Covance Inc. is seeking state and local tax incentives as part of a $150 million expansion that would create 465 jobs at its Greenfield operations, nearly doubling the number of employees there. The proposed expansion would occur over the next four years and include the construction of a new laboratory, the renovation of existing buildings, and the hiring of administrative and laboratory personnel, according to the Daily Reporter in Greenfield. Princeton, N.J.-based Covance, a pharmaceutical research company, acquired Greenfield Labs from Eli Lilly and Co. in October 2008 for $50 million and a 10-year agreement from Lilly to use Covance’s services. At that time, 264 Lilly employees shifted to Covance. The company now employs 565 workers at the site, according to the newspaper. The Hancock County Council is set to hear Covance’s request for incentives July 11. Documents filed with the county show the 465 jobs would add $29 million in salaries with annual pay averaging more than $62,000 per employee, the Daily Reporter said. The company uses the Greenfield Laboratories to conduct early-stage tests of experimental drug molecules, readying them for tests in humans.

Officials from Indiana University Health Arnett broke ground on a facility in West Lafayette last week, according to the Journal and Courier of Lafayette. The new location, housed in a former Kmart store, will add outpatient imaging and expanded laboratory services to IU Health’s existing services in West Lafayette. The $8 million facility also will include an urgent care center with extended hours of operation. Indianapolis-based IU Health operates a full-scale hospital in Lafayette.

Dr. Yang Sun, an assistant professor of ophthalmology at the Glick Eye Institute, received a five-year, $1 million grant from the National Eye Institute to study congenital glaucoma with the hope of discovering new treatments for common forms of glaucoma. “Glaucoma is a leading cause of irreversible blindness in the world, yet the mechanisms of glaucoma development remain poorly understood, and treatments are limited,” Sun said. “I’m hoping to understand the mechanism of inherited congenital glaucoma, in the hopes that this will provide insight and potentially lead to novel treatments for commonly seen forms of glaucoma.”

  1. The Affordable Care Act is not the reason for the slow recovery and lack of high paying jobs for low skill workers. This is a trend that has been going since the early 80's. The recovery is real in the sense that GDP has been growing steadily at a rate of roughly 2.5% since the recession ended in late 2009 (newsflash, the stimulus worked) and the unemployment has been steadily dropping. The reason issue we are facing deals with a skills gap (not enough workers with the right credentials / experience) and wage stagnation due to corporate America being focused solely on maximizing profits for shareholders and not caring about the American middle class. Why should they? Multi-billion dollar mutlinational companies keep offshoring their profits in order to avoid paying taxes (which makes our deficit worse) they convince Americans to fight amongst themselves. If you want to create jobs and reduce the deficit, raise the minimum wage and change corporate tax laws. Of course, if you want to continue to belive that tax cuts for wealthy create jobs (which they don't) and allow corporations and the wealthy to continue to make you cover more and more of the costs of maintaining infrastructure, funding the military and other government services, then keep voting Republican. Hopefully someday you wake up and realize what's been going on since Reagan took office.

  2. Helloooooo, my name is Kate. I am so joyous to share this wonderful testimony about what Dr. Osoijiakhena, a great spell caster, did for me and my family. I wedded a year and 6 months ago, we were very happy during this whole period, i really love my husband so so much. I started noticing changes when he started coming home late at night, he stop paying attention to me, i later found out that he was having an affair with another lady, i dont know what she did to get to him but she really got a hold on him. He started spending weekends with her, and threaten for divorce. I was so heart broken and devastated, i spent many night thinking on how to get my husband back. A friend took it upon herself to to introduce me to one Dr. Osoijiakhena, a great spell caster, who once helped her with a spell that reunited her family and helped her husband secure a very prolific job. Though i had my doubts and never believed, but i decided to give it a try because i was helpless. I contacted Dr. Osoijiakhena, the Spell caster, to help me reunite my family by bringing back my husband from that other woman and break whatever hold she had on him. He only just told me that it's a minor issue, once i provide and do everything he will ask me to do, then i will have my family back again. I did everything he required. And he did it!!!!! My husband returned back to me and pleaded for forgiveness, and i also secured a well paid job in a big company, just as the great spell caster, Dr. Osoijiakhena said. I am so so happy to share my testimony on this wall. I am using this medium to tell every one that has same or similar problem to try the great Dr. Osoijiakhena through his mail: drosoijiakhenaspell@gmail.com......he is so real!!!!!

  4. My spring chicken of a Mom is turning 75 years young. She is a big fan of Frankie and I think she would get a big kick out of the film. I wanted to take her to the Broadway play but am priced out. Thanks for your time and consideration. Oh yea, Wildwood! Joie

  5. I thought this company would go bankrupt in 2013/2014. I predicted that four years ago. I was wrong. It will take another couple of years, but they will get there.
