Wabash County crowns Lauren Wagoner as 50th annual 4-H Fair Queen by Shaun Tilghman On July 10, audience members arrived at the 4-H Fairgrounds Show Arena quite early – despite the heat – and waited eagerly for the moment when the 2011 Wabash County 4-H Fair Queen would be announced. Everyone enjoyed the many traditional activities and speeches of the night, but the excitement reached it’s climax when the special moment finally ar rived a n d Lauren

Wagoner, 18, North Manchester, was presented with the crown as Wabash County’s 50th 4-H Fair Queen. Shortly

before the announcement was made, Wagoner was also honored as this year’s Miss Congeniality. “I’m just really shocked and excited – I feel so blessed,” she said. “I was just happy when I made it on the court, so I wasn’t even thinking I’d get placed above [Miss but Congeniality] then to get queen is just amazing. “I wanted to be in the pageant because my aunt was in it a long time ago.

Wabash True Value announces expansion Wabash True Value Hardware / Just Ask Rental recently announced that they will expand their operation in the coming months. Plans are underway to occupy the space of the former Nowak’s Hallmark adjacent to their current location. Additionally, Wabash True Value will adopt the “Destination True Value” format after the remodel process is complete. The move, according to Brian Howenstine, owner of Wabash True Value, “will allow a greater assortment of merchandise and the increased space will allow us to arrange the store in a more modern man-

ner. Increased assortments in the core departments of plumbing, electrical, hardware, paint and lawn and garden will allow us to offer a greater depth of merchandise to appeal to our customers.” Although the actual remodel is two months away, construction and removal of the existing wall will take place in the coming weeks. Howenstine noted, “Although we will be in a period of transition for a couple of months, the end result will be dramatic and a much different shopping experience. The rental department will be relocated into the new area along with lawn and gar-

Parkview Hospice announces Roann Fireworks Committee thanks community need for volunteers

Parkview Home Health & Hospice is in need of volunteers to help hospice clients and their families with various tasks. Volunteers are needed in Huntington County. Volunteers typically donate one to four hours of their time per week. Volunteers are especially needed during weekdays to stay with patients so caregivers can rest or leave for appoint-

ments. Examples of volunteer duties include visiting with patients, sitting at a patient’s bedside, or offering companionship and support to patients and caregivers. Interested individuals must complete a training class before beginning volunteer opportunities. In addition, a new program, Vet to Vet, is being developed for veterans to be trained

as Parkview Hospice volunteers to assist other veterans who are Parkview Hospice patients. Also, Parkview Hospital Vigil Volunteers sit with patients, who are nearing the end of life, to support them and their loved ones. For more information or to register for the training classes, call 260-373-9896 or 1800-363-9977.

Manchester alumni gather for second reunion

They came from 19 states. The youngest was 18 and the oldest 96. These were former students of Central, Chester, Laketon and M a n c h e s t e r Community as they

congregated at Manchester High School, on June 25, for the Manchester Alumni 2nd Reunion. A total of over 400 were in attendance. The 3Rs (readin,

rithmetic) ritin, established their common ground and those in attendance once again participated in 3Rs (reconnection, recognition, reminiscing) during the social hours. Bonds are formed with fellow students and teachers in those days of preparation for adult life that are unique, special and never to be repeated. Recognition at this event was often dependent on the easy to read name badges after which there was a ready reconnection


and certainly reminiscing evident by the gales of laughter that echoed in the hall. Pat (Shanahan) Stackhouse was chosen for this year’s emcee and gave the welcome. She then introduced perhaps the youngest in attendance, Derek Self, who opened the program with a spectacular rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. It was heard in the audience that this young man should become North Manchester’s official singer of our National Anthem. The invocation offered by Viv Simmons preceded a delicious, efficiently served meal made possible by the expertise of Manchester High School food service personnel. Stackhouse, a 1959 Manchester High School graduate, opened her remarks with a question: “What is your favorite book?” Declaring hers to be Alice in Wonderland because “there’s no place like home” she related how she could close her eyes and visualize so many things from childhood that connected her back to this community and the people she holds dear. She admonished each class to stay connected for when the years pass by these

