Thermafiber Named 2012 Business of the Year

Marilyn CusterMitchell, Wabash County Chamber of Commerce Board Chair, recently a n n o u n c e d Thermafiber as the 2012 Business of the Year. “The level of dedication that Thermafiber has invested in this community is evident through their commitment to quality products and services,” stated CusterM i t c h e l l . “Celebrating their success and community impact is part of the Chamber’s mission.” Steve Edris, President & CEO for T h e r m a f i b e r, responded to the announcement, “We are quite proud to be a partner in the community. Being named

Business of the Year is a great honor and accomplishment. We are very grateful to the Chamber, the community, our suppliers, and most importantly our employees and customers, for their help in our success.” Thermafiber was officially formed in 1996 when USG Corporation sold the mineral wool manufacturing plants in B i r m i n g h a m , Tacoma, and Wabash. However, the company’s history in Wabash County dates back 78 years when the first factory was constructed. In 1934, Brigadier General Robert Wood and Michael Luery, both West Point Military Academy graduates and WWI veterans, located

2012 BUSINESS OF THE YEAR: Thermafiber was recently announced as the 2012 Wabash County Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year by Marilyn Custer-Mitchell, Chamber of Commerce Chair. Thermafiber will be honored during the Chamber’s annual dinner meeting Oct. 18 at the Honeywell Center. (photo by Mike Rees) their factory at the current site west of the city of Wabash, Indiana. They selected the site due to the Mississinewa shale limestone that was suitable for melting to make rock wool insulation. General Wood was best known for his leadership of Sears, Roebuck and Company where he was Chairman from 1939 to 1954 and led the conversion of that company from being a

catalog business to a department store retailer. He was also credited with creating Allstate Insurance, then a subsidiary of Sears. From 1934 to 1959, the company, operating as American Rock Wool, grew from a single plant to many situated across the U.S. In 1959, the business was sold to United States Gypsum, a large building materials conglomerate based

in Chicago. USG enjoyed success with the Wabash plant for 36 years before deciding to exit the insulation business. It was in 1996 when the first of four private equity groups acquired the business and the company name was changed to Thermafiber, a wellknown brand owned by the company. Today Thermafiber produces mineral wool insulation made

from a combination of slag and natural rock. Slag is a waste product of steel production and comes to Thermafiber in the form of a rock. Every year Thermafiber recycles around 150 million pounds of waste slag into their products. In the manufacturing process the rocks are heated in cupola furnaces at temperatures in excess of 2,600°F, converting them back to a

molten lava state. The molten material is then spun into fibers with a combination of compressed air and high-speed spinning wheels. Thermafiber will be honored at the Wabash County Chamber of Commerce 71st Annual Dinner meeting to be held Thursday, Oct. 18. The event is open to the public. Tickets will be available in September.

Wabash Chiropractor arrested on five counts of battery by Brent Swan Local chiropractor Dr. Jeffrey Friedersdorf was arrested Aug. 10 on five counts of battery, each a Class B Misdemeanor. The charges stemmed from an investigation led by Wabash City Police D e p a r t m e n t Detective Ryan Short. According to documents filed with Wabash County Superior Court, it is alleged that Friedersdorf inappropriately touched several of his patients at his practice, Friedersdorf Wellness Center, 1165 N. Cass St., starting in 2011. During the investigation, Short interviewed alleged victims including one

who stated Friedersdorf had been working with her to alleviate lower back and neck pain. During one procedure, the victim alleges that Friedersdorf had went under her clothing so he could work on her tailbone area. The victim went on to say Friedersdorf then touched her inappropriately. It is alleged that Friedersdorf then told the victim she could sit up so that he could work on the neck area. According to the victim’s statement, Friedersdorf then consciously and deliberately made contact with her breast. The victim also stated to authorities that Friedersdorf then wrote his phone

number on a prescription pad with dates his wife would be on vacation. Detective Short obtained statements from four other victims alleging battery in the same manner. Another victim alleged that Friedersdorf touched her inappropriately during a June 28, 2012 procedure. The alleged victim, a 19-year old female, came to the Wabash City Police Department to file an official complaint shortly after she stated the incident occurred. The victim had been a patient of Friedersdorf ’s since July 2010. According to Friedersdorf ’s statement to Det. Short, that patient had com-

