July 20, 2013

NAPPANEE — In what may very well have been one of the shortest sessions in recent memory, the Wa-Nee Community school board made quick work of a spartan agenda on Monday, July 8.
Superintendent Joe Sabo said this year’s breakfast banquet and orientation session for new faculty members to the Wa-Nee staff is Aug. 14 at NorthWood High School. 
The event has become something of an annual tradition, with many businesses and civic leaders attending to formally welcome the new additions.
Sabo also reminded the board that there is a special school board meeting at 6:30 a.m. Monday, July 15.

NAPPANEE — The two-day WFRN Friend Fest was the place to be in north-central Indiana over the weekend.
The main focus of the show was, of course, the music, and about 2,000 people turned out to listen to contemporary Christian artists, including Big Daddy Weave and Saturday’s headliner, TobyMac.
Beth McCracken and Irenia Rimsky were excited about Christian acts Carrollton and the Rhett Walker Band.

In the Dailyness of Life: Trust Opal, but follow God for the long journey

June 29, 2013

“I’ve heard there’s some sort of a short-cut from here to Warsaw … ,” I said to my friend, Opal.
We’d just enjoyed great conversation over coffee and it was time for me to head home.
“I’d love to know what road to take. Do you know the way?”
“That’s Packerton Road!” she responded. “But it’s a hard one to describe. I’ll lead the way.”
I hem-hawed and tried to convince my friend (in her mid-80s) that I was pretty good with directions. Perhaps she might simply explain the best way. She would hear none of it. Together we left the restaurant as she offered a few more words of advice.
