If we are able to maintain this and then combine it with some of these measures, we could see a real difference in parts of the region.”GSC Grays Calum Gillhespy Brownfield sites boom North-East housing boom July 31, 2020Richard ReedWhat’s your opinion?

Coronavirus infecting Indiana’s once $2.3 billion reserve fund

first_imgCoronavirusIndianaLocalNews WhatsApp By Network Indiana – July 19, 2020 0 325 Google+ Facebook WhatsApp (“Indiana State Capitol Building” by Drew Tarvin, CC BY 2.0) Coronavirus has infected the state’s once $2.3 billion reserve fund. The state auditor found that Indiana has $1.4 billion to end this fiscal year. Despite a budget shortfall, Indiana is not in the red.Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the state used about $900 million to make up for the tax money that was not collected and the income taxes that haven’t been paid yet. The state set a new deadline of July 15, which falls in the next budget year.The fiscal year 2020 ended June 30.The auditor, governor and others are tooting the administration’s horn, saying strong fiscal management has left the state able, and more able than many other states, to deal with the shortfalls.“Our strong reserves have sustained Indiana through the initial surge of the pandemic, and in light of the unexpected economic circumstances, the State is able to continue to offer essential services when our residents need it most,” said State Auditor Tera Klutz. “Responsible fiscal leadership leaves Indiana with a 9 percent reserve as we head into a new fiscal year facing more economic uncertainty.”Gov. Eric Holcomb echoed Klutz, upon reading the End of Year reports.“As our state works to slow the spread of coronavirus, I’m grateful for the years of exceptional stewardship that has allowed Indiana to be financially prepared to face this storm. We will remain dedicated to ensuring Hoosiers receive services without interruption while maintaining Indiana’s trademark fiscal responsibility as we adjust to this new normal,” he said.

Author Robert Schmuhl shares the story behind the iconic Hesburgh-King photo

first_imgIn June 1964, University President Emeritus Fr. Theodore Hesburgh was sitting at his desk when he received a phone call. The civil rights movement was in full swing, and the Catholic priest’s services were needed at a rally in Chicago. According to a report from Notre Dame Magazine, then-Chicago mayor Richard Daley and a series of officials from the Catholic Church had all declined to attend.“Hesburgh received a call at his office in the Main Building that he was needed to speak at the civil rights rally in Chicago,” Robert Schmuhl, an American Studies professor who has written a book about Hesburgh, said in an email. “Without hesitating, he decided to go, and his only question was to ask what time he had to arrive to participate.”Rev. Theodore Hesburgh stands arm-in-arm with Martin Luther King Jr., both singing in what is now an iconic image of the two men participating in a march.On June 21, 1964, Hesburgh took the stage at the Illinois Rally for Civil Rights at Chicago’s Soldier Field, according to a Notre Dame Archives webpage on Hesburgh’s life. Per the webpage, anywhere between 57,000 and 75,000 people attended the event. The rally took place at a tense moment in the civil rights movement: the same day the rally took place, three young activists were murdered in Mississippi while participating in “Freedom Summer,” an effort to register African American voters, according to the archives.While at the rally, Hesburgh joined hands with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who was also present at the rally. The result was the now-instantly recognizable photo of Notre Dame’s president singing while standing arm-in-arm with King. According to Notre Dame Magazine, the figures were singing “We Shall Overcome” when the photographer snapped the picture.Hesburgh was no stranger to the civil rights movement — he was a longtime member of the federal government’s Civil Rights Commission, ultimately serving on the commission under four different presidential administrations.“Hesburgh was one of the original members of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission that was established by President Dwight Eisenhower,” Schmuhl said. “He also served on the commission during the Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon administrations.”While the photo is well-known today, it did not become famous until well after it was taken. Schmuhl said, to his knowledge, it is unknown who took the photo. Hesburgh himself was unaware the image even existed until years after the fact.“[Hesburgh] was presented with the photo after a lecture he delivered at Emory University in Atlanta,” Schmuhl said. “Previous to that, he was unaware of the picture.”Tags: Civil Rights, Fr.
