If you can’t call someone to drive you home after you’ve been drinking, calling 911 to report yourself as a drunk driver before harming someone may be the next best thing. That’s what a Logansport man reportedly did early this morning in Jasper County after running off the side of I-65 near the Demotte/Roselawn exit. Matthew Devore, 24, was booked into the Jasper County Jail after testing 0.09 Blood Alcohol Content. He reportedly told the state trooper who arrested him that he was “sick of Indiana, so he decided to go for a drive.”

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.
