Tennant claims 2012 Wabash County Round Robin Showmanship

2012 ROUND ROBIN SHOWMANSHIP: Collin Tennant (center) was selected as the 2012 Round Robin Showmanship Champion during the annual showmanship competition held July 12. Pictured are: (from left) Sidney Reed, Swine; Bethany Azbell, Veal; Jackie McConnell, Goat; Collin Tennant, Sheep; Round Robin Judge Matt Tyner; Taylor Chamberlain, 2011 Round Robin Champion; Colton Dawes, Dairy; Marlee Stefanatos, Horse and Pony; and Cole Mize, Beef. (photo by Brent Swan) by Brent Swan After becoming the Sheep Department’s Round Robin Showmanship representative, Collin Tennant felt that particular species should be the least of his worries. That belief, however, proved to be

far from the truth. During the Round Robin competition, seven participants (one from each animal department at the fair) take a turn showing each of the seven different animals represented. No participant is allowed to

show their own animal and the order of the animals is kept from the showmen until the competition begins. Tennant, a fifthyear 4-H member, was this year’s Sheep Department representative. Having won

Senior Showmanship in a previous year, Tennant qualified for the Sheep Supreme Showman drive during the sheep show earlier in the week, which he ultimately won. Other representa(continued on page 6)

City residents should see adjustment on July water bill

by Danielle Swan The July 9 meeting of Wabash City Council opened with the passing of General Ordinance #7 regarding open burning. Council Member Joan Haag asked how the proposed ordinance differs from the City’s existing burn ordinance. City Attorney Doug Lehman explained that the proposed ordinance includes an exception to allow the

City’s wastewater treatment plant to burn the reed bed, which extends the life of the reed bed and saves the City money in cleaning the reed bed. Mayor Robert Va n l a n d i n g h a m introduced the new addition to the Wabash City Fire Department, Jared Tackett. He also commended local fire departments, Roann, Noble, Lagro and

Wabash, for their exceptional teamwork at the recent brush refuse fire. In a related note, he thanked Wabash residents for keeping fireworks to a minimum over the dry Fourth of July holiday. W h e n Va n l a n d i n g h a m asked for questions from the audience, Paul Lewis posed a few questions regarding the status of the 2013 City Budget.

Lewis asked Council President Margaret “Boo” Salb if she feels the counsel has done everything they can to keep the budget low. “A lot of our departments turn money back in at the end of the year and we just continue to keep within the budget, so I feel we do a very good job with it,” she said. Local Landlord Darrell Benson was next to take the floor.

He expressed frustration at the City for notices he received regarding a tenant that failed to pay sewage fees on Benson’s rental property. The notices warned Mr. Benson that the City is required to file a lien against a property if sewage fees are not paid. Benson feels this is unfair because the tenant is the individual who incurred the debt.

“The rationale behind it is that your property is not a health hazard, backed up with sewage, because the City of Wabash takes your sewage away from it,” Lehman explained. In the past, the City has tried to recoup sewage fees from the actual tenant, but the State Board of Accounts now requires that the City file a lien against property. Council

Member Scott Long reminded Benson that his recourse is to file suit against the tenant in Small Claims Court, to which Benson responded that he has obtained judgment against former tenants in several cases, but still has been unable to collect money from them. After a lengthy discussion, Lehman informed Benson that if he disagrees with (continued on page 6)

and Marlee Stefanatos, Horse and Pony. “Coming into the Round Robin, I was probably the most worried about the horses by far,” Tennant said. “But inside the ring, the sheep I drew gave me the most problems.” Having shown sheep throughout his 4-H career, Tennant knew he had a tough draw with the sheep he had to show in the Round Robin. “He kept jumping up into the air,” Tennant explained. “I thought I had lost the competition

right there. All you can do from then is just keep your cool and keep showing your animals, even if you think it’s over.” Having competed at a statewide level previously, Tennant said the key to the night was able to keep a cool head. “I’ve shown sheep on a circuit for a while now, and as of right now, I had the lead in showmanship points,” Tennant said. “Showing animals as much as we do really helps out at a show like this.” By the time the last group of ani-

