Stoffel Participats in Showcase

By Lamont Neal
Monday, April 21st, 2014

On the night of Friday, April 18th, Huntington North High School girl`s distance runner Hannah Stoffel, a sophomore, ran at the Flashes Showcase at Franklin Central High School in Indianapolis. The Flashes Showcase started as an elite high school meet in 2007 with one goal in mind: to assemble the highest quality mile field the state of Indiana could offer. The meet creates a unique spectator environment by letting fans cheer from on and inside the track as opposed to up in the stands. For much of the race, runners race through a tunnel of screaming fans on both sides. A d.j. plays music throughout the meet making the event feel more like a festival than a track meet. Runners are announced individually before their race and fans are informed of their past acomplishments as each athlete runs out of a tunnel below the stadium to the chorus of a high school drumline. Stoffel ran in the 2nd fastest section for girls. After working her way up to finish 7th in her heat, Stoffel`s ending time for the full mile was 5:16.29 which converts to a 5:14.59 1600m. Her time makes her the 3rd fastest girl`s miler in Huntington North history.

Friday, April 18th, 2014

The Forester men’s track & field team dominated the Spartan Classic hosted by Manchester University Thursday afternoon with seven top finished while the HU women also had a strong showing that included three first place finishes.
While no team scores were kept, HU was well represented in nearly every event with Daniel DeBoni leading the charge in sprints. In addition to winning the 100 meters (11.48) and 200 meters (22.40), he also teamed up with Wyatt Jones, Sean Sewell and Scott Skiles to win the 4x100 meter relay to tally three golds. 

Brooks Gerke did a little bit of everything including winning the 100 meter hurdles in 19.85 as the only entry in that race. He also leaped 3.95 meters in pole vault to tie with teammate Jacob Stone for first in addition to taking second in long jump (6.24 meters) and triple jump (12.60 meters).

Kai Foday brought home HU’s final top finish in javelin with a toss of 46.79 meters.

Logan Knox enjoyed his share of success in the throwing events where he finished 2nd in shot put (12.65 meters), hammer (43.85 meters) and javelin (41.73). Other top three finished included Sean Sewell in the 200 meters (3rd, PR of 22.69), Brian Menzie in the 800 meters (2nd, 1:58.84), Brandon Hunt in the 400 meters (2nd, 1:01.86) and Josh Graham in the 3000 meter steeplechase (3rd, 10:17.93). 

Krista Wood paced the women’s team with a pair of first place finishes. She won the 1500 meters in 5:01.20 and also crossed the line first in the 5000 meters in 19:37.96. Christine Sparks posted the fastest time in the 3000 meter steeplechase. Her winning time of 11:28.58 also landed her the No. 2 spot in the Huntington record books for this event.

Hannah Moore turned in two second place finishes in the 5000 meters (19:38.01) and 3000 meter steeplechase (11:58.90). Other top three finished for the Foresters included Shana Christian in the 400 meters (2nd, 1:01.98), Gretchen Spahr in the 5000 meters (3rd, 19:45.33), Holly Lutton in the 100 meter hurdles (3rd, 17.16) and Heather Johnson in the pole vault (2nd, PR of 3.04 meters) and Javelin (3rd, 27.57 meters).

HU baseball tears through April

By Lamont Neal
Friday, April 18th, 2014

The Forester baseball team continued their tear through April by picking up a pair of wins at Indiana Wesleyan University, 9-6, 8-4, Thursday afternoon at Wildcat Field. HU has posted 11 wins against just three losses during the month of April to improve to 19-19 overall, 13-11 in league play.

With yesterday’s wins, Huntington moves ahead of IWU into 4th in the Crossroads standing.

The Foresters mounted a ferocious comeback in the opener by scoring six runs in the 7th to notch the 9-6 win. The previous three innings were unkind to HU as they managed only one hit to find themselves in a 6-3 hole but Coach Frame’s gritty squad rallied back to piece together one of most savvy offensive innings of the season.

The rally started with Austin Drummond being hit by a pitch followed by an IWU error and a walk to load the bases. The next four batters hammered out hits, three of were run-scoring base pokes, with the final two runs coming by way of a sacrifice fly and the Wildcats’ second error of the frame.

Avery Sneed, Shea Beauchamp and TJ Lindstrand finished with two hits apiece, each tallying one of those in the 7th. They combined to drive in seven runs. Dylan Henricks was the only other Forester to pick multiple hits. He registered a pair of hits and came around to score three times.      

After starting pitcher Brock Gower tossed the first five innings during which he gave up seven hits and six runs, Marc Bowers pitched two innings of scoreless relief to pick up the win, his second of the season.

