Fitness means changes, not just resolutions "Y6ALERIE'OUGH

It often begins at the stroke of midnight, when another calendar year has come to an end and a new one begins. It’s that tiny voice inside that says this year will be different. The time has come, it says, to do more of this or less of that. It usually comes with a seemingly unshakable willpower, but as time goes on, the proverbial back burner takes hold, drowning out those promises of change with the obligations of everyday life. That’s right, it’s the New Year’s resolution. It should come as no surprise that the No. 1 resolution made and later broken by the majority is losing weight, whether through healthy eating or exercise. Health clubs that start the year bursting at the seams will return to a less dizzying pace come mid-February. So what is it about human beings that allows this tradition to continue? Perhaps it’s that they make the resolution at all. “The first thing I tell people when they come in is that we are not a New Year’s resolution gym,” said Justin Springer, who owns Fort Wayne Strength and Conditioning. Rather than resolutions, the CrossFit trainer helps people make lifestyle changes. As a result, his clients are seeing more than a just reduction in weight, “Our goal is to perfect human movement. (CrossFit) ensures you can move well and stave off decrepitude, which can keep people out of nursing homes,” Springer explained. “I know most people in their 20s, 30s and 40s aren’t really thinking about that, but it is totally relevant.” Springer referred to a quote by former gymnast and CrossFit founder Greg Glassman: “The needs of an Olympic athlete and the needs of my grandmother differ only by degree, not by kind.” Essentially, he meant that both should learn to squat properly. “The Olympic athlete may squat 500 pounds, and my

American Boychoir director to instruct in Fort Wayne The Ohio State University, and has completed coursework toward his doctoral degree in musical arts at the University of Illinois. He conducts choral festivals throughout the United States. “It is a treat to bring him to Fort Wayne,” said Jonathan Busarow, the Children’s Choir’s artistic director. “We have not brought a clinician of his caliber to work with the kids in a very long time.” High school-age children will participate in a clinic Friday evening. Younger children will rehearse Saturday morning. The age groups will rehearse together before the concert. The Indiana Music Educators Association will hold its annual conference Jan. 17-19 at the Grand Wayne Convention Center, 120 W. Jefferson Blvd. “We’ve bumped our schedule so the teachers can attend,” Hobby said. The nonsectarian boys choir serves grades four through eight. Founded in Columbus, Ohio, in 1937, the school moved to Princeton, N.J., in 1950. “It’s just an additional way of sharing with the community,” Hobby said. “We look forward to growing musically and creating new friendships.” The American Boychoir School recruits from throughout the United States.

American Boychoir music director Fernando Malvar-Ruiz will lead two Fort Wayne youth choirs in an instructional clinic and concert. Two age groups from the Fort Wayne Children’s Choir and Trinity English Lutheran Church will perform at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19, at the church, 405 W. Wayne St. The public is welcome. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for the kids to work with someone like him, and for us as directors,” said Robert A. Hobby, the church’s director of music. “He’s just very gracious and energetic and I think it will be an exciting opportunity for the kids to grow musically, but also in an environment with a person who is fun and engaging.” Trinity has held similar collaborations with children’s choirs from First Presbyterian Church, Plymouth Church, and other organizations, Hobby said. Those visiting clinicians have included lyric soprano Helen Kemp and choral director Hilary Apfeldsadt. “It’s more cost-effective to share some of the financial responsibilities, but also to share some of the experiences and the rewards,” Hobby said. Malvar-Ruiz, a native of Spain, holds a master’s degree in choral conducting from

Haven High School, weight training for various sports activities. In the years that followed, weightlifting would exacerbate the pain and cripple his efforts at the gym. About a year ago, Voss signed up for Fort Wayne Strength and Conditioning’s “Best Shape of Your Life Challenge,” a six-week diet and fitness program that Springer uses to track progress, and later reward the most-improved participants with cash prizes. Since then, Voss has lost 61 pounds, decreased his body fat by 7.1 percent, and lost 12 inches in his waist. But there were other improvements to his health that he wasn’t even anticipating. “For the past four months, I haven’t had any issues with my back,” Voss said. “The reason was because I wasn’t lifting correctly and there were parts of my body I needed to strengthen. With the help of mobilization and training, I’ve been able to learn what to do to avoid those injuries and strengthen my core.” The program also influenced him to change his eating habits to be consistent with the Paleo diet (also known as the paleolithic or “caveman” diet), which promotes the consumption of foods found in nature: game meat, fish, vegetables, wild fruits, eggs and nuts. “My blood pressure dropped, several of my blood work numbers improved and it gave me the knowledge of monitoring my food intake and what I am putting into my body,” Voss said. “The lifestyle isn’t for everyone, but in my opinion it’s worth trying.” “I like the six-week challenge because it resets the body,” Springer said. “It’s a lifestyle approach, not a way to lose weight for spring break. I mean, I like pizza and beer, too … let’s not get too crazy. But, the whole premise is to eat real food. I don’t think too many people are going to argue with that.”

