Vote Center Draft Plan open for review to the public by Ashley Flynn On Jan. 15, a public hearing was held at the Wabash County Courthouse with the purpose of presenting to the public a proposal put together by the Vote Center Study Committee and answer questions. The Vote Center Study Committee, formed in the spring of 2011, has been meeting regularly to discuss the possibility of vote centers replacing the traditional precinct based voting within the county. Currently, there are 26 precincts at 20 locations throughout the county, and voters are required to vote at their assigned precinct, which is determined by where the voter lives.

In July 2011, Indiana passed a law allowing each county to decide if they wanted to switch to a vote center system, which would allow Wabash County citizens to vote at any vote center in the county that is most convenient to them on Election Day. Indiana had three pilot counties – Wayne, Cass and Tippecanoe – test out the vote centers. These counties found that voters enjoy the vote centers and it increased voter turn out. Wabash County leaders decided to propose the vote centers based on these results, and they also believe it would save taxpayers money because it would decrease the amount of supplies used, cut down on office time and require just 63 poll center workers instead of the current 152.

The estimated start up costs for vote centers totals at $57,000, but the total estimated savings per year is $15,000 countywide. With the savings, the county should make the start up costs back within three to four years. There are currently 20 voting locations, but if the change were to occur, there would be nine, which is still well over the required limit for Wabash County. Indiana law states that there must be one voting location per 10,000 registered voters. Wabash County has approximately 22,500 registered voters, which, by law, requires just three voting locations. The Vote Center Study Committee is proposing one Vote Center in each of the seven townships but three in the City of Wabash. Elaine Martin, a member of

Hoffman’s Nursery and Scott’s Landscape Services Announce Merger Companies Combine to Better Serve Customers and Communities by Shaun Tilghman North Manchester News Journal On Jan. 1, a merger occurred between Scott’s Landscape Services (302 Strauss Provimi Rd., North Manchester) and Hoffman’s Nursery &

Landscaping Inc. (4170 W. 200 N., Wabash), in order to allow different divisions of the respective companies to focus primarily on their specialty, thus resulting in better service for all customers. In 2003, Brian Hoffman became the third generation to join the family business at Hoffman’s Nursery. Brian’s grandfather, Robert, founded

the original company in 1938, and Brian’s father, Larry, got involved in 1972. Larry’s wife, Cindy, joined the business in 1978, and the couple purchased it in 1983. Brian’s younger brother, Darin, also returned to the business in 2007, after serving in the U.S. Navy. Scott Manges founded Scott’s Landscape Services in 1975, fol(continued on page 5)

the county election board, sees no reason why the proposal will not get approved. She said the only hindrance would be that some people just do not like change. The biggest benefit of voting centers is convenience. Voters can choose to vote at whichever Voting Center they want. Wabash County will continue to use Microvote Infinity Machines, which will allow voters to go to any vote center and retrieve the correct ballot style

electronically. In addition to the convenience of choosing where to vote, the committee has proposed to increase voting hours. Two Saturdays prior to Election Day, satellite vote centers will be open, which would allow any voter in the county to vote early absentee-in-person. The two proposed satellite locations are in LaFontaine and North Manchester. The proposal is open to the (continued on page 6)

Steven Satterly to plead guilty to attempted murder by Brent Swan Wabash County Prosecutor Bill Hartley reached a plea agreement Jan. 14 with Wabash resident Steven Satterly in connection with a 2010 stabbing at 692 Columbus St., Wabash. Terms of the plea agreement state Satterly will plead guilty to the attempted murder of Holly Honeycutt. On March 24, 2010, officers from the Wabash City Police Department responded to a call from Honeycutt stating she had been stabbed by her child’s father, Satterly, and that he had fled from the scene in a gray Oldsmobile Bravada. When officers arrived at the scene, they found Honeycutt standing at the front door bleeding profusely from the neck. Honeycutt was immediately transported by Wabash City Fire Dept. Paramedics to Wabash County Hospital where she was later flown to Parkview Hospital, Fort Wayne. At the time of the incident, Honeycutt was at home with her one-year old child and her aunt, Melanie Honeycutt. Melanie stated to authorities that she was helping Holly out at the time of the incident as Holly was pregnant, when she heard Holly scream from the bedroom. When she went to see what was wrong, Melanie witnessed Satterly standing in the bedroom and Holly run out of the room bleeding. Melanie also stated to Wabash City Police Officers that she attempted to call 911, but that Satterly stated, “No

