The March 30 broadcast of The Hawk Report featured interviews with citizens involved in the Indiana County Farmers Market’s proposed move to a new centrally located park downtown and with a reporter who covered a well-attended campus presentation by a Holocaust survivor.

First: Indiana borough council prepares to vote on a proposal to move a midweek farmers market from its cramped space at Eighth and Church streets to the new IRMC Park at Seventh and Philadelphia streets. Proponents say the new park is perfect for community- and family-oriented events like theirs. But opposition is evident among council members and the proprietor of a North Seventh Street funeral home. Hawk Report Producer Kelsey Breunig reviews the proposal and previews the council’s April 8 vote.

Second, Hawk Report producer Dave Gershgorn interviews Sam Sullivan, a staff reporter for the IUP student newspaper The Penn, who elaborates on Monday’s well-attended guest lecture by a survivor of the Holocaust.

Listen to the March 30 edition of The Hawk Report.
