Bands tune up for a trip to Indy By Garth Snow

High school bands have begun fine-tuning their shows at festivals in hopes of reaching the state finals in Indianapolis. Heritage, New Haven and Woodlan bands saw their first competition Sept. 7 at Bluffton High School. Leo’s band played the Grabill Country Fair parade that day, and played its first festival Sept. 14 at DeKalb High School. Festivals and preliminaries continue through October. Most area bands compete Oct. 5 at Homestead High School. Just 10 bands in each of four divisions will compete Nov. 2 at the finals at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. At Heritage High School, Katie Grieze said this could be the band’s year. Grieze, a junior, and senior Erin Linker are Heritage drum majors. Heritage band director Jim Widmer stops short of predicting that the Pride of Heritage Marching

we’ve gotten some really great reactions from both audience and judges.” Said Linker, “It has a variety of motions from almost scary to humorous and cheesy to rocking out and having fun.”

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 pass to Jury Pool for 2014; food samples from 2-4 p.m., with several downtown vendors participating; vendors will sell

Kelly Klinker’s Woodburn pumpkin patch has produced misshapen globes that weighed almost half a ton, so he had no delusions about his 374-pounder’s prospects in the Indiana State Fair. As he feared, his entry missed the blue ribbon by a few hundred pounds. Still, his finished fourth among the five entries. Dwight and Karen Slone trucked a 1,039pound pumpkin to Indianapolis from Prestonburg, Ky., and claimed top prize in the Aug. 10 judging. “It was almost what I expected,” Klinker said. “I was hoping mine would be closer to 400 pounds.” Because it’s an open class competition, growers from other states may enter. “Usually we have one of those that sneaks in,” said Klinker, who also has crossed some state lines. “I usually travel to Ohio or Michigan when

Leo Jr./Sr. High earns counseling honor Leo Jr./Sr. High School has been selected as 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.

for Halloween season,” he said. “It’s probably around 300 pounds right now, and I don’t know where it’s going to end up. But I’m hoping around seven, eight hundred pounds.” Klinker thanks a friend, Tom Beachy of Harlan, for giving him some pumpkin seeds in about 2002. He said Beachy still grows pumpkins, but just for Halloween. “I’ve always had a garden,” Klinker said. “But there’s just something different (about the pumpkins). They grow so much faster and they’re so big. They’re just a lot of fun to grow.” He said the hobby involves a lot of work. “I usually spend anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes per night, especially in June or July when it’s warmer and the pumpkins are really growing,” he said. “I water and weed and I train the vines in the direction I want them to go. The vines will root down, and I put dirt on the vines to help promote more root growth.” His largest pumpkin so fear reached the 980-pound mark just in time for Halloween, 2009. He donated the pumpkin for a display, he said, adding that he probably will do so again this year. He said his state fair pumpkin and some of the other entries also were donated, for a public display in Hong Kong. He said he does not know the details. The giant pumpkins aren’t good for food, he said. “They’re just for display, or they’ll carve them,” he said. The pumpkin walls are 6 to 12 inches thick, and lend themselves to 3D creations. “They’re generally all shapes, sizes and colors,” he said. His 374-pound state fair pumpkin was fourth among five entries.

Last year he entered a 260-pound pumpkin, for last place among eight entries. Three-time Indiana State Fair winner John Barenie of Griffith has grown a state-record 1,308-pounder, but his 2013 entry only reached 927 pounds. That was good for second place. Klinker said Barenie grows lots of smaller but still formidable pumpkins, for grocery store displays. Other state fair entrants were from Corryton, Tenn., and from Morristown, in central Indiana. Klinker retrieves the seeds from the huge pumpkins. “They’re not readily commercially available,” he said. “Typically other giant pumpkin growers will trade with each other. I’ve actually sent seeds to Europe.” At season’s end, Klinker donates his pumpkins for a display, so that others can enjoy the crops. “The last two years with the drought I haven’t been able to donate,” he said. “It’s a nice way to give back to the community.” Klinker’s garden grows more than pumpkins. The Carolina Cross watermelons can reach 100 pounds. The Big Zack tomatoes usually reach three or four pounds, although some seed sellers say the fruits can reach six pounds. Beachy, who helped Klinker get his start in pumpkins, grew Indiana’s largest field pumpkin of 2012, an 83-pounder. Field pumpkins average about 20 pounds, and are the size most commonly carved into Jack-o’-lanterns. Pumpkin enthusiasts can find Beachy’s achievement along with state records, growing tips, pumpkin merchandise, and the Top 10 pumpkin list at

