City of Wabash, Parks and Recreation City Council passes Board complete Riverwalk Extension Project anti-nepotism

by Danielle Swan After six years of discussion, and many months of grant writing and construction, the City of Wabash and the Parks and Recreation Board has finally completed the extension to the Riverwalk. A ribboncutting event was held June 14, on the new trail underneath the Wabash Street Bridge, with many community members in attendance. With the new extension, the City of Wabash may now boast that it contains four miles’ worth of trail system. The Riverwalk trail extension was funded largely by a $1 million grant from the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), which is a testament to the Department’s willingness to work with the City on this project. “When I first got in office, there was a comment made to me that was always kind of interesting: ‘You never get anything out of the railroad or INDOT.’ I always found that interesting because I’ve had absolutely no problems with the railroad and very, very few problems with INDOT,” said Mayor Bob Vanlandingham. “When I have needed something, we sat down and talked and worked things out and I have found INDOT to be a good partner.”

by Danielle Swan The June 11 meeting of Wabash City Council began with the first reading of a petition to vacate a portion of Daniels Street between Orchard Street and Branch Street. Attorney Larry Thrush presented the request for two of the adjoining landowners, Sharon Vanlandingham and Linda Mclaughlin, who were in attendance at the meeting. Notice of the potential vacation was sent to adjoining landowners via certified mail and published in the newspaper, as per statutory requirements. Thrush reported that none of the four adjoining landowners expressed negativity toward the prospect of vacating the street. The vacation passed the first reading and will be revisited at a later meeting. Council members held a second reading of Special Ordinance #1, which regards construction work resulting in damage to city streets. Essentially, this ordinance serves to put on paper what has already been in practice for some time. As per the ordinance, the City will ask contractors to make repairs to any cuts they make on city streets. If the contractor fails to make the repair, the City will make the repair at a reasonable rate. This ordinance passed unanimously. General Ordinance #6 went through a first reading. This ordinance lays out a more concrete framework for the regula-

tion of handicapped parking. At the present time, the City does not have a set plan on issuing handicapped parking signs for residential or commercial locations. The ordinance passed the first reading and will be revisited at a later meeting. State legislature has issued a mandate to all local government to pass an antinepotism resolution or ordinance by July 1. This law is intended to keep local government employees from being under direct supervision of a relative. The State laid out the minimum requirements that the resolution or ordinance must include. City Attorney Doug Lehman felt it would be more appropriate to pass a resolution as opposed to an ordinance because the information could be included in the County Employee Handbook. The resolution passed. Todd Titus, Wabash City Parks and R e c r e a t i o n D e p a r t m e n t , announced that fireworks will be held on July 4, 10:15 p.m., at Field of Dreams. He also announced that a study was conducted of the Honeywell Pool, which is now 51 years old. He explained that the pool is in need of repairs to prolong its usefulness. The full results of the study will be released at an upcoming meeting of the Parks and Recreation Board. The next Wabash City Council meeting will be June 25, 6 p.m., at Wabash City Hall.

Students assisting with backstage set work are Makinzie Hoagland, Alexis Gabrielle, Brenden Ridgeway, Bo Mullett, Jake Bruss, and Samantha Maggart. Sixty-eight students in grades three through six will present Alice in Oz by Val Cheatham at 5 p.m. both evenings. This play is presented by permission of the publishers The Raymond A. Hoffman Company. The story is a fun mix of Alice in Wonderland characters that suddenly find themselves in Oz. Alice (Madison Nevil) thinks she is in Wonderland until the Cards tell her to get on the Yellow Brick Road to Oz. She meets the Wizard of Oz (Adam Bott), who is not only lost, but has a broken wand. They then meet the Mad Hatter (Ben Hewitt), the Marching Hare (Angela Levine) and the Cheshire Kittycat (Beatrice Snavely) who all have their personal “wants”. The Wicked Witch of the West (Kennedy Watson) complicates progress for the travelers, who then meet up with Tweedle (Devin Marcum), Dee (Quinn Maggart) and

Doubt (Rob Ford) who add comedy to the situation. Magic is Melanie Beery. Judy Ward, assisted by Charly Dye, is directing Alice in Oz. Tracey Denney and Lisa Fadil assist them as consultants. Beth Miller has been a volunteer helper. The backstage crew of Gary Dale, set construction; Zac Hunter, lighting; and Joe Eppley, backstage manager provided technical assistance, as well as the Honeywell Center technical director, Andrew Edmonds. Admission for both shows is free, but donations will be accepted at the door.

