A ‘Treasure’ in Butler BY JEFF JONES BUTLER — Dave and Janet Ermis have a love for restoring old structures. The former Elkhart residents recently acquired the former Higley Book Store building and have opened a new business, Treasures on Oak Street, 108 W. Oak St. Janet’s brother, Daniel Hardman and his wife Lisa have started three businesses in Butler in recent years. One day, the Ermises came for a visit and fell in love with the building. They bought the building in July and began remodeling the late 1880s two-story structure. Treasures features antiques, repurposed furniture, children’s books, and Christmas items are now on display. “It’s very eclectic,” Janet Ermis said in describing the business. “We like old, historic things,” Dave Ermis explained. “We had a historic home in Elkhart. Before relocating to Butler, they operated a similar store in Elkhart, and displayed talents of

local artists. They’d like to offer space for Butler and area artists as well. “It’s lots of fun,” she said. “Maybe they don’t have a place to show their work.” The front half of the building is currently open for retail space, but another portion is slated to be finished soon. Additional ideas include offering consignment opportunities and maybe coffee and pastries. Business hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Janet has a degree in interior design, and Dave was a professional painter for 15 years. Their previous home dated to 1912. “We went to an open house one Sunday (to see it),” she explained. “We went back and looked at it. We had no plans to move, but it was a gorgeous, historic house. “When we saw this building (the Higley building), we weren’t planning to move to Butler,” Janet continued. ➤ Treasure, Page 5

BUTLER — Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel periods in Indiana and local, county, and state police are adding extra patrols to increase safety on the state’s streets and highways. “Until Dec. 1, we will have saturation patrols and DUI checkpoints as part of a comprehensive effort to curb impaired driving,” said Assistant Chief Matt Traster of the Butler City Police Department. “Anyone found to be driving impaired will be arrested. Also, occupants not using seat belts or who are not properly restrained will be cited and given a ticket. ➤ Patrols, Page 5

City officials want to meet merchants BY JEFF JONES BUTLER — City officials hope to meet with downtown merchants soon to explain the forthcoming water main replacement project. Future Butler Board of Works and City Council meetings will include engineering firms presenting plans for the Steel Dynamics force main and the water main replacement, city superintendent Ted Miller told the Board of Works Monday. He wants to meet with merchants so they have first-hand information about the project and what steps will be taken so customers can still access their businesses during construction next year. The project will replace an aging section of water main — possibly more than 100 years old — in the 100 and 200 blocks of

Project to include sidewalks, maybe new street lights South Broadway. In addition to water main replacement, sidewalks will be replaced, and there’s a chance street lights in those two blocks will be replaced as well, Miller said. The SDI force main will be connected directly to Butler’s wastewater treatment plant. Currently, the force main ties into Butler’s sewer system just west of

the downtown area. All of this work needs to be finished before the Indiana Department of Transportation comes through to mill and repave S.R. 1 (Broadway) in 2015. “It’s going to be a busy year and a half,” Miller said. The Board of Works approved a $34,850 quote from Lentz Enterprises to excavate next to one of the digester tanks at the wastewater plant so some valves can be replaced. The valves are located 14 feet underground and are located next to the tank, Miller explained. “We don’t have the equipment or the safety procedures to take something like this on,” he said. Two other contractors did not respond to requests for bids. Miller said a Lentz representative doesn’t believe the work will cost the full amount. In other business, the Board

of Works approved a $29,970 bid from The Baldus Co. of Fort Wayne for an electronic message sign in front of the Butler Fire Department. Firefighters have pledged $7,000 of their own money, Clerk-Treasurer Angela Eck said. The remaining funds will come from the Butler-Wilmington Fire Territory budget. Two other fire department requests are pending, subject to state approval for additional appropriations: • For $8,175, the department wants to replace a hydraulic motor that powers its extrication tools. The current motor is more than 20 years old; and • For $5,988, the department wants to replace the keyless entry system at the fire station and provide similar access for DeKalb EMS personnel to their quarters.

East Noble owned a 50-20 rebounding advantage and forced 26 Eastside turnovers. “I liked our hustle and I liked our defense a lot,” said second-year Knights coach DeAnn Booth. “We moved our feet well, didn’t reach a lot and did a good job blocking out. “We were pretty patient on offense for the most part,” she said. “We moved the ball around and got some shots to fall that got us rolling.” The Knights finished 34-of-73 (47 percent) from the field, including 7-of-16 (44 percent) from three-point range.

