Proudly Serving Wabash County Since 1977

Wabash County Chamber of Commerce hosts candidate debate Oct. 25 by Brent Swan Several local candidates for the various offices up for election on Nov. 8 met in the Honeywell Center to answer questions prepared by Wabash County’s print and radio media. Charlie Miller moderated the event, which was put on by the Chamber of C o m m e r c e ’ s Government Affairs Committee. Republicans attending the event were: Gilpin, City John Council Dist. 1; Bryan Dillon, City Council Dist. 2; Scott Long, City Council At-Large; Rick Harness, ClerkTreasurer; and current mayor Bob Va n l a n d i n g h a m , Mayor. Democrats attending the debate included: Jim Wenrich, City Council Dist. 3 (unopposed); Pat Lynn, City Council Dist. 4; Margaret “Boo” Salb, City Council Dist. 5; Jim Cosby, City Council At-Large; Joan Haag, City Council AtLarge; and Wendy Frazier, ClerkTreasurer. Several candidates chose not to attend as most cited some confusion over either the format of the debate or the invitations to the debate itself. “I told them I did not like the format of the debate,” Democratic Mayoral Candidate Marcia Short explained. “There was a lot of confusion, and ultimately I decided I would rather get out and talk to the individual voters themselves.” Each candidate that chose to attend was

asked a series of three questions by Miller and was given two minutes to respond. Wabash City Council District 1 John Gilpin (Rep.) vs. Keith Jolly (Dem.)

Do you believe that tax abatements are the best way to bring industries to Wabash? Gilpin: I think its necessary. If we don’t, other cities do it all the time, so they might get those businesses and they won’t come to Wabash if we don’t. This is as far as business abatements. Residential abatements, I have questions about that – how necessary they are. People that build houses or remodel their houses do it without a tax abatement anyway. But it’s on the books now, and has been for many years, so I’m fine with it. If the city were to annex a parcel of land into your district, how would you explain the benefits of coming into the city to those residents of that area? Gilpin: Well the benefits of any place that comes into any part of the city. You get the police and fire protection, the sewer and water services that you don’t have in the rural areas. There are many benefits to becoming a citizen within the city limits. We just recently did that as far as annexing an area outside the new business park this past year. It wasn’t a forced annexation, but there were quite a few people that wanted to be annexed in. What does the City of

Bryan Dillon (Rep.) vs.

Bill Hapner (Dem.)

Do you believe enough is being done to deal with the drug problem in Wabash? Dillon: That’s a tough question. I don’t think you can ever do enough. The way things are changing, you think you conquer one thing before some-

one comes up with another form, sneaking it through convenience and retail stores. I think when we’re posed with a tough situation, we’ll take action whether it be through and ordinance, supporting our Drug Task Force, or (continued on page 6)

Wabash County Clerk Elaine Martin presented the annual hardware maintenance agreement for her computer systems. The contract was approximately $2,400 less than last

year’s agreement. The total cost was $11,310. C o u n t y Coordinator Jim Dils presented two payment applications for the approval of the Commissioners. The first payment, totaling $5,045, was for concrete and railing work at the Courthouse. The second, totaling $71,685, was for the work currently being done on the north façade of the Courthouse. This project includes window replacement and masonry repairs.

The meeting closed with representatives from Wabash County Transit presenting grant applications for the signatures of the Commissioners and presenting an additional appropriation request for $10,000. Transit is in need o this additional appropriation due to fuel costs and increased demand. The Commissioners took the request under advisement and Transit will present the request to Wabash County Council.

ers on marriage and family relationships. “For people to have a chance to hear Dr. Smalley in Wabash is awesome,” Makin said. “He only does limited engagements, and I have been trying for years to get him here. He has literally spoken to more than a million people during his professional career, and we are truly blessed to be able to bring him to the Day of Healing. The theme for this year’s event is “Live Life to the Fullest.” “Dr. Smalley and the other 30 presenters will be sharing their expertise on how to get the most

American Senior Communities honors local woman for professional excellence and dedication

Patty Igelski American Senior Communities, Indiana’s largest provider of senior health care and

living, retirement recently honored key employees, including a Wabash woman, with the coveted “Quest for Excellence” award. They were honored at an exclusive dinner at The Fountains in Carmel, which included a speech by former Washington Redskins NFL quarterback, Tom Flick. Patty Igelski, a certified nursing assistant and restorative aide at Autumn Ridge Rehabilitation

Center, received the “Quest for Excellence” Award because she demonstrated a commitment to excellence, dedication to her job, a positive attitude, and a “whatever it takes” passion for customer service. Based upon these key performance areas, she was one of 52 highly qualified employees selected by their peers to represent their buildings at this prestigious dinner.

“This year’s ‘Quest for Excellence’ Award recipients serve as examples of what a strong work ethic and passion for excellence can accomplish for a company,” said Dan Benson, chief operating officer for American Senior Communities. “These exceptional employees have a strong impact on our company, not only in the quality of care they provide to our residents, but also by

their unsurpassed commitment to customer service. We recognize these employees because they represent the spirit of the core principles and values of American S e n i o r Communities. As a service industry, our greatest resource is our employees.” Dan Benson also stated that, “these employees are truly the physical representation of excel-

winter coats, gloves/mittens, hats, scarves and blankets as well as monetary donations for purchasing children’s coats. It is their prayer to bless as many children and adults as possible through these donations. By

involving the community they hope to not only provide coats free of charge, but to sustain the ministry and be a light in our community, as according to Matthew 5:14,16. Last year, nearly 160 coats were distributed locally. This

year, the coats will be distributed primarily through the M a n c h e s t e r Community Schools Gift of Giving in early December. Donations can be dropped off at these area locations: Seifert’s High 5 Sports, Allen Feeds,

Medical Director responds to recent advertisement Dear editor, Our Wabash Fire Department operates an outstanding paramedic service. All paramedic services must be under the supervision of a medical director, I am that medical director. As the medical director, I must correct the misinformation that a “disgruntled ex-employee,” relying on mere hearsay, recently put in The Paper. I recently approved a new program for our paramedics. A paramedic who is attending a special function can take with him an “event bag” equipped with certain essential supplies, medicines and medical care devices. I was fully informed and approved the paramedic in question taking the event bag to the function as did the Fire chief. At the function, an incident occurred for which the paramedic was trained, and, because of the vent bag, was equipped to respond. During the incident and according to procedure, the paramedic was in contact

