District energy program saving more than money By VALERIE CAVIGLIA

While school corporations across the country continue to struggle with shrinking budgets, some have started to reap the benefits of cost-saving initiatives implemented to make district spending more efficient. Northwest Allen County Schools is not only seeing benefits of its own, it was awarded for one of its initiatives at a recent school board meeting. The district was recognized as an Energy Star Leader by the federal Energy Star program, an honor bestowed only upon the country’s most energy efficient schools. Actions taken by NACS to reduce its energy spending has not only made them appear more environmentally adept, it’s saving jobs. Bill Mallers, Northwest Allen County Schools business manager, said NACS partnered with Dallas-based Energy Education, who helped them implement a program to combat rising energy and utility costs in January 2010. With the help of consultants, NACS Energy Manager Dave Hey works with maintenance and other staff at their facilities to ensure best practices are used to reduce energy use. Consultants visit the district two to three times each month to walk the grounds and point out any opportunities for energy savings. “What we were doing was getting our heating and air systems on occupancy programming or scheduling,” Mallers said. “We worked with Energy Education engineers to maxi-

From there, it was a total package on how we were using our energy and how we could eliminate or reduce the costs associated with that.” Mallers said the purpose of occupancy programming is to shut down HVAC systems in buildings like Carroll High School.

Student applications flood pharmacy school By RICK FARRANT

The Manchester College School of Pharmacy, expected to open this fall in Fort Wayne, has already received more than 450 applications from prospective students. It only expects to enroll 70 in the first year. The school also has received 240 queries from regional pharmacies interested in serving as sites for students’ experiential See PHARMACY, page A23

To keep the HVAC system running when it was unoccupied or occupied by only a few people at one time was inefficient and costing the district valuable savings. “We don’t need a whole building to be heated or cooled when there is just one person there,” he said. “Electricity, heating and cooling, that’s like your biggest See ENERGY, page A22

Ceremony kicks off McDonald House renovation No matter how tired, worn out or stressed a parent may be when their child endures long stays in the hospital, the last thing they want to do is leave them there alone. It is one of the many times in a parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life when they may feel torn, knowing they need to get rest, but canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring themselves to leave the hospital. This kind of worry is exactly what the Ronald McDonald House at Parkview has eliminated for parents whose children are required to stay at the hospital for long bouts of treatment. Since 2002, the charity has provided a home-like place for families to stay nearby their childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hospital room, getting the rest they need to be strong for their children. On April 11, the Ronald McDonald House at Parkview Regional Medical Center officially started construction on a

sledgehammer, Ronald McDonald himself kicked off the project, which will transform portions of the former Parkview North imaging department into the new 9,000-square-foot house. The complete demolition and remodel of the current space is expected to take five months. Once completed, the new Ronald McDonald House will be located on the main floor of the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital. A capital campaign raised enough funds to move forward with the renovation, including a $576,000 in-kind donation of space by Parkview Health, $100,000 donated by RMHC Global, a $250,000 donation from Fort Wayne-area McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurants and community donations. Parkview was one of the few partner hospitals


chosen by Ronald McDonald House in which to locate facilities for parents of sick children. Since it opened in 2002, the Ronald McDonald House has served more than 10,000 families and plans to do the same for many more to come. Once the renovation is complete, the new space will house a large gathering room with a private sitting area, a kitchen, a large family-style dining room, a library with reading nook and computers, as well as a laundry and snack room. Ronald McDonald House Charities will open 10 new houses and expand 12 existing Ronald McDonald houses in 2012 to help fulfill the needs of families currently on waiting lists for a place to stay close to their child during treatment.

