Local duo plans Farm Truck Road Trip across the United States

by Brent Swan Todd Swan and Neil Bever, childhood friends and Northfield High School g raduates, recently u nve i l e d their plans for a once in a lifet i m e t r i p across t h e country to film a full-length documentary film – in a farm truck worth less than a dollar. Growing up in rural Lagro, both Bever and Swan have been made familiar with various farm trucks, all with their own unique character – most noticeably the Toyota, better known as “The Yota.” “We had been sitting around this past February and the story of The Yota came up again,” Bever said of the beginning of the project. “We felt it didn’t get a proper send off after the clutch went out. It was cheaper to just junk the truck than to spend the $60 to fix it, so it just kind of disappeared.” It was then that Bever and Swan decided to send off Neil’s 1988 Dodge Ram 50 in proper fashion – a two or three week trip from Lagro across the United States to Seattle, Wash., before heading to Los Angeles, Calif., and back home through Colorado and St. Louis. For Swan, a senior film student at Purdue University, the decision to embark on the trip was easy. “I want to direct documentaries after graduation,” Swan said of his goals. “Rural Lagro, Indiana isn’t a booming film area. With Neil heading to chiropractic school this fall, we knew this was really our last chance to do something like this.” “Every film student wants to be a filmmaker, but few ever have the ambition to actually make a feature film,” Swan said. “They always just expect it to happen. They want to come up with a story and have everything else fall into their lap. I know it doesn’t work like that. I wanted to make a feature film that everyone will want to see and one that will entertain the audience.” “So naturally, when the road trip idea came up I realized that it would be entirely possible to do with myself and

one other person,” Swan continued. “I started planning it, and the decisions we’ve made have been for the benefit of the documentary. That’s why we’re sticking with the farm truck. People keep telling us it’s a bad idea, which is why I know we’ve made the right decision. If it were easy, it wouldn’t be that interesting. We know people out west, but we’re going to avoid them if at all possible. We want everything to be entirely foreign.” The plan is to take Bever’s truck as far as it still runs, while filming for a fulllength documentary that will be entirely written and edited by the two. “We want to show, in a film format, that two farm kids from rural Indiana can travel around the entire country to see how diverse the country truly is,” Swan said of the documentary’s plot. “We are going to rely on maps and face to face communication to get where we need to go,” Bever explained. “We want people to know our generation isn’t solely dependent on social media to function.” “The majority of the filming will be outside of the truck. It’s more compelling if you get out and interact with people or go hiking through nature. Plus, that’s what road trips are really about. They’re not about driving for 18 days, they’re about experiencing what’s outside of your hometown.” After starting the trip at the end of

FARM TRUCK ROAD TRIP: Neil Bever (front) and Todd Swan are planning to travel across the United States in this 1988 Dodge Ram 50 truck Bever purchased as a summer vehicle six years ago for $1. The tandem will film their adventure and professionally edit the footage to create a full-length documentary they hope to unveil at the Eagles Theatre in early 2014. (photo by Brent Swan) July, Swan and Bever intend on traveling west towards Seattle while relying on relationships formed on With a low budget for the film, Swan and Bever will inevitably be crashing on the couches of strangers. “Some of the most unique people you will ever meet are through the Couchsurfing website,” Swan said. “I had tried it over in Europe when I was studying abroad, and it is extremely unique.” After completion of the project, Swan and Bever will professionally edit their hours of footage and produce a full length documentary the two plan on unveiling at the Eagles Theatre in early 2014. “It has been a struggle to convince our parents and family that this is a legitimate project,” Swan said. “We want people to know that we have put time and money into this to make the best quality video we can. It’s not going to be a cheap

YouTube video – we want this to be the real deal.” To make a donation to the Farm Truck Road Trip documentary, visit and search for Farm Truck Road Trip or visit e-farm-truck-road-trip-documentary. The project also has a Facebook page and Twitter account the duo plans on updating throughout their journey. “We aren’t going to be using equipment that we found in our mom’s camera bag,” Swan said. “It will look professional. I have purchased a camera already and have an entire production suite on my computer with professional editing software, DVD authoring software, effects software.” “Our camera will shoot in 1080p at 24 frames per second, which is the standard for Hollywood films,” Swan explained. “Don’t expect it to look like Iron Man 3, but you can expect it to look very good.”

