THE PAPER July 20, 2011

Suspect arrested after jail visitation A Peru woman was arrested by Deputy Ben Mota after jail staff smelled the odor of marijuana. On July 13 at approximately 7:42 p.m., Wabash County Jail Officer Jana Andersen reported the strong odor of marijuana coming from Stacey Hanes, 29, who was at the jail on visitation. Jail Officer Andersen then notified deputy Ben Mota of the situation. Deputy Mota approached Ms. Hanes as she exited the jail and entered her vehicle, which was parked in the street across from the jail. As Deputy Mota spoke with Ms. Hanes, he could smell an odor of burnt marijuana coming from within her vehicle. A search of the vehicle was conducted by Deputy Mota. During the search deputy Mota located a small amount of suspected marijuana. Also located was a quantity of methadone tablets, hydrocodone tablets, and alprazolam tablets, all of which are scheduled controlled substances. Stacey Hanes was incarcerated in the Wabash County Jail on four class D felony counts of illegal possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia. Formal charges are pending review by the Wabash County Prosecutor’s Office.

Proudly Serving Wabash County Since 1977

Richard Mourdock believes “it’s time” to challenge incumbent U.S. Senator Dick Lugar Challenger expects to bring a different perspective to the U.S. Senate by Shaun Tilghman Richard Mourdock is challenging Sen. Dick Lugar in the Republican primary of the 2012 Indiana U.S. Senate election after serving as Indiana State Treasurer since February 2007. “A year ago in June, members of the State R e p u b l i c a n Committee asked me to consider [running for Senator],” said Mourdock. “At the time I was shocked and told them I really wasn’t interested. After the election last fall – when I led the ticket in Indiana – they intensified their request, so I started looking at it. As I watched Sen. Lugar during the last lame duck session of Congress I saw him casting votes that just told me it was time to challenge Sen. Lugar, and that’s when we decided to move forward.” Mourdock went on to say that he made

his decision not only at the urging of the State Republican Committee members but also with support from many Republican county chairmen. “There are 92 county chairmen,” he continued, “and on the day I announced, three-quarters of them actually signed on to support my candidacy. I’m often asked if I’m a Tea Party candidate and I always tell people I’ve run for office six times and I’ve always had an ‘R’ next to my name not a ‘T’ – with three-quarters of the county chairmen behind me I think that pretty well answers the question.” According to Mourdock, he brings a different perspective to the table because of his 31-year record of executive experience in the business world – the first time he held a full-time government job was serving as State Treasurer. He expects to bring a more conservative perspective, especially in the area of finance, and he

believes his experiences as State Treasurer have helped prepare him for a Senate position. “I’m about reducing the size of government, reducing this immoral level of debt we have, lessening the regulatory environment on American businesses, and dramatically revising the American tax code,” he explained. “We’ve gone through the biggest financial meltdown in global history in the last three years. Having been the State Treasurer during that time has not always been fun because we’ve had to make tough decisions to help keep the state’s budget balanced, and we’ve done it – we have a record most states are envious of.” Several years ago Mourdock was at the center of the Supreme Court case challenging the bailout of Chrysler on behalf of Indiana pensioners. “I took an oath of office that said I would support the laws of the State of Indiana and I would

officers – were having their Constitutional rights violated, and we were going to support them no matter what. I have no regrets about taking the case and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.” As a result of his

experiences in the private sector, Mourdock says he knows firsthand what hindrances the federal government has in the American workplace. “With all respect to Sen. Lugar, he’s been there for 35 (continued on page 6)

Taylor Chamberlain wins 2011 Round Robin Showmanship by Brent Swan For the second time in her 10-year career, Taylor Chamberlain entered the Round Robin Showmanship looking to complete her 4-H career with t h e title of

Wabash County’s premier 4-H showman. Supreme Showmen from the Swine (Austin Sommers), Dairy (Allie Enyeart), Beef (Emily Shorter), Veal (Dustin Lee), Goat

(Jackie McConnell), S h e e p

judged by Brett Henderson. Henderson, a former showman who now raises Suffolk Sheep, was a former member of both the Joliet Community College and Purdue

University Livestock Judging teams. “In judging a show like this, it really reminds me how much I miss showing my own animals in our local fairs and shows,” Henderson said. “To see the backing this show has received in the community, the support that is here tonight; it is a truly awesome sight.” All seven Supreme Showmen began the competition in the Outdoor Show Arena. As is the case with all previous Round Robin shows, each exhibitor was randomly drawn to show one animal, which could not be their own, from each of seven different species.

