All of the First Fridays in 2016 mark a different time period for Indiana's yearlong bicentennial celebration, and the April event covers the time period from 1850 to 1900s. First Friday is 5 to 9 p.m. The Circuit from Clunette Methodist Church will take center stage from 6 to 9 p.m. New Life Christian Church will have a "wishing wall." People will be able to write down their prayers, re- quests or needs for the big wall. For more personal prayer requests, there will be a drop box, according to First Friday coordinator Paula Bowman. A local Boy Scout troop will have its gyroscope back for participants to ride for a small fee. It is a fundraiser for the troop. Bowman also said several different churches will have fundrais- ers Friday for mission trips and other needs. Food vendors will be on site, while other groups will provide some kids activities. "There will be something for everyone," Bowman said. For anyone who didn't get their Polish T-shirt last month, Bowman said a large selection will be available. The shirts include the Polish Princess and the "Made in America in KC with some Polish Parts" variety. The Indiana Bicentennial Torch lights are still avail- able for $500 for any town, business or individual to purchase, and information on those will be at Friday's event.

Matthew Hoshal, 24, of 1246 E. CR 400S, Warsaw, was arrested for robbery, theft, public intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting law en- forcement. He was booked into Kosciusko County Jail on a $10,250 bond. Kosciusko County Sheriff's Department responded to a Fast Cab taxi driver after 11 p.m. Friday after she pepper- sprayed the suspect who at- tempted to rob her. According to the probable cause affidavit provided by the Kosciusko County Prosecutor's Office, Hoshal fled the scene before police arrived. The driver told KCSD deputies that she had been or- dered to pick up Hoshal and a female subject at Rex's Ren- dezvous, Warsaw, after 11 p.m. Hoshal and the woman began arguing in the cab, and refused to leave when the driver advised them to do so. He then began asking the driver how much money she had and attempted to take her wallet. At this point, the driver administered pepper spray to Hoshal's face and he took her cellphone and ran toward a nearby field. When officers found Hoshal walking along a field, he began running away. With the assis- tance of a K-9 officer, officers were able to locate him again. After being apprehended, he told police he ran because he was drunk and on parole. He had visible pepper spray on his face and shirt. He was arrested at 1:57 a.m. Saturday.
