Banner at State Roads 46 & 229Batesville, In. — October is “Domestic Violence Awareness Month” and community outreach coordinator Mary Mattingly reminds the public that every nine seconds an American woman is the victim of domestic violence. “We see it in southeast Indiana, right here in the picturesque and quiet rural communities which people often compare to Mayberry,” said Jane Yorn, Executive Director and founder of Safe Passage. “Yet Domestic Violence does not discriminate by location, age, income, education or race. Since we started Safe Passage in 1997, we have helped over 12,000 victims and their children of domestic violence. Unfortunately, the numbers continue to increase. “Safe Passage, Inc. is the sole provider of services for domestic violence victims in Jefferson, Ripley, Dearborn, Franklin, Ohio and Switzerland Counties.DV Awareness month kicked off Sept. 30 in Brookville, with a Handbags 4 Hope fundraiser for Safe Passage. Fifty new and gently used purses were auctioned, and over 100 guests heard a compelling personal story from a local domestic violence survivor. Mayor Mike Bettice signed a proclamation earlier this month announcing October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.Purple ribbons and banners have been placed in highly visible spots in the six counties, including downtown Batesville and at the intersection of SR 46 and SR 229. Also, SP staff will wear symbolic purple ribbons all month, and distribute to the social service agencies, schools, and organization, to remind them of the plight of these victims but also that there is nearby support to facilitate healing and independence.On Oct. 26, domestic violence will be the focus of a community critical issues forum, sponsored by several organizations, at the YMCA in Batesville. Experts in the field, including law enforcement will address the impact it has on schools, businesses, health care and other factors in the community. The panel includes: Melissa Burton, Director of Student Learning at Batesville Community School Corp.; Kip Main, ISP Master Trooper Detective; Ashley Brittain, Human Resources Generalist at Batesville; Trish Hunter, Director of Innovation and Lean at Margaret Mary Health and who is also the Safe Passage Board President; and Liz Leising, Chief Nursing Officer at MMH. Registration starts at 11 am. with the complimentary luncheon beginning at 11:30 to 1 p.m. (Reservations are requested by calling the YMCA at 812-933-6006 by Oct. 24.) read more

Alright Packer fans, time for a team meeting. Yeah, most of us probably don’t live in Green Bay and aren’t stockholders, so we don’t actually own the team. But I asked my stockholder buddy if I could say ‘we,’ and he said it’s okay since they robbed Milwaukee of its home games back in the day. First order of business: Ted ThompsonAnyone who hadn’t heard of the guy before the offseason probably thought his official title was “that idiot.” So after all those months of going after him, let’s give the guy some props. Yeah, we don’t have Randy Moss, but we’re far enough under the cap to ensure a prosperous post-Favre era and the team is 6-1. The Greg Jennings/James Jones gamble paid off, and now we’ve got two cheap, highly productive receivers. (Yeah, I know. Dave Clowney was a bust, but who knew he couldn’t carry his pads?) I’ll be the first to criticize his lackluster management of the Seahawks once they became a decent team, so we’ll have to see if he’s willing to let the Packers take the next step. For now, though, in the words of John Madden circa the 93′ edition of his game, “Now that’s the way to catch a ball in a crowd.”Next on the agenda: The run gameI’ll admit, before the season I was actually excited about it. We saw flashes of greatness from Vernand Morency last year, looking like Ahman 2.0 at times. But now that he’s essentially healthy and was behind DeShawn Wynn on the depth chart before the Broncos game, it’s clear both Coach McCarthy and I were fairly desperate. First, it was Brandon Jackson, a selection that I can’t understand to this day. Anyone who watched Nebraska games last year could see that this guy is physically talented, but couldn’t run his way out of a paper bag equipped with runway lights, a compass and OnStar. Here’s the standard play-by-play for a Brandon Jackson run: “Favre hands to Jackson, he accelerates into his own offensive lineman, he churns his legs and doesn’t change direction. … Can someone make sure I’m not watching a video game? And he goes down. It’s a one-yard gain.” But to be fair, it’s hard to find the hole when you run with your eyes closed.Then we saw some brilliance from Wynn. He’s certainly a competent back, and if he can ever stay healthy (something Florida fans would chuckle at) he could be a 1,000-yard back in this league. Still, from memories of his college days and what we’ve seen so far, he doesn’t have great eyes. Nonetheless, the potential is there. Finally, Monday night we saw Ryan Grant. Since we spared him from the Giants’ practice squad, he’s run hard and reaches full speed in two steps. As an added bonus (for this year’s group anyway), he runs toward the hole rather than that orange spot in the back of his eyelids. Still, he’s not a 22-carry per game guy yet. By the end of Monday night’s game, he had lost more than a step. Ideally, he’s a spell-back, but who knows? The pressure of being No. 1 might force him to step up and become a Dorsey Levens-type back. Overall, the zone-blocking scheme hasn’t worked well so far — it’s full of holes and everything develops way too slowly, sort of like an episode of “Weeds”. But hey, we shouldn’t lose hope for the playoffs just because the run game will likely be inconsistent. Just look back to Monday night’s game plan — passes and deceptive runs. Against the Broncos, everyone expected the Pack to come out running, and Coach McCarthy