Habitat for Humanity to acquire Ferry Street property by Danielle Smith The March 28 meeting of the Wabash County Board of Commissioners began with County H i g h w a y Superintendent John Martin presenting a memorandum of understanding regarding an unofficial detour of SR 16 while the drain structure is replaced. The detour will travel on CR 500 E, CR 700 N and CR 650 E before returning to SR 16. Wabash County Sheriff Bob Land then reported that they are currently housing 68 inmates at Wabash County Jail. Medicaid for the inmate that recently received a liver transplant expired March 28. Health Professionals, Ltd., will pay the first $1,500 for medication; any medical expenses incurred thereafter will be Wabash County’s responsibili-

by Danielle Smith The LIFE Center, Wabash, will soon begin using a sonogram system in their quest to assist women in crisis pregnancies. Jeni Friedersdorf, former executive director of the LIFE Center, presented her dream of purchasing a sonogram system for the LIFE Center to the board of directors a few years ago. “I had heard of other centers getting ultrasounds and had kind of looked into that and thought that would be a great idea,” Friedersdorf said. “The proof is that if a woman sees her baby, more than likely, she will choose to carry the baby rather than have an abortion. That’s our whole outlook. We’re here to help women and help save children’s lives.” The board agreed it was a project that they would work

toward several years down the road. However, an unexpected donation from Victory Christian Church, North Manchester, expedited the process. Wabash Council #2957 of Knights of Columbus followed suit with a tenderloin fry that raised $8,600. Donations began coming in from local churches, businesses and individuals. “People started hearing about it and started giving, then we had an anonymous donation from someone in Florida that heard about it in the paper,” Friedersdorf said. Fundraising, however, was only a portion of what needed to be accomplished in order to make Friedersdorf ’s dream a reality. The LIFE Center had to be converted from a women’s service center to a medical facili-

They enlisted the help of the National Institute for Family and Life (NIFL), an organization that helps pregnancy cen-

Konyha The Indiana Department of W o r k f o r c e Development released February 2011 unemployment data on March 21. Included with the preliminary data is the monthly “Ranking of County Data” in which the Wabash County unemployment rate of 9.2 percent is ranked

62nd in the state. This is an improvement of 50 places since the height of the recession when Wabash had the 12th highest unemployment rate in the state. The Wabash County unemployment rate is now lower than seven of the counties that make up the Northeast Indiana Region with only Wells County at 9.1 percent and Adams County at 8.8 percent experiencing lower rates than Wabash County. Bill Konyha, president and CEO of the E c o n o m i c Development Group of Wabash County, Inc. (EDG) cited several factors in the improving economic

and employment conditions in Wabash County. According to Konyha, EDG, Wabash Mayor Robert Vanlandingham, the Wabash City Council, Wabash County Commissioners and County Council, the North Manchester Town Council, and EDG created an environment that is supportive of new business investment, and that this environment encourages both new businesses and existing businesses to invest in Wabash County. In 2010 alone, this cooperative environment led to the private sector investing more than $70 million and the creation 472 jobs. Konyha also stated

that 2011 holds forth promise of additional investment and job creation as a number of opportunities are pursued by EDG. Two of the 10 current attraction projects being worked by EDG have given verbal commitments. One stated that the initial attraction to Wabash County is the cooperation among the local units of government. Konyha also stated that two national site selection consultants advised that this cooperation among local units of government have Wabash County on the national radar screen. Konyha added, “One of the attraction projects is slated for the new Wabash

Business Park. We believe that it will be the development catalyst that gets things moving.” A second attraction project also committed to develop its facility in the Business Park, but “it is not nearly as far along”, said Konyha. A third project, one not slated for the business park, is the most advanced. The leadership of EDG and the cooperation of the City, County and Town of North Manchester were recently cited by Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock and Lt. Governor Becky Skillman during separate visits to Wabash County. “What you are

doing is being noticed in Indianapolis and around the state,” said Mourdock, during the first of two February speeches in Wabash County. Skillman was the keynote speaker during the EDG Annual meeting on March 4. During her speech, she said, “Regional approaches to economic development and other matters are emerging as the new national norm. Wabash County efforts are being copied by other rural counties in Indiana, a tribute to the effectiveness of your efforts.”

