Governor Pence Signs Military Family Relief Fund Bill

first_imgGovernor Mike Pence signed a bill that will help Hoosier heroes and their families by expanding access to the Military Family Relief Fund.“Veterans face higher rates of unemployment than the general population, as well as other hardships,” said Governor Pence. “Helping our Hoosier veterans who served our nation and sacrificed their lives to protect our freedom is the right thing to do.”Under Senate Enrolled Act Bill 352, approximately 26,000 post-911 veterans will be eligible to apply for assistance through the Military Family Relief Fund. The bill eliminates the three-year restriction on access to the fund, which provides grants that may be used for needs such as food, housing, utilities, medical services, transportation and other essential family expenses. The Military Family Relief Fund has a balance of more than $7 million, and lifting the cap will ensure those funds are available to support Hoosier veterans and their families. The new law becomes effective on July 1, 2014.Last year, during the Governor’s first year in office, the Pence Administration announced a budget and the legislature passed bills that made a clear commitment to Hoosiers who have served our nation in uniform, from investing more money in job training to certifying Veteran Service Officers in every Indiana county, in order to ensure our heroes get the benefits they deserve. The administration also set a State procurement goal of 3 percent for veteran-owned businesses and established higher education tuition breaks for veterans.last_img read more

Carl Edwards

first_imgCarl Edwards shocked NASCAR fans when he recently announced his retirement from active driving.  Edwards stated that he was going to retire to his Missouri “ranch”.  Edwards owns a small farm in Missouri.I am sure that some recent driver deaths and the changing dynamics of the cars today had a lot to do with his decision.  Edwards has small children.  When NASCAR’s most popular driver, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., missed most of last season with a concussion, this had to influence his decision.  Afterall, when you finish second in the final standings, you don’t expect a relatively young driver to retire.I am sure Carl Edwards will find another job in racing that does not require the danger of driving 200 mph around a high-banked track in a car not much bigger than the one you and I drive on the streets.  Will NASCAR try to restrict the engine power soon?  In recent years, I think one or more cars have left the track surface like they were an airplane taking off.last_img

Sportiello is the first coronavirus positive in Atalanta

first_imgThe club reported that the goalkeeper is well, he is currently asymptomatic and the rest of the group will end his home isolation on March 27. The list of Calcium players suffering from the new disease continues to lengthen: Rugani, Matuidi, Dybala (Juve), Gabbiadini, Colley, Ekdal, La Gumina, Thorsby, Depaoli, Bereszynsky (Sampdoria), Vlahovic, Cutrone, Pezzella (Fiorentina), Zaccagni (Verona), Daniel Maldini (Milan, who also confirmed the positive from his father Paolo) and Sportiello (Atalanta). Marco Sportiello is the first Atalanta player positive to COVID-19. The Nerazzurro team, despite being located in Bergamo, the city hardest hit by the coronavirus with almost 7,000 cases, still had no infection, and was placed in preventive quarantine due to the cases that affected Valencia, its last rival in the match. of the Champions League from last March 10. Given this scenario, resuming training, something that teams like Lazio and Naples wanted to do this week, seems impossible until at least mid-April. The doctors from the Calcio teams signed an agreement that foresees the gradual return to individual work from April 4 and to group work from 13, although everything will depend on the development of the emergency in the transalpine country.last_img read more
