Living Essentials breaks ground on latest expansion Gov. Mitch Daniels in town as company creates at least 60 new jobs by Brent Swan After starting in 2007 as a relative unknown, Living Essentials, makers of the now popular 5-hour energy drink, again broke ground on an

expansion. The latest, a manufacturing and distribution center, is slated to encompass nearly 1 million square feet on 46 acres of land, which is set to be completed in two separate phases. “We can stand here and say that we’ve taken an operation that started out with 150,000 sq.

ft. of space to just under 800,000 sq. ft. with the expansions we have at our WEDCOR facilities and we’ve grown our employment base to over 370 people,” Karl Smith, General Manager of Living Essentials said during the ground breaking ceremony. “Our goal is to continue to expand our manufacturing

YMCA declines United Fund money for 2013

By Ashley Flynn The Wabash County YMCA has declined funding from the Wabash County United Fund for 2013. Uncollected pledges and unanticipated construction costs left the Y with a $2.35 mil-

Wrong billing address published for new sewage billing In last week’s edition of The Paper the incorrect billing address for City of Wabash sewage payments was published. All sewage payments should be sent to P.O. Box 245, Wabash, IN 46992. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

lion debt. The Y has received an anonymous challenge grant for up to $500,000 that would help eliminate this debt, but the fundraising needs to start immediately. According to a press release, the gift will match every dollar the Y receives toward debt elimination, but the funds must be received by April 30, 2013. The immediate funding interferes with the United Fund’s eightweek blackout period, which prohibits recipients of United Fund dollars from fundraising without prior approval from the United Fund Board of Directors. “Our volunteers have evaluated what is right at this moment in time for the Y and have decided that with compliance with

the regulation of being a United Fund agency that it was in our best interest at this time to decline the funding for 2013,” Clint Kugler of the YMCA said in a press conference. “We have a good rapport and we want to make sure that we are building community, and we have come to an agreement that this is what needs to happen,” Kugler said of the Y and UF. During the press conference, Kugler and Deborah VanMeter of the UF stressed the two organizations remain on good terms. “There was a great deal of discussion and concern on our board because we didn’t want the message to be interpreted wrong. There is no animosity or (continued on page 15)

INDIANA GOV. MITCH DANIELS (second from right) was on hand as Living Essentials broke ground Oct. 10 on its newest expansion, which will bring at least 60 jobs to Wabash, with the possibility of up to 200 additional jobs in total. (photo by Brent Swan) operations and explore new product lines. The expansion will include at least a minimum of 60 jobs. That will begin now while we hire new employees to prepare for the expansion and we will finish that up the latter part of next year.” Although the company is promising 60 jobs to the community, many officials suspect the number will grow as time progresses. “I think Karl is lowballing those hiring numbers because I can tell you we have set aside a whole lot more money for training than that,” Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels said. “We’re expecting again that you will raise your estimates.” Daniels was quick to point out that Living Essentials has continually exceeded any and all expectations and is quickly becoming one of the state’s fastest growing businesses. “No matter what the number is they give us today about their production, even if they say the are making nine million bottles, by this time next week, it will be at 9.5 million or 10 million. It’s growing that quickly,” Gov. Daniels said of the constant growth. “This company is growing so rapidly here, it is beginning to expand internationally. I asked Karl where he was going to make all those millions and he said, ‘right here in Wabash.’ As Living Essentials has grown, so too has its presence in the Wabash area business landscape. “This company could have stayed in Michigan but you decided to come here, you didn’t have to grow here in Wabash; you had a world of choices,” Gov. Daniels said. “I want to say to Karl Smith and all the people involved at Living Essentials, thank you for your business.” In his speech, Gov. Daniels noted the level of cooperation between the City of Wabash, Wabash County government, and how it helped to fuel this expansion.

“We don’t have a better partner at the state level than the City of Wabash,” Gov. Daniels said. “Mayor Bob, he and I have had the chance to do something like this several times and this is a great example of how quickly they’ll move to keep up with a company that’s growing this rapidly. I wish I could tell you every place in Indiana is as organized as that, but that’s not the case.” City of Wabash Mayor Bob Vanlandingham echoed that sentiment in his speech by stating, “We don’t want to forget that we are getting to where we are because we get along, we communicate and we work together. When I look around and see what’s going on not only in Wabash, but also North Manchester, all of these things are going on because of the cooperation of our local government agencies.” That cooperation has helped Living Essentials continue to raise its employment level to where it is today, 370. The company has expanded in Wabash twice in 2010, adding eight production lines and the company’s research and development operations, totaling a capital investment of over $55 million. Living Essentials produces more than 9 million bottles of the 5-Hour Energy Drink at its Wabash plant. The 57 mL dietary supplements are sold in retail and convenience stores across the United States, and in Canada, Spain, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Ireland. The newest expansion will bring the companies overall footprint in Wabash County to over 1.8 million sq. ft. “This is spectacular for the state of Indiana,” Gov. Daniels said. “This is probably the fastest growing business anywhere in the state. I predict with full confidence this will not be the last time they expand either.”

Community Foundation of Wabash County hosts 22 for Food Insecurity Summit

Twenty-two area pantries, free meal providers, and church leaders met on Oct. 1 to learn from each other and share best practices in an effort to reduce the number of hungry people in Wabash County. Organizations that provide relief to food insecure members of the community have few occasions to meet together. The daylong meeting, convened by the Community

Foundation, was an opportunity to gather important information and network. By gathering information about each agency’s services, hours of operation, targeted populations, and volume of food distributed into a “map,” participants determined there is little overlap between the eight pantries and various meal and backpack programs. Over a period of

more than 30 years, organizations have risen to meet food needs in the county and mobilized to cover gaps in services, such as aid to seniors, children, and the unemployed and working poor. Though most services are available once a month, families and seniors can rotate between agencies, accessing food almost weekly to supplement limited incomes and

SNAP benefits. Friends in Service Here (F.I.S.H.), located in the Women’s Clubhouse at the city park in Wabash, is open Tuesday through Friday for food distribution. Helping Hands of Wabash County on Canal Street in Wabash, opens its pantry on Mondays to complete the week. Most pantries, like Fellowship Pantry in North Manchester,

pantries in the county, removing a serious barrier to those without cars or fuel. Tim Kean, CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank in Muncie, encouraged local pantries and food providers to stretch their budgets by using contributed dollars to purchase food at the bank for eighteen cents a pound. He also commended the community for its participation in food drives, something that taps the spirit of generosity and genuine concern for fellow citizens. In the meeting agencies ticked off a list of concerns, such as donor fatigue, dependency on handouts, coordination of services, healthy living, and the relationship of food insecurity to economic development and unemployment in the county. The Community Foundation will convene a second meeting on food insecurity for agencies and churches to continue the discussion. Participants in the daylong meeting were Jenny Wilson (Blessings in a Backpack, Wabash); Rowena Greer (Fellowship Food Pantry, North Manchester); Sue Potter and Janet Shoue (F.I.S.H.); Lorraine Selleck (Helping Hands of Wabash County); Claire Coyne (Light House Missions); Beverly Ferry, Drew Warmath, and Maggie Wimberly (Living Well in Wabash

Representatives from area churches were J. P. Freeman and Sebrena Cline (Congregational Christian Church, North Manchester), Jim Chinworth and David Rogers (Manchester Church of the Brethren), and Jim Almeda (St. Bernard’s Catholic Church). The Community Foundation of Wabash County is a nonprofit public charity established in 1954. It serves the citizens of Wabash County by implementing their charitable aspirations, making grants, investing and safeguarding charitable assets, providing information regarding charitable endeavors, and convening citizens and linking resources to address issues confronting our shared lives.

