Listen to farmers, not oil industry lobbyists
This paper recently published a letter from oil lobbyist Maureen Ferguson attacking Indiana farmers and ethanol producers. I'm a farmer, and I want you to know the oil lobby is flawed in its arguments.

Her claims that corn used for ethanol increases the cost of food has been proven false. Food is cheaper.

On cyber bullying and censorship
People identify themselves with circles of connections. Are you a cat person or a dog person? Are you an IU fan or a Purdue fan? Save the Train or Pull the Rails and Build the Trails?

Governor address healthcare
Fellow Hoosiers,

As I've traveled across Indiana these past weeks, many of you have asked me about the federal health care debate. You want to know how legislation may affect us, especially those who rely on Medicaid, our HIP 2.0 program or the federal insurance exchange. You've asked about the potential gaps that could be created by reduced federal funding.
