Proudly Serving Wabash County Since 1977

World War II vet shares his story of active duty by Danielle Smith Walter Lengel’s story is similar to the stories of many American men in his age group: he was drafted and served three years in various countries for the duration of World War II. Although many men shared this same experience, they each have unique memories of their time spent overseas. Lengel was drafted in 1943 at 20 years of age. He served under General Patton in the 1st, 3rd and 7th armies and spent nine months at the front lines. “When I was there everyone was drafted,” he said. “I didn’t know anyone that enlisted on purpose unless they were older and had been in the service for awhile.” Lengel’s first stop was Liverpool, England. “We were on the boat three days and never even saw the dock because it was that foggy. We were only 10 feet from the dock,” he said. He spent a few months in Plymouth, England – 90 percent of which was destroyed from bombing – before going into combat in France. “When we went into France is when it got bad. Going from England to France our boat got hit with a mine. It killed 23 men on the boat, then we went on into the beach and took everyone off the boat and they sunk it,” Lengel said. Coming onto Normandy Beach there were no docks. The men would exit the boats directly onto trucks that had been waterproofed. Lengel arrived at Normandy after the beach had already been cleared, so his outfit was being assaulted by snipers only. “We went into the beach at night and we slept in these gliders that were shot down for the first four days. Then we started up on the breakthrough,” Lengel said. The breakthrough was 3 miles wide and 150 miles long, with Germans firing on each side. “That’s when I shot down the plane. I was the third truck in the convoy and I shot the plane down,” he said. After Lengel and his group made it through the breakthrough, their tanks ran out of gas. The men were unable to turn the guns to shoot at the Germans and 33 tanks were taken, each holding five men. Lengel was part of headquarters, which meant that he drove a truck to deliver rations and supplies to their outfit, which consisted of 800 men. “You would haul a load of gas to the front lines then haul a load of prisoners back,” Lengel said. He went on to explain that there were 20 prisoners in each load. For the first six months in France, the men were required to drive without lights on their vehicles at night in order to keep them hidden from the German planes overhead. “An airplane can be five miles up and see you light a match, a lot were killed that way,” Lengel explained. Driving the truck offered many experiences for him: on Christmas of 1944, he drove 300 miles and saw 56 vehicle accidents due to the weather, his assistant driver was shot by a sniper and he hit a mine that blew the floor out of his vehicle. Another duty of Lengel’s was to return displaced persons to their country of origin. “The Germans had brought them down to work and then after we took the towns we had to take these people back to their countries,” he explained. He went on to tell a story of an accident that he witnessed in which a truck with 40 displaced persons went off the edge of a mountain, killing all of the passengers. Lengel was in the town where the Battle of the Bulge occurred, two hours before the battle took place. “I was in there with a jeep to look for supplies and they started dropping German paratroopers,” he said. The 1st Airborne, approximately 25,000 men, was in the town for the battle.

WALTER LENGEL identifies areas which is outfit occupied during World War II. Lengel was drafted in 1943 and spent two years and three days overseas in various countries, primarily France. He was part of headquarters, which means that he drove a truck to deliver supplies and rations to the outfit. (photo by Brent Swan) Lengel’s memory is full of hundreds of anecdotes of different things he experienced during his tour of duty overseas, which lasted two years and three days. He saw countless men injured, transported tons of supplies and people and disarmed bombs. Lengel was told he would be stationed in Japan and was provided specs for the Japanese bombs and mines to study. However, before it was time for him to leave, the war ended and he was discharged. “In 1945, we came back on the SS Westpoint. We were the only boat that was allowed to come back because of the weather,” he said. “I came in at the beach in Virginia, then we went into a big building and they told us we were discharged and gave us a few dollars for a bus fare.” Lengel rode back to Wabash with a friend who was

also discharged. He arrived home at midnight. Now 87 years old, Lengel says he would like to return to France to see what it now looks like. “I’d like to go back to Plymouth, England, and all of them and see how it looks because there wasn’t much of it there when we were there,” Lengel explained. As is the case with many veterans, Lengel cherishes his memories of the service, but says he would not want to experience it again. “You would never make it again. Every time you were on the front lines your chances got worse of whether you would make it back or not,” Lengel said. In closing, Lengel stated that he doubts there are 100 men still living from his outfit.