Huntington never trailed in the nightcap. They went through three IWU pitchers on their way to outhitting their hosts 14-8 to score runs in all but two innings for the 8-4 win.

Drummond paced the Foresters offensively by going 3-for-4 at the plate, scoring a run and driving in another. Henricks, Beauchamp and Lindstrand carried over their hot bats from the opener, registering two hits each while Michael Crowley also got into the action with a pair of hits and two RBI.

Blake Hohlbein (3-4) had a solid outing in the circle to pick up the complete-game victory. The junior hurler gave up eight hits, four runs and one walk while striking out five.   

The Foresters will go head-to-head with the Wildcats again on Saturday. Opening pitch is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. at Forest Glen Park.



HU softball splits with Grace

By Lamont Neal
Friday, April 18th, 2014

As the softball season winds down, it’s only fitting that HU’s three seniors, all of whom have made significant contributions to the program over the last four years, won their last regular season home game Thursday night. After losing an 11-8 heartbreaker to Grace College that extended 12 innings, Huntington (20-15, 13-9) bounced back to pick a 10-7 victory to seal the win on their home turf.

The Lancers took advantage of three costly HU errors in the 3rd that eventually resulted in five unearned runs to dominate their hosts, 7-2, early on. But starting pitcher Marcie McDougle battled through the 3rd inning debacle to effectively shut down Grace’s offense after that, holding Grace scoreless in regulation while her teammates methodically chipped away at the lead to eventually knot things up by the 7th to send the game into extra innings.

Heading into the 7th down 7-5, the come-back kids gave their fans plenty to cheer about. With two outs, Cristin Carter tripled in a pair of runs on a blast to left to set up what proved to be another five innings of play where the Lancers eventually outlasted Huntington by scoring four runs in the 12th to HU’s one.

Carter finished with two hits and just as many RBI. Annie Weaver pounded out three hits, scored three times and drove in another. Katie DePew was 2-for-6, came in to score twice and tallied an RBI while Emily O’Leary also picked up a pair of hits and took a pitch in the shoulder in the 7th to set the stage for Carter’s big hit.   

McDougle never left the mound, giving up 14 hits, 11 runs, six earned, and two walks while striking out 11 for the loss.

The nightcap had a much better ending for the Foresters as they once again found themselves down early, 5-1, after two innings of play but showed great resiliency. They battled back to take a permanent lead of 7-6 in the bottom of the 4th. HU would go on to outscore their visitors 3-1 to extend their lead to three, 10-7, by game’s end.

This time around the roles were reversed as HU took advantage of four Grace errors to score three unearned runs which proved to be the difference in the game. The Foresters also outplayed their visitors offensively, hammering out 17 hits, seven for extra bases, to Grace’s 11.

With only three plate appearances heading into the day, Stephanie Osborn had a break-out game by going a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate which included a pair of doubles. Shellabarger also posted three hits to go along with scoring three runs and driving in another. O’Leary finished with two run-scoring doubles while five other Foresters tallied an RBI.

Lea Buckenmyer came in on relief to pick up the win. She pitched the final 5.2 innings and gave up six hits, three runs and two walks while striking out three.

The Foresters hit the road today to face Bethel College.



Forester baseball dominates Taylor

By Lamont Neal
Friday, April 18th, 2014

The Forester baseball team picked up two big wins, 4-3, 8-5, over Taylor University (23-17, 15-7) Wednesday afternoon at Forest Glen Park to move into 5th in the league standings while their visitors dropped to 3rd.

With these wins, HU improves to 17-19 overall, 11-11 in league play and wraps up the season series with the Trojans having won three of the four outings. The last time the Trojans lost a season series against a league opponent was back in April of 2010 when they went 0-2 against Saint Francis.

It took extra innings to decide the winner of game one as the contest proved to be a see saw affair with Jared Green’s RBI-groundout in the second giving HU the first lead of the day. Taylor responded in the top of the third to deadlock things 1-1 but the Foresters struck again in the 4th when Michael Crowley doubled in Avery Sneed who had opened up play with a double of his own.

Once again the Trojans answered in their very next at-bat to pull even, for the second time, at 2-2. The next two innings were relatively quiet as each team logged a hit in their half of the frame but wasn’t able to piece together any sort of rally to send the game into extra innings.

The eighth inning was filled with plenty of action but not necessarily the type of action that either team defensively wanted as a misplayed grounder by the Foresters resulted in a Trojan run but Taylor returned the favor later in the frame. After Shea Beauchamp was hit by a pitch, his pinch runner Michael Kempton advanced to second on a single by TJ Lindstrand and then eventually made his way home by way of a wild pitch extending the game by one more inning where Dylan Henricks’ walk-off single gave HU the victory. 

