Motorists traveling between Bass Lake and Culver will need to seek an alternate route for the next couple of days. INDOT plans to close State Road 10 between state roads 23 and 17 in Starke and Marshall Counties Wednesday and Thursday, weather permitting for chip and fog seal repairs. INDOT’s marked detour will use State Road 8 to get around the closure. The work will only occur if it does not rain. The chip and fog sealing process is designed to extend the life of the pavement. INDOT officials say crews are trying to get as much done as possible before school starts so as not to disrupt bus routes.

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.