Commissioners discuss new snow ordinance by Danielle Smith Bob Brown, EMA director, and Steve Downs, county attorney, presented a new snow ordinance to the Wabash County Commissioners at their Nov. 29 meeting. This ordinance would help Wabash County conform to the system that the State uses. In the current snow ordinance, Wabash County may only determine one level of snow emergency, the new ordinance would provide for four levels of emergency: - A Level 1 (Red) “Emergency” Travel Advisory would be declared when roads have become impassable and the County Highway Department is unable to keep the roadways cleared due to severe snowfall and high winds producing high drifts and blizzard like conditions. Travel may be restricted to emergency personnel only and essential emergency travel by members of the public. If this level is declared, all motor vehicle travel on county highways is prohibited. - A Level 2 (Orange) “Warning” Travel Advisory would be declared when conditions are threatening to the public’s safety. Only essential travel is recommended. Emergency action plans have been or should be implemented by businesses, schools, government agencies and other organizations. If this level is declared, motorists may travel on

county highways at their own risk. - A Level 3 (Yellow) “Watch” Travel Advisory would be declared when routine travel or activities should be restricted in areas of the county because of a hazardous situation; citizens should use caution to avoid these areas. Schools and businesses should begin to implement their emergency action plans. If this level is declared, motorists should be aware that travel could be restricted on county highways and caution should be used. - A Level 4 (White) “Caution” Travel Advisory would be activated when conditions may develop that limit or hinder travel or activities in isolated areas. No travel restrictions have been imposed, but citizens should be alert to changing road and weather conditions. Vehicles exempt from the effects of declaring a travel advisory are emergency response vehicles, public utility vehicles, towing vehicles, vehicles being operated to care for livestock and any snowmobiles or other off-road vehicles that are declared to be “emergency vehicles” by the coordinator or Sheriff of Wabash County. Residents may monitor the status of travel alerts at Indiana Department of Homeland Security’s website,, by clicking on Travel Advisory Map.

3 2011 Indiana State Fair to be “Year of Soybeans”

December 1, 2010

Agricultural outlook breakfast to be held Dec. 8 The Wabash County Extension Service and POET Biorefining will present a program titled “Agricultural Outlook Breakfast and PARP Program” at the Wabash County REMC Building on Dec. 8 starting with breakfast at 7:15 a.m., the program will begin at 8 a.m. The program is free to the public and is designed to help farmers, land owners, input suppliers, and those interested in agriculture make better business decisions in the coming year. The “2011 Agricultural Outlook Program” will be presented by Chris Hurt, an agricultural economist from the Purdue campus. Bryan Christjansen, POET Biorefining, will present “Update on Ethanol Production”. The program will also include “Choosing the Right Seed Traits to maximize Pest Control and Yield” by Bob Neilsen, extension specialist, A g r o n o m y Department Purdue University. Next on the program will be “Explaining the Fertilizer Applicator Certification Rule” by Curt Campbell, extension educator ANR, Wabash County. Last on the program will be “Weed Control Update” by Bill Johnson, extension specialist, Botany and Plant Pathology,

Purdue University. Those wishing to receive PARP credit towards re-certification need to be present for the complete program and will also need to pay the fee for credit. U.S. farmers had disappointing corn yields in 2010 and demand remains strong for grains, soybeans, and food around the world. Will there be enough to feed and fuel the world in 2011? The Agricultural Outlook for 2011 will help answer this and other important questions. The Russian drought last summer set the upward grain price pattern in motion. Their reduced production is breathing new life into U.S. exports, which could reach record highs. Much higher wheat prices encouraged U.S. farmers to plant wheat this fall after the lowest Indiana wheat acres on record in 2009. More wheat acres this fall will compete with corn and soybean acres next spring. Thus, the bidding war for 2011 acres is already underway. The volume of corn used for ethanol will set new records in 2011, but the rate of ethanol expansion is slowing sharply. Will there be enough corn acres to meet those demands next year? China excited the corn market last

spring by purchasing U.S. corn for the first time in 15 years. Some believe this could be the beginning of growing Chinese purchases in coming years. Crop prices are up, but so are input costs for 2011. This program will outline which inputs are headed higher and examine the crops that will provide the expected strongest returns next year. The livestock sector recovered somewhat this year after two financially devastating years in 2008 and 2009. Most species have reduced herds and flocks and may now be able to pay $5.00 a bushel for corn and still cover all costs. How will the much higher feed prices impact livestock and dairy production decisions in 2011? Will feed prices move higher than costs? Land values and rents should be headed higher in 2011, but how much and how high can land values and rents rise before they are too high? What are the driving factors to be watching? These and other topics will be covered. The breakfast is being sponsored by POET Biorefining and if you plan to eat breakfast please RSVP to POET at 1866-612-2532 or Wabash CES at 260563-0661 ext. 246.

