For Bonnie Reed, Hoosier Point was more than a landmark. It was her work. It was a “jumpin’ truck stop,” and a restaurant full of memories. Above all, it was a gathering place. “Everybody gathered at Hoosier Point,” said Reed. “It was like a big family.” Part of what made it like a family for Reed was the fact that much of her family worked in or near the diner. She was employed at the restaurant on multiple occasions. Her husband managed the filling station next door. Her brother and daughter each managed the restaurant at different times. Reed’s father, Fred Hamilton, owned a garage across the road where he worked as a mechanic much of his life. “It was a home away from home,” said Reed. On Monday, Oct. 28, the SCS Environmental Contracting excavator engine was fired up and the walls of the historic structure came crashing down. The landmark was built by Manuel and Ruth Leach in 1958. Half of the building was their home, while the other half housed their business, Leach’s Ice House. The building housed the couple and their two sons, Steve and Donald, for four years. Manuel eventually sold the building to National Oil & Gas, who leased it to every restaurant owner since. The company owned the (continued on page 5)

Teen Moms thanks First United Methodist Church Dear Editor, We would like to thank the First United Methodist Church of Wabash for their tireless hospitality and kindness shown to the Teen Moms program during the past five years. They opened their doors and hearts to house a much-needed ministry in Wabash. In particular, we want to thank Steve Keffaber and Susan Vanlandingham for graciously giving their time and for their insight in helping to meet our every need. It has become evi-

dent to us that as we have grown in numbers, we have outgrown the space available at First United Methodist. For this reason, we have made the decision to relocate. As we do so, we leave with grateful hearts for all that has been done for Teen Moms in the name of Jesus. You have been a blessing to us. Gratefully, The Teen Moms Steering Committee: Susan Shannon, Angie Bear and Mary Willmert

providing artistic, social, cultural and recreational opportunities for all. Campaign contributors will grow the non-profit organization’s endowment fund, which provides financial stability for the foundation and its many programs and offerings. “The Honeywell Foundation relies on earnings from its endowment to provide our exemplary programs and offerings,” says executive director Tod Minnich. “We are fortunate to have a loyal patron base that not only attends programs, but also provides philanthropic support,” he continued. “We appreciate all donations to the foundation, and this campaign allows supporters a way to make a most meaningful contribution that will benefit generations to come.” The $8 million in new endowment donations will provide support to some of the Foundation’s core programs. In particular, the Foundation received a $2.5 million match-


ing grant that provides a dollar-for-dollar match for new and increased gifts. The $2.5 million match will establish a permanent endowment for the E d u c a t i o n a l Outreach Program. This program provides low and no-cost educational opportunities for youth in 12

Indiana counties. The program provides more than 45,000 students with learning opportunities annually. So far, nearly $2 million in qualifying gifts have been raised. $500,000 is needed by Dec. 31 in order to maximize pledge. “The educational

Outreach Program provides inspiring programs to youth,” continues Minnich. “Since 1998, the program has expanded from two counties to 12 and from a few hundred students to more than 45,000. This growth came at a time when schools faced challenging budgets, and many

programs were either reduced or cut. The E d u c a t i o n a l Outreach Program helps provide students additional opportunities to enhance their learning experiences through art.” In addition to providing needed support to the E d u c a t i o n a l Outreach Program, the campaign also allows donors special naming opportunities. Gifts of $25,000 or greater will allow donors to create a personally named endowment. Many donors have elected to provide named endowments supporting a variety of programs. These endowments include support for classical prog r a m m i n g , Broadway performances, youth-based programs and historic preservation, to name a few. In total, $6 million has already been committed to this campaign. “We are thrilled at the response from our generous donors,” says Cathy Gatchel, director of external relations. “The goal of this campaign has always been two-fold. Besides raising $8 million, we wanted to make sure all Honeywell patrons had an opportunity to give to this meaningful effort. The success of the Honeywell Foundation only happens through the passionate support of the thousands of donors and patrons who believe in what we do.” A 12-member L e a d e r s h i p Committee has worked tirelessly, promoting the foundation in pursuit of the $6 million raised so far. “The Leadership Committee has been absolutely instrumental to this campaign’s success. Their dedication and volunteerism are simply unmatched,” said Minnich. “This campaign has paved the way for a very bright future for the H o n e y w e l l Foundation.” If you would like more information about the campaign, please contact Cathy Gatchel at 260-5631102, ext. 525 or

Hoosier Point, Joe’s Diner demolished... continued from front page building for more than five decades and made the final decision to have it demolished after a kitchen fire this past summer. Hoosier Point started as a truck stop and restaurant, located in the middle of what is now the intersection of US 24 and State Road 13. It was opened by Cliff Stouder, brother of Wally Stouder, Penguin Point founder and namesake to the Big Wally burger. Reed worked for Stouder as a waitress. She remembers sitting in the old Hoosier Point, looking out the window toward Leach’s, and hearing “that’s where the new restaurant is going.” In 1961, Hoosier Point moved into the former Leach’s Ice House. A few months later, Stouder sold the restaurant to Bud Chain. In those days, the diner had a Friday special, and patrons could get fish, fries, coleslaw and a drink for $1. In the following years, the iconic roadside restaurant changed ownership several times and was owned by Willard Johnson, during which time Reed’s brother, Thomas Hamilton, was the manager. It was later sold to Hubert Baker, followed by Oakley Phillips. In 1977, former Wabash County

Sheriff Bill Wheatley took over the lease. Bill’s wife Esta has fond memories of the place. “It was a big part of our life,” said Esta. “We met a lot of wonderful people through the years. People would bring their babies by from the hospital to share the good news. It was the meeting place.” After working in a factory for 10 years, Reed went back to work at Hoosier Point. In 1980, Jo Kerr started as a waitress. During her 17 years at the roadside stop, she also cooked and even took on some managerial duties. As a close friend, Kerr remembers when the Wheatleys decided to buy the restaurant. “Bill looked at Esta and said ‘you wanna buy a restaurant?’ and well, he bought it!” said Kerr. When Wheatley sold the restaurant in the fall of ’97, Kerr’s time at the restaurant came to an end as well, but the restaurant stayed in familiar hands. Bud Chain’s daughter, Glenda, took over ownership. While the price of a fish dinner had changed since her father’s time, the gathering place retained its family atmosphere. A few years later, Bonnie Reed’s daughter, Linda Ritter, took

over the restaurant that her mother referred to as her “home away from home.” After the turn of the century, the name of the restaurant changed along with the ownership. Hoosier Point became Nick’s Café until 2004, when it was taken over by Joe Clary, becoming Joe’s Diner. Though the name on the sign changed, it was rare to hear the landmark restaurant referred to as anything but Hoosier Point. In January of 2007, Trent and Diane Miller took over the lease, keeping the Joe’s Diner name. They operated the diner until July 19, 2013 when a fire brought an end to 52 years of community in the building that began as a home for the Leach family. Three and a half months later, all that remains of the community hot spot is a single gas line, which will be removed in the coming weeks. “We assessed rebuilding costs versus our claim and demolition costs, and we just elected to demolish it,” said National Oil & Gas Vice President Trout Moser. “For now it’s going to remain a parking lot. We needed more truck parking anyway.”