Derek McKinney went the distance on the mound to pick up the complete-game win. In nine innings in the circle he gave up eight hits, three runs, two of which were earned, three walks while striking out just as many.

Crowley went 3-for-4 at the plate to go along with one RBI. Lindstrand and Sneed each posted a pair of hits.

The nightcap had a different feel as Huntington played catch up through the first four innings before exploding for five runs in the fifth to mount an impressive comeback.

The scoring frenzy included three hits and two Trojan errors with Andy Roser and Austin Drummond each driving in a run, Roser’s by way of a single to right and Drummond’s by way of a sacrifice bunt. HU scored two other runs on a botched grounder by Taylor and another when Crowley was hit by a pitch with bases loaded. The five-run inning gave HU an 8-5 advantage that they were able to ride out for the win.

Prior to that, Taylor built a 3-0 lead in the 2nd but HU wasted little time getting one back in their half of the frame compliments of a run-scoring double by Crowley. The Trojans tacked on another run in the third to make for a 4-1 advantage but the Foresters kept within striking distance by trimming the lead to one in their next at-bat.

Blake Ayers was the catalyst for HU’s first run. After getting hit by a pitch, he made his way to the other corner on a wild pitch and Henricks’ single before sneaking home on a double play. Three batters later, Brock Gower knocked in his ninth RBI of the year with a single to left.

It looked like the Trojans were on course for a win as they added one more run in the 5th to pull away 5-3 but that’s when HU’s bats erupted for five runs to completely turn the tides.

Roser and Gower paced HU offensively with a pair of base pokes. They also each drove in a run while Sneed and Crowley tallied two RBI.

John Ripke picked up the complete-game victory to improve to 4-1 on the season. He gave up ten hits, five runs and a walk while striking out one.  

There’s no rest for the weary as the Foresters travel to Indiana Wesleyan tonight to open up their season series with the Wildcats. Opening pitch is slated for 5:00 p.m.

JOIN THE RELAY FOR LIFE 2014

By Lamont Neal
Monday, April 21st, 2014

Cancer continues to remain a number one health concern for Americans. The good news is that nearly half of all cancer deaths are preventable and events like the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life not only educate people on what they can do to reduce their cancer risk, but also raise funds that lead to better treatment and more lives saved.

“One in every 100 Americans participates in this fundraising event that has become a global phenomenon,” stated Heather Byrne Event Chair for Huntington’s Relay. “Everything we do at Relay For Life contributes to reducing cancer mortality and incidences, whether it’s raising dollars that support free patient programs and services, research or volunteering to commit to advocacy and education efforts – we’re all a part of the fight and we need the community’s help.” 

This year’s Relay For Life of Huntington County will be held at Kriegbaum Field, June 14 and 15 from 10am to 10 am.  While the event is still a couple months away, planning committees are currently recruiting more teams to join the event. Teams are often made up of co-workers, friends and family members. Many businesses, schools, organizations and religious groups also build teams. Prior to the Relay event, team members raise dollars by fundraising and securing sponsorships. During Relay For Life, teams camp out overnight and take turns walking a track in an effort to raise awareness and funds in the fight against cancer.
At the event, the Luminaria and Survivor Ceremonies offer time to remember those we have lost and celebrate those who have won the battle, while the Fight Back Ceremony gives everyone a chance to make a personal commitment to take action against cancer throughout the year. 

If you are interested in starting or joining a team, log on to RelayForLife.org and follow the links to the Relay For Life of Huntington County page. If you’re not able to join a team, simply log on to make a donation. For more information, call Heather at 260-403-9730.  Together we can create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Have you ever really looked at the shelters at Ouabache State Park?  How about Kunkle Lake?  Have you heard stories from relatives about the Great Depression?
These amazing manmade works were done by young men of the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC).  A program designed to give men jobs during our nation’s toughest time, the Great Depression. 

Friends of Ouabache State Park and Ouabache State Park will present a Civilian Conservation Corp photo rich program and tour of the park on May 3 at 3:30pm starting in the Park Lodge, which is a CCC structure.  The program is free and open to the public, only park entrance fee will apply.  The Friends will have CCC memorabilia including an original CCC uniform on display.  After the program, participates will be encouraged to tour the park at designated stops to view CCC structures that were built in the mid 1930’s when the property was CCC camp number 1592.  Those that visit all stops will receive a prize. 

