7H[W DQG 3KRWRV %\ 3+2(%( %$1.6 $VVRFLDWH (GLWRU The healing power of animals is no secret. Anyone, who has ever had to attend a funeral or make arrangements for a loved one, knows how sad and grief stricken one feels. But, what if, amidst the immense sadness and grief, one was greeted by a 68-pound, tail-wagging, loving sheepadoodle? Meet Titus Funeral Home’s furry, fourlegged employee, Hazel. Hazel is a 7-year-old sheepadoodle, who is owned by the funeral home’s associate, Stacy Huffer. With her help, Hazel finished her training for certification as a therapy dog. She is certified through Alliance of Therapy Dogs, and she helps bring comfort and joy to others. A sheepadoodle is a mixedbreed dog — a cross between the Old English sheepdog and poodle dog breeds. Huffer obtained Hazel in the winter of 2020. The two worked together during training, which took six months at a training facility in Wabash. Additionally, training took place at three facilities — two medical and one non-medical. “It helped socialize them,” explained Huffer of the training. “She is tested for temperament and basic manners, and she has a great temperament.” Hazel, who will be 8 years old in April, is trained to respond to visual cues. She has learned hand signals for different commands, such as sit, stay and lie down. Communicating visually with Hazel is less distracting than speaking to her during her use in grief therapy for often quiet events, such as visitations and funerals. Therapy dogs make the perfect companion to help ease anxiety and confusion of death. Even if she creates a distraction for a moment or two from the stress and grief a person is experiencing, her mere presence is enough to release “feel good” hormones, like serotonin and oxytocin. She can bring comfort without saying a word. Through her extensive training, Hazel is able to fulfill this need for those in Kosciusko County experiencing the loss of a loved one. Hazel is used at the funeral home on a case-by-case basis. The staff will ask a family if they would mind having Hazel around during a service or viewing. “We ask them first,” said the funeral home’s owner Cory Benz. “She’s good with adults and children.” When Hazel isn’t working at Titus Funeral Home, she enjoys chasing squirrels in the backyard, napping on her handler’s bed and cuddling on the couch. She may weigh 68 pounds, but she thinks she is a lap dog, Huffer said. Georgia, another grief therapy dog, is joining Hazel in helping those with grief. Now both dogs bring comfort to people during visitations and funerals. Georgia is 1 years old and is a Labrador, poodle, and Burmese mountain dog mix. Huffer obtained Georgia during the COVID pandemic. “Hopefully, we can alternate with them,” said Huffer of both of the comforting canines. In addition to serving people, the funeral home also offers pet cremation services through a partnership with Paws and Remember. It offers a full range of funeral care and cremation services for dogs, cats and other pets.

KNOW YOUR NEIGHBOR

It is good to be a king for a day %\ 0,.( '($. 6WDII :ULWHU Just imagine being along for a ride and all of a sudden you are driving the car. A big, fancy car carrying a lot of clout. Parker Wilburn found himself driving for show, and drove himself right into an NCCAA Men’s Golf National Championship. Wilburn, a sophomore golfer from Grace College, was just happy to be competing with his team at the 2021 NCCAA tournament in mid-October. Not the top golfer on his own squad per the averages, Wilburn was a solid complimentary piece but never saw himself as an alpha. That began to change after round one of the three-day championship, Wilburn posting a round of 69, then a 74 a day later to find himself in the conversation. Grace as a team was well behind Asbury and wasn’t going to catch them, but Wilburn had a shot. As scores on the final day started to come in, Wilburn wasn’t himself feeling like he was putting together rounds that were overwhelming, but just consistent. But his name was still sitting at the top, and things began to get very real, very quickly. “I thought it was kinda crazy after the first round. More funny

than anything,” Wilburn said. “I’m so used to checking the leaderboard and seeing who’s in the lead and being, I guess, intimidated by how good they are. So to know that someone may have been thinking that about me, made me laugh.” After all the scores were tabulated, Wilburn and Asbury’s Marcos deEzcurra were both tied at 223 and headed to a playoff. After starting his third round five over after four holes, he was one hole from being named a national champion. “I remember everything,” exclaimed Wilburn. “I felt very relaxed and in control. I knew that I was going to be All-American and I was happy with that. It was still obviously nerve racking because I kept thinking that I may never get this opportunity again. But having control over my golf swing and taking many breaks to look off into the ocean calmed my nerves.” Wilburn would outduel deEzcurra after a three-hole showdown to take honors as Grace’s first men’s golf champion, part of a big week for the program. Grace’s team finished fourth overall, tying it’s best finish at the NCCAAs. Wilburn is now attached to an incredible run for Grace College athletics. After winning just

