the Walk to Remember that took place 2,000 miles
away from their island home in Bonavista Bay off
the eastern Newfoundland coast. Not only did the
balloon travel this distance in about 24 hours, it
landed only about 30 miles from another bay with
an unlikely name: Trinity. The couple sent photos
of their home and the found balloon to Franciscan
St. Francis Health and also posted them on their
personal Facebook account. “We are very intrigued
by your story and what you do for all the families
that have shared this type of loss,” Patti wrote in
an email to the hospital’s website. “I would like to
release a balloon in honor of your organization,
every year on the date of your walk, just to recognize
these families.” When Heather Stofer, Trinity’s
mother, heard that their family’s balloon had been
found, her emotions ranged from disbelief to awe.
“I just got chills,” she said. “Usually, we tie all of our
balloons together, but for some reason this year,
my mom released hers separately.” This was the fifth
year Stofer and her family, including Trinity’s greatgrandparents and surviving twin sister, attended
the Walk to Remember. “It’s a time for us to honor
her and remember her, so that she’s not ‘out of sight,
out of mind,’” she said.

More than 1,000 adults and children, many holding
balloons, gathered in Sarah T. Bolton Park in Beech
Grove on Oct. 11. They took this time to remember
children, grandchildren and siblings lost to stillbirth,
miscarriage and newborn loss. Between songs and
prayers, they heard the names of their lost infants
read. For 29 years, the annual Walk to Remember has
been a part of many central Indiana families’ way of
honoring these special sons and daughters during
Infant Loss Awareness Month. Balloons have been
a symbol of loss and hope as families release them
into the air at the end of the ceremony, many of them
carrying the babies’ names and personal messages
written on them. With hundreds of other families on
that chilly fall morning, LaDonna Stofer released a
balloon with the name of Trinity, a granddaughter
lost five years ago, written in black marker. The pink
balloon rose above the trees and soon disappeared
from sight. The next day, Rob and Patti Oldford
found a pink balloon among the rocks and tall grass
in front of their house. The balloon had the Walk to
Remember logo and Trinity’s name on it, along with
a message of love from her grandmother. Touched
and curious about the story behind this balloon, the
Oldfords went online and found information about

White River Township Fire Department rated
Top 7 percent nationally
The White River Township Fire Department (WRTFD) rated in the top three percent in the state of Indiana
and in the top seven percent nationally for fire protection according to a recent field study by the Insurance
Services Office (ISO). ISO independently evaluated and classified more than 49,000 communities in the
United States on the effectiveness of their fire protection services. WRTFD received a rating of 3/3x for
its fire-suppression program which puts the department in the top 7 percent of the country. WRTFD
was evaluated on structure fire suppression capabilities, response time, available equipment, training,
communications and more. WRTFD has maintained this level of rating every year since 2007. “Our ultimate
goal is to serve our community with excellence,” stated WRTFD Fire Chief Jeremy Pell. “This ISO rating is one
of several measures that validates our service to the community. It also provides taxpayers with return on
their investment by considering this high level of fire protection into property insurance rates.” WRTFD
protects an area of approximately 26 square miles in the Center Grove area. This includes the State Road 135
corridor, State Road 37, and includes approximately 28,000 residents.

The Southport City Council approved its
2015 budget at its meeting on Oct. 20. A 5
percent pay increase for all elected officials,
health insurance added for the police chief,
additional capital improvements for the parks
department are among the items in the budget. Clerk/treasurer Diana Bossingham said
everyone involved in the process has continued to build upon previous years’ budgets to
strengthen the city’s financial situation.
“I think it’s the best budget we’ve put together so far,” Bossingham said. “Part of it is
we’ve had more people work on it than we did
the year before. It’s been fun to watch everyone get excited about the budget process and
not dread it.”

Bossingham started hosting a budget class
in 2012 after she took the position as clerk/
treasurer, encouraging officials from each department to get involved in the planning.
“I thought this is a process where everyone
needs to be able to create that budget because
I am not the only one who spends that money,”
Bossingham said. “Knowledge is power. If you
can inform your various boards and folks as
far as how the budget works, then you just get
better buy-in. They are going to respect that
budget.”
Bossingham said that she’s happy about the
restricted donation funds that the council approved for the parks and police departments
this year, so that now when those departments
receive donations, they can simply spend it on
what that money was designated towards. She
said this will assist them in purchasing necessary items to fulfill their job, without having

before action can be taken.
The police department purchased two new
patrol vehicles in 2014, and Bossingham said
they were able to sustain that leasing program
for the coming year. She said they have also
planned saving funds for capital improvements which the board of public works may
need in the future.
“We’re getting things accomplished. I’m
constantly looking into the future,” Bossingham said. “What do we need five years down
the road, 10 years down the road? I may not be
clerk/treasurer five years down the road, but I
want them to come into this office with having
the ground works set for future projects now.
Then everybody wins.”