STEVEN SATTERLY one is calling 911.” Melanie then grabbed the one-year old child and ran out the front door to get help. In the ambulance on the way to the hospital, Holly told WPD Officer Craig Blocher that Satterly had stolen her Bravada after holding a knife to her neck. Authorities were able to learn of Satterly’s movements through phone calls to his mother prior to his apprehension in California on March 29. On March 29, a California Highway Patrol officer attempted to stop Satterly for speeding on Interstate 15, near San Bernardino. Satterly then led California Highway Patrol Officers on an 80-mile long, high-speed pursuit, before running into backed up traffic in Burbank, Calif. As officers approached the vehicle, Satterly attempted to flee again, after swerving to (continued on page 6)

We have more than $400 million in

unclaimed assets, and in the Northeast region alone there is more than $23 million. Times are still tight for a lot of people and I want everyone to know how easy it is to search for money that you may never knew existed in the form of accounts or wages,” Zoeller said.

January is National Stalking Awareness Month

Stalking is unpredictable and dangerous as has been evidenced by the recent death of a Montpelier woman who worked and went to school in Grant County. This unfortunate tragedy has occurred in the midst of January, which is nationally recognized as Stalking Awareness Month. Stalking is a crime that affected 6.6 million victims in one year, according to the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey: 2010 Summary report. The theme—

“Stalking: Know It. Name It. Stop It,” challenges the nation to fight this dangerous crime by learning more about it. Stalking is a crime in all 50 states. In one of five cases, stalkers use weapons to harm or threaten victims, according to the National Center for Victims of Crime. Stalking is also one of the significant risk factors for female homicides in abusive relationships. Stalking is difficult to recognize, investigate, and prosecute. Unlike other crimes, stalking is not a sin-

gle, easily identifiable crime but a series of acts, a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause that person fear. Stalking may take many forms, such as assaults, threats, vandalism, burglary, or animal abuse, as well as unwanted cards, calls, gifts, or visits. One in four victims reports that the stalker uses technology, such as computers, global positioning system devices, or hidden cameras, to track the victim’s daily activities, said the National Center for Victims of

Crime. Stalkers fit no standard psychological profile, and many stalkers follow their victims from one jurisdiction to another, making it difficult for authorities to investigate and prosecute their crimes, said the National Center for Victims of Crime. Locally, Hands of Hope, a division of Family Service Society, Inc., along with local victim’s assistants at the local law enforcement agencies and prosecutor’s office, have resources to assist stalking victims.

Hands of Hope Advocates can assist a victim with creating a safety plan, giving the victim a 911 phone and offering safe shelter or assistance in completing paperwork for a protective order. But, first the victim must realize services are available to them. That is where the community can come in to play. Every school, business and church can assist in increasing awareness and reducing victim isolation by promoting Hands of Hope’s information. To receive brochures or

hotline cards for Hands of Hope, call 664-0701. In this day of technology, another way to assist in raising awareness of Hands of Hope is by adding information about Hands of Hope to Facebook or websites. A link could be added with Hands of

Hoffman’s Nursery and Scott’s Landscape... continued from front page lowing his graduation from Manchester College. The familyowned, full-service business has undergone many changes while serving Wabash County, as well as surrounding counties, but customer satisfaction always remained a priority. In fact, Scott’s Landscape Services was awarded North Manchester Chamber of Commerce “Business of the Year” for 2004. Tim McLaughlin, executive director of the North Manchester Chamber of Commerce, said, “Both Scott Manges and Brian Hoffman are very excited about the partnership, as it will allow ultimate service in all areas for their customer base. It’s important to note that the local business [now Scott’s Turf Management] will continue to operate out of the same location in North Manchester, and Scott, along with the employees, will continue to serve your needs in North Manchester.” According to a press release issued by the two companies, they will “combine equipment, knowledge, and manpower, in order to provide a service that is superior to any competitor.” “Actually, I had been thinking about it for quite a while,” said Brian, when asked about the merger. “I stopped in here to talk to Scott one day because he’s getting closer to retirement age, and I had heard he was thinking about what he wanted to do. I knew he still wanted to work, but he was looking for a good exit strategy from the ownership part of it. His biggest concern was keeping things local – not selling all of his accounts to a national company and making sure that all of his help who wanted to stay on could. “It’s a good opportunity because they fill the weaknesses that we had in our business and we fill the weaknesses that they had – they weren’t into the hardscapes and they didn’t do the volume of landscape work that we’re doing; we fertilized yards, but nowhere on the scale of what they were doing, and we didn’t mow at all or do

