Motorists traveling on Old Auburn Road from North Clinton St. to Cook Road have seen quite a few delays the past few months. Since May, crews from the City of Fort Wayne have been working to widen the portion of the road, which is traveled by thousands each day. “Mainly, this project was needed because of the volume of traffic to use this area,� Bruce said. An estimated 7,000 vehicles use the stretch of Cook Road each day, said Rich Romary, the project’s manager. An additional 14,000 travel on Old Auburn Road and the intersection at North Clinton Street sees 24,000 drivers daily. The project to transform Old Auburn Road to

four lanes from North Clinton to just north of Cook Road is proceeding according to plans, according to Denny Bruce, assistant traffic engineer with the City of Fort Wayne Traffic and Engineering Department. Recently, crews finished constructing and paving one of the two new lanes to be added. The new lane is east of the original roadway and currently serves as the single northbound lane. Bruce said workers now will begin repaving the middle two lanes while gradually working westward. The closing of Cook Road at the Old Auburn Road intersection, which went into effect this week, will facilitate the repaving of the southbound lane and the addition of turn lanes. Guardrail work and




asphalt widening also will take place. A sidewalk is expected to be included, as well. Estimates have Cook Road closed for up to six weeks, Bruce said. Bruce said the widening project also will address erosion to the bridge over Cook Road. “For a long time, we

On Sept. 14, Allison Stier was diagnosed with late-stage bilateral inflammatory breast cancer. The disease is rare, undetectable by annual mammograms, and like other cancers comes with a hefty price tag for treatment. But the 39-year-old wife and mother does not have health insurance. “She is a selfless and loving person who has given so much to so many people through the years that it is now time for her to be lifted up ‌ in prayer, love, and financial support,â€? said friend Barb Hall. Since her diagnosis in September, Hall said, Stier has already undergone three chemotherapy treatments with Dr. Shalini Chitneni at Fort Wayne Medical Oncology and Hematology, and may begin radiation treatments next week. “Due to the spread of the disease, they decided not to do the double mastectomy — that was the original plan,â€? Hall said. Stier, who originally is from Fort Wayne, graduated from North Side High School and later from Four Winds Academy of Hair Design. Along with

The doors to the new Ronald McDonald House at the Parkview Regional Medical Center will open Nov. 27 with a ribboncutting ceremony. The new, 9,000-squarefoot facility will offer all the comforts of home to families who have a child in the hospital, said Teresa White, communications and resource manager at Ronald McDonald House. “We really want people to come in here and feel

like its a respite from the hospital just outside our doors, an opportunity to recharge and take a break and a breath while being close enough to be back in a moment’s notice.� White said. “When you step through our doors, we don’t look like a hospital.� The house, which is three times the size of the previous location inside the Randallia campus, features bamboo floors, comfortable couches and 11 large private guest rooms with semi-private bathrooms.

There also is a large gathering room where families can watch TV, talk, play games or just relax. An expanded kitchen and dining room area stocked with necessities for families and a computer area and laundry facility put the finishing touches on the common spaces. Guests, White said, range from those who stop by for the day to some who have stayed six months. White estimates the average -iiĂŠRONALD, ÂŤ>}iĂŠ{

number of annual guests tops 1,000. She expects that number to grow in the future. The ribbon-cutting ceremony will be the culmination of more than two years of work. White said a feasibility study had to be conducted before the board of trustees and the global charity approved the expansion. Finally, a capital campaign kicked off in September of 2011 with a goal of raising $2 million. In addition to generous donors such as Parkview and McDonald’s, the community effort to raise the funds was successful and construction kicked off in April. “We’ve had tremendous support from donors, businesses and individuals,� White said. “We have found this to be a very generous community — our program is one of those things that people feel strongly about. We all can sympathize with a parent of a sick or injured child.�

In addition to funding — 40 percent of the house’s annual budget is covered by coins dropped into canisters stationed at the area’s more than 40 McDonald’s restaurants — the community generously gives its time to volunteer at Ronald McDonald House. White said a part-time volunteer coordinator schedules more than 136 volunteers who work in three-hour shifts to tasks such as answering phones, checking guests in, keeping the house tidy and more. “We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without all of our wonderful volunteers,� White said. An open-house event is planned for Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on Nov. 18 from noon to 4 p.m. Tours will be given and staff will be on hand to answer questions about the facility.

