Huntertown shops plan block party Work to begin soon on 40-acre project at Dupont, Diebold

By Garth Snow

Lima-Plank Mercantile Mall shops are combining for a Saturday, Oct. 19, block party to benefit Huntertown Park. Minnie Webb, who owns Classic Cuts Salon, said the event will include food, a silent auction and other festivities. Stores will begin special activities at noon, dinner will be available at 4 p.m., and entertainment will begin at 6 p.m. The mall, also known as Huntertown Mall, is at the intersection of Lima Road and Indiana 3. “I’ve had a salon here for 21 years in October and we were going to have a re-grand opening,” Webb said. “And then we decided to involve all the merchants and make this into a block party.” “We just got done remodeling, and it just kind of snowballed from there,” Webb said after a merchants meeting. Dan Holmes, who leads the nonprofit organization developing the park, said

Kenya again beckons agent of local church Jen Foster of Fort Wayne recently returned to Africa as an international advocate for Kenya Simba Scholars and Creative Women of the World. Foster will be in Kenya for about five or six months. It is her third trip, she said, but not her last. Foster works with the Mwangatu Women, which said she translates as “light of hope.” She is not teaching the women to make jewelry or to crochet. “These women have the skills already,” she said. “But what we’re teaching them is how to turn all these skills into something that’s going to empower you to make your own money and to build yourself up financially so you don’t have to rely on other people

around you to give you money. “Because that dis-empowers you. When you give somebody money without accountability, that dis-empowers somebody.” Foster spent the summer networking from Saint Joseph United Methodist

she said. “I was working as an audio engineer in Virginia. I was feeling like I wanted to do something different with my life but I wasn’t sure what. So one day I woke up and I bought a plane ticket to Kenya, and it was just one of those things that had a pull on my heart, so I

Developers are expected to begin work on a shopping plaza on the southeast corner of Diebold and Dupont roads by early October. Don Steininger said the first phase of the work on Dupont Corner will not involve buildings. “We will start demolition of the trees Steininger in the next two weeks,” Steininger said Sept. 19, just days after the plans were approved by the Allen County Commissioners. The project first received the review of the Plan Commission. Steininger filed the paperwork in late June. During the fall phase

of work, crews will place utilities, retention ponds, streetlighting and landscaping. Steininger continues to work to attract an anchor store. “By next spring or early summer we’ll see where the interest is and whether they want to build on their own or they want us to build it for them,” he said. “Once we start it’s going to take shape in a hurry, because we’re going to put a lot of equipment there,” he said. Steininger said plans call for the main entrance on Diebold, but he still hopes for approval for a major entrance on Dupont. Steininger’s other local projects include Chapel Ridge, off Maysville Road. “This will not be that big, because it’s not that big a piece of ground,” he said. Chapel Ridge is 72 acres, See PROJECT, Page A5

Leo Jr./Sr. High earns Gold Star for counseling Leo Jr./Sr. High School has been selected one of 10 Indiana schools to receive the Indiana Gold Star School Counseling Award in 2013. The Indiana Department of Education made the selection. A group from Leo will accept the award Nov. 15 at the Indiana School Counselor Association fall conference at Marriott East in Indianapolis. Gold Star schools create community advisory groups that review student data, set student goals, and work to allow counselors to make the best use of their time and skills. Schools participate in a one-day workshop and a series of monthly webcasts. “I think as counselors our jobs are much different now,” said Leo guidance counselor Christi Smeltzley. “Certainly we do counseling — that’s a piece of it — and college preparation. We do a lot of data analysis. We take that data and we do what’s right and what’s best. I

think our job has evolved a lot in the past few years.” In a news release, the Department of Education said Gold Star Schools counselors work to to ensure student success. “We recognize Leo Jr./ Sr. High School for understanding the tremendous impact that school counselors can have in helping students succeed in school and also to plan for postsecondary success,” said Amanda Culhan, a school

