Monday, April 30th, 2012

I was getting a little burnt out on the upcoming May primary and have been looking for something else to write about.  And then, like manna from heaven, I was looking at the Indianapolis Star’s website and found that the Indianapolis City-County Council Democrats are seriously looking at wasting more than $180,000 of the taxpayers’ […]

You Won’t Have Frank Straub to Kick Around Anymore

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

I was out of town when the news broke that Dr. Frank Straub had turned in his resignation as Public Safety Director.  I was originally planning to scribble down a few thoughts, but I figured I’d voice them instead. Frank Straub Commentary    

Focus on the 5th

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

The candidates for the 5th Congressional District met for what will likely be their last collective gathering at Ivy Tech Community College in Marion. The forum ran on WBAT Radio in Marion.  It was divided into two parts.  The first part was individual interviews.  The  second part allowed candidates to pose questions to each via […]

Most of the candidates running for the 5th Congressional District Republican primary will meet Wednesday night for another debate, but this one will have a twist that will make it different than all the previous encounters.  They will get to ask questions of each other. The debate will take place from 6-8 p.m. at the […]

Primary Colors

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

A friend of mine who I can best describe as “Democrat leaning” was lamenting the other day about how he really didn’t have any choices in the upcoming May 8 primary. So I told him if he was bored with his own party maybe he should go where the action is and look at the […]

Hitting the Airwaves This Morning

Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

I’ll be doing a little on-air radio work this morning at 11.  I’ll be filling on the “Back to Business” Radio program at my old stomping grounds of WXNT-AM, Newstalk 1430 .   We’ll be talking about the State of the City and I’ll have some audio from Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard and City-Council Vice-President Brian […]