NIPSCO supplies natural gas to customers in most of northeast Indiana. Over the course of the five-month winter heating season — Nov. 1 to March 31 — NIPSCO said its average residential

customer would use a total of 624 therms and could expect to pay approximately $438. That compares to $440 for a customer using the same amount of gas last winter. “Market prices for natural gas continue to hold at historically low levels, thanks in large part to plentiful domestic resources,� said NIPSCO’s CEO Jim Stanley. “This is

great for our customers, especially as we head into the winter heating season, when utility bills typically reach their highest point of the year.� Although winter bills are projected to be flat, NIPSCO said it expects usage to be slightly higher. Last winter’s usage was lower than normal due to unseasonably warm temperatures.

— on average, two-thirds of an overall bill. NIPSCO said it has no mark-up and makes no profit on the cost of natural gas billed to its customers. Before billing, natural gas costs must be reviewed by the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission. NIPSCO said that for the 11th consecutive month, it has the lowest residential gas bills in

NIPSCO makes its bill projections based on weather predictions, market forecasts, supply trends and storage opportunities. Assuming normal winter temperatures, this year’s projections indicate that bills will be among the lowest in a decade, the company said. The cost of natural gas represents the largest portion of customer bills

Indiana, according tol comparisons released in October by the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission. NIPSCO said gas bills vary by customer depending on a home’s age and size, the number of people in a household, the number and age of gas appliances, thermostat settings and insulation levels.

Gliot said. “We do that through outdoor programs and camping. But camping isn’t why we exist, it’s what we do to further those goals.â€? While Boy Scouts fundraising may evoke thoughts of caramel popcorn, the inaugural seafood boil events in

2011 were very successful, Gliot said. It netted the organization approximately $15,000, which it uses to plug its $1.7-million operating budget. “(The seafood boil) is just one more avenue to raise more funds for the operating budget for things like summer camp support and recruitment,� Gliot said. Camp operation costs nearly $350,000 each year and recruitment is equally important, Gliot said. AWAC recruits 3,5004,000 new scouts each

year. Event organizers hope to raise $22,000 this year while boosting attendance from 70 last year to 120 this year. Tickets for the seafood boil are $250 per couple or $1,000 per table.

As Halloween approaches, we are interested in all things spooky. Since art is everywhere, I thought a discussion of the art found in one of the spookiest of locales might prove of interest — graveyard art. Carved grave markers and sculpted headstones that dot cemeteriesí landscapes have a rich history. The first grave markers were actually boulders.

These great stones were thought to be a good solution to keep the dead from rising out of their graves. It was thought that if heavy rocks were placed on the grave sites of the deceased, they would not be able to climb out from underneath them. These early grave markers were not highly decorative, but that tradition changed by the onset of the 16th Century.

Early gravemarkers

as a reminder of the person buried there. Many American artisans responsible for gravestone carving were masons or stoneworkers. Grave stones were carved with frightful motifs like angels of death and winged skeletons. Some of the most popular imagery found on grave stones relates to death and the journey from this world to the otherworld. From circa 1700 to 1780, some of the popular images

The living felt the need to mark graves with stones

Every year children anxiously count down the days until they are able to put on their costumes and head out into the neighborhood in search of candy. Although Halloween is meant to be a fun occasion for the young and the old alike, it can also be unsafe. Costumes may impair a child’s vision and motor function. The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says that studies indicate Halloween is in the top three among holidays that produce the most visits to hospital emergency rooms. Finger and hand injuries account for 17.6 percent of injuries, and children ages 10 to 14 sustain the greatest proportion of Halloween injuries. Trips and falls also account for a high number of injuries. There are also a good deal of children who become injured before Halloween arrives, many of whom sustain lacerations when carving pumpkins. To make Halloween a safe holiday, children and adults can heed these suggestions. • Wear comfortable, sturdy shoes. Although kids might want to wear shoes that match the costume, shoes that fit well and are comfortable are a safer bet. This will help prevent tripping and falling over cumbersome shoes. It also reduces the risk of developing blisters and discomfort when walking from home to

