Zoo’s stars keep low profile through winter The Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo’s yearly grocery list

By Garth Snow

A crust of ice covers the 20-inch layer of snow that blankets the grounds of the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo. The squirrels and Canada geese that own the grounds in the summer still scoff at the cages in February. The zoo gates are locked, the ticket booths dark. And 54 cars and trucks fill four rows of the parking lot. “There’s a lot going on,” the zoo education chief explains. “All the animals that we have are here all yearlong. So there are caretakers here all yearlong.” For the record, Cheryl Piropato said, that’s about 1,000 animals — “give or take a few” — of about 200 species. The animals stay at the zoo through the winter, but most take shelter indoors. To make that possible, 65 to 70 people work

Each year, the zoo spends more than $238,000 to feed the more than 1,000 animals in its care. Here’s a sampling of what the animals consume in a typical year:

through 12 months and four seasons. “That’s how many people it takes to take care of the animals,” said Piropato, whose formal title is education and communications director. “We have instructors out in the schools every day. We

have veterinarians doing physicals this time of the year.” In fact, two veterinarians and two veterinary assistants care for the birds and the beasts. “And they’re busy all the time, they cover things seven days a week,” she said.

occurred the night I was initiated. After I received light in Masonry for the first time, the worshipful master approached me from the East. Only it wasn’t the worshipful master, it was my dad, and he said, ‘My brother, I now present to you the lambskin of a white leather apron. 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, See LODGE, Page A2

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 United States, many of whom became really great friends,” Bryan

LODGE from Page A1 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. We’ve got

to put God first, then our families, then our vocation, and then hopefully in a well managed life we’ve got time for lodge and other interests.” Bryan served as worshipful master of Southgate Lodge in 1970, transferred to Leo Lodge in 2008, and held the gavel at Leo in 2012. He also serves the Masonic appendant bodies of Scottish Rite, Mizpah Shrine, Demolay, York Rite and Eastern Star.

excellent care for every animal for as long as it’s with us, for its entire life, and there aren’t just excellent places that we can ship animals to for six months out of the year and get them all back. So everything pretty much stays here.” The one exception is the ponies, which are owned by a contractor. “It’s a local family,” Piropato said. “They’ve run that ride for about 40 years. So they take the ponies out to their farm and bring them back in the spring.” Though most animals move inside, some animals are fine with the Indiana winters. “There are a few animals that are coldhardy and they’re outside all yearlong,” Piropato said. “Our red pandas, which are native to the Himalayan Mountains, they have no problem. The Eurasian eagle owls, which are a trans-arctic species, they’re doing fine outside.” Even those animals have shelter available. One of the endangered pandas warmed up to a heating pad on a particularly cold night. “The sea lions can tolerate cool temperatures and the water in the tank doesn’t freeze because it’s salt water and we keep it moving,” Piropato said. “There are pumps and waterfalls in there.

busy, busy place all year long.” “The penguins, believe it or not, are not coldblooded penguins,” she explained. “Some penguins are from temperate or even tropical areas. The penguins we have are from South Africa. The temperature there is not unlike that of Fort Wayne, but just a little bit milder, so they’re actually inside when it’s very cold out.” The zoo’s oldest citizen also takes shelter inside. Piropato qualified that statement. “The oldest is probably our female giant tortoise,” she said. “Her name is Purdue. I don’t think we have a specific age on her. She came into the zoo world quite a while ago.” “The animal that’s been here the longest is Edgar, our marabou stork, and he has been here since the African Velt first opened in 1976,” she said. “We have quite a few long-lived and long-term residents here at the zoo.” “We’re committed to providing care throughout the animal’s natural life,” Piropato said. “And as a result, in our zoo and zoos in general, there are a lot of animals you could call geriatric. Because we’ve kept them alive with great care, they move into old age and we have a lot of

geriatric conditions among our animals. Arthritis is probably the most common. And cataracts. So we continue to provide care, to keep the animal comfortable for as long as we possibly can. Sometimes the decision does come down to what really is our best option for this animal at this point in its life, and considering the quality of life. The only thing I can liken that to is like a pet owner, the way you would look at your dog or cat at the end of their life. That’s pretty much how we look at our zoo animals, because we’re emotionally invested in them. When you care for an animal and spend that much time with it over 10 or 15 or 20 years, you make those kinds of decisions very, very carefully and deliberately.” To ensure healthy species on a broader scale, Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo sometimes exchanges animals with other zoos. “There are about 220 zoos in North America that are accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, and we all participate in exchanges of animals, especially for breeding purposes for endangered species, so one of our goals is to maintain populations that are genetically healthy,”

