Recently they opened a new clinic in Livingston, one in Fairfield Glade and are planning to acquire a hospital in Celina. Having had a presence in the Cumberland County area for several years through health fairs and community health seminars, CRMC has taken it a step further with the opening of the new primary and speciality care clinic on Peavine Road. The Fairfield Glade Clinic of Cookeville Regional is now open and staffed by family nurse practitioner Elaine Howard, FNP. It will be Elaineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job to care for patients who have minor illnesses and injuries.

Elaine Howard, Family Nurse Practitioner Fairfield Glade Clinic of Cookeville Regional

Howard has over 40 yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; experience in health care. In addition, specialty physi-

cians from Cookeville Regional are routinely available in the clinic each week so that patients will have the convenience of seeing them in the Fairfield Glade area instead of traveling to Cookeville for every visit. Specialists available in the clinic include: cardiologists, orthopedic surgeons, a pulmonary medicine specialist, gastroenterologist, and a general/vascular surgeon along with other specialists in the future. The clinic is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a regional referral medical center, it is important for our hospital to expand its services to other communities,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Menachem Langer, CEO of Cookeville Regional. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also opened a specialty clinic in Livingston to provide cardiology

services there. Community outreach is important to us and we are pleased to offer these services in other communities.â&#x20AC;?

Code 37 Protocol

Another way Cookeville Regional is expanding into other communities is through the development of the Code 37 protocol to help in the treatment of heart attacks. Through the dedicated efforts of cardiologists Stacy Brewington, M.D. and Brian Dockery, M.D. along with hospitals and area ambulance services including Cumberland Medical Center and Cumberland County EMS, Cookeville Regional and ambulance services in the region have partnered together !""#5+B5##$%"&'

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the CLOCK beat YOU During a heart attack, every minute counts. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because, according to the American College of Cardiology, if the heart is in distress for longer than 90 minutes, heart muscle and other organs can become damaged beyond repair. The Heart and Vascular Center of Cookeville Regional is consistently beating the 90-minute standard by more than half. CRMCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s average time for stopping a heart

attack is 43 minutes! As a matter of fact, we have been recognized by HealthGradesÂŽ as being in the top 5% in the U.S. and #1 in Tennessee for coronary intervention (stopping heart attacks). And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the only health care facility in the region with interventional capabilities to stop a heart attack and perform surgery if necessary.

)<C?#'#D1.;-9264#E/2+-7-78-9/.0#7"#14;#31:3>#F#G1>.#H--,4-? My earliest memories about sports has the name and face of John Teeples in a prominent place. He was the head football coach at my alma mater, Celina High School, from before I can remember. I was blessed to have him as my coach, as well as mentor. He lived a $%&#&'()*+ wonderful life. #()*+,-". He died in June at the age of 86, bringing to an end a career that spanned his entire life. Even though he quit coaching over 30 years ago, he never quit encouraging people, young and old, to do their best. To me, he was a coach right up to the end. He was one of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Greatest Generation.â&#x20AC;? He served in the Navy in WWII. His career as an educator and coach began after graduating Tennessee Tech University with a degree in Biology. I loved being in his classes. He taught like he coached. He used â&#x20AC;&#x153;tough loveâ&#x20AC;? in everything. He demanded your best effort and we gave it at his command. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know of a soul who â&#x20AC;&#x153;playedâ&#x20AC;? for him who would not run through a brick wall at his suggestion. Due to his coaching style, he was ultra successful. He would beat your brains out and make you like it. He had the respect of every opposing coach he ever faced, most of which often â&#x20AC;&#x153;whipping boysâ&#x20AC;? for his superior teams. He coached football, boys and girls basketball without an assistant and without a coaching supplement. He knew how to develop players and he was a great game-day coach. It was his game and he was in total control. In addition to being a legendary high school coach, he started little league baseball in his hometown and

