Photo by Gary Nieter, TIMES-UNION Eva Mozes Kor, a Holocaust survivor and advo cate for forgiveness who vis ited Warsaw and Winona Lake in 2014, has died. She was 85. Governor Eric J. Holcomb offered the following state ment regarding the passing of Eva Kor: "The world just lost a giant with Eva Kor's passing. Janet and I loved and adored her. Everywhere she went, Eva brought light into dark ness and provided comfort to those in pain unlike anyone we've ever met. From her against all odds survival as a young girl in Auschwitz to her peace spreading mes sage based from home in Terre Haute, her relentless and optimistic example inspired the world. Her angelic spirit will live on in the countless souls she saved from ongoing confusion and torment. Janet and I are reminded just how blessed we are to have her as a friend. We will miss her laughter, her wisdom and her passion. We call on every Hoosier to look above on this Independence Day and say a prayer for Eva and the family and nation she leaves behind." Holcomb named Kor the recipient of the 2017 Sachem, the state's highest honor. The Auschwitz Memorial tweeted Thursday, "Only five days ago we recorded a testi mony of Eva Kor, an Auschwitz survivor, for (the museum's) archive. Today came news about her passing away. It's more than just 'a breaking news.' It is a devas tating one as one more sur vivor stopped sharing the story." The Indianapolis Star reported Kor died Thursday morning just miles from the Auschwitz concentration camp, 75 years after first arriving there as a victim of torture under the Nazi regime. The newspaper list ed her time of death as 7:10 a.m., local time, in Krakow, Poland. Indiana Sen. Todd Young tweeted, "Eva Kor taught so many about the horrors of the Holocaust and, just as importantly, the power of love and forgiveness. Indiana and the world will miss this great American." In 2014, Kor spoke to sixth through eighth graders from Warsaw, Tippecanoe Valley and Wawasee schools during the day, and then gave a public presentation that evening at the Manahan Orthopedic Capital Center on the campus of Grace College in Winona Lake. Over 6,000 people attended the two sessions. She also signed some copies of her book, "Surviving the Angel of Death: The True Story of a Mengele Twin in Auschwitz." A big part of her story, her lectures and book was dis covering that forgiveness is healing and "the seed for peace," despite she and her twin sister, Miriam, being experimented on at 10 years old by Nazi doctors. The twin had a daily inspection with Dr. Josef Mengele, later known as the "Angel of Death." They were liberated from Auschwitz in 1945. Miriam died in 1993. According to a March 26, 2014, TIMES-UNION article, at the lecture in Winona Lake, Kor said, "I call forgiveness a seed for peace. Anger is a seed for war. The forgiveness is not for the perpetrator."

After high school, Ziegler began to follow his passion for instrumental music by marching with the Glassmen Drum and Bugle Corps in 1992.

Upon graduating from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago with a bachelor's degree in church music, Ziegler obtained his music education degree through WCS Recommends Ziegler As New WCHS Band Director STAFF REPORT Mark Ziegler See BAND- Page 2A WASHINGTON (AP) - In a sweltering capital threatened by storms, the traditional Fourth of July parade Thursday served as a warm up act to a distinctly nontraditional evening event at the Lincoln Memorial, where President Donald Trump planned to command the stage against the backdrop of a show of military muscle. Protesters unimpressed by his "Salute to America" program inflated a roly poly bal loon depicting Trump as an angry, diaper clad baby. By adding his own, one hour production to festivities that typically draw hundreds of thousands anyway, Trump set himself up to be the first president in nearly seven decades to address a crowd at the National Mall on Independence Day. "I will speak on behalf of our great Country!" he said in a morning tweet. "Perhaps even Air Force One will do a low & loud sprint over the crowd." An afternoon downpour drenched the Independence Day crowds and presaged an evening of possible on and off storms, rais ing some suspense about whether Trump's program of military flyovers and the capital's annual July 4 fireworks would be interrupt ed. The rain chased off a steady stream of people while others arrived, using plastic bags and chairs and covers of baby strollers for shelter. Trump set aside a historic piece of real estate - a stretch of the Mall from the Lincoln Monument to the midpoint of the reflecting pool - for a mix of invited military members, Republican and Trump campaign donors and other bigwigs.