3 Dukes Memorial Hospital unveils renovated Suite Beginnings Obstetrics Unit

October 17, 2012

To celebrate the opening of Suite Beginnings, Dukes Memorial Hospital would like to invite the public to our Suite B e g i n n i n g s Obstetrics Unit Open House and trick-ortreating event being held on Thursday, Oct. 25 from 5 – 7 p.m. Be one of the first to receive a peek inside our finished unit, take a staff-lead tour and enjoy some refreshments. Children who attend dressed in their Halloween costume will receive a complimentary goodie bag. During the past six months, the Suite B e g i n n i n g s

Obstetrics Unit at Dukes Memorial Hospital (DMH) has undergone many changes. With the completion of this renovation several exciting improvements and upgrades are in place and ready for use. Some of the upgrades in the publicly traveled areas of the unit include: all new flooring, wall coverings, and an entirely rebuilt centralized nurse’s station with new countertops, cabinetry and furniture. Each private room was thoughtfully redesigned while keeping our patients and their needs and

desires in the forefront of our minds. We have included in the rooms upgraded flat-panel televisions, new furniture, sinks and bathroom fixtures; as well as freshly painted walls; new flooring; and ceiling tiles. A tranquil color pallet was selected to promote relaxation while feminine fabrics and upholstery were chosen for all furniture and privacy curtains. Just a quick glimpse into the unit reveals a total transformation from what it consisted of before to what it displays now. As an added personalized touch, local professional photog-

rapher Bridgette Harmon-Smith, of Harmon Photography, has also graciously furnished the unit with several portraits that she has taken of individuals and families from Peru and the surrounding communities. Dukes Memorial Hospital feels that the use of her artwork illustrates yet another dimension of our dedication and commitment to the residents of the communities in which we serve. “We are very excited to announce these upgrades and unveil them to our obstetrics and gynecological patients,” stated

once again the Class 1A Coach of the Year as his Lafayette Central Catholic Knights posted a 31 – 4 mark and won the 2012 state championship. This marks his 6th state championship.

Debra Close, CEO. “The new unit offers a serene environment that will allow our new mothers and babies to feel as if they’re in a relaxed retreat, one that we expect will foster a positive birthing experience from start to finish.” It is the desire of Dukes Memorial to stay competitive with all other area hospitals in the realm of maternity

care. Whether you are a first time mother or you have had several children your expectations do not change.

Hospital is a health care organization with the primary mission of offering high quality, acute heart care and preventative medical care in a caring and compassionate manner to all people who live in, work in, or visit Miami County and its surrounding areas.

Save up to 49% on 2013 EdenPURE®s Now readers can save up to 49% ($229 the largest savings ever on new EdenPURE ® s). EdenPURE® is not just the best-selling portable heating system in North America.

Never be cold again

How it works:


Heats floor to the same temperature as ceiling.

3. The soft heat “rides” the humidity in the room and provides even, moist, soft heat ceiling to floor and wall to wall without reducing oxygen and humidity.

1. Electricity ignites powerful SYLVANIA infrared lamp. 2. The quartz infrared lamp gently warms the patented copper heating chambers.

SYLVANIA is a registered trademark of OSRAM SYLVANIA Inc. used under license.

Richard Karn is a paid spokesperson for EdenPURE®.



As Al Borland on Home Improvement I was the man with all the answers. However, as Richard Karn I still look for money saving and efficient heating in my home. I have an EdenPURE® Infrared Portable Heater in my California home and like millions of others found it to be a super-safe, reliable source of portable heat all year long. and save even bigger. New, More Efficient Models The engineers at EdenPURE® listened to their millions of customers and somehow managed to improve the #1 portable heater in North America. Through old fashioned American ingenuity the new EdenPURE® line is more efficient to save you even more money. The EdenPURE ® Personal Heater now heats a larger area, an increase from 350 square feet to 500 square feet. That’s a 30% increase in efficiency! And EdenPURE® is proud to introduce the 2013 Model 750. The new Model 750 is perfect for larger areas and heats up to 750 square feet. But the best thing about the Model 750 is the price. We priced the Model 750 at only $50 above the Personal Heater. This means you receive a 33% increase in performance for only $50. That’s American engineering at its best! The EdenPURE® can cut your heating bills and pay for itself in a matter of weeks, and then start

putting a great deal of extra money in your pocket after that. Super Safe Infrared Heat Now remember, a major cause of residential fires in the United States is carelessness and faulty portable heaters. The choice of fire and safety professional, Captain Mike Hornby, the EdenPURE® has no exposed heating elements that can cause a fire. And a redundant home protection system that simply shuts the EdenPURE® down if it senses danger. That’s why grandparents and parents love the EdenPURE®. The outside of the EdenPURE® only gets warm to the touch so that it will not burn children or pets. And your pet may be just like my dog who has reserved a favorite spot near the EdenPURE ®. You see the EdenPURE® uses infrared heat. And just as pets enjoy basking in a beam of sunlight they try to stay close to EdenPURE ® ’s “bone-warming” infrared heat. The Health Secret is in the Copper

EdenFLOW™ technology uses copper heating chambers to take the energy provided by our special SYLVANIA infrared bulbs and distribute our famous soft heat evenly throughout the room. Now our copper isn’t ordinary. It’s 99.9% pure antimicrobial copper from an over 150 year old American owned company in Pennsylvania.

Austin men hurt Mendenhall challenges Donnelly opinion in Fulton County crash Oct. 10 at approximately 8:35 a.m., officers from the Indiana State Police and the Fulton County Sheriff ’s Department responded to a single vehicle crash on State Road 25, near Fulton County Road 850 South, which injured two Austin, Ind., men. The preliminary investigation by Master Trooper Ron Whitney revealed that Stephen Rogers, 43, Austin, Ind., was driving a 2001 International semitractor, pulling a tanker trailer, southbound on State Road 25 near County Road 850 South. The semitractor traveled partially off the west side of State Road 25 and rolled onto the passenger’s side.

Investigators are trying to determine if a northbound passenger car crossed the centerline, causing Rogers to take evasive action by traveling partially off the two-lane road. Rogers was transported by ambulance to Rochester’s Woodlawn Hospital with a complaint of shoulder and neck pain. A passenger in the semi-tractor, John Hurt, 28, Austin, Ind., was airlifted from the crash scene by Samaritan Helicopter. He was flown to Fort Wayne’s Parkview Hospital with fractures in his neck and back. Both occupants were wearing seat belts, which Master Trooper Whitney believed helped reduce the severity

of the injuries suffered in the crash. Neither the use of alcohol nor narcotics is suspected as having contributed to the crash. Rogers was hauling milk for Nimeyer Milk Transport based in Cedar Lake, IN. Some milk did spill onto the road. Anyone who might have information about this crash should contact Master Trooper Ron Whitney by calling 1765-473-6666. Whitney was assisted at the crash scene by Master Trooper Joe Swisher, Fulton County Sheriff ’s Deputy Larry Jolley, Fulton County Sheriff ’s Deputy Jim Hubbard, and the Liberty Township Fire Department.

Dear Editor, Since I believe more or us should speak out, I wish to express my appreciation to the writer of a recent article in The Paper expressing his opinion of Joe Donnelly. However, having read his article in favor of him, I have to ask how well he truly knows Representative Donnelly. Most of the article was critical of Richard Mourdock with few facts to show why voters should choose Donnelly in Nov. Joe Donnelly has been in the House of Representatives for three terms. He travels Indiana pretending to be a moderate, but during his time in congress, he has been in lockstep with almost every move President Obama has made. In fact, it has been said they are “two peas in a pod” by observers. Rep Donnelly’s voting record as published in the Indiana

City Council meeting Oct. 9

By Ashley Flynn The city council accomplished everything on their agenda without opposition during the meeting held Oct. 9. The council finished up old business with the second reading of General Ordinance No. 10, 2012, which requested additional funding for the “Rainy Day Fund.” All members of the board said, “Aye.” They proceeded in addressing four orders of new business. The council quickly mentioned the adoption of the Wabash County School budget of 2013. A motion was made and the adop-

tion was approved. M a y o r Va n l a n d i n g h a m swore in Denis Vigar as a new paramedic for the Wabash County Fire Department. The council moved on to the first reading of General Ordinance No. 11, 2012 to repeal a section of the Wabash City Code and enact a new Fair Housing Ordinance. The previous ordinance had been in place since 1996 and stated that there can be no discrimination because of race, religion, ethnicity or handicap. This new ordinance adds that one cannot discriminate against gender or living partners. City Attorney

Doug Leman explained that it has to do with gender preference and reconstitutes what defines a family. He also explained that an individual selling his or her own house may discriminate against anyone, but businesses may not. Such businesses include realtors, brokers or anyone who has sold or owned three or more properties within 24 months. To be eligible for city and state grants, the ordinance had to be passed. The council also approved an ordinance to establish standards for the placement of fire hydrants. A fireman explained that is was

necessary for them to see hydrants from at least 50 feet away. The standards would prohibit obstructions or require them to be removed to allow for better visibility. Previous structures would be considered on a case-by-case basis. While wrapping up discussions, Mayor Vanlandingham mentioned that trick-ortreating will be from 5 – 8 p.m. on Halloween night, which is a Wednesday.

