MS Wabash, LLC project completes financing

The MS Wabash, LLC project completed financing and broke escrow on Nov. 3. The $15.5 million dollar project is now ready to complete the planning process and to begin construction. Bill Konyha, president and CEO of the E c o n o m i c Development Group of Wabash County, Inc. (EDG) said, “The completed financing included $1,000,000 in Tax Increment Financing (TIF) for the Wabash Business Complex. As the project broke escrow, the entire $1,000,000 was wired into the account established by Meredith Brown, clerk-treasurer of the City of Wabash. It will pay some of the costs of completing infrastructure in the park. The $142,000 annual enhancement fee was also wired into the account and it may be used to pay normal operating costs of the city. It represents an immediate savings to the taxpayers of the city.” EDG asked Mainstreet Capital and Platinum Health Care to securitize the lease to grant additional levels of commitment and safety to the project. “They complied and funded five years of interest payments in reserve accounts,” said Konyha. “This is going to be a great project for Wabash”, said Mayor Bob Vanlandingham, “It is a large invest-

Local man creates football trivia game American Football Hero will hit Spiece’s shelves just in time for holiday shopping. by Danielle Smith DSmith

On 11-11-11, a new board game, created by Wabash resident Jamie Jessee, will hit the shelves. American Football Hero, a game that combines the rules and regulations of football with football history, began as an idea at the dining room table of the Jessee home. “While playing a popular trivia game, I became bored and bragged that I could create a better game,” Jessee said. “My family challenged me to do that and American Football Hero was the result.” The football theme for the game emerged as the result of the Jessee family’s shared interest in football and good timing. “It happened to be around NFL pre-season and the game I chose to do was on football since I was dying for football to start,” he recalls. The game consists of a 48” x 24” corrugated plastic board that mimics an actual football field, a 12-

sided die, a 4-sided die, several small playing pieces and five decks of cards. Four of the decks of cards represent “downs” (first down, second down, etc.), and the fifth deck represents a fumble. As the player on offense goes through their turn, they are read trivia questions from the cards by the opposing team. If they answer the question correctly, they have a chance to roll the 12-sided die to determine how many yards are gained or whether they fumble or the play is intercepted. The questions on the cards become more difficult as a player goes through the downs. All fourth down questions are Super Bowl trivia questions. If a player draws a fumble card on one of their downs or if the 12-sided die lands on fumble, they draw a card from the fumble deck to determine if they are able to recover the ball. All fumble questions are officiating questions. Jessee has a list of suppliers that manufacture various parts of the game for him. “I wanted to keep a lot of them in town to keep money in town,” he said. Unfortunately, he

JAMIE JESSEE, Wabash, and his family began working on American Football Hero, a football trivia board game, in 2008. The game is now available for purchase at his website, and will launch at our local Spiece store on 11-11-11. (photo by Danielle Smith) was unable to do that in some areas. Various pieces of the game are made in Los Angeles, Calif., the board is made in Birmingham, Ala., and the boxes are made in Marion. American Football Hero is the creation of not only Jessee, but various other members of his family. “I had lots of input from my wife, Nancy, and my daughters, Heather and Maranda, some of it useful and some just plain frustrating!”

had lost his job as the result of an injury and began attending Ivy Tech Community College. He earned his associate’s degree and continued on at Indiana University Kokomo, pursuing a bachelor’s degree in liberal arts with a psychology concentration. “I did a couple of Powerpoint presentations on the game and the whole classroom wanted to buy them then, but I didn’t have it ready yet. That was last spring,” he said.

“Even my professor said he knew I had something.” American Football Hero is designed for ages 12 and up. Jessee will have, available for purchase, the standard size game or a 4’ x 8’ “Party Size” board. The game is currently available at www.AmericanFootb It will launch, locally, at Spiece on 11-11-11, just in time for holiday shopping, and would make a great gift for any football fan.

AFTER MORE THAN 30 YEARS OF SERVICE, Bruce Ingraham will retire from his position as president of Beacon Credit Union on Aug. 1, 2012. When Ingraham’s tenure began, Beacon had $38 million in total assets. Today, that number has grown to $900 million. (photo by Brent Swan)

Beacon Credit Union President Bruce Ingraham has announced that he will retire effective Aug. 1, 2012. In the past 32 years under Ingraham’s leadership, Beacon Credit Union has overseen sweeping changes and unprecedented growth. When Ingraham began his tenure as president in 1981, Beacon was known as Wabash County Farm Bureau Credit Union; it had $38 million in total assets and served only Wabash County. Today, Beacon Credit Union serves over 45,000 member-owners and has over $750 million on deposit, over $625 million in

member loans and $900 million in total assets. Staying true to the credit union’s mission of “providing fair and competitive financial products and services responsive to the needs of its members” has been Ingraham’s philosophy throughout his career, and this philosophy has been instrumental in Beacon’s growth throughout the years. As the leading Agricultural Lending Credit Union in the nation, the original mission of serving farming families remains its foundation by currently supplying over $400 million in agricultural related loans.

Ingraham’s success and hard work have been acknowledged and awarded both locally and statewide. In 1988, then Indiana Governor Orr awarded him the Sagamore of Wabash. Ingraham was cited with a P r o f e s s i o n a l Achievement Award form the Credit Union League in 2007 and was inducted into its Hall of Fame in 2008. Most recently, he received the Distinguished Citizen Award 2009 from the Wabash County Chamber of Commerce. The opportunity to represent Beacon in these organizations (continued on page 6)

Soil and Water Conservation District welcomes Susi Stephan as executive director

Susi Stephan

The executive director works under the direction of a board of five supervisors, Christian Rosen, Brian Ranck , Kevin Cordes, Bobby Hettmansperger and Rob Shellhamer, and alongside Joe Updike, who is with Natural Resources Conservation Services (NRCS). There were 42 applicants for the position that Stephan was selected for. The applicants were narrowed down to three by Penny Collins, who had formerly held the position. Those three individuals went through an extensive personal interview with the board and Updike. Stephan was born and raised in North Manchester, and has always been involved in the agricultural field. “I went to Purdue for four years and I have a degree in animal science,” Stephan said. “After college, I

Susi Stephan, North Manchester, recently joined the Wabash County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) as executive director. Wabash County SWCD, located at 599 Bryan Ave., Wabash, provides information about soil, water and related natural resource conservation; identifies and prioritizes local soil and water resource concerns; and connects land users to sources of education, technical and financial assistance to implement conservation practices and technologies.

came back home so that’s the only time I’ve not been in the county.” Stephan had been at a career completely unrelated to the agriculture field, and is glad to be settling back into a role in that area. “I have an animal science degree and this is more agronomy and soil, but anything related to agriculture is wonderful,” she said. Stephan will take care of the financial records for the board and the Wabash County Farm, as well as keep the board members abreast of conferences and seminars. She will also do some grant writing to acquire funding for various SWCD programming. “The County Farm is now managed by the Soil and Water Board, and so they do plant that acreage and harvest it and it really is a neat thing,” she said. “We would like to use it for a little bit more educational purposes.” After just three

weeks on the job, Stephan feels like it will be a good fit for her. “I enjoy it when producers come in. I’m able to talk to a lot of people I knew. I grew up in the county and I was active in 4-H and still am so I’m able to see a lot of people that I met through 4-H or the Extension Board,” she said. “I feel like this will work out very well and I enjoy what I’m doing.” Stephan has been married to her husband, Mike, for 12 years. They have two sons, Guy, 9, and Levi, 4. The hours of her new position have proved to be beneficial for her family.

