Extra News - The Waynedale Newspaper http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/ Fri, 19 Sep 2014 00:41:54 GMT FeedCreator 1.8.0-dev (info@mypapit.net) PRESERVE THE HARVEST FOR WINTER MEALS AND HOLIDAY GIFTS http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/outdoors/11651-preserve-the-harvest-for-winter-meals-and-holiday-gifts.html The cucumbers have filled the vegetable drawer, you've run out of cabbage recipes and your family is refusing to eat one more BLT. Or maybe you just couldn't resist that special deal on a bushel of tomatoes, potatoes or apples at the farmer's market. So what is a gardener or shopper to do with all that produce?

Since properly stored vegetables will hold their flavor and nutritional value longer than those left in a plastic bag or set on the sunny kitchen counter, consider preserving some for the long winter ahead using one of several methods.

Storage orchard racks and slatted crates placed in a cool dark location have long been used to store squash, onions and potatoes. The stackable nature or drawers provide ample storage space, so fruits and vegetables do not touch.  Keeping stored fruit separated prevents rot from spreading from one fruit to the next. Plus, the slatted sides

TURN YOUR MEDICINE CHEST INTO A FIRST-AID CABINET - A Healthy Day http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/heath/11652-turn-your-medicine-chest-into-a-first-aid-cabinet-a-healthy-day.html Many people have medicine chests in their bathroom, small shelving units filled with bottles of pills, capsules, and tablets. Others, instead, have first-aid and personal grooming cabinets in their bathrooms, containing rows of bandages, tubes of antiseptic, rubbing alcohol, and adhesive tape, as well as dental care supplies, shaving supplies, and sample-size bottles of shampoo. Of course, we can't always draw accurate conclusions about a person's lifestyle and level of health from the contents of his or her bathroom cabinet. But most of us, if we could choose, would likely want to focus on personal grooming and first aid rather than prescription medications. The key question is how we can actually make such a choice.

From the medicine chest perspective, many people have various disorders that require them to take prescription medications on a short-term or long-term basis. Persons with type 2 diabetes need to take regular doses of drugs such

HAVING “THE TALK” - PART 2 http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/heath/11653-having-the-talk-part-2.html In the last issue, we discussed talking to your parents about giving up their car keys. Today we're going to talk about broaching the subject of moving to assisted living with them. This is a subject that is very dear to MY heart, as I was Director of Admissions for an Assisted Living Community for nearly five years, and still consider many of the residents there to be part of my family.

The first thing I will tell you is this, and if you know me, you've heard me say this a thousand times, "It's an Assisted Living Community, not a FACILITY." My thought on this is, facilities have bars on the doors and windows, communities are made up of friends and neighbors. Once you get past referring to it as a facility, it should be smooth sailing from then on!

PREPARING YOUNG HOOSIERS FOR COLLEGE - Straight From The Senate http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11654-preparing-young-hoosiers-for-college-straight-from-the-senate.html Indiana's economy is growing and advancing. Our workforce must also grow and adapt to meet the demands of a competitive job market.

Vocational training and a college education are becoming more vital for securing high-quality, long-term employment. With that in mind, it's never too early to prepare young Hoosiers for college.

To get elementary, middle and high schools across the state more involved and informed about preparing these students for college, Learn More Indiana facilitates College GO! Week. This week of college planning activities is meant to provide kids an understanding of what steps they must take now to help ensure they're prepared for their future – financially and academically.

This year, the kick-off week is September 22-26. However, schools are encouraged to host their own activities during any specified week throughout the fall. Learn More Indiana will award financial grants to three schools that complete a College GO! Week and submit an

FIGHT FOR A FITTER FORT - Message From The Mayor http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11655-fight-for-a-fitter-fort-message-from-the-mayor.html A commitment to developing healthier lifestyles was unveiled recently as part of an innovative program created by Fort Wayne resident Chris Blake and endorsed by my office.

Operation F4 Fight for a Fitter Fort (OPF4) is a community wellness initiative to encourage individuals to implement lifestyle changes that include fitness, nutrition, wellness, and activities. OPF4's mission is for residents to lose a collective 500,000 pounds by the end of 2016.

