Dana Breading, manager of Merle Norman Cosmetics, placed three of Fred Olds' paintings on display in her downtown shop in order to showcase a piece of Warsaw's history. Olds held the roles of teacher, coach, painter, poet, singer, counselor--the list goes on--while a resident of Warsaw and Winona Lake. The paintings incorporate Breading's Cigar Store in various holiday scenes, so it is thought they were given to Robert Breading Sr. after he acquired the store in the 1950s. They were recently rediscovered by the Breading family in a storage area during the store's transition into the Merle Norman shop. Dana said Olds' work will be on display until the new year. Olds passed away earlier this year in Oklahoma.

25 Years
During their Christmas Eve party, Breading's Cigar Store selected Jack Helvey of Warsaw as its Man of the Year for 1990. The coveted prize was given to Jack for his devotion to playing Santa for the past several years. Patrons also collected $2,000 for charity. Proprietors Burleigh Burgh and Craig Smith said that groceries would be purchased for some needy families in the county, and a portion used for Warsaw's Little League program.

    Major Matt Bush, local U.S. Marine serving in Desert Shield, has written back, thanking those associated with the video he received filled with Warsaw's sights and sounds. Highlights included clips from Warsaw's first football game, and messages from Mayor Jeff Plank and Grace College president John Davis. Ken Anderson and his son, Ken Jr., of Ken Anderson Films, thought of the idea and produced the tape.
