Strengthening the community through diversity and inclusion %\ 5$< %$/2*+ 6WDII :ULWHU Sometimes the best solutions are the easiest ones. At least the first steps can be. Warsaw attorney Travis McConnell serves as president of One Warsaw, a nonprofit granted 501(c)(3) status Jan. 23, 2019, whose “goal is to connect and share ideas, events and diversity initiatives in our community.” McConnell recommends strengthening a community through the simple precept of reaching out to the folks next door. “I think diversity and inclusion are extremely important. If people would just take time to know their neighbors they would find they have more in common than they don’t,” he said. One Warsaw hails itself as “a group of individuals who really care about celebrating all and know that we have to take action within our community to make a difference,” according to onewarsaw.org. The organization holds several events a year, such as Celebrate Us, a summer diversity festival in downtown Warsaw; and Juneteenth activities, including a banquet at Center Lake Pavilion. One Warsaw also strives to perpetuate meaningful dialogue through BeKind Talks, “a series of discussions where we sit with members of our community to talk about current issues with racism and how to be anti-racist. We speak with members of faith

backgrounds and various professions that have experience and a unique perspective and considerations on these issues,” according to the organization’s website. The organization’s board members work together and speak with one heart. Jama Brown shared her vision of the group’s work. “Diversity is an asset and inclusion is a strength. Warsaw and our communities are made better because of the people we live next to, work with, coach with and pray with. Making all feel welcome and included makes our community richer and better.” Heather Lardino said, “I believe everyone deserves the right to feel safe and accepted regardless of any part of their person and we can only have a united community when we understand and learn to respect each other’s differences. I am a part of One Warsaw to educate, celebrate and learn from others. Together we can make a difference.” “Communities are stronger when they motivate and inspire others to participate, be kind, helpful and inclusive,” noted fellow board member Suzanne Clayton. Board member Lyle Schrock grew up on a farm outside of New Paris, being raised in a culture different from that of urban Warsaw. Because of his experiences, “I have seen the need to be kind and understanding of all people. We do not have to agree but we can respect them for their perspective

and thoughts.” One Warsaw’s next big event is Feria Guadalupana, or Guadalupe Festival, a collaborative effort with Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, or Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, 225 Gilliam Drive, Warsaw, just west of SR 15 north of town. The festival, which is free to the public, will run from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13, as a primarily cultural celebration, “with a whole bunch of great food,” said McConnell. “It’s the best food you’ve ever had, if you like Mexican food,” he said. Various charities will staff informational booths. Scheduled attendees include Bowen Center, Language Matters, One Warsaw, Old National Bank and the Law Office of Travis J. McConnell. Other activities will include music, audience participation folk dancing, kid’s games and a rematch of last year’s inaugural event: a water balloon fight between the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office and the Warsaw Police Department, with kids providing the bulk of the skirmish forces. “Basically, last year the kids and the police department ganged up on the sheriff,” said McConnell. For more information, visit onewarsaw.org or facebook.com/ onewarsaw or email info@onewarsaw.org. Tax-deductible donations may be sent to One Warsaw at 116 N. Buffalo St., Warsaw, IN 46580.

KNOW YOUR NEIGHBOR

Principal led to education through relationships %\ /$85,( /(&+/,71(5 6WDII :ULWHU “Becoming a teacher and then a principal may have happened by chance,” stated Troy Akers, Warsaw. “When I was a high school student in Elida, Ohio, I disliked study hall. I was always trying to get out of the class. “One day I was strolling down the hall after cutting the class and was met by a teacher, Mrs. Beverly Joseph. I really didn’t know her at all. I thought I was in real trouble. But instead of taking me to the principal’s office, she ushered me upstairs to the special needs resource center that I didn’t know existed. “She offered me the opportunity to become a peer tutor to seventh- and eighth-grade students. From that time on, special needs students have become my heroes.” It all started and has continued with relationships. Akers graduated from Anderson University with a degree in special education. He started his teaching career as a special education teacher in the Churubusco School Corporation. He earned a master’s degree in special education from Ball State University. “The superintendent who hired me moved to the Wawasee School Corporation and thought I might enjoy living and working in Kosciusko County. I moved