Millers moved their business into the former Jim Dandy/Wabash Gardens building on Manchester Avenue, opening Not Your Average Joe’s in the fall. Patrons can start ordering from their extensive menu at 6 a.m. each morning. The new restaurant, which includes a full bar, serves dinner as late as 8 p.m. six days a week, closing the doors at 3 p.m. on Sundays. Perhaps Not Your Average Joe’s will be able to pick up where Joe’s Diner left off, but for many, no restaurant will ever take the place of the old Hoosier Point. “Everybody came in and everyone knew everyone,” said Kerr. “It was just a gathering place, you know.” “It was a great time in our life and we’re thankful to everyone for that,” said Wheatley. The empty lot has undoubtedly turned some heads and caused a few double

takes. For those who grew up always knowing that corner for its home-cooked food and welcoming atmosphere, the hole in the landscape at 13 and 24 is, perhaps, a good metaphor for the feelings of those who knew it best. “Everybody gathered at Hoosier Point,” said Reed. “A lot of good memories, a lot of good people. I just hate to see it go.”

Protect your roof from ice dams this winter Is there ice build up on the edge of your roof this winter? If you haven’t closed the insulation gaps, major damage can be caused to this part of the house by ice damming. This starts with air leakage and it is preventable. Experts at Decker Home Services tell us that as your heating system produces

warm air, it spreads throughout the levels of your house and some of it can escape through the ceiling of the top floor. This air then comes into contact with the inside edge of the roof and, when melting snowfalls onto that portion, it can slowly trickle down and freeze. As more ice builds, a dam is created on the edge,

and this can cause water to leak into your house. If any portion of the home is made of wood, water is especially harmful to it. This can cause mold and unwelcome, costly repair bills. If ice damming sounds familiar, it is wise to fix the problem at once. Specialized insulation will do it, experts

say. Products like the Icynene spray foam prevent air leakage and alleviate cases of ice damming. At the same time, high quality spray insulation increases your home’s energy efficiency, reduces your heating bills and provides a more comfortable indoor environment. More information is available online at

Storing your rain barrel for the winter Rain barrels are popular methods of gathering rainwater, which can then be used in various ways. Rain barrels are typically attached to a home’s gutters and downspouts to collect water as it flows off of the roof. The collected water can be used for gardening, washing cars and watering the lawn. Some water collection systems can be used for drinking water, but such products require specialized filtration and sanitizing systems. While rain barrels can be effective in various climates, to prevent damage, water barrels may need to be stored in regions where freezing temperatures are common in the wintertime. When storing your

rain barrel for the winter, consider the following tips. It is best to disconnect the downspout from the rain barrel and reattach the gutter extension to funnel water away from the foundation of the house. Make sure the rain barrel is empty. Frozen water expands as it forms into ice, and it can crack the rain barrel. Flip the rain barrel over so that it will not collect any rain or snow and store it in an out-of-the-way area outside. If you have enough room, you may want to store the barrel indoors in a garage, basement or storage shed. Take in any hoses so they do not freeze and

crack from the cold


Protect your winter landscape from hungry wildlife There’s no doubt that managing critters in the landscape can be a challenge especially as food supplies start to dwindle. If you are battling with rabbits, deer, groundhogs or other wildlife, don’t let down your guard as the growing season begins to wind down. Be proactive. Start before they get into the habit of dining on your landscape. It is easier to keep them away than break the dining habit. Fence them out. Fencing is the best defense against most wildlife. A four feet tall fence around a small garden will keep out rabbits. Secure the bottom tight to the ground or bury it several inches to prevent rabbits and voles from crawling underneath. Or fold the bottom of the fence outward, making sure it’s tight to the ground. Animals tend not to crawl under when the bottom skirt faces away from the garden. Go deeper, at least 12 to 18 inches, if you are trying to discourage woodchucks. And make sure the gate is secure. Many hungry animals have found their way into the garden through openings around and under the gate. A five-foot fence around small garden areas can help safeguard your plantings against hungry deer. Some gardeners report success surrounding their garden with fishing line mounted on posts at one and three foot heights. Break out the repellents. Homemade and commercial repellents can be used. Apply

before the animals start feeding and reapply as directed. Consider using a natural product like Messina’s Animal Stopper. It is made of herbs, safe to use and smells good. Scare ‘em away. Blow up owls, clanging pans, rubber snakes, slivers of deodorant soap, handfuls of human hair and noisemakers are scare tactics that have been used by gardeners for years. Consider your environment when selecting a tactic. Urban animals are used to the sound and smell of people. Alternate scare tactics for more effective control. The animals won’t be afraid of a snake that hasn’t moved in weeks. Combine tactics. Use a mix of fencing, scare tactics and repellents. Keep monitoring for damage. If there are enough animals and they are hungry, they will eat just about anything. Don’t forget about nature. Welcome hawks and fox into your landscape. Using less pesticides and tolerating some critters, their food source, will encourage them to visit your yard. These natural pest controllers help keep the gardenmunching critters under control. And most importantly, don’t give up. A bit of persistence, variety and adaptability is the key to success. Investing some time now will not only deter existing critters from dining in your landscape, but will also reduce the risk of animals moving in next season.

Winterizing 101 : How to prepare your yard for winter Changing seasons can be tough on a lawn. Always exposed to the elements, lawns can fare especially poorly upon the arrival of winter, a season known for its harsh and unforgiving weather. Even the most perfectly manicured lawn can suffer at the hands of winter weather, causing homeowners to sit idly by and hope spring arrives that much sooner. But as punishing

as winter weather can be on a lawn, homeowners are not without recourse. Much like homeowners can take steps to help their lawns survive sizzling summer heat waves during the warmer months of the year, they also can take steps to help their lawns make it through the oftenstormy weather synonymous with winter. Don’t procrastinate. Putting off the process of winteriz-

