Proudly Serving Wabash County Since 1977

May 2, 2012

Meet your candidates for Wabash County Council by Danielle Swan Primary Election Day is May 8. Seven candidates are vying for the three available at-large seats on Wabash County Council. Before you cast your vote, take a moment to review their responses to the questions below. How would you define a successful term as a member of Wabash County Council? Ridenour: Finding a way to continue and improve services to our residents while looking for ways to cut costs; making decisions of spending county monies directly reflective of the county economy that funds it; continuing to have Wabash County as one of the overall lowest in per capita taxes in the state. Roser: A successful term for a Wabash County Council member is one in which the member has actively helped the entire Wabash County Council committee make sound financial decisions for the betterment of Wabash County and its’ citizens. Evans: The county council serves as the fiscal body of county government. A successful term would be four years of balancing the county budget with no reductions to departmental services. All the while affording our hard working county employees with minimally cost of living wage increases. Curless: One in which I felt I understood the problems and needs of our county, and was able to contribute to the solutions of those needs.

Ruppel: A successful term would be that over the next four years the council will keep a balance budget that keeps the county services where the residents expect them to be. Also, that we keep the tax rate as low as possible creating a good business climate to attract new businesses and residents. Gerding: If you came away and everybody was pleased, there is no such thing. You cannot please everybody all the time. You have to just study the whole thing, realize that people come in with preconceived ideas of what they want and then you have to sit down and figure it out from there and do what you think is best. That’s why they elected you. What would you identify as the biggest problem in Wabash that should be addressed by Wabash County Council? Ridenour: For me, without a question, would be to find out unanswered questions about our LOIT (Local Option Income Tax) income taxes. The state has given us misinformation from the start, and continues to do so to the point where our county has a reserve of around $3.5 million and we add to that yearly. That was not the way the legislators meant for the law to work, but the Department of Revenue and Department of Local Government Finance have completely screwed it up. I believe, with the recent problems at the state in finding over a half billion dollars and almost half of that being revenue shorted to county gov-

Daryl Evans ernment, that it is imperative we have a more clear understanding as well as they show some accountability to Wabash. Roser: The county roads are going to be a big challenge down the road if we don’t take care of them. The county used to chip and seal approximately 120 miles of county roads every year; now we are lucky if they have enough money to get 60 miles done per year. This means that the roads used to get chip and sealed every four or five years, now with the money that is available, it is going to be more like every 10 years. The money to do this comes from the gas tax collected by the state. It is my understanding that not enough money has been coming back to the county to cover the needed costs to maintain the current roads. No property tax or local option income tax is used for this. I think this is an issue, among many others that needs to be worked on. Evans: The biggest issues that the next council will have to deal with will be the overpopulation of our county jail and the ability to maintain county highways with state reduced funding. Curless: The two

Valerie Wilcox biggest problems facing the council would be roads and jail. The road issue is one I am very concerned with. For the past several years, the Highway Department has had to let miles of sealing go for lack of funds. After so long, this is going to cause a need for major road repairs. New funding sources are going to have to be found or expenses cut back. The council has asked the commissioners if allowing some roads go back

Randy Curless to gravel is an option. Wheel tax is an option, but the option that I and other council members are hoping for is that Indy lawmakers hear the problems of the counties on road and street repair, and they make changes at the state level to bring more money back to the counties. Ruppel: The duty of the council is to 1. Adopt a budget, 2. Set the tax rate, and 3.

Wabash receives $1.8 million economic development grant U.S. Commerce Secretary John Bryson recently announced a $1.8 million Economic Development Administration (EDA) grant to the city of Wabash to make critical infrastructure improvements needed to support the development of a new business park. The new business park is expected to generate approximately 540 new jobs and leverage $60 million in private investment, according to the grantee estimates. “This $1.8 million EDA investment in Wabash is an example of the Obama Administration’s commitment to supporting a 21st century infrastructure,” Bryson said. “The grant announced today will provide resources to Indiana that will help attract new businesses to Wabash and the surrounding region, thereby creating hundreds of jobs and modernizing a critical foundation of an economy built to last.” Economic Development Group of Wabash County, Inc., on behalf of the City of Wabash, began the application process for this grant nearly two years ago. The first submission was made in June 2010. “It is a very competitive and difficult process,” said Bill Konyha, president and CEO of EDG. “One step was to have the project identified as the number one priority on the regional Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) plan. This process includes economic development organizations and local elected officials from 10 counties.” The EDA investment funds the construction of roadway improvements and sewer, water, and drainage facilities to serve a city-owned 155-acre business park. The new business park will strengthen the region’s competitiveness by diversifying its economic base. Businesses locating in the park will be encouraged to implement green technology and energy-efficient systems. Konyha says that at this time EDG is working with a number of businesses that are considering expansion into the Wabash Business Complex.

Wabash County SWCD promotes Soil and Water Stewardship Week

As a part of the Wabash Community for 67 years, the Wabash County Soil & Water Conservation District wants to remind you that each of us has a connection to natural resources. The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) is celebrating the 57th year of Stewardship Week April 29-May 6.

