Candace Coe honored her mother, Dreama, by naming her new restaurant after her.

“I always loved that name,” Coe said Saturday, Dec. 16, following a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the restaurant she and her fiancé, Samuel Velasquez, opened at 1950 S. Wabash St. “She always wanted a granddaughter named after her. She had 16 grandchildren, and none were named after her, so I named the restaurant after her.”

Coe and Velasquez acquired the restaurant, most recently known as Michael’s, earlier this year. The name officially changed to Dreama’s Restaurant about four weeks ago.

At the commissioners' Dec. 18 meeting, however, Dils had four items regarding the Wabash County Judicial Center that needed action by the commissioners: Phase Two of the building's WiFi update, a new workstation for the Superior Court, replacement of the south door and removal of large bookshelves from the room used for day reporting.
 
“We'd now like to implement Phase Two, which would service the second floor of the Judicial Center,” Dils said.

By David Fenker
 
AKRON -- After working the restaurant business in Akron most of her life, Kristy Nelson had to go back.
 
“It's all I've ever done. I worked there for 18 years before the doors closed,” Nelson said.
 
Nelson worked for Sloane's Fine Food and Spirits, located just off State Road 14 at 108 E. Rochester St. in Akron, until financial troubles forced the bar to shut down.

After about a year and a half of working in restaurants around Wabash County, Nelson and her husband, Christopher, purchased what became Kristy's Hometown Bar and Grill.
