contains a “News from
You” section that allows-
readers to send stories,
photos and videos that
can be shared on the site.
The redesigned site
lets readers submit infor-
mation on important
milestones, including
births, engagements and
weddings. An arts and

Starz Academy dancers selected
to perform on Disney stage
The performance dancers at Starz Dance
Academy have much to be proud of. Recently
accepted into the Disney Performing Arts Work-
shop, the dancers will travel to the Waterside
Stage at Downtown Disney in July to perform
and attend a workshop with Disney choreogra-
phers.
Sixteen dancers, as part of the academy’s
performance companies, will make the upcoming
trip to Florida. The academy has three
performance companies, director Amy Peters
said, divided by age and ranging from 7-18.
The dancers will perform numbers both
together and separately at Disney.
The performance dancers must be able to
perform a wide variety of styles, including ballet,
tap, jazz, hip-hop and lyrical. As a team that is by
invitation only, the Starz Dance Academy perform-
ance dancers must be able to adapt to changing
styles.
“We look for students who have a passion for
dance and a desire to learn multiple styles of dance.
In the company, they are exposed to multiple
styles,” Peters said.
She knew the program at Disney existed and she
researched it before sending in an audition tape.

Little people, big hearts:
Students raise $17K for Henryville
At Willowbrook Day School,
teaching students to help others is
important. Learning about ways to
help others was especially important
recently, when a social studies lesson
evolved into so much more.
“At Willowbrook, character
building is as important in our
lessons as academics,” Head of
School Bree Ide said. “Our students
were learning about the rebuilding of
communities through the devastation
that Katrina left behind and the
discussion moved to talk about the
most recent devastation that was so
close to us in Henryville, just a week
before.”
Henryville, which is less than four
hours from Fort Wayne, was hit by a
tornado during the first week of
March and sustained heavy damage

KPC triathlon will challenge
beginners, race veterans alike
Want to keep true to
your New Year’s resolu-
tion to shed some pounds
or get in better shape?
One way to do that is to
set a concrete goal.
In northeastern Indiana,
the KPC Media Group
Sprint-Distance Triathlon,
scheduled for July 14 at
Bixler Lake Park in
Kendallville, is a great
option to help people stay
fit through the middle of
summer at least.
The sprint triathlon tests
the competitor’s endurance
and fitness in three disci-
plines, but the three legs
can also be divided among
two or three-person teams.
The event begins with a
500-meter swim, followed
by a just-under 13-mile
bicycle stage. The event
concludes with a 5K run.
The run includes a
stretch in and around the
authentic windmills of the
Mid-America Windmill
Museum.
The three disciplines
were designed to be suit-
able for competitive racers
and those who are begin-
ners to triathlon
competition, according to
organizer Vi Wysong of
KPC Media Group, which
publishes Aboite & About.
Auburn’s Cindy Yoder
became physically active
to get in shape, she said.

Employees take on a
challenge for charity
At the beginning of the month, Saint Anne Home &
Retirement Community employees began a journey into
healthier living. Fifty-two employees of Saint Anne
Home registered for a 12-week weight-loss program.
“Employees pair up a teammate (co-worker) and imple-
ment their own style of weight-loss program in hopes to
win the big prize —- money. The challenge costs each
employee $20 for a registration fee and they have
$2/weekly weigh-in fees. Half of all funds raised from
this competition will be donated to the local Alzheimer’s
Association,” a press statement said. The other half of the
funds raised will be divided up among the top three
winning teams.
“Employees will also have chances to win weekly
prizes at random for weighing in and for doing well for
the week. This is an added incentive to raise money for a
great cause, the Alzheimer’s Association, which helps
raise money for Alzheimer’s research. Saint Anne Home
employees strive diligently every week to help raise
money for this great organization and feel that this is yet
another great way to give back to the residents,” the state-
ment said.
David Hernandez, owner of Sud ‘N Impact Gym, is
also partnering with Saint Anne Home, as a volunteer, to
help the employees achieve their weight-loss goals. The
challenge will end on May 25.
Saint Anne Home employees will have weekly weigh-ins, as part of
a healthy living challenge.

