City prepares to demolish unsafe Downtown building Mayor determines Hipskind building to be an emergency situation. by Danielle Swan DSmith

At the Jan. 26 emergency meeting of the Board of Public Works and Safety, the mayor declared the Hipskind building, located at the corner of South Wabash and Canal streets, to be an emergency situation. Kevin Hipskind was the owner of the building until 2010, when it was purchased in a tax sale by Wabash Marketplace, the group dedicated to revitalizing Wabash’s downtown district. Upon purchase of the building, Wabash Marketplace hired an engineer to perform a study on the building to determine its state and the processes that would be required to rehabilitate it. The results of that study were delivered to Wabash City Mayor R o b e r t Vanlandingham on

the morning of Jan. 23. “After looking very briefly, it was determined that the building is not in very good shape, to say the l e a s t , ” Vanlandingham said. Another meeting was held that afternoon, and the mayor learned more about the deteriorated state of the building. “The building has deteriorated so much in the last two years that this engineer did not feel comfortable in rehabilitating the building,” he said. The engineers informed the mayor that they felt certain that 10 inches of snow would collapse the building. “It’s not out of the realm of possibility in the state of Indiana that you could have a 10-inch snow and you might not know you’re going to have a 10-inch snow until the very last minute,” said City Attorney Doug Lehman. M a y o r Va n l a n d i n g h a m

AFTER STANDING FOR MORE THAN 100 YEARS at the corner of Canal and South Wabash streets, the Hipskind building will be demolished. The building is so unstable, the mayor deemed it an emergency situation. The City of Wabash is working quickly to alleviate the danger by hiring engineers to shore up the building in preparation for demolition.

Wabash County United Fund Board of Directors announces new executive director Deborah VanMeter is the new executive director of the Wabash County United Fund, announced Jan Roland, Wabash County United Fund board president. The Wabash County United Fund’s mission is to provide necessary financial and human resources to support qualified organizations in their efforts to enhance the quality of life for any and all of the residents of Wabash County. The United Fund focuses on three main objectives for selecting programs to receive funding; Income/financial stability, Health/healthy living, and Education. In her new role, VanMeter will be responsible for coordinating the annual fundraising campaign as well as working to ensure that the United Fund accom-

plishes its mission. Roland said in announcing the appointment, “Christine Flohr was a great executive director for us. She set the bar high. Deborah VanMeter will be able to continue at that level and raise that to an even higher level of community involvement and community awareness for the United Fund.” She continued, “Deborah has a passion for helping people. The United Fund is a perfect match for her passion and our programs. We are pleased she agreed to take our position.” Roland added that the hiring of VanMeter followed an extensive search that included interviewing nine candidates to determine the best fit for the organization. VanMeter is a graduate of

Huntington University with a degree in business administration. She has also completed leadership training through the Huntington University Center for Leadership and graduated from the Huntington County Leadership Academy. VanMeter previously worked as an admissions consultant for the Huntington University Excel Program for Adults. When asked about her new position, VanMeter responded, “I am excited to have the opportunity to be a part of the United Fund and the programs that improve the quality of life for people in my community.” VanMeter began at the Wabash County United Fund on Jan. 23.

nel, to avoid entering the building. He later asked the superintendent of Wabash City Schools to divert bus routes from the corner. At the Jan. 26 meeting, Greg Metz, Board of Public Works and Safety, fully explained the cause of the rapid deterioration of the structure. “There was a pretty significant renovation in the 60’s or 70’s,” he explained. “They did a couple of things to the exterior walls as far as changing of windows and it was not done properly and it weakened the structure of the building itself. “Not only that, but they actually changed the direction of the roof, which changed the walls that end up bearing the weight of the roof. So the bottom line is: that roof, which is now a flat roof, which originally was not, is carrying

weight in a way that it was never intended to when it was built. So while some people might think that building has stood for a hundred and some years, it sounds like we’re pretty lucky that it didn’t fall down a couple years ago.” The engineer informed the board that in his 20 years of experience, he’s only found five buildings that he considered so dangerous and not worth the effort of rehabilitation. Although Wabash Marketplace purchased the building in a tax sale, they have not yet claimed the deed, so Hipskind is still the record owner of the property. Marketplace had, however, applied for a grant for the rehabilitation of the building, but will not know if they will receive that grant until the beginning of April. The board feels that it is a

risk to leave the building standing for another two months. “It’s possible it could go another couple of years without falling down, the only thing is if it goes and there’s traffic on that street, you’re putting lives at risk and I don’t think this board wants to do that,” Lehman said. “It is better, here, to err on the side of caution and take immediate action.” Before being demolished, the building will have to be secured, or shored up, which is estimated to cost between $3,500 and $10,000. “The shoring up is necessary in order to be able to demolish it with the least amount of adverse consequences to the surrounding properties,” Lehman explained. “It’s not a situation where you can just go in with a wrecking (continued on page 15)

Legislation to clarify Indiana’s Self-Defense Law approved by Senate lawmakers Senate lawmakers approved legislation co-authored by Sen. Jim Banks (RColumbia City) reaffirming Hoosiers’ right to resist the unlawful entry by law enforcement officers into their homes. Senate Bill 1 passed the Senate by a 45-5 vote and moves to the House for further action. “A man or woman’s home is their castle,” Banks said. “This legislation should give people comfort knowing that it helps protect private property against unlawful intrusion.” SB 1, authored by Sen. Mike Young (RIndianapolis), permits a homeowner to use reasonable force in resisting a police officer’s unlawful entry into a dwelling if that homeowner does not have actual knowledge that the person is, in fact, an officer or if the officer is not engaged in official duty. The legislation notes that, even

then, violent force should not be used to prevent the unlawful entry unless there is no other adequate alternative. This legislation does not allow homeowners to resist if a police officer enters in cases of: - Invitation from at least one resident, unless one or more other adult residents object - Hot pursuit - Pursuit of a criminal committing or escaping after the commission of a crime - Possession of a warrant Banks said SB 1 is an effort to address

Hoosier concerns generated from the Indiana Supreme Court case known as Barnes v. State, in which a man questioned about a domes-

tic violence call scuffled with a police officer who tried to enter his house without a warrant and against his will.

