Now is the time for seniors to review their Medicare coverage, but that is often a daunting process. Seniors with Medicare can compare and change their Medicare plan from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7. The new benefits in 2012 include continued help with the coverage gap (“doughnut hole”), help with longterm care costs, better coordination of care and ways to manage your health information online. To bring clarity to the challenge of reviewing your Medicare coverage, there are trained and unbiased SHIP counselors at the Dallas L. Winchester Senior Center by appointment. Wabash County residents that would like to review or change their Medicare plan can make an appointment by calling the Winchester Senior Center at 260-563-4475, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. The appointments fill up fast and so seniors are encouraged to call as soon as possible to book appointments.

Proudly Serving Wabash County Since 1977

Public health nurse retires after 25 years of service to the community Jane Skeans relives episodes of her employment including a measles outbreak, a nursing strike and one extraordinary family reunion. by Danielle Smith DSmith

After 25 years of being known by Wabash children as “The Shot Lady”, Jane Skeans retired from her position as public health nurse at the Wabash County Health Department. Jane’s employment in the healthcare field began with jobs at Marion General Hospital and Vernon Manor. “The health officer at the time was my good friend and the nurse quit and I applied for the job,” Jane recalls. “He called the next day and said ‘Can you give a shot?’ I said ‘Yes, sir, I can.” She went in for an interview and was

hired on the spot. As public health nurse, Jane’s responsibilities included giving immunizations, performing disease investigations and answering questions. Although her core responsibilities remained the same, many aspects of her position evolved over the years. “When I first started, we had about three vaccines that we gave,” she said. “Now it’s about 14 or 15. It has really grown.” Jane also recounted the 1992 measles outbreak, which brought about the system of immunizing students at their schools rather than having them all come to the Health Department. “There was a measles outbreak in 1992, and so the fifthgraders were getting a second MMR. I had college kids, kindergarteners and fifthgraders all coming in at the last minute in August just before school started,” she

“THE SHOT LADY” JANE SKEANS served as public health nurse for Wabash County for 25 years. During that time, she was reunited with her brother after 57 years apart. In 1992, she facilitated the process of immunizing students in the schools as opposed to at the Health Department.

Hospital Gala to feature Wabash County Has Talent For the first time, the Wabash County Hospital Foundation will feature a Wabash County Has Talent competition at its Gala fundraiser on Nov. 12 at the Honeywell Center. “We have an exciting line-up of performances for the Gala’s first ever Wabash County Has Talent competition,” said Foundation Director Karen Newhouse. “We decided to alternate the talent competition with Dancing with the

Stars, which will return next year. By alternating, we hope to showcase a wide range of talent and increase participation. “The Foundation appreciates the performers’ willingness to support the hospital and their community by contributing their time and talent. As result, we have four fabulous performances to entertain guests and help strengthen our fundraising for a very worthy cause.”

Proceeds of all Gala activities will help purchase a high-definition, narrow-band endoscopy system for the hospital’s surgery department. The new system will greatly enhance imaging of minimally invasive procedures such as colonoscopies, and help diagnose diseases in the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract. The performers will include: - A select group of the Wabash County YMCA staff will per-

form an exhilarating display of expressive movements that will captivate and inspire their audience of young and old alike. Performers are Bill Barrows, Patty Godfroy, Clint Kugler, Shelly Ruch and Jill Vigar. While the performance type is being kept a secret, it will be quite entertaining for all. The YMCA group is sponsored by Beauchamp and McSpadden. Manchester College Theater will perform, featuring

students Nikki Glassley, Laura Kramer and Matthew Winger. The students are actors in the college’s fall play production of Back to Eden and will perform a segment of the dramedy. They are sponsored by David and Sandra Haist. - The George Berg Quartet and WCH are partnering for a unique, musical performance with a bit of surgical humor. The quarter consists of Jim Flack, Steve Hentgen, Tim

Keaffaber and Alan Palmer. The hospital’s performers are surgery tech Chad Crites, Dr. Rose Wenrich and anesthesiologists Dr. Jared Coffman and Dr. Sam Khan. Their sponsor is Miller’s Merry Manor. - The Wabash chapter of Tri-Kappa will have 16 members performing: Donna Beck, Reta Coburn, Peggy Cordes, Deb Culver, Marilyn CusterMitchell, Lisa Fadil, Sharon Hall, Lisa Keaffaber, Paula (continued on page 7)

As the Wabash County Historical Museum celebrates the fifth anniversary of its opening, an anonymous donor has made a challenge grant for $10,000. According to Tracy Stewart, executive director of the museum, “This donor wants to challenge us and the community to raise $10,000 for the museum’s annual operating fund drive that is going on right now. If we raise this money before Oct. 31, the donor will match it, dollar for dollar, with a gift of $10,000.” President of the board of directors, Lee Ann George, said, “We need this gift to contin-

ue the work that we do at the museum, bring programming to the community and allow county school groups to visit at no cost. I encourage everyone to get send their donations now — before Oct. 31. There aren’t very many opportunities these days to know that your money will be doubled, certainly not in today’s economy.” “We’re so proud of what we’ve accomplished with the help of our donors,” said Stewart. “It is important to say again that we get less than five percent of our budget from the county government. Although the word ‘county’ is in our

name, that refers only to our mission, not to who pays the bills. We are grateful to the county for their contribution, but we depend much more on generous individuals and businesses who take the opportunity to preserve Wabash County history.” To donate to the museum’s annual operating fund, send checks or money orders payable to the Wabash County Historical Museum to 36 E.

