Ellen’s offers big city boutique atmosphere in Downtown Wabash Yet another new business fills a storefront in Historic Downtown Wabash. by Danielle Swan

On Jan. 25, Ellen’s – Dress to Impress opened its doors and began offering formalwear sales at 36 W. Canal St., Wabash. The store carries new and once-used bridal, prom and semi-formal gowns and offers tuxedo rental. The unique aspect of Ellen’s is the consignment service. Lisa Keffaber, owner of Ellen’s, began accepting consignment dresses on Facebook, and soon learned that there was a real need for this service in Wabash. “Over the years, I’ve watched my closets accumulate prom dresses and pageant dresses and I thought ‘I can’t be the only mom in this situation,” Keffaber said. “We only wear these dresses one time and they are perfectly good.” Keffaber accepts dresses that are no more than five years old and are clean and in excellent condition. She and the dress owner confer on the asking price, and she typically prices the dress at half to twothirds of its original purchase price. She and the dress owner split the selling price equally. She also accepts formal shoes on consignment. “I just want to help girls have that special dress on a budget,” Keffaber said. In order to make that happen, she offers exceptional customer service, many times searching for that specific item that a customer

wants. Ellen’s bridal gown inventory is mostly consignment dresses, many of which were sample gowns at bridal stores. “My most expensive dress right now is $500 and there aren’t very many of those. Most of them have never even been worn,” Keffaber said. Another important facet of Ellen’s is tuxedo rental. “People were to the point where they had to go out of town to rent a tuxedo so I’m bringing that in for them as well,” Keffaber said. For prom-goers, Keffaber has spoken with area schools and will visit each school the Monday after prom to give her renters the opportunity to return their tuxedo without having to come into her

store. “They won’t have to drag their tux back in here and sit and wait, they can just dump it on the table at the school and be done,” she said. In addition to clothing and shoes, Ellen’s also offers jewelry, custom garters and Lil’ Bow Chic’ Designs handmade hair accessories and bridal veils. Find Lil’ Bow Chic’ Designs at w w w. l i l b owch i c d e or on Facebook at Lil’ Bow Chic’ Designs. Keffaber selected Downtown Wabash as the location in which to open her storefront for Ellen’s. “I just feel like Downtown is coming back to life and I wanted to be a part of that,” she said. “I also wanted a boutique feel and you just don’t get that in a strip

mall. I just wanted that quaint atmosphere.” After deciding on the location at 36 West Canal Street, Keffaber got to work remodeling the rooms. “We pretty much did a total remodel. Donny Radabaugh and his crew and Bob Mullett did a lot of work – new floors, new walls, paint, light fixtures. My landlord is Doug Lehman and he has just been wonderful and very accommodating and helped me put it all together,” she said. The end result is a cozy and elegant boutique with wood floors, track lighting, attractive displays and a dressing room (continued on page 8)

theft. Both inmates were wearing jailissued clothing and video evidence shows both traveling west on Main Street from the Jail. According to Wabash County Sheriff Bob Land, the department received information from the Peru Police Department that the suspects were seen at a Peru residence at approximately 10 a.m. The resident did not notify law enforcement until approximately 2 p.m. because of fear of retaliation. Officers from the Wabash County Sheriff ’s Department and Peru Police D e p a r t m e n t searched the area with no results.

Perry is 5’9” and weighs 165 pounds. He has a shaved head and hazel eyes. Hanaway is described as being 6 feet tall, weighing 206 pounds. He is bald and has green eyes. “We have our deputies working all the leads that come in,” Land said of the investigation. “At CHANCE HANAWAY this point, they are still out there.” The investigation is continuing and interviews are being conducted at this time.

Junior Achievement serving Greater Wabash hosts a Bowl-A-Thon

J u n i o r Achievement serving Greater Wabash hosted their annual Bowla-Thon at Cannonball Lanes on Feb. 26. The board of directors recruited teams of five bowlers to participate in the event. Several business men and women along with members of the community put on their bowling shoes to have a great time while raising funds to continue the programs of JA to our local youth. Even if the bowlers didn’t bowl a strike, they helped by making a strike for local students’ education. J u n i o r Achievement is the world’s largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices. JA would like to extend a huge thank you to the sponsors: H a r v e y Hinklemeyers, Crossroads Bank, C r o s s r o a d s Investment Center, Lundquist Real Estate, Wabash Valley Abstract, Wabash County Hospital, and Wabash Realty, LLC. They would also like to thank those that donated door prizes: Honeywell Center, Wabash County YMCA, Beacon, Ford Meter Box, Pizza Hut, Subway, O’Reilly’s, Krogers, J & K Mega Pet, The Rehab Place, Burger King, LaVonne Sparling, Vera Bradley, and more.

