Rich James shows his colors as a tax-and-spend liberal Democrat. He attacks Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. for recommending a countywide referendum on the South Shore expansion.
Indiana has more than $2 billion in the bank, and its roads and bridges are crumbling at an ever-increasing rate.
Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott has jumped off the South Shore just as the train was leaving the station.
One might say that the outcome of some of the contests on the Nov. 4 ballot was decided in February 2014.
Every time my bank balance gets down to the point where I probably shouldn’t risk bouncing a check, I get to thinking about the $2 billion Indiana has in the bank.
I just enrolled for The Times newspaper last month, after 30+ years with the Post-Tribune. I well remember the very passionate, focused and informative journalism of Rich James. I am well pleased to see his very thorough coverage of state and local government here in Indiana continue in The Times.
Gov. Mike Pence likes to talk about how the Indiana tax climate is so much better than is the case in Illinois. So true.
There are those who say the Indiana right-to-work law would be better named the right-to-work-for-less law.
When the first of five Northwest Indiana casinos opened in Gary in 1996, there were those who thought it would result in the revitalization of Northwest Indiana.
I had my first encounter with Indiana’s school funding formula while covering the General Assembly in the early 1980s.

The greatest sign I’ve ever seen hanging in a politician’s office said, “God so loved the world that he didn’t send a committee.”
I read Rich James' July 20 column where he complained about Hal Slager using taxpayer money to mail political propaganda to his constituents. I got one of the same July 19 from state Rep. Chuck Moseley.
Readers, please recall Rich James’s July 13 article. His article portrayed the death of Officer Westerfield as a lack of investment. James’ typical liberal dishonesty blames white flight, the modernization of the steel industry and the governor for Gary’s demise and lack of revenue. The fact…
If you live in the greater St. John Township area, you likely got a slick brochure in the mail the other day from state Rep. Hal Slager, a Schererville Republican.
Gary Police Officer Jeffrey Westerfield likely would be alive today if he had been riding with a partner early last Sunday.
Every other week or so there seems to be another story about Indiana Gov. Mike Pence flitting about New York City or Washington, D.C., in an effort to bolster his stock for a run for president in 2016. Politically, that isn’t far down the road.
Regionalism has been the buzzword in Northwest Indiana for a good while now.
Mark Leyva is pretty much the poster child for what’s wrong with the Lake County Republican Party.