JA benefits from state Walmart Foundation Local youth will learn how to be more financially knowledgeable due to a grant the Walmart Foundation presented to Junior Achievement (JA) of Northern Indiana. The grant will support JA offices throughout the state as they deliver financial literacy programs specifically targeted at middle and high school students. Across Indiana, JA will serve more than 133,443 youth through an investment exceeding $5 million and more than 8,900 JA volunteers will mentor these students. Locally, Junior

Achievement serving Wabash County will receive $729.57 from the state grant of $40,000. Provided in a safe school environment, JA helps prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to: - generate wealth and effectively manage it - prepare and live within a personal family budget - avoid a credit crisis - and save for the future. Board president Danielle Miller said JA programs empower students to make a connection between what they learn in school and “how it applies in the real world. This enhances the relevance of their

classroom learning and increases their understanding of the value of staying in school.” The $40,000 grant, which benefits the entire state, was the result of an appeal from JA of Northern Indiana on behalf of the JA operations throughout the Indiana to the Walmart State Giving program. “There’s an old saying - Think globally but act locally. That’s Walmart’s philosophy in helping the communities in which we do business and our associates live,” said John Wolf, Walmart market manager for the Fort Wayne area. “A few years ago, the Walmart Foundation recognized it must find out what local

communities need to thrive and improve the lives of their friends and neighbors.” To do that, he said, the Foundation created the State Giving Program. The State Giving Program asks not-for-profit organizations in communities as Fort Wayne to submit requests, which are then reviewed by local area Walmart associates. In Indiana, Walmart operates 125 facilities employing 37,649 associates. In 2010, Walmart stores, Sam’s Club locations and the Walmart Foundation gave more than $25.6 million in cash and inkind donations to local organizations in the communities they serve Indiana.

Through additional funds donated by customers, and Walmart and Sam’s Club associates throughout the state, the retailer’s contributions in Indiana totaled more than $28.2 million. Walmart collected on behalf of the state of Indiana more than $336.3 million in sales taxes in FYE 2011. Walmart paid more than $66.4 million in state and local taxes in the state of Indiana in FYE 2011. In FYE 2011, Walmart spent $1,759,470,960.00 for merchandise and services with 1,209 suppliers in the state of Indiana. As a result of Walmart’s relationship with these suppliers, Walmart supports 73,271 supplier jobs in the state of Indiana.

Timbercrest Senior Living will host the Festival of Ice, an icecarving event, on Feb. 11, 9 a.m. until noon. The event will be held on the Timbercrest front lawn. Two ice carvers will be onsite to turn ordinary blocks of ice into

works of art. One of the carvers, Stan Horne, has competed in international ice carving competitions, including the BP World Ice Art Championships in Fair Banks, Alaska. He also started the Fire and Ice Festival,

which draws thousands to Columbia City each year. The two carvers will complete a total of six sculptures over a three-hour period, so there will be lots of activity throughout the entire morning. Attendees can bundle

Businesses that have sponsored blocks of ice include Beacon Credit Union, Manchester College, McKee Mortuary, Midwest Poultry, POET and Timbercrest. These businesses each covered the cost of a block of ice and to pay the carver for their time. New Market of The #1 Male Revue Show is Coming!

A powerful and inspiring speaker, James has become an internationally recognized leader against slavery. He is the recipient of numerous awards, and has appeared on CNN. Last year, North Manchester’s Sarah Morbitzer moved to Ghana to volunteer at the Challenging Heights School. In 2011, Challenging Heights’ School saw over 500 students enrolled, and continues to support over 1,300 children and their parents through the myriad other programs it offers. The organization has supported nearly 10,000 atrisk children to-date in educational settings and rescued more than 200 children from slavery. The efforts of Challenging Heights have not only resulted in the reduction of child trafficking in the region, but also dramatically increased the enrollment and retention rates of local schools, through multilateral partnerships.

Winter farmers markets expand

Agriculture Deputy Secretary Kathleen Merrigan recently announced that the number of winter farmers markets is increasing. According to the updated National Farmers Market Directory, since 2010, the number of winter markets has increased 38 percent, from 886 to 1,225. These winter markets also account for nearly 17 percent of the nation’s 7,222 operating farmers markets (Note: The reported number of farmers markets has been updated since August 2011). “Consumers are looking for more ways to buy locally grown food throughout the year,” said Merrigan. “Through winter markets, American farmers are able to meet this need and bring in additional income to support their families and businesses.” Farmers markets operating at least once between November and March are considered winter farmers markets. The top 10 states for these markets are: New York, California, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Ohio, Maryland, Florida, Massachusetts, Virginia and Michigan, The expanded adoption of hoop house technolo-

gy, which has enabled many smaller growers to extend their production seasons at low cost, has been a contributing factor to the growth of winter farmers markets. Hoop houses have allowed growers to produce locally grown products for longer time periods and in Extra ni Peppero

colder climates. USDA provides support to farmers markets through numerous programs, including AMS Specialty Crop Block Grants Program and Farmers Market Promotion Program. The agency also sponsors its own indoor farmers market durms Mushroo

ing the winter months at USDA’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. The market features local products such as fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, eggs, honey, herbs, handmade soaps, baked goods and more.