later coached and sponsored there. I have heard my cousin Karl Napier say, that he was a Cardinal fan way back, for no other reason than they were Coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team. That was the kind of influence he had on people. I played football and basketball for him. He could make you nervous for sure, but he could also get a level of play out of you that you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know you had. All this I am writing about him is being read by people who never knew him. He was not from Crossville and we did not play Crossville. Most of my readers are not natives of Tennessee, but I know you will appreciate the kind of man Coach Teeples was. Perhaps this story will make you think of your old high school coach. Right up to the moment I walked down the aisle helping to carry his casket as a pall bearer, I thought of how I would miss him. He has been a constant in my life since I was a little boy. I will miss shaking Mr. Teeplesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hand and seeing that optimistic smile and hearing him say,â&#x20AC;&#x153;How you doing, Don?â&#x20AC;? and knowing he meant it. But most of all, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss the stories -- he could take you back 50 years in an instant with a story about â&#x20AC;&#x153;Punkinâ&#x20AC;? Smith or Charles Vaughn or Earl Davis.

For years we have all used Coach Teeples as our â&#x20AC;&#x153;sourceâ&#x20AC;? when we wanted to know something about the old days. He was a walking dictionary of Clay County sports. Folks, that is lost forever. He was also a lifetime fan and supporter himself. That is something we sometimes forget about. He will be missed. Kevin Donaldson, my longtime editor when I owned the newspaper in Celina many years ago, may have said it best.â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any more like him coming along, and may never again - a man who contributed in SO MANY DIFFERENT AVENUES in life. I know several folks who contribute greatly in one or two fields, but his body of work is almost unbelievable when you stop and take it all in: educator and coach, military service, successful businessman, civic leader in multiple fields, elected official, and just an overall fine man. He served his community, school and nation almost as long as many people live. My only regret in knowing him is that I did not know him better.â&#x20AC;? NOTE - He is survived by son Patrick Teeples, an assistant principal at Stone Memorial High School in Crossville.

Ken Burnett passes away

A long-time acquaintance of mine who became a good friend over the years, Ken Burnett, died recently after a long illness. He was a regular at Mitchellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Drug Storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roundtable until his health got to the point that he was no longer able to make the trip in to town. We miss him. Born during the Great Depression in 1927 to a farmer and a housewife, Ken spent his early childhood living in an era of hard times and he was quick to tell you about it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were poor, but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know it at the time because everyone else

was, too,â&#x20AC;? he said.â&#x20AC;&#x153;I delivered papers, sold rosebud salve, anything to make just a nickel.â&#x20AC;? After graduating from Cumberland County High School in 1945, Burnett immediately entered the Navy. Before his military duty would end, he served in China at the end of World War II and in the Korean War, reporting for active duty in 1951. In 1959, Burnett became a licensed pilot and began flying his own plane to many of the places he visited for !""#(I!E)JK*+##$%"&/

We’ve also added 14 new physicians to our medical staff this year with more to come.”



to activate treatment of a heart attack sooner than ever before. Once the ambulance staff determines through an EKG that the patient is having a heart attack, they are now able to activate the “heart team” of cardiologists and cardiac catheterization staff at Cookeville Regional from the field. That way, patients arrive at the hospital with the team waiting on them to immediately begin the procedure to stop the heart attack. The gold standard for stopping a heart attack is 90 minutes according to the American College of Cardiology. The Heart and Vascular Center at Cookeville Regional is averaging 43 minutes from the time the patient arrives at the hospital to the time that their heart attack is stopped. By working together with EMS personnel, we are reducing the amount of time it takes to stop a heart attack,” continued Dr. Langer. “We recently had a patient from this area whose heart attack was stopped within 70 minutes from the time EMS did his EKG in Cumberland County to the time that his heart attack was stopped in the cardiac cath lab. That’s including the time it took to travel to Cookeville and to do the procedure. That’s a phenomenal time. Of course, the best result is that the patient is doing very well and is already getting back to his normal activities.”

Cumberland River Acquisition

Not only has Cookeville Regional expanded into Cumberland County, but the medical center is also purchasing Cumberland River Hospital in Celina. We are looking forward to having Cumberland River Hospital as a part of our system of health care services,” continued Dr. Langer. “This acquisition will be a win-win for both hospitals.

