  • Her eyes wide with wonder, one year-old Addie Parisek gave serious attention to her matching pink pacifier as she regarded the large crowd watching her as she strutted her stuff as the youngest model in the 2018 Spring Fashion Show Thursday.
    Sheila Fawbush, extension agent for families and consumer science, smiled as she glanced around the large room at the Shelby County Extension Office during the show’s intermission, packed with nearly 100 people.
    “We were really pleased with the turnout, considering the snow yesterday,” she said.

  • The aura that surrounded a huge crowd smiling and laughing while busily loading items into boxes Saturday seemed more like a party than a charitable event.

    That’s because the more than two hundred volunteers who came together to pack enough food to feed 53,000 people for a week really enjoyed helping the less fortunate, said Jason Haggard, outreach and missions pastor at Shelby Christian.

    "I don't eat it as much as I'd like to, but I put it on just about everything," Doug Welch said with a sheepish grin as he checked the thermostat on part of his maple syrup collection system on his farm in eastern Shelby County.

    The evaporator, complete with a cast iron door that he opens to throw in a couple more logs, sits next to a huge pile of neatly stacked firewood that lines one entire wall of what he affectionately calls his sugar shack.