Keep pests from haunting the house this Halloween

Rodents, bats and spiders can cause more than just a scare for homeowners

Ghosts, goblins and witches won’t be the only creatures trying to spook homeowners this Halloween. Rose Pest Solutions advises people to be on the lookout for real-life ghoulish pests lurking around neighborhoods, including rodents, bats and spiders. “As the temperature continues to drop, many of these creepy critters will seek respite from the winter chill – often within the confines our homes,” said Bob Seske Fort Wayne’s regional manager for Rose Pest Solutions “Once inside, rodents and other pests can do more than just provide their fair share of scares. They are capable of contaminating food, spreading disease and posing a threat to our property.” Rodents can spread Salmonella and Hantavirus and create fire hazards by gnawing through electrical wires in the home. Bats are frequent carriers of rabies, which is potentially fatal if left untreated, and some species of spi-

ders can administer a painful bite when disturbed. To keep these pests from haunting the house this Halloween, Rose Pest Solutions recommends the following tips: Seal any cracks or crevices with caulk and steel wool. Pay special attention to holes in the structure that lead to dark secluded areas, like attics and belfries. Screen attic vents and openings to chimneys. Install door sweeps on exterior doors and repair damaged screens. Eliminate sources of moisture, especially in crawl spaces and basements. Inspect items such as boxes, grocery bags and other packages brought into the home. Store food in airtight containers and dispose of garbage regularly. If you suspect a pest infestation in your home, contact a licensed pest professional to inspect and treat the pest problem. For more information on common household pests and how to protect your home, visit http://www.rosepest

ing a lawn can put that lawn in jeopardy. Lawns will turn dormant the closer you get to winter, and they may reject the nutrients found in fertilizer as a result. Those nutrients will prove valuable once spring weather returns, so start the winterization process in early fall so the lawn has sufficient time to absorb nutrients and strengthen itself for the seasons to come. Treat trouble spots. Summer can be even harder on a lawn than winter, especially for those lawns located in regions where heat waves and drought are common. In such instances, certain spots on the lawn seem to be hit harder than others, and those spots should get special attention when winterizing the lawn. Check the soil’s pH levels before fertilizing or applying any treatments. Such a test will reveal which spots need the most attention, and treating trouble spots now will make spring lawn care that much easier. Aerate the property. Aerating can help a lawn recover after a long summer and

help it survive the potentially harsh months that lie ahead. Aerating, which involves puncturing the soil or removing cores of soil from the ground, can restore a lawn to health by improving its drainage and allowing more water and air to reach the roots of the grass. Aerating also makes it easier for nutrients to penetrate the soil, which encourages a healthier lawn over the long haul. Aerators can be purchased or rented, but homeowners uncomfortable with the process may want to enlist a professional to tackle the job. Parents of small children who spend lots of time in the yard may need to aerate their lawn more than most, as heavy lawn traffic compresses the soil, a potentially harmful process that can be reversed via aeration. Take steps to strengthen the roots. Aerating promotes stronger roots, but homeowners might also want to find a winterizing product with potassium and phosphorous, both of which can strengthen roots. Different types of lawns will respond differently

to certain winterizers, so discuss your options with a lawn care professional who can help you find the right fit for your property. Remove debris from the lawn. Debris left on a lawn over the winter can prove very harmful. Piles of debris left scattered around a lawn can suffocate the blades of grass, leading to long-term

damage and a potentially unsightly lawn come the spring. In addition, piles of debris might make good homes for organisms that can damage the lawn. As fall moves into winter, periodically remove all debris, including leaves and branches fallen from trees. Make the lawn offlimits once the temperatures dip below

freezing. A lawn should be off-limits once the ground freezes. Stepping on grass that has frozen will leave noticeable footprints, and walking on frozen grass can kill the turf. When winter arrives, people should avoid using the lawn as a shortcut into and out of your home and stick to driveways and sidewalks instead.

Take a stake to energy vampires

With the holidays

fast approaching, use

these tips to cut back

energy use and save


Here’s something sure to get your blood boiling: even when they aren’t switched to the “on” position, energy vampires – TVs, laptops, cell phones, chargers and even coffee makers – are slowly draining electricity and money from your wallet. Together, these power-sucking appli-

ances can account for up to 20 percent of your electric bill. Vampire loads, also called phantom loads or standby power, refer to the electric power consumed by electronic appliances while they are switched off or in standby mode. According to the Department of Energy (DOE), vampire loads are responsible for approximately 5 percent of the energy consumed in the United States, costing electric customers more than $3

billion each year. “Energy vampires can be found in every room in your house,” said Rick Mifflin, Duke Energy senior residential energy efficiency manager. “Unlike fictional vampires, they don’t sleep during the day. They draw power 24 hours a day, which wastes electricity and adds cost to your power bill.” Turn off your lights at night to see where energy vampires lurk. Standby lights on electronics, such as TVs, cable boxes, DVRs and

MP3 players, are telltale signs that your power is slowly draining even though the product isn’t in use. Here are some tips that can help take a bite out of your bill: Unplug devices when you’re not using them, including adapters for battery-powered gizmos that are not connect-

ed or are fully charged. Also, set your computers and other equipment to an energy-efficient mode. Plug devices and equipment, including adapters, into power strips. This makes it easier to turn them off with a single switch. You can even buy “smart” power strips

that automatically turn off power to devices that aren’t in use. Look for the ENERGY STAR® label when purchasing new appliances. ENERGY STAR® appliances can use up to half as much energy to perform their normal duties. Avoid buying products that include

“bells and whistles” you don’t need. Some of these extra features may waste energy. For more information about residential or business efficiency tips and programs that can help you save energy and money, visit w w w . d u k e

How to winterize your pool Homeowners with pools who live in regions where winter can be harsh know they must eventually prepare their pools for the colder seasons ahead. People who live in climates not conducive to yearround outdoor swimming often find that by the cooler weather of autumn makes this season the perfect time to winterize their pools. Although closing a pool is rarely celebrated, it is a very important task. Properly winterizing a pool will reduce the likelihood of damage in the months ahead, saving homeowners from financing potentially expensive repairs. Closing the pool before trees begin to shed their leaves is a good idea, as is doing so before the arrival of the first cold stretch. Homeowners who want to get started on winterizing their pools can heed the following advice. Gather all of the

necessary equipment. To winterize your pool, you will need the pool cover, drain plugs, certain chemicals, and cleaning equipment. Have all of the tools you will need nearby so you will not be scrambling for items once you start working. Check the chemical levels in the pool. Check the pool’s chemical levels so you can create a sterile environment that won’t be overtaken by microorganisms in the water during the off-season. Many pool experts recommended ensuring the pH is at the appropriate level (7.4 - 7.8), checking the alkalinity of the water to ensure it is between 80 and 120 ppm, as well as verifying the calcium hardness is at the right level. Creating the right water environment reduces the risk that any problems will develop over the winter. Thoroughly clean the interior of the

pool. When cleaning don’t forget to remove any accessories, such as ladders, ropes, fountains, etc. Clean these items and store them in a winter-safe area. Bring up the pool chlorine to shock level. Bringing the chlorine to shock level means the pool will have a higher amount of chlorine, which is necessary to kill off any remaining algae or microorganisms in the water. Keep the water filtering and at this elevated chlorine level for a few days prior to closing the pool to ensure that there will be no algae blooms once the cover is in place and you cannot monitor the water. Drain some of the water. Depending on the type of cover you are using, and whether or not you will be using plugs to block any ports into and out of your pool, you may need to drain several inches of water to ensure that it falls below filter skimmer baskets and return jets. All water should be forced out from any hoses and internal components of the pool so that the water will not freeze and cause damage. Adhere to manufacturers’ instructions on winterizing the filter. Some filters may need to be completely drained and cleaned. Some people prefer to remove the filter pump, gaskets and hoses and store

everything in their garages for the winter. It may be possible to move smaller filters indoors. If not, covering the filter with a large, black garbage bag may protect it further from the weather. Be sure to turn off the electricity to the filter outlet at the breaker for the season. Take steps to inhibit algae growth. If desired, put a polyquat algaecide into the water and distribute it evenly to further inhibit algae growth. Install the cover per the manufacturer’s instructions and anchor it into place. It is a good idea to place a leaf net over the cover to catch any leaves as they fall so that they can easily be removed and not contribute to swampy conditions on the top of the pool cover over time. Invest in a small pump to drain water off the top of the pool cover periodically. An effective pump will prevent undue stress on the cover, ensuring it lasts longer. Pool owners who prefer less pool maintenance can hire a pool company to handle winterizing tasks for them. By following the correct steps for pool winterization, you increase the likelihood of having a nice, clean pool to look forward to next summer.

