The big chill of 2014 Area hit by foot of snow then subzero temperatures BY BOB BUTTGEN bbuttgen@kpcmedia.com

LIGONIER —Day-to-day life in the West Noble area came to a virtual standstill this week as the entire upper Midwest was hit by heavy snowfall over the weekend, followed by subzero temperatures on Monday and Tuesday. By Wednesday the temperatures rose to the teens. The weather was so extreme that nearly everyone was homebound on Monday and Tuesday except those people whose jobs were considered essential. City workers, including street, water and sewer department crews, police officers and firefighters were on duty, with the street department working around the clock to clear the streets. The storm started Saturday night and snow fell all day Sunday, making roads impassable. Ligonier received reports of seven to 12 inches snow with slightly higher levels in some spots. On Monday night and Tuesday, temperatures were recorded as low as minus 15 degrees with windchill factors making it feel like 30 and 35 below zero, according to the National Weather Service. All Ligonier city offices were closed Monday and Tuesday but reopened on Wednesday. Most businesses, including restaurants, remained closed on Monday as the both the city and Noble County declared a weather emergency. Patty Fisel offered high praise for city employees who worked through the night, from Sunday to Monday, plowing virtually every street in the city. “All of our streets are cleared,� she said Monday morning. “Our crews did an unbelievable job, working through the night.� “Ligonier has a super plowing crew to respond to a weather emergency like we are now experiencing,� she added on Tuesday. “We are fortunate to have department supervisors who work together daily, utilizing each departments equipment and expertise. So when we face emergency situations they put

Up to a foot of snow, and more in some places, fell in the West Noble area from Saturday afternoon to Monday morning. The area was then socked by a polar vortex that sent temperatures plunging to

order issued Sunday night. Owen’s Supermarket, the only full-size grocery store in Ligonier, closed at 9 p.m. Sunday but reopened at noon Monday. Store manager Chris Fought,

a member of the Ligonier City Council, said his store was waiting for deliveries of milk and bread, but they were expected to arrive by late Monday. More trucks came Wednesday morning, carrying

supplies for the store. West Noble canceled Tuesday’s school day which was to be the first day back for students following the Christmas break. Classes were also called off for Wednesday and Thursday, primarily because of road conditions. (See related story on state waiver for schools on this page.) Vickey Hochstetler, manager of the Pak-A-Sak store in downtown Ligonier, said her store was able to remain open during the entire storm. “I went in at 4:30 Sunday morning and got to go home Monday around 2 p.m.,� she said. “Thanks to my employees I had Tuesday off, but the street and water and police and fire departments. were the real heroes; they kept going. The streets in Ligonier were awesome.� Noble REMC reported one power outage on Monday night that lasted for about two hours and affected 1,150 customers in the Ligonier and Cromwell areas. Power was stored at about 11:45 p.m. Monday. The utility reported a few smaller outages this week. The forecast for the rest of the week called for temperatures in the 30s and maybe 40s today, Friday and Saturday, but more snow was expected today with rain forecast over the weekend.

ALBION — Cleanup from what some are calling the “Winter Blast� Sunday is proceeding slowly due to the sheer volume of snow, a Noble County official said Monday. “The highway department is making some progress, but there’s still a lot of work,� said Noble County Emergency Management Agency executive director Michael Newton. The National Weather Service had no final storm snowfall total available for Noble County, but did show Kendallville as having received 14 inches at 9:35 p.m. Sunday and southwest Noble County with a total of 9.8 inches at 7 p.m. Sunday. Newton said most of Noble County received about a foot

of snow during the storm, with numbers varying a bit around the county. Noble County’s Red Level 1 Warning snow advisory, restricting travel on county roads to emergency vehicles only, continued overnight, Newton said. The commissioners ordered all county office buildings closed to the public Tuesday afternoon. They met briefly Wednesday at 10 a.m. to address claims and payroll, and deal with all other items from their agenda from Monday’s canceled meeting Jan. 13. The Noble County Highway Department’s work clearing the roads has been complicated by high winds, Newton said, adding, “There’s still a lot of drifting out there.�

