MSD of Wabash County launches 1 to 1 computing initiative at area schools

by Brent Swan After nearly three years of planning and discussion, the Metropolitan School District (MSD) of Wabash County unveiled it’s new Apple MacBooks Aug. 24 at Northfield High School as part of its newly implemented 1to-1 computing initiative. Within the MSD district, every student, regardless of grade, received one of two electronic devices as part of this initiative. “Kindergartners through second graders will receive Ipads. Third graders through 12th graders will get MacBook Airs,” MSD of Wabash County Superintendent Dr. Sandra Weaver said. “The Ipads will remain in the classrooms, while the MacBooks will remain the students’ own personal computers for several years.” Third graders and older will be able to take the laptops home with them after school hours and will be able to take them wherever they go. “We encourage the students to personalize these computers

and make them theirs,” Dr. Weaver said. “We will get the laptops back over summer break, but we do want them to take them with them on vacations or wherever else they may go during the school year.” After each summer break concludes, Dr. Weaver said each student will then receive his or her computer they held the previous year. “I’m not sure how many schools across the state of Indiana can say they have completed a program like this across their entire district like we have,” Dr. Weaver said. “We believe our kids power down when they come to school, and we don’t want it to be that way. We think these computers are a tool that will allow us to open up opportunities for our kids.” The initiative was funded after the MSD of Wabash County borrowed $3.3 million on a loan with an interest rate below one percent. “We will have that loan paid back in full within four years,” Dr. Weaver explained. “With the interest

rate we got, the actual cost to taxpayers is less than the previous quote.” As many computers grow outdated in a relatively short amount of time, Dr. Weaver stated the laptops will be replaced in four years, and will cost the school district less the next time around. “In four years, the seniors will be presented with the option of purchasing the computers they had carried throughout their high school career,” Dr. Weaver said. “Those that are not purchased by the seniors will be purchased back by Apple through their buyback program.” It wasn’t until after much thought that the district decided on purchasing Apple products for the classrooms. “This (project) has been in the works for three years,” Dr. Weaver said of the amount of time invested. “You have to start by staffing the tech and support departments to form the foundation for this type of initiative. You then have to have

by Brent Swan For instructor Terry Shoemaker, Heartland Career Center’s offering of a class dedicated to precision machining is another step in the process of training students with the practical skill needed to qualify for a job following their years in high school. “We teach the practical side of this trade,” Shoemaker said. “Let’s say you have a part and you tell me you need a spacer to go onto that part, here in Precision Machining, we’ll make that part.” Shoemaker said the fall 2012 semester marks the first semester of the second year of the

CVB announces new Wabash County welcome center location The Wabash County Convention and Visitors Bureau, Inc. (CVB) is pleased to announce 221 S. Miami Street as the future location for the new welcome center for Wabash County. The property is owned by Michael and Angie Beauchamp of Conflux and Confluence, Inc., and will house the organization beginning in Jan. 2013. Currently, the CVB rents a 336 square feet

office with an additional 300 square feet of storage space from the Wabash County Historical Museum. The new location is 2,500 square feet and will be built to suit the welcome center’s needs. “The CVB has simply outgrown its current location inside of the museum,” stated Daryl Evans, board president for the organization. “The board of directors recognizes the importance of a

larger operating space as the CVB continues to increase the organization’s services,” continued Evans. The CVB has rented space from the Wabash County Historical Museum for nearly ten years. The future site of the welcome center was once owned by Linley A. Dawes in the 1880s. The building was the L. A. Dawes Livery Sale & Boarding Stable; a stable where horses, teams and wagons were for hire, but also where privatelyowned horses could be boarded for a short time. Mr. Dawes operated the livery stable for over twenty-two years until he traded it for 140 acres of land in Noble Township.

The new welcome center will show case some of the building’s historic architectural features which include two interior archways measuring 7’ X 8’ that connected the livery office to the stable, an exposed brick wall and original hardwood floors. “I want this to be one of the best convention and visitors bureaus in the state,” said Michael Beauchamp regarding the property’s renovations. “A lot of unique amenities have been worked into the construction plans,” said Beauchamp. Mikhail New is the general contractor executing the project and has partnered with Angie Delauter as the lead interior designer.

The proposed floor plan includes a retail sales floor, kitchenette, welcome desk, handicap assessable restrooms, private office and conference room. “The new welcome center’s location and size will enable the CVB staff to connect with predestination traffic, act as a first stop for large groups and host educational trainings for frontline service staff,” said Christine Flohr, executive director of tourism. “Michael and Angie (Beauchamp) are the perfect partners on this project and the CVB board of directors is grateful for their vision and dedication to the county.”

