Trevor Rebholz surpasses 100 career wins

Rep. Kubacki encourages Southwood grappler joins elite group in school’s history investment

State Rep. Rebecca Kubacki (R-Syracuse) is co-authoring House Bill 1008 which increases the amount of tax credits available for investment in a qualified Indiana business from $500,000 to $1 million. This venture capitalist tax credit improves the accessibility of funds for fast growing Indiana companies by providing individual and corporate investors additional incentives. “Venture capitalists play a pivotal role in boosting our economy and for job creation. We must continue to find creative ways to foster economic development in Indiana spurring continual growth,” Said Rep. Kubacki. Rep. Kubacki’s bill also suspends the application fee for two years – a fee that the business must pay to become a qualified Indiana business. Certification to be a qualified Indiana business is at the discretion of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation based on factors such as the potential to: create jobs, (continued on page 5)

by Shaun Tilghman On Jan. 15, Southwood senior Trevor Rebholz became the fifth wrestler in the school’s history to record his 100th win. Rebholz reached the milestone after picking up his second win of the day in the second round of the Rochester Super-8 Duals. He finished 5-0 with three pins to win his 130-pound weight class, bringing his season record to 24-3 and his career record to 103-35. Rebholz, a Wabash native, began wrestling in first grade as part of club wrestling at Southwood. He started his high school career at 103 pounds before bumping up for his sophomore year and then again for his junior year. “One of the things with Trevor is that he’s been consistent,” said Southwood wrestling coach Leroy Striker, “he’s been consistently strong and he’s been healthy along the way. In our sport you don’t have a whole lot of opportunities to wrestle tons of matches so getting that 100th win is okay as long as you can be successful along the way. If you don’t wrestle one of the years – for example if you don’t come in as a freshman and be competitive – you’ll never get your 100th win.

On Jan. 15, the Southwood senior reached a career milestone with his 100th win, which made him only the fifth in school history to achieve the feat. (photo by Shaun Tilghman) “You also have to be able to advance in the State Tournament (sectional, regional, semi-state), which he has been able to do because of his hard work. As a freshman he wrestled 103, then he was up to 112, and he’s been 130 the last two years; he’s grown along the way and stayed competitive due to his strong work ethic.” Rebholz added, “The reason I bumped up was because of lifting and exercising – I got a lot stronger. When I went from 112 to 130 it was a different type of wrestling because they’re so much stronger than what the younger,

lighter kids are.” According to Rebholz, one of his goals has always been to reach 100 wins but he has had some other

goals throughout his career as well. “My freshman year I just wanted to make it to regional,” he explained. “Once I

made it to regional I wanted to make it to semi-state, which I did my sophomore year. After that my goal became to make it to

State, but I got beat in semi-state the last two years so obviously my goal this year is to make it to State.” (continued on page 5)

4 Clerk’s office announces changes

The Wabash County clerk’s office will only accept applications for passports and process marriage licenses on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Mondays and Fridays in the office can be quite hectic and chaotic, so the office as a whole decided it would be best to make this small change and still be able to serve the needs of the public. In 2010 the office averaged about four marriage licenses per week and eight passports per week.

Marriage retreat to be held Feb. 11-13 Whether your marriage is fantastic or faltering, one or 50 years, you will leave the Marriage Enrichment Retreat more connected, refreshed and full of hope. For the past 10 years the Wabash Friends Counseling Center has sponsored a Marriage Enrichment Retreat in February. “Usually we have anywhere from 50 to 80 couples join us. Nearly half of these couples are from the community. We want to help our community to keeping be a great place to raise kids, and the best way we know how is to help strengthen the marriages,” said Scott Makin, director of the Wabash Friends C o u n s e l i n g Center. This year the retreat is on the weekend of Feb. 11-13. The retreat will take place at Don Hall’s Guest House in Ft. Wayne (Lima and Washington Center roads). You will enjoy the luxurious lobby with fireplace and very spacious rooms. They have an indoor pool, whirlpool and exercise room. They have high-speed Internet access. They are the 2010 Readers’ Picks Best of Award for Best Bed and Breakfast Hotel. Dr. Joe Graham will be the speaker. He is an engaging and humorous speaker. He is the director of the Warsaw Community Church Counseling Center and a licensed

psychologist with over 20 years experience in individual, premarital, marital and family counseling. Dr. Graham will help couples learn practical ideas of how to utilize personality strengths and healthy conflict resolution skills to increase opportunities for intimacy. One couple excitedly said, “It isn’t just for marriages that are having trouble. It is mainly to keep your marriage from getting that way by investing in your marriage for a weekend where you have fun growing closer. You also get to meet some other fun couples and have all these cool things to do. They really spoil you at this retreat with gift bags, door prizes, treats, great entertainment, lots of free time and massages if you want them. We keep going back.” Entertainment will provided both nights. On Saturday night there will be the Dead in the Water Mystery Theater. You’ve just boarded the Bahama Llama Mama for a holiday island cruise. When

Detective John Fieldstone mistakenly stumbles on board, the quiet cruise suddenly takes a strange turn. What happened and why? You’ll meet a cast of colorful characters, including: Captain Esau Bedderdaze, Pickles Rickles, Michelle Angelo and Tabitha Christy. You are the detective. Watch closely for clues. You will fill out a crime report at intermission. Someone in the audience will be named the “Super Sleuth of the Evening”. The rest of you will die laughing! Presented by Bower North Productions out of Ft. Wayne. On Friday night there will be several movies available: Avatar, Toy Story 3, Shrek Forever After or Inception. There also will be Wiis on hand, board games, cards, refreshments and music. Each couple receives a decorative gift bag filled with goodies; a door prize (e.g. a painting, gift cards for restaurants, gift baskets, pottery); and a treat in their room upon arrival.

