Despite recent numbers

that show southwest Allen
County home sales were
down slightly in 2011, the
Aboite-Lafayette township
areas saw the highest
median sales price overall.
Based on numbers
released by the Upstate
Alliance of Realtors,
Allen County accounted
for 68 percent of total
home sales in the region.
In 2011, the number of
closed home sales in
Allen County totaled
3,986 out of a total 5,889
for the entire region,
which includes Adams,
Allen, DeKalb, Hunt-
ington, Noble, Wells and
Whitley counties.
The Aboite and
Lafayette townships saw
625 home sales close in
2011, down 1.4 percent
from the previous year
and behind Wayne and
Pleasant townships
(1,017) and St. Joe Town-
ship (886). However,
December home sales in
the Aboite-Lafayette areas
were up 47.6 percent from
the same month in 2010,
with 62 closed home
sales.
Alan Moore, principal
broker and owner of River
City Realty in Fort
Wayne, attributes the
large number of home
sales in Wayne Township
to population and afford-
able pricing, and predicts
the area will again see the
highest number of sales in
2012.
“Based on a pure
number of transactions,
Wayne Township will lead
again, but I think this will
be a year of solid upswing
for the whole county,”
Moore said. “The inven-
tory is ticking down a bit
with sales slightly up, so
we are starting to see
more quality listings
throughout the county.
You always have great
homes in town, especially
West Central and South-
wood Park, but the
southwest and northwest
areas never seem to stall
and will account for a
large percentage of sales.”
Overall, new home
prices have remained
stable: the average value
of new homes permitted
in Allen County in 2011
was $185,746, compared
with $184,801 in 2010
and $178,745 in 2009.
Last year, the Aboite-
Lafayette area maintained
the highest median sales
price, $170,000, ahead of
Eel River, Lake and Perry
townships in northwest
Allen County, Moore
said.
While 2012 will likely

A calculated investment
Local venture group saw potential in acquiring 60-year-old Bowmar
With new ownership and a
renewed mission, Fort
Wayne-based Bowmar
LLC is on its way
back to the future.
The 60-year-old
Fort Wayne electronics
company, famously
known for inventing
the handheld calcu-
lator in 1971 and then
losing the market for
the consumer device
to rival Texas Instruments, is returning to
the strategies and strengths that made it a
successful aerospace and defense
contractor.
It also took back the core name founder
Edward White, a former employee of
Farnsworth Radio and Television Corp.,
gave the company when he and his wife,
Joan, started Bowmar Instrument Corp. in
their Fort Wayne garage in 1951.
The Fort Wayne business was
purchased from Phoenix-based White
Electronic Designs Corp. in March 2010
by about two dozen investors in the Main
Street Venture Fund, which was created
by consulting firm Ruffolo Benson LLC.
“The mission of Ruffolo
Benson is to retain and
regain ownership of
local businesses. This
fit in our wheelhouse
perfectly,” said Bix
Benson, now Bowmar’s
chairman of the board.
Ruffolo Benson had learned
the Fort Wayne business was for
sale through a White board
member who had
served on yet another
board with the late
Joe Ruffolo. Main
Street made a
proposal, negotiations went back and
forth and eventually a deal was struck to
acquire the local operation.
“There was a lot of interest in
Bowmar,” said Karen Goldner, the Main
Street Venture Fund president who moved
over to become Bowmar’s president in
late November. “It was profitable and it
seemed to have an upside potential … It
wasn’t a blue-sky startup.”
Bowmar has had its share of ups and
downs. After introducing its calculator,
the Bowmar Brain, the company was
outmaneuvered by Texas Instruments and
eventually ended up in bankruptcy. It

The trouble with carbs
Remember the ‘fat-free’
craze of the late ‘90s? A
good meal consisted of a
plateful of pasta with
marinara sauce, crusty
bread and fat-free ice
cream for dessert. And we
could eat all we wanted
because it was fat-free,
right? Well a paradox
occurred during this era in
which our society actually
got larger and sicker
eating fat-free foods. How
could this be? We
increased our
carbohydrate and sugar
intake.
During that time and
still today, we are
bombarded with an enor-
mous amount of
carbohydrates and sugar
in our diet and this is
where the problem begins.
Throughout history,
anthropologists have
discovered that our hunter
and gatherer ancestors
who lived on lean meats,
seafood, seasonal vegeta-
bles, fruits, nuts, and eggs
had less malnutrition and
chronic illness than their
fellow farmers who
consumed a significant
amount of grains and
sugar.
Carbohydrates provide
glucose or fructose, which
our bodies use as an
energy source. When you
consume glucose, it is
stored in the liver and
muscles as glycogen.
When the liver and muscle
glycogen capacity is full,
excess carbohydrates are
then converted and stored
as fat in our bellies and
hips and also converted to
cholesterol. Excess carbo-
hydrates can also affect
our brains, decreasing our
awareness of being full.
So we remain hungry
despite excess glucose
levels and we continue to
eat and crave these foods.
As a result of this
excess glucose, we
produce more and more
insulin and during this
process, our bodies start to
become insulin resistant.
These high insulin levels
cause systemic inflamma-
tion and put us at risk for
chronic issues such as
Type 2 diabetes, cardio-
vascular disease,
osteoporosis, autoimmune
issues, infertility, and ulti-
mately cancer.
This is serious stuff to
understand not only for
ourselves but also for our
children. This is the first
generation that will not
outlive their parents. One
in three children will be
diabetic. Just take a
moment to consider the
amount of sugar and carbs
the average child
consumes in a day. It’s
alarming.
So what do we do? We
need to reconsider our
carbohydrate and sugar
intake. Instead of a
carb-laden bowl of cereal,
consider an egg cooked
with spinach, topped with
avocado and salsa. If