High feed costs, increased exports lead to rising pork prices

Pork prices are on the rise as international exports increase and high feed costs are passed on to consumers, said a Purdue Extension agricultural economist. Retail prices this year are averaging a record $3.35 per pound, up 14 percent from $2.93 per pound in early 2010. Increases in exports to South Korea, Japan, Russia and China have led to stronger demand for U.S. pork, said Chris Hurt. Meat designat-

ed for export comprised 22 percent of all U.S. pork in production this spring, and he said that is leaving less for U.S. consumers. “While it now appears pork production will rise about 1 percent this year, the large sales to foreign customers mean tight supplies here at home,” Hurt said. In recent weeks, corn prices have fallen after reaching a record high of more than $8 per bushel in some locations. Margins between hog

last three years due to a variety of factors including volatile feed costs and world recession in 2008 and 2009 leading to financial losses. But after years of uncertainty and decline in the industry, Hurt said the number of market hogs increased this year because sows are now averaging a record 10 pigs per litter. Despite an outlook for some profits with recent decreases in corn prices, Hurt said the national swine

revenues and feed costs are now positive, which is welcome news for the pork industry. “Everyone in the pork marketing channel is sharing as packer gross margins are up 10 percent, retail margins are up 14 percent, and producers received 16 percent higher prices,” Hurt said. “High feed prices over the past four years are finally getting transmitted to consumers.” The national breeding herd has shrunk by 5 percent in the

herd is unlikely to expand this summer. “Pork producers know that corn and soybean yields are not yet assured; the feed outlook could still change sharply depending on final

yields in the U.S. and the northern hemisphere,” Hurt said. “For this reason, there will be almost no movement to expand herds unless cash corn prices are under $6 a bushel this


Health risks rise as Hoosiers melt in heat wave The heat wave over much of Indiana has sparked an advisory from the National Weather Service, reminding residents about health risks of high heat for the very young and

those over 65. Leah Schrock, health education coordinator with the Area 2 Agency on Aging in South Bend, said people should be sure to check on older

friends and relatives, since they often don’t realize the heat is affecting their health, whether as heat exhaustion, heat cramps, or lifethreatening heat stroke.

Popular fungicides failing, may cause hard choices for apple growers JUST ONE “SMART” REASON TO CALL NOW: 24-hour Service, 7 days a week. Why wait? Your problem and needs are served quickly and correctly. Call now. Bob Zahm

Orchard growers have found that some of the most commonly used fungicides are no longer effective at controlling apple scab, according to a Purdue University study. Janna Beckerman, an associate professor of botany and plant pathology, said that

extensive, long-term use of four popular fungicides has led to resistances in apples in Indiana and Michigan, the focus of her study. “The fungicides that are regularly used to control scab have started to fail,” said Beckerman, whose findings were

published in the early online version of the journal Plant Disease. “But the most disturbing thing we found is that many of the samples we tested were resistant to all four fungicides. It’s kind of like multidrug resistance in antibiotics. This is full-blown resistance.”

Apple scab, caused by the fungus Venturia inaequalis, is highly destructive to apples, causing brown lesions on leaves and fruit. A single lesion can reduce an apple’s value by 85 percent. Over time, the scabby lesion will crack and allow insects, other fungi

