Brian Hakes of Decatur has been named one of 24 hockey players in Indiana who are recipients of a Hobey Baker Character Award.
The awards are presented by the Hobey Baker Award Foundation through the Indiana State High School Hockey Association (ISHSHA).
A pair of traffic accidents just two or three minutes apart, two miles east of Decatur on US 224 on Tuesday afternoon, injured no one, but damaged both vehicles, broke three power poles, and knocked out electrical and cable television service for a large number of people.
