ELKHART — Mayor Rod Roberson won a bet this past weekend, thanks to the Elkhart High School Lions football team.

The bet was made last week, at the virtual Northern Indiana Mayors Roundtable meeting hosted by Roberson, who decided to wear a Lions shirt to mark the team’s first game that Friday. With the new football season starting, there was quite a bit of smack talk between the mayors, one of whom was Mishawaka Mayor Dave Wood, whose high school team was about to visit Rice Field to face the Lions.
