    SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Northern Indiana lawmakers are calling into question Gov. Eric Holcomb’s decision against imposing new tolls on the state’s interstate highways, while allowing the Indiana Toll Road’s private operator to significantly boost rates for large trucks using that highway. Democratic Sen. Karen Tallian of Portage tells the South Bend Tribune that the situation is unfair because only the communities in northern Indiana along the Toll Road will have the burden of higher tolls, while all parts of the state will benefit from the toll money. The Republican governor announced in September that the operator of the Toll...
  • Daniel Flynn: Before Jane Fonda Called Trump Hitler, She Called Jim Jones A Hero

    Jane Fonda compared Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler at the Women’s Media Awards on Thursday. “If you’ve read anything about the rise of the Third Reich and Adolf Hitler, you will see the parallels,” Fonda maintained. “Attacking the media is the first step in the move towards fascism.” Fonda, given her wild misjudgment of the only American to systematically murder scores of his fellow countrymen in an actual concentration camp, strikes as the wrong messenger bearing the wrong message here. Before Jane Fonda saw Donald Trump as Adolf Hitler, she saw Jim Jones as a hero. “We are familiar with...

    The report provided numerous examples of fraudsters exploiting the food stamp program to fund terrorist activities. A grocery store owner in Chicago was imprisoned in 2006 for stealing $1.4 million through food stamp fraud and aiding the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. In 2010, two Somali store owners in Michigan pleaded guilty to food stamp fraud and running an unlicensed money transfer business that sent money to “hot spots” in the Middle East and Africa. In Indianapolis, a ring of convenience stores bought food stamps from customers for 50 cents on the dollar. The ringleader was arrested on a return flight from...
  • Law enforcement bracing for more semis on U.S. 20 in LaPorte County as Toll Road fees increase

    LAPORTE — Law enforcement in LaPorte County is preparing for the possibility of an already-congested and dangerous U.S. 20 being overrun with more semi-trucks as drivers avoid the 35 percent cost increase of traveling the Indiana Toll Road. Much of that stretch of highway being down to one lane in each direction for resurfacing adds to the concerns. LaPorte County Sheriff John Boyd said he’s reached out to Indiana State Police to help patrol U.S. 20 if an increase in truck traffic becomes too much for his staff to handle alone. “We’re going to prepare for it,” Boyd said. “We’re...

    An Indiana zoo will soon welcome a lethal addition to its animal kingdom: A black mamba snake. The Indianapolis Zoo is adding the black mamba, which is typically found in southern and eastern Africa, in May 2019. The serpent will join the zoo’s Deserts Dome exhibit, which will feature the black mamba and other exotic snakes, the Associated Press reported. The black mamba is a “fast, nervous, lethally venomous, and when threatened, highly aggressive” reptile, National Geographic reported, which also noted this snake is considered to be the deadliest in the world.The black mamba, which can grow as long as...

ThatÂ’s in addition to nearly 200 residences that...

    An Indiana prosecutor criticized President Trump for his comments Tuesday after police said the man accused of killing an Indianapolis Colts linebacker in a suspected drunk-driving accident was an undocumented immigrant. Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said in a statement that comments politicizing the fatal crash were "ghoulish and inappropriate," The Associated Press reported on Wednesday. Curry said that his office would "vigorously prosecute" the case, according to the AP. “We are disheartened that ghoulish and inappropriate public commentary has politicized this tragedy,” Curry, a Democrat, said. “Much of such commentary, including tweets by the president, fails to acknowledge that...

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities say about two dozen people were sickened by apparently overdosing on drugs in recent days in or around a men's homeless shelter in downtown Indianapolis. Steve Kerr, Wheeler Mission's chief development officer, tells The Indianapolis Star that 17 shelter guests overdosed inside or nearby. He says they're suspected to have taken so-called bath salts, which are chemicals that mimic the effects of cocaine and other powerful drugs.

    Take Interstate 65 south across the Ohio River and you might not notice you've just spent $4. No toll booth stands between the Indiana border and Louisville. Motorists who frequently travel the route likely have a transponder device, with the cost charged automatically to their account. For those without a transponder, a camera captures a license plate photo and the tolling system operator, with access to motor vehicle records, sends a bill to the vehicle's registered owner. As technological advances make highway and bridge tolling easier and more efficient, technology also is delivering more fuel-efficient cars and trucks. The gasoline-tax...

    Vice President Mike Pence walked out on his home-state Indianapolis Colts Sunday when members of the opposing team kneeled for the national anthem, but a report that Colin Kaepernick, the player who started it all, will stand if given another shot in the NFL was quickly dialed back. "I left today's Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem," Pence tweeted.

    The Colts’ players released a statement clarifying why players kneeled during the National Anthem in last week’s game. The announcement comes ahead of Sunday’s prime-time game against the Seattle Seahawks. The statement reads as follows: “Recently, there have been several misperceptions regarding a personal choice made by members of our team to bring awareness to prevailing issues facing our nation. To be clear -- those of us who kneeled did not intend to disrespect our flag, our National Anthem or those who serve our country. We all have family and friends who are servicemen and women. We appreciate and respect...
