Eckelbarger selected as Lilly Endowment Scholarship Winner by Eric Stearley On Thursday, April 3, Northfield High School Principal Mike Keaffaber, select teachers, and members of the press waited anxiously in the Northfield High School office for the arrival of Emily Eckelbarger, recipient of this year’s Lilly Endowment Scholarship. Waiting with them were two proud parents, Brian and Kryston Eckelbarger. Just as anxious were the six finalists, knowing that one day soon, the winner of the four-year, full-tuition scholarship would be announced. The “ambush” style announcement ensured that the winner was completely surprised. While the group waited, secretary Melanie Penn made her way to Eckelbarger’s class to formally escort the winner to the office. As she entered the office’s conference room, she saw her principal, teachers and parents, as well as cameras rapidly capturing her reaction. Then she saw Julie Garber, program director for the Community Foundation of Wabash County, and instantly, Eckelbarger knew why she was there. “Is this what I think it is?” she said as she took a seat at the head of the table. With that, Garber announced that Eckelbarger had been chosen to receive the prestigious scholarship.

“I’ve never had Mrs. Penn escort me, so I thought that spelled trouble, but I couldn’t think of anything,” said Eckelbarger after the reveal. “[I was] a little confused, but kind of connected it once I saw Julie. That connected the dots and I realized that if this was what I thought it was, I was about to have the best surprise...of this year.” Eckelbarger clearly earned the scholarship. In addition to being an exceptional student, she is the president of student council and Teens for Global Awareness, which educates students on global issues, such as hunger, poverty, and education. She displays her commitment to these issues by volunteering at F.I.S.H.’s food pantry, the Lighthouse Mission, and the Roann branch of the free lunch program. In addition, she plays piano in the school’s jazz band and Mrs. Coppler’s Studio of Music. She is a National Honor Society member, as well as a performer and set designer in the school’s theatre program. Finally, she manages to keep a part-time job at Modoc’s Market. When asked about her motivation to achieve, Emily looked at her parents and said, “I think these two are to be credited for that. I’ve always been taught that hard work pays off in great rewards.” “We were just overjoyed and thrilled and relieved,” Kryston Eckelbarger said about being notified that her daughter was the winner. “It takes a big burden off.

Finalists are also interviewed, which fac-

tors into the final score. “It’s a privilege,” Garber told Eckelbarger after presenting the award. “You rose to the top of that group.” The last Northfield High School student to receive the scholarship was Josh Unger in 2011. It is always exciting for a (continued on page 5)

Museum hosts Grand Opening of the Charles R. Showalter Gallery

JOHN SHOWALTER CUTS THE RIBBON during the Grand Opening of the Charles R. Showalter Gallery, located on the second level of the Wabash County Historical Museum on Friday, April 4. Son of the late Charles Showalter, John was joined by members of his family, including his wife, Peggy, Museum Communications Specialist Emily Gardner, and Chamber of Commerce President Lance Agness. (photo by Eric Stearley)

by Eric Stearley The main attraction at April’s First Friday Art Walk was the Wabash County Historical Museum’s Grand Opening of the Charles R. Showalter Gallery. Along with Chamber of Commerce representatives and a large group of community members, Mr. Showalter’s son, John, and his family, were in attendance to cut the ribbon and officially open the gallery. The gallery will be a permanent installation in the museum. It was designed to showcase the work of Wabash County artists, and will feature new artists each quarter. The Showalter name has a long history in Wabash. Charles R. Showalter was the son of two-time Wabash County Mayor Homer T. Showalter. Described by his grandson, John, as a gregarious, gladhand politician and “Mr. Wabash,” Homer Showalter was a great promoter of the city, county, and state. Growing up in his family’s home on Sinclair Street, Charles Showalter was the “black sheep” of the family, according to John. He left Wabash as a young man, traveling to Chicago to pursue his passion for art. After returning from mil-

itary service, Showalter began working with Haddon Sundblom, creator of the original “Coca-Cola Santa Claus.” Showalter gained recognition as Sundbloms’ protégé, continuing to work on future Coca-Cola Santas. In addition, he created advertisement illustrations for Sealy mattresses and Hush Puppies Shoes. He was also the man behind the poster for the original “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” film and the designer of the first Coppertone Baby. “It’s classic oil painting artwork, back when illustration art was classical art,” said John. “It wasn’t cartoons, it was classical art. The irony is, unless you ran the studio, unless you were the ad agency, nobody knew who you were.” John and his wife, Peggy, spoke highly of Wabash and its museum. They have fond memories of visiting Homer, who died in his home on Sinclair Street in 1978. “Coming back here and going back down the streets that we visited when I was a kid…going down Hill Street to the park, and down the hill and looking at what used to be the cafeteria where we had lunch every Sunday when we would come to visit, it’s just kind of neat,” said (continued on page 5)

Owner Matthew Haynes has been a pastor for the past 15 years. When Calvary Baptist Church closed in January, Haynes was out of a job and decided to go in a different direction. “I decided I waned to do something to stay in the community, because we really like Wabash,” said Haynes. “I’ve run businesses before, but I thought, ‘I love tattooing, and I love people, and I love Wabash, so to tie it all together, this would be a good thing.’” Haynes has been helping out at Studio B Tattoo in Marion for the past couple years, which is where he met tattoo artist and Wabash native Roger Price. Haynes knew he wanted to be downtown, “just

because of the vibe,” and when he came across the old bingo hall adjacent to Rock City Café and found out it was for rent, he jumped on the opportunity. In just two weeks, Haynes, along with many helping hands, transformed the smoky old bingo hall into a beautiful creative space. “It was just a cool looking, massive, giant room, with brick walls and tin ceilings,” Haynes said. After a deep clean, several coats of paint, construction of booths, and placement of a few giant Filament Tattoo Company logos on the walls, another downtown storefront was transformed from a vacant space into a place for art and community. The shop has three booths for tattooing and a piercing

room, as well as an inviting lobby for patrons to meet, decide upon new artwork, and wait in anticipation for their turn in the chair. Haynes is licensed to tattoo, but mostly leaves the artwork up to the professionals. Price has been tattooing professionally for five years, but anyone who knows him also knows that he’s been tattooing as a hobby for many more – eight more to be exact. On opening day, he gave the shops first tattoo to his brother David. The two made a deal; David got to be first in the chair and get a free tattoo, but Roger got to decide what it would be. He chose the shop’s logo, an old-school filament light bulb. “We’re the first electrically lighted city in the world, so you go back to the

invention of the light bulb with Thomas Edison,” Haynes said as he explained the company’s name and logo. “Well, Thomas Edison is actually the inventor of the modern tattoo machine.” Edison invented the electric pen in 1876. He intended for his invention to be used as a duplicating device, but in 1891, Samuel O’Reilly modified the device to penetrate skin, creating the first electric tattoo machine. “It totally changed the industry, so Edison gave us light, and he gave us the tattoo machine,” said Haynes. “You take those things and add the fact that Wabash is a city that’s known for light, so ya.” Currently, Price is the lone tattoo artist working at the shop, which also has a piercing specialist. “At this point, we’re only two weeks into it. We’ve been looking for people, but that takes some time to find the right people,” said Haynes. “We’ve had lots of people interested, but they weren’t the right people, so we’re kind of holding out. We’ve got room for two [more] artists without doing anymore building.” In addition to body art, Haynes hopes the shop can be a place for traditional art as well. What is currently a long, empty wall will soon be an art gallery of sorts. “Wabash has had kind of a string of tattoo shops, but we wanted something that wasn’t just a street shop. We want this to be a place where art is happening,” said Haynes. “I want all of our artists to really be stretching themselves and trying new things. That’s the environment we want to have here, where we’re really producing some cool art, as well as supporting some artists in the area. We’d love for even kids to be able to display stuff in here. As far as I’m concerned, if we’ve got room on the wall, we’ll hang it up there, and hopefully sell it for you.” Filament Tattoo Company is open from 12-8 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday and 12-10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. It will undoubtedly be a must-hit spot on future First Friday Art Walks.

North Manchester Moose Family Center celebrates 100 years

MOOSE FAMILY CENTER in North Manchester celebrated 100 years of community involvement and generosity on April 2. The 585 members of the Family Fraternity Lodge donate to the Manchester Swimming Pool, Booster Club, Cancer Society, Relay for Life, Junior Achievement, Shrines Hospital and many other organizations, all while supporting children who might not otherwise have access to everything they need. Pictured are, from left: Doug Sorg, past governor, Sharon Lindzy, senior regent, Dave Kline, bar manager, Jerry Johnson, administrator, Mick Ousely, governor, and Byron Betten, junior governor. (photo by Kalie Ammons)

by Kalie Ammons Those who say hospitality is dead have obviously never visited the Moose Family Center in North Manchester. “Welcome! How are you? Can I get you something to drink?” are the first words a stranger hears from the generous group inside the Lodge. Generous may in fact be an understatement. Since April 2, 1914, the members of the Lodge have donated to many local charities, all while helping to support the Mooseheart Child City and School located near Aurora, Ill.

Mooseheart was dedicated on July 27, 1913, after Vice President Thomas Marshall, a North Manchester native, spoke at a ceremony. Mooseheart supports children in need from infancy to graduation. Adorned on the wall of the Lodge are pictures of two girls they currently support. “We call them our Sunshine Children,” said Jerry Johnson, administrator of lodge #1518. Between the laughing, poking fun, punch and cake, members viewed pictures of the families they have helped and are

currently helping. “We help support this house in Indiana,” Johnson said. “I believe there are nine girls all living there.”

The Moose Family Center 1518 is located at 207 East Main St., North Manchester, and is open from 12— 10 p.m. The Moose is a nonsmoking facility.