plained of pain in the groin, knee, and repeated stress fractures from running. Friedersdorf denied violating the patient and instead stated that he had put his finger on her tailbone and shifted it. Throughout the investigation, Friedersdorf has denied any and all allegations, stating that he only worked on the tip of the tailbone and that he never to his knowledge performed any internal procedures. Two other victims stated Friedersdorf touched them inappropriately. Both gave statements to Det. Short that they had felt they had been touched inappropriately and both were uncomfort-

able with the treatment they received. Both alleged Friedersdorf performed various procedures beneath their clothing. F r i e d e r s o r f appeared in Superior Court before Judge Chris Goff on Aug. 13 for an initial hearing, during which his attorney, John Watkins, waived his client’s right to hear the charges brought against him. Friedersdorf has pled not guilty to all charges. An omnibus pre-trial conference was scheduled for Oct. 1. Chief Deputy Prosecutor Bryan Michaud is representing the state. According to Erin Reece, office of the Indiana Attorney General, Public

Information Officer, Freidersdorf has had a preliminary emergency suspsension (ES) filed within its office prohibiting Friedersdorf from practicing until a formal complaint is filed and heard. Friedersdorf ’s license to practice will eventually be heard before the state licensing board to decide what, if any, further action is warranted. If found guilty, each of the five charges against Friedersdorf carry a maximum penalty of 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. According to Short, the investigation remains ongoing. “If anyone has any further information about this case, or if there are any more

While a major weather pattern change that brought much-needed rain and cooler temperatures to the parched eastern Corn Belt is welcome relief, Purdue University climatologists warn against thinking the drought is almost over. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Drought Monitor (http://www.droughtm o n i t o r. u n l . e d u ) update on Thursday (Aug. 16) shows a shrinking area of exceptional drought the worst drought rating available - that has gripped southwest and west-central Indiana. The southern half of the state is still largely encompassed by extreme to exceptional drought, but the northern half of the state mostly ranges from the lesser categories of moderate to severe. The hot dome of high pressure that had been parked over Indiana and the Midwest much of the summer has shifted to the southwestern states, taking the excessive heat west with it, said Ken Scheeringa, associate state climatologist for the Indiana State

Climate Office at Purdue. “This shift has allowed the jet stream, which was stuck far north of Indiana earlier this summer, to sink farther south, putting much of the state right into the storm track,” Scheeringa said. “This change has given us better opportunities for more frequent and heavier rainfall with greater area coverage.” A few weeks ago, climatologists were expecting more of the same - a warmer-thannormal August with little rain. But recent shifts in the storm track driven by the jet stream and largescale movement of the high-pressure system have changed that thinking.

“We will continue to evaluate our outlook for August,” Scheeringa said. “In particular, if this pattern continues, it would be possible for August to end up with normal to cooler temperatures and about normal rainfall. As of today, August is near normal in temperature and above normal in rainfall. We will see what happens in the next two weeks.” While all of this certainly helps reduce drought conditions, Indiana State Climatologist Dev Niyogi cautions against thinking that Indiana’s drought is over. “When folks see that the grass has greened up, the tendency is to think the drought is nearly

over,” he said. “But drought is more than lack of rainfall. It is a delicate balance between supply and demand. We need to consider the water status of deep wells, reservoirs and streams, many of which are depleted and will take a while to recover. “The fact is there is still a large unmet demand and many regions with rainfall deficit. The Drought Monitor likely will continue to show drought for a while, but should continue to show slow improvement.” Purdue Extension has compiled a series of drought resources at

Christman family thanks firefighters

Dear editor Due to the recent fire, our family would like to express a heartfelt thank you to all that have helped to contain the fire, save the barns, and support us all emotionally. It was extremely difficult to watch part of our family’s heritage burn to the ground. Without the help of all of you, it would be gone. There aren’t enough words to express how thankful we are for all of the efforts of the following people: The Lagro Fire Dept., Urbana Fire Dept., Noble Fire Dept., Andrews Fire Dept., The Red Cross, The EMA, Wabash Co. Sheriff ’s Dept., Bob Pefley, Ralph Murphy, Eads Bulldozing, and the Lord. We appreciate the outpouring of concern and encouragement from so many in these recent days.