Banks (R-Columbia City) said applications for the full-time, spring semester, Senate internships — including legislative and communications opportunities — are available online at A resume, two reference letters, college transcripts and a writing sample are required submissions. All complete applications are due Oct. 31. “This is a fantastic opportunity for college students and recent graduates,”

Banks said. “The Senate Majority Caucus internship program not only teaches students the legislative process inside and out but can lead to so many future endeavors.” Legislative interns work alongside senators and legislative assistants, responding to constituent calls, letters and emails, as well as staffing Senate committees and assisting with floor proceedi n g s . Communications interns gain practical experience, helping press secretaries prepare and distribute news releases, guest columns, letters to the editor, direct mail, e-

newsletters, e-invitations, web updates, radio feeds, podcasts and video productions. Banks suggested Senate interns plan to live in or near Indianapolis during the internship due to the varied work schedule during the legislative session. Interns earn a $700 biweekly stipend to assist with living expenses. Selected applicants are invited to attend the General Assembly’s ceremonial Organization Day on Nov. 22 and officially begin their internships with a mandatory orientation on Dec. 27.

this legislative session, which by law is scheduled to end on or before March 14, 2012. Banks said college credit for the internship varies, depending on individual schools’ internship policies. Interested students should meet with school academic advisors to determine academic credits available. To maintain full-time student status, interns frequently arrange correspondence or independent courses. A three-credit-hour state government course, conducted at the Statehouse throughout the internship, is also available. At the end of each year’s legislative session, Verizon Communications offers a $3,000 scholarship to the top intern from each caucus — Republican and D e m o c r a t . Additionally, each caucus awards a $1,000 scholarship in memory of longtime Senate staffer Rick Gudal. Banks said interested college students should contact Jennifer Carlton, Senate majority intern director, by email at, for more information about internships with the Indiana Senate Republicans.

Wabash Fire Department thanks the community

Dear editor, The Wabash City Fire Department’s Fill the Boot campaign here in Wabash recently was a huge success. Over the course of the three days, firefighters stationed at various businesses collected $3,246.95 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. In the 10 years since 2001, the Wabash Fire Department has raised a total of $40,065.95 for the M.D.A. The Wabash Fire Department would like to thank all the citizens that gave to this great organization. The monies received are in whole turned over to the Fort Wayne District M.D.A. Office. One of the many programs that M.D.A. offers is that children serve by M.D.A. are able to spend a fun-filled week at camp, all

Happening Here. As a nurse, Kim Waggoner is in tune to other people’s healthcare needs. Early in 2010, Kim became concerned with her personal health issue when she began experiencing unusual swelling in her lymph nodes. Kim visited with her OB/GYN Dr. Caitlyn Ryser who began observing Kim’s symptoms. As the swelling persisted and she developed additional swelling and breathing issues, Kim visited Dr. Sharon Rooney-Gandy who performed a groin biopsy. Following a second opinion at IU Medical Center, Kim was diagnosed at both facilities as having stage IV Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. The disease is non-curable while highly treatable. “I had heard wonderful things about Dr. Goksel, about his medical expertise in the field of cancer care. I also went to the big city hospital for an assessment. The experience was like comparing night and day. I chose Dr. Goksel as he takes time and carefully answered my list of questions. I felt comfortable with him and the staff at the KCH Cancer Care Center being so close to home,” she said. Kim was treated at the Center in 2010 and is currently on a maintenance treatment schedule. Kim wants to encourage women to listen to their bodies and not wait to see a doctor when sensing something isn’t right.

Dear editor, Last Aug. 14, a terrible head-on collision occurred at CR 1000 N and SR 15. This stretch of highway has been the scene of many accidents. Because of the hills, this is a no-passing zone. The speed limit through this area is 55 miles per hour traveling south. It is especially dangerous as you are approaching Lukens Lake Road. If a vehicle has just turned onto your lane and you are

going the speed limit, you are going to overtake it in a matter of seconds. Reaction time is limited. The State of Indiana Department of Transportation was notified at the time of the last accident of the need for safety precautions at this site. Currently nothing has been done to alert drivers to the danger here. So this is a story of Death: Death lurks at CR 1000 N and SR 15. He knows this is a danger-

ous stretch of highway and he has stolen many lives here. He doesn’t even need the influence of drugs and alcohol because everything else is in his favor. It is just getting dark; it is the perfect time for him. He knows there are still no caution lights, no warning signs at the crossroads and no reduce speed signs. All he needs to do is wait patiently and the “participants” will eventually show up. He notices three vehicles approaching the intersection of SR 15 and CR 1000 N. He knows that, because of the hill, they won’t see him, and it will be too late for them to stop if they are going the speed limit. Two vehicles are traveling on SR 15. One is approaching from the North, the other from the South. A third vehicle is approaching from Lukens Lake Road. He estimates all three participants should arrive at approximately the same time. He watches as the accident unfolds. The vehicle coming from the Lukens Lake Road is turning south onto SR 15. Death knows