■ What happened? Ordinance No. 14-51 to “amend the text of Chapter 6,
Article 10, to add section 6-352 Panhandling” passed its second reading,
7-0.
■ What it means: The ordinance specifically defines panhandling and
prohibits panhandling after or before sunrise, at a bus stop, in any public
transportation vehicle or public transportation facility, within 20 feet in any
direction from an ATM or entrance to a bank, on private property without
permission of the property owner, on City-owned property, in medians or
right of ways where such behavior causes a safety issue or threat to public
health, or in locations that impede public right of way. Depending on the
severity of the violation, fines will range from $120 to $2,500.
■ What’s next: The ordinance is now in full effect. For full information
about the restrictions, visit greenwood.in.gov.
In brief…

Beech Grove man passes
away in residence fire
UIndy baseball to host
Halloween game for Owen
On Oct. 29, 7:47 a.m., the Beech Grove Fire Department
along with units from the Indianapolis Fire Department
responded to a possible residence fire at 86 N. 6th Ave. The
first units arrived within two minutes of dispatch to find fire
venting from the front door and heavy smoke venting from
the rear. An interior fire attack was conducted bringing the
fire under control in less than ten minutes. During the initial
phase of the fire attack a group of firefighters assigned to
search and rescue located a victim. The victim was deemed
to be a fatality and not moved from the scene so that a
thorough investigation could commence. The name of the
victim is Ryan Thomas. Mr. Thomas was 40 years old. At this
time the cause of the fire and the cause of death are under
investigation.
The Greyhound baseball program will wrap up its
Fall Ball season with a Halloween game in honor of its
TeamIMPACT student-athlete Owen on Oct. 31. UIndy
will host a three inning Halloween game, featuring an
intersquad matchup of Greyhound baseball players in
Halloween costumes on Oct. 31, 3:30 p.m. at Greyhound
Park. The baseball team will be taking donations at the
gate, with all donations collected going to the Indiana
Children's Wish Fund in Owen's name. Owen joined the
Greyhounds last spring through TeamIMPACT, which
seeks to improve the quality of life for children facing
life-threatening and chronic illnesses through the power
of team. The Greyhounds open the spring season Feb.
13-15, 2015 with a trip to North Georgia.

Our 15 minutes are up
Three years ago the Greenwood Library
was all over the local news. Unfortunately, it
was not a result of winning any awards. We
had serious financial woes – serious enough
to launch our Save the Library campaign
when it looked as if our doors would close. We
cut our staff by 25 percent, reduced our hours,
froze spending, and focused on good stewardship and transparency. When a ship is sinking,
drastic measures are needed.
If you use our library, you likely know the
rest of the story – that in the last three years
we have become a much more stable organization. We have worked to communicate
our successes as well as our struggles, but the
struggles obviously make better headlines. In
spite of our success, there are still those whose
first association to the Greenwood Library is
“that library with financial problems.” It seems
our 15 minutes of fame really made an impression.
Of course the good news is that we survived. As far as we’re concerned, that’s the
best headline of all. And it’s tempting to let
the story end there. It would be easy to lose
our momentum and our motivation without a
crisis to light that fire – easier just to rest for a
while and go back to the way things were. But
the problem is that the crisis of 2012 was not a
one-time event, but a rollercoaster we needed
to exit. If we are only motivated by the presence of a crisis we will find ourselves back on
the rollercoaster before long.
Fortunately, we are motivated by our vision
for our community,
not by crises. As a
result we will continue to monitor our
financial health with
a critical eye. We are
not cured from our
financial woes but
in remission. It will
take constant vigilance to be prepared
for the future financial challenges that
will inevitably come.
As we approach 2015 we are preparing for
an amazing year, and we recognize that as the
library moves out of the ICU we have had
some incredible help. Our Friends of the Library organization and community supporters have been life-lines for us. Funding is a
moving target for all libraries, and the ones
who navigate it well have solid community
support behind them. Our community’s commitment to education and literacy are evident
in the support we’ve received.
We have known for some time that our
heating and cooling system was close to the
end of its life, and worried for three years that
such a large expense would derail our recovery. We are grateful that we will be able to
Cheryl Dobbs
address that need in 2015 due to a bond approved by the Greenwood City Council and
the Johnson County Council. In addition,
we have been approved for a Collaborative
Project with the Greenwood Redevelopment
Commission which will keep our infrastructure sound by helping us replace our parking
lot, sidewalks, and lift stations. The timing for
all of this is just what the doctor ordered. We
have done the hard work of improving our financial health, were
transparent in the
process, and now
community leaders
have joined us in
the fight to help us
turn that final corner.
You may also
hear about a campaign the Friends
of the Library have
launched to update
our teen room and
lobby area. These “Imagine the Future” improvements will ensure our ability to serve
the more than 200,000 people who stream
through our doors each year and the teens
who depend on us for homeschool and afterschool activities.
So if you hear about these exciting projects
going on at the Greenwood Library, we hope
that instead of saying “isn’t that the library
with financial problems?” you might instead
say, “Greenwood Library? That’s one amazing
place.”