Unemployment was
higher in Allen County in
January, rising 0.5 percent,
according to figures
released early this month
by the Indiana Department
for Workforce Develop-
ment.
Unemployment in Allen
County rose from a revised
December rate of 8.5
percent to a non-seasonally
adjusted rate of 9.0 percent
in January, according to the
DWD.
Allen County was ranked
59th in the state for January
unemployment. Vermillion
County led the state in
January with a 12.9 percent
unemployment rate.
The statewide unemploy-
ment rate dropped from a
seasonally-adjusted rate of
8.9 percent in December to
8.7 percent in January.
Seasonally-adjusted rates
are not released for coun-
ties.
Because of the statewide
unemployment rate
improvement, Hoosiers
will be unable to file for
extended benefits begin-
ning April 15. The federal
government only pays for
EB when the state’s three-
month average
unemployment rate is 110
percent higher than it was
three years ago; Indiana’s
three-month average rate
would need to be 9 percent
or above in order to
qualify.
Approximately 10,000
Hoosiers are currently
receiving extended bene-
fits.

Hospitals land
on magazine’s
high-performing list
Parkview,
Lutheran and
Dupont hospitals
are among the
nation’s best
regional hospitals,
according to a U.S.
News & World
Report analysis.
They are among
247 hospitals recog-
nized nationally
that are outside
major metropolitan
areas. An additional
720 best regional hospitals are in
94 major metropolitan areas.
U.S. News & World Report annually evaluates nearly
5,000 hospitals in 16 medical specialties. A hospital
needs to be considered high performing in one or more of
the specialties to qualify for recognition, according to the
publication.
Parkview was considered high performing in: ear, nose
and throat; gastroenterology; and pulmonology. Lutheran
and Dupont were considered high performing in ear, nose
and throat, and Dupont scored well for inpatient safety.
Dupont Hospital is among the nation’s
best regional hospitals, according to a

Building on a dream
Mission, not competition, drove construction of regional medical center
Mike Packnett’s voice
was wrapped with rever
ence every time he uttered
the word “dream.” And it
was a word he used often
when he sat down to talk
about the new Parkview
Regional Medical Center.
The $550-million, 1.1-
million-square-foot
medical center, one of the
largest health care projects
in the Midwest, is set to
open March 17 off Dupont
Road just east of Interstate
69.
Packnett, Parkview
Health’s president and
CEO, and other Parkview
Health officials say the
state-of-the-art facility
will: improve access to
health care in the region;
reinforce Parkview’s
mission to provide excel-
lent service; likely bring
more business to the
burgeoning Parkview
system; lead to the
creation of 250 more
Parkview jobs; and
continue to ratchet up
economic development
near the 115-acre regional
medical center campus.
All good reasons, Pack-
nett said, for building the
majestic eight-story
center, which will serve an
area of 875,000 people in
northeast Indiana and
northwest Ohio and which
has dramatically changed
the landscape for
motorists traveling the
interstate.
“We didn’t have to do
this,” Packnett said. “The
board could have made
the decision just to stay at
(Parkview Hospital on
Randallia Drive).
“But they felt that
wasn’t the right decision
for the community. It’s all
about the mission side,
and when board members
were looking at it, they
were saying, ‘How do we
fulfill our mission?’ And
there’s a certain mission
you can fulfill at Randallia
and stay. There’s an even
bigger mission you can
fulfill (with the regional
medical center) and also
keep Randallia open.”
Packnett’s dream come
true, shared not only by
him but by those around
him, plays out in stunning
detail, beginning with
building facades so
adorned with windows
that reflected sunlight can
raise temperatures in
sections of the parking lot
by 20 degrees or more —
or so it seems.
The 114,000 square feet
of windows, which afford
panoramic views from
offices, patient rooms and
lounges, was part of an
encompassing plan to
create an environment that
promotes healing.
The windows, Packnett
said, make it easy for
patients and families to
get close to life-affirming
light. In fact, in the 446
private patient rooms,
alcoves have been
constructed to allow
windows to extend 11 feet
high — beyond the height
From the air, the 115-acre Parkview Regional Medical Center campus looks like a small city’s down-
town. That’s Interstate 69 behind the medical center in this photograph taken from a Parkview
Samaritan helicopter.

