Dollar store plans revealed 9,100-sq.ft. store proposed By Sue Carpenter GARRETT — The Garrett Plan Commission Tuesday moved forward on development plans for a proposed Dollar General Store on Garrett’s south side. Andrew Rossell, P.E. of Seven Generations Architecture & Engineering of Benton Harbor, Mich. presented information for a

proposed 9,100-square-foot retail store to be constructed on 2.16 acres on ground in the 1300 block of South Randolph St., just north of its current rented location in Garrett Plaza. Rossell said the project will include a typical sideways prototype, split-face block front with steel parapet and steel sides and rear, 30 parking spaces, drive


aisles and heavy duty pavement for semi-truck access. Plans have been submitted to the Indiana Department of Transportation for access from Randolph Street, which is S.R. 327, to extend the exit for a right turn lane, Rossell said. The project will use city water, sewer and electricity. City planner Milton Otero presented recommendations from the DeKalb County Drainage Board for the development that borders a wetland area, stipulating

as much water from the site be directed to a detention pond, and that the discharge from the pond be limited to the two-year pre-developed run off of the entire site directed to the pond. The drainage board also recommended the common council give written approval they are ready to accept the water through the city’s park and wetland area, and that the city understands this could cause additional problems in an area already prone to flooding. Rossell said plans call for

Groundbreaking set for Draft Animal Museum AUBURN — The DeKalb County Horsemen’s Association will hold a groundbreaking ceremony Sunday, Nov. 3, at 1 p.m. for a Draft Animal Museum at its farm at 5873 C.R. 427 south of Auburn The event is open to the public and will feature horsedrawn wagon rides on the farm, antique equipment displays and information about the new facility being built at the site. The DeKalb County Horsemen’s Association consists of a group of individuals who believe in the past, present and future purpose of draft animals. For more than 74 years, the association has worked to educate the general public about the usefulness of draft animals in society. The association’s work has been accomplished through public service educational programs, demonstrations, draft animal shows, funeral service assistance, 4-H club involvement and horsedrawn services for both public and private

events covering all 12 months of the calendar year. The activities are conducted by volunteer association members in and around northeast Indiana. Donations received from both public and private groups in support of the association’s goals, membership dues, and donations for services performed by volunteer members make up the funding source of the association’s activities. The association provides both monetary and services support to other not-for-profit organizations in northeast Indiana. In 2010, the association began a fundraising campaign with a goal of purchasing land and erecting a home base in the form of a Draft Animal Museum. The association said the museum will reach out to the general public and advance its mission, building an educated understanding of the true value of the draft animal in the past and in today’s fast-paced society.

DeKalb animals find loving homes By Octavia Lehman AUBURN — Some pets lived in a car, were malnourished or neglected. That was their life in DeKalb County. The DeKalb Humane Society highlighted those stories at its annual fundraiser, The Red Carpet Event, at the National Military History Center Thursday night. Guests supported the shelter by bidding to purchase a new well for $6,000 and bidding in live and silent auctions. The DeKalb Humane Society started in 1975, and 80 percent of its annual budget is provided by donors. Organizers for the Red Carpet Event sold a record 140 tickets. While guests enjoyed a catered meal, the animals who found loving homes walked the red carpet with their new owners. One animal, Wicket, a donkey, was taken from his DeKalb County home in 2011 after a neglect case. Matthew and Mary Worman of Albion adopted him nearly one year ago from Shadaroba Horse Rescue in Churubusco. “When we saw Wicket, he stood there and put his head on our daughter’s

Auburn wrote a persuasive paper to her mother, Jodi, about why she needed a dog — specifically a golden retriever. Jodi took her daughter to the shelter in March and they found Lucky, a rescued golden retriever with a broken leg. Lucky was brought to the shelter after he was found on the side of the road in the middle of winter. He had a broken leg and severe lacerations. He stayed in the office with the shelter manager, Anna Feller, because he was too big for the shelter’s kennels, Cox said. “He’s jumpy,” Jodi Cox said. “If he doesn’t know you, he will bark.” The shelter recently replaced its roof with money raised by donors, Feller said. A new play area also has been added. “Dogs are supervised in the play area,” Feller said. “We can do meet-andgreets.” The shelter has four full-time employees and five part-time employees. Each week, Feller estimates nearly 5-10 people volunteer at the shelter. “Weekends are busier, because people have more time,” Feller said.

Kruse seeks upgrades for IPFW By Dave Kurtz INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne deserves a better status and funding level, says state Sen. Dennis Kruse, R-Auburn. Kruse chairs a legislative committee studying the state’s regional university campuses. It meets for the final time Wednesday, and Kruse hopes it will endorse changes for IPFW. “IPFW at this time in history is worthy of having a unique designation, whatever the name might be,” Kruse said Monday. One possibility is declaring it a metropolitan campus, he said. A result of a new designation, IPFW might be able to offer doctoral degrees and increase its funding, Kruse said. “IPFW has never had a doctoral program,” Kruse said. As the state’s fifth-largest university campus, “I think it’s worthy,” he added. Kruse listed five possible doctoral programs for IPFW — education, health services

(possibly doctor of nursing), insurance, orthopedics industry and engineering. “If we have a unique status as a campus, maybe the funding formula could be a little bit different to enhance the funding of IPFW,” Kruse added. Kruse “It seems we should have a higher position in the funding status. IPFW’s down at the bottom almost all the time. It seems to me, we shouldn’t be.” Of the state’s 14 university campuses, IPFW traditionally ranks between 12th and 14th in funding, Kruse said. With 13,459 students this fall, IPFW is larger than Indiana State University and the University of Southern Indiana. The only larger sites are the Indiana University and Purdue University main campuses, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and Ball State University.

