same mission, 7H[W DQG 3KRWRV %\ &$/(,*+ %<5(5 6WDII :ULWHU It is a common misconception that food banks and pantries are the same; they do have similar goals, but they are far from identical. Food banks and pantries serve the same cause; they want to provide aid for anyone in their area who is struggling with food insecurity. However, banks and pantries differ in the way they provide such help. Food banks, comparable to a warehouse-type storage facility, are responsible for acquiring, storing and distributing food items to food pantries. Pantries, on the other hand, are responsible for the communication and small-scale distribution aspect. Pantries are where private individuals can go to get the food items they need. Banks have significantly larger amounts of food, typically in containers that can hold mass amounts of food or kept boxed-up for safe storage and transport. The banks are often supplied by grocery stores; they receive excess or near-expiration ffood items. They also purch purchase and redistribute fo food items to the pantr tries. Food pantries ha have community co-

different operation

about making sure the community knows that banks and pantries are not the same. “We do get a lot of people who come here who think we operate like a pantry,” Doege stated, “but unfortunately we can’t open the doors to the community or they will have to stay open.” Despite food banks wanting to solve the same issues as food pantries, they are unable to operate as a food pantry does. That means any individual who is seeking assistance will most likely not be able to get it from a food bank. Doege would like the community to know the difference between food banks and pantries so everyone in need will be aware of where )22' 3$175< ³ 7KH (WQD *UHHQ )RRG 3DQWU\ LV RQH they can go to get RI WKH QHZHU .RVFLXVNR &RXQW\ IRRG SDQWULHV RSHQ DQG the assistance they DYDLODEOH WR WKH FRPPXQLW\ 7KH IUHH SDQWU\ LV RSHQ need.

feel like a whole new person. They wanted to make a product that made this all possible with easy application and simple instructions. While most of their business has been online, they have recently started opening up pop-ups in several different towns from time to time. Chow set up all the online things since she has become big into the tech world and has worked with big companies such as eBay and VMware. She knows her way around and has put all of her knowledge from working with these companies into building websites for them and for the pop-ups that they’ve had. While they love working from home on their website, they love the experiences they’ve had from doing pop-ups. Being able to meet all their customers face to face and seeing their faces light up, knowing their products are putting smiles on people’s faces is definitely their favorite part. Being able to get their name out in the world and getting to meet other small businesses was nice, as is sharing tips and experiences with one another. Although making their own business and making money from it has been great, what the duo benefits most from this is being

able to do it together. Like any mother-daughter they often bump heads from time to time, but Jimenez said, “I couldn’t ask for anyone better to work with, even though we don’t always get along, we have the same interests and it’s a great way to strengthen our bond.” In the future they hope to move back to California to seek out bigger and better opportunities and expand their business to its

full potential. Here they can more easily get their name out in the industry and have easier ways of reaching bigger companies where they can sell their products, such as Ulta and Sephora. They have a goal in mind and know they can reach it if they set their minds to it. They need each other to reach all the goals they want to and together they have no limit to how far their business can blossom.

Members of the Wheels on Fire team served up coffee, milk and orange juice and refilled plates to those eating to be sure no one left hungry. Before the morning was over, the firemen prepared three cases of pancake mix and four cases of sausage links. The Cancer Crusaders guesstimated they served approximately 150 people on Saturday. The event proved to be a success, raising close to $3,200 to help those in need. The Wheels on Fire Cancer

New questions

Editor’s Note: The Good Neighbors column is for people looking for hard-to-find or old items or for people seeking advice, not for items you can find in a local store or sell through the help of a classified ad. The Elkhart County Humane Society suggests those “Good Neighbors” asking for good homes for free pets take some time interviewing those who show interest. The humane society recommends those attempting to re-home a pet have a conversation with any perspective new owner about the responsibilities of having a pet and ask about who lives in the home, what the pet’s daily routine will be and if the perspective new owner has veterinary care lined up for their new family member. —o—