INGUARD is the new name of the firm formerly known as Beauchamp & McSpadden/Morriso n Galliher, with their corporate headquarters still located at 231 West Canal Street, Wabash. Parker Beauchamp, CEO of INGUARD and co-founder of the Rock City Bike Club is thrilled to have the firm serve as the presenting sponsor for what has become an annual destination event. “Our business is deep-rooted in the health and wellness of our community,” stated Beauchamp. “We are proud to sponsor an event that connects people with fitness while enjoying the scenic beauty of our rural communities.” The Wabash County Convention and Visitors Bureau partnered with the Rock City Bike Club to organize a professional century bike ride to take place on Sunday, September 14.

Riders experience 16 points of historic interest throughout the county. All of the routes are designed to showcase Wabash County’s rural beauty during the changing of the season. “I have cycled with Parker (Beauchamp) several times over the years and knew he had an affinity for distance cycling,” shared Amy Ford, chair for the Dam to Dam organizing committee. “Offering his firm the option to be the presenting sponsor was a perfect fit and I am pleased to have the INGUARD logo associated with the ride.” Sponsors are vital to the success of an event of this magnitude.

Horse and Pony Club to hold inaugural ride-a-thon

by Emily Armentrout The Wabash County 4-H Horse and Pony Club will hold their inaugural ride-a-thon at Crazy Horse Arena on Saturday, April 19 from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Amy Lybarger, member of the parent committee for the Horse and Pony Club, spoke with The Paper about what the ride-a-thon

will hold and the idea behind this event. The ride-a-thon “is a fundraiser for the Horse and Pony Club,” explained Lybarger. “We have to be pretty self-sufficient. Our club is one of the largest county clubs, with about 50 to 60 kids. We meet at the fairgrounds and we try to do as many improvements to our little spot of the grounds as we can.

These improvements have to come out of our pocket.” The Horse and Pony Club usually holds fundraisers throughout the year to fund their shows and the trophies and ribbons that the members receive as prizes, but they are hoping that the members can get enough sponsorships that the ride-a-thon alleviates some of that fundraising burden.

PETS OF THE WEEK Available For Adoption At The Wabash County Animal Shelter: 810 Manchester Ave. • 260-563-3511 Sun & Mon: Closed • Tue & Thur: 11am - 5pm • Wed & Fri: 11am - 5pm • Sat: 9am - Noon

The ride-a-thon will be an eight-hour riding event, with different activities for the riders to participate in with their team members. Activities include musical cones, Simon says, an obstacle course and even riding blindfolded. Due to the event being held Easter weekend, Lybarger is even trying to figure out a way to do an Easter egg hunt on horseback. Each participating club member will be the captain of a team containing at least four people. There must be a team member riding at all times during the ride-a-thon. “It’s kind of like the old walk-a-thon for March of Dimes, where every mile you walked, you earned money. Well every hour the members ride, they earn money from their sponsors,” said Lybarger. There will be a half an hour lunch break, but outside of that

time, at least one member from the team must be riding at all times. The only other rule is that you cannot ride the same horse all day. “We’re not going to be on the same horse,” Lybarger told The Paper. “These horses are coming out of hibernation basically, so we don’t want to overwork the horses. The rule is that you will not ride the same horse all doggone day.” The ride-a-thon will be held at Crazy Horse Arena, Urbana. “Shane Wilcox is very generous. He supports us one bazillion percent,” said Lybarger. “We will also be taking free will donations. This event is open to the public. We really appreciate the community coming out and supporting us,” added Lybarger. All Wabash County 4-H Horse and Pony Club members are welcome to participate. They range from third

graders to seniors. The club has three seniors this year, Lybarger’s daughter, Abby, being one of them. Abby is the student president of the Horse and Pony Club. Abby helped organize the ride-a-thon because “she wanted to go out with a bang,” said Lybarger. “Abby wanted to create something that would be sustainable for the kids as a fundraiser. 4H is supported by the generosity of the people,” added Lybarger. This year, the Horse and Pony portion of the 4-H fair will take place the last weekend in June due to Independence Day falling on a Friday. “We always compete on Friday night with our contesting and Saturday with our western show, but this year, with the Fourth of July falling on a Friday night, you cannot be on horseback and rockets red glare going on over your

head,” explained Lybarger. The 4-H Horse and Pony Club’s ultimate goal is to be a staple of 4-H fairs in the future. “We put up our stalls in the spring and we have to have them down and everything cleaned up before the rabbits and poultry can move into that barn. We would like to be permanent there someday,” said Lybarger.

Scott thanks Bussard for years of service

Dear Editor, I wanted to take a moment to publicly thank someone who has meant not only a great deal to this community, but to me as well. Eleven years ago when I started my position with the Wabash County Health Department, as the Environmental Health Specialist, I found myself called upon to inspect more than one home. It was Ron Bussard who took me under his wing and assisted me. Answering numerous questions, our two departments started working together to tackle some difficult situations and homes. I have always been impressed with Ron’s knowledge, his attention to detail, and how much he cared, not only about his job, but the people he was entrusted to help. It has been a true blessing to have the opportunity to work with someone as professional as he is. It is with a heavy heart that I bid him farewell and wish him well during his upcoming retirement. The shoes he is leaving to fill are impossibly big. So Ron Bussard, I thank you. I thank you for your hard work. I thank you for all you have done for the city of Wabash. I thank you for all the assistance you have given to me and to my department. I thank you for being someone I respect and, I thank you for being a trusted colleague and friend. Jennifer Scott Environment al Health Specialist Wabash County Health Department

Eckelbarger selected as Lilly Endowment Scholarship Winner...continued from front page school’s educators when one of their students is chosen. “It feels great, but it’s even better because it’s Emily,” said Keaffaber. “Her leadership has been fantastic. She’s been involved in a lot of things and allowed students to voice their opinions, and she’s very professional about it, which is what I really appreciate. It’s just fantastic.” “Exceptional students from all Wabash County public high schools make the competition very robust for the four-year, fulltuition Lilly E n d o w m e n t C o m m u n i t y Scholarship,” Garber wrote in a press release. Garber noted that

the other 22 applicants and five finalists “are exemplary students who reflect well on themselves and their achievements, as well as the high quality of education in Wabash County.” Garber admits that announcing the winner of the Lilly Endowment Scholarship is bittersweet. While presenting the scholarship to a winner is exciting, it also means telling the other five finalists that they didn’t make the cut. Kylie Echard is a Northfield High School student and the daughter of Julie Echard. She plans to attend Purdue University to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in animal sci-

ence and a minor in agribusiness, eventually hoping to earn a doctorate in veterinary medicine. She is a veteran 4-H member, a part-time employee of Brodbeck Seeds, and she coaches Special Olympics track athletes. She was named Best Math Student and Best Science student in 2011, 2012, and 2013, picking up Best English Student in 2013 as well. Audriana Fuentes is a Manchester High School student who plans to study education in college. She is the daughter of Susan Finney, North Manchester, and Carlos Fuentes, Puerto Rico. She is involved in Science Olympiad, choir,

the son of Nancy and Michael Hanback, North Manchester. He serves on the Student Technology Support Squad, as well as the Crossroads Bank Junior Board of Directors. He worked with Manchester Schools last summer, helping the school district gear up for 1:1 computing by preparing computers for students and troubleshooting system problems. He is a member of FFA, Science Olympiad, and National Honor Society. Hanback hopes to use his education to support the technology needs of small and large businesses, contributing to Indiana’s economic growth. Mariah Mobley is a Manchester High School student. She is the daughter of


William and Julie Mobley, North Manchester. She plans to attend Butler University or Purdue University and major in pharmacy, with a minor in arts. Like Hanback, she is a member of the Crossroads Bank Junior Board of Directors. She is also a member of student government, while pursuing her interests in science, art, and athletics. “Though they do not receive a monetary prize, the five runners-up deserve high praise and may count their status as a finalist as a notable achievement,” Garber wrote in a press

release. The six finalists will be pictured on a billboard off of US 24 to let everyone know of their achievement. Eckelbarger plans to study creative writing and journalism in college, but has yet to decide where she will attend. Along with the scholarship, she received an offer for free room and board at DePauw University, but the school in Bloomington is her likely choice. “I’m thinking IU,” said Eckelbarger. “I really like it there. There are obviously some new opportunities to evaluate, but IU’s top on my list.”

✿ ANY OF THE SIX FINALISTS FOR THIS YEAR’S Lilly Endowment Scholarship would have been a great choice, as each displays a unique set of skills, experience, and ambition. Finalists were, Adam Hanback, Kylie Echard, Thomas Grier, Mariah Mobley, Audriana Fuentes, and Emily Eckelbarger, who was ultimately selected to recieve the full-ride scholarship. (photo provided)

Museum hosts Grand Opening of the Charles R. Showalter Gallery...continued from front page John. “Some of the grand old mansions and homes in this town, it’s so beautiful. The architecture is just incredible.” “It’s amazing that a small community in the middle of Indiana has such a great museum,” said Peggy. “There aren’t many museums like this,” John added. “This is phenomenal.” Three local artists are currently featured in the Charles R. Showalter Gallery. Kristy Church moved to Wabash from North Carolina in 2013. She is a folk artist who takes inspiration from her life on the farm, among other things. Her work has been featured at Dorothy-Ilene in downtown Wabash and was awarded first place in the Charley

Spanish Club, Key Club, and tennis. She also volunteers at camps through her church and Operation Christmas Child through Key Club. In the future, she hopes to improve the quality of life in Indiana through the state’s next generation. Thomas Grier is a Wabash High School student. He is the son of Nathan and Leona Grier, Wabash. Along with several Indiana schools, Grier has his eye on Yale University. He plans to study chemistry and mathematics in college, hoping to one day begin a career as a chemist or pharmacist. He is especially interested in patient care and medical research. Adam Hanback is a Manchester High School student. He is

Creek Arts Festival’s fine arts category last year. Many things can be said about Church’s work, but there is no doubt that she is passionate about color. Britta Gene E. Glass currently lives in Indianapolis, but has roots in Wabash. She graduated from the University of Saint Francis with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and drawing. Her work is a whimsical combination of pen and watercolors. In the future, she hopes to see her work used to illustrate a children’s book, which is currently in the works. Skyler Lawson is a designer, photographer, painter, and filmmaker. He grew up in Wabash County

and graduated from Southwood High School, before receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts in visual communication from Indianapolis’ Herron School of Art and Design. His work combines photography and graphic design, resulting in a modern hybrid of the two disciplines. On July 4, a new set of artists will be featured in the Showalter Gallery, with a subsequent show premiering October 3. Charles R. Showalter’s work will be on permanent display at the museum. A screen in the gallery features more than 100 works of art by the notable illustrator and Wabash native.