Medicare cuts impact skilled nursing facilities
How you can help, without jeopardizing care of residents
Over the past several years, skilled nursing
facilities have absorbed billions in Medicare
and Medicaid cuts. As of October 2011, there
was an 11.1 percent cut to Medicare benefits
for all skilled nursing facilities across the
country. Other proposed cuts are coming down
the road to Medicare, as well as Medicaid.
Continuous cuts threaten access to quality care
for America’s growing population of seniors.
Nationwide, more than 70 percent of all
patients in nursing homes rely on Medicare and
Medicaid funds, according to the Alliance for
Quality Nursing Home Care, and further cuts
to Medicare could negatively impact residents
and prove “disastrous” to facilities, local
economies, and caregiver jobs. Unfortunately,
the biggest expense area in skilled nursing
facilities is staffing. Estimates are that tens of
thousands of care staff could lose their jobs in
order to balance this deep cut. These staffing
cuts can potentially be detrimental to the
quality of care that every resident and future
resident deserves.

be a favorable year for
buyers, there is some
positive news for sellers,
Moore said.
“The market is defi-
nitely still on the buyer’s
side, but sellers are
holding their ground.
Based on statistics from
Upstar, the percentage of
original list price for
homes sold in 2011 was
94 percent - pretty static
from 94.2 percent in
2010,” he said.
Still, many who would
like to sell an existing
home this year could keep
with a nationwide trend
of holding off and listing
homes for rent rather than
fight the current market.
“Quite a few home-
owners who bought
before the market
retracted either cannot or
do not want to sell their
home in the current
market,” Moore said.
“Renting that property
can be a viable option for
many. River City Realty
has had an increase in
requests for property
management services and
inquiries, and we expect
that to continue this year.”
Home building activity
in and around Allen
County continued at
about the same pace in
2011 as in both 2009 and
2010. An analysis by the
Home Builders Associa-
tion of Fort Wayne found
its members accounted
for a total of 872 new
home permits last year,
compared with 916 in
2010 and 894 in 2009.
The year just ended
included 680 permits in
Allen County.
As has been the norm,
Perry and Aboite town-
ships were the busiest in
Allen County for new
home builders in 2011.
The numbers were down
from 2010, and Perry is
seeing a shortage of lots
available as Huntertown
works through plans to
expand its sewer capacity
by building its own treat-
ment plant.
St. Joe and Washington
townships also accounted
for a big chunk of permit
activity in both years.
According to Tony
Reincke of Granite Ridge
Builders by Tony
Reincke, developers have
held back on creating new
subdivisions in Allen
County in the past few
years, and new shortages
may develop as those lots
are taken.
Move-up buyers have
become more realistic
about the prices they can
get for their existing
homes, Reincke added. In
particular, he is seeing
increased interest from
baby boomers who want
to move into one-level
ranch homes and villas
that will be easier to
handle as they age, and
also from young people
ready to buy a home as
they start or expand their
families.
Based simply on the
numbers, there is a fair
chance this year those
baby boomers and young
people will purchase from
a selection of existing
rather than new homes.
“Existing home sales
greatly outnumber new
home sales. There is such
a great inventory of
existing homes and with
the current economic
times, there are fewer
builders and developers,”
Moore said. He added
that according to the
Upstar multiple listing
service, in 2011 there
were 4,025 existing home
sales, compared to just
224 new home sales.
“Granted, many of the
new homes sold don’t
make it to the MLS,”
Moore said.
But the county
continues to offer a varied
market fit for anyone,
Moore said, from Victo-
rian homes built at the
turn of the century to
sprawling, contemporary
suburban ranches.
“It is truly a diverse
area. That will always
make this an attractive
place to live. State and
county home sales were
both slightly up over
2010 and that is prom-
ising. Overall, we see
good things coming for
2012.”

Star of Discovery Channel's Auction Kings to appear in Fort Wayne
Certified fine art and antiques appraiser, Dr.
Lori Verderane, will appear Mar. 1-3 at the Fort
Wayne Home & Garden Show. In addition to
being an appraiser, Verderane is also a part-
time standup comedian. She
has been seen on Lifetime
Television, Comedy
Central's “The Daily Show
with Jon Stewart” and
NBC's “The Tonight Show.”
She presents more than 100
events each year and also
conducts in-home appraisal
visits.
"Free antique appraisals will
be available as part of Dr. Lori's
shows each day," a press state-
ment said. "Arrive early, since
appraisals are limited."
Verderane holds a Ph.D. in art
history and she also has columns in
more than 85 publications about
antiques, travel and home and garden
design. The writer of 30 books, she
evaluates approximately 20,000 items
per year.
In addition to bringing the antique items
to the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum
for evaluation, attendees of the show can also
bring photos of antiques to be appraised, as
part of the antiques appraisal comedy show.
In a press statement, Verderane said her
appraisals are honest.
"You'll laugh out loud while learning about
your antiques, your friends and even your
spouse at my event! I'm not an antique dealer
or affiliated with any auction house and my
evaluations are straightforward and honest.
I will not hesitate to tell you, your friend
or your spouse that their stuff is junk."
She said she will "break some
hearts and make some million-
aires."
Verderane’s antique
appraisal shows will also
discuss myths of the
business.
"Everyone is invited
to attend," she wrote in
the press statement,
"with or without an
antique, and I'll even
tell you how some
appraisers are not telling
you the truth and how they fail to
meet professional museum standards."

