this fundraiser will be used to further restore the Historic Woman’s Clubhouse, 770 W. Hill St., Wabash. The form to receive a letter can be found on page 12 of this edition issue of The Paper. Forms to receive the letters are sent to the Woman’s Clubhouse “We have retired teachers from MSD and Wabash City Schools who are ‘helping with the organization of the letters,” said Ellen Stouffer, a five-year member of the Woman’s C l u b h o u s e Association. Each individual child will receive their customized letter from Santa the week before Christmas. The Historic Woman’s Clubhouse was built in 1889 as an orphanage. “Joseph Hipskind was the designer and builder. He also built the library and other

small so little legs could go up.” The orphanage housed 47 children at its opening, and continued housing children until White’s Residential, then called White’s Institute, opened. “It was very hard, financially, for the orphanage,” said Carol McDonald, president of the Woman’s Clubhouse Association. “They had a farm out here and they had their own chickens and cows for milk.” After the orphanage closed, the building became the first city hospital in Wabash. It became The Woman’s Clubhouse in 1930 when the association was incorporated by the women of Wabash. McDonald has been a member of the Woman’s Clubhouse Association since 1952. Her wedding reception was held at the Clubhouse.

wasn’t available,” McDonald recalls. The Woman’s Clubhouse is owned by the City of Wabash and maintained by the association. Five years ago, it was in jeopardy of being closed due to its deteriorating condition. At that time, the association and the City partnered to help save the historic landmark. Stouffer and her husband, Bill, became involved at that point. “We say they saved the building, more or less. They became interested because of their love for history and when they came on board is when things started changing,” McDonald said. “Ellen has been the force behind all of this. She has gotten grants and things and she has done a lot of work to help with this.” “The board of the Woman’s Clubhouse really decided that they were going to

MRS. CLAUSE, Carol McDonald, president of the Woman’s Clubhouse Association, is preparing personalized letters to send to children as a fundraiser for the Historic Woman’s Clubhouse.

(photo by Danielle Smith) make a concerted effort to see if they could raise enough money to make it a viable building again,” Stouffer said. She went on to say that this spurred a major growth in membership to nearly 700 individuals. This surge in membership helped to pay bills and complete the first project: a new heating and cooling system. “You couldn’t afford to heat the building. It had this horrible boiler that took 45 minutes to get to tempera-

Due to an unusual turn of events, the dining room was restored twice. The room above the dining room was formerly used as an operating room, so it’s floor consists of a 12-inch slab of cement, which keeps the building from shifting. After two earthquakes shook the building, the immovable state of the walls caused them to crack. “Last winter, Steve Lake, who was also the major restorer of the Auburn Cord (continued on page 4)

ture before it would even start to heat the building,” Stouffer recalled. Once the new heating and cooling systems were installed, people began working on the interior of the building, room by room. “It was very dowdy and brown and so several ladies and gentlemen started to restore things. We’ve been able to work in all of the rooms downstairs; the upstairs still needs restoration,” Stouffer said.

M r s . Va n l a n d i n g h a m ’ s first-grade class at Metro North Elementary recently shared their own recipes for Thanksgiving turkeys. Tristan Barlow I go to Grandma’s house to get a turkey. She has a turkey in her chicken house but he doesn’t know when we’re gonna get him. We all get in a circle around him and I’m the one that will catch him. Kill the turkey with a big fork. Put the turkey in a bucket of hot water to get the fur off. Use your fingers to get it all off. Cut the skin off and get the meat out. Go inside the house to cook it. Put salt and sugar

on the turkey and put it in a pot. Then you put it in the oven. Cook the turkey for 11 minutes at 12 degrees. Put a fork in the turkey when you think it is done. If stuff sticks to the fork when you take it out of the turkey, it ain’t done. When the turkey is done, take it out of the oven, put it on a plate. Have Grandma cut the turkey with a sharp knife and eat it! I like to have ketchup to dip my turkey in. John Clark Go into the woods and look for a turkey. They blend in with the trees so it will be hard to find one. You might find one in a beaver’s home. When you find one, try to (continued on page 8)

American Red Cross to provide holiday deliveries to local military kids

Throughout the year the American Red Cross of North Central Indiana partners with local military families to provide a variety of resources and this holiday season is no different. During this holiday season the American Red Cross wants to provide a special holiday delivery to local military kids. “It is exciting that we are able to expand our services to local military families,” said Mitch Figert, Executive Director of the American Red Cross of North Central Indiana. “We are always listening to the needs in our communities and decided this would be a new way to reach out to those who might need a little extra help this holiday season.” Thanks to the generosity of donors through Operation Homefront the American Red Cross has been collecting toys from local Dollar Tree locations. These toys, along with other donations, will be used to provide a tote bag for each child with a variety of small toys or other items for them. The eligibility is simple - the child simply has to have a parent currently involved with the armed forces. All branches are eligible and the parent can be

continued. “We want to thank the kids for their sacrifice and remind them how proud and thankful we are for our local military families.” To enroll your children, or to refer a family who could benefit from this program, simply call the American Red Cross Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. at 888-5632658. Individuals can also enroll by emailing and requesting an enrollment form. The Red Cross will continue to accept enrollment forms until their

active duty, National Guard or a reservist. The parent does not have to be deployed, but preference will be given to families who currently have a member deployed in current operations. The child also have to live in one of the six counties served by the American Red Cross of North Central Indiana which includes Cass, Grant, Howard, Miami, Tipton and Wabash Counties. “Military kids have to face time away from their loved one rather it is for a deployment or weekend training,” Figert

inventory of toys are depleted. The packages of toys will be delivered between December 15th and Christmas Eve by local American Red Cross staff and volunteers. Anyone wanting to get involved in this program by donating or volunteering time should contact the American Red Cross at the number above. The American Red Cross of North Central Indiana is proudly supported by the local United Ways and United Funds in their service area.

