Extra News - The Waynedale Newspaper http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/ Wed, 20 Aug 2014 16:22:01 GMT FeedCreator 1.8.0-dev (info@mypapit.net) 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. This could have a couple of different meanings for all of us, but what I'm referring to today is having the difficult discussion with our elderly parents about things such as end of life planning, giving up their car keys, moving to assisted living, appointing a power of attorney and other important decisions.

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. Neighbors were out and the dogs were racing around trying to set new yard-to-yard speed records. Yes, it was getting dark there in the west.

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.

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. There was already a plant growing in the middle of the pot, and the plant

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

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.

This is the busiest time of the year for us, but when the canning season is over and the youngsters are back in school is welcome relief. No wonder that autumn is our favorite season!

I've heard mothers say that they hated to see their children go back to school, but it would be hypocritical for me to say that. Of course my children are grown up and flown the nest, but we once had six in school at one time. We endured two rush hours—getting them all off to school, and bath time and putting them to bed.

GET ON UP - At The Movies With Kasey http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/opinion/11610-get-on-up-at-the-movies-with-kasey.html Get On Up tells the life story of James Brown (Chadwick Boseman) from his childhood of deep poverty and neglect to his legendary achievements in music and popular culture. The film gives little exposition, opting for a near-collage of his life events, rather than a chronological account of what happened. In this way, the film's approach to biography seems more like an impressionist painting than a realist portrait. The movie aims to capture the spirit of Brown and his life, but may leave those set on the facts looking for more. More than anything, I think Get On Up portrays a sort of cult of personality around James Brown and how James Brown himself was the chief worshiper.

I think biopics can get really slow in the middle, as not all parts of life are very interesting. In contrast, Get On Up has an almost manic pace to it, moving quickly

ELIMINATING WEEDS http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/outdoors/11611-eliminating-weeds.html Most of the questions that are coming my way are about weeds growing in the yard and how to get rid of them. Pulling and digging is maybe alright for a small area but getting down to the root, literally is another matter.

Most broadleaf weeds multiply in the root system making them very difficult to simply dig up. Any part of the root remaining will just grow into another weed. Absolutely the easiest and most effective way to get rid of unwanted weeds is by using liquid or granular weed killers.

Don't want to use chemicals, no problem...just keep digging over and over. Who knows, you might get lucky.

Now if you really want to get rid of these pesky weeds, let's talk about timing and just exactly how the weeds function. I was once under the impression that a thirsty weed would suck up the solution better and therefore die quicker...wrong!

ORTHODONTIC BRACES - Ask The Expert http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/heath/11561-orthodontic-braces-ask-the-expert.html WILL MY CHILD HAVE TO HAVE BRACES TWICE?
One of the good things about the advances in orthodontics is that now we can use orthopedics to address certain growth problems with the bones and jaws early on in a child's life.

When necessary, early treatment addresses bite and jaw issues before the adult teeth come in. In these cases, the first phase of orthopedic treatment usually ends before the adult teeth erupt. When that happens, it is usually necessary for the child to have a second phase of treatment. This second phase aligns the adult teeth after they erupt.

The second phase of treatment is not the norm but it can make tremendous positive changes for a child who has major issues and sees an orthodontist at an early age.

Many times, early treatment can help avoid the removal of permanent teeth later in life and we are all about avoiding that!

HOOSIERS ENCOURAGED TO PROTECT AGAINST TICKS http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/heath/11563-hoosiers-encouraged-to-protect-against-ticks.html As Hoosiers continue to take advantage of the warm weather by spending more time outdoors, State Health officials urge Hoosiers to be aware and protect themselves from ticks.

Ticks are small, insect-like creatures that are often found in naturally vegetated areas or woodlands throughout Indiana. Ticks can transmit illnesses, such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Last year, Indiana confirmed 101 cases of Lyme disease, two cases of Rocky Mountain spotted fever and 22 cases of Ehrlichiosis.

"When the weather stays warm, as it is in the summer, ticks are more active," said State Health Commissioner William VanNess, M.D. "It's important to know that ticks are carriers of a number of diseases and that all ticks should be considered infectious and capable of transmitting diseases."

When entering a grassy or wooded area where ticks are often present, the best way to prevent tick-transmitted diseases is to wear a long-sleeved shirt and

INDIANA REMAINS FISCAL ENVY OF NATION - Straight From The Senate http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11564-indiana-remains-fiscal-envy-of-nation-straight-from-the-senate.html Indiana recently closed out another fiscal year of balanced budgets and significant reserves. As the national deficit continues to climb and other states operate in the red year after year, this is a welcome reminder of why it's great to be a Hoosier.

In Indiana, we maintain a commitment to fiscal responsibility by keeping taxes low and government efficient – concepts which seem to evade many states as well as Washington, D.C. We believe government should balance its checkbook just as millions of Hoosier workers and families do.