counselor consultant for the Department of Education. Smeltzley said Leo created an advisory committee within the school and another committee in the community to review Leo’s goals. The recent recognition is important for several reasons, according to Smeltzley. “I think it’s important for our kids and the community to know that we’re trying to give the very best that we

have,” she said. “We’re trying to do everything the right way, and obviously put kids first. And that’s what this has helped us to do, is align everything to put kids first.” Leo was the only school in the Fort Wayne area to receive the award in 2013. Since the award was created in 1997, 175 Indiana elementary, middle and high schools have earned the Gold Star Award. Woodlan Jr./Sr. High School received the award in 2012. Gold Star schools also are eligible to receive the American School Counselor Association’s Recognized ASCA Model Program, or RAMP Award. In June, nine Indiana schools received the RAMP Award for the first or second time. Indiana has 114 Ramp Award recipients, the highest number for any state. To qualify for both awards, Leo submitted an online portfolio with documentation that it meets the nine program standards found in Indiana’s Program Standards for School Counseling. Leo staff members Molly Baumert, Cary Cogdell, Gary Rogers, Assistant Principal Jody Smith and Smeltzley participated in training sessions during the 2012-13 school year and learned how to implement the Gold Star School Counseling model. “The school counselors and others at Leo Jr./ Sr. High School have worked hard to ensure that students have an accountable school counseling program that meets their academic, career and citizenship development needs,” said Sue Reynolds, the executive director of the Indiana Student Achievement Institute.

opportunity to work with children in Africa. “Russ told me I’d be a good missionary,” she said. “And I thought ‘maybe later, I need to make money.’” So, Foster said, she went back to making money. She followed her career to Washington, D.C., and then back to Fort Wayne before committing to the Kenya mission. “It just came at a time in my life when I was kind of done with the whole audio scene and it was kind of killing my spirit a little bit and I was looking for

more,” she said. “And I thought this would be really cool if I could make it happen somehow.” “And there were a lot of fears that I had to face,” she said. “I have to raise about $40,000 to $60,000 a year to do this. I’m not employed by any one organization. And then the public speaking part of it was really a fear of mine. And it all settled on me and I said, ‘I’m gonna do it.’ I started fundraising. I felt the fire in myself, and I felt my spirit reviving, and within three or four months I had the money raised that I needed to go, and it all happened so

smoothly.” So this summer, Foster spoke in public and met with smaller groups in homes. In that more intimate setting, she said, people open up and ask more questions. She caught a flight to Kenya on Sept. 5. The school is a ministry of Saint Joseph UMC. Foster will help the school with accounting. She also will explore the next steps for students in the primary school program. “We don’t just want to drop them off once they’re through the eighth grade,” she said, “but we’re getting to the point that kids are reaching eighth grade. We could ask for more money — which would about double the cost — or we could feed them into another program that already has secondary education.” Working with the Mwangatu Women, Foster will continue the business training that she introduced last November. “We’re continuing to build relationships and just mentor the women,” she said. “We’re looking at a brick-and-mortar place for them to set up their business. Right now they’re just in a community place. We want to do things that will continue to help them grow their business.” The women sell their goods through Creative Women of the World, which maintains a fair trade shop at 125 W. Wayne St. The organization works with women in about 30 countries, Foster said. “The Mwangatu Women create purses made out of recycled plastic bags and candy wrappers, and they create jewelry made out of cow bone pieces,”

Jen Foster of Fort Wayne works with Kenya Simba Scholars, a ministry of St. Joseph United Methodist Church. Foster has returned to Kenya after spending the summer in Fort Wayne.

