LAPAZ â Cindy Wingett turned 105 on Thursday. The lifelong resident of LaPaz may have some memory loss, but she clearly remembers an event that happened when she was just 18.
Thatâs how old she was when she met her husband, Donald.
Although Donald passed away more than 40 years ago, Cindy lights up when she tells the story of how they met.
âI was with my friend, and she said, hey look thereâs two guys, I know them,â remembered Cindy. âThey pulled right up to the curb and talked to us, and we told them we were going to the show. They took us to the show that day, andâŠwell, that was it.â
WALKERTON - Thereâs a crisp bite in the air and that means the onset of fall in the area and with that John Glenn High Schoolâs Falloween Festival.
âOne of our objectives is to raise money for scholarships,â said William Morton, Principal at Glenn High School. âIt also allows many of our school organizations to raise money for their activities. Those organizations also donate a portion of what they make to the scholarship fund. I think in the past two years weâve been able to give away around $50,000 in scholarships.â
There is also another purpose to the celebration.
An Argos man who was jailed Monday and accused of having more than 80 âone potâ meth labs was released the same night due to what the Marshall County Prosecutorâs office called a miscommunication on paperwork.
Robert Swan Bowen, 32, of 116 Broadway St., Argos, was arrested along with David William Boone Cottrell, 24, Muckshaw Road, Plymouth Monday night.
Bowen was charged with dealing/delivering/manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine and paraphernalia.
However, because the paperwork wasnât in order, no bond was set and Bowen was allowed to leave.
