Since then, the Shopping Guide News has received requests for further information regarding what happens when a baby is placed inside the box. We reached out to Rochester Fire Department Chief Tom Butler who in turn directed us to Monica Kelsey, founder of Safe Haven Baby Boxes, located in Woodburn, just east of Fort Wayne. Kelsey founded SHBB in 2016 to give mothers/parents a safe and legal option

Rochester’s Baby Box is one of 92 across several states, with most of those being in the Hoosier State. Kelsey said she had a personal calling to do this, as she herself was abandoned as a child. The procedure from the outside of the box is simple. Under Indiana’s Safe Haven Law, a child can be legally surrendered without question within 30 days of its birth.

Furniture craftsman and antique restorer retires %\ 75$&(< 58&.0$1 )HDWXUH :ULWHU “I think I’ve painted in every other house in Rochester,” stated local resident Lavon Crissinger. Crissinger, 87 years young, is ﬁnally retiring from a life of painting, furniture building and antique restoration. Crissinger’s Paint Store, owned by Lavon’s father, opened its doors in 1957 in downtown Rochester. In 1969, Lavon took the reins of the family business. “The bulk of the business was contract painting,” Crissinger said. Through the years Crissinger has done residential and com-
mercial painting — including equipment for area farmers, and miles of pipes for water treatment plants all over the Midwest. “It wasn’t long after we acquired the paint store that the big box stores came in. Contracting kept us going,” he noted. “Dad owned one building when I bought him out and we purchased the two buildings next door. We always liked antiques. So almost immediately we incorporated them into the business as well. That turned into repairing antiques which lead to building furniture. I’d taken so many antiques apart I could build a piece just like it.”
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You West Ninth is taking this opportunity to announce to all our valued customers, new friends and many, many acquaintances that we are going in a new direction in life. We will remain open through the end of April 2022. We will continue to offer all our quality products at gradual monthly discounts. We are making our West Ninth location our new home. Yes, we will remain here, but it will be our physical residence. We have come to a point where we love being here and have decided to call it home.

Crissinger has seen and restored many unusual antiques during his time as a restoration specialist. “I’ve always enjoyed restoring antique furniture and knowing it’ll last another 100 years,” he said. “Most of it has been family pieces, that the younger families have taken over. Restoring those pieces for the next generation to use in their home has been a privilege.” In addition to the paint store, and antique business, they added a year-round Christmas shop. “We sold trees and ornaments, and later opened an antique mall in Pierceton,” Crissinger said. Two of his daughters helped create and paint many of the ornaments that were sold. They also did custom wood framing. His wife Betty cut the mattes for the frames. In 2004 he sold the businesses, but building furniture and Continued on page 3

the baby box, which can only be done from inside the ﬁre station, it is immediately taken to the closest hospital for evaluation and determination of age. Once the baby is deemed to be younger than 30 days and healthy, it is given to the Indiana Department of Child Services and placed into foster care for 30 days. During that period, the parents of the child have the right to “change their minds” and petition the court for its return. Kelsey said the process to reclaim the child is possible but not easy and, among other things, requires a DNA test to ensure parentage. Within 30-45 days of the child being taken into custody of DCS, the child is placed into what will eventually become its forever family. Although the child is still considered to be in foster care, the family to whom it is given will begin the adoption process to ensure the child is theirs forever. Kelsey noted in the past, ﬁrst responders were not given any training on what to do if a baby was surrendered to them in person. That has changed, however, and those who might respond to a baby box call have extensive training on what to do if the situation arises. Fireﬁghters and EMTs in Rochester went through the training prior to its dedication to become fully trained on the necessary procedures.