irrigation, but those are areas we’re looking to expand. Overall property management will benefit, because people can make one phone call and get everything done on their property.” Scott added, “I had thought about this possibility years ago, but I never thought Hoffman’s would be interested in the mowing aspect, which has always been a big part of our business. So, when I found out that Brian had an interest in trying that part of the business too, while giving us the possibility for this business to continue to have a presence in North Manchester, that really perked my ears up. “I’ve known Hoffman’s Nursery my whole 38 years in business, and I’ve always had the highest respect for their business. I’m really excited that we will continue to be a part of a family business, especially a third-generation business, which is unheard of in our industry. As we talked, I could tell that Brian’s vision for the future is right on, and I think he can make it happen because he’s young and ambitious. I’m just excited for the future, and knowing that our little business here in North Manchester is going to be a part of it.” Following the merger, Scott continues to manage the greenkeeper and mowing services, just as he did before, except now it is his primary focus. “Before, Scott was doing every aspect of the business, just like I was trying to do every aspect of ours,” Brian added. “Now, I can let him do all of the turf stuff, which he has more knowledge about, and I’m able to take over the landscape and hardscape (sidewalks, patios, retaining walls, etc.) parts of the business,” continued Brian. “I just think it’s beneficial to our customers to have people who are focused on certain areas of the company, because we even run our crews that way. So, it’s not somebody that just does these things every once in a while.” According to the press release, Brian, who is an ICPI

(Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute) and Advanced NCMA (National Concrete Masonry Association) certified installer of pavers and retaining walls, designs and quotes all landscape and hardscape projects. It goes on to state, “once a project is scheduled, you can rest assured that the team arriving to do the work is experienced and qualified.” Coley Schenkel, the landscape manager, has 15 years experience at Hoffman’s, while Darin Hoffman, the hardscape manager, is an ICPI and Advanced NCMA certified installer as well. Kevin Pratt, a Manchester High School graduate, manages all landscape and property maintenance (trimming, mulching, weed control, etc.) by working with clients to develop customized management strategies. “We’ve got two Manchester guys that work for us in Wabash – Travis Selleck and Kevin Pratt – so it’s nice to have the ability to move them up here to help run different aspects of this business,” Brian explained. “Basically, we have guys that have been doing this for years; this is a high-turnover industry and we have a lot of experience, so I would put us up against anybody in that aspect. As far as the nursery, my dad (Larry) is definitely the guy there – he has way more knowledge than I do.” Larry added, “If it wasn’t for Brian, or my other son, Darin, I wouldn’t still be doing this, because after a certain age you start to lose that enthusiasm you had when you began doing something. When Brian took the initia-

tive to set this up, I was skeptical at first – personally, I wasn’t too excited about the mowing – but the more we looked at it, and with all of the help we have, I think it’s going to work out great. “It’s our 75th anniversary, and we’ve made some changes along the way to get here; now, combining with Scott’s is going to bring in a lot of great assets. If you talk to a lot of other landscapers, who aren’t in all the different areas that we’re in, a year like last one [with extreme heat and drought] was tough on them; so, the more we continue to diversify, the more we increase our stability.” With the merger, the diversity of services the companies can offer includes, but is not limited to, the following: Turf Management: mowing, fertilization, weed control, aeration, seeding, irrigation, fall clean up, rolling, insect control, mole control, and snow removal - Landscape: design, installation, trimming, weeding, mulching, fertilization, lighting, irrigation, and insect control - Hardscape: patios, sidewalks, retaining walls, driveways, concrete sealing, paver sealing, lighting, garden walls, fireplace, fire pit, and outdoor kitchens - Retail Store: garden center, 16-acre nursery, trees, shrubs, perennials, statuary, pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers “Hopefully, us diversifying our businesses will make us stronger, and allow us to ride the ups and downs of both the economy and Mother

