A Knox woman wound up in the Pulaski County Jail Sunday night after driving off a rural Pulaski County road into a field. The sheriff’s office got a call around 5:30 p.m. of a red Buick in a field near 1450 West and 100 North. The caller was concerned because neither of the people in the car were moving. The deputy who came out to investigate ended up arresting Christene Shepherd, 40, of Knox for operating a vehicle while intoxicated, possession of a controlled substance and possession of paraphernalia. Neither she nor her passenger were injured.

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.