tive for Wabash County, spoke to the Wabash Kiwanis Club at its weekly meeting on March 13. Means discussed the mission of the ACS, the upcoming Relay for Life event and the different ways that people in the community can get involved. This year’s local Relay for Life event will be held at Paradise Springs from 3 p.m. to 3 p.m. on June 8-9. Means informed the club members of the significance of the 24hour time period. “Relay for Life is overnight because cancer never sleeps,” she said. “The light and darkness of the day and night parallel the physical effects, emotion and mental state of a cancer patient while undergoing treatment. “It goes for 24 hours so one can share the experience with one

who is battling cancer.” Teams are comprised of 10 to 15 participants, each of whom is asked to solicit donations from family and friends. Means informed the group that the most frequent question she hears is about where the donations go. “The largest portion of the money that we receive goes to patient support,” she reported. “Significant amounts are also allocated to cancer research and prevention.” This is Means’s first year as the ACS’s local representative in Wabash, and she is

hopeful that this year’s event will be successful in garnering support in the organization’s fight against cancer. “One of the primary goals of Relay for Life is to raise funds, and there are several opportunities to support ACS’s mission throughout the event,” she said. The Luminaria ceremony is one such opportunity. “For a $10 donation, a person can honor a friend or family member who has battled cancer,” Means said. This year’s Luminaria ceremony will take place at 9 p.m., where hundreds

SCUBA divers wear equipment that adapts divers to the underwater world, allowing the diver to swim below the water’s surface in lakes and oceans. The majority of SCUBA divers enjoy diving for recreational purposes - to see the beauty that lives in the waters. However, SCUBA divers also traverse the depths of the waters for commercial, scientific and military purposes. While some SCUBA divers enjoy diving in lakes, and a few will explore a river’s waters, when most people think of SCUBA diving, they think of diving into the pristine ocean waters on some tropical getaway.

to become a certified SCUBA diver first. To accomplish this, it is recommended that you partake in a beginner’s diving class. In such a class, you will learn the skills required of a knowledgeable SCUBA diver such as equipment usage, defense techniques and water awareness training. This is exactly the class that the Wabash County YMCA is offering on May 19 at 9 a.m. and again on June 2 at 9 a.m. This one-hour introductory SCUBA session will be taught by professionals from ‘We Teach SCUBA’, and will provide nondivers with an opportunity to experience underwater diving in the safety of the Y pool. Potential divers must be 13 years or older to participate, and participants are asked to bring a towel and bathing suit. All other equipment will be provided for the session including mask, fins, snorkel, BCD and weight belt. After taking this class, should participants want to pursue certification in SCUBA, a more extensive, comprehensive set of classes will be offered June 25 through July 19. You may register to participate at the member services desk at the Wabash County YMCA during normal business hours, or by phone at 260-563YMCA(9622). Class size is limited.

Student ministries pastor begins ministry at Wabash Friends Church

“Youth are comfortable with who they are, which is an excellent place for transformation to begin,” said Brandon Eaton, student pastor at Wabash Friends Church, in regard to why he

enjoys working with students. “Authenticity is required for change to take place and this is when students are wrestling with choices and decisions about who they are

and what their life is all about. They’re a mess and they’re okay with that,” he said. Eaton and his wife, Savannah, and two year-old daughter, Clover, moved from North Carolina to begin his new position as student pastor on Feb. 15. It’s the arena of student ministries that he feels most comfortable, having served as a student pastor for the past two years. Eaton interviewed and was offered the position in December. His first impressions led him to believe this would be a good fit. “I was excited about the new space in the Family Center and the students’ willingness to connect. That makes it easy to come

Winchester, Jr. is also known for his charisma, work ethic, leadership and entrepreneurial abilities. The donors seek to encourage educational attainment of young people who share with these men demonstrated talent, commitment and motivation to lead and serve others. “Dallas Sr. and Dallas Jr. were important people in my life”, says Jamie Dunmore, granddaughter and niece respectively. “Their work ethic and commitment to others was inspiring. I am pleased to develop this endowment to help others who share the same sense of citizenship and community. I think they would be pleased to know that by their inspiration, more Wabash County grad-

commitment take root.” Aptly named, ROOTS is the name of the program that includes students seventh through twelfth grade and meets Sunday evenings, 6:308 p.m., in the Family Center.

