What does it take to make a Thanksgiving turkey?
Kami Ross’s kindergarten students at Metro North Elementary School are all knowledgeable in the art of cooking turkeys for Thanksgiving Day suppers. However, it seems none of them agree on the exact steps to take.
From needing moms or dads, Aunt Tee Tee or Uncle Timmy, each student has his or her own way to make a turkey taste the best. Ross provided The Paper of Wabash County with her students’ detailed recipes to share with the community.

The Wabash County Christmas Spirit (WCCS) program received 850 knit hats last week from six women who spent all year handcrafting them.
Wabash resident June Long said the group started knitting the first of the year.
“We started in September and we did scarves (which were donated to last year’s program),” Long said. “My grandson, Matt (Dillon), was down there every day last year.
“This year, I didn’t want to do scarves again because I’d rather do hats and so we all decided we were going to do hats.”

The D Shoppe, located at the corner of Wabash and Market Streets, is closing its doors after 31 years of business this New Year’s Eve, but not before spending one more holiday season in Wabash.
“We’ve been going on (31) years and that’s a long time and I feel good about that,” said Mary DeLauter, owner. “These wonderful friendships that we made are just worth everything to us.
Established on Oct. 4, 1984 by DeLauter and her husband, Gene, the original “dream was to have a children’s shop,” DeLauter said.
“I always worked in clothing stores from the time I got out of high school,” she continued. “So I always thought at one time I’d have a children’s shop.”