mals came into the ring, however, Tennant began to think he had a shot at the title. “I felt like it was between me and a buddy of mine (Cole Mize) at the end,” Tennant explained. “I really thought he had beaten me.” After both had highly successful fair weeks, with both claiming at least some form of Grand Champion animal, Tennant said the competition between the two during the Round Robin competition was more laidback. “We don’t really

give each other too hard of a time,” Tennant said of the friendly rivalry. “He’s in a different barn than me, so we don’t have to show against each other much during the fair week.” As the judge announced the winner, Tennant said he was able to begin taking in the victory. “During the show, you have to block out everything that’s going on around you and try to concentrate on just the animal in front of you,” Tennant said. “The one thing I was most surprised by was the

amount of people in the crowd. Anytime you have to get in front of that many people, it’s something that gets to you a little bit.” Tennant was quick to thank all those who helped him prepare for the Round R o b i n Showmanship. “I have to thank my family first off, my mom and dad and little sister especially,” Tennant said. “To all the people that let me work with their animals, thank you.”

City residents should see adjustment... continued from front page the law, he should contact state legislators as this issue is governed by state statute. Lisa Carpenter then took the floor as a representative of her and approximately 70 others in her neighborhood, Ewing and Hanna’s Addition. She and her neighbors are concerned with a motor home, owned by the resident of 447 Stitt

This problem had been reported, and Lehman answered that he has been researching the issue and has paperwork drafted to solve the problem, which he planned to file with the court the week of

July 9. M a y o r Va n l a n d i n g h a m announced that he has been receiving calls regarding high water bills during recent weeks. He wants to make Wabash City residents aware that they should expect to see a lower bill for July, August and September as the result of a sprinkler adjustment.

Prior to adjournment of the meeting, Council Member Bonnie Corn thanked Bill Konyha and the Wabash City Street Department for taking care of an overgrown yard that she had received complaints about. The next Wabash City Council meeting will be held on July 23, 6 p.m., at Wabash City Hall.

Manchester looks to Do it Best’s Dave Haist for alumni relations leadership

A top official is leaving the international hardware cooperative Do it Best Corp. to serve as the next alumni relations leader of Manchester College. Dave Haist, a 1973 business and economics alumnus who has remained connected with his alma mater throughout his corporate and legal career, officially begins his new job on July 9. He succeeds 1965 graduate Gary Montel, who has directed alumni relations since 1991. Haist is retiring as executive vice president and chief operating officer of the Fort Wayne-based Do it Best cooperative of 4,000 hardware and building supply stores. He brings three decades of dynamic leadership not only with Do it Best and as

managing partner of a major Fort Wayne law firm, but also with Manchester, says College President Jo Young Switzer. “Dave Haist is a respected and well-informed leader who grows deep roots in the communities where he works. His knowledge of finance, the law and the complex world of global business is extraordinary.” Haist has chaired Manchester’s Board of Trustees and its committees, and is cochair with his wife, Sandy (a 1974 graduate), of the $100 million Students First! fund-raising campaign. The student dining Commons in The Union bears the family name. “In a sense, we never really left Manchester after graduation,” says

Haist as he grins widely about his new role as executive director of alumni relations. He also will teach a class, P r i n c i p l e d Leadership. “I get to do something entirely different with my career. It’s invigorating, personally satisfying. I couldn’t be more excited.” It’s the student experience at Manchester that inspires the corporate Haist to his new role in higher education. “Manchester does so much for its students,” he says with prideful awe. His passion stems from his own story as a “reluctant student” from Wabash, whose parents insisted he give college a try. “Manchester opened my mind. It prepared me for life, and introduced me to

the necessity of volunteer service and involvement,” he says, quickly adding that Manchester prepared him to succeed in law school and CPA certification, and for success in those professions. It is also where he met his wife, Sandy. He is inspired by “where Manchester is headed, what Manchester is doing,” with its new learning centers in North Manchester and Fort Wayne, a Pharmacy professional doctoral degree, increasing enrollment, a name change on July 1 to University, and the dedication to a Mission of learning, commitment and service. Haist was managing partner of Barnes & Thornburg’s Fort Wayne law office, before joining his

client in 1997 as general counsel and vice president of corporate affairs. Then he tackled Do it Best’s retail development, continuing to expand his leadership role as the 4,000-member cooperative grew to more than $2.4 billion in sales at hardware and building materials stores in all 50 states and more than 50 countries. Haist sees many parallels between Do it Best and Manchester, especially in the importance of well-served connections. “Do it Best is a membership organization that engages all of its members,” he says. “I’m a strong believer in teams, in groups: Engage folks, bring folks together. Connect people and allow people to be even more connect-