Voters Guide by Freedom Works of America shows: he is for big government takeovers; he voted for the 2009 Stimulus, TARP, higher taxes and spending, earmarks, bail outs, health care and all its mandates. He has been a leader in keeping us dependent on foreign oil stifling our own energy production. His roll call votes on over 70 bills dated from 2007-2012 have shown he is in favor of the demands on issues and mandates coming from Washington D.C., not from Indiana constituents. We Hoosiers voted Senator Richard Lugar out in May. Why would we want to duplicate his actions in Donnelly’s moving to the Senate? Do we want Donnelly along with others dictating how much money we can make or even worse where and when we can spend it? Or if and what doctors we can see? Or what temp we can have in our house?

I have attended three events in which Richard Mourdock has made his positions on these issues clear. He wants smaller, less intrusive government. He vows to repeal and replace “Obamacare” early on. Further, he supports balance budget, tax reform, no tax hikes, and is against EPA’s job killing regulations. Voters may not agree with all these, but at least I believe Mourdock is being honest. On the other hand, I see

Representative Donnelly flying under false colors. If this is true as he crisscrosses Indiana, what will he carry into the Senate? Why should we trust as the aforementioned writer states that Donnelly will be for us in congress when he has not been up to now? Please vote on Nov. 6. At the same time, please know the facts about the candidates before you do. Martha Mendenhall North Manchester

6 Spiritual Growth Conference brings experts on parenting and marriage

Live Life to the Fullest: A Spiritual Growth Conference will bring in six experts in the area of parenting and marriage to this year’s conference. This psycho-educational con-

ference is sponsored by the Wabash Friends Counseling Center and will be held on Saturday, Nov. 3, 8:15 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. at the Honeywell Center. In addition to

October 17, 2012

keynote speaker, George Barna, one of the country’s bestknown Christian authors and speakers, Dr. Tim Gardner, Dr. Gregory Sowles, Lisa Wanner, Laura Eib, Cheryl Gigler, and

Dan Reed will join him as experts in parenting and marriage. Dr. Tim Gardner is the CEO of Marriage Ministries in Indianapolis and has been a therapist for nearly 20 years. He

has worked with hundreds of marriages and is often a marriage retreat speaker. He will be giving a workshop entitled “Five Keys to an Incredible Marriage.”

Dr. Gregory Sowles is the director of Cornerstone Vision Counseling and Psychological Services. As a neuropsychologist, he will give the workshop entitled, “Oppositional and Defiant Youth: AKA, The Prodigals.” Laura Eib is a licensed Mental Health Counselor and Child and Family Therapist at Howard Regional Health System in Kokomo. From her specialty of working almost exclusively with children, she will give a workshop entitled, “Helping Children Attach After Early Trauma and Neglect.” This session will review how attachment bonds are formed, how brain functioning affects relationships and social development, and the effect early trauma and neglect has upon children. Attendees will better understand the often extreme and confusing behavior of children with an attachment disorder. Parenting capacities, approaches, and tools specific to the needs of children who struggle to attach will be identified. Dan Reed, Associate Faculty at Indiana UniversityPurdue University at Fort Wayne will present, “21st Century Parenting: Moving From A BehaviorBased Approach To A N e e d s - B a s e d Approach.” Parents depend on ineffective methods used hundreds of years ago. With some training, parents can become experts themselves in dealing with the inevitable problems that come up in all parent-child relationships. In this workshop attendees will be introduced to three basic fundamentals of parenting, a child’s four basic needs, the number one rule of parenting, why a system of rewards and punishments doesn’t work, a child’s two profound fears, and why so many children are angry and what to do about it. Lisa Wanner, a Mental Health Counselor and Consultant at Wieland and A s s o c i a t e s Counseling and Consulting in Fort

Wayne will present, “Rescue Your Love Life.” Most marriages need rescued at one time or another. In this workshop you will find practical, irresistible ways to resolve some of those “dumb” things we do to scuttle our most cherished relationship. You will discover how to avoid bringing out the worst in each other, get exactly what you need out of marriage, rebuild trust after great betrayal, reconnect when all seems hopeless. This workshop will blow apart the typical myths about marriage (e.g. my spouse should make me happy; my spouse should read my mind; my spouse should never hurt me) so you can find the joy, passion and connection you had always envisioned. Finally, “Success with Attention Deficit Disorder: Building Life Long Strategies,” will be presented by Cheryl Gigler, a Certified Educator and ADHD Coach and Certified Christian Coach. Live Life to the Fullest has become the largest one-day self-help conference in the Midwest and 700 to 900 people attended the last four years from Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio and Missouri. About 400 of the attendees are from outside Wabash County. Throughout the day at the Honeywell Center, specially discounted books will be available for conferees, as well as over 20 educational resource booths from a number of local and regional organizations and businesses. The presentations at this conference have been approved by the National Board of Certified Counselors for 5.0 continuing education hours. Registration begins at 8 a.m. For more information or to register, visit the Counseling Center’s Website at, call 260563-8453 or 877-3501658 or email Live Life to the Fullest is also on Facebook and Twitter.

Local reuse artists donates a fiddle for the Chili Cook-off

Nationally recognized and local reuse artist, Michael “Hap” Hapner loves his “little river” city and seeks unique ways to support community causes. Hapner wanted to do something special in support of the 10th Anniversary of the Wabash Cannonball Chili for Charity Chili Cook-off scheduled to take place on Oct. 20, at Paradise Spring Historical Park with admission gates opening at noon. “I knew that The Charlie Daniels Band was performing at the Honeywell Center a few weeks prior to the cook-off,” said Hapner. “And I

thought, ‘hey I’m going to paint a fiddle and see if I can get it autographed by Charlie Daniels while he is in town, with the intent of donating it back to the cook-off as a raffle prize.” Wade Weaver, local radio station owner and ten year member of the Chili for Charity Board of Directors, provided Hapner with tickets and meet and greet passes to the Charlie Daniels performance which took place on Oct. 5 in downtown Wabash. “The Chili Committee is grateful for Hap’s generosity,” stated Weaver. “We are really excited to

have such a unique raffle prize.” Daniels, a famed Country and Southern Rock artist, is well known for his uncanny ability to play the fiddle and change bows several times throughout any given song and never miss a beat. “Painting a fiddle was the obvious instrument of choice to represent Charlie’s incredible music abilities,” said Hapner. The autographed fiddle is currently on display at Market Street Grill and is just one of the numerous raffle prizes available during this year’s chili cook-off. Raffle tickets may be pur-

A yearling ram raised by Glen and Chris Jones, Rochester, was selected Champion Ram at the National Polypay Show and Sale held in Sedalia Missouri. The Polypay breed of sheep is known for raising lots of lambs and for excellent mothering ability. The breed was developed by the US Sheep Experiment Station in DuBoise, Idaho and has quickly become the dominant mother breed in commercial sheep flocks throughout the upper Midwest. The Joneses got started by purchasing ewes in 1987. Their flock is enrolled in the National Sheep Improvement Program and they have produced many animals with outstanding estimated breeding values. The

chased at Market Street Grill, M & B Body Shop, the Elks Lodge, the Wabash County Tourism office and The Old Kettle Saloon. “This extraordinary raffle prize is just another great way to recognize the 10th Anniversary of the Chili Cook-off,” said Bob McCallen III, Wabash Cannonball Chili for Charity

Board President, regarding the handpainted fiddle. “Honoring event cofounders Bill Gerding and Steve Bowman this year is important to the committee. Due to their love for the county, $250,000 dollars from the proceeds of the annual event has been donated back to local charities serving the community.”

Blessing of the Animals Nov. 11

The Congregational Christian Church invites the public to join them as they hold the annual Blessing of the Animals Service on Sunday, Nov. 4 at 1 p.m. The church is located at 310 N. Walnut Street, North Manchester. The outdoor service will be held in the church parking lot located to the west of the building. The service is a remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi, whose feast day is Oct. 4. St. Francis is the Patron Saint of the Animals and had a deep fondness for and respect of all of God’s creatures. Animals are an extension of the family and very much beloved by their owners. By honoring the significance of these special family members, we hope to provide joy and comfort to their owners - and the pets ben-

efit as well. The brief service will be held out of doors and participants are encouraged to bring their pets either on a leash or in a carrier for their pro-

tection. Pastor J. P. Freeman will offer brief comments after which each animal and owner will receive a blessing. “We very much understand and

respect the bond between pets and their owners and seek God’s blessing on both for His glory,” said Freeman, “The service is open to all who would attend.”

