Known for its slogan, "There’s more than corn in Indiana,” the Indiana Beach amusement and water park will not reopen this spring. 

The northwest Indiana park has been open almost 100 years. Local officials in Monticello were told about the closing Tuesday afternoon.

In a statement, Indiana Beach says that, “despite significant effort and a great deal of investment in infrastructure and rides,” the operations did not see a boost in revenue.

Apex Parks Group owns more than a dozen facilities around the country and purchased the park in 2015.

According to a post on the Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm's Facebook page on Sunday, Dec. 22, the Teichman family indicated the farm is going up for sale. 

Bill Teichman from Tree-Mendus Fruit contracted Eastern Equine Encephalitis earlier this year.

For years, the farm was home to the annual cherry pit spitting contest.

Center for Educational Performance and Information via Facebook

DETROIT (AP) — State data shows that more than 200 of Michigan's private schools have closed over the past decade.

Many private school operators are blaming a shrinking student population, fewer resources and rising costs.

The state's Center for Educational Performance and Information found that about 112,000 Michigan students attended private schools last year. It's a 14% decrease from the 130,000 students in private schools roughly a decade ago.
