The Marching Cadets’ march down Constitution Avenue marked the culmination of a year of planning, fundraising and music. The Concordia Lutheran High School band arrived back in Fort Wayne the evening of May 29, fresh from their performance in the National Memorial Day Parade on May 27 in Washington, D.C. “They were thrilled,” said Dianne Moellering, the marching band director. “Some felt it was the high point of the year.” “We had a little summary get-together before we got home,” she said. “I think they were excited to represent Indiana on a national level, but also to honor our veterans on a national level.” Two chartered buses carried 70 students and 23 adults to the capital and back, leaving Fort Wayne at 5:30 p.m. on a Friday and arriving back at Concordia at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday. The full marching band and five musicians from the symphonic band presented “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” as arranged by Kent Klee.

The Marching Cadets pause along Constitution Avenue for a moment of silence during the National Memorial Day Parade. An 2:58 p.m., the Cadets and the entire procession halted for a parade rest. Two minutes of silence honored America’s veterans. “That’s the last performance this year,” Moellering said after the band’s return. For graduating seniors, it was their last hour in a Cadet uniform. Moellering said the national parade committee reviewed Concordia’s program online and issued the invitation last summer. Then, the work and fundraising began. “The kids paid a portion of it and we fundraised all last school year,” she said.

“It’s a one-day event, but we cram in enough for a week,” said RiverFest project manager Sara Payne. The fourth annual celebration of Fort Wayne’s rivers will fill the IPFW campus on Saturday, June 22. The food, fireworks and music return, to be joined by the Mud Run, Farm to Fork and other new events. Teams of staff and students and other local groups have been busy preparing their crafts for the first Cardboard Regatta. As late as 10:30 that morning, teams can pay $25 and build a twoperson boat to challenge the St. Joseph River. The highly publicized addition is just one important part of the overall festival, according to Tina Torres, who supports the regatta on behalf of IPFW Alumni Relations. Kelly Box & Packaging and ROCK 104 are sponsoring the regatta. For more information, go to ipfw.edu/alumni or call (260) 481-6807. Payne became involved with RiverFest in 2012. “It was so exciting to be part of

The St. Joseph River is the local point of RiverFest, to be celebrated June 22 on the IPFW campus. something that has so much momentum,” she said. “Even though Riverfest is so young relative to other festivals in the area, the enthusiasm from the participants is so amazing. That’s a good indication that what we’re doing is resonating with the community.” Louise Teague, the special projects director at IPFW, said RiverFest was the brain child of Irene Walters, IPFW’s executive director of University Relations and Communications.

Georgetown concerts celebrate community more than 30 years. Partee said Tom Jehl worked to further the sense of community surrounding the East State Boulevard shopping center. The square launched Trick or Treat at Georgetown Square, which has provided children with a safe Halloween experience every October since 1972. “We wanted to think of other fun events, so that’s where the farmers’ market came into play, and we started Kids’ Days,” Partee said. Those offerings will mark their fourth year in 2013, while the concert series marks its second year.

We’re still working on the challenge for this year, but we know they’ll be out there that day, supporting the festival.” “Every year it gets bigger and bigger,” Teague said. “This year we will have our festival favorites — canoe and kayak and pontoon rides on the St. Joseph River around the beautiful IPFW campus. “Another favorite is Family Fest, where we have events for smaller See RIVERS, Page A3

The music that will fill Georgetown Square the evening of June 28 is the sound of the shopping center saying thank you. More than 40 years of gratitude has been reviewed and refined for the Georgetown Fridays concert series, which continues July 26 and Aug. 23. Maureen Partee said her father, Tom Jehl, and his brothers developed the square in 1968. Tom Jehl died in 2006. Partee works with the merchants group and with the neighboring Georgetown Apartments.

as the concerts,” Partee said. She said a grant helped to fund the first year of the concerts. “We were going to have the ballet, the Philharmonic, and we were going to try to get the Civic Theatre to come out,” she said.

So it’s a lot of businesses and people and volunteers working together to pull this off.” “It’s giving back to the community,” Partee said. “We were calling it Georgetown Giveback. So many of these people have grown up here and have gone to events here, so it’s sort of the meeting place — the downtown — of northeast Fort Wayne.” The Junk Yard Band, which performed at the inaugural concert series in 2012, returns to open the 2013 concert series. Lead singer Dale Pequignot serves as spokesman for the band, which formed about 1978. “We lose track,” Pequignot said. Bass player Mike Hockaday and Pequignot co-founded the band. They share the stage with: Rick Brown, on saxophone and keyboards; Don Miles, drummer; and Greg Reszel, lead guitar. “We took our first professional job around 1980,” Pequignot said.

