  • DNR officer asks people to leave fawns alone

    PERRY COUNTY - Indiana Conservation Officer Joe Lackey, on the way to a call about a supposedly abandoned fawn Thursday, asked that Perry Countians not touch or otherwise bother young deer or other wildlife babies they may come across this spring and summer. In the vast majority of cases, the mother deer hasn't abandoned its baby, but is nearby, Lackey said.

    Handling the fawn makes it more likely the mother will leave the area or refuse to allow the fawn to nurse due to the scent of humans.

  • Huber places 3rd in state

    INDIANAPOLIS - Perry Central senior Nick Huber turned in the highest finish by any Perry Countian in 52 years as he placed third in the 300-meter intermediate hurdles at the IHSAA boys state track meet Saturday.

    Huber broke his own school record as he ran that race in 38.62 seconds.

    He did that despite running in the second of three heats. His fastest time of the season would have put him in the fastest heat, among the nine best seeds, but seeds were based on regional times, where Huber was still slowed slightly by an ankle injury.
