MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR: COMMERCIAL FACADE GRANT

Details MAYOR HENRY

As most of you know, I truly believe neighborhoods are the heart of our community. As a city councilman and as Mayor, I've been committed to strengthening our neighborhoods and helping to make our commercial corridors thriving areas of business and activity.

VOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP: MR. BIRCH

Details RICHARD A. STEVENSON

Ethan Birch has had numerous problems and bumps in the road in his life, but he has learned how to turn these negatives into positives.

STRAIGHT FROM THE SENATE : STUDENTS INVITED TO CELEBRATE INDIANA STATEHOOD, HONOR HOOSIER TRADITIONS

Details STATE SENATOR DAVID LONG

Each year on December 11, we celebrate Indiana's statehood. Though the date is foremost a commemoration of Indiana's entry into the union as the 19th state, it's also an opportunity to celebrate Indiana's present and future – our abundant agricultural resources, beautiful scenery, diverse economy and kind, hardworking citizens.

Indiana has come a long way since 1816, but it's these aspects of our state that have and will always define us as Hoosiers. As our 196th birthday nears, it's an...
