Akron native returns to create ‘Reese Lake’ %\ '$9,' +$=/(',1( 6WDII :ULWHU They say there is no place like home, and for Orville and Julie Reese of Akron, that is certainly true. After living and working in Warsaw for decades — Orville at Depuy for 26 years and Julie at Zimmer Biomet for 35 — the couple retired and in 2015 purchased 11.9 acres on CR 225N outside Akron, near where Orville grew up. They have since invested both money and sweat equity into transforming the previously untamed acreage into a bucolic getaway complete with a large, stocked, spring-fed pond, beach and two fully-functioning cabins, all of which they share with friends, family and others who adhere to a simple set of rules, the most important being “no lying and stealing.” Other rules include, “clean up your mess and call ahead.” “It’s real simple,” Orville observed, “and we’ve never had an issue.” (Just in case, he has also invested in substantial liability insurance.) “Reese Lake” has also been the site of nine baptisms, which took

place during an Athens Community Church cookout. For a time, the Reeses also hosted a regular Wednesday young adult Bible study, as well as youth revivals and there have also been two marriages. “God owns this property,” Orville emphasized, “and we do the best we can to share it with other people.” The Reeses good fortune is also the result of years of hard work, which did not end with the purchase of the property. It had been uninhabited for nearly four years, and their current home and “lake” were literally carved out of the landscape. Four years ago, Kirk Ingram of Winamac was hired to dig out the existing pond. He told Orville, “You’ll hate me before this is done.” Nevertheless, Reese hired on to help do work few can put up with for long. “We became good friends over this.” Over the course of three months the two-acre pond was drained and then dug down to 14 feet. Orville described the slimy mixture of grass, mud and weeds as “snot” and around 150 truck loads of it were hauled away. At one point, the

pile was so high the Reeses could not see the road from their house. Meanwhile, Orville worked in the “snot,” moving mats used to keep the cranes stabilized. Everyday, he remembered, cars would park along the road and watch. Eventually, a creek developed as the springs began to fill the cavity. Then spring rains did the rest. “It filled right away.”

The pond is stocked with largemouth bass and Georgia Giant Bluegill, which grow to 4-5 pounds. However, fishing is generally restricted to senior citizens due to the fact the bluegills don’t survive catch-and-release due to their fighting spirit. Forty-four tons of sand were brought in for the lake, which has Continued on page 3

“At the beginning of this past school year, I wasn’t sure whether I’d like Entrepreneurship class,” stated Carissa Slone, an upcoming senior at Tippecanoe Valley High School. “I’d never taken a business class before. But I loved it. Mr. Engbrecht makes the class very enjoyable by giving us projects that we can put our own

creativity into. And I do very well with that. The class has taught me so much about businesses.” Slone was part of a group of three classmates in Mr. E’s Entrepreneurship class who took first place in the Fedco First Pitch competition this past year. “We came up with our idea of a revised medical boot because one of our team members, Brittany Benn, had an accident last fall that broke her leg.

issues with her medical boot that caused added injury. So, we came up with a revised boot that would be more comfortable.” Their product, Reboot, is a medical boot with three interchangeable soles, a locking system and breathable fabric. “It’s an advanced medical boot that is more comfortable than the original and allows for less injury than is caused by the traditional boot.” The team won $500 for their new product idea. “I feel great about being on the winning team. We were very proud of ourselves and felt it was a great accomplishment. I had never heard of First Pitch before my class with Mr. Engbrecht, but I am so happy I got to be part of the competition. We split the money three ways, and each got $165. I am saving my money.” This fall she will be a senior at TVHS. Slone has her eyes open towards her future. “I am looking forward to going to college. I’m leaning towards Ivy Tech or Indiana University, Fort Wayne.” She is very interested in pursuing a career in medical imaging. “I’ve always wanted to work in the medical industry. Radiology really interests me, and medical imaging is part of that. Being able to help people has always been a dream of mine. I feel medical imaging puts me in a position to help people and I like that.” Slone is a member of the National Honor Society. “We do a lot of community service in NHS. It’s a great group to be part of. I’m also a member of Student Council. It’s fun to help out with several things for our school and

