    I represent a majority portion of the residents of the City of Wabash as a County Councilman. As such, when Wabash was chosen as one of the two finalists for the Stellar Grant in 2014, I went in search of answers to how the proposals would affect my constituents. To the average citizen, the feeling of winning the Stellar Grant puts a lot of hometown pride in their hearts for a month or so. When the hype settles, people start to ask questions.

    In the evening of March 13, 2013, after the College of Cardinals elected Pope Francis, he appeared on the balcony to speak to the thousands collected in St. Peter’s Square, and millions watched and listened to broadcasts from afar. He spoke plainly and briefly, but his words prepared the world for his future actions, his political and social campaigns, and his arrival Tuesday (Sept. 22) in the United States as part of his Love is Our Mission tour.

    Tuesday, Sept. 8 is an important and busy day for Montgomery County.

    On that day, the Montgomery County Health Department, Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health – Crawfordsville and the Montgomery County Wellness Coalition will launch the 2015 Community Health Needs Assessment Survey.

    The survey is a requirement for both the hospital as part of the Affordable Care Act and the health department for their national accreditation process.

    But it’s not just the health department or the hospital that benefit from the survey. You, your family, your neighbors and your community benefit from this survey. Your input on health, wellness and other issues facing our community help area social service agencies, local governments and community organizations with addressing those issues or concerns. This is your opportunity to let us know what you think about these issues.

    Back to School

    As the summer break draws to a close, students across the state are returning to the classroom. During the 2015 legislative session, lawmakers supported a number of initiatives aimed at helping students and schools have a successful 2015-2016 school year.

    Here is a brief look at a few policies adopted this year:

    The new state budget allocates over half of Indiana’s General Fund dollars to K-12 education.

    Indiana’s most effective teachers will be eligible to receive $30 million in bonuses from the Teacher Performance Grant program. For the first time, school boards are able to make these bonuses part of the teachers’ permanent salaries.

    As new drugs and medical devices are developed, it’s understandable that the public, always in love with new technologies, want to use them. They also want them to be safe, and most people think they are. It comes down to a balancing act that will soon be tested in Washington.

    In the fall the U.S. Senate is likely to approve legislation that shifts the scales more in the direction of getting “cures” to market faster, and that could be a big step backward in regulating medical devices – things like breast implants, coronary stents and artificial knees.

    Just five years ago, Congress passed a big, widely hailed law that promised to make America’s food supply safer. But because of inadequate funding for new regulations and inspectors, the promise has yet to be kept.

    Sometimes cutting government spending has serious consequences, and there’s no better example of that than what’s happened to the Food Safety Modernization Act.

    In 2010 Congress enacted legislation whose goal was to set tough anti-contamination standards for foods ranging from peaches to imported pesto sauces and to increase the number of inspectors for the increasingly complex food system.

    The term “that’s why you play the game – to see who will win,” was coined by legendary Kentucky basketball coach Adolph Rupp in 1965.

    Now that many Indiana basketball fans have quit reading this article, I’d like to explore a few upsets in sports history.
