THE PAPER June 8, 2011

North Manchester’s town-wide garage sale to be held Aug. 5-6 The North Manchester Chamber of Commerce and the News-Journal are teaming together to North coordinate Manchester’s 2nd annual town-wide garage sale. The event, a huge success last year with 75 sales, is being planned for the weekend of Aug. 5-6. The thought behind having a community wide garage sale is the opportunity to create a lot of traffic into the community by offering multiple garage sales on the same weekend. “We were absolutely thrilled with the response last year and people have been calling our office already asking when the sales would be again this year,” said Tim McLaughlin, executive director of the Chamber. “People will travel for garage sales, so we think it’s very realistic to expect a lot of people making the trip to North Manchester from out of town again this year. I would love to have 100 sales going on the same weekend.” The News-Journal will run the ads for the sales (as they do now) in their newspaper and create a fullpage town map detailing the location of each participating garage sale. “We think it should be a win-win situation for everyone,” said McLaughlin. “By promoting it well, as long as we have a large number of garage (continued on page 6)

McCoart’s Auto specializes in restoring Mustangs “from the ground up”

Mark McCoart by Shaun Tilghman Mark McCoart has owned and operated McCoart’s Auto Inc., located at 4 Shopping Center Lane, Somerset, since 1989. He and his staff continue to offer a full line auto service center, but they also specialize in the restoration of classic Mustangs and muscle cars. “I’ve been in business here as McCoart’s Auto Inc. since 1989, but I also

opera t e online at,” Mark said.

“I started out as general auto repair and then I got more into buying salvage cars and rebuilding wrecks.” When Mark was younger, an uncle from Kentucky gave him an old, worn out motorcycle. He fixed up the motorcycle himself and rode it around until he saw a Mustang advertised in the paper, which happened to be a 1967 Fastback. “The car was all rusted out but it had a big motor in it and I wanted it, so I traded the motorcycle for it,” Mark explained. “My dad was beside himself; he told me he didn’t even want it on the property. I kept it at my girlfriend’s and I had a neighbor that let me take it over to his place

actually still have it; in fact it was the first one I restored. “I was working the in mainten a n c e department at Wabash Alloys when I bought the building so I was sort of moonlighting in here for a while. When I started fixing up those wrecks there weren’t really any parts available for the Mustangs, so I found myself buying parts cars whenever I could. At some point I decided I was going to restore that first Mustang; once we got it looking good we started taking it to some shows and from there people wanted to know where I had it done – that’s when I started taking on other jobs.”

Those “other jobs” have contin-

typically will buy a wrecked car with low miles and use that engine. I

BEFORE roll in at McCoart’s because, even though they’re located in the small town of Somerset, they do almost all aspects of the restoration process in-house. “The Mustang stuff has always been like a hobby on the side of the business but now we’re getting to the point where there’s a waiting list for the restoration jobs,” Mark stated. “We are usually working on three or four Mustangs at a time; what most body shops do is the outer stuff and the inner stuff never gets d o n e .

modern, but with t h e

Basically a lot of what we do makes the car more

o l d e r style. Each restoration job is different but generally around here they are all from the ground up.” According to the website, the staff at McCoart’s care a lot about the little things. “We don’t count on others to figure problems out, we solve every problem as it comes. We don’t cover things up – we fabricate parts, weld, rewire, and renew. Being in business has taught us that doing it once correct is far better than doing it twice cheap.” “A lot of what we do is unique for anywhere – most places won’t go to the trouble of doing some of the things we do,” Mark added. “A lot of places buy an engine and drop it in, but I

can usually get the whole car for less than what guys will spend on a new engine, but you won’t see any of the big supercharged stuff like in magazines – I kind of stick with what Ford builds. There is a lot of custom stuff we do that people don’t even realize and more of the parts we use are new rather than reused.” He concluded, “We understand that every car is a dream and we treat it like our own. We give every car the attention it deserves while understanding that the customer is waiting – very few steps are sent out, therefore you get a nicer job done quicker.” For more information, check out

Mentoring program provides opportunity to help Wabash youth by Danielle Smith Members of Wabash County’s judicial system have teamed up with Pastor Rick Tolley, New Foundations Ministries, and the Youth Service Bureau in an effort to take a proactive approach to assisting troubled youth in our county. They have enacted a mentoring program, which matches youth in the probation system with positive adult mentors. This program has been discussed between Circuit Court Judge Robert McCallen and Pastor Tolley since 2005. New life was breathed into the idea when Brian Bassett joined the Wabash County P r o b a t i o n Department. “His desire as a pro-

bation officer was hoping to maybe implement some kind of mentoring with youth,” Tolley said. “So the three of us, along with Dallas Duggan, head of probation, decided this was the time.” Tolley began creating a plan and laying the foundation for the program in May 2010. “We take kids that are on probation, they are ordered by the court to participate in the program. My job is to find suitable volunteers to match up with them. It’s similar to a Big Brothers/Big Sisters concept,” Tolley explained. Volunteers must be 21 years or older and they must complete various requirements such as a criminal background check and a home visit.