Senator Lugar can’t vote in Indiana precinct, board says Senator Richard Lugar of Indiana has been ruled ineligible to vote back home, a blow for the six- term Republican facing a Tea Party-backed primary challenger who says the senator is out of touch with his state. The Marion County Election Board voted 2-1 along party lines, with two Democratic members finding Lugar and his wife ineligible to vote in his home precinct. Lugar, the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is registered to vote with an Indianapolis address of a home he sold in 1977. He now lives in northern Virginia. The board ruled

there is “substantial reason” to believe a non-criminal election violation occurred because the Lugars “abandoned” their Indiana residence, losing their right to vote there. In a statement, Lugar Spokesman Andy Fisher said the senator and his wife “scrupulously complied” with state law and that three Indiana attorneys general have issued opinions stating that Lugar complied with residency requirements. The state allows a past residence to be considered Congress members’ home for voting purposes while they are in office, Fisher said. “The Lugars have also sought and followed the express direction of every legitimate government authority to have addressed the question,” Fisher said. Lugar can appeal. A spokeswoman for the Marion County board, Angie Nussmeyer, said Lugar can appeal the decision to a local court. He could register to vote from another residence. The Lugar family owns a farm in the county,

geologist who in 2010 won re-election as state treasurer. He claims support of most of the state’s 92 Republican county chairmen and is drawing support of outside conservative groups. That includes the anti-tax group Club for Growth and Freedomworks, a group led by former Republican House Majority Leader Richard Armey that supports the Tea Party Movement. F r e e d o m Wo rk s operates a super-PAC that can make unlimited donations to support or oppose candidates. It has spent more than $30,000 against Lugar so far and $65,000 to aid Mourdock’s candidacy, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks campaign giving. Russ Walker, political director of the superPAC, said more money will pour in to defeat Lugar in coming weeks. Lugar has a substantial advantage in his campaign war chest. At the end of December, he reported having more than $4 million in cash on hand for his re-election fund. That compared with the

Mourdock campaign’s $362,699. Donnelly had $846,956. A former aide to Lugar has established a Super-PAC to support Lugar’s push for a seventh Senate term. The Indiana Values Super PAC has raised $10,000 so far. It hasn’t made any independent expenditures, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Mourdock’s campaign aired a TV ad in Indianapolis saying Lugar is disconnected from Indiana. Lugar left the state for Washington in 1977, “when disco topped the charts and leisure suits were in style,” the ad said. He went on to vote against conservatives on immigration, the 2008 bank bailout and for both of President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominees, the ad said. “The fact that Senator Lugar hired a team of high-priced lawyers to fight for his right to use a legal technicality so that he doesn’t have to live among Hoosiers just proves our point about how out of touch he is,” Chris Conner, a Mourdock spokesman, said.

although it isn’t clear whether it would satisfy the requirement for a residence. The ruling won’t affect Lugar’s ability to seek re-election in November. State Treasurer Richard Mourdock, a Republican, is challenging Lugar in his May 8 primary. The deadline to file for the primary is April 9. The winner will run against Democratic U.S. Representative Joe Donnelly. Lugar prevailed in an earlier challenge by Mourdock backers to his ability to be on the ballot. The Indiana Election Commission last month ruled Lugar is eligible to seek reelection. The residency controversy doesn’t help Lugar, said Nathan Gonzales, political editor of the nonpartisan Rothenberg Political Report. “I don’t think this is going to decide the election, but the senator and his team just can’t shake this residency story,” Gonzales said. “Constantly being on the defensive isn’t good for any incumbent.” Mourdock is a onetime coal-company

full swing, and she is currently in the process of bringing different product lines into her store. She has recently been approved to carry Miss Me jeans as well as clothing, including tops, belts and purses. “All of the young girls wear Miss Me jeans, they have all of the bling all over the pockets. They are something you can typically only get at Buckle or somewhere like that in Fort Wayne. It’s stuff they

might want for afterprom or that type of thing.” Within six weeks, Ellen’s will also be receiving samples of a new bridesmaid line. “I found them in the Bridal Market in Chicago and I’m really excited because they are not your everyday, frumpy bridesmaid dresses. They are very in-style – new fabrics, new colors – so I’m very excited about that,” she said.

This summer, Keffaber plans to begin offering little girls’ clothing, such as cotton sundresses. She currently offers a small line of shoes and will expand in that area, as well, if necessary.

March 27 is the fifth and sixth Grade Spring Show in the Northfield High School auditorium at 1 p.m. and 7 p .m. FROM NORTHFIELD’S ATTENDANCE SESCRETARY: The attendance rate of a school plays a part in the “grade” that is given for that school. For the first semester of this school year, Northfield’s percentage was 97.02 percent. Ninety-nine students who had perfect attendance enjoyed pizza during one of their lunches in January. The eighth grade class once again had the highest atten-

dance percentage of 97.2 percent so they received an ice cream treat during one of their lunch periods. STEVE AND BECKY BOWMAN will be celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary on April 4.