Louis says he has made several “signs” since moving to Crossville 14 years ago from Cleveland, Ohio. This new sign, he says, is his largest. The message is filled with chosen bible verses and other religious icons. He uses the same weaving technique to make other items, including a small basket that we bought from him for $10. It is an art he learned from his father when he was 13 years old and he will make custom signs if you would like to hire him to do so. This particular one (in the photo) is not for sale. He said that it would take six months to build one like it. Starting in 2001, he made one of his “signs” from nearly 6,000 packs of cigerettes. He sold it.

The pricing in the Vanity Fair store is different today than it was when we first opened, but our prices are still very competitive and we continue to have outstanding sales on many national brands. There are 22 businesses in the Mall today, which is now known as Crossville Outlet Center. There is 152,191 square feet of floor space in the mall and one restaurant, Subway.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We enjoy a great relationship with the City, the Chamber of Commerce, Fairfield Glade and the entire county,â&#x20AC;?Andrews said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also love all the walkers who use our facility daily.

By DON NAPIER Habitat for Humanity has been partnering with families in Cumberland County since 1996, giving a “hand-up” to people in need. As of today, they have completed an incredible 53 new homes in the county, making the dream of home ownership a reality for people, who before had no hope. Habitat offers an interest-free mortgage with low monthly payments to families willing to complete 500 hours of “sweat equity” in the project. As part of this requirement, Habitat families often acquire the skills needed to become successful homeowners through classes and practical, on-the-job experience. As a way to raise money, a small group of volunteers decided to have a sale every Saturday with the proceeds benefiting Habi-

tat. That effort started in 1998, and it resulted in enough funds to enable the organization to move into their new, 10,000 square foot building located at 329 McLarty Lane. They moved in 10 years ago. By 2003, a craft department was established and five years later, an expansion was added to the Habitat Warehouse, and they are still growing. The Cumberland County Habitat is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, an ecumenical Christian Ministry that helps build simple, decent, affordable housing in partnership with God’s people in need. The local chapter of Habitat is committed to the achievement of Equal Housing Opportunity throughout the nation. Habitat is operated almost entirely by volunteers, so there is always a need for volunteers to help promote the Habitat family in Crossville. If you have time and energy to donate

to Habitat, you can join a committee, work in the HomeStore, work on a building site, or help with the pick-up of donations. Habitat’s success depends on the generosity of donors and volunteers. They make it easy to help. If you would like to help Habitat, call them at 484-4565. If you would like to make a donation to Habitat but cannot bring the items in, call and some of their friendly volunteers will drive the truck to your home for the pick-up. One of the best ways to recycle, is to donate your used goods, building supplies, lumber, etc. to Habitat. All donations are tax deductible. The Habitat HomeStore carries an endless variety of furniture, household items, sporting goods, books, electronics and many yet undiscovered treasurers. The inventory changes daily, so shop often for the best variety. Remember, when you donate to the HomeStore or shop at the HomeStore, you

are helping Habitat and eventually, you are helping your fellow man. The HomeStore is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

ing hospice patients to our area as some of our patients, likewise, travel out of area for family visits, camping, vacations, etc. On-going support and education for the entire family is another key element of hospice services. The more a loved one understands what is going on, the better that loved one can cope, manage, and avoid ‘provider fatigue and frustrations’ that often hamper quality of life for all involved. Families can also take advantage of Cumberland House (a six suite 24/hour care facility here in Crossville) for up to five days of respite care of an individual to allow family members to have a duty free five days for whatever they want and know that their loved one is well cared for. In most cases, the five days of respite is at no cost. Also Cumberland House is

available for the emergency times when an individual is experiencing acute needs that are more than can be provided at home. Once the situation has stabilized the individual can return home with all involved feeling better and not worn out by the situation, and as with respite most times at no cost. When one’s worry and stress of providing for is LESS, then they can just love and enjoy MORE. Every day our employees get to see the good they do and how they have benefited an individual/family. One may have great compassion and caring for a person, and even sadness, but never depressed for having help lighten the load. Hospice is “so much more.” • Hospice of Cumberland County is always happy and willing to discuss hospice services and give educational presentations to families or groups.

FACED WITH THE DILEMMA OF CARING FOR YOUR PARENTS? Did you know that Long-Term Care Insurance can cover Nursing Home, Home Health Care, Assisted Living and Adult Day Care? LongTerm Care Insurance could be the answer to how you are going to care for your parents when they are unable to perform everyday tasks, commonly referred to as "Activities of Daily Living," (ADL). Americans are living longer and the longer they live, the more likely they will need assistance due to chronic conditions. This type of assistance is commonly referred to as "Long-Term Care."