Maureen Partee and Jeff Sebeika rest during a 2012 concert at Georgetown Square. Partee and Sebeika serve on the shopping center’s events committee and organize the concerts. “We played for fun at Pelz Reception Hall, which is now called Lunz Reception Hall, on the southwest side of Fort Wayne. Back then there was a salvage yard right there, and we’d play for fun and people would flock to these parties and they called them the junkyard parties, and they called us the band at the junkyard, the junkyard band. And that’s how we got the name.” He said he and Hockaday formed the band in the late ’70s, at the height of disco. “That’s all you

heard,” Pequignot said. “And there just weren’t any rock ’n’ roll bands ni the night spots around Fort Wayne. It was prime time for people hearing some good old rock ’n’ roll again.” The band has a repertoire of more than 100 songs, which he describes as a sprinkling of music from the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. At each date, they try to deliver both the familiar and the surprising. “It’s in our interest to make it as See CONCERTS, Page A4

RIVERS from Page children, and they’re all hands-on activities where they can learn about the river and have fun.” “And for children 7 to 12, we have a new area called Fun in Motion, a whole series of inflatable extreme activities,” she said. “Kids just love to climb all over stuff, so there will be lots of bouncing, climbing, sliding.” “We also have ArtFest,” she continued, “which is a continuing favorite where we have over 30 artists from the local area and region, and they have their arts and crafts for sale.” “There has not been and continues to be no charge for RiverFest, parking or for the rides and activities on the river, so it is an event for everybody,” Teague said. From 2 p.m. to 11 p.m., nine local bands will perform rock, jazz and rhythm and blues music. The evening ends with a fireworks show, at 9:45 p.m. This year, the fireworks will be launched from floating barges on the river. “People just love those events, and they really are the core of what RiverFest does,” Teague said. “It’s all about getting on the rivers and enjoying them.” The 4k family-friendly run/walk over the Venderly Bridge returns. “Folks really enjoy that and they can bring their strollers,” Teague said. New this year is a 400meter kids run, which also is a training run for Fort4Fitness. “Another continuing favorite is of course food, and we’re going to have over 20 food vendors,

With the celebration shifting to the north and using more of the campus, she said, the setting will be more parklike. “I hope people bring their picnic baskets, because it’s just a beautiful setting to enjoy music, events and food right along the river, to watch the boats, watch the fireworks,” Teague said. “It’s going to be a great day.” “RiverFest is all about bringing attention to the rivers,” she said. Volunteers may sign up online to support the IPFW RiverFest 2013 presented by Steel Dynamics in conjunction with Fort Wayne Friends of the Rivers. Payne said about 300 people volunteered last year, and a similar turnout is expected this year. Go to the RiverFest website, ipfwriverfest.org, click on the volunteer tab, and then click on the link to sign up. All volunteers will need to attend the open house for volunteer training, Friday, June 21, any time from noon to 6 p.m. in front of the Rhinehart Music Center, where they will receive their T-shirts and volunteer packets, and will be able to ask questions. The orientation will take about 15–20 minutes. Volunteers must be at least age 16 and must pass a background check.

An invasive species has changed the mix of trees in northeast Indiana neighborhoods, parks and woodlands while altering the inventory at its nurseries and increasing business for arborists and tree services. The emerald ash borer has killed ash trees in 51 of the state’s counties and has been particularly devastating in northeast Indiana. The death toll of trees on property owned by the city of Fort Wayne has been in the thousands. The adult beetles typically start emerging from ash trees by the end of May. Purdue University’s Cooperative Extension Service recommends completion of an annual bark treatment by then to keep the beetle from feeding on it and then laying eggs. But for much of the area’s ash population, it is too late for treatment. The beetles can’t fly very far, but they can be transported accidentally by humans, which is how the Indiana Department of Natural Resources believes they spread to the northeast part of the state from Michigan. For years, the ash was the second most common variety of tree, next to the maple, in urban areas of northeast Indiana. In addition to thriving naturally in area woodlands, many ash trees were planted by developers, landscapers and park departments because they were hardy, easy and quick to grow and had a nice form. “They have lost one of

the favored trees in their industry,” said Vince Burkle, who works for DNR out of Fort Wayne as a nursery inspector. Nurseries plant varieties of trees in long blocks, and when an invasive species such as the emerald ash borer comes through, “there’s not much action they can take as far as treatment goes because no one is going to want to buy them,” he said. “The most economical thing for them to do was just bulldoze them.” “I know with some of the tree crews I’ve talked to, they are extremely busy because there are a significant number of (dead and dying ash) trees not only in Fort Wayne but in the entire area that are needing removal.” Wheatcraft Tree & Lawn went from three to nine independent contractors when the emerald ash borer tripled its business,

