The Medaryville Town Council recently voted to vacate an alley to allow construction of a 9,100 square foot Dollar General store in the downtown area. That action came on the heels of the Pulaski County Advisory Plan Commission’s approval of a rezoning request for land at 103 W. West St. in downtown Medaryville. The property was previously zoned for residential development but was recommended for rezoning to commercial in order to allow the development. Sullivan, Ind.-based Foster Builders, Inc. sought the rezoning request. A call to their office Friday afternoon to discuss their plans and a possible construction timeline was not immediately returned.

WKVI News Director Mary Perren is glad to be back home in northern Indiana and on the radio. She’s a North Judson native with more than 20 years of news experience. She’s worked in print and radio news in Indianapolis, Hopkinsville, Ky., Nashville, Tenn. and most recently in Winamac before taking over as news director for Kankakee Valley Broadcasting in February of 2013. Her work has been honored by the Associated Press, StateNets News Association, Curb Foundation, Hoosier State Press Association and IBA. When she’s not sitting in the anchor chair or chasing down news, Mary enjoys shopping for antiques, attending concerts and taking long walks and rides in her vintage Saab convertible, weather permitting. She’s also a hopelessly devoted Chicago Cubs fanatic who still cringes at the mention of Steve Garvey and Josh Beckett and maintains it wasn’t Steve Bartman’s fault.