After these requirements are satisfied, they will be matched with a mentee. The volunteer is asked to spend 1-2 hours per week with their mentee for the duration of their probationary period. “We encourage them to just be involved. Take them out for a hamburger; call them; get involved in different activities whether it be fishing, bowling or just hanging out,” Tolley explained. Benefits to the mentee could be improved academic perfor mance, improved communication skills, improved family relationships, improved self-esteem, decreasing likelihood of experimenting with drugs or alcohol,

decreasing likelihood of being involved with violence and much more. “We want to try to get adults that will instill some positive ideas in kids’ heads and hopefully we can motivate them to change the direction they are going,” he said. “So many times people say ‘Well if a kid is in this situation it must be bad parenting’, but that’s not always the case. Sometimes they just need someone outside the role of a parent that can tell them the same thing that the parents have been saying, but they just haven’t gotten the message.” Along with benefits to the mentee, Tolley outlined some of the benefits this program will bring to our com-

munity in general. “They did a study at University of Minnesota that said that for every dollar a community spends on reaching out and helping at-risk kids, it returns about $4,89 to the community,” Tolley said. He hopes that this program will offer a proactive way to prevent the need to remove kids from their homes, therefore incurring the extensive costs of placing them in a detention center. “Not only is the kid helped, but they become an asset to the community,” he explained. He also feels that businesses looking to relocate or start-up would find this problem-solving approach attractive. “We can help create an environment

where businesses are saying “That’s the kind of community I want to be a part of.” The program is currently up and running, and Tolley already has visions of expanding it to reach out to kids before they even reach the probation system. However, volunteers are desperately needed in order to sustain the program. “The real answer for our community is not government involvement or some other entity’s involvement, but people getting involved,” Tolley said. “Kennedy said ‘Don’t ask what the country can do for you, but what can you do for the country’, and we can step back and say ‘What can this group or that (continued on page 6)

Emerald ash borer awareness is focus of new Purdue program

Purdue Extension has begun a summer long program to help homeowners manage ash trees in their

yards as the emerald ash borer continues its destructive path through Indiana. Purdue’s Neighbors

Against Bad Bugs, a collaboration among Purdue Master city Gardeners, foresters and neighborhood groups, has declared this season “The Summer of NABB.” NABB participants will organize tree-tagging events at the request of neighborhood associations so that homeowners and communities can learn where their ash trees are and what they need to do before the ash borer arrives in their area. NABB also will help neighbors learn how to save money by negotiating with tree care companies for group rates on the cost of treatments and, if a tree is dying from infestation, removal.

“The most important benefit of NABB is that people learn to act early to save valuable ash trees from unnecessary destruction,” said Jodie Ellis, a Purdue University emerald ash borer expert. Gov. Mitch Daniels declared May 22-28 as Emerald Ash Borer Awareness Week. The emerald ash borer has killed millions of ash trees in North America since its discovery in 2002 and has been found in 14 states. Since 2004, it has been found in 42 of Indiana’s 92 counties: Adams, Allen, Blackford, Brown, Carroll, Cass, DeKalb, Delaware, Dubois, Elkhart, Floyd, Fulton, Grant, Hamilton, Hancock, Harrison, Hendricks, Huntington, Jay, Kosciusko, LaGrange, Lake, LaPorte, Lawrence, Madison, Marion, Marshall, Miami, Monroe, Noble, Orange, Porter,

Randolph, Ripley, St. Joseph, Steuben, Tippecanoe, Wabash, Washington, Wells, White and Whitley. Feeding by emerald ash borer larvae sometimes causes splitting in the bark of young ash trees. Newly formed adult ash borers exit from D-shaped exit holes starting in May. The best way to prevent the spread of the exotic beetle is to avoid moving firewood long distances because its larvae hide under bark, Ellis said. Firewood should be bought locally and burned completely. “This year, we are asking Hoosiers to go a step further and, where circumstances allow, protect healthy urban ash trees from the emerald ash borer with properly applied pesticides,” Ellis said. Healthy ash trees provide benefits such as improved air quality, water conservation, lowered energy

AN ASH TREE such as this one not protected with pesticides dies in three to five years after an emerald ash borer attack. (Purdue Extension photo) costs and reduced storm runoff, all of which help to add to property value, Ellis said. “In addition, people are emotionally comforted by the presence of trees,” she said. For more information on the emerald ash borer or to learn how to arrange a NABB tree-tagging

event with Purdue’s Master Gardeners, v i s i t NABB activities are managed by Purdue Extension and Master Gardeners and are available at the request of neighborhood associations throughout Indiana at no charge.

