  A witness says an undercover activist at Fair Oaks Farms told farm workers to abuse animals in order to get footage for his investigation. That’s what the Newton County prosecutor overseeing the case told multiple media outlets. 

An official with the activist organization Animal Recovery Mission (ARM) calls the claim “laughable" and "absurd."

ARM founder Richard Couto says there’s no way that ARM’s investigator could have convinced experienced farm workers to abuse animals on his first day posing as a entry-level employee.

National Weather Service forecasters say four inches of rain have fallen over the last 24 hours making flooding worse in some areas, even over recently planted fields.

Bob Bruner is an Extension Educator at the Purdue Extension in Owen and Clay Counties. He says a food shortage shouldn’t be a concern from acres of fields under water, just the financial well-being of farmers.

Community members at a vigil in South Bend Monday night are looking for answers following the shooting death of 53-year-old Eric Logan by a police officer early Sunday morning.

 

(Officials have two conflicting birth dates for Logan. 1964 or 1965.)

 

Logan, who is black, was shot in the parking lot of Central High Apartments on the corner of Colfax Avenue and Williams Street. He was transported in a police vehicle to a hospital where he died.

Just 13 percent of eligible, registered Hoosier voters cast a ballot in May’s municipal primaries.

 

That’s barely an improvement over the last municipal primary elections in 2015. In Allen County, which had a contested mayoral Republican primary in Fort Wayne, voter turnout was 14 percent.

 

Huntington County had 25 percent of registered voters cast their ballots. Wells County had 20 percent.
