s thing.� Teens took part in several activities aimed at showing them how being distracted behind the wheel could lead to deadly consequences. In one activity, teens were strapped into a golf cart — borrowed from Whispering Creek Golf Course — where they attempted an obstacle course while wearing “drunk goggles,� Blair said. “The goggles show kids what being impaired really looks like,� she said. Teens also were able to play the game corn hole with the goggles on in an attempt to simulate their hand-eye coordination skills after a few drinks. Teens also could drive the golf carts around the obstacle course while

attempting to send a text message to their parents. Blair said quite a few orange cones were run over during the experiment. In addition, students learned firsthand about a semi driver’s blind spot, Blair said. An 18-wheeler was brought into the parking lot and two cars were parked behind it. Teen drivers then were able to climb into the driver’s seat and witness the blind spot for themselves. The New Haven Police Department was on site with drug-sniffing dogs, showing teens how the dogs locate drugs, even when they are buried and hidden. Parkview Trauma Center also was on site -iiÊ ,6 ] >}iÊ£x

Forty or more New Haven High School students spent a Saturday in September learning about the perils of distracted driving during the school’s “Celebrate My Drive� event held on Sept. 15. The driver-education event was a collaboration between insurance company State Farm and local Students Against Destructive Decisions chapters nationwide. More than 300 chapters participated in “Celebrate My Drive� events across the country, said Kelly Blair, the school’s SADD adviser. The process began at the end of the 2011-12 school year, Blair said. She’d heard about the State Farm initiative and signed up with the Indiana SADD organization to get paired with a local insurance agent. Once she was connected with agent John Parker, the two got to work. “We started and began to map out maybe what the day should look like,� Blair said. Both Parker and Blair knew the event needed to be twofold — it had to both celebrate teen driving and educate teens about driving safety. What took place included teens directly interacting with police officers and first responders while learning the importance of avoiding distracted driving. State Sen. Dennis Kruse also was in attendance. “We really wanted teen drivers to walk away recognizing that safe driving is important,� Parker said. “Anytime we can promote staying away from bad decisions, that is a really good


The Spirit of Woodlan marching band will continue its march toward the Class C Indiana State School Music Association marching band state championship after it earned a gold rating in ISSMA district competition on Saturday, Oct. 13, in Chesterton. The band of 76 members performed its show, “Our Creed: Power, Passion, Pride,� which earned it one of 10 spots available to bands in the northern half of the state. The band will compete against 19 other bands — nine from the northern half of the state and 10 from the southern half — in semi-state competition on Oct. 27 at Decatur Central High School in Indianapolis. The Spirit of Woodlan will take the field

at 4:02 p.m. The band, a constant state finalist in Class D, moved to Class C this year for the first time due to increased enrollment numbers. Others area Class C bands advancing to semi-state include the Norwell Marching Knights, the Concordia Lutheran Marching Cadets and the Angola Marching Hornets. In other ISSMA district competition, several local bands will advance to semistate. In Class A competition at Lafayette Jefferson High School, the Snider Mighty Panther Marching Band scored high enough to advance to semi-state along with the Homestead Spartan Alliance, the Northrop Big Orange Pride and the Carroll Charger Pride. -iiÊ  -] >}iÊ£Ç

Lots of Halloween fun coming to New Haven "Y.ICHOLE(ACHA 4HOMAS NTHOMAS KPCNEWSNET

