"Car collides with parked car on Main Street"

Emergency responders were on the scene in downtown Madison Monday night following a traffic collision.
According to Madison Police officers, a vehicle traveling east on Main Street crossed into the opposite lane and struck an SUV parked in front of 128 East Main Street at approximately 11:15 p.m. Monday. Two people were seated in the SUV at the time of the collision.
Madison Fire Chief Bill DeVries said fire crews were called to the scene as a precaution after one of the vehicles began making a hissing noise. DeVries said the vehicles were separated safely.
Police officers on the scene said alcohol or drugs did not play a factor in the collision, and the incident was “just an accident”. Debris and leaked fluids were cleared from the scene. No injuries were reported in the collision.

"Sheriff's Office receives unclaimed property check"

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller made an appearance at the Jefferson County Courthouse Monday morning to present a check to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.
The check, valued at $1,566, was presented as part of the Attorney General’s office’s efforts to return unclaimed property to rightful owners and heirs in Indiana. The check to the Sheriff’s office is part of $88 million returned to Hoosiers in 2015.
Zoeller encouraged residents to search for their names on the database. “Everybody who ever finds unclaimed property says ‘I had no idea.’ So if you think that it can’t be you, you’re exactly the kind of person that probably has unclaimed property,” he said.
The Attorney General said compared to his typical job duties the unclaimed property work is a nice change of pace. “This is the most fun the Attorney General is allowed to have,” he said. “A lot of the things I do are not as nice as handing out a check. I’m usually in the building to sue somebody.”
Indiana’s unclaimed property database holds more than $400 million in unclaimed assets. To search your name on the database, visit www.IndianaUnclaimed.gov.

"June wellness challenge ready to roll"

It’s time to get Madison moving. The Madison America’s Best Communities team, in collaboration with the Heritage Trail Conservancy, King’s Daughters’ Health, and the Envision Jefferson County Healthy Communities Initiative, are challenging residents to join in making Madison a more active and healthy community during the month of June and help reach a community goal of 30 million steps in 30 days.
From June 1 through June 30, area residents of all ages living or working in Madison and Jefferson County are encouraged to track their exercise: walking, running, biking, or other physical activity, for the “Madison Moves!” challenge. Log sheets to track activity can be picked up at City Hall, Visit Madison, Madison Area Chamber of Commerce, Fit for the King, King’s Daughters’ Hospital, Horner Center at Hanover College, Mane Attractions, Red Roaster, The Attic, Cocoa Safari, and Village Lights Bookstore. Log sheets can also be printed at home from www.madisonindiana.com/abc or www.facebook.com/abcmadisonin.
All log sheets will need to be returned by Friday July 8th to one of the designated drop-off sites. Random prize drawings will be held on Monday July 11th for all log sheets which show activity of thirty minutes of daily physical exercise for a minimum of twenty days in June.
The “Madison Moves!” challenge is a part of the 11-month Community Revitalization Plan submitted to the America’s Best Communities competition in November 2015.