Woman’s Clubhouse is one of three remaining woman’s clubhouses in Indiana, and it is on the National Register of Historic Places. Membership to the association pays for the operation of the building and fundraisers are used to further the association’s mission: “Preserving the past while serving the future.” The Woman’s Clubhouse is available for rental for special occasions such as baby showers, birthday parties, family reunions and dinners. The building will accommodate 90 people between its two dining rooms. Heather Chenault is the on-staff chef that is available for catered meals or renters may bring in their own food for events. “It is a wonderful place for family reunions, we have several in the summer, because the chil-

“We were the recipients of $4,500 from Chili for Charity and that is our beginning money for the restoration of the back porch,” Stouffer said. “There was a three story back porch on the back of the building that a lot of people in the community will remember. It was just absolutely stunning and our goal is to restore that so it will be usable again.” The original back porch withstood 100 years of use; the current structure is 20 years old and has fallen into disrepair. Besides the Letters from Santa fundraiser, the Woman’s C l u b h o u s e Association is facilitating a Moms’ Night Out in the spring; Sip ‘n Shop on Dec. 9, featuring 25 vendors; Christmas Dinner on Dec. 15; and they will continue their monthly luncheon programs. In addition to being a nonprofit organization itself, the

Woman’s Clubhouse Association gives back to the community by supporting various other organizations. The Woman’s Clubhouse helps F.I.S.H. by housing their organization in the basement of the facility and asking users of the facility to bring in canned goods for F.I.S.H. Also, following the annual rummage sale, the Woman’s Clubhouse Association donated $500 to the Youth Service Bureau to purchase shoes to children at the beginning of the school year. “We’re trying to have a finger in lots of different areas, philanthropic, social, educational, and all of it circling around the restoration and preservation of the building,” Stouffer concluded. For more information about the Letters From Santa fundraiser, leave a message at 260-563-5339

dren can go outside to the park and play,” McDonald said. Organizations, clubs and businesses have begun using the facility for meetings and luncheons as well. “We want to stress that it’s not just a ladies’ place. So many people here in town will stop by and say, ‘Well I’ve always went to the park since I was a little kid and never knew what this building was’. They always thought it was just an off-limits building for women,” McDonald said. Stouffer continued, “The idea is that it truly belongs to the community. It truly is a community building for their use.” The restoration of the Historic Woman’s Clubhouse will be an ongoing project. The windows need restored and the exterior needs tuck pointing, but the next upcoming project will be the restoration of the back porch.

This year’s Veteran’s Day was celebrated in a special way as Goody’s parent company, Stage Stores Inc., donated $375,000 to Operation Homefront, a national

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 her OB/GYN Dr. Caitlin Ryser who evaluated and referred her to Dr. Sharon Rooney-Gandy. The swelling persisted and Kim developed additional swelling and breathing issues. Dr. Rooney-Gandy 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.

Kim Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma Survivor Kosciusko Community Hospital is directly or indirectly owned by a partnership that proudly includes physician owners, including certain members of the hospital’s medical staff.

organization that provides emergency financial assistance and other vital support services to the families of U.S. soldiers. The donation came from the sale of patriotic-themed, reusable shopping totes and was made possible in part by the outstanding support from local Goody’s customers who purchased the tote. The check was presented by Andy Hall, president and CEO of Stage Stores Inc., to Jim Knotts, CEO of Operation Homefront, at one of the company’s stores in San Antonio, Texas, where Operation Homefront has its headquarters. “In every hometown across our nation, we each know a family member or neighbor who is serving our country in the military. Our customers have been strong supporters of this initiative from the beginning, and we want to thank them for their generosity,” said Hall. “Operation Homefront is a vital asset to our military community and we’re proud to partner with them to support our veterans around the country.”

As a special tribute to veterans around the nation, the department store chain recognized two U.S. veterans, selected from nominations submitted by store associates around the country, to honor their military and community service. Robin Greer, a veteran of the U.S. Navy from Granbury, Texas, and Derek Mayes, a veteran of the U.S. Air Force from Indianapolis, were surprised with a trip to San Antonio to attend the presentation and enjoy a funfilled weekend with their families, courtesy of Stage Stores. O p e r a t i o n Homefront is a national non-profit organization that provides military families with aid in the form of grocery store gift cards, short-term transitional living at Operation Homefront villages, donated vehicles for those who can’t afford one, and physical and emotional support for wounded soldiers and their families. Founded in 2002, Operation Homefront has 24 chapters throughout the U.S. More about the organization and its services is found at

Thank you! Thank you to all of the voters who voted for me to be on the Wabash Common Council. I will do my very best to represent all the citizens in my districts. Thanks to all people who let me put my crazy yard signs on your property. To all were so kind to answer their doors and talk to me about our city, and take the literature on the candidates to read. A big thank you to all who attended my meet and greet, and to special friends Lou Krom, Marcella Palmer, and Lisa Kujawa who helped serve., the duo of Brother2Brother who played their instruments and sang for us. This was clearly a crazy election year here in our city, I bet it will go down in history for Wabash. My daily agenda was done one day at a time, and with the help of Chad Harris, and others who helped me walk, I say thank you to all . . To my husband, and family members,and church family, I say a big thank you for all your support , without you and your prayers I could not have done this.To all the people and family that encouraged me to run, a big thank you. When I first filed for the candidacy of city council I said to myself, if the good Lord wants me in this position he will guide me , and I trusted HIM . It was ok with me which ever way the election went. So here it is coming up on January for a New Year in Wabash. My prayer for our city council meetings , that we can work, with transparency for all, that the citizens will get involved in the process of the city council meetings. It is your city, so do not be afraid to attend and be part of the process. Do not leave it up to just a few, YOU are all important. Your voices are really important at this time in our County and with all of the problems going on around us. Again thanks to everyone for at least getting out to vote. The voting in our city election was a really low voter turn out. Only 27.17% voting. Where have all the citizens gone? Do not leave it just for a few to decide, you as American Citizens are truly needed here in our city, county, state and country to vote, it only takes just a few minutes to do this. It will make you feel proud and it is still a Freedom we have left.

that produce the foods that feed American consumers. $2,500 can help feed about 350 people in a rural community. Local farmer Lynn Blocher knows the importance of giving back to the community and chose the Fellowship Food Pantry when he was given the opportunity to direct a $2,500 donation to a nonprofit organization through America’s Farmers Grow Communities. The Fellowship Food Pantry serves the Greater North Manchester area and provides emergency food resources to local community members in need, Workman said. The funds from the Grow Communities donation were used to purchase necessary foods like meat and canned vegetables. For a rural community, $2,500 can go a long way in providing organizations such as the Fellowship Food Pantry with the supplies they need to keep their communities fed. Visit to learn more about America’s Farmers Grow Communities. The program is part of a broad commitment by the Monsanto Fund to invest in farm communities in order to highlight the important contributions farmers make every day to our society, and sign-ups for this year’s program are going on now. From now through Nov. 30, farmers can apply online at or call 1-877267-3332 to apply by phone.