In 2020, men’s soccer, men’s track and men’s tennis all added team banners for NCCAA championships, and so far in 2021, men’s and women’s cross country and women’s soccer have added NC-

CAA banners. Wilburn, who had averaged an 83.3 round average as a freshman, was shooting right at 80 per round as a sophomore before the NCCAAs. His 74.3 average for the tournament was his best tournament score of his career, and the first-day round of 69 was his best score as a Lancer.

“I’ve actually thought about this and I think it’s awesome how well we’ve done as a school,” noted Wilburn. “It’s really cool to say that I’ve been a part of that but really everyone on campus is a huge part of it. I personally have my awesome teammates, I wouldn’t have even been there without their great play, and coach (Denny) Hepler to thank. But it’s really everyone, we’ve created a culture of winning. Hard work, community, and most importantly character has been vital to that success. “You can really feel God’s work through our school and athletics, I believe it shows.”

decline, according to the figures I’ve seen, is 60%. If we could have identified more of the small birds we saw, our total for this trip would probably have been about 40% of our total this trip, a decline of 60%. We kept track of birds seen as we drove home and the numbers were about the same as the numbers we saw as we drove to New York. Birds of North America have declined by 60%. Incredible. I’ve never tried to count the little birds, the sparrows, chickadees, nuthatches, titmice, juncos, finches, and the somewhat larger birds, blue jays, and cardinals that flit in and out to our bird feeders. But they seem to be as numerous as ever. So, do the robins and mourning doves in the yard in summer and the red-winged blackbirds, in the cattails, around the marsh out by our pasture. But there are definitely fewer meadowlarks, brown thrashers and catbirds, song sparrows, chipping, field and vesper sparrows. I don’t remember the last time I saw a Henslow’s sparrow, or a cuckoo, black or yellow billed. The numbers of birds have changed and so has the weather. The temperature was 50 degrees a few days ago. Imagine, 50 degrees in northern Indiana at Christmas time.

chickadees, nuthatches, titmice, goldfinches, blue jays, cardinals, and a downy woodpecker, or two. Occasionally, there are other birds at my feeders. I’ve seen white-crowned and whitethroated sparrows. I’ve seen a purple finch. In the summer, I see house wrens almost daily. House wrens made a nest in the light fixture on the front porch one summer. I see flybys regularly in winter and summer. I see a turkey vulture almost every day, often several. I see crows, a Cooper’s hawk now and then or a sharp shinned hawk. I see birds every day, and I’m always looking for more. For example, a year ago, my eldest daughter and I drove to Ithaca, N.Y., and on the trip, we kept a list of the birds we saw we could identify as we drove. We saw turkey vultures, red-tailed hawks and kestrels, starlings, redwinged blackbirds and many smaller birds, which we couldn’t identify as we drove. But we kept track of them. We were surprised and disappointed at the totals. There just weren’t many birds. Christmas bird counts, breeding bird surveys and nesting reports have all shown a decline in bird numbers. But I had no idea how great the decline has been. There aren’t half as many birds in North America as there used to be. The

Syracuse-Wawasee Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Renea Salyer reported the chamber grew membership and had a record year financially. Among the many accomplishments during the course of the past year, Salyer shared the budget increased substantially, allowing for the addition of a part-time marketing assistant, Jill Garris. The chamber hosted a job fair, assisted businesses in securing employees through Syracuse Indiana, Employment Opportunities with more than 110 job postings, partnered with the Shop Local Network to provide additional marketing support to the membership, grew the chamber’s social media following and engagement, and accomplished gaining 40 new members while retaining 95% of previous members. Eleven ribbon cuttings were conducted. Salyer reported throughout the year, numerous new businesses opened and/or expanded and businesses in and around the community remained strong despite worker shortages. Additionally, Salyer secured Indiana’s Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch as the featured keynote speaker for the upcoming professional women’s luncheon next month. With various special events and activities scheduled for 2022, the goals include continuing to provide a variety of services to the member businesses and expanding knowledge about the needs of members.