Drought has potential three-year Wabash County Hospital closes on purchase of land ‘tail’ on beef production Wabash County Hospital officials announced that they have closed on the 33 acres of land that had previously been identified as the site for a potential new facility. The land is situated on the south side of US 24, in an area between Alber and Wabash Streets. “Although it may seem to be a slow process, our building project continues to move forward,” WCH President and CEO Marilyn CusterMitchell said. “Closing on the land is another step toward

a new facility. With that said, there is still much to be determined.” Among those items to still be determined is financing. The hospital is in the final stages of gathering information to submit a USDA loan application. “We would expect to hear some kind of response to that within 60 days,” CusterMitchell explained. “That could be anything from questions about our application, to a request for more information or even approval.

Approval, of course, would be the best case scenario.” C u s t e r- M i t c h e l l also said that the building committee, physicians, and hospital leaders have all been looking at architectural plans over the last few months. Those plans have been updated and modified several times in an effort to create optimal efficiency and ease of use for patients and visitors. Wabash County Hospital is a not-forprofit, 25-bed critical access hospital.

Serving the community since 1919, WCH has an active medical staff of more than 25 highlyskilled physicians and more than 30 expert specialists who visit the Outpatient Clinic on a regular basis. Areas of service include General and Orthopedic Surgery, O n c o l o g y , Cardiology, Home Healthcare and Hospice, Sleep M e d i c i n e , Gynecology, Internal Medicine, Family Practice, and much more.

Livestock producers who fail to properly manage the drought could find themselves dealing with the consequences long after the rains return, says a Purdue Extension beef specialist. Exceptionally high temperatures and extremely low rainfall have combined to stress livestock and reduce their feed supplies. Producers can take steps to manage a situation that might cost some money now but could pay off in big

ways in the long run. “The tail on this can be pretty long if we don’t manage things right in a drought year,” Ron Lemenager said. “One thing that I think is really important for producers to consider this year is body condition. If you use condition scores of these cows as a barometer of where you’re at nutritionally, we can’t do much about the heat or drought, but we can make sure we don’t have any nutritional deficiencies.” In a drought year, forages are low in both quality and quantity, which can leave cows thin and under nourished. Less-than-optimal body conditions can have reproductive consequences not only this year, but next year as well. Heat stress coupled with poor nutrition can create a double whammy by lowering oocyte and sperm quality, as well as embryo survival if fertilization does occur, Lemenager said. “The environmental conditions we are experiencing have ratcheted stress forward into the heart of the breeding season for those that calve in the spring, meaning it’s very probable we’ll see more open cows than normal this fall,” he said. Lemenager said the likely increase in open cows this year means producers need to pregnancycheck cows to minimize the use of expensive feeds. When forages are in short supply, there is little reason for producers to feed nonproductive animals. Instead, they can consider marketing culled cows earlier than normal to take advantage of higher market prices. “If we’re short on forage we have the option of sliding by, but if cows are thin going into the fall, fewer will be bred, calves will be lighter at weaning time this year and fewer calves will be born next year,” Lemenager said. “Then, if cows are

