Gary Van Der Noord and the purple martins

Gary Van Der Noord for 40 years has helped tracked the migration of the Purple Martins, a species of swallow that migrates annually from the Amazon basin to the northern United States.

John J. Watkins, The Times

* Purple reigns: Highland man builds his flock of fascinating purple martins, which fly about 5,000 miles every fall from Northwest Indiana to the Amazon Basin. Read about how he became something of a bird whisperer after inheriting the houses from a neighbor in 1975.

* From the community impact to the new wholesaler through which the stores will be supplied, business writer Joseph S. Pete takes a deeper look at what it means to the Region now that Strack & Van Til will remain under local ownership. 

* Be sure to keep an eye out for $106 in coupon values in the Sunday Times.
