An Important Message From Mark: While our office experienced only minor smoke damage during Monday's fire, it was nothing compared to the tragedy that befell our neighbors across the street. Our heart goes out to them. We echo the sentiments of Mayor Mike Bettice, “My prayers are with the individuals impacted by this tragedy. I am grateful to the many first responders from around the area who worked to limit the spread of the fire.

For anyone wishing to help the families who've been displaced, an account has been set up at MainSource Bank in Batesville and is accepting monetary donations on behalf of the families affected from Monday’s fire. If you choose to donate online, a GoFundMe account has also been set up and is being circulated on Facebook. https://www.gofundme.com/families-homeless-due-to-fire. In addition, the city says the main need is for monetary donations which can be made at the Memorial Building between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM weekdays.
