by Emily Armentrout

Stella’s Resale and Thrift opened in Wabash last year after Tammy Snyder moved in from Elkhart the year before and fell in love with the town. A visit with her mother, a Wabash resident, inspired Snyder to open a resale shop with her husband. Snyder and her mother would often visit thrift shops together, and she wanted to bring some of that passion to Wabash.

The store’s name came from Snyder’s 9-year-old black lab, Stella. “I never had any girls, and I always wanted to use that name, so I named my dog Stella,” Snyder told The Paper.

The Wabash County FSA encourages winter storm livestock loss reports

The Wabash County Farm Service Agency office is encouraging all producers in Wabash County that own or raise livestock of the importance of keeping accurate records of any losses that may have occurred during the recent storm. The records should include adequate proof that livestock deaths occurred as a direct result of the storm. The quantity and kind of livestock that died as a direct result of the eligible disaster event may be documented by purchase records, veterinary records, bank or other loan documents, rendering truck receipts or personal production records. Reports of loss should be filed with the local FSA within 30 days of the loss.

The 2008 Farm Bill Act that created the Livestock Indemnity Program has expired. There is hope however that a new Farm Bill will restore the program and allow producers to be compensated for livestock losses caused by an eligible event.

Producers with questions may call the Wabash County FSA office for further information. The phone number is 260-563-3145 Ext 2.