thin heading into next breeding season, fewer cows will be bred and colostrum quality will be lower, meaning a lower calf survival rate which affects productivity in years two and three.” To avoid the threeyear “tail,” he said producers might need to pay the price now to supplement feed and make sure cows are healthy and in moderate body condition. Healthy cows will breed better and can shorten the time producers face fallout from the drought. In addition to monitoring body condition, Lemenager and Purdue Extension forage specialist Keith Johnson offered producers a list of steps they can take to manage drought and heat stress: Avoid overgrazing and employ rotational grazing Creep-feed calves to create near normal weaning weights Early-wean calves to take pressure off of both cows and pastures Identify and manage poisonous plants in pastures and hay fields Establish summer annuals to increase late-season forage production Pre gnancy-check and market cull cows earlier than normal to reduce feed needs Inventory hay and other feed resources Analyze feeds for nutrient profiles to help determine supplemental feed needs Use alternative feeds to supplement and stretch forage supplies Limit hay access time to stretch forage supplies Limit-feed a highconcentrate diet to stretch forage supplies Graze crop residues and stockpiled forages to reduce harvested feed needs Use drought-stressed corn for grazing, green chop or silage Make sure cattle have access to a clean, cool water supply Moisten the soil around ground rods of electric fences.

DOWNTOWN N O R T H MANCHESSTER MOBBED: Monday, July 9, two downtown businesses were mobbed by local community members. Andrew Duffy is the brains behind the idea of the community patronizing local merchants. One World Handcrafts and Mr. Daves were the chosen businesses and have reported a marked increase in business on the ninth. The goal is to monthly choose two local businesses and spend $20 at the two businesses. We have such a variety of businesses in North Manchester and it is a tribute to our town to be supportive of those businesses by frequenting them. I will keep you posted as to the next target of mobbing. THIRD ANNUAL TOWN WIDE GARAGE SALE: The third annual North Manchester Town Wide Garage Sale is being set for August 3 and 4. Apparently some 85 participated in the second annual garage sale and it is hopeful to increase participation this year. The goal of having a town wide garage sale is to bring in curious buyers from around and outside the community. Having the sale in August allows no competition with the earlier summer sales and possibly repeat sales. The Chamber is planning the event with assistance from the News Journal. The advertising of the sales will be printed in the News Journal and The Paper. The drop-off site will be downtown at the Journal for you to submit your sale information. Also, they will be printing a list of the locations for two days along with a detailed map highlighting each location. The Paper will also be printing the information in one issue. For more information please contact the Chamber at 260-982-7644. 4TH OF JULY


July 18, 2012

FIREWORKS: Over 1,500 people were in attendance of the 4th of July Fireworks display. The evening was filled with the music provided by the Manchester Civic Band. Refreshments were available to purchase while we enjoyed the show. I have to admit in the many years that I have been attending the fireworks show, this was my favorite. A special Thank You to the firemen who were diligently watering the area and also in attendance to monitor the need for their services. LifeMed was also on-site and available if needed. Many other volunteered their time to insure a safe and enjoyable time. RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE: July 19 from 12-6 p.m. at the North Manchester Church of the Brethren located at 1306 N. Beckley Street will be the location of the next summer blood drive. Often we don’t think about the need for blood or its supply until it hits ourselves or our family. However the short time it takes for one to attend a blood drive can and does save lives. Anyone over the age of 17 weighing at least 110 pounds is eligible to donate blood as long as they have not donated within the last 56 days. If you are 16 years old and wish to donate you can provide a written consent form signed by a parent or guardian to do so. All presenting donors will be receiving a tshirt for their time and gracious gift. If you have ever wanted to do something heroic in your life, this is a wonderful way to do it. Help save a life by giving a pint. THE PAPER DOES PRINTING: We are in the process of planning our daughter’s wedding and I was pleased as the prospect of having her print work done by The Paper. I was able to meet with the printing department representative, provide the information to be printed and an idea for the background. I was surprisingly pleased to receive an e-mail later that day of a rough draft of the invitations which were perfect. They took our idea and improved upon them. We received same day response and delivery in a matter of days.

