Government agency bans 65-year-old from doing cartwheels Published: June 6, 2014

Phoenix woman, Dianne “DD” Barker, is an energetic 65-year-old community activist who has found herself in some hot water with a local government agency, according to Yahoo's Odd News.

Barker was recently sent a letter from the attorney representing the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG), which insisted that she "must immediately cease performing cartwheels at MAG meetings."

DD is standing up for, what she feels is, her right of self-expression. The former Ohio State cheerleader told KSAZ Fox 10 that to her, the cartwheel is, ”…something I found out that I could do that is enjoyable, and definitely expresses my passion.”