The 2012 Stewardship Week is themed “Soil to Spoon.” Soil is the starting foundation of all of the food we eat. Susi Stephan acts as the executive director for the Wabash County SWCD and board supervisors are Christian Rosen, Rob Shellhamer, Kevin Cordes, Bobby Hettmansperger and Brian Ranck. The District was formed to

assist and educate our citizens, as well as provide leadership and administer programs to help people conserve, improve and sustain our natural resources and environment through wise use of our soil, water and natural resources. “Making the connection back to the soil, where our food gets its start is so

important,” says National Association of Conservation Districts President Gene Schmidt. “The next time you sit down to a meal, take a minute to think about where your food came from, and the farmers and ranchers who helped produce it,” As they work to produce food for the growing population, today’s farmers and

p r o g r a m . Stewardship Week is one of the largest national annual programs to promote conservation. NACD represents the nation’s 3,000 conservation districts, which were established to encourage resource conservation across the country. For more information about Stewardship Week

Jill’s Classic Cuts fills final vacant storefront in Roann by Danielle Swan

After operating Jill’s Classic Cuts for

21 years at 135 N. Chippewa St., Roann, Owner Jill Lefebvre has expanded the business to fill two adjacent storefronts. Lefebvre attended beauty college in Wabash and began in a Peru salon before opening her own salon in Roann. “As a kid, I came up here with my Dad a lot to the elevator, he was a farmer,” she said. “I knew people here, I would go to the restaurant. It just kind of seemed like it was right out my back door.” When the storefront became available, Lefebvre began renting the space. After years of renting, the owner of the property asked her to purchase that space as well as the one next door. “I really didn’t want to because I knew

they needed a lot of work, but my husband said he would get it done sometime and he did,” she said. Two years later, Lefebvre is now working out of essentially a brand new building. She and her husband stripped the walls down to the studs, removed the dividing wall between the two sides, rewired, installed a new furnace and made many cosmetic enhancements. Lefebvre’s husband completed as much work as possible on the vacant side while she continued to work, but she had to close for almost two weeks to incorporate the sides and remove the dividing wall. “The two weeks that I closed, actually it was 13 days, we had to take the wall down, finish wiring and drywalling and it had to be done. We were up here 16 or 18 hours per day. That was a hard two weeks,” she said. “K & M Floor Covering did the floor and they worked with

JILL LEFEBVRE, owner and cosmetologist at Jill’s Classic Cuts, recently completed an extensive remodeling project, which resulted in filling the final vacant storefront in Roann. (photo by Danielle Swan) me because they knew we were under a time frame. They did well.” Visitors to Jill’s Classic Cuts will be surprised when they open the door to such an inviting and comfortable environment. Lefebvre selected attractive warm tones such as orange and

tan with just a pop of a cool blue tone. Comfortable couches and attractive combinations of shelving add to the soothing aura of the space. “I really just got lucky with finding stuff that went along with it,” Lefebvre said. She purchased her station from

Kitchen’s Plus and shelving from an antique store. Lefebvre works three days per week and can be contacted for appointments at 765-833-2242. She offers most cosmetology services, with the exception of manicures and pedicures.

with friends, trying to save my soul. The guy didn’t even have the decency to wait until I finished my meal. I have a friend who I see five days a week who told me, “Be at home Monday at 3 p.m. for a surprise.” I found out she was going to send a preacher to my place to save my soul and that preacher found nobody home. Another day, the

sect known for knocking on doors tried to “save my soul.” If these church-goers want to help me, help me think of a snappy answer that will shut these people up. My nearest denomination is an 80-mile round trip. If you want to give me the $4 per gallon for gas money, I’ll go to church every week, but you’ll have to do the driving because

I’m old as the hills. My quarrel is with these people and not God. As he was dying, Henry David Thoreau was asked by his aunt if he had made peace with God. He responded that, “I didn’t know we had ever quarreled.” There is enough harassing nowadays without church people doing it too. James Veatch North Manchester

Approve special expenditures. If we do this and show businesses and individuals that we have our county in fiscal order, this will make Wabash County an attractive place to bring your business or family to live and work. Gerding: The jail is definitely a big prob-

lem. I really don’t know what the answer is but there is definitely a problem there. It’s overcrowded. I don’t have all the numbers, but I will have. If elected, that will be one thing that I’m really interested in. What do you feel qualifies you to serve on Wabash

VOTE MAY 8 Paid for by Wabash County Republicans, Flo Dahlstrom Treasurer


County Council? Ridenour: I have served four years prior (two years as chair) so I do have some experience in county government. Although I am not quite certain that in order to be qualified to serve you must be only a resident of the county. From my prior experience serving, I believe that anyone that can make common sense decisions when presented with factual requests would be a qualified candidate. In my prior experience on the council, I can say that I came to the meetings prepared for what was before us, and I believe I communicated with other elected officials and department heads in respect to their budgets and requests. Roser: I have a Purdue University Bachelor of Science degree in agricultural economics. I am a retired business coowner of Allen Feeds, Inc., which I owned with my brother for over 28 years. I actively keep the financial books and farm with my husband and his brothers and I am the financial secretary for our church. I was chairman of the Wabash County Steering Plan Committee and currently serve as chairman of the Wabash County 4-H Auction

Committee. I know how to work with numbers and work with people; both qualities that I believe are very important for this position. Evans: My background as a businessman and value added manufacturer of consumable products has given me a keen insight and perspective to real world issues that often come before the council. My educational background and daily decision making responsibilities serve me well on the council. Curless: Having one successful term behind me is helpful as I have the learning curve behind me. I understand the process, and I know and have worked with the department heads. I have experienced the workings of the state and their relationship to our county. I own and operate my own small business (farm) here in Wabash and understand the needs of business owners and employees. This also gives me knowledge in budgeting and fiscal responsibility. Ruppel: I believe my service on the county council and my experience as a state legislator will help me with making the tough budget decisions. Gerding: I’ve been in business for a long time and I bring the ideas of that with me to the table. I’m able to work with other people. I don’t have a “not invented here” mentality, I listen to everything and try to make the best decision I can from that. That’s not to say that we don’t have that right now but I don’t know because I haven’t really attended that many meetings so far. How do you feel about our local economic environment at this point and what do you think should be changed in that area? Ridenour: As the economic conditions have been bad all across our nation, I feel good about where Wabash County is in relationship to other comparable areas. I do believe we have made great strides in marketing our county to potential business with our Economic Development Group. Our county offers incentives to companies that would wish to locate here like all others. If there may be