Nature,” Brian said. “We’ve been very fortunate that our communities have supported us – Scott has been here a long time, we’ve been in Wabash a long time – and we both have the philosophy that, if you do good work, and you’re loyal to your customers, hopefully they’ll be loyal to you. “We are a familyowned business and we’re out there trying to compete the best we can with national companies like TruGreen. We’re not playing on a level playing field, in terms of buying power, but we’re doing everything we can to be competitive, and this merger helps us do that by bringing our volume up when we order. But, when your kids play youth basketball or little league, who is sponsoring those teams; it’s not the TruGreens and the Walmarts, it’s businesses like Scott’s and Hoffman’s trying to contribute back to the community.” “We service all of Wabash County, as well as the surrounding counties, and we’re even looking to expand,” Brian continued, “but by and large, this county has been excellent to both of our businesses. We’ve got good, loyal people in this county, and we take care of

So, from the customers’ point of view, I think we’re just going to be so much better in terms of what we can offer.” Some of those things that will now be offered include regular retail hours and an increased availability of plant material. “Here in Manchester, I see the ability to pull plant material so much quicker because we have a lot of things in stock and we get deliveries weekly or biweekly,” Brian explained, “whereas

We’re also now looking to add 6-10 employees this year – about half of those in Manchester and half of those in Wabash – so that’s exciting as well.” Scott added, “I think the biggest thing for our customers is that we can now offer full service. The problem in being a small business is that often it’s not that you can’t do some of these things, but you just don’t have the manpower to get the job done efficiently; now, if a customer

All of the living history programs are performed in authentic period clothing and told in first-person style. “A high degree of historic authenticity has been achieved as a result of hours of research and attention to detail and dialect.” February dates to remember are: Feb. 6 third quarter midterm grades will be sent home; Feb. 7 – the Great American Shakeout Earthquake Drill; Feb. 8 – Social Studies Fair Judging; Feb. 11 – PTO meeting at 6:30 at Sharp Creek; Feb. 18 – No school (make-up day if needed).

ROANN RESIDENTS AND VISITORS got to enjoy some new decorations over the holiday season, thanks to Cameron Huffman and Educational Outreach Coordinator for the Honeywell Foundation, Inc.

Roann was gifted with eight banners in 2012 and will be receiving 20 more in 2013. A volunteer is being sought to weld brackets for the new banners coming this year.

Sen. Merritt Proposes New Approach to Outlaw Synthetic Drugs State Sen. Jim Merritt (RIndianapolis) recently filed legislation to give law enforcement officers and p r o s e c u t o r s statewide the specific tools they need to target manufacturers and users of dangerous synthetic drugs. Merritt’s bill, if approved by the Indiana General Assembly, will act as a multi-faceted approach to stop the proliferation and sale of synthetic drugs that are often marketed to Hoosiers under names like “Spice” and “Bath Salts.” First, Merritt’s bill proposes a broad definition of synthetic drugs that does not rely on the chemical makeup of individual substances. Under the bill, the definition for “synthetic drugs” includes: A substance a reasonable person would believe is a synthetic drug. A substance a reasonable person would believe is being sold or purchased as a synthetic drug. A substance that a person knows or should have known is intended to be consumed and that consumption is intended to cause or simulate intoxication. “Despite two welli n t e n t i o n e d attempts to thwart

Glenis Rose, 84 Wabash resident

this scourge of synthetic drugs in our society, manufacturers are still quickly finding different chemical compounds that allow them to skirt our current laws, even with emergency policymaking rules in place,” Merritt said. “If this new definition is approved, making a slight change in the chemical makeup of a drug but continuing to market that substance as one that will cause intoxication, will be illegal.” State police officials said the new synthetic drug definition is a vital tool for officers. “People are learning that the most lucrative way to sell synthetic drugs is to manufacture their own,” Tami Watson, an Indiana State Trooper, said. “Unfortunately, these black market dealers are purchasing chemicals online without knowing what these substances are or their side effects, but still fully intending for them to cause a high after consumption. This is very dangerous.” Merritt’s legislation will also alter the current definition of “intoxication” under Indiana code to include impairment by any substance, excluding food and food ingredients, tobacco or a dietary supplement. The Hoosier state’s current definition for intoxication only includes being under the influence of certain substances like