Trooper
honored for
saving life
An Indiana State Police
trooper who serves at the
Fort Wayne post recently
was honored by the
National Association of
Police Organizations for
his heroic efforts to save a
Wolcottville woman’s life.
Trooper Mike Carroll,
who was off duty at the
time, saved the woman
when she was trapped in
her burning van after it
crashed into a utility pole
in LaGrange County on
Jan. 16, 2011.
According to NAPO,
Carroll, a five-year
veteran of the State
Police, was selected as an
honorable mention for the
prestigious TOP COPS
Award.
This year, there are a
total of 54 officers repre-
senting 22 states and the
International and Federal
categories who will
receive honorable
mentions, NAPO said.

“Footloose,” were submitted and the
academy heard back one week later,
inviting them to perform this summer.
Since being accepted, the Starz dancers
have been working hard to amp up their
routines and also have fun in the process.
On average, they are now practicing from
two to three hours per week, but Peters said
that will likely increase to seven to eight
hours per week as the performance nears.
The support of parents is also something
that has contributed to the group’s success.
“We have wonderful parents who are
always willing to go the extra mile for our
kids. I like to brag on them, too,” she said.
“We make dance fun.”
Once the dancers get to Disney, they will
give a 25 minute performance, based on the
academy’s own choreography. At the
Waterside Performance stage, they will
perform in front of an international audi-
ence. After this event, the academy dancers
will also get to participate in a Disney
dancing workshop, where they will have the
opportunity to mock audition to be a
Disney dancer.
Peters was pleased with the group of
performance dancers.
“This group of kids, they’re a great group
of kids. It’s a very unique thing when you
get a group of dancers together. They
support each other,” she said.
The company dancers already have expe-
rience on stages and at venues, which will
come in handy for the big event.
“We perform throughout Fort Wayne all
year long,” Peters said. The Starz dancers
perform at the Festival of Trees, Mad Ants
games and many other community events.
“We encourage these students to become
involved in activities like that. I try to
impress upon them the needs of the
community and that people look up to them
when they go out and perform,” Peters said.
As director of the academy, she said the
group is not a competitive dance team and
that the academy likes to make learning
dance fun for students.
“We are about teaching children about
dance, but making it fun,” she said. “We
make sure the kids are having fun.”
While this is the first trip that the
company dancers will go on, Peters hopes
that it will open the door for more trips and
opportunities in the future. Her own experi-
ences, as a member of a performance dance
group when she was younger, have shaped
the way she looks at going to performances
outside of the city.
“Whenever we traveled,” she said, “we
also tried to find a local dance studio we
could take classes with.”
She says exposure to other choreogra-
phers and other styles will help the students
see what else is out there.
The students will host two car washes to
raise money for their trip. These car washes
will be held on May 5 and 19, at the CVS
Pharmacy on St. Joe Center Road and
Maplecrest. Starz Dance Academy is also
working to find sponsors. For more details,
call the academy at 485-2524 or email them
at SuperStarzDancePTA@yahoo.com.

ents, we know that kids succeed when parents are
involved in their children's education. It's my mission, as
a parent, grandparent, and volunteer, to strengthen family
engagement in our local schools.”

