Troy Williams told the Times of Northwest Indiana that he had to promise the children their mother was alive and doing okay, but he needed them to stay in the car.Dino Pavoni, a Crestwood police officer from Midlothian, Illinois, was arrested for multiple battery charges, including domestic battery, strangulation and interfering with reporting a crime.Around 3 a.m. on Sunday police were called to a trailer in the Lakeshore Camp Resort.When Williams arrived a boy was standing in the rain crying. He took him to the trailer, and he found a girl and another child crying. He was told their mom was lying on the floor of the camper, and their dad was inside.The children were taken to safety and Pavoni left the trailer with his hands up. His wife was sitting on the floor.The woman said she couldn’t put away the awning on the trailer and woke Pavoni up for help and he became angry.A video, recorded by one of the children, shows Pavoni arguing with his wife, and flipping over a picnic table. He goes back into the trailer and pushes one of the children aside and closes the door on the girl’s arm.Pavoni is also seen holding a holstered handgun while yelling at his wife, and a child asks him to stop and that he’s drunk.He then hits his wife in the head and holds her up by her neck against the wall. He slams her to the ground where she’s seen gasping for air.Charging documents say the woman lost consciousness, and Pavoni told police she had a seizure, and he checked to make sure she was breathing before returning to his bedroom.Pavoni is also accused of throwing his wife’s phone when she tried to call police. She told police her three children werethere during the incident and she asked them to call 911, which they did.Pavoni accused his wife of attacking him, and said he didn’t hit her until police told him they had seen the video. He then said he no longer wanted to talk to police.The sheriff’s department says Pavoni has left the Porter County Jail on a $5,000 bond.

This week the stock market has experienced gains and losses of a thousand points, short-term fluctuations Professor Dan McKeever said shouldn’t worry people who are investing for the long run. Ten days later, he says to stay the course. RELATED: Why experts say you shouldn’t be concerned over short-term stock market changes McKeever did mention now would be a good time to refinance your mortgage. He says if you have 20 or 30 years of earning potential left, the best thing you can do is leave your portfolio alone. McKeever said if there was one group who should react, it would be people close to retirement who are relying on their portfolio. He said if this applies to you, contact your financial adviser to assess your risk and whether you should adjust your portfolio. “Rates now are down at 3 to 3.5 percent, so if you want to pay off your home quicker or reduce your monthly payment, refinancing becomes a lot more attractive in times like these when the fed is cutting rates to try and stave off decreases in stock prices,” McKeever said. VESTAL (WBNG) — On Feb. 24., a Binghamton University professor told 12 News even though Coronavirus was impacting the stock market, it wasn’t a large cause for concern. McKeever emphasized that betting on the American economy is one of the safest bets you can make, so investing in the long run is generally your best strategy. read more
Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Free speech, however, is not a license to do anything at anytime. What makes the school protest different is that we have laws requiring student attendance and we try to provide a positive learning environment for the schools to perform their mission.By not discouraging walkouts, the schools are encouraging violation of the law. The taxpayers are assessed billions of dollar to provide the facilities and trained teachers to give the students foundations in the sciences and humanities. A walk stops this mission. While a walkout may be for 17 minutes, the process changes the dynamics and learning environment for the entire day and certainly doesn’t protect the rights of the students who are striving to master the mandated curriculum. Walkouts during the school day, like any other form of truancy, shouldn’t be permitted.As it’s reported in the paper, future protests may be planned. Let’s encourage free speech, but not in violation of the law and at the expense of those who wish to learn the prescribed studies.Gene AltmanNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsNiskayuna girls’ cross country wins over BethlehemEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidation Christopher Ognibene wrote a March 25 letter shaming the school districts that discouraged student walkouts. While I know Mr. Ognibene is a talented and dedicated educator, I must disagree with this view.Students, and all of us, have the right of free speech and can express our opinions on gun laws, environmental concerns, pro-choice, pro-life, animal rights and an infinite number of controversial issues. We also have the right to go to Washington to protest or protest at the offices of our elected officials. read more
