Brian A. Howey / Special to IBJ
A couple of days after Richard Mourdock upset U.S. Sen. Dick Lugar in the May primary, Howard County Republican Chairman Craig Dunn called me. Would I be open to a “clear the air” meeting with Mourdock?

Louis Mahern / Special to IBJ
So, you have been elected to the Legislature. Robert Redford once starred in a movie called “The Candidate.” At the end of the film and after an improbable win for the U.S. Senate, the Redford character asks his consultant, “What do we do now?"

STYRING: A Thanksgiving lesson in communismRestricted Content

Kyle Walker / Special to IBJ
As with Mark Twain, the report of the death of the Marion County Republican Party was an exaggeration. Don’t believe me? Check the 25th floor of the City-County Building.

November 3, 2012
Ted Boehm / Special to IBJ
The ballot this year will ask you whether two judges of the Indiana Supreme Court and four on the Court of Appeals will be retained in office. Don’t forget to vote yes on all six retention questions.

VAUGHN: Election bullies threaten right to voteRestricted Content

November 3, 2012
Julia Vaughn / Special to IBJ
With Indiana ranked a dismal 48th for voter turnout, you would think Republicans and Democrats could agree that our state needs to take aggressive steps to increase the number of active voters.

SHELLA: A kitchen where the heat is turned downRestricted Content

November 3, 2012
Jim Shella / Special to IBJ
All of a sudden, when I check out news stories on the Internet, a negative political ad pops up and I can’t make it go away. That is, unless I want the news story to go away, too.

SOUDER: Pence is show horse and work horseRestricted Content

November 3, 2012
Mark Souder / Special to IBJ
Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Gregg has hauled out the canard that Mike Pence is a “show horse,” not a “work horse,” based upon two “polls” in 2006 and 2008. Neither was scientific: They were anonymous, voting multiple times could be easily done, and rivals could rig the voting.

November 3, 2012
Robin Winston / Special to IBJ
Politics is an amazing, yet perplexing, profession. I have often wondered why President Obama trails Mitt Romney by a large margin in rural areas.

David Harris / Special to IBJ
For too long, power over urban schools has rested too much with district central offices and not enough with parents.

LEIGHTY: Real feminists want a better economyRestricted Content

November 3, 2012
Hilary Leighty / Special to IBJ

STYRING: Hoping it isn't too late to rethink RockportRestricted Content

October 13, 2012
Bill Styring / Special to IBJ
A $2.8 billion coal-to-natural-gas plant in Rockport has been in the works for several years, but the economics of the project seem dodgier by the day.

DELANEY: Family impact statements would be waste of moneyRestricted Content

October 13, 2012
Ed DeLaney / Special to IBJ
The state could direct $10 million to reducing childhood poverty and require that “family impact statements” be devised as to proposed regulations. The result would be that poverty would be alleviated by the $10 million minus the cost of the impact statements and the cost of the inevitable litigation about them.

Last summer, when the conservative Americans for Prosperity dumped $700,000 into Indiana on a TV ad attacking Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Joe Donnelly, I posted a story on the Howey Politics Indiana website talking about how the Super PAC was running the ad “on behalf” of Republican Senate nominee Richard Mourdock.

  1. Can your dog sign a marriage license or personally state that he wishes to join you in a legal union? If not then no, you cannot marry him. When you teach him to read, write, and speak a discernible language, then maybe you'll have a reasonable argument. Thanks for playing!

  2. Look no further than Mike Rowe, the former host of dirty jobs, who was also a classically trained singer.

  3. Current law states income taxes are paid to the county of residence not county of income source. The most likely scenario would be some alteration of the income tax distribution formula so money earned in Marion co. would go to Marion Co by residents of other counties would partially be distributed to Marion co. as opposed to now where the entirety is held by the resident's county.

  4. This is more same-old, same-old from a new generation of non-progressive 'progressives and fear mongers. One only needs to look at the economic havoc being experienced in California to understand the effect of drought on economies and people's lives. The same mindset in California turned a blind eye to the growth of population and water needs in California, defeating proposal after proposal to build reservoirs, improve water storage and delivery infrastructure...and the price now being paid for putting the demands of a raucous minority ahead of the needs of many. Some people never, never learn..

  5. I wonder if I can marry him too? Considering we are both males, wouldn't that be a same sex marriage as well? If they don't honor it, I'll scream discrimination just like all these people have....
