INDIANAPOLIS - Ghosts, goblins and monsters will soon walk Indiana neighborhoods in search of candy.
And while Halloween is a time for fun and treats, it's also a night full of dangerous situations.
Kate Carr, president and CEO of the advocacy group Safe Kids Worldwide, says on average, twice as many children are killed on Beggar's Night compared to other times of the year.
She says there are more cars on the road, children are excited and it's dark outside, so parents need to be proactive.
PLYMOUTH â€” A contract outlining a continued arrangement between the city of Plymouth and the Marshall County Blueberry Festival is being negotiated.
Neither side would divulge details about what is being contested by the Blueberry Festival, but an agreement is expected soon. The Blueberry Festival rejected the contract at a board meeting earlier this month.
the current contract on file ends this year. It was a three year contract requiring the festival to pay $31,000 each year in rental fees. The contract also requires the festival to maintain a $5 million insurance coverage policy.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouthâ€™s Rockies have to feel that there is no place like home and living to play another week at the Rockpile has brought the reward of 7-2 South Bend St. Joseph.
The Indians come to Plymouth having lost back to back games in week five and six against Marian (8-2) and Penn (10-0). Last week they survived an opening round playoff scare at home against Hobart. They were able to do all that while replacing 10 starters from a year ago.
