It may not have been

the first time parents,
students and staff at
Southwest Allen County
Schools experienced a
lockdown, but for many, it
was likely the first time it
wasn’t a drill.
The March 26 assault
and subsequent shooting
of attorney David Kuker
at his Shorewood Estates
home off Illinois Road
took place less than a mile
from Whispering
Meadows Elementary
School. The lockdown,
while not related to a
school incident, ensured
student safety while police
determined if surrounding
neighborhoods were in
any imminent danger.
They weren’t, and the
lockdown was only in
effect for 45 minutes.
But while it was over
quickly enough, it
happened while most
elementary school
students were in transit,
creating a challenge to
communicate the situation
to some parents and their
children.
During the lockdown,
the elementary school
directed students and
parents to return to their
homes while students on
buses were taken to Deer
Ridge Elementary School.
When the Allen County
Sheriff’s Department
deemed the situation safe,
the lockdown was ended
and buses brought the
students back to Whis-
pering Meadows, the
district said in a statement
following the incident.
Anita Gross, a social
worker for SACS who
works with all of the
safety programs across the
district, said the district

Center helps students
reach full potential
Walking into the Brain Balance Achievement Center,
it’s clear to see that owner Catherine Sallaz is passionate
about what she does. Her vibrant personality brings the
center to life.
Prior to opening a Brain Balance franchise in Fort
Wayne, Sallaz worked as an educator and school coun-
selor for many years.
“It was my work with small groups of children who
were struggling that lead me to Brain Balance,” she said.

Aboite music teacher offers
studio space, fun for lessons
Children who start music training early
display several positive cognitive effects,
including the enhancement of motor and
auditory skills, as well as improvements
in verbal ability.
Brittani Mitchell, owner of KinderKeys
Music Studio, sees this firsthand.
“If they learn to play from a young age,
it has so many positive impacts,” she said.
While KinderKeys teaches children of
various ages, Mitchell said she particu-
larly enjoys working with students
between the ages of 4-6, teaching them
the basic techniques.
“Though I teach older children as well,
I have a wonderful curriculum specifically
for the developmental needs and interests
of preschool and kindergarten aged chil-
dren,” she said.
Mitchell said that while students will
learn the basics, they will also have fun in
the process. She uses a CD program
called “My First Piano Adventures,” to
help students keep their musical studies
fun.
“It really is just sort of a learning
adventure for the children,” she said.
“You think of piano lessons as an adult

New venture offers
furniture, accessories
and more
Jim Brubaker Designs,
Inc. has launched a new
venture, called JBD
Home. The new part of
the business will feature
gift accessories, furniture,
home accessories and
much more.
The addition of services
was added after Jim
Brubaker and Karl
Raupfer worked together
and attracted a customer
following.
“We had a lot of old
customers asking when
we were going to open a
store,” Raupfer said.
The design side of the
company has always
worked with interiors.
“We have always done
interior work and picking
out paint. We’ve always
had gift accessories and
home accessories on
hand,” Brubaker said.
Jim Brubaker Designs,
Inc. was established to
provide clients with a full
range of landscape serv-
ices that focus on creative
design.
The same creative
elements stand out in the
JBD Home storeroom,
which features many
different home items and
services.
“We carry everything
from artwork to furniture,
to lamps to occasional
tables and silk arrange-
ments,” Brubaker said.
The business also
creates custom silk
arrangements and staging
for home sales.
Raupfer said the store
can help customers with
re-staging with their own
items too.
“Not just new stuff,” he
said.
In time for spring and
summer, outdoor living
items, such as statues and
birdbaths will also be
featured at the location.
With a new showroom
and plenty of ideas, the
staff of Jim Brubaker
Designs will host an Open
House on April 12, 13 and
14, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
JBD Home has seemed
to be well-received by the
community so far, Raupfer
said.
“It’s just been fun. We
do a little bit of every-
thing,” he said.
JBD Home is located at
909 Lawrence Drive, off
of Illinois Road, next to
the Acura/Subaru dealer-
ship. For more informa-
tion, call 260-436-3639 or

The U.S. Kids Golf
Fort Wayne Summer
Local Tour will kick off
Saturday, May 19 at
Orchard Ridge Country
Club. Throughout the
summer, U.S. Kids Golf
will head to eight of the
finest courses in the Fort
Wayne area.
U.S. Kids Golf Local
Tours provide boys and
girls, ages 5 to 14, the
opportunity to advance
their golf skills in age-
appropriate competition
without having to take the
time and incur the costs
of having to travel long
distances.
“The U.S. Kids Golf
Local Tour is a great
opportunity for kids of all
abilities to play in a
competitive environ-
ment,” Alan Moyer,
director of the Fort
Wayne local tour said.
“The golf course is a
great place for kids to
learn valuable lessons
that will help them
throughout their life.”
Similar to the PGA
Tour, players at U.S. Kids
Golf events are encour-
aged to have caddies to
help them play their best.
Allowing caddies is a
special component of the
tournaments and is part of
the organization’s
commitment to encour-
aging family interaction
that builds lasting memo-
ries. Players age 8 and
under must have a caddie
at all times.
The top five finishers in
each age group will
receive priority status
from U.S. Kids Golf,
granting them priority
registration for major
events. The Player of the
Year in each age group
will receive green status,
the highest level awarded,
which results in an invita-
tion to the World
Championship, held each
year at the Pinehurst
Resort.

Tour Schedule:
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 regard-
less of your age. Know
your family history,
reduce high blood pres-
sure, 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 atten-
tion 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 associated risk
factors. If they have, then
your chances for devel-
oping 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 impor-
tant 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 nutrients
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. Unfor-
tunately, 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
condition, 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

located at 1010 W. Wash-
ington Center Road, to

Recipes.