you can’t see beyond the hill. The driver is turning simultaneously as the other southbound participants, a mother and her son and the family dog, crest the hill traveling the speed limit of 55 miles per hour. She doesn’t have time to stop to avoid a collision with the car in front of her, so she swerves across the yellow line into the path of the oncoming participants, a father and his daughter. Death claims the father and his young daughter and the mother, her young son and their pet. All is quiet there now. Almost all traces of the accident are gone. The mess has been cleaned up, and although the yellow lines have been repainted, no caution lights have been installed, no warning signs or reduce speed signs have been posted. So if you are traveling on SR 15, be very careful as you approach the Lukens Lake and Laketon roads. Death could be waiting there for you. Wincel Francis Roann

the most prominent feature of her mother’s personality, strength of character. “If she feels and thinks it is her duty to do something, she will follow through and try to make it right. This is the characteristic which has been passed down to myself and my sister, and I know that is continued in our daughters,” Wicker concluded. Some of Jane’s actions changed her career and some inspired others, but one had a direct effect on her personal life. Jane was adopted at age three, and she had a brother who was nine months old at the time. “When I went to work at the Health Department, I told the clerk-registrar ‘If this boy ever calls in for a birth certificate, call me because it’s my brother,” she said. After working at the Health Department for 13 years, he finally called. “The clerk said ‘Do you want to talk to

your sister?” Jane recounts. Her brother was thrilled to learn that he had a sister. “I went and talked to him on the phone and two weeks later he was down here to visit, he lives in Minneapolis.” After 57 years apart, Jane and her brother had led completely different lives, but they met, visited each other’s families and kept in contact. “He calls me all the time and I call him. I’ve been up there and he’s been down here,” Jane said. Jane has been married to William Skeans for 56 years. They have two daughters, Lynn, who is a nurse practitioner, and Jill Beals, who is a seventh-grade language arts teacher at Wabash Middle School. She also has two granddaughters, Taylor Wicker, an occupational therapy student, and Elle Beals, a Manchester College Student; and two grandsons, Zachary Beals, a microbiologist with the State Board of

Health, and Sam Jessup, a first-grade student at St. Bernard’s Catholic School. A retirement open house for Jane was held on Sept. 30 at St. Matthew’s United Church of Christ. Jane became officially retired at 4 p.m. that day, at which time she and her daughter, Jill, her best friend, Carolyn Biltz, and her granddaughter, Elle, walked across Miami Street to the Health Department so Jane could give her final immunization as public health nurse to her family members and best friend. “I admire her very much,” Wicker concluded. “She has worked hard all her life for the welfare of others and by being a nurse has had the

President Barb Bishop presided and opened the meeting with the discussion of old business. The members decided to purchase a 42” television as the prize for the public raffle in December. The auxiliary members decided to cook and serve fish and chicken at the Post on every second Friday of the month, and then you may order off the menu the second Saturday of every month. New business consisted of donations to State and the fall conference for Unit #15, scheduled for Sept. 30 through Oct. 2. The registration and fees for the fall conference were sent by President Barb Bishop for her and the secretary, Shirley Kessler, to attend the conference. There was no further business to discuss at that time, so President Barb Bishiop adjourned the meeting with prayer given by Jean Leakey. The next meeting is scheduled for Oct. 18.

STATE SENATOR JIM BANKS recently endorsed Bonnie Corn, candidate for Wabash City Council. “Bonnie will work hard and will be thoughtful about the important issues facing the city,” Banks said. “Wabash will be a better place with her service.” Corn also received an endorsement from State Representative Rebecca Kubacki. “Endorsing a candidate is not something I take lightly,” Kubacki said. “I look for honesty, work ethic, commitment to community and someone willing to listen to those they will serve. Bonnie is that person. I am honored to stand with Bonnie and lend my support.” (photo provided)

Organizers of Harvest Fest thank supporters Dear editor, While there is no nice weather guaranteed in early October, Oct. 1 turned out to be a perfect day for the annual Harvest Festival. The celebration of the autumn season began in the early morning and continued throughout the day. Sponsored by the North Manchester Chamber of Commerce Tourism Committee, the Harvest Festival offered autumnthemed food, quality crafters and various family-oriented activities, including pumpkin painting, horse and wagon rides, face painting, a kiddie tractor pull, a 5K run and the annual Cow

Milking Contest pairing four members of the Manchester High School coaching staff against four Manchester College employees. Plenty of great craft vendors and delicious food was offered, such as grilled tenderloins, pulled pork bbq, pork chop sandwiches, many homemade food items, giant cinnamon rolls and apple dumplings. The day, however, certainly would not have been possible without the help, support and contributions of many individuals, clubs and businesses. The Tourism Committee would like to thank the following organizations and

