May 2, 2012

WAKARUSA — Like Geppetto in the 1883 Italian children’s tale Pinnochio, one Goshen man has been bringing life to simple pieces of wood for about 40 years.

Tale ‘as old as time’ told at NWMS

Doctor’s focus is overall wellness

April 27, 2012

NAPPANEE — One Nappanee doctor doesn’t give out sports physicals or vaccinations, but she does invite and motivate her patients to stay active and take care of themselves from the inside out.
Dr. Anissa Gruendler has been a chiropractic physician, for the past 20 years. She runs her business and The Nutrition Shop at 110 E. Market St. in Nappanee offering a wide variety of services and products. She has been “giving it” to her patients “straight” — and that’s not talking about good postural spine alignment.
