St. Leon, In. — Duke Energy has selected six Indiana locations to participate in the company’s 2018 Site Readiness Program, including one in Franklin County. Proposed developments are set to be released later this year.The locations include:An 80-acre site along State Road 1 near the Interstate 74 interchange at St. Leon (Franklin County)A 66-acre site near Creek Way and 106th Street in Zionsville (Boone County)A 175-acre site in the River Ridge Commerce Center in Jeffersonville (Clark County)A 200-acre site at the Indianapolis Metropolitan Airport in Fishers (Hamilton County)A 143-acre site along East County Road 400 South near the interchange of State Road 3 and Interstate 70 (Henry County)A 500-acre site inside the Vermillion Rise Mega Park (Vermillion County)The Site Readiness Program identifies, evaluates and improves sites in the company’s service territory for potential industrial development.“Duke Energy is honored to select these communities for participation in the 2018 Site Readiness Program,” said Erin Schneider, director of economic development for Duke Energy Indiana. “We are eager to contribute resources to help promote economic development, jobs and quality of life for these regions.”A national site consulting firm will evaluate five of the six sites, while Banning Engineering will produce conceptual drawings and site plans.The Franklin County site will participate in a first-time Site Readiness Light Program, which includes the same treatment as the other five sites, but without the evaluation from McCallum Sweeney Consulting. This will then qualify the site to participate in the full Site Readiness Program as early as next year.Duke Energy will present its findings for each site – including a detailed report and conceptual drawings – to city and county officials when the studies are completed later this year. Economic development organizations in each location will also receive a check for $10,000 from Duke Energy to help implement the recommendations.After each site’s state of readiness has advanced, Duke Energy’s business development team will strategically market those sites nationwide to companies looking to expand or relocate their operations.Ideal properties for Duke Energy’s Site Readiness Program are typically 40 acres or larger, served by the utility, or a vacant industrial building of at least 20,000 square feet identified to support renewed industrial growth and sustainable development in a community.Duke Energy Indiana’s overall economic development program has been consistently named by Site Selection magazine as one of the nation’s “Top 10 Utility Economic Development Programs.” Since 2008, the company has participated in the creation of nearly 20,000 jobs with a total capital investment of approximately $4.5 billion.For more information about economic development efforts by Duke Energy click here.
Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college LATEST STORIES Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal It’s a new, yet familiar role for Love, who was Minnesota’s franchise player before he was traded to Cleveland and joined forces with James and Kyrie Irving. Four years ago, Love stood side by side with James and Irving on media day as the Cavs’ “Big Three” were introduced to the world before embarking on a journey that led to a title in 2016.That run seemed more of a distant memory on Monday as Love smiled and posed next to Lue and rookie guard Collin Sexton. And perhaps as a nod to his former teammate, Love wore a pair of James’ signature sneakers.He certainly won’t try to fill his shoes.Love, like all the Cavs, will have to adjust his game now that James isn’t around. But that doesn’t mean Love will revert to being the bruising big man he was with the Timberwolves.“I’m 30 now, so I don’t know if he’s still there,” Love said when asked if he could play like the younger version of himself. “Will there be nights when my stats are gaudy? It’s very, very likely. This will be a new chapter for all of us, and I think we’ve very excited.”Kyle Korver feels refreshed. Following a personally challenging season, which included his younger brother’s death, the 37-year-old walked out of Quicken Loans Arena following the Game 4 loss to Golden State in the Finals unsure of his future.“I was done,” Korver said. “I took a good chunk of time and got away from the game and evaluated a lot of things and tried to decide if I still had the desire to play. Talked things through with my wife and my family, looked at my kids. After doing all that I felt like I wanted to come back, I still wanted to play. I still love the game. I’m excited to be back.”While James is gone, reminders of him hang inside Cleveland Clinic Courts, where one wall is lined with Central Division and Eastern Conference championship banners.There’s also one to commemorate the ’16 title, which ended the city’s 52-year championship drought.It might be some time before the Cavs contend for another, but while he may have lost the best player he’ll ever coach, Lue isn’t convinced there’s a better team in the East. “No tanking,” he said. “Start from what we have and build from that. Not a rebuild at all. It’s a challenge for all of us, something different with LeBron gone but we’re up for the challenge.”The Cavs likely won’t regress to where they did when James bolted for Miami in 2010, but it could be a long time before they’re competing for a championship.“When you have the best player in the world who has dominated this game for the last 12 or 13 years in LeBron, it’s always tough to lose a player like that,” Lue said. “But moving forward, talking to (owner) Dan (Gilbert) and how he sees us building and approaching this season of being a playoff team.“That’s our goal and that’s what we want to do. We want to win and continue to get better, and develop our younger players while winning games.”That’s easier said than done, but Cleveland still has some talent led by All-Star forward Kevin Love, who signed a four-year, $120 million contract extension this summer and is now the Cavs’ best player and No. 1 offensive option.ADVERTISEMENT Spurs looking forward to new faces, new season after turmoil View comments “We haven’t lost yet, have we?” he saidSports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown LeBron James left and it all went with him.“I’m still here,” coach Tyronn Lue said, laughing.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissThe Cavs began life without James in earnest on Monday, taking their first steps since the superstar signed with the Los Angeles Lakers this summer and promptly ended the greatest run in franchise history.Without James, Cleveland has tumbled from an elite team and title contender to one many believe isn’t good enough to make the playoffs.
