Fair Oaks Farms Is More Than Just Milking Cows
by Rick A. Richards
Visitors to Fair Oaks Farms get up close to the cows on a bus tour through one of the barns. (Provided by Fair Oaks Farms)
At first glance, there doesn’t seem to be anything all that compelling about a cow. Compared to their barnyard brethren, they’re not
as sought after by little girls as a horse or the
subject of authors as much as the pig (“Charlotte’s Web” or “The Three Little Pigs”).
But take a short trip to Fair Oaks Farms
in Newton County and your perspective will
change. The cow moved to center stage and
becomes the most amazing barnyard animal.
By the time your tour is complete, the cow will
have been elevated to the most intriguing animal on the planet.
Fair Oaks Farms, which has been around
since 1998, is the largest dairy operation in the
United States. The family-owned operation is
home to more than 32,000 head of dairy cows
and hosts more than 400,000 visitors a year in
an elaborate tour that includes a short bus trip
through a feed lot and barn, a visit to a milking parlor, an interactive education area where
you can try your hand at milking a robotic cow,
a 3D film, an outdoor play area for children,
and the birthing barn where visitors can watch
some of the 80 to 90 births a day at the farm.

“Chances are pretty good that some time during
your visit, you’ll have the chance to see a cow being
born,” said Susan Webb, an administrative assistant at Fair Oaks.
“Our main goal is to make sure visitors understand that milk and dairy products are good for
you, they’re safe and used in a variety of ways,” said
Webb.

On average, a single dairy cow weighs about
1,400 pounds, is 5-feet 5-inches tall and each day
consumes 40 pounds of feed and hay, 50 pounds of
silage and between 25 and 50 gallons of water.
“We show people the connection between the farm
and what ends up on their table,” said Webb. “They
get to see how milk is produced and gathered from
our cows.”
Fairs Oaks accomplishes that by creating a fun
learning experience. Not only is Fair Oaks a working farm, it’s also an education and entertainment
center. Fair Oaks calls its experience “edutainment.”
School groups frequent the farm and so do tours
by civic and community groups and senior citizen
In Case Of Emergency, Dial

organizations. When each group is done, they can
visit the onsite restaurant and order from the menu
(the grilled cheese sandwiches are high recommended), sample Fair Oaks cheese or watch as cheese
and ice cream is made behind a glass-enclosed wall
that runs the length of the restaurant.
Tony Wiedman, marketing manager for Fair
Oaks, echoed Webb about the importance of education at Fair Oaks.
“We want to teach as much as possible about
dairy and cheese and the milking process and make
it fun,” said Wiedman. “We make it fun so people
love to come here.
“I like to walk around every day and see what’s
going on and talk to people. Customers know best.
I want to know what their experience was,” said
Wiedman.
Nearly without fail, Wiedman said visitors tell
him the thing they liked best was the birthing barn.
“The birthing barn is our biggest attraction,” said
Wiedman.
Webb agrees. “The favorite part of the tour for me
is the bus tour and the birthing barn. It’s so peaceful. I like sitting there and enjoying the miracle.”
Wiedman explained that a lot of visitors to Fair
Oaks didn’t grow up on a farm and simply don’t
know either the connection between the farm and
the grocery store or how a farm operates.

Another popular stop is the 72-stall milking parlor. From the time a cow enters the milking parlor
until it leaves, it’s an 8½ minute trip. Each cow is
milked three times a day, meaning the parlor is
busy 21 out of 24 hours a day, since a single milking
of the 3,000 cows in a barn takes seven hours. After a one-hour clean-up, the milking process begins
again.

In all, Fair Oaks has 550 employs with 450 of
them working on the farm and the remainder working in The Adventure Center.
The newest attraction is the 10,000-square-foot
Green Gate Garden, said Wiedman. “This was put
in place to educate first-hand how fruits, vegetables,
herbs and flowers are grown while learning about
the practices that produce nutrient-rich soil to help
all the plantings grow and flourish,” said Wiedman.
“If people’s only experience with fruits and vegetables is what they see at the supermarket, the Green
Gate Garden helps them take a step back to see how
everything is grown, picked and harvested.”
Wiedman said most people don’t realize there is
so much to do at Fair Oaks. “Everyone stopping by
should take the tour,” he said. “There are games you
can do, there is something for everyone.”
Mooville is a children’s play area where they can
drive mini-tractors, find their way through the “Moo
Maze”, and climb a giant milk bottle.
“I love talking to people and listening to people,”
said Wiedman. “The customer is never wrong. I
want to find out what we can do better and what
we’re doing right.”
An outdoor play area for children call Mooville has a maze, mini-tractors
and bounce pad. In the background is the birthing barn.

