Davis fund donates to DeKalb Outdoor Theater AUBURN — The Kelso and Margaret Davis Community Fund recently made a grant to the DeKalb Outdoor Theater. “This grant is in support of the DeKalb Outdoor Theater’s contribution to the arts in DeKalb County and the surrounding area,” said Sherri Sible, daughter of the late Kelso and Margaret Davis. The Kelso and Margaret Davis Community Fund was created by sisters Diane Manon, Sherri Sible and Loraine Hartranft to honor the memory of their parents. Kelso and Margaret Davis left a photographic legacy of Auburn and DeKalb County.
Their daughters have created an additional legacy that honors their service to the community. The family invites others who wish to honor their parents’ memory to make gifts to the Community Foundation DeKalb County for the Kelso and Margaret Davis Community Fund, which supports projects for the arts, beautification, and general community needs. “It is through contributions like this that the DeKalb Outdoor Theater is able to present quality entertainment each season along with covering operating expenses,” said John Chalmers, DeKalb Outdoor Theater Board
president. The DeKalb Outdoor Theater is preparing for the start of its sixth season. Plans for the 2014 event schedule include traditional favorites such as the Fort Wayne Philharmonic Orchestra, Spike and The Bulldogs, Choice Band and the Auburn Community Band. Contributions to the DeKalb Outdoor Theater are tax-deductible and can be made to the Community Foundation DeKalb County designated for the DeKalb Outdoor Theater. For more information, see the DeKalb Outdoor Theater website, dekalboutdoortheater.org
Sherri Sible left, and Diane Manon present a grant from the Kelso and Margaret Davis Community Fund to the DeKalb Outdoor Theater. Accepting is John Chalmers, president of the theater’s board.

Davis earns Junior All-State honor Junior LB led team with 103 tackles this season By Phil Friend email@example.com GARRETT — Garrett junior linebacker Bo Davis was surprised when he found out that he was selected to the Indiana Football Coaches Association Class 3A Junior All-State squad. But it was certainly a good surprise. “I didn’t really expect that at all,” Davis said. “I was pretty happy. It’s a pretty big deal.” But the soft-spoken Davis, who is the middle linebacker in the
Railroaders’ 4-3 scheme, is quick to deflect the reasons for his success to his teammates that helped him finish with 103 tackles this season. “The linemen take out the blocks and I’m supposed to do my job. I wouldn’t really say that I’m the leader, position-wise,” Davis said. The IFCA selections were announced Monday morning. Davis was one of 12 juniors in the state in Class 3A to earn the distinction on defense. Davis finished
with four tackles for loss, one fumble recovery, three interceptions and two pass deflections. Davis had a three-game stretch against Bluffton, Woodlan and South Adams where he had 15, 16 and 17 tackles, respectively. Davis was named the team’s Defensive Most Valuable Player for the second consecutive year. “He’s the guy who takes the signals. He’s the first guy we talk to from the sideline. He’s the first guy involved in the strategy,” said Garrett coach Chris DePew. “Most things in this kind of defense are created to set that middle linebacker up and make
Davis plays. And Bo does, he makes them.” Davis was also a starting running back for the Railroaders this year,

teammates.” Davis was a second-year starter at linebacker, and was also the team’s captain this past season. Garrett finished the season with a 4-6 record, but the campaign ended with two thrilling matchups against Heritage, both of which ended with difficult Railroader losses. But Davis is optimistic for what the team can do next season. “Our first loss to Heritage, we had a 21-point lead and it’s just the inexperience,” Davis said. “In the sectional we were neck-andneck the whole time. But those tough losses, they hurt a lot and motivate us for next year.”

Davis said his favorite game of the season was a 34-0 win over DeKalb, in which he had 13 tackles, an interception, and a rushing and receiving touchdown. “When your talented kids are your hardest workers, you have a special player and that’s what he is,” DePew said. “He’s a kid that won’t miss a workout, won’t miss a meeting and never would miss a practice.