any area that we need to strengthen county wide it would be perhaps to find ways to better educate our workforce and give them the technical skills that new business demands. Also, maybe there are more avenues we could explore to make more advantageous expansion of existing business as well as catering more towards small business. Roser: Most feel that we need more better paying jobs; I do believe that there has been great effort to try to get better paying jobs to come to Wabash County. I think the officials of Wabash County have used CEDIT funds to improve infrastructure, have offered tax abatements, and have done numerous other things to try to attract new businesses. With the business environment being so competitive, it has been a difficult task. So, we must continue to do what we have been doing and keep an open mind to other ideas that people might have to bring new businesses and industries to Wabash County. Evans: Our local economy is improving dramatically. Two years ago, we ranked 62nd in the state in unemployment at over 14 percent. We have improved to 12th in the state with unemployment down to 8.7 percent. While this is still unacceptable for all, it is refreshing to see our county trending lower. Curless: Wabash, like so many counties, has lost many manufacturing jobs. This is causing residents to leave our county in search of employment. I am concerned about our economic situation. As the U.S. economy recovers, I am certain ours will as well, however, once a company moves out, chances are they will never move back in. We as a council need to do all we can to support our Economic Development board in their attempts to bring new business in. We are very open to abatements and incentives so long as the new company fulfills their promise of new jobs and new investments into our community. We also need to help our existing businesses to stay and encour(continued on page 7)

age our residents to shop and buy locally to aid in their success. Residents of Wabash need to understand, what is best for our county would be several smaller businesses vs. one large one. We all have seen what can happen if one large company leaves an area. Ruppel: As a council, we need to work with EDG and all government officials to create a friendly business environment to attract new businesses, and we need to help local businesses to expand and remain in Wabash County. If we keep our county house in fiscal order, we will then begin to grow. Gerding: I think the atmosphere of the economy in this community is better than in a lot of communities. regardless of what a lot of people think. If they went out and saw what it was like in other places, I think they would see that we’re doing fairly well. According to our recently created County Comprehensive Plan, Wabash’s population is aging and decreasing. How do you feel County

Council could address that issue? Ridenour: I believe that working together with the municipal governments and EDG to do anything we can to make more available and convenient the education required for more technology based employment would be very important and this is already being done within regional economic development groups that we are participating in. All of the other assets are in place in our county, but until we have the trained workforce, the higher paying technical jobs and employers are going to be looking at markets that are ready. Roser: I think Wabash County has created an environment that is good for the aging population. We have Peabody, Timbercrest, Bickford Cottage and the new medical complex that is being built out by U. S. 24. I know when I was working at Allen Feeds, people from out of town who had come to visit friends and/or family at these retirement facilities would come into the feed store to do business. I know that they also

did business at other retail places and ate at one of our many good restaurants that we have in the county. Therefore, by having these retirement communities, there are outside people coming to Wabash County to visit and support our economy. As far as the decreasing population statistic, I think that goes back to the fact that we need to continue to try to get better paying jobs in the county and I do think that good people are trying to get this done and with continued hard work, we will have more job opportunities here for our young adults so they too, will want to stay here to work and to potentially raise a family. Evans: I believe that our county is well underway in its transition from a 20th Century Smokestack Economy to a 21st Century Knowledge Based Economy. As we move in this direction the “brain drain” or loss of our educated youth will reverse as they return home as new jobs are created. Curless: Further economic growth with more and better jobs.

people are graduating and finding there are no jobs here, so they leave in search of a career. The powers that council might have in this area would be the incentives to help bring in new business, or to encourage existing businesses to grow here. Maintaining infrastructure like our roads will be important to our growth. Encouraging more technology, like better high speed Internet services will encourage businesses to look at Wabash as well. Supporting our E c o n o m i c Development team and listening to their suggestions and concerns. Ruppel: The only thing the county council can do is keep our budget balanced and keep the taxes low while continuing to provide services and creating a good business environment. Gerding: I don’t know what they can do about it. I have no real opinion on it; I don’t know what you can do about it. Aging is a natural process, there’s no way to reverse it, I’m sure a lot of people would if they would! I think

you just have to go along with it. I don’t know that it’s really even a problem. The only way to bring more young people to the area would be more high-tech jobs. Instead of getting a company in here that had jobs for 400 I’d rather get four companies that had 100 jobs to offer so in case one of them does go upside down, you still have the rest of them to fall back on while you’re regrouping. These and additional questions were also presented to County Council candidates on April 23 at a debate hosted by the Chamber of Commerce.

Church Women United to meet May 4

Smith shares thoughts regarding May 8 primary Dear editor, In the Republican primary to be held May 8, voters are given a choice between two candidates for one of Indiana’s two seats in the United States Senate. Senator Richard Lugar is being challenged by fellow Republican Richard Mourdock. Senator Lugar has had a long history with Indiana voters. He served on the Indianapolis Public Schools’ Board of Trustees, as mayor of Indianapolis, and in the U.S. Senate. He continues to be a much respected representative of Hoosier values and common sense. Although he has been painted by his

opponent as “caving in” to Democrats, especially President Obama, the facts clearly show that not to be the case. He has voted against the health care bill more than 20 times, he opposed the Democrats’ budget plans and the stimulus bills as well as the cap and trade bill and the compulsory unionization bill-all truly conservative votes that reflect the values of Indiana citizens. Senator Lugar has built, for Indiana, a strong position in the senate. The organization of the congress both the House of Representatives and the Senate, promotes seniority as the way to have more respon-

sibility and “clout” among other members. Senator Lugar’s tenure provides Indiana with a strong, recognized and respected voice in matters of national concern both within the senate and throughout the nation. Due to his recognition within the senate, he also is able to quickly access the inner workings of the government to help Hoosiers who need answers and assistance. Senator Lugar has shown that he is the type of conservative that is needed not only by Indiana residents, but by the United States of America. The gridlock in congress is caused by those on

both extremes - so entrenched in their ideology that they cannot perform as the founding fathers envisioned. Congress was created in such a way as to invite discussion and authentic consideration of all points of view-ending many times in compromise solutions to national and international issues. Our country needs level headed conservatives such as Senator Lugar to carry out the dreams of our founding fathers. Please vote for Richard Lugar as the Republican candidate for United States Senate from Indiana. Jim Smith North Manchester