Friends of Ouabache State Park are actively raising the remaining funds to bring and install a Civilian Conservation Corp Statue at the park.  There is currently only one statue located in southern Indiana at Versailles State Park.  Ouabache would be the northern site.  Ohio has three statues and Michigan has five. Bluffton resident Wayne Lydy, 91 years old, is currently one of the oldest CCC veterans in Indiana.  He and his daughter, Myra Myrtle, Friends president, are the driving force and visionaries to get the statue at the park.

HU students network with employers

By Lamont Neal
Friday, April 18th, 2014

Huntington University students networked with 137 businesses and organizations at the Northeast Indiana Career Enrichment Career Fair at IPFW on April 15. More than 700 Indiana students attended the event.
The fair, sponsored by area universities, allowed students to network with area professionals from Aflac, IBM, Parkview Health, Wells Fargo, Youth for Christ and dozens of other businesses. The event allowed a number of students to gain fruitful experience and potential job offers.
“It was set up great. Everyone there was friendly,” said Kyle Johnloz, a senior business management and entrepreneurial small business management, who was able to connect with a company about a potential sales position. “Going in I was a little intimidated, but then I realized that they are looking for students for a reason. I got the jitters out and then just started to make connections.” 
Huntington University’s Enterprise Resource Center, which connects HU students with area businesses, social services, not-for-profits and other organizations to provide them with hands-on experiential learning through internships, promoted the event on campus and through social media.
“We aren’t large enough to attract this number of employers for our students,” said Kay Schwob, director of experiential learning at HU. “This allowed them an opportunity to meet with so many different employers. Even one our film students was able to make some connections.”
In addition to networking opportunities and interview tips, the career fair provided a catered barbeque lunch, and students could get a professional photo taken without charge for use on their LinkedIn profiles.
“(NICE) is important because it gives both students and potential employers the opportunity to connect face to face,” said Will Stauffer, senior communications studies major. “Nothing is guaranteed, but if you take the opportunity, something could happen.”
For 23 years, the NICE Career Fair has been the leading job fair in northeastern Indiana. Nine accredited colleges and universities collaborate to bring employers, students and alumni together to discuss employment and internship opportunities. Along with HU, host colleges included Grace College, Indiana Tech, Indiana Wesleyan University, IPFW, Ivy Tech Community College Northeast, Manchester University, Trine University and the University of Saint Francis.

Walking Home set for April 27

By Lamont Neal
Friday, April 18th, 2014

Next Sunday, April 27, at Headwaters Park, our community will come together for Walking Home (formerly known as Homeward Bound), an event to support agencies that provide support for those in our area who happen to be homeless.
The day will begin at 12:00 pm with registration, food, and fun. At 12:30 pm, local artists will take the stage to provide entertainment until 1:30 pm, when Mayor Henry will read a proclamation regarding homelessness in and around Fort Wayne. Then, at 2:00 pm, the 3.5K walk will begin, taking participants on a beautiful path through downtown Fort Wayne.
Those interested in participating in this event should visit www.walking-home.com to register. Participants can choose to join an existing walk team, start their own walk team, or walk independently. Those starting their own walk team can find recruitment materials on the site. Additionally, if an individual does not wish to walk, but would like to support the cause, they may also make a donation at the aforementioned website.
Walking Home was formerly known as “Homeward Bound.” This particular fundraiser has been in town since 2001 and has raised on average $50,000 a year to aid in helping the homeless. Each year, 300 or more people come out to not only support the agencies involved, but also learn about the reality for the homeless living among us.
In 2013, all the agencies involved decided to keep everything about this event local to this part of our state. Because of this decision, this annual fundraiser has taken on a new name and look. Despite these changes, however, the purpose of the event has remained the same; namely, to bring more awareness about homelessness in our area and raise funds for local agencies involved in addressing the needs of that population. Examples of what these funds may support include, but are not limited to, shelter, food, clothing, emergency assistance (basic needs), case management, advocacy, and transportation.
The common thought may be that homeless individuals and families are those we may see living under bridges or tucked away in some corner of a park. Even though this is true, the reality is that homelessness comes in various forms. Everything from families living in hotels to individuals living with families or friends to people staying in homeless shelters, transitional living facilities or even staying in their vehicles—all of these circumstances qualify as being homeless.
In Fort Wayne and the surrounding area, we can find all of these types of situations. The good news is, each of the agencies who participate in Walking Home (and others who are not involved) work hard to help end this reality.