Smoking” education that reached nearly 4,000 students in Wabash County during the 2010-11 school year. Classes were conducted in all Wabash County elementary schools as well as in some middle and high schools. “Living Essentials and their employees are to be applauded for their wonderful support and willingness to help our youth choose to be smokefree. Teaching the many health risks and dangers of smoking and using tobacco products requires continuous education. Through Living Essentials’ sponsorship, we were able to

continue that education this past year,” said Karen Newhouse, WCH Foundation director. The “Don’t Start Smoking” classes have also been successful due to the excellent cooperation of the teachers, nurses and school administrators of Wabash County. “School officials and teachers understand the benefits and realize that students who choose not to smoke are more likely to graduate, have better school attendance and make better lifestyle choices. Smoking can also be a gateway to other drugs,” said Teresa

CROP Walk raises funds for Church World Service The May 15 Wabash County CROP Hunger Walk raised just over $7,900 for Church World Service (CWS) to use in fighting hunger and poverty worldwide. CWS is an interdenominational organization, which provides assistance in areas of disasters, drought, extreme poverty and other situations where people are in need. Twenty-five percent of the proceeds will return to Wabash County to

fight hunger in our community. FISH of Wabash and the Fellowship Food Pantry in North Manchester will receive support from the recent CROP walk. Seven congregations participated with 79 walkers taking part. Forty-eight walked in North Manchester and 31 took part in Wabash city. Many people contributed financial support to those who walked. Walk day was wet and cold, but the walk

went on in recognition of people worldwide who walk daily for food, water and firewood. CROP walks are held annually in many communities.

While we’re at the bridge by Amanda Hoff With the addition of

the stoplight at the bridge in LaFontaine,

JUST ONE “SMART” REASON TO CALL NOW: Standard Pricing. Know the price before we start. No surprises, just honesty – the way it should be. Bob Zahm


Heating & Cooling Systems Since 1904

356-0186 or 1-877-218-8526

cars can only travel through one lane at a time. Although the stoplight slows traffic down, it also gives a rare opportunity, one that LaFontaine Christian Church has taken advantage of. “I heard people complaining,” said LaFontaine Minister Rick Smalling. Thinking this was the perfect time to teach the congregation, and others, a lesson, a few members of the church created a sign that simply read, “PWYW”. These four letters stand for Pray While You Wait. The temporary stoplight seemed to present the perfect opportunity to remind those in the community to pause and pray. “While you’re waiting there, pull out your prayer list,” Smalling said. “Make use of your time.” The church also has a PowerPoint that runs before services and one of the slides includes one

that says “PWYW”. Although drivers spend plenty of time at stoplights, new ones that add time to the trip always seem to irritate more than they prevent accidents. The stoplight in LaFontaine was installed due to work on the bridge. This has limited traffic to one lane and made the normally speedy trip through the town a fraction longer. Those that became irritated when stopped will be happy to know that the light will most likely be removed once work on the bridge is complete. Once the bridge is finished however, there will be no use for the signs. “They will be removed when the ridge is finished in November,” Smalling said. of the Members church and Smalling feel the signs have served a great purpose. Once they are taken down with the

light, some may forget to pray as much. For Smalling, that’s not a problem. It seems that he never stops praying long enough to forget. “When I go by your house or see you in your car or even see a car that looks like yours, I pray for you,” he said. With the sign being seen by anyone that stops at the light, the church, and the new building they’ve been in for two years, are getting some attention. “The new building has made us more visible and attractive,” Smalling said. The church has seen growth in members since moving into the new building. So, even if the new light angers drivers, the LaFontaine Christian Church is asking motorists to make the best of their wasted seemingly time. If you’re going to be stuck at the light for a few minutes anyway, you might as well Pray While You Wait.

“Studies show that when businesses encourage their employees to become involved in volunteering and the employees get involved, it raises morale, therefore raising production. It’s a benefit to the company to get them involved. It’s all about

money for the company and if you can increase that just by helping the community everybody wins,” he said. Tolley concluded by commending Judge McCallen and Judge Christopher Goff for their proactive, problem-solving approach

to our county court system. “They are both actively seeking ways to solve problems instead of just being the tough guy and sentencing so I think we have a lot going for Wabash County that a lot of people don’t realize,” Tolley said.

Record wet planting season delays 2011 soybean crop

With the U.S. Department of Agriculture reporting only 25 percent of Indiana’s soybean crop planted as of May 31 and only 7 percent of Ohio’s crop in the ground, a Purdue Extension agronomist says the 2011 planting season is earning its place in the record books as one of the wettest and slowest in the Eastern Corn Belt. The late start to the growing season could spell trouble for soybean plants, but Shaun Casteel said there are things farmers should do during late planting to give the crop maximum yield potential.

