9 hours ago

Ball State University trustees now say the Muncie school will remove the name of Papa John’s pizza founder and alumnus John Schnatter from a business program on campus.  As IPR’s Stephanie Wiechmann reports, the board says it is reversing course from an earlier statement on the recommendation of the university president.

Ball State’s board has voted to remove John Schnatter’s name from its Institute for Entrepreneurship and Free Enterprise.  Schnatter’s name will also be removed from a professorship funded by the same donation.

Nolan Brewer, a 20-year-old man from Cloverdale, Indiana, has been arrested and charged for the Nazi graffiti found at a Carmel synagogue in July.

A co-conspirator was also arrested, and remains in custody. U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler says the investigation is ongoing and gave no details about the co-conspirator, but he says the person is a juvenile.

Minkler says local and federal investigators received numerous tips about the crime, which led them to Brewer.

WOWO

Tributes poured in on social media late Wednesday after news that longtime Fort Wayne radio personality Charly Butcher passed away at the age of 61.

 

Butcher, who most recently served as the morning news host on WOWO, had been on local airwaves for more than three decades. Thursday morning's show, his show, was open phone lines to collect memories of a well-known Fort Wayne voice.

Super Shot

After a measles outbreak in 1992, local hospitals joined forces to provide children free or low-cost immunizations. 

Out of those efforts a non-profit was created with a mission to break down the barriers of access and cost by operating four immunization clinics throughout Allen County. Super Shot has made vaccinations accessible to the community for 25 years.