Pathfinder Services honors community and staff

Pathfinder Services of Huntington honored individuals and organizations within the communities they serve at their annual

community recognition dinner recently at Huntington University. Mike Perkins from the Pathfinder Services

Board of Directors emceed the event. The keynote speaker for the evening was Dan Caro, who has been proving the

world wrong since he was in diapers. When Caro was two, he was engulfed in a fireball during a gasoline explosion in the garage of his home and was left with third-degree burns on most of his body. Doctors doubted he would survive, and although Caro died on the operating table several times following the accident, his spirit was not ready to give up. As a result of the burn, Caro lost his right hand, most of his left and is severely s c a r r e d . Reconstructive surgery gave him the use of a moveable thumb on his left hand and he is now a respected drummer in the New Orleans area. He has landed gigs with some of the world’s greatest performers such as Ashish Khan, Michael Ray, Walter “ W o l f m a n ” Washington, Karl Denson, Marshall Allen and Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey. Caro is also an author and an ambassador for the Shriners of North America. At the dinner, Bill Hancher, the 2007 Herbert D. LaMont Award recipient, and current Pathfinder Foundation Board of Director member, and Diane Adams, the daughter of Kay

LaFontaine resident responds to editorial Dear editor, This letter is in response to a letter to the editor in the Oct. 5 issue of The Paper. LaFontaine voters need to re-elect the present town clerktreasurer. As the author contends, if the books are so bad, why doesn’t the state auditor make or suggest changes at that time? The clerk-treasurer cannot write off bad debts without the approval of the town board. If that is the case, then the

present town board needs to be replaced, as they are really responsible for this so-called mess, which they are all Republicans. It is sad when a person owns property in the town, but lives in the county and tries to say how the town should run their business. The author’s education was not in finance, so go figure why he thinks only good people are Republicans. It is my experi-

ence that the information on the Internet is not always 100 percent accurate. Just because the records were not to his liking does not mean they are wrong. Now as I see it, if the present clerktreasurer were a Republican, he would not have an issue. There are good people in both parties, so re-elect Linda Harris to town clerk-treasurer for LaFontaine in the coming election.

educating our kids. Here locally I think we have a good grasp on what we want to do, but we’re outmanned. Do you think city departments are adequately staffed? Dillon: Wabash has always had a reputation of running lean departments. Across the board, I think we are adequately staffed. Sure, we’d love to add more police officers, but it takes money to do that. We are lean, no doubt, but we still function very well. Brush pick up, trash pick up, all do a tremendous job. I do believe we provide adequate services to all of our citizens. Is there a particular issue that you feel is important to your district? Dillon: My district is pretty unique. To those of you who don’t know what my district involves, it covers all of downtown Wabash, East and West Hill Streets, East and West Main Street, over by

Wabash City Council District 4 Bonnie Corn (Rep.) vs. Pat Lynn (Dem.)

How can you deal with the Charley Creek flooding? Lynn: With the new industrial park, there are plans to have two retaining ponds that will be able to slow down the water if we have a big rain. That should definitely help the flooding in our area. How do you think city government can help small businesses grow?

Lynn: I think we can provide training opportunities for small businesses. I was a small business owner and your funds are really limited. If you are able to access some training for your employees at a lower fee that would definitely help you as a business owner. Small business is the backbone of the country, and the more we can do to help them exist and take home a profit, then we should do everything w can to help them. Do you think enough is being done about the drug problem in Wabash? For many years I was part of the AACTION group in Wabash for Drug Free Coalition and every year we had to put together a plan to address what was happening right here in our county and dole out the money we had from the fines that our paid here in our county.

younger the people are that you can inform, the better your results are going to be. It’s happening in kindergarten, it happens in the first grade – you can’t just wait until they are in junior high anymore so they are aware of what will happen to their bodies if they use these drugs. Sometimes it won’t help to just deal with the parents, you have to go to the kids themselves. I think the Drug Task Force does a tremendous job, but it’s everyone’s problem. If you know a group of kids that are into using drugs, then you need to step up and do something about it as well. Don’t just look the other way. Wabsh City Council District 5

Scott Long (Rep.) vs. Jim Cosby (Dem.) vs. Joan Haag (Dem.)

Do you believe the City Departments are adequately staffed? Cosby: As far as I can see they are, they are still getting the job done. I haven’t heard any complaints about the services or work not getting done, so I’d say we are adequately staffed. Long: As a council member, we rely on our department heads to determine if they are adequately staffed or if they need additional personnel to complete their mission and if asked I’d be in favor of it if needed. Haag: I think we do a good job on a shoestring budget. We have Cracker Jack people and they are right on the spot from the police to the firefighter and every department. We have good people, they work hard and we appre-

lem. Working everyday in the education system and hearing what the kids have to say. Bringing jobs into the city is another high priority. Everyone likes to believe it’s an easy thing to fix, but everyone in the country is fighting for these jobs. I believe the City of Wabash offers great incentives for large and small businesses to locate themselves here and I think we need to continue to work to attract further businesses to our community. Do you believe there is enough for young adults to do in Wabash? Salb: I think there could be many more, but I think that some opportunities have been squandered by certain kids. I think a lot of the churches and facilities get involved and I think that they offer more than what people realize. We have skate parks, the parks, Eagles Theatre, and the YMCA and I know that kids are using those facilities, but I feel that a lot of them forget about the things we already have in Wabash. Do you think the Wabash City School Board should be appointed or elected? Salb: We are one of the few if not one of the last appointed school boards, and my belief is that appointed school board is the way to go. With an elected school board you open up the opportunity to those with an agenda or a grudge against a coach or someone like that. Sometimes you get sour board members when with the appointed school board you get people who want to be appointed for the right reasons and who have to go through an interview process with the City Council.

