It’s a matter of taste
Hot and cold meals
zipped along two produc-
tion lines at 68 to 70 trays
a minute inside Fort
Wayne Community
Schools’ chilly Nutrition
Center.
Blueberry muffins and
freshly cut orange wedges
were packaged on one line
for the district’s 31
elementary schools and 11
private schools in Allen
County served by the
center. The hot meal of
the day was corn and a
100-percent beef
hamburger. In clean, parti-
tioned rooms regulated by
bacteria-resisting tempera-
tures — 41 degrees, 38
degrees and a face-
numbing 10 to 20 below
zero in the spacious walk-
in freezer area — the
district continues its
efforts to provide the most
nutritious food possible
for students.
That challenge has
become even more
daunting with the recent
passage of the Healthy,
Hunger-Free Kids Act of
2010 and a follow-up set
of recommended nutrition
guidelines issued by the
U.S. Department of Agri-
culture. Although school
districts such as the
31,568-student FWCS
have been stepping up
nutrition efforts all along,
some say the new guide-
lines will undoubtedly
cost more money.
Moreover, an official
with Ohio-based J.T.M
Food Group, which
processes 72 million
pounds of food annually
for 5,600 school districts,
said the technology
currently does not exist to
reach one of the govern-
ment’s ultimate goals of
reducing sodium in

Young entrepreneur prepares for product debut
In a modest workshop
in southwest Fort Wayne,
a young entrepreneur is
diligently working away at
a new product he hopes
will revolutionize the
portable toilet industry.
Next month, 25-year-
old Ben Westrick will
debut St. George’s Foam
Shield at the Pumper and
Cleaner Expo in
Louisville, Ky. It has
taken Westrick four years
to get to this point, but
things seem to have
finally come together.
Westrick, a devout
Catholic, credits his faith
for taking the risk, and
named his business after
the saint he chose for his
8th grade confirmation.
Born and raised in Fort
Wayne, Westrick gradu-
ated from Bishop
Dwenger High School. He
opted out of college and
went straight to work in
construction and industrial
sales. It was there
Westrick quickly began to
understand the shortfalls
of today’s portable toilet,
also known as “Porta-
Johns” or “Port-O-Pottys.”
Westrick sought out
solutions for common
portable toilet setbacks
such as odor, attracting
insects, water waste and
as he puts it, backsplash.
For Westrick, the solu-
tion became clear after he
stood over a sink full of
dirty dishes.
“I dropped a fork into a
sink of soapy water and
saw it just disappear
below,” Westrick said.
“The sink came into mind
in regards to how it
repaired and sealed over.”
And so started the
evolution of St. George’s
Foam Shield, a biodegrad-
able foam made to mask
portable toilet waste.
Westrick’s venture
began on a ping-pong
table in his parent’s base-
ment, where he mixed
numerous chemicals to
find the right combination.
He studied patents in
hopes of discovering a
foam that would last for
an extended period of
time, but with no luck.
And then, a break-
through.
More than two decades
ago, another inventor
created a chemical meant
for use in landfills. But
Westrick saw the potential
for the chemical’s applica-
tion in portable toilets.
“There was a document
with his number left on it
and I called him,” he said.
Westrick consulted with
the chemical’s inventor, an
expert in aqueous foams,
by phone. The original
chemical patent expired in
early 2000, opening the
door for Westrick to
pursue his own patent on
the concept. While
Westrick did not invent
the chemical itself, he did
conceptualize the chem-
ical’s use in a new way.
“I guess you could say I
didn’t invent the wheel,”
he said. “I put it on the
bike.”
During the early stages
of product development,
Westrick met with local
portable toilet operators to
understand the needs of
his target market. He
credits this research for
creating foams in different
colors and scents.
“People are used to
colors in the bathroom.
Most of the time, the
cakes are a certain color
and even the water is blue
in the latrine,” Westrick
said. “I think the color
actually makes it pretty
great.”
In developing the