The city of Fort Wayne has removed 9,500 ash trees from the rights of way in residential areas and still has 4,500 to take down. “By the end of this summer, we will have removed 1,500 more,” said Natalie Eggeman, public information officer for the city’s Parks and Recreation Department. Ash trees with the greatest risk are being taken down first. If residents want to pay a private contractor to remove an ash tree from the right of way on their property before the Parks Department gets to it, the city has a program to reimburse part of that cost. The Citizen-Match Ash Tree Removal Program announced in April will reimburse from $30.42 to $444, depending on diameter. The reimbursement program is not available for trees on private property. Eggeman said about a dozen individuals have taken advantage of the program, and 30 to 40 have arranged to take advantage of a program where they can pay the city to plant a tree in the right of way on their property. The city will plant the trees in the fall. This year the cost of the street tree program is $50, reduced from last year’s price of $75, so that more residents can be accommodated. The Parks & Recreation Department will cover the remaining amount for each tree. City funding shortfalls might not allow approval of all applications, however, citizens have the option of providing the total cost. Applicants who are approved will receive a shade tree with a 2-inch diameter trunk, 8-14 feet tall, depending on the variety. Residents will be provided a list of trees and may choose the variety they think will grow best, look best and coordinate best with other trees on their street, or they can ask the Parks & Recreation Department for a recommendation. Call 427-6400. An ash tree removal application and guidelines can be found at fortwayneparks.org.

said its owner, Jim Wheatcraft. “I started buying more equipment, chippers and trucks,” he said. “Some of the tree businesses, they called themselves ‘Ash’ … and started naming themselves after the bug.” Wheatcraft said his business and other tree services saw a surge in demand for tree removal partly because the emerald ash borer got to ash trees that were treated ineffectively. “People really need to have a certified arborist treat their trees,” he said. “I’ve seen a lot of people who have used other, noncertified personnel to treat their trees, and (the beetles) get immune to certain kinds of chemicals and they don’t know.” To slow or stop the spread of the destruction, the state has quarantined all but 13 of its 92 counties and made it illegal to transport ash material such as logs and branches from quarantined areas into nonquarantined territory. The nonquarantined part of Indiana is in the southwest part of the state. Nonquarantined areas surrounding Indiana include Ohio, Kentucky and parts of Illinois. “We’ve probably got well over 100,000 acres of forest that have dead and dying ash,” said Phil Marshall, a forest health specialist with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. “We’re monitoring the progression of a killing wave of emerald ash borer.

A harmonious balance/

Philharmonic handles expanding initiatives amid shrinking revenue

By Rick Farrant rfarrant@fwbusiness.com

The Fort Wayne Philharmonic, which has struggled for years with finances, finds itself at a critical juncture this year as it attempts to balance revenue and expenses. In the 2012-2013 season, the orchestra has been operating with a $4.6 million budget, but its accumulated deficit is expected to rise to about $2.3 million by the close of June. That deficit is perilously close to a $2.5 million line of credit carried by the orchestra, and Philharmonic President and CEO J.L. Nave acknowledged there is a sense of urgency as the organization works on restructuring to fashion a balanced budget for 20132014. But the 69-year-old orchestra, he said, will not be going anywhere — even if a balanced budget can’t be achieved — in part because the organization has a $14-million endowment. “I would say that I feel probably the greatest sense of urgency at this point, just because of the numbers the way they are,” said Nave, who has headed the Philharmonic for seven years. “But I don’t sense in any way any kind of panic or impending doom. I’m incredibly confident that we’re going to make the changes and get things structured so we can move forward on a positive financial and artistic basis.” Orchestras throughout the country, once entrenched centerpieces of communities, have struggled financially in the last five years at least. The classical music landscape is littered with tales of orchestras shutting their doors or filing for bankruptcy reorganization or finding themselves embroiled in labor disputes. As recently as a few years ago, about 50 percent of the more than 800 orchestras belonging to the League of American Orchestras were running deficits, according to league President and CEO Jesse Rosen. But Rosen, like Nave, is optimistic. He said the percentage of orchestras in the red has been whittled to about 30 percent, with the rest balanced or in the black. Most of the orchestras that ceased operations have started up again, he said, and those that have emerged from bankruptcy are faring well. The persistent challenge for orchestras, Rosen said, is not that classical music has suddenly lost its luster and is now marginalized

Andrew Constantine, music director of the Fort Wayne Philharmonic, conducts the orchestra through another season. by society. “The intrinsic attachment to the repertoire seems as strong as ever,” he said. “I think the challenge for orchestras is to adapt themselves so they can find multiple ways to intersect with the ways people want to receive classical music.” And, he said, they must show that orchestras want to be an integral part of addressing community issues. “What orchestras are saying now,” Rosen said, “is that we are residents in this community and what happens in the community matters to us and we want to play an active role.” That, in itself, presents another hurdle: finding the money for new initiatives when orchestras, more so than many other arts groups, have built-in expenses that are difficult to lop. “In symphonies, you can’t play Beethoven’s Ninth any quicker and you can’t cut the number of instruments below a certain threshold,” said Michael Wilkerson, who teaches arts administration at Indiana University’s School of

Public and Environmental Affairs. “Symphonies are sort of stuck with this model where it’s difficult to cut costs.” Rosen cited a number of examples where orchestras have gone Nave beyond the routine to reach out to their respective communities. The Stockton Symphony in California commissioned an orchestral work to encourage solutions to conflict in that community, including gang violence. The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra organized a Women of the World festival to provide helpful, empowering information. And the Los Angeles Philharmonic and New York’s Bard College have partnered to create a master of arts teaching program for musicians who aspire to participate in the growing El Sistema movement in the U.S. — a movement that began in Venezuela to help lift children out of poverty. Nave said the Fort

