by Danielle Swan Anna Marie Farlow’s reign as 2012 Wabash County 4-H Fair Queen began July 8 when the crown was passed to her by 2011 Queen Lauren Wagoner. Farlow, a senior at Southwood Jr./Sr. High School and one of 26 contestants in the pageant, decided to participate in the Queen Pageant after watching her older sister serve on the Queen’s Court in previous years. “She always had the best time so I just wanted to have that opportunity,” Farlow said. During her nine years in 4-H, Farlow’s projects have included sewing, Fashion Revue, general crafts, needle crafts, foods, food preservation, scrapbooking and collections. Farlow says she looks forward to attending the livestock shows as part of her duties as Queen. “I usually don’t take animals so I didn’t ever get to be a part of that and now I get to be a part of it in a different way,” she said. She also looks forward to spending time with her court, which consists of: Miss Congeniality Kelli Siepker, graduate of Southwood, entering her freshman year at Ball State University; Third Runner-up Megan Frank, graduate of Northfield, entering her freshman year at Purdue University; Second Runner-up Kylie Echard, a junior at Northfield; and First-Runner-up Jenna Schmidt, graduate of Southwood, entering her freshman year at Purdue University. At Southwood, Farlow plays basketball and golf. She is a member of Student Congress, Crossroads Bank Junior Board of Directors and PEP. She is a member of history club and National Honor Society, and a company member at Wabash Valley Dance Theater. Following high school,

she plans to pursue a career in the medical field. Farlow was surprised when she was announced as the 2012 Wabash County 4-H Fair Queen. “I didn’t really expect anything this year, I was hoping for third runner-up. I was so shocked,” she said. Farlow’s prize package included: a tiara, an embroidered garment bag and an engraved pendant necklace from pageant sponsors; a handmade sash from Ciara and Lisa Keffaber; a bouquet from Manchester Green House; a rhinestone tiara pin from Bobbi Bates and Susi Stephan; a setting and 8x10 portrait from Werking Studio; an engraved 8x10 picture frame from Andrea Greer of Manchester Realty; Also, a $25 gift certificate from The Studio; a manicure gift certificate form Aimee Emrick of Get Nailed; a $32 gift certificate from Friermood Tire & Alignment; thank you cards and envelopes from Silver Creek Printing & Office Supply; a $50 gift certificate from Uptown Style; an engraved pen from Wabash Engraving; a watch from Myers & Son Jewelers; an embroidered tote bag from Key’s Embroidery; Also, Mary Kay samples from Serena (Thrush) Acker; a blanket from Beacon Credit Union; a gift bag from Crossroads Bank; a fleece jacket from First Farmers Bank and Trust; a t-shirt, thermal cup and beach towel from Wells Fargo Bank; a $10 gift certificate from Main View Inn; a clock from Miller Furniture; a parking pass from the Wabash County Fair Association; a CD from Joy Christian Bookstore; and a scholarship from the Former Queen’s Scholarship Contributors. Another highlight of the Queen Pageant was the presentation of a plaque of recognition to a 50-year 4-H volunteer, Duane Truss. Truss has served three generations of 4-Hers in various leadership capacities since 1962. “It has been really rewarding to see these kids grow up and become leaders in the community,” Truss said as he accepted the plaque. Attendees also heard from the 2012 Indiana State Fair Queen Erika Burghardt, who let them in on what would be happening at the State Fair this year, the Year of Dairy Cows. She announced that a shuttle service will transport State Fair attendees between the fairgrounds and Bankers Life Fieldhouse, where the headline concerts will take place. The 2012 Wabash County 4-H Fair Queen Pageant Committee consisted of Susi Stephan, Caley Fitch, Andrea Greer, Lisa Keffaber and Lauren Wagoner. Judges

2 Remember Safety Tips While Visiting County Fairs

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS), Indiana State Board of Animal Health (BOAH) and Indiana State Police