to North Webster and taught high school special education students.” Akers then began work at an alternative school for at-risk students. “I was the first person to direct this program in Wawasee Schools.” When he was interviewing for a position at Warsaw High School, he thought it was for a special education spot. “Instead, I spent three years as the attendance coordinator. I was the one who went after kids who skipped school and brought them back. Every once in a while, I’ll run into one of those students in the community working, parenting and leading productive lives. They’ll thank me for not letting them drop out of school.” He earned his principal licensure from IPFW. “I was an assistant principal at Warsaw for 12 years. I’ve been the building principal for the past 14 years.” His career as an educator spans 37 years. “I have a marvelous group of staff members. I’m blessed to have four assistant principals. The administration, counselors, support staff and teachers are fabulous. I love our students and I especially like visiting our STARR kids.” One of the things Akers likes best about being a principal is his interaction with a wide

variety of people. “I’m proud to serve in the Warsaw community. We have good community involvement with great academic opportunities for kids. We’re not just a 7:30 to 3 academic environment. We have many afterschool programs including career opportunities, athletics, music and clubs. It’s a great place for a young person to grow up.” Akers’ wife, Tracey, is the school nurse coordinator. They will celebrate their 37th anniversary this year. They have two adult children and one granddaughter, Thea, who is 3 1/2. “I get to see Thea every day. She’s a student in our Warsaw Area Career Center day care program.” Akers concluded, “I have the privilege of going to school every day while others go to work. And I’m happy to say that I learn something new each day. It’s all about relationships.”

a nutritious diet. Make sure to consume all five food groups, including dairy, meat/poultry, vegetables, fruit and grain, on a daily basis. By continuously having a balanced diet, we set ourselves up for overall better eating habits and a healthy lifestyle. Many fruits and vegetables get their color from naturally occurring micronutrients. The vitamins that come from these foods are essential for healthy habits. Some of the nutrients and vitamins found in fruits and vegetables range from Vitamin A, C, and E. Most of these fruits and vegetables carry antioxidants, but they don’t affect the coloring of the food. Fruits and vegetables come in many shapes, sizes and colors. Did you know certain natural colors of foods carry specific health benefits? Some plants carry phytochemicals that are responsible for these health benefits. We can break the phytochemicals down by color. Red foods contain lycopene, which is beneficial for the heart and prevents the risk of stroke. Orange and yellow foods contain carotenoids, which helps our immune system and decreases inflammation. Green foods contain lutein, which keeps our bones, teeth and nails strong and protects our eyes by preventing cataracts. Blue and purple foods contain anthocyanins, which help with memory and reduce blood pressure. White and tan foods contain allicin, which helps with lowering cholesterol and blood pressure levels. It also keeps our bones strong. These are just a few benefits that can be found with each phytochemical. Some benefits can overlap or be seen with multiple colors. Everyone is encouraged to make half of their plate fruits and vegetables at every meal. Try and make it fun by adding new seasonings if the same things get boring. You can cut fruit into different shapes or add a new seasoning to your vegetable for a different flavor, all while making sure to get your nutrients in.

The Salvation Army and Walmart in Warsaw are partnering to collect school supplies, socks and underwear for children K-12 going back to school in Kosciusko County. Containers are located at each entrance of Walmart, 2501 Walton Blvd., Warsaw. The event has traditionally been called “Stuff the Bus” as people have purchased items for families in need. “We see many single parents and grandparents who come in needing help with children who are in their household,” noted Envoy Sina Locke, corps administrator. “Socks and underwear are especially helpful as parents, guardians and grandparents are trying to make ends meet as prices have risen.” The containers will be at the entrances until Aug. 15.

