Hanover, IN—Hanover College Environmental Stewardship committee, in partnership with Big Oaks National Wildlife Refuge will screen the documentary film The Guardians on February 12 at 7:00 PM in Classic Hall, room 102. The Jefferson County Pollinator Action Group, Oak Heritage Conservancy, and the Pollinator Partnership also support this event. The event is open to the public. A visually dazzling meditation on the balance between humans and nature, The Guardians poetically interweaves the lives of the threatened monarch butterfly with an indigenous community fighting to restore the forest they nearly destroyed. Migrating 3,000 miles to hibernate in towering sacred firs, the monarch population faces collapse. In the valley below, the people of Donaciano Ojeda struggle to support their families in their ancestral lands now part of the protected Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve. Santos, a charismatic avocado farmer and Aristeo, a philosophical tree caretaker are the storytellers of the community as they confront internal divisions, illegal loggers and their own mortality. When the directors started filming The Guardians in 2014, the monarch population hit an all-time record low of 33 million, down from 1 billion just twenty years prior.Shot over three years, this cinematic journey through the butterfly dense mountaintops of Michoacan tells an intimate story of a unique community at the front lines of conservation.

Statewide—As we await federal stimulus checks designed to help mitigate the financial effects of the coronavirus pandemic, people should be prepared for phone calls from scammers posing as Internal Revenue Service agents according to Attorney General Curtis Hill.The Attorney General’s office says that some Indiana residents have reported receiving such calls, in which scammers attempt to obtain the personal and financial information of would-be victims. Scammers often make themselves seem believable by reciting personal information they already have obtained such as an individual’s name and address. Senior citizens are sometimes particularly susceptible to believing that such calls are real. Complaints about IRS imposter scams are a common concern reported to the Office of the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division. In this case, the only new twist is that the scammers are tying their calls to the anticipated relief payments.Hoosiers who believe they have encountered possible scams may file a complaint with the Office of the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division clicking here and clicking “File a Complaint.” If you need more information about the services provided by the office, you may call 1-800-382-5516.
