According to information released by the Department of Health and Human Services this afternoon, only 701 Hoosiers successfully selected insurance plans through the flawed Healthcare.gov website from October 1 through November 2. While the administration touts this as an enrollment number, they also admit they included both individuals who completed the purchase and those who have put a plan into their online shopping cart, but have not decided to enroll.

The Salem Rotary Club is raising funds to assist with disaster relief in the Philippines as a result of Super Typhoon Haiyan. The storm destroyed entire coastal towns with record winds and tsunami like waves as much as 16 feet in height. The city of Tacloban was nearly destroyed. Over a half a million people are estimated to have lost their homes.
WSLM is kicking off its 4th annual IU – Purdue Food Challenge to benefit the Washington County Food Bank.
To promote the food bank as well as the rivalry between Hoosier and Boilermaker fans, WSLM created this event to not only raise awareness and food for the local charity, but pits local fans against each other to see which team can collect the most food.