Piropato said. “That is we would avoid inbreeding and those types of situations by exchanging animals among the zoos. Sometimes it’s a simple exchange between two zoos, and sometimes it’s a broader exchange, kind of like a domino effect, where maybe seven or eight institutions are involved. When we acquired our new orangutan Tara last year, I believe there were seven or eight zoos involved in shifting animals around from one zoo to another. It’s very, very complicated.” Careful record keeping feeds into an international data base, Zoo Information Management System. Each animal has a permanent record on file with ZIMS. Piropato does not claim a favorite among the 1,000 zoo creatures, but admitted, “I’m kind of partial to the big cats. I think they’re all just beautiful and amazing when you take the time to sit and watch them and learn about them.” The educator said she is also a student. “I’ve worked here at the zoo for 28 years and I can truly say that I learn something every day on my job, whether it’s from researching an animal, from talking to a zookeeper who has really intensive knowledge about one species, or chatting with visitors out on the path, it really is a place of learning even for those of us who work here every day.” The education staff has no off-season. “Last year we saw 40,000-plus students in our programming, both on-site and See ZOO, Page A3

Easter egg hunt doubles as Earth Day at Byron


Two January additions bring the zoo’s colobus monkey population to six.

ZOO from Page A2 off-site, so it’s a pretty big operation,” Piropato said. “A lot of our programs are funded with grant support so we can offer them free to various constituents, and for other programs we can charge a fee. But we see lots and lots of kids in a year.” Though the gates have been closed since October, nature has continued its course inside the zoo. Two colobus monkeys were born just two days apart in late January. Obi (“oh-bee”) is a male, born Jan. 26. Mchumba (“meh-choom-ba”) is a female, born Jan. 28. When Piropato wrote the first news release about the blessed events, she had not seen the subjects, because one of the mother monkeys was especially protective. “I haven’t been allowed in

their yet,” she said. “So the pictures that I have were actually taken by one of our keepers.” Those new arrivals mean the troop of black and white monkeys will have six members on hand to welcome the public on April 26. “We have volunteer programs for ages 13 and up,” she added. “Our Z-Team is teens age 13 to 17 and we have about 175 teens who help us every summer, doing various projects. They help at our summer camp, they do education tables around the zoo when we’re open, and we have a conservation crew as well that helps us with conservation efforts. We have adult volunteers who help in a variety of ways — with guest services, with zookeeper support, education programs — so altogether we have about

The Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo will open April 26, and end the 2014 season Oct. 12. The zoo drew 535,744 visitors during the 2013 season, and another 20,156 guests during Wild Zoo Halloween.

400 active volunteers.” Some volunteers even help handle some animals. The zoo offers volunteer training a couple times each year. “We’ve gotten a lot of national attention,” Piropato said. “We were chosen as one of the Top 10 zoos for kids by Parents magazine, which was a really exciting honor for us. The New York Times named us one of the zoos designed with kids in mind, which really kind of nails it because that is what we’re all about.” The Indiana Office of Tourism tallied votes and called the zoo Indiana’s No. 1 summer attraction. “All those things are very thrilling,” Piropato said. “But what we just really love is for people to come back and enjoy the zoo again and again. And the community really

supports the zoo. We are a nonprofit organization. We don’t get any tax support for our operations, which is not typical of zoos around the country. A lot of them get municipal or state funding, and we do not. This zoo is supported by the people who use it. So admission fees, or when you buy an ice cream zone, or ride the train, all those fees are what keep us going every year.” When the visitors return, they will find a pond where a visiting great blue heron stood watch over a gap in the ice in February. Visitors will find squirrels darting between Franke Park and the acorns across Sherman Boulevard. Visitors will see the Canada geese helping themselves to the zebras’ grain. “We’ll just put out a little extra,” Piropato said.