I go to the bathroom, wash, dress, let the dogs out and back in, then sit down at the dining room table to eat my breakfast. Early as it is, birds are up, have been for awhile and are flying back and forth to the bird feeders outside the dining room window. I watch the birds as I eat breakfast. There are house sparrows, black-capped chickadees, white-breasted nuthatches, tufted titmice, dark-eyed juncos, goldfinches, blue jays, cardinals and a downy woodpecker or two. I see a hairy woodpecker now and then and a red-bellied woodpecker. When I finished eating breakfast, I moved to a room I call my study. It’s the room where I write, the room where my computer is. It has a large windows and outside the window a bird feeder, of course. There I see the same species of birds I see at the feeders outside the dining room window:

LEPC meeting schedule for 2022 announced Meeting dates for the Kosciusko County Local Emergency Planning Committee have been announced for 2022. All meetings are open to the public. Dates or 2022 will be: Feb. 10, May 12, Aug. 12 and Nov. 10. Meetings begin at 3 p.m. in the Justice Building, video conference room, 121 N. Lake St., Warsaw. Under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-ToKnow Act, local emergency planning committees must develop an emergency response plan, review the plan at least annually and provide information about chemicals in the community to citizens. Kosciusko County LEPC was formed as a result of the Federal Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act of 1986. Its purpose is to provide citizens and emergency responders with information about chemicals in Kosciusko County. The

law requires communities plan for chemical emergencies and establish a chain of command using the National Incident Management System to make sure requirements are met. The LEPC is part of the chain of command. The LEPC doesn’t plan emergencies, it plans for them. Worstcase scenarios become the focus of intensive exercises that test communications, command and control, field operations, equip-

ment, and other aspects of an emergency response plan. Emergency responders from industries, community organizations and government agencies work handin-hand to share information and training opportunities. Drills are held in different areas of the county to test and enhance skills. Tabletop exercises are sometimes used in place of full scale drills for planning emergency response.

Local quilt shops not only provide supplies for quilting, but also serve as a center of learning and creativity for quilters and sewers

embracing quilting. Through this unique art form, communities and history are stitched, layered and bound together. Celebrated Jan. 22, this year, Local Quilt Shop Day was established by the Fabric Shop Network, a trade association that represents more than 5,000 local quilt shop owners globally. To participate is easy - the Fabric Shop Network encourages the public to visit their local quilt shops in person or online Saturday, Jan. 22. Check with your local quilt shop for hours and days open as they may be impacted by local/ state health guidelines.

mother who was a Hungarian war refugee. Having a mother who grew up impoverished with limited resources was valuable. She taught her how to be resilient and improvise. She also discovered how to use materials around her in new and unusual ways. She loved exploring the rivers, forests, and reservoirs, which were readily available and freely at her disposal. Her nature seeking turned into an artistic craft. Now, she credits her body of work to include: watercolor, acrylic, assemblage (three-dimensional objects that project from the substrate), and jewelry. A lifechanging vehicular accident, which she survived, is the impetus for her work now. Bussert enjoys the mental therapy she receives when she is creating and designing her work. Stop by the exhibit to see how she channels her creative energy into her artistic expression. The public can view her work at Warsaw City Hall from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, except holidays. This exhibit will be available until March 31. As this is the new year, I will be doing a series on what is new in the world of art: new artists, new techniques, new museums and anything else interesting I find to share with you. I look forward to taking you on this journey into the now present art world and possibly even the future.

