Wabash County holds primary elections: race for sheriff a “Land”slide by Eric Stearley Wabash County residents headed for the polls on May 6 to cast their ballots in the 2014 Primary Election. When the voting centers closed, a total of 4,104 county residents had exercised their right to vote, representing 18.35 percent of those registered. While this number was significantly lower than the 5,609 who made it to the polls during the 2012 primary, (which represented 25.28 percent of reg-

istered voters) the low turnout was typical of midterm election cycles, which typically garner only 70 percent of the ballots that presidential election cycles bring. When the votes were tallied in the most notable primary race, it was clear that Sheriff Robert E. Land came out ahead in the republican primary race for Wabash County sheriff. Land received 2,567 (72.21 percent) of the 3,605 votes cast in the race. Opponent Walter W. Woods received 24.66 percent of the

votes, totaling 889, with Tim Eubank pulling in 149 votes, or 4.13 percent. The magnitude of this win surprised Sheriff Land. “I thought it would be closer than what it was,” said Sheriff Land. “I’d like to thank everyone that supported me, and I’m asking for that support in November.” No candidate filed to run for Wabash County Sheriff in the democratic primary. Other notable races in the Republican

Primary included: -County Council District 1, where Claude Markstahler received 69.38 percent of the 565 total votes over Anthony DeLaughter; -County Council District 2, where Jeff Dawes took 52.61 percent of the 825 total votes over Philip L. Dale; -County Council District 3, where Matt Dillon took 60.65 percent of the 887 total votes over James Kaltenmark; -Lagro Township Trustee, where Andrew (continued on page 6)

Bunnell’s band, Small Town, will take the plaza stage on June 5 for the sixth of nine shows in the series, which continues each Thursday through the end of June. This was the first show on the plaza, as the May 1 concert was moved inside due to inclement weather. “It’s a beautiful day for it,” said Bunnell. The Harness Family Band, composed of local musicians, will perform on the plaza this Thursday. All shows in the Plaza Music Series are free. (photo by Eric Stearley)

On April 30, Wabash County World War II veteran Raymond Reed went on the Honor Flight to Washington D.C. with many other veterans from the area. His son, Stan, who was his traveling partner for the day, also joined Raymond. Raymond was in a recognizance squadron as security in a tank. “I went in during 1943 and I got home as 1945 ended,” Raymond told The Paper. Raymond traveled clear across Europe during World War II. “We were in Southern France when our division was called up to the North to the Battle of the Bugle,” said Raymond. “After that was over, we started moving towards Germany. By that time, they were getting pretty weak, and we moved pretty fast. We started for Berlin, with a few stops on the way. We pulled off the road once, and about a half a mile away, we saw Germans, so we opened up with (continued on page 2)

got him started on the application for the Honor Flight. “You have to apply to get on a waiting list,” said Raymond’s wife Jackie. During Raymond’s Honor Flight experience, he left Fort

Wayne International Airport, flying directly to Washington D.C. to spend the day at the World War II Memorial, stopping at other memorials on the way. Raymond’s favorite experience was the

arrival home at the Fort Wayne International Airport, where there were dancers depicting an old USO show

and families awaiting the return of their beloved veterans. “They had ladies and gentlemen dancing like the old pro-

grams. The highlight of the whole trip was seeing rows of people welcoming us home,” said Raymond. All the Honor

Opportunity to request soybean referendum available Beginning May 5 and running through May 30, soybean producers are being given an opportunity

to decide if they want to be offered a referendum on the Soybean Check-off program. Producers who mar-

White’s Compass Rose Academy Graduates Record Class Compass Rose Academy, a private program for troubled teen girls at White’s Residential & Family Services, will graduate five girls from the program, the program’s largest class since their opening in 2012. Compass Rose Academy provides services to families and teens in crisis that have not yet entered the juvenile justice system. This residential treatment center operates a 9 to 12-month private program for 14- to 17-year old junior high and high school girls from across the country. “I could not be more proud of our current group of graduates,” said Mike Haarer, Director of Compass Rose Academy. “This is our largest group of graduates to date and they have worked so hard for this day for a long time.” Hannah Hunsaker, one of the Compass Rose graduates, was honored April 24, by the Wabash Chamber of Commerce at an Honor’s Student Lunch. Hunsaker, originally from California, graduated at the top of her class while attending Compass Rose. “Although it’s been a struggle, I am glad and proud I have persevered through and that I’m graduating with an honors diploma,” Hannah stated. “I’m happy to be attending Biola University at California with a major in human biology.” Success stories like Hannah’s are a testament to the nurturing and therapeutic environment at Compass Rose Academy, which allows for emotional healing and personal growth. “Hannah has been a top-notch student since day one, both academically and in terms of other personal strengths and accomplishments,”

said Haarer. “It is rewarding for Compass Rose to be able to offer the support necessary for students like Hannah to not only graduate, but to graduate with honors.” Throughout the next few weeks, family and friends will be invited to attend separate graduation ceremonies for the students.

keted soybeans between Jan. 1, 2012 and Dec.31, 2013 and paid an assessment are eligible to participate in the request for referendum. Producers who would like to be offered a referendum on the soybean program should contact their local FSA office for additional information or to complete a request form. Completed forms must be returned to the FSA office by the May 30 deadline. In addition to the completed form, producers must submit proof that an assessment was paid in either 2012 or 2013. In most cases copies of settlement sheets should include the required proof of assessment being paid.

