’m always amazed when August rolls around at how fast the summer has flown by. It seems only yesterday that everyone was making plans for vacations and now it’s time to get focused on the new school year. Some kids may be facing the shift into new schools as they advance from one level to another, some may be in their very first year of school, and some may be in their very last. Whatever the case, beginning the new school year off on a healthy foot is one lesson plan for success—for everyone.

With that in mind, we’re pleased to bring you our annual Health and Beauty Issue, with features on some of the area’s best professionals in the medical industry. Clarksville, Hopkinsville and the surrounding areas are blessed with some of the best in the business, so read more about their facilities and services. There’s a lot on the schedule to look forward to and August is a month of epic proportions…literally. One so epic, in fact, that people will be flocking to the area for the weekend leading up to August 21, when the first Total Solar Eclipse viewed by the entire United States in nearly a century will take place. As THE point of greatest totality, we’re definitely the place to be when the moon overtakes the sun; and with everyone’s eyes so trained on such a once-in-a-lifetime event, we’ve got reason to celebrate in a once-in-a-lifetime way. Make sure you’ve picked up your viewing glasses and created your cosmic calendar so that you don’t miss out on a single second of the phenomenal fun.

The community is certainly coming together for the festivities—but as we join for the celebration, we also have joined in remembrance of a wonderful man whose heart for service and love for people made him a shining example for Christ. In this issue, we say a heartfelt good-bye to Pastor Jimmy Terry and reflect on the ways that he touched so many. He will be missed, but the message of his ministry will continue on for generations to come.

Flying High “Havana Nights” S TO R Y & P H OTO G R A P H Y B Y L U C A S R YA N C H A M E B R S

Guests arrived for this year's Flying High Event, held at Old Glory Distilling Co., for what was one of the hottest tickets of the year. This yearly event is hosted by the Customs House Museum to help raise funds for what is one of Clarksville most memorable attractions. The theme for this year was “Havana Nights,” which gave guests an opportunity to dress in their most fashionable Cuban attire while being hosted by Joe Padula of Rewind 94.3. There was live Cuban music, a menu that was a perfect selection for the night, and, of course, drinks that were specially crafted by Old Glory Distillery for this event. A live and silent auction also gave everyone a chance to take home a piece of original local art and to contribute to a great cause. For information on next year’s Flying High and to know more about the Customs House Museum, visit www.customshousemuseum.org.

Dinner at the Drive-In S TO R Y & P H OTO G R A P H Y B Y TO N Y C E N TO N Z E

The Pennyroyal Arts Council recently teamed with Museums of Hopkinsville to host “Dinner at the Drive-In” at The Silo Event Center. These two groups have become well known for their decade-themed fundraisers. In previous years, guests enjoyed a 20s/30s theme, followed by a 40s-themed live radio show. This year's theme focused on the 1950s. Beautiful cars from the era were lined up outside the venue's entrance. Inside, women wearing poodle skirts and bobby socks, and men in rolledup blue jeans with slicked-back hair enjoyed diner-inspired menu items, 50's rock and roll, and Cat Lacy's photo booth. Memorabilia from Hopkinsville's seven local high schools decorated the room, and everyone had fun with this year's live auction. County Historian William Turner gave a brief presentation, and the evening concluded with a screening of the James Dean classic, Rebel Without a Cause.

Deb Haines-Kulick, Clarksville Association of Realtors’ (CAR) Executive Officer, hosted the group’s 10th annual fundraiser for F.U.E.L. at the Bud Barn. F.U.E.L. is a food subsidization program designed to feed children whose only food source may be the food they receive at school. Working with churches and local businesses, specific foods are gathered and then placed directly into the backpacks of needy students. “We are expecting about 200 people tonight,” Haines-Kulick said. “Tonight we have great food, music by the Jeremy Holt Band, a silent auction of donated items, and a live auction featuring artwork by Clarksville-Montgomery County School System students.” Haines-Kulick said CAR’s goal for this year’s event was to raise more than $12,000 for the F.U.E.L. program.

Mud Run S TO R Y & P H OTO G R A P H Y B Y TO N Y C E N T R O N Z E

Tyson and Ashlie Ezell recently organized Crofton, Kentucky’s first Burdoc Farms Mud Run, where runners of all ages ran a course through the woods and got a little muddy in the process. “We wanted to bring a fun event to the community,” Ashlie said. “We hope this is the first annual, with many more to come.” Approximately 200 people signed up for the event which included a five-mile run, one-mile fun run for all ages, and a Mini- Mudder for participants 8 and under. The 650 acre farm has been in the Shepherd family for more than 60 years. Since Keith and Sara took over the operation in the 1990’s the tobacco and cattle farm has been converted to a conservation farm, with a focus on timber management, wildlife habitat, recreation and agri-tourism. The property is gaining fame as a destination with a serene setting, great staff, and lots of structures, new and converted, that are perfect for weddings and other special events.

Welcoming { h o n o r i n g + c e l e b r at i n g v e t e r a n s } By Liesel Schmidt

Living in this post-9/11 world, we seem to have a more keen appreciation for the hard work and sacrifices made by our veterans. We respect them and marvel at their selfless bravery, thankful that they stand in defense of our freedoms and protect us from the threat of terrorism that has so shaken this nation— and the world—to its very core. But even in as many ways as we try to express our gratitude, far too often we fall short of giving them the honor and appreciation they truly deserve; and we go about our daily lives without realizing that our freedom to do those ordinary things is due to the sacrifices made by the men and women in uniform who serve or have served our country in military service. Unfortunately, it sometimes takes the prompting of national holidays to offer us a reminder to formally stand up and say thank you to our service members. But for those who live in the midst of military life—on the fringes of bases and posts, as members of a military family, as friends of those who serve—the costs and the trials are witnessed on a daily basis. Even in our shortcomings, however, we try our best as a nation to make their lives better, to honor them and reward their efforts. But that wasn’t always the case. For the men and women who came home from the Vietnam War, in fact, “thank you” was a phrase they rarely heard, respect something that few ever felt. In an effort to make amends and ensure that that lack of respect is never replicated, celebrations paying tribute to these brave men and women are held all over the country—and as a town deeply rooted in Army culture, Clarksville has taken on the meritorious mission of hosting Welcome Home Veterans 18 • VIP Clarksville Magazine | August 2017

