Harley escort for veteran memorial convenes at Brandt’s Harley-Davidson by Danielle Smith DSmith

On Sept. 28, over 100 motorcyclists assembled at Brandt’s H a r l e y - D av i d s o n , Wabash, for the purpose of escorting the American Veterans Traveling Tribute (AVTT) to Kokomo, where it was displayed for four days. The tribute consists of an 80 percent replica of the Vietnam Wall, Vietnam time-

line panels, a Walk of Heroes Collection, a World War II Tribute Collection, a Korea Tribute Collection, a 9/11 Tribute, a Fort Hood Tribute and more. It is 370 feet long and eight feet tall at its apex. The purpose of the traveling tribute is to give veterans a chance to visit a memorial without traveling to Washington D.C. and

to provide a valuable educational tool for students. The Kokomo American Legion Riders approached Brandt’s a month and a half ago about the possibility of organizing a motorcycle escort for the memorial. “We were very excited and honored to be a part of it,� said Britt Rager, Brandt’s Harley-Davidson.

The memorial arrived at Brandt’s on Sept. 28 in a large, patriotic trailer. Although the weather turned out to be rainy, the riders still arrived to show their respect and support. “Really it wasn’t all that bad. If you think about the Vietnam vets that spent a lot of rainy days in Vietnam, this is nothing,� said Richard Thomas, membership



with Dr. Gary Smalley Author


chairman for the Fifth District of the American Legion, a member of American Legion Riders and captain of the ride from Brandt’s to Grissom. “We had over 100 bikes here and then they picked up more at Grissom,� Rager said. The riders and the memorial left Brandt’s with an Indiana State Police

escort. “The state police were just fantastic,� Thomas said. “They were on their Harleys and they escorted us from Wabash to Grissom to Kokomo.� As they passed Grissom Air Force Base, the convoy thickened. “We didn’t stop there,� Thomas said. “What we had there was probably another hundred or so bikes (continued on page 7)

Leadership pushed at Day of Healing

For the past several years, the Wabash Friends Counseling Center has been working to build stronger leaders with its Leadership Luncheon Series. That desire carries over into the Center’s annual Day of Healing: A Personal Growth Conference, according to Scott Makin, MA, LMHC, NCC, director of the Center and organizer of the Day of Healing. This year’s 19th annual Day of Healing will be from 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. on Nov. 5 at the Honeywell Center and Charley Creek Inn in Downtown Wabash. Dr. Gary Smalley, one of the country’s bestknown authors and speakers on relationships, will be the keynote speaker and will also present one of four leadership track workshops. Smalley’s workshop is entitled “How Christ’s Words Change People Over Night” and falls under both the E m o t i o n a l I n t e l l i g e n c e Leadership Track and Church Leadership Track. It will be conducted in the ballroom of the Charley Creek Inn. The other three leadership workshops are entitled “Managing You in 2011,” “Building Resilience for High Performing Leaders and Organizations” and “The Idol of Idealism.” Ed Turi, vice president and business development consultant for Right M a n a g e m e n t , Indianapolis, will present “Managing

You in 2011.” A graduate of the University of Notre Dame and Bryant University, Turi is an entrepreneurial executive with more than 15 years experience leading, developing and managing growth in the areas of marketing and business development. He is also an adjunct professor at Anderson University. Armed with a master’s degree in business administration from Xavier University and a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering from Purdue University, Byron Stock is president of Byron Stock and Associates, St. Joseph, Mich. He has 16 years experience in emotional intelligence skill building, which leads to a positive impact in both individual and organizational resilience and agility. No stranger to the area, Stock has presented at the Leadership Luncheon Series at the Friends Church, recently did a seminar at H u n t i n g t o n University and has also traveled to Australia, Mexico and Abu Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. On Oct. 18 he will present his Day of Healing workshop as part of the Leadership Luncheon Series at Taylor Chapel United Methodist Church, Fort Wayne. Denny Wilson, senior pastor at Warsaw Community Church, Warsaw, will lead the workshop on “The Idol of Idealism.” There also will be

two DVD workshops during the lunch break from 11:35 a.m. to 1:25 p.m. The first is entitled “Leadership” and features George Barna, who will be the featured speaker at the 2012 Day of Healing. The second is entitled “Boundaries in Leadership” by Dr. John Townsend, who has been the featured speaker at four previous Day of Healing events. The next Leadership Luncheon will be on Oct. 13. Grace United Methodist Church in Kokomo will host the series and Bryan Orander, president of Charitable Advisors and Not-for-Profit News, will speak on “Go Slow to Go Fast – The Value of Trust.” On Oct. 20 at Anderson Eastside

Church of God, a speaker on the national scene, Dr. John Townsend, will be present a leadership training on “Being a Leader Whom People Want to Follow.” To register or for more information on all the Leadership Luncheon events, call the Wabash Friends Counseling Center at 877-350-1658 or go online at and click on “Leadership Series.” The Day of Healing has become the largest one-day selfhelp conference in Indiana and the last three years was attended by approximately 900 people from Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio and Missouri.

