Huntington Parks and Recreation Department is in the process of developing a new master plan. The plan is being developed by Cornerstone PDS of Fishers.
“The reason we are doing a master plan is that it provides an opportunity for public input,” said Steve Yoder, Huntington Parks and Recreation Superintendent.
“It identifies the goals and needs of the community, and provides an active plan for the parks department and City of Huntington to follow to achieve goals,” he said.

With the hallway lined with third, fourth, and fifth graders intently working with tiny parts and large schematics, the lure of vacation was far from anyone’s mind.

There is some question as to how Dave Brooks became a member of The Huntington County TAB’s advertising staff. What isn’t in question is that he loyally served clients in a five-county area for 35 years.
“In 1987, Dave came walking into the doors of The Huntington County TAB, trying to sell radio advertising to us,” former TAB co-owner Russ Grindle said. “Who knew it would turn into a career of 35 years for him? He was working at an area radio station, and we have never determined if he was trying to sell advertising to The TAB or looking for a job.”

To master the instrument, becoming one of the five or 10 percent to rise to the level of expert takes an even higher level of grit. No one knows this better than Huntington’s Al McCurdy, who defied all those odds not once, but twice.