The Big Impact by changes to the DSM-5

By Lamont Neal
Monday, April 14th, 2014

On Wednesday, April 23rd, YWCA Northeast Indiana will be hosting a discussion on the recent changes to what is often called the psychologist’s handbook, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). This manual is relied upon by the medical, clinical, pharmaceutical, and legal communities as a common language and standard criteria for the classification of mental disorders. This means that even the smallest change in phrasing could have a big impact on the nearly 60 million people of every race, religion, gender, and socioeconomic status who experience a mental health condition every year.
This Dialogue will be led by Margaret (Gret) Machlan, MSW, of Huntington University’s LifeSpring Counseling Center. Ms. Machlan is an adjunct professor at Huntington University, a licensed clinical social worker, and a licensed clinical addictions counselor with 34 years of experience in the mental health field. She is a past president of the Fellowship of Christian Counselors in Fort Wayne and, in 2013, she hosted a seminar on the fifth edition of the DSM for Huntington University’s graduate counseling program.
Come explore this conversation with us in this installment of the Diversity Dialogue series on Wednesday, April 23rd, from noon to 1:30 pm at YWCA Northeast Indiana’s 1610 Spy Run Avenue office. This and all Diversity Dialogues are free and open to the public. Free parking is available. To join us, please RSVP on our YWCA Northeast Indiana Facebook page, or contact Administrative Coordinator Sue Hiatt at SHiatt@ywcaerew.org or (260) 424-4908 ext.254. For more information on these Dialogues, stay tuned to our website (www.ywca.org/NEIN) and Facebook page (www.facebook.com/YWCANortheastIndiana).

YWCA Northeast Indiana takes a Stand

By Lamont Neal
Monday, April 14th, 2014

On Friday, April 25, YWCA Northeast Indiana will be joining local schools, businesses, and organizations in taking a “Stand Against Racism.” The goal of this nation-wide event is simple: to raise awareness that racism still exists in our community and that it can no longer be ignored or tolerated.
Any organization or group of individuals can take their own “Stand” by becoming a participating site and hosting their own Stand Against Racism event at their own location. Participation is free and registration is very simple: simply visit www.StandAgainst.Racism.org and follow the brief instructions. All the necessary materials and documents, including a “How to Run the Event Template” that can be customized to meet the organization’s needs, will be provided by YWCA. Each organization’s “stand” will range from gatherings at work to larger scale stands like rallies and marches. No matter what shape the “stand” takes in each participating site, all activities will echo the theme “racism is unacceptable.” Organizations are urged to visit www.StandAgainstRacism.org to join this important movement.
That day YWCA Northeast Indiana and the University of Saint Francis will be hosting a Stand Against Racism from 10:00 am to noon in the Hutzell Auditorium on the southeast side of the USF campus, off of Leesburg Road. This event is open to the public
Other local organizations taking public Stands Against Racism include Indiana Tech, Ivy Tech Community College Northeast, JCPenney, and the Victory Noll Center. Crime Victim Care, the Fort Wayne Metropolitan Human Relations Commission, and the United Way of DeKalb County are also having private events within their organizations.
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the number of hate groups operating in the United States has grown by 56% in the last eight years (there are almost 1,000 active hate groups in the United States today). SPLC’s Intelligence Report sites “immigration fears and a failing economy” as the factors that have fueled the increase. Hate groups have beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people. They promote hate, hostility, and sometimes violence.
In response, the YWCA created the Stand Against Racism in order to combat the spread of hate and intolerance, and to honor and celebrate the richness of diversity. In 2013, this event attracted over 3,000 partnering organizations that became participating sites by hosting local “stands”. Over 310,000 individuals took a stand against racism by attending one of the participating sites. They committed themselves to a lifetime of promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all people in their community and in the world. This powerful, unified, effort helped raised awareness that racism hurts everyone. Participants ranged from school-age children to elected officials, executives of large corporations, church leaders, and others. Racism affects everyone.

Improve Your Own Investment Environment

By Lamont Neal
Saturday, April 12th, 2014

On April 22, we celebrate Earth Day — a day devoted to education and action on environmental issues. As a citizen of the world, you may have a keen interest in protecting your physical surroundings. And as someone trying to reach long-term financial goals, such as a comfortable retirement, you’re probably also interested in improving your investment environment.

 

            So here are a few suggestions:

 

Respond to environmental factors. Over the past few years, we’ve had a favorable investment climate, marked by low inflation, low interest rates and generally strong corporate profits. And investors who have taken advantage of this positive environment have, for the most part, been rewarded. But things can change, so it’s always a good idea to understand the current investment environment, as it may affect your investment choices. For example, if it seems likely that long-term interest rates are going to rise significantly, you might need to review your long-term bond holdings, as their price would be negatively affected by a rise in rates.

