Right-Click on the control/indicator or the node in the wiring diagram and choose "Create" -> "Local Variable". This will create a node in the wiring diagram on which you can right-click and change to "Read Local" or "Write Local". You can use as many of these in your diagram as you like. Be careful with these, however, since changing their values in code can have unexpected side effects (race conditions). If you are creating a local variable from a Boolean, you cannot set the Boolean to "Latch when released"-- there are ways around this, though.
