QuickMed opens in Wabash County Hospital

by Kalie Ammons Don Barger and the folks at Wabash County Hospital have been working together to develop a facility to meet the demand for immediate care by patients whose conditions are not serious enough to warrant a trip to the emergency room. “Your typical coughs, colds, flu symptoms, sprains, strains, burns if you have something in your eye, just whatever needs immediate care, but is not an emergency. If you have shortness of breath, loss of consciousness, chest pain, you know, you should still probably go to the emergency room. But if you sprained your ankle playing basketball or you just don’t feel well, then that’s what we’re there for,” Barger told The Paper. QuickMed opened on Monday, Sept. 16 and is currently in the hospital, adjacent to the emergency room, however, Barger hinted at some plans to construct a new facility. “We are also looking at some space offsite. We’re revising some floor plans and we would like to move offsite, probably the first of the year,” Barger explained. The Wabash QuickMed will provide previously limited services in Wabash County. Community members will now have access to reliable, walk-in health care without having to maneuver around a family doctor’s schedule or drive out of town. “QuickMed is going to be comprised of two different components, one being the occupational health component and one the walk-in clinic component,” Barger said. “I am hoping between the occupational health patients and the walk-in patients we see 20 patients a day. I think that would be reasonable. Twenty-five, I think, would be really good,” Barger pre-

dicted. Barger ensured that the new QuickMed would be an advantageous addition to the community. Expanded occupational health clinic hours will make it easier for patients to schedule appointments around work, and immediate care will fix more medical issues here at home. “It’s actually going to benefit both the employers in the community and the general public. As far as benefiting the employers, …we have the service, but we are expanding the hours. Before we were open 8 a.m to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, now we’re going to be open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. “As far as the community, we are going to be offering the walk-in clinic for those people who do not have a family doctor and need immediate care, or for some reason, the doctor’s office is closed, or they can’t get in that day. What we have found is people are tending to leave the community, and [they are] going somewhere else for that service. So now, that service will be available in town for them,” Barger said. QuickMed was an idea of Wabash County Hospital employees and requires no outside sources or big businesses taking resources away from the community. It has already provided new jobs and will provide more when the new facility is finished. Barger assured, “We are a service of the hospital, we’re all hospital employees, and so the hospital is behind this. It’s not like we’re some unknown entity or outside group coming into Wabash. We just want to make sure that we’re serving the community.” (continued on page 2)

Relay For Life raises $48,000 by Eric Stearley In 1996, local residents got together and organized Wabash County’s first annual Relay for Life, raising just over $2,000 for the American Cancer Society. Last Friday and Saturday, Sept. 13 and 14, Paradise Springs Historical Park hosted Wabash’s 18th consecutive Relay for Life, raising over $48,000 to fight the disease. As confetti filled the air, the relay kicked off with the survivor lap. Nearly 100 cancer survivors walked triumphantly around the relay track as friends and family cheered them on. Jennifer Denney sang “You Raise Me Up” as a sea of purple encircled the park. “The survivors wear purple, which represents all cancers,” said Amanda Wiley, one of two survivor chairs for this year’s event. Twenty-eight years ago, Dr. Gordy Klatt raised $27,000 to fight the disease by walking and running around a track in Tacoma, Wash. for 24 hours straight. From one man’s idea, the Relay For Life has (continued on page 2)

Relay For Life raises $48,000... continued from front page grown into a worldwide event, which has raised more than $5 billion for the American Cancer Society to date. This year’s theme was “Relay Around the World.” Twenty-five teams registered for this year’s event, and each team represented a different country. Many teams took the opportunity to dress up for the theme. Team members took turns walking the track in 15-minute intervals. Teams had booths set up where they brought in money for the relay. Ford Meter Box, playing the part of Mexico, sold Walking Tacos to those at the

event. Beacon Credit Union sold pizza bites as team Italy. At one corner of the track, Jami Hashbarger offered chair massages. Scheduled events included: a fashion show, where contestants collected donations as onlookers voted on the winner with their donations, a group picture of all the survivors, and musical performances. Another way organizers found to bring in a large portion of the money raised at the event was through the silent auction. Members of the community donated items to the auction, which

are then bid on by people at the event. Each team also donated a country themed basket. Jan Mattern, who has worked the event in Wabash every year since its start, brought the auction to the local relay five years ago. “There are literally hundreds of items,” Mattern said. Among the items auctioned off was a rocking horse valued at $300. The Saw Dust Gang donated a large wooden bowl, a “one of a kind” piece turned out of a giant ash burl. A week at a Florida condo was auctioned off for $825. The auction brought in more than $4,000 for the event. “I pull all my best friends in for the relay,” said Mattern, who lost both her mother and father to cancer. “To me it’s

lost his paternal grandfather, Wabash resident Charlie Holley, to lung cancer at age 50. He has an aunt who survived breast cancer, and his maternal grandmoth-

er survived colon cancer. A member of Team Beacon, Holley said it was ultimately his coworkers at the bank who got him involved. Holley, was at the

event for the full 24 hours and said that this year, they were trying something new by having the event in September, rather than in June, as it has (continued on page 3)