“I feel like it is a win-win situation for




everyone involved, myself, my family,

and the district,” she concluded.

Deer hunter falls from treestand Indiana conservation officers investigated a hunting incident that left a Marshall County deer hunter suffering from pelvic and spinal injuries. On Oct. 15, Jeremy Bules of Bourbon was hanging a treestand in a woods he intended to deer hunt. Unknown to him, that final step into the treestand would have serious consequences. After falling 16 feet to the ground, Bules was fortunate to have his cell phone available to call for medical assistance. Bourbon EMS and Bourbon Fire were able to reach Bules in the

wooded location with the assistance of his father. Bules was airlifted to Memorial Hospital in South Bend by Samaritan helicopter. Falling from an elevated treestand is the most common type of hunting incident and can be avoided by taking the appropriate safety measures. Conservation Officers recommend a fall restraint system such as a safety vest or full body harness be attached to the tree when hunting from a treestand. The fall restraint system should be used when ascend-

ing or descending the tree also. Safety equipment and treestands should be inspected for damage and excessive wear every time a hunter takes to the field. Never underestimate the effect weather has on the materials you are counting on to keep you safe, and keep the time you expose your equipment to the weather at a minimum. Be sure to tell someone where you will be in case the unfortunate happens, and let them know when they should expect your return.

For the 20th consecutive year, the Wabash Rotary Club has hosted a benefit golf outing to kick-off Wabash County United Fund’s annual fundraising campaign. This year’s proceeds set a new record with $10,000 being award to the organization. Accepting on behalf of the United Fund was Christine Flohr, executive director. Flohr stated, “The Wabash Rotary Club’s leadership and support of the annual campaign is incredible. Their generosity

will truly generate positive impact in the county.” Rotarians Dave Dorais, Tom Frank, Brad Farlow and Art Jasen work closely with Flohr during the planning and execution of the event. “This was a record setting year for the golf outing,” shared Dave Dorais, committee chair for the outing. “The proceeds go to a great cause and the committee has a great time working together on the event.” Wabash County United Fund Board

This year’s hole in one sponsors were Dorais Chevrolet, Buick, GMC Dealer and Brandt’s HarleyDavidson with insurance coverage provided by Beauchamp and McSpadden. “Celebrating 20 years of hosting the United Fund’s campaign kick-off event and contributing a record $10,000 to the fund drive is something all Rotarians should be proud of,” state Ron Kerby, president of the club.

Happening Here. Shirlee Clevenger’s fight with breast cancer is an unusual one. Shirlee self discovered a lump in her left breast in March, 2010. A team of physicians at KCH swiftly biopsied the tissue and within the week, Dr. Sharon Rooney-Gandy diagnosed the breast cancer. The following week, Dr. Rooney located another type of cancer tissue in Shirlee’s right breast, discovered through a mammography and biopsy. The second cancer type was determined to be more aggressive than the first.


President Troy Cole expressed gratitude for the support of the annual campaign. “Along with the Wabash Rotary Club, Emily GueninHodson, the 2011 campaign chair, has done a tremendous amount of work to encourage the community to invest in United Fund’s efforts. This campaign has built strong funding partnerships that will affect the citizens of Wabash County for years to come.” The golf outing took place at the Honeywell Golf

“There isn’t a need for cancer patients to go elsewhere. It’s all here in Warsaw. Dr. Goksel, Dr. Bajpai and Luann Deafenbaugh collectively monitored and delivered my treatment plan at the KCH Cancer Care Center. I hold great confidence in Dr. Goksel as he is a gentle, compassionate and brilliant oncologist. We are fortunate to have his level of expertise locally. My physicians in Indianapolis equally trusted Dr. Goksel. The collaboration at the Center allowed me to receive treatment locally and continue with my daily teaching profession,” Shirlee said.

Jerry Sweeten, associate professor of biology and director of environmental studies at Manchester College, will be the speaker with the above topic. The meeting will take place on Nov. 14 in the assembly room of Timbercrest Senior Living Community. Dr. Sweeten will do a Powerpoint presentation and share these quotes from Aldo Leopold in his book, A Sand County Almanac. “There are some who can live without wild things and some who cannot. Like winds and sunsets, wild things were taken for granted until progress began to do away them them.” Dr. Sweeten indicates that his presentation will focus on the native animals of the Indiana landscape past and present.

He will examine Indiana in an ecological context, and how human induced changes have altered the animal world. With over 750 species of nongame, endangered and threatened wildlife, Indiana has changed significantly since European settlement. The public is invited to come at 6 p.m. on Nov. 14 to the assembly room of Timbercrest for a meal for those who wish to attend the meal. Reservations must be made no later than noon on Nov. 11, and may be made by calling Karl at 260-982-2216 or Evelyn at 260982-6777. The program begins at 6:40 p.m. There is no cost for the program as it is free to the public. All are welcome.

