Matt Hurley, Democratic Party candidate for mayor, shakes hands with his rival, Mike Ochs, the Republican nominee, after Thursday’s forum at the Park Theatre Civic Centre.
North Vernon's mayoral candidates showed their differences during Thursday's North Vernon City Election Political Forum at the Park Theatre Civic Centre.

Several city council candidates also produced some fireworks during the lively event that was broadcast life on WJCP Radio.

Matt Hurley, the Democratic hopeful for the city's top executive spot, defended Tripton Place, the proposed senior apartments for the Fifth Street burn zone. Mike Ochs, the Republican, called for the city to partner with Jennings Water and to tighten its belt.

The mayoral candidates, as well as those vying for five city council seats, presented their views on multiple hot button issues that often focused on Stellar Community projects.

"We spend too much money foolishly," said Ochs, who is currently the at-large city councilor. "We need to tone it down a bit. I'm not satisfied with the way our tax dollars are being spent."

False alarm
False alarm
A fire engine is parked in front of Walmart as firefighters respond to a fire alarm Friday evening. Shoppers, who were evacuated from the store, wait outside underneath the awning to stay dry from the falling rain at the time. The incident turned out to be a false alarm, one of many that Jennings County firefighters deal with on an almost daily basis-Staff Photo by Sharon Hamilton