The current Soybean Check-off Program became effective on July 9, 1991 and the first assessments began Sept. 1, 1991. The Soybean Check-off Program is administered by the United Soybean Board, which has 70 members representing 30 states. Funds from the current check-off program are used to advance soybean marketing, promote technology and develop new uses for soybeans. Only producers who are in favor of a referendum on the Soybean Check-off program should participate. Persons who do not desire a referendum on the Soybean Check-off Program would not participate in the

request for referendum. At least 10 percent of the eligible producers must request a referendum before USDA will move forward with a referendum vote. Results of the current request for referendum will probably be announced in either July or August of 2014. Soybean producers in Wabash County Indiana who are interested in having a referendum on the Soybean Check-off Program can complete forms by visiting the FSA office located at 599 Bryan Ave. Wabash, or visit MSv1.0/Soybeaninfor mationontheSoybean RequestforReferendu m, which you can access with your smart phone by scan-

ning the code provided. Completed LS-51-1 forms and supporting documentation must be returned to the Wabash County FSA office by fax or in person by close of business May 30, 2014. The Wabash County FSA fax number is

Wabash River Defenders (WRD) have partnered with the Knights of Columbus Squires to further their mission of wildlife preservation along the Wabash River. On the morning of April 26 the Squires, Kevin Hipskind, and John Foor, along with Wabash River Defender and fourth degree Knight of Columbus, Sir Keith Poole, installed multiple styles of birdhouses along the Wabash River

Walk. The installation of birdhouses included: two wren, two blue bird, two chickadee, two nuthatch, two tufted titmouse, two screech owl, two Kestrel, two flicker, and two robin shelves. The bird houses were built by students at Heartland Career Center with materials that were purchased with funds awarded to the WRD from Wabash County REMC’s Operation Round-Up Grant. “The Defenders are humbled by the support that we continue to receive from organizations like the Knights of Columbus, Jen Rankin of Solid Waste Management, Todd Titus of the Wabash City Parks Department and so many others,” said Keith Poole, a key leader serving among the Wabash River Defenders. “Preserving the wildlife that live along the banks of the Wabash River are just as vital as the wildlife living in the river. Our work doesn’t end after the day we clean out the banks. It is ongoing and we are determined to advance our efforts and defending our waterways,” Poole continued. The WRD have changed their logo to

which will revolve around celebrating the success of the past three river cleanup campaigns and the hundreds of volunteers who dedicated their time and resources to protecting our natural waterway.

gained the internal strength of character necessary to meet those challenges successfully,” said Haarer. Compass Rose Academy continues to expand its program with new staff and hopes to increase student enrollment to 40 students over the next four years.

Clark Gallery welcomes photographer John Bower by Eric Stearley On Tuesday, May 6, the Honeywell Center’s Clark Gallery held an artist reception for John Bower, whose photographs of Indiana are on display until June 15. In what is a rare treat for reception attendees, Bower made a presentation, during which he gave a quick overview of his seven published books, talked about his photographic inspiration, and discussed his extensive travels to every corner of the state. A former shop teacher, carpenter, and “healthy house” expert, Bower picked up photography more than a decade ago and developed a fascination with the deteriorating remnants of an earlier time. “Despite living in a society that values the newest, costliest, and flashiest, I’m drawn to the forgotten, ignored, and cast aside,” Bower wrote in his artist statement. “To me, these once vital structures possess a residual energy, left behind by the workers who built them and the people who used them. Capturing this faint, persistent essence of humanity is what fascinates and inspires me.” To capture this essence, Bower has traveled seemingly every inch of the state, visiting more than 3,000 cities and towns to find the gems that will live on in his prints and photography books. Bower’s medium of choice is

matter of any of the books, which included a variety of abandoned homes, barns and vehicles. Bower caught a huge break when then First Lady of Indiana Judy O’Bannon agreed to write a forward for the book. Over the past decade, Bower has published six more books, each with a different theme. Guardians of the Soul focused on cemetery statues, while 2nd Stories focused on stairways and the upper levels of homes. After the Harvest was dedicated to historic grain elevators and feed mills, while Silent Workplace focused on abandoned storefronts and places of business. Journey’s End focused on the transportation of yesteryear, and his most recent book, The Common Good, is a look at public buildings “built with taxes, tithes, and tuition.” Currently, Bower is nearing the end of a 3year project on abandoned barns, the subject of his next book. There are currently 70 prints on display at

