Mize wins 2013 Wabash County Round Robin Showmanship

by Emily Armentrout Cole Mize took home the 2013 Wabash County Round Robin Showmanship this past Thursday. To win the Round Robin Showmanship, each showman, from the seven different animal groups, must show their skills in showing not only the species they normally show, but also all of the others. These include swine, veal, goat, sheep, dairy, horse and pony and beef. Mize was the beef Round Robin representative this year, as well as last year. “I thought I might have a chance tonight because I was in Round Robin last year. I felt like I did well last year, so I just felt like I had a good chance tonight,” said Mize. When asked what species he thought would be most difficult for him to show, Mize said it would be the horse and pony section. After showing all seven animals, his beginning hypothesis was correct. “I found horses most difficult because I have never really been around horses.” Mize, an eighth year 4-H member, said that winning Round Robin was high on the list of great moments from this year. Other great moments of the 2013 Wabash County Fair for him include winning Grand Champion Steer and showmanship.

The other showmanship representatives that showed along Mize were Alyssa Richter, representing the goat department; McKenna Dawes, representing the dairy department; Trent Bechtold, representing the sheep department; Noah Shoemaker, representing the veal department; Cale Dyson, representing the swine department; and Michelle Hendricks, representing the horse and pony department. To prepare for Round Robin, after showing beef for the majority of his 4-H career, Mize turned to friends and family for help. “I talked with friends who had shown in the other species and I looked to my parents for help with questions the judge might ask,” said Mize. The judge, Kyle Wood, asked the representatives questions during the showing of each animal group. Questions ranged from what type of breed of animal they were showing to the most important nutrient for animals. Wood commented that even if the representative didn’t always get the answer correct, sometimes confidence was the key. Confidence in their answers and confidence in their skills at showing each animal were what set certain representatives apart from the others. When Wood had decided the champi-

(photo by Emily Armentrout) on, he said he was going to shake the hand of the 2013 Round Robin Showmanship winner. As he walked towards Mize, a smile broke out when Mize had realized he had won. Mize has a couple years left in 4-H but he cannot participate in the Round Robin again as a participant, but like last year’s

winner and his good friend, Collin Tennant, he will be on hand to help out during next year’s competition. After receiving advice and coaching from his friends and family this year, Mize said, “I want to thank my parents, my family and my friends.”

Wabash Cannonball Chili for Charity announces organizations to receive funding Wabash Cannonball Chili for Charity is pleased to announce the non-profit organizations that will receive funding from this year’s Chili for Charity Cook-off. Twenty-eight applications were submitted for consideration and 10 were selected. The Wabash River Defenders, 85 Hope, Best of the Best, Wabash County Transit, FAME, Honeywell Center Educational Outreach Program, Paradise Spring Historical Park, Special Olympics of Wabash County, Wabash County Historical Museum, and The

Access will all benefit from the one-day fundraising event. “The selection process is the most difficult,” said Wade Weaver, executive committee member. “There are many qualified organizations serving the community that need funding. It is a tough decision every year.” Since the cook-off ’s inception, more than $300,000 has been granted to non-profit organizations serving Wabash County. This year will mark the 11th anniversary of the event, which will be held on Oct. 19, at Paradise Spring Historical Park with

Spring crop pests mild, but growers should scout for summer insects W E S T LAFAYETTE—Mild temperatures and moderate rainfall during corn and soybean planting created prime conditions for avoiding severe problems with spring pests, a Purdue Extension entomologist says. But that doesn’t mean growers should let their guard down when it comes to summer insects. Indiana’s two largest cash crops have not been affected by as many spring insects as in past years, partly because of the lack of extreme temperatures and rainfall once planting got underway. “The lack of spring insects is mostly a factor of the crops getting planted into conditions that were virtually ideal. Soils were mostly moist but not wet at planting, and we did not have extended cool and rainy conditions,” Christian Krupke said. Cool, wet spring weather can delay planting, causing the emergence of spring larvae to coincide with emerging crops. Under these condi-

tions, spring feeders reach the later larval stage—when most feeding occurs—as crops begin to grow. This can hurt developing crops by stunting or stopping growth as these insects use the plants as a primary food source. But while spring insects have not had a large presence in Indiana fields, Krupke said, farmers still need to be out scouting their crops for summer insects. “As we reach midsummer, ear feeders and root worms, as well as soybean aphids might come on the scene,” he said.

