EXCHANGE-TARIFFS’ IMPACT-FARMERS

WYATT, Ind. — Larry Enders estimates that he’s already lost about $23,000 on the value of last year’s harvest since the tariff battle between the United States and several of its trading partners got underway several months ago. And Enders operates a relatively modest 700-acre farm just south of Wyatt in southeastern St. Joseph County.“There’s no way to make it back up,” said the 74-year-old farmer. “You just have to wait until next year.” Despite the possible loss on the crops, Enders says he and many of his friends in the area are more fortunate than others because they’re not carrying any debt.

EXCHANGE-OFFICER ADOPTS RESCUED DOG

INDIANAPOLIS — The first time Tim Elliott saw Winx, the pit bull was whimpering in the corner of a north-side post office, shot in the face. Now, several months — and surgeries — later, the dog has been officially adopted by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer and his wife. Elliott was flagged down on May 9, where he encountered Winx bleeding from a gunshot wound and doused in what he later discovered to be bleach. “When I actually came in there, he wagged his tail, got up and came to me, and then just kind of collapsed by my legs,” he said. Indianapolis Animal Care and Control retrieved him, but Elliott didn’t stop thinking about the dog. By Holly V. Hays. The Indianapolis Star. SENT: 580 words, photos pursuing.