Precious Gems & Metals to close downtown retail store

STAN WALTER STANDS IN FRONT of Precious Gems & Metals, located on Canal Street. The retail jewelry store will close for good on May 22. The store is holding a going-out-of-business sale until then. (photo by Eric Stearley)

by Eric Stearley Precious Gems & Metals, a retail shop located at 3 East Canal Street, will close its doors for good on May 22. Precious Gems & Metals has been in the business of buying and selling quality jewelry, precious metals since 1979. The company has built its business on going into communities for

short periods of time and buying up vintage and estate jewelry at competitive prices. Word spread over the years and past customers brought more jewelry, as well as friends and family interested in selling pieces. As much as 90 percent of the items purchased are melted down and sold as gold and silver bullion. A few years ago, owner Stan Walter opened a retail

store in downtown Wabash to sell high quality items that he didn’t want to scrap. With the recent drop in the prices of gold and silver, jewelry owners are less willing to sell their items. With fewer items available for Walter to purchase, there has been a notable decrease in the supply of qualities items to sell in the downtown store. “This is my last

retail operation,” said Walter, who has owned several businesses in Wabash throughout the years. “I just want to thank the Wabash community for their support over the years. I’ve been able to make a good living and raise a family through my businesses, so I’m just very thankful.” While the retail shop will soon close, the business will continue. Walter and his associates will continue to buy and sell in other markets through private purchases. Walter said he will also be open to make appointments with interested parties. Currently, Precious Gems & Metals is holding a total liquidation going-out-ofbusiness sale, with items marked as low as 70 percent off retail value. “We’re just going to start pushing stuff out of here these last few days,” said Walter. “After May 22, everything is going to be

out of here. It’s either going to get sold or melted down.” The newly renovat-

ed building on Canal Street will also be for sale. Walter said he has had inquiries

from interested parties, but the building is still available.

W.C. Mills to hold open house The news that W.C. Mills Elementary would be closing its doors and consolidating with O.J. Neighbours and Wabash Middle School came earlier this school year, and the news was difficult for many students and community members, including the school’s former principal and current Wabash mayor, R o b e r t Vanlandingham. “I was there for a long time. When they closed Carpenter School, I went to Mills

and taught fifth grade for a year and then became principal,” Mayor Vanlandingham told The Paper. “To me, it’s a great neighborhood. It just seemed like that corner lot, with all the kids coming to school; a lot of focus came on that lot. We had a great staff. I’ll never forget my 50th birthday. I used to have an IU flag hanging and I would mess with kids and make them salute the IU flag. I came to work on my 50th birthday, and the teachers

had a hoop with black and gold paper I had to run through. “I get through it and all the teachers are dressed in black and gold. The hallways were decorated in black and gold, and then students were all dressed in black and gold. Every half hour, there were five kindergarten girls, dressed in Purdue cheerleading outfits and they would stand outside my office and do a Purdue cheer. Everyone got along so great. We had a staff

that was so creative. We got a lot of work done, but we did it in a fun manner,” Mayor Vanlandingham continued. M a y o r Vanlandingham reminisced about events like his birthday, the Mills 500, which they held during their old race day, and renovations to keep the building going. “The kids took a lot of pride in that building,” said Mayor Va n l a n d i n g h a m . “Everyone was there for one reason, and that was the kids. There are a lot of fond memories in that building. “There’s a part of me that goes when that building goes, but I have a lot of confidence in our board and school officials. They wouldn’t have done this without a lot of thought. I was at Mills a couple weeks ago doing an interview with fourth graders. When we got done, I asked them a question. I asked, ‘How do you feel about closing your building?’ One of them teared up and said she was unhappy. I remember saying, ‘You know, this used to be my school, and really and truly, it will always be my school.’ I told them that one day the school may not be there, but it will always be their school,” continued Mayor Vanlandingham. Located in the main lobby is a painting of the Challenger, which Mayor Vanlandingham has requested be saved. “I remember making a big thing about it. We had all the kids sitting

W.C. MILLS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL is located on the corner of Vernon Street and Hale Drive. The building has housed elementary through high school students during its time as a school. “I just hope its continues to be useful,” Mayor Vanlandingham told The Paper. (photo by Emily Armentrout0 around the TV sets, watching the launch, and when that exploded it was the dummy principal who had to stand up and talk about things I wasn’t prepared to talk about. I have asked Mr. Callahan to save that so that other people can enjoy it in the future.” Ron Woodward, Wabash County Historian, provided The Paper, with a glimpse of W.C. Mills’ history. The school was dedicated back in 1963 in honor of south-sider, W. Cecil Mills, who was the head, for many years, of Community

Service for young people. It was originally Linlawn High School, after the school was relocated to the location on Vernon St from Pike Street in 1953. This was due to a consolidation of Chippewa High School and Linlawn High School. It then became Noble Township High School. In 1960, fire destroyed the LaFontaine High School and its students were transferred into Noble Township High School. In 1962, Noble Township High School closed and the students were moved to Southwood High

School. Wabash City Schools purchased the school soon after from the Metropolitan School District of Wabash County. The building underwent remodeling in 1962, followed by its dedication in 1963. W.C. Mills Elementary will be hosting an open house for any former students and community members who would like to visit the building one last time before its closing. The open house will be held on Sunday, May 18 from 2-4 p.m. and is open to the public.