Foster said. “There’s a little bone factory that collects the bones from the butcher and they shave it into these pieces and they decorate them.” Foster’s contact person is Grace, with whom Foster became acquainted during her first Kenya trip in 2008. “We build people up and empower them,” Foster said. “We build relationships. We’re not going there and just handing out things and saying ‘see you later, have a good day, use it to the best of your knowledge.’ It’s not an us and them relationship, it’s a we relationship, so we are all in this together, we are all building each other up and learning from each other.” Foster is about one year into a three-year commitment to the ministry. “It has been amazing and I have learned so much,” she said. “And I’ve come out of a rut that I was in because I was at a place where I just didn’t feel like I was doing a whole lot for society, I didn’t know what my purpose was.” “But I also will say that there have been really hard times,” Foster continued. “And to be a missionary, or an international advocate, it’s not easy. And

there are times when you just feel completely overwhelmed by the needs of the world and you’re trying to be compassionate but also be compassionate to yourself as well as to other people, so it does take a huge toll on you.” “So three years is a large chunk of time,” she said. “It was just where I felt like I was being led at this particular point in my life. Once that’s over I’m not saying that I’ll just quit connecting with Kenya. I don’t see myself being able to do that at all. But once my commitment is over, I may choose to do something here and head there once every couple of years.” Foster shares news of her ministry and her appreciation for the people of Kenya online, at internationaladvocate. Her Aug. 28 entry is entitled “To Kenya with love,” and begins “So here I go again …” Kenya Simba Scholars is a ministry of Saint Joseph UMC, Fort Wayne.

PROJECT from Page A1 he said; the new project will cover 40 acres. Steininger, who has been behind a number of retail, office and other developments in and around Fort Wayne, is partnering on the project with Skip Johnston, who owns trailer parks that sit on part of the land and an adjacent parcel that contains self-storage units. With the housing market strengthening and retail space in the Dupont Road corridor in short supply, new development there was inevitable, Steininger said. “As we looked at this, we knew there was going to be a shopping center out there, and we thought we should get in position and get there first,” Steininger said. Dupont Corner will sit just outside the Fort Wayne city limits. It will be developed in

two phases. The land sits diagonally opposite the new Manchester University College of Pharmacy. The presence of Parkview Regional Medical Center and Dupont Hospital and their associated medical office buildings nearby, the proximity of the Interstate 69 and Dupont Road interchange, construction of a new interchange at I-69 and Union Chapel Road and plentiful housing all make the area desirable for retail uses. The first phase will consist of the development of outlots along the Dupont and Diebold road frontage. Steininger has had some discussions with potential tenants, including restaurants, banks and others. “I definitely think that area needs a high-end restaurant, something like a Baker Street or an Eddie

Merlot’s,” he said. There also could be demand for a midlevel eatery, such as a Chili’s or an Applebee’s, he speculated. The second phase of the development would include the anchor, and there are basically three candidates: Target, Meijer and Walmart, Steininger said. “Target would be my first choice,” he said. The anchor would sit inside the L-shaped configuration of outlots, and a small strip built at a right angle to the anchor would contain additional tenants. Construction of the second phase would require removal of some of the mobile homes. — Linda Lipp of Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly and Garth Snow of Times Community Publications shared in the reporting and writing of this report.

The Gone to Pieces quilting group invites new members to join then each month at the Aboite Township Community Room, beside the trustee’s office at 11321 Aboite Center Road, west of Homestead Road. Quilters from across Allen County participate in the project, which supports charities throughout the area. For details, call club member Pansy Williams at (260) 459-0051. The group has been meeting in the same location for 15 years. The group usually meets the second and fourth Thursdays of the month. Club members create quilts, pillowcases and

clothing for various charities. Recipients have included cancer patients, veterans, and residents of Appalachia, China, Africa and Haiti. Club member Linda Wade said one of the most rewarding experiences was donating quilts to veterans through the Quilts of Valor project. “So see them go up to that table and go through the quilts and take yours, what a thrill,” she said. “Everybody brings ideas. Everybody brings a pattern,” Williams said. “We all have a stash at home of all kinds of fabric. We share colors, we share fabrics just to get all these quilts put together.”