Common summerfeeding insects in Indiana corn include western corn rootworms and western bean cutworm in northern parts of the state. At high infestation levels, both can cause major yield reductions, but recent years have seen very low populations. Soybean aphids, one of Indiana’s most common and serious summer soybean pests, attacks the crop until September and can reduce yields by 10-15 percent but, again, no problems of this magnitude have been seen in at least four years.

Dear editor, On July 4, nearly 2,000 people enjoyed a spectacular 4th of July Celebration at M a n c h e s t e r University. As a North Manchester native and Manchester University student, I always enjoy seeing my community come together as one to celebrate the rich history of our great nation. This year’s celebration was especially memorable because I had the opportunity to coordinate the event for Manchester’s public relations department. Scores of volunteers shared the work, but special thanks go out to: M a n c h e s t e r University for underwriting the annual $5,000 fireworks gift to the community. Manchester’s facilities and dedicated employees working long hours on a holiday made the celebration possible. The North Manchester Fire Department for managing a fantastic fireworks display. The North Manchester Rotary for providing conces-

sions and sharing its proceeds with community programs. Beacon Credit Union for red, white and blue glow sticks. The Manchester Civic Band, MU baritone Jeremiah Sanders and World War II veteran Bart Corricelli for their patriotic performances. Morgan Peas, Jeri Kornegay, Chris Garber and Alexis Young for their help in coordinating the event. And especially, a huge thank you to the entire community for joining the party! North Manchester’s patriotic fervor was on full display at the event. Kyle Lahman North Manchester

Walk with a Doc on July 20 for a chance to win gift card At least 100 people are wanted on July 20 at the Y at 8 a.m. to participate in this month’s Walk with a Doc. This is a good way for your business to be seen at a community event wearing your logo or company shirts. Ford Meter Box sponsors this month’s WWAD. The walk starts at the Y and heads to the Riverwalk. The walk lasts 45-60 minutes, but people can walk as much or as little as they wish. The important thing is to walk. Just ten minutes of walking a day helps someone start a healthier lifestyle. Ten minutes can lead to twenty minutes, which will lead the person to thirty minutes or more of walking a day. Walking costs a person no membership fees. All walking costs is the effort.

Each walker who participates will be given a snack and bottled water provided by this month’s sponsor, Ford Meter Box. Also, any person who participates in three of this year’s walks will be entered in a drawing for a $25 Subway gift card sponsored by TAS Bike Shop.

organization, as well as 11 associate members, who are also eligible for benefits. Legislative committee chairperson Mary Jane Toepfer reported that the Representative Assembly met in Indianapolis on June 19. Barry Conrad introduced James Lund, the Area 3 Director. He indicated that Carol Grieser, from Goshen, is the new president. He also said that the state organization operated in the black last year, and that a firm has been hired to deal with computer problems and the legislative area. The 13th check is to be called a stipend.

Community service chairperson Juanita Rapp passed out forms for volunteer hours that will be due in Dec. The number of volunteer hours represented a total of over $200,000 if each volunteer hour is worth $22.14. Barry Conrad received an Honorable Mention Award for his service last year. Sue Myer also received an Honorable Mention. Necrology committee chairperson Ruby Gaston honored 28 educators who passed away in the past year by ringing a chime for their contribution to education, and a second chime for those who served in the armed forces. Those

honored with one chime were: Virginia M. Balsbaugh, Hazel M. Cecil, Genevieve M. Cochley, Mary M. Coe, William K. Delaplane, Sarah K. Fouts, Mary F. Hill, Irene K. Knarr, Joan Koller, Carolyn I. Leffel, Doris McDonald, David B. McGuire, Erma Petry, Charles E. Shank, Kelso M. Slayman, Muriel Williams and Beth Ann Airgood. Those honored with two chimes were: Alvin E. Bailey, William L. Bird, Robert M. Curless, Gladys D. Harvey, Robert W. Holcomb, C. Eugene Howard, Allen Hunbert, Evan Kinsley, Bonnie J. Walters and Allen