New charter school
plans to open in fall
The Smith Academy for Excellence has gained approval
to operate as a new charter school on the southeast side of
Fort Wayne. The all-boys charter school is now accepting
pre-enrollment applications for boys in sixth through ninth
grades.
"The Grace College Board of Trustees has enthusiasti-
cally approved (SAFE’s) proposal," Bill Katip, Grace
College Provost, said after a unanimous board vote.
Grace College and Theological Seminary was given
statutory authority to serve as a charter school sponsor
effective July 1, 2011.
The charter school plans to enroll students from kinder-
garten through 12th grades within six years of opening
and projects it would see more than 1,200 students
enrolled in that time.
Projected enrollment for the 2012-13 academic year
comes just under 200 sixth- through ninth-grade students.
Former Fort Wayne Community Schools principal
Thomas Smith founded the charter school with his two
sons, Corey and Cameron. They plan to fulfill a need for
students whose schools were closed in recent years on
Fort Wayne's southeast side — specifically the 46806 zip
code, which is an area of about 26,000 people and is
mainly part of the East Allen County Schools district.
Students who were previously attending Harding High
School, Village Woods Middle School, or Village Elemen-
tary School were transferred to schools in the outlying
area, requiring a bus ride more than an hour long for some
students.
Pre-enrollment applications can be filled out at their
website, www.fwsafe.com.
Smith Academy for Excellence
will enroll students from
kindergarten through 12th
grades.

If your child suffers from the effects of ADD/ADHD, dyslexia,
Tourette’s, Asperger’s or autism spectrum disorders, we can help.
The Brain Balance Program helps children overcome their academic
and behavioral challenges. No drugs, no cookie-cutter approach. Your
child’s achievement program is carefully tailored to match your
child’s uniqueness and connect them with success.

Franciscan Spirit Award presented
at dinner
The University of Saint
Francis awarded the
Franciscan Spirit Award
to Office of the Provost
Manager Diane Jennings
at the university’s annual
Employee Recognition
Dinner on March 23.
The university has
presented the award
annually since 1994 to a
full-time faculty or staff
member nominated by
co-workers as one who
best exemplifies the qual-
ities outlined in the
university’s Franciscan
values statement:
reverence for the unique
dignity of each person;
encourage a trustful,
prayerful community of
learners; serve one
another, society and the
church; foster peace and
justice; and respect
creation.
Jennings’ peers praised
her kindness, courtesy,
warmth, humility, effi-
ciency and organizational
skills on the job as quali-
ties making her fit for the
honor.
“Diane Jennings truly
exemplifies our Fran-
ciscan values in all that
she is and all that she
does, and she is a most
worthy recipient of the
Franciscan Spirit Award,”
USF President Sister M.
Elise Kriss, said at the
dinner.
Jennings was
presented with a large
San Damiano cross and
was honored with the
addition of her name to a
plaque listing the names
of recipients through the
years and displayed at the
university in their
honor.
The most important
benefit that yoga has
brought to my life, as well
as many others around
me, is awareness. Aware-
ness 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 flex-
ible 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
unconscious decisions on
a daily basis. The norm of
health in our society has
been filled with medica-
tions 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 deci-
sions about our health.

A good night’s sleep, naturally
A good night’s sleep is a requirement for
optimal well-being. A poor night’s sleep has an
immediate impact on how one feels the next
day, and multiple nights of poor sleep can lead
to major health problems from heart disease to
cancer. An estimated 40 million Americans
have a sleep disorder.
There is no doubt that a good, consistent
routine promotes quality sleep. Be consistent
each evening and get started early. Be sure that
your sleeping space is as dark and quiet as
possible to allow a full pulse of melatonin, the
sleep hormone, to stimulate a deep and restful
sleep.
Lifestyle factors weigh heavily in quality
sleep as well. People that spend the day eating
processed grain products and refined sugars
have spiking blood sugars, shown to increase
the risk of restless leg syndrome and other
sleep disturbances.
Regular exercise also promotes good, quality
sleep at night. For most, reaching for a phar-
maceutical for sleep becomes a necessary evil.
Taking something allows them to achieve a
decent night of sleep, and doctors, realizing the
benefits of good sleep are quick to write the
prescription.
Recent evidence would suggest that sleeping
pills come with a dark side. People prescribed
just 18 or fewer doses per year of sleep aids
were 3.6 times more likely to die than those
who took none (18-132 doses = 4.3 times and
more than 132 doses = 5.3 times more likely to
die). In addition, the high dose group was 35

body
When starting to prac-
tice yoga, most people
come for the physical
aspect of it. It helps them
get exercise, stretch out
after a stressful day or
week, or even to help
them breathe.
Although these alone
are great benefits, 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
understand what helps our
body and mind and what
hinders it.
Realize your unlimited
potential
We need to realize our
unlimited potential, find
appreciation, 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.

The county announced
late last month that it has
launched a mobile version
of its website in order to
improve resident access to
county services and infor-
mation.
“The mobile web really
is a separate and impor-
tant digital medium that
we can no longer ignore,”
Commissioner Nelson
Peters said in a press
release.
“We are pleased to be
reaching out to the public
with an optimized website
for cell phones and
mobile devices.”
The mobile version of
the county’s website will
be displayed using the
same URL as the current
full-site version:
www.allencounty.us.
The mobile site is
compatible with both
iPhone and Android.
The mobile site was
developed by the county’s
information technology
department and Atos, the
county’s information tech-
nology partner, and
required no expenditure of
government funds, the
release said.
The county's public
information office will
also incorporate a QR —
or quick response — code
in reading materials,
which allows the public to
scan the code to gain
instant access to the
county's mobile website
with a QR code reader
application, which must
be downloaded to the
smartphone.
“We are constantly
looking for new and inno-
vative ways to reach our
residents in order to keep
them better informed
about the services and
programs that Allen
County government
provides,” Peters said.

