County auditor responds to state's $200M tax mistake

April 10, 2012

“The $1.4 million to us means as much as the $33 million does for Marion County,” said Lukenbill.

April 9, 2012

BREMEN – Birds and Birdies abound at Sprig O’ Mint Golf Course in Bremen. Well, birds anyway. Birdies—1 shot under par—depend upon the golfer.
The birds, however, have been a winter ecological project of Brian Feldman, Golf Course Superintendent. In addition to his maintenance and planning duties during the off season, Feldman has busied himself building wooden birdhouses—16 bluebird houses and four duck houses, to be exact. He then erected the houses along the fairways of the golf course.
