GOSHEN, Ind. (AP) — A judge has modified his 130-year prison sentence for an Indiana woman accused of killing her children. The Elkhart Truth reports that Circuit Court Judge Michael Christofeno has removed any mental health requirements from 30-year-old Amber Pasztor’s sentence. Pasztor pleaded guilty but mentally ill to two counts of murder in the September 2016 deaths of her 7-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son. Christofeno originally ordered the state mental hospital to evaluate Pasztor and give her mental health treatment if needed before she begins her sentence. The state Department of Corrections and the state Family and Social Services Administration challenged Christofeno’s authority to create such a sentence and said the order was an involuntary mental health commitment.

|Bernie Sanders’ jobs rally in Indy tries to hold Trump accountableWISH-TV / 15 h. 5 min. ago more|
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., chose downtown Indianapolis to kick off his Midwest Pickup Tour multi-state jobs rally. Sanders spoke on Monday afternoon to a large crowd around Monument Circle. Organizers said the movement is designed to keep President Donald Trump accountable for what they call broken promises. Earlier this year Carrier announced a timeline for eliminating 632 jobs at the company’s Indianapolis factory. With those jobs heading to Mexico, Sanders and others say they will try to keep additional companies from following suit. The tour will crisscross the Midwest, making pit stops in Wisconsin, Michigan and Ohio, with a final stop in Pennsylvania. According to the rally organizers, 140,000 workers have received pink slips during President Trump’s first six months in office, as companies continue to ship jobs offshore. They also claimed wages have fallen by 1.4 percent nationwide. But President Trump’s administration tells a different story. According to the Commerce Department, economic growth has accelerated during Trump’s first quarter in office. A Trump supporter who said she wanted to spend time with the crowd spoke with 24-Hour News 8’s Julian Grace. She had this to say: “So far, I see where he’s actually trying to do different things. He tries to do … more better jobs, things like that. He’s turning around the economy, the stock market has been so much better. And if he just wouldn’t have so much resistance, I think would be so much easier.” 24-Hour News 8 spoke to Trump supporters and Sanders supporters, as well as others who came out to the rally. Sanders was joined by Chuck Jones, retired president of United Steelworkers Local 1999 out of Indianapolis, as well as State Sen. David Niezgoski, D-Ind., Linda Hinton, vice president of Communications Workers of America, and Indianapolis City-County Councilor Jared Evans. Sen. Sanders added that he’s working on a plan to ensure companies that outsource American jobs will face consequences to those decisions. “I will be working with your Sen. Joe Donnelly to make certain that those companies across the country who are throwing American workers out on the street … going to Mexico, going to China. They are the last in line to get contracts from the federal government,” said Sanders. Hundreds stood in the rain to listen to the senator from Vermont. After Sanders’ speech came to an end, some appeared pleased with direction. “I really believe he is trying to fix our job situation and the middle class,” said Sanders supporter Chase Brock.

According to a police affidavit, siblings Cheryl Rumsey, 55, and Steven Bailey, 54, both of Evansville, beat up Rumsey’s boyfriend, Paul William Phillips II, 53, of Indianapolis.

Bailey says Rumsey hit Phillips several times and then Bailey joined in, hitting Phillips five or six times with his fists, according to the affidavit. Bailey says when he began hitting Phillips, Phillips fell to the floor. The beating allegedly continued.