Chamber announces March Blue Ribbon Business

HANKS CONSTRUCTION, INC. was named the Wabash Chamber’s Blue Ribbon Business of the Month for March. Hank Eilts, founder of Hanks Construction, has worked with hydraulic equipment since 1955. Hank’s daughters are part owners of the business. (photo provided)

by Jarrod McKee, Chamber Membership Committee H a n k s Construction, Inc. is being recognized as the Wabash Chamber’s Blue Ribbon Business of the Month for March. Many Wabash citizens automatically

associate Hank Eilts with basketball like you do peanut butter with jelly. Hank spends much of his time in a basketball gym, whether it’s shooting baskets, watching high school games, or at the YMCA watching his grandkids. When Hank isn’t in a gym,

he spends time on a piece of hydraulic equipment, as he has since 1955. Hank started digging tile ditches as a kid with his brothers. This would only be a foundation for the future to come. After serving in the service from 1952-1954, he began trenching and

working a hydraulic excavator. “It has turned into a hydraulic world,” stated Hank. In 1969, after time working on roads for different contractors across the state, he started his own business and moved to Wabash. He caught the upswing as he owned the only hydraulic excavator in Wabash County for over 10 years. When Hank isn’t driving the free throw lane to the basketball goal, he’s driving on roads that he helped build. From I-65 to I465, Hwy 24, and more, Hank has contributed to the construction of roads, bridges and buildings. Hank also orchestrated several major local projects, including Honeywell Center’s Ford Theatre and schools including Chester, Southwood, Northfield, Sharp Creek, Metro North and Laketon. Hank attributes the enjoyment of his work to the people he has worked with and the

repeat business he has done with customers. H a n k s Construction, Inc. is a family business. His daughters, Tamera Eilts-Helm and Karen Walters, own part of the business. Jackie, his wife of 46 years, did all the bookwork when the business first started. His employees have worked for him for several years. Hank has been a member of

Relay for Life of Wabash County to be held June 10-11

There is alarming news in the fight against cancer. This year, cancer is poised to take over as the number one killer of Americans, surpassing heart disease. The good news is that nearly half of all cancer deaths are preventable, and that events like Relay for Life, not only educate people on what they can do to reduce their cancer risk, but also

raise funds that lead to better treatment and more lives saved. This year’s Relay will be held at Paradise Spring, Wabash, June 10-11, from 11 a.m. to 11 a.m. While the event is still several months away, event planners are currently recruiting more teams to join the event. Teams are often made up of coworkers, friends and family members.

Many businesses, schools, organizations and religious groups also build teams. Prior to the Relay event, team members raise dollars by fundraising and securing sponsorships. During the Relay, teams camp out overnight and take turns walking a track in an effort to raise awareness and funds in the fight against cancer.

This year marks the 14th year for the Relay for Life of Wabash County. At the event, the Luminaria and Survivor Ceremonies offer us time to remember those we’ve lost and celebrate those who have won the battle, while the Fight Back Ceremony gives everyone a chance to make a personal commitment to how they’re going to take

action against cancer throughout the year. New this year, canned goods will be used to anchor the paper sacks in the Luminaria display. Team captains are asked to bring canned goods to Paradise Spring either the Thursday before or Friday of the Relay and place them in the designated drop off area. If

not able to drop off at the Relay site, canned goods may be delivered to the Presbyterian Church, 123 W. Hill St., Wabash. All canned goods collected will go to F.I.S.H. and the Wabash County Animal Shelter upon completion of the Relay. If you are interested in starting or joining a team, log on to

and follow the links to the Relay for Life of Wabash County page. If you’re not able to join a team, simply log on to make a donation. For more information, call Deanna Unger at 260-563-3185 (work) or 260-5632878 (home). Together we can create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