“I talked to a couple recently from the United
Kingdom. They said they’d never seen anything like
this,” said Wiedman. “A lot of people driving to Chicago make it a point to stop here. And a lot of people
from the region come here, but it’s not uncommon to
see people from Texas and all over.
Wiedman said that of the 25,000 acres at Fair
Oaks, 19,000 are used to grow silage corn and alfalfa hay and another 3,000 acres are set aside to
protect steams and provide habitat for wildlife.
The 32,000 cows at Fair Oaks are kept on 10 separate farms with a little more than 3,200 head on
each, said Wiedman, adding that they are milked
three times a day producing 280,000 gallons of milk
daily.

Me,” “It’s In His Kiss,” “Rescue Me,” and more.

Monika Herzig, acclaimed jazz pianist, composer
and recording artist, returns to Lubeznik Center for
the Arts on Sun., Aug. 1 at 7 p.m.
Herzig’s concert spotlights legendary Indianaborn composers and songwriters including Cole
Porter, Wes Montgomery, JJ Johnson, Hoagy Carmichael, David Baker, Mary Auferherde, Harry Von
Tilzer, Freddie Hubbard and Julia Niebergall.
Like the great jazz cities of New Orleans and Chicago, Indiana has long been a destination for legendary jazz performers. Historic Indiana Avenue in
Indianapolis was a mecca for jazz, having played
host to such greats as Count Basie, Duke Ellington,
Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie.
A touring jazz artist, Herzig has performed at
prestigious jazz clubs and festivals, opening for acts
such as Tower of Power, Sting and the Dixie Dregs
both in the US and Europe. She has produced five
CDs and is a Downbeat Magazine award winner.
Herzig’s tributes cover many genres of jazz —
from blues to swing to ragtime. Her husband,
guitarist Peter Kienle, will perform with her in
Lubeznik Center’s distinctive Hyndman Gallery.
LaPorte County Poet Laureate Susan Block will set
poetry to music.
Reservations for Herzig’s performance can be
made by phone at 219-874-4900 or online at www.
lubeznikcenter.org. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. Tickets
are $6 for Lubeznik Center members and $10 for

Studio b. Gallery is proud to present work by Alan
Brunettin in a solo show that opens with a reception
on Saturday July 24. The event is free to the public
and offers an opportunity to meet the artist.
Alan Brunettin (born 1954) is a native of Chicago
and a graduate of the American Academy of Art and
Northern Illinois University. His work took shape
out of the expressionist and conceptualist movements, as well as the influence of his father, a classically trained sculptor.
As a painter of urban landscapes, Brunettin sees
the city as a living sculpture, and seeks to capture
segments of that dimensional environment in his
own composition by concentrating focus on particular loci within that “sculpture.” Light and shadow
play a strong role in creating that dimension.
He is also strongly influenced by the city grid—
the ever-present geometry of urban life—while at
the same time concentrating on the haphazard
which lies hidden or unnoticed within the order of
that grid. In his paintings, the structural elements
of the drawing become an architecture of their own,
creating order even in the stylized chaos of the
brushstrokes.

beautiful Briar Leaf Golf Course, a boat parade
on Saturday evening through downtown Michigan
City and a huge block and boat party where you will

Parade, several pre-race VIP events, VIP and corporate tent and seating at the race, and last but not
least the race itself.
History of the Sport
Offshore powerboat racing was first ‘recognized’
as a sport when, in 1904, a race took place from the
south-eastern coast England to Calais, France. In
the United States, the APBA (American Power Boat
Association) was formed during that period. The
USA’s first recorded race was in 1911, in California.

219/879-3993
The sport increased in popularity over the
next few years
in the United
States,
with
10 races being
scheduled during the 1917 season
The sport entered the ‘modern’ era in the
60’s, with racers competing in mammoth events
such as the Bahamas 500 mile race. During that
time, the ‘navigator’ position in the race boat was
extremely important (unlike in today’s small, tracklike circuits), as finding small checkpoints over a
hundred miles of open ocean was a difficult endeavor.
Modern races are short, ‘track’ style events with
much improved viewing for the spectators, and the
different categories of boats have multiplied far beyond the 4 classes that were common through much
of the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s.
Offshore powerboat racing is racing by large,
specially designed ocean-going powerboats. It is
typically point to point. Probably one of the largest, most dangerous, and most powerful racing machines of all, the extreme expense of the boats and
the fuel required to participate make it an expensive and elite sport.
Many different types and classes of boats can
compete in individual races, on the same course,
at the same time. Offshores have been known as a
“Rich man’s” sport, however, now even people with
normal pleasure boats can compete in newly formed
classes (with minor safety modifications). This may
include single or twin piston engine V-bottom boats,
single or twin piston engine catamaran style boats,
four piston engine boats, and turbine boats.