If you have any questions, please contact Melissa Wilcox and\or Carla Krom. LADIES NITE OUT CLUB: Warm soup on a cold, rainy day in March was enjoyed by the Ladies Nite Out Club when they met in the home of Helen Dawes. Club President Helen Dawes opened the meeting by reading a poem from the Club’s Handbook: “Take a cup of kindness, Mix it well with love, Add a lot of patience, and Faith in God above.” Sprinkle very gener- ously with Joy and Thanks and Cheer, and you’ll have lots of “angel food” to feast on all the year.” The thought of the month was “The remedy for wrongs is to forget them.” Ruth Summers read two inspirations “Mid Course Corrections” and “Laughter Keeps You Young” based on scriptures from the book of Proverbs. Club members recited the Pledge of Allegiance. Georgia Busch’s birthday was acknowledged. Roll Call was answered by telling what you would do today if you were twenty years younger. The secretary’s and treasurer’s reports were given by Helen Haupert and Jean Fleck. Esther Terrel read a short article entitled “An Eye-to-Eye Moment” that encouraged people to make eye contact with those who serve us. She read “It has been said that the soul shows through your eyes. Use every opportunity to share your spirit with others, for we are still


God’s children in the family of mankind.” Carolyn Everest will host the April meeting with a luncheon in her home. The meeting was closed by reciting the Homemaker’s Creed. SHARP CREEK WILDCAT PRIDE WINNERS drawn on April 3 were Ashlyn Niccum who was nominated by Mrs. Elliott for staying quiet in lunch line and following directions and Karsyn Bratch who was nominated by Mrs. Wynn for always having manners and saying “Have a good day” when she leaves the room.

Gina (Wilson) Krause and her husband Jerry Krause were serving as missionaries in Mali through the Idahobased Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF). When MAF left Mali, the Krause family stayed on as missionaries with Jerry flying for Sahel Aviation. On

April 7, 2013, Jerry and his plane went missing off the coast of West Africa and he has not been heard from since. Since that time the family has been holding on to the hope that Jerry was able to land the plane as the four emergency locator transmitters on board were never activated. This would indicate that the plane did not crash but may have landed in hostile territory. Also no debris from the plane was ever found. The family continues to believe that

Jerry is alive and is being forced to fly for whoever captured him. Please continue to pray for Jerry, his wife Gina, their three daughters, and all of their family members and friends. BRUNCH BUNCH met on April 2 with the following people present: Chad and Peggy Dilling, Phil and Jan Weck, Alma Devore, Doris Mattern, Donna Russell, John and Darla Eads, Helen Dawes, and Eileen

Well, generally, it depends on the child. The average age for starting tennis for players on the professional tour is 6 years old. But you don’t need to be holding a tennis racket to learn the basic skills like coordination, mobility, and agility. Hundreds of other sports can contribute to being a tennis player. It’s tough for the parents and coaches who believe their child has potential, but the message of longterm development is patience. While every child is different and some will develop faster than others, coaches know that tennis development is not a sprint, but a marathon…so let’s have fun on that trip!” PLEASE EMAIL YOUR NEWS AND INFORMATION TO: isaac.triplett@yahoo.c om, or call me at 260274-2261.

How to approach music on your wedding day

Music often plays an important role on festive occasions, and wedding days are no exception. The right music can make a wedding day that much more meaningful, while the wrong music can make a couple’s big event memorable for all the wrong reasons. Though music selection might seem like one of the easier decisions couples must make, those about to tie the knot typically must make a host of music-related decisions regarding their wedding day, including whether to choose a live band or a deejay to perform at their wedding receptions. While the reception is when music might be most on display, couples planning their weddings must think beyond the reception when setting the musical tones for their weddings. Ceremony The ceremony itself often sets the tone for a couple’s wedding day. A beach wedding, for example, often creates a laid back atmosphere, while a ceremony held in a large church or temple often sets a more formal tone. Music played during the ceremony also goes a long way toward setting the tone couples hope to estab-

lish. When choosing music for the ceremony, couples should first consider the venue where they are tying the knot. Some, such as houses of worship, may have rules pertaining to what can and cannot be played inside the venue. Classical, hymnal or processional music often makes the best fit when weddings are taking place in more formal venues. Outdoor weddings tend to give couples more leeway. But in general couples don’t want to choose any music that’s too loud or over-the-top for their ceremonies. Keep in mind that while the music played during the ceremony can set the tone for the day, this music can vary significantly from the music played during the reception. A favorite performer may not be appropriate during the ceremony, but that doesn’t mean the couple can’t dance to that artist’s music during the reception. Live musicians can add a more elegant feel to the ceremony, but such performers also can be costly. Playing prerecorded music may not be as elegant as having a live performer, but it can cost a lot less and still make for an enjoyable day

and evening. Reception Many couples prefer deejays to live bands for their wedding receptions. Deejays can play favorite songs as couples and their guests know them, while bands can only play their own renditions of those songs. Another thing to consider when choosing between a deejay and live band for the reception is the venue itself. Some venues are smaller and unable to accommodate a full band, while others may not have ideal acoustics, making it difficult for a live band to sound as good as they might in a more music-friendly environment. The formality of the event should also come into consideration when choosing between a live band or a deejay for the reception. Deejays spinning the latest top 40 hits may stick out like sore thumbs at especially formal weddings, while a classical orchestra likely won’t fit into the laid back theme of a beach or destination wedding. Couples tying the knot outdoors may need to consider equipment when choosing bands or deejays to play their weddings. For example, some venues do not provide

equipment, such as microphones and speaker systems, to couples for their ceremonies. Renting such equipment can be costly, but couples can often skirt such charges by hiring deejays or bands who lend couples their equipment during the ceremony. Deejays or bands that will loan and set up the necessary sound equipment for outdoor ceremonies merit extra consideration. When discussing music to be played during the reception, couples must consider their own musical tastes as well as those of their guests. A wide range of popular music tends to go best at wedding receptions, as guests are more likely to dance to songs they recognize. Avoid any music that has the potential to offend guests, opting for lighter, happier tunes instead. Whether hiring a band or deejay, couples should make a list of no-play songs or artists and make sure that such lists are included in their contracts. Music plays an important role on couples’ wedding days. Though choosing music for the ceremony and the reception is often fun, couples must take such decisions seriously.

Makeup tips for brides and bridesmaids Few events are more photographed than weddings. Needless to

say, wedding participants, from brides and grooms to the couples’

parents, hope to look their best for the celebrations. Women often find that well-applied cosmetics can enhance their beauty and help ensure they are picture-perfect. The key to wedding makeup is finding a balance between application that will come across well in person and will look good in p h o t o g r a p h s. Professional makeup artists may understand just how heavy a hand to use to apply makeup, but the novice do-it-yourselfer may need some instruction to master wedding day makeup. Very often the key to wedding makeup is simplicity. Brides want their best features enhanced and have the makeup add to their beauty rather than outshine it. Brides want guests to notice

their faces and gowns and not their makeup. Here are some other tips brides can employ in an effort to put their best faces forward. * Begin preparations a few days prior to the wedding. If you will be enhancing your skin color with a spray-tan, do so at least two days prior to the wedding. By the third day the color will set and appear more natural. The same idea applies to your brows. Tweezing, waxing and threading can create irritation and redness. Have your brows professionally shaped a few days before the wedding and then do a minor touch-up with your tweezers the night before. This allows your skin to recover and redness to dissipate. * Start out with well hydrated and moistur-

ized skin. Apply a few layers of moisturizer, preferably one with an SPF if you will be spending time out in the sun. When the moisturizer is completely absorbed and dry, use a skin-priming product that will help keep your foundation locked into place. * Match your foundation color to your natural skin color. When these colors don’t match, your face may look like it is a separate shade from your neck and décolletage. If you will be tanning, then find a shade that matches the tanned color. A foundation that has slightly yellow undertones will even out redness on the face and look better in photos. Apply the foundation thoroughly with a sponge or brush and be sure to blend it well at your neckline. Set the foundation with a matte powder. * Apply concealer to red spots or under eye circles after the foundation. Aim for a creamy, emollient concealer for under the eyes. A peach color that will contrast with the purple and blue tones of your eyelids. Putting on the concealer after the foundation means you will probably need less and won’t look like you’re caked with product. * Use an eyebrow pencil or powder to fill in your brows. This is a must for your wedding day and can really help to frame your eyes. Use small, light flicks of the pencil rather than long strokes to make the color blend naturally. Use a brush to blend in further. Always go a shade or two lighter than your natural color. Finish with a gel that will set the hairs into place. * Complement your lips and eyes. Many brides like to play up

