  1. So, doesn't Hancock County recoup a great deal of money if the alleged drunk driver is indeed intoxicated and operating a motor vehicle over the legal limit? By the time the driver is convicted, he/she is paying a great deal of money in court costs and fines. So why is the prosecutor whining about this? Because he and the judges stand to earn less because their expenses have increased? Or do they need to get the sheriff to kick in some of his pay for this? The fact is, the accused have a right to a fair trail and there are costs involved. This isn't about TV crime dramas, this is about a mistrust of police and poor public image/reputation they too often have in rural counties such has Hancock "Handcuff" county. County residents shouldn't have to foot this bill. Let's recoup that from the court fees and increase the fines for the guilty.

  2. Daniel, if you are aren't happy with the decision on August 13 and want to suggest the US change marriage so you can keep it for your religion and so that other religions can't use the term, you are free to work with the legislature to get laws changed. On August 13 judges are going to decide if Indiana and Wisconsin can continue to discriminate with respect to marriage as it is defined currently. I hope that discrimination stops no matter what it is called.

  3. The 1st paragraph speaks of creating a license plate recognizing the Indy 500 yet in the 2nd paragraph the license plate approved mentions the 500 Festival- 2 different entities/businesses- which one is correct?

  4. John … marriage was already defined (1 man / 1 woman) centuries before the US was formed. The very last group of people that I would want to define anything having to do with morality would be the US Congress / Government. ? Marriage is not a right … it’s an institution which is defined in history / culture. If I were in your situation … I’d just ask for the various legal status that you are pursuing to be granted to any two (or three? Five?) people that want their lives legally intertwined. That way the integrity of Marriage for the vast majority of humanity is not violated … and you get the legal status you are seeking. Sounds like a win-win.

  5. Been a fan since '72 when I went to my first race at Indy, then Talladega in '73. Been to seven Daytona 500's, eleven Indy 500's, three Brickyard 400's and dozens of others over the years. Never have I seen the sport drop like a rock and it is dropping, dropping, dropping. Tens of thousands of empty seats. Sure the Brickyard may get 80,000 and hardcore fans will say that is a sign of how popular racing is. Wrong. If the Colts played in a 150,000 seta stadium they would sell at least 110,000. There is that much demand. Racing is dying. Dying. Dying. Just get over yourselves. Peopel today are like, cars going in circles wasting gas? You got to be kidding me! Sorry. That is how it is and I am a fan!