alcohol and controlled drugs. “Indiana State Police have experienced several cases where drivers were severely impaired by unidentified synthetic drugs, but our officers were unable to cite,” Watson said. “This new definition for intoxication will allow us to help keep those individuals off the road.” Merritt said his legislation would also strengthen law enforcement officers’ tools against Indiana retailers who are selling synthetic drugs and look-alikes for profits. In such a situation, Merritt’s bill calls for retail merchants’ certificates to be automatically suspended for one year. A second offense will warrant a Class D Felony. Attorney General Greg Zoeller, who recently launched a statewide synthetic drug enforcement initiative, worked with Merritt to identify ways to strengthen current state law and expand enforcement opportunities. Under Merritt’s proposed legislation, the Deceptive Consumer Sales Act (DCSA) and the drug nuisance statute would be strengthened in order to help the Attorney General’s office bring civil actions against retailers to stop the sale of synthetic drugs. “Synthetic drug manufacturers have continued to manipulate their products’ ingredients to avoid complying with

Indiana’s laws,” Zoeller said. “And some retail merchants are knowingly selling these drugs marked with phony labels like ‘bath salts’ and ‘potpourri’ and implying these products are safe. This legislation would strengthen state statutes and give the Attorney General’s office more tools to use when prosecuting retailers caught selling these types of drugs.” Currently, the Department of Revenue (DOR) can revoke a retailer’s business license through an administrative process if there is a criminal conviction. Zoeller worked to include the provision that would allow judges to order the DOR to immediately revoke a retail merchant certificate in judgments issued based on DCSA violations. Zoeller said this provision could stop a problem business from operating even if a separate criminal case was still pending. Merritt’s legislation will likely be assigned to the Senate Committee on Corrections and Criminal Law. “My message to synthetic drug makers, retailers and users is this: The distribution of these dangerous substances will stop,” Merritt said. “We must eliminate any interest Hoosiers have in buying, selling and manufacturing synthetic drugs.”

Flu-related deaths in Indiana now at 27 State health officials are now reporting 27 deaths due to flu-related illness in Indiana. The overwhelming majority of the deaths, 24, have occurred in individuals older than 65 years. By comparison, Indiana had no flu-related deaths during the 2011/12 season and three deaths in the 2010/11 flu season. State health officials, in cooperation with local health departments, have reached out to longterm care facilities to advise on the seriousness of influenza and provide recommendations for reducing its spread and encouraging the facilities to offer the vaccine to residents and staff. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is now reporting that flu-deaths have reached epidemic levels, which simply means the nation is experiencing a higher number of flurelated deaths than was expected. “We are experiencing a more severe season than in recent years, however it’s important to recognize that flu is unpredictable and we have been through this before,” said State H e a l t h Commissioner William VanNess II, M.D. “Everyone older than six months should be vaccinated as a first line of defense. Frequent hand washing, covering your cough and staying home if you’re not feeling well will also help protect you and keep the flu from spreading.” No shortage of flu vaccine is being reported, but health officials say there are reports of some locations temporarily depleting their supply due to the current high demand. A flu vaccine locator can be found at gov. Flu vaccine can usually be found at local health departments, pharmacies and with health care providers.

In a report last week, the CDC said the 2012/13 influenza vaccine was about 62 percent effective. This season’s vaccine offers protection against the three most common strains of influenza: H3N2, H1N1 and Influenza B. The H3N2 strain appears to be predominant thus far in the 2012/13 flu season. Health officials stress that the flu vaccine is the best protection against flu. Flu vaccination is recommended for anyone six months of

age or older. It is especially important for those at higher risk of complications related to the flu, to get vaccinated. High risk individuals include pregnant women, young children, people with chronic illnesses and/or compromised immune systems and the elderly. Symptoms of influenza include: high fever, headache, fatigue, cough, muscle aches and sore throat. Health officials encourage anyone experiencing these

symptoms to contact their health care provider. Thorough and frequent hand washing, covering your cough with a tissue or your sleeve and staying home when you are sick can all help reduce the spread of the flu.

