Winter guard wins third at state By Garth Snow email@example.com
The Homestead High School Winter Guard claimed the bronze medal in Open Class competition at the state ﬁnals March 22 at Center Grove High School in Greenwood. For nine Homestead seniors, the competition was the last of their high school career. “It hasn’t hit me yet that it’s all over,” said senior Megan Steinbacher. She wore the Homestead colors in the fall color guard for four years. She went with the band to the state ﬁnals four times. She was selected for the indoor winter guard all four years. She went with
the guard to the state ﬁnals four times. “It’s bittersweet,” she said. “It’s exciting, but we’ve had so many achievements, but I wish I could keep growing as a performer.” Jonathan Meader directs the winter guard. “This is the highest score that we’ve received in the ﬁve years that I’ve been here,” Meader said. Meader, who also directed the fall marching season color guard, selected the 28-member winter guard from the 64-member fall color guard. “This is the largest senior class that I’ve ever graduated,” said Meader, who will lose 19 seniors

About 47 percent of Allen County’s election precincts will vote in new locations on primary election day, May 6. Elections Director Beth Dlug said the changes are intended to direct voters to the nearest possible voting places. She said her ofﬁce offers help online and will notify voters by mail. If all else fails, voters may call (260) 449-7329. “We’re doing everything in our power to put the word out to check polling locations,” Dlug said. Allen County maintains 115 polling places and 675 voting machines. More than 1,200 election-day workers help to serve more than 250,000 voters. She said years of adjustments made it necessary to revamp voting assignments. “Generally the whole thing starts because

WINTER from Page A1 said. “Some are hoping to march in independent world class color guards. I hope some continue to perform.” The winter guard competes in the gymnasium instead of on the football ﬁeld. “We get to pick our own music,” Meader said. “It can be anything, but it’s recorded music. We compete inside high school gymnasiums and we pull out a designpainted ﬂoor tarp that covers the gym ﬂoor to whatever our liking is. It changes the environment of the gym, which is pretty cool.” Meader wrote the show. Jon Bay does the staging. Geoff Goelz and Meader do the choreography. Lin Daffron, Nancy Barber and David Veda also work with the winter guard. This year, the show was titled, “I’m Only Asking You To Do This Because

I Love You.” It featured the Lucy Wainwright Roche song “Call Your Girlfriend.” “The show was an exploration of the feeling of love and loss, how we deal with loving and losing someone and how we recover from those emotional states,” Meader explained. Meader, who also contributes to the Carroll High School drum line and Rhythm X percussion ensemble in Columbus,
Ohio, said he will be back at Homestead for a sixth year. “I really love Homestead,” he said. “I love the people I work for.” Homestead competed in the more advanced Open Class again. “We’ve been in Open Class as long as I’ve been here, and this is the third time that they’ve medaled in Open Class, and the second year in a row,” Meader said. “The other two groups that medaled are ranked in Open Class on the
national level,” he said. Ben Davis took the gold medal, Greenﬁeld-Central Varsity took the silver, and Homestead took the bronze in the ﬁeld of 11 schools. For more information, visit ihscga.org. The tone of the show was not lost on the performers. “This year was a lot different,” Steinbacher said. “In the past we always had an upbeat tempo. This was different. This year we did a lot more talking about love. This year we grew a lot as a group. It wasn’t a fake sad face. It was real. We were telling our own story.” Steinbacher continues to make her college plans. She wants to study aesthetics, and she hopes to pursue dance. “These girls are like my sisters,” she said. “We’ve spent so much time together that we’re more than friends; we’re like sisters.”

