Corbins ‘plant’ themselves within Nappanee community

July 19, 2011

NAPPANEE — Joel and Joyce Corbin have successfully planted themselves within the Nappanee community, serving it by making it a little more beautiful. The couple bought Fred’s Flowers April 29 and jumped right in, opening the florist shop with the name Floral Cascades and the greenhouse, Plant Life, March 1. Though they painted and did some rearranging, a couple things they kept the same were former Fred’s professionals Dawn Lanzon, and Fran Stouder with designer Lori Shank-Thompson (from Wygant’s Florist in South Bend) and Elizabeth Anglemyer from Lakeville.

Wakarusa water separation almost complete

July 19, 2011

WAKARUSA — At Tuesday’s regular council meeting, Wakarusa officials gave approval to make the final payment on a project that began the first week of April.

The council hired contracting company Brubacher Inc., Wakarusa, to do the job that entailed making five separations. Now nearing competition (the job is projected to be done June 15), the final payment of $30,400.68 will be made on the overall charge (with all change orders) of $321,382.

Millers offer new menu, bigger portions

July 10, 2011

New menu. Bigger portions. Those are the two main things Steve and Vickie Miller have brought to the Dutch Kitchen restaurant (now Miller’s Dutch Kitchen) since they purchased the restaurant March 31. That and their giant tenderloin of course.
“Its a monster — plate-sized,” Vickie said. “We have an all-new dessert menu too including ‘whoopie pies.’ Those are very popular. And we added several items to our Saturday morning breakfast buffet like ‘overnight’ french toast and waffles.”

Street projects lead to two-way traffic

July 1, 2011

NAPPANEE — Summer roadwork along E. Lincoln Street has resulted in the decision to convert the 100 block of S. Elm Street to two-way traffic. Previously the area has been used only for southbound traffic.
Outlines of the work to be performed include blocking off entrances to the road from a major city parking lot, located on the north side. Changing traffic flow on south Elm will allow vehicles to enter and leave the parking lot, with access to E. Market Street (U.S. 6).
The 100 block of south Elm will continue allowing two-way traffic through September pending completion of the project.