There will be a professional massage therapist at the retreat all day Saturday offering 15minute chair massages or an hour Swedish massage during the free time. Randy said, “For those guys who think it will be too emotional or awkward, it really is a different kind of retreat than that. You only have to talk if you want. They leave you alone to join in at your pace or to not join in if you don’t want to. Thought this way at first, but it is so different than that. We aren’t sharing our deepest feelings in a circle. There is so much humor and craziness, there are time you think you are at Buffalo Wild Wings with a bunch of friends and their spouses.” The early registration fee holds your room reservation, includes two continental breakfasts, Friday’s “finger foods” upon arrival, Saturday’s lunch and contributes toward the speaker, meeting hall and entertainment costs. Attendees will pay for their hotel cost upon arrival.

The schedule for the weekend is as follows: Feb. 11, 3 - 7 p.m. is check-in; from 5 to 7 p.m. there will be light snacks and sandwiches available; the retreat will begin at 7 p.m. with door prizes and Dr. Joe Graham speaking for an hour; after that the movies and games will begin. On Feb. 12, Dr. Graham will speak from 9 to 11 a.m. with door prizes being given away during that time; the luncheon will be from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m.; free time is from 1 to 8:30 p.m. On Feb. 13, there is a worship/fellowship time from 10 to 11:30 a.m. where people share the funny and serious experiences that happened over the weekend.

Registrations will be taken right up to Feb. 11.

Winter storm forces cancellation of Red Cross blood drives This week’s winter storm has forced the cancellation of hundreds of American Red Cross blood drives along the eastern seaboard, causing a shortfall of more than 8,000 blood donations in the southeast and northeast corners of the country. Red Cross Blood Regions in the southeast reported that more than 6,000 blood donations could not be collected due to the storm, which paralyzed the South. In the northeast, Red Cross Blood Regions reported that nearly 2,000 blood

safe to do so.” Across Indiana, Ohio and Michigan, the Red Cross has been forced to cancel 39 blood drives this winter due to winter weather, which results in over 1,600 pints of blood they were not able to collect. If you are in an area unaffected by the storms, your donations could help meet the blood needs of those in your local community, or wherever blood is needed is most. There is a particular need for people with O-negative blood to give now. Onegative is the univer-

donations were not collected Jan. 12 as the snow was still falling. “The result of the cancellation of that many blood drives and consequently all those blood donations translates into as many as 24,000 blood products that we now do not have available for patients who may need them,” said Chris Hrouda, executive vice president of Red Cross Biomedical Services. “We are asking anyone in these areas who is eligible to give blood to please consider making an appointment to donate as soon as it is

sal blood type, which can go to any patient regardless of their blood type. O-negative blood is often used in emergency cases when doctors can’t wait to type a patient’s blood. There is also a need for people to give platelets during what is called an apheresis donation. A machine collects only your platelets and returns the rest of your blood back to you. Many patients who need platelets are undergoing chemotherapy or organ transplant and have weakened immune systems. To schedule an appointment to donate please call 1-800-RED CROSS, 1-800-733-2767, or visit for more information. There will be a blood drive, sponsored by K&M Flooring, on Jan. 21, from noon until 6 p.m., at First United Methodist Church, 110 N. Cass St., Wabash. Those that donate between Jan. 1 and 31 will be entered into a weekly region-wide drawing for a $250 Visa gift card. In addition, all donors will receive a coupon for a free donut from Dunkin’ Donuts (while supplies last).

Trevor Rebholz surpasses 100 career wins continued from front page Striker added, “I know one of his goals is to try to get to State and he wants to place in the top two at regional and semi-state to get that good shot. He’s got some tough competition to get through there but I always tell him, ‘People try to avoid you as well, when they see the name Trevor Rebholz they know they have a strong match ahead of them.’ “The big matches he’s won have been getting his placement for the semi-state level. I believe we have a fairly strong sectional and regional and our semi-state is very strong, especially where we seem to match up with our weight classes. As a whole he’s done very well in tournaments we’ve wrestled and just in getting to semi-state for two years in a row now. “With Trevor, in chasing that 100th win he has seen who came before him and he wants to be in that elite group. Now the next level for him is to be in the elite group of State qualifiers from Southwood High School, which is a small number as well. He’s only the fifth wrestler in the school’s history to reach 100 wins; his former teammate, TJ Evans, did it last year.” Rebholz added, “TJ and I have always been competitive with each other, but he really helped me and when I talked to him about it he thought it was really cool. I should probably have less losses but it’s a good record and I still think it’s pretty neat – I guess it’s just hard work paying off.” He went on to say that he doesn’t really have any goals for the individual matches he has remaining but he just wants to keep winning to try to get the third most wins in school history, which will require him to record at least seven more wins. While wrestling places a lot of focus on the efforts of individuals, in the end it is still a team sport and the team concept is a vital element of success. “When you have someone that is driven to be successful as an individual it spreads throughout the team,” Striker explained. “When other young kids come up and they see an individual that puts in the hard work, and they see the accolades that come with that, it’s something they want to work towards as well. In a lot of ways we don’t get wrapped around the numbers game here; yeah he got 100, but Trevor is a pretty humble guy. Although when it happened our team did stop and recognize his 100th win because it is one of those monumental things to reach.” Rebholz concluded, “The coaches have really helped me and my senior class has been great – we all push each other so much. We’re all competitive, and knowing that I achieved this probably makes others want to push themselves just as hard to reach an accomplishment of their own. We all do as good as we can, each of us wins and loses but I’d say we probably all put in the same amount of effort – nobody has a bigger impact than anyone else.”

