Indiana has more work to do than most states to comply with the new Clean Power Plan unveiled this week by the Obama administration; Interstate 69 construction is causing more road closures in the Bloomington area starting on Monday; A former top official at the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles is being investigated for possible ethical breaches; The Monroe County Board of Zoning Appeals ordered that 114 birds be removed from a residential backyard Wednesday; an event this Sunday at the Buskirk Chumley Theater brings together puzzles and sharks.
The new school year began on Monday for students in the Monroe County Community School Corporation. At Fairview Elementary, the Indiana Department of Education will continue this year to closely monitor performance. The state’s A through F grading system has assigned Fairview an F grade for the past three years. Principal Justin Hunter is beginning his second school year at Fairview. Hunter spoke earlier this week with the hosts of WFHB’s African American public affairs show, Bring It On, about recent events and changes to the school. We bring you a portion of his conversation with hosts William Hosea and Mattie White for today’s WFHB community report.
