Opening Arguments


Boy, Indianapolis is sure on a roll. First a second Dunkin' Donuts and now this:

INDIANAPOLIS - When you hear a siren, you know what to look for; a police car, a fire truck, or an ambulance. 24-Hour News 8 has exclusively learned that Indianapolis is about to take charge of something completely different.

While it is not something you'd expect in Indianapolis. In the next week or so, Marion County expects to take delivery of a hovercraft.

It would be used in situations too difficult for traditional rescue equipment, but the hovercraft has raised a few eyebrows.

Wouldn't that be the coolest thing to take for a spin on the St. Marys. Or through Foster Park, for that matter. The craft is even built in Terre Haute, by the way.

My brother used to work for Neoteric in Terre Haute after he graduated from Rose Hulman. He used to build and race hovercraft and has one of his own. They're a great toy. It's like flying on a magic carpet.
