The Starke County Commissioners are looking to fill a vacancy on the Starke County Community Corrections Advisory Board . State law requires a representative from a school corporation within the county to serve on the agency’s board. That position was most recently filled by North Judson-San Pierre High School Principal Annette Zupin. President of the Commissioners Kathy Norem says Zupin resigned from the SCCC board. The commissioners are responsible for naming her replacement. Any representative from Knox, North Judson-San Pierre or Oregon-Davis who would like to serve is asked to contact the Starke County Auditor’s Office. Starke County Community Corrections oversees select adult and juvenile criminal offenders who are sentenced to probation or home detention.

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.