K21 Health Foundation awards $55K grant to Pleasant View Bible Church for new playground The K21 Health Foundation recently announced it awarded a grant of $55,000 to Pleasant View Bible Church in Warsaw to assist with the startup costs for itsregistered childcare ministry opening at the end of August 2022. The grant will support a new, outdoor fencedin playground, resourcing the day care program and providing Kosciusko County with additional activity space. The day care serves children from infancy through 5 years old,

with a capacity for 84 children at any given time. The playground will facilitate the children’s recreation in a fun and safe environment, motivating an active lifestyle Monday through Friday year-round. Kosciusko County has been deemed a child care desert by the Early Learning Advisory Committee, the Governor’s task force on early learning. A recent report noted a shortage of about 1,700 child care seats in the county, which accounts for only one child care seat

Lake City Lions Club to hold annual fall craft show Oct. 1 The Lake City Lions Club of Warsaw’s Annual Fall Craft Show will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1. The event will be at the Home and Family Arts Building at the Kosciusko County Fairgrounds. Local crafters will be offering homemade crafts, holiday decorations, baby gift items, dip mixes, wood items and many more

unique gifts. All vendors will be indoors, and admission is free to the event. The Lions will have a lunch counter with proceeds going to local projects, and the Lions recycling program will be accepting old eyeglasses and hearing aids. Space is still available. Those who are interested should leave a message at (260) 615-1138.

First Baptist Church to offer movie First Baptist Church of Pierceton invites the public to a free showing of “Do You Believe?” at 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 25. From the makers of “God’s Not Dead,” “Do You Believe?” is pro-

jected to be a powerful movie that will impact the viewer’s life. First Baptist Church is located at 208 W. Market St., Pierceton. For more information, call (574) 594-2197.

for every three children who need care. This limits the workforce of Kosciusko County and hinders the ability of local employers to attract and retain talent. Pleasant View Bible Church is committed to bridging that gap and already offers opportunities for active play and skillbuilding with its annual T-ball ministry, which currently serves more than 100 children. The nearest playground is 3 miles from the church, meaning the new playground will meet the needs of many more local families. “We’re very thankful for our partnership with K21 and our shared desire to help the kids and families in our community thrive,” said Mike Hontz, senior pastor. “In addition to day care attendees, this playground can be used by the siblings of our T-ball ministry family participants. It is also open to our surrounding community whenever the day care facility is not open for business.”

FALL FARMING Yields are steady but costs are up for area farmers %\ .(,7+ .1(33 6WDII :ULWHU Bob Bishop has planted and harvested his share of crops in Kosciusko County. This year, the Leesburg area farmer is working his 50th growing season, farming somewhere between 4,000-5,000 acres between Leesburg and the north side of Warsaw, including corn, soybeans and wheat. “The harvest is coming along nicely,” he said in an interview last week. “Seed corn has already started. The yield is along the trendline. We’ve had a decent amount of moisture the last part of the season, which has been beneficial.” The problem for Bishop and his fellow farmers during the past two years, however, has been the skyrocketing costs of input, or how much it costs to get to crops

planted. For example, Bishop said the cost of nitrogen this year was three times that of past years. He added that he expects next year’s nitrogen costs to increase by $50$60 per ton. “But it’s not just nitrogen,” he added. “It’s herbicide, insecticide, the cost of seeds for beans and corn, too.” Add to those increases the price of diesel fuel to run the tractors, combines and semi trucks to get the harvest to storage or market, and the amount of money that actually makes it to the bank is most certainly less than in past years. Bishop agreed, saying the market prices certainly haven’t completely reflected the increased costs being incurred by the farmers to plant, tend and harvest their crops, damaging their overall bottom lines. There was a great deal of con-

cern last winter that farmers would have a difficult time finding products to even purchase at any price, including seeds and other necessary materials. Bishop said the disruption in the supply chains fortunately never really materialized, at least not locally. Bishop noted the overall weather this season has benefited farmers more this year than last. He pointed out last year, white mold in soybeans was more prevalent because of soggy fields, which kills the beans and hurts the overall yield. He also said last year’s corn harvest was devastated by tar spot. The fungus resulted in around a 50% decrease in the 2021 harvest. Bishop said this year doesn’t seem to be as bad, noting that scouting indicates it shouldn’t be a major problem come har-

