Dogman of Wabash County shares 45 years of dogs changing lives

by Kalie Ammons While the Dogman of Wabash may sound a bit like an evil creature from a horror film, students in Dog Club and obedience training feel he is more of a superhero. “Gary has a gift that I’ve never seen in anyone else before as far as all the different temperaments of dogs, being able to read the dogs and know what works best to accomplish what you’re trying to accomplish,” said Erin Hickman-Cohee, six year 4-H Dog Club veteran. Gary Henderson has been training dogs with 4-H since 1969. Henderson currently uses his talents to teach an adult obedience course.

As with anything worthwhile, successful members explain it takes more than two hours a week to perfectly train a dog. “It is a full time thing; I ended up not doing any other 4-H projects because it was such a full time thing,” HickmanCohee said. “It was very, very rewarding and it builds an experience with your animal that you don’t really have otherwise. It’s definitely worthwhile.” With the help of Henderson, HickmanCohee was able to take her Bichon Frisés to the State Fair and win first place out of 135 her very first year. “I saw some of the most aggressive dogs I have ever seen and Gary was able (continued on page 7)

Basketball legend Clyde Lovellette visits Wabash County Historical Museum

by Emily Armentrout History Hunters holds monthly events hosted by the Wabash County Historical Museum, which allow people to come in and enjoy presentations on history by people who were actually a part of it. For the month of January, basketball legend Clyde Lovellette visited the History Hunters. Lovellette recounted events from his past about playing high school basketball in Indiana, fulfilling a prophecy at Kansas University, winning gold at the 1952 Helsinki Olympics, success in the NBA and reaching kids here in Wabash County while working at White’s Family and Residential Services. Lovellette entered the Wabash County Historical Museum the morning of his presentation, towering over everyone in attendance, standing 6 foot 9 inches tall. One can only imagine what it would be like facing a man with a presence like that on the basketball court, but Lovellette had a smile that let you know he was happy to share his story with the audience. Lovellette began reminiscing about high school. As a freshman, he stood 6 foot 4, which was unusual back then, according to Lovellette. “I don’t think there was a kid 6 foot when I was in high school,” Lovellette told The Paper. With that type of size difference, Lovellette was an awkward teen. Basketball did not come naturally, even with his height. “In eighth grade, I wasn’t very good, and my freshman year wasn’t good, but I worked all summer long. I was clumsy. Coach had me 1952 OLMPYIC GOLD MEDALIST and NBA legend jumping rope and danc- Clyde Lovellette shows off his gold medal while visiting the ing, which I never liked Wabash County Historical Museum for a History Hunters (continued on page 2) presentation.

Area fire departments battle fire and ice Saturday

FIRE FIGHTERS FROM NOBLE, ROANN, PLEASANT AND WABASH CITY FIRE DEPARTMENTS battled blazing fire and blisteringly cold weather Saturday morning as they fought to extinguish a house fire at 5559 W 100 S. A 911 call was made at 8:18 a.m. White-out conditions made getting to the fire dangerous and challenging as the relentless winds fanned the flames. Little, if anything was salvaged from the house.

Basketball legend Clyde Lovellette... continued from front page to do. Anything to get you more agile, on your toes, more like a boxer rather than flatfooted. So my sophomore year was pretty decent,” continued Lovellette.

Junior year was when Lovellette had finally come into his own on the court. He led his basketball team to the state championship, only to lose out to

Shelbyville. His size and ability on the court made waves in the college basketball-scouting universe, and being from Indiana, Indiana University seemed

like the choice college for Lovellette. Kansas University Coach Phog Allen had a different plan though. Allen attempted to contact Lovellette multiple times before Lovellette finally gave in and visited the university. “He gave up a speech in St. Louis to come to me. I was all set to go to IU. I avoided him so much,” said Lovellette. At one point, he even attempted to convince his parents to lie to Allen when he made a visit to their home. “Dad and Mom, they wouldn’t lie for me. I went out there and he shared the prophecy… I went out

there and met the guys. They were down to earth, the town was beautiful, and I decided to go there.” The prophecy Allen shared was that if Lovellette joined the team, they would win a NCAA championship and go to the Olympics and win a gold medal, but that story will come a little later. Lovellette was ineligible to play basketball as a freshman at KU, but he stuck around Lawrence, Kan. the entire year to work on his skills with his teammates. One skill that seemed to come naturally was his hook shot. Time Magazine has called Lovellette’s hook shot “unstoppable.” “I just had a real knack of looking where the basket is and releasing the ball and just had that nice touch that was pretty accurate and that’s all I shot in college,” Lovellette told The Paper. Though Lovellette spent almost all of his

time at the university, one thing he says he kicks himself for is not applying himself when it came to his education. “I had to get my education after I got done playing. I received my master’s degree at Ball State

and I learned to study more in my master’s program than in my undergraduate classes. I think I wanted to be there and I got grades, and I went to class but I didn’t really apply myself as I should have.” (continued on page 3)

CLYDE LOVELLETTE joined the History Hunters at Wabash County Historical Museum to give a presentation on his experiences in college and professional basketball and winning the gold medal at the 1952 Helsinki Olympics. Lovellette is familiar with Wabash County, as he resides in North Manchester and taught at White’s Residential and Family Services after retiring from basketball. (photo by Emily Armentrout)

Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority asks homeless to appear for count On Jan. 30, homeless individuals are encouraged to be counted as part of a statewide Point In Time Count initiated by the Indiana Housing and C o m m u n i t y D e v e l o p m e n t Authority. In Wabash County, those who volunteer are working to reach individuals who might have slept in an abandoned building or another place not suitable for human habitation. If there was someone whose night was paid for by a local agency or church at a hotel in Wabash County the night of Jan. 29, it is also important that those individuals be counted.