70 percent of Indiana voters support law making workplaces, restaurants and bars smoke-free

Pending legislation, backed by Gov. Daniels, would protect the right to breathe clean air inside all workplaces. A new poll released finds that Hoosiers overwhelmingly support a law prohibiting smoking inside all workplaces. By a strong majority (70 percent to 27 percent), Indiana voters support a law that would prohibit smoking in indoor workplaces and public places, including restaurants and bars. This support comes from a broad-based coalition of voters across the state, including 73 percent of Republicans, 66 percent of Democrats and 73 percent of Independents. “Voters know that secondhand smoke is a health hazard, and this poll shows that they want a strong

law protecting their right to breathe clean air,� said Danielle Patterson, co-chair of the Indiana Campaign for Smokefree Air. “The Legislature should listen to the people of Indiana and Governor Daniels and act quickly to make all workplaces smoke-free.� The survey of 500 registered voters was released by the Indiana Campaign for Smoke-free Air, a coalition of health groups including the American Heart A s s o c i a t i o n , American Lung Association and Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. The survey also found among Indiana voters: - 85 percent believe that secondhand smoke is a health hazard, including 58 percent who say it is a serious health hazard

- 71 percent believe the right of employees and customers to breathe clean air in restaurants and bars is more important than the right of smokers to smoke and businesses owners to allow smoking - 84 percent feel all workers should be protected from exposure to secondhand smoke in the workplace Hoosiers recognize the benefits of a smoke-free environment, saying that restaurants and bars would be healthier and more enjoyable if they were smoke-free. Nearly nine out of 10 voters (88 percent) believe that these places would be healthier, and 84 percent want to be able to enjoy Indiana’s restaurants and bars without smelling like smoke at the end of the evening.

“Secondhand smoke is harmful to everyone, and everyone should be protected from it,� said Kevin O’Flaherty, cochair of the Indiana Campaign for Smokefree Air. “It is a matter of fairness - everyone should have the right to breathe clean air at work. The Legislature should reject exemptions that would force some workers to continue putting their health at risk in order to earn a paycheck.� The Indiana House is expected to take up the smoke-free legislation (HB 1149) this week. Gov. Daniels has called on the Legislature to pass the strongest possible law with the fewest possible exemptions. The need for protection from secondhand smoke in all workplaces and public places has never been clearer. Secondhand

Family and friends create the Sarah Kaye Haupert Memorial Dance Scholarship in the Community Foundation of Wabash County

The Community Foundation of Wabash County is privileged to announce the creation of the Sarah Kaye Haupert Memorial Dance S c h o l a r s h i p Endowment. Sarah Kaye Haupert was a 2009 graduate of Northfield High School. Sarah, with her father in August 2011 was tragically killed in an automobile accident. The endowment has been established with memorial gifts from family and friends and will provide scholarships to keep alive Sarah’s passion for life and interest in dance. The scholarships will help individuals like Sarah, who demonstrate kindness, happiness, and a positive and independent “can do� mental attitude pursue a four-year degree. “I am grateful for the support from friends and family,� said Sarah’s mother, Marty Haupert.

“People have been generous and I am pleased that these gifts can be used to help others attend college.� According to Marty, Sarah was passionate about dance, having studied at the Playhouse Dance Studio since she was three years old. She was interested in many things. Sarah’s in-school activities were extensive and included Student Council, 4-H, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, cadet teaching, FFA, volleyball, track and the Norsettes Dance Team. Sarah also served as a youth leader at Faith Quest, Brethren Way of Christ. Passionate about youth and children, Sarah was in her junior year at Ball State University, pursuing a degree in elementary education at the time of the accident. The Haupert family and friends are currently in the process of planning a Murder

Mystery Dinner scheduled for April 15. Net proceeds will benefit the Sarah Kaye Haupert Memorial Dance Scholarship. Gifts in

smoke contains thousands of chemicals, many of which are toxic (such as formaldehyde, arsenic and lead), and is a proven cause of cancer, heart disease and respiratory illnesses. Twenty-nine states currently have strong smoke-free laws that include restaurants and bars. The statewide survey of 500 likely 2012 general election voters in Indiana was conducted by Public Opinion Strategies. The survey was conducted Jan. 21-23, and has an overall margin of error of +/- 4.38 percentage points.

Slee shares concerns for Roann residents Dear editor, I can think of many things I’d rather do than pay attention to anything of a political nature. However, since I love my freedom of choice, I pay attention to politics as I am able and try to address issues. If America doesn’t, the freedom of choice will be gone. Thanks to Sheila Rhoades for attending the last Roann Town Board Meeting, which I invited her to, as a concerned citizen. Her article was well done and timely, drawing attention to an issue which is

much larger than the just the local issue which was addressed. I will note, that the only correction I’d make, is that I am addressing the local issue more for others than myself, because I live in a trailer, with outside access to the crawl space. My privacy rights won’t be affected either way by this issue. But the issue does need to be examined in a future context, as well as the present. Roann’s water works operator wants to enter everyone’s home in order to search for the source

of excess sewage water, the problem being perpetuated by a few, not everyone. That lacks probable cause and is a direct violation of the 4th, 5th, 7th, 8th and 14th Amendments, some in part. The 4th Amendment castration is still in court, but there’s no way that a state court can make null and void a federal statute, unless we the people allow them to. The operator claims that it is the most economically feasible way to solve the problem of the average, daily sewage flow of 25,000 gallons per day spiking at 100,000 to 120,000 gallons per day during rain storms. It isn’t feasible to think that the bulk of the problem is coming from homes’ sump pumps being connected to sewer lines. There are 208 residences in Roann, including 1215 businesses. A former town clerk presented a figure of 50, on the high side, homes having a storm water drainage problem. That means that each of those 50

homes is pumping (on the average) 2,000 gallons per day into the sewer lines. Myself and others don’t think so. The problem needs to be resolved, and nobody would disagree. But not at the expense or infringing upon of the innocent. That is not how this country is founded. Not to mention the fact that other potential sources of the problem have not been thoroughly explored, some not at all.