When Orville was around 8-years-old, he remembers sitting in an old, unused Super C International Harvester tractor. “I would think I was farming all the time, but it never moved.” They move now. Orville has found a second career fully restoring IH tractors with the help of family members, including his cousin, Larry Reese, who helps locate the tractors. Reese Lake was recently visited by folks from California who made the trip just to purchase two tractors, which Reese sells at around $2,500-$3,000, a good price considering he buys the rusted-out hulks and the amount of work he puts in to bring them back to life, including a bright-red paint job. This year he restored 16 tractors. Julie is a city girl who lived most of her life near Muncie and in War-

OBITUARIES Walt Scobie Sr. U.S. Coast Guardsman

Walt Scobie Sr., 82, Rochester, passed away at 3:04 a.m. Tuesday, June 21, 2022, at Memorial Hospital of South Bend. On June 29, 1939, Walter Edward Scobie was born in Kokomo to Eldon Everett and Phyllis Lilly Scobie. Growing up, he shared his childhood in Pure, Mich., with a sister, Donna, and two brothers, Everett and :$/7 John. Walt graduated from Royal Oak Dondero High 6&2%,( 65 School, Royal Oak, Mich., with the class of 1958. Answering the call of patriotism, Walt joined the United States Coast Guard in 1958. He was stationed at the Stannard Rock Lighthouse, 47 miles off the shore of Station Marquette, Mich. Walt was among three survivors of the tragic explosion and fire of the lighthouse he and three other coastguardsman maintained and shared as their duty home. Walt and three generations of his family returned to the storied lighthouse on a memorable trip back in June 2015. He was honorably discharged in 1962. Walt and Sharon Lee Eisler were married Jan. 1, 1959, in Troy, Mich. They have shared 63 years of life’s adventures. From their union came two daughters and a son. The blessings of two more generations have been added to the family tree. With a new appointment to assume the management of Fulton Industries, Walt, Sharon and the kids moved to Rochester. As their kids grew up, the Scobies’ north shore Lake Manitou home was the gathering hub. With a great passion for the water and skiing, this was the perfect place for their family. Walt was always amidst the action pulling the kids water skiing or pontooning, cruising on the sparkling waters and watching the sunset with Sharon. Wintertime brought on ice skating and snowmobiling. Walt made certain everything was running smoothly. After retirement, he specialized in customer service at Enyart’s True Value. He is remembered for his hearty laugh, keen knowledge on methods of repair and uncanny memory of where everything was in the store. Walt always greeted his customers with a warm smile and helping heart. A great attribute was Walt’s kindness and his love for being with and talking to people. He never knew a stranger. He had the gift of gab and was a life learner. Walt often assisted family, friends and neighbors with repairs. His memberships include the Moose Lodge #1107 and Elks Lodge #2120, both of Rochester. Left to cherish Walt’s memory are his wife, Sharon; three children, Laura S. “Lori” (Jack) Riggs, Tamora A. “Tammy” (Amado) Mejia and Walter E. “Todd” (Wendy Marie) Scobie; nine grandchildren, Emily Mae (Matthew) Alcini, Ryan Scott (Amber) Riggs, Megan Ann Howard, Katie Lee Howard, Emma Elizabeth Howard, Zackery Lucas Scobie, Chad Hayden (Kellie) Scobie, Sidneigh Marie Scobie and Wesley Eldon Scobie; nine great-grandchildren, Aubrey Alcini, Alyson Alcini, Autumn Alcini, Greyson Rhodes, Hugo Howard, Micah Howard, Luci Ryan Scobie, Amelia Marie Scobie and Watson Todd Scobie; three siblings, Donna (Bill) Ackerman, Everett Eldon Scobie and John Scott (Cathy) Scobie; and several nieces and nephews. A celebration of the life of Walter Edward Scobie was held at 3 p.m. Friday, June 24, at Good Family Funeral Home, 1200 W. 18th St., Rochester. Pastor Terry Baldwin officiated. Friends visited with the family from noon to 3 p.m. Friday at the funeral home. Military honors were accorded by the Fulton County Veteran’s Honor Guard and the United States Coast Guard Honors Team. Memorials, in lieu of flowers, may be made to the Lake Manitou Association, P.O. Box 376, Rochester, IN 46975. Electronic expressions of sympathy may be made to his family at goodfamilyfh.com.