Stay safe with supplemental heating When the weather begins to grow cold, individuals turn to supplemental forms of heat for a variety of reasons. The rising cost of home ownership as well as escalating fuel prices often set people on a search for the least expensive and most efficient ways to keep comfortable during the cold weather season. Space heaters, woodburning stoves and fireplaces are among the more common and popular supplemental heating sources. The same heating sources that can be cost-effective and safe when used correctly can become hazardous when safety guidelines are not followed. The National Fire Prevention Association states that in 2010 heating equipment was involved in an estimated 57,100 reported home structure fires in the United States alone, resulting in 490 deaths, 1,540 injuries and $1.1 billion in direct property damage. These fires accounted for 16 percent of all reported home fires.

In an effort to prevent property damage or loss of life, homeowners should follow the safety guidelines that come with a supplemental heating device. Also, simple steps can prevent fire and injury. Test smoke alarms monthly to ensure they are in proper working order. Should a malfunction of a heating appliance occur or a fire start, a smoke alarm could be your first indicator of a problem. Keep anything that can burn at least 3 feet away from any heating equipment, including a furnace, a wood stove, portable space heaters, or a fireplace. Consider the use of a gate or another obstruction to keep children and pets several feet away from a space heater or another appliance that can easily be knocked over. Never use fuelburning appliances without proper room venting to the outdoors to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Fuel includes everything from wood

to gas to oil. Only use the fuel recommended by the product manufacturer. When making a fire in a stove or fireplace, never use flammable liquids to start or accelerate the fire. A wood-, pellet- or coal-burning stove should be burned very hot at least twice a day for about 30 minutes to reduce the creosote buildup in the chimney or flue. Chimneys should be professionally cleaned at the beginning of each use season to ensure there is nothing lodged within that can catch fire. Do not use an oven to heat the home while it is in the “on”position. You can leave the oven door open after cooking is finished so that residual heat can enter the kitchen, provided pets and children are kept away. Electric space heaters should be kept away from walls, curtains and furniture. Many now feature tip-over safety features that will turn the unit off should it be tipped over.

However, it is always advisable to use a space heater on a level, sturdy surface that is away from foot traffic in the room. All supplemental heating sources should be turned off or extinguished before leaving the house or going to bed. Carbon monoxide detectors should be installed in every level of the home. Install the detectors close to all bedrooms. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that cannot be detected easily. It quickly robs the body of oxygen and can be fatal when present in high amounts. Any stationery space heating equipment or HVAC system should be installed by professionals and inspected so that it adheres with local building codes. This is to ensure your safety as a homeowner. Use safety screens in front of fireplaces to prevent sparks from escaping. Make sure the damper is open every time you light a fire. Do not move a heater while it is hot

or fill it with fuel at this time, except when adding wood to a stove. Cinders and ashes should be cleaned routinely from stoves and fireplaces and stored away from the home in a heat-safe container until cool. Never position an electric heater next to a water source. Extension cords should not be used unless absolutely necessary. The cords should be heavy duty and meet the draw of the heating unit. Also, they should be run so they don’t present a tripping hazard, but also so the cords themselves do not create a combustion hazard. Children should not be allowed to touch or play near any heating appliances. Do not leave children or pets unattended in a room with a fire or space heater going. Before investing in

a heating unit, homeowners should consider adding more insulation to homes or caulking drafty windows and doors as a method to warming a home. Whether out of necessity or just to provide an added

measure of warmth to a home, many people use supplemental heating appliances frequently during the winter. Emphasizing safety when using such devices can prevent many of the fire hazards associated with these devices.


Time to prep your pets for cooler weather It’s a fall ritual to get our homes, cars and even ourselves ready for the colder weather. How many of us, though, consider the impact of the changing season on our pets? Michele Dixon, a health and nutrition specialist with Petcurean, says there are simple things we can do to keep our pets healthy and safe through the fall and winter months. Here are some that top the list: Cooler weather usually brings dry air, so using a humidifier will help to keep the nose and throat of our dogs and cats from drying out. It’s the same for their coat and skin. A dog or cat food with omega oils, like Petcurean’s GO! SENSITIVITY + SHINE, will help support a healthy coat and skin.

Choose pet-friendly ice and snow melters that won’t irritate paws or stomachs, especially if your dog or cat licks its paws after being outside. Protect your dog’s paws with a wax

product designed for this purpose by forming a dense, breathable bond, which helps prevent snow buildup during outdoor exercise. After walks, wipe away any snow or ice from your dog’s feet, legs

and belly. Poor weather and decreased daylight may cause limited visibility for drivers at night, so take extra precautions, including using a leash, when walking your pets.

Winterizing vehicles is important for drivers As fall gradually gives way to winter, vehicle owners often sigh at the thought of

driving in winter weather or spending weekday mornings clearing their vehicles

of ice before heading to the office. But manning the wheel through another snow-

storm or whittling away another night’s worth of ice from a car’s windshield are not the only rites of passage motorists must endure as cold weather returns. Winterizing a vehicle can improve vehicle performance during a time of year that, in many locales, can be especially harsh on automobiles. Low temperatures make for less than ideal conditions for engines to run, while potholes left behind by snowplows can damage a vehicle’s wheels and may even result in flat tires and a damaged suspension system. In addition, salt used to improve traction on roadways can cause rust. Short of moving to a locale with mild winters, there’s little drivers can do to pro-

tect their vehicles from harsh winter weather. But winterizing a vehicle can prevent some of the more common issues drivers may encounter when the temperatures dip below freezing. Take time out for your tires. Winter weather can limit traction, putting the safety of drivers and their passengers in jeopardy. When possible, avoid driving in the snow, and steer clear of roads where ice and black ice are known to form. While such measures can greatly reduce your risk of being in an accident, you likely can’t avoid driving entirely come the winter. Drivers who want improved traction from their tires throughout the winter can purchase winter tires for their vehicles. Such tires can more effectively handle roads that are covered in snow and ice than all-season tires. Another way to improve traction during the winter months is to constantly monitor tire pressure, which decreases more rapidly when the weather is cold. Properly inflated tires provide better traction and protect against damage that may occur when driving over potholes. Consider low-viscosity oil in the winter. The owner’s manual of your vehicle may recommend you use a lower viscosity motor