The reason for the count is to determine how many homeless individuals defined by HUD are living in Wabash County and in need of services. Wabash County is part of Region 5, which is coordinated in Howard County. For purposes of the count, HUD’s definition of homeless is an individual or family who stayed in a homeless shelter, transitional housing shelter, place not meant for human habitation such as the street, car, park, abandoned building or a motel paid for with an emergency shelter voucher. On Jan. 30, homeless individuals should go to either: -85 Hope at the Wabash Friends

Church, 3563 State Road 13, Wabash between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. -Bright Light Congregational Christian Church, 310 N. Walnut St., North Manchester between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. There will be backpacks filled with gloves, hats, and other materials available to anyone who successfully completes a form at either survey location. If anyone needs additional information or has questions about the Point In Time Count they can be directed to Linda Wilk, Hands of Hope Director, a division of Family Service Society, Inc. by email at lwilk@famser- or phone at

tiple job positions before finding his second calling. He went into radio and television announcing, was sheriff of Vigo County and even moved to Massachusetts where he taught history and coached girls’ basketball for a year. Finally, Lovellette ended up at White’s Family and Residential Services. Lovellette found his second calling working with the kids at White’s. “The greatest experience at White’s is just like the scripture says, you plant seeds. I think the greatest thing we can do is plant seeds for kids who have never heard about the Lord. Their one mindset is bad, but to change a kid around, and you won’t really know. There were a lot of kids who would accept Christ, but you don’t know.” There is one reward, other than his gold medal, that Lovellette holds in high esteem. “The greatest reward is when a stu-

dent calls you down the road and says, ‘Coach, I’m married now, I have kids, I go to church, and I love the Lord.’ That’s the reward later down the road.” Working with the kids at White’s and his own personal experiences as a student athlete allows Lovellette to leave current students with this advice, “If you don’t do your academics before basketball, you’re doing an injustice to two things: your family and yourself,” said Lovellette. Basketball is something that is not going to be with you all your life, but the education is going to make you more valuable to society than basketball.” Lovellette retired from White’s in 1995 and currently resides in North Manchester, where he can frequently be seen attending Manchester University basketball games.

After the Olympics, Lovellette was drafted by the Minnesota Lakers, a team with which he won his first of three NBA championships and became the inaugural member of basketball’s “Triple Crown Club,” an accomplishment that never even crossed Lovellette’s mind. The Triple Crown Club is made up of seven basketball players who have won an NCAA Championship, an NBA Championship, and an Olympic Gold Medal. “That reward and you buying me a cup of coffee would be the same to me. It’s good to get rewards and be recognized, don’t get me wrong, but winning the gold medal for the United States, that’s important.” Lovellette also joked that Kobe and Lebron can make all that money, but they’ll never be apart of that club, but awards and accomplishments like the triple crown club or being the only basketball player to lead the nation in scoring and win an NCAA championship in the same or his three NBA championships, his 11,947 points in the NBA or being inducted into multiple hall of fames do not compare to winning a gold medal for the United States in Lovellette’s eyes. “Gold medal is the best. I keep coming back there,” added Lovellette. When Lovellette decided to retire, he found himself in mul-

Basketball legend Clyde Lovellette... All his hard work paid off in 1952. The Kansas University Jayhawks won the 1952 NCAA championship, fulfilling the first part of Allen’s prophecy. Lovellette was and is the only basketball player to lead the nation in scoring and win the NCAA championship in the same year. After winning the championship, Lovellette was playing amateur ball when he and six of his KU teammates were selected to compete in the 1952 Helsinki Olympics. “I fault the Olympic committee now for taking all the pros. We played against national teams. Every team we played was supported by their country. They’ve got the pros in there and that reduces the chance for an amateur ball player to win the gold or play in the Olympics,” said Lovellette. The Americans ended up facing and defeating the Russians for the second time in the games, clinching the gold medal for the United States, and completely fulfilling Allen’s prophecy. “If you take all of what I have done and all the awards I have won, I think that tops the list. You are representing the United States, not a team or a state, the whole United States. There is no better reward but to represent the United States,” Lovellette said of winning Olympic gold.

It should be about supporting freedom, individual rights, and the pursuit of happiness. The issue of prohibiting civil unions for anyone is a civil rights issue, just as slavery and the right to vote for women were civil rights issues. During my career, I have worked with many gay, lesbian, and transgendered parents and their children. I have also worked with many straight couples and their children after the parents have divorced. I have seen much more damage done to children of divorced straight couples than I have seen with gay, lesbian, or transgendered couples who are in a committed relationship and have children. As a Christian, my Savior, Jesus Christ, did not speak directly about homosexuality. He did, however, speak directly about divorce. We need to look at how we “allow” divorce and how that freedom goes against the teachings of Christ. Many large and small businesses in Indiana are opposed to HJR-3. Collectively, those businesses bring a lot of economic stimulus to Indiana. The legislature should not be focused on taking away a civil right that will harm our economy. If the question of a definition of civil unions is still an issue that needs to be addressed five years from now, it can be. Within that five years, the United States Supreme Court will probably decide that the civil rights of those who have a sexual orientation other than straight need to be protected. The newspapers, radio stations, television stations, and internet entities who sell the advertisements to those groups on both sides of this discussion will be the only winners, and the losers will be the people of the State of Indiana, because of the reasons I’ve already stated and the perception of us created by the furor. I call upon the Indiana Legislature to put this issue on the very far “back burner.” Jim Smith North Manchester