Grant to be used to help save babies’ lives in Wabash County The Northeast Division of the Indiana Chapter of the March of Dimes is pleased to advance maternal and infant health in Wabash County by supporting the Tobacco Free Coalition Pregnant Women Cessation Program. This program will educate the pregnant women of the dangers of tobacco use while pregnant. The health of the mother and baby are in jeopardy while tobacco is consumed during pregnancy. Wabash County is the 10th highest county, at 29.5 percent, in the state of Indiana with pregnant women that smoke. It is higher than the state average of 17 percent. - Twenty-thirty percent of the cases of low birth weight babies can be attributable to smoking. - Women who smoke during pregnancy had more than twice the risk of delivering a low birth weight baby. - Babies with mothers who smoked during pregnancy have twice the risk of SIDS than infants of nonsmoking mothers. - Women who smoke have a higher incidence of ectopic pregnancy. - Pregnant smokers also have a 30-50 percent higher risk for miscarriage than nonsmokers. Prenatal exposure to secondhand smoke is also harmful to a

child’s mental development. Children of mothers who were exposed to secondhand smoke when pregnant have lower scores on cognitive development tests at age two, compared to children of mothers living in smoke free homes during pregnancy. Dan Gray, Wabash County Tobacco Free Coalition coordinator, added that pregnant smokers who are ready to quit should know that it’s never too late to quit smoking during pregnancy. Many pregnant women are tempted to cut down the number of cigarettes they smoke instead of quitting, but quitting entirely is the best thing a pregnant woman can do for themselves and their baby. The benefits of quitting smoking can be seen immediately. After just one day of not smoking, the baby will get more oxygen. While women experience withdrawal symptoms, these are often signs that the body is healing. They are normal, temporary, and will lessen in a couple of weeks. Quitting will increase the mother’s energy levels and help make breathing easier. In addition to awarding $30 million for biomedical research each year nationally, the March of Dimes also gives financial support to initiate communitybased projects that hold promise to help

reduce birth defects and infant mortality by addressing particular local needs. “In Wabash County a review of state and local health statistics and service gaps determined that mothers and babies would benefit from Tobacco Free Coalition Pregnant Women Cessation Program,” said Renell Leichty, Northeast Division Program Services volunteer chair. “We are pleased to support locally focused efforts to help babies be born healthy.” Wabash County Tobacco Free Coalition works diligently to educate Wabash County Hoosiers of the dangers of tobacco use and secondhand smoke. Other cessation programs are available by calling the state quit Line, 1-800-Quit-Now, Sensational Cessation classes held at the YMCA, and cessation information and resources are available from the Coalition office at 111 S. Wabash St., Wabash, 260-5637727. The Coalition is a program of Youth Service Bureau of Wabash County, supported by United Fund The March of Dimes is a national voluntary health agency whose mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.

Counties are a step closer to seeing significant savings on elections

The Association of Indiana Counties (AIC) applauds the Indiana Senate Elections Committee for passing a bill that would allow Indiana counties to adopt Vote Centers. Vote Centers are a top priority for the AIC and the Indiana County Clerks Association because Vote Centers make voting more convenient for voters and less costly for taxpayers. Senate Bill 32, which recently passed unanimously out of the Senate Elections Committee, is estimated to save counties up to 56 percent on the cost of administering elections. The bill establishes the use of Vote Centers as an option for all counties. The Vote Center Proposal allows voters to vote at any of the Vote Centers in the county. This makes voting more convenient for everyone since voters do not have to vote at a specific precinct. Full language of the introduced bill can be found at gislative/bills/2011/PDF/I N/IN0032.1.pdf. A similar bill on Vote Centers failed to pass the legislature during the 2010 session. Cass, Tippecanoe, and Wayne had been Vote Center pilot counties since 2006; this status expired Dec. 31, 2010. Expiration of Vote Center status for these counties means significant additional costs to administer elections. Heather K. Maddox, Democratic Party Chair in Tippecanoe County, testified in committee in favor of the bill. She said no matter what political party a voter represents we want as many (continued on page 7)