Healthy Times New fitness club collaborating with community A new gym in northwest Allen County is partnering with other area businesses to throw a grand-opening party that will raise money for a very worthy cause. On Saturday, May 12, from noon-5 p.m., MaxFitness, located at 1415 W. Dupont Road, plans to donate a portion of its proceeds to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Indiana. Seven businesses will take part in the official grand opening, offering products, services and raffle prizes. Food and drinks will be available, as well as a chance to win a car from Kelley Automotive. On weekdays leading up to the official grand opening, a different vendor will visit MaxFitness from 4 to 7 p.m. Area businesses visiting the gym May 7-11 include Solar Tan, Cali Nails, Healthkick, All About You Day Spa and YoYoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The vendors plan to raffle off a prize each night at 6:30 p.m. Each of those businesses plans to return for the grand opening on Saturday and will be joined by Back in Action and Massage Envy. This kind of community collaboration is just what MaxFitness owner Scott Dierckman had in mind when the gym first opened. He wanted it to be a part of the community in which it was located and saw working with other area businesses

as an opportunity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to get other businesses in the community involved and promoting their stuff,â&#x20AC;? Dierckman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about builiding relationships in the community and also getting people to visit our gym.â&#x20AC;? MaxFitness, which offers no-contract memberships starting at $9.95 a month, was designed using an open layout that they have divided into various exercise areas. A 2,000-square-foot functional training area lined with artificial turf is located at the back of the gym. Visitors might recognize some of these exercise techniques and equipment from NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Biggest Loser,â&#x20AC;? which shows contestants trying to shed pounds through various cardiovascular and functional training activities. At the gymâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other end is cardio cinema, where members can workout in a semiprivate room while watching a movie on a wall-sized screen. Adjacent to that is where group classes are held at the gym, including Zumba, cycling and Les Mills programming.

Freshly squeezed entrepreneurs By RICK FARRANT

For Kylee Shirey, the project appeals to every noble and daring part of her: the risk-taker, the entrepreneur, the economic visionary, the hopeful steward of education and community, and the grateful attorney who believes at her very core she must pay back what others have given her. It will begin with lemonade stands throughout Fort Wayne and — who knows, she

said — may very well wind up being the little project that pays some of the biggest dividends in retaining and attracting talent in Fort Wayne. It will begin with Lemonade Day Fort Wayne on May 12 — the inaugural event here connected to a 6-year-old nationwide movement to encourage entrepreneurship among young people by having them erect lemonade stands and in the process learn about starting and running a business.

“What I love about this idea is it’s such a simple concept, and yet we’re teaching kids these really, really important life lessons that they’re not getting in schools right now,” said Shirey, an earnest 31-year-old corporate attorney with Barrett & McNagny LLP and codirector of Lemonade Day Fort Wayne. “It’s a way for parents — or if a parent isn’t involved, another mentor — to come alongside a kid and See LEMON, page A22

Three Rivers breaks ground on new headquarters Three Rivers Federal Credit Union has started construction on a new $15-million headquarters at the corner of Lima Road and Northland Boulevard in Fort Wayne. A recent groundbreaking ceremony celebrated the start of construction on the 26,000-square-foot building. The projected cost of the east building headquarters construction project includes renovation of the existing west building corporate office. Together, they will be able to accommodate 153 employees, exceeding existing capacity by about 50 percent. The buildings will be more energy-efficient, have more natural lighting and provide more views of the outdoors, which will be landscaped in a way that maximizes green open space. The project will involve 107 tons of steel made locally. “This expansion positions Three Rivers for dramatic growth over the next decade,” Jeff Meyer, chief executive officer, said in a prepared statement. “The groundbreaking marks the beginning of an era where we can bring our unique approach to financial services to even more of the individuals, families and small businesses in our community.”

Summer day camp fun for inquisitive kids

Courtesy photo

Kids take part in STEM-related activities during Camp Invention summer day camp.

