100 year old has valid drivers license
Roberta’s grandfather was Bill Phipps, a logger who worked in Dry Buck and Long Valley. Her parents moved to Emmett from Virginia. Roberta was born in Payette and moved to Emmett when she was two years old. She was the middle child of five sisters and a brother who she has outlived by 25 years.
Roberta graduated from Emmett High in 1934. She is proud to say she was the only one of her siblings to graduate from high school. For a time, she moved to Boise and was the secretary to the Idaho Secretary of Education at the Idaho State Capitol. Roberta also was a nurse at the Samaritan Hospital in Nampa from 1954 to ‘57 and was the valedictorian of her nursing class. At 55 years old, she attended the University of Santa Barbara, Calif., for nursery school teaching which she did for around seven years.
Her husband Carl worked at the Boise Payette Mill in Emmett. They had two boys. One, a Navy commander pilot, is buried in Arlington Cemetery. Their other son, Phil Heidner, resides in Emmett.
Carl was in the Army from 1944 to ‘46. When he retired in 1979, the couple moved back to Emmett. Carl passed away in 1987.
Roberta is a current auxiliary member at Valor Health and has been involved for about 10 years. She likes to bake and cook and loves flowers. She has flower beds including an iris bed her husband built for her.
Dec. 18, 2015, Roberta fell and chipped the femer bone in her leg. She is currently doing rehabilitation at River’s Edge.
For her 100th birthday, Mayor Gordon Petri... (Messenger Index)Jan 8, 2016
Hikers, backpackers, tourists love Great Smoky Mountains
Gregory Bald above Cades Cove with 175 species of plants. Berry pickers love balds in the late summer.
My favorite spot is Cades Cove, a six-mile-long valley flanked by the mountains outside Townsend, Tenn. I have driven it. I have hiked it. I have pedaled it. It just has a charm that never grows old.
Visitors follow a one-way, one-lane road on an 11-mile loop at low speeds past 19 historical sites, plus occasional black bears, white-tailed deer and wild turkeys.
There are log cabins, three churches, a grist mill and farm buildings from the 19th century. It is one of the most complete collections of restored buildings in the Southern Appalachians.
The 6,800-acre valley was called Tsayahi or the place of the river otters by the Cherokees. Cades Cove was settled by pioneers about 1820. About 125 families once lived there.
The valley's 2,400 acres of meadows and grasslands make it a prime spot to see black bears. Look for them especially in the late summer and early fall, in the early morning and at dusk. Bear traffic jams are common in Cades Cove. The park has about 1,800 black bears or two per square mile. There are more on the Tennessee side; no one knows why.
Be warned that Cades Cove can get overcrowded in the summer and in the fall when leaves are changing. It is the No. 1 spot in the park for tourists, typically 2 million a year.
For hikers and backpackers, Mount LeConte, the third-highest peak, is a very popular destination.
There are five trails to the top of the 6,593-foot peak. It is topped by LeConte Lodge, a collection of rustic wooden cabins that is accessible only by hiking in and it's booked months in advance. Meals are provided by a concessionaire.
The hikes to the top range from 5 to 8 miles each way on the Alum Cave, Trillium Gap, Bull Head, Boulevard or Rainbow Falls trails.
The Chimney Tops are a popular attraction. The twin spires of quartzite and hard slate rise above the Sugarland Valley. It is a 4-mile round-trip hike.
For wildflowers, Great Smoky Mountains is at its colorful best in April and early May. It's home to 1,600 species of native flowering plants, more than any other national park in the United States. North of the tropics, only China can match the Southern Appalachians for diversity of flowering plants.
Spring wildflowers attract big crowds just like the multitudes of leaf peepers that arrive in the fall.
From May into July, the park is abloom with flowering bushes: rhododendron, mountain laurel and flame azalea.
The federal park will host its Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage April 19-23 to showcase those flowers and the park's biodiversity.
The event includes guided walks, hikes, drives, programs and lectures on wildflowers, nature and cultural history. Online registration begins in February at www.springwildflower pilgrimage.org.
There were 146 indoor and outdoor events last year. A 28-page guide shows what's scheduled. The pilgrimage headquarters is the Mills Conference Center in Gatlinburg.
The fee is $50 for one day, $75 for two or more. For high school and college students with ID, it's $15 for one or more days. Children under 12 are free accompanied by paying adults.
The park was established in 1934. Congress decreed that no admission would be charged. There are three visitor centers, 300 miles of roads and lots of wild country. Newfound Gap Road (U.S. 441) is the main way north-south across the park. It is a pretty drive, but can be slow.
The southern edges of the park are less crowded than the more... (Centre Daily Times)
