  8. Victor JoseRead the original story w/Photo

    Wayne County and western Ohio. The Graphic distinguished itself as an outstanding example of how a weekly free circulation newspaper could compete by providing good community-oriented reporting, informative columns and opinion pieces, and information about garage sales and classified advertisements. It received many national awards from the National Association of Advertising Publishers, for which Vic was a major national leader. Vic was proud of what The Graphic meant for the Richmond community, and how it elevated local businesses, schools, institutions, and individuals. Vic could also be "determined" (a trait that he inherited from his "free thinking" ancestors that fled oppression in Europe), and was not deterred from expressing his opinion in his weekly "Here and There" columns, including a series about the utility companies in the aftermath of the great downtown explosion of 1968. He was concerned when the NAAP trade association started to accept membership from daily newspapers, so he led a group of like-minded weekly newspapers to establish the Independent Free Papers of America. Vic's devotion to Richmond extended well beyond The Graphic. He was an active member of Kiwanis for almost 60 years. He helped transform the Wayne County Foundation to focus on educational initiatives to help improve the quality of education for all residents of the county. He was a long-time behind-the-scenes supporter of the Salvation Army, because "they do good work". He was an organizer and active within the area Chamber of Commerce, and regularly supported initiatives for economic development. Most importantly, Vic would see the long-range impact of issues facing the community. This led him to pursue three initiatives well past his "retirement". First, he worked to encourage local business throughout the city to "adopt" the public school in their neighborhood. Second, over ten years ago he read early studies about the critical importance of reading skills by third grade. As a result, he enlisted local businessman Rick Ahaus and they raised over $150,000 from a multitude of sources to start the Third Grade Academy, a "literacy boot camp" during the summers to assist all third grade students not reading up to standard test score levels. This is serving as a model for similar initiatives in communities throughout the country. More recently, Vic's research in his late 80's revealed that children are dramatically affected by the extent they are read to each day from birth to age 5. This led Vic and Rick to the establishment of the K-Ready program to encourage collaboration between the local hospital and health care agencies along with religious and educational institutions to support their program to get books and reading materials into the hands of all young families. Vic's death leaves a large hole in the Richmond community for which he devoted so much time and effort up to his final day. His legacy for the community is well-established, and he received many awards from the community, ranging from the Chamber of Commerce to the Wernle Youth and Family Treatment Center. His legacy is also represented and survives through his wife, Faye, and their four children Cindy (husband Hank, children Nick/Kristie and Sarah, and grandchild Everett), Sandy (wife Connie, children Derek/Rachel, Becca and Alida, and grandchildren Lorelei and Reina), Jim (wife Ann and children Daniel and Alex), and David (wife Mimi, children Matthew and Evan, and grandchild Ian). Memorial service for Victor R. Jose will be at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, December 13, 2014, at First Presbyterian Church, 100 North 10th Street, Richmond with Rev. John Hollis and Rev. Dr. Russell Haitch officiating. The family will be receiving friends following the service. There will also be a reception in the Community Room at Friends Fellowship Community at 1:00 p.m. Sunday, December 14, 2014. Arrangements are being handled by Doan & Mills Funeral Home, 790 National Road West, Richmond. Memorial contributions may be made to: The Third Grade Academy, 33 South 7th Street, Richmond, IN 47374; K-Ready, 33 South 7th Street, Richmond, IN 47374; or a charity of your choice. Condolences may be sent to the family via the guest book at www.doanmillsfuneralhome.com.

    It was only after the rush of the moment that Tyler Painter wondered: What were the odds of that happening? What if the off-duty Indiana State Police trooper hadn't driven through Milton, Ind., when he did on Nov. 22, spotting a house fire just as it was springing to life? The seven-year ISP veteran and his two sons drove into Milton as they were heading home from hunting deer. When Painter noticed flames outside the home at 115 E. Main St., he quickly called 911, alerted the residents and attacked the fire.