Indiana’s 2011 deer season began with the opening day of early archery, Oct. 1

Hunters must possess a valid deer hunting, youth, lifetime comprehensive hunting, or apprentice deer hunting license to legally pursue deer. Hunter education is required for anyone born after Dec. 31, 1986; however, individuals of any age may buy an apprentice license without having to take hunter

education provided they are hunting with a licensed mentor. Individuals are limited to three apprentice hunting licenses in their lifetime. Legal archery equipment includes long bows, compound bows and recurve bows. A bow must have a minimum draw weight of 35 pounds. Arrows must

be tipped with broadheads that are metal, metal-edged, or napped flint, chert or obsidian. Crossbows are not legal for use in the early season, but are legal in the late season, Dec. 3-Jan. 1. “Last year archery deer hunters harvested approximately 28,000 deer,” said Mitch Marcus,

wildlife section chief. “Providing the weather cooperates and deer hunters take to the field, this should prove to be another great deer hunting season.” Hunters should stay safe in the field by following basic tree-stand safety rules. “Hunters should always wear a har-

ness and have three points of contact with the tree during their ascent and descent,” said Lt. Bill Browne, DNR Law Enforcement. “Falling from a tree stand accounts for a large percentage of hunting related accidents and is totally preventable. “Don’t fall asleep. If you feel drowsy, move

your arms and splash water on your face until feeling alert.” Anyone with questions regarding deer hunting rules, regula-

The one with a shower curtain in the background 78 percent: That’s the percentage of teens who prefer how they look in their Facebook profile picture compared to real life. How many times did it take to get that pic just right? After all, it is a process deciding how close to stand to the mirror and how high to hold the camera. For every profile picture we post, there are several we delete. Each image we decide we can use is preceded by ones that just weren’t good

enough; rarely do we get it right the first time. I am so glad God doesn’t work like us; God gets it right the first time, every time.

Happening Here.

Sandy Fiedeke is passionate about two things: her family and travel. In 2004, prior to leaving for a vacation, Sandy felt a lump in her breast. “Finding a lump takes your breath away… like a punch to the gut,” she said. Sandy punched back, contacting Dr. KT Kishan to immediately remove the lump. She completed chemotherapy and radiation treatment at the KCH Cancer Care Center. Sandy consistently monitored her health. In 2009, Sandy began to experience unusual back pain. Tests confirmed that cancer had returned. Sandy is aggressively in treatment today.


Sandy said, “You think going for cancer treatment will be a bummer. For me, it’s not as my family goes with me. People told me that I need to go to a bigger city for cancer treatment, but why? Dr. Goksel pays attention to me as an individual and connects with other cancer experts across the country. Dr. Goksel says my grandson is my best medicine. It’s true. Jenson will be walking soon. And I’ll be chasing after him!”

Banks said the elimination of this tax might also help address another concern facing Indiana the number of older Hoosiers leaving the state. “By eliminating this burdensome tax, we are encouraging h a rdwo rk i n g Hoosiers to retire in Indiana and pass along their wealth to family or friends without the fear of government intrusion,” he said. Banks also said eliminating the inheritance tax could help improve Indiana’s economic climate by encouraging wealth and resources to remain in the state.

GENE BEHNY celebrated 60 years of marriage on Sept. 26 with “death tax” earlier a celebration at the Honeywell Center, hosted by their children. (photo provided) this year. Gene and Lavon (Michel) Behny, 1602 Frantz Dr., North Manchester, were married 60 years on Sept. 26. The couple was married on Sept. 26, 1951, at Wabash Church of the Brethren. Gene retired from North Central Co-op L.P. Department in 1995 after being in the L.P. gas business for 25 years. He was formerly a farmer, and since retirement he had worked part-time for North Central Co-op and Scott’s Landscaping, and he still works part-time for Runkel Farms. He was a member of the Wabash County 4-H Fair Board for 15 years. He is a Korean War veteran, having served from 1951 until 1956. Lavon retired as secretary-treasurer of Manchester Junior High School in 1995, after 19 years. Both are members of First Brethren Church, North Manchester, where Gene served as trustee for 10 years. The past eight years, they have attended The Chapel, Fort Wayne. They have three children, three grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and 12 step-great-grandchildren. The couple was surprised recently with a celebration held at the Honeywell Center, hosted by their children, David and Cheryl Basham, Fredericksburg, Va., and Ronnie and Lynne Behny, North Manchester. Others attending from North Manchester included: Jerry and Leanne Flinn, Robert and Joan Michel, Meagan and Claire Flinn, Rick and Nan Michel, Chad and Lea Howard, Tom and Jane Ann Airgood, Betsy Reed and Charlee, Jim and Vickie Smith, Roberta Runkel, Gary and Karen Runkel, Steve and Cindy Runkel, Rick and Carolyn Runkel, Carolyn Harting, Bill and Susan Greer, Scott and Deb Manges, Stu and Ruth Hawley, Jim and Shirley Mishler, Al and Teresa Bailey, Chris Huffman and Chuck Eckert. Also attending were: Kevin and Sherry Flinn, Kyle and Brittany Huffman, Braiden Flinn and Lacy Boyles, all of Fort Wayne; Nathan, Emily, Aidan and Ella Behny, all of Warsaw; Don and Janie Shank and Dick and Lois Norwood, all of Huntington; Steve and Nancy Anderson, both of Urbana; Ed and Becky Shear, both of Wabash; Andy and Missy Flinn and Lowell Lindzy, all of Silver Lake; Jim and Janet Speicher, both of Kokomo; Mark and Peggy Michel, both of Claypool, DeLaney Powell of Goshen; Ed and Roberta Foor, near Denver, IN both of Rochester; and Derek, Christa, Cole and Mathis Holbert, all of Indianapolis.