their eyes on their wedding days. If you are going for a dramatic eye, opt for a more neutral lip, and vice versa. Otherwise, you may look like you’re wearing stage makeup. Neutral colors look best for weddings and will not appear dated in photos. Stick to subtle browns and taupe for universal flattery on most eye colors. Use a light hand to apply a neutral shade of light shadow all over the lid. Apply a medium brown to the crease of the eye and a darker brown to the very outer corner, and blend thoroughly. A very light shade of shadow can be used directly under the brow line and toward the inside of the eye to make eyes appear wide and bright. Stick with matte shades of eye shadow, with the exception of one pearlescent shade that is lightly dusted right in the center of the lid from the lash line to the crease. This will add just a touch of luster to catch the light and make eyes sparkle. * Apply liner before mascara, and blend it with a brush. Push the liner into the lash line to make lashes appear thicker. Use mascara to lengthen lashes. Place a makeup sponge behind your lashes when applying mascara so you don’t risk hitting your lids with

the mascara wand. If you will be using false lashes, apply them now. Err on the shorter side for fake lashes, and cut them as needed to fit your eye. Lashes that are too long or full may appear cartoonish and can be uncomfortable to wear. Connect your lashes together with the false ones with another application of mascara. Waterproof mascara will hold up through tears of joy. * Be subtle with blush. Use subtle blush in a peach-pink color to achieve that blushing bride appearance. Smile and apply the blush only to the apples of your cheeks. * Choose a long-lasting lip color that will hold up through kisses and smiles. Lip stains work very well, as they provide that hint of color but wear well during the day. Another helpful tip is to perform a practice run prior to the wedding, taking some photographs to see how the makeup looks in pictures. Cameras and flashes can wash out makeup, so sometimes you need to apply just a little bit more than usual for it to show up on film. Also, certain makeup products will reflect light more. Don’t forget to stock up on oilblotting papers to touch up your face during the day.

2014 BRIDAL GUIDE Tips for newlyweds ready to merge finances

Newlyweds often have a lot on their plates upon returning from their honeymoons. One of the more critical issues newly married couples must address is their finances and how those finances will be combined going forward. Combining finances can be a touchy subject for many couples, especially those who had not given much thought to their finances prior to tying the knot. But there are steps couples can take to make the process of merging finances go more smoothly. *Discuss finances early and often. Allowing finances to be the elephant in the room is a mistake, as couples do not want to begin their lives together treading lightly around an issue as significant as finances. Couples should discuss their

expenditures and spending habits as early as possible, as one of the biggest hurdles newly married couples must clear is coming to grips with one another’s financial habits. If such habits have already been discussed, then developing a financial plan will be much easier once that time comes. When discussing finances, define both short-term and longterm goals and how each of you can adjust your spending habits to make those goals come true. *Pay off any debts. The cost of weddings has skyrocketed over the last several decades, and many newlyweds find themselves in a considerable amount of debt upon returning from their honeymoons. When merging finances, couples should prioritize paying down such debt,

as debt is a significant source of stress for newlyweds and longmarried couples alike. Newly married couples with little or no debt should avoid spending above their means in the months after they get married. Such spending is commonplace, as newly married couples often want to fully furnish their new homes or reward themselves for pulling off their weddings. But new debt can be just as stressful on a marriage as debt from the wedding, so avoid this potentially problematic pitfall by paying down existing debts with your newly merged finances. *Make note of mutual expenses and open a joint account to pay for those expenses. Mutual expenses like mortgage payments, food and utilities should be the responsibility of each partner, and a

joint account should be established to handle such expenses. When opening a joint account, discuss how much and how often each partner will contribute money. One partner might earn considerably more money than another, so work out a reasonable agreement that details how much each partner will contribute each month, and whether such contributions will be made on a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis. *Make concessions for one another. When merging finances, couples often discover that they don’t see eye-to-eye on how each person spends money. Couples who successfully merge their finances often note the importance of making concessions with regard to their partners’ spending on certain hobbies

or luxuries. As long as those hobbies are not putting couples in debt or jeopardizing their financial goals, couples can make concessions so their partners continue to be happy and enjoy their favorite activities. Merging finances is an issue that looms for many newlyweds or couples about to tie the knot. Though it’s not always easy, merging finances early and discussing goals can ensure newlyweds get off on the right financial foot.


Save-the-date card etiquette

Many couples find that tradition reigns supreme when planning a wedding. Certain traditions, such as fathers walking their daughters down the aisle and grooms sharing a dance with their mothers at the reception, are moments to cherish. Though such traditions have withstood the test of time, couples still have some opportunities to embrace relatively recent traditions. One such recent tradition is the save-thedate card, a precursor to wedding invitations that simply lets guests know when the wedding is so they can clear their calendars and be there on a couple’s big day. While save-the-date cards are best kept simple, there are a few rules couples should follow before sending their cards out to loved ones. * Finalize the guest list before sending save-the-date cards. Couples must finalize their guest lists before sending their savethe-date cards. Doing so avoids the potentially messy situation that would no doubt

arise if a person were to receive a save-thedate card but then not make the final guest list. Trimming the guest list often comes down to finances, so couples also want to agree on their budget before sending out their save-the-date cards. Once the guest list has been finalized,

couples can send out their save-the-date cards as soon as possible. * Confirm addresses. Couples should confirm their loved ones’ addresses before mailing any save-thedate cards. This can be easily accomplished by sending mass emails to

friends and family members or contacting individuals via private messages sent on social media sites. Postage to send savethe-date cards can be costly, especially for couples with large guest lists. Confirming addresses can save couples money on potentially wasted postage should the cards be returned because they were sent to the wrong address. In addition, confirming (continued on page 14)

A wedding cake is the piece de resistance of the wedding ceremony. Guests anxiously await the unveiling of the cake near the end of the festivities. Modern cakes are showpieces grander in scale than in years past. As bakers and confectioners hone their skills with

fondant, buttercream and gum paste even further, the results are often impressive, awe-inspiring cake designs. While the look of a wedding cake is certainly important, cakes should not only look good, but taste good as well. Vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting was once the gold standard. But today’s couples are being more adventurous with their wedding cakes and winning rave reviews from guests along the way. The vast scope of wedding cake flavor choices available to brides and grooms is astonishing. Options may range from the traditional to something adventurous and daring. Keeping in mind that couples will need to please the masses, finding a compromise between plain vanilla and a mocha-chile-coconut surprise is essential. Otherwise, they risk an unpopular flavor and a lot of wasted, expensive cake. Some couples shy away from more adventurous cakes

because they fear something chocolately or not white in color will not be well suited to a wedding reception. Such couples should keep in mind that any flavor of cake could be hidden beneath layers of pearly white fondant or royal icing. Therefore, the sky is the limit with regard to flavor combinations. Those who might want to veer from tradition can consider these clever cake combinations. *Lemon cake with vanilla buttercream: Lemons are tart, juicy and refreshing, helping to cleanse the palate after a rich meal. Lemon cake, with its summery feel, is tailor-made for summer weddings. The flavor is popular enough to appeal to many, but just a little different to add an unexpected zip of flavor. *Chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and mocha filling: True chocoholics will be hardpressed to resist such a decadent flavor profile. Chocolate can be

sweet and satisfying and a welcome change from the vanilla cakes commonly served. For traditionalists, the cake can be covered with a white chocolate ganache. Or couples can ask that the cake be adorned with white sugar roses for an eye-appealing contrast. Chocolate cakes covered with autumn hued flowers go over well at fall weddings. *Red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting: Red velvet cake was once a regionally specific staple, but now has grown steadily in popularity across the country. Red velvet has quickly become the new classic, as its vibrant red coloring offers a shock of something different, while the flavor is mild for those who are not comfortable taking risks. The richness and creaminess of cream cheese is irresistible. *White cake with chocolate mousse: Couples who want a bit of chocolate but do not want to be overwhelmed can select a white cake that is filled with light and

rich chocolate mousse. It’s the perfect blend of vanilla and chocolate for guests who enjoy both. *Variety tiers: Those who cannot settle on just one flavor can have different flavors on each tier of their cakes. This gives guests some flavorful variety and enables them to pick their favorite flavor combination. Brides- and groomsto-be who have specific flavors in mind can ask their bakers to include two cupcakes with the wedding cake. Then the couple can enjoy their own mini cakes while the rest of the guests enjoy a more classic cake. In addition, an assortment of cupcakes in lieu of one cake can give guests the opportunity to sample several different flavors. Cakes are a part of many special events, but few cakes are fawned over as much as wedding cakes. Couples can spice things up by choosing a nontraditional flavor combination.

Save-the-date card etiquette... continued from page 13 addresses ensures everyone gets their cards and no one feels left out when relatives receive cards and they don’t because a couple did not have their correct address.

*Keep things appropriate. Save-the-date cards need not be as formal as wedding invitations, but they should still be appropriate. Guests often keep save-the-date

cards on their refrigerators, where people of all ages can see the cards. So while cards can be light-hearted, they should still be family-friendly. For example, photos of

the bride- and groomto-be decked out in swimsuits should be avoided. * Don’t overdo it with information. Save-the-date cards don’t need to include as much information as the more formal invitations, which tend to include information about the ceremony, reception, hotel, directions, and other relevant wedding details. A savethe-date card only needs to include the date of the wedding, including the month, day and year so guests are not confused if the cards are going out well in advance of the wedding day. Couples can include a link to their wedding Web site on the backs of their save-the-date cards, which makes it easier for guests to learn more details about the wedding without inundating them with information too early.