Brown believes God no longer blesses America Smith addresses candidate’s statement Dear editor, I feel the need to correct a comment attributed to Steve Priest in the Wabash Plain Dealer as he was interviewed after filing as an independent candidate for a seat on the North Manchester Town Council. Mr. Priest was quoted as saying “if you’re

not on the agenda, there’s no time to talk.” That is not true. Every agenda of the North Manchester Town Council has a place early in the meeting for “Visitor Comments.” At that time, anyone in the audience who wishes to speak to any item – be it already on the business part of the

agenda or not – is given time to speak. Many discussions have been held during that portion of each meeting and several positive ideas have been birthed, discussed, and brought to action due to that availability. Jim Smith North Manchester

Indiana conservation officers to sponsor free boater education course Indiana conservation officers will be instructing a boater education course on Aug. 9 and 10, 6 - 9 p.m., at the Wabash County REMC building, located at 350 Wedcor Avenue. This class is required for youth wishing to operate motorboats over 10 horsepower once they turn 15 years of age and have not yet obtained their Indiana driver’s license. The class, however, is not just for the youth as it is filled with invaluable information that even experienced boaters can benefit from. Some topics to be

covered include: new boating laws, alcohol and drug impairment and their effects on safe boating, proper use and legal requirements for the use of personal flotation devices, night time boat operation laws and issues, personal watercraft (PWC) laws and special concerns and many more. Attendance on both nights is required for certification. Parents are encouraged to attend the class with any students under the age of 12. Students must pre-register for the class by calling North Region Enforcement, at 765473-9722, by Aug. 5.

Dear editor, I am so very concerned about our wonderful country; it is going down hill fast. I must say our forefathers would turn over in their graves if they could see the mess our country is in now. They built this country on God’s principles. Now we are trying to take God out of the country. Children can’t pray in school, no prayer before ball games. They even are taking God out of the Pledge of Allegiance and The StarSpangled Banner. Not only are many taking God out of the country, but they are going openly against God’s word. Killing babies, okaying gay marriages when God says in the Bible in Romans 1:26-27 or I Corinthians 6:9-11 that homosexuality is wrong. We should make laws against such terrible acts. Instead, it is being in some taught schools as being an okay way of life. Are we smarter than God? I don’t think so and if we keep spitting in God’s face, believe me, we won’t win. We will be in serious trouble. (Genesis 19:4-5)

Just read the Old Testament where those who did not obey were put to death and bad countries took them over. This is the way our great country is going. I say we need brave representatives in our government to stand up and say enough is enough. We need to get back to the principles our forefathers started our country on. Yes, we are the land of the free, but to do good not bad, or murder and stealing would be okay also. So we need to stand up and be brave for our country’s sake before it is too late. We all need to write to our leaders and say stop killing babies and stop homosexuality and clean up the morals of our land, and put God back in our fair land. So we can truly be proud of it again. If we do this and call on God to cleanse our land He will restore it to be wonderful for our children and grandchildren. I truly pray for the land of the free (to do good) and the home of the brave. So God

North Manchester family discusses uncomfortable visit to new Family Video Dear editor, When Family Video opened a store in North Manchester I was excited. My four kids and I rode

our bikes to check out the new business and select a few kidfriendly movies for the weekend. I was disappointed to see

Come see what we have to offer at...



519 Bryan Ave., Wabash or call 260-563-8587 or TDD 1-800-743-3333 This institution is an equal opportunity provider and employer

the store had an “Adult” movie section. I had hoped a store with the word “Family” in it would be committed to promoting family values. Unfortunately, this is not the case. This store has instead chosen to include pornography as a part of their rental options. In addition to offering destructive and demeaning adult videos, the store layout put me in a very awkward situation with my kids. One of my daughters needed to go to the bathroom, so I asked a clerk where I could find it. She directed me to go through the door with the big letters “Adult” printed over a small window and that the bathroom was on the left. I hesitated and ques-

tioned what I had been told as I nearly took my eight-yearold daughter into the porn section to the left of the door because I thought it’s not surely through the door. The clerk then explained the door with “Adult” on it leads to the bathroom. As my daughter was in the bathroom, I realized my other three kids might venture down the back hallway to look for me. I nervously told my daughter to hurry up as I peered out the small window to ensure they didn’t accidentally get exposed to material unsuitable for them or anyone. When my kids and I got home from our uncomfortable visit to Family Video, my wife and I explained to our boys that we

