VOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP: TAX TIME

Details RICHARD A. STEVENSON

One of my least favorite times of year is upon us. Not only is the weather still chilly and dreary, it is tax time. As most of you know already, Federal and State income tax returns are due on Monday, April 15. Many of us struggle with filling out those tax forms and could use some help.

But, we also don't want to spend a bunch of money or don't have the money to pay for tax help. If we are getting a refund, we don't want that refund eaten up by tax preparation and other fees often charged by...

MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR: RIVERFRONT DEVELOPMENT STUDY

I recently joined with Legacy Fort Wayne leaders to discuss the request for proposals (RFP) for a Riverfront Development Study for the City of Fort Wayne. This will be the first comprehensive look at the City's rivers to determine opportunities to enhance the riverfront.

We are currently seeking proposals from qualified consultants and consultant teams. Proposals are due on April 12 and interviews with finalists will occur in May. A final selection is expected to be made this summer. It's...

STRAIGHT FROM THE SENATE : 20 MINUTES ABOARD THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION

Details SENATOR LONG

The Indiana Senate had the unique opportunity last week to host a conversation with NASA Commander Kevin Ford live from the International Space Station. We watched from our desks as NASA mission control in Houston beamed us through to Commander Ford, who floated into our field of vision on the video screen in the Senate Chamber.

Commander Ford, a Hoosier native and brother of the late Indiana State Sen. David Ford, is just over 100 days in to his five-month stint aboard the space station. He...

VOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP: SMOKING

Details RICAHRD A STEVENSON

A presentation on smoking cessation may seem a little unusual for an employment training class. But, smoking can impact our clients in numerous ways in their quest to find employment and in their quest to move from assistance to independence. That is why I'm always delighted when our Wayne Township Board Chair Patricia Turner agrees to speak to our employment class about the importance of stopping smoking.

Ms. Turner speaks about smoking cessation through her affiliation with Quit Now Indiana...

STRAIGHT FROM THE SENATE: SUPPORTING WOMEN’S HEALTH AT THE LOCAL, STATE LEVEL

Details SUPPORTING WOMEN’S HEALTH AT THE LOCAL, STATE LEVEL

There's an old saying that without our health, we have nothing. I'm sure most of us agree with this sentiment, and hold our health and the health of our loved ones above all else. Ensuring Hoosiers have access to high-quality, affordable health care is one of the most important causes of our time, and yet it's also one of the most challenging.

As state leaders grapple with how Indiana should respond to the federal Affordable Care Act in a way that works best for Hoosiers, we are left with many...