The White Rocks Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation is helping less fortunate families in the area by offering warm smiles and hearty meals this holiday season. Through the Turkey Hunters Care program, the White Rocks Chapter is providing 150 turkey roasts to families in the area to help complete the traditional Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Volunteers with the White Rocks Chapter distributed 150 frozen domestic turkey roasts to Lighthouse Missions on Nov. 22 at 9 a.m. at Christ

United Methodist Church to help ensure families in the area will have a Thanksgiving to remember. “The Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are times for family, but they are also a time when many families are in need,” said NWTF CEO George Thornton. “Turkey Hunters Care is a great way for the NWTF’s committed volunteers to help these families during some of the most celebrated holidays of the year.” The NWTF is a nonprofit conservation organization that

works daily to further its mission of conserving the wild turkey and preserving our hunting heritage. Through dynamic partnerships with state, federal and provincial wildlife agencies, the NWTF and its members have helped restore wild turkey populations across the country, spending more than $331 million to conserve 15.9 million acres of habitat for all types of wildlife. For more information about the NWTF’s Turkey Hunters Care program, call 800-THENWTF or visit

North Manchester “Growing Project” joins efforts to alleviate hunger worldwide by Shaun Tilghman North Manchester NewsJournal

Manchester Church of the Brethren and Eel River Church of the Brethren recently collaborated to initiate a local “growing project”, which is a community-based endeavor that allows individuals to get involved in raising money for sustainable overseas food security programs through Foods Resource Bank (FRB). According to, the FRB mission is “growing lasting solutions to hunger.” The organization’s programs are intended to address the issues of hunger and poverty by supporting agricultural development in remote or poor regions of the world. “Foods Resource Bank’s intent is to link agriculture here in North America with agriculture where hunger and poverty exist, oftentimes in somewhat remote areas,” said Associate Pastor Jim Chinworth, of Manchester Church of the Brethren. “So, it’s not a food donation program at all; it’s to help persons in areas where food production is limited to increase that production and utilize the best agricultural practices to maintain production. “U.S. farmers and communities have the ability to support small farmers around the world, because less than $10 per person per year will often make an enormous difference in sustainable practices there. The annual use of land is committed by growing project farmers here in the U.S., and then the revenue from growing crops here becomes available to persons in those areas for tools, training, etc.” The FRB website states that 75 percent of the world’s 1 billion hungry people are farmers; therefore, agriculture offers a unique opportunity to millions of the poorest and hungriest people around our world to improve their lives. By engaging with farmers and their

communities we can work together to improve their health, livelihoods, and futures and make a lasting impact on hunger and poverty. When the Manchester-Eel River community members decided to take a proactive approach to eliminating worldwide hunger via the growing project, they committed themselves to utilizing available resources in order to raise money for FRB. FRB has continued to grow over its 10year existence, reportedly raising $3.6 million last year and implementing 55 programs in 32 countries. Growing projects in 23 states across the U.S. helped provide assistance to more than 100,000 families around the world in 2010. “[FRB has] a partnership with 15 humanitarian organizations,” Chinworth explained, “and our Brethren churches connect with FRB through what’s called the Global Food Crisis Fund (GFCF), which is our denominational equivalent, that addresses hunger issues around the world.” “To get projects off the ground, grants can be secured,” he continued. “The John Deere Foundation generously supports FRB, and is generally willing to give some upfront money to get a project started. The GFCF will give a grant for the first two years to help keep the project going. Locally, we are in contact with Midwest Poultry Service, who has open acres and will possi-

bly provide some money from renting that land out. “We also have local farmers that designated acres to go toward this project. One of them contacted [POET Biorefining North Manchester], who also has open ground, but because of the heavy rains this year not all of that land was available. There was also some seed and fertilizer donated, from Andersons Farm Center in particular, for this year’s project. ”Farmers plant crops on the designated land just as they normally would, but it’s not until the crops are harvested and sold that the amount to be donated to FRB can be determined. “Little, if anything, changes for these people actually working the ground, except that they make the very generous donation of their equipment and time,” said Norman Braksick, original executive director of FRB and current volunteer development specialist for Michigan and Indiana, “many of their inputs are donated. Non-farm people and other businesses raise or give cash to cover costs not donated – in short, everyone gives a gift they can give.” “Foods Resource Bank has a covenant with its members, major donors, and growing projects that the projects’ income will be used to help small farmers overseas,” Braksick continued, “often women and children, to grow their own food, with extra to share, barter, or sell to purchase

household necessities and send all their children to school.” The ManchesterEel River group has decided to set aside proceeds from a small portion of the acreage, not covered by FRB-related scholarships, for the local food pantry, Chinworth said. “This is our first year, so it’s still a bit of a trial,” he added. “We won’t know for a while how much will be available from this initial effort, but once we do, the group will decide which FRB overseas food security program to support. Midwest Poultry Services, Eel River Church of the Brethren, the John Deere Foundation, and the GFCF provided nearly enough funds for all of the upfront costs, so we’ll be able to set aside funds from this year to be start-up for next year, in addition to supporting a program somewhere (likely in Central America). We already have a relationship with a church in Nicaragua, so there is already some connection with Central America for us here in North Manchester.” Because FRB’s programs overseas are implemented by FRB’s member denominations and the denominations’ in-country partners, FRB does not need to duplicate expensive infrastructure, so growing project donations can be used to supply seeds, tools, irrigation solutions, and pay for local people to give training on developing secure food productions practices.

