SOUTH BEND - We see women in them all the time, but if you're a man, do you know what it takes to walk in those high heels? Now, you have the chance to find out. The 4th annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is about 6 weeks away. This year, it will take place downtown, starting and ending at the former College Football Hall of Fame. The event raises money for the YWCA and it's programs helping abused women and children. “It's just hard for us to imagine that these things go on, mostly behind closed doors, but it is prevalent, and it is a stain on the community and causes young people to be exposed to violence at very early ages,” said former Indiana Governor Joe Kernan.

SOUTH BEND--  50 years ago Wednesday, Dr. Martin Luther King Junior gave his "I Have a Dream" speech and led the March on Washington, D.C.   A couple of local people experienced it all in person and are sharing their memories. Lois Clark reads, "We refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. " Clark, who lives in South Bend, is 91-years-old and listened to King utter those words a half century ago.     Back then, she was in her early 40's and went with a group of people from the area to hear King speak.

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg's plan to convert some of the city's downtown streets from one-way to two-way is getting some push-back from members of the common council.