Fort Wayne Home & Garden Show
Brian Santos, also
called "The Wall Wizard"
has presented informative,
entertaining workshops
more than 5,000 times to
audiences at home shows
across the country. He has
also shared his painting
expertise on HGTV's
“Smart Solutions,” ABC's
“Good Morning America,”
and NBC's “Today,” as
well as The Learning
Channel and Discovery
Channel. Santos will teach
three workshops at the
Home & Garden Show.
His first session, enti-
tled “Wall Magic!” will
allow participants to expe-
rience and learn the real
tips, tricks and techniques
of home improvement. As
a best-selling author,
Santos has plenty of infor-
mation to offer attendees.
In this course, Santos,
who is a 25-year interior
contractor veteran,
chemist and educator, will
walk participants through
the real science, magic
and myths of home deco-
rating.
As ‘The Wall Wizard,’
Santos will teach listeners
how to look through
wizard eyes with confi-
dence and use the most
inexpensive and practical
decorating medium, which
is paint. Santos will then
show attendees how to use
everyday household prod-
ucts such as Pam cooking
spray, plastic cling wrap
and magnets to speed up
the painting process by
400 percent.
In his second show,
Santos will detail faux
finish secrets and show
attendees how basic tech-
niques such as dragging,
flogging and whacking
can create realistic and
dramatic effects like
stone, leather and wood,
in a few simple steps. This
course will be a live, audi-
ence participation show
that focuses on the prac-
tical hands-on application
of the three hottest faux
finishing effects used in
home design and deco-
rating today.
Santos will present
many of the same applica-
tion techniques that
Hollywood set decorators
have used for generations
to create clever visual
effects and realistic illu-
sions from favorite movies
and television programs.
The third program,
directed by Santos is
‘Wallcovering Secrets,’
which gives participants
complete home improve-
ment education. In this
interactive session, Santos
will demystify the most
common myths, mistakes
and misconceptions that
people often have about
wallcoverings. Revealing
time-tested tricks and
techniques, Santos will
help homeowners answer
and solve any home
decorating dilemmas.

“Our company, Covenant
Care, is committed to not
cut staff in our facilities to
preserve the quality of
care provided to every
resident. We are working
on plans to counteract
Medicare/ Medicaid cuts
without cutting staff and
jeopardizing the care of
our residents.”
As baby boomers begin
to enter their golden
years, and more seniors
are living longer, the
demand for care is
growing. Skilled nursing
facitlities are preparing to
meet this demand, but
future funding cuts pose a
real threat to this critical
service.
Please take the time to
write, call, or email our
elected officials. Let them
know that cutting vital
Medicare and Medicaid
benefits is unacceptable.
Medicare cuts impact
every one of us.

Three Fires, a sister
restaurant of 800 Degrees
Wood Fired Pizza has just
started construction on its
nearly 5000 square-foot
facility. The restaurant
will be on Illinois Road,
near Jefferson Pointe, and
is set to open for
customers in March.
Three Fires will offer
artisan pizzas, an
expanded small plates
menu, wood grilled
entrees, and 14 draft beer
lines, which will showcase
a variety of regional craft
beers. The new restaurant
will also offer full sit-
down service, more menu
options and is expected to
bring more than 35 new
jobs to the Fort Wayne
area.
The new name, 800
Degrees Three Fires “is
inspired by its two wood-
fired ovens, and a new
wood burning hearth — a
large fireplace used for
grilling and roasting,” a
press statement said.
Matt Rogers, executive
chef said, “The wood-
fired hearth is the first of
its kind in Fort Wayne and
we are really excited to
begin experimenting with
this different style of
cooking.”
The hearth was inspired
by Rogers’ recent trip to
South America.
“Our goal is to allow
our patrons to experience
foods cooked before
microwaves and gas
powered stoves. We’re
slowing down the process
and focusing on great
food in a casual
atmosphere,” he said.

was diagnosed with Type
1 diabetes.
“I googled ‘reverse
diabetes’ and an article
about him came out.
That’s how I started to
learn,” Boller said.
In the spring of 2008,
she had high blood pres-
sure and she was headed
for heart disease. Boller
was prescribed statin
drugs, but didn’t take
them.
“I knew I was sitting on
the brink,” she said. “It
wasn’t if, it was when I
was going to have a heart
attack or a stroke.”
After the night in the
studio, she decided she
would write Fuhrman and
see if he would endorse
her art exhibit. Fuhrman is
one of the country’s
leading nutritional and
natural method experts.
He travels all over the
world and his book, “Eat
To Live,” is currently
ranked No. 5 on The New
York Times best-seller
list.
Boller’s transformative
journey started in July of
2008 and she documented
the changes through her
personal website.
“I documented it with
my pictures,” she said.
“Within 10 months to a
year, I lost 100 pounds.”
Fuhrman ended up
reading the letter she sent
and looked at her website.
He invited her to start
writing for his health
blog.
She vividly remembers
her first assignment.
“He wanted me to write
300 words about my
favorite vegetable,” Boller
said. After the first post,
she began writing one
every week. Now she
emcees at events and
health getaways. She also
shares her own story as a
motivational speaker.
While she said she can
be found on the road,
traveling, returning to the
city provides a change of
pace.
“I have my little quiet
world in Aboite Township,
where nobody knows
what I do,” she said.
The book she read to
lose weight, “Eat To
Live,” emphasizes a high-
nutrient, plant-based way
of living, Boller said.
“Lots of greens, vegeta-
bles and beans. Just
staying away from
processed foods and lots
of animal products,” she
said.
She said she learned a
lot about her body after
reading “Eat to Live.”
“I was very, very
malnourished,” she said,
“even though I was obese.
Within four days, just the
cravings went away. I was
getting nourished again.”
Boller said she learned
to select foods that have
the highest nutrient value.
But she also admitted that
the changes she had to
make were permanent.
“It’s a permanent way
of losing weight. The
focus is on. When we take
the best care that we can
of our bodies, the weight
comes off,” she said.
She also said there was
a struggle in the begin-
ning, but that she was able
to fight through it.
“The first two or three
weeks, there was a
struggle. I was craving
cottage cheese, and it’s
called ‘toxic hunger.’”
Toxic hunger is when
people get headaches,
shakiness and withdrawal
symptoms from not eating
the high-fat, sugary foods
they may be accustomed
to having.
But Boller’s hope moti-
vated her through the
difficult weeks and her
advice serves as an inspi-
ration for others.
“If we make it through
the withdrawal time, our
taste buds change and we
don’t want to go back to
eating a lot of high salt,
processed foods.”
She said if chicken
nuggets, steak or pizza
were placed in front of
her, she wouldn’t eat it,
simply because after
detoxing from those
foods, the desire for them
is gone.
“That’s what make its
permanent,” she said.
It has now been three
years that Boller has
managed to keep off the
weight she initially lost.
When she interviews
others who have done
Fuhrman’s plan, she
notices the change in the
mind-set of people who
have read the book.
Talking about people
who have reversed heart
disease and reduced their
medications, Boller said,
“this is for life. This isn’t
just for eating to diet.”
Fuhrman has a popular
show on PBS and “went
to med school with Dr.
Oz,” Boller said. Fuhrman
will visit Fort Wayne in
March.
The artist and writer
seems grateful for the
opportunities she has had
through the “Eat To Live”
plan.
“It’s an honor and privi-
lege to be able to meet
people who have
committed to getting their
health back. In such a
short amount of time, with
the right amount of food
and right kinds of foods,
we can give life to our
body,” she said.

