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. Is it possible to amend an order for child support due to false paternity?

  2. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  3. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  4. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  5. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!