• • • • • • • •

oil to counter the dip in temperature that’s synonymous with winter. When the temperatures outside fall, the oil inside your vehicle thickens, and thicker oil won’t circulate through the engine as well. This can cause engine problems because the engine won’t be adequately lubricated. Low-viscosity oil is naturally thinner, so it may improve lubrication throughout the winter. The vehicle owner’s manual should recommend oils based on climate. If not, talk to your mechanic about changing from the oil you use throughout the year to a low-viscosity alternative during the winter. Inspect your vehicle before winter arrives. No one wants to be out on the road during the first snowstorm of the year only to discover certain components are not working properly. Belts and hoses, while durable, can be put through strenuous conditions during the winter months, so a close inspection of belts and hoses should be conducted in late fall. In addition, windshield wipers are especially important in winter, when snowfall can drastically impact visibility. You will want your wipers working at full capacity once the winter begins so replace older wipers (shelf life for standard wipers is typically one year) and use a de-icing windshield washer fluid to

maximize visibility. Another component that must be inspected is your car’s battery. Many drivers have experienced a dead battery, which, in warm weather, is more of a nuisance than a health concern. In cold weather, a dead battery can threaten your health if you find yourself stranded in cold weather. Especially low temperatures can compromise a battery’s power by as much as 50 percent, so have your battery inspected in late fall and replace it if need be. Don’t be caught off guard. Part of winterizing a vehicle is being prepared if the vehicle breaks down. Make sure you have extra washer fluid in your vehicle’s trunk, and don’t forget to include an ice scraper, snowbrush or even a snow shovel in the trunk as well. A snow shovel may be necessary if you need to dig your car out if it’s been buried somewhere other than your driveway. Other items to carry in your trunk include a blanket, a change of clothes, an extra hat, an extra pair of gloves, some nonperishable food, and a few bottles of water. Winter can be especially harsh on automobiles. But drivers can take several preventive steps to ensure their vehicle is safe and sound on the roads this winter.

Wabash Emergency Management Program rated best in state Assistant director awarded Professional Emergency Management Certification by Ashley Flynn Wabash County is in good hands. The county’s Emergency M a n a g e m e n t Program was recently awarded E m e r g e n c y M a n a g e m e n t Program of the Year by the State of Indiana. They scored a 352 out of 396 on an assessment that made them number one in the state out of 92 departments, lead-

ing by seven points. “We knew we were in the hunt,” EMA Director Bob Brown said when asked if he was surprised about the award. “Anything over 300 usually puts you in the top 10 percent.” The points system is tied to grants the department receives from the Department of Homeland Security, which requires them to score at least a 50 percent. More good news from the Emergency M a n a g e m e n t Program is that Assistant Director Keith Walters received a Professional E m e r g e n c y

M a n a g e m e n t Certification. He is the only person in the county with this certification, and one of 22 people statewide to receive it this year. Walters had to complete 200 hours of training, write a 1,500-word essay, have six professional contributions to emergency management in the community and pass a 100question test to receive his certification. The certification must be renewed every five years, which requires 200 additional hours of training.

A seasoned hunter shares experience with first-timer... continued from front page

hunts from a deer stand up in a tree, but since I would be tagging along, he decided a ground blind would be safest. We arrived at the location, a private property field near Salamonie Reservoir, around 4:30 p.m., and approximately 30 minutes later, the first deer appeared. A doe and her fawn stepped out into the recently harvested bean field to eat, and we just watched. It was the closest Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been to a deer, and the first time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d heard them make noise, which was a low grunting. Uncle Tim did not get his bow ready to shoot. We both just watched as they jumped around, and then they were starring right at us. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure if I should move or if the deer could see me starring back through the small window. The doe and fawn went back to eating, and then looked back at us in the ground blind. They starred a few moments before taking off into the woods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shoot a doe when they have a fawn with them,â&#x20AC;? Uncle Tim told me. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complain. Although I had come to hunt, I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure how I would feel if we actually killed a deer. Those were the only deer we saw that evening. We waited another hour until just after six. By that time, the temperature had dropped enough to make my toes go a little numb. We hopped back into Uncle Timâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s truck and drove around Salamonie, spotting quite a few deer out in the fields and stopping to admire some bucks. Although we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much luck bow hunting, Uncle Tim was just glad we got to see some deer. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much daylight, which is why he usually goes in the mornings, but for my sake, we went in the evening. Uncle Tim has been hunting for 38 years, and bow hunting is his favorite. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so up close and personal with a bow,â&#x20AC;? Uncle Tim said.

TIM YOHE ENTERS A GROUND BLIND he set up a few days prior. Although he usually hunts from a tree stand, he decided a ground blind would be safer for taking his niece on a hunt. (photo by Ashley Flynn) Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been hunting in that specific field for about 35 years, and shot over a dozen from just one tree stand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I prefer them to be 30 yards and in with a bow, but it can be done in 40-50 yards if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re confident about it. Most of mine have been under 10 yards,â&#x20AC;? Uncle Tim said. Sometimes he spends a whole day out hunting. He packs drinks and sandwiches and enjoys the serenity of nature. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good way to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. It makes you unwind and slow down,â&#x20AC;? he said. Many hunters bring books on their trips, but Uncle Tim just likes to watch and listen. He takes deer calls and antlers with him to lure deer in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It breaks the m o n o t o n y . Sometimes you can make it happen with the calls.â&#x20AC;? Uncle Tim has been hunting since he was a teenager. His older brother, the late David Yohe,

hunted, and so did many of his friends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just caught on. I started hunting squirrel and rabbit and now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mostly deer and turkey. I read magazines and books, and it was a lot of trial and error,â&#x20AC;? he said. Although heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s killed mostly deer with his bow, he has also shot a black bear up in Canada, which was made into a rug, and a few wild boars. In recent years, Uncle Tim has had to cut back on hunting. He had surgery in 2008 and another in 2010, which has taken a toll on his physical health. He still hunts about 1-2 deer a year, and enjoys eating it prepared in basically the same way you cook beef, such as steaks on the grill and in a pot roast. Uncle Tim also hunts with guns.

Veteran’s Day service at Congregational Christian Church

The Congregational Christian Church will honor veterans and their families during their worship services on Sunday, Nov. 10 at 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m.