Wabash County Chamber of Commerce... continued from page 6 ciate it. What are the best ways to deal with the drug problem? Long: The situation with the drug problem, in my opinion, is simple economics – supply and demand. To take care of the drug problem, we need to eliminate the demand and the supply will dry up. The best way to do that is to get the affected people into treatment so they don’t need the drugs. It’s an expensive proposition and something the City Council can take on, but there are opportunities for people to seek treatment that are cost effective. Haag: As all communities, we’re right in there with all the problems from drugs. Our schools are doing the best they can to educate the kids and bring them up to date at a very young age. This is a community problem, it isn’t just one problem. Cosby: The drug problem is one of those problems where you can’t do too much to remedy the situation. I think we need to continue the efforts we have now through the police department and the

courts and education. One thing I’d like to see investigated is a way parents with kids they suspect of using drugs, and they don’t want the child arrested but they do need help. I know we have the Bowen Center, and I’ve worked at White’s, and I know kids are different now than they were when we were all kids. What can city government do to bring more jobs to Wabash? Haag: I think you are seeing that right now with the opening of the new business park so businesses can create jobs to get our people back to work. We need to use what resources we have as a local government along with those around us to provide businesses with the opportunity to get people back to work. Cosby: We need continue what we are doing right now first of all, but also do more of it. If elected as a City Councilman, I’ll be making contacts myself and call places myself to see if there is any interest whatsoever in coming to Wabash. This is another area where you can’t do too much. Long: I think as a city

and accurate financial situation of the city. I would think the budget process is extremely important as well. I think the Mayor works very closely with Mr. Brown and the department heads to fix the budgets. I also know the city employees think getting their checks are important, so the payroll is important as well. One of the most important aspects of any government office is keeping open the lines of communication and keeping the spirit of cooperation between the various offices. Do you have any specific plans to manage city spending? Harness: I know that I can say I’ll be fiscally responsible and I’ll keep a close eye on the city’s finances. Frazier: After working closely with the State Board of Accounts I know what they want and what they expect. I’m going to maintain the same level of excellence that’s already in place at the ClerkTreasurer’s Office. How are you more qualified than your opponent? Frazier: I’d have to say my 10 years of experience first, that should speak

council we need to use all the resources we have available to us to attract businesses to our area. We have a wonderful Economic Development Group whose job it is to seek new business and to position the city and the county to be able to attract new business. It’s not a city situation, per se, if any jobs are created in North Manchester but they will more than likely employ city residents. We need to work together with EDG and the county government to attract businesses to the City of Wabash and Wabash County. Wabash City ClerkTreasurer Rick Harness (Rep.) vs. Wendy Frazier (Dem.)

What do you consider to be the most important responsibilities of the ClerkTreasurer? Frazier: I would say keeping the Mayor and the city council updated on the financial situation and ultimately keeping track of the incoming revenues and maintaining a balanced budget. Harness: I would agree with Mrs. Frazier that the most important responsibility is to provide the Mayor with the up to date

volumes in itself. I’d also have to say my experience with the State Board of Accounts is also a big asset, I know what they want and want they expect. I also gained the endorsement of the current clerk-treasurer, who has prepared me for this position. Harness: I’ve handled large sums of money throughout my career for the past 30 years and have always had to be accountable for all my reports and transactions. I’ve also spent 30 years of my life dealing with people and I think that is a pivotal portion of this job. Keeping the lines of communication open is vital. I’d work hard at the job, and I think my 30 years of work in a related field qualifies me for this position. Wabash City Mayor Bob Vanlandingham (Rep.) vs. Marcia Short (Dem.)

What is the number one priority in Wabash? Vanlandingham: To me the number one priority is like what other people said tonight, getting infrastructure into the business park to get new jobs and get our people back to work. We’ve done this at a

hard economic time, and we need to get Bill Konyha and his staff what they need to get this project rolling. Right now, we need to get the infrastructure into that park and get it open. Do you forsee any more annexation into the City of Wabash during the next four years? Vanlandingham: I hope the economy gets so big that we’ll be able to keep on annexing, but at this time I’m content with where we are at. Sometimes if you do too much, you don’t do a good job of it. I think we need to concentrate on the areas we have now. Do you think the Wabash City School Board should be an appointed or elected

position? Vanlandingham: As you know, mayors don’t have a whole lot to do with that, it’s a City Council matter. In my personal opinion, as a former City School employee and as a parent, if it isn’t broken then don’t fix it. I feel that sometimes with an elected board you can get carried away with special interests. I have seen firsthand how our City Council handles this process and know how thorough they are. Recently, I read in the newspaper that Wabash City Schools had a 90 percent graduation rate, which is fantastic. With that high of a graduation rate, I’m perfectly content with the way it is.

Happening Here. As a nurse, Kim Waggoner is in tune to other people’s healthcare needs. Early in 2010, Kim became concerned with her personal health issue when she began experiencing unusual swelling in her lymph nodes. Kim visited with her OB/GYN Dr. Caitlyn Ryser who began observing Kim’s symptoms. As the swelling persisted and she developed additional swelling and breathing issues, Kim visited Dr. Sharon Rooney-Gandy who performed a groin biopsy. Following a second opinion at IU Medical Center, Kim was diagnosed at both facilities as having stage IV Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. The disease is non-curable while highly treatable.


“I had heard wonderful things about Dr. Goksel, about his medical expertise in the field of cancer care. I also went to the big city hospital for an assessment. The experience was like comparing night and day. I chose Dr. Goksel as he takes time and carefully answered my list of questions. I felt comfortable with him and the staff at the KCH Cancer Care Center being so close to home,” she said. Kim was treated at the Center in 2010 and is currently on a maintenance treatment schedule. Kim wants to encourage women to listen to their bodies and not wait to see a doctor when sensing something isn’t right.

