ROANN – A “diamond in the rough” that has been kept in a Roann garage for 25 years is now on permanent display at the Town Hall.

In 1992, Roann resident Jim Huffman spent the first six months of his retirement creating a replica of the Roann Covered Bridge. Made out of old pine, the model bridge, which stands about 2 1/2-feet tall and about 5-feet long, was donated to the town about two months ago.

It originally sat atop a counter until a table was built by J&K Woodworking in North Manchester.

By Joseph Slacian
 
Wabash City Schools are working hard to prepare its students for the future, no matter what road in life they may take.
 
That was the word Monday, Sept. 11, when City Schools Superintendent Jason Callahan gave the Wabash City Council a State of the School report. This is the first time Callahan has given such a report to the Council, which appoints Wabash City Schools board members.
 
The last recession cost Americans 12 million jobs, Callahan noted. Since then, 11.7 million jobs have returned, he continued. Of those jobs, only 80,000 were available to those with a high school diploma or less.
