Faith Leaders Urge Governor To Support Gun-Control Legislation

first_imgFaith in Indiana, which describes itself as a catalyst to seek racial and economic justice, was joined by members of the gun-control Moms Demand Action at the Statehouse to spur Holcomb to take steps in Indiana to prevent hate-inspired violence in the wake of recent mass shootings in California, Ohio, and Texas that left 34 people dead and more than 60 wounded.“These are not individual acts of bigotry but systemic acts that require systemic action,” said the Rev. Shonda Nicole Gladden, CEO and founder of Good to the Soul and a member of Faith in Indiana. “We are here because our governor does not have to wait for Congress to protect Indiana families.” By Abrahm HurtTheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS– Faith leaders and gun-control activists are calling for Gov. Eric Holcomb to stand up against white supremacy and gun violence, including supporting a ban on assault weapons.“The dehumanizing rhetoric and speeches from our highest office have put us on a dangerous course toward the normalization of a renewed, open and more emboldened white nationalism,” the group Faith in Indiana said in a letter delivered to Holcomb’s Statehouse office Tuesday morning. “Coupled with easy access to guns, this ideology has created a white terrorism crisis.” Print Friendly, PDF & EmailFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare More than 30 attendees stood on the south steps of the Statehouse to pray and sing “This Land is Your Land” before entering the capital.Members of the group asked to meet with the governor but were told he was unavailable. They then left the letter, signed by more than 100 clergy members.The letter – which asks for a meeting with Holcomb within the next 60 days “so that together we can build a safer and more inclusive Indiana” — lays out three pieces of legislation the group would like to see.“We urge you promptly to condemn the weaponization of hate and the ideology of white supremacy and introduce gun safety legislation in the 2020 legislative session: ban assault weapons, mandate background checks and invest in public health approaches proven to curb gun violence,” the letter states.The group also called on U.S. Senators Todd Young and Mike Braun, both R-Indiana, to support House Resolution 8, a universal background check bill that passed the U.S. House of Representatives but has not received a vote in the U.S. Senate.The Rev. David W. Greene Sr., a senior pastor at Purpose of Life Ministries and president of Concerned Clergy of Indianapolis, said the faith-based community refuses to remain silent and called on leaders to act swiftly.“We must move beyond thoughts and prayers to action,” he said. Holcomb’s press secretary, Rachel Hoffmeyer, said the governor’s office will review the letter.“There is no higher priority than the safety and security of Hoosiers,” Hoffmeyer said. “Indiana works to prevent tragedies through efforts including our red flag law, school safety funding and legislation, and partnerships through local, state and federal law enforcement officials.”At a ceremonial bill signing last week at the Indiana State Fair on veterans’ benefits legislation, Holcomb denounced white supremacy.“This is counter-American. It’s counter-Hoosier,” he said. “It’s not what we stand for. Any supremacist groups that seek to terrorize or cause fear in our population needs to be held accountable for that.”In April, Holcomb went to the National Rifle Association convention in Indianapolis to sign House Enrolled Act 1284, which allows guns on school property if the carrier is working at or attending a religious service there. The bill also expanded the “stand your ground law” by saying someone who uses a gun in what was deemed justifiable self-defense cannot be sued in civil court.FOOTNOTE: Abrahm Hurt is a reporter for TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalists.last_img read more

Lowered “time-price” of food to blame for rising obesity, says HSPH expert

first_img Read Full Story HSPH Professor Steven Gortmaker believes that there is a simple explanation for the globally skyrocketing rates of obesity in recent decades. It is now easy to obtain fast and cheap food at all hours of the day and night, giving eating a much lower “time-price” than in previous generations. People are exercising at about the same rate that they were 20 years ago, Gortmaker, professor of the practice of health sociology and director of the Harvard School of Public Health Prevention Research Center, told an HSPH audience on July 19, 2011, as part of the School’s Hot Topics series, but the food environment they face every day has changed.Constantly eating and drinking has become the norm, Gortmaker said. It is easier than ever to get cheap, high-calorie food and sugary beverages at all hours of the day and night, and kids are particularly vulnerable. Aggressively targeted by marketers of unhealthy foods and beverages, and surrounded by vending machines and fast food restaurants during the school day, unhealthy choices become their default.“We need to alter the environment where children spend their time so that it’s easy to make healthy diet and physical activity choices,” Gortmaker said. “You can’t just leave it to individual choice.” He said a good start would be to take unhealthy products out of vending machines at schools and make sure free water is available.last_img read more

first_imgUniversity of GeorgiaDeer find roses, hydrangeas, hostas and day lilies delectable, much to the dismay of Georgia gardeners. Find out how to shoo them away on this week’s ‘Gardening in Georgia’ on Georgia Public Broadcasting Sept. 20 and 22. Show host Walter Reeves, a retired University of Georgia Cooperative Extension agent and gardening expert, makes no promises the brew will be a permanent repellant.

At the Atlanta Botanical Garden, Mildred Fockele guides Reeves among several shrubs that have tiny blooms but marvelously colored fruit. ABG experts also show how to repot orchids.”Gardening in Georgia” is coproduced by GPB and the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Each show is geared to Georgia soils, climate and growing conditions.The 2007 season is made possible through an underwriting gift from McCorkle Nurseries and support from the Metro Atlanta Landscape and Turf Association.

PacifiCorp Foote Creek project shows wind industry’s huge strides: Same power output, 80% fewer turbines

first_imgPacifiCorp Foote Creek project shows wind industry’s huge strides: Same power output, 80% fewer turbines FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Associated Press:Bigger, more efficient equipment will allow an electric utility to redevelop Wyoming’s first commercial wind farm so it produces the same amount of power with far fewer turbines, an example of the growing feasibility of renewable energy in the top U.S. coal-mining state.Portland, Oregon-based PacifiCorp plans to replace 68 wind turbines at the Foote Creek I wind farm with 13 turbines. The wind farm atop the barren and blustery ridge called Foote Creek Rim west of Cheyenne will continue to generate about 41 megawatts, or enough electricity to power nearly 20,000 homes.Solar power often gets attention for efficiency gains, but many U.S. utilities also are working to squeeze more megawatts out of wind, PacifiCorp spokesman Spencer Hall said. “Just imagine buying a new cellphone today versus in ’98,” Hall said, referring to when the wind farm’s first turbines were installed. “It’s becoming a thing where we can’t even get labor on some of them, there are so many projects going on.”PacifiCorp has 1.9 million customers in Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Washington state, Oregon and California and wants to get more electricity from wind power in the years ahead, while reducing what it generates from coal.Environmental groups are waiting for an October announcement by PacifiCorp outlining its future plans for coal-fired power. PacifiCorp has been weighing whether to shut down as many as nine coal-fired generating units at power plants in Colorado and Wyoming over the next several years.“All indications are showing it will include some early retirements on at least some of the units,” said Hall.More: Wyoming wind farm making same power with 80% fewer turbineslast_img read more
