Lutheran Air II finds home at Wabash Municipal Airport

by Ashley Flynn Lutheran Hospital, Fort Wayne, recently announced their investment in a second medical helicopter. The Lutheran Air II will be housed in a hangar at Wabash Municipal Airport, and construction of the hangar is expected to be completed in October. A ceremonial groundbreaking was held last week at the airport. Leaders from the city and county, the Hangerman Group, Lutheran Hospital and local first responders showed up for the event. “I’m excited about having a medical helicopter based in Wabash,” said Mayor Robert Vanlandingham. “Our local fire department and medical personnel at Wabash County Hospital provide excellent on-the-ground service for our community. The presence of the helicopter will allow us quicker access to more specialized medical facilities when needed.” Lutheran currently has one helicopter that serves the needs of Lutheran’s 23county region. Because of increasing demand for the Lutheran Air helicopter, the company decided to invest in a second aircraft. “Last year we were turning down requests for the helicopter on a monthly basis, and it caused us to look at the demand for the helicopter. Based on those request that we couldn’t meet and where they were coming from, this is where we are investing our second aircraft,” said Brian Bauer, chief executive officer of the Lutheran Health Network and Lutheran Hospital. The Lutheran Air II, an EC135 aircraft, will have the ability to serve a nearly 100-mile radius around Wabash. The flight time from Wabash to Fort Wayne is approximately 16-18 minutes. The new aircraft will create over 10 new positions in Wabash County, which include pilots, flight mechanics and medical crewmembers. “Healthcare is a target industry of

Wabash County,” said Bill Konyha, president and chief executive officer of the Economic Development Group of Wabash County. “Investments in healthcare and related businesses result in the creation of some of the highest paying jobs in the area. We view this project as critical healthcare infrastructure supporting Wabash County Hospital and our residents.” The Hangarman Group, the company Lutheran is contracting to build the hangar, is also planning to hire as many Wabash area contractors and suppliers as possible. Not only does the helicopter and hangar bring jobs to the community, but also Wabash citizens and surrounding communities will have quicker access to specialized health care. “This is going to enhance the medical procedures we already have in place not only for this community and county, but the entire region. There are just times when we need that extra care we can’t provide here, and we need to have quicker access to medical care,” said Mayor Vanlandingham. Mr. Bauer said the decision to base the aircraft in Wabash made a lot of sense from a location standpoint. “The decision to base our new helicopter in this regionally significant location was made easier because of the strong commitment Wabash has always made to improving the lives of its residents, especially those living in rural areas,” said Bauer. “We are dedicated to supporting first responders and caregivers throughout northeastern Indiana by providing them with the tools necessary to get their patients the highest level of care available as quickly and safely as possible.” Bauer later added, “We want to be away from our main facility so we can reach out and provide care to patients a little further away from Lutheran Hospital, but more than that, in our (continued on page 5)

Roann Covered Bridge festival from Sept. 5-8

THE ROANN COVERED BRIDGE FESTIVAL will hold its annual pancake and sausage breakfast from 7-10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7 in the bridge. (photo by Kalie Ammons) by Kalie Ammons “How does this little town do it?” Donna Harman hears this question on the regular when she talks about the Roann Covered Bridge Festival. The festival is a huge event that draws a crowd every year. “I’ve been helping with this festival for, I don’t know, 30-something years. We’ve been living in the Roann area for 38 years. …I really enjoy it and it’s so much fun,” Harman, the festival organizer, told The Paper. So what will be drawing the crowd this year? The festival is packed with activities as always, ranging from tractor shows to Euchre. The festival starts Thursday, Sept. 5 at 8 a.m. with arts and crafts registration until noon. Then from 5-10 p.m. the vendors open and the

rides begin. “Thursday’s new event this year is a tractor rodeo. Farmers of the area are doing a farm truck and semi-farm truck pull at the pull field this year. And they’ve done a lot of improvements this year for the track down there. The put up a barricade for safety purposes,” explains Harman. Another new attraction this year, organized by Cameron Huffman, is “Olde Town,” a set up by the cabins in Roann that will bring festival goers to a simpler time. There will be rug looping and candle making as participants look inside the cabin and listen to the music of Liza and Mark Woolever, who will be on the streets Saturday “with their oldtime tunes and instruments.” “Another big attraction, which we (continued on page 5)

Midwest sees steepest gas price hikes in the country Fort Wayne has highest single day average price hike CHICAGO – When gasoline prices go up in your neighborhood it’s hard to imagine that anyone else has it worse. Who’s got the worst price volatility in the country? Which markets see the steepest price hikes? Where do the gas stations and convenience stores change the prices most frequently? GasBuddy found the answers. “While major markets like LA, NY and Chicago get much of the attention and criticism, they’re not even in the top 20 among cities that see the steepest price

hikes,” says Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy. “The steep price hikes recorded in more than 25 cities in the Midwest dwarf the increases seen in the rest of the country. And nowhere is it worse than Fort Wayne, Ind. So far this year, Fort Wayne has recorded the highest single day average price hike—34 cents per gallon—among its three highest daily changes. It is followed by: Indianapolis, (.32); Dayton, Ohio (.31); Columbus, Ohio (.30) and Toledo, Ohio (.28),” said DeHaan. He emphasized that the figures represent the average of the

three highest singleday price spikes and that Midwesterners have seen 30+ cent increases often enough to know they’re not a statistical anomaly. On the west coast, Bakersfield, Calif. had the largest increase in its single-day prices (taking the average of the highest three daily spikes) with a nine-cent gain. In the Rocky Mountains region, Colorado Springs led the list with an 11-cent single day spike. The Gulf Coast region’s highest single-day spike was recorded in Lubbock Texas (14 cents per gal.) while on the East Coast it was Myrtle Beach, S.C. posting an