Kruse suggested the possibility of having Indiana University govern all of the state’s regional campuses, instead of splitting the task with Purdue, which oversees IPFW. The Fort Wayne campus tends to have an equal distribution of IU and Purdue students, he said. “If you started over in Indiana, you probably would have only one regional campus system instead of having two,” Kruse said. He also thinks Indiana University might be a stronger advocate for the Fort Wayne campus. “IPFW has 33 buildings. Purdue University has never requested one of those buildings to be built in Fort Wayne,” Kruse said. All new buildings at IPFW have come at the request of state legislators, he said. “Someday, I think it should become an independent university,” Kruse said about IPFW. “We are not pushing for independence now, but someday that may be a topic to discuss.” Kruse said he understands that many IPFW students

like the idea that their degrees are awarded by Indiana University or Purdue University. Still, he said, “I think there’s a day coming when Fort Wayne deserves its own university.” He points to the model of the University of Southern Indiana, which in 1985 became independent from Indiana State University. Kruse graduated from IPFW in 1970 and was in the second freshman class to enroll at the campus, when it had only one building. Since then, it has grown from approximately 500 students to more than 13,000. “It’s been a great asset for northeast Indiana,” he said about IPFW. Kruse said he is not sure what the rest of the legislators on his committee will decide about proposals to raise the status of IPFW. “When you get the whole group together Wednesday, it will be interesting to see what happens,” he said. “It may or may not pass, but it’s still worthy of discussion.”

Dollar Store from Page 1 system, and that the nearby Wildeson Drain is in “really bad shape and repair cost is extremely high. “The only thing to do is to advise the city the water problem is in the pond and they are doing the best they can to hold the water,” Kline said. Rossell said they have already submitted a request for a storm water discharge permit. Brinkerhoff also asked if the sides of the building could be split stone to make for a more attractive building. Commission chair Brad Stump also asked if the stone could be extended. Neighbors Ed and Patricia Kennedy asked that a vinyl privacy fence be placed between the properties instead of a proposed

board-on-board fence they view as “trashy. “We are not against them being here,” Patricia Kennedy said. But both she and her husband expressed concern that the store might drop the value of their home next door, that the paved surface would not be smooth and whether or not a trash container would be enclosed. Brinkeroff also asked if an alternative type of fence could be added to make it “more palatable.” Rossell said the builders have already committed to a price and any additional stonework or a vinyl fencing would take it above the agreed cost. “Obviously this is a major issue now that we have come this far,” Rossell said of the fencing and

stonework. He asked for conditional approval adding he would be willing to work with all parties involved. Rossell said Tuesday’s meeting was “the first shot” to reveal the plan and he had no previous dialogue with the neighbors. “I don’t think we are asking that much,” Patricia Kennedy said. “I don’t expect to give up my lifestyle” because of the lack of privacy. The commission gave its approval for the development plan with specified conditions regarding the drainage, maintenance of the detention pond and the fencing. Plans are for completion by spring, Rossell said. The measure will come before the Board of Works on Nov. 5.

Late score halts Train in sectional By Phil Friend MONROEVILLE — Friday night’s finish between Garrett and Heritage in Class 3A Sectional 27 action was nothing short of dramatic. Heritage’s Brandon Dossen scored on a 14-yard touchdown with five seconds left to give the Patriots a come-from-behind 41-38 victory over the Railroaders Friday night. The Railroaders had taken the lead with 51 seconds left on a three-yard TD run by Noah Follett. But it wasn’t enough. “I think that’s as well as this team’s played this year. If anything, I’m happy that they played their best game in their last game,” said Garrett head coach Chris DePew. “They played to win from the beginning to the end. It just wasn’t enough as it turns out. We just didn’t make plays on defense in the last 50 seconds.” The game went back-andforth for much of the night. Garrett took a 31-21 lead in the third quarter, with Karsten Cooper hauling in a 60-yard TD pass from


Follett and Bo Davis scoring on a four-yard run. But Heritage came right back with a 16-yard pass from Dosson to Conner Bleke and a Dossen two-yard TD run. Garrett’s senior quarterback, Follett, had one of the best games of his career. He completed 14 of 23 passes for 210 yards and a touchdown, and ran for 106 yards and two scores, finishing with 316 yards of total offense. “He’s a special kid. A great person, very representative of his family and his team and his school,” DePew said. “He really put the offense on his back, made all kinds of plays. He saved his best for the last game here of his career and I’m proud of him.” Davis finished with 77 yards rushing. Cooper led Garrett with 87 receiving yards while Ryan VandeZande had 52 yards and Cole Wilson 45. Wilson also had a pick-six, returning an interception 29 yards for a score. “Heritage did the things they needed to. They just made more plays than we did,” DePew said.
