Cheap Seat – Adairs, Panacea Keep Expanding Their Vision


May 2011

Zac Adair is terrible at lining up the bumper stickers for the back of his wife’s car. He’ll occasionally stub a toe on a random bag of dog food in the middle of the kitchen floor.

These are the blurry-eyed perils of life when your sightlines are about the size of the opening for a pinhole camera. The legally blind Adair shrugs them off as just another set of hurdles for the day.

Then you get the Wilmington resident talking about Panacea Adventures, the local non-profit he runs to help area special-needs students through wilderness therapy. The ideas are crystal clear, his 20-20 vision for the future as wide as a mountain horizon.
