STATE SENATE SEAT
FORT WAYNE — A county councilman in northeastern Indiana has been selected to fill the seat of the outgoing Republican leader of the Indiana Senate. Allen County Councilman Justin Busch defeated Parkview Health public safety director Tom Rhoades at a Republican caucus in Fort Wayne. Busch is the northeast Indiana director for Republican U.S. Sen. Todd Young and has been an aide to other senators. Senate President Pro Tem David Long of Fort Wayne announced in February that he was stepping down in November. SENT: 130 words.
— TOWN MARSHAL ARRESTED: Prosecutors are asking a judge to lock up a former Indiana town marshal until his trial on charges that he allegedly took medication from a home while in uniform.
— TIMBER REVENUES: Fifteen Indiana counties are getting a share of more than $210,000 raised through timber sales at state forests. The Indiana Department of Natural resources says the counties will use about $63,000 of that revenue to give a boost to 116 rural and volunteer fire departments, particularly to improve their wildland firefighting capabilities.