New DNR firewood rule took effect March 17 As camping season approaches, visitors to DNR properties should prepare for the new DNR firewood rule that took effect on March 17. The Indiana Natural Resources Commission approved a similar firewood policy last year but adopted it as a permanent rule in January. The new rule helps protect forests from the 140 known pests and pathogens that currently affect forests. The pests and pathogens are transported from place to place primarily through the movement of firewood. Under the rule, instate visitors to state parks, reservoirs, state forests and state fish & wildlife areas can bring firewood from home as long as the bark has been removed. The reason for bark removal is insect larvae live in the sapwood under the bark. Visitors from outside Indiana cannot bring firewood from out of state because of federal emerald ash borer quarantines. Guests may also bring firewood into DNR properties, if it is:

- Kiln-dried scrap lumber - Purchased outside the property and bears either a USDA compliance stamp or a state compliance stamp - Purchased from the property campstore or on-site firewood vendor and has a state compliance stamp Regardless of where visitors get their firewood, they should burn it all at the campsite before they leave. In short, the firewood rule means: “Buy it with a stamp, bring it debarked, burn it all.” The rule gives DNR staff the ability to confiscate firewood that does not comply, and gives Indiana Conservation Officers the authority to write a warning or citation for violations, with potential fines up to $500 plus court costs. For more about the rule, see www.firew o o d . d n r. I N . g o v. Vendors who want to sell firewood for use in DNR properties should get or renew their compliance agreements. For details, see: es.pdf.

Indiana Conservation Officers investigate off-road vehicle accident Indiana Conservation Officer Lance Labonte is investigating an off-road vehicle accident that occurred in Huntington County. On March 16, at approximately 8:1 p.m., Robert A. Hipskind, Roanoke, and William Crockett were riding ATV’s eastbound in the 5200 block of Station Rd. in Roanoke.

Crockett was riding ahead of Hipskind in the roadway. As Crockett approached a curve in the roadway, he applied his brakes to slow down. Hipskind, who was riding behind Crockett, slammed on his brakes and turned to avoid a collision. This caused his ATV to roll over, throwing Hipskind from

the machine. Hipskind was transported to Lutheran Hospital in Ft. Wayne, where he was treated for a laceration to the back of his head and a concussion. I.C.O. Labonte was assisted on scene by the Huntington County Sheriff ’s Department, Roanoke Fire, and Parkview Huntington EMS.

South Bend woman arrested on drug charges March 16, at approximately 10:37 p.m., a traffic stop by Indiana State Trooper Daniel Prus led to the arrest of Brittani K. Jarrett, 25, South Bend, on multiple drug charges. Prus had stopped Jarrett’s 2006 Chevrolet Impala for purportedly traveling 73 miles per hour in a posted 60 miles

per hour zone, on U.S. 31 near Eel River Road, in Miami County. During the course of the traffic stop, Prus observed several indicators that Jarrett was possibly involved in illegal activity. A computer check of Jarrett’s operator’s license revealed she was driving while suspended with a previous conviction for driv-

ing while suspended. Prus deployed his narcotic detecting police dog, Zeke, to conduct a free air sniff around the Impala. Zeke gave a positive alert

to the odor of illegal narcotics inside the car. During a subsequent search of the Chevrolet, Trooper Prus allegedly found approximately 50

grams of marijuana, approximately 59 grams of crack cocaine, prescription medication, and drug paraphernalia. Jarrett was incarcerat-

ed in the Miami County Jail on three felony counts for dealing cocaine, possession of a schedule II narcotic drug, and possession of mari-

Indiana State Police makes 373 DUI arrests in statewide campaign

On March 16-17, between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., the Indiana State Police conducted a statewide driving under the influence enforcement project. Enforcement personnel throughout Indiana were assigned to this detail to aggressively seek and arrest impaired drivers. Impaired driving remains one of America’s deadliest problems. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2009, 33,808 people were killed nationally in motor vehicle crashes. That same year, 10,839 people were killed in crashes that involved a driver or motorcyclist with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher. That means every 48 minutes someone died in a crash involving an impaired driver. In Indiana, in 2009, there were a total of 189,676 crashes, 8,855 of them were alcohol related, resulting in 168 deaths. The purpose of the two-day enforcement campaign was to remove impaired drivers from Indiana roadways before they caused needless pain, suffering, and death to innocent victims. The Indiana State Police is committed to reducing the number of impaired driving crashes. Statewide, the twoday enforcement campaign resulted in 373 impaired driving arrests. Troopers also issued 3,717 traffic citations and 6,262 warnings. Officers also made 402 arrests for various criminal violations. In the Indiana State Police Peru District there were 17 impaired driving arrests made. Officers issued 156 traffic citations and 279 warnings. Troopers also made 31 arrests for

various criminal violations. Motorists are encouraged to report suspected impaired drivers by calling 911. Give a vehicle description, location, and direction of travel. Never follow an impaired driver.