Agricultural economists: Farmland values soaring, for now

Much of the U.S. economy has been slow to recover from the recession. That hasn’t been true of farmland markets, which have continued to climb, a group of Purdue University agricultural economists say. Strong crop returns, very low interest rates and a growing expectation that both might continue have had a positive influence on farmland values, said Mike Boehlje, Chris Hurt and Brent Gloy. “Even while some residential and commercial real estate values have been falling, that has not been the case for farm real estate,” Boehlje said. “Instead, we’ve seen some high prices for farmland in recent months, even exceeding $10,000 an acre in some extreme cases.” Boehlje, Hurt, Gloy and fellow Purdue agricultural economist Craig Dobbins examine farmland value dynamics in their paper “Farmland Values: Current and Future Prospects.” The paper can be viewed online by going to http://www.agecon.p ndvalueswebinar.htm l and then clicking on the link. Farmland values have risen steadily since 1987 but have shot up in recent years. Between 2000 and 2010 the average price per acre of average-quality Indiana

farmland – land capable of producing an average corn yield of 155 bushels – rose from about $2,300 to just over $4,400 this past June, the economists said. Land values continued to increase even more dramatically during the last half of 2010. “These higher prices aren’t for development purposes,” Boehlje said. “Many of the land sales in the Midwest are to farmers rather than outside investors, so it’s farmers bidding against farmers. Not only is land demand strong but also supply is low as few families are willing to sell. Strong demand with limited supply makes farmland a hot commodity, both for its asset value and the income it can generate. “In addition, low interest rates are making farmland attractive, and farmland is seen as a hedge against inflation. Farmland and real assets, whether they be land or commodities, are perceived by many to have more inflation hedge potential than financial assets.” Higher crop prices play a major role in farmland values as they increase returns, Hurt said. Global demand for grain is growing, brought on by higher world incomes and the increased use of crops for biofuels. Two huge growth markets have been

corn for ethanol and soybean exports to China, Hurt said. In 2005 those two markets required 16 million acres of production. By 2010 it took 41 million acres of the two crops to meet those market demands, he said. “That’s a startling 25 million-acre increase in the demand for land,” Hurt said. “It represents about 10 percent of the U.S. crop base planted to major crops. That says we’ve had a very large increase in demand for land and is thus one of the primary contributors to surging land values on the demand side,” Crop prices also are getting an indirect boost from Federal Reserve monetary policy. Hurt said the second round of the Fed’s buying of Treasury securities through so-called “quantitative easing” is conducive to weakening the U.S. dollar and creating inflation. “The act of creating more money tends to depress the value of the dollar. That generally results in stronger commodity prices, which would then push up returns to farmland and be an added stimulant to land values,” he said. High crop returns also affect the rental rates landowners charge farmers to use their land. “Cash rents are higher as a result of the greater returns to

Counties are a step closer to seeing significant ....continued from page 6 people as possible to participate in the process. “It (Vote Centers) has increased turnout. There was an elderly woman who approached her precinct committee chair in a grocery store. She said, ‘I was able to buy my groceries, get my flu shot and vote all in the same trip,’ if that’s not convenience, I don’t know

what is,” said Maddox. Maddox said the savings that Vote Centers would achieve is also critical because local government budgets need all the help they can get right now. According to the Indiana Fiscal Policy Institute (IFPI) Tippecanoe County, for example, would save 30 percent per election with Vote Centers. IFPI figures show precinct

voting costs taxpayers in Tippecanoe County $124,650 while Vote Center elections would cost only $86,858. A full spreadsheet showing estimates for all Indiana counties is available via the following link: www.indianacounties.or g/egov/docs/1294680606 _713806.pdf. Senate Bill 32 now moves to the full Senate for a first reading.

injured. Their thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones of those who lost their lives and everyone who is affected by these horrific events. They also join in applauding the brave actions of individuals who prevented greater harm. It will likely take much time to understand the reasons and motivations behind this national tragedy. Many have pointed to mental health as an issue. It must first be emphasized that people with mental health conditions are no more likely to be violent than the rest of the population. There are science-based methods and evidence-based therapeutic practices to successfully treat persons with even the most severe mental illnesses. A very small group of individuals with a specific type of mental health symptoms are at greater risk for violence if their symptoms are untreated. At the same time,

we must recognize that the nation’s mental health system is drastically under-funded and fails to provide Americans living with mental health conditions with the effective communitybased mental health services they need. Sadly, in the current environment of strained state budgets, mental health services have been cut drastically just as demand for these critical services has risen dramatically. Wabash County is in the process of developing a Mental Health Court program to proactively assist individuals in obtaining mental health treatment,

rather than incarceration. Judge Goff, Judge McCallen, Wabash County P r o b a t i o n Department, Wabash Bowen Center and Mental Health America have been collaborating to address this issue. It is also important that, as a community, we assist persons with signs and symptoms of mental illnesses to seek treatment. Although rare, when a person becomes so ill that they are a danger to themselves or others, state laws provide a way to get them help even if they don’t believe that they need it. The best strategy,

however, is to have an accessible system of care that is easy to use. Science has not developed tools to predict reliably individuals at risk for violence, but we can reduce the small risk of violence in those with certain mental health conditions by investing in proven intensive, coordinated community-based mental health services and making certain that they can access these services. It is unknown if the mental health system failed in this situation or if there were missed opportunities or if effective treatment