The pint-sized ghosts and goblins in New Haven will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy Halloween this year, with traditional trick-ortreating, the city’s annual Downtown on Broadway and a party in the park. While official hours for trick-or-treating have been set for Wednesday, Oct. 31, from 6-8 p.m. by New Haven Mayor Terry McDonald, there are a few other ways to have fun on Halloween. Kids and families can kick off the fright night

festivities an hour earlier at the city’s annual Downtown on Broadway event from 5-7 p.m. Hundreds of families will line Broadway Street to collect Halloween treats from local merchants. Betty Wheeler, marketing manager for Peter Franklin Jewelers, said the decision was made to begin the event an hour earlier this year to allow children to make the most of the official trickor-treat hours. “This is the first year we’re doing it like this,� Wheeler said. “We expect it to be even more of a success. Kids can come

down here and then trickor-treat in their neighborhoods.â€? Wheeler said the downtown businesses came together more than 15 years ago to offer the service to the community. Some businesses hand out candy and others hand out coupons to parents, too. Merchants aren’t required to participate, but Wheeler said most do. “More than 20 businesses participate. For us, it’s just something we all love to do as a way to give back to the community,â€? said Wheeler, who most -iiĂŠ"7 ] ÂŤ>}iĂŠĂ“

years can be found donning a fairly authenticlooking witch costume while handing out treats at the jewelry store. As in years past, Wheeler said she expects more than 1,300 children to enjoy Downtown on Broadway this year. Another local activity taking place on Halloween for kids and families is the annual Halloween carnival at Schnelker Park from 56:30 p.m. In its 13th year, the event will feature free


popcorn and a host of carnival games circling the pavilion, each designed with kids in mind. From a bean-bag toss to other fun games, children can play and win candy. The carnival, which draws upward of 500 trick-or-treaters each year, is hosted by the New Haven Parks and Recreation Department and is free to the community, said Jessica Jones, a parks department office assistant.

P.S. The only real question to ask yourself is this‌

Another study presented at the American Academy of Pain Management in 2007 showed‌

No Dangerous Drugs, No Invasive Procedures, And No Painful Exercises

One of the biggest myths about pain is that it goes away all by itself, without any treatment.

“Patients reported a mean 88.9% improvement in back pain and better function‌No patient required any invasive therapies (e.g. epidural injections, surgery).â€?

Spinal Decompression with Active Therapeutic Motion (ATMÂŽ2) protocols are very gentle. In fact, I even catch a few patients sleeping during sessions every once and awhile.

books, broken tools, or other images indicating work left incomplete was selected by grieving families to represent the contributions of a dearlymissed loved one. This Halloween, remember to take a moment and consider the spooky yet sensational works of art of your local graveyard.


Early gravemarkers The living felt the need to mark graves with stones as a reminder of the person buried there. Many American artisans responsible for gravestone carving were masons or stoneworkers. Grave stones were carved with frightful motifs like angels of death and winged skeletons. Some of the most popular


MIKE P(-,(CS School Board • 5R At Large


&ROMCIRCATO SOMEOFTHEPOPULARIMAGESONGR AVESTONESWERESKULLANDCROSSBONES imagery found on grave stones relates to death and the journey from this world to the otherworld. From circa 1700 to 1780, some of the popular images on gravestones were skull and crossbones. The symbolism apropos for a grave marker was that the skull of the deceased would have wings that would fly his or her soul to heaven. Some of the more common motifs found on gravestones include hourglasses, a symbol of the passage of time, and youthful winged figures reserved for those who died

young. In the early 1800s, flowers, weeping willow trees, and classical urns offered a more classical view of death than earlier grave stones.

Victorian gravestones By the Victorian period, circa 1838-1901, the references to death on gravestones emerge as far less frightening and intimidating than earlier examples. The highlight of graveyard artistry came in the latter part of the 1800s when more people visited

graveyards. Cemeteries became more survivor-friendly. Graveyards evolved into tree-filled park settings. Many cemeteries emerged as highly appropriate sites to host a Sunday picnic at the flower-decorated grave of a loved one. Grieving angels, classical muses, and sleeping children all took their place in early 20th Century gravestone art. Spilled flowers and broken columns were common symbols of a life ended too soon.