Willmert. The Necrology books are on display for those who wish to see them. Under Old Business, Bud Tully will investigate interest rates at other institutions after the books are closed at the end of June. Under New Business, Mary Jane Toepfer reported on the Representative Assembly Meeting on June 19. Next year WCRTA will change to District 6. Retired teachers will receive a stipend in Sept., and it is hoped that a COLA will be in effect next year. Let Barry Conrad know if anyone is interested in

serving on a committee. The next meeting will be on Sept. 19. No definite place has been confirmed. Barry Conrad thanked the officers for serving this year. The program was changed because Bev Vanderpool was unable to attend. Cheryl Koehler gave a program on called “Mysteries.” She discussed mysteries in science, the five senses and the human mind. She pointed out several interesting facts in each area and had the audience participate in several activities to demonstrate each fact.

C o m m u n i t y Programs, Indiana Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Commission, were interviewed on the subject. Research has concluded sidestream smoke (the smoke that comes directly from the burning end of a tobacco product), is four times more toxic than mainstream smoke (the smoke that is exhaled from a smoker’s mouth or nostrils). During the 1980s, Phillip Morris (tobacco company) secretly acquired a German research firm by the name of Institute for Biological Research (INBIFO). The INBIFO never published over 115 studies it did on the toxicity of secondhand smoke exposure including several studies on sidestream smoke. During November of 1981, the INBIFO conducted a 21-day inhalation study on three groups of lab rats. There was a mainstream, sidestream and a control group. Each group consisting of 20 rats were exposed to seven hours of smoke a day. At the end of the study, 11 rats from the

Community Garden launched at O.J. Neighbours W a b a s h Marketplace, Inc. has partnered with the Wabash County YMCA and Wabash City Schools to launch a Community Garden at O.J. Neighbours Elementary School. Patrick Sullivan, executive director for Wabash Marketplace, Dr. Marvin Wright, a volunteer and YMCA staff helped construct two new raised beds to join one existing bed at OJ Neighbours. Wabash Marketplace, True Value, Hoffman’s Nursery, Brodbeck Seeds, kellie Brace and Schlemmer Brothers Metalworks donated materials for the beds. First and second grade students from both Wabash City Schools and MSD of Wabash County schools participating in the YMCA’s Summer Program of Awesome Reading for Kids (SPARK) planted the garden beds as part of their camp program. “Our campers are learning what plants need to grow and are also get-

ting hands-on experience by planting and tending the raised beds,” stated Amanda Jones-Layman, Director of Academic Engagement. “We are fortunate to have dedicated volunteers and support from Purdue Extension Master Gardeners guiding our campers both in the classroom and out in the garden.” “Since Wabash Marketplace programs the Wabash Farmers Market, the kids will also have the opportunity to sell what they grow or take vegetables home to enjoy with their families,” continued Jones-Layman. The vegetables that have been planted this summer include green beans, tomatoes, carrots lettuce, peppers and squash. SPARK campers work in the Community Garden weekly and are entirely responsible for the care and upkeep of the raised beds. “This is a truly rewarding project for Wabash Marketplace to facilitate,” shared

Reader asks church leaders to step up Dear editor, On July 2 as I was reading the syndicated column by Doug Patton, I couldn’t help but agree with him when he said America has ceased being great…or even good. For years I have been asking myself, “Where are our churches throughout this great country?” I can’t help but wonder what God is thinking. Organizations that get things passed by the Supreme Court make their voices heard. They protest and they are always speaking out. Where are the leaders of our churches all over the

country? I truly believe there are many Christians that would follow if only we had leadership. Are they more concerned about getting new members? Many of them don’t even preach about sins anymore. I personally feel that God is a God of love but I also have a great fear of Him. I believe His words and we as a country don’t seem to be afraid or believe what He has written. That is too bad for us. Marcia Short Wabash

Wabash Art Guild combines unique items

MeLisa D Styles

The Wabash Art Guild met recently at the home of Brenda Ramseier for a fun day including a creative challenge. Each artist was tasked to create art (in their choice of media) based on a word they picked out of a box and a surprise item hidden in a paper bag they chose. Imaginations were surely stretched to combine such things as: music/owl; cat/car; antique/scissors; grandma/flowers; roses/birdhouse; tree/yarn, etc. This exercise prompted creativity to flow freely into some beautifully unique designs! A carry-in meal offered a variety of delicious foods enjoyed by all. On July 11 at 9 a.m.,

