A thankful story,
a LifeLine pilot story
It was early morning Jan.
19, 1999. A large winter storm shrouded the Midwest in snow and ice.
Truck driver Bob Frank was about to start his daily route. He walked
across the frozen parking lot. In that split second between one step
and the next, his feet flew out from under him and life changed
forever. Stunned, he picked himself up, noting the pain in his
spine, but shrugged it off, determined to get his dayís work done.
[Click here to
view more photos]
Focused on getting through the snowy
day, he pushed aside the nagging, increasing pain and finished his
route. It was the last day he worked as a truck driver.
Step back 42 years. Paul Schmutzler,
only 14 then, began learning to fly in his fatherís plane and
quickly got his pilotís certificate. He went to college, got a job,
continued to fly and gained some of the extra ratings, including
instrument and multi-engine ratings. He became a
helicopter-certified flight instructor and got his commercial
Schmutzler currently lives in Palatine
and is retired from Exxon Mobile Corporation. Heís accumulated about
3,000 hours of flight time logged in 42 years of experience.
Next meet Alan Bernard. He is president
of a manufacturing company, Mid Park, Inc., located in Kentucky.
Bernard, like Schmutzler, is a pilot. Heís been flying 14 years and
has approximately 1,500 hours logged flight time.
Also meet Bill LaFever. Heís from
Atlanta, Ga. LaFever assists with the CNN website, integrating new
technologies for a living. He flies in his off time too. He has 600
hours in 10 years.
Schmutzler, Bernard and LaFever all
hold a love and expertise in flying. All three also carry the title
of humanitarian. A humanitarian, according to Websterís, is "a
person devoted to promoting the welfare of humanity, especially
through the elimination of pain and suffering." All three men fly
mercy missions aiding in the relief of human suffering. Bob Frank
would be meeting these three men in a few years.
Following his accident, Frank was
referred from one doctor to the next before the third, a
neurosurgeon in Bloomington, performed disk surgery. However, the
He was bounced doctor-to-doctor twice
more, until the fifth doctor identified he now had a hyper-mobile
sacroiliac joint. He recommended Frank see a specialist in Atlanta,
There, in October of 2000, Frank had a
second surgery. The doctors took bone from his hip and placed screws
in the left side of the joint. The intent was to cause bone to fuse
at the injury site. The surgery was moderately successful. Another
trip to Atlanta, in May of 2002, determined that the right side of
his backbone would also need the same treatment in order to fully
stabilize the joint.
It had been already been over three
years since Frank had had good health and a good job. He was still
suffering with pain and needing additional surgery. The family was
stressed. Then, as they were considering the third surgery, Frankís
wife, Cheryl, had her job cut to part-time and lost benefits as
well. These were hard times for the Frank family.
Already financially strapped, they
decided that it didnít matter. He needed that surgery. But he and
Cheryl realized that the return drive from Atlanta following the
surgery would be too hard and too long to drive. So Bob would go
alone and fly both ways. Once surgery was scheduled, they would
search for the best air prices for the trip they couldnít afford.
A friend put him in touch with LifeLine
Pilots, which coordinates flights for people with medical or other
life urgencies and financial need. It is a not-for-profit agency
with approximately 500 pilots covering the Midwest. Their home base
is at the Byerly Terminal at the Greater Peoria Regional Airport.
The agency serves 15 states in the Midwest: Arkansas, Illinois,
Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri,
Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Tennessee and Wisconsin.
[Photos provided by Bob Frank]

