  • Session is short, but off to a good start

    FRANKFORT - With the holiday season behind us, the General Assembly returned to Frankfort to prepare to deal with several crucial issues facing our Commonwealth.
    The first task of the 2013 legislative session was to elect leadership for the respective caucuses, receive committee assignments and essentially get our footing as we get ready for the work ahead of us.  It’s also a time of transition for me and the other new members in the House as we prepare for the first legislative session.

  • Have a heart, I’m glad I’ve got mine

    The reports of my death have only been the wishful thinking of those whose feelings I have somehow injured during my past 39 years as a community journalist.

    To those offended individuals, groups, political parties, zealots of egomaniacal causes and Indiana University basketball fans, I offer my apology and proclaim that because of modern medical technology you have to deal with me for one final year.

  • Some names, events you never forget

  • Unspeakable tragedy

    It’s a nightmare no parent, grandparent, sibling or spouse should ever have to through.

    My heart aches for those who lost loved ones and were affected in the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting.

    My heart breaks for the children that were lost by such a senseless act of violence.