Caring Hands Health & Rehab receives national accreditation

Peru - Caring Hands Health & Rehabilitation Center, a TLC Management facility, recently earned the 2013 Providigm Quality Assurance and P e r f o r m a n c e Improvement (QAPI) Accreditation as a skilled nursing facility. This quarterly recognition illustrates that Caring Hands Health and Rehab is actively performing quality assurance and performance improvement activities. QAPI Accreditation demonstrates that a facility is continually assessing residents’ quality of life with regard to concerns such as pain, dignity, respect for resident choice and quality of care problems such as whether there are enough staff to meet resident needs, weight loss, infections, rehabilitation following acute injury or illness and prevention of readmissions to hospital. “Caring Hands Health and Rehabilitation is proud to have received Providigm’s Quality Assurance and Performance I m p r ove m e n t Accreditation. We strive to identify and improve care for the life of our residents. This award honors the hard work and dedication our staff puts forward every day to make a difference in the lives of our residents,” said Joshua Davis,

every other region in the country,” DeHaan noted, “and it’s the downside of that rollercoaster ride that consumers easily forget. We complain about the higher highs, but we’re quiet when we benefit from

11-cent increase to lead that region. GasBuddy examined ‘frequency of price changes’ too and found that the Midwest and West Coast regions led the way with the number of days that prices changed a penny or more per gallon. Nationwide, stations in Stockton, Calif. have posted 72 days of price changes over a penny per gallon since Jan. 1, while Jackson, Miss., Memphis, Tenn. and New Haven, Conn. have all recorded 67 increases of one-cent or more. “While small cities lead the way among markets with the steepest price spikes, we saw some larger Midwestern cities like Chicago, Milwaukee and Detroit positioned prominently among

Roann Covered Bridge festival... continued from front page hear they are retiring, but our biggest attraction of Thursday is Spike and the Bulldogs. This might be your last chance to see them. On Friday night we’re having God’s Country,” said Harman. The car show cruise-in will take place on Friday night. This is the cruise-in’s fourth year, and has so far topped out with the most preregistrations the festival has seen. There are usually around 50 cars, but this year looks like it’s going to be packed. There will be a little something for the country music fans out there, too. The Roann festival does its best to have an array of entertainment to

spark all interests. “Sugar Shot is playing on Saturday night, and they’re a group out of Fort Wayne, and they have an awesome fiddle player. Two ladies are the lead singers and they’re kind of country rock,” Harman explains. All entertainment will be in the community building in the case of rain. Of course, Roann R i c h v a l l e y Tenderloins will be making their annual appearance at the festival. Remember to stop and grab one to complete your festival experience. All of the proceeds from the Roann Covered Bridge Festival go back into the funds for the next

year. The festival is made possible by volunteers who meet 10 months out of the year to plan and organize the events. “All the advertising and what we get from vendor rental space goes into the festival funds for entertainment, like this year we’re doing upgrades. So we’re going to upgrade all of our electricity to meet the state rules. We have a little expense for that this year so we don’t get shut down. But then it’s all put back into the festival,” said Harman. The people that make all of this possible are as follows: Donna Harman— contact person for entertainment, coordinating information

for flyer and festival organizer. Beckie Elliot— chairman of vendors, makes contact with them after receiving applications and lays out the map for vendor parking. Carol Long and LuAnn Layman— Plan the activities for Prince & Princess, Cutie King & Queen, kids games, pet parade, Minute-towin-it and more. Marsha Haffner— treasurer and does a great job keeping the records correct. C a m e r o n Huffman—joined at the follow up meeting last fall with many exciting ideas. Valerie Doud and Ann Meyer—chairmen for the parade

that will take place on Saturday at 2 p.m. This year’s theme is “Historic Roann,” and will be followed with free Schwan’s ice cream. With such dedicated volunteers making the festival so enjoyable each year, Harman wonders about the future: “I hope the next generation takes it over.” So bring the kids and have an activity packed weekend in Roann. Maybe one day they will be asking Spike and the Bull Dogs to come out of retirement and play another show while they grab a tenderloin at the Roann Covered Bridge Festival.

Lutheran Air II finds home... continued from front page meeting with Mayor Vanlandingham in Wabash, it was a community that has a lot of pride in itself and has invested a lot in itself. The partnership with Wabash felt right.”

M a y o r Vanlandingham said he and Mr. Bauer created a partnership between the city and hospital. “It didn’t take long for me to spend some time with Brian

Bauer and his staff and know and understand they were sincere. They wanted this to happen. We had a lot of good conversation on why they wanted it to happen, but the most positive

thing is they want to be here,” Mayor Vanlandingham said. “I think one of the deciding factors was the fact that in this county and government officials, county officials and

AgVenture McKillip Seeds hires Chad Ealing

Wabash, Indianabased AgVenture McKillip Seeds has hired Chad Ealing, Roanoke, to serve farmers across east central Indiana and western Ohio as an AgVenture Yield Specialist. A g V e n t u r e McKillip Seeds Sales and Marketing Manager, Mitch Snyder said, “We’re a very pleased to bring Chad on as an AgVenture Yield Specialist. Actually, our family business, McKillip Seeds was a customer of Chad’s in his previous role.