Byron Health Center will hold an Easter egg hunt from 1-3 p.m. Saturday, April 19, on the grounds at 12101 Lima Road. Staff and family will spread Easter eggs throughout the north campus area of the facility. Members of the community are encouraged to bring their children to enjoy the free, pre-Easter fun. Prior to the actual Easter Egg Hunt, booths will be set up with snacks and activities for all to enjoy. Earth Day will also be celebrated as children can plant a seed, then take it home and watch it grow. Byron Health Center also will plant commemorative trees dedicated to two members of the Byron Health Center family who died recently: Don Faley and the Rev. Lawrence Kramer. Byron Health Center residents will participate in the event and help pass out Easter egg prizes. The event will be held rain or shine. Candy will be provided in part by vendors of Byron Health Center Bank and members of the Byron Health Center staff. Special friends of Byron Health Center will receive exclusive invitations, including: congregation members of Keefer Creek Baptist Church, students, staff and parents from Oak View Elementary School, the Fort Wayne Derby Girls and members of the Fort Wayne Corvette Club.

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


CoWork Fort Wayne, a new co-working space on South Calhoun Street, offers office space and a collaborative atmosphere to area independent workers. Visit for more information and photos.

“And a lot of guys who are serious about doing work … they’re not in coffee shops because it gets loud. It’s distracting.” — Dave Sanders, the “wrangler” of CoWork Fort Wayne a space called Founders 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 … 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 do some work.” But they aren’t going to be sticklers.

And those who want to buy in bulk can purchase 10- or 20-day passes at a discounted rate. Sanders emphasized that CoWork Fort Wayne is not a traditional workspace, 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.

Northrop teen job fair invites business advice The Northrop High School PTSA is inviting businesses to share their stories with prospective teen employees. The first Teen Job Fair will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 29, at the high school, 7001 Coldwater Road. PTSA Co-Presidents Kathie Green and Theresa Distelrath issued the invitation in a link to the March 16 edition of the “Bear Necessities” digital newsletter. “One of the untold stories of the recent economic downturn was its impact on young adults,” Distelrath and Green wrote. “In 2011, the proportion of young people employed in July — the month that the National Bureau of Labor Statistics captures data for teenagers — was at its lowest percentage since data was first collected in 1948. The job search process is more competitive than ever for these young people; and yet, the need to work is greater, as family incomes are strained.” “Recognizing the nature of the job market and the critical need for building employment experience during the teenage years, our PTSA wants to help explore ways to connect young people with employment opportunities,” they continued. “Our hope is to connect young people with representatives from businesses and organizations offering employment, volunteer, internship and job training opportunities to teens.” Business representatives will provide the teens with information about opportunities within their organizations, distribute applications, answer questions and share contact information. Educational workshops are also offered to help teens develop job search skills. Speakers also are needed to teach workshops on topics such as resumes, how to fill out an application, and interview tips. Interested employers may email com or “This new project continues the work we have done hosting a College and Career Fair for FWCS students for the last three years,” the two wrote. • A5

Library director announces retirement Jeffrey R. Krull, the director of the Allen County Public Library since Krull 1986, has announced that he will retire this September. Martin Seifert, the president of the library board, said a national search will be conducted to recruit a new director to succeed Krull. “Jeff has been an exemplary leader and ambassador, not only for our library, but for all of Fort Wayne,” Seifert said. “His work and vision have led to a vigorously active and fiscally strong library for all the citizens of Allen County.” Krull, a native of North Tonawanda, N.Y., received his master of library science degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1974. He served as a librarian in the Business and Labor Department of the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library

from 1974-1976, as director of the library at Ohio University – Chillicothe from 1976-1978, and director of the Mansfield-Richland County (Ohio) Public Library from 1978-1986. He was appointed director of the Allen County Public Library in April 1986. Under Krull, the library’s first computerization project was implemented in 1987, automating the cataloging, acquisitions, and circulation systems, and creating the library’s first online catalog. Circulation of library materials increased from 2,795,355 in 1986 to 10,746,406 in 2013 (including new formats such as ebooks and digitized books from the Genealogy Center and Lincoln collections). Attendance at all library locations increased from 1,982,396 in 1995 to 2,615,890 in 2013. Two new branch libraries, Aboite and Dupont, were built and opened to the public in 1990.

