GOSHEN — Ivy Tech Community College is a step closer to securing $500,000 from Elkhart County for the school’s expansion project at its campus in Elkhart.

The Elkhart County Board of Commissioners approved the request Monday, Dec. 16, following a recommendation for approval from the county’s redevelopment commission. The funding will support Ivy Tech’s new World Class Lean Advanced Manufacturing Training Center that will be housed in a 55,000-square-foot building off of C.R. 18 near C.R. 17. The center will prepare students who want to work in the manufacturing industry.

If granted final approval in January by the Elkhart County Council, Ivy Tech will be given $500,000 for the project from the Northeast Corridor Tax Increment Financing District.

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.