percent more likely to have developed major cancer.
What’s the answer then? Start by setting a course of
lifestyle change, but sometimes more help is needed.
I view insomnia as two separate sleep problems: falling
asleep and staying asleep. There are certainly cases of a
combination, but often people suffer from one more than
the other. Determining which affects you more will help
in choosing the best starting point.
Problems falling asleep:
- Breathe: Learning a series of breathing exercises can
have great benefit in starting the sleep process. Read my
blog post at gladddmd.com/blog on the 4-7-8 breath.
- Avoid caffeine after noon
-Chamomile tea: Drink 1-2 cups while preparing for
sleep. Caution in those with hay fever.
- Herbal products that contain Valerian, Hops and/or
Passionflower have been used for centuries without the
concerns of modern sleep aids and can work well for
assisting with sleep onset.
Problems staying asleep:
-Melatonin: This sleep hormone is best in helping
achieve a deep and restful night’s sleep. I prefer a
controlled-release version to cover the whole night. Start
at 1-2.5 mg and safely increase up to 10mg if needed.
Ideally this is a temporary need for 4- 6 weeks.
Mind racing (can cause both sleep onset and main-
tenance concerns):
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy: An amazing form of
therapy that has strong evidence for insomnia as well as
depression, post-traumatic distress and behavior change.
- Overworking adrenals: Measuring bedtime salivary
cortisol can help determine if it’s your adrenals, by stim-
ulating inappropriate night time cortisol release driving
restless sleep. If this is the case, some great assistance
can come from:
- Ashwaganda: An herb for promoting calming and
relaxation.
- Phosphatidylserine and L-Theanine: Nutrients
involved in the calming of an over-stressed system.

and a child in a room, learning the scales;
it’s so much more different than that.
Each week, new music is taught and
presented in such a fun and child friendly
way,” she said.
With a degree in piano performance
and pedagogy from Brigham Young
University, Mitchell has been teaching
students for several years. She also has a
background in teaching preschool. She
started teaching preschool and kinder-
garten age students how to play piano
because there was a need and a special
class at a conservatory she taught at in
Canada.
“I love teaching children that age,”
Mitchell said. “That’s how I was first
introduced. I’ve just fallen in love with
it.”
While some parents may wonder if
their child will have fun with the lessons,
Mitchell says that the preschool and
kindergarten age group is really ideal for
learning.
“Kindergarten is really an ideal age to
start playing the keyboard. If children at
that age have an interest, it’s a really
good thing for them,” she said.
The introduction program she teaches
also helps students effectively learn the
concepts.
“I think it’s fun that the curriculum
includes a lot of different styles, from
classical to boogie-woogie. There’s a lot
of variety in what they hear and what
they learn to play,” she said.
KinderKeys Piano Studio offers several
classes for students, which each class
being limited to six students. Home prac-
tice can be done on a piano or an
inexpensive keyboard. During the class,
each student will have his or her own
instrument to practice on.

updated schedule of summer classes, visit

Sallaz was located in
Atlanta when she saw a
posted Brain Balance
Achievement Center sign
and decided to sit in on an
informational meeting for
parents.
“I thought this could
really help children and
this could be the missing
link for a lot of kids,” she
said.
With her credentials and
skills as an educator,
Sallaz realized she too
could open a center.
“We pursued it and
things fell into place,” she
said, adding that she and
her husband are fran-
chisees. “We feel really
blessed to be in this situa-
tion where we can help
kids and their families. If
you help the child, you
help the whole family.”
Brain Balance helps
children who are having
academic, behavioral or
social problems and
learning disabilities,
which includes attention
deficit hyperactivity
disorder, operational
defiant disorder, autism
spectrum disorder and
processing disorders.
Students are individu-
ally evaluated before
signing on to visit the
center for regular
sessions.
“Every child is evalu-
ated,” Sallaz said. “We
evaluate over 900 func-
tions - physical functions
and cognitive functions.
From the assessment, we
first determine whether
Brain Balance can help
the child and if we can
help, we create a program
specifically for that child
and their needs.”
If the center is unable to
offer treatment, Sallaz
said they partner with
many providers,
connecting the child with
other resources that might
be able to help.
Brain Balance uses a
drug-free, multifaceted
approach to helping chil-
dren improve upon their
skill sets, both social and
behavioral.
The center utilizes
“coaches” - all certified
teachers - to teach
students the Brain Balance
method, which “combines
sensory-motor training
and specific cognitive
activities with nutritional
support to achieve
optimum brain and body
function,” according to a
Brain Balance brochure.
A room in the center of
the facility is set up with
computers, mini trampo-
lines and balance beams,
among other things, all of
it there to help students
reach mental and physical
goals.
“Our environment is
very encouraging and
nurturing,” Sallaz said.
“We get close to the kids
and the families.”
After the evaluation,
students are assigned a
session, which requires a
time commitment from
the family.
“It depends on how the
evaluation comes out,” she
said. “The Brain Balance
program runs for 36
sessions. Some children,
depending on the severity
of their challenges, need
two programs.”
She said one program,
consisting of 36 sessions,
usually lasts around three
to four months. After the
session, the student is re-
evaluated to see the
progress that has been
made.
“We’re improving a
child’s functioning. We’re
not targeting just one
behavior. It’s our goal to
improve their overall
functioning, and our
program utilizes a systems
approach in that we want
to coordinate with the
school. We provide parent
coaching and progress
reports along the way.”
When Sallaz first heard
about Brain Balance, there
were only 27 centers in
the country. Today, there
are 50. The method was
founded by Dr. Robert
Melillo, author of
“Disconnected Kids: The
Groundbreaking Brain
Balance Program for Chil-
dren with Autism, ADHD,
Dyslexia, and Other
Neurological Disorders.”
“The book is actually
written based on strategies
he tried with his own
child, who has severe
ADHD,” Sallaz said. “He
started sharing these tech-
niques with his colleagues
and they started using
them. That was how Brain
Balance was developed.”
In addition to her work
at the center, she also
conducts free, monthly
parent lectures at the
facility. In April, she will
cover the topic of
“Making the most of your
child’s IEP meeting.” IEP
stands for individualized
education program.
At the end of the day,
Sallaz is passionate about
helping children and their
families achieve success.
“It was really important
to make available one
more resource to the fami-
lies of the Fort Wayne
area,” she said. “We have
many excellent resources
in this town, but not
everything works for
every child. That’s one of
the reasons why I’m very
happy to have brought
Brain Balance to Fort
Wayne.”
The center works with
students through 12th
grade. Brain Balance
Achievement Center is
open Monday through
Friday and is located at
7517 W. Jefferson Blvd.