489 Bond St. (Stitt St. Entrance)

the guild will be meeting at Charley Creek Gardens for a “Do Your Own Thing” day. Artists bring their own art to work on in the peaceful atmosphere of the inside garage or traverse to the gardens to paint “en plein aire.” Bring a sack lunch. New members welcome. If you have any questions, please phone 260-563-7690. The Wabash Art Guild is a not-for-profit organization that promotes the study, appreciation, encouragement and welfare of art and civic art improvements. It sponsors art lectures, exhibits and demonstrations for members and the public by meeting monthly with a variety of programming.

Don’t Fail Your Child Before School Starts-Schedule A BackTo-School Eye Examination

Almost 80% of what a child learns in school is presented visually. It stands to reason then, that good vision is essential to learning. Yet studies show only 31% of children between the ages of 6 and 16 have an annual eye exam, according to Dr. Bradley Farlow, Therapeutic Optometrist. And 70% of children under 6 years, the age at which most vision problems can be treated before permanent damage occurs, have never had an eye exam. “Some 20 million children will go back to school this year with a vision problem that may interfere with their ability to learn and contribute to disciplinary problems,” Dr. Bradley Farlow said. But what about “Vision Screenings” performed by a school nurse or a pediatrician? Won’t they detect vision problems? Only partially, according to Dr. Bradley Farlow, “According to a study by the National Institutes of Health, vision-screening methods detected only 40 - 65% of children with vision problems,” Dr. Bradley Farlow said. “Every child should have a comprehensive eye health examination.” Dr. Bradley Farlow said. “Even if a child has passed a vision screening, a comprehensive exam can reveal problems that would go undetected in a screening. And if a vision problem is detected, your family eye doctor can begin treatment immediately.”

URBANA FESTIVAL AUGUST 3 will have booth spaces available for homebased businesses. For more information call Kristie Boyd at 260438-3557. URBANA HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 1943 marked their 70th anniversary this year. On June 25, three members of

that class, Doris Mattern, Orville Chamberlain, Bob Wolf and guest Betty Mattern from Haines City, Fla., met at the home of Orville and Martha Chamberlain for lunch and a time of reminiscing about life in Urbana 70 years ago. Their class motto was “Life is what we make it.” Doris Mattern wrote, “Seventy years ago was an unusual school year with all the thought and discussion about being in World War II in Europe and the Pacific and the demands upon each individual. We knew that the living habits of all had been affected, and there had developed a state of

general unrest and doubt which reached the youngest of our students. It was difficult for the younger people to keep the faith and have confidence for the future. (Does this sound familiar for today?) Families had to have ration stamps to buy gasoline, fuel oil, shoes, sugar, etc. Three of the boys in the class of 1943 went to serve their country and the rest remained at home to help on the farm.” There are six living out of the class of 15: Earl Wilcox, Herman Myer, Bob Wolf, Orville Chamberlain, Louise (Purdy) Martin, and Doris (Hoover) Mattern.

RESIDENTS CASH IN: Pictured above are the Overstuffed Money Bags containing 10 individual Vault Bags full of money that everyone is trying to get. That’s because each Vault Bag is known to contain over 100 U.S. Gov’t issued coins some dating back to the early 1900s.

State zip codes determine who gets free Silver coins Vault bags loaded with U.S. Gov’t issued coins are up for grabs as thousands of U.S. residents stand to miss the deadline to claim the money; now any U.S. resident who finds their zip code listed below gets to claim the bags of money for themselves and keep any valuable coins found inside by covering the Vault Bag fee within the next 2 days The phone lines are ringing off the hook. That’s because for the next 2 days Vault Bags containing valuable U.S. Gov’t issued coins are actually being handed over to U.S. residents who find their zip code listed in today’s publication. “Now that the bags of money are up for grabs U.S. residents are claiming as many as they can get before they’re all gone. That’s because after the Vault Bags were loaded with over 100 U.S. Gov’t issued coins the bags were sealed for good. But we do know that some of the coins date clear back to the early 1900s, including: a 90% pure Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollar, an Eisenhower Dollar, some of the last ever minted U.S. Dollars, Kennedy Half Dollars, Silver Mercury Dimes, rarely seen Liberty ‘V’ Nickels, nearly 100 year old Buffalo Nickels and unsearched currently circulating U.S. Gov’t issued nickels, dimes and quarter dollars, but there’s no telling what you’ll find until you sort through all the coins.” said Timothy J. Shissler, Chief Numismatist for the private World Reserve. The only thing residents need to do is call the National Claim Hotline before the 2-day order deadline ends. Everyone who does is being given the 90% pure Silver Walking Liberty coin for free just by covering the fee for each Vault Bag loaded with over 100 U.S. Gov’t issued coins for only $99 as long as they call before the deadline ends. So, if lines are busy keep trying, all calls will be answered. N