HUMOR
Revel in the childlike
glee and splendor
We’re drawing ever nearer to the holiday
season again and amidst all the golden-brown,
falling-down leaves and the chilly autumn air,
there’s something afoot that makes the hairs
on the back our necks stand up. Seeing a stray
black cat any other time of year may be no big
deal but we’re almost certain we just saw one
that stared right back at us!
We’ve been luckier than our Fishers neighbors to the north – so far no creepy clowns
have terrorized our neighborhoods (and let’s
knock on wood to keep that from happening). But we have noticed an influx of cobwebs
and creepy crawlies in addition to the mystery
of the disappearing candy (it’s flying off the
shelves at stores, it’s not in our hiding spot in
the cupboard – even the cookie jar has been

ransacked by an apparently hungry phantom).
Still, be watchful for hooded imps up to their
Halloween mischief and shadowy figures lurking in the darkness! When ghastly ghouls of all
sizes come knocking on your door this Hallows’ Eve, great them with treats so they’ll be
on their way!
Whether you’re like us and more prone to
hearing extra bumps in the night – did the furnace always sound like that? – we hope you’re
enjoying the festivities this year. For the young
ones, may you have more treats than tricks,
and for the rest of us, may we revel in the holiday as we did as kids with childlike glee and
splendor.
The Southside Times would like to wish all
our readers a safe and Happy Halloween.

One Tweet doesn’t define Ted Bishop
Ted Bishop, as you may have read recently, was removed as president of the PGA because of posting via Twitter a comment to
golfer Ian Poulter, calling him a “Lil Girl,” because of comments Poulter made in a book
on captaincy selection for the Ryder Cup in
2008 and this year. On Facebook, Bishop then
stated “Really? Sounds like a little school girl
squealing during recess. C’MON MAN!” Increasingly, people – good ones – are held in
contempt because they have stated their opinion using social media. More times than not,
the decision to remove someone from a job
because of a social media posting defies logic.
The political correct police will say that because of Bishop’s job title he was justly fired.
Here is something every baby boomer should
take note of: ditch the social media. It’s not the
same world we grew up in where you could
say something and no one thought anything
about it. Our society has become a sensitive
lot and that sensitivity is leading our country
to ruin. Bishop had a month left in his twoyear term. We’re confident, given the individual he is, that he served honorably. Those of
us who know him, many of whom are women,
have seen what he has done philanthropically
through golf - Pay it Forward Johnson County
is a perfect example – and know that this incident doesn’t define this man.

a young man who
was a table with a

"Last year I dressed
up as a spiderweb
and my one-yearold daughter was the
spider in the Snugglie. My arms made
the webbing open up.
I made it. I bought a
six-foot spider and
that went on the outside of the Snugglie and so the six foot legs
wrapped around and opened up with us.
This year we are doing the Wizard of Oz.
I'm going as a scarecrow, dad is going as
the Tin Man, and the baby is going as the

Father Vince Lampert balances time
at Saints Francis and Clare Catholic
Church with acting in and educating
on his ministry in exorcism
COVER STORY
By Nicole Davis
Father Vince Lampert receives calls from
across the United States from people who believe they are up against the forces of evil. As
one of 50 exorcists in the U.S., Father Lampert
says half of his time is spent in the ministry
of exorcism, the other half serving at Saints
Francis and Clare Catholic Church in Greenwood. Exorcism is an area of which many people have a misunderstanding, Father Lampert
said. This time of year, with Halloween
approaching, he spends much of his
time educating at college campuses.
“I’d always believed in the reality
of evil but certainly not fixated on it,”
Father Lampert said. “Even as an exorcist, my goal is not to focus on evil,
but to help people that believe they are
troubled to see the face of God in their
lives... My former bishop told me why
he chose me (to be an exorcist). He
said I need someone with a level head,
someone who believes in the reality
of evil but not someone who believes
that everyone who comes to him is up
against the forces of evil. He also said
because you don’t want the job means
you should have it.”
Father Lampert was ordained as a
priest in 1991. He has served in Indianapolis, Brownsburg, Danville and at
Our Lady of Greenwood before being
assigned to Saints Francis and Clare in
2003. Father Lampert said he transitioned from a parish that consisted of a
small, older community to the Center
Grove community, where the parishioner’s average age is 35 and the community is growing.
“One of the things about being in the
Center Grove community that I think
is unique is that faith seems to be such
a central component of the people,”
Father Lampert said. “There are a lot of wonderful faith groups and vibrant church communities in the area. Faith is just relevant in
people’s lives. For 10 years I was chaplain of
the Center Grove football team. It might seem
odd to have priest as a chaplain of a public
school but everything worked out perfectly. I
think that’s an indication of the role faith plays
in the community.”
In his time at Saints Francis and Clare, the
church population grew from serving 600
households to 1,700. The church opened a
grade school nine years ago, increasing from
the first 34 students to now 553. A new food
pantry building opened more than a month
ago. The construction of an early childhood
center, serving infants, toddlers, preschoolers
and kindergarteners is planned for 2015.
“When many people look at our facilities
they say we’re blessed at Saints Francis and
Clare,” Father Lampert said. “That was one of
the driving forces of opening our food pantry. No matter how blessed we are, it’s important to share our blessings with other people.
Church communities need to be about growing in faith and helping those who are less fortunate.”
orcism, is finding the true cause of the symptoms. Father Lampert said there are different
degrees of demonic activity which could be
troubling a person: demonic possession which
is extremely rare; infestation or the presence
of evil in a location or object; vexation and
oppression, a kind of depression where the
person is filled with anxiety. Father Lampert
said his challenge is determining whether the
symptoms in a person are caused by a spiritual nature, or if it’s a medical or psychological
condition. He said he always relies on experts
in the physical and medical health sciences.
“Most people, by the time they’ve
contacted me, have already self-diagnosed themselves and believe they
are possessed,” Father Lampert said. “I
want to take a step back. The exorcist
is trained to be the skeptic. So every
other possible reason for what’s happening in the life of this person must
be looked at before the right of exorcism may be used.”
When he was first appointed an
exorcist, he was one of 12 in the U.S.
Since then, more priests have been appointed to the role. Father Lampert
said he takes approximately 12 calls a
week, mainly from within the U.S.
“People will often say, ‘Does that
mean there is a greater presence of
evil today?” Father Lampert said, “I
don’t think there is a greater presence of evil. Perhaps more people are
getting caught up in it. If you look at
western society in general, faith is becoming less relevant in a lot of people’s lives. When faith becomes less
relevant, people are more likely to get
more caught up in things that will lead
Photo by Nicole Davis them down the wrong path.”