Week in September, five full days of events and activities that highlight our heroes—both past and present. Originally begun five years ago in Pigeon Forge under the name Welcome Home Vietnam, the event was fittingly relocated to Clarksville in 2015 and was officially taken over by the tourism team at Visit Clarksville. And as the event grew in popularity and scope, the two-day span that it initially covered was expanded to cover five days, packing each of those days with everything imaginable, from concerts and Bob Hope tribute performances reenacting his tours entertaining the troops with the USO to parades and actual scale replicas of the Vietnam Wall. “The purpose of the event is to honor and celebrate all of our veterans, and that’s so important because Clarksville is a military town, and we have the honor of working beside and living with heroes everyday. Our Welcome Home Veterans celebration is a way to recognize our military community and share that celebration of service with veterans from all over the nation, and our ultimate goal is to ensure that each and every veteran from every theater of war knows how much they are respected and how grateful we are for their sacrifices,” says Frances Manzitto, Director of Tourism Sales at Visit Clarksville. But such a big mission can hardly be taken on alone, and the army of sponsors and supporters behind the even is critical in its success. And proudly taking on that major task is AARP. “AARP supports the efforts to empower veterans in communities across the country, and it’s one way that we, as an


And it will indeed touch many, with such exhibits as the 360 foot long American Veterans Traveling Tribute Wall depicting an 80 percent scale version of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, DC, containing every name etched on the original monument. Along with the Traveling Tribute Wall, the Field of Honor-Veterans Tribute flag display pays special tribute to the strength and unity of Americans and honors the many veterans who have faithfully served our nation to preserve our security and freedoms. “I’m so glad that Visit Clarksville saw the need for an event like this in our area and that AARP had the commitment and vision to see what it could become,” says Sherry Pickering, Executive Director of the Montgomery County Veterans Coalition, which worked in partnership with Visit Clarksville to bring the event to Clarksville. “It’s an amazing opportunity to celebrate our veterans and highlight their sacrifices and their determination to serve us and share some of their struggles.” During this year’s celebration, a traveling memorial called “The Eyes of Freedom: Lima Company Memorial” will be unveiled for the first time. Depicting the fallen Marines and Navy Corpsman of Columbus, Ohio-based Lima Company 3/25—one of the most heavily engaged units of Operation Iraqi Freedom—the memorial features 23 life-sized portraits honoring the bravery and ultimate sacrifice of the many men and women who have served our nation

“We care about those who have served our country, and AARP has free resources to active military and veterans." - A A R P C o m m u n i t y O u t r e a c h D i r e c t o r S ta c y P e n n i n g t o n

throughout history. The powerful gaze of these 23 pairs of eyes represent those who have stood watch over our country’s freedom, defending our liberty and seeing things that test their bravery, determination, and dedication to the mission they have taken on. In an area like Clarksville, those 23 pairs of eyes offer all the more powerful a message. “Many of the residents of Clarksville are active duty as well as retired soldiers, which means that it truly is a veteran community; and attending and supporting events like this truly shows pride in our veteran population as well as in out whole community,” says 35 year-old former soldier Ernesto Rodriguez, who joined the Army at the age of 19 and served for 15 years, taking on two deployments to Iraq and two to Afghanistan. After getting orders to Ft. Campbell in 2012, Rodriguez felt that he’d truly found a place to call home and decided to make the move a permanent one after separating from the Army. “To know that there are veterans and supporters coming from all over the country to share in this event is exciting, and it is truly an example of the importance of the military community.” It’s an importance that can never be stressed enough and a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid. But as we move on into our future as a nation, we celebrate the people responsible for the fact that we are still the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

Date Night S TO R Y & P H OTO G R A P H Y B Y TO N Y C E N TO N Z E

The Yellow Ribbon Fund recently hosted about 80 of its members at Old Glory Distilling Co. for what they called Date Night. Debbie Fields is YRF's Caregiver Event Coordinator. “We've been around for 20 years,” Fields said. “We take care of veterans who are wounded and/or disabled as well as their caregivers, and families.” Fields coordinates events in the Middle Tennessee/Southern Kentucky area. “We do everything from gun range events to scuba diving to Date Night,” Fields said. “We have coffee outings and dinners. Some events are just for caregivers, some are for families and some are for spouses. “Nicolettas supervised the catering and Anna Marie provided the entertainment for Date Night. A gentleman (his name and title?) from First Command Financial spoke to our guests about financial planning, life insurance and related topics. Other speakers included ___ (name them with their titles and topics). Fields says that YRF has found that by dressing up these events and making them fun they can get valuable information to its members. “We bring them out to a beautiful venue and serve them dinner,” Fields said. “It gives our members an opportunity to meet other veterans who have served in the same places as them. They can make new friends and learn about assistance provided for transitions in their lives,” she said.

CHANGE OF COMMAND S TO R Y & P H OTO G R A P H Y B Y TO N Y C E N TO N Z E

A ceremony was held Thursday, June 7 to honor outgoing Commander of the 502nd Infantry Regiment-- Col. Brett G. Sylvia. The day began with some presentations for Col. Sylvia and his wife, Lori. They were honored individually for the two years of outstanding leadership they have given to the 502nd. Mrs Sylvia and Mrs Escandon (Incoming Commander's wife) were presented with flowers. The troops stood in formation and were inspected by Col. Sylvia, Col. Escandon (Incoming Commander) and Maj. Gen. Poppas. Honors to the Nation, Invocation and Passing of the Colors were followed by brief speeches. The 502nd is known as Strike Brigade. Its motto is I am a Strike Soldier, I fight where I am told, and I win where I fight! Col. Sylvia spoke about the three pillars that make Strike Brigade so successful: its leaders, its families and its soldiers. “Strike Soldiers commit to only one outcome— winning,” said Col. Sylvia. “It's more than overcoming an adversary. Winning means service for a better world. Winning means extending beyond the immediate and the mundane, for the exceptional and the extraordinary. Winning for a Strike Soldier is a habit of excellence. In all they do, they are dogged, unshakable and unyielding.”

