INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Colts coach Chuck Pagano has been diagnosed with leukemia and is expected to be hospitalized six to eight weeks as he undergoes treatment.
He will be replaced on an interim basis by offensive coordinator Bruce Arians.
Team owner Jim Irsay made the announcement Monday during a somber and sometimes emotional news conference at the team complex.
Some members of local law enforcement will soon be better equipped to interact with individuals struggling with mental illness as they partner with Park Center to develop the new Crisis Intervention Team (CIT).
The new program in Adams County is modeled after the CIT program in Fort Wayne, which was instituted after a stand-off altercation with a mentally ill man, who was subsequently killed by police.
The Linkel Co. of Batesville, Indiana, has been awarded the contract to remove a huge logjam from under the Wendell Macklin Bridge in Decatur.
Linkel was the low bidder for the project as the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) this week received bids on logjam removals at eight different locations in northeast Indiana.
Linkel bid $94,754, while Yardberry Landscaping of Anderson bid $98,429 and Pioneer & Associates of Fort Wayne entered a bid of $176,610.
Haunted Decatur Wagon Tours will return for Callithumpian 2012 with improved and expanded tours, it has been announced.
The tours were featured as a one weekend event in 2011, but due to the demand for tickets last season it has grown to three weekends this year, the Callilthumpian Committee announced. Camelot Carriage Rides of Decatur will again provide the wagon and two horses for the rides.