QuickMed opens in Wabash County Hospital... continued from front page The QuickMed has

already hired two nurse practitioners and a certified medical assistant to help with the expanded hours. “Once we move offsite, we will also then be hiring another registration person and two x-ray techs, because we’re going to be offering x-rays when we move offsite. But right now we can just use the hospital’s

and a bathroom for drug testing. One examination room has a bed for nauseated and dizzy patients. The other is a standard examination room for minor injuries and illnesses. All of the registration is done on computers to speed up the process and reduce errors. The QuickMed will take various payment options. “We’ll accept insurance, we will accept Medicare, Medicaid, and we will take self pays, but the expectation is that if you are self-pay, that you are going to pay at the time of service.” Wabash is currently attractive for medical services, having the only hospital in the area. It is believed that the QuickMed will only add to this attraction and bring more business to Wabash, while still benefiting existing residents. “I just think it’s a great opportunity for the hospital and for the community, you know, that the hospital’s stepping up and offering this service. I think that it’s going to be a win-win,” Barger said with a smile.

pants, especially those who are battling cancer during the event. Lynne Schafer, who has been fighting cancer since May 2012, put her laps in at the event on Friday, despite her chemotherapy session earlier in the day. Schafer explained that she’s lost her hair twice, and that this is the third type of chemotherapy she has endured, but she’s optimistic and happy to be at the event. “I feel good, you know. I get tired sometimes, but ya, I feel alright.” Holley said that another motivation for moving the date of the event was getting the area schools involved. As MC, he introduced the crowd to Southwood Elementary School student Delayna Rigney and the Northfield High School Jazz Band

Friday night, as well as the Wabash High School Choir on Saturday. Northfield sent its own team to the event, Jamaica Me Crazy. Holley and the other organizers try to get as many groups, involved in the event as possible. “That’s what I love. It gets this community together, but at the same time, it supports a global cause,” Holley said. When the sunset on the event Friday night, the park remained alight. A Luminaria Ceremony was held around the track as a memorial. The names of those who have lost their battles with cancer scrolled across a projector screen in the Luminaria pavilion. Teams and individuals purchased white paper bags for $10 to decorate in memory of victims. Tea lights were placed in the

bags shortly after dark, and these worked as lanterns lighting the way for the late-night walkers. Kim Galligan sang and played guitar to start the ceremony. Afterward, Staircase Wit performed. The overnight event allowed people to camp at the historical park. Between walking shifts, team members gathered around campfires, sharing survival stories and memories of loved ones. “It got cold the last couple hours,” Holley said. When he checked the thermometer at 6:30 a.m. it was 45 degrees outside. Though they were cold Saturday morning, participants stuck it out for a mutt strut, where relayers walked the track with their pets. Following this was a corn hole tournament, a fight

back ceremony, and a victory lap. Even after the closing ceremony, several people continued to walk around the track. Among these were Team Hill members Tiffany Key, Paige Wilson, and Jealousy Keza. The girls sang during the event as part of Symphonic Voices, a group of vocalists from the Wabash High School Choir. All three have family members who have been affected by cancer. The group sang “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” among other songs. All three were excited to be a part of the event. “I love it,” Keza said. “I think it’s a really great thing for our community to do. It affects all of us so it’s a great thing. It brings us together.” “This is huge!” Wilson added. Fifty thousand dollars is huge. Every

state-of-the-art level as all the other laboratories located in Forney Hall on the West Lafayette campus. CountryMark donated $25,000 to the project, which finished renovations this summer. Students can now be educated using laboratory equipment and experiments designed for today’s industrial reality. “We see great value in the chemical engineering program at Purdue,” said Smith, who also serves on the Purdue University Industrial Advisory Council. “One of its greatest strengths is the ability to introduce a world class education to students

with a deep-seeded midwestern work ethic. The synergy of these two components creates extraordinary talent that we seek at CountryMark and is sought by manufacturing companies worldwide.” Purdue University is home to one of the largest chemical engineering programs in the United States, with 30 faculty members, 530 undergraduate students and 142 graduate students. During the 2012-13 academic year, 138 BS and 22 PhD degrees were granted. “On behalf of Purdue’s School of C h e m i c a l Engineering, I am deeply grateful to

CountryMark and our distinguished alumnus Charles E. Smith, for this contribution to upgrade our Unit O p e r a t i o n s Laboratory. This laboratory course is taken by all chemical engineering seniors, and is a cornerstone of our curriculum,” said Arvind Varma, the Jay and Cynthia Ihlenfeld Head of C h e m i c a l Engineering and R.