We look for him to be a solid asset to every customer – helping them achieve greater profitability on every acre.” Ealing has worked together with many area farmers over the

past four years with another regional family owned and operated business. He worked out of Fort Wayne for a truck and rail scale business. Prior to that, he spent nearly 10 years working in various roles advancing his sales and proficiency skills. He said, “AgVenture McKillip Seeds is a perfect fit for me – allowing me to work closely and throughout the year with my c u s t o m e r s . Maximizing yield has so many components. I look forward to putting our Maximum Profit SystemTM (MPS) to work for my customers.” MPS is an intensive, systemsbased approach to dramatically increasing yield, lowering cost per bushel and helping growers maximize yield on every acre. “MPS provides our customers with practical tools and unique approaches to managing the crop for maximum performance.” Ealing concluded,

“I see the passion this family business has for their customers and for doing things right. I am committed to bringing value to McKillip Seeds and to every customer.” Ealing grew up near Ossian, Ind., and attended Norwell High School. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business management from University of Phoenix. He currently resides at Roanoke with his wife, Brooke, and their young son. AgVenture, Inc. is the nation’s largest network of independently owned regional seed companies. Based in Kentland, Ind., AgVenture pro-

vides this growing network of independently owned and managed seed business owners with seed products meeting exacting standards for quality, together with leading-edge genetics and technology. Since 1983, this unique marketing approach has allowed each individual company to match the hybrids it sells to the specific needs of the geographical area it serves. Combined with professional seed representation at a local level, AgVenture strives to help every grower realize more profit from every field.

Manchester officials, we are all on the same page. We have a great attitude going on in Wabash County right now.” According to the mayor, the city will lease the land for the hangar to Lutheran for a nominal fee. The hospital will pay for the construction, and the city may give them a tax abatement. Final numbers are not decided.

NIPSCO cautions of phone scam targeting utility customers M E R R I L LV I L L E , Ind. – Spurred by customer reports, NIPSCO is warning customers about a bill payment scam in which victims are asked to purchase a prepaid debit card to settle an overdue balance. Customers have reported receiving unsolicited phone calls from individuals falsely claiming to be NIPSCO representa-

tives. The scammers threaten disconnection of the customer’s electric service if an immediate payment is not made. They direct the customer to purchase a prepaid debit card – many reports specifically reference a “Green Dot Debit Card” – and call back with a receipt and PIN, giving the scammers access to the card’s funds. Both residential

and business customers have been targeted by the scammers. A number of reports have come from Spanish-speaking customers. In an effort to keep customers safe from scams, NIPSCO reminds customers: *NIPSCO never asks for customers who are behind on payments to purchase a prepaid debit card

N O RT H F I E L D ’ S FIRST GRADUATING CLASS had their 50th class reunion on Aug. 17. The event was chaired by Larry West. The 50th Year Committee members were Fred Hoover, Linda Collins, Jane Tracy, Nancy Fearnow, Judy Rhoades and Doris Moore. The MC for the evening was Wayne Panning. Black balloons were used to remember the deceased class members – Cozette (Baker) Engle, Ellis Baker, Jens Owe Ballschmidt, Steven Campbell, Nan (Dluzak) Cook, Sue Finnegan (who died on June 25, 2013), Jim Reed, David Sellers, Curtis Vigar and Steve Wolf. Carolyn (Street) Turner was remembered as she is now in a nursing home suffering from Alzheimers. Those attending but not pictured in this

week’s photo were: Danny Dingus, Linda Eckerley, Cassandra (Hairrell) and John Rish, Richard Steele, Melanie Hoover, Carol Hudson Iladeen Hunt, Sharon Koch, Claudia Rosen, Steve Fearnow, Loretta Sommers, Ann Story, Paula West, Linda Baker, Beth Gillespie and special guests Mary Ann Mast (teacher) and her husband Marvin. Joe Krom, a 1963 graduate who could not attend, wrote the following to share with his class members: “What a unique opportunity the Class of ’63 had to discard rivalries and band together for one year to begin a new enterprise. Football games with snow blowing in our faces at the Wabash school field, new teammates for cross-country and track, after school sessions to publish the ‘North Star,’ dances in the gym and cafeteria, not to mention dodging construction workers in the hallway, are shared experiences just for us. Someone else named the school, but it was we who named ‘Norsemen,’ ‘North

Star,’ and ‘Shield’ and we were the ones who chose the school song. Fifty years? That’s what the date says, but some events remain fresh – too fresh to have possibly been that far distant. Enjoy your gathering and we hope to be there for the next one!” “The group did enjoy reminiscing about the experiences of coming to a new school and forming new bonds and leaving behind classmates who were sent to Southwood as students from Lagro and Noble were split between the two newly consolidated schools. My first year of teaching was at Northfield and I felt the way many of the students of this first graduating class felt. I thank them for inviting me to attend theirs and my 50th reunion as a time to share memories of the beginning of Northfield High School.” SHARPCREEK WILDCAT PRIDE WINNERS drawn on Aug. 16 were John V. and Faye S. whose names were submitted by Mr. Snyder for

following the directions of the recess supervisor without arguing and Caleb S. whose name was submitted by Mrs. Campbell for picking up little rocks that were on the floor from the playground.

Manchester’s $1 million summer makeover is all about students More than $1 million in improvements await Manchester University students in North Manchester when classes begin Aug. 28. Nearly every corner of the 100-acre campus is getting a makeover, from a new café study lounge in Funderburg Library and a knee-friendly gym floor to extensive renovations to East Street Apartments and new HVAC chillers.

A $240,000 remodeling of Funderburg Library into an exciting new kind of information center likely will generate the most buzz with students. The interior redesign is creating many comfortable places and spaces to learn, collaborate and just chill with friends and faculty, said Library Director Jill Lichtsinn. “We have a virtual library online, so the remodel was a great

opportunity to use more of the physical space for the students,” said Lichtsinn. “Wi-Fi is throughout the library. On the main level, we are opening up more room for collaborative study areas. The computer lab now is in the lower level, opening wonderful space upstairs for an after-hours area that will include a café.” On the lower level, a new technology lab

provides 30 desktop computers, with space for 20 laptops that can be reserved by instructors for larger classes. Students may check out unreserved laptops (preloaded with MU software) for 24hour loans. F u n d e r b u r g Library is intent on giving students optimal learning experiences, said Lichtsinn. “We are open to student feedback once classes start,” she

Huntington University ranked No. 2 as safest campus in Indiana HUNTINGTON H u n t i n g t o n University is a safe school both for its campus and the local community, according to rankings by H u n t i n g t o n University ranked second in Indiana out 50 schools listed. “We are very pleased with this ranking, and it reaf-

firms the good work we are doing to make H u n t i n g t o n University a safe place for everyone,” said Dr. Ron Coffey, vice president for Student Life. The safety and security of members of the Huntington University community are the primary concerns of the campus leadership.