Grant helps start
effort for rain gardens
A grant from Wells Fargo has helped to
install 20 demonstration rain gardens
around the community.
“The grant from Wells Fargo will pay
for interpretive signs placed at the rain
garden locations. The signs will help
inform residents about the impacts of
urban storm water and how the quality
storm water runoff can be improved by
rain gardens before it gets into streams
and rivers,” a press release said.
Rain gardens help to collect and control
storm water runoff.
“Water collects in the garden and
remains there for several hours until it can
soak into the ground. The gardens are
planted with native perennial flowers and
grasses to create beauty and a habitat for
native songbirds and insects that help to
pollinate other plants. Residents who
walk by the signs will be able to learn
more about how rain gardens help to
control rain water runoff where it falls,
using a system that mimics nature in an
undisturbed state,” the release said.
More information about the City of Fort
Wayne’s rain garden program can be
found at www.catchingrainfw.org. Resi-
dential rain garden workshops are also set
to begin this month.

after 170 mph winds.
After a classroom discussion, the
students were “passionate about wanting
to help,” Ide said.
Willowbrook was able to contact Rich
Cheek, who is the pastor at Henryville
Community Church.
“He was excited to get our call. He said
our call was the first he received on his
cell phone, as the service was just
restored,” she said. “He told us that his
soup kitchen is feeding 1,500 people per
day and they needed pallets of bulk foods
to continue to do so.”
The church has pledged to continue
doing so as long as there is a need, in
addition to taking a leading role in the
town’s rebuilding efforts.
Students at the school met to decide
how they could help. Jon Raney, a school
parent who owns Jonny on the Spot, a
delivery service business, volunteered to
make a truck route to Henryville. He then
offered Willowbrook students a semi truck
to use to carry the supplies to the church.
“The students decided that they wanted
to divide the truck with the two needs,
food and building supplies. They decided
to call a meeting with their parents after
school the next day, to get their help
reaching out to businesses in the Fort
Wayne community,” Ide said.
The second- through fifth-grade
students delivered a speech to their
parents and teachers to detail their plan,
which can be viewed through the school’s
YouTube channel.
In the first 10 minutes of fundraising,
students managed to raise $400 by pulling
together their own money.
“This was amazing to observe, as the
students each raised their hand eagerly to
give what they had. It started with one
student who had a $10 bill in his pocket
and within 3 minutes, the generosity had
spread around the room. The teachers,
myself and the Dean of Students had
goosebumps on our arms and tears in our
eyes. We were so proud of our students.
They inspire me every day and I am so
proud of them,” Ide said.
The idea was then announced to host a
benefit concert, and parents got on board
to help with the efforts after hearing the
students.
“Mimi Burns, a parent at Willowbrook,
from Mimi Burns Bands, was at the
meeting and immediately jumped out of
her seat to call her friend Sunny Taylor
and began making all of the arrange-
ments,” Ide said.
The school held their benefit concert on
March 15, on the school lawn. In total,
$17,000 was raised during the concert to
purchase pallets of food and building
supplies, while local bands performed for
the crowd.
Ide said organizing the benefit showed
how the Willowbrook family and the
surrounding community were willing to
help in the face of a disaster.
“The best part of organizing the benefit
was experiencing the togetherness of our
school community. I have the most dedi-
cated teaching faculty, who without
hesitation, moved everything in their
curriculum plans around so that their
students could work on this benefit. Our
teachers and parents worked around the
clock for six days to make a difference to
others. You cannot find lessons like that in
curriculum books,” she said.
The students also got a firsthand look at
what it was like to help the community.
“The best moments throughout this
week for me have been rushing into the
classroom to report updates to the kids.
We have an amazing school. It was built
with heart and that is in all we do,” Ide
said. Willowbrook Day School will host
an online campaign to collect for
Henryville through the end of March.