Let’s study the Bible Christ proves he is the Son of God (Read John Chapter 1) “And the Word was made ﬂesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of %\ 5(9 521 the Father,) 385.(< full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14) The theme of John’s Gospel is Jesus is the Son of God (John 20:30-31), and in this ﬁrst chapter he proves his claim. In the beginning the word already existed.
The word was with God, and the word was God. As you read this wonderful chapter, you cannot help but see Christ is God’s Son because of the works he performs, the names and titles he bears, and the witnesses who knew him personally and declare who he is. Christ created the world (John 1:1-4). He was in the beginning with God and was the divine agent through whom the world was created. Christ gives mankind salvation (John 1:9-13). He came to his own world, and his own people received him not. Salvation is a free gift the sinner receives when he trusts Christ. “Believing” and “receiving” are the same thing. A new birth then takes place — not from human blood, or by the ﬂesh, or by the will of men, but from God.
Furniture craftsman Continued from page 2 antique restoration continued to be a full-time love. A workshop was added to the Crissinger’s home and that’s where most of the building took place. Crissinger learned to create furniture from his dad and through his own tinkering. “The more I worked with it, the more knowledge I got on how pieces were put together,” he recollected. “We never got the car in the garage until this year. It was always used for furniture we were restoring — we sold lots of furniture. I would take a van load of furniture to be stripped and when I got it back, I’d have another van full to take.” Much of the wood Crissinger used was supplied by fallen trees. With the help of sawmill owner Dan Peters, Crissinger was able to work with some
unusual lumber. He incorporated willow, sassafras and box elder, which has bright red streaks throughout. Many of his furniture pieces included the limbs of the trees, too. Several local residents own a piece of furniture crafted or restored by Crissinger. His expertise and love of furniture making are reﬂected throughout his own home. Whether it’s a family heirloom or an original piece of furniture, Crissinger’s skill is impeccable. And even though they can park the car in the garage now, Crissinger will miss the days of woodworking and creating fresh pieces of custom furniture. “I am so thankful to all of our friends and customers,” he said. “It’s been a pleasure, and we consider it a blessing to have served you all these years.”
Christ reveals God (John 1:1518). Christ reveals God’s grace and God’s truth. Moses gave the law that reveals sin and condemns; Christ reveals the truth that redeems. The law prepared the way for him. Christ baptizes with the Spirit (John 1:33). We see the Trinity in this chapter: the Father (John 1:14, 18); the Son (John 1:14, 18); and the Spirit (John 1:32-34). The descent of the Spirit identiﬁed Christ to John the Baptist; and we cannot truly see Christ today unless the Spirit opens our eyes. Christ has intimate knowledge of people (John 1:42, 47-48). He knew Peter and Nathanael better than they knew themselves (see John 2:23-25). Only God can see the hearts of people. Christ forgives sin (John 1:29). Nobody on earth can take away a person’s sin. Christ opens the way to heaven (John 1:50-51) and is the way to heaven. Like Jacob in Genesis 28:1017, sinners are away from home and in the night of sin. But Jesus Christ reveals the glory of heaven and opens it for us to enter in. Jesus Christ is God’s “staircase to glory.” Never question God’s great love, for it is as unchangeable a part of God as is his holiness. Were it not for the love of God, none of us would ever have a chance in the future life. But God is love. And his love for us is everlasting. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

Ivy Tech reschedules ‘Tuesday @ the Tech’ Ivy Tech Community College has rescheduled a “Tuesday @ the Tech” event to Tuesday, Jan. 18, at Ivy Tech’s Logansport campus at 1 Ivy Tech Way. Originally scheduled for Jan. 11, the event has been rescheduled out of respect for the late James A. Little, director of the Century Career Center in Logansport and a long-time partner of Ivy Tech in advancing education in the area, whose funeral is set for that evening. The “Tuesday @ the Tech” event, set for 6 to 8 p.m. Jan. 18, is an opportunity for prospective students, and their families, to learn about higher education opportunities in Ivy Tech’s Cass County location. It will include tours of the facil-
ity and a chance to meet faculty members. Participants will learn about spring semester classes with Jan. 19 and March 23 starts in formats including online, virtual and face-to-face and about “stackable” credentials that allow students to move through certiﬁcate programs, technical certiﬁcates and associate degrees, depending on their interest. Also on the agenda is a review of the many sources of funding to help cover tuition and the free textbooks available during the spring semester. For more information about how to register, go to www.ivytech.edu/kokomo or email Kokomofirstname.lastname@example.org. Walk-ins are welcome.
Woodlawn Hospital in Rochester announced Patricia Nicholson, family nurse practitioner, has retired from her position. In a letter to her patients, Nicholson wrote: “After 25 years of practicing family medicine, I have decided to retire as of Dec. 17, 2021. “Woodlawn Hospital is in the process of recruiting another nurse practitioner for this practice. In the meantime. Dr. Binfet has agreed to cover my patients’ needs. I have agreed to assist with patient messages and reﬁlls but will no longer be seeing patients. “Woodlawn Clinics have several family medicine providers that would be happy to see new patients. If you decide to establish care with a Woodlawn Hospital provider, there is no need to transfer records. If you transfer to an ofﬁce not afﬁliated with Woodlawn, then you will need to complete a record release form to have your records transferred. “I have very much enjoyed being part of your health care team and I wish you the very best health in the future.” Woodlawn Hospital noted it has not yet replaced Nicholson. Additionally, they provided a link to look at the other providers in the network, www.woodlawnhospital.com/ staff/?sub=Providers. Patients do not need to do anything with their medical history if they remain within the Woodlawn Medical Professionals system. Otherwise, they will need to provide a medical release form for records to be transferred.

