The image on the stamp comes from a photograph by 25-year-old Milford native Michael Matti that shows clouds streaming above a northern Indiana cornfield. Matti took the picture on a dirt road just off Indiana 15 in Kosciusko County.Matti wasn’t thinking about stamps or state birthdays at the time. “I was home from college, visiting friends in Warsaw and I was on (Indiana 15), which I’d been on hundreds of times. I drove that road to high school every day. I drove it to Indiana Wesleyan. The postage stamp comes as numerous events and activities are planned around Indiana during 2016 to mark its 200th anniversary of statehood. Indiana became the nation’s 19th state on Dec. 11, 1816.
