“The front desk at a flea market in Salem held it for me when I called after learning they had one with Winnie the Pooh scenes. My students will love it when we return to school.” – Kristin Kleinert

“Had a lot of help, but made a lot of masks. I feel you find what works best for you. IMO everyone is different. It’s not easy, but kudos to the nurses in N95 masks for 12- hour shifts – suffocating.” –Kelly Rivard

A SIGN OF THE TIMES

On July 22, Gov. Eric Holcomb announced a statewide mask mandate to begin July 27 for everyone in Indiana age 8 or older in indoor public spaces – including transportation services and public outdoor places where social distancing of 6 feet isn’t possible.
Exceptions include those who have a medical condition that prevents them from wearing a mask, participating in strenuous physical activity or while eating or drinking.

Holcomb initially stated not wearing a face mask would be considered a Class B misdemeanor
days in jail and up to $1,000 in fines) – and stated, ““Please know that the mask police will not be patrolling Indiana streets.” – but then rescinded any criminal penalties after much criticism.

The mask mandate has been met with a variety of responses. Several elected officials, including Speaker Todd Hutson, expressed surprise while others applauded the decision.

Indiana’s Attorney General Curtis Hill issued an advisory opinion stating the governor overstepped his authority with the mandate. The opinion does not block Gov. Holcomb’s action.

Sheriffs in at least four counties publicly stated they would not enforce the mandate when Gov. Holcomb previously stated it would be a misdemeanor to not wear a mask.

In Floyd County, Dr. Thomas Harris of the Floyd County Health Department – with approval of the Floyd County Board of Health – announced a mask mandate was to begin on July 24 – three days prior to Gov. Holcomb’s mandate. In a press release, Harris wrote that masks must cover the mouth and nose in indoor areas open to the public, including transportation services; private indoor or outdoor areas where social distancing of 6 feet can’t be maintained; enclosed public spaces and places of business. Individuals who are exempt include children 2 years old or younger, people who are hearing impaired and need to remove masks or facial coverings to communicate, individuals in respiratory distress, or anyone who has been advised, in writing, by a primary care provider not to wear a mask due to health concerns.

Multiple law enforcement agencies issued statements requesting violations of the mask mandate be made to local health departments instead of calling authorities, which has since been affirmed by the governor.

Pundits from all over the country are making the rounds sharing their opinions about the mandate– for and against.

And you only need to jump on social media for a moment to find a variety of responses: Some decry the order as far too late.

Some express enthusiastic appreciation for the mandate.

There are posts that claim adherence means acceptance of personal liberties and freedom being stripped away.

There are posts filled with heartfelt pleas to others to wear masks and examples of first-person accounts with COVID.

There are status updates from people who would prefer not to wear masks but will anyway.

There are quotes from famous historical figures, professional athletes, celebrities and notable people weighing in for or against.

There are memes, made up statistics, conspiracy theories and claims the mass media is perpetuating fake news.

There are Tik Tok videos, live rants, figurative soap boxes, political cartoons and pics of kids – and kittens, puppies, dogs, cats – donning masks with statements representing all perspectives.

Regardless of where you stand, one thing is for sure: the face mask is a sign of the times – but will it define us?

DIVORCED DAD’S BOOK OFFERS GUIDELINES FOR PARENTING

As he writes in his new book, Steve Adams was an admittedly clueless father until divorce and joint custody forced him to reassess his priorities

By Conrad Jarret


Steve Adams is a successful, hard-working, just-turned-50 real estate agent, a devoted father
of two who always makes time for his children – Rachel, a graduating college senior, and Carter,
a high school junior. But it wasn’t always this way. Only 10 years ago, he was an up-and-comer who never let his family get in the way of a business
deal, a meet-and-greet, a meal or drinks with clients. His career was rising, but his home life
was descending into shambles. “I was never there for them,” he admits. “I
missed dinners and family events. My feeling was, I was providing, and that was all that should
have mattered.”
What changed for Adams? Divorce, and the ensuing settlement battles over finances and custody. And what started out – as he now admits – as a contest simply to defeat his ex-wife in court turned into a complete transformation, a look-inthe- mirror realization that he had an obligation to these two young children (they were 11 and five at the time) that exceeded putting a roof over their heads. He saw that it was what he did beneath that roof that truly mattered. It was that classic realization: “I brought those kids into the world, they didn’t ask to be born, and they certainly didn’t ask for this divorce.”

