Jonathan Goodwin, one of the performers in “The Illusionists,” is billed as “The Daredevil” in the troupe.


A look at his resume explains why. Among the stunts he’s performed during his career include being hanged, buried alive, hung by his toes from helicopters, burned at the stake, attacked by sharks and being sewn into a cow, just to see if he could escape.

NORTH MANCHESTER -- The Wabash County Animal Shelter board of directors recently voted to cease services in North Manchester, effective Feb. 1.

The decision comes after the North Manchester Town Council refused to provide a date during its Jan. 10 meeting by which the council would inform the shelter whether it would provide $12,000 in funding for 2018.

Services, which include stray pick-ups and owner surrenders, will resume after a decision regarding the funding is reached by the council and accepted by the board, according to a Jan. 25 press release issued by shelter officials.