How OPF4 works:
-Sign up as individuals or teams and enter current health information as directed.

-Individuals will learn how to structure exercise and eating for healthy results.

-Individuals/teams will be able to log in and track progress. Calculators will automatically tabulate the City's collective results.

FEELING A SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT - Voice Of The Township http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11656-feeling-a-sense-of-accomplishment-voice-of-the-township.html When I was a child, I associated the Labor Day Holiday with the start of the Fall school session, because it always began the Wednesday after Labor Day. Now the return begins before Labor Day for most schools. When heading to work in the early morning hours, I see children carrying their book bags or back packs, and heading to their bus stops. Some bags appear to be too heavy or too large for the children.

On one particular day I saw my 5 year old nephew after he attended a day of pre-kindergarten. He was in a playful mood and full of energy. He was running around outside having fun, as though the day had just begun. Late in the evening I saw my niece Kaylah returning home from a day of school activities. She was not quite as energetic as Ben had appeared.

Kaylah is a typical eighth grade student.

INDIANA SUPREME COURT CHIEF JUSTICE NAMES BOBAY TO COMMITTEE http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11657-indiana-supreme-court-chief-justice-names-bobay-to-committee.html Bobay-CraigAllen Superior Court Judge Craig J. Bobay has been appointed by Indiana Chief Justice Loretta Rush to the Judicial Administration Committee of the Indiana Judicial Center.

The Judicial Administration Committee works on projects of vital interest to Indiana's trial court judges. The committee is working on revisions to the Judicial Weighted Caseload System, a statewide method of uniformly comparing trial court caseloads.  The Weighted Caseload System also allows courts to accurately forecast the judicial resources that will be necessary to process their cases.

"Hoosiers expect equal access to justice, no matter what Court their case is filed in," Judge Bobay said. "The Weighted Caseload System gives Courts a tool for preventing backlogs and delay. I appreciate being able to participate in the important work of making sure our Courts operate as effectively as possible."

The 2013 weighted caseload data indicates that the statewide average utilization is 1.2. This

THE END OF SUMMER - News From The Hills http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/leisure/11661-the-end-of-summer-news-from-the-hills.html By Shannon Georgia Schaubroeck
The summer days are fading, as they must
From endless hours to short and fleeting light
The bird's once bright, immortal tune, now cries
A melancholy aura to the dusk.
The children fiercely climb, and dream, and race
Before their wild and unchained days depart.
And yet, beneath the zeal lies a half heart
For there isn't time, there's only enough space.
The sun seems low, a hazy orange sphere
Now reminiscing sweetly of the days
When endlessly before you summer lay
And as in the deep crimson dusk you stir
Your soul joins with the birds in wistful brood
Crying for lost summer days, for childhood.

September sings her siren song in the hills, edging out summer and spreading an autumnal haze over the land. Very slowly, almost imperceptibly, a golden hue is creeping upward on the green leaves of the trees. The flourishing plant life

"THE NOVEMBER MAN" IS DARK AND BROODING - At The Movies With Kasey http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/opinion/11663-the-november-man-is-dark-and-brooding-at-the-movies-with-kasey.html Last weekend, I saw one of the worst movies I've seen in years—The November Man. Like with Winter's Tale, I'm going to tell you about the whole story, because I'm not recommending that you suffer through it yourself.

The November Man opens with the high-speed car chase and exchange of fire you'd expect in an action movie. Natalia Ulanova (Mediha Musliovic) is trying to escape from "the Russians" because she's flipped and is helping the CIA (I think). Just when things get dire, Devereaux (Pierce Brosnan) suddenly shows up to save her. They race around some more, but Natalia is assassinated by Mason (Luke Bracey), a CIA agent with a mysterious past relationship with Devereaux, who has a mysterious past relationship with Natalia. It's all very dark and brooding. The secrets come out eventually, but none of it is very interesting. After Natalia (the mother of his secret daughter) is assassinated,

TIME TO CUT BACK YOUR AMARYLLIS http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/outdoors/11664-time-to-cut-back-your-amaryllis.html One of the easiest-to-grow, blooming bulb plants is the South American Amaryllis. This bulb thrives on normal household temperatures of around 70 degrees and will bloom in only 6 to 8 weeks after it is planted. The botanical named Hippeastrum, or Amaryllis comes in a wide variety of colors such as red, white, pink, salmon and orange, and even a couple of striped varieties of red and white or pink and white. If you are growing one from last year then read last paragraph first.

