State battles legislative creep (01/29/12)
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Gov. Mitch Daniels may be fighting the rising cost of a college education via "credit creep," but he's relying on Indiana's "legislative creep" to get the job done. More than 40 years ago, lawmakers gathered at the Statehouse just once every two years. But in 1970, they amended the state constitution to begin meeting annually, adding a "short session" during even-numbered years to deal with "emergency" legislation...

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Charlie White might not have been aware he could be breaking election law when he registered to vote at his ex-wife's address in Indiana's May 2010 Republican primary. But whether he acted deliberately or out of ignorance, experts say the action undermines the credibility of the state's top elections office...

Thankful for the lack of political interest (01/29/12)
For the moment, I'm thankful James David isn't interested in politics. I'm thankful he's only 15-months-old and is more incline to jump on the floor, pick up a toy car and start playing. It seems like every other night, there is a debate on television. As if conducting 50-plus debates will help anyone learn anymore about the current Republican candidates for the presidency...
Congress and a 225th birthday (01/29/12)
There's a major political event approaching this fall, and though I have no doubt it will be overshadowed by the elections, I hope you'll carve out some time for it anyway. On Sept. 17, we'll observe the 225th anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution...
New guidelines don't go far enough (01/29/12)
To the Editor: School lunches may soon look different -- but not different enough to stem the tide of childhood obesity. The United States Department of Agriculture just issued new guidelines for school lunches, but as a dietitian, I think it's unfortunate that burgers, pizza and other unhealthy foods will likely still be front and center...
Was school board vote valid? (01/29/12)
To the Editor: When North Clay Middle School was being planned, I was a school board member. At the planning stage of North Clay Middle School, I asked the superintendent how placing our sixth-graders into this middle school would improve the education they were getting in our elementary schools?...
