Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Wednesday, March 30, 1988 PageS Police Dress Code Approved By Board Logansport policemen will be taking on a more formal look when they begin wearing ties next fall. The department's uniformed officers submitted a new dress regulation proposal that was approved today by the Logansport Board of Public Works and Safety. Assistant Chief Jim Jackson said the new dress policy will require officers to dress in a more uniform way. The policy includes guidelines for shoes, shirts, badges, coats, gloves and hats. Policemen will begin wearing summer shirts May 1. The board also approved a request from residents on Fountain Street to make the north side of the street located just west of College Hill a no parking zone. The board approved a second request from Woodlawn Center for the designation of a no parking area on the south side of Woodlawn Avenue during the center's client pick-up and delivery periods. Mayor John Davis said he had received word from contractor Merrill Louthain that the city's bid for curb and flat concrete escalation had increased by 20£ per lineal foot. Davis said the cost increase would still make Louthain the lowest bidder for the work and will now mean that curb work will cost $9 per lineal foot. The city shares the cost of the work with property owners. The board approved $302,240.75 in claims. Deputy Mayor Ken Smith said the city's gardening plots will probably be ready for gardeners next week. Attorney General Sues Club INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A defunct Starke County camping club and its agents have been sued for $13,000 in restitution and $9,000 in civil penalties, the attorney general's office announced. The office's consumer protection division filed suit in Marion ;Superior Court against Happy Parks Resort of Indiana in San Pierre, Attorney General Linley E. Pearson said Tuesday. The lawsuit alleges the camping club, now out of business, misled people who purchased club memberships in 1987. The suit alleges consumers were told they could cancel their contracts within three business days. Consumers also were told their membership would qualify them for an international club, the lawsuit says. Pearson said refunds haven't been delivered as promised and the club didn't have the affiliation it claimed with an international organization. Those alleged acts would violate the state's deceptive sales act, he said. Fayette Sherriff Center Of Controversy CONNERSVILLE, Ind. (AP) Prosecutor Ronald T. Urdal of Fayette County says he tried to convince Sheriff George Zimmerman to resign last fall to forestall a possible lawsuit by some members of the sheriff's department. Zimmerman refused, and this week a lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Indianapolis, charging the sheriff with misconduct, including ghost employment; under-reporting his income to the Internal Revenue Service; and sexual harassment. Zimmerman has denied any wrongdoing and said, "Those are pretty strong accusations, and they better have something to back them up."

Advocates for the poor say Indiana's program is fundamentally unfair. Since October 1987, Hoosiers in 24 targeted counties who want to receive food stamps have been required to participate in IMPACT — Indiana Manpower Placement and Comprehensive Training. The program assesses participants' job skills and then assigns them either to job training or job interviews. Critics say the program is essentially "workfare," which they say is unfair to low-income people. "IMPACT is punishment for being poor," said Joseph Mion Jr., public policy coordinator for the Indiana Task Force on Poor Relief. "These people get no wages, social security benefits, unemployment insurance, vacation time or union membership. "The state has spent close to $3 million on this program," Micon added. "That's an awful lot of money to support a philosophical belief based on incorrect facts — that low-income people are lazy and don't want to work, when the reality is they have just as strong a work ethic, but the jobs just aren't there." Many people who get food stamps can be exempt from the work requirements because of a variety of hardships. But eligible individuals who refuse to join the program can be suspended from the food stamp rolls for 60 days and eventually dropped. By helping food stamp recipients find jobs, officials said, the people eventually would go off public assistance, saving the state up to $13 million. The $6.9 miflion mandatory-participation program costs the state about $2.9 million.