Trained police officers are on staff to patrol the campus and are charged with the enforcement of federal, state and local laws, as well as university policies and regulations. The police officers have the authority to make arrests and work closely with the Huntington City Police Department.

To learn more about HU’s campus police, visit police. For the rankings, compiles information by reviewing campus crime statistics submitted by college/university law enforcement between Jan. 1 and Dec.31, 2012.

Indiana INTERNnet to increase internship opportunities I n d i a n a INTERNnet is working with the Indiana Commission for Higher Education to grow the number of i n t e r n s h i p s statewide. Beginning this fall, for-profit employers in Indiana are eligible to apply for matching funds through the new Employment Aid Readiness Network (EARN) Indiana program. All internemployer matches will be made via Indiana INTERNnet www.indianaintern.n et, a statewide resource for internship opportunities managed by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce. Through EARN Indiana, a revamp of the state’s work-study program, students

offered state financial aid have access to resume building and experiential, paid internships. In addition, employers receive state matching funds in exchange for hiring these students. The goal is to better match students and employers to maximize each student’s academic success and career achievement, as well as to assist employers in finding a good fit for their team. Employers with approved positions receive state matching funds – up to 50 percent of a student’s hourly rate, which must meet minimum wage requirements – in exchange for hiring EARN-eligible students. All employers (both non-profit and

for-profit) are encouraged to now submit positions for EARN Indiana participation. “Internships have proven to increase students’ employability by providing realworld, hands-on work experience,” said Indiana INTERNnet Executive Director Janet Boston. “Increasing these paid opportunities is a critical workforce development strategy for Indiana. Opening the EARN Indiana program to for-profits is another step in the right direction.” The catalyst to revamp the previous work-study program was a report by Thomas P. Miller and Associates containing recommendations for improving the old program. The recom-

mendations centered on using the workstudy funding to promote experiential learning to help students cultivate career opportunities. The report also recommended improving the recruitment efforts of students and employers to maximize the benefit of the program. Specifically, it suggests that for-profit companies – excluded from participation until this fall – be able to participate and that student eligibility not be restricted to those that used a financial aid award from the state. This issue was raised in House Bill 1312, which was passed by the Indiana General Assembly during the 2013 legislative session.

Hesychia House announces community prayer watch

For the greater Wabash County community and surrounding areas, corporate prayer times will be offered twice a month with two different time options. Beginning in

September 2013, we will offer corporate prayer time on the second Tuesday of each month from 9-10 a.m. and on the fourth Thursday of each month from 7-8 p.m. Your prayers are

appreciated for this ministry and please pray that God will speak to your heart about how He would have you to participate. There are also individual times available

to visit the prayer room. The prayer is that the work of prayer that God desires will be accomplished!

said. “We will experiment with what works and make changes as necessary.” The ultimate goal in the library is to bring information technology and library personnel together. “The library and ITS are about gathering information,” said Chris Garber, project manager and MU director of operations. “Our long-term vision is to combine them in the building as a data source.” In other major renovations, East Street Apartments is in the midst of a $350,000 exterior and interior makeover. Outside is repair work on the roof, siding, back deck, porch and front step. Interior work focuses on the living space: new carpet, paint, showers and countertops in each apartment. A new fire alarm system completes the package in

the apartments for upper-class students. Over at the Physical Education and Recreation Center (PERC), the gym floor now has shock absorbers – really! The new floor of the Stauffer-Wolfe Arena is constructed of special knee-friendly material sure to please basketball players, especially. “The new floor has more bounce to it, and we hope this lessens the impact that our players experience,” said Erin Foreman, head athletic trainer and an assistant professor of exercise and sport sciences. Another major project is a new $300,000 water chiller. Manchester’s cooling system relies on water chillers that circulate 55-degree water to most buildings on campus. The purchase allows Manchester to retire a

1976 chiller. Throughout the summer, Manchester focused on minimizing its environmental footprint. “We did everything possible to be conscious stewards of our resources,” said Lichtsinn. The library: *Donated nearly 1,000 shelving units and fixtures to public libraries in Shelbyville and Pendleton, Ind. *Donated thousands of books to Better World Books, which sells books to areas in need for reduced prices and donates part of its proceeds to charity. *Recycled thousands of bounded periodicals that are published in online full-text versions.

American Red Cross thanks donors and volunteers Dear editor, We want to thank all our donors and volunteers who helped with the labors, donated food or donated blood for our August blood drive. All of you working together helps to make it a success. Also thanks to the North Manchester Church of the

Brethren for the use of their facility once again. We collected a total of 56 unites of blood, which was more than the last couple times and was below our goal of 60 units, but we were very thankful for each donor. We hope we can increase that number at the next blood drive on

Oct. 17. It will be held at the same location from noon until 6 p.m. We hope to see you there. Craig Walters reached his goal of 14 gallons. We thank each of our faithful donors that come to nearly every event. Donna Renicker American Red Cross

The church planned to meet their goal in the span of a year, but reached the $5,000 mark in four short months. To celebrate, the church had a worship concert service lead by Brian Hanson, and had food, fellowship and water games in their backyard. (photo provided)