Rep. Kubacki encourages youth to apply to Statehouse Page Program

State Rep. Rebecca Kubacki (R-Syracuse) is encouraging local students to apply for the Statehouse Page Program. The Indiana House of Representatives offers the chance for students between the ages of 13 and 18 to visit the Statehouse to both interact and gain firsthand experience of legislative activity. “Our Page Program is a great educational tool for students to further their knowledge of the legislative process,” said Rep. Kubacki. “It combines what students are learning in the classroom with hands-on experience. “Touring the Statehouse, seeing where the Governor works and observing floor sessions of the House, Senate and Supreme Court chambers are all exciting parts of the program that each student will have the privilege to take part in.” Pages will also get to assist Rep. Kubacki with her daily activities and duties during their visit. Pages that choose to take advantage of this opportunity will have an excused day of absence from their school. Pages will also be responsible for finding their own means of transportation both to and from the Statehouse. Availability fills up fast, so interested students are encouraged to apply as quickly as possible. Those students interested in serving as a page for the House of Representatives should go to Please have the first and second choice dates ready, and provide the student’s name, address, age, home phone number and school.

Local pork producer to address industry’s progress

Indiana pork production takes center stage on Jan. 27, at the regularly scheduled meeting of the Rotary Club of North Manchester. Jim Erickson of TDM Farms, Camden, will address the group at 12 p.m. at the Manchester College Union, located on East Street in North Manchester. Titled “The Pork Industry: More Than Just the Other White Meat,” the speech by Erickson will showcase the industry’s rural economic impact plus on-going programs to enhance the nutritional quality of pork, to protect the environment and to treat livestock humanely. Due to new technologies and management systems, U.S. pork producers have trimmed pork’s fat content 31 percent since 1983. “Like other industries facing strong competitive pressures,” Erickson remarked, “we’re working to constantly improve our ability to provide tasty, affordable and nutritious pork products in a responsible manner. I’d like to thank the North Manchester Rotary Club for giving me an opportunity to discuss how pork producers are providing quality pork products, benefiting the local economy and being responsible neighbors.” Erickson is one of more than 3,000 pork producers in Indiana. He said Indiana’s swine industry contributes more than $3 billion to the state’s economy each year.

Cloughs share Good Samaritan story Dear editor, My husband and I have been stopping at Poole’s Meat Market for many years as we travel to our lake house in North Webster from Indianapolis. We love the quality of everything they sell. In early December, we had stopped for our usual buy of meats, cheeses and salads. When we returned to our vehicle, it would not start. It was completely dead. By the way, it was very cold and snowy that day. I went back inside and asked if anyone knew of an auto service that could help us. Brad Metzger of Poole’s immediately asked what was wrong. Once he knew of our problem, he said that he could provide a jump for us. He pulled his vehicle around and after many frustrating minutes, our vehicle

started. We continued down Highway 13 and after about 1,000 yards, the vehicle completely died. We were able to get it to the side of the road and I walked through the snow back to Poole’s. Again I asked if anyone knew of a vehicle service. Brad immediately offered to tow our truck back to the Poole’s parking lot while we decided what we could do. He went against traffic on the highway to do so, but we got our truck (with our two large labs inside) back to the parking lot. Brad then determined that we probably just needed a battery. Scott Poole suggested to Brad that he take us into town to get a new battery and that is exactly what he did. Brad removed our old battery, took us to buy a

Roadshow Starts Today in Huntington! “It’s a Modern day gold rush as precious metal prices soar due to the weak economy. It’s a seller’s market.� says Archie Davis Roadshow representative.

By Jason Delong

Treasure Hunters Roadshow STAFF WRITER Roll up your sleeves and get ready to start your spring cleaning early this year. The Roadshow starts today in Huntington and is looking for anything old. Remember those matchbox cars you played with as a kid? You know the ones that have been stored away in the attic for the past 30 years. Well it’s time to dig ‘em out along with any other forgotten treasures. You might be sitting

“ Treasure Hunters Roadshow has been in over 600 cities since 2001.â€? on a small fortune and not even know it. Roadshow representative Archie Davis explains what the event is all about. “It’s a chance to sell just about anything that’s old and get a fair price. We host over 1,000 shows every year throughout the U.S. and Canada. Toys, dolls, trains, pocket watches, old advertising signs, gold jewelry, coins just about anything can be sold at the Roadshow. This event is popular because it puts money in people’s pockets. At a typical show, we will see hundreds of people during WKH ÂżYH GD\ HYHQW :H ZLOO VHH D IHZ unusual items but mostly we will see a lot of old coins, gold jewelry, and a wide variety of antiques and collectibles.

Davis says, “The Roadshow receives a fair amount of gold each day of the 5 day event.� Broken jewelry, gold coins, dental gold are all valuable items with today’s high gold prices. Archie Davis commented, “Other top categories at the Roadshow would have to be silver dollars and other coins, pocket watches, and my personal favorite, old toys.� Davis told me a story about a visitor at a recent Roadshow in Iowa. “This

elderly gentlemen walked into the show and asked if we were interested in old toys. The fellow must have been in his late seventies or early eighties. He said he kept all of the toys from his childhood and they were outside in his pickup. I walked outside and to my surprise his pickup was full of the coolest old toys I had ever seen.

