With snow predicted the American Heart Association encourages Hoosiers to protect their hearts while moving snow.  Don’t drink alcoholic beverages before or immediately after shoveling, Be aware of the dangers of hypothermia – dress in layers of warm clothing.  It’s also critical for people to recognize the signs of a heart attack and to call 9-1-1 immediately if they experience any of those signs.

Elwood residents won’t be swimming this summer at the Mary Beth Dunnichay Aquatic Center – more likely than not according to the Herald Bulletin – as city officials figure out what repairs it needs and whether that would be more economical than building a new facility.  The project now is being turned over to the Elwood Redevelopment Commission.

Full for Saturday – shortly after the WLBC interview yesterday, all available free microchip sessions were filled up by Muncie Animal Care and Services for this Saturday’s event at the Fieldhouse.  There will be no walk up’s due to time constraints, and COVID distancing.
