The new owner is Enrique Cabrera, who is also one of the owners of El Campo in Ada. However, Cabrera has hired Carlos Vazquez as the manager. According to Vazquez, Cabrera said, “I trust you,” and gave him this opportunity.

Paula McKibben “I have one good piece of advice. I learned early on that her outlook/opinion was much better than mine. I depended on her good common sense” (Luther Shetler, Feb. 6, 2017). This is one good reason why Luther and Geneva Shetler recently celebrated their 76th wedding anniversary. They were married on Dec. 22, 1940, in Goshen, Indiana, at the Eighth Street Mennonite Church. They had a lot in common. They both grew up on farms: Luther on a dairy farm outside of Goshen, and Geneva on a turkey and crop farm outside of Archbold, Ohio. They even both had college aspirations.
by Paula McKibben The planets and stars finally aligned and Phil Weisenbarger got his trip to London to the Brighton Veteran Car Run in London in the late fall. It was all sort of magical. His whole family knew that he wanted to see this race, but he hadn’t been able to put it together yet. Then, at the beginning of October, his nephew in London called with a birthday gift: come to London to stay in his flat for a week, including the first Sunday in November when the run happens. It was already October. Could he make it happen?