He said one time he decided to play farmer in the garden and ended up digging up and ruining a fair number of vegetable plants. His folks were really mad and he said it was the longest summer he ever remembered working off the damage he had done. Back then the garden was a staple to every country family. His mom would can, jar and pickle the harvest to eat all winter. The vegetable plants were

I even think I saw him wipe a tear toward the end of that story. All ended well that day as he ended up getting over $7000.00 for his old toys. His last comment to me was, “Well, I guess it’s time to let ‘em go.� Whether you have 5 lbs. of gold or a single gold tooth, a pick up full of old toys or a single Barbie doll you should visit the Roadshow this week. It’s free, it’s fun and it could put some money in your pocket, maybe a lot of money!

LAGRO UNITED M E T H O D I S T CHURCH held the dedication for the new breezeway that connects the church fellowship hall and church sanctuary on Jan. 9. Brian Howenstine began the dedication by explaining how a vision became a reality. Many in the church had wanted the two buildings to connect sometime in the future but we all were reminded that John and Kathy Swan really were the ones who continued to spearhead this venture. A slide show presentation was given to those attending that showed the progression through the day the building project was completed. Brian reminded every-


one that each adult and child had a part in completing this project either through prayers, their feeding of workers, their work skills, assistance in many areas and overall encouragement to all involved. Doris Swan Paul gave her input on how this project was so important to John and Kathy and how she knows they would be so proud to see the finished project. Roxy Roser then went to the financial board in front of the sanctuary and removed the “Breezeway Project” since the project is now considered finished. She then acknowledged all of those who were on the initial planning committee. She also thanked all in the church for their continued pledges and participation. Pastor Rick Borgman closed the dedication with prayer. Brian then instructed all adults to line the breezeway walls on both sides. The children were then instructed that this would

be the “one and only time they would have permission to run through the breezeway as fast as they could into the fellowship hall.” The youth of the church graciously responded with excitement. A carry-in meal was held in the fellowship hall following the dedication. LAGRO GOOD OLE DAYS fair committee will meet Jan. 27, 7 p.m., in the Lagro Community Building to begin planning for the 2011 fair. Anyone is welcome to attend. If you would like to help run an event or if you have any thoughts to make this a better street fair, please feel free to come to this meeting. L A G R O C O M M U N I T Y CHURCH services for Jan. 23 will include Pastor Joel Murray’s continuing series, “In His Shoes” during the 10 a.m. worship service. Tom Burnsworth will be the greeter, and Bill Burnsworth and Betty

Murray will be the acolytes. Natasha Whitney, Barbara Marshall and Loretta Dillon will give the Christian Education mes-

sage. Bonnie Meredith will announce the hymns, and Suzan Hamilton will be the musician. Beverly and Don Campbell will be in charge of fellowship

and provide refreshments after the service. DEADLINE FOR NEWS is each Wednesday by noon. You can e-mail news and pictures to

Wabash County YMCA collects toilet paper for food pantry During the month of January, the Wabash County YMCA is challenging their members and the community to provide 2,400 rolls of toilet paper to the Winchester Senior Center Food Pantry. Toiletries, laundry detergent, soap and toilet paper are items that are always needed, but the pantry does not have good sources for them. Julie Echard, executive director of the YMCA, wanted to be of assistance to the food pantry during these hard economic times. After speaking with Bev Ferry of the Winchester Senior Center, they decided a toilet paper collection would help the food pantry the best at this time. Toilet paper can be dropped off at the front desk of the YMCA. In November, the food pantry distributed 46,791 pounds of food to 606 families, and 62 families came to the pantry for the first time for help. The pantry is operated by volunteers at the Winchester Senior

Center, and they work with Second Harvest of East Central Indiana to purchase food, generally

at an average price of 18 cents per pound. Food is provided through donations and grants.

After an unusually long wait, the Wagon Wheel Theatre, Warsaw, has received permission to announce its season opening production for summer 2011. The regional premiere of Disney’s Tarzan will kick off the summer season, June 5-15. This show is straight from Broadway and did not tour. Receiving a production at only one other regional theatre in America, The Tuacahn Center for the Arts in Ivins, Utah, the Wagon Wheel is ecstatic to provide its audiences with the Midwest’s first glimpse of this fantastic musical. Based on the 1999 animated film, the musical hosts the familiar story set to

music with a score by Pop/Rock musical legend Phil Collins. Audiences will recognize the smashhit song “You’ll Be in My Heart” as it sat at the #1 spot on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary Hit List for nineteen weeks and can still be heard on radio all across the country. Featuring some truly “high-flying” staging, the artistic staff at the Wagon Wheel has great plans for its treatment of the Tony-Award Winning Musical. Audiences should expect a show unlike anything seen at the theatre. Disney’s Tarzan will round out a season that includes three shows never-before-seen at the Wagon Wheel in Hairspray and Rodgers

and Hammerstein’s State Fair. The theatre is also bringing back three audience favorites in Big River, Lend Me a Tenor, and Always, Patsy Cline. Season tickets for the 2011 summer season are still available

and can be purchased by calling the Wagon Wheel Box Office at 574-267-8041 or toll free at 866-823-2618. Single tickets for all shows may also be purchased on the website at

