Fourth grade students from around Wabash County got a little taste of life on the farm on Tuesday, Sept. 25, during the annual Ag Day.


Students spent the entire day moving among 18 stations where they were able to learn different aspects of agriculture. The event was sponsored by the Wabash County Farm Bureau and the Purdue Cooperative Extension Service.


“What we’re trying to do is educate 450 Wabash fourth graders about agriculture and advocating for agriculture,” Mark York, Wabash County Farm Bureau president, told The Paper of Wabash County. “Sometimes this is the only exposure that these kids get to agriculture and where their food actually comes from.”

The Wabash County Courthouse and jail will soon receive repairs at a total cost of nearly $17,000.


At their Oct. 1 meeting, the county commissioners approved replacement of the stairs on the south side of the jail, as well as replacement of the tile floors of the three porticos of the courthouse.


County Coordinator/HR Director Jim Dils presented both requests.


“For some period of time, we've been trying to get quotes for the set of stairs on the south side of the jail,” Dils said.


He received two quotes, and recommended using Gaunt and Son Asphalt, Inc., for the repair, which includes new stairs and an anodized aluminum railing. The stairs were quoted at $10,100, with the anodized aluminum railing an extra $865.

The Wabash County United Fund kicked off its 2018 fundraising campaign with the annual Wabash Rotary Club golf outing on Wednesday, Sept. 12.


Nineteen teams signed up to play 18 holes of golf at the Honeywell Public Golf Course, as well as to speak with representatives from the 21 agencies benefiting from the 2018 campaign.


“This is United Fund’s 61st anniversary year, and we are especially excited to kick off the campaign with Wabash Rotary,” UF Executive Director Steve Johnson said. “It is such a wonderful opportunity for the business community to come together in support of community programming.”


The campaign seeks to raise $250,000 again this year.


“We had some new teams sign up, some new participation, some new sponsorship, all the way around,” Johnson told The Paper of Wabash County. “We had some new prizes for the raffle drawing. So, we’ve had a lot of new things this year that sort of stepped things up.”


The big prize this year was a hole-in-one prize provided by Dorais Chevrolet Buick GMC, with insurance coverage provided by INGUARD.