The excuse of “we’re doing this for the public good” has always been a line given by socialists and communists. And it is a lie. It is a lie that even good people have been duped into believing. By replacing a solid foundation with other reasoning, it crumbles the whole structure. If the Roann Town Board wanted what is good for the people, then why did they try to keep the old fertilizer plant matter a

City prepares to demolish... Hammons shares political concerns continued from front page secured, or shored up, which is estimated to cost between $3,500 and $10,000. “The shoring up is necessary in order to be able to demolish it with the least amount of adverse consequences to the surrounding properties,” Lehman explained. “It’s not a situation where you can just go in with a wrecking ball and knock it down. It has to be shored up to do it properly and for the safety of the people doing the demolition.” The board reviewed the costs of rehabilitation versus demolition with the engineers. It was ultimately determined that rehabilitation would cost approximately $750,000, while total cost of demolition, including shoring up, was estimated around $100,000. The engineer

was of the opinion that the money to rehabilitate the building could be put to better use on other downtown structures. In order to demolish the building as expeditiously as possible, the Mayor declared it to be an emergency situation, which gives the City the ability to compare only two bids for the work. “The fact that we’ve got a major highway going along one side of the building and one of the major Downtown streets going along the other side of the building, and the fact that we have other businesses that can be impacted by this building collapsing, those reasons justify the city declaring this as an emergency,” Lehman said. At the Feb. 1 meeting of the board, the mayor expects to have

names of two engineering companies who could potentially perform the necessary work to shore up and demolish the building. “I’m all for historic preservation, I’m all for rehabilitating a building, but also the two words that I look at a lot of times and I really have to look at in this case are: “common sense,” Vanlandingham said. “Wabash Marketplace has done a tremendous job on historical preservation. We’ve got great facades; we’ve got some nicelooking buildings. Our Downtown is looking really good, but this is one I think we have to let go,” Va n l a n d i n g h a m and Lehman said it is too soon to speculate as to what will fill the vacant lot after the building is removed.

Dear editor, There’s a new book out by Andy Andrews called “How Do You Kill 11 Million People?”. Can you guess how that’s possible? The answer is the same for every question pertaining to destruction of anything, life, faith, marriage, our country, our economy, etc.: you lie to them. Take the president, hope and change, fundamental transformation. We wanted it to be better! How much better off, how much more hope do you have now!? Can you afford to fill your gas tank, buy groceries or get a good job? It only takes a second to glance into the eyes of those around us to see fear and desperation. The middle class is being destroyed despite the lies that anyone making over $200,000 will not see an increase in their taxes. We are being taxed and charged so much it’s impossible to keep up with it!

While trying to decide whether to buy medicine or groceries, have heat or a house, we are being destroyed by the deception of a man who dreams of being a supreme global dictator. Don’t be deceived if you’re on his side and vote him back in as you will only be useless tools to be disposed of like the rest of the country once he has power for four more years! Dick Lugar is Obama’s right hand man, yet he pretends to be for the people of Indiana and against Obama. The “news” is deceptive. The Occupy Movement is extremely deceptive, yet it is written up as being “good for our health”! I’m overwhelmed by the cloud of deception choking us to death! Especially when the intent of my letters has been to inform and encourage, only to hear that the President “means well” and the occupy

article was good. If I turned in a similar paper to an uniformed professor about “Why the Tea Party is Good for Our Health” I would surely get an el flunko! It’s tolerance gone mad! What makes sense about the chaos, lawlessness, hate of the rich, Jews and capitalism? While there is no tolerance for the Tea Party and everything good they stand for!? There’s tolerance for the one voice that says “I’m an atheist, don’t want to pray or read about God and I’m not comfortable around those who do!” But intolerance

for those who believe in God and prayer. I’ve always hated being lied to because anyone lying to or about me takes me for a fool. A government saying it can take better care of us than we can limiting our choices “for our good”, and those who yell “Tolerance!” at me while being intolerant of me is lying that I will not tolerate! I invite you to be “intolerant” as well. Thank you for the story on the Phats who are a perfect example of hard work and success being the American way! Pat Hammons North Manchester

Small business cheers Manchester College School of Pharmacy to House action on Right-to-Work improve health care in Northeast Indiana Interim Dean Dave McFadden, executive vice president for Manchester College. “Not only will practice sites foster student learning through hands-on training, the community benefits greatly. The surge in organizational capacity and brain power that area pharmacies and health care institutions receive will improve treatment and patient outcomes across the region.” Student pharma-

The Manchester College School of Pharmacy will leave a much greater imprint on Northeast Indiana than the state-of-the art facility that is taking shape at I-69 and Dupont road. Ultimately, the pharmacy school will help people. “We are well on our way to reaching our goal of approximately 200 practice sites for our students to work in across Allen County and northeast Indiana,” said

cists will be issued intern licenses enabling them to support fully licensed pharmacists and practice under their supervision. That teamwork expands the range of services pharmacists can provide to Northeast Indiana patients, and increases the number of patients reached. That’s important, because pharmacists are doing more than ever before. According to the 2011 U.S. Surgeon General’s Report, over the past 40 years, pharmacists have become more involved in managing medication and disease, preventing disease, and promoting health. Gone are the days when pharmacists just dispensed pills. Today, pharmacists team with physicians, therapists and others to coordinate health care. These teams, according to the Surgeon General, represent one of the most “evidence-based, proven and time-tested strategies” for improving health outcomes. And there’s more good news. Research shows that pharmacists tend to stay and practice where they went to school. That means that many School of Pharmacy graduates are likely to alleviate the region’s shortage of pharmacists and, ultimately, improve health care in Northeast Indiana.

The State’s leading advocate for small business owners cheered loudly for the House’s decision on Jan. 25 to pass Rightto-Work legislation. “Among all of the issues on which we survey our members, they feel most strongly in favor of Right-toWork,” said NFIB State Director Barbara Quandt. “We’ve never had a response like the one we got back this year on that issue. More than 90 percent of our members believe that the bill adopted by the

Senate today will dramatically improve the state’s business climate.” She praised House leaders for supporting the bill, and she said members of the minority caucus deserve credit as well for returning to work, debating the issue and letting the measure proceed. “We know this was a tough vote for everyone, and we’re very pleased that today both sides did the right thing,” she said. According to the NFIB 2012 Ballot,

which gauges member support on key legislation, 90.47 percent of the state’s small business owners want Indiana to adopt the Right-toWork reform now being debated in Indianapolis. “Small business owners know better than all the experts and academics because they are the ones who have to sign the checks and tough it out in a difficult economy,” she said. “The state’s employers are sending a message and they need to

hear now in the House.” Under the bill, employees would no longer be forced to join unions and have their dues automatically deducted from their paychecks. “This is a matter of fairness for all workers and their small employers,” said Quandt. “A system that forces workers to join unions against their will, and which forces businesses to perform payroll administration for the unions, isn’t really fair.”

