Proudly Serving Wabash County Since 1977

Wabash Farmers Market continues growth with 2012 season by Brent Swan For the past several years, the Wabash Farmers Market has seen an increase in the amount of vendors and the number of visitors that frequent the weekly event. Jill Ross, Wabash County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau T o u r i s m Coordinator said 2012 is shaping up to be no exception. “Coming into this year, we had lost a couple of vendors from prior years due to various reasons,” Ross said. “But at the first market we had

this year, we picked up two new additions the day of the event. As of June 6, we have 27 vendors at the Farmers Market.” The Farmers Market, a Wabash Marketplace Inc. project, features booths that offer anything from small crafts to organic produce. “We are still going to be open every Saturday throughout the summer,” Ross said. “This year, we have changed the hours to 8 a.m. to noon.” Also new to this year’s market is the

ban on early sales. “One of the problems we have had in years past was that when the market officially opened at 9 a.m., some of the booths had sold out of their produce,” Ross explained. “This year, no sales are allowed until we set off the bullhorn at 8 a.m.” With this year’s drought-like conditions, Ross said that some producers might be forced to rely more heavily on purchased produce. “We do not stop our vendors from buying from the co-

Blessings in a Backpack to hold fundraising carnival June 24 at the YMCA by Karlee Marshall Blessings in a Backpack, a newly formed, not for profit organization directed towards kids who qualify for the free or reduced lunch program at school, will now provide local children with a backpack full of food to take home over the weekend every Friday during the school year. The program will be starting the first Friday of the 2012 – 2013 school year, This year, the organization will be targeting three local elementary schools in the county; O.J. Neighbors, Metro North, and S o u t h w o o d Elementary. “What this program entails, is that for $80, we can send one child home with a backpack full of food for the weekend, for the entire 38-week school year,” Jenny Wilson, Blessings in a Backpack coordinator said. “Since we are just getting started,

we are in the fundraising portion of the program now so that we can be prepared for the coming school year.” On June 24, from 5 to 8 p.m., there will be a fundraising carnival located at the Wabash County YMCA. A silent auction will be held, as well as a freewill donation hog roast, along with various carnival games and prizes. “This is a charity that not only benefits local grocers, but also benefits local kids and their families,” Wilson stated. A few of the items that are being auctioned off are tickets to a Cubs and Reds game, donated by Mutual Bank, tickets to a Tincaps game, donated by Feldermans, a tree, donated by Hoffman Nursery, and a Keurig Coffee Maker, donated by EcoWater. Blessings in a Backpack is asking for help from the com-

munity to meet their goal of reaching all of the kids possible for this program. “601 kids qualify for this program, and it would be amazing to reach all of them, although I’m not sure that’s feasible right now,” Wilson explained. “I’d like to at least reach 400, but we can’t reach any without the help and support of the community. Right now we are at about 235 kids.” Blessings in a Backpack would like to thank the YMCA, Bechtolds Grocery, Bachelor Creek and Wabash Friends Churches, Mutual Bank, Feldermans, Hoffman Nursery, EcoWater, and anyone who has kindly donated to help the program so far, If anyone would like to donate to Blessings in a Backpack, please make checks out to Blessings in a Backpack c/o Jenny Wilson, 499 S. 475 W.

ops or sustainable farms from outside the area, we just want to know where they come from,” Ross said. “We do, however, require that every vendor note where they got their goods from. “If a vendor is selling a pineapple, I can assume it didn’t come from Wabash,” Ross continued. “But, I still want to know where it came from. Personally, I prefer places that leave no carbon footprint, so I want to make sure that is what I get when I shop for myself; and everyone that comes to our market deserves to know where the produce they are buying is coming from.” This year, as in years past, the Farmers Market will be hosted on Miami Street on four dates: July 7, Aug. 18, Sept. 15, and Oct. 20. “Customers really like the Miami Street setup as it has a really good flow to it,” Ross explained. “The vendors this year can choose to use either the Miami Street location or the parking lot east of the Honeywell on those dates if they so choose.” In the future, Ross is contemplating the possibility of adding a sidewalk chalk contest for the kids that attend the market. “The market is a great atmosphere overall and a lot of fun to be around,” Ross said. “We want to ensure that is a feeling shared by anyone attending.”

