One charged in two-vehicle crash that kills Wabash County resident (Wabash County) - A twovehicle crash Sat., Oct. 27, at the intersection of County Road 600 West and Division Road, south of Roann, caused two people to be airlifted from the scene and later one dying. A preliminary investigation by Indiana State Police Trooper Daniel Prus determined the crash occurred at approximately 2:05 p.m., when a 1996 Chevrolet Lumina, driv-

en by Emilio E. Santana, 26, Macy, was south bound on CR 600 West and failed to stop at the posted stop sign at the intersection of CR 600 West and Division Road. After disregarding the stop sign, the Lumina entered the intersection and struck an east bound 1999 Jeep Cherokee, driven by Cara L. McCollister, 35, Roann, who had the right of way on Division Rd.

The Jeep was hit on the driver’s side, causing it to go off the road, hit a utility pole and snapping it in half. It then went air-borne and rolled, where it came to rest in a field southeast of the intersection on its top. The Lumina came to rest off the road on the southeast corner of the intersection. McCollister and her 15 yearold son were trapped inside the Jeep and had to be extricated.

They were both airlifted from the scene and taken to Parkview Regional Hospital in Fort Wayne. Cara McCollister was pronounced dead at the hospital from her injuries. Her son sustained internal injuries. Santana was not injured, but his wife Laura Esquiel, 28, was taken to Wabash County Hospital for complaint of pain and later released.

Santana has been charged with Reckless Homicide, a Class D Felony. Additional charges may be pending. Units assisting at the scene included: Indiana State Police Master Trooper Robert Good, Reconstructionist; ISP Troopers Lucas Bowyer and Andrew Mills; the Wabash County Sheriff ’s Department, and Samaritan Air Ambulance.

Wabash school administrators accepted into Chinese Bridge Delegation

By Ashley Flynn As the U.S. relationship with China is heavily debated in the current election, the Metropolitan School District of Wabash County hopes to strengthen their ties with the country. Three administrators, Northfield Jr./Sr. High School Principal Mike Keaffaber, Southwood Jr./Sr. High School Principal Tim Drake and Chief Academic Officer Lavonne Sparling, have been accepted into the Chinese Bridge Delegation, a program by national educational organization College Board. They will spend Nov. 7 – 15 in China as guests of the Hanban/Confucious Institute Headquarter in Beijing. During the trip, the administrators will visit Chinese k-12 schools and postsecondary institutions. They will have the opportunity to meet Chinese educators and interact with the classes. They will also attend presentations on Chinese practices and learn about the language and culture. Their overall objective is to create relationships with

Chinese educators and learn about the teacher exchange program, which would allow Chinese educators to come to the school district to teach the language and culture. The group learned about the opportunity from Superintendent Dr. Sandra Weaver, who was originally selected for the trip, but declined for personal reasons. Dr. Weaver is a member of a superintendent group, many of which have traveled to China. They discussed their trips and the importance of China in the business world. When thinking about the language programs already in place (Spanish and French), they decided that Mandarin would better benefit the students than the French language program. “One of our board members is a banker, and he said Mandarin is one of those languages they know in business. Chinese businessmen come over here, and it would be nice to translate. All five board members are very positive about this opportunity,” Dr. Weaver told The Paper of Wabash County. They have already started to

drop the French program, but they allow students already in it to complete their two years. As of now, the board is unsure of when Mandarin classes will become available to the students, but that is one of the questions they will ask on the trip. “It’s my understanding that you cannot ask to have an exchange teacher until you’ve been there (China). We need to ask what their process is and what we have to go through. It would be nice to start next year, but it might take longer,” said Dr. Weaver. Although they don’t know the full process, they do know they would need to provide the exchange teacher with lodging and transportation while in the states. The exchange teacher would stay one or two years, and then a different one would come. The Chinese Bridge Delegation will give the Wabash County school administrators a better understanding of how the Chinese education system works. According to the Hanban mission statement, “Hanban is committed to providing

Chinese language and culture teaching resources and services to the world and meeting the needs of overseas Chinese language learners, so as to contribute to the development of multiculturalism and the building of a harmonious world.” “I think it’s a very exciting opportunity to be able to visit the schools. We have great schools here and we can also learn from others. I think that is what will be the interesting part about this trip,” said Mike Keaffaber. To be selected, each applicant had to write a paper about how the district was prepared and what the goals in terms of foreign language are. “They don’t want you to go on a site seeing expedition. You have to have educational goals that you wish to accomplish. There was a writing assignment; it wasn’t just a fill in the blanks,” said Dr. Weaver. The cost of the trip is relatively inexpensive compared to an average trip to China. Participants pay a $900 nonrefundable registration fee. Flights, travel costs, hotel accommodations, group meals,

admission tickets, local and inter-city transportation and Chinese tourist visa fees are all included by the program. “We always hear about other countries and education. They always try to compare us, and I think it will be interesting to see how they do it. One thing I want to be able to say is how well this is and how they do it in Chinese schools and compare it for a reference,” said Tim Drake. Dr. Weaver continued by saying, “We have so many opportunities here for our students, how many opportunities do they have? The U.S. is so different from other counties because other countries teach English to their students, and we are not so good about that. It will be interesting to see how many people in China they encounter – not including tour guides – that speak English.” The group would like to set up a blog during their trip, but are not yet sure if this will be possible. They are willing to share their experiences with groups in the community and ask that anyone interested in finding out more about their trip contact them.

in the Wabash area are invited to attend. Church Women United is a national volunteer Christian ecumenical movement that brings together women of diverse races, cultures and traditions in closer Christian fellowship, prayer, advocacy and action for peace and justice in the world.

ON OCT. 22, THE KINDERGARTEN CLASSES FROM METRO NORTH visited the fire station and went on a scavenger hunt at the city park. While at the fire station, students learned many fire safety tips such as stop, drop, and roll, stay low and go, and make sure your family has an outdoor meeting spot in case your house ever catches fire. During the scavenger hunt, students had a checklist of nature items to collect. They found acorns, sticks, grass, wild flowers, bugs, small stone, bark, and a leaf. They worked in groups to locate the items. Before heading back to school, students enjoyed a snack and playtime at the park. Metro North would like to thank all of the firemen for sharing many safety tips with our students.

Brain change can change life Can changing your brain really change your life? Dr. Greg Sowles, a neuropsychologist, believes it can. To find out more, come to the 20th Annual Live Life to the Fullest: A Spiritual Growth Conference Saturday, Nov. 3, at the Honeywell Center and sign up to attend Dr. Sowles’ workshop entitled “Change Your Brain, Change Your Life.” The daylong event, formerly called A Day of Healing, is hosted by the Wabash Friends Counseling Center. Scott Makin, LMHC, NCC, MA, is director of the Center and the Live Life to the Fullest conference. Sowles is director of Cornerstone Vision Counseling and Psychological Services, Fort Wayne, which he founded in August of 2008. He was the clinical director of the Family Care Center, also in Fort Wayne,

when asked which of the commandments is foremost, He says, “And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. “The second is this, you shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.” According to Wikipedia, holistic health is a philosophy of medical care that views physical and mental and spiritual aspects of life as closely interconnected and equally important approaches to treatment. Sowles will lead the “Change Your Brain and Change Your Life” workshop at 10:15 a.m. At 1:30 p.m. he will talk on the topic of “Oppositional and Defiant Youth: AKA The Prodigals” as part of the Smart Parenting Track. George Barna is the keynote speaker

for 14 years prior to that. A native Hoosier born in Harlan, he grew up in the Fort Wayne area and graduated from Northrop High School, Fort Wayne, in 1980. He has a degree in Christian counseling from Fort Wayne Bible College and two degrees from Ball State University – a Master’s in counseling and his Ph.D. in education/neuropsychology. “Psychologists like variety,” Sowles says. “There’s no such thing as a psychologist. There are child psychologists, clinical psychologists, family psychologists, educational psychologists and neuropsychologists, just to name a few. “I like to focus on holistic care for my patients, based on Mark 12:30-31,” he continues. Mark 12:30-31 (New American Standard) finds Jesus talking to the Sadducees, and

at this year’s Live Life to the Fullest conference. In his first appearance here, Barna, hailed as the “most quoted person in the Christian church today,” will speak at two general sessions (8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.) in the Ford Theater. There also will be a special concert Friday, Nov. 2, at 7:30 p.m. in the Historic Eagles Theatre. Two of Christian music’s hottest artists, Todd Agnew and Jason Gray, will be performing. The theater is located one block east of the Honeywell Center on Market Street. Specially discounted books will be available in the Honeywell Center lobby throughout the day, as well as educational resource booths from a number of local and regional organizations and businesses. The Live Life to the Fullest conference has been


approved by the National Board of Certified Counselors for 5.0 continuing education hours. Registration begins at 8 a.m. and the conference ends at 4:15 p.m. For more information or to register, visit the Wabash Friends Counseling Center’s Website at, call 260563-8453 or 877-3501658 or email

Farmers need to watch for drought-induced herbicide carryover

This summer’s lack of rain has translated into the potential for summer-applied herbicides to carry over into winter wheat or even spring-planted corn and soybean crops - something growers need to be monitoring, two Purdue Extension weed scientists say. In a normal year, soil moisture helps dissipate herbicide soil concentrations, but in a drought year, the lack of moisture slows that process. Some herbicides might carry over and exceed the labeled crop rotation restrictions meant to prevent injury to the next crop. “The largest concern this year is the

carryover of atrazine and subsequent injury on wheat,” Bill Johnson said. “It is off-label to plant any crop other than corn or sorghum during the same calendar year of an atrazine application.” Labels vary on exact rotational restrictions, but most atrazine premix labels range 14-15 months. Another herbicide with potential to injure wheat is fomesafen applied postemergence in soybeans. The wheat rotational restriction for fomesafen is four months after application, but in areas that saw the least rainfall, Johnson said the carryover could be longer.