(ISP) remind all Hoosiers to remember basic safety tips to ensure that everyone enjoys their time at the county fair and other local festivals

prepare appropriately. Be aware of your surroundings and know where you will go if you need to seek shelter from an unexpected thunderstorm. Be sure to use sunscreen and sunglasses to protect yourself from harmful UV rays. Remember, even on overcast days UV rays are still powerful enough to burn skin so use sunscreen. On hot days, make sure you drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Wear closed toe

shoes like tennis shoes, not flip-flops or sandals, to protect your feet. Remember, if you see something, say something. If you see people or activities that seem suspicious, report your observations to the Indiana Intelligence Fusion Center at 877-226-1026. If you believe danger is imminent, contact local security or call 911. Safety Tips for Kids and Caregivers Teach kids to stay calm and stay put if they become separated from parents or other caregivers. Knowing what to do in this scary situation will help prevent a lost child from panicking, and help safety officials locate them faster. Keep a watchful eye on children. It’s easy for children and caregivers to become separated in large crowds. Have an established family meeting location where you will reconnect if separated. Check with county fair organizers and ask for ‘missing parent’ contact tags your children can wear with your name and cell phone number in case your child becomes separated. If you do become separated from your child, notify local security immediately. Animal Safety Tips Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer

after touching animals, and don’t consume any food inside of the barns. Watch out for animal feces on barn floors and aisle ways when walking or using strollers. Animals at the fair are in a noisy, crowded and unfamiliar environment, and may easily become dangerous if they are spooked or scared. Avoid running, yelling, talking loudly or making loud noises while in the animal barns. Never attempt to pet any animal at the fair without receiving explicit permission from the animal’s owner. Fire Safety Tips Be aware of Burn Bans. Dry weather makes it easier for fires to start so make sure all fires are extinguished and discigarettes pose of properly. Ensure all wires being used for fair exhibits are away from flammable materials such as cloth or hay. If camping, be aware of burn bans that may be in your county and what you are allowed/not allowed to burn. If parking on grass lots while attending the fair, avoid parking on tall dry grass. Park on mowed grass whenever possible. Use caution refilling generators. Exhaust can be very hot. Make sure the

Amusement Ride Safety Tips Don’t board a ride if you see broken parts, signs of improper maintenance, or an inattentive operator. Report your observations to the ride operator or call IDHS amusement ride hotline at 1-888-203-5020. Every ride should have a prominently displayed, current permit issued by IDHS. If the ride has no such permit, call the amusement ride hotline at 1-888-2035020. Read all posted rules and listen to instructions given by ride operators. Watch the ride with your child before boarding. Point out the operator and the entrance and exit locations prior to riding. Make sure they understand the instructions and warnings fully. Obey minimum height, age, and weight restrictions. Never sneak children onto rides if they are too small or too young. A smaller/younger child may not be physically or developmentally able to stay safely seated. If you can’t count on your child to stay seated with hands and feet inside, don’t let them ride. Keep all body parts (hands, arms, legs, long hair, etc.) inside the ride at all times. If you have long hair, keep it pulled up with a hat or hair tie. Always use the safety equipment provided (seat belt, shoulder harness, lap bar, etc.). Remain in the ride until it comes to a complete stop at the unloading point. If a ride stops temporarily due to mechanical failure or other reasons, stay seated and wait for an operator to give you further instructions. Know your physical conditions and limitations. If you suspect that your health could be at risk for any reason, or that you could aggravate a pre-existing condition of any kind, do not ride. Additional ride safety tips are available at

Purdue survey: Farmland purchases expected to continue

Many farmland investors in Indiana and surrounding Corn Belt states plan to continue buying despite some concerns that the market might not be able to sustain recent, rapid price increases, according to a Purdue University agricultural economics study. Farmland values have risen considerably in the past decade nationwide, especially throughout the Corn Belt, including Indiana. The most productive farmland in Indiana doubled from 2004 to 2011, increasing from an average of $3,278 per acre to $6,521. From 2010 to 2011 alone, Indiana farmland values jumped by 22.8 percent. “The rapid increases have led some people to speculate that the farmland market is in a bubble,” says Brent Gloy, professor of agricultural economics and director of Purdue’s Center for Commercial Agriculture, which conducted the survey designed to gauge atti-

