Scott Greene, a graduate of Ball State University in communications and marketing, has been a youth pastor at Warsaw Community Church for four years.  Last week, he decided to go back to Warsaw Community High School as a sophomore so he could "understand the world of the kids he works with." For 10 days this month, Greene will walk through the hallways and sit in classes. "I'm really going to miss this. I've made some pretty cool friends."

    Glen and Leon Kaufman, working for Pacemaker Buildings, North Webster, place poles for a goat barn on the Warsaw fairgrounds. Previously, the 4-H goats had been housed under a canvas. Sue Studebaker, goat committee, said there were more than 200 goats on display last year.

Royce Burk, tower operator just east of the Detroit St. crossing, saw the approximately 100-car freight weaving and gushing huge flames and sparks as it approached his station about 3:15 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 20. A wheel was thrown near the tower; the floor was splintered and ripped a filling cabinet. Action began on Maple Ave. when a "truckside" broke on the rear of the 22nd car carrying huge rolls of steel. A wreck train came and its cable pushed a new set of wheels under cars, lifting them back on the track, after they derailed at the High St. crossing, bending about 100 ft. of heavy track. General Foreman John Klinefelter and his crew were replacing ties, spikes, plates and bent rails. Damage was estimated at $20,000. "It was extensive. It was a miracle it didn't pile up and no one was injured."