Dr. Ronald J. Pestritto to address C3 C3 attendees will have the pleasure of hearing Dr. Ronald J. Pestritto, graduate dean and associate professor of politics, Hillsdale College, explain progressives and the progressive movement at the Feb. 6 meeting to be held at the Bachelor Creek Church of Christ at 7 p.m. Dr. Pestritto teaches political philosophy, American political thought, and American politics. He holds the Charles and Lucia Shipley Chair in the American Constitution. He serves as a senior fellow of the College’s Kirby Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship as well as

a senior fellow of the Claremnt Institute for the Study of Statesmanship and Political Philosophy and is an academic fellow of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. Dr. Pestritto has published seven books, including Woodrow Wilson and the Roots of Modern Liberalism and A m e r i c a n Progressivism. Among his other books are an edited collection of Wilson’s speeches and writings, Woodrow Wilson: The Essential Political Writings; a three-book series on American political thought; and Founding the

Criminal Law: Punishment and Political Thought in the Origins of America. He has also served as a visiting scholar at the Social Philosophy and Policy Center at Bowling Green State University. In addition to his academic work, Dr. Pestritto has written widely in the public press on progressivism and the administrative state, including articles in the Wall Street Journal and the Claremont Review of Books. Currently in production, he has scholarly articles on Lincoln and the Progressive Movement, on the progressivism of

Social Gospel, on the democratic theory of Woodrow Wilson and Theodore Roosevelt, and on progressivism and property rights. His future research interests include finishing a book on the progressive origins of the modern administrative state. Dr. Pestritto earned his Ph.D. from the Claremont Graduate University in 1996. Pro g ressivism, though frequently veiled, is the heart of the current debate on the future direction of this country. Understanding this movement will assist voters as they cast their votes this year.

Norse win overtime thriller over Huntington Cromer reaches 1000 points as Lady Apaches tame Wildcats

by Gary Andrews It was a big for the Wabash girls basketball team Jan. 28. With a win they still had a chance at a share of the TRC title with a little help from Manchester and Kelsey Cromer was chasing 1000 career points, needing 30 to reach the milestone on senior night. Both things came to reality as the Lady Squires knocked off Tippecanoe Valley and Cromer drained a three midway through the third quarter to reach the milestone, scoring 36 for the game. With Manchester beating Valley, Rochester defeating Northfield and Wabash topping Whitko it created a 4way tie for a share of the TRC between Wabash, Manchester, Tippecanoe Valley and Rochester with 5-2 records. The Apaches sent a message right off the bat, jumping out to a 15-7 first quarter lead and extending that lead in the second quarter, leading 31-16 at the half. Wabash has had some third quarter lapses in recent games, but that didn’t happen Saturday as they come out forcing the tempo, when Cromer drained one of her six three pointers on the night to reach 1000. The Apaches would go on to out score Whitko 21-14 in the quarter and led comfortably 52-30 with a quarter to go. Being up 22 points with 8 minutes to go, the energy level relaxed a little as Whitko would win the quarter 14-12 for

the 64-44 final. Leading Wabash was Kelsey Cromer with 36 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assist and 2 steals. Cromer was 6 of 8 from behind the arch. Katelyn Vogel had 10 points, 4 rebounds and 1 steal. Kyleigh Hampton had 5 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals and 2

blocks. Marin Hill had 5 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal. Claire Cromer had 3 points, 1 rebound, 2 assists and 1 steal. Kalie Obenour had 3 points, 4 rebounds and 1 steal. Charlie Pardo had 2 points, 2 rebounds and 1 assist. Sarah Puckett had 1 rebound.

by Gary Andrews The Nortfhield boys basketball team jumped up a couple classes to host 4A Huntington North Jan. 30 in what turned out to be a thrilling 5957 overtime win for the Norse. The country boys started out quick with Ryan Givens and Dustin Echard buckets, followed by a Ryan Keaffaber three to give the Norse a 7-0 lead. After a Huntington bucket Echard would hit again and Chad Glasscock backed him up with a bucket and it was 10-3. Huntington, with sharp shooter Kalvin Miller can put points on the board in a hurry and that’s what happened. The Vikings would go on an 11-3 run to end the quarter and led 14-13 after one. The Norse came out in the second hitting on all cylinders, starting the quarter on an 11-0 run. Echard hit two free throws, followed by a Collin Dawes and Ryan Keaffaber bucket to lead 20-14. On the next possession, Keaffaber was fouled on a missed three point shot, hitting two of the free throws to make it 22-14. Echard would end the run with a bucket and the Norse were in control 24-14; or so they

thought. Down 10 the Vikings would score 8 straight before Keaffaber drained a three with .40 seconds remaining to lead 2722. Huntington would hit the final bucket of the quarter and the Norse led 27-24 at the half. Chad Glasscock would start the third with a three and the two teams traded buckets the next two p o s s e s s i o n s . Huntington hit two free throws with 3:11 to go, making it 35-30 Norse. After a Viking time out they would hit two straight to cut the lead to 35-34 when Collin Dawes hit. The Vikings scored the last bucket of the quarter and Northfield led 37-36 after three. The two teams would trade blows the first half of the fourth quarter with Huntington hitting a three with 3:24 to go to take a 46-45 lead. Two Glasscock free throws with 1:53 remaining made it 48-47 Huntington. Ryan Keaffaber connected on his second three of the quarter with 1:02 to go, giving the Norse the lead back at 50-48. After a Huntington travel, they called time out with 37.3 left. The Vikings fouled at the 29.7 mark and Collin Dawes sank one of two free throws to go up 51-48.