Indiana Soybean Alliance sponsorship is part of plan to educate public on production agriculture Did you have your soybeans today? Maybe you did and you don’t even know it. High-quality, highprotein soybean meal is the main food source for Indianagrown beef, dairy, chicken, pork and fish, which makes soybeans a part of most people’s daily diets. Soybeans provide sustainable, farm-grown quality food not only for Hoosiers, but for many others around the country and the world as nearly half of all Indiana soybean meal is exported to other markets. These are just some of the facts visitors to the 2011 Indiana State Fair will learn as the fair celebrates the “Year of Soybeans” presented by Indiana Soybean Farmers. “Indiana soybean farmers are looking forward to connecting with Hoosier consumers at the 2011 Indiana State Fair,” said Indiana Soybean Alliance President Lynn Teel, a farmer from Chalmers. “It’s a great opportunity to start a conversation not only about the many uses of soybeans, but also how Hoosier farmers and their families are caring for our land, our animals and our economy.” According to the most recent statistics, Indiana ranks third in the United States in soybean processing and fourth in production. Hoosier farmers produce 244 million bushels of soybeans annually contributing $2.5 billion to the state’s economy. While most Indiana soybean farmers process their crops

It is used to cook or fry foods, and is also in margarine, salad dressings, mayonnaises, soy milk and tofu. Many baked breads, crackers, cakes, cookies and pies also contain soybean oil, not to mention its nonfood uses in fuel for diesel engines, soy crayons, soyInk and other products. “We’ve been powering the tractor shuttles at the fair for years with soy biodiesel and touting its clean-burning energy,” said Indiana State Fair Executive Director Cindy Hoye. “Now, we’ll be able to tell a more complete story about why soybeans are so important to

North Manchester Historical Society to host an evening of Christmas music

On Dec. 13, the community is invited to an evening of Christmas music as a way for the North Manchester Historical Society to thank the community for their interest and support. A dinner will be served at 6 p.m. in the Timbercrest Assembly Room. Contact Carl for reservations at 260-982-2216 or Evelyn at 260-9826777. Call by noon on Dec. 10. The program begins at 6:40 p.m. and is free to the public. Everyone is welcome. In 1974, three volunteer women, Becky Waas, Hazel Keller and Eunice Brightbill, were working as a committee to establish activities for the residents of Timbercrest. They determined a need for an outlet of singing together in three or four part harmony. Many of the residents had participated in community or church choirs prior to their move to Timbercrest, and they felt some people would enjoy this activity. Becky Waas served as the first director. The people sang for their own enjoyment but were also available for programs and worship opportunities that happened at Timbercrest. When the position of director of activities was established, the choir continued. Marlin Brightbill took over the director’s position. He served in this capacity until his final illness. Mary Coe filled in for Marlin when he was hospitalized and was asked to continue after his death. She is the current director. The choir has a varied repertoire of sacred and secular music. They have, in past years, participated in combined choir experiences with several other Senior Living Centers. The choir members are all current members of the Timbercrest family. Wanda Miller serves as their accompanist. The average age of its members is somewhere within the senior citizen range. The biggest joy is the making of music together for the enrichment of the family living at Timbercrest and other friends.

Miami County awarded Economic Development Administration Grant The Miami County E c o n o m i c D e v e l o p m e n t Authority (MCEDA) recently received big news from the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic D e v e l o p m e n t Administration (EDA). The EDA announced the approval of a $2.5 million grant as the last piece in a financing package to bring 200

new jobs in aircraft maintenance to the Grissom Aeroplex and the region. The grant, combined with other local, state and a U.S. Department of Agriculture Loan, will fund renovations and expansion of Hangar 200 at Grissom Aeroplex to close a deal with an aircraft maintenance company looking to expand operations

into Miami County, at the former Grissom AFB. The Hangar at Grissom, which is owned by the County, requires an expansion to accommodate larger wide body aircraft to include the B747-400, B767, B777 aircraft for the company. The aircraft maintenance company, currently operating in the Southwestern United States, has been in business for 43 years. The company has provided service for most major airlines in the United States, including United, US Airways, Sky West, American Eagle and Air Canada. The company is seeking to expand its existing operations to Grissom Aeroplex, where they project 200 new jobs will be created, at an estimated five-year regional economic impact of over $160 million. The project is pending final lease negotiations. Upon hearing the news, Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN-05) issued the following statement: “In August, I reached out to the Federal Economic D e v e l o p m e n t Administration to urge them to give every due consideration to the Miami County Economic D e v e l o p m e n t Authority’s application because I understood the importance of this contract for the future of the Grissom Aeroplex. Winning this grant was absolutely critical for the completion of this deal and I am

very pleased that I could help put the final piece of the puzzle in place. Now Hoosiers hit so hard by the downturn in the economy, have a new opportunity for some good paying jobs.” Don Cates, Chairman of the Miami County E c o n o m i c D e v e l o p m e n t Authority, remarked, “This is fantastic news. In addition to C o n g re s s m a n Burton’s efforts, the community received non-partisan support and assistance from Senator Lugar, Senator Bayh, C o n g re s s m a n Donnelly, and C o n g re s s m a n Ellsworth and their staff ’s with this project – thank you. A special thanks to Phil Lehmkuler, State Director of USDA; Robert Sawyer, Director EDA Chicago Regional Office; and Governor Daniels for their leadership and vision in support of this project as well. It is refreshing when all of us, local, state and Federal officials and agencies work together to improve local, regional and State economies and create jobs. An aviation project, such as this, has been the vision for the redevelopment of Grissom for a long time by local and regional entities. This project is an excellent example of how our local and region al economy of North Central Indiana can become more diversified and stable.“

Annually, LaFontaine Elementary hosts these Family Fun Nights to promote student/parent interaction, as well as to increase awareness of school-wide educational goals, particularly in math, reading, and writing. Money raised from the Book Fair will be used to purchase new books for the library.

