Spellers from Page 1 students will travel to West Lafayette. “We’re lucky we have a lot of kids” to choose from, he said. The order in which they spell is also considered. If a competitor is a bit nervous, that speller is usually put in the front of the line, while another might like being in the anchor position. “There’s no real method,” Claxton said. The team members are all pretty dedicated — but many are very busy with other activities such as jobs, chores, band, choir and sports obligations, as well, he added. They have their collective eye on the top three places at state, but just qualifying for state is a great accomplishment, Claxton said. “We want to stay with Greencastle,” one speller

said of the top scorers in their division. Six seniors are on the team, with nine members returning from last year’s state appearance. “They have done a really nice job representing the school and community,” Claxton said of the team. “If we do well Saturday, great. If we don’t, I will be just as proud. To make state is an honor. “These kids didn’t just get there, they did a lot of independent work.” Team members who spelled in the qualifying round were Matt Singleton, Julia Thorne, Alexa Davis, Alexis Doster, Megan Morris, Jackson Haynes, Alyssa Patterson, Cassie Smith, Kayla Davis and Victoria Stone. Additional team members are Jacquelyne Zahner, Chen Chen, Mikayla Laws,

Historian shares about life as a Civil War soldier AUBURN — David Dew, a 38-year United States history teacher, shared about the life of a Civil War solider Nov. 9 during the John Houlton chapter meeting of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Dew recounted the story of Joshua L. Chamberlain and how his early home life led him to excel as a citizen soldier in the Civil War. Dew Chamberlain joined the 20th Maine Regiment under the command of General Ames and from him learned military skills that led him to hold the Union line at Little Round Top in the Battle of Gettysburg. Chamberlain commanded the troops during the surrender ceremony of the Confederate Army in 1865. He ordered the Union soldiers to stand in respectful silence and salute as the Confederate soldiers turned in their arms. Chamberlain’s symbolic action was helpful in the long process of mending America back into a nation. Not only did Chamberlain distinguish himself in the military, he was a brilliant student, teaching himself Greek in order to pass the entrance exams to Bowdoin College. Planning to enter the ministry, he attended Bangor Theological Seminary, where all classes were in German. Chamberlain became fluent in

The Garrett Clipper


nine languages, including Penobscot, the language of the indigenous people of the Northeastern Woodlands in Maine. After the Civil War, he became Professor of Rhetoric and Languages at Bowdoin and later President of Bowdoin College, a position he held for twelve years. Chamberlain died in 1914, a distinguished educator, military hero, and Surveyor of the Port of Portland. Since Dew’s retirement five years ago from Northwood Middle School, he has traveled and researched a number of historic personalities, including George Washington, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Dew, who recently became a member of the Sons of the American Revolution, lives in Fort Wayne and is a frequent speaker. After refreshments, Regent Betty Bridgwater held a brief business meeting. Karen Bash read the minutes, Linda Quick gave the treasurer’s report and Mary Jane Smith presented the National Defense Report about veterans and their contributions. Daughters of the American Revolution membership is open to women over the age of 18 who are able to trace lineage to an ancestor who helped American independence. The next meeting is Christmas brunch on Dec. 14.

nobody in it,” Kruse said. Late last year an auction of German military vehicles brought in $2.95 million, leaving Kruse $400,000 short of paying what was owed. Recently, Kruse settled out of court on a 9-year-old lawsuit over a building he sold in French Lick and the net proceeds from that were $455,000. “We used that to get all the way out of debt,” Kruse said. “It’s free and clear now. I need to find a buyer or a tenant for the Granatelli Museum.” In 2012, a South Dakota car collector bought the building at auction but the buyer backed out of the deal. The Kruse Museum has rental facilities, party rooms, a library, grandstand area and theater rooms with full video and electronic ability.

AUBURN — The Kruse Museum, operated by the Dean V. Kruse Foundation Inc., has paid off its $3 million building cost, a news release said. The World War II museum paid off financing to Farmer’s State Bank of LaGrange. “We finally got the debt paid off for the Granatelli building,” Dean Kruse said Saturday night. Court records show that a sheriff’s sale of the museum property was scheduled for Oct. 25, but was canceled shortly before the sale date. The original $3 million building cost was intended to be the Andy Granatelli Racing Museum and Hall of Fame, but Granatelli backed out of the museum deal. “I was stuck with that building — payments $30,000 a month and