Wabash Rotary Club Announces its 21st Annual United Fund Kick-Off Event Wabash Rotary Club continues its tradition of kicking off the Wabash County United Fund campaign with a benefit Golf Outing on September 12, 2012. The Golf Outing will begin with lunch at noon hosted by Miller’s Merry Manor with a shotgun start at 1:00 p.m. at the Honeywell Golf Course. “The Rotary golf event has been greeted with terrific

enthusiasm from the community” stated Executive Director of the United Fund, Deborah VanMeter who also is the President of Kiwanis. The Kiwanis and Rotary organizations recently joined forces on July 28th during the Wabash River Defenders Clean out the Banks event. Dr. Eric Dale, Rotary President, agreed with VanMeter that both are great organiza-

tions and “more can be accomplished by working together.” Wabash County is a community that collaborates for the benefit of all. The Rotary Golf Outing is a perfect example of what “Living United” means, given that all proceeds are donated to the United Fund which in turn are invested directly back into the community. “The fact that the event is held in September, the

golf outing represents summer’s last “Hurrah” as well as a wonderful opportunity to impact the community through United Fund donations”, added VanMeter. This year’s hole in one sponsors are Dorais Chevrolet, Buick, GMC Dealer and Brandt’s HarleyDavidson with insurance coverage provided by Beauchamp and McSpadden. David Dorais’ passion for the annual

United Fund kick-off stems from his prior involvement with the United Fund as Campaign Chair and member of the Board of Directors. When he joined the Wabash Rotary Club and was asked to be involved in the golf outing Dorais stepped up and said, “Sure, I will help.” Since then, Dorais has been instrumental in the success of the golf outing for twenty years. Along with David Dorais,

Art Jasen, Brad Farlow, Tom Frank, and Christine Flohr have also been actively involved in the yearly event. The Wabash County United Fund board of directors would like to extend gratitude to the Wabash Rotary Club for their continuation of the Golf Outing. Board President, Jan Roland stated, “The support we get from Rotary and the entire community

helps fund our programs. Working together on projects like this is what makes Wabash County such a special place for all of us.” For more information on how to participate in the golf outing please contact Deborah VanMeter by calling 260.563.6726 or via email at

North Manchester Center for History chosen to participate in CAP

NORTH MANCHESTER-Heritage Preservation is pleased to announce the North Manchester Center For History has been one of two museums chosen to participate in the 2012 Conservation Assessment Program (CAP). The Center For History joins the 2,800 museums that have participated in CAP in its twenty-two year history of serving museums. Heritage Preservation’s CAP is supported through a cooperative agreement with the federal Institute of Museum

and Library Services. CAP assists museums by providing funds for professional conservation and recommends ways to correctly improve collections and building conditions. Heritage Preservation’s President, Lawrence L. Reger, praised the North Manchester Center For History for “making the vital work of caring for collections a priority of their institution, even in these challenging financial times, and helping ensure that they are available to present and future generations.”

CAP provides a general conservation assessment of the museum’s collections and historic buildings or landscapes. A professional conservator will spend two days surveying the sites and three days preparing comprehensive reports that will identify conservation priorities. The on-site consultation will enable the Center For History to evaluate its current collections care policies, procedures, and environmental conditions. The assessment reports will help the museum make appro-

priate improvements for the immediate, mid-range, and longrange care of their c o l l e c t i o n s . According to Joyce Joy, curator and archivist for the Center For History, “Participating in CAP will increase staff awareness of collections preservation concerns, improve collection care, develop a long-range preservation plan for collections and can be used as a tool to obtain funding for collection care.” The North Manchester Center For History is located

the doors for good.” “We cannot thank the Wabash community enough for your support and we have met a lot of good people that we will always appreciate,” Sue said. The Pilgrims stated that the costs of operation have nearly doubled in the past four to five years, in large part due to the rise in oil prices and taxes. Coupled with a down economy, the Pilgrims said they lost nearly 35 to 40 percent of their retail sales as well. “This is not an easy decision because of the loyal customers that have counted on us as much as we have counted on them the past several years,” Mike said. “We would encourage everyone out there to at least consider buying from local small businesses as much as possible.”

