LaPorte Police say comments made on Facebook are to blame for a fight between two 14-year-old girls Tuesday night at LaPorte High School. Police responded just after 9 p.m. A news release indicates the girls met at the school to fight and says bullying had been occurring. Officers spoke to both girls and their parents. They say the issue was resolved when both parents agreed to delete Facebook, as it seemed to be the initial source of the conflict. Police told both girls they still have time to file charges if problems continue.

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.