Center for History to host World War II photography exhibit

American GIs who participated in invasions during World War II could always depend on their efforts being documented for their fellow soldiers and folks back home by a goodnatured, talented photographer from Gary: John A. Bushemi. Experience reproductions of the photographs in the exhibit, “One Shot”: The World War II Photography of John A. Bushemi, opening Oct. 18, at the Center For History, 124 E. Main St., North Manchester. Assigned to Yank, the weekly magazine written by and for enlisted men, Bushemi specialized in “photography from a rifle’s length vantage point,” according to his colleague Merle Miller. Visitors to the exhibition will be immersed in Bushemi’s views through numerous magazine covers and personal photographs including those of the soldiers he was traveling with. One series of photographs show soldiers training at Ft. Bragg…what Bushemi’s friend and colleague Marion Hargrove calls the “Hardening Process.” Another series includes close-up portraits of soldiers who were featured in a YANK article about the battle for New Georgia. Another image features soldiers on the beach of Eniwetok Island in the

Marshalls. The soldiers had just been landed and were awaiting the order to attack when they were photographed by Bushemi. Bushemi died Feb. 19, 1944, when he and other correspondents became the target for a series of Japanese knee-mortar shells during the invasion of Eniwetok. Shrapnel from the shells hit and mortally wounded the photographer. As navy surgeons frantically attempted to save Bushemi’s life, the photographer gave his epitaph, telling Miller “Be sure to get those pictures back to the office.” Images of both his battleship funeral service and his funeral service back home in Gary are included in the exhibit.

Columbia City legislator invites students Lagro man injured in singleto make Statehouse their classroom for vehicle accident a day

State Senator Jim Banks (R-Columbia City) will participate in the Indiana Senate’s school outreach program this year by inviting his youngest constituents to visit the Statehouse and learn why their ideas count. Banks said the 20112012 school calendar marks the 12th year of “ A m e r i c a ’ s Legislators Back to School Program”, a plan sponsored by the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) to help elected officials in all 50 states give young people a greater understanding of legislative processes used to create public policy. The program began Sept. 19 and runs throughout the school year. “I think it’s important to stay connected with Hoosier students,” Banks said.

“They are our future and need to know what a difference they can make, at any age, in our legislature.” Banks added that, when available, he would also like to make personal school visits to bring civics to life in the classroom. He said senators hope to utilize the America’s Legislators Back to School Program as much as possible this year. Seven free publications and video resources regarding state government for elementary, middle and high school may be requested prior to a Statehouse visit: - Your Ideas Count! TFK (TIME for Kids) Extra! — Published by TIME magazine for second- and thirdgraders to understand very basic ideas about democracy; - Your Ideas Count! Really! TFK (TIME for

Kids) Extra! — Published by TIME magazine for fourth-, fifthand sixthgraders to learn about how laws affect their lives and to learn that legislators are real people; - You Rule — Published by NCSL for seventhand eighth-graders to understand how citizens rule the system of democracy and that students can have a voice; - Your Ideas Count! in TIME — Published by TIME magazine for ninth-, tenth-, eleventh- and twelfthgraders to explore myths and realities about American democracy and how to get involved; - Your Ideas Count! Representative Democracy and You — Published by NCSL for twelfth-graders and young adults to encourage them to

think about how they view our system of government and how representative democracy relates to them. - Citizen Brain — Created by NCSL for fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-grade students to watch live action and animation shows for 15 minutes while learning about American democracy; - You Rule — Created by NCSL for seventh-12th-g rade students to follow four characters in an 18minute video as they discover how citizens do rule an American democracy. Banks said educators and administrators may call his office at 1-800-382-9467 or email him at .gov to schedule a Statehouse tour and request the above materials or plan a possible classroom visit.

On Oct. 4 at approximately 7:32 a.m., the Wabash County Sheriff ’s Department received a call of an accident with injury on Old SR 15, south of CR 800 S. LaFontaine Town Marshal Paul Karst was the first officer on scene and advised that the driver of the vehicle was pinned under the vehicle. Several Liberty Township firemen arrived a short time later and assisted Marshal Karst in moving the vehicle enough to free the driver, Gary Weaver, 46, Lagro. Weaver was flown from the scene by Parkview Samaritan to Fort Wayne. It appears that Weaver left the west side of the roadway, striking a ditch, which caused his vehicle to flip several times before coming to rest, trapping him. The accident is still under investigation. Assisting at the scene was the LaFontaine Town Marshal, Liberty Fire Department, Wabash Fire Department, Emergency Management Agency and Samaritan.