As Halloween approaches, we are interested in all things spooky. Since art is everywhere, I thought a discussion of the art found in one of the spookiest of locales might prove of interest — graveyard art. Carved grave markers and sculpted headstones that dot cemeteriesí landscapes have a rich history. The first grave markers were actually boulders. These great stones were thought to be a good solution to keep the dead from rising out of their graves. It was thought that if heavy rocks were placed on the grave sites of the deceased, they would not be able to climb out from underneath them. These early grave markers were not highly decorative, but that tradition changed by the onset of the 16th Century.

It may have been broad daylight outside, but I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see a thing from within the Haunted Caveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;vortex.â&#x20AC;? I was nearing the end of a behind-the-scenes tour of the popular Halloween destination. Russ Gusching, who runs the place, had momentarily left me alone while he flipped the breaker to activate the vortex room so I could experience it for myself. There I stood, surrounded by darkness and silence, save from the creaking and groaning of the building and the faint sound of a passing train. And then the room began to move. A circular wall spun around the walkway, its glowing, electric paint splatters moving all around me. I instantly lost my equilibrium and clumsily stepped along the walkway, one hand gripped to a railing to keep from falling over. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is the floor moving, too?â&#x20AC;? I asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, the bridge is completely fixed, the room is just spinning around you,â&#x20AC;? Gusching said. Of course he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t phased by the motion â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he had seen this before a hundred times.

The Haunted Cave Cost: $10 general admission; $13 fast pass Location: 4410 Arden Drive, Fort Wayne Hours: For current hours, visit The vortex is just one of many illusions created by Gusching and owners Tim Stone and Jerry McCann, who have been in business now for 15 years. The Haunted Cave known today started out on a much smaller scale â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as a fraternity party. Stone went all out for Halloween to throw a huge scare-fest for family and friends. He tried to outdo himself each year, eventually needing a party space that was 2,0003,000 square feet to accommodate 350 guests. His parties required an entire month to prepare. Then in the late 90s, he decided to take it further, turning the party into an attraction open to the public. It was probably the right move. During peak season, the Haunted Cave spooks an average of 1,200-1,300 -iiĂ&#x160; 6 ] ÂŤ>}iĂ&#x160;ÂŁ{

Bridging the Gap WWW&7$AILY.EWSCOM

East Allen County Times â&#x20AC;˘ /CTOBER 


Perhaps one of the longest-running projects in the city, the Maplecrest Road extension to connect northeast Fort Wayne to New Haven began with plans more than 25 years ago when the land was donated to the city. The Allen County

Board of Commissioners announced this month the bridge officially would open on Tuesday, Oct. 30. A ribbon-cutting ceremony with the theme of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Connecting Communitiesâ&#x20AC;? will take place at 11 a.m. on a portion of the highway near the Do it Best headquarters in New Haven. The theme, county offi-

cials said, will celebrate the collaborative effort of Allen County, the cities of Fort Wayne and New Haven, and state and federal officials to make the Maplecrest Extension a reality. It was a project long in the making. Construction began in 2010 to bridge the gap between the two communities. The exten-



and S.R. 930 in New Haven. When the extension opens, it will have been

completed nearly a month early, said Bill Hartman, director of the Allen County Highway Department. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We expect to complete (the project) ahead of schedule,â&#x20AC;? Hartman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hot, dry weather is horrible on the crops, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great for construction.â&#x20AC;? Long-awaited, the opening of the road will be cause for celebration for those in both communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We imagine this being quite an important northsouth corridor in east Allen County,â&#x20AC;? Hartman said. -iiĂ&#x160;*] ÂŤ>}iĂ&#x160;Â? Â&#x153;Â&#x2DC;iÂ&#x20AC;

Excitement is hard to contain for Cheryl and Chuck Wene, owners of Lopshire Flowers located in Georgetown Square.

