All drivers, passengers, cyclists and pedestrians are entitled to claim for accident benefits if they are injured in a motor vehicle accident. This is true regardless of who is determined to be at-fault for the accident or whether the injured person has his or her own insurance.

Thereafter, you can continue to receive these benefits as long as you are continuously disabled from any occupation for which you are reasonably suited by education, training and experience.
You are entitled to this if you are not employed and suffer from a complete inability to carry on a normal life as a result of the injuries from the accident. Non-earner benefits are not payable for the first six months after the accident.
You are entitled to this if you are the primary unpaid caregiver of a person in need , plus an additional sum for each additional person in need of care.

Food Bank Of Northwest Indiana Mobile Market Helps Curb Hunger In Lake Porter Counties
‘People are able to keep their dignity, they’re staying in their car, they’re not feeling like they’re less than’
The Food Bank of Northwest Indiana Mobile Market is helping curb hunger by traveling to communities in Lake and Porter counties.
VALPARAISO, Ind. — Five days a week, volunteers and staff at the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana are making it easier for their neighbors to get access to free and nutritious food, all from the comfort of their car.
“People are able to keep their dignity, they’re staying in their car, they’re not feeling like they’re less than but two, you’re also mitigating the transportation barrier,” said Victor Garcia, president and CEO of the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana.
The food bank’s Mobile Market Program travels to specific communities in Lake and Porter counties facing food insecurity.
“Sometimes we have people who are living in poverty, sometimes we have folks who recently lost a job and are just trying to get by for a short period of time,” said Garcia. “Here at the food bank we don’t turn people away.”
And with the price of food skyrocketing, every little bit helps.
“It helps with the basics, and you have to worry about the majority.” said Tasha Gasper of Lake Station. “I’m a single mom of four kids, and then I got my mother, so it’s really hard right now.”
And that love is something the volunteers and staff make sure to share with a helping hand and caring face.
How Does A Drive
Guests remain in their vehicles and Food Bank staff or volunteers load food into trunks and truck beds. Walk-up service is also available. If walking-up, we recommend bringing a cart or bag to help carry the food. The low-contact, no-contact drive-thru style provides maximum safety for individuals receiving food, as well as for staff and volunteers conducting the distribution.

Temple Cte Department Reaches New Heights
Our Town Temple | June 14, 2022
The Temple High School Career & Technical Education Department is celebrating its continued impact on TISD students after posting some impressive results during the 2021-2022 school year.
The Temple High School CTE department released those numbers as part of the programs year-end celebration.
A total of 186 students combined to earn 243 industry based certifications during the 2021-2022 academic year. Those certifications covered 15 different disciplines.
The CTE department also qualified 40 students for state competitions and completed 244 service-based learning projects and events.
Both of those totals are more than double the number from the 2020-2021 school year. The increased number of students earning certifications is a particular point of pride for the department because of the direct impact it has on their ability to get hired.
When students earn industry recognized certifications, this shows employers they are ready to meet the technical challenges the workplace presents, said Denise Ayres, director of CTE for Temple schools.
It shows students have the knowledge and skill necessary to be value add to a team and it shows these students will need less on the job training than someone without this knowledge and skill, thus, they are ready to jump right into the work at hand, she said.

Horse Food Recalled After 45 Deaths Fda Says
A snack for horses is being recalled after 45 horses died from eating it, according to the FDA.
Manzanola Feeds is voluntarily recalling certain lots of Top of the Rockies Alfalfa Cubes because they may be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, a potentially fatal type of bacteria. It is toxic to both humans and animals.
Common symptoms of infection may include dizziness, blurred or double vision, trouble with vocalizing or swallowing, difficulty breathing, muscle weakness, abdominal distension and constipation. Animals experiencing these symptoms should receive immediate medical attention.
The recalled Top of the Rockies Alfalfa Cubes are approximately 1-inch cubes, packaged in a 50-pound bag, and are labeled with the following codes: 111222, 111322, 111422, 111522 and 111622.
The code can be found on the front of the bag, near the top of the bag. The code represents the month, day and year the cubes were manufactured.
The recalled product was distributed directly to the following states:
However, further distribution may be possible, so the FDA says is important to check if you have this product even if you live outside of these 10 states.
The FDA urges anyone with these alfalfa cubes to not feed them to horses or any other animals. Throw them away in a secure container and place them in a covered trash can or dumpster so that no other animals can access them.
If you think your horse has become ill after eating this food, call your veterinarian right away.
