Jonathan Goodwin, one of the performers in “The Illusionists,” is billed as “The Daredevil” in the troupe.


A look at his resume explains why. Among the stunts he’s performed during his career include being hanged, buried alive, hung by his toes from helicopters, burned at the stake, attacked by sharks and being sewn into a cow, just to see if he could escape.


Naturally, the first question in a telephone interview with Goodwin is, “Why?”

NORTH MANCHESTER -- The Wabash County Animal Shelter board of directors recently voted to cease services in North Manchester, effective Feb. 1.

The decision comes after the North Manchester Town Council refused to provide a date during its Jan. 10 meeting by which the council would inform the shelter whether it would provide $12,000 in funding for 2018.

Services, which include stray pick-ups and owner surrenders, will resume after a decision regarding the funding is reached by the council and accepted by the board, according to a Jan. 25 press release issued by shelter officials.

As a youngster, Steven Sweet saw a picture of drum kit in a Sears Christmas Wish Book.

He got his first toy kit when he was about 5, and his first real kit when he was 12.

“So I guess you can say I started playing when I was 12,” he said.

His love of the drums paid off, for after years of practice and honing his skills, Sweet was invited to join the band Warrant. The rest, as they say, is rock ‘n’ roll history.

Sweet and his band mates – Eric Turner, Jerry Dixon, Joey Allen and Robert Mason – will perform at the Honeywell Center’s Ford Theater on Saturday, Feb.. 3. They will be joined by Firehouse and special guest Downtread for the show, which begins at 7:30 p.m.
