Wednesday, the state said it wouldn’t honor the same-sex marriages performed last month. What’s the city’s position on that question?
You and John Dennis have advocated the creation of a single-entry agency which could help address homeless issues in Tippecanoe County. Where might you find the money that would be needed to pay for running such a thing? What do you think it’ll cost?
Does the city plan to change its fireworks ordinance to change the number of days (or the hours during the day) it's legal to fire them off?
Earlier this week, the Tippecanoe County Coroner requested, and received, and additional $80,000 for her budget.
WBAA’s Kristin Malavenda spoke with Donna Avolt about the problems she says are contributing to the increase in deaths in the county and whether the corresponding increase in the budget is a trend that will continue.
Indiana will not recognize same sex marriages performed between a federal judge’s ruling striking down the state’s gay marriage ban and an appeals court order halting that decision.
Federal judge Richard Young ruled Indiana’s ban on same sex marriage unconstitutional in an order handed down late last month. Two days later, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a stay of that ruling, halting its effects.
The Indiana State Museum is looking for items related to the experience of Indiana‘s Jewish community. Senior vice president Susannah Koerber says the museum is in search of objects from everyday Jewish life, from sports equipment to items families brought along when they first came to America.
"They could be objects other immigrant families brought with them that maybe helped them link their original home and their new home," says Keorber. "Things that people used as part of their everyday activities."
Purdue University will sell more beer and wine at football games this fall, but only in one section of Ross-Ade Stadium. The bleachers have been removed from the south end of the stadium, and while permanent plans are still being drawn up, the area will feature the South End Zone Patio this season.
Video games have long been known to improve hand-eye coordination. Now, a Purdue study shows that may be of particular use to veterinary surgeons.
The research suggests video games may be better tools than the so-called “box trainers” vets currently use to learn laparoscopic surgery.
A box trainer is usually made from PVC pipe that's covered by a cloth to hide what's inside (usually rings which students are told to put on posts). The catch is that has to be done using two arms with mechanical fingers on the end.
