Beverly Busher recently received a 7Everyday Hero Award.

Beverly Busher recently received a 7Everyday Hero Award.

collaboration with TLC Meals on Wheels and Channel 7Everyday Hero, Beverly Busher was recognized as a 34-year volunteer recently. The report on Channel 7 News can be seen on Thursday, Aug. 21 at 11 a.m., Friday, Aug. 22 at 4 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 23 at 5 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 24 at 7 a.m.

Born in Winterset, Iowa, Busher transplanted to Littleton (now Centennial) in 1964, and joined the Littleton LaSertoma organization (Ladies in Service to Mankind). As a member she became involved with numerous sponsorship programs. Among the original organizations was Meals on Wheels.  The Littleton LaSertoma group is now “Community Service Club of Littleton.”

A major portion of her life since 1980 has been her selfless dedication to serving the needs of worthy recipients as an unpaid volunteer giving of herself and time. In addition, over the years, Busher has found joy in donating wholesome, organic produce from her picturesque garden. Not only the produce itself, but frequently baked specialties for the TLC Meals on Wheels staff and clients. Dedicated time has also been found for her volunteerism in the Food Bank Ministry area of the South Fellowship Church.

Busher will soon begin another chapter in her life as she departs her community enroute to a new home and live in Union, Mo., with family and friends.

In the many existing years of TLC Meals on Wheels, Busher has devotedly volunteers beyond requirements for the past 34 years! A resounding “adieu” from all those whose lives have been so richly touched.

The origin of Littleton Meals in Wheels (originally “Town of Littleton Cares” Meals on Wheels) began in the mid 1960s with Littleton resident, Virginia Baker. After providing for her family’s needs she reached out to friends of her parents and the elderly, along with a group of volunteers, to provide nourishing meals to those in need.

They quickly outgrew their first location, the Littleton Presbyterian Church and the need arose for a larger facility. So in 1972, the operations moved to the new housing at Bradley House. The program continued to grow with Jan Andrus as the director from 1982 to 2007. Phil Miller later became executive director until he moved away.

As a result of an invitation from Littleton Public Schools, the organization made another move in 2009, and now resides in the Ames Elementary School building at 7300 S. Clermont Drive in Centennial. At the same time the name “TLC Meals on Wheels” became official.

In 2011, the reigns of director and management was entrusted to the capable hands of Diane McClymonds.

Today, TLC Meals on Wheels is a substantial, dependable entity that continues to flourish in the community. About 357 individuals receive nourishing meals in the area from County Line Road on the south to the border of Englewood on the north and C-470on the west to I-25 on the east, Monday through Friday.

No individuals who receive meals pays for the service, however, volunteers receive personal satisfaction and endless thank yous.

Interested persons are invited and encouraged to become a volunteer with the TLC Meals on Wheels, call 303-798-7642 between 8 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. or visit www.TLCMealsonWheels.org.

Glory_GloryUs_NEWClothes to Kids of Denver has an inventory of nearly new and brand new clothes and shoes to fit students enrolled in Denver Public Schools where two out of three kids in the district qualify for free or reduced lunch. That means they come from families living at or below the poverty line. Qualified students attending DPS public academies can also select uniforms here.

Clothes to Kids has a spacious storefront on South Colorado Boulevard where kids can select outfits they need to attend school, spared the stigma of showing up for classes wearing too well worn or ill-fitting items, including shoes.

Items for the store are donated by private and public school parents, many of them living in the Cherry Creek School District or attending private schools such as St. Mary’s Academy, Kent Denver or Regis High School. Other donations come from businesses such as Liberty Mutual that gave Clothes to Kids $25,000 to spend on new socks and shoes. The Optimist Club headed The Undie 500 Drive and the results are apparent in bins stacked with brand new underwear and socks ready for distribution.

“We need everything” kids might need for school, said Development Director Val Lunka. A quick tour of the store, that’s now about 2,500 sq. ft., shows racks upon racks of merchandise arranged, as they would be in a retail store, the racks themselves donated by The Container Store.