Farmers should scout for black cutworms in emerging corn WEST LAFAYETTE - Farmers with emerging corn crops should be on the lookout for infestations of the black cutworm. Many cutworm species target corn in the Midwest, but the black cutworm is the most abundant. In years like this one when planting is delayed, corn emergence, dying annual weeds and black cutworm development can coincide such that the crop is at much higher risk of damage. “Captures of adult moths in some areas of the state have been high, so it’s worthwhile for producers to take a walk through fields when corn starts spiking, as in the early stages, to look for black cutworm damage,” said Christian Krupke, a Purdue Extension entomologist who specializes in field-crop insects. Black cutworm moths are brown with dark, dagger-shaped

markings on their forewings. The larvae are light gray to black and vary in size from one-eighth of a millimeter to 2 inches. Larvae can destroy young corn plants by cutting through stalks. Black cutworm moths overwinter in the milder states surrounding the Gulf of Mexico, but migrate north to Indiana from late February to June. Fields with abundant annual weeds or cover crops are ideal places for moths to lay their eggs, so farmers should be careful to keep the co-occurrence of cover crops and corn crops to a minimum; this year’s rains made that difficult. Young worms with about 25 days left to feed will cut small notches into corn leaves. While the damage is usually not economically significant, this is the stage to try to get rid of the pests. Older worms are harder to control and will ruin crops by cutting into the plants. Growers are likely

PURDUE UNIVERSITY has urged farmers throughout Indiana to check their cornfields for the presence of black cutworms. Individual larvae from the black cutworm moth are capable of destroy up to four plants each.

Each worm has the potential to cut four plants in its lifetime. “As soon as growers see damage on emerging corn and find the black cutworm levels

over threshold in the area, they should treat,” Krupke said. Most damage is done at night. During the day, black cutworms can be found under dirt clods and just beneath the soil surface within 2-3 inches of the last plant damaged. Insecticides can be used to control black cutworm damage, but these chemicals have limitations. Seedapplied insecticides can suppress populations somewhat, but should not be relied upon as a preventative measure that will keep black cutworms at bay, particularly when populations are high. Entomologists track male black cutworm moths to gauge the threat to the state’s corn crops

using traps baited with synthetic versions of female-produced pheromones. The traps are limited in that they don’t predict damage because they don’t catch female moths, which lay the eggs that damage crops. Although the pheromone traps give a good presence/absence indication of which counties might expect to find black cutworms, it is impossible to predict if individual fields will be infested, so field scouting is essential. More information about managing black cutworms is available a t http://extension.ent ck-cutworms.php

3 Forage Day to cover multiple crops and uses, including bioenergy

June 12, 2013

WEST LAFAYETTE - Purdue Extension will co-host a June 21 field day to teach forage growers and livestock producers about multiple uses of forage. Indiana Forage Day, also co-hosted by the Miami County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Indiana Forage Council, runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will include tours of three diverse farms and a field demonstration site where warmseason grasses are being grown for bioenergy. “Indiana Forage Day this year is going to look at the multiple features and opportunities of forage crops,” said Keith Johnson, Purdue Extension forage specialist. “I think one of the interesting things about the event this year is just realizing that forages are great in terms of soil conservation. We can grow them on marginal soils where corn and soybean production are less able to be profitable. That, and

the multifaceted ways that we can use them by grazing animals, harvesting and then feeding the crop, and then, futuristically, looking at them as an energy source in our day-to-day living.” Forage day participants will meet at Walk by Faith Community Church, 515 S. Chippewa St., R o a n n . Transportation to the farms will be provided. Farm tours: *Flack Farms - This farm has specialized in cash-crop hay for the last 15 years. Farm owners will discuss the production and marketing of hay. They also will demonstrate the use of a new system that converts large, round bales to small, square bales. *Stoltzfus Dairy This dairy farm is unique in that it is a pasture-based grazing system. Farm owners will discuss the transition from harvesting forages to letting cows graze. *Jeremy Sweeten Farm - The Sweeten

farm specializes in making baleage - a process of baling forages at higher moisture content, then converting them to silage. The farm owner will discuss management strategies for successfully creating baleage and, weather permitting, will demonstrate the process. The last stop of the day will be a bioenergy demonstration plot that is part of Purdue’s work with the cenUSA Bioenergy project. The project is a collaboration of seven universities that looks at growing bioenergy grasses, such as switchgrass, on marginal land not suitable for corn and soybean production. The goals of the project are to identify grasses most suitable for bioenergy production on various soil types, and to eventually have the infrastructure in place to convert grasses to cellulosic bioenergy, said Chad Martin, Purdue Extension bioenergy specialist.