home. • Go trick-or-treating in groups. Children should not be allowed to go out in search of candy alone. Going in a group means that someone can get help if need be. Also, there is safety in numbers. Predators won’t view a child as an easy target if he or she is with fellow trick-ortreaters. • Be visible. Since daylight saving time begins shortly after Halloween, there are fewer hours of daylight for trick-ortreating. When halloween falls on a weekday, children have to wait until after school to venture out, and it can quickly become dark. Therefore, make sure that children are equipped with flashlights and put reflective tape on their costumes so they will be more visible to fellow pedestrians and motorists. • Stick to the sidewalks. Children should stay on sidewalks and cross the street only at established crosswalks. • Do not enter homes. Unless a child is with an adult and the home is owned by a trusted friend, kids should not enter homes for treats. • Avoid candles and jack-o-lanterns. A costume can easily catch on fire, so it is best to steer clear of candles, luminaries and lit pumpkins. • Bring water. Costumes can become hot and uncomfortable, especially when worn for long periods of time. Be sure children have water to rehydrate themselves. • Accessorize safely. Select flexible swords

inspect candy wrappers to determine if there has been any tampering. Also, avoid homemade treats from homes unless you know the people who prepared the items.

GRAVE vĂ€ÂœÂ“ĂŠÂŤ>}iĂŠĂŠÂŁĂ“ on gravestones were skull and crossbones. The symbolism apropos for a grave marker was that the skull of the deceased would have wings that would fly his or her soul to heaven. Some of the more common motifs found on gravestones include hourglasses, a symbol of the passage of time, and youthful winged figures reserved for those who died young. In the early 1800s,

latter part of the 1800s when more people visited graveyards. Cemeteries became more survivor-friendly. Graveyards evolved into tree-filled park settings. Many cemeteries emerged as highly appropriate sites to host a Sunday picnic at the flower-decorated grave of a loved one. Grieving angels, classical muses, and sleeping children all took their place in early 20th Century

flowers, weeping willow trees, and classical urns offered a more classical view of death than earlier grave stones.

Victorian gravestones By the Victorian period, circa 1838-1901, the references to death on gravestones emerge as far less frightening and intimidating than earlier examples. The highlight of graveyard artistry came in the

(AUNTED#AVEREADYFOR(ALLOWEENTHRILLSEEKERS It may have been broad daylight outside, but I couldn’t see a thing from within the Haunted Cave’s “vortex.� I was nearing the end of a behind-the-scenes tour of the popular Halloween destination. Russ Gusching, who runs the place, momentarily had left me alone while he flipped the breaker to activate the vortex room so I could experience it for myself. There I stood, surrounded by darkness and silence, save from the creaking and groaning of the building and the faint sound of a passing train. And then the room began to move. A circular wall spun around the walkway, its glowing, electric paint splatters moving all around me. I instantly lost my equilibrium and clumsily stepped along the walkway, one hand gripped to a railing to keep from falling over. “Is the floor moving, too?� I asked.

“No, the bridge is completely fixed, the room is just spinning around you,� Gusching said. Of course he wasn’t phased by the motion — he had seen this before a hundred times. The vortex is just one of many illusions created by Gusching and owners Tim Stone and Jerry McCann, who have been in business now for 15 years. The Haunted Cave known today started out on a much smaller scale — as a fraternity party. Stone went all out for Halloween to throw a huge scare-fest for family and friends. He tried to outdo himself each year, eventually needing a party space that was 2,0003,000 square feet to accommodate 350 guests. His parties required an entire month to prepare. Then in the late 90s, he decided to take it further, turning the party into an attraction open to the public. It was probably the right move. During peak