were sad and disappointed the store had an Adult movie section and that we did not want to support that kind of business. My son Isaac decided he wanted to write a letter to the storeowner and put it in the newspaper also. The following is his letter, which inspired me to do the same: I want the movie store to not have adults watch the adult movies. They have bad words in the movies. I don’t want the parents to show the kids bad word movies. I don’t like that you buy those movies. God does not like it when people buy these movies. In the back of the movie store there really BAD are movies near the restroom. God does not want people to see the

horrible movies that you buy. When people watch them they show things about your body and violence we shouldn’t watch. They say mean words about God’s Word. There are a lot of family movies you should buy. Get rid of those movies in the backroom that have bad words and violence, and bad parts that should not be watched. And also the movies that say mean things. God does not like it. People should watch movies that are happy movies. Because I believe it is important to settle matters person-toperson, before taking it public, I shared my concerns with the store/regional managers, asking them to consider removing the Adult section

from their store. Although not all Family Video stores have adult rentals, it appears they plan to continue to offer this material in our community in North Manchester. My hope is that our town would be one of those family-friendly locations. If revenue is a concern, I’d rather pay for the “free” kids’ movies they offer than have pornography in the store. Unfortunately, until this section is removed, my family won’t be renting movies at Family Video and we certainly won’t be using their restroom. With the arrival of a red box at CVS, it looks like we now have another local option. Kurt and Isaac Stout

Value was started in 1982 as Coast-toCoast Hardware and occupied about 5,500 square feet of retail sales space. In 1991, the store was relocated to the current building and increased the selling area to approximately 8,000 square feet. The most recent expansion occurred in 1997 when the retail sales area grew again to its current size of 10,000 square feet. The expansion into the adjacent building this fall will set the sales area of Wabash True Value / Just Ask Rental at 13,500 square feet. “Although the economy has become a little soft in the last few years, we feel that it is in the best interest of our customers that we continue to move forward and offer more products to our customers for many years to come. Everyone at Wabash True Value thanks the community for their support through the years and feels that when the expansion is complete, the end result will be a much better shopping experience,” Howenstine concluded.

Wabash County crowns Lauren Wagoner... Continued from front page the basis of poise, personality, and the ability to converse. Judging was divided into three categories, with 50 points being awarded for the interview, 30 points for evening wear, and professional wear counting for 20 points. Rod Schram, Emcee for the evening, welcomed everyone to the pageant before introducing the 24 contestants for the group dance program, which was directed by Caley Fitch. The routine, titled “Dancing with Style”, involved music selected from several different genres and even included a guest appearance from 2010 Wabash County 4-H Queen Ciara Keffaber. “We went through tons of dance practices and it was a lot of work,” Wagoner stated, after the pageant. “The judging was in a church two weeks ago and it was pretty hot in there – not quite as bad as tonight, but similar conditions – and it was just a lot of work to get ready and make everything as good as it could be.” Schram then took time to recognize visiting queens, including 2011 Miami County 4-H Queen Kayla Reed and 2010 Indiana State Fair Queen Denae Pyle. Later in the program Schram went on to recognize former Wabash County 4-H Fair Queens in attendance. When Keffaber was brought back to the stage for her Farewell Address and Final Walk, she thanked many individuals for their support, especially her family and members of the Queen Pageant Committee. She also explained what a wonderful experience she has had representing

Wabash County and how excited she was to congratulate this year’s winner. the Before announcing of this year’s Miss Congeniality, Trisha Metzger took the stage to announce a new award. The Miss Congeniality Scholarship was started this year in honor of the late Maxine Howard, who, along with her husband Joe, had been vital to Wabash County and the 4-H Fair Queen Pageant for many years. Miss Congeniality was then awarded to Wagoner, who was congratulated by 2010 Miss Congeniality and fellow 2011 contestant Jentri Cripe. Schram continued by announcing Kaytlyn Eberly as Third Runner-Up, Jenna Schmidt as Second Runner-Up, and Lindzy Shepherd as First Runner-Up, before naming Wagoner as Queen. Wagoner will go on to represent Wabash County at the Indiana State Fair. She will also join the Wabash County 4-H Fair Queen Pageant Committee for 2012 and serve as an ambassador for various activities through the culmination of this year’s fair. “I’m looking forward to handing out ribbons to the younger 4-H’ers,” she added, “and just giving them the smiles and congratulations they deserve. I really hope to help them want to be in 4H even more.” Wagoner, daughter