The pilots are highly experienced, and
most have their flight instrument rating. So they are able to fly in
almost any weather conditions. When they commit to a flight, the
saying is they "accept missions."
Schmutzler, Bernard and LaFever are
representative of the volunteer pilots who fly with various agencies
all over the United States. As Schmutzler said, "I want my flying
time to count for something."
Pilots not only donate their time but
also provide the airplanes, which they either own or lease. Their
airplanes must seat four to six people. The pilots also cover the
costs of fuel and any other expenditures incurred during a trip.
Bernard said he thinks that all pilots
are doing it for just about the same reasons. He said, "Itís a way
to do two good things at the same time. One is to do what you enjoy
doing, which is flying. The other is to help somebody out."
"When you fly these missions, most of
the time you get to go to places you havenít gone before," he said.
"You get to meet new people. Some of the missions stick with you a
lot more than others. The kids stick with you more. People have a
crisis in their life, and you always have some sympathy for them. I
enjoy being around them."
Speaking of his passengers, Bernard
said, "Theyíve always been good people, very appreciative. A lot of
them canít believe that the pilots would do this for nothing."
Summarizing, he said, "Itís just a good
thing. We get to fly our planes, we get to help people out, we get
to go places weíve never been, we get to meet people weíve never
met. I think everybody wins."
Frank needed to go to Atlanta, which is
outside LifeLineís southern boundary. LifeLine mission coordinators
made special arrangements with a sister agency, Angel Flights, that
serves the South.
In a matter of a few days, after
filling out all the necessary paperwork, Frank was approved and
waiting for pilots who could fill his itinerary.
Schmutzler, Bernard and LaFever
accepted the mission to assist Frank for his surgery. They agreed to
fly him from Decatur to DeKalb Peachtree Airport in Atlanta, Ga., on
Sept. 17 and return him from Atlanta to Decatur on Sept. 21.

destination in Georgia. On Sept. 21 he picked Frank up at
Elizabethtown and returned him to Decatur. They flew in Bernardís
twin propeller Beachcraft Baron.

21. They flew in his Mooney.
[to top of second column in this article]
Schmutzler and Bernard are two of
almost 500 pilots flying the Midwest LifeLine missions. LaFever
flies missions for Angel Flight, Inc., which is based in Tulsa,
pilot Paul Schmutzler and Bob Frank before takeoff from Decatur
Schmutzler has flown 14 missions and
says he made his decision to do this because he "wanted to do some
worthwhile flying." He said, "I can devote time [to people] and
enjoy my airplane."
He went on praising the people he has
flown. "All the people have good attitudes," he said, and they are
dealing with challenging situations. "They are inspirational." He
gets a lot out of being around them.
Bernard was LifeLineís 2001 Pilot of
the Year. Mission coordinator Carol Street explained some of the
reason he was given that honor: "When youíre in a jam, heíll help
He once accepted a mission to transport
a 3-month-old baby with congestive heart failure who was not
expected to live much longer. Concern set in while considering the
seriousness of the situation. He called the office and asked, "What
do I do if the child dies in flight?" Before the coordinator could
answer, he said, "Never mind, Iíll handle it," and flew the mission.
Thatís the kind of man he is, Street
said. "If ever there was a definition of a LifeLine pilot, it would
be Allen Bernard." He has flown 25 to 30 missions.
The pilots are alerted to needs through
the office. The Peoria LifeLine has three professional office staff
and an executive director who handle administrative processes.
Street and Mary Heath act as "mission coordinators." Julie Puckett
is office manager. Bob Hultgren started his first day on the job as
executive director on Oct.1.
The staff members process information
and requests and act as liaisons between pilots and those who need
flight arrangements. Long flights such as Frankís often require
multiple pilot and plane coordination and may incorporate other
When a request is approved, flight
coordinators send out e-mails or in urgent situations make phone
calls to area-specific pilots. As pilots respond, a flight itinerary
is set up and then given to the beneficiary. Because of the urgent
and frequently fluctuating medical situations, itineraries often
have to be changed at the last minute.
Frank said the people in the office
were friendly and helpful. He was so impressed with them that he
went there before his surgery just to meet them and take pictures.
Frank is back home recovering now. His
wife Cheryl says, "Heís pretty sore, but heís getting along well."
Heís in physical therapy, and his prognosis for a full recovery is
good this time.
On Thursday when their kids come to
visit, bringing the grandchildren too, they will truly be
celebrating Thanksgiving this year.
Frank is glad he got to make this trip
with LifeLine, "I wish Iíd have known about them for the other trips
I had to make. It made it so much easier." This relieved some of the
financial burden. He smiled, "And everyone was so friendly!"