Lopshire makes plenty of deliveries in the east Allen County area and welcomes the new throughway. Cheryl said drivers will save plenty of time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll save time, not to mention the fuel savings,â&#x20AC;? Cheryl Wene said. Partee said she hopes


to see increased foot traffic at the shopping center once the extension opens and she imagines plenty of residents in the Georgetown and surrounding areas will be making trips to New Haven more frequently. â&#x20AC;&#x153;New Haven has always been a great neighbor to us, but they will be so much closer now, it really is bridging the gap,â&#x20AC;?

FWOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anterior Hip Approach means recovery in days, not weeks.


The Leo High School Lions football team took the field at Lucas Oil Stadium â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the home of the Indianapolis Colts â&#x20AC;&#x201D; on Oct. 13 to face off against the Bluffton High School Tigers. The game, originally scheduled for Oct. 12 was moved when the pair of teams was asked to be a part of the Championship Saturday event by Ray Compton of Compton Strategies, which served as the promoter of the threegame event. The matchup saw the once-beaten Lions beat Bluffton with a score of 56-14. The Leo team was selected because of its history of community support and its reputation for supporting kids. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are excited about the opportunity and count this as an honor and a privilege,â&#x20AC;? said Brock Rohrbacher, Leoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletic director.

6 vĂ&#x20AC;Â&#x153;Â&#x201C;Ă&#x160;ÂŤ>}iĂ&#x160;Ă&#x160;Ă&#x2C6; thrill seekers on Saturday nights alone. At times, the line to enter wraps around the street. Even the line for fast-pass ticketholders may see an hour wait, compared to two hours in the general admission line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty much a year-round job,â&#x20AC;? Gusching said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year we bit off more than we can chew, which we do every now and then. So here we are scrambling.â&#x20AC;? At this time of year, Gusching is just trying to make it through the motions: work, Haunted Cave, sleep and repeat, he said. Gusching took a week off from another job to focus on the attraction full time, which meant perfecting the Haunted Caveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest effect â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the gas chamber: A door will shut behind cave-goers once they enter the box. A light and sound show will distract them as the box moves so slowly, they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening. When the door reopens, the group will exit from the same door they entered wondering how they ended up on the other side of the wall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think it will be a cool effect. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been getting more into the animated rides over the last couple years, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the things weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been focusing on this year,â&#x20AC;? Gusching said. The near 10,000-square-foot building features 17 rooms, each with different themes to play into just about every human fear: arachnophobia, claustrophobia, disorientation and a serious helping of the unexpected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of our rooms change as you walk through them. We have censors that trigger the effects to go off so that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting when you walk in. It just comes to life,â&#x20AC;? Gusching said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to make it like a roller coaster so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not complete gore, in-your-face scary from start to finish because you get numb to it. Some rooms are there just to give you a breather to calm the nerves.â&#x20AC;?


2USS'USCHINGHASBEENSPOOKINGPEOPLEATTHE (AUNTED#AVEFORYEARSANDSTILLLOVESIT Each room is staffed with actors who work to keep traffic flowing through the cave, all while making the hair stand up at the back of your neck. All these actors are volunteers. In fact, the cave is manned throughout the year by volunteers to help with everything from demolition and construction, to ticket-taking and acting. The Haunted Cave, which opened for the season Sept. 21, almost guarantees to have something new for visitors each year. Even before the season really had started, Gusching already was making plans for the next. But even without the actors and effects in motion, the Haunted Cave is just spooky. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This place creeps me out actually. At night when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re walking around and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just you and you hear the building creak and groan and moan, you just (think), â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Get me outtaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; here,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Gusching said with a laugh. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s saying a lot for someone who can walk the cave with his eyes closed. I think I will just take his word for it.

