Families find ways to beat the heat in Indianapolis

One spot especially busy on Saturday was Tarkington Park.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — People across Indianapolis found fun ways to beat the heat by spending time at some of the city’s many parks and splash pads Saturday.

One spot especially busy on Saturday was Tarkington Park.

Spending time in the water is a good way to beat the heat; there are still some safety concerns.

It’s possible to develop heat-related illness while in the water, so it is important to stay hydrated and take frequent breaks out of the sun.

Gunnar Ernst took his daughter to the park. He said Indiana summers are always hot, but not like this.

“I haven’t remembered it being so hot where you walk outside and you feel like you’re just like walking into a sauna. I haven’t felt like this probably since I was a kid,” said Ernst.

Tarkington Park isn’t your only splash pad option. For a full list, click here.

Scotty’s Brewhouse, Thr3e Wise Men ceases all operations

The announcement comes just weeks after Scotty's Brewhouse in Fort Wayne closed, which added to four other locations that had closed since December.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A statement found taped to an entrance of Scotty’s Dawghouse in Indianapolis indicates that all of the Scotty’s Brewhouse and Thr3e Wise Men Brewing Company operations “would be ceasing effective July 20, 2019.”

Scotty’s Dawghouse is located on the Butler University campus at 4702 Sunset Ave. Suite 100 in Indianapolis.

The announcement comes just weeks after Scotty’s Brewhouse in Fort Wayne closed, which added to four other locations that had closed since December.

“The company has been struggling for some time and unfortunately could not overcome the deficit that was ahead of them,” the statement found on the door of Scotty’s Dawghouse read.

At least three investors, including one in Fort Wayne, have sued the founder of Scotty’s Brewhouse. The lawsuits claim Scott Wise defrauded investors and lost more than a million dollars when he sold the chain in 2016. Wise has denied any wrongdoing in that case. 

News 8 has reached out for additional information regarding the statement and have not gotten a response. You can read the entire statement below.

Couple arrested after strangling, killing their newborn at hospital

Police in Oxnard said their officers were summoned to St. John’s Medical Center Friday morning to investigate the baby’s death.

OXNARD, Calif. (AP) — A young couple has been arrested on suspicion of strangling their newborn to death at a Southern California hospital.

Police in Oxnard said their officers were summoned to St. John’s Medical Center Friday morning to investigate the baby’s death.

Sgt. Brandon Ordelheide said 20-year-old Andrea Torralba and her boyfriend, 21-year-old David Villa, notified the medical staff that their hours-old son was unresponsive. The staff tried to revive the infant but he succumbed to his injuries.

Ordelheide said doctors determined the newborn was strangled until he was unconscious.

Torralba and Villa were arrested for investigation of assault on a child resulting in death. They were being held Saturday on $1 million bail each.

The sergeant said when questioned by detectives, the two said they didn’t want the baby.

‘The Lion King’ bites off $185 million debut, a July record

It's a record for the month of July and PG-rated films, and the ninth-highest opening of all time.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Walt Disney Co. is ruling the box office again with the record-breaking debut of “The Lion King” this weekend.

The studio says Sunday that the photorealistic remake devoured an estimated $185 million in ticket sales from 4,725 North American locations. It’s a record for the month of July and PG-rated films, and the ninth-highest opening of all time.

Globally it’s already grossed $531 million. No other studio even dared to go up against “The Lion King” with a major release.

In its third weekend, “Spider-Man: Far From Home” fell to second place with $21 million. “Toy Story 4” took third with $14.6 million.

And with an additional $1.5 million from the weekend, “Avengers: Endgame” has officially surpassed “Avatar” as the biggest film of all time with $2.79 billion.

Feeling blue? Oregon students can take ‘mental health days’

But don't call it coddling. The students behind the measure say it's meant to change the stigma around mental health in a state that has some of the United States' highest suicide rates.

