ELKHART — During the next two weeks, Cornerstone Christian Montessori students in grades 1-6 will be collecting non-perishable food items to be donated to a local food pantry.

During the winter months, elementary students at CCM receive swimming classes at the YMCA as part of their gym curriculum and they will celebrate on the last day of swim class with their “Pool Plunge for Pantry”. The students from the class that collects the most items will take turns pushing Bob Whitehead, Executive Board President, into the pool at the YMCA.

In the fun and friendly competition, CCM aims to foster a servant’s heart for the community.

A North Carolina prosecutor was the intended target of an elaborate kidnapping plot, but the kidnappers looked up the wrong address on the Internet and abducted the prosecutor's father instead, according to an indictment released Tuesday, April 22, 2014. Authorities have said the kidnapping was retaliation for Colleen Janssen's prosecution of Melton for his involvement in a 2011 shooting. Melton, a high-ranking member of the Bloods gang, orchestrated the abduction from behind bars using a cellphone, the indictment said.