tudes, beliefs and expectations of buyers. “Without knowing what investors really think of the market environment, we cannot adequately respond to that speculation. This study helps us answer questions about what’s driving farmland prices.” Nearly 250 farmers, farmland investors, agricultural lenders and agribusinesses responded to the survey, conducted in late February. Nearly half of the respondents said their operation was primarily in Indiana, with most of the remaining respondents owning farmland in surrounding Corn Belt states. Their median farmland ownership was 500 acres. Fifty-four percent of the respondents said they believed that the farmland market is in a bubble, although farmers with larger operations and more experience were less likely to be concerned about that than those with fewer acres and less

experience. Still, 74 percent said they planned to buy additional land in the next five years. Asked to consider an 80-acre tract of farmland with a normal production capacity of 165 bushels of corn per acre, what respondents estimated they would pay for it varied widely, with the average at $6,179 per acre. “Some people are very positive about future values, and some have concerns,” Gloy said. “Their wide range of possible prices is consistent with the current uncertainty surrounding the ultimate value of the farm. This variability of opinion creates the potential for large changes in farmland prices.” Sixty-five percent of the respondents felt that someone else would pay more for the farmland than what the respondents themselves felt it was worth. Nearly all of the respondents believed that the amount of farmland

for sale was less than normal or about the same as usual. Gloy said the findings indicate that the market is “still searching for equilibrium prices” after the dramatic crop price increases over the last decade. The limited amount of farmland for sale further complicates the situation. Market and economic conditions will determine where farmland values go in the future, but a key driver of current

farmland prices is the purchasing capacity of the people willing to pay the most for land, according to Gloy. “Until the supply of land offered to the market increases, it is likely that the people at the upper end of the demand curve with more optimistic views of farmland value will continue to push prices higher,” Gloy said. “How long this lasts will depend upon how these individuals’ expectations

Learn More Center receives matching challenge grant of $30,000

The Learn More Center is thrilled to announce a $30,000 matching challenge grant offer for 2012 by an anonymous donor. This grant will be awarded on a dollarfor-dollar matching basis through Dec. 31, 2012, and will help raise funds to operate Learn More Center, which provides literacy and adult basic education in Wabash County. “We are honored to receive this challenge grant for a fifth year, and are very appreciative to the anonymous donor who supports the work of the Learn More Center,” said Learn More Center President Sally Krouse. “This year’s grant is a little different,” says Director of Education Cynthia Johnson. “The anonymous donor has asked that a certain portion of the grant be from

brand new donors. “We are asking individuals who appreciate the Learn More Center to show their support by donating for the first time this year.” The US Census Bureau conducted a survey in 2010 that showed Wabash County losing more than 2,000 unskilled jobs, which leaves one in three residents not earning enough to be self-sufficient. Poverty has increased in the county by 30 percent since 2007, and over one fifth of our children live in households below the poverty line. “That’s why the work of the Learn More Center is necessary,” says Johnson. The Center, founded under the Lilly E n d o w m e n t Community Alliance to Promote Education (CAPE), is nationally accredited by

ProLiteracy and provides free, confidential adult literacy programs and services. This is including PreGED and GED instruction, adult basic education, computer literacy, English as a Second Language and post-secondary transitioning. In 2011 alone, the Learn More Center saw over 320 students, logged 11,000 hours of assisted learning, and celebrated 37 students who reached their education goal of obtaining a GED. Contributions that qualify for the match are those received for the operation of the center, without restrictions, and shall be exclusively from individuals, families, businesses, private foundations and trusts, and service and sectarian organizations. Individuals and businesses are encouraged to send or

deliver donations to the Learn More Center 603 Bond Street, P.O. Box 272, North Manchester, IN, 46962 to be included in the matching grant option, or to donate online by visiting www.lear The Learn More Center is a 501(c)(3) corporation; contributions are tax deductible to the maximum amount allowed by law. For additional information, please call 260982-6138. The Learn More Center is located at the Town Life Center in North Manchester and at the Wabash Alliance Church in Wabash. For hours and more information, call 982-6138 or visit Services are confidential and are no cost to students.

