A Carmel law firm is collecting donations of toys, clothing, school supplies, and other items in anticipation of a Thanksgiving week trip to orphanages in Nicaragua. Jocham Harden Dimick Jackson attorneys Stephenie Jocham and Michele Jackson, and director of business development Amber Burton Small, will travel with a group of volunteers to work with children and distribute clothing, toys, and medical and school supplies. The group will also help host a baseball clinic and use the event to promote literacy.

The trip is coordinated through The Fatherless Foundation, Inc., a tax-exempt charity founded by Jackson. The law firm is accepting donations of baseball equipment; clothing for children age 1-15; school supplies; over-the-counter medications for babies and children; and hygiene items for babies and children. The firm will also accept monetary donations for the orphanages; checks should be made to The Fatherless Foundation.

Donations are being accepted through Nov. 20 and may be dropped off at the firm's office at 11450 N. Meridian St., Suite 200, Carmel. For more information, contact Small at (317) 569-0770.

  1. Heritage, what Heritage? The New Age is dawning .... an experiment in disordered liberty and social fragmentation is upon us .... "Carmel City Council approved a human rights ordinance with a 4-3 vote Monday night after hearing about two hours of divided public testimony. The ordinance bans discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, among other traits. Council members Rick Sharp, Carol Schleif, Sue Finkam and Ron Carter voted in favor of it. The three council members opposing it—Luci Snyder, Kevin Rider and Eric Seidensticker—all said they were against any form of discrimination, but had issues with the wording and possible unintended consequences of the proposal."

  2. Can anyone please tell me if anyone is appealing the law that certain sex offenders can't be on school property. How is somebody supposed to watch their children's sports games or graduations, this law needs revised such as sex offenders that are on school property must have another non-offender adult with them at all times while on school property. That they must go to the event and then leave directly afterwards. This is only going to hurt the children of the offenders and the father/ son mother/ daughter vice versa relationship. Please email me and let me know if there is a group that is appealing this for reasons other than voting and religion. Thank you.

  3. Should any attorney who argues against the abortion industry, or presents arguments based upon the Founders' concept of Higher Law, (like that marriage precedes the State) have to check in with the Judges and Lawyers Assistance Program for a mandatory mental health review? Some think so ... that could certainly cut down on cases such as this "cluttering up" the SCOTUS docket ... use JLAP to deny all uber conservative attorneys licenses and uber conservative representation will tank. If the ends justify the means, why not?

  4. Tell them sherry Mckay told you to call, they're trying to get all the people that have been wronged and held unlawfully to sign up on this class action lawsuit.