“Music and Motor Cars” will take place at the
Westchester Township History Museum, 700 W.

p.m. Cool down with a glass of lemonade and dish

with his signature style.
Tapping into his vast repertoire of jazz, bossa
nova, soul, Latin, classic 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, as well
as traditional Spanish and flamenco, Aglinskas’
performance will feature his original solo fingerstyle guitar arrangements from his recordings “Sepia Session” and “South Shore Soul.” Hear audio

“Around the house and at church, Mama and
Papa spoke nothing but Polish. They learned just
enough English to get by, or barely get by. Like most
immigrant children, I spoke English and Polish
since I was a little girl.
“Mama was a strong woman. Then came the Depression, and we all had to be strong. Even when we
lost the car or had nothing to eat but potatoes, our
family stayed together. It seemed like the War just
ended when the Spanish Flu swept across the land.
I have never seen anything like it and, I pray God,
never will again.”
These are some of the lines spoken by “Sophie
Kowalski” in the one-woman play An Immigrant’s
Story, being performed Thurs., Aug. 12, and Fri.,
Aug. 13, at 7:00 p.m. and Sun., Aug. 15 at 2:00 p.m.
at the Center for History, 808 W. Washington St.,
South Bend, IN.
Reservations are Required
Tickets are $5 and free for members; reservations are required. An Immigrant’s Story is being
presented by the Center for History in conjunction
with the exhibit History Happened Here, which features a section chronicling the importance of immigration in the local community. The exhibit is on
view through September 12.
Mary Ann Moran gives a compelling performance
as “Sophie,” sharing reminisces and memories as
she looks through mementos her mother saved
through the years. The play provides humorous as
well as poignant reflections of Sophie’s family as
well as South Bend’s history. Moran is a librarian
with the St. Joseph County Public Library. She has
been active in community theater for the past 25
years and is a member of the Board of Directors at
South Bend Civic Theatre. She has participated in
several of the Center for History’s Mystery at the
Mansion and Christmas at Copshaholm specialty
tours. According to Moran, “Sophie’s words bring to
mind many of the stories my own grandparents told
about growing up in South Bend.”
Author of Play a Prolific Writer
An Immigrant’s Story was written by Roger
Chrastil, who has penned all of the Center for History’s Mystery at the Mansion as well as Christmas at
Copshaholm specialty tours. Chrastil lives in South
Bend, where he works as marketing coordinator for
WNIT Public Television. He has published his poetry in numerous journals. His short story “Zatopek Enters the Stadium at Prague” was published
in the 1987 anthology The Pan American Games: A
Literary Memory and the short story “Divine Wind”
in Flying Island. Chrastil has also written two oneact plays, and has recently completed his first novel,
The Second Law.

A Decorated/Lighted Boat Parade on Pine Lake
The La Porte Area Lake Association, the La Porte
Yacht Club and Centier Bank will once again sponsor Venetian Night, a lighted/decorated boat parade, on Sat., Aug., 7, from 7:00-11:00 p.m. at the
La Porte Yacht Club. This year’s theme is “Your Favorite Song.” Parking available at Fay’s Marina.
2010 Lake Association President, Bob Gius, said,
“the parade theme this year, Your Favorite Song, is
sure to bring a lot of creativity to the parade and we
already have participants registered.” Mayor Kathy
Chroback is scheduled to judge again and present
the awards. “Once again the La Porte Lake Association and the La Porte Yacht Club are sponsoring
their annual ‘Venetian Night Lighted Boat Parade’
on Pine Lake. This is a terrific event and I would
encourage everyone to go down to the lake shore and
watch the festivities. This has grown each year and
really showcases our beautiful lake and reminds us
of how lucky we are to have these natural assets
within our community.”
Entertainment, provided by La Porte’s own Elwood Splinters Blues Band, will begin at 7:00 p.m.
The parade will begin at 8:00 p.m. Participants will
be judged lakeside at the Yacht Club then circle
North and South Pine before returning back to the
Yacht Club. Raffle Prizes from area businesses will
be awarded throughout the event and 1st, 2nd and
3rd place winners will be awarded before 11 p.m.
Area residents and neighbors are welcomed to attend and support the event and utilize the public
beaches. And as always, beach-goers are asked to
clean up their respective areas before leaving.
Deadline for registration is August 1st. The cost
is $20 for Lake Association/Yacht Club members
and $25 for non-members. Registration fees will
benefit the Association’s programs that monitor the
health and beauty of our area lakes. Participants
can either log onto www.laporteyachtclub.com to
download a boat registration form or stop by Fay’s,
Huber’s, or the La Porte Yacht Club to pick one up.