The Haunted Cave Cost: $10 general admission; $13 fast pass Location: 4410 Arden Drive, Fort Wayne Hours: For current hours, visit season, the Haunted Cave spooks an average of 1,200-1,300 thrillseekers on Saturday nights alone. At times, the line to enter wraps around the street. Even the line for fast-pass ticketholders may see an hour wait, compared to two hours in the general admission line. “It’s pretty much a yearround job,� Gusching said. “This year we bit off more than we can chew, which


2USS'USCHINGISACCOMPANIEDBYh%DDIEvTHESKELETONINTHESWAMPROOMATTHE(AUNTED#AVE we do every now and then. So here we are scrambling.� At this time of year, Gusching is just trying to make it through the motions: work, Haunted Cave, sleep and repeat, he said. Gusching took a week

off from another job to focus on the attraction full time, which meant perfecting the Haunted Cave’s newest effect — the gas chamber: A door will shut behind cave-goers once they enter the box. A light and sound

show will distract them as the box moves so slowly, they can’t feel it’s happening. When the door reopens, the group will exit from the same door they entered wondering -iiÊCAVE, >}iÊ ™

Amish-owned Walnut Creek has been a staple in the Amish community, providing quality deli foods for more than 30 years. The Leo Crossing location, Doug Nolt said, provides a great location for people looking for a deli without making a trip to Holmes City or other Amish strongholds. “It really is one of the only places to get good quality Amish meat and cheese in the city,� Doug Nolt said. In addition to the deli, Nolt’s offers bakery items — breads and pastries — made by Rise and Roll Bakery in Ship-

shewana along with a selection of grocery items. “We have all Amish baked goods fresh every day,â€? Doug Nolt said. Drivers make the daily 80-minute drive to and from Shipshewana to bring back breads, doughnuts and other items, which saves countless customers from making the drive themselves. Rise and Roll, Doug Nolt said, has quite a local following. “People usually drive to Shipshewana if they want Rise and Roll. These are the best baked items I’ve ever tasted — we sell out all the time,â€? Doug Nolt said. “We’re the only place in Fort Wayne selling Rise and Roll.â€? Rise and Roll products only are available at a store in Napanee and at gas stations in the Goshen area. For summit city residents, though, Nolt’s Marketplace Deli is the place to go, Doug Nolt said. In addition to the meats, cheese and bakery items, the deli offers made-toorder sandwiches, wraps and paninis for carry-out service, as well as salads made fresh daily. Choices include pasta salad, potato salad, chicken salad and meat salad. The store also makes several of its own salad dressings. “The taste and pricing set us apart,â€? Doug Nolt said. -iiĂŠDELI, ÂŤ>}iĂŠ x

to not only diabetes, but the eye conditions affecting both type 1 and type 2 patients. Diabetes can present in the eye in many ways, and whether or not you are on insulin, the longer a person is diabetic, the more likely he or she will have problems. Eye doctors can, sometimes, be the first to be suspicious of diabetes in a patient even before it is diagnosed with blood work. Sometimes patients will come in simply with blurry vision. Rapid changes in glasses prescription can be a clue that blood glucose is abnormal. High sugar in some people can cause these big shifts as the lens in the eye swells. Of bigger concern, however, are problems in the retina, or back lining of the eye that registers light. The retina is fed by a blood vessel supply where the tiniest branches can leak fluid or bleed as they become weak from high blood sugar. This stage, called non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy, and according to the National Institutes of

,AUGHLIN Health (NIH), between 40-45% of American diabetics have it. This early damage is just monitored by your primary eye doctor and can often be controlled with better blood sugar management, along with better blood pressure and cholesterol control. All of these things affect the health of the small blood vessels. If the damage progresses though, it can lead to poor blood flow to parts of the retina and the eye will try to make up for it by growing new blood vessels for nourishment. These vessels themselves do not affect vision, but they are weak and can bleed easily. This proliferative diabetic retinopathy leaves a person at high risk for vision loss as the bleeding can progress to scarring, pulling on the retina, and even retinal detachment.

