Evansville Business

Court Material

From the attorneys to the witnesses, there are several important players in court cases. But one critical person often is overlooked — the courtroom reporter. Lara Goldey, owner of Farris Reporting, 2514 Waterbridge Way, has chronicled depositions and arbitrations for local attorneys for more than 30 years. An Evansville native and North High School graduate, she says her job as a freelance court reporter is about more than pushing buttons.

Building Evansville

For Their Service

Gone are the tables for four, lined with linen. So are the carafes of wine. No longer can you savor the waft of veal saltimbocca or shrimp diablo.

Business Front

On the Right Path

Ben Trockman doesn’t believe things happen for a reason. The 26-year-old Evansville native says life happens; what’s important is what you choose to do after the unthinkable occurs.

The Good, The Bad, The Old

The Good A friend recently remarked to me that it must be nice to have a “forum” available to write about whatever I choose or to help direct editorial content by assigning stories based often on what I hope others will find as interesting as I do.

Answering the Call

Although Evansville natives John and Whitney Spinks didn’t win HGTV’s “Flipping the Block,” which aired last summer, their victories since have been abundant.

Electric Evolution

Attorney Neil Chapman says it is one of the best investments he ever made. Scott Mohler, owner of Mohler Technology, Inc. in Boonville, Indiana, calls it the perfect experience. Both have driven many sports cars but neither believes anything beats a Tesla.

Comfort Art

With the age of digital photography making it easier for us to capture moments of our families and loved ones, it may seem like the days of painted portraits are behind us. However, one local business is thriving on creating such works of art for its customers.

Generosity Appreciated

In the 2011 February/March issue of Evansville Business, Mark Schroeder, a fifth-generation Dubois County native who serves as chairman and CEO of German American, said local talent is vital to the bank’s operations. Because of this, he says supporting the community is engrained in the company’s DNA. In July, the organization announced a $100,000 unrestricted donation to 10 community foundations throughout Southern Indiana, meaning the funds could be used however those groups deem necessary.

Organized Baseball

Sometimes all it takes for an organization to achieve greatness is the perfect facility. The University of Evansville’s baseball team experienced success in 2014 but lacked the right space for consistent results. The Purple Aces won the Missouri Valley Conference regular-season championship in the 2014 season and saw a top 10 selection in the 2014 Major League Baseball Draft in Kyle Freeland. It was the perfect time to “strike while the iron was hot,” says Head Coach Wes Carroll.

Haus Party

Few business owners trace their company beginnings to a party. The Bauerhaus first was used more than 135 years ago as a venue for church summer socials, known then as Bauer’s Grove. Today, the historic property has defined its place in Southern Indiana by serving parties and celebrations.

Safe and Secure

When families come to Lampion Center, it’s often on the day they would consider the worst of their lives. Their child may have been sexually molested or abused — one in 10 children nationwide are sexually abused before their 18th birthday. Someone may have had an addiction problem or undergone trauma, and the family sought the nonprofit counseling agency for help.
