I’m Homeless: Ron Schuler

Play

For every mat on the floor of the Interfaith Winter Shelter there is a story of loss, and a story of hope. This week we are speaking with experts on homelessness in Bloomington, those who have studied the causes and effects of homelessness through firsthand experience. All week we bring you first hand accounts from residents of the Interfaith Wintershelter, and those working on an alternate system once the shelter closes April 1st.

Today on “I’m Homeless” we hear from Ron Schuler. Ron uses the Interfaith Winter Shelter every night and has a list of health problems the inhibit him from finding employment. As bad as his situation is, Ron doesn’t want to leave town because his mother lives in a care facility in the area, so he still spends his days applying for jobs, and helping the summer shelter group seek a permanent solution for emergency shelter in Bloomington.

Interchange – Democratic Primary Candidates for Monroe County Clerk

Play

Hosts Trish Kerle and Doug Storm are joined in the studio by Linda Robbins and Ashley Cranor to discuss their reasons for wanting to be elected to the Office of the Clerk of Monroe County.

Linda Robbins is the incumbent for this position, becoming Monroe County Clerk in January of 2011.  And Ashley Cranor, the primary challenger, is currently Grants Administrator for the Monroe County
Commissioners Office.

For this program we discover just what the County Clerk does; we find out the candidates’ qualifications and get a bit of their biographies; and we find out what they have in mind for this term
should they be elected to the position. Along the way we ask some questions about current programs and policies in order to get a sense of the effectiveness of the office administration.

Key topics are the contentious election result for the last two cycles and the Indiana Voter ID law and how politics becomes policy.

All week we bring you first hand accounts from residents of the Interfaith Wintershelter, and those working on an alternate system once the shelter closes April 1st.

We begin our series with Glen Carter who attends weekly meetings at the Monroe County Public Library in a group effort to secure a shelter for those who need a place to stay April through November when the Interfaith Winter Shelter is not in operation.  Carter’s addiction led him to homelessness, and his recovery has led him to advocacy.

Books Unbound – Lady Chatterley’s Lover, Part 18

Play

Born in 1885, David Herbert Lawrence was an English novelist, poet, playwright, essayist, and painter. His collective works are classified as a reflection of the dehumanizing effects of modernity and industrialization. His marriage in 1914 to Frieda Weekly, a woman who left her husband and three children for Lawrence, provided inspiration and emotional support for his literary career. Lawrence died in 1930, reaching his peak of fame posthumously.

Banned by U.S. Customs (1929). Banned in Ireland (1932), Poland (1932), Australia (1959), Japan (1959), India (1959). Banned in Canada (1960) until 1962. Dissemination of Lawrence’s novel has been stopped in China (1987) because the book “will corrupt the minds of young people and is also against the Chinese tradition.” Lady Chatterley’s Lover was the object of numerous obscenity trials in both the UK and the United States up into the 1960s.

Lady Chatterley’s Lover, first published privately in 1928, was not published openly in Britain until 1960. It tells the story of the love affair between Constance (Lady Chatterley) and her husband Clifford’s gamekeeper, Oliver Mellors, while exploring the nature of relationships between men and women. Besides the evident sexual content of the book, “Chatterley” spurred controversy for its discussion of the British social class system and social conflict. Penguin, the publisher of the unexpurgated text in 1960, was unsuccessfully tried for violation of the 1959 Obscene Publications Act. The prosecutor was ridiculed for asking, “Is this the kind of book you would wish your wife or servants to read?”
