City By City Report for May 21, 2014

Here's a recap of our City By City report from Wednesday, May 21, 2014:

South Bend

You might see heavy smoke coming from the airport this morning. That's because crews are doing live fire training. The federal aviation administration requires the training once a year. Public safety crews will be out from 8 to noon.


Tonight's Brew and View at the State Theatre in downtown South Bend is "Ferris Bueller's Day Off". But you don't have to play hooky to see this one. It starts at 7 p.m. and costs $3 to get in. Beer and wine will be available for those 21 and over.

Benton Township

Lake Michigan College in Benton Township is about to offer its very first bachelor's degree. Starting this fall, students will be able to get a Bachelor of Applied Science in energy production and distribution management. Until now, the school only offered an associate degree on the topic. LMC is only the second community college in Michigan to offer a bachelor's program. It has only been legal for them to do so, since 2012.


Anyone over 60 can get a free lunch Wednesday in Elkhart County. The Council on Aging is inviting all residents over the age of 60 to a free picnic at McNaughton Park. Those under 60 are welcome, but will be asked to pay $2.50 for lunch. The picnic runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.


Sephora at University Park Mall in Mishawaka has announced Pet Refuge as its charity of choice. Now through November 30, shoppers have the option to donate $1-5 to the shelter when they check out. Sephora sells makeup, fragrance, skin care and other products for both women and men.

Starke County

A new bridge will soon be named after the county's most decorated veteran. Private First Class Frank Ono fought in World War Two. President Bill Clinton gave a medal of honor to his surviving relatives in the year 2000. Our reporting partners at WKVI say the bridge on U.S. 35, just south of U.S. 30, will be dedicated in Ono's honor this Saturday. The ceremony begins at 1:30 p.m.