Odell announces candidacy for mayor Editor’s Note: Article provided by Trent Odell. Trent Odell is a Republican running for mayor of Rochester in 2023. The following is an introduction, to tell voters about who Odell is, why he is running, the journey which brought him to his decision and the qualifications that make him suitable for the office. Odell and his wife Stacy have been married for 36 years. They have two daughters, Brittanie and Alyssa, and five grandchildren. “I have been a lifelong grain and livestock farmer in northwest Howard County, and in 2012, my wife and I were blessed to buy a cottage on the east side of Lake Manitou. We have since fallen in love with the community, became residents and in 2019, purchased what was formerly known as Fansler Lumber Company. We changed the name to Odell Lumber and Supply as we felt it was necessary to rebrand and portray a new direction for the company, though, we ensured to keep the values that made this company what it has been in the community for many years before we entered the scene. Quickly, I became aware of how much I enjoyed working with the people of this community.” A couple years ago, Odell began considering running for mayor of the community he now called home, but he did not share the idea with anyone except his wife and a close confidant; however, several life changes, including the purchase of the lumberyard, had his mind otherwise occupied. So, he was all the more shocked when he was randomly approached by a community member about running for mayor of Rochester. “Maybe this was my confirmation that it was time to take the next step.” Odell embarked on a “research time,” during which he talked to additional community members. “I have received such great support and positive affirmation that running for mayor is the right next step for me. In addition, other circumstances have opened to allow me to be fully committed to the role of mayor.” Odell has held many leadership roles in the past. These have

He also coached varsity boys’ basketball for a small Christian School in Kokomo from 2002-2006 and led men’s weekend retreats. “My style and my heart are to serve. I want to help the people of Rochester be the best they can be. My strength is open communication and spending more time listening than speaking. I want to hear what each of you has to say. Your voice is as important as anyone else’s, and I will make available to constituents opportunities to share their ideas and opinions. I desire to be a mayor who recognizes people’s passion for their community and does everything in my power to encourage and enable them to be successful in their role.” “I’m a grace giver, but I also believe in accountability. I believe a vision of unity needs to be cast across party lines as well as city and county governments. We must all work together for the benefit of this community. It is essential to ensure we create a better future for the next generation. It would be my honor to work with anyone who places the community first and foremost.” Anyone who wishes to reach out to Odell may do so at trentodell@yahoo.com, and he will respond as soon as he is able.

Akron Fourth of July Festival celebrates ‘Mayberry USA’ theme %\ '$9,' +$=/(',1( 6WDII :ULWHU The 2022 Akron Fourth of July Festival is a celebration of small town living spanning four days and featuring a myriad of activities for young and old. The long weekend is filled with sports tournaments, pageants for all ages, a car show, concerts, food and retail vendors and more. And it all ends with a bang, a fireworks show in Pike Memorial Park, but not before the community’s many facets come together in this year’s parade, with its theme, “Mayberry-USA.” According to organizers, the theme is meant to allow people to “stroll down memory lane honoring and reminiscing about the good old days as portrayed in the iconic town in ‘The Andy Griffith Show’ and as we experienced in Akron.” Much of the month of June has been spent in preparations and meeting registration deadlines, particularly for the Penny-AVote Cute Baby Contest, Miss Sparkler/Mr. Firecracker and

Queen contests. The winners of these events will be announced starting at 6:15 p.m. Friday, July 1, in the Akron Community Center. Attendees may also take part in the Akron Parents Support Group’s Igloo Ice Cream Social from 6-8 p.m. in the community center. Also starting July 1 is the Akron Youth League’s 12-under Baseball and Softball Tournament, which runs through Sunday, July 3. Book lovers should also take advantage of Akron Carnegie Public Library’s Book Sale, which is open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday, July 1, and 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, July 2. Most items for sale can be had for a donation. From 9-11 a.m. Saturday, July 2, Lake City Bank, 114 W. Rochester St., is also celebrating Young Entrepreneur Day. Those who stop by the branch may purchase products from kids ages 5-11, who also receive $10 grants from the bank. The festival atmosphere kicks into high gear from noon to 8 p.m. in Pike Memorial Park, 311