They were able to do addressing on envelopes as well as RSVPs which help minimize the work we would be required to do ourselves. The pricing was below others we had checked into. I would recommend them again and again so if you have any printing needs check out what The Paper’s printing department can offer. TALK TO ME: Does your church group, club or other group have an event or something of inter-

est the rest of the community would be interested in hearing about? Let me know and I can pass it along. Do you have any questions about what’s happening in this town, if so, ask me and I will do my best to find the answer for you. DEADLINE for news is Wednesday by 5 p.m. for the following week’s edition. If you woul like to include yourself or a friend or neighbor in the birthday or anniversary list,

please let me know at my email address. I also have a Facebook page if you spend your time on there. If you don’t have access to a computer and would rather contact by phone, you can call 578-7319 and if I don’t answer please leave me your information. If you would rather a return call I will do so. This is your column and it is my desire to include the information you need and will enjoy reading so I’m waiting to hear from you.

By Eric Christiansen Managing Editor Manchester High School baseball player Connor McLaughlin will extend his high school career by three more games July 1415 as a member of the North team in the 38th Annual Indiana High School Baseball Coaches Association All-Star S e r i e s . Fifty players were selected between the North and the South team. The game will be played at Ruxer Field in Jasper, with a single game on July 14, and a doubleheader on July 15. McLaughlin is the second Squire in two years to represent Manchester High School in the all-star series. Scott Baker was named to the North team last year. McLaughlin found out he made the team when he was at the State Finals watching Northfield win the title. “I asked (MHS head coach) Jack Rupley if he

heard anything,” McLaughlin explained. “Once I found out, I was thrilled. I called my grandparents and my parents. It’s quite an honor.” In 2012, McLaughlin had a 5-4 record with one save in 68 1/3 innings pitched. He struck out 137 and walked 27 batters. He gave up 36 runs on 42 hits, with 18 of them earned, for a 1.84 ERA. The senior also threw a no-hitter. In his 4-year career, he pitched 225 innings with an overall record of 24-11 with two saves. He had 381 strikeouts and 94 walks, and gave up 116 runs on 175 hits, 66 of them earned for an ERA of 2.05. McLaughlin is second all-time in strike outs at Manchester High School with 381, third all time for strike outs in a season with 137, and tied for third all time for career wins with 24. McLaughlin has signed with Division I IPFW to play baseball.

Tractor pull results

On June 29 and 30, Lagro held a pair of tractor pulls. Brad Eads placed first in the lightweight division after his machine pulled 327 percent of its weight. Gene Miller (323 percent) and Troy Miller (284 percent) took second and third. Gene Miller (329 percent) won the heavyweight division. Andy Eads (327 percent) came in second and Kevin Baker (313 percent) came in third. Charlie Straw won the open class at 372 percent, Brad Eads came in second with 369 percent and Jessica Rodriguez came in third after she pulled 347 percent. The Eel River Tractor Pullers, sponsored by Pefley Implement, competed on June 30 with 60 entrants over three classes. Dale Norman took first in the lightweight category after hauling 362.23 percent of his tractor’s weight. Tony Bakertook placed third, pulling 342.91 percent, and Bill Kirkpatrick came in third with 338.77 percent. Tony Baker took fourth, Kirkpatrick came in fifth on a different tractor, Gene Miller came in sixth, and Brandt Schrader placed seventh. Randy Renbarger won the medium-weight division after his tractor towed 361.13 percent. Kirkpatrick took second (359.42 percent) and

IHSAA Commissioner issues final report on basketball tournament formats

Following weeks of public town meetings and surveying the IHSAA member schools, Commissioner Bobby Cox has issued his final report on the study of the boys and girls basketball tournament formats. The study originated following an agreement between Cox and Indiana State Senator Mike Delph (R) of Carmel to remove language Delph had introduced as part of Senate Bill 236 during the 2012 Indiana General Assembly which would have made it illegal for any school corporation to compete in a multiple class basketball tournament. A series of 11 meetings, hosted by both individuals, were scheduled around the state allowing citizens to voice their opinions on the basketball tournament formats and also vote their preference by straw ballot. Of the 514 ballots cast during the 11 meetings, 68.09 percent favored a return to the single class tournament while 31.91 percent supported the current multiple class tournament. The IHSAA also electronically surveyed principals, athletic administrators, boys and girls basketball coaches, as well as boys and girls varsity basketball players at IHSAA member schools. Each of those groups showed strong support for the multiple class tournaments with a majority of principals (76.82 percent), athletic directors (79.29 percent), basketball coaches (54.97 percent) and student-athletes (72.16) voting in favor.