18 Hole Ladies Guest Day at LBCC
“In the Good Old Summertime” was the theme
for this year’s 18 Hole Ladies Guest Day at Long
Beach Country Club. The event was held on July
13th with 68 golfers in attendance. Mary O’Neil
did a wonderful job as the Guest Day Chairperson.
She was in charge of selecting the theme, shopping
for prizes, picking the menu, and coordinating the
event with the staff at the golf club.
The day started off a little wet, but by the time
breakfast was over, the ladies were ready for an
8:30 am shotgun start. A delicious lunch was prepared by the club’s new chef, Justin Evans. A cocktail party welcoming the members and their guests
was held at the home of Paulette Harnach the night
before.
Brian Godfrey, the club pro, divided the field into
two flights, with prizes going to the top three teams
in each flight. Guests were also competing for skill
awards on five different holes. The skill prize was
a bottle of “Beach Glass” wine from our own local
Shady Creek Winery. The ladies paid Allan Haley, the assistant pro, to shoot their drives for them
from the first tee. Over $300 was collected for the
Michigan City Salvation Army food pantry from the
“Pay the Pro Hole”. It was a great day “In the Good
Old Summertime!”

Members)
Technology is great, but it is changing all the
time-it’s hard to keep up with what’s available when
you’re busy running your business. This workshop
is designed for the business person who feels “there
must be a better way” to get things done, but doesn’t
have time to investigate options.
The format will be quick-not a how-to workshop,
but rather a problem/solution information session
with plenty of handouts and free resources you can
use. The instructor offers a money-back guarantee
if you don’t walk away with at least three new ideas
from this workshop. Taught by Kathy Sipple of My
Social Media Coach.

monitor what is being said about your company,
your employees and your competitors! Taught by
Kathy Sipple of My Social Media Coach.

Oil Artist Trish Weeks at Courtyard
The Courtyard Gallery will be hosting an exhibition of paintings by oil artist Trish Weeks on Sat.,
July 24, noon-5 p.m., and Sun., July 25, noon-4 p.m.
MI time.
Trish has been working creatively with color, texture and form for over 30 years. She is a graduate
of the University of Cincinnati, with a BS in design.
Trish draws inspiration from her experiences in the
Midwest and the Carolinas where she spends much
of her time.
“I am drawn to organic landscapes that seem to
breathe and vibrate with amazing energy.” Her work
portrays expressionistic views of nature, created by
combining simple compositions and complex layers
of color by using a palette knife which allows her to
intensify the impact and clarity of colors.
The Courtyard Gallery is open Mon.-Sat., 11 a.m.6 p.m., Sun. 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Tues. by appointment.

Umbrellas Opening in Harbert as Umbrellas of Harbert
by Charles McKelvy
“And last year we had a record sale, with Eileen
Menser’s Pond Life umbrella with its dragon fly going for $975. It was beautiful,” Kochanny said.
Kochanny and his wife Eileen are the proud owners of Modie Lavin’s 2009 creation, which she titled,
Spill Wine, Dig that Girl in honor of the song of the
same title. Kochanny proudly displayed his Umbrella of Harbert for visitors and noted that he keeps it
out in all kinds of weather, throughout the year.
That is because most artists, like Modie Lavin,
use acrylic house paints to transform the blank umbrellas into dazzlingly different works of art.
“A fourth grade class did an umbrella a few
years ago,” Kochanny said. “But so far this year, we
haven’t had any kids ask for a blank umbrella.”
Harbert is the place to be on third Saturdays of August.
A “painted lady” looking all the world like a smiling mermaid has appeared in Harbert and is looking forward to the sixth annual Umbrellas of Harbert event at the Center of the World Showroom at
13400 Red Arrow Highway on Saturday, August 21
at 5 p.m. (EDT).
Amy Borrelli Schaus painted her lake-loving lady
on a 9-foot-diameter umbrella to bring public awareness to the historic hamlet of Harbert in Chikaming
Township and to help raise thousands of dollars for
local charities at the auction that will be held at the
August 21st event.
If past years are any indication, 20 or more such
painted umbrellas will be available for sale at the
live auction, which begins with a floor price of $150
for each umbrella. And the professionally called
auction will begin only after the artists and potential buyers have had a chance to view the colorful,
one-of-a-kind works of art suitable for—well—for
opening on one’s patio or in one’s garden.
Harbert Business Association President Rich Kochanny said in a recent interview at his Vineyard
Lofts development in Harbert that each of the 20
or more umbrellas created each year has sold to a
satisfied patron.
This Umbrella of Harbert by Diane Hass is for everyone to enjoy
because it is used every year to promote the annual
Umbrellas of Harbert event on the third Saturday of
August at Center of the World Showroom, beginning at 5 p.m.
Rich Kochanny was
pleased to purchase
Modie Lavin’s Spill
Wine, Dig that
Girl umbrella for
his Vineyard Lofts
development in Harbert
at the 2009 auction.
The idea for the annual Umbrellas of Harbert event was born at
Café Gulistan in 2004 when Eileen Kochanny suggested the
idea as a way to attract folks to Harbert every summer.
THE
July 22, 2010
Page 29
Umbrellas provided at discount from the Sawyer
Garden Center have until August 1 to contact Rich
Kochanny at 269-876-7879 or [email protected]
com to reserve an umbrella.
“We provide the umbrellas for free to the artists
but they supply the paint and creativity,” Kochanny
said.
While he does not describe himself as an artist,
Kochanny said he is artistic enough to have entered
a mixed-media umbrella in the event a few years
ago. “I found some old Molly Pitcher (wine) labels
from the winery that was here and used them as
the basis of my design.” He smiled and added that
his umbrella commanded a worthy price at auction.
Amy Borrelli Schaus would love to have you be the winning bidder on
August 21 for her “Painted Lady” Umbrella of Harbert.
Slow down and enjoy all that Harbert has to offer this summer!
Kochanny said the Harbert Business Association
is achieving its goal of using the Umbrellas of Harbert “to bring public awareness of the town of Harbert as a diverse community with many businesses
and cultural offerings. And charities benefit, because over the last five years, the event has raised
thousands of dollars for such local charities as Chikaming Open Lands, Radio Harbor Country, Harbert Park, and the Harbor Country Food Pantry.”
Indeed, the Harbert Business Association was
founded in 2004 as a vehicle to bring the Harbert
business community together to foster a stronger
business climate while giving back to the community.
The Umbrellas of Harbert have clearly opened
the way to achieving those worthy goals.
For more information about the Umbrellas of Harbert event on Saturday, August 21 at the Center of
the World Showroom, please contact Rich Kochanny
at: 269-876-7879 or [email protected]
Meanwhile, please reduce your speed as you
cruise through heavenly Harbert and enjoy all the
lovely umbrellas that seem to be opening up everywhere.
The mother/daughter team of Darlene Kuiper Heemstra and Debbie
Heemstra Novak created this Umbrella of Harbert called Stained Glass
that will be auctioned on August 21 in support of local charities.
Elizabeth Randle is back for the second year: her latest creation
may be seen until August 21 in front of Dorajane on
Red Arrow Highway in Harbert.

