MARSHALL CO. â€” The local Salvation Army group is still working toward its goal of raising $12,000 in its holiday kettle drive.
Local Salvation Army representative Jim Irwin said he was inspired by the tale of LaPorte County pastor Billy Nickrand, who recently rang a Salvation Army bell at a store for 60 hours straight.
â€śI said to somebody, Iâ€™d just like to get volunteers to ring 60 hours for us, not even 60 hours straight,â€ť said Irwin, who is the Salvation Army service extension representative for Marshall County.
ARGOS â€” An Argos man was jailed after he allegedly pointed an unloaded gun at his step-daughter and threatened to shoot her.
Marshall County Sheriffâ€™s Department officers responded to a home on the 15000 block of Hickory Road in Argos.
Donald F. Kulcsar, 40, Argos, was allegedly upset over children being noisy in the home.
At that point he pointed the gun.
Officers from Bourbon and Argos were also at the scene.
Kulcsar was booked into Marshall County Jail for neglect of a dependent, a class D felony, and pointing a firearm at a person, a class A misdemeanor.