Recycling luncheon highlights progress, goals By Garth Snow

Pub. Glaze spoke Aug. 28 at the 28th annual Excellence in Recycling awards luncheon, sponsored by the Allen County Solid Waste Management District. Glaze said when he and his wife, Melissa, bought the West Wayne Street pub, they were dismayed to learn that businesses had to put recyclables and trash into one container. “And we gasped at that; it really both-

Environmental sustainability advocate Scott Glaze urged Fort Wayne area leaders to expand recycling options for downtown businesses. Glaze, the chairman and CEO of Fort Wayne Metals Research Products Corp., also is an owner of JK O’Donnel’s Irish

The Allen County Solid Waste Management District honored winners of the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle for 2013. Institution category: 3Rivers Federal Credit Union, for recycling an estimated 300 tons of building materials during a construction project, and for ongoing recycling projects. Industry category: General Motors Assembly Plant, for a tradition of recycling, and for recovering 700 tons of waste water treatment sludge each year and using it as cement component. Nonprofit category: Goodwill Industries of Northeast Indiana, for accepting donations and keeping 600 tons of plastics, clothing and other materials out of landfills in 2012. Director’s Award: Mustard Seed Furniture Bank, for working with furniture stores to divert used items to the agency, for distributing material to clients or other charities, and for recycling. Sixteen companies received partnership awards for providing drop-off points for recycling batteries, fluorescent bulbs, tires and other materials. Eight companies received honor roll recognition for other service to the district’s mission. For details on the agency’s work, visit acwastewatcher. org.

ered us,” Glaze said. That’s when the downtown business got some assistance from Fort Wayne Metals, which already was practicing recycling and recovery at its 50-acre Ardmore Avenue site. “So we have had a truck from Fort Wayne Metals go down and pick up all the glass, all the aluminum, all the things we recycle from the pub, and take them back to our recycling facility at Fort Wayne Metals,” he said. That has meant hauling a great many glass bottles, he said. “Some of the government officials here, I would urge you, there needs to be space provided, there needs to be some kind of pickups for restaurants, especially downtown where space is limited, so that we don’t throw these into the waste stream,” he said. “There’s no reason to be throwing a lot of these things away. If you can help us to create methods of moving these things off-site, it would be very helpful. And JK’s isn’t the only restaurant that would take advantage of it.” Glaze said Fort Wayne Metals’ recycling imitative isn’t limited to industrial metals recovery. “It’s not just the wire, but it’s things that we take out of buildings when we’re rehabbing them — machines, leftover scrap metal. And some we

can sell, and some we have to pay to haul away, but we try to intelligently use all the scrap materials that we have and try to make sure that we effectively recycle them.” he said. Glaze is an investor in another Fort Wayne building, an 1890s structure at 821 S. Calhoun St. “We learned during rehab of that building that it was the original site of Lincoln Financial,” he said. “They were there in 1905 for about six months when they started operations. So it was really great to be able to save that building.” “We just finished the apartments and we have all four rented, at very good rates, and we will sign a contract this week with a restaurateur, and have a little bit of a restaurant there by the end of the year. “So it’s exciting for me to see an older building — and we did the same thing with JKs, with that building — to be able to take an old building, repurpose it, bring it back to life, and hopefully both of those buildings will still be going strong in another hundred years.” Glaze also detailed Fort Wayne Metals’ recycling policy, which kept 101,932 pounds of material out of the waste stream in 2011. The imitative began with recovering bits of metal, including silver, he said. “Everything else has flowed

from that mindset,” he said. He pointed to a slide from an overhead projector, showing a waste basket with separate sections for garbage and recycling. “Every desk, every station in our company, has a basket like this,” he said. “It’s amazing how little trash we generate.” In 2007, the company filled six garbage containers a week, he said. Today, business has more than doubled and the company needs only four containers a week. Shipments to the company’s largest customer, in Ireland, are sent in recyclable totes instead of in

cardboard boxes. That program will be expanded, he said. The Ardmore site features nature trails and native grasses to reduce storm water runoff. Employees have access to a community garden. Get Fresh Farms on that property supplies most of the restaurant’s vegetables, with some left over for a farmer’s market. Tony Burrus, the executive director of the Allen County Solid Waste Management District, said Glaze’s emphasis on sustainability mirrors the mission of the district and all other such districts across the state.