Frances Slocum Chapter of DAR met Sept. 13 Danielle Smith and

The monthly meeting of the Frances Slocum Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) was held on Sept. 13 in the Blocher Room at the North Manchester Public Library. Cheryl Lewis, secretary, read the minutes of the last meeting, which was held on June 14. Regent Jean Wright reported that she attended the Northern District meeting on Aug. 20. he meeting was held at Covenant United Methodist Church in Fort Wayne. It was announced that the DAR Patriot Project for 2011-2012 is to adopt a mini barn for the new USO at Camp Atterbury. A nonprofit, congressionally organized, private organization, the USO relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations and corporations to support its activities. It was agreed that our Chapter would join

with the General Francis Marion Chapter, Marion, and adopt a mini barn. The Chapter names will be shown on a nameplate on the mini barn. A bus trip to the 121st Continental Congress at the NSDAR Headquarters in Washington DC is being planned for 2012. A bus will depart from Indiana on June 25 and return home on July 3. All Indiana DAR members and their spouses are urged to attend. Joyce Joy read The President General’s Message from Merry Ann T. Wright. The DAR has published a magazine since July 1892, but it wasn’t until July 2001 that the organization premiered American Spirit magazine, a new focus for one of the nation’s oldest continually published periodicals. The American Spirit magazine is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Sept. 17 marked the

224th anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution and the beginning of Constitution Week, observed Sept. 17-23. President General Wright asked that we learn fascinating details about the lives of all 56 brave men who signed the Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson is the well-known author, however, many of the other signers’ stories are very interesting. Regent Wright read exerts from several different books written about The United States Constitution. Books for all ages are available at our public libraries and give many interesting facts about different signers. Regent Wright recently put a display in the corridor of the North Manchester Public Library, which celebrates Constitution Week. Regent Wright detailed the Women’s Issues topic for the month, which is heart disease. For example, a woman suffers a heart attack every 90 seconds in the United States, and every 90 seconds, a woman dies from heart disease. It is the leading cause of mortality in women, yet awareness of typical symptoms of heart disease is low. Women experience a significant time delay in receiving heart attack diagnosis and care, which may contribute to a higher 30-day mortality rate in women compared to men. More information can be obtained at www.womenshealth.g

ov/heartattack. Members were asked to bring items for our deployed women and men in the military to the next meeting. Items needed include AA/AAA batteries, crackers, hard candy, nuts, slim jims/beef jerky, microwave popcorn, trail mix, coffee, sun lotion, soap, wet wipes, travel size Kleenex, small size hand lotion and hand sanitizers and dusting/electronic wipes. The Fall Forum will be held on Oct. 29 at Jonathan Byrd’s Cafeteria in Greenwood. Regent Wright and Cheryl Lewis will attend this meeting. The next Chapter meeting will be Oct. 11 at 7 p.m. at The Woman’s Clubhouse, 770 W. Hill St, Wabash. State Organizing Secretary Nancy George will speak. The topic will be “Why America Needs the DAR”. The Chapter welcomed new member, Barbara Amiss. Visitors are always welcome at the DAR meetings. If you have a Revolutionary War Patriot in your family tree and are interested in finding out more about the organization, you can visit and click on “Membership” or you can call 765-9812612 or 260-563-4661. Are you curious to know if you have a Revolutionary War predecessor waiting for you to join in honoring his or her cause? We think you will find our meetings informative and we enjoy helping anyone interested in exploring their ancestors.

Bryce Shafer Norse edge Knights Pitching Camps in defensive battle to be held Oct. 15

Bryce Shafer

Bryce Shafer, 2007 graduate of Northfield High School and 49th round draft choice of the Chicago Cubs in the June 2010 draft, will be holding pitching camps at Northfield on Oct. 15. Shafer recently finished his second season of professional baseball pitching in Boise for the Single-A Hawks. He went 3-2 as their closer and struck out 35 over 25.2 innings pitched while racking up 12 saves and a very good 2.45

earned run average. During his final year at Valparaiso University, he struck out 121 batters falling only six strikeouts shy of the school record. The 2012 season could find him pitching for the Daytona Cubs in high Single-A or the Tennessee Smokies in Double-A. Shafer will be conducting pitching camps for ages 9-12 from 9:30 to 11 a.m., for ages 13-15 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and for ages 16-18 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. He will be focusing on throwing mechanics through discussion, demonstration and camper participation. Individual instruction for each camper will take place if time permits. Those persons interested in the camp should contact Bryce Shafer at 260571-8623 to register by

phone prior to Oct. 15 if possible. You can register the day of the clinic but advanced notice is preferred. The camp will be held outdoors weather permitting. If it rains, the camp will move into one of the Northfield gymnasiums. Please make sure you bring tennis shoes in case the camp moves indoors as cleats or spikes will not be allowed indoors. Shafer is also available for individual one-on-one pitching instruction. Contact him at the above number if interested. Information on Bryce Shafer’s career can be found at h t t p : / / w e b. m i n o r milb/stats/stats.jsp?p os=P&sid=t480&t=p_p bp&pid=592733 or simply go the Boise Hawks website and click on “roster” then “Bryce Shafer.”