Members of the Special Forces Brotherhood Motorcycle Club came together for their 14th Annual Ride to Honor The Fallen. Dozens of riders participated in the event which covers more than 100 miles, beginning at Appleton’s Harley Davidson, meandering through parts of southern Kentucky, and ending at the SFBMC Chapter 38 Safe House. “Each year a Gold Star Ceremony is held at Fort Campbell to honor the fallen and their families,” SFBMC Vice President Cal Colapietro said. “The ceremony rededicates the memorials of 5th Special Forces Group’s fallen soldiers. “We hold a concert for the families on Friday night, Confederate Railroad was this year’s headliner. On Saturday, we do our annual ride, each rider takes a set of dog-tags with him/her to honor one of those fallen soldiers.” Heidi Hubbard, Samantha Ellis, Shelly Lochner & Brandy Martinez

Syd Hedrick & the Phalcons took to the porch at MB Roland Distillery Saturday, June 17, entertaining a huge crowd that brought kids, pets, lawn chairs and blankets, ready to kick off Pembroke's summer tradition of outdoor concerts. It was the first Pickin' on the Porch of the summer as the May 27th event had to be canceled due to severe weather. In 2017 the Pickin' series presents a total of seven events from May 27 - August 26 and it features some of the area’s favorite local performers along with an outstanding line of MB Roland products. MB Roland began in 2009 as Kentucky's first completely “grain to glass” distillery. This distillery now offers Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey, a unique Dark Fired Whiskey, and a variety of “Shines” from Kentucky Apple Pie to Kentucky Mint Julep and a dozen or so other flavors in between. For more information about MB Roland's products and a complete schedule of events, check out their website: www.mbroland.com.

totally ECLIPSED S T O R Y BY L I E S E L S C H M I DT

I

t’s a phrase that sounds somewhat ominous; but on August 21, 2017, it’s one that will lend momentous notoriety to Hopkinsville, Kentucky, as that’s exactly what this somewhat ordinary little community will become. As the epicenter for the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse, Hopkinsville will allow observers an optimal viewpoint for this once-in-a-lifetime event as the moon slowly makes its way to cover the sun, drenching the area in utter darkness for just under two and a half minutes before light is restored when the path is reversed. The whole process is forecast to begin around noon and will last more than an hour, with darkness falling at about 1:24 p.m. Young or old, avid astronomer or casual gazer, this is one phenomenon that’s certainly worth watching; and people are planning to take every advantage, booking up area hotels, buying tickets to eclipse-related events, and bringing the entire community an extreme amount of revenue by boosting tourism to astronomical levels. “We’re expecting around 100,000 visitors to our community throughout Eclipse weekend,” Solar Eclipse Marketing & Events Consultant Brooke Jung predicts. And those predictions mean major gains for the economy. “We anticipate that this will be a huge economic generator for our community and generate more than $30 million.” Rather than being over-ambitious or seemingly over the moon, it’s a projection that appears spot-on, given the unique position that Hopkinsville claims on the globe. “As the designated Point of Greatest Eclipse, Hopkinsville is the point where the moon’s axis is closest to the earth, which makes us especially appealing to astronomy enthusiasts,” explains Jung. Obviously, enthusiasts aren’t the only ones taking note, as the area has received reservations from people and officials all over the globe, a reported 38 states and 16 countries who all want to watch it all unfold. Included among their representation are crews from Time Magazine; the BBC; The Associated Press; The Wall Street Journal; CNN; CBS Sunday Morning; and the Chief Observer of the Vatican Conservatory, Brother Guy Consolmagno, as well as officials from NASA, who will be broadcasting live from the Point of Greatest Eclipse in Hopkinsville. Broadening the viewing audience, NASA and ASPSU will host a viewing event at Frontera Stadium including a live-feed online broadcast for worldwide wowing as well as a massive display playing out on the stadium’s scoreboard. Beginning at noon, a presentation will be given by members of APSU’s Department of Physics and Astronomy to provide scientific and historical information about the sensational spectacle. 40 • VIP Clarksville Magazine | August 2017

V I P S O L AR EC L I P S E G U I DE The whole of Trigg, Christian, and Clarksville-Montgomery counties will be getting in on the action, in fact, as local businesses, restaurants, and venues are going out of their way to make the event one to remember. Eclipse-inspired treats, eats, and even wines are being created to add to the fun, and the art community has been painting the town with moon madness of their own, putting their talents to work on everything from massive murals to bus stop benches. “Everyone is extremely excited about this event because it’s effecting our entire community, providing a huge economic opportunity for our area, but even more importantly, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime phenomenon that everyone will be able to witness right from their very own backyard,” says Bill Stevens, Executive Director of Cadiz-Trigg County Tourism. Joining in on the fun is Altra Federal Credit Union in Clarksville, offering a prime viewing spot for the eclipse complete with complimentary eclipse glasses and the chance to win a commemorative custom jewelry piece specially created for the momentous occasion. Open to the entire community as well as Credit Union members, the jewelry raffle will award one lucky winner a “Corona” pendant made by Elliot’s Jewelers, its stunning setting of black onyx encircled by a coronalike band of cubic zirconia fashioned to replicate the halo of white light that surrounds the moon as it eclipses the sun. The numbered, limited edition pendant is engraved to commemorate the event and fashioned to command attention. For this civic-minded financial institution, however, it’s more than a marketing ploy. It’s a great way to invest back into their community, celebrate their members, and offer a reminder of just how special the area really is. “The eclipse is an opportunity for Clarksville to showcase the community and our local businesses to people who are coming here to watch this amazing event unfold, and it really is the opportunity of a lifetime,” says Altra Federal Credit Union Retail Market Manager Rose Melton. “Our hope is that the eclipse will not only bring people now but will showcase our community and all it has to offer so that it will continue 42 • VIP Clarksville Magazine | August 2017