SEATTLE (WISH) — An expedition crew has found the wreckage of the USS Indianapolis on the floor of the North Pacific Ocean, more than 70 years after its sinking in 1945. An image shot from a remotely operated vehicle shows what appears to be the painted hull number “35.” Based on the curvature of the hull section, this seems to be the port side of the ship. (Provided Photo/Paul G. Allen) The 13-person crew of the Research Vessel Petrel, led by philanthropist Paul G. Allen, located the World War II cruiser 5,500 meters — that’s nearly 3.5 miles — below the water’s surface, according to a Saturday release from the U.S. Navy. An image shot from a remotely operated vehicle shows what appears to be the painted hull number “35.” Based on the curvature of the hull section, this seems to be the port side of the ship. (Provided Photo/Paul G. Allen) A Japanese submarine torpedoed the USS Indianapolis on the morning of July 30, 1945, sinking the ship with 1,196 sailors and Marines aboard. The ship is said to have sunk within 12 minutes, with around 800 sailors and Marines surviving initially but with no time to use life-saving provisions or send a distress signal. A combination of dehydration, exposure, drowning and shark attacks over the four to five days spent in the open water led to more deaths, with 316 surviving the incident. Last month, seven survivors convened in Indianapolis to honor those who lost their lives, as well as to view a new documentary about the incident. “I never thought I’d see this day come! I’m glad it was found,” Dick Thelen, a 90-year-old USS Indianapolis survivor and vice chairman of the Survivors’ Organization said upon hearing the news, according to a release from the survivors group. Before the ship was fired on, it had completed a secret mission delivering components of the atomic bomb that would be used in Hiroshima, leading up to the end of the war in the Pacific. An image shot from a remotely operated vehicle shows the bottom of an anchor clearly marked “U.S. Navy” and “Norfolk Navy Yard.” (Provided Photo/ Paul G. Allen) While other expeditions have sought to discover the USS Indianapolis, those involved with the Petrel expedition say a combination of technology, research and new information uncovered in 2016 about a possible location for the ship helped make their exploration a success. According to the release, the team has planned to survey the full wreckage site and conduct a live tour in coming weeks. The U.S. Navy has also said crews will not disturb the site, but rather treat the sunken ship as a war grave. Never miss another Facebook post from WISH-TV

Tim and Beth Sheets received the Arnold Award for Rural Preservation on Thursday during the Indiana State Fair from Indiana Landmarks and Indiana Farm Bureau. The couple own Heritage Farm in Howard County, where they raise Suri alpacas for fleece that’s made into clothing. Tommy Kleckner of Indiana Landmarks says the Sheets’ farm is “wonderfully picturesque” and has enjoyed the care of “wonderful stewards.” Beth Sheets’ parents, Bob and Nelda Lovelace, bought the farm in the 1950s and used its red 1911 English-style barn for raising Hereford cattle.

|Limits on Fort Wayne ‘sexually oriented businesses’ proposedWISH-TV / 3 d. 10 h. 9 min. ago more|
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Fort Wayne City Councilman Russ Jehl plans to introduce an ordinance that would restrict the operating hours for strip clubs and other “sexually oriented businesses” in the city. Under the proposed ordinance, strip clubs and adult book stores would not be allowed to operate between midnight and 7 a.m. The ordinance is modeled after a similar one that was passed in Gary last March, but Jehl said his proposal is less restrictive. “It’s a common-sense way to address the nuisance crime and the reduction of property values associated with these types of businesses,” the Republican councilman said. Jehl said he collected data from the Fort Wayne Police Department which suggests there is about 30 percent more crime happening at strip clubs. There have been a total of 382 police calls to strip clubs from Jan. 1, 2016 to April 21, 2017. There have been a total of 291 police calls to bars during that same time period. Jehl said 68 percent of the calls happen after midnight. The ordinance would impact eight strip clubs that are operating in the city. Jehl said another is set to open downtown soon. “They are proliferating,” he said. “At the beginning of this year there were seven. Now there are eight and there will be nine shortly with one opening downtown soon.” A manager at Cover Girls, 1525 Production Road, did not want to be identified; however, he told WANE that the move would drastically impact their business. He said 75 percent of business is after midnight, and the club is open until 5 a.m. If the ordinance is passed, it could force area strip clubs to close, he said. “There’s a clear problem,” Jehl said. “People also understand these are bad images. Especially because they are located on gateways of our community and they reduce the property value and that’s something that is very important to the city of Fort Wayne.” Jehl will introduce the ordinance at a City Council meeting on Tuesday. The discussion and preliminary vote will be held on September 5 and Jehl expects a final vote on Sept. 12. Never miss another Facebook post from WISH-TV
|Hoosiers will soon need Real ID to flyWISH-TV / 3 d. 11 h. 41 min. ago more|
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — If you use a driver’s license to go through security at the airport, you may need to get a new license soon. Starting in October 2020, Hoosiers will not be able to use standard driver’s licenses to fly commercial air. Instead, they’ll need what’s called a Real ID. You may only notice a small star in the corner of your driver’s license, but in 2020, it will be Hoosiers’ ticket into federal buildings, Amtrak trains and airplanes. Only about 25 percent of Hoosiers have a Real ID, and many don’t even know the difference. A typical driver’s license in Indiana needs to be renewed every six years. So BMV Commissioner Peter Lacy said he’s worried if you don’t have to renew your license before 2020, you may not come in to get a Real ID. Lacy said that’s because until recently the federal government hadn’t given states a deadline for when residents would need to get these licenses. “We are in the process of ramping up that message,” he said. To be clear, you don’t have to get a Real ID license. But the intent of the law is to increase security when people travel or visit government buildings. The law passed at the federal level in 2005 in the wake of 9/11 and then passed in Indiana in 2010. “It’s a way to make sure our licenses are more secure and the person who is presenting themselves with a license really is that person,” said Lacy. That added security comes through additional requirements to get a Real ID. Hoosiers can visit any BMV branch or the Indiana State Fair mobile branch and must bring documents proving identity, social security number, and Indiana residency. The Real ID doesn’t cost any more than a standard license renewal, and the process doesn’t take long. “Took me from start to finish five minutes,” said Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, who got her Real ID Friday. If you don’t get a Real ID, your ability to vote, drive a car or apply for federal benefits will not be affected. For more information, click here. The TSA does have a list of other documents you can use to fly, board Amtrak trains or go to federal buildings after October 2020. Click here for that information.

