What do Eagles, Knoxville, Tennessee, and a Solar Cell fueling a Solar Proto-type have in common?  They involve the “Neon Gummi Bears” team from Busco  attending the Destination ImagiNation Global Finals held at the University of Tennessee from Wednesday, May 23 through Saturday, May 26.
The Busco DI team was one of 30 teams sent to Globals from Indiana to compete this year. There were 1275 teams present from DI programs in 45 states and 22 countries around the globe.  Over 18000 team members, coaches, parents, appraisers and DI officials attended Global 2012 competition and activities.
The “Neon Gummi Bears” team members are: Avery Dirr, Rachel Jones, Jenna Shambaugh, Caitie Eakins, Robby Pope, and Brandi Herron. The team was coached by Rachele Shambaugh and Julie Mast. Dena Pope became the assistant coach for Global attendance. Rob Pope drove a box truck down to Tennessee filled with the props for the team to use during their competition. Val Eakins, Caitie’s mom, drove the van full of the team, coaches, and Valerie Pope, a sister supporter.
The team was housed at the Airport Hilton near the UT campus. At the first meal, the Busco team befriended an elementary level team from Columbia – they became their “BUDDY” team. It was so fun to make a connection of this level with an international DI team. Before leaving Globals they shared pins, t- shirts, hats and their hearts with their new Columbian friends.
Year 2012 marks their eighth consecutive year to have Busco teams attend Global competitions, but they need to discuss their “firsts” ...from this Global year! It was the first time a team at Globals won a Renaissance Award at the Global level. It was the first time they had ever skyped the Busco end of the year

Heart attack victims at the Churubusco Park stand a better chance for survival now that Smith Township has provided the park with two new AED’s (Automated External Defibrillators).
Initially placed in Diamond 2 and Diamond 4 buildings, these defibrillators are portable and can be taken anywhere in the park when needed.
According to Patty Amber, Smith Township Trustee, “My years of service with EMS have shown me that in the event of a cardiac arrest, besides CPR, an AED is the most important tool a responder can have. Now that many people have been trained in the use of AED’s, the chance for survival is even better.”
She went on to say that “the AED’s purchased by the Township are designed to integrate with the cardiac care equipment on board the Whitley County EMS ambulance so making the switch when the ambulance arrives will not take precious time.” Amber also stated “the AED’s have a battery life of four years shelf time and the Churubusco Youth League has accepted the responsibility to check and maintain these units during the busy summer activities at the park. Where they stay during the “off” season has not been determined but hopefully access to them at the park will still be available.”