Where can kids go to be whisked off to an island or taken for an adventure on a time machine? Believe it or not, it is a summer day camp coming in June to two schools in Fort Wayne. Camp Invention is a weeklong program for students entering first through sixth grades that helps children discover their own innate creativity and inventiveness through hands-on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) content. Each day, children rotate through four integrated modules that employ creative thinking to solve real-world challenges. Children will learn life skills such as problem solving and

teamwork through imaginative play. There are two local sessions parents can choose from: For $215 per child, Camp Invention will run June 11-15 at Oak View Elementary School, 13123 Coldwater Road, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. For $225 per child, the camp will run June 25-29 at Canterbury Lower School, 5601 Covington Road, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Families that register three or more siblings will receive $50 off, per child. In this summer’s “Envision” program, children can experience different modules including Inventeureka, Action and Adventure Games, Magnetropolis, and I Can Invent: Balloon Burst. Children will

spend their week visiting a faux island to study magnetism, taking a fantasy adventure on the Ci6000 Space Modulator Time Machine, inventing a balloon-bursting machine, and more. Also launching this summer is the counselor-in-training program, ideal for Camp Invention “graduates” who are now too old for the program. These individuals will assist leadership interns with tasks and help to mentor participants. To register a child for these programs or to learn more about Invent Now programming, visit or call 800968-4332.

Lilly scholarship awarded to Bishop Dwenger salutatorian The class of 2012 salutatorian at Bishop Dwenger High School was recently awarded a Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship to attend any Indiana college or university. Danielle Messman is one of five students in Allen County to receive the scholarship. She plans to attend Purdue University to pursue a degree in engineering. From a total of 77 student scholarship applications in Allen County, 25 were forwarded for

review by the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Selection Committee at the Community Foundation. To be eligible, students had to successfully demonstrate overcoming an obstacle, financial need, academic performance, work and community involvement, and a personal statement of goals. After the Community Foundation Lilly Scholars Selection Committee narrowed the field, the finalists’ names were submitted to Inde-

pendent Colleges of Indiana Inc. for the selection of the recipients. The scholarships are a result of a statewide Lilly Endowment initiative to help Hoosier students reach higher levels of education. There were 142 Lilly Scholarships awarded statewide.

Preschool to benefit from senior class gift Each year, the graduating class at Carroll High School chooses a gift to bestow not upon their school, but a recipient who is less fortunate or in need of assistance. For the class of 2012, a special needs preschool won over their hearts. The special needs preschool at Cedar Canyon Elementary serves children ages 3 to 5 within the Northwest Allen County School district. To prepare them for future schooling, the program focuses on the individual needs of each child. Activities that encourage motor skill development have allowed some children to begin kindergarten without additional assistance.

Carroll’s senior gift committee decided to focus their fundraising efforts on supplementing the program’s motor skill development activities by purchasing specialty Rifton bicycles and additional necessary equipment for class. As an added surprise, the class of 2012 has committed funds to send members of the special needs preschool on a field trip to the Indianapolis Children’s Museum. To contribute monetary donations to the Carroll High School class of 2012 senior gift committee, checks can be made out and sent to Carroll High School, c/o Steve Pickett, 3701 Carroll Road, Fort Wayne, IN 46818.

Budget Tight? Are you pregnant? Breastfeeding? Have a child under 5? WIC might be able to help. The Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program provides free checks for nutritious foods, breastfeeding support and nutrition education for all kinds of qualifying families - single parents, married, working, not working and foster.

HEALTH from page A7 begin your journey with focusing on whole foods. Fishshaped crackers and hot dogs are convenient, but what health benefits are they providing for you or your kids? As you wean these items out of the diet, replace them with veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds and real meat (out with the hot dogs, bologna and deli slices; in with the rotisserie chicken and grassfed burgers). In a matter of several days, your taste buds will change and so will your kids.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It just takes time, support and the willingness to change and experience new things. If you want to get more movement in your daily routine, summer is the perfect opportunity to get outside and enjoy the beauty this season brings. Rise early for family walks, get out the sprinkler or the trampoline

