Tipton City Court Judge Lewis Daily Harper died Aug. 14 at the age of 85. Judge Harper became city judge in 1997; he also worked as a real estate broker.

The Tipton native served as a B-24 Bomber pilot in World War II from December 1942 to October 1945. He belonged to many community organizations, including American Legion Post #46 and the Fraternal Order of Police.

He is survived by his wife, Wilma Doris Garmon; children Stephen Harper (Sandy) and Linda Boyer; stepchildren Teresa O'Rear, Sherry Townsend, and Alan O'Rear; brother Elbert Harper; sister Wilda Robison; and grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Harper's successor will be named by the governor; in the meantime, Tipton Circuit Judge Thomas R. Lett will serve in the City Court. He was temporarily transferred there by a Tuesday order from the Indiana Supreme Court.

  2. We won!!!! It was a long expensive battle but we did it. I just wanted people to know it is possible. And if someone can point me I. The right direction to help change the way the courts look as grandparents as only grandparents. The courts assume the parent does what is in the best interest of the child...and the court is wrong. A lot of the time it is spite and vindictiveness that separates grandparents and grandchildren. It should not have been this long and hard and expensive...Something needs to change...

  4. The Supreme Court is very proud that they are Giving a billion dollar public company from Texas who owns Odyssey a statewide monopoly which consultants have said is not unnecessary but worse they have already cost Hoosiers well over $100 MILLION, costing tens of millions every year and Odyssey is still not connected statewide which is in violation of state law. The Supreme Court is using taxpayer money and Odyssey to compete against a Hoosier company who has the only system in Indiana that is connected statewide and still has 40 of the 82 counties despite the massive spending and unnecessary attacks
