Part of Starke County Road 300 East through the Knox Industrial Park will be closed overnight and through the day tomorrow to allow concrete to cure. Contractors are working in the area to restore lawns and driveways that were disturbed by last year’s road widening project. The closure of 300 East just north of Culver Road is necessary due to several casting adjustments that are out in the southbound travel lane. Northbound traffic will not be affected. Barricades will be placed at the location of the casting. Drivers are asked to avoid traveling south towards Culver Road.

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.
