Arnold Wooden began lifting weights longer ago than many Forsyth County residents have been alive, and he attributes his longevity to the practice. Wooden, 81, got his start more than 60 years ago in Chattanooga, Tennessee, just across the state line from his hometown of Rossville. “I was 15 years old in 1950,” he said.
