Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a potentially debilitating condition, most cases of which are unexplained.  A recent piece of research reported on by MedicalNewsToday has proposed that people under the age of 45 with type 2 diabetes who are being treated with anti-hyperglycemic medications may be less likely to develop MS.  The same study found that those who start treatment with that medication over the age of 45 may be more at risk of developing MS.

Thankful public safety people  – Last week was a busy one for Muncie Fire Department.  Smoke filled a building at Ball State University, a possible basement fire, and three residential structure fires all at the same time.  The MFD used social media to thank Delaware County E911 dispatch, Yorktown Fire Department, Liberty Township Fire Department, Cowan Fire Department, and Hamilton Township Fire Department for coverage. They wrote, “Firefighting is a team sport and we all support each other.”

Faster fiber coming  –  Delaware County, Indiana, yesterday announced plans for a $2.3 million project with AT&T* to build a state-of-the-art network and deliver AT&T FiberSM to some 1,250 customer locations in parts of the county.  The project is contingent upon a final contract between the county and AT&T.  Extensive planning and engineering work for this project will begin immediately once a contract is completed.  The network buildout is expected to be complete within 18 months of contract execution.