Knights pick up lone county win by Gary Andrews The Southwood football team did something Friday night they haven’t done since 2008, win on opening night. Running in to the Southern Wells buzz saw the last few years the Knights had revenge on their mind. Trailing 16-14 at the half the Knights came out inspired in the second half, putting up 15 points in the third quarter and flexing their muscle on defense for a 29-22 win. Nathan Hollars would get the crowd in the game right off the bat with a 51-yard kickoff return to the Raider 29. With some

opening night jitters the Knight offense stalled. On Southern Wells second possession and driving the ball, Austin Schlemmer would recover a fumble for the Knights, giving them good field position and some momentum. The Knights would start at the 45-yard line, scoring seven plays later on a Hollars 25 yard scamper to lead 7-0 with 6:07 to go. The Raiders would counter punch, scoring with 2:48 remaining in the first quarter and led 8-7 after one. With both defenses dominating, Southern Wells would strike first in the second quarter, picking off a

Robbie Cole pass for a 74 yard score, going for two again and led 16-7 with 3:23 to go. The Knights would keep the ball the remainder of the half, mounting a drive from the 41, with Hollars scoring a second time with 4.5 seconds left. Zach Hobson split the uprights again and the Knights trailed 1614 at the half. Southern Wells would score on their first possession of the second half, with the two-point conversion failing to lead 22-14 with 10:25 remaining. The Knight offense would find their groove on their second possession. Starting on their own

33. After a 50-yard scamper from Hollars on the third play, he would take it in from six yards out two plays later with 3:18 to go. The Knights went for two with Cole connecting with Alex Harmon to knot the score at 22. The Knight defense would force the Raiders to punt on took over with 1:16 left on the Southern Wells 40. One play later, Cole hit Danny Goff in stride for a 40 yard scoring strike and just like that the Knights led 29-22 after Hobson’s boot. On their second possession of the fourth quarter Southern Wells was mounting a drive, get-

ting the ball on the Southwood 40 after a punt and a Knight penalty. The Raiders were on the Southwood 12 yard line when Corey Phillipy recovered a fumble to stall the drive with 3:09 to play. The Knight offense would take their time, eventually forcing Southern Wells to take their last time out with 1:14 on the clock. The Knights ran out of downs with 23.3 left, giving the ball to Southern Wells on their own 30. On the Raiders first play, Corey Phillipy would recover his second fumble in three minutes, with the Knights running the clock out for the win.

Apaches stumble in season opener by Gary Andrews The Wabash Apache football team got off to a bad start at Peru on Friday and could never recover in a 40-13 loss to the Tigers. Wabash would win the coin flip

and deferred to Peru who elected to receive the ball to start the game. As it turned out, it was the right decision for the Tigers as they ran the opening kick off back for a touchdown to take a 7-0 lead 14 seconds into the game. Peru would score two more times in the first quarter and led the Apaches 21-0 at the end of one. The Wabash offense couldn’t

Down 40-0 the Apaches broke the ice with a Cody Clemons touchdown to make it 40-6 with 9:08 remaining. The Apaches would score one more time on a Yeadon three yard run for the 40-13 final.

Shaylee Correll also played her first 18-hole match as an individual so our team also has depth, which keeps them working to get better.

21 National biodiesel tour includes stops at Dreyfus and CountryMark THE PAPER

August 28, 2013

PERU - A recent Indiana tour provided major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) from Detroit and their Indiana dealers with the chance to see the biodiesel production process, from crushing plant to distribution at local retail locations. The tour was an important opportunity for OEMs who have recently shown increased interest in the quality and performance advantages of biodiesel-blended fuels. Re p r e s e n t a t ive s from Daimler Trucks North America, Detroit Diesel and Mercedes-Benz USA stopped at CountryMark’s fuel terminal in Peru, Ind., to see the cooperative’s commitment to blending and distributing high quality biodiesel blended fuels. The visit was part of a two-day trip organized by the National Biodiesel Board

(NBB), which also included a stop at the Louis Dreyfus Commodities biodiesel production plant in Claypool. Jennifer Weaver of NBB explained that the goal of this tour was to help major OEMs gain a better perspective on industry-leading biodiesel production, blending and distribution processes and practices. “OEMs are asking more and more about the value of biodiesel,” explained Weaver. “They want to see how biodiesel is engineered and what makes it a higher quality product. They’ve really been impressed by the dedication that biofuel companies, such as CountryMark and Louis Dreyfus, have toward quality.” C o u n t r y M a rk ’s Peru terminal, where the tour visited Tuesday afternoon, was the first computer automated biodiesel blending

terminal in the country. The biodiesel blending system was added to the CountryMark terminal in 2004. Dennis Reynolds, CountryMark pipeline and terminal manager, felt the attendees left having learned something new about CountryMark’s processes and high quality standards. “We shared with them the CountryMark operations process we use to assure that our biodiesel blended fuels will exceed the expectations of both our on-road and offroad diesel customers,” said Reynolds. CountryMark purchases and blends only BQ9000 quality biodiesel, the highest standard for fuel quality in the biodiesel industry. “We continue to hear from engine manufactures that fuel quality is key to optimizing engine

performance in today’s modern diesel engines,” said Jon Lantz, CountryMark Vice President of Marketing. “Because of this need, CountryMark starts with the highest quality diesel fuel and blends with it only the highest quality biodiesel.” One of the major advantages of biodiesel is that it can be used in all diesel engines and fuel injection equipment in blends of at least five percent (B5) and over 75 percent of OEMs also approves the use of up to B20 or higher biodiesel blends in at least some of their equipment. Daimler Trucks North America has shown its commitment to high quality biodiesel with their Detroit Diesel engines approved for B5 blends or B20 upon approval, and their use of Cummins engines