Lady Norse down Lady Warriors 58-40 for first TRC win

NORTHFIELD’S SYDNEY ELTZROTH (23) gets a shot off despite pressure from North Miami’s Sammi Wood during their TRC match up on Jan. 15. Eltzroth had a game high 26 points as the Lady Norse defeated the visiting Lady Warriors 58-40. (photo by Shaun Tilghman)

by Shaun Tilghman When Northfield hosted North Miami on Jan. 15, both teams were 3-11 and 0-4 in the TRC. The Lady Norse took an early lead and put up good numbers in the second half to secure their first conference win with a 58-40 victory over the Lady Warriors. North Miami got on the board first with a three-pointer by senior Sammi Wood, but Northfield sophomore Sydney Eltzroth answered with a trey of her own. The Lady Norse took an 8-4 lead on a three-point play from freshman Sidney Reed before the Lady Warriors went on a 5-2 run cutting the lead to one point with just over a minute to play. Eltzroth would get a

basket and Morgan Peas connected on two free throws to give Northfield a 14-9 lead after the first stanza. The two teams battled back and forth in the beginning of the second quarter until Northfield was able to string together a 7-1 run sparked by another Eltzroth threepointer. North Miami held their opponents scoreless during the last half of the quarter while scoring five points of their own to make the score 23-19 heading into the break. “I am very pleased with our effort tonight,” said Northfield coach Courtney Cervanka. “We have a goal of every time we step on the court to play better than the last time;

I felt like we accomplished that tonight.” The big story in the third was Eltzroth, who nailed four treys on her way to 14 points in the quarter. “Sydney shot the ball well,” Cervanka said. “She hit four big three-pointers in the third quarter to help extend the lead. We talked to her about it being better coming from inside out, because she’ll have a higher percentage with those than coming down off the dribble. I thought she had smart shot selection tonight and we’ve got to have her step up and do those things for us.” North Miami coach Nathan Stauffer added, “[Eltzroth] had a great game. We just did not do a good job of recognizing where

she was on the floor and getting a hand in her face.” Katie Stephan scored four points in the third, while Reed had three and Alyssa Richter added two as the Lady Norse extended their lead to 15 by the end of the quarter, 46-31. The Lady Warriors got off to a good start in the final stanza, going on a 5-0 run on free throw by Tiffany Huffman, two free throws from Lindsey Vincent, and a bucket by Karrisa West. Northfield answered, however, with five points of their own – Stephan (1) and Reed (4). From that point on North Miami’s Ashley Vincent had a basket, as did Reed for Northfield, but the rest of the points were scored on free throws. One of the keys to Northfield’s victory was rebounding, as the Lady Norse bested the Lady Warriors in that category by a doubledigit margin. “We worked a lot on [our rebounding] because we got outrebounded at Mississinewa and it cost us the game,” Cervanka explained. “We don’t want to get beat for the same reason two times in a row so we worked a lot on it. Morgan (Peas) was outsized but had 14 rebounds followed by Sidney (Reed) with 11 boards.” “We had a lot of players step up for us tonight and contribute,” she continued. “We talked about how we each have to do our part and [Reed] did a good job of taking the ball hard to the basket. Our bench players (Richter, Brown, Frehse, Echard) gave us good solid minutes tonight. I really felt like tonight our whole team helped each other out; the girls are so deserving of this win.” Eltzroth finished with 26 points and nine rebounds, while Reed chipped in 18 points and 11 rebounds. Also for the Lady Norse, Stephan had seven,

Richter scored five, and Peas had two to go with 14 rebounds. Wood led the Lady Warriors with 11, followed by L. Vincent and Huffman with seven apiece. A. Vincent and Taylor Sadowsky each finished with six, West had two, and Cortnee Lefebvre had one. Northfield improved to 4-11 (1-4) after the win. The loss dropped North Miami to 3-12 (0-5).

January 19, 2011 by Danielle Smith A Person You Should Know this week is Heather Flack, librarian at White’s Residential and Family Services. Heather was born and raised in Wabash. She is a graduate of Wabash High School, and she received a bachelor’s degree in communication studies from Manchester College. Upon graduating from college she began a life of working with children in a position at the Youth Service Bureau. That job was followed by a position with Junior Achievement. She then had the opportunity to teach college in Fort Wayne and Muncie, which began a new chapter in her working life. In 2006, during her time teaching college, Heather realized that she had a desire to teach high school students. Unfortunately, she needed two more years of school in order to teach high school in Indiana, so she packed up and moved to Montana, where she was able to teach on an emergency license for three years. Heather then returned to Indiana, where she floated between different teaching positions before landing her full-time position as librarian at White’s. She loves reading, and, at last count, had 39 boxes full of books. She also enjoys working with Lori Overmyer Photography, helping shoot large events such as weddings. Heather has a son, Ethan, a senior at Southwood Jr./Sr. High School. Her father, Jim Flack, is retired from Wabash Middle School, and her mother is deceased. Heather has led an