FALL FARMING Long honored to be a ‘River Friendly Farmer’ %\ .(,7+ .1(33 6WDII :ULWHU For the past 22 years, Hoosier conservation and agricultural organizations have sponsored the River Friendly Farmer Program. Sponsored by Indiana Farm Bureau, the statewide initiative recognizes farmers, who through good production management practices help keep Indiana’s rivers, lakes and streams clean. Kosciusko County’s Mike Long was one of 47 farmers who joined that noteworthy list of Hoosier farmers during a ceremony held Aug. 18, 2021, at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, at which they were recognized for their ‘river friendly’ efforts. In February of this year, Long was honored locally for the award during the 65th annual Kosciusko County Soil and Water Conservation District meeting. Every year since 2000, each of Indiana’s county soil and water conservation districts has nominated up to two farmers who do an outstanding job of protecting their rivers, lakes and streams through everyday conservation management practices on their farm. Watershed organizations also can nominate farmers for the award by submitting an application to a county SWCD. Since the award’s inception, more than 1,100 farmers from around the state have received the honor. The River Friendly Farmer Award is based on nine criteria that rate a farmer’s conservation practices, including erosion con-

trol and nutrient and pest management. Long was nominated by Kosciusko County SWCD for his use of no-till, cover crops, water control structures, buffer and filter strips and a two-stage ditch in his operation. A first-generation farmer, Long sold his tillage equipment and began implementing conservation practices on his farm 30 years ago. “I didn’t want to be tempted to go back, and since then the farm has continued to get better year after year,” he said, adding his work with Notre Dame has shown that no-till and cover crops can reduce soil nutrient loss. “Since then, we have years and years of soil and water quality testing and we found out that

what we’re doing is better,” Long said. “I’m not going to say we have all the answers, because I’m now 60 years old and the older I get the more I realize I have to unlearn just as much as I learn every year. I was taught by one of my former employers who became a landlord to always leave things better than you found them and that’s the Continued on page 9

Lortie turns love of goats into an FFA Supervised Agricultural Experience %\ /$85(1 =(8*1(5 (GLWRU Keira Lortie started her 4-H experience showing beef cattle. During her second year in 4-H, she was wandering around the fairgrounds when she noticed the goats. Thinking they were interesting, she started showing goats along with beef cattle. “It’s a good starter project for younger kids to have smaller goats in 4-H,” she said. Now a sophomore in high school, the Syracuse resident is turning her experience with goats into a Supervised Agricultural Experience through FFA. An SAE is where kids in FFA learn how to grow a business, make money and manage their time. Lortie’s SAE is to double her goat herd from six to 12. She hopes to do this before she ages out of 4-H in two years. Lortie raises Boer goats, which are meat goats. She figured since she was raising beef cattle for meat, it made sense to raise meat goats. She chose Boer goats because she thought they were cute. Pygmy goats and male milk goat breeds are also used for meat. Goat is a popular meat source in Indian, Mexican and Caribbean cuisine and is growing in popularity in the United States, especially in bigger cities. Currently Lortie has two does she’s breeding. One will kid in December and she is hoping it will have two kids. The other doe will be bred soon and kid in February. Goats are usually bred so their kids are born in the winter, allowing the kid to be the right size for showing in the spring and summer. The ideal size for showing: for bucks and market does, 60-80 pounds; for commercial does, 90100 pounds; breeding does, 100150 pounds or even pushing 200 pounds. Lortie explained the difference between a market goat and a commercial goat: While both are used for meat, the commercial goat is more feminine looking. Market goats are ready for slaughter at 7-8 months of age. Lortie said an ideal market goat “has a square build, good muscle tone, but not super fat.” Lortie doesn’t have any bucks, since they’re more work and can be temperamental. They are also larger and harder to manage. “They also smell really bad,” she said. Her family also doesn’t have the barn space for a buck. When it comes to caring for her

Long Continued from page 7 philosophy we went with.” Long, who also serves as a member of the Kosciusko County Council, grows seed corn, commercial corn, seed soybeans, commercial soybeans, wheat and rye on his acreage. He said he appreciated being recognized with the prestigious award and said it is proudly displayed in his home.

goats, Lortie feeds and waters them in the morning, then in the afternoon. If the weather is nice, the goats are turned out to pasture; if the weather isn’t great, they are run around the house a few times and then put on a treadmill for 30 minutes. She also braces them, which makes them flex their muscles to build up muscle tone. Lortie is currently getting ready to show one of her goats in a national show in November. National shows bring much more competition. Not only is she competing against animals from around the country, but also different characteristics. For example, Indiana judges prefer goats to have good muscle tone, be stout and have pounds of product. Different states have different lineages of goats that may be lighter boned or have more or less hair.

