The temperature may still feel like winter, but the city of Knox has set Spring leaf pick-up days. Leaves will be picked up April 1-4 and May 5-9. They should be placed in the street along the curb and not in the alley. The Knox City Street Department will pick up brush and limbs each Thursday. However, it’s up to professional tree removal companies to clean up brush and limbs left behind as a result of their jobs. The Knox composting site is also available at the north end of Shield Street between city hall and the police station. Grass clippings, leaves, fruits and vegetables may be dropped off there.

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.
