Local pastor publishes daily devotional book
Tom Curry, pastor of Wabash Living Faith Lutheran Church, announced the release of his new book “Thoughts About God and Life.” The daily devotional book provides a five-minute devotion for every day of the year and follows different themes each month, Curry said. Originally, the book was meant to be something left to Curry’s family until a friend told the local pastor, “Hey, you know more people could benefit from that than just your own family.” Photo provided

Wabash Living Faith Lutheran Church Pastor Tom Curry combined his faith with his experiences to write and publish his new daily devotional book, “Thoughts About God and Life.”
 
Although there are many daily devotionals, Curry told The Paper of Wabash County that he wanted to combine his life experiences, thoughts about God and his Christian faith into a five-minute daily read that “might be helpful” to a “a person like my children, like my grandchildren or my great-grandchildren and people in my family that I may never get a chance to meet.”
 
Why?
 
Because life is hard, Curry said.
 
“At some point along the way, the wheels come off for many of us and it’s hard to navigate,” he continued. “And so, that’s what I thought that I would like to do before my mind weakens.”

LaFontaine faces utility rate increase; Debt stands at $1.8 million
By Emma Rausch
 
LAFONTAINE – LaFontaine water and sewer costs spiked in June and the residents there aren’t happy.
 
At the Town Council meeting on Monday, July 13, Council President Gary Henderson, councilmen Jon Gillespie and Jeremy Waite, Clerk Treasurer Cindy Erb and Town Attorney Al Plummer listened to more than a dozen complaints of bills jumping $20-$100 in a month.
 
The utility rate increases were applied to the July billing cycle at the council’s June 8 meeting. While the residents agreed that they did not mind the rate increase, the biggest problem was that the large amounts came all at once instead of a steady increase over several months and that it took so long to implement the rates.
 
“For me personally, I had to have a justification, a reason to (raise the rates),” Henderson said. “It was not an easy thing to do because we’ve been through three town clerks. It took … Cindy until January 2014, I believe, just to get the books balanced and know where we’re at.
 
“And that’s a tough thing because the guys went four years without any raises until we were able to do so this year.”