Coyotes for Charity has record season, raises more than $10,000

By Eric Stearley Local hunters have discovered a way to enjoy their favorite pastime, control the population of a public nuisance and support a good cause all at the same time. Coyotes for Charity had sportsmen from Wabash, Miami, Fulton, Kosciusko, Grant and Howard counties taking aim at cancer and coyotes simultaneously in

this, their 10th year. The group sends coyote pelts to auction, donating the proceeds to the American Cancer Society. The group started in 2004 with four hunters harvesting five coyotes. This year the group, which exceeded 100 hunters, harvested 266 coyotes, more than the first five years combined. Though they aren’t typically prized for

their meat or taxidermy trophies like deer, coyote hunting has become popular for a number of reasons. Coyote season is long, spanning five months from Oct. 15 to March 15. A coyote posing a legitimate nuisance on private land can be taken any time of the year. Unlike deer, there are no restrictions on hunting hours or using spotlights to hunt. In addition, there are no firearm restrictions when hunting coyotes, so hunters have a chance to use high-powered rifles, prohibited when hunting their antlered friends.

JUST A FRACTION OF THE MORE than 100 hunters who participated, the group above includes from left to right: (First Row) Mary Mosley, David Zintsmaster, Mark Johnson, John Alexander, John Sheffield, Seth McKinney and dog Dan, Jay Lynn and dog Daisy, Nic Turner and dog Harvey and David Graber.

auction. As a result of generous partners, Coyotes for Charity is able to give the total raised through fur sales. The Square D Foundation, through the Relay for Life Campaign, made a matching donation, as did a local anonymous resident. This tripled the group’s donation, allowing the organization to give the American Cancer Society

$10,176 just this year. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. According to the ACS, more than 11,000 cases of childhood cancer will be diagnosed in 2013. This year’s donation brings their 10year total to $33,280, every dollar of which brings cancer closer to its end.

Local woman thanks Wabash City Police officer for a job well done Dear editor, I would like to publicly thank and show my appreciation for the Wabash City Police Officer who was driving the SUV police vehicle on the evening of Monday, Sept. 9. Monday, late evening, I went jogging at the Field of Dreams/Charley Creek Trail. It was late so therefore it was very dark but I wanted to get my run in since it was a little bit cooler. The Wabash Police Officer was exiting the Field of Dreams while I was entering the park for my jog. The Wabash City Police Officer came back into the park and waited for me to finish my jog. I greatly appreciate the officer’s decision to come back to the park even though I carry pepper spray. We are lucky as a community to have good quality public servants as this police officer. Thank you officer for your service! Lesley Downing

Leonhard was one of 242 students surrounded by family, friends, and college faculty and staff during the ceremony. “As you don your white coats tonight, I hope you will reflect on the responsibility the coat symbolizes,” said Tricia Berry, P h a r m . D . , BCPS,’94/’95, professor and interim senior associate dean of pharmacy. “By entering covenantal relationships with

patients, you will need to place their needs before your own. It will also be important to recognize the need to not only care for your patients, but to care about them, as well.” Kevin Colgan, ‘77, corporate director of pharmacy at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago and vice chair of the College’s Board of Trustees, spoke at the ceremony. After all of

the students received their coats, they recited the Pledge of Professionalism, led by third-year student Jeffrey Pasucal. The pledge, signed by all of the students, will be displayed on campus. The class of 2017 will spend the next four years gaining knowledge and skills to prepare them to become leaders in the profession of pharmacy.





Public gets Free TV with no monthly bills Federal law makes TV network giants broadcast Free TV signals regionally in crystal clear digital picture in all 50 states allowing U.S. households to pull in Free TV with a sleek $49 micro antenna device engineered to pull in nothing but Free TV channels with no cable, satellite or internet connection and no monthly bills

