In loving memory of our amazing wife, mother, sister, aunt, and Gummi, we announce the passing of Nancy Buesching Tucker, a resident of rural Churubusco, in Tucson, Ariz. on April 13, 2012.
Growing up on the family farm south of Churubusco with beloved siblings (and outlaws) Ken (Janne) Buesching, Arcola, Bonnie (Al) Gore, Warsaw, Marlene Augenstein, Fort Wayne and Don (Colleen)Buesching, Noblesville, a passion for gardening emerged with the only lingering question being which sibling threw her precious bride doll to the pigs.

SOUTH WHITLEY ‚ÄĒ Jodi and Ethan Metzger had known they were having triplets since their eighth week of pregnancy, but what they did not know was that on Valentine‚Äôs Day they would receive three beautiful gifts from Heaven.
The Metzger triplets were not expected to be born Feb. 14, but Jodi drove herself to her doctor‚Äôs appointment earlier in the day, and within the hour, she was scheduled for a cesarean section to deliver.
‚ÄúThe doctor got things in motion, and he told me to call the babies‚Äô daddy right away,‚ÄĚ said Jodi.
COLUMBIA CITY ‚ÄĒ As expected, about the only discussion regarding the wind issue with the Whitley County Board of Commissioners Monday was that there would be no discussion regarding the wind issue; not yet, at least.
Whitley County joint Building and Planning Director Dave Sewell was on hand at Monday‚Äôs meeting to deliver and ‚Äúcertify‚ÄĚ a copy of the proposed ordinance change for zoning, as it pertains to wind energy conversion systems.
Sewell explained that all of the proper and required steps to this point had been taken.