Wabash County YMCA offers karate classes

CASA volunteer shares thoughts on program

Dear editor, Recently there have been articles on an organization called CASA and their need for volunteers. CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate and we represent children who have been removed from an unsafe family environment. Yes, I am a volunteer. If you asked if it is fun to be a CASA volunteer, I would have to answer, “Only occasionally.” Why do I do this? As we were moving toward semi-retirement, I knew I wanted to become active in service for children. I looked into various options and decided to support the CASA program. I have been a CASA volunteer for over a year and I can describe it as rewarding, challenging and frustrating. It is rewarding when I look into the eyes of my CASA child and see them sparkle.

and the prayer they wrote explains why I chose CASA: “Dear Heavenly Father, We want our home to be peaceful, where everyone works together. We want a family that loves each other and shows it by being kind and nice and where every family member is treated with respect. We want a happy home that is full of caring and cooperation. We want a home where there are no fights, where no one gets hit and where people are not rude. We want a family that

helps each other. We want to be able to say I’m sorry and know we will be forgiven. In Jesus name, Amen.” I am a CASA volunteer and I do this for the same reason every CASA volunteer does: We want to help children

find what they deserve – a home where they feel safe and loved. If you would like information on becoming a CASA volunteer, please call the CASA office at 260-569-0533. Mary Earle

LIFE Center gears up to offer ultrasounds... Continued from front page client service manager. For one person to do all of it is just way too much. We’ve always had an administrative assistant and we hired a nurse,” Friedersdorf said. The Newly-hired Nurse Manager Julie Willmert and Executive Director Cheryl Meyer traveled to Virginia for a three-day training conference. “The nurses got to practice ultrasounds and learn the ins and outs of what they can and cannot do for the ultrasounds,” Meyer said. She went on to explain that the nurse manager only has the authority to confirm that the pregnancy is viable; she cannot disclose the sex of the baby. “As directors, we went over the basic day-to-day operations of the facility like how to manage staff and fundraising. We’re supported through fundraising, grants, individuals

and churches. We got to meet other directors and bounce ideas off of each other,” Meyer said. The sonogram system, which carries a retail value of $32,000, arrived at the LIFE Center in January, but will not be used until Willmert has completed a predetermined number of supervised scans. They hope to find a doctor’s office that will allow her to fulfill that requirement. Once the system is in use, it will be standard to perform an ultrasound scan with every client that tests positive for p r e g n a n c y. Friedersdorf expects this service to help them reach more women that may be considering abortion. “In order to have the abortion they are seeking they have to know how far along they are. With an ultrasound we know exactly how far

along they are so they can come here to get that information. We’re hoping that will draw more people in,” Friedersdorf said. Once a woman seeks help from the LIFE Center she will receive resources and information regarding whatever she chooses to do, whether it be parenting, adoption or abortion. “We tell them the risks and what kind of abortion to expect based on how far along they are. We don’t refer them for abortion or give them information about where to go. We tell them questions they should ask the doctor so that they are safe and know exactly what’s going on,” Friedersdorf explained. The LIFE Center has been in operation since 1984, and has been at its present location, 78 W. Hill St., Wabash,

since 2007. “It started with a few nurses who saw a big teen pregnancy rate here in Wabash County. We were one of the highest in the state and we still are,” Friedersdorf said. The LIFE Center provides information about birth control, housing, adoption agencies, abstinence and sexually transmitted diseases. They also help mothers by providing baby clothes, diapers, wipes, formula and all other necessities for those in need. “We try to do everything we can for those who can’t provide for themselves. We try to make it a little easier for them,” Friedersdorf said. The LIFE Center is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 1-4 p.m. They can be found online at

will be shadowed by a high school student to familiarize him with emergency management. Jeff Hobson, director of Community Corrections, requested and was granted permission to fill two part-time positions for staff to perform house checks. Larry Manning, a representative of Habitat for Humanity, inquired about a vacant lot on Ferry Street, which the organization hopes to acquire to construct a home for an underprivileged family. The home that formerly sat on the property burnt down in 2007. The property went to tax sale and received no bids and is slated to be available for purchase in the Commissioners’ sale in April. The commissioners agreed to award the property to Habitat for Humanity. County Attorney Steve Downs will draft a resolution.

