Friends step up to help local racing figure Lee By Garth Snow gsnow@kpcmedia.com

‘Addams Family’ takes Leo stage

By Garth Snow gsnow@kpcmedia.com

Love changes everything for Uncle Fester. Leo Jr./Sr. High School senior Jajuan Allen said he tried out for other roles in the spring musical, “The Addams Family.” But the best fit was Fester, he said, and he’s OK with that. “Fester and I are both silly guys, basically like adult kids. So I’m on the stage, running and dancing, 24/7,” Allen said. “He starts to mature when he falls in love with the moon. I mean, you have to mature

when you fall in love, right?” Fester chases his dream until the closing curtain. “At the end of the play I blast off and my face is up there in the moon,”Allen said. The rest of the Addams family also undergoes changes, starting with the finger-snapping opening number, “When You’re an Addams.” Addams daughter Wednesday is courting Lucas, from the more conventional Beineke family of Ohio. Lucas has

Wednesday’s brother – Pugsley – tries to disrupt the courtship. Confusion ensues. Conflicts arise. Misunderstandings are resolved. All to the words of song after song.

Tom Lee’s friends and family say he is known for two things. “He’s done racing out at Baer Field for most of his adult life. Car No. 76 has always been his number,” said Mary Jones, Lee’s sister. “He’s done a lot for me personally. He’s been a major figure in my life,” said Shawn Bonar, who drove Lee’s car on the Baer Field Speedway circle for years. Lee’s immediate family and his racing family are stepping up to help him with medical bills as he fights pancreatic cancer. Jones is one of the five Lee siblings. “We’re all trying to do what we can,” she said. The family has enlisted Andy’s Knockout Chicken of New Haven for a Sunday, April 24, fundraiser.

Graduation sets milestone for East Allen University By Rod King

For Times Community Publications

East Allen University, which many thought was just an experiment when it opened its doors four years ago, is graduating its first class. All 77 members of the class will receive their high school diplomas. Of that number, 55 will also receive two-year associate degrees. EAU, located in the former Harding High School building, draws from all four East Allen County Schools high school attendance areas: Heritage, Leo, New Haven and Woodlan. The 55 will be presented their associate degrees at Vincennes University in Vincennes on April 30 and then join the rest of their classmates to receive their high school diplomas June 3. Principal Doug Hicks said “when we were investigating the possi-

bilities of starting such a program here, we chose Vincennes because of their experience. They were already partnering with Ben Davis University (High School) in Indianapolis on a very successful ‘early college high school’ program. We took that blueprint and put it in place here.” “I felt from the start that it had a good chance of being a success because no one around here has anything like it. Students can earn 60-plus college credits, get an associate degree in business, medical or liberal arts and at the same time get their high school diploma,” Hicks said. “In addition, all the credits are transferable. They can go to any public school in Indiana and if the course is on the CTL list (Core Transfer Library), they must accept the credits. “The beauty of this program is that colleges are looking for students

like these who can earn a high school diploma and an associate degree at the same time. Colleges want them because they are finishers, and schools receive money for students who complete their education and get a degree. One of our students is leaving here with 80 college credits and will probably finish her bachelor’s degree in another year-and-a-half. “Part of what makes East Allen University successful is what we don’t do. We don’t have sports teams, we don’t have a band, we don’t have a cheer leading squad and we don’t have theater. We concentrate on academics. Our courses are college level, and frankly it’s difficult.” Hicks said “cost-wise,

EAU is almost too good to be true.” “If a student qualifies for the free lunch program and lives in East Allen County, he or she automatically gets free tuition,” Hicks said. “Full-pay parents will spend less than $5,000 in a four-year period for 60-plus college credits, all high school courses and all textbooks. Those outside the district pay an extra fee of $100 a year and must provide their own transportation. It’s actually theft for college credits.” Hicks interviews each applicant and their parents. He and his staff have learned a lot during the past four years. “We didn’t realize until we were well into the second year that we were not

