When Scott Poole got Poole’s Meat Market up and running in 2006, the market had just two employees and offered a short list of items, including beef, pork and a few grocery items.


Poole has used his 20 years in the food industry to grow his business by leaps and bounds over the past 12 years, recently adding his son Taylor to the fray as well as new lines of deli meats and sauces.


“This has always been my dream to have a fresh market where you can walk in here and ask to have anything cut how you want it, in the quantity you want it, and have it packaged the way you want it,” Scott said.  “I’ve always stressed that customer service is a thing that’s not very often happening. We pride ourselves on the customer service end of it.”

Miller wins Voice of Democracy award

By The Paper Staff

Wabash Sophomore Halle Miller was named a Voice of Democracy Award Citation winner, presented by the Veterans of Foreign Wars as part of the Voice of Democracy Audio Essay competition.


Miller’s original essay and audio recording, entitled ‘Hope for the Future,’ focused on the selflessness and standard set by our veterans for others – the kind treatment all people, whether they are a stranger or relative. It also focused on being understanding and helpful of those in time of need, and to recognize when we as individuals, and as a country, are being influenced by others.

Museum offers behind-the-scenes tour

By The Paper staff

The Wabash County Historical Museum is home to some 175,000 artifacts, many of which are being preserved in their lower level storage or in the Richard E. Ford Archives and Research Center. 


The museum, as part of its “Your History. Your Museum.” Campaign, will be offering public tours of their collections storage spaces.  These tours will allow guests to see items not often available for public viewing and also learn about the preservation processes used by the Museum.


The tours will take place on Tuesday, April 24, and Thursday, April 26, at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. To ensure the safety of the collection and guests, space is very limited for each tour and no children will be permitted.