Oneeda Farms is a Holstein farm with over 200 cows. Initially, the farm was purchased by Joe’s grandfather in 1943. Joe’s

parents were married the next year and started working on the farm. At that time, the farm had 16 cows along with some pigs and chickens. When Joe graduated high school, he joined his father. Joe asked his father if he could expand the farm. His father didn’t want to expand at that time, but gave Joe 40 acres. Joe said they expanded in 1976 and

with her family, milks an organic herd in Gravel Switch, Ky. His other daughter and her husband help every now and then with the farm. Joe said things have changed over the years. They do things much differently now. “The way the milk is handled is different and everything needs to be sanitized from the start. It’s just a whole different ball game,” he said. Joe said Roger has helped many kids with 4-H over the years. Joe was also involved in 4-H at one time. He said Roger also acquired some Jersey cows along with his Holsteins. Roger has been handling all the farming operations for the past eight years. Jeff Prough is his herdsman. Jeff is kind of a jack-of-alltrades and helps Roger with many of the day-to-day operations of the farm. His role is absolutely vital to the farming operations. Both Jeff and Joe said the economy has had an impact on the farm. Vaccine supply was disrupted at one point because the focus had shifted so much on producing COVID vaccines. As a result, Jeff said there was a two-month stretch in 2021 when they had a harder time getting the vaccines for the cows. They vaccinate the cows for everything right from the time they are born. Joe chimed in and said an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Jeff said he was told years ago that you generally need to increase

your number of cows by about 6% each year. Joe said they don’t raise all their own heifers at the farm, but contract some out. They just don’t quite have enough feed or land to raise all the heifers in one location. They sell their milk to a dairy business with co-op ownership called Foremost Farms. Roger is a board member at Foremost Farms. The co-op is located in Wisconsin. Joe pointed to a sign in the office which indicated that milk needed to be cooled to 60 degrees. He said they used to cool milk to 60 degrees when it was in 10-gallon cans. Milk now needs to be cooled to 38 degrees. The farm has a plate cooling and refrigeration unit that cools the milk when it gets pumped through the tank. The initial process does at least half the cooling. They then catch that water and use it to wash down with when they’re done. The tank then does the rest of the cooling. The temperature of the milk will usually reach 38 degrees within an hour. The farm has a parlor where they double milk the cows eight on each side with a double eight herringbone. When there is not enough milk coming from the cow, the machine will automatically stop milking. Every cow is registered and tagged for identification. This is how they keep track of their records and vaccinations, etc.

How Kosciusko County ranks in agriculture %\ /$85(1 =(8*1(5 6WDII :ULWHU Ever wonder how Kosciusko County ranks in a recent agriculture census? There are 1,042 farms in the county, with the average size being about 251 acres. Of those farms, 23% are no-till, 17% are reduced till, 16% are intensive till and 11% use cover crops. About 74 percent of the land in Kosciusko County is dedicated to farmland, which equals about 261,674 acres. Kosciusko County makes up 3% of the state agriculture sales, with 42% of sales being in crops and 58 % in livestock, poultry and products. When it comes to crops such as grains, oil seeds, dry beans and dry peas, Kosciusko County ranks 14th in the state, with all 92 counties producing the same crops. The county ranks 16th in the state for vegetables, melons, potatoes and sweet potatoes, and 33rd in the state for fruits, tree nuts and berries. The top crops grown in the county: corn for grain, 102,000 acres; soybeans for beans, 82,200 acres; forage (hay/silage), 9,024 acres; corn for silage or greenschop, 4,221 acres; and wheat for grain, 4,068 acres. When it comes to livestock, Kosciusko County is the main reason Indiana is ranked No. 1 in duck production. According to a recent U.S. Department of Agriculture report, almost 28 million ducks were processed, with 75 % of those ducks coming from Kosciusko and Elkhart County producers. In other poultry, such as broilers and meat-type chickens, Kosciusko County produced approximately 478,694. Approximately 48 turkeys were processed, while 2,001,858 pullets or young hens

were processed. Early census numbers for this year put the number of cattle and calves being raised at 20,500, the number of goats at 337 and hogs and pigs at around 147,464. Sheep and lambs numbered 1,037. The approximate market value of products sold in the county is $298,032,000. Government payments to farms in the county is approximately $8,572,000. Total farm production expenses in the county are $233,874,000 with the net cash farm income being about $81,133,000.