properly explaining to parents of prospective students just how difficult it is here for students,” he said. “Now they know more about the commitment because we do a better job of eliminating the mystery and thoroughly explaining their involvement so they can help their child succeed. “In addition, the first couple of classes didn’t have the support that we now offer. Vincennes University, for instance, now has five people here in the building, including dean, Dr. Odelet Nance, who help tutor students. Vincennes is totally invested. We’ve added a 70-minute study period every day where teachers are available to answer questions and assist students. If they’re not committed, they generally don’t stay.” “EAU is running really strong, but we haven’t peaked yet,” Hicks said. “We’ve raised the ceiling,

but have only scratched the surface of what we can be. Early College is typically a small environment that we call ‘small learning community.’ That’s why we look for 90 to 95 top students. By keeping our enrollment small, we can provide better customer service and have fewer dropouts.” Hicks and two staffers who were on the original committee – teacher Kevin Jehl and guidance counselor Tina Antrim – are thankful that they stayed committed to the program and saw it through. “We couldn’t guarantee how it would turn out, but we believed in the students and they believed in us. EAU has been a game changer for these students both academically and financially,” Hicks said. “We’re proud of those students who stuck it out. They’re leaving a great legacy for future classes.”

Chicken Whisperer offers advice on backyard flocks Flocks offer education, fresh eggs, nostalgia

By Garth Snow


Andy Schneider’s work keeps him on the road, so he can’t always tend a favorite hobby – raising chickens. Schneider finds satisfaction, though, in his chosen field – talking about raising chickens. The Chicken Whisperer will bring decades of know-how to rural New Haven next month. He will tell his story from 10 a.m.-noon Saturday, May 7, at Milan Center Feed & Grain, 15402 Doty Road. He also will take questions and sign and sell copies of his book, “The Chicken Whisperer’s Guide to Keeping Chickens.” Milan Center is one of 14 stops on Schneider’s six-state tour for Kalmbach Feeds. Cheryl Miller represents the marketing department of Kalmbach Feeds in Upper Sandusky, Ohio. “He keeps it very practical, down to earth,” Miller said. “His program is for all ages. He asks questions and hands out door prizes throughout the presentation. And you’ve got kids 5 years old shooting up their hands, as well as grandmas, so it’s a wide audience that he

relates to.” Schneider said people start chicken flocks for three main reasons. Researchers will spend weeks and months picking out the breeds that they want, factoring in the size and color of the eggs. Hobbyists driven by nostalgia will choose the breeds that their grandparents raised. Opportunists will walk into a feed store in the spring, cave in to pressure from the kids, and choose a few cute chicks. “All of them have the potential to have a successful backyard flock, and they’ll all have a good experience,” he said. “Scientifically, if you live in a cold, cold area, you might want to consider something more cold hardy, with smaller combs and wattles.” “There’s a little more to keeping backyard chickens than folks realize before they get started,” Schneider said in an interview. It’s more than tossing some corn onto the ground and watching chickens scratch, he said. “The No. 1 responsibility is protecting them from predators. That surprises people,” he said. That’s not just foxes and hawks. “Minks and weasels are some of the worst. They’re small and can gain access

to a lot of places,” he said. He’s been traveling with his family, promoting chickens and training humans, for about nine years. “My biggest concern is to make sure folks getting into the hobby have the right information to do it correctly,” he said. “There’s a lot of bad information out on the Internet, especially over the last five years. We try to be the medium between the experts and the families.” He said chickens and rabbits are a commitment, not an Easter basket surprise. “For years we’ve tried to get people to get away from buying animals as toys,” he said. Enjoy the backyard guests and the fresh eggs, but don’t be surprised by some veterinarian bills. Be familiar with resources at universities, with Extension agents and state poultry labs. “What if the chickens are sick? Is it more than you can handle? Are you willing to spend the money?” he said. “It’s very fascinating to me that they’ll go out and spend $2,000 on a coop, but when it comes down to spending some money on medication or taking them to the vet … for some people their health

plan for their chickens is an axe. “But for the people who have them as pets and they’re named, that’s not the answer.” Do some research, he said; have a plan in case the chickens fall sick. “It saves you money, it saves your time, it saves the chickens’ lives,” he said. “Some people say it’s just a $3 chicken, but if they figure the total cost it’s a lot more than just $3.” Schneider last kept chickens about four or five years ago. His neighbors cared for the flock while he was on the road. When he returned, he gave the chickens to the neighbor. When he takes an extended break from lectures and radio interviews, he will start some broilers or layers, and then donate them to the community. Backyard chickens offer several benefits, Schneider said. Some families raise chickens for the educational value. “They want their children to know where food comes from, what it takes to get from farm to table. The kids aren’t getting that in school,” he said. Even families without children want to know where their food is