And when the guide opens the water gate and water power begins turning the machinery you can see the excitement in their faces!” Last year the mill attracted visitors from nineteen states and four foreign countries.

North Miami FFA wins national championship

MeLisa D Styles

Ten members of the North Miami Chapter traveled to Oklahoma recently to compete in the 63rd National Land Judging Contest held annually in the Oklahoma City Area. The team won the right to compete in this event by placing in the top five at the state contest last fall. They spent three days in Oklahoma prior to the contest to get acquainted with the properties of the soils found in that area. The very old, weathered bedrock prairie soils of central Oklahoma are quite different than the soils in northern Indiana that formed under forest conditions after being deposited by glacier activity only a few thousand years ago. After a lot of study and practice, the contest day found the students anxious to test their skills against approximately five hundred students from 38 states from Hawaii to Florida and from North Dakota to Texas. The teams departed the headquarters hotel Thursday morning in a long caravan of cars, trucks, vans and busses traveling to the contest site on a large cattle ranch near Mustang, Okla. The students judged four diverse soil pits, identifying their physical features, and then made management recommendations for the use of the soils for agricultural production and for home building sites. That evening, they traveled to the ball-

RICHARD TUCKER WAVES TO THE CROWD after accepting his “Volunteer of the Year” award during the Honeywell Center’s Volunteer Dinner April 29. (photo by Eric Stearley)

Honeywell Foundation thanks volunteers by Eric Stearley More than one hundred volunteers filled Legacy Hall on the evening of April 29 as the Honeywell Foundation thanked its volunteers with dinner, entertainment, and an awards ceremony. The evening began as volunteers enjoyed a buffet of chicken calabash, baked steak, broccoli salad, Brussels sprouts with bacon, glazed carrots, whipped red skin potatoes with gravy,

and a variety of desserts. As dinner came to an end, the stage came to life with an a cappella quartet composed of Tony Millspaugh, Logan Horn, Lamar Horn, and Garry Texeira. The quartet mixed music with comedy as each member’s stage persona battled with the others for personal attention and order within the group. After a few words from Volunteer Manager Michelle Campbell, the awards ceremony began. The

most anticipated of the many awards was “Volunteer of the Year.” “In the past, the volunteer of the year was based solely on the number of hours they worked,” said Campbell. “I wanted to change things up a little bit this year, and I wanted to value the volunteers that may not spend as much time here, but still do a lot for the Honeywell Center.” Richard Tucker was named “Volunteer of the (continued on page 11)

Honeywell Foundation thanks volunteers... continued from page 10 Year,” an announcement that garnered much applause, with one attendee shouting, “Go Richard!” as Tucker made his way to the front. “This year, the volunteer of the year has gone above and beyond on numerous occasions,” Campbell said before announcing Tucker as the winner. “They have demonstrated their true passion for the H o n e y w e l l Foundation, whether they are being an ambassador for local schools, a tour guide for the Honeywell Center, working the many kids’ events, or helping with Christmas decorating. He is willing to jump right in and go without complaints to help where needed.” In addition to “Volunteer of the Year,” a series of awards were given

based on nominations by the volunteers. “Most Sociable” went to Sharon Shuey. Ed Rice won “Most Helpful.” Mona Kilmer was named “Go-To Volunteer.” “ F r i e n d l i e s t Volunteer” went to Steve Brubaker, and “The People’s Choice Award” went to Darlene Myers. A third group of awards were given based on the number of hours spent volunteering. Jean Gilbert was honored for reaching 1,000 hours as a Honeywell Center volunteer. Pat Brubaker and John Gilpin were honored for reaching the 500hour mark. Seven individuals were honored for volunteering more than 200 hours in 2013 including: Weldon Coldren, Mary Donna Collins, Diane Eshelman, Vicki

Jackson, Darlene Myers, Sally Robbins, and Michael Weibel.

He also gave a special thanks to the volunteers for putting in so many extra hours to make the Ford Theater’s 20th anniversary celebration a success. “Am I the only one that’s tired this month? Have we had enough shows right now? It’s hard to believe the Ford

Theater has been here for 20 years now,” said Minnich. “We really couldn’t do what we

do without your help and support. We thank you and we appreciate what you

do throughout the year. Thank you so much for that.”

