Petition drives, bond
issue will determine
fate of EACS projects
Over the next few weeks and months, residents within
the East Allen County School District will vote on a
series of proposals that, if approved, would result in
upgrading and consolidating school facilities and build
East Allen University, a school designed to help students
better prepare for college.
Those proposals, however, have run into opposition
from those who say the cost is too high.
The first proposal to be voted on is the $10.8 million
Woodlan K-12 campus project, which would consolidate
kindergarten through 12th-grade classes at Woodlan
Junior/Senior High School in Woodburn. Yellow petitions
in favor of the proposal have been circulating around the
community, as have blue remonstrance petitions against
it. The deadline for signing the petitions was Tuesday,
Feb. 14.
Following that, residents will be asked to sign yellow
or blue petitions for the $11.9 million Heritage K-12
proposal, which would consolidate kindergarten through
12th-grade classes at Heritage Junior/Senior High School
in Monroeville. That petition drive starts Thursday,
March 1.
And on Tuesday, May 8, voters will decide on an
$88.75 million bond issue that would: spend $23.9
million to upgrade New Haven Intermediate; spend
$25.4 million to upgrade New Haven Junior/Senior
High; and spend $23.7 million to build East Allen
University on the site of the former Harding High
School. Described as an “early college academy,” East
Allen University would allow students to earn college
credits that can be applied toward an associate degree
from Vincennes University.
By consolidating facilities, district officials say EACS
will save money. A letter written by EACS Superin-
tendent Karyle Green in January said that the district’s
capital fund revenue has significantly decreased, which
has left the district with a shortage.
“In addition to the change in revenue for our opera-
tional funds, our capital fund revenue (based on property
taxes) has seen almost a $2,000,000 decrease with the
laws instituting property tax caps and supplemental
deductions,” Green wrote.
The letter added that the district can “no longer main-

East Allen home sales hold steady in 2011
Area is fifth in total home sales
Despite a drop in closed
home sales for some east
Allen County townships,
the area saw a relatively
stable housing market in
2011 based on numbers
released this month by the
Upstate Alliance of Real-
tors.
As a whole, Allen
County accounted for 68
percent of total home
sales in the region, which
includes Adams, Allen,
DeKalb, Huntington,
Noble, Wells and Whitley
counties. In 2011, the
number of closed home
sales in Allen County
totaled 3,986 out of a total
5,889 in northeast Indiana.
East Allen County
townships split the differ-
ence in gains and losses in
closed home sales: Cedar
Creek, Springfield and
Scipio townships saw a 31
percent decline (20);
Milan and Maumee town-
ships increased 18.2
percent (39); Adams and
Marion townships dropped
slighty by 2.4 percent
(280); and Jefferson,
Jackson, Madison and
Monroe townships saw the
most gains at 23.8 percent
(26).
The county saw the
most home sales in Wayne
and Pleasant townships
with 1,017 — this
compared to a combined
total home sales in east
Allen County of 365.

Youth Leadership Award - Alison Mansfeld
Alan Moore, principal
broker and owner of River
City Realty in Fort
Wayne, attributes the large
number of home sales in
Wayne Township to popu-
lation and affordable
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.
East Allen County
townships saw median
sales prices decline in all
areas by between 3.8 and
16 percent: Cedar Creek,
Springfield and Scipio
townships were down 16
percent at $92,400
compared to $110,000 in
2010; Milan and Maumee
townships dropped 8.1
percent to $96,500 from
&105,000; Adams and
Marion townships
dropped just slighty by
0.6 percent to $76,500
from &77,000; and
Jefferson, Jackson,
Madison and Monroe
townships saw a 3.8
percent decline to
$112,500, from $117,000.
Overall, east Allen County
home sellers did not see
significant change in the
percent of original list
price received at closing
from 2010 to 2011.
While 2012 will likely
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.
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 promising.
Overall, we see good
things coming for 2012.”