County Coordinator Amy Roe, who is leading the H.E.L.P. Kosciusko program. Leaders with H.E.L.P. have worked diligently to ensure voices from all areas of the county have been heard, particularly in the county’s smaller rural communities of Etna Green, Mentone, Milford and Pierceton, who agreed to participate with the county, collectively, in the H.E.L.P. program. Data was collected in a number of ways to reach a wider audience, including four Art Infused events where community members were invited to share feedback in person while doing hands-on art projects for their communities; an online survey shared via a variety of digital channels; and a countywide community engagement event. Around 350 responses were collected from communities throughout Kosciusko County from the community engagement activities. Additional highlights from the data collection are included below. These highlights show how respondents in participating communities prioritized the four pathways/focus areas in their own communities: Milford: 46 % of respondents said enhancing quality of place and promoting community wellness are most important to them; strengthening local economies, 4%, and advancing e-connectivity, 4%. Etna Green: 43% of respondents said enhancing quality of place is most important to them; promoting community wellness, 38%; strengthening local economies, 14%; and advancing e-connectivity, 5%.

Kosciusko County leaders recently announced they’ve collected and analyzed all data from participating community members for the community engagement phase of the Hoosier Enduring Legacy Program and will share insight on next steps for the program. As a recap of the program, Kosciusko County was one of three communities selected by the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs to participate in the first cohort of the H.E.L.P. program. H.E.L.P. assists and equips rural communities with developing Strategic Investment Plans, culminating in a legacy project for each community focused on at least one of four community development pathways or focus areas: advancing e-connectivity, enhancing quality of place, promoting community wellness and strengthening local economies. The second phase of the program focused on engaging community members and gathering input about priorities for community development and project ideas within the four focus areas. “We’re extremely pleased about the participation and variety of ideas we received from local community members,” said Kosciusko

Buhrt Builders celebrating 75th anniversary %\ /$85(1 =(8*1(5 6WDII :ULWHU Buhrt Builders Inc. has been part of the Syracuse community for 75 years and the Buhrt family celebrated with a ribboncutting Friday, July 15, and a special boat cruise on the Lilly Pad for employees, subcontractors and their families Saturday, July 16. Customers who live around the lake Buhrt Builders have worked for over the years were asked if they would post a sign in their lakeside yard on Saturday for the cruise. Ray Buhrt started the business after World War II. At the time, Ray owned a lumberyard with a partner, then started doing construction and remodeling projects out of his house. In 1958 Ray purchased two lots on Huntington Street for $3,000 and then spent $21,000 constructing a building and pole barn for his business. He even built his house on Waco Drive. When Ray did a project, he was known to be on the job site right from the beginning. “He would do a lot of work himself, and when needed, he would subcontract trades,” explained Matt. “He was a perfectionist and wanted to do the work himself.” Ray passed the business on to his son, Mike, although he didn’t completely retire. He would come back on occasion to assist with jobs or do some intricate woodworking when needed for a job. Ray passed away in 2009. “Ray was a perfectionist and she (Leona, Ray’s wife) was customer service,” Matt’s wife, Jennifer, explained. Mike and Sandee ran the business successfully, producing

They asked their nephew, Matt, and his wife, Jennifer, if they’d like to purchase the business. Matt worked for his dad, Dennis, at Buhrt Engineering for 18 years in metal fabrication, estimating and job coordination and saw this as a good opportunity to buy into a successful business. “One of the things that appealed to us was that the end of a job didn’t mean the end of a relationship with the customer,” Matt said in a 2009 interview. “We appreciate that this business has been built on repeat customers and referrals. It’s a testament to the quality of work