Following the findings of the study, the IHSAA is not formulating any adjustments to the current tournament formats. Any proposals that would alter the current structures and authored by the member schools or the administrative and coaches associations will continue to be accepted and studied by the IHSAA Executive Committee.

IHSAA approves sixth football class, tournament success factor

The IHSAA Executive Committee approved a portion of an Indiana Football Coaches Association (IFCA) proposal in adding a sixth classification to the football state tournament beginning in 2013-14. The Committee also voted in favor of a two-year tournament success factor in each team sport (baseball, basketball, football, soccer, softball volleyball), an accumulation of points by which any school would move up one class based on tournament series performance during that time. Those decisions along with another that will see the IHSAA Girls Basketball State Finals return to Terre Haute for a second consecutive year highlighted the committee’s final monthly meeting of the 2011-12 school year on Thursday. Members of the IFCA had presented a multiple-part proposal to the IHSAA Executive Committee at its February meeting with the Committee then opting to table the proposal for continued study during its March gathering. In brief, it included adding a sixth competition class, seeding the top two teams in each sectional and adding a four-year “tradition factor”. The Executive Committee voted to adopt the sixth class (13-5), but rejected seeding the sectionals (1-17) as well as the four-year tradition factor (0-18) in favor of a similar proposal written by IHSAA Commissioner Bobby Cox calling for a two-year tournament success factor in each team sport (16-2), not just football.

Small Town, Kim Galligan to play concert at Historic Eagles Theatre by Danielle Swan Small Town is making their usual rounds this summer, appearing at most of the local fairs, festivals and events, but on July 24, a Tuesday evening, they will offer a different type of show. The Historic Eagles Theatre in Downtown Wabash will open its doors to welcome Small Town with special guest Kim Galligan for a concert from 7 to 9 p.m. “Since they redid the theatre I’ve just thought it would be a cool place to do a concert,” said Jake Bunnell, lead guitar and vocals for the band. “Ira Dean did his thing there and I just thought it would be a cool place to have a show in a concert setting.”

Small Town is accustomed to playing at festivals and charity events, and this will mark the first time that they are playing an actual concert where they are the main attraction. They are excited to see what kind of turnout they can get in the theatre, which has a capacity of 440 persons. Tickets will be available at the door. “We just would like to see everybody from the community that’s heard us or hasn’t heard us to come out and enjoy the evening,” Jake said. This spring marked the graduation of the two youngest members of the band, Jake Bunnell and Ryan Arwood. In the fall, Jake will attend Belmont University,

Nashville, Tenn., to major in commercial music with an emphasis on either business or performance. Arwood, who plays keyboard for the band, will attend Ball State, majoring in criminal justice. McKayla Hogge, lead vocals, will return to Indiana Wesleyan for her junior year, majoring in elementary education. Wayne Bunnell, bass guitar and vocals, will return to Purdue University for this third year majoring in civil engineering with a minor in land surveying. Small Town has welcomed a new drummer for their Summer 2012 shows, Tad Degunya of Wabash. While members of the band will scatter once school starts, they say, more than likely, they will be back next summer to play some shows. The rest of their 2012 schedule is as follows: July 20, 7-9 p.m., Johnson County Fair,

F.O.P #83



More than 50 bands will take the stage on Aug. 10-11 at H u n t i n g t o n University’s second annual Fandana Festival.

Self Advocacy Group of Crime increases as heat and humidity bake Indiana Wabash County to hold open house on July 28

It’s hot outside. It’s humid, and it doesn’t take much to push people over the edge, says Jerry McKean, a Ball State University criminal justice professor. He believes there is a direct correlation between the increase in violent acts and

hot, oppressive weather. According to FBI crime statistics, more crimes are reported in July and August— the hottest months of the year. Crimes reach a low point in February when the temperatures drop. “It is called heat aggravation. When it

gets hot, people tend to lose their tempers a little bit more quickly.” He also points out that Americans are more active in summer and stay out later at parks, movies or shopping centers. Also, many people take their vacations

during July and August, leaving homes and businesses vulnerable. McKean says that teenagers are out of school during the summer months, and youths are more likely than persons in other age groups to be offenders or victims.