Goodwill clients find independence through work "Y'ARTH3NOW

While Goodwill’s nine area stores are meeting

financial goals, more than 200 workers are achieving intangible goals. Jobs training projects lead to self-esteem and

independence, said Bill Warriner, the president and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Northeast Indiana Inc.

Business Leadership Recognition Power Breakfast


Business Weekly will honor Ian Rolland at the annual Business Weekly Leadership Recognition Power Breakfast. This award recognizes outstanding leadership in northeast Indiana. Ian Rolland is the retired chairman of Lincoln National Corp. The Fort Wayne native occupied executive-level positions at Lincoln until his election to senior vice president in 1973. He became president and a director of Lincoln National Corp. in 1975, and named CEO two years later. In 1992 he was named chairman and CEO, retiring in June 1998. Dedicated to the University of Saint Francis, he served as a director from 1976-1995, and is treasurer for the board of trustees. He is also very active in many Fort Wayne community organizations.

“Nobody wants to be dependent,� Warriner said. “People want to have meaningful, productive lives. When you’re working, you can call your own shots. All of a sudden, you’re making more and more decisions.� Clients come to Goodwill with disabilities ranging from cognitive difficulties to vision, hearing or physical disabilities. Other clients have vocational disadvantages. A client might be an ex-offender, or have less than a high school education, or have a work history “that’s been more down than up,� Warriner said. “They have the same goals that we all have,� Client Service Director Randy Wolf said. “They want to have an apartment or a house, they want to get a car, buy clothing, go out to shop, to eat, go to movies, and have money to do that.� “It feels good when you help someone else succeed or take another step in the quest for independence, to be able to be self-sufficient,� Wolf said.

So throughout the year we help anywhere from 30 to 60 people get employed,â€? he said. The level of service varies according to the individual. “We just help them get their resumĂŠ put together,â€? Wolf said. “We

help them practice their interviewing, to get them ready for the job interview, so when they sit in front of that employer we can put our best foot forward.â€? “Some need ongoing support,â€?

DONATE vÀœ“Ê*>}iÊÓ Some clients are employed within Goodwill, and some find jobs outside the agency. Wolf said the goal is to find competitive jobs, whether in retail or fast food or in other professional roles. Companies also ask Goodwill to help evaluate workers’ strengths, Wolf said. Schools partner with Goodwill to provide job skills to special-education students. Participants gain both work skills and social skills that are needed in the workplace, Wolf said. Other schools may contact Wolf about partnerships. Current participants are the Northeast Indiana Special Education Cooperative, East Allen Community Schools, Southwest Allen County Schools, and Huntington County Community Schools. A worker who achieves freedom from food stamps or Social Security gains self-esteem, Warriner said, and in turn contributes to the community. “People who work for us and the people we place in the community also do something very important, and that is they pay taxes, they add to the tax base,” he said. “They’re paying all of their federal and state withholding taxes.

Having Surgery, Getting Steroid Shots or Taking Pain Killers For Your Back Pain Might NOT Be The Answer You’re Looking For.

You must be tired of having to live with back pain. You’re not alone because over 80% of the population will suffer with back pain at some point in their life. Until recently you had 4 main choices when it came to treating back pain caused by herniated discs: 1. Live with the pain, which lets your problem get worse. 2. Take prescription pain medication, which just covered up your symptoms and didn’t correct the cause of your problem. 3. Undergo dangerous surgery, which can cause Failed Back Surgery Syndrome. 4. Dangerous Epidural shots. Now there is a non-invasive procedure for cervical and lumbar back pain that doesn’t use medications, dangergous shots or require surgery. It’s called Spinal Decompression*and is performed using a specialized table called the Spinal Decompression with Cold Laser/Active Therapeutic Motion (ATM®2).

If you are suffering with any of the following conditions: * Back pain/Neck pain * Leg Pain/Sciatica * Disc Degeneration * Spinal Stenosis * Herniated Discs then you may be a candidate for this procedure. This procedure is safe, painless and doesn’t use any medications, dangerous shots or require surgery. It’s so gentle that most patients fall asleep during the procedure.