How to claim the bags of U.S. Gov’t issued coins: Read the important information below. Then call the National Claim Hotline at: 1-888-282-6742 I keep calling and can’t get through: This announcement is being so widely advertised because each Vault Bag is guaranteed to contain a free Silver Walking Liberty coin and just that one coin alone could be worth $15 to $325 in collector value. So thousands of residents are calling to claim as many Vault Bags as they can get before they’re all gone. In fact, since the Vault Bag fee is just $ 99 everyone is claiming as many bags as they can before the deadline ends. So if lines are busy keep trying, all calls will be answered. How much are the Vault Bags worth: Coin values always fluctuate and there are never any guarantees, but here’s why U.S. residents are claiming as many Vault Bags as they can get before they’re all gone. After the Vault bags were loaded with over 100 U.S. Gov’t issued coins including: Silver, scarce, highly collectible, and a big scoop of unsearched currently circulating U.S. Gov’t issued coins the bags were sealed for good. But we do know that some of the coins date back to the 1900s. That means there’s no telling what you’ll find until you sort through all the coins. So you better believe at just $99 the Vault Bag fee is a real steal since the free Silver Walking Liberty coin alone could be worth from $15 to $325 in collector value. Are the Silver Walking Liberty coins really Free: Yes. U.S. residents who beat the 2-day deadline are getting a Silver Walking Liberty coin minted between 1916-1947 free with each Vault Bag they claim. Why is the Vault Bag fee so low: Because thousands of U.S. residents have missed the deadline to claim the money the World Reserve has re-allocated Vault Bags that will be scheduled to be sent out in the next 2 days. That means the money is up for grabs and now any resident who finds the first two digits of their zip code on the Distribution List below gets to claim the bags of money for themselves and keep all the U.S. Gov’t issued coins found inside. Each Vault Bag fee is set at $149 for residents who miss the 2-day deadline, but for those who beat the 2-day deadline the Vault Bag fee is just $ 99 for as long as they call the National Claim Hotline before the deadline ends at: 1-888-282-6742.

Mother and son jailed for child abuse charges at Mississinewa Reservoir

Miami CountyIndiana Conservation Officers are investigating an alleged case of child abuse, which occurred at Mississinewa Reservoir on July 5 and 6 in the modern c a m p g r o u n d . Investigating Indiana Conservation Officer Jerry Hoerdt received a complaint from witnesses who were camping nearby the suspects’ campsite on the evening of July 6 and advised Hoerdt that two suspects were abusing a 21month old girl. The suspects were later identified as Craig Minarik, 31, Peru, and his mother Linda Black, 53, also of Peru. Witnesses described several instances of extreme, excessive discipline which Minarik and Black directed onto Minarik’s 21-month old stepdaughter. Investigators interviewed Minarik and Black as well as numerous witnesses and based on their findings, Minarik and Black were arrested for felony neglect of a dependent and felony battery on a child. Minarik was also charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and Black was also served a pre-existing warrant for her arrest out of Cass County. Both subjects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. State child protective services took custody of three children from the campsite that evening and evaluated their well-being and then released them to family members. The Miami County Sheriffs Dept. and Mississinewa Reservoir security employees assisted Indiana Conservation Officers at the scene.

