TO EACH IS GIVEN GIFTS

 

I met Mary through a series of Emails that started when she contacted the Waynedale News. Her request was sent to me, by our editor, and thus started our friendship of communication. Mary is a gifted person, although I am sure she doesn't see herself as such, which is true of many artists. She is fascinated with cemeteries. Not just interested. No, more than that. She has sought out cemeteries in many states, studied the tombstones, and taken photographs of those...

Dear Cousin,

 

October is showing her true colors as autumn moves into the hills. Puffy white clouds move lazily across a remarkably blue sky, casting dappled shadows on Pilot Knob. Although the trees are still mostly green, a smudge of red can be seen in the distance where a maple tree stands in solitary splendor. The dogwoods are turning also, and it won't be long until our hills are garbed in their autumn finery.

The air is crisp as a Winesap apple, and just as refreshing. Nights are...

This recipe came from the Feast Of The Hunters' Moon put on by the Tippecanoe County Historical Association in Lafayette, Indiana the weekend of October 19-20, 2002. Thanks to Leon Dickson and E.J. Pheasant for letting THE WAYNEDALE NEWS sample some of the bread they were baking in an old fashion clay 'beehive' oven. They built a fire in the oven, and baked their bread inside after the fire was pulled out.

"Circle the wagons! ‑Indian attack!" was a familiar saying in B-Western movies of a bygone era.

Well, folks, the Indians will be back - are back - and will be at the Richardville House on Bluffton Road between Fire Station #5 and the Southwest Conservation Club on Saturday, November 2nd.

You need not circle the wagons. ‑We are friendly, and we welcome you to come to the oldest home in Allen County where you can see and purchase Indian crafts, eat buffalo stew and Indian fry bread cooked over...

The Great Square of Pegasus

 

The Great Square of Pegasus is an autumn landmark in the night sky. This large asterism, or group of stars, belongs to the constellation Pegasus, the Flying Horse in Greek mythology. Three of its stars plus the end star of Andromeda make up the Square. The asterism is fairly easy to spot, as it is one of the largest geometrical shapes in the night sky.

You'll find the Square very high in the southern sky. Face south and look almost overhead between 8 and 10 p.m...
