NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” finalists will take to the Honeywell Center Ford Theater stage tonight at 7:30 p.m.
Runner-ups Andy Erikson, Ian Bagg, Dominique and Wabash’s own Michael Palascak will open for Clayton English, the winner of Last Comic Standing.
So far, touring “has been really good,” Erikson told The Paper of Wabash County in a phone interview.
“We’ve been all around. East Coast, West Coast, the Midwest,” she continued. “It’s been really fun.
“We’ve gotten to perform every night for different crowds all over the country and we’ve gotten to see how those different crowds … laugh at or react to different jokes and I think it’s making us all stronger comics. So it’s an experience to try to grow.”

What does it take to make a Thanksgiving turkey?
Kami Ross’s kindergarten students at Metro North Elementary School are all knowledgeable in the art of cooking turkeys for Thanksgiving Day suppers. However, it seems none of them agree on the exact steps to take.
From needing moms or dads, Aunt Tee Tee or Uncle Timmy, each student has his or her own way to make a turkey taste the best. Ross provided The Paper of Wabash County with her students’ detailed recipes to share with the community.

The holiday season entered Wabash over the weekend, with the annual Celebration of Light ceremony at the Wabash County Courthouse, Santa’s arrival via fire truck and a two-day Holiday Night to Remember celebration.
Several hundred people gathered at the Courthouse to hear Vocal Impact, the Wabash County youth choir, perform several Christmas carols.
They also heard from Steve Downs, Wabash Marketplace Inc. executive director, who welcomed everyone to the event.
“This Celebration of Light has been held in Wabash County for many years,” Downs said.  “It is our community’s way of joining together to ring in the holiday season.”

The Wabash County Christmas Spirit (WCCS) program received 850 knit hats last week from six women who spent all year handcrafting them.
Wabash resident June Long said the group started knitting the first of the year.
“We started in September and we did scarves (which were donated to last year’s program),” Long said. “My grandson, Matt (Dillon), was down there every day last year.
“This year, I didn’t want to do scarves again because I’d rather do hats and so we all decided we were going to do hats.”