2014 BRIDAL GUIDE Wedding showers continue to break from tradition Rain showers on a wedding day may bring good luck, but they are seldom coveted. However, a different type of shower altogether is often highly anticipated and can help couples feel like they’re one in a million. Wedding showers are gift-giving parties held for couples about to get married. The custom began in the nineteenth century and continues to present day, primarily in North America and Australia. Guests traditionally “shower” the bride-to-be with all the necessities (and some fun extras) that she will need after she ties the knot. These gifts will help the soon-to-be-married couple establish a home together. Bridal showers are steeped in tradition, but today’s bridal showers continue to

veer off the beaten path. Nowadays, bridal showers feature fun and games much like a party having nothing to do with a wedding., a website that aims to help couples plan their weddings and all the events leading up to the big day, identifies these key trends in modern bridal showers. *Couples’ showers: Modern couples that like to be all-inclusive are now planning bridal showers that cater to mixed audiences. Dubbed a “couple shower,” these parties include female and male friends and relatives. Gifts are still the main focus of the event, but they’re varied and include guy-friendly items within the mix of household goods. *Power showers: Many are familiar

with the terms “man cave” and “bromance,” but few may know that there are now wedding showers geared entirely around the groom. Known as “power showers,” these events focus on the groom-to-be, who is showered with a bevy of gadgets and power tools that are certain to stock his future garage. The parties are decidedly more testosterone-friendly and can include golf outings, poker nights or action movie flicks as possible themes. *Destination/activity showers: Rather than having guests hang around a restaurant watching gift after gift get unwrapped, some bridal parties opt to throw an activity shower. These showers are focused around a particular activity. For example,

ladies may be treated to a day at the spa. Other ideas include horseback riding at a stable or a day at the ballpark. Because hosting an activity shower for dozens of people may get expensive, these types of showers may be reserved for only your closest friends and family members. * B r i d e - i nvo l ve d showers: The idea of walking into a room and being surprised by friends and family members is appealing to some brides-to-be but not everyone. Some brides prefer not to be surprised by a shower and actually would like to have a role in the planning of the party. However, this is delicate ground on which to tread, considering there may be differences over where the party is held and even the overall experience of the party. These types

of showers should be discussed before any plans are made, and tasks should be delegated in accordance with those plans. It is customary for a bridal shower to take place before a wedding. But new trends have emerged that are shaking up the way showers are planned and held.

Wedding invitations tip sheet

Wedding invitations often provide guests with a first glimpse of a wedding’s style. Invitations also may serve as the means by which distant friends and relatives find out about a couple’s pending nuptials if a formal announcement was not made. Amid the flourishes of calligraphy and impressive paper stock is information that speaks to the importance of the day when two people will be joining their lives together. Guests will learn not only the time and the place of the wedding from the invitation, but also the formality of the event and the scope of the party that will follow. Couples should keep certain things in mind as they begin to design their wedding invitations. *Have a good idea of your potential guest list. Before shopping for wedding invitations, it is key to have a strong idea of just how big the wedding will be and how many guests will be invited. This way you will know how many invitations you will need. Invitations vary in

price, so cost may be a consideration if your guest list is extensive. *Decide on the formality of the wedding. Will you be hosting a black tie affair, or will it be a casual gathering at the shore? Guests infer many things about the wedding from the invitations, which should match the formality of the event in style and the sentiments expressed. An ornate invitation written with classic wording suggests a more formal affair, while a whimsical invitation with less formal wording could indicate a more laidback event. *Dare to be different by playing with invitation sizes and shapes. Rectangular cards are standard for wedding invitations, but you can explore your creativity by choosing more modern, artsy invitations. Circular invites or scalloped edges can add some whimsy to the wedding mood. Invitations that fold out or are embellished with ribbon or other decorations can be appealing. Just keep in mind that cards that are not the standard shape and

size could be more costly to send. Always have the entire wedding invitation weighed and priced at the post office so you will know what the postage will cost. *Choose a legible font and text color. Your invitation may look beautiful, but it may prove ineffective if it is difficult to read. Do not risk guests misinterpreting the date or the location because they cannot read the writing on the invitation. Steer clear of pastel

or yellow text colors, and remember to have a high contrast between the color of the invitation and the text you are using for easy reading. *Keep the invitation simple. It may be tempting to load the invitation with lots of information, but all you really need are the key pieces of information, such as the “who,” “what,” “where,” and “when.” Crowding the card will take away from its aesthetic appeal.

WABASH FIREFIGHTERS RESPONDED TO A CALL at 4:15 p.m. on Sunday, April 6 concerning a fire at Mini Me Storage, located at 557 N. Cass Street. The fire started in the back of a car, which was parked next to the storage buildings. As of Monday, the cause was unknown. “It’s undetermined at this point,” said Wabash Fire Chief Bob Mullett on Monday. “We were there until early this morning trying to sort it out, and at this point, it’s still under investigation.” Mullett said the damage was “substantial,” and he believes that the northernmost storage building will be a total loss, and likely demolished. “Not being in the business of building something like that, I’m not sure what they’ve got in it. I’m going to guess somewhere between 50 and 75 [thousand] total damage.” Mullett said about the estimated damage. “The insurance adjuster is going to be there tomorrow, and we’ll probably base a lot of our stuff on where they’re at on the value of it.” (photo by Harold Chatlosh)

Leonard Hileman, 62 U.S. Army veteran June 2, 1951 – April 4, 2014

Leonard Hileman, 62, Wabash, died April 4 at 9:05 p.m. at his residence. He was born June 2, 1951 to Leonard Hileman and Evelyn (Schultz) Hileman in Wabash. Leonard graduated from Wabash High School in 1969. He served in the U.S. Army 82nd Airborne Division from 1971-1977. He worked at the Laketon Refinery for 20 years. Leonard was then employed at Warsaw Plating Works, then retired from AM General, Mishawaka in 2011. Lenny was a lifelong fan of the Chicago Cubs and also enjoyed watching the IU Hoosier basketball games. He loved to travel and camp, and spent many summer days on his Harley Davidson. He was quick witted, with a sharp sense of humor, and always had a good joke to share. He spent many nights relaxing with his family and friends around a campfire, sharing stories and laughing, often with Jimmy Buffet in the background. He married Trysh Von Stetina on Sept. 10, 2012; she survives. Leonard is also survived by his son, Ryne (Sandra) Hileman, Akron; four daughters, Melissa (Shannon) Carter, North Manchester; Stephanie (Harry) Bekel, Wabash; Rebecca (Billy) Tolson, Wabash; Meghann (Brian) Foust, North Manchester; two brothers, Ronnie (Aleda) Hileman, Summersville, W.V.; Donnie Hileman, Summersville, W.V., and 19 grandchildren. Funeral services will be held Monday, April 14 at 5 p.m. at the American Legion Post #402, Troyer Road, Laketon. Visitation will be held from 4-5 p.m. at the Post and immediately following the service. Pastor J.P. Freeman will officiate. Memorials may be made to the Wounded Warrior Project, P.O. Box 758517, Topeka, KS 66675.

FIREFIGHTERS EXTINGUISH THE LAST FLAMES coming from the shell of a car, believed to be the source of the fire. The driver of the car was Geanelle Page, and she was accompanied by Cory Mofford. The fire spread quickly to the storage units, and firefighters were forced to cut through the storage unit doors to fight the fire within. The vehicle was sitting between a concrete block building and the northernmost storage unit, which caught fire. “As far as damage goes, I think we’ll have a better idea after tomorrow,” said Chief Mullett.

Wedding invitations tip sheet... continued from page 15 Most stationers will suggest a separate, smaller insert in the wedding invitation for the reception information and response card. Never put information such as where you are registered or “no kids allowed.” This is material better reserved for word of mouth or on a wedding Web site. *Do some math. It is important to know your dates so you can receive the invitations on time, mail

them out, and give guests enough time to respond. A good rule of thumb is to mail out the invitations at least two months before the wedding. Have an RSVP date of no more than three to four weeks before the wedding, giving ample time to the caterers and accommodating anyone who procrastinates in sending in a response. You will need the final headcount in order to confirm seating arrangements and

plan for centerpieces and favors. *Handwrite the envelopes. Your invitation will look more impressive if you address them by hand, rather than printing them off of a computer. If your handwriting is not very neat, consider hiring a professional calligrapher to write out your envelopes. *Make it easy for guests to respond. Be sure to place a stamp on the response card envelope and have

that envelope already addressed with your home address so that guests will have no excuses not to mail a response back promptly. *Always order extra. Mistakes happen, and you may need to send out a few extra invitations that you hadn’t originally counted. Always order extra invitations just to be on the safe side. And don’t forget you will probably want to keep one as a keepsake for yourself.

PRAY FOR JUDGE BOBBY MCCALLEN! Please: pray in the name of Jesus the Christ, for young [Judge] Bobby McCallen to repent from his iniquity, and return the $50,000.00 cash bond, posted to gain my release from jail on Thanksgiving Day, regarding the Celotex property, which I have NO; nor have I ever had any ownership, care, custody or control of.