From the City Projects Room —

Waste Treatment System Upgrade %\ 7(' '(1721 0D\RU RI 5RFKHVWHU Today I would like to update everyone on project number one from the City Projects Room. It is the upgrade to the Waste Treatment System 0$<25 7(' located on '(1721 Monticello Road. This is where the waste from the city is received, processed and disposed of. The department head of the Waste Treatment Plant is Marcus Halterman. Back in May 2021, the year-and-a-half project started with the engineering evaluation, design and financial estimate of what the project would cost. Next, the financial backing was obtained by negotiating with the State Revolving Fund Loans Department, which loans monies to cities for worthy projects. We were successful in negotiating a 1.5% twenty-year loan for $7.5 million dollars to fund the project. We negotiated the loan down from 3% (the going rate at the time) to the 1.5%, saving millions. After the contract was bid and awarded to Crosby Construction, the project was divided into nine pieces with very specific items in each group needed to complete the total upgrade. These pieces were numbered one through nine and placed on a Gannt chart. A Gannt chart is a working document that allows all involved to see the progress of each task laid out on a

His performances are unique experiences, each tailored to audience involvement and requests. He has performed with a long list of show business legends, including John Denver, The Byrds, The Turtles, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Johnny Rivers, Tammy Wynette, Foreigner, Richard Lewis, The Temptations and many more.

He recently concluded a run at Chicago’s Greenhouse Theater, “Human Jukebox Reloaded”.

Bucher honored posthumously as Akron parade grand marshal %\ /($+ 6$1'(5 6WDII :ULWHU Jim Bucher was a familiar face around Akron. Two of his children, Amy Cooper and Jeff Bucher, shared how Jim would travel around town on his blue golf cart greeting other people. Though Jim passed away in February at age 85, his hometown will honor him on Monday, July 4, when he will posthumously serve as the grand marshal of the Akron Fourth of July parade. It’s actually one of two recognitions that Jim will receive as part of this year’s festival, the other being having his name attached to the Fourth’s car show that he helped organize for many years. Bucher spent nearly all his lifetime in the Akron area, save for some time he lived in California. Born on Aug. 14, 1936, he went to Beaver Dam High School. He married the late E. “Joan” Floor on Sept. 23, 1956. They would have five children, including in addition to Amy and Jeff, Joy McDonough, Jerry Bucher and Jim Bucher Jr. Jim and Joan would raise the kids at a home at Rock Lake, just outside Akron. There, Jeff notes, the family had a three-car garage, but it wasn’t to store their personal cars in. “Dad always believed a garage was for race cars or fixing cars and tools, not to have family cars

Cars were a passion of Jim’s, both for work and for play. By trade, he was a mechanic, with part of his career spent working for Shepherd’s Chevrolet of North Manchester. Being a skilled mechanic, Jim’s advice was often sought away from his places of employment. His children remember people contacting him with various car issues. His passion was also expressed at the racetrack. Jim would race late model stock cars at Kokomo, Warsaw and Avilla, so much so that his family notes that the kids grew up, in a sense, at a racetrack. Jim always raced a No. 2 car, said Jeff.

Jim would be named manager of the Warsaw Motor Speedway for a time, beginning in 1978. Later on, he was inducted into its hall of fame. He also enjoyed his personal car collection, with Jeff remembering his father traveling to California to pick up a 1967 Chevrolet Impala and driving it all the way back. Jim would help eventually help organize the Fourth’s car show, which Amy said “made him happy” because “people invited him to be involved.” He and Joan would move into town from Rock Lake, and Jim would take his aforementioned golf cart around town, sometimes with family riding on it. He had a set routine with his friends, riding on the cart to the Akron Mini Mart for coffee with his buddies, then later meeting up for a meal with them at Jonesy’s Junction. Amy admitted out of habit that she still will sometimes “just look to see if his golf cart is out” in town. Jeff said his father would be “honored” to know that he was the parade grand marshal. “This would mean so much to Dad,” added Amy. A number of Jim’s family, which now includes grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren, will be at the front of the parade in his stead.

