Thursday Night Blues kicks off on March 3 with the Rockin’ Johnny Band at the Historic Eagles Theatre.
 
Led by guitarist Johnny Burgin, the band performs a mix of Chicago blues, funk, rock and swing with no set list of songs that it plays from.
 
“I’m a traditional Chicago blues player,” Burgin told The Paper of Wabash County, “but we have a kind of new thing at every show. I’m trying to give people goose bumps.
 
“It’s not like a concert of a repertoire. It’s trying to be a thrill ride.”

By Joseph Slacian
 
A Wabash man believes he doesn’t own an East Sinclair Street home the city ordered him to either repair or tear down.
 
Kenneth Crace told The Paper of Wabash County that he did own the home – known as the Shiloh Historic Home, 45 E. Sinclair St. -- for less than a week in 2015, and that the city should order its rightful owner to either tear it down or repair it.
 
The Wabash Board of Works and Public Safety gave Crace, who Building Commissioner John Stephens said is the owner of record, 30 days to begin repairs or demolition.

Scouts from as far away as Lafayette and points in between converged on Wabash on Sunday, Feb. 21, for the 76th annual Lincoln Pilgrimage.
 
The event, which took place at the Honeywell Center’s Legacy Hall and in the facility’s skating rink, took on a new format this year.
 
“For 75 years it kind of evolved into a rope-making and a museum-type thing,” according to Chris Mehaffey, Scout Executive for the Boy Scouts of America Sagamore Council. “We focused on Lincoln a little bit.
 
“We wanted to focus on the citizenship part of what Scouting really teaches.”

OB services returning to Wabash
By Joseph Slacian
 
Obstetric services are returning to Wabash County when the new Parkview Wabash Hospital opens in 2018.
 
“We’ve made the decision to bring back OB services when we go into the new facility,” Parkview Wabash President Marilyn Custer-Mitchell told The Paper of Wabash County. “Right now we do not have OB services and won’t until early 2018 when we occupy the new facility.”
 
The Wabash hospital has been without OB services since 2004 when the then hospital board opted to stop the services citing, among other things, rising insurance costs.
 
Custer-Mitchell said bringing the service back has been perhaps the most asked question among local residents.