BY JEFF JONES BUTLER — Four players hit double figures, and four others had at least seven to carry the East Noble Knights to a 90-34 season-opening win over the host Eastside Blazers Saturday afternoon. Senior Tiffani Wilson led the way, connecting for 18 points, including three three-pointers. Classmates Kerri Schrock (12 points), Kourtney Edwards (12 points) and Kavan Edwards (10 points) also reached double figures. Senior Jacey Cauhorn had eight points, and senior Madison Cook, junior Jaymee Wolfe and sophomore Paige DeCamp had seven points each for the Knights (1-0). East Noble led 24-3 after one quarter and never looked back. The Knights scored at least 21 points in every quarter, making for a long day for the Lady Blazers. It was not the start to the season second-year Blazer coach Shane Conwell envisioned. “Embarrassing,” Conwell

Logan Fry brought in the most pledge money for the Filling Station Youth Center’s recent all-night Sports-A-Thon Challenge. The event raised money for United Way, which is a big supporter of the Filling Station. Fry, a fourth-grade student at Butler Elementary School and son of Duane and Traci Fry, made 56 free throws in the five-minute challenge. Fry raised $560 of the $1,325 that the Sports-A-Thon Challenge brought in for the United Way of DeKalb County. Fry won a Walmart gift card to go on a shopping spree.

The notification shall be made by telephone at the number furnished by such person and also by email if an email address has been furnished. Each bid must be for all of the Bonds and must state the rate or rates of interest therefor, not exceeding the maximum per annum interest rates hereinbefore specified. Such interest rate or rates must be in multiples of one-eighth (1/8) or one-twentieth (1/20) of one percent (1.00%). Bids specifying more than one interest rate must also specify the amount and maturities of the Bonds bearing each rate. All Bonds maturing on the same date shall bear the same rate of interest and the interest rate bid on any maturity of Bonds shall be equal to or greater than the interest rate bid on any and all prior maturities of Bonds. Subject to the provisions contained herein, the award will be made to the bidder offering the lowest interest cost, to be determined by computing the total interest on all Bonds from the date thereof to the

date of maturity and deducting therefrom the premium bid, if any, or adding thereto the amount of any discount, if any. Although not a term of sale, it is requested that each bid show the net dollar cost to final maturity and the net effective average interest rate on the entire issue. No conditional bid or bids for less than ninety-nine percent (99.0%) of the par value of the Bonds, plus accrued interest at the rate or rates named to the date of delivery, will be considered. The right is reserved to reject any and all bids. If no acceptable bid is received on the date fixed for sale of the Bonds, the sale may be continued from day to day thereafter without further advertisement for a period not to exceed thirty (30) days, but if so continued, no bid will be accepted which offers an interest cost which is equal to or higher than the best bid received at the time fixed for the sale. Each of the bids for the Bonds shall be sealed in an envelope marked “Bid for City of Butler, Indiana, Waterworks Revenue Bonds of 2013.” Each bid must be on the form approved by the City, without additions, alterations or erasures. The City reserves the right to amend any information contained in this Notice of Intent to Sell. The City also reserves the right to postpone, from time to time, the date established for the receipt of bids on the Bonds. If any date fixed for the sale is postponed, any alternative sale date will be announced at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to such alternative sale date. Bids may be submitted electronically via PARITY in accordance with this notice until the time fixed for the sale, but no bid will be received after such time.

For further information about PARITY, potential bidders may contact the Financial Advisor at the address set forth herein, or may contact i-Deal LLC at 1539 Broadway, 2nd Floor, New York, New York 10018 (phone: 212-849-5021). Upon award of the Bonds to a bidder, then such bidder must submit a certified or cashier’s check (or a wire transfer consisting of immediately available funds to the City as instructed by the City) in the amount of Thirteen Thousand Seven Hundred Fifty and 00/100 Dollars ($13,750.00) (the amount of the check or wire is hereinafter referred to as the “Deposit”) to the City not later than 3:00 p.m. (local time) on the next business day following the award by the City. In the event the bidder to whom the Bonds are awarded shall fail or refuse to comply with the provisions of the bid and this notice, such Deposit shall become the property of the City and shall be taken and considered as liquidated damages of the City on account of such failure or refusal. The checks of unsuccessful bidders will be returned immediately following the award of the Bonds. The successful bidder will be required to make payment for the Bonds in Federal Reserve or other immediately available funds and accept delivery of the Bonds within five