If you’ve suffered from any of these annoying conditions, you may have “Sciatica� if the pain is in your leg or “radiculopathy� if the pain is in your arm. Sciatica is a compression of the sciatic nerve, usually by an L4 or L5 disc herniations. Radiculopathy is the compression of the nerves coming off of the neck.

Church advocate returns to Kenya By Garth Snow

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 ďŹ ve 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.â€? She is not teaching the women to make jewelry or to crochet. “These women have the skills already,â€? 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 ďŹ nancially 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.â€? Foster spent the summer networking from Saint Joseph United Methodist Church, 6004 Reed Road. “This is my home church,â€? she said. “I started going here when I was 13 years old. I left Fort Wayne for work. But this has always been my home base.â€? “In 2008 I was at a point in my life where I wanted something more,â€? 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 ended up volunteering in an orphanage for about a month in 2008.â€? Back in Fort Wayne, Saint Joseph pastor the Rev. Russ Abel and Simba Scholars founder Saneta Maiko told Foster about an opportunity to work with children in Africa. “Russ told me I’d be a good missionary,â€? she said. “And I thought ‘maybe later, I need to make money.’â€? 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,â€? she said. “And I thought this would be really cool if I could make it happen somehow.â€? “And there were a lot of fears that I had to face,â€? she said. “I have to raise about $40,000 to $60,000 a year to do this.

In that more intimate setting, she said, people open up and ask more questions. She caught a ight to Kenya on Sept. 5. The school is a ministry of Saint Joseph UMC.

Covington Plaza Art Hops offer refreshments, specials 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. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea is for people to stroll the plaza, like they do at our art fair,â&#x20AC;? said Sarah Keltsch, the owner of The Monogram Shoppe and more. Each participating shop has a local artist in their shop and serves refreshments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives the artists a showcase for their talent,â&#x20AC;? Keltsch said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not charging them.â&#x20AC;? Artwork is offered for sale, and stores might offer other specials. Keltsch remarked on the number of restaurants available in the plaza. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So you can

stroll and see the artists and then go to dinner, or visa versa,â&#x20AC;? 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. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thursday is a funny night; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not quite the weekend,â&#x20AC;? said Keltsch, adding that visitors have welcomed such projects elsewhere. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can be a girlfriends night out, or it can be a couples night out,â&#x20AC;? Keltsch said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All these are local shops, owned by local people,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Fair queen returns to studies Miss Allen County 2013 Morgen Figel returned to her college studies Aug. 19, one day after the Indiana State Fair Queen pageant in Indianapolis. Figel, a 2012 Bishop Luers High School graduate, lives in the Wedgewood neighborhood in northeast Fort Wayne. She earned her Allen County crown July 21, but was not among the 10 finalists at the state fair pageant. Instead, she looks forward to making appearances throughout the year in service to her home county. Even before the state fair ended, Figel had moved back to Ball State University, where she is a sophomore preparing for a career in nursing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through this pageant, I definitely learned that you just have to be confident in yourself,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

BANDS from Page A1 And should they have the chance to lead the show at the finals, both drum majors are prepared for the responsibility and the attention of thousands of spectators. “It makes me slightly nervous,” Grieze said, “but I know that I have to look past the nervousness and muster up as much confidence as I can.” Linker said the band is like an extended family. She said she is prepared for the responsibility. “I’ve been around these kids long enough, and I’ve been around the program enough,” she said. Widmer described the show as an eclectic mix of symphonic music from the original “The Twilight Zone” television show, followed by disco and rock counterparts.


The Leo band rehearses “The Foundry” for their show, “Just Another Day.”