When shopping for an amaryllis bulb remember that the bigger the bulb, the larger the flower. It is worth the extra dollars to get the best bulbs you can find in all cases of flowering bulbs. Amaryllis bulbs can be planted anytime between October through April so if you buy several bulbs, plant them weeks apart to ensure blooming throughout the whole winter and spring seasons.

Clint
One of my favorite movie stars is Clint Eastwood. He has always been his own man who thinks for himself. He has never been like the other "me too sycophant stars" who want so badly to be a part of the Hollywood crowd and fit in, that they are afraid to follow their own path.

Clint is now 84, and can you believe that since he has turned 70, he has directed 12 movies?
When asked how he does it at his age, he said, "I just never let the old man in."

STRESS AND YOUR HEALTH http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/heath/11620-stress-and-your-health.html Everyone has to deal with stress. It's that feeling you get when faced with a challenge. Stress may occur when you feel like you don't have all the tools you need to manage the demands in your life. In small doses, stress can be good for you because it makes you more alert and gives you a burst of energy. But feeling stressed for a long time can take a toll on your mental and physical health.

Even though it may seem hard to find ways to de-stress with all the things you have to do, it's important to find those ways. Your health depends on it.

The body responds to stress by releasing stress hormones. These hormones make blood pressure, heart rate and blood sugar levels to go up. Long-term stress can help cause a variety of health problems including obesity, heart disease, depression and anxiety and high blood pressure just

INDIANA ENCOURAGES FINANCIAL LITERACY - Straight From The Senate http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11626-indiana-encourages-financial-literacy-straight-from-the-senate.html Indiana has worked to establish a strong reputation for responsible money management. By maintaining an honestly balanced state budget and keeping taxes low, living in Indiana has become synonymous with taking home more of your paycheck.

Just as it is important for Indiana to make wise investments and set aside funds for unexpected financial challenges, we want Hoosiers to have access to resources that help them excel at managing their personal finances. The fiscal strength of Indiana as a whole starts with the financial literacy of individual Hoosiers.

Responsible money management can help you avoid debt, save for retirement and make sensible investments. What's more, having a thorough understanding of your finances can help you avoid falling victim to scams and frauds, which are all too common in today's world.

“GOOD” GROWING CONDITIONS - Voice Of The Township http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11628-good-growing-conditions-voice-of-the-township.html Think about plants. They all have certain requirements for optimal growing conditions. For good plant growth, you need good growing conditions such as sufficient water, oxygen and minerals; proper temperature; adequate light; control of pests. Inappropriate conditions will result in poor development and reduced production. Some plants require large amounts of sunlight, and some don't. Some plants require large amounts of water to thrive, and some such as cacti can do well in drought conditions. You may be familiar with Maslow's hierarchy of needs, which focuses on the stages of growth in humans. The most fundamental levels of needs are described as physiological and safety needs. They should be met first. Air, water and food are requirements for human survival. Clothing and shelter provide protection from the elements. Our approach is to meet these needs first for our clients. We then focus on their economic safety, helping the client to

WORK TO BECOME A BETTER INVESTOR http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/opinion/11629-work-to-become-a-better-investor.html On September 1, we observe Labor Day — a celebration of the American worker. Of course, you work hard at your own job, but, when you think of it, every worthwhile endeavor in life requires significant effort — and that's certainly the case with investing. The harder you work at it, the more likely you are to make progress toward your goals.
So as you think about investing, consider the following areas in which you will need to apply yourself:

•Work to identify your goals. It's important that you know just why you're investing. Do you want to send your children (or grandchildren) to college? Do you want to retire early? What sort of retirement lifestyle do you envision? What kind of legacy do you want to leave? Identifying your financial goals is the necessary first step toward achieving them.

