    South Bend Tribune ^ | 6/28/16 | Chistian Shekler
    SOUTH BEND — A convicted drunken driver will serve up to 27 months in prison for a January crash that left a veteran South Bend firefighter with a severe head injury, just three months short of his planned retirement. Oswaldo Mendez, 40, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a single count of driving while intoxicated, causing serious bodily injury, for a crash that left Mike Kowalski in a temporary coma before he was transferred to a nursing home. With the 27-month prison term, St. Joseph Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Hurley ordered a punishment just shy of the maximum 2 1/2-year...

    This week Americans were reminded yet again of the growing jihadist problem in the U.S. The first case deals with two California men that tried to join ISIS and who were convicted Tuesday of “conspiracy to aid a foreign terrorist organization.” The Times of Israel shows the motivation behind the two men: The FBI affidavit said the men shared their support for the Islamic State in conversation and on social media, sharing photos of “unbelievers” being beheaded and expressing wishes to die as “martyrs.” Elhuzayel [one of the convicted men] had sworn allegiance to the leader of IS on a...

    If you believe the federal government is too large and powerful, you’re in what our current president calls “the cult of small government.” That’s what he said in a speech last week in Elkhart, Indiana, in which his aim was “to bust this myth of crazy, liberal government spending.” Say again? “I am not making this stuff up,” insisted Mr. Obama, who has increased America’s national debt by nearly $10 trillion – more than all his predecessors combined. A quick look at the National Debt Clock will scare the pants off anyone not put into a hypnotic trance by the...

    The White House and lawmakers on Tuesday refrained from condemning a deadly Israeli attack on Gaza-bound ships carrying humanitarian aid. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs would not go much further than a United Nations Security Council resolution that condemned the loss of life without criticizing Israel’s actions. Gibbs echoed the resolution calling for the U.N. investigation of the incident to be “prompt, impartial, credible and transparent.” At least 10 civilians were killed in the attack, and many were wounded. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was scheduled to visit President Barack Obama at the White House on Tuesday, but he...

The firm runs a 157-mile stretch of highway that runs across northern Indiana from Illinois to Ohio. California’s state engineers’ union says it’s a horrible investment that sinks government employees’ money into a project that, ironically, is hostile to government employees. The toll-road company is the first of what fund managers anticipate will be more investments in infrastructure and transportation projects as the $291 billion system broadens its reach into those...

If you listened to him over these last furious hours, you heard him mention the “yawning cavern of insecurity” that motivates Donald Trump and other bullies. Cruz should take up spelunking. He’s obviously fascinated by unfathomable depths, and with his loss in Indiana on Tuesday, his candidacy for the presidency is finished, giving him a whole lot of extra time. A new hobby is definitely in order.

And according to our March survey, at least 22 Republicans aren't sure or wouldn't say. Newly minted Indiana GOP nominee Todd Young hasn’t said anything we could find about whether he'd support Trump. Only one Republican senator — Sen. Ben Sasse (Neb.) — has said clearly that he won't be on Team Trump.

Because Indiana Democrats allocate delegates proportionally, the close race between the two candidates ensures that Sanders will capture only a small net delegate gain, leaving him still well behind Clinton in the race for support.

With about 43 percent of the vote in, Trump was projected to beat Cruz by about 2o points, 54 percent to 35 percent. Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who had struck a deal with Cruz to effectively concede the Hoosier State, was winning less than 10 percent of the vote. Trump was on track to win most — if not all — of Indiana's 57 delegates, significantly easing his...