VOTERS from Page A1 because that voting location may not have room. So we may have to go two or three locations down in order to ﬁnd room for those people that are now displaced. “So after years of that patchwork, we have people going all over the place. So what we did last year is take all of our resources and reorganize the whole thing, so that we could get people to the closest locations that were possible.” “People don’t like a change in their polling place, and we’re aware of that,” Dlug said. “But on the other hand, things change. People move and sometimes we have to move in order to keep up with that.” Each voter can conﬁrm their polling place by visiting allencounty. us/election-board. By entering their information, a voter can ﬁnd a map of their voting boundaries and even directions to their polling place. “We did a pretty big, massive change of polling locations. We reorganized neighborhoods and precincts that are going to particular locations,” Dlug said. “So people deﬁnitely want to check.” Potential voters need to register by April 7. Registered voters who have moved need to record their new address by that same date. Even voters who move after the registration deadline may vote one last time at their old precinct. Late in April, Dlug’s ofﬁce will send a postcard and voting site
information to every household that has a registered voter. The elections website also contains sample ballots. This year, voters face choices for township trustee, township board, some school board seats, and some town, county and state ofﬁces, judicial positions, and U.S. representative. Voters will ﬁnd links to local political party websites at the Allen County election website. They will not, however, ﬁnd opinion on candidates or parties. “It’s very important to me. I can’t stress enough how we try to run a nonpartisan ofﬁce,” Dlug said. “We’ll help everyone and anyone with all of their questions. That’s what we’re here for — an accurate, fair and unbiased ofﬁce.” The elections ofﬁce also has moved since the last election, to 1 E. Main St., in the Rousseau Centre. The voter registration ofﬁce remains at 1 W. Superior St. Visit allencounty.us/community/voter-registration, or call (260) 449-7154. Dlug stepped into the elections position in early 2009. She had been a paralegal at the prosecutor’s ofﬁce, she had worked on political campaigns and was interested in the election process, and she had directed information technology for the prosecutor’s ofﬁce. Then the job became available. “It all kind of came together for me,” she said. The mission, Dlug said, is “an equal and fair opportunity to vote.”

Masonic Lodge applauds member’s 50-year mark Emory Bryan Jr.’s family and fellow members of Masonic Lodge 224, Leo, helped to celebrate Bryan’s Award of Gold, recognizing 50 years with the fraternal organization. Mark Genung, leader of the Indiana Grand Lodge, spoke at the March 5 ceremony, and asked Bryan’s wife, Martha, to pin the award on her husband’s lapel. Bryan is chaplain of Leo Lodge. He has served as worshipful master at Leo and at Southgate, where he received his Masonic apron and advanced to the degree of Master Mason on March 2, 1964. “The fraternity has been a blessing to me through the years, the opportunity to meet the brothers all over the

It is the emblem of innocence and the badge of a Mason.’ What a way to start your Masonic life! Dad, thank you. Thanks to the fraternity, and thanks to you guys.” Brian Hills, worshipful master of Lodge 224, said he moved to Indiana from Wisconsin, and Bryan made him feel welcome. “The degree work that he gave — the ceremonies that we go through — not only does it have heart in it, but it is just amazing,” Hills said. “Your voice, Brother Emory, still, it’s remarkable.” Genung reminded Masons and guests that true leadership is not accomplished with a gavel. “We should lead with brotherly love and friendship in everything we do, especially among brothers, but with all mankind,” he said. “We need to set an example not only of charity, but just being good men, good fellows, good family men.

Co-working space gives independent workers a home By Ryan Schnurr
You’ve probably seen these modern-day drifters, the ubiquitous writers/ designers/entrepreneurs populating coffee shops and other public spaces. Well it turns out there are more of them than you think, and they’re looking for places to call home. Enter the co-working space — and CoWork Fort Wayne. “You have kids at home and chores and laundry, and you get really sick of working at home,” said Dave Sanders, the president of software company Avenue 80 and self-described “wrangler” of CoWork Fort Wayne. “And a lot of guys who are serious about doing work … they’re not in coffee shops because it gets loud. It’s distracting.” This is where CoWork Fort Wayne comes in. The space, located on the ﬁfth ﬂoor of the Murphy Building at 809 S. Calhoun St., resembles a typical ofﬁce space in many ways. It consists of a large open area with available desks and chairs, a kitchen with refrigerator and coffee pot, and two shared conference rooms that anybody can access. Fort Wayne isn’t new to co-working spaces. As recently as last year a space called Founders
space, noting, “It’s a community space as much as a personal space.” But that’s the point. “Once you get smart people together, even if they aren’t working on the same things … things happen,” Sanders said. “It’s a snowball.” Those interested in learning more can ﬁnd them on Facebook and Twitter.

