  • Anti-class basketball bill has no business in state legislature

    The anti-class basketball bill that Sen. Mike Delph, R-Carmel, has introduced in this session of the Indiana legislature is consistent with state Republicans’ attempts to bludgeon the little guy.
    Like the so-called “right-to-work” bill (which would actually lead to less tolerable working conditions) that Republicans are pushing, Delph’s bill would make it hard for the little guy to get a fair shot.
    In this case the little guy is  every small school in the state.

  • COLUMN: Right to work all about politics

    By BRIAN GRAY, Guest Columnist

    David Hammond’s guest column (Dec. 26) citing just one source as to whether or not a right-to-work state does better then a non-right-to-work state in providing better wages and better work conditions is a bit misleading.

    If one looks at Chiefexecutive.net, a business-based Web site, Indiana is ranked No. 6 for attracting new business.

    Now to be fair, some right-to-work states are ranked above Indiana in that survey, but a lot of them are ranked below us.

  • COLUMN: Legislative session under way

    By RICHARD YOUNG, District 47 State Senator

  • EDITORIAL: Silly legislation helps no one

    Lately we’ve been hearing a lot from Indiana Republican lawmakers about how disappointed they are in Democrats for not showing up to make decisions in the first session. We could not agree more with them. We realize there are a lot of opinions running amuck at the moment due to hot-button issues on the table, most notably the right-to-work legislation.

    No matter what your opinion on the matter, everyone must agree that Republicans and Democrats not agreeing to hear one another out and work to compromise gets nothing done and we all suffer.