The Spinal Decompression with Cold Laser/Active Therapeutic Motion (ATM®2) decompression table is designed to gently and precisely distract the spine and take the pressure off your spinal nerves.

Advanced Non-Surgical Treatment for Herniated and Degenerated Discs

The Spinal Decompression with Cold Laser/Active Therapeutic Motion (ATM®2) table is computerized and a completely customized procedure. This is state-of-the-art, 21st century technology. Here’s what some satisfied patient's have said about their experience with the Spinal Decompression with Cold Laser/Active Therapeutic Motion (ATM®2) table: “Spinal Decompression with Cold Laser/Active Therapeutic Motion (ATM®2) was very comfortable and relaxing and most days, I slept through my treatment. Best of all, I got great results with spinal decompression therapy. It increased my mobility and greatly eliminated my pain. Spinal Decompression with Cold Laser/Active Therapeutic Motion (ATM®2) decreased the pain in my lower back by 100%. I would recommend Spinal Decompression with Cold Laser/Active Therapeutic Motion (ATM®2) because it is a great alternative to invasive surgery.” Dennis G. “The therapy was very comfortable and very easy that at times I was so relaxed I could have fallen asleep. This is what I was searching for all along and now I am happy to say my pain is gone and my life is back”. Juanita H.

After starting at the gym, the Huntington couple also adopted a Paleo-way of eating, and now tout its benefits. “I have been listening more to my body and what my body wants. It’s hard to listen when your body is being hijacked by wheat, sugar and all this processed food,â€? Pam said. “If you remove that and really listen to what your body wants, it becomes so much easier. I feel so much better and have so much energy.â€? Of course, this was not solely because of a change in diet. The two of them try to fit CrossFit into their routine at least four to five times per week. The most exercise the Felixes used to get on a regular basis was taking the family dog for walks.

“We’ve never been New Year’s resolution kind of people,� Carlos said, “but we have been like, ‘We’re going to get fit!’ and then a month later, ‘Well, maybe tomorrow.’ � But in just one year, their lifestyle has changed so dramatically that they recently spent their anniversary together at the gym. (Yes, you read that correctly.) “We’re spending more time together than we used to. It really has changed our lives. Now the celebration is working out together,� Carlos said, adding that even if they did do something such as take a trip somewhere, they would still work out on vacation days. “That’s another thing about the CrossFit community — you can go anywhere,� he said. “Before we go on vacation, we will find the nearest CrossFit gym to work out while we’re there.� “The only thing that keeps us from doing it six to seven days a week are other commitments in our lives. It’s definitely made me a lot less grouchy,� Pam said. “I could be having the worst day, but I work out and by the time I get home, I realize I’m relaxed. This wasn’t a bad day, this was a great day.�

Construction on track at The Heritage of Fort Wayne Construction continues on the $15 million The Heritage of Fort Wayne continuing care living center. Company spokeswoman Pat Hart said the project is on track for opening in late 2013 or early 2014. About 70 people were on hand as United Methodist Memorial Home broke ground on the project at 5250 Heritage Parkway in November. The construction area fronts St. Joe Road, just south of Interstate 469. The 90,000-square-foot facility will house about 66 beds, consisting of

residential and assistedliving apartments, private healthcare suites, memory care assisted living and private healthcare suites, and private rehabilitation suites. Hart said the center will employ about 100 people, both full-time and part-time, in medical, nursing, therapy, housekeeping, dietary, maintenance and administration. The architect for the project is Morrison Kattman Menze Inc. Contracts have been awarded to Schenkel Construction Inc., Hambrock Electric Inc.,

and A. Hattersley & Sons Inc. The new living center is located on the front acreage of The Villas at Heritage Lakes, an independent, free-standing villa community which started construction in 2009, itself a $10 million project.

Favored venue to welcome circus "Y'ARTH3NOW

Steve Trump says the circus is a lot of work, and a lot of fun. Hundreds of volunteers share the work of selling tickets for the 67th installment of the Mizpah Shrine Circus, Jan. 24-27 at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum. Thousands of schoolchildren will take in the earliest of seven shows. “They’ll be in awe of the size of the Coliseum, the elephants, the tigers, anything and everything,” Trump said. “Some of them will look at those elephants, and go ‘wow.’ ” School groups attend the Thursday morning and Friday morning shows for free. About 8,000 schoolchildren will attend. The circus director, who has helped in assorted roles for 14 years, said Shriners work to offer affordable, quality entertainment while raising money for Shrine projects. “When you can take a family of four to the circus and feed them for a hundred dollars, that’s pretty cheap entertainment,” Trump said. That’s a high-end estimate, he said. Cheaper fare is available. The circus offers online ticket discounts. The Fort Wayne show opens the 2013 season for the Zerbini Circus. Larry Solheim, the general manager for the circus, said Fort Wayne is the flagship show for the circus. The Coliseum is a great venue, he said, and justifies the investment in extra attractions. Circus-goers will see 15

