Meet the Editor of the News-Mirror|
Jim Master, editor of the News-Mirror, will be at the Argos and Bourbon Public Libraries once a week starting Wednesday, Aug. 9. Due to not having a local office in either town, the News-Mirror and the public libraries are working together to provide a space where Jim will be available to the public during the following hours: Argos Public Library on Wednesdays from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Bourbon Public Library on Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The public are invited to come and meet with the editor to discuss local events, stories, or any other business that might be of interest to the News-Mirror. The News-Mirror covers events, meetings, and other areas of interest for the towns of Argos and Bourbon.
The Envision Bourbon 2030 Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee has been working with the Michiana Area Council of Governments (MACOG) and Marshall County Economic Development Corporation (MCEDC) to develop the Town’s Comprehensive Plan. A comprehensive plan is the guiding policy document that empowers communities to create a long-term vision, address community challenges, and create solutions that offer better choices for where and how people live, work, and play.
The draft Envision Bourbon 2030 Comprehensive Plan is available for public review. Public comments will be received starting September 11, 2017 through September 25, 2017. We need to hear from you! This Plan will not be successful or meaningful unless it reflects the goals and aspirations from all residents.

Bourbon, Indiana, is located in east central Marshall County in Bourbon Township,
at the junction of State Highway 331 and US 30 in the heart of TROJAN COUNTRY. The town of Bourbon was laid out in 1853 when
it was certain the railroad would be extended to that point.
It took its name from Bourbon Township, which was named after Bourbon County,
Kentucky, the former home of many of the early settlers. According to the 2010 census, Bourbon has a total area of 0.99 square miles.
The Bourbon Community Building-Gymnasium was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2015.
Although Bourbon has experienced phenomenal growth over the years it has maintained the quality of life associated with a small town rural atmosphere. Our motto "Small Town, Big Heart" says it all!
