Eric Schoening and Dave Monroe are seeking the Republican nomination for the Wabash City Council’s Second District seat in the May 7 Primary Election.


The winner will be on the November General Election ballot. As of now, there is not a Democratic candidate for the post.


Schoening is an incumbent, but is in his first election campaign. He was appointed to the post by the Republican Party after Council member Aaron McClary resigned after moving from the City of Wabash. McClary won the November 2015 Council election against Monroe, who ran as a Democrat at that time.


The Paper of Wabash County asked the two candidates a series of questions, who which they had up to 75 words to answer.

Monroe failed to respond to the questions.

The MSD of Wabash County school board Tuesday night rejected a bid to complete carpeting and painting upgrades at Northfield and Southwood High Schools.


It was reported during the meeting that Shawnee Construction out of Fort Wayne was the lone bidder for the project, bidding roughly $1.98 million for the scope of work.


The school district had hoped the bids would come back more in the $1.34 million-range, and wanted to stay under between $1.6 and $1.8 million.


Both members Kevin Bowman and Todd Topliff said they couldn’t support paying that much for work on the schools which was aesthetic in nature.

Early voting for the May 7 Primary Elections has not been very popular, according to County Clerk Lori Draper.


Draper told The Paper of Wabash County that as of Friday morning, only 17 early ballots had been cast for the election thus far.


“It’s been very slow – it started Monday,” Draper said. “There’s not that many races. There’s only one party and there’s just council races across the board in every place. It’s just slow.”

The Indiana Supreme Court took oral arguments Thursday, April 18, during a hearing at the Honeywell Center’s Ford Theater.


The court routinely hears a few cases each year outside its courtroom in the State Capitol Building in Indianapolis.


Thursday’s hearing dealt with the cast of Katelin Eunjoo Seo vs the State of Indiana.


In July 2017,  Seo contacted the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department alleging that she was the victim of a crime, and named the alleged perpetrator. As part of the investigation, she unlocked her smartphone and allowed a detective to review its contents. After the review, police opted not to charge the perpetrator, and began investigating Seo instead.
