 Former NFL player Gale Sayers wishes Dr. Robert Abel a happy birthday Monday, Nov. 10, during a surprise party at the Wa-Nee Walk In Clinic. Abel reached out to Sayers around 50 years ago so he could give a pep talk to football players at NorthWood High School in Nappanee. Toward the end of Sayers' visit to the area, Abel offered to help Sayers start a home in Wakarusa. Sayers now lives two blocks from Abel.

Dr. Robert Abel has delivered up to 10,612 babies during his 64 years as a physician.

 Voters cast their ballots in the 2014 general election on Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2014 in Clermont, Ind.  Record-low voter turnout could be the most notable development of the day as Indiana's midterm election lacks a race for governor or U.S. Senate for the first time in 12 years.

Election results are in Wakarusa midterm elections. See the full results here.