values and leadership,â&#x20AC;? Gliot said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do that through outdoor programs and camping. But camping isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t why we exist, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we do to further those goals.â&#x20AC;? While Boy Scouts fundraising may evoke thoughts of caramel popcorn, the inaugural seafood boil events in 2011 were very successful, Gliot said. It netted the organization approximately $15,000, which the organization used to plug its $1.7-million annual operating budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The seafood boil) is just one more avenue to raise more funds for the operating budget for things like summer camp support and recruitment,â&#x20AC;? Gliot said. Camp operation costs nearly $350,000 each year and recruitment is equally important, Gliot said. AWAC recruits 3,500-4,000 new scouts each year. Event organizers hope to raise $22,000 this year while boosting attendance from 70 last year to 120 this year. Tickets for the seafood boil are $250 per couple or $1,000 per table. Tickets for both the dinner and the cooking class are $350 per couple and $1,400 per table. To register for the events, call the scout office at 432-9593. The reservation deadline is Oct. 22. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope to make this an annual event,â&#x20AC;? Gliot said.

Did you know the Centers for Disease Control reports diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in American adults? November is American Diabetes Month and also Diabetic Eye Disease Month drawing attention to not only diabetes, but the eye conditions affecting both type 1 and type 2 patients. Diabetes can present in the eye in many ways, and whether or not you are on insulin, the longer a person is diabetic, the more likely he or she will have problems. Eye doctors can, sometimes, be the first to be suspicious of diabetes in a

patient even before it is diagnosed with blood work. Sometimes patients will come in simply with blurry vision. Rapid changes in glasses prescription can be a clue that blood glucose is abnormal. High sugar in some people can cause these big shifts as the lens in the eye swells. Of bigger concern, however, are problems in the retina, or back lining of the eye that registers light. The retina is fed by a blood vessel supply where the tiniest branches can leak fluid or bleed as they become weak from high blood sugar. This stage, called non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy, and according to the National

Institutes of Health (NIH), between 40-45% of American diabetics have it. This early damage is just monitored by your primary eye doctor and can often be controlled with better blood sugar management, along with better blood pressure and cholesterol control. All of these things affect the health of the small blood vessels. If the damage progresses though, it can lead to poor blood flow to parts of the retina and the eye will try to make up for it by growing new blood vessels for nourishment. These vessels themselves do not affect vision, but they are weak and can bleed easily. This proliferative diabetic retinopathy leaves a person at high risk for vision loss as the bleeding can progress to scarring, pulling on the retina, and even retinal

detachment. Advanced diabetic retinopathy is mostly treated by retinal surgeons who are very specialized eye doctors. It can include laser therapy to help shrink the abnormal blood vessels, or injections into the eye of a medicine that can stop the signals for new blood vessel growth. Diabetics are also at risk of macular edema. This is swelling in the very center region of the retina and can occur at any stage of retinopathy. The fluid leakage here is dangerous because as it scars, it can leave a permanent blind spot in the middle of a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision. It is treated in similar ways to proliferative retinopathy with different types of lasers or injections. Diabetics are also at a higher risk of glaucoma than other adults and at a

younger age. This may be related to blood flow to the optic nerve. Overall, the standard of care is yearly dilated eye exams for all diabetics with the goal of damage being caught and managed early. According to the NIH, â&#x20AC;&#x153;people with proliferative retinopathy can reduce their risk of blindness by 95 percent with timely treatment.â&#x20AC;? Your doctor that manages your diabetes will often ask about these yearly eye exams as they can signal how your body is doing overall with the disease. Make sure your eye doctor is communicating the results. Remember, it is important to not wait for symptoms, and since diabetes is a medical condition, eye exams to watch for related changes, regardless of if damage is present, should be covered under your medical insurance (ie: Medicare, Anthem, Aetna, PHP, etc.), even if you do not carry vision insurance. Check with your optometrist or general ophthalmologist to make sure he or she is a provider, and take the time


,AUGHLIN now to have your eyes checked during American Diabetes Month if it has been more than a year since your last dilated eye exam. As always, follow your diabetes doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendations for diet, exercise, and medications knowing they can also be saving your sight. This is a guest column. Dr. Kara Heine Laughlin now is exclusively practicing at the Grabill Eye Center, 13813 State St. in Grabill.