DNR reminds hunters about baiting laws for dove and waterfowl

Before dove and waterfowl hunters take to drought-affected fields this hunting season, they should take time first to review baiting laws. Baiting can be a complicated issue. It can become more complicated in years in which drought conditions have pushed many farmers to destroy their standing agricultural crops. It is imperative that hunters keep in mind what is legal and what is not legal during waterfowl and dove hunting seasons. What is legal? Hunters can hunt waterfowl on, over, or from: * Standing crops or flooded standing crops * Standing, flooded, or manipulated natural vegetation * Flooded harvested croplands * Lands or areas where grains or topsown seeds have been scattered solely as the result of normal agricultural practices. Hunters can hunt doves on, over or from: * Standing crops * Lands where seeds or grain have been scattered solely as a result of normal agricultural practices * Lands planted as wildlife food plots * Lands planted as pasture improve-

ments or for the purpose of grazing livestock. * Standing or manipulated natural vegetation * Agricultural crops that have been manipulated. What is illegal? You cannot hunt waterfowl in: * Areas where grain or seed has been topsown. * Crops that have been harvested outside of the recommended harvest dates. * Unharvested crops that have been trampled by livestock or subjected to other types of manipulations that scatter, distribute or expose the grain. * Freshly planted wildlife food plots that contain exposed grain. * Areas where grain is present or stored. * Croplands where a crop has been harvested and the removed grain is redistributed or “added back” onto the area where it was grown. Hunters cannot hunt doves in: * Areas where grain, seed, salt or feed has been placed, exposed, deposited, distributed or scattered. * Areas where grain is in piles or other concentrations. * Freshly planted

wildlife food plots that contain exposed grain. It is legal to hunt doves on, over, or from manipulated agricultural lands. It is NOT legal to hunt waterfowl on, over, or from manipulated agricultural lands. Below are a few potentially common scenarios for the u p c o m i n g dove/waterfowl seasons. * If a farmer mows his agricultural fields in September due to crop insurance payments, a hunter cannot hunt it for waterfowl because

waterfowl cannot be hunted over manipulated agricultural lands. However, this field can be hunted for doves. * If a wildlife food plot is planted a few weeks before you are going to dove or waterfowl hunt, can you hunt it? Yes, if the grain is not exposed. * You decide to put out grain to attract birds. It has been eight days since you last put out grain. Can you hunt this area? No. An area is considered baited until 10 days after all the grain has been removed from the area.

a whole. Automated Egg has recently begun hiring C o m m u n i t y Corrections Work Release and C o m m u n i t y Transition inmates to work at their North Manchester facility. Wabash Circuit Court Judge Robert McCallen said, “We are pleased and grateful to Automated Egg for their involvement in our Wabash County Community Corrections program. All of society benefits when we work together to help people to safely and appropriately transition back to our community encouraging them to live a law abiding life.” Work Release offers locally sentenced inmates the chance to maintain their jobs and support their families while they serve their sentence in the Wabash County Jail. The Community Transition Program

offers Department of Correction inmates, who are returning to Wabash County, the opportunity to obtain employment and reestablish themselves in the community prior to their official release from prison. Superior Court Judge Christopher Goff echoed similar thoughts by saying “a responsibility to support yourself and your family is one of the primary duties that we place

on members of our community. We applaud Automated Egg for its pioneering efforts in providing that opportunity to those whose past actions have made fulfilling that duty more difficult.” Blake Casper, Production Manager, was on hand to receive the plaque from the Community C o r r e c t i o n s Advisory Board on behalf of Automated Egg.

4 Reduced cattle herd could mean bigger profits starting late 2013

The U.S. beef herd has been shrinking, and the worst drought in decades has only encouraged that trend to continue. But for beef producers who can withstand the financial hardship over the next several months, reduced beef supplies could mean

August 29, 2012

bigger profits starting as early as late 2013. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s midyear cattle inventory report showed beef cow numbers dropped by 3 percent in the last year. It projects the 2012 calf crop to be down 2 percent

from last year, and down 8 percent since 2006. Part of what has been driving the decline is skyrocketing feed costs and prolonged drought in the Southern Plains, said Chris Hurt, Purdue Extension agricultural economist. “This year’s drought likely means further decreases in cow numbers over the next 12-14 months,” he said. “The impacts of the drought are just beginning to show up in some of the national data. We do know the direction, but not the final magnitude.” Since mid-June, corn prices have jumped by 60 percent


