You can’t travel with so many dogs. It tends to keep you at home,” she said. There also is the worry that comes with a complicated pregnancy. Stover recalled a time when the mother dog had to be rushed to a veterinarian when a pregnancy went wrong. After an emergency Caesarean section, the dog recovered, but Stover was left with five puppies to feed every two hours around the clock. To avoid the problems associated with poor breeding, Stover offers advice to those looking for a good dog. “You have to find someone who knows what they’re doing,” she said. “You have to keep the line pure. Look at the paperwork that comes with the puppy. Ask questions. Why are they breeding puppies? Contact the veterinarian they use. That person can be a great help as you learn more about the breeder.” Stover has learned much about raising golden retrievers from her day-to-day experiences. From developing a sales contract to brushing and grooming the dogs, Stover continues to learn about the breed of dog she has grown to love. “It is very hard to get rid of them,” she said. “You become very attached.” In her sales contract, Stover has a first-right clause, which allows her to reclaim the dog should the owner decide the dog is not a good fit for its environment. Over the years, Stover estimates, five dogs have been returned to her. Turning a great puppy into an even greater adult dog takes time and energy, Stover said. A golden retriever does not always need a large open space to run in, but it does need a lot of exercise. Typically a golden retriever will weigh between 55 to 75 pounds, according to the American Kennel Club. Stimulating the dog and taking it places helps it become a warm, friendly companion. The golden retriever sign on her front door and the “wipe your paws” doormat make it obvious Stover loves what she does. As each dog stands patiently for a pat on the head or a quick “hello,” she looks forward to introducing others to the breed of dog she has grown so fond of. “They are like kids,” she said. “They are wonderful, wonderful dogs.” Over the years, Stover said she has become known as the dog lady to neighborhood children and also to those who ride her bus to school each day. First for Center Grove schools and now Greenwood, Stover has steered a bus route in Johnson County for more than 20 years. Along the way, the kids might just hear a story or two about Stover’s four-legged pals who are waiting contentedly at home for a tasty treat. Although they were very proper young dolls, they also relished fishing in Canada with us annually, in addition to enjoying the beach, church and occasional school functions. I remember one tiring day of travel when Samantha caused quite a ruckus in the Winnipeg airport. Samantha, who is 18 inches tall, began to feel rather heavy for our 6-year-old Chloe to carry carefully in her arms while also toting her small rolling suitcase. So Chloe nearly dropped her beloved doll and began dragging Samantha by one ankle. Unfortunately, another weary airline traveler ran over to aid our dear Samantha because he thought she was a real child bring mistreated by her sister. I am sorry to say goodbye to new Samantha dolls, but I welcome 2009 with all her changes. Janet Hommel Mangas, the third of seven children, grew up on the east side of Greenwood. She now resides in the Center Grove area with her husband and three daughters. • Era (CONTINUED FROM PAGE C1) • Puppy (CONTINUED FROM PAGE C1) Educator honored for national efforts to prevent hazing A n organization focused on hazing prevention and intervention has renamed its annual awards program in honor of Hank Nuwer, Franklin College associate journalism professor. Hazing preven will present the first Hank Nuwer Anti-Hazing Hero Award this year. The award will recognize five individuals for their efforts and accomplishments in standing up to the practice of hazing. Nuwer’s involvement as a social critic and journalist targeting hazing abuses began in 1978 when he wrote about the behavioral aspects of hazing in an essay for Human Behavior magazine. Nuwer has since made hazing education, prevention and intervention a significant part of his life’s work. Nuwer has written many articles and four books on hazing. A frequent commentator on television, his appearances include “Today” and CNN. Nuwer also has appeared in several documentaries and is a nationally known speaker who has lectured at more than 100 college campuses. He developed an online hazing prevention educational course for the Human Equation group. He serves on the board of and advises the Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society at Franklin College. *** Edinburgh Police Department Reserve Officer David Myers has been named the department’s Reserve Officer of the Year. The award is presented annually by the Edinburgh Deputy Marshals’ Fraternal Association to one reserve officer. Myers has been a member of the force since November 2007, has dedicated himself to fulfilling all the requirements of a reserve officer and has distinguished himself in many ways, resulting in the honor, according to a news release from the marshals’ association. Reserve officers donate their time, working as unpaid volunteers to provide protection and safety to residents of the Edinburgh area. *** The Justus Co., a locally based real estate development and apartment management company, skipped the traditional holiday gift exchange this year in lieu of a competitive canned food drive to benefit Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana. The result was more than 3,000 pounds of food donations. In past years, employees traded names and got each other token gifts, company president Walt Justus said. This year, employees decided to try something different. The office was split into two teams, and the competitive nature helped spur donations. The Justus Co. also recently received the 2008 Prodigy Award for Best Community Service Program in the Multi-Family Industry, granted by the Indiana Apartment Association. The award honors volunteerism contributed by the company and Crestwood Village residents and staff. *** A Franklin College alumnus recently was hired by Ivy Tech Community College for the newly created position of executive director of governmental affairs. J.D. Lux, who earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from Franklin, will work with the vice president for engagement to provide leadership, direction and administration of Ivy Tech’s government affairs. He will work to build relationships between legislators and the college’s administration, as well as assist Ivy Tech regional chancellors with local government, mayors and community leaders. After graduating from Franklin College, Lux went on to earn a law degree from Ohio Northern University’s Pettit College of Law. He most recently served as caucus campaign director for the Indiana House Democratic Caucus, where he oversaw management of multiple Indiana House campaigns. He is currently a practicing attorney for Lux & Lux, P.A., in Shelbyville.