TO THE PEOPLE THAT CARE ABOUT WABASH A little over a week ago the mayor had an article in the newspaper about how good the wastewater treatment plant was running I worked there for over sixteen years and I can tell you this article was all hype. Let me tell you about the untold story. Normal WWTP’s have grit removal systems, some type of grinder, fine screening systems, and floatables removal (skimmers). The grit removal systems take out sand, rocks, and smaller materials. The grinder reduces items to a smaller and more uniform size. The fine screen removes most of what comes through the grinder. In a later process the skimmers remove the scum that forms in the plant, and any floatables, (rubber, plastic, paper and anything on top), that got by the screening. THE WABASH WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT HAS NONE OF THIS EQUIPMENT. There is a type of skimmer on the clarifiers, but nothing is removed. The floatables return to the head of the plant and just keep going around and around. The only way these items are removed is when there is a heavy rain. The water gets over the inside wall of the weirs, into the drain, and into the Wabash River. This doesn’t say a lot for the person who inspected the plant. In February of this year, a salaried employee stuck a screwdriver into a motor starter to keep it from kicking out. Starters are designed to kick out when overloaded, this was a potentially dangerous situation. The wind blew the door shut on the electrical box and knocked the screwdriver into the tank. The superintendent asked me if that was a special screwdriver. Special screwdrivers are not made to jam motor starters. This proves that there is definitely a place for artificial intelligence. In the last four years I have had a chance to observe what the superintendent does while at the plant, and it seems to me that he spends way too much time surfing on the internet instead of addressing the problems at the plant. He finds and prints trivia to put on the bulletin board to waste the operators’ time with reading them. I kept a sampling of them to print here but just the titles take up too much space. I can honestly tell you that over a four year period there have literally been thousands. Don’t you think his time could be better spent on fixing the plant? If Wabash would completely rebuild one lift station a year, it would be sixteen years before all were finished. The Wastewater Plant puts out fires instead of preventing them. The city has a camera (remotely controlled) to inspect the sewers. As you know cameras are used to take pictures. Unfortunately the city camera is used as a video game. When used in this manner, it not only takes an unnecessary beating, but also costs a lot in repairs. On two different occasions the camera was stuck in a sewer and a contractor was hired to dig up the street to retrieve it. This costs more money. When the camera is put into a sewer and debris is seen, it should be cleaned (the sewer) before putting the camera back in. The vactor (sewer cleaning truck) requires regular maintenance: grease, filters cleaned, and debris box emptied, to name a few. There are times when the debris box is only emptied once in two weeks. The manufacturer recommends every day. This is serious neglect of a very expensive piece of equipment ($250,000.00). Another issue is a customer contracts the cleaning of a private line on a monthly basis. Many times this work is only partially completed, but the customer is charged the same. IS THIS FAIR? Employees spend a lot of taxpayers’ money (wages) doing personal tasks: going home during working hours to plow snow, hauling chips (with city equipment), and letting their pets out to do their duties. Another spends hours on the phone. WHO’S IN CHARGE? How many of you can do this? The mayor tells you his priority is jobs. What has he been doing the last seven and a half years when all the jobs were leaving? The Wastewater superintendent is from Huntington, and a new police-man lives out of town. If he keeps hiring people from out of town, how does that help the jobless in Wabash? Does he think the people from Wabash are too stupid to hold responsible jobs? Don’t let sentiment or “party” cast your vote. Take a deep breath and let common sense take over. Do the right thing and vote all of the incumbents out of office. Remember: ONLY GOD AND YOU KNOW HOW YOU VOTED.

Smith urges North Manchester residents to vote

Dear editor, North Manchester voters have a single contest in this year’s municipal election to be held Nov. 8. All registered voters within the town limits have the opportunity to choose between Chris Garber and Steve Priest, both running for the same seat on the Town Council. I strongly urge all

registered voters to exercise that privilege in this election. Please do not assume that your candidate will win anyway or that your vote won’t make a difference. Ever since I started paying attention to election results over 50 years ago, I have seen many contests like this one — only one race, small geo-

(ARA) - With a growing emphasis on eco-conscious living, homeowners recognize the importance and value of having an energyefficient home. One essential factor for saving energy and maintaining indoor air comfort is sealing the exterior of the home. Insulation and energy-efficient windows play important roles in preventing air leaks where obvious holes are present, however, one hidden area susceptible to energy leaks is the home’s framing. “Homeowners are looking for ways to improve their home’s energy performance,” says Jery Y. Huntley, president and CEO of the Vinyl Siding Institute (VSI), the trade association for manufacturers of vinyl and other polymeric siding and suppliers to the industry. “A common problem with homes today is the thermal bridging effect, which can rob a

home of heat and waste energy and money.” In thermal bridging, the studs act as a passageway for heat to escape. Most insulation helps seal wall cavities, but the wall studs on either side of the cavities are often left exposed, reducing the insulating value of the entire wall. “Continuous wall insulation is crucial to fully seal the exterior and protect against heat loss,” says Jerry Blais, vice president of marketing for Ply Gem, a leading manufacturer of home remodeling and building products. “Insulated siding is one solution that helps reduce the impact of thermal bridging, adding a blanket of insulation over the exposed wall studs.” Backed with polystyrene foam insulation that is integral to the panel, insulated siding can increase a wall system’s R-value, or thermal resistance. The continuous insu-

lation the siding provides over the entire wall can contribute to reducing the energy needed to heat or cool a home. In fact, ENERGY STAR and other programs now recognize insulated siding as a valid material to reduce thermal bridging. Therefore, insulated siding is included in the checklist of products that help homes qualify to earn the ENERGY STAR Qualified Homes label. “The recognition of insulated siding as home insulation in energy codes and energy efficiency programs legitimizes a benefit we’ve known for some time,” says Huntley. Beyond energy efficiency, insulated siding offers many other benefits: * Because it is made with vinyl, insulated siding is low maintenance. It provides the look of real wood, but does not require painting or staining.

* Insulated siding is an exceptionally dry wall system, making it resistant to mold growth and deterioration due to moisture absorption. * The foam insulation backing and wide-style clapboard design options make insulated siding an extremely durable and impact resistant cladding, while improving the exterior wall flatness for added aesthetic appeal. Today’s vinyl siding manufacturers offer insulated siding options at various price points and in an assortment of colors. Blais recommends Mastic Home Exteriors by Ply Gem Structure EPS for superior performance and a wide selection of coordinating designer accents and accessories, which can be found on Options such as Napco by Ply Gem American Essence or Variform by Ply Gem CSL 600 also offer classic styling in numerous colors. If you are considering insulated siding for your next home improvement project, ask your contractor to download a free copy of Insulated Siding as Home Insulation: Guide for Users and Energy Raters, published by the VSI. Available at, this guide offers information on how insulated siding contributes to building energy performance, as well as proper installation techniques.

Fight the battle of rising heating costs (ARA) - With fall approaching, the leaves drop to the ground and the temperature begins to plummet, but your heating bills move in the opposite direction - ‘tis the season of high heating costs. According to early reports, heat and oil prices will continue to rise, which can cut a large chunk out of your home heating budget this winter, if you’re not careful. It’s not too late to do something in the battle against rising heating costs. You can start by winterizing your home, plugging up the leaks and drafts that deplete energy - and your family budget. Here’s your money-saving strategy: * Start early - When the weather is still balmy, take care of the places outside your home where the uncomfortable chill of new seasons can creep indoors. Then, move inside to ensure there are no “holes” in the house where the chilly drafts of winter can hide. * Be prepared Rounding up products in the fall that will ensure comfort and warmth is a DIY task that is easier than you think. With the affordable, easy-to-use tools on the market, the job is doable in a weekend. Try these products for a sure victory in the heating cost battle: For interior and exterior doors, there’s Duck brand Double Draft Seal. Engineered to hug the bottom of a door or window from both sides, the seal offers two layers of protection from drafts. It has exclusive adjustable straps to keep the seal from sliding and getting stuck in the door. The seal is designed to work on a variety of floor types and features abrasionresistant, washable fabric. It works well on windows as well. The window can be closed onto the flat middle section for a snug, double sided seal. Stop drafts through