Her family and the Rochester community made a plan to do so anyway. Co-workers, family and friends organized a special send-off for retiring Schwenk Thursday, June 23, in front of Rochester High School. As Schwenk was returning from her last summer class session with a group of students, she was welcomed with family, students and community members waving, cheering and sharing flowers to wish her well in her retirement. “How did you do this?” Schwenk muttered while wiping tears from her face. Her husband, Tom Schwenk, explained with a smile, “There was a Facebook post and you were blocked.” The social media post instructed members to save the date for the surprise. It was made apparent that Schwenk has been a staple in

the school community; love and gratitude was shown as many shared hugs and took pictures, and words of appreciation were given. “She always believed in me, which made me believe in myself,” student Lily Chipps said. “Mrs. Schwenk was a dedicated teacher and appreciated her students. Her students will miss her very much,” said Riddle Elementary Principal Luke Biernacki. “Charlee treated my kids very well, she always went the extra step to make them feel special,” shares Michelle Jaeger, co-worker and parent of students taught by Schwenk. “We will miss her each day not seeing her at school, but know she’s enjoying time with her family and friends during her retirement.” Schwenk will leave a lasting impression for the school and community. She has created running, walking and jump rope clubs to get the kids active and has helped students raise thousands of dollars every year for Jump Rope for Heart. She has also lead Girls on the Run and many other programs within the community.

Each Thanksgiving morning since 2004 faithful supporters show up for the “I’m Thankful Four,” a four-mile road run to benefit the Kelsey Mikel Memorial Foundation, which provides two scholarships to NorthWood High School seniors. The first is a $1,500 one-time scholarship to a senior member of the school’s yearbook staff and the second, the “Dreams Come True” award, given to a senior “with passion, vision and dreams, who has plans to impact the world in positive ways.” The scholarship provides ( 4V[OL $1,000 annually for four years to a senior NorthWood Y /L -VY ;OL )V`U student who applies and is then selected by the nineZ ElkAfter person board, which includes Mikel. year’s o Edithis :LL 7HNL tion Reachin awards are given, Mikel said theVol. foundation have ch g Elk 35, No.will hart, Kos 3 provided more than $105,000 in aid to students. ciusko, Nob The annual run and walk, which began only seven le And LaG months after Kelsey’s death thanks to the organization www.seniorli range Counties of family friends, has grown into a popular Thanksgivfenewspaper s.com ing morning event that attracts hundreds of runners, walkers and supporters each year.

The Mikels have been active in many other organizations to help preserve their memories of Kelsey. They have been active in the Indiana Donor Network, which helps facilitate organ, tissue and eye donation and transplants across the country. They are also active with the organization’s annual “Gift of Life Celebration,” at which Mikel has played an integral role as its emcee for several years. “August 21 is a day that I’ve always allowed myself to be in a bad mood,” Mikel said, referring to the anniversary of his daughter’s death. “Last year on August 21, my daughter, Mattie, gave birth to our first grandchild. It has allowed me to redefine that day.” Mikel said one of his wife’s biggest fears was people wouldn’t remember Kelsey. Through their efforts and the support of their community, it is assured that her memory will continue to live on.

“Thanks to Charlee, my family has made memories doing 5Ks, Girls on the Run and Kid Fit,” shared parent Ashley Chipps. The love of her community and students didn’t end after class was over. Her daughter, Abby Fitzgerald, remembers her mom clipping pictures and articles from the local papers for her students. “I always appreciated when she would cut out articles and pictures of me from the newspaper. It made me feel like she still thought about me even after was finished teaching me,” said past student, Dalanie Chipps. Throughout her career as a physical education teacher, Schwenk would use her lessons as an opportunity to teach her students something with value.