NORTHFIELD’S Ryan Givens tries to control the opening tip during the contest held Jan. 28 at Northfield High School. Northfield went on to win the game, 59-57, over the visiting Vikings. (photo by Gary Andrews) Huntington played for the last shot, with Miller draining a three and it was overtime tied at 51. Northfield would tale the lead on two Ryan Givens free throws and the Dustin Echard hit to give the Norse a 55-51 lead. Back come the Vikings, scoring the next 6 points and taking a 57-55 lead. Givens connected again, then Cody Gibson took a charge

with 9.2 left to give the Norse the last shot. Northfield called two time outs to set up the play. Ryan Keaffaber drove the right side, putting up a runner that hit nothing but net with 1.5 seconds left. The Vikings called time out to set up an out of bounds play that was picked off by Ryan Givens at half court and the Norse had pulled off the 59-57 overtime thriller.

Norse to raise money for Lighthouse Mission/Riley Children’s Hospital The annual Charity Faculty vs. Intramural All-Star Game will take place next Feb. 3 from 2:153:15 p.m. in Kaltenmark Gym. This event has been going on for nearly 20 years. Students “donate” $2 to get in

Cottage Creations Selected as North Manchester Business of the Year by Shaun Tilghman m From the many worthy candidates in North Manchester, Cottage Creations, located at 231 E. Main St., was chosen as the 2011 Business of the Year during the 68th Annual Chamber of Commerce Dinner on Thursday, Jan. 26, at the Manchester College Student Union. Pizza Hut Manager Tim McNall, who was last year’s recipient of the award, said he was proud to present this year’s award to a business that has been a part of downtown North Manchester for over 25 years. “It is a business that we as a community frequent for many occasions,” McNall continued. “We all

have counted on them to help us celebrate birthdays, weddings, graduations and virtually every holiday or any other event we share with our loved ones. They help us grieve and show appreciation and thanks for those we need in our lives. According to McNall, the founder and current owner, MaryAnn Swihart, opened the business in its original location in 1983. Since that time, it has moved to its current location just two doors down from the original location - to provide the extra space needed as the business continued to grow. “The interest for this business began when MaryAnn helped her husband Larry’s mother cater

weddings and prepare floral arrangements,” he added. “The idea was always in the back of her mind and she was approached to purchase a shop when their sons, Andy and Matthew, were ages 6 and 1 - the decision was to wait for another time. A few years later, MaryAnn took an opportunity to join a friend in a gift shop, which became a gift and floral shop. “Cottage Creations has been a wonderful example of great people in the right place. While Cottage Creations has always designed their own fresh and permanent flower arrangements, they have also decorated the interior of the shop. It has changed over the years from Country to Victorian, to more

Traditional, to Contemporary with twists of Trendy. “My first impression of North Manchester, as a warm and thriving community, happened when I visited the town as a young teenager,” Swihart stated. “I came with a friend and her mother, as her mother had a doctor appointment. Later, I became smitten with the town while on a date and driving through town in the evening - the lights of the shops and the beauty of the streetscape made me think, ‘What a cool town this is.’ But my love for North Manchester really took hold in 1983, when I joined Vickie McKinney in her gift/consignment shop.

Viv Simmons named Citizen of the Year by Eric Christiansen A surprised and humbled Viv A. Simmons was nothing but appreciative at the North Manchester Chamber of Commerce 68th Annual Dinner after being named the Citizen of the Year. “I was told I was supposed to be here to represent the GarberSimmons Senior Center,” Simmons told the crowd as he received his award. “This is indeed, really indeed, an honor I shall never forget.” Simmons was presented the award by 2011 Citizen of the Year Anne Myers. “Writer and poet Maya Angelou said this: ‘People will never forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel’,” Myers said. “People who have had the privilege of knowing our citizen of the year will never forget his kindness and how he made them feel in his presence. Born in 1925, Simmons was one of six children. Before graduating from high school in 1943, Simmons was an excellent student and athlete. His basketball team made it to the state tournament, and he later played on a semi-pro baseball team. Simmons joined the Navy after high school and was assigned to the USS Salamua where he was a radar operator.

2011 CITIZEN OF THE YEAR VIV A. SIMMONS (center) is surrounded by his family members: (from left) Sally Vaccaro, Joe Simmons, Sue Simmons, Rose Mary Martin, Elizabeth Vaccaro, Ben Vacarro and Bob Vaccaro. After the war, Simmons married his high school sweetheart and returned to college to earn degrees from Indiana and Ball State University. Simmons taught history, the became principal at Manchester High School from 1959-1964. In 1965, he became superintendent of M a n c h e s t e r Community Schools. He left North Manchester in 1971, but returned in the early 1990s when his wife’s health began to fail. “In 1996, they moved to Timbercrest, which is where I learned to know them,” Myers said. “My lasting impression of him will always be the faithful, kind and loving way he cared for his wife, who died in 2000. He was a devoted husband, and togeth-

er they modeled what a marriage relationship can be.” Simmons has remained active in the North Manchester community, helping to found the GarberSimmons Senior Center in 2001, in which he has served on the board of directors since its inception, and continues to be involved in the programs and services offered. He is also a member of the local Rotary Club, the North Manchester Historical Society, and has been a participant in the G r a n d p a r e n t Program with the Manchester College women’s basketball team. He is a member of the North Manchester United Methodist Church and has served on the Administrative Board and chaired the Education and

Finance Committees. He was also the secretary of the Resident Council at Timbercrest for six years, and takes his turn leading the Saturday morning Bible Study there. Surrounded by his children, Joe Simmons and Sally Vaccaro, along with other family members in attendance, the honor of the evening didn’t go unnoticed by Simmons. “The last three times I’ve been here, I saw Karen Fawcett receive this award,” he said. “I saw Bonnie Dee and Karl Merritt receive it, and Anne Myers last year. I’m glad I wasn’t representing the Senior Center this year. This has to be one of my favorite experiences, and it is indeed an honor I shall never forget. God bless you and I love you very much.”