Who Gets Free TV: Listed below are the Wabash area zip codes that can get Free over the air TV channels. If you find the first two digits of your zip code immediately call: 1-888-752-7147 INDIANA - Today’s announcement by CompTek has the Free TV Hotlines ringing off the hook. That’s because Wabash area residents who find their zip code listed in today’s publication are getting Free TV channels thanks to an amazing razor-thin invention called Clear-Cast®. Wabash area residents who call the Toll Free Hotlines before the 48-hour order deadline to get Clear-Cast can pull in Free TV channels with crystal clear digital picture and no monthly bills . This announcement is being so widely advertised because a U.S. Federal law makes TV broadcasters transmit their signals in digital format, which allows everyone to receive these overthe-air digital signals for free with no monthly bills. Here’s how it works. Clear-Cast, the sleek micro antenna device with advanced technology links up directly to pull in the Free TV signals being broadcast in your area with crystal clear digital picture and no monthly bills. Clear-Cast was invented by a renowned NASA Space Technology Hall of Fame scientist who currently holds 23 U.S. Gov’t issued patents. For the past 20 years, he has specialized in developing antenna systems for NASA, Motorola, XM Satellite Radio and companies around the world. His latest patent-pending invention, Clear-Cast, is a sleek micro antenna device engineered to pull in the Free TV signals through advanced technology with no cable, satellite or internet connection and no monthly bills. “Clear-Cast is being released to the general public because we just don’t think people should keep paying for TV when they can get it for free,” said Conrad Miller, Manager of Operations at CompTek. “There’s never a monthly bill to pay and all the channels you get with Clear-Cast are absolutely free. So you see, Clear-Cast is not like cable or satellite. It was engineered to access solely the overthe-air signals that include all the top rated national and regional networks, like ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, CW and about 90% of the most watched TV shows like America’s Got Talent, NCIS, 60 Minutes, American Idol, The Big Bang Theory, The Bachelorette, Person of Interest, CSI, The Mentalist, Two and a Half Men, Sunday Night Football plus news, weather and more all for free with no monthly bills,” Miller said. “That’s why Clear-Cast is such a great alternative for everyone who is sick and tired of paying expensive cable and satellite bills every month,” he said. “People who get Clear-Cast will say it feels like getting an extra paycheck every month. You see, with Clear-Cast you’ll receive free over-the-air broadcast channels with crystal clear digital picture, not the cable or satellite only channels. So being able to eliminate those channels puts all the money you were spending back in your

pocket every month,” Miller said. And here’s the best part. The sleek micro antenna device called Clear-Cast is so technically advanced it pulls in even more of the channels being broadcast in your area for Free with no monthly bills. That way you can channel surf through the favorite TV shows. The number of shows and channels you’ll get depends on where you live. People living in large metropolitan areas may get up to 53 static-free channels, while people in outlying areas will get less. That means even if you’re in a rural area that just pulls in NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX and PBS broadcasts there’s hundreds of shows each year to watch for free. Consumers report that the crystal clear picture quality with Clear-Cast is the best they’ve ever seen. That’s because you get virtually all pure uncompressed signals direct from the broadcasters for free. Clear-Cast was engineered to link up directly like a huge outdoor directional antenna but in a lightweight, slim-line package. Its sturdy copper alloy and polymer construction will most likely far outlast your TV. It just couldn’t be any easier to get Free over-the-air digital TV shows with Clear-Cast. Simply plug it into your TV, place ClearCast on a window pane and run autoscan. It works on virtually any

NNEVER PAY A BILL AGAIN: Hoosiers will be on the lookout for their postal carrier because thousands of Clear-Casts will soon be delivered to lucky Wabash area residents who beat the 48-hour order deadline and live in any of the zip code areas listed below. Everyone is getting Clear-Cast because it pulls in nothing but Free TV channels with no cable, satellite or internet connection and no monthly bills.

model TV and is easily hidden out of sight behind a curtain or window treatment. Thousands of Wabash area residents are expected to call to get Clear-Cast because it just doesn’t

make any sense to keep paying for TV when you can get hundreds of shows absolutely free. So, Wabash area residents lucky enough to find their zip code listed in today’s publication need

to immediately call the Free TV Hotline before the 48-hour deadline to get Clear-Cast that pulls in Free TV with crystal clear digital picture. If lines are busy keep trying, all calls will be answered. N

How to get Free TV:

Listed below are the Wabash area zip codes that can get Free TV channels with no monthly bills. If you find the first two digits of your zip code immediately call 1-888-752-7147 beginning at precisely 8:30am this morning. Today’s announcement photo above shows just a handful of the major over-the-air broadcast networks you can receive with Clear-Cast for free. It saves a ton of money by not picking up expensive cable only channels like ESPN so there’s never a monthly bill. This is all possible because a U.S. Federal Law makes TV broadcasters transmit their signals in digital format, which allows everyone to use Clear-Cast to pull in Free TV channels with no monthly bills. CompTek is giving every U.S. household a 50% off discount to help cover the cost of Clear-Cast. Clear-Cast, the sleek micro antenna device is a one-time purchase that plugs in to your TV to pull in Free TV channels in crystal clear digital picture with no monthly bills. Each Clear-Cast normally costs $98, but U.S. households who beat the 48-hour deadline are authorized to get a 50% off discount for each Clear-Cast and cover just $ 49 and shipping as long as they call the Free TV Hotline at 1-888-752-7147 before the deadline ends or online at Trademarks and programs are the property of their respective owners and are not affiliated with or endorsing Clear-Cast.