Locust and Greenspire Linden. Six flowering trees are available, which include Sargent Cherry, American Hornbeam, Ivory Silk Lilac, Cleveland Pear, Prairiefire Crabapple and Autumn B r i l l i a n c e Serviceberry. The Tree Commission suggests that homeowners consider replacing a lost shade tree with another if there is a wide enough space and no overhead utility lines. For a modest price, homeowners can apply for one replacement tree in their tree lawn. This price includes a two-inch diameter tree from the above list, planting, mulch, and labor costs. Scott’s Landscaping Services will be planting the trees in early spring, weather permitting. The cost of the trees to the Town ranges from $190 to $256. The Walrod Tree Endowment subsidizes the remainder of the cost. Applications and additional information are available at the Town Clerk’s Office, 103 E. Main St., North Manchester, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The application deadline is April 15. The Community Foundation of Wabash County administers the Walrod Tree Endowment.

Timbercrest to present “Successful Aging” educational series Timbercrest Senior Living will present a sevenmonth educational series in 2012 called “Successful Aging.” The series will be held in the T i m b e r c r e s t Assembly Room on the third Thursday of each month starting in April. Every session will start at 9:30 a.m. and will last approximately one hour. Free refreshments will be served. The goal of Successful Aging is to help older adults in North Manchester and surrounding communities age well in all aspects of life physically, mentally, emotionally and financially. Aging is a part of life that all humans will experience at some point. Unlike most stages of life, aging looks different for every generation because of changes in technology, government regulations and medical advances. Successful Aging will show attendees what aging looks like for the current generation and how to apply what they learn. Successful Aging is designed to be a very interactive

program. There will be a free workbook available to all who attend to help them get the most out of each presentation. The workbook will include exercises to do before, during and after every session. These will be optional and will not be required for anyone who a t t e n d s . Participants will be free to choose which sessions they want to attend. Timbercrest has partnered with several local organizations to present a series that will cover a range of topics. In April, Z i m m e r Corporation will discuss joint health and the most recent news in the orthopedic world. May’s topic will be identity protection presented by retired Indiana State Police officer, Rick Oatess. This session is a part of Markle Bank’s Financial E d u c a t i o n Program. The Indiana State Ombudsman’s office will present in June, explaining the ins and outs of the Ombudsman program and how they serve as advocates for seniors.

July’s session will be presented by Living Well in Wabash County. The Alzheimer’s Association will share in August about general memory loss that comes with aging. In S e p t e m b e r, Parkview Whitley will present a session on the special nutrition needs of seniors. The final session in October will feature an overview of the changes to Medicare Part D, which will be offered by G r a n d v i e w Pharmacy. All sessions are open to the public. People of any age are welcome to attend, but the series will be especially helpful to seniors or those who provide care for an older adult. There is no need to make a reservation for any of the sessions, but to request a workbook in advance, contact Danielle Fox at 260-982-3924 or Mark your calendars now for these informative seminars the third Thursday of each month at 9:30 a.m.

Richvalley United Methodist Women met recently Richvalley United Methodist Women (UMW) met recently at the Richvalley United Methodist Church. Pam Smith opened the meeting by reading “Blessed in Mission” from Response magazine and gave the prayer. Monthly reports were given by Joan Day and Ruth Dyson. Self-denial offerings were collected. Vickie Thrush was in charge of sending cards to several community people. The program was presented by Melinda Daugherty – a missionary serving in Lima, Peru, South America. A prayer was offered before Melinda shared how Jesus has worked and is still working in her life. People there are hungering for “the word” through the Bible. Other highlights included Melinda teaching English at university level and teaching conversation clubs; besides building relationships, evangelizing and discipling. She has witnessed God changing many lives and her enthusiasm is overflowing in her love for the Lord.

Roll call was answered by nine members and guests, Jane Cole, Kathy Baker, Carol Day and Melinda Daugherty. Maps were shown where UMW funds are benefiting others through Mission Outreach Giving. An invitation was read for the Lucille Raines Residence Open House on April 16 in Indianapolis. The next meeting will be on April 4; roll call response will be a verse from Luke; Jane Long will give the lesson. Cindi Price asked members to read Pslams before the April meeting and tell which Psalm is their favorite and why they chose that one. Job was discussed with special thoughts about his three friends, Eliphaz, Bildad and Zopher and how Job stayed faithful. Closing devotions were give by Jane Long with a forgiveness theme from Ruth Bell Graham’s book and finished with prayer. Panettone bread and herb cookies were served.

