Beth Foster received the tip Monday at Three Wise Men Brewery in Broad Ripple from Seth Collins. She said the gift couldn’t have come at a better time because things have been difficult while she looks for a teaching job.

It was the 54th $500 tip Collins has given in 17 states since his brother died a year ago and left a will stating his wish that a $500 tip be given in his memory. A video of the first tip went viral and inspired $60,000 in donations from around the world.

Collins says his brother enjoyed unexpected acts of kindness.

Group: Ball State prof is ‘being railroaded’

MUNCIE — A national group that supports the belief that a higher power had a hand in the rise of life on Earth is questioning the fairness of a Ball State University panel reviewing allegations that an honors course is religion disguised as science.

The Discovery Institute contends three of the four panelists are linked to groups opposed to intelligent design. That’s the belief that a higher power must have had a hand in life’s origins because life is too complex to have developed through evolution alone.

Discovery Institute vice president John West said the three panelists’ links to groups opposed to intelligent design raise “huge red flags.”

He says it appears the course instructor, assistant professor of physics Eric Hedin, is “being railroaded.”