Knights clinch share of TRC Southwood: 57 Tippecanoe Valley: 39

By Gary Andrews The Southwood girls basketball team did something Saturday that has happened just once in the history of girls basketball at the school, win the Three Rivers Conference. The Knights clinched at least a share of the TRC by defeating Tippecanoe Valley 57-39 to give them a perfect 6-0 conference record and improving to 12-4 on the year. Southwood plays North Miami Saturday and, with a win, would win the TRC out right. The Knights lead Wabash by one game. With the parents in the stands more nervous than the players, the Lady Knights calmed some nerves early. Trailing 6-4, Southwood would go on a 12-0 run to

open a 16-6 gap. Katie Stouffer got it going with a bucket as four different players scored during the run. Amy Bowman hit a lay up off of a steal to put Southwood up, with Kaley Harness hitting a 3-pointer and Anna Marie Farlow a bucket. With five different players scoring the Knights opened a 21-10 lead before Valley hit two buckets to end the quarter with Southwood leading 21-14. Sarah White would give Southwood a nine-point lead twice early in the second as Valley tried to keep pace. White and Farlow would be the only two Knights to score in the quarter, but it was enough to out score Valley 13-9 to increase the lead as the Knights led 34-23 at the half. White scored nine points in the quarter. The Knights would double up on Valley in the third, winning

Dale advances to state Hoop Shoot On Jan. 19, several local students participated in the Elks Northeast District Hoop Shoot at Indian Springs Middle School in Columbia City. In the girls 10-11 year-old division, Ariel Dale took first place and advanced to the State Hoop Shoot contest held in New Castle on Feb. 22-24. Madison Lutz took third place in the 8-9 year-old division, while Brogan Templin came in sixth in the 8-9 year-old boys division. Derek Vogal claimed third among the 10-11 year-old boys and Kelcie Thomson came in second in the 12-13 year-old girls division Logan Peas took fifth in the 12-13 year-old boys.

the quarter 16-8. Katie Stouffer started the quarter with two free throws and was followed with buckets from Bowman and White to lead 40-23. After a Valley bucket, Bowman would score six-straight points to give Southwood its largest lead of the night at 46-25. Valley would out score Southwood 6-4 the last two minutes, with Southwood leading 5031 after three. White and Stouffer would hit to start the fourth quarter and boost the lead to 56-33. With Valley scrambling for the ball and the Knights milking the clock, seven points were scored the rest of the game as the Lady Knights clinched the TRC with a 57-39 win. White scored a team-high 17 points with two rebounds and two assists. Stouffer added 12 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocks. Amy Bowman recorded 10 points, six rebounds, a steal and three blocks. Ana Marie Farlow added eight points, four assists and two steals. Southwood out-rebounded Valley 39-26 and shot 12-of-18 from the free throw line. The junior varsity topped Valley 26-20. Aleesha Phillips scored 12 to lead the Knights.

WABASH’S TYLER BREWER OUTRACES the North Miami defense to the bucket during a steal turned lay up Friday in Coolman Gymnasium. Brewer scored 11 points against North Miami during the Apaches’ 81-67 Three Rivers Conference victory. (photo by J.D. Sparks)

The Apaches forced North Miami into 31 turnovers and attempted 30 more shots during an 81-67 Wabash victory. Apache Head Coach Tom Robbins felt exiting with a lead in the first quarter after his team played at such a fast pace was a major factor in his team’s victory. “I was feeling good in the first quarter,” he said. “With a lead in first quarter, and that we knew this game eventually get top of them, we knew we’re in a pretty good situation.” Six Warrior turnovers helped the Apaches build a lead as big as 25-13 with under 90 seconds to go in the first. After a Tyler King steal, Taylor Vigar was fouled on a made lay up. After he missed the extra point, Andrew Adamson grabbed the rebound and put it back, putting the Apaches up 25-13, their biggest lead of the game at that point. Although Wabash never trailed, the Warriors fought back to within four points early in the fourth quarter. After trailing 5240 late in the third, the Warriors put together a 14-4 run, capped within the first 30 seconds of the fourth. Cameron Mygrant’s bucket set the score at 56-52 with 7:40 left in the game. According to Robbins, that’s when the Apaches “flipped a switch.” (continued on page 19)

Moore, teammate Cole Sellers (285) and Northfield’s Joseph Ross (195) each won TRC titles for Wabash County. (photo by J.D. Sparks)

