Proudly Serving Wabash County Since 1977

by Brent Swan Throughout the

election cycle of 2010, all candidates expressed a desire to renew efforts at the Wabash County S h e r i f f ’ s Department to combat the local drug trade. With just three weeks in office as Wabash County Sheriff, Bob Land has already begun to make good on his campaign promise.

Two separate investigations in the first 16 days have resulted in the arrests of five individuals for a variety of drug-related offenses. Both cases were launched by the work of Wabash County Sheriff ’s Department personnel, and worked with the assistance of the Wabash City Drug Task Force

when needed. The first investigation, spearheaded by WCSD Sgt. Tyler Guenin, resulted in the Jan. 13 arrests of three Wabash residents, Randall W. Conliff, 28; Nathan T. Green, 20; and Matthew S. Lord, 23. The men were stopped on Falls Avenue in Wabash City at approximately 6:45

p.m. for heroin trafficking offenses. Prior to the arrests, Guenin had obtained information during a traffic stop that led authorities to believe the individuals were suspected to be returning from a trip to the Chicago area for the purchase of a large quantity of heroin. On Jan. 13,

Wabash City Police Officer Josh Prater located the vehicle on Falls Avenue and conducted a felony stop. As back-up assistance arrived, a quantity of heroin was immediately located on one of the suspects. Heroin was located eventually on all three individuals. Over three grams of (continued on page 5)

Higher wheat acreage a return to normal

Winter wheat is making a mini-comeback in Indiana, but how long that comeback lasts could be determined by weather and other crop opportunities, said Purdue University agricultural economist Chris Hurt. Numbers released Jan. 12 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture indicated Indiana farmers planted 430,000 acres of wheat in the fall. That total is significantly higher than the 250,000 acres planted in the fall of 2009, yet did not reach the state’s planted wheat acreage during fall 2008, when farmers planted 470,000 acres. “In Indiana we had a 72 percent increase in wheat acres seeded last fall,” Hurt said. “While that’s a very large amount over the previous year, the 430,000 acres is fairly close to what we’ve seen in Indiana in recent history. Acreage for the 2010 crop was very low both because of poor economic returns on wheat and conditions that were too wet to seed wheat in late 2009.” Wheat is Indiana’s

number three row crop by production, well behind corn and soybeans. Hoosier farmers produced just 13.8 million bushels of wheat in 2010, compared with 890 million bushels of corn and 258 million bushels of soybeans. Indiana farmers grow soft red winter wheat, which is used in cookies and pastries. The wheat is planted in the fall and harvested the following spring or early summer. Wheat production steadily declined in Indiana the last half of the 20th century. Through the mid1960s, the state’s farmers regularly harvested more than 1 million acres of wheat. Farmers haven’t planted 1 million acres of the golden grain since 1990. Conversely, Indiana farmers planted 5.9 million acres of corn and 5.3 million acres of soybeans in 2010. Helping fuel last fall’s renewed interest in wheat were better economics and favorable planting conditions, Hurt said. “The price of wheat escalated in the fall of 2010 with the poor

wheat production in Russia and Canada,” he said. “Secondly, conditions for planting wheat improved dramatically with the early harvest of corn and soybeans, and by fall helped producers get the crop planted in a timely manner.” Cash prices for wheat are hovering at $7 per bushel. Corn is trading at a cash price of about $6 a bushel, with soybeans about $13.50 a bushel. While $7 would seem an attractive price, wheat might not be able to compete with $6 corn, Hurt said. Farmers can produce far more bushels of corn per acre than wheat. There also are concerns about the quality of the current wheat crop. “The last crop condition report for the 2010 fall seeded wheat crop indicated that 25 percent of that crop was in poor or very poor condition,” Hurt said. “That raises the question of whether wheat stands will be strong enough to provide good yield opportunities for the 2011 harvest. “Those producers with wheat in poor

condition do have alternatives. They could tear up that wheat crop and plant corn or soybeans this spring. That’s not only an alternative but a very viable alternative economically, especially for those producers in northern Indiana counties where they usually cannot grow double-crop soybeans with a wheat crop.” Hurt said he isn’t recommending that farmers give up on poor wheat crops but to consider all options before spring planting. “Wheat is highpriced, but corn and soybeans are very high-priced,” he said. “This leads to the possibility that returns may be higher to tear up existing wheat and plant to single-crop corn or soybeans this spring.” The USDA reported that nearly 41 million acres of winter wheat was planted in the United States in the fall, up 10 percent from the year before. “That is 3.7 million more acres of winter wheat that reduces acres available for crops in much shorter supply such as corn,

survey of every May 2010 graduate indicates more than 91 percent already are employed, pursuing graduate study or engaged in full-time volunteer service. At least two-thirds (especially teachers) are working and studying in Indiana, helping to stem the Hoosier brain drain, reports Elizabeth Bushnell, director of Career Services at the independent liberal arts and sciences college. Manchester grads have a five-year average of 95 percent finding employment or entering graduate school within six months of receiving their diplomas, Bushnell said. Class of 2010 graduates were particularly successful in finding jobs in their chosen careers, especially teaching, accounting, finance and marketing/management majors. Five are serving in full-time volunteer roles stateside and abroad. Almost 19 percent of the 189-student class is enrolled in graduate school, including medical school, the seminary and law school. They are pursuing graduate degrees in communications, environment science, synthetic organic chemistry, public health, landscape architecture and sports administration and other areas, including athletic training at Manchester. “Manchester graduates are well-qualified for their fields through coursework, internship experiences and other real-world training, such as business simulations and practical projects,” said Bushnell, whose Office of Career Services offers job-search advice ranging from resume preparation to job interview rehearsals for current students as well as alumni. Manchester also offers an employment guarantee: a job or graduate school within six months of graduation or return for a full year, tuitionfree.

