WASHINGTON — When President Donald Trump pulled the plug on an upcoming trip to North Korea by his secretary of state, he pointed a finger of blame at China and the global superpower's trade practices. In his recent trade breakthrough with Mexico, Trump praised the country's outgoing president for his help on border security and agriculture. Both developments offered fresh evidence of how Trump has made trade policy the connective tissue that ties together different elements of his "America First" foreign policy and syncs up them with his political strategy for the 2020 presidential election. Trump's 2016 triumph was paved in part by his support among blue-collar voters in Midwestern manufacturing states. By Ken Thomas. SENT: 750 words, photos.



WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump started his Labor Day with an attack on a top union leader, lashing out after criticism from AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. The president's attack came after Trumka appeared on "Fox News Sunday" over the weekend where he said efforts to overhaul the North American Free Trade Agreement should include Canada. Trumka, whose organization is an umbrella group for most unions, said the economies of the United States, Canada and Mexico are "integrated" and "it's pretty hard to see how that would work without having Canada in the deal."

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana's sheriffs say they need more state money to cover the costs of holding low-level nonviolent felons in county jails. Indiana's county jails currently get a $35 per-day payment for every Level 6 felon they house. But it's been at least 30 years since that amount changed, according to the Indiana Sheriffs' Association. "The cost of housing and putting persons in jail as far as food and gas for transportation and just the staff that it takes to man some of the mental illness folks that we're having to deal with, some of the drug addictions that we're seeing that we didn't have 30 years ago necessarily to the degree that we do today, are a real challenge," said Hendricks County Sheriff Brett Clark.

BARGERSVILLE — Years ago, when local leaders envisioned the future Interstate 69 traveling through northwestern Johnson County, the entire route was lined with businesses. Now, that vision has changed, and those developments would be centralized around certain interchanges. And what would be built would depend on its location, since officials have different ideas for the three different I-69 interchanges planned in Johnson County. What you won't see: truck stops and gas stations that have been developed around other nearby interstate exits. By Annie Goeller. Daily Journal. SENT: 750 words, photos requested.


BLOOMINGTON — David Woodley doesn't have to cancel practice because of weather anymore. In a quarter century as director of Indiana University's Marching Hundred, the band has never had a true indoor rehearsal space until now. This is the first football season the band will get to use Ray E. Cramer Marching Hundred Hall. Located at the corner of 17th Street and Woodlawn Avenue, the 30,000-square-foot building has restrooms, locker rooms, storage space and multiple rehearsal rooms. One of those rehearsal rooms is large enough for all the band's 300 members, allowing Woodley to still have practice, even when it rains. By Michael Reschke. The Herald-Times.

For weeks, the Purdue Boilermakers kept hearing the questions about their receivers. It took Rondale Moore one game to provide the answer.