As her runs got longer and
longer, she sprinkled races
in to the mix to motivate
her to not get lazy.
“The races make me do
it,” Yoder said.
An event like the KPC
sprint triathlon allowed
her to work on
her endurance for longer
running events without the
wear and tear on her knees
that constant pavement
running can produce.
“The triathlon was a
good way to train for the
half-marathon,” Yoder
said.
Like many newer
competitors, her mission
was accomplished when
she crossed the final finish
line at the end of her run.
“The goal is to finish,”
she said. “I started crying
— that sense of accom-
plishment you get.”
The event has a three-
pronged purpose,
according to Wysong.
“We were looking for a
good fundraiser for our
Newspaper In Education
program,” Wysong said.
In 2011, KPC Media
Group provided more than
439,000 newspapers for
classrooms throughout
DeKalb, LaGrange, Noble
and Steuben counties.
That figure is nearly
13,000 more than 2010.
Newspapers are only
provided when requested
by a teacher.
The second driving
force behind the triathlon
is a desire to bring people
from outside the area to
northeastern Indiana,
Wysong said.
In its first two years, the
triathlon has attracted
people from counties
throughout northeast
Indiana, but also from as
far as Chicago, Indi-
anapolis and Michigan.
“It’s a wonderful way to
promote the recreational
opportunities we have in
the four counties,”
Wysong said.
The other big reason
KPC Media Group has
been sponsoring
the triathlon is because the
company believes in
promoting healthy
lifestyles. Triathlon host
partners Cole Center
Family YMCA in Kendal-
lville and the city of
Kendallville, and Kiwanis
share all of these goals,
Wysong said. “The
Kiwanis also have a strong
education focus, in addi-
tion to building
community. This is really
a full community effort,
from the staging partners,
race coordinators and the
more than 75 volunteers
who come out to help us
stage the race.”
Kendallville Mayor
Suzanne Handshoe, 51,
did the swim portion of
the event last year as part
of a city-organized team.
“It was a blast,” Hand-
shoe said. “You’re with all
levels of fitness. Most
people were there to have
a great time.”
Handshoe agreed that
having the event on the
calendar is a good motiva-
tional tool to stay in
shape.
“You have to set mile-
stones,” Handshoe said.
She suggested people
doing the run, for
example, set targets dates
for when they should be
able to run one mile, then
two miles.
There is something
besides fitness to be
gained from competing in
such an event, the mayor
said.
“Anything you do phys-
ically, it gives you
confidence,” she said. “It
is a lot of fun.”
Handshoe said she plans
on challenging the mayors
from neighboring cities to
put together teams, and
credited organizers with
their work behind an event
the area can be proud
of.

of the ceilings.
The amenities don’t stop there. There
are the stony, wooded waterfalls in the 2
1/2-story front lobby; the more than 700
dazzling sculptures, paintings and stained
glass works throughout the regional
medical center created mostly by local
talent; two chapels; 12 meditation rooms;
airy, well-appointed lounges; a full-
service, first-floor cafeteria; 42-inch
flat-screen televisions in patient rooms;
300 underground parking spaces for easy
access; six courtyards of various sizes;
and two miles of walking trails on the
campus.
Some of the ideas came from hospitals
elsewhere in the country; some ideas are
uniquely Parkview’s.
“There are three words from an expec-
tation standpoint: hope, confidence and
healing,” Packnett said. “This is built
around those three words. We want
people to feel hope and confidence that
they’re going to get the best care and
experience a healing environment. You try
to find a place that’s like this — that has
every square foot defined as part of that
healing experience — and you’re not
going to find it.”
Then there is the technology. Packnett,
Parkview Hospital COO Sue Ehinger and
Mark Hisey, Parkview Health vice presi-
dent of changing spaces, talk glowingly
about “smart beds” that can safely roll
patients on their sides or alert nurses
when they have left the bed; ceiling-
mounted lifts that have been placed in
every patient room, lessening the
manpower needs and promoting the
health of workers; monitors that are
affixed to arms, leaving no equipment on
the floor; and touch-screen way-finding
kiosks that use animation to direct visitors
to their destinations.
There are also the 22 labor-saving,
multilingual robots — upright rectangular

In all, there are 16 state-of-the-art oper-
ating rooms in the regional medical
center, including four in a five-story, 82-
bed heart institute that will be notable,
Packnett and Parkview Physicians Group
cardiologists said, for an efficiency stem-
ming from all of the heart treatment
functions being in one place.
The heart institute also includes five
catheterization labs, two of which are
hybrid labs that lend themselves to both