her lawsuit is rejected by a court. “This legislation has many positive ripple effects,” Banks said. “Not only will it protect Hoosiers from frivolous claims, but it may also improve the environment for doing business here and attract muchneeded professionals to our state.” Under Senator Banks’ proposal, state law would be changed in two ways: - In all civil actions, the court shall award attorney’s fees as part of the cost to the prevailing party. Previously, this was just an option for the court; Banks’ law would make it a mandate. - This law specifies the awarding of fees does not prevent a prevailing party from bringing an action against another party for abuse of process,

recover attorney fee costs once. The senator gave several examples his legislation intends to prevent: A prison inmate suing the state because laws he wanted implemented failed in the Indiana General Assembly; a Little League parent suing the coach because his son’s team lost too many games; a woman suing a fast-food restaurant because she spilled a cup of coffee and discovered it was hot. “Indiana needs to get tough on lawsuits like these,” Banks said. “By some accounts, Americans now spend more on tort litigation than they do on new cars.” If passed, Indiana could become the first state to implement “loser pays” legislation in the U.S.

Dear editor, We can’t thank everyone enough! As you remember, the animal shelter had a little beagle that was hit by a car, which resulted in a broken leg. It was broken in three places and needed a special vet that could work on him. It took some time and effort but he finally got there with the help of Lori Andrus. She volunteered to drive him to the vet and pick him up when he was ready to come back. Skippy went to a veterinarian in Anderson and got his leg worked on and should be walking on it in two weeks. He looks miserable, but thanks to all the

her lawsuit is rejected by a court. “This legislation has many positive ripple effects,” Banks said. “Not only will it protect Hoosiers from frivolous claims, but it may also improve the environment for doing business here and attract muchneeded professionals to our state.” Under Senator Banks’ proposal, state law would be changed in two ways: - In all civil actions, the court shall award attorney’s fees as part of the cost to the prevailing party. Previously, this was just an option for the court; Banks’ law would make it a mandate. - This law specifies the awarding of fees does not prevent a prevailing party from bringing an action against another party for abuse of process,

recover attorney fee costs once. The senator gave several examples his legislation intends to prevent: A prison inmate suing the state because laws he wanted implemented failed in the Indiana General Assembly; a Little League parent suing the coach because his son’s team lost too many games; a woman suing a fast-food restaurant because she spilled a cup of coffee and discovered it was hot. “Indiana needs to get tough on lawsuits like these,” Banks said. “By some accounts, Americans now spend more on tort litigation than they do on new cars.” If passed, Indiana could become the first state to implement “loser pays” legislation in the U.S.

Dear editor, We can’t thank everyone enough! As you remember, the animal shelter had a little beagle that was hit by a car, which resulted in a broken leg. It was broken in three places and needed a special vet that could work on him. It took some time and effort but he finally got there with the help of Lori Andrus. She volunteered to drive him to the vet and pick him up when he was ready to come back. Skippy went to a veterinarian in Anderson and got his leg worked on and should be walking on it in two weeks. He looks miserable, but thanks to all the

friends who donated to help out with the vet bill, he will be using his leg again. We have a great community that has a love for animals and it shows. If it wasn’t for the community, our animals would be doing without a lot of things. Now they have more toys and treats, they have nice warm blankets to snuggle in and a lot of people who care. We were so happy to see Skippy when he got back and I think he was happy to see us. We missed him. He is the cutest little guy and deserved all of this treatment. We would like to start a fund for injured animals to help get them to a vet if needed. Thank you everyone for your help. Staff and Volunteers at Wabash Animal Shelter

Sheriff: Jail population should be going up

JAN. 19 WAS THE FIRST DAY OF CANDIDATE FILING for the May primary election. Pictured are: (from left) Wendy Frazier, Democratic candidate for Wabash clerk-treasurer; Kristie Bone, Republican candidate for Lagro clerk-treasurer; and Timothy Roberts, Republican candidate for Wabash City Court judge. (photo by Danielle Smith)

New sheriff increases drug enforcement efforts continued from front page heroin was recovered during the arrest as well as marijuana. The case also involved a residence on Ferry Street, Wabash, where Debra Downing, 42, was later arrested for drug-related charges. According to authorities, several more arrests are expected as a result of this investigation. The second investigation was led by WCSD Deputy Dustin Hurst, who received information on Jan. 16 at approximately 2:30 a.m., involving the manufacturing of methamphetamine at a residence in Laketon. This information, along with recent information that the Wabash City Drug Task Force had obtained, was used to secure a search warrant for the residence. At approximately 1 p.m. on Jan. 16, Deputy Hurst along with other members of the Wabash County Sheriff ’s De par tment, Wabash City Drug Task Force and North Manchester Police Department executed the search warrant on the residence located at 50 N. Main St., Laketon. During the search, officers located a quantity of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and sources or potential sources of chemi-

cals and precursors used in the manufacture of methamphetamine. Jarrett M. Bradley, 30, was taken into custody and incarcerated at the Wabash County Jail on charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of chemical precursors and maintaining a common nuisance. No bond has been set, pending formal charges. “I couldn’t be any happier with the way these two investigations went,� Land said, “and we’ll continue our efforts to keep these drugs off the streets. Both cases were initiated by traffic stops by my officers, and those officers saw each investigation through to the end.� Upon entering office Land immediately implement a policy he feels became critical during the drug investigations. “I implemented a policy that each deputy can work these kinds of cases from the start to the finish,� Land explained. “All of our officers are trained to do these type of investigations, and these two officers did a good job in obtaining the information, working the case and seeing it through to the end.� Throughout the i nve s t i g at i o n s, which included the Wabash City Police,