windows by using Duck brand Roll-On Window Kits, which provide an airtight seal against the energysucking winds of winter. These kits are practically invisible, come in a variety of sizes, are easy to install, fit snugly to your window frame and can be easily removed come spring. You might also consider dressing your windows for the winter. Thermal drapes, blinds or other window clothing can protect not only your windows and your family’s comfort, but your finances as well. If you are able to make a more costly investment in window replacement, double glazed windows provide the best protection against wind and ice. For outdoor faucets that freeze from frustrating cold winds, consider covers that insulate and protect. Faucet covers can help prevent pipes from freezing and save on expensive repair work. Duck brand offers two kinds of faucet covers: a rigid foam version and a flexible, insulated version. These faucet covers work on a variety of faucet types. Layer up - As the winds of November cause you to wear extra layers, it’s time to think about insulation for your home too. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that homeowners can typically save up to 20 percent of heating and cooling costs (or up to 10 percent of total

energy costs) by air sealing their homes and adding insulation in attics, floors over crawl spaces, and accessible basement rim joists. Discover the best products available, such as foam or eco-friendly ways to do it yourself. Insulation does not require maintenance, upkeep or adjustment, so it’s a reliable member of the team that will secure your home from the frigid weather. Protect the warmth Make sure your furnace is well maintained, which means cleaning filters monthly to maximize their efficiency (and save money). At a minimum, change the filter every three months. A dirty filter will slow down air flow and make the system work harder to keep you warm or cool - wasting energy. A programmable thermostat is ideal for people who are away from home during set periods of time

throughout the week. According to EnergyStar, a properly programed thermostat can save about $180 every year in energy costs. Plug the holes through walls - Select Duck brand Socket Sealers to combat the cold air that invades your home from indoor and outdoor electrical outlets and switch plates. They are easy to install and made from flame retardant foam. Rubber, foam or silicone weatherstrip seals can also be used to insulate around doors and windows and keep your home comfortable and cozy. Make yourself a promise this fall - you will close the door on heat loss, slam the windows on energy drain and reward yourself with ample savings throughout the winter. Improving your household’s energy budget will help keep your family warm and comfortable, so start early.

Fire safety tips to protect your family (ARA) - House fires happen more frequently during the winter months each year due to holiday decorations, malfunctioning furnaces and increased use of cooking appliances and fireplaces, according to the U.S. Fire Administration. Fire Prevention Month in October is a good time for homeowners to make fire escape plans and take

ies in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. Go through your entire house and make sure you put new Duracell CopperTop batteries in every detector. You should have a smoke detector on every floor in the house, as well as just outside of every bedroom. “Installing a smoke detector is one of the strongest defenses for a family to prevent devastating fires and ensure loved ones are alerted and escape a potentially dangerous situation,” says Philip Stittleburg, chairman of the National Volunteer Fire Council. “A good habit to develop is to replace your batteries in your smoke detector every fall to ensure the detectors will work in the event there is a fire in your home.” * Have your fireplace cleaned and inspected. Residue from previous fires can build up in the chimney, and if the conditions are right, catch on fire. Schedule a chimney cleaning every year if you plan to use your fireplace. * Unplug holiday decorations when you’re away from the house or have gone to bed. * If using space heaters in your home or garage, keep them at least three feet away from any objects, and don’t

leave them running and unattended. * With all the holiday cooking you’re bound to do, be sure to practice safe cooking methods. For instance, keep anything flammable away from the stove and oven, always roll up your sleeves when working around a hot range and never leave the kitchen unattended when cooking. * Store lighters and matches out of reach of children and pets, and never leave a burning candle unattended. * Establish escape routes for second story and higher rooms. You may need to purchase escape ladders that can be stored under the bed in case a family member would need to leave the house through the window. * Organize a family escape plan. Put the plan down on paper, and then run through it several times so everyone - including your youngest children - knows exactly how they’re getting out of the house, and where they’re supposed to meet outside. Review this plan yearly. All members of your family can work together to prevent fires. With a fire safety plan in mind, you’ll be able to enjoy the fall and winter months without worrying about your family’s safety.

Maximize your melting this winter (ARA) - Snow typically starts falling across the U.S. in November, according to the National Weather Service. In 2010 more than onethird of the country was covered with powdery flakes by Thanksgiving. It’s during this time people flock to the store to pick up shovels and snow blowers. Yet, one of the most versatile snow safety tools consumers have in their winter arsenal is ice melt. It’s easy to believe that all melters are the same, but much like you use one cleaning product for the bathtub and another for the countertop, you should also use specialty melters designed specifically for your environmental and safety needs. Choosing the wrong melter can not only waste time and money, it can cause unnecessary harm to sidewalks, driveways, pets and vegetation. Getting educated about how ice melt works and how to select the right one can be instrumental in having a fun and safe season. Facts about freezing Although many people believe ice melters damage concrete, the true culprit is the temperature. When ice melts naturally, it turns into liquid. which runs down into the pores, or small holes, in concrete. When this liquid refreezes, it expands (similar to water in an ice cube tray that freezes) which may push apart the concrete and cause damage. The more times the temperature goes above and below freezing, the more times ice melts and freezes, leading to a greater risk of damage to concrete. If protecting concrete is your number one safety priority this season, try