ST. PATRICK’S CHURCH HISTORY: The following poem was shared with me. It is entitled “A Little Cross of Gold,” dedicated to St. Patrick’s Church in Lagro. Wallace Storm Sellers, who lived south of Lagro near the “narrows” at the time of the writing, wrote the poem. Ruby Anderson recited this to granddaughter, Floretta Strange in 1971, when Ruby was 80 years old. Ruby was a member of St. Patrick’s church for

78 years and had memorized and cherished this poem. Most people have some keepsake that they cherish As a token of some childhood memories. And dearest now of all my earthly treasures is the little cross my mother gave to me. It was many years ago and the sun was sinking low In a dear old Irish village cross the sea. She had kissed me fond goodbye with a sad tear in her eye As she placed it in my hand and said to me, “Keep it darling, as a charm, it will guard you from all harm if you keep the faith that mother taught to thee.” Then I promised God above I would keep in faith and love That little cross my mother gave to me. Just a little cross of gold from a rosary of

This unique program is built around small group interaction and

Celebrate Recovery and Celebration Station offers age appropriate teachings based on the New Testament principle that as a community we support each other in our individual healing. Fellowship and accountability, exercised in a trusting and confidential environment, are two important components of spiritual growth. Worship, teaching and small group discussions focus on helping each person apply their faith in every facet of life, so they may experience first -hand the blessings of God.

Indiana State Police launch public website displaying school bus inspection records

Indianapolis – The Indiana State Police, in accordance with state law, conduct inspections of all school buses used to transport children to public and private schools. All buses are inspected annually. Buses more than 12 model years old are inspected biannually. While school bus inspection reports are a public record, historically there was not a simple way for parents, school officials, or the public in general to view the thousands of inspection reports prepared by state police personnel each school year. To make school bus records more accessi-

8 out of 10 people in Wabash County use at least one of our products each week. You’re one of them, and we appreciate the opportunity to serve you.


ble the Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division, in collaboration with the Indiana Office of Technology (IOT), and Indiana Interactive, a subsidiary of e-government provider NIC USA, developed a public access portal website where school bus inspection records can be viewed from the comfort of a parents’ home computer. The all-encompassing goal of this public access portal website is to provide parents, school officials, and the public in general, an easy to navigate website with up-todate school bus inspection informa-

tion. To that end, other website owners are invited to make a direct link to the Indiana State Police school bus inspection public access portal website. The public access portal website became operational on July 1, 2013. The website contains records from more than 30,000 inspections and will automatically update within days after future school bus inspections are conducted. Access to this new service can be made in several ways: Visit this Indiana State Police website link at htm. Read the introduction information and then click this l i n k : sInspections/Public/I ndex. You may also go directly to the site at: sInspections/Public/I ndex Once on the site, simply select the county where the school is located and follow the on screen directions to view selected school bus inspection records. Refer to this helpful guide: 1. Select the County of the School Corporation (continued on page 24)

Peabody Retirement Community thanks Akron for Fourth of July

DORIS LAKE IS CELEBRATING her 90th birthday on July 22. If you see her, wish her a happy birthday. (photo provided)

Dear Editor, P e a b o d y R e t i r e m e n t Community would like to extend its thanks to the town of Akron for their hospitality at the Fourth of July Parade. Twenty-one residents from Healthcare, Assisted, and Independent Living, plus several staff enjoyed the wide variety of floats. Karen Camp Drone, President of the Akron Area Arts League, Ltd., laid the groundwork for the morning by providing us with information on Parade times, street closings, and connecting us with great seating and parking! (Karen has also kept us updated on other Akron happenings that we’ve enjoyed, such as the Third Friday Jams in the Akron Community Center.) We would like to

recognize the EarlLove Funeral Home on East Rochester Street for all they did for us before, during and after the parade. Earl-Love reserved parking spots for our bus and van, saved front row seats on the tree lawn, opened up the Funeral Home in case any residents might need restroom facilities and allowed several residents to

wait in the air conditioning after the parade while we were loading up. We are so thankful for the extra effort they made to ensure that Peabody residents were comfortable and could enjoy the morning! We would also like to thank the Good Samaritans who helped us with a low tire on the van. One gentleman went up

and down the nearby alleys asking around until he found a neighboring house that had an air compressor. Two gentlemen quickly pumped up the tire for us and we made it back to North Manchester without any other issues. We appreciate these men who volunteered their time and services without even being asked!

