(21ALIVE) — Searching for answers as to why her sister was the target of a brutal murder.

A New Haven woman spoke exclusively with 21Alive News Thursday about the pain she’s dealing with in the aftermath of a terrible crime.

Madison Carroll is trying to process so many emotions, and the idea of letting go of her anger directed at the accused killer, she says that’s going to take time as well.

30-year old Kathy Gick suffered blunt force trauma and knife wounds, before police say her body was set on fire in a rear portion of Fort Wayne’s Catholic Cemetery on Monday.

Madison Carroll says she raced home as soon as she got word of her sister’s demise.

She didn’t really know the man accused of the crime, 20-year old Quinn Albers, but she does know the two became acquainted through local agencies that serve clients with disabilities or mental health problems…

From the desk of Mayor Terry McDonald…

On November 4th, you will be asked to vote on a very important question about the future organization of our Allen County Government. Should we change from our present three County Commissioner system to one elected County Executive (Commissioner), and should the Allen County Council be reorganized from its current make up of the current four districts and three at-large to a system of nine districts giving the Allen County Council legislative authority? Some believe the change will be better for economic development and would provide for smoother operations of county government, along with better representation of the residents outside of Fort Wayne. Some do not believe the new system would improve anything, but would rather concentrate executive power into the hands of one person. This would reduce the representation we currently have with four districts and three at-large council representatives. How will this affect New Haven? Today, you and I are able to elect three Commissioners, one district council person and three at-large council persons – a total of seven people looking out for our best interest. This is a system of checks and balances. The proponents of the new system cannot show us with any real authority that efficiencies will be created or how the districts will be formed. When we went to the Allen County Council for 911 funding to upgrade our Emergency Communications Center, we were able to lobby our district representative and the three at-largemembers in order to get the four votes we needed to get back money that we have all paid into the 911 fund. In the future, if we change the system, each district person will be focused on their district, and there will be no one looking out for the entire county as we have today in the three at-large council members. Our system of three County Commissioners is not broken as they would have you to believe. A single County Executive would not be able to create more economic development and create more efficiency because the other systems of county government would not be changing. The current County Government structure works in surrounding counties within the region, so why does it need to be changed in Allen County? You have a voice in this issue. Remember to vote on November 4th

EACS board hopes to see lower bids on fuel costs

Jamie Duffy | The Journal Gazette

East Allen County Schools board members were hopeful Tuesday that lower fuel prices could result in lower annual prices the school district will pay to run its buses and other vehicles.

“Is there a point if they go down really low that you can change that?” board member Terry Jo Lightfoot asked in reference to the fuel prices the school will lock in Nov. 3 after bids are accepted next Tuesday. The board approved a resolution allowing business manager Kirby Stahly to accept bids and formalize an agreement with the winning bidder.

Stahly indicated bids for the 2015 calendar year “would be locked into that price,” no matter what happens to the cost of oil later.

Still, Stahly believes that bid prices the district will receive next week will be lower than the maximum prices allowed for 2014, set at $3.10 for unleaded gasoline and $3.42 for biodiesel fuel used for the district’s buses. “Our anticipation is that our bids will be much better than that,” Stahly said.

New Downtown RediMed in the Anthony Wayne Building

New Haven location ready for patients next week

In July, Lutheran Health Network announced that it would be adding two new RediMed urgent care clinics. The first opened its doors to patients in downtown Fort Wayne this morning.

The downtown RediMed, found on the first floor of the Anthony Wayne Building, 203 E. Berry St., includes three exam rooms and a procedure room. Radiology, lab services and lower acuity procedures will be available on-site. The downtown RediMed has led to the creation of 10 new healthcare jobs.

A second new RediMed is set to open Monday, Oct. 27, in New Haven. This location at Lutheran Health Plaza, 1302 Minnich Road, will offer urgent care and occupational medicine services. RediMed New Have has created seven full-time positions and one part-time position.

Both locations have the same hours: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., weekdays, on Saturdays and Sundays, the New Haven RediMed will be open between 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The downtown Fort Wayne RediMed will be open between 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Flu shots are available at all six RediMed urgent care clinics in northeastern Indiana.

Architecture and design services for multiple RediMed projects this year are being handled by MKM architecture + design. The general contractor is The Hagerman Group.

All RediMed clinics are staffed by physicians and mid-level providers and offer X-ray, laboratory and prescription services on-site with convenient locations and hours. Appointments are not necessary. Additional services to be offered at the clinics include fracture management, hydration management, foreign body removal and diabetes management.

Besides urgent care, RediMed provides occupational medicine through its Business Health Services arm of the organization. Business Health Services also assists employers and employees with worker compensation as well as wellness and preventative medicine.