Jessica Howell and Jason Grossman wed Sept. 15, 2013 Jessica Howell and Jason Grossman were joined in marriage on Sunday, Sept. 15, 2013 at Salomon Farms in Fort Wayne. The outdoor ceremony was held under an arch built by the bride’s father and the aisle was lined with fresh floral bouquets and featured a burlap and lace aisle runner. Pastor Darrell Borders of Portland officiated the ceremony, with the blessing of the couple performed by Reverend Richard Strick of Huntington. The bride wore a strapless gown accented by beaded and embroidered lace appliqué sewn onto ivory netting over a champagne satin lining. The gown featured an Organza band, accenting the sweetheart neckline and illusion train. The bride accented the mermaid-cut gown with a handmade veil of ivory tulle and French netting, enhanced with a lace flower. Borrowed pearls from the mother of the bride were fashioned into a

bracelet and an heirloom cameo pendant was worn coming from the bride’s late g r a n d m o t h e r. Glitter-coated, strappy Stuart Weitzman sandals adorned the bride’s feet. A bouquet of white dahlias, lisianthus, pink lilies, pink spray roses, ivory roses, white veronica, wheat, scabiosa pods, seeded eucalyptus, dusty miller and hypericum berries were hand-tied with ivory lace and carried by the bride. The groom wore a dark heather grey pant and vest combo, completed with an ivory fitted French cuff shirt and a wine paisley tie. He sported a rose gold Lucien Piccard watch with a dark brown leather band and a boutonniere delicately crafted with spray rose, scabiosa pod and hypericum berries. Haley Brandt, friend of the bride, Portland, was the maid of honor and Abbie Howell, cousin of the bride, Indianapolis, was the bridesmaid. Both women wore deep wine Trina Turk

sheaths made of floral lace, featuring a boat neck and three quarter sheer lace sleeves. Both cousins of the groom, Joel Benz, Fort Wayne served as the best man, while Brian Grossman, Brandon, Miss. was

the groomsman. Elijah Howell, Martinsville, was the ring bearer, who proudly carried the rings in a wooden box hand-painted by the groom. Following the ceremony, the bride and groom made a brief

Reader encourages people to “love thy neighbor”

Dear editor, It seems that every time I pick up a new edition of The Paper, I always read a letter from a pastor or concerned Christian, complaining about the world and all those who aren’t like them. I felt it was time to speak out; not just for me, but also for everyone who has ever been condemned for being different. I’m not a Christian by any means, but I’m hardly a bad person. I know a lot of others who feel the same way, but are afraid to speak out for fear of being judged. Judged by people who don’t understand. “Love thy neighbor” and ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you’ are two important things that your God commands. Not to mention Matthew 7:1 in the Bible reads, ‘judge not lest ye be judged.’ Why is it so hard for us to do these things? I’m not excluding myself from this. I used to be very judg-

mental. I’m a far cry from who I used to be, but admittedly I still judge sometimes, unintentionally. Please keep in mind that I am not trying to start trouble with anyone. The point I’m trying to make is, please don’t look down on someone just because they’re different. We may be differ-


ent on the surface, but we are still human beings. Love thy neighbor: thy homosexual neighbor, thy Atheist neighbor, thy African-American

neighbor. Please stop the hate and spread the love. Jennifer Yohe Wabash

Dogman of Wabash County shares 45 years of dogs changing lives... continued from front page to help kids who were about the same size as the dogs be able to control them,” said Hickman-Cohee. “My dog was only like twenty pounds, and she was very shy, and he helped bring her out of the shyness.” After watching Henderson teach, it’s easy to see that his ability to read character extends beyond that of dogs. “The first thing I want to do if a child comes in, well, see that little man with the big dog?,” said Henderson, his eye caught by a little boy struggling with a German Shepherd. “He’s fighting pretty hard. For every child that comes in this room we have a goal for that child. It’s not necessarily what everybody would think, but for me, you can see maybe some issues there, our job is to bring that issue out.” H e n d e r s o n explained how just a little confidence boost would help the boy realize his ability to control the dog and calm his frustrations. “I’ve never met him, but I can tell you by how he’s acting that he needs it,” said Henderson. “And God has a tendency to put

these dogs together with the right people, I don’t care who they are, it’s just the way things work out.” H e n d e r s o n describes how children use dogs to help them through difficult times in their lives, whether it is the stress from a pressure to be a high achieving student or dealing with a difficult foster family situation. “A lot of times we have foster kids bring their dogs, parents will bring their foster children in with their dogs and they form such a bond and they listen and they grow together and it brings the child out, whatever issues they have because they’re able to talk to the dog,” said Henderson. “I like that. I got this thing in my head that no child be left behind.” Henderson relates to the children who confide in their dogs. “I had ulcers at 15 years old, I grew up during the Vietnam War with my brother being in the Vietnam War, so inside I was probably all, tightened up, you know. So, the dog, I’m a little different, people tell me I’m different, dogs are really what brought me out and gave me

someone to talk to and listen,” said Henderson. Henderson then walked over to the boy and adjusted his grip on the dog, explaining to him how to praise him after he does something right. “You take a child who has issues at home or whatever and they bond with their dog and the dog gives them so much confidence, and he needs it,” said Henderson after he left the smiling boy. Any money raised from these classes goes to an account for the 4-H Dog Club and the animal shelter. The non-for-profit “Dog Works” was started by Henderson, Ann Scanlon and Amy Fisher. “I’ve always loved dogs, I’ve always loved kids,” said Scanlon. “I moved to this area a little over ten years ago, and I got involved with the 4-H Dog Club at that time, actually through my sister who’s the agility leader for 4-H Dog Club. “I started volunteering and Gary and I and Amy Fisher started a non-for-profit, Dog Works, to help assist the 4-H County Dog Club and the ani-