“Producers who applied a fomesafen product to soybeans this summer and have not seen significant rain following application should be aware of the potential for injury on emerging wheat,” he said. The return of rain to some areas has reduced some of the concern for herbicide carryover into springplanted crops, but it hasn’t eliminated it altogether. According to Travis Legleiter, Purdue Extension weed scientist, producers in areas that haven’t had significant rain should still be aware of the potential for atrazine and HPPD inhibitors to carryover into soybeans - especially in

high pH or high clay content soils. He also suggested that producers be wary of potential imidazolinone chemistry carryover into springplanted corn. Growers concerned about herbicide carryover have two options for analyzing soil. The first is to conduct a bioassay, a method of planting susceptible crop seeds into suspected soil and comparing the growth and injury to plants grown in a non-herbicide treated soil. A bioassay can be done in the field or in containers. The second option is to take soil samples from suspected carryover fields and have them analyzed by a commercial lab,








tative result of potential injury at planting,” Legleiter said. More information about conducting bioassays and a list of commercial soil labs are available in the Oct. 12 edition of

Drought devastating to beef industry ELECT High feed prices and large financial losses brought on by a combination of multi-year drought in the Southern Plains and the 2012 Midwestern drought will continue their stranglehold on the nation’s beef industry in the coming months, a Purdue Extension agricultural economist says. According to the U.S. Department of Ag riculture, September cattle placements onto feedlots dropped a sharp 19 percent compared with September 2011. July and August also were months of decline. “Drought has been particularly cruel to the beef cattle industry,” Chris Hurt said. “Brood cows remain the last major livestock industry that is land-extensive. So when dryness causes wide stretches of land to be unable to support cow grazing, producers have to buy feed or send cows to town.” The USDA currently lists 54 percent of the nation’s pastures in “poor” or “very poor” condition - the lowest two pasture condition ratings. That lack of quality grazing land means beef producers have to supplement animal diets with expensive feeds. High feed costs have caused feedlot managers to lose up to an estimated $200 per head, according to Kansas State University. “U.S. beef cow numbers are likely to be 2-3 percent lower in the upcoming January inventory report,” Hurt said. “The mid-year estimates were already reflecting a 4 percent decrease in the national beefcow herd, and that was before the impacts of the 2012 drought began to be felt. The implications are for continued cow reductions until feed and forage supplies are restored.” While drought relief has come to the eastern Corn Belt and the Southeast, 62 percent of the lower continental U.S. is still covered by varying degrees of drought - especially in the beef cow rich

central Great Plains and western states. “As a result of the slowing placements in the past three months, the number of cattle on feed dropped to 3 percent below year-ago levels on Oct. 1,” Hurt said. “Cattle on feed will play a role in rationing the nation’s short corn supply.” One ray of hope is that those beef producers able to endure the hard times could see cattle prices rise for the remainder of this year and into 2013. A drop in per capita beef supplies combined with steady consumer demand will drive prices higher. Live steer prices for the just completed third quarter of 2012 averaged near $120 per hundredweight. Hurt said prices are expected to be near $125 for the final quarter and $130 in the first quarter of 2013. Spring prices are likely to peak in the high$130s, and prices in the second quarter of 2013 are likely to average in the mid-

$130s. Record-high cattle prices could be in store for 2013. Calf prices won’t recover quite so quickly because high feed prices will continue to discourage feedlot managers from bidding up. That trend is likely to continue until feed prices fall a bit. “That moderation in feed prices could begin in a small way

with lower soybean meal prices in the spring of 2013, assuming reasonable South American soybean production,” he said. “Further declines in feed costs could occur with a better grazing season in the spring and summer of 2013 and a return to larger U.S. corn and soybean crops next year. “A more abundant

feed supply in the second half of 2013 could result in a robust price recovery for calf and feeder cattle prices.” Hurt also said replenished feed supplies would begin U.S. beef herd expansion in late 2013. A podcast containing Hurt’s full report is available via Farmdoc Daily at http://farmdoc.illin o i s . e d u / m a rk e t ing/weekly/html/10 2212.html

There will be hourly drawings throughout the day for some nice gifts so please plan to attend this drive and help those in need of blood to have a little happier holiday season.

Wabash County teachers stand up against Bennett Dear editor, Undoubtedly, many voters have seen signs in teachers’ yards supporting Glenda Ritz for Superintendent of the Public Instruction. It is unusual for teachers, who normally keep a low political profile, to openly support candidates, but we would be remiss if we did not explain the major reason Tony Bennett should not serve another term as



state superintendent. In an effort to undermine public schools, Bennett and his administration have done the following to Indiana’s public school system. Established a school voucher system that gives at least $2,000 more of our tax money to each child wishing to attend a private school. Planned expansion of the voucher system, again with our tax dollars.



$ ! !% '% ! %% "$ & "! %& & % $'%&% %& & % ' $ % # "#& "!% '##"$& %%"' & "! '%&" ) % & & "! ( & & "! ! "!&$ &% % %





Established forprofit charter schools and supported them using our tax dollars thus pushing for school privatization with our tax dollars intended for public education. Threatened even more testing and turning low performing corporations over to for-profit operators. Grossly reduced public school budgets to divert our tax dollar to support unproven charter schools and an unproven voucher system; all this with the ultimate goal of school privatization. Initiated an extremely flawed public school grading system. Garnered the financial support of the school-choice supporters for campaign funds. These corporate stakeholders derive from outside the state of Indiana, but their funds are radically changing our public schools. Reduced or cut pro-

grams based on shifting our tax dollars to his unproven practices. Public education has suffered under his attack disguised as school reform. Our children deserve the education for which parents’ tax dollars are intended. Bennett’s return to office will further destroy and debilitate the goal of local educators, which is to provide all children with the best education possible. Teachers will vote against this man, but our votes alone will not unseat him. We need all voters’ help. Do not vote for Tony Bennett’s return to office; a vote for Bennett will continue to erode our children’s education. If you need any additional information, talk with a teacher. Our children’s educational futures are at stake. Signed by 40 Wabash County Teachers

Eight ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency through lighting (BPT) - It’s easy to instantly trim your energy consumption and boost the ecofriendliness of your home. The key to easy energy savings is lighting. Though for many homeowners and renters, knowing how and what to do to improve their home’s lighting energy efficiency can be confusing. To alleviate that confusion, the American Lighting Association (ALA) offers eight easy energy-saving steps: 1. Replace incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescents (CFLs). To make an immediate impact on your energy consumption - and your utility bill - swap out your most-used incandescent bulbs with CFLs. “It’s the easiest way to start improving your energy efficiency,” says Joe ReyBarreau, education consultant for the ALA and an associate professor at the University of Kentucky’s School of Interior Design. If you have not used any residential CFLs in your home, you might be surprised at their range and versatility.

The newest CFLs do not flicker like those of old, and they have much better color quality than even just a few years ago. A close look at the color temperature listed on the bulb package label can help you get the right product. “What happens is that people buy a color temperature that’s too cool, and they absolutely hate it,” says ReyBarreau. Instead, choose a bulb that’s labeled residential color, warm or soft white. 2. Replace dimmable incandescent bulbs with dimmable CFLs. As the color range of CFLs has improved, so has their ability to be dimmed, says Rey-Barreau and dimmable bulbs are a proven way to decrease energy use. However, while the technology has come a long way, CFLs still do not have the dimming range of incandescents. “At about 20 to 30 percent, the CFL will shut off,” says Rey-Barreau. 3. Buy name brands. It is frustrating to invest in a longer-lasting bulb only to have it burn out quickly. To avoid

that, buy recognizable brands for improved quality and color. 4. Revamp outdoor fixtures. Your outdoor lighting fixture may be beautiful, but it may be an energy guzzler, too. Start outside as you slowly replace fixtures with more energy efficient versions. Look for those that use either CFLs or light-emitting diodes (LEDs), or those that activate using a motion sensor or photocell. 5. Buy Energy Starqualified fixtures and bulbs. Energy Star is a U.S. Department of Energy certification most recognized on appliances - though also used on lighting fixtures and bulbs. “Any time someone buys a product that has the Energy Star label, they’ll know it has both efficiency and quality verified,” says Rey-Barreau. 6. Retrofit recessed lighting with LED fixtures. Recessed fixtures can be easily replaced with super energy-efficient LED versions - without any messy construction. “You just take off part of the existing fixture, and the replace-