of Mark and Julie Wagoner, is a 2011 graduate of Manchester High School and will be attending Purdue University in the fall. She has participated in 4-H for 10 years, and is a member of Laketon Cloverleaves, M a n c h e s t e r Challengers and Squires/Squirettes. She shows swine, cattle, poultry and rabbits, as well as taking projects in F o o d s , Scrapbooking, Gift W r a p p i n g , Consumer Clothing and Photography. She also had the Grand Champion in poultry and a State entry in Fair Photography. In high school, Wagoner participated in Manchester High School Advanced Choir for three years, FFA, National Honor Society, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Student Council, soccer, tennis, and basketball, while receiving many awards for her academic performance. Outside of school, she took classes at Terri Eckert School of Dance for seven years, and also participated in Liberty Mills Church of the Brethren youth group, Lifesavers, and Junior Achievement. Her hobbies include cooking, reading, playing sports, and hanging out with friends. While attending Purdue University, she plans to double major in dietetics and fitness, nutri-

Wagoner concluded, “The best part was definitely meeting all of the girls; they’re all such wonderful young ladies. Now it feels like everything I’ve been working toward has been fulfilled and I can finally just be happy.” Along with the title of 2011 Queen, Wagoner was awarded scholarship money contributed by the following former Wabash County 4-H Queens: Shirley (Wright) Anderson, 1962; Janet (Smith) Dawson, 1963; Mary Ann (Shellhammer) Stroeh, 1964; Nancy (Weekley) Busso, 1974; Debra Stouffer, 1976; Brenda (Runkel) Carver, 1979; Beth Ann (Cly) Givens, 1983; Shelley (Fleck) Ross, 1988; Amy (Hobbs) Howenstine, 1990; Bobbi (Leckrone) Bates, 1991; Kristina (Downey) Meyer, 1992; Carrie ( V a n o s d o l ) Vanalstine, 1994; Susi (Leckrone) Stephan, 1995; Kristen (Dale) Arnheim, 1996; Tracy (Baer) Trump, 1997; Kitty (Wagoner) Bishop, 1998; Brandy (Smith) Barrett, 1999; Serena (Thrush) Acker, 2000; Megan (Keffaber) Gregory, 2001; Ashley (Penrod) Grimes, 2002; Abbey Keffaber, 2005; Brianne (Dubuque) Finch, 2006; Hannah Klare, 2007; Cami Anne Givens, 2008;

Heard family thanks others for support Dear editor, Our family extends our sincere thanks to everyone for their continued prayers and support in the search for our loved one, Dorothy Heard. The

response we have received has been overwhelming and words can’t begin to express our appreciation. To all the police departments and agencies, our family is very

appreciative of the countless manhours that have been and continue to be served in the case. To our friends, neighbors, co-workers, and volunteers we thank you for all

the prayers, support and time you have provided to our family. The family was so grateful to receive the hot meals provided by friends and the Heartland Church in

Sharpsville and the supplies that were donated to the family through the collection held at the Tipton First Church of the Nazarene. It is hard to realize the amount of detergent,

food, toilet paper, drinks and hygiene products that you use when you bring a large family together in an emergency. Our family is fortunate to be a part of such caring communities.

Please keep our family in your prayers as we continue to search for our loved one. Thank you and God Bless. The Heard Family

Hesychia House thanks supporters Dear editor, The Board of the Hesychia House 24-7 Prayer House would like to extend a huge thank you to the Wabash community for a successful rummage sale fundraiser that took place on June 11 and 18.

Good Luck, Wabash County 4-H Participants!

It took many people to help make our fundraiser such a great success. To everyone who donated items and baked goods for the sale, to those who helped set up and tear down, to those who volunteered to assist dur-

ing the sale, and to everyone who shopped and made monetary donations, we say thank you. We appreciate you so much. All the money raised will go towards the operating expenses for the

prayer house, which is located at 433 N. Wabash St. Our rummage sale fundraiser is an annual event, so we hope to see everyone again next spring. We are also excited to share that our next fundraiser event will be a hog roast dinner held this fall. Board for the Hesychia House

The per series runs through 2016, the 100th anniversary of Indiana state parks. Another highlight is the cover article that previews September’s annual Indiana Seaplane Fly-In at Pokagon State Park.

