INDIANAPOLIS - A northeastern Indiana family farm is receiving a preservation award from Indiana Landmarks and Indiana Farm Bureau.
The two organizations announced Monday the Feightner Farm near Kendallville will receive the 2014 John Arnold Award for Rural Preservation on Farmer's Day Wednesday at the Indiana State Fair.
Mark and Donna Feightner run the 125-acre farm about 30 miles northwest of Fort Wayne.
Mark Feightner's great-grandfather founded the farm in 1903, and the couple took over the farm from his great aunt in 1991.
They've been rehabbing the structures and farming while working other full-time jobs. Mark Feightner is the fourth generation on the farm, where the couple harvests corn and soybeans.
Award program coordinator Tommy Kleckner says the couple adapted the farm's historic buildings to new uses and practice environmental consciousness.
Two young girls were killed when the car they were riding in was hit from behind on a southern Indiana highway Friday afternoon.
A man is in serious condition he was shot multiple times at a gas station on Indianapolis' north side Saturday evening.
Time is ticking on our warm and dry days.
The stakes are pretty high for the Colts (2-4), who are one game out of the AFC South lead.