Home renovations before the holidays

Fall is a great time to tackle some of those home improvement projects. Now that the summer vacations are over and children are back in school, you’re ready to make your home all comfy and cozy before the deep freeze and holiday guests arrive. Consider starting with your bathroom first, since this is a room frequently used both by your family and guests. If your bathroom is dated in decor, aged in function and behind the times in energy efficiency, you’ll be doing your home and your pocketbook a good service by upgrading some features. Here’s how: * Beautiful visuals: The bathroom vanity

is the first feature in the room people will see. Incorporate a contemporary new look in your bath that will earn admiring glances from your guests with TOTO’s Maris Semi-Recessed Vessel Lavatory. With a sleek design and deep basin, this semirecessed lavatory has a nano-technology glaze applied that helps prevent bacteria and soap debris from sticking to its surfaces. Because of this, you’ll use fewer harsh chemicals to keep the sink clean, which saves you money and is better for the environment.

ment fixture fits into the old housing,” says Rey-Barreau. “LED fixtures have a high initial cost, but the fixture will last literally the lifetime of the project.” 7. Replace your under-cabinet lighting. With long life and super high efficiency, some LED lighting also offers fairly easy installation, including pucks and strips used as under-cabinet

lighting. As an added bonus, LED lights will not give off the undesirable heat of incandescents. 8. Be realistic in your expectations. While upgrading some or all of your lighting is a good way to improve your energy efficiency, it is not a one-stop solution. “One of the things sometimes misunderstood is that people assume if they

replace all of their incandescent lighting with energy-efficient versions they are going to save this huge amount on their electricity,” says ReyBarreau. They will save, of course, but since lighting only accounts for about 10 percent of all electricity consumption, the amount saved will be relative to that. The most savings comes over the long term

with continued lower utility bills and fewer burned-out bulbs.

Protecting your home against winter’s ‘silent killer’ (BPT) - It’s colorless, odorless and the number one cause of accidental poisoning in the United States. And, it worsens in the winter. Known as the silent killer, carbon monoxide (CO) is responsible for an average of 450 deaths and 20,000 emergency room visits each year, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association. With more than twofifths of all CO poisonings occurring between December and February, home-

owners are at increased risk once temperatures begin to drop. “During the winter months, many families turn to heating sources they might not use at other times of the year,” says Deborah Hanson, director of external affairs for First Alert, the most trusted name in home safety. “While these heating sources may be effective at providing warmth, they also can pose great risks if not used properly. To help protect loved ones

from the dangers of CO poisoning, it is important for homeowners to take proper precautions when dealing with any kind of fuel-burning heat source.” First Alert recommends the following tips and tools for keeping your home and loved ones warm and safe - this winter and all year long: Protect against CO poisoning Run kitchen vents or exhaust fans any time the stove is in use. The kitchen stove is among the most fre-

quent sources of CO poisoning in the home. To help eliminate danger of overexposure, never use the oven to heat a home. Always run exhaust fans when cooking, especially during the holidays when stoves are left on for longer periods of time. Also, open a nearby window periodically when cooking to allow fresh air to circulate. Never use generators indoors. In the case of a power outage, portable electricity generators must be

used outside only with power brought into the structure with a cord. Never use them inside the home, in a garage or in any confined area that can allow CO to collect. And be careful to follow operating instructions closely. Also refrain from using charcoal grills, camp stoves or other similar devices indoors. Have fuel-burning appliances inspected regularly. Arrange for a professional inspection of all fireplaces and fuel-burning appliances - such as

furnaces, stoves, clothes dryers, water heaters and space heaters - annually to detect any CO leaks. Be mindful of the garage. Warming the car in the morning before work is common during the winter months, but running vehicles inside an attached garage, even if the door is open, is hazardous, as CO can leak into the home. Install/test CO alarms. Carbon monoxide alarms are the only way to detect this poisonous gas in

a home. For maximum protection, alarms should be installed on every level of the home and near each sleeping area. Test alarm function monthly and change batteries every six months. In addition, alarms should be replaced every five to seven years to ensure proper function. If the installation date is unknown, replace immediately.

dering where you’ll find the time and resources. But, with some optimism, easy tips and access to a few rental tools, you can winterize your home in just one weekend, leaving plenty of time to enjoy autumn’s splendor. Prepare your lawn and landscaping Cold temperatures cause grass and other plants in your landscape to go dormant. Spend a few hours preparing your lawn for beautiful greenery next year. Start by aerating. Renting an aerator is a cost-effective and efficient way to reduce thatch and provide extra space in the soil for water and oxygen to reach the roots. Find a local American Rental Association (BPT) member store near you by visiting After aerating, spread a quality winter fertilizer to give your grass the nutrients it needs to grow strong. If you live in an area with harsh winters, remember to cover roses and delicate perennials so that they are protected. Winterize your deck The harsh winter elements can take a major toll on decking, so it’s important to protect it.

Button-up your home for winter (BPT) - As the leaves turn and fall to the ground, it’s time to start thinking about buttoning up your home for winter to keep you and your family healthy and comfortable, your belongings safe and high energy costs at bay. Heating accounts for 34 percent of all annual utility usage, according the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). One of the most cost-effective ways to improve the energy efficiency and comfort of your home is to seal and insulate the envelope outer walls, windows, doors and roof. By doing so, Energy Star estimates that a homeowner can save up to 20 percent on heating and cooling costs, the equivalent to lowering up to 10 percent of total energy costs for the year. Here are a few ways to keep you and your family healthy, your belongings safe and help lower your heating bill: Old, drafty windows and doors can account for home energy loss of up to 30 percent, according to the EPA, which means paying more in the winter to heat your home. By replacing non-performing win-

dows and doors, homeowners can drastically reduce heating costs. A typical home that replaces its singlepaned, clear glass windows with energy-efficient windows can realize up to $501 in annual savings, according to the EPA. “Windows are a great source of natural light, and a great way to admire the picturesque snow-covered trees and lawns while avoiding the brisk winter air; however, they can also be the site of the biggest energy efficiency offender,” says David Harrison, chief marketing officer of Champion Windows, one of the nation’s leading home improvement companies. “By installing our Comfort 365 Windows, homeowners can watch their heating bills drop and rid their homes of cold drafts.” Additionally, old or improperly installed siding can also be the cause of drafts. However, by installing new, energy-efficient vinyl siding and underlayment, homeowners can increase a homes’ R-Value, a measure of insulation’s ability to resist heat traveling through it.

“Installing energyefficient siding can help insulate your home against the cold, reduce the amount of air flow into your house, and make it easier to keep warm air in the winter,” says Harrison. However, even the best windows, doors and siding can be drafty, if they are poorly installed. So it’s important to make sure your home improvement is completed by a quality contractor who has a long history of being in the business so you can be sure they will be around if you have any issues down the road. Water leakage from snow, ice and rain can cause damage to the exterior and interior of your home. This can result in costly damage to framing, structure and insulation, more importantly it can cause issues - like mold - that can be harmful to the health of your family. The roof is often the site of leaks in homes; however, by installing a new roof and taking the proper precautions, leaks won’t be a problem, especially with Champion’s Comfort 365 Roof System, which

uses a flexible, self-healing barrier in all leak vulnerable areas and is guaranteed with a limited lifetime warranty. “Your home will settle and shift over time and extreme weather can be an issue,” says Harrison. “It is important to have barriers to provide protection against leaks caused by roof setting and extreme weather. Unlike many companies who only use this on the north side of a home or treat it as an upgrade, Champion uses a flexible, self-healing barrier anywhere your home’s roof joins and at all attachment points.” Other ways to improve the seal of your home to prevent moisture damage, drafts and improve energy efficiency include: * Sealing leaks * Adding insulation * Sealing ducts “Now is the perfect time to make these improvements,” says Harrison. “Since it’s the offseason, homeowners can find great deals and attractive financing to ‘button up’ your home for winter.” For more energy saving window, door, siding and roof tips, check

Why a little fall outdoor maintenance can go a long way (BPT) - After spending the summer enjoying the outdoors, it can be a little bittersweet to get the deck and yard ready for the cooler days ahead. The good news is getting outdoor areas ready for winter doesn’t have to be a time-consuming process. A few simple steps can minimize extra work when warmer weather rolls around again. For each area of the yard, there are a few procedures that can save you big headaches in the long run. The many homeowners that put a lot of time and money into building a deck know

the importance of preserving that investment. A wood deck should be stained annually, however, many homeowners are turning to lowmaintenance composite decking and railings, as composite options by manufacturers like TimberTech offer high-end aesthetics with low-maintenance qualities. But that doesn’t mean that composite decks are mainten a n c e - f r e e . TimberTech provides a 25-year warranty on all of its products, and with some simple annual maintenance, they can be kept looking great for years to

come. The company’s decking experts recommend the following tips for composite deck care and cleaning: * Clear all debris to prohibit mold and mildew growth. * When using a cleaner, be sure to use one that’s compatible with your decking material and follow the instructions. * Using a pressure washer is a great way to get a deep clean, but it’s best not to exceed a pressure greater than 1,500 psi. In addition to raking to keep the yard clear of leaves, dethatching can prevent a buildup of above-ground roots

that can be a detriment to soil health. Aerating in the fall can also help lawns recover from a summer of heavy use, providing much needed oxygen for the turf ’s roots. After particularly dry summers, it doesn’t hurt to water trees with a soaker hose or root irrigator so they have some water to help them survive the winter. Fall is also the time to clear out both garden and flower beds, as you’ll thank yourself in the spring for doing the work before winter set in. Be sure to get your fall-planting flower bulbs in before the ground freezes as well.