With two of the county’s top quarterbacks and two of the top three receivers in the Three Rivers Conference (TRC) one might have thought the matchup between the Norsemen and the Knights would have been an offensive display. Early on, however, it became apparent that would not be the case as Southwood fumbled on the opening play from scrimmage. Northfield would take over at midfield, but after a 13-yard pass from Austin Curless to Tanner Chamberlain, the Knight defense stood firm, taking back possession on downs. The Knights mounted a drive of their own from there as Connor Hobbs hit Coltyn Spicer and Kyle Weaver, taking the Knights down to the Norse 29. After a fumbled snap and two incompletions, Andy Roser sacked Hobbs and the Norse took over. Roser broke free for a 39-yard run to the Southwood 40-yard line. Two plays later Joe Frieden ran it to the 29, before a Hunter

WACT provides opportunity for family and community involvement by Danielle Smith DSmith

Wabash Area Community Theater (WACT) provides a unique family undertaking for many of its participants. For their production of The Music Man, the cast will include a father, Stan Miller, and his two stepchildren, Cohen, 10, and Alyssa, 8; a mother, Kathy Hawkins, her daughter, Sarah Hawkins-Moan, and the daughter’s husband, David Moan; and a mother-daughter duo, Joan and Jamie Abbott, who will play a mother and daughter in the show. Kathy and her sonin-law, David, have already been in two shows together. They met even before David and Sarah met and married. This is Sarah and David’s first show with WACT. “Sarah and I have never been in a show together,” Kathy said. “So this is really special for the three of us to be in a show together.” She went on to say that she spends more time with her daughter and son-in-law, rehearsing, than she does with her hus-

band. Sarah agreed that she and David spend more time together now than they ever have. “This is only the second show we’ve done together,” Sarah said. “David has a background in opera performance and my background is in straight theater, but it’s fun to do stuff like this as a couple.” This will be Stan Miller’s fourth show with WACT, Cohen’s second and Alyssa’s first. “My kid seem to be natural actors,” he said. “They really like that kind of thing so we’re trying to get them involved at an early age so they can grow up and appreciate it and get involved when they are in high school. Who knows where it could lead.” Perhaps the most intriguing connection in the production is the one between Joan and Jamie Abbott, who will settle into their natural roles as mother and daughter for the show. Joan will play Mrs. Paroo, and Jamie will play Marian Paroo. “Joan has played this part several times, and her daugh-

ter has grown up watching her mother do it,” said Director Joel Froomkin. “Jamie is now at an age where she can play Marian, and I think it is really interesting and a really special opportunity to have the two of them work together and experience the show together.” Jamie feels that their real life relationship is fairly similar to their stage relationship. “In the show, I confide in her in a lot of things and my mom and I are really close,” she said. “In the show, because I love her so much I want her to have what I had, and that’s the way it is in real life also,” Joan said. They also agreed that the spunky argumentative scenes and mother-daughter frustration is easy for them to recreate. “The really nice thing is that when Joan and Jamie auditioned, if they had been completely unrelated, we still would have cast them in their roles,” Froomkin said. “We have a number of adults in the cast or involved in the production that have young people that are part of the company and those young people are here on their own warrant because they auditioned well, but for me the part of it that is exciting is that parents are fostering an interest in their kids in theater.

WABASH AREA COMMUNITY THEATER participants work with a choreographer during their evening rehearsal on Oct. 4. Rehearsals are held every day for at least part of the cast as part of a complex schedule set up by Director Joel Froomkin. (photo provided) They are passing on the love of the arts and passing on their passion for it to their kids.” The connections between cast members go even further than family, giving true meaning to the community aspect of community theater. Kathy is Alyssa’s second-grade teacher at M a n c h e s t e r Elementary School. “So I know why she is tired the day after rehearsal. One day, she had done a math test and wrote ‘I’m really tired!’ at the top. I said, ‘I know, honey, I’m sorry!” Kathy said. Casting for The Music Man began in May and rehearsals began at the end of August. The cast spends an immense amount of time together during the

months leading up to the performance. Rehearsals are held, for at least a portion of the cast, every day. “This director has been a master in planning and scheduling and organizing,” said Kathy. “This show is so big and so many of our dancers and others are in school so they had commitments during the week, so Joel sat down with this big spreadsheet with all of the different commitments and organized a schedule,” said Beth Miller, treasurer of WACT board of directors. “He has just spent hours and hours, what he has put into our show cannot be measured. It’s just fantastic.” “You’re juggling a lot of schedules,” Froomkin said. “All of

Taylin Halderman creates installation art at Huntington University

ON SEPT. 10, scouts from Cub Pack #3409 won first, second and third prizes for fish they caught at the Boy Scouts, Sagamore Council, East District Fishing Derby. The derby was held on the Van Buren American Legion Lake. Winners were: Reese King, (center) first place with an 11 1/2 inch bass; Charlie Poline, (right) second place with a 7 1/2 inch bass; and Kagen Rody, (left) third place with a 7 1/4 inch blue gill. Each won new fishing rods and reels. King also received a plaque for winning first prize. (photo provided)

With gaff tape, Mountain Dew cans and some string, five H u n t i n g t o n University students, including Taylin Halderman of Wabash, created art on campus. It’s not anything they expect to last long, but that was not the point of this class assignment. The point is the transformation of that art over time. Students in the theater department’s Fundamentals of Design class created pieces that are currently situated in trees and on steps around campus - at least for the time

being, barring no new weather pattern or outside tampering. “The project is something we have been building up to over the course of the past four weeks through watching a video by Andy Goldsworthy, a famous installation artist who is still working regularly,” said Jonathan Hicks, assistant professor of theater. “Each student is exploring how art can communicate to a campus through different elements of life that are important to them.” Halderman’s piece is titled “Recycle”,