Huntertown
population
on the rise
Recent census figures
indicate that Huntertown’s
population grew by an
impressive 172 percent in
the last decade. It was the
largest increase in any
town in northeast Indiana.
Huntertown’s population
rose from 1,771 in 2000 to
4,810 in 2010.
In response to the
continued growth, a
proposed expansion of the
town’s water treatment
plant is awaiting final
approval by the Hunter-
town Town Council.
An agreement to
purchase a little more than
11 acres from the county
has been approved by the
Allen County Commis-
sioners, and the
Huntertown Town Council
was to vote on the matter
at its meeting on Feb. 22.
Results were not available
at press time.
The deal includes a
water filtration plant, and
the land has been approved
for more wells.

Sensory-sensitive films to
premiere in Fort Wayne
Going to see a movie with a person
affected by autism or some other
disability can be difficult due to different
sensory triggers. From the dark theatre to
the loud and booming sound systems, a
movie can become overwhelming. Easter
Seals Arc and Regal Cinemas at Cold-
water Crossing will offer a sensory
sensitive film at 10 a.m. on March 5. The
film will be Rango, starring Johnny
Depp, about a chameleon with an iden-
tity crisis. The cost is $7.
To provide a more comfortable setting
for this unique audience, Regal Cinemas
at Coldwater Crossing will turn the lights
up and the sound down, and guests are
free to get up, dance, walk, shout, or
whatever else feels right. In addition,
outside food is permitted and the conces-
sion stands will be open as well.
For more information, call Tony
Belton, Easter Seals Arc public rela-
tions coordinator, at 469-2777. For
more information about the movie that
will be shown, visit

Advance Auto Parts
opens 7th local store
Advance Auto Parts,
Inc. opened its seventh
store in Fort Wayne at
5412 Illinois Road on
February 7.
Company officials said
they chose this location
for the store because it’s
convenient to where their
customers live and shop as
well as the garages where
they take their vehicles for
repair.
Mary Schelling is the
new general manager and
works with nine other
team members there. A
35-year veteran of the
automotive and retail sales
industries, Schelling has
been with the Advance
Auto Parts Team for more
than 10 years. She is ASE-
certified, having passed
testing of her automotive
knowledge by the
National Institute for
Automotive Service
Excellence.
The new store offers
customers a wide range of
parts and recognized
national brands as well as
several free services. Store
team members will install
windshield wipers for
free, and also install
batteries following a
complimentary check of
the vehicle’s electrical
system and old battery.
The store offers parts
delivery to local commer-
cial customers, such as
professional mechanics
and garages. Customers
also can drop off used
motor oil and batteries for
recycling—ensuring that
these materials don’t end
up in landfills where they
could harm the environ-
ment.
The store is open
Monday through Saturday
from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
and on Sunday from 9
a.m. to 7 p.m. Other area
stores are located at 6408

Apricot Lane is slated to open March 31 at Jefferson Pointe.
Courtesy photo
Huntertown resident opens new boutique
Apricot Lane Boutique in Jefferson
Pointe will feature branded fashion
apparel, jewelry, handbags, and acces-
sories. The boutique is set to open on
March 31 and will celebrate its official
grand opening April 15-17.
Customers who shop during April will
be eligible to enter in a sweepstakes for a
chance to win a $200 shopping spree. No
purchase is necessary and the winner will
be selected the first week in May.
The store is locally owned by Jennifer
Braner, a Huntertown resident, who is
fulfilling her interest in fashion by opening
up her very own boutique.
“When I heard about Apricot Lane, I
knew this was the perfect fit for me. I
would be able to open my own store and
carry product that is ever changing with
the fashion trends. I’m excited that I will
have the ability to select what I carry in
my store so that I can really cater it to my
customers and satisfy their needs by
offering contemporary styles with a knowl-
edgeable and fun staff that will give you
exceptional customer service in a relaxed
atmosphere,” she said.
“There are other boutiques in Fort
Wayne, but nothing quite like this, so it’s
great to know I’ll really be fulfilling a void
when it comes to fashion in this area. This
will be the go-to destination for women of
all ages that want something current and
stylish as well as be the place mothers and
daughter can go and re-create their own
bonds over a favorite pastime of shopping
together. There are a lot of women that
will travel to Indianapolis to have more
shopping options - hopefully they won’t
feel the need to do so once we open
Apricot Lane in Fort Wayne,” Braner said.
Apricot Lane will also offer fashion
parties, with the store handling the details
from coordinating the invitations to the
planning of refreshments and snacks for 10
to 15 friends. Parties can be made up of
co-workers, mothers and daughters, young
mothers looking to escape from the kids
for a few hours or even as fundraisers for
charity or sorority groups.