Farmers likely to spend more to produce 2011 crops

Grain prices moved higher this year and the costs of growing them are likely to do the same in the year ahead, according to Purdue University estimates. The 2011 Purdue Crop Cost & Return Guide projects that farmers could see double-digit increases in variable costs, which include fertilizer, seed, pesticides, fuel, machinery and other expenses not related to labor or land rental. The guide is available by going online to sion/pubs/index.asp and clicking on “2011 Purdue Crop Guide.” While prices for corn, soybeans and wheat are up from this past spring, farmers will need those higher returns to offset a spike in variable crop production costs, said Bruce Erickson, Purdue’s director of cropping systems management and a crop guide contributor. “For rotational corn, which is most of the corn in Indiana, our estimates show variable costs in 2011 up around 13 percent compared with 2010,” Erickson said. “Soybean production costs will be up around 6 percent, and for winter wheat

we’re estimating that costs will be 13 percent higher. If you grow continuous corn, you can expect to spend about 14 percent more next year.” Much of the projected cost increases are tied to a recent surge in fertilizer prices. An April U.S. Department of Agriculture survey of Illinois retail fertilizer prices – a benchmark for Indiana – reported average perton costs of ammonia at $520, diammonium phosphate at $503 and potash at $501. This month those prices are $736, $661 and $526, respectively. After years of incremental movement in fertilizer prices, the market has been much more volatile since 2007, Erickson said. “Crop production around the world, and the demand associated with that, still seems to be the primary driver,” he said. “And fertilizer is more and more a world market now. Producing fertilizers is an energy-intensive business, so producers often source outside the U.S., where energy costs can be a fraction of what they are here.” There’s not a lot most farmers can do to soften the blow of higher production

costs, Erickson said. They can shop around to find the best deal for fertilizer and other crop inputs and buy in bulk and store if they think prices are heading up, he said. Erickson reiterated that the crop guide contains cost estimates, and that a lot could happen in the market between now and when the 2011 crop is planted. “We offer these estimates to provide a relative benchmark to help farmers, landowners and those working with them some perspective on the economics of producing a crop,” Erickson said. “The situation for an individual farm can be much different than this depending on how and when crops

$,* -!+ !&

were sold, how purchases were made, etcetera. “While costs are back up, most crop producers are managing to stay ahead of the curve. This is in contrast to the situation with livestock producers, though, where an increase in their feed prices further pinches returns. I’m old enough that I remember those long stretches of lean years on the farm, so we’ll take this for now and ready ourselves for whatever the future holds.” The Purdue Crop Cost & Return Guide is prepared annually by Purdue’s departments of Agricultural E c o n o m i c s , Agronomy, and Botany and Plant Pathology.

North Manchester resident Music shares concerns about property taxes remembers earlier times Dear editor, A song by Alan Jackson called “Remember When” keeps playing in my head and I’m trying not to cry. I remember when I heard our pets were being poisoned by dog food from China and our babies’ plastic bottles and toys contained lead paint. I thought, “The U.S. won’t put up with that!” Then we did. I remember when clothes didn’t need an extra button in a bag, and we didn’t put up with poor quality. It’s no longer an oddity for something brand new to fail or break. I remember when Americans were able to be as self-sufficient as they wanted to be. Then there’s a homeowner in Georgia who was fined $5,000 for planting too many vegetables, selling and giving some away, as he had always done. I remember when jobs were everywhere and our homes were our most valuable asset. We could call or write our Congress and they seemed to listen. Schools taught us how to think, not what to think. Kids could excel without being restrained until everyone else caught up so others wouldn’t feel bad. I remember when our elderly were revered because they have wisdom from years of hardship and heartache. They taught, we listened and are better off for it. Children were loved and cared for, and only smacked down for real offenses like disrespecting parents. (Not condoning violence against children). I remember when the President worked tirelessly on behalf of America instead of being on a perpetual vacation, campaigning and telling the rest of the world that no country should be more prosperous than any other. What does that tell you? Redistribution is a one-way ticket to the rest of the world. It’s not meant for us. I’ve never noticed the world’s poor being better off with billions of our tax dollars because it rarely reaches them. But I’ve noticed world leaders living in palaces while the “little” people around them starve to death. Obama says America can absorb a terrorist attack. Instead of telling the world we will make sand of our attackers, he bows and says we can take it! Where can we “absorb” an attack? Washington D.C.? That would be my guess. Who’s expendable? New York? Vegas? Wabash? No we can’t, it’s unacceptable. Anyone else wonder how unemployment stays at 9.6 percent, and inflation remains “low”? The numbers are being fixed. Obama says the recession is over and we are on the right track. Translation? They’ve put “stupid” in the water and expect us to drink it. Some say that we deserve to lose everything for having slaves, and pushing Indians onto reservations. I wasn’t there. If I was I’d be in that forgotten group of people that believed no human being should be owned or displaced. I’m not now, never have been and not until Jesus comes back will I be perfect. Only then by His grace do I expect to “squeak” by. I pray Psalm 109:8 for our President: “Let his days be few, and let another take his office.” May God bless us all. Pat Hammons North Manchester

