Don’t forget to grab a few photos outside on the beach afterward.

Aimee Copeland expands outdoor fun to the disabled community

Aimee Copeland, who lost a leg, a foot, and both hands to a bacteria-eating disease, is realizing her dream: that no disabled person should ever be denied the healing power of the outdoors.

“It feels like a prayer I’ve been praying for years has been answered,” she said.

Last week, Copeland announced that a foundation bearing her name, in conjunction with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, is launching a program to allow the mobility-impaired to hit the trails in any of 11 state parks, using all-terrain wheelchairs. Use of the chairs is free to individuals with a documented disability and driver’s license. Riders must complete a safety certification program and be accompanied by a trained “buddy,” Copeland said.

Ben Oxley, who lives in the Stockbridge-McDonough area, tried out one of the chairs during the program’s unveiling at Panola Mountain State Park in Stockbridge.

“It was amazing, “said Oxley, 35, who has cerebral palsy. “I absolutely love being outdoors, and I’ve done everything from hunting to hiking. But it will be great to have something to make it a whole lot easier.”

Copeland came up with the idea for the project after a traumatic zip-lining accident in May 2012, from which she developed necrotizing fasciitis, a flesh-eating bacterial infection. Doctors saved her life, but she was left a quad amputee. Later, as she contemplated moving ahead, Copeland said she lamented that her disability might limit her hiking and the other outdoor activities she loves.

“I started this out of my own inner passion. And to see how many people share my passion, not only people with disabilities, but everybody, is incredible,” Copeland said. “I wouldn’t be the person I am today if I didn’t have the outdoors as a space of healing and growth.”

To get the project off the ground, she created the Aimee Copeland Foundation and raised roughly $200,000 to buy 11 chairs. She also had to iron out the details with DNR, which oversees all state parks, to create the program she calls All-Terrain Georgia.

Copeland conducted a pilot program to work out any kinks. She also bought her track chair and personally rode the trails at the 11 state parks to ensure they would be safe.

On Nov. 4, Georgia Power announced it was buying a chair and donating it to Copeland’s foundation, giving her 12 chairs.

“What’s so impressive about (Copeland) is not so much what happened to her but how she’s recovered, her attitude, and what she’s been able to accomplish,” said Jacob Hawkins, communications manager at Georgia Power.

Despite all the time it took to develop the project, Copeland, 34, is still moving full-speed ahead with her life. Since her injury, she’s obtained multiple degrees and is a licensed clinical social worker, holistic psychotherapist, and paid public speaker. She owns and runs the Grant Park Counseling Group, which has about 10 clinicians.

She married last year, put her home on the market last week, and is moving from the Atlanta area to Asheville, North Carolina, where she has opened the Asheville Center for Inner Healing. Copeland said that her husband, Stephen Mercier, is going back to school so he can one day join her in her therapy work.

"A huge part of me is so grateful for the way my life has worked out. I would have never had this platform, this soapbox," she said. "But I’m still working through parts of it. I think grief is an ongoing process, and having a disability is not easy. I have my dark nights of the soul, my difficult moments, and I want other people with disabilities to know that’s normal."

Smelling like a sewer system may be a dog's idea of heaven on earth, but the dog's owners are usually less than enthusiastic about the smell

Dog owners who live near a forest, close to a river, or on a farm will be quick to tell you that there is something about stinky, decaying items that appeals to dogs! It doesn't seem to matter if it is black swamp water, dead fish, or a pile of slimy manure…if it stinks and can be rolled in, the dog is happy. While smelling like a walking, barking sewer system may be a dog's idea of heaven on earth, the dog’s owners are normally less than enthusiastic. The odor emitting from their pet means having to take time out of their busy day to either take their pet to the pet groomer and have it bathed, or bathe the dog themselves. Even then, there is no way they can be sure the offensive odor will wash out of the dog's coat.

Why Do Dogs Like Camouflaging Their Natural Scent?Dog experts believe that dogs roll in things like dead fish, road kill, and manure in an attempt to disguise themselves. What nobody knows is why they feel the need to camouflage their scent? It could be a throwback to the days when they hunted their dinner - if the prey couldn't smell them, they stood a better chance of capturing something to eat.

Another reason dogs might feel the need to hide their scent is for protection. They might be trying to hide from potential predators or other packs of once feral dogs. Maybe stinking like a landfill makes it easier to be accepted into another pack. On the other hand, it's possible dogs roll in the stinkiest object they can find just because it feels good. Nobody really knows for sure why dogs feel the need to smell!

Quickest Method To Remove Stinky Dog OdorsThe quickest, most efficient way to remove odor from your dog's coat is to wash your dog. Try to use a shampoo specifically designed for dogs. Human shampoos can strip the dog's coat of its natural oils, leaving the skin unprotected and open to rashes and infections. Dog shampoos are made to clean the dog's coat, without stripping it of natural oils. If the dog's stink is especially strong, like the scent of a skunk, bathing the dog in tomato juice is one of the quickest ways to remove the smell.

Keep Dog’s Coat ShortIf you have a dog who consistently rolls in stinky, smelly items, you may want to consider taking him to a professional pet groomer and having his coat clipped. The shorter coat will be more comfortable for the dog during the hot summer months and while the shorter hair won't prevent your dog from rolling in the smelly items, the shorter coat will be easier for you to wash, and will dry faster.

Health Issues Causing Foul Dog OdorsIf you have bathed your dog and still notice a strong odor whenever he is in your presence, the source of the smell might not be the dog's coat, but a more serious health problem. When they have dental issues they may have smelly breath so foul that you can smell it throughout your entire house. Strong breath odor can also indicate more serious diseases such as kidney failure and diabetes. Dog's are also prone to having anal sacs that become impacted and infected, and therefore extremely stinky. If washing your dog does not seem to take care of the odor, you will want to take your dog to your veterinarian and have the stinky problem officially diagnosed so that treatments can begin.

THE FLATS – Great basketball won’t be the only attraction for Georgia Tech fans who attend early home games for the Yellow Jackets’ 2022-23 season at McCamish Pavilion.

Beginning with a shirsey giveaway and a shooting contest to win $10,000 when Tech opens the season Monday night against Clayton State (7:30 p.m.), many giveaways and on-court promotions have been planned for all six non-conference home games in November and December.

Here are the scheduled promotions:

Head coach Josh Pastner welcomes back eight letterwinners from last year’s unit, including senior point guard Kyle Sturdivant (Norcross, Ga.) and senior center Rodney Howard (Ypsilanti, Mich.) who are Tech’s top two returning scorers. The Jackets’ core includes a trio of rising sophomores in Dallan “Deebo” Coleman (Memphis, Tenn.), Miles Kelly (Stone Mountain, Ga.) and Jalon Moore (Birmingham, Ala.), as well as junior point guard Deivon Smith (Loganville, Ga.). The Jackets also have added a pair of promising transfers in guard Lance Terry (College Park, Ga.) from Gardner-Webb and forward Ja’von Franklin (Little Rock, Ark.) from South Alabama, both of whom earned all-conference recognition last season.

Competitive Drive Initiative

In a unified endeavor, Georgia Tech, the Georgia Tech Foundation, Georgia Tech athletics and the Alexander-Tharpe Fund have come together to accelerate funding for student-athlete scholarships with the launch of the Competitive Drive Initiative. The initiative kicks off with the Accelerate GT Match Program, where any new gift to the A-T Fund’s Athletic Scholarship Fund made through Dec. 31 will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Georgia Tech Foundation, up to $2.5 million. Should Accelerate GT reach its $2.5 million fundraising goal, the matching gift would result in a $5 million impact for Georgia Tech athletics.