Carroll grad featured
in wedding magazine
Videography. Cinematography. Same thing, right?
Wedding cinematographer and 1999 Carroll High
School grad Samuel Gensic and his wife Jessica, who
own Thread & Film LLC in Fort Wayne, say there’s a big
difference between the two. They’ve even written an
article explaining those differences for Wedding Day
Magazine’s online edition, and the article will appear in
the summer or fall print publication.
The Gensics, who both taught at Homestead High
School early in their marriage, have been filming
weddings for the past seven years.
Wedding cinematography differs from videography, the
Gensics say, in several ways, including intentionality,
approach, style and technology.
“Look for this difference in the design of their website,
the professionalism of their approach, their authenticity
when interacting, their personality when communicating,
both in print and online, the pricing structure of their
packages and extras, the attention to detail while filming
and editing, and their willingness to understand you,” the
Gensics wrote in their article.
Cinematographers are students of film, audio, lighting,
and color theory, said the Gensics. They are also story-
tellers to the core.

Canterbury coach wins national honor
Canterbury High School
girls basketball coach
Scott Kreiger has been
named the 2010 National
Federation of State High
School Association
(NFHS) Girls Basketball
Coach of the Year for the
state of Indiana.
Kreiger has compiled a
record of 215-85 during
his 12-plus seasons as the
head coach of the Canter-
bury Lady Cavaliers. His
accomplishments include
three consecutive class 1A
state championships, four
regional titles, and 10
sectional crowns. The
Lady Cavaliers have won
seven consecutive and 10
of their last 11 sectional
championships.
“I am humbled to
receive this honor. The
NFHS Coaches Associa-
tion is an important
organization in the
national coaching hier-
archy,” Kreiger said. “I
deeply appreciate the hard
work that has been put
forth by the coaches,
players, parents, and staff
at Canterbury School;
without their tireless
efforts, I would never have
been considered for this
award.”
Kreiger played a key
role in the development of
former Lady Cavaliers
Megan King and Tabitha
Gerardot. King finished
her career at Canterbury
with 2,652 points, which
is good for fourth on the
state’s all-time scoring list
Canterbury High School girls basketball coach Scott Kreiger was
named Coach of the Year.

Precision Pilates offers intese workout
Mention the word
Pilates, and most people
have a vague idea that it’s
some kind of exercise
workout.
It’s actually a series of
exercises that can be
performed by people of all
ages and fitness levels,
said Cathy Strack, owner
of Precision Pilates.
Strack teachers tradi-
tional-style mat classes as
designed by Joseph Pilates
in the early 1900’s that
combined both Western
and Eastern traditions,
allowing the mind and
body to work together.
The Precision Pilates
studio, 5808 W. Jefferson
Blvd., Suite D, reflects the
New York style of Pilates
in both practice and décor.
It resembles a loft-style
workout space with large
windows, wood floors and
frames prints of the New
York skyline. Large
posters featuring vintage
illustrations of Pilates
exercises hang in the mat
area.
Precision Pilates
features 10 raised Pilates
mats, which are more
heavily padded than yoga
mats and provide support
for the body. The studio
also features other Pilates
apparatus.
Classes meet in six
week sessions, twice a
week (no new students
after the first week). Indi-
vidual sessions are also
available. There are no
membership fees.