and bacteria inside, causing a loss of the crop. “It can cause orchard failures,” Beckerman said. “An orchard grower that has this could lose blocks of an orchard, or depending on the amount of diversity in the orchard, they could lose the entire crop.” It’s thought that when organisms adapt to form resistance, that change will weaken the organism in some other way. Beckerman said the study, done with Purdue graduate student Kim Chapman and Michigan State University Professor George Sundin, showed apple scab, on the contrary, is becoming resistant to fungicides with no apparent fitness penalty to itself. “Having these multiple resistances to fungicides doesn’t debilitate them in any way,” Beckerman said. Apple scab samples were treated with dodine, kresoximmethyl, myclobutanil or thiophanatemethyl. About 12 percent of the apple scab samples tested was resistant to all four fungicides. The only options apple growers have, Beckerman said, is to use older fungicides that are tightly regulated, require more frequent application and are more expensive. “It’s going to change how growers manage their o r c h a r d s , ” Beckerman said. “The more susceptible apple cultivars, like Macintosh, will become more chemically intensive to manage. Growers have few options as it is, and this will limit their options even further.” Beckerman said she and her collaborators would work to develop faster tests to detect fungicide resistance in apple scab to help growers change management plans in a timely manner. The U.S. Department of Agriculture, Purdue University and the M i c h i g a n A g r i c u l t u r a l Experiment Station funded the research.

Grace College to open locations in Indianapolis and Fort Wayne

The new Henry and Frances Weber School at Grace College, opening in Indianapolis and Fort Wayne in fall 2011, promises to narrow the gap between a personal bottom line and higher education. Recognizing that components like campus housing and meal plans can make a college education difficult to afford, Grace has simplified the educational model without compromising their mission toward character, competence and service. The Weber School delivers a Christian two-year associate’s degree for commuter students in Indiana’s two largest cities at a

fraction of the cost of traditional higher education. For students wishing to pursue bachelor’s degrees, the new school builds an accessible bridge to further education, offering automatic continuation at the Winona Lake campus or the ability to easily transfer credit to another college. This new program provides students the opportunity to attain a Christian college education by lowering costs, while making classes available in Indiana’s two largest population centers. Tuition is quoted at a flat rate of $3,900 per

semester, placing it significantly lower than most other Christian residential and private commuter colleges. Class times are scheduled in the mornings, allowing students time for parttime work, further offsetting the cost of obtaining a degree. Dr. John Teevan, executive director of the Weber School, explained, “We’re one of the few schools that has actually acknowledged the bottom line by lowering upfront costs of the first two years. With tuition for two years at the Weber School totaling just $15,600, students save almost

$45,000 as compared to two years’ worth of tuition, room and board at a typical private Christian college.” According to the U.S. Census Bureau in 2005, a two-year associate’s degree increases an individual’s median lifetime earnings by 28 percent over those with only a high school diploma. A bachelor’s degree raises earnings by nearly 70 percent. Additionally, achiev-

years and he’s been on the wrong side of those regulations – I’ve been on the side that’s been beaten up by them,” he said. “Sen. Lugar has an expertise in foreign policy,” he continued, “but I will tell you from talking to tens of thousands of Hoosiers that Hoosiers are less concerned right now with movement toward democracy in the Middle East; they’re worried about the movement of their jobs [overseas]. Having that private sector background and understanding the way business works as opposed to sitting in D.C. and playing a part in regulating businesses – that’s a vastly different outlook and experience level.” Another issue that has surfaced repeatedly is the difference in the amount of funds available to each candidate’s respective campaign. “I’ve said all along that Sen. Lugar would have three- to fourtimes more money than we did and that’s just the way it is,” Mourdock said. “The

primary is not about who has the most money, it’s about who has the ground game and who has the grassroots organization. We are building one that is going to be second to none as far as a primary – everything is going our way right now.” According to the official website of Richard Mourdock for U.S. Senate (, “It’s happening all over Indiana. Thousands of Hoosiers are saying ‘it’s time’ for new leadership in Washington. It’s time for Richard Mourdock.” City of Wabash Mayor Robert Va n l a n d i n g h a m recently joined those Hoosiers by choosing to endorse Mourdock’s candidacy. However, many mayors across Indiana have yet to announce which respective candidate they will be supporting. “Endorsements are what they are and I’m proud to say we have the grassroots all across big cities and small counties alike,” Mourdock explained. In terms of the affect those endorsements have with the voters, Mourdock said

