Some after-school programming changes are taking place beginning this week at The Access Youth Center.


“We have been doing an after-school program of some sort for the last nine years, mostly without change,” Director Liz Hobbs said. “That’s a remarkable amount of time to do an after-school program with little change and have it still be effective.


“Recently, though, in talking with our kids and parents – we kind of talk with them about every program to make sure we’re still being relevant and still hitting what they need – and so in talking with them, there’s been some interest in a new schedule and some new programs.”


The Access will still have programs after school and will still supply food during the program, as well as mentoring and homework help components.

A former clerk in the City of Wabash’s Wastewater Treatment Plant received a four-year sentence in the Indiana Department of Corrections during a hearing Monday in Wabash Circuit Court.


However, two of those four years were suspended by Judge Robert McCallen III, and the former clerk, Angelina Monroe, will serve those two years on probation. She also received credit for four days time served in the Wabash County Jail.


Monroe pled guilty on Oct. 1 to theft in connection with taking more than $152,000 from the Wastewater Treatment Plant. In exchange, charges of official misconduct, corrupt business influence and a second theft charge would be dropped.


She also must make restitution to the City of Wabash for $152,127.54 and to the State Board of Accounts for $26,477.38.

Early voting numbers exceed '14

Early voting began Oct 10 in Wabash County.


In its first 19 days, more voters have cast early voting ballots than in the entire time set aside for early voting in 2014, the last mid-term election, according to Wabash County Clerk Elaine Martin.


By Monday morning, Oct. 29, 2,226 people have cast early ballots for the Nov. 6 General Election, Martin told The Paper of Wabash County. That compares to 1,178 people who cast votes in 2014.


“I believe the school board races for MSD and Manchester, plus the school referendum for Manchester is the biggest concern on the local level,” Martin said.


The race for U.S. Senate between Democrat incumbent Joe Donnelly and Republican challenger Mike Braun also may be bringing people to the polls, she added.


Early voting will continue at the clerk’s office in the Wabash County Judicial Center from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Friday, Nov. 2, and from 8 a.m. to noon Monday, Nov. 5.
