July 11, 2023 | Who's in jail in Allen County?

Hey Locals,

Three Rivers Festival is in full swing, and local spirit is high. We hope you've had a chance to stroll the Chalk Walk and support some art vendors this weekend. There's lots of news breaking this week, too!

In our Talk of the Week, we share an independent report analyzing who's in jail in Allen County, as plans for a larger, expensive county jail progress.

We also have multiple local food updates. You might have seen our story on Saturday about Mercado's owners opening a new pizza joint on The Landing. In this week's Local Spotlight, we also feature the chef behind Seoul Garden, Sophia Kim, in an original story. She immigrated to the U.S. from South Korea about 15 years ago and started the restaurant to support her family. Speaking of that...

This month: We're teaming up with Seoul Garden at Union Street Market to bring all paid subscribers to The Local a special BOGO deal, good for anything on the menu. (Buy one, get a second item of equal or lesser value free!)  Become a paid subscriber for just $3 this month to claim your offer!

Need another reason to upgrade? Seoul Garden's Co-Owner Scott Fergusson says he wants to do as much as possible to support our mission to bring Fort Wayne more local, independent journalism. So to up the ante, Seoul Garden is offering a free order of dumplings to anyone who visits their booth at Union Street Market in July, and uses the QR code there to become a paid subscriber on the spot. Thanks, Scott, Sophia, and team!

Now, let's get started!