the Wabash City Drug Task Force, the Indiana State Police Clandestine Lab Team and the Wabash County S h e r i f f ’ s Department, Land said communication was vital. “We had ran surveillance all day on the three individuals after we had obtained information leading us to believe they would be coming back into Wabash,� Land said. “We enlisted the support of the Wabash City Police Department and the Drug Task Force to cover all the roads coming into town, and they ended up coming in on Officer Prater’s area.�

by Danielle Smith At the brief Jan. 24 meeting of the Wabash County Commissioners, Wabash County Sheriff Bob Land reported that 64 people are incarcerated at the Wabash County Jail. “That’s as low as it’s been for awhile,� Land said. “We have a couple projects in the works, the jail population should be going up.� Land also informed the commissioners that an inmate, who is eight months pregnant, was taken to the hospital then returned to the jail. He expects the county to be responsible for that bill. In the absence of Bob Brown, Keith Walters attended the meeting to represent Wabash County E m e r g e n c y Management Agency. He informed the commissioners that County volunteer firemen had a busy weekend assisting at two structural fires and several vehicular slideoffs. He reported that they logged a minimum of 40 hours of volunteer work. Walters also presented information released from the United States Department of Agriculture declaring 52 Indiana counties have been in a drought. Producers that experienced loss due to the drought may be eligible for grants.

Dear editor, Vernon Manor Children’s Home would like to thank

Nancy J’s Fabrics and Heaven on Earth quilt shop for their recent donation to our home

of more than 100 beautifully hand sewn pillowcases. We would also like to thank Kay Horn; Annie Ross; Danielle Ross; Melanie Penn; Kaye Krom and daughter, Joan Renbarger; Julie Eckart; Mary Drooke; Nancy Moore; Sue Holmes; Ann Hartsough and Angelee Beery for their time and hard work in helping stitch the pillowcases.

ule to open in October 2011, despite a slight setback of a few days due to inclement weather. “All the tresses are up and over half of them are sheeted,” said J.R. Reed, director of maintenance for the home. “We’re expecting roofing and drywall to go up very soon.” Workers are currently installing initial plumbing and electrical components to allow for true walls to be raised, which is projected to start the last week in January, pending further inclement weather. The new addition, which will add nearly a third of floor space to the existing building, will house a new dining facility of 1,800 square feet.

It will also include space for a new family room that is nearly four times larger than the existing area. Along with the communal areas, the extension will consist of additional resident rooms. “With the addition, we will be accepting more residents, up to 119 from our current 81,” said Yvonne Vanosdel, RN and professional services consultant. The expansion is being built in the grassy area behind the primary building, where Vernon Manor’s annual car show is usually held. Plans for this spring’s car show are still in the discussion process. The surrounding community has high

hopes for the project. “The community is excited about the construction, jobs and related things,” Reed said. The home will be hiring on a

Nutrient record keeping proves important for all producers

Livestock producers large and small need to not only manage nutrients properly but also keep detailed records of their nutrient management practices, said Purdue Extension animal scientist Tamilee Nennich. Smaller producers often think nutrient management record keeping is necessary only for large produc-

ers. But Nennich says that’s not the case. “Every producer needs to have detailed records, especially regarding manure issues, because those records are the only proof of what’s been done,� she said. One example she gave is that of a producer who has applied manure and gets an unexpected heavy rain-

fall the next day, causing runoff. That farmer can prove there was no over-application only by keeping detailed records. Purdue Extension, the Indiana Soybean Alliance and the Indiana Corn Marketing Council have once again teamed up to make the process simpler for livestock producers by providing free nutrient management recordkeeping calendars. The calendars are designed for all species and provide inspection reminders and space for producers to write daily, weekly, monthly and annual records. Nennich said the calendar is designed so that if producers fill out most of what’s in it, they will have all of the major records they need for the year. Included are sections for recording rainfall and waterline inspections, and reminders to check lagoon marker

readings, inspect manure storage facilities for damage and make sure manure equipment is in good shape. The calendars also provide space to record the type and amount of crops harvested from each field so farmers can assess how much manure they need to apply to their fields. “The main goal of record keeping is to help calculate what’s been done and to help with planning for the future,� Nennich said. “Records help to make sure nutrients are properly managed and applied at the correct rates so they stay on the fields and are utilized by crops.� Before Feb. 15 of each year, permitted operations must provide an annual nutrient management report to the Indiana Department of Environmental Management. The calendar not only will house the records to make the report easier but also will help producers remember the important deadline. Even though the report is not a requirement for small, unpermitted operations, record keeping can keep those smaller farms from running into trouble should a problem arise. “While smaller producers might not carry a permit, they still need to manage their manure correctly because if they don’t, they too can be fined or required to get a permit,� Nennich said. Copies of the free calendar are available by contacting Nennich at 765-494-4823 or tnennich@purdue.edu.

The Access staff to submit weekly column

LEADERSHIP OF THE ACCESS will be submitting a weekly column to address issues facing teens today. Pictured are (from left) Laura Helm, assistant director; Liz Hicks, director; Mitch Figert, board member; and Angie Beauchamp, board member. Board members not present were Kim Perkins, Don Phillips, John Mason and Brent Dawes. (photo by Danielle Smith) by Danielle Smith Beginning with the Feb. 2 issue of The Paper, leadership of The Access will submit a weekly column dealing with issues that teens face today. The Access, 74 W. Canal St., is a nonprofit center that provides after school and weekend activities for the youth of Wabash. The after school program is held MondayFriday, 3:30 - 4:30 p.m., for ages 8-18; Bible study is held Wednesday, 7 - 8 p.m., for middle and high school students; and weekend activities are held Friday, 7 - 10 p.m., and Saturday, 6 - 9 p.m., for middle and high school students. They also host a probation class on Mondays in conjunction with Hands of Hope. The Access follows Wabash City School for vacations and cancellations. Snacks are provided during the after school program, and a meal is provided with Wednesday Bible study. A minimum of two trained volunteers are in attendance when The Access is open. There are video games and activities available for the kids. Liz Hicks, director of The Access, outlined some of their upcoming projects, which include a computer lab and study area on the second floor. “We already have the computers and the desks,� she explained. “We just need an electrician and flooring.� The staff and volunteers at The Access hope that the weekly column will be a way to reach youth that they are not yet reaching.