tigers, elephants, horses, BMX riders, a human crossbow and much more, he said. Circus owner Tarzan Zerbini first performed in Fort Wayne in 1972, when he visited with another circus. “We have a really successful show in Fort Wayne,” he said, adding that the circus attracts 75,000 to 80,000 people to the Coliseum. Zerbini said he has found good friends in For Wayne. Trump said he learned the planning process from his predecessor, Steve Johnson, who now handles publicity for the circus. “We’ve just grown over the years,” Johnson said. That growth has included the addition of the fair in conjunction with the circus, in about 2000. The circus trailers for the performers and their animals were housed in the basement of the auditorium. “Well everybody wanted to go down and see the animals,” Johnson said, “so we started putting the trailers outside and all the animals in the basement, where they can see the elephants, see the tigers, and all the performing animals.” Admission to that fair is free. Children may visit a petting zoo, featuring domesticated animals such as miniature horses, goats, potbelly pigs, chickens and sheep. Face-painting is available. For an extra charge, kids may enjoy batteryoperated cars or pony rides, or have their photo taken with the petting zoo animals.

How does months of rehab sound?

St. Joseph Township Trustee Richard Uhrick has named Timothy B. Jones as fire chief of St. Joseph Township Fire Rescue Corp. On Dec. 20, the St. Joseph Township Board approved a contract with the new nonprofit fire corporation for the purpose of reorganizing fire protection services for the unincorporated area of St. Joseph Township. Jones will report to a board of directors accountable to the St. Joseph Township trustee, as the member of the corporation. Jones served in the St. Joseph Township Fire Department for 25 years, acquiring numerous certifications.

“Tim’s experience and qualifications are impressive. He’s easily one of the most well credentialed fire chiefs to ever serve St. Joseph Township,” Uhrick said. “His experience, leadership abilities and can-do attitude are what was needed to reorganize this department and see that fire protection for the residents of the unincorporated area of St. Joseph Township is top-notch.” Jones’ appointment and the operation of the new corporation began Jan. 1. Applications for service in the new department are available at or at the trustee’s office, 6033 Maplecrest Road.

College in Crawfordsville. Associated Churches of Fort Wayne and Allen County has partnered with the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance of Fort Wayne to present the annual tribute to King for more than 25 years. Senior pastor the Rev. John P. Gardner said Plymouth has been host to the service since its beginning. Gardner commended Lake’s record of scholarly pursuits and academic success. “He brings honor to the community,” Gardner said. “It’s a service that appeals to these church coalitions, and to the community of people who are wanting to keep in touch and keep connected to Dr. King’s dream, his vision and his inspiration,” Gardner said. “The dream grows dim over the course of time, doesn’t it? And it needs to be retrieved and we need to be coming together to remember that he is an inspiration that helps us in our world.” Gardner said that world “can sometimes be somewhat brutish and less than we would like for it to be.” Lake was an archivist for The Martin Luther King Jr. Research and Education Institute, at Stanford University. In 1985, Coretta Scott King invited Stanford historian Clayborne Carson to direct the King Papers Project at Stanford. Lake worked with Carson in preserving the record of King’s life. “It’s no doubt we’ve made progress in race relations,” Lake said, citing progress against segregation and voting restrictions. “We do have somewhere to go in terms of

eliminating racism in terms of attitudes.” Lake participated in the Native Tongue Lecture Series in April at IPFW. He addressed African-American intellectual Cornell West’s criticism of President Obama’s economic and social policies. Lake said he discussed how King’s love translates into political action. He said West and Obama express “that Kingsian value” differently. “I always wanted to be a professor,” said Lake, adding that he received a good education in Fort Wayne. Gardner, of Plymouth Church, said, “Fort Wayne does a good job of observing the birth date and the federal holiday.