Sample New Haven invites guests By Garth Snow

Seven builders offer glimpse of homes By Linda Lipp

The New Haven Chamber of Commerce will pair the second Sample New Haven with the nearby Fort Wayne Home Builders Association Parade of Homes. The renamed Sample New Haven – Welcome Home Festival will be held from 2-6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, throughout downtown and at Schnelker Park, at the south end of Broadway. The Parade of Homes will be held Sept. 28-Oct. 6 at Bay Meadow at Landin Park, on Landin Road south of Maysville Road. “Sample New Haven is larger this year to take advantage of the Parade of Homes kicking off on the same day just a mile north of us,” said Chamber President/CEO Charlie Hatten. Hundreds of people are expected to follow the Parade of Homes, and Hatten said the chamber hopes to

encourage those people to visit downtown New Haven. “In the past we just had a Sample Downtown, but this year we’ve got a band and crafts and wine and beer tasting,” Hatten said. Highlights will include:

wine tasting, by Country Heritage Winery; craft beer tasting, by Cap n’ Cork; police canine unit demonstrations; a White Tiger Martial Arts demonstration; a scavenger hunt from 2-4 p.m., with the winner receiving a family

Australia, Tasmania tour to see former local pastor By Grace Housholder

KENDALLVILLE — At the request of Kendallville area residents, Edgerton’s Travel has created a special trip to Australia and Tasmania, a highlight of which will be time with the Rev. Paul Griebel, and his wife Cindy, in Tasmania. The Griebels served St. John Lutheran Church in Kendallville for many years. “Life is full of surprises,” the Rev. Griebel said. “And Hobart is one of them. It has a rich history, amazing scenery and lots of friendly, hospitable people. Join us for a worship service on Sunday, and stay for morning tea, where you can mingle and chat with ‘fair dinkum’ Tasmanians and enjoy the view out of our church windows.” Their entire ministry in the U.S. was at St. John in Kendallville. Cindy Griebel taught preschool at St. John part time from 1984 until 1993. At some point the job changed to

full-time. She then was the preschool director at the park department from 1994 until 2002. In August 2002 she became the second-grade teacher at St. John, a position she held until the end of the 2011-2012 school year, when she retired. Prior to coming to Kendallville, the Griebels served in Australia. “We enjoyed it there,” Cindy Griebel said about their years (September 1973 to early 1982) in Adelaide, South Australia, and then Frankston, Victoria, a suburb of Melbourne.

In 1982, because their parents were having some health challenges, they felt they needed to move back to the U.S. Time with the Griebels will be the initial highlight of the Australia trip that begins Wednesday, April 2, with flights from Chicago to Hobart, Tasmania, where the Griebels are serving St. Peters Lutheran Church for two years. Guests will stay at the Grand Chancellor Hobart Hotel. See TOUR, Page B3

This year’s Parade of Homes, sponsored by the Home Builders Association of Fort Wayne, is aimed at a little different buyer from many past events. The parade features the work of seven homebuilders in the Bay Meadow area of Landin Parke. Fort Waynearea builder parades often are staged in upscale subdivisions and feature homes in the $300,000 to $400,000 price range because that gives builders a chance to show off the best that they do. This year’s parade, from Sept. 28 through Oct. 6, is in a more moderately priced subdivision on the Fort Wayne-New Haven border. Homes are priced in the neighborhood of $200,000. “We wanted to show what we could do in the moderate price range,” said Charlie Giese of Westport Homes of Fort Wayne, the HBA’s president. The seven homes in the parade, including one

built by Westport, provide “good, usable space” and focus on the amenities that are most important to target buyers, Giese said. “We look at what buyers want, what buyers are asking for,” he said. Participating builders are: Westport, Delagrange Homes, Hickory Creek Homes, Slattery Builders, Timberlin Homes, Lancia Homes and Heller Homes. The floor plans include both ranch and two-story styles, with the size ranging from about 1,750 square feet to 2,250 square feet of living space. A few of the homes already have been sold, which is a big financial help to those builders, Giese noted. With seven homes — one more than the minimum the HBA usually requires to host a parade — the size of the show “is just about perfect,” he said. Although in recent years, the parades have generally been staged every other year, there already is a See HOMES, Page B3