Dear editor, I appreciate the opportunity for public input on the User Fee Special Assessment before the Solid Waste Board of Directors have to make difficult decisions affecting our community. I have several issues to be considered. In the most recent election on the ballot was the referendum for the property tax caps for Indiana. The voters voted and the referendum passed by a large margin. I believe this proved that local property owners need some type of stability and at this time cannot afford higher taxes. If the user fee was passed, I believe this would open the door for other private businesses, schools and other governmental branches to use property taxes as a way to pay and manage their budgets. Unemployment benefits will be ending for a lot of local residents on Nov. 30. Total benefits of 99 weeks were given. On Nov. 12, the food bank sponsored another of the ongoing food for families in need. The event was held at the same location as always at the Dallas Winchester Senior Center, Bond Street. At this time, families in need started lining up several hours before the event. Vehicles were in a continuous line from the entrance of the park on Hill Street to the east all the way to Cass Street. This is over one mile of vehicles with families in need of food and services from

our community. This event lasted several hours with continuous lines. I have been fortunate with employment with the City of Wabash for 27 years, and also have been a property investor and manager. I have never seen so many vacant properties and properties in such disrepair. We have vacant properties in all neighborhoods. We have local realtors and local property managers closing and going out of business. In my opinion, the local business owners cannot afford another tax. Most property managers that are left in business will have to pass this expense on to the tenants. Considering all the foreclosures and tenants that have lost their

homes, let’s not add another tax to the already struggling

homeowner. Gregory D. Music Wabash

Marcia Benjamin, 56 Retired Professor Emeritus at Manchester College Nov. 27, 1953 – Nov. 24, 2010

Dr. Marcia L. Benjamin, 56, North Manchester, passed away quietly Nov. 24, 1:20 p.m., at her home. She was born Nov. 27, 1953, in Wabash, to Edwin and Harriet Benjamin; she was one of the oldest surviving cystic fibrosis patients in the United States. Her determination and passion for living eclipsed many of the effects of the disease. After graduating from Wabash High School in 1972, she attended Manchester College obtaining her B.S. in Psychology and graduating with high distinction. A Master’s Degree in communication followed from Ohio University, and in 1993 she earned a Ph.D. in communication from Purdue

University. During pursuit of her Doctorate degree, she worked at the Bowen Center in Warsaw, where she was a Consultation and Education Specialist, and later, Director of Volunteer Services. She arrived at Manchester College in 1987 as an Assistant Professor of Communication Studies and in three years attained the title of fulltenured Professor of Communication Studies. She retired in 2010 as Professor Emeritus. Her commitment to her students earned many accolades, but her greatest satisfaction came from watching her students’ achievements following graduation. Throughout her teaching career, she was the recipient of many grants and achievement awards. Three times she was named to the “Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers.” Dr. Benjamin’s community service included six years on the board for Youth Service Bureau of Big Brothers, Big Sisters Wabash and Grant counties; as well as serving on the editorial board of Network, a quarterly publication for adult cystic fibrosis patients. Anyone who knew Dr. Benjamin remembers her kind heart, caring spirit, insightful communications and carefree laughter. She loved gourmet cooking and spent hours in her kitchen perfecting culinary masterpieces, as well as delicious comfort foods that she liked to call “Aunt Fannie meals” – named after her favorite great-aunt. Dinner parties with friends were cherished events and she kept menus of each one so a returning guest would never be served the same food. Spring often found her supervising the planting of hundreds of flower bulbs around her home where she treasured the company and personalities of her many cats. Her drive, determination and high spirits in the face of failing physical health will continue to be an inspiration to all who knew her and loved her. In addition to her parents, she is survived by her life partner, Shea Finnegan, North Mancehster; an older brother, Chris (Janice) Benjamin, Waterford, Mich.; four nephews, Scott (Kim) Benjamin, Roswell, Ga.; Mike (Molly) Benjamin and Rob Benjamin, both of Waterford, Mich.; and Hunter Finnegan, North Manchester; a niece, Brooke Jimenez, Anchorage, Ala.; and a great-niece, Maggie Benjamin, Roswell, Ga. A brother, Mark, preceded her in death. She leaves behind many aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and colleagues who will cherish their memories of her forever. Funeral services were held Nov. 29, at the Church of the Brethren, North Manchester. Cremation followed. Arrangements were handled by Grandstaff-Hentgen Bender Chapel, North Manchester.

