Extension Office has events planned

By Josh Sigler

Purdue Extension educator Mindy Mayes was on hand during the Wabash County Commissioners meeting Monday morning to deliver the commissioners the Extension’s annual report and remind them of a couple of important upcoming dates.

Mayes led off the brief meeting.

Mayes said the Wabash County Fair is from July 12-20 this year, while the Extension’s farm management tour is June 27 and 28.

A handout Mayes presented showed that Wabash County 4-H increased enrollment by 3.5 percent in 2018, creating a two-year increase of 7 percent.

Sheriff Ryan Baker then delivered the weekly jail report. He was the only other person to speak at the meeting.

The jail’s average population was 122, with 30 new bookings, and 11 transports.

Forty-two prisoners were being housed in Miami County, with six being housed in Elkhart County.

The current jail population as of Monday morning was 127, with 178 total inmates.

The jail was housing 55 Level 6 felons.
