    Eric Harris, Film Review

    Some may have seen the preview for “Immortals” and been excited to see the next “300” since the previews boasted that it was from the producer of that stylized, violent Greek action film. Viewers going in for a movie like “300” will likely be pleased by elements of this film, but “Immortals” is trying for something a bit different. “Immortals” may be produced by someone involved with “300,” but, more importantly, it is directed by Tarsem Singh.

  • Here’s a TIP: Fight poaching by using hotline

    INDIANAPOLIS – Licensed, ethical hunters know the rules and play by them, but poachers don’t.

    Hunting season increases the likelihood that law-abiding hunters will encounter poaching, which is the illegal taking of fish, game or non-game wildlife.
    When that happens, DNR law enforcement urges hunters to use the TIP hotline to file a complaint. TIP is an acronym for Turn in a Poacher or Polluter. Firearms season for deer runs Nov. 12-27. 
    Anyone can use the TIP hotline but hunters are more likely to witness violations.
