@kwellscomm News & Sports  —

Another local beauty college shuttered its doors permanently this weekend. Students at a beauty school are upset by its unexpected closure. Students at Kaye’s Beauty College (Hair Fashions By Kaye) located in Castleton were upset by its unexpected closure. They found a sign on the building’s door on Saturday, when they showed up for class that said students can pick up their transcript and personal items, and empty their locker Tuesday, October 18 between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. The police were called in to break-up a crowd of angry students demanding their money back. Media reports indicate the reason for the closure is that the school could not meet new rules imposed by the U.S. Department of Education–the same cited for the recent closure of Regency Beauty College. The department is using something called heightened cash monitoring to make sure these schools are at reduced risk to students and taxpayers.

Another Indianapolis company may be packing up and moving its operations to Mexico. Rexnord Corporation says it’s “tentatively” planning to move its bearings manufacturing work out of the country next year. The company says its reason is labor costs. The announcement comes less than a year after Carrier Corporation announced it would shift operations from Indiana to Mexico by 2019, resulting in 1,400 layoffs. Mayor Joe Hogsett plans to meet with execs today, according to various media reports, to discuss this.

The Indiana State Police say they are simply looking into voter fraud complaints. State Police commanders are refuting claims they are trying to suppress votes. Patriot Majority USA is ginning-up the suppression complaints in the wake of a raid earlier this month as part of a fraud case. The State Police and Governor Mike Pence’s office say they are doing no such thing.

Donald Trump says the upcoming November 8 election is being rigged against him. The Republican presidential candidate tweeted Sunday that Hillary Clinton and the media are to blame. He’s  also not happy with “Saturday Night Live” and actor Alec Baldwin’s portrayal of him. Oddly enough the show included Governor Mike Pence in the political action this weekend when they parodied the women in Trump’s life ready to “Beyonce/Lemonade” bounce out the door and ‘not sorry’ for doing so after recent scandals. Regarding the current state of the campaign they sang Pence is looking for the back door. Check out their “Melanianade’ entitled parody below:

WikiLeaks is releasing another batch of hacked emails from the Clinton campaign. The website released emails from the personal email account of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta Sunday. They include information on how the campaign can attract black voters, handle apologies, and deal with the press. Clinton aides accuse the Russians of the hacks and say some of the emails might have been doctored.

The families of Sandy Hook Elementary School attack victims are pledging to appeal the ruling dismissing their lawsuit against Remington Arms.  A judge says gun makers are exempt from liability under the federal Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms act. An attorney for the families say they are disappointed, but are not ready to end their fight to hold the maker of the assault rifle used in the attack accountable. The plaintiffs say an appeal will be filed as they work to prevent the next Sandy Hook from happening.



An update Kentucky police have arrested one man in relation to the shooting death of the teenage daughter of U.S. Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay. Fifteen-year-old Trinity Gay died at a Lexington, Kentucky hospital early yesterday morning, the innocent victim of a shootout at a local restaurant.  She was hit in the neck when gunfire erupted between two vehicles in front of that eaterie. Trinity was a rising high school track star in her own right. She was on the track team at Lafayette High School in Lexington, where her father attended and also ran track.
