We all know about texting, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Ever heard of a “selfie?” That's a picture you take of yourself. It seems the apps and social media websites and slang that comes along with them are never ending. Onavo, a company that ranks the popularity of iPhone apps, put one called Snapchat at #9. According to the statistics, Snapchat has 18.9 of the market share. Twitter has 26.7 percent. It seems every teenager with a smartphone has at least heard about it. Many of them have downloaded it. Snapchat is a free app that lets users take pictures and record videos then send or “snap” them to someone else after setting a time limit for how long the other person can see it before it disappears.

GATESVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Among the dirt, gravel and stones dredged from the bottom of Salt Creek, an unmistakable sparkle shone through. A tiny flake of gold, no bigger than a speck, had risen to the top of the worthless rock. Prospectors swirled the collection of stones and water in their pans, trying to get a better look. Most had been looking for gold for years and knew the telltale glitter and the way gold moved in the water. Without years of experience, you'd never notice the flake.

NILES -  It's beef jerky, but it looks like some form of chewing tobacco - and it got four students suspended at Ring Lardner Middle School in Niles on Wednesday. One of those four suspended students suspended had chewing tobacco in this beef jerky tin. But the other three actually had the beef jerky in it. "I was confused why I got in trouble for this," eighth-grader Brenton Harrell said. Teriyaki beef jerky. It doesn't scream “suspension.” "It's ground up beef jerky you can put it in your lip or eat it," Harrel said.

SOUTH BEND - An old costume collection has a new home that is actually in an old building. When South Bend's Marquette Elementary moved into their new building, the old building was boarded up and left vacant. The South Bend School Corporation had plans to demolish it but there were opponents who wanted it on the National Historic Registry. Now, those demo plans are on hold, but the building is not empty. It is now the home of the Casaday Costume Collection.

SOUTH BEND - The College Football Hall of Fame in downtown South Bend is closed for for good, but it continues to be a financial burden on the city. Visitors walked through the Hall for the last time on Sunday. The Hall of Fame cut admission prices to $2 over the weekend to give people extra incentive to visit. The attraction never lived up to expectations. When the city first announced the Hall would be coming to South Bend in 1992, then Mayor Joe Kernan said it would draw 200,000 people a year.
