Staff Writer

Whitley County Commissioners have agreed to partner with Parkview Health to purchase a 5-feet-tall, 100-pound ceramic bison that will be on display at different locations around the county in celebration of Indiana’s bicentennial.

Whitley County Human Resources Manager Pam Smith said United Way of Whitley received the information about the celebrative plans through the Indiana Association of United Ways. The state initiative is based on the bison that appears on the state seal.