North Manchester resident requests action on parking issue near college Dear editor, Have you ever seen those commercials where a plumber, exterminator or health inspector is in the middle of their job only to realize that it is nearly time for Monday night football to begin? And so although they recognize there is a problem they leave without resolving it. I feel like that is happening in my neighborhood of N o r t h Manchester. The problem is my street and others (Ruse, Bond, etc.) adjacent to Manchester College have turned into long-term parking for students who live at the college and many who have paid the $60 to leave their vehicles on campus. The problem with these vehicles parked for days and weeks upon end without moving are

many. One is the safety issue of not being able to see down the street when exiting an alley or driveway as vehicles are crowding the alleys and driveways of residences. It requires an act of faith to exit such an area and makes me fear for the safety of my children if we were to be in an accident. A second problem is that it limits the amount of parking that I have either for my personal vehicles or for guests, which is especially problematic when they have mobility difficulties. Or, as was the case last winter when I had to park in the visitor’s lot at the college and walk over a block through ankle deep snow while carrying two children and four bags of groceries in 20-degree weather, as there was no parking available in front of

my house. Third, but certainly not last, is that not having access to our tree lawn impairs the work of maintaining the trees, which are in major need of pruning. In fact, two years ago, a large limb from one tree fell and damaged a student’s car that was parked below, and last year another large limb hung precariously above several students’ vehicles, but could not be accessed by the town’s pruning crew. The people who recognize that there is a problem, but have left in the middle of the job, are the college and the North Manchester Town Council. They have known for years about the situation, but have not done anything to resolve the problem. A solution was recently proposed by the college security

office, which was that there would be no parking on nights or weekends except by permit in areas adjacent to the college; permits that could only be secured by residences in those areas. I circulated a petition to said areas (College Avenue, Wayne, Miami, Ruse and Bond Streets) to affirm such a proposal and received 39 signatures, of which 20 were college students! Yet, nothing has been done and I want to know why. Both the Town Council and Manchester College have acknowledged it is a problem and have suggested solutions, but have not taken any action to resolve it. The time to act is now!

Assistance is available for unemployed homeowners The Indiana F o r e c l o s u r e Prevention Network (IFPN), a statewide multi-agency collaboration, committed to actively addressing Indiana’s foreclosure crisis through a variety of methods, is offering another tool for troubled h o m e o w n e r s throughout Indiana. The U.S. Department of the Treasury established the Housing Finance Agency Innovation Fund for the Hardest-Hit Markets (Hardest Hit Fund) to provide financial assistance to families in the states most impacted by the downturn of the housing market. Indiana was awarded over $221 million to help unemployed homeowners pay a portion of their mortgage. Under the Hardest Hit Fund Unemployment Bridge Loan Program, Building the Bridge to Recovery, IFPN is targeting low-to moderate-income homeowners whose primary residence is in any county in Indiana. “Since its formation in 2007, IFPN has been on the forefront of assisting homeowners reach an agreeable resolution with their mortgage lenders. We are excited to have the opportunity to utilize the Hardest Hit Funds to assist homeowners who have fallen behind on their mortgages

due to an unforeseen loss of income,� said Stephanie Reeve, director of asset preservation for the Indiana Housing and C o m m u n i t y D eve l o p m e n t Authority (IHCDA) who oversees the IFPN. The Hardest Hit Fund offers individuals who are unemployed through no fault of their own, assistance in paying their mortgage while they seek employment. Depending upon the county of residence, approved homeowners may receive assistance up to $12,000 or $18,000. At a minimum, applicants must meet these three requirements: - Must be a homeowner, owning only one home and currently residing in that home If currently unemployed must be a current unemployment insurance recipient. If reemployed after a prior period of unemployment, must have been an unemployment insurance recipient within the past 12 months - Must agree to participate in approved training, education or volunteer service work The overall goals are to secure reemployment in an individual’s chosen occupation or access training made available through the Indiana Department of Workforce Development that

will help secure employment in a new occupation. Another alternative is to participate in 40 hours per month of volunteer service t h r o u g h HoosierCorps. An estimated 13,000 Indiana households will receive assistance at an average assistance level of $702 per month for an average of approximately 16 months, inclusive of payments to clear delinquencies and aid after re-employment. Interested homeowners should visit or call 1-877-GetHope for further information.

DivorceCare, a 13week DVD series that features some of the nation’s foremost Christian experts on topics concerning divorce and recovery, meets from 6:30 to 8 p.m. every Tuesday, at the Wabash Friends Church Counseling Center, 3563 S. SR 13, Wabash, in the conference room. DivorceCare is a special weekly seminar and support group for people who are separated or divorced.

Hearings set for proposed possession limit changes The Natural R e s o u r c e s Commission will conduct two public hearings on proposed changes to clear up ambiguity regarding possession limits for legally taken fish and wildlife that have a bag limit, without adversely affecting wildlife species or unnecessarily encumbering legal anglers and hunters. A nine-month review of current regulations by two DNR divisions — Law Enforcement and Fish & Wildlife — prompted the agency to seek the change, which would exempt from the possession limit restriction legally taken wild animals

that have been processed and stored at an individual’s primary residence. Several other state wildlife agencies that were contacted as part of the review already have adopted similar rules. Currently, daily bag limit is defined (Indiana Code 14-8-218) as the quantity of individual wild animals that may be taken in one day of a specified season or during the entire season, and the possession limit is two times the daily bag limit. These changes would not apply to migratory birds and waterfowl. U.S. Fish and Wildlife authorities interpret posses-

Wabash Portable Equipment now offers selection of snowplows by Brent Swan After contemplating carrying snowplows for the past

couple of years, Wabash Portable Equipment owner Chuck Smith recent-

ly decided he would stock multiple styles as the 2011 winter approaches, becom-

ing Wabash County’s only snowplow dealer. “At the urging of a couple of our commercial customers who had been asking us to take them on from a parts standpoint, this year we decided we would do it,” Smith said. “We are already carrying them and have parts in stock as well.” Wabash Portable will feature two particular brands including The Boss and Western Snowplows. “We will price them out the door to the customer so they can install it, or we can also offer an installed package to the customer,” Smith added. “We can sell them either way.” In addition to the snowplows, Wabash Portable will feature a selection of in-stock parts and accessories for the plows they carry. As

this is the first year they have carried the plows, Smith stated he and his staff are working to decide which plows will be the most practical to stock on hand, but said they have options for practically every make and model of vehicle. “If someone wants a blade that we don’t have in stock, we can normally get whatever model they want overnight,” Smith explained. “If they choose to have us install it, we’ll set up

Marguerite Guenin gave devotions. She also reported that all but four members have paid their dues for 2011-2012. Secretary Cheryl Lewis read the minutes of the Sept. 13 meeting. The Chapter received a thank you note for their contribution to the “adopt a mini barn project” for the new USO at Camp Atterbury. Regent Jean Wright, Marguerite Guenin and Cheryl Lewis will attend the Fall Forum on Oct. 29 at Jonathan Byrd’s Cafeteria in G r e e n w o o d . Members have been busy making bookmarks and stars to sell as a moneymaking project at the forum. Regent Wright reported that she received a thank you from the North Manchester Public Library for the Chapter’s display for Constitution Week. The guest speaker for the evening was State Organizing Secretary Nancy George. George has been a member of the Indiana DAR

State Board for the last nine years. The topic of her speech was “Our American Heritage and Why We Must Preserve It”. She brought with her an old trunk that has been in her family for years. The inside of the trunk was lined with a Gazette newspaper from Easton, Md., dated Dec. 9, 1837. The trunk was brought from England around 1780 by the Reverend John Beach, an Episcopal minister, and brought from Connecticut to Indiana by Philo Nichols, the youngest greatgrandson of John Beach. The trunk was eventually passed on to George’s mother and George acquired it when her mother passed away in 2003. During George’s growing-up years, the old trunk was opened only a few times. She brought one of the items she can always remember being in the trunk, which was a doll named Sarah,

made in about 1888. Her body was made of kidskin. George stressed that members remember the strength of our ancestors, the freedom we have inherited, the history which brought us to this point in life and the opportunity our nation gives each of their citizens.