LIGONIER — Indiana schools that canceled classes because of weather on Monday, Jan. 6, and Tuesday, Jan. 7, won’t need to make up the lost time, according to the state department of education (DOE). George Frampton, director of the office of accreditation for the education department, confirmed Monday that state superintendent Glenda Ritz has authorized schools to apply for a one-day waiver from the required 180 days of instruction. Later in the day, Ritz’s press secretary, Daniel Altman, said the waiver will be offered to schools for Tuesday as well. “This is based on the cold and the danger to kids,� Frampton said Monday afternoon. West Noble will apply for a waiver for any days that the DOE will allow, superintendent Dr. Dennis VanDuyne said Wednesday. West Noble canceled classes on Tuesday, Wednesday and today. Officials were not sure how many more days the state may excuse school districts from having to

make up. West Noble has two make-up days built into the calendar for snow days but the waiver will allow the corporation to keep those in reserve. Many roads in the rural part of Noble County were still not passable for school buses as of Wednesday morning. “The county highway department has done a tremendous job but roads are far from ideal,� VanDuyne said. “Many places were single lanes, a few roads were not plowed at all. The intersections are still bad and all turn-a-rounds need work in order for the buses to have the room they need.� As for the state’s decision on waivers, Ritz made the decision on Sunday after consulting with her staff. Superintendents of Indiana schools were notified that a waiver was available for Monday on Sunday afternoon, via email or an automatic calling system, Frampton said. The waiver means that schools can escape the “very severe financial penalty� they would

otherwise incur by canceling one day of instruction, he said. This waiver has been used before, but rarely. “In the last 15 years, this may have been used maybe three other times,� Frampton said, adding that he believes the waiver was last used in 2007 or 2008. He said the waiver has been used in the past to allow schools to make up just part of several missed days due to weather — like having just five makeup days for eight snow days. Altman said Ritz decided just before 3 p.m. on Monday to also offer a waiver allowing Indiana school districts to cancel school on Tuesday without penalty. The waiver applies to all public and non-public schools in the state.

Weather affects sports schedules West Noble athletic events were hampered by the weather. Reports on make-up dates or postponements can be found on pages 5 or 6, or check kpcnews. com or West Noble’s page.

OBITUARIES

THE BOB REPORT

If you like this weather ... If you like this weather, then you probably like root canals, dysentery and sales pitches from life insurance agents. Sure, the snow makes for “pretty” scenes but I had my fill of “pretty” this fall with the leaves. It takes a weather disaster like this for us to better appreciate the comforts we enjoy in our lives here in the United States. We take hot water, full refrigerators, heated homes and clean drinking water for granted. At our house, it only took two hours of darkness with no power for panic buttons to be pushed. And a lot of blame came my way because I didn’t have our home prepared for a disaster. So this week, after the freeze lifted, we were shopping for more batteries and stuff; making sure our smoke detectors work, etc. But there’s only so much we can do, short of coming up with a way to heat our homes without electricity. And I am not a fan of propane space heaters like our friends up north probably have. And sure, there are probably 101 things I could do to better prepare for emergencies.

Playing cards and watching TV sure beats doing housework, though. This week brought us some of the worst winter weather we’ve seen in our 18 years at this location, but I grew up in Iowa and lived through the blizzard of 1978, which actually was worse than this week. I guess it was the combination of lots of snow and minus-20 temperatures that got me down this time. Oh well. Life in Indiana in the winter beats living in a whole lot of other countries with better weather. Thanks to everyone who did offer help to us this week. Take care, stay safe and have warm dreams.

