Wabash resident Terry Pulley’s artwork now hangs in the 49 W. Market St. studio after the award-winning artist opened his business, Alley Dog Fine Art Gallery, on Friday, Oct. 7.
 
After a lifetime of learning how to paint, Pulley, a self-taught artist, said he decided to open his own art gallery with his wife Teresa’s blessing and support, because it has been one of his dreams.
 
“I’ve been an artist for probably close to 50 years,” Pulley told The Paper of Wabash County. “I didn’t not do this as a profession, but I’ve always been involved in the arts. I’ve shown in many galleries … and so know the gallery business, I know the art business, but one of the things, and it’s always been one of my dreams, is to have my own gallery to where I can just show my works and I can just be in charge of all the decision making."

There’s a new song about the City of Wabash.
 
“Keep the Light On” was written Thursday morning, Oct. 20, by Nashville singer-songwriters Aaron Barker and Marty Dodson, along with students from The Access Learning Academy. It was one of several songs written by the pair and students around the area as part of the Honeywell Center’s Outreach Education Program.
 
“It’s the week of the year that I look forward to,” Barker told The Paper of Wabash County following the duo’s working with the kids. “Probably the only constant in my life is this regular trip up to Wabash. I get to think about it and anticipate it all year.”

The Chiropractic Service Station opened its doors on Cass Street Monday, Oct. 10, and will add to Wabash’s existing chiropractic care, according to Dr. John Godfrey, business owner and practitioner.

The new practice, located in the Shoppers Mart at 1146 N. Cass St. Suite C, took over the former Wells Chiropractic storefront in May after Godfrey and his wife, Angel, moved to the area in the same month.

Oklahoma City natives, the couple moved to Wabash to be closer to family and brought the practice with them in the move.

“After fives months (of preparations), I’m looking forward to meeting new patients and getting to know the community,” Godfrey told The Paper of Wabash County. “We want (the practice) to feel like a family operation.”

The majority of Wabash County’s corn farmers are reporting elevated levels of mycotoxins in their crops and it could mean trouble if not handled properly, according to Curt Campbell, Wabash County Purdue Extension educator.
 
Mycotoxins are natural chemicals that are associated with ear rot and can be harmful for humans and animals to ingest, according to cornmycotoxns.com, Purdue University’s research website.
 
Farmers across the state report mycotoxins annually and, therefore, it is common to see low levels of the toxins throughout the agricultural community, according Charles Woloshuk, a botany and plant pathology professor at Purdue University whose research specializes in mycotoxins associated with grain production.
 
However, in Wabash County, corn producers are reporting ear rot associated with two forms of mycotoxin, vomitoxin and aflatoxin, according to Campbell.