mal shelter to help dogs. They’re great people; it really is a good group of people.” “The reason for starting this class is to raise the money for the kids and for whatever issues we can help,” said Henderson. “The number one thing is the child, whatever that child needs from us, that’s what we give.” “They were able to send me to state last year,” said Tori Plath, an interning student with the Club. While working with the dogs and kids a little over ten years ago, Henderson received seemingly disastrous news. “Something happened in 2003, I knew that there was something with me that was not right, so I was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer,” said Henderson. “I handed the obedience class over and that gave me the opportunity to start the adult class. Obviously, I’m still here. Yes, I did have stage 4 cancer, it was a rough road there for a while, but they’re doing a fantastic job with the kids.” Henderson specifically seeks out caring and loving people to

work with the club. “We constantly have kids coming up to us wanting us to hug them, to hold them, wanting constant approval or whatever they need and that’s what we do, so I have to search for the right people,” said Henderson. “Tori Plath is a very special young lady, I can tell she has what it takes. You have to learn how to train the dog, but more importantly, you have to learn how to be with the child.” Henderson finds ways to parallel lessons learned in the course with life in general. If a child is struggling with shyness, stress or anger issues, they can work with the dog to deal with them in a healthy way. Teaching a dog to be wellbehaved gives confidence to the student. Those involved in the course have to be consistent with their pets, and Henderson makes sure the student successfully completes a training command on their own to show that anyone can do something

they put their mind to “The dogs know the commands after about four weeks. It usually takes people about six, eight or ten weeks to fully understand them. But we work with them and they get it down,” said Henderson. Henderson also stresses how talking to your pet helps so many children throughout their lives. In at least one case it seemed like a dream come true. “We’ve had a foster family, and the daughter was so hard because of what she went through. This dog brought her out and it was the first time she ever said ‘I love you,’” said Henderson. “She knelt down by the dog and she couldn’t understand why the dog kept coming after her and I knew the dog, it wouldn’t do a sit-stay, it kept coming to her, and you know, I messed up, I said, ‘it’s just like your dad, when you’re scared, you need your dad.’ And she said, ‘I’m not afraid of nothing.’ I knew then,

oh man, Lord, I messed up there, how am I going to get out of it? And I said, ‘Well, the dog needs you. She just needs to be loved.’ So she talked to him for a few minutes and patted him. The next week, the dog kept coming at her, and this is an experienced dog, she never broke sit-stays, and she said, ‘Well what’s wrong now?’ And I said, ‘She just needs some loving.’ And her parents were standing behind her and you see this little girl knelt down and put her arm around her and you see her mouth the words ‘I love you,’ and that’s the first time that little girl has ever said that.” Sometimes it’s easy to take for granted the unconditional love felt by pets. Henderson, Scanlon and Fisher have found a way to try to return their love through Dog Works. The organization helps with vet bills along with the cost of Dog Club itself.

Duke Tumatoe and The Power Trio come to Eagles Theatre by Eric Stearley Thursday Night Blues kicks off Jan. 30 with Dr. Duke Tumatoe and the Power Trio, the first of the series’ three shows. The Power Trio, made up of James Hill on keyboard, Joseph “G.I. Joe” Maddox on drums, and A.J. Jones on bass, will join Duke on stage at 7:30 p.m. Growing up in Chicago in the 1950s, Duke grew up listening to blues. At 10, he started playing drums, and when he was 13, he heard Muddy Waters for the first time. “He was rehearsing in a nightclub and I was out in the alley with a friend of mine,” said Duke “I was so moved, I want-

ed my whole life to be able to be as invested in the music as he was. He would be in the room playing the song, but he was not in the room at all. He was someplace else.” This was perhaps the single most influential experience in Duke’s early life. “I don’t have the same voice he had and I don’t approach the guitar the same way he did, but the essence of his energy affected me and was one of the prime motivating things in my career.” Shortly after, he picked up guitar. He knew that his life would be music, and to this day, hasn’t held a “real job” outside of his music. “It’s the kind of music I grew up listening to,” said Duke. “That’s what I grew up playing and that’s what I dedicated my life to without even thinking about it.” This motivation led him to become one of the founding members of REO Speedwagon, playing with the band for two years. “We had different musical perspectives,” said Duke. “They wanted to be rock stars. That was

their total motivation. For me, it was about trying to be the best guitar player I could be.” After a trip to California, Duke knew he needed to go in a different direction. “The way they were approaching the goals, I was not comfortable with the situation,” said Duke. “As a young man, I grew up on the south side of Chicago and it had a great influence on me and as a young man, I was very impatient and aggressive, and I knew myself well enough to know that if I was in an environment that I was not comfortable with, I would do something bad, so I quit.” That same year, Duke formed Duke Tumatoe & the AllStar Frogs, which he toured with for 13 years, playing up to 300 shows each year. In 1983, he made some big changes in his life, breaking up the AllStar Frogs and moving to Carmel.