“The whole idea is to provide encouragement for the youth of the community whether they are actively involved with The Access or not,� Hicks said. The column will feature every day situations that teens face, incorporated into faith and encouragement. “Maybe it will lead them here, maybe it won’t, maybe it will lead them to a youth group or another church or maybe it will just give them what they need for that day,� Hicks said. On Friday nights at The Access the staff will have a trivia question about the column for that week. Those that answer the question will receive a prize, Hicks hopes this will encourage those that already attend The Access to read the column.

“It’s been great to see what we’ve done in the community,� said Mitch Figert, member of The Access board. “It’s not just about what happens inside the four walls, it’s what happens outside and this column is just another way to reach more people and more kids.� He went on to highlight the fact that what happens at The Access is important because the youth are the future leaders of Wabash. “I’m really excited about the energy and momentum that we’re experiencing at The Access,� said Angie Beauchamp, member of The Access board. All programming at The Access is free of charge to the youth. The Access is funded through donations and is a United Fund Agency.

four counts of child molesting

Recently, a month long criminal investigation by Indiana State Police Detective Bob Burgess resulted

in the arrest of Bryan Kelley Enders, 43, Rochester, on four counts of child molesting. Detective Burgess started an investigation after receiving information from the Miami County Division of the Indiana Department of Child Services that a 12-year-old girl had possibly been molested. Detective Burgess’ investigation revealed that Enders had allegedly molested the girl on several occa-

sions at a Miami County home, from 2003 until December 2010. Enders was arrested at his home after Detective Burgess served him with a Miami Circuit Court arrest warrant. Enders was incarcerated in the Miami County Jail with a surety bond of $162,000. He is charged with three counts of class A felony child molesting and one count of class C felony child molesting.

Charges filed in police action shooting

Recently, charges related to a Christmas morning police action shooting were filed against Zar Dontay Dyson, 34, Marion. An officer from the Marion Police Department served Dyson with a Grant County Superior Court I arrest warrant alleging four felony charges for intimidation, resisting law enforcement, pointing a firearm and unlawful use of body armor. He also faces two misdemeanor charges for operating a vehicle while intoxicated and failure to stop after an accident. An enhancement for habitual offender status has also been filed against Dyson. The warrant was served at Parkview Hospital, Fort Wayne, where Dyson is recovering from bullet wounds. He had a $30,000 cash bond, which was modified to a recognizance bond. The bond was modified due to his medical condition and the fact that the Grant County Sheriff ’s Department is unable to provide the medical care needed by Dyson. The investigation by Indiana State Police Detective Mike Tarrh revealed that at approximately 3:33 a.m. on Christmas morning, officers from the Marion Police Department responded to a reported fight at R and D Bar on 15th and McClure streets in Marion. As officers were approaching the bar, one officer witnessed a black Chevrolet Trailblazer, driven by Dyson, hit another vehicle and leave the bar parking lot. Officers attempted to initiate a traffic stop on the Chevrolet, but Dyson refused to stop. He led officers on an approximately fourminute pursuit. The chase came to an end when Dyson failed to negotiate a westbound turn and crashed into a road sign and a shrub on the northwest corner of the Home Avenue and Colonial Drive intersection. A Marion Police Officer, whose vehicle was northeast of Dyson’s vehicle, walked towards the Chevrolet. He ordered Dyson to display his hands. Instead, Dyson displayed a semi-automatic rifle. The first officer engaged Dyson with gunfire and took a position behind the Chevrolet. Two additional Marion Police Officers, whose police cars were positioned behind the Chevrolet, also engaged Dyson with gunfire as he exited the Trailblazer with the rifle pointed in their direction. Dyson was injured and neutralized from bullets fired by the three officers. He was transported by ambulance to Parkview Hospital. Dyson was neutralized before he was able to fire any rounds at the police officers. Further investigation revealed that Dyson was wearing a bulletproof vest during the incident. This is an ongoing investigation.

North Central Co-op provides 2011 energy outlook As most farmers know all too well, when grain prices are good, input costs are almost certain to follow. Customers of North Central Co-op learned last week that they can expect rising crude oil prices to impact their fuel costs in 2011. “The supplies of energy aren’t as tight as grain supplies, yet crude oil went over $92 per barrel yesterday,” said Blaine Duxbury, price risk manager for CountryMark. “That’s because those supplies are shrinking rather dramatically due to investors’ expectations of an improving world economy. So where are we headed? I believe chances are really good to hit $100 per barrel in 2011, possibly higher.” Duxbury was a featured presenter at a Kokomo meeting, one of ten co-hosted by North Central Co-op, a CountryMark mem-

ber cooperative. According to North Central Co-op sales and marketing manager Ron Pettet, the purpose of the meetings was to give tips and new information to NCC and CountryMark customers on how to “better manage your energy resources and be more profitable, whether you’re a farmer, school transportation official, or any one of our customers.” According to Duxbury, two of the biggest drivers of crude oil prices were China’s double-digit economic growth, and currency and equity movements in the U.S. He said that the U.S. dollar had generally been weak, which bodes well for commodity prices, including oil. However, weakness in the Euro caused by European Union debt worries, occasionally made the dollar stronger in comparison and