Advanced diabetic retinopathy is mostly treated by retinal surgeons who are very specialized eye doctors. It can include laser therapy to help shrink the abnormal blood vessels, or injections into the eye of a medicine that can stop the signals for new blood vessel growth. Diabetics are also at risk of macular edema. This is swelling in the very center region of the retina and can occur at any stage of retinopathy. The fluid leakage here is dangerous because as it scars, it can leave a permanent blind spot in the middle of a person’s vision. It is treated in similar ways to proliferative retinopathy with different types of lasers or injections. Diabetics are also at a higher risk of glaucoma than other adults and at a younger age. This may be related to blood flow to the optic nerve. Overall, the standard of care is yearly dilated eye exams for all diabetics with the goal of damage being caught and managed early. According to the NIH, “people with proliferative retinopathy can reduce their risk of blindness by 95 percent with timely treatment.� Your doctor that manages your diabetes will often ask about these yearly eye

exams as they can signal how your body is doing overall with the disease. Make sure your eye doctor is communicating the results. Remember, it is important to not wait for symptoms, and since diabetes is a medical condition, eye exams to watch for related changes, regardless of if damage is present, should be covered under your medical insurance (ie: Medicare, Anthem, Aetna, PHP, etc.), even if you do not carry vision insurance. Check with your optometrist or general ophthalmologist to make sure he or she is a provider, and take the time now to have your eyes checked during American Diabetes Month if it has been more than a year since your last dilated eye exam. As always, follow your diabetes doctor’s recommendations for diet, exercise, and medications knowing they can also be saving your sight. This is a guest column. Dr. Kara Heine Laughlin now is exclusively practicing at the Grabill Eye Center, 13813 State St. in Grabill. Grabill Eye Center offers complete vision care, close to home to the citizens of Northeast Allen County and surrounding areas.

>Ă›iĂŠ>ĂŠÂ…i>Ă€ĂŒÂ‡Â…i>Â?ĂŒÂ…ĂžĂŠ>Â?Â?ÂœĂœii˜ Halloween is known to bring out the sweet-toothed animal in us all. Try these tips from the American Heart Association for a healthier All Hallow’s Eve this year: • Have a healthy meal before trick-ortreating to reduce temptation to snack while walking. • Make trick-or-treating a workout. Set a goal of how many houses you will walk to or wear pedometers and have healthy prizes for the person who has the most steps. • Think about a healthier version of treats to give out at your house: Mini boxes of raisins, 100 percent juice juiceboxes, snack-sized pretzels, pre-packaged trail mixes, pre-packaged dried fruits, single serving fruit cups, crayons, Halloween stickers, silly bands, tooth brushes, bubbles, plastic spiders, glow sticks, pencils or coloring books. Avoid using toys that could be a choking hazard to little ones. • Find the right-sized collection bag for your child. Steer clear of the pillowcase method. • Smart safety tips to keep in mind: bring a flash light while walking, only go to houses with the porch light on, inspect candy before allowing children to eat it and be on the way home before the street lights come on. • Remember to stay in groups when trick-or-treating. Don’t allow children to walk up to a house alone and always keep a watchful eye on where they are headed next. Use sidewalks when available, and use crosswalks when crossing busier

streets. • Want to avoid candy and masses of kids? Dress your family up in their costumes and go see a movie, go to the toy store and have your child pick out their favorite toy, see if local malls have trick-or-treat within the stores, local police and fire stations may offer this alternative as well. Follow these suggestions to have a healthy post-Halloween: • Avoid the urge to buy on-sale candy in the grocery stores after Halloween. The decision not to buy something once is a lot easier than saying no every time you walk by the candy jar • Pick out enough candy for one piece a day for five days and put those in the fridge. When your child asks for a piece of candy, make sure to pair it with a healthy snack like an apple, a banana, some healthy nuts. • “Buy backâ€? the candy from your child with money or tokens they can trade in for a fun activity like a day at the zoo or an ice skating adventure • As a parent, you can encourage your kids to evaluate their Halloween treat choices and physical activity habits. Limit their treat intake and add extra physical activity after snacking. Be a good role model and watch your sugar intake as well. It will help send a message that good health is important to your family. • Some dentist offices have been known to buy back the candy from their patients so be on the lookout for that option.