A collection of paintings by a longtime Chicago
artist and a collection of Japanese stencil prints are
among the exhibitions to be hosted by Valparaiso
University’s Brauer Museum of Art during its 20102011 season.
The upcoming season at Brauer Museum will include seven featured exhibitions:
• Aug. 24 through Nov. 19 – “Heeding the Voice
of Heaven: Sadao Watanabe Biblical Stencil Prints”
and “Everyday Art: Casual Kimono from Mid 20thCentury Japan.”
• Dec. 3 through March 20 – “Recent Views of
an Inner World: Paintings by Richard Loving” and
“Boonville: Photographs by Timothy Briner.”
• March 30 through April 17 – “Secondary School
Showcase.”
• April 20 through May 8 – “Valparaiso University Art Student Exhibition.”
• May 13 through Aug. 7 – “Tales (not truths) by
The Mechanic & The Handyman: Jno Cook & Gordon Ligocki.”
Starting the new season will be an exhibition
featuring Sadao Watanabe, a renowned Japanese
Christian printmaker who has depicted stories from
the Bible in his original stencil prints.
“He is a beloved figure on campus here and received an honorary doctorate from Valpo in 1987,”
said Gregg Hertzlieb, director/curator of Brauer
Museum. “Because several individuals affiliated
with the University brought back from Japan examples of his original prints, many people on campus
and in the surrounding community own Watanabe
prints that now are quite valuable.”
In conjunction with the Watanabe prints, Katherine Kuster, a resident of Valparaiso, will display her
collection of mid-20th century kimonos.
An opening reception for the Kuster Collection
and “Heeding the Voice of Heaven” will take place
at 7 p.m. Aug. 27. A video screening in conjunction
with the Watanabe exhibition will be held Sept. 1
and a gallery talk is scheduled for Sept. 22. Each of
the events will be free and open to the public.
“Recent Views of an Inner World,” which will
showcase the paintings of a longtime Chicago artist and retired painting professor from the School of
the Art Institute of Chicago, Richard Loving, will be
featured at Brauer Museum during a winter exhibition.
In conjunction with Loving’s paintings, student
artist Timothy Briner, a graduate of Chesterton
High School, will display his photograph series
“Boonville.” The photographs chronicle his travels
across the country to towns all named Boonville in
various states, documenting aspects of American
life in towns that share not only the same name,
but also similar struggles.
An opening reception for “Recent Views of an Inner World” and “Boonville” will take place Dec. 3 at
THE
July 22, 2010
Page 31
7 p.m, and Loving will present a gallery talk at the
museum on Jan. 19 at 7 p.m. Each of the events will
be held at Brauer Museum and is free and open to
the public.
Concluding Brauer Museum’s 2010-2011 season
is an exhibition of mixed media, “Tales (not truths)
by The Mechanic & The Handyman: Jno Cook &
Gordon Ligocki.”
Hertzlieb said that Cook, of Chicago, and Ligocki,
of Winamac, Ind., deserve to be celebrated through
overviews of their long and distinguished careers.
“Both are experimental, even quirky, in their creations, challenging and provoking viewers through
their mixed media pieces that are frequently conceptual in their nature in addition to being beautiful in appearance,” Hertzlieb said.
An opening reception for the Cook/Ligocki exhibition will take place May 13 at 7 p.m., and Hertzlieb
will present a gallery talk July 13 at 7 p.m. Each of
the events will be held at Brauer Museum and is
free and open to the public.
More information about Brauer Museum’s 20102011 season, including a complete list of exhibitionrelated events, is available online at www.valpo.
edu/artmuseum. The museum is open 10 a.m.-5
p.m. Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; 10 a.m.-8:30