THE NATIONAL BIODIESEL BOARD recently held a biodiesel training meeting that included a tour of the CountryMark Terminal in Peru. Some of the tour participants included (from left): Steve Howell with National Biodiesel Board; Jason Martin and John NcNeil with Daimler Trucks North America; and Jon Lantz with CountryMark. (photo provided) approved for B20 blends. CountryMark is an American owned oil exploration, production, refining and marketing company with headquarters in Indianapolis. The CountryMark refinery, located in Mt. Vernon, Indiana,

processes 27,000 barrels of American crude oil per day. In addition to oil refining and logistics, CountryMark operates more than 1,400 oil wells that produce 3,500 barrels of American crude oil daily. CountryMark fuels and a propri-

and at stations, Operation Lifesaver night at the Gary Rail Cats baseball game, and media coverage of events. Indiana is also taking a proactive lead in the elimination of trespassing and pedestrian fatalities at railroad crossings. In 2012, there were 106-railroad crossing collisions resulting in 38 people injured and 17 fatalities in the

state of Indiana. There were also 11 trespasser deaths last year. These numbers only reflect people who were injured or killed, not those people who broke the law and suffered no consequences. Indiana is currently ranked fourth nationally for railroad crossing collisions. “We are constantly striving to improve the railroad crossings

in Indiana,” said Feder. “However, more than 75 percent of the collisions at these public crossings occur where active warning devices, such as flashing lights and gates, exist. We encourage everyone to take these warning devices seriously and pay attention at all railroad crossings. It’s the law!” Indiana Operation Lifesaver is a non-

profit organization dedicated to eliminating collisions, deaths and injuries at highway-rail grade intersections and on railroad rights-of-way through public education, engineering and enforcement. To learn more about Indiana Operation Lifesaver, please visit them online at or call 317-267-4011.

North Manchester Historical Society to hold program on Sept. 9 The North M a n c h e s t e r Historical Society will host author Joe Krom for its Sept. 9 program. The program begins at 6:40 p.m. and a meal precedes by reservation. Mr. Krom will be speaking on “William Wells on the Indiana Frontier.” Krom’s historical novel “Heart of a Warrior: The True Saga of Sweet Breeze and William Wells”

covers the Indiana frontier from the end of the Revolutionary War to the beginnings of the War of 1812. The fledgling United States government called this region the Northwest Territory. The Miami and Potawatomie nations called it home. The resulting clash of cultures erupted into war along the Eel, the Wabash, the Tippecanoe and the Mississinewa Rivers.

Sweet Breeze, the daughter of the acclaimed Miami Chief Little Turtle, and her husband William Wells embodied this conflict. Mr. Krom grew up in Wabash County along the Eel River. He was a member of Northfield’s first graduating class in 1963. He earned a BS from Manchester College and an MS from Indiana State University. He taught

mathematics and coached track in Indiana public schools for many years. Upon retirement, he began researching events contained in his novel. He and his wife Anita visited libraries, museums and historic sites along the highways and byways. Tidbits of fact are woven with major historical events into a narrative that carries the reader through these

troubled times. The program will be held in the Assembly Room of Timbercrest Senior Living Community, 2201 East Street, at 6:40 p.m. The program is free to the public. All are welcome. While many attend only the program, the public is also invited to come to the Assembly Room at 6 p.m. for a meal prior to the presentation.

Old Timer’s softball game a hit with players and fans by Bill Barrows Sunday’s Ice Cream in the Park event was the perfect setting for an Old Timer’s Softball Game that actually became a tribute to men spanning about five generations of Wabash area softball players. Mayor Bob Vanlandingham was asked a few months ago to see if this game could become a reality by Mary Delauter, one of the organizers of the event in the park. As one of the former players who played on teams coached by the mayor, long before he entered politics, I felt honored when he asked me along with Steve Dyer, another longtime softball player to help him organize the game. Weeks were spent contacting players, setting up practices and researching old rosters and teams. We set up three different practices to at least give the players a chance to workout, take some ground balls, fly balls and batting practice. A good number of players attended each scheduled practice session. Things were coming together. After the first one, I couldn’t decide if I was more euphoric for still being able to hit, field and throw (albeit with less power, range and accuracy) or relieved for just getting through it without getting hurt. I’m guessing a lot of guys felt that way. One of Mayor Vanlandingham’s, I mean, Coach Va n l a n d i n g h a m ’ s goals was to honor people who created an athletic tradition

where brothers played with and against each other and fathers felt proud, still able to play when their sons were able to join them on the field at the City Park in Wabash. Some of the players who played in the game started playing in the mid 1950s. Some look like they could still play at a high level even today. Most, me included, were very grateful to simply be asked to participate. The two teams were introduced to a crowd of people assembled that reminded me of softball in its heyday here in Wabash. The Mayor coaching one team, his longtime protégé (me) coaching the other. The stands on both sides of the field were filled from dugout to dugout. Plus, I’ll bet there haven’t been that many automobiles lined up past the outfield fences since the mid 1980’s. It was impressive. As I stood along the 3rd base line looking at the crowd, it brought back a lot of good memories. Those of us playing in the game had a tremendous opportunity to watch as many former players who were not playing in the game were introduced as they entered the field. Watching a younger brother walk out and hug his older brother on a ball field is an emotional site that was witnessed today. That emotion was honest and sincere. The best moment of the day occurred next. Starting pitchers Jerry Hipsher and Dave Ervin escorted longtime umpire Ray Drudge, who unfortu-

nately is now blind, to home plate where M a y o r Va n l a n d i n g h a m talked about their relationship cemented on that same ball field after years of working together professionally. We all watched and listened as the mayor presented him with the key to the city. Those of us near home plate were witness to the raw emotion of seeing a son, who also played the game, recording a proud family moment while watching his elderly father being honored. Tears flowed, including my own. It was a very powerful and special moment. Then the game began. Over the course of 6 short innings, relationships were rekindled. Guys who didn’t know each other very well seemed to become friends with a kid’s game as a common thread. Men who had never had the opportunity to play on the same field due to the generation gap shared the playing field and numerous memories. And grandsons got the chance to see that grandpa can still play a game that they play now as youths. On the field, there were still flashes of brilliant athleticism that surprised even the men who provided that brilliance. Some two hours later, we walked away from Vaughn-Rantz Field with smiles on our faces knowing that we succeeded in entertaining those who faithfully attended. No one had become injured and we will all live to tell

even larger tales about our softball careers than before.