Erin Linker and Katie Grieze are the drum majors for the Pride of Heritage Marching Patriots.

At Woodlan High School, director Robert Slattery said the band numbers 67 this year. “We aren’t able to start as many kids as we have in the past,” he said. “It’s a little bit smaller.

But they’re just as good as they have been in the past.” “It’s a very energetic opener, and then a little bit more somber second number because we’re dealing with the life cycle of the phoenix,” he said. “And then the third number is very energetic because it’s depicting rebirth.” At New Haven High School, director Todd Caffee said the Mighty Marching Bulldogs will present music from “Mary Poppins.” “It’s coming together very nicely,” he said. “It’s fun. Last year was a very intense, driving kind of show. This is more of a crowd pleaser that you’ll go home whistling.” At Leo High School, the band has bigger numbers for 2013. “I think when I started here at Leo we had 29 in the band, and we’re up to 80 and our numbers are just continuing to grow,” said director Robert Myers. “The band people and the community just seem to be very supportive, and they like the band, and it’s an incredible place to work.

and what we’re trying to do.” Myers said the band made the top 10 in 2011, and he’d like to have another chance at the state finals. “But more important it’s about making sure the kids have a good experience and that we set them up to be successful,” he said. Leo’s band will not

compete on Sept. 21, but will stay home and welcome a clinician. Leo will present a community performance on Oct. 5. “There are a lot of great bands out there,” Myers said. “I try to take a little more laid back approach. I think it’s just really important for our kids to have a good experience. Where we end up at the

end of the day doesn’t matter as long as we get better from week to week.” “Out of 80 kids I have maybe 26 newbies, and I want to make sure every one of those kids has a good experience, so that when they leave there they can say ‘boy, that was a lot of fun,’ ” Myers said.

St. Joe Hospital project to affect parking, access St. Joseph Hospital officials announced that campus parking garage renovation has begun. The garage will remain open for the duration of the multi-year project, but the total number of spaces will be reduced temporarily during each phase of construction. Phase one requires closing the north side of the garage including the doors and the elevators from the garage to the attached medical office building. Patients and visitors who use the garage and find walking a challenge are urged to use the free valet parking that’s available at the hospital’s main entrance off Broadway, from 5 a.m.8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Able patients and visitors wishing to use the garage and to reach the elevators inside the medical office building

will need to exit the garage at ground level and enter the attached facility through its main doors along Broadway. The second-floor walkway from the medical office building to the hospital will remain open throughout construction. Public access from the garage to the attached medical office building is expected to resume late this fall. If patients or visitors choose not to use valet parking and they are unable to use the stairs, then they should park on the first floor of the garage. Phase two of the project will focus on updating the south section of the garage. It will temporarily require drivers to exit and enter the structure through the same access point off of Broadway. Phase three will update the center section of the parking garage, mainly the cross ramps.

Bluffton author Kayleen Reusser has started a new writing club for authors and aspiring writers in the Fort Wayne area. The Fort Wayne Christian Writing Club meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month at the Waynedale Public Library, 2200 Lower Huntington Road, in southwest Fort Wayne. The monthly gatherings, which start at 6 p.m., are open to anyone who enjoys writing and wants encouragement and feedback, or aspiring writers who need a catalyst for starting their own writing career. The Fort Wayne club is an offshoot of the Bluffton Christian Writing Club that Reusser and another writer, Rhonda Maller, started in 2009. Reusser said the main purpose of the writing groups is to provide camaraderie, offering a place where writers can come together and critique one another’s work “in a gentle atmosphere that offers other perspectives and ideas for improvement.” The idea for a writing club came after Reusser received support and inspiration from one in the past. “A similar group catapulted my writing back in the 1980s,” she said. “I was a wannabe writer who managed to get away from her busy family for one evening a month to meet with writers at a church in Fort Wayne.”

Kelty’s Kafe features fare by culinary arts students 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. 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.


Ivy Tech Culinary Arts students sample their own work. Students will offer their work to the public at Kelty’s Kafe, each Wednesday through November 20.

“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.