‘the paper’ PETS OF THE WEEK Available For Adoption At The Wabash County Animal Shelter:

and soybean meal prices by 25 percent. And according to the USDA, 82-92 percent of the pastures in Indiana, Illinois, Arkansas, Missouri, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado are in very poor or poor condition. The lack of available feed crops and forages and the high prices for what is available have forced many producers to start culling their herds. As more cattle have entered the market, the value of calves and feeder cattle has fallen. “In the wake of high feed prices and uncertainty regarding forage availability, calf and feeder cattle

prices plummeted,” Hurt said. For example, Oklahoma steer calf prices were $173 per hundredweight in mid-June but fell to $138 in late July. A $35 per hundredweight decline on a 550pound calf is a nearly $200 per-head value reduction. “Multiplying that across a national calf crop of 34.5 million head totals a potential decline in value of nearly $7 billion,” he said. “It is still too early to count the actual damages, but this illustration shows it’s likely large.” The silver lining, Hurt said, could be for producers who are able to weather the

financial storm and hold onto their herds. As cattle numbers fall below beef consumer demand, prices should rebound. Producers likely best positioned to keep their herds are those who locked in lower feed prices in the spring. That would mostly include large feedlots that tend to hedge on feed and feed cost and profit margins. “The message for cow-calf producers is to hold onto the cows if possible,” Hurt said. “The short-term losses of the next 12 to 14 months will be replaced by large profits in late-2013, 2014 and 2015.” Hurt said the anticipated “golden days”

are based on reductions in per-capita beef supplies, leading to higher retail beef prices, and an expected return to more normal crop conditions in 2013. While that could revive some optimism in the cattle industry, Hurt was quick to point out that most thoughts of herd expansion would be pushed off until late 2013. “The exception is for producers in areas of the country that have abundant forages,” he said. “For them, buying cows sold this fall from distressed owners appears to be a strategic move.”

Drought continued to ease in southwest Indiana in the past week as that area of the state hit hardest by the summer’s drought benefited from August rains, an update of the U.S. Drought Monitor on Thursday (Aug. 23) showed. Some areas of southwest Indiana that had been in exceptional drought the highest level of dryness - for several

weeks improved to extreme drought, still far from full recovery but improving. There was some slight improvement in central Indiana, which was in less critical levels of dryness, from significant rainfall Indiana has been getting this month. “Most of the improvement in the drought status this past week was in the southwest,” said Ken Scheeringa, associate

state climatologist based at Purdue U n i v e r s i t y. “Elsewhere, there’s not a lot of change from a week ago.” Scheeringa noted that August rainfall to date in Indiana has averaged near 3.1 inches, 20 percent above normal. Since the start of this year, state average rainfall is about 20.1 inches. Rainfall deficits so far range from 5.8 inches across northern

Indiana to 11.5 inches in the far southwest. The forecast for the remainder of August was for less-than-normal rainfall but above-normal precipitation in the first week of September, Scheeringa said. Temperatures were expected to be above normal through the period. The uncertainty of the rainfall pattern in the coming months will be compounded by land-falling tropical cyclones and their tracks, said Dev Niyogi, state climatologist. “Another challenge we have is to try to balance the drought designation based on the rains that will occur versus the longer-term impacts that are already under way,” he said.

August rains give relief to Indiana; drought still far from over

MSD of Wabash County.... continued from front page administrators that share this vision and a board that shares this vision. “We went to Chicago and met with Mac computer representatives. We talked a great deal about going with PC’s, but in the end, Apple was much more affordable. A PC-based computer ran on average $600 more per machine than the MacBooks.” Dr. Weaver also said that each classroom within the buildings have been updated to include wireless access points and high speed, fiber optic Internet service. “Our goal is to open

a building in the north and a building in the south to allow the kids and parents the opportunity to come in and work on these laptops if they don’t have access to the internet at home,” Dr. Weaver said. “This is a very exciting opportunity that our school board and administration have allowed for our kids,” Northfield Principal Mike Keaffaber said, “Teachers have been completing training over the summer to be prepared for this. The staff will continuously work to improve in all areas and use these MacBooks to their full potential.”

Khloe Stockton is born

Travis and Kari Stockton, N o r t h M a n c h e s - t e r, are the proud parents of a d a u g h t e r, Khloe Rene Stockton. She was born Aug. 1 at 8:58 a.m. and weighed 6 pounds 7.9 ounces and was 17.5 inches long. Her mother is the former Kari Dilsaver. Grandparents are Jerald and Denise Dilsaver, Urbana and Dale and Sherri Stockton, Lewisville. Honorary grandparents are Pete and Michell Dupont, LaFontaine.

