It is just a matter of whether we are going to make some changes."One of the changes scheduled to take place, starting with the next show is that we will have an ATF agent present to verify the legality of all the purchases. To my knowledge that hasn't been done before."Protesters picketed last weekend's Central Indiana Gun Shows at the publicly owned fairgrounds' Industrial Building in the wake of the Feb. 14 mass school shooting of 17 people, 14 of them students, in Parkland, Florida.

"It's ridiculous. I don't understand. It's not something that should happen to kids."Ruth was one of the participants in an emotional memorial during the protest, holding one of 17 crosses bearing the name and image of a victim of the massacre as students read a description of each victim.

CROWN POINT — A Lake County police officer facing rape charges could return to uniform if he can avoid a felony conviction. The Lake County Police Merit Board has dismissed disciplinary charges against Nicholas “Nick” Medrano this week on a technicality, said Chief William Paterson, second-in-command at the Lake County Sheriff's Department.