 

Nurture your investments. One area of environmentalism involves planting seeds or saplings and nurturing them to maturity. You can do the same thing with investments — and a good way to nurture them is to give them time to grow in all investment climates. But how long should you hold these investments? You might heed the advice of Warren Buffett, one of the world’s most famous investors, who says this about his investment company: “Our favorite holding period is forever.” It takes patience to follow the buy-and-hold strategy favored by Mr. Buffett — and it also requires the discipline necessary to keep investing through the inevitable downturns you will encounter. But over the long term, your perseverance may well be rewarded.

 

Avoid “toxic” investment strategies. Unfortunately, many human activities are bad for the environment. Similarly, some investment strategies are “toxic” for your prospects of success. Consider the pursuit of “hot” stocks. They sound inviting, but, by the time you hear about them, they may have lost their sizzle — and in any case, they might not be right for your needs. Here’s another “poisonous” investment strategy: trying to “time” the market. If you’re always jumping in and out of the market, looking for “low” points to buy and “high” points to sell, you’ll probably be wrong most of the time — because nobody can accurately predict highs and lows. Even more importantly, you may find yourself out of the market during the beginning of a rally, which is when the biggest gains tend to occur. 

 

Diversify your “species” of investments. Drawing inspiration from Earth Day, the United Nations has designated 2011–2020 as the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity. And, just as preserving the diversification of species is important for life on Earth, the diversification of your investment portfolio is essential for its health. By owning a variety of investments — stocks, bonds, government securities, certificates of deposit and so on — you can help protect yourself from downturns that primarily affect just one asset class. (Keep in mind, though, that while diversification can reduce the effects of volatility on your holdings, it can’t guarantee profits or protect against loss.)

 

Earth Day happens just once a year — but the lessons of environmentalism can help you, as an investor, for all the days and years ahead.

Wells Fargo Volunteer Service awards

By Lamont Neal
Friday, April 4th, 2014

At Wells Fargo, we want to help our customers and communities succeed over the long term. Part of helping customers succeed financially-our company vision- means supporting neighborhoods and communities and all their varied priorities. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. team members attended Huntington County Habitat for Humanities – “Habpoloy” Gala as an event sponsor on March 1, 2014. During the event, Monique Dennis, Store Manager at the Huntington Office, accepted a Volunteer Service award for Wells Fargo Bank’s partnership in 2013. Michelle L. Crone received the Servant Leadership Award for her work with Huntington County Habitat for Humanity. In order to have meaningful impact, Wells Fargo team members focus on issues that closely align with the needs of our stakeholders and communities. Our unique combination of skills, knowledge, and capabilities allows us to make great progress in the areas of homeownership, environmental stewardship, community investment, product and service responsibility, ethical business practices and team member engagement. Working together, Wells Fargo team members in Fort Wayne and Huntington have raised $101,841 for the Huntington Habitat affiliate.
 
Included in the picture: Jean Wright – Huntington County Habitat for Humanity Executive Director, Monique Dennis – Wells Fargo Bank Huntington Store Manager, Michelle L. Crone – Business Banking Administrative Manager, Rosa Wheeler – Community Development Officer, Debra Lockhart – Business Banking Administrative Manager, Steve Kimmel – Huntington County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director and back row Dawn Jackson – Retail Banking Administrative Assistant.

Servant Leadership Award:
This award is not given every year, but it is given at those times to recognize when a volunteer takes a leadership role in many facets of the organization-- providing resources, talent, and products for underserved communities. Michelle L. Crone received the Servant Leadership Award at the “2014 Habpoloy” Gala on March 1st  for her work with Huntington County Habitat for Humanity. Over years of volunteerism as a board member, board President, organizer of the Woman’s Build, Special Events Chair & most recently the 2013 and 2014 Gala Chair, Michelle’s leadership has been instrumental in raising $102,000 for the habitat affiliate.





Prepare for Health Care Costs

By Lamont Neal
Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

As you save and invest for retirement, what are your ultimate goals? Do you plan on traveling the world? Purchasing a vacation home? Pursuing your hobbies? People often think and plan for these costs. Yet, too often, many of us overlook what potentially could be a major expense during our retirement years: health care. By preparing for these costs, you can help yourself enjoy the retirement lifestyle you’ve envisioned.

 

            Many of us may ignore the impact of health care costs because we just assume Medicare will pay for everything. But that’s not the case. In estimating health care costs during retirement, you may find that $4,000 to $6,000 per year per person for traditional medical expenses is a good starting point, although the amount varies by individual. Furthermore, this figure does not include the costs of long-term care, which can be considerable. To illustrate: The national average for home health aide services is nearly $45,000 per year, and a private room in a nursing home is nearly $84,000 per year, according to a recent survey by Genworth, a financial security company.

 

            So what can you do to help cope with these costs? Here are a few suggestions:

 

            • Estimate your costs. Try to estimate what your out-of-pocket health care costs might be, based on your health, your age at retirement, whatever supplemental insurance you may carry and other factors.