Part of the potential these laptops provide is immediate and up to date access to nearly any Internet site, from Google to YouTube. Students have even been able to view lectures from Massachusetts Institute of Technology on YouTube. “There are so many educational sites our kids can now utilize,” Dr. Weaver said. “It is amazing. We will still have books in class, but we are transitioning to where most of our curriculum will be on the computer. They are still textbooks, but electronic versions of tradition-

al textbooks.” Dr. Weaver said that the tech staff is able to track student activities to ensure no inappropriate content is viewed or downloaded, whether at school, on spring break, or while at McDonald’s. “We will continue to use the same filters we have always had at the schools,” Dr. Weaver explained of the security features. “We know some kids will try to figure out a way around it. As soon as students realize we check it every day, the number of kids trying to get around it will go down.

Randomly, our tech staff will select 6-10 laptops and go through them to ensure nothing inappropriate has been downloaded or looked at.” Overall, Dr. Weaver said the experience has been an overwhelming success up to this point. “Teachers now have a different way of instructing and kids now have a different way of learning,” Dr. Weaver said. “It’s pushing us to a higher level across the district.”

Heartland Career Center... continued from front page program. “What we are hoping to accomplish is to allow this program to grow into its own,” Shoemaker said. “There are jobs out there where someone that has completed this program will have a head start on those that have no training. When these students leave the program, they will be machinists.”

Within surrounding area, Shoemaker pointed out there are quality jobs available within the trade. “If you look around the Wabash County area, you have Warsaw with BioMet, Zimmer, and all the medical industries, you have Fort Wayne, and you have tool and dies here in Wabash County. There are jobs to be had.”

As part of the course, Shoemaker teaches students how to develop from the basics such as machine setup to the more advanced design programs for the automated machines. In the fall 2012 semester, Shoemaker has 10 students including two or three sophomores. “Some of the kids within the program now have the potential to be here for quite a while,” Shoemaker added. “If they leave here after finishing the course, I can’t imagine them not being able to find a job that suits the skills they have learned while at Heartland. There is a lot of potential.” Shoemaker said 10 students is a nice way for him to enter the program, but he hopes to see the program grow into the future. “We have adjusted the class itself to become more student friendly and create a more positive learning environment,” Shoemaker said. “We’ll continue to focus on the ins and outs of the machines, but also allow the kids the opportunity to create their own projects. “It’s still a learning process, but I think everything seems to be moving along s m o o t h l y , ” Shoemaker said of the transition. “I’m excited for this opportunity and look forward to continuing it into the future.”

Agnew, a contemporary and Christian musician and songwriter, has produced eight albums in his career and is best known for his for his song “Grace Like Rain,” a version of “Amazing Grace.” Agnew’s most recent album How To Be Loved reveals what happens when an artist used to writing music solo co-writes an album with a handful of gifted, imaginative colleagues. Gray, also a contemporary and Christian musician and songwriter, spent six years in youth ministry before going into music ministry in 1999. Since entering the music scene, he has released 10 albums. Gray’s song “Fade With Our Voices” demonstrates his passion for serving the poor as a form of worship and his advocacy for AIDS orphans. The concert will be held on the Eagles Theatre stage at 106 W. Market St. in Wabash. Tickets may be purchased at the Honeywell Center box office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mon. through Fri. by calling (260) 563-1102 or by visiting

Signs believes Bio-fuel stand may cost Mourdock Dear editor, Melinda Henneberger;s column (“Gauging the Lugar backlash,” Aug. 7) spells out why Richard Mourdock’s Senate race with Joe Donnelly could go down to the wire in November. The farm vote he is ignoring could make the difference. Farmers will not forget his strong negative position on bio-fuel in his debate with Sen. Richard Lugar. Bio-fuel production is the only “green energy” that is working. Wind and solar will fail when tax dollars dry up. Ethanol gave up its major tax incentive. Big oil’s federal tax breaks are between $3.6 billion and $4.5 billion each year. Last year, 14 billion gallons of ethanol provided 10 percent of the U.S. motor fuel supply. American ethanol; producers have created more than 400,000 good-paying jobs and pay more than $8 billion in federal, state and local taxes. Gasoline on average the last decade is 25 cents a gallon cheaper because of the inclusion of ethanol. Ethanol reduces greenhouse emissions by up to 50 percent compared to gasoline. The only part of corn used to produce ethanol is the starch. The product left, distiller dried grain, is marketed for the production of beef and some pork. I know Donnelly supports bio-fuel production, but his close ties with Warren Buffett turn me off. I know Mourdock is an educated geologist, but if he doesn’t look at bio-fuel production with an open mind, he could go back to looking at rocks. Charles W. Signs, North Manchester