The Horrifying Cover Letter Niedzwicki explains the importance of a cover letter when applying for careers. by Shannon Niedzwicki When students come to my office to get some help on job searches or résumés,

they often ask, “What is ‘the cover letter?’” or “Do I really need a cover letter? Nobody reads it.” The answer is “Yes! You do need a cover letter!” For every employer who may overlook your cover letter, there are four who

won’t. The goal of the job search is to set yourself apart from the competition; providing a cover letter will do just that. The problem is that job seekers often don’t know what a cover letter actually is, or what one should

include. I’m a huge advocate of cover letters because they offer a great opportunity for you as a job seeker to connect the dots between your résumé and, well, you! The résumé is a more formal, hopefully well-organized masterpiece that sells your accomplishments. A cover letter, on the other hand, gives you free range to elaborate on those accomplishments and maybe even show a bit of your personality. As with any communication, when writing a cover letter, the most important thing to keep in mind is your audience, in this case the employer. Where you are applying, the employer and the job description all come into play. Be direct in your letter and state what position you are applying, where you are applying and

your accomplishments and be sure to use key words from the job description. This is crucial; some companies have HR software that will look for certain words in your cover letter and résumé before moving it on in the process. Key words are the words that they use to describe a certain job, experience, education or

where you found the job opportunity. This should come in the first or second paragraph so there’s no confusion for the reader of your letter. Once that is out of the way, let them know that you are excited about this position or opportunity. Show your passion for your career! Next, you want to elaborate on some of


ideal candidate. This is also a great opportunity to tell your story or make a connection with the company. Perhaps you have a large gap in work history because you stayed at home with your kids. Perhaps you have a personal connection with the company because values it expresses - say, by its (continued on page 22)

your values. This is a

great way to connect with the employer as all those applications are filtered down to the top five that get an interview. I always encourage ending a cover letter by thanking the employer for his or her time and for considering you for the position. A great way to demonstrate your reliability is to state what materials you have enclosed, for example, your résumé and references, as well as your intention to follow up within a specified timeframe. The second part could be scary for some; tackle it if you are confident enough to make that follow-up contact. It can show both your reliability and your determination to get the job. So back to my first question: are cover letters important? Yes! If anything, the cover letter tells that prospective employer that you are professional and willing to go the extra mile. Priceless!

National Public Health week is April 7-13

During National Public Health Week people need to be reminded of the need to be more conscious of a healthy life style that will give ourselves the quality of life we want to live during the span of life on this world. This is the time to remind you that tobacco is the leading preventable cause of disease and death in the U.S. and that we need to fully implement proven public health strategies that can end this epidemic. As described in the 2014 Surgeon General’s Report on Smoking and Health, the past 50 years of tobacco control are a public health success story. Smoking rates among adults and teens are less than half what they were in 1964 when the first Surgeon General’s Report on Smoking and Health was released. These lower smoking rates have saved about 8 million lives in this country. Since 1964, average life expectancy has increased by about 10 years, and a third of that increase is because of lower smoking rates. In the last half-century, we have developed public health strategies that are proven to reduce tobacco use, including: •Affordable and accessible cessation help for all tobacco users who want to quit. •Smoke-free policies

College Success Coalition to hold final meeting The College Success Coalition will hold its final meeting of the season on April 15 at 4 p.m. at Ivy Tech, Wabash. The meeting topic will be adult education and the availability in Wabash County of programs from adults who did not complete a degree or those who are enrolling in a post-secondary education or training.

that protect nonsmokers in all workplaces and public places. •Higher prices on tobacco products. •Hard-hitting massmedia campaigns informing them about the dangers of all kinds of tobacco, including smoking, and providing resources to help them quit. •Funding comprehensive statewide tobacco control programs at CDC-recommended levels. If we dedicate ourselves to fully implementing these proven public health strategies, we can reach a point where tobacco use is rare rather than an epidemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC)

Best Practices for Comprehensive Tobacco Control Programs note that if all states were to maintain CDC-recommended levels of funding, millions of fewer people in the U.S. would smoke and hundreds of thousands of premature tobacco-related deaths would be prevented. According to CDC 5.6 million children alive today will ultimately DIE early from smoking if we do not do more to reduce current smoking rates. That is equal to one child out of every 13 alive in the United States today. The next 50 years if we could help every person that use tobacco quit and keep young people

from starting in the first place, the results would be staggering. Half million premature deaths could be prevented every year. At least $130 billion in direct medical cost for adults could be saved every year. At least 88 million Americans who continue to be exposed to the dangerous chemicals in secondhand smoke could breathe freely. The 5.6 million children alive today who ultimately will die early because of smoking could live to a normal life expectancy. More than 16 million people already have a least one disease from smoking. We could prevent that number from growing more. One out three cancer deaths in this

country could be prevented. At least $156 billion in losses to our economy caused when people get sick and die early from smoking could be prevented. Just because there has been a dramatic decrease in tobacco use the last 50 years does not mean we have succeeded. It means we need to continue to be successful by decreasing the amount of tobacco use and the tobacco related diseases and deaths. The 1-800-QUITNOW free cessation counseling is available for everyone beginning at age 13. There is also local help by calling the Wabash County Tobacco Free Coalition at 260-2742920, located at 41 W. Canal Street, Wabash. Good health leads to a better life. If everyone in Wabash County does everything they can to have a healthier lifestyle, whether it is exercising more, eating healthier, being more aware of what your body needs, or quitting tobacco, we can improve the health quality of the county.

Seventh inning rally lifts Lady Apaches over Knights

With the game being tight the entire time, Wabash used a two run seventh inning for a come from behind 4-3 win. Wabash took the early lead in the first. With Chloe Mullett and Montana Castro on first and third after a Castro single, Destiny Collins flew out to center field, driving home Mullett for a 1-0 lead after one.

Ridenour responds to Harris’ claims of incompetence

Dear Editor, I am writing in response to Chad Harris’ letter written earlier. It is apparently clear that he has no clue as to what is going on in county government, but is quick to come to conclusions and make accusatory statements and generalizations that have no basis for truth. First off, you said you were writing (in concern) over what we did. If we weren’t “concerned,” we wouldn’t have made the temporary loan from one fund to the other fund in order to possibly keep from running short prior to property tax collections. This is nothing new in county government or Wabash County Government. There were times that this has been done in the past (early to mid 2000’s). Thankfully, we have not had to do this for a few years now, but when we do see balances getting low, this fund is more than adequate to help fund the general fund temporarily. You go on to say that the most concerning thing to you was, “The fact that the council and commissioners did not even know the general fund was this low” And to that statement, I would like to ask,

ect. A seventh place finish went to Adam Hanback and Nate Hunter for their “Water Quality” project. Finishing tenth in Divison C were the teams of Brandon

Marcia Goff Coldwell Banker Roth Wehrly Graber 5503 Coventry Lane Fort Wayne, IN 46804 22908

“Where you get so called facts?” I will let you know that each of us councilmen receive a financial statement monthly, and from time to time, we get them more often when we request. I am not 100 percent sure, but I believe the commissioners get them weekly. So yes, Chad Harris, we were all aware of the general fund balance being lower than previous balances, and when we thought it was nec-

essary, we initiated the transfer of funds. You go on to suggest that these problems are a result of political party. I am unaware of each office holder’s political affiliation (I personally couldn’t care less about someone’s name being affiliated with either an R or a D), because I feel for the most part, people that run for office genuinely want to do what is best and right for the community they serve. I know for

a fact that Wabash councilmen and commissioners don’t do it for the money. If you find that hard to believe, check it out for yourself by comparing salaries to comparable counties. Then Chad, you go on to say, “They clearly cannot manage the budget,” and our council has a “lack of fiscal responsibility.” To both, I say, you are full of it. I took the opportunity to look specifically at your (continued on page 26)

State Conservationist shares important Farm Bill information and dates for Hoosier farmers

year – $18.7 billion in conservation over the next five years. According to Hardisty the new bill marks the first time in history that conservation is at the centerpiece. “This bill is a strong investment in the nation’s agriculture and conservation effort, and here in Indiana NRCS and our conservation partners are in a great position to assist farmers who want to improve and sustain their land.” Hardisty explains that farmers will find many positive changes in the bill, including consolidation of several programs under the categories of financial assistance, easements,

and partnerships. “Consolidation of programs gives NRCS an opportunity to streamline our administrative processes and reduce burden on the public and our field staff,” she said. For Indiana farmers, the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) is a key program to improve soil health and address soil erosion, air and water quality, wildlife habitat, and other resource concerns on cropland, forestland, pastureland, and livestock areas. The former Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program (WHIP) is now rolled into EQIP and does not lose its intent to provide private landowners with opportunities to address wildlife habitat resource concerns. The Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) is an excellent opportunity for Hoosiers to improve land stewardship on their farm. The program encourages participants to address resource concerns in a comprehensive manner by improving, maintaining and managing existing conservation activities and undertaking additional conservation activities. Nationally, CSP is reauthorized to enroll 10 million acres annually. Indiana cur-

NRCS will continue to help farmers and other landowners to protect, restore and enhance wetlands. WRE incorporates the purposes of the former Wetland Reserve Program (WRP). The new Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) consolidates existing programs into one that will support projects that improve soil health, water quality, water quantity, air quality, and/or wildlife habitat in a specific area or region. Here in Indiana those programs include: C o o p e r a t i v e Conservation Partnership Initiative (CCPI), Agricultural Water Enhancement Program (AWEP), and Great Lakes Basin Program. With this new focus on regional conservation priorities NRCS will have the opportunity to work with partners to obtain additional technical assistance and target resources to areas of greatest environmental concern. The Farm Bill relinks conservation compliance provisions to crop insurance premium subsidies. In addition to identifying crop insurance as a covered program, the Farm Bill defines special timelines and mit-

igation authority. NRCS also has a new opportunity to assist farmers with wetland conservation compliance issues on their farms by establishing mitigation banking opportunities for program participants. Other changes include opportunities and incentives for beginning farmers, along with other historically underserved farmers which now includes military veterans and “no-year” funding, which provides the agency the opportunity to focus more directly on the conservation planning process and more deliberate obligation of funding Hardisty says it is important for Hoosier farmers to be aware of key dates that are coming up. She also stresses that it is important to work with the local district conservationist and have a conservation plan in place before applying for any Farm Bill program. Because the signing of the new farm bill occurred in February, Indiana’s previous announcement of the EQIP special initiatives signup deadline (February 21st) and ranking process was delayed. Below are key dates for rollout. (Please note, these dates are projected

and subject to change.) •EQIP– Applications submitted by May 16, 2014 will be evaluated to be considered for funding in fiscal year 2014. Applications received after that date will be accepted and evaluated for future rounds of funding. •CSP – Applicants can expect to be notified of funding decisions by early June. •CSP — Contracts for 2010-01 and 2010-02 sign-ups will have an opportunity to reenroll for an additional five years, under certain conditions and specified criteria. NRCS will begin implementing this option by Sept. 30. •ACEP – Applications for agricultural land easements will begin to be accepted by April 30, with applicants notified of funding/enrollment decisions by July 31, and contracts/agreements in August. Wetland Reserve Easement applications are currently being accepted. Funding decisions are also expected by July 31. •RCPP – A request for proposals will be issued in May, with proposal selection and agreements with partners is expected by September 30th.