Business Profile —

Revive provides healthy options with many flavors %\ $/,621 +$1'< 6WDII :ULWHU Jessica Strickler had aspirations of opening her own nutrition wellness store, which would feature nutritional products with supplements, so when the Rochester store front became available, the opportunity felt like a perfect fit. On Jan. 10 Strickler became the owner-operator of what is now known as Revive Nutrition, located in the Peace Tree Village Plaza. Once the doors were open,

the store was rebranded to Revive Nutrition to represent new changes within not only the store but the community to which it serves. Today, the store is stocked full of nutritional products that are sure to gain popularity in the Rochester area. Revive Nutrition has a wide array of products from protein powders to collagen to vitamins. “I like to help people reach their goals in living a healthier lifestyle,” she says. Strickler expresses that there is no other shop like Revive in the area, designated to nutrition and

focusing on sharing healthier alternatives with their customers. “We are a healthier option to a quick meal on the go compared to other establishments.” Their most favored menu items are the loaded shakes, which are a meal replacement, with added protein, vitamins and macronutrients as well as the tea bombs, which offer caffeine to give an extra boost of energy along with burning calories. All teas are sugar free and also offer an aloe shot, which helps support digestive health. Both products help provide vitamins that one may lack or need more of all while helping with the everyday cravings. Revive has a mission to provide something that tastes good while being healthy; that is why they offer flavors for everyone. With over 22 shake options and endless tea bomb flavor combinations, there is something to interest any palate. In addition, they are always adding to the menu. New drinks are added frequently to entice different tastes; slushies are a new introduction at Revive. They even have the trending craze, Boba tea, available. They don’t only serve beverages. You may also grab a protein cookie or bar for a quick snack.

Congratulations and thank you to the staff and physicians for their continued dedication to deliver safe and quality care to all patients. Woodlawn Hospital is, once again, a 4-Star Rated CMS hospital!

Revive strives to help those in the community. Along with providing meal replacement options, they offer activities and events to encourage their customers’ wellbeing. Customers can attend cardio drumming 5:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday evenings. Cost of the class is $5 and includes a pre-workout shot or rebuilding shake poured over ice. Strickler shared that a goal of hers is to implement an instructional class, “Sip N Bake,” where customers can learn to make their own drinks and protein fueled snacks at home. You can visit Revive Nutrition 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday; and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. They are located at 2056 Peace Tree Village, Rochester.

Let’s study the Bible Who is this man? (Read: Matthew 8:18-29) “But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!” (Matthew 8:27) %\ 5(9 521 First, The 385.(< Cost Of Following Jesus Christ (Matthew 8:18-22). To be a disciple is to be a fully-devoted, verbal and visible follower of Jesus (see Matthew 8:18-20). Jesus would often preach to crowds and then interact with individuals to see who was serious about discipleship. Once a scribe told him, Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go. But Jesus said the son of man had no place to lay his head. In other words, he asked, “Are you sure you understand what you’re getting yourself into? Will you follow me when there’s no Hilton, no Holiday Inn?” Are you committed to him, even when times are hard? Another person wanted to follow Jesus but said, “First let me go bury my father” (see Matthew 8:21-22). That is another way of saying he wanted to receive his inheritance before he committed himself to discipleship. Once his father died and left him sufficient funds, he would be all in. But Jesus permitted no postponement: Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead — that is, let those who are spiritually dead worry about such things. Are you willing to risk discipleship even when it does not fit with your economic plans?

Second, The Lord Jesus’s Power Over Nature (Matthew 8:2329). Jesus used a storm to move his disciples from fear of circumstances to faith in him (see Matthew 8:2325). While they were traveling by boat, a violent storm arose but Jesus was sleeping. Their circumstances looked bleak so they panicked: Lord, save us! We’re going to die! Jesus rebuked the winds and the sea to calm the storm, and he rebuked the disciples for their little faith (see Matthew 8:26-27). He wanted to expand their understanding of him and their trust in him. As a result of what he did, the disciples were amazed at Jesus’s lordship over creation. This suggests they did not fully know who was in the boat with them. The storms and trials of life are designed to give you a bigger view of God and a more precise understanding of who Jesus Christ really is (see Matthew 8:28-29). The size of your faith is ultimately tied to the size of your God. Third, Maybe this was a satanic attack to destroy Jesus Christ. We do not know, but see the peace Jesus displayed — able to sleep in a dangerous storm. This is the peace we can have when we know we are in the center of God’s will. Again, by his word he controls the wind and the sea, and there is an immediate calm. We go from a “great tempest” (Matthew 8:24) to a “great calm” (Matthew 8:26) because of a great savior. Oh, how I love Jesus. How thankful we should be that Jesus Christ calms the storms of life (see Psalm 107:23-31).
