Although they both live in Madison County and have been treated at Richmond's Pattie A. Clay Regional Medical Center, the women didn't know each other until connecting through an Interact support group for emphysema patients called EFFORTS. The two met for lunch one day in 1998 and have been friends ever since. Costilow, also a long-time smoker, was diagnosed with emphysema when she was 40. She describes the disease, which restricts the lungs' air sacs mak- ing breathing difficult, as "pure hell. It's like, if you would close off your nose and maybe put a cocktail straw in your mouth and try to breathe through that cock- tail straw and at the same time run a race. Imagine how short of breath you would get." Costilow's lung capacity dropped to 10-percent leaving her unable dress herself, shower or brush her teeth and wash her face without sitting down to rest. She received a lung transplant at Nashville's Vanderbilt University in 1999. In spite of having to take numerous medications and liv- ing in constant fear her body could still reject the transplanted lung, Costilow says the proce- dure was worth the pain. "It has given me back my life," she says. "It has given me three-and- a-half wonderful years, and hopefully a lot more." Meanwhile, Oglethorpe found more of her normal daily activities limited by her decreas- ing lung capacity. Climbing stairs or running a vacuum became difficult, and later near- ly impossible. After more than a decade with emphysema, Oglethorpe decided to pursue a transplant. A vital part of that process was enlisting the sup- port of her friend Jan Costilow. "This is something I wanted to do for her," Costiiow says. "Besides her being a very dear friend, I'!1 do it because I have received so much from society myself. I feel you can't just keep taking and taking and not give anything back." Costilow discussed the risks with Oglethorpe including sta- tistics that show a 10-percent death rate from the surgery alone. Plus, 90-percent of patients reject the transplanted lung within the first three months. But Costilow also described the joy of simply being able to breathe again. Earlier this spring, Costilow accompanied Oglethorpe to i Send your news or correspondence to Bath County News-Outlook P.O.

There doctors gave Oglethorpe a series of tests to see if she would qualify for a lung trans- plant. "You're torn," Oglethorpe explains. "You want to breathe better but then there's the fear [of the operation]." The exhausting week includ- ed drawing a dozen tubes of blood, a pulmonary function test, a bone density test, a chest x-ray and CT scan, a psycholog- ical screening, and heart catheterization..The process became more stressful when doctors told Oglethorpe they discovered a spot on her lung that could be cancerous. After returning to Richmond, Oglethorpe received good news and bad: the spot on her lung was not cancer. However, she did not qualify for a lung trans- plant because the tests revealed the presence of certain antibod- ies in her blood that would make a donor match next to impossi- ble. Oglethorpe is trying to remain upbeat saying not every- one does as well as her friend Jan Costilow after a transplant. "I could die on the operating table," Oglethorpe says. "I'd rather live out the life I have now." She has quit smoking and is undergoing exercise therapy , at the pulmonary rehabilitation clinic at Pattie A. Clay hospital. The two friends remain active in spreading the word about emphysema and the risks of tobacco use. "Why is the most deadly drug of all legal," Costilow wonders? "I would encourage anyone who smokes to quit smoking," Oglethorpe adds. "I realize ciga- rettes are addictive, and people say, 'Oh, I can't quit.' Let me tell you, once you get emphysema as bad as I have emphysema you will quit smoking one way or the other."

Workshops emphasize agriculture education Future Kentucky teachers are learning how to bring agricul- ture and the environment into the classroom as teaching tools. The Kentucky Department of Agriculture has taught more than 500 college students throughout the state who are preparing for careers as elemen- tary and secondary teachers. "The Department is demon- strafing that agriculture and the environment can be integrated into all curriculums as real-life instructional tools," said Agriculture Commissioner Billy Ray Smith, "Our food, clothing, housing, and many other things we use every day have direct connections to agriculture. They also are connected closely to the environment since those who produce our food were the first stewards of the land."

But since the ] Kentucky Education Reform Act ] mandates assessment testing, teachers "have less lime to attend the many professional development programs avail- able. That's when we thought of training student teachers as well," she said. KDA conducted its first workshop for student teachers in January 2002 at Murray State University. KDA has trained a total of 516 student teachers at Murray State, the University of Louisville, Western Kentucky University, Eastern Kentucky University and Campbellsville University, The next program will be held at Murray State on Aug. 12. "We are training the student teachers to bring agriculture into their teaching methods before they enter the schools," Boone said. "This has also allowed us to provide them with teaching materials that have agriculture and the environment as their foundation. We believe this is a long-term investment in the careers of these future teachers." Materials revolve around the Food, Land & People program, which deals with the complexity and interdependence of natural resources and people.