According to the FRB website, hunger is often a seasonal issue, as farmers run out of last year’s food before the current year’s harvest. If provided with basic inputs and training on sustainable farming techniques, like composting and proper grain storage, farmers can increase their harvest and therefore their food security. “Right now, this is a joint effort between Manchester Church of the Brethren and Eel River Church of the Brethren,” Chinworth concluded, “but we would be glad to be in contact with other faith communities, local agricultural businesspeople or farmers. We’re glad to take in new partners from other churches, or farmers who might see the benefit of supporting sustainable agriculture around the world. We had about 16

meeting. Joyce suggested that members begin thinking about what the county could do to honor the upcoming 100th anniversary of IEHA. A list of ideas will be made of club members’ suggestions about what could be done to participate in this celebration. She is hoping that a county project can be arranged. Riley Hospital expressed their appreciation for all the things that have been given to help the patients there. They are now allowing anyone making puppy pillows to also put the faces on the pillows, but they do insist that the faces be painted from their pattern. The pattern is available in the extension office. The spring district meeting will be March 29 in Fulton County. The fall District meeting will be Sept. 6, 2012, in Grant County. IEHA has raised $25,000 for the Cancer Endowment Fund. Plans are underway to raise the next $25,000. Joyce reported that some counties are doing projects to collect money for this cause. Jane Long and Mary Ruth Mendenhall were appointed to meet and find some ideas

for fundraising and report at the January council meeting. Home and Family Conference will be at Purdue next June. Every club member is encouraged to make a 9” X 9” quilt block using a pattern of her choice. The block is to be finished with a back (like a mini wall hanging) and signed on the back with the club member’s name. The blocks will be turned in at conference and sold at auction. Money from the sale of these blocks will be used to fund the 100th anniversary celebration. The quilt blocks will replace the gift basket silent auction. Joyce suggested that it is not too soon for the clubs to be working on their committee assignments for the year. Liberty Bells reported that the speaker for the P r e s i d e n t ’ s Luncheon/Achieve ment Day has been secured. The nominating committee will be looking for candidates for vice president, treasurer and assistant treasurer for next year. Cultural Arts will feature three categories of entries this year: Quilts, Needlework and Arts and Crafts. Only one

entry will go on to the conference at Purdue from the county. Cindy Beard reported on the Craft Bazaar/Bake Sale that was held on Oct. 22. There were more venders this year. Next year, venders will be asked to list what they will be selling on their applications for space. The application and table money will be sent to the extension office. The room has been reserved for next year. Mary Ruth Mendenhall made a motion to reimburse Cindy for the deposit she made. Ruth Dyson seconded the motion. The motion carried. Reports and comments from those in attendance were all positive. K o u n t r y Kaleidoscope chairs the bazaar each year and is recognized for doing an outstanding job. In other business, there was a discussion about whether to continue or discontinue involvement in the Homemaker’s Fashion Show, Homemaker’s Night at the Fair and the Open Class exhibits at the 4-H Fair. This had been discussed at the September council meeting and was to have been presented to the clubs

They can use resources that Teresa will make available to the clubs. Club presidents are to report their club’s thoughts on this at the January meeting. - $500 has been received from the United Fund for the First Reader program to buy books. Joyce expressed an interest in visiting each club for one of their meetings if a convenient time can be arranged. The next meeting will be Jan. 10 at the Farm Bureau Insurance Building.

Fouts family expresses displeasure with cemetery upkeep Dear editor, We would like to express our surprise and hurt we experienced when we made our weekly visit to Friends Cemetery to clean the stones of our son, daughter-inlaw and grandson,

and we found every flower and decoration had been removed from their graves, as well as every grave in the cemetery. After investigating, we noticed a large sign that stated, “Everything will be

removed that is not on the stone or base”. We can understand removing flowers from the ground for fall cleaning, but everything was removed. We had vases attached to the stones so we could

keep flowers on them year-round. We also had a saddle of flowers attached to the stone for the same reason. When we purchased a lot in the cemetery, except for an occasional sign asking that ground flowers be removed for mowing, we never received any restriction notices. Therefore, we thought we could decorate with vases and saddles as we wanted. As far as cemetery upkeep goes, Friends Cemetery is doing a very poor job. The mowing crew mows between the graves, but never trims. All during spring and summer, we had to go every week and trim around our loved ones’ stones and sweep off the dead grass. The biggest eyesore in the cemetery is the huge cement block trash bin. It is uncovered and never emptied. Therefore, trash blows everywhere. We went with our friend to another

cemetery in Wabash to decorate her husband’s grave. There were flowers on all the stones and wreaths stuck in the ground around the stones. The cemetery was very neat and

cared for. It makes us sad to think of all the people who have loved ones at Friends Cemetery. We are all denied the right to have our loved ones in a resting place where we can visit, decorate

and honor their lives. We will not be buried in Friends Cemetery, but in a place where our loved ones can put flowers on our graves if they so desire. Dean and Marie Fouts

Community State Bank Economist: Feed costs put the robbed in Twelve Mile squeeze on dairy margins

Michael J. Ridenour On Nov. 2, at approximately 2:01 p.m., officers from the Indiana State Police and the Cass County Sheriff ’s Department responded to a 911 phone call, which was hung up before the caller spoke with dispatchers, at the Community State Bank, 8070 E. SR 16, Twelve Mile. When

officers arrived, they found the bank had been robbed, and the suspect had already exited the bank. A subsequent search of the area did not reveal the suspect. Preliminary investigation by Indiana State Police Detective Brian Dormer revealed that a person of medium build entered the bank wearing a Halloween type mask, with long synthetic hair protruding from the back of the mask. The person was armed with what appeared to be a chrome or silver handgun and demanded money from a teller. The teller complied with the request, and the person exited a rear door

of the bank and fled on foot. An undetermined amount of United States currency was taken in the robbery. There were three employees inside the bank during the robbery. They were not injured. An overnight investigation by detectives from the Indiana State Police and Cass County Sheriff ’s Department led officers to Michael J. Ridenour, 65, 5800 N. SR 25, rural Logansport. During two separate searches of Ridenour’s property, witness statements, and evidence gleaned from the bank surveillance video, officers developed probable cause to arrest Ridenour. He

was arrested on Nov. 3 and incarcerated in the Cass County Jail on felony charges for robbery, criminal confinement, and theft. He also faces a misdemeanor count of pointing a firearm. His bond is set at $25,000. This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with any information about this crime is encouraged to contact Indiana State Police Detective Brian Dormer by calling 1800-382-0689. Assisting in the investigation were officers from the Miami County Sheriff ’s Department and conservation officers from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.