raised. “They feel like by knowing what’s going into their chickens, they know what’s in their chickens,” he said. “They want their eggs to travel 15 feet and not 1,500 miles to their table.” Chickens contribute to composting. “They’ll eat just about anything off your plate that you don’t finish, so it eliminates a lot of biowaste,” said Schneider, cautioning that a chicken’s diet should include no more than 10 percent scraps. Chickens contribute fertilizer for the compost pile, he said. “You can do nothing with cat poop, nothing. But people actually purchase chicken poop,” he said. “They’re an all-natural

insect control. They’ll eat just about anything they can get their little beaks on,” Schneider said. “For a lot of people, chickens can and do make great pets. People get home from a stressful day, get a favorite beverage, and just watch the chickens and the pecking order and their personalities,” he said. “His point is, there’s no right or wrong,” Miller said. “Whatever enjoyment you get out of your chickens, that’s what we’re going to promote. “We’ve come full circle on our great-grandparents, how they raised their own food and got away from it, and how we now have slowed down a little bit and we want that back.”

The group will work from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Other community volunteers are welcome. “If you set your GPS to 800 Glasgow Ave. then you can definitely find me, because that is our largest event,” King said. This is Save Maumee’s most popular annual event, raising public awareness about the need for healthy rivers. Volunteers will plant native tree species funded by a grant through the U.S. Forest Service as part of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. “The grant is for about $38,000 worth of trees,” King said. “Save Maumee is committed to keeping the Maumee River clean, so it can be a resource for us – and future generations. Planting a tree and participating in a river cleanup is one way that citizens can do their part for the river we all love,” said Lydia LaMont, Save Maumee president. “Rivers connect us to each other, to nature, and to future generations. It is wonderful to see so many people in Fort Wayne and across the country taking action to protect and restore their rivers and clean water,” said Bob Irvin, president of American Rivers. “We applaud the work of Save Maumee for the work they do on behalf of the river and the community.” The purpose of Save Maumee Grassroots Organization is to preserve, protect and improve the ecosystems of the Upper Maumee River and watershed by increasing public awareness through advocacy, collaboration, education and hands-on projects.

Sesquicentennial chooses logo, commemorative coin

By Rod King

For Times Community Publications

Activities for New Haven’s 150th anniversary are moving ahead swiftly. The committee unveiled its logo and the commemorative coin design at the mayor’s State-of-the-City speech at the Orchid Reception Hall. New Haven resident and committee member Sarah Arnold designed the logo and the coin. The bronze colored coin, which will be one and three-quarters-inches in diameter, has the logo on one side and a replica of a canal boat on the flip side.

Sesquicentennial committee chairperson, Sue Platt, said the coin will be available for $10 early in June at the office of the Chamber of Commerce, a number of local businesses and on the website, nh150.com. It will also be available during Canal Days from June 7-11, at the July 7 birthday celebration in Schnelker Park and during the annual New Haven Homecoming activities Sept. 29 and Oct. 1. “We’re looking forward to the July 7 150th birthday party.

Lions benefit nets $1,300 for hospital burn council The New Haven Lions Club presented a check for $1,300 to the Burn Council at Saint Joseph Hospital in Fort Wayne. The check represents the profits from a benefit skating party held at Bell’s Roller Skating Rink, 7009 Indiana 930, in New Haven, on Feb. 13. Dr. Kevin Berning accepted the check on behalf of the burn center, where he is the director. Lions Club President James Rorick thanked Berning for his work for the burn center board and

for burn survivors. The burn council was created in 2001 as a charity to help families with loved ones in the burn center. The burn council provides hospitality suites to families of patients being cared for at the downtown Fort Wayne burn center. The suites offer a place for families to rest, reflect and regroup. Families can sleep, eat, shower and wash clothes only a few steps away from the patients’ rooms.