“Thirty-five years ago, I met the woman I’m married to, and she lived here and had young children,” said Duke. “I was in love with her and I moved here.” With the move came a new band, The Power Trio, with whom he has toured since. He’s slowed down the tour schedule significantly, projecting that in 2014, he’ll play between 70 and 90 shows. “I don’t have the same gun to my head that I used to,” Duke said about his six children being grown and out of the house. Shortly after moving to the Indianapolis area, Duke met Tom Griswold of “The Bob & Tom Show,” a relationship that eventually spawned Duke’s comedic song “Lord Help Our Colts,” which he played on the show and adapted many times over the next 25 years based on developments within each football season. Duke said that peo-

by Kalie Ammons Downtown Wabash welcomes a new member to the merchant family this week. Marelli’s Women’s and Home Boutique opens Wednesday. “We offer the home stuff, furniture, décor, lamps, mirrors, clocks and that sort of thing,” said co-founder Maria Marshall. “Then we also offer the women’s side of it, which is the boutique. It has everything from apparel to scarves to handbags to jewelry and lots of gifty-things.” “With the women’s and home boutique, our goal is just to be really unique and we just really want to reach the heart of women,” said cofounder Kelli Winer. “We want people to walk in and feel beautiful.” Along with being business partners, Marshall and Winer are also best friends. “We both run on the same wavelength a little bit, it just birthed out of friendship,” said

Winer. “This is a joint dream. We’re both women of faith and that united us and we felt we were going to be a part of something bigger than us.” The two believe the eccentric store will be a great addition to downtown Wabash. “We feel like downtown is getting really exciting, we just wanted to be a part of that,” said Marshall. “There’s a buzz, and we both want to be a part of the community and be involved. It’s an outlet for our creativity,” said Winer. “Wabash is where we’re from; it’s home.” Marelli’s will celebrate it’s grand opening on April 1 when the doors to their flower shop are finally unlocked. “Our fresh flower shop is going to be a bit more outside the box,” said Winer. “It’s going to be a little bit more whimsy, floral, wildflower, natural, very unique.” The shop was named after it’s owners, blending their names into a brand as unique as their style.

Wright receives Indiana University’s MLK Jr. Building Bridges Award by Eric Stearley Northfield High School graduate and current junior at Indiana University Mackenzie Wright recently received Indiana University’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Building Bridges Award for her work promoting equality, diversity, and empowerment on the university’s campus and in its host city of Bloomington. The award is given to one undergraduate student each year. Wright was selected from more than 30,000 students to receive the award based on the following criteria: Demonstrated passion for change or improvement to fulfill the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Demonstrated leadership in promoting equality, equity, diversity, and justice Demonstrated practices of respect and nonviolence Demonstrated commitment to empowerment Developed innovative measures for the advancement of diversity Among other things, Wright was selected because of her volunteer work with Middle Way

House, an organization dedicated to helping victims of domestic and sexual violence escape abusive situations and build a new life for themselves and their families. Wright was placed with the organization for her four years as an undergraduate through her Cox E n g a g e m e n t Scholarship. “The more I got into it the more I felt passionate about it. I just felt really connected to it,” said Wright. “I guess

that’s what led me to just go above and beyond. One in four women experience sexual violence in their life, so it’s something very prevalent in our society. It’s something I feel compelled to help change.” Wright works in the Middle Way House Daycare, community reception, and as an on-scene advocate, which means that she goes into hospitals and talks with survivors, providing them with support and resources. She

also co-founded an IU Middle Way House chapter last year to bring awareness of domestic and sexual violence to campus, and raise awareness and funding for Middle Way House. Middle Way House C o m m u n i t y Programs Director Debra Morrow nominated Wright for the award. A former victim of domestic violence, Morrow has dedicated her life to helping others through situations similar to the one she found herself in.

“While Mackenzie Wright serves those receiving services from Middle Way House with a motivation derived by the qualities Dr. Martin Luther King embodied, she also serves the IU student population with the same commitment,” Morrow wrote in Wright’s nomination letter. “Her ability to balance the needs of our agency and the needs of the students clearly takes a sincere commitment and Mackenzie is motivated to fulfill this commitment. Her passion

to empower individuals that she works with in her role as a direct service volunteer in our agency is inspiring.” Wright received the award during the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day Leadership Breakfast on Jan. 20. “Just being there was really surreal,” said Wright. “There was a Freedom Rider there. Just to be in the same room was crazy to me.” Wright is pursuing a degree in speech pathology as she continues to volunteer at Middle Way House.

“I actually thought about changing my major in order to do something like that,” said Wright. “I’ve thought before about bringing something like that to Wabash because, as you know, there’s not really anything for survivors at all. There’s no resources really that I know of. The cause has been something that has really interested me. I know that even if I don’t end up doing something like that, I know I’ll continue to volunteer somewhere like Middle Way House.”

NM Historical Society celebrates Lincoln’s birthday On Monday, Feb. 9, the North M a n c h e s t e r Historical Society will celebrate Abraham Lincoln’s birthday with a program, featuring storyteller Doyne Carson, who will appear in character as Abigail Gollaher, a childhood friend of Lincoln. The program is titled “Lincoln: Behind Every Man is the Boy He Used to Be.” The program will show how childhood events shaped and strengthened the character of our nation’s 16th president. The real Abigail Gollaher was the sister of Austin, best friend of Abraham Lincoln. Each story is based on actual events from the life of Abraham Lincoln. This program will lead you back in time

to enjoy the mischief, memories and wisdom of the youthful Lincoln. Carson reports that when Abigail tells listeners to “Walk with me back to Kentucky,” students sometimes are so caught up in the program that they have actually stood up and followed Abigail. Carson has been a storyteller for 22 years and is cofounder of the T i p p e c a n o e Storytellers’ Guild in Lafayette. She earned her BA from Hanover College and received training with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The Historical Society especially encourages students and teachers to attend; the presentation provides material that pertains to

the following Indiana Academic Standards: Theater, English and Language Arts, and Social Studies.