“It really boils down to the fact that we have a renewable fuel standard that dictates that we need to look at cellulosic resources for biofuels,” Martin said. “When that day comes when we need to actually start producing, harvesting and marketing this material, we anticipate a case where we have a whole new supply chain to evolve. This project is a starting point to get that process evolved and we are working on multiple sections of the supply chain. “We’re looking at the production phase here at Purdue, as well as the conversion technologies.” The cenUSA project is funded through grants by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of

Food and Agriculture. Other involved universities are Iowa State University and the universities of Illinois-Champaign, Minnesota-Twin Cities, NebraskaLincoln, VermontBurlington and Wisconsin-Madison. Also involved in the research phase is USDA’s Agricultural

Research Service. The fee to attend Indiana Forage Day is $10 per person, with chartered bus transportation and lunch i n c l u d e d . Registration is required by June 18 by contacting Lisa Green at 765-494-4783 o r .

Checks can be made payable to the Indiana Forage Council and mailed to Indiana Forage Council Inc., 915 W. State St., West Lafayette, IN 479072054. Checks also can be brought to the event, but participants must have registered in advance.

Local brothers place at Fishers of Men Legacy Series Roann brothers, CJ Holbrook, 18, a senior at North Manchester Jr./Sr. High School and Benjamin Holbrook, 13, a 7th grader at North Manchester Jr./Sr. High School, took third place and big bass at the Fishers of Men Legacy Series’ first event of the year at Lake Waveland. They competed in a field of 28 competitors, including FLW pro angler, Todd Hollowell from Red Gold PR staff FLW Touring Pro. The event had a three bass limit with the legal limit of 14 inches per bass. The event kicked off at 7 a.m. on April 27, and the teams had to check in at 1 p.m. CJ is an avid fisherman and since his cancer diagnosis in 2008, and a Make-aWish fishing trip to Canada, has participated in the FLW

tournament series including Kentucky Lake and Lake Erie in 2012, with his sponsor, Mike Weaver, owner of Zoomers RV Indiana. CJ remains cancer free and says he wants to live life to its fullest and not let his past illness slow him down. He says life is a gift from God and he intends to live for him and continue to strive to be the best that he can be in every adventure he undertakes. This year, Benjamin joined his brother, CJ, for the Fishers of Men Legacy Series tournament, and on their first team tournament, both cashed in checks for their place spot and Big Bass. They weighed in three legal bass for a total weight of 8.20 pounds, which was beat by 8.76 pounds, and the overall winner was Todd Hollowell with a

Each year, the Library of Congress provides the opportunity for a carefully chosen group of K-12 educators to attend one of its five teacher institutes in Washington, D.C. During the five-day program, participants work with Library education specialists and subject-matter experts to learn effective practices for using primary sources in the classroom, while exploring some of the millions of digitized historical artifacts and documents available on the Library’s website. Educators attending the teacher institutes develop primary-source-based teaching strategies that they can take back to their school districts, apply in the classroom and pass along to colleagues. Teaching with primary sources is a powerful way to help students ask engaged,

Primary sources are the raw materials of history — original documents and objects that were created at the time under study. They are different from secondary sources, accounts or interpretations of events created by someone without firsthand experience. Students working with primary sources become engaged learners while building critical-thinking skills and constructing new knowledge. Teachers working in

Head to Toe salon to re-open after flood damage

by Emily Armentrout When the rains came, and the Wabash River flooded a majority of the downtown area, many local businesses were affected. Head to Toe Salon, owned by 2009 Northfield graduate Morgan Howard, was

one of those businesses. Located at 213 West Fulton Street in downtown Wabash, Head to Toe employees entered the flooded parking lot from the YMCA when the water was up to their chests. “In our parking lot,

the water was a little lower than in the road by about four inches. Once in the shop, the water was still up to my knees,” said Howard, talking of when she entered the shop for the first time after the flooding. “I thought everything I’d worked for in the last three years was gone. I didn’t think we could save anything. We didn’t have flood insurance. We saved more than we thought we would. We have to resurface our nail tables and get new hair stations, but our pedicure chairs

were okay and our chairs for the stations were okay. Our biggest worry was the paper work, and even though we have it all, it’s ruined.” With Head to Toe’s re-opening, scheduled for June 18m Howard said there will be a few new faces working at the salon. Clients will see the salon is bigger as Howard removed multiple walls, as to create a more open shop. Head to Toe will celebrate their grand reopening with a bake sale on Tuesday, June 18.