ness — County Farm Bees. “The art of beekeeping is something old and we don’t want to lose it,” said Fox. Fox started out eight years ago with just a couple hives. He and his father have now expanded their operation to 45 hives. His father has been beekeeping for about 15 years. He has served as a mentor to Fox and taught him the basics. Fox is now educating himself and really learning the science of beekeeping. “It’s all about passing on the information we learn to others,” he said. Fox has conducted several mentorship programs and is seeing an increasing response from people starting to call and ask questions about beekeeping. He has traveled out of state to offer his expertise, but mostly focuses on Kosciusko County and some surrounding counties. “What is honey? You have your

They’re two totally different things. People sometimes say they see stuff floating in our honey. That’s all the stuff that’s going to help you and your allergies, etc. It gets filtered out of the box store honey. We strain it through one time to eliminate bee parts and chunks of wax, but still keep some of the good ingredients. The biggest thing is the pollens that are being brought in by the different flowers — I am not a doctor, but if people are trying to take care of their seasonal allergies by filtering out the pollens, it probably won’t help as much,” he said. Fox said County Farm Bees is an all-encompassing beekeeping operation. If someone has a question, they are available for consultation. They supply equipment starting with the first box to how to prep for the winter months. He said you could have 10 beekeepers in a room all with varying ideas about how to do things.

None of them are wrong. Basically, everyone has different styles and does what’s best for them. One issue is varroa mites. Fox said varroa mites are one of the main threats to bee colonies outside of herbicides and pesticides. He said with any animal husbandry you have to have a plan in place. There are a variety of ways to control against varroa mites, though you never totally get rid of them. Fox typically prepares for the winter by packing boxes full of resources. During the fall, he watches each colony and if one needs help, he is willing to throw extra sugar water on it trying to pack each cell in with more nutrition to help produce more honey. He said most beekeepers pull off their surplus in early August when bees start getting ready for winter. He said they keep a certain amount in each colony and a certain amount of what they take from each colony. Fox also touched on the weather, saying it plays an important factor in beekeeping. He mentioned they could lose a nectar flow. If that happens bees could start eating their winter resources, so it’s important to keep the boxes as packed as possible. Feeding the bees with a little bit of surplus honey and sugar water helps keep them from eating their own resources and keep filling the boxes. He said they want them as full as possible by mid to late October so they have resources for the winter. “One of those things that you have to have is a passion for it. You have to have some time for it,” he said. County Farm Bees can be reached at (260) 823-1052, (574) 269-5824 or countyfarmbees@yahoo.com.

FALL FARMING

Shear success for Kolberg

%\ %/$,5 %$80*$571(5 6WDII :ULWHU When Doyle Kolberg was just a kid, his aunt had sheep, which piqued his interest. He started to really get more involved with sheep 22 years ago when his daughters were in 4-H. Kolberg started with three sheep and now has 50 ewes and three rams he uses for breeding. He breeds Dorset sheep. He said there is a breed of sheep that produces hair instead of wool and looks more like a goat. They shed their hair in the spring and there is no need to shear them. This particular breed is becoming more popular. There are not very many shearers out there. Fine textile grade wool currently sells for about $1.50 a pound, but the medium grade common wool only sells for 10 cents a pound, so in the case with medium grade common wool sheep, the cost associated with shearing the animal is greater than the profit made from the wool. However, the sheep still need to be sheared to keep them healthy and clean. Kolberg will dock the tails of his sheep by using a rubber band to cut off the circulation to the tail so it doesn’t grow too long and create an opportunity for flies to lay their eggs. This also prevents the animal from