“I certainly preach the importance of timely plantings to maximize yields, which is normally within the first three weeks of May for Indiana,” he said. “Because that hasn’t been possible in some areas this spring, farmers need to set the stage for the best possible return on late plantings of soybeans.” Casteel said growers first need to consider that planting soybeans in the first weeks of June requires a 10-20 percent seeding rate increase to aid in faster row closure and higher pod height, with fewer days to

flower. Increased seeding rates especially will be necessary in fields that have heavy corn residue and weed biomass. Soybean growers also should be planting the crop into narrow rows, as 30-inch rows take 25 days longer to canopy than 15-inch rows, and 40 days longer than 7.5inch rows, Casteel said. Because soybeans initiate reproduction as day length shortens, it will occur much more quickly with delayed planting. If the crop has not had a chance for canopy closure before reproduction begins,

yield potential would decrease, Casteel said. Another factor growers need to consider is soybean variety. Farmers in the northern quarter of Indiana have until June 15 to plant fullseason varieties, while the central portion of the state has until June 20. June 25 is the last date for fullseason varieties in the southern fourth. “Varieties should be dropped a half maturity group after these dates and planted for another two weeks before growers alternaconsider tives,” Casteel said. While it is true that delayed planting can reduce yield poten-

tial, Casteel said it’s important to realize it’s not a guarantee that yields will be lower. “Delayed planting probably contributed to the low state yields in 2002 (41.5 bushels per acre) and 2008 (45 bushels per acre). However, Indiana averaged 49 bushels per acre in 2009, which was 3 percent above the annual yield trend,” he said. “A favorable seed fill period in 2009 allowed many soybeans to increase seed size to compensate for fewer nodes, which also allowed the crop to yield well.” More information

With many chiropractic patients out of work for a number of reasons, Holley is looking forward to shrinking that number and improving Wabash one person at a time. He notes that the town of Wabash has already taken a step in that direction. “I’ve been happy with how the Y is a part of the community,” he said. “That’s a big step for us.” Holley, on top of helping patients overcome pain with regular adjustments, also believes that exercise and a proper diet can improve daily life more than most people think. He is looking forward to helping his patients achieve improvement in their health through a drug-free approach.

USS Wabash shipmates reflect on reunion Dear editor, The reunion participants in the 40th Anniversary of the commissioning of the USS Wabash AOR-5 want to gratefully thank the City of Wabash, its citizens, businesses, organizations, and Wabash County representatives for your overwhelming hospitality and generosity. We came for a four-day reunion (April 28 May 1) and you made us feel like hometown sons and daughters coming home after being gone for some time. The connection between us – your city Wabash and our ship Wabash – has become something special for us. For most of us, our first experience with the city was checking into our lodging for the weekend. Most of us stayed at The Charley Creek Inn or the Knight’s Inn (Wabash Inn) where we were warmly welcomed. General information packets were waiting for us upon check in and you men-

tioned our reunion in newspapers and on the radio. Thank you for welcoming us. Thursday evening dinner was at the Market Street Grill, where we were also holding our reunion banquet on Friday. Both evenings were wonderful gatherings. In attendance at our banquet were many government and business people who helped bring our reunion to fruition. We were pleased to have Mayor Robert Va n l a n d i n g h a m , Whitney Myers, Bill Gerding, Wade Weaver, Tracy Stewart, and Heather Allen become Wabash shipmates for the evening. We also had shipmates from two veterans groups – Don Cole, from the Legion, American and Duane Truss, from the VFW. After the banquet we were presented with a Key to the City by the Mayor. We also held an auction that raised money for the museum. Items were donated by the city and

individuals and the lively auction bidding made for a fun evening. Thank you for joining us. Earlier on Friday, two of us visited the Dallas L. Winchester Senior Center to give a presentation. We were welcomed by Megan McKillip and several of the seniors that use the facility. Bill Barnes was particularly interested in our presence since he had prepared several USS Wabash pictures and has studied our ship in the library and museum. It was a pleasure to be able to visit and share with the folks at our presentation. Thank you for letting us come visit with you. We were treated to meals by the city, the American Legion and the VFW. We had informative tours of the city on the Wabash Cannonball Express Trolley (our driver qualifies as a shipmate – she drives a Wabash Cannonball). Some of us attended the Osmond Brothers

Concert. Doug Lehman (a shipmate for one hour when a Wabash captain needed a Navy lawyer onboard to give a legal opinion) mentioned us and introduced the Osmonds. The Honeywell Center had a welcome for us on the marquee. The Elks welcomed us that same evening with a spirited toast. Thank you for making us feel special. Sunday morning, we assembled in the 20 Restaurant for a final meal and goodbyes. We were reflecting on how wonderful the past few days had been and how fast they flew by. Thank you, Wabash! We did the right thing by deciding on Wabash, for this particular reunion. We are planning a return in 2017. The Navy term “well done” is for something accomplished in a very satisfactory manner. “Well done, Wabash!” The USS Wabash AOR-5 Shipmates

