GOSHEN Sharkey retires from county council

Saturday was Dennis Sharkey's last meeting with the Elkhart County Council.
Posted on Dec. 9, 2012 at 12:00 a.m.

GOSHEN — Dennis Sharkey ended his 12-year tenure with the Elkhart County Council this weekend.

Sharkey began serving on the county council in early 2001.

“This was a very, very difficult decision,” he said Saturday. “However, I thought 12 years was enough.”

Tom Stump will leave his spot on the Goshen City Council to fill Sharkey’s seat in January. Stump will be replaced on the city council by Brett Weddell.

Sharkey said he plans to go to Florida after he officially retires but will keep in touch with the members of county council.

The volcano’s slow-moving lava has reached a vacant lot in a rural subdivision but it’s expected to bypass homes. Scientists continue to monitor the lava’s progress and estimate that it could reach a major road in less than two weeks. (AP Photo/U.S. Geological Survey)