Wagon Wheel Junior will present ‘Rockin’ Robin Hood’ Wagon Wheel Junior will present “Rockin’ Robin Hood” Feb. 4, 5 and 7, at the Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts, Warsaw. Nottingham rocks in this exciting take on the legend of Robin Hood — fresh yet traditional. Told as an origin story, it begins in a happier time when Nottingham is wealthy and prosperous. A young orphan Robin and his twin sister, Hazel, arrive with big hopes to open an archery shop, but immediately run into trouble. King Richard has recently left for the Crusades, so the rotten sheriff of Nottingham and his avaricious

fiancé, Lady Blackwood, seize the opportunity to tax the town blind. Robin quickly makes an enemy of the sheriff and eventually becomes a wanted man, an outlaw. By the time he escapes to Sherwood Forest, he’s met all his legendary friends — Friar Tuck, Little John, Marian, and more — and brought the team together to help return what is stolen from the poor and eventually bring the evil sheriff down. Loaded with action, chase scenes, prison breaks, and an archery tournament simple to stage, the audience will especially love

the score by the award-winning creators Eric Rockwell and Joanne Bogart. With a wealth of ensemble numbers, it blends medieval ditties into upbeat rhythms and tempos, perfectly capturing the timeless spirit of an outlaw hero. The shows will be at 7 p.m. Feb. 4, and 2 p.m. Feb. 5-6. General admission tickets are on sale now for $12 and are available by calling Wagon Wheel’s ticket office at (574) 267-8041 or may be purchased online at www. wagonwheelcenter.org. Masks will be required while attending this performance.

Forte Residential Inc. receives WCDC facade grant Warsaw Community Development Corporation administers a facade grant program funded by the City of Warsaw. Qualified applicants in Warsaw’s C-4 business district may obtain matching grant funds for façades, storefronts, awnings, and signs, depending on the scope of the work. The purpose of the façade grant program is to stimulate efforts to improve the street appearance of downtown Warsaw’s commercial and business facades. Forte Residential Inc. recently received one of WCDC’s 2021 facade grants. It made improve-

ments to the outside of the building, located at 120 S. Lake St., Warsaw. Improvements include removing the tattered carpet to reveal the existing granite stone steps and entryway, as well as polishing the brass front entry door. WCDC Executive Director Rob Parker said, “Investing in businesses and buildings in downtown Warsaw is the mission of WCDC.

tial, and encouraging additional investment in our historic buildings is beneficial for the owner, business, and the community. This is another example of a winwin relationship.”

The façade grant program offers up to $5,000 in matching funds, per applicant, per grant cycle, which may be under one or more grant applications. All grants awarded require match-

Kosciusko Commissioners support court-related grant applications %\ /($+ 6$1'(5 6WDII :ULWHU Kosciusko County Commissioners kicked off 2022 by approving plans for county officials to apply for two legal grants. The commissioners approved the requests from Kosciusko County Superior Court 1 Judge Karin McGrath and Prosecutor Dan Hampton at their meeting Tuesday, Jan. 4. McGrath asked for permission to apply for a Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative grant for the county. The program gives officials other options than just detaining youths who have committed crimes. “This is the only juvenile funding we have in the county for programs that keep our youth out of detention facilities,” she said. “It’s been enormously successful. They coordinate … a lot, probably 20 different activities that help enforce positive things for our kids instead of detention.” It would be the fifth year for the program in the county if the grant is received. Hampton inquired about reap-

plying for the senior hub grant for another year. “As you recall, the senior hub grant deals with the service that the local prosecutor’s office is providing for the state of Indiana allowing a case worker service for the senior prosecutors for those child support cases that have conflicts through the northern part of Indiana,” he said. In other business, the commis-

sioners approved an agreement with Ransbottom Excavating to do site work for the county’s public safety communications project. “They’re hoping to get started here actually later this week,” said Commissioner Cary Groninger. The commissioners next meeting is 9 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 18, at the Kosciusko County Courthouse’s old courtroom.

