Good Morning Ya'll,

I hope you have a good day.  There was some mist when I came into work this morning around 5:30am.  Our temperature is at 45 degrees with the humidity of 93% and the windchill of 42 degrees at 8:35am.  There is some wind out there and the leaves are flying all around.  Be careful with the piles of leaves that are on the curbside and out on the road as there could be some tree limbs that are underneath the leaves.

Lets see what's going on in the news.  East Noble board to discuss school site.  The site for the proposed new East Noble Middle School will be the topic of a special East Noble School Corporation Board of Trustees meeting Wednesday night.

East Noble Superintendent Ann Linson said the board will meet at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the central office building, 126 E. Rush St., to discuss concerns raised over a high-pressure natural gas pipeline buried along the southern border of the site on the west side of S.R. 3, just south of the South Main Street intersection.



The proposed school site is in two parcels, with about 2.5 acres zoned residential and approximately 57 acres in farmland.

At last Thursday night’s public forum on the project and its Nov. 4 referendum, many in attendance at the Kendallville Public Library learned there is a 20-inch gas line extending east to west along the southern border of the proposed middle school site.

That information had some people questioning the safety of building a school in close proximity to the gas line.

Linson and school board members at the forum said they would investigate the issue.

The school corporation has a binding contract to purchase the farmland from IN REM, a group of land owners, for $436,857, according to East Noble Business Manager Brian Leitch. East Noble has also negotiated a separate deal to purchase the 2.49 acres for $170,000 and provide the owners with a 2.5-acre plot the school corporation owns on Waits Road near the Sherman Street intersection.

The land purchases are contingent on:

• The school corporation winning the Nov. 4 referendum;

• Securing the project’s financing through the sale of bonds;

• Acquiring access to Lisbon Road and S.R. 3; and

• The real estate being properly zoned to allow placement of a school and school facilities.

The referendum question on the Nov. 4 ballot is: “Shall East Noble School Corporation issue bonds or enter into a lease to finance the construction of a new East Noble Middle School and mechanical and roof improvements to East Noble High School, which is estimated to cost not more than $37,880,000 and is estimated to increase the property tax rate for debt service by a maximum of $0.3547 per $100 of assessed valuation over the 20 year life of the bonds?”

The proposed middle school site is the only business item on the meeting agenda that was announced Friday.    Reported by Dennis Nartker KPC News

Today's weather is supposed to be:


Hi: 52°

Mostly cloudy. Highs in the lower 50s. North winds 10 to 15 mph.

Lo: 35°

Partly cloudy through midnight then clearing. Lows in the mid 30s. North winds 5 to 10 mph.

Take care and be safe.

Good Morning Ya'll,

I hope you have a good day and have a wonderful weekend as well!  It was cool this morning with our temperature of 51 degrees and the humidity of 93% along with the windchill of 49 degrees at 8:56am.  Do you have any plans for the weekend?  We are going to be putting up our Halloween decorations tomorrow as we will have our grandsons over for the day.

Today we have our Euchre players coming in around noonish to 1'ish to have their card game.

Lets see what's going on in the news.  Three CASA's honored for ongoing service.  While three people were presented with awards for their years of service as court-appointed special advocates Thursday in Kendallville, many others were honored.

Volunteers, judges and staff were recognized at the Northeastern Indiana CASA Inc. Volunteer Appreciation Banquet Thursday at the Kendallville Event Center. About 80 people took part in the meal and celebration.


“Last year, our volunteers donated nearly 10,000 hours and served 337 children,” Northeastern Indiana CASA Executive Director Kristi Bachman said. “Tonight is our night to say, ‘Thank you.’”

Three court-appointed special advocates were honored Thursday for years of service to children. Phil Tripi of Wolcottville was recognized for five years of service, and Glenn Cox of Howe and Winnie Rogers of Wolcottville for 10 years each.

Featured speaker retired Noble County Judge Robert Probst explained some of the history of the group, which now serves Noble, LaGrange, Steuben, DeKalb and Whitley counties.

When the program was created in 1986, it only included Noble, LaGrange and Steuben counties, Probst said. DeKalb and Whitley counties joined in 1989.

