NEWS AND TRIBUNE BRIEFS — For Jan. 19-20

SOUTHERN INDIANA

MLK holiday means no paper Monday

In observance of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday Monday, Jan. 20, the News and Tribune will not publish a print edition. Our offices in Jeffersonville and New Albany will be open Monday.

Print production will resume Tuesday. Visit newsandtribune.com for news updates.

Public forum on homeless set

The Jeffersonville-Clarksville Homelessness Task Force has scheduled its first public forum at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 22, in the council chambers at Jeffersonville City Hall, 500 Quartermaster Court.

The purpose of the forum is to discuss the issue of homelessness in the area and the public is invited to attend, according to a press release.

The task force was formed following the sweep of a homeless camp near exit 0 in late November. People living in the camp complained personal belongs were taken and they were not notified of the sweep. Jeffersonville suspended any additional sweeps to allow the task force to examine the policy.

Talk to a lawyer for free

The Indiana State Bar Association and Southern Indiana Pro Bono Referrals will sponsor “Talk to a Lawyer Today” 10 a.m. to noon Jan. 21 as an annual tribute to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr..

This is a telephone conference only. Locally, dial 812-949-2292. No appointment is necessary.
