  • I've been called for jury duty four times, but have never had to serve.

    And I have had letters to the editor printed in the Indianapolis Star, the Terre Haute Tribune-Star, the Greencastle Banner-Graphic, and the Brazil Times. And once in Reader's Digest.

    The County Council is the government body that sets policy and has budget oversight of County Government, like Congress in the Federal Government.

    The County Commissioners are the Executive Branch of County Government, responsible for the administration of county government and getting things done with what little funding they have........LOL! This is why one idea in this state is to replace the commissioners with one county executive; however, I think that is a bad idea as "three heads are better than one" and a single hired or appointed position with the power vested in the county commissioners would bring its own problems.

    Neither is an easy job, but someone has to do them.

  • I have taken part in a law being made. I've even told 2 Indiana Representatives how they should vote on a variety of laws- and they voted that way (I was 20 at the time, who votes the way a 20 year old tells them to?). I have not been on a jury. I've been called once, but quickly dismissed when they heard my occupation- lawyer. Prior to becoming a lawyer, I did go to court to see how it works- and still decided to go to lawschool. As far as most of the other questions, not really. But in my defense I haven't met a politician that made me care enough to try. Although my husband has written several letters to the editor that have been published in the Post Dispatch, does that count? :)
