Peru Police Department Issues 73 Traffic Citations, Makes 24 Arrests During Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over
Peru, IN - Over a 24-day period, the Peru Police Department issued 73 traffic citations and made 24 arrests during the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over mobilization. Of these arrests, 10 people were arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
About 230 Indiana law-enforcement agencies joined thousands nationwide to increase roving patrols, saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints. Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over is supported with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration funds distributed by the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute.
“Highly visible, data-driven traffic enforcement such as this has been proven to deter impaired driving,” said Officer Keith Smith, the department’s Operation Pull Over coordinator. “Our commitment to enforcing the law and saving lives continues throughout the year.”

I wrote this in August of 1991 when my years on bleachers were winding down, and it's probably been my most repeated essay ever—I put it out there every year whether readers want to see it or not. It's dated, I guess, because it's been a long time, but I still think there's very little that's better than watching your kids be engaged, whether it's in sports, drama, debate, or anything else. There are things I'm sorry for from my active parenting days, things I wish I'd said or done and things I wish I hadn't. But I don't regret one minute of being a spectator.
They're the parents of a player. You'll recognize them because they're the ones carrying umbrellas, rain ponchos, winter coats, a big Thirty-One bag full of blankets, and enough money for the entire family to stuff themselves on popcorn and Spanish hot dogs and nachos because there wasn't enough time for supper before the game.
They bring the weather gear even on a clear night, you'll notice, because although clouds may burst with bucketfuls of rain or snow or both, the parents won't have the option of going home or even to the car. It doesn't matter if everyone else leaves the stands--as long as the players are on the field, their parents are in the bleachers.
She's the mother of a player. You'll recognize her because she's the one whose chin wobbles and whose eyes get big when someone screams at the player she belongs to. She's the one who only claps politely when her son's name is called in the team lineup because she doesn't want anyone teasing her about being unduly biased.
Who wants a heaping slice of this taco lasagna? This taco casserole recipe just uses a handful of ingredients and it’s a huge hit with the family!
This is one of those easy weeknight recipes that the entire family gets excited about when they see it come out of the oven, all steamy and cheesy and gooey.
So, give it a try and let us know what you think!

Fort Wayne, IN – An in-depth study by Better Business Bureau finds that, while consumers may write fewer checks in this era of electronic financial transactions, fake check scams are on the rise. Fake checks are used in a variety of frauds, from employment scams to prize and sweepstakes fraud. In all cases, victims deposit the check and send money back to scammers. BBB warns consumers to be on guard against these serious and pervasive frauds and their perpetrators.
The investigative study-- “Don't Cash That Check: Better Business Bureau Study Shows How Fake Check Scams Bait Consumers” -- looks at how fake checks dupe consumers. It digs into the scope of the problem, who is behind it, and the need for law enforcement and consumer education to address the issue.