CARDIAC NORSE NICK WILDCATS IN 2A STATE FINALE Northfield 3 Evansville Mater Dei 2 by J.D. Sparks INDIANAPOLIS—Warning: the 2012 Northfield baseball team is not for the feint of heart. But the Norse faithful who have endured the moments of sheer terror and high blood pressure were rewarded Saturday at Victory Field in Indianapolis. The Norse became the 2A state champions, edging Evansville Mater Dei 32. “We’ve adopted a nickname— the Cardiac Kids,” Northfield’s ace and winning pitcher, Ryan Keaffaber, said. Watching these Norsemen gets the heart thumping. Throughout this season’s

IHSAA tournament series, the Norse faced two last-inning deficits and three last at-bat victories. Saturday marked the first time throughout this postseason Northfield represented the away team. The Norse (29-5-1) defense and the brilliance of Keaffaber made sure there would be no Mater Dei heroics. In fact, Keaffaber held the Wildcat offense to a 3-for-17 performance with runners on base and 1-for-7 with a runner at third. “Ryan pitches year round, so I’m not sure there’s a situation he’s never seen before,” Tony Uggen, the Norse Head Coach, said. “The state championship game wasn’t too big for him. He was great.” Possibly the biggest threat Mater Dei (18-14-1) posed came in the bottom of the third inning with the Norse holding

Keaffaber ends season unblemished, 16-0

by J.D. Sparks After out-dueling Evansville Mater Dei starting pitcher Joe Ritter 3-2 in the 2A state finals game Saturday, Northfield ace Ryan Keaffaber ended his junior year with a blemish-free 16-0 pitching record. With his 16th win, Keaffaber, a 6-foot southpaw, tied the Indiana state record for the second most wins in a season. Only four players before him have reached 17 wins. “It’s pretty cool,” Keaffaber told The Paper about his 16-0 record. “Not a lot of other guys have had a chance to do that. But the feeling of winning a state title and to be able to perform for my teammates trumps anything else right now. “Those guys are the best.” In 109 and two-thirds innings pitched this season, Keaffaber racked up 164 strikeouts against 30 walks and 56 hits. He finished the season with a 1.23 ERA. What may be more impressive, however, is that he recorded the win in each of his team’s seven IHSAA tournament wins from sectionals through the state title game. “I’m not sure if that’s ever been done before,” said Uggen. “If so, that has to be pretty rare. With him on the NORSE STARTING PITCHER mound, we’re at our best Ryan Keaffaber tosses a pitch defensively. That’s what we towards the plate at the state finals aimed for through the tour- on June 16 at Victory Field. He improved to 16-0 after he and his nament series. team bested Evansville Mater Dei 32 for the 2A state crown. (photo by (continued on page 23) J.D. Sparks)

He went 2-for-4 and scored a run during his team’s 3-2 win over Evansville Mater Dei at Victory Field. (photo by J.D. Sparks) a 2-0 lead. Sam Goad led off with a base hit through the middle of the infield. Alex Springer followed with an infield base hit, and then a wild pitch moved both runners into scoring position. Keaffaber struck out Adam

Blankenberger for the first out of the inning. Next, Tyler Walsh grounded to third base. Goad broke for home, but Northfield third baseman Adam Roser combined with his older brother and catcher, Andy Roser, for the force out. The final batter, Cody Hess,

Wells earns L.V. Phillips Mental Attitude Award By J.D. Sparks INDIANAPOLIS—Northfield’s Hunter Wells capped off an impressive senior season Saturday. After his team defeated Evansville Mater Dei 3-2 in the 2A state championship baseball game at Victory Field Saturday, Wells was named the L.V. Phillips Mental Attitude Award winner. “It feels pretty awesome,” Wells said to The Paper Saturday night. “I’m just in awe. I have the perfect team and I’ve been blessed with a great family, awesome teammates and awesome coaches. It just feels great.” Northfield Head Baseball Coach Tony Uggen described Wells as the L.V. Phillips Award personified—the perfect winner for the award. “I can’t say enough about how special (Wells) is,” Uggen said. “If you would have told me three years ago that he would win the most prestigious award in high school baseball, starting on a state-championship team and batting .380, I’d have told you that you are crazy. “That’s not to sound negative, either. That’s just a testament to his work ethic. He just strived to be the best he can be at whatever he’s doing.” (continued on page 23)

grounded to the pitcher for the third out. “I’m just glad I can come through for my teammates on a stage like state—that’s the best feeling,” Keaffaber said. The Norse wasted little time cracking the scoreboard. Adam Roser, the Norse freshman leadoff man, sent a single to centerfield in the top of the first. He scored on a wild pitch after a Tanner Chamberlain sacrifice bunt and then moving to third on an Andy Roser towering flyout. Collin Dawes scored Northfield’s second run in the second inning after smacking a one-out double to left field, marking Dawes’ first extra-base hit of the season. Dallas Hovey reached (continued on page 22)

MMA Minded reopens at new location; offers new programs by Brent Swan After making his impact felt inside the ring, Rocky France took a step back after his win at AFA 7 over Brandon Bolt to figure out which path to continue down. Asked if he had officially retired from fighting, France was quick to reply that was far from the case. “I haven’t fought in a while, partially because I wasn’t sure who was going to be next,” France said. “I like to think I had put on a good show whenever I fought, but over the past year or so, people haven’t wanted to risk their record to take on a fighter like myself.” During his break from action inside the ring, France was awarded the opportunity to continue working on his craft outside of the ring.