to be a destination for them in the future,” says owner of 8th Street Café and Main Street Tavern Paul Barnes. Situated in the center of it all in historic downtown Hopkinsville, Main Street Tavern is firing up everyone’s appetite for the phenomenal fun with two truly inspired additions to the menu—the Eclipseville Pizza and Burger. Loaded up on balsamic vinegar caramelized onions, crisp bacon, and blue cheese, they’re a total eclipse of flavors every bit as unique as the event inspiring them. Taking their own bite of this fantastic phenomenon is The Place - A Local Eatery in Hopkinsville, staying open 24 hours to keep hungry gazers fed and delight their diners with an eclipse-themed menu of dishes that are blindingly delicious. “We’re blessed to be witnesses to this, so we want to celebrate is as much as we can,” says Dean Place, who owns and operates the restaurant with his wife Myra Kaye. The celebration is on at Casey Jones Distillery, as well, where a four day festival of events is planned to keep spirits high, including a daily schedule of concerts featuring the musical talents of local artists as well as hot air balloon rides, distillery tours and tastings, great food truck eats, and phenomenal swag from the gift shop to commemorate the eclipse. Letting their ‘shine really shine, the distillery will also offer a limited edition Total Eclipse Moonshine, specially created and trademarked to give eye-opening flavor to this amazing event. “We’re having fun with it—you can taste the eclipse and have either a partial or total eclipse anytime!” laughs Peg Hayes, who owns the distillery with her husband Arlon Casey Jones. Toasting the celestial bodies at work, Beachaven Winery will be hosting “Blackout at Beachaven,” a truly toast-worthy event featuring live music, food, and wines—including a limited edition vintage called Blackout Blackberry, a delicious sparkling varietal with a fruity essence whose dark hue mimics the blackness of the sky as the moon makes its path across the sun. “We wanted it to be reflective of the fact that this is an cosmic event, which is why we chose to do a sparkling wine,”


Fun as it may be, however, there are some precautions to take, as staring directly at the eclipse is damaging to the eyes. For safety-sake, free viewing glasses will be available at local businesses and area sponsors, and grabbing a few pairs is highly recommended.

CREEKSIDE FARM ANTIQUES & RESTORATION 1057 BELMONT ROAD • CLARKSVILLE, TN www.CreeksideFarmAntiquesAndRestoration.com www.facebook.com/CreeksideFarmAntiques

Cover your eyes with eclipse glasses or a solar filtering viewer before looking at the sun and keep your eyewear in place until you have turned away from the sun. Do not look at the ether the un-eclipsed or partially eclipsed sun without a filtered optical device or through an unfiltered camera, telescope, or binoculars. Only at the point of full totality when the moon has completely covered the sun is it safe to look at the sun without protective eyewear.

explains Louisa Cooke, who co-owns the winery with her husband Ed. “When Dom Perignon invented champagne, the French monk likened it to ‘drinking stars,” so we thought doing something bubbly would be evocative of the cosmos.” For Beachaven, the eclipse is certainly worth popping a few corks. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime occasion, and we’re so lucky to have it happening in our own back yards! It will be a real opportunity to highlight Clarksville and show everyone what a great town we have here!” Over the course of their “Blackout,” the winery will also offer reserved spaces on their grounds for viewers who want to claim champagne-level seating. Putting their acres of outdoor space to good use as well, Burdoc Farms will be going whole-hog with three days of festivities, using the eclipse to launch their inaugural Bluegrass Music Festival, which they hope to spin into an annual event. Beginning with family fun at noon on Saturday, a complete lineup of concerts and movies will play out each day, with food and beer trucks on site to keep everyone fueled-up for the main event on the 21st, when Burdoc’s position as the second-highest spot in Hopkinsville makes it the prime-time prime place to be. “It can’t be said enough that this is something that won’t occur again in any of our lifetimes, and we’re fortunate enough to be directly in its path,” says Burdoc Farms owner Sara Shepherd. “That’s a draw unlike any other; and for a community like ours, it’s a wonderful way to show new visitors who we are.”

HOPKINSVILLE COMMUNITY COLLEGE

Mr. Eclipse

S TO R Y & P H OTO G R A P H Y B Y TO N Y C E N TO N Z E

Fred Espenak, also known as Mr. Eclipse, spoke to an enthusiastic crowd at Hopkinsville Community College June 22. Estimates suggest as many as 500,000 people could flock to the Southern Kentucky/Middle Tennessee area for the August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse with as many as 100,000 flooding the city of Hopkinsville, which has been deemed an ideal location to witness this historic solar event. Espenak, a retired NASA astrophysicist, is considered a leading expert on the subject. He has written more than a dozen books, and witnessed more than two dozen eclipses since 1972. Yvette Eastham, HCC Foundation Executive Director, and Brooke Jung, Eclipse Coordinator for Hopkinsville Parks & Rec's Eclipse Team, had the honor of introducing Mr. Espenak to a crowd of more than 100 curious fans of astronomy.

