Alternate options bids, including various types of carpeting, new entry doors to replace the original wooden doors on the 100-year-old building, reroofing of an existing flat roof, changing fluorescent ceiling lights from T-12 lamps to T-8 lamps and ballasts, and expansion of a plaza area on the new south entrance total an additional $77,734. Krouse also recommended allowances for other repairs to the existing building and to establish an amount for the erection of structural steel that has been donated by two area industries, for an additional $51,000. He also added soft costs such as professional fees, printing costs,

insurance, equipment, cost of issuance and contingencies for a total of $485,500. Krouse said area subcontractors listed in Signature’s bid include Knott Excavating of LaOtto, Todd Masonry of Wolcottiville, Pranger Enterprise of Ashley and Weller Electric of Garrett, among others. The Garrett Common Council approved a $1.5 million bond to fund the project at its June 18 meeting, reduced from a requested $1.8 million.

Fire destroys garage, damages home By Sue Carpenter GARRETT — No one was injured by a fire early morning Monday that destroyed a garage and vehicle and heavily damaged a home in the 700 block of East King Street. The Garrett Fire Department responded to a call from a neighbor at 1:01 a.m., said Assistant Fire Chief Chad Werkheiser. Firefighters arrived four minutes later and found a car and detached garage fully involved in flames, which extended to the residence. They brought the fire under control in about 20 minutes. The home’s occupants, Ben Rollins and family, were awakened by a

neighbor and exited the structure safely. The family pets also were uninjured. The garage and vehicle were total losses. Werkheiser estimated damage at $60,000 to structures, $10,000 to contents and $15,000 to the vehicle. A neighboring home sustained heat damage to its siding. The cause of the fire is under investigation, Werkheiser said. Firefighters remained at the scene until 4:30 a.m. The Garrett Fire Department was assisted at the scene by Garrett Police Department, DeKalb EMS and Auburn Fire Department. The Corunna Fire Department provided stand-by coverage.

Railroad offers to pay for removing rusty bridge By Aaron Organ AUBURN — CSX Railroad has offered to pay for removing a corroded, historic iron-truss bridge on C.R. 75 over the railroad tracks, east of St. Joe. The railroad’s propsed agreement was presented to the DeKalb County Commissioners late last week. Just days earlier, the DeKalb County Council voted down a request from the commissioners to pay $72,725 for a design and engineering plan for removing the bridge. Considered a “select” bridge on the Indiana Historic Bridge inventory list, the bridge is in “very poor condition,” according to a consultant. Monday, representatives of USI Consultants told the commissioners that railroad officials see the bridge as a safety concern. The CSX proposal lays out plans for the railroad to handle dismantling the bridge and to reimburse the county for creating cul-desacs in the road on either side of the span. The project that would cost upward of $300,000, according to the consultants.

The bridge would be stored on county property and potentially placed on a trail system just south of St. Joe when federal funding comes through, the plan says. Monday, commissioners expressed concern with the bridge and the liability the county takes on by keeping it open. They cited fears of a section or the entirety of the bridge falling onto a passing train. Commissioners also raised questions about how residents in the area would travel without the bridge. Building a bridge on the site or nearby could run nearly $3 million, the consultants said. The existing bridge cannot support more than the weight of a pickup truck, the consultants said, and residents must travel some six miles to find a suitable bridge to cross the tracks. A traffic study has shown 43 vehicles a day use the span. The commissioners will present another request to the council for funding the $72,000 design plan, with the railroad paying for the project. The railroad’s proposed agreement calls for a contract to be adopted

before the end of the year. Also Monday, commissioners said they will consider a request from the county Plan Commission to change the addresses of select homes on C.R. 40-A, or Wesley Road, inside the Auburn city limits. Plan director Clint Knauer said sections of the road change from Wesley Road to C.R. 40-A and back again several times, and addresses have both odd and even numbers on the same side of the road. The mix-up results from annexations to the city, Knauer explained. The commissioners tabled the request under the assumption that at some point in the future, the remaining county land will be annexed into the city, and readdressing will be handled then. Commissioners approved a request from the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival to use county property for a Kiddie Cruiser Activity event Aug. 30 and 31. The festival will stage the event on a lawn west of the jail. It will include a bungee activity, rock wall and other games in conjunction with the ACD Festival.