Oh yes, there was a final score. 6-3, which was a small detail,

compared to the smiles, hugs, and high-five’s exchanged throughout the day. Who won? All of us

who still care about a game that we love. And…..the protégé learned a lot from the mentor.

Junior Achievement and Boy Scouts collaborate to host Parkview Muddy Trail Run

Kids are back in school and already on many classroom schedules are the Junior Achievement programs they look forward to. After school, many young

boys will eagerly participate in Boy Scout programs, too. To raise the funding necessary to ensure that JA and Boy Scouts programs remain available to

young people in this community, the Parkview Muddy Trail Run will be held on Saturday, Sept. 7. Designed as a muddy obstacle-filled 5K run, this will not be a

speed or hard-core challenge event. Participants can direct their support to Boy Scouts or Junior Achievement. When directing their support, JA supporters can also select their county, and funding will remain in the local community. Companies are encouraged to sponsor an employee team as a fun team-building activity. To raise funds for their entry fee, runners are encouraged to solicit donations from friends, family, and co-workers, too. It’s all happening at the Anthony Wayne Scout Reservation, also known as Camp Chief Little Turtle, in Pleasant Lake in Steuben County. Beginning at 10 a.m., teams and individuals will get down and dirty with a mud pit, river run, and sand dune climb. Friends and family are invited to bring food, chairs, or blankets to watch the muddy fun and capture the day in pictures and video. Activities will be held

Duke Energy funds $312,000 in Ivy Tech scholarships

Duke Energy is funding $312,000 in Ivy Tech Corporate College scholarships to jump start five regional training programs to prepare workers for the skills area manufacturers identify as critical for their workforce. Ivy Tech and Duke Energy are collaborating with leaders in manufacturing, economic development and local government f r o m Bloomington/Bedford , Connersville/Richmo nd, Kokomo and Shelbyville to develop eight-week, advanced manufacturing programs modeled after an Ivy Tech initiative in Lafayette. The Lafayette program also will receive a share of the Duke Energy Workforce Development scholarships. “I applaud the efforts of Duke Energy, Ivy Tech and local business and community leaders to help make college more affordable, accessible and convenient for Hoosiers committed to pursuing or continuing careers in manufacturing,” said Indiana Gov. Mike Pence. “This program, coupled with efforts by the state, illustrates the commitment of

both the private and public sectors to place a new priority on technical education, which will help address Indiana’s skills gap and strengthen the state’s economic outlook for the benefit of all Hoosier workers.” “Manufacturing still employs more people than any other industry in Indiana, but the modern manufacturing environment requires advanced training that goes beyond the high school diploma,” said Duke Energy Indiana President Doug Esamann. “This program provides scholarship-funded education tailored to fit the high-tech needs of different Indiana regions.” The Duke Energy grant will fund 120, $2,600 scholarships. Recipients must be at least 18 years old and residents of Duke Energy-served Indiana counties. Preference will be given to applicants from the five target regions as well as Duke Energy Indiana customers. Recipients also must undergo basic skills testing, a drug screening and an interview. Scholarship applications are not yet available in most regions, but anyone

interested may add their name to a list to receive more information as the programs rollout. Go to: e-grant. “Through our partnerships with area employers and industries, Ivy Tech is best equipped to offer the type of short-term, career-ready training needed by the state’s key sector employers,” said Thomas J. Snyder, president of Ivy Tech Community College. “In order for our state to grow, we need to ensure workers are equipped and adequately trained for the jobs of the future, and this grant will help make that possible.” In Lafayette, a 12county partnership of area education, manufacturing, government and economic development groups connects and trains workers for area manufacturing jobs. The initiative, called Advancing Manufacturing, turns unskilled workers into certified production technicians— workers with the basic skills and certification that many manufacturers require. The year-old program has graduated 149 students, and about 80 percent of

those participants have landed jobs at manufacturers such as Federal Mogul, Voestalpine Rotec, Lafayette Instrument, Wabash National C o r p o r at i o n , D o n a l d s o n Corporation and Nanshan Advanced Aluminum. In addition to training, the partnership offers job fairs and a one-stop website that is continuously updated to link job seekers with employers. Employers who sign on as partners in this initiative pledge to support a sustainability fund. Once program graduates are placed in jobs, employer payments into the fund provide ongoing funding for future students. Graduate success is also critical to ongoing program evaluation. Ivy Tech will monitor each student at 30, 60, 90, 180 and 365-day intervals to ensure proper job placement and retention following training. Duke Energy Indiana’s operations provide approximately 6,900 megawatts of owned electric capacity to approximately 790,000 customers, making it the state’s largest electric supplier.

rain or shine – rain will simply add more fun! Entrants who register before Aug. 24 receive a free t-shirt and tote bag. Every participant gets a hearty lunch, too. Entrants must be at

least 14 years of age. Also available are 30-foot Rock Climbing Wall and 150-yard Zip Line experiences. Participants do not need to enter the 5K to register for either or both of these added thrills.

To get involved visit www.MuddyTrailRun .com for more information and to register. For more information contact: Julie Dyson, Area Coordinator, 574-7217212.