FEMA to conduct nationwide Wastewater Treatment Plan test of Emergency Alert System superintendent responds to recent advertisement

Wabash County E m e r g e n c y Management and Homeland Security recently announced that on Nov. 9 at 2 p.m., the federal government will conduct the first nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS). The test will last up to three and a half minutes. During this period, regularly scheduled television, radio, cable and satellite shows will be interrupted as the system is being tested. Wabash County E m e r g e n c y Management and Homeland Security would like to ensure that the residents of Wabash County are aware that this event will be just a test, and not a real emergency alert. The test is being conducted by the Federal Emergency

Management Agency (FEMA), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and the National Oceanic and A t m o s p h e r i c Administration (NOAA), as part of their ongoing efforts to keep the nation safe during emergencies and strengthen our resilience against all hazards. The national Emergency Alert System is an alert and warning system that can be activated by the president, if needed, to provide information to the American public during emergencies. NOAA’s National Weather Service, governors, and state and local emergency authorities also use parts of the system to issue more localized emergency alerts. The test is an

important exercise in ensuring that the system is effective in communicating critical information to the public in the event of a real national emergency. Similar to emergency alert system tests that are already conducted frequently on the local level, the nationwide test will involve television and radio stations across the United States, including Alaska, Hawaii and the territories of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa. Under the FCC’s rules, radio and television broadcasters, cable operators, satellite digital audio radio service providers, direct broadcast satellite service providers and wireline video service providers are required to receive

and transmit presidential EAS messages to the public. A national test will help federal partners and EAS participants determine the reliability of the system, as well as its effectiveness in notifying the public of emergencies and potential dangers both nationally and regionally. The test will also provide the FCC and FEMA a chance to identify improvements that need to be made to build a modernized and fully accessible Emergency Alert System. Wabash County E m e r g e n c y Management and Homeland Security, along with FEMA, encourages the public to use this event as a reminder that everyone should establish an emergency preparedness kit.

Dear editor, This letter is in response to a political advertisement that was published in the Nov. 1 issue of The Paper. First, for anyone who may have read that page, I would like to pass along my experience having worked for four and a half years under the current mayor of Wabash, Robert Vanlandingham.

Those committee members include: Steve “Bo� Bowman, Nancy Bowman, “Wild Bill� Gerding, Todd Titus, Marc Shelley, Robert McCallen III, Vicki Williams, Steve Weir, Wade Weaver, Julie Denniston, Jewell Truman, David “Smitty� Smith, Joe Eddingfield, Alan Miracle, Kenny Benge, Jessica Brown and Christine Flohr. The group begins meeting monthly from May to June and then meets weekly from July to October; with a few follow-up meetings after the event. “Serving on this committee is extreme-

ly rewarding despite the amount of time and effort it takes to pull off a one-day event of this magnitude,� shared Jewell Truman, a committee member for the last eight years. “There are so many worthy organizations, and being able to help them help the community makes all of our hard work worthwhile.� An awards reception will be held on Nov. 10 at Market Street Grill where the benefactors from the chili cook-off event will find out the amount of money they will receive. The selected recipients are: 85 Hope, ARC of Wabash County, Honeywell Center’s Educational Outreach Program, Juvenile Mentoring Program,

Manchester Early Learning Center, Special Olympics of Wabash County, Wabash County Cancer Society, Women’s Clubhouse, Winchester Senior Center Youth Service Bureau. The Wabash Cannonball Chili for Charity has donated a total of $265,000 back to the community since the first cook-off in 2002. Every dollar has remained in Wabash County with the exception of $500, which was given to the chili cook-off held in Baghdad, Iraq, between Army troops and Air Force personnel to help the Boys and Girls Clubs of Iraq. “Ever since we started this cook-off nine years ago at the Old Kettle Saloon, the

Squirrel hunter shoots deer hunter Indiana conservation officers are investigating the shooting of a deer hunter near North Webster. The incident occurred on Nov. 5 at approximately 3:30 p.m. when three Warsaw area juveniles went squirrel hunting on the DNR Tri-County Fish & Wildlife property. A 16-year-old hunter reported to conservation officers

he fired two shots from his .22 rifle at what he thought was the flicker of a squirrel’s tail. Trenton Wogoman, 33, Nappanee, was struck by one of the shots in the lower abdomen while deer hunting from an elevated deer stand. The 16-year-old realized that what he saw was not a squirrel when Wogoman shouted, “You shot me.�

The squirrel hunters assisted Wogoman out of his tree stand, called 911, and assisted him to a nearby road for a s s i s t a n c e . Wogoman was transported to Kosciusko Community Hospital by North Webster EMS. Samaritan helicopter then airlifted him to Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne where he is in stable condition.

Hammons expresses political concerns Dear editor, This is a call to arms! Not a call to weapons and violence, but exactly the opposite. This is a call to link arms with one another as wise, non-violent patriotic Americans. This is a time to cast off all the hate that is being resurrected all around the world. We have paid protestors on Wall Street that are chanting death to Wall Street and capitalism, smoking dope, trashing and stinking up the place, urinating and pooping on police cars, and crying over their own expensive laptops being stolen from them. Isn’t that what they are protesting for? Or is the message “take from everybody else who has anything, but don’t take from me!� Deception is covering the earth like a thick fog, but light burns off the fog. I have decided that a good rule to follow is that virtually everything that comes out of our leaders mouths is deceptive, and anyone they oppose must be doing something right. Every bill they are trying to pass is deceptive and

designed to tear us down. Can you see all the trouble we are in and facing? None of it has to be this way! N.O.N.E. None! We’ve got vast reserves and safe technology to produce our own oil, gas, water, etc. Think of the jobs created there and on the border building the great wall for our own safety? Cut the red tape, reduce redundant government agencies, make elected officials subject to the laws they write. Just think of the increase in police jobs to control them! Cut taxes so people can use what they have earned to put others to work! I don’t believe we have until the next election cycle to turn things around and get back on track. Something that burns in my soul is how he can be so confident? He is arrogant enough to say, “I always win in the fourth quarter!� One year ahead of time, he is working on eliminating the Constitution, congress and our ability to care for ourselves by destroying every path we can take to take care of ourselves! We can’t afford to say “I don’t get involved with