was located in the Randall Building downtown, but it closed its doors after encountering a number of issues, including a ﬁre in the building. Founders showed many area independent workers that collaboration could be valuable to their businesses, but when it closed many had to return to their homes or coffee shops. Several of the displaced workers, including Sanders, Brett Meyer and Chad Clabaugh, got together and decided to pool their resources and rent a shared ofﬁce space. While scouting around, they found that much of the available space downtown was cheap — so cheap that they could afford more space than they actually needed for themselves. “So that kind of got the ball rolling and we decided we’d do the bigger space and …
do some work.” But they aren’t going to be sticklers. “If you come in at 3 o’clock, we’re not going to make you pay seven bucks. Just a little something to contribute,” he
start to do it as a full co-working space instead of a bunch of guys getting an ofﬁce,” Sanders said. The business model works like this: All expenses are divided up among “core” members — those who are committed to ongoing support — who receive keys and their own dedicated spot in exchange. “If you’re a core member, it’s your ofﬁce, and you get your own space,” Sanders explained. But those who aren’t in a position to be a core member can be involved through a drop-in system. For $7 a day, anybody can come in between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. and take advantage of the Wi-Fi, coffee and conference rooms. Sanders said they made the decision to charge everybody “so that everybody puts a little bit of value into it and understands people are trying to

Financial Focus Turn Your Retirement “Vision” into Reality
Retirement can be an exciting, active time of your life. But if you’re going to get the full benefits from your retirement years — which could last two, or even three, decades — you’ll need to have a vision for what you want to do. And to transform this vision into reality, you’ll need to take a “holistic” approach — one that involves a financial strategy, clear communications with family members and an awareness of the challenges that may stand in your way. To articulate and achieve your vision, ask yourself a series of questions, such as the following: UÊ7 >ÌÊ`ÊÊÜ>ÌÊÌÊ`¶ When you retire, do you plan on
traveling around the world? Purchasing a vacation home? Pursuing your hobbies? Or maybe you’re even thinking of opening a small business. Clearly, you have many options — and you’ll need to be aware that some choices are going to be more costly than others. If you can identify how you want to spend your retirement years and then put a “price tag” on your goal — or at least come up with a pretty good estimate of how much money you’ll need each year — you can then create an appropriate investment strategy. Such a strategy will include both your need for }ÀÜÌ — during your pre-retirement and retirement
years — and your need for income, especially during your retirement years. Your investment strategy will also need to be based on your risk tolerance, family situation and time horizon — how many years you have until your retirement. UÊ7 >ÌÊºÀ>`LVÃ»Ê} ÌÊÊ iVÕÌiÀ¶ As you work to achieve your retirement vision, you may well encounter some “roadblocks” along the way. One significant roadblock is the amount of health care expenses you might face during retirement. Many people think Medicare will cover everything, but that’s not the case — in fact, you could easily spend a few thousand dollars each year, out
of pocket, for health care costs. And since these costs typically rise as you move further into retirement, you’ll need a reasonable portion of your assets to be allocated to investments with the potential for rising income. Even beyond normal health care costs, though, you’ll need to be aware that you could eventually need some type of long-term care, such as a stay in a nursing home or assistance from a home health aide. These costs can be enormous; to cope with them, you need to prepare well ahead of time, so you may want to consult with your financial advisor for possible solutions.