THE WABASH FARMERS MARKET has seen a steady increase in numbers over the past several years. Each Saturday, it is estimated that over 200 people attend the event (photos on right). (photos by Jill Ross)

Another addition to this year’s market is the creation of a M a rk e t p l a c e Member Spotlight. The spotlight will allow a Wabash M a rk e t p l a c e Business a booth at that week’s Farmers Market so they can reach out those attending. “Part of this being a Wabash Marketplace program is encouraging continued pedestrian traffic in our historic downtown,” Wabash County CVB Executive Director Christine Flohr said. “With the completion of the City StreetScape project, and this partnership with the City Of Wabash, the Farmers Market is a prime example that you can do anything downtown.” Ample parking is available in the areas around the Farmers Market each Saturday, including handicapped parking which is accessible along Market Street in front of the Honeywell Center. To find out more information about the market, or to become a vendor, contact Ross at the CVB at 260-563-7171. The Wabash Farmers Market can also be found on Facebook and Twitter. “We require vendors to sign on for either a full season or half season if they would like to be included,” Ross said. “It works out to be $5 per week, which we feel is a reasonable rate for anyone interested.”

Celebrating and supporting fathers

by Bill Barrows More than a century ago, Sonora Louis Smart Dodd aspired to create a holiday to honor fathers. The daughter of a single father and Civil War veteran was inspired by a Mother’s Day sermon and wondered why there was no holiday for fathers. After securing support from ministers in Spokane, Wash., her

idea came to fruition with the first Father’s Day celebration at the Spokane YMCA on June 19, 1910. On June 17, the Wabash County YMCA joins the nation in celebrating Father’s Day and recognizing the impact fathers and adult male role models make in children’s lives. Nationally, one out of three children lives in a home without their biological father, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. And, societal factors such as unemployment, work-life balance or a lack of resources can affect fathers’ ability to seek support in strengthening their parenting skills and more fully engaging in the lives of their children. The Y remains dedicated to providing resources and opportunities for fathers to further involve themselves in the well being and develop-

ment of their children. “As a nonprofit committed to strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y believes that strong family bonds are a foundation of strong communities, and we work to help all families to learn, grow and thrive,” said Bill Barrows, Senior Program Director of the Wabash County YMCA. “Today, Father’s Day reminds us why it’s important to recognize fathers and provide them with the support they need to be the best parents and caregivers they can be.” Studies show that children with close relationships with their fathers and other adult male role models have more self-confidence and exhibit less depres-

sion, perform better academically and engage in significantly less drug and alcohol use. There are a variety of programs at the Wabash County YMCA that foster understanding and companionship between children and their fathers – and moms – such as being involved in a youth sports program, Y Summer

Central, spending time with our kids at the YMCA, joining an aquatics activity and including our children or becoming a YMCA volunteer. To learn more about programs and activities available at the Wabash County YMCA, contact us at 260-5639622, visit our website at or check us out on Facebook.

Healthier Wabash committee formed; participating in Riverwalk extension opening June 14

The data is concerning. As of 2011, from the 92 counties in the state, Wabash County ranks 52nd overall in health related issues. In the area of health behaviors, Wabash County ranks 76th. Health behaviors include such things as adult smoking, adult obesity, excessive drinking, motor vehicle crashes, and access to fresh fruits and vegetables, just to name a few. “Our medical providers sometimes fight an uphill battle to get people to change their habits. The reality is these poor habits not only lead to a decline in health, but also impact our community as a whole,” Mayor R o b e r t Vanlandingham said of the committee’s start. “So rather than sitting back and watching it happen, a group of motivated people decided to act. They came together to look at the issues and

started a movement to make Wabash a better place in which to live.” The Healthier Wabash Initiative formed in September 2011 to focus on health needs in the city of Wabash. The longterm plan is to work outward and cover the entire county. “We began meeting monthly to form a vision and focus for our initiative,” explained committee chairperson Jan Roland. “Our initial goals were to increase awareness of the community in behavioral health issues, while working toward increased exercise, improved diet and decreased smoking.” The group felt that the first focus would be to get people to become active by walking. It does not cost anything to walk and with places such as the Wabash Riverwalk Trail, the Cultural Trail, the Charley Creek

Plant Close Out Sale! Perennials & Shrubs, Vegetable & Flowering Plants, Hanging Baskets and Geraniums

