The Carmel City Council voted last night to add protections for gender identity and sexual orientation
to the city’s non-discrimination ordinance; Actor Jessie Eisenberg has pledged to match up to
$100,000 in donations to support Bloomington’s Middle Way House; Hoosier Energy is set to begin
construction next fall on a $12 million dollar facility that will produce electric power from methane gas; Ellettsville is moving to annex a thirty-nine acre piece of land, part of which is expected to be the future location of Monroe County’s first solar farm.
The Wounded Galaxies Festival begins in Bloomington on Thursday. The four-day festival includes film
screenings, music performances and other events that emphasize what organizers call “the
subversive potentials of montage, remixes, appropriations, cutups and rearrangements of all kinds”.
Participants include the feminist, fictionalist, and DIY filmmaker Chris Kraus, as well as
bassist, composer and improviser James Ilgenfritz, who will be performing at the first event Thursday
at the Bishop. The group behind the festival is known as The Burroughs Century. WFHB News
Director Joe Crawford spoke with two members of that organization and we bring you that
conversation for today’s WFHB community report.