Labor Department sues for Merry Manor employees funds WARSAW — The U.S. Department of Labor has filed a lawsuit over what it says is a bank’s improper handling of employee funds for a northeast Indiana health care chain. The lawsuit announced last month was filed in U.S. District Court to recover losses to the Miller’s Health Systems Inc. Employee Stock Ownership Plan. Miller’s Health is a Warsaw-based company that manages long-term care and assisted-living facilities, including Miller’s Merry Manor facilities in Syracuse, LaGrange and Garrett. The suit alleges that PBI Bank Inc., trustee of the plan, authorized the purchase of company stock for $40 million, an amount far in excess of the fair market value of the stock. The suit also alleges that PBI Bank approved financing for the transaction at an excessive interest rate. “Fiduciaries must act with undivided loyalty to plan participants. When it comes to (employee stock ownership plan) purchases, they must ensure that the plan receives full value for its money,” said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Employee Benefits Security Phyllis C. Borzi. The suit alleges that PBI violated the Employee Retirement Income Security Act by imprudently and disloyally approving the purchase of stock by the plan. The suit seeks to require PBI to restore all losses suffered by the plan, plus interest. The Chicago Regional Office of the department’s Employee Benefits Security Administration investigated a September 2007 stock purchase. The department concluded that, as a result of the design of the transaction and the fiduciary breaches of PBI, the stock purchase was not for the primary benefit of participants and did not promote employee ownership in Miller’s Health. It alleges PBI was responsible and liable for violations of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act. The lawsuit also seeks to remove PBI as a fiduciary and service provider of the plan and to permanently bar it from serving as a fiduciary or service provider to ERISA-covered plans in the future. At the time of the stock purchase, Miller’s Health managed 31 long-term care facilities under the name of Miller’s Merry Manor and 10 assisted living facilities under the name Miller’s Senior Living. Miller’s Health also operated Theracare Inc., an Indiana corporation.

News from the Ligonier library LIGONIER — The Ligonier Public Library is conducting its annual magazine sale. The library is located at its temporary annex location on Lincolnway South, next to the ALCO store, while construction is done on the library’s expansion project. With even less space than normal, the Ligonier Public Library needs to get rid of things fast, said program coordinator Angela Scott. They will be clearing out all the 2013 magazines to make way for the 2014 magazines that are coming. They will be sold for 10 cents each. They also have some books and CDs

that are available for purchase. All funds go towards the building fund. Stop in during the month of January to pick up some fun items.

Xbox Free Play Brrrrr…it’s cold outside. Why not visit the Ligonier library and play with the Xbox 360 on January 16 from 4-5:30 p.m.? They will have the Xbox set up in the children’s department so you have lots of fun playing games. There will be competitive tourney games as the theme this time around. Game ratings are teen and below. Anyone is welcome to try their hand at the game system.

As I sit here and look out the window of my study today, I see nothing! It’s not writer’s block but it is frost that has them completely covered. I confess: I’ve been in my pajamas since Saturday and have enjoyed almost all of it. My driveway is piled up with snow, so both my cars and my mo-ped are pretty much still shut in. Being honest, this is nothing like the storm of 1978, as I was here for that one also, and I remember State Road 5 being completely shut down for what seemed to be some time, but I don’t remember it being as cold as this. At that time, I worked for Golden’s Home Furnishings, and one thing I remember is that Jim Golden called and asked if I could get down town to the store and check everything out to see if it was OK. I bundled up from head to toe, and hiked downtown. I don’t remember the time element, but believe it took

most of a day to get there and back, as the snow was quite deep, even down the middle of the street. FROM THE We did not WINDOW have the OF MY Internet then, so STUDY information did not get around quite as rapidly Rev. John Lutton as it does today; our communication was via telephone, and in a few of our cases, by amateur radio as well. From staying close to Facebook, and reading all of the input from the many couples who are sentenced to spend several days together, with also their kids, I’m learning about people. Most of the people in our area are pretty decent people. I have concluded

that the number one dinner dish in the area is ham and beans! Apparently, many have fixed a pot of it, much like we do soup or chili, and just snack from it whenever. We started out with a pan of sloppy Joes and made both one- and two-faced sandwiches, used it as gravy, etc., until that got old. It had a very low content of ketchup, so my wife used spaghetti sauce to magically change it into something else. I’ve had my breakfast eggs fixed several different ways, and have been drinking more tea than I have coffee. Since I am diabetic, I still have to drink lots of water when I eat and take my pills. It’s been mildly disturbing to me the number of industries and business that are so anxious to start back up that they are willing for their people and their business’ to risk fines just to get things going again.

On the downside, the temperatures have been near -15, not considering the wind-chill factor. One person I know lives up a lane and has a seven-foot snow drift in the middle of it; most of our cars are blocked in, and my heart and the temperature outside both says I can’t do anything about it. I’ve laughed a lot at the local humor over this current situation. Most folks did not lose their sense of humor through all of this. The one guy I felt sorry for was my friend Jim Stephens, who wanted so badly to get to his 3 p.m. coffee break at Charger House Monday, and headed out with treats, only to discover the whole town was shut down. Sorry Jim! Will see ya by the weekend — maybe. Rev. Lutton is senior pastor at the Ligonier Church of the Nazarene. He can be reached by email at john.lutton@gmail.com.

