Police Seek Answers in Local Farmer’s Death
By Laura Bradford
Staff reporter
The death of a local farmer is being looked at more closely by the Heavenly Police Department in the wake of a recent rash of burglaries throughout the close-knit Amish community.

Earlier this week, the body of Wayne Stutzman, 41, was found in his barn by a family member. Sources tell Heavenly Times the death was not reported as suspicious. However, once money was discovered missing from the home, the possibility of foul play in Stutzman’s death grew.

As of press time, a phone call to Detective Jakob Fisher at the Heavenly Police Department seeking more information had gone unanswered. However, the detective’s car has been seen outside the Stutzman home several times since the incident, prompting concern among residents.

Calling All Dessert Enthusiasts
By Laura Bradford
Staff Reporter

Just when you think the smells coming out of Lighted Way’s own Shoo Fly Bake Shoppe can’t get any better, think again.

Ruth Miller, proprietor of the popular eatery, has added a Bavarian Crème Fry Pie to her daily menu that is earning rave reviews from locals and tourists, alike.

“If I didn’t know any better, I’d think our town got its name because of Ruth. Everything she bakes smells and tastes heavenly,” said Molly Riker, 52, of Heavenly.

Shoo Fly Bake Shoppe is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday.
