Indiana Port Commission Unveils New Internet Site 
	The Indiana Port Commission unveiled a new internet website today. The 
site, located on the world wide web at www.portsofindiana.com, is a onestop 
source for information and interaction with Indiana’s three public ports: 
Indiana’s International Port/Burns Harbor at Portage, Clark Maritime Centre at 
Jeffersonville and Southwind Maritime Centre at Mount Vernon.
	“Establishing this truly interactive homepage on the internet gives the 
world a window on Indiana’s ports and the state as a whole,” said Governor Frank 
O’Bannon. “I encourage business, government, teachers and students alike to 
visit the site, learn about the ports and tell us what they think via e-mail.”
	Besides providing background information on the ports, the site allows 
websurfers to download Indiana Port Commission press releases and articles, 
e-mail the ports, and subscribe to the commission’s award-winning magazine 
Indiana Portside.
	“This site has a lot to offer, but it is just the beginning,” said 
Indiana Port Commission Director of Communications, Spencer Valentine. 
“Eventually we hope this site will offer tariff and rate information and regular 
shipping schedules.”
	“It is important to get the word out about three of Indiana’s greatest 
economic centers, the public ports,” said Lieutenant Governor Joe Kernan. “In 
this age of digital communications, one of the best ways we can get that word 
out is via the internet at www.portsofindiana.com.
	The Indiana Port Commission is a seven member bi-partisan committee 
appointed by the Indiana Governor to develop and operate three public ports and 
a network of Foreign-Trade Zones statewide.  The state’s three public ports are 
Indiana’s International Port/Burns Harbor at Portage located on Lake Michigan, 
Clark Maritime Centre at Jeffersonville on the Ohio River, and Southwind 
Maritime Centre near Mount Vernon also located on the Ohio River.