acquiring urine and feces on their tail, which attracts flies. The sheep will birth a single lamb, twins and occasionally triplets. “We have to be real careful with the triplets because we might not have enough milk and often need to bottle feed them,” he said. “We make more money on two than one, but often need to keep a twin for replacement breeding since they are more likely to breed twins themselves. If you have a ewe that only births single lambs, you wouldn’t keep her,” he said. According to Kolberg, the economy goes in cycles. Sheep have recently been slightly more profitable than in years past. Many people of Middle Eastern origin and immigrants from other countries are helping to increase demand. They grew up eating lamb. The cost per pound has decreased in the past few years from about $3 to $1.80. The total number of sheep in the United States has been decreasing by about 1% to 2% to per year for the past 20 years. Kolberg said that sheep out west in places like Colorado have brought the live weight price per pound down as a result of the backlog of a greater number of lambs. “Feeder lambs are about 50 pounds and then get to between 120150 pounds for slaughter weight,” he

said. The price per lamb used to be around $300, but now sits around $180. He said more people are trying lamb and liking it. People in many countries around the world have limited land, and raising lamb is more ideal than raising cattle or other larger animals. This is part of the reason many Middle Eastern people and other people from around the

world were raised with lamb as one of their main sources of meat. “Breeding season starts in one month. The gestation period is about five months. We put the rams in next week. The ewes start giving birth around February. I keep mine on dry feed instead of in the pasture. It takes five to six months to feed the lamb and get it large enough for slaughter. June and July are typi-

cally the slaughter season,” he said. The days are getting shorter and colder. Kolberg said the sheep went out of heat during the hot summer months and are now getting back in heat. He said there are now more open-season breeds — Rambouillet sheep and Dorsets that are accelerated breeding sheep and can produce two lamb crops per year instead of just one.

Echoes of the Past Tractor Drive honored Kurt Miller The Echoes of the Past took to the country roads of Kosciusko and Fulton counties to honor Kurt Miller. Twenty-five tractors, including club and non-club members, were on hand to participate in the 20-mile tractor drive. This was the third year for the annual tractor drive. Drivers from as far away as Lucerne came to support the Millers in honoring their son along with the club. Fathers, sons and grandsons all shared navigation duties. Uncles and nephews took turns piloting tractors the 20 miles of the drive. Riders were able to ride the club tram and enjoy the sce-

nic drive through the country. Engines fired up at 9:30 a.m. and headed northwest toward Mentone, where the drivers were met by supporters waving and cheering as they navigated their way through downtown. Following a stop at Craig Welding, the drive made its way back to the starting point of Miller’s childhood home for a delicious lunch and Igloo ice cream. The drive was able to generate $1,458 for the Kurt Miller Memorial Fund. For more information on the fund, check with the Kosciusko Community Foundation. Continued on page 15

Kosciusko Leadership Academy visits Creighton Brothers HQ On Tuesday, Sept. 6, the Kosciusko Leadership Academy cadets visited Creighton Brothers headquarters where Mindy Truex, president of Creighton Brothers and Crystal Lake LLC, Emily Kresca from Purdue Extension and Janelle Deatsman from Maple Leaf Farms presented “Agri-Business in Kosciusko County.” Truex explained Creighton’s process through a video that depicted harvesting, cleaning, inspecting and packaging “shell eggs” and liquid egg products. A “live hen” video also demonstrated how the birds are fed and cared for. She discussed the farm’s overall operations and the challenges of raising livestock

and growing feed corn. Mindy also referenced the new additions to the farm — the Crazy Egg Café and The Roost, a banquet facility just adjacent to the headquarters. Creighton Brothers’ are all about creative innovation and understanding what makes healthy eggs and happy chickens. They have been in business for 97 years. Kresca gave an overview of the county’s agriculture and the economic impact of agriculture on the local economy. Kosciusko County is ranked fourth in Indiana for total agricultural products sold, and 94% of farms in Kosciusko County are family farms. Deatsman explained the histo-

ry of Maple Leaf Farms and how it has grown and the many high quality products. Maple Leaf was founded in 1958 by Donald Wentzel in Milford. The farm produces 9-12 million white Peking ducks annually. She invited the group to visit the company store at Maple Leaf’s World Headquarters in Leesburg and to try some of their ready-to-eat entrees. A wide range of down products and household goods are also available at the store. The next KLA session will be “Protecting our Water Resources in Kosciusko County” on Sept. 20, at The Lilly Center for Lakes and Streams, Grace College, Winona Lake.

