to get you started:

Dry Wines:

Champagne Prosecco Moscato d’Asti Cava Lambrusco Brachetto

Also known as table wines, dry wines are the opposite of sweet wines. Dry, table wines can range from light and fruity to dense, full-bodied and powerful. Some examples of dry wines are Chardonnays, Sauvignon Blancs, Cabernet Sauvignons, Merlots, and Pinot Noirs.

Sparkling Wines: The most familiar of sparkling wines- Champagne. Sparkling wines offer an effervescent delight. These wines vary in fizziness and most are white. Examples of white sparkling wines are Champagne, Prosecco, Moscato d’Asti, and Cava. Examples of red include Lambrusco and Brachetto.

Sweet Wines. AKA Dessert Wines. These wines are made with sugar and to be enjoyed after a meal or with cheese. Examples of Sweet Wines are Zinfandel, Moscato, Muscat or a late harvest Riesling.

Zinfandel Moscato Muscat late harvest Riesling

Now, you have the confidence you need to step up those wine vendors and tell them what you seek. Be sure to visit Copper Vineyards and try their 2008 Reserve Norton, which just received a Gold Medal given in the State during the recently completed Governor’s Cup Competition for Virginia Wineries.

What is it that makes Disneyland so successful? Why do people revisit? Yes, it is great for the children in us all. But honestly, you can get that at a lot of places, any amusement park, Great Wolf Lodge, putt-putt, etcetera . Pretty much anywhere that allows us to forget about the bills, the blackberry, scheduling, everyday demands, if you will. If we are spending our time, but more importantly our hard-earned dollar, consumers want value. We want to feel appreciated. We want EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE. That is the beauty of Walt Disney, Outback Steakhouse, and our very own, Ben David Jewelers. When you walk into Ben David, it is not your average run-of-the-mill store. It is an experience. The smell of Nestle Tollhouse cookies fill the air, friendly sales people extend a hello, The Andy Griffith Show plays on the television above the fireplace. There’s a comfy leather sofa if you want to relax, drinks to quench your thirst, and if this wasn’t heaven enough, gorgeous (pictured clockwise from top) Owners, Leon and Mark David; Ben jewelry sparkles from every angle.

Ben David is a pleasant place to be. Ask any of the smiling associates and they will tell you, they, too are treated like family. Most of the employees have been with Ben David for decades. They love meeting new people at the store, “We are always helping people celebrate, love, births, congratulations, people come in the store happy and leave happier” Carolyn says, Winnie nods in agreement. “We want people to feel like they’ve walked into their friend’s home,” Mark chimes in, “We go

a step above and it is our pleasure, when people come in for a cleaning or an appraisal, we bring the piece back to them on a silver tray with a chocolate kiss. It is the little details.” People are noticing. They drive from Roanoke, call from Minnesota, or stop by, in some instances all the way from California, while visiting family to shop high-fashion jewelry, estate pieces, and watches. You can find Pandora, John Hardy and Rolex to name a few. As a great friend would, Ben David also opens its doors for Valentine’s Day weddings and offers complimentary roses to customers

Riverside BOARDWALK by Vincent Craft

Imagine tourism along Danville’s river. Better yet, what if Danville had tourism and hydro energy? Let’s stroll down Memorial Drive, which is now called Riverside Boardwalk. The once empty buildings are bustling with locals and tourists drawn to an area rich in attractions. Although the area is not as vast as Virginia Beach, Myrtle Beach, and San Antonio’s River Walk, Danville is on the rise. Featuring regional tastes and fashion, Danville has taking a life of its own. One particular boutique creates a style combining local fashion with the spirit of different cultures. The food along the Riverside Boardwalk is a perfect blend of the local chefs’ talents and personalities. All but three of the fifteen restaurants are owned and operated by families born and raised in the area. Food and fashion aren’t the only high spots for the Riverside Boardwalk. Entertainment is flourishing as well. Local performers keep visitors captivated. Having a critically-acclaimed fine arts academy, the wealth of talent along the boardwalk inspired me to visit the school before leaving. I have traveled many places and I find it odd that other cities have not thought to create an area like the Riverside Boardwalk, which provides fun throughout the year. In talking to many of the shop operators, patrons, as well as the city manager, I learned that the light posts and awnings are retrofitted for outdoor patio heaters. This addition keeps the Boardwalk comfortable during those crisp winter weekends. As stunning as the Riverside Boardwalk is, the hydroelectric plant, just a glance away, is a sight to behold. The plant generates close to fifty percent of the city’s power. The new plant has created jobs and helped to lower the utility bills of residents.