It’s alleged that Baird assisted Parra, and that the two in turn distributed drugs to Craft, Dodd, Bailey and Bell. Authorities allege Bell then supplied individuals such as Glass and Smith. Law enforcement confiscated over 66 pounds of methamphetamine, six pounds of cocaine, heroine, fentanyl and marijuana, along with $50,000 in cash and 17 firearms. Minkler spoke about the case as it relates to the trafficking of drugs in Indianapolis: This illegal activity will not be tolerated and those who deal drugs in Marion County will soon realize my commitment to help stop the flow of narcotics here. I want the Southern District of Indiana to be the most inhospitable place in the country to sell drugs.” If convicted, all 10 defendants face up to life in prison.

|Avon Community Schools administrators address math class controversyWISH-TV / 3 d. 23 h. 48 min. ago more|
HENDRICKS COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) — Avon schools are dealing with a math class controversy. Some parents are not happy about how students are learning it. Avon Community School Corporation administrators said this is the last of a three-step implementation of what’s called Pearson’s envision math. It shifts learning to allow more student-to-student interaction and allows teachers to work in small groups, but some students and parents are concerned that kids are being left to learn on their own. One student launched a Change.org petition to stop the teaching technique just a few days after school began. “We, students and staff of Avon High School, unite together in a petition to act upon the recent change in the mathematics classrooms throughout ACSC. Students are missing the fundamental values of a successful classroom by removing lectures by our beloved teachers and staff,” wrote Avon student Peyton Dunlap. The petition now has more than 200 supporters. But Avon administrators say students and parents should be patient and give this teaching technique a chance. Associate Superintendent John Atha said the decision to make the change was made by the administration after the Indiana Academic Standards were revised in 2014. Implementation began in kindergarten though fifth grade in 2015, then the middle school in 2016, and now it’s the high school’s turn. The method shifts away from a full lecture-style class to a combination of stand-and-deliver instruction and cooperative learning, where students work together applying the math concepts to problems while the teacher acts as more of a guide on the side. “When we interact like you and I are doing right now, we learn and we understand concepts more deeply. We also learn vocabulary, so it’s not peer teaching as much as interacting with your peers and working with your peers collaboratively to solve problems and to understand more deeply the academic vocabulary for that subject,” Atha said. Avon administrators said there is such a thing as an implementation dip, which is a loss of confidence and security when changes are made. Atha said once routines are established, school leaders believe students will be very successful, especially some students who may have been left behind in the past. “The top tier of mathematics students, they’ll continue, this is not something that is going to slow them down. The research as shown that and actually they’ll be more engaged, because in those conversations they’ll be in, they will be in kind of a teaching role, explaining what they know. But it will then engage the next tier of students who tend to be, as mathematics becomes more difficult, more and more disengaged,” Atha said. Avon administrators said parents should talk to teachers and principals if you’re needing more information or worried about your child’s math class, rather than turning to social media for answers.