Veterans and their guests are invited to attend this special day in the life of our country and community. Those present will be invited to stand and

share the branch of the military and tour of duty in which they served. Afterward, the families of those who have served, either presently or in the

past, will be invited to stand so that their loved ones may be honored. A time of hospitality will be offered between services, as guests will be invited to stay for a breakfast of biscuits and gravy. The Sunday school class of Alberta Giegold is seeking

addresses of military personnel for their letter writing campaign. Mrs. Giegold has led the Congregational Christian Church in writing letters to soldiers throughout the world. Over the past 12 years more than 85 soldiers have received letters written weekly by the students in her

class. Children and adults share news of everyday life and encouragement to the men and women who serve our country. They welcome addresses of all service personal serving at any location. Please contact the church with the name and address of soldiers

who would enjoy a letter from home. The North M a n c h e s t e r Congregational Christian Church is located at 310 N. Walnut Street, N. Manchester. Contact the church office with any questions at 260982-2882.

For over 90 years, Buddy Poppies have been a part of Veterans Day. When members of the community donate to a veteran and proudly wear their Buddy Poppy, they are part of a tradition stretching back to 1922. WWI Veterans began passing out Poppies made in VA hospitals by crippled Veterans of the “War To End All Wars” as part of their p h y s i c a l therapy. More generations of veterans are still assembling poppie in at least four VA hospitals. Hospitalized veterans are paid to assemble poppies as part of their therapy. The national Veterans of Foreign Wars headquarters buys these poppies and distributes them to the state organizations. Local

Lady Knight’s season ends at semi-state

by Gary Andrews It was not the day the Southwood Lady Knight volleyball team had hoped for. Just three days after winning their sixth straight regional title, the Knights were playing Woodlan in the second game of the Bremen semistate Saturday, Nov. 2. Battling some health issues and a much taller Woodlan front line, the Warriors dominated the net as they hit over the Knight defense, ending the Southwood season 10-25, 23-25, 2624, 10-25. Lexi Brickner and Drew Rhamy would get kills early for the Knights as they held a 2-1 lead before the Warriors would take control. Woodlan scored three straight, when Sami White stopped the mini run to make it 3-4. At that point, the Warriors would feed the tall front row, scoring nine straight points to take a 13-3 lead that

the Knights could never recover from. Woodlan would have a four-point and a fivepoint run down the stretch, as they defeated Southwood 10-25. Again, Southwood would take a 2-1 lead in game two, this time behind two kills from Kaitlyn Murphy. With the game tied at 5, the Warriors would go on a mini run, scoring five straight to take a 5-10 lead. Lexi Brickner, Sarah Peters and Kaitlyn Murphy would connect on three straight kills to cut the Woodlan lead to 8-10. They kept the margin at two until 13-15, when Brickner would get a kill and a block ,and with a Drew Rhamy ace, the Knights led 17-16. Woodlan would respond, scoring five of the next six game points to open an 18-21 lead when the Knights answered again. Murphy and Rhamy would get kills as the Knights scored three

to knot the game at 21. Down 21-22, Sami White would score on a tip, followed by a Rhamy kill, and Southwood led 23-22. The Warriors responded by scoring the last three points of the game to win game two 23-25, leading the match 0-2. Things looked bleak for the Knights early in game three as Woodlan raced out to a 1-5 lead. The Knights would respond with an ace from Rhamy and a kill from Murphy to cut the lead to 6-8. The much taller Warriors would then find the right rotation at the net, and they built their lead to 10-16. Rhamy, White and Emilie Harnish would get kills as the Knights kept it close and trailed 16-21, when they made their move. Kaitlyn Murphy would get a kill, a block and two more kills to cut the Woodlan lead to 20-21, and it was game on.

THE SOUTHWOOD LADY KNIGHTS WON THEIR sixth-straight regional championship on Oct. 30. Their season ended at Semi-State in Bremen. (photo by Gary Andrews) Woodlan would score three of the next four points, having Southwood on the ropes, leading 21-24, when the Knights made one more push. Lexi Brickner would record a kill that was followed by a tip from Sami White to make it 23-24. Two Warrior errors gave Southwood a 25-24 lead when Brickner got a block to end

game three 26-24. The Knights were back in it. As often happens in volleyball games, one run can make the difference. For most of the season the Knights were the one issuing a run. In game four, Southwood was on the receiving end. Trailing 6-7, Woodlan would go on a 10-0 run that all but did the Knights in to take a

17-6 lead and ended the game with a 6-0 run to win game four 10-25 and the Southwood season. Lexi Brickner had 1 service point, 7 kills, 4 blocks, and 4 digs. Sami White had 10 service points, 7 kills, 18 assist, 1 block, and 9 digs. Bailey Hobbs had 2 service points, 2 digs. Sarah Peters had 3 service points, 3 kills, 9 digs, and 1

block. Kaitlyn Murphy had 10 kills, 1 block, and 1 assist. Emilie Harnish had 3 service points, 1 ace, 1 kill, and 4 digs. Amy Bowman had 1 service point, 5 kills, 17 assist, 2 blocks, 9 digs. Drew Rhamy had 9 service points, 2 aces, 8 kills, and 11 digs. Southwood’s final record was 26-11 7-0 TRC.

Halderman earns AllState honors by Gary Andrews Northfield junior Jenna Halderman had a day she will remember for life Saturday, Nov. 2. Halderman was running in the cross country state finals for the third time in her career, this time finding the podium as she ran an 18:29 to finish 13th. The top 20 runners earned All-State honors. “At the start I’m going to get out with the front pack and then run my race from there,” said Halderman before the race. Jenna did just that, finishing just six seconds out of 10th place and 23 seconds from the top 5. Manchester’s Matthew Fahs-Brown also ran in the state finals, finishing 60th in the boys race in a time of 16:27 to cap off a fantastic junior season.

Knights one step closer to sectional title

by Gary Andrews The Southwood football team took on Southern Wells Friday for the second time this season, with the stakes a lot higher the second time around. The Knights beat Southern Wells 29-22 in the first game of the season on Aug. 23, but Friday night a win would put Southwood in the sectional championship game. Leading 7-0 after the first quarter, the Knights put the gas pedal to the floor in route to a 42-22 win and will host South Adams Friday, Nov. 8. Southern Wells tried to catch the Knights off guard on the opening kickoff, pooching a kick that the Knights recovered. The Knight offense would put Southern Wells’ defense with their backs to the wall right away when they fumbled on the second play, giving the ball to the Raiders on the 46. The defense would respond, forcing a three and out. With the ball on the 11, the Knights would go to the run game with Nathan Hollars chewing up yards. Robbie Cole would then hit Danny Goff to the Raider 5, with Cole running it in from 5 yards out to give the Knights a 7-0 lead with 5:38 remaining. Southern Wells would then move the ball themselves, marching to the Southwood 20 when Brett Wyatt recovered a fumble to stall the drive. The teams would trade possessions to end the quarter with the raiders moving the ball again and Southwood leading 7-0. On the first play of the second quarter, Danny Goff would pick off a Raider pass to stop another drive. On Southwood’s second possession of the quarter the Knights moved the ball to the Raider 12 where they were forced to attempt a field goal that was blocked. With Southern Wells having the ball deep in their own territory the Knights would capitalize. On a monster hit by a host of Knights, Nathan