Originally the program was administered by Foster Services of DeKalb County, even though DeKalb wasn’t part of it yet then, Probst said. The counties’ courts took it over in May 1988. It was restructured to have an all-volunteer board in 2006, he said.

“We consider you to be an integral part of the judicial system in our five counties,” Probst said. “You are to represent the best interests of children. You are considered officers of the court.”

Bachman told the story of a young man who was a ward of the state from birth to age 19. He didn’t get his court-appointed special advocate until age 14, but that CASA was the first person to encourage him to think beyond a GED to college. He got his degree and now has a successful career in the U.S. Navy, she said.

It’s because court-appointed special advocates care and have to speak up for what’s in the best interests of the children that their work matters, Bachman said, adding, “Don’t give up. These kids need you to be their voice and their advocate.”    Reported by Bob Braley KPC News

Today and the weekend's weather is supposed to be:

Good Morning Ya'll,

Sorry this is late but I have been keeping up with the fog delays for schools this morning and I was surprised that East Noble didn't have a delay.  I did post the schools that were on a delay so everyone would know just in case they haven't turned on their tv or radio.  I do hope you have a good day today.  Do be careful out there driving in that fog as it can be dense too.  The temperature is 52 degrees and the humidity of 100% at 9:27am.  Please also make sure you have your lights on so other's can see you and you can see the road.

Today we have Annette with SHIP as it is starting Open Enrollment.  If you need some help give us a call and we will set up an appointment for you to see Annette.  260-347-4226

We also have the Flu Clinic coming in as well for flu shots.

Lets see what's going on in the news.  Improvements set to start on busy streets.  Two of the city’s busiest streets this time of the year will be resurfaced beginning next week, and motorists should observe caution in the work zones.

On Wednesday morning, Kendallville Engineering Administrator Scott Derby along with representatives from Niblock Excavating Inc. explained in detail the resurfacing of Riley Street between U.S. 6 and Diamond Street, and Garden Street between Diamond Street and Vine Street to affected business owners and school officials.


In July, the Board of Public Works awarded Niblock the contract for $361,779.

The milling and repaving work is expected to take three to four weeks to complete, and may begin Tuesday or Wednesday with sidewalk, driveway access and curb preparation, according to Dave Walter, Niblock representative.

Residents will have access to their homes, and customers will have access to businesses along Riley Street.

East Noble Middle School is located at the corner of Diamond and Riley Streets, and East Noble High School and the Cole Center Family YMCA are along Garden Street. Traffic, including school buses, will be affected at those locations.

Niblock intends to work on both streets and mill off 2 1/2 inches of the asphalt on each. Along Riley Street, work will include updating Americans with Disability Act sidewalk ramps and storm inlets, and widening the radius of the Diamond and Riley streets intersection.

“The intersection will be widened for two southbound lanes and one northbound lane,” Derby said.

Work on Garden Street will be less intense, with no curb or sidewalk ramp upgrades. City water and street department employees replaced the Garden Street culvert, and Strawser Bros. Inc. installed new sidewalks on both sides of the culvert bridge. City water pollution control employees cleaned out sewer lines under Riley and Garden streets.

The biggest impact will be on East Noble Middle School, where buses enter and exit the school’s parking lot off Riley Street. Niblock will replace a sewer manhole near the Riley and Rush streets intersection. Walter said Niblock intends to keep open one north-south lane on Riley Street. Milling and repaving will be done one lane at a time.

A city police officer is expected to assist with traffic control before and after school.

Barricades will be set up at the Diamond Street and U.S. 6 entrances onto Riley Street indicating local traffic only and prohibiting through traffic.

“Work zone ahead” signs will be placed along U.S. 6 approaches to Riley Street.

The asphalt millings from both streets will be used by the park and recreation department to smooth over Bixler Lake Park roads and fill in low areas.   Reported by Dennis Nartker KPC News


Also the Christmas parade details for Kendallville announced.  The 46th-annual Christmas Parade is set for Saturday, Dec. 6, with the theme “A Christmas Story.”

The parade starting time has been moved forward to 4 p.m. to accommodate other planned holiday events later in the day including the tree-lighting ceremony at 6 p.m. in Bixler Lake Park.


Parade applications are available at The News-Sun, 102 N. Main St., or the Kendallville Area Chamber of Commerce, 122 S. Main St., or online at

Deadline for applications is Friday, Nov. 21.