(with safety net), or bike the trails. Instead of packing your summer schedule with vacations and endless hours at the ball diamond, use this time to regroup. Slow down. Enjoy summer. Enjoy your family. Form an alliance with those in your household and plan out how you will gradually implement behaviors that will enhance everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health. Make simple changes like eating more vegetables, removing soda from your house, replacing packaged food items with whole, real food. Try planting a garden, frequenting the farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s markets, making meals together, and playing outside together. As you implement these new behaviors, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find that you feel better. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll more than likely have more energy,

Rural studio tour perfect for leisurley lookers Eight artists will open up their personal and professional studios to visitors during a self-guided tour in the Leo-Spencerville area on Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Now in it’s third year, the Rural Studio Tour blends a variety of artist mediums such as printmaking, jewelry design, pottery, painting, photography, clothing design and mixed media sculpture art. Several studios will present demonstrations or interactive art projects for guests on the tour, including printing press demonstrations with Shirley Hiner, wheel-throwing demonstrations with

Kristy Jo Beber and raku firing at Sue Davis and Steve Vachon’s studio. The tour is free of charge and studios will have one-of-a-kind pieces available for purchase. Artists and friends Lisa Vetter and Kristy Jo Beber organized the first Rural Studio Tour on May 1, 2010, in “their neck of the woods.” “With all the Amish out here, we envisioned having the Amish transport the attendees in their buggies, in place of the nice trollies and busses that (the Fort Wayne Museum of Art’s) Trolley Tour uses,” the organizers said in a press release. “The joke turned into a

lunch meeting of brainstorming and the Rural Studio Tour was born, sans the Amish drivers.” Guests on the Rural Studio Tour will receive a map to each studio destination and can visit as many studios, in any order, they wish on their own time. Updates to the tour and maps will be available on the tour’s Facebook fan page, Printed maps will also be available at several local businesses, including The Orchard Gallery, Artlink and Firefly in Fort Wayne, as well as Higher Grounds and Leo Cafe in Leo.

Dr. Lori’s yard sale ‘don’ts’ By Dr. Lori

Have you ever spent a Saturday morning going to yard sales? The signs are all around you, but you don’t want to drive around aimlessly or waste money buying junk. Here are some tips for making the most of your yard sale shopping spree. Don’t forget the cash Yard sales are not like a quick trip to the convenience store. You will need more than just your keys, cell phone and credit card. You need coins and small bills in order to take home the best from a yard sale. Don’t ask a yard sale seller Dr. Lori to break a $50 bill, it could be the end of your negotiations. Don’t sell everything Some things aren’t supposed to be sold on the front lawn. Don’t sell original art or jewelry at yard sales. There are not enough people shopping at a local yard sale to attract high prices. Yard sales are not the place to get big bucks for your heirlooms. Don’t get up early I have made it a lifelong rule that there is no good reason, other than a house fire, to get up before 8 a.m. Don’t get up at the crack of dawn to try to beat everyone to a yard sale. You won’t miss a thing.

In fact, you can get the best prices around lunchtime as most yard sale hosts are ready to call it quits. By noon, sellers are exhausted and they don’t care what you pay for that Wedgewood cachet pot, as long as you take it with you. It is a great time to negotiate or even get stuff for free. Don’t buy damage Condition is a key to value. If you pick up a completely tattered linen from a yard sale thinking that it is some fabulous antique Amish quilt, you are probably paying hard-earned money for the same rag that your husband would use to wax the car. Someone else’s Courtesy photo tattered piece isn’t automatically a wonderful antique. Don’t fantasize about a yard sale find. If it is in poor condition, leave it on the lawn. Don’t buy parts I always say that buying parts is for auto mechanics not yard sale shoppers. Don’t buy incomplete sets or games with missing pieces. Buy complete games in their original boxes whenever possible. Instruction booklets increases value by 15 percent. Don’t let it go until you know what it’s worth As an antiques appraiser with a Ph.D and decades of market experience, I know