Detectives warn Hoosiers about scam St. Joe County men Detectives working from the Indiana State Police Peru Post would like to warn Hoosiers of a scam which occurred in NorthCentral Indiana that cost a Miami County woman $2,200. The scam started when the woman was called, unsolicited, and advised she had won a large sum of money and a new car. The caller indicated the lady was automatically entered into a drawing because she had previously used a debit or credit card. The caller indicated the woman had initially won the contest in November but the contest host was not able to con-

tact her. Due to victim not being contacted in November, the caller said the winning car had to be placed in storage. The caller said it would cost the victim $2,200 to get the car out of storage. The victim was advised to purchase a Green Dot MoneyPak card from an area retailer. She was told to place $2,200 on the card to pay the supposed storage fee. The victim then called the scammer with the card number, allowing the scammer access to the posted funds. The scammer told the victim that car and cash would be delivered to her resi-

Merle Alderfer, 84

dence. Of course no car or cash was delivered. The scammer made repeated calls to the victim with different excuses on why the alleged prizes were not delivered. The scammer even had someone call the victim pretending to be an Indiana police officer. The fake officer told the victim he had stopped the car she had supposedly won. The fake officer said the car contained a large sum of money and he was calling to verify that the car and cash were not part of an illegal drug operation. All indications are there was no car, cash, or contest. Also, police officers do not call citizens asking for

them to verify that they are not part of a criminal enterprise. The Indiana State Police is investigating this case, but recovering funds from scams like this have proven difficult in the past. A large percentage of these scams originate outside of the United States. Hoosiers are reminded: - To always be cautious of anyone contacting them unsolicited, either by phone or internet. Think Scam! - If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. - Have a good phone number for your bank and credit cards that you can call with questions.

arrested on drug charges in Miami County Recently, a traffic stop by Indiana State Trooper Luke Bowyer led to the arrests of two Saint Joseph County men on drug charges. Trooper Bowyer initiated a traffic stop on a 1997 Honda Civic, which had allegedly committed multiple unsafe lane movements while traveling on southbound U.S. 31 near Business 31 in Miami County. As Bowyer was speaking with the Honda’s driver, Mark Kuzmits, 23, North Liberty, he detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from the car. While Trooper Bowyer was determining Kuzmits’ level of intoxication, Trooper Daniel Prus and his narcotics detecting police dog, Zeke, arrived to assist.

Prus deployed Zeke to conduct a free air sniff around the Honda. Zeke gave a positive alert to the odor of illegal narcotics inside the car. During a subsequent search of the Civic, offices allegedly found a personal use amount of cocaine, prescription medication, a misdemeanor amount of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and open alcohol containers. Kuzmits was incarcerated in the Miami County Jail on a felony charge for possession of cocaine. He also faces two misdemeanor charges for possession of marijuana under 30 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was also issued a citation for having open

alcohol containers. The investigation revealed he was not too intoxicated to drive. Parker Brown, 20, South Bend, a passenger in the Honda, was also arrested. He was incarcerated in the Miami County Jail on two class D felony counts for possession of cocaine and possession of a schedule II narcotic. He also faces three misdemeanor charges for possession of marijuana under 30 grams, possession of drug paraphernalia, and illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor. He was also issued a citation for having open alcohol containers. Trooper Wendell Beachy also assisted with this investigation.

David Baker, 57 Peru Resident April 21, 1955 – April 21, 2012

David Allen Baker, Peru, passed away at 6:15 p.m. on his 57th birthday, April 21, at his residence surrounded by his family. He was born on April 21, 1955, in Peru, to Cloyne David and Marjorie Louise Nickels Baker. On Dec. 21, 1974, in Michigan, he was married to Vickie Lynn Miller; she preceded in death on July 11, 2001. He was employed at Bryan Steam, Peru, where he worked until his health declined last fall. He was a member of the Eagle’s Lodge, Peru. He was an avid hunter and fisherman.

Large heroin bust takes bite out of drug market Guns, cash, luxury vehicles and approximately $400,000 in heroin seized by authorities On the evening of April 10, officers with the Indiana State Police and the South Bend Police Department Special Operation Section worked in concert to remove more than 10 pounds of powder heroin from the streets. The multi-jurisdictional investigation that led officers to the estimated $400,000 in heroin stemmed from an investigation that started in Indianapolis during the summer of 2011. According to the Indiana State Police, the investigation was initiated after officers with the Indiana State Police Drug Enforcement Section (DES) purchased heroin from two Indianapolis men. The buy led investigators north to a possible

heroin supplier and drug trafficking ring in South Bend that included individuals from outside Indiana. The sting operation was set into motion on April 10 after suspected ring leader Curtis Lee III, 37, South Bend, purportedly received a delivery of heroin from Johanney Quintana, 44, Stickney, Ill. According to law enforcement, the transaction between Lee and Quintana occurred in the parking lot of the Speedway gas station located at Brick Road and the U.S. 31 Bypass in South Bend. According to the State Police, the eightmonth investigation continued when Emergency Response Teams (ERT) from the state police and South Bend Police Department simultaneously raided five locations in northern St. Joseph County. During the execution of the search warrants, cash in the amount of $434,550 was discov-

ered at residences located at 17470 Darden Rd., 3334 Woodmont Dr., 1914 Rockne Dr., South Bend, and in a storage unit in Granger. One of the residences searched was that of Jerome Boyd, 38, an alleged coconspirator of Lee. Also seized during the search warrants were two handguns, several luxury vehicles and a semi tractor and trailer. All three men were charged in Marion County with conspiracy to distribute heroin, a Class A Felony. All three were originally incarcerated in St. Joseph County and were later transported to the Marion County Jail for future proceedings. Both a search and arrest warrant were served at an Indianapolis address early on the morning of April 13. Arrested without incident was Darnell Beverly, 33, at 2811 E. 28th St., Indianapolis. As set forth in the probable