Sinking boat nearly results in drowning at Mississinewa Reservoir I n d i a n a Conservation Officers are investigating a boat accident which occurred at M i s s i s s i n ew a Reservoir on Saturday at approximately 1:05 p.m. Christopher Morris, 30, Kokomo, was operating a 1972, 12-foot v-bottom fishing boat near the Red Bridge Ramp as he waited for his friend to back the boat trailer into the water for pickup. Morris stated that a couple of small waves came in over the stern (back) of the boat where he was sitting and the boat very quickly took on water and stood straight up and sank. Morris’ foot was stuck between the gear in the stern of the boat and he was unable to immediately free himself. As the boat sank, it pulled Morris under water with it about 5-8 feet before Morris successfully freed his foot and swam to the surface. A passing boat picked up Morris and took him to shore. Witnesses stated it took the boat only a few seconds to totally

submerge once it began taking on water. Morris was not wearing his life jacket. Indiana Conservation Officer Scuba Divers recovered the boat in 22 feet of water. Investigating Officer Jerry Hoerdt encourages everyone to wear their life while boating as accidents such as this are unpredictable and happen very fast. Hoerdt believes the boat likely had too much weight concentrated in the stern of the boat. There was an outboard motor with gas tank, trolling motor with battery, and the weight of Morris all at the stern end, which virtually eliminated any freeboard for the boat. Freeboard is described as the amount of watercraft hull exposed between the water line and the top gunwale edge of the boat. Boaters are advised to match their boat and boating skills with the body of water they intend to recreate on. Small boats such as Morris’ can capsize and become swamped with water very easily.

First, our tireless committee workers, which include: Mr. and Mrs. Bob (Sheryl) Bishop, Pat Bricker, M. and Mrs. Bill (Linette) Burchett and Karsyn Bratch, Theresa Carroll, Mr. and Mrs. Jerry (Tammy) Conley, Terry Conley, Izabelle and Shelby David, Mr. and Mrs. Todd (Mary Ann) Dazy, Molly and Madelyn; also, Mr. and Mrs. Mark (Diane) Guenin, Julie Hilton and family; Krista Hoover, Winter Lawson of Four Seasons Photography, John Lehner, Karen Leslie, Shirley Mackey, Becky Mast, Judy Miller, Mr. and Mrs. Dave (Lee Ann) Pefly, Janet Poole, Mary Porter and the Girl Scouts, Buck Rodman, Crystal Teague and Ashler Teague, Natalie Unger, Mr. and Mrs. Tom (Becki) Wagoner and Melinda Walter. From the beginning of March, these people met nearly every week to assure that all Karsyn Kares events ran smoothly and without event. It seems nearly all of the businesses in Wabash donated in some way large or small, but we owe a particular debt of gratitude to Commercial Printing of Lagro, Milliner Printing Company, Midwest Eye, the Wabash Parks Department, Greg Harnish, Brian Howenstine of True

Value Hardware, Pefley Farm Implement, Big R and Wabash County Hospital. Also, WKUZ radio, Wabash Plain Dealer, Seyfert Potato ships and Poole Foods, Phil Delta Kappa, Sandy Kunkel, Beverly Kohn (Michigan), Etna Acres Gold Course and the corporate contributors toward the golf outing. Finally, we must thank everyone who donated for silent auction items, those who purchased tenderloin tickets, participated in the first ever citywide yard sale at Paradise Spring, collected pledges and walked in the Karsyn Kares Walkathon; to the many people who stopped by and donated toward our campaign without expecting anything in return, and the eighteen teams that had a fun day playing golf at Etna Acres. We had donations totaling $1,200 from young girls wanting to help that were still pre-teens. Shelby and Bella Reynolds had a bake sale at their church; Emma Fulmer set up a lemonade stand at Walmart, and Madison Johnson requested that her friends donate to Karsyn Kares in lieu of buying her birthday presents. This is America’s future, and I am so proud of these kids and welcome them as a part of our team. We will be presenting a check to Sam and Shelley Hipskind for their son, Matthew to remodel a bathroom for handicap

accessibility. A donation is being made to Jeff and Danielle Castle to help defray expenses in travel to the doctor for their daughter, Emma. A substantial amount of money is being put in escrow and announce-

