After 55 years of serving what’s been called the best breaded tenderloin in Indiana, Mr. Dave’s shut down the fryers, turned off the lights and locked the doors for good Saturday, May 13.
 
Owners Kevin and Tina Clapp chose to close the restaurant after Kevin was diagnosed with cancer in early May.

DNR hosts hearing on WRT permit

By Joseph Slacian

Representatives from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources listened to concerns from opponents to the Wabash River Trail for more than 90 minutes on Wednesday evening, May 17.

The public hearing in the Wabash Middle School Auditorium was requested in connection with the WRT’s request for a permit to build a bridge over the Lagro Creek on the eastern edge of the Town of Lagro.

Opponents cited a number of concerns, including the fact that the WRT has already worked on the project without receiving proper permits. The WRT worked on a boat ramp just east of State Road 524 without having received a DNR report, and audience members at the May 17 meeting alleged that WRT has worked in the area for which the hearing was taking place.