 

            • Know the key dates. Things can change in your life, but try to identify, as closely as possible, the age at which you plan to retire. This will help you spot any coverage gaps before you become eligible for Medicare at age 65. Also, be aware of the seven-month window for enrolling in Medicare, beginning three months before your 65th birthday.

 

Review your insurance options. Medicare-approved insurance companies offer some other parts to Medicare, including Part D, which covers prescription drugs; Medigap, which covers gaps in Parts A and B (in-hospital expenses, doctor services, outpatient care and some preventive services); and Part C (also known as Medicare Advantage, which is designed to replace Parts A, B, Medigap and, potentially, part D). You have several options for Part D, Medigap and Medicare Advantage, each with varying coverage and costs, so choose the plans that best fit your needs. (To learn more about Medicare and supplemental insurance, go to www.medicare.gov.)

 

Develop a long-term care strategy. To meet long-term care costs, you could self-insure or purchase insurance coverage. To learn about long-term care insurance solutions, contact your financial advisor.

 

Invest for growth and rising income. Health care costs typically rise as you move further into retirement, so make sure that a reasonable portion of your assets is allocated to investments with the potential for both growth and rising income.

 

Think about health care directives. If you were to become incapacitated, you might be unable to make health care decisions — and these decisions may affect not only your quality of life but also your financial situation, and that of your family. Talk to your legal advisor about establishing a health care directive, which allows you to name someone to make choices on your behalf.

 

            Health care costs during your retirement may be unavoidable. But by anticipating these costs, you can put yourself in a position to deal with them — and that’s a healthy place to be.

Something New Each Month at Café of Hope

By Lamont Neal
Thursday, March 20th, 2014

We’d like to take a minute to share some new concepts at Café of Hope.  We made a commitment this year to having something new every month. 

 

To recap, in January we brought on small size hot drinks.  Customers can now purchase their favorite hot beverages in a small; 12 ounce size, or a large; 16 ounce size. 

 

In February we added a new Panini, it’s our Black Forest Ham Panini.  This hot sandwich is savory and sweet, with Mascarpone cheese and apricot jam, and of course black forest ham.  This Panini is the daily special on Mondays, which means you can get the Panini, chips, and a drink with endless refills for $5.99. 

 

The new items for March are the BYOM (bring your own mug) discount.  This is a 20% discount on drip brew coffee, Americano, and hot tea.  Later on this discount will most likely be expanded to include other specialty beverages.  We’ve also configured our menu so that customers may now choose a Panera bagel inside of our “Pick 2” special. 

 

We also encourage our customers to download our app “Perka”.  It rewards customers for purchases, based on a points system.  As always the community is welcome to use the space at Café of Hope.  Just contact us by phone at 260-355-0055, by email courtnie@lifehuntington.com, and check us out on facebook https://www.facebook.com/CafeofHope and follow us on twitter @CafeofHope1.

“Make it Shine Week”

