Council trims funds from 2016 salary ordinance
By Joseph Slacian
 
The Wabash City Council trimmed the city’s salary ordinance by $64,800, eliminating the police department’s clothing allowance and holiday pay.
 
The elimination doesn’t mean that the department will not be receiving those funds. Rather, the funds were duplicated, and the duplication was eliminated.
 
The council, at its Nov. 23 meeting, also was asked to consider using $32,000 of the funds, which had already been budgeted, to create a receptionist’s position at City Hall. While the post would be new, the funding would not be as it was to be taken from the $64,800 duplicate payment.

“We’ve gotten to perform every night for different crowds all over the country and we’ve gotten to see how those different crowds … laugh at or react to different jokes and I think it’s making us all stronger comics. So it’s an experience to try to grow.”

What does it take to make a Thanksgiving turkey?
 
Kami Ross’s kindergarten students at Metro North Elementary School are all knowledgeable in the art of cooking turkeys for Thanksgiving Day suppers. However, it seems none of them agree on the exact steps to take.
 
From needing moms or dads, Aunt Tee Tee or Uncle Timmy, each student has his or her own way to make a turkey taste the best. Ross provided The Paper of Wabash County with her students’ detailed recipes to share with the community.