istry of exorcism with time at flourishing parish, Father Lampert said
In 2005, two years after coming to Saints he remains mindful that this is his vocation,

Getting to know
Father Vince Lampert
• I like to go fishing.
• I like to study languages. I have a
degree in Spanish and speak some
Italian from my time in Rome. I grew up
in Indianapolis on the near west side
in the old Haughville neighborhood
with immigrants from Slovenia. The
language is similar to Russian so I
actually studied Russian for a year to
better understand their culture. I’m
just intrigued by the fact that you can
make a certain sound or noise and
that means something to someone.
People just appreciate it if you make an
attempt to understand a part of their
culture and identity.
• I like to travel, encountering other
people. I’ve traveled to Europe 14
times, that includes most of western
Europe. I’ve also had a chance to visit
the Mideast, parts of north Africa. I
have someone who has invited me
to go to Brazil next year to talk about
exorcism to a gathering of 20,000
people. That is a possibility. I have
visited all 50 states. I was able to go to
Hawaii earlier this year. I wanted to go
to the 50th state when I was still 50 and
I was able to visit four National Park
sites when I was there.
• Because I like to travel, I love to visit
the National Park system in the United
States. I have a National Park room in
my house that has mementos of all
the national parks in the United States.
There are currently around 400 units
of the National Park Service and I have
been to 245 of them. Growing up as a
kid, I have eight brother sister and we
used to spend a lot of time outdoors.
Every Sunday we would go to church
and then afterwards we would go
outside or go to a state park in Indiana.
Now I’ve just taken that to a national
level.

HALLOWEEN Dispatches
■ Shoppers spend $350 million on Halloween
According to data from the National Retail Federation
(NRF), consumers are now spending more money on
Halloween fare from decorations to candy and costumes –
even costumes for their pets. As more and more celebrate
Halloween, average spending has increased by nearly
63 percent since 2008. And this trend goes for candy,
decorations and costumes across the board. According
to the NRF, “An uptick in spending at Halloween could
provide retailers with reason for optimism as they head
toward the crucial holiday shopping season. A willingness
to spend more on Halloween could be a signal that
consumers won’t be pinching pennies at Christmas time.”
– Washington Post
■ Four Halloween fact treats
1. Trick-or-treating may come from a superstition that
ghosts used human disguises to knock on doors to ask
for food or money. If denied, the apparition would curse
or “trick” the person who refused. 2. Originally, Halloween
was inspired by the Irish Celtic festival Samhain to
celebrate the conclusion of the harvest season – the
tradition spread as Irish emigrated throughout the world.
3. It was once believed that black cats actually protected
the mysterious powers of witches. 4. Halloween goes by
many different names: All Hallows’ Eve, Lamswool SnapApple Night, Samhaim, Summer’s End and Witches Night,
to name a few. – IBTimes.com

MATTERS OF HEALTH
By Access Mobility
Sleep is an unspoken factor in many health
related issues. Back pain is one of the worst
ailments out there and can cause severe pain
as well as a vast range of problems ranging
from limited mobility to accidents. Unfortunately it is something that many of us have to
contend with and especially once we begin to
reach older age and following the wear and
tear that every day life subjects it to. Thus it
is important to do everything in our power to
make sure that we can keep our backs healthy
and well maintained and prevent them from
deteriorating.
Good sleep for good health
Adjustable beds can actually make you
healthier. The medical benefits are not just for
hospitals anymore. A flat bed causes your body
to shift into cramped positions and cause improper posture as you sleep. People with back
or joint problems are made worse by sleeping on a flat bed. Sleeping on your side causes
problems with breathing and circulation. Adjustable beds allow you to sleep on your back
and by inclining your upper body and lower
body into a more comfortable position. Many
of us find it enjoyable to rest in a recliner and
there are reasons why it becomes a place to
relax. Today people read in bed, work on
their laptops and watch TV in bed. On a flat
bed you must arrange many pillows to make
yourself comfortable. The pillows move out of
position and you end up with a back or neck
ache. More studies are showing that Adjustable beds have therapeutic effects on the body.
These premium sleep
systems are designed
for maximum comfort and individual
adjustability. We are