Remember I need the information before Thursday evenings because The Paper comes out on Tuesdays. This is the email address you must use: L A F O N TA I N E FIRE DEPARTMENT/LAFONTAIN E TOWN HALLOWEEN PARTY will be on Wednesday, Oct. 31 at the fire station. There will be hot dogs, cider, chili, ham and beans, cornbread and kettle corn. The food will be served at 5 p.m. until it’s gone. There will be costume judging at 6 p.m. and pumpkin decorating judging

at 5 p.m. The Halloween Party is sponsor by the Fire D e p a r t m e n t , LaFontaine Business Association and LaFontaine Lions. Trunk or treat will be held at the McDonalds Funeral Home parking lot. United Methodist Church is putting on the trunk or treat. Come and enjoy this time. TOWN OF LAFONTAINE Board Meeting was on Monday, Oct. 8 at 7 p.m. The building for sale on 22 West Branson was not advertised that we were taking bids. Attorney Al Plummer is going to contact the Wabash Plain Dealer and get the information published for the advertisement of bids. The continued problem with people parking on wrong side of street will be addressed with further action. Street paving looking at repairing, Kendall Street SR15 to Rennaker, costs $11,485, Council approves to fix at this time. Hale StreetParker North, costs $3,475, Council approves to fix at this time. Kendall Streetbeside Snyder’s, costs $17,500, and is not going to be fixed at this time. The property owner is concerned that the ditch pip on Main Street and State Road 218 creates too much water to mow. The Town of LaFontaine owns neither the pipe nor the property. It is personal property. The town website is up and running. There is information on the website about the town and bills can be paid online. Utility bills can also be paid by credit card in the office. Residents need to be aware that there have been some cars egged and cars painted with window paint. If you have any vandalism to your car or personal property you are to notify the Town Marshal. Lead and copper testing on water are complete and reports have been submitted with the State of Indiana. Rolling Meadows wants the town to pay for sewer tap at the end of their new sewer

line. Council requested a cost estimate on tap fees. Rolling Meadows wants to close a drainpipe that runs under Wabash Avenue. Council is not in agreement with the closing of the drainpipe. LaFontaine Arms Apartment has water meters located inside each apartment in the closet. When the water needs turned off in these apartments, the town is unable to get in the apartment without consent. After talking to the owner of the apartments about this issue, he suggested putting in a Master meter. This would allow him to put the utility bill on the individuals rent. A Master Meter would cost about $7,500 total. A garage door would be beneficial in front of the new Utility Building. A quote given by Builder’s Mart is $1,400. By selling scrap metal from within the building, the town already has $1,100. Motion was made and approved to buy a garage door. The property at 5 East Parker Street is not owned by the UAW. The weed order is rescinded, due to mistake regarding ownership. The property is owned by town residents but is currently scheduled for sheriff sale. The tree that fell in the park has been cleaned up. Meeting adjourned at 8:45 p.m. Next general meeting will be at 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 12 in the LaFontaine Town Hall. You may get a complete meeting report at the town hall.

All Saints’ Day Recognized November 4

The Congregational Christian Church invites the public to join them as they hold a service of remembrance during regular service times in recognition of All Saints’ Day. Services will be held on Sunday morning, Nov. 4, at 8:30 and 11. The tradition of All Saints’ Day began in the fourth century when the Greek Christians kept a festival on the first

Sunday after Pentecost (in late May or early June) in honor of all martyrs and saints. Other sources say that a commemoration of “All Martyrs” began to be celebrated as early as 270 CE but no specific month or date is recorded. Today, All Saints’ Day is recognized in a variety of faith traditions all around the world. Those who wish will be asked to come

forward during the worship service, light a candle and speak the name or names of loved ones who have joined the saints in heaven. Pastor J. P. Freeman will lead the service and encourages all to participate in this very special day of healing. “Though we have lost their physical presence, we are yet ‘surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses’. Our memo-

ries become a source of healing as we speak the names of those we love,” said Freeman. The services are open to all who would attend. The Congregational Christian Church is located at 310 N. Walnut Street, North Manchester. Contact the church at 260-9822882 or on the web at www.brightlightccc.o rg for more information about the church.

Terflinger from Legion Post #286 encourages veterans to apply for Honor Flight Dear editor, The North M a n c h e s t e r American Legion Post #286 had a good fundraising year! We are proud to announce that we were able to contribute to the North East Indiana Honor Flight, enough money to pay for three veterans on the Oct. 17 flight to Washington, D.C. The Honor Flights are free of charge for World War II Veterans. Each veteran is accompanied by a guardian for their day in the sun. Guardians pay their own way for the

flight, and it is a very rewarding experience. Most veterans select their own guardian; one will be provided if needed. Your spouse cannot be a guardian unless he or she is also a veteran of World War II. I would like to take this opportunity to encourage Korean Veterans to start filling out applications. Once we start taking Korean Veterans the application date is the first criteria for selection. Apply now if you would like to go to Washington and visit

the War Memorials. Please Note: any terminally ill veteran is encouraged to apply! They will go on the next flight regardless of which campaign they served in. Wheel chairs or oxygen, are not problems; accommodations are made for these conditions. Applications are available at the Legion Post in North Manchester, 215 E. Main St., 260-982-8114. I would like to remind everyone that Honor Flight North East Indiana is a not for profit organization that raises money to provide

these free trips for our veterans. You can donate directly to North East Indiana Honor Flight P.O. Box 5 Huntertown, Ind. You may also drop off or send donations to The Post at 215 E Main St., North Manchester, Ind. Please write ”HONOR FLIGHT” on the envelope and they will be included with our ongoing fundraising efforts! The government does not fund these trips. I would like to close with a reminder. If you can read this, say thank you to a

Celebrate Recovery held at Congregational Christian Church

IWU offers scholarships for nurses in underserved areas

Celebrate Recovery (CR) for adults and Celebration Station (CS) for k-6th grade meet every Thursday night from 7-8:30 p.m. at the North M a n c h e s t e r Congregational Christian Church, 310 N. Walnut Street. CR is a free 12-Step program based on eight biblical principles and provides a

Indiana Wesleyan University will receive $400,000 over the next two years to help pay tuition and fees for 20 graduate nursing students who reside in areas with a shortage of health professionals. The funds come from the Advanced Education Nursing Traineeship (AENT) program of the US Health Resources and Services Administration. Students who receive AENT funding will be enrolled in the Primary Care Track Nurse Practitioner (PYC) in the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program and agree to work in rural or medically underserved communities or settings upon graduation. Grant County, location of IWU’s residential campus, and certain areas of Marion County, location of IWU’s Greenwood Education Center, are officially designated as Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) and provide the PYC program. Nearby Blackford and Howard counties are also HPSAs. “Advanced practice nurses are in short supply in areas all over the United States right now,” said Dr. Barbara Ihrke, School of Nursing Dean. “The AENT program enables IWU to be a servant in some of our most underserved home communities and provide assistance for a few students whose calling will take them where they’re needed most. Nurse practitioners achieve optimal patient/client health outcomes with clinical decision-making, client education and preventive healthcare practices.” IWU will receive $200,000 per year for the next two years through the AENT program. Information on PYC Admissions requirements and AENT funding is available at and 866-498-4968.

Upcoming topics include Hope on October 11 and Sanity on October 18.

tant components of spiritual growth.

Meetings are for adults and children 6th grade and under are held every Thursday evening beginning at 7 p.m. Meetings are held at the North Manchester Congregational Christian Church, 310 N.