Author to speak about Jewish culinary traditions March 5
What we eat says so
much about who we are
and where we come
from. Do you eat lentils
or lasagna? Does your
menu feature a cheese
torta or a tofu salad? Is
your chicken soup
matzah ball or mulli-
gatawny? Our dinner
table reflects our ethnic
heritage, mingled with
new foods from the areas
where our family has
lived. And for Jews it is
no different: Wherever
they have settled, they
have adapted local tastes
and ingredients to meet
the needs of Sabbath and
holiday traditions, while
adhering to Jewish
dietary laws. They have
created a rich and diverse
menu of flavors and
styles, all still Jewish.
Tina Wasserman,
author of Entrée to
Judaism: A Culinary
Exploration of the Jewish
Diaspora, will share the
histories and recipes of
Jewish communities from
Spain to India in Fort
Wayne at 12:30 p.m.
March 5 at Congregation
Achduth Vesholom, 5200
Old Mill Road. There is
no charge to attend the
presentation, but advance
reservations are required;

strengthen core abdominal
and back muscles in coor-
dination with deep
breathing techniques,
controlled movements and
stretching. Shoes are not
worn and socks are
required.
In addition to teaching
Pilates classes, Strack also
offers personal training to
help clients meet their
fitness goals and teach
them the best way to exer-
cise. An assessment
during the first session
allows Strack to help the
client set goals and
choose exercises and
activities that will make
the workouts productive,
interesting and effective.
A treadmill, bike, strength
training equipment, bands
and balls are used.
Strack first took a
Pilates class at the down-
town YMCA, where she
taught aerobics and kick-
boxing.
“I took a class and fell
in love it with,” she said.
“It was challenging,
mentally and physically.
Then the instructor left,
and I said, ‘I can do this!’
I devoted time to learning
and training, and after 10
years it’s still not
enough.”
She taught at the
Jorgensen Family YMCA
for several years before
moving to the current
2,600-square-foot location
about 1½ years ago.
“I’m very fortunate to
be in this spot,” she said.
“This is the right size.”
Some students have
been with her since the
very beginning, Strack
said, but most have been
taking classes for five to
six years. Many are so
passionate, in fact, that
some donated funds to
buy equipment for the
studio when it opened.
“Things just really
came together,” Strack
said. “My clients really
had a part in making this
happen. They saw the
value in having a place
like this.
Strack holds a master’s
degree in psychology and
was a practicing therapist
for 14 years. She main-
tains her status as a
licensed mental health
counselor.
She earned her Pilates
certification through
White Cloud Studios in
2003 and attends work-
shops led by each of the
Pilates first generation
instructors (original
students of Joseph and
Clara Pilates) and several
master instructors (those
taught by the first genera-
tion teachers). She will
soon begin an apprentice-
ship program with a
master instructor.
“When you go to
someone who represents
themselves as an expert,
you want to know why
they’re an expert,” she
said. “When you come
here you get me, my
experience, my attention,
my passion,” she said.
Pilates emphasizes
quality, not quantity.
Workouts are intense, but
not painful, Strack said,
and students never do
more than 10 repetitions
of any exercise.
“Pilates is like learning
to read and write,” she
said. “First you learn the
alphabet, then you learn to
write words, then you
learn to write in cursive,
then you learn to write
sentences. You can really
spend a lifetime learning
Pilates. There are always
ways to make the exer-
cises better … Once you
learn them, you try to get
your body to do them
better.
“These are mind/body
exercises. You are so
focused on getting them
right and breathing,
there’s no room for
thinking about the kids or
what to make for dinner.
Your mind is focused on
telling the body what to
do.”
Strack said people are
always happy and
refreshed after a Pilates
workout, they walk out
taller, ready to go to the
next thing.