HEALTH Dispatches
■ Suffering from sleep ‘drunkenness’?
New research published in the journal Neurology, says one in every seven may suffer from sleep “drunkenness” disorder, or confusional arousal. According to
the National Institutes of Health, episodes can happen when a person is awaked during non-REM sleep. The study also found that 84 percent of those with
confusional arousal had another sleeping disorder, mental health disorder, or were taking psychotropic drugs (including antidepressants). Director of the sleep
lab at Emory University, Dr. David Alexander Schulman, said these “episodes” aren’t uncommon – and sleep deprivation may also be a leading cause.
– CNN Health
■ Hand sanitizer less effective in schools
Kids and schools are notorious for the presence and immoderate sharing of infectious microbes, so researchers in New Zealand studied whether or not alcoholbased hand sanitizers could reduce illness-related absences. They found that washing hands with warm soap and water was more effective than hand sanitizer.
Editorial in the journal concluded: “These findings suggest that, in high-income countries where clean water for hand washing is readily available, putting
resources into extra hand hygiene by providing hand sanitizer in classrooms may not be an effective way to break the child-to-child transmission of infectious
diseases.” – CNN Health

of their required 20 hours of community service for the 2014-15
school year, which is a new addition to the school’s graduation
requirement. While the students are out in the community, they
will be able to help improve the appearance of their community
by picking up trash, mulching Main Street, raking leaves and
more. Some students will also have the opportunity to visit local
nursing homes to help with setup for Halloween parties, as well
as visit with the residents. Students will start swarming the city
around 9 a.m. and will return back to the school around noon
for lunch and reflection of their experience. While the students
are in the city they will wear their bright green shirts, which were
donated by DEEM, an electrical mechanical company, with its
world headquarters located in Indianapolis.

Fifty zombies marched through Southport
on Oct. 25, kicking off the city’s Halloween
celebration. The city prepared for 400-450
guests for the zombie village and Halloween
Party, but received an estimated 1,500-1,800
people in attendance.
Many places on the Southside have seen an
increased interest in Halloween celebrations.
“We had beautiful weather and good advertisement,” said Southport Mayor Jesse Testruth. “We were swamped. The biggest excitement was the headless horseman. Everyone
talked about it. People loved the zombie village and the hayride; this was the first year
we have offered that. We appreciate all of our
zombie volunteers and all of our participants.
It made Southport really special.”
Since they ran out of food this year, there
will be a charge for food in 2015, but everything else will be free. Mayor Testruth said
with such a great turnout, he’s already looking to expand the festivities next year, and has
been in discussion with Greenwood Mayor
Mark Myers on how to do so. Expect for the
Halloween announcement to come in 2015.
Beech Grove schools held a Spooktacular
on Oct. 28 for Hornet Park and Central Elementary students and their siblings.
“It was a wonderful and enchanting evening,” wrote Melody Stevens, community relations director, in an email. “The attendance
was fantastic! We probably had over 200
parents and children attend. The halls were
crowded! Lots of stations were set up where
students received free candy, a free apple, certificates for free pizza, free breadsticks, and
a free book. In addition, families could get a
photo taken for $1 each, and a meal of a hot
dog, chips, and a drink for $2! It was a very
fun evening!”
Greenwood celebrated its Monster Mash
on Oct. 24.
“It was the biggest turnout we’ve ever had;
our estimate was we had 2,000 people in attendance,” said Nick Schwab, youth programming coordinator for Greenwood. “It was the
perfect combination of great weather, great
community partnership with the Greenwood
School Corporation and Greenwood Public
Library, as well as some great sponsors.”