Dr. Alan D. Wolfelt, Ph. D.
Now that another school year
is drawing to a close, your
young children are a step
closer to the day when they’ll
be heading off to college. Of
course, as you’re probably
aware, higher education doesn’t
come cheap — and the costs
seem to continuously climb.
You can help your children —
or even your grandchildren —
meet these expenses by
investing in a 529 plan. And
this college savings vehicle
offers estate-planning benefits.
As a college funding vehicle,
a 529 plan offers some signifi-
cant benefits. When you
contribute to a 529 plan, your
earnings accumulate tax free,
provided they are used for
qualified higher education
expenses. (Keep in mind,
though, that 529 plan distribu-
tions not used for qualified
expenses may be subject to
federal and state income tax
and a 10% IRS penalty.)
Furthermore, your 529 plan
contributions may be deduct-
ible from your state taxes.
However, 529 plans vary, so be
sure to check with your tax
advisor. And the lifetime
contribution limits for 529
plans are quite generous; while
these limits vary by state, many
plans allow contributions well
in excess of $200,000. Plus, a
529 plan is flexible: If the child,
grandchild or other beneficiary
decides against college, you can
transfer the unused funds to
someone else, tax and penalty
free.
Now, let’s turn to a 529 plan’s
estate-planning benefits. If you
think that you may need to
reduce the size of your taxable
estate, and you also want to
create a legacy you may be able
to enjoy during your lifetime,
you may find that the 529 plan
offers a solution for you. When
you establish and contribute to
a 529 plan, the assets leave
your estate — but they don’t
leave your control. If your
named beneficiary decides
against college and you don’t
have another family member to
whom you can transfer the
account — or if you simply
change your mind about
funding the 529 plan — you
can get your money back at any
time, although, as mentioned
above, you’ll have to pay taxes,
and possibly a 10% IRS penalty,
on the earnings.
Your contributions to a 529
plan also qualify for the
$13,000 annual gift tax
exclusion, so you can give large
amounts each year without
incurring the gift tax.
In the investment world, you
can find many vehicles that can
help you make progress toward
one goal. But it’s far less
common to find something that
may give you a boost toward
two. And when the two goals
are helping a child or grand-
child go to college and lowering
the value of your taxable estate
— while still maintaining
control of your assets — you’ve
got an investment worth
considering. So consult with
your tax and financial advisors
to determine if a 529 plan is
right for you. And if it is, think
about taking action soon,
because the more years you can
contribute to a 529 plan, the
better the outlook for both
your future student and your
estate plans.
Edward Jones, its employees and
financial advisors are not estate
planners and cannot provide tax or
legal advice. You should consult your
estate-planning attorney or qualified
tax advisor regarding your situation.

used e-mail to initially notify parents.
“Phone lines typically get jammed up in situations like
this,” Gross said during a phone interview. “The e-mail
seems to get the information out more quickly.”
But for those parents who were driving children to
school, reading an e-mail wasn’t an option. Gross said
that in situations involving law enforcement that aren’t
school related, local media likely will be the next best
outlet to spread the word. Parents are advised to check
local media, especially tuning in to radio stations while
driving to school.
For students who walk or ride their bikes to school,
Gross said they will be taken into the facility by an adult,
although there were a few isolated incidents during the
Whispering Meadows lockdown in which that didn’t
happen.
“At each of our schools, any students that were there
with parents were let into our schools. If they approached
the school and they were not there with a parent, they
were brought into the school,” Gross said.
Most parents are already familiar with the lockdown
procedure. Drills became commonplace in school
districts nationwide following a highly publicized
shooting spree at Columbine High School in 1999. SACS
conducts four such drills each year — twice the
minimum requirement implemented by the Indiana
Department of Education. The district distributes infor-
mation to parents regarding drills and keeps an
informational video posted on the home page of its
website at all times, educating parents and students about
school safety and safety practices, Gross said.
The video demonstrates a full lockdown drill that was
conducted at Homestead High School. In it, School
Resource Officer Ingrid Harriott said students and staff
did not know if the drill was just an exercise or a real-life
situation.
“This is something the students are used to. They’ve
been doing it for several years. It’s just part of the normal
day in and day out of what has to be done now, unfortu-
nately, in the school to prepare for an emergency
situation,” Harriott said in the video.
“After any drill or situation, we will sit down and look
at what we can do and what we can improve on. We
continually review and revise our policy and procedures
based on experience and information,” Gross said. “It’s a
continual process working on best practices.”

Commercial facade grants
spark bigger investment
G.I. Joe’s Army Surplus on North
Wells Street has been in business for
more than 40 years, almost half of
the building’s life. In that time, the
building has undergone several reno-
vations, but its current owners had
no idea what an architectural gem
they had on their hands before
embarking on their own two years
ago.
With the help of a $10,000
commercial facade grant from the
city, business partners Shawna
Nicelley and her mother, Nyla
Doswell, moved forward with plans
to renovate the building’s exterior.
When they applied for the program,
they intended to replace siding and
install new windows. But the demo-
lition revealed a healthy brick
structure, additional entrances,
ornate detail, windows and door-
ways, all hidden for decades beneath
painted plywood.
Today, its renovated storefront
blends seamlessly with the original
character of the building.
“It’s made us feel a lot more pride
in our business and our neighbor-
hood. It feels like we’ve really
revived or breathed some life into
this 100-year-old building,” Nicelley
said. “It was kind of a shame that it
was covered up.”
It is a feeling shared by many
business owners who have taken part
in the commercial facade grant
program since it started four years
ago. On Wednesday, the city
announced its 2012 recipients - nine
more businesses that would benefit
from the program. This year, they
have awarded a total of $218,500 to
enhance the exteriors of local busi-
nesses.
The program not only provides
monetary support to commercial
renovations, but also a team of
professionals to guide owners
through the design process.
“The design review committee
receives and reviews the applications
(and) works with property owners to
put forth the best projects possible,”
said John Urbahns, city director of
community development.
The program requires that busi-