Eclipse Mural Reveal S TO R Y & P H OTO G R A P H Y B Y TO N Y C E N TO N Z E

Hopkinsville is poised to be one of the hot spots for the upcoming total solar eclipse August 21, and to celebrate, a mural was commissioned to commemorate the occasion. “We are so excited to add this beautiful piece of art to our downtown landscape,” Brooke Jung said. “It will be one of the iconic pieces that people will come to, and take pictures in front of, for years to come. Amy Peters created this for us. We love her, and her commitment to give back to the community through her art.” Peters took a minute to discuss the project. “A lot of this was inspired by a retro postcard,” Peters said. “The 1950s-era bright colors stood out to me, and I wanted words that would represent Hopkinsville. “This is kind of a melting pot of some of the things that we are known for, old and new: agriculture, Farrell’s burgers, the prophet Edgar Cayce, the clock tower at the old fire station and The Hoppers, our new OVL baseball team. If I had to tell people where I live and what it means to me, these are a few of the things that come to mind first.” The Amy Peters & William Turner “Eclipseville” mural can be seen on the side of a building next to Whistle Stop donuts on Ninth Street.

Ginny and Ron R. Hip and Knee Replacements

“With my new hip and his new knee, it’s hard to keep up with us!” Ginny’s hip hurt so much, she thought she’d never walk without pain again. But that was before her hip replacement at Tennova. As Ginny said, “Now, I exercise and do yoga with no pain whatsoever. And after Ron went through the process with me, he was so impressed that he scheduled his knee replacement just a few weeks later.” Ron said, “I had my surgery and was walking the same day. We’ve already referred several friends. That tells you a lot!” For more information about our orthopedic care or to register for a free seminar on joint pain, visit Tennova.com.

THE FAMILY SMILE BY LIESEL SCHMIDT

“She has her father’s smile.” It’s something often said of children carrying on the genetic traits of a parent, their grin seemingly reflective of a hereditary characteristic that visually ties one generation to the next. And when Jennifer Cornell purchased Back 2 Basics Dentistry from her father in 2011, she wasn’t just mirroring her father’s smile with her own bright beam—she was taking on her father’s practice of protecting and perfecting the beautiful smiles of her local community. Offering a wide range of services including comprehensive dental exams, same-day crowns using CEREC CAD/CAM technology, dental implants, adult orthodontics such as Six Month Smiles and Invisalign, sedation dentistry, 3D x-ray technology, and even smile-enhancing Botox and filler injections, Back 2 Basics is far more than just a basic dental practice. As a practice with three dentists whose industry expertise fortifies the reason to smile, Back 2 Basics is an office where taking care of teeth is more than just a job—it’s a mission. “Our greatest goal is to serve our patients with a quality dental experience that truly shows our passion,” says Cornell. “We take a personal interest in everyone and work closely with them to put their minds at ease and inform

them of the latest procedures and technologies that might help them achieve their long-term goals. We also strive to provide our patients with the tools and knowledge they need to prevent dental health issues both now and in the future, because we know how greatly daily care and maintenance will impact their oral health and their overall wellness.” Building on the basics of preventative care with regular dental check ups, dental cleanings, and use of topical fluoride, Back 2 Basics enhances their ability to serve their patients with the latest technologies available in the dental industry. “We use intra oral cameras, 3D digital x-rays, and oral cancer screening technology to detect oral health problems in the early stages and recommend conservative treatments that will prevent potential pain and suffering as they worsen,” explains Cornell. “It truly is amazing, as that technology also comes into play in detecting cavities with a greater degree of accuracy and allows us to virtually plan dental implants, map nerve canals, and see pathology in ways we could never do before. Making the proper referral can have a big impact on resolution of these issues and lead to better oral health.” And that’s one thing that’s always worth smiling about.

SLEEP WELL BY LIESEL SCHMIDT

on oral appliance therapy to treat dental sleep disorders including bruxism, snoring, and obstructive sleep apnea,” says owner and head dental practitioner Dr. Jennifer Cornell, DDS, FAGD, who expanded her practice at Back 2 Basics open Dental to Dental Sleep Solutions of Clarksville in 2012. “If we see risk factors for dental sleep disorders or sleep disorder breathing during the course of a dental exam, we offer our patients a free home sleep test to quantify the night-time grinding and clenching that results from bruxism, monitor snoring, and screen for any underlying sleep disorder breathing. From there, we can custom fabricate the appropriate oral appliance to the issue or make a referral for evidence of respiratory disorders.”

The quality of your sleep can have great impact on many things…including your ability to face the day with a smile. But the tie between the two goes deeper than many people realize, as proper oral health can actually affect your ability to get restful sleep.

It’s a critical issue, to be sure, as leaving things unaddressed can have the trickle-down effect of more than just interrupting your sleep. “Undiagnosed and untreated Bruxism and snoring can contribute to not only teeth, gum, and TMJ issues but also relationship problems. Sleep disorder breathing has the potential to be life threatening, as well, if it’s left undiagnosed or untreated, so we feel it’s extremely important to identify issues and resolve them as soon as possible.”

Snoring, teeth grinding, and sleep apnea are each often indicative of the state of dental health, and so Back 2 Basics Dental offers sleep-focused care at Dental Sleep Solutions of Clarksville, tying the two practices seamlessly to provide a more comprehensive level of care and address underlying oral complications that may be at the very root of sleep disorders. “We’re the only dental office in town that focuses

Working with a number of sleep labs and physicians in the area, Dental Sleep Solutions of Clarksville is also a DME provider for Medicare and files medical insurance to ensure that their patients are given proper care with the proper coverage. “Offering our patients the attention they need is a passion for us,” says Cornell. And they don’t rest until they’ve achieved success.

“…sleep oral appliances are the number one treatment avenue for mild and moderate sleep apnea and snoring.” THE ACADEMY OF SLEEP MEDICINE

Despite the ups and downs of so many industries, there are a few that remain not only steadily on-course, but also gaining great ground. Technology is pushing the beauty and medical industry further than ever, and so the need for specialists and experts in these fields is growing every day.