County redevelopment commission considers hiring own attorney %\ /($+ 6$1'(5 6WDII :ULWHU Kosciusko County Redevelopment Commission is considering hiring its own attorney. That topic came up at its first meeting of 2022, Monday, Jan. 3. Commission member Joni Truex made the suggestion partially based on Michelle Puckett finishing her last year as county auditor. Truex said the commission relied on her expertise related to more complex issues like tax increment financing districts. “I think it might be good for the redevelopment commission to consider retaining an attorney for the purpose of redevelopment commission questions,” said Truex. “We have Baker Tilly as a fantastic resource, but I believe that there are local attorneys

who are versed in TIF districts, versed in the lines of who is supposed to be approached for what that could help steer us and keep us in our lane.” When asked, Truex said she did have a specific attorney she would suggest for the position. He’s one who has experience related to the redevelopment commission, she said. Other commission members agreed to have Truex approach the attorney to see if he would take on the role. In other business, the commission reorganized for 2022. Truex will serve as president, Jan Orban will be vice president and Doug Hanes will serve as secretary. The commission’s next meeting is 1:30 p.m. Thursday, March 10, in the Kosciusko County Courthouse’s old courtroom.

Grace College president retires early, interim president named Grace College President Dr. Bill Katip announced his retirement to the staff of Grace College and Seminary in mid-December. Katip wrote the following in a note to campus: “In September 2021, I announced my plan to retire in June 2022. Less than a month later, I had a stroke. I am making great progress physically, but at the recommendation of my doctors, I announce my retirement as president as of Dec. 16.” Katip will continue in the role of senior advisor through the upcoming presidential transition and the 2022-23 school year. Katip’s tenure has been marked by several groundbreaking initiatives, including an accelerated threeyear bachelor’s degree program, a four-year bachelor’s and master’s program, and Deploy, Grace’s competency-based seminary program. As a result of these initiatives, and many more, Katip has led the school through some historic milestones, including Aspire, its $40 million comprehensive campaign and recruiting the school’s largestever incoming class of students for the 2021-22 school year. “On behalf of the board of trustees, let me express how fortunate we are for Dr. Katip’s collaborative leadership over the years,” said Daniel Renner, chair of the Grace College and Seminary Board of Trustees. “We are praying for his full recovery, and we are thankful he will be involved in the role of senior advisor.” Grace College and Seminary Board of Trustees appointed Dr. John Teevan to serve as interim president, as of Jan. 1. Teevan has taught a variety of courses at Grace since 2000. His life of ministry has included two senior pastorates at the Grace Brethren Church in Ashland, Ohio,

and Winona Lake Grace Brethren Church. He also spent 12 years working for Grace College in the Indiana State Prison system as an educator and director. Teevan has a Doctorate of Ministry and a Master’s of Divinity from Grace Theological Seminary. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics from Princeton University. “We are thankful John is willing to step into this interim role during this critical leadership transition,” said Renner. “John’s understanding of the Grace culture provides the stable leadership presence we need right now. His engagement with the Charis Fellowship of churches and involvement with the local community ensures we stay connected to vital partners.” “I am honored to serve my alma mater for this interim period,” said Teevan. “Bill Katip is a friend and has been a wonderful president for Grace. I have had a front seat to watch his innovative and collaborative approach to education, and it has truly been remarkable. We both love Grace and following him is an honor.” “I am very supportive of the decision to name John as interim,” Katip stated. “I’ve gotten to know John as a friend and colleague over the years, and he has my complete confidence and support.” The Grace trustees initiated a national search for the next president earlier this fall through CarterBaldwin Executive Search. The search is on schedule with an expected presidential announcement before the end of the 2021-22 school year. Katip’s initial retirement announcement can be found at www. grace.edu/grace-college-seminarypresident-dr-bill-katip-announcesretirement.

Ken Locke appointed to the Oakwood Cemetery Board %\ /$6&$ 5$1'(/6 6WDII :ULWHU The Oakwood Cemetery Board of Regents has a new face. Ken Locke, Warsaw Salvation Army envoy, was sworn in as a new member at the board’s meeting Jan. 6. Locke replaces Chris Plack, who served on the board during 2020 and 2021. Arthur Brown, who has served as board president since 2018, was also sworn in to serve another term. Warsaw Mayor Joe Thallemer administered the oaths of office. A vote to determine who will serve as board president and secretary of the board for the new year was delayed because board member Max Mock was not in attendance. Brown said he does not feel he has the time to put into continuing on as president, but said he wants to remain on the board. A vote on who will serve as president is now expected next month. In another matter, the fate of the Preacher’s Stand at the cemetery is still up in the air. The Preacher’s Stand is an open structure with