According to Rose Fritzinger, the director of the East Allen County Educational Foundation, the dinner/auction still has more tables to set. “We’ve already exceeded the largest event in the past, so we’re excited about that,� Fritzinger said. Thanks to the new venue at the Mirro Center, the fundraiser can expand into adjacent space. The program will be from 6-9 p.m. Friday, May 20. NFL analyst and former Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday will bring the keynote address. Fritzinger’s agency will continue accepting reservations until noon Tuesday, May

10. RSVP to Fritzinger at (260) 446-0135, or email rfritzinger@eacs.k12. inus. Seats are $30 per person, or $50 for two persons, or $200 for a table for eight. The Mirro Center is at the Parkview North Campus. The Foundation funds the Dual Credit/ Collegiate Connection program. “It’s a reimbursement program for juniors and seniors still enrolled at East Allen who successfully complete dual credit college coursework,� Fritzinger said. More than 900 students at East Allen University, and Heritage, Leo, New Haven and Woodlan high schools have benefited from the program. “We also help to recognize the teachers of the year here at East Allen and annually that’s up to $250 in classroom materials for our building level teachers of the year,� Fritzinger

said. At least 15 teachers receive those awards, and preschool and other programs might bring the number to 17. The Foundation relies on the annual fundraiser and other contributions. “A couple people who want to remain anonymous have given at the $1,000 level, but the donations are mostly through corporate sponsorship,� Fritzinger said. Saturday, the keynote speaker, attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He played in the NFL from 1998 to 2013, and was a four-time All Pro and a six-time Pro Bowler. “Jeff has a deep appreciation for educators – especially for teachers,� the Foundation said in a statement. “His connection with and respect for educators begins with his family.� Auction items include packages to the Grand Hotel on Mackinac

chapter. A number of teams already have been formed and are collecting and raising money through donations and sponsorships. The Fort Wayne chapter also is set to host an official kickoff from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 16, at Crazy Pinz, 1414 Northland Blvd. The kickoff

Focus on Health offers free or low-cost exams

By Garth Snow


Focus on Health is offering about 20 health screenings at several local venues. The screenings are offered free or at a reduced cost. The screenings began April 13. The last stop will be at New Haven High School on Saturday, April 23. “It’s better to detect issues before symptoms appear, so you can have the opportunity to prevent progression of the disease before it leads to more complications,” said Judy Nix, the Parkview nurse who coordinates the program. “Sometimes people just don’t want to know. They think they’re better off that way, and they’re really not.” Nix said even people who have health insurance can save money on

the tests. One man whose health plan has a $4,000 deductible determined he would pay $100 for tests that otherwise would cost him $900, Nix said. “Focus on Health is very nominal, very inexpensive, and it gives a wide range of information,” Nix said. “Everything but the lab work is free, and the labs are very inexpensive.” Free health checks include blood pressure, visual acuity, bone density, hearing, and checking height and weight to calculate body mass index. Select sites may offer oral, skin and foot screenings, and mammography by Francine’s Friends. Each patient receives a summary and possibly a referral. Lab tests include Chem 17 and Chem 30 tests, which measure glucose, liver function, kidney

pretty.� The younger Ball had asked both his legendary father and Haigh what topic he should cover in his Rotary address. Haigh had asked about basketball, the sport that the gangly high school senior passed up to make a career in volleyball. “I love basketball as much as volleyball today,� Ball said. “I still play in 40-and-over pickup leagues. And growing up in Indiana and being 6-8 you’re just expected to be a basketball player.� He realized his preference for volleyball by age 4, he said. “So I’m sitting there and we’re playing volleyball in our house. And in those days my dad would blow up balloons, we would take the cushions off the sofa – much to Mom’s dismay – and we would hit it back and forth. “I remember sitting there in front of the old Zenith, the kind with four channels, and watching the ’84 Olympic team win a gold medal in L.A., and Chris Marlowe, backup center, running around the court with the American flag. I remember turning to my dad and saying, ‘I’d like to do that, I think, Dad.’ � The Olympian said his father never pushed him toward volleyball, not even on the eve of Ball’s announcement one morning in his senior year at Woodlan High School. Coach Bobby Knight had come to Woodlan to watch Ball play basketball. Ball had been to Indiana University, for his only basketball recruiting trip. “I sat down the night before at a table with my sister, mom and my dad, and I said, ‘Dad, I’ve got this press conference tomorrow and I’ve got