politics� or “My vote doesn’t count, we’re doomed anyway�. Have you heard about Agenda 21 that our government is working on to eliminate private property among other things? Or about new EPA rules being implemented in parts of the country that prevent restocking of fish ponds until a $100,000 EPA study is done on them? How about the push to eliminate tax exempt status from churches if they continue that crazy notion of teaching the principles of Jesus and daring to speak His name? If you get overwhelmed, try looking at the night sky and remember we have a very big, very powerful God and all things are possible through Him. On Oct. 29 at Honeywell Center at 1 p.m. with C3, Miami & Kosciusko county tea parties. Richard Mourdock and Jackie Walorski will speak. Pat Miller will emcee. On Nov. 7 at Bachelor Creek at 7 p.m., the movie, “Agenda�, will be played. Pat Hammons North Manchester

Wabash County Sheriff ’s Department, Wabash City Police Department and North Manchester Police Department recently announced that they will increase their efforts to detect Wabash County motorists who drive impaired or fail to wear a seatbelt. Officers will join nearly 250 other law enforcement agencies across the state to conduct the annual Safe Family Travel campaign. Beginning Nov. 11, police will be conducting high-visibility enforcement efforts such as saturation and sobriety checkpoints. This annual campaign also targets unrestrained motorists. “We are simply asking drivers to put safety first this holiday season,� said Corporal Chad Galligan. “Getting behind the wheel impaired is n ever okay. Either celebrate sober or designate a sober driver, otherwise, you’ll be spending the holiday with us.� “As the holiday season approaches, we will dedicate even more time to keeping motorists safe on Wabash County roadways,� said Sergeant Steve Hicks. “We’re asking drivers to put safety first this holiday season by designating a sober driver if they consume alcohol and remembering to wear a seatbelt every trip, every time.� Research shows that the use of a safety belt can decrease your chances of death or injury in the event of a motor vehicle collision by up to 50 percent. The Safe Family Travel campaign continues through Nov. 27. To learn more about high-visibility enforce-

ment efforts, visit www.StopImpairedDri The Safe Family Travel campaign is supported by federal funding allocated to Wabash County Sheriff ’s Department, Wabash City Police Department and North Manchester Police Department from the Traffic Safety division of the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute.

Chesterton man injured in crash with semi On Oct. 20 at approximately 4:20 a.m., officers from the Indiana State Police responded to a twovehicle crash on I-80 at the 15.5-mile marker, which injured a Chesterton man. A preliminary investigation by Trooper Lawrence

McFarrin revealed that Chad Call, 30, South Bend, was driving a 2011 Freightliner semitractor, pulling a trailer loaded with steel coils, westbound on I80, near the 15.5 mile marker. Call was driving in the far right lane of the three west-

bound lanes of I-80. For an unknown reason, the semi-tractor crossed into the far left lane, striking a westbound 2008 Chrysler minivan. The minivan was driven by Billy Ralph, 32, Chesterton. After impact, both vehicles came to rest against

THIS TWO-VEHICLE ACCIDENT resulted in contusions and lacerations to the head of the driver, Billy Ralph, 32, Chesterton. Despite his van being pinned beneath the semi, Ralph was able to climb out. (photo provided)

the median barrier wall, with the van underneath the trailer that was being pulled by the Freightliner. Call said a gust of wind caused his trailer to rock. The rocking trailer caused the left front tire of the truck cab to blow. Call said he lost steering and control of the truck. An inspection of the wrecked semitractor, by a motor carrier inspector from the Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle E n f o r c e m e n t Division, did not reveal any flat tires on the Freightliner. Call was issued a citation for unsafe lane movement. Ralph suffered contusions and lacerations to his head. He was taken to a local hospital by a family member. Despite having his van pinned underneath the trailer, he was able to climb out on his own. Call was not injured. Both drivers were wearing seat belts. Neither the use of alcohol nor drugs is suspected as being a contributing factor in this crash.

19 Kokomo man arrested on charges related to vehicle pursuit

November 9, 2011

On Sept. 14, the Indiana State Police, at the request of the Kokomo Police Department, initiated an investigation into a vehicle pursuit, which culminated with a police action shooting, in which a Kokomo man was shot and injured. The investigation by Indiana State Police Detective Tony Frawley revealed that at approximately 11:45 p.m., on Sept. 14 an officer with the Kokomo Police Department stopped a 1991 Chevrolet Geo for allegedly speeding and driving left of center near Wheeler and Bell streets in Kokomo. As the officer was speaking to the driver of the Geo, he sped away, leading officers from the Kokomo Police Department and the Howard County Sheriff ’s Department on a 12-minute pursuit. The pursuit ended in Tipton County on U.S. 31 near CR 450 S. The Geo was disabled in the roadway after having hit stop sticks on two separate occasions. The driver, identified as Reed M. Turner, 25, Kokomo, exited his vehicle and approached officers positioned behind the Geo. His right hand was behind his back, where officers could not see what he was holding. Turner ignored repeated commands to stop and show his hands. A police dog was released to take Turner down. Turner ran to his left (west) to evade the dog. He brought his right hand from behind his back. That is when a Kokomo police officer saw a chrome or silver object in Turner’s right hand. The officer, fearing the object was a handgun, fired one shot from his .40 caliber Glock handgun. Turner was struck in the chest neutralizing him. The investigation revealed the object was a cologne bottle. Turner was transported by ambulance to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. He survived and recovered from his injury. Later, the investigation resulted in Turner being arrested on a class D felony count of resisting law enforcement with a vehicle and a misdemeanor charge of

criminal recklessness. Turner surrendered to Detective

Frawley at the Tipton County Jail, where Turner was served a

Tipton Circuit Court arrest warrant alleging the two charges.