NIPSCO expects winter heating bills to remain flat compared to last year Each year, NIPSCO looks at weather predictions, market forecasts, supply trends and storage opportunities to calculate a winter bill projection

‘the paper’ PETS OF THE WEEK

to help prepare customers for the season ahead. Assuming normal winter temperatures, this year’s projections indicate that bills will be among the lowest in a decade and only slightly below (0.56%) last winter’s bills. Over the course of the five-month winter

heating season – Nov. 1 to March 31 – NIPSCO’s average residential customer using a total of 624 therms could expect to pay approximately $438. This compares to $440 for a customer using the same amount of gas during last winter. For the 11th consec-

Note: Actual bills vary by customer depending on the home’s age and size, number in the household, number and age of gas appliances, thermostat settings and insulation levels. “Market prices for natural gas continue to hold at historically low levels thanks in large part to plentiful domestic resources,” said NIPSCO CEO Jim Stanley. “This is great for our customers, especially as we head into the winter heating season, when utility bills typically reach their highest point of the year.” While winter bill amounts are projected to be relatively flat compared to last winter, the company expects usage amounts to be slightly higher. Last winter’s usage amounts were lower than normal due to unseasonably warmer temperatures. The cost of natural gas represents the largest portion of customer bills – on average, two-thirds of an overall bill. NIPSCO has no mark-up and makes no profit on the cost of natural gas billed to its customers. Before billing, natural gas commodity costs must be reviewed by the IURC.

ill will towards each other. We value the partnership we have had with the United Fund. “Last year, we launched the water safety initiative through funds from the United Fund. They were a key partner in our summer learning program and other youth initiatives that we did. We are going to have to find resources to fill those voids in 2013, but the long-term health of the organization is going to be determined by eliminated debt. “In 2011, we spent $272,000 in principle mortgage and interest payments. Those are

resources that if we were debt free, we would be able to invest in the care of people and care of this facility responding to the needs of the community,” Kugler said. VanMeter agreed that the decision was the best for the community and the two organizations. “Both organizations have similar missions and both need to be strong in our community, and this agreement just works for the betterment of the community. “When both of our boards looked at what is happening with the Y and what is happen-

ing with the United Fund we see that as an opportunity to expand some of the allotments to other smaller non for profits,” said VanMeter. “In order to be able to impact the community in the most effective ways and meet the United Fund impact initiatives of education, income stability, community support and health, over $100,000 in requests were unable to be funded. The decisions of the YMCA to decline funding for the 2013 year will be an opportunity for the United Fund to expand funding to other non for profits,” a UF press

release said. The organizations see the opportunity as a win-win. “The YMCA is able to pursue the resources that it needs to meet the long-term health of the organization, but it also expands to smaller organization’s ability to impact the people that they serve. The alloca-

tion for us represents about one percent of our budget where are seven or ten years ago it represented 30 or 40 percent, so every dollar is important and every dollar is utilized to create the outcome that we are working towards,” said Kugler. The YMCA would have received approximately $20,000 from

the UF, and now those funds will be dispersed between 25 other non-profits in the community. “The Wabash County United Fund and the Wabash County YMCA are two agencies committed to responding to the needs within our community. This commitment will be accomplished long-

term by improving the strength of each organization,” said the press release. “We need to care for the facility. We need to care for people, and once we’ve eliminated those (debts) we will be able to invest those resources in both of those items,” said Kugler.

Manchester University dedicates its Fort Wayne pharmacy campus Oct. 18

With classes, labs and service opportunities in full swing at M a n c h e s t e r University’s College of Pharmacy, it’s time to dedicate the new north Fort Wayne campus. The $20 million, 82,000-square-foot structure at Dupont and Diebold roads just east of Interstate 69 is designed especially for pharmacy study. “Our new facility is far exceeding our expectations. It is contemporary, functional, comfortable, and gorgeous,” says Whitney Caudill, associate dean for administration and finance who also teaches pharmacy law and ethics courses. The public is invited to the dedication at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 18. Indiana Sen. David C. Long and other supporters of the MU College of Pharmacy will speak, followed by a reception and campus tours. “We have ample and significant laboratory space to conduct basic and applied biomedical science research

with the potential to serve as a major hub for pharmacy education in the entire region,” says MU toxicology specialist Sidhartha Ray, who has 28 years of academic experience and national awards in pharmacy research and teaching. The College of Pharmacy also is home to a Drug Information Center dedicated to enhancing and collaborating in patient-centered pharmaceutical care in northeast Indiana. A stunning $35 million grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. in December 2010 put Manchester on the path to the “built from scratch” north Fort Wayne campus. MU broke ground only a year before faculty and staff moved into their new offices this June. Students arrived in early August for their fouryear journey of study and experiential opportunities in hundreds of area pharmacy and health care sites. Seventy more new Pharm D. candidates will arrive each of the next three

years to fill the campus. “The building has already proven to be an exceptional working and learning environment,” says Caudill. “The building design gives our students classrooms designed specifically for integrated and collaborative learning, study and working together on projects in teams.” The architect was Design Collaborative, working with general contractor Michael Kinder & Sons Inc., both of Fort Wayne. M a n c h e s t e r University’s 11-acre Fort Wayne campus also is quickly becoming an easily accessible hub for workshops, seminars and gatherings for a wide variety of groups in northeast Indiana as well as a learning center for Manchester University. The 150-seat auditorium, with the latest technical ability for communication in today’s world, is “one of the best around,” says Alexis Young, MU director of con(continued on page 19)

Autism Support Group hosts special meeting Oct. 23 By Ashley Flynn The Autism Support Group of Wa b a s h / M i a m i County will hold a special meeting this month on Oct. 23, 6:30 – 8 p.m. in the Wabash Middle School Auditorium. The meeting will feature two guest

speakers. Jaimie Knee, a behavioral therapist with BACA will lead a Q&A session providing behavioral change techniques. Travis Breeding, an author and national speaker, is a motivational adult on the spectrum. Both speakers

are Indiana natives. This event is sponsored by the Autism Society of Indiana, and all of Wabash County is welcome to attend. The Autism Support Group meets once a month at the Urbana Lion’s Club. At the meet-

ings they share stories and information and offer support to one another. The meetings are for anyone who is affected by autism including parents, relatives and teachers. Nicole Hicks, an Autism Society of Indiana ally for

seven Indiana counties, and another local ally formed the group. Hicks said she wanted to connect with other parents struggling with children with autism. Allies provide resources for parents and offer support. They also work with

schools, and they are all parents of children with autism. The support group is offering this special meeting this month to reach out to other people affected by autism. They recognize the need for support in Wabash County and

want to get the word about the group to those in need. Anyone who might be interested is encouraged to attend. For questions or more information contact Nicole Hicks at 1-800-609- 8449 or Nicole@inautism.or g.

Daughters of the American Revolution hold September meeting

The monthly meeting of the Frances Slocum Chapter of the Daughters of the A m e r i c a n Revolution (DAR) was held on Tuesday, September 11th in the Blocher Room at the North Manchester Public Library. Joyce Joy read the President General’s Message from Merry Ann T. Wright. The July/August 2012 issue of the DAR American Spirit Magazine focused on celebrating the 225th anniversary of the Constitution and getting young people engaged in history and civics. President General Wright said that survey after survey shows that many of our country’s students lack basic knowledge about how their government works, not to mention awareness of fundamental constitutional tenets designed to protect their individual rights and liberties. As Sandra Day O’Connor said in an April 13, 2012, article in the Washington Post: “The only reason we have public school education in America is because in the early days of

the country, our leaders thought we had to teach our young generation about citizenship…that obligation never ends. If we don’t take every generation of young people and make sure they understand that they are an essential part of government, we won’t survive.” The challenge is great, but the NSDAR and many other organizations and individuals are working diligently to teach young people about their democratic heritage, the underlying values and principles of the Constitution, and their responsibilities as citizens. Regent Jean Wright informed members that Constitution Week will be celebrated beginning September 16th and will run through September 23rd. This month the President General, Executive Officers and a small group of officers from the 13 original Colonies will journey to Philadelphia, where it all happened, to commemorate the anniversary. The group will visit Independence Hall,

historic Christ Church, the graves of five signers of the Constitution and the new National Constitution Center (NCC), among other sites. The NCC will host as many as 4,000 students on September 17, and DAR is Preparing Constitution Week Kits for their classes. Regent Wright thanked the North Manchester Public Library for allowing the DAR to display items relating to Constitution Week in the corridor of the library. Chapter members were saddened to hear of the death of Leah Dale. Mrs. Dale passed away on August 26th. She had been a member of DAR since 1991 and will be missed by each member. Regent Wright gave the program with the subject being The Constitution. The original constitution was written in 1787 on 4 sheets of parchment paper. It was kept in various cities until 1952, when it was placed in the National Archives Building in Washington, DC. In 2003, a major renovation of the National

Archives was completed. The entire Constitution is now on display. The Constitution was signed by 39 men. The oldest was Ben Franklin who was 81 years old and hailed from Pennsylvania. The youngest was Jonathan Dayton of New Jersey who was only 26 years old. The Clerk was paid $30.00 for the job. The United States Constitution has about 4,500 words. It is the oldest and the shortest written Constitution of any government in the world today. The DAR will cele-

brate its 100th anniversary by hosting an open house from 1-3:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 15th at the Woman’s Club House, 700 W. Hill St, Wabash. Any woman over 18 years of age who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the A m e r i c a n Revolution, is eligible for membership in the DAR. Volunteers will provide guidance and assistance with the first steps into the world of genealogy. The next regular meeting was held on Tuesday, Oct. 9th, 6:30 p.m. at the

ference services. “People are impressed when they see it.” Conference rooms with adjustable walls, seminar rooms, break-out rooms – all are in grouped for easy access, separate from the pharmacy offices and laboratories. A large dining area and staging areas for area caterers complete the package. A number of organizations, from health

systems to labor unions and financial services, are booking the facilities, Young says. Just off the spacious, three-story lobby is an art gallery.