(5) days after being notified that the Bonds are ready for delivery, at a bank designated by the City. Any premium bid must be paid in cash at the time of delivery as a part of the purchase price for the Bonds. The Bonds will be ready for delivery within forty-five (45) days after the date on which the award is made, and if not deliverable within that period, the successful bidder will be entitled to rescind the sale and the good faith check will be returned. Any notice of rescission must be in writing. At the request of the City, the successful bidder shall furnish to the City, simultaneously with or before delivery of the Bonds, a certificate in form satisfactory to the City regarding the initial public offering price of the Bonds. In addition, the successful bidder shall inform the Financial Advisor to the City of such initial public offering price within two business days after the date of sale. The Bonds will be designated “qualified tax-exempt obligations” for purposes of Section 265(b)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”) relating to the ability of financial institutions to deduct from income for federal income tax purposes, interest expense that is allocable to carrying and acquiring tax-exempt obligations. It is anticipated that CUSIP identification numbers will be printed on the Bonds, but neither the failure to print such numbers on any Bonds nor any error with respect thereto shall constitute cause for a failure or refusal by the successful bidder to accept delivery of and pay for the Bonds. The Bonds are being issued under the provisions of the Indiana Code to provide funding for certain improvements to the City’s waterworks, together with the expenses necessarily incurred in connection therewith, including the expenses incurred in connection with the issuance of the Bonds. The City will not be obligated to pay the Bonds or the interest thereon except from the Net Revenues (as defined in the Ordinance) of the City’s waterworks on a parity basis with the Prior Bonds (defined herein), and the Bonds shall not constitute a debt for which the full faith and credit or taxing powers of the City will be pledged. The Bonds rank on a parity with the City’s Waterworks Revenue Bonds of 2006 (the “Prior Bonds”), outstanding after January 1, 2013, in the amount of $630,000, maturing in various amounts annually on January 1 in the years 2014 through 2027. At the time of delivery of the Bonds the approving opinion of Faegre Baker Daniels LLP, bond counsel, of South Bend, Indiana, as to the validity of the Bonds, together with a transcript of Bond proceedings, the printed Bonds with such legal opinion printed thereon, and closing certificates in the customary form showing no litigation, will be furnished to the successful bidder at the expense of the City. In addition, if bond counsel is unable, on the date of delivery, to render an opinion to the effect that, under existing law (1) the interest on the Bonds is excludable from gross income for federal income tax purposes and is not an item of tax preference for purposes of the federal al-

ternative minimum tax that may be imposed on individuals and s, and (2) the interest on the Bonds is exempt from taxation in the State of Indiana for all purposes except the Indiana financial institutions tax and the Indiana inheritance tax, the successful bidder shall have the right to rescind the sale, and in such event the good faith deposit will be returned. A copy of the Preliminary Official Statement prepared at the direction of the City may be obtained by request from the Financial Advisor, Crowe Horwath LLP, 10 West Market Street, Suite 2000, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204, prior to bid opening. Said Preliminary Official Statement will be in a form deemed final by the City, pursuant to Rule 15c2-12 of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Rule”). The Preliminary Official Statement when further supplemented by an addendum or addenda specifying the interest rates of the Bonds, and any other information referred to in paragraph (b)(1) of the Rule, shall constitute a “Final Official Statement” of the City with respect to the Bonds, as that term is defined in the Rule. By awarding the Bonds to any underwriter or underwriting syndicate submitting an Official Bid Form therefore, the City agrees that, no more than seven (7) business days after the date of such award, it shall provide to the senior managing underwriter of the syndicate to which the Bonds are awarded up to twenty-five (25) copies of the Official Statement at the City’s expense, any additional copies to be at the expense of the underwriting syndicate. The City designates the senior managing underwriter of the syndicate to which the Bonds are awarded as its agent for purposes of distributing copies of the Final Official Statement to each participating Underwriter.

In order to assist bidders in complying with paragraph (b)(5) of the Rule, the City will undertake, pursuant to the Ordinance and the Continuing Disclosure Agreement which shall be delivered to the successful bidder at the closing on the Bonds, to provide annual reports, certain financial information, and notices of certain events as required by Section (b)(5) of the Rule. A description of this undertaking is set forth in the Preliminary Official Statement and will also be set forth in the Final Official Statement.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Veterans Day parade should have had more viewers To the editor, I am very disappointed in the citizens of DeKalb County. My son and I attended the Veterans Day parade in Garrett on this past Saturday (Editor: Nov. 9). We only saw maybe, and I stress maybe, a dozen people lined up to watch the parade within the couple block area I could see from where we were standing.