Now, he says, “Almost everything I do is with the thought of how it’s going to affect them. You
can’t go wrong if they’re your Number One priority all the time.”
Adams didn’t give up his career, nor his will to succeed in business. Rather, he readjusted
his priorities and found structure and balance in his life. “If I had a business appointment that
coincided with Carter’s basketball game, the game took precedence every time. If there was
a parent-teacher conference scheduled on a weekday business morning, that’s where I’d be
that morning — every time.”

He also reordered his domestic priorities. He developed his cooking skills, so those weekends with the kids were not full of pizza boxes and fast-food drive-throughs. “It got so that my kids noticed when they came in the door and there wasn’t something cooking in the kitchen.” And, as he resumed dating post-divorce, “If I wasn’t certain about bringing a woman home to meet my kids, I didn’t do it. It was a litmus test, and most of those relationships failed the test.” Priorities. Structure. Balance.

The effort to rearrange his life, and the lessons he learned, are discussed in detail in his new book, “Now What? A Divorced Dad’s Guide to Parenting Excellence,”
published in 2019 by Butler Books. University of Louisville head men’s basketball
coach Chris Mack said on a cover blurb: “Steve’s book is straight from the heart, on lessons he’s
learned and applied, for helping you be the best father you can be.” Best father you can be – and, as it turned out, best parent, too.

“As I developed the thoughts that went into writing the book,” Adams says, “I realized there was much about being ‘the best father you can be’ that went beyond just the community of divorced fathers. All these thoughts and recommendations and guidelines also apply to any fathers of young children, to divorced mothers and all single-parent households and, in fact, to any parent at all.”

During the course of writing his book – which is available on Amazon, at local bookstores and ButlerBooks.com – Adams talked to educators, counselors, religious leaders, family court judges and sociologists, and he says he was alarmed by some of the things he’d heard. “I talked to Aaron Striegel, the student counselor at Trinity High School,” says Adams. “He shared with me some alarming statistics about what happens to children who grow up in turbulent households
or without a father’s presence. So many of them end up doing time.”

Adams says he was even contacted by a man who runs an addiction recovery program in Nashville. “He wanted me to come talk to his group. I don’t have the specific background issues of his attendees, but he thought my message – of changing, prioritizing and goal-setting – would resonate with them.”

Finally, Adams took aim in his book at a surprising target: Facebook. “People with issues – in their marriages, in their home lives, with their children – broadcast their intimate issues because they think they’re talking to a bunch of sympathetic ‘friends.’ They’re not really your friends; most of them probably think you’re pathetic. I always say, ‘If you think they’re your friends, see which one will respond when you have a flat tire at 3 in the morning.’ Spend all that wasted social media time and effort where it will do some real good: with your kids.”

Celebrating the latest business happenings and honors

1si Honored as 2020 Statewide Chamber of Commerce of the Year One Southern Indiana (1si) received statewide recognition as the 2020 Indiana Chamber of the
Year today at the annual meeting of the Indiana Chamber Executives Association (ICEA).

“One Southern Indiana continues to perform at an exceptional level, even in the midst of 2020 national challenges,” said ICEA President Shelli Williams. “The 2020 ICEA Chamber of the Year continues to be bold in their leadership through a powerful strategic plan resulting in outstanding successes for the communities that they serve.”

