La PORTE — A La Porte woman wants a county 4-H committee to begin operating in the daylight – and is getting backing from the La Porte County Board of Commissioners.

On Wednesday, the commissioners ordered attorney Shaw Friedman to contact the Purdue Extension Office and request it comply with a recent opinion from Indiana Public Access Counselor Luke Britt. He advised that the 4-H Horse and Pony Committee must follow the state's Open Door Law for meetings – rules a group of local parents claim the board doesn't obey.