Mike put in, and my grandpa before him.” “We just like helping customers,” Matt said. “A lot of people around the lake are expanding their home for their kids and grandkids. We enjoy doing the work and having our new homes or renovations last for generations.” They’ve also had some customers they worked for, for the first time, be visibly shocked when they see the result of Buhrt’s work. “It’s a wonderful thing, “ Jennifer said, explaining the relationship starts there. Buhrt Builders has grown to a staff of six full-time carpenters, four full-time office staff, one part-time estimator and one part-time property manager. Throughout its history, Buhrt Builders has focused on working in residential rather than commercial building in Kosciusko County. The business has not only done projects around the lakes, but also in Warsaw, Winona Lake and as far south as Crystal Lake. Buhrt Builders is a general contracting company that prides

Nappanee teen’s artwork wins national recognition Artwork created by a member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart County’s Nappanee Clubhouse has won national recognition. Sam Newcomer, 14, created a watercolor piece which is being recognized by the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s “National Fine Arts Competition” in the 13-15 age group. The piece features original characters with a Halloween theme. “It’s so wonderful that Nappanee has an artist like this to represent our club at this level,” said Bethany Cornell, art supervisor. “We are so proud of Sam,” said Nappanee Area Director Mandy Gerber. “It’s important for kids to express creative energy and Sam is so creative. It’s great to get acknowledgement for all that hard work.” Newcomer said art provides unique opportunities to influence others in unexpected ways. “There are different aspects. With one person, you can tell a story through the art. With a color you can give someone else a feeling. With someone else you might do both.” Newcomer said art can accomplish a number of things. “Number one, I get a finished piece that is fun to look at. I can also vent through silly little lines on a page. It’s kind of like being a master illusionist.” Newcomer said the winning painting was inspired by the Halloween theme. “It’s easy for me to go off

themes. So, I did a character based off myself and one that was random.” Cornell said the painting will be showcased across the country to help the public understand what Boys & Girls Clubs programs are offering members. “Sam is an independent creator and has developed such a unique style. It’s so cool. It’s not just a drawing. Sam creates these friends of sorts,” Cornell said. While developing skills in the field, Newcomer is also engaging with younger members as they learn to create their styles. “Sam has been willing to help others with difficult concepts. Sometimes it’s as simple as sitting down with them and saying, ‘Look at my hand’ if they’re trying to draw a hand,” Cornell said. Gerber hopes Newcomer’s recognition sparks others at the club to pursue their passion. “Getting national recognition is a big deal for Sam and the club. I hope it inspires other members to participate in things like the National Fine Art Show.” The Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart County began operations in 1956. The clubs provide programming and services for the most at-risk boys and girls within the community. Each day, the clubs provide powerful relationships with the youth they serve and open avenues of opportunity for young people across their community by offering safe places where young people can learn, grow and succeed.

Surprising hidden artist: acclaimed actor Dennis Hopper The next celebrity to explore in our series is the critically acclaimed actor, Dennis Hopper. He was born May 17, 1936, in Dodge City, Kan. During his childhood, Hopper took art lessons at the Nelson-Atkins Museum and these lessons sparked a lifetime of interest in photography, painting and sculpting, with him ultimately becoming prolific in all three. When Hopper was 13, his family moved to San Diego, Calif. In high school he participated in theater, drama and speech, and was voted “Most Likely to Succeed.” After graduating, he attended Kansas City Art Institute and then attended the Actor’s Studio and made a name for himself with roles in films such as “Rebel Without A Cause” (1955) and “Giant” (1956). As Hopper gained more success in acting, he developed quite a large ego and became such a problem he was blacklisted in Hollywood. It wasn’t until 1965 when Hopper was offered a role in the movie “The

Sons of Katie Elder” (1965) that allowed him to make a comeback. John Wayne starred in the movie and generously saw to it Hopper had the opportunity to act again. Building on this benevolence from Wayne, Hopper was able to restart his career and become a successful actor. From 1958 to 1965, while Hopper wasn’t acting, he focused on painting and photography. An unfortunate fire in 1961 destroyed his home in Bel Air and he lost over 300 pieces of artwork. Hopper’s wife bought him a camera after the fire, and he began shooting street photography and portraits of celebrities for Vogue and other magazines, becoming a celebrated photographer. Between the years of 1960-1967, he created over 18,000 photographs. During this time, he was also painting and began collecting artwork to display in his home, and eventually amassed a large holding of 20th and 21st century art. Hopper began experimenting with street photography, and evolved into photographing ce-