•Work to know your own risk tolerance. It's essential that you know

THE PREACHER http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/leisure/11630-the-preacher.html I grew up with a lot of religious rules. To violate these rules was to subject oneself to the judgment of God. If you had a fundamentalist upbringing, you may be familiar with some of these restrictions. No drinking, no smoking, no dancing, no playing cards or going to the movies, no mixed-bathing (a prospect that intrigued my teenage mind), no Sabbath-breaking (though we did not actually gather on the Sabbath), and absolutely no questioning of religious authority.

Religious authority was bound up in "The Preacher." The big Baptist downtown had a pastor. The Methodists had a seminary trained Reverend. The Presbyterians had a collection of elders. The one fledgling Catholic parish on the edge of town had a priest. I didn't meet a Jew until high school, so I didn't even know what a rabbi was, but it would not have mattered anyway.

Christine Ha, 3rd season winner of Fox MasterChef will appear at IPFW's Auer Hall as a special guest during a fundraiser hosted by the League for the Blind & Disabled, and our many loyal sponsors.

The event, "Cooking Blind with Fox MasterChef Christine Ha" (who is completely blind) will start at noon and will feature four "home cooks" who were pre-qualified to cook "live" on stage during a preliminary cook-off competition last July co-hosted by Ivy Tech. The home cooks will be competing for a $1,000 cash prize. The event will also feature Ms. Ha giving a cooking demonstration and fielding questions from the audience.

Pot
According to a preliminary study of casual marijuana users, there were differences in the two brain areas associated with emotions and motivation, from non-users. Of course the differences were more pronounced in heavier users.  But why am I telling you this? I'm sure you already knew that anyone who uses marijuana is going to pot.

Only in America
Only in America...could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country's Constitution, be thought of as "extremists."

A Health Care Plan That Would Work
I definitely believe that our Health Care System needs to be overhauled. There are just too many people who cannot afford health insurance. In addition, even for the insured, there is a possibility that a major illness, or disease, could force millions of hard working American families into bankruptcy.

HOT SUMMER DAYS, COOL NIGHTS - News From The Hills http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/leisure/11640-hot-summer-days-cool-nights-news-from-the-hills.html We are now crossing the bridge from summer to autumn. On one side is the hot summer sun, gardens at their peak, rose of Sharon bushes in full bloom and cool swimming pools. On the other side are cooler nights, turning leaves, katydids hollering and dwindling gardens.

The view from the bridge is stunning. The late summer flowers are in full bloom—bright orange day lilies, pure blue chickory blossoms, bright yellow wild sunflowers, black-eyed Susans and jewel-like touch-me-nots. On the other side the purple ironweed, Joe-Pye weed, sunny goldenrod and the many varieties of lovely wild asters are awaiting us.

We are leaving behind summer barbecues, school vacation, pool parties and family picnics. We are heading for class reunions, football season, bonfires and institutions of learning. It's good-bye to cold watermelon slices and icy slushies and hello to hot cocoa with marshmallows and fudge brownies. It is the changing of the seasons.

IN “THE GIVER,” ATTEMPTS ARE MADE TO CHANGE A COMMUNITY - At The Movies With Kasey http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/opinion/11642-in-the-giver-attempts-are-made-to-change-a-community-at-the-movies-with-kasey.html Anytime a book is adapted for film, there's the chorus of readers declaring that the book is always better than the movie. While I think that tends to be true, I am also far from a purist when it comes to adaptation. I'm okay with changes being made if the film stays true to the spirit of the book. In the case of The Giver, however, the changes made from Lois Lowry's novel are so egregious they come off as the cynical marketing ploy that they probably are.

The Giver takes place in a dull utopian future in which the elders of "the community" have abolished all differences in order to create peace. To get rid of racism and other types of judgment, there are no colors or fashion choices. To get rid of famine, there are not seasons or hills. There are also no biological families, no emotions, or love.