Summer Leadership Camp for Youth
Leadership La Porte County recently completed
its 3rd annual Summer Leadership Camp for middle school students. Called Leadership La Porte
County Youth, the camp was held at Kesling Park
and the Ropes Challenge Course in Michigan City.
Over 40 students from the 6th,7th, and 8th grades
at La Porte and New Prairie Schools participated
in activities to teach leadership skills and positive
healthy living. The camp was funded by grants
from the local Drug Free Partnership and the Indiana Coalition to Improve Adolescent Health (ICIAH). Facilitators for the camp were Elena Mrozinske from TeamConnect, Alliegra Hand from the
Youth Service Bureau, and Jim Jessup, Director of
Leadership La Porte County. They were assisted by
volunteers from the adult leadership alumni and
graduates of the high school leadership program.
“It is amazing to see these kids change in just 4
short days,” Jessup said. “They develop their leadership and personal skills such as responsibility,
communication, team-work, creativity, respect for
others, and confidence,” Jessup added.
Another theme shared at the camp was the importance of healthy living, including exercise, eating well, making good decisions, and staying alco-
hol, tobacco, and drug-free.
“We had the students sign a
pledge that they will protect their
brains and remain alcohol-free. We
even had their parents sign a pledge
to help support them with this decision,” Jessup said.
During the school year the students will continue their leadership
training with meetings and activities that will focus on the community, volunteerism, philanthropy,
and special projects. As a result of a
partnership with the Youth Service Bureau and the
Unity Foundation of La Porte County, a group of the
students will learn about fund-raising and grantmaking for youth projects in La Porte County.
“In the future we want to expand the Leadership
La Porte County Youth program to other schools
and areas of the county, so we are always looking for
new partners and resources to make it happen. It is
a powerful program for an age group that needs positive activities and messages,” Jessup concluded.

Trinity Community Children’s Choir Gives Summer Concert
by Charles McKelvy
Some 28 harmonious children, ages 5 to 12, concluded the Trinity Community Children’s Choral
Summer Institute on July 17 with two lovely performances at Trinity Episcopal Church at 600 Franklin Square.
The Institute, which is in its fifth year, was under
the baton of Vicky Warkentien and combined classic choral repertoire with creative movement, art
making, and Anglican style sociability for the whole
community.
Institute Director Sunny Gardner-Orbovich said:
“The children sang in many languages this year, but
they were heavy on the Latin.”
Kate Ainsworth and Maggie McCarthy assisted
with the Institute, which included a liturgical style
order of pieces, complete with daily readings and a
short musical drama based on the David vs. Goliath
story from the Old Testament.

Sunny said The Trinity Community Children’s
Choir welcomes all children from Michigan City and
will resume weekly practices after September 14
on Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. at the Trinity Church
rectory. “There is no cost, and children get to sing
in various locations and they will sing on the first
Sunday of every month as part of the service here at
Trinity Episcopal Church.”
The Trinity Community Children’s Choir will also
sing prior to performances at this year’s Michigan
City Chamber Music Festival in August. Indeed,
the Festival’s second annual gala fund raiser, called
the Chamber-ama-thon, helped raise funds in support of the Children’s Choir.
For more information about the Trinity Community Children’s Choir, please phone Sunny at 219879-1901 or Kate at 219-879-6944.

Spring House Dedication
Potato Creek State Park will dedicate a newly reconstructed spring house on Aug. 7 at 10 a.m. Eastern time. The reconstruction of this mid-19th century building was a project of the Friends of Potato
Creek State Park with financial support from the
GFWC Progress Club of South Bend; Robert Bosch,
LLC; and the Cheryl Campion Memorial Fund.
After a short dedication ceremony, there will be
an open house for visitors to hear about the spring
house’s use and look inside. Participants should
park at the Porter Rea Cemetery parking lot and
allow time to walk the 3/8 of a mile along Trail 4 to
the site.
Spring houses were built over springs to take advantage of the consistent temperature of the spring
water to store food items. Spring water is about the
same temperature as the surface temperature average. In northern Indiana that is about 50 degrees.
Spring houses were built either of stone or wood
or a combination of the two. Since stone changes
temperature very slowly it retains the coolness of
the water better than wood. This spring house has
a stone foundation and floor with a channel for the
water to flow through. Food was stored in crocks,
jars and cans on the cool floor or directly in the water in the channel. The upper wooden part of the
building kept the sun off and the animals out of the
stored food.
The normal park gate fee of $5 per Indiana vehicle and $7 per out-of-state vehicle will be charged.

