MSD approves Athletic Code
By Emma Rausch
 
MSD of Wabash County’s Athletic Code was approved Tuesday, Sept. 26, with only changes made to replace slashes with “and or.”
 
The policy’s changes passed with a 3-2 vote after nearly a 30-minute discussion regarding a possible additional revision to the code proposed by Board member Todd Dazey.
 
On Sept. 19, Dazey introduced an amendment that established harsher punishment if a student violated state code, specifically in terms of possession of alcohol, tobacco or a controlled substance. If implemented, students found in violation would miss the remainder of the scheduled season on first offense, with the option of lessening the punishment by 25 percent if the student attended the Bowen Center. Upon second offense, the student would miss 365 days of sports.

By Emma Rausch

Manchester High School alumnus Jonathan Cable joined the cast of the “Jersey Boys” on national tour this August and will be coming to Wabash on Thursday, Oct. 19, for the musical’s Honeywell Center performance.

Cable and his family moved to North Manchester from Pennsylvania in 1994, the summer before his fourth grade year. It was in the Wabash County town that Cable explored all of his interests.

“I think of Indiana as the place where I was really able to pursue many different things,” Cable told The Paper of Wabash County. “I was able to be a very diverse kid and really explore different things that I enjoyed from sports to various musical pursuits, piano or singing."

Local families touched by Civil War

Editor’s note: The following are a series of stories about local families who, in one way or another, have been touched by the Civil War.

Family Losses
By Jennifer McSpadden

Some of the most tragic Civil War stories involve the families who suffered multiple losses.

There is a house on the corner of Wabash and Sinclair streets in Wabash that has a very sad history. Three brothers from that house, Richard, Charles, and William went to fight in the Civil War in the 101st Indiana Regiment, two in Company F, one in Company A. They never came home. They lie in graves in Tennessee and Georgia, and one in Andersonville.

NORTH MANCHESTER -- The Manchester Symphony Orchestra will begin its 79th season with a unique oratorio written by one of its own, titled “A Family Portrait”.

All area residents are invited to experience a Civil War encampment before the concert, which will begin at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 16, in Manchester University’s Cordier Auditorium.

According to a release from the university, Dr. Debra Lynn, MU’s director of choral organizations and voice study, composed the oratorio, which will feature Grammy-winning baritone Daniel Belcher and Judy Marlett, who found the letters on which the show is based, as soloists.

By Joseph Slacian
 
Unger Mountain is no more.
 
Sean Unger, owner of the 50-foot climbing tower, appeared before the Wabash County Board of Zoning Appeals on Tuesday, Sept. 26, for permission to locate the wall on another portion of land owned by his parents, Sam and Deanna Unger.