Shepherd’s Chevrolet celebrates grand re-opening and 45th anniversary Open house held for employees & loyal Customers by Shaun Tilghman

Last Thursday, Shepherd’s Chevrolet, Inc., located at 1002 SR 114 W in North Manchester, hosted an open house to celebrate both the dealership’s grand re-opening and its 45th anniversary. Just under nine months ago, the North Manchester branch of the Shepherd’s Family Auto Group, which also has locations in Kendallville and Rochester, began a two-phase remodeling project. The first phase included building a 10,000-squarefoot facility for the new service department, while the second phase involved renovations to the existing retail facility. “We started the remodel inside after we moved to the new service department, which was around the second or third week of April,” said Tim Shepherd, President of the North M a n c h e s t e r Shepherd’s dealership, “and we finished during the first week of September, so this phase took about five months. We converted the old service department into a drive-thru service lane, a new lounge, a new conference room, a new GM (General Motors)

accessories room, a new car delivery area, and an expanded showroom with additional sales offices. “I think our finish date came at a very special time because it was September of 1968 when my father started this store, so it was really neat to be able to combine our grand re-opening with our 45th anniversary as a Chevrolet dealership in the community. We had close to 300 people come out and share their appreciation with us; it was definitely nice to see all of our loyal customers and it was a very special night.” The renovations to the local dealership were part of a GM program called Essential Brand Elements, through which Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac dealerships were encouraged to voluntarily participate in an initiative to improve the image of their facilities, according to Shepherd. Dealers that opted to participate in the program were expected to follow design guidelines for their respective brand, as set forth by GM. Those guidelines generally included designs for new exterior entrances with updated signage, a bright showroom with a customer greeting station, a modern customer lounge with free Wi(continued on page 21)

Local DAR promotes Constitution Week, offers free genealogy workshop

The monthly meeting of the Frances Slocum Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) took place on Sept. 10 in the Blocher Room at the North Manchester Public Library. Joyce Joy read the President General’s message from Lynn Forney Young. The Se ptember-October 2013 issue of the DAR American Spirit Magazine focused on celebrating the 226th anniversary of the Constitution and getting young people engaged in history and civics. Sept. 17 begins the national celebration of Constitution Week. The weeklong com-

memoration of America’s most important document is one of our country’s least known official observances. Our Constitution stands as a testament to the tenacity of Americans throughout history to maintain their liberties and freedom, and to ensure those inalienable rights to every American. The United States of America functions as a republic under the Constitution; which is the oldest document still in active use that outlines the self-government of a people. This landmark idea that men had the inalienable right as individu-

als to be free and live their lives under their own governance was the impetus of the American Revolution. Today, the Constitution stands as an icon of freedom for people around the world. “Constitution Week is the perfect opportunity to read and study this great document which is the safeguard of our American Liberties,” states DAR President General, Lynn Forney Young. “We encourage all citizens across the country to take time this week to reflect on our heritage of freedom and come together to celebrate America!” Treasurer, Barbara

The historical papers are on display at the National Archives building in Washington, D.C. The Frances Slocum Chapter will be holding a free genealogy workshop on Sept. 28 at 9:15 a.m.

in the Blocher Room of the North Manchester Public Library. Come find resources and methods of tracking family history, and explore your own connections to the American Revolution. Any woman over 18 years of age who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American 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 will take place Oct. 8 at 7 p.m. at the Grandstaff Hentgen Activity Room. Linda Kuester will present the program, on the subject “Women Spies of the Revolutionary War.”

“Smoking For A Cause” to support Life Center What started off as a few guys boasting to each other about their homemade smoked pork recipes has exploded into a community-wide porksmoking contest. Wabash’s first “Smoking For A Cause” barbecue contest fundraiser will

take place Saturday, Sept. 21 in the Wabash County Historical Museum parking lot. Smokers will be fired at 8 p.m. the night before, allowing the pork shoulder and ribs several hours to reach perfection. The event will open to the public at noon on

Saturday. Entries will be judged by a panel of five. There will also be a people’s choice award decided on through a blind taste test. The smoke-off will benefit the Life Center of Wabash County, which provides pregnancy tests

and ultrasounds, as well as support for expecting mothers and their future children. The group hopes to make the contest and fundraiser an annual event.

Fourth quarter heroics lift Knights over Valley

Apaches shut out by Warriors by Gary Andrews The Wabash Apache football team traveled to Denver Friday to take on North Miami, falling to the Warriors 21-0. The game got off to a good start for the Apaches when they executed an onside kick and recovered, only to fumble the ball away to North Miami on their offensive possession. The Warriors would take advantage of the turnover, scoring four minutes later to take a 7-0 lead. The second quarter would be much the same for Wabash, as the Apaches could not hold on to the ball. Taking advantage of a third Wabash fumble, North Miami scored with 5:10 left in the half to take a 14-0 lead. Wabash would fumble eight times in the first half, digging a 21-0 hole. North Miami would join the fumble parade in the third quarter, coughing up the ball twice with Wabash recovering, but the Apaches could not capitalize, making the 21-0 score the final.