While the federal debt balloons toward $18 trillion, Indiana has decreased its debt by 50 percent in recent years. In addition to paying off our debts, we've been able to trim the fat on government bureaucracy and target taxpayer dollars to areas where they are needed most.

Our financial responsibility enables us to invest wisely in public services that support economic mobility – like education

THREE RIVERS FESTIVAL PARADE - Voice Of The Township http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11565-three-rivers-festival-parade-voice-of-the-township.html I love a parade! When I attend the Three Rivers Festival, and especially the parade, I feel like I'm celebrating with friends. It's as though the City is throwing a huge party, and everyone is welcome. Parades seem to be a celebration of color. All of the bright and striking reds, blues, and yellows seem to excite the onlookers. Each of us shares in the excitement, and it results in a fun filled day.

Family members strategically plan before attending the parade, discussing where they will park, where they will sit, and where they will meet if someone gets separated by the commotion. They come early and set up their seats for a great view, and then patiently await the parade. Viewers line the street to watch entries of marching bands, floats, motorized vehicles, animals, and large balloons.

It's always special to get together with a group of family and friends. I

YOUR LEGACY IS IN YOUR HANDS http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/opinion/11566-your-legacy-is-in-your-hands.html Unless you keep close track of obscure holidays and observances, you probably didn't know that August is "What Will Be Your Legacy? Month." Still, you might want to use this particular month as a useful reminder to take action on what could be one of your most important financial goals: leaving a meaningful legacy.

A legacy isn't simply a document or a bunch of numbers — it's what you will be remembered for, and what you have left behind that will be remembered. It's essentially your chance to contribute positively to the future, whether that means providing financial resources for the next generation, helping those charitable organizations whose work you support, or a combination of both.

To create your legacy, you'll need to do some planning. And you can start by asking yourself a couple of key questions:

What are your goals?

MIDSUMMER BLACKBERRIES - News From The Hills http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/leisure/11572-midsummer-blackberries-news-from-the-hills.html Midsummer simmers along, with hot, humid days and sticky nights. The common oxeye daisies have given way to brightly colored black-eyed Susan's that stare boldly from large patches along the wayside. Spotted Joe-pye weed is beginning to appear in fields and meadows, showing its pale purple, fuzzy flower heads. All signs point to coming autumn.

This is a good blackberry summer. The berries hang heavy and ripe on their briers, waiting for eager hands to gather them. I can hear Daddy singing now, "Oh, huckleberry pie and blackberry pudding, and I'd give it all away for to hug Sally Gooden!" The blackberry pudding probably referred to "quick jam," as some called it and consisted of thickened and sweetened blackberries, eaten with hot biscuits and butter.

Grandpa O'Dell used to strap two zinc water buckets on his belt (he also wore galluses) and head for Pilot Knob to pick blackberries all day long.

The Death of an Irishman
(A friend told me this story and swore it was the truth. I enhanced it a little and changed the names to protect the not so innocent).
Two Irish friends were sitting in a pub having a jar or two and chatting about a chum who had just died that morning.
"Are you going to the funeral?" Liam asked Dudley.
"No."
"Why not?"
"Cause he ain't coming to mine."

SUMMER WEATHER PERFECT FOR MINOR PAINTING PROJECTS http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/outdoors/11575-summer-weather-perfect-for-minor-painting-projects.html Just because the hot weather's here doesn't mean you can't do something cool with your home exterior. Some small-scale painting projects can easily be completed early in the morning or late in the afternoon, times of the day when you won't wilt in the sun.

Spending just a couple of hours repainting the front door is a prime example, says Debbie Zimmer, paint and color expert for the Paint Quality Institute. "By switching to a completely different door color, you may be able to give your home an entirely new appearance," she says. "It's a great way to get a big return for a small amount of sweat equity."

Another smart move is to paint your shutters. .in stages. Take on just two at a time before taking off for the patio or pool; then repeat the process for as many days as necessary. You'll get more efficient as you go,

ANTHONY WAYNE ROTARY 5K TO STOMP OUT POLIO http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/outdoors/11577-anthony-wayne-rotary-5k-to-stomp-out-polio.html Every year one hundred plus walkers and runners descend on Shoaff Park the second Saturday in August to help Rotarians put an end to polio. This year is no exception. The sixth annual Walk Run to Eradicate Polio will take place on August 16th at 8:30am and all proceeds will go to Rotary International's program to end polio worldwide.

What is special about this campaign is its backing by the Gates Foundation which matches each donation 2-1. This is Anthony Wayne Rotary's largest fundraiser for the polio effort and every dollar goes to this cause.

Rotary International started their first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979 and, although it is rarely a thought in the U.S., it continues to be an issue for everyone because of a few countries where it is still prevalent as vaccinations are problematic. In the United States, between 1955 and 1957, the

THE PURGE: ANARCHY - At The Movies With Kasey http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/opinion/11578-the-purge-anarchy-at-the-movies-with-kasey.html Stuck in a week with nothing good to see, I took a chance on a movie I would never go to if it weren't for this column: The Purge: Anarchy. While the violence was less gratuitous than I anticipated, there was more social commentary than I expected. Unfortunately, however, the world and the critique of The Purge: Anarchy is pretty shopworn, resulting in a mediocre at-best movie.