UÊÜÊV>ÊÊ«ÀÌiVÌÊÞÊv>Þ¶ Your retirement vision can’t just involve yourself, or even just yourself and your spouse. To fully enjoy your retirement years, you’ll want to know that you are helping to protect your grown children from financial and emotional burdens that could fall on them should you become incapacitated in some way. Among the steps you might consider taking is establishing a durable power of attorney, which allows you to appoint an agent to manage your financial affairs, make health care decisions or conduct other business for you during your incapacitation. Consult with your legal advisor about creating a durable power of attorney. You will find that having your retirement vision come to fruition can be a great feeling. So, do whatever it takes to make it happen. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.

The event will be held Friday, April 25, at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art.

Northeast Indiana Honor Flight veterans pose for a group photo during a visit to Washington, D.C., monuments.
HONOR from Page A1 anapolis Colts tickets, ďŹ‚ight lessons from Sweet Aviation, deluxe suites at hotels, and movie, restaurant and bowling gift certiďŹ cates. In the past, merchants also have donated items such as a chainsaw. A certiďŹ cate for a load of gravel for a driveway proved particularly popular, Meyers said. The money supports the overall northeast Indiana Honor Flight program. Honor Flights 12 and 13 are scheduled for April 30 and May 28. For details, or to apply as a veteran or as a guardian, visit hfnei.org. â€œThis little post here in Roanoke has given them $72,000 so far, over four years,â€? said Meyers, who also serves on the full northeast Indiana board. â€œThe ďŹ rst year we did our beneďŹ t they needed $10,000 to get the plane off the ground, and we happened to make $12,000 from the beneďŹ t. Weâ€™ve got a great bunch of people in this place.â€? Black estimated that 15 veterans from Huntington County have been part of the ďŹ‚ights. Deb Kindler knows the urgency of taking World War II veterans to see the
monuments. Her father, Raymond Coe, was a Navy pilot in the PaciďŹ c in World War II â€” â€œand he saw a lot.â€? â€œHe died in 1989, and a few years after he died I was helping my mom with her checking account and paying bills and things like that, and I saw she was donating money to build a World War II memorial,â€? Kindler said of her work with her mother, MaryJane, who now also is deceased. â€œAnd I said â€˜Mom, stop doing that. Why are you sending them money?â€™ And she said, â€˜Because I want to help build this memorial.â€™â€? Kindler said her father would not have admitted that he wanted to visit such a memorial. â€œI think the war affected him. He never talked about it,â€?
she said. â€œI wish the memorial had been there long ago, when my dad could have seen it, because they deserve it,â€? she said. Even though she could not accompany her father on the ďŹ‚ights, Kindler stepped forward to volunteer. Each traveling veteran has a full-time guardian. â€œIt entails being glued to him for the day, and you donâ€™t ever let him out of your sight,â€? she said. â€œYouâ€™re there to make sure they have a good time, that theyâ€™re taken care of.â€? Last May, Kindler accompanied Albert Stiles of Fort Wayne. Stiles was a veteran of the U.S. Army in World War II, and was a retired musician and the owner of Al Stiles Worldâ€™s Best Shoe Shine in his adopted

hope of Fort Wayne. Stiles died Jan. 2, 2014, at the age of 91. Meyers said each ďŹ‚ight carries about 140 people. They spend most of their time at the World War II Memorial, but also might see the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, or the Lincoln Memorial. Three tour
buses will carry the group to Arlington National Cemetery, where they will watch the changing of the guard. They also will visit the Air Force Memorial, for a noon meal. They also might visit the Womenâ€™s Military Memorial. Black, too, has served as a guardian. â€œI went on a ďŹ‚ight in 2011
with a gentleman from Huntington, and it was just the most memorable experience of my life,â€? she said. â€œItâ€™s up there in the top ďŹ ve days of my life.â€? â€œWhen you arrive, you have these men who are in a shell, and they donâ€™t want to talk about their experience. But by the end of the day you see them open up and shed some of the baggage that theyâ€™ve carried for these years,â€? she said. â€œAnd when you see them stand there at the World War II Memorial â€” and Iâ€™m getting choked up, because itâ€™s so amazing â€” they see that they are appreciated, and you know they are the greatest generation. â€œAnd by the time of the ďŹ‚ight home, those men are talking and sharing stories, and itâ€™s just like theyâ€™re kids again.â€? â€œWe make them feel as special as we possibly can,â€? she said.