Grant County man arrested for trying to sicken wife

Recently, a month long criminal investigation by Indiana State Police Detective Mike Tarrh resulted in the arrest of Jon Krum, 41, Van Buren. Krum was arrested at his home when Grant County Sheriff ’s deputies served him with a Grant Superior Court I arrest warrant. The warrant

alleged a class B felony charge of attempted aggravated battery. Krum was incarcerated in the Grant County Jail with a $20,000 bond. Tarrh started his investigation at the request of internal affairs officers at the Miami Correctional Facility. Allegedly Krum, a former cor-

Mayretha Weinley, 76 Member St. Michael’s Lutheran Church May 27, 1935 – Nov. 17, 2011

Mayretha C. Weinley, 76 North Manchester, formerly of Huntington and Aboite Township, passed away at 1:05 a.m. on Nov. 17 at the Peabody Retirement Community, North Manchester. She was born on May 27, 1935, in Huntington County, to Archie N. and Fairy (Wolf) Haney. She married Kenneth L. Weinley on June 14, 1959; he preceded her in death on Nov. 8, 1992. Mrs. Winley was a homemaker and known as a wonderful cook, especially her pies. She was a member of the St. Michael’s Lutheran Church of Fort Wayne. She is survived by a sister, Marilyn Forbes of North Manchester, and several nieces and nephews. Along with her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by three brothers, Leon Haney, Douglas Haney and Donald Haney. Funeral services were held Nov. 21 at Myers Funeral Home Huntington Chapel, 2901 Guilford St., Huntington. Chaplain Sue Babovec officiated. Interment was at the Gardens of Memory Cemetery, Marion. Preferred memorial contributions are to The Caring Circle of Peabody Retirement Community or to Visiting Nurse and Hospice Home both in care of Myers Funeral Home, 2901 Guilford Street, Huntington, IN 46750.

rectional officer at the facility, had asked another staff member to provide him with prescription medication so Krum could surreptitiously give it to his wife, to make her ill. Tarrh’s investigation revealed that Krum had on four separate occasions secretly put weed killer, rubbing alcohol, anti-freeze and prescription medication into soft drinks that his wife had been consuming. Krum’s wife discarded the drinks before becom-

Jon Krum ing ill from its contents. Krum is no longer employed at the Miami Correctional Facility.

With high forage costs and grain prices threatening profit margins for dairy producers, a Purdue Extension agricultural economist says it’s important to keep an eye on the bottom line. The preliminary U.S. all-milk price for October 2011 was estimated at $19.90 per hundredweight, which is a decrease from September but up about $1.40 from October of 2010. Despite the strong prices, soaring feed costs still threaten dairy producers’ profits. “The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s milk-tofeed price ratio for October 2011 was estimated at 1.79, down from a revised 1.84 in September 2011,” Nicole Olynk said. “Despite higher milk prices in 2011, rising feed costs have caused the decline in the milk-to-feed price ratio from 2.40 in October of last year.” Part of the challenge for dairies has been corn and soybean prices. But October soybean and corn prices were

down from September, averaging $5.92 per bushel for corn and $11.90 per bushel for soybeans. Another major factor in dairy feed ration costs has been rapidly rising prices of hay and other forages, Olynk said. In August baled hay prices averaged $191 per ton, up from $189 in July and a major increase from the $118 per ton prices in August 2010. Prices have continued to rise into the fall and averaged $203 per ton for alfalfa in October. “Dairy farms better able to control their own feed production specifically forage production - may be best positioned to survive the feed prices,” she said. While cheese prices have been volatile in 2011, butter and other dairy products have helped producers maintain profit margins. Butter prices were extremely strong through the summer but recently have softened slightly. Other components, such as dry whey and nonfat dry milk, have seen significant price increases this year.

Nonfat dry milk prices are up 25 percent, while whey prices have risen by 65 percent. In the coming year, Olynk said there are reasons for producers to be both optimistic and cautious. Milk production is expected to increase by about 1.4 percent per cow, which means a higher milk supply, but it also can mean lower prices. Another area dairy producers should keep an eye on is farm policy. There have been several proposals for dairy pricing reform in Congress, which Olynk said have generated much discussion about supply management, margin protection and federal order reform. “Dairy will be an important topic in the U.S. Congress during the Farm Bill debate, or sooner,” Olynk said. “Significant changes to dairy policies are possible, if not likely.”

investigated an unusual accident on Nov. 13 around 4 p.m. involving a 10-yearold girl who sustained a broken leg when a dead tree fell on her at the Mississinewa Reservoir. Brooke Price of LaPorte was hiking with her family on the Blue Heron Trail observing for wildlife and walking her dogs when a strong gust of wind blew down a portion of a dead tree onto her breaking her right leg. Brooke’s father, Jeffrey Price, was able to remove the tree from her leg and then go for help while her mother, Heather Price, and her brother comforted her until emergency personnel found her. Brooke was initially complaining

of back pain and right leg and foot pain. She was not bleeding and was conscious and alert. Emergency responders arrived and prepared Brooke for transport by the Lutheran Air Helicopter to Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne. A landing zone was set up at the beach parking lot at the reservoir for the helicopter and Brooke was subsequently air lifted to the hospital. Brooke’s broken leg was successfully repaired. Other emergency personnel on the scene included: Miami County Sheriff ’s Department, Dukes Hospital Ambulance and Mississinewa Reservoir Security.