The Dan River A PROUD ASSET by Lee Vogler

It has been said that a river is truly the heart of the land in which it occupies. In conjunction with this, the quality of the river is a direct reflection on how people view the quality of their life. With this in mind, what do we want the Dan River to say about us and our community? I can still remember being told as a child that the water in the Dan River “wasn’t clean” due to the chemical dumping from Dan River Incorporated. For a large section of our population, this belief is still held. It has been nearly a decade since Dan River shut down primary operations in Danville. Just as our economic beliefs have begun to evolve for Danville, so must our beliefs of the river itself. The Dan River is a wonderful asset for our city and one in which we must use to its full advantage. Diverse cities from San Antonio to Chattanooga to Richmond offer glimpses of what a river can bring to a community. San Antonio has utilized its San Antonio River over the decades by creating the San Antonio River Walk. Lined by bars, shops and restaurants, the River Walk is an important part of the city’s urban fabric and a tourist attraction in its own right. On a smaller scale, it could be done here. As Bridge Street continues to grow with the addition of Averett and companies such as LifeBatt and LUNA, so will the demand for places to shop and dine. Chattanooga, Tennessee is a lot like Danville in many ways: we both are in close proximity to other large metro areas, we both offer exceptional affordability in cost of living expenses, and yes, we both have a river running through the heart of our cities. You could call Chattanooga the “big brother” of Danville. The economy of Chattanooga, I believe, also represents a good blueprint for what could be achieved in Danville, as it has a diversified and growing mix of manufacturing and service industries. One major difference between the two cities is Chattanooga’s use of the river for recreational and entertainment purposes. We have made strides in this regard over the past several years, but there is still much room for improvement. Chattanooga’s annual Riverbend Festival is a great example of what can be done with a downtown riverfront that features a music venue. This

Danville is transforming. But, the future is unknown. In this multi-part series, we imagine what Danville can be. In this issue four local visionaries take a look at how the Dan River could be brought to life.

A Look at What Danville Could Be

THE RIVER?

Between the Riverside Boardwalk and the idea of creating a green city with the hydroelectric plant, Danville’s willingness to embrace technology is impressive. I would never suggest anyone to visit Danville, I would strongly recommend it.

nine-day festival features food, crafts, sports, activities, and music from national acts. It not only entertains the locals but draws in people from miles away. It started small but grew over time due to committed volunteers and proper promotion. There’s no reason why we couldn’t establish such an event here. Lastly, I’ll briefly mention our Commonwealth’s Capitol, Richmond. In the four years I lived in Richmond, I saw the good and the bad that it can offer. One thing I was impressed with was the city’s use of the James River. From recreational and historic spots like Belle Isle, to the Richmond Canal, there are plenty of opportunities for fun on the James River. One annual festival, known as River Rock, is sponsored by Dominion Power and features live music, food and sports all in one event, as well as a 5k bike race that winds around and over the river. I mentioned these places because similar goals can be achieved here. I understand that each city features its own set of unique assets and disabilities, but I believe the same principles apply. Another option to seriously explore is using the Dan River for hydroelectric power. At a time when gas prices and utility rates are soaring, we have an asset. We should use it. So I’ll finish where I began: a river is truly the heart of the land in which it occupies. What do we want the Dan River to say about us?

River UTILIZATION by Monica L. Karavanic

How could we utilize the river, and what effects would this have on our community? The discussion of Danville’s proposed River District is a hot topic. And, to be honest, I am excited that our city leaders are taking a hard look at our most valuable and natural resource. Communities nationwide are recognizing the rivers that flow through them as their greatest asset. This acknowledgment has led to the planning and redevelopment of the communities around these rivers. We, in Danville, need not look very far to communities that already have success with river utilization. Lynchburg is a good example. On a recent visit to Lynchburg’s revitalized downtown, my husband and I were amused that our seven-year-old son was astute enough to remark, “ Wow, I sure wish Danville was like this.” The city was alive! The shops were many and diverse. People were bustling all around. Along the river, people walked and biked the trail, kids skateboarded in the skateboard park, and a fountain lent a visual interest that captured “oohs and ahs” from my children. We spent an enjoyable afternoon lunching in a local cafe, exploring the historic districts, and visiting The Rightmire Children’s Museum on the river. We left that day feeling very wistful that our own little city did not offer the same quality of life. However, it is not hard to imagine that if we make the same commitment to developing our own River District, we too can be a vibrant and attractive community. Not only would it improve our local economy, but it would surely improve the quality of life for our resident as well.