Two years ago, Pine Hills Church was bursting at its seems. Not only did the church welcome more than 600 people each weekend with three worship services, it boasted a thriving youth ministry, several small group studies and an initiative to plant a church in West Africa. It was clear, said executive pastor Steve Shaffer, the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facilities needed to grow, too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;About two years ago the church was growing at a rate that they knew they would have to add on or purchase land to build on,â&#x20AC;? said Shaffer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More space was needed for connecting and community.â&#x20AC;? At the same time, the former Carroll Road Christian Church property had gone into foreclosure, Shaffer said. At a cost of $2.8 million, purchasing and renovating the abandoned church proved to be Pine Hillsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best choice. A three-year giving campaign, Unleashed, was undertaken to raise $800,000. Shaffer said Unleashed was more than successful, with giving on track and above the pledged amount. The church kicked off its first worship service in the new site on Oct. 7. Shaffer said the first Sunday in the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new home was everything the congregation expected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone can see the potential for the future,â&#x20AC;? Shaffer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We moved from 17,000 to 18,000

The church now has plenty room to spread out with a worship space seating 580 and a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s area with a check-in and check-out station to increase youth safety, Shaffer said. Churchgoers also can stop at The Fix, a small coffee shop within the church, for a drink and a danish on the way to the full gym, which will be used for a host of sporting activities. A student ministry area seats 150 and gives kids a space of their own. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kitchen. The new location features a commercial kitchen, big enough for catering receptions and monthly family meals. At the Coldwater Road location, church members

never would have been able to pack 200 food baskets for children at Abbett Elementary School to use during winter break. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To bring in all the food â&#x20AC;&#x201D; we provide ham, turkey, and two baskets of canned foods to feed each family for two weeks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; our kitchen facility would not have been able to accommodate what we need to do,â&#x20AC;? Shaffer said. Shaffer said the church continues to grow, with more than 800 people in the pews each week. He sees more growth in Pine Hillsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; future.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel we are at a point in the community on the north side where the growth is coming our way,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are in a prime spot for continuing to reach out in the Fort Wayne area and spread the Word of Jesus Christ Our Lord.â&#x20AC;? The churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coldwater Road location wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sit empty after the move as The Learning Place, the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preschool and daycare, will remain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By us moving out, this provides The Learning Place with more opportunities to expand and grow, too,â&#x20AC;? Shaffer said.

how they ended up on the other side of the wall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think it will be a cool effect. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been getting more into the animated rides over the last couple years, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the things weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been focusing on this year,â&#x20AC;? Gusching said. The near 10,000-square-foot building features 17 rooms, each with different themes to play into just about every human fear: arachnophobia, claustrophobia, disorientation and a serious helping of the unexpected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of our rooms change as you walk through them. We have censors that trigger the effects to go off so that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting when you walk in. It just comes to life,â&#x20AC;? Gusching said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to make it like a roller coaster so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not complete gore, in-your-face scary from start to finish because you get numb to it. Some rooms are there just to give you a breather to calm the nerves.â&#x20AC;? Each room is staffed with actors who work to keep traffic flowing through the cave, all while making the hair stand up at the back of your neck. All these actors are volunteers. In fact, the cave is manned throughout the year by volunteers to help with everything from demolition and construction, to ticket-taking and acting. The Haunted Cave, which opened for the season Sept. 21, almost guarantees to have something new for visitors each year. Even before the season really had started, Gusching already was making plans for the next. But even without the actors and effects in motion, the Haunted Cave is just spooky. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This place creeps me out actually. At night when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re walking around and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just you and you hear the building creak and groan and moan, you just (think), â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Get me outtaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; here,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Gusching said with a laugh. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s saying a lot for someone who can walk the cave with his eyes closed. I think I will just take his word for it.