Meals on Wheels seeks Photographers offer photos for less fortunate families volunteer drivers In 2009, Help-Portrait began as an idea that Christmas is a special season when volunteers are urgently needed. This certainly holds true for the Meals on Wheels program in Wabash. Over the last three months, several of their volunteer drivers have resigned for various reasons: illness; job changes; moving out of town and one wonderful driver who, after 20 years of service, just felt he needed a break. This past year, the volume of people that Meals on Wheels serves has increased over 40 percent and has left them in need of new fulltime drivers. If you are a person who would be willing to help Meals on Wheels serve the elderly; those who are ill; and those who, due to advanced age, are no longer able to prepare their own meals, you are urgently needed. Driving for Meals takes 30 minutes to an hour, one day per week, and is limited to a specific area of Wabash. If you are willing to help, please call Jan Givens, 260-563-7075, or Ed Cochley, 260-5631659.

transformed into a movement in just three months. The idea behind Help-Portrait is simple: 1. Find someone in need. 2. Take their portrait. 3. Print their portrait. 4. Deliver their portrait. Help-Portrait is a collection of photographers around the world using their time, equipment, and expertise to give back to those who are less fortunate. What does that look like? It looks like photographers taking pictures and then giving those pictures back to the families. A group of local photographers has joined together to bring Help-Portrait to the Wabash community. Wabash Help-Portrait will be held at Curves, 1339 N. Cass St., on Dec. 4 from noon to 4 p.m. These portraits can be of individuals, couples or families. Interested participants should arrive dressed for their portrait. Local volunteers will provide makeup and hair stylists if desired. A barber has also volunteered to offer haircuts for men. More information can be found on the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page Wabash Help Portrait.

#25 Manchester falls to North Central College 84-73

JORDAN MOSS (4) shields the ball from two defenders as he looks for an outlet during Manchester College’s 84-73 loss to North Central College on Nov. 28. Moss led the Spartans with 18 points, while also recording five rebounds and two assists. (photo by Shaun Tilghman) by Shaun Tilghman The Manchester College men’s basketball team lost for the first time this season as they fell to the visiting North Central Cardinals 8473 on Nov. 28. The Spartans started the season 2-0 after picking up a 79-

60 home win over #28 Wheaton College on Nov. 16 and a 78-63 victory against Kalamazoo on Nov. 23, but a slow start in their third contest proved too much to overcome. The two teams traded scores for the first few possessions before North Central

went on an 8-1 run to take a nine-point lead at the 16:00 mark. Over the next two minutes Manchester was able to pull within two as a result of two steals by senior Tyler Delauder and seven points from senior Nathan Ferch. The Cardinals con-

tinued to make the best of their opportunities, at one point increasing their lead to 14, but the Spartans got the margin back down to nine going into the break trailing 38-29. Manchester got on a roll to start the second half and a threepointer by senior

Mitch Schaefer knotted things up 41-41 with 14:28 left to play. North Central then took a small lead and gradually added to it before going up 69-59 at the 4:33 mark. The Spartans chipped away at the double-digit deficit several times but down the stretch they were forced to and the foul Cardinals capitalized – scoring their final 11 points on free throws in the last two minutes. Junior Jordan Moss was 6-of-10 from the floor and hit 6-of-9 free throws to lead Manchester with 18 points. Ferch recorded 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting to go with four rebounds, three assists and a steal. Schaefer had 11 points and four rebounds, while junior Jason Spindler added 10 points, five rebounds and four blocked shots. The loss drops Manchester to 2-1 on the year as they prepare to open conference play at Earlham College on Dec. 1.

Southwood places third in Elkhart Central Turkey Duals On Nov. 27, the Southwood Wrestling Knights began their season with an impressive 4-1 record as they traveled to Elkhart Central to compete in the Turkey Super Duals. The Knights placed third in their pool with their loss coming at the hands of host Elkhart Central 25-45 before defeating John Glenn 4239 for third place. Southwood began the morning with a convincing 69-9 win over Triton after having a bye in the first round. Pins by

Justin Louck (125), Josh Brainard (140), Will Adams (145), Kyle Dickey (152), and Logan Schneider (171), sandwiched between several forfeits began the morning session in a positive fashion. In the third round, Southwood went ahead of Elkhart Central 25-3 as they started at 125 pounds. Wins by Louck (125), Nick Striker (135), Brainard (140), Adams, (145), Dickey (152), and John Yarnelle (160) were not enough as the Knights lost five of their

next six matches by pin before forfeiting their final 119-pound class for the 25-45 score. Southwood recovered from their first loss of the season to handle Bremen 59-24. The Knights won their first eight weight classes for a 47-0 lead. Starting at 130 pounds, Trevor Rebholz and Striker (135) each pinned their opponent in the first period. A technical fall by Brainard (140) was followed by pins from Adams (145), Dickey (152), Yarnelle (160),