Clearing all gutters of debris should be an annual fall task, as all the fallen leaves can easily jam up downspouts, which can damage gutters or cause ice dams in colder climates. It’s also a good idea to clear the areas around the foundation of the house, as pests like to make their homes there when the weather gets cold. By spending a temperate autumn day outside preparing your outdoor spaces for winter, you’ll eliminate extra work for yourself in the spring. For more deck care tips, visit

Stay warm this winter: home heating tips for tricky spaces

(BPT) - When cold winds blow, it can be tricky to keep different rooms throughout your home at the right temperature - especially if you have old and drafty windows, tight spaces or room additions to work around. It can also be challenging to ensure economical comfort without having to do a major heating system overhaul. Yet there are easy and flexible ways to heat your home in areas where it needs it most and still stay comfortable all winter long. Odd-shaped rooms in older homes, additions such as sunrooms and bonus rooms, and farflung spaces like

remodeled basements and attics can pose a heating challenge. In addition, some homes have no ductwork heating system, making it impractical or expensive to consider installing one to heat such spaces. If this sounds like your house, consider these tips to keep your home warm this winter. Go ductless with room-by-room heating A ductless heating system can provide comfort where you want it, when you want it. For example, American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning offers ductless split systems that can be retrofitted

to a house that has no ductwork, or if the central heating system is already at capacity. Advantages of these systems include their small size and flexibility for heating and cooling individual rooms. A ductless system consists of two simple components: an outdoor compressor/condenser and one or more indoor units that deliver heated or cooled air. Since there is no ductwork, the small indoor unit can be mounted on most interior walls. Mini Split Models have one outdoor unit and one indoor unit. Multi Split Models can have up to five indoor units connected to one out-

door unit, for heating rooms both efficiently and economically. Each unit is also individually controlled, for roomby-room comfort. Add warmth with a gas stove or fireplace Another option to consider is an individual heating unit, such as a gas stove. This can be a great solution for a hard-to-heat space, such as a porch converted to a year-round room. These stoves give off all the warmth and glow of a traditional wood burning fireplace or stove, and can keep an entire room comfortable in the coldest months of the year, even if they are the room’s only heat

Keep drafts out and dollars in by weatherizing your home

(BPT) - Many homeowners expect their heating costs to rise as cold weather creeps around the corner. Contrary to popular belief, there are ways to keep your energy costs (and your thermostat) low during the winter. “In colder climates, it’s important for homeowners to keep their residences warm and energy bills low by weatherizing,” says Vageesh Bakhshi, category manager at ShurTech Brands, LLC. “The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that homeowners can usually save up to 20 percent of heating and cooling costs by properly sealing their homes. Weatherizing is a simple and affordable DIY project that can be completed in just one day, or even a weekend.” Weatherizing your house from top to bottom can help keep your family warm and toasty while saving money. Don’t be left in the cold - learn ways to properly prepare your home for whatever weather this winter may bring. Protect your home from the attic cold. The attic is often overlooked as a source of energy loss. Although insulated,

the attic is a big hole, especially the attic stairway opening, which can allow cold air to enter the home, forcing you to turn up your heat. Combat the cold with an Attic Stairway Cover from Duck brand - they’re flexible and lightweight, easy to install and help prevent cold drafts from seeping into your home through the attic stairway opening. Repositionable for easy attic access, Duck brand Attic Stairway Covers are a must-have for the cold winter months, and can even help save energy all year round.

Combat the cold by sealing holes. Nooks and crannies are perfect for storing clothes and keepsakes, but they’re also where you occasionally find thinning wall insulation and holes, which are the main culprits of escaping heat - and dollars. To ensure your home is well-protected, cover and seal holes with a spray foam or foam board to block cold air. Also make sure to check all plumbing, ducts and electrical wiring areas that penetrate through walls, floors, ceilings and soffits over cabinets. These areas are likely to have air leaks

that can be easily caulked to block any potential air infiltration. Winterize windows for added warmth. To keep your home warm and comfortable, it’s important to cover all your bases, and windows are no exception. Casements are a prime location for heat to seep out and cold to creep in, so keep your house warm and draftfree by weatherizing windows with products like Duck brand RollOn Window Kits. Made of a clear shrink film, these window kits provide an added barrier between the winter

source. Simply turn the flame on or off with a button, or set it to ignite only when the room reaches a preset temperature. Another consideration is a gas fireplace insert to efficiently heat your existing fireplace, a good solution in a basement or added family room. Keep hot air in and cold air out Some simple repairs around the house can also ensure you’re not

wasting precious heat. For example, older windows can let heated air escape. If you can’t replace your windows with more energy-efficient ones, improve the performance of the ones you have. Some ideas from the U.S. Department of Energy include using a heavy duty clear plastic sheet on a frame or taping clear plastic from the inside of the window to reduce drafts;

installing tight fitting, insulating window shades; and opening curtains and shades in the daytime to let in warming sunlight. You can also reduce heat loss by up to 50 percent by installing exterior or interior storm windows. There are no excuses for being cold this winter. Use these tips to keep Old Man Winter and his frosty breath at bay.

Winterize your home in a weekend... continued from page 12 unscathed and ready for outdoor fun in spring. To keep the structure’s integrity intact and wood looking beautiful, clean and seal your deck before winter arrives. Start by renting a pressure washer at your local ARA member rental store. The trained rental associate will give you guidance on safe and efficient operation of the pressure washer. After you clean your deck, let it dry completely and then apply paint or sealant. Trim your trees Weak trees and dead branches can break and fall during winter, possibly damaging your home, your car, a utility line, or worse. Be a responsible homeowner and cut weak or dead branches in the fall so you don’t have to worry. A chainsaw is the easiest way to deal with dead branches and will take much less time than hand sawing. You can rent a chainsaw to cut the wood into small logs or pieces for disposing of properly. Chippers can also be rented for grinding up the wood and

using it for mulch in the spring. Seal windows and doors When temperatures drop, the small leaks in windows and doors become apparent. Avoid a chilly house and high-energy bills by caulking your windows and weather stripping doors. Weather stripping is cheap and easy. Apply the adhesive strip between the door and frame for a tight seal that limits the amount of air that enters or exits when the door is closed. Caulking windows is a simple process as well when you have a caulk gun. If you need a tall ladder to reach second story windows, consider renting it since you’ll likely use it infrequently. While you have the ladder, clean your gutters of leaves and other debris that can cause backups and ice dams. All you need is one weekend to prepare your home and yard for the cold weather ahead. Plus you’ll get to enjoy the crisp autumn air while you get these quick and easy chores done.

Keep drafts out... continued from page 15

chill and your home, and come with a pretaped edge for easy installation. Once spring arrives, simply peel the film from your windows and discard. Fight strong winds with a storm door When old man winter comes knocking, block his entrance with a storm door. These durable doors are installed in front of the home’s access doors to protect against harsh weather, keeping your family warm and cozy. Storm doors increase

the insulation of entrances by lowering the amount of air transferred with each entry and exit. When aligned well with the architecture of the home, they can add instant beauty and protection, while helping make your energy bill more appealing, too. By following these weatherization tips, you can rest assured that your home’s interior will be a little more protected from frightfully cold conditions.


Home renovations before the holidays...continued from page 11 finish. This high-efficiency faucet is made from solid brass and is WaterSense approved. * Warmer flooring: There’s nothing worse than bare feet on a cold floor - especially in the morning. Tile flooring looks beautiful in bathrooms, but can leave the feet feeling a bit chilled. Place a soft and decorative rug in front of the sink, the shower and the toilet to help alleviate cold toes. Look for rugs that match the color and decor of the

room. Or use the rugs as an accent color to brighten up the space. * Efficient commodes: Upgrading your toilet to a high-efficiency unit will make a noticeable difference on your water bill. Consider the Universal Design Maris Dual-Flush Toilet from TOTO, which has clean, contemporary lines, a recessed-curve tank, and skirted design that saves on cleaning time. Its state-of-the-art, gravity-fed flushing system

puts an end to a common complaint many dual flush toilet owners have - ?flush ‘n brush,? the need to brush the bowl to remove streaking after every solid stop. * New linens: A quick and simple upgrade for your bathroom includes replacing towels and the shower curtain. To introduce a calm and restful spa-like ambiance, find new linens in colors that blend with the colors on the walls. Or go bold with

vibrant accents and splashes of color to give your room a sense of energy. * Elegant tiling: Prefab showers are easy and convenient, but they can look aged and stained after long use. To really spruce up the look of your shower area in the bathroom, consider tiling the surround, or installing large glass pieces painted to match the color of the room. You’ll be amazed at how beautiful the shower

will appear, and you may decide that you won’t want to hang a curtain to block the view of the beautiful surround, and instead opt for a sliding glass door. Once you see how beautiful your renovated bathroom appears, you’ll probably want to get started sprucing up the rest of your house. In the meantime, enjoy the bathroom, as well as the compliments you’ll receive from your visiting guests.

