A reminder to all 2017-18 NAP credit recipients that the ‘60% Benchmark Report’ is due on January 8, 2018 by 5PM Eastern Standard Time (EST). The information obtained in this report will be used to determine which agencies have met the benchmark of selling 60% of their NAP credits by the December 31, 2017 deadline. Any agency who has not sold at least 60% of their credits will have their remaining credits de-allocated. These credits will then be redistributed to agencies that have sold 100% of their credits and requested re-allocation in the application period. This report will also be used to send contributor information to the Indiana Department of Revenue so that donors can claim their 2017 credits. Please be sure that all information is entered correctly; any inaccuracies in regards to personal information and tax credit amounts will result in a denial of an individual’s tax return. NAP recipients can access this report through their designated login at . The reporting period to be used is July 1, 2017-December 31, 2018. Please contact Brian Carman at bcarman@ or VMorrisMay@ with any potential issues ahead of the reporting deadline as failure to submit this report by the deadline above, will result in defunding for the current and 2017 NAP award. As always, please refer to your Program Manual for further guidance.
White was offered the part of Beverly Connelly, onscreen mother to Helen Hunt, in the Oscar-winning movie As Good as It Gets . But the devoted animal lover was horrified by the scene where Jack Nicholson's curmudgeonly anti-hero pitches a small dog down the trash chute of his apartment building. On The Joy Behar Show White explained, "All I could think of was all the people out there watching that movie … and if there's a dog in the building that's barking or they don't like—boom! They do it." She complained to director James L. Brooks in hopes of having the scene cut. Instead, he kept it and cast Shirley Knight in the role.