catheterization and surgery.
“In my past life,” Packnett said, “I got
to build a heart hospital, and so I saw
what happened to the whole heart model
when you collected everything and put it
in one place.”
In the round-the-clock emergency
department, meanwhile, there are four
trauma rooms, including one for pediatric
patients, and imaging services include
four low-dose-radiation CT scanners.
Emergency and imaging were once the
province of Parkview North Hospital on
the north campus, but the regional
medical center will essential absorb that
facility. Parkview Women’s & Children’s
Hospital will expand into the north
hospital’s space, officials said, and among
the new tenants will be an outpatient
pediatric clinic and a 9,000-square-foot,
relocated Ronald McDonald House for
relatives of injured or ill children.
Lisa Pacula, executive director of
Ronald McDonald Charities of Northeast
Indiana, said the organization is nearing
the end of a $2-million fundraising
campaign and expects construction to
begin in April and be completed by
September. The facility, she said, will
welcome its first guests in December after
adding about 100 volunteers to its current
base of 70.
Also part of the Parkview Regional
Medical Center campus are the Parkview
Cancer Center, Parkview Ortho Hospital
and a new 124,000-square-foot medical
office building.
“I think it’s going to be an amazing gift
to the community for years to come,”
Pacula said of the regional center
complex. “I think it’s an amazing health
care facility. Absolutely beautiful.”
Parkview Hospital on Randallia, mean-
while, will remain. Ehinger, who will
have the dual role of COO for both the
Randallia and regional medical center
campuses, said Parkview Hospital will
have about half as many beds as it has
now, but all 150 beds will be in private
rooms.
Parkview Hospital will continue to have
a 24/7 emergency department, serve
short-term and long-term acute care
patients, offer expanded post-acute care
and seek out senior health care opportuni-
ties.
Relatively routine trauma cases,
Ehinger said, will be handled by
Parkview Hospital’s emergency depart-
ment. More severe trauma cases will be
the responsibility of the regional medical
center.
Some of the long-term acute care will
be provided by Vibra Hospital of Fort
Wayne, which will have an additional 48
beds inside Parkview Hospital.
The opening of the regional medical
center will give Parkview Health 821
beds and eventually 7,750 employees
spread out across northeast Indiana in
facilities in Allen, Huntington, LaGrange,
Noble and Whitley counties.
The opening also means continued
economic development growth around the
campus — growth that has already seen
the construction of a Manchester College
pharmacy school set to open later this
year and plans by another entity for a
nursing home. The growth will be buoyed
in fall 2012 when a $13.9-million I-
69/Union Chapel Road interchange north
of the medical center is largely
completed, easing some of the congestion
on Dupont Road.
Parkview Health is paying $10 million
of the cost of the interchange, according
to an Indiana Department of Transporta-
tion spokesman.
“We become the anchor, if you will, for
economic development on the northern
side of Fort Wayne,” Packnett said. “It
triggers some spending by people now
that we’re here and they begin to see the
flow of activity in the area.”
Parkview Health is also contemplating
future growth of its own, already.
Packnett said Parkview Hospital is five
years ahead of projected patient volume
— a situation that portends greater
community need. Hisey noted that
Parkview Health owns another 285 acres
around the regional medical center that
could be developed. Some of the growth,
though, may come from within the 10
existing Parkview service lines, which
include heart, cancer, surgery and primary
care.
Packnett talked again about dreams.
“In each of those service lines we have
a physician leader and an administrative
leader,” he said. “And they have their own
dreams and they have their own plans.
And in each area, there will be some kind
of expansion and some kind of service
that they will want to provide better.”
Whatever improvements or expansions
come about, he and Ehinger said, will
result from a Parkview Health focus that
is less about competitive forces like
Lutheran Health Network and more about
aligning with the best practices in the
country.
“We’re always talking about being in
the top 10,” Ehinger said. “Who’s in the
top 10 percentile? We’ll be looking at
those organizations.”
Said Packnett: “We will say, ‘Here’s
our market share and here’s Lutheran’s
market share.’ But very few times is that
what’s driving us. What’s really driving
us — and I’m being very sincere about
this — is as we compete, we are
competing with who’s doing something
the best in the country. Sue and I never
want to limit people’s budgets to go and
see a best practice.”
It’s that kind of philosophy that led to
the attributes of the new regional medical
center — attributes that almost have
Packnett pinching himself.
At one point, he turned, faced Hisey,
and posed this question: “Mark, what
percentage of our dream have we been
able to build?”
Hisey, who oversaw the 3 1/2-year
medical center construction project and
who seems to know virtually every detail,
paused and appeared to struggle with the
question. Perhaps he was trying to do a
quick, purely fact-based calculation in his
head.
“I’d say 95 percent,” Packnett said
before Hisey could answer. “And in some
ways, it’s 100 percent, because we’ve
been able to build virtually all of the
dream we had when we started this.”