IHS Press announces the release of Hanna’s Town The Indiana Historical Society Press is proud to announce the release of Hanna’s Town. Written by W. William Wimberly II, this book is suitable for adult readers and depicts the history of 19th century Wabash. In late autumn of 1902, a macabre scene unfolded at the original burial ground of Wabash, which had been called both the Old Cemetery and Hanna’s Cemetery. The newest four graves held whatever might be left of the corpse of Colonel Hugh Hanna, who was the founding father and civic icon

of the prosperous and picturesque community. Historical records show that, by 1902, Wabash was neither an ideal society nor even outstandingly progressive for its time, and it continued to display rustic and seedy aspects of its unpolished past. Wabash was still home to racism, gender inequity, crime, prostitution, pollution as well as wide divisions between rich and poor, drunk and sober, labor and management, educated and uneducated. However, before the complications of the 20th century washed

over them, Wabash citizens did have reasons to stand tall and proud. The city contained an almost palpable optimism, a bustling economy, civic pride, a sense of community, architectural achievements and various other cultural pretensions – all of which more than fulfilled any visionary hopes early settles may have cherished. By the time its founder was reburied, the Hanna’s town had achieved a kind of apotheosis: progressive, confident and quite possibly gorgeous. W. William Wimberly II received

a PhD in early American history from Indiana University. He holds degrees from Hanover College and Princeton T h e o l o g i c a l Seminary. Also an ordained minister, he has served Presbyterian churches in Brazil, Spencer, Laporte, and Fort Wayne. Wimberly is married to Tracy Temple, a Wabash native, and they have two sons. He has been honored with the Sagamore of the Wabash and Hanover College’s Civic Leadership Award.

Wabash Friends Counseling Center hosting grief and loss support group The Wabash Friends Counseling Center has begun a grief and loss support group called GriefShare. This support group began March 21 and will run for 13 weeks on Mondays, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., in the conference room at the Wabash Friends Counseling Center, located at 3563 S. SR 13.

on Lincoln (as well as photographs and original documents) and he is founder of the Lincoln Society of Virginia. The entertaining speaker will deliver the 2011 Jeanette and Harry Henney ’35 Lecture and receive an honorary doctoral degree from Manchester College. The March 28 free program begins at 7 p.m. in Cordier Auditorium; reservations are not necessary. “Abraham Lincoln said, ‘If you want to test a man’s character, give him power.’ Our nation’s 16th president, whose character and leadership Phillip Stone has studied for decades, would certainly agree the president emeritus of

Bridgewater College has passed this test,” said Manchester President Jo Young Switzer. For 16 years as president of his alma mater, Stone led Bridgewater College on a transformational journey of intellectual, financial and physical growth. During his leadership from 1994 to 2010, endowment growth secured Bridgewater’s future; academic programs, facilities and technology expanded; and enrollment nearly d o u b l e d . (Bridgewater, like Manchester, is a Church of the Brethren college.) For 24 years prior to his Bridgewater presidency, Stone practiced law, rising

to the leadership of the Virginia Bar Association. A highly respected and frequently quoted Lincoln scholar, Stone also is a member of the Advisory Board of the U.S. L i n c o l n Bicentennial Commission and the Virginia Lincoln Bicentennial Commission. The Jeanette and Harry Henney ‘35 Lectureship was established by Dr. Jane E. Henney, a 1969 graduate of Manchester College and member of its Board of Trustees. The former commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration currently is a professor of medicine for the University of Cincinnati.

