Photographer/secretary finding another angle

January 2, 2012

NAPPANEE — Local photographer, chamber secretary, and “all around ad man” Dale Tobias — normally viewing things from behind a pen or a lens — is planning on looking at things from another angle, through the eyes of a retiree.
Not that he will slow down all that much, he said he’s “not ready to just sit by the fireplace with my feet propped up,” and that he might do some traveling … “see a little more of the USA.”

Some childhood inspirations lead to adult careers

January 2, 2012

Gingerbread, Goodies Galour at Main Street Coffee House

Normally the business, owned by Debra and Marcus Miller, offers fresh soups (some in bread bowls), signature sandwiches and many other tasty and popular coffee house items — but Dec. 10 candles in a variety or pleasant scents were sold by Trish Hostetler, and Barb George, owner of Goodies Galour, Bourbon, sold her delicious wares (such as cake “push-ups” and Christmas cookies) to customers passing through.

Callander offers final gift to library, schools

December 22, 2011

NAPPANEE — Representatives of the Nappanee Public Library and WaNee School system were pleasantly surprised recently by a generous donation from one of Nappanee’s native sons. 
More than $196,000 was given to the two institutions as part of the estate of Richard G. Callander of Scottsdale, Ariz., who passed away in June of 2009. Though he rarely visited his birthplace after moving to Arizona as an adult, Callander’s final gift is a testament to the happy years he spent there as a youngster.