The City of Crossville State Team Championship, honoring PGA Professional and Tennessee Tech golf coach Bobby Nichols, was held at Lake Tansi Village Golf Club on Monday and Tuesday, July 30-31. Ideal weather conditions on both days greeted 25 teams to the 36-hole event at Lake Tansi to compete for the championship. Four teams tied after the first day with identical scores of 12-under. Five teams came in at 11-under par 61 and three others at 10-under 62 to stay right on the heels of the leaders and put pressure on them going into day two. Casey Flenniken, PGA of Landmark Golf Club of Avalon fired a very impressive 6-under par 66 to capture the individual low round of the day. The team of Loren Personett, Paul Brannon, Matt Jeffers, and Todd Bradley, who came in with a score of 12-under par 60 to go with their first day total of 61 for a 36-hole team score of 23-under par 121 and the right to be called champions. The individual stroke play low scores saw regular amateur James Van De Griff shoot a 68-66 for a total of 10-under par 134.

Bob Rice had the low score for the Senior Amateurs shooting 69- 69 for a 6-under par 138 while Randy Helton took home the low score in the Senior Professional Division firing a 69-68 for a 7-under par 137.

J16<>-9.#J<:9?#J"7,>1./3#!9:??#:..16.3-#^<>#'../A-9?:9"#?-:?1. By DWIGHT WAGES The Southern Stars Symphonic Brass (SSSB) have secured their concert dates and venues and are excited to announce the outstanding events for their 5th Anniversary season. The 30 piece professional instrumental ensemble is coming off of a very successful 2011/2012 concert series which culminated with their performance with Nashville guest artists Buddy Greene and Jeff Taylor last April which drew a record audience of nearly 800. That concert doubled the normal attendance and introduced a significant segment of first time attendees to hear the SSSB who came away extremely impressed with their brand of Premium Entertainment. The 2012/2013 ticketed Crossville concert season will include the following dates: • Fall concert on Sat. , Sept. 8 at 7 p.m. at Stone Memorial HS Auditorium. This concert is themed “Virtuoso Brass” and will feature the band’s own outstanding musicians with a variety of selections which will showcase the talented musicians that make up this ensemble. In addition to this, the SSSB will present a variety of marches, broadway/movie music which will please any audience member. • Winter concert on Sun. , Feb. 17 at 3 p.m. at Stone Memorial HS Auditorium. This concert is themed “Who’s Got JR?”. We all remember the big question from the TV hit Dallas, which was “Who Shot JR?”. Well the SSSB have their own bit of suspense, as they are expecting to weave a concert full of music selections

from a wide variety of music genres, that will have the audience wondering what can be next! Negotiations with a guest artist are underway, but are not concrete at this time to be able to make that public. • Spring concert on Sat., April 20 at 7 p.m. at the Central Baptist Church. This concert is themed “Strings Attached!” and will feature as guest artist, Pete Huttlinger, who is recognized as a virtuoso acoustic guitar musician. “Pete is another internationally known Nashville artist whose technique on the acoustic guitar will amaze our audience. He cut his guitar chops playing with the John Denver band, was the National fingerpicking guitar champion, and is a com-

poser of his own music. Pete has a great sense of humor which he mixes into his performances.

Season tickets

Ticket prices for the individual concerts will be ADULTS - $20, and STUDENTS - $5. “While the student tickets prices have remained unchanged to encourage younger ages to attend, the adult tickets have had a modest increase to help cover the rising overhead costs to provide these outstanding concerts. While we recognize that our audience’s budgets are all being stretched, we have delayed this adjustment for a couple of years. But we now need to adjust the compensation of the musi-

cians who drive significant distances to rehearsals and concerts and their travel expenses are becoming an issue. I trust that people will see that our ticket price is still a bargain considering the quality of the performances and guest artists which appear with the Southern Stars”, said Dwight. Season ticket prices remain unchanged and will be $45 for the three concerts. We want to thank our sponsors who have signed on again to support the SSSB in the coming season. They are Season Sponsor - Bed & Biscuit Kennel, and Concert sponsors - Farm Bureau Insurance (Gordon Atchley), Cumberland Eye Care (Dr. Stuart Galloway), and State Farm Insurance (David Bell).