The main library was expanded and renovated, adding 127,000 square feet of space. This brought the total building size to 367,000 square feet, not including a new underground parking facility with a capacity of 105 cars. Eleven of the library’s 13 branches were rebuilt, relocated, expanded, and/or renovated. The library’s Genealogy Center, which houses the Fred J. Reynolds Historical Genealogy Collection, is the second largest genealogical research library in the country, drawing visitors from all 50 states and numerous foreign countries each year. In 2009 the library successfully secured custody of the library materials and photograph collection of the Lincoln Museum, after that institution was closed by the parent company. The library initiated a digitization program to preserve and make available millions of pages of books, documents,

and periodicals, as well as photographs from the library’s local history collection, the Genealogy Center collection, and the Lincoln Financial Foundation collection. The library has introduced many new formats to make text, music, and visual arts available, including DVD, Blue-ray, downloadable audiobooks, downloadable music, streaming video, and ebooks. The library conducted a successful campaign to raise $1.5 million in private contributions through an NEH challenge grant in 1987. This established the first endowment fund of the Allen County Public Library Foundation. When the new expanded and renovated main library opened, the library board honored the director by naming the exhibit gallery on the main floor the Jeffrey R. Krull gallery. In 2001 Krull was named a Sagamore of the Wabash by Gov. Frank O’Bannon.

Ivy Tech cyber tech funding is extended A Northrop High School graduate is part of an Ivy Tech success story. Now, the program itself has received some good news. Students involved in Cyber Tech, which is a one-year certificate program, have seen a variety of successes. Perhaps most notably, Northrop grad Patrick Herendeen, who earned his Cyber Tech certificate last year, and advanced to the final round of the Cisco Networking Academy NetRiders competition’s Theatre Finale. That round of the competition included participants from the United States and Canada. There he placed 34th out of 84 finalists. Herendeen is currently finishing his associate degree in Computer Information Technology. His additional Cyber Tech certification qualifies him for jobs in cyber customer service and technical support. The first classes in Ivy Tech’s Cyber Technology certificate program were offered in January 2013. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration has extended the funding through May 2015. “This certificate program provides students with the basic, marketable skills for the industry, plus an entrance into the door of networking and cyber security,” said Raphaël Wolff, the coordinator for Cyber Technology. While the grant is open to any student, the grant is targeted at workers who have lost their job due to the effects of foreign trade and the unemployed and underemployed population. Veterans receive priority enrollment. The program is eligible for financial aid, including Trade Adjustment Assistance, Workforce Investment Act, and Pell Grants. • A7

Carroll Winter Guard ninth in class The Carroll High School Winter Guard finished the 2014 campaign at the state finals on March 22. The 22-member squad finished ninth among 18 units in the Guard A competition of the Indiana High School Color Guard Association State Championships at Center Grove High School in Greenwood. New Castle Varsity finished first. Winter Guard is an indoor color guard activity, performed to recorded music, that integrates dance with color guard skill sets including, but not limited to, flags, rifles and sabers. Carroll’s Winter Guard 2014 show is entitled “Between the Rain Drops.” It is a visual interpretation of Etta James’ popular tune “Cry Like A Rainy Day.” “This season means a lot to me and going to state, being able to say that these girls can achieve anything when we work hard for it, but it makes it difficult that we’ve come so far and only have one performance left,” Carroll High School Junior Alexis Tucker said before the state finals. Carroll’s Winter Guard program is a four-time IHSCGA state finalist, with a three-time AA Gold Rating. The Carroll Winter Guard program placed in the Top 5 at every contest during the regular season, making it their most successful season to date.

Matthew 25 commends Freys for years of work Matthew 25 Health and Dental Clinic announced the recipients of the 2014 Fabric of the Community Award. The annual award recognizes outstanding dedication and ongoing support of Matthew 25. This year, the organization recognized Dr. Jim Frey and Judy Frey for their longtime service and commitment to community wellness. Dr. Frey has served the Matthew 25 clinics for

more than 20 years. “He shows kindness in caring for the needs of the less fortunate while maintaining a future-focused vision of comprehensive community health prevention, education and treatment,” the clinics said in a news release. “As Jim’s dedicated partner, Judy has helped make her husband’s work possible. She has also made her own special contributions as a Matthew 25 volunteer.

Nurse practitioner joins Easter Seals Arc staff 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, “We 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.” 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 specific 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. ESARC hopes to have their on-site clinic up and running over the next few months.