Morton Safe-T-Plus. It contains hydroxyl ethyl cellulose (HEC for short) which actually helps form a protective seal to prevent melted ice from seeping into concrete pores, which can prevent costly damage to concrete walkways, driveways and steps. Protect people, plants and pets “Many consumers mistakenly believe all ice melt products are salt-free because sodium isn’t listed as an ingredient. The truth is, any chloride is actually a form of salt,” says Sara Matuszak, brand manager at Morton Salt. Sodium chloride, potassium chloride, magnesium chloride and calcium chloride are all common ice melt ingredients which can be irritating to pets’ paws. For pet parents, Morton Safe-TPet provides a saltand chloride-free solution that’s veterinarian-recommended to be safer for pet paws, skin and eyes than traditional melting salt. Not one size fits all Even in America’s snow belt, average monthly temperatures don’t typically fall below zero degrees Fahrenheit. A recent ice melt study from Michigan Technological University, a leading authority on snow removal and melter testing, found using only extreme temperature melters like calcium chloride was not necessary in most conditions. For smart melting, experts recommend having two types of melters on hand, one for normal winter conditions and one for extreme temperature drops. In normal winter temperatures (5 F and above), an “everyday” melter that contains milder ingredients like urea and potassium chloride are best. These

melters clear ice and snow but are safer for plants, pets and people than traditional melting salt. For the few occasions when temperatures drop drastically (below zero F) use an “extreme” melter that contains calcium chloride. These products can be less safe than the milder ingredients listed above, but they can be necessary to keep driveways and walkways clear and safe

in extreme conditions. No matter whether you expect to see one inch of snow this season or 100, read the label before you buy and seek out products with thirdparty performance validation to ensure the ice melt you bring home is up for the job. For more information, visit w w w. m o r t o n

Police chase leads to unrelated recovery of stolen firearm

During an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) stop, vehicle operator Jeffrey Farmer, 32, Beaver Dam, fled from an Indiana conservation officer near Beaver Dam Lake on Oct. 23. Farmer fled on his ATV before dumping it at CR 900 S. Farmer led authorities on a threehour search before he was taken into custody by Kosciusko County Sheriff deputies approximately two miles from the initial stop.

a paramedic and a volunteer firefighter and how dare you, Mr. Hapner, question his integrity! Even if the individual from the fire department did commit this “alleged” act, to call into question the ethics of my husband, his colleagues and numerous other paramedics is inexcusable.

If Mr. Hapner believes the situation needs to be investigated, why has he not contacted the proper authorities instead of making public accusations? He needs to have facts and evidence when dealing with such a serious matter, not a bunch of questions to which he obviously does not know the answers. I can answer one of his questions for him: “Do all paramedics carry drugs in their private vehicles?” The answer is no. How insulting to even see such a question in print! My husband is

member of the Wabash Fire Department. I am not writing to dispute whether or not this incident took place. The manner in which the incident is addressed and the implications within are my concern. What I gathered from this ad is that Mr. Hapner believes a cover-up took place in the mayor’s office and in turn, the Wabash Fire Department. I have dealt with the Wabash Fire Department and they have never been anything but courteous and professional.

Lady Knights fall one game short of State Finals Manchester Jr./Sr. High School creates Athletic Hall of Fame The Southwood Lady Knight volleyball team traveled to

THE LADY KNIGHTS traveled to Bremen on Oct. 29 with hopes of having another shot at second-ranked Wapahani in the final game. They defeated Luers in the first game, earning them that chance. (photo by Gary Andrews)

THE LADY KNIGHTS fell to Wapahani. Final scores were 30-28, 18-25, 13-25, 27-25, 8-15. (photo by Gary Andrews)

Knights had a 12:30 date with Ft. Wayne Luers in hopes of having another shot at second-ranked Wapahani in the final game. A win against Luers would put the Knights in the state’s final four. Wapahani fulfilled their part of the rematch, sweeping Wheeler in game one 25-12, 25-14, 25-21. The youthful Knights showed a few jitters early on in the first game against Luers. After starting off to a 4-0 lead, Luers would rally with a 7-0 run to take a 9-6 lead and held on to beat Southwood 25-19 in game one. After losing game one, the Knights gained their composure and swept Luers the next three games 25-22, 25-20, 25-16 to win the match and earn a shot at Wapahani for the semi-state title and a berth at the state final game on Nov. 5. Wapahani had defeated Southwood earlier in the year and managed to break the Burris win streak of 14 straight state titles in their sectional earlier in the tournament. Just because Wapahani had defeated Burris and were the highest ranked team left, did not mean the Knights were going to just roll over. Wapahani controlled the lead early, but a Kristen Murphy kill put the Knights up 10-9 and gained some valuable confidence. At 10-9 the two teams would trade blows with the lead changing seven times by the time it was 2020. The Knights would go on a 4-0 run with a kill from Kaley Harness and a block from Lexi Brickner to

lead 24-20. Wapahani would score the next four points to knot the score at 24 and it was back and forth after that. Tied at 28 after a Drew Rhamy kill the Knights would score the next two points and win game one 3028. Wapahani would flex their muscle in the next two games, defeating the Knights 25-18 and 25-13, forcing the Knights to win out. In game two Southwood had Wapahani tied at 18 before the Raiders went on a 7-0 run to end the game. In game three Southwood was down just 14-9 when a Raider 5-0 run put the game away. In game four, the Knights would show why they were also ranked in the top ten. Drew Rhamy had four kills in the first seven points and was followed with kills from Kristen Murphy and Kaley Harness pushing the Southwood lead to 12-8. Wapahani cut the lead to one point three times and eventually took a 2221 lead. The Knights fought back and after an Alyssa Stout ace took the lead back at 23-22. The game went on to be tied at 24 and 25. Kaley Harness would record a kill and the Knights scored the next point to win game four 27-25. It all came down to one game to decide who would make the trip to Ball State Nov. 5 for a chance at the state title. Tied at 1, Wapahani would rattle off nine consecutive points to take a 10-1 lead, which was too much for the Knights to make up, losing game five 15-8 and the match 3-2. The final scores were 30-28, 18-25, 13-25, 27-25, 8-15

Norse rally late, fall short against North Miami The Northfield football team had won their last four games, including a first round sectional win over LaVille last week and clinched their first winning season since 1980. Northfield traveled to North Miami in the second round of the sectional after falling to the Warriors earlier in the season 46-19.