added to price volatility, which will be a factor in the foreseeable future. To manage this volatility, Duxbury recommended that fuel buyers look at available price risk management tools, such as forward contracting. “In my opinion, I think crude oil will trade in the $85 to $95 range during the first quarter of this year,” said Duxbury. “There doesn’t appear to be a big downside to this thing right now. As the volatility continues, my suggestion is to ‘buy the dips,’ even as small as $4 or $5, and don’t wait too long expecting it to go down further. If crude gets down to $85, I think we’re going to see a lot of contracting.” Duxbury said there are a number of benefits to contracting one’s fuel needs. “It’s not going to guarantee you’ll get the lowest price, but it will allow you to lock in a price based on your budget and turn a variable cost into a fixed cost,” said Duxbury. “This in turn allows you to predict your fuel costs for a seasonal period and tailor a program for your specific business needs.” He indicated that contracts could be easily arranged through North Central by calling a local NCC office. Customers may choose the fuel amount, a contract period between 1 to 12 months in the future, and the delivery schedule. Minimum quantity is 1,000 gallons. In an update on alternative fuels, CountryMark business development manager Mick Calvin told listeners that there were both encouraging signs

bio-based fuels. “Dramatically increased renewable fuel consumption is going to happen— that’s mandated,” said Calvin. “At CountryMark we’re committed to meeting the standard and the alternative fuel needs of our customers.” In a later presentation Calvin stressed the importance of getting the right lubricants for specific engine applications. He stated that while most oils today contain a combination of base oil and additives, “there are some impostors in the marketplace” that can actually do harm to today’s engines. To make his case, Calvin quoted from the label of a quart of an off-brand discount oil he’d recently purchased from a large, well-known retailer that stated on its label, “Contains no additives. Not suitable for use in gasoline-powered engines built after 1930. Use in more modern engines may cause unsatisfactory performance or equipment harm.” To avoid such mishaps, Calvin explained how to use the “API Donut” on oil container labels, which explains the properties of the oil according to American Petroleum Institute standards, and encouraged listeners to become familiar with it. Calvin also stressed the importance of protecting one’s investment by using highquality oil filters, saying that the quality of the filter was just as important as the quality of the oil. He also encouraged customers to use the CountryMark Total Analysis program for their lubricants to check on the conditions of their oil and engines. “We can tell you the

You can get a kit for less than $20 and it’s great insurance,” said Calvin. In a fuel storage update, NCC energy consultant Ron Hill told attendees that the EPA would be requiring implementation of a Spill Prevention Control and Counter measures (SPCC) plan by November 10, 2011. This would apply to above-ground storage tanks and its goal is to prevent spills from entering waterways. Plans are required for any combination of stored oil-related items that exceeds 1,320 gallons, including oil, oil products, diesel fuel, gasoline, lubricating oil, hydraulic oil, adjuvant oil, crop oil, vegetable oil, or animal fat. Hill said that there were two types of certifications, self certification and certifications prepared by a professional engineer. He stated that most farms or businesses with less

On the positive side were factors like: 2007’s Renewable Fuel Standard II, which mandates the displacement of 36 billion gallons of conventional fossil fuels with alternative fuels by 2022; the recent reinstatement of the $1 per gallon Biodiesel Federal Tax Incentive, which he said would make biodiesel-blended fuels very competitive conventional with diesel fuels; increasingly stringent emission standards, which alternative fuels can meet more effectively than conventional fuels; and advances in research and development to continue seeking new sources of alternative fuel from things like algae. However Calvin stated that of the 36 billion gallons of alternative fuels mandated by RFS2, the amount of corn-based ethanol will max out in 2015 at 15 billion gallons, with the incremental amounts coming primarily from cellulosic ethanol. Current ethanol infrastructure is not nearly capable of supplying the additional amount of ethanol needed. “Today we’re already at 12 billion barrels of production, yet the nation only has one facility capable of producing cellulosic ethanol,” said Calvin. “And while EPA approved the use of E15 in newer vehicles, gas station owners don’t want to take on the expense of adding new pumps and tanks, nor risk the liability of customers putting E15 into an unapproved vehicle.” Calvin stated that despite the challenges, fuel refiners like CountryMark would be ramping up their commitment to blending

than 10,000 gallons storage could probably self-certify unless they had had a reportable spill within the last two years. Hill said that plans were relatively easy to develop, and that North Central personnel would be happy to help customers with the process. He also said that information on creating plans could be found at http://www.epa.gov/e mergencies/docs/oil/ spcc/spccfarms.pdf. “The EPA is not out looking for violations of on-farm fuel storage, but if you have a spill and don’t have a plan in place, you could face a significant fine,” said Hill. “The important thing is to have a plan.” Later, NCC energy sales specialist Brad Swartzell discussed the benefits of using premium diesel fuels, including longer injector system life, decreased injector deposits, increased efficiencies, fewer emissions, improved startability, greater shelf life (years instead of months), and maintenance savings. Swartzell quoted from a Cummins service bulletin which stated that while that company’s diesel engines were capable of running on a wide variety of fuels, premium fuels were recommended for customers wanting maximum performance, efficiency, reliability, and lower maintenance costs. “We want to help you increase your profitability and efficiency,” said Swartzell. “Cheap fuel is expensive.”

