A helping hand: Group aims to help the homeless

September 1, 2013

NAPPANEE — During a Christmas shopping trip to Chicago in November, 2012, John Shafer was touched by the many homeless people filling the streets. Shafer immediately felt the need to help them.
“I thought in a city of three million, if everyone could give five hours – or as little as $5 – what a difference that could make for those people,” said Shafer. “But I didn’t really think I personally could do anything, I’m just one person.”
Thoughts of how he could possibly help those with no roof over their heads continued to fill the Nappanee resident’s mind.

What we want may not be the best thing for us

“In the Dailyness of Life ...”

On our recent two week vacation, I had a plan. I wanted to see a moose.
After all, Maine is known for them and we’d be spending four nights there and two in New Hampshire as well.
While in Acadia National Park, I made sure to ask the park rangers for the best directions to view these awesome creatures.
I’d seen them years ago when we’d camped in Yellowstone; I hoped to be able to see them up close and personal again.
But, my idea of moose viewing was hastily halted when I learned that the best place to see them was actually a 2-3 hour further drive.

Application deadline nears for state park deer reduction hunts

The deadline for hunters to apply for this year’s state park deer reduction hunts is Aug. 25.

Hunters must apply online by visiting Hunting.IN.gov and clicking on the "Reserved Hunt Info" link. Paper applications are not available.

Deer reduction hunts reduce the ecological damage that deer herds cause in state parks by helping to maintain deer browsing at a sustainable level. Biologists determine which parks require a reduction each year based on plant recovery and previous hunter success.

Sisters vacation together for 30 years

August 10, 2013

NAPPANEE — The Jewell girls are celebrating 30 years of sisters’ vacation together. 
They, with their brother, Vernon, are children of the late Rev. Marvin and Ruth Jewell who pastored the former Nappanee Pilgrim Holiness Church 1948–1954. 
Rebecca returned to Nappanee when she married Wayne Haney in 1966.
It all began in the summer of 1983, when, on a whim, we decided to make a trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee taking Mother with us.She died two months later. The trip brought so much enjoyable time together, that we decided to do it again the next year, in Mother’s memory.”