Tractor pull to benefit Arcola fire department Since the 1970s, the Arcola Tractor Pull, now known as the Arcola National Truck and Tractor Pull, has been the major fundraiser for the financial support of the Arcola Volunteer Fire Department. This year’s NTPA-sanctioned event will be at Branning Park June 29-30 beginning at 7 p.m. The cost for admission is $15 for adults; $5 for children ages 4-10; and free for children age 3 or younger. The MICHIDOH series event, which features street-legal pickups, two-wheel

and four-wheel drive pickups and diesel pickups, will take place on Thursday, June 28, beginning at 7 p.m. The cost for admission is $10 for adults; $5 for children ages 4-10; and children age 3 or younger are free. Event gates open two hours prior to all events and tickets are available at the gate. For more information, visit the Arcola Volunteer Fire Department's new website at, or find them on Facebook.

Concordia students present ‘It’s a Jungle Out There’ Concordia Lutheran High School theatre will perform “It’s a Jungle Out There” on Friday, May 4, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, May 6, at 2 p.m. in the school auditorium. Tarzan aficionados will appreciate the references

to jungle movies and Edgar Rice Burrough novels in this show. The evil Princess Oolala will stop at nothing to bring Lord Greyscale’s jungle fortune to ruin. Can Starsan save the day? Maybe his great ape

friend Cheeter can help. The show is written and directed by Concordia’s resident playwright, Chris Gieschen. Tickets are $5 for adults and $4 for students in high school or younger.

What’s new at the zoo? ʻFamousʼ dingo pups to delight The gates to the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo have officially reopened for its 48th season. Behind them await new animals, upgraded guest amenities and zoo babies, some of which have become Internet sensations and generated a media following. Seven dingo puppies born at the zoo on Jan. 30 have made headlines since photos and videos of the tiny creatures first hit the web. The puppies were born to Mattie and Naya, who were imported from Australia in 2010 and are one of just 75 pairs of pure dingoes worldwide. On most days, the zoo said groups of puppies and their parents will rotate between their exhibit and a behind-thescenes pen. Even though they were born in May or June of last year, around seven kangaroo joeys have just emerged from their mother kangaroos’ pouches and are now exploring the Australian Adventure exhibit. The zoo said that all of the joeys were sired by their only adult male kangaroo, Mako, who joined the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo last March. For more than 40 years, a group of sociable and crowdpleasing rodents greeted zoo-goers from an exhibit just inside the zoo entrance. The prairie dogs, which were displaced when the zoo started planning a new entrance, have returned after a four-year hiatus and are now waiting for guests at a new exhibit. Though they look like squirrels, the northern tree shrew is closely related to primates. This unusual, new creature can be found in the Indonesian Rain Forest at Dr. DiverCourtesy photo

ZOO from page A20 sity’s Rain Forest Research Station. Two male kunekune pigs named Elvis and Pugsley have arrived on the zoo’s Indiana Family Farm. Originating in New Zealand, this breed is small, friendly and very vocal, making them a perfect fit for this handson farm display. The zoo’s reticulated giraffe herd grew to eight animals with the addition

of a 2-year-old male giraffe, Ezeji, who arrived from the Indianapolis zoo over the winter. Ezeji and Jelani, the herd’s bull giraffe, will take turns on exhibit with the females. A few zoo exhibits were given a makeover this spring: the black-footed penguin and Aldabra giant tortoise exhibits received new landscaping, fencing and signage to enhance the displays. And thanks

to the zoo’s new food service partner, Service Systems Associates, concession stands have also been upgraded, offering pizza by the slice, whole pizzas, wraps and salads. In keeping with zoo practices, concessions will continue to use biodegradable plates, cups and utensils. The Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Tickets for adults cost $13.50; children ages 2-14 are $8.50; seniors age 60 or older are $10.50; and children age 1 or younger are free. Those who purchase a zoo membership will also be admitted for free. For a list of other accommodations or more information, visit

