June also was the fourth-wettest of any month on record since 1895. The rainfall surpassed the previous June record of 8.13 inches set in 1958. The climate office, based at Purdue University, said nearly all parts of Indiana received above-normal rainfall. Normal rainfall ranges from 4.1 inches to 4.3 inches across the state.The heaviest rain totals generally were in a west-to-east band stretching from Newton to Adams counties across northern Indiana. A rainfall monitoring station in Rensselaer in Jasper County had the most rain – 18.06 inches. Two locations in Newton County had more than 17 inches.During the entire month there were only four days when it did not rain somewhere in Indiana. On seven days, some areas had more than 4 inches.The rain has exacted a heavy toll on crops planted in the spring, flooding fields in many areas of the state – especially in the north – and keeping the young corn and soybean plants under water for days on end. Purdue Extension agricultural economist Chris Hurt said this week the value of the crops already could have declined by $475 million because of the damage.Not all areas of Indiana received heavy rainfall in the same weeks:* June 1-7 was generally dry across most of the state.* June 8-16: When high pressure blocked storms from moving normally across southeast states, storm systems passed through a narrow corridor in northern Indiana to reach the Atlantic Coast, funneling large rain amounts to that part of the state.* June 19-20: The remnants of Tropical Storm Bill carried heavy rain across the southern half of Indiana, which was largely missed earlier in the month.* June 22-30: A fast jet stream across the northern tier of the United States set the stage for more wet, stormy weather across all of Indiana as fronts stalled here.Only three other months are on record as wetter in Indiana: January 1950, with 10.11 inches; April 2011, with 9.61 inches; and January 1937, with 9.23 inches.The climate office said Indiana’s July forecast calls for more of the same: above-normal precipitation and cool temperatures. It said the cooler temperatures should help limit the extreme downpours as the heaviest rainfall tends to occur in the warm, muggy air mass ahead of cold fronts.last_img read more

Limerick meeting to force action on housing crisis

The housing waiting list is getting longer. And less social houses are being built, it has been claimed.A meeting will take place in Pery’s Hotel this Thursday, October 29, at 8pm to address the housing crisis and these specific issues.A teenage boy whose family was recently homeless while he was doing his Leaving Cert will speak openly about his own experiences. Jackie Bonfield of Mid West Simon Community and the Anti Austerity Alliance’s general election candidate for Limerick City, Cllr Cian Prendiville, will also speak at this free event.Cllr Prendiville feels those suffering the most from the housing crisis are being ignored. However, he believes, the water charges movement is proof that by standing together, the Government can be forced to take notice.“Rents in Limerick are going through the roof, as the housing waiting list gets longer and longer. Despite a lot of hot air, the Government still refuses to take real action on housing. They have built less social houses than any government for 45 years,” said Cllr Prendiville.“The Government has allowed the market to hold back the supply of homes and push up the prices. While over 5,000 families are on the housing list in Limerick, so far this year only 10 social houses have been built,” he added.This, the City North representative maintains, has given landlords a golden opportunity to drive up rents, while the Government refuse to implement rent controls.“With one quarter of the TDs in the Dail landlords themselves, is it any wonder?” he asked.According to Cllr Prendiville, Thursday night’s meeting is hoped to be the launch of a campaign to demand immediate action on the housing and rent crisis.“The AAA have helped coordinate protests and occupations of vacant and NAMA properties, to demand real action. We want to build a similar campaign here in Limerick to demand rent controls, and the right to a home for all,” he concluded.