KPC Media launches media-rich community news website FORT WAYNE — KPC Media Group Inc. has launched a new website to deliver arts, entertainment and community news to its audience in the greater Fort Wayne area. features story-driven new and traditional media with content from the Times Community Publications and Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly, which are owned and published by KPC Media Group.

We’re making a point to introduce you to people, places and events you might not otherwise come in contact with in an effort to help demystify those narratives.” Each week, Schnurr will release new videos and photo galleries featuring topics of local interest, beginning with “Phresh,” a look at Fort Wayne artist Theoplis Smith’s art brand Phresh Laundry. “INFortWayne will explore our community with professionally produced multimedia that is unlike anything else being produced in the region,” said KPC Media Group digital media director Kelly Lynch. “KPC has invested

not only in quality media production, but also in local talent, making for an opportunity to showcase our region’s stories meaningfully and creatively.” In cooperation with Times Community Publications editor Garth Snow, also will feature content from weekly neighborhood newspapers Aboite & About, the Dupont Valley Times, the St. Joe Times and the East Allen County Times. Business-focused content will come from Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly in cooperation with editor Barry Rochford.

However, we also need more help.” Coaches are recruiting workers for the event, or those interested can sign up at the athletic office

or by calling 357-4116. Volunteers need not have a student or athlete in the high school. Volunteers can designate their time to be donated to a specific athletic team, the athletic department or any other school group. Ticket booth workers and people who can help park cars are needed. All money raised goes to Garrett students through their athletic teams. Most of the money is spent on uniforms and specialized practice equipment. Volunteers do not need to have a student or athlete in the high school. Those available to help are asked to contact any head coach or the athletic office at 357-4116.

9U Storm win BPA world series State police plan BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — The Indiana Storm age 9-and-under travel team won the Battle Creek Baseball Players Association World Series held from July 18-20. The Storm (41-9) are based out of the Auburn area and have players from Steuben, Dekalb and Noble counties. To reach the World Series, teams had to win a BPA-sponsored tournament at some point throughout this summer. The Storm won four of those tourneys: the 2013 Bat Wars, the Indiana State Games, the OTS/ BPA Spring Fling, and the On-Turf BPA State Tournament. Teams from around the country are then sorted into three different regionally-based world series: North (played in Battle Creek), Central (played in Owensboro, Ky.), and South (played in Murfreesboro, Tenn.). Fourteen teams qualified for the North World Series. The Storm split their two pool play games, beating the Hardknocks Land Sharks from Granger 9-4 and losing to the Twin City Prospects from St. Joseph, Mich., 10-5. This landed the Storm a No. 9 seed and a difficult route to the championship. After beating the eighth-seeded West Michigan Black Sox from


Kalamazoo 14-2, the Storm pulled away late from the No. 1 seed Southwest Michigan Sluggers Gold from Niles for a 9-3 win. In the semifinals, the Storm’s five-run first inning set the right tone en route to an 8-2 victory over fourthseeded Battle Creek Shamrocks. In the championship, the Storm’s offense exploded for a 15-5 win over the No. 2 seed HBF Maroons from Jackson, Mich. As part of the World Series opening ceremony, the teams competed in a variety of skills competitions. The Storm’s Graham Kelham from LaOtto won the home run derby by hitting two home runs. None of the other 23 9U entrants hit a single homer. The Storm’s around-the-horn team of Kelham, Fremont’s Ethan Bock, Corunna’s Bryce Dobson and Albion’s Carter Gilbert placed second, losing by less than two seconds. Fremont’s Robert Skorupski tied for second in the bunting competition. During the regular season the Indiana Storm also won their league championship in the Northeast Division On-Turf Baseball League. Register now for