to make a decision. I still don’t know what to do. Of course pray on it, absolutely,� Ball said. “Dad turns to me and looks me straight in the eyes and says, ‘I think you’d be a fool not to play for Coach Knight.’ “I went to that press conference and said ‘I’m gonna play for the best man I know, Arnie Ball.’ � Ball said Knight is “an amazing man, one of my favorite coaches of all time.� “I made a tough decision,� he said. “I made one that a lot of people don’t agree with, one that has given me an amazing, blessed life. I went to IPFW, graduated with an IU degree in general studies, met my wife there. We’ve been together 25 years, two beautiful kids, moved back here when I retired, moved up to Angola, got Mom and Dad right there. It’s the life I always wanted. And basketball didn’t offer that to me, but volleyball did. And I’m still very passionate about it.� Lloy continues his volleyball career as Angola High School’s new varsity volleyball coach. “I can honestly say that my dad never really pushed me in any direction – academically, volleyball, basketball – any of those things,� Ball said. “What he did, and what I try to do with my children, is to offer opportunities and support to things that I was passionate about.� Arnie and Lloy are available for speaking engagements, and usually address student-athletes. “Sometimes we go into places of business and talk about team cohesion, teamwork, which also applies from the court into the business world,� Ball said.

April flight brings change to HFNEI leadership Honor Flight Northeast Indiana will make its 19th flight to Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, April 27. HFNEI President Bob Myer said, “Although we thought we had pretty much exhausted our World War II applications, we are very excited that we will have 50 well-deserving World War II veterans on our April flight. This is double the number we had on our last flight.” Honor Flight NEI has flown over 1,200 World War II veterans to Washington, D.C., from Fort Wayne since the group’s inaugural trip in May 2009. Flight 19 includes one married couple who both served in the Korean War, and one veteran who served in both World War II and Korea. There will also be three additional female veterans on board,

all from World War II. A 98-year-old veteran will also be participating. The spring flights accompany a change in HFNEI leadership. Current President Bob Myer and his wife, Sandie, have announced their intention to resign their board positions. Both plan to stay heavily involved as volunteers for Honor Flight. At a board meeting, Dennis Covert was voted in as new president. This change will become effective June 1. Covert will train with Myer during the spring flights. Myer was a fighter pilot who retired as a colonel after 32 years of active service with the Air National Guard. He and Sandie have been involved with HFNEI for six years. Bob took the helm as president in 2012. Covert is a Navy

combat veteran of the Vietnam War and has been involved with Honor Flight Northeast Indiana for five years. Covert has traveled on the last 14

Smith Field flight rallies test Young Eagles’ wings Young people ages 8-17 may get a bird’s-eye view of the area thanks to the Experimental Aircraft Association. EAA Chapter 2 will host a Young Eagles Flight Rally at Smith Field Airport, 426 W. Ludwig Road, Fort Wayne, beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday, May 14. The free rides will be aboard general aviation aircraft. The Young Eagles Program was created to spark young people’s interest in aviation. Pilots hope to give the next generation a chance to learn more about the possibilities in aviation. Pilots will also explain more about their airplanes, allowing young people to discover how airplanes work and how pilots ensure safety as the prime concern before every flight. Each pilot volunteers their time and aircraft so the flights

can be provided without charge. Following the flight, each young person will receive a certificate making them an official Young Eagle; a log book to record their flight and future flights; free access to Sporty’s Complete Flight Training Course; free EAA student membership until age 19; free Academy of Model Aeronautics student membership; and other benefits. Their name will then be entered into the “World’s Largest Logbook,” which is on permanent display at the EAA Air Adventure Museum in Oshkosh, Wis., and accessible online at youngeagles. org. Those attending the flight rally are asked to come to the southeast corner of the airport off Ludwig Road at 9 a.m. to register for their flight. A parent or guardian must

Canterbury to welcome Fifth House Ensemble The Canterbury School Fine Arts Department will host Chicago’s Fifth House Ensemble on Thursday, April 28, for a day of training and performance. 5HE, as the group is known, will offer a public

performance at 7 p.m. that evening at Canterbury’s Summers Auditorium, 3210 Smith Road, Fort Wayne. Tickets are on sale for $20 for adults; $10 for students. Tickets can be bought at canterburyschool.org/arts-luna.