Together, the Freys truly represent the generous and compassionate spirit of Matthew 25.” The Fabric of the Community Award was presented at the Art & Soul event, March 6 at the Arts United Center. The annual event raises funds to help cover yearly operating costs for Matthew 25’s medical and dental clinics. Last year, more than 300 people attended the event, raising more

than $107,000 for the organization. Matthew 25 is a nonprofit, Gospel-inspired primary health care clinic serving more than 6,000 uninsured and low-income area residents each year. Since 1976, the clinic has been the only full-time regional resource offering free medical, dental, vision and hearing services under one roof. For more information, visit


Dr. Jim Frey and Judy Frey were honored for their service to the Matthew 25 health and dental clinic.

The use of cigarettes, cigars, oral tobacco, electronic cigarettes, and all other tobacco products will be prohibited on campus and other sites controlled, operated, or leased by the university. “Implementing a tobacco-free policy will bring added benefits to the well-being of our entire community,” Chancellor Vicky Carwein said in a news release. “Tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke remain the leading causes of

The report released in January adds even more diseases to the previous list of smoking-caused diseases, including Type 2 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, erectile dysfunction, macular degeneration that can cause blindness, two additional cancers — liver and colorectal — and cleft palate birth defects.

Lutheran Foundation makes gift to free clinic The Lutheran Foundation made a $20,000 matching grant to Christian Community Health Care, which the free medical clinic will use to serve a greater number of patients this year. The clinic, located at 13410 Main St. in Grabill, provides acute care services Mondays through Thursdays. The clinic can serve as many as 12 patients each session, and no appointments are necessary. In an announcement, the clinic said it will augment its services with monthly specialty programs such as an ear, nose and throat clinic and addiction counseling, and it might start a diabetes clinic. Through its grant, the Lutheran Foundation will match funds given by new donors, or gifts given by

donors that are higher than what they were in 2013. More information is available at or by calling 627-2242. Mark Schlatter, the executive director of CCHC, issued a news release about the grant. “During strategic planning meetings held a few months ago, the board of directors for Christian Community Health Care realized that they need to be better prepared to assist area families that are struggling medically and ďŹ nancially. “Healthcare reports indicate that the current uncertainty with health insurance and the lingering stagnant economy will increase the number of potential patients needing help from CCHC and other

charitable clinics,� the statement said. The Lutheran Foundation, based in Fort Wayne, has awarded grants to CCHC since 2003, and provided major funding for their current clinic facility in Grabill. CCHC’s volunteer staff provides free services for residents of northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio. Anyone who would like to partner in helping to match the clinic’s $20,000 grant may mail their gift to P.O. Box 128, Grabill, IN 46741, or deposit it at any iAB Financial Bank location in the greater Fort Wayne area. More information about the clinic’s services and the matching grant campaign can be found at or by calling 627-2242.

Cedar Canyon nature area earns national certification Northwest Allen County Schools has been notified that the American Electric Power Foundation Nature Explore Classroom, located at Cedar Canyon Elementary, 15011 Coldwater Road, has earned national certification as a Nature Explore Classroom from Dimensions Educational Research Foundation and the Arbor Day Foundation. In 2011, Trees Indiana was awarded a donation from the American Electric Power Foundation for the design and construction of an outdoor classroom at Cedar Canyon Elementary. Trees Indiana is an organization that focuses on educating urban students on the benefits and value of outdoor environments. “On a regular basis, the outdoor classroom is utilized by many of the NACS Elementary Schools, homeschool students, and neighboring school districts to provide an engaging ‘hands-on’ experience to enrich student learning,” said Kim Lochmueller, Cedar Canyon Elementary principal. “These experiences not only support the curriculum, but help to cultivate a love and appreciation for nature.” According to the website, “Certified Nature Explore Classrooms are dynamic, nature-based play and learning spaces. Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom Design Services apply research-based, field-tested design principles to create these nature-rich outdoor spaces that can be located anywhere a school, child care center, park, or other community site might have a traditional playground.” Lochmueller added, “The entire community has benefited from the partnership NACS has built with Trees Indiana in establishing the Nature Explore Classroom. We are truly blessed at Cedar Canyon to have been given the opportunity to house the Nature Explore Classroom on our grounds.”