Rockin’ Docs Musicfest
has new date, location
Rockin’ Docs Musicfest, held every September at
Headwaters Park for the last 10 years, has changed its
date and venue. The 11th annual Rockin’ Docs Musicfest
will be 6 p.m.-midnight March 18 at Spiece Fieldhouse,
5310 Merchandise Drive.
The new date and relocation provides an opportunity to
incorporate a sports-related theme into the Musicfest. The
March date coincides with the end of winter, the begin-
ning of spring and the start of basketball’s “March
Madness.”
Spiece Fitness has been a long-time sponsor of the
event.
“We passionately believe in the vital local charities that
Rockin’ Docs supports, and applaud the generous busi-
nesses and individuals who make it happen. It is an honor
to host this fabulous, worthwhile event at Spiece,” said
Anne Davis, co-owner and executive director for Spiece
Fitness.
An added benefit to the move is an inside venue that
protects against Mother Nature. According to Karen
Rothermund, event chair, “This year it can rain, it can
snow. It doesn’t matter. The show will go on and we’ll all
be comfortable and warm inside.”
Rockin’ Docs Musicfest, staffed by approximately 40
volunteers, donates proceeds of the event to local chari-
ties. Over the past 10 years, the organization has donated
almost $350,000, resulting in thousands of local patients
receiving medical services they could not otherwise
afford, such as examinations, diagnostics, medications
and treatment, childhood vaccination and treatment for
victims of rape and domestic violence.
Benefactors in 2009 were Matthew 25 Health and
Dental Clinic, Fort Wayne Sexual Assault Treatment
Center, Super Shot, Francine’s Friends Mobile Mammog-
raphy and Riley Hospital for Children.
Entertainment includes local bands Next Exit, Sheba
and Frankie and the Bananas in addition to a large silent
auction, retail merchandise, food and beverages. Dona-
tions can also be made online.
Admission is $12 at the gate and $10 in advance for this
21-and-older event. Information, including sponsorship
opportunities, online donations and advance ticket purchase
can be found at www.rockindocsmusicfest.com.
students’ meals.
Candice Hagar, FWCS
director of nutrition serv-
ices, said she is generally
pleased with various
provisions proposed by
the USDA, especially a
lowering of calorie counts.
But she said some of the
requirements, particularly
increasing servings of
vegetables and fruits, will
raise costs.
Hagar and Andrea
Stieglitz, food service
director for the 4,000-
student DeKalb County
Central United School
District, said they can’t
predict how much more
costly the new standards
will be.
But Hagar said the
federal government’s plan
to increase meal reim-
bursements by 6 cents for
each healthier meal served
may not be enough.
“We’re going to have to
find a way to do it
cheaper. That’s the busi-
ness model, isn’t it?” said
Hagar, noting that her
$15-million-a-year nutri-
tion services operation
functions on non-general
fund revenue derived from
meal payments, govern-
ment reimbursements and
outside contract work.
She acknowledged that
children not receiving free
or reduced-priced lunches,
who make up about 30
percent of the district’s
students, might wind up
seeing the $1.45 to $1.55
prices of their lunches rise
to cover the additional
nutrition costs.
“A lot of this will be an
unfunded mandate,”
predicted Brian Hofmeier,
senior director of the
school division for J.T.M
Food Group, a Harrison,
Ohio, processing company
that counts FWCS among
its clients. “It’s going to
be up to school districts to
come up with the money
needed for this.”
Hagar said she also
worries that the lowering
of sodium, which is being
done over 10 years to help
students adjust to the taste
change, may nevertheless
wind up producing food
so bland that students will
elect not to eat it.
Stieglitz said DeKalb
has increased its vegetable
and fruit servings, and
Hagar said FWCS already
meets the proposed
requirements for whole
grain products.
The sodium require-
ment seems to be the real
stickler — for school
districts and manufac-
turers alike.
Hofmeier said his
company has alleviated
concerns about additional
costs — at least for some
products — by joining a
consortium of manufac-
turers that have pledged to
offer healthier processed
food at prices no higher
than less healthy choices.
J.T.M provides
processed food such as
macaroni and cheese, taco
filling and barbecued
pulled pork. Hofmeier
said that by July, J.T.M.
will unveil 150 school
food service products that
on average reduce sodium
by 25 percent. The reduc-
tions won’t meet the
10-year USDA goal, but
they represent a move in
the right direction,
Hofmeier said.
“Our goal on all 150
items is an equilibrium of
palatability — or what I
just call ‘tastes the
same,’” he said. “I’ve
been working on formulas
and changes for two
years. I want to be ahead
of what (school districts)
need before they know
they need it.”
He said some of the
low-sodium changes have
come fairly easily. For
instance, he lowered
sodium in spaghetti meat
sauce by increasing
already-included garlic,
basil and oregano.
But he said some foods
naturally contain sodium
that cannot currently be
eliminated and, in all like-
lihood, technology will
have to be developed to
reach sodium levels of
between 430 and 740
milligrams, depending on
the meal and the grade.
That technology may
raise the cost to school
districts in spite of manu-
facturers’ best efforts.
“Who knows,” said
Hofmeier, “what the next
technology jump is going
to cost.”
To illustrate the chal-
lenge of lowering sodium,
Hofmeier said his
company has managed to
reduce sodium in taco
filling from 550
milligrams to 220
milligrams per serving. A
serving, he said, repre-
sents one taco or one
burrito. Assuming a
student’s meal will
include more than a taco
or burrito, it may be diffi-
cult to achieve a lunch
sodium level of 640 to
740 milligrams.
Even if optimum
sodium levels are reached,
Hofmeier shared Hagar’s
concern that the food
might be a turn-off for
students. Hofmeier said he
recently tested macaroni
and cheese made with a
62-percent reduction in
sodium and said students
wouldn’t eat it.
“If you start making
items that the kids won’t
eat,” he said, “and they
just throw it in the
garbage and they stop at a
convenience store for a
microwaved burrito and a
Pepsi, what have you
accomplished?”
There’s also the matter,
he said, that the majority
of what children eat is
consumed at home — and
often with little regard to
sodium content. That’s
one of Stieglitz’s
concerns.
“What are we doing,”
she said, “to change tastes
at home and in our
communities to increase
this nutritional awareness?
If everything tastes
terrible at school and
you’re serving other
things at home, we’ve lost
the battle. This is a
lifestyle change.”
USDA spokeswoman
Jean Daniel said the
federal government’s base
reimbursements for meals
are adjusted yearly, and
that may help school
districts in their pursuit of
providing healthier meals.
Daniel acknowledged
that achieving the sodium
and other proposed nutri-
tion requirements will be
challenging, but she
believes they can be
reached.
School districts and
other interested parties
have until April 13 to
respond to the USDA’s
proposed guidelines,
which at the earliest won’t
be formally put into place
until the 2012-2013
school year, Daniel said.
Hagar hopes the
proposed regulations are
“tweaked a little bit,”
especially the sodium
levels.
In the meantime,
FWCS’s nutrition serv-
ices, which spends
roughly $6 million a year
on food alone, will
continue its efforts to
improve the nutrition of
meals.
“We are continually
looking for a more nutri-
tious solution and always
want to do what is in the
best interests of the chil-
dren in the district,” Hagar
said. “We believe that our
meals are already nutri-
tious, but everything can
always be improved on.”
To that end, she said,
the proposed government
guidelines are, for the
most part, good ones.
“We just feel like in
certain areas they may be
taking it a little too far.”