Autism Support Group of Wabash/Miami County welcomes special guest speaker June 25

The Autism Support Group of Wabash/Miami County has invited Sam Fawley from Logansport, to share about his experiences

in living with autism. Sam, 25, has become a leader in Special Olympics and attends Ivy Tech Community College, majoring in C o m p u t e r

Information Systems. Through various opportunities in Special Olympics, Sam has learned how to make presentations about Special

Olympics, and especially the “R” Word Campaign. Sam is currently employed part-time at PEAK Community Services, drives himself to

1048 N. Cass St., Wabash Open Monday - Sunday • 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. We accept all credit & debit cards as well as checks. Layaway available.

work in his own vehicle, and hopes to become employed fulltime when he receives his associate’s degree. In his leisure time, Sam collects vinyl music, and enjoys listening, composing and playing Rock n’ Roll. Just in March 2013, the CDC estimated that one in 88 school children (1.16 percent) has Autism Spectrum Disorder. By April, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published a report discussing the results of a study on the prevalence of autism based on parent reports. This new study shows that one in 50 school-age children (2 percent) has an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). These studies can be confusing, as they’re written with a scholarly purpose. Why the change? “Let me try to break it down into a few key points;” said Dana Renay, Executive

Director of the Autism Society of Indiana. Data for this study comes from information gathered for 2007 and 2011-12. This data was gathered by contacting households with children by phone, where the parent or guardian was knowledgeable about their children’s health. Based on parent reports, autism was diagnosed in 2 percent of children between the ages of 617. The Researchers who conducted the study have compared data from year to year, and have come the conclusion that the increase in the rate of autism diagnosis (they call it ‘change in prevalence’) could be due to the fact that doctors and other health care professionals understand it better today than they did even two to three years ago. They also think it’s because accessing services is a

bit easier, screening and diagnostic criteria are being used differently, or there are more special education placements in the community. The Autism Support Group will meet on June 25, at The Access Youth Center, 74 West Canal Street, Wabash. From 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. This support group welcomes the public. All parents are welcome, regardless of where your child falls on the spectrum. Along with parents, other interested adults are welcome including but not limited to, grandparents, educators, adults on the spectrum and their spouses. For more information about Autism or the Wabash/Miami County Support Group contact Nicole Hicks, District 9 Ally, Autism Society of Indiana @ 800/6098449 ext. 909 or email

This week, Compass Rose Academy marked a major milestone with the graduation of its first student. The 17-year-old from northern Indiana enrolled at Compass Rose in October 2012. During her time on campus, she not only successfully completed the therapeutic program, but also earned her high school diploma. During a special ceremony around the Compass Rose mosaic, the graduate was given a Compass Rose clay necklace and Bible. Family, friends and program staff gathered in support of the student, and the steps she made to change the course of her life and start off in a new direction. “At Compass Rose, we have a tradition we call the Goodbye

Circle. The graduate looks each staff and student in the face as they say good-bye to each other. This is not a see-ya-later or talkt o - yo u - a g a i n - s o o n . This is, ‘I have loved being a part of your life. I take part of you with me,’” explained Mike Haarer, director of Compass Rose Academy. “This exchanging of goodbyes allows our graduate to be free to move forward with her life and take with her the wisdom shared, the grace given and the truth offered during her time here with us.” Compass Rose Academy is a Christcentered organization committed to enriching the lives of girls through emotional healing, personal development and spiritual growth.

gram to help kids get their ‘fill of food and fun’

Wabash County YMCA joins national anti-hunger effort to serve 4 million meals to kids, in partnership with the Wal-Mart Foundation

