Honoring our Hoosier heroes
Election Day always reminds me of just how fortunate we are to live in a representative democracy. Over 60 nations still don't have free elections, and those people remain powerless against their government. In America, this is not the case.

Promoting Indiana agriculture
Living in Hamilton County this might come as a surprise you, but there are more than 60,000 farms in Indiana. They span roughly 15-million acres and grow some of the best products in the nation. While we are the 10th largest farming state, a majority of our food comes from outside of Indiana. In fact, out of the $16 billion we spend on food each year, less than 10 percent comes from Indiana. Despite these statistics, demand for products made by Hoosier farmers continues to grow.

Indiana: A leader in innovation
From manufacturing to education, advances in technology impact every industry and aspect of Hoosier life. As state leaders, it is important that we find ways to not only remain competitive in the technology industry, but also ensure that our students - Indiana's future leaders - have the skills necessary to compete for jobs in these high-demand fields. Fortunately, there are countless individuals in Indiana, both in the public and private sector, who are working to ensure that Indiana remains a leader in innovation.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month
For many, the month of October means enjoying the last few weekends of high school football, spending time with family at the local pumpkin patch and planning the perfect Halloween costume. However, across the nation, October is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a time of remembrance for those we have lost and advocacy for those who are currently suffering.

Domestic violence is not an easy topic to discuss, but it is one which truly impacts every Hoosier community. Regardless of one's gender, age, race, religion or socio-economic status, domestic violence is a plague which knows no boundaries.

Combating food insecurity in Hamilton County
It's 6 a.m. and time to wake the kids up for school. Although the bus does not arrive until 7, you know it takes them about an hour or so to get ready. At first, your kids are reluctant to get up, but before too long, they are wide awake, laughing and looking forward to a new day. You help them make their bed and pick out their clothes for school, of course reminding them to put their dirty clothes in the hamper.

House Republican internship program now accepting applications
For students about to graduate or recent graduates, this can be a challenging time in life. Right now, many are asking questions like what career path should I pursue or will I be able to find a job after college? The good news, which I outlined in one of my recent columns, is that jobs in Indiana are at an all-time high. In fact, in Hamilton County, we have the lowest unemployment rate in the entire state. With more jobs and opportunities readily available, one of the more frequently asked questions now is: do I have the skills necessary to obtain a job in an area that interests me?