auditorium-style seating located behind the cemetery office. Despite the board voting in December to have the stand removed, some public opposition has arisen and officials are now reviewing the matter. Oakwood Cemetery Sexton Hal Heagy told board members last year he either needs to put money into the structure or it needs to be taken down. A new roof was put on the building in recent years and more maintenance will be needed in the future. At the December meeting, Heagy said the estimated cost associated with maintenance of the Preacher’s Stand could be $6,000, though he clarified that was a high estimate since he can do some of the work himself. Upon hearing the $6,000 figure, Plack motioned to remove the preacher’s stand and the motion was approved. At the meeting, Heagy said Thallemer received calls regarding removal of the structure. In addition, there was a negative response

regarding the decision on social media and local businessman and chamber member Scott Clay started a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for repairs. In that effort, three people have contributed $95, according to the website. Heagy was asked to attend the Warsaw City Council meeting last month. It was requested the decision be reassessed once an actual cost estimate has been determined. Heagy said he was not prepared to provide the estimate at that time. A motion was passed at the Jan. 6 meeting to reconsider the matter and table it for the time being, to be addressed again at a later date, once Heagy has a firm estimate. In other news: • Split wood is available at no cost at the cemetery with a voucher from Combined Community Services. • A new security system will be installed around the outside of the shop area on the cemetery grounds. The next regular meeting will be 5 p.m. Feb. 3.

Parkview Warsaw Center for Healthy Living offers ‘Check-Up Day’ Jan. 19 The Parkview Warsaw Center for Healthy Living will offer a “CheckUp Day” from 7-9:30 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 19. Participants can take advantage of reduced-cost lab testing. Changes have been made to test packages and pricing for 2022. Fasting is not required for these single tests: glycohemoglobin A1C ($30) and thyroid stimulating hormone, known as TSH ($35). Wellness packages have been simplified from the past. Instead of packages A, B, C and D, participants can now choose from the customizable green package and the deluxe diamond package. The green package includes a lipid profile and glycohemoglobin A1C for $50. In addition, participants can opt to add any of these tests onto the green package: comprehensive metabolic profile (CMP), $25; complete blood count (CBC), $15; thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), $30; prostate specific antigen (PSA, for men), $30; and vitamin D, $40.

The diamond package consists of the basic green package PLUS the CMP, CBC, TSH and PSA for a total cost of $115. Those who wish to purchase a diamond package without the PSA, may do so for $100. The vitamin D test can be added to either diamond package for a fee of $40. Anyone selecting a wellness package must fast for 10 to 12 hours before their appointment. During fasting, sips of water and regular medications as prescribed are okay. Questions may be directed to (260) 266-6500. This is an appointment-only event; walk-ins cannot be accepted. Participants must pre-register by calling (260) 266-6500. Callers should leave a message including their name and phone number if a Parkview Center for Healthy Living team member is not available at the time of the call. The center’s office hours are from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. Payment by credit card at the time of pre-registration is required. For the safety of guests and staff, precautions will be taken to guard against the spread of COVID-19. In accordance with Parkview policy, masks must be worn over mouth and nose at all times. Testing information can also be found in the Parkview Center for Healthy Living section at www. parkview.com under “classes and events.” The Parkview Warsaw Center for Healthy Living is located inside the Parkview Warsaw YMCA, 1305 Mariners Drive, Warsaw.

Salvation Army reaches Creighton family challenge The Salvation Army raised monies to reach the Creighton family challenge during bell ringing Dec. 11 and 18. The challenge was to match $10,000 and the kettles collected $10,803.23. The is the second annual Creighton Family Challenge that helps to serve others not

only at Christmas, but throughout the year in Kosciusko County. Businesses and individuals also collected 143 hams to meet the “hundred ham” challenge for the choice pantry. This was the seventh annual event to collect hams to give to individuals and families in need along with oth-

er food and hygiene items. “The Salvation Army is grateful to the Creighton family for their support,” noted Envoy Ken Locke, Salvation Army administrator. “We also appreciate everyone who brought in hams to give to others in our choice pantry.”