She said that people choose making quilts to fill time and to keep someone we love warm. She showed us quilts that had special significance to her all the way back to when she was a little girl. The unloading of one box to the other carried an element of surprise and we enjoyed Lucille’s presentation immensely. The program was concluded with being treated to pumpkin pie by Marquerite Guenin.

Seven steps to getting your car ready for winter... continued from page 13 seven items as you set up for cold-weather driving, you’ll help ensure there aren’t any surprises when the temperatures drop. Check fluids. Most

importantly check your coolant to make sure you have enough, as you’ll be left without heat if you don’t. Consult your owner’s manual to find the cor-

rect blend if you need to add more. It’s never a bad idea to keep extra coolant in your trunk in case of emergency. While you’re at it, check to make sure

your brake fluid, oil and transmission fluid are also at the proper levels. Wash and wax your car at a professional car wash. It may seem


counterintuitive to get your car nice and shiny for what’s often the sloppiest season, but a thorough wash can remove harmful compounds that may cause damage when mixed with sand and road salt. Experts from the International Carwash Association also recommend a coat of

wax for an extra layer of protection from the elements. Professional car washes can also save up to 20 percent of the amount of water you’d use by washing your car at home. They do this by treating and reusing their water, rather than releasing toxic chemicals and grime into the storm

drains, which can often occur with pavement washing. Check your tires. Checking to make sure your tires aren’t worn and are properly inflated is especially important before winter sets in. Cold air can cause your tires to lose pressure, so be sure to check again once the temperature drops the recommended tire pressure for your vehicle can be found on the inside of your driver’s side door. Cracking, presence of wear bars and shallow treads are all indicators that you may need to replace your tires. Check your wipers. When sloppy weather hits, you’ll want to make sure you have a reservoir full of wiper fluid. Checking your wiper blades for wear and replacing them if needed can prevent huge visibility headaches once snow and sleet arrive. Test your battery. The next time you have the car in for an oil change, ask the mechanic to test your battery to make sure it can provide enough starting power once the temperature plummets. Brakes. While you have your car in, ask for a brake inspection as well, as you’ll need them to be in good working order when driving on slick roads. Winter emergency kit. In addition to stocking your car with a scraper and brush, it’s a good idea to include a few provisions in case you get stranded in snowy and cold conditions. Pack extra blankets, hats and gloves, high-energy snacks like granola bars, drinking water and a first-aid kit. Keeping a collapsible shovel in your trunk is also a good idea in case you get stuck. Whether it’s snow, ice, fog or freezing rain, winter driving certainly presents its challenges. But by making a few simple preparations before winter hits, you’ll ensure that your car is ready to handle the challenges winter throws your way. And by making winter maintenance an annual ritual, you’ll not only help keep you and your family safe, but also prolong the life of your car by preparing it to stand up to the elements.

Turnovers, Briggs doom Norse in sectional semifinals North Miami: 35 Northfield: 12 By J.D. Sparks North Miami’s speed caused the Norse fits during the Sectional 35 Football 1A semifinals match up at Wilbur Dawes Field, a 35-12 Norse loss. The Warrior senior running back Brady Briggs rushed for 159 yards and three touchdowns on 22 carries. In addition, the North Miami defense scooped up four fumbles, limiting Northfield’s offensive chances. “You can’t dig yourself into that big of a hole against a good team like North Miami,” Tony Uggen, the Norse Head Coach, said. “We probably fum-

bled the ball and lost it six times all season. You can’t give North Miami as many chances as we gave them.” Despite a great defensive effort from the Norse in the first half, North Miami took a 14-0 lead into halftime, both on Briggs touchdown rushes. His first came on the second play after Northfield fumbled a punt and North Miami recovered on the Norse 13-yard line. With 31.4 seconds left in the quarter, he scampered in from nine yards out, putting North Miami up 7-0. Briggs busted free from the Norse defense for his second score with five minutes left in the second half. Three plays after a

Norse runners finish season at state

Caleb Augustus and Jenna Halderman finished the 2012 cross country season at the state finals meet Saturday at the LaVern Gibson Championship Cross Country Course in Terre Haute. Augustus, a senior, finished his season in 42nd out of 194 after running the course in 16 minutes and nine seconds. His 2012 accolades include an individual Three Rivers Conference title as well as an individual regional championship. Halderman took 40th as a sophomore after earning her second-straight state meet berth. She ran the course in 19:05. She also won a regional title this season and broke her own school record with a time of 18:43 earlier this season. Carmel won both the boys and girls state team titles. The boys’ team scored 93 points and the girls scored 66. Barr-Reeve’s Connor Sorrells, a senior, won the boys’ individual state title in 15:21. Mishawaka’s Anna Rohrer, a sophomore, won in 17:13, an Indiana state girls cross country record.

Norse failed fourthdown conversion, Briggs cut through the middle of Northfield’s defense for a 56-yard score. Aaron Barker put the Warriors up by three touchdowns late in the third quarter. He scampered in from 22 yards away. He finished the game with eight carries for 69 yards. Passing, Barker was 1-for-10 with an 18yard touchdown strike to Daniel Musselman in the fourth quarter. “You can take Barker away, at least stat-wise, but you can’t take everything he does for us away,” said North Miami Head Coach Greg Miller. “He’s a great young man with his athletic ability and his brains. Our senior class is extremely intelligent

Sparks) and it shows on the field.” The Norse were able to outscore North Miami 12-7 throughout the rest of the game, but it wasn’t enough. Quarterback Austin Curless connected with a pair of touchdown passes to Jared Kirtlan. The first went for 35 yards with 1:56 left in the third. His second came in the fourth quarter, a 26-yard toss that made the score 3512. “I told the kids we had to stop them at the

halftime break. We had to stop them if we had a chance,” Uggen said. “We started to comeback after Curless’s touchdown made it 216. When they put the ball on the ground, we couldn’t seem to scrape it up. I’m proud of the kids, though.” Uggen attempted several unorthodox plays in attempt to go toe-to-toe with the Warriors. Tanner Wilcox converted a fourth-andfour play in the first on a fake-punt run for

10 yards. The drive ended in a punt, however. Later, Wilcox converted another fourth-down play during a punt attempt when the snap was fumbled. Andy Roser plucked the ball up and passed it backwards to Wilcox, who ran the necessary four yards for the first down. The Norse later attempted an onside kick to begin the second half, but the ball went out of bounds. Towards the end of the game, down 35-12,

Northfield attempted several trick plays. “We just tried to go out having fun,” Uggen said. “We fought until the end and now these guys will be at it again during winter sports. North Miami was fast, strong and bigger.” The Norse ended their season 4-6. North Miami (8-3) hosts Adams Central (7-4) for a rematch of the 2011 sectional title, a 30-6 Flying Jets victory.

should give is that it was time for a different path in my life,” Baker said to The Paper. “We’ll just leave it at that.” Baker led the Squires to a 4-6 record in 2012. He was 39-75 overall at MHS, including an 82 record in 2009 when his team earned a share of the Three Rivers Conference title. The 2009 Squires fell to the eventual state champions, Fort Wayne Luers, in the first round of sectionals that season. Luers won state each season since.

“Coach Baker submitted his letter of resignation as Head Football Coach at MJSHS this past week,” MJSHS Superintendent Bill Reichhart said in a press release. “We are very appreciative of the positive influences that Coach Baker has had on the young men who have played football at MJSHS for the past nine years under his direction.” Dr. Reichhart also commented on Baker’s future at MJSHS. “Coach Baker continues to be well-re-

spected by students and staff and has been a model of integrity for all of us to follow. Mr. Baker remains a very important part of our high performing teaching staff at MJSHS. “In addition, he will continue to have other coaching responsibilities within MCS, including assistant varsity baseball coach this spring. It is MCS policy to not comment any further on personnel decisions.” As for Baker’s opinion, he said he wasn’t sure what his next move will be.

“Right now, I honestly don’t know for sure (if I want to continue to coach),” he said. “With the state of education today and all the stuff teachers have to do, I’m not sure what I will do.” He does know, however, that he wants to remain close when asked if he has any places he may want to coach in mind. “(I don’t have any places in mind) now,” he said. “I don’t want to move my family, so I’ll be staying close.”

