Freedom Award Nomination

The city of Valparaiso was nominated to receive the 2012 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award. Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense agency, announced 78 Indiana Guard and Reserve members nominated their employers for the award.  The agency received 3,236 nominations nationwide. The Freedom Award is the Department of Defense’s highest recognition for employers supporting members of the guard and reserve. Up to 15 recipients will be announced this summer and honored in Washington, D.C. on September 20 at the 17th annual Freedom Award Ceremony. Guard and reserve members, or family members acting on their behalf, nominated their civilian employers for the Freedom Award during the 12-week nomination season. Guard and reserve members, who stand ready to serve whenever our Nation needs them, often put their civilian lives on hold when they answer the call to duty. Supportive employers provide a tremendous amount of stability and peace of mind to these Citizen Warriors and their families, enabling them to continue their dedicated service to our country. “Guardsmen and Reservists continue to receive outstanding support from their employers,” said ESGR National Chair James G. Rebholz. “America’s employers have not wavered in their commitment to these Citizen Warriors.” Last year’s recipients were nominated for superior acts of support including driving a deployed employee’s children to school, replacing a military employee’s broken family refrigerator while he was serving abroad, and working overtime to cover a service member’s shifts so he could take part in military training. A list of nominations from all 50 states, U.S. territories and the District of Columbia are available at www.FreedomAward.mil. Semifinalists for the 2012 Freedom Award will be announced later next month. The Freedom Award was instituted in 1996 under the auspices of ESGR to recognize exceptional support from the employer community. In the years since, 160 employers have been honored with the award. Established 40 years ago, ESGR develops and maintain employer support for guard and reserve service. For more information, visit . 


New Requirements for Recipients

Unemployed Hoosiers who are finishing their first 26 weeks of regular state unemployment insurance and moving to federally funded extended benefits will now be required to go to WorkOne for an in-person review of their work search records. The new in-person review is part of the federal law Congress passed in February reauthorizing the federally funded extended benefits through the end of the year. Reviews will also be required for those transitioning from the first round of federal benefits to the second if they have not previously participated. Those who have already completed the review will not have to go again. Anyone who fails to comply risks losing their unemployment insurance benefits. “While the job search requirement is not new to Hoosiers, the in-person visit offers the opportunity to get one-on-one personal attention from our professional re-employment staff,” said Mark W. Everson, commissioner of the department of workforce development. “Our staff will be able to provide insight on how to improve job search techniques and introduce clients to all of the services WorkOne offers.” All unemployment insurance recipients must report three places they looked for work each week, but only those who receive a notice are required to go to WorkOne. In April, Hoosiers will begin receiving notices in the mail. Unemployment insurance recipients should make sure their address is up-to-date in Uplink, Indiana’s online unemployment insurance filing system, to ensure they get the notice.

Vale Park Road Cleanup Day

The City of Valparaiso and Valparaiso Parks Department invite residents to volunteer for the annual Vale Park Road Cleanup Day on Apr. 25, 9 to 11 a.m. This will be the second year for the collaborative project which involves picking up litter and ridding the area of invasive plant species. “Last year city employees and volunteers packed an entire dumpster full of invasive plants and sorted trash and recycling,” said Christine Hisick, Valparaiso’s community and staff specialist, who is co-organizing the event. “It’s important work as we can’t allow trash or invasive plants to choke out the area’s natural beauty.  If we sit back and allow this, in time our beautiful nature preserve will be gone.” no prescription- buy online without prescription. discounts up to 90  The city welcomes groups and individuals to join in the project.
