. . . and YOU NEED TO PAY ATTENTION! You have, or soon will, receive the Census 2010 form. The Census represents POWER, MONEY, and INTELLIGENCE, and is the most confidential form you will probably ever fill out.
POWER - The Census is the basis of how many representatives each state sends to Congress. Indiana lost one representative after the 2000 census by a margin that could easily be reflected in the undercount. The Midwest is projected to loose, all things remaining equal, representation to the western and southern states.
MONEY – The federal government distributes more than $400 billion annually to state, local and tribal governments based on formulas subject to census data. Indiana redistributes certain taxes, such as gasoline taxes, based in part on formulas that include population data. The more accurate the count, the better chance that each town, city and county will receive their fair share.
INTELLIGENCE – Your 10-Question Census 2010 form will ask you for a information such as the age, sex, and race of everyone living at that address. The aggregate (not personal) information is used by local agencies to determine needed services; by your local government to project growth, and by businesses to determine the feasibility of establishing or expanding a business.
CONFIDENTIALITY – Title 13 of the U.S. Code protects the confidentiality of all your information. The penalty for unlawful disclosure is a fine of up to $250,000 or imprisonment of up to 5 years, or both.

In March 2010, more than 130 million addresses across the nation will receive a census questionnaire. One of the shortest census forms in history, the 2010 Census questionnaire asks 10 questions and takes about 10 minutes to complete. Completing your census questionnaire is easy, important and safe, and your participation is essential to ensuring a brighter tomorrow for our community.
Required once every 10 years by the U.S. Constitution, the census will count every person living in the United States, both citizens and noncitizens. Census data are used to reapportion the U.S. House of Representatives, re-district each state and determine the distribution of the Electoral College. Census data also directly affect how more than $400 billion per year in federal funding is distributed to state, local and tribal governments. Most importantly, census data is critical in determining locations for new hospitals, improving schools, building new roads, expanding public transportation options and creating new maps for emergency responders.

On Sunday Hillary Clinton made a pit stop right here in our neighborhood! She gave a full speech and visited with supporters at the General Store this last Sunday. This is the first time since 1988 that Indiana’s primary will make a difference in a presidential nomination. Its very exciting to see the candidates right here in our community trying to appeal to us, no matter which candidate you support.