Canterbury students will benefit from a full day of residency activities, including a graphic notation workshop with older students that allows expression of sounds outside the usual “musical notation” constraints, and

a “music as storytelling” workshop for younger students. Concert-goers are invited to join the students before the concert at 6:30 p.m. for a performance of their work from the day’s residency activities. In the “Luna de

Cuernos” chamber music event, 5HE has created a silent movie of sorts by collaborating with writer and artist Sarah Becon to bring to life a modern interpretation of a Puerto Rican folk tale. Becon’s graphic novel is displayed

on screen during the performance, accompanied by five members of 5HE. Fifth House Ensemble entertains on Chicago stages and unexpected venues including aquariums, train stations and bars.

Track opens April 16; fans watch for free By Garth Snow gsnow@kpcmedia.com

Auto racing fans were promised a free night at the track last year, but rain closed the Baer Field track that final evening. Dave Muzzillo is keeping that promise, even if it’s in a new season and at a track with a new name. “We promised a free night of racing, so why not make it opening night?” Muzzillo said. Baer Field Motorsports Park will welcome fans at 4 p.m. Saturday, April 16, at 4331 Winters Road, in south Fort Wayne. The Fan Appreciation Day show begins at 4 p.m. After opening night, admission is $13. “The first three races, the green flag falls at 4 o’clock. We try to get done before the sun goes down so people don’t get cold,” Muzzillo said. Beginning May 7, the

LEE from Page A1 of Indiana 930, in New Haven. From 11 a.m.-3 p.m., the public may drive in to pay $10 for a half-chicken with potatoes. Andy’s, the repeat winner of Taste of New Haven, grills chicken in a mobile cooker. Jones works in that administration office. Lee lives in the former Harding High School attendance area, within Fort Wayne city limits. One of his three grown sons is staying with him during his illness. Lee’s racing friends will hold a separate fundraiser Sunday, April 17, at Wings Etc., 6247

flag falls at 6:30 p.m. Muzzillo and his wife, Jody Muzzillo, are the proprietors. “She runs the place when I’m not here,” Muzzillo said. “This is my second year, but I actually used to come out here as a kid and watch racing,” Muzzillo said. “I grew up around all kinds of racetracks.” The retired driver said his new calling is in officiating and organizing. Baer Field has survived 52 seasons, he said. Tracks once were common in midsize markets and even smaller towns. “They’re closing up, and it’s a shame because they’re not building any more new tracks. Support your local racetrack, whether it’s at Kokomo or Angola,” he said. “We’ve actually got over 120 people registered to race out here this year,” Muzzillo said. “That’s unheard

of in this economy. The economy hurt racing back in ’08 or ’09.” “We have the largest entry list that the speedway has had in 15 years,” Muzzillo said. “We have people coming all the way from Indianapolis, and then we have some guys who haven’t raced for 13 or 14 years that are coming back out to race,” he said. “There’s something special going on here.” It’s expensive, even for successful crews. “It’s $700 to win the main feature, and it’s $500 for a set of tires. So a guy would have to win the race just to break even on his expenses,” Muzzillo said. “They’ll never earn it back.” “A race car can be up to $100,000,” Muzzillo said. “Those are the nice cars, but most of these guys usually average around $35,000 for a car.” Drivers from Indiana,

Michigan and Ohio come to Fort Wayne as part of International Championship Auto Racing’s Top Speed Modified Tour. The 2016 Southern Division season began April 3 at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis. “We had 28 entries for the weekend, and we had cars from clear to northern Michigan and North Carolina,” Muzzillo said. For the season schedule and other news, visit topspeedmods.com. “The driver safety and the fan safety is always No. 1,” Muzzillo said. “We’ve installed a new, lower fence to keep the cars and karts away from the spectators if an incident would happen. All of my safety crew are EMTs. We go above and beyond safety here.” About 1,200 fans turn out on the average night, usually from within a 25-mile radius of the speedway.

