  • 2/14/2020 Dear Editor,
    I just read in the about House Bill 1414 which concerns our Indiana Coal mines and shutting them down. I understand why Rep. Ed Soliday, Rep. Alan Morrison, Rep. Matt Hostettler, Rep. Ethan Manning and Rep. Bruce Borders support this bill.
  • 2/11/2020 Dear Editor,
    I am writing to you today because I am thrilled to see current Hamilton County Commissioner Mark Heirbrandt will be the Republican nominee in November 2020. I have no doubts that he will win re-election and will continue to lead Hamilton County responsibly, with taxpayers in mind.
  • 2/7/2020 Dear Editor,
    Senate Bill 131 will soon be crossing over to the Indiana Legislative House for committee hearings and approval of being a posted addition with our national and state flags in public and private schools’ classrooms and libraries. I support this addition with the two flags. Our children need to know the history of our Republic and how “In God We Trust” came to be a national motto on our coins and public buildings.
  • 2/7/2020 Dear Editor,
    As seventh-generation farmers from Hamilton County, we know first-hand the foundational role of farmers in Indiana’s workforce. Without the health care and benefits needed, it is challenging to encourage younger generations to continue the family farm tradition.
    Throughout its 100 year history, Indiana Farm Bureau has helped farmers by listening and responding to their needs. Today is no different. Farmers have identified the need for affordable health care, and Indiana Farm Bureau is responding by going before Indiana legislators to seek the approval to offer a health benefit option to provide more affordable health care to its members.
  • 1/27/2020 Dear Editor,
    Indiana legislators must act now to secure Hoosier women’s economic stability. On average, women in Indiana make 74 cents for their male peers’ dollar.
    For black women in Indiana, the number is 58 cents on the dollar. For Latina women, it’s 53 cents: the threat of financial instability is especially pressing for women of color.
  • 1/22/2020 The Beta Epsilon Chapter of Tri Kappa in Noblesville would like to say a very BIG THANK YOU to the community of Noblesville and beyond for the generous donations to the 2019 Red Stocking Fund. With your help, we surpassed our goal of $10,000.00. We raised $17,565.00 for the Annual Tri Kappa Red Stocking Fund. We were truly blessed and 100% of the money donated will be distributed to the school children of Noblesville through the Noblesville Township Trustee’s Office and Noblesville Schools. Fortunately we were able to provide more this year due to the generosity of others.
  • 1/11/2020 Dear Editor,
    In addition to a continuing Indiana issue involving the ridiculous high cost of licensing and registering a motorcycle which none of you have acknowledged or addressed I now find and read that Indiana is requesting along with 17 or more other Republican governors additional refugees for resettlement. This lack of limited logic appears to be the rationale, regardless of overall additional taxpayer cost . . . Additional cost to schools, assimilation cost, housing assistance, local taxpayer-supported social cost if any, etc. etc. are not being considered.
  • 1/4/2020 Dear Editor,
    It's a new year, a time for optimism and a sense of what's possible. It's also flu season - a time when we appreciate good health as well as health investments made on our behalf.
  • 10/26/2019 Dear Editor,
    On Wednesday, Indiana Senator Mike Braun, a Republican, and Delaware Senator Chris Coons, a Democrat, announced that they will form the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus in the United States Senate. As Indiana Faith Leaders, we want to recognize Senator Braun for stepping up at this historic moment to call for Climate Action.
    Responding to climate change is our moral responsibility and civic duty. We are heartened to hear that our Senator is taking a lead on one of the most important challenges of our time.
    Climate change affects everyone, especially those who have the least resources. Here in Indiana, we have seen and will continue to see negative consequences: increased flooding affecting crops and water quality; additional insect-borne illnesses; extreme heat waves affecting the health of our children, the elderly, and all those who work outside; and strained social services and government resources. We are also seeing extreme temperature fluctuations causing burdensome impacts on our roads and infrastructure. The impact of climate change will necessitate the movement of people displaced from other communities.
  • 10/24/2019 Dear Editor,
    Central Indiana has recently seen a rash of children getting ahold of unsecured guns and injuring themselves or someone else. Thursday in Mooresville, a two-year-old gained access to his mother’s unsecured gun and unintentionally shot and killed himself — please note I said “unintentionally” and not “accidentally.” These incidents are not accidents. They are preventable and it is up to us as adults to keep our kids safe.
    According to a 2015 survey that appeared in the Journal of Urban Health, about 13 million U.S. households with kids under 18 have at least one gun, and of those 13 million, approximately 4.6 million, or around 35%, of those homes have at least one gun that is loaded and unlocked. Around 350 kids gain access to a firearm and unintentionally shoot themselves or someone else each year in the U.S.
    Unsecured guns also play a large role in youth suicide. 500 kids die by suicide with a gun each year in the U.S. and the Indiana Department of Health ranks Indiana as tenth in the nation for youth suicide attempts and first in the nation for youth suicide ideation.