“We are committed to the fact that service & excellence sells cars”

VolleyKnights fall to Wapahani Southwood falls in semistate finals match

By J.D. Sparks For the fifthstraight season, Southwood earned a spot in the 2A volleyball final four. But, the outcome remained the same for the last two seasons, a loss to W a p a h a n i . Southwood bested Adams Central in the first match Saturday, 25-13, 24-26, 25-13, 2520. In the finals match, Wapahani won its third-straight match over Southwood this season and third-consecutive semistate finals match over the VolleyKnights, 25-16, 25-14, 25-20. “They were better than us,” Southwood Head Coach Tom Finicle said of the two-time defending 2A state champions. “They put pressure on us with their serve, they put pressure on us with ball control, and they put pressure on us offensively and defensively. They

were just good. We just weren’t able to respond well to the pressure they created.” Long Wapahani runs in each of the three games put seperation between the Raiders and VolleyKnights and eventually gave Wapahani the win. In the first game, Southwood fought back from a 5-2 deficit thanks in part to consecutive Kaley Harness kills, tying the score at 6-all. “I thought Kaley played really well (Saturday),” Finicle said. “She’s played exceptionally well the last month of the season. It’s like something clicked and then her numbers began to steadily increase.” After Wapahani scored the next three points, the Raiders began to take control. An Emily Murphy kill and a Harness ace put Southwood within two at 11-9, but that’s as close as the team would get. Wapahani closed the first match

on a 14-7 run for a 2516 first-game win. Wapahani ended the second match with nine consecutive points. Southwood played an 8-5 lead early on the strength of three kills and an ace from Drew Rhamy. Wapahani chipped away until Lindi Thomas’s kill gave the serve to Shawna Estep. Estep served the next eight points, giving Wapahani a 2-0 match lead with a 25-14 game two victory. “When we were able to transition into attacks against those guys, we did some good things, but we weren’t able to do enough of it,” Finicle said. “We allowed too many runs. You can’t give up those kinds of runs against anyone of worth. In game two, that run was a backbreaker.” Back-to-back Rhamy aces put the VolleyKnights ahead 8-6 in game three. Wapahani replied with a 7-1 run to go up 13-9 and a 6-3 streak to

The VolleyKnights chopped the lead to 1917 as Lexi Brickner and Rhamy each collected a pair of kills. Wapahani rattled off the next three points. Brickner’s kill halted the run and a pair of Rhamy service points set the score at 23-20. Aubreigh Applegate ended any hopes of a VolleyKnight comeback with two kills to end the game, match and semistate finals,

25-23. Finicle said he will miss the special talents each of the three seniors brought to the VolleyKnights team. “They each brought something different to the party,” he said to The Paper. “Sarah White transitioned very well to the libero posision. It’s a demanding position and she stepped up. You’re not out of the match really at all and I felt she was dialed in and her

MMA Minded/Carlson Gracie Wabash brings home gold from Michigan Open Jiu Jitsu competition MMA Minded, LLC in Wabash is very excited to announce that instructor Rocky France and student Ross Haughn both walked away with gold medals in their weight class at the Michigan Open Jiu Jitsu competition held Sept. 29 in Waterford, Mich.

focus was really, really good. “Emily Murphy was incredible from the left side. We haven’t had a lefty come through here for a long time. She hit a heavy ball and most teams aren’t expecting a lot from the left side. Kaley just got better and better and really came on during this last month. They all were excellent role models, too. They accomplished a lot,

too. They went to four final fours and a state championship game. They won four Three Rivers Converence titles. That’s impressive. I’m really proud of them.” Southwood ended its season at 26-13. Wapahani improved to 34-4 and will play Providence (35-4) at Ball State’s Worthen Arena in Muncie 1 p.m. Saturday.

Adams Central knocks out Knights Adams Central: 42 Southwood: 7 By Gary Andrews The Knights did not get off to the start they were looking for during its 427 season-ending, sectional loss to Adams Central Friday. With 6:48 to go in the first, the Jets picked off a Robbie Cole pass and ran it back for a 44-yard score. After converting the two-point try, the Flying Jets took off to an 8-0 lead. Adams Central would kick off by using a punt with Nathan Hollars giving the Knights great field position

at the 44. Again, the Jet defense forced an interception and led the Knights 8-0 after one. The Jets struck early in the second to increase the lead to 14-0. The Jets built the lead to 21-0 before the Knights got on the board. Just seconds before the half, Robbie Cole would connect with Kyle Weaver for a 44yard scoring strike to make the score 217 at the half. Adams Central dominated the second half. The Flying Jets outscored Southwood 13-0 in the third quarter and 8-0 in the fourth.

Historical Society Program on Chautauqua; Manchester Symphony Orchestra presents Professor Thelma Rohrer to speak Are you curious about that strange name, Chautauqua? Chautauquas were all the rage in the days before radio and television, and communities looked forward to them with great anticipation. On Tuesday, Oct. 30,

the North Manchester Historical Society presents Manchester University Professor Thelma Rohrer in a special program on the Chautauqua Movement in the United States. The program is a special “bonus” program, an

family concert

addition to the regular monthly lectures the Society presents at Timbercrest. It will be held at the Center for History, 122 E. Main Street, at 7 p.m. A Powerpoint presentation will illustrate the talk. The Chautauqua learning community was established in Chautauqua, New York, in 1874 as a vacation learning experience for Sunday school teachers. It almost immediately broadened to include academic subjects, music, art and physical education. “Tent” or “circuit” Chautauquas traveled throughout the United States. The most distinguished speakers and lecturers of the time toured with the movement. The C h a u t a u q u a Institution continues

today, where about 7,500 people attend daily, and over 140,000 visitors benefit from their 9-week summer program. Professor Rohrer is Chair of the Department of Art at M a n c h e s t e r University, Director of the Honors Program, and Director of International Studies and Academic Enrichment. She has an extensive list of research and teaching experiences. Rohrer is in charge of study abroad opportunities and encourages students to “Study art. Explore the world!” She became interested in Chautauqua while writing about the artist Frank Beard for the American National Biography and the Ohio Artists Project, which led her to various research

sites, including to Chautauqua, NY. The program is part of the yearlong Year of the Opera Curtain celebration presented by the NM Historical Society, 14 separate events inspired by the restoration of a rare 1910 opera curtain in the society’s collection. “A program on Chautauquas is a perfect fit for our Year of the Opera Curtain,” said Mary Chrastil, Historical Society President. “The C h a u t a u q u a Movement was extremely popular in the Midwest. Traveling Chautauqua groups toured for 50 or more years, including regular stops in North Manchester. Today, it continues to host the most interesting speakers and authors. I would love to spend a week on their campus

one day.” Because of the downtown sidewalk construction project, access to the Center for History is available through the front door, but also through the door in the alley to the west of the building. There is ample parking available in

the city parking lot behind the Center. There is no cost for the program, and free admission to the museum will also be extended for the evening. Visitors can see the restored 1910 opera curtain that inspired the program. All are welcome.

The holiday season is upon us, which means

it’s time for shopping. North Manchester wel-

comes all to join local retailers for the annual Holiday Open Houses scheduled for Friday, Nov. 9, Saturday, Nov. 10 and Sunday, Nov. 11. The participating businesses are as follows: At Home Again,

Please check individual stores for dates of participation and hours. Come and browse their holiday product display, seasonal specials, and more. “It is the hope of the Chamber to encourage people to shop local,” said Executive Director Tim McLaughlin. “Many of our stores and retailers are primed with all kinds of things that would make for fantastic Christmas ideas. Our retailers report year after year that many people come from as far as Fort Wayne to spend a day shopping in North Manchester and we want to encourage our local consumers to do the same,” added McLaughlin. “The Chamber encourages everyone to spend some time in our local retail stores over this three day event to take advantage of many great savings.” The Holiday Open House weekend is sponsored by the Retail Committee, a division of the North Manchester Chamber of Commerce.

Arts Midwest World Fest program brings third group to the region

As part of Arts Midwest’s World Fest Program, the third ensemble to visit the region will be Qawal Najmuddin Saifuddin & Brothers of Pakistan. This is the third of four international music ensembles to be visiting during the program’s two-year series. The purpose of the program is to foster an understanding of and appreciation for global uniqueness and differences through music. Qawal Najmuddin Saifuddin and Brothers are the sons of Ustad Qawal B a h a u d d i n Khansahab, the legendary maestro of the Khusrou tradition of qawwali singing.

They are also the direct descendants of the first qawwali choirs dating back to the 13th century. Now the torchbearers of more than 700 years of this mystical Sufi devotional singing tradition, Qawal Najmuddin Saiffudin & Brothers will travel from their Pakistan home in Karachi to share this magical musical experience with communities in the Midwest. During a weeklong residency, the brothers will host school performances in Wabash and Blackford counties. Held in coordination with the Honeywell Center’s Educational Outreach Program, these assemblies are

designed to enhance the audience’s understanding and appreciation of these cultures and performing arts in an accessible and lasting manner. In 2010, Arts Midwest World Fest announced Wabash as one of its nine host cities in its 2011-2013 series. The program presents international music ensembles to smaller Midwest communities. The musical ensembles, representing distinct cultures, will tour select communities in nine states served by Arts Midwest. The Art Midwest World Fest program selected Wabash for its active arts community and relative location to

Hartford City, which is home to a 3M plant. 3M, based in Minneapolis, is a major supporter of the World Fest program. “Arts Midwest World Fest pairs greatly with our Educational Outreach Program,” said Honeywell Center Program Manager, Andrea Zwiebel. “Both have a passion for arts-in-education programming and strive to give students an opportunity to learn about art and culture. Together we’re giving students a better idea of what life and music is like in other countries, and it’s very exciting to be part of the process.”