Lincoln Highway advocate to trace route A Leesburg man plans a 150-mile walk across the state to raise money for two causes. Jeff Blair will follow the 1928 route of the historic Lincoln Highway, from Dyer on the Illinois state line, through Fort Wayne to the Ohio state line. Blair is the president of the Indiana Lincoln Highway Association, which will share the money raised with the Alzheimer’s Association. Blair, 66, plans to begin the walk April 25 and reach Fort Wayne on May 3, and the Ohio line on May 5. Along the way, he plans to meet with local leaders, eat lunch and dinner at places of historical significance, and educate the public about Alzheimer’s and the Lincoln Highway through daily entries to his blog page. Blair is accepting pledges per mile or a total amount for the walk. Pledges or checks should be made out to the Indiana Lincoln Highway Association and mailed

to 402 W. Washington St., South Bend, IN 46601. He also will accept pledges at, where he will share his story. Blair invites interested persons to walk with him for a few hours or more, as long as they represent pledges they have gathered totaling at least $100. “Life is a journey. Each step or mile is a memory worth saving,” Blair said. “I grew up in Goshen, one block off Lincolnway East, but did not understand its significance as the nation’s first coast-to-coast road until I became a member of the Lincoln Highway Association. The LHA nationally and the Indiana LHA are both not-for-profit organizations that are doing great things to commemorate this neat old road, beautify it, remind us all of the part it played in developing the auto industry and America’s tourism business, educating our youth to its fascinating history and its ties to our 16th U.S. president, and more.”

Health fairs designed to detect risks early By Garth Snow

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,â€? she said. Marquardt now works through the nonproďŹ t agency full time, coordinating health fairs for adults and students. “We have added a larger selection of lab testing and health checks,â€? Marquardt said in an email. “We have grown from being perceived as only a ‘senior’ clientele service

BLOOMINGTON — Peyton Lengacher’s summer break from Indiana University will be spent a little differently than the way his fellow students probably will spend theirs. Lengacher won’t be just working at a summer job, he’ll be running the show. Lengacher, a sophomore from Fort Wayne, has won an internship through Student Painters that will allow him to fully operate an external house painting business. Lengacher will do it all, from hiring and training workers to buying equipment and ordering materials to seeking out jobs around northeast Indiana. The goal is to teach budding entrepreneurs the ins and outs of running a business, and Lengacher is banking on the experience. “It’s an experience for me to understand and appreciate what running your own business is like and the responsibilities of it,� Lengacher said. “I’m interested in entrepreneurship, and this is going to give me the experience of what it takes and all the

After applying, he had a sit-down interview with a Student Painters representative, then a phone interview before a ďŹ nal interview that focused on establishing his goals if named a branch manager for the summer. Lengacher said the goal,

foremost, is to earn enough money to fund a studyabroad program his junior year. He hopes to do well after Student Painters takes its 40 percent cut and he pays his employees. Another goal, though, is to hire a crew that he says has “chemistry.� Lengacher played on two state champion baseball teams at Carroll High School, and said he knows the value of See GRAD, Page B3

The students displayed their winning projects as they competed for numerous awards, including more than $2,500 in cash prizes, sponsored by local businesses and organizations dedicated to science and engineering. Up to 10 Junior division (grades six through eight) student projects and up to 10 Senior division (grades nine through 12) projects will represent the northeast Indiana region at the Hoosier State Science

Each year, elementary school children participate in science fairs to find new ways to explore and document the world around them. Northwest Allen County Schools congratulated students who participated this year, and those whose creativity earned them a wider audience for their work.

National awards, cash prizes, and scholarships can be earned at all levels of the fair. Since 1955, the fair has served as a catalyst for thousands of area youngsters by encouraging and rewarding their creativity and inspiring them to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Watch for updates at Not every student can be the champion of

their school science fair, but every student who participates gains knowledge, skill and insights into science and technology. Science Central saluted those students who didn’t win their school’s science fair, but whose work nonetheless deserves recognition at Science Fair Recognition Day. Forty-one students representing 21 schools from Fort Wayne and the surrounding area were on-site at Science Central to participate in the event. Participating students explained their projects to visitors, and provided explanations of their findings.

