Whitley County Commissioner Tom Rethlake took a red-eye flight home to Whitley County from Florida Wednesday evening, unaware that a surprise awaited him at the 2011 Whitley County Republican Party's Lincoln Day Dinner. Rethlake was awarded the GOP's top achievement award, being named 2011 Whitley County Republican of the Year. Rethlake received the award from long time friend and associate Kim Wheeler. Prior to presenting the award, Wheeler shared heartfelt memories of Rethlake dating back to his childhood years when he remembered Rethlake's friendship with his father, Harold "Potch" Wheeler.