Good Luck, Wabash County 4-H Participants!

Youth Service Bureau of Wabash County, Inc. offers assistance to families to support youth by Danielle Swan Since 1965, there has been an organization in Wabash County that helps meet the needs of youth and families. What began as a Big Brothers/Big Sisters organization in 1965 has changed and expanded into what is now today known as Youth Service Bureau of Wabash County (YSB), an organization serving thousands of individuals. Donna Bogert has been at the helm of the organization for many years. “I started as a 20 hour per week employee for Big Brothers/Big Sisters when we had seven kids in the agency,” Bogert said. Now as executive director,

Bogert reports that the agency serves thousands of children through a variety of programming. YSB administers Wabash County’s Court Appointed Special Advocate Program (CASA). CASA, under the direction of Mary Ellen Clark, provides volunteer advocates for children who are abused, neglected or involved in custody disputes. CASA volunteers, who are appointed by the Wabash court system, investigate the situation then offer an objective recommendation to the court of what would be in the best interest of the child. YSB also facilitates a Community

Assistance Program (CAP). This program offers financial assistance to community members in need. This financial assistance can be used to help with rent, prescriptions, essential utilities and more. “Anything that is going to enhance the family and prevent them from being evicted or having utilities shut off,” Bogert said. “Our whole objective is to strengthen the family unit, which in turn will strengthen the child. You can serve kids, but how else can you help a child if they are on the streets?” CAP works with several other programs including NIPSCO Gift of Warmth,

NIPSCO Winter Warmth, Energy Assistance, Wabash Area Ministry Association and others. The past few years, they have been the recipients of Chili for Charity grants, which they apply toward the NIPSCO programs to assist families with gas bills. Any funds applied to these programs are matched by NIPSCO, so CAP is able to make the Chili for Charity grant go even further. YSB also serves to coordinate the community service aspect of Day Reporting, which is a program that students who are suspended from school are required to attend. Suspended students spend most of the day performing schoolwork in Day Reporting, but the also learn something about community involvement for a portion of the day. “We wanted the kids to learn something from it other than the schoolwork they are doing. In order to do that, they have to do two hours of community service. They go to Lighthouse Mission and sort clothes, they go to Vernon Manor and take the patients up and down the hallway or help with an activity, they go to Miller’s and help clean up from lunch. They are giving back to the nonprofits and learning ‘Wait a minute, there’s a big community out here

and I’ve really messed up,” Bogert said. She went on to say that some of the Day Reporting attendees have even gotten jobs from doing community service. YSB also offers a food pantry Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and L.I.F.T. (Learning is Fun Too), which provides free school supplies to children in need. L.I.F.T., which serves 300-400 children, has two big distribution days on the Monday and Tuesday before school starts, but many aren’t aware that they offer free supplies all year long. In conjunction with Operation Elf, the students receive replenished school supplies at Christmas. YSB also serves as the Wabash County arm of Salvation Army. All YSB assistance programs are provided to anyone who seeks help, no questions asked. “The hardest thing somebody has to do as a parent or a grandparent is to ask for help and I would rather over-serve somebody than not serve somebody who needed it. Some people wouldn’t come in if they had to provide all kinds of information. We don’t ask any questions,” Bogert said. As previously mentioned, YSB began as an affiliate of Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America. In fact, YSB was the oldest Big Brothers/Big