Service Bureau. Bogert also added, “The children need to know our community cares about them.” School supplies and back packs are provided through donations and supplies are replenished for the students throughout the year as needed. Wabash Kiwanis Club volunteers raise funds throughout the year to donate to programs geared to help children locally as well as internationally.

ees who are supposed to be regulating them. The latest evidence supporting that assertion comes from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management’s Office of Air Quality. Those folks are seeking permission from the Environmental Protection Agency to stop publishing notices of hearings. The time and cost of notifying the public are a nuisance. It would be simpler to post the notices on a website and send emails to people who sign up to get notification. Trouble is, the average person doesn’t go surfing through hearing notices from IDEM or sign up for email notification. Taking the web-only approach guarantees that special interest groups — both corporate and environmental — are informed about what’s going on. The general public, people who read newspapers, would be kept in the dark.

It is never a simple thing for a newspaper to take to the soapbox about public notice advertising. After all, public notice ads provide a revenue stream. Not a huge one, but one that could rightly provoke cynicism — or at least skepticism — when we argue that public notice ads serve an important purpose in a democratic society. So let’s get a few basics cleared up right away. It’s the Indiana General Assembly which requires when public notice advertising should be published. It’s the Indiana General Assembly which determines the size of the type. And — except for some n o n - g ove r n m e n t a l categories — it’s the Indiana General Assembly which sets the price to be charged. That’s the system that’s been in place for more than 80 years. That’s how Hoosiers learned about the

innards of local budgets that couldn’t be explained in a single news story by a single reporter. That’s how they learned about landfill expansions. That’s how they found out about requests for zoning variances. But over the past few decades, that system has been under assault from people who would rather keep Hoosiers in the dark. Operating under the pretence of saving taxpayers’ dollars, lobbyists have successfully chopped away at the transparency provided by public notice advertising. Older readers will recall when school corporation expenditures were spelled out in claims reports. That was killed thanks to a joint effort by the Indiana State Teachers Association and the Indiana School Boards Association. Teachers didn’t like seeing their salaries pub-

The Wabash County Farm Bureau, Inc. will be holding their annual meeting on Wednesday, September 5, 2012. The meeting will be held at the Touchstone Center at the Wabash County REMC Building. We will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a meal that will be catered by the Heartland Career Center. The cost is $5 per person and tickets must be purchased no later than August 31, 2012, at the Farm Bureau Insurance office in either Wabash or North Manchester. Anyone holding a paid membership with the Wabash County Farm Bureau, Inc. is invited to attend. Again tickets must be purchased no later than August 31, 2012.

lished. School boards didn’t like the public looking over their shoulder. Older readers will also recall when the county commissioners claims for expenditures were routinely spelled out the same way. That was targeted by the Association of Indiana Counties, though most rural county officials will tell you they had no problem with making sure things were public. Fact is, there has been a war on public notice advertising in Indiana for at least 20 years. And the latest arrogance from IDEM is just the latest assault. Those trying to keep Hoosiers in the dark will argue that it’s all about the money. But when the Office of Air Quality at IDEM said that eliminating the publication requirement could save $7,500, the Hoosier State Press Association offered to take over the job of placing public notice ads and handling tearsheets. At no charge. It’s not the money. This newspaper would survive without public notice advertising. But you — the reader, the citizen, the taxpayer, the voter — would be shortchanged. And you’d be in the dark. Then again, that seems to be what some folks want.