Gardens and the Charley Creek Trail, the group felt like the city was rich with areas that make walking very appealing. The Ribbon Cutting of the Wabash Riverwalk Trail extension was chosen as the ideal place to kick-off the committee’s initiative. “Our group will take part in the ribbon cutting and the walk,” Roland said. “Our goal is have people walk from various locations coming to the ribbon cutting area and then participate in an all-city walk at that time.” Committee members say that although walking is the first focus, their concerns are many. The county’s adult obesity rate is 31 percent. Only 33 percent of our population has access to healthy foods. Because many of our families live below the poverty level or have a low-income job, many rely on food

pantries and our local soup kitchen. Year two of the committee’s work will focus on reaching adults in the community to help them make healthier food choices. They have already contacted three chefs from nonfast food restaurants in town who are willing to work on marking healthy choices on their menus and featuring healthy choices. Additional thoughts are special newspapers sections and the distribution of brochures containing nutritional information. “The Healthier Wabash Initiative is just extension of what we in Wabash have in our community DNA,” Roland said. “Our group is just the start of Wabash being a model city of healthy living not only in Indiana but in the entire United States.” The group is composed of: Jan Roland, Chief Business Officer,

Wabash City Schools, Committee Chair; James Bain, MD, local family physician, American Health Network; Beverly Ferry, Director of Living Well in Wabash Co [formerly the Wabash Co Council on Aging]; Clint Kugler, Director Wabash

County YMCA; Christina Doan, LPN and Wellness Coach, American Health Network; Kerri Mattern, Director of Marketing and Physician Recruitment for Wabash County Hospital; Kim Pinkerton, President, Wabash Chamber of


Commerce; Bill Konyha, President, E c o n o m i c Development Group of Wabash County; Mary Delaney, Director of Employer Health, American Health Network; and Robert Va n l a n d i n g h a m , Mayor of the City of Wabash.

Relations, Greg Fennig. “This is an easy, responsible solution for our customers interested in lowering their home’s electricity usage and managing their costs.” Refrigerators and standalone freezers must be in working condition and measure between 10 and 30 cubic feet in size. Participants should receive $30 incentive checks within four to six weeks after appliance pickup. “The refrigerator recycling program is one of a number of programs we’re offering to make saving energy and money easy for our customers,” said Duke Energy Indiana, President Doug Esamann. “It’s part of a statewide effort to make our state more energy efficient.” Customers of participating Indiana electric companies, including Duke Energy, Hoosier

Energy, Indiana Michigan Power, Indianapolis Power & Light Company, Vectren Energy Delivery and Wabash Valley Power Association, are encouraged to sign-up for the program. To date, over 18,000 units have been recycled throughout the state of Indiana, resulting in approximately 18,100,000 kilowatthours. Typically kept in garages or basements, these extra refrigerators and freezers are often so old and waste so much energy that they require as much as three times more energy than newer, more energy-efficient units. JACO’s new Indianapolis facility serves more than one purpose. In addition to converting old, inefficient appliances into recyclable materials, it safely extracts and neutralizes toxic substances. This includes mercury in

thermostats, oils and foam insulation that can emit into the ozone-eating gases when exposed to air. Also, old units will be safely converted into recyclable materials that are re-purposed into numerous types of new products, ranging from mobile phones to construction materials. Indiana residents interested in participating in the program can call their local utility or visit their local utility website for more information.

Meters are spinning and electricity is being wasted as old, energy-guzzling refrigerators operate in homes across Indiana. Duke Energy is joining Indianapolis Power & Light Company (IPL) and several other utilities across the state to offer customers $30 and free pick-up and removal of their old refrigerators and freezers. The utilities have partnered with JACO Environmental, a national appliance recycler, to pick up the old units and “demanufacture” them at a newly opened Indianapolis facility. “Response to IPL’s Ditch the Fridge program has been strong as customers realize that the benefit of that additional cold storage is not worth the cost in either money or energy use,” said IPL Vice President of C o m m u n i t y

My wife took a photo of me holding The Acorn by the Roann Bridge. I plan to send the editor an article about our visit to Roann and the purpose that brought us there.

I hope to contact Mr. Woodward when we get back to California later in June to see if I might be able to purchase some material about the town of Roann and its history. We congratulate the community of Roann for maintaining historical records from so many years ago. I’m sure that one day, our daughter Roann’s three children will want to travel to Roann to find the genesis of their mother’s name.

New festival regulations issued by state

The stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair last August has led officials to review and enforce new inspection regulations and propose new rules regarding all festivals. The Wabash County Convention and Visitors Bureau will host a meeting on June 27, at 5:30 p.m., at the Honeywell Center in order to give local festival organizers

the opportunity to learn about the new regulations. The State Fire Marshal’s Office, a division of the Indiana Department of Homeland Security, is reaching out to every place where there might be an outdoor festival or event to provide information about regulations for using outdoor stage equipment and temporary stages.