by Gary Andrews The old saying “it’s not over til it’s over” hit the nail right on the head Friday for the Southwood football team as the Knights used some fourth quarter heroics to nip Tippecanoe Valley 34-33 on a 23 yard field goal by Zach Hobson with six seconds remaining in the game. Hobson would actually score the first and last points for the Knights. Valley would get the ball first, when on the third play Corey Phillipy would recover a fumble. Robbie Cole and the Knight offense would go to work from the 50. Cole hit Danny Goff to the 35 when it looked as though the drive would stall. On 4th and 13 Cole found Goff again to the Viking 20, then Jacob Lloyd yard to the 13. After two incomplete

passes, Hobson would connect on a 30-yard field goal to give Southwood a 3-0 lead. On Valley’s next drive, Nathan Hollars would pick off a pass on the 24 to stop Valley again. The Knight offense ended up punting and Valley responded this time, scoring from 1 yard out to lead 7-3 after one. Valley would score on their first possession of the second quarter, with the extra point being blocked to lead 13-3. Jake Smith would recover a Valley fumble on their second possession and the Knights made them pay. On second down from the 30, Nathan Hollars broke loose to find pay dirt and with a Hobson kick it was 13-10. Southwood would take the lead back on their next trip. After a Nick

Rebholz interception put the ball on the Valley 18, Cole would find Jacob Lloyd three plays later from 19 yards out with 3:35 to play to give Southwood a 17-13 lead. The potent Valley attack would respond on a 59-yard scoring pass play and led the Knights 19-17 at the half. Both defenses would tighten the screws in the third quarter, with the lone score coming with just 3.3 seconds on the clock when Valley punched it in to take a 25-17 lead with a quarter to go. The Knights would mount a long scoring drive to start the fourth quarter. With Cole hitting Lloyd yard, Jackson Blair and Noah Kirk, the Knights moved the ball to the Viking 13 when Cole found Blair with 7:36 remaining to

cut the lead to 25-23. Southwood went for two with Cole finding Lloyd yard alone in the end zone and the score was tied at 25. Aided by a Southwood facemask, Valley moved the ball down the filed quickly scoring at 5:04. The Vikings went for two and converted to lead 33-25. On the in suing kickoff, Nathan Hollars would find a gap at mid field and race 85 yards for a touchdown with 4:45 remaining to make it 33-31. The Knights went for two, but failed and trailed with just under 5:00 left. After Southwood forced Valley to punt, the Knights had one more shot from their own 28 with 2:49 on the clock. A hold on the first play made it first and 20, but the Knights didn’t panic. (continued on page 23)

Fi, and even the floor tiles and paint schemes were mandated. “We also totally gutted the inside – as far as lights, ceiling tiles, flooring, furniture, carpet, and paint – so that they all would align with the Essential Brand Elements for Chevrolet,” Shepherd explained. “GM wants every store to be similar, so that when you drive by a Chevrolet dealership you know it’s a Chevy dealer. So, they have a whole book that tells you the changes you need to make, and even the colors you need to use, in order to be compliant. “It wasn’t a must that we do these things, but as a Chevy dealer, we felt that it was necessary to be a part of Chevrolet’s vision for the future, which includes having a facility that would best serve our guests as they come in. We’re trying to make the whole experience more comfortable for them by offering such amenities as being out of the elements when they drop their car off for service or when they’re picking up their new vehicle for delivery. I think it also helps to show that we’re not only committed to Chevrolet, but also to continuing to serve our loyal customers

in North Manchester and throughout Wabash County and surrounding counties.” Back in April, just before the second phase began, Shepherd highlighted the importance of viewing this project as not just a means for improving their business, but as a means for helping the community their business serves, which is why they used local companies for all aspects of work. “When we sat down to look at the project, we wanted to make sure that we used as many local companies/businesses as possible,” he continued, “and at the same time, all of those companies we used have been Shepherd’s customers in the past. Overall, we would really like to thank the following companies: D & C Construction, Troy Eads Excavating, D/T Construction, Eads & Son Bulldozing, Gaunt & Son Asphalt, Ruppel Electric, FahsBrown Plumbing, Poston Plumbing Services, Van Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning, L.A.W. & Son, BIT Computers, Intersect Technologies, Hire’s Gifts & Electronics, and Harting Furniture. Also, we want to thank the Main View Inn for

preparing most of the food during the open house.” In the end, Shepherd stated that they participated in the improvement initiative in order to better satisfy the needs of their customers and to provide an enhanced customer experience overall. “For us, it was just the right time and it made a lot of sense to get onboard with a program like this,” he added. “It was a long process,” Shepherd concluded, “but it’s pretty rewarding to get up in the morning and know that we’re coming to work in such a quality facility. I just want to thank the employees for their hard work and patience throughout all of the construction, and I also want to thank our loyal customers for their patience during our remodel as well. We feel very blessed to have a facility of this caliber, and a business that’s been successful in Wabash County and the surrounding areas for 45 years now.” For more on the new design of the local Shepherd’s Chevrolet, visit m and click on Shepherd’s North Manchester.