Homestead
teen gets local,
national attention
When she was in fifth
grade, Alison Mansfield was
tasked with writing an essay
about someone who demon-
strated civic virtue — who
puts the common good
before his or her own inter-
ests. Seven years later,
people are writing about her
for the very same reason.
The Homestead High
School junior is the founder
of Operation U.S. Troop
Support, Inc., which collects
and ships needed supplies to
U.S. troops overseas. Since it
began, close to 74,000 items
have been shipped. By
Spring 2013, Mansfield’s
goal is to have collected
more than 100,000 items for
the troops.
In 2007, Mansfield started
Operation Socks For Our
Troops after a local post
office clerk told her about a
relative serving in
Afghanistan who requested
warm socks. As of January,
the group has collected and
shipped more than 12,000
pairs of socks to soldiers
serving in the coldest parts of Iraq and Afghanistan. She
has even created a children’s coloring book for soldiers to
share with Afghan children.
It is that kind of goal setting and determination that is
getting the young altruist recognition on both the local
and national level. In the last month, Mansfield has been
awarded with the first-ever Greater Fort Wayne Business
Weekly Youth Leadership Award and the Heart of America
Foundation’s Christopher Reeve Award.
Both awards recognize students who demonstrate
compassion and caring in serving the community. The
Christopher Reeve Award will also furnish a $1,000 schol-
arship sponsored by Merriam-Webster, Inc.
“I was very surprised,” Mansfield said of learning she
Designer advice: To remodel or move?
Should you sell your
house and take a loss?
How long will your house
stay on the market before
it sells? Should you invest
money to update your
house to sell in a down
economy? Will you
recoup money spent on
remodeling?
These are questions that
homeowners ask them-
selves everyday when they
are ready to make a
change. Many decide to
stay in their homes and
renovate their entire
house, adding just a room,
or an entire addition,
rather than face an uncer-
tain future.
Once you have made
the decision to remodel,
work with a home profes-
sional to plan and design
the structural elements of
the space. The decision to
work with a professional,
and the dollars spent in
the beginning, will avoid
costly “amateur” mistakes
in end.
Here are some tips to
help you throughout the
process:
• What is it that you do
not like about the room
you have decided to
improve? Make a list to
remind you during the
process. You do not
want to spend money
renovating to end up
with the same environ-
ment.
• What activities take
place in the space?
This will help you
decide the ambience of
the room and the
needed changes to
incorporate your
lifestyle.
• When changing one
room — or if you have
decided to renovate one
room at a time —
select finishes that will
be cohesive with the
overall look of your
home when the entire
project is done.
• Most importantly, don’t
overlook the final
touches to pull a single
room or an entire
house together to make
it a home. Paint walls
with colors you prefer
to coordinate all of
your rooms together.
Another suggestion:
don’t forget to update
light fixtures and cabi-
netry and/or hardware
in the remodeling
process.
• To define and finish
your space, add art,
beautiful vases or
statues, candlelight and
interesting candle
holders, colorful
flowers, live plants,
“comfy” pillows in
accent colors to
brighten up the space,
and lap throws for
cuddling up with a
good book. Remember,
accessories are the
jewels of your home.
• If your furniture is
outdated or worn,
replace it or add slip-
covers.
Your home is a reflec-
tion of you, and you
should be able to enjoy it
for years to come.

Nurse and hospice center
needs garden volunteers
Visiting Nurse & Hospice
Home is a not-for-profit,
locally-based agency that
provides end-of-life care to
patients and support for the
family. Hospice Home, the
agency’s 14-bed, home-like
facility, is surrounded by beau-
tiful shrubs, trees, pathways
and blooming flowers. As
spring approaches, the agency
needs volunteers to assist in
the care and maintenance of
landscaped beds. This volun-
teer work is flexible and takes
up about 1 to 2 hours per
week. Leadership and equip-
ment is provided. If you have
skills and interest in basic
gardening, contact Ann Blue,
Volunteer Coordinator at 435-
3222 or email
annblue@vnhh.org. There is
also a special need for a volun-
teer to look after the many
rose shrubs on the property.
Garden volunteers are needed this season.