Wayne Philharmonic has also championed community initiatives, including a Club Orchestra program with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Fort Wayne that is similar to El Sistema and teaches life skills to young people through music. The orchestra has also been partnering with Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne in research assessing the promising impact of music on people with Parkinson’s disease. Moreover, the local orchestra is addressing another need mentioned by Rosen: offering new music to audiences and thus creating a sense that classical music is not static but rather an exciting, evolving art form. Nave said the Fort Wayne orchestra has commissioned a work by highly regarded American composer Jonathan Leshnoff that will be presented in May 2014. On the money front, Rosen said there are things orchestras can do to generate revenue and rein in expenses, difficult as that might be. For its part, Nave said, the Fort Wayne orchestra anticipates reducing the

number of performances from 41 this season to 32 next year, in part by merging its Masterworks presentations elements of its Chamber Series of concerts, which typically involve a pared-down orchestra, and its Chamber Choral Series. The orchestra also will be looking at enhancing efficiencies with its staff of 14 full-time employees and eight part-time workers. Asked if that meant there might be layoffs, Nave said: “Everything is on the table as far as administrative efficiencies.” Bargaining talks, meanwhile, are under way ahead of an August deadline involving the orchestra’s 60 contract musicians. Nave said the

discussions have thus far been positive. “We’re working with the musicians to basically restructure the model, the business structure of the organization,” he said. “That’s happening on the revenue side as well as the expense side.” Such intense attention to money matters, IU’s Wilkerson said, is one of the dilemmas facing all arts organizations, and he has floated the idea of a 3 percent to 5 percent U.S. arts tax to create a fund that would be administered by a nonpartisan agency to help support a wide variety of creative endeavors while also encouraging artistic freedom removed from political pressures. “One of the worst side effects of the arts in America is that almost every manager will spend a lot of his or her energy trying to get more money,” Wilkerson said. “If these organizations were healthier financially, you would see the kind of innovation and creativity that excite communities. It’s sort of a chicken and egg thing.” Wilkerson, Rosen and Nave say the stakes are high in resolving the money issue because the arts are critical to quality of life and economic development in communities. In the case of orchestras, Wilkerson said, “I think it’s a question of whether we’re going to see them all shrink and go down one by one or whether we’re going to See BALANCE, Page A8

BALANCE from Page realize that they’re important enough as community assets that we should find a way to keep them going.� That will mean more than selling more tickets. In Fort Wayne, Nave said, just 30 percent of the orchestra’s revenue comes from earned income, such as ticket sales. Fifty-five percent comes from community contributions

A7 and ever-dwindling government support. The rest is drawn from the orchestra’s endowment. Nevertheless, Nave has noticed promising signs with earned income. The Masterworks series, which generally involves the full orchestra, has seen a 28 percent increase in season subscriptions in the last two years — from 940 to 1,205. That is the result, in

part, of an innovative subscription renewal program filled with incentives provided by the Madge Rothschild Foundation. Such innovation — in generating money and in enhancing artistic pursuits — is what gives Rosen hope. “I think this moment that we’re in,� he said, “has precipitated a level of experimentation and inno-

Cancer Services of Northeast Indianaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 11th annual Lapper & Survivors Day event raised more than $55,000 for people with cancer. More than 700 people attended the May 18 event. Proceeds provide emotional support, practical resources, and information to more than 3,000 people with cancer and their families each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cancer Services is a community-focused organization that directly impacts the lives of those living in our community,â&#x20AC;? said Kim Richards, a Cancer Services supporter and cancer survivor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If not for this organization, I would not have made it through my cancer experience. They were my solid

ground, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I participate in Lapper.â&#x20AC;? Lapper is a fundraiser designed to honor or memorialize those touched by cancer. When Lapper founder Jill Burnett first organized this event 11 years ago, she encouraged participants to test their own endurance and push past their comfort zone just as people with cancer do every day. That tradition continues, and each Lapper walked as many laps as they could around Brotherhood Place Office Park. Immediately after the walk, participants came together to enjoy Survivors Day. In a news release, the organization described the event as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a celebration for those who

have survived, an inspiration for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of support for families, and an outreach to the community.â&#x20AC;? Chick-fil-A served sandwiches, Jamison Meats provided hot dogs, and Edyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s was on hand with frozen treats. Cancer Servicesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mission is to enhance the quality of life of those affected by cancer by providing resources, information and compassionate assistance. Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana helps people who live in Allen, Adams, DeKalb, Huntington, Kosciusko, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wabash, Wells, and Whitley counties.

