Councilwoman responds to City on park issue
In all due respect, I would like to respond to the "city side" of the story concerning the development of Seminary Park. As sometimes happens, memories become faded and I might note that the Mayor was not at the meeting yet he has listened carefully to one side of the story.

The Park Board meeting and presentation did not meet any of the standard "Executive Session" rules. Steve Cooke noted several times that discussion of the project had been held on multiple occasions with business people, Council and others. Steve had informed me at a public ribbon cutting about a month earlier. Once discussion happens, nothing is confidential. The materials handed out at the meeting were allowed to go out of the room, again not confidential.

Bird's eye view of a devastated city
Robert Kearns knows first-hand the devastation caused by the atomic bomb. The veteran pilot of World War II flew several medical missions into the city of Hiroshima in August of 1945, just days after the bomb was dropped.

Kearns was born in Peoria, Illinois on September 22nd, 1922. His family moved to Indianapolis when he was a youth.

He attended Cathedral High School, graduating in 1940.

Kearns enlisted in the Army Air Corps in November of 1942, becoming an Aircraftman.

Flexibility would help direct more money to classrooms
As a member of the House of Representatives, I remain dedicated to supporting educators and students. Working to direct more dollars to the classroom and improving testing is among my priorities.

Indiana spends over half of our state's general funds on K-12 education. It is vital that the legislature gives schools the ability to channel more dollars into educational needs, such as teacher salaries and classroom supplies. I have authored a proposal for a new law that would meet that need by implementing three changes: Every school would have an Education Fund and an Operations Fund, the capacity to move money between the two funds and property tax levies would be combined into a single levy.
