Louise Friermood, an 89-years-young Wabash County resident, began her first fishing lesson Saturday, June 3, at the Bluegill Fishing Clinic with a smile on her face.

“I need to know a little bit about fishing,” Friermood told The Paper of Wabash County. “I don’t go very often. It wasn’t my husband’s favorite thing to do, but we went a few times. I know a little bit (about fishing), but my fishing was with a cane pole, the old-fashioned way.”

NM Town Council approves rate hike
By David Fenker
 
North Manchester residents may soon be seeing utility rate increases of 33 percent for water and nine percent for sewage.
 
The North Manchester Town Council voted unanimously to approve the first of three readings of two ordinances regarding the increases at its June 7 meeting.
 
“I understand these ordinances are probably some of the least favorite ordinances from the customer’s standpoint, as it impacts them in financial ways," Town Manager Adam Penrod said. "So this is something that we’ve been talking about as a council for some time… [We’re] not just looking for today, but also looking for the future and what’s needed. We’re not doing our job if we’re not keeping up with what the town has as an asset with the utilities."

Dozens of Wabash County youth picked up paintbrushes Monday, June 5, and kicked off the 2017 Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) summer art camp at the Charley Creek Gardens.
 
During the camp’s three one- to two-week programs, Kindergarten through 12th grade youth will work with local professional artists to learn new crafting techniques and hone design skills.
 
“The theme this year is color extravaganza,” artist Erica Tyson told The Paper of Wabash County. “So everything we do has something to do with color, color mixing, color creating, colorful objects.”

“Thank you to the audience for being here tonight regardless of any other event or occasion, like First Fridays,” Guisewhite said with a smile. “I mean it’s not like graduation is important or anything.”