Schneider (171), and Coltyn Spicer (189). Pins by Trenton Jones (112) and Louck (125) rounded out the winners for Southwood. In round four, Southwood and Concord was decided by pins. Starting at 135 pounds, Striker took a forfeit from an injured Concord wrestler. Pins from Brainard (140), Yarnelle (16), Schneider (171), Spicer (189), Derek Reed (215), Louck (125) and Rebholz (130) proved too much as Southwood won 48-36 to put the Knights

in place to compete for third. In the final match of the day, Southwood and John Glenn would battle to the end. Starting at 140 pounds, Brainard pinned his opponent before Dickey (152) took a forfeit at 152. Schneider (171) won his fourth match of the day by pin after Yarnelle (160) lost his only match of the day. Freshman Jake Smith (285) found a good time to win the first varsity match of his career as he pinned his opponent in 1:40.

Going into the final two matches of the day, Southwood found itself down 30-39 as senior captain Rebholz (130) took the mat. He pinned his opponent in the third period to put Southwood within reach of third place, 36-39. Striker (135) pinned his opponent in 2:30 to secure the win 4239, and third place. The Knights had two individual champions on the day with 5-0 records: Striker (135) with two pins and Brainard (140) with four pins and a technical fall.

Louck (125), Rebholz (130), Schneider (171) all placed second in their respective weight classes with 4-1 records. Dickey (152) and Yarnelle (160) also finished with 4-1 records. Other Knight finishes: (103) Colton Dawes 1-4; (112) Jones 2-3 with one pin; (145) Adams 32 with two pins; (189) Spicer 3-2 with three pins; (215) Reed 2-3 with one pin; (285) Smith 1-4 with one pin; and Brandon Simpson (112) was 1-0 on the day.

Lions Club members and their families are invited to help wrap gifts for Operation Elf on Dec. 8 at 6:30 p.m. After the business meeting District Governor Paul Russell installed two new members into the Urbana Club – Jerry Long and Ed Howard – and then made a few comments about Lions Club projects in District 25-G and projects shared by all Lions in Indiana. project is One Operation KidSight, a statewide vision screening program that works to identify treatable or preventable causes of blindness in preschool children (ages 1-5). Operation

KidSight is a project of Lions’ Clubs throughout Indiana and The Indiana Lions Eye & Tissue Transplant Bank (in partnership with the Indiana Lions Foundation and the Indiana University Department of Ophthalmology). A child’s eyes are fully developed by age 6 and any screening and testing problems found after age 6 may be discovered too late to be corrected as a medical condition. DG Paul Russell read a thank you he had received from a mother whose daughter’s vision was saved by the screening that was done by his local Lions Club in Lakeville. The screening showed the child was extremely farsighted. When a followup test was done it was discovered the child had an optic nerve that was enlarged. A procedure was done to correct the problem before any permanent vision

damage incurred. Mr. Russell said there are 10,000 children in Lions District 25-G that will start kindergarten next year and most of these will have no vision tests done before they enter school. Roughly 500 of these children will have a condition that will result in impaired vision. KidSight screening can help prevent the tragedy of lost vision for these children. A Second Challenge made to all Lions Clubs is to help Childhood Literacy by providing dictionaries to all third grade students who need them. Mr. Russell paraphrased Helen Keller’s quote: “We (Lions) can’t solve all problems, but we can’t refuse to do something because we can’t do everything.” State Lions Projects highlighted were the Indiana Lions Cancer Control Fund in conjunction with Indiana University’s School of Medicine, the Indiana Lions Eye and Tissue Bank, Leader Dogs for the Blind, Indiana Speech and Hearing, and the Indiana Lions Foundation that gives grant money back to local clubs for special projects. (The Urbana Club has received two of these grants.) DG Paul Russell concluded his remarks by quoting the International Lions President’s theme that every Lions Club can be a “Beacon of Hope” to meet a need in their community – with community meaning not only their local needs, but needs in our state, country, and the world. The meeting concluded with refreshments being served in honor of Lions Steve and Sharon Gilbert’s 50th anniversary and DG Paul Russell and his wife, Rose. It was announced that the Urbana Lions Christmas Dinner would be Dec. 13, 6:30 p.m., at the Akron Country Kitchen. Reservations are due Dec. 6 to Bonita Snell (260-774-3665). LADIES NITE OUT CLUB: Jean Fleck assisted Helen Dawes when the Ladies Nite Out Cub met in Helen’s home for their November meeting. Jean gave devotions by reading “Beyond Our Asking” and then had each member tell in one word what they were especially thankful for. Jean closed devotions by reading the words to “Thanks Be to God” a song she sang when she was in (continued on page 27)