KPC Media Group Inc. and radio station WAWK The Hawk are again coordinating sponsors of the parade, which has been held in downtown Kendallville since 1969. The Main Street Business Association and the Kendallville Area Chamber of Commerce are supporting the event.

The parade is open to all groups and organizations in Noble County. Monetary prizes will be awarded in the categories of parade theme and most unique. Judges will select a best overall unit.

The East Noble Marching Knights and Santa Claus will again be among the participants.

Parade participants will assemble at North Side Elementary on East Harding Street at 3:30 p.m., and at 4 p.m. proceed west on Harding Street, then south on Main Street to American Legion Post 86.

For additional information, call Nancy Sible at 347-0400, ext. 1173.   Reported by KPC News

One last thing, The Strand Theatre plans a thank-you festivities.  The Strand Theatre thank-you celebration for those who supported the “Strand: Keep the Lights On” campaign will be Saturday, Oct. 25, the same date the successful campaign began in 2013.

Free showings of the movie “Ghostbusters” will be at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Free hot chocolate and popcorn will be available.


A movie poster thanking those who gave to the campaign will be in the lobby. Committee members will be in the lobby to thank the community for the campaign’s success.   Reported by KPC News         

Grandparents and Parents bring your kids to see Ghostbusters!!!  It is such an awesome movie and the kids will be singing the theme song to it by the time it is over!!! It is one of my favorite movies!!

Good Morning Ya'll,

I hope you have a good day!  They say we are to still have rain off and on throughout the day so you might want to take your umbrella's with you and have your kids take a jacket just in case it does rain on them.  Our temperature this morning is at 53 degrees and the humidity is at 95% at 7:09am.  There are NO delays for this morning.

There is a silver alert out for statewide for a man in Rushville, Indiana.  Indiana State Police issued the alert early Wednesday morning in conjunction with the Rush County Sheriff’s Department.

Police said 53-year-old Howard Bullard was last seen Tuesday morning around 8 a.m. Rushville is approximately 40 miles east of Indianapolis.

ISP said Howard is 5 feet 7 inches tall, 190 pounds, with short brown hair and brown eyes.

They believe Bullard is in danger and in need of medical attention. Bullard is missing the tip of his right ring finger and may have a long scar on his right calf. A clothing description was not available.

Bullard may be driving a 1998 green Honda Accord with Indiana license plate 973NCN.

If you have any information call the Rush County Sheriff’s Department at (765) 932-2931.

Howard Bullard, 53, Rushville, was last seen Tuesday morning.

Please if you see him call the sheriff's department with the phone number above.  Let's bring this man home safely!


Tomorrow starts Open Enrollment for SHIP.  Annette will be busy with alot of people so if you need to see her call and make your appointment early.  260-347-4226

Also tomorrow we have the Flu Shot Clinic here all day!  If you need your flu shot then come on in and get one!

Lets see what's going on in the news.  Rome City announces leaf pick-up.

Rome City will begin picking up leaves at the end of this month.

Town Manager Leigh Pranger announced the following pickup schedule:


• Town proper, first pickup Oct. 29 and 30; second pickup, week of Nov. 24;

• North side of Sylvan Lake, first pickup, week of Nov. 3; second pickup, week of Nov. 17; and

• South side of Sylvan Lake, first pickup, week of Nov. 10; second pickup, week of Dec. 1.

Questions should be directed to Town Hall at 854-2412.   Reported by KPC News


Also City of Kendallville saves money with lease.  A new lease agreement with an office machines company for digital imaging machines will save the city money because three departments instead of one are in on the deal.

The Board of Public Works on Tuesday morning approved Police Chief Rob Wiley’s request to enter into a 60-month lease agreement with Office Concepts Inc. for seven digital imaging machines with multiple data management features, toner and maintenance for $520 a month.

Wiley explained the police department’s 63-month lease agreement with Office Concepts that started in October 2009 is coming to an end this month. That agreement with the police department only provided five machines for $569 a month. With the fire department and mayor’s office joining the police department in the new lease agreement, the city will save $588 a year.

The current lease agreement is for five machines.

Quotes were also received for a 60-month lease from Allen Business Machines, $625 per month, and Adams Renco, $696 per month.

