  • Authorities are investigating a reported school bus stop-arm violation near the site of a triple fatality on Indiana 25 a little more than a year ago.

Another Tippecanoe Valley school bus, again on a fall morning, again on State Road 25 near Rochester, again stopped with stop sign extended and loading a child, and again a driver headed toward Rochester illegally passed the bus,” Deb (Cooper) Spencer posted on Facebook about the Wednesday incident. She is Kara Spencer’s mother-in-law.

  • Basil Mawbey is looking to the future and remembering the past.

    The new North Miami boys basketball coach began his 42nd season as a high school coach when practice began statewide Monday. The North Miami School Board approved his hiring at its Aug. 20 meeting. He replaced Cliff Hawkins, who left after two seasons to take the coaching job at Tipton.

    “First of all, I really enjoy coaching basketball,” Mawbey said. “I missed the daily challenges and excitement from it, so I thought I’d like to get back. I coached the last two years with Brian McCauley at Noblesville and enjoyed that. When he decided not to coach this year at Noblesville, I thought, Well, I’d still like to coach somewhere, and when North Miami became available, it was a pretty logical choice since it’s my home school where I graduated from and a school in which I know a lot of people. I think it would be a situation where I would like to be involved with that.”

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities on Monday released video of a man suspected of killing two Indiana teenagers two years ago and urged the public to scrutinize the footage, which shows him walking on an abandoned railroad bridge the girls visited while out hiking the day they were slain. The Indiana State Police also released a new sketch of the suspect, which State Police Superintendent Doug Carter said was produced thanks to “new information and intelligence” collected during the investigation into the February 2017 killings of 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams.

  • CULVER — If the Kentucky Derby is known as “the most exciting two minutes in sports,” then a two-minute span during the second quarter of the Tippecanoe Valley girls basketball team’s game against host Culver Academy Tuesday might come a close second.

    Valley scored 13 points in that two-minute span, never letting Culver Academy cross halfcourt thanks to its fullcourt pressure defense and turning a 9-5 deficit into an 18-9 lead.

    It only got better for Valley from there in a 52-18 win.
