Area student athletes in need of a physical are urged to take advantage of a partnership between IU Health Sports Medicine and the Purdue University North Central Athletics Department. They are offering $10 sports physicals on Tuesday, Aug. 20 from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the PNC campus. Physicals are available to any student-athlete regardless of age or school affiliation. However, athletes need to pick up the appropriate forms and materials at their school with all appropriate signatures and forms completed prior to their physical. All athletes are required to have an annual physical before taking part in sports, as is anyone who plans to participate in any preseason training. Completed forms will be turned in to the school on the evening of the physical.

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.