Local poet publishes Mother’s Day poem by Emily Armentrout Marie Fouts, a longtime Wabash resident, recently had her poetry published in Parable. Fouts has been writing poetry since she was a child. “Back when I was young, we didn’t have a lot of money to buy games and toys, so we wrote poetry,” Fouts told The Paper. “Dad would read them and he chose the best one and they would get a lollipop.” Fouts draws inspiration from almost anywhere. Her favorite poem, “Hometown,” she wrote about Wabash after strolling

through Paradise Springs. She also published a poem that that was inspired by an apron her daughter gave her and the memories it brought back about her own mother’s aprons. The Mother’s Day poem that Fouts is sharing with the community was inspired by her work at the former Hallmark Store and the Mother’s Day cards her children used to create for her when they were young. Though she has lost count of how many poems she has written since her c h i l d h o o d , “Hometown” will always be her favorite.

Mother’s Day Cards by Marie B. Fouts As I go about my work in a card shop, I look at the racks of Mother’s Day cards. Beautiful cards, verses and all dedicated to Mother, some written in calligraphy, others in script or in bold print; there are so many choices, one could find any type of card for any mother. As I walk along the racks, my mind wanders back to the cards I received from my son and daughter. I think the first ones I received might have bee made in Sunday school. The teachers had my children copy works on a card they made, often on construction paper with their precious little handprints drawn on the paper and a poem about small handprints on the wall, wishing me a Happy Mother’s Day—so eagerly presented to me as soon as I arrived to pick them up at the classroom. Later, they made them in school where the teachers would have them create their own verses. The cards usually told me they loved me and to have a happy Mother’s Day. My son’s were always very short, since he did not like to write, but my daughter’s were long and rhyming, often following the same pattern as her brother’s. One such Mother’s Day card from her read:

MARIE FOUTS is pictured with the published copy of her poem, Mother’s Day. (photo by Emily Armentrout) To a mom I dearly love, she was brought to me from above. I love her like I do no other, a whole lot more than my brother! I smiled as I read the poem. The sentiment was so sweet. I was so glad to be loved more than her brother, but he wasn’t! My son’s poem read: “A mother is caring and not made for sharing!” My son had decorated his card with many hearts and flowers, since he loved to draw. I saved most of these cards and look at them from time to time. My son is no longer with us, but my daughter, now with a family of her own, thoughtfully chooses sentiments properly written on bond paper from the accomplished poet, usually from the card shop where I work. But I still cherish the broadly traced script, painstakingly written with the handprints on construction paper. These are the cards I treasure the most. As I walk down the rows of Mother’s Day cards, I know none can compare. Those handmade, handwritten cards let you know you are truly loved. They are written by the children who live with you day in and day out. They know your shortcomings and you love and take time to make you a special Mother’s Day card, and in them, you find your affirmation as a mother.

This was the very day I heard a knock on my door. An almost frozen man had hit a snowdrift and could go no farther. He wanted to use my phone to call for help. I turned him away. I was home

alone, out in the country and was very frightened to let him in. The story goes on, but I can’t get this man out of my mind. Thankfully, my neighbor pulled him out with a tractor. I can only say a thousand times, I am so sorry.

weather was near perfect. There were some really good teams playing here today, and their scores and individual scores reflected it,” said Coach Terrell. “I think the guys played very well today. They all had a couple holes that they didn’t score well on, but they fought through it. We had two guys medal today (top 8) Braydon

Protect Your Online Reputation by Shannon Niedzwicki

Niedzwicki works as the director of Career Services at Ivy Tech Community College Kokomo Region.

Living far away from my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, I use social media daily to stay current with everything going on back there; it’s a great way to keep up with my personal world of family and friends. But social media— Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, etc., etc., etc.—also is becoming more and more a tool of the professional world, so caution is in order. Employers are increasingly checking the social media sites of potential

employees or interns and what they find there could be the difference between getting the job or not. It is important to use social media in your day-to-day life but it is also important to keep it clean. I always tell students I counsel or teach at Ivy Tech to start by “Googling” their names. It’s very important to see what others see. This way you will know what your social identity is online, and what you need to clean up. You may have pictures that you thought you deleted or photos you’re tagged in on other people’s sites. Just know that employers will “Google” you too and you’ll want to make sure everything they

see is positive and tells the story you want them to get. Even if your settings are set to private, tech-savvy employers can work around that or at least wonder why you have such strong privacy settings. The best thing you can do is start cleaning up your online identity. The best way to keep your profiles clean is to put some serious thought into everything you post—before you post—and then to monitor what you

post. Never post anything that could be offensive or anything that discriminates against any group, person or company. No matter what you intended, consider whether people could get the wrong impression—and what that can later mean to you. Try to post things that you like, things you value and have a passion for so those following you, or searching for you, can get a better understanding of who you are as a person and how you

want to be known. And limit the personal information you share on social media; keep your private life private if you don’t want everyone in the world to know. The fact is this: even if that spring break trip or your college roommate’s bachelorette party were a blast, a potential employer may not think so; you should delete all those incriminating or offensive photos you thought were cute or funny at the

time. Even if you are very qualified, even if you have the best résumé and interview, your social media profile could determine whether they want you to be part of their company or not. Social media is a huge tool for connecting with potential employers and finding great jobs out there. But it is something that can really help you or really hurt you. It is up to you to decide what you want your social identity to be. For

decades, the best advice has been “your biggest asset is your reputation.” In the age of social media, this is truer than ever.

