Brad Clonch and Quin Tran begin this episode of CNTV by addressing February as American Heart Month. Early detection is critical, and Dr. George Chrysant, a cardiologist at the Chickasaw Nation Medical Center, has a team leading the way in fighting the disease. A state-of-the-art CT scan is able to capture a unique image of the heart and surrounding blood vessels, allowing cardiologists to see calcium and plaque buildup and essentially stop a heart attack before it happens. Next we travel to Tuttle, OK, for a special celebration involving Chickasaw elder Thelma “Chincie” Ross. The community of Tuttle dedicated a new section of City Hall, naming it “The Chincie Ross Meeting Room,” with a plaque hanging near the entrance. Finally, we travel back in history to the time of Cyrus Harris, the first governor of the Chickasaw Nation, who died 126 years ago. He is buried on his land in Mill Creek in Johnston County – his family, including great-great grandson Harris Penner, still owns the land, on which they operate a cattle ranch. You can read more about this story in the past January issue of the Chickasaw Times.