Sisters organization in Indiana. They chose to drop their affiliation with Big Brothers/Big Sisters when new regulations for the national organization would have cost approximately $25,000. However, they still offer a mentoring program that is exactly the same as Big Brothers/Big Sisters, minus the name. Bogert told The Paper that she could recite all of the national statistics that support the theory that mentoring is helpful to youth, but she prefers to share her personal experiences gleaned after more than 20 years of serving with a mentoring program. One specific experience was Bogert’s own daughter’s experience as a mentor. Her daughter began mentoring Flo at four years old. “Flo is the only one of her siblings to graduate from high school and to not have a child before she was married,” Bogert said. She attributes the success of mentoring to support. “Most of us have a family member we rely on. If we think back on our lives, there has always been that one person that was there for us, and you knew, no matter what, that they were going to be there. That’s what a mentor is to these kids.” YSB’s mentoring program has expanded to include proba-

tion mentoring, which is where troubled youth are courtordered into mentoring. “We’re really excited about probation mentoring because it is a way to reach kids before they become a resident of 79 West Main Street. We don’t want that. These are our kids and we want to let them know that Wabash County cares for them,” Bogert said. YSB is also proud to offer several other programs including Operation Elf, which provides Christmas gifts for more than 1,700 children; Parents as Teachers (PAT), which is a support program for families with children from birth until five years old; and a new home-based program which helps families work on issues to help prevent child abuse and neglect. “All of our programs are very preventative, that’s the whole objective behind what we do. We want to prevent juvenile delinquency, we want community referrals to be able to tell families where to turn and what to do and we want to give them the skills to be able to do that if they get into a stressful situation again,” Bogert said. YSB, a nonprofit organization, is funded in part by grants and the United Fund. They also have an ongoing fundraiser called Happy Confections where they sell sweets. They make chocolate bouquets, shower favors chocolates for any occasion and fudge. All of the candy is made right at the YSB office in Wabash. If you are in need of services or if you would like to support YSB by volunteering or donating, visit their office at 111 S. Wabash St., Wabash, or call 260-563-7727 or 260-563-5153. “I have been so blessed in this agency. It’s the community that has really pulled together to make this happen. I’ve seen the outpouring of help when someone needs it and it is there. It’s amazing how much people want to help because the money stays here and who knows who the next family in need will be,” Bogert conclud-

Comcast Awards $50,000 in Scholarships to Indiana High School Seniors

These students are our future leaders, and we hope these scholarships will help to power their dreams for success.” “Comcast has a vested interest in providing our youth with opportunities to excel and succeed in a highly competitive higher education landscape and job market,” said Tim Collins, Senior Vice President for Comcast’s Heartland Region, which includes Indiana. “We commend these students for their outstanding achievements, and wish them the best of luck in

their future endeavors.” The Comcast Leaders and A c h i e v e r s ® Scholarship Program provides one-time $1,000 scholarships to students who strive to achieve their potential, who are catalysts for positive change in their communities, who are involved in their schools, and who serve as models for their fellow students.

THANKS TO MARY LOU WILCOX for the new American flag that was put up on the Urbana flagpole on July 4. The flag that was there took a harsh beating during the severe windstorms that hit Urbana last week. Usually, Lion Michael Snell takes the flag down before a storm, but this storm came too fast to get the flag down. The July 4 holiday is a good time for anyone who flies an American flag to make sure it is in good condition, not faded or torn. It is also a good time to review the proper way to dispose of a wornout American Flag. The United States Flag code (Title 4, Chapter 1, Section 8) states, “The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.” If this is not possible, another option is “to give it to your local government or American Legion Post to dispose of.” The flag that was

removed from the Urbana flagpole was taken to the collection box on the front porch of the American Legion post on Market Street in Wabash. OLD URBANA SCHOOL WELL IS ONCE AGAIN PUMPING: The severe drought caused Urbana Lions members Ron Anderson and Max Chamberlain to investigate the possibility of using the old Urbana school well to water trees Lions members had planted on the Urbana school property. Water was also needed to water the ball field for the July 7 men’s softball tourney. On July 3, Max C h a m b e rl a i n removed cement and bricks that had been placed around the old school well. Donny Fleck and his crew came and opened the 140-foot well and found water at 20 feet. Donny Fleck bought and installed a new pump to replace the Lions donated. Now, Lions members no longer need to haul water to the ball field to water trees. THANK YOU to Donny Fleck and his crew. This is just another example of