The Sandwich Generation is a term coined to describe individuals â&#x20AC;&#x153;sandwichedâ&#x20AC;? between aging relatives and their own children, balancing financial and emotional responsibility between the two, and saving and planning for their own retirement. The age of an H%&Z#('EB' individual identified 4H,(.$HD"& as such is approxi0B*(IH+,G mately 35 years old, raising young children and providing some measure of care, financial or â&#x20AC;&#x153;emotionalâ&#x20AC;? (physical assistance, companionship, running errands, transporting one to a doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appointment, etc.) to parents or other aging relatives because of a debilitating illness or advancing age. This definition more recently has been expanded to include middle-aged individuals who are providing assistance to an adult child returning to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;nestâ&#x20AC;?while seeking employment and/or returning to school to hone a skill or trade that might enable them to obtain employment and simultaneously caring for a sick spouse and/or parent. Nearly half of Americans 55 and older say they expect to provide some level of support for adult children

and aging relatives, according to Ken Dychtwald, Founder of the SunAmerica Financial Group and a Research Group that tracks the financial and cultural impact of an aging America. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Family assistance has become the new retirement wildcard (Retirement re-set study),â&#x20AC;?Says Dychwald. Rising Medical Costs, an ailing economy, accelerating long term care costs, diminishing returns on investment portfolios, and decreasing home values only have exacerbated a tenuous situation. Additionally, the average worker who takes time off to provide care for an aging parent, sacrifices more than $300,000 in lost wages and benefits over a lifetime, according to Sandra Timmerman, a Gerontologist and director of the MetLife Mature Market Institute. With the loss of employment income, comes a loss of 401K matching funds from the employer. This includes loss of health insurance and other benefits, and the arduous task of looking for work in a sluggish economy should the individual try to return to work. Working with a team of seasoned professionals (Financial Planners, Insurance Agents, Bankers, Estate Planners and Accountants can lessen the load.

5677/.?#N:44?#J<:<-#(:9@ !"#H)B#)&U+'B The heat waves are already dancing on the asphalt as I ride down Highway 70 N toward Monterey. Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest state park, Cummins Falls, is on the other side of Cookeville and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to check it out. It is a 211 acre park on the Blackburn Fork State Scenic River. A waterfall and swimming hole are a fitting destination on a day like today. Rolling down the highway at 60 mph feels like riding in a hair dryer. One of the reasons I enjoy motorcycle riding is that I am exposed to nature at its best or worst, and I have to be able to adapt to it or not ride. So, I adapt, hot or cold, and I ride. Today itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hot as blue blazes. The scent of hot pine trees fills the air as I ride through a stand of them. All around, the fields are parched brown from lack of rain and 100 degree temperatures. The gardens that are still hanging on are stunted and wilted for want of water. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m riding along minding my own business when a kamikaze bug comes at me just over the windshield and smacks the side of my face at the edge of my helmet. I frantically dig him out with one hand while trying to keep the bike upright and between the ditches with the other. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a bee. That could have been disastrous! The zig-zagging road snaking down the side of the mountain just outside of Monterey is one of my favorites. I lean hard into the turns, almost scrapping the floorboards, and twist the throttle to power out of them. I barely get upright before another turn is on me in the opposite direction and I do it again. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exhilarating flying along with the mountain on one side and a shear drop off on the other. One wrong move and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m over the edge. I go through the heart of Cookeville where it seems I get stopped by every traffic light. I feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m being baked in an oven. Finally, I get back to the open road where at least I have a breeze. The BBQ pit beside the road is breathing out hickory smoke and it makes me hungry. I meet a funeral procession, and as the good southern tradition dictates, everyone pulls over out of respect. I turn right onto Highway 56 for 5 miles and then go right again on highway 290 for a mile. A left turn onto Cummins Mills Road for 2 miles takes me to the park entrance. Along this stretch the trees form a leafy canopy over the road giving a brief but welcome respite from the blazing sun. I reach the park entrance and carefully navigate the quarter mile long gravel road leading to the parking lot. As soon as I park the bike I take a long drink of cold water, strap on a couple more bottles and take off down the half mile trail to the falls overlook. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beautiful view of the falls from above with more water than I expected since there hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been any resent rain. Cummins Falls is the 8th largest waterfall in Tennessee measured by volume of water, and has a 75 foot drop from top to bottom. The trail to the bottom of the falls is a little over one mile through the woods away from the falls and then back up the river. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fairly easy path meandering through the hardwood forest and then down a series of switchbacks on