Ridenour responds to Harris’ claims of incompetence... continued from page 25 property taxes. Your property tax bill has gone from $ 945.48 in 2006 to $ 181.48 in 2014, with one of the in between years being $0 and another being $5. Additionally, during the time span from 2006 to 2014 the percentage of those property tax dollars has decreased for the portion going to Wabash County Government and

increased for other taxing units. You further go on to say, “We need to be careful of what we do with that money.” Chad, you go to any public information site with statistics and compare Wabash County with any like county and look at budgets, salaries, spending per capita and you will see that Wabash County is

very careful and has been for many years, and the numbers don’t lie. I would suggest that since you are full of ideas and accusations, that you perhaps attend a council meeting and also verbalize your unwarranted rants and raves during the portion of our meetings where public comment is always wel-

Landowners who have a long-term interest in protecting their land may participate in the A g r i c u l t u r a l Conservation Easement Program (ACEP), which provides assistance to help conserve agricultural lands and wetlands. ACEP consolidates the former easement programs (Wetlands Reserve Program, Grassland Reserve Program, and Farm and Ranchland Protection Program), with the exception of Healthy Forest Reserve Program (HFRP). ACEP is divided into two categories, Agricultural Land Easements (ALE) and Wetland R e s e r v e Enhancements (WRE). ALE protects the agricultural use and conservation values of farmland. NRCS provides financial assistance to eligible partners for purchasing easements and those partners will work directly with farmers to permanently protect their working agricultural land.

It’s always easy to play Monday morning quarterback and complain about the way things are done, but it’s quite another to make your voice heard during discussions and be part of solutions rather than adding to the problems. If you have any further comments or questions for myself personally, I would be more than glad to answer them in person. I am in the phone book. In closing, I want to make you aware these are my opinions only and I do not attempt to speak for the other councilmen, commissioners or elected officials. Like I said, your letter has no basis for truth and I felt it was directed towards myself since I am on the council. Mike Ridenour

Mark Lowry and The Martins to perform at the Honeywell Center April 26 It’s been talked about for years and is now finally coming to pass. Mark Lowry and gospel music legends The Martins are hitting the road together for the first time. This long awaited concert event will come to Wabash on Saturday, April 26 at 7:30 p.m. “It’s a lifelong dream,” says Mark about touring with The Martins. “It’s going to be an exciting year, just getting to hear them sing every night.” The history between Mark and sibling trio Joyce, Jonathan and Judy Martin spans more than two decades and can be traced back to a cassette tape The Martins gave him at

a national convention in 1992. Mark and fellow Gaither vocal band-mate Michael English were so impressed, they insisted Gloria Gaither listen to an impromptu audition of the group, which they held in the women’s restroom. Gloria then told husband Bill and the rest is history as the Gaithers helped introduce The Martins to the world. This exciting musical evening will be held Saturday, April 26 at the Honeywell Center. The evening begins at 7:30 p.m. Complete information may be obtained by visiting, or

w w w. m a r t i n s o n Renowned pianist Stan Whitmire will also accompany Mark and The Martins on tour, and according to Lowry, fans can expect a little of everything during this special evening. “We’re going to mix it up. The Martins and I will be singing together. I’ll be kicking Jonathan out and singing with just the sisters on a couple songs. Whatever it takes to make the night a success, we’re going to do!” says Mark. Make plans now to join Mark Lowry and The Martins on Saturday, April 26 at the Honeywell Center.

His hits include “It Was Almost Like A Song,” “Smoky Mountain Rain,” “(There’s No) Gettin’ Over Me,” “I Wouldn’t Have Missed It For the World,” “Any Day Now” and “Stranger In My House.” Milsap, a singer and pianist, was one of country music’s first crossover stars.

Many of his songs found success with both country and pop audiences because of their country, R&B, blues, and rock and roll influences.

An artistic genius, raised on a tree farm in Indiana by a callous father, Rich wrestled all of his life with the brokenness and crippling insecurity born of his childhood. A lover of Jesus and a rebel in the church, Rich refused to let his struggles with his own darkness tear him away from a God he was determined to love. Rich desired most of all to live a life of honest and reckless faith amidst a culture of religion and conformity.

The Prime Suspects play double-birthday-bash at Harry’s Old Kettle Saloon

COUPLES TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE DANCE FLOOR during The Prime Suspects’ cover of classic Beatles tunes at Harry’s Old Kettle Saloon on Saturday, March 29. The band, which has been together for 15 years, celebrated the birthday of rhythm guitar player, Richard Leach, as well as that of Kettle co-owner Judy Kilmer, at the stroke of midnight. (photo by Eric Stearley) by Eric Stearley On Saturday, March 29, classic rock cover band The Prime Suspects played a four-hour show at Harry’s Old Kettle Saloon. At the stroke of midnight, co-owner Judy Kilmer and rhythm guitar player Richard Leach celebrated their birthdays together. “I’ve never met someone with the same birthday as me,” said Leach. “I know Eric Clapton’s birthday is the 30th.” Clapton was one of many artists covered by the band over the course of the evening. From Bob Dylan to ZZ Top, John Mellancamp to the Beatles, and R.E.M. to The Black Crowes, The Prime Suspects kept the audience guessing and dancing as they played into the late hours of the

night. Leach, a Wabash resident, played in different local bands in the 80s and 90s, including Late Night Arrival and Midnight Magic Band. He first met members of his current band in 1999 in Hartford City. “Basically, my audition was in the guy’s house,” said Leach. “We jammed around for a little bit and they said, ‘What do you think,’ and I said, ‘Well, what do you think,’ and they said, ‘Ya, we like you.” The group meshed well and the band was born. Leach, along with drummer Doug Hutson and bass guitar player Jerry Lents, were part of that original group. They didn’t have the name at the time, and Richard jokingly said that they looked like the “usual suspects.” The name stuck and the band was born.

After going through a few lead guitar players, they found Willis Yancey, and the current lineup was solidified. “Our lead guitarist is an encyclopedia of music,” said Leach. “He’s been playing since he was 8 years old. He’s real, real good.” Eventually, the band changed its name to The Prime Suspects. The band now travels around northern Indiana, playing 35-40 shows, mostly bars and clubs, on Saturday nights. “We’re a bar and club band, a rock and roll, right up in your face type of band,” said Leach. “We played at Dye’s last year, stuffed in that little corner, and it was one of our best gigs. People were dancing in the aisles. We adapt.” While they like playing in small, inti-

mate venues, none of the band members will deny that they enjoyed opening for Foghat last year at Brandt’s Harley Davidson in Marion. “You go from a little bar stuffed in a cor-

ner most of the time, and I run the sound from the stage, and here you just plug in and everybody controls all that,” Leach said. “The sound was super great. It was fun, you know. It was like, ‘I’d kind of like to do this for a living.’” Playing music, however, doesn’t exactly pay the bills. “You don’t make any money at it,” said Leach. “You just kind of break even. We just like entertaining. You may go and have a night that’s deader than a doornail, but as long as nobody’s leaving because you sound like a stray cat…and we’re not the best band, but we’re a good band, or we wouldn’t be surviving for this long.” Leach retired in September, but the other three band members continue to work full-time jobs. Still, all four dedicate most Saturday nights to their love of live performance and clas-

Friday night and gets off at 7 [a.m.] Saturday morning,” said Leach. “Then it’s like doing another night at work. Some shows are from 10 to 2 in the morning. It’s like he’s doing 7 working nights. But if he didn’t like it, he wouldn’t be doing it.” Watching Yancey perform, there’s no doubt that he loves to play guitar.

sic rock. “Last year was our best year ever,” said Leach, who takes care of booking gigs for the band. “I think we did 38 or 39 shows. I don’t know if you’d call it a hobby anymore or not. It’s just something I’ve done every Saturday for so many years. It’s just like a second job.” The band has regular clientele that they’ve played for two or three times a year since 1999. They’ve got nearly 20 shows booked for this year already. The band’s next performance is at The Other Side, in Peru on April 12. Though Leach says he would play every Friday and Saturday night if he could, his band mates’ jobs make it impossible. They are taking it a little slower this year. Leach says they’re making it a goal to take one Saturday off each month to rest. “The lead guitarist, if he works 6 days, he goes in at 11 [p.m.] on