American Legion Auxiliary Post #15 met June 21

SARA MCKITRICK, VILLAGE PANTRY STORE MANAGER, is determined to make a difference. On July 16, the Village Pantry, located at 204 Stitt St., Wabash, will host their second annual Riley Children’s Hospital benefit. The festivities will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will include BBQ ribs and chicken for attendees to enjoy, along with a rummage sale, raffles, kid’s activities, and a corn hole tournament. “The store in Indy always [is the top store] but I’m really hoping we can show them that a small store in Wabash can beat them,” McKitrick said. The goal was to raise $2,000 and they have already beaten that just by selling paper diamonds at the registers that they tape up in the store. (photo by Amanda Hoff)

On June 21, Lori presided Werling over the American Legion Auxiliary Post #15 meeting, which was held at the Post Home. Jean Leakey opened with a prayer. Twelve members were present. The May 17 minutes were read and approved as amended. Marilou Mullett gave the treasurer’s report on behalf of Mullett. Tammy Mullett further gave a report regarding the recent Poppy Sales. Marla

I enjoy working with children and I love to see the residents’ faces light up when the children come over to visit them! With our Intergenerational program, I hope that the children learn to respect and gain important knowledge from our resident friends at Peabody R e t i r e m e n t Community and that the residents will learn to appreciate the children’s enthusiasm, joy and laughter. Together may they each grow and

learn about Christ’s love for the world!” In addition, the Peabody approach to retirement living isn’t just different. It’s all about making a difference in the lives of the entire extended family. Every day residents and their family members enjoy a peace of mind and a security knowing that Peabody’s continuum of health care services is available if ever needed.

COMMUNITY PARTY at Roann to kick off Vacation Bible School (VBS). There will be a hot dog roast and dinner as part of the Roann Church of the Brethren’s VBS kickoff celebration on July 24 at 6 p.m. The event is open to the entire Roann community and is free.

THE LAKETON TORNADO SIREN is not working. You can get tornado updates on your phone by calling 1800- 566-9780 to get set up. This is CODE RED ALERT. They will then call you on your phone with tornado updates. There is no charge for this. SOME MORE LAKETON HISTORY: The oldest frame business building is believed to have been built in 1872 for Robert Thompson. He had a grocery store in it for many years. It was a twostory building and could also have a business in the upstairs. In 1881, the “Laketon Free Press” newspaper was printed upstairs. In 1897, the building was sold to M. J. Ulsh. He had a business across the street at that time and moved it to the corner. It then became known as the M. J. Ulsh Building. During the time he owned the building the post office was also located there. When he retired in


There will be an inflatable bouncycastle for the kids, as well as other games and activities for the entire family. “We wanted to kick off Vacation Bible School week with an entire community party,” said Fred Musselman, of the church’s evangelism and outreach committee. “This is the first time we’ve tried this, so we hope there’s a good turnout for it.” The invocation for the food will be at 6 p.m., and dining will last until supplies run out. On July 25, at 6 p.m., VBS officially starts at the Roann Church of the Brethren, located at 515 Chippewa, with four days of chil-

dren’s ministry. “We’ve always had good participation in our VBS, so we thought we’d start things with a community get-together,” Musselman said. “It’s free, and it’s a chance for the people in the community to get to know us a little bit.” VBS will be held July 25-29, from 6 to 8:30 p.m., for ages three through sixth grade. For more information call Roann Church of the Brethren at 765-8339931. THE STOCKDALE MILL will be open every Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. through October. Visitors will have to take River Road around the back way, due to the bridge

being out. There will also be extended hours during the Roann Covered Bridge Festival, Sept. 8-11. R O A N N LIBRARY NEWS: The library encourages their readers to continue on in their summer reading goals. The end of Summer Reading party will be held on Aug. 6 at 10 a.m. Magician Jim Snapp will be performing at the party. All book logs and materials must be returned by Aug. 5. The Community Project for our Summer Reading participants is We Can Read, a canned food drive on behalf of the Roann Food Pantry. The public is also invited

1930, he sold the building to Mrs. Joseph West. Her daughter and son-inlaw operated an ice cream parlor and confectionery establishment with pool tables in the back. In 1940, the store was closed and the building stood empty for a time. In 1948, the Hunter-Walton Egg Exchange rented the lower part. They paid cash for eggs (no waiting for the check in the mail). In 1951, Max Lutz and Don Price took over the Egg Exchange and operated the business until 1967 when due to poor health and changing times the Egg Exchange was closed. For many years the building stood empty but it was still considered a landmark of the town. The building has since been torn down and there is just an empty lot where so much of Laketon history was

made. I WOULD LIKE TO THANK everyone who participated in the Community Garage Sales and everyone who came out to see what we had. It was very successful and we may do it again next year! ON JULY 14, the Laketon American Legion is sponsoring an all-you-can-eat fish fry from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Laketon American Legion. Carryout will be available.