HARDY MUMS http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/outdoors/11643-hardy-mums.html While researching for "facts" on the topic of Hardy Mums, I was caught by surprise to see that every article recommends planting these perennials in the spring. What's so odd about this is that Hardy Mums are usually only available during the late summer and early fall. But then I figured out what they were talking about...spring is the time when you are supposed to divide your mums that wintered over from last year. It is also the time when we, in the business receive and plant the cuttings to grow and have ready by late summer and early fall. The most important fact is that the Hardy Mums need to be planted in your yard at least six weeks before the first, hard killing frost which means you need to get the job done soon for best results.

Hardy Mums, also called Garden Mums, are the perennial mums that will

TRAIL NOW ACCESSIBLE WITH POWER WHEELCHAIR http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/outdoors/11586-trail-now-accessible-with-power-wheelchair.html A specialized wheelchair will make a hiking trail at Chain O'Lakes State Park more accessible, thanks to the organizers of the Indiana Trail 100 race.

The Indiana Trail 100 is a 100-mile trail race held each April at the park. All net proceeds benefit the park, and race organizers recently donated to Chain O'Lakes an all-terrain power wheelchair to be used on Trail 3.

Trail 3 features rolling woods, a creek with an accessible bridge and a beaver dam.

The wheelchair is joystick-operated and equipped with a seat belt, and arm and leg rests. The chair easily rolls across sand and up challenging grades.
Other park trails are being enhanced to enable the safe use of the chair in the future.

"While we recognize that we'll never be able to make all trails accessible to people with mobility disabilities, we are working hard to remove as many barriers as possible," said property manager Sam

THE STRESS OF LIFE - A Healthy Day http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/heath/11587-the-stress-of-life-a-healthy-day.html "The Stress of Life" is a perennial bestseller by Hans Selye, written in 1956. Selye almost single-handedly introduced the notion of stress into the worldwide consciousness. By doing so, Selye changed the way we think about ourselves, our values, and how we conduct our lives.

As Selye observed, stress is a double-edged sword.Many types of stress are good for people, both physiologically and personally. For example, Wolff's law states that bone will remodel (build more bone) along lines of mechanical stress. In other words, bone becomes stronger when it is subjected to physical loads. The physiological stress of weight-bearing exercise such as walking, running, and strength training helps prevent osteoporosis by making bone denser and more resilient. From a psychological perspective, the great German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche, famously stated in "Twilight of the Idols" (1888), "What does not destroy me, makes me stronger." Apparently, Nietzsche (writing in the 19th century) was

HAVING “THE TALK” http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/heath/11588-having-the-talk.html Many of us are in the "Sandwich Generation", so I had to chuckle to myself as I typed this title.

I had a client who was driving to a doctor's appointment in New Haven, and ended up at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton Ohio! TRUE STORY! I shudder to think about what could have happened to her! I had been trying to convince her adult daughter to take away her car keys, due to dementia, for months, but she didn't want to "defy her mother". Thankfully, the wonderful people at Wright Patterson called her daughter, fed

WINDY WILLSON - Home Country http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/leisure/11589-windy-willson-home-country.html We walked quietly out and looked toward the west. It seems as though everyone did.

But no one really wanted to say it. No one wanted to jinx it. Oh, we're grown up, educated more or less, and smart enough to come in out of the oops. Nearly slipped up there. But there is that nagging little fear we all carry when we want something so badly we're afraid to talk about it. It might not happen.

I looked across the street and there was ol' Windy Wilson, staring west and snapping his suspenders in anticipation. Windy was here before the invention of dirt and knows a few things. The closest our talk came was simply Windy smiling at me and nodding yes.

GARDEN-TAINMENT CREATES LASTING MEMORIES FOR GUESTS http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/outdoors/11591-garden-tainment-creates-lasting-memories-for-guests.html Summer is filled with parties, gatherings, picnics and more. We all want to make these occasions special and memorable for our guests.

Many gardeners tend to schedule events around peak bloom or harvest in order to share the beauty and flavor from their garden.