TIRED, HEAVY, ACHING LEGS? By Stephen F. Daugherty, MD, FACS, FACPh, RVT, RPhS

Are you noticing that your legs feel tired or heavy and ache at the end of the day? This is a common experience which some attribute to “old age” even though some will develop these symptoms as young adults. As time goes by, the symptoms worsen or one may notice enlarging veins in the ankles or legs, throbbing discomfort in the calves or thighs, swelling at the ankles, or a fine rash or discoloration at the ankles. All of these are frequent symptoms or findings due to progressive failure of the one-way valves in the veins of the legs. As more valves fail, venous blood which should be moving from the legs toward the heart starts to flow in reverse down the leg when we sit or stand. The pressure which builds up in the leg veins due to the reversed flow stretches the veins. No wonder the legs are uncomfortable at the end of the day! Most of us who live a normal life span eventually will develop problems with our leg veins. Genetics are the most important factors in development of varicose veins and failure of valves in the veins, called “venous insufficiency”. The inheritance pattern is complex, but Mom’s and Dad’s legs (and the underlying genetics) have a great deal to do with how much trouble we will have with our legs. Pregnancy accelerates the venous problem as hormonal changes

allow stretching of many tissues including leg veins and the pressure of the enlarged uterus compresses the veins in the pelvis which drain the legs. Fortunately, we do have some influence over our leg veins! Abdominal obesity compresses the veins in the pelvis and worsens the venous pressures in the leg veins. Weight management clearly is important to manage or reduce the severity of leg vein problems. Exercise, especially exercise which involves us of the calf muscles, improves muscular pumping of blood out of the legs. Frequent walking and avoidance of prolonged sitting or standing lowers the pressures in the leg veins. Periodic elevation of the legs higher than the heart may help with swelling or discomfort by using gravity to assist movement of venous blood and fluids out of the legs.

TennesseeVeinCare.com

Graduated elastic compression hose provide a boost to pumping the blood out of the legs and they limit the stretch of the veins and skin that occurs during the time that our legs are lower than our heart. But, as useful as compression hose may be, they do not solve the underlying problem of venous insufficiency. The evaluation and treatment of varicose veins and venous insufficiency has undergone revolutionary changes over the past 15 years and the revolution continues with better minimally-invasive office treatments for most venous problems. Individuals who have unexplained swelling of the legs, soft tissue leg pain or tenderness, enlarging varicose veins, new rashes in the lower calf or ankle, or leg wounds that are difficult to heal should be evaluated by a specialist in management of venous disorders to look for correctable problems which will only get worse with time if not identified and treated. Progressive limitation in life due to leg vein problems is NOT inevitable. Much can be done for most to prevent complications and limitations of activity, but only if you seek help. While some treatment of veins is cosmetic, when symptoms develop, the problem no longer is cosmetic. GET YOUR LEGS BACK!

HEALTHY ROOTS BY LIESEL SCHMIDT

Living a healthy life involves more than just being active and eating your fruits and veggies—it also comes down to the quality of the food you’re putting on your plate, and in these high-paced days of packed schedules when meals often come down to convenience factor, it can be easy to lose sight of the importance of what, exactly, you’re putting into your body. Since opening in 2014, Yvonne Chamberlain and her health-minded team at Tree of Life Center in Clarksville have been offering customers a whole market of ways to eat better, feel better, and live better, providing a wide selection of natural foods including everything from gluten-free and vegan options to Paleo and organic items that aren’t offered on the shelves of every market in town. “We want our customers to have the tools they need to get their health on track,” says Chamberlain. And a high-quality food market is just one of the tools they provide. Much like the company’s emblematic tree, health has many branches, and so Tree of Life Center serves as a one-stop shop for bringing together the services of local crafters and health-based businesses including massage therapy, martial arts, yoga, and even music therapy. “We’re more than just a grocery store,” Chamberlain explains. “My motto is 'wellness is the new lifestyle,’ and I’ve built this to be the place where that lifestyle can be brought to bear.” And that’s one plan for success that’s got great roots.

SCRUBBING IN BY LIESEL SCHMIDT

When your daily wardrobe is limited to scrubs, it can seem like a less-than-inspiring rotation of work wear is in your future. But trends have made their mark on the medical industry, giving rise to scrubs and medical accessories that offer the chance for colorful self-expression even in the most sterile of settings. Since coming on-call as the new owners of Scrubs Depot in early spring of 2017, Megan and Jeremy Hite have made the store an even bigger success in the local community, expanding their inventory of work wear in addition to offering a wide selection of shoes and small medical equipment that will really get your blood flowing. “We pride ourselves on our unparalleled level of customer service, and we go above and beyond to give all of our clients the very best,” says Megan. And that dedication to customer care keeps them on the move, going so far as to provide mobile shows that literally bring the store to their clients’ locations, setting up shop at local medical facilities, clinics, and offices so that their selection of inventory is conveniently on call. “We’re dedicated to serving the local medical community in the way that they serve us, and this is really one way that we can do that,” Megan explains. But mobile sales are just the beginning, as they also offer various discounts and promo programs for students, military, grads, and even some of the local medical facilities and offices they work with. “It’s important to us to build a relationship with our clients, so we’re always looking for ways and ideas to better our community and help others.” With a practice like that, they’re definitely scrubbing in for success.

It sometimes seems the beauty industry is constantly being given a face-lift, and with all the new treatments and products being introduced onto the scene, it can be a bit challenging to know who’s really got it together and who’s just a pretty face. Using their more than 17 combined years of medical expertise, nurse practitioners Ellery Naghtin and Amy Wells joined forces to open Enhance The Aesthetics & Wellness Co. in June of 2017 with the focused vision of bringing a superior level of aesthetic care to their local community in Hopkinsville and highlight the natural beauty they saw just waiting to be enhanced. “This is something we both feel extremely passionate about, so we work with all of our clients to fully educate them on the treatments that will be most beneficial to them and offer customized

solutions that will really help restore their self-image,” says Naghtin. “Our greatest success lies in providing our clients with the latest advancements in treatments and products in the industry so that they can be more confident in their appearance and see themselves for the uniquely beautiful individuals they are,” adds Wells. Currently offering Botox and Botox parties that can be set up on-site for their clients, Enhance will expand their list of services in September to include Kybella as well as facial fillers for deep lines and wrinkles. With further plans to add Platelet Rich Plasma injections, micro-needling, and micro-channeling, Naghtin and Wells are positioning their new business to be a stunning success; but they know that real beauty is more than skin deep. “Giving back is a beautiful thing, so we donate a portion of our proceeds to our clients’ charities of choice when they book a Beauty for a Cause event,” Naghtin says. In an industry that can sometimes seem superficial, it’s a wonderful way of keeping it real—and that’s an enhancement the whole world can appreciate.