FFW Corporation releases quarterly and year-end earnings statement FFW Corporation, parent-corporation of Crossroads Bank, announced earnings for the quarter and year ended June 30. For the year ended June 30, 2012, the Corporation reported net income of $593,000 or $0.11 per common share compared to $2,674,000 or $1.96 per common share fort he year ended June 30, 2011. The provision for loan losses increased from $1,445,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011 to $4,800,000 for the year ended June 30, 2012. The additional provision recorded in fiscal year 2012 is primarily due to a loss on a commercial credit in which Crossroads Bank, the wholly owned subsidiary of FFW Corporation, was a participating lender and not the lead loan servicer. The loan was secured by a life insurance policy, whose value was dissipated through fraudulent actions of the borrower. The reasons for the loss are still being investigated, but the Bank is vigorously pursuing actions necessary to seek recovery of the loss. Total noninterest income was $3,339,000 for the year ended June 30, 2012 and $3,201,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011. Noninterest expense was $8,252,000 for the year ended June 30, 2012 and $7,990,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011. Due to the aforementioned loan loss, the quarter ended June 30, 2012 resulted in a net loss of $1,536,000 or negative $1.47 per common

share. As a result of the loss, the Corporation will not declare and pay a common shareholder dividend for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. The Corporation expects to resume the common dividend when the Corporation returns profitable status in succeeding quarters. Roger K. Cromer, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “The loan loss we experienced in the current quarter was both unexpected and disappointing. The Bank has made significant efforts in reduction of nonperforming assets and capital strengthening. Without the impact of the loss, the Bank would have reported net income of approximately $2.8 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012. While the final earnings were not what we had anticipated, the additional provision recorded in the current year and the efforts to otherwise reduce nonperforming assets have improved the overall balance sheet condition of the Bank in that the nonperforming ratios are the lowest in 8 quarters and the strength of the loan loss allowance as a percentage of the loans is the highest it has ever been. We continue to remain positive in these difficult economic times and are committed to working through the issues we have faced. We are taking all possible steps t seek a recovery of the significant loan loss we experienced this year.”

32 20

By J.D. Sparks Norse senior quarterback Austin Curless racked up 290 total yards of offense and three total touchdowns during Northfield’s 32-20 victory over Triton at Wilbur-Dawes Field Friday. “Curless was impressive running the offense,” Uggen told The Paper. “It’s tough coming off of a three-interception game and to come back and not turn the ball over. That was huge. He looked good running the option and had some accurate passes to (Jared) Kirtlan. The offensive line gave Curless a lot of time to throw, too. The offense did a nice job.” Curless collected 96 yards on the ground on 18 carries, including a two-yard scoring plunge, leading an option-based running attack that accumulated 275 yards. Through the air, he was 5-of-13 passing for 194 yards and two touchdowns. Senior receiver Jared Kirtlan caught four of those passes for 179 yards and both scores. Both touchdowns came in the first quarter. “We established the run and that really opened it up for Austin and Jared,” Uggen said. “Running the ball set up the passing game and passing set up the run. The offense looked like what it was supposed to (Friday).” Kirtlan’s first touchdown catch came eight plays after Alec Wells picked up a Triton fumble at Northfield’s eight-yard line. On the ninth play of the drive, Curless connected with Kirtlan for a 49-yard catch-and-run with four minutes and 12 seconds left in the first quarter, giving the Norse a 6-0 lead. Triton responded with a pair of long plays, including Cody Shively’s 23-yard touchdown run, putting the Trojans up briefly, 7-6, at the 2:33 mark. About a minute later, Kirtlan and Curless struck again. On a second-and-five play from their own 20-yard line, Kirtlan took about a 15yard pass from Curless to the end zone, an 80yard strike. A two-point conversion later and the Norse were up 14-7.

The Norse improved to 1-1 and now turn their attention to Three Rivers Conference-foe North Miami (1-1). (photo by Harold Chatlosh) After forcing a Trojan punt, later in the second Andy Roser capped a six-play drive of 65 yards with an 11-yard scoring burst through the middle of the Triton defense. His scoring scamper increased his team’s lead to 20-7. “Just like (against Bluffton), we were able to respond to their first touchdown pretty quickly,” Uggen said. “The kids reacted well to that situation, coming back with two touchdowns.” Curless scored again with about six minutes left in the third quarter, bulldozing his way into the end zone from two

