Eldridge's ATA Martial Arts


The subject is bullying - - every American can look back on their school days and recall either being a bully, being bullied, or certainly observing someone being bullied. During the past several years bullying has become an epidemic in this country. So much so, that 1 out of every 3 students are becoming victims daily. Bullying is more common among elementary and middle school children. Research shows that bullying is seldom outgrown, it is simply redirected. This means that even as adults the tendency continues, whether it is acted upon or not. Approximately 60 percent of the boys identified as bullies in middle school will commit at least one crime by the time they reach the age of 24.

Inn at Aberdeen, LTD


The Inn was developed in the 1850s, the home occupied by the Ritter family from New York and completely remodeled and enlarged in 1995.  Besides the original dairy farm and apple orchard, the property was also later known as Timberlake Farms, where Cutting Quarter Horses were bred.  Stories also link the home to the Underground Railroad.

The Inn was the first structure in the new community of Aberdeen, which is now surrounded by the Course at Aberdeen. It received the Valparaiso Community Improvement Award in 1996 and is depicted in a Mitch Markovitz South Shore Series poster.