Family-friendly
block party
featured in ‘heart
of city’
Mayor Henry’s Youth Engagement Council (MYEC)
will once again host Fort Wayne’s “Almost Famous”
event on April 28. The event will take place on the 800
block of Calhoun Street from 7-10 p.m. and will show-
case Fort Wayne’s talented youth. Performances will
cover a variety musical genres such as acoustic, rock,
pop, dance, and hip-hop. Admission to this family-
friendly block party is free; however, donations will be
accepted. Mayor Henry started M.Y.E.C. as an all-teen,
volunteer council, dedicated to service-learning, leader-
ship and engagement with citizens in the Fort
Wayne area. The 17 members of the M.Y.E.C. encourage
the youth of Fort Wayne to become involved in their
community through government and participation in
community events. This event, featuring teens in the heart
of their city, meets these objectives.
Aqua Indiana and the
Little River Wetlands
Project are hosting Earth
Day Fort Wayne 2012
from 1-5 p.m. at Eagle
Marsh Wetlands Preserve
on Engle Road.
More than one dozen
conservation groups and
environmentally
concerned businesses are
setting up demonstrations,
offering educational work-
shops, wildlife exploration
tours of the marsh, tree
plantings, and other
events. It’s free, family
friendly, and a great way
to meet others working to
preserve wildlife and the
environment.
Aqua Indiana is both a
proud supporter of Eagle
Marsh, and its neighbor.
One of Aqua’s two sewage
treatment plants was built
at the edge of the 716 acre
preserve more than 40
years ago, back when the
area was just flood-prone
farmland. It may seem
odd that a sewage treat-
ment facility can coexist
with a nature preserve, but
in fact, it’s a natural fit.
Our facility processes
sewage so efficiently that
the water we release at the
end of the cycle is actually
safe to drink. The
reclaimed water released
from the plant flows into a
creek that crosses Eagle
Marsh, and our treated
discharge is actually
cleaner than the water in
the creek itself.
Aqua Indiana’s dona-
tions helped Little River
Wetlands Project establish
Eagle Marsh, and we
grant the preserve open
use of utility easements in
the area. In the future, we
hope to partner with Eagle
Marsh use some of our
land to create accessible
wildlife observation areas
for the physically
disabled.
Aqua’s involvement in
Earth Day Fort Wayne
2012 is meant to help all
organizations working to
draw people closer to the
environment, and to help
the community realize
what a gem Eagle Marsh
has become.
In just a few short
years, the hard work by
volunteers has helped
nature reclaim these
former cornfields. Eagle
Marsh is now home to
beaver, muskrat, fox,
coyote, deer, and other
native mammals. A broad
range of fish, amphibians
and aquatic plants again
thrive in the wetlands that
formed naturally when
efforts to drain them
stopped. Volunteers have
observed more than 200
species of birds, including
bald eagles. Yes, that is
how the marsh got its
name. Eagles are
becoming more frequent
visitors, feeding and even
thought to be nesting
nearby.
I hope you’ll use Earth
Day 2012 as an opportu-
nity to explore Eagle
Marsh with your family.
Ride your bikes along
Aboite Township’s
fantastic trail system to
celebrate that Sunday
afternoon. You’ll discover
Allen County has an
active environmental
community and many
interesting groups eager to
help your family connect
with nature.

I am a firm believer in
the ritual of spring
cleaning. When it comes
to the seasonal clean up,
many people believe that
the easiest thing to do is
to just throw everything
away. However, that’s not
always smart.
On a regular basis, I
visit homes of people who
are downsizing or people
who are cleaning out the
home of a deceased loved
one. I help evaluate what
objects are worth keeping,
what objects are worth
selling, and I show people
the smartest way to get
the most money for
unwanted objects-both
new and old. I remind
folks that trashing that
unwanted item may cost
you. Today, those objects
represent the much needed
money for rising health-
care costs and other vital
needs.
Far too many families
make uniformed and
costly decisions about
valuable objects without
unbiased professional
help.
I visit thousands of
homes every year nation-
wide and share my sound
advice and expertise about
the value of unwanted
objects. I show folks how
to identify the valuables
and glean much needed
cash for them.

Consider this: Grandma
passes away. In order to
put the house up for sale,
grandma’s family
members meet at her
vacant house to empty it.
The family works to throw
away most of grandma’s
stuff — beaded purses,
ceramic canister sets,
silverware. Her belong-
ings — the same items
that were perfectly fine a
few weeks ago before her
death — make their way
from the house’s vacant
rooms to the dumpster in
the driveway.
Just because grandma’s
family doesn’t want her
belongings, that doesn’t
magically make these
items worthless. Grandma
had been insuring her
personal property
including art, antiques,
and collectibles for at
least $100,000 under a
typical homeowners’
insurance policy for years,
yet suddenly her items
have no value! This is
ridiculous. You wouldn’t
set fire to grandma’s
house because she’s not
using it anymore, would
you?
Grandma’s 20-year-old
grandson probably won’t
realize that grandma’s set
of 1940s Blue Ridge
dishes are valued at $30
per plate as he Frisbee
tosses them into the
dumpster. Grandma’s
daughter doesn’t know
that her mother’s late
1880s Victorian side chair
is worth $500. Grandma’s
nephew, an accountant,
doesn’t recognize an old
family portrait painting as
a work by an esteemed

Grandma’s family
unknowingly throws away
a significant amount of
money, just as if they
opened their wallets and
threw the cash into the
street.
Some families host yard
sales or house sales to
generate some funds,
however, be sure you
know what you are putting
up for sale and be certain
that your prices are
correct. I have seen many
items priced ridiculously
too low when family
members are organizing a
yard sale of grandma’s
unwanted items. For
instance, I saw a $20,000
American Impressionist
landscape painting offered
for $10 with a bright
green yard sale sticker
affixed to its frame! Don’t
let it go until you know
what it’s worth.

Giving your automo-
bile the spring cleaning
treatment
Warmer temps, budding
bulbs and chirping birds?
Yes, spring is definitely in
the air!
While you’re outside
enjoying the springtime
sun, take a few minutes to
breathe some life into the
INSIDE of your car. (Let’s
face it: winter weather can
take its toll, inside and
out! It’s time for a fresh
start!)
Step 1 — Say “so long”
to trash and clutter. It’s
amazing how much stuff
can accumulate on the
floor, in seat pockets and
even atop empty seats.
Start by removing
anything that doesn’t
belong in your car. French
fry wrappers, be gone!
Step 2 —Remove floor
mats and give them a
good scrub. A little soap
and water will make a
world of difference!
Step 3 —Dust your
dashboard. A damp cloth
ought to do the trick, but
if you need to tackle some
hard-to-reach places, grab
an old toothbrush or a few
Q-tips and work your
magic!
Step 4 —Vacuum
everything! That’s right—
whip out the attachments
on your vacuum and
launch a full-fledged
attack against anything
and everything that is
tucked away in your car’s
nooks and crannies. If you
don’t have a shop vac or a
portable vacuum at home,
swing by a self-serve car
wash. And don’t forget the
trunk!
Step 5 — Use some
elbow grease on your
windows to get them
sparkling like new again.
See ya, smudges, dust,
and grime.
Step 6 —Declare that
no one will eat in your car
ever again. (We’re going
to hold you to that — at
least until lunchtime rolls
around!)
•••
Is it time for a new air
filter?
Well, that’s a tricky
question.
Unfortunately, there’s
no magic answer here.
There’s not a specific time
frame or mileage figure
that will fit the bill for
every driver and every
automobile.
For starters, it’s impor-
tant to understand that
there are numerous vari-
ables that come into play.
Do you do most of your
driving on highways? If
so, you may be able to
squeeze a few extra miles
out of your filter. On the
other hand, if you happen
to live on a winding gravel
road, your filter may be
filled with more than its
fair share of dirt and
debris.
So, how do you know
when the time has come
to change it?
Your best bet is to
simply take a peek.
Remove the filter and hold
it up to a light. If it’s filled
with gunk and grime, it’s
time to spring for a new
one.

