PLAINFIELD, Ind. (AP) - Haris (Hahr-us) Suleman's classmates are remembering him as a witty and inspirational person. The 17-year-old from Indiana died when his plane crashed in the Pacific Ocean during an around-the-world flight.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Recent court documents indicate that the University of Notre Dame might appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court in its challenge to part of the federal health care law that requires it to cover contraceptives in its health insurance for students and employees. In February, a three-judge panel of a federal appeals court upheld a ruling that denied the school's request for a preliminary injunction against the birth control provision. It denied the school a new hearing in the case in May.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - An Indianapolis man has been sentenced to more than 33 years in prison after being convicted on 20 gun- and heroin-related counts.

U.S. Attorney Joe Hogsett says Lomax and his associates dealt heroin in and around the Haughville area of Indianapolis between 2009 and 2012.

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - The head of Indiana's State Board of Accounts says he will limit the participation of local officials in reviewing audit reports after a prosecutor's decision that an Evansville councilwoman didn't break the law by secretly recording one such meeting. A special prosecutor found that Councilwoman Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley didn't interfere with the state auditors by releasing her recording of the March meeting. State Examiner Paul Joyce says only local government clerks will now be meeting with auditors.