To ensure that fewer kids and teens go hungry this summer, the Wabash County YMCA is offering a free Summer Food Program, thanks to a $10,000 grant from the Wal-Mart Foundation. Combining food and fun, the program will provide nutritious meals and snacks, plus activities to keep kids’ minds and bodies active. The program is open to kids aged 18 and under. The Y’s Summer Food Program is part of a national partnership between YMCA of the USA and the Wal-Mart Foundation to address child hunger in communi-

ties. While more than 30 million children in low-income communities receive free or reduced-cost meals during the school year, only 2.3 million of these same kids have access to free meals when school is out. At more than 900 summer food program sites nationwide, the Y will strive to serve 4 million healthy meals and snacks to 100,000 kids this summer. “In order for kids to maintain good health, they need proper nourishment as well as activities to keep their minds and bodies active,” said Amanda JonesLayman, Director of A c a d e m i c Achievement of the Wabash County YMCA. “The YMCA’s Summer Food Program will help kids stay well-nourished, active and ener-

gized, and also provide some relief to families who need support in providing more food when school is out.” Participants in the Wabash County YMCA’s summer food program will receive breakfast and lunch, and enjoy various fun activities. To reach more kids who may be unable to visit the Y, the Wabash County YMCA is taking the summer food program out into the community by partnering with Wabash City Schools we are an Open Summer Food Service Program site. This partnership began in 2010, and we serve breakfast and lunch to approximately 100 children each day. This is approximately 200 meals per day or 1,000 per week. The Y is committed

to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility and is working to ensure that all kids have access to meals, as well as healthy food options, so they can continue to be healthy and thrive when out of school. In partnership with the WalMart Foundation, the Y’s Summer Food Program is part of a year-round effort to fight child hunger. During the school year, the Wabash County YMCA will also serve healthy meals and snacks in its after school program to provide kids with nourishment and academic enrichment.

Dear Editor, 3000 Miles for Peace is a national campaign in which people standing up to say that violence will not have the last word. The Wabash Church of the Brethren will be hosting a walk/bicycle ride on June 18 at 6 p.m. at Paradise Springs to raise money for 3000 Miles of Peace. The 3000 Miles of Peace campaign is in honor of Paul Ziegler, a young man who planned to ride across the country for peace, but never got the chance. Paul was a 19year-old McPherson College student who had a dream. He planned to ride his bicycle across the

county for world peace, collecting contributions and fellow riders along the way. Tragically, he was killed in September 2012, while riding his bicycle. Will you join us to keep Paul’s dream alive? The funds raised will go for proven programs that teach peace to young people, carried out by “On Earth Peace” in communities across the country. Check out their website, For more information on the Wabash event, contact the church at 563-5291 on Wednesday from 14 p.m. or Friday from 9-12 p.m. Karen Odiorne

New feature added to June’s Walk with a Doc June 15 is the date for this month’s Walk with a Doc. The walk will start at the Y at 8 a.m. Co-chair Jan Roland, Wabash City Schools, comments that there are added features to this month’s walk. “We are trying to challenge people a little with this walk. We will have colored markers along the route. When people see the marker, they are encouraged to increase their walking speed a little. When they see the next colored marker, they will slow back to their original pace.” This is called interval

training and is used to up peoples’ cardiovascular rates. This increase helps the person focus on a better ‘workout’ on this walk. Wabash’s Walk with a Doc is one of the best in Indiana. The goal is to become the best WWAD. This can be accomplished by increasing the amount of people who participate. “There were about 30 people who did the Walk in May. We are hoping for 60 or more this month,” said Roland. This month, the walk is sponsored again by Wabash

MPI/Carver. They are providing a snack and water to each walker. Also, TAS bike shop is having the sign up sheet for people who walk three of the walks this year. Those names will be entered in a drawing for a $25 gift card from Subway. “It would be great for everyone who walked in May to bring one other person with them to the June walk,” stated Roland. Doctors will be available at the walk to talk to people about a walking program that fits their needs.

