Work on old jail progressing
By David Fenker
 
Restoration work on the old Wabash County Jail and Sheriff’s House is expected to be completed this fall.
 
That’s what Paul Hayden, director of the Indiana Landmarks Northeast Field Office, told the Wabash County Board of Commissioners at its July 31 meeting.
 
“Literally, we’re working from the top of the building down. The major improvement at this time is the roof and gutting system… the cornices had large holes in them with pigeons coming in and out; those have been rebuilt, the roof’s been rebuilt, the cupula has been repaired and reroofed, and gutters and downspouts have been installed,” Hayden said.

Eighteen teams spent part of Saturday, July 29, playing kickball and, more importantly, remembering the short but touching life of Karsyn Bratch.

The fourth annual Kick it for Karsyn kickball tourney took place at four diamonds at the Morrett Sports Complex.

Karsyn was diagnosed with cancer when she was 4-years-old and battled the disease for eight years before succumbing to it in October 2015, just weeks after the second annual kickball tourney. She was generous, friendly, and had a positive outlook no matter how she was feeling, something that inspired all who knew her.