Interurban building in Lagro offers sweet treats, antiques by Amanda Hoff Jewelry, books, dolls, holiday decorations, fine china and countless collectibles with lengthy histories now line the walls of one half of the Lagro Interurban building, located behind the Lagro Cafe. The other half of the wellknown brick building is home to a walk up ice cream parlor. Lou Studio and his mother-in-law Jody Pefley run the two joined shops with the help of Jody’s sister Betty Wright and family friend LaVerne Davis. The remodeling was finished around October or November, and the shops opened a few weeks ago. The Interurban building has not always been an antique shop or ice cream parlor. In fact, it has been many different things. “I used to come here when Frank Harrell had an antique store here in the 1950’s,” Pefley said. The building has also been used as a bakery shop a few times and a canned goods and general store. Previous owners include Dot Monce and Doug Martin. Because it has lived so many lives under various owners and functions, the Interurban building required quite a bit of cleaning and remodel-

ing once Pefley and Studio bought it last April. “We probably took out 30 loads of and burnt trash another 30 loads,” Pefley said. Thankfully, they had some help from Scot Miller and his crew from Miller Home Improvement. One of the first things Pefley’s customers will notice upon entering her side of the building are the partially exposed brick walls. The brick, however, has not always been visible from the inside. The three layers of brick have been covered with several layers of plaster and drywall over the years. Despite the attempts to chip away at it, large sections of white plaster remain on the walls giving the shop a sort of studio/loft look with a country home feel. The new shop owners struggled with resurfacing another area of the shop as well. They kept a huge shelving unit that was part of the original building and are using it to display many collectibles. The large white fixture, located in the second room of the collectibles shop, also has layers hidden under the surface. “There had to be at least five layers of

paint on it,” Pefley said, listing off several of the colors. After trying to remove all of the paint with a pressure washer to get to the wood underneath, it was decided to just paint it white. Thankfully it still matched the walls. Some other original sections of the building still remain. Pefley is using three old doors that have been upcycled to shelves thanks to Jack Eads. In the attic, the original steel I-beams still support the structure. Some may wonder how the Pefley family, known for buying and selling used farm equipment nationwide as well as holding bi-monthly auctions, could become involved in selling antiques and ice cream. Part of the answer can be found in the ashes of a flea market. Jody Pefley used to sell collectibles and antiques at a flea market until the site was damaged by a fire. Not wanting to give up this hobby turned business, Pefley decided to set up a permanent shop in Lagro. “I’ve always been interested in the building,” she said. Pefley’s son-in-law, Studio, also has a past in his new line of work. His mother

This includes hot dogs with pretzel buns that he makes from scratch. Although Pefley has experience selling at flea markets, the items in her shop are of a slightly different nature. “We had clothing, but this is more collectibles,” Pefley said. While she still offers some clothing, several items have a more interesting past. Pefley has two oldfashioned butter

churns resting in one corner, lightning rods nearby and a shoe bench that is currently serving as a shelf. The shoe bench is from Poll Parrot Shoe Store and includes a small footrest where the sales person would tie the laces on children’s shoes. Wood cut outs of animals divide the bench into several sections and serve as

been received as well. This species overwinters as a partially grown larva, so it is larger when the corn is emerging, compared with black cutworms, which begin their annual Indiana cycle as eggs in the spring. What’s important is that larger larvae, greater than or equal to 0.5 inch, are not controlled by Bt proteins expressed in Herculex and SmartStax. Producers are unhappily finding out that black cutworm is the only species labeled for control with these traited-seeds, and rescue treatments are on their tab. And as we’ve learned in the past and hearing again this spring, the seedapplied insecticides

(e.g., Cruiser, Poncho) provide only suppression of cutworms. They likely do a fine job of suppressing light to moderate infestations, but severe infestations are not controlled, even by the higher rate. Cutworm control may be needed if three to five percent of the seedlings have obvious foliar feeding and plant cutting and live larvae can be found while digging around damaged plants. Higher label rates of insecticides should be considered if the soil surface is crusty and most cutworm activity is below ground.

Cutworms chewing through technology

Numerous reports have been received of emerging corn being damaged by cutworms. As mentioned in issues of Pest & Crop magazine, available at /pestcrop/2011/index. html, the seed-applied insecticides and Bt traited corn will only provide suppression of cutworms. With the severe damage some fields are reportedly receiving, it is obvious that some producers did not scout fields after emergence to determine the need for rescue foliar insecticides. Black cutworm is not the only species of cutworm present and damaging fields. Many reports of claybacked cutworm have

decoration on the base of the footrest. Pefley has also placed a framed article on the bench that describes the sale of a similar shoe shop bench. The other seat was sold in Ohio for $4,800.

