Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Sunday, March 20, 1988 Page 13 Movie On Woman, Son's Killer Planned INDIANAPOLIS <AP) - A Gary woman and the man convicted of killing her son are working with a California production company on a movie about their relationship. The television movie, unof- fically titled "Mother's Love," would portray the events surrounding Martha Henry's forgiveness of Edward L. Henderson, who was convicted of killing her son, Calvin Jones, in a 1973 Gary shooting. Mrs. Henry, 58, pleaded with the Indiana Parole Board for clemency, saying Henderson filled a void in her life left by the death of her son. Gov. Robert D. Orr granted clemency in mid-February. Henderson, 40, who was serving a life sentence at Indiana State Prison at Michigan City, has been transfered to the nearby Westville Work Release Center, correction officials said. Harmony Gold decided to work on the project a few months ago after director of development Joan Robbins heard about the case. She contacted both Henderson and Henry. "I thought it was a very- interesting story," Robbins said. "I thought it was fascinating that the mother became his champion. She was the one who helped fight to get him out of prison." She said her company is looking to create a two-hour television movie with a network, but actual production is not guaranteed since it is in the planning stages. Mrs. Henry said she and Henderson will each get a per- centage, and will not have any say in the final product. "I see so much of this happening where people need to find out about love and forgiveness and they'll be able to see what forgiveness means," she said of the movie. Henderson, who said he is grateful not only for Mrs. Henry's fight for his clemency, but also for the way she changed his life, hopes the rnovie would act as a lesson to others. "I pray it will be some kind of deterrent to let one know what one would have to go through as far as the judicial system," he said. He found the years of incarceration extremely difficult, he said, adding he believes he was not given enough freedom to speak for himself. Robbins said his reaction was positive when he heard about the project. "Edward Henderson feels there is a story to be told. His story. And we're going to tell it," she said. Mrs. Henry has said her forgiveness stems from a deep religious belief that the shooting was a test of her faith in God, which she had earlier abandoned when another son died in 1968. After renewing her faith, she said of a premonition: "He said, 'I'm going to see if you can't keep your word. You're going through death again." She said she believes Henderson accidently hit her son while firing warning shots in the dark toward another man that had been harrassing him. Falls Of The Ohio Park Newest state park located in Southern Indiana JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (AP) — In a setting near the Falls of the Ohio, where John James Audubon once sat and sketched more than 200 birds, vacationers may soon be able to study not only wild birds, but ancient fossils in Indiana's newest park. Gov. Robert D. Orr signed a bill recently designating the Department of Natural Resources as the local sponsor for the Falls of the Ohio National Wildlife Conservation Area. The area is located below the McAJpine Lock and Dam complex between Clarksville and Louisville. Orr's action clears the way for the state to designate the area as part of Indiana's state park system. No water cascades over the falls these days. That ended with the construction of the massive Anderson Hotel Being Remodeled ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) Construction is set to begin Monday on a $3 million Anderson Holidome on the site of the current Holiday Inn on the city's south side. Tim Dora of the Indiana Hotel Corp., an Indianapolis hotel developer, said Thursday the renovation will more than double the size of the present facility to 27,000 square feet. It will include six new conference rooms, an indoor recreation area with a swimming pool, exercise, sauna and whirlpool facilities. The hotel will remain open throughout the renovation, which is expected to be finished by mid-October, Dora said. Use Sensible Diet When Losing Weight WASHINGTON (AP) - As summer edges over the horizon, millions of Americans are contemplating exercise programs to help get into shape after a winter spent as couch potatoes; health experts also advise watching the diet carefully. The American Dietetic Association has declared March to be National Nutrition Month, and is urging people to make good eating a personal way of life, not a dreaded prescription. "We want everyone — men, women and children of all ages — to grasp one critical message: It's never too late to start reaping the benefits of healthy food choices," the association said in a statement. Federal health officials, too, stress the importance of good diet, noting that food choices can be a major factor in having a healthy heart, avoiding cancer and in feeling well generally. To help, a variety of federal agencies have put together booklets which can be obtained from the Consumer Information Center, Pueblo, Colo., 81009. Among them are: • "Planning a Diet for a Healthy Heart," item 521T, no charge. •"Diet, Nutrition and Cancer Prevention: The Good News," item 517T, no charge. •"Diet and the Elderly," item 51.6T, no charge. •"Food Additives," item 518T, no charge. • "Nutritive Value of Foods," item 119T, $2.75. •"Some Facts and Myths About Vitamins," item 523T, no charge. •"A Word About Low Sodium Diets," item 525T, no charge. Generally, improving the diet should be done gradually, not all at once, says the Dietetic Association. Set realistic goals and try to plan a diet with as much variety of food as possible. Many very-low calorie diets can create potential problems by not supplying enough nutrition. In addition, while these semi- starvation diets may promote quick weight-loss, they don't promote a change in eating habits, so the weight is rapidly regained, the dietetic group points out. While many folks shy away from making sudden, major changes in their eating habits, the Dietetic Association says it can be simple to take small, healthful steps throughout the day. It's easy to skip breakfast in the morning rush, for example. So how about planning ahead by preparing breakfast the night before, including such foods as fruit juice, a whole-wheat bagel, yogurt or perhaps a banana. Looking For Something Special?

NOW! 324 E. Broadway 753-2311 lock and dam complex decades ago in a move to open the river to modern navigation. While the beauty of the falls may have been taken away, the construction of the dam uncovered a layer of Devonian-era fossils which have been deemed one of the best displays in this region of the country. Both the wildfowl and the fossils have long been a source of interest at the site. As the interest grew and more and more people went to the area, local naturalists became concerned over the impact of the ever- increasing flow of traffic. Large sections of fossils were being removed by collectors, and the impact of the traffic on the wildlife was uncertain. The Falls of the Ohio is well known to geologists because of the abundance and variety of fossilized corals found in the limestone. More than 600 fossils have been identified in the area, and the reef was declared a national natural landmark in 1966. Audubon, in his travels sketching the birds of North America, made more than 200 sketches of birds in the falls area. Since that time, more than 245 species of birds, including migrating waterfowl and shorebirds have been sighted in the area by naturalists. Efforts got under way more than two decades ago to create a sanctuary to protect both the fossils and wildlife. The creation of an interstate park was pursued for some time, as was a proposal for a national park. Finally, only a few years ago, the federal government agreed to designate the area a wildlife sanctuary and protect both fowl and fossils. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was called in to study the area, and preliminary reports have been returned with plans for trails to both bird and fossil watching areas below the falls. The Corps will acquire 1,404 acres of land which constitutes the fossil beds and areas inhabited by wildfowl. Orr said the bill will ensure protection of an important natural resource, and that federal involvement makes state sponsorship of the Falls of the Ohio particularly advantageous for it establishes "an important new state park with minimal capital investment and strong community support."
