As if enough hasn’t been said, I’d like to weigh in on Lake County’s 911 debacle.
I read the story of the effort the attorney general's office is expending to stop a dying woman who happens to be gay from collecting some benefits. These were approved by our judiciary.
We're all in the same boat when it comes to civil rights, but some of the passengers are paddling backward.
As scary as Asian carp are, the prospect of shutting down the link between Lake Michigan and the Mississippi River watershed is even more scary.
The current status of education policy and administration in Indiana, as professed by Republicans, can best be summed up by applying the apt title of Diane Ravitch's new book, "Reign of Error."
It would be wrong to focus only on the political angle in the Marion County judge's ruling Friday that ended Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz's lawsuit against the State Board of Education. There's a broader, yet ignored, issue involved here.
INDIANAPOLIS | A Marion County judge ruled Friday that Glenda Ritz, the Democratic state superintendent of public instruction, cannot use her Department of Education attorneys to sue the Republican-appointed State Board of Education.

The recent Times editorial “Government meetings aren’t prayer meetings” provides a welcome opportunity to explain why the office of the attorney general files friend-of-the-court briefs on cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.
It's encouraging to know our state government will spend tax dollars to defend our freedom of religion, as long as it is the "right" religion. Did I say encouraging? I meant scary.
Boating down the Wabash River near Lafayette on July 16, I witnessed firsthand the broad, winding river’s scenic beauty, but also got a lesson in the environmental challenges the river faces when two Asian carp hurled themselves out of the water and landed in our boat.
SPRINGFIELD | Attorney General Lisa Madigan is sharply criticizing an oil company owned by an appointee of Gov. Pat Quinn, saying the firm is “the worst polluter in the field of Illinois oil production.”
INDIANAPOLIS | Tuesday is the deadline for Indiana residents who have not previously signed up to get their telephone numbers added to the state's newest "Do Not Call" list.
Mr. President, the buck stops with you.