Gov. Pence announces the Center for Education and Career Innovation Indianapolis, IN â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Governor Mike Pence today continued his focus on improving education and workforce development for Hoosiers by creating the Center for Education and Career Innovation (CECI). Joined by Special Assistant for Career Innovation Jaclyn Dowd and Special Assistant for Education Innovation Claire Fiddian-Green, the Governor signed Executive Order 13-21 to establish the new agency. CECI will improve collaboration among Indianaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public, private and non-profit education and workforce partners by aligning education and career and workforce training efforts. The center will focus on students, clients and results, and will work to ensure Indiana is providing quality education for children and preparing adults for new careers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Indiana has made great strides in the last eight years when it comes to improving education and workforce development opportunities for Hoosiers, but with unemployment stubbornly staying above eight percent, there is still work to be done,â&#x20AC;? said Governor Pence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Center for Education and Career Innovation will strive to improve coordination between pertinent agency partners and industry voices to ensure a worldclass education for students and to better prepare adults to be successful in their chosen career pathway that also meets industry demands. By creating a focal point for bringing together and deploying critical resources, the agency will deliver real change in Indiana, benefitting Hoosier families, employers and taxpayers, and, ultimately, impacting every Hoosier across the state.â&#x20AC;? The agency also will foster, identify, and scale innovative education and workforce models, tools and resources and ensure Hoosier educators have the freedom, support and flexibility to succeed in the classroom.

Through transparent accountability systems, CECI will hold students, adult workers, educators, schools, higher education institutions and workforce programs accountable for their progress. The agency will proactively engage

and collaborate with a number of valuable partners in state government including the Department of Education, the Indiana Charter School Board, the Department of W o r k f o r c e Development, the Commission for

Higher Education, and the Office of S t a t e - B a s e d Initiatives. The Indiana Career Council, the Indiana Works Councils, the E d u c a t i o n Roundtable and the State Board of Education, though functioning inde-

pendently, will exist as part of the new agency.

furnish a culinary arts lab/classroom at the college’s Peru Instructional Site. Now, nearly one year later, with the help of that monetary gift, the lab is a reality. “What gave us the final nudge, was a gift from Ken, his business and his family and we are so very much appreciative of that,” said Ivy Tech Kokomo Region Chancellor, Steve Daily. “I think that we’re going to find that in this community and in this region, this is going to be a very popular pro-

August 28, 2013

Late blight disease found on Indiana tomato samples WEST LAFAYETTE - Late blight was confirmed this past week on several tomato samples from Tippecanoe County in west-central Indiana, leading the Purdue University Plant and

Pest Diagnostic Laboratory to urge growers to inspect their plants for the destructive disease. Symptoms of late blight, caused by the fungal-like organism Phytophthora infes-

tans, include olive green to brown spots on leaves with slightly fuzzy-white fungal growth on the underside when conditions have been humid, such as in the early morning or after rain. The lesion border sometimes is yellow or has a water-soaked appearance. Brown to blackish lesions also develope on upper

stems, and brown spots develop on tomato fruit. The disease can spread quickly in tomato and potato plantings in cool and wet conditions. Its spread is slowed by hot, sunny weather. “All growers should assume their crops may eventually be affected and thus should be on a weekly

schedule to both thoroughly inspect their potato and tomato plantings and apply fungicides if the weather remains cool and cloudy,” Tom Creswell, PPDL director, and senior plant disease diagnostician Gail Ruhl advised on the PPDL’s website. They said infected plants in home gardens should be

removed immediately and either burned or put in a plastic bag for disposal. “Do not compost affected plants, as spores will spread from this infected debris to other healthy tomato plants,” they said. Because there are many similar diseases on tomato leaves, identification

of late blight requires examination by microscope, they said. Samples can be submitted for analysis to Plant and Pest D i a g n o s t i c Laboratory, LSPSRoom 101, Purdue University, 915 W. State St., West Lafayette, IN 479072054.

Peru – Indiana State Police Master Trooper Jeff Franklin has retired from the state police after serving the citizens of Indiana for 34 years. Franklin graduated from the Indiana State Police Academy in August of 1979 and was assigned to the

Indiana State Police Lafayette Post as a trooper. In 1983, he transferred to the Peru Post and was assigned road patrol responsibilities primarily in Miami County. Early in his career, Franklin was also assigned road patrol

duties in Howard County, but spent a majority of his career patrolling his home county of Tipton. Starting in 2003, Franklin spent an eight year stint patrolling Hamilton and Madison Counties, while assigned to the

Indiana State Police Pendleton Post. In 2011, Franklin transferred back to the Peru District and resumed road patrol duties in Tipton County. During his career, Master Trooper Franklin served as a firearms instructor.

He oversaw firearms training and qualifications for troopers while assigned to the Pendleton and Peru Districts. He also instructed firearms training for recruits at the Indiana State Police Academy. On four separate occasions, Franklin was a member of the Indiana State Police “High 20” club. The “High 20” is the top 20 handgun shooters on the Indiana State Police Department. The top 20 shooters are determined by scores accumulated during the annual Indiana State Police Putnamville Pistol Competition. Franklin is proud of the many things he was able to accomplish during his 34 year career, but he is especially proud of the job he and other troopers did in 1995 when assigned to patrol the streets of Gary, Ind. Troopers were ordered to Gary by former Indiana Governor Evan Bayh to help reduce crime, which led to Gary being nicknamed the “Murder Capital” of the United States. “Master Trooper Franklin set a professional example that all police officers should strive to achieve.” stated Lt. Jeremy Kelly, commander of the Indiana State Police Peru Post. “Jeff was dedicated to his community and to his profession. He served them both well. His retirement is well deserved.” Master Trooper Franklin is a 1976 graduate of TriCentral High School. He and his wife, Judy, reside in Tipton County. They have four adult children; two sons, Jarrin and Justin, and two daughters, Jessica and Janelle. They also have eight grandchildren.
