Best of 2013 #9 – Muddying the Waters: New Interstate Brings New Contamination

Play

After decades of debate and protest, 2013 saw the first segments of Interstate 69 begin construction in Monroe and Greene counties. In 2012, a 67-mile stretch of the new road was finished in Southern Indiana, connecting Evansville to the area near the Crane Naval base. Then, by early this spring, landowners in the WFHB listening area began reporting trees were cleared on or near their properties to make way for section 4 of the interstate. It was just a few months after that, that problems began to surface. In July, residents who own property along the future path of I-69 began reporting their local waterways were being contaminated. Landowners produced photos of creeks filled with sediment as well as sinkholes filling with brown water.The erosion problems have continued since August, and in the past couple months some contractors have been forced to halt construction while they deal with the issue. Still, landowners say the contamination persists each time the area sees heavy rain.

Best of 2013 #10 – School Assembly: Indiana University on Strike

Play

The Occupy Movement and a string of student sit ins and protests during the 2012 election year led to a standing assembly of students staff and faculty working together to include their voice in conversations typically reserved for IU administrators and trustees. This year the group organized a two day strike coinciding with the trustees’ Bloomington meeting and continued to support each other as IU failed to meet diversity goals and cut custodial jobs on campus.