1si President and CEO Wendy Dant Chesser
said, “I have never been prouder of our team. Being recognized by ICEA as the Chamber of the
Year is a great honor which is entirely due to the professionalism, dedication and enthusiasm of the entire staff. Appreciation for their hard work, especially during the COVID-19 crisis, is well deserved and I want to thank them for all they do.”

By the end of 2019, the 1si team had taken the lead in reaching 80 percent of their goal of $50 million in capital investment. The staff celebrated
an impressive 584 jobs created with new job wages of $32.26 per hour, well-above their goal of $21 per hour new job recruitment. In 2019, the staff successfully relaunched an insurance program for members, launched a YP mentorship program and reformatted roundtable groups to better serve member needs. For the first eight months of the fiscal year, this chamber was on-track. Then came COVID-19.

The organization immediately launched 1si Cares, a three-prong approach to assist businesses
in navigating the current health crisis. The first prong, 1si Connects, provides businesses the resources needed to continue business during this disruption to normalcy. The second prong, 1si Collaborates, was accomplished by staff members stepping up to work with local elected officials and foundations. This resulted in the successful funding of 123 business loan requests, totaling more than $1.2 million directly awarded
to businesses in need. The final prong, 1si Calls, offers daily Facebook Live events called “Ask an Expert,”
allowing businesses to have real time conversation for assistance during the pandemic. These videos posted to their website have been viewed more than 18,400 times since the pandemic began.

The Chamber of the Year award is given annually by ICEA to recognize excellence in the chamber of commerce leadership profession. The chamber of the year application process focuses on four core areas including leadership/governance, finance,
advocacy and programming/membership.

Award finalists were reviewed by a panel of industry
professionals from Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky and Oklahoma.
In addition to the top award, 1si received two 2020 Communication Excellence Awards for the
2019 Annual Meeting “Mission SoIN Possible” marketing campaign and the 2020 Business
Resource Guide, which is a new publication for 1si.

Joe Glover Named President of New Albany Rotary Club Indiana University Southeast Director of Athletics Joe Glover has been sworn in as the President of the Rotary Club of New Albany.

“It is a great honor to lead the Rotary Club of
New Albany. I consider it a great privilege to serve
in the same role as so many of our community’s
greatest leaders over the last 105 years,” Glover
said. “This organization has meant a lot to me since
Bill Ryall encouraged and invited me to come to
meetings and eventually become a Rotarian. My
love for the City of New Albany and my personal
dedication to service make this opportunity
special for me. I look forward to engaging with
our community and working with hundreds of
Rotarians in Southern Indiana to continue to
our goal to make the world a better place while
opening opportunities for others.”

Glover has been a member of the Rotary Club since November 2012 when a long-time mentor
and former IU Southeast Tennis Head Coach Bill Ryall sponsored his application to the club. Glover has been in charge of the club’s social media and public relations efforts previously and has helped with the annual Salvation Army Angel Tree toy drive and Rotary Community Toast and Benefit Banquet.

Glover has previously served the club as Vice-President, Secretary and as a Board Director.
The Rotary Club of New Albany was established in 1915 and enjoys a long history of serving its community through the meaningful acts of service of its members and through philanthropic giving. Rotary membership represents a cross-section of the New Albany’s business and professional men and women and is an organization committed to
peace and helping others.

The main objective of Rotary is service — in the
community, in the workplace, and throughout the world. Locally, Rotarians develop community
service projects that address many of today’s most critical issues. Rotary has focused its efforts in six areas: peace and conflict prevention/resolution,
disease prevention and treatment, water and sanitation, maternal and child health, basic
education/literacy, and economic /community development.

Glover has been Director of Athletics at IU Southeast since 2010. He currently serves as
Board President of the NAIA-Athletic Director’s Association and serves on the NAIA National
Administrative Council (NAC). He is also an active member of both the National Association
of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and the National Association of Athletic Development Directors (NAADD). Glover serves as the Secretary for the Floyd Memorial Foundation and is a member of the Knights of Columbus Cardinal Ritter Council #1221 in New Albany.