On Saturday, April 21,
Roanoke’s downtown
merchants will celebrate
spring with grand open-
ings, re-openings, special
events and fun times, as
part of the Spring Fling
event.
The kick-off begins at 9
a.m. with the Discover
Roanoke 10K/5K and
shops are open all day
with special sales and fun.
There will be a grand
opening celebration for
Crestwood’s Village Shop
at their new location 314
N. Main Street. The new
owners, Anne & Wayne
Shive, have greatly
expanded this custom
frame shop to include
more frame displays and
an art gallery which will
feature local and regional
artists.
This beautiful, custom
designed space is located
in the old Coil Factory on
the corner of Fourth and
Main Streets. Located on
the ground floor it has
lots of natural light and
plenty of parking.
The hours for their
grand opening day are 10
a.m. to 8 p.m., with a
special artists’ reception
from 2-8 p.m.
They will be featuring
two artists in their
gallery: Gwen Gutwein,
known for her series of
historic Indiana barns and
for her plein air paintings
and Elizabeth Walmsley,
who creates functional
pottery with her special
flair.
Crestwood’s is offering
a special 15 percent
discount off custom
framing for their opening.
Reopening early in
April, but joining in the
celebration of Spring
Fling as their grand re-
opening is Moose &
Mollies gelato and ice
cream shop and GEMs,
the upscale furniture
resale shop, both located
on Main Street.
Spring Fling events will
also include a vineyard
lunch at Joseph Decuis, a
free wine tasting at the
Emporium and discount
specials all around town.

Online tools to help
you save money and time
Several years ago, the
only way to find great
deals was to gather the
weekend newspapers, clip
coupons, go to the store
and waste precious time
standing in long checkout
lines.
Now, more and more
websites are making it
easier to shop in advance
for holiday gifts, letting
shoppers avoid the tedious
hunting for coupons
through newspapers and
the craziness of last-
minute, in-store holiday
shopping.
Here are a few
resources and tips to save
you a bundle this spring
season from the comfort
of your home:
Online Savings Tips
* Collect coupons digi-
tally. Find great deals via
coupon sites such as
www.Coupons.Answers.c
om. The new coupon site,
owned by the popular
Answers.com allows
shoppers to get the best
discounts from their
favorite retailers on items
such as electronics, home
and gardening products,
toys and more.
Users can also join a
vast community of shop-
ping experts to share
savings tips and coupons
with friends and family.
* More email, more
savings. More and more
retailers are offering deals
via newsletter promotions.
For great savings, sign up
to receive email notifica-
tions of secret sales from
your favorite shops.
* Get social. Sign up
for an account on social
networks such as

www.Twitter.com to "like"
or "follow" your favorite
retailers and coupon sites.
Major retailers are using
these sites to get the word
out about special early
shopper deals and secret
sales.
* Shop around.
Compare prices of prod-
ucts easily via sites such
as www.PriceGrabber.com
or www.Shopzilla.com.
Also look for retailers that
provide free shipping and
free returns.
* Membership
rewards. Becoming an
official member of your
favorite retailers will often
provide you with online
discounts, free shipping
and returns, and exclusive
offers.
"Finding the best deal"

of interest from blogs to

money. These tips will
help you save more and
spend less this season and
throughout the entire year.

greatly appreciate the scholarship, what excites me most
is that through this honor, more people will learn about
the needs of our soldier-heroes. Because of their sacri-
fices, I have the freedom to pursue a high school and
college education.”
Mansfield planned to visit several top-tier colleges over
spring break and while she is unsure which one she’ll
choose, she plans to major in comparative literature or
English, and eventually move on to a graduate degree.
When the time does come for college, Mansfield has no
plans to let the light burn out on her service-centered
endeavors. She intends to run Operation U.S. Troop
Support from wherever she ends up with the help of local
support.
“Our donor base is nationwide, so with technology and
motivated volunteers, it will be exciting to see how the
organization continues to evolve and grow,” Mansfield
said.
With the drawdown of troops in Afghanistan, Mansfield
predicts Operation U.S. Troop Support will likely shift
some of the focus of their efforts to recovering soldiers
stateside.
“However, there are still thousands of soldiers in
Afghanistan and continuation of our efforts on their
behalf is important,” she said.
To start a drive for the troops, e-mail operationustroop-
support@live.com or call 260-312-3916. A list of
suggested donation items can be found at www.opera-

Fort Wayne air cargo hub lands second tenant
The former Kitty Hawk air cargo hub complex at Fort
Wayne International Airport has a second tenant to help
defray some of the financial costs borne by the Fort
Wayne-Allen County Airport Authority.
Carmel-based C&J Services & Supplies plans to start
leasing a 33,500-square-foot maintenance building
starting April 1 for $105,000 per year, said Patrick
Dooley, vice president of airport development for the Fort
Wayne-Allen County Economic Development Alliance.
“Their business is growing and needed a facility for
additional production and distribution and became aware
of our building through the alliance, and a broker pursued
that. It’s a great facility for the type of use they’re going
to have in there,” he said.
C&J started in 2001 as a U.S. military sourcing
company and has expanded into packaging and logistics,
and commercial procurement services. The company will
do some tractor-trailer customization work in the space it
will be leasing, which will be able to store at least eight
of the semis.