Area churches host Winchester Senior Center The Lower Lights in April offers variety of April programs The Lower Lights, a touring choir from the Appalachian Mountain community of Lost Creek, Ky., will perform April 9 and 10 at a number of churches in and around North Manchester. The public is invited to attend any of the services and enjoy the music and ministry of The Lower Lights. The schedule includes the following appearances: April 9, 2 p.m. at Timbercrest Senior Living Community; April 10, 11 a.m. at the Congregational Christian Church, 1 p.m. at First Brethren Church and at 6 p.m. at Collamer Christian Church. A freewill offering will be taken at each service for The Lower Lights. The Lower Lights is a choir ranging in ages from 6 to 23 years old that primarily seeks ways of spreading the gospel of

Jesus Christ through music. Songs and dialog are used to tell a musical story of praise and commitment to God. This group has traveled mainly throughout Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania since it started in 1973. Riverside Christian Training School was opened shortly after Rev. George and Ada Drushal were sent to southeaster n Kentucky to establish a Brethren church in the community. For more than a hundred years, Riverside has been “A Light in the Hills,” guiding students to become better people spiritually, academically, socially and physically. Since 2000, the North Manchester First Brethren Church has taken a mission team of youth and families to work at the Riverside Christian School.

The teams hold Vacation Bible School at the Drushal Memorial Brethren Church and remodel and repair facilities and support the staff of Riverside. In the years that have followed, many people from the North Manchester community, including some from Victory Christian Fellowship and Congregational Christian Church, have joined the First Brethren Church on these mission trips. Relationships have been built with the children as each year the teams continue doing VBS, while lots of work and maintenance is done to help the school. For more information about performances or how you might help the Riverside Christian School, please contact Pastor JP Freeman at 260-9822882 or

covered liver; are you hungry yet? This week we have been preparing to host our fifth annual AYC Fear Factor Challenge. The idea is to compete for a prize by completing three rounds of eating some unpleasant food. The rules are simple, you’re out if you walk away or throw up. Round one is usually very competitive and most participants move on. However, by the end of round two it starts to become clear who really wants the prize; some walk away from their plates without even trying because it just doesn’t seem worth it to them, while others have decided they will do whatever it takes to win. Their determi-

nation is based on how much they value the prize. If circumstances make you feel like giving up (or throwing up) this week, just remember the rules of life are different than Fear Factor rules: - You’re not “out” just because you may have walked away in the past. - Keep trying, God wants you to succeed – your life is worth it. “I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.”Philippians 3:14. Access Youth Center, 74 W. Canal St., Wabash, is open for middle/high school only for Wednesday Teen Church, 7 - 8 p.m.; Friday Open Night, 7 10 p.m.; Saturday Open Night, 6 - 9 p.m.; and open for all ages, Monday-Friday, 3:30 4:30 p.m.

nominational agency that fights hunger and poverty, and provides disaster relief around the world. Twenty-five percent of the proceeds stay in the local community.

Considering a New Lower?

A new lower may NOT be the answer to your problems! Due to the bone loss which occurs once teeth are removed, it is often difficult to be satisfied with a lower denture.

County farms and land with metal detectors looking for artifacts from old glass to ceramic dolls. They love to search around old farmhouses and part of the fun of searching is trying to pinpoint sites in Wabash County where settlements or Native American villages were located. They use maps and rely on information provided by the current landowner to try to locate the exact area they want to search. They always obtain permission from the landowner and always ask if they can keep what they find or if the landowner wants to keep the item. Some of the items they have found and that they brought to share with

our members and guests were bells from a horse harness, Indian stone marbles, pieces of very small ceramic dolls and a piece of brass which has been identified as coming from an English short saber sword. This was a most interesting program and it is evident that these gentlemen thoroughly enjoy their hobby. Devotions were given by Frances Kipp. Regent Jean Wright told members that she plans to attend the State Conference in Indianapolis during the month of May. The members voted to donate $15 to this annual event. Members are asked to bring finger food to the next meeting, which will be held
