Man critical after motorcycle collides with deer

A motorcyclist was critically injured when his vehicle collided with a deer two miles south of Bristol Tuesday.

The collision occurred at 9:10 p.m. on C.R. 14, west of Ind. 15.

Elkhart County police said Gregory E. Tingstrom, 22, Bristol, was headed west on a 1999 Honda motorcycle when a deer walked onto the road from the north.

Tingstrom applied the brakes but could not stop the motorcycle, and the vehicle struck the deer. The crash caused the motorcycle to slide sideways.

Police said Tingstrom suffered head injuries as a result of the collision and was transported to Memorial Hospital of South Bend for treatment. He was listed in critical condition Wednesday afternoon.

LaGrange pair arrested

A LaGrange man and woman were arrested on multiple drug-related charges Tuesday in LaGrange.

According to LaGrange County police, officers were called to 2880 W. 050 N., LaGrange, Tuesday to follow up on a tip from a concerned citizen that alleged the residents of the home were manufacturing methamphetamine.

Upon arrival at the home, officers identified the residents as Melissa Norris, 42, Jason Lowry, 25, and a 14-year-old juvenile.

After receiving consent to search the residence, officers reportedly located what they believed to be a one pot meth lab as well as a large quantity of items commonly associated with the manufacture of methamphetamine. Police also reportedly found several bags which contained a white powdery substance believed to be methamphetamine.

The Indiana State Police Clandestine Lab team was contacted as well as the Department of Family Services due to the juvenile being in the home during the manufacture of meth.

Both Lowry and Norris were arrested on initial charges of dealing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of paraphernalia, maintaining a common nuisance and possession of chemical reagents.

Both are being held with no bond in the LaGrange County Jail until after a mandatory court appearance.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