Casas por Cristo works with pastors in Juarez to identify families in need. The families submit applications and are then placed on a waiting list until a mission team comes to build a home

for them. The family that McClary’s team built for was a young newlywed couple named Daisy and Roberto. “This particular family was a unique situation,” said McClary. “We built for a newlywed couple and it was actually the wife’s aunt and uncle that applied and they gave her the application as a wedding gift last July. It was really neat to see them start

off in a new place on a good foot.” McClary and his team flew into El Paso, Texas, on a Sunday and spent the night there, crossing the border into Mexico on Monday. The team slept on the sanctuary floor of a church located within a gated compound, due to the notorious violence associated with Juarez. “Casas por Cristo has been in operation since the early 90’s and

they haven’t had anything happen to any team members. Juarez is in the news for violence and drug issues, but in the last three years I haven’t seen the first hint of that,” McClary said. Casas por Cristo appointed a foreman to help organize and oversee the building project for the week, and the team completed the project on Thursday. Materials for the 11 x 22 foot home cost approximately $4,000. It contains two rooms and has a stucco exterior. The team runs basic electricity so occupants may operate a space heater during the winter. McClary’s team was able to purchase an extra ceiling fan, a stove, a refrigerator, paint and curtains with extra money they had raised. On Thursday afternoon, they held a small dedication service with the family’s minister and extended family in attendance where they presented the keys and a Spanish Bible to the couple. “The best way to describe it I’ve found is that it would be like someone showing up at your house and paying off your mortgage. It’s just a free gift to let them know that God loves them and that we’re willing to take time out of our schedules and money out of our pocketbooks to help them,” McClary said. In 2007, Casas por Cristo constructed over 400 homes for needy families. However, due to the media coverage of the escalating violence in Juarez, the number of mission teams has dropped dramatically. In 2010, only 200 homes were built.

“It’s understandable, but it’s saddening because there is an incredible need down there for this type of thing and also our experience has been nothing but positive when we’ve gone,” said McClary. Roberto and Daisy’s home was only the second Casas por Cristo home built in that area in the past two and a half years due to the intense violence in that area. Due to the decreasing numbers of mission teams traveling to Juarez, Bachelor Creek has committed to sending another team in the summer. Expenses for the building materials are covered by Bachelor Creek’s mission fund, but it costs $800 in airfare, hotel and food for each trip member. Members raise this money by sending letters of support to friends and family explaining the trip and asking for support. “Some people aren’t able to go, but they still want to be involved so they can give money and help send someone and actually be a part of the process even though they aren’t the ones swinging a hammer,” McClary explained. Anyone, 18 years or older and in good health, is welcome to attend the trip. “There are no prerequisites. Basically, if you have a willing heart and willing hands, we’ll take you,” McClary said. For more information or to get involved, speak to Aaron McClary at 260-5634109, or by e-mail, amcclary@bachelorcreek.com.

Animal Shelter is here to help Dear editor, The animal shelter is for controlling stray dogs and cats in our county. We also take in owned animals that people can no longer care for. This is the way we run here: if you bring a stray animal in here that you found, you can drop it off here at no charge from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. If the animal belongs to you, we ask for a donation to help care for the animal while it is in our care – that’s how we keep our doors open, DONATIONS!

When you bring in your own animal, and it is over seven years of age, it has to be in good health in order for us to put it up for adoption. If the animal is an older animal and not in good health, we will ask you to pay to have the animal humanely put to sleep. We are asking people to please quit dropping animals off along the side of the road, where they will sit and wait for you to return. We found a cute, young pit bull terrier in a dumpster – she

was so terrified and so skinny you could count every bone in her body.

That makes our job harder than it is already. We have to try and gain the little

girl’s trust and then nurse her back to health if she is not terminally ill. She had to have been thriving on her own for a while. Just keep us in mind if you need to get rid of your animal or if you find an animal that is just running loose. Our phone number is 563-3511 and our address is 810 Manchester Ave., Wabash. We are here to help the animals if at all possible. Do not let them get like this dog in the picture, that is more cruel than

Edward Jones receives recognition for 12th time The financialservices firm Edward Jones ranked number 11 on FORTUNE magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For 2011” list in its 12th appearance on the prestigious list, according to the Wabash County F i n a n c i a l Advisors. Edward Jones’ 12 FORTUNE rankings include

top 10 finishes for eight years and consecutive number one rankings in 2002 and 2003 and consecutive number two rankings in 2009 and 2010. To pick the 100 Best Companies to Work For, FORTUNE partners with the Great Place to Work Institute to conduct the most extensive employ-

ee survey in corporate America. A total of 311 companies participated in this year’s survey. Two-thirds of a company’s score is based on the results of the institute’s Trust Index survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. The survey asks questions related to their attitudes about management’s credibility, job satisfaction and camaraderie. The other third of the scoring is based on the company’s responses

to the institute’s Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, internal communications, training, recognition programs and diversity efforts. Edward Jones also ranked number two for largesized companies and number nine for work-life balance. The firm was the highestranking financial services firm on the list.

Parents express concerns regarding MSD “improvements� deficit we currently hold. Again we ask: How can the board justify taking on a new debt of this magnitude at this time? Are all these changes necessary at the same time? Why have there not been other options proposed? Let’s put the brakes on – some projects are needed now and some others in a few years, and some aren’t needed at all. Jim & Kathy Stefanatos, Shelly Myers, Troy & Toni McKillip, Katie Pratt, Ped & Lindsey Wilson, Laura Jacoby, Greg & Rhonda Dale, and Matt Whitesel

mentary sports, cut faculty pay, reduced faculty benefits, cut coaches’ pay at the high school by 25 percent, set back thermostats, took light bulbs out of the lights in classrooms and hallways, and required hallway lights to be turned off when possible. Bus drivers have been instructed to only warm their buses for five minutes in the morning and turn the bus off when waiting at the schools to load and unload students. These and many unmentioned efforts are being made to save the corporation money because of the budget cuts from the state last year and

how much this would change when the final plans are confirmed and budgets are exceeded. Again, we were told the blueprints on the web page were preliminary and conservative. At the meeting, the board members were rude, non-responsive, and frankly, many acted like they could have cared less about how the parents and tax-paying community felt. It was evident they did not feel the need to listen to any more input or suggestions because the decision was already made to go forward with the proposed plans. There are many improvements needed to maintain the current buildings, but the cosmetic changes to the high schools, the adding of walls and lowering of the ceilings at Metro North, and the expansion of the high school office areas, are completely unnecessary at this time. The education in these buildings is outstanding, even without the changes. Our students are learning in each environment that the MSD schools currently offer. Safety in the schools was a concern and reason of the board members. We thank them for worrying about our students’ safety, but there are other effective and cheap ways to keep our students as safe as possible. MSD dropped all ele-