Business Profile —
Getting off on the right hoof %\ $/,621 +$1'< 6WDII :ULWHU Francesca Fonseca of Fonseca Farrier Service in the Fulton County area is keeping busy hooﬁng around Rochester and surrounding areas, trimming and cleaning the hooves of horses. Coming from Minnesota, the Oklahoma State Horseshoeing School 2018 graduate saw a need in the community and took the opportunity to start a career here as a farrier when she moved to the Rochester area this past June. Fonseca grew up with a love of horses and an aspiration to have her own horses one day, which her family eventually helped her accomplish. Growing up she would watch the farrier that took take of her horses, closely observing the task at hand and mesmerized by the work involved. Fonseca said he asked her “why don’t you do it?” and that’s when she was inspired to learn this profession herself. He then pointed her in the right direction for farrier school. At the time, she was looking for something to do that incorporated her love of horses. What exactly is a farrier? Fonseca explained they clean out the horse’s feet and trim the hooves, just as a human would
do with their ﬁngernails. If the hooves are too long or unkept it will injure the animal which could result in them being unable to live properly. “No hoof, no horse; if you have a good hoof, you have a good horse,” stated Fonseca. Since beginning her career in Rochester, she has taken on a rescue case which the pony had hooves so long they were curling under. Fonseca stated this was one of her most interesting cases she has had so far. When talking about the hooves lengths, she explained “with enough maintenance and trimmings the hooves will eventually grow back to a normal healthy length.” Most horses run a six to eight week regiment for trimmings depending on the animal. Regular maintenance is on a short list of suggestions Fonseca has for horse owners, as the hooves continue to grow like our own ﬁngernails. She continued to explain owners need to maintain their horse’s feet on a regular schedule, as it’s best for the health of the hoof and horse. Fonseca is available 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and willing to travel, however a travel fee will be applied if farther than 25 miles out of Rochester. She reassures her clients if needed she can be available after hours if they are unable to schedule within that
time frame. Her main focus is on horses at this time. Although she is currently not doing horseshoes, she is looking forward to expand into that in the near future. If interested in or have questions regarding Fonseca Farrier Service, please call (574) 242-1632 or email email@example.com.

Trine SME chapter receives top award For the second year in a row, Trine University’s student chapter of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers has received a ﬁrst-place award in the student recruitment category from the national organization. The honor, given on the basis of overall percentage increase in chapter size, includes a $500 award toward supporting club activities. The chapter’s student leadership team includes Michael Deaves of Washington, chair; Jose Emenhiser of Albion, secretary; Riley McGuire of Macy, treasurer; and Conner Johnson of Goshen, chapter ofﬁcer. All are design engineering technology majors. “Winning the student recruitment award shows how fortunate Trine’s SME chapter is to have the ofﬁcers and students we currently have. They are a great group,” said Jarred Finnerman, faculty advisor and assistant professor of design engineering technology at Trine. “The winnings will allow the chapter to continue to go on different trips and develop further.” “This is a great accomplishment and I want to say thank you to Professor Finnerman for becoming the advisor of this engineering group and immediately guiding the

student ofﬁcers to an award-winning level of involvement for our students two years in a row,” said Tom Trusty, associate professor and chair of the department of engineering technology. “A huge thank you to the leadership team for your efforts to run a great student organization.” The SME chapter at Trine University was founded to help students explore manufacturing technologies and processes. SME provides information, resources and opportunities to learn about manufacturing and the career opportunities it offers. Trine University’s SME members get hands-on manufacturing experience and gain skills and knowledge about manufacturing technologies. Most recently, the chapter toured the Ford Assembly plant in Detroit to get a better understanding of the scope and scale of a vehicle assembly facility in operation.
