COLUMBIA CITY â€” Although some legislative initiatives are coming under fire at the Statehouse, Ind. Gov. Mike Penceâ€™s proposed tax credit for adoptive families is receiving much support.
Pence announced in late December that he wants to make Indiana the nationâ€™s â€śmost pro-adoption stateâ€ť by implementing the tax credit, forming a study committee to explore faith-based and community adoption programs and finding ways to better link the stateâ€™s adoption services.
Dustin and Amanda Petrosky, adoptive parents from Columbia City, are â€śexcitedâ€ť about the news of a state tax incentive.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” January 1 not only marked a new year, it also marked a new season of life for now retired Whitley County Sheriff Deputy Dennis Ruch.
Ruch said goodbye to fellow officers and co-workers and hello to retirement after 25 years of law enforcement service.
â€śItâ€™s been an honor to serve alongside him as an officer, but most importantly, as a friend,â€ť said Mike Christie, an investigator for the Whitley County Prosecutorâ€™s Office and former WCSD deputy.