when it met at 10 a.m. Banks (RColumbia City) said he plans to once again introduce legislation to end what is commonly referred to as the “death tax.” “ B e n j a m i n Franklin once said ‘in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes,’” said Banks. “When he made that statement, I don’t believe he ever anticipated taxes to follow someone after death. It’s time we joined the vast majority of states who no longer burden residents with this outdated tax.” Banks said the death tax affects those who are residents of the state when they die. He explained the tax is levied against the heir who receives the inheritance - not including spouses and charitable organizations. The legislation Banks proposed calls for a five-year phase out. Tax rates vary depending on the beneficiary’s relationship with the descendent. For example, children are taxed at a lesser rate than a distant cousin, who would in turn be taxed at a lesser rate than a

Pierceton Presbyterian Church 112th Harvest Home Dinner P i e r c e t o n Presbyterian Church is preparing for the 112th Annual Harvest Home Dinner on Oct. 8. The traditional all-meat chicken pie will be served from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the church, which is located in Pierceton on SR 13. In 1859, seven years after Pierceton was laid out, 15 people became the charter members of the Presbyterian Church, Pierceton. By 1879, the membership had grown to 163. The first church was erected in 1865. This building was razed in 1906, and a new structure was started the following year and dedicated in 1909. Additions have been made over the years to accommodate for changes. A new fellowship hall was added on in 2004 and has become the dining hall for Harvest Home attendees. The first chicken pie dinner was held in 1897. The second was on Oct. 6, 1900. At first, the chicken pie was served only as a noon meal. One year there was such a small noon crowd that it was decided to open for the evening. An anonymous young man changed

the course of history by taking a large hand bell and traveling all over town ringing the bell and shouting that chicken pie was available for supper that night. Everything sold out and tradition of serving two meals has continued to this day. Harvest Home features the famous chicken pie made by the people of the church. The pies are made of chicken and gravy, with no fillers, in very large, deepdish pans. Each pie can serve 10 hungry p e o p l e . Approximately 100

pies are made each year for the Harvest Home Dinner. They also have a gift shop with crafts and food items made by church members. The proceeds from these sales go to the Presbyterian Women to use for missions. Become a part of a warm and tasty tradition. Come and join then for the 112th Annual Harvest Home Chicken Pie Dinner at the Pierceton Presbyterian Church on Oct. 8. Carry-out is also available, and there is additional parking behind the church.

Four lessons in the way we should treat people


by Bill Barrows There are numerous times in our lives where we become so consumed in our own world that we sometimes forget that there are others who have a very important purpose. Alas, sometimes we forget to slow down long enough to notice. A friend of mine sent me a note a couple of years ago. It was just a note of friendship. It contained a couple of things to think about. Ironically, the first

lesson I had learned personally during my freshman year of college. I have remembered the meaning of it ever since. The First Very Important Lesson: During the first semester of college, a professor of a class that I was taking gave a pop quiz. I had breezed through the questions. The last one stopped me in my tracks. What is the name of the woman who cleans this building? I originally thought it was a joke. I had seen this woman a few times as I hurried in and out of the classrooms. She was dark headed and probably in her 50’s, but I had no idea who she was. I was about to hand in my paper leaving the last question blank, when a student on the other side of the room asked the professor if that question counted on the quiz grade. He said “Absolutely. In your career, you will meet a lot of people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and respect, even if all you do is smile and say hello.” I never forgot that lesson…the lady’s name

was Dorothy, we called her Dotty. The Second Important Lesson: One night, just before midnight, an older African-American woman was standing on the side of the road during a driving rainstorm. Her car had broken down and she was trying to flag down help that she desperately needed. A young white man stopped to help her, generally unheard of in those conflict-filled 1960’s. The man took her to safety, helped her get assistance and paid for her ride in a taxi to her destination. She seemed in a big hurry, but wrote down the man’s name and address as she thanked him. A short time passed and there was a knock at the man’s door. To his surprise, a delivery man brought in a console color TV. A special note was attached: “Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway the other night. The rain drenched not only my clothes, but also my spirits. Then you came along. Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying husband’s bedside just before he passed away…God bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving others.” The note was signed, Mrs. Nat King Cole. Think about the impact that man had on a woman who was emotionally stressed as well as physically in discomfort. The Third Important Lesson: I’m old enough to remember when an

ice cream sundae was much less money than it would be today. A friend told this story: Many years ago, a little boy, who was probably around 10 years old, pulled himself up to the counter of an ice cream parlor and asked the lady behind the counter how much an ice cream sundae would be? Fifty cents, was the reply from the waitress. The little boy examined the coins in his hand. “Okay, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?” The waitress began to grow impatient as there were other customers waiting. “Thirty-five cents,” she replied. The boy looked again at coins and said, ”I’ll have the plain ice cream, please.” The waitress put the ice cream on the counter, laid down a written bill and walked away. The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and left. When the waitress came back to clean the area, she began to cry as she wiped down the counter. There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were two nickels and five pennies. The boy couldn’t justify having the sundae because he had to have enough left to leave the waitress a tip. There’s a strong note of responsibility and kindness in a 10-year-old child that should be a lesson to all of us. The Fourth Important Lesson: A volunteer working at

a hospital a few years ago told this story about a little girl named Liz who was suffering from a rare disease. Her only chance appeared to be a complete blood transfusion from her five-year-old brother, who had survived the same blood disease and had developed the antibodies needed to combat the illness. The doctor explained the situation to the little brother and asked if he would be willing to give his blood to his sister. The little boy hesitated for a minute, took a deep breath and told the doctor that he would do it if it would save his sister’s life. As the transfusion progressed, he laid there in the bed next to his sister. As the color returned to her face, there was joy in the room and everyone was smiling. Then, the boy’s face grew pale and his smile faded. He looked up at the doctor and asked, “Will I start to die right away?” The little boy had thought that he was going to have to give his sister all of his blood in order to save her life. This little boy was willing to pay the ultimate price to save his sister. That’s a pretty strong message to us all. All of these stories contain lessons that show the four character traits of the YMCA: caring, responsibility, respect and responsibility.