Indiana State Festival Association Vice President, Gale Gerber, will explain the new regulations and permits now being required. “It is imperative that the tourism office provide a forum for which all of the Wabash County festival organizers can learn how to stay compliant with the new regulations being mandated by the state,” said Christine Flohr, executive direc-

tor of tourism for Wabash County. Every festival, fair and similar event must have an amusement entertainment permit issued by the State Fire Marshal’s Office before the event can open. The state of Indiana now requires any event that has a stage or rigging for lights and sound, to submit a Festival Contingency Plan. The plan covers how a

festival will operate should an emergency situation arise. The plan includes topics from severe weather, medical emergencies, and even hazardous materials. Seven people – including members of the audience and workers – died after a stage at the Indiana State Fair collapsed during a storm before a Sugarland concert. Dozens of others were injured.

Lagro Township to discuss Lincolnville Fire Department during June 14 meeting Andy DeLong, Lagro Township Trustee and Ralph Ranck, member of the Lagro Township Advisory Board, will hold a public meeting June 14, 7 p.m., at the Lincolnville Fire Station, to discuss the



long-term plan of the Lincolnville Fire Department. The public is encouraged to attend this informational meeting. For more information, contact Ranck at 260-774-3372.

Honeywell house to honor Hoosier Culver’s plans to host a tribute to yesteryear while songwriters with Jazz on the Lawn tribute raising funds for Red Cross

JEREMY WAYMAN, co-owner of Culver’s, is pictured with two Chevy Corvettes at their annual car show. This year, the show will be held on June 16, 4-8:30 p.m. (photo provided)

C u l v e r ’ s Restaurant, Wabash, is excited to announce the Fourth Annual Culver’s Car Show to be held on June 16. It will be held at Culver’s, 1321 N. Cass St., from 4-8:30 p.m. An addition to this year’s show is a motorcycle division with awards. “We have had a lot of inquiries about motorcycles for the show and decided to add them to this year’s event,” stated Dawn Wayman, owner of Culver’s. “We will have the cars and trucks judged together and then the motorcycles judged separately.” This year’s event features several corporate sponsors with all proceeds going to American Red Cross. Corporate sponsors for this charity event are: Beacon Credit Union, Culver’s,

Nate’s Lawncare, O’Reilly’s Auto Parts, Todd Adams/State Farm Insurance, Wabash True Value Hardware/Just Ask Rental, Treasured Dreams Cottage and The Paper of Wabash County. Many of these businesses will be donating prizes as giveaways to be awarded to participants and spectators throughout the day. The Culver’s Car Show has also invited Relay for Life to come out and raise money for cancer research. In honor of the event, Culver’s will be featuring many specials that day for the spectators and guests including $1 old-fashioned soda and root beer floats, and the Culver’s team members will be dressed up in their ‘oldies’ fashions. “We want to create an entire experience

for the car show,” says Wayman. “We encourage the whole community to come out and to enjoy not only the spectacular vehicles that will be there, but to be taken back to the days of yesteryear. My mom is always talking about the oldfashioned chocolate sodas and root beer floats, the way they dressed back in the 50’s and 60’s, and the music of that time period. “Our show participants have put a lot of heart, soul and hard work into their vehicles and are proud to show them off which makes it a great experience for the spectators,” she continued. The first 25 entrants for the car show will receive an event T-shirt with the first 50 will receive a commemorative dash plaque.

The Honeywell House in Wabash will present its secondannual fundraising event, Jazz on the Lawn, featuring the I n d i a n a p o l i s Symphony Orchestra on Aug. 2. The “Back Home Again in Indiana” outdoor concert will feature a tribute honoring Indiana-born songwriters Cole Porter and Hoagy Carmichael. Lead sponsors First Merchants Bank and Wabash Electric present the event. The Indianapolis Jazz Orchestra includes a 15-piece band and two vocalists. The group will showcase Porter and Carmichael’s greatest hits including “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “Georgia on My Mind,” “Night and Day,” “Heart and Soul,” “Begin the Beguine,” “Stardust,” and “I Get A Kick Out of You.” Indianapolis Jazz Orchestra performances have earned a reputation for being both entertaining as well as having outstanding general-audience appeal. Their concerts are crafted to create a special rapport between