MARYANN SWIHART (center), owner of Cottage Creations, and employee Dee Shumaker (right) are presented the 2011 Commerce Award by North Manchester Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Tim McLaughlin. Swihart also said it was an honor to be a part of the community, and thanked the many individuals involved in making it possible for her to accept the award. “Thank you for honoring Cottage Creations,” she continued. “We would like to thank our local customers, as well as those in surrounding communities - from Fort Wayne, Warsaw, Huntington, Wabash, R o c h e s t e r , Indianapolis, and beyond - who have all contributed to our success. Without their loyalty, we would not still be in business. “Thank you to former employees, for their roles in helping build a quality reputation associated with Cottage Creations. Thank you to my current employees: Lori Nevil, Chris Kopke, and Dee Shumaker; all three bring so many good qualities to the store because of their different styles and skills. And a special thanks to my family, for their help and support through the years.”

Farmers have been given more time to terminate their cover crops after the excessively wet spring of last year prevented many of them from doing that in time to meet a crop insurance deadline. In order for grain farmers to insure their main crop, they previously had to terminate cover crops by May 15 and before the crop headed or budded. In December, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Risk Management Agency changed those rules so that producers now must terminate cover crops by June 5 and regardless of the growth stage. “Last year, with a very wet spring, the

May 15 deadline was really problematic,” said Eileen Kladivko, Purdue University professor of agronomy. “There was a lot of effort on the parts of land-grant universities, the Natural R e s o u r c e s Conservation Service and partners like the National Wildlife Federation to get that changed because of the conservation benefits of cover crops. The new rule gives us an extra three weeks, and it doesn’t matter the stage of the cover crop. “This is a great improvement because now farmers can manage cover crops as is best agronomically.” According to RMA,

the changes affect corn, popcorn, sweet corn, hybrid seed corn, pumpkins, soybeans, grain sorghum and processing beans. The agency defines cover crops as crops planted within 12 months of planting an insurable crop. The cover crop must be recognized as a sound agronomic conservation practice for the area. The change recognizes the importance of crop insurance in protecting a producer’s livelihood and conservation in protecting the soil, said Brian Frieden, director of the Springfield Regional Office of RMA. Even with the changes and

increased flexibility, Kladivko said farmers need to visit with crop insurance agents about the way cover crops may affect a specific crop insurance policy. Producers also can get more information about cover crops on the RMA website at http://www.rma.usda .gov/ by clicking the “Infor mation Browser” link. The site provides farmers with access to specific information by allowing them to enter crops and counties where farms are located and to look at special provisions.

Justin Wall offers alternative legal option to Wabash area residents

by Brent Swan After practicing law for over three years, Huntington resident Justin Wall recently decided to expand his practice to better serve the Wabash County area. “I decided to open up a Wabash office, at 67 S. Wabash St.,” Wall stated. “Another attorney from Huntington, John Sees, is in the other suite so there are representatives from two firms within this

building.” Wall began his services at 309 N. J e f f e r s o n , Huntington, by specializing in a variety of areas including criminal law, bankruptcy, collections, family law, divorce and custodial issues. “I have worked with essentially any type of case you might find in a small town practice,” Wall explained. “I’m also licensed as a patent attorney, which is a federal

licensing so I do some of the trademark and copyright work as well.” In coming to Wabash, Wall hopes to show Wabash County residents that he brings a different approach to his practice. “One of the primary reasons I got into this practice was that I wanted to help people,” Wall said. “A lot of times, people seem to be frustrated with attorneys due to a perceived lack of communication. It might seem to take a long time to get emails back, or to get answers, and I feel that I’m very prompt. My goal is to get any call returned within four hours, and a written reply within a day or two.” In addition to the

chemotherapy treatments since her initial diagnosis of inflammatory breast cancer in December of 2010. According to WebMd, inflammatory breast cancer, undetectable by mammogram or ultrasound, makes up only 2 to 5 percent of all breast cancers in the United States, and is one of the most aggressive forms of cancer. After the first three treatments of chemotherapy, Susie’s family had reason to be optimistic as early signs pointed at a potential remission or recovery as the chemotherapy appeared to be working. In November, the cancer returned and quickly spread to areas that make the long-term prognosis difficult.

“No matter what they say, we try to keep a positive attitude,” Susie’s sister, Toni Adams said. “I had been working non-stop to get her into treatment at some of the specialized clinics in Texas, but when the cancer returned, it came back so quick admitting her wasn’t an option.” According to her family, within the past month Susie’s condition has quickly worsened to the point the hospital has advised the family to research the feasibility of hospice care. “When you hear the hospital start to talk about hospice care, you get a terrible feeling,” the family explained. “As it is, we all know what’s going on, but you still have to pray for a miracle. You can’t ever give up

When a potential client calls the Huntington office, they can decide if they would like to meet at the Wabash or Huntington office,” Wall said. “Normal business hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., but I find myself working nights and weekends as well.” Wall went on to say the addition of a Wabash location has been pleasant overall and expressed his appreciation to those that have helped along the way.

Even today, she’s not worried about herself as much as she is her kids and grandkids. Just the other day, she was mad at me for pushing so hard for these treatments, she (continued on page 28)

As it now stands, the family is hoping to aid with future expenses. The family stated that Susie has appreciated the support she has received from the community so far, and has appreciated each and every card she has read. The family has established an account through Beacon Credit Union for those who choose to make a donation on Susie’s behalf. Donations may be dropped off at either location, but donors should note Susie McVoy Braun Cancer Fund on any donation. Her children are Tim McVoy, Michigan; and Gayle McVoy and Ryan Baldwin, Wabash. Her parents are Bill and Kay Hyden. “Even though the odds aren’t in our favor anymore, we’ll still pray for one more miracle,” her family said. “She’s been an inspiration to our family throughout this illness.”