By Lamont Neal
Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Huntington Mayor, Brooks Fetters has announced that April 28th through May 3rd will be proclaimed, “Make it Shine Week” in the City of Huntington.  Individuals and groups of volunteer citizens are invited and encouraged to join with the crews of the City Services Department during this week and help with a focused clean up of the downtown area and our City Parks.  The volunteer teams and individuals will be coordinated through the City Services Department. Volunteer teams working through the City Services Department will be provided with trash bags to use during the time they are volunteering. The volunteer teams will also be assisted with a location to dispose of the trash they collect. Bob Caley, Superintendent of City Services stated that it is strongly  recommended that all volunteers wear long pants, closed shoes, and bring gloves.  To volunteer, residents should contact Allison Timbrook, Community Engagement /Volunteer Service Coordinator, by calling 358-2323, extension 2, or by email at: Allison.timbrook@huntington.in.us.
City residents are reminded that larger items can be picked up by the City Services Department if they have purchased an orange tag for the item at the City Clerk-Treasurer’s Office.  Residents, who purchase an orange tag, should call or email the City Services Department, at 356-4720 or by email at: city.services@huntington.in.us and report that they have an orange tag pick up.  The City Clerk-Treasurer’s Office is located on the second floor of the City Building and the office hours are Monday- Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.  More detailed information on the Orange Sticker Program is available on the City web site; www.huntington.in.us, in the City Services section, under the Department listed as Orange Sticker.
In order to help City residents clean up their properties, the City Landfill will offer extended hours the week of April 28th through May 3rd.  The Landfill hours from Monday, April 28 to Friday, May 2 will be 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM and the hours on Saturday, May 3 will be 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  City residents are reminded that they must have verification of City residency in order to utilize the services of the Landfill.  Regulations that apply to all materials brought to the Landfill must be followed.  One of the regulations that residents need to be aware of is that only household passenger car or passenger truck tires are accepted at the Landfill and there is a limit of 12 tires per household per year.  Another regulation that is enforced is that all loads coming to the Landfill must be covered with a tarp. 
It is very important that residents understand that specific items are categorized as hazardous waste and are not allowed in the Landfill.  A general list of the items prohibited at the Landfill follows:
Paint, Batteries, Motor Oil, Antifreeze, Electronics, Florescent light bulbs, Propane cylinders, appliances that contain, or have contained Freon.
These items categorized as hazardous may be disposed of at no cost to city residents at the Huntington County Solid Waste District Hazardous Waste Facility, located at the Landfill, 517S-300W every Wednesday from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM and the first and third Saturdays of each month from 8:00 AM to 11:30 AM.  Some restrictions apply to tires and items that contain, or have contained Freon, for more information on hazardous waste, contact the Solid Waste District, at 358-4886.
Mayor Fetters plans to use “Make it Shine Week” as an organized effort for people who want to be involved in serving the City as volunteers.   The Mayor stated that, “When I am out in the community I have the opportunity to hear from so many citizens that love Huntington and are proud of our City.  They want to see Huntington well cared for, clean and productive; in other words, they want to see Huntington be the best version of itself that it can be.  I believe that we have a great resource of untapped talent and energy in Huntington that can, and will, serve in volunteer efforts to help improve this city we all call home.  My goal is to use the “Make it Shine Week” campaign as a means to focus this energy and talent that will be beneficial to the City, and also give the potential volunteers a sense of satisfaction.”  The event is also being planned as a means for individuals and businesses to be encouraged by the steps the city is taking to “Make it Shine” and take steps to do the same with their properties.



The Statute of Limitations Needs to End

By Lamont Neal
Monday, April 14th, 2014

"Exactly right on the law and that the Statute of Limitations (SOL) needs to end,” Indiana State Senator Frank Mrvan said.


April 10, Joy Evans Ryder and Keith Morris, spoke at the Women`s and Gender Studies program at Indiana University Northwest about their petition to eliminate the five-year SOL on sexual assault in Indiana. Senator Frank Mrvan was in attendance and spoke his support for their mission, adding "I will work to bring a bill forward next year to that end.”


A petition* initiated by Ryder topped 2,500 petition signatures since March 9, 2014 to eliminate the five-year SOL on sexual assault in Indiana. "We are determined to reach 3,000 petitioners by the end of April which is Sexual Assault Awareness Month."


Governor Mike Pence`s Director of Policy for Criminal Justice, Christina Trexler, received Ryder`s petition of over 1,000 signatures collected in the first four days of her petition drive in a meeting March 13, 2014.


17.3% of Indiana 9th-12th grade females reported forced sexual assault compared to the national average of 10.5%. "Indiana has the worst SOL in the country and the 2nd highest rate of sexual assault," reported Ryder.


"For every assault that is reported to authorities, another goes unreported. By the time victims become strong, independent and safe enough to come forward, the SOL re-victimizes them," Ryder explained. "Twenty-six states have eliminated the SOL for rape and so should Indiana."


Joy Evans Ryder was a victim as a young teenager in Indiana. For the past several years, Joy has been counseling and helping other victims and working to give them a voice.

Concerned Festival Goer

By Lamont Neal
Monday, July 15th, 2013

I was at the Salamonie Summer Festival on Friday when the building collapsed. I was about fifty yards from the building when it came down. Looking down a crowded street and seeing a brick building collapse, is a sight I will never forget. The first thought was, there was surely someone who did not get clear. Thankfully, with an abundance of witnesses, it did not take long to determine that there was not anyone under the rubble. At this point, it was just an old building that fell down. After that the biggest hazard that I saw was the idiot drivers of the emergency vehicles, driving through crowded streets at excessive speeds. A full size fire truck should not squeal its tires as it goes around a curve in the road.



Clements Family and Friends say THANKS

By Lamont Neal
Friday, May 24th, 2013

The family and friends of Spc Chad Clements would like to thank everyone that participated in the 2nd annual softball tourney. A special thanks to Corey Eppard and Justin Hunt for the fireworks and for Stacy Stanley Hines for singing the National Anthem and for the Huntington Fire dept for bringing out the flag. We would also like to thank anyone that donated something in the way of food or sponsoring a team. The goal is to increase the tournament each year. This year a total of $1,477.00 was earned. Once again we would like to thank all of you.