it depends on the mayor and it depends on the county chairman. He added, “When you have people who are actively working out in the community like Bob Vanlandingham does then yes I think it means a great deal. I think it certainly means more for a challenger than an incumbent because when [the mayors or the county chairmen] choose a challenger candidate they’re taking some political risks to do that, and I think it makes a great statement.” When Mourdock was in Wabash last week for a fundraiser hosted by Mayor Vanlandingham, he also attended and spoke at a business round table organized by Bill Konyha, executive director of the E c o n o m i c Development Group of Wabash County. Mourdock said this gave him an opportunity to get a sense of what is happening in the community and to get some feedback from business people, while also allowing him to share his thoughts on what is happening in the State economically. Mourdock serves with Konyha on the Indiana Bond Bank,

which is a quasi-governmental agency that helps do financing for local units of government around the state. He has known Konyha since before the former was even involved in state government. “Even back then I was impressed with Bill’s unique insight into how government can work with the private sector,” he stated. “There are so many people who are in positions like his and they think the government is just going to solve their problems, but Bill realizes that’s not the way the real world works – he’s great at what he does. “There is a sense of optimism in this area – in the economic sense – that I don’t see in a lot of places in Indiana, and I think it’s because of what your local Economic Development Group has done. There are a lot of amazing success stories here and I know he’s got a lot more in the pipeline – it’s thrilling to see that stuff.” When asked what he believes is the most important information he could express not only to the people of Indiana but also the people of Wabash County, Mourdock replied: “It would

have to be the sense that it is a beautiful thing…to know if I’m privileged to serve in this office I’m willing to make some difficult decisions. Too many in Washington, D.C., right now want to ‘kick the can down the road’ past the next election day, because of my background in finance I’m telling you we can’t afford to do that anymore – we’ve got to make some tough decisions that are not based on what people are going to think when they vote six years down the road. This isn’t about me, this is about the direction the country is going to take; Sen. Lugar has been there 35 years and in the last 10 years he’s voted to raise the debt limit seven times – that’s a contrast.” He concluded by saying that the focus of the campaign is to use their time to be in the right places. “We’re reminding people of the job we’ve done,” Mourdock added, “we’re letting them know we’ve been a part of this Daniels administration that’s kept the state on a balanced budget, and we’re letting them know this time they have a real opportunity.”

Chamberlain wins 2011 Round Robin Showmanship...(continued from front page) was instructed to lead their respective horse through a relatively simple pattern, laid out by the judge prior to the competition. “I was looking for an individual that could guide their horse through this pattern,” Henderson said. “I understand that the animals have a mind of their own and they won’t always cooperate the way you want them to.” After completing the horse portion of the evening, the showmen were led into the Indoor Show Arena where they showcased their abilities with each of the remaining six species. “We are all competitors,” Henderson said after completing the swine segment. “You like to see the showmen keep the animals from running into each other. One of the

questions I asked each of the showmen during this part was to name what they liked about their hog and what were some of the things they didn’t like about it. One of the most important things in a show is to know your animals strengths and weaknesses and to show your animal accordingly. “You’ll hear me say throughout the night that one of the most critical parts of this show is to see these competitors keep their composure,” Henderson explained. “It’s been a long week, the animals are tired. The showmen are tired. In the end, if you are calm, it goes a long way towards keeping your animal calm and makes it that much easier to show.” After announcing Chamberlain as the

2011 Wabash County 4-H Fair Round Robin champion, Henderson said it came down to composure and consistency in naming the county’s best showman.

After the show, Chamberlain said she felt she had missed her opportunity from the onset. “I thought I messed the pattern up on the horses,” C h a m b e r l a i n explained. “I didn’t do the 90 degree turn. After that, I thought it’d be someone else so I tried to just concentrate on each animal from that point on. I never thought I’d have a chance.”

Despite the early a d v e r s i t y ,

Chamberlain kept her calm, and kept on doing what she has done throughout her 4-H career, focusing on showing her animal. “I’ve worked with my cousins for a while to see what all I needed to know coming into the Round Robin,” Chamberlain said. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to win. “I was worried about the Beef Steers and Horses coming into the show, but thanks to the Mizes and my cousins for helping me out,” Chamberlain said. “To get this in my last year is awesome. I can’t believe it.”

