The Fountain at Smith's Drugs
The Fountain at Smith's Drugs "We remember that it is our privilege to serve our community"

The Rutherford Weekly recently approached Smith's Drug Store with the intention of producing an article about the long life of The Fountain and it's 'secret for success' all these years. Mr. John Higgins, owner and pharmacist, referred us to Mrs. Susan Stewart who is the current manager of The Fountain. We presented Mrs. Stewart with a list of questions and her response was so thorough and compelling that we are publishing it verbatim. Her description of The Fountain and it's history illustrates the culture that, one would conclude, answers any questions about it's longevity.

Are You Okay?

According to the US Census Bureau, over 15% of the nation's total population exceeds 65 years of age. Here in Rutherford County, that number is closer to 21%. In a report USCB published in 2012, it was determined that over 35% of individuals that live alone in the US were 65 and older. That number is expected to increase significantly until 2030 with the 'baby boomers' generation. Health issues like Alzheimer's, Dementia, Diabetes, Heart Disease and Cancer are commonly associated with aging and will be putting our seniors at higher risk, making those living alone more and more vulnerable as the years go by.

"It's been a lot of hard work by a group of volunteers to make this happen and to get an 18 game schedule in our first year, as well as getting into a state association, has been challenging, yet rewarding." said Ryan Elkins, volunteer coach, on the inaugural basketball season. "These aren't top notch basketball players or athletes but they are great kids learning to play the game of basketball while also learning life lessons like teamwork, focus, dedication and perseverance. We are planning on having a girl's softball team this year and next year we plan to add girl's volleyball, boy's soccer, cross country and golf. It's an exciting time at TMA!"

It's the first league title in 17 years when they shared it with East Rutherford in 2001. No question, it's the best Central team since that 2001 season.

The Longest Goodbye
Bill and Nancy Hartley
The Longest Goodbye

"During our many years together we have said countless goodbyes to one another. Every working day we would wish each other a good day, followed with a kiss, before we each went our separate way. Over time, you had many business trips, some were overnight and others as long as two weeks in length, but, as we said goodbye, we knew we parted in love, secure in the knowledge that we would always be reunited after a short time apart. Our love for one another sustained us and we knew those goodbyes were temporary. We would see one another again and be one in mind and heart.

Now, however, you are taking a very long journey, one where I cannot accompany you. You are taking a trip accompanied by the disease of Alzheimer's. Neither of us know how long this trip will last or the exact time frame we are working within."
