Latest Stories “Imagine a world full of weirdness,” she said. “Imagine a world where people believed the end time was approaching and a world fill with political corruption and dissension, economic inequity and environmental decay. Imagine a world with fervent adherence to traditions, mythologies, and polarizing religious beliefs. A world of greed, power and fundamentalist certitude.”And, there’s the other side of the exhibition – what the saints will deliver and offer at the end of times.“It’s a powerful exhibition,” Drinkard said.“Intriguing,” said Drinkwater. “I loved the pieces. They are interactive. Although there are ‘Do not touch’ signs all around, you are drawn to the texture and want to touch. The detail is incredible and that makes all of the artwork so interesting.” Sponsored Content The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… “At first glance, I was shocked,” Drinkwater said. “Good art is sometimes shocking and the ‘Faith, Magic, Love and Death,’ exhibit is good art. Very good art.”The exhibition features six nationally acclaimed artists and all of the artwork was created based on the “end time” theme.The idea behind this traveling exhibit is that all the pieces represent the approaching end of the world, said Morgan Drinkard, Johnson Center director.

The new West Lake Corridor will add two more stations in Hammond, and create an eight-mile southern leg to Munster and Dyer. The extension will bring rail service 10 minutes closer to Crown Point, the county seat.The new line is scheduled to start service in five years.State, local and federal governments are each paying roughly a third of the cost. Legislators included 200-million dollars for the project in the current two-year budget. Governor Holcomb predicts a significant return on the investment. He says creating easier connections to Chicago, which he notes is the nation’s third-largest economy, will instantly make Lake County more marketable.South Shore president Michael Noland says the new service from Munster will let travelers reach Chicago in 45 minutes, faster than the city’s notoriously congested expressways will allow.

Messer announces plans to introduce ‘Safe School’ legislation

first_imgShelby County, In. — Republican congressman from the 6th District in Indiana and candidate for U.S. Senate Luke Messer recently visited Southwestern High School, named the “Safest School in America,” and announced he will author legislation to help more schools adopt these security innovations.Southwestern High School in Shelby County teamed up with Virginia-based Net Talon to install a state-of-the-art security system. The school is equipped with key fobs for administrators to contact police, cameras that police also have access to 24-hours-a-day, automatically locking doors and a crisis reporting system. The system has a cost of about $400,000.The system was installed after the Indiana Sheriff’s Association selected the school as a test project.Messer’s “Safe Schools Act” would enable local schools to apply for matching grants to make physical and technological improvements to their schools to better protect students.“Like every American, I am deeply saddened by the tragedy in Parkland,” Messer said. “I drop my kids off at school and like every parent, I should not have to wonder if they will come home that day. We need to focus on securing our schools to keep our students safe rather than going after law-abiding gun owners.”last_img read more