The much improved Norse were not making the trip to North Miami to just show the Warriors they had improved, they were there to beat them. Four more yards on a fourth down play and that could have become a reality. The Norse knew they had to put together the perfect

game to top the potent Warrior offense and that just about happened, falling to North Miami 13-7. The Norse took the first possession of the game and two plays later turned the ball over on a fumble. The defense however would answer the call, forcing the Warriors to a four and out. (continued on page 24)

Norse rally late, fall short against North Miami continued from page 23 As both defenses dominated, the first score didn’t come until 3:16 to go in the quarter when North Miami quarterback Austin Barker connected with Austin See on a 27-yard scoring strike to make it 70. The first quarter would end at 7-0. Starting the second quarter, the Norse defense held again, forcing North Miami to punt. The Northfield offense would then go to

work. After a couple Andy Roser runs had taken the ball to the 47, it was fourth and one and the Norse decided to go for it. A pitch to Hunter Wells went to the Warrior 32 and the Norse were in business. On the next play, North Miami forced a Norse fumble and killed the drive. Each team would have one more possession in the quarter, with neither being able to

move the ball as the half ended with North Miami leading 7-0. North Miami had the ball to start the second half, moving the ball down the field. The Norse defense bent, but did not break and forced a Warrior punt. The punt got a good roll down to the Northfield four-yard line. After one Northfield first down it was 4th and a foot to go, on the Norse 29. With the running game working all night, the Norse decided to go for it. North Miami stuffed the line, stopping any penetration and took over on downs on the Norse 29. The quarter ended with the score still at 7-0, but the Warriors were knocking on the door. Two plays into the

fourth quarter, the Warriors scored their second touchdown on a run by Austin Barker to make it 13-0. Northfield blocked the extra point and trailed 13-0. The Norse offense went nowhere on the next possession, but Dustin Echard nailed a beautiful punt to the Warrior 18. On North Miami’s next possession, the break the Norse had been waiting for came. Hunter Wells recovered a Warrior fumble on the 20 to give the offense new life. After an Echard run made it first and goal from the nine, Wells took it in with 7:32 to go and after the Andy Roser extra point, the score was 13-7. With momentum on their side, the Norse defense forced a four

An Austin Curless run took the ball to the North Miami 46 with 2:22 to

go, before Wells and Roser would take it to the 34. After two plays went nowhere, Wells moved the ball to the 30, making it fourth and five with 54.4 to go. Curless was stopped short on the

play, icing the game for the Warriors. Hunter Wells led the Norse in rushing with 55 yards, while Andy Roser had 45 yards. The Norse did not complete a pass.

Timbercrest to host Second Trusts Seminar; First Financial vice president to present Timbercrest Senior Living Community will host the second portion of a two-part financial planning series focusing on trusts. The seminar will be held Nov. 10 in the Timbercrest Assembly Room and will begin at 7 p.m. The session will be presented by First Financial Bank Vice President and Trust Officer Steven Hammer, JD, CTFA. At the first session on Oct. 13, Hammer examined the basic concept of a trust and how revocable living trusts operate. He covered the basic terminology used in creating the trust and offered simple examples of their operation. The second session will be held on Nov. 10. Hammer will begin with a brief review of the material covered in the first seminar and will then look into trusts a little deeper. He will explain more advanced uses of trusts and how they can protect families and their assets and save taxes. He will also address using trusts to promote education and to assist charities. This session will build on the first, but even attendees who were not at the first session will be able to follow along easily. The second session will be a time to simply gather information about trusts to help attendees plan financially for their future. The educational seminar is free with no obligation or sales content. Plan to attend this trust seminar on Nov. 10 at Timbercrest.

New aquatic and fitness center named

Two major donors recognized in “Strauss Peabody Aquatic and Fitness Center”

that naming in their honor is the most appropriate way to recognize their generosity. Mary K. Peabody was a lifelong resident of North Manchester, the last member of her immediate family, the only child of Thomas A. and Mary M. Peabody and the only grandchild of James B. and Estelle Peabody, also prominent North Manchester residents. Both during Miss Peabody’s lifetime, most often anonymously, and after her death in 1991 through her foundation, she gave generously and frequently to enhance the wellbeing of the greater North Manchester community. The aquatic and fitness center is the last project for the Mary K. Peabody Foundation and the first project was to finance the total construction of the North

Don and Billie Strauss also funded the Strauss Center at Peabody Retirement Community and other quality of life and economic development efforts that have benefited the community. The gift to the aquatic and fitness center also recognizes their daughters, Sally and Patty, their sons-inlaw Bob Krouse and David Grant, and their grandchildren, Dan and Sam Krouse and Sarah, Leah and Emily Grant. All are residents of North Manchester, as have been members of the family for six generations. In presenting this gift for the community center, Mr. Strauss stated, “We are pleased to participate and appreciate the opportunity to support what will be a wonderful asset to the community. We are grateful for those who have worked so hard to bring this project to fruition.” Three hundred and twenty-seven donations were pledged toward the building of a new aquatic and fitness center after the old facility had to

Still expected is completion of a $1,000,000 endowment fund to take care of the future major maintenance needs of the facility. So far, approximately $300,000 has been pledged toward that effort and an organization created to support North Manchester parks and recreation facilities named “Splash Pals” has committed to raising the additional $700,000 needed to meet that goal. The center is scheduled to be completed around Thanksgiving and should be open for use by the public well before Christmas. It includes two swimming pools, a fitness center, a sauna, steam room, whirlpool, an outdoor splash pad and an activity room as well as dressing rooms for families and state-ofthe-art support systems such as dehumidification as well as energy efficiency enhancements.

Indiana Lions Eye Tissue Bank’s beginning, they have provided sight to thousands of Hoosiers with the first transplant being performed in 1961. In 2000, they provided 847 eyes/corneas for transplant and 90 percent of the corneal tissue needed throughout the state of Indiana. Currently, the Eye Bank has a full-time staff of 13 and parttime staff of 25 with offices in Dyer, Fort Wayne, South Bend, Evansville and Indianapolis as well as a sister Eye Bank in Nepal. Another more recent program of the Eye Bank is “Operation Kid Sight,” a program that Wabash County Lions Clubs participate in. “Operation Kid Sight” is an eye-screening program for pre-school children, ages 1 to 6. A screening device is used to identify children whose eyes may have some type of defect, which if left untreated could lead to a lifetime of vision problems. The screening is provided as a service project at no

charge to the parents, child, or the day care operator. The funds are provided through services and projects of The Indiana Lions Eye & Tissue Transplant Bank, the Lions Clubs of Indiana and generous contributions from both individual and corporate donors. To read more about the great work the Eye Bank does and how to make a donation of sight, visit their web site. Just “Google” Indiana Lions Eye and Transplant Tissue Bank. During the business meeting, Nov. 5 Fish Fry plans were discussed. Members were told that the cooler used for the Fish Fry and other events was out of order and could not be fixed. A new cooler has been ordered and will be delivered in time for use at the Nov. 5 Fish Fry. Ninety new chairs are in place to be used at the Nov. 5 Fish Fry. Donations towards the $3,000 cost of the chairs in the amount of $900 has been received. If anyone else would like to help offset a portion of the remaining cost, checks made out to the Urbana Lions Club can be sent to Treasurer Mary Ann Mast, 1906 N 100 W, Wabash, IN 46992.

