Amendments affecting billing and costs sent to the court Two proposed Bar rule amendments, one on billing and the other on costs, have passed the Board of Governors and will be forwarded to the Supreme Court.The board at its December meeting followed the recommendation of the Disciplinary Procedure Committee in approving the changes.The first would alter the comment to Rule 4-1.5 by suggesting that lawyers should discuss with clients, in some circumstances, alternatives to hourly or fixed-fee billing.In response to a question, Bar Counsel Tony Boggs noted that no obligation is created for lawyers by the change because it is in the comment, not the text, of the rule.The added language reads: “Although hourly billing or a fixed fee may be the most common basis for computing fees in an area of practice, these may not be the only bases for computing fees. A lawyer should, where appropriate, discuss alternative billing methods with the client.”The second approved amendment also affects Rule 4-1.5, but pertains to costs. It sets out guidelines that can be used to evaluate, in the event of a dispute, whether costs are reasonable and also includes this provision: “When the parties have a written contract in which the method is established for the charging costs, the costs charged thereunder shall be presumed reasonable.”The changes will go to the Supreme Court later this year as part of the Bar’s annual rule amendment petition.

The Cincinnati Bengals remain an enigma in pro football. On any given weekend they can play well enough to beat anybody in pro football, and the next weekend play as if they are still trying to learn the game. I suppose the funny part of this is that the entire NFL seems to have become a victim of this same malady. The only team in football this year that has avoided this fate has been the Arizona Cardinals. Even the loss of Carson Palmer to a knee injury has failed to slow the Cardinals down. Their fans are hoping their team wins out and plays the Super Bowl on their home field.Going back to the Bengals–they are still a favorite to win their division. However, their inability to win a game when they are in the national spotlight makes it hard for the average fan to get on their band wagon. I believe they have lost 4 of their last 5 games on national TV. No one has been able to come up with a solution to this problem. Hopefully, if they get all of their players back from the injured list, they will be able to play like they did for the first 3 games.When A.J. Green is available on offense and the Bengals core of starting linebackers are healthy, they are able to play with anybody. However, if just one of these is missing from the lineup, no one seems to be able to pick up the slack. For a team that has been in the league as long as they have, and having a head coach for as long as Marvin Lewis has been there, you would think they would have figured the system out by now.
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — New data released by the Indiana State Police indicates a decline in methamphetamine lab seizures in Southeast Indiana, according to State Rep. Randy Frye (R-Greensburg).Frye says several counties experienced a drop in meth lab seizures between 2015 and 2016, including Decatur County where meth lab busts decreased from 36 to 22.Audio Playerhttp://wrbiradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/FryeMethLabsAudio.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.During the 2016 session, Frye supported a law to combat Indiana’s growing number of meth labs.Frye said the law makes purchasing large amounts of pseudoephedrine, a common decongestant as well as a key ingredient used to manufacture meth, more difficult for meth cooks to obtain.The law also empowers local pharmacists to ensure law-abiding consumers maintain legitimate access to these cold medications.Recently, the Indiana State Police reported that statewide meth lab busts went down 35 percent in 2016.In addition, the number of children removed from meth lab environments went down nearly half from the 291 cases in 2015.

Statewide— On Monday, Governor Eric J. Holcomb announced Indiana businesses across the state are answering the call to support the global novel coronavirus (COVID-19) response effort. The state’s manufacturers are using its resources, supply chains, and employees to produce personal protection equipment (PPE) for health care providers, while business and community leaders have stepped up to source and donate additional materials.The Indiana Economic Development Corporation, which has been working with business leaders across the state to help meet the increased demand for PPE, has secured commitments for more than 2.6 million pieces of PPE. Of these, more than 1.9 million items are being made by 15 Indiana manufacturers across a diverse range of specialties, from automotive to RVs to caskets and consumer products, while more than 440,000 are being donated by Hoosier businesses and organizations. “It’s incredible to see Indiana companies shifting gears to help those who need it most right now, our health care providers on the frontline,” Gov. Holcomb said. “We couldn’t be more grateful for these companies stepping up and contributing in every way they can. They are true examples of how great the Hoosier spirit is.” The purchased and donated products are being delivered to the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) for distribution to Indiana’s hospitals, first responders, long-term care facilities and health care providers treating COVID-19 patients. To date, the state has received and distributed more than 375,000 items of PPE and expects to receive more than 150,000 items this week with deliveries daily. In Madison, two businesses have shifted production to help deliver these critical supplies:Royer Corporation, a leading manufacturer of custom injection molded foodservice equipment, custom swizzle sticks, beverage stirrers, picks and a variety of branded promotional products, is utilizing its resources to create face shields for medical workers. The Madison-based, family-owned company plans to produce 75,000 weekly pieces, sending 20,000 to support the state’s efforts so far. Royer has partnered with Clifty Engineering, also based in Madison, to fabricate and build an additional die cutting machine, which will double its output of face shields. SuperATV, a provider of aftermarket All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV) and Utility Task Vehicles (UTV) parts and accessories, has shifted production to make lightweight full-face shields, intubation shields and retail employee protective barriers, with plans to produce face shields for the state’s front-line workers.
“There are no perfect games for everyone but I think we just have to use it as an example towards the future. It was a sign of our character, even if it was not our day. We will reflect on it on Tuesday and move forward. “We have a wonderful opportunity to continue in the Europa League and then we will focus back again on Fulham. The more you get to the end of the season the more inspiring it can be. Our rewards can be with the Europa League trophy and Champions League qualification – that is our main ambition.” Spurs are among the favourites for the Europa League after a 3-0 last-16 first-leg defeat of Inter Milan. Villas-Boas and his side travel to Milan this week for the return contest without the suspended Gareth Bale, but are still expected to be in Friday’s quarter-final draw. Midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson hopes the San Siro contest will mark the start of another impressive sequence of results after an eight-match unbeaten run in all competitions also came to an end. “It was disappointing but all we can do now is focus on the next game at Inter and make sure we go through,” Sigurdsson said on www.tottenhamhotspur.com. “We’ve been on an unbelievable run and sometimes things like this happen. “We have to make sure we stay together, regroup and get ready for the next game. Hopefully we can go on another run between now and the end of the season.” Andre Villas-Boas has called for his Tottenham side to swiftly move on from the end of their 12-match unbeaten run and refocus on winning the Europa League as well as clinching Champions League qualification. The 3-2 loss at Liverpool on Sunday halted Spurs’ streak in the Barclays Premier League and means fourth-placed Chelsea are two points behind Villas-Boas’ team with a game in hand. Misjudgements from Kyle Walker and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris contributed to Stewart Downing’s equaliser before Steven Gerrard converted the decisive penalty following a foul on Luis Suarez. “We did a couple of mistakes which we don’t normally do,” Villas-Boas said.