ISFA Pageant Director recognizes organizers of recent pageant Dear editor, Wabash has bragging rights again! Our own Hannah Klare was chosen as the 2012 Indiana State Festivals Queen. Hannah did such an amazing job representing Wabash. Her shirt for the Festival Spirit Competition said “Herb Festival”, but

she truly represents every festival in Wabash County. She is so excited to travel the state next summer to represent the ISFA, but we can expect to see her all over Wabash County at various festivals and events. Everyone at the ISFA Fall Convention sees me as the director of

the pageant, but I am just a part of an awesome and hard-working team. I have been so blessed to be able to work side-by-side with my friend, Bev Vanderpool. Bev puts together our picture board, does the choreography for our opening dance number and she works with the con-

testants on stage in rehearsal. I have so many things to get done during the day and I know I can go take care of them and everything will run smoothly with Bev in charge. There is no way I could do this without her. She is my right arm on pageant day.

WABASH HIGH SCHOOL recently concluded their food drive for F.I.S.H., and reported that it was one of the most successful years to date. On Nov. 18, students and faculty presented a check for $1,000 and a mountain of food to Janet Shoue, F.I.S.H. Pictured are: Hannah Strickler, third place donor; Miss Atchison and Mr. Hipskind, student council sponsors; Brittney Stone, student body president; Michael Noland, second place donor; Mr. Carrillo, whose Spanish III class donated the most items; Kyle Wieland, assistant principal; Janet Shoe, F.I.S.H.; and Cutter Koehler, first place donor.

As in past years, the Indiana State Festivals Pageant has other Wabash ties. Nicole Pudis Chase was our Mistress of Ceremonies again this year and, of course, did an awesome job. Ron Pressler, from Wabash, came again to video the pageant. This gives the contestants an opportunity to have a special remembrance of their participation. Brenda Alexander, Frankton Heritage Days and a member of the ISFA Board, and Erika Tishner, 2008 ISFA Queen, assist with the pageant also. Eagledale Florist of Indianapolis provided the queen and court bouquets. Snips Salon and Spa from Indianapolis pampered the contestants and some of our committee members by doing their hair and makeup. Lillians Bridal and Prom Boutique of Peru donated the beautiful crown that Hannah will have the privilege of wearing. Hannah’s court consists of Molly

Chidester, Spencer County Fair, first runner-up; Brittney Gilman, Little Italy Festival, second runner-up; Payton Cole, Riley Festival, third runner-up; and Destynne Moore, Circus City Festival, fourth runner-up. A special thank you to The Paper of Wabash County for taking on the task, and doing a wonderful job, of producing our pageant program again this year. Thank you to Kim Pinkerton and the Wabash County Chamber of Commerce for allowing me to make copies in their office. Once again, Wabash was represented well at

the pageant. Along with Bev and her local pageant co-director, Beth Winer, there were members of Hannah’s family, representatives of the Roann Covered Bridge Festival and Lagro Good Ole Days, and several other people from Wabash. This says a lot about the people from Wabash and the support we give each other. I hope Hannah rests up this winter because she is going to have a very busy summer. The ISFA Scholarship Pageant is definitely a team effort and what a great team it is. Chris Benson ISFA Pageant Director

Peru resident recounts recent political event Dear editor, As you know, the Senate has failed to pass a budget resolution for three years running. Now they

sentatives from tea party groups across the country, including Indiana met in the Russell Senate Office building to formally

The Path to Fast Recovery

like the only thing Washington wants to hear is excuses. The Democrats who run the Senate Rules Committee were so afraid of the tea party plan to balance the federal budget that they ordered committee staff to remove the microphones we had set up for the event while Capitol Police blocked the doors of our hearing room, which had been reserved by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) specifically for this event more than two weeks ago. At the same time, a “suspicious package” was reported in the room next door and all visitors and staff were barred from the area. Although Senator Lee courageously stood up for us, he ultimately determined that the hearing should proceed without further interruption or harassment. For that reason we moved to another location off the Capitol grounds where our commission of 12 volunteer tea party activists presented their recommenda-

tions to a fired-up crowd. Senator Lee was also joined there by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Reps. Joe Walsh (R-IL), Steve King (R-IA), Mike Pence (R-IN), Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) and Paul Broun (R-GA). Rep. Broun received a standing ovation when he offered to help draft and sponsor legislation that could eventually allow our recommended cuts to become law. Unfortunately, the unexpected location change disrupted live coverage of our hearing on CSPAN, but the events continued. It is this kind of bul-

lying by the Democrat party that overshadows and makes pale anything conservatives or Republicans have been accused of in trying to subvert or corrupt American freedoms and individual rights. How can people like Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi pretend to be sincere when blatant tactics like this are used? It’s time for individual citizens to band together, organize, and strengthen the values the constitution originally prescribed. Patrick Cloward Peru

McLaughlin will be extending his baseball career for anoth-

er four years, and he won’t be doing it too far from home.

The Manchester High School senior signed to play with

Division I Indiana University-Purdue University at Fort Wayne beginning in the 2012-13 academic year after accepting a full-tuition offer from the Mastodons. “After I took a visit, and I saw where I’d be staying and actually saw the campus for the first time, it really grew on me a lot,” McLaughlin said. “I really liked the offer and the coaches. They have a great staff and are nice guys. And it seemed like they took a special interest in me and liked me as a player and a person. It just felt right when I was walking through campus.” Manchester High School baseball coach Jack Rupley is thrilled for McLaughlin and feels he will do well at IPFW. “It’s good for him.

I hope IPFW is a good fit. I think it will be,” Rupley said. “He’s worked hard, has good ability and is a joy to be around. I now how hard he’s worked to hopefully attain something like this.” Both McLaughin and Rupley know how important it is to make the college decision early in his senior season. “I know I’ll still have to perform well, but I know I won’t have that extra pressure on me,” McLaughlin said. “It’s nice to have a little bit of a load off his shoulders,” Rupley agreed. “It’s good to have it done and over with. Now he can go play basketball and enjoy that, and when baseball rolls around, he won’t have that on his back, carrying that decision he has to make.”