Peru Post Participating in Impaired Driving Crackdown PERU—Through Monday, Sept. 3, Indiana State Police Troopers working from the Indiana State Police Peru Post, in conjunction with over 250 other Indiana law enforcement agencies, will work overtime as part of the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” crackdown on impaired and dangerous drivers. The crackdown started Friday, Aug. 17, and will continue through Labor Day. Troopers will work overtime in an effort to increase visibility on Indiana roadways as they conduct

enforcement activities designed to identify and arrest impaired drivers. Officers will also be watching for dangerous and aggressive drivers, as well as those who are not properly restrained with a seat belt or child safety seat. The Indiana State Police remains committed to reducing injuries and fatalities on Hoosier highways caused by crashes involving impaired, aggressive, or distracted drivers. In an ongoing effort to reduce injuries and deaths troopers will strictly enforce traffic laws that are lead-

worked for the General Motors Corporation and traveled to various companies before retiring from General Motors. The trunk is in perfect condition. It even has his name intact and his customs sticker on the side with the name of “Strange� quite visible. Charlie has no idea where the trunk has been over

all these years. It quietly disappeared during some of his moves. It’s now back with its rightful owner who was more than happy to take it home. Charlie is now 82 years old and lives in Wabash. His son Rod lives in Costa Rica and his son Doug lives in Florida. He also has two grandsons. His sister,

Frances Norman and brother, Harold Strange live in the Lagro area. Two brothers, Richard and Carroll, and a daughter, Cindy, are deceased.

By J.D. Sparks A far better start to the 2012 football season for the Peru Tiger football team didn’t bode well for the Apaches during a 26-6 season-opening loss. In 2011, Peru starting quarterback Tarran Townsend suffered a season-ending injury during his team’s very first play from scrimmage, a 37-0 Apache victory. Friday, the Tigers’ first play was the polar opposite. Townsend connected with an unguarded Shane Swinford down the right sideline for a 71-yard touchdown pass. Eddie Childers’ extra-point kick gave the Tigers a 7-0 lead with 11:25 left in the first. “We weren’t paying attention,” said Floyd McWhirt, the Apaches’ Head Coach. “It was a mistake by our corner. When that happens the first play of the game, you can just see the heads roll. “It can’t happen like that.

We have to be better and we have to be more focused on the field.” Peru Head Coach Bob Prescott added: “It was a situation where we looked at some film and we were trying to find a matchup for Shane Swinford. We just got fortunate their safety didn’t come over. At that point in time, I was thinking ‘Just don’t drop the pass.’” The Tigers went up13-0 at halftime and took a 26-0 lead before the Apaches scored. On its next touchdown drive, Peru converted a pair of fourth downs, marching 64 yards to pay dirt. Townsend found the end zone on a oneyard quarterback plunge. Peru’s lead ballooned to 26-0 in a two-minute span during the third quarter. Townsend scored on his second rushing touchdown, a three-yard barreling run through the middle with 6:44 remaining in the

Squires stumble early against Mississinewa

By Gary Andrews It was opening night of football at Manchester High School and the Squires hosted the Mississinewa Indians and experienced an early set back, falling 20-8. The Squires, experiencing a youth movement with several key positions being filled with under classmen, would get a true test right off the bat, facing an offensive line that averaged close to 250 pounds. After a shaky start dug the Squires a deep hole, they held their own in the second half,

holding the Indians scoreless and falling 20-8 after trailing 20-0 after the first half. The Manchester defense stopped Mississinewa threeand-out on their first possession and forced the Indians to punt. The Squires fumbled the ball on the first snap with an Indian defender picking it up and racing 58 yards for a touchdown to lead 6-0 with just two minutes gone off the clock. Manchester took their second possession and, behind Evan Milam, Evan Olinger

and Jacob Casper, consumed the clock on a 6:27 drive before giving the ball up on downs. The Indians next snap was a 78-yard scamper for a touchdown. While dominating the time, the Squires trailed 13-0 after the first quarter. Manchester started the second quarter with the ball on the 45. Gunner Ream took the first snap of the quarter to the Indian 32-yard line before Jacob Casper would drag a host of Mississinewa defenders on the next play to the 15. (continued on page 27)

Norse take Tom-A-Hawk title Apaches place 11th The Norse girls volleyball team posted a 4-0 record Saturday at North Miami en route to earning a Tom-A-Hawk title. Wabash went 1-3 and took 11th. The Norse bested Northwestern 25-11, 18-25, 15-11, in round one and Lakeland 25-11, 25-9 in round two. In pool play, Northfield defeated North Judson 25-18, 25-23 and North Miami 25-18, 25-12 in the title round.