Purdue Master Gardener Program seeking members

If you want to sharpen your gardening skills and you have an interest in sharing your knowledge with others, Purdue University has the ideal program for you. Beginning Nov. 1, a Purdue Master Gardener Program training series will be offered for residents of Wabash County and surrounding areas. The Purdue Master Gardener Program is a volunteer training program that provides a learning framework for participants to increase their knowledge on a wide variety of horticultural subjects. In turn, participants volunteer, representing Purdue University. As volunteers, participants grow by sharing knowledge while providing leadership and service in educational gardening activities within their communities. Training will be held on Tuesday nights, 6-9 p.m., in the Charley Creek Gardens Education and Resource Building, 551 N. Miami St., Wabash. The program will run Nov. 1 through 22, and

then will continue again Jan. 31 through March 27, 2012. Participants will be exposed to a wide range of subjects: herbaceous ornamentals, woody ornamentals, composting, home lawn care, soil and plant science, pesticide safety, home gardening, landscape management and fruit production. While the class will be encouraged to create new educational outreach programs, there are already plenty of opportunities for which volunteers are needed. Some of these projects include the staffing information booths at gardening events, teaching pub-

lic education classes, Habitat for Humanity and speaking to local clubs and organizations. If you would like an application to join the league of volunteers or have questions about the program,

contact Curt Campbell, Wabash County Courthouse, 1 W. Hill St., Wabash, 260-563-0661 Ext. 245, cecampbe@purdue.ed u. Applications will be accepted until Oct. 21.

by Brent Swan John Huston, owner of J&K’s MegaPet!, recently announced that the store has added a new face to the grooming department and extended the grooming department hours another day. Open six days a week, the grooming department now consists of two certified groomers, Roxane Mann, a groomer with over 10 years in experience, and Jennifer Walters, who joined Mann in the grooming department almost a year ago. “Our groomers are now available Monday through Saturday by appointment,� Huston stated. “Customers can call the store and book an appointment to see Jennifer or Roxane. We might not have walk-in service, but the groomers are great at getting people in whenever the customer needs.� The groomers at J&K provide a variety of services including baths, haircuts, oil treatments, color tipping, painting nails and brushing teeth. The full-service grooming salon caters to what a customer wants, according to

Mann. “I like designing the dogs,� Mann said. “Not every dog will look typical to their breed because of the pet’s body structure. I like to fit what I do around their actual body structure, not how the standard says they should look, and people appreciate that.� Mann has also contributed her artistic ability by adding a hand-painted mural to the exterior walls of the grooming salon. “I worked on it off and on for about a month,� Mann said. The salon accepts any breed of dog, regardless of size, and offers customers the flexibility of dropping their dogs off at a time convenient for the customer. “We have a play pen area and a waiting area,� Huston explained. “The play pen is an area that the dogs can play with toys until their owner comes back to get them. The play pen works out great for people with appointments who can’t come back for a little while after the groomers are finished. We also have a sitting area for those who choose to wait

Members brought school supplies to be donated to schools. Joyce gave the health and safety lesson Patty Sausaman led the pledge to the American Flag. The Christian pledge was led by Beverly Campbell. The Homemaker’s Creed was led by Ruth Dyson. Everyone recited the mission statement: “To strengthen families through continuing education, leadership development, and volunteer community support.” Inspirations by Bonita Kirtlan were on ‘the older woman’, verses from Titus 2:3-5 and the history of apron. Secretary Jane Long read the minutes of the last meeting. Roll call response was “Who was your first grade teacher?” Reading points were recorded by Patty Sausaman. Ruth Dyson gave the treasury report. The dimes collected this year will be for the

“HALO projects for younger children”. Cards were sent to Brian Simons for his birthday and Madeline Dazey. Refreshments were served as Rita Griffith read the bylaws of the club. Joyce reviewed them. Ruth Dyson commented that some members do not help with the bazaar, this money is used for the Christmas breakfast. Bonita commented that the ladies could pay for their own breakfast. Joyce and Rita commented that we could use our monies other ways. Joyce gave the council meeting report. There will be a Tri County meeting on Nov. 1. Host-A-Hoosier will be with Blackford County. We are planning a meeting there on May16, 2012. Joyce received good comments about her newsletter. Ladies Nite at the fair was well received, with Mary Ellen Clark from Casa. The Adult Open Class at the fair had 77 entrants. It was decided to contact the ones who have projects but do not belong to any extension homemaker club. Joyce Brewer, Ruth Dyson and Jane Long attended the district meeting. The theme was “Coming

Attractions”. A red carpet welcomed everyone attending. Cookies for the Red Cross Blood Drive were made by Jane Long on Sept. 20. Happy Homemakers will make cookies on Oct. 18 and Riverside will make them on Nov. 15. The booth at the State Fair in the Ellis Bakery Family and art building had a booth for Indiana Extension Homemakers. Joyce Brewer and Jane Long were there on Aug. 10. It was a very interesting day, handing out over 200 pamphlets. They also stuffed puppy pillows and sewed them closed. Three hundred and eighty-two pillows were stuffed at the fair. One thousand, eight hundred books were given out at the fair. Joyce carried 60 books in her backpack to the building. On March 22, 2012, the exchange homemaker will be in Miami County. It will be good to hear about her trip to Australia. Thanks to Liberty Bells club for the puppy pillows. Thanks to Kaleidoscope, Liberty Bell and Richvalley clubs for donating #10 size cans of Bush’s baked beans. The new office manager in the Extension

Office is Michelle Richman. Tammi Mosier is still the parttime clerical assistant.

