Ind. <,APi - Gene and Jenny Love had been in Salem on business and were about to return home to Indianapolis. Spurred more by curiosity than homesickness, they headed south instead, to the small but nationally known factory and shop in Corydon where they'd bought about 30 prized pieces of handmade glassware over the years. They wondered if the place was still standing, still open, still unique and still fascinating. "We wondered," Gene Love said, "if the boys had kept it going." They found the doors open, the old 1,800-degree gas furnace roaring and the constantly running kiln churning glass mixture They found a glass basket to buy and a set of goblets to order and yet another tour group oohtn^ and aahing over the meticulous process being demonstrated. ;They found "the boys" — Bart and Kerry Zimmerman -holding firm to the craftsman- snfp and legacy they'd inherited. .They found what they thought might have been lost when, a year ago, 63-year-old Joe Zimmerman was shot and killed in the factory by a former partner who then killed himself. "Once you lose something like this." Gene Love said of the shop, "it's just lost." The Loves and the many other devotees of Zimmerman Art Glass Co. had nothing to fear, Kern- and Bart Zimmerman said. "I feel lucky to be able to come in and do it," said Bart. 28. "Even if 1 didn't enjoy this — and 1 do love it — it was im- portant for me to come in and try it out of respect." Kerry, 26, said as he rounded and molded a piece of hot orange glass. "Respect for my grandfather and father." Actually. Kerry's great- grandfather made glass too. though it was his grandfather, Victor Zimmerman, who established the custom glassware fac- torv in Corvdon. New class offered at LC Lee College offers a special course this fall on how to start a new business. "Managing a New Enterprise," taught by LC instructor Bryan Morgan, helps students go from A to Z in planning the operations of a new business. Held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6:50 to 8:05 p.m., the class will not only help the students with setting up their own, real-life businesses, but students may also earn three hours of college credit while taking the class. According to Morgan, the class is a great opportunity for those who hope to someday open their own business. Topics such as income statements, inventory, merchandise displays and small business planning are covered. In fact, Morgan said. some students have finished the course and then walked to the bank with their plans in hand to begin procedures for purchasing a business of their own. Because many business owners are using computers as a vital component in the day-today routine of their operations, Morgan helps students to understand how microcomputers can help them to become successful. Students can still take advantage of late registration. Open late registration will be Aug. 31 and Sept. 1, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Late registration by approval only will continue Sept. 2 through 16. with registration hours 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays. On Saturday, Sept. 5, late registration will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information on "Managing a New Enterprise." call Morgan at 425-6420 or the LC Counseling Center at 425-6384.