Finances block Ivy Tech’s move of medical programs By Linda Lipp lindal@fwbusiness.com

Ivy Tech Community College-Northeast will not move its health-sciences and nursing programs and the 2,000 students enrolled in them to the former Carew Medical Park building as a participant in the Life Science Education and Research Consortium of Northeast Indiana. The financing for the project, no matter what configuration the school tried, just wasn’t there. “I think we’ve about determined it’s not feasible for Ivy Tech,” said Jerrilee Mosier, chancellor for the Northeast campus. Plans for the consortium, which would have brought together educational offerings from Trine, Saint Francis and Huntington universities, Ivy Tech and Fort Wayne Community Schools in two leased buildings on the Parkview Hospital Randallia campus, were announced in 2011. Trine and Huntington both have launched programs in the former Fort Wayne Cardiology building; but after it purchased three downtown Fort Wayne buildings, Saint Francis decided last year to put its nursing doctoral

degree program on hold in order to focus on the development of that campus. One of the big differences between Ivy Tech and other consortium members is that it planned to relocate existing programs, not launch new ones, Mosier noted. That’s where the plan began to fall apart. Initially, Ivy Tech identified three health-sciences programs that it might move. But that would have created a hardship for students because the move wouldn’t have included the general-education courses they would have needed. “We’d just be moving those programs away from the other resources we offer on campus,” Mosier said. Moving all its health sciences and nursing programs, and all that goes with them, also was considered. “Really, coming back and doing some further analysis, we said if we are going to do this we need to move everything lock stock and barrel,” she said. The school concluded that because it would be relocating 2,000 students, leasing did not make sense. “We needed to own that building rather than lease it,” Mosier said, “which means we’ve got a significant amount of resources to raise in order to refit that building

Parkview Physicians Group’s Walk-n-Learn outings continue The Parkview Physicians Group has launched a new walking program, MD & Me: Walk-n-Learn. More than 70 members of the community helped kick off the first of a series of six opportunities to listen to a physician presentation on healthrelated topics and then join the physician on a walk at the YMCA outdoor trail, near Salomon Farm Park. “It’s important for people to be able to connect with physicians who can help guide them

in making the right choices for healthier lifestyles,” said Dr. Mitch Stucky, the president of Parkview Physicians Group. “Our program offers a unique way to both learn and engage in an enjoyable activity.” Future events are scheduled for: Tuesday, July 9: Dr. Raymond Dusman, “Know Your Numbers: Reduce Your Risk for Heart Disease.” Tuesday, Aug. 13: Dr. Michele Helfgott, “Gut Health.”

Tuesday, Sept. 10: Dr. Robert Godley, “Hypertension: What Do the Numbers Mean?” Tuesday, Oct. 8: Dr. James Edlund, “Colon Health.” To register for a walk, call (855) 637-0010 or email mdandme@parkview.com. During the first walk, community members were invited to ask questions specific to the topic from the presentation. Free blood pressure screenings and education materials were also provided.

into an educational institution instead of a physicians’ medical building. In order to provide the cost that Parkview really needed, to regain some of the resources that they had invested, that ended up being close to $15 million.” Utilities would have added another $700,000 a year to the costs at Randallia. And even though Ivy Tech expected it would see an increase in enrollment as a result of the move, it would not have been enough to cover the additional operating expenditures, Mosier said. “I firmly was committed to the consortium, in working collaboratively to move it forward,” Mosier reflected. “Each one of the members of the consortium, because we are our own individual entities, had our unique things that we brought. Ours happened to be 2,000 students.” Ivy Tech still considers itself a member of the consortium, but it has the space it needs to offer health-sciences and nursing training on its Coliseum Boulevard campus, so that’s where the programs will stay, she said. That also means the dual-credit, allied-health programs FWCS expected to offer in conjunction with Ivy Tech will not move to Randallia, either.

Mitchell, who joined KPC in December, will have additional responsibilities in the management of the production departments of KPC. “Rick’s many years of experience in manufacturing make him well suited for these additional duties,” Housholder said.

Rotary Club of Fort Wayne adds flexible membership The Rotary Club of Fort Wayne has entered a new phase in the club’s nearly 100-year history by welcoming its first corporate member, Indiana Stamp Co. Inc./Signs Now Division of Indiana Stamp. The corporate membership category expands opportunities for businesses and organizations. “We realize that many business leaders today simply do not have the time to attend weekly Rotary meetings and participate in our service projects, although many leaders truly want to do so,” said David Borgen, club president. “Having a corporate membership category means the membership is held by the corporation and not the individual, with the corporation assigning three senior leaders of its company to share membership duties and attend weekly meetings.” Tom Beaver, the CEO of Indiana Stamp/Signs Now, recognized these advantages and a few more. “I am a longtime Rotary member and deeply support the club’s activities and services but do not always have the time I’d like to support them,” Beaver said. “I saw the

new corporate membership category as a way to share the Rotary values of service leadership with our younger leaders.” The three Rotary representatives from Indiana Stamp/Signs Now are Beaver; Sarah Chesebrough, the director of marketing and communications for the Indiana Stamp Companies; and Shannon Morgan, the director of sales for the Signs Now Division of Indiana Stamp Co. “We hope to attract many corporate members to the Rotary Club of Fort Wayne,” said Borgen, the Rotary Club president. “In this way, we make membership more flexible and accessible to local leaders who want to make significant contributions to their community and to the global projects of Rotary International.” The Rotary Club of Fort Wayne was funded in 1915. The club meets at noon each Monday on the second floor of Parkview Field. For details oft the Rotary Club’s corporate membership opportunities, contact club Secretary Jane Wilks at fwrotarysecretary@gmail.com, 267-6540.