Area fire departments battle fire and ice Saturday A FIREMAN PULLS A FIREHOSE TO BE LOADED onto a truck after battling the blaze that left little more than the shell of a house in the winter landscape. Firefighters deployed mobile reservoirs on the road to hold the large amounts of water needed to extinguish the blaze. Along with the fire departments, the County Highway Department, Emergency Management Agency, and the Red Cross were on the scene to help. (photo by Eric Stearley)

FIREFIGHTERS WATCH AS THEIR FELLOW FIREFIGHTERS put out the house fire with a water turret atop one of the many fire trucks that were than. Heavy winds meant that the firefighters were covered in water blown away from the heavy stream striking the house. It was hard to tell which coats were freshly wet and which were covered in ice. (photo by Eric Stearley)

FIREFIGHTERS GOT CLOSE WITH A HOSE to put out the last flames that remained after a large fire destroyed a home on 100 South. Slippery roads and almost no visibility made the home difficult to reach as fire trucks drove as fast as they could to the scene. (photo by Eric Stearley)

Lady Apaches escape by Gary Andrews With Kyleigh Hampton out with illness and Abby Stein out with an injury the Wabash Lady Apache basketball team needed someone to step up Wednesday against Lewis Cass. Leading scorer Claire Cromer did just that with a 28 point performance with several other players making key shots down the stretch as Wabash used a fourth quarter comeback to top Cass 56-49. Claire Cromer and Sarah Pucket both hit buckets in the first minute but the Lady Apaches trailed 6-4 because of two, three pointers from Savanna Thompson of Cass. Pucket would again hit to knot the score at 6, but the Lady Kings were finding the bucket and led 10-7 when Puckett and Cromer hit two free

throws each to put the Apaches up 11-10. Back came the Kings with four straight to go up 14-11 when Cromer hit before the buzzer to make it 1413. Cass would come out swinging to start the second with two free throws and a three pointer to increase their lead to 20-13. Cromer would stop the run with a bucket and Shelby Stone would connect and the Apaches were down 24-17. Cromer would then close the gap with two straight bombs from behind the arch to make the score 24-23 in favor of the Kings. After a Cass bucket made it 26-23 Sarah Puckett would hit two free throws and was followed by a Lyndsie Thomas bucket to give Wabash a 28-26 lead. With 0.2 on the clock, Cass would foul

Cromer who calmly drained both free throws and the Apaches led 30-26 at the half. Again Cass would start the quarter hot, hitting a three and a two to take the lead back at 31-30. Down 34-32 Thomas would knot the game again with a bucket, but Cass responded with four straight to lead 38-34. Claire Cromer would trade free throws with Cass and with the score 40-36, Jaclyn Lewis would get an offensive rebound bucket at the buzzer and Wabash trailed 40-38 with a quarter to go. Wabash would get the good start to start the fourth quarter. Cromer and Puckett each hit one free throw to tie the score at 40, then Jaclyn Lewis gave the Apaches a 42-40 lead. Cass tied the score

and Claire Cromer answered with a three to put Wabash up 4542. Cass answered Cromer’s answer with an old fashion three and this baby was going to the wire. With 3:44 on the clock, Kristyn Ford would hit a huge three to give Wabash a 48-45 lead and the Apaches called time out. After the time out the Apache defense held and Sarah Ritter connected to go up 50-45. With 2:31 remaining Cass would make it 50-47 on two free throws, but Jaclyn Lewis answered with a bucket. Again the King offense stalled, then fouled Cromer. Claire Cromer hit her 10th & 11th free throws of the game to make it 54-47 with 1:12 on the clock. The Kings would score with 17.1 remaining to make it 54-49, then fouled Cromer again.

By Bill Barrows To say that the artic deep freeze that we have experienced over the past couple of weeks has caused chaos with the high school basketball schedule, let alone the school schedule, is a huge understatement. So, I guess I will continue my stories to the kids about walking to school as a child through two feel of snow uphill both ways until spring. Oh, and here is the updated schedule for basketball games this week. We begin with games on Tuesday, unless Mother Nature says otherwise. The Lady Knights of Southwood travel to Southern Wells for a non-conference game. The Lady Squires of North Manchester travel up to Triton and the Wabash boys will play at the Lakeland Christian Academy. On Wednesday, there

will be a TRC game that is a re-schedule from December, pitting the Lady Apaches of Wabash against Rochester at home. Wabash WebTV will be there to bring you all the action from Wabash on Wednesday, Jan. 29 starting at approximately 7:15 p.m. Thursday’s lone match up is also a game that has now been rescheduled twice. Another TRC contest that has the Lady Apaches traveling to face the Lady Knights at Southwood. Four TRC boys’ match ups highlight Friday night’s action. North Miami hosts Southwood, Wabash makes the trek to Whitko, Northfield heads up to Rochester and Manchester travels to Tipp Valley. On Saturday, it’s the same match ups in opposite venues for the opposite gender. Whitko will travel to Wabash, the Lady Knights will host North Miami and the Lady Squires host Tipp Valley. Those are all evening contests and all three of those games

are also important TRC games. The other girls TRC game is Saturday at noon, where the Wabash WebTV crew will be on the air to bring you the action when Rochester comes to Norse Country.

Dr. Joel Harman takes over Manchester Family Chiropractic by Shaun Tilghman Joel Harman, D.C., recently took the reins at Manchester Family Chiropractic, located at 110 N. Walnut St., following the retirement of former owner Dr. David Rodriguez. Dr. Harman practices the same techniques as his predecessor, but he also incorporates a more multid i s c i p l i n a r y approach when it comes to patient care. Although he grew up in a family where visits to the chiropractor were the norm, and he himself relied on a chiropractor’s services multiple times, Dr. Harman didn’t have an interest in a career in chiropractics until high school. “My chiropractor back home was very sports oriented, and he was even the team physician for a lot of sports teams in the area,” Harman said. “During my junior year of basketball I suffered a very severe ankle injury. I did the rehab with my physical therapist for 6-8 weeks and at that time it was feeling okay and I could stand on it, but as far as mobility it was very limited. My chiropractor then asked me to let him adjust my ankle. “At first I was hesitant because I thought chiropractors only worked on backs and necks, but