Hatten said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a bunch of different businesses downtown that are bringing their food, from Carousel Ice Cream to Dominoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza, so its going to be really nice.â&#x20AC;? Mark Anderson said he deďŹ nitely will be among those food vendors. The owner of Andyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Knockout Chicken said he will defend his 2012 title as the customer favorite. His booth will offer pulled pork, chicken drumsticks, ribs, and his special recipe potatoes.


The farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; market at Schnelker Park features seasonal produce and local food products. Local restaurants also will offer food samples from 2-4 p.m. Sept. 28.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re magical and everybody that eats one of these potatoes is like they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy to participate,â&#x20AC;? Anderson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really good way for New Haven to


showcase its eateries.â&#x20AC;? Anderson said he expects the project to cost him about $400 worth

of food. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously we owe a little something to the community,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no better form of advertisement than somebody trying your food and liking it.â&#x20AC;? He stopped short of predicting a repeat victory, but said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to do everything I can to win again.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just think this makes New Haven shine,â&#x20AC;? said the lifetime resident of New Haven. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And they draw people from all over with this event.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just joined the chamber about ďŹ ve or six weeks ago, and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say enough about what they do to support all of us guys,â&#x20AC;? he said. The New Haven Kiwanis Club will support the nearby Parade of Homes in a different way, by helping to park cars. The clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2013 Kiwanian of the Year, Ollie Brueck, said sponsors will contribute to the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work.

HOMES from Page B1 developer in discussions to host a parade in 2014, Giese said. The local homebuilding industry is still a long way from the numbers of homes it was building each year before the ďŹ nancial crises of 2007 and 2008, but permit numbers are up this year by about 10 percent, Giese said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and the momentum and the trafďŹ c are greater than that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really exciting to see some growth and some excitement.â&#x20AC;? The parade homes also represent the work of a number of subcontractors and suppliers. Over the years, the HBA has tinkered with different methods to bring attention to those companies and their work. Some vendors have a presence in the homes, and some discreet signs are permitted to highlight their work. But the greatest vendor/subcontractor presence has always been in a special tent on the parade site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The problem is, most people just dash past that to get to the homes,â&#x20AC;? Giese acknowledged. This year, the HBA is partnering instead

with E&M Consulting to host a post-parade event, the New Home & Remodeling Show Oct. 12-13 at the Grand Wayne Convention Center. About 100 builders, suppliers, subcontractors and other vendors are expected to participate in the show, which also will offer speakers, workshops and activities for children. Tickets for the show are $9 at the door for adults and $7 for seniors, but coupons are being distributed widely to bring that cost down. Tickets for the parade itself are $10 at the gate, with a portion of the proceeds going to Habitat for Humanity of Fort Wayne. Habitat also is selling advance discount tickets for $8 at its ReStore, 3837 N. Wells St., through Sept. 27. A program with home-by-home details of the parade, coupons for $2 off parade admissions on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 only and a schedule for the trade show at the Grand Wayne Convention Center can be found on the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, hbafortwayne. com.

There is no admission charge. The event is an invitational and juried art fair. For details, visit More than 50 artists are expected to exhibit and sell their art. The event will feature live art demonstrations. Art by college and high school artists also will be on display, along with the works of Roanoke Elementary School students. Other highlights include children’s activities, entertainment and an assortment of food. A plein air paint-out on Saturday will allow artists to use natural light in capturing nature scenes. The public is welcome to watch the artists paint. Artists will sign in from 11 a.m.-noon Friday, Oct. 11, at the Crestwoods Frame Shop and Gallery, 314 N. Main St., or from 8-9 a.m. Saturday. Applications are available on the website. Registration and framing will be done at Crestwoods. Charles Shepard, the executive director of the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, will judge the work. Artwork will be on display and available for sale from 2-5 p.m. The fall farmers’ market on First Street will feature apples, soaps and other products. The food court will offer Joseph Decuis burgers and gumbo. The Roanoke Beautification Foundation will sell Nelson’s Chicken. Other vendors are invited, and may apply on the website.