Ivy Tech, Learn More Center partnering to offer Ivy Track review workshops Ivy Tech and the Learn More Center are partnering to help new students cut down on the time it takes to get a degree by offering the Ivy Track Program. The free, three-day program will be offered in July and August in both Wabash and North Manchester

and could save Wabash County Ivy Tech students hundreds of dollars in tuition. Many students need refresher classes in reading, writing, and math to get their skills up to the level needed for collegelevel coursework. The new Ivy Track

Program will use the same successful formula for college preparation that the Learn More Center has used to help Wabash County residents prepare for and pass the GED test – intensive workshops followed by the development of individualized academic plans and tutoring. In addition, students will receive training specifically geared to help them improve their placement test scores. By reviewing basic English and math

concepts, students often score much higher on the college’s assessment evaluation, allowing them to skip the “refresher” courses that otherwise would have been required to start college-level coursework. For every refresher class at Ivy Tech that a new student doesn’t have to take, they will save more than $400 in tuition and books, not to mention a semester’s worth of time. New students who have already registered for the fall

semester at Ivy Tech are welcome to participate, and can retest to find out if they can skip ahead to higherlevel courses. Ivy Track will be offered twice this summer in both Wabash and North Manchester. In Wabash, the two workshops will be held at the Wabash Alliance Church, 1200 Cass St., from 4 to 8 p.m. on July 18, 19 and 26, and again on Aug. 2, 4 and 9. To register for an Ivy Track workshop in Wabash, call 260-563-5737.

The North Manchester workshops will be held at the Learn More Center, located at 603 Bond Street. The first North Manchester workshop is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on July 18, 19 and 26. Information for the second workshop will be announced at a later date. To register for an Ivy Track workin North shop Manchester, call 260982-6138.

Insect control proves essential in livestock production

Fly season is in full swing, and a Purdue Extension entomologist says insect control is essential as these pests can lead to disease and decreased growth rates in livestock. Insects can be problematic in both pasture and confinement settings, said Ralph Williams, professor of entomology at Purdue. Cattle and poultry are especially vulnerable. “Sometimes we forget that when we are irritated by mosquitoes, we can go inside,” he said. “Livestock are out there all the time, so insect pests are more than just a nuisance.” Pastured cattle fight face flies, which can transmit pink eye, and horn flies, a biting fly that results in reduced weight gain and feed efficiency – and ultimately economic loss. Within confinement operations, stable flies are a source of a direct irritation

to cattle and also can cause financial loss. “In confinement, it’s important to reduce breeding sites for flies by focusing on manure removal and waste management,” Williams said. “In pasture situations, insecticide ear tags provide one of the best methods of fly control. Ear tags contain various chemical compounds and are typically hung in both of the animal’s ears throughout the fly season.” According to Williams, the pyrethroid tags are the best solution for face flies, but horn

flies are resistant to its effects. A recent product, abamectin, and Warrior, a formulation with two organophosphatebased insecticides, are effective for both species. With the wet spring, other insects that thrive in excess water, such as biting midges and mosquitoes, could also be problematic this year. Midges can spread E p i z o o t i c Hemorrhagic Disease in ruminants, and mosquitoes carry diseases for multiple animal species. Large animals are not the only species affected by insect

pests. Poultry confinement operations battle flies year-round as houseflies breed in fresh accumulated waste. “In addition to being an issue for the farmer, house flies can also become a nuisance pest for operations in non-farming communities,” Williams said. “To keep in line with regulations, poultry producers really have to keep on top of pest control.” For all species, Williams said that facility sanitation is the first step to controlling flies and other insects.