Former Advance Leader editor recalls blizzard of ’78 My first year of married life included the Blizzard of 1978. Shimmering white everywhere, mountains of drifting snow, cars buried from view, frigid cold and everything closed … for days. To assure you that the above is not hyperbole here is some information from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration website, noaa.gov.

Blizzard of 1978 Beginning Wednesday January 25, 1978, Indiana was paralyzed by a snow storm that came to be known as the Blizzard of ‘78, the worst blizzard on record for the Hoosier state… Even experienced weather professionals, who knew what was coming, had little idea of exactly what they would face over the next few days. The storm set records still in place to this day, including the most snow in one month at

Indianapolis, 30.6 inches, and the most snow on the ground at Indianapolis, 20 inches. Many recall homes buried in snow, close calls with danger on the roadways, or even sledding from second floor windows … Doctors and emergency personnel were forced to reach people on skis and snowmobiles. The governor sent National Guard tanks onto I-65 to remove stranded semis. A snowbank stalled a seven car Amtrak train in Putnam County. Indiana Bell was forced to halt all phone traffic but emergency calls. In Franklin, the Daily Journal published on pink paper, explaining that the color would help readers find their papers in the snow. The governor declared a snow emergency for the entire state the morning of the 26th. During the afternoon of the 26th, the Indiana State Police considered all Indiana roads closed.

Seventy people perished during the storm. The first ever Blizzard GRACE Warning HOUSHOLDER for the entire state of Indiana was issued at 3:45 PM EST on January 25th. A heavy snow warning had been issued 12 hours earlier. Winds would approach 50 mph or more by midnight and continue through the 27th. Temperatures would plummet to a low of zero during the storm, with wind chills approaching -50 on the old wind chill scale. Snowfall rates of nearly one half to as much as one inch per hour were not in and of themselves remarkable, but the duration of the heavy snow was. Significant snowfall lasted

about 31 hours at Indianapolis and would be followed by continued cold and high winds. This hampered recovery and relief efforts, leaving much of Indiana crippled for days … In some areas, up to 3 feet of snow fell. The howling winds would push drifts up to as much as 20-25 feet. Visibilities would remain at or below one quarter mile for 25 hours. The storm was characterized by a relatively rare merger of two distinct weather systems. The result was a very strong area of low pressure that reached its lowest pressure over Cleveland Ohio. For Terry and me the Blizzard of ’78 began around 4:30 a.m. Jan. 25 when we received a phone call from John Peirce, editor of The News Sun, who said he would not be able to make it to work. We looked outside from our bedroom window (we live in the same house today) and all

we could see was a street light, shining dimly through swirling white. In the pitch black, we walked up to The News Sun. On the south side of Mott Street, near the intersection with Riley, an elderly women was sweeping the sidewalk in front of her home vigorously and steadily. I will never forget that image. On the last block of East Mitchell Street, about a block from The News Sun, the wind was so strong and the snow was so deep that I felt maybe I wouldn’t make it. Briefly, I was very scared. But then adrenaline kicked in, again, and I was fine. Some of our pressmen came in on snowmobiles. As we walked home that afternoon, or evening, I can’t remember, with a few newspapers “hot off the press,” Terry threw a newspaper onto the front porch of John and Julie Atz on Mitchell Street. To this day, The News

During this storm, we have opened up kpcnews. com so that access to everything is free for everyone.

great measuring stick to see where some of our wrestlers at,� said head coach Tom Marsh. “We finished 25th out of 32 as a team, and that was not bad with four empty weight classes. We had a run of injuries that kept Taylor Grim, Julio Garcia, and Cam Meyers out for the

two-day tournament. I think with those guys we would of had a great chance of cracking the top 20.� “We did get two guys back to the medal rounds and that is a pretty good deal when that happens.� Placing 6th for West Noble was Oscar Reyes and 8th was Chandler Hyndman. “They both know now what it take for them to

reach some goals they set for themselves at the beginning of the year,� Marsh added. Also making it to the round to make it to the second day was Alex DeLuna and Jesse Newman. “These guys are very much improved as the year goes on. I hope they do not sell their selves short of how far they make it,� Marsh said.