Lady Railroaders run over Eagles in opener Dawson scores 31 points in 69-40 win By Phil Friend GARRETT — Garrett senior Brandi Dawson sent notice to Churubusco immediately that her numbers from last season were not a fluke. The Railroader probably couldn’t have kicked off her senior campaign any better. Dawson, who led the team in scoring a season ago with more than 17 points per game, made her first six shots in Tuesday night’s season opener and finished with 31 points and 15 rebounds en route to a 69-40 win over the visiting Eagles. “To be honest, it just came naturally (Tuesday night),” Dawson said. “When I looked up at the scoreboard, I just wanted to keep going and score as many as I could. I just went with the flow. “I just felt like that the team was definitely going to work together and we were all excited for this first game. We just knew that we had to do what we had to do on the court, and we did.” Dawson also chipped in four assists, three blocks and two steals for good measure. For the game, she finished 12 of 21 from the field and 6 of 7 from the free-throw line. She scored 20 of her 31 points in the first half. “It’s been a process since her freshman year. She understands what’s going on,” said Garrett head coach Bob Lapadot. “Every time something went wrong, she just played harder. And that’s a good leader for the rest of our team to see, and they fed off her. We got the

crowd into it, and we were able to run and get some other stuff when they concentrated on Brandi.” But Dawson was far from the only contributor. Classmate Kaitlin Wisel scored nine points and also chipped in four assists — all of the latter coming in the first quarter. The two have played together for a number of years now and the rapport they’ve built on the court showed Tuesday. “We definitely give eye contact when we want to do something, and just be leaders and talk to everybody,” Dawson said. Lapadot, while impressed with Dawson’s play, was also pleased to see balance within the rest of the roster. Besides Wisel, sophomore Taylor Smith had nine points and four rebounds, junior Emily Somers hit a pair of 3-pointers for six points, and senior Rachel Stafford had six points and seven rebounds. “That’s what I’m happy about,” Lapadot said. Garrett (1-0) put the game away early, jumping out to a 16-1 lead a little more than halfway through the first quarter thanks to 13 points from Dawson. The Railroaders took a 22-5 lead into the second quarter and went on a 10-3 run to lead 32-8.

LEFT —Garrett’s Brandi Dawson scored 31 points and 15 rebounds in Tuesday’s game. Churubusco (0-1) used a 7-0 run to cut the advantage to 32-15, but Garrett responded with a 10-0 run covering the second and third quarters to lead 42-15 with 6:33 left in the third quarter. The spread would get worse. A 9-0 run — backed by six Stafford points — gave the Railroaders a 58-22 later in the period. Garrett’s biggest lead of the night came at 69-30 less than halfway through the fourth quarter following a pair of free throws by Bailey Sutton. Garrett’s defense also did the job, forcing the Eagles into 15 turnovers and 10 of 45 shooting from the field. “That’s what we wanted,” Dawson said. “We knew Monday

Coach optimistic for girls’ season By Phil Friend The Railroaders ended last season on a roll, winning 13 of their last 15 regular season games before bowing out of the sectional with a loss to Angola. Garrett, 16-7 a year ago, has Bob Lapadot at the helm for his third year as it aims for its first Class 3A sectional title. The reason for such optimism in Big Train Country is the return of their top four leading scores from last year, led by dynamic 5-10 senior Brandi Dawson (17.1 ppg, 9.2 rpg, 2.5 apg, 1.8 spg), an all-area selection last year. She’s joined two fellow all-area selections from a year ago in 5-6 senior Kaitlin Wisel (9.4 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 2.7 apg, 1.5 spg) and 6-0 sophomore Taylor Smith (9.1 ppg, 6.4

rpg). Other players returning from last year’s playing rotation are 5-5 junior Emily Somers (5.9 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 1.7 spg), 5-8 senior Rachel Stafford (1.6 ppg, 2.5 rpg), 5-3 sophomore Rachel DePew (0.5 ppg, 0.5 rpg), 5-8 junior Lyndsey Gibson and 5-8 junior Bailey Sutton. Other returnees that played varsity a season ago include 5-7 senior Alaina Creager and 5-8 junior Amanda Stump. Also listed on the varsity roster are 6-0 sophomore Ally Gottfried and three freshmen: 5-9 Drue Bodey, 5-7 Megan Newby and 5-10 Tori Baver. Look for Bodey and Newby to be immediate contributors. Garrett opened its season Tuesday against Churubusco and plays host to Lakewood Park tonight.

Police promote safety during holiday season From Staff Reports FORT WAYNE — In an effort to make the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday travel period safer, Indiana State Police will be joining approximately 250 other law enforcement agencies statewide in participating in the annual Safe Family Travel campaign, a news release said. Beginning Friday and running through Sunday, Dec. 1, the state police will be conducting high-visibility enforcement efforts including sobriety check points and saturation patrols targeting impaired drivers and unrestrained motorists. In 2012, alcohol-impaired driving in Indiana was linked to 150 fatalities (an increase from 140 fatalities in 2011) and 2,112 injuries. Alcohol-impaired collisions were fewer than 3 percent of all Indiana crashes, but accounted for 20.3 percent of Indiana’s 779 traffic fatalities in 2012.

Roughly six out of 10 fatalities in alcohol-impaired collisions were the impaired drivers from 2008 to 2012. Approximately 80 percent of serious fatal and incapacitating injuries from alcohol-impaired collisions occurring during the 2008-2012 period were suffered by impaired drivers and their passengers. To make the Thanksgiving holiday travel period safe, police are promoting these safety rules: • If you are planning to travel make sure you are well rested; a fatigued driver is a dangerous driver. • Avoid tailgating and remember the two-second rule. • Make sure everyone is buckled up. • Put down the electronic devices and drive. • Don’t drink and drive. • Move over and slow down for emergency and highway service vehicles.