He was born May 6, 1949, in Prestonsburg, Ky., to Jay and Mollie (Hall) Shepherd. He married Cathy S. Miller on May 21, 1971; she survives. Mr. Shepherd graduated from South Whitley High School in 1967. He attended Ivy Tech, Wabash, until his illness. He was employed at Eaton Controls, North Manchester, for 25 years. He was a real handyman and very skilled at repairing computers. He also enjoyed spending time with his grandsons. Along with his wife, he is survived by a daughter, Lori A.

deer. Miller also killed over his limit of antlered deer for the season for which he pled guilty to. According to investigators, Miller would harvest the deer and then call his relative who would subsequently go purchase a license and meet Miller just prior to reporting to the deer check station. The relative would tag the deer as though he had killed it and they would report to the deer check station. The pair would then falsify the harvest information they reported to the deer check stations, which are also misdemeanor offenses. Investigators warn that the practice of hunting deer without buying the proper licenses first as

well as conspiring with others to violate the deer hunting laws can have dire consequences for all involved. Miller was convicted on all four charges and ordered to serve 180 days concurrently in the Wabash County Jail on each count for which that sentence was suspended. He was additionally sentenced to one year of probation, loss of his hunting privileges for one year, ordered to pay $264 in court costs as well as $2,500 in deer reimbursement fees. The relative in this case was not charged. Officer Hoerdt stated, “We are very pleased with the outcome in this case. It is my hope that this

sentence will discourage others who may consider committing these unlawful acts from doing so in the future. We receive information on similar violations year round and we will aggressively pursue prosecution for these wildlife crimes”.

Church Women United reports May meeting The Church Women United (CWU) met at the Bachelor Creek Church of Christ on May 6 with 30 present, representing 13 churches. President Brenda Landis opened the meeting. The theme for the day was “Living Our Friendship, Passing on the Key.” The day started with Bonita Kirtland having prayer for the food. The program opened with the group singing “O Church Women United” followed by Bonita having scripture and prayer. Brenda gave the history of the Fellowship of

the Least Coin, which was started by 7 women in 1956; by 2006 it had spread to 80 countries. The idea was that the women in every country could set aside their “least coin” each time they prayed for peace, justice, and reconciliation. The money is then given in the form of grants to help women and children around the world. In 2010, grants totaling $192,000 were awarded. The group then gave their “least coin” offering and Brenda had prayer of dedication. The speaker for the morning was Linda Mirante, who gave the

women a lot to think about in the need of friends and how important they are. She read scripture from John and Luke and told stories, reminding the women that friends may let us down but not God, with Jesus being our best friend. The group then sang “I love to Tell the Story” followed by taking of the offering and prayer. Brenda opened the business meeting by reporting on attending the CWU State Assembly on April 9 in Kokomo. She discussed the Indiana and Kentucky CWU project of school supply kits.

Northfield Norsemen fall in regional championship Controversial call proves pivotal as Norse fall to second ranked Titans by Brent Swan Never the squad to make excuses, the 2011 Northfield Norsemen left Wabash High School's Chris Rood Field refusing to place blame on a questionable balk call after falling to the 2A #2 Taylor Titans. Despite what many in the largely pro-Northfield crowd saw what was at best a debatable call by the third base umpire, Northfield's student-athletes instead remembered an array of missed opportunities throughout the contest. As has been the case for the 2011 season, Northfield turned to its ace, sophomore Ryan Keaffaber who entered the contest with a 10-0 record and an earned run average hovering at about

1.00. Keaffaber set the pace early, retiring one of the state's premier offensive powers in order in the top of the first. Northfield came to the plate in the bottom half of the inning, quickly putting the first two Norse batters on base after Senior Adam House singled up the middle and Tanner Chamberlain laid down a bunt that split the first base side of the Trojan infield for a base hit. With the middle of the Norse lineup coming to the plate and no one out, things looked good early for the Norse. Unfortunately, the Norse were to score, unable stranding the runners on first and second to end the inning. Pitching took over the game from that point with Keaffaber finishing the game for the Norse striking out six Titans while scattering six hits.

The pivotal inning proved to be the top half of the fourth. With Taylor at the plate and a runner on first, Keaffaber was called for a balk by the third base umpire. After Northfield Coach Tony Uggen questioned the call, the Titans scored the games first and only run. “No doubt that was a big call,” Keaffaber said. “As a team, we can't make excuses though. I made a mistake on the pitch that scored the run. If I hit my spot, who knows, maybe the inning is over.” What stunned the Norse the most, however, was the lack of offense throughout the game. “We should have hit them a lot better than we did,” Northfield Catcher Peyton Ross said. “If we come out and hit they ball like we could have, that call doesn't matter. Coach told us after

ADAM HOUSE connects on a leadoff hit in the IHSAA baseball regional championship game held June 6 at Wabash High School's Chris Rood Field. The class 2A sixth-ranked Norsemen eventually fell to the second ranked Taylor Titans 1-0. (photo by Brent Swan) the game that these things happen, that the call didn't cost us the game. We had our chances, we just didn't execute.” Overall the Norse put the ball into play consistently but most were popped up or grounded to Trojan defenders. “We just couldn't get the ball to drop,” Ross said. The best offensive opportunity for the Norse came after a sharply hit ball to the gap in right-center field, but the fleetfooted center fielder for the Titans snagged

the ball on the run. In the bottom of the seventh, Northfield Shortstop Austin Keen drew a two-out walk, but pinch-hitter struck out swinging on a hit and run to end the game and the season for the Norse. After the game, an emotional group of seniors were left with the realization that they had just concluded their high school athletic careers. “It's rough,” Ross said when asked what he would say to the underclassmen on the Northfield roster.

