Neighbors Together Against Cancer Cancer, been there, done this

CROSSVILLE — Naiad Kuhlman, a Fairfield Glade resident, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002. In 2010, her daughter Allison Watkinson nominated her for a Picture of Health award through Prevention Magazine. The following excerpts and additions to that letter should inspire and motivate us one and all:       

“My 80 year old mother, Naiad Kuhlman, is the Picture of Health. She is in better shape now than at any time in her adult life. A year after her mastectomy, she began volunteering for Reach for Recovery; today she trains new volunteers and includes nutrition and exercise specialists in her training curriculum. She has been honorary chair for Relay for Life.” She was also named community volunteer of the mid-south ACS division for the year 2005-'06."

"At 79-years-old, she became a certified personal trainer. She works at the (CMC) health center four mornings a week. As a personal trainer, she works individually with folks whose health issues impair their quality of life. She also teaches Rocking to the Oldies, a class that includes aerobics, weights and the "big ball." The class for seniors has grown from six to 26 participants. [Kuhlman] met her goal of running a mile with her children on her 80th birthday. Her children, friends and neighbors joined her for the Birthday Run Breakfast. During golf season, [Kuhlman] plays six times a month on two teams. She runs at least twice per week, volunteers at the local hospital and is an usher at the Playhouse. What does the future hold? [Kuhlman] is training for a 5K run on September 11 and planning a trip that will include a short run on the Great Wall of China."

That letter was written in 2010. In 2011, Kuhlman won three gold medals in the Cumberland County Senior Olympics and four gold medals in the Tennessee Senior Olympics. In 2012, she matched her Cumberland County medal total but added one more to her Tennessee Senior Olympic medals total. She has qualified in five events for the 2013 National Senior Olympic Games to be held in Cleveland, Ohio. The moral of this story so aptly written by her daughter in concluding her letter was: “You are never too old to start becoming a Picture of Health!”

  • Tracking tracks.jpg Tracking down old tracks

    It is perceived that the lumber business was profitable and extensive throughout the entire area of the current Glade and along much of the path of the described rail from the Glade all the way to Dorton. While our previous reports detailed much about the track of the Cumberland Northern, most of the reported discovery was north of Peavine and east of the four-way stop near the new Wyndham reception center (and east toward Antioch).

  • Friends group plans Elbe River cruise

    Our “Friends Traveling Together” group at Fairfield Glade was eagerly anticipating a Russia river cruise with a pre-trip to Ukraine this summer. World events, as it sometimes happens, caused us to rethink those plans. Undeterred, however, we will be embarking instead on an Elbe River cruise from Berlin, Germany to Prague on Aug. 10-22.

  • Abacus Column: Rooting for the prodigal daughter's success

    Around June of 2006, I wrote an article for the Chronicle and Glade Sun entitled, “Tonya Hinch: A Prodigal Daughter Returns to Crossville." I had been requested to meet and write about Tonya by a friend and local writer. “Why me,” I asked; “You are a good writer.” “Maybe so,” he replied; “but I don’t speak business, you do.”

  • Enjoying Nature.jpg Enjoying Nature: Keeping up with the bluebirds

    There may not be a prettier bird than our Eastern Bluebird, Sialia sialis, (pronounced cee-AL-ee-a cee-AL-iss). Bluebirds stay here in Tennessee all year, and, in the winter, you will often see groups of five or six at a time coming to your suet or mealworm feeder. But this time of year, you'll generally only see two at a time, because once a pair establishes a territory, they will chase off all potential rivals.