Unfortunately nature does not always cooperate. It seems we are saying, "you should have been here last week" or "come back next week when the flowers will be at their peak".

No need to worry. It may be considered cheating by the purist, but isn't it all about creating a great space and event for our guests? Consider adding some fun flower accents. Metal flower sculptures like daisy bouquet stakes, hollyhock stem stakes or aluminum fiddleheads insure color throughout the season.

Or make it fun with faucet handle flowers (gardeners.com), which are sure to spark some conversation amongst your guests.

MOSQUITOES CAPABLE OF CARRYING DISEASE FOUND RIGHT HERE AT HOME http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/heath/11592-mosquitoes-capable-of-carrying-disease-found-right-here-at-home.html Just because the chikungunya virus is not yet prevalent in the United States doesn't mean residents should worry less about mosquitoes.

Mosquitoes in Indiana can carry a variety of diseases, such as West Nile virus, St. Louis and Lacrosse encephalitis. People who are bitten and become infected with these diseases can experience symptoms such as headache, fever, dizziness, fatigue and rash.

While most people will recover fairly quickly, others may be susceptible to a more serious course of illness. People over age 50 and those with compromised immune systems are at greatest risk for severe illness, coma and even death from mosquito-borne disease.

Starting in July, the Fort Wayne-Allen County Department of Health will begin trapping and testing mosquitoes at locations throughout the county as part of its mosquito control program. The department no longer sprays for mosquitoes when West Nile virus is detected. The focus is now on primary prevention measures, such

ENJOY AUGUST IN INDIANA - Straight From The Senate http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11596-enjoy-august-in-indiana-straight-from-the-senate.html Before summer comes to a close, I encourage you and your family to take time and enjoy all that Indiana has to offer. Our state is blessed with historic and vibrant small towns, beautiful forests, scenic waterways, lake-front beaches and more.

Indiana was recently named the best state in the nation for attracting tourists based on a Washington Post study. The Hoosier State's tourism office gets a better return on investment than any other state, surpassing even Hawaii, Alaska and Maine.

Last year, Visit Indiana spent $2.3 million marketing the state, and we took in more than $8.3 billion in tourism revenue. That means every tax dollar spent on marketing and promotion generated $3,635 in economic activity.

Tourism is vital to the health of our state, and we're doing a terrific job of showing our neighbors what makes Indiana, including our Fort Wayne community, great.

ROUNDABOUTS TO IMPROVE AIR QUALITY - Message From The Mayor http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11597-roundabouts-to-improve-air-quality-message-from-the-mayor.html Fort Wayne continues to see positive activities as we work together to make a meaningful difference for residents, neighborhoods, and businesses.

We recently broke ground for the roundabout and two-way street conversion at Superior Street, Wells Street, Fairfield Avenue and Ewing Street.

Demonstrating a commitment to enhancing our transportation system positions us as a leader in economic development, job growth and job retention, and strong neighborhoods. The roundabout project is another example of the unprecedented momentum we're experiencing in Fort Wayne.

Besides serving as a gateway, the roundabout will improve air quality by allowing traffic to flow into the intersection, thus eliminating lengthy idling at a traffic signal.

Project details and completion dates:
*5-legged intersection of Fairfield/Ewing/Superior/Wells will become a roundabout. (2014 completion expected in late November)

*Conversion of Fairfield & Ewing from one-way to two-way traffic between Baker Street and Superior Street. (Ewing in August 2014, Fairfield in mid-October 2014)

GARDENING - Voice Of The Township http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11598-gardening-voice-of-the-township.html I'm always looking for enjoyable family events for our clients to take part in. Gardening can be an inexpensive hobby for a family to share in. They can spend time together, share thoughts and ideas, and reap the benefits of providing food for the family. The children can realize a sense of contributing to the family unit. The time spent together can be used to teach the young ones the value of being environmentally-conscious and the necessity of conserving our environment. Recently I had some potatoes sitting on the kitchen table, and they began to sprout. I didn't want to cook them, so I cut them into smaller pieces and then planted them in a flower pot that was outside in the yard. The pot was approximately 20 inches high and about 20 inches round.

