Corporals Glen Roach and Don Magnuson were awarded Officers of the Fourth Quarter for 2013, being recognized for their actions in two separate incidents.
Cpl. Roach, while on routine patrol, observed a suspicious vehicle located in a drive-thru at a McDonalds. It was not moving, as other motorists had to go around the vehicle. It was discovered that the driver was asleep. Cpl. Roach also noticed a handgun lying on the floor board. After removing the driver from the vehicle a further search was made of the vehicle in which marijuana and several pills of ecstasy were found. It was also learned that the suspect was a convicted felon in possession of a handgun.

Mishawaka's Code Enforcement Department would like to take this opportunity to thank those citizens who continue to maintain their sidewalks by regularly removing snow from them. Snow shoveling can be a chore however sidewalks are considered a public right-of-way and there are many people who utilize them. Snow accumulation on sidewalks is especially hazardous to children and the elderly.
Please be neighborly! Be mindful of your neighbors who may be elderly or physically unable to shovel their walks and drives. An act of kindness goes a long way.
Christmas is a joyous time of year for many families, but for some, who have trouble paying their rent and utilities every month, it’s just a reminder of how bad things are. No money for a Christmas meal or coats and shoes for their children, let alone the toys they would like to buy. Year after year, this community steps in to help these families by donating to The Salvation Army Christmas Campaign.
