Monday’s rain delayed INDOT’s scheduled chip and fog sealing of State Road 110 east of U.S. 31. The work is now scheduled to start Tuesday and wrap up Wednesday. INDOT’s marked detour will utilize U.S. 31 and State Roads 10 and 331 to get around the closure. Chip and fog seal repairs are performed in order to extend the life of the pavement. INDOT officials are trying to complete as many projects as possible before school resumes in order to minimize disruption of 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.