Q: When I attempt to put my 3 1/2-year-old daughter in her room for punishment, she refuses to go. I have to pick her up and take her, during which time she flails her arms, screams, and kicks. My back is paying for the struggle. Her dad doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have this problem with her, by the way. What can I do to make her go on her own without getting physical with her? A: Since you only describe the hassle involved in getting your daughter to go to her room, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to assume that once sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in there, she will stay until you set her free. If so, then your only â&#x20AC;&#x153;mistakeâ&#x20AC;? (the quotation marks are purposeful) is in forcing her to go to her room. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t misunderstand me. When you direct her to go to her room, she should go, without struggle, under the power of her own two feet. The mistake is not that you tell her to go, the


2OSEMOND mistake is that you MAKE her go. Currently, you tell her to go and she refuses, challenging you to force her. You accept the challenge, which means that even though you appear to â&#x20AC;&#x153;win,â&#x20AC;? you actually lose. How? By letting her define the terms under which she gets to her room. Furthermore, you end up paying more of a price for her misbehavior than she does. In so doing, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re violating my Agony Principle. It simply states that parents should not agonize over anything a child does or fails to do if the child is perfectly capable of

agonizing over it herself. In other words, the emotional consequences of a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s misbehavior should be borne by the child and the child alone. The solution is for you to stop trying to MAKE your daughter go to her room. Instead, When she misbehaves, and you tell her to go to her room (everything is fine to this point), and she refuses, just shrug your shoulders, say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Okay,â&#x20AC;? and walk away. That evening, immediately after the evening meal, you and your husband together should tell her that because she wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to her room when you told her to go, she has to go to bed right then and there. She will probably cry and protest, but that should be the end of it. Let that be your policy from now on. When she figures out (which should take no more than a few experiences of this sort) that if she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cooperate in a small consequence during the day, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big one

later, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll begin cooperating in the small one. This is an application of what I call the Godfather Principle: To move the emotional consequences of misbehavior off of a parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoulders (or back) onto the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, simply

make the child an offer she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t refuse. Marlon Brando was a parenting genius. One last word: The next time your daughter refuses to go to her room for punishment, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell her what awaits her after

supper. Surprises keep children on their toes, minding their pâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and qâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, and that sort of thing. Family psychologist John Rosemond answers parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; questions on his website at

A Very Unique Store!

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a certain amount of satisfaction in winning a national award for a product you and your staff put your heart and soul into. Just ask Blaine Stuckey, co-owner of Mad Anthony Brewing Co., which last week won a gold medal in the Great American Beer Festival national beer competition, the largest commercial beer competition in the world. Stuckey, who lives on #OURTESYPHOTO Jimmerson Lake, said the 3TUCKEY more than 500 brewers that put out top-quality products have a shot at winning top honors in national and international competition such as the Great American Beer Festival. You just never know if your beer is going to be honored. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a shocker. I was pleasantly surprised,â&#x20AC;? said Stuckey, whose company is headquartered in Fort Wayne and has a restaurant in Auburn. A store at Lake James is in the works. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re putting out good beer youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a shot.â&#x20AC;? There were more than 2,700 beers entered in the competition. The Great American Beer Festival awards gold, silver and bronze medals for excellence in 75 beerstyle categories but does not necessarily award medals to the top three finishers in a particular category, the festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website said. Mad Anthony was honored for its Ruby Raspberry Wheat beer in the Fruit Wheat Beer category. There were 38 beers entered in the category. Silver was awarded to Leinenkugelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Summer Shandy, Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co., Chippewa Falls, Wis.; and bronze went to 5 Lizard Latin-Style Witbier, 5 Rabbit Cerveceria, Bedford Park, Ill. Ruby Raspberry Wheat is available on tap at Mad Anthony brew pubs in northeast Indiana. It is also available for carryout in half-gallon growlers at the three stores, including seven days a week in Fort Wayne, home of the brewery. This is the second time Mad Anthony has won an award at the Great American Beer Festival competition. The other time was in 1999 for its Auburn Lager, which -iiĂ&#x160;AWARD, ÂŤ>}iĂ&#x160; ÂŁÂŁ