United Way and Bowen Health Clinic are leading the 2022 Big Give drive to collect 2,000-plus bags of school supplies for local elementary schools. Each year, United Way organizes the Big Give to help families in the community prepare for school. The goal is to raise 100 bags of school supplies for every elementary school. It is easy to get involved and make a big difference for kids across Kosciusko and Whitley counties. United Way has prepared bags for each grade level that include a tag listing what items should go inside. Community members just need to pick up a bag, fill it and return it to United Way. This project is perfect for a business, church, friend group or family to take part in. Just pick the number of bags you want to fill and shop for school supplies. “Every day, people ask me how they can help children in our community,” said Darren Bickel, president of United Way. “Big Give is a straightforward way you can let a child know that someone cares about them.” Bags can be requested at uwwk. org or picked up at the United Way office, 119 E.

lebrities, with one of his first accomplishments being the design of the cover art for the Ike and Tina Turner album “River Deep – Mountain High” (released in 1966). He created intimate and unguarded portraits of celebrities such as Andy Worhol, Jane Fonda, The Byrds, James Brown and many more. These portraits became the subject of several books, including “1712 North Crescent.” The title of the book refers to the house where Hopper lived with his first wife, Brooke Hayward, in the Hollywood Hills in the 1960s. The book was edited by Hopper’s daughter Marin Hopper and published in 2001. German film director Wim Wenders said of Hopper that if “he’d only been a photographer, he’d be one of the great photographers in the 20th century.” One day when Hopper was driving through Los Angeles, he pulled up to a multi-way intersection where lights and directional signs and billboards were jockeying for his attention, and straight ahead of him were two “Standard” signs, the kind that used to appear at a gas station.

chambers across the state for their accomplishments. The Kosciusko Chamber was awarded for creating entertaining marketing, specifically their comedic Instagram Reels that have reached nearly 10 million people on social media so far in 2022. They also received an award for partnering with one of their members, Kensington Digital Media, to host Bizz Buzz, a weekend radio show featuring three Kosciusko County businesses each week. Their third award recognized them for providing the only fingerprinting location in Kosciusko County. In the last year, the chamber staff has fingerprinted over 3,000 people, helping them gain employment. At the ICEA annual conference last week, the Kosciusko Chamber of Commerce was also recognized as a top finalist for the Indiana Chamber of the Year for the second year in a row. The Kosciusko Chamber finished in second place both years. Chamber President and CEO Rob Parker said, “The Kosciusko Chamber is blessed to have such a great team of individuals on its staff. This recognition from ICEA reflects the professionalism, creativity and excellence delivered by the team every day. I could not be more proud of their dedication to serving our members in such innovative, caring and dynamic ways.”

Garatoni School helps small business owners thrive Ivy Tech launched the new Garatoni School of Entrepreneurship and Innovation in the fall of 2021, and it is already making a difference for Indiana entrepreneurs. The Garatoni School of Entrepreneurship and Innovation was launched in partnership with Regional Innovation and Startup Education to provide an entrepreneur certificate in as little as two semesters. “Even before the pandemic, small businesses were struggling to find success, often because owners had a passion and a skill for developing a great product or service, but they lacked the tools needed to effectively run the business,” said Dr. Ronda Taylor, dean of the Garatoni School of Entrepreneurship & Innovation at Ivy Tech. “Our program is set up to provide practical skills they can put into action immediately around topics such as marketing, financials, human resources and legal considerations.” According to the Small Business Administration, about half of all small businesses fail within their first five years. Common reasons include inadequate funding, poor planning and manage-

