The Wabash Board of Public Works and Safety approved a fund transfer in the contract with DLZ for the second phase of the Alber Street project.

Not all can find holiday spirit
By Emma Rausch
 
‘Tis the season to be jolly, the adage goes, but for those battling seasonal depression, getting into the holiday spirit isn’t easy and at times even impossible.
 
Seasonal affective disorder (SAD), also known as the winter blues or seasonal depression, is a type of depression related to changes in season, beginning and ending around the same time each year.
 
In fact, SAD looks exactly the same as any other major depressive episode, according to Matthew Graham, Wabash Bowen Center director.
 
“But the key difference here is that it has an onset that occurs typically late fall, early winter and onto into the spring then you see some … movement away from that seasonal affective disorder state,” Graham told The Paper of Wabash County. “So really what it is is a state that can come and go with intensity levels."
