Looking For Weekend Activities in October?

Looking for something to do with the kids on the weekends?  Obviously you should bring them to the READ Jr. Story Hour at 11 a.m. on the first and third Saturday of each month.  Anubis would be upset with me if I didn't mention this first.

The Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum has several train events scheduled through October:  Fall Harvest trains on 9/29 & 10/13; Pumpkin trains on 10/6 & 10/20; and their Halloween train on 10/27.  For more information and ticket prices visit their website at Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum..

October 5, 2012 - Just found a new listing of great things to do with the kids on the weekends.  Visit this site to see a listing of October activities in Winamac at the Tippecanoe River State Park

We'll try to keep you up to date with upcoming holiday type activities as we learn about them.

Register to Vote

Register to vote, make sure your current address matches your voter registration address, and VOTE in November! Voter Registration closes for the 2012 General Election on Tuesday, October 9.  If you haven't registered, you can pick up a voter registration form at the the library.

You can check your voter registration and polling location at anytime at or by calling 1-866-IN-1-VOTE.

I tried the website listed and it works great; just make sure when you do the search that you don't use your nickname or it won't find you. Once I entered my first name as it appears on my license everything was fine.

No Smoking On North Judson Town Property

(The following article was "lifted" from WKVI (  Thank you Ben (and sorry I don't know your last name.)

By: Ben
Published: September 7th, 2012

The town of North Judson’s no-tobacco ordinance is now in effect, prohibiting smoking or any other form of tobacco use in municipal buildings or properties, including parks. Clerk-Treasurer Donna Henry says the ordinance prohibits smoking and tobacco use on the premises of municipal properties or within eight feet of their entrances.

The ordinance also prohibits smoking in town parks and their park shelters or within 15 feet of the shelters.

The North Judson Town Council held the first and second readings of the no-tobacco ordinance at their meeting on Aug. 20, and Clerk-Treasurer Donna Henry says the council held the final reading on the ordinance at their meeting on Sept. 4.

The ordinance is more restrictive than the state’s Smoke Free Air Law, but only applies to municipal properties.

A new website has been launched to help you find more information on how to make your environmental assessment payment and recycling in Starke County.

Visit where the hours for the Starke County Environmental Management District are listed, as well as the location and more information on district events. Also, learn how to recycle the items that are otherwise difficult to properly dispose of.

There is also a section on precycling, which is a process in reducing the waste of what we produce to help reduce the amount we need to recycle.

Visit the website for all of that information or call the Starke County Environmental Management District at 772-7865.
