Gallagher part of watermelon drop

VINCENNES — The comedian Gallagher will help revelers in Vincennes ring in the New Year with the spectacle of watermelons dropped from a giant man-made watermelon.

The comedian would seem a natural for Vincennes' annual watermelon spectacle because he's known for smashing watermelons with a sledgehammer. A dozen watermelons are dropped each New Year's Eve about 100 feet onto a "splatform" from an 18-foot steel-and-foam melon lifted high.

Bodies found in truck in river

FORT WAYNE — Fort Wayne police say the bodies of a man and a woman have been removed from a pickup truck that apparently drove off of a bridge and plunged into a river.

Police Sgt. Scott Caudill said a passerby called 911 about 7:30 a.m. Thursday to report new damage to the south end of the Tecumseh Street bridge. Fire personnel who responded to the scene determined there was a vehicle submerged in the Maumee River below the bridge and that there were victims inside.