SALEM, Oregon (AP) — Oregon will allow students to take “mental health days” just as they would sick days, expanding the reasons for excused school absences to include mental or behavioral health under a new law that experts say is one of the first of its kind in the U.S.

But don’t call it coddling. The students behind the measure say it’s meant to change the stigma around mental health in a state that has some of the United States’ highest suicide rates. Mental health experts say it is one of the first state laws to explicitly instruct schools to treat mental health and physical health equally, and it comes at a time educators are increasingly considering the emotional health of students. Utah passed a similar law last year.

Oregon’s bill, signed by Gov. Kate Brown last month, also represents one of the few wins for youth activists from around the state who were unusually active at the Capitol this year. Along with expanded mental health services, they lobbied for legislation to strengthen gun control and lower the voting age, both of which failed.

Haily Hardcastle, an 18-year-old from the Portland suburb of Sherwood who helped champion the mental health bill, said she and other student leaders were partly motivated by the national youth-led movement that followed last year’s Parkland, Florida, school shooting.

“We were inspired by Parkland in the sense that it showed us that young people can totally change the political conversation,” she said. “Just like those movements, this bill is something completely coming from the youth.”

Hardcastle, who plans to attend the University of Oregon in the fall, said she and fellow youth leaders drafted the measure to respond to a mental health crisis in schools and to “encourage kids to admit when they’re struggling.”

Debbie Plotnik, executive director of the nonprofit advocacy group Mental Health America, said implementing the idea in schools was important step in challenging the way society approaches mental health issues.

“The first step to confront this crisis is to reduce the stigma around it,” Plotnik said. “We need to say it’s just as OK to take care for mental health reasons as it is to care for a broken bone or a physical illness.”

Suicide is Oregon’s second leading cause of death among those ages 10 to 34, according to data from the state Health Authority. Nearly 17% of eighth-graders reported seriously contemplating taking their lives within the past 12 months.

And it’s not just an Oregon problem, although the state does have a suicide rate 40% higher than the national average. The national suicide rate has also been on the rise and recently hit a 50-year high, climbing more than 30% since 1999, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Previously, schools were obliged to excuse only absences related to physical illnesses. At many schools, absences must be excused to make up missed tests or avoid detention.

Under state law, students can have up to five absences excused in a three month period. Anything more requires a written excuse to the principal.

Despite little public opposition from lawmakers, Hardcastle said she’s received pushback from some parents who say the legislation wasn’t necessary, as students can already take mental health days by lying or pretending to be sick. Other opponents have said the law will encourage students to find more excuses to miss school in a state that also suffers from one of the worst absenteeism rates in the nation. More than 1 in 6 children missed at least 10% of school days in the 2015-2016 school year, according to state data.

But those criticisms miss the point of the bill, said Hardcastle. Students are going to take the same amount of days off from school with or without the new law, but they might be less likely to lie about why they’re taking take a day off if schools formally recognize mental health in their attendance policies.

“Why should we encourage lying to our parents and teachers?” she said. “Being open to adults about our mental health promotes positive dialogue that could help kids get the help they need.”

Parents Roxanne and Jason Wilson agree, and say the law might have helped save their 14-year-old daughter, Chloe, who took her life in February 2018.

The Eugene-based couple said the funny and bubbly teen had dreams of becoming a surgeon but faced bullying after coming out as bisexual in middle school.

When things at school were particularly rough, Chloe would pretend to be sick to stay home.

“Because she lied to get her absences excused, we didn’t get to have those mental health conversations that could have saved her life,” said Roxanne, who now manages a local suicide prevention program.

Chloe was one of five teens to die by suicide in the Eugene area that month. Roxanne and Jason, who moved to the rural city of Dayton following their daughter’s death, worry that those against the bill underestimate the hardships today’s teens face.

“Calling kids coddled or sensitive will just further discourage them from being honest with adults about what they’re going through,” Jason Wilson said. “We need to do everything we can to open up that dialogue between parents and children when it comes to mental health.”