“You see a team like Taylor, they can hit and they can field. I hope our guys keep on hitting the weights, you don't get that big overnight. A lot of guys don't want to put the effort in, or say baseball isn't about the weights, but these guys (Taylor) are strong.” After pitching the Norse to the championship game by defeating Adams Central in the semifinal, House said he hopes Keaffaber and the Norse realize how quick time seems to

go by. “I'd tell these guys to enjoy every minute of it, because it'll be over before you know it,” House said. Despite the obvious letdown of losing his first game of the year, Keaffaber said next year's squad will be back at it, hoping to duplicate the success of this year's team. “We're going to miss these seniors – they are a great group of guys,” Keaffaber said. “We're going to be back. I don't want to feel like this again.”

Cannonball Lanes to offer new lanes

by Amanda Hoff Bowlers who frequent Wabash Cannonball Lanes, located at 527 N. Cass St., will be happy to know that the lanes are under construction but will be opening again shortly. Yeager Bowling Service, the company that has been remodeling Cannonball, began work in midMay. The crew is from Shelbyville but they have installed lanes around the world, including China, Japan, and Russia. Cannonball has changed in many ways over the years under the ownership of Ken Purdy. Purdy auto-scoring had installed and updated, added cosmic lights and carpeting, undated the locker room, and installed a kitchen in the lounge.

“This includes our pizza and other snack bar favorites from the grill and fryer,” Purdy said. Vi Smith, an employee at Cannonball, with the help of a few others, painted a mural last summer of the Cannonball Train along the back wall of the lanes, above the pins, and part way across each wall. The newest however, updates, focus on the lanes themselves. “We’ll have completely new lanes and approaches,” Purdy said. Generally, when the lanes need an update, the wood is sanded and refinished, but that was not possible this time. “They were on the thin side so it was time to replace them,” Purdy added. The lanes at

Cannonball were originally installed in the 1950s but if bowlers had gone to the Cass Street location, they would not have found them. “The original first six lanes came from the bowling lanes at Wabash All Occasions, above Market Street Grill,” Purdy said. Later, Dale Ashby built Cannonball and installed those original six lanes along with six others. He then expanded to the 24 lanes bowlers use today. In the 1980s, Jim Moore bought the lanes and replaced them with used wood lanes. The new lanes that Purdy is putting in are synthetic wood laminate lanes. “They are guaranteed for 1520 years and will last longer than that,” he explained.

RICHARD AND NANCY FRANTZ will celebrate with 60th wedding anniversary by hosting a family dinner. The couple was married June 9, 1951, at the Methodist Church in Wabash. They have three daughters, Paula (Greg) Garner, Wabash; Leslie Frantz, Fort Wayne; and Susan Spackman, Asheville, N.C. They also have four grandchildren, Erica, Nick, Allie, and Carolyn. (photo provided)

Of course, with all of the remodeling, the Yeager team and Purdy could not have done it alone. “I really appreciate the support of all the bowlers in Wabash County, my mother, Crossroads Bank, operational manager Mark Solloway business and customer service manager Lisa Tyson, and the summer staff which includes Josh Poor, Larry Black and Vi Smith for making this all come together,” Purdy said. “I believe in Wabash and we are trying to do our part to make this a city to be proud of.” If everything goes well as Yeager Bowling Service is finishing up the conWabash struction, Cannonball Lanes will be up and running around the sec-

NEW LANES are being installed at Wabash Cannonball Lanes to replace the ones that have been in use since the 1980s. The alley has been closed for construction since the middle of May but will be operational around the second week of June. Cannonball Lanes will hold a grand opening in early August, after the 4-H fair. (photo by Amanda Hoff) ond week of June. “As a lifelong member of the community we are doing our best to update our facilities and provide a place

for families and friends to enjoy,” Purdy said. The grand opening will be in August, sometime before

bowling leagues start

and after the 4-H fair,

and will include pizza

and discounted rates for bowlers.

Beauchamp family purchases 13-24 Drive-In; Honeywell Foundation to operate The Honeywell Foundation announced it has assumed operations of the 13-24 DriveIn. The drive-in was purchased by Michael and Angie Beauchamp and Parker and Katie Beauchamp, with the intent of the Foundation operating the facility and receiving all the proceeds. “We look forward to the community being able to enjoy the DriveIn for many years,” said owner Parker Beauchamp. “It’s a great opportunity for

family entertainment, and we are happy to be a part of saving this Wabash landmark.” The Honeywell Foundation has experience coordinating improvements and managing operations of historic movie theaters. In early 2009, the Foundation assumed ownership of the Eagles Theatre in downtown Wabash, and subsequently initiated major repairs and cosmetic upgrades to the facility. That movie theater continues to be

owned and operated by the Foundation. “This is a great opportunity for us to continue expanding our community programming,” said Tod Minnich, Honeywell Foundation executive director. “Thanks to the generosity of the Beauchamps, this popular attraction will remain open and continue to offer family entertainment. We’re honored to be a part of

it.” Improvements to the drive-in include projector and audio system repair, and repainting the screen. Extensive cleaning of the concession stand will also been completed. The drive-in will reopen June 10 for a special preview night. Movies will be announced soon. Search 13-24 Drive-In on Facebook or call 260-563-5745 for information.