Norsemen fall in regional final

by Gary Andrews The Northfield boys basketball team got one step closer to their ultimate goal March 10 in the first game of the Tipton regional, building a lead as high as 16 points before holding on for a 74-67 win over Frankton. The Norse got off to a good start; settling down the Frankton crowd who was excited at their first ever regional. With 3:12 left in the first quarter Dustin Echard hit to give Northfield a 9-7 lead. The Norse started to take command on a Ryan Givens rebound bucket, going up 13-9 with 2 minutes to play.

Continuing to build their lead, Ethan Stouffer grabbed a rebound and put it back in to make it 17-9. Frankton would score the last four points of the quarter as the Norse led 17-13. Frankton would not back down from the Norse. Northfield led just 28-26 with 1:51 to go, thanks in part to perfect free throw shooting in the first half. Dustin Echard hit two free throws with :35 to put the Norse up 32-28 at the half. Halfway through the third quarter the Norse started to impose their will. Ryan Keaffaber hit a three to put the Norse up 8 and was followed by

two Chad Glasscock steals for buckets, making it 46-35. Northfield kept the heat on, building the lead to 54-38 after a Glasscock three. Frankton would then make a run, cutting the lead to 60-55 with 3:12 left in the game. The last four minutes, Frankton fouled on every possession to get the ball back and the hot Northfield free throw shooting went cold. Stouffer and Glasscock hit one each and it was 64-61 with 1:49 to go. Again, Frankton would foul, this time with Glasscock hitting both to make it 66-61. With :43 left, Northfield led 68-64 when Echard was fouled, hitting one. Up 69-67 the Norse turned the ball over and Frankton had a chance to tie or take the lead, but the Norse came up with the stop. The Norse hit a few more free throws the last remaining seconds to secure the 74-67 win. Chad Glasscock led the Norse with 25 points and 6 rebounds. Dustin Echard added 16 points, 9 rebounds, and 4 assists. Ryan Givens

Medicare? Medicaid? Savings? Assets? Kids?

collected 12 points and 7 rebounds, while Ryan Keaffaber chipped in 11 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 steals. Everyone knew if Northfield and Tipton met in the championship that it would be a slow down slugfest. That would end up being an under statement. The Tipton depth eventually wore down the Norse, who fell 53-38 to the hosts. The two teams got off to a slow start on the offensive side of the ball. Tied at 4 Tipton would score the next five points to take a 9-4 lead. Ryan Givens answered with a bucket and then Ryan Keaffaber hit a three with .04 left and the Norse trailed 11-9 after one. Keaffaber would hit the first bucket of the second quarter to knot the score at 11 when Tipton would go on a 5-0 run. Keaffaber would hit again and was followed by a Collin Dawes three to tie the score at 16. Down 2, Chad Glasscock hit two free throws to tie it again at 18. At 21-18 Givens connected before Tipton hit

right before the buzzer and the Blue Devils led 23-20 at the half. In the third quarter, officials totally lost control of the game, with just 12 total points being scored in the quarter, 10 of them by Tipton. Things were getting chippy, both on the floor and in the stands. Ryan Givens hit the lone Norse bucket with 2:11 to go in the quarter. Tipton led 33-22 after three. Tipton started the fourth quarter on a 11-3 run to increase their lead to 44-25. At 50-30, Ryan Keaffaber hit two buckets, one a three-pointer, followed by an Echard bucket to make it 50-38. Tipton would score the final three points on free throws for the 53-38 final. Ryan Keaffaber led the Norse with 13 points and 5 rebounds. Chad Glasscock added 11 points, while Ryan Givens chipped in 9 points and 4 rebounds. Northfield finished the season with an outstanding record of 22-4, which included a 20 game winning streak, a TRC Championship, and a Sectional Championship.

Manchester College splits with #24 Heidelberg (MC) Manchester picked up a 10-4 win in game one of the March 17 doubleheader against #24 Heidelberg, but fell 15-4 in game two. In game one Manchester scored three runs in both the second and third innings to assist in the 10 total runs on the day. Dylan Padgett picked up the win, throwing seven innings with six strikeouts and four runs allowed on eight hits. Jordan Nieman had a two run homer in the second inning and finished 1-4 on the day with two RBI.

