<![CDATA[HAMMOND, Ind. (AP) -- Hammond's school superintendent is hospitalized in critical condition after being badly beaten during what police say was a home invasion. Hammond police Lt. Richard Hoyda says School City of Hammond Superintendent Walter Watkins suffered extensive head injuries and a fractured jaw in the attack late Monday or Tuesday morning. The 67-year-old Watkins is being treated at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Illinois. Hospital spokesman Tony Ellis says Watkins remained in critical condition Wednesday. Hoyda tells The Times of Munster (http://bit.ly/1iXlASg ) Watkins' sister found her brother conscious but barely coherent Tuesday when she stopped by his house to bring him breakfast. At the time, Watkins' home was darkened by a widespread power outage following severe overnight storms. Hoyda says police don't have a motive in the attack.