Family Foundation Challenges Museum to Raise Funds

A private family foundation from Indiana, with ties to Wabash, has challenged the Wabash County Historical Museum to raise funds for the museum’s annual operating expenses. According to Tracy Stewart, executive director of the museum, members of this family recently visited the museum recently and were “excited by the quality of our exhibits and the educational possibilities. They understand that running a facility of this size and caliber takes an operating budget to match. They also heard about some HVAC issues we had this summer and want to help us cover those unexpected expenses.” To encourage others to give generously to the museum’s 2012 annual operating fund drive, the family, who chooses to remain anonymous, has agreed to match any donations over $100, up to a total of $15,000. The match will be in effect from now until the end of the year. Lee Ann George, president of the museum’s board of directors, expressed her admiration for the anonymous family foundation. “People who give so generously to the museum deserve the gratitude of everyone in the county. We all benefit from the success of the museum. From the school groups who learn so

much, to the casual visitor, the museum is a great asset.” Stewart added, “The economic impact of the museum on the county can’t be overlooked either, and this family was interested in that aspect as well. When they saw the large percentage of names in our guest book came from all over the state and the world, they understood that the museum is also an important piece of tourism in the county.” “This gift has the

potential to make our financial picture much brighter. Those donors who can’t afford the $100 match amount, might consider a group gift with friends, family members, or organizations they belong to. Even if it isn’t $100, every gift is appreciated,” said George. “This is your museum and we need your financial help.” To donate to the museum’s annual operating fund, send checks or money orders payable to the Wabash County Historical

A public concert will also be held at the Honeywell Center on Fri., Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m. The public concert will allow anyone from the region to experience Qawal Najmuddin Saifuddin & Brothers and the culture of Pakistan. Tickets must be pur-

chased. The public will be able to meet the brothers in the lobby immediately following the concert. Complimentary refreshments will be served. Finishing out the series will be Cudamani from the village of Pengosekan

in Bali. The Indonesian group will arrive in the area April of 2013, and will bring highly creative musical and dance performances to regional schools, culminating in a live performance at the Honeywell Center.

THE WEATHER HAS BEEN really nice lately. Not to date

me, but I can remember the snow up to my waist when I was little getting on the bus (of course I was a shorter) and then the blizzard of 1978 when the snow closed many roads. They had to be dipped out by the County to a one-lane road to get through. If you met a car in the middle of the mile, someone had to back up. During the blizzard of 1983, after several days of being shut in

at home, we were going stir crazy and as soon as the road was cleared we went to town in our Maverick and the snow on the side of the road was piled higher than the car. So even though the winters haven’t been bad of late, this winter could be the one. THE LAKETON PLEASANT TWP ASSOCIATION held its October meeting on Monday, Oct. 29, at 7 p.m. Festival high-

lights, and possible new officers for the 2013 year were discussed.

A ghost investigation experience

By Ashley Flynn As the air turns crisp and the days fall short, we suddenly become aware of the mysteries around us. That stray black cat becomes a sign of bad luck; the creaks in the floorboards make us snuggle a little closer, and campfire stories keep old legends and ghost stories alive. Last month, two of my friends and I had the opportunity to join over 60 other curious people on a ghost investigation at the 4th Annual Dining with Ghosts event hosted by the Ghost Hunter’s Investigation Group in Wabash. This year the event was also cohosted by M.R.I.P.A., a well-respected paranormal group based in Indianapolis founded by Jason Baker. We gathered in the Star Lodge, near the former location of Miller’s Merry Manor, as we awaited the night’s activities. Large circle tables encouraged conversation among groups before dinner was served. We talked about our interests and experience with the paranormal. “Do you guys really believe in this stuff ?” one member of the table asked. Everyone chimed in to share a story about strange noises in the night or an unexplainable event. Whether we believed it was really a ghost or not didn’t matter. There are just some things that can’t be explained, and we were all curious to see if we would get some answers by the end of the night.

The catered dinner consisted of chicken, roast beef, mashed potatoes, green beans, desserts and more. After everyone’s stomachs were satisfied, Sara Correll, a co-founder of GHIG, spoke briefly about the evening’s agenda and introduced the guest speaker, Ronald Woodward. Woodward is from New Albany, and has lived in Wabash for 36 years. He is a retired schoolteacher and is passionate about learning about the paranormal. He doesn’t do investigations, but he researches articles and the origins of how ghost stories or legends get started. Woodward talked about many wellknown local legends such as hanging rock and other Native American gravesites and a few legends I had never heard of such as a panther that haunts Wabash at

night with its cries. Woodward also describes his experiences in his home. He purchased an old radio over 200 miles away. When he got it home he discovered the radio had been assembled in Wabash, and when he turned it on the stations played music and broadcasts from the 1930s, the same decade the radio was made. Thinking it was a special broadcast, Woodward turned it off and put it away. The next day, he turned it back on, and it continued to play the same kinds of programs. Since then, he has not played the radio, and it is kept in storage. After exciting us with stories and legends from Wabash County, we split into small groups to prepare for the investigation. My friends and I were in the group with Curt Correll, cofounder and lead investigator of GHIG.

Probably like many of the others, I had no idea what to expect. The only previous ghost hunting I had done is running around in supposed haunted woods with my friends at night. We began by touring the property. As we walked around, Curt explained the equipment we would be using. A K2 meter locates sources of electromagnetic radiation. Although its not intended to find ghosts, it was made a popular ghost investigation tool from the television series, “Ghost Hunters.” It is believed that ghosts have strong electromagnetic fields, and “if the EMF is strong with nothing electrical around, it could be a sign of a spirit,” said Sara Correll. They use K2 meters to communicate with spirits by asking questions to see if the meters lights go up. We also used a voice

recorder that may be able to pick up other noises we can’t hear normally. After the walk around the property we stopped by a campfire. A few people who had worked in the nursing home were already sitting around the fire. They shared their experiences at the property and believed they knew many of the spirits by name. They also talked about the

panther Woodward had mentioned earlier. They said they could hear it crying at night and may have even seen it. When I asked Sara about her favorite legend, she also mentioned the Black Panther. “We know several people who have seen it personally or know people who have. All of these people are very well respected from Wabash and

Wabash County,” said Sara. After hearing more about the panther story, we all listened to the night around us a little closer. We heard coyotes in the distance, but the panther kept quiet. When it was our turn to investigate the Lodge, we went in and sat in the lobby. All the lights were out and we felt our way around the room. (continued on page 35)

Community Hospital with severe internal injuries and broken bones in his legs. He was later flown by Life Line Helicopter to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. He was not wearing a seat belt, which Trooper Williams believes would have reduced the severity of his injuries. Schrimshear was transported by ambulance to Saint Joseph’s Hospital

with a complaint of back pain. Her two year-old son, Maeson Schrimshear, was also transported to Saint Joseph’s Hospital with contusions to his body. They were properly restrained with a seat belt and child safety seat. Trooper Williams believes the restraints helped reduce the severity of their injuries. This is an ongoing investigation.

Eye in the sky catches traffic violators in Northern Miami County As of Oct. 23, there have been 437 reported traffic fatalities on rural Indiana roadways. That is 38 more lives lost than during this time last year. The Indiana State Police is committed to reducing fatalities on rural roads by utilizing all available resources to combat the deadly increase. The morning of Oct. 24, the Indiana State Police Peru Post utilized a pilot and an airplane from the Indiana State Police

Aviation Section to fly over Northern Miami County observing for motorists breaking Indiana’s traffic laws. The pilot focused his attention on those traffic violations, which have been identified as crash causation factors such as disregarding a traffic control device, speeding, following too closely, and unsafe lane movements. When the pilot witnessed a violation, he would dispatch the offending vehicle iden-

tifying information to a group of four troopers, who were waiting on the ground. A trooper would then stop the vehicle and issue either a ticket or a warning based on the observations of the pilot. Between 9 and 11 a.m., troopers issued 13 traffic citations. Twelve citations were for speeding, with a top speed of 94 miles per hour in a posted 60 miles per hour zone. One citation was issued for following another vehicle too

closely. Officers also issued 22 warnings for various traffic violations. “Our goal is to reduce traffic deaths on our roads and have voluntary compliance of Indiana’s traffic laws,” stated Sergeant Rick Brown, squad leader for the Indiana State Police Peru Post. “We also want the few reckless motorists who endanger the majority to be aware that troopers are watching from the ground and maybe from the sky.”

Bonnie Walters, 93 Member of United Methodist Church June 12, 1919 – Oct. 27, 2012

Bonnie Jean Duffey Walters, 93, beloved daughter, cherished wife, and devoted mother, passed away Saturday, Oct. 27 at Peabody Retirement Community in North Manchester. She was born on a farm north of Lafontaine on June 12, 1919 to John Glenn Duffey and Kate Parker Duffey. Her parents and brothers, Charles Parker Duffey and Dick Duffey preceded her in death. A child of the Great Depression, she graduated from Lafontaine High School in 1937 and attended Ball State Teachers College, receiving a teaching credential in 1939. Bonnie shared her knowledge, curiosity, patience, and humor with students at Lincolnville, Lafontaine, Kewanna, and Rochester schools during her career as an elementary teacher. Bonnie married Russell D. Walters at Lafontaine on April 19, 1941. As the wife of a WWII Army officer, they lived in Alabama, Arkansas, Virginia, Florida, Georgia, and Texas before she returned to Lafontaine when Russell was sent to the European theater. After the war, they lived in Lafontaine, Fulton, Kewanna, and Richland Center before returning to Wabash County. Russell preceded her in death in 1988. She is survived by her daughter, Patricia Ann Walters, Lafontaine, Betty Joan and husband Mark Martens, Rochester, son Charles Robert and wife Connie Beck Walters, Indianapolis, and American Field Service son, Noel Lim and wife Cathy Painter Lim, West Caldwell, N.J.