Spartan softball posts two wins in Florida

(MC) Manchester’s softball team picked up a pair of wins in their opening day action from Clermont, Florida on March 18. Manchester opened up with a 4-3 win over Babson, as the Spartans overcame a 3-0 deficit in the first inning and scored two runs in the fourth and sixth innings. Maureen Lund recorded eight strikeouts in seven innings, giving up just three hits in the game. Janikka Tillotson was 2-3 in the game with an RBI, while Danielle Howell went 1-2 with a run scored and an RBI. Ashlea Nash struck out five batters and threw just a one hitter as Manchester defeated SUNY Oneonta St. 10-3.

Emily Willmann was a perfect 4-4 in the game with two RBIs and two runs scored. Amy Hommema was 2-3 with a run and an RBI. Holly Morris and Kendall Jefferies were each 2-4 at bat.

$2,019 per month taxfree. To be eligible, veterans must have served 90 consecutive days or more with at least one day during a wartime period (World War II, Korea, etc) and meet a few medical and financial eligibility criteria. As part of our ongoing commitment to making eldercare more affordable, we are working to educate the local commu-

During our workshop, we will be reviewing the eligibility criteria and show how thousands of families, even in cases of higher net worth, have become eligible for this benefit helping to offset the cost of the care being provided.

Life on the Home Front: Wabash County During World War II is the name of the next show in the Wabash County Historical Museum’s changing exhibit gallery. “Lots of people have asked me how we are going to follow up our Historic Harleys exhibit,” said Tracy Stewart, executive director of the Museum. “I think we’ve come up with something really special!” Opening to the public on March 27, the exhibit will tell what life was like in the county during 1941 to 1945. “There are so many unique stories to tell,” said Stewart. “We’ve had a hard time narrowing it down to the number we can accommodate.” Topics to be explored include conscientious objectors, war-time retooling at factories, bond drives and other ways Wabash County residents supported the

war effort. “One of my favorite parts of this exhibit is about former Mayor Homer T. Showalter, who wrote a newsletter and sent it out to all the soldiers. It might have taken months to reach the boys, but it was a touch of home that they loved. “Amazingly, when we were just beginning to talk about featuring Mayor Showalter’s newsletters, someone came in with a packet of letters, tied together with string. These letters were from some of the soldiers, sent back to Showalter to say thank you and tell him some of their own news. Telling a story is much richer when you have both sides of correspondence!” Margie Stewart, chosen by Dwight Eisenhower to be the only poster girl for the Army, was from Wabash County. Her story will also be highlighted. “We have four origi-

nal posters featuring Margie. She did a series of 14, in which she writes to her special soldier about the virtues of saving money and investing in war bonds. She had the all-American look that must have been a dream for soldiers.” Margie Stewart (now Johnson) lives in California and still has a connection to her “boys,” as she calls them. “I spoke with her recently and she told me some stories about traveling across the United States by train with Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney, Lucille Ball and other stars to sell war bonds. Her part in the war effort was tremendous.” “Of course we want to honor the people from Wabash County who served. We’d like to invite people who have World War II uniforms to loan them to the Museum for the display. Depending on how many there are out there, we hope to use

them all,” said Brian Haupert, facilities coordinator. Anyone who would like to loan a uniform should call 260-563-9070 for an appointment. The sole sponsor of the exhibit is Wabash County Hospital. According to the hospital’s CEO, Marilyn Custer-Mitchell, “Wabash County Hospital is happy to be sponsoring the Life on the Home Front exhibit at the Wabash County Historical Museum. Part of the hospital’s mission is to support our community. We felt sponsoring this exhibit was a great way to do that and also honor the many veterans who served during this great war, those that served here at home during World War II, and all those who continue to serve our country today.” The exhibit will open to the public on March 27. The museum is located at 36 E. Market St., Downtown Wabash.

Wabash records record deer harvest

Indiana deer hunters bagged fewer deer during the 2011 season than the year before, but the 129,018 total was still the fourth-best season on record, according to a report from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Division of Fish & Wildlife. The total represented a 3.7 percent drop from the all-time record harvest of 134,004 in 2010. In the 60-year history of the

state’s modern deer hunting era, hunters have bagged almost 2.99 million deer. “It becomes somewhat predictable that the harvest would fall in line close to where it has the past couple of years,” said Chad Stewart, deer management biologist for the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife. “It appears in some areas the deer population is in fact down, but those areas aren’t many. Overall, the

deer herd is thriving in our state.” The 2011 statewide harvest was still almost 5,500 deer above the 10-year average, and 64 counties registered totals that were higher than their 10-year annual averages. “Though there are always a lot of complaints that come across my desk during and immediately after deer season from hunters who are not seeing the numbers they typically see, the decline of the Indiana deer herd is greatly exaggerated,” Stewart said. “Local populations in some areas may be down, but the state’s herd is overall abundant and healthy.” Fourteen counties had record harvests: Boone (460), Crawford (1,925), Decatur (727), Floyd (712), Jennings (1,962), Marion (329), Montgomery (1,204), Randolph (667), Shelby (396), Sullivan