begin in what is currently the sectional semifinal round. The remaining schools will be evenly distributed between Classes 4A, 3A, 2A and A and continue playing in a six-week tournament format. The new classifications will be announced next winter followed by the sectional assignments. “I am extremely encouraged by the vision and valor of our Executive Committee in making these progressive decisions on behalf

of student-athletes in the Hoosier state,” said Cox. “It is my belief that these changes significantly address competition issues in football and will prove to enhance the team sport experience across all other disciplines.” The Committee also voted (18-0) to return the girls basketball state finals and its four state championship games to Terre Haute’s Hulman Center for a second year.

March 2, 2013 in the 10,200-seat venue. The multi-purpose facility has hosted many IHSAA and NCAA tournament events over the years and is the home of the Indiana State University basketball teams. Terre Haute also has hosted the IHSAA Cross Country Finals at the renowned LaVern G i b s o n Championship Cross Country Course since 2004. In addition to Terre Haute, the IHSAA received bids to host the games at Bankers

Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis along with the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, the host site for the 2010 and 2011 state finals. “The Association wishes to thank all three entities for their submissions of proposals to host our girls state basketball championships,” said Cox. “In the final analysis, the proposal from Terre Haute provided the best support and opportunities to the eight member schools that will arrive at the state finals along with

other considerations extended to the IHSAA. The entire Terre Haute community should be proud of their leadership in the creation and execution of this effort.” In addition, a third seat on the IHSAA Board of Directors became vacant to start 2012-13 as Fort Wayne Concordia Lutheran principal John Marks resigned after recently announcing his retirement following a 42-year career, the last 29 at Concordia Lutheran. He has represented private schools on the

IHSAA Board since that seat was created in 2007. In April, Tri-West Hendricks principal Jim Diagostino resigned his District II, Class 2A seat after accepting a job in another district and Connersville athletic director Pam Noble, who held the seat reserved for a South District Female, announced her retirement after a 34year career, 33 at Connersville. Those vacant seats will be filled during the next Board of Directors election in December.

afraid to ask for that help. I didn’t want my family and loved ones to know how bad the situation was. I was afraid that they would be mad or upset and abandon me. So do yourself a favor and just ask for help. I am now free from my addiction. I first want to thank God for giving me the strength to overcome such a powerful affliction. I would also like to thank my family for sticking by my side through all of this. Without building a relationship with Christ, my transformation would not have been possible. So, if you are struggling, get into church. Also, talk to your family about your addiction, they only want what is best for you. Do what you need to do to free yourself from that horrible lifestyle. Put that fear, doubt, and pride aside and get help. Trust me, this is not where you want to be. Take my advice and do not

Dear editor My name is Cory Shenefield, and I am 27 years old. I was born and raised in Wabash County. Unfortunately, right now I am currently at Westville Correctional Facility. I am writing this first and foremost to offer my apologies to all of you; I wronged our community not only by breaking the law, but also by not giving back to the community. Our county is full of generous and caring people that love nothing more than to help one another. All I have done for most of my life was take. I once again want to apologize for my actions. I want you all to know I will be giving back to the community upon my release. Secondly, I want to address all of the young men and women using and abusing drugs. I urge all of you to ask for help so you can break the chain of your addiction. For most of the time I was using, I knew I needed help, but I was too

be hard headed like I was. Look at how I had to learn this lesson. To the parents of those afflicted by drugs, it is unbelievably hard to quit using, but you can make it easier. Show love, compassion and tolerance, not anger. There are a few of us from Wabash in this prison because of substance abuse. We will all be coming home soon, but please don’t think that there will be a few more druggies coming back to town. What will be coming back are men of God who are going to do everything in their power (with God on our side) to stop others from making the same mistakes we did. For those that know me, don’t be ashamed that my name is on this, and be proud of how far I’ve came. Cory Shenefield Westville Correctional Facility Former Wabash County resident
