5 things you need to know for Thursday, Aug. 23

INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Good morning. Here are five things you need to know today:

1) A state board this morning will consider taking away the license of a local retired fertility doctor. Donald Cline admitted last year to using his own sperm to inseminate his patients. Cline retired in 2009. Some of the now-adult children of his former patients filed a complaint with the state attorney general's office in 2014 after they became suspicious that Cline had inseminated some of his patients with his own sperm. The board is scheduled to meet at 9:30 a.m.

2) Yorktown wants to buy some residents' homes as part of a redevelopment plan, but some don't want to sell. One is 90-year-old Ruby Martin's home on Canal Street, where she lived with her now-deceased husband for 13 years. "I'm 90 years old, and I'm blind and I want to stay here in my house," Ruby said. Sunshine Ertle, who lives next door to Ruby, said the town doesn't want to offer a fair price for homes like the one she owns, and instead is playing hardball by suing for eminent domain. The town has only filed one eminent domain lawsuit and leaders say they don't plan to take Ruby's house that way.

3) President Trump will be in Evansville next week for a rally. It's scheduled for 7 p.m. Central Time Thursday, August 30 at the Ford Center. You need a ticket to get in, but tickets are free. Those interested in attending can request your tickets online.

4) WTHR's Andrea Morehead is in great spirits as she officially completes 18 weeks of chemo treatment. Andrea first shared her fight with breast cancer back in May and returned to the anchor desk a couple weeks later. With phase one of treatment done, Andrea's next steps will be radiation and surgery.

5) We're off to a crisp and cool start with temperatures in the 50s. Kelly Greene says it will be fantastic fall-like day with temperatures only climbing into the upper 70s, leading into another cool overnight with lows in the mid 50s. More clouds arrive tomorrow with a chance of a shower late afternoon and evening.