withdrew from the
consumer market and
went on to produce preci-
sion mechanical devices,
including some used in
the Apollo Lunar Excur-
sion Module and F-4
Phantom fighter planes.
Through a series of
acquisitions and mergers
it ultimately became part
of White Electronic
Designs, and control
shifted to a corporate
headquarters in Phoenix.
In 2010, within a week
after it sold its Fort Wayne
operations, that company
was acquired by
Microsemi Corp., noted
Bowmar sales manager
Tim Anderson.
If Main Street hadn’t
purchased the business, it
would have closed,
putting more than 40 local
workers out of their jobs.
Anderson began
working for Bowmar —
the first time — in 1973
and was brought back
after Main Street investors
purchased the company.
He remembers a time
when its front-line busi-
ness was what is known
as “design-to-spec.” The
entire second floor of
Bowmar’s Bluffton Road
plant was filled with engi-
neers who designed
devices to meet specific
customer needs.
Over the years, the busi-
ness devolved more to
“build-to-print,” in which
a customer provides the
design and the company
creates the device
according to those plans.
“We lost our engi-
neering capacity,”
Andersen said.
Worse yet, the Fort
Wayne plant’s owners
“had developed a milking
strategy. They did not
invest in the business.
They just took cash out,”
Benson said.
“Because Bowmar had
been milked no one was
going out and finding
customers, or looking at
who are our competitors
and suppliers,” Benson
added.
Still, the build-to-print
business kept the opera-
tion going. “In fact, a lot
of what we produce are
things that Bowmar
designed 10, 20 years ago.
It’s legacy business,”
Andersen said.
“The build-to-print
business is a great base,
but it’s not got the growth
potential,” noted Goldner.
”We don’t start off the
year at zero.”
The first thing Ruffolo
Benson and Main Street
did was put in a new
board of directors, all of
whom — with the excep-
tion of Goldner — were
investors.
“The key is to have a
local board to work on the
direction of the company,”
Benson said.
The decision to bring
back the Bowmar name
came when Goldner,
Ruffolo and others were
having lunch and
discussing what to call the
newly acquired business.
“It was sort of like a big
duh — of course! We
have customers who still
know us as that,” Goldner
said.
Although Goldner was
working with the
company in her role as
Main Street’s president, it
wasn’t until after she lost
her bid for re-election to
the Fort Wayne City
Council that she was

Andersen, who first went to work for the company in the 1970s,
was brought back by the new owners as sales manager.

brought on board full time
as president.
“It worked out well for
the company that Karen
was available because of
the election,” Benson said.
“I think Karen can have as
great an impact on the
community doing this as
being on the City
Council.”
Goldner only expects to
be in the job for a year or
so as the company
develops its new strategy.
When it is time, her
replacement likely will be
someone with a more
technical orientation.
“Karen’s skills are
organization-building
skills, which is what we
need right now,” Benson
said.
“My reason for being
here is to continue moving
the company ahead on
some organizational and
infrastructure things,”
Goldner added. “I’m not
an engineer. It amazes me
what our folks here can
do.”
In fact, the company
already manufactures
parts to far higher toler-
ances — a few
thousandths of an inch —
than its equipment was
designed to handle; and
workers hand assemble
components from tiny
slivers of metal and wire.
“We have some really
very talented people,”
Goldner said. “The
assembly work involved is
all bench assembly. It’s
very fine.”
“It’s almost craftsman
level,” Andersen agreed.
Bowmar’s two main
product areas are
keyboards/control panels
and gearheads and gear-
related components.
At the time Main Street
acquired the business,
“nobody knew what the
upside was for those
product lines,” Andersen
said.
“But we found that
there is a market for gear-
heads in aerospace and
defense, and there will be
for some time.”
Aerospace and defense
production — Bowmar
makes components used
in Virginia class
submarines, for example
— requires higher stan-
dards of performance as
well.
“The kind of imperfec-
tions we live with in a
Droid phone, maybe
punching the keypad
several times, is not so
good in an airplane,”
Goldner noted wryly.
Partly for that reason,
Bowmar’s work force
tends to be older.
“It can take years to get
up to speed,” Goldner
added.