cause affidavit, Beverly was allegedly distributing heroin from an automotive repair shop located at 1902 E. 46th St., Indianapolis, and working in conjunction with Lee. The warrants were served by members of the Indiana State Police, with assistance from Drug Enforcement Administration agents and members of the I n d i a n a p o l i s Metropolitan Police Department. Beverly is being held at the Marion County Jail on charges of dealing heroin, a Class A Felony. Nash Garrett, 29, another co-conspirator, was arrested on April 13, for allegedly purchasing heroin from Beverly to distribute in Bloomington. “We have received anecdotal information from law enforcement officers in Marion County that heroin appears to be making a resurgence on the streets,” said Prosecutor Terry Curry. “These arrests

and charges illustrate the critical importance of cooperation among law enforcement agencies in investigating and prosecuting these cases. I commend the Indiana State Police, as well as the many other agencies involved in putting together such a thorough and comprehensive investigation.” Agencies participating in the investigation include the Indiana State Police, the South Bend Police Department Special Operations Section, the I n d i a n a p o l i s Metropolitan Police Department, and the Drug Enforcement Administration. The defendants will be prosecuted in Marion County. Lee, Quintana and Boyd had initial hearings on April 14. Darnell Beverly appeared for his initial hearing on April 16. The cases all have been assigned to Criminal Court 20. One alleged co-conspirator, Dlon Edwards, remains at

Brookston man arrested for boating while intoxicated at Mississinewa Reservoir I n d i a n a Conservation Officers arrested Ralph E. Miller II of Brookston Indiana for operating a motorboat while intoxicated. On April 29, Officer Jerry Hoerdt was on boat patrol on Mississinewa Reservoir when he encountered Miller, 48, operating his motorboat with two other adult passengers. Hoerdt observed Miller fishing and was preparing to check his license when Miller pulled his boat towards Hoerdt’s. Miller was

found to have consumed numerous beers that afternoon and he failed several field sobriety tests for intoxication and impairment. Hoerdt conducted a search of Miller when he got back to the boat ramp and found him to be in possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia as well. Miller admitted to smoking marijuana while operating his motorboat and consuming alcoholic beverages. Miller was taken to the Wabash County Hospital ER and a blood draw was

William McKenzie Former Wabash resident Feb. 28, 1962 – April 17, 2012 William Junior McKenzie passed away April 17 at 8 p.m. He was born Feb. 28, 1962 in Wabash to William Troy McKenzie, Lagro, and Molly (Jones) Penix, Wabash. He married Gina Janow on Jan. 15, 2010. Mr. McKenzie was employed at Pepsi cola Company in Phoenix, Ariz.

conducted and sent to the Indiana State Department of Toxicology for examination. The results of the blood examination could result in additional charges. Miller was jailed in the Wabash County Jail for operating a motor boat while intoxicated, possession of marijuana, and possession of

drug paraphernalia. Indiana Conservation Officers routinely patrol our state waterways looking for intoxicated boaters who are a danger to both themselves and the boating public. Hoerdt stated in a case such as this when a boater is under the influence of alcohol and illicit drugs he or she

becomes a double threat to anyone on the waterway due to their impaired judgment. While boating this summer if you suspect someone of operating a motorboat while intoxicated you should call your local law enforcement agency immediately and report the violation. You may also locate the number for

Goodfellas Pizza to host scholarship fundraiser May 4-6 by Danielle Swan

Goodfellas Pizza, 1118 Stitt St., Wabash, will host a fundraising event May 4-6 to benefit the Dallas L. Winchester Scholarship Fund. The scholarship has been established by Jamie Dunmore of Chicago, Ill., formerly of Wabash, in memory of Dallas L. Winchester Sr. and Dallas L. Winchester Jr. These were men who were committed to community service and leadership. Dallas L. Winchester, Sr. is remembered for his leadership abilities, his strong yet charismatic personality and his work ethic and drive for success. Dallas L. Winchester, Jr. is also known for his

charisma, work ethic, leadership, and entrepreneurial abilities. “Dallas Sr. and Dallas Jr. were important people in my life,” says 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 graduates will be able to attend college.” Terri Weaver, daughter of Dallas L. Winchester Sr. and co-owner, with her husband, of

Goodfellas Pizza, has stepped up to host the inaugural fundraising event for the scholarship. The event will begin at 5 p.m. on May 4 and end May 6 at 8 p.m. Tickets for the event will be good for $2 off any 18” pizza at regular price of $1 off any 16” pizza at regular price and can be used for delivery, dine-in or carry-out. Several community leaders have agreed to help out at Goodfellas the weekend of the fundraiser and pass out tickets in the days leading up to the event. These leaders include: Wabash City Mayor Bob Va n l a n d i n g h a m ; Judge Tim Roberts; Judge Robert McCallen III; Judge Chris Goff;

Prosecutor William Hartley; Wade Weaver, 105.9 The Bash; Wendy Frazier, Wabash City ClerkTreasurer; Elaine Martin, Wabash County Clerk; Wabash County Sheriff Bob Land; Wabash City Police Chief Charles Smith; Wabash City Fire Chief Bob Mullett; Roger Cromer, Crossroads Bank; and Todd Titus, Wabash Parks De par tment. Tickets will also be available at Goodfellas Pizza. Weaver will make a matching donation to the scholarship endowment for the amount of funds raised at this event. She hopes to raise $1,000 through the event. “This is our first