Indiana University Bloomington announces Cox Scholars Jesse and Beulah Cox Scholarships have been awarded to 63 first-year and returning students at Indiana University Bloomington, including the first recipients of Cox Engagement, Access and Exploratory scholarships, new awards that were created this year. The program, creat-

ed with $92 million in gifts to the university from the late Jesse H. Cox and Beulah Chanley Cox, Indianapolis, provide opportunities for hard-working students to meet the full cost of attending IU through a combination of scholarships and part-time jobs or service activities. The scholarships

are awarded to Indiana residents who are academically strong and have demonstrated financial need. They provide up to 75 percent of the cost of attending IU Bloomington, with students expected to earn the additional 25 percent through work or service. “The addition of

Cox Engagement, Access and Exploratory scholarships will enable the extraordinary generosity of Jesse and Beulah Cox to touch even more IU Bloomington students,” said IU Bloomington Provost and Executive Vice President Karen Hanson. “Along with the continued Cox

Legacy and Research Scholarships, these awards will put an Indiana University education within reach of gifted students who might otherwise have struggled to pay for college. We are delighted to recognize these 63 exceptionally talented, dedicated, and hardworking students.” “The legacy that

Jesse and Beulah Cox have created at Indiana University through their vision for student scholarships is truly extraordinary,” added Sarah Booher, director of the IU Bloomington Office of Scholarships. “This fall 63 additional students will benefit from their generosity, making their dream of attending IU a reality without worry of financial hardship.” IU Bloomington this year awarded 10 Cox Engagement Scholarships, 10 Cox E x p l o r a t o r y Scholarships, one Cox Access Scholarship, 15 Cox Legacy Scholarships and 27 Cox Research Scholarships. The scholarships are renewable for up to three years for current students and for up to four years for incoming students. To qualify, students must maintain a grade point average of 3.0 or better. Mackenzie Wright, Wabash, was the recipient of a Cox Scholarship. In addition to finan-

cial support, the Cox Scholars programs enable students to form cohesive groups focused on mutual support. Scholars take part in special programming to reinforce the Cox legacy, such as a spring service day at Coxhall Gardens in Hamilton County and opportunities to hear and understand the life stories and accomplishments of Jesse and Beulah Cox. Jesse Cox and Beulah Cox started J.H. Cox Manufacturing Co., a wholesale venetian blind company. They then purchased a small bankrupt company and started the Aero Blind and Drapery Co., which they turned into the leading window treatment company in the upper Midwest. They also developed businesses in agriculture and commercial real estate in Monroe, Boone, Hamilton and Putnam counties. Beulah Cox died in 1999 and Jesse Cox died in 2008.

Ivy Tech presents 32nd annual instructional excellence award to Kokomo professor

A Kokomo assistant professor and program chair of paramedic science has been selected by Ivy Tech Community College as this year’s recipient of the Glenn W. Sample Award for Excellence in Instruction. The award is Ivy Tech’s highest honor for a faculty member. The selection of John Chaflin was announced at the close of a recent twoday event for recipients of the College’s annual President’s Awards to outstanding faculty. From that field of 14 regional winners, one is chosen for the Glenn Sample Award. The honor includes a $1,000 stipend for instructional equipment and a $5,000 personal development grant. After joining Ivy Tech in 2005, Chaflin

created a New Student Orientations Manual for students entering his program in an effort to address student misperceptions about the field of paramedic science. Chaflin has also designed and implemented a paramedic certificate program at Riverview Hospital. The collaborative effort led to paramedic certifications for 14 students. “Teaching paramedic science is so much more than the science. Our classrooms aren’t just about didactic teaching. It’s about the students and working with them to see the connection between coursework and fieldwork, where they will realize their potential as medical professionals. It’s about helping them to make a connection with realworld learning,” said

Chaflin. “As I work to create meaningful learning experiences for and with my students, I share Einstein’s belief that, I never teach my pupils. I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.” Chaflin holds a of Arts Master’s degree in Adult Education and a Arts Bachelor of degree in General Studies. He also holds Associate two Degrees in Paramedic Science and Industrial Electrical Technology. The Sample Award is named in honor of Ivy Tech’s fourth president, who also had served on its first board of trustees, cofounded Ivy Tech Foundation, and was the Foundation board’s first chairman. Ivy Tech estab-

John Chaflin lished the award shortly after Sample’s death in 1980. Ivy Tech Community College is the state’s largest public post-secondary institution and the nation’s largest singly-accredited statewide community college system with more than 200,000 students enrolled annually. It is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association.