“Chess” - A Powerful Rock Opera
CTG’s Chicago Street Theatre, 154 W. Chicago
St., Valparaiso, IN is proud to present a Powerful
Rock Opera - “Chess” with book by Richard Nelson,
lyrics by Tim Rice, and music by Bjorn Ulvaeus and
Benny Andersson, the play will run July 16 – August 1. CTG’s director is Justin Treasure.
The collaborators on “Chess” are giants of rock
music and rock musicals and they have created a
complex rock opera that played to full Broadway
houses and standing ovations. Here the ancient
game becomes a metaphor for romantic rivalries,
competitive gamesmanship, super power politics
and international intrigues. The pawns in this drama form a love triangle: the loutish American chess
star, the earnest Russian champion and a Hungarian American female assistant who arrives at the international chess match in Bangkok with the American but falls for the Russian. From Bangkok to
Budapest the players, lovers, politicians, and spies
manipulate and are manipulated to the pulse of a
monumental rock score that includes “One Night in
Bangkok” and “Heaven Help My Heart.”

Travels with Charley:
A Dry Run on a Relatively Rainy Day in Chicago
by Charles McKelvy
My mother and I picked a Monday in the present
(sort-of) sunny season for a day at the Art Institute
of Chicago and Millennium Park.
We reckoned it would continue to be sunny and
warm on our appointed day, and it was certainly
hot, and humid.
So humid that much of the skyline was shrouded
in clouds as we drove north on the Dan Ryan Expressway.
“Do you think those are rain clouds?” Mom asked.
“Good chance,” I said.
And, yes, when we emerged from the Grant Park
Underground at Van Buren and Michigan, it was
drizzling on our promenade. So we vowed to spend
most of the day in the Art Institute revisiting our favorite paintings by our friends, the fabulous French
Impressionists. Sorry, keepers of the Modern Wing,
but Mom and I remain steadfastly loyal to the likes
of Gustave Caillebotte, Claude Monet, and PierreAuguste Renoir.
And so, after perusing the gift shop for bridge
cards and artsy refrigerator magnets, we ascended
right on up to the light-filled gallery wherein reside
three of our favorite paintings:
My personal favorite: Claude Monet’s ever-timely “Arrival of the
Normandy Train, Gare Saint-Lazare,” 1877, oil on canvas.
The great painters of the late 19th and early 20th
centuries delivered their nutritious eye candy once
again, and when we had our fill, we lifted on up to
the terzo Piano restaurant on the third floor of the
Modern Wing for a sampling of what chef di cucina
Meg Colleran was offering that day. It was all quite
tasty, and, as we dined, we were delighted to discover that the smartly dressed woman at the neighboring table was none other than the strand’s really smart art historian, Joan Chesterton. Madam
Chesterton was presiding over a family outing, and
so we did not keep her longer than to say: “One sees
all the right people in all the right spots.”
And then, when we had had our dessert and coffee, we chanced to gaze out the wide windows and
saw that the sun was making a stellar appearance
over downtown Chicago.
A perfect painting to ponder on a rainy day in Chicago: Gustave
Caillebotte’s “Paris Street, Rainy Day.” He painted it in oil on canvas in
1877, and you will find it at the Art Institute of Chicago.
1. Gustave Caillebotte’s serenely soggy oil on canvas from 1877, “Paris Street, Rainy Day.”
2. Claude Monet’s ever timely “Arrival of the Normandy Train, Gare Saint-Lazare,” which he painted
in oil on canvas in 1877.
3. Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s 1881 oil-on-canvas
masterpiece, “Two Sisters (on the Terrace).”
Oh, to be sure, we took in Monet’s haunting “Haystacks,” and we looked back with sympathetic gratitude at an impoverished Vincent van Gogh. The
one-eared artist stared enigmatically back at us
from his “Self Portrait” which he painted with the
oils his brother Theo bought for him in 1887.
The skyline appears to grow right out of the
Curie Garden in Millennium Park.
THE
July 22, 2010
Page 45
The BP Bridge is for people who are not in a big hurry.
A real pair of Beaners.
“Care for a promenade around Millennium Park,
Mom?”
“Absolutely.”
And so we carefully descended the Nichols Bridgeway down into the heart of Millennium Park where
we instantly became one with all the other kids-ofall-ages who were ogling the Bean, both inside and
out.
Everyone is a kid again inside the Bean.
The Bean, we decided, brings out the best in everyone, and it would be the best possible site for a
summit between any and all warring parties. Sworn
enemies would soon become friends for life after
posing for pictures inside and outside the Bean.
After posing for our own “Beaner” shots, we toured
the nearby Curie Garden where the good gardeners
had a heavenly host of flowers growing in the fertile
heart of the city. We were not entirely sure what
was blooming that day, but we knew enough to ask
next time.
Having consumed more calories at terzo Piano
than necessary, I knew it was time to burn some off
before they settled around my already ample middle and thus force me to go out buy yet another belt.
And so I asked Mom if she was up for going up yet
another bridge, and she said, “Sure.”
We thus ascended the delightfully serpentine BP
Bridge, and Mom remarked as we went that the
wooden planking reminded her of the Boardwalk in
Atlantic City.
I said, “This is a bridge for people who are not in
a big hurry.”
And we certainly did not have to hurry to see the
floral splendor awaiting us on the other side of Columbus Drive in Grant Park. I heard and then saw
a red-winged blackbird and told Mom that was not
a bird one expected to find in downtown Chicago.
We thanked Mayor Richard M. Daley and his green
thumb for that, and then we topped the red-wings
by spotting a nesting pair of brown thrashers.
Life doesn’t get better than that in the Windy
City.
And so, as the sun lighted our path, we crossed
back to Millennium Park on the BP Bridge and then
ascended back into the Art Institute on a Nichols
Bridgeway that appeared to be leading us to heaven
itself. We used the facilities in the Art Institute and
then made our way in air-conditioned comfort to the
Michigan Avenue entrance.
Down the ramp, down the avenue, and down the
elevator, and it was home again, home again without ever having to cross an actual street.
Life is good, rain or shine!
Home again, home again by the way of the Nichols Bridgeway. Thanks
to that span and the BP Bridge, we never had to brave an actual streetcrossing all day. How cool is that?