A REALLY BAD DAY
Frozen Pipes
February often brings the lowest
temperatures of the year. Protect
your home’s water pipes from the
bitter cold with these simple steps:
Eliminate Drafts. Tightly close
crawl spaces, vents and doors.
Repair broken or cracked basement
windows. Insulate gaps, cracks and
anywhere cold air penetrates.
Insulate Pipes. Install heat tape or
pipe insulation in crawl spaces and
unheated parts of your home, garage
and outbuildings.
Remove Outdoor Hoses.
Exterior faucets and hoses are frst
to freeze. Remove for the season
between October 15 and November 1.
Keep a Trickle Running. When it’s 10
degrees or less, a thin stream of water
running at the tap farthest from the
water meter helps prevent freezing.
So does opening cabinet doors,
allowing warm air to reach pipes below
sinks. Always remove cleaners and
chemicals dangerous to small children.
Protect Your Water Meter.
Water meters are often located in the
garage. Leaving your garage door
open just a few inches (for pets or by
accident) can freeze your water meter
and block water fow to the entire home.
If this happens to you, call Aqua Indiana
customer service. If other pipes freeze
and you can locate the blockage, thaw
with a handheld hair dryer. If this fails,
call your plumber immediately.
We’ve been lucky with an unusually
mild winter so far. But, February can be
brutal – and Aqua wants you to avoid
a really bad day.

2012 Polar Plunge
bigger, better
in fifth year
Funds to benefit Special Olympics
Indiana and Allen County
On Saturday, Feb. 11, the Parkview Field concourse
will be taken over by some brave souls, each person
“freezin’ for a reason” at the 2012 Fort Wayne Polar
Plunge.
The event raises money to provide year-round sports
training and athletic competitions for children and adults
with intellectual disabilities through Special Olympics
Indiana and Allen County. The organizations rely on
corporate, civic and individual donations to keep the
program alive and receive no federal- or state-appropri-
ated funds.
“We’re celebrating this year with something bigger and
better than ever to bring in more of a draw,” said plunge
co-chair Julia Fiechter. The Mike Thomas and Associates
Realtor has been a Special Olympics volunteer and
fundraiser for years.
In a new twist on an already popular event, a new,
unused dumpster filled with ice-cold water, donated by
Republic Services, Inc., will be setup on the Parkview
Field concourse, 1301 Ewing St. Daredevils will take the
plunge at noon, and participants who raised the most
money will enjoy a luxurious hot-tub soak sponsored by
Master Spas. It’s a pretty good incentive to raise the most
money, considering the average February high in Fort
Wayne is just 34 degrees.
“I know, it sounds crazy and it is … and it’s cold,”
Fiechter said.
To participate, each individual must raise at least $75 in
pledges to benefit Special Olympics. Prior to the event,

Rifkin venture puts money behind movie
ʻRobot & Frankʼ was shown at Sundance
Danny Rifkin never thought about
getting into the filmmaking business.
The music business, perhaps. He left
college for a time in an unsuccessful
search for fame and fortune as a
rock musician.
“But that was it as far as my
vision of entertainment went,” said
Rifkin, former CEO and co-owner of
OmniSource Corp. “And then my
focus quickly changed to a scrap
(metal) operation after that.”
It’s odd then — and even he
admits this — that an independent
movie financed in large part by a
wholly owned subsidiary of Rifkin’s
North River Capital LLC debuted
Jan. 20 at the prestigious Sundance
Film Festival in Utah.
“Robot & Frank,” starring Frank
Langella and Susan Sarandon, is
about a curmudgeonly old loner and
his caretaker robot. Frank and the
robot first become friends, according
to a synopsis provided by North
River Capital, and then partners in
unexpected adventures that give the
movie universal appeal.
North River Capital’s White Hat
Entertainment is the majority
investor in the film, and it is North
River Capital’s first foray into the
entertainment industry. The Fort
Wayne-based privately held equity
capital firm, Rifkin said, is more
accustomed to focusing on acquiring
industrial manufacturing companies
with significant growth potential.
“This is certainly a different
thing,” he said.
North River was formed in 2008
by Rifkin, his brothers, Rick and
Marty, and three other former execu-
tives of OmniSource, which was
purchased by Steel Dynamics Inc. in
2007.
“We started North River at a time
when the economy was in pretty
rough shape, and we were able to
find a number of good companies to
acquire,” Rifkin said. “And then it
seemed like the quality of the oppor-
tunities diminished for a time, and so
we started to seek out other kinds of
niche things, whether it had to do
with oil drilling and exploration or
movies.”
Rifkin, managing partner of North
River, was eventually introduced to
the founders of New York-based
Park Pictures Productions — Jackie
Kelman Bisbee in particular — and
that led to White Hat Entertain-
ment’s involvement with “Robot &
Frank.”
Park Pictures Productions is
among the minority investors in the
film.
Rifkin said it’s conceivable North
River and White Hat will invest in
other film projects, including those
orchestrated by Park Pictures.
“We’re open to it,” Rifkin said.
“(Park Pictures’) vision is to build
up a film library and have Park
Pictures Features continue to
produce and direct and distribute
independent films.”
In the meantime, Rifkin is
enjoying all that goes along with the
current movie. He said he found an
early screening of “Robot & Frank”
entertaining and he attended the
movie’s Sundance premier.
“It’s exciting,” he said. “It
certainly is exceeding what our
expectations were when we got
involved with the Park Pictures
folks.
“The whole structure of the enter-
tainment business has been very
interesting to learn about and we’re
continuing to learn.”