Teen council is vehicle for community service By Garth Snow gsnow@kpcnews.net

Mayor Tom Henry has invited Fort Wayne high school students to apply for the 25 seats on the Mayor’s Youth Engagement Council for the 2013-14 school year. The deadline to apply is June 15. Hanita Epstein says shes has learned about leadership and has Epstein learned about Fort Wayne during her two years on the council. The 2013 Homestead High School graduate served as president of the council this past school year. Epstein also served on the council during her junior year. “I definitely learned how to work with every different person, how to work as a team,” Epstein said. “And being president, I learned what works best to lead among peers.” “Being on this council, I’ve really learned a lot about my community, and I’ve become attached to this project, and I’ve become really passionate about helping Fort Wayne

become a really close-knit community.” As president, she helped organize and publicize two events this spring. The evening of May 25, the third annual Fort Wayne’s Almost Famous Talent Show filled the 900 block of Calhoun Street. On April 27, the teens presented an art show showcasing the works of local high school artists at the Rialto Theater, 2614 S. Calhoun St. The teens had chosen to support the historic Rialto, which is supported by the faithbased The Reclamation Project. In a news release, Henry said the council is an opportunity to get involved in the community and to learn more about city government. The council’s 25 student members work to develop and to implement servicelearning initiatives. Since it was started in 2010, the group has looked for ways to engage their peers, volunteered at community events and learned about local non-profit organizations and businesses. “The Youth Engagement Council provides a great forum for current or future leaders to get involved in their city, make known their ideas and work on

civic issues,” Henry said. “We are committed to our young people and want our city to be a place where young talent can blossom. Involving them in local government is one way we can do that.” Applicants must be city residents entering their sophomore, junior, or senior year in public, private or home schools. Students selected for inperson interviews will be contacted in July. Students are selected based on the strength of their application, which includes short answer questions and which requires two references. Final selections of council members will be made this summer. Youth council members will be asked to make a 12-month commitment. Monthly meetings start in August and will begin at 5:30 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month. Epstein said the mayor’s youth program is an important way to bring the city together and discover the talent within the city. Because she is graduating high school, Epstein is not eligible for a third year on the council. This fall, Epstein plans to attend Washington University in St. Louis.

Arcola stages 3-day pull to benefit fire department By Garth Snow

All the details

gsnow@kpcnews.net

Organizers say the Arcola National Truck & Tractor Pull wouldn’t happen without a host of helpers. “It’s run by the people of the community,” said committee Treasurer Jim VanEvery. “If they didn’t volunteer, we couldn’t have it.” Individuals and organizations pull together to support the pull, which VanEvery said is the biggest annual fundraiser for the Arcola Volunteer Fire Department. Firefighters Matt Butts and Dave Branning serve as committee cochairmen. Lin Wilson volunteers as secretary. In an interview, they estimated that 300 people support the pull. This year, the three-day run is June 27-29. The Knights of Columbus from St. Patrick’s Church handle parking. The Lions Club cleans up the track and grounds. Arcola United Methodist Church cooks a Saturday breakfast for pullers and volunteers. A Shriners unit — the Antique Power Club — provides and operates the tow-back tractors for the pull, and Shriner John Brandon works separately to head up the committee

A tractor revs up for the 2012 Arcola tractor pull. The pull draws about 10,000 people each year. that mows Branning Park. The Arcola Volunteer Fire Department serves all of Lake Township. VanEvery and Branning said the population of the fire district has begun to increase. Branning said the 20 members of the department answer 12 to 15 calls a month. Butts said the four fire trucks and one rescue vehicle respond to many accidents. “We have both U.S. 33 and U.S. 30 in our area,” he said. The township budget would feel a hit without the proceeds from the annual pull, VanEvery said. “If it weren’t for this,

the trustee would have to come up with a lot more money,” he said. “So it would probably increase people’s taxes out here a little bit. This is the single biggest source of income, at least in a good year.” Butts said the pull grew from the Arcola Days in the early ’50s, when farmers drove stock tractors. “As the years went by, everybody wanted more horsepower, and it evolved into the modifieds,” he said. The pull was born on the grounds of the former Arcola High School, and moved to Branning Park in 1978. The bleachers have a seating capacity of

3,400. VanEvery estimated the attendance at 8,000 to 10,000 over the three-day event. “And it could be better than that if the weather’s extremely good,” he said. Spectators and competitors attend from a multistate area. Past entrants have hailed from Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Maine and New York, and the Hoosier State. “They will come in in a semi. You can compare it to one of those NASCAR semis,” VanEvery said. “They can live in it. They’re not in the sport for the money.”

