What we talk about when we talk about a disease that has no cure
There have been two modern-day travesties in Indiana politics. And the state’s ultra-conservative element has been responsible for both of them.
HAMMOND | Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. has announced a re-election bid for Hammond mayor -- but doesn't rule out running for governor if former Gov. Evan Bayh decides not to run for that office.
INDIANAPOLIS | This could be the saga of “LeBron Bayh.”
If former Gov. Evan Bayh (1989-97) runs for governor in 2016 and wins he'll be the third, not the second, Indiana governor to serve nonconsecutive terms. In addition to Gov. Isaac Gray (1880-81, 1885-89) identified in a Monday story, Gov. Henry Schricker, a Starke County native, was the stat…
INDIANAPOLIS | Former Indiana governor and U.S. Sen. Evan Bayh hinted Monday that another run for governor could be in his future.

INDIANAPOLIS | Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. has established a political action committee to support Democratic candidates running for statewide office and the Indiana General Assembly.
The selection of Gary for the Obama administration's Strong Cities, Strong Communities Initiative is a sign of the new era of collaboration nationally and locally.
In 1988, with 20 years into the Republican gubernatorial dynasty, there stood the ideal candidate — Lt. Gov. John Mutz. He was of excellent pedigree, having served with distinction under two-term Gov. Robert Orr. He had been a successful state senator and a corporate executive.
New Year’s resolutions are meant to improve an individual’s life and the lives of those around him or her.
I suspect Santa will have forgotten to deliver some gifts today. I’ll help him out with presents to the following:
Hey, Tommy, what day is it?
INDIANAPOLIS | John Gregg, the 2012 Democratic nominee for Indiana governor, announced Wednesday he will not make a second run for the state's top job.
Senator Dan Coats was a person who has this legendary status that certain government leaders from Indiana just seemed to acquire. The iconic people you hear about from the Hoosier state like Congressmen Dan Burton (30 years), Lee Hamilton (34 years), Senator Birch Bayh (18 years), Otis Bowen…