successfully deluded the media and his opponents, opening the game with pass after pass. Although it didn’t exactly work in the first drive, it left the Broncos D off-balance for the rest of the night.Another point of order: The defensive line The line is the ultimate vindication of former head coach Mike Sherman’s vision for the team. These guys are quite simply amazing. Make no mistake about it, the defensive line is the reason the Packers are 6-1. It’s the same risky defensive scheme as previous years, with the exception of timely up-the-middle pressure. There’s about a dozen of these guys and first-round selection Justin Harrell is rarely one of them. He may be a Ted Thompson bomb, but who knows? Now that he sees himself at the end of the depth cart, Harrell might show up to camp next year in NFL shape. Plus, talk to most Tennessee fans, and they’ll tell you how tenacious he can be in the middle.Finally: The playoffsLet’s face it; this is the NFC. We don’t have two nearly unbeatable teams to worry about. The Packers can get through to the Super Bowl if they minimize mistakes and win a toss-up game against the Cowboys. Sure, the only thing on the line may be the privilege to get torn apart by the Colts or Patriots, but the game is only played once, and stranger things have happened. Bassey Etim has officially adjourned this meeting. Additional points of preference can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you still think Vernand Morency can be a pro -bowler someday, please give me some hope. read more
Dem straight · John Thomas, president and CEO of Thomas Partners Strategies, speaks as part of a panel discussion about the first Democratic primary debate Wednesday afternoon in the Ronald Tutor Campus Center. The event was hosted by the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics. – Mariya Dondonyan | Daily TrojanFollowing Tuesday’s Democratic primary debate, students met with a panel of guest speakers Wednesday afternoon to discuss issues such as the rise of Bernie Sanders and the overall state of the Democratic Party. The Students Talk Back event, hosted by the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics, analyzed the debate from multiple perspectives and provided a forum for students to ask questions and provide insight on the race for the Democratic primary.Guest panelists included Dario Frommer, a former California Assembly Majority Leader and current Unruh Institute Legislator-in-Residence and John Thomas, a consultant and strategist for Republican candidates throughout the state of California. Students also heard from Christina Wilkes, president of the USC College Democrats, and Leesa Danzek, vice president of the USC College Republicans. The debate was moderated by Unruh Institute Director Dan Schnur and Daily Trojan News Assignments Editor Jack Walker.Key issues discussed during the panel included the controversies surrounding Hillary Clinton, who remains the Democratic frontrunner despite having been plagued with accusations over her use of private email servers. Though some believe the email scandal has damaged Clinton’s campaign — leading Wilkes to call it “the scandal that keeps on giving” — others felt that Tuesday’s debate gave Clinton a chance to defend herself.“This was her format,” Thomas said. “I think she did a great job and that she hit her marks — this really was her place to shine.”Maya Dondonyan | Daily TrojanThough some felt that Clinton’s performance might be strong enough to detract from the email scandal, Danzek believed that, ultimately, Tuesday’s debate would not change how voters felt about Clinton.“I think that, at the end of the day, no matter how the debate went, it secured beliefs for both Democrats and Republicans,” Danzek said, pointing out that Clinton’s achievements as secretary of state can be interpreted differently depending on which political party is analyzing them.Many students were eager to hear about the performance of dark horse candidate Bernie Sanders, who has been surging in the polls recently due to his progressive policies and appeal as a self-identified democratic socialist. Despite his popularity with certain members of the electorate, however, Frommer said that he still cannot gain widespread appeal with voters across the nation.“Bernie Sanders is going to do well in states where you have a high percentage of Democratic voters who are white, well-educated, a little better off — I think that’s an appeal,” Frommer said. “If you look at some other states where you have a lot of voters who are Latino, African American or Asian American, it’s a different story. And that’s the challenge for Sanders — how do you get through that gauntlet?”Maya Dondonyan | Daily TrojanWednesday’s panel also discussed issues such as the contrast between the Democratic and Republican debates, with several panelists pointing out that Tuesday’s debate was much more respectful and controlled, with fewer targeted attacks toward specific candidates.“A lot of us expected a debate where candidates who are desperate for points were really going to jump on Hillary, but nobody did,” Frommer said. “They made their points respectfully, and they didn’t come after her very hard.”Schnur and others from the Unruh Institute believe that the panel provided a more analytical approach to the debate, which allowed students to consider the issues from a different perspective.“People have very strong opinions on who they think ought to be the next president, and they tend to argue very strongly and very loudly on behalf of their preferred candidate,” Schnur said. “What I like about this kind of program is that it’s not yelling, it’s not screaming — it’s conversation. For someone who’s not decided on which candidate they want to support, we’re giving them an opportunity to think about those candidates in a different context.” read more