Lady Rebels earn volleyball sectional
The Roncalli girls volleyball team defeated the Franklin Grizzly Cubs 25-20, 25-18 and 25-20 to win the Class
4A Sectional 13 Title. This sectional crown is the 25th in Roncalli’s volleyball history and places Roncalli
into a select group of 10 volleyball programs statewide that have won at least 25 sectional championships.
Roncalli’s last volleyball sectional title was in 2011, which was the school’s first season in Class 4A. On Oct.
23, the second-ranked Lady Rebels topped third-ranked Center Grove 25-21, 25-22, 26-24 in the semifinal
round. The Lady Rebels (32-3) advanced to the regional round on Oct. 27 where they played at Columbus
East (16-16).
Nativity Catholic School
welcomes new teachers
Nativity Catholic School students and faculty welcomed two new teachers for the
2014-15 school year, Courtney Swift and Jim Wood. Mrs. Swift graduated from ISU
and holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in
Reading. She previously taught fourth and fifth grades in Indiana and Florida. Her
professional career began at Nativity and she is excited to be a part of the Nativity
community again. Mr. Wood graduated in 1986 with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish.
Following graduation, he worked in various capacities within the insurance field
and felt called to share his faith as a Religious Education Catechist at his parish. In
2013, he felt strongly called to devote more time and energy to teaching and his
faith. He enrolled in Indiana Wesleyan University’s Transition to Teaching program
and graduated in 2013.
The Roncalli boys tennis team brought home the sectional
championship after winning a thrilling 3-2 match against
Franklin Central in the first round of sectional play and
winning 5-0 against Beech Grove in the final
round of the competition.
Congratulations to Coach Mark Claeys, Assistant Coach Tom
Wade, singles winners Blake Amonett, Chad Ransburg and
Jake Evans and doubles winners Michael Saling & Keegan

FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP
SPOTLIGHT: Center Grove Elementary School
Franklin Township teacher named Indiana
Social Studies Teacher of the Year
Each month, the Center Grove Community School Corporation Board of School Trustees
selects a school to “Spotlight” outstanding students, teachers, and support staff members.
The October Spotlight is on Center Grove Elementary School.
SAM WANG
Who wouldn’t be a little
nervous, but very excited,
to be playing the piano on
the stage of Carnegie Hall
in New York City? Center
Grove Elementary student
Sam Wang, a fourth grader
in Mr. Dustin Russell’s
Extended Learning Class
was featured on Oct. 4 at
the World Class Piano Competition Young Artists
Medalists performance. Sam was invited because
he was a third place winner in the 2013 World Piano
Competition. Besides being a talented musician,
Sam is an innovative and creative student, and a
humble young man.
JENNIFER HOWE
Jennifer Howe hit the
ground running at Center
Grove Elementary and
hasn’t stopped yet. She
quickly established herself
as a positive and uplifting leader as she serves
Center Grove Elementary
students. She is being
recognized because she
and three of her colleagues
are sponsoring a new club called “Owning Up.” The
Owning Up™ Curriculum presents a unique and
comprehensive approach to preventing youth
violence by targeting the root causes of bullying
and other forms of social cruelty. It exposes the
cultural expectations that teach young people to
humiliate and dehumanize others as the way to
achieve power and respect, then challenges them
to transform this dynamic. It helps girls create a
network of friends who “have my back” and are
there to support when girls feel pressured to join
the “mean girls” mentality. Ms. Howe joins music
teacher Brooke Boileau, art teacher Katie McAtee
and Kindergarten teacher Rose Tomishima as
sponsors and mentors to more than 30 young ladies
in Center Grove Elementary’s 5th grade.
JARED BRILES
Can you imagine being
hired as a new PE teacher
and not even having a
gymnasium in which to
do your work? Enter Jared
Briles, an experienced
physical education teacher
who has become a master
of flexibility during our
school renovation. Center
Grove Elementary School’s current gym has been
turned into classroom space and literally every other
inch of space in the school is occupied. So, Mr. Briles
searched high and low and found some alternatives.
Each day he hopes for good weather so he can take
the classes outside, but on those rainy or chilly
days, he conducts class in the teacher workroom, a
hallway, or the front entrance of the school. Middle
School Central has generously offered us the use of
one of their gyms in cold weather. Mr. Briles is being
recognized because he has been the ultimate team
player through all of this with a smile on his face
and abundant flexibility. He will be rewarded with a
brand new, full-size gym after Winter Break.

