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

April 10, 2012

Although the amount is not as dramatic as other Indiana counties — Marion County, for example, will be reimbursed $33 million — it’s all relative when the county population is taken into consideration, said Marshall County auditor Penny Lukenbill.
“The $1.4 million to us means as much as the $33 million does for Marion County,” said Lukenbill.

April 9, 2012

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.