Bluffton Road, Fort Wayne. A silent auction of racing items and gift certificates runs from noon-6 p.m. The restaurant will donate a portion of the day’s sales. “They will contribute 15 percent of the bill if you mention Tom Lee’s name,” Bonar said. The restaurant is open 11 a.m.-10 p.m. that day. Jones said her brother is a mechanic by trade and also has been a mechanic at the racetrack. Lee has been battling cancer for over a year. “He tried driving in his younger years,” Bonar said of Lee. “He’s been

an owner and a mentor. He gave me pointers on how to drive, and he was the mechanic, the fabricator. He would always give even competitors his knowledge and help everybody out, because he wanted to see all the cars as competitive as possible.” “He’s great. He has taught me so much,” Bonar said. “He’s taught me mechanics. He’s taught me fabrication. He’s taught me respect. “He helped my dad out years ago when my dad was racing at a young age. He was a crew member for him, and I’ve kept with Tom since then.”

The Fort Wayne track, renamed Baer Field Motorsports Park, opens the season April 16. That’s also the date of the NASCAR Xfinity 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tenn. “Last year, when Tom first got sick, we all rented an RV and took Tom down there,” Bonar said. “Now we’re trying to bring all the racing community together to raise money to donate.” Bonar began working with Lee in 2002, and continued on Lee’s team until illness forced Lee to sell the car. “I still call him a member of the team,” Bonar said.


Baer Field Motorsports Park, 4331 Winters Road, Fort Wayne, offers varied programs several nights a week. For a full listing, visit baerfieldmotorpark.com. “When he have a big show like Outlaw Wings sprint cars, we get them from as far as Pennsylvania,” Muzzillo said. The track also schedules drifting once a year, and this year’s Baer Bash is on Sunday, April 17. Spectators pay $10. Kids 12 and under are admitted free. Gates open at 9 a.m. For details, follow baerfieldmotorpark.com. In drifting, sports cars slide through the corners. “There’s a lot of smoke and a lot of car control. It’s on the edge of disaster. It’s really, really neat,” Muzzillo

said. He predicted about 90 cars will share in the drift. The more general name reflects the more diverse program at Baer Field. “We have five racetracks now,” Muzzillo said.

New Haven teacher earns Junior Achievement honor Kent Goeglein, from New Haven High School, has been awarded this year’s Helene R. Foellinger Award for Excellence in Economic Education from Junior Achievement of Northern Indiana. Goeglein was recognized for his commitment to his profession and students and teaching the economic principles of the free enterprise system. In addition to the award, he received a green jacket, an honorarium and becomes a representative for excellence in economic education and Junior Achievement programs. The Foellinger Award is presented annually to one economics teacher selected from across northern Indiana. During his 14 years with Junior Achievement, Goeglein has hosted 89 JA Economics programs. JA Economics examines the fundamental concepts of micro, macro and international economics. Longtime JA classroom volunteer, Tahl

Glass of Harris Corp., said, “Kent has a passion for economics and you can see it in the way he participates in the JA exercises. He really wants the kids in his class to understand that economics and personal finance will play a huge role in their futures.” In addition to the Foellinger Award, Junior Achievement recognized Kameron Meyer of Heritage High School with the Dale W. McMillen Award for pioneering spirit and Jeanne Andersen of Westview High School with the Dr. John Manzer Award. Superintendent Dr. Kenneth Folks said, “East Allen County Schools is delighted with the partnership we share with Junior Achievement of Northern Indiana. An important component of this partnership is the opportunity to participate in its annual Educator Enrichment Conference. Educators appreciate being offered professional development opportunities such

as these to learn how to better serve our students and our community. An exciting conclusion to the conference each year is the awards ceremonies recognizing the contributions made by teachers in the classroom. I greatly appreciated JANI recognizing two EACS teachers at this year’s conference for their excellence in the classroom.” The awards were presented March 16 at the 29th annual Junior Achievement Educator Enrichment Conference in Fort Wayne. The event, titled “Workforce Reinvented,” allowed educators to learn from and ask questions of eight HR panelists representing varying industries in the area. “Each year, we look for a relevant topic or current economic issue that affects all of us. Human Resources is something that we all need to invest our time and energy into to make sure we are preparing our young adults for the next phase of their lives,”