“The new multiuse lease agreement will allow all of the users to save significant cost while gaining access to new, state-of-the-art equipment, and cost-effective maintenance and supplies,” said Wiley in a memo to the board.

In other business, the board:

• Approved the Kendallville Area Chamber of Commerce request to hold the annual Christmas Parade on Main Street on Saturday, Dec. 6, at 4 p.m. A Christmas tree lighting in Bixler Lake Park will follow the parade.

• Approved Fire Chief Mike Riehm’s request to pay Rawles Services LLC $24,570 to replace the furnace and air conditioning system at Fire Station No. 1 on Drake Road. The new system is 95 percent efficient.

• Approved an invoice payment to DLZ of Indiana for engineering work on the proposed Fairview Boulevard reconstruction project. The city is responsible for 20 percent of the total invoice of $57,819, or $11,564. A federal government grant is funding the other 80 percent of the project. The Redevelopment Commission also approved paying the local portion.    Reported by Dennis Nartker KPC News

Good Morning Ya'll,

I hope you have a good day and try to stay dry as much as possible.  You might want to take your umbrella again today since they are calling for more rain again.  It is nice outside with the humidity of 94% with the temperature at 63 degrees at 7:16am.  It is wet and there are leaves down on the streets and that can cause for slick conditions so please be careful while driving on the leaves that have fallen.  

Last Friday we went to the movies and saw Dracula movie down in Auburn and it was a really good movie and if you like those types of movies I'm sure you will like this one.  And Saturday night we had our grandsons over to spend the night and we rented the movie Transformer's: Age of Extinction and that was a really awesome movie!  Out of both of them I would give them 10 stars total.

Today we have our Bridge players coming in around noonish to 1'ish to have their card game.

Lets see what's going on in the news.  Zombie walkers will invade downtown.  The fourth-annual Zombie Walk on Main Street will Saturday, Oct. 25, at 4 p.m.

Participants should gather at about 3:30 p.m. in the city’s Orchard Street parking lot behind City Hall.


Approximately 50 to 100 people made up like zombies previously have participated in the walk up and down the Main Street business district.    Reported by KPC News


Also East Noble Band qualifies for regional with gold rating.  The East Noble Marching Knights received a gold rating in Class B competition at Homestead High School Saturday night to qualify for the Indiana State School Music Association regional contest at Chesterton High School this weekend.

The band received a gold rating with distinction honors for music and visual effects, according to East Noble director of bands Bryan Muñoz.

“We had a fantastic performance,” he said.

Later Saturday night, the band had another “solid performance” to finish second in Class B at the Snider Invitational held on the Wayne High School football field in Fort Wayne. After performing at about 7 p.m. at Homestead, the band, with support from East Noble Band Boosters, packed up and traveled to Wayne to perform at 10:12 p.m.

The band missed out on first place by 0.35 point, but received special caption awards for best music. East Noble’s score of 70.55 eclipsed the minimum of 70 points needed at this Saturday’s regional.

“There are two goals at regional for us,” said Muñoz. “Our primary goal is to receive a gold rating. That requires us to score a 70 or better. Then to advance to semi-state, our score must be one of the 10 best scores of the day in Class B in the state.”

There are two Class B regionals in the state, meaning the 20 best bands will advance to the semi-state competition on Nov. 1. The 10 best-scoring bands in Class B at semi-state will advance to the state finals in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The last time East Noble qualified for the state finals was in 2003.

On Saturday, Oct. 25, the band will compete in the Northrop High School Invitational in Fort Wayne.

The band will rehearse, weather permitting, on the high school parking lot tonight and Thursday from 6-9 p.m. A mass bands concert is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the high school gymnasium.The public is welcome to stop by and watch rehearsals and attend the concert.    Reported by Dennis Nartker KPC News

Good Luck East Noble Band at the regionals.  I used to be in the band back home and it takes dedication to what you want and to perform in a marching band!  That was my most favorite thing about school was the band!


Today's weather is supposed to be:


Hi: 68°

Cloudy with a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the upper 60s. South winds 10 to 20 mph.

Lo: 52°

Mostly cloudy with a 30 percent chance of showers. Lows in the lower 50s. South winds 5 to 15 mph.

Take care and be safe.