product, Westrick has spent roughly
$35,000 of his own money, which he
thinks is “absolute peanuts” in the whole
scope of things. Westrick has sought no
funding from outside investors and has no
plans to in the future.
“I don’t like to owe anyone anything. I
am just a saver by nature,” Westrick said.
“But I’m definitely running on my own
dime.”
Westrick likely would have spent three
times that amount on product develop-
ment had it not been for a company in
Oregon that heard his concept and
believed in the product.
Dave Maier, design engineer at Odin
Foam, said when Westrick contacted the
company about developing a system for
his foam product, the pairing just made
sense.
“It was a good marriage for him to pick
us,” Maier said. “We build fire equipment
here that is very similar in nature to the
type of product that Ben needed. It’s
always a risk getting involved in a new
venture but I’ve also found if you don’t
take risks, you never get anywhere.”
Maier and his team developed a battery
operated 12-volt pump that merges fluid
and air compression at the proper pres-
sure and volume to make the chemical
foam. Now, the unit is ready to make its
debut at next month’s expo in Kentucky.
For now, with the exception of Odin
Foam, Westrick is running a one-man
operation. He envisions strategically
placing hubs around the country where
St. George’s Foam Shield can bulk ship
the product. By making portable toilet
operators the main distributor, Westrick
cuts out the middle man and keeps costs
down.
In his ideal scenario, Westrick said
when an event or job-site requires
portable restrooms, the portable toilet
distributor would offer to have those
toilets ‘foamed.’
In addition, the need for water to main-
tain portable units dramatically decreases
because the foam uses only one gallon of
water to fill the toilet bowl. Operators
would no longer be required to haul the
many gallons of water typically required
to flush out the unit.
“When you go to suck up those
latrines, you are maximizing the business
you’re sucking up, so to speak,” Westrick
said.