EARTH from page A3 Earth Day celebrations, with tree planting, installing erosion control mats, removing garbage on riverbanks and rallying for cleaner water. “I have attended many where there are booths inside buildings to celebrate Earth Day and felt a need for something more. People need to embrace the natural spaces that we have and enjoy them, beautify them,” King said. The grassroots organization was formed to create awareness about the conditions of the rivers in Fort Wayne and to also facilitate “ecosystem restorative projects to help Lake Erie,” according to the group’s website. The St. Joe, St. Marys and Maumee rivers are all a part of the organization’s projects. “What we do is extremely important,” King said. “Our municipality does not clean up trash in the rivers due to liability, and the (Department of Natural Resources) only runs through twice per year to clean up trash.” King’s efforts to improve water quality began when she purchased a home near the Maumee River. “Save Maumee has been a very timeconsuming hobby for me since I purchased a home a few hundred feet from the Maumee River in 2000 and my friends told me I could not take the kids swimming in the Maumee,” she said. “Since then, I have been researching what is wrong with our rivers in Fort Wayne. I saw a need in our community.” The work of King and many other volunteers is starting to pay off. Recently, the organization was awarded “Indiana Organization of the Year 2011,” presented at the Butler University Conference and given by the Hoosier Environmental Council.

“Our volunteers have set the example of effective ways to help with the No. 1 pollutant in our watershed — sedimentation/erosion — and rallied our local citizens, business and government to action,” King said. The group focuses on the Maumee because it contributes to the Great Lakes and also has local importance. “We focus on the Maumee because the St. Joe and St. Mary’s come together to form the Maumee. Here in Fort Wayne, revitalizing the Maumee watershed will protect and restore the environment and improve the economic, aesthetic and recreational value of our waterways.” The organization also represented northeast Indiana during meetings on Capitol Hill and has participated in Clean Water Week in Washington, D.C., since 2008, King said. The group will take part in SolFest at Fox Island County Park in May, and it will hold its fifth-annual Canoe Cleanup later this year. When it comes to keeping local rivers clean, King offered some advice. “No littering — ever,” she said. “One hundred percent of litter eventually ends up in rivers.” She also recommended that citizens attend meetings, make suggestions and “be a voice for your river.” She said the group is busy planning, executing and implementing plans to benefit all. “I am glad the time is now, but we need people to be involved in this process,” she said. “It will take people to fix these problems and work for cleaner water.” To learn more about Save Maumee, visit

LEMON from page A8 work through this with them. “And I think it’s neat because the Wall Street Journal has done stories — and just nationwide there have been stories told — about kids who set up their lemonade stand and then the next year they add to it. So it’s entrepreneurialism breeding more entrepreneurialism. Once the kid gets the bug and they can see the potential of what they can do — the ideas they can generate and the money they can make — they will get really excited about it.” Lemonade Day was started by Houston-based nonprofit Prepared 4 Life and has grown from that one city to an anticipated 43 this year involving nearly 200,000 young people from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade. Shirey is hoping for 1,500 first-year participants in Fort Wayne, “but I wouldn’t be surprised if we exceed that.” Other Indiana cities involved in the program include Bloomington, Elkhart, Indianapolis, Lafayette, Terre Haute and Richmond. The event has become

so popular that Prepared 4 Life has switched its chief focus from after-school programs for at-risk children to national organizer of Lemonade Day, which can encompass all children. Prepared 4 Life licenses and provides some of the resources for local Lemonade Day organizers. Shirey and Julie Eberly, president of Prepared 4 Life, said workbooks provide a guide for setting up a lemonade stand business, including lessons about making a business plan, drafting a budget and learning how to market a product. The workbooks, provided in backpacks with other supplies, are offered free through the support of local sponsors and partners. In Fort Wayne, the title sponsor is the Summit. Other sponsors include Barrett & McNagny, the University of Saint Francis Students in Free Enterprise Club, the Schwab Foundation, the WBCL Radio Network, Parkview Health and LaBov & Beyond Marketing Communications and Training. There are also a host of nonpaying supporters,