the side of the canyon to the river below. The gravel along the river path is full of fossils of crinoid stems and shells. Taking in the scenery from the bottom of the falls itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to see why it was named one of the top 10 swimming holes in the United States by an article in Travel and Leisure magazine. The water falls onto several large rock shelves before splashing into the cool, clear swimming hole below. In spite of the heat and the hike there are quite a few people here splashing in the water and picnicking. I find a shady spot under an overhanging rock with water dripping off its lip and take a rest and

a long drink. The water looks cool and inviting. I dive in. A little way back down the river trail I find a shortcut that goes straight up the cliff wall. By scrambling and climbing up this I cut out a mile of trail, but it is

extremely strenuous and it wears me out. Back out in the open under the full sun it has to be over 100 degrees. At least on the bike there will be a breeze, although a hot one. Hopefully it will be a little cooler back up on the plateau.

What Customers Say About Tubular Skylights MR. AND MRS. STANLEY URBANIK FAIRFIELD GLADE, TN "Conrad Miller installed a 14 " Sun Tunnel in our kitchen area, we were extremely happy with it, and also Conrad's work. We sold our house and the brightness of the solar tube no doubt helped with this process." HELEN HILL, FAIRFIELD GLADE â&#x20AC;&#x153;My house was built back when they were putting fewer windows in for energy-saving reasons, and my house was very dark. I first had Conrad install tubular skylights in my living room. I liked them so well, I had him come back and put one in my kitchen. The natural light that comes in though these skylights make me feel better and I can see better with them than I can with lights. I would recommend him to everyone. He was courteous, his work was efficient and the price fair.â&#x20AC;?



much brighter than I ever imagined it would be. It really brightens up the kitchen where we had it installed, and we could not be happier with it. We highly recommend Conrad. He did a very nice job and there was absolutely no mess associated with the installation.

I first had Conrad install tubular skylights in my living room. I liked them so well, I had him come back and put one in my kitchen.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tubular Skylights really perk up homes, regardless of when they were built, and in my opinion as a Real Estate agent, makes them much easier to sell. Whenever I show a home that has a tubular skylight, say in a bathroom or dark kitchen. I always ask the people looking the house to â&#x20AC;&#x153;turn off that light please,â&#x20AC;? as we leave the room. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny when they hit the switch and see that it is not a light. They do look like lights.â&#x20AC;?

DONNA BJERK, TELLICO VILLAGE â&#x20AC;&#x153;Conrad installed his Tublular Skylights in my home and I feel lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a new house. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wonderful, not like a dark cave anymore. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a miracle . . .â&#x20AC;?

BOB JACKSON, FAIRFIELD GLADE â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am really enjoying the Tubular Skylight. It is amazing how much light comes in through it. It is


â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had Conrad put one of his skylights in our kitchen, which had always been a bit dark in one area. We have been very pleased and like everyone else, it took us a while to quit trying to turn it off. Recently, when we were remodeling our home, a new wall went in exactly where the skylight was. Conrad was able to use elbow tubes to angle to the new location, which kept him from moving the external flashing on the roof. â&#x20AC;&#x153;

BOB AND DONNA BONCHER, FAIRFIELD GLADE â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 1997, when we moved to our new home, we had Conrad come out an install two, one in the kitchen and one in our laundry room, which was very dark at the time. They really make a huge difference and it made working there so much more enjoyable. Donna calls her skylights, which require no electricity or wiring, her â&#x20AC;&#x153;moonsâ&#x20AC;? because they put out so much light, even at night. They have made quite a difference. They actually help me feel better in the Winter. Natural Light helps!â&#x20AC;?