Urbana News continued from page 26 the Urbana High School choir. Helen Dawes read the ‘thought of the month’, “He who will not forgive others, destroys the bridge over which he himself must pass.” She then led in the Pledge to the flag and the Creed. Homemakers’ Secretary Anna Lee Biehl and Treasurer Peg Heflin gave their reports. Song Leader Esther Terrel read the story behind the Homemaker’s Prayer that was written by Thomas Sample, the father of the 1928-1929 State Home Economics President Mrs. Calvin Perdue. Mrs. Perdue appealed to her father for assistance with the prayer during the depression years when farmers and their wives were struggling so bravely. It was with this thought that Mr. Sample composed the prayer. It was adopted as the official Homemaker’s Club Prayer at their annual meeting in 1936. Club members sang the prayer to the tune of “He Leadeth Me” after hearing the story of the song. “Happy Birthday” was sung to Erma Dawson and Esther Terrel. “Happy Anniversary” was sung to Carolyn Everest. Roll call was answered by having members tell what they remembered about Wabash County that made them really proud. Cards were signed for Priscilla Payne and Orma Gaston. Anna Lee Biehl led in singing the military songs for the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. The Ladies Nite Out Club books remind members that the Armistice to end World War I was signed on the eleventh hour and the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918. Esther Terrel won the Social Hour quiz. Anne Driscoll was Lucky Lady. The Club’s Christmas party will be held at Pam’s Café on Dec. 15 at 12:30 p.m. Secret Sister names will be revealed and names for 2011 will be drawn. RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE at the Urbana Community Building is set for Dec. 9 from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. Anyone donating blood or platelets from Dec. 6-31 will be entered into a weekly region-wide drawing for a $250 Visa gift card. The Red Cross reminds people that

“Tis the season and everyone is searching for gift ideas that don’t break the bank. Despite the half-offer early bird sales, many people struggle to find the perfect gift. So what if, for just one day, you forget the sales and choose to help save a life instead? By donating blood or platelets through the American Red Cross, you can help save lives. And the cost is just an hour or two of your time. If just 10 percent of Americans would give blood this holiday season, 34.2 million lives might be saved. That’s a deal everyone can appreciate!” Please make and keep your appointment to give the perfect gift of blood or platelets. It is one that can help give hospital patients in need the most precious gift of all – life. Melissa Wilcox is the contact person for the Blood Drive. You can contact her or visit or join the blood donation conversation at edcrossblood.

LaFontaine News continued from page 27 tell something about themselves. There were also four door prizes given away. Those who won were: Mary Ruth Mendenhall, Jan Hulliner, Connie Cook and Marilyn Fischer. Our Christmas meeting will be held at The Wabash Gardens with Marilyn Fischer as hostess. We will also bring a $5 gift to exchange. Those present at the November meeting were: Connie Cook, Kathy Eviston, Marilyn Fischer, Marguerite Guenin, Dolly Hoch, Jan Hullinger, Mary Ruth Mendenhall, Margaret Schoby, Lois Templeton, Barbara Weidner and Janice Zellers. (Submitted by Dolly Hoch.) WATCHING FOR WINTER FINCHES AND OTHER SURPRISES: If there’s any way possible to hang a bird feeder and fill it, you should. It’s one of life’s simple joys, bird watching. Granted, the

winter plumage isn’t as bright and festive as the breeding plumage we see during the spring and summer months, but there is joy in watching birds. A surprise to the feeders always makes our efforts worthwhile. Last year, there weren’t many reports of pine siskins throughout the state. This year, we’re getting reports of visiting winter finches. Just this past week, I had over 30 siskins at the feeders. Of course, the next day there were none to be found. They were replaced with a “charm” of goldfinch – over 50 of them scattered like windblown seed under the feeders. I was recently asked by a co-worker what my favorite bird was. When I was a kid, it was the goldfinch. I remember being around eight years old, riding my bike down the fence-lined country road. Wildflowers covered the fences, butter-

flies flit from blossom to blossom in the summer sun. The goldfinch would be perched upon the fence. As I approached them, they’d move a little further down the fence, dipping in flight. Their bright yellow bodies, black wings and tops of heads, and cheery song drew me into their world. It was several years afterward that I learned the males lost that bright breeding plumage and resembled females in the winter months. I learned only after calling a photographer to the house, and paying them, to get photos so someone could identify the strange birds I had at my feeders. To this day, I’m still “charmed” by these bright bursts of sunshine. While I never tire of seeing goldfinches, those occasional and rare birds sure do make things a little more exciting. A lot of people put out a wide

variety of foods to draw in this bird or that. I used to, but found a universal seed that most all birds will eat is black oil sunflower. I also put out black niger (AKA thistle) seed for those winter finches and suet cakes for the woodpeckers. That’s about as fancy as it gets around this backyard bird diner, but the birds don’t seem to complain. Keep an eye on those feeders. I have a feeling it’s gonna be a good birdwatching year. ~ Lynnanne HAVE NEWS you’d like to share?