THIS PICTURE, CALLED “THE THRESHERS”, came from the Clay Driscoll family and was taken in 1940. Pictured are: (from left) Bob Driscoll, unknown, Clay Driscoll, John Ryan, ten year old Lloyd Driscoll, Marcus Goodrich and Bruce Smith. Other members of the threshing group that traveled to each other’s farms were Hugh Driscoll, Robert Smith, Charlie Rager, the Freshours and the Coughlins. Since the wagons were not sealed tight, the grain was bagged and stacked. This was usually done by Clay and John Ryan. When the wagon was full, the grain was taken to the granary. Other members of the threshing group would go out in the fields and gather the sheaves and bring them to the separator, which would separate the grain from the straw. Some farmers blew straw into their barns while others left it outside in a straw stack. Each worker would usually bring their own lunch but Phil Guttrich, the ring leader would be fed by the host farmer. After all the fields had been thrashed, the group would meet at the Smith farm for a “night to settle up”. organ – Janene Dawes; piano – Nancy Miller.

lunch. Their mother came and picked them up on Monday. It is very quiet now. My granddaughters wanted me to be sure and write about them coming up for the weekend. WORDS OF WISDOM: Life comes to you one moment at a time, as the grains of sand dropping one by one in an hourglass.

TORNADO SIREN is not working. You can get tornado updates on your phone by setting up Code Red Alert at 1800-566-9780. They will then call you on your phone with tornado updates. There is no charge for this. IN 1933, THE LAKETON CONSERVATION CLUB was formed by a group of men interested in conservation. Having no good place to meet the need for a building was very important. In 1935, eight lots were bought on the east side of Round Lake. Through membership and donations the lots were paid for and in 1937 the clubhouse was completed. Tamarck poles from the Nature Akers were taken to George Gaddis and sawed in halves so they could be used to make the building look more like a log building. The inside was lined with shiplap, with a large fireplace at the north


end, and kitchen equipment at the south. Those in the middle had to keep each other warm. When the building was completed a representative of the State Conservation Department told that the highlights of conservation were not just fishing and game conservation, but also finding means to combat pests and replace our vanishing woods and other natural resources. The club has not been active since 1962 but in 1970 Darl West was given permission from the C o n s e r vat i o n Department to use the building. It was made into a game room for men who want to spend time playing pool and telling tall tales. It has since been closed. C U R R E N T EVENTS: The Laketon Lions will take the Lions baseball team they sponsor, to Fort Wayne to see the Fort Wayne Tin Caps play

on July 30. BE SURE TO GET YOUR ELEPHANT EARS from the Laketon Lions at the Crunch & Munch in the Lance’s New Market parking lot on Aug. 5 and 6. The Laketon Lions will be sponsoring this. The Laketon Lions Club uses money collected from these events for local youth activities. THE LAKETON AMERICAN LEGION AUXILIARY will hold a carry-in dinner for several Marion Hospital veterans at the Laketon Legion Post Home on Aug. 10 at 6 p.m. American Legion and Auxiliary members are urged to attend. Meat and drinks will be furnished and there will be special entertainment. THE LAKETON / PLEASANT TOWNSHIP ASSOCIATION would like to thank the Long Lake Campground for the

LAKETON FESTIVAL: It would be greatly appreciated if anyone who lives in Laketon would be willing to donate the use of their land on Sept. 24 and 25 for some of the Laketonian Festival activities. This will help make this festival a success. HAPPY BIRTHDAY wishes to everyone who has a birthday in July. THE NEXT LAKETON / PLEASANT TOWNSHIP monthly meeting will be held July 25.

On July 30, there will be a free public concert of live alphorn music at the Hidden Hollows Retreat, the residence of Dan Servos and Virginia Nixon in rural Lagro.