Janet Leeka gives program for P.E.O. Janet Leeka presented a program when Chapter BY, P.E.O., met on Sept. 12 at the home of Ellen Harmsen, with Beth Perkins and Dorotha Harvey acting as co-hostesses. Leeka’s program covered the time when she ran a Bed and Breakfast on West Hill Street during the years of 1995 until 2002. She told of the many interesting people who stayed there, many returning time and time again. She said she was never afraid when strangers

appeared at the door, but that she did get awfully tired of making waffles over the years. Members were reminded to keep looking for ways of living “green”, through the use of cloth bags for groceries and other purchases. The next regular meeting of the Chapter will be on Oct. 10 at the Grandstaff-Hentgen Community Room, with Karen Huber as hostess and Diane England in charge of the program. On Oct.

24, which is a guest night, the Chapter will gather at the Wine Shop at the Charley Creek Inn for a cheese and wine tasting party. On Nov. 7, Chapter BY will celebrate the date of its founding at a dinner at the Honeywell House, at which time Gaye Ingold from Chapter DK in North Manchester will present the report of the International Convention, which was held in St. Louis on Sept. 29 through Oct. 1.

Peter Twist to command Crown forces at 1812 reenactment

When the British come to Grant County, they are under the command of Brig. Gen. Peter Twist, and when the Royal Navy turns its attention to Capt. Jack Sparrow, it, too, follows Twist’s orders. Once again, Twist will command Crown forces – British, Canadian and American Indian – for the Oct. 7-9 Mississinewa 1812 living history event. Disney moviemakers followed Twist’s military advice when making the Pirates of the Caribbean series. “It’s fun doing this sort of thing,� Twist says. “It’s always been an interest of mine. My biggest job at Mississinewa 1812 is stage-managing the Crown forces. I watch and I tweak. Everything is done in military style and language. I essentially do

what modern generals do, but without the modern conveniences.� Twist attends to detail not only on the Mississinewa 1812 battlefield and drills, but also in attire, language, weaponry and equipment. If it’s under his command, it’s accurate. His reputation for authenticity is why he was the technical advisor for and an actor in Disney’s four Pirates of the Caribbean movies, starring Johnny Depp as Capt. Jack Sparrow. Twist’s background includes engineering, fine arts and teaching, and he has mixed those with his love of history. “I’ve contracted with museums since the early 1980s,� Twist says. “That led to the film work and documentary work. The next project being released is PBS’s The

Mark Marks and Justin Bradford are uncles; Kayla Bradford is an aunt.

Derck family welcomes son

Jed and Nicki Derck, LaFontaine, are the parents of a son born Aug. 9, 9:08 p.m., at Marion General Hospital. Ritter Edward Derck weighed 8 pounds, 4 ounces, and was 20.5 inches long. His mother is the former Nicki Torres. Grandparents are Tom and Veva Torres, Wabash, and Jim and Robin Derck, LaFontaine.

War of 1812, scheduled for Oct. 10.� (The War of 1812 is scheduled for broadcast at 8 p.m. Oct. 10 on PBS stations.) Twist lives near Orangeville, Ont., a town about the same size as Marion located northwest of Toronto. Along with his work as a reenactor and technical advisor, he manages Twist Miniature Design Inc., which makes historically accurate miniature military figures. He also has worked on several prototypes, including a number of G.I. Joe figures, for toy companies Hasbro and Mattel. “Anything that has to do with the 1812 era in the United States and Canada, Peter Twist is an expert about, and people look to him for his advice,� says P. Martin Lake, co-founder and president of the Mississinewa Battlefield Society. “He has been with Mississinewa 1812 since Day 1, except when he has been working on movies, such as Pirates of the Caribbean.� Twist’s Crown forces take to the battlefield during the three days of Mississinewa 1812, and they participate, with American forces, in daily demonstrations of military life, skills and drills. All facets of Mississinewa 1812 – military and civilian – are as authentic as possible, with consid-

eration given to modern safety and sanitation, from the clothing to the weapons to the camping and bivouac material. Mississinewa 1812, the largest War of 1812 living history event in the United States, is a historical commemoration of the Battle of Mississinewa of Dec. 17-18, 1812. The battle, fought in what later became northern Grant County, was one of the major land engagements of the war, and it was the United States’ first offensive victory of the war. Because the battlefield is hallowed ground, the reenactment is held a short distance away, on the banks of the Mississinewa River, about six miles north of Marion on SR 15. The event will include: - Military encampments. Daily life of U.S. and British sold i e r s . Demonstrations throughout the day include artillery firing, military drills, musket and rifle drills, battlefield surgery and battle reenactments. - Indian village. Mississinewa 1812 features the largest reconstructed woodland Indian village in the United States. Demonstrations include fire-starting, cooking and other areas of American Indian life. - Rivertown. More than 130 merchants,