Fort Wayne on top remodeling list
As new home construction continues to
be down, some good news is on the
horizon for remodeling markets across the
country. Remodeling Magazine has just
released its list of top 100 Remodeling
Markets, and Fort Wayne is on the list at
number 92.
The Top 100 Markets list is based on
the Residential Remodeling Index (RRI),
a unique new metric designed to provide
insights into and forecasts of remodeling
activity by market. The (RRI) “Composite
Index” measures the overall level of
remodeling activity nationally and in 366
metropolitan statistical areas.
Maurine Holle, Executive Director of
the Home Builders Association of Fort
Wayne said, “The HBA of Fort Wayne
has seen the largest increase in remod-
eling permits since 2007. 2010 displayed
an additional 880 permits representing
$7.8 million dollars in additional remod-
eling income over the 2007 totals. With
the continued extension of energy credits
for windows, doors, hvac, etc., the HBA
Remodelers’ Council members are
looking forward to another banner year in
2011.”
“The storytelling experience of a movie is rich and
dynamic, integrating video, audio and titling in such a
way that it draws on your emotions to the extent that is
hard to explain-but holds your attention from start to
finish,” they said. “In the same way a bride wants her
dress to be a reflection of her beauty, personality and
style, the wedding film should reflect those various
threads, and the storytelling style of a cinematographer
lends itself perfectly for this.”
Cinematographers use the same tools and technology
used in the film industry to produce television shows and
movies including high-definition cameras, high-quality
tripods, lighting kits, wireless audio equipment, profes-
sional editing and color correction software, to name a
few.
“When was the last time you heard someone rave
about wedding videography?” said the Gensics. “A
delayed response, or no response at all, may be one of
the reasons why approximately 75 percent of couples
getting married this year will exclude wedding videog-
raphy from their budget. We believe that cinematography
evokes a different response.”

I took these pictures on the
day after Thanksgiving. I
noticed how beautiful the
icy leaves in the gutter were
with the sun shining on
them on my morning walk,
and drove back over to the
corner of Highland and
Dewey Streets in Auburn
with my camera!
This is a picture of my
grandson Layne standing
in the window watching a
train go by. When he hears
the whistle he crawls to
the window and waits for
someone to lift him up so he
can see out. He has
discovered he can stand
on the window sill with the
helping hand of an adult.
The tracks are just beyond
the trees.