including Junior Achievement of Northern Indiana, the Greater Fort Wayne Chamber of Commerce and WANE-TV. Shirey, who learned about Lemonade Day from a newspaper article in Indianapolis and then recruited Phil Maurizi of the University of Saint Francis to serve with her as co-director, said the local program has thus far raised about $110,000 in cash and in-kind donations. It needs another $13,000 in cash to reach its targeted amount, which will be used for both this year’s expenses and some of next year’s. Beyond learning how to run a business, Shirey said, Lemonade Day participants will learn how to be self-sufficient and ‘it will create a new generation of philanthropists.” “The kids get to keep the profits they earn,” she said, “but they are encouraged to spend some, share some and save some. They are encouraged to enjoy the fruits of their labor a little bit, save up for a rainy day and give back to the community that supported them.” Eberly said the next emerging step is inte-

grating Lemonade Day with lessons in school classrooms, and that’s already happening in Houston and Chicago. She said her organization has developed materials that make it easy to align such things as lemonade-stand math and science with school curricula standards. There are also the somewhat less-measurable benefits. “We’re seeing kids that are starting to believe in themselves,” Eberly said. “They’re finding they can be successful in something. There’s also some evidence it may have an impact on kids staying in school.” Lorena Orvananos of Sugar Land, Texas, just outside of Houston, can attest to the benefits of Lemonade Day. She, her husband, Alejo, and their children — Alejo Jr. and twins Isabela and Patricio — began participating in Houston’s Lemonade Day as a family project two years ago. She ticked off all the learning her children have experienced: that not all income is profit; that business location is important; that advertising helps; that teamwork and thinking

outside the box are critical; and that it helps if a business is unique. The Orvananos family addressed uniqueness with a secret lemonade recipe and a home delivery option that has Alejo Jr., now 11, and the 8-yearold twins transporting plastic pitchers of lemonade to residents of their suburban neighborhood. Their family project had one other reward: It brought a shy Patricio out of his cocoon. “At the end of the first Lemonade Day,” his mother said, “he was so open, he was so excited. It was great for him. Now, he’s a lot more confident.” Shirey was never short on confidence, by the sounds of her life’s journey, which began outside Oakwood in Paulding County, Ohio. But the mother of two young children shares so many of the qualities and experiences that typify Lemonade Day. In grade school, she had a Route 66 lemonade stand made out of a cardboard refrigerator box, and later she tested her budding entrepreneurial skills by making hair scrunchies

Kylee Shirey and selling them at her father’s convenience store. At the heart of her involvement in Lemonade Day, though, is a mission that brings a repressed tear or two when she talks about it: helping the community by offering payback for the assistance she received along the way. It is the kind of philanthropic responsibility Lemonade Day hopes to instill in young people. “People,’’ Shirey said, “have invested in me, and I think it’s important to give back. I wouldn’t be in the position I’m in, I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing had it not been for people taking their time to invest in me.”

ENERGY from page A1 expense,” Hey said. “Before, nobody really paid attention to how long the air conditioning was running. Now, this building doesn’t come alive until 20 or 30 minutes before the kids get here. Then we shut it off half an hour before they leave.” Another usage adjustment for the district came in programming its interior and exterior lighting systems. “We didn’t have a good shut-down schedule that involved lighting, so that was a big component,” he said, adding that staff members in the district’s food service department were also contributing to energy cost savings by preheating ovens at To place an ad call toll free 1-877-791-7877 or Fax 260-347-7282 • E-mail

the appropriate time and following proper equipment use guidelines. “Any time we’re talking about energy usage, we’re talking about the behaviors of our staff, right down to extracurricular (activities). They may use a large gym and turn on an abundance of light, but only have a meeting of 20 people. We would want them to use a smaller classroom for that,” Mallers said. “That’s why the program is so valuable. It keeps it at the forefront. Part of it is just awareness and it comes down to the staff usage of those buildings.” “You still need reminders. That’s what I’m for,” Hey said as he watched one of the head custodians shut a propped-open classroom door during a walk-through tour of Carroll High School. “See, there’s a good example. It’s about behaviors — making everyone cognitive of, ‘Do I need these lights on? Did I turn the computers, monitors, printers and copiers off at the end of the day?’”