Dear editor, There is a buzz going through the schools of the Metropolitan School District of Wabash County (MSD), that reconfiguration of the four elementary schools has been proposed for the 2010-11 school year, as Wabash City Schools and M a n c h e s t e r Community have done. Along with this, many major remodeling projects are in the plans for schools across the district. These improvements include new roofs for Northfield and Southwood high schools, new technology wiring and cables for all buildings, remodeling of the main office areas in both high schools, relocating the guidance offices and nurse clinics, adding on storage as well as adding boardrooms and restrooms in the main office areas. In addition to all the “improvements,â€? they are adding a new brick entrance to the east side of the high schools leading into the gym, adding a new brick façade to the front of the high schools and constructing walls in the pod areas at Metro North as well as lowering the ceilings. These “improvementsâ€? were estimated to cost between $5 and $7.7 million. All of these blueprints can be seen on the MSD of Wabash County home page, www.msdwc@k12.in.us. At the Dec. 14, 2010, board meeting held at Northfield High School, we were informed that these plans and dollar amounts were very preliminary. This was said many times as questions of the quality and necessity of these improvements were asked. We find the school board’s decision to carelessly spend our tax money on unnecessary improvements irresponsible. The assistant superintendent stated that the corporation was still looking at approximately a $700,000 deficit due to last year’s state budget cuts made by Dr. Tony Bennett. The state budgets for this year have not come out yet, but Dr. Weaver has said she is not anticipating any further cuts. Our questions are: What if there are major cuts made this year? Can taking on this amount of debt bankrupt the school system? Will this cause harder times for the small farms and households in this county? There are so many families within this community already struggling in this economy. As we sat at the meeting and studied the tax increases being displayed, we wondered

Norse wrap up TRC title, end Wildcats’ reign

by Shaun Tilghman On Jan. 22, wrestlers from all eight schools in the Three Rivers Conference (TRC) faced off at Northfield High School, with the hosting Norse taking the team title by just 7.5 points. The title, which is Northfield’s first since 1996, was the result of the Norse ending the Whitko Wildcats’ eightyear reign as TRCchamps by a score of 209.5-202. North Miami was third with 158.5, followed by Rochester (157), Southwood (144.5), Manchester (134.5), Tippecanoe Valley (122), and Wabash (101). All 13 of the Norse grapplers placed in the top five of their respective weight classes, but the title was still up for grabs with just two weight classes left in the day. Northfield took the lead (165.5-160) on a third place finish by 189-pounder Matt Shafer, then senior Scott Ammons pinned Whitko’s Logan Ison with 57 seconds left in the first period of the 215 match, securing the team title before the heavyweight match even took place. “It feels great being a three-time conference champ,” Ammons said, “you can’t get much better. [The team title] means a lot to us because we haven’t

won it since 1996. It’s just great that it happened in my senior year.” Northfield coach Gary Norman added, “It’s really big because we’ve had such a good year and we didn’t necessarily expect to do this well. We set our goals and we thought we set them high, but actually one of our goals was to get second in conference and now we end up getting first. Whitko is a little weaker this year than they have been in the past but they gave us a good run. For our guys this is really big – we placed everybody in the top five [of their weight class] that was here today.” Along with Ammons, junior Hunter Wells (145) and sophomore Joseph Ross (171) locked up individual titles. Wells won his third conference title in as many years with a 12-0 decision over Southwood’s Kyle

Dickey. “I’m glad to be able to win for the team and for another conference title for myself,” Wells explained. “It means a lot because they (Whitko) are always a really strong team and we were down a little bit in the tournament but we kept winning and it was nice coming out on top. It was pretty exciting because we haven’t really had a chance the last couple of years but this year we had a big chance.” Ross began the day as the third seed at 171 pounds, a weight class he was filling because senior Evan Huiras was gone taking the SATs. Ross, who has been juggled around in weight classes on other occasions as well, came through for his team with a 9-7 upset of Rochester’s Phillip Miller. “It feels good knowing that we did so well as a team,” Ross stated. “It means a lot to be

able to step in where I need to because I’m a team player. I knew it was going to be pretty close when it came time for my match, but I didn’t know it was going to be that close. It felt great being the third seed and beating the number one seed – I can’t really describe it.” Norman added, “All year if we’ve had somebody hurt we’ve been able to adjust the lineup. At the Rochester Super-8 we didn’t have a heavyweight so we bumped (Joseph) Ross up to 215 and we moved Scott (Ammons) to heavyweight and we came out champions. “We’ve had some middle weight issues and moved some guys around there as well. Spencer Miller [a sophomore] came in today and won his wrestle-off [earning fourth place] by beating some senior guys; meanwhile Joseph Ross steps in and ends up winning

Honeywell Foundation acquires Honeywell House

The Honeywell F o u n d a t i o n announced the recent transfer of ownership of the Honeywell House in Wabash. The House, previously owned by the Indiana U n i v e r s i t y Foundation, serves as a cultural house museum and offers a variety of programs with a focus on artistic, musical, and educational opportunities. The Honeywell House once served as the residence of Mrs. Mark C. Honeywell, a talented musician with a passion for the arts. Upon her passing in 1974, the House was gifted to the Indiana U n i v e r s i t y Foundation with the request that it would oversee the house as a cultural museum. Mrs. Honeywell’s

personal friend and IU Foundation President Herman B. Wells loyally honored her wishes, and the Foundation restored and successfully operated the house for more than 35 years, before gifting the property to the Honeywell Foundation in late 2010. John Wilhite, executive director for real estate at the IU Foundation, said that he and the Foundation had been “pleased and honored to maintain the legacy of Mrs. Honeywell” for so many years. “We know that the terrific staff and friends of Honeywell House and Honeywell Foundation will go on to even bigger and better things,” said Wilhite. The Honeywell

