Jeff Souder thought perhaps he didn’t deserve to join a select group of Warren residents who have received the town’s prestigious Samuel Jones Pioneer Award. But when 2017 award recipient Wendel Brown said, “We had to go clear to East of Chicago to get this guy,” Souder knew he had been tapped for the 30th annual award.

“I’m very honored and very surprised,” Souder said. “What an honor it is to join such a group here in Warren.”

Humane shelter open again

The Huntington County Humane Shelter has reopened after a viral outbreak closed its doors for over three weeks.

In late May, the shelter impounded 13 dogs from a home, which led to an outbreak of canine parvovirus. To contain and eradicate the highly contagious virus, the shelter closed on May 24.

After shelter staffers administered vaccines for the virus and thoroughly cleaned the facility with bleach, the shelter reopened on June 18.