Turner has posted a $7,500 bond. Earlier this month,

the Tipton County prosecutor determined that the

Kokomo police officer who shot Turner was justified in his actions

Tobacco Free Coalition to offer free cessation classes for veterans

Tobacco is the leading cause of preventable death in the United States, killing more than 400,000 Americans every year. Tobacco use takes an enormous toll on the health and physical fitness of active duty U.S. mili-

tary personnel and veterans because this population smokes at dramatically higher rates than the rest of the U.S. population. Tobacco use adversely affects military readiness, the health of both smokers and non-smokers, and is a

financial burden on the Department of Defense and VA healthcare systems. A large number of smokers in the military want to quit, but u n f o r t u n a t e l y, because of the addictive power of nicotine, most smokers

fail when they try to quit smoking on their own, and many do not have access to proven interventions that would greatly enhance their chances of success. According to data published by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), the prevalence of past month smoking among all branches of the U.S. military was 30.6 percent in 2008, compared to 20.6 percent among adults in the general U.S. population. While smoking among all active duty service personnel is down significantly from levels that exceeded 50 percent in 1980, the smoking rate among this population has remain

unchanged since 1998, when it was 29.9 percent. The U.S. Marine Corps has the highest rate of smoking at 37.4 percent followed by the Army at 33.3 percent, the Navy at 30.7 percent and the U.S. Air Force at 22.6 percent. In addition, according to the DoD report, among active duty personnel, those with the highest rates of smoking were male (32.3 percent), white (34.3 percent) had a high school education or less (43 percent), and were not married (35.1 percent). Smoking is directly correlated with pay grade and whether the service member is enlisted or an officer. Smoking was highest among pay grades E1 to E3 at 40 percent, compared to pay grades E4 to E6 (36 percent), O1 to O3 (10 percent) and O4 to O10 (5 percent). In addition to cigarette smoking, smokeless tobacco use for all DoD services increased from 12.2 percent in 2002 to 14.5 percent in 2005 and decreased just slightly to 13.6 percent in 2008. Among males across all services, the rate of smokeless tobacco use was 15.6 percent, and prevalence of use was higher among younger personnel. The prevalence rate of smokeless tobacco use for men aged 18 to 24 was 19.0 percent, but was only 11.2 percent of those aged 35 or older. Personnel in the Marine Corps had the highest rates of smokeless use (21.5 percent), followed by the Army (16.2 per-

cent), Navy (9.8 percent), and Air Force (8.8 percent). The prevalence of smokeless tobacco use was especially high among males aged 18 to 24 in the Marine Corps and the Army, with more than onefifth of males reporting past-month use. There were no significant changes in smokeless tobacco use from 2005 to 2008 for any of the services. While tobacco use takes an enormous toll on all users, it has particularly detrimental consequences for active duty military personnel. Tobacco use reduces soldiers’ physical fitness and endurance and is linked to higher rates of absenteeism and lost productivity. In addition, service members who use tobacco are more likely to drop out of basic training, sustain injuries and have poor vision, all of which compromise troop readiness. Tobacco use also places a significant burden on the Department of Defense and VA healthcare systems, costing the systems billions of dollars every year in smoking-caused healthcare costs. According to a 2009 Institute of Medicine Report, Combating Tobacco in Military and Veteran Populations, in 2008 it cost the VA $5 billion to treat smoking-related emphysema and, in 2006, the Military Health System spent about $564 million on tobacco-related health care costs.

According to a 2008 survey of the VA enrollee population, 19.7 percent (1.4 million) of the entire enrollee population are current smokers. This is slightly lower than the 20.6 percent of current smokers in the general population in 2008. current smoking among the VA enrollee population was down slightly in 2008 from 21.5 percent in 2007 and 22.2 percent in 2005. 70 percent of enrollees reported ever smoking. Most current veteran smokers are 45-64 years old (64 percent) and make less than $36,000 per year (63 percent). 56 percent of current smokers reported that they tried to quit in the past year. Smoking among veterans is costing the VA healthcare system billions of dollars every year as lifetime healthcare costs for smokers are on average $17,000 higher compared to nonsmokers. Every veteran has access to a proven intervention that would greatly enhance their chances of success to quit their use of tobacco. The free state quit line, 1-800QUIT-NOW, is available for anyone that wants to quit. This free service is recognized as a proven intervention to help anyone that is ready to quit his or her tobacco use. The Wabash County Tobacco Free Coalition and the Wabash County YMCA is offering a free cessation class to all our Wabash County Veterans. Along with the cessation instruction there will be diet, exercise, stress release guidance and will have free access to the YMCA facilities during the five-week course. All you have to do is register at the front desk of the YMCA. The class will begin Nov. 22 at 6 p.m. For any other information about the class, call Dan at 260274-2920.

Drivers should be aware of deer this fall

As days shorten, drivers are encouraged to be cautious as their chances of encountering deer on roadways increase significantly at this time of year. Nearly 50 percent of all vehicle accidents involving white-tailed deer occur between October and December, according to Chad Stewart, deer research biologist for the DNR. The main reason is the increase in deer activity. With their breeding season approaching, deer become more active in the fall. This activity often leads them to encounter roads more frequently, increasing the opportunity for a collision. Other factors contributing to accident frequency are deer density, vehicle density, surrounding habitat, speed limits and time of day. Indiana Crash Facts, an annual report compiled by the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute,

Center for Criminal Justice Research and the IUPUI School of Public & Environmental Affairs, reported 15,990 deer-related collisions in 2010. That’s a decrease of 1.4 percent from 2009 but almost 29 percent more than the 11,371 collisions reported by Indiana Crash Facts in 2000. “With the number of deer and the number of vehicles out there, deer-vehicle accidents will happen,” Stewart said. “The best thing drivers can do is to take measures to keep them to a minimum.” Knowing the following information and practicing defensive driving will help reduce your chances of becoming a deervehicle collision statistic: - Fall is the most common season to strike a deer - Deer are most active between sunset and sunrise - Deer often travel

in groups, so if you see one, another is likely nearby - Be especially careful in areas where you have seen deer before - Use high beams when there is no opposing traffic; scan for deer’s illuminated eyes or dark silhouettes along the side of the road - If you see a deer, slow your speed drastically, even if it is far away - Exercise extreme caution along woodlot edges, at hills, or blind turns - Never swerve to avoid hitting a deer; most serious crashes occur when drivers try to miss a deer but hit something else Drivers should pay attention to traffic signs warning of deer crossings and may want to steer clear of gimmicks. “Deer crossing signs have proved effective, but motorists tend to get acclimated to such signs, and their efficiency can be reduced

over time,” Stewart said. “Fancy whistles or reflectors can be placed on your car to scare deer away, but truth be told, they will only keep you from hitting unicorns or dragons.” Stewart said that even when practicing safe driving, sometimes hitting a deer is inevitable. Caution is also the best approach after the fact. “If you hit a deer, remain calm,” he said. “Do not approach the deer

unless you are sure it has expired. Despite their gentle nature, their hooves are sharp and powerful, and can be extremely dangerous. “Stewart said that, like cars and people, deer can be found anywhere, so drivers should be on the lookout. “Whether you’re driving through the Hoosier National Forest, your developed neighborhood, or inside the city limits of Indianapolis,

keep your eye out,” he said. “Though a deervehicle accident can occur at any time of the day during any season, your chances of striking a deer are greatest at low light conditions between

October and December. “Take additional caution during these times, lower your speed, and be alert.”