Wabash man dead after motorcycle accident The Indiana State Police is investigating a motorcycle crash in which a Wabash County man died after crashing into a building. Recently, Indiana State Trooper Mike Lorona clocked, with radar, two motorcycles traveling in excess of 100 miles per hour southbound on U.S. 31, near Business 31. Lorona initiated a traffic stop on U.S. 31 near Hoosier Boulevard. Lorona placed his vehicle between the two motorcycles, as they both appeared to be pulling onto the side of the road. As the police car and the motorcycles pulled onto the shoulder, the motorcycle in front of Lorona stopped. The motorcycle behind Lorona allegedly sped off and turned west onto Hoosier Boulevard. Trooper Lorona made a u-turn and

attempted to locate the motorcycle which had failed to stop. He was not chasing the motorcycle. Lorona traveled west on Hoosier Boulevard but did not have a visual on the fleeing motorcycle. He eventually came upon a HarleyDavidson motorcycle, which had crashed into the Grissom office building, near the main gate of the Grissom Air Reserve Base. The driver, identified as Joseph K. Anderson, 45, Wabash, was ejected from the motorcycle and found nearby. Anderson was unconscious, but breathing. He was airlifted from the scene and taken to Parkview Hospital, Fort Wayne. He later succumbed to injuries sustained in the crash. This crash is still under investigation.

M i r i a m Linkenhoker and Evelyn Dingess, The chair heads of Laketonian Festival Committee would like to thank everyone who volunteered to help on the festival this year, and especially everyone who attended the festival despite the rainy weather. THE GARDEN TRACTOR PULL was held during the Laketonian Days festival, where the tractor pullers battled the weather to

make their pulls. People from as far away as Elkhart County enjoyed the muddy efforts of everyone to have a great time in the mud and rain. Top pullers were: Kids Class, Wade Frantz of Wabash County; 10-12 hp Class, Travis Steel of Elkhart County; 1416 hp Class, Roger Lochner of Wabash County; and 16-18 hp Class, Modified, Jeff Miller of Elkhart County. Roger Lochner and Dennis Dingess would like to thank the people who made this happen: Tanker Trailers Inc. for the use of their land; Tony Janeway, Cripe Trucking and Blocker Trucking for hauling; Chuck Shane for clay donation; Paul James for light poles; Bill Dyson and Dan

Eilts for ground work; Keith and Penny Ogan for money; Denver Lions for tractor sled and scales; and Brittany, Caitlin, and Amy Dingess, Gloria Hopkins, Dewayne Glass, Larry Hively, Ryan Frantz, Ron and Elaine England, Evelyn Dingess, Bill Proffitt, and Marc Day donated their time. A special thanks to all the garden tractor pullers who helped make this a great success. Another garden tractor pull will be held in October, weather permitting. L A K E T O N SEWER: A steering committee was formed in hopes of solving the growing problem of overflowing septic systems and contamination found in the

Eel River. It has been led from the beginning by Stan Bagley. “What we are focusing on now are the income surveys we sent out. We mailed them out within the District, but have received about 60 percent of them back.” He said the surveys are important because they will determine the income level of those living in the District and what financial assistance they will receive from the USDA. “It could mean the difference between receiving 45 percent funding and 75 percent funding,” Bagley noted. “The information goes directly to Indianapolis, is calculated and the final numbers are sent to the USDA. It is all confidential and the information

will help keep the costs down.” The Region sewer district has been established and the P r e l i m i n a r y Engineering Study has been done. Now, the surveys will determine the amount of grants depending on the income of the community. There is a possibility of a 30 percent difference between what we have now and what it could be. This survey will decide how much financial assistance thru Grants we could qualify for. REMEMBER if you have any news you want to share with us call me at 260-225-5731 or email me at by Thursday the week before to be included. Thanks.

HISTORY PICTURE: As Northfield changes principals, I thought I would go back in the next couple of weeks and review past principals at Northfield. This is a picture of Wilbur Dawes who served as the first principal of Northfield from 1962 until he retired at the end of the 1969-1970 school year. From his first schooling in a one-room school at Half Acre to a junior-senior high school of 40 teachers, Mr. Dawes rapidly became a landmark of the community. After an eighth grade diploma from Half Acre School, he earned a diploma from Urbana High School in 1922, a teaching license from Manchester College in 1924, a B.S. degree in 1934, and a Master’s Degree from Ball State University in 1948. In 46 consecutive years, Mr. Dawes taught grades 4, 5, and 6, high school math, science, and physical education and coached for nine years. Northfield’s football field bears his name. Mr. Dawes still has great grandchildren that attend Northfield.

Northfield Norsemen spoil Wabash homecoming with 39-15 victory


Wabash High School boys tennis team claims sectional title Oct. 1 The Wabash High School boys tennis team won their second straight sectional on Oct. 1 at Thrush Courts, Peru. The Apaches d e f e a t e d Maconaquah 3-2 to win the title.

Wabash defeated Peru 4-1 on Sept. 30 to make it to the final. Justin Middleton won at #1 singles 6-3, 6-1. David Driscoll won at #2 singles 6-4, 7-6(4). Edward Dillard lost at #3 singles 4-6, 7-

6(1), 6-7(6). JD Boone and Stephan Eilts lost at #1 doubles 1-6, 5-7. Jack Stein and Breyton Nealis won at #2 doubles 6-0, 6-3. The Apaches move to 13-2 and will play in the Culver regional Oct. 4.