THE PAPER 32 Agriculture Concentration to help area agribusiness professionals

VINCENNES— Area agribusiness professionals will benefit from the introduction of a new academic concentration at Vincennes University. “The Agribusiness Concentration within our Technology baccalaureate degree program is a nice fit for those who can’t go away and get a bachelor’s degree but who need the degree to get promoted, gain job security, or to get a new job,” said Susan Brocksmith, program coordinator for the

Ag ribusiness Concentration. Brocksmith said the primary beneficiaries of the new concentration are Agribusiness professionals in the greater Vincennes area who already hold an associate degree. “Many of these graduates have reached that level in their career where they can’t get another promotion to achieve a higher pay level because they don’t have a bachelor’s degree. They may also need a bachelor’s degree to apply for a

July 17, 2013

different job,” Brocksmith said. Agribusiness accounts for one in six U.S. jobs and nearly one-fifth of the U.S. gross national product. Beyond its wide scope, it is a maturing industry with lots of retirements on the horizon, making employment and promotion opportunities abundant. “I have had several calls about openings for Extension jobs, Soil and Water Conservation District jobs, Natural R e s o u r c e s

Conservation Services jobs -and these positions require a bachelor’s degree,” Brocksmith said. Examples of private sector jobs include farm and livestock managers, sales representatives, grain specialists, production managers, seed representatives, custom applicators and pesticide professionals. “This new concentration will help our graduates as they continue their careers and look to their

future,” Brocksmith said. Designed for persons who already have an associate degree, the Ag ribusiness Concentration provides courses that allow persons to take night classes leading to a VU Technology baccalaureate degree. The degree can be achieved within two years. Examples of courses include A g r i c u l t u r a l Marketing, Farm Management, Total Quality Management

and Agribusiness Public Policy Issues. “Ours is not a hard science curriculum since our degree is tilted toward business with the added benefit of gaining an understanding of the agriculture side. We have seen great interest from our alumni,” Brocksmith said. For more information about VU’s Ag ribusiness Concentration, contact Brocksmith at sbrocksmith@vinu.ed u or by phone at 812888-5718. Information is also available at VU is state-supported with campuses in Vincennes and Jasper and additional sites such as Indianapolis and the Gibson County Center for A d v a n c e d Manufacturing and Logistics. VU also offers instruction at military sites throughout the nation. In addition to offering 200 associate degree and certificate

programs, VU also offers bachelor’s degree programs in technology, homeland security, nursing, secondary education programs in mathematics and science and special education/elementary education. VU enrolls students from throughout Indiana, 28 other states, and 30 countries. Tuition and fees are the lowest among Indiana campuses with residence halls. VU is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Founded in 1801, VU is Indiana’s first college and is the only college in the nation founded by an individual who would later become President of the United States. William Henry Harrison, the ninth U.S. President, founded VU while serving as governor of the Indiana Territory. More information is available at

Dukes Memorial Hospital... continued from page 26 patients can rely on as an indication that the facility has been carefully critiqued on all aspects of its operations considered relevant by medical experts in the field of E ch o c a rd i o g r ap hy. When scheduled for an Echocardiography procedure, patients are encouraged to inquire as to the accreditation status of the facility where their examination will be performed and can learn more by visiting atients.htm. IAC accreditation is widely respected within the medical community, as illustrated by the support of the national medical societies related to Echocardiography, which include physicians and sonographers. Echocardiography accreditation is required in some states and regions by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and by some private insurers. However, patients should remain vigilant in making sure that their E c h o c a r d i o g r a p hy procedures are performed within accredited facilities, because for many facilities accreditation remains a voluntary process.

“Dukes Memorial Hospital is thoroughly committed to providing the highest quality heart care for our cardiovascular patients,” said Debra Close, Dukes Memorial Hospital CEO. “In addition to being named a Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care accredited Chest Pain Center, t h i s E c h o c a r d i o g r a p hy accreditation has given us the opportunity to highlight the exceptional heart care we provide for our patients, and help us improve care overall for our community.” Dukes Memorial Hospital is a health care organization with the primary mission of offering high quality, acute heart care and preventative medical care in a caring and compassionate manner to all people who live in, work in, or visit Miami County and its surrounding areas. Dukes Memorial Hospital is committed to building a healthier community. For more information on Dukes Memorial Hospital, contact Courtney Ogletree, Director of Marketing, at 765-4728016 or cogletree@dukesmem