”We have never went into Tomahawk without playing a game, so we had lots of first game jitters throughout the day,” said Norse Head Coach Angie Dale in a press release. “It gets us out of our comfort zone in our gym because of the three weeks of practice and lets us really see where we are and where we have to go. “Our ball control was excellent throughout the day and to come out with the overall win is quite the encouragement to

start the season. But, for these girls, they know we have more to do.” Arie Kennedy’s 31 service points were tops for Northfield. She also had 30 digs and 12 kills. Emily Shafer picked up 42 digs, while Gentry Kline had 19 digs. Kylie Echard led with 12 blocks and 36 kills. Elaina Terrell added 19 kills and five blocks. Tori Snyder had 17 kills and Cherish Leming added five blocks and six kills.

The Apaches fell to Oak Hill 23-25, 25-19, 15-7, North Judson 23-25, 25-18, 16-14, Eastbrook 25-15, 25-13, and Lakeland 25-13 and 25-17. Lyndsie Thomas paced the Apaches with 33 digs, 20 kills, 20 service points and four aces. Shelby Stone added 30 digs and Kayla Sparling had 26 digs. Claire Cromer added 24 assists, 22 service points and eight aces. Charli Pardo had 18 assists and Sarah Puckett added nine kills.


Football wrap up Norse, Knights fall on the road

One point separated the Norse and Knight football teams from their opponents on the road Friday night. The Norse fell at Bluffton 20-19, breaking Northfield’s three-game win streak against the Tigers. Meanwhile, Southwood nearly broke a seven-game losing streak dating back to 2004 to Southern Wells, but fell 28-27. Here’s what happened: Norse football squad falls The Northfield football team dropped its season opener at Bluffton Friday, 20-19. Quarterback Austin Curless was 1-for11 for seven yards with three interceptions. He collected 59 yards on 16 rushes and a pair of touchdowns. Andy Roser rushed for 103 yards on 24 carries, including an eight-yard touchdown run. On defense, Roser had a pair of tackles, four assists, a tackle for a loss, and a fumble recovery. Curless intercepted a pass. The Norse take on Triton at home Friday evening. Southern Wells edge Knights Southwood’s football team fell 28-27 to Southern Wells at Eastbrook Friday night. Robbie Cole was 19-for-36 passing for 312 passing yards and three touchdowns with one interception. Nathan Hollars had 20 carries for 57 yards and a score. Danny Goff had six receptions for 108 yards and a touchdown. Ryan Skeens caught four passes for 108 yards and a touchdown. Garrett Porter added a 19yard touchdown pass. Southwood plays again at home Friday against Oak Hill.

North Manchester collects $100 from renters and $75 from home owners, Lagro collects $50, Wabash City does not collect a deposit at this time but they are also in the process of initiating a meter deposit fee. Council decides they will wait to make a decision on this. Town Council drove around and selected 17 streetlights that could possibly be taken out/turned off by Duke Energy. There is no charge by Duke to have the lights removed. Approximate savings of $200 per month ($3,480 per year) If lights were ever put back in, Duke would charge us the “new” rate, which is $5 more per light than our current “locked in” rate. Council decides they will not be taking any light out at this time. Sanitation rates should increase next month by $2. Metronet fiber-optic internet will be coming to The Town of LaFontaine. It may be January before it gets here. Utility Bill Adjustments all approved by council: Edwin harness-leak, Connie Stout-leak, Jean Sneed- high consumption, Christa Carter-leak Rolling Meadows submitted a