NORTHFIELD’S TYLER MORGAN (10) attempts to catch up to a pass thrown by Austin Curless during the first half of the game against Wabash on Sept. 30. The Norse pulled away from the Apaches in the second quarter en route to a 39-15 victory. (photo by Inter-county rivals, Northfield and Wabash, took to the field Sept. 30 at Wabash High School. The contest marked Wabash’s homecoming and alumni night, and kicked off the first weekend of matchups between county rivals in the Three Rivers Conference. Northfield kicked off to Wabash to start the game, and the Apaches moved the ball past the 50-yard line before failing on a fourth down attempt. After turning the ball over to the Norse, Northfield wasn’t able to muster any offensive momentum. On the ensuing punt, the Apaches fumbled and Northfield recovered. With the ball on the Wabash 33, Austin Curless hit Tyler Morgan on a 22-yard pass to the Apache 11yard line. One play later, Dustin Echard took the handoff into the end zone to give Northfield a 6-0 lead. Northfield elected to squib kick the kick-

off, resulting in good field position for the Apaches. Three plays later, Nate Price hit Brian Abell for a 35yard scoring strike putting Wabash in the lead at 7-6. The Apaches then caught the Norsemen off guard with an onside kick and were able to recover the ball, but the Norse defense stood firm and regained possession as the Apache drive stalled. In the second quarter, Northfield moved the ball down the field before hitting pay dirt on an 18-yard touchdown pass to Jared Kirtlan putting the Norse back into the lead at 13-7. Wabash took the kickoff and marched down the field to the Northfield 14, where the Apache drive would stall after three incomplete passes. The Norsemen looked as though they would run the ball as they were deep in their own territory, before Curless hit Andy Roser on consecutive pass plays for 39 yards and then con-

nected with Joe Frieden to the Apache 16-yard line. On the next play, Curless found Kirtlan in the end zone for his second receiving touchdown on the evening with 31.1 seconds left in the half to put the Norse in front 19-7. Northfield again chose to squib kick the kickoff, but this time Hunter Wells recovered the loose ball. Curless then connected with Kirtlan for his third touchdown of the night to close out the half with the Norse in front 267. The Apaches converted their second onside kick of the night with the opening kickoff of the half, but were ultimately forced to punt. Northfield mounted a drive of their own, before Wabash’s Richard Bonshire recovered a Northfield fumble. Again the Norse defense would force a punt from the Wabash offense, but on second down and 18, Wabash’s Logan McDonald intercept-

ed a Curless pass and returning it 52 yards for an Apache touchdown. Brian Abell converted the twopoint play to pull the Apaches within two scores at 26-15. Wabash recovered their third onside kick of the evening on the ensuing kickoff, but again the Northfield defense forced the Apaches to punt the ball away. On the fifth play of the fourth quarter, Curless found Kirtlan again to the Apache 28-yard line. One play later, Andy Roser busted up the middle for a 28-yard touchdown run with 9:08 remaining to make it 32-15. With the Wabash offense failing to move the ball, Wabash attempted a fake punt but was unable to convert. Northfield took advantage and with 5:16 to go, Echard ran in his second touchdown closing out the game for the Norse at 39-15.

Michael Weibel to give presentation Winchester Senior Center Historical Society on decorating Honeywell Center offers day trip on Oct. 20 to present Ron

The Honeywell House will host a presentation by Michael Weibel on Oct. 4 at 7 p.m. The event will feature the history of Weibel’s experience as lead conceptual designer decorating the Honeywell Center during the holidays with the assistance of several volunteers. Weibel began holiday decorating in high school, decorating his home and church as well as directing Christmas pageants. The “Big House,” his home on Thorne Street, was in the Tri Kappa Christmas Tour, but Michael says the fun really began with his third home, which he refers to as the “Country House.”

“We would start decorating it the first of October and leave the decorations up through Valentines Day,” said Weibel. Then in 2005, he assisted Dana Rauh at the Honeywell Center. The following year he was responsible for decorating the original part of the Center with help from Jan Johnson, Carol McVicker and Richard Tucker. “In 2007, I took on responsibility for overseeing the decorating of the entire Center,” Weibel continued. “Now, with added designers, volunteers, and a slew of others, we begin transforming the Center into a holiday wonderland in October so we can be

finished the weekend b e f o r e Thanksgiving.” Last year, decorating the Center took Weibel and his team of 62 volunteers 2,641.5 hours to complete. The planning stage for decorating the Center this year began months ago, and Weibel and his crew are ready to take on the task of preparing the Honeywell Center for another holiday season. This Honeywell House event is free to the public, but due to limited seating, those wishing to attend are asked to make reservations by calling 260563-2326 Ext. 21 or by going online to w w w. h o n e y w e l l

Ron Woodward will present the program on “The Jewish Experience in Wabash”. Ron has been the Wabash County Historian since 1981, and has a wealth of knowledge on Wabash County history. He taught history and social studies for many years for the Wabash Middle School, and while there he sponsored an award winning chapter of the Indiana Junior Historical Society for 25 years.