College Corner Brethren Church announces Intentional Interim Pastor The College Corner Brethren Church is pleased to announce that Rev. Billy Hesketh, formerly of the Milford First Brethren Church in Milford, Indiana, has accepted the call and has begun serving the congregation as an Intentional Interim Pastor. Pastor Billy and his wife Norene came to Wabash after serving as senior pastor in Milford for the past 16-plus years. Prior to that, Billy served as pastor of

children and youth ministries at the Jefferson Brethren Church in Goshen, Indiana. An Intentional Interim Pastor (IIP) is a specialist trained in walking with a congregation during the time between long term pastorates. The role of the IIP is to help a congregation prepare for their next season of ministry. This may involve conflict resolution, reconciliation, vision cast-

ing, church health assessment, or just celebrating a time of blessing for what has taken place and anticipation of what comes next. With tasks in mind and agreed upon with the local congregation an Intentional Interim pastorate is designed for a very specific purpose and for a very specific time period. Pastor Billy has received training with both Intentional Pastoral Ministries and

Titus Ministries and receives ongoing coaching/training with the MOBILIZE ministry arm of the Brethren Church. He feels that this shift of ministry focus fits very well with the gifts and passions of both he and Norene to see healthy congregations practicing healthy ministry. The transition to the Wabash community has been relatively smooth. Billy and Norene have found the congregation to be a genuine and welcoming body and are feeling at home already. They anticipate their time with the College Corner congregation to continue through the spring/summer of 2014.

Observant Neighbors Report Breaking and Entering, Madison County Man Arrested Observant neighbors are responsible for calling the police Oct. 25 after they saw what they believed to be a breaking and entering in progress in southwestern Noble County; a call that resulted in the arrest of a 50 year old man from the Madison County city of Elwood. According to Trooper Justin Snyder, Oct. 25 at approximately 8:30 pm, the Noble County Sheriff Department dispatched a breaking and entering in progress in the 600 block of South

Wildwood Drive at Knapp Lake. Upon arriving in the area, Snyder and Trooper John Silver spoke to the callers who believed that the suspect was still in the residence. After additional troopers arrived, and the residence was surrounded, the suspect, identified as Stephen R. Lawrence, 50, Elwood, was observed in the residence and at approximately 9:45 p.m., he was taken into custody without incident. Further investigation revealed that the residence, whose owners are

Fort Wayne residents, was not occupied by its owners at the time and that Lawrence had been in the area for the last couple of days using a bicycle as a mode of transportation. Lawrence was taken to and incarcerated in the Noble County Jail under an $8,000 cash bond. Formal charges will be filed by the Noble County Prosecutor’s Office. Preliminary charges include: Residential Entry, a Class D Felony, and Criminal Trespass, a Class A Misdemeanor.

A ghost investigation experience... continued from page 29

Once we were all in and settled, Curt turned on the K2 meter and the voice recorder. He called out to the spirits and told them our intentions. He began asking questions, and we waited for a sign. The questions were general yes or no questions. “Is anyone here? Would anyone like to talk to us? Were you a resident at Miller’s Merry Manor?” After a few moments, the K2 meter lit up. Our movements and small chitchats stopped as we all turned our attention to that little handheld device. Curt asked another question, and the lights again went up. “Are you male?” Nothing. “Are you female?” Again, the lights were still. “Would anyone else like to ask something,” Curt asked us. No one said anything. We didn’t know what to ask, and didn’t know if the activity we had just seen meant a spirit was among us. We decided to move to a different room to see what else we could find. We moved to one of the bedrooms, and another person in the group decided to hold the K2 meter. The lights immediately went off and everyone gathered closer. This time the shock died down and the excitement rose. Almost everyone had a question to ask, and more volunteers to hold the meter spoke up. Sometimes lights went off, and sometimes they didn’t, but we all got excited each time that they did. My friend Emily is very fascinated by the paranormal, and when it came her time to hold the meter, she couldn’t hold in her excitement. She asked Curt several questions. “What does all this mean? What’s going to happen?”

While Curt couldn’t say that the lights definitely mean a spirit is present, he did say it’s very possible. He was just as curious as the rest of us, and wants to learn about the paranormal as much as possible. We walked through more rooms and more people had their opportunity to hold the K2 meter. It seemed like questions about Miller’s Merry Manor got the most response, but so did questions about babies. By the time we left, we were all talking and excited about what we had just experienced. While the tour didn’t confirm a ghost, it did make us all even more curious and fascinated by the paranormal. When we got back to Star Lodge, Sara was giving Egyptian Scarab Oracle readings. Emily was very curious, and Sara offered her a reading. Emily reached her hand into the bag and picked up a scarab with pyramids. Sara gave her interpretation, and Emily agreed that it sounded right. “I use my book as a guideline, but then use my sense of picking up on people’s energy to give them more information,” Sara told me later. “I haven’t been told yet that I was wrong.” After the reading, we decided it was time to go home. We did not stay for the big group investigation. We all left with more fascination about the paranormal. Nothing was confirmed or not confirmed, but it did bring up more questions. The investigation was definitely a success, and we all enjoyed the entire evening. Sara and Curt have not yet listened to all the recordings, but will post them when they do. To learn more about what they do visit their website at .

Hayse Monroe Shoemaker and Marie Elizabeth Cook were married on her 18th birthday, Nov. 5, 1952, by the Justice of Peace at the Wabash County courthouse.

They served together, faithfully at College Corner Brethren Church as Deacon and Deaconess and in various other positions including teaching. Family has always been important to them and having time together. When their children and grandchildren were growing up, they planned special trips and outings as a family, which are still great memories for each of them. The faithfulness of Hayse and Liz in whatever they have committed to do have been a great inspiration to their family and friends alike. They currently reside in Zephyrhills, Fla., and attend the Alliance Church. Children are Debbie Sweet, married to Rick Sweet.

Hayse and Liz have eight grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren with one on the way.

Thornton opposes state control of education Dear editor, The recent call by State Superintendent Dr. Tony Bennett for his takeover of school districts and subsequent assignment of those school districts to private management companies should be cause for concern by all citizens and parents across Indiana. Several reasons give cause for rejecting the plan. Since taking legislative action to remove the school General Fund from local tax sources and instead inadequately fund it from the additional one percent state sales tax increase enacted at

the same time, state leaders including Dr. Bennett have increased their demands on local school districts and have stood silently by as significant cuts have become necessary to programs in our local schools. Simultaneously, funds going to the school voucher program have been dramatically increased, as has the emphasis on expanding charter schools. Local schools are now forced to seek referendum approval to meet student program needs. The State of Indiana, through Dr. Bennett’s office, has taken over several

individual schools and has then assigned those schools to private contractors. To date, no definitive data has demonstrated that either approach has increased student achievement, the purported basis for all of the mandated changes. Though the campaign rhetoric would suggest that all of these have been dramatically successful, no evidence exists to make that case. In fact, some reports suggest that the changes have had a negative effect, or no effect, on student learning and student experiences. The movement to

state level control has been constant and entirely without regard to locally elected school board views. The experiment with the state c o n t r o l l e d Department of Child Services has not served Indiana’s children well. Neither will Dr. Bennett’s takeover and reassignment of school districts to private companies. His tenure has a district administrator and as a Superintendent in Indiana provides no evidence of unique success in increasing student achievement and thus provides no evidence that he is wise in this regard

beyond locally accountable and elected school board members. Governance of Indiana’s public schools should remain with locally elected board members. Indiana’s students have made significant gains in achievement. It is appropriate to recognize Dr. Suellen Reed’s impact on those gains along with Indiana Legislators and

WABASH C3 MISSION “ promote the constitution, it’s values and principles and to inspire and empower others to do the same. This is a peaceful mission and we do not advocate intimidation or violence in this process.

We are grateful to the members of Bachelor Creek Church of Christ for the use of their facilities. This event is not sponsored by the church, but by C3, Wabash County Citizens Committed to the Constitution.

Governors who passed and implemented Indiana’s school accountability law nearly a decade ago. Higher rigor, more advanced courses, and tremendous work by local educators and parents along with hard working students made those gains possible. State takeover of local school districts will further enlarge the power and reach

of state government. It will place control of schools too far from the moms and dads of our students. Centralized state control and power are not Hoosier values nor should they be presented as such. We must oppose this power grab – one that will negatively impact our children and our communities. Roger Thornton Leesburg

She indicated that most injured birds are hit by cars. The birds try to catch rodents that feed on things people throw out car windows. She also discussed owl pellets and the different owl calls. She also talked about the Eagle Watch in January and February. Eagles were reintroduced in the 1980’s, and in 2010, there were 140 active nests in the State of Indiana.

WILLIAM EVANS William Evans, Wabash, was recently chosen to be a member of the Selective Service Local Board for Indiana. Evans was born in Wabash and graduated from Wabash High School. Upon graduation, he joined the military. He’s an Air Force veteran, an Army veteran, a Vietnam veteran, and a disabled veteran. He spent four years in the Air Force, two in the Air Force reserves and three in the army. He was also with the Wabash Fire Department for 20 years. Exposure to Agent Orange in 1966 forced him to retire in 1998, when he had a massive heart attack. Evans will serve for the Selective Service System, formerly known as the “draft board,” from Region I.