“At the old gym on East Harrison, you could tell we just outgrew that space,” France said. “We wanted to grow, but we needed to make sure it was at a rate we could sustain over time.” Recently, France and his fiancé, Heather Varner, relaunched MMA Minded at its new and current location, 1160 North Cass St., inside the Wabash Shopper’s Mart. “With this location, we’ve been able to expand in just about every direction,” France said. “We can now offer a variety of classes – not just the Mixed Martial Arts training we had done in the past.” Currently, MMA Minded offers classes in cardio strength, wrestling, jiu(continued on page 23)

started.” Dawes added: “That just felt good. I don’t get a lot of doubles. I just tried to put the ball in play on a 3-2 pitch. That feeling was indescribable.” Joseph Ross began a rally for the Norse’s third run in the sixth inning. Ross blasted a double over the Wildcat centerfielder’s head towards the 418-foot sign. Tanner Wilcox pinch ran for Ross and later scored when Dawes reached first

on an error. “That double, that’s something I’m always going to have,” Ross said. “That’s a memory I’ll always remember. It felt good to get a hit. I was hitting the ball hard all day, just right at people.” That run put the Norse up 3-1 and turned out to be the difference. In the bottom of the frame, Owen blasted a triple to right-center field, scoring Hess from first with no outs to put Mater Dei within

base and advanced Dawes to third with a bunt single. Hovey later stole second and a bad throw by Mater Dei’s shortstop, Hunter Owen, allowed Dawes to score and Hovey to advance to third. “Talk about a kid who really shined in the state spotlight,” Uggen said of Dawes. “He just played outstanding.

a run at 3-2. Keaffaber forced a groundout back to himself from the next batter and ended the frame with consecutive strikeouts. In the final inning, Jake Fleming started the frame with a fourpitch walk and later stole second. Keaffaber struck out two of the next three, including the final out of the game, to seal the win. “(Keaffaber) kind of lost his fastball, but the last guy, I knew he was looking curve,” said Andy Roser. “I knew if he swung at Keaffaber’s fast ball, he wasn’t going to hit it. That was the hardest one he threw all game. “That just felt really good. It hasn’t set in quite yet, though.” Keaffaber finished the game with seven innings pitched. He allowed two runs, one earned, on seven hits and a walk and struck out nine. Mater Dei scored an unearned run in the fifth with the help of a couple of Norse errors. Adam Roser helped end the threat by nailing another runner at the plate when he broke home on a grounder to third. Adam Roser also turned in a brilliant diving stop and throw to first, where Ross stretched to make the play, in the second inning. “Adam Roser has been one of the missing pieces to a team like this,” Uggen said. “He played great. For a freshman to make the plays that he did and get a couple of hits at state, that’s huge. He’s on pace to break several Northfield records.” This 2012 state championship marks Northfield’s second overall. The first came in 2001, also with Uggen at the helm. “You know, just as in 2001, no one is going to remember who the stars of this team were,” Uggen said. “All 20 of these kids are state champions, including Ethan Stouffer, Spencer Miller, Jared Kirtlan, R.J. Waldon, everyone. All these kids contributed and deserve credit.”

Wells, a three-sport athlete, turned in one of the best senior seasons a player can ask for. He helped the Norse football team to its first winning season, 6-5, since 1980, in the fall. In the winter, he earned an individual and team Three Rivers Conference title as well as sectional and regional tournament championships as a wrestler. He was the Fort Wayne Semistate runner up and earned a trip to the state meet. He ended his senior wrestling season with a 35-3 record to run his career total to 111-23. In fact, it was during the wrestling season that Uggen knew he wanted to coach Wells in baseball. “I remember vividly his freshman year at semistate and he was getting pounded, I

think 11-2,” Uggen said. “And most kids, after the match, would be slow to get up and be pouting and feeling sorry for themselves. Not Hunter. “He got up, ran to shake his opponent’s hand, shook the official’s hand, ran to shake the opponent’s coaches’ hands, and ran to his coach. I knew I wanted to coach him right then and there. That’s the kind of kid he is-always positive.” And, in true Wells fashion, he was all smiles after the state title victory Saturday. “It just feels great, I don’t know how else to put it,” he said. “I couldn’t ask for a better way to end my high school career.”

Recently, France and MMA Minded became certified instructors of the Carlson Gracie craft. “We wanted to kind of branch out and change the image of this being a fighter styled gym only,” Varner explained. “We are excited to get out in the community and offer these other classes in addition to the many more offerings we have now.” In addition to the physical classes, France and Varner now offer mat space rental, MMA Minded

apparel and accessories, and weight training. “One of the most popular classes we have added is cheerleading,” Varner said. “We hope to attract cheerleaders of all ages down here.” “We knew we wanted to continue working in a setting like MMA Minded, but never really had the capability of doing so,” France continued. “By changing locations and getting Heather in here, we really feel like we have something to offer nearly anyone. From kids to wives and just about anything in between, we either have a class set up now, or we can

work something in to make sure they get the attention they feel they need.”


For more information about the gym’s offerings, contact France at 765-437-5751