proposal of what they will do about our pumps being plugged by their towels, etc. Utility Supervisor talked to Steve Brock about a water utility rate increase. There are no records of a second increase to the rates which was written up to be implemented years ago after the last increase. Discussion was held of the selling of the old police building (22 West Branson). Hearing in September Sale, Sale in October. The resolution to sell the building on 22 West Branson was approved. The question was asked how much money was given to the town per police ticket. The town only receives $2 per ticket. Hydrant flushing is completed. This is recommended by AWWA. Annual Water testing will be conducted soon. Many loads of scrap have hauled out of the new utility building. There is a large tree still down at park. It needs to be cut up and removed. Meeting was adjourned at 8:11 p.m. Next meeting will be at 7 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 10 in the LaFontaine Town Hall. If you would like a complete report go to the LaFontaine Town Hall to get a copy.

Liam Kirtlan wins LIFE Center’s annual Precious Baby photo contest by Danielle Swan As part of its annual fundraising efforts, the Wabash County LIFE Center held its Precioius Baby photo contest during the Wabash County 4-H Fair. “Each year, we line the contestants’ photos up and number them,” Cheryl Meyer, Executive Director of the LIFE Center said. “Visitors to the fair could place their donation in any amount, in whatever jar they chose.” According to Meyer, the proceeds are then used to help the LIFE Center purchase items such as prenatal vitamins, diapers, and pregnancy information for its many clients.

zone. Wabash finally found an offensive rhythm on its next possession. Tyler Brewer, who collected 93 yards on the ground, 85 of those coming in the second half, scampered into the end zone on an 11-yard rush with under a minute left in the third. His scoring run ended an 11-play, 78yard drive where three different Wabash players carried the ball including B r e w e r . Quarterback Kodi Clemons had four rushes for 37 yards and Caleb Hipskind converted a fourthand-six play with a 16yard run. Wabash recovered the ensuing onside kick, but a Tiger fumble recovery halted the drive. The fumble lost was the Apaches’ fifth turnover the game. Overall, Wabash turned the ball over six times. Clemons, a sophomore, threw a trio of picks in his first start at the Apaches’ varsity quarterback. His first came with 20 seconds left in the first half on a second-andgoal play from Peru’s five-yard line. Kegan Kern pilfered a Clemons pass with 7:13 left in the fourth quarter. Peru didn’t record an interception all throughout the 2011 season. “Kodi, he was really down on himself after throwing three interceptions,” said McWhirt. “That’s just how he

is. He’s extremely competitive. I told him he’ll be fine. I told him ‘Hey, you did a good job.’ We had a quarterback last year that threw seven interceptions in a game. Three is nowhere near that. He did a really good job.” Overall, Clemons was 9-for-23 for 66 yards passing. He rushed the ball 16 times for 123 yards—a team high. Chase Dirig led all Apache receivers with a pair of catches for 19 yards. Justin

The offense stalled and gave the ball up on downs, missing a scoring oppurtunity. Mississnewa would mount a drive, marching down to the Squire six-yard line. The Manchester defense tightened and forced a fourth and goal on the six before a broken play ended up being a sixâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;yard scoring pass and the Indians were up 20-0 with 2:07 to play. Manchester Head Coach Brandon Baker said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The coaching staff was very happy that this team did not give up and kept

bringing it the whole game.â&#x20AC;? The Squires showed some of that grit the last two minutes, taking a drive from their own 35 and, with a Jacob Casper 29-yard run, were knocking on the door with 17 seconds remaining. Again, the Squires would give the ball up on a fumble and trailed 20-0 at the half. After the success of moving the ball at the end of the half, the Squires came out inspired in the second half. Manchester took the ball first and mounted a 64-yard

drive behind Casper and Olinger that was capped off by quarterback Jim Sainsbury sneak for a touchdown and a two point conversion with 6:48 left in the third, making the score 20-8. The Indians were on the move again before

Lucas Schilling recovered a fumble on the Squire 28 to stop the drive. Which what seemed to be the theme for the game, the Squires moved the ball only to fumble it away right before the end of the quarter. Mississnewa led 20-8

after three. Both defenses would dominate in the fourth, as neither team could penetrate deep in opposing territory and the final score stayed at 20-8. Jacob Casper paced the Squire rushing attack with 119 yards