21 Agronomist: Consider history, not drought, when contemplating fall tillage

October 17, 2012

Farmers should consider the shortand long-term effects of fall tillage on their fields and not just the effects of the drought on this year’s crop, a Purdue Extension agronomist says. Tillage loosens and rearranges soil aggregates with the intent of establishing a better foundation for crop seed placement and root growth, but the drought itself has already accomplished deep cracking and loosening of some soils. The drought also reduced the post-harvest crop residue that is often used as an additional justification for tillage. “Tillage decisions should never be based on one year’s crop yield,” Tony Vyn said. A farmer’s natural reaction to a drought year is disappointment, and that may lead to what Vyn called “revenge tillage.” “I don’t want farmers to overestimate the need for fall tillage just because of the

2012 drought and poor crops,” he said. “It’s important to adopt a tillage system that leaves topsoil uniformly in place to build up a whole field’s resiliency in root-zone water retention over time.” He urged farmers to exercise caution and always be aware of the soil loss risk, saying they should examine soil conditions and crop yields over a number of years when considering tillage. “The early harvest may promote fall tillage, and the disappointment factor may further motivate farmers to till ground,” Vyn said. “But often we don’t know how an individual year’s yields would have changed with more or less tillage. “It’s been consistent that there are very few yield-related reasons for doing fall tillage on well-drained soils in a corn-soybean rotation. There’s more justification when a field is on a corn-corn rota-

tion or it has poorly drained soils. “ In addition to considering tillage in fields on a corn-corn rotation, Vyn recommended that farmers consider limited fall tillage for fields with a history of compaction, high clay content, lack of systematic drainage or fields with very slow-drying soils. He also advised farmers to consider the risks of fall tillage on their fields, especially in sloped areas. They should consider the amount of topsoil that could be lost, and the future yield loss in those eroded areas, if they bury residue that could be left to provide

protection from runoff. “Tillage has a permanent effect that can forever change soil water-holding capability on slopes,” Vyn said. Normally, the protective residue cover and greatly reduced soil disturbance associated with no-till mean less evaporation loss and higher soil water availability to roots. But this year, no-till fields did not provide as much protection against the drought as expected. The early-season onset of high temperatures and lack of rain limited both root growth and shoot growth in 2012. Corn

pends on energy reserves coming from shoot growth. “The near-surface soil was so dry, lack of tillage meant more resistance to root pene-

By Eric Christiansen In the third and final week of the Wabash County round robin portion of the TRC schedule, the Manchester Squires did the things they needed to do to go 3-0 against the other county schools, Southwood, Wabash and Northfield. Friday night, the Squires used a running attack and a bend but not break defense to pull out a 24-14 win over Northfield. The win gives the Squires a three game winning streak heading into sectional play this weekend and a 4-5 regular season record, going 4-3 in conference play. Northfield dropped to 3-6 overall and 2-5 in the TRC.

Going in to the game, the Squires were aware of Northfield’s Andy Roser and the potential problem he could be. “We knew Roser was going to be a load, and we’d have to stop him,” Manchester coach Brandon Baker said. “We didn’t stop him, but we contained him pretty well.” Roser carried the ball 16 times for 152 yards and one touchdown on the night. It was Roser who gave the Norse the early 7-0 lead when he broke loose for a 60yard run just 1:06 into the game. The Squires bounced back a few minutes later, driving the ball from their own 32 to the Norse seven-yard line, but had to settle

for a field goal from Thad Miller from 24 yards out with 6:27 left in the first quarter. “Thad’s field goal was important in the fact that we needed to put points on the board,” Baker said. Early in the second quarter, the Norse had a fourth and six deep in Manchester territory and went for it in the air. But Austin Curless’s pass from picked off by Cody Harlan in the end zone, who returned it to the 42 yard line. Three plays later, Jacob Casper gave the Squires a 9-7 lead with a 21-yard touchdown run with 9:35 left in the half. But Northfield answered right back. A nine-play drive

Augustus, Halderman earn regional titles

Northfield yet again asserted its prominence in the world of cross country. A pair of Norse came home Saturday evening with a regional medal around their necks, leading both the Northfield boys and cross country teams to a semistate berth. Norse senior Caleb Augustus won the Marion regional individual title in 16 minutes and one second. He helped his team to a third-place finish with 82 team points. Huntington North won with 73 points and South Adams took second with 76. Meanwhile, Jenna Halderman won a person-best time of 18:43 to lead all Culver Academy Regional runners. The Norse placed fourth as a team.

ended on a 12 yard touchdown run from Curless with 6:56 left in the half gave the Norse a 14-9 lead going into the locker room. The score remained 14-0 going into the fourth quarter, but in the final 12 minutes, Manchester took over. Early in the fourth, the Squires faced a 4th and 17 from the 35 yard line and decided to go for it. MHS quarterback Jim Sainsbury connected for Dan Griese for the conversion at the nine yard line. Two plays later, Sainsbury went back to Griese, hitting him for the go-ahead score on a nine-yard touchdown with 9:34 left in the game. The two-point conversion on a run from Gunner Ream gave the Squires a 17-14 lead. “We needed a receiver to step up and make a play, and Dan made two,” Baker said. “He did what he was coached to do. He got the ball at the highest point, and Jim did a good job of putting it where only he could catch it. We needed the passing game to get going.” Northfield looked to regain the lead with 4:30 left and the ball on its own 39, but Harlan picked off Curless again and took it to the 20 yard line, stopping the drive, and setting up the Squires for their final score. With 1:55 left, Sainsbury plunged in from the one-yard line to give the Squires a 24Karla Singer was next for the Norse girls with a 22nd-place finish in 20:25. Brittany Sloan took 29th in 21:09, Caitlin Eltzroth took 47th in 21:31, Paige Cole came in 50th in 21:50, and Sydney Eltzroth ran the course in 22:31 and came in 59th. Devin Tracy was the next Norse to

(photo by Gary Andrews) 14 lead, and eventually the win. “It was a very physical game, and we knew they wanted to run the ball,” Baker said. “We were able to get a couple of big plays in our passing game, which was much needed. “Our offensive line did a good job of picking up the adjustments we made at halftime,” he continued. “We were trying to survive and keep it close until half, so we could draw some things up. We got some different schemes in blocking done, and our guys did a good job of executing.” Baker was also pleased with his team’s defensive performance. “Our defense seemed to bend a lot, but didn’t break,” he said. “We knew Roser was the key to their offense, so we did a pretty good job on him by eliminating

big plays. He had the one big touchdown run early in the game, but that was it. We did a good job in the second half.” The win also gave the Squires the unofficial county championship, which was something that motivated his team. “We talked about winning it so it didn’t have to go to a point system to figure out who would win it,” Baker said. “Our guys were very excited to get the first piece of hardware in the county.” Along with Roser’s 152 yards, Curless ran for 56 yards on 12 carries. He was also 3-12 passing for 47 yards and three interceptions. Alec Wells led the Norse defense with nine tackles, while Jared Kirtlan had five. Casper led the

Squires with 177 yards rushing on 26 carries and a touchdown, while Evan Olinger had 46 yards on one carry, and Evan Milam had 16 yards on six carries. Sainsbury was 3-8 in the air for 50 yards and one touchdown, while Griese had two catches and a touchdown, and Harlan, Brodi Carter and Nick Eubank all had one each. Thad Miller led Manchester’s defense with 12 tackles, while Sainsbury had eight, and Casper had seven. Manchester will travel to North Judson (3-6) in the Class 2A Sectional 26 this Friday at 7:30 EDT (6:30 CDT), while the Norse will be at Central Noble (0-9) in the Class 1A Sectional 35 at 7:00 p.m.”

cross the finish line after Augustus. Tracy finished eighth in 16:48, Joe Burcroff took 18th in 17:14, Seth Frye came in 19th in 17:19, Austin Andrews placed 42nd in 17:56, Austin Eads took 45th in 18:01, and Austin Frye took 55th in 18:27. The Wabash boys cross country team

also competed at the Marion meet. Sam Hall advanced to semistate after placing 14th in 17:04. The team took 10th. Southwood’s Haley Heath ran as an individual in Marion. She took 19th in 20:19, four places from advancing to semistate for the second-straight season as a sophomore.