Bins and bins of brand new underwear and socks are ready for distribution.

Bins and bins of brand new underwear and socks are ready for distribution.

The nonprofit, which opened in 2008, has grown so rapidly that it just doubled its floor space and thanks to LEI Companies, the whole store has brand new lighting.

Since girls are gentler on their clothes than boys, Clothes to Kids needs more boys’ jeans starting at size 5 and young men’s sizes. In 2013, Clothes to Kids provided wardrobes for more than 4,000 students and they can also use prom attire. Let’s face it parents, your daughters aren’t likely to wear this spring’s prom gown again and boys’ jackets are going to be too small to wear again in 2015.

Sorting and stacking donated items is done by volunteers from local high schools and even seven and eight-year olds who are brought to the store by volunteering parents.

Any chance the students volunteering will spot a student selecting clothes, we asked? Not a chance, as the sorting is done at a separate area away from shoppers.

More than 100 referral agencies work with Clothes to Kids and “there are so many ways to help,” Lunka said. She is a part-time paid staffer, one of only two others there, putting in about 20 hours a week. Katie Jones is the full-time executive director and a University of Denver MSW graduate.

All this information brings to readers’ attention a free Sept. 23 Clothes to Kids Luncheon at the nearby Wellshire Inn, dubbed Reading, Writing and a Wardrobe.

Parkinson’s and depression

The death of actor Robin Williams is touching everyone who knew his name and when he took his own life he left a void in the heart of us all.

Williams, often appearing manic on TV, including the latest and just cancelled, The Crazy Ones, and having a rapid fire speech style, had been in and out of rehab for drug problems but was also battling depression.

That’s the profile most media blamed for his suicide but several days after initial announcements, Williams’ family went public with a message that he had also been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

Colorado Neurological Institute has come out with information on their efforts to tame the neurological effects of Parkinson’s, championed for many years by movie and TV star, Michael J. Fox. For many years he’s been raising money for research into the illness and is credited for bringing the topic out into the open, continuing to work on screen, most recently on the popular show, The Good Wife.

Locally, Channel 9 President Joe Franzgrote succumbed to Parkinson’s after a brave battle, surrounded by friends and family each step of the way.

The following information is from CNI.

“Depression is common in newly diagnosed Parkinson’s patients, as well as in individuals facing most chronic conditions, ranging from epilepsy to arthritis. “We see patients constantly that are losing the ability to communicate with their families,” said Jay Schneiders, Ph.D., a neuropsychologist and physician associate with CNI. “Rigorous diagnostics and state-of-the-art medical treatment of a serious disease or condition is only the beginning.”

“We are hearing all about this right now because of Robin Williams, but this is something we deal with every day,” said Allen Bowling, MD, Ph.D. Bowling is a multiple sclerosis expert and also a physician associate of CNI. He serves as co-chair of CNI’s Education Committee.

“CNI has been offering programs and services to educate and combat depression for years. In fact, we have our biggest conference of the year coming up next month, and anyone who is suffering with depression should attend.”

On Sept. 13, CNI will host its first ever patient/caregiver conference focusing on issues such as depression, fitness, marijuana and the “science of happiness.” This event is designed particularly for those with neurological conditions. However, the conference is open to anyone who suffers from a chronic condition, including depression itself.

“We want people to know we’re here, that we have medical experts, researchers, therapists, counselors, support group leaders, patient mentors and more,” says Tami Lack, Executive Director of CNI. “We know the issues, we have the experts, and we want to help. Depression is so common across the board, not just with Parkinson’s Disease, but with many other conditions, diseases and injuries.”

More information about the upcoming conference, “Thriving with Your Neurological Condition: Science, Sensitivity & Support” can be obtained at www.thecni.org.

Ginger Underwood, a devoted supporter of the Denver Ballet Guild, was killed in an accident on I-70 on Aug. 12, driving to the mountains to see her daughter.

