The City of Wabash is fiscally sound, Mayor Scott Long told the Wabash City Council and about a dozen citizens and department heads on Monday, Feb. 13.
 
Long’s remarks came at the end of his first State of the City address.
 
“We’ve got a healthy General Fund reserve that we try not to dip into,” he told The Paper of Wabash County following the address. “We try to increase it on an annual basis. We were able to do that this year, not by a lot but by a little bit.”

NORTH MANCHESTER - Last summer, Bill Leonhard and his wife Denise ordered a line of spring clothing for their store, Cottage Creations, not knowing if they would have space to sell it.

After discussions with Matt Mize, owner of the building Cottage Creations is located in, the Leonhards were able to expand their business and open a boutique.

“The major part of the expansion is the boutique. My wife and I talked about it last summer and ordered the spring clothes, and then I went to Matt [Mize] and told him I was expanding my inventory and was interested in renting more space if he ever moved,” Leonhard said.