A love lost and found again
A love story 30 years in the making wins the Greatest Love Story of all ʻTimesʼ contest
It was New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31, 1998. Deanna Linn
and Mike Hathaway stood inside the Denver International
Airport looking at each other face-to-face for the first
time in 30 years — she with a heart full of hope and he
with an apology he hoped she would accept. So very
much had happened during their years apart.
Their story begins where they both grew up: Celina,
Ohio. Then, she was Deanna Linn, an athletic girl who
lived at the lake with a tight-knit family that included a
brother and sister. Mike lived with his parents and two
younger brothers and was a year ahead of Deanna in
school.
After graduation, both Mike and Deanna started jobs in
their hometown. He was a gas station attendant and she
began her 30-year career in insurance at Celina Insurance
Group.
“She’d pull into that gas station with her girlfriends and
she was a cute little thing,” Mike said. “She looked pretty
attractive to me. When I was told by other friends that
she’d like to go out on a date, boy I jumped at that.”
The two dated steadily for a year. They ran around
town with their close friends, Bruce and Janet, a couple
who would become an important part of their love story.
They remembered it as a wonderful, exciting time in their
lives.
Then, like so many others were during that time, Bruce
and Mike were drafted into the Army and sent to training
camp in Fort Gordon, Ga.
Eventually, Mike was shipped overseas to Camp Evans,
a large base camp in North Vietnam. Mike was part of the
1st Signal Brigade of the 63rd Signal Battalion, which
provided signal and communications for the 101st
Airborne in and around the base camp area. It was an
experience that would change Mike forever.
Meanwhile, Deanna and Janet carried on with their
lives in Celina.
“Janet and I had each other. I can’t say I was ever

“When we were in the car, he said ‘Do you know you put your hand
on my leg just like you used to?’” Deanna Hathaway said. She is
pictured here, with her hand on her husband’s leg, just like she
used to. Mike and Deanna Hathaway won the Greatest Love Story of
all “Times” contest.

Investors Can Learn Much From Super Bowl Teams
It’s Super Bowl time again.
And whether you’re a sports
fan or not, you can probably
learn something from the
Super Bowl teams that you can
apply to other endeavors —
such as investing.
What might these lessons be?
Take a look:
• Pick players carefully.
Super Bowl teams don’t usually
get there out of luck; they’ve
made it in part because they
have carefully chosen their
players. And to potentially
achieve success as an investor,
you, too, need carefully chosen
“players” — investments that
are chosen for your individual
situation.
• Choose a diversified mix of
players. Not only do Super
Bowl teams have good players,
but they have good ones at
many different positions — and
these players tend to play well
together. As an investor, you
should own a variety of
investments with different
capabilities — such as stocks
for growth and bonds for
income — and your various
investments should comple-
ment, rather than duplicate,
one another. Strive to build a
diversified portfolio containing
investments appropriate for you
situation, such as stocks,
bonds, government securities,
certificates of deposit (CDs) and
other vehicles. Diversifying
your holdings may help reduce
the effects of market volatility.
(Keep in mind, though, that
diversification, by itself, can’t
guarantee a profit or protect
against loss.)
• Follow a “game plan.”
Super Bowl teams are skilled at
creating game plans designed to
maximize their own strengths
and exploit their opponents’
weaknesses. When you invest,
you also can benefit from a
game plan — a strategy to help
you work toward your goals.
This strategy may incorporate
several elements, such as taking
full advantage of your
Individual Retirement Account
(IRA) and your 401(k) or other
employer-sponsored retirement
plan, pursuing new investment
opportunities as they arise and
reviewing your portfolio
regularly to make sure it’s still
appropriate for your needs.
• Stay dedicated to your
goals. Virtually all Super Bowl
teams have had to overcome
obstacles, such as injuries, bad
weather and a tough schedule.
But through persistence and a
constant devotion to their
ultimate goal, they persevere.
As an investor, you’ll face some
challenges, too, such as political
and economic turmoil that can
upset the financial markets. But
if you own a diversified mix of
quality investments and follow
a long-term strategy that’s
tailored to your objectives, time
horizon and risk tolerance, you
can keep moving forward,
despite the “bumps in the road”
that all investors face.
• Get good coaching. Super
Bowl teams typically are
well-coached, with disciplined
head coaches and innovative
offensive and defensive coordi-
nators. When you’re trying to
achieve many financial goals —
such as a comfortable retire-
ment, control over your
investment taxes and a legacy
to leave to your family — you,
too, can benefit from strong
“coaching.” As your “head
coach,” you might choose a
financial professional —
someone who can help you
identify your goals and recom-
mend an appropriate invest-
ment strategy to help you work
toward them. And your
financial professional can
coordinate activities with your
other “coaches,” such as your
tax and legal advisors.
Unless you’re a professional
football player, you won’t ever
experience what it’s like to play
in the Super Bowl. However,
achieving your financial goals
can be a fairly big event in your
life — and to help work toward
that point, you can take a few
tips from the teams that have
made it to the Big Game.

