Thursday normally marks the start of one of southwest Michigan's largest festivals. But for the first time in 33 years there will be no Venetian Festival in St. Joseph, Michigan. Last September the Festival committee decided to end the annual four-day event after the city of St. Joseph pulled its support. "People from across the country, possibly the world, came back to St. Joe the third week of July. They knew they would see people, meet people, they wouldn't see any other time, even Thanksgiving or Christmas," said Gayle Olson.

GOSHEN - After some controversy regarding its mascot, the Redskin, Goshen High School officials tell WSBT there has been no decision to change it or any logos. Goshen Community Schools administrators made the decision to remove the school's wooden Indian Chief statue from the gym last May "to be respectful of differing views," after learning the Department of Civil Rights filed a lawsuit against 35 Michigan schools for using Native American nicknames. The term "Redskin" is considered by some to be a racial slur against Native Americans.

MISHAWAKA - Getting your dog to obey can sometimes seem like an impossible task. But one local trainer is using techniques she learned from Victoria Stilwell, host of Animal Planet's "It's Me or the Dog," to teach canines everything from giving a shake to braving a thunderstorm. On Saturday, Neika Smessaert met one of her clients for the second time. His name is Whistle, a two-and-a-half-year-old retired racing Grey Hound.   Whistle was adopted by his owners, Spencer Durland and Kanika Travers, a few months ago and they say everything is great except for Whistle's anxiety.

GRANGER - The Indiana Toll Road “i-Zoom” brand and colors will be retired in 2012 and will be replaced with the more recognizable E-ZPass logo and purple color scheme. Since 2007, “i-Zoom,” “i-Zoom Girl” and an orange/gray color scheme have been used for  electronic tolling on the Toll Road. With this change, Indiana will join 14 other states in the E-ZPass agency in sharing the E-ZPass name. Beginning immediately and expected to last until October 2012, ITR Concession Co. will remove all i-Zoom signs and banners on the Indiana Toll Road and replace with E-ZPass signage, and i-Zoom and i-Zoom Girl will be removed from all public materials.

SOUTH BEND - Tuesday marked another crucial step into the investigation of a plane crash that killed two people and sent three others to the hospital. After crews strapped several pieces of that private jet to a crane that hoisted them onto a flat bed truck, a police escort led the truck from the scene on North Iowa Street in South Bend to a hangar at South Bend Regional Airport. Investigators will spend the next several days and weeks examining the plane inside that hangar to try and figure out what caused it to crash.

NILES, Mich. - There was a sense of relief in a quiet Cass County neighborhood Thursday.  The bright fall colors provided a much different backdrop than those Carberry Road neighbors saw more than 20 months ago when police cars, their K-9 partners, crime scene technicians and a fresh blanket of blowing snow set the scene for a brutal crime. “It's about time; it's two years too long,” said Niles resident Brandie McMichael, who babysits in that neighborhood daily.

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.