Hollars would pick up a fumble and race 19 yards for a touchdown and Southwood led 140 with 5:04 on the clock. Southern Wells would strike on the second play of their next possession with a 47 yard pass play, going for two and failing, cutting the Knight lead to 14-6. The rest of the half would be all Southwood, as they would strike twice in less than two minutes. With Cole finding Jackson Blair twice, the Knights moved down the field, with Cole scoring from 3yds out with 1:37 left to lead 21-6. Southern Wells would start on their own 15 after the kick off. With a run stop and a sack from Jake Smith, the Knights were using time outs. On third down, Austin Schlemmer would pick off a Raider pass, taking it to the 15. Three plays later Cole found Blair in the back of the end zone and just like that the Knights led 28-6 at the half. After scoring just 7 points in the first quarter, then exploding for 21 in the second, the third quarter was like watching a yo-yo as the string was short on the scoring end. The Knight offense struggled, not putting a point on the board. Their defense rose to the occasion, holding Southern Wells scoreless as Southwood still led 286 with a quarter to go. With 10:50 left in the fourth quarter the Knights would put to rest any thought of a Southern Wells comeback. After a 10 yard pass to Jackson Blair and a 15 yard pass to Zach Ball ended the third quarter, the Knights were off and running. Cole would feed Nathan Hollars on three straight hand offs with Hollars taking it in from 12 yards out to give Southwood a 35-6 lead. The Raiders would respond just 46 seconds later on a 61yard scoring pass and the track meet was on. After an onside kick from Southern Wells that they touched too soon, the Knights were off and running

With the ball on the Raider 38, Cole would connect with Blair who raced for the end zone, scoring his second touchdown of the night, to give Southwood a 42-14 lead with 7:18 to go. The Raiders would come right back. On

three plays Southern Wells moved the ball 66 yards to score with 6:21 left to make it 4222. After a Raider onside kick was recovered by Austin Schlemmer, the Knights would work on the clock, running 7 plays before being

forced to punt with 1:06 left. Playing with pride, the Knight defense stuffed the Raiders on two plays, with the clock running out for the 42-22 win. For the night, Robbie Cole was 11 for 16 for 209 yards, two

touchdowns. Nathan Hollars carried the ball 39 times for 202 yards, two touchdowns. John Berlier four times for 22 yards. Jackson Blair had five catches for 105 yards, 2 touchdowns. Keaton Weiss had three catches for

54-yards, Danny Goff, Zach Ball and Nathan Hollars had one catch each. Robbie Cole had two rushing touchdowns. Southwood will now host South Adams for the sectional title Friday.

Caboose is cut loose: the museum’s new exhibit

A CONCEPTUAL SKETCH SHOWS THE FUTURE PLANS for the area surrounding the caboose. The museum intends to add trees and a shelter to make the space resemble an old train stop, complete with silhouettes, which may even resemble local celebrities. The museum hopes to someday add a locomotive to complete the outdoor exhibit. (photo by Eric Stearley)

THE CABOOSE IS LOWERED TO MEET ITS WHEELS next to the museum parking lot. This is not the first time Gaunt & Son has moved the caboose. Twenty years ago, they moved it from Peggy McCallen’s Cass Street store, The Depot, to the McCallen farm. “The first time we were a lot younger and it didn’t scare us as much,” said Gaunt & Son’s Mark Sorg. “We just picked it up and moved it like it was nothing. We were a lot more careful this time.”(photo by Eric Stearley)

THE WABASH COUNTY HISTORICAL MUSEUM’S NEW CABOOSE is lifted off of a semi trailer by a team from Gaunt & Son Asphalt before being lowered onto its wheels on the train track at it’s new home on the museum’s west side Tuesday, Oct. 29. Former Wabash City Mayor Robert McCallen and his wife, Peggy, donated the caboose, which has sat at their farm for the last 20 years. The museum plans to restore the caboose with the help of the Saw Dust Gang, Quality Electric, and others. It will be part of a new outdoor exhibit. (photo by Eric Stearley)

ROBERT AND PEGGY MCCALLEN pose in front of their caboose which now sits beside the Wabash County Historical Museum. During McCallen’s service as mayor, the city bought the building that now houses the museum. Plans for an outdoor exhibit have been in the works since the museum’s opening, but financial limitations have always gotten in the way. With the donation of the caboose and the generous contributions of the organizations and businesses working to restore it, the outdoor exhibit has finally been realized. “We wanted other children to be able to enjoy the caboose like our grandchildren and greatgrandchildren have,” said Peggy. “A lot of kids probably don’t even know what a caboose is these days. They don’t make them anymore.”(photo by Harold Chatlosh)

Libby Miller, 101 Oldest member of Wabash Friends Church

++) +1""-0& "

Feb. 4, 1912 – Nov. 3, 2013 Elizabeth H. “Libby” Miller, 101 years and 9 months, peacefully departed this life on Sunday, Nov. 3, surrounded by her family. Libby was born Feb. 4, 1912 to Henry and Rosa Catherine (Hipskind) Stouffer. She married E. Woodrow ‘Woody” Miller on May 19, 1940. Libby lived her entire life in rural Wabash County, and graduated from Linlawn High School in 1930, where she played center on the girls’ basketball team. She graduated from International Business College in Fort Wayne, and was employed as a secretarial assistant to Mark Honeywell at the time he was planning the Honeywell Center. She later worked at Markhon. She had the honor of being the oldest member of the Wabash Friends Church where, for many years, she enjoyed singing in the choir and participating in the Linlawn Missionary Society. She was also a member of the first 4-H Club established in Wabash County. In addition to her homemaking skills, she was a passionate clothes designer, and avid seamstress and doll collector, adopting over 300 “orphaned” dolls, repairing and dressing them in costumes of her own design and creation, and frequently giving them to needy children. She was inspired by our rural landscape to write poetry, and she loved spending time with family and friends, hosting many large family gatherings. Her flower and vegetable gardens were her pride and joy. She loved to play the piano and sing with her family, and enjoyed a great sense of humor. She left many friends and family, including two sisters, Frances Stewart, Monon; and Ruth Barnett, North Manchester; and a sister-in-law Alice Stouffer, Wabash; her daughters Beth (Dave) Purcell, Kirkwood, Mo.; Susan Fagin, Wabash; Marianne Poston Briscoe, Roann; and her son, Dan (Marilyn) Miller, Wabash; grandchildren Megan (Larry) Kiml, Rock Springs, Wyo.; Jody Purcell, El Paso, Texas; Erica Purcell, Aspen, Colo.; Brian (Janet) Evans, Lagro; Trent (Diane) Miller, Wabash; Elizabeth (Lisa Mackie) Fagin, Brooklyn, N.Y.; Adam (Anne Clinton) Fagin, Silver Spring, Md.; Brad Miller, Wabash; Matthew (Jessica) Miller, Johnstown, Colo.; Andrew Miller, Los Angeles, Cali.; Ian (Candy) Poston, North Manchester; Seth (Emily) Poston, North Manchester; and 11 great-grandchildren: Madyson Evans, Layne Evans, Zachary Miller, Theo Fagin-Mackie, Nigel Fagin, Desmond T. Fagin, Brett Miller, Khloe Miller, Rory Ann Poston, Holden Poston, Evelyn Poston, and five step-grandchildren: Austin Faust, Damien Ashba, Daryn Yentes, Natalie Lewis and Nicole Lewis. In addition, she leaves many nieces and nephews, cousins, wonderful friends, and the loving staffs of Skilled Care and Miller’s Merry Manor, who became an important part of her family. She was preceded in death by her parents; her beloved husband, her eldest son, Thomas W. Miller, three sisters, Alice Myers Petry, Katherine Vrooman and Velma Mae Stouffer; two brothers, Joseph Stouffer and Robert Stouffer; and three infant great-grandchildren. Libby’s life of service to others and her Christian faith serve as a fine example to her family and friends, and she will be sorely missed. Visitation will be on Wednesday from 4-8 p.m. at Grandstaff-Hentgen Funeral Home, 1241 Manchester Avenue, Wabash. A celebration of her life will be held on Thursday, at 2 p.m. at the Wabash Friends Church. Preferred memorials are 85 Hope, P.O. Box 27, Wabash, IN 46992 or the Friends Church.