Laura Merriman awarded fine arts scholarship Laura Merriman, the daughter of David and Paula Marriman, has been awarded a State Tri Kappa Fine Arts Scholarship for $1,000. This award is based on academic excellence in a Fine Arts major, future goals, work and volunteer experience in her field, references and extra-curricular activities. Laura is finishing her junior year at Ball State University, where she is pursuing a bachelor’s

degree in Fine Arts with a major in V i s u a l Communications and a minor in L a n d s c a p e Architecture. While at Ball State, Laura has participated in the spring 2010 Ball State Concert Band, White River CleanUp in Muncie’s local river, BSU Fine Arts League, and AIGA Design League. Other BSU accomplishments include Dean’s List, National Society for Collegiate Scholars,

and an art piece accepted into BSU Students Art Show 2010. After earning a bachelor’s degree, Laura will possibly further her education with graduate school. One of Laura’s professors commented that she is able to express herself in an articulate and intelligent fashion. She is also exceedingly motivated and a very talented student. Laura is a graduate of Wabash High

Laura Merriman School. The Wabash Alpha Epsilon Chapter of Tri Kappa was Laura’s sponsor.

Cooling system may build eggs’ natural defenses against salmonella Once eggs are laid, their natural resistance to pathogens begins to wear down, a Purdue but University scientist believes he knows how to rearm those defenses. Kevin Keener, an associate professor of food science, created a process for rapidly cooling eggs that is designed to inhibit the growth of bacteria such as salmonella. The same cooling process would saturate the inside of an egg with carbon dioxide and alter pH levels, which he has found are connected to the activity of an enzyme called

THE NOBLE HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 1961 gathered in Wabash on June 24 to celebrate their 50th reunion. Class members first enjoyed a tour of W. C. Mills Elementary School before assembling at the REMC Building for a meal catered by All Occasions. Pictured are (from left): front row, Julia Keaffaber, Vicky Boardman Leonard, Janet Mattern Johnson, Patty Janeway Hostetler, Shirley Haupt Kessler, Lois Ridenour, Katherine Black, Georgia Proffitt Engelman, Bonita Manning Kirtlan; middle row, Melanie Custer Weisman, Sharon Reed West, Robert Summers, Don Cole, Sandy Sommers Smith, Tommy Behny, Larry Campbell, Berti Graham Huffschmidt, Gene Janeway, Ken McKillip; back row, Mike Rogers, John West, Pat Scoby Waggoner, Joyce Winterrowd Peebles, John Lynch, Mike Ridgeway, Steves Haynes, Nancy Weiss Welch, Clifford Marsh, Steve Keffaber, Larry Landis, and Wayne Atkinson. The following class members were not in attendance: James Hashbarger, Judy Drumheller Shultz, Linda Cooksey Kirkpatrick, Jerry Lauer, David Schuster, Jay Linkenhelt, Allen Bitzell, Gurbuz Celeli, Pam Clark Little, Karen Frank Miller, Terry Foust, Richard Nicely, Shirley Panning Thompson, Marilyn Ridgeway Shin, and Carol Ternosky Kreighbaum.

lysozyme, which defends egg whites from bacteria. “This enzyme activity is directly related to the carbon dioxide and pH levels,” said Keener, whose results were published in the journal Poultry Science. “An increase in lysozyme would lead to increased safety in eggs.” Freshly laid eggs are saturated with carbon dioxide and have pH levels of about 7. Over time, the pH level rises to 9 and carbon dioxide escapes, Keener said. As that happens, lysozyme becomes less active. Keener saturated purified egg white lysozymes with carbon dioxide and tested different pH levels. He found that at both high and low pH levels, the addition of carbon dioxide would increase lysozyme activity by as much as 50 percent. The cooling process Keener developed would create the same conditions, he said. “When we cool the eggs, carbon dioxide is sucked inside the shell,” Keener said. “We’re able to resaturate the white of the egg with carbon dioxide, returning it to that original condition when the chicken laid it.” The additional lysozyme activity

would give eggs more time to self-eliminate harmful bacteria. Keener’s cooling technology uses carbon dioxide “snow” to rapidly lower the eggs’ temperature. Eggs are placed in a cooling chamber and carbon dioxide gas at about minus 110 degrees Fahrenheit is generated. The cold gas is circulated around the eggs and forms a thin layer of ice inside the eggshell. After treatment, the ice layer melts and quickly lowers an egg’s internal temperature to below 45 degrees Fahrenheit. The eggshell does not crack during this process because it can resist expansion from a thin ice layer. Keener said Food and Drug Administration studies show that if eggs were cooled and stored at 45 degrees or less within 12 hours of laying, there would be an estimated 100,000 fewer salmonella illnesses from eggs in the United States each year. Keener will continue to study the molecular changes that occur with egg cooling.