interesting life with plenty of traveling, and she has a passion for education that is evident in the energy she exhibits when interacting with students. Read her answers to the questions below to learn more about her life and career. What do you love about your position at White’s? I love these kids; I think they are funny and creative. It’s a good fit for me, I understand their needs and I relate to that. I have always said that when people say they have a calling I feel like it’s an excuse for someone to do something completely off the wall or to have an answer when they don’t know what else to say. Well now I’m at this age where I’m like, “Oh great, I have a calling!” I’m not sure I mean it even in a religious way, but I feel called to serve here in some capacity. I love books so it’s a wonderful blend. I get to work with kids and I get to be in a school setting. I get the best of both worlds, there are no papers to grade and there are no lesson plans to write. How do you maintain so much energy? The kids just seem to bring out the best in me. I think all kids need people who care, who are involved, who are positive, but especially here because they already have so many negatives that have brought them here. I always make sure that I keep a positive front. No matter what is happening at home, I park it at the door because it has nothing to do with them. This is a place where I always try to be positive because they deserve that. What are some of your childhood memories? My earliest memory is being

four years old and walking to the public library by myself with my mom standing on the corner, watching me walk down the street. The librarian would come out and wave and walk in with me. There were tons of kids in my neighborhood and we played tag at night until the streetlights went on then it was time to go home. That was the rule. My parents always had an open door policy. As an adult I now know it was better for them to invite every kid in the neighborhood so they knew where I was, who I was with and what I was doing. We lived in a big old house so they didn’t care if a bunch of us were doing homework at the dining room table, the stereo was up loud, my brother had his friends playing video games and one of my other friends was cooking in our kitchen. They didn’t mind. How did you end up living in Montana? When I was a little girl I remember my mom reading a story to me. With all my love of books, I have never been able to find it, but it was about a little pioneer girl and little Native American girl who were friends. The pioneer girl would read to the Native American girl and it took place in Montana so I had always wanted to go there. So, on a whim, I sat down on a computer at the Montana Department of Education website, and applied for the first 10 English teacher jobs. I had nine interviews and eight offers so everything pointed that direction. It was a very small ranching town. I learned to ride a horse and I actually have herded cattle so when people say, “It’s easier to herd cattle than children”, it is and I know that. My son needed more opportunities to grow as a high school student and needed to have more academic opportunities so we came back so he could finish in a school larger than 76 kids. What traveling have you done? I’ve been through a good portion of the U.S. My very favorite place is Boston; I love the New England area. I was very lucky to have a chance to go to Ireland and I was in Dublin and Milan, Italy, for four days. I went to visit a friend, it was right after I moved back from Montana. Ireland is

everything that you think about when you see it in the movies or on TV; it was wonderful. I would go back in a second, I dream of one day living in London or somewhere in England or Ireland. What are your educational goals? I’ve worked halfway through my master’s degree, but I’m still unsure of my major. That’s why I stopped, I’ve taken as many hours as I can take with electives and now I have to decide if am I going to do English or education. If I get a master’s in education that’s going to qualify me to do administrative work, but my love is really with students which you don’t get as much of except more on, unfortunately, a negative end as a dean or an assistant principal, which usually falls as a disciplinarian and I don’t like that part. What other dreams do you have? Someday maybe I’ll have a book published. I had some crazy experiences when I was in Montana. Not that people think of Wabash really as a city, but you take a city girl from this part of the country and transplant her into a small ranch town with more population of horses and cows than people and you get some zany Carol Burnette sort of things happening. So I would probably go the female contemporary humorous memoir route and write my first book about the three years I spent there. What is your New Year’s resolution? I always set a goal of how many books I want to read in a year and I always say I want to read 100 books a year, but this year out of the 100 I want to make sure 10 of them are classics that I have never read before. I always find that education is lacking in the classics, we don’t seem to teach those as much, and the more I read them the more I know why, but I’m going to plow through 10 classics that I haven’t read before. Do you have someone you would like to nominate for “A Person You Should Know”? The only requirement is that they be a local person that contributes something positive to our community.

URBANA LIONS CLUB met on Jan. 10 for a Board meeting at 6 p.m. and a regular meeting at 7 p.m. with President Luke Hunt in charge of both meetings. Plans were begun for the Club’s Feb. 26 Fish Fry to raise funds for upcoming projects. The joint effort between the Urbana Lions Club and the Urbana Yoke Parish to provide food for local families, through the Seven Mile Mini Mart, has not been completed. There is still money available to help Urbana individuals and families who are experiencing the consequences of unemployment or other negative conditions in our economy by providing food. If anyone who has an Urbana address or Urbana phone number has not already taken advantage of this offer and is still interested in the details, please contact Lisa or Jeff at the Seven Mile

On Feb. 14, at 6:30 p.m., the Club will have its annual Valentine’s dinner meeting for members, spouses, and/or guests at the Great Wall Restaurant, Wabash. The Urbana Lions Club is always seeking new members. It is one of 45,000 clubs worldwide with 1.35 million members making the Lions organization the world’s largest service club organization. The motto of all clubs is “We serve” and this is what they do in 205 countries, in hospitals and senior centers, in regions battered by natural disaster, in schools and in eyeglass recycling centers where they are at work, helping, leading, planning and supporting. Because clubs are local, they can serve the unique needs of the communities they live in. And because the Club is global, they can address challenges that go beyond borders.

THINKING OF HAVING A FARM SALE? TALK TO US! We can offer you special commission rates depending on the size of your farm sale. We will advertise it along with our regular consignment sale, but charge you no advertising. We can guarantee you bigger, more widespread advertising with no cost to you. This has been a very successful approach for some of our local farmers, who have gotten more money for less cost than having their own farm sales.