Trooper honored
for saving life
An Indiana State Police trooper who serves at the Fort
Wayne post recently was honored by the National Associ-
ation 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.
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 representing
22 states and the International and Federal categories who
will receive honorable mentions, NAPO said.

sought for IPFW
intern program
Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne said
it still has openings for northeast Indiana startup compa-
nies to take part in a program that covers more than half
the cost an intern for 10 weeks. IPFW said the Lilly
Endowment-funded Interns for Indiana program will
provide valuable educational experiences for its students
while helping high-tech, advanced manufacturing or life
sciences startup companies in the area. Participating
students will work 400 hours in each of the internships
and receive a $4,500 stipend from IPFW instead of
wages. Participating companies must have been founded
recently by entrepreneurs, and they must provide a
$2,000 membership fee to help cover part of the student
stipend. For more information, contact Debra Barrick,
director of IPFW’s Office of Academic Internships,
Cooperative Education and Service Learning, at (260)

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 inter-
pretive 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 polli-
nate 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 undis-
turbed state,” the release
said.
More information about
the City of Fort Wayne’s
rain garden program can
be found at www.catchin-
grainfw.org. Residential
rain garden workshops are
also set to begin this
month.

Richardson departs airports;
board picks successor
The Fort Wayne-Allen County
Airport Authority has promoted its
director of operations and facilities
to executive director of airports.
Scott Hinderman had been the
authority’s operations director since
May 2007. Torrance Richardson,
who has served as airports director
since January 2004, is headed to the
Columbus Regional Airport
Authority to become its vice presi-
dent of government affairs and
strategy.
“This is a great organization and
community,” Richardson said in a
statement. “I am sincerely grateful
for the support I have received from
the board, staff and community
leaders. We have accomplished so
much together and I have thoroughly
enjoyed the opportunities.
“During the past eight years, we
have invested millions of dollars
through the completion of numerous
projects at Fort Wayne International
and Smith Field airports. Those
investments will serve us well into
the future.”
“Tory was instrumental improving
organizational efficiencies, imple-
menting our master plan and setting
the stage for the next chapter for the
community’s airports. He has served
us well and we wish him the best for
the next phase of his career,”
Michael Gouloff, president of the
authority’s board, said in the state-
ment.
Richardson submitted his resigna-
tion to the authority at its Monday
board meeting, and Hinderman was
appointed as his immediate
successor.
“We have been working on
succession planning amongst the
directors for some time now, and we
are moving forward with its imple-
mentation today,” Gouloff said in the
statement.
“Scott was tapped as a high poten-
tial successor for the top position,
and we are pleased with his perform-
ance. We look forward to his
leadership.”

ness owners match grants
dollar-for-dollar. But offi-
cials have found that
owners are investing
beyond the match:
Nicelley planned on a
$10,000 match, but as she
worked with the city’s
design review committee,
she saw the potential to
do more - $10,000 more.
Many times, the
committee will suggest
project modifications or
additions to help owners
see the building’s full
potential, Urbahns said,
often prompting the
owner to invest more
money to make it a
“better” project.
While the city has so
far granted $732,000 in
commercial facade grants
since the program started,
recipients have invested
$2.5 million. Some are
investing three to four
times the grant amount,
according to Fort Wayne
Mayor Tom Henry. This
year’s facade grant
awardees have pledged to
contribute about $415,446
in private investment to
make improvements on
their properties.
“We didn’t see the
potential that was there,”
Nicelley said. “(The
committee was) happy to
go ahead and allow us to
make changes because it
ended up making it a
better project. They’re
educated in areas that
we’re not as business
owners. We can’t always
see the big picture. When
I drive by my store now, I
could never have imag-
ined that it could look that
nice.”
Now, Nicelley is
working with a new grant
to renovate another
building on North Wells
that she bought at auction
last year. She calls it her
“1950s diner.”
“It just has the most
charming awning on it,
and you can’t tell because
it’s painted brown and it’s
so unnoticeable,” she said.
So unnoticeable, that even
Nicelley didn’t think
much of it until a member
of the design review
committee suggested she
keep the awning and make
a theme of it. “I thought,
well why not?” she said.
With the addition of
neon lighting and outdoor
tables and chairs, her hope
is that a restaurant or
retailer looking for a retro
vibe will find a home
there.
“At least I can make it
look nicer and if I end up
renting it or selling it, it
doesn’t matter because
I’m staying on Wells
Street. I’m going to build
my business up for my
kids because I’m taking it
over for my mother. I
want that business to be
there in 20 years for my
children.”

Logistics Insight
announced last September
it would be leasing
105,000 square feet of the
hub’s 266,000-square-foot
cargo sorting facility,
which had been vacant
since Kitty Hawk filed for
bankruptcy and shut
down in 2007.
Logistics Insight is
paying an occupancy fee
amounting to $283,302
for each of the first two
years and $291,800 for
each of the last two years
of its four-year contract
for the space.
The authority had been
seeking a replacement
aviation tenant to help
cover the cost of debt that
funded the cargo hub’s
construction - a cost
previously covered by
Kitty Hawk’s monthly
lease payments of
$168,775.
The authority is obli-
gated to make bond
payments of about $2
million annually until
2020. Lease payments
that come from tenants in
the hub will reduce the
debt-service levy that
covers them.

Southern hospitality,

23, at 11 a.m. Members of the Rousseau
family will be in attendance and will help
unveil a plaque in his honor, according to
a release.
Rousseau’s career in Allen County and
Fort Wayne politics spanned 40 years and
included terms as a city councilman,
county councilman and county commis-
sioner. Rousseau died in 2009 following a
lengthy battle with cancer at the age of
76.
The building at 1 E. Main St. has been
renovated to serve as headquarters for city
and county police and the city fire depart-
ment. Several county government offices
will continue to operate there, including
those of the assessor, auditor, recorder
and treasurer.