Baron in Decatur at trip's close]
He said the pilots were wonderful and
the flying was smooth. "It was lots better than if I had ridden in a
car. If it werenít for [the fact] that I was on the way for surgery
going there and the pain having just had surgery coming back, I
would love to have taken this trip anytime. It was great."

All over the U.S.:
Remember last Thursday? It
got darker rather than lighter as the day wore on. Our first real
threat of winter teased as temperatures dropped, the wind picked up
and snow mixed with rain fell over the Lincoln area.
On the outer reaches of the county, in
Atlanta, three men defied a rational response to seek the light and
warmth of shelter. They faced the inhospitable elements because they
had a job that needed doing that day.
It was proof that members of the Logan
County Habitat for Humanity wonít shirk a commitment where there is
a real need. The crew that day was composed of George Dahmm, Joe
Funk and Joe Runyon. They had been called to the task by Rick
Campbell, weatherization and energy assistance director for CIEDC,
Central Economic Development Corp., also known as Community Action.
Campbell received a call on Monday,
Nov. 18, from Korin Crosetto. Crosetto said that her father just had
his leg amputated and he would be coming home from the hospital at
the end of the week. They needed a ramp built to get him in and out
of the house, and they couldnít afford one.
Campbell did some checking, and
Crosetto qualified for assistance. Campbell said that it was with
the permission and enthusiasm of Jane Poertner, executive director
of CIEDC, that they contacted the Logan County Habitat for Humanity
and Mitchell-Newhouse Lumber Company. The Habitat crew was asked to
donate the labor and Mitchell-Newhouse to donate the materials. They
both agreed, and the family was contacted Tuesday morning that the
ramp would be built for them.
And so that is how it came to be that
on that nasty day Dahmm, Funk and Runyon drug out their tools and in
short order constructed a wheelchair ramp.
Dahmm said, "We didnít talk a lot that
day. We just worked." In four soggy hours they were done. "We got
finished before the rain quit," he said.
When LDN contacted Crosetto the next
day to see how things were going, she said her dad was doing all
right. "Heís eating some soup right now," she added.
"The guys that came out from Habitat
were really nice guys," she said. "They were fast workers and
[to top of second column in this article]
The family is very thankful for the
assistance CIEDC offered and appreciates all the efforts of those
involved in completing this task for them in such a speedy manner.
Campbell says: "We at Community Action
know that that is what itís all about, people helping people. If we
can assist anyone in any way, we will, and if we canít assist them
firsthand, we can probably find the resources that can help."
The citizens of Logan County are very
fortunate to live in an abundant and generous place. As Campbell
points out, "It is very good to know that when a situation like this
comes up, people in our community step up to the plate and take care
of things. We at Community Action hope to see this sort of thing
He added, "If everyone would get
involved and help each other, it would be a much better world."
This is the second time in the past
year CIEDC has coordinated efforts to accomplish the building of
handicap ramps. The last one was in Lincoln for a young
wheelchair-bound child. It was also built by the Habitat team with
materials supplied by Mitchell-Newhouse.
Dahmm says, "We wonít do this for just
anybody. We do it for special people."
The Logan County Habitat will be
celebrating 10 years as an affiliate in 2003. They are near paying
off past house building expenses and will soon begin a new home for
another family. The property has already been secured. Funds are
continually being raised for new homes.
All funds given to the Logan County
chapter stay in Logan County for homes to be built here. The next
fund-raiser will be a dinner dance ball on Feb. 1 at the Knights of
Columbus. Watch LDN for further details.
