Oregon-Davis students recently helped collect funds for the families affected by last month’s bus stop accident in Fulton County. “We had a fundraiser, a hat day, November 9,” Superintendent Dr. Don Harman told the school board last week. “Really neat that our students participated, and we raised $600.”
The Starke County Election Board members are moving the voting site for Oregon Township Precinct 2 voters from the Koontz Lake Fire Department to the Koontz Lake Association Building. In order for that to happen, a few upgrades need to be done.
The Koontz Lake Association needs the assistance of the Starke County Commissioners in order to keep kids from jumping off a bridge there. They’ve asked INDOT to post a sign prohibiting jumping from the bridge.

That matter came before the commissioners this week, and Starke County Attorney Marty Lucas has agreed to draft an ordinance for their consideration.
The eradication of Eurasian watermilfoil and curlyleaf pondweed in the Koontz Lake will begin on Tuesday, April 17th.
The Koontz Lake Association and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources River Enhancement Program will be conducting a whole lake treatment for control with EPA approved Sonar Herbicide. Other treatments will be completed within 90-120 days following tomorrow’s treatment.