Minnesota, Florida, New Jersey and many points in between. This year’s concert will feature a solo performance by Dr. DeMers accompanied by a French horn quintet composed primarily of Fort Wayne area community band French horn players. Alphorns are usually associated with Switzerland and the Alps. They have been used for generations to signal back and forth between Alpine villages, their reverberations and echoes carrying for long distances through the mountain valleys and meadows. Alphorns are usually painstakingly handcrafted out of wood, though some newer ones are made from carbon fiber. Musically, they are similar in tone and range to the modern French horn, but with a mellower tone. The Hidden Hollows Retreat is located at 1943 N 650 E in Wabash County, just off of U.S. 24 east

Yamma Ensemble of Israel will perform in at the Honeywell Center in Wabash on Oct. 28 at 7:30 p.m. following a week of residencies with local schools. Yamma Ensemble is a five-member band from Israel who represents many different cultural and ethnic backgrounds that thrive in their country. Their sounds, drawn together from Eastern European, Balkan, Gypsy, Sephardic and Yemenite melodies, are at times joyous and at others moving; together they bring to their audiences the cultural mosaic that is Israel. Tickets may be purchased at the box office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, by calling 260-563-1102 or visiting Arts Midwest World Fest is a twoyear program held in partnership with the Honeywell Center’s E d u c a t i o n a l Outreach Program. The program brings four cultural ensem-

bles to one community in each of the nine states served by Arts Midwest. Each group’s week-long stay in Wabash will feature public performances and school workshops focusing on music, education and interaction. “Wabash is the only community to be invited in the State of Indiana for the 2011-2013 series,” said Ken Carlson, Arts Midwest Senior Program Director. “With the encouragement of the Indiana Arts Commission, our assessment is that the Honeywell Center and the community of Wabash are going to be a perfect fit.” Prior to the residencies, Arts Midwest will prepare and provide curriculum materi-

als for use by schools and other community organizations. The curriculum along with residency activities will be designed to enhance the audience’s understanding and appreciation of these cultures and performing arts in an accessible and

lasting manner. The World Fest will also feature Tarim, consisting of a dozen artists from the Xinjiang region of China, coming in March 2012; Wust El Balad from Cairo, Egypt coming in the fall of 2012; and the Balinese group Cudamani arriving

WALK WITH A DOC participants took to Paradise Spring on July 9 in an effort to make Wabash a healthier community. Organizers will host another event on Aug. 6, with details to be released in the near future. (photo provided) and support, and the City Park for letting us use the beautiful Paradise Springs Historical Park. Some of the best feedback I received from the event was when one participant said that she had never been to Paradise Springs before, and did not even know it existed. Another participant knew about it, but had not been there in years and had forgotten about its beauty. It was gratifying to know that I was able to introduce, as well as reconnect, our participants to one of the best walking places in

Wabash! However, the best feedback of all was when one participant came up to thank me for putting on this event as it was the first time she was able to walk a full 30 minutes in over a year. American Health Network, Wabash County YMCA, and I hope to bring in more physicians and walkers to our next event on Aug. 6. Our goal is to continue to make Wabash a healthier community. More information will be available in the near future. Walk with a Doc is a non-profit organization focused on

encouraging healthy physical activity in people of all ages. Its mission is improving the health and wellbeing of the country by eliminating the nationwide epidemic of obesity. Our walk on July 9th, 2011 made history by becoming the first “Walk with a Doc” event in Indiana! Special thanks to our Healthcare Heroes and participants for making this happen! Please make walking a part of your daily routine! Christina Doan, LPN Health Coach, Patient Advocate

end of his administration? Who in the world was that? Bill Clinton that’s who. In 2000. Now, to clear up the wild spending mess George W. Bush left in 2008, the answer is simple, lets follow the tax rates used by Bill Clinton. Everybody had jobs, banks were paying good interest on savings and the budget was balanced with a surplus left. Let our so called representatives come in off the golf course, set the tax rates the same as Bill Clinton had and they can go back to their fun and games. Wake up America before it’s too late! Vote them in and vote them out. Don’t leave them in there. Bernie Dillard Wabash

Dear editor, For over 236 years, we Americans have owed our freedoms to the men and women of the United State Army. Now, at long last, the American Soldier will be honored with the National Museum of the U.S. Army near our nation’s capital. Many members of our community have proudly worn the uniform of the U.S. Army. As a founding sponsor of the museum, I ask that you help make every one in our community aware of this long overdue national project by running a story on plans to build and open this important new museum on June 14, 2015, the Army’s 240th Brthday. For more information, please contact the Army Histroical Foundation by calling 703-562-4173 for a press kit or visit www.armyhistory,org . Thank you. Gerald Pankop Wabash