then he said something that was very profound: ‘You twisted your ankle, but who untwisted it for you?’ I realized it made sense, so he adjusted my ankle and right away I had full range of motion again—it was amazing. I was 16 or 17 years old then, and at that point my knowledge of chiropractics was very limited, so he really opened my eyes to how much more chiropractics can offer. In the end, that’s what really fueled me to pursue a career in chiropractic.” Harman grew up in a small, farm town in Van Wert, Ohio, and there were 52 people in his high school graduating class. He attended the University of Toledo and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science. He then earned his doctorate from the National University of Health Sciences, a chiropractic school in Chicago, Ill. After practicing in Fort Wayne for a year and a half, Harman admits he was looking for an option that would allow him to get out on his own when some friends suggested he look into North Manchester. “I kind of describe this situation as an answer to a prayer, because at that point I didn’t even know where North Manchester

was,” he added. “So, I came to town on a Friday afternoon in mid-October to get a feel for things around here,” Harman continued. “While in town I met with [Dr. Charles Kelsey and Dr. Vicki Kelsey] and found out they were closing their office ( M a n c h e s t e r Chiropractic Center) at the end of the month to move closer to family. I wasn’t sure I could be ready for the transition in that short of a turnaround, so I stopped to meet with Dr. David Rodriguez as well. He told me he was retiring at the end of the year and I immediately asked what he was going to do with his practice and his patients. We then began talking about me possibly buying the building, and he went on to say that he would love to have someone to take over his patients.” Now that Harman has established himself with a local practice, he hopes to expand people’s knowledge of chiropractics just as his chiropractor did for him. “Chiropractics is my passion and it’s what I love to do,” he explained. “Once I became interested in healthcare and what I can do to affect it, I wanted to focus on chiropractics not only because it’s considered an alternative medicine, but

because it’s also a natural medicine. We’re not doing surgeries or giving injections or even prescribing medications, although we do have supplements that we can use to help people with certain ailments or conditions. “For me that really struck a chord, because the medical world we’re living in, and have been living in for the past 40-50 years, is what I call ‘sickcare.’ We think of it as healthcare, but really people are only treated once they’re sick, and I want to be on the other end of the spectrum. I want to be on the healthcare end—I want to promote health and prevent sickness. My degree is in sports medicine, and I love that part of it; so there’s that sports realm that I love, but all you have to do is read the sign out front to hopefully understand that I want to promote health and wellness for families in the community.” Harman went on to say that more and more now people are looking for alternatives to their medical doctors in certain situations, and that goes along with his main goal of expanding people’s views on chiropractics. “Honestly, chiropractics encompass more than just the back and neck; it deals with a lot of different issues, such as m i g r a i n e s , headaches, digestive issues, insomnia, or problems with extremities,” he added. “I’ve adjusted people’s necks for migraines and headaches, and I’ve adjusted backs, knees, ankles, and hips,” Harman continued. “Basically, if two bones come together to make a joint, we can adjust it. There are really two main techniques: the Activator Method and manual adjustments. I have training in both, which is a big draw for new patients that aren’t sure which they would prefer. “I also incorporate a lot of muscle work and rehab into my treatment plans, which I think is crucial. If people are just

DR. JOEL HARMAN stands in front of Manchester Family Chiropractic, which he took over following the retirement of former owner Dr. David Rodriguez. “Chiropractics is my passion and it’s what I love to do,” said Harman. (Photo by Shaun Tilghman) getting adjusted that’s great, because it’s our number one tool, but what attaches to all of those bones: muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, skin, etc. So, in my mind you have to address those as well, otherwise you’re only doing half of your job.” According to Dr. Harman, as far as he knows he’s the only chiropractor within 100 miles of Fort Wayne that is certified in the McKenzie Method, which was developed by a physical therapist and deals specifically with herniated discs. He is also a certified Kinesio Tape Practitioner, which is a taping technique used for joint fixation, overuse of muscles, lymphatic drainage, improving circulation, etc. “I completed several hundred hours of post-grad work and passed exams in order to receive national certification in each of those techniques,” Harman explained. “In my opinion, the

McKenzie Method and the Kinesio Tape working in conjunction with the chiropractic and the rehab helps me achieve such good results with my patients— it’s the whole multid i s c i p l i n a r y approach. “As far as the McKenzie Method, research has shown it to be much more effective than surgery or injections because you can literally move that slipped or herniated disc back into place; so it’s just an awesome technique. Kinesiology Tape is not new by any means – it’s been around since probably the 70s—but it’s recently become very popular in the sports world. It works very well if there is any sort of dysfunctional movement because you can kind of turn on muscle groups that weren’t working very well, as well as turning overused muscle groups off neurologically.” In the end, Dr. Harman once again stressed that his

main objective is to promote health and wellness. “I would even like to work with the Parks & R e c r e a t i o n Department, the public library, and the schools to hold promotional events like a health and wellness fair,” he concluded. “I just want people to take care of their body and live life to the fullest potential— I want to be part of that.” Harman hopes to hold an open house in the near future so people can come get to know him, as well as to celebrate Dr. Rodriguez’s retirement. Walk-ins are welcome at Manchester Family Chiropractic and the office hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to noon; and Saturday by appointment. The phone number is still 260-982-2008, and the business website is coming soon at w w w. m a n c h e s t e r