But if you're like many of your fellow boomers, you may be experiencing more than a little trepidation over your financial prospects as a retiree. That's why it's so important for you to determine what steps to take to help improve your chances of enjoying a comfortable retirement.

Just how worried are baby boomers about their future? Consider these numbers: Seventy-two percent of non-retired boomers think they will probably be forced to delay retirement, and 50% have little confidence that they will ever be able to retire, according to a recent AARP survey. Other surveys show a similarly bleak outlook among the baby boom generation.

Fortunately, when it comes to building resources for retirement, you have options. Of course, if you're in one of the younger age cohorts

LOVE SAVES THE WORLD FROM DEATH http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/leisure/11600-love-saves-the-world-from-death.html I pulled from my bookshelf a few systematic theology books that I had not opened for a long time. I blew off the dust, cracked the stiff binding, and dove into the hundreds of pages filled with declarations about the attributes and characteristics of God.

There they all were: God's self-existence, knowability, immutability, infinity, immensity, unity, veracity, holiness, righteousness, omniscience, sovereignty, transcendence – and several other $10 words – with all my handwritten study notes in the margins. This corpus of work was intended to make the theology student feel confident – to demonstrate how right our doctrines are. But as I skimmed the pages I was made freshly aware of how distracted we have become.

For all of Christianity's theoretical words and defenses, the Apostle John was simple and winsome with his definition of God: "God is love," John said. If Christians daily practiced this definition instead of declaring and defending

THE CONSUMER - SCHINDLER SEZ http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/leisure/11602-the-consumer-schindler-sez.html What do carpenter ants build?

A Double
Barney Wertzberger,
In Two Brother's Bar
With a five cent beer,
And a ten cent cigar

"The next one's on me,"
Said the one brother,
"I'll buy one too,"
Said the T'other.

"I'll have an Old Granddad,
I'd like that a lot,
And give me them both.
With a double shot."'

(In case you teatotalers and young whippersnappers don't know it, way back then you could really buy a draft beer for a nickel. But Old Granddad was and still is, an expensive whiskey.)

The Consumer
In Decatur, Indiana, in the 1950s, Carl was a successful salesman and quite a character, who loved a good time. He was also overly fond of anything brewed, fermented, or distilled. Not being a fool, Carl hired Joe to chauffer him around on his nights on the town, as to avoid any problems with the local constabulary.

His prodigious consumption was legendary because he

LET A SLEEPING GROUCH LIE http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/leisure/11607-let-a-sleeping-grouch-lie.html Rod always fell asleep in class. It didn't matter if it was math, English, or science. Ten minutes into the class, and he was sound asleep. A person might think he had a sleep problem. He did, actually. It was called not going to bed before 2:00 in the morning. The teachers tried talking to him about it, and he always promised to do better, but he never did.

In math class he would lay his head down on his desk, and soon he was out. One day he fell asleep and rolled his face onto the wire rings of his notebook. When he woke up, he looked like mini train tracks had been laid across his face. But that wasn't near as funny as the day he laid his head down in the middle of his history book. The ink in the book must have been cheap, because in that

PASTOR SHALIMAR’S MEMORY QUILT - Around The Frame http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/leisure/11608-pastor-shalimar-s-memory-quilt-around-the-frame.html Larry Duhammel’s memory block. He was my 6th grade teacher at Hillcrest School (1968-69)Recently the pastor of Nine Mile Methodist Church was transferred to a new parish. The church ladies wanted to give her a special gift of farewell. Parishioner Marilyn Gibson shared the experience with me:

Pastor Shalimar Holderly served as pastor of the Nine Mile United Methodist Church, Fort Wayne for eight years. In 2014 she was transferred to another church. This expected move was announced in spring and the congregation knew they would miss her and the memorable programs she started. They wanted to do something special for her.

Three ladies got together to think up ideas for something to give to the Pastor as a remembrance.... A wrap-around quilt! Audrey provided the preprinted fabric for the patches and the fabric markers and secretly passed them out during Sunday School when Pastor Shalimar was