In the fourth quarter, North Miami was breaking our press effectively and was in a rhythm, but we thought they were tired. And if they’re tired, let’s see if they can chase us. “We switched the tempo there effectively and that’s not to be taken for granted. We were pushing pushing pushing all game, and then it was time to make them go get us. That was our seniors showing they knew what the situation was. We have a good group of seniors.” The Apaches exploded to a 132 scoring streak and a 15-point, 69-54 lead with around four minutes to play. The cushion was enough for the Apaches as they went on to win, 81-67, and improve to 3-11 on the season. The Warriors fell to 1-11. “North Miami averages about 45 points a game, but we knew

they were going to score more than that if they played how we wanted them to,” Robbins said. “We have seniors who thrive in chaos and I think we lost sight of that. We don’t have Roger Davis and Breyton Nealis for a nice, half-court team like we thought we were going to. This is how our team knows how to play.” Apache senior Breyton Nealis, the TRC’s top scorer, led all players with 26 points and nine rebounds. Jordan Blair, Tyler Brewer and Adamson each added 11. Ethan Beech scored 19 for North Miami. Keith Rouch and Aasa Deardorf both chipped in 14. Wabash attempted 80 shots on the night and hit 28 for 35 percent shooting. North Miami was 23-of-50 for 46 percent.

State parks seek summer interns The DNR is looking to recruit 38 volunteers to work on trails this summer at four state parks for the Indiana Heritage Corps (IHC) program. IHC is an AmeriCorps program administered through the DNR Division of State Parks &

Reservoirs. IHC volunteers receive on-site housing, a living allowance of $340 per month, an education stipend ($1,468 before taxes) and hands-on experience, as well as a chance to earn college internship credit and live at a state park.

The state parks that will have IHC are Pokagon (in Angola), Fort Harrison (in Indianapolis), Brown County (in Nashville), and O’Bannon Woods (in Corydon). IHC members will clean, restore, and construct 25 cumulative miles of trail in the four parks.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led business in the country and helps girls build important life and leadership skills.

These skills help girls learn to be leaders – ultimately in their own lives and in our com-

munities. Girls are the main beneficiaries of all Girl Scout cookie activities, directly and indirectly. While learning valuable life skills and earning money for t heir troops, the girls decide how to spend that money to achieve their troop projects and goals. “We don’t know of any other youth-oriented activity where the girls themselves decide what to do with the money they earn,� Connie Frederick, product program manager said.

Larry Hoover retires from Chamber of Commerce after 15 years

By Ashley Flynn Larry Hoover served on the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors for 15 years before retiring in October 2012. Larry became involved in the Chamber in 1997 when his company, Quality Electric, was honored as Business of the Year. Over the years, Larry served on the Membership Committee, Annual

Dinner Committee and Expo Committee. “When I first got on the board, there was little involvement from other government agencies in the city,” Larry told The Paper of Wabash. “At some point everyone started to come together for the benefit of the city.” Since Larry’s been on the board, the Chamber has started Ag Day, which honors agriculture in 15727

The checks can be purchased from the Chamber, and they are only good for Chamber businesses, which keeps the money in Wabash County. The Chamber started member discount cards for Chamber businesses to receive discounts at other Chamber businesses. In the past 15 years, Larry said one of the Chamber’s biggest accomplishments was moving into the City Hall. His personal

He says he’s ready to retire from there, too, at any time now.

Larry plans on spending more time with his three children and nine grandchildren who all live in Wabash. He also would like to spend more time volunteering and getting involved in non-profit organizations. “It just feels good to volunteer and be able to support the community,” he said. Larry said he will mostly miss networking with business people and the board members. Larry has also had the pleasure of serving on the Heartland Career Board, Wabash Planning Commissioners Board, and Wabash City Zoning Board. “The support of customers, employees and the community made it possible for me to spend time on worthwhile causes,” Larry said.

CARS TRUCKS VANS and will haul away


Dividing time between their adult children (and grandchildren) and aging parents, many women these days are finding themselves as unpaid caretakers. Motivated by love, duty and a desire to preserve the family, they often do so without considering all of the options – many of which are close to home.

Marla Cummins, RN, Leader of Wabash-Miami Home Healthcare & Hospice, will discuss both home health and hospice services, and also help attendees sort through the often confusing topic of what Medicare will and will not cover. Whether you consider yourself part of the “Sandwich Generation” already, know you one day will be or if you are looking for options for yourself, you won’t want to miss this informative discussion. To make a reservation call 260.569.2216 or 800.346.2110, ext. 2216 by February 11th.