TREATY Men’s Retreat will be Sept. 20-21 at Rainbow Christian camp. The theme will be “The Way of the Warrior,” With Main speaker: John Clark. WORDS OF WISDOM wrote by 12year-old Valeria Reed: Life is forever, love is forever! Want to be on top. Well no one can be on top! Cause that is life! I use to think I couldn’t set my mind to. But when I learned I could do anything I set my mind too. A true friend is a person who really cares for you and will be by your side when

things are really bad for you. Friends are like butterflies! They spread their wings and learn how to fly. That is how they stick together. Nobody is perfect. But even if you try, you will never be perfect. Because no one can be perfect. When you are bullied you can take it hard. But you know what, they are just jealous of how pretty you are. Everyone goes through hard times, but everyone makes it out and that is the good thing.” HAPPY BIRTHDAY Michael Garrett, Jackie

Fourth quarter heroics... continued from page 20 to the 28, then Jacob Lloyd at the 40. Hollars would then rush to the Valley 45. Cole connected with Blair to the 39 and on the next play Hollars ran to the 30. The Knights kept calm and with 46.6 on the clock Cole found Lloyd at the 14. After a Valley time out, Hollars would run twice to the 8, with Southwood calling timeout with 15 seconds left. The Knights elected to move the ball to field goal position, calling timeout with 9.6 on the clock and the ball on the 6. Zach Hobson then split the uprights with 6 seconds left to give the Knights a 34-33 lead. Not wanting to give Valley a chance for a run back, Hobson hit a squib kick and Valley had one shot

from their own 42. As they had the entire game, the Vikings put a pass high in the air for Tanner Andrews to haul down, but it was spoiled by the Knight defense which hung on for the 34-33 win. Robbie Cole was 17 of 31 for 220 yards and two touchdowns.

Nathan Hollars led the rushing attack with 53 yards on 18 carries. Jacob Lloyd had five catches for 72 yards. Jackson Blair had 5 catches for 59 yards. Danny Goff had 4 catches for 55 yards. Nathan Hollars had two catches for 21 yards. Noah Kirk had

one catch for 13 yards. Nick Rebholz, Noah Kirk and Nathan Hollars each had an interception. Jake Smith and Corey Phillipy had fumble recoveries. The Knights had 48 tackles on the night, led by Hollars with eight.

Janet Chamberlain explained the background of the Community Dinners that are held at the Zion Lutheran Church in North Manchester. The Urbana Yoke Parish is responsible for the dinners served on the 10th and 24th of September. Members fixed the meal, delivered it to the church, and helped six M a n c h e s t e r University students serve the meal and also helped with the clean up after the meal. Church members also help with the meal that is served at the Helping Hands each Wednesday of the month. Janet said there is a sign up sheet at the back of the church for those who are interested in helping with these mission projects. Alma DeVore read, “Talk to Him” about making God a part of your life and everything that you do. The treasurer’s report and secretary’s report were read and approved. Roll call was a good place to see fall foliage; several local spots were m e n t i o n e d . Favorable feedback of the retreat at Hidden Hollows was given. A thank you was read from Blessings in a Backpack for the donation given. Since Sept. 8 was Grandparents Day, Alma read from Chicken Soup for the Grandparent’s Soul and “A Grandchild’s Hand”. Some of the members then shared grandchild or grandparent stories. Hostesses Donna

Yentes and Esther Wagner served cupcakes and fruit cups to Alma DeVore, Eileen Weck, Doris Mattern, Martha Chamberlain, Lois Haupert, Kitty Baer, Janet Warnock, Lana Long, Helen Dawes, and Sarah Helt. Kitty Baer will host the October carry-in salad meal and meeting. URBANA LIONS CLUB met at the home of Lion Joe and Barb Adams on Sept. 9 for their first meeting of the New Year. The meal was a carryin supper with Joe preparing the pork loin on the grill and Barb fixing potatoes and providing all of the table service and drinks. Those attending were Ron and Shirley Anderson, Eldon Biehl, Ike and Gloria Binkerd, Max and Nancy Chamberlain, John and Judy Eltzroth, Luke and Darlene Hunt, Lowell Karns, Jerry and Lana Long, Marvin and Mary Ann Mast, Gene and Julie Miller, Michael and Bonita Snell and Matt Snell. The Urbana Lions Club’s second golf scramble will be Sept. 21 with tee off time at 9 a.m. at the Waldo Golf Club on SR 15. It is not too late to give a donation to this fundraiser or to play. The money raised will be used to help with the remodeling of the kitchen in the Community Building – a new floor, a new fan, and a hand-washing sink. If you would like to be involved in any way, please call Mary Ann Mast at (continued on page 25)