Chargers defeat Eastside, Panthers West Noble remains unbeaten; plays at Lakeland Friday night BY JEFF JONES jjones@kpcmedia.com LIGONIER — The West Noble Chargers have done a lot of things right to be 6-0 as the basketball season moves into January. Hitting the panic button in a tight game isn’t one of them. The Chargers found themselves trailing 25-24 at halftime to visiting Eastside Friday. West Noble responded by running off the first 11 points of the third quarter, and didn’t look back for a 63-43 Northeast Corner Conference win. Seniors Phil Miller, Drew Schermerhorn and Brandon Evans led the surge. Miller, who led all scorers with 24 points, hit a three from the right corner. Schermerhorn, who finished with 16, opened the third with a three-point play and added a trey to cap the run. Evans had two free throws and finished with 13. “We’ve had a couple of weeks off; the days leading up to break were kind of strange, and break was a little longer than usual,” West Noble coach Jim Best said. “We didn’t have any games over break, and it’s almost like beginning practice all over again. “I can’t say I was really shocked at the way we came out the first half,” he said. “I thought we were little bit rusty, and that’s something

we have to work on. “I just told them, ‘You’re a better basketball team than this. Let’s get control of ourselves, settle down and play some ball,’” Best said. His Chargers did the rest, taking control of what had been a tight game. The first-half pace — having good possessions and getting good shots — was to Eastside’s liking, Blazer coach Ryan Abbott said. “We wanted a possession by possession game, and we did an exceptional job in the first half of limiting their transition,” he said. “The third quarter, they got a couple of middle drives and they hit some tough shots too. “(Miller’s) a tough guard at 6-6,” Abbott said. “He can handle it, and when you can shoot it really well, that’s tough to guard, especially when you have to worry about Schermerhorn and Evans.” Schermerhorn’s three with 5:26 left in the third gave the Chargers a 35-25 lead. Just as they did to finish the first half, the Blazers had a little run late in the third, with two buckets in the lane by P.J. Dean and a three-ball by Ethan Moughler to pull within 43-39. Schermerhorn’s slash and score ended the third. Early in the fourth, Kyler Warble hit a baseline jumper, and Miller had a three-point play to push the margin back to

Win over PH puts WN in tie with Westview BRUSHY PRAIRIE — West Noble’s boys basketball team defeated Prairie Heights 59-53 in a matchup of two of the top teams in the Northeast Corner Conference Saturday night. Charger Drew Schermerhorn made a three-point play with 1 minute, 32 seconds left to break a 49-49 tie and West Noble never relinquished that lead. Schermerhorn had 25 points to lead the Chargers (7-0, 3-0 NECC). That also included a big three-point play off of his own steal with about 30 seconds left which gave his team a 56-51 lead. Phil Miller added 19 points. TOM ATZ

West Noble’s Phil Miller led his team on offense in the win over Eastside last Friday night in Ligonier. The Chargers travel to Lakeland on Friday for a boys and girls doubleheader, weather permitting. 10 at 50-40. Eastside scored only four points in the final frame. Threes by Evans and Miller and a rebound score by Brandon Moser staked West Noble to an early 8-2 lead, but Eastside took its first lead on Ryan Liechty’s score inside late in the quarter. In the second, Evans dialed long distance again for a 24-20 lead, but Eastside got a free throw from Kadis

Renier, a rebound basket by Dean and a steal and score by Dean in the final 1:30 of the half to lead 25-24 at the break. Dean led Eastside (4-4 overall, 1-2 in the NECC) with 17 points. Moughler had 11 points and Liechty finished with nine. The Chargers were 20-of-38 (53 percent) from the field, including 9-of-19 (47 percent) from beyond the arc. The Blazers were

18-of-49 (37 percent) from the field and 3-of-16 (19 percent) from three-point range. Eastside JV 37, West Noble 24 Josh Barba had seven points and Zayne Swartz added six for West Noble. Weather permitting, the boys and girls junior varsity teams will be at home tonight (Thursday) against Lakeland’s JV.

Upcoming Weather permitting, the West Noble boys and girls are set to travel to Lakeland for a varsity doubleheader this Friday night with the girls playing at 6 p.m. The girls game against Tippy Valley has been postponed to January 22.
