  • Honoring Imel
    Portland Street Department employees put up a sign honoring Jack Imel this morning along U.S. 27 on the south side of the city. A Portland native, Imel performed on The Lawrence Welk Show for 25 years, playing the marimba, tap dancing and singing. Each week Welk would ask him how he wanted to be introduced, and Imel would respond, “Just say I’m from Portland, Indiana. ... I love Portland. I always have.” (The Commercial Review/Jack Ronald)