participants must commit
to the 2012 Fort Wayne
Polar Plunge by regis-
tering online at
www.firstgiving.com/soin-
diana/12fortwayne.
Participants then collect
pledges in person or
online through their own
personal fundraising
pages that can be created
during the registration
process. On Feb. 11,
participants bring their
pledges and a copy of
their online fundraising
totals to the registration
table for a final tally of
who raised the most
money to benefit the
organization. Registration
for the Polar Plunge takes
place on the concourse
from 10-11:30 a.m.
Those who raise at least
$75 will get a free,
souvenir event T-shirt, and
pledges of $300 or more
can pick from various
prizes. T-shirts will be
passed out at registration,
while other prizes will be
mailed after the event.
The opening and torch-
lighting ceremonies will
be hosted by WANE-TV
weekend anchor Alyssa
Ivanson in the “Olympic
Village” beginning at
11:45 a.m. Mayor Tom
Henry will also be there
to help kick off the event
and country radio station
K105-FM will broadcast
the festivities live on air.
Don’t want to take the
plunge? That’s ok - there
are plenty of other oppor-
tunities for fun, like
carnival games sponsored
by the Fort Wayne
TinCaps, Fort Wayne Mad
Ants, Fort Wayne Derby
Girls and Bobick’s Golf
Headquarters.
When the plunging is
done, the After Splash
Bash in the Lincoln
Financial Event Center
will warm up guests with
a concert by local band
“Sugar Shot,” as well as
food and drinks. All
awards will be handed out
at the post-plunge party.
Entrance into the After
Splash Bash is free.
Fiechter said the team
has worked really hard to
make this year’s Polar
Plunge a big, family event
and while it raises money
for a good cause, no one
can deny the event’s
“shock” value.
“There’s just something
about it,” Fiechter said of
plunging into the freezing,
cold water. “It’s like doing
that one thing you said
you would never do, but
had to try once.”

Education partnership awarded $7,500
The Benjamin H. Smyser Foundation,
administered by Wells Fargo Bank, has
awarded Allen County Education Partner-
ship $7,500 to support the agency’s two
literacy programs - Project READS and
Parent Literacy Enrichment. Project
READS serves first through third grade
students in Allen County who are
currently reading below grade level.
A trained volunteer is paired with each
student for one hour a week to tutor that
child in literacy skills. The program runs
from mid-September through April.
Parent literacy enrichment workshops
provide skills and insights to parents of
pre-K through second-grade students.
A staff of retired teachers and princi-
pals present a parent-friendly approach to
supporting what those parents’ students
learn in school, according to a release.
Allen County Education Partnership is
a nonprofit agency that tries to strengthen
education by promoting excellence in
teaching, training, and leadership. The
agency’s primary programs provide
support for pre-K through 3rd grade
literacy enrichment.
tempted to date anybody. I
guess I didn’t even think
that there was another
option,” Deanna remem-
bered. “I was in love with
this man and I was going
to wait for him. The hard
part was not knowing if
he was going to come
back.”
Deanna’s voice cracked
as she recanted the
memory. “I didn’t realize
what he was going
through over there. We
grew up in little small-
town America, so you
don’t realize what war is
all about and living in
those conditions. But, he
always made his letters
positive.”
When he did return a
year later, Deanna could
tell something was just...
different.
“It wasn’t until after he
was home for about a
month I could tell some-
thing was different. Not
with our relationship, but
something with him,” she
said.
“When I came back in
1970, everybody expected
a marriage and we were
considering a marriage,
but I didn’t know what I
was ready for. I was very
confused,” Mike said.
“That experience overseas
was pretty traumatic for
me as well as many
others. So, I didn’t know
what I really wanted and I
walked away from her. I
walked away from my
lady.”
Mike said he drifted for
a long time, not knowing
what he wanted. He later
started college, where he
met and married another
woman. They were
married for many years
and raised two children
together — Aaron and
Andy.
It was one of the
reasons Deanna chose to
leave Celina and move to
Denver, Co. where she
lived for 20 years. “It was
hard to see him around
town all the time, and he
was married and I thought
he was happy,” Deanna
said. She dated through
the years, and even had a
long-term relationship
with a man, but it never
felt quite right. “I never
found the right person, I
guess. I had to wait for
him.”
After Mike’s marriage
ended in 1990, he
returned home to Celina
to visit family — he had
moved away for work
years earlier. It must have
been a twist of fate that
walked him right into
Deanna, who had decided
to visit that very same
weekend. He was visibly
shaken at the sight of her
and that chance encounter
kept her in the back of his
mind.
When Deanna later
ended her long-term
relationship, word got
back to friends in Celina.
Bruce and Janet, who had
long been married by that
time, slipped Mike his
first love’s telephone
number and address.
“I didn’t quite have the
courage to call her so I
thought I would write her
a letter,” Mike said. And it
didn’t take long to hear
back. “Her letter was
filled with words of love
and kindness, even after
all we had been through.
We still had love for each
other after 30 years of
being apart.”
“I just knew that maybe
later in life he would find
out he made a mistake and
I guess he had, and that’s
when I got the letter and
he told me so,” Deanna
said.
That was in October
1998. In the weeks that
followed, the two spoke
on the phone almost every
night, learning about each
other and sharing the
events that had taken
place during their years
apart. Then came New
Year’s Eve.
“When we met at the
airport (in Denver) the
very first time and he told
me he came to apologize
to me, that really touched
my heart,” Deanna said.
“That was probably 30
years too late … if that
just would have happened
a long time ago.”
“That was very
emotional, I think for both
of us at that time,” Mike
said.
Deanna recalled what it
was like to be in each
other’s presence, a mix of
excitement, nerves and
strangely a level of
comfort that they weren’t
expecting.
“I just knew that I loved
him still. I just felt it. I
can remember walking
away and telling him I
was going to get the car,”
Deanna said, “When I
turned around and looked
back at him, he was just
standing there staring at
me and smiling.
“When we were in the
car, he said ‘Do you know
you put your hand on my
leg just like you used to?’
We each were remem-
bering little things that
were important to us
when we were dating. I
just knew it was going to
be more than friendship. I
just knew.”
It took just 10 months
from the time Mike wrote
that letter for the two to
say their vows in the
Salina First Church of
God — the very same
church they were to be
married three decades
earlier.
“It was emotional. We
had so many old friends
that came to the wedding.
It was just a very, very
special day. It went too
fast,” Deanna said.
Today, Deanna and
Mike live in Fort Wayne
with their two cats. Their
only complaint these days
is they’d like to see their
kids more often, along
with a grandson, Colton,
who has brought much joy
to their lives.
And to those who may
have thought about “the
one that got away,” they
have a message:
“If you’re thinking about
somebody from long ago,
we would have to tell them
to pursue it,” Deanna said.
“If we wouldn’t have
pursued this, we wouldn’t
have found the happiest
time in our lives. I
couldn’t imagine life
without him.”