As fellow Guild supporter and Guild President Pam Gatz said, “Ginger was a presence, caring and willing to help others any time. She was also the history of the DBG and she kept us on track. It’s going to be hard to think of the Denver Ballet Guild without her.”

Just about every major Denver Ballet Guild function included Ginger, always facing crowds with a glorious smile and entertaining personality that was obvious merely by viewing photos of her. She chaired the 2010 Le Bal de Ballet

University of Denver student Devin Hogan was in Israel when the conflict between Israeli and Palestinians literally exploded.

DU and Hebrew University give students credit for their exchanges and with international reporting and journalism interests. Hogan was excited to fly to Israel June 24 for what was to be a month to experience first-hand what the region is like.

In late July, as she was learning about the culture of the population, Jewish and Palestinian, she got more of an education than she’d bargained for. Explosions rocked the peaceful Jerusalem air and air sirens in Israel began ripping through the area.

Forty bombs went off that first day and at first,

Olympian begins new life journey 

By Tom Barry

Last week at the end of two months of hard work and rehabilitation from a severed spinal cord, Olympic swimmer Amy Van Dyken-Rouen left Englewood’s Craig Hospital. The Olympic gold-medal winner, who attended Cherry Creek High School, had been injured in June when the ATV she was driving tumbled.

Van Dykne-Rouen had been on the fast track with her motivation and hard work. She completed her intensive rehabilitation process in Craig’s neuro-rehabilitation clinic. But unlike most patients who check out of this world-renown rehabilitation hospital, the socially active media celebrity held a press conference.

“I want to thank everybody who is a part Craig Hospital. It’s been an amazing two months,” said Van Dyken-Rouen, expressing gratitude to all those who had worked with her through an extensive therapy process.

Hospital CEO Mike Fordyce accompanied the Olympic star.

“Today, Amy becomes one of 30,000 Craig graduates. … We are happy to have her as part of our family,” he said.

Van Dyken-Rouen thanked the media for “bringing awareness to the fact that we need more research” into spinal-cord injuries and reflected on her time at Craig.

“It’s been a lot of work. … It’s been a lot of smiles, and a lot of ‘woo-hoos,’ a lot of singing,” she said. “There’s been a lot of tears shed for sure. This is not easy and I don’t want to portray that because I have a smile on my face.”

Van Dyken-Rouen, who noted times that she had initially lashed out during her tough therapy, credited the staff for their exceptional work in changing the way she “goes about the world.”

“Which I think is the biggest thing I learned here. It’s amazing,” she said. “… I’m the wheelie queen. I can get up and down a ramp … in a wheelchair with purple rims. … I’m a thousand times better physically – and as I said before, mentally.”

The former patient will stay in Colorado for a while and plans to sail, see some friends and enjoy some mountain air. She and her husband planned to return in September to their home in Arizona.

Van Dyken-Rouen will also go back to Craig for outpatient work. Additionally, she will be working with another private team of support staff to prepare her to swim again.

“The biggest challenge, of course, is the fact that we don’t have a cure for spinal-cord injury,” she said. “We’ve got a cure or something for everything else. I think that we need to bring more awareness to that. … I would love to see a cure for this sometime in my lifetime – and I think that we will.

“I’ve met some amazing people here,” Van Dyken-Rouen added, as she broke into tears. “They’ve really changed the way I think. … I’m also talking about the patients that are here. I’ve made lifelong friends. They’ve changed the way I think about the world.”

Safeway surrenders

It is like losing an old friend to have your grocery store simply close up and be gone. Safeway at Hampden and Happy Canyon is doing just that come Sept. 1. In the meantime they are not getting any deliveries so what is left is a large garage sale of items they would prefer not to have to move.

This is a business decision and I can normally understand but it is simply the latest in a series of lousy decisions by Safeway regarding this location. As the only alternative to King Soopers and Whole Foods in this area, one wonders why Safeway Corprate ignored the potential here.

We can always adjust to new things but we will