ment missteps. The certificate program is available at campuses in Indianapolis, Bloomington, South Bend and Fort Wayne, with plans to extend the offering this fall to Columbus, Lake County and Evansville. Currently, 75 students are part of the first four cohorts that began in fall 2021, and at least 120 are expected to enroll this spring in a new set of cohorts. The program provides courses and resources for coaching, mentorship and even an “Ivy Shark Tank” experience where entrepreneurs can pitch investors for funding their business. Students can work toward a certificate program (16 credit hours), a technical certificate (31 credit hours) or an associate of applied science degree (60 credit hours). In Indiana, there are more than half a million small businesses and they employ more than 1.2 million people. To learn more about the program, visit ivytech.edu/study-entrepreneurship/index.html. Registration for the next eight-week term beginning March 23 is still open for students.

Good Champion. “At State Farm, we are committed to helping build stronger communities,” said Schroeder. “For me, it’s not enough to simply say we’re a Good Neighbor. We embrace the responsibility to make this community better by being part of a solution. “Giving back, doing good and being there when it counts are part of the State Farm culture. We started 100 for Good to spread the Good Neighbor spirit throughout our neighborhoods by encouraging employees, agents and community partners to log their Acts of Good and see the collective community impact. “State Farm employees and agents have been each challenged to perform 100 Acts of Good by our 100th anniversary in June 2022.”

After 36 years, Warsaw Lt. Rockey is retiring It was a bittersweet day Wednesday for the Warsaw Police Department and a new retiree. Lt. Steve Rockey completed his final duty day for the city of Warsaw on July 13. The police department held a luncheon for Rockey with members of Rockey’s family, officers and city officials in attendance. Police Chief Scott Whitaker spoke on behalf of the department, thanking Rockey for his 36 years of service and sharing some laughs about memories from all these years. Additionally, Whitaker presented Rockey with a plaque, as well as his duty weapon, which is customary for retiring police officers. Mayor Joe Thallemer was on hand to thank Rockey for his years of service and said he looks forward to Rockey’s continued service to the city of Warsaw in his new role working for the Warsaw Municipal Airport. Another recent retiree, Chuck Hodges, who transitioned from police work to continued service to Warsaw with the street department, shared several stories from years past in their exploits with working the job and specialized training. Prior to beginning civilian law enforcement, Rockey entered the U.S. Army on May 11, 1983, and successfully completed military police school at Ft. McClellan, Ala. From there, Rockey served in Germany with the 709th Military Police Battalion. He completed his tour of duty with the Army in San Antonio, Texas. In July of 1986, Rockey joined the Warsaw Police Department as a dispatcher awaiting an opening on the street. In September of that year, he officially began as a probationary patrolman. On June 29, 1994, Rockey was one of several officers who arrived at a horrific scene and a dark day in this city’s history. On that day, Kosciusko County Sherrif’s Det. Sergeant Phil Hochstetler, investigating a burglary, attempted to interview a suspect and was shot and killed on East Clark Street in Warsaw. The suspect then turned the gun on his two children, killing them as well. It turned into a massive and exhausting manhunt that ended in a hail of bullets in downtown Warsaw three days later. Rockey was instrumental in stopping the killer that day, who was shot and killed by multiple officers at the end of a slow-speed pursuit that came to a stop at the intersection of Detroit and Market streets. For his actions that day, Rockey was awarded the department’s Medal of Honor and Meritorious Conduct. In the fall of 2000, serving as corporal on the second shift, Rock-

The suspect attempted to flee in the vehicle and Rockey was significantly injured after being run over twice by the suspect. The injuries sustained in that violent attack kept him off work for around six months. Rockey received a Purple Heart award for that incident. Due to the events experienced with the murder of Hochstetler, the city police and the sheriff’s office created the county’s first SWAT team. Rockey was one of the original officers on that team and served in that capacity from 1995 to 2009. During that time, his specialty was a breacher for the team and serving as a team leader. Rockey was instrumental with the city’s Motorcycle Patrol Unit.