While everyone has played a role in making the program successful, Hey gave most of the credit to the district’s custodial staff. “These guys need more a pat on the back than anybody, really,” Hey said. “When you need stuff done in the buildings, they’re the go-to people.” With the near $2 million in savings the district has accrued during the first half of its four-year contract with Energy Education, Mallers said the district is not only fulfilling its responsibility to the environment, but also to students and staff. “The biggest thing we’ve been able to do is maintain educational programs and the staffing that goes along with it,” he said. “In 2009-10, we dealt with some major budget cuts and this has allowed us to maintain some of our educational programs without going further into cuts. We’ve been able to maintain staffing.”

PHARMARCY from page A1 learning. That will be a nice number when the four-year school is fully enrolled, but it’s clearly more than is needed now. Finally, the college already has hired the required number of faculty (22) and staff (five) needed in the early going — and employees aren’t expected to begin moving into the new $20-million, 80,000-square-foot facility near Parkview Regional Medical Center until June. The projected first day of classes is Aug. 13. Dave McFadden, college executive vice president and interim dean of the pharmacy school, is more than pleased with the student interest, quality of faculty and perhaps chiefly the community support for the school, including the work of a community advisory committee and the interest emanating from community pharmacies. “We’ve really been overwhelmed by the interest in the professional pharmacy community to be engaged with the school,” McFadden said. “We have more sites identified than we need immediately. People are saying, ‘We are eager to have these students working with us, learning from us.’” All of the region’s major chain pharmacies are represented, he said.

Moreover, seven faculty members already have begun working at area health care facilities as one part of the experiential program that will have them staying fresh in practicing their profession and also teaching pharmacy school students. Herb Halley, director of experiential education for the pharmacy school, said in cases where faculty split time between health care facilities and teaching, the employees’ salaries will be shared by the two organizations or funded entirely by the school. Manchester College is building the pharmacy school on the strength of a $35-million grant from the Lilly Endowment. Beyond the cost of building the school, McFadden said, the money will be used for startup costs that cannot be covered by tuition in the first two years — including the salaries of faculty and staff. McFadden said he believes the pharmacy school elevates the stature of Manchester College. “When people think about Manchester’s institutional capacity,” he said, “the fact that we were able to pull this off says something about the quality of leadership, and it speaks to the commitment to exceptional education. You can’t

do a school of pharmacy as a fly-by-night program.” Just as important are the economic and quality-oflife contributions the pharmacy school will give to northeast Indiana. McFadden said when the school has its full contingent of 40 faculty and 10 staff members, the economic impact in payroll alone will be $5.5 million a year. “You will also have 270 students living in the community, some of them with families,” he said. “They will be moving their families and buying houses and other things. It’s hard to quantify, but it will be happening.” Halley added that some of the graduates will remain in the region; pharmacies and other industries with pharmacyrelated jobs will use the experiential opportunities

as a recruiting tool. “They can see who the best candidates are,” he said. “Which ones are the best fit for them.” As smoothly as the pharmacy school project has gone, there are still some significant tasks left to complete, not the least of which is a six-year accreditation process. Halley said the school is also seeking other experiential sites, such as pharmaceutical companies and government agencies.

McFadden said the pool of student candidates must also be winnowed to about 120 — 70 first-choice candidates and 50 alternates. And the school must select a new dean to replace founding dean Philip Medon, who resigned in November for health-related reasons. McFadden said the dean candidates have been pared to three, and he expects a new leader to be chosen by the end of April.

When all is said and done, McFadden said, the new school will be a reflection of outstanding community involvement that began with the advisory committee, which helped design various aspects of the school’s offerings. “I can tell you what the accreditation site team said,” Halley said. “They said this was the most involved, most active participation they had ever seen.”
