Community members, food pantries and the Bloomington mayor are pressuring the Monroe County Community School Corporation to change its lunch policy. July 1st will see more than 250 new laws take effect in Indiana. The Indianapolis International Airport is still working to obtain its first transatlantic flight. Independence Day Fireworks displays begin this weekend in the Monroe County area.

FEATURE
This afternoon a group of about a dozen people were sitting or lying down on the sidewalk on East Kirkwood Avenue, alongside shopping carts full of belongings and various other items. The group congregated in front of the site where construction crews are building a new boutique hotel, The Graduate. At least some members of the group have been regular patrons of Peoples Park, just a few blocks away, but an increased police presence at the park has moved them down the street. Other regular Park patrons, many of whom are experiencing homelessness, have reportedly begun spending more time in Seminary Square park, several blocks to the south. In today’s WFHB community report, we hear from a member of a task force that recommended the new police patrols downtown. Forrest Gilmore has expressed concern about the new patrols, but some optimism about other work done by the task force. Gilmore spoke with WFHB News Director Joe Crawford.