A Vision for the River Artwork created by Travis Hackworth.

What if

Danville

LOOKED LIKE THIS

About this artwork The Morotock Boutique Hotel concept utlizes the former Morotock Mill located at 18 Floyd St. The concept intended the mill to be converted to a 45 room hotel with a coffee shop in the small annex building, a 300 seat conference space, and a bistro restaurant in the lower level with outdoor patio dining on the corner next to the old City Market parking lot.


Across the river, a dozen kids started playing wiffle ball and the laughter echoed. I slipped away and ran across the walking bridge.

“Oh my, it’s really jumping.” It had been a little over eighteen months since I opened my second-hand store in the RiverShops. It was like my retirement job. Something to do in between doing nothing. But, it is keeping me on my toes. Ever since the riverboat started running, there are a dozen people in the store at any given moment.

A Look at What Danville Could Be

cocked her head. “How’s your store doing?”

“Y’all got room for one more?” I said. “Can you hit a side-armed winger?” he said, while shaking his head. My nod said yes, but my tone said no. I remembered back, wow, it must’ve been forty years by now, to when I was that kid taunting the old man. “Oh, I’m ‘a hit your side-armed winger. You can count on that.” I grabbed the plastic bat and stepped up to the plate. The boy was small for his age but he wound up, twisted his body, and the ball he threw bounced around like he had it on a string. I swung as hard as I could and the bat slipped out of my hands. When it finally came down, it was halfway across the river and hit a duck right in the head. “What are you doing?” the bohemian shopkeeper screamed at me from across the river.

Side-Armed Wingers A SHORT STORY by Andrew Scott Brooks

I stopped in the little store over by the waterfall. The one where the bohemian shopkeeper sits out front with her toes in the water. She glanced at me and kind of smiled, but not really. She was too busy watching the ducks diving for fish to worry about the handmade necklace I picked out for my mother’s birthday present. “Just drop a twenty on the table and I’ll cover the tax,” she said, and looked back at the birds. “I’ll just grab a...” I was wasting my breath; she couldn’t care less about me. I followed the cobblestone pathway to the coffee shop next door. Meredith, the beautiful Asian woman who owns it, greeted me at the door. “And where have you been for so long?” she said with a smile. “You know I sit on the walking bridge and Facebook all day. I don’t have time for socializing.” She hugged me and handed me a picture of her new granddaughter. “Her name is Naomie.” She

“That was our only bat,” the pitcher yelled at me from thirty feet away. “I’m pretty sure I’ve got another in my store,” I said with a dejected tone. I looked up from my feet at the row of stores, restaurants, and clubs, even a church, that ran from the Crossing to the White Mill. “Can one of you kids run and get it?” “You threw the bat, old man. We’ll wait right here for you.” When I finally got back, what was probably like thirty minutes later, I stepped back up to the plate to finish my at bat. “No, No. Pops. We ain’t got time for you to throw another bat in the river.” Figures, I thought as I walked back across the bridge. “I never could hit those side-armed wingers,” I said under my breath to no one but the ducks. www.showcasemagazine.com

myself humbled. The dream, although it never once left me, seemed so far away from me that I felt like the only person on the planet. I looked around at all the people and the life that waited for me, but I couldn‘t go. Not without my dream. I’m not sure if I felt the dream getting further away, or closer. I’m not sure what made me feel the way I felt on that day. But, I remember feeling like there wasn’t anything I couldn’t do, or anything I couldn’t dream. All dreams seemed possible and that dream was begging for my attention. I didn’t waste any time. I faced my dream and accepted it back into my heart. It yearned to be nurtured once again and I had plenty to give it. A life without a dream wasn’t much of a life, but merely a lonesome excursion that offered little in return.