THE FIRST ANNUAL

MEMORY

Formal events with eveningwear and hors d’oeuvres have an air of exclusivity about them, but there’s nothing exclusive about Alzheimer’s disease, as this heartbreaking condition is no respecter of persons, ravaging the body and the mind to steal memories and stripping people of cognitive function like a thief with no conscience.

ball

“Each and every one of us knows someone who is directly affected by the disease or have family members with Alzheimer’s,” says Clarksville Alzheimer’s Walk Co-Chair Cindy Hancock. “When you see a loved one losing not only their memories, but also their ability to lead a normal life, it’s absolutely devastating. People have a connection to that, and they want to do anything they can to see it come to an end.” Bringing that goal closer to success is the Alzheimer’s Association work to apprehend and this quiet criminal and stop it in its tracks, organizing events that raise both awareness and much needed funds to finance research that will hopefully one day bring an end to the tragic disease and the suffering it causes. Throughout the year, the Association works tirelessly to remind people that the fight is not yet over and maintain their much needed support, signing up teams for The Walk to End Alzheimer’s and hosting great fundraisers like this year’s first annual Memory Ball. Limited to 250 ticketed guests, the semi-formal Memory Ball will be held at The Clarksville Golf and Country Club on September 16, 2017, from 8:00 p.m. to midnight. In show of support for Alzheimer’s, attendees are encouraged to wear purple attire as they dress up for four hours of truly memorable fun including a silent auction, dancing, delicious appetizers, professional photo-ops, and some high-energy music from a local DJ on-hand to take special song requests that will keep the dance floor swinging. “The event is an important way to support the Clarksville Walk to End Alzheimer's and create more awareness of the resources available from the Middle Tennessee Alzheimer's Chapter, and we’re committed to accelerating the global progress of developing new treatments, preventions, and—ultimately—finding a cure,” says Hancock. “The Alzheimer’s Association provides families with support and resources in their journey of dealing with and living with Alzheimer’s, and our community support is one of our biggest weapons. By joining together, we can encourage, celebrate, and honor our loved ones living with the disease.” And that’s a cause we should never forget.

TAKING THE TRAIL By Liesel Schmidt

C

hildhood development takes place in their first five years of life, so those are the years that play a critical role in shaping their futures, affecting everything from the way they form relationships to the way they comprehend the world and take on challenges. Unlike older children and adults, these pint-sized people don’t learn by reading books—they learn by seeing and doing. By touching and smelling and tasting. By getting their hands dirty and trying themselves out for themselves. Every experience they have is one that feeds into their future, and so the dedicated teams at United Way have launched programs all across the nation in hopes of expanding the horizons of children whose potential is just waiting to be tapped. As part of a national campaign called Born Learning, United Way of the Greater Clarksville Region, Inc., put plans into action to install The Born Learning Trail at Liberty Park, where the citizens of Clarksville could enjoy the trail and bring their little ones to get some truly hands-on learning.

“Everyday life is a learning experience for children, and the Born Learning campaign is geared toward helping parents, caregivers, and communities use everyday moments to boost the school readiness of preschool aged children...”

says CEO Ginna Holleman. “The quality of a child’s early learning experiences is critical to their success in school, and we believe the trail will be a valuable community resource for early learning because it promotes education in a fun and interactive way—which is an essential component of early childhood learning. The trail is going to be an extremely useful tool in helping local children boost their language, reading, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills; and it offers families a place to be active and elevate awareness of early childhood education,” she explains. “We’re very hopeful that the trail will also become widely used throughout the community as a unique outdoor classroom for activities like story times, back-to-school drives and events, homeschool outings, daycare and preschool outings, children’s health fairs or events, and family picnics.”

represented diverse segments of community members who all lent their time, talents, and effort to install the trail, and many brought their entire families to participate,” says Holleman. “It was heart-warming to see preschool-aged children actively helping create this trail and witness the parental support encouraging them along the way; and it really provides a visible symbol of our city’s commitment to children and healthy family lifestyles.”

The project was a perfect partnership between the City of Clarksville and the United Way of the Greater Clarksville Region, who worked together with a number of volunteers to install the trail and bring it to colorful life. Along the 300 foot-long trail, the unique and vibrant artwork and handiwork of local artists and volunteers keeps things looking lively, and signage at each of the 10 interactive outdoor play stations encourages parents, caregivers, and children to get active, learn, and bond.

From first station to last, every stop on the trail is a reminder that learning can be fun, that getting your hands in there is something we can all benefit from doing—no matter how old we get. And that’s a lesson that even the littlest child can teach us.

“This unique project helped connect volunteers more closely with community change work and provided them with an exciting hands-on opportunity to make a difference. All of the volunteers

Officially opening the trail during a ribbon cutting ceremony on June 21 was an assembly of excited preschoolers from the Lafayette Road Head Start, who joined Holleman and United Way volunteers, Mayor of Clarksville Kim McMillan, and Clarksville Parks and Recreation Director Jennifer Letourneau before they busted loose to try out the trail for themselves. “This trail is such a wonderful way to make our beautiful Liberty Park an even better place for our children and provides them with a truly natural learning environment, right out in nature where they can get some fresh air and exercise as well as a mental boost that helps them learn and be healthy,” says McMillan. And that’s certainly something to smile about—for anyone of any age. “The smiles I see every time I pass the trail speak for themselves, but it’s fantastic to hear people’s energetic responses and see them using the trail and actively engaging outdoors,” Holleman says.