Students on the Robotics Team include both high school and middle school students working under the direction
of Mr. Chris Campbell, middle school teacher, and Mr. Mark Snodgrass, CGMN teacher.
Greenwood introduces a robotics club
By Cassidy Branagan, GHS student journalist
New this year, Greenwood High School’s
Robotics Club designs, constructs and builds
working robots to maneuver through obstacles and complete tasks.
Robotics club meets twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-8 p.m. While in
Robotics club, students get hands-on experience in engineering skills to get a feel for the
career while also having fun. Students must
work together to design and build a working
robot that can be able to work its way through
challenges and obstacles.
There is a spot for any student from elementary to high school levels.
“There are four different levels, elementary, middle school, and two high school levels,” Mr. Chris Campbell, Robotics Club team
sponsor, said. “The FTC, First Technical Challenge, grades 7-12 division is planning to get
in two local competitions at Center Grove and
at Shelbyville and try to qualify to go to State.
Our first competition will be held at Center
Grove on Nov. 22, but we still have a long way
to go before we are ready.”
These robots are controlled by a remote
control, and it has to complete certain tasks.
“We have built a prototype and it works,”
junior Chase VanDyke said. “We have not
competed in any competitions yet but I will be
the head driver and control the robot while it
completes its task.”
These tasks must be completed by the robot
with no help but the controller.
“Each team must pair up with another team
and compete against two other teams, and the
robot must lift and carry five balls and place
them into tubes,” Mr. Campbell said.
Although this may be fun and a great way
to spend extra time, there is a cost. This club
is very expensive.
“We are not sure how much the students
will have to pay, but it may be about $50 each,”
Mr. Campbell said. “We have already paid our
dues for our competitions which were $500,
$125 dollars per team, and there are two
teams and two competitions. We have spent
about $2,000 in tools and equipment so far.”
The Robotics Club received a few donations from Eli Lilly, Transcorr and Endress +
Hauser.
There has been an interest in starting a robotics club at GHS for a long time.
“When Sam Hicks did well with his robotics project, I thought that we needed a club
in this school for others to participate,” Mr.
Campbell said.
Everyone gets involved and has certain
roles.
“There is a design, construction and mechanical part and each person is put in a
group, and you build on to the robot each
time,” freshman, Justin VanDyke said. “I’ve
always been interested in how mechanical things work and I like to design stuff so I
thought that this would be a good experience.”
Robotics Club is not a common club so
many students do not know about it.
“AJ Montgomery was going to the first
meeting, and I was bored and had nothing to
do. I went with him and I ended up thinking
it was fun,” Chase said. “My favorite part is
building and I like that I am head builder and
like the leadership. I also like seeing a project
get done and seeing how it will get applied to
the final project.”
Perry Township’s Jeff Teter ensures students
have a clean, safe learning environment
Submitted for The Southside Times
Mr. Jeff Teter has served Perry Township
Schools for over 34 years. During his career,
he worked at Keystone Middle School, Winchester Village Elementary, Perry Meridian
Middle School and the Perry Township Education Center.
“My day begins at 6 a.m. I 'open' the building by turning off the alarm, unlocking doors,
turning on lights and doing any weather-related tasks such as dropping salt on the sidewalk
on icy, snowy days. My job is to ensure the
work/school environment is safe and clean for
the staff and students. Every day is different
and filled with a variety of tasks such as setting
up/tearing down conference rooms for meetings, general maintenance/repair and cleaning up the occasional spills. The best part of
his job is working around the little ones (preschool children).
My wife, Sandy, and I make and sell apple
butter using apples picked from our own trees
every fall. We also enjoy spending time with
our grandchildren. Wednesday evenings are
“date night” with our 16-month-old granddaughter, Kaitlynn. I firmly believe that children remember the time that you spend with
them, not the things you buy for them. My
children still talk a family camping trip at Indiana Beach years ago that was a lot of fun!
I’m retiring in December and I will miss all
the friends I’ve made over the years. There will
be lots of family time; I’m looking forward to
that the most. During retirement, I plan to
pursue my hobbies. I want to open a “store”
on ETSY to sell custom wood work (not an
assembly line of wood products). I am also
very excited to begin beekeeping. I have researched the topic well and already built a bee
hive. “Uncorking” my first queen bee when
she arrives via the mail will be very exciting as
will be straining the very first honey.”

Perry Meridian’s Tansy
places 8th in Semi-State
Perry Meridian High School junior, John Tansy,
made it to the State Cross Country meet with an 8th
place finish at the Semi-State last week. His time of
16:00 places him 9th place all-time in the history of
Perry Meridian High School. He will compete at ISU
in the State meet.

Simple swaps for
healthier holidays
RECIPE
For The Southside Times by Family Features
Rich, decadent, calorie-laden foods go
hand-in-hand with the holidays. By choosing
better-for-you snacks and swapping ingredients in some of your favorite recipes, you can
keep the pounds from creeping up as you celebrate this season.
You can satisfy your cravings and stay full
by consuming high-quality, protein-rich
foods with fewer calories and lower saturated
fat. Exchanging sugary treats and unhealthy
ingredients for flavorful, more nutritious options will let you still enjoy your holiday treats
without the guilt (or added weight) when the
festivities have passed.
Follow
these
tips from the dietitians at the Soyfoods Association
of North America
to keep on track
for healthier, happier holidays this
year:
• Plan ahead
before you hit the
party buffet table
by eating a protein and fiber-rich
light meal or snack beforehand. A glass of soymilk will help fill you up and offers 7 grams of
protein.
• In place of candy and sweets, keep
healthy nibbles on hand, such fruits, nuts and
steamed or dried edamame. Individual packages of these nutritious snacking options also
make excellent stocking stuffers.
• For sweet, rich, baked goods such as
cookies, soft-yeast breads and quick breads,
swap some of the traditional flour with soy
flour, which will substitute well for up to 30
percent of the wheat or rye flour. Just remember that soy-rich dough browns faster, so replacing more than 40 percent of other flours
with soy flour is not recommended.
• Modify your favorite recipes to reduce saturated fat, sugar and salt. Vegetable oil, cinnamon or nutmeg, and herbs and spices deliver
mouth-pleasing flavors that let you trim the
less healthy alternatives. For example, tofu is
so versatile you can use it as ricotta in lasagna, cream in pumpkin soup or in chocolate
pudding. This extra indulgent, better-for-you
chocolate soy dessert contains only 160 calories, allowing you to contemplate a second
serving.

