INDIANAPOLIS | Hands were shaken, hugs were shared and state lawmakers, who spent the past four months passionately opposing each other in great and small policy debates, were all smiles Saturday morning after House Speaker Brian Bosma gaveled out the 2013 Indiana General Assembly.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Indiana Senate voted in favor of 40 proposals Wednesday, the final day for the Senate to act on House-approved legislation.
The implementation of random drug testing at Lowell High (and probably other schools in the area) is counterproductive. Stripping students from extracurricular activities (a positive influence in their lives) and parking privileges isn't a solution to the problem of drug use.

Drug testing high school students is simply wrong. The end-result is not less drug use, but lower graduation rates and less extracurricular participation.
DYER | With a new drug-testing policy in place for most town employees, Dyer officials now must decide on a budget for the tests.
LOWELL | The Tri-Creek School Corp. board is considering following the lead of other school districts by randomly testing high school students for drugs.
