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. Patrick J. Olmstead Jr. elected to Indiana State Bar Association board of governors 299 Lease for $ 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 /mo 2015 Lexus RX 350 FWD 399 Lease for $ /mo 27 months, 10,000 miles per year. $1,399 (CT 200h), $2,999 (RX 350) due at signing.

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. What's going on?

FEATURE By Nicole Davis 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.” Want to Advertise? The Southside Times reaches a vast segment of our community.

Gerald Sargent A product of ss-times.com • Week of October 30 – November 5, 2014 Publisher Emeritus Rick Myers Publisher Brian Kelly Chief Executive Officer 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 GOVERNMENT WATCHDOG GREENWOOD COMMON COUNCIL Meeting, Oct. 27 Nicole Davis Editor Carey Germana Production/Art Manager Jo Carandang, Jeen Endris Graphic Design Serving the Southside Since 1928 Members of to take time to get approval from the council 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.” City budgets are public and can be viewed at gateway.ifionline.org. ■ What happened?

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.

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.” Cheryl Dobbs, Director Greenwood Library The Southside Times VIEWS ss-times.com • Week of October 30 – November 5, 2014 OUR VIEW 5 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 "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." 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. BELIEVE IT! Our nation has all sorts of arcane, nonsensical laws on the books.

BACKSHOP 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.

The Southside Times COMMUNITY ss-times.com • Week of October 30 – November 5, 2014 9 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.” Balancing his time spent in the minFather Vince Lampert holding the Rite of Exorcism book. 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, Francis and Clare, Father Lampert was asked what he was called to do.

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. 10 Week of October 30 – November 5, 2014 • ss-times.com NIGHT & DAY CALENDAR FUNDRAISER HALLOWEEN Warm Up For Winter • Southwood Baptist Church is holding its annual coat drive for the community.

Photos by Brian Ruckle 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 Southside trick-or-treat hours Beech Grove: Oct. 31 5-8 p.m. Indianapolis (Franklin and Perry Townships): Oct. 31 6-8 p.m. Greenwood: Oct. 31 6-8 p.m. 12 Week of October 30 – November 5, 2014 • ss-times.com HEALTH The Southside Times One of Indiana’s Largest Lift Chair Showrooms!

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.

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 HEALTH The Southside Times Bye, bye my American pie? digest cheese slows down digestion and adds unwanted thickness to your waistline.

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.” Look for additional Halloween events on The Southside Times calendar on page 10.

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.

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.

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.

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.” ~ Jeff Teter 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.

The Southside Times 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. For more recipes and ideas, visit soyfoods. org. 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. Nutritional analysis per serving (1/3 cup): 160 calories, 6 g protein, 31 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 2.5 g fat, 0 g saturated fat, 0g trans fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 20 mg sodium. familyfeatures.com AROUND TOWN The Social encourages support of those who are food insecure this Halloween Earn some community service hours while out with friends and family and help provide for seniors in need in our community.

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.

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.