Leaving a Legacy of Godliness Remembering Pastor Jimmy Terry Sr. By Liesel Schmidt

It was Jesus’ example of going out and making Himself a part of the people He came to save—walking among them, eating with them, sharing time with them, listening to them—that serves as the basis for the church today, and only by following that pattern of having a heart for the people does His love fill the world. It was his deep understanding of that that gave Pastor Jimmy Terry, Sr., his natural ability to connect with the world around him—speaking God’s love even when he uttered no words and showing the face of Jesus to everyone who was blessed by the kindness of his smile.

losing my father last year, his kindness, godly spirit, and friendship became invaluable in getting me through my sorrow. Pastor Terry was an incredibly special person, and we are all blessed that he made Clarksville his home and his mission field. He was a major part of what makes Clarksville a ‘Great Place to Live.’”

It was with great sadness that the people of Clarksville said goodbye to the man who had so faithfully served for more than 30 years as head pastor of Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church and founder of Tabernacle Christian School in late June, when he was called home to his Savior after battling prostate cancer. But regardless of his passing, Pastor Terry’s legacy of speaking Jesus’ love is one that will endure in the lives of the people he met, and that legacy will go on to change the world.

was immediately impressed with his ability to articulate

“Pastor Terry left some very big shoes to fill,” says Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett. “He was a man of tremendous faith, taking it wherever he went and sharing that faith with anyone he came in contact with, whether it was at a local nightclub, a formal community event, or just riding around town in his car—everywhere was a mission field for this wonderful man of God. His true congregation was all the people of Clarksville and Montgomery County. We truly lost our community’s spiritual leader, and he will be greatly missed.” “He was an individual that would I certainly call the ‘Spiritual Father’ of the Christian community in the city of Clarksville,” agrees Bishop Calvin Lockett of Christ the Healer Church. In the true spirit of using every moment for speaking life and love, Pastor Terry made Kingdom-mindedness his business—and he showed others the importance of that, as well. “I first met Pastor Terry when I moved to the area more than 20 years ago, but I got to know him on a much more personal level when he became a Director at Legends Bank during its founding in 1998,” says President and COO of Legends Bank Tommy Bates. “I was always amazed at how much he made speaking Jesus into every situation a priority—in life and in business. He was always quick with a hug and truly took time to listen if you had any concerns; and when I sought his counsel and support after

“When I met my husband in 1970 at a church service, I his faith and his commitment to Jesus Christ. He has always been futuristic in his thinking and ready to conquer the impossible, and God allowed him to create necessary bridges in an effort to bring all walks of life together. I thank God that He allowed me to spend 43 years of marriage with this great man of God, and my prayer is that I will [be able to] continue his ministry.”

Servella Terry Among others sharing that sentiment is Charlie Koon, recently elected Clarksville Area Chamber of Commerce President and Director of Workforce and Economic Development at Workforce Essentials, Inc. “This was a man who gave his life in service of others. His church, the school he started, his students, family and friends all stand has a testament to his loving and giving nature along with the yard signs he placed throughout Clarksville, the hugs he gave willingly, and the genuine ‘I love you’s’ he said without hesitation hundreds of times a day,” says Koon in a heartfelt letter published by The Leaf Chronicle. “The impact he made on all of us who knew him will live on.” For the Clarksville community, that’s a blessing and a legacy beyond imagination.

Jon-Michael St. Amant, Food & Beverage Director at Miss Lucille’s took a moment to share his thoughts on the local eatery’s 2nd Annual Peach Party. “Tonight we have 175 people coming out to enjoy two live bands on our outdoor stage, Love-struck followed by Carl Wockner,” St. Amant said. “And, a ton of great peach inspired food, hickory-smoked peach barbecue babyback ribs, chicken street tacos with peach chutney, and peach, pepper & pork skewers.” This is the second year for the event which is scheduled around the route of The Peach Truck, a Georgia legend. Guests this year were also treated to a special beer on tap, a peach flavored brew from Paris, Tennessee’s Perrylodgic Brewery. “Each year The Peach Truck tours the southeast and then heads up north for a few stops,” St. Amant said. “We usually throw a party on the last stop of the tour, but this year the peaches came early so we are their second or third stop. These peaches are from the promised land of peaches. They pick them at their peak, and the season is short.”

Hundreds of supporters showed up for the Christian County Humane Society’s annual Spay-ghetti Dinner at The James E. Bruce Convention Center. Guests enjoyed a spaghetti dinner with a choice of sauces, salad, bread and dessert. After dinner, they were treated to an exciting live auction. All proceeds from the event go toward animal population control efforts in and around Christian County. “Ticket sales have done very well this year,” CCHS Director Irene Grace said. “We’ve had lots of donations for our buy-it-now table, and there is no telling how many items have been donated for this year’s auction. Last year, this event raised $14,000, and it’s all thanks to our donors.” Grace says the situation is getting better, thanks in part, to this community’s efforts in recent years. “We use these funds to spay and neuter cats and dogs in Christian, Todd, Trigg and Caldwell Counties. Spaying and neutering is the only way to control the population, and our efforts have made a big difference. “I just want to say thanks to everyone who supports our programs. This is a wonderful and giving community. They are always willing to help us so much.”

Flag Day Ceremony S TO R Y & P H OTO G R A P H Y B Y TO N Y C E N TO N Z E

Clarksville’s Custom House Museum hosted a Flag Day Ceremony June 14 with special guest speaker Dr. Dewey Browder, Professor Emeritus of History at APSU. Dozens gathered inside the museum for a presentation by Dr. Browder which focused on a contemporary view of patriotism in America. Dr. Browder posted the Webster’s Dictionary definition of the word Patriot - One who loves his country and supports its authority and interests. He then, in a sobering way, shared his thoughts on how patriotism itself sometimes suffers when we are forced to deal with today’s divisive issues.
