Bremen prepares for snow

November 26, 2013

BREMEN -- Now that the first snow of the season has hit, it's time to take a look toward the streets of Bremen in an effort to remain safe this season.
Specifically, snow plowing. The Bremen Streets Department will be on hand throughout the winter season, plowing the streets with seven different trucks. With that many trucks, it should take three to four hours to do clear each route separately.
"When it comes to snow plowing, we like the streets to be as clear as possible," Alex Mikel, streets superintendent, said. "We try to do our best."

At IU, an ongoing battle for a parking spot

September 12, 2013

One of the biggest complaints made on large university campuses today is not about the cost of tuition, lack of instruction from professors or even the exams, but parking. Yes, parking.
Finding a parking spot on a large university campus is as impossible as trying to find a Purdue fan outside of West Lafayette.
While it is understood that most campuses do not offer ample parking spaces to discourage students from leaving the campus during the school year, universities are still ignorant as to how most students actually get to campus – in cars.
