The American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Wabash County launched its fundraising season on Thursday, March 3, with a new theme and new goals.
 
The local Relay’s theme is “mash up” of history and reality television, according to the local Relay committee.
 
“Our sign that’s going to go everywhere says, ‘Cancer doesn’t have to be our reality because we learn from the past,’” Event Chair Amanda Wiley said. “For Indiana’s 200-year anniversary, we’re doing the historical (theme) and we also have the reality TV (theme).
 
“So the survivor’s tent are actually going to be ‘Survivor’ the TV show. … You can do Wabash history, Indiana history or you can do a reality TV show.”

By Joseph Slacian
 
The Wabash Board of Public Works and Safety will no longer meet on Wednesday afternoons.
 
Rather, the board, at its March 2 meeting, unanimously approved changing its meeting day to the first and third Thursdays of the month.
 
Mayor Scott Long said the meeting needed to be changed because it conflicted with another meeting – the Mayors and Commissioners Caucus for Northeast Indiana – which takes place on the third Wednesday of the month.
