These are hard times for Congress. Our democracy’s keystone political institution is widely derided as ineffective, unproductive, irrelevant, and sadly out of touch.
Two events this week show Northwest Indiana isn't satisfied with the status quo. It's moving forward, and everyone should get on board with these two movements.
HOBART | Former U.S. Rep. Lee H. Hamilton will be the keynote speaker at this year's Ethics in Government breakfast next month.
Statehood Day is a day we relish with genuine Hoosier pride. On Dec. 11, 1816, Indiana, once part of the vast Northwest Territory, was officially recognized as a burgeoning new state comprised of great resources and the promise of a better future.
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…
The American public has lost patience with Washington. The question is, now what?

I find Ron Henson's Feb. 13 letter regarding the character of former U.S. Rep. Lee Hamilton of Indiana (1965-1999) very offensive.
WASHINGTON | Richard Lugar takes a seat at a well-worn circular conference table. In an office filled with shiny, new fixtures, it's a notable relic from his 36-year career in the Senate.
INDIANAPOLIS | The commission organizing events and celebrations marking the state's 200th anniversary has named First Lady Karen Pence Indiana's Bicentennial Ambassador.
Look at the Feb. 5 picture of Lee Hamilton. Does this look like a civil man? I think not. What business does he have out touring the banquet circuit and lecturing us on civility?
VALPARAISO | Political leaders and others will need to practice civility if America is to keep moving forward, former U.S. Rep. Lee Hamilton said Monday.
VALPARAISO – Porter County residents are invited to attend a special program event on February 4 presented by the Porter County Community Foundation and Indiana Humanities entitled “Civility Matters: Civility in Politics, Media and Business.” The program will feature a keynote by former Cong…

Pssst. Wanna see some political porn? Look here.
GARY | Area community leaders on Thursday were encouraged to promote civic engagement locally.
INDIANAPOLIS | Hoosiers are less likely to vote or even talk about politics compared to Americans living in other states, according to a new study co-sponsored by Indiana University Northwest.
Right after Labor Day, and right before the 10th anniversary of the terrible terrorist attacks on 9/11, is an ideal time to discuss economic and border security issues. Having discussed this at length last week with a Mexican diplomat doesn't hurt, either.