Wabash lost 14-7 at Alexandria. Here’s what happened: Bluffton 26, Manchester 22 Four turnovers and a late touchdown spelled doom for the Squires Friday during its 26-22 home loss to Bluffton. Bluffton’s Josh Streveler scored on a one-yard touchdown run with three minutes left in the game to put the Tigers up for good. The Squires fumbled the ball six times and lost three of them. Bluffton also in-

yards out to end a half-opening drive. His touchdown all but closed out the game at 26-7. Triton scored once in the third and another time in the fourth, but couldn’t come within 12 points of the Norse. Wells scored from two yards away with seven minutes left in the game to end the Northfield scoring. Overall, Uggen was satisfied with the victory. “Our defense was kind of a bend-butnot-break situation,” he said. “I was also really impressed with Shane Vigar. It’s great to know we have

tercepted a Lucas Schilling pass. Jacob Casper led the Squire offense with 11 rushes for 108 yards, a touchdown, and a two-point conversion. Evan Milam added eight rushes for 70 yards and a touchdown. Jim Sainsbury was 4-for-8 for 91 yards through the air. Cody Harlan caught two passes for 58 yards and a touchdown. Nick Eubank sacked the Bluffton quarterback and recovered a fumble. Thad Miller also had a fumble recovery.

another running back to go with Andy and Alec. There’s always things you can tweak, though, and we’re going to continue to get better.” Wells rushed nine times for 66 yards and Roser had 16 carries for 65 yards to go with one catch for 15 yards. Vigar took the ball five times for 45 yards. On defense, Kirtlan added a pass deflection and a sack. Northfield, now 1-1, will set its sights on the first game of the Three Rivers Conference. The Norse travel to North Miami (1-1) Friday at 7 p.m.

Alexandria Monroe 14, Wabash 7 Wabash’s offense sputtered at Alexandria Monroe during a 14-7 road loss. The Apaches gained 260 yards and turned the ball over four times. Quarterback Kodi Clemons was 13-for-23 for 112 yards with an interception. He also ran 30 times for 108 yards and fumbled twice. Tyler Brewer added 43 rushing yards on 16 carries, including a five-yard touchdown run. He also had five receptions for 72 yards.

By Gary Andrews After last week’s one-point loss to Southern Wells, in a game where the Knights missed some opportunities, there were some high expectations Friday night with Oak Hill coming to Southwood. No one would have guessed what was about to happen as the Eagles put up 47 points in the first half on their way to a 61-21 win over Southwood. The adrenalin was flowing to start the game as kicker Joey Goff hammered the opening kick in to the end zone, forcing Oak Hill to start on their own 20. With the Eagles driving to midfield, Knight defenders Brett Wyatt, Shane Smith and Austin Schlemmer stuffed the line, forcing a loss and making it third and 14 for Oak Hill. Seconds later, Eagle quarterback Derek Durkes connected with Zack Daniels on a 49-yard pass play for a touchdown with 9:33 to go, giving the Eagles a 7-0 lead. The Knights, after being punched, would punch back. Nathan Hollars would take the kickoff back to midfield and, three plays later, scamper in from 26 yards out and with a Zach Hobson kick the score was tied at 7 with 8:16 to go. The Oak Hill offense would waste no time, marching down the field, with Kegan Anderson scoring at the 6:17 mark to put the Eagles back up 14-7. On Southwood’s next drive, Matt McDivitt would pick off Knight quarterback Robbie Cole and, one play later, catch a TD pass from Durkes with 4:35 left to lead 21-7. The

Knights were forced to punt on their next possession and the Eagles took advantage of it. Anderson would bust loose for a 68-yard TD run and Oak Hill increased their lead to 28-7. The quarter would end with the Knights mounting their own drive. On fourth and two, Cole would connect with Isaac Peebles to the Eagle 33, keeping the drive alive. Hollars would then go 29 yards to the Oak Hill four to set up the next Knight score. Cole pitched the ball to the left and was bobbled and picked up by Hollars, who then dropped the ball again before falling on it in the end zone for a Knight TD with 11:16 to go and it was 28-14. That’s when the wheels fell off for the Knights. Oak Hill would immediately score with 9:52 left and on Southwood’s next play, Derrick Randall picked off a Cole pass for a TD with 9:36 to go and it was quickly 41-14. With 58.7 remaining, Anderson would run it in from 12 yards out and in an eight-minute span the game was out of control at 47-14, which is where the half ended. The Knights got the ball first in the second half and six plays later were forced to punt. On Oak Hill’s second play, Daniels would bust loose for a 73yard scoring run with 8:53 to go to make it 54-14. With the Knights being forced to pass, the Oak Hill defense would step up one more time when Randall picked off a Cole pass and raced 67 yards down the sideline for a TD, making it 61-14 with 2:16 to go. The Knights would get the lone score in the fourth quarter when backup quarterback Joey Goff led a drive and scored himself with 4:47 to