Keeney, Gunkel, Darr, Wiggins honored by county firemen 7H[W DQG 3KRWRV %\ '(% 3$77(5621 (GLWRU ,Q &KLHI Shade Keeney, Harold Gunkel, Dennis Darr and Ernie Wiggins received special honors at the annual Kosciusko County Fire Association Fish Fry and Awards Night Thursday, Sept. 15. Keeney was presented the Fireman of the Year Award. Gunkel received the service award and Darr and Wiggins were recipients of the Friend of the Fireman Award for service and leadership outside of the fire service. A special Thank You Award was presented to the Roger Gelbaugh family for allowing him to serve the county fire association for numerous years. As a young man, Keeney started with the Seward Township Fire Department. Kevin McSherry, fire chief, who nominated Keeney, stated after one of his first structure fires, Keeney came back and said “Gosh chief, I like this, I think I want to do this for a living.” McSherry stated he told him the department would help him as much as they could. Keeney left Seward Township and worked with Turkey Creek Fire Territory before joining the Warsaw Wayne Fire Territory, where he is a full-time firefighter. The service award recognizes not only longevity but what is done during the time a firefighter serves. “It is a big deal to have stuck it out. Many of you have it and know,” said McSherry. Gunkel, who was nominated by the Sidney Fire Department, has served 40 years on the Tippecanoe Township Fire Territory. “He has served in many roles throughout the service and his community. His willingness to jump in and do whatever needs to be done has saved his department and community drastically, financially and physically. His experience and knowledge has been passed down to younger generation firefighters and he is always willing to teach anyone how to be better and how to get things done faster and safer for everyone,” read McSherry of the nomination. Darr and Wiggins were recognized for their contributions, efforts and support of the new fire communication system. Mickey Scott, fire chief for Turkey Creek Fire Territory, spoke of when he was approached for a location of a tower in the northern part of the county, he thought of possibilities and made phone calls. “I don’t know if we would have gotten this place secured without the help of this person,” said Scott. That tower is located on the highest point of the county. “It’s all about taking care of people,” McSherry added. Warsaw Mayor Joe Thallemer

He leads by example. He was a great mentor to me. His vast knowledge and experience made him a very respected leader. The most important thing he taught me was the value of building relationships to bring the community together to solve problems. This speaks to dedication to the community and his ability to lead. “He is truly a friend of the firemen,” said McSherry. The evening additionally included presentation of Indiana Volunteer Firefighter’s Association pins to those with over 25 years of fire service, by John Grolich, District 5 chairman. Among those who were given pins were: Atwood — Chad Heckaman Burket — Doug Mayhew, Mark Nordman Clay Township — Rick Hurley Etna Township — Paul Scott

FMSC Warsaw MobilePack is Oct. 11-14 Feed My Starving Children Warsaw MobilePack is scheduled for Oct. 11-14 at the Tiger Recreational Activity Center at Warsaw Community High School. This is the sixth FMSC event hosted by the Warsaw community. The Warsaw MobilePack steering team is in the final stages of planning and securing sponsorships and donors to pay for the ingredients that our community will pack. Many regions of the world are facing famine conditions, and starvation is on the rise. FMSC was seriously impacted by COVID, and the request for meals is greater than ever. Warsaw MobilePack is excited for the opportunity to bring this hands-on mission experience back to the community and fight world hunger once again. Lead sponsors include SYM Financial, Warsaw Community Schools, DePuy, Zimmer Biomet, Paragon Medical, Silveus Insurance, Kathy Hamman, Broker RE/MAX, First United Methodist Church, Wildman, Our House Real

Estate, Miller Cattle Company and Jasmine Gabriel Schlitt Family Dentistry, in addition to many other generous donors. The mission project will bring over 3,000 community volunteers together to fight world hunger by packing over 700,000 meals to be shipped to FMSC partners around the world. The Warsaw MobilePack event will include a total of nine packing sessions. Each session will be two hours in length. Over the four-day event, there will be five school packing sessions, which will include 1,400 Warsaw Community School students. This is a great opportunity for WCS students to live out their school mission of enriching the lives of others, both locally and globally. Public sessions will be held 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11, and 6-8 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 1213. Registration for the community events is open at warsawmobilepack.com.