Two years ago, BP’s Macondo Wall blew out, taking 11 lives and

Let me explain why I string these, on the surface unrelated, tragic accidents over the past 100 years together. “Human mistakes to meet a real or imaginary deadline.” The Titanic’s captain was not going to be late for the next port of call. NASA management could not miss that narrow space window for launch. Two astronaut crews paid with their lives meeting that deadline. The BP oil well dis-

Burgess honored at Gatorade McLaughlin no hits National Volleyball Player of the Year Knights in TRC opener In its 27th year of honoring the nation’s best high school athletes, The Gatorade Company, in collaboration with ESPNHS recently announced Jordan Burgess of Berkeley Preparatory School, Tampa, Fla., as its 2011-2012 Gatorade National Volleyball Player of the Year. Burgess was surprised with the news at Berkeley Preparatory School by USA Volleyball’s 2011 Beach Female Athlete of the Year, April Ross, who earned Gatorade National Volleyball Player of the Year honors in 1999-2000. “When I received the award, it was a really significant moment for me, so it felt great to surprise Jordan with the news and invite her into one of the most prestigious legacy programs in high school sports,” said Ross, recent champion of the Hermosa Beach Open. “Gatorade has been on the sidelines fueling athletic performance for years, so to be recognized by a brand that understands the game and truly helps athletes perform is a huge honor for these kids.” The award, which recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the field, distinguishes Burgess as the nation’s best high school volleyball player. A national advisory panel comprised of sport-specific experts and sports journalists helped select Burgess from more than 400,000 high school volleyball players nationwide. Burgess is now a finalist for the prestigious Gatorade Female High School Athlete of the Year award, to be presented at a special afternoon ceremony prior to The ESPY Awards in July. The 6-foot-1 senior

outside hitter led the Buccaneers to a 30-2 record and a third consecutive state championship this past season. The state’s returning Gatorade Volleyball Player of the Year, Burgess amassed 553 kills, 366 digs, 48 service aces, 38 assists and 32 blocks while recording a .457 hitting percentage. Also the returning ESPNHS National Junior of the Year, Burgess produced 29 service receptions, 15 kills, 13 digs and four blocks in the 3-1 Class 4A state title win over Bishop Moore. A 2011 USA Volleyball Girls’ Junior National Championships AllTournament selection and two-time Amateur Athletic Union Junior National Girls’ V o l l e y b a l l Championships AllAmerican, she is a member of the U.S. Girls’ Youth National Team. Burgess has maintained a 4.0 GPA in the classroom. A founding director of the “Everyone Should Play” Foundation, a charitable initiative formed in 2009 to assist the area’s disadvantaged youth offset sports registration fees and equipment costs, Burgess has also volunteered locally as a youth volleyball coach. Team manager of the Berkeley Prep boys volleyball squad since 2009 and a participant in a community literacy-outreach program, she served as a team leader at a two-week youth business leadership summer camp in 2007 and 2008. Burgess has also donated her time fundraising on behalf of Heifer International. “Burgess is one of the best players I’ve seen in a long time,” said ESPNHS Volleyball Editor Kirstin Olsen. “She is a powerful and smart hitter in the front row with excellent mechanics. She is equally good attacking from the back row and it’s very hard for teams to

She passes beautifully and can play great defense as well. She is a joy to watch and the best player in the gym. She is the complete package.” Burgess has signed a National Letter of Intent to play volleyball on scholarship at Stanford University beginning in the fall of 2012. “Without question, Jordan is deserving of recognition as the nation’s best high school volleyball player based on her statistics on the court and the impact her accomplishments have had on Berkeley’s success,” said Gatorade President North America and Global Chief Marketing Officer Sarah Robb O’Hagan. “But she is also a shining example to peers and aspiring young athletes of what a leader and a studentathlete should be. She represents everything we hope for in a Gatorade Player of the Year recipient.” The Gatorade Player of the Year program annually recognizes one winner in the District of Columbia and each of the 50 states that sanction high school football, girls volleyball, boys and girls cross country, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, baseball,

The selection process is administered by ESPNHS and the Gatorade high school sports leadership team, which work with top sport-specific experts and a media advisory board of accomplished, veteran prep sports journalists to determine the state winners in each sport. Former notable Gatorade National Players of the Year include: - Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Peyton Manning - WNBA all-time leading scorer and rebounder Lisa Leslie - NFL all-time leading rusher Emmitt Smith - Two-time beach volleyball gold medalist Kerri Walsh For more information on the Gatorade Player of the Year program, including nomination information, a complete list of former winners, and future announcement dates, visit the Gatorade Player of the Year Web site at http://playeroftheyear.g, on Facebook at or follow us on Twitter at ade.

by Gary Andrews The Manchester baseball team started their TRC campaign in grand fashion April 25. Connor McLaughlin threw a no hitter and the Squires pounded out 12 hits in a 10-0 win over Southwood. In the first innng, Southwood’s Robbie Cole was hit by a pitch with two outs, but McLaughlin forced a ground ball to get out of the inning. With two outs in the bottom of the inning Logan Brunn doubled, but pitcher Tim Duell returned the favor getting a grounder to make it a scoreless first inning. McLaughlin dominated in the second, striking out two of the three outs. With two outs in the bottom of the inning the Squires would erupt. Justin Lewis and Cody Harlan drew back to back walks. Grant Schuler then singled home Lewis for the first Squire run. With runners on first and third, Payton Sorg singled in a run, 2-0. Caleb Thomas then reached on an error and the third run scored, 3-0. Logan Brunn would then singled to score run number four, 4-0. McLaughlin would drive in the fifth run with a double and was

Jurgin Cripe came through with a single to drive in a pair of runs and the Squires led 7-0 before the dust settled. In the third, Tim Duell walked and was bunted to second by Kyle Weaver, but the Knights failed to capitalize. In the bottom of the inning Harlan started by reaching on a Knight error. Sorg doubled with one out to out runners on second and third and with two outs Brunn singled home both runners, 9-0. Neither team would score in the fourth. The Squires had two runners on when Knight second baseman Nathan Hollars stabbed

a Payton Sorg line drive to end the inning. Mclaughlin would strike out all three batters in the top of the fifth to set up the bottom. Thomas and Miller walked back to back. Evan Milam pinch ran for Thomas. The Knights decided to change pitchers and go to Colin Gouveia. Gouveia forced McLaughlin in to a fielders choice and the Squires had runners on first and third. Jim Sainsbury then reached on a Knight error which scored Milam to force the ten run rule, 10-0. Connor McLaughlin pitched a no hitter, striking out nine, walking one and hitting one.