For years, ‘80s rock bands have tried to recapture the glory of dueling guitars and the loud, chant-along choruses of arena rock. And they’ve failed. It’s partly due to a fickle music scene that takes kids with bad haircuts and questionable talent and turns them into pop stars. But, these rock bands are also to blame. Their recent offerings haven’t been strong enough break the spell of auto-tuned puppets. But, that’s about to change. The irony is those ‘80s bands aren’t going to be the saviors of the genre they shaped. Four guys from Chicago and a charismatic singer from California, all of whom weren’t around in rock’s heyday, are going to be rock’s Flash Gordon. From the intro of “Showdown in Central Park” Bad City makes no apologies for being loud and sleazy. And they shouldn’t. The world needs dirty rock and roll to settle our stomachs after ingesting many years of bubblegum pop music. If radio gives Bad City’s “Take Me for a Ride” a shot, the Biebers of the world will be shaking in their purple high tops. But, Bad City isn’t an ‘80s hair band revival. The band takes the best parts of the genre and mixes them with hints of the Smashing Pumpkins, Queen, and a little Cheap Trick. It’s a unique sound that gives me the faith to say rock isn’t dead, it’s merely been hibernating, and the savage beast is about to wake. In “Do You Belive In Rock and Roll, ” singer Josh Caddy asks, “Do you remember rock and roll?” If your answer is no, Welcome to the Wasteland will jolt your memory. If you’re like me, and your answer is yes, then Bad City will save every one of us...just like Flash Gordon. www.showcasemagazine.com

Nutrition Tips: Always eat three meals each day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) plus two to three snacks each day ( mid-morning, late afternoon, and an optional late evening snack). Each meal and snack should consist of a protein, a carbohydrate, and water. Complex carbohydrates should be for breakfast and lunch, fruits for mid-morning and late afternoon, then veggies for dinner and late evening snack. Never miss meals and snacks. Missing will cause your metabolism to slow down and not burn as many calories or as much fat. Cut out the junk food (except for a reward meal or two each week).

Meal & Snack Ideas: Grilled chicken breast and asparagus Tofu with veggies Pecans on green salad with oil and vinegar dressing Walnuts on green salad Baked or grilled turkey breast and broccoli Grilled chicken, shrimp, onion, pepper, and cherry tomato Kabobs

Humble Gratitude by Paulette Dean

Executive Director, Danville Humane Society Perhaps you recently saw two videos that had been posted on YouTube. In one, a dog in Japan refused to leave his hurt friend, another dog. He actually led rescuers to the other dog. In the other one, a dog is seen pulling another dog that had just been hit by a car out of traffic. As I go into schools to talk about kindness to animals, I tell a true story about how a woman’s cat helped keep a parakeet safe from a neighbor’s cat. In my own experience, when my cat , Dusty, died, my dog, Katey, mourned her loss. I have had many other similar experiences. Recently, one of my cockatiels became very sad when my parrotlet died. I have also noticed how happy my cats are to see each other when one has returned from a visit to the veterinary clinic. I have always known, but now I really, really know that animals have emotions. It is difficult to gauge, or even know, how deep animals’ emotions are. It is even hard for us to completely understand what another human is feeling because of our different spheres of reference. Since we cannot communicate orally with animals, and their natural behaviors and characteristics may not be like ours, we simply cannot know the depth of their emotions.

My heartful thanks to all of you who voted me as “Favorite Financial Advisor” in 2010 and 2011 EDGAR M. LOVE Investment Executive 2725 Franklin Turnpike Danville, VA 24540 (877) 836-7923 elove@investdavenport.com

Sometimes, what an animal is feeling is quite obvious. We have seen dogs with embedded collars in their necks suddenly “come alive” when the collars are removed. They had been quiet and subdued, and then begin wagging their tails and even running joyfully when the object of the pain is gone. A few years ago, someone walking on the Riverwalk brought an abandoned ferret to us. Several days later, another ferret was found in the same area. The two ferrets greeted each other happily. A cat who had been brought to us by his owners became very quiet, and even depressed-looking. We found out that his owner had kept his brother, a cat he had lived with for six years. We carefully screen potential adoptive homes because we want to do everything that is in our power to ensure that all the physical needs, as well as the emotional needs, of the shelter animals will be taken care of in their new homes. The law can make you feed, water, and provide shelter for your animals, but it cannot make you love them and value them as sentient creatures with feelings and emotions. Animals have emotions. Perhaps their happiness or their sadness isn’t on the same level as ours. However, we do any animal a grave disservice when we assume that since we do not understand their emotions, the emotions do not exist.

Cherry The dog is a youngish, female spaniel mix.  Her name could be Precious or Sweetheart because she is those things, but we have named her Cherry.