Easter Seals adds nurse practitioner Easter Seals Arc of Northeast Indiana has hired a nurse practitioner, Kayla Bauman, to offer better access and coordination for its consumers. ESARC President and CEO Donna Elbrecht stated, â€œWe recognize the people we serve have complicated medical issues and often experience anxiety going to see a doctor. We know having Kayla on-site where our consumers are comfortable will improve their access for their health care needs.â€? Easter Seals ARC serves more than 1,000 people, and Elbrecht said the majority of these individuals rely on Medicaid for their health care. National and statewide data show this speciďŹ c population to have higher health care costs. Elbrecht hopes to have the people they serve improve their overall health with more preventive wellness plans. She also believes better coordination between their nurse practitioner and health care providers will over time improve overall health outcomes and costs.

Health fairs designed to detect risks early By Garth Snow
Dr. John F. Brensike, according to Marquardt. “He was a cardiologist, and he wanted people to be more aware of their cholesterol,” she said. Convenient, neighborhood screenings encouraged people “to get involved in their health, be active, and not let someone else be responsible for your health,” she said. Since 1981,the Fort Wayne health fairs have served more than 146,000 adults ages 18 to 100. Although she is coordinating the spring health fairs for adults, Marquardt already is busy scheduling student health fairs this fall. “We’re trying to get to the younger kids to have them start their health habits earlier,” she said. Student health fairs are offered for grades two and three, grades four and ﬁve, and middle school. Home-school instructors may make arrangement to bring their students to health fairs in the schools. With health fairs both spring and fall, Marquardt stays busy recruiting medical and nonmedical volunteers. Marquardt works for Focus on Health under the guidance of the nonproﬁt Midwest Alliance for Health Education. Parkview Health is a
Focus on Health
Focus on Health will offer free health checks at 12 venues in or near Fort Wayne, beginning April 11 at the University of Saint Francis. The goal is to catch health risks before they advance into major problems, according to Marita Marquardt, R.N., who has directed the area health fairs since 1992. Marquardt then worked for the Red Cross, which was an in-kind sponsor of the health fair. “So part of my hours were donated to Focus on Health,” she said. Marquardt now works through the nonproﬁt agency full time, coordinating health fairs for adults and students. “We have added a larger selection of lab testing and health checks,” Marquardt said in an email. “We have grown from being perceived as only a ‘senior’ clientele service and encourage people in their 20s and up to take interest in their health.’ Each health fair will offer free checks of: blood pressure, body mass index, visual acuity and bone density. Patients will receive summaries and referrals. Select locations will offer: hearing checks, oral cancer screenings,

foot screenings and skin screenings. Visitors need not register in advance, but will be taken on a ﬁrstcome, ﬁrst-served basis. There are no residency requirements for the health fairs. The Francine’s Friends mobile mammography van will be available at the University of Saint Francis health fair on April 11, and at a Huntertown health fair on May 2. For an appointment, call 483-1847.
For a fee, sites also will offer blood screenings. The blood chemistry test assesses glucose, liver function, kidney function, cholesterol and other factors. The fee is $33. Patients should fast for 12 hours before the test. Diabetics should not fast, but should stay on their regular therapy schedule. The hemogram blood test carries a lab fee of $8. Separate fees apply for: prostatic speciﬁc antigen for men, $20; thyroid stimulating hormone, $20;

ders — or they can ﬁnd out where the services are if they really need help,” she said. Marquardt said the screenings serve about 3,000 people each year. “Our numbers are down because we’re not the only one in town now,” she said. Focus on Health was a pioneer in health fairs and served as the catalyst for others, Marquardt said. The health fair concept was pioneered by
