  • Only annexation winners are lawyers

    Over $200,000 has been spent from the public coffers. This represents tax money that has been spent in your name to force people into the city limits of Tell City. Shame on you, Tell City. You let this happen. That money could have been spent on new police cars or decent radios for the cops. Or it could have been used for a new compactor trash truck or potholes.

  • What about grants for our healthcare?

    In life there are not any dumb questions. However, honorable mention may go to (County Councilman) Steve Goodson at the recent council meeting.

    Mr. Goodson asked “if there were any grants the health department was using that could cover the cost?” of the county’s portion of health insurance.

    Please pass along to Mr. Goodson that when he finds those grants or large subsides, that he share that information with all of us currently struggling to pay our individual healthcare premiums.

  • Indiana police body camera bill finally on right path

    State legislation to determine rules for public access to video footage from police body cameras and police dashboard cameras in Indiana is finally on the right path. But there’s still work to do before House Bill 1019 would be an effective law.

    The version of the bill that had passed the House of Representatives was fundamentally flawed. Basically, it demanded that members of the public justify their need to see police video footage.

  • Scalia will be missed on high court

    Justice Antonin Scalia rightfully believed that when interpreting the Constitution, the Supreme Court had a duty to uphold the original intent of  the document established during its ratification.

    Though today, strictly  adhering to the Constitution is looked upon by large divisions of society as primitive. So out of respect to Justice Scalia, I wanted to resolve the common misinterpretations of our Constitution which have helped lead to the ill-fated state of our republic.

    The 8-year-old boy stood up from his seat, turned around and lifted the cushion he had been sitting on. He apparently found what he was looking for, because he quickly put the cushion back in its place and sat back down. Still, he looked worried.

  • Working for Hoosier veterans

    As a veteran of the Iraq War, I have always felt an obligation to bring attention and support to our state’s veterans.

    Working to ensure that those Hoosiers who honorably served our country are taken care of is a responsibility all of us as state representatives have. I co-authored two bills this session that would combat challenges our veterans face here in Indiana.

  • Amphitheatre offers bargains for everyone’s musical tastes

    For many years the Indianapolis Motor Speedway hosted only the Indianapolis 500. Then the track’s owners realized it did not make financial sense to use it only once a year, so now it also hosts a NASCAR race and Formula 1 race each year.

    Now the Lincoln Amphitheatre is using similar thinking to expand its offerings.

  • House Bill 1004 bad for teachers, bad for state

    For years, local teachers and school administrators have worked together to help best serve our students.

    If House Bill 1004 passes – the controversial bill purporting to solve Indiana’s teacher shortage – it will only worsen the shortage, thereby, making it harder to ensure kids in Cannelton City Schools have a caring and qualified teacher in every classroom.
