NORTH MANCHESTER -- In just 100 years, mankind has survived two world wars, placed a man on the moon, and made advances in civil equality. Turning 100-years-old, local resident Pauline Pobst had a front row seat to these advances in history.
 
Since moving to Wabash County in the 1930s, Pobst met President Richard Nixon, saw “Gone with the Wind” when it originally came out in theatres, drove a Plymouth Coop as her first car, and watched ideological and technological advances develop through the ages.
 
“I started in a horse and buggy and I flew to California,” Pobst said. “It’s getting to the point now where I’m wondering where in the world are we going next?”

Five of the seven LaFontaine Town Council candidates debated on Monday, April 20, in front of over 40 members of the community.
 
The candidates, all Republican, included Lori Brane, Walter “Bob” Couch, Jay Gillespie, Janet Robbins-Pattee, Tyler Guenin, and Jeremy Waite. Kinnie Sollars was not present at the event.
 
Before questioning began, however, candidate Tyler Guenin announced his withdraw from the race. He and his wife, Brooklyn, are moving out of the Town of LaFontaine, Guenin said to the audience.
 
However, since his request for withdraw came after the Feb. 9 cut off date, Guenin’s name will still appear on the ballot and he could potentially be one of the top three voted into the council. He asked that everyone to use their votes wisely and not elect him.
 
The candidates debated for nearly two hours on topics ranging from their qualifications to be on the council to the town debt, government mandates, and financial issues within the water department. The questions were submitted by members of the community.