Stirring it up with Angie Baer

If I were to make a list of everything I love about springtime, having an asparagus patch just a few feet from our back door would be right at the top of that list. I love the fact that I can pick fresh asparagus for that evening’s dinner. A few years ago, my Husband and I went to one of our favorite restaurants in downtown Ft. Wayne. I ordered shrimp scampi pasta, which turned out to be absolutely fantastic. I requested the recipe from the chef and was quickly turned down. A few days later, I decided to try and create my own version of shrimp scampi pasta. I started with the basics, adding a little of this and a pinch of that and soon I had a winner! The asparagus tips paired with the fresh mint and basil is simply delicious. I often prepare this dish during my cooking classes and it quickly becomes a favorite among my students. Shrimp Scampi Pasta with Asparagus tips 1 lemon 1 teaspoon salt 1pound asparagus (using tips only) Extra virgin olive oil 3 garlic cloves 1/4 cup packed fresh mint 1/4 packed fresh basil leaves 12 oz. shelled and deveined large shrimp (rinse well) 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper 1/2 cup chopped red onion 1 box (13.25 oz) whole-grain- blend spaghetti

Manchester Marketplace expands, offering deli items By Shaun Tilghman When Manchester Marketplace (137 E. Main St.) opened for business in December 2012, owner Gary Long’s goal was to provide the local community with good products at good prices. Now, just a year and a half later, he has taken that goal one step further by expanding the bulk food & discount grocery store to include a fresh deli section. “We opened M a n c h e s t e r Marketplace on Dec. 15, 2012, and on Feb. 27, 2014, we expanded and added the deli,” said Long. “It’s something we’ve been trying to do for a while now and we’ve been looking forward to offering this to the people of North Manchester and sur-

rounding communities. It’s going really well and I’m excited about the products – we’ve gotten really good compliments so far.” Basically, they’re just striving to continue in their effort to offer good products at good prices, according to Long. “We even have several products in our deli that are glutenfree and have no MSG,” he added. “Not all of our products are like that, but several of them are,” Long continued. “Right now, we have two hams that are, as well as three of our turkeys, including the Cajun, which also has no nitrites and is raised with no antibiotics or growth hormones. So, these are really good products

and they’re really helping the deli take off. “In terms of the cheeses, there are some different labels now than what we carried before, but they’re still quality cheeses at fair prices. What we’ve done is, we’ve gone with a different distributor, and even though the labels might be different, a lot of the cheeses are still pretty much the same as we had been offering. Also, we were only able to sell the chunks or horns of cheese before, but now we’re able to sell it in slices as well.” Long went on to explain that, while the availability of fresh, sliced meats and cheeses has drawn customers to the deli, several other products have been

OWNER GARY LONG stands in the new deli section of Manchester Marketplace, located at 137 E. Main Street. The bulk food & discount grocery store’s recent expansion to offer fresh, sliced meats and cheeses has been a big hit. (photo by Shaun Tilghman)

ServSafe offers food-safety training

ServSafe has always set the standard in food safety training and certification. You can be confident knowing the ServSafe program was created by leaders in the food service industry. The topics you will learn were determined by those who deal with the same food safety issues you face every day. From the basics of hand-washing, to more complex topics such as food borne pathogens, this class

will provide you with the building blocks to keep food safe throughout your operation. 2014 class dates: Summer Class 2— June 16, 6-8 p.m. June 17, 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Deadline for enrollment is June 1. Fall Class 3—Sept. 22, 6-8 p.m. September 23, 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Deadline for enrollment is Sept. 8 Winter Class 4— Dec. 8, 6-8 p.m.

Dec. 9, 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Deadline for enrollment is Nov. 18. The classes are located at the Wabash County Court House, second floor, One West Hill Street, Wabash, IN 46992. Prepayment is required.

the biggest hits. “The kicker of the whole thing would probably be our locally made salads,” he said, “which include chicken salad, ham salad, macaroni salad, potato salad, etc. We’ve been going through a lot of those items because they are just so good. “We plan to take orders for large parties, such as graduation parties, family get-togethers, etc. However, our hope is that people will con-

tact us a week or more in advance to place orders so that we can be sure to have enough of those products available. Typically, we try to order those products in the quantities that we think we’ll need for the week, which keeps our overhead low while helping to ensure that they are as fresh as possible; but, that also means we don’t have a lot of those products in the back.” When asked why

they waited two months to push their new addition, Long was quick to admit that an adjustment period was necessary. “To be honest, when we first started offering the deli items, it was going so well that we got a little overwhelmed,” he explained. “But, now we’ve had time to take a deep breath and get used to things, so we’re ready to spread the word. We really hope to make people aware of the deli and