(1,917), Vermillion (1,380), Vigo (1,507), Wabash (1,798) and White (1,233). It was the third straight record year for Boone and Sullivan, and the second straight for J e n n i n g s , M o n t g o m e r y, Randolph, Shelby and Wabash. Steuben County led the state for the seventh straight year with 3,532 deer reported. Switzerland County was second with 3,309, followed by Kosciusko (3,123), Noble (3,025), Dearborn (2,885), Franklin (2,876), Harrison (2,680), Washington (2,605), Parke (2,561) and LaGrange (2,523). The deer hunting season began in urban zones on Sept. 15, followed by a twoday youth only weekend (Sept. 24-25) and then the early archery (Oct. 1-Nov. 27), firearm (Nov. 12-27), muzzleloader (Dec. 419) and late archery

(Dec. 3-Jan. 1). Hunters using muzzleloaders logged their third consecutive record year by bagging 33,571 deer in either the firearm or muzzleloader segments, including a record 19,235 in the muzzleloader segment. That was a 10.5 percent increase from the 2010 muzzleloader segment. Hunters also harvested 79,717 deer in the firearm segment (down 7.5 percent from 2010); 26,021 in early archery (down 1 percent); 1,726 in late archery (up 2.5 percent); and 2,319 in the youth season (down 0.8 percent). The early archery total includes deer taken in urban deer zones. Weather may have been a factor in the lower overall harvest. The Indiana State Climate Office reported above normal temperatures 21 days in November 2011, with

eight of those days being 10 degrees or more above normal, making it the ninth warmest November since 1895. It was also the third wettest November in history and the wettest in the past 26 years. “Both of those can have an effect on not only deer movement in November but also hunter participation,” Stewart said. “It’s certainly one potential reasonable explanation for the smaller harvest during firearm season, which contributes a great deal to the overall harvest, but it’s impossible to say if the decreased harvest is a function of smaller deer populations in some areas or weather factors keeping hunters and deer at bay.” Hunters purchased 276,398 deer licenses in 2011, the most since the DNR began its computerized pointof-sale license system

in 2006. It was a 3 percent increase from 2010 (268,485 licenses). All categories showed increases from 2010, led by military/refuge licenses at 23.5 percent and muzzleloader 9 percent, plus a 5 percent increase in youth licenses. “Indiana seems to be somewhat of an exception to the norm in that our hunters continue to come out and participate in hunting,” Stewart said. “This can’t be said for many other states that are seeing alarming declines in their hunter numbers. “Whether it is the tradition that is ingrained in Indiana hunters or benefits seen from an emphasis on recruiting and retaining hunters within the state is hard to say, but something is working, and that is positive.”

real and indisputable immeasurable value of sponsoring a child in Ghana through Challenging Heights: Emmanuel and I made boiled cassava (one of my all-time favorite foods - in or out of Ghana) and stew on my gas cylinder and Matt’s electric stove. We argued and elbowed each other away from the stew pot (I wanted to make it all by myself; he was convinced I needed help). Somewhere along the line, he started talking and I heard more of his story (it comes in bits and pieces). “I know God is caring for me. I don’t know where I would be if He wasn’t. And Senior James (founder of Challenging Heights). He has helped me a lot too. When I was at the government school, I couldn’t even spell my name. My friends in class had to write it for me. And I smelled bad. After my mother died (leaving him an orphan), Senior James brought me to Challenging Heights. They put me in class three because that’s the class I was in at the other school but I couldn’t do the work so they sent me back to KG2. Then I was able to move to class

three and now I’m in class five. And next term, I’ll be in class six. At the other school, the government paid the teachers so they didn’t care if we learned or not. I didn’t like learning. But here, the parents pay school fees and the teachers know that if we don’t learn, the parents will come and be angry and say ‘I’m paying school fees each term and why!? My child can’t write his name or read!’ So here they make us to learn hard. I know to bathe two times each day and to keep myself clean. And now I like to learn -

even if I don’t know a word, I will break it in two-two and try to spell it.” This morning I joined three teachers and 47 students for Wednesday morning worship in classroom three. Gray cinderblock walls. Wooden desks. Windows covered with screen and iron bars. Two cracked chalkboards. Wooden slats in the ceiling not quite covered by the concrete. I watched Emmanuel play the drums and sing about the goodness of God with his head thrown back and his eyes closed and the look of

one who has been transported to a place of pure joy on his beautiful face. Bright futures brought to Emmanuel (and Kwesi and Abigail and John and Patience and . . .) by Challenging Heights and many of you!