As the 28th annual Unity Day celebration approaches, MLK Club President Bennie Edwards is quick to point out that the organization serves Fort Wayne throughout the year. “Unity Day is our biggest event, but we also do Santa on Tour,” Edwards said. That Dec. 8 event especially served children of the Renaissance Pointe YMCA, 2323 Bowser Ave., Edwards said. “We had about 160 kids and we gave them trolley rides through downtown to see the Christmas lights. We had two Santa Clauses; one rode the trolley and one handed out gifts.” Children enjoyed gifts, games, bingo, painting and decorating Christmas ornaments, Edwards said. The Christmas celebration also includes stories. “We always try to have a civil rights person talk to our youth,” said Fran

Grant, the MLK Club vice president. The MLK Club also solicits themes from high school students and awards scholarships at the annual Unity Day. That celebration will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Jan. 21, at the Grand Wayne Convention Center, 120 W. Jefferson Blvd. Admission is $5 per person. The fifth annual Breakfast with the Clergy fellowship will be from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. that day at the Downtown Courtyard by Marriott. Edwards said the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge, dedicated June 4, will be the centerpiece of the Unity Day celebration. “We are very proud of the bridge here in Fort Wayne,” Edwards said, “and we’re using that as the cover for our souvenir program and the theme for our program.” He thanked the city council and other city leaders for the work that made the designation possible. Delegates do not plan to visit the bridge as a group, Edwards said. However, he said the MLK Club plans an observance in summer 2013, where Clinton Street spans the St. Mary’s River. The occasion is the 50th anniversary of King’s Aug. 28, 1963, “I Have a Dream” speech from the

steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. Mayor James A. Young of Philadelphia, Miss., will serve as keynote speaker of the Jan. 21 celebration. Young is the first black mayor of the city that was made infamous by the 1964 slayings of three civil rights workers, as told in the 1988 movie “Mississippi Burning.” Edwards said Young is coming to Fort Wayne at the invitation of a family friend, George Smith. Grant, the club’s vice president, also serves as program director for Unity Day. She said the celebration is the largest of its kind in Indiana. “We generally have about 2,000 people,” Grant said. That number includes vendors, who sell their wares and distribute information to visitors. The Rev. Roger Reece, the executive pastor of Associated Churches of Fort Wayne and Allen County, will offer prayer at the breakfast. The breakfast speaker is the Rev. Anthony R. Pettus Sr. of the Greater Progressive Church, 2215 John St. For breakfast reservations, RSVP by calling (260) 493-0980. Highlights include a gospel festival from 10 a.m. to noon, free health screenings, introduction of dignitaries, a proclamation

from Mayor Tom Henry, and awards to organizations and individuals. The club will present two scholarships, Grant said, to deserving high school seniors or first-year college students. Selections are based on essays that test the students’ knowledge of King. This year’s essay deadline has passed, she said. “At the end of the day, the last two hours, we have a big youth explosion, where we highlight youth talent, praise dancing, singing, and puppet ministries from different churches,” Grant said. “There are approximately nine or 10 churches involved in this.” Grant said it is fitting that this year’s celebration highlights the King Bridge, because King himself was a bridge builder. Each summer, Grant said, the MLK Club takes a tour of the National Civil Rights Museum, built around the former Lorraine Motel in Memphis, where King was assassinated April 4, 1968. That tour also visits central Mississippi, where the civil rights workers were slain in 1964. For information on the club or Unity Day, call (260) 493-1534 or (260) 493-0980, or visit

Stihl Timberworks Lumberjack Shows will present eight shows during the Outdoor Sports, Lake and Cabin Show at the Fort Wayne War Memorial Coliseum. Two Fort Wayne fire crews will replace the professional lumberjacks for another show, at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26. The lumberjack shows have been featured on â&#x20AC;&#x153;ABCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wide World of Sportsâ&#x20AC;? and other TV shows. The performances include chopping, log rolling, sawing techniques, and axe throwing.

Outdoors show features advice, clinics, exhibitors The fourth annual Outdoor Sports, Lake & Cabin Show is set for Jan. 25-27, almost two months earlier than its usual March date. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want our audience to have a better window of time to explore all aspects of leisure and recreation in the midst of winter,â&#x20AC;? said David Marquart, the director of operations for Coliseum Productions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once they have the proper tools, people can embrace warm weather when it returns.â&#x20AC;? Every year, the show attracts almost 10,000 outdoor enthusiasts and families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our show not only tailors to all-season sports, but expands upon a plethora of ways on how people can travel and live,â&#x20AC;? Marquart said. More than 150 exhibitors will offer show-only bargains, expert advice and the opportunity to compare, test and buy topquality products and services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And you certainly donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be outdoors to watch lumberjacks throw axes, chop wood, roll logs or carve with chain saws,â&#x20AC;? Marquart said in a news release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fully equipped to bring the woods inside with our new lumberjack shows.â&#x20AC;? Stihl Timberworks Lumberjack Shows have been featured on â&#x20AC;&#x153;ABCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wide World of Sports,â&#x20AC;? ESPNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jeep Trails,â&#x20AC;?

