Area residents, lock your doors! That's the warning Monroe Town Marshall Dio Hernandez gave to town council members Thursday evening.
Hernandez reported there has been a string of thefts, mainly from unlocked vehicles, that began in the Geneva area, moved north to Berne, and has now become prevalent in Monroe.
Hiring relatives will be forbidden by law in Decatur — and most of Indiana — by July 1.
Decatur City Council on Tuesday night began the process of adopting an ordinance curbing nepotism and thus complying with a new law approved earlier this by the Indiana Legislature.
The law does have a "grandfather" clause, meaning any current situations which might violate the law do not have to be rectified.
The Decatur Farmers Market began its fourth season on Thursday and for the second year in a row is located at Riverside Center, where ample parking is available for vendors.
The hours remain the same as last year, with the market opening at 3:30 p.m. and continuing until 6:30.
Participants provide their own tables and covering, if desired, and there is no fee for vendors.
