Bikers pedal through Central Indiana to raise funds for Habitat

Bicycles were scattered throughout the lower floor, where bikers ate, socialized and slept after completing the 70 mile-mile leg that began in Crawfordsville.

The riders started in Lafayette, stopped in Crawfordsville Sunday night and made their way to Terre Haute Monday; the final destination is Indianapolis. The bikers come from all over the state, although many are Purdue University students or retirees; one couple came from Washington, D.C.

Cover Indiana is an annual weeklong bicycle tour through central Indiana. It was created in 2004 by Habitat for Humanity of Indiana to raise money and awareness for the mission of Habitat for Humanity in the state, as well as establish community among the many Habitat affiliates in Indiana.

It’s the seventh Cover Indiana bike tour for Jason Roehl, co-leader of this year’s event. 

“I enjoy riding bikes and it’s for a good cause,” Roehl said after he had arrived at the downtown Terre Haute church. “I like seeing [Habitat for Humanity] families get a hand up instead of a handout.

Abortion Activists Defend Taxpayer-Funded AmeriCorps Breaking Law to Push Abortions

Forcing taxpayers to fund abortions is high on abortion activists’ priority list. NARAL, Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups have been focusing their efforts on overturning the Hyde Amendment, which has long protected Americans from funding most abortions. Upheld by the Supreme Court, the Hyde Amendment is now a target of abortion advocates who have moved from pro-choice to pro-abortion — forcing Americans not only to accept unlimited abortions before birth but also to pay for them. Hillary Clinton promised to overturn Hyde and force taxpayers to fund abortions if she is elected president.

However, polls consistently show that a majority of Americans, even those who identify as pro-choice, oppose forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions. A 2014 CNN poll found 56 percent opposed using public funds for abortions, while 39 percent were in favor.

AmeriCorps leaders said they ended the abortion program quickly when they discovered the violation, but many pro-lifers have concerns beyond just AmeriCorps. U.S. Congressman Joe Pitts, R-Pennsylvania, said he was troubled when he learned that taxpayer-funded community health centers also are promoting abortions.

Applying for Americorp. Any tips?

I'm applying for Americorp right now. I have moderate but consistent community service experience. I volunteered at camps, art museums, and community gardens throughout high school.


If you are as enthusiastic as you sound, I don't know how you would not be accepted.

I know many many people who have volunteered through Americorps just being a high school student, high school graduate or in college.