Barbara Olenyik Morrow is the author of five books, including the recently released Nature’s Storyteller: The Life of

Gene Stratton-Porter (The Indiana Historical Society Press). During her visit to Wabash, Morrow will discuss her book,

Manchester Squires participate in Purdue’s Annual Band Day

MANCHESTER SQUIRE BAND, along with 28 other bands, participated in Purdue University’s Annual Band Day on Sept. 17. Students had an opportunity to shadow the Purdue “All-American” Marching Band. (photo provided)

On Sept. 17, 28 bands from across Indiana including the Manchester Squire Band descended on Ross-ade Stadium at Purdue University to participate in Purdue’s Annual Band Day. Squire Band Director, Chance Varner said, “It was a great opportunity for our program. It gave our students exposure to a Big 10 program, one of the finest marching bands in the NCAA, and also let students see what the traditions of ‘game day’ can be like at a big school. The part that I loved the most was hearing students talk about Purdue as a possible college choice when previously they might not have considered it. This trip was all about exposure for the students, and they got to see a great university, a great football team, and a great marching band. What’s not to love about that?” The high school students spent the entire day shadowing the Purdue “All-

American” Marching Band as it went through its game-day traditions of the “Thrill on the Hill” pre-game concert, and marching to Ross-ade Stadium to perform outside the stadium before entering for its pre-game show. One Squire Band Member remarked, “I loved that dance thing that the band did during the cadence,” referring to a choreographed step-kick combination that the band does while marching. Another one asked, “Can we do some stuff like what they did?”

During the half time show, the Purdue “A l l - A m e r i c a n ” Marching Band performed the theme song from the TV show “Hawaii 5-0” and then the Golduster Dance Team performed to “Ain’t Nothing Wrong With That” while almost 2,000 musicians joined forces and then marched onto the field to play the theme song from the movie, “Patton”, Chicago’s song, “25 or 6 to 4”, and the theme song from “Rocky”. While the theme from “Rocky” was playing, a member of the

Purdue “AllAmerican” Marching Band’s Big Bass Drum crew was busy doing one-arm pushups and sprinting to the top of the stadium ala Rocky Balboa style. That member was Squire Band Alum, Aric Howard, who is one of the eight members of this year’s Big Bass Drum Crew. The Big Bass Drum is the 90-year-old icon of the Purdue “AllAmerican” Marching Band. It has a crew of four members who push and pull it through the band formations while two beaters play the drum in time with the music. The drum measures close to 10 feet tall when on its carriage and weighs close to 500 pounds. The crew-members are required to try out annually proving that they have the physical ability to maneuver the behemoth. In addition, they are tested on the history of the drum as well as the band and must be able to interact with the public. Even one of the Squire students gushed, “I really wanted to hit the big drum.” One Squire summed up the day, “It was fun... we’re doing it next year, right?”

field questions and sign copies of Nature’s Storyteller. Morrow’s work also includes two children’s picture books, Mr. Mosquito Put on His Tuxedo and A Good Night for Freedom, an U n d e r g r o u n d Railroad story set in Indiana. Both books garnered high praise from reviewers, and Morrow received an award for Mr. Mosquito in April 2010 from Friends of American Writers, an organization that honors emerging Midwestern authors. A St. Louis native, Morrow moved to Auburn in 1979. She is a graduate of Indiana University in Bloomington, where

she received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in journalism. She worked for newspapers for many years and in 1986 was a finalist in editorial writing for the Pulitzer Prize, the most prestigious award in journalism. She speaks frequently in schools and libraries around the state. Her website is The Woman’s Clubhouse will also be dedicating the East Dining Room as “The Gene Stratton-Porter Dining Room” along with an official opening of a museum in

the clubhouse for the authoress, during Morrow’s program. Our own local historian, Juanita Rapp, will portray Gene and present her program on Porter’s life in Wabash. If you attend the clubhouse event, wear your best garden hat. Both the Library and the Clubhouse invite you to attend one of these wonderful programs. You can make luncheon and program reservations for the Clubhouse with Mary DeLauter at the D Shoppe 260563-1420. You do not need a reservation for the library program.

We have received many comments that the most outstanding feature of our festival was Joyunspeakble – Mark Abbati, the living statue from Columbus, Ohio. We have had so many requests to have him back next year. Mark was one of our more costly entertainment events of the festival, but he was here approximately seven hours and the crowd followed him everywhere. Mark does 40 different characters and if we have him again we would of course choose a different one for the 2012 Roann Festival. This will depend on fundraisers, sponsors and donations. Donations may be mailed to Roann Covered Bridge Festival, P.O. Box 322, Roann, IN 46974. We

have a few festival tshirts, adult and several youth sizes, and one sweatshirt. You may call Donna at 765833-5663 or they may be available in the businesses in Roann. Thank you everyone!

Manning encourages voters to select Danielle Stouffer for LaFontaine Clerk-Treasurer do the job and the town board is either unwilling or unable to address the situation. Listed below are some of the discrepancies: The annual report that is required to be filled by the State of Indiana was not filled out in a timely manner for 2009 and 2010 and also contained errors. The report for 2007 and 2008 was incomplete and contained numerous errors. There has been an overdrawn cash balance of the Trash Fund. Since 2006 through the present, the Trash Fund has been overdrawn. It appears this is due to not raising the rates to the residents when