Manchester’s Mathew Fahs-Brown came in seventh to earn an individual spot at semistate. He ran the course in 16:49. The Norse and Hall will advance to the New Haven Semistate Saturday, while FahsBrown runs at the New Prairie Semistate.

Southwood: 41 Wabash: 15

by J.D. Sparks Southwood sophomore quarterback Robbie Cole threw for 367 yards in an aerial display against Wabash Friday. The Knights totaled 561 total yards of offense in a 41-15 rout over the Apaches at Southwood. “Robbie Cole keeps getting better and better,” said Southwood Head Coach Dave Snyder. “He’s moving really well in the pocket. He’s had his ups and his downs, but he’s been real good lately.” Cole completed six passes of at least 28 yards, including two of at least 40 yards and one 88-yard touchdown catch and run to Kyle Weaver in the fourth quarter that made the score 41-8. Weaver had three catches for 115 yards. “Kyle just outran the defenders on that one-there was just a group of players there in the middle of the field and then Kyle just came out and beat everybody to the end zone,” Snyder said. Cole connected with Danny Goff six times for 153 yards. In the first half alone, Goff had three catches for 107 yards. “Danny played real well and had some great catches,” Snyder continued. “He had one diving catch on the far side of the field, almost going out of bounds, and then had another one that helped set up the first Nathan (Hollars) touchdown.” Sophomore running back Nathan Hollars rushed the ball 20 times for 147 yards and found the end zone four times. He scored twice in the first quarter, helping the Knights to a 14-8 lead. Hollars scored his third touchdown with 11:12 left in the

second quarter. Goff ’s 47-yard reception from Cole helped set up Hollars’s 15-yard scoring run. Later in the second, Hollars took off for 45 yards, setting up a Jordan Boyer seven-yard touchdown reception from Cole. Hollars’s fourth touchdown run put the Knights up 34-8 with 6:48 left in the third. After an Apache fumble put the Knights on Wabash’s 26-yard line, Hollars was given the ball twice. The first run went for five yards and then he plowed his way through the defensive line for 21 yards and a score on the second. “There have been games where Hollars has ran more than 30 times,” Snyder said. “He seems to get stronger and stronger as the season goes on. He’s running real hard and looked good Friday.” Zach Hobson put a cap on the Knights’ scoring in the fourth with a 32-yard field goal. Hobson was 5for-6 in extra-point tries, too. On defense, Ryan Barton collected a pair of interceptions and 17 tackles. Garrett Porter added 12 tackles. “We defended the pass well,” Snyder continued.

“Barton had two interceptions and a couple of passes batted down. (Wabash’s) last touchdown in the fourth quarter, Hipskind made a great throw. It was defended nicely by us, but sometimes you can’t do anything. That throw was perfect.” Hipskind had a touchdown pass to Justin Holley in the fourth quarter. Holley also hauled in a touchdown pass from Kodi Clemons in the first quarter to help the Apaches take their only lead, 8-7, with 2:53 on the clock. Tyler Brewer ran for approximately 200 yards, but no official stats were released by The Paper’s press time. Southwood (2-7) returns to action at home Friday for the first round of Sectional 35 action against Fremont (45) at 7 p.m. Snyder said getting a pair of wins was big for the Knights. “The guys are having fun and the defense, they’re locked in and letting the coaches know who to key in on,” he said. “It was huge to get those wins.” Wabash (0-9) takes on Rochester (6-3) at Alumni Field.

MU wins over Earlham Manchester University: 45 Earlham: 9 NORTH MANC H E S T E R — M a n c h e s t e r University gave a crowd of better than 2200 at Carl Burt Field a Homecoming 2012 treat Saturday, Oct. 13. The Spartans, improving to 3-4 overall and 3-2 in Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference, took advantage of a stout rushing attack

and more impressive defense to subdue Earlham 45-9. MU picked up 291 yards on the ground, while the defensive unit limited the Quakers to 52 yards rushing and 221 yards total. Coach Shannon Griffith’s squad bolted out to a 31-0 halftime lead after junior quarterback Nick Williams (Fort Wayne, Ind.) rushed in two scores and threw for another. The Black and Gold was aided by an interception, stop-

ping Earlham on downs twice and two 70-plus-yard marches. The visitors, dipping to 0-6 and 0-4, did manage a pair of second half scores to avoid a shutout. Manchester also reached the end zone twice in the third period when freshman running back Tyler Truax (Kendallville, Ind.) dove in from four yards out and senior fullback/tight end Dante Dinkins (East Chicago, Ind.) went

in from a yard out. Williams’ 19 carries for 134 yards on the ground and nineof-13 passing for 120 yards topped the offense. Truax added 51 yards on the ground on nine carries, while sophomore running back Austin Adams (Dowagiac, Mich.) also scored as touchdown. Senior wide receiver Kurt Monix led the receiving corps with four catches for 74 yards and a touchdown.

Senior defensive end Aron Miller (LaGrange, Ind.) highlighted the defensive efforts with two sacks among his three tackles for losses. Senior defensive back Jake Butler (South Bend, Ind.) tallied five and a half tackles. MU puts its threegame win streak on the line with an HCAC road trip to Mt. St. Joseph Saturday, Oct. 20. Kickoff is 1:30 p.m. at Schueler Field on

MSJ’s campus. The Spartans’ three-game win streak is the program’s longest since the 2009 squad reeled off four straight. Monix moved to 111 career receptions with his four catches. He is nine shy of Jared Yoder’s 120 for sixth place. The 45 points for the Black and Gold are the most in a game since the 2007 team posted 54 against Hiram.

Freedom of Expression: Use it Wisely! Dear editor, Freedom of expression is the most important right granted to us by The Constitution of the United States. This right to free speech enables us, when used morally and conscientiously, to pursue and enjoy all other rights given by this document. During an election season, it becomes important to not only express this right by choosing and voting for a candidate, but also to observe how the candidates running for the highest office in our land are exercising their rights to freedom of expression. C o m p a r i n g Sesame Street to Wall Street, blaming an obscure, yet offensive movie trailer viewed on You Tube for the assassination

of four Americans, telling owners of businesses, “You didn’t build that!” are foolish and shameless examples of the exercise of freedom of expression. After weeks of being bombarded by this shallow and deceptive speech, we should feel compelled to make our voices heard. Every Presidential election makes a difference, and this one is destined to be a nationchanger. We must purpose to elect leaders who are committed to discussing imperative issues intelligently and honestly. To exercise our freedom of expression in the way the framers of the Constitution intended, a citizen must be able to sort out the truth. He or she must

be able to recognize and reject propaganda that clouds issues with the kind of deception that keeps voters confused and apathetic. Freedom of expression demands this of us. Nov. 6, 2012, provides us the opportunity of exercising the right to vote for our next President. We must elect a President who will lead by using his freedom of expression to speak the truth without deception, who understands what has made our nation strong, and who is courageous enough in today’s world-wide political environment to defend the greatness of America.

