An event which will provide honor helicopter rides to military veterans is scheduled for July 20.


LLL Truck Repair, along with Indiana and American Huey 369, a non-profit organization based in Peru, are partnering to host the event, called Honoring our Heroes to recognize veterans and active-duty personnel.


The event will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at LLL, located at 8254 West County Road 300 North in Andrews, near U.S. 24.
This is the third time the event has offered free flights. The community has stepped up for financial support to help send the veterans up, but anyone can take a membership flight.


The last event took place in 2017, and drew around 400 people.


“We’re probably expecting 500 people this year, but it probably won’t all be at the same time,” Ryan Long said.

NM council discusses EMS situation

NORTH MANCHESTER -- The North Manchester Town Council responded to two concerns from a town resident in its monthly meeting July 3.


During the June 5 meeting Anthony DeLaughter raised questions about long response times from Parkview EMS and the possibility of North Manchester starting its own service.


Council President Chalmer “Toby” Tobias addressed the issue after members met and discussed DeLaughter's concerns


“With the current five-year contract with the county and Parkview, each year the town will collect over $50,000 over expenditures,” Tobias said. “There is a possibility the town could reduce the EMS fees by 40 percent for the next several years and be OK. We are limited to what we can spend with the $50,000. There are options on the table looked at, but that doesn't have to remain the case.”
