Organizers of The Taste of Bloomington say it was a difficult decision. For the fourth year in a row, the popular event has been cancelled. Several factors led to this year’s cancellation including an increase in supply costs, labor shortages and continued recovery efforts from the pandemic.

The Indiana Better Business Bureau is reminding Hoosiers to avoid typos when we’re searching the web. The Bureau says too many typos can make you a victim of the “fat fingers” scam.
