Today's Opinions

  • COLUMN: Déjà vu all over again in Indy

    By SUE ELLSPERMANN, District 74 State Representative

    Week one of session and… it was “déjà vu all over again” as Yogi Berra would say. We showed up to our first General Assembly day Jan. 4 and had just three Democrats colleagues in the House withholding a quorum to do business.

  • COLUMN: ‘Tintin’ is an adventure film for all ages

    By ERIC HARRIS, Film Review

    When “The Adventures of Tintin” was announced, I wasn’t sure what the big deal was. Sure, Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson were teaming up for it, but I didn’t understand why.

  • COLUMN: Putting fairness first for Hoosier athletes, fans

    By BOBBY COX, Guest Columnist

    This time of year, with chords of “Auld Lang Sine” still ringing in our ears, it’s not uncommon or unnatural to think of days gone by as being more desirable than the era we live in today.  

  • LETTER: Every group should adopt Robert’s Rules

    In response to the “Your View” editorial published Dec. 26, I agree that Roberts Rules of Order should be put in place.

    (County Councilman Ron) Crawford was right in asking to follow Roberts Rules of Order. In all the committees and boards I have served on Roberts Rules of Order was in place or assumed the organization followed them. We had them in the Jaycees, we have in the Knights of Columbus, just to mention a couple.

  • COLUMN: What is the benefit of right-to-work?

    By TIMOTHY BRUMFIELD, Guest Columnist

    This letter is in reply to Dave Hammond’s letter in Monday’s edition of The News. I would like for it to be known that I have known Dave for 30-plus years and have always had a lot of respect for him.

  • COLUMN: 20 + C + M + B + 12

    By VINCE LUECKE, Editor

    The letters and numerals inscribed above the doors of homes in the Belgian town had me scratching my head a few years ago, but come Friday, I may have scrawled a similar message above my door in New Boston.

    20 + C + M + B + 12

    Friday was the traditional day for observing Epiphany, the 12th day after Christmas.

    The Twelve Days of Christmas, by the way, began Christmas Day and concluded the night of Jan. 5.

  • EDITORIAL: Daniels’ 2012 reform goals look practical overall

    Whether Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels is one of the nation’s best politicians is certainly debatable, but in setting his goals for this year’s legislative session he has shown that he is more practical than many politicians.

    In recent years the Tea Party movement has produced numerous elected officials – of the same political party as Daniels – who refuse to compromise on taxes, social issues or virtually anything. Therefore they have been able to enact very little of their political agenda.

  • COLUMN: Ellspermann: Right-to-work views and facts

    By SUE ELLSPERMANN, District 74 State Representative

    Much attention is being focused on one key issue in the upcoming legislative session: Right to Work. We are now seeing the opposition groups speak out strongly as the governor and the Speaker have made this a top priority.

    Opponents have every right to share their concerns. My commitment is to share openly with you the information we have gathered in extensive hearings, meetings and research to lead us to take a position of support for RTW.