Crestwood’s Village Shop, a fine art
framing business in Roanoke, is changing
ownership. New owners Wayne and Ann
Shive said they plan to “keep up the grand
tradition” of the shop and its expert
framer, Wally Orr. He is retiring after 28
years of working in framing. The original
name of the business will be kept and it
will stay open at its current location
until its new space is renovated and
re-opens later this spring. The new
location is north on Main Street, in
the old Coil Factory building. This
location has off-street parking avail-
able. The Shives also plan to expand
the framing business by adding an
art gallery, which will feature local
and regional artists
The new owners plan to offer a
“sneak peek” of their new space
during the “For the Love of Winter”
weekend event. Crestwood’s Village
Shop can be reached by phone at 260-
672-2080. The shop is open Tuesday
through Saturday, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Fine art framing business plans to relocate
Opening her office in Roanoke provided a convenient
location for Dr. Paula Neuman, who is a licensed clinical
psychologist at Northeast Psychological Associates. Her
office’s location, halfway between Fort Wayne and Hunt-
ington, right on U.S. 24, has proved to be a good central
location to work from.
Neuman’s philosophy of counseling follows the
Adlerian focus, which believes in the whole person:
mind, spirit and body. She helps individuals attain posi-
tive growth in their personal lives and operates a
counseling style that is in the spirit of coaching, which
asks questions like “where do you want to go?” and “how
do you want to get there?”
Neuman’s office space can be described as inviting and
comfortable. She has a “toy room,” which is a space
dedicated to play therapy used for work with children.
There is also a conference room on-site that can be used
for group therapy and for parenting classes.
Neuman said she helps her patients find realistic goals.
“My focus is to work with them and help them set real-
istic, attainable goals that they can work on in a timely
manner. We meet periodically until they can ‘fly on their
own,’ knowing I am here to come back to,” she said.
In addition to counseling, Neuman works with school-
aged children for educational testing, diagnosing learning
disabilities, giftedness, ADHD, bi-polar disorders and
more. She does pre-surgical testing, assessments for
adoption, and mediation for senior care. She does work as
an individual domestic relations mediator, helping to
mediate conflict and divorce by helping to provide agree-
ments for couples to be drawn up by their attorneys.
Certified in clinical hypnosis, she also works with
patients for pain or weight management, smoking reduc-
tion and anxiety. She helps patients utilize their own mind
and body connections to help make changes, in part with
relaxation therapies to help relieve body stress and mental
challenges. She is also proud to be a civilian provider for
returning military as part of the Star Behavioral Health
Program, helping troops and their families as they return
to Indiana.
With a wide variety of patients from both urban and
rural environments, Neuman addresses the unique chal-
lenges in both. Northeast Psychological Associates
accepts most insurances, including Medicare, Medicaid
and PHP. The office has appointments available in the
evenings and on Saturdays.
Northeast Psychological Associates in Roanoke is
located at 578 Geiger Drive, Suite A-1. To schedule an
appointment, call 260-676-2252 or visit the service on the
web at www.nepsych.net.

He is a certified strength

(CSCS) through the
National Strength and

“If you’re hoping to lose

Parkview Field has been ranked No. 1
nationally among minor-league baseball
stadiums and No. 13 among all profes-
sional sports venues by Stadium Journey,
Fort Wayne TinCaps officials announced.
Stadium Journey is a sports travel publica-
tion and website. Paul Swaney, editor and
co-founder of Stadium Journey, said 754
venues were considered for a Best of 2011
publication. “Parkview Field was literally
the first ballpark we visited as part of our
rankings, and it set the standard,” Swaney
said. “The apple theme throughout the
ballpark and being located in the heart of
downtown Fort Wayne created a complete
thematic experience, and a perfect way for
the team and the ballpark to be part of the
community.”
“If you ran a minor-league team and you
were taking a test on how to build a minor-
league park, this would be the paper you
would want to cheat off of.” Parkview
Field is the home turf of the TinCaps.
This photo taken at Parkview Field in Fort Wayne shows the ballpark concourse.

Free Workshop, The Eye-Strain Epidemic. Indiana Vision Development
Center, 10343 Dawsons Creek Blvd., Suite B Bldg. 6, Fort Wayne. 6:30-
8 p.m. 70% of computer users have vision complaints. Human eyes aren’t
designed to stare for hours into small screens. This unnatural use of your
eyes produces measurable “Visual Stress,” the underlying trigger for
nearsightedness, astigmatism and other permanent vision changes. Visual
stress also interferes with taking-in and taking meaning from what’s on
screen. Today, optometrists have many proven clinical methods which
alleviate computer-related problems, including prevention or limitation
of permanent changes. Many back, neck, shoulder and headaches are
related to visual stress. Participate and learn what you can do to alleviate
your vision-related computer problems. indianavdc@frontier.com. indi-