It is time for Snowflake Hoosiers Helping Heroes to pack IN Jubilee in North Manchester boxes at Winchester Senior Center PUSS BOOTS Ah, yes, winter is a coming and so are the snowflakes; that is why 12 businesses in North Manchester have decided to bring back the holiday cheer to the town and celebrate with a Snowflake Jubilee. With prizes totaling over $500 dollars worth of gift certificates from participating businesses, the holiday season is going to be a lot easier on the bank account. The following businesses have put together a raffle for first, second and third prizes consisting of gift certificates from each participant in different denominations for each place: Harting Furniture Gallery, Hire’s Gifts & Electronics, Nordmann’s Nook, One World Handcrafts, Inc., Main View Inn, Pizza Hut, The Creative Stitch, Seifert’s High 5 Sports, The Studio, Frantz Lumber Company, Modern

Impressions and KenapocoMocha Coffee & Pastry Shop. “The participating businesses will be running some great specials and have been very generous with their gift certificates for the winners,” said Chamber Executive Director Tim McLaughlin. “We encourage you to support the participants and shop locally for your holiday gifts.” The rules are as follows: - Each customer will need five paid receipts with the name of a participating business and they need to be dated between Nov. 11 and Dec. 12. No limit on entries. - The customer will need to return the five paid receipts to a participating business (look for the display poster) or the North M a n c h e s t e r Chamber of Commerce office.

The customer will need to fill out a raffle ticket that will be provided at these locations and attach the five paid receipts to the back of the raffle ticket and drop into a Snowflake box that will be located at all participating businesses by the deadline of Dec. 12. - The winning raffle tickets will be drawn on Dec. 12 by the North M a n c h e s t e r Chamber of Commerce. Winners will be notified by phone. - First, second and third place prizes consist of gift certificates of different denominations from each participating business. The Snowflake Jubilee is sponsored by the retail committee, a division of the North Manchester Chamber of Commerce. For more information, contact the Chamber of Commerce at 260-9827644.

Plymouth Notch is also where Vice President Calvin Coolidge was sworn in as the 30th president of the United States on Aug. 23, 1923, after the death of President Warren Harding. They traveled the beautiful K a n c a m a g u s Highway in New Hampshire, stopped in Maine at President Bush’s summer home, the Portland Head Lighthouse, the


Maritime Museum, and took a cruise. In Massachusetts, they visited the Old Sturbridge Village and in Pennsylvania they stopped to visit the Gettysburg battlefield. Their trip took place Oct. 9-17, just a short time after Hurricane Irene (Aug. 29) hit the east coast area. A lot of the devastation was still visible. Patty said it “was a fun trip to see historical sites and eat delicious food at special restaurants along the way.” BRUNCH BUNCH met at 8 a.m. at Pam’s Café on Nov. 2 with the following people present: Doris Mattern, Jim and Anne Bell, Phil and Jan Weck, Max and Ruth Reed, Donna Russell, and Marvin and Mary Ann Mast.

Corn expert cautions growers making harvest-time decisions Though growers can use harvest data to make decisions for next year’s seed corn, a Purdue Extension corn specialist says they should look at a variety of field conditions before deciding on hybrids. This year’s crop experienced water stress on both ends of the spectrum, with early spring flooding and late-summer drought. Bob Nielsen said those conditions may not lead to a balanced view of hybrid performance. “We all want to take those mental notes as we’re harvesting, but it’s important to be cautious about overreacting,” he said.

“Hybrid performance in a single field, good or bad, is only a single snapshot of its potential.” Nielsen said the top criterion for hybrid selection always is yield potential, but consistency of yield also is important. “Acceptable hybrids for your farm are those that exhibit high yields over a wide variety of growing conditions,” he said. “The hybrid doesn’t have to win every trial, but it should be near the top of all of them.” Nielson said growers also should consider tolerance to stresses such as disease, drought and excess water. Seed companies typically will rate hybrids for resistance to gray leaf spot and northern corn leaf blight, two of the most important foliar diseases in Indiana. Farmers can find yield data on university websites, including Purdue’s multistate database, the Purdue Crop Performance Program, at Seed companies also publish variety trial information, and there also are independent research companies, including the Farmer’s I n d e p e n d e n t Research of Seed Technologies, or FIRST trials.

“If this year’s variety trial results are not yet available when you are ready to order hybrids for next year, do not hesitate to consult published results from the previous year,” Nielsen said. “Good hybrids, ones that tolerate a wide range of growing conditions, remain in the marketplace for several years.” Once growers have looked at hybrid data, they will need to contact their seed representatives soon, Nielsen said. With this year’s crop stresses, seed companies may be short of popular varieties. “Seed companies suffered the same problems we all did,” Nielsen said. “When farmers start to get serious about ordering seeds for next year, they may be in short supply.” Companies often will provide a rating on early season vigor, or how readily a stand will establish in cool or wet conditions. As always, the soil and location of the field determines many of the grower’s needs, he said. In addition to yield performance, consistency, disease and pest resistance, Nielsen said growers should consider personal preferences based on their equipment and storage needs.

R O A N N LIBRARY NEWS: We want to know what do you geek? The word geek is now a verb, meaning to love, to enjoy, to celebrate, to have an intense interest in or passion for, to possess a large amount of knowledge in, or to promote. Whatever you geek, the public library supports you. Let us help you “get your geek on”. Stop by and share your interests up on our bulletin board. The library will be closed on Nov. 11 in recognition of Veteran’s Day. THE SEPTEMBER MEETING of the Happy Homemakers was held at the home of Kay Hapner in Carmel. Lunch and a pleasant afternoon was enjoyed by those who attended. Connie Huffman’s home was the meeting place for the Happy Homemakers in October. Dot Bowman was her cohostess.

location was as close as Ijamsville. At one time there was a hotel, water tower, signal tower and roundhouse. As many as 24 to 30 passenger trains a day went through North Manchester. One could even get tickets at Newton to where you wanted to go. Also the telegraph was there. Water was pumped from the river for the water tower during the time of the round house. The pumps were operated by Mr. Manefee, later Mr. Fulton and Buck Whittaker. The round house had stalls for a considerable number of locomotives. Albert

