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. The is an unsigned editorial masquerading as a news story. Almost everyone quoted was biased in favor of letting all illegal immigrants remain in the U.S. (Ignoring that Obama deported 3.5 million in 8 years). For some reason Obama enforcing part of the immigration laws was O.K. but Trump enforcing additional parts is terrible. I have listed to press conferences and explanations of the Homeland Security memos and I gather from them that less than 1 million will be targeted for deportation, the "dreamers" will be left alone and illegals arriving in the last two years -- especially those arriving very recently -- will be subject to deportation but after the criminals. This will not substantially affect the GDP negatively, especially as it will take place over a number of years. I personally think this is a rational approach to the illegal immigration problem. It may cause Congress to finally pass new immigration laws rationalizing the whole immigration situation.

  2. Mr. Straw, I hope you prevail in the fight. Please show us fellow American's that there is a way to fight the corrupted justice system and make them an example that you and others will not be treated unfairly. I hope you the best and good luck....

  3. @ President Snow - Nah, why try to fix something that ain't broken??? You do make an excellent point. I am sure some Mickey or Minnie Mouse will take Ruckers seat, I wonder how his retirement planning is coming along???

  4. Can someone please explain why Judge Barnes, Judge Mathias and Chief Judge Vaidik thought it was OK to re weigh the evidence blatantly knowing that by doing so was against the rules and went ahead and voted in favor of the father? I would love to ask them WHY??? I would also like to ask the three Supreme Justices why they thought it was OK too.

  5. How nice, on the day of my car accident on the way to work at the Indiana Supreme Court. Unlike the others, I did not steal any money or do ANYTHING unethical whatsoever. I am suing the Indiana Supreme Court and appealed the failure of the district court in SDIN to protect me. I am suing the federal judge because she failed to protect me and her abandonment of jurisdiction leaves her open to lawsuits because she stripped herself of immunity. I am a candidate for Indiana Supreme Court justice, and they imposed just enough sanction so that I am made ineligible. I am asking the 7th Circuit to remove all of them and appoint me as the new Chief Justice of Indiana. That's what they get for dishonoring my sacrifice and and violating the ADA in about 50 different ways.