The Firehouse presents Firehouse Follies, “A Night of Historic Entertainment”

If you lived in Wabash County 120 years ago, what would you do for fun? Before movies, television, and YouTube, you might come to the local opera house for entertainment and edification. To revive this experience, The Firehouse, in partnership with the North Manchester Center for History, will present The Firehouse

Follies, “A Night of H i s t o r i c Entertainment” on Father’s Day, June 17, 7 p.m., at the Firehouse Theater, 108 E. Main Street. The Firehouse Follies is a unique production that you will never see anywhere else. Acts will be based on performances actually held at the North Manchester Opera House years ago, but with a con-

temporary feel. Jim Smith will recite “Casey at the Bat.” Mac McKinley will present James Whitcomb Riley poems—the beloved Hoosier poet actually appeared at the NM Opera House several times. There will be a dog act inspired by the live bloodhounds that were often used in productions of the popular Uncle Tom’s Cabin play in the 19th century.

Other acts include folk music of the era, a ukulele band, Ed “Strangler” Lewis the Wrestler, and a gospel choir. The audience will get to boo the villain and sigh over the heroine in “Dolly’s Dilemma or Who Will Pay the Money for the Mortgage on the Farm?,” a contemporary melodrama written by Charles and Dagny Boebel. Dave Lawrenz will serve as emcee.

Fallen MC to host charity ride June 16 The Fallen MC will host a charity ride for Wabash County food pantries on June 16. Registration will be from 11 to 11:45 a.m. at Brandt’s Harley Davidson. First bike out will leave at noon, and last bike in will arrive at 4:30 p.m. The ride will consist of a long ride with four stops including a dinner stop in Syracuse at the “Down Under Bar and Grill.” The ride will be 100-miles round trip. Door prizes and raffle will be available. The cost is $10 per rider and $5 per passenger. Donate any non-perishable item and get $1 off per item donated. Cash donations are welcome.

Pre-K class must be 4 by Aug. 1. 3 yr. old class must be 3 by Aug. 1


Creative opportunities to learn new skills in a Christian environment.

Civic Band will present a sidewalk concert outside the Firehouse an hour before the Follies begin. Tickets were available starting June 5 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily at the Center for History, 122 W. Main Street (the former Oppenheim’s Store). Presale tickets are recommended for this one-time-only performance, as seating is limited. The acts described here give a flavor of the many types of entertainment the Opera House used to present 100 to 120 years ago. Opera houses were by no means just venues for Grand Opera and classical music. During its heyday, the NM Opera House hosted

Citizen’s tip leads to drug arrest Recently, a joint criminal investigation by Fulton County Sheriff ’s Deputy Travis Heishman and Indiana State Trooper Ron Fisher led to the arrests of three men. The officers initiated an investigation after receiving a citizen’s tip that marijuana plants were allegedly being grown at 3440 Strawberry Lane, Rochester. During the course of the investigation, officers developed probable cause for a Fulton Circuit Court search warrant. When officers executed the warrant, they allegedly found 60 marijuana plants in various stages of growth, a misdemeanor amount of processed marijuana, and drug paraphernalia. The property owner, Ernest J. Westerhoff Sr. 42, was arrested and incarcerated in the Fulton County Jail to face a class D felony charge for cultivating marijuana. He also faces misdemeanor charges for maintaining a

common nuisance and possession of marijuana under 30 grams. While executing the search warrant, officers found two men wanted on criminal arrest warrants. Ernest J. Westerhoff Jr., 22, Rochester, was arrested on an Elkhart County arrest warrant for resisting law enforcement and false informing. James M. Rutt, 37, Rolling Prairie, was arrested on a Noble County arrest warrant for receiving stolen property and failure to provide financial responsibility.

NORSE WALK-OFF THEIR WAY TO VICTORY FIELD Northfield 5 Hebron 4 Northfield’s ninth-inning surge wins semistate title