Soy-Silken Dark
Chocolate Pudding
Prep time: 10 minutes
Makes: 6 servings
• 1 package (12.3 ounces)
silken tofu, drained
• 2/3 cup dark unsweetened
cocoa powder
• 1 cup powdered sugar
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• Whipped topping (optional)
Place tofu, cocoa powder, powdered sugar
and vanilla in food processor. Puree for one
minute, scraping down sides as needed, or until very smooth. Divide
equally into six dishes
and top with whipped
topping before serving,
if desired.
You can adapt this
recipe with your favorite treat combinations, such as layering
the pudding with fresh
raspberries or banana
slices, then finishing
with whipped topping
and caramel sauce. For
a fun Mexican-style
twist, stir a pinch of ground cinnamon and
cayenne pepper into pudding, then top with
whipped topping and chocolate shavings.

Worshipping at CUMC since 1974
Bullock family has attended Christ United Methodist Church for many generations
WHERE WE WORSHIP
Christ United Methodist Church has been
a part of the Bullock family’s life for generations. Jeff Bullock, along with his parents and
sister, started attending CUMC in 1974. Diana started attending with Jeff in 1992, and
the family has been going together ever since.
Here, learn more about the Bullock family and
their involvement in CUMC.
What is it about your place of worship that
helps you grow spiritually?
“We feel comfortable and at at-home at
Christ United Methodist Church. Everyone is
nice and welcoming, and there is a sense of
community and accountability.” – Jeff
What is one meaningful event that has
taken place at your place of worship?
“I married Diana at the church in 1993. Jennifer and Olivia were both baptized there, and
Jennifer was confirmed there in 2009. I am
the Main Advisor for Jenny’s Venturing Crew,
which is chartered through the church. I enjoy
doing that because it gives me a chance to get
back into scouting and it’s great to have that
bond with my daughter.” – Jeff
Why would you recommend your place of
worship to someone?
“There’s always a friendly face when you
walk in the door. You can come as you are and
not be afraid of judgment. It appeals to everyone’s likes and interests, because there is
a traditional and contemporary service, multiple Sunday school classes of various sizes,
and there is also a mid-week service as well as
other groups and Bible studies throughout the
week.” –Diana
What is it about your place of worship that
makes you feel connected to your spouse,
children, parents or family?
“We all worship there as a family and we are
all involved in the church in various roles. I
lead worship once a month, taught preschool
for 10 years, and I volunteer in the nursery
and VBS. Jennifer is active in the youth group,
teaches children’s church every Sunday, and
is president of Venturing Crew 545. Jeff volunteers every year for
Christ United Methodist Church
the Fish Fry and is the
8540 U.S. 31 S.
Indianapolis, IN 46227
main advisor for Jen(317) 882-1549
ny’s Venturing Crew,
Cumc-indy.net
which is chartered
through the church.”

Now is the day, now is the time to seek God
DEVOTIONAL
By Paul Kirby
"Will he plead against me with his great power? No; but he would put strength in me. There
the righteous might dispute with him; so should
I be delivered forever from my judge. Behold, I
go forward, but he is not there; and backward,
but I cannot perceive him." ~ Job 23:6-8
The struggle of Job is common to all of us.
He knows that there is a God in heaven but he
does not personally know the God of Heaven. He is searching to know Him. He thought
that he did know Him but now everything
has changed about his life. Everything that
he knew about God or thought he knew has
proven to be faulty, not false, but faulty.
It is not God that is at fault. He never is and,
I stress, He never is. It is us and our perception of Him. We tend to want God to be human, like us, with all of the warts and moles
and personality defects that we have. We, in
other words, want to humanize God and to
deify ourselves. This is absolutely the wrong
way to understand God.
In the beginning God did in fact create man
in His own likeness and image which means
that He created us to be gods in a sense. He
did not create us to be His god but created us
to have a sense of Himself and a sense of our
importance to Him. We are important to Him
because we are His offspring, or at least, were
intended to be. Then, something happened.
That something is called sin. Sin best defined
is intentional offense against God. Adam and
Eve did what they did knowing full-well that it
was against God's will. Their Creator "Father"
had specifically spoken to Adam about this
very thing but they did not heed His words
and intentionally went against them. They
sinned. By the sin they lost that precious godlikeness, that god-image that they had been
created with. Adam in the image of God and
Eve in the image of Adam and both fell from
that wonderful place that God had created for
them to live in, and I am not speaking of Eden;
I am speaking of in His heart.
Now, Job says, "If I go forward, He is not
there; and, if I go backward, I don't find Him
there either." God is not in the "back there"
nor is He in the "yet to be." He is in the everpresent now. You see, those wonderful days of
yesterday when you felt so secure in the Lord
are not good enough for now. Now is the day,
now is the time, now is the Lord present with
us and now He wants us to know that.
Like Job, all too often we fall back on a past
relationship with God or we spend too much
time looking forward to a time of better things
because things now are miserable. We need to
worship God and enjoy the presence of God
in the now.
God bless and go and have a great day.
Paul A. Kirby is the pastor at the Church of God
at 3939 S. Emerson Ave.
