Disclosure of extra expenses.  80,000 hours in overtime paid by Delaware County in the past 10 months as the Health Department worked to get the population vaccinated.  Positive COVID-19 cases have plummeted, as has the number of people seeking a vaccine.  The local health department plans to gradually decrease hours devoted to giving those shots.

The Farm Festival is today and tomorrow at the Muncie Fairgrounds from 8:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. each day.  There are food-fundraisers, lots of exhibits about Ag, and public safety – and don’t be alarmed if you see the IU Lifeline helicopter landing – it’s there for the kids.

They call it March Madness for a lot of reasons – one, is the craziness and shortness of prep-time for the teams.  BSU women’s coach Bray Sallee seemed to say, it’s not a problem… They will play their first round game on the road at Marquette in Milwaukee, Wis. on Wednesday at 8 pm ET, on 92-5FM, 1340AM, and the free stream.

The Muncie St. Patrick’s Day parade is back – Thursday, line up starts at 4:30 p.m. in the Central high school parking lot, and the parade starts at 5 p.m.  One of the features:  the unofficial world’s tallest leprechaun: area resident, Paul Troxell.

In a press release yesterday, it was explained, “Ball State University men’s basketball head coach James Whitford will not return for a 10th season.”
