Wabash County Commissioners announced their opposition to a proposed Indiana Department of Transportation project on U.S. 24 at their weekly meeting Monday, March 25.


Chairman Barry Eppley announced the opposition towards the end of Monday’s meeting.


The proposed project is for the remediation of U.S. 24 at the intersection of County Road 300 East.


“Based upon the citizen comments, and after examining the details of the project, we wanted to express opposition to that proposed project” Eppley said. “We believe that other measures such as reduced speed on U.S. 24, rumble strips to enhance notification to drivers, and perhaps enhanced signage all be of the measures we would suggest be implemented before remediation the size they proposed be installed.”

The last few weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind for Dean Gogolewski, the new CEO of the Wabash County YMCA.


Gogolewski began his new position on Feb. 25, replacing former CEO Clint Kugler, who joined the Indiana Youth Institute, where he will serve as Vice President of College Career and Community Initiatives.


“I’m acclimating, getting to know everybody,” Gogolewski told The Paper of Wabash County during a recent interview at the YMCA. “It’s an intentional discovery period.


“I’ve been making my way around town. Jay Driskill (the Y’s Vice President of Mission Advancement) has been phenomenal in getting me around town. It’s definitely been a whirlwind tour.


“I’m not done. I’ve got two more weeks of meet and greets. It’s going to be good to get to know the key players and folks that make Wabash such a great community.”