McLaughlin was named Honorable Mention All-State last season as a junior, and has been an All Three Rivers Conference team member all three years of high school, making the first team as a pitcher his freshman year and as an outfielder last season. During his sophomore year, he was on the second team as a pitcher. Last season, McLaughlin led the Squires from the plate, hitting .436 (3478) with 26 RBI and one home run. From the mound, he was 65 with a 3.30 earned run average. In 63 2/3 innings, he gave up 60 hits, striking out 98 and walking 28. He has a career pitching record of 19-7 with a 2.17 ERA with 242 strikeouts.

Richvalley Extension Homemakers recently met President Joyce Brewer welcomed everyone to the meeting of the Richvalley E x t e n s i o n Homemakers and thanked Pam Simons for hosting the meeting in her lovely home; her husband, Doug, graciously parked vehicles. They enjoyed a light meal. Joyce read the thought for the month: “It may be true that life begins at 40, but by then everything begins to wear out, or spread out.” Members stood to do the pledge to the flags. Rita Griffith led the American, Angie Baer led the Christian and Jane Long led the Homemaker’s Creed. Inspirations were by Bonita Kirtlan. She read from an old devotional book about joy. Secretary Jane Long called the roll call (What are your family traditions?) with 10 members and two associate members present. Patty Sausaman collected the reading points. Treasurer Ruth Dyson read her report. She told what the club made for the craft bazaar. Beverly Campbell donated the items for Spanish hot dogs and sloppy joes. Pam Simons donated the material and making of the beautiful aprons. Cards were sent: Connie Hall, Charlie Zinn and Jayne Rice by Bonita Kirtlan. Bonita led the song of the month, “When Johnny Comes Marching Home”, which is very appropriate because of the troops coming home from Iraq. Happy Birthday was sung to Beverly Campbell and Happy Anniversary was sung to Sue and Bob Mitting. Sheila Sluss, Rita Griffith and AngieBaer are working on county program books. Joyce reported on the recent council meeting, and said the club needs ideas on fundraising.

The dates for applying to Ruth B. Sayer and the county scholarships are coming up soon. The date for The Homemakers’ Conference is June 1315, 2012. Cindy Beard that the bazaar resulted in good responses by vendors and clubs. Next year’s bazaar will be on Sept. 22, 2012. Nine-inch square quilt blocks are needed for the 100th anniversary in 2013. It was decided not to sponsor the Ladies Night at the fair and the fashion revue. The club will have an open adult show and the fashion show. Joyce thanked the helpers with Kid-o-Rama, Phylliss Ulshafer,

Patty Sausaman, Ruth Dyson, Jane Long and herself. The 4-H Hog Roast went well. The Wrap-It-Up meeting (at the Miami County Community Building) went well. The club had the scarf vendor there and giftwrapping, candy making, creating gift boxes and soup and slow-cooked meals. The club enjoyed all the food items. Joyce decided to continue the participation in the blood drive with Ruth Dyson doing it in December and Richvalley doing it in January. Joyce reported that the club needs volunteers and donations for Kid’s Christmas at the Honeywell Center.

It was decided to donate $50 from the club for supplies. Patty Sausaman and Sheila Sluss were appointed to the nominating committee for the club, they need a president and vice president. Health And Safety was by Beverly Badgett. She discussed ‘Chilling out about the holidays’ and vaccines that should be kept up-todate. The lesson was next by Joyce Brewer on “Passion for Fashion”. She brought hats and scarves for each member to model for the years of 1930’s to the present. Beverly Campbell gave invitations for the

December brunch at the Civic Center in Peru. She reminded members to bring an item for the young ladies in a cottage at White’s. The meeting closed with the ‘Collect’ recited by everyone. As they left, Hostess Pam gave them a hug and a gift bag to take home. Doug brought cars to members as they exited the home.

Shannon shares thoughts on cross country Dear editor, Nearly all Hoosiers know the story of how the basketball team from Milan upset the mighty back in the 1950’s. Their story of grit and determination is the stuff of inspiration. While not quite the caliber of that memorable basketball game, some amazing things have happened with the Northfield Cross Country team’s recent history. To those familiar with class sports, cross country is not of that mold. All four contests, sectional, regional, semi-state, and state, are classless sporting events, which makes their achievement all the more remarkable. Northfield has competed against nationally ranked schools and has done well. In 2009, Northfield’s boys’ team was one of only five small

schools in the state to make it as a team to semi-state. Braving cold, wind, rain and snow, running in shorts and sleeveless jerseys, our kids placed ninth. 2010 saw a return to that high level of competition as Northfield was the lone 1A competitor in the state against some very tough competition from some very large schools. Placing 17th out of 20 teams at semi-state is, in itself, an achievement. This year, both boys and girls earned the right to compete at semistate with Jenna Halderman progressing to state. The recent newspaper articles tell the story. As Coach Leming would say, “Who does that?” Some people, ignorant of the requirements, fail to even recognize it as a sport. Perhaps more

than most other sports, a runner has go to know his/her body very well. It’s difficult to figure out how fast to start a race so as to have the sheer determination to run up “Agony Hill” (there’s a reason for that name) and still have enough “gas” at the end of three miles for that final sprint in hopes of passing one more runner. With cross country as both a team and individual sport, a great deal of focus, stamina and pure determination is required to be able to peak at just the right time of the season. I have seen runners turn in amazing times of three miles in less than 15 minutes. I have also seen the slower runners, who with sheer determination finish three miles in 45 minutes with teammates running alongside offering encouragement,