Foundation will honor Mrs. Honeywell’s wishes and will retain house operations as well as the Honeywell House board of directors, Honeywell House Manager David Ericsson, and Coordinator Mandy Gifford. “It’s the perfect fit,” said Honeywell House Board of Overseers President Susan Jones. “The house is an important part of Honeywell and Wabash history. We are pleased to be partners with the H o n e y w e l l Foundation and look forward to working with them to continue to carry out Mrs. Honeywell’s wishes for her home.” “The house is a great addition to our foundation,” said Bruce Ingraham,

Family of Dick Flora reaches out to community

STUDENTS AT LAFONTAINE ELEMENTARY accomplished an incredible goal before Christmas vacation. Each student earned at least one “Pat on the Back” slip during the first semester of school. To earn a “Pat on the Back” a student must be noticed exhibiting one of the Falcon 4 characteristics: safety, respect, responsibility or determination. The Falcon 4 is a new initiative this year in conjunction with our PBIS plan (Positive Behavior Intervention Support). To reward the students, the PTO purchased T-shirts for every student and faculty member. The shirts will be worn on various Fridays that are deemed a “Falcon Friday”. (photo provided)

Dear editor, We are writing to ask everyone for a special favor. On Jan. 30, our father, Dick Flora, will be celebrating his 90th birthday. We would appreciate it so much if people could send a letter, card or e-mail. Please share any special memories, funny

stories, or pictures that you may have. We will be including these in an album to give him on his special day. Please address cards or letters to: Pam Roberts, 447 Euclid St., Wabash, IN 46992. We would like to have them as soon as possible. If you wish to send an e-mail, send to: labhawkeye@frontier.com Each of us thanks you in advance for this special show of love for our Dad. Diana Minnick, Rick Flora, Kathy Jackson, and Pam Roberts

Historical Museum offers full day of history Jan. 27 The Wabash County Historical Museum will have a series of special events on Jan. 27, from noon until 3 p.m. Starting at noon, the History Hunters event will celebrate the 175th anniversary of this area becoming an Indiana county. But what exactly did that mean at the time? What was required to formally become a county in the state of Indiana? A short presentation by Heather Allen, the museum’s archivist,

will tell the story of the process the area went through to reach the milestone, what changed when it became a county, and what areas were affected. There will also be a trivia game, with prizes from all corners the county, for attendees. Questions will focus on early Wabash County history. At 1:30 pm, the museum will have a public showing of the recently-discovered 1937 film of Wabash City scenes. The 16mm film was

digitized and shows churches, schools, and many faces of 1937 Wabash. Please note that the film will be stopped periodically when audience members can identify places or people on the screen. The DVD is also available for purchase. These events will take place in the multi-purpose room at the Museum from noon to 3 p.m. The History Hunters events, sponsored by Peabody Retirement Community, are free for members or with

a paid daily admission. To reserve your spot, or for more information, call 260563-9070. Those attending are encouraged to bring a sack lunch to enjoy during the program.

He told me that of all his patients on Sutent, one other patient and myself are doing the best. He said that most all of the others are having the terrible side effects. He (the doctor) then said, “It is my educated opinion” that I would not die of cancer as long as I stay with the Sutent. He said my cancer has shrunk to the point that it is almost negligible and that I should not anticipate

THE FIRST ROANN COVERED BRIDGE FESTIVAL meeting was held at the town hall on Jan. 13. Carol Long and Donna Harman shared about some of the suggestions to improve your festival, and the great entertainment they saw at the Indiana State Festival Convention in November. One important factor the convention organizers suggested was to get sponsor letters mailed early and this will help to know the budget for your festival. The sponsor letter and levels to sponsor were reviewed at the meeting. Marsha Haffner, festival treasurer, will make labels, purchase envelopes and stamps so the letters will be ready to mail in

since we will be stuffing envelopes for mailing and planning for the tenderloin meal. We hope to have another “great” festival with that “Small-town spirit!” THE ROANN LIONS are once again sponsoring the Senior Citizen’s Valentine Banquet. More details to follow soon. Questions may be directed to Donna Harman at 765-833-5663. ROANN LIBRARY NEWS: The library currently has Indiana State tax forms IT40 and IT40 EZ available. We hope to receive a limited amount of Federal tax forms soon. Taxpayers may download Federal tax forms at IRS.gov, or Indiana Department of R e v e n u e , www.in.gov/dor/3489.htm. CONDOLENCES on the passing of Maxine Howard, 82, rural Roann. Maxine passed away on Jan. 14 at Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne. Our thoughts and prayers go

February. The return mailing date will be April 1. If you do not get a letter, but would like to sponsor the Roann festival, you may contact Donna at 765-833-5663. The festival committee will sponsor another Richvalley tenderloin meal as a fundraiser in the spring. This was a great fundraiser for the festival and a good way to get our community involved. We appreciated everyone who helped last year and the great turnout in support of the festival. The date for the event will be posted as soon as possible. It will be on a Saturday and we will serve 11 to 7 p.m. as before. We will have pre-ticket sales and a children’s price included for the meal. If you have new ideas for the festival, suggestions, or would like to volunteer to coordinate an event, please join us at our next meeting on Feb. 10. The February meeting will begin at 6 p.m.
