Alexandria council reads annexation ordinance

ALEXANDRIA — A proposed annexation that would take two businesses into Alexandria moved one step closer to finalization Monday. Alexandria Council President Roger Cuneo said an ordinance went through second reading and is just one reading away from finalization.

The annexation, which would extend Alexandria's border along Ind. 9 nearly to Ind. 128, was initiated by the Kleenco and Kennedy Machine Tool & Die Inc., businesses which wanted access to the city's utilities and sewer.

After a 30-day waiting period, the ordinance will be ready for a final reading.

Instructor, student pilot hurt in Greenwood

GREENWOOD — Police say a flight instructor and a student pilot were hurt when a small plane crashed in a farm field south of Indianapolis.

Greenwood assistant police chief Matthew Fillenwarth says both men were conscious and talking when emergency workers arrived Tuesday morning at the scene a couple miles east of the Greenwood Municipal Airport. Both were taken to hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. Fillenwarth said the plane was from the airport's flight school.

Old county jail up for sale

LEBANON — A central Indiana county's old jail is about to go on the auction block.

The yellow brick building on the courthouse square in downtown Lebanon was the Boone County Jail from 1938 until 1992. It still has operating doors on the cells that once held about 30 prisoners, along with a commercial kitchen and a walk-in vault where evidence was stored.

Key Auctioneers vice president Seth Seaton says he's unsure what the building might sell for in the April 10 auction. Seaton says the building needs a buyer with a vision of turning it perhaps into a restaurant or museum.