By J.D. Sparks SOUTH BEND—“It was the stuff of legends” was how Northfield Head Baseball Coach described Tanner Chamberlain’s ninth-inning, game-tying single during the semistate game at Coveleski Stadium Saturday. Chamberlain’s RBI base knock set the stage for a Northfield walkoff win, 5-4, over Hebron at the South Bend Clay Semistate. With runners at the corners, two outs in the inning and Chamberlain down to his final strike, he singled on a 1-2 count to drive home pinch runner Tanner Wilcox. “(Chamberlain) just stayed fo-

cused and hit his pitch and then momentum swung our way,” Uggen said. After Chamberlain’s base hit, Andy Roser drew a walk to load the bases. Ryan Keaffaber then chopped a one-hopper between first and second that could not be fielded cleanly. Adam Roser scored from third, giving the Keaffaber his second walk-off base hit of the IHSAA state tournament series this season. “These kids have really overcome some major obstacles, coming from behind three times in the tournament,” Uggen said. “We battled until the end. I’m really proud of these kids.” Although the Norse were winners in the end, the team made it tough on themselves. Over the first four innings, the Norse scored three runs, but left 13 runners on base. Adam Roser’s two-out double in the second scored a pair of runs, putting the Norse up 2-0.

Colts Fan Fest to visit Wabash June 14

On June 14 from 5-7 p.m. the Indianapolis Colts will host a Fan Fest at the Honeywell Center in Wabash. The fest will feature a free community concert by The Hunter Smith Band. The Indiana Corn Marketing Council, Indiana Soybean Alliance and American Family Insurance sponsor Colts Fan Fests. Colts Fan Fests will make seven stops around the State of Indiana Colts Fan Fest elements include live music and autographs from Colts players and cheerleaders. Fans may register to win Colts tickets, test skills in the Play 60 zone, pick up free Colts giveaways, sign up for one of the Official Colts Fan Clubs, and play on the Colts interactive inflatables. Fans can also experience “Colts In Motion”, the team’s traveling museum. “Colts In Motion” is the club’s 42-foot trailer that is the centerpiece in the Colts’ regional outreach marketing effort. It is equipped with interactive videos and touch screens, a quarterback challenge football toss, Lucas Oil Stadium features and a behind-the-scenes look at the entire Indianapolis Colts organization. “Colts Fan Fest is a way to show appreciation for our fans and their continued support,” said Pete Ward, Chief Operating Officer. “We want to give back to our fans across the state through free events like Fan Fest. Our fans are an integral part of our organization, and we want them to have personal access to the team they cheer for each weekend throughout the NFL season.” Colts Fan Fest is also featuring former Colt Punter, Hunter Smith. He now brings his talent to the music stage instead of the football field. The Hunter Smith Band released their newest album “Green” on iTunes in April.

Johnson drafted by ChiSox

In the ninth round of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player draft, the Chicago White Sox drafted Park Tudor graduate Micah Johnson. Johnson, son of North Manchester natives Tanya Airgood Johnson and Harold Johnson, recently finished his junior year of college at Indiana University as a second baseman. The White Sox chose him 291st overall. In 133 games over three seasons at IU, Johnson batted .308 with 15 home runs, 86 RBIs and 32 stolen bases in 40 attempts. He played just 24 games his junior season after missing two months thanks to right elbow surgery.

Hebron got to Keaffaber, the Norse starting pitcher, for three runs in the top of the third to take a brief 3-2 lead. Hunter Wells singled with the bases loaded in the bottom of the frame to knot the score at 3-3. “We had so many chances to take control of this game and each time (Hebron’s starting pitcher) Kyle Hayes got a big strikeout to get out of the jam,” Uggen said. “We left 17 runners on base and six of our 14 strikeouts were with men in scoring position.” After the fourth, both pitchers settled down until the bottom of the eighth inning when the Norse loaded the bases, but failed to score a run. “I really thought we’d get the job done in the eighth, but once again, (Hebron reliever) Damon Wallace got a strikeout when he needed it,” Uggen said. “It was frustrating and stressful, but the kids didn’t quit.” Hebron plated a run in the top of the ninth and was a strike away from a trip to Victory Field in Indianapolis, but Chamberlain’s two-strike single rewrote history. Keaffaber improved to 15-0 on

THE NORTHFIELD NORSEMEN won the 2012 North Semistate title on June 9 after defeating Hebron 5-4 at South Bend Clay’s Coveleski Stadium. Ryan Keaffaber collected the game-winning RBI on an infield single in the bottom of the ninth inning. The Norse will play Evansville Mater Dei in the state finals at Victory Field in Indianapolis on June 16 at 4 p.m. (photo by Gary Andrews) the season. He struck out nine batters in nine innings of work. He allowed four runs on eight hits and a walk. “Ryan pitched a great game,” Uggen said. “They just managed to put together a little string of hits in the third, but Ryan retired 17 of the next 18 batters, including 15 in a row at one point to keep us in it” Chamberlain finished the game 2-for-5 with an RBI and a walk.