Lengacher’s crews will specialize in full exterior paint jobs. They’ll do trim, soffits and downspouts, and decking, he said. Lengacher said he’s already been back to the area multiple weekends for marketing, and he plans to travel back regularly giving free estimates and lining up work. He admitted he’s a bit nervous, but ready to get to work. “If I fail, I fail, but at this point I’m not accepting that as an option,” Lengacher said. “I hope to come out of it aware of what it takes to run my own business.”

must be 18 to participate in blood screening. For details, visit fohealth. com. “These are pretty reasonable prices,” Marquardt said in an interview. “The learning center exhibits are more service-oriented, not product-oriented, where people can get help or learn more about a certain topic — arthritis, sleeping disorders — 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 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.

Kindergarten roundup set

Carroll takes first in percussion Carroll High School’s Indoor Percussion Ensemble earned first place in the state finals March 22 in Indianapolis. The 32-member group traveled to Ben Davis High School to compete in PSA — the intermediate level. Fifteen ensembles reached the state finals in that division. DeKalb placed 11th. Indoor percussion is competitive music and movement involving drums, keyboard instruments, auxiliary percussion and dancing. Carroll’s show is entitled “Elements” and is a visual and musical depiction of the elements: Water, Air, Earth and Fire.

“From a competitive standpoint, it’s just phenomenal to see our kids in the potential to perform at the highest level possible,” Carroll Band Director Doug Hassell said before the state finals. “But to be in the position to be considered as state champions, or even to be at the Top 3 level, is truly inspiring.” The five-and-a-half-minute performance has been rehearsed since November when the indoor percussion season began. “No matter what happens this weekend,” Hassell said last week, “they have proved that this is the best indoor percussion ensemble in our school’s history. And with 29 out of 32

The East Allen County Schools Kindergarten Roundup Day has been rescheduled for Tuesday, April 29. This roundup is for families who have a kindergartner beginning school in the 2014-15 school year. Families may enroll a child who is 5 years old on or before Aug. 1 of the new school year. A child who has a birthday from Aug. 2 to Aug. 31 may apply for an early admission waiver. The deadline to apply is June 6. Applications are available at all elementary schools. For more information, call 446-0100. Roundup locations and hours are: Cedarville Elementary, 8:15 a.m.-4 p.m.; Heritage Elementary, 8 a.m.-3 p.m.; New Haven Primary, 8 a.m.-3 p.m.; Southwick Elementary, 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m.; and Woodlan Primary, 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Families must bring a birth certificate, immunization records and proof of residency.

students eligible to return next year, it speaks volumes as to our potential for a great future.” The drum line next competes at the WGI World Championships on Thursday, April 10, at the University of Dayton. “Carroll has been a part of the IPA Championships for eight years,” the school said in a news release. “CHS has competed in both ‘A’ and Open Class. ‘A’ is the beginning to intermediate level, Open is the intermediate level.” The highest placement in Carroll’s history before Saturday’s top price was fifth in Open Class and fourth in “A,” in which Carroll currently competes.

Dinner helps therapeutic riding center At least four local chefs will present their individual interpretations of a country barbecue at a May 2 fundraiser at the Cottage Event Center in Roanoke. The event begins at 6 p.m. Tickets are $12 per adult, $8 for ages 6-10, and free to age 5 and under. Get tickets at the door. The band Autumn Grey will entertain. Proceeds support services offered at Oak Hill Farm therapeutic riding center in Roanoke. Brenda Stoffel, the director of Oak Hill Farm, is a Professional

Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International-certified riding instructor and a hospital medical technologist. Since 2005, Oak Hill Farm has helped more than 350 children and their families discover their potential with therapeutic horseback riding. Therapeutic riding is designed to help individuals with disabilities to improve muscle control and coordination. For more information and photos, visit “All of the proceeds from this

fund-raising event go to the cost of student lessons, internships with the universities, and for the special-needs equipment,” Stoffel said. “We’ve managed over the last seven years to not have to raise our prices through our fundraising events.” Chefs will represent Shigs in Pit and Granite City Food & Brewery in Fort Wayne and Good Grains Gluten Free Bakery in Roanoke. Stoffel’s son, chef John Christlieb, will represent Prairie Pure Pork, of Huntington.

“My son and I both have a passion for food, and we decided it sounded like a lot of fun to get several chefs who shared a common appreciation for whole foods,” Stoffel said. Christlieb once worked at the riding program at Oak Hill Farm, as did Stoffel’s two other children. Christlieb has been a chef for 15 years, and graduated from Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts, in Boulder, Colo. He will return home for the benefit.