While the motorcycle was a consistent tool for enforcement over the years, it had fallen dormant in the late 1990s. In the early 2000s, the unit was revamped with the addition of a Harley Davidson. Rockey was one of a handful of officers who logged many hours of enforcement and service on the motorcycle. As he reminisced, he stated that was one of his favorite things he will miss in this job. Rockey has served as a corporal, sergeant and patrol commander during his 36 years. He has worked on all shifts but retired as the midnight shift supervisor, where he has been for the last several years. We are so thankful for all he has done for the city and the department, and we are excited for this new chapter in his life, as he will transition back to working in sunlight.

Wednesday, July 13, marked the end of an era 42 years in the making. After more than four decades, First Sergeant Gary Coffie is set to retire from the Indiana State Police. Coffie moved from Kankakee, Ill., to Indiana to become a member of the 39th Indiana State Police Recruit Academy. After graduating on July 6, 1980, Coffie was assigned to the Ligonier Post where he patrolled Noble County until that post closed in 1982. After the closure, Coffie was assigned to the brandnew Bremen Post where he was assigned patrol duties in Elkhart County. Beginning in 1983 Coffie spent a year in undercover drug investigations before going back to road patrol in 1984. Over the past four decades, Coffie has been promoted several times. In 1985 he was promoted to corporal at the Bremen Post where he served until his promotion to squad sergeant in 1989. Over several years, Coffie supervised troopers in Elkhart and St. Joseph counties. Coffie was ultimately promoted to serve as the first sergeant at the Bremen Post

During his four decades with the Indiana State Police, Coffie served as a field training officer, field training officer coordinator and hostage crisis negotiator; he served as team leader from 1995-2010. Coffie has been a fixture at the Indiana State Fair, where he worked 22 years in a row. First Sergeant Coffie lives in Elkhart County with his wife, Gloria. The Indiana State Police wish him the best in retirement.

Letter to the editor Zoning dispute Dear Editor, On July 11, the Elkhart County Planning Commission sent a rezoning request to the Elkhart County Board of Commissioners, recommending its approval at the upcoming Aug. 15 meeting. The proposal was put forward by Northern Lakes Investment Corporation to rezone a 14-acre site just south of US 6 on CR 21 to allow for the construction of a large trailer transfer yard. The yard would have its entrance on CR 21 which is an unimproved dirt road in the unincorporated area of the county in question. It would extend to the border of the Horizon Estates subdivision to the west. Area homeowners are uniting in opposition to the proposal, with their organization being spearheaded by AFBEC, the Alliance For

KDOI SDJH DG

a Better Elkhart County. AFBEC has undertaken communitywide direct mailings, launched a website and podcast, erected signs and is hosting a petition and opposition rally at 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 5 at the Milford Community Building. AFBEC plans to present a petition directly to the County Commissioners opposing the proposal at the public hearing prior to the vote. We are in no way anti-business, but this is a proposal to place a heavy industrial transport operation in the backyards of well over 100 Elkhart County homes in an area that is zoned A-1. Besides the extremely serious safety issues which the placement of the proposed trailer marshaling yard presents (and I reference our website for detailed information on that and other issues), industrial de-

velopments of this nature destroy property values and salability. Such activities are necessary to Elkhart County, but heavy industrial uses belong in industrial areas where established infrastructure exists to support them. The entire proposal is incredibly ill-conceived and inappropriate, but the Elkhart County Planning Commission turned a deaf ear and a blind eye to our valid objections and did not require any answers to them from NLIC’s spokesperson. To add insult to our injury, we adamantly oppose being fenced in, much like a prison yard, with industrial chain link and razor wire. We are left with no alternative but to stand in vigorous organized opposition. Sincerely, James Otis, Milford