Investigate first

first_imgWoodland Hills And we pay Organizers of the May 1 march must be thinking, “We love it when a plan comes together.” First, organize a march and pepper the crowd with people bent on inciting the police with rocks, bottles, verbal abuse and lack of respect. Then, make sure you have plenty of cameras to document an out-of-context portrayal that supports your slanted perspective of the event. Now you’re ready to sue and encourage others to do the same. The city will, of course, apologize and settle for a couple million because that would be the politically correct thing to do. God forbid we hurt the feelings of people who are here illegally and their supporters. And once again the L.A. taxpayer loses. So what’s new? – Robert West Northridge How convenient Re “LAPD demote a top cop” (May 8): There were obviously abundant videotapes of the incidents, and I have not seen that those tapes were used to arrest the rock throwers. There seems to be a not-so-hidden agenda. Also, isn’t it convenient that our mayor was out of the country when this previously known demonstration was going to happen? Maybe he didn’t want to face the problem upfront. – Richard Cord West Hills What’s that say? It seems like at least 90 percent of the letters to the opinion page have been in support of the Los Angeles Police Department over the situation on May 1. That should tell the mayor, police chief and every other critic something. Ardyne Blackstone Myrna Bixler Burbank Affordable housing Many believe that owners of rent-controlled apartments are looking for any excuse to evict their tenants paying submarket rents. I am an owner of low-income property. Tenants were families paying $645 for 800-square-foot apartments. City departments overseeing landlords often fail to follow their own rules. My property was inspected under the Systematic Code Enforcement Program without notice. Records showed the notice was sent to the wrong address. When I requested extra time to comply, SCEP people inspected another property and demanded both be completed at the same time. Nevertheless, I had to pay hundreds of dollars in extra fees and fines. – Robert Jacobsohn West Hills Republican debate Re “Reagan wannabes” (May 4): Initially when I turned on the Republican debate and saw that lineup of perfectly coiffed gray-haired men in dark suits, I thought that I had stumbled onto one of the ever-present WaMu bankers’ commercials. However, when the camera panned back and I saw that huge airliner, and when I heard how the candidates wanted to make a woman’s right to choose, medical science, privacy rights, gay rights, evolution and those governments with whom we disagree (especially those in countries with oil) disappear, I assumed that I was going to see another David Copperfield special. Unfortunately, I was wrong. – Marshall Barth Encino Debate formats Re “Reagan wannabes” (May 4): Democrat candidates refused to allow Fox News to have anything to do with their debate production because they all said they could not expect fairness and professionalism from such a biased news organization. Republican candidates accepted MSNBC’s Chris Matthews as their moderator and got just about what they could expect – easy on substance and heavy on evolution/religion/abortion, with a few focus-group grenades thrown in. – James Gates Sunland Viewership drop Re “Viewership a sob story for networks” (May 9): At last, the realization by networks that the garbage they are putting out under the guise of entertainment is being rejected by the public: situation comedies that have declined to moronic plots and idiotic lines delivered by actors who appear to want to be somewhere else but need the money; talent shows in which the judges spew forth their derogatory venom of the contestants’ efforts. Add to the list the shows in which people come on, and their personal lives – and in some cases their bodies – are laid bare. Is public degradation a new form of entertainment? And then there are the commercials. I get sick and tired (no pun intended) of hearing “Ask your doctor if (insert product name here) is right for you.” – Robert West Palmdale Fonda and Paris Re “No more Fonda” (Your Opinions, May 8): I couldn’t agree more with Paul Vaughn about Jane Fonda. I don’t want to see her face anywhere or hear anything about her. I believe she is a traitor and does not deserve any press coverage of any kind. I am also sick and tired of hearing about Paris Hilton. I hope that she serves her jail time and learns something from it. – Pat Meiner Canoga Park Firefighters Let the pundits around the water coolers question the culture and professionalism of Los Angeles’ firefighters – until a day like Tuesday happens. The women and men of the Los Angeles Fire Department were met on Tuesday afternoon with scorching weather, blistering winds, terrain that would make an avid hiker cringe and a raging brush fire in the nation’s largest municipal park. Willingly and without question, paramedics and firefighters braved the elements and beat back catastrophe in Griffith Park. Question the motives of the rare employee who acts outside of the professional scope. We will, too. Question the personal biases of the infinitesimal minority that bring unwanted behavior into the work environment. We will, too. But remember on days like Tuesday, when L.A. burns and L.A.’s firefighters shine, that the proud firefighters of Los Angeles serve with distinction and bravery. – Steve Tufts, president United Firefighters of Los Angeles City Truly healed soul Re “Do the right thing: Pick up the pieces” (Their Opinions, May 3): Thomas Sowell’s observation that the agenda of the political left is really all about “self-congratulation” is very insightful. Self-congratulation, like narcissism, is a weak man’s attempt to soothe his wounded soul. It explains why some are so driven to seek the acclaim and adoration of the lesser masses – for example, as movie stars, politicians and university professors. The soul is truly healed by rejecting immorality and self-indulgence in favor of doing good to all others and respecting them as equals at a very personal (rather than showy) level. The need for self-congratulation and public affirmation of superiority are then replaced by a more fulfilling and healthy sense of self-esteem. – Peter Marlow Granada Hills160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Re “LAPD demotes a top cop” (May 8): The mayor said Chief Bratton acted decisively to send a message to the city and to all Los Angeles Police Department officers. Perhaps it’s time we send a message to the mayor. He was elected to be mayor of all the people of Los Angeles. That includes all ethnic groups, and that includes the police officers. He acts like his only responsibility is to “la raza.” Most people at the rally acted responsibly. However, video shows the few who blatantly disobeyed, became violent and purposely egged on the police. Do your investigation, but know that the citizens of Los Angeles want to be protected from those who flout our laws and endanger us all. And we will support our police for the good work they do every day of the year. – Betty Breneman last_img read more