The Prime Suspects play double-birthday-bash at Harry’s Old Kettle Saloon...continued from page 29 blues, trying to channel his favorite guitar player, Stevie Ray Vaughn. Doug Hutson brings the rhythm on his four-piece Ludwig drum set. Playing drums since he was 11, Hutson has 47 years of experience with sticks in his hands. Leach lays the melodic backdrop, playing rhythm guitar on his Gibson Les Paul. Leach has been playing music for as long as Hutson, first getting his hands on a guitar at age 16. He has always looked up to R.E.O Speedwagon’s Gary Richrath. Jerry Lents laid down the bass notes on his Fender Telecaster Bass guitar during the April 29th show. His favorite

instrument, however, is his viola bass. Interestingly, this is also the choice instrument of his favorite musician, Paul McCartney. Apparently the Kettle’s crowd was full of McCartney fans as well. The small dance floor quickly filled with couples as the band began a set of three Beatles songs toward the end of the night. Just as every show eventually comes to an end, so too does every band. This is something that Leach thinks about often. “I’ve been with these guys for 15 years, I’ve done it for 35 years, and the one thing I’ve thought about is, I’m 63 years old. It’s gotta end sometime,” said Leach. “Whether it’s

this year, next year…but I’m determined not to let it end on bad terms. I’ve been giving that a lot of thought. When it’s gonna end and how it’s gonna end.” One thing that’s certain is that music, and specifically playing guitar, has left an unmistakable mark on Leach. “From girlfriends, good or bad, marriages, all my friends, you know, it’s just interwoven in my life, and it still is,” said Leach. “It could have been a lot different without a guitar. I could have been a policeman or a fireman or something,” he said with a chuckle. This summer, Leach will reunite with the friend who first put an electric

guitar in his hands nearly five decades ago. His friend, Mike, is traveling from California to their 45year class reunion in July. Leach hasn’t seen Mike since graduation, and will finally get the chance to thank him for that simple gesture so many years ago. “I went out and bought an electric guitar after that,” Leach said. The rest, they say, is history. This may be the band’s last year together, or they may go on to play for years to come. No one is really sure what the future holds for the four middle-aged rock and roll enthusiasts who have spent nearly every weekend together for the past 15 years. Regardless of when or how it finally comes to an end, they clearly love what they do. “The whole bottom line of why we do it is, there ain’t nothing like going out and playing a small bar, and your audience is having a good time laughing and clapping. That’s what it’s all about,” said Leach.

Department of Child Services now recruiting foster parents

Informational meetings are now being set during Child Abuse Prevention Month.

The Wabash County office of the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS) is always looking for adults with a strong desire to invest in the future. These potential foster parents are selfless caregivers willing to provide temporary supervision and stability for children during a challenging time in the children’s lives. Since April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, the Wabash County DCS office has scheduled three informational meetings for prospective foster parents on Saturday, April 12 in Wabash. “When children are unable to remain in their homes safely, we first look for fit and willing relatives to care for them,” said Margery Justice, director of the Wabash County DCS office. “When relatives are not able to care for a child, we rely on good foster parents to temporarily care for a child in need. An increase in the number of foster homes within our community will allow children to remain within their school district and to utilize local service providers to work

with the family.” Foster parents can be stay-at-home parents or they can work outside the home. They may rent or own their own house, apartment or condominium, as long as it meets safety standards. Besides providing food and shelter, they assist with practical needs like helping with visits with the child’s family, taking them to any needed therapy sessions, medical and other appointments and ensuring there are extra-curricular activities. Local foster parents are especially needed so school-age children removed from their homes can continue to attend their own school and maintain contact with their friends. Those willing to foster teenagers or sibling groups are particularly desired. Foster care specialists will lead each informational meeting from the Wabash County DCS office. Foster parent responsibilities will be discussed as well as the licensing process, including the home study. In addition, a licensed foster parent will be on hand to answer questions. A willingness to step up and help a child in need is the most important prerequisite for becoming a foster parent.

The April 12 informational meetings will take place at the Wabash County DCS office, 89 West Canal Street in Wabash. Thirty-minute meetings will begin at 10 a.m., 10:45 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. To help increase awareness about child abuse prevention during National Child Abuse Prevention Month, the Wabash County DCS office is coordinating a special Pinwheels for Prevention event April 8.

International Fair savors, celebrates Manchester’s cultural diversity Katrin Muser will share a taste and glimpse of her hometown in Germany with visitors to the M a n c h e s t e r U n i v e r s i t y International Fair on Sunday, April 13. The senior will don a dirndl and divulge stories of life in her hometown of Dettenhausen at the popular event that biennially attracts 800 to 1,000 visitors to the North Manchester campus. Manchester celebrates its international diversity with its neighbors with an extravaganza of dance, food, music, children’s activities, exhibits and conversation. Admission is free for the 12—4 p.m. event in the Physical Education and Recreation Center (PERC). A popular treat of the afternoon: samplings of international students’ favorite dishes from around the world, for a nominal fee. The students prepare the food in the University’s

NORTHFIELD FFA TRACTOR DAY: After waiting for the weather to warm up, Northfield students were finally able to celebrate Tractor Day, which usually is one of the days of FFA week. The cold weather kept the tractors at home, but a few students took advantage of the warm days last week and brought their tractors to school. (photo by Emily Armentrout)

kitchen with assistance from Chef Chris and Chartwell’s food service personnel. “I will be making linsen und spätzle, a dish very typical to the Swabian region (southwest) of Germany,” said Muser, who will receive a bachelor’s degree in sport management and business this May. “The lentils are almost cooked like a stew with some vegetables, bacon and sausages. The dish is very hearty and my mom cooks it a lot when it is cold and unpleasant outside.” Muser also is making SchwarzwälderKirsch Trifle, a Black forest trifle. Among dozens of dishes on the International Fair menu are a Vietnamese tofu dessert (Tau Hu Nuoc Duong), an Ethiopian spicy meat dish (kitfo) and a Bangladeshi mashed eggplant (Baingan bharta). Visitors also will discover food from Bangladesh, Ecuador,

France, Greece, Holland, India, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Lebanon, Mexico, Nigeria, Norway, Palestine, South Korea, Thailand, Uganda, Vietnam and the USA. Twenty countries from six continents will be represented at the International Fair, says Michael Dixon, MU director of intercultural services. The event intentionally ignites dialogues that break racial, ethnic, language and national origin boundaries, he notes. “How can you get more international than a fair that encompasses various expressions of culture through dance and various art forms, music, food and cross-cultural communication?” Muser will wear a dirndl, a female version of lederhosen. The dirndl is more typical for the Bavarian area “but many girls like to wear theirs to go to Stuttgarter Wasen, the Swabian spring

University’s undergraduate campus in North Manchester. In addition, about 25 percent of the students enrolled in the College of Pharmacy are international, representing 14 countries. The four-year professional program on MU’s Fort Wayne campus leads to a

version of Oktoberfest,” said Muser, a Dean’s List and Research Symposium scholar who learned about Manchester as an exchange student at Tippecanoe Valley High School. Students from 24 countries attend M a n c h e s t e r

Beacon Credit Union to donate to charities with most community votes Project Spotlight has returned for its fourth annual charitable giving cam-

paign! Project Spotlight is a program created by Beacon Credit Union with the hope that individuals and organizations would be inspired to reach out and serve those living and working around them. The communities will nominate and vote on

the local charities they feel deserve support. You may nominate a local project or organization by visiting your local Beacon branch. We will receive nominations until June 30. Then, we open up the voting process and have each community vote to

support their favorite organization. Voting is scheduled to run Aug. 1 through Sept. 30 and will take place both online and in our branches. At the end of the voting process, the project in each community receiving the most votes will win $1,000 of funding from

Beacon Credit Union. The second place winners in each community will receive $500 and the third place winners in each community will receive $250. Stop into your local Beacon Credit Union branch to nominate an organization today.

FAME director thanks festival contributors Dear Editor, The organizing committee for the Wabash FAME Festival would like to thank the many individuals, organizations, businesses, and foundations in Wabash County who helped make this year’s festival on March 22 a success. We had a very successful, fun-filled, educational day for the students and their families. We greatly appreciate the Honeywell Center staff and the H o n e y w e l l Foundation for part-

nering with us to provide the facility for our festival. We are very fortunate to have such a state-of-the-art facility in our community and visionary employees who are willing to provide arts opportunities for the youth in our community. The Honeywell staff helps make the day run smoothly. To the teachers who take extra time to prepare their students for performances or art displays, we thank you for seeing the value in your students’ participation in the festival. Teachers often spend many extra hours getting students ready to share in this program. Special thanks to the art teachers, who organized and prepared materials for the popular Imaginarium make-ittake-it area. Besides the school performing groups, we appreciate the inclusion of several community groups and private teachers who chose to join us. A festival of this size requires work from a lot of volun-

teers. Thanks to all of the schools, organizations, and individuals who help us find workers for the many jobs at the festival. From set up on Friday afternoon to tear down on Saturday afternoon, Wabash FAME had many people willing to help us get the jobs done. We couldn’t do the festival without you! We appreciate the advertising support that we receive in our community. This year’s media coverage included 105.9 THE BASH, as well as The Paper of Wabash County and Wabash Plain Dealer. We also had coverage in the Manchester News Journal. Thanks to the Wabash Chamber of Commerce for allowing us to advertise in your weekly newsletter and the Convention and Visitors Bureau for having us on your website. To the many people who gave monetary support for the festival, we appreciate your vote of confi-

dence in the work we do. Your generosity has helped us follow our mission to provide this festival free-ofcharge for the families in our community. We had over 2100 people attend this year. We’d like to recognize our major corporate and foundation donors: Ford Meter Box Foundation, Hidden Hollows Retreat and A l p e n t r a u m Ensemble, Honeywell Foundation, Inc., REMC Operation Round-UP, Wabash Cannonball Chili for Charity, Wabash County Arts Council, and Wabash County United Fund. Mark your calendars for next year’s FAME Festival on Saturday, April 18. Our cultural focus will be China. We are hoping to add another exciting project to our programming for that festival. Thanks, Wabash, for your support! Judy Ward Wabash Festival Director