The Blind Contessa’s New Machine by Carey Wallace
While it’s true that necessity is
usually the mother of invention...
this tale just might convince you
that it can also be love.
“On the day Contessa Carolina
Fantoni was married, only one other
living person knew that she was going blind, and he was not her groom.”
We’re in early 19th century Italy
for this novel that is small in size but
large in heart. It is poetry and prose
all neatly wrapped up in a story that
is as lyrical as any fairy tale...
Carolina’s father had dammed
a length of the river that flowed
through their property for his wife,
but she never liked it, so he fixed it up for his daughter instead. Carolina loved the lake and eventually,
her father built a one-room cottage by the lake so
Carolina could take refuge from the weather.
As she grew older, Carolina had a visitor to her
little sanctuary--her neighbor, Turri. He was some
ten years older than her and was a bit of an eccentric, full of fanciful flights of imagination and an inventor of all sorts of strange and wonderful things.
Carolina loved talking to him and observing his
scientific discoveries. They were as brother and sister, but without the bickering. As the years went by,
as they must, Carolina turned into a young woman
of some beauty. The young men started noticing her
at social events, and even Turri began to look at her
differently.
Alas, it was Turri’s fate to become engaged, but
not so easily and not really to one of his choice...
“Turri, when the time to marry came, had been
widely considered an unsuitable husband by the
girls his age. For years, he had tormented them with
his questions, pranks, and inventions.”
So, Turri’s parents found him Sophia Conti:
“Completely unsuited for each other, Turri and Sophia were also each other’s only hope for a suitable
match within their small circle.” So, they married
and eventually have a son, but this doesn’t keep
Turri from Carolina...
Finding it harder and harder to hide their feelings for each other at county parties and dances,
the two continue to meet at the small lake cottage,
the two social misfits reveling in each other’s discoveries and imagination as Carolina’s sight slowly
deteriorates to total blindness. But she discovers a
whole new world in her dreams in which she can see
and take flight to new heights of her imagination.
Only with Turri does she share this world and he
becomes determined to find a way to help Carolina
July 22, 2010
in her sightless daytime hours. Since
correspondence between women of
means is so important at this time,
how about a machine that would allow her to continue that correspondence?
The Blind Contessa’s New Machine is based on the true story of
a nineteenth century inventor who
made an interesting wooden machine
to help a young woman through the
dark days of her blindness. Carey
Wallace’s imagination has conceived
the most picturesque story from this
one incident and made it come alive
for the reader, but in a dreamy, surreal way. Was I reading fact, fiction
or fantasy? It all blends so well together that it really doesn’t matter...
Carey Wallace now lives in Brooklyn, New York
but is originally from a small town in Michigan and
has worked at a variety of jobs that include waitress,
art studio manager, private biographer and lady’s
maid to an automotive heiress. She even founded
a retreat called The Hillbilly Underground which
draws international artists to rural Michigan. This
all just goes to show that Carey, like all of us, has a
deep well of talent that lies within--we just have to
tap that talent and see which way it takes us...
Publisher’s Weekly said this is “a work of surprising insight, humor and heart.”
Author Karen Harper said “Reading The Blind
Contessa’s New Machine is like opening a treasure
box from which spills a beautifully embellished
fairy tale.”