The most important benefit that yoga has brought to
my life, as well as many others around me, is awareness.
Awareness can have an effect on every aspect of your life
and indirectly help you make huge strides in your goals.
When practicing yoga, it’s not just about the awareness it
brings to your body with how flexible or inflexible you
are, but rather what is actually going on inside, both
mentally and physically. We have to realize that the food
we eat, our lack of exercise, and the stress we have
directly affects how the body functions.
Promoting decision making
We are surrounded by a society that promotes uncon-
scious decisions on a daily basis. The norm of health in
our society has been filled with medications masking a
problem, rather than understanding what is wrong.
Without going too far on a rant, my point is that yoga is a
great way to come to understand your body and mind. By
observing how your body responds, in some cases you
may be able to prevent taking medication and improve
your health naturally. This awareness helps us to make
informed decisions about our health.
Connecting mind and body
When starting to practice yoga, most people
come for the physical aspect of it. It helps them get exer-
cise, stretch out after a stressful day or week, or even to
help them breathe. Although these alone are great bene-
fits, soon after finding a teacher they connect with,
yoga becomes so much more. Often times, yoga students
talk about the first “ah-ha” moment they had on the mat.
This new found clarity within knowledge helps us under-
stand what helps our body and mind and what hinders it.
Realize your unlimited potential
We need to realize our unlimited potential, find appre-
ciation, and allow joy to be attainable in this life.
Awareness is developed in practicing yoga and is often
taken into your daily life. You start to notice what foods
make you feel bloated or uncomfortable, how lack of
exercise is keeping your stiff or in pain, and you observe
what causes you stress and how your body reacts.
Making your way to the mat
Awareness is just one aspect of yoga. There are many
other benefits to be seen. Please know that yoga can be
practiced at any level, from therapeutics to power yoga.
It’s not about getting into a pretzel-like move and it’s not
about asking you to change your religion. It’s a practice
that meets you where you are at the moment. It may be
just what you needed.

Every minute in the
United States, someone’s
wife, mother, daughter or
sister dies from heart
disease, stroke or other
form of cardiovascular
disease. Although heart
disease death rates among
men have declined steadily
over the last 25 years,
rates among women have
fallen significantly less.
The bottom line is
prevention. Tips to prevent
heart disease remain the
same regardless of your
age. Know your family
history, reduce high blood
pressure, lower your
cholesterol, maintain a
healthy weight, exercise
regularly, and stop
smoking are the most
important risk factors you
can affect.
In your twenties, health
isn’t typically top of mind.
You make choices about
jobs, relationships and
school, and you believe
there will be plenty of
time later on in life to
think about your health.
Wrong. Heart disease can
develop at any age, so it’s
crucial that you make
good, health conscious
decisions that will benefit
you now and in the long
run. Now is the time to get
a baseline of your
numbers such as choles-
terol and blood pressure.
In your thirties, many
women get so involved in
careers and/or family, they
neglect to pay attention to
their own health. Studies
have shown that if you can
avoid the conditions that
put you at risk for heart
disease until you turn 50,
chances are good that you
may never develop heart
disease. The first step in
preventing heart disease is
to find out if anyone in
your family has had heart
disease or any of the asso-
ciated risk factors. If they
have, then your chances
for developing heart
disease go up. Once you’re
aware of your family
history, make a point to
talk with your doctor and
see what you can do to
decrease your risk of
developing heart disease.
In your forties, you
may feel like you are too
set in your ways to make a
change, but it’s never too
late. Even small choices
can improve your health
and lead to heart-healthy
habits. No matter what life
brings in your 40s - a new
career, family changes, or
life milestones - it’s
important to stay happy
and healthy so you can
enjoy the years to come.
Start by making sure you
eat heart healthy foods
that give you all the nutri-
ents you need. Drink in
moderation. Take time for
physical activity that you
enjoy.
Life in your fifties, can
include starting a new
career, sending kids to
college or even retiring,
but one thing is sure —
your body is changing,
and those changes can
affect your heart. Unfortu-
nately, the number of
women who have heart
attacks increases dramati-
cally once you turn 55.
But the good news is that
you have the power to
reduce your risk, and if
you do have a heart condi-
tion, there is plenty that
you can do to manage it.
It’s never too late to take
actions to decrease your
risk for heart disease or
stroke.
At any age, listen to
your body and talk to
your doctor. The more
risk factors you can keep
under control, the less
likely you are to have a
future heart attack. Visit