Shops in Covington Plaza on West Jefferson Boulevard are combining for Art Hops from 5-8 p.m. the second Thursday night of each month. About eight shops took part in the first event Sept. 12. All shops in the plaza are invited to take part. “The idea is for people to stroll the plaza, like they do at our art fair,” said Sarah Keltsch, the owner of The Monogram Shoppe and more. Each participating shop has a local artist in their shop and serves refreshments. “It gives the artists a showcase for their talent,” Keltsch said. “We’re not charging them.” Artwork is offered for sale, and stores might

offer other specials. Keltsch remarked on the number of restaurants available in the plaza. “So you can stroll and see the artists and then go to dinner, or visa versa,” she said. Among the participating shops at the first event were Cakes, B Mitchell, Wine and Canvas, Merle Norman,

Symmetry, Olive Twist, Cindy Friend, and The Monogram Shoppe and more. Among the artists showing their works that night were Jan McMurtry Arnold, Vicki Junk-Wright, Amber Walker, Marcia Gabet and Sarah Thompson. Art included paintings and pottery.

“Thursday is a funny night; it’s not quite the weekend,” said Keltsch, adding that visitors have welcomed such projects elsewhere. “It can be a girlfriends night out, or it can be a couples night out,” Keltsch said. “All these are local shops, owned by local people,” she said.

Risen Savior fall festival to feature crafts, food Risen Savior Lutheran Church, 8010 W. Jefferson Blvd., will have its fall festival from 11:30 a.m.2:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 29. The public is invited. Admission is free. The festival will include a craft fair, face painting, balloons, Mark’s Ark Exotic Animal Show, Soarin’ Hawk Raptor Rescue, a moon-bounce, a bake sale, a hog roast, and

more. Craft vendors may reserve a table for free. Call the church at (260) 432-1214 or email office. Craft tables are free because the festival is not about money, said Mary Shuff, church council president. “We want everyone to come and enjoy the day,” Shuff said. “The church parishioners

donate all the food and we sell it at a minimal cost,” she said. “It’s really kind of an outreach. Come and have a good time, and don’t spent a lot of money.” Shuff said a parishioner has donated a hog for a hog roast again this year. Other food options include a baked potato bar and hot dogs. “Everything else is free,” Shuff said. “The only thing

That component of the festival is subject to the whims of the September weather. “We’ve had fairly good weather, sometimes chilly, but we’ve had it in October when it was 90,” she said. Risen Savior is a small

church, Shuff said, but the festival always has plenty of volunteers. “The church has a little cycle recycle shop, and people can donate bikes that they don’t want anymore, or they can bring bikes in for minor repairs,” Shuff said. The bike project will be open from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. The church recently donated 13 more bicycles to

FWA-to-Phoenix route restored By Doug LeDuc

Allegiant Travel Co. is using a jet with greater fuel efficiency and more seating capacity to reinstate scheduled service out of Fort Wayne International Airport to Phoenix this fall. The Las Vegas-based low-cost travel company will operate flights on a 156-seat A319 jet Thursdays and Sundays between FWA and Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport starting Oct. 30. The aircraft will have 26 more seats and 35 percent greater fuel efficiency than an MD-80 series jet the company used to operate the same

route five years ago. Following Atlanta and Dallas, Phoenix “was our third-highest (traveled) market out of our area when we did have service,” said Scott Hinderman, the Fort Wayne-Allen County Airport Authority’s executive director of airports, during an Aug. 20 news conference at the county’s courthouse green. “We’re very confident that this route will be successful.” In 2007, Allegiant held a contest, asking Fort Wayne-area residents to vote for whether the company should add a route to Phoenix or Fort Lauderdale, Fla., from

Fort Wayne International Airport. Phoenix narrowly won out, but Allegiant later that year added routes to both destinations. In the first half of 2008, the company ended air service to Fort Lauderdale and Phoenix. Allegiant has continued service it was offering at the time to Orlando/Sanford, Fla., and Tampa/St. Petersburg, Fla. Hinderman said the company had discontinued a number of longer routes that year based on the impact of a spike in jet fuel prices. “Since then, the price of fuel has become a little more stabilized,” he said.