“C’mon, you’re almost there!” I admire both. What’s clear is that for the love of running, great accomplishments in character and strength are made. Cross country participants/fans take it all “in stride”. Go to any cross country meet and you will see a plethora of shirts among sometimes thousands of spectators with witty sayings, reminding us of the challenging, but amazing sport of cross country: “Some of the world’s greatest feats were accomplished by people not smart enough to know they were impossible.”, “If I had know then what I know now, I would have started

with a smaller country.”, “The pride you gain is worth the pain.”, and “Your punishment is my sport.” It’s a bittersweet ending after 12 years of cross country. We will miss it. So, congratulations to the Northfield teams, and a big thank you to Coaches Leming, Andrews, “Er” and Dale. We had a great run. Susan Shannon Wabash

Farm Service Agency announces 2012 crop program enrollment dates

As required in the 2008 Farm Bill, there are no 2012 advance direct payments for the Direct and CounterCyclical Program (DCP) and the Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE). Enrollment for 2012 DCP and ACRE will begin on Jan. 23, 2012. The beginning enrollment date has been moved back to Jan. 23, 2012, for 2012 DCP and ACRE in order to allow County Office employees time to begin signup of 2010 Supplemental Revenue Assistance Program (SURE) and allow County Office employees time to finalize supplemental revenue assistance programs. The enrollment deadline for 2012 DCP and ACRE elections is June 1, 2012. Enrollment for 2010 crop losses under the SURE program will begin Nov. 14 and end June 1, 2012. The SURE Program provides benefits for crop losses due to natural disasters that occurred in the 2010 crop year. This program is revenuebased, which accounts for losses in production quantity and quality, as well as price. A producer’s SURE operation includes all acres of all crops in all counties (and states). To

be eligible, a producer must have at least part of his or her “farm” located within a Secretarial declared county, a contiguous county, or must have suffered at least a 50 percent loss of actual production on the farm. To be eligible for payment, a producer must have suffered at least a 10 percent loss of production on at least one crop of economic significance in a declared or contiguous county. SURE provides assistance in an amount equal to 60 percent of the difference between the SURE guarantee and a producer’s total revenue. The producer’s guarantee fluctuates depending on the amount and level of crop insurance and NAP coverage a producer carries. For additional information about the SURE guarantee and revenue calculations, see the web link: and click on “ D i s a s t e r A s s i s t a n c e Programs.” This program does have a risk management purchase requirement. To receive benefits, all crops of economic significance must have been covered by a multiple peril crop insurance policy or Non-Insured Crop Disaster A s s i s t a n c e

Program (NAP). Producers should visit their local county office to see if they qualify for SURE payments. The Non-Insured Crop Disaster A s s i s t a n c e Program (NAP) provides financial assistance to producers of noninsurable crops when low yields, loss of inventory, or prevented planting occurs due to natural disasters. This program is very similar to crop insurance, but is for most commercially produced crops for which multi-peril crop insurance is not available. Eligible producers must apply for coverage of noninsurable crops using Form CCC471, “Application for Coverage,” and pay the applicable service fees at their local FSA office. The applica-

Family Video collects movies for soldiers Company-wide initiative hopes to deliver 1 million movies to troops overseas. by Danielle Smith DSmith

Family Videoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 755 stores, which are located in 21 different states, are teaming up for Operation: Entertain the Troops. This is a companywide initiative in


which stores are collecting DVDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to ship to the deployed troops in Afghanistan and other countries. By the end of November, the company hopes to have collected 1 million movies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Within the last year or so, a few stores had people come to them with the idea and they had done it in select stores and had really good success with it,â&#x20AC;? said Joel Zekaley, district

manager with Family Video. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So then the company decided that, for the month of November, with the holidays coming, to get a million movies to the troops overseas in Afghanistan and other countries would be a great idea and a great gift to them for the holidays.â&#x20AC;? Already, a large supply of DVD movies has been in heavy rotation at numerous U.S. military bases

throughout Iraq and Afghanistan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They set up their own video store on some bases and the soldiers can go in and get two videos at a time. They can go in and check them out and return them and get two more,â&#x20AC;? Zekaley said. Movies are collected and distributed by Family Video personnel to local military bases for transport overseas.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The district managers and managers have gotten in touch with different people in the military. One of my other stores is in Plymouth so we have a lady up there thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to get them all together and make sure they get overseas,â&#x20AC;? Zekaley said. In order to reach their million movie goal, each store must receive 1,300 DVDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The Wabash location has currently received approximately 500 movies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing alright,â&#x20AC;? said Wabash manager Joe Philippsen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still a little behind where we want to be, but hopefully weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a surge of people bringing them who just want to give back for the holidays. It has been a good turnout so far, everyone has really helped us contribute a lot.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some stores are doing better than others, we still need a lot of help,â&#x20AC;? Zekaley said. Those who wish to help out with Operation: Entertain the Troops have two options. They may donate DVDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s from their own collections or purchase movies for $2. All participants have the opportunity to add a personal touch to their donation with a handwritten note for the troops to read. Family Video has a history of being involved with philanthropic events throughout the country, all year long. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each store gives our 20 turkeys at Thanksgiving and 20 at Christmas to families in need. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always done since weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been open in 1978. The managerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s donate their time to go out and deliver the turkeys,â&#x20AC;? Zekaley said. The Wabash location worked alongside the Dallas Winchester Senior Center last year for this project.

Local youth participate in Great American Smoke-Out Day

Students of the VOICE organization from Wabash High School and M a n c h e s t e r Intermediate School took their stand and held anti-tobacco displays at their schools. VOICE is a youth empowerment organization that speaks out against the way the tobacco companies market to youth. Wabash High School students displayed a body image that represents the toll of continued tobacco use. At

M a n c h e s t e r Intermediate, the sixth-graders display 27 pairs of shoes. This represents the 27 deaths in Indiana every day from tobacco usage. The American Cancer Society is marking the 36th Great American Smoke-out by encouraging smokers to use the date to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and quit smoking that day. Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of dis-

ease and premature death in the US. VOICE is a Wabash County Tobacco Free Coalition program. VOICE is always looking for additional members or adult ally’s to speak out against tobacco companies’ efforts to influence youth to start using tobacco. For any interest or questions, please feel free to call 260-2742920.