grams and cash flow procedures. In 2012, Airgood published a comprehensive book on the history of Servia, which is one of the best sellers in the Center for History Gift Shop. Mary Chrastil, NMHS President, said: “Gladys would probably prefer to work on more historical research, but we keep asking her to help in other ways, and she always says, ‘Yes.’ We were stretched very thin last year, and we could not have made it without her.” Special recognition was also given to Nancy Reed for Lifetime Volunteer Service to the Historical Society. Nancy was a founding member of the Historical Society, and served as president for several terms. She was instrumental in purchasing, moving and renovating the Thomas Marshall House. From 2007-2010 she served as volunteer Director of the Center for History, and became one of its first paid staff starting in

2011. As director, Nancy was responsible for exhibits, window displays, school programs, the docent program, tour groups, and building maintenance and repairs. She retired in August 2013 with over 4,100 hours of volunteer service recorded, and she is continuing to help by being a docent. Chrastil noted Reed’s keen interest in genealogy research, which she also continues. Volunteers who have accumulated 100 hours of service received a polo shirt with the North Manchester Center for History logo. Those achieving this milestone this year were: James R.C. Adams, Charles Boebel, Judy Glasgow, Karen Hewitt and Becky Naragon. Chrastil, noted that people volunteer for many reasons, such as helping others, helping the community, and making North Manchester a great place to live. She noted that in 2013, volunteers gave 6,640 volunteer hours to the Center for History. Since the

NMHS started to keep records 2001, 43,736 volunteer hours have been recorded. Chrastil quoted figures from the Independent Sector, an organization that tracks volunteerism nationally. Using their guidelines for the value of volunteer hours, she stated that volunteers gave the equivalent of $143,153 to help the Historical Society in 2013. The total value of volunteer hours since 2001 is the equivalent of $942,944. Chrastil pointed out that if volunteer participation continues at the same level in 2014, the NMHS will reach the milestones of 50,000 volunteer hours with a value of over one million dollars next year. The North Manchester Historical Society does business as the North Manchester Center for History and the Historic Homes Preservation Group; they are all not-forprofits who depend entirely on volunteer support.

Wabash County Department of Child Services celebrates National Foster-Care Month

May marks a special time of the year to raise awareness about the needs of the more than 4,900 Indiana youth in non-relative foster homes. Caring foster parents open their homes to temporarily care for and embrace these children. They value the foster child’s family connections and provide a safe environment until the child can return home, be adopted or live independently. May is National Foster Care Month and the Wabash County Office of the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS) is taking time to thank these families who provide homes and love to the 110 abused or neglected children in Wabash County that need them. “People who become foster parents have chosen to be the difference for a foster child. Foster parents truly connect children to their community, impact young lives for-

ever and offer hope for a successful future,” said Margery Justice, director of the Wabash County office. “Please take some time this month to thank these wonderful families who provide homes and love to children who need them.” When a child cannot safely stay at home, relatives or other appropriate caretakers known to the children are contacted before seeking foster families to care for them. Searching for families, however, who will open their hearts and homes to children in need is always a priority. “There is a need for foster parents who reside in Wabash County,” said Mary Werner, regional foster care specialist supervisor. “May is the perfect time to raise awareness of the need for foster families and actively recruit.” To help with foster family recruitment efforts, DCS recently

completed a new 30second foster parent recruitment video entitled “Choose to be the Difference.” The video features current and former foster parents and children from around the state encouraging others to sign up to be foster parents. Each May, National Foster Care Month provides an opportunity for all Hoosiers to focus attention on the year-round needs of children and youth in foster care. Below are five easy ways community members can get involved: •Be a foster parent – Make a real and lasting difference by temporarily sharing your home, time, energy and love with a child in need. •Honor a foster parent – Attend or organize a foster care month event such as a dinner, coffee gathering, picnic, auction, etc. to raise awareness and express appreciation for foster parents.

Haynes awarded U.A.W. Scholarship On Wednesday, April 30, Southwood High School senior Dayton Haynes was one of 11 students in the states of Indiana and Ohio to be notified of being the recipient of the United Auto Workers top scholarship award. A luncheon on their behalf is to be held in Maumee, Ohio, on Wednesday, May 21. Designed to reward exceptional students, the $10,000 scholarship is sponsored by the U.A.W. union for students whose parents are members of the U.A.W. Haynes’ grade point average puts him in second place of the 2014 Southwood High School class. He is the son of Steve and Shirley Haynes, whose father is a skilled tradesman, a millwright, at the Kokomo Chrysler Castings Plant. Haynes has been

accepted at Indiana University/Purdue U n i v e r s i t y Indianapolis in their Computer Science division. Due to his high GPA and SAT scores, he was given a $36,000 scholarship by IUPUI and an $8,000 scholarship by the division of computer sciences. For three semesters he has attended IWU in Marion and taken a course each semester, plus taking online courses during summer months. Haynes pursued academics and music while at Southwood. Born with a congenital heart defect, transposition of the great vessels and hold in the heart he had open heart surgery at Riley Hospital at the age of 6 days, which limited him to the type of sports he could be involved in, but he does enjoy playing basketball and running for exercise. He

has played tuba in band from sixth grade up to and including his senior year. This year he played in the state honors band in Fort Wayne and the county honors band. Each Sunday morn-

ing and evening, Haynes plays his tuba for church in Marion at the Pilgrim Holiness Church. Part time, he can be seen working at the Wabash Carnegie Public Library.

