    Wabash College was cited as a “best buy” for quality academic offerings and affordability, according to the Fiske Guide to Colleges Best Buys of 2016.

    Wabash is one of 41 institutions nationwide to earn the rating, which identifies schools that offer outstanding academics and a high quality of student life on campus at relatively modest prices. The Fiske list includes three schools from the United Kingdom and Canada and is built of data from more than 2,200 four-year colleges in the United States.

    Wabash is one of 11 liberal arts institutions to make the list, and the only private school in Indiana to do so.

    Those looking to celebrate Independence Day weekend in the great outdoors can still find available campsites at a few DNR properties.

    While campgrounds are full in most locations, there are still a handful of electric campsites at Charlestown State Park, Deam Lake State Recreation Area and Raccoon Lake. Primitive and non-electric sites are still available at Lincoln and Shakamak state parks, and Raccoon and Salamonie lakes (all electric sites are closed at Salamonie).

    Many horsemen’s campsites are also available throughout the state, although campers must have a horse to use those sites.

  • Doctors to treat patients remotely
    Wednesday, July 01, 2015 7:44 PM

    Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health – Crawfordsville recently received technology that will allow specialists to treat patients without even being in the room with them. The machine can be used to beam in specialists and allow patients to be treated in house without making them drive miles away to a stroke doctor at another hospital.

    The machine was delivered on June 29. So far the hospital staff knows that the machine can be used on any floor of the hospital, but not much else. Carol Bailey, who is the St. Elizabeth’s East administrative director of ICU and Stroke Coordinator at both hospitals, said the machine is new for the whole staff and that everyone will be trained on the machine in the next few weeks. She said the machine should be thoroughly tested and ready to use on patients in August.

    Autumn Pearson, 17, is learning how to cope with her Spina Bifida through a combination of growing up and learning that she controls her life, not her disability.

    The North Montgomery High School senior is a Riley kid who has had around 50 surgeries in her short lifetime. Now she is in good health and going into her fourth session at Camp Riley with high expectations of learning and growing more.

    Pearson said she had a friend who went to the camp every summer for most of her childhood who highly recommended the camp to her, however she was hesitant to go. She finally did try out the camp three years ago, and she has been coming every summer since.

    An Independence Day cookout featuring some of Americans’ favorite summer foods – hot dogs, cheeseburgers, ribs, watermelon and other items – will be a little bit more expensive this year than it was last year, according to an annual survey from Indiana Farm Bureau.

    Farm Bureau’s informal survey showed that the average cost to feed 10 people is $58.34 – or just over $5.80 per person. This compares to last year’s total of $57.11.
