Community Activist & Moore County resident Suzanne Coleman has assembled a panel of gov’t and environmental experts to discuss the many facets and concerns about fracking (hydraulic drilling) in N.C. House Minority Leader Joe Hackney, Executive Director of Clean Water for North Carolina, Hope Taylor, www.cwfnc.org and Southern Environmental Law Center attorney, Geoff Gisler, www.SouthernEnvironment.org discuss this issue in depth with host Bill Sahadi, and its many considerations, prior to the N.C. General Assembly reconvening this Monday, Sept. 12th to consider overturning Gov. Beverly Perdue’s veto of Senate Bill 709. (the fracking bill).
Bill Sahadi hosted Virginia Gallagher, owner of Hot Asana Studio and Boutique, John Tampa, Rector of Emmanuel Episcopal Church and yoga instructor, and Julie Tampa, Marketing Coordinator at Penick Village and yoga instructor. In honor of the 5th annual National Yoga month, this was a show about the many facets and benefits that yoga can provide; from what to expect when you walk into a yoga studio for the first time to Patanjali’s Eight-limbed path, it was an incredibly informative program. If you’re never taken a yoga class, you’ll learn logistics like what to wear, what to bring, how to find the right class, and what actually happens in a yoga class. You’ll also hear heart-felt personal stories, and learn how yoga can benefit you – not just physically, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually as well. Hear responses to frequently asked questions: is yoga a religion? Is yoga only for women? Do I have to be a vegetarian to practice yoga? For people from all walks of life, please tune in to learn what you need to know about yoga!

July 9th – PENICK VILLAGE
Phil Martinello and Julie Tampa from Penick Village www.penickvillage.org, join Bill Sahadi of Fore Properties to talk about the Continuing Care Retirement Community industry. (CCRC). Only a 10-minute drive to Pinehurst and within walking distance of downtown Southern Pines, Penick Village is neighbors with the Weymouth Center and Weymouth Woods Sandhills Nature Center. Penick has changed dramatically over the past two years, adding seven stand-alone single family homes with two-car garages from 1800 to 2600-square feet, a new community center which they call the Village House, and a new Woodlands Apartment building with 69 apartments from 700 to almost 1900-square feet. In their 47 year history, they have seen many changes in retirees, and they are working diligently to keep up with those changes. They are becoming a Center for Healthy Aging, promoting fitness and wellness of body, mind, and spirit.
The Village House hosts 4 dining venues: formal dining, informal dining, a private dining room, and a pub complete with a billiard room. Several activity rooms, a library, a movie theatre, a hair salon and the Grand Hall which seats 300 people round out the space.
The research shows that we can age successfully when we exercise our bodies, minds, and spirits, and Penick Village is implementing programs to help residents in each of those areas. Providing residents on-site exercise classes and a membership to FirstHealth Fitness and Wellness Center as well as golf at area courses, bringing in speakers on various topics, coordinating book clubs, and other learning opportunities, they are on the cutting edge of providing choice to residents in Moore County.