Northfield Norsemen state bound

by Gary Andrews The Northfield baseball team took another step forward in pursuing the defense of their state title from a year ago, by winning the Kokomo semi-state game Saturday. On the arm of Ryan Keaffaber and some early offense the Norse grounded the Adams Central Flying Jets 5-1. Being the visitors, the Norse wanted to get a good start and did just that in the first inning. Collin Dawes led off with a single and was sacrificed to second on an Adam Roser bunt. Ryan Keaffaber then singled home Dawes to give the Norse an early 1-0 lead. Keaffaber was then picked off first. In the top of the second, the Norse would add another run. Shane Vigar singled and was the second victim being picked off. The Norse would pick Vigar up however with Joseph Ross

singling, followed by Andy Maggart reaching on an error. Following the error, an infield fly was dropped by the Flying Jets with Ross advancing to third. Dallas Hovey then drove in the second Norse run with a single as Northfield led 20 after two. Northfield would open things up in the third. Adam Roser would get things started with a single and was followed by a Ryan Keaffaber rbi double to make it 3-0. Andy Roser would then single home Keaffaber to go up 4-0, but the Norse were not done. With Roser advancing to third on a steal, Andy Maggart laced a single to bring home Roser to increase the Northfield lead to 5-0. Adams Central would make some noise in the third, collecting their first hit off Keaffaber and eventually loading the bases with two outs, before a ground ball

NORTHFIELD NORSE BASEBALL won the semi-state game against Adams Central Saturday, 5-1. They are headed to Victory Field in Indianapolis this Saturday, June 15 to defend their state title against South Spencer at 4 p.m. (photo by Gary Andrews) got the Norse out of the inning still leading 5-0. Neither team would garner a hit in the fourth or fifth innings as Keaffaber continued to dominate and the Norse bats went silent. In the top of the sixth, Maggart collected his second hit, leading off the inning with a single. Bryce Kendall put down the sac bunt to move

pinch runner Austin Curless, but again the Norse offense stalled. The Flying Jets finally got to Keaffaber in the bottom of the inning for a run with a single and a two out double. Trying to stretch the double to a triple, center fielder Drake Richter fired a shot to shortstop Adam Roser, who relayed the throw to his brother Andy at third to tag the run-

ner for the third out. Andy Roser would hit a two out single in the seventh and steal second, but a strike out ended the inning and put the Norse three outs from a return trip to Victory Field and the state

championship game. Ryan Keaffaber took things into his own hands in the seventh, striking out the first batter, walking the second before striking out the final two. Keaffaber picked up the win, going seven

innings, allowing one run on three hits and striking out 10. Northfield

G UAT E M A L A MISSION TRIP: The Liberty Mills Church of the Brethren will send out a mission team to Guatemala during the week of June 18-26. Team members include: Kelly Buetler, Jeff Walters, Julie

June 12, 2013

Walters, Julie Baxter, Megan Baxter, Debbie Barrett, Lori Conley, Ann Haupert, Brent Reed, Stacey Reed, and Mike Frantz. This will make the third year the team has visited the same church in Guatemala, which sits outside the city of Panajachel. The first year the team helped clean up storm damage and considered ways they could help in the future. One need was for classrooms since the only resources available were outside

of the building divided by corrugated metal. The second year the team began the construction phase by digging footers, pouring concrete and laying some block. They also painted the front side of the church and built a lean to so that a lady wouldn’t have to cook in the rain. This year the plan is to get more of the walls up as well doing some needed repair work at an orphanage outside of Guatemala City.

The first week of the experience was marked by families enjoying some quality time together as they explored God’s Word and rocked out to cool music. There were also plenty of fun new activities to discover during “Choose Your Own Adventure” as families moved through different stations like

Tournament Games, The Royal Theatre, Artists’ Gallery, Palace Play for Preschoolers, King’s Kitchen, and Imagination Station. In the Servants’ Quarters, families are raising money; collecting and packaging t-shirts for a ministry in Anderson, South Carolina called The Lot Project. This

inner-city mission is led by Wabash native, Andy Gibson. This VBS is different than most because kids and parents get to participate together and have a meaningful shared experience that will hopefully create more opportunities for faith conversations in the family. The focus of this program is helping kids

Wabash Middle School presents Case Closed...? in Wabash County Courthouse Dear Editor, On May 10, Wabash Middle School 6th grade students took a field trip to the Wabash County Courthouse. A cast of 22 students performed the play, Case Closed...?, written by sixth grade student, Lydia Ridge. The original story started as an assignment for Mrs. Unger’s

Who Did It? class- the theme being a murder mystery. At the courthouse, the actors and prop team were able to experience putting on a play in an actual courtroom setting. 125 students and staff members were in attendance. They witnessed the drama unfold from inside the courtroom.

