GOSHEN — The entire freshman class at Goshen College dispersed throughout Elkhart and Goshen on Wednesday, Sept. 25, to work on community service projects on a perfect and sunny fall day.

Every year the new students go to several different sites to complete whatever type of work will better the establishments that benefit the community.

This year’s work sites included Pathways Retreat Center and The Boys and Girls Club in Goshen, as well as a La Casa, Inc. site in Elkhart and Soup for Success.

Though there was tons of physical labor, climbing up and down ladders, and many hours put in, the students kept smiles on their faces and engaged with each other as if they were just doing school work.

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.