Sausage burgers are the event’s best known food attraction. Wilson said she will enjoy the curly fries, or “the elephant ears if it’s not overcrowded.” “But the sausage can’t be beat,” said Wilson. A beer tent also serves visitors. Committee members said they welcome the chance to serve their community. Wilson said she bought a house in the township in 2002, and helped to secure a FEMA grant for the fire department in 2005. She stayed on board as a member of the committee, which she described as “a good way to volunteer and

He said a house fire helped him embrace the opportunity to repay the fire department. “I mean they helped me when we had that house fire,” he said. “And so I came over and I did what I could to help, and I wasn’t smart enough to say no, and I got to be treasurer.” He said he has been involved with the committee since about 2006. “I used to help cook the sausage,” he said. “That was a job that was a lot easier.”

Allen County Fair just weeks away By Garth Snow gsnow@kpcnews.net

The familiar attractions that fill the fairgrounds stands sometimes become too familiar, according to Jerry Hammond. The veteran of more than 20 years on the Allen County Fair Board is in charge of the entertainment events at the fair, which will fill the fairgrounds July 23-28. Hammond and fellow volunteers have a solution. “We have some new events,” said Hammond. “Sometimes stuff gets stale; it’s been around and you’re not drawing the crowd anymore. And sometimes you feel that it’s too costly for your budget. So you have to try

something else.” “You’re always trying something different, if possible, to draw the people,” he said. For 2013, new events include a Tuesday evening monster truck show, a Wednesday evening pig wrestling contest, a Thursday evening balloon glow, and Sunday afternoon demolition race and demolition hockey. Popular, returning events include the Thursday evening Redneck Relays and rickshaw race, a Friday night truck pull, and the Saturday demolition derby. “That’s one of our biggest crowds,” Hammond said. Most grandstand ends are pay events. For details

on the grandstand schedule and admission fees, visit allencountyfairgroundsin.com. Fairgrounds admission is $5. Hammond is a fair cochairman, along with Dan Mudrack. Hammond also is president of the separate Allen County Fairgrounds board. A consultant, David Marquart, understands the challenges that face events such as county fairs. The owner of Coliseum Productions Inc. said he has put on more than 3,000 events over 28 years in the United States and Canada. A graduate of South Side High School and a resident of Fishers, Marquart has signed on to help expand the fair, which returns July 23-28. He will help the volunteer board of “incredibly hard-working individuals” with advertising, sponsorship sales, and vendor and exhibit sales, and will provide consulting. “And this year they’re

really trying to give it a face-lift and they’re bringing in monster truck events and demolition derbies, and there’s a hot air balloon glow and ride,” Marquart said. “They’ve really stepped with up some nice bands that have free entertainment every night. There’s an ice cream social one night and it’s free. There are a whole lot of things going on to get more people to come out there to make money to maintain the event.” Making money is essential, he said, because the Allen County Fair receives no support from the county. “Most county fairs are free to go to, and this one can’t be because they have to make money,” he said. “I mean it’s just five bucks.” He said income has to meet the expenses, set up the next year’s fair, and maintain the grounds yearround. “When the 4-H or any not-for-profit agency wants to have an event,

4-H’ers will show sheep and other livestock and a host of other projects at the 2013 Allen County Fair, which opens July 23. the fair likes to host it for free, but they need to make money off the fair,” he said. Marquart has worked with the Indiana, Ohio, Illinois and Kentucky state fairs, and Indiana’s Hunt-

ington, Whitley and Kosciusko county fairs. “I’ve worked on fairs literally for 20 years from the operational, set-it-up point of view,” he said. See FAIR, Page A17

Fair queen pageant deadline at hand By Garth Snow gsnow@kpcnews.net

Michelle Love says the Miss Allen County Pageant serves as a starter pageant for many girls. Love, a former Allen County Fair queen and a third runner-up in the state pageant, is serving as pageant director for the fifth year. “For most, this is their first pageant,” Love said. “It’s a great learning experience for them.” “The one thing that I hear is that it really helps to build their self-confidence, because this might be their first time on stage or being interviewed. It

I worried about dad living alone... Where dad didn’t enjoy cooking for just one and sometimes skipped meals. I was concerned about him falling and not being able to reach the phone. I tried to keep in close contact, but with work and family, I felt like I was failing him. We were both afraid he would lose his independence with a move to a retirement community.

