With three years of Indiana Central News under my belt, I know I'm on the right track for continued success with my local news site.
There have been some conflicts along the way; However, things are running smoothly most of the time for ICN.
Feb. 18, 2015 is the date I officially launched this website. I felt it was a good fit for the community from the get-go and have enjoyed going out to gather the news around my hometown more than anything else. The police scene is a large part of my site's content, but I do try to fit lighter news in from time to time.
For those who've followed ICN from the beginning to those who've just tuned in, thanks for your support. Please take a quick look back at the hard-hitting news delivered consistently through the past three years --- and continue to follow ICN for all the stories that are on the way for years to come. I enjoy reporting in Terre Haute very much and have worked hard to deliver quality local news content every day. I can imagine continuing this site into old age!

Since the blanket of snow melted, an obvious problem is exposed across the county.
Everywhere I drove today, including along my own front yard, I noticed properties and roadways littered with trash --- tossed out from vehicles and pedestrians.
A pile of trash I noticed all over a bench in front of a busy shopping area on S. US 41, as I sat at a red light, got me thinking to check my own curb when I returned home. I later picked up a prescription bottle, cold medication packaging, a wine bottle, candy wrappers and a couple of plastic pop bottles.
People here complain that Vigo County has an image problem. If everyone took responsibility for what is right in front of them today, the litter problem would improve significantly. Those responsible for the trash won't likely change their ways, so we all need to step up and help take care of it.
Business owners and their employees -- as well as local citizens -- need to take notice of how this litter everywhere is a reflection of our community.