Halloween events open to the community

The Wabash Community Band, under the direction of Bob Urbani, will perform at the Winchester Senior Center, 239 Bond St., Wabash, on Sunday, Oct. 28, at 2 p.m. The concert will be a real treat as band members will be dressed in Halloween costumes. Guests are encouraged to come in costume and bring the family to hear seasonal favorites and enjoy Halloween goodies. All ages are welcome to this family-friendly event. There is no admission charge. Travel back in time on Halloween to Sleepy Hollow, as Washington Irvingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whimsical spooky story comes to life in classic radio-drama fashion. Joel Froomkin, artistic director of the New Huntington Theatre, Huntington, brings the American Halloween classic to life in this one-man storytelling presentation, which utilizes hundreds of sound effects to help set the mood. Ichabod Crane, a lean, lanky, a n d superstitious schoolm a s t e r from Connecticut arrives in Sleepy Hollow and soon sets his heart on Katrina Van Tassel, the daughter of the wealthiest farmer in the village. As he competes for her hand against the town rowdy, Brom Bones, his ears are filled with strange tales of the Headless Horseman, a soldier that had his head shot off by a stray cannonball during the Revolutionary War, and whose ghost, rides through the forest in nightly quest of his missing noggin. The performance begins at 1 p.m. Guests are encouraged to dress in black to add to the atmosphere. Light refreshments will be served with time to meet and greet Joel and coowner of the New

Huntington Theatre, Rich Najuch. Admission is offered by donation. The Winchester Senior Center is operated by Living Well in Wabash County, CoA, Inc. that provides services to one-in-four Wabash County residents through the C o m m u n i t y Cupboard food pantry, Wabash County P u b l i c Transportation, and the Dallas L.

tilled fields, despite the crop residue

cover,” Vyn said. “But we may never

see such a severe, early drought occur with that combination of timing and high temperatures again. “A later-season drought occurring after deep early root establishment would have favored no-till more.” If farmers decide to practice fall tillage, they can choose from several management techniques. Standard primary tillage procedures include using a disk, chisel plow, deep ripper, moldboard plow or strip tiller. Vyn said agronomists favor strip tillage because it allows for minimal soil mixing and residue incorporation while preparing fields for earlier seeding of spring crops, and it can be combined with fertilizer application. “It’s a proven, versatile tillage practice that creates a warmer, drier zone of soil in the spring that ensures timely seed placement in both corn-soybean and corn-corn rotations,” Vyn said. “Precision automatic guidance systems have also simplified crop row placement in the center of the loosened strips.” He said there’s still time yet for farmers to decide whether fall tillage is needed for their fields and that they shouldn’t rush the decision. With fall rains, farmers should be cautious and not rush fall tillage on soils that may be too wet.

Lieutenant Governor hopeful visits Charley Creek Inn

By J.D. Sparks Sue Ellspermann, Indiana State Representative and Republican Mike Pence’s gubernatorial running mate, recently paid a visit to Wabash’s Cloud Club at Charley Creek Inn for a reception in her honor. One of the key issues Ellspermann spoke about was

expanding export opportunities for agriculture. “Over the last eight years, the department of agriculture was actually carved out in Indiana state government,” she said to The Paper. “Part of what they do is promote Indiana agriculture worldwide. They’ve begun trade missions to

other countries. We will continue that and expand the efforts across the glove for farmers to export their goods.” Ellspermann continued: “One of the major policies we have developed is the development of a food and agriculture innovation corridor. That came out of a BioCrossroads report.

Biocrossroads is the think tank of agriculture and life sciences. They looked at the assets in Indiana, such as Purdue, one of the top agriculture schools, Dow Agrosciences, Elanco animal sciences, and our strong farming infrastructure in the state. “Much like North Carolina research tri-

angle parks, the food and agriculture corridor will mimic that. New innovations, new hybrids, new food process technology, and new mechanization for farming, etc.all of that is a great opportunity to grow aggriculture.” Ellspermann also said that, if Pence won, the two would review regulations on

small businesses. “If you think about small businesses, small business create almost half the jobs in Indiana,” she said. “As a small business, you need to operate in an environment that allows you to survive and thrive. Regulations make it very difficult for small businesses to grow. We are propos-

ing a one-year moratorium on state regulations, meaning that we don’t create more red tape. “And during that year, we will really go back through the Office of Management and Budget and revisit the regulations that are already there and can they stand up to an ROI, or return on investment, for Hoosiers. “Then, going forward, we will have a process that really, more closely, measures the impact of future regulations.” Ellspermann said there will still be regulations during the moratorium, however. “We do recognize that safety and some areas of the environment are necessary,” she continued. “We’re not saying ‘no regulation.’ We’re just saying we must be sensitive to how we enable companies to operate.” The Pence Roadmap for Indiana outlines many of the key issues Pence will address if he is elected.

Purdue creates graduate certificate in hybrid vehicles

Purdue University has launched a new graduate engineering certificate program in hybrid vehicles, a specialty that is expected to grow in demand as hybrids become more common. “This program is a great example of integrating research and education,” said Leah H. Jamieson, the John A. Edwardson Dean of Engineering and R a n s b u r g Distinguished Professor of Electrical and C o m p u t e r Engineering. “The program gives students technical depth and also breadth, and is responsive to industry needs.” The new certificate program is administered by the School of M e c h a n i c a l Engineering but open to any graduate student in engineering. “We expect the program to grow and become permanent at Purdue,” said Gregory Shaver, an associate professor of mechanical engineering. “After the program ramps up, we hope to issue 10 certificates per year and to have 30 students enrolled at any given time.” Participants will be required to take one course in each of three areas: the archi-

tecture, or the integrated layout of the powertrain, which consists of the engine, electric or hydraulic motor and generator, transmission and other components; energy storage and controls, with courses focused on batteries or the design of algorithms needed to control the system; and “prime movers,” which refers to the design of engines, electric motors and generators, hydraulic motors and pumps, and systems that capture braking energy with flywheels. The systems use electric motors as generators while the vehicle is braking, producing power to recharge the battery pack. The Hybrid Vehicle Systems Certificate program was developed through the Hoosier Heavy Hybrid Center of Excellence (H3CoE), which was formed last year and funded with a $1 million

grant from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Graduate A u t o m o t i v e T e c h n o l o g y Education initiative. The center will hold a hybrid vehicles workshop at Purdue on Sept. 12. Experts from industry and academia will gather to discuss the latest technologies and challenges for hybrid trucks and cars. Engineers from Cummins Inc., Allison Transmission Inc. and Navistar International Corp., will give talks to address the promise and challenges facing widespread use of hybrid technologies in mediumand heavy-duty vehicles. The center is leading an effort to cut fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions in half for commercial vehicles by perfecting hybrid technologies for the world’s burgeoning bus and truck fleets. Buses and trucks, par-

ticularly vehicles used to transport goods, represent a huge percentage of global fuel consumption and tailpipe emissions, said Shaver, who co-directs the center with Maryam Saeedifard, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering. The center falls under the umbrella of the Purdue Energy Center Advanced Ground Vehicle Power and Energy Storage initiatives. More information about the workshop is available by contacting Pankaj Sharma, managing director of the Energy Center, 765-496-7452, The workshop will be from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Burton D. Morgan Center for E n t re p re n e u r s h i p, Room 121, at the university’s Discovery Park. Registration is free but limited to students and faculty

Kokomo man dies from injuries suffered in Tipton County crash .

Oct. 8 at approximately 7:30 a.m., officers from the Indiana State Police and the Tipton County Sheriff ’s Department responded to a single vehicle crash on Tipton County Road 500 North at Tipton County Road 300 West, which severely

injured a Kokomo man. The crash investigation by Master Trooper Jeff Franklin revealed that Morris Calvert, 50, Kokomo, was driving a 1991 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck westbound on County Road 500 North.

Calvert failed to negotiate a curve at County Road 300 West and traveled off the north side of the road into a ditch. The Chevrolet continued through the ditch and came to rest after slamming into an earth embankment. Calvert was trans-

Wabash High School marching band and their accomplishments at the state fair. Their placement was doubly impressive because of the size of the band, which consisted of six marching instruments, nine stationary percussionists and one amazing band captain. This small but mighty band defeated 19 other bands, some of which were three times their size. Despite the discouragement of several band members dropping out at crucial times in the season, this little team never gave up. Cheers to these kids who worked their hearts out in 90 plus temperatures for most of the summer! Cheers to Mr. Woodruff, the Terrys and Ms. Fritz who encouraged this band to be its best! How lucky we are to have music professionals at our schools who care so much about our kids. We hope Mr. Woodruff will be with Wabash Schools for a long time to come.

Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it’s illegal to request any money before delivering its service. All funds are based in US dollars. 800 numbers may or may not reach Canada.