Some of the highlights were, Mallory Hipskind, the judge in Case Closed…?, was allowed to enter thru the Judge’s Chamber; the jury sat in the jury’s box; and the witness, Hannah Hawkins, sat in the witness’s chair. Exhibits were displayed by projector. The entire production was video-

Wabash County YMCA CEO thanks supporters Dear Editor, Several months ago, you ran a story about the Y’s matching gift campaign to reduce debt. The debt was a result of unforeseen challenges during the construction of the Y. The challenge grant committed to match any debt reduction gifts, dollar for dollar, up to $500,000. I wanted to share the outcome of this effort. Over the last 12 months, our community has invested generously in the strength and sustainability of our Y. The matching gift challenge provided a tremendous opportunity to share stories of what our young Y is doing today and the vision of what our Y can be in the future. Those messages resonated with many dif-

ferent people from very different backgrounds, each with a story of their own. Four 5-dollar bills and note from an 11-yearold girl reminded me that the meaningfulness of a gift is not based on the amount but the heart in which the gift was given. A man in the last days of his life made a donation because he was thrilled to have a Y in Wabash and have so many people engaged in “good activities.” A woman who has lived her life caring for others entrusted her estate to the Y to carry on her legacy. While each story was unique, a common thread exists between the people who supported this effort. They share a belief that a strong Y is good for all people

who call Wabash County home. I am pleased to report that as of our deadline, April 30, 2013, we had received gifts to fully fund the $500,000 match. In total, $1.345 million in gifts and pledges were provided. This allowed the Y to reduce the remaining debt load from $2,345,241 to $996,781 since April of 2012. While we have made major progress toward reducing our debt, there is still work to be done. The long-term strength and sustainability of the Y is directly related to becoming debt free and our hope is to achieve this by the end of 2014. Accomplishing this goal will allow additional time, energy and financial

resources to be invested in developing the potential of kids, improving health and well being and supporting our neighbors in need. Becoming debt free will also ensure our ability to maintain first class facilities and remain a force for good in Wabash County for decades to come.

I want to thank everyone who helped us take full advantage of the matching gift. On behalf of the children, adults and families benefiting from our Y, thank you!

Rough Mississinewa waters lead to boat capsizing

I n d i a n a Conservation Officers investigated a boat accident on Mississinewa Reservoir on May 28, which occurred at 2 p.m. Byron L. Blue, 74, Kokomo, was operating his 16’ Jon Boat near the Pearson Mill boat ramp when his boat suddenly began taking on water. Blue noticed the waves were coming in over the stern of his boat and the boat anchor he had attached to the stern was scooping water into his boat as well. When Blue went to the rear of the boat to bring in the anchor the boat immediately swamped and capsized throwing him into the water. Blue had a life jack-

et in the boat but was not wearing it and the wind blew the life jacket away before he could grab it. Blue swam 75 yards in the turbulent water to shore as his boat, which was still partially afloat was swept away. Officer Jerry Hoerdt with the assistance of Mississinewa Reservoir personnel recovered the boat and towed it back to shore. I n d i a n a Conservation Officers strongly encourage all boat occupants to wear their life jackets at all times. To learn more about life jacket use and safe boating tips please visit

March of Dimes says thank you

EMMANUEL CHRISTIAN SCHOOL, a ministry of Emmanuel Free Will Baptist Church, graduated its 22nd class on May 25, at 1 p.m. The eight graduates included Weston Doyle, Wesley Gaunt, Koren Marsh, Austin O’Dell, Andrew Porter, Sara Real, Maverick Rish, and Tyler Samuel. Special Music was presented by Emily Daniel, a freshman at Emmanuel Christian School. The Salutatorian Address was delivered by Sara Real. She challenged her fellow seniors to place a priority on making a positive difference in the lives of others over other successes that they might seek. The Valedictorian Address was delivered by Weston Doyle. He thanked parents, teachers and coaches for the time that they had invested in the lives of the seniors. He encouraged the seniors to never forget that God had brought them to where they were and that they should have courage to stand and do whatever He has planned for them. Former Principal Tim Dederick presented the baccalaureate address. He emphasized to the 2013 graduates that talk is cheap, walk the talk; life is short, live for what matters; freedom is costly, pay the price, and forgiveness is divine, to err is human. The graduates were presented by Principal Debbie Bowman and the diplomas were conferred by Pastor Scott Real, administrator.