According to the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, about a quarter of the nation’s population – approximately 70 million people – are potentially eligible for VA benefits and services because they are veterans, family members or survivors of veterans. The VA Aid and Attendance Pension benefit, one of the many benefits available through the VA, offers eligible veterans or their surviving spouses a significant monthly pension, ranging from $1,056 to $1,949 per month taxfree. To be eligible, veterans must have served 90 consecutive

days or more with at least one day during a wartime period (World War II, Korea, etc) and meet a few medical and financial eligibility criteria. As part of an ongoing commitment to eldercare making more affordable, they are working to educate the local community about the availability of Aid and Attendance benefits. During a workshop, attendees will be reviewing the eligibility criteria and show how thousands of families, even in cases of higher net worth, have become eligible for this benefit helping to offset the cost of the care being provided.

P e a b o d y R e t i r e m e n t Community is hosting this educational workshop about VA benefits on Nov. 10 at 6:30 p.m. The event will take place at Peabody Retirement Community in the chapel, which is located at 400 W. 7th St., North Manchester, IN 46962. The workshop is free and open to the public. Please call 260982-8616 Ext. 1128 to register, and if you know someone else who could benefit from this information, please bring him or her along. If you are unable to attend the workshop, please visit for more information about the

benefit. “The Peabody approach to retirement living isn’t just different,” says Sue Roesner, director of marketing. “It’s all about making a difference in the lives of the entire extended family. Every day residents and their family members enjoy a peace of mind and a security knowing that Peabody’s continuum of health care services is available if ever needed. Peabody’s staff enjoys the knowledge that they are empowered to make an extraordinary impression on each resident, family member and co-worker each and every day.”

L A F O N TA I N E CHRISTIAN CHURCH MEMBER CARE went to Ugaldes on Oct. 18 for a great meal and fellowship. Those attending included: Chris Tomak, Connie Knable, Jackie Pilgrim, Rick Smalling, Mary Ruth Mendenhall, Jean Mills, Ethel and Larry Eib. The next lunch outing will be on Nov. 15 at Bob Evans in Wabash. They plan to eat at 11:30 a.m. This is a great way to get to know people. LAFONTAINE CUB SCOUTS met at LaFontaine Community Building for a hot dog/award supper. This was to be a wiener roast/award night, but because of rain it was moved to the community building. Games and food were enjoyed by the cub scouts and family. LARRY AND MYSELF hosted the Eib annual wiener roast/carry-in on Oct. 15. We had great food and fellowship. We always enjoy having his or my family in for a get-

together. THE STORY ABOUT the big football game that was held here with the college from South Bend many years ago: I still have not heard from anyone who knows anything about this. I have been told that this was held where Ashland and Grant streets are today. There was a big meal after the game, held upstairs in the building that is now the Town Hall. This is all I have been told. If anyone has a better account of this, would you please email or send me the information? THE PICTURE OF THREE LADIES that was published in my column several weeks back: no one has told me if they recognized any one of them. If you do, please send me the information. It is shame that pictures are here and no one knows who they are. This tells me I need to get busy and put names on backs of my pictures. I know when we went though my mom’s pic-

November 2, 2011

iPads for a variety of activities. In a recent project, students in Mrs. Mary Donaldson’s second grade class split up into teams. Each team used the iPad to take a picture of a staff member.

Roann man charged with numerous federal waterfowl violations

Indiana conservation officers investigating gunshots in the early morning hours of Oct. 15 in northern Wabash County uncovered a significant case of a hunter shooting over his legal limit of waterfowl near the Lukens Lake area. Conservation officers located two waterfowl hunters on private property who were hunting a small farm pond with large numbers of waterfowl pouring into it. Amos Haywood of Roann was hunting with his father as assisting officers converged on the area. As the investigation unfolded, it was determined that Amos Haywood had shot 19 waterfowl over his legal limit which included; two Canadian geese, 10 mallard ducks and seven wood ducks. The legal daily bag limit for ducks is six and for Canadian geese is two. His father was found to have shot a legal limit of waterfowl and was not charged. Haywood was subsequently charged in federal court for the violations and his firearm was seized. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Individuals that shoot more wildlife than they are legally allowed are stealing from the ethical hunters who understand the true meaning of hunting and conservation,â&#x20AC;? said a conservation officer. Sportsmen are encouraged to report wildlife crimes to the Indiana Turn In a Poacher (TIP) hotline at 1-800-TIPIDNR.

Big Buck contest nets first two entries as archery season draws to close

by Brent Swan After a slow start to the fourth annual Big

Buck contest, two bucks were entered as the weather finally

cooled off. Ethan Miller and Whitney Carver, both of North

Megan Burke and James Getz to wed Nov. 11

Megan Elizabeth Burke and James Donald Getz, both of Wabash, announce their engagement. Megan is the daughter of Herald Burke of Woodburn and Sandra Davis of Haviland, Ohio. She is a graduate of

Wayne trace Jr./Sr. High School. She is currently employed in accounts receivable at Landmark Management. James is the son of Joe and Lynn Getz, Wabash. He is a graduate of Southwood Jr./Sr. High School.

He is currently employed as a machinist at Ford Meter Box. The couple plans to wed Nov. 11, 5 p.m., at First United Methodist Church. Pastor Kurt Freeman will officiate.

Manchester, brought in this year’s first bucks. Miller’s deer, the first official entry of Season 4, scored 160 7/8 inches. The buck featured 11 points and a 17 5/8 inch inside spread. Carver’s buck, her first taken with a bow, measured out at 112 7/8 inches. The 9point stands as the only entry in the women’s division. This season, the Big Buck contest is being scored the same way as it has in the past as no deductions are taken. The prize package varies slightly this year, as we are going to give away a $150 gift card to the overall winner to his or her choice of Bass and Bucks, Just Hunt, Wabash True Value or Wabash Big R. The second place entrant will then receive his or her choice of the remaining gift cards, as will the third and fourth place finishers. In addition to the gift card, the winner will also receive a $150 certificate for this year’s Big Buck to be mounted by Barton’s

Taxidermy, Lagro. There will be a youth division, women’s division and men’s division again this year. Regardless of where the division winners finish in the overall leaderboard, the women’s and youth division winners will receive a certificate from Ballschmidt Family Processing, Lagro. This year’s contest will continue through the end of muzzleloader season, at which point the winners will be announced. To schedule a time for scoring or for more information, contact Brent Swan at 260-563-8326.
