Sixty-five-year-old Dianne Barker told KSAZ-TV this week (http://bit.ly/Ui1V4J ) that she's been banned from doing cartwheels at meetings held by the Maricopa Association of Governments.

An attorney for the association that oversees regional transportation projects said in a letter to Barker last month that she must "immediately cease performing cartwheels."

Agency spokeswoman Kelly Taft tells The Associated Press that Barker's cartwheels are disruptive and a public safety liability.

She should be congratulated for being 60 years old and still able to do cartwheels.

At 65, the only cartwheels I want to think about are the ones they used to put in slot machines.

and if the silly cow fell and broke it's neck it would sue for being allowed to do cartwheels when they knew it could get hurt/killed... no brainer

Is it just me or does it appear that Phoenix is becoming as goofy as Lost Angeles?

They’re probably afraid that she is trying to injure herself and then she will sue them.

65, can still do cartwheels and a full split?
Around these parts, that’s called “advertising”.

I suspect the real reason is they just got sick of watching her do the same trick at every meeting.

They don’t mind the cartwheels so much. It’s that she does them in a loose dress with no underwear.

This is a legitimate concern, and I don't blame the board members for insisting that she stop. If she gets hurt at one of these meetings, there will be a stampede of lawyers willing to represent her in a lawsuit. Okay, it's great that she's able to do a cartwheel at her age, and it may be cute and all that, but why in the world does she need to do them at this type of meeting?