The Purge: Anarchy takes place in the near future, after the New Founding Fathers of America have taken control of the country, fighting crime, unemployment, and other societal issues with an annual purge: 12 hours in which all crime is legal. While The Purge allegedly serves as a way for people to "release the beast," unleashing repressed aggression so they can be upstanding citizens the rest of the time, really the outburst of violence helps control the population, benefiting the wealthy and privileged by

PRUNING & DEAD-HEADING http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/outdoors/11579-pruning-dead-heading.html June/July are the times to get your pruning and dead-heading done as pruning in the fall is generally looked down upon.

Most evergreens such as junipers, euonymus and aborvitae are cutback during the month of June but now is still better than later. Dead-heading is simply the act of cleaning up all of the dead debris such as the spent flowers on annuals and the long stalks and flowers of your spring and summer perennials. The faster these dead flowers are removed from your annuals, the quicker you will get more flowers. With your perennials, the removal of these over-the-hill blossoms and stems will help to create stronger and healthier plants for next year.

The middle of the growing season is a great time to sprinkle slow release, granule fertilizers around all of your outdoor garden plants. Look for the words "Garden Fertilizer" on the label. Bone meal is a safe, organic

FREQUENT FLYING - A HEALTHY DAY http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/heath/11532-frequent-flying-a-healthy-day.html Most of us, at one time or another, have traveled for business. Some of us do this fairly often, and when we travel for business, we're usually getting where we're going by plane. Air travel used to be quick and easy. But lately, within the last ten years, maybe not so much. By now, we're used to long lines at security checkpoints, extended downtime waiting for our scheduled flights to depart, and an almost total absence of healthy food choices on our travel days. That said, there are several steps a smart traveler can take to help ensure that necessary travel does not take a toll on our health and overall well-being.

The key to healthy travel is preparation. We want to avoid two main problems. First, we want to prevent the strains and sprains that may befall us when we battle unwieldy luggage in the cramped quarters of airplane cabins.

A PERFECT GIFT FOR THE ELDERLY http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/heath/11533-a-perfect-gift-for-the-elderly.html If getting up and down from a chair or sofa is not as simple or safe as it used to be for a loved one, a power lift and recline chair may be a wonderful gift. Not only are lift chairs comfortable and practical, they provide safety for anyone finding it hard to get up without rocking forward to stand.

Selecting the right lift chair is important.

First, you must decide whether a single motor or dual motor chair has the needed features. A single motor chair offers both lift and recline features while a dual motor chair allows the footrest to move independent of the chair's back. This "infinite position" feature lets you elevate your legs without fully reclining the back and allows the user to recline to both the zero-gravity position and the Trendelburg position (feet above the head).

Whichever model you select the chair must be properly sized. This is

EMPLOYERS, STATE TEAM UP TO IMPROVE JOB TRAINING - STRAIGHT FROM THE SENATE http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11535-employers-state-team-up-to-improve-job-training-straight-from-the-senate.html A recent survey by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce found that nearly 40 percent of Indiana employers left jobs open because they were unable to find qualified candidates.
As our state economy advances, we must have a workforce to match. Too many Hoosiers remain unemployed or underemployed because they are not equipped with the skills necessary to fill well-paying, in-demand jobs.

The effort to improve job training begins in our elementary schools and extends to programs aimed at re-training adults. In recent years, Indiana has maintained a strong focus on closing the skills gap and pioneering an inventive and effective workforce development plan.

In 2013, the Indiana General Assembly passed a law creating regional works councils that were tasked with evaluating vocational programs at Indiana high schools and finding innovative best practices. An additional group was formed to connect the state's education and workforce development systems with industry professionals to make sure

Nearly 2,600 people took our survey about what they'd like to see along the downtown riverfront. People are clearly excited about the momentum they see in our community and are looking forward to the continued growth and vibrancy that enhancing our riverfront will encourage.

The Uses and Activities Survey was primarily filled out online with some hard copies completed at Riverpalooza and several locations throughout Fort Wayne. Respondents expressed support for a wide variety of uses along the riverfront, including sitting places, mixed use development, winter activities, and entrepreneur space. They indicated overwhelming support for recreational opportunities both on and alongside the river, as well as for natural habitat space.

Recreation and natural habitat stood out as having the most interest from respondents. However, those taking the survey were also interested in a variety

We learned so much about helping others under the leadership of great people like Ed Elkins and William G. Williams. We worked on relocation projects such as the East Central Towers, the West Central Project, the downtown Civic Center and the downtown Senior Citizens' Center. During the relocation process, we worked with people who were required to leave their homes and find other housing. Most had no idea of how they would accomplish this; and didn't know what the future held for them. It seemed like each person being relocated was a friend who needed our help. Many didn't want to leave the home they had resided in