Then we found Georgetowne Place. Everything dad needs is right there. For us it is the ideal situation; independence and peace of mind... for the both of us. Call now and schedule your personal tour today. New friends are waiting!

makes us feel really good to know that we can help girls build these skills.” Tayler Cummings was entering her sophomore year at IPFW when she won the 2012 pageant. The Carroll High School graduate was competing for the third time. “My mom was into beauty pageants, and I started off when I was 16, so I was definitely one of the younger ones in the group,” she said. “I was just testing out the waters to see if I liked it, and I did. It was so much fun.” Cummings was second runner-up her second year in 2011, before winning in 2012. “So persistence

pays,” she said. She enjoyed presiding over fair events. “There was something every day,” said. “A greased watermelon contest. A pizza eating contest. I helped out with karaoke. I got to announce the demolition derby and start it off.” “There is so much to learn from just being in the pageant,” she said. “You don’t have to place your first year. It’s the whole perspective behind it, and you’re wanting to represent where you live. I’m a huge advocate of volunteering. So this was definitely right up my alley in volunteering.” As the pageant winner, she helped at promotions and other events. Her volunteer service included Camp WatchaWanna-Do, which serves children who are battling cancer. ”It allows them to just go out and be kids,” she said. “Maybe they’ve been in the hospital and couldn’t do community events.” Cummings’ volunteer record also include the 2012 Fort Wayne downtown cleanup, a walk against autism, the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign, and a walk against breast cancer. Cummings said the state fair pageant was another level of competition. “I wouldn’t say it was overwhelming, but I’ll say it was an experience,” said Cummings, who described herself as “more of a hometown, down-to-earth kind of girl.” Cummings is approaching her junior See QUEEN, Page A17

“You stay ahead of the curve and keep the public interested,” he said.

Hammond said. “We’re going to try another form of a demolition derby. This is just around the track. There are rules, but it’s more or less anythinggoes. There are some bumps, but it’s demolition derby form, so it’s a little more bumping than NASCAR. If somebody wants the lead and takes you out, that’s what it’s all

about. It’s basically a fight to the finish.” “And then there’s demolition hockey,” Hammond said. “Some refer to it as hockey, some refer to it as football. You put an object, like a car or a huge earth mover tire, in the center of the ring. There are two cars and they try to move that object over a specific goal line, and the

one with the most goals wins. He also explained the Redneck Relays. “You get three people and they have to bring their own pickup truck and they load like 25 bales of straw on it and then go through an obstacle course, and the ones who can do it the fastest are the winners.” Other fair events

include karaoke contests, a strong man contest, a mechanical bull, smash-acar and a classic car cruise. The carnival fills the midway daily. Marquart said he attended the fair while growing up in Fort Wayne, but did not participate in 4-H. He became involved in event management as an employee of a

Fort Wayne productions company, and later formed his own company. Today, he manages the Outdoor Sports, Lake & Cabin Show, which returns to the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum on Jan. 24-26, 2014. He also is launching the Kitchen and Bath Home Design Show, which will debut Oct. 1820 at the Coliseum.

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been 3 years.

4 major remodels, 2 more doctors, NEW TECHNOLOGY and thousands of patients! HealthSource has had a busy 3 years! Ft. Wayne, IN

“I work with doctors all over the country and I can tell you that Dr. Nagel’s approach to care is truly revolutionary!” Dr. Damon Walton

Dear Friend; How time flies. May 2010, my wife and I decided to open a Wellness Chiropractic practice in Fort Wayne. We grew so fast we had to begin building a team and within 10 months the first of four office expansions. That same year we brought on a second doctor, Dr. Josh Bell, and did the remaining construction. January of this year we hired a third doctor, Dr. Ian McIntosh, and we are having a blast. Having Dr. McIntosh has increased our ability and capacity to serve more people in our community. WE ALSO HAVE NEW TECHNOLOGY. For over 100 years chiropractors have had difficulty showing patients what they see and feel. We are now able to do non-invasive testing to show you the health of your spine and nervous system. With new talent, technologies, techniques and equipment we are able to do corrective care at a level that was never done before! We are able to do predictably reshape the spine .

Money Back Guarantee!! If you don’t think this exam has been the most comprehensive assessment of your health condition EVER, I will gladly refund your $30 and give you an additional $40 for your time. That is how confident I am. “My child had chronic earaches and was on antibiotics multiple times per year and had 3 surgeries to have tubes put in. I was told for months to take him to HealthSource and I wish I had earlier. He hasn’t had any ear infections since starting care more than a year ago.” S.A. “HealthSource sets high standards in their practice. I like their over-all approach to health care.” George M. “HealthSource goes beyond traditional chiropractic and addresses total body health.” Ann H. “Four years I tried everything to get rid of migraine headaches with no success. My friend referred me to Dr. Nagel and my headaches have been gone since starting Care..” S.H.

Call 260-444-2080 and ask for Lisa. Our phone is ringing nonstop with great people just like yourself trying to get in, so, if you don’t get through the first time, please try again. This is not a typo!! You get my $220 exam (THE WHOLE THING!) for JUST $30. No gimmicks or tricks. We want to introduce Dr. Ian McIntosh Give the opportunity to be examined for $30, a savings of more than $200. HealthSource is located at: 918 Woodland Plaza Suite B. • Ft. Wayne, IN 46825
