Rose appointed to Democrat ballot
By Joseph Slacian
 
The Wabash County Democrat Party has appointed Donald Rose to run as an at-large candidate for the Wabash County Council in the Nov. 8 General Election.
 
He is replacing David Monroe who filed for the office, but withdrew prior to the May 3 Primary Election. Monroe's name still appeared on the ballot because he withdrew after the ballots had been printed.
 
“I’ve lived here since I’ve been about 15,” Rose told The Paper of Wabash County in a telephone interview. “The last three years I’ve been very active in Howard County. I am a UAW member and I work for Chrysler.”
 
He said he’s been with the political action branch of the union.

Ivy Tech Community College’s Wabash campus is in its waning days of being associated with the college’s Kokomo Region. Beginning Friday, it is moving to the Northeast Region.

The move was approved by the college’s Board of Trustees in May.  Wabash County has been part of the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership since 2007, and the move was made to align economic development partners with education partners.

Dr. Jerrilee Mosier, chancellor of the Northeast Region, believes the move will benefit the local campus.