SCHOOL IS OUT so please drive carefully and watch out for darting kids. A MOMENT IN HISTORY: Did you know that in 1838 the Laketon post office was established? The part of Laketon south of the river was known as South Laketon, but when they asked for their own post office the government said they would have to change their name. In 1874 the post office was established and Ijamsville was born. In 1894 the Laketon post office was robbed and again in 1897. In June 1914 it was robbed once more. Then in Ijamsville on July 31, 1923, Miss Effie Clark, the postmistress resigned and the Ijamsville post office was closed. Many people then received their mail at the Laketon post office. The last post office in Laketon was small but very efficient and handicap accessible. Some people from North Manchester came to the Laketon post office for just that reason. But, as years went by

pating in the festival should contact Bob Cash at 260-571-3321 for information and booth. P A R A D E ENTRIES: Please contact Maxine Baker at 260-782-2451 (Town Hall) or Shorty Harrell 260-571-7094 for parade entries for the festival.

and times changed, people didn’t write letters as much. The invention of cell phones and Internet was much more convenient and unfortunately to the protests of many Laketon residents the Laketon Post Office was closed in 2010. NOW FOR MORE CURRENT EVENTS: The Laketon American Legion and Auxiliary held a Memorial Day ceremony at Laketon Cemetery on May 29. Jon Albright, Post #402 Adjutant, delivered a message to approximately 70 attending. Stating the day was of remembrance, not a day of celebration, and as citizens, a sense of obligation to stand between bereaved families and those who mock them. To speak for those who can no longer speak for themselves and to lift the fallen to their honored place. He ended by stating, “Our greatest contribution to our troops is to stand united behind them, and undivided in our commitment to their cause”. The program included welcome and singing of the National Anthem by Auxiliary President Linda Torpy; Invocation by Ogden Alger, a 48 yr. Post #402 member; vocal, ‘White Cliffs of Dover’ by Doug King, Post #402 member; flags were placed on the wreath in Memoriam, remembering those lost in each branch of service and all wars unreturned, by Colin Garcia, SAL, Kayla Garcia and Paris

Butler, Juniors. This was followed by ‘Taps’ by Taylor Johnson and Blayk Giddens, High Manchester School students; Honor Salute by Wabash American Legion Post #15 Color Guard; concluding with benediction by Thelma Butler Auxiliary Chaplain. A dinner was served to approximately 80 attending at the Post following and special music was provided by Derek Self, Katylyn Eberly, Michael Seitz and Tom Naragon, Manchester High School music department.

THIS PICTURE WAS TAKEN ON JUNE 1, and shows the construction that has started on the entrance at Northfield High School. When the school was built in 1962 there were open arches connecting the classrooms to the auditorium, music rooms and the cafeteria. The arches were closed in 1989 to make students’ passage to those rooms more pleasant during the winter months. This time the remodeling is to make the entrance to the school safer.

By ordering Scrip, families help the PTO support field trips, school library funds and other things, which enhance the education of our students. Also, our students are not out selling door to door with traditional fundraisers like the overpriced candy, gift wrap and other things. Scrip offers a wide range of retailers including local stores. Please support the PTO and order Scrip. Many participating families will tell you that it is a wonderful program, so give it a

Have you ever been given something, or purchased something used? You knew, it wasn’t new but it was new to you. Did you love it? Sometimes the things we use the most or enjoy the most are items that someone else didn’t need or want anymore. We have been so blessed in recent weeks by some wonderful donations to Access Youth Center (AYC): a few couches

and a TV, adding to the cool living room feel in part of the Youth Center. Though these items were no longer needed by someone else, they met our needs perfectly. Often times we can be afraid to give because we think what we have is not good enough; that our gifts wouldn’t make a difference. The Bible says that God “prizes above other things” someone who gives and puts their heart in it (2 Corinthians 9:7 Amp.). You see it doesn’t matter what the gift is as much as the attitude of the giver. Look for

opportunities to give this week, you never know, you may have exactly what someone else is looking for. AYC, 74 W. Canal St., 260-563-2070, is now open for summer hours. The Summer Feeding Program will be Mon. - Fri., 3:30 - 4:30 p.m., for anyone under age 18. Wednesday Teen Church will be 4:30 - 6 p.m. for middle/high school ages. Fridays are open nights from 4:30 - 8 p.m. for middle/high school ages, and Saturdays are open nights from 6 9 p.m. for middle/high school ages.
