Facebook Twitter Jon Zimney/95.3 MNC The City of South Bend has opened applications for a new grant program designed to compensate local restaurants for operational changes they’ve made to do business amid the COVID-19 pandemic.“Our restaurants have been hit hard by the pandemic and have been forced to make additional investments to make dining safer even while they’ve seen a decrease in business,” said Mayor James Mueller. “We’re all looking forward to the day when restaurants get back to pre-pandemic traffic, but in the meantime the City is working to help them weather this storm.”The City has partnered with the South Bend Regional Chamber of Commerce to administer the Restaurant Innovation Grant program. Locally owned restaurants located within South Bend will be eligible for $2,000 grants to reimburse expenses they’ve incurred to install plexiglass, pivot to take-out service, or purchase equipment to improve the outdoor dining experience during the winter months.“No industry has been hit harder than the restaurant industry, and some difficult days lie ahead for many of our local restaurants. We’re grateful the City has recognized the challenges so many of these small businesses have faced and in response marshalled the resources to help provide a needed lifeline,” said Jeff Rea, President and CEO of the South Bend Regional Chamber of Commerce. “We look forward to teaming up to deliver this program and to provide some immediate relief to so many important business partners.”To qualify for grant support, businesses must meet the following criteria:Restaurants or bars must be independently owned and/or headquartered and located within the City of South Bend.Must have a business license with the City of South BendMust currently be open to the general publicMust be able to submit up to a 250 word description of the investments or innovations made towards increasing the public’s safety and their employees, along with proofs in the form of pictures, receipts, or other evidence of your innovationsTo apply, visit southbendin.gov/IGR.

  • Ben Zobrist could return to Cubs this season, Theo Epstein says

    first_img Craig Kimbrel focused on being ‘best that I can’ with Cubs Cubs president Theo Epstein is leaving the door open for Ben Zobrist to return at some point this season. Epstein said he’s “been in constant touch” with Zobrist, who has been on the restricted list since May 7 for what was initially described as personal reasons. He and his wife, Julianna (whose maiden name is Gilbert), filed for divorce the following week after 14 years of marriage. Nolan Arenado says next Cubs-Rockies series could get ‘spicy’ Though there is optimism about Zobrist, Epstein isn’t committing to anything just yet.”Nothing has been determined,” Epstein said.center_img ESPN reports, citing an unidentified source, that Zobrist’s return likely wouldn’t be until late in the season (potentially in September). If he does return, team officials expect Zobrist would need a significant amount of time to practice and he would be assigned to a minor-league rehab stint before joining the lineup. “Certainly the door is open and the possibility of a return is there for him later in the season,” Epstein said. “We’ll see how things evolve. We’d all love to see him back here, and he would love to be back. We’ll see if that can come to fruition.”Zobrist, in the final year of a four-year deal with the Cubs, was hitting .241 with 10 RBIs in 26 games before taking time off in May. “I think he’s got an idea in mind how he’d like this to go,” Epstein told reporters Thursday (via the Chicago Sun Times). “But his priorities are clear that it’s family first, and so for the immediate future that’s what he’s going to be tending to. … There could be a point later on where that would allow him to theoretically come back.“There’s been some more definition to how he hopes this thing might go.” Related Newslast_img read more