Student works to save summer camp
Kim Smith believes that nature
can be a healing place for children.
“Nature can heal children; there’s
a quietness that can be healing,” she
said.
The positive impact of being
outdoors really hits home for the
Smith family and their 11-year-old
daughter, Mariah, who really
seemed to bond with nature at a
young age, her mother said.
Mariah Smith has attended the
Allen County Parks Summer Day
Camps for six weeks every summer
since she was 5 years old. She was
surprised when the county parks
decided to cut back on the summer
camps this year, due to a limited
budget.
The summer camps are held at
Fox Island and Metea Park. Camp
attendees learn how to build
appropriate lodging, have the
opportunity to go canoeing and
learn about being a naturalist. This
naturalist training involves learning
what plants are safe to consume and
much more.
“It’s just all natural out there,
learning about nature, out in the
water,” Kim Smith said.
The reduced camp season inspired
her daughter to write an editorial,
which was quickly picked up by a
local landscaper, Mo Palmer. Palmer
owns Cultured Gardens, a land-
scaping company and also contacted
other landscaping companies and
asked if they could help.
So far, the fellow landscapers
have raised enough money to fund
an extra week of camp. More than
$1,000 has been raised in response
to Smith’s editorial. The additional
week of camp will be called
“Mariah’s Community Nature
Camp.” To donate funds, contact
the Allen County Parks Department,
which can be reached online at
www.allen countyparks.org, or by
phone at 449-3312.

My name is Lonnie Heck. I am a
Spanish teacher at Carroll High School -
Freshman Center. Recently, I have become
the Local Coordinator for the Center for
Cultural Interchange, a Chicago based
non-profit organization that sponsors and
places high school exchange students with
volunteer host families in the United
States for the academic semester or year.
I am writing to ask for your assistance
in identifying qualified families that might
be interested in cultural exchange and volunteering to
host a high school exchange student. Volunteer host fami-
lies provide the meals for the exchange student and a
place to stay (a student must have his or her own bed in
either a separate room or in a shared room with a host
sibling of similar age and same gender). Students have
their own spending money to cover personal expenses
and have accident and health insurance through the
program. Host families are not compensated for hosting a
high school exchange student per U.S. Department of
State regulations. However, families are eligible for a
modest tax deduction for each month they host a student.
We are currently seeking host families for several 15-
18 year old boys and girls from countries such as
Germany, Belgium, Taiwan, Vietnam, Hungary, Poland,
Colombia, Brazil, and China among many others. We do
our best to match students with host families based on
similar hobbies and interests in order to ease the student’s
transition into U.S. family life and culture.
Who can host a student? CCI host families come in all
shapes and sizes and represent the diversity of American
culture. Our families are of varied economic, religious
and racial backgrounds and include working parents,
couples without children, singles and single parents,
adoptive parents and empty-nesters, in addition to the
traditional nuclear family. All host families complete
an application and must clear a background check.
Please let me know if you want more information on
CCI and hosting an exchange student. More informa-
tion about CCI can also be found on our website at
www.cci-exchange.org
Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Sincerely,
Lonnie Heck