The lumberjacks will perform three shows per day and entertain audiences with a logging competition reflecting the early

1900s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good old-fashioned, cutting, climbing, log rolling, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gonna get wet kind of deal,â&#x20AC;? Marquart said. At 2 p.m. Saturday, firefighters from two Fort Wayne fire stations will compete against each other, replacing the traveling lumberjacks, Marquart said. More than 50 educational seminars, demonstrations and clinics are planned. Gander Mountain fishing and archery experts share their tricks of the trade next to master hunters, log and timber-frame home designers and canine handlers as they educate visitors on a variety of topics on three stages all weekend. The Sniper Company will provide shooting safety demos along with a new air rifle shooting range. Using a Harley-Davidson simulator, Ehlerding Motorsports will offer free stationary motorcycle rides and educate guests on how to shift gears, all without the risk of falling. A 25,000-gallon lagoon will allow guests to cruise the show in the water while taking a kayak or canoe for a test spin, sponsored by Rock104. Family fun includes a 40-foot video game arcade with multiplayer fishing and hunting games, all for free.

Lange said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have a 78-voice choir this year under Dr. Allen Hightowerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s direction, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a perfect fit for the musical ministry that we have here at Holy Cross.â&#x20AC;? The Holy Cross school serves 485 students in preschool through eighth grade. A freewill offering will be accepted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just happy to share the music with the community,â&#x20AC;? Lange said. The A Cappella Choir from Concordia Lutheran High School, under the direction of Tavis Schlicker, will sing three selec-

tions, and then join the Nordic Choir for two selections. This 70-member ensemble is made up of auditioned upperclassmen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Nordic Choir is Lutherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top touring choir and is generally considered to be one of the best choirs in the nation,â&#x20AC;? Schlicker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very excited and honored to sing with them.â&#x20AC;? The Luther campus is home to six choirs, in addition to bands and orchestras. In all, almost 1,000 students participate in Luther music programs. The Nordic Choir has performed in Norway, England, Germany, Russia, Poland, Hungary, Romania and other nations. The choir will travel to 16 cities on its 2013 tour, beginning with Naperville, Ill., on Jan. 16, and ending at home on Feb. 5. The choir gave four pretour performances, and plans six posttour appearances. Some concerts accept freewill offerings, but admission elsewhere ranges up to $39.

Girl Scouts start cookie sales with Red Cross partnership The Girl Scouts and the American Red Cross are uniting in January for Give Blood Get a Cookie. “It’s a way for two iconic organizations to work together,” said Tracy Duncan, the communications manager for the American Red Cross in Fort Wayne. “Not only will the Girl Scouts be coming to volunteer and help out with the blood drive, but anyone who donates also gets to sample a Girl Scout cookie,” Duncan said. This is the first year of the partnership. In northeast Indiana, the partnership kicks off Friday, Jan. 11, at the Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana office at 10008 Dupont Circle Drive. That blood drive is from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at

LUTHERAN SCHOOL An A-rated, accredited school for preschool through eighth grade where home, church, and school are partners in children’s spiritual and academic growth.


Thu. Feb. 7, 6pm Kindergarten Round-up

A light meal will be served at each event. Please invite your friends and neighbors. Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 3:18

the headquarters building, near Dupont Hospital. A similar event will be held from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Girl Scouts’ South Bend Service Center, 3620 Deal Court, South Bend. Girl Scout Cookie sales begin throughout the area that day. Girl Scouts will take orders no later than March 11. For $3.50 per box, customers can choose Thin Mints, Shortbread, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Caramel deLites, Thanks-A-Lot, Lemonades and the new Mango Cremes. In a news release, The Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana said the program will provide the community with its favorite treat, while Girl Scouts learn valuable life

lessons. The news release said the Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led business in the country. Through cookie program activities, girls learn how to plan, build teams, speak up, make decisions, solve problems and manage resources. “We don’t know of any other youth-oriented activity where the girls themselves decide what to do with the money they earn,” said Connie Frederick, the product program manager for the Girl Scouts. The public is invited to visit to find the nearest Cookie Booth, or to participate in the Cookie Share program, which provides cookies to military troops and personnel. For details, call (800) 283-4812.