HIDDEN HOLLOWS RETREAT began in 1970 with the purchase of 48 acres. A pond was added in 1974 by damming up a ravine in one of the hollows serving as a recreation and campground area for 25 years. Dan and Virginia were married at one of the hollows in 1995. Focal points include a 17-foot fieldstone fireplace in the great room, Shaker cabinets and oak plank floors in the kitchen with corian countertops and tile topped by rows of rocks from the farm. A custom headboard is in the master bedroom along with a chair lounge handed down from Eugenia Honeywell. The master bath walls, countertops, and floor are made of honed natural limestone. Guest rooms reflect various themes including the Safari Dormitory, the Heathside Suite, the Rustic Room, Strawberry Room, Victorian Room and Fiesta Suite. (photo provided)

THE WABASH COUNTY CONVENTION & VISITORS BUREAU’S location houses a variety of businesses dating back to the late 1880’s. Today, some of the hardwood flooring, interior architecture and exposed brick wall are all original and in use as part of the décor for the Welcome Center. Renovations too nearly a year to complete for the grand opening held on April 30, 2013. (photo provided)

The home has 21 rooms, seven bathrooms and a half court basketball gym/entertainment area.

Varsity football action continues on Friday on Wabash WebTV By Bill Barrows All four Wabash County varsity football teams are at home this weekend for week #5 of the regular season. The Three Rivers Conference schedule continues this week. Tipp Valley, stinging from last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss at the final gun to Southwood, invades the land of the Norse as the Vikings take on Northfield. The Norse will be looking to execute better after last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss at Rochester. Whitko heads to Alumni Field to take on the Wabash Apaches. This matchup traditionally has been an early season measuring stick for both of these programs. Wabash is still looking for their first win of the season. Could a win at home be in the cards? Rochester travels to face Southwood for their traditional annual battle. Both teams are coming off wins that should provide momentum for this week. Rochesterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run game is powerful and the Knights have a well-rounded attack. This one could be a beauty! Wabash WebTV will be on site in the land of the Squires as North Miami travels over to Manchester to face former head coach Greg Miller and the Squires. Rick Harness and Jim Landrum will bring you all of the action from Manchester. There will be some emotion in this match up. Join Wabash WebTV every Friday evening for all of the exciting action of Indiana High School Football in the area. If you are at a game or cannot watch it live, an archive of the featured game is available on the website shortly after the completion of the games. Also, check out Wabash WebTV on Thursday, Sept. 19 for the Tipp Valley at Manchester volleyball game and on Tuesday, Sept. 24 for the broadcast of the Southwood at Northfield volleyball game.

Mighty Mississinewa Triathlon held eighth annual competition by Ashley Flynn This past weekend the Mississinewa Reservoir hosted their 8th annual M i g h t y Mississinewa Triathlon (MMT). The 187 participants gave it their all in a 500 yard swim in the reservoir, fol-

lowed by a 16.6 mile bike ride and finished with a 3.75 mile run on the old Frances Slocum Trail Road and Moswa hiking trail. This year’s overall male winner was Matthew Burrell, Indianapolis, with a time of 1:14:50.5. This was Burrell’s fifth time competing in

the MMT, and his first time as the overall winner. The overall female winner was Kami Meador of Dayton, Ohio with a time of 1:29:31.4. Meador is also a five-time participant in the MMT and a second time overall female winner. According to Larry Brown, an organizer for the event, participation numbers were down compared to previous years. Participants come from all regions of the country traveling from as far away as Texas and Oregon. “I really like that this event gives the staff and supporters

of the Mississinewa a chance to show off the property. We get comments regularly about the beauty of this place from people who had no idea it was here. It brings people back to the area and builds camaraderie among staff,” Larry Brown told The Paper of Wabash. The MMT raises funds for the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation, which is dedicated to supporting the DNR. The proceeds will be used to help purchase land around the Mississinewa Reservoir to be used for the public.

KAMI MEADOR, DAYTON OHIO, is the first female to complete the Mighty Mississinewa Triathlon. Meador has competed in this race five times and this is her second time winning overall female. (photo by Ashley Flynn)

THE WOMAN’S CLUBHOUSE, formerly the Orphan’s Home building, was commissioned by the Wabash County Commissioners in 1889. The building was remodeled in 1905 and a hospital was established until 1919 when the county bought the hospital and moved it to their current location on East Street in 1921. Today, the Woman’s Clubhouse houses events that are still regularly held by members and the general public. There are ice cream socials, luncheons with guest speakers, card clubs and many other social events that are available for the enjoyment of the community. (photo provided)

CHARLEY CREEK INN is located at the heart of downtown Wabash. This historic boutique hotel stands as a proud symbol of the 1920s.

In 2011, Charley Creek Inn received the Cook Cup, which is Indiana’s highest award for historic preservation. Charley Creek Inn has 30 beautifully appointed guest rooms and suites, with 20th century décor and 21st century amenities. Charley Creek Inn has on-site dining in “Twenty” and shopping in the Wine & Cheese and Ice Cream & Chocolate Shoppes. (photo provided)