LAST REMINDER FOR AUG. 23 BLOOD DRIVE in honor of Rod and Sara Haupert from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Urbana Community Building. HOST FAMILIES FOR HIGH SCHOOL EXCHANGE STUDENTS NEEDED: Northfield (and other Wabash County High Schools) families are needed to host high school exchange students for this school year – either the first semester, which has just started, or the second semester. Students can stay for either one or two semesters (most often, the entire school year), depending on what each high school is in agreement with. EF Foundation students are 15 to 18 years old and come from 25 countries including China, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Spain, Italy and Australia. Students are fully insured and bring their own spending money. Urbana-area resident Kristie Boyd has recently become an IEC (International Exchange Coordinator) for the EF Foundation, a foundation that is the leader in high school exchanges and has been in operation for 30 years. If you and your family would like to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity of hosting an Inter national Exchange Student, please contact Kristie Boyd at 260-438-3557 or Kristie will be glad to answer any questions you might have and give you more information. You can also go to the EF Foundation website at for a complete listing of countries who have students in the program and see a profile of students looking for a host family. URBANA LIONS CLUB GOLF SCRAMBLE: On Sept. 29 the

Sees Law Group John Thomas Sees Attorney-at-Law PICTURED IS THE URBANA SCHOOL, taken from a postcard with a postmark of 1907. The message on the postcard was addressed to Miss Alma Zentgrebe in Fair Haven, Mich., and posted with a one-cent stamp. The message on the card reads: “I thought I would sent you this card for your birthday because I could not get a birthday card. Will write more soon. This is the school I go to.” The handwriting (and spelling) would indicate the card was from a young child, but it is not signed. If anyone has any ideas on who the sender or receiver would have been, please contact Mary Ann Mast. (photo provided) Urbana Lions Club is holding their first golf scramble at the Waldo Golf course to raise money for lights at the Urbana ball field and other Lions projects. If you would like to play or help by sponsoring a hole, donating a door prize, or donating a small item for player “goody bags,” please contact any Urbana Lions Club member.

Urbana News...

could not get married for one year, and always had to be immaculately groomed. Linda’s mother, who lived in LaFontaine, was one of those women who answered the ad. She went to Rotan, New Mexico, and then to Arizona to work in one of Fred Harvey’s restaurants. Fred Harvey was the first restaurant owner to hire women as waitresses–a revolution-

ary idea in the 1940’s–when restaurants only hired African-American men to wait on tables. Mr. Harvey had restaurants all along the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad as well as in ten hotels. Linda had lots of personal stories of how her parents met and lived above one of Fred Harvey’s restaurants. She also had pictures of what the

waitresses wore during that time period and explained how their uniforms changed through the years. Linda will be giving a longer presentation of “The Harvey Girls’ at the Wabash Museum in Sept. Those present were: Donna Yentes, Lois Haupert, Kitty Baer, Jane Winebrenner, Martha Chamberlain, Mary Ann Mast, Eileen Weck, Martha

Pat found the card in an antique shop. The school in the picture burned around 1910. Patty said the buildings to the left of the school way in the background are on 500 West where the Eltzroth family now lives and where Carrie Haupert lived when she was growing up. The building to the right of the school is the horse barn where the horses that pulled the school buses were kept during the day. Patty said she remembers the horse barn was still there when she started to school in 1946. St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parsonage now stands where the horse barn once stood. If you look closely there is a little girl sitting on the front steps. The road in front of the school (now SR 13) was a gravel road when this picture was taken.

Cromwell man injured in shooting incident

I n d i a n a Conservation Officers are investigating a shooting incident that occurred at the Tri County shooting range on Aug. 18 around 5 p.m. According to Indiana Conservation Officer Nathan Hooley, Joseph Miretti was firing his Ruger 22/45 MKII pistol, which Joseph had altered by mounting a vertical foregrip to it. This type of foregrip is typically used on AR-15 type rifles. Joseph was firing the pistol when he went to adjust his left hand, which was holding the attached foregrip. While doing so, Joseph’s left index finger found its way in front of the muzzle while Joseph continued to fire the pistol. After shooting himself, Joseph was transported to Goshen General Hospital where he lost the tip of his left index finger. Officer Hooley stated this incident could have been avoided had Joseph not altered the pistol by attaching a piece of equipment that was not designed to be used in the manner in which Joseph used it. With the upcoming hunting seasons fast approaching, Indiana

Conservation Officers urge all hunters and recreational shooters to follow safe firearm handling procedures.

Some of these include but are not limited to knowing how to safely operate your firearm, always keeping the

muzzle pointed in a safe direction, always knowing what is beyond your target, and always treating

it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable. We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem. We have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today, cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Amen!