In addition to hiring four new teachers, Concordia Lutheran High School has filled two staff positions for the 2013-14 school year. Dawn Schuller, left, joins the enrollment department where she serves as an admissions assistant. A Bloomington, Ind., native, Schuller earned her bachelor’s degree from Indiana University. Dawn Miller, right, has been hired as the advancement information manager. She is a 1983 graduate of CLHS, and studied at Ivy Tech Northeast.

Ivy Tech’s Kelty’s Kafe tests culinary talent By Garth Snow

The 1950s swept back into town on Sept. 11, thanks to Ivy Tech culinary arts classes. And from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. each Wednesday through Nov. 20, students will prepare meals for themes that range from Southern comfort foods to a Brazilian buffet, or What Do You Think About Them Apples? Themes vary each week. The public may partake at Kelty’s Kafe at the Ivy Tech Coliseum Campus, 3800 N. Anthony Blvd. But it all began with the Rock, Pop and Be-Bop Diner, featuring a Triple Decker Big Bopper Burger for $4, a Hot Rod Dog for $3, a Black Cow for $2.25, and a host of specialty sandwiches, sides and desserts. Imagine a ’50s drive-in restaurant complete with dancers from a local studio teaching how to do the Twist, the Mashed Potato, and the Watusi.

Professional Nail Care by Johnny & Tina

Instructor Meshele Wyneken said the lunches draw from both campuses, but also from Concordia High School, IPFW and surrounding businesses. “This class is an opportunity to get real-life experience while you’re still a student,” said Wyneken, who oversees the cafe. The cafe draws a curious crowd each Wednesday. The service might have to be offered two days a week in the spring term, she said, because of the rising enrollment. Chef Al Tholen instructs the classical cuisines class. Recently, each student introduced their dishes and explained how they prepared the courses. Tholen asked questions and offered reminders. “What did you learn today as you went through this procedure?” he asked. “There’s a term for that cut of vegetable. Bornais, that is correct,” he said. Wyneken said the classical cuisines class gives a solid foundation for other

styles. “There are some classic methods that have been around for years and years and other styles have branched off from that,” she said. “But everybody needs to learn these classical methods first before you can really develop into other styles of cooking.” Wyneken said the students come up with the themes and recipes for the cafe. “They have to price everything out,” she said in a news release. “They have to show where they made

a profit. They have to run everything from start to finish.” “I’m here to give them advice and guide them and keep them on track,” she said. The cafe takes its name from Robert Kelty, who was an instructor in the program for about 20 years, and became dean of public services at Ivy Tech. He died in August 2011. “That’s when we decided to designate that as a permanent name for

the cafe,” Wyneken said. Wyneken studied under Kelty, and knew him for 17 years. “His predominant area of expertise was baking and he loved to make candy. He also loved to eat candy,” she said. “And he taught me a lot about making candy and particularly truffles, deliciously wonderful truffles.” The public will get yet another chance to sample students’ cooking, at an Oct. 12 scholarships fundraiser. “Each year we send a group of usually about eight students to France to study,” Wyneken said. The destination might also be

Spain or Italy. “In order for them to be able to receive that opportunity, they have a competition where they get something referred to as a mystery basket. We give them meats and vegetables and starch and give them four and a half hours to prepare a meal for people. Then we have chefs from throughout the community and tell each student, whether they be culinary students or baking students, how they did.” This year’s scholarship fundraiser will have added meaning because it marks Ivy Tech Northeast’s 50th anniversary, Wyneken said.