February 2014: Feb. 13 Mr. & Mrs. Scott Hendry, Feb. 25 Mr. & Mrs. Earl Good. Wow, what lucky ladies…not only are they celebrating their wedding anniversaries, but isn’t February the month that we treat our special someone to Valentine Day gestures of affection? Oops, the pressure is on fellas! CELEBRATING A BIRTHDAY OR ANNIVERSARY in the Lagro area, please email me or call with the specifics. Maybe you would like a special message printed to that special someone, here’s your opportunity. SPEAKING OF VA L E N T I N E S DAY…fellas and ladies, try to think outside the box when coming up with ideas for ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Sure, flowers and chocolates are great, but try to amaze that special someone. It’s your time to shine and be creative. I want to hear from you…your ideas and suggestions for ways to amaze that special lady or fella in your life on Valentine’s Day. I will print these ideas and suggestions, hopefully to help all those who are struggling for ideas for Valentine’s Day. THE HOG NUT FRY DINNER has arrived! Yes, you have waited patiently with great anticipation of this mouth-watering event. The American Legion will hold this fine dining experience on Feb. 8 from 5—8 p.m., or until the hog nuts are gone! This is open to the public, so spread the word and bring a friend or two with you. Remember, you

have to be 18 years of age or older to enter. My only question, as my mouth salivates, what sauce do I dip those fried hog nuts in? I’m normally a honey-mustard sauce guy, but I’m thinking a thick and sweet brown sugar barbecue sauce will do nicely. I guess I could man-up and eat them with no sauce too. LITTLE LEAGUE SIGN UPS will be held Feb. 15 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Lagro Community Building. Please mark this date on your calendar. With the artic weather we are having it is hard to believe baseball season is not that far off. IF YOU HAVEN’T REGISTERED TO VOTE you may do so at the Lagro Community Building for the upcoming county elections. SPEAKING OF ARTIC WEATHER here’s a tip from someone who lived in Minnesota for many years. Do you hate it when your windshield wipers are frozen to your car windshield in the morning? Tip: when you finish driving your car for the day flip your wipers up

and leave them that way over night. In the morning scrape your windshield and then flip the wipers back down in the normal position or leave them up, turn them on and drive around that way to get some laughs. TIME FOR YOUR ISAAC-ISM FOR THE WEEK: “Nothing in life is completely secure, just as it is in the sport of tennis as it is in life there are too many variables. In tennis there are the variables of the racket, the court surface, the weather, the opponent, the spin and speed of the ball. Where you were. Who you were. Life and tennis would be boring if each day were the same. Variables can bring positive or negative circumstances, winning a point or losing one, a great day or not so great day. For me, this is an unbelievable attraction to tennis and life”. AS ALWAYS do me a favor and have a great week! PLEASE EMAIL YOUR NEWS AND INFORMATION to isaac.triplett@yahoo. com and or call me at 260-274-2261.

Lady Norse roll at Madison Grant

by Gary Andrews Wednesday night at home against Bluffton the Northfield Lady Norse basketball team got off to a hot start and led 24-6 after one, only to take their foot off the pedal in a 51-24 win. Thursday at

Madison Grant that didn’t happen, as the Norse led 19-2 after one and 38-5 at the half in route to a 6418 win over the Argylls. Getting a couple games in after their 20-day lay off, the Norse found their shooting, making 27

of 57 field goal attempts for 47 percent. The Norse defense forced 27 turnovers while committing just 5. Leading the way was Payton Thomson with 23 points, which includ-

ed 9 of 14 from the field and 5 of 8 from behind the arch. Thomson added 1 rebound, 2 steals. Katie Stephan added 12 points, hitting 6 of 11 shots. Stephan added 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 7 steals. The third player in double figures was Arie Kennedy, scoring 11 points on 5 of 7 shooting. Kennedy also had 4 rebounds, 5 assist, 4 steals. Kylie Echard added 8 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assist. Jacklyn Peas had 5 points, 2 steals. Sidney Reed had 3 points, 1 rebound, 4 assist, 2 steals. Abby Keaffaber had 2 points, 2 rebounds. Cherish Leming had 2 rebounds, 1 steal. Jordan Bratch had 2 rebounds. Marlee Stefanatos had 1 rebound. “We played our most complete game of the year,” said Coach Salmon of the team. The junior varsity fell to Madison Grant 40-34. Jacklyn Peas led Northfield with 9 points. Abby Keaffaber and Jordan Bratch added 8 points each.

Wabash County Emergency Food and Shelter Program has been awarded federal funds made available through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/Federal Emergency Management Agency under the Emergency Food and Shelter Board Program.

Open Mon.-Fri. 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Wabash County Emergency Food and Shelter Program is in anticipation of receiving $5,613.00 to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the county. The selection was made by a National Board that is chaired by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency and consists of representatives from the American Red Cross, Catholic Charities USA, National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA, The Jewish Federations of North America, The Salvation Army, and the United Way Worldwide. The Local Board was charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in high need areas around the country. A Local Board made up of representatives from the Emergency Management Agency of Wabash County, Catholic Charities, the American Red Cross, The Salvation Army, Wabash Ministerial Association, and Wabash County United Fund will determine how the funds awarded to Wabash County are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local service agencies in the area. The Local Board is responsible for recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds made available under this phase of the program. Under the terms of the grant from the National Board, local agencies chosen to receive funds must: 1) be private voluntary non-profits or units of government, 2) be eligible to receive Federal funds, 3) have an accounting system, 4) practice non-discrimination, 5) have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and or shelter programs, and 6) if they are a private voluntary organization, have a voluntary board. Qualifying agencies are urged to apply. Wabash County has distributed Emergency Food and Shelter funds previously with Living Well in Wabash County participating. This agency was responsible for providing free food to individuals and families. Public or private voluntary agencies interested in applying for Emergency Food and Shelter Program funds must contact Steve Johnson, Wabash County United Fund, 73 W. Canal St, Wabash, IN, 46992, 260-563-6726 for an application. Deadline for applications to be received is Noon, February 14, 2014. 22053