Victory Christian Fellowship is hosting a Caribbean Dinner Fundraiser for Sarah Morbitzer, who will leave for Jamaica in June. Sarah will spend six months volunteering for Mustard Seed Communities in Kingston. Mustard Seed is a non-profit that cares for pregnant teenage girls in crisis, children who have been abandoned because of HIV/AIDS, and children and young adults with physical and mental disabilities. Children are provided with education, job training, healthcare, shelter, and housing and locals are empowered to become part of the solution to the unique challenges faced by these children. Sarah will assist local staff and other international volunteers with the day-to-day care of

the children who live in Mustard Seed’s 10 homes. The fundraiser will be held at Victory Christian Fellowship at 112 West Main Street in

North Manchester. The menu includes Jamaican jerk chicken and vegetables, pineapple fried rice, Caribbean salsa, strawberry salad and Key Lime pie.

This delicious meal can be enjoyed for a donation of any amount to Sarah’s trip. The fundraiser will begin at 12 p.m. on Sunday, May 18.

Use of food stamps rises in Wabash County By Emily Guerin and Tim Marema The use of food stamps in Wabash County increased during the recession, assisting families in stretching their food dollars, contributing to local spending and helping spark a national debate about the future of the federal nutrition program. The proportion of Wabash County residents receiving food stamps hit 11.8 percent in 2011, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Services. That’s an increase of 3.9 percentage points since 2007, the year the recession started. Across Indiana, 13.8 percent of residents in 2011 received support from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), as the food stamp program is officially known. Nationally, 14.8 percent of the population receives SNAP benefits. Places like Wabash County, which are located outside metropolitan areas, tend to have a higher percentage of the population receiving SNAP benefits.

That’s because incomes are generally lower in nonmetropolitan counties. The inflationadjusted median household income in Wabash County in 2011 was $43,533, compared to the Indiana median of $48,067 and the national median of $52,306 (in 2013 dollars). Food stamps may play a larger role in the local economy in rural areas and small towns, according to federal data. In Wabash County SNAP benefits are 1.1 percent of personal income. Nationally, the figure is 0.6 percent. In 2011, residents of Wabash County received a combined $5,880,780 in SNAP benefits. The USDA reports that each $5 in SNAP benefits generates $9.20 in spending. SNAP benefits start to circulate in the economy quickly. Participants spend nearly all their food stamps within one month of receipt, according to a study by the University of New Hampshire Carsey Institute. Grocers say they feel the impact of SNAP and other USDA nutrition programs like Women,

Infants and Children (WIC). “Without SNAP and WIC, we wouldn’t be able to make it,” wrote the owner of the Mill City Market in the small town of Mill City, Ore., in a survey of rural grocers conducted by the Oregon Food Bank and Kansas State University Rural Grocery Initiative. Owners know they have to stock the shelves to prepare for more business when SNAP benefits hit the streets, said David Procter with the Rural Grocery Initiative. It’s not just the mom-and-pop stores that see a bump from food stamp spending in small towns and rural areas. Walmart reported in a recent Securities and E x c h a n g e Commission filing that a decrease in SNAP benefits last year could affect the retail giant’s bottom line. Average SNAP benefits nationally fell about $30 a month per family in November after a temporary increase that was part of the 2009 economic stimulus package. More funding decreases

are on the way. This summer, Congress agreed to trim about $8 billion from SNAP over the next decade. Backers of the cuts said the program had expanded too much in recent years and was creating too much reliance on government assistance. SNAP expenditures increased 135 percent between 2007 and 2011. U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor (Va.-R) backed a measure that would have removed SNAP from the farm bill entirely. “While [SNAP] is an important part of our safety net, our overriding goal should be to help our citizens with the education and skills they need to get back on their feet so that they can provide for themselves and their families,” Rep. Cantor said during congressional debate. Food stamps have been part of the farm bill for the past 50 years. The legislation’s combination of farming and nutrition programs has helped ensure the bill receives broad backing from farm-country representatives and more urbanbased members who support anti-poverty

found protection from war and religious persecution before they came to America. 5) Korean – A divided war-torn country where many of our troops died and from which many refugees came to live in America. 6) VietnameseA divided war-torn country where many of our troops died and from which many refugees came to live in America. There are many Peace Poles on the campus of Timbercrest, proclaiming the words “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in many different languages.
