Vermont has had the second highest success in the nation in creating new jobs with federal stimulus funds. It also ranks 12th in stimulus-related funding per capita. Meanwhile, in a new analysis conducted by Onvia, the leader in gBusiness solutions and the creator of Recovery.org, reveals that the “Recovery Summer” being promoted by the White House is poised to usher in a wave of new jobs in the second half of this year.For a complete look at the heat map visit:http://promotions.onvia.com/documents/map_arra_private_sector_jobs_impac(link is external)…To date, only one-third of the Recovery Act’s $275 billion that is allocated for projects to create private sector jobs on Main Street has been awarded. The remaining $218 billion represents a substantial amount of new projects that are about to get under way across the U.S.Top line findings:714,589 private sector jobs have been supported nationwide by Recovery Act project spending since its passage. These do not include public sector jobs created by stimulus grants to states and those paid by the government. Recovery Act project spending in 2010 is expected to generate a 27 percent increase in this figure by the end of 2010.$57.5 billion has been awarded to private sector contractors to fulfill Recovery Act projects, just one-third of the $275 billion allocated for private sector projects.Arkansas, North Carolina, Colorado, Maryland and Pennsylvania are the top five states for ARRA project per capita spending-to-date. Wisconsin, Illinois, Tennessee, Nevada and Utah are the bottom five states.North Carolina, Vermont, Illinois, and Nevada are projected to be the top five states for private sector job creation resulting from ARRA project contract awards in the remainder of 2010. Maryland, Wyoming, Alabama, Alaska and Oregon are projected to be the bottom five states.These findings were derived from Onvia’s data through August 11, 2010 – approximately 18 months since the stimulus money began flowing into the states.

RIPLEY COUNTY, Ind. — Members of law enforcement have worked continuously since late Friday after the police action shooting near Holton.According to Ripley County Prosecuting Attorney, Ric Hertel, the initial call came as a result of a domestic altercation that had taken place at the residence.Multiple law enforcement agencies responded to the residence which led to the homeowner, Timothy Bowman, firing at the officers.Bowman was struck by return fire from law enforcement and then remained in his home until later that night when he ultimately surrendered to the Indiana State Police Emergency Response Team.Two search warrants were authorized that night by Judge Sharp to search for and seize any evidence of a crime including firearms and ammunition along with Bowman.Those were served that night into the next day.Hertel noted that he will meet with detectives from the Indiana State Police as their investigation continues to determine appropriate charges.That decision may come as early as this week.
