Some areas are especially vulnerable as they are still recovering from previous hurricane damage.The Indiana Region of the American Red Cross has fast-tracked its Disaster Action Team (DAT) training. New volunteers can now quickly learn basic response and recovery skills, and be ready to deploy to a disaster location.Volunteers should be willing and able to:Accept a two-week deployment;Live in a communal space (i.e., a shelter); andWork 12 hours per day, 6-7 days each week.Those interested in volunteering should visit or call (888) 648-1441.Other ways to help include sending donations, which can be done by visiting, calling 800-RED-CROSS or texting the “REDCROSS”to 90999, or by scheduling an appointment to donate blood at Red Cross can move donated blood around the country to wherever it’s needed most.

Poly-Sci Professor: President Trump will likely win Indiana, but with smaller victory than 2016

But, his victory in the Hoosier State may not be as large as it was four years ago.“I think Donald Trump’s still gonna carry Indiana. I think when Barrack Obama carried Indiana in 2008, it was kind of a fluke. However, it seems like the president’s standing has eroded all over the Midwest,” said Kyle Kondik, a political scientist at the University of Virginia.Kondik was a guest on WISH TV’s All INdiana Politics, and was brought in for some outside perspective on what Hoosier may do Tuesday.“Maybe the margin in Indiana is gonna be lower than 2015,” he said. Trump won the state by 20 points.Trump’s surrogate, Tony Samnuel, has predicted a 22 point victory for his boss. But, Kondik believes it will be lower and believes what is happening with the 5th Congressional District may be an indication.That district, which includes the northern suburbs of Indianapolis, is a toss-up between Republican Victoria Spartz and Democrat Christina Hale, to replace Susan Brooks, a Republican. The district has traditionally been Republican.“To the extent that the president underperforms in Indiana, the places you might see him erode the most include parts of Indiana 5, I think,” said Kondik. He believes that’s a reflection of what that kind of voter is thinking in the Midwest and to an extent, all over the country.“The president’s losing ground in a lot of different places, but particularly in highly-educated districts, like Indiana 5.”Over one and a half million Hoosiers have already voted, which is over half of the entire vote in 2016. Kondik believes it’s entirely possible that a winner for president won’t be decided by Wednesday morning.last_img read more

LaGrange County once again a “hippie-friendly” community

first_img Pinterest By Network Indiana – January 6, 2021 0 325 (95.3 MNC) For the first time in nearly 50 years, LaGrange county is once again a “hippie-friendly” community.The county has repealed a law from 1971 that county commissioner Dennis Kratz called their “anti-hippie ordinance.”The law blocked large gatherings that lasted more than 12 hours and involved more than 500 people, as a result of the 1969 Woodstock music festival in New York.The law was dropped as part of an effort to transfer LaGrange County laws into an electronically searchable format. As part of this process, many old laws, including the anti-hippie ordinance, are being dropped, as they no longer serve a practical purpose. Many of those laws were related to traffic and road signs that no longer exist.LaGrange County Attorney Kurt Bachman, who has been working on the project for three years, says many of the documents he read were more than 100 years old.

Indiana lawmakers to vote on whether to allow delivery robots

first_img Facebook Twitter By Network Indiana – March 10, 2021 0 236 Pinterest Previous articleSouth Bend Cubs hiring for the upcoming seasonNext articleNational Weather Service making enhancements to Severe Thunderstorm Warnings Network Indiana Google+ IndianaLocalNews Facebook Indiana lawmakers to vote on whether to allow delivery robots Pinterest Google+ WhatsApp (“Indiana State Capitol Building” by Drew Tarvin, CC BY 2.0) You’re a step closer to getting your next pizza delivery by robot:The Senate could vote next week to let delivery robots operate alongside pedestrians on streets and sidewalks. It’s not illegal now — Purdue has had robot deliveries for a couple of years. But the bill would explicitly make them legal.Delivery companies including Amazon and FedEx, and businesses including Pizza Hut, Walgreens, and AutoZone, use robot fleets to make immediate short-haul deliveries. The bots are about the size of a picnic cooler and move about as fast as you can walk, with sensors telling them when they need to back up or go around an obstacle.Purdue procurement manager Brett Decker says the giant mountains of plowed snow after last month’s storm stumped the robots, but they’ve otherwise operated problem-free. He says the bots have been overwhelmingly popular, with students able to have food or coffee waiting for them when they leave class or when they arrive for their next one.Jenna Knepper with the local government group AIM says cities and towns are “excited” about the robots, as long as they can set rules on things like where the robots are allowed to operate. The bill authored by Evansville Representative Holli Sullivan (R) would prohibit cities and towns from banning the robots entirely, limiting what they can carry, or regulating their design, but would allow other local rules.FedEx lobbyist Chris Mitchum says the bill is written broadly to allow new robot technologies, as long as they meet basic operating and safety standards.The House unanimously approved the bill last month.