Children’s author presents program for Delta Kappa Gamma The Alpha Zeta Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International met Sept. 17 at the Forks of the Wabash in Huntington. President Donna Ott welcomed everyone and Barba Eickhoff introduced her daughter, Lisa, as a guest. Evelyn Priddy, as the author of two children’s books, explained how she became an author. She was on the Education Committee of Forks of the Wabash. The committee decided to prepare trunks of materials for different grades about early life in Indiana. The trunks would contain a book about this earlier time and would also have artifacts that the children could examine. When preparing the trunk for first grade, a suitable book could not be found. Ms. Priddy decided that she would put together a simple story to go in the trunk. She made contact with a family member of the Nuck family, which was connected with

Forks of the Wabash. By the time she was finished, at the urging of a Nuck family member, the simple story had become two illustrated published books. Evelyn urged members to write down family history/stories to keep them alive. She said that family histories are being lost because no one tells the stories any more. She also mentioned that storytelling may be coming back with all the new social media. A business meeting followed the program. Second Vice President Carol Winterholter thanked everyone for their contributions to the project of bringing change for our

Waterhemp weed showing greater resistance to glyphosate

A Purdue Extension weed specialist urges farmers to take necessary steps now to better control yield-reducing waterhemp next year as it spreads through Indiana with increasing resistance to glyphosate. Farmers need to learn more about waterhemp because it has shown greater resistance to the herbicide the past two to three years, Bill Johnson said. The weed has been present in some Indiana field surveys for about 10 years. “More recently, we’ve had an increasing number of complaints about glyphosate’s failure to control waterhemp in soybean production,” Johnson said. “The number of calls we have been getting on that has essentially doubled each year over the last couple of years.” Waterhemp now is found throughout Indiana. It is most prevalent in the southern, southwestern, northwestern and east-central portions of the state. Johnson has produced the educational d o c u m e n t “Waterhemp - an Emerging Weed Problem in Indiana” to raise awareness among farmers and help them develop a plan to better control the weed next year. The document, which includes pictures to help farmers identify waterhemp, is available online at Waterhemp-11.pdf. Waterhemp is among a dozen

species in the pigweed, or amaranth, family. Other pigweed found in Indiana includes redroot pigweed, smooth pigweed and Palmer amaranth. “We’ve had pigweed for a long time, but this one - waterhemp has really emerged as a major threat to soybean production,” Johnson said. One waterhemp plant can produce as many as 1 million seeds. Just a few untreated weeds in a field can lead to a major infestation within a couple of years, Johnson said. Waterhemp is more of a problem for soybeans than it is for corn. A heavy infestation in a soybean field can reduce yields by

30-50 percent, Johnson said. Waterhemp has proven difficult to control. Although Johnson said preemergence herbicides greatly reduce waterhemp density, it emerges throughout the growing season and usually also requires a postemergence herbicide treatment, especially for soybeans. “It is very common to have to spray a field multiple times to get the waterhemp under control,” Johnson said. “One-pass herbicide programs are not going to be effective on it because it has a very long emergence pattern.” Because waterhemp is dioecious male and female flow-

ers on separate plants - two plants always mix genes when they reproduce, increasing genetic diversity within a population and the potential for spreading herbicide resistance and other traits that enable the plant to survive. Johnson recommended that farmers now going through their fields at harvest time take note of whether waterhemp is present and, if so, the level of density and whether there appears to be more of it this year than last. He said that will help them determine a plan for better controlling it. Waterhemp first was controlled in the mid-1980s by herbicides known as ALS-

and PPO-inhibitors before Roundup Ready soybeans, resistant to

glyphosate, were introduced. But glyphosate-resistant waterhemp also has

county officials a wide variety of professional development courses as well as opportunities to network with their peers. In addition, several state officials provided updates on pertinent issues that assist with the betterment of county government. The AIC was established in 1957 and held its first annual conference in 1958. The AICâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual conference is the largest gathering of county officials in the state. Representatives from public agencies, private entities, universities and local elected officials addressed such issues as: energy efficiency, cloud computing technology, on-site healthcare clinics, public access laws, government modernization, how to balance shrinking revenues and the need for services provided by county government, increasing efficiencies in local government, etc. The AICâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors met with the L e g i s l a t i v e Committee members during the conference and adopted its 2012 legislative platform. The legislative platform covers key issues facing counties such as property taxes, 911 funding and local government collaboration and consolidation. In addition, the annual election of officers was held and Allen County Commissioner Therese Brown was elected as president of the AIC Board of Directors. Brown, who is serving as the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first vice president, will officially begin her new term as president on Nov. 1.