ROANN LIBRARY NEWS: Thank you to the kind soul who plowed off the sidewalks at the library during our last big snowfall. It was much appreciated! New titles include: In the Presence of My Enemies, by Gracia Burnham; In My Hands - Memories of a Holocaust Rescuer, by Irene Gut Opdyke; Savage Run, by C.J. Box; Healing Back Pain Naturally, by Art Brownstein, M.D.; Missing Girls, by Lois Metzger; Blood and Honor, by W.E.B. Griffin; The Rising Tide, by Jeff Shaara; and Lake in the Clouds, by Sara Donati. New titles in the Children’s Department include: Cherry Pies and Lullabies, Swine Lake, Wynken, Blynken and Nod, The Stars Will Still Shine, A House for Hermit Crab, and When Mama Comes Home Tonight. The Library Board of Trustees meetings are now being held on the first Tuesday of the month, at 6 p.m. METRO NORTH NEWS: “I have 100 stickers on my hat - 10 on each strip, and 10 strips on my hat. That makes 100!” explained first-grade student, Bryce Mitchell. Many classes at Metro North celebrated the 100th day of school for MSD on Jan. 18. Children wore “100 glasses”, they made Tshirts to celebrate the special day with smiley faces outlined with 100 dots, there were 100 footprints going down the hallway, there were collections of 100 items displayed, and snacks consisted of 10 pieces of 10 different kinds of cereal. Even the morning announcements consisted of facts about the number 100, presented by

the third-graders. Did you know that by the age of 66, most people will have shed 100 pounds of skin? In the average person’s life, they will drink enough milk to fill 100 bathtubs? The longest car ever made is a limousine 100 feet long containing a swimming pool and a kingsized water bed? The most points ever scored in an NBA game were 100 by Wilt Chamberlain in 1962? Benjamin Franklin’s picture is on the $100 dollar bill? More than 100 feral cats were once found living in Sleeping Beauty’s castle at Disneyland? Many different learning projects incorporated the number 100 on this special day of school. THE LIONS CLUB will be providing a senior citizen’s Valentine meal for the Roann area, to be held at the Methodist Church on Feb. 11 at 6 p.m. Carry-out will be available. If you know of a shut-in who would appreciate a meal delivered that

evening, please contact Donna Harman at 765-833-5663. You may also call Donna for reservations for the meal by Feb. 6. Seniors are welcome to come even if they do not get their reservations called in, but it helps in knowing how many to plan the meal for.

NORTHFIELD SOFTBALL HOG ROAST will be held on Feb. 3 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Northfield Cafeteria before the Northfield/Manches ter boys’ basketball game. NEW FLAG: Lion Michael Snell replaced the flag on the pole at the Urbana monument on Jan. 24. Thanks to Urbana resident Ann Wolfe for donating this flag. ECHO CAR RACING: On Jan. 14 and 21, the Urbana Lions Club held two qualifying races and four competition races of 25 laps each with one final Championship 25 lap race. This was all done on a replica of a Formula One racetrack in Germany. On Jan. 21, the winner was Selena Plath with Victoria Plath runner-up. Their awards will be presented on Feb. 11. Those attending the January races were: T.J. Layne, Dillin Layne, Victoria Plath, Selena Plath, Bruce Eltzroth, Ken Plath, Marvin and Mary Ann Mast, and the Snell family Matt, Michael, and Bonita - who were in charge of running the race and providing refreshments. Races will be held on

Feb. 11 and 18 at 2 p.m. on a replica of a Formula One racetrack located in Canada. Any Urbana youth, ages 10 to 16 (and adults), are welcome to come. LADIES NITE OUT CLUB: Club President Helen Dawes thanked Helen Haupert for hosting the January meeting in the P o n d e r o s a Restaurant in Wabash. Helen Dawes read the thought of the month, “Praying is talking to our best friend”, and led in the Pledge to the Flag. For devotions, Helen Haupert read a prayer for the coming year entitled “Help me find someone to help today” and a reading from a church newsletter entitled “Life without God is like life without breath.” Club members remembered the birthdays of Anna Lee Biehl, Martha Jane Biehl and Virginia Bozarth and the anniversary of Virginia and Herman Bozarth. President Helen Dawes reported that she had recently visited former club members, Fran Cameron and Priscilla Payne. Roll call was answered by telling something members would like to learn to do in the new year. Anna Lee Biehl gave the secretary’s report for November and December and Peg Heflin gave the treasurer’s report. Mary Jean Wendel tallied the reading points. For the health lesson Georgia Busch read Dr. Oz’s article on 24

hours to a longer life. Erma Dawson was Lucky Lady. Peg Heflin will host the February meeting with a brunch at her home. URBANA LIONS CLUB: President Luke Hunt opened the Club’s Jan. 23 meeting by introducing District 25G Governor Lana Wilson from Pierceton. She told members about several state and international Lions Club current projects and praised the Urbana Lions Club for their participation in these projects. 20112012 International Lions President Wing-Kun Tam challenged Lions around the world to plant one million trees in a year to demonstrate the strength of the Lions global network. So far, 7,800,000 trees have been planted around the world and Lions members are still planting trees, far surpassing the one million goal. The Urbana Lions club planted three new trees on the Urbana School property this past summer as part of this project. A n o t h e r International Project is to provide dictionaries to all thirdgrade students. The Urbana Lions Club will be presenting dictionaries to all third-grade students at Metro North in the near future as their contribution to this project. Eyeglasses and hearing aids are collected by the Urbana club as an ongoing project to help with sight and hearing programs. Before the

business meeting, Lions Michael Snell gave members another sign language lesson. So far, members are working on learning the alphabet and the signs for “thank you” and “you are welcome.” During the business meeting, plans for the March 24 Fish Fry were discussed. A report on the Echo car racing events for Urbana youth was given by Michael Snell. A list of work that needs to be done on the ball diamond, dugouts, storage shed and concession stand has been compiled and members will begin working on this list when weather permits. The Club’s next meeting will be a Valentine’s dinner for members and spouses at 6 p.m. on Feb. 13 in the Community Room at the GrandstaffHentgen Funeral Home. Reservations are due to Mary Ann Mast by Feb. 6. WILDCAT PRIDE WINNERS drawn on Jan. 20 were Kelcie Thomson who showed great work ethic and stamina during an ISTEP practice, and Erin Proebstle for helping keep a pile of papers straightened up. Kelcie was nominated by Mr. Mills and Erin was nominated by Mr. Norman. Students received Wildcat Pride drawstring bags and a YMCA guest pass. SHARP CREEK DATES: Feb. 6 Walking Club after school.
