            Officials in Pike County have gotten a big check they say will provide a place for new ideas and business to develop.
            The Pike County Entrepreneurship and Tech Center will be a place for recent graduates and students to develop skills and partnerships needed to bring new business to the county.
            Economic Development officials there say the center will be located off the Petersburg exit from I-69 and can be used by any person or any age for a low, monthly rental fee.
            The 1-point-2 million dollar grant will now kick start construction of the facility – it should start in the spring.
            The man who plead guilty on killing three people in a wrong way crash on Interstate 69 in Pike County has his day in the state’s highest court.
            Brian Paquette was sentenced to a total of 50 and a half years for the crash in February of last year. Police said he was high on meth at the time.
            Defense attorneys said at the time they’d appeal, and the court of appeals reversed two of the three convictions, before it went to the Indiana Supreme Court for another hearing Thursday.
            Justices are now weighing the matter – it could be thrown back to a lower court for re-sentencing.