Dear editor, This is a letter to the voters of the Town of LaFontaine. I am asking you to vote for Danielle Stouffer on Nov. 8 for LaFontaine Town C l e r k - T r e a s u r e r. After reading in The Paper that the state had just completed an audit of the financial records of LaFontaine, I went to the State Board of Accounts website and downloaded the last three audit reports for LaFontaine. These audit reports cover six years, as each report is a two-year period. After reading these reports, only one conclusion can be drawn; the Town Clerk-Treasurer is unable or unwilling to

rates are increased by the service provider. There was a nonpayment of the Utility Receipts Tax. Indiana has had a Utility Receipts Tax since 2003 and LaFontaine has never paid this tax. I took the water receipts from these three audit reports and figure LaFontaine could be liable for more than $9,500 during this period. The figures for the 2003 and 2004 are not available for download on the State Board of Accounts website, so I could not include those numbers in my estimate, but I feel that the liability is over $12,000. About 25 percent of this is for penalties and interest and this

could and should be the personal obligation of the responsible official. Delinquent Waste Water fees and penalties have not been recorded with the County Recorder nor certified to the County Auditor, which would result in a lien against the property. This would result in the charges being added to the property tax in the following year and the delinquent fees being collected by the county and paid to LaFontaine. The income from these delinquent accounts is now being lost Bad debts and uncollectable accounts for water, wastewater and trash

Paul expresses concerns regarding Obama jobs plan Dear editor, President Barack Obama has now laid out his most recent jobs plan. To many, it may sound like his earlier stimulus, shovel-ready projects and corporate/bank salvage plans - borrow money and increase federal spending. Wait! There is a new twist to this plan. Tax the ‘rich’ more. According to Associated Press research, less then 10 percent of the U.S. population currently pay 70 percent of all income taxes. The socalled ‘rich’ top 3 percent pay more

then half of that total. Those ‘rich’ people also create 94 percent of all jobs. Meanwhile, almost 50 percent of citizens and many illegal folks pay no taxes. President Obama and Warren Buffett state it is “only fair” that the ‘rich’ pay more taxes. There is no mention, in his plan, as to how the $1.5 trillion in new taxes is to be spent. Do you suppose it will be applied to our unsustainable national debt? Or, is it likely Obama has more ‘share the wealth’ ideas in mind? Lots

of voters really enjoy the idea of getting something for nothing. That’s called Socialism. In the U.S., some people aren’t even looking for work. Apparently the monies and benefits received from state and federal sources afford them an acceptable lifestyle. Socialism has been rampant in foreign countries. For some time, it worked reasonably well. In History 101, we learned history repeats itself. We were also taught all things that look so

good have a downside to them. Those nations that have practiced socialism are now on their knees, begging for financial help. Their economic situations are dire. Their people are revolting. They have learned what is obvious socialism is fine, until you run out of ‘rich’ taxpayers! We can be next. We call the United States a ‘free’ nation. Freedom is not free! You have to work at it and for it. John Paul Warren

fees are not being pursued for collections and some accounts have been written off without authority. The audit report for 2007 and 2008 says that this amount was just over $79,000, so it is probably well over $80,000 at this time. Again, writing off these accounts without authority could and should be held as the personal obligation of the official authorizing, directing, or executing these write-offs. In addition to the items listed above, the audit report comments on the condition of the records, lost water, transaction recording and several other items. These audit reports are

State Board of Accounts. I have also worked with the Town of LaFontaine ClerkTreasurer due to my duties when I was Liberty Township Trustee. I personally find it inexcusable to have all the discrepancies listed in these three audit reports year after year. It appears that they are not taken seriously and no corrections are ever made. I believe that the upcoming election in November will give the residents of LaFontaine the opportunity to elect Danielle Stouffer, who has the ability to straighten this mess out.

This has lead to numerous errors in the records and some records are missing. I feel that this is unacceptable for someone who has held this position for the length of time the present Town ClerkTreasurer has.

Victory Christian Fellowship ! asks community to help those in need with a shoe drive

Wabash and Kosciusko county residents are invited to recycle their gently worn shoes in an effort to help distribute shoes to people in need. Non-profit organization Soles4Souls Inc. has committed to collect and distribute shoes to people living in extreme poverty and recovering from natural disasters. The shoe charity provides one pair of shoes to a person in need every seven seconds. Since 2005, Soles4Souls has distributed more than 13 million pairs of shoes because of the generosity and commitment of people and various organizations around the country. From September through the end of December, Victory Christian Fellowship (VCF) asks the community to become a force of change by donating your new or gently worn footwear and/or financial donations to make a tangible difference through the gift of shoes. Every donation will support the charityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s initiative to distribute shoes to those in need. This will be the third shoe drive that Victory Christian Fellowship has sponsored. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been able to send in over 1,500 pairs of shoes to Soles4Souls with our last two drives,â&#x20AC;? says Jeanna Morbitzer of VCF.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to collect at least 500 more pairs this year! The great thing about this project is that almost everyone has a few pairs of shoes in their closet that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not wearing anymore. This is the perfect opportunity to do some cleaning and help someone in need.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;With tragedies such as the earthquakes in countries like Haiti and Japan, on top of the enormous needs elsewhere, we can use the estimated 1.5 billion shoes taking up space in the closets of ordinary people to change the world one pair at a time,â&#x20AC;? said Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls, Wayne Elsey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need partners to get behind Soles4Souls. Donating shoes is one of the simplest yet profound acts you can do, because it will greatly improve someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life in the most difficult of times.â&#x20AC;? If you would like to take part in this project, please bring shoes to Victory Bookstore, 112 W. Main St., North Manchester, between 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday-Friday. Please rubber band your shoes together by pair, and if you wish, include a donation to help cover shipping costs.