Indiana Extension Homemakers Association turns 100 by Kalie Ammons In January of 1913, a group of people who believed in “the present and its opportunities, in the future and its promises [and] in everything that makes life large and lovely” came together to create the Indiana Home Economics Association. Fiftythree years later, the group changed their name to the Indiana E x t e n s i o n Homemaker’s Association, and they still hold true to these values. The group has learned practical lessons from the start. Common lessons years ago were hat making, sewing, butter churning and operation on a budget. New lessons consist of: the use of credit/debit/gift cards, ID theft and account fraud, foods the healthy way, and human development. Wabash County EH Clubs were organized in 1923. Currently, there are four active clubs and one associate club, including Happy Homemaker’s, (continued on page 34)

Field day planned and new conservation practices installed at the Wabash County Farm by Nan Hammel ISDA Resource Specialist The Wabash County Soil & Water Conservation District will host a field day at the Wabash County Farm on Thursday, Nov. 14 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The focus of the field day will be cover crops and the new conservation practices that have been installed at the Wabash County Farm. Jamie Scott will be there to talk about cover crops and the County Farm cover crop plot in the field south of the lane. Jamie and his family are the owners and operators of J.A. Scott Farms in Kosciusko County near Pierceton, Ind. He and his family have coordinated cover crop aerial seeding in an eight-county area for the last three years, resulting in

servation practices at the farm. In the field south of the lane, a drainage water management system has been installed. The main tile runs along the lane with five laterals running south to north into the main. The water control structure is located at the east end of the field before the main drainage tile outlets into the small wetland area by the barn. AgriDrain and Fratco donated the water control structure and drainage tile for this project. In the larger field to the North of the lane, a system of four water and sediment control basins, or Wascobs, is being installed. They are farmable earthen ridges that pool surface water and any eroding sediment along gullying areas in field. Each ridge

16,000 planted acres. Scot Haley, the NRCS Northeast Area Resource Soil Scientist, will be there to cover the topic of soil health as we look at different soil pits on the property. Andrew Pursifull, an NRCS A g r i c u l t u r a l Engineer from the Huntington Technical Service Team, will present on the design of the drainage water management system installed at the County Farm. After the Wabash County Farm was selected as a Conservation Cropping Systems Initiative regional training hub farm last year, the Wabash County Soil and Water Conservation District Board and the C o u n t y Commissioners decided to fund the installation of some new con-

Indiana Extension Homemakers Association turns 100... continued from page 33 K o u n t r y Kaleidoscope, Liberty Bells, Richvalley and Riverside. The clubs make an effort to volunteer as much as possible. The clubs have served for Bloodmobile, Riley Hospital, Relay for Life, Helping Hands, the 4-H Fair, museums, the Clean Water Project, Shop with a Cop and many more. The IEHA is present-

ly involved with the Cancer Research Endowment Fund. After learning Purdue University had a cancer research center, committee members wanted to make a difference. IEHA started an endowment fund, and every cent of the money raised goes to cancer research. In 2010, the association set a five-year goal to raise $100,000

statewide. To date, IEHA has reached approximately $80,000. The state of Indiana is divided into nine districts. Leaders in Wabash County are: Mary Ruth Mendenhall, Diana Woodward, Jane Long, Cindy Beard, Ellie Draper, Linda Landis, Lori Miller, CeCe Wood, Bonita Kirtlan, Jean Sneed, Janet Pattee and Ruth Dyson.

Teresa Witkoske is the Extension Educator. The late Joyce Brewer was also an E x t e n s i o n Homemakers Leader and the only Wabash County member to hold the office of IEHA president. The association is always welcoming new members. If interested, call 260-563-0661 ext. 1408 or contact an officer.

people of Indiana. The General Assemblyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent revision of the criminal code, House Enrolled Act 1006 (HEA 1006), implements many positive changes, but there is more work to be done. HEA 1006 dramatically reduces penalties for drug dealing and manufacturing. Penalties for some of the worst drug crimes are reduced by approximately 80 percent. For instance, a meth manufacturer facing 15 actual years in prison under current law will, under HEA 1006, face only three actual years in prison. The drug dealing penalty reductions are concerning. Over 1,700 meth labs were seized last year in Indiana, with 372 of those having children

meth labs and have filed numerous drugdealing cases. In fact, a substantial number of high-level criminal cases being filed in the Wabash Circuit Court are either directly or indirectly related to drug dealing or manufacturing. Sadly, drug abuse has had deadly consequences in our community. Over the last several years Wabash County has had numerous deaths from drug overdoses from substances such as heroin, morphine, prescription medication, etc. (not to mention all the individuals saved by Wabash County paramedics/EMTs who have administered Narcan to overdose patients). Indianaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s criminal code must adequately penalize

the dangerous and destructive behavior of drug dealing and manufacturing or these trends are likely to continue or worsen. Prosecutors appreciate the difficult task of the legislature in crafting criminal code reforms. As we move forwards toward the coming yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legislative session, I will be advocating for critical improvements in HEA 1006, most notably in the area of drug dealing and manufacturing.

present. Over 1,200 meth labs were seized through August of this year, with over 300 having children present. Madison County led the nation in 2012 in meth lab seizures. In addition, we have seen a rapid increase in heroin use and dealing across the country, in Indiana in particularly. Heroin seizures are up nearly 50 percent across the state with Interstate 65 being a central corridor. The majority of abused and neglected children live in homes were substance abuse takes place. State and national trends can be seen in Wabash County as well. Our county had 14 meth lab seizures last year. As of October of this year, we have seized 17