MSD Wabash County explains move to 1:1 computing Dear editor, MSD Wabash County is taking a bold step toward our vision to build the mind and character of every student to produce positive citizens for the 21st century. Surviving in today’s world requires us to infuse the 4 C’s into our instruction: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity, in addition to the traditional 3 R’s taught for generations. It is the need to mentor these skills

that requires major classroom changes. Having the right tools in the hands of our students is critical to their success. Students attending one of the MSD Wabash County schools will be getting more than a device. They will be part of a district that has been preparing for this transition for three years. Students will be surrounded by innovative thinkers professionally trained for best practices in using these devices.

gy. MSD Wabash County knows it is not about the device; rather, the significant impact comes from how it is used. We have carefully and strategically prepared our staff to support student growth. We understand and appreciate taxpayer concerns over the financing of this project. We ask that you think back to your education. Was someone willing to take a stand for the students in your

At MSD Wabash County, the emphasis is on learning, not on the device. Wabash MSD County has aggressively sought and won significant amounts of grant money over the last several years. A portion of that money has purchased technology. We are proud to say a nearly equal portion has also been invested in professional development – teaching our educators how best to use this technolo-

day? Someone paid for new school materials in your day. Someone paid for new buses in your day. Someone paid for new buildings in your day. We need you to invest in our students today, so they may have the tools necessary to compete. These devices are simply the tools that are as necessary today as slates and primers were 100 years ago. Our goal is not just to place a device in the hands of every student.

Students will do much more than keyboarding. Collaboration, whether with a classmate or with people 3,000 miles away, will become the norm. Analysis and problem solving skills will be cultivated. We are striving to prepare our student for their future. This can’t be done when the classroom doesn’t align with the “outside world.” Technology is in use everywhere and we must prepare students to excel in life. We believe this is

possible with 21st century tools – and that’s why MSD Wabash County is moving to 1:1 computing – a device for every student in our district. We believe that learning is something students do, not something that is done to them. We believe the device is a tool, not a destination. In many ways, the journey is just beginning for students. For all of us, the work is just beginning. MSD Wabash County

The featured guest artist will be Dr. Craig Cramer, international organ recitalist, who is a professor of organ at the University of Notre Dame. He also serves as organist at St. David of Wales Episcopal Church in Elkhart. Cramer holds degrees from Westminster Choir College and the

Eastman School of Music where he earned the Doctor of Musical Arts degree in organ performance. The Eastman School also awarded him the prestigious P e r f o r m e r ’ s Certificate in organ. One of the most traveled organists of his generation, Cramer maintains an active recital career across the country and in Europe. He has performed in 44 of the United States as well as in Canada. Regularly invited to play some of the most important historic organs in the world,

Cramer’s European concerts have included important organs in Germany, the N e t h e rl a n d s, Denmark and on Buxtehude’s organ in Sweden. He has performed for conventions of the American Guild of Organists, as well as for many AGO Chapters across the country. He has performed the complete organ works of Bach and the complete organ works of Buxtehude in several series of concerts. Dr. Cramer’s performances are frequently heard on the nationally-syndicated

the founding families of the original St. Patrick’s Parish and has always had a special place in his heart for St. Patrick’s Church. He was instrumental in founding the Friends of St. Patrick’s and in restoring the historic 1840’s Henry Erben organ, which is in the loft of the church. He was a life-long member of St. Patrick’s and can remember pumping the windchest of the organ as a choirboy and continued in his service as a lector, cantor, caretaker, etc. all his life. He was a member of and

p r o g r a m , “Pipedreams”, (American Public Radio) and he has 15 CD recordings to his credit. Recently released recordings include the premiere recording of the Notre Dame Fritts organ and the new Fritts organ at St. Joseph Cathedral in Columbus, Ohio. In addition to the organ recital, there will be vocal selections of Paul’s favorite sacred music and an audience singa-long of his Irish favorites. Paul Bever was descended from one of

wore the habit of the lay order of St. Francis. His Irish heritage was displayed in his love for music, art, history, poetry, storytelling, sense of humor and love of people.

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK Noel Haupert for stopping and assisting me on Jan. 25 after I was involved in an accident on Ro a n n / R i c h v a l l e y Road. Noel stopped to see that we were okay and offered his warm truck to me on that cold, icy night. He also gave me a shop towel to wrap my hand in that was cut in the accident. It’s very late, but want him to know how appreciated his concern and thoughtfulness was. Also, thanks to Officer Ducher of the Wabash County Sheriff ’s Department for putting me in his car after Mr. Haupert left until the wrecker was able to get there and for the ride home. It may be his job, but he went over and above what he had to do for me. Again, it was very much appreciated.” Karen Donaldson METRO NORTH NEWS: Yuck! That’s

gross! These comments were heard over and over at Metro North Elementary as Wabash County Hospital Community Educator Teresa Pulley, RCP, CRT, AET, shared a lunchtime health fair display about the effects of smoking. She had a jar of ugly, thick, brown fluid that represented what was deposited in your lungs after a year of smoking one pack of cigarettes per day. This is what drew the most comments. Children also saw a model of a healthy lung and a smoker’s lung. They were amazed at the difference. They were able to see the effects of smoking on the teeth. Many children vowed to never start smoking after they saw the effects. The average age of children starting to smoke is 8-10 years old, so the display and information were very timely for the children of Metro North Elementary School. TWELVE MEMBERS and one guest attended the meeting of the Perry Do-Rites E x t e n s i o n Homemakers’ Club at Miriam Sites’ home on April 10. Betty Heagy was the cohostess. Liz Flaherty gave devotions about the Old Lady in the