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 started a
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 South Vietnam. Mike
was part of the 1st Signal
Brigade of the 63rd Signal
Battalion, which provided
signal and communica-
tions 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 tempted to date
anybody. I guess I didn’t
even think that there was
another option,” Deanna
remembered. “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
Celina 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.”

tain 21 facilities,” and that
“it has become necessary
to consolidate” the
schools.
Mike Clendenen, an
opponent of the district’s
redesign proposals who is
superintendent of New
Haven-Adams Township
Parks and Recreation, said
the school district hasn’t
made its case for why
changes are needed.
“One thing I want to
make very clear is this is
not New Haven versus
Woodlan or Leo or
Heritage. Those carrying
blue petitions are from
New Haven, Harding,
Leo, Heritage and
Woodlan areas and are
against this plan for many
reasons,” he said. “Some
are against any tax
increase, some would like
to see one high school,
some two high schools
and some three high
schools,” he said.
But Clendenen is
concerned about the proj-
ects’ impact on residents’
taxes.
“The tax impact is
concerning because EACS
admitted early on that this
redesign would not save
the necessary funds to
overcome budget short-
falls. It saved significantly
less than other options.
We feel this is a lot of
money to spend concen-
trating on buildings and
not on education,” he said.
Financial solvency as
well as enhanced
curriculum expectations
were among the factors
that prompted EACS offi-
cials to rethink district
operations.
Before beginning its
redesign process, the
school district spent
months soliciting commu-
nity input. “… Dozens
and dozens of meetings
were held with members
of the community, parent
organizations, church
councils, chambers,
retired groups and busi-
nesses to discuss what
EACS constituents liked
and disliked about each of
the five options,” Green
wrote in her letter.
Green emphasized that
the “board is committed to
maintaining a high school
in each community,” and
that research across the
nation has shown that
switching to “smaller
learning communities” has
been beneficial.
Clendenen said the
opposition just wants to
make sure that residents
who sign the petitions
have a full understanding
of the issues.
“We just want to make
sure people are aware of
this and educated on the
facts before signing in
favor of something that
only represents a tenth of
what they will be respon-
sible for. It comes across
as dishonest that the liter-
ature EACS puts out fails
to clarify this,” Clendenen
said.
Losing schools in the
district is another concern
among citizens.
“We hate to see the lies
that are already being
propagated, like, ‘If you
don’t sign yellow, your
high school will close,’”
Clendenen said. “No one
wants to see these scare
tactics and false statements
out there. The truth is, if
you don’t like this redesign
or the level of tax increase
it entails to implement in
order to ‘save’ money, then
you can sign blue to hope-
fully send the school board
back to the drawing
board.”
Petition signatures will
be verified by the Allen
County Voter Registration
office. The Woodlan
project petitions were due
at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 14.

Star of Discovery Channel’s Auction Kings to appear in Fort Wayne
Certified fine art and antiques appraiser Dr.
Lori Verderane will appear March 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
statement 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.”
Do you have a treasure at home?
"Free antique appraisals will be available
as part of Dr. Lori's shows each day.”
Show Times:
Thursday &
Friday
1:30 and 5pm
Saturday

Organization made simple!
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 Show,”
as well as The Learning
Channel and Discovery
Channel. Santos will teach
three workshops at the
Home & Garden Show.
His first session
titled “Wall Magic!” will
allow participants to expe-
rience and learn the real
tips, tricks and techniques
of home improvement. As
a bestselling author,
Santos has plenty of
information to offer atten-
dees.
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
decorating.
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
products 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,
audience participation
show that focuses on the
practical hands-on
application of the three
hottest faux finishing
effects used in home
design and decorating
today.
Santos will present
many of the same
application 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
improvement education.
In this interactive session,

The Do it Best Corp.
Winter Conference was
held Jan. 26 and 27 in
Orlando, Fl. and “drew an
unprecedented number of
Do it Best Corp. member-
owners, staff and vendors
with a comprehensive
offering of educational
seminars, programs and
special events,” a press
release said.
A keynote presentation
was given by Lee
Cockerell, former execu-
tive vice president for
Walt Disney World. A
training program from the
Disney Institute was also
featured, which discussed
leadership excellence,
people management,
quality service and brand
loyalty.
“Our team worked very
hard to put together an
educational, engaging and
entertaining Winter
Conference for our
members and we believe
the record attendance for
this year’s event reflects
those efforts,” Tim Miller,
vice president of
marketing at Do it Best
Corp. said. “In fact, we’re
already working to build
on that excitement as we
plan for next year’s
conference in Phoenix.”

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-
