Help is on the way from our area to those getting hit by Hurricane Sandy. Indiana Michigan Power is sending about 40 crews to help get the power back on after Sandy rolls through. Many of them, including bucket trucks and linemen, left South Bend Monday morning. Millions are expected to be without power along the east coast because of Sandy. The I&M crews from our area were headed to West Virginia where up to 18 inches of snow could fall in spots. “We are going to have to see what kind of damage the storm does, and then they will be kind of working under the direction of the utilities that serve those customers, and that will determine how long they will be gone, said I&M spokesman David Mayne.

We are at the end of the election season, and so far our area hasn't received a visit from any of the presidential candidates. But over the last 130 years we have seen our share of campaign stops. According to the Center for History, one of the earliest visits came from Benjamin Harrison in 1888. He was running against and eventually beat Grover Cleveland. Harrison chose Clem Studebaker, the co-founder of the Studebaker Company, to be on his inaugural committee. Then in 1896, William Jennings Bryan visited South Bend.

The sounds of new home construction are once again echoing through some Michiana neighborhoods. The past few years were pretty difficult for many homebuilders, who struggled to find business, but now it appears they're recovering, though slowly. “We feel like we rested during 2010 and 2011, so now we're ready to go back to work,” said Andy Place Jr., president of the St. Joseph Valley Homebuilders Association. It's easy to pass by the construction site just south of Eddy Street Commons, near Notre Dame, and not think much of it. The site, called the triangle development, is filled with dirt, heavy equipment and construction material -- so what?

The Perseid meteor shower, which was to peak in the early morning hours on Sunday, has generated lots of interest across Michiana. 50 to 60 shooting stars per hour were possible, and the weather cooperated for fantastic watching. If you're lucky, you may have seen a handful of meteors dart across the cosmos, but you had to be patient. NASA says the meteor shower was to take place Aug. 11-13, so if you missed the show last night or early Sunday morning, you may have another shot to see it late tonight or early Monday, although it probably has peaked.