Mirror. Betty Heagy read the secretary’s report. Roberta Struck offered the treasurer’s report. Roll call was answered with the memory of a special Easter bonnet. Plans were made for achievement night on May 15 as well as for fair week and conference. Cindy Richardson’s birthday was celebrated, as was Maria Western’s anniversary. The lucky lady was Earlene Nordman. The next meeting will be May 8. If you are interested in attending, please call the Extension Service at 765-472-1921. (From the minutes of the Perry Do-Rite Extension Club) THANK YOU to everyone who helped with the tenderloin meal fundraiser for the Roann Covered Bridge Festival on April 14. The evening crowd was not as large as in the past, but we still had a great turn out and appreciated the support from everyone. It is a fun event for the committee to do and we couldn’t do it without the “extra” helping hands. In other festival planning news, we are hoping to move the amusement rides to the coop lot this year if we can get electricity to the lot. We would also

like to put a large tent on the lot at the south stage area so the entertainment and our guests could be under shelter if it rains. The Lions Club has agreed to pay for part of the cost of the tent. If you would like to donate for the tent rental, you may contact Donna at 765-8335663. We will have the Friday night cruise-in of cars and trucks and possibly a bike show on Sunday afternoon. Spike and the Bulldogs will perform on Thursday night at 8:30 p.m. The J Taylor’s will perform on Saturday, 7-9 p.m., and another band will perform 9-11 p.m. (more details later). God’s Country and more entertainment is still in the planning stages. R O A N N ’ S Stockdale Mill is getting ready for opening day, May 5, noon to 4 p.m., and every Saturday after that through October. There will be special extended hours during the Roann Covered Bridge Festival in September. Volunteers are encouraged to join Jim Watson on Mondays to make improvements in and around the mill. Tour guides and hostesses are needed for the upcoming season. If interested, please contact Peggy Morris at

SurgeryONE, a division of Ortho NorthEast (“ONE”) achieves AAAHC accreditation SurgeryONE, a division of Ortho NorthEast (“ONE”), has achieved accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Accreditation distinguishes this ambulatory surgery center from many other outpatient facilities by providing the highest quality of care to its patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation. Status as an accredited organization means SurgeryONE has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by AAAHC. More than 5,000 ambulatory health care

organizations across the United States are accredited by AAAHC. Not all ambulatory health care organizations seek accreditation; not all that undergo the rigorous on-site survey process are granted accreditation. “We believe our patients deserve the best,” stated Ray Kusisto, CEO of Ortho NorthEast. “When you see our certificate of accreditation, you will know that AAAHC, an independent, notfor-profit organization, has closely examined our facility and procedures. It means we as an organization care enough about our patients to strive for the highest level of care possible.” Ambulatory

health care organizations seeking accreditation by AAAHC undergo an extensive selfassessment and onsite survey by AAAHC expert surveyors - physicians, nurses, and administrators who are actively involved in ambulatory health care. The survey is consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization improve its care and services. “Going through the process challenged us to find better ways to serve our patients, and it is a constant reminder that our responsibility is to strive to continuously improve the quality of care we provide,” said Kusisto.

Lt. Governor Becky Skillman is keynote speaker at grand opening for new fertilizer - Feature Home of the Week terminal of Helena Chemical Company

A new highcapacity fertilizer terminal and distribution center in Huntington was the backdrop for a grand opening hosted by Helena Chemical Company at the facility. Indiana Lt. Governor Becky Skillman was the keynote speaker at the event. The multi-million dollar terminal will service eight of Helena’s retail locations in Indiana, three in Ohio and three in Michigan. The terminal is located at Park 24 industrial park east of Huntington. It will also serve the 14 Helena locations as a distribution center for Helena products. Fertilizer products that will be run through the facility include potash, ammonium sulfate (AMS), pelletized lime, monoammonium phosphate (MAP) and di-ammonium phosphate (DAP), along with distribution of Helena products such as CoRoN, HydraHume and the TraFix line. According to Doug Goff, division manager for Helena in Carmel, the location fits the company’s growing business needs. “To serve our customers better with the products they need to grow profitable, productive crops, we needed a centralized, easily accessible location within a day’s drive of our branches in Indiana, Michigan and Ohio,” he explains. “This site also has a rail siding that can deliver bulk fertilizer and easy access to state highway 24 for our distribution network. The terminal can store up to 70,000 tons of product, and the Park 24 industrial park has plenty of room to expand as our business grows.” Goff works for Helena’s Northern Business Unit, one

of four regional business units of the company. Helena Chemical Company is one of the country’s largest national distributors of crop production inputs and services, including crop protection chemicals, fertilizer, seed and related services. The company was formed in 1957 in West Helena, Ark., and is now headquartered in Collierville, Tenn., near Memphis. In major agricultural regions across the country, Helena services customers from approximately 350 sales locations. Outside of agriculture, Helena’s Specialty Division serves golf course, forestry, industrial, and turf and ornamental markets. Helena also has its own line of products. Within the Helena Products Group, five product categories are divided into two groups— Crop Protection and Crop Production. The Crop Protection Group i n c l u d e s Adjuvants, Seed Treatments and Va l u e - A d d e d Products. The Crop

Production Group i n c l u d e s Nutritionals and BioScience products. Helena’s P ro p r i e t a r y Products are known for their quality and effectiveness in helping producers increase

the efficiency of their operations. Helena’s stated goal is to be the “preferred link between suppliers and customers to those who grow good and fiber and manage vegetation.”
