The Purdue Extension Nutrition Education Program (NEP) is partnering with Health by Design to present a series of workshops this summer and fall designed to help seven Indiana communities become healthier, as well as more walkable, bikeable and accessible for people of all ages and abilities. The City of Huntingburg is one of the hosts of the Active Living Workshop.
Community Wellness Coordinator Ashlee Sudbury submitted the application on behalf of the city, and the workshops were selected through a competitive process.
Seven cities were chosen to hold workshops through September 2016: Huntingburg, Bedford, Evansville, Huntington, Linton, Plymouth and Rochester.
Indiana houses a wide variety of landmarks, likely because almost anything — pools, roads, shipwrecks, you name it — can be granted the distinction.
Laura Renwick, community preservation specialist with Indiana Landmark’s southern regional office in Jeffersonville, described landmark as a “loose term” because there’s no set reason for a structure to be considered a landmark, as long as it’s 50 years old or older.
A Jasper native has returned home and is opening a new chiropractic office in the city next week.
Dr. Ross Hartings will open Active Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Clinic with a grand opening on Tuesday on the top of the “Y” at 725 W. Sixth St.
Next Act, the Jasper Community Arts Commission, the Jasper Public Library and representatives of the city’s downtown area are collaborating to raise $8 million for improvements in the center of the city.
The collaboration is under the umbrella of Jasper LEADs, and it has already received its first donation — $1.7 million from Jim and Pat Thyen.
The Huntingburg Airport will host its first remote control plane fly-in Saturday.
The inaugural fly-in — which is officially called a Radio Control Aviation Appreciation Fly In and will be launched in collaboration with Jasper R/C Flyers Club — will allow people to watch remote control airplanes cruise around the airport and even let guests bring their own remote control airplane to fly.
Tri-Cap preschoolers will be able to explore a musical playground starting next week.
The local organization, which has offices in Dubois, Pike, Warrick and Vanderburgh counties, has operated on a mission to provide health, housing and educational services and empower local residents to achieve personal and economic comfort for the last 50 years. Most recently, Tri-Cap was selected as the charity of choice for the Jasper Rotary Club.
n Girls on the Run, you make the most of everything. You accept. You appreciate. You welcome. You encourage. You include. You adjust. You learn. You work. You celebrate. You smile. The national program is in its second year in Dubois County and has already more than doubled in size. Last Saturday was the grand finale, a 3.1-mile run on the heels of a three-month curriculum in which third-, fourth- and fifth-grade girls met twice a week to blend fitness with self-confidence and self-discovery. It’s a program that can change a girl (and those around) her for the better.