Rooney served as hostler, and with helpers curried the engines, fed them housed them over night, and had them ready for the next run. People speculated that those towns would all be built together and become the railroad metropolis of the Midwest. Freeman Fox had the hotel at Newton, but Newton was not to grow much for the Erie and Wabash came to crisscross on the lease. Wabash built a line from Montpelier to Chicago so this was the downfall of Newton. In 1919, one of the worse train wrecks happened at

this junction. A westbound Erie train had stopped with the caboose a short distance west of the tower at the Vandalia crossing. A second train from the east could not stop in time due to air brakes not working and smashed into the rear of the standing freight. This tore up a lot of track and mashed or damaged twenty some cars. It killed a Vandalia engineer and injured two other men who were in the tower. The crash took the town down and piled cars on top. One man had left the tower only minutes before and another brakeman at the door saw

what was happening and jumped clear. The crew on the other train was not injured as they had jumped clear also. The tower was rebuilt of cement blocks. Even if everything else was gone, the tower was still in use. It was automatic for many years. Mr. Wallace Frederick was the last telegraph operator to be there and he retired after 41 years with the railroad in 1960. For a time, freight was dropped at Newton and trucks could pick it up, but this also came to a stop. As so many things in the past, Newton that never was a town is now just a memory.

(From Laketon 140 Years) THE NEXT LAKETON / PLEASANT TOWNSHIP ASSOCIATION MEETING will be held on Nov. 28 at 6 p.m. There will be a carry-in (snacks and finger food) first and then there will be election of officers for the next year. There will be no meeting in December, and the next meeting will be held on Jan. 30 at 7 p.m., where the new officers will take over. The association is waiting on estimates to fix the tornado siren before it is decided the best way to proceed. P L E A S A N T TOWNSHIP FIRE

EMMANUEL CHRISTIAN SCHOOL (ECS) recently held its yearly, student-led campaign for student council. Students were nominated for positions by fellow students and then the students participated in voting in officers for the student council. The voting was closed, but in the end the votes tallied the following positions: Justin Fleshood, president; Sara Real, vice president; Hanna Morris, secretary; Maverick Rish, chaplain; Wesley Gaunt, HS member at large; and Emily Daniel and Bethaney Porter, both JH members at large. Student council at ECS has involvement in many different areas inside the school as well as outside. The student council meets with administration once a month to look at service projects to be involved with, as well as sharing student interests and concerns with administration. They are looked at as leaders within the school and with that they are expected to be leaders within the community. The ECS student council already has plans to help out the Wabash Mission next month with giving out food baskets. Pictured are: front row, (from left) Bethaney Porter, Emily Daniel, Sara Real, Hanna Morris; back row, Maverick Rish, Justin Fleshood and Wesley Gaunt. (photo provided)

Rupert Boneham to seek the Libertarian Party nomination for governor

Rupert Boneham recently announced his intentions to seek the nomination of the Libertarian Party for the office of the Governor of Indiana. “It’s time for a change in Indiana,” said Boneham. “Hoosiers have consistently voted in professional politicians and look at the results. Hoosiers should have a different choice in 2012. Through my experi-

ences running my small businesses and my nonprofits, I have witnessed firsthand the dysfunctional state of our current government. We have to move in a different direction, and we can’t turn the reins of government over to the same politicians that created the mess.” Boneham continued, “I am in a unique position to bring together Hoosiers of

all walks of life to serve our state. I am not beholden to any special interests. I have only one interest: Empowering Hoosiers to give back to their communities. If the government puts up roadblocks, then they should be repealed.” “Many people are aware of me through one small aspect of my life, which was my time on Survivor. I’ve come up from humble

beginnings to own and operate several small businesses. I was then on this reality TV show that allowed me a platform to raise money for my charity, Rupert’s Kids. Through that work I’ve been blessed, and I’ve put almost everything back in to my community. I am looking forward to telling Hoosiers my entire story.” Boneham came into a national spotlight through his appearances on Survivor. During the first

“Heroes and Villains” season, out of 38 million votes, 34 million viewers selected Boneham as their favorite survivor, and awarded him check for one million dollars. This remains the highest vote total ever in a modern American TV reality show competition. After winning his million dollars, Boneham made good on his promise to donate a large portion to create Rupert’s Kids, the culmination of 20-plus years of

work with at-risk youth. The organization’s goal is to mentor at-risk youth. Their stated mission is to help, “those that have become too old for the youth social service system, but are not old enough for the adult social service system. We teach these youth valuable skills and trades, while also empowering them to discover their inner strengths, passions and interests.” Rupert’s Kids, in partnership with the

Statewide survey shows rural citizens more likely to be prepared for disaster than city counterparts

Results of a statewide readiness survey show that people who live in rural areas are nearly 12 percent more likely to be prepared for a disaster than those who live in and around urban areas. The online survey was a joint effort between the Survey Research Center at Indiana University â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Purdue University Indianapolis and the Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS). More than 2,000 people form across the state responded. Based on the results, residents in rural areas are 28 percent more likely to have a home evacuation plan than those in urban areas.

Statewide survey... continued from page 37 T

dents: - 29 percent of Hoosiers own an all hazards radio - 28 percent of Hoosiers have a preparedness kit Hoosiers who had been forced to evacuate due to an emergency were 27 percent more likely to own a fully-stocked preparedness kit and more than 23 percent more likely to have a home evacuation plan than those who had never been forced to evacuate their home due to a natural disas-

ter. Another compelling discovery from the data showed the regional differences in overall preparedness levels. Three of the four highest scoring areas of the state, based on IDHS districts, were in the northwest portion of Indiana. More than half of the counties that scored in the “high preparedness” categories were located in districts 1, 2 and 3, with District 2 receiving the highest overall score. Wabash

was ranked as “highly p r e p a r e d ” . Additionally a pattern of clustering is clearly evident in multiple areas of the state; the Interstate 69 corridor from Marion to Allen County shows a relatively low level of preparedness. Four of the five most populous counties in Indiana (Marion, Lake, Allen and Hamilton) scored in the “low preparedness” category. The populous counties that did not follow the trend (St. Joseph,

E l k h a r t , Vanderburgh, Porter and Tippecanoe) are located along large rivers (Wabash, St. Joseph, Ohio and Kankakee), which have the potential for major flooding. A second survey was administered for members of Indiana’s public safety community. Respondents represented a wide variety of public safety fields, including fire, police, emergency management, emergency medical services, government and military. This survey provided a contrast to the survey for the general public by assessing how public safety

officials perceive the preparedness of the citizens in their community. Only 24 percent of public safety officials believe their community is adequately prepared for a major disaster. When asked if they believed citizens were aware of all potential disasters that could occur in their local area, only 23 percent of public safety officials said citizens were aware. More than a quarter of the officials surveyed had been involved in a large scale disaster response where residents were forced to evacuate their home.
