  • A time to weep and a time to laugh I knew it was bound to happen someday in the not-too-distant future; it finally came to pass that I had to lay my beloved Toyota Rav4 to rest.

  • Calling all Jellicle cats Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Cats” just opened at Beef & Boards. With a cast of 22, it fills the theater with feline goodness.

  • Biz tax cut could harm local government INDIANAPOLIS - Gov. Mike Pence has spent months pushing the idea of repealing the tax on business equipment that provides $1 billion per year to schools, libraries and local governments. He's yet to come up with a plan to replace those lost tax dolla

  • Stop playing with my food Those who know me, or who regularly read this column, know that food issues — including local foods, food security, manipulated (GMO) foods and chemical-free foods — are among my favored topics. Food issues affect our own health and safety, the economy of our local communities, as well as the planet’s welfare.

  • Some legislation flies under the radar If you’ve ever blown past a school bus with its bright red “stop” arm extended, convinced you wouldn’t get caught breaking the law because no police were around, you might think twice about trying it again. This week the Indiana House voted overwhelmingly to let schools put cameras on those stop arms. Police could use the video to slap hard-to-catch violators with fines up to $1,000.