people in the Urbana area donating their talents and working together to keep improving the Urbana School property. URBANA YOKE PARISH: Those serving during the 9:30 a.m. worship service in St. Peter’s church on July 15 are: W o r s h i p Leader–Brian Chamberlain; Liturgist–Carol Krom; Head Usher–John Eltzroth; Acolytes–Kassidy Shambaugh and Kenzie Thornsbury; N u r s e r y A t t e n d a n t – D aw n M a t t e r n ; Greeters–Carol Krom and Aliya Krom; Organ–Janene Dawes; Piano–Nancy Miller. The month of July has five Sundays and the Outreach Committee is asking for donations of peanut butter and jelly for the

IT’S BEEN REALLY HOT with record-breaking temperatures and I’ve been thinking about how people around here used to keep cool. LONG LAKE RESORT was started in 1926 by Mr. Bill Ulrey, which was known at the time as Ulrey’s Landing. One could get to the beach by going down the lane by the old barn. Mrs. Harry Swygart can remember her father and grandfather watering the trees in the park area by hand. It was 10 cents for

children and 15 cents for adults to swim at first. Some time later the price was 15 cents for children, those under schoolage free and adults were 25 cents. Later, the price was 25 cents for everyone with wee ones free. One could get season tickets that were $2.50 and $5. Later, season ticket prices were raised to $7. There was a bathhouse for a number of years with someone to handle the baskets. This was real nice if you didn’t forget your number. Those who wanted

to fish could rent a boat for 50 cents a day. There was a lunchroom where one could buy pop for 5 cents, a sandwich for 20 cents, and good caramel corn for 1020 cents. The lunchroom was closed and made into a cabin in 1946. Mr. Ulrey made his caramel corn using the smaller building. In 1936, Bert Mittering of Laketon made the large stone pillars. These were very nice as one could easily tell people where the drive was. For years the drive was gravel, but in 1960 Mr. Swygart had the drive blacktopped. In 1929, Mr. Ulrey had a toboggan put up and people came from miles to go down it. In 1956, it had to be taken down because insurance was too high. In the 30s, the free show was something a lot of people went to Long Lake on Sunday evening to enjoy.

to an end in the early 40s. Mr. Ulrey had a baseball diamond just north of the parking lot. For a number of years, many ball teams would come on Sunday afternoon and some good games were played. Mr. Ulrey died in 1946 and Mr. and Mrs. Harry Swygart then took over the resort and changed the name to Long Lake Resort. There were four cabins people could rent during the summer months. The grounds west of the house were made for trailers. These were only used during the summer. Later, more room was made for more trailers. Mr. and Mrs. Swygart continued to run the resort until 1990 when their girls took over. The resort has always been in the family and still is today. In 2005, the name was changed to Long Lake Campground, and wasn’t open to the public anymore. It is still know as Long Lake Resort by the locals. THE LAKETON/ PLEASANT TWP ASSOCIATION met on June 25 at the Pleasant Township Fire Station, where the committees for this year’s festival reported on the progress of their individual committees. The president also reported she received a letter on the new regulation for stages. There will be a meeting July 12 in Wabash to explain more. There will be someone going to this so they can comply with the new regulations.

P i t c h i n g Championship to be held in Knoxville, Tenn., from July 30 through August 11. Over 1,200 entrants will be competing on 46 sanctioned, temporary horseshoe courts, which will be set up in the Knoxville Convention Center for the two-week event.

onships in horseshoe pitching. Brian, who will be seeking his fourth title, boasts an entry average of 85.35 percent ringers, while Alan comes in with 89.01 percent. The top five women vying for their World title boast entry averages of 75 percent. This year’s elder division also has a high-percentage lineup with the top five boasting averages exceeding 78 percent. In the younger divisions, 67 boys and girls will be competing for spots in their own championship finals. The NHPA World Tournament has something for everyone, as evidenced by the age range represented in this year’s event. The youngest pitcher entered is 7year-old Katlein

Lamoth from Iowa. On the other side of the spectrum is Wichita, Kan., pitcher Tom Small who has marked up 93 birthdays.
