North Judson residents can put any brush they would like to have hauled off by the town alongside their alleys for pickup starting Monday. If the home doesn’t have an alley, brush can be placed along the curb. Either way, clerk-treasurer Donna Henry says it needs to be in place by 7 a.m. Monday to ensure pickup, as crews will only make one pass through town. She adds this pickup is for brush only, as leaves will be collected again this fall.

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.
