Old-time worship will still get the job done.
I have the answer to Nicholas Cisar's Dec. 12 question. He asks why Beth White, the aspiring Democratic candidate for Indiana secretary of state, believes requiring a photo ID is an insult to voters and should not be required. He says he is "at a loss in trying to fathom why White makes this…

To drivers who insist on driving 10 to 15 miles an hour below the posted speed limit, I say this: The person trapped behind you may be responding to a family emergency, needing to get to the hospital ER to comfort an injured child or parent or maybe just needs to find a bathroom in a hurry. …
A fact: 1 in 5 American children go hungry every day. Millions of American children live in poverty at no fault of their own. The GOP cuts food stamps to starving families, the elderly and disabled. Food pantries are not meeting the high demand, and many are turning people away.
After the government shutdown and threat of a federal default from a few months ago, it was extremely refreshing to see Sen. Patty Murray and Rep. Paul Ryan lead the budget conference committee to a bipartisan compromise that resulted in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013. Their ability to fi…
John Mutz, former Indiana lieutenant governor, is a member of the Indiana Chapter of the Campaign to Fix the Debt.

I have some not-so-breaking news: Bullying still exists.

Last year, crossing guards worked 2.5 hours a day. School was ending. This was the first year we could not collect unemployment, and it hurt a lot of families. Our hours got cut to 1.5 per day.
A farm where thousands of cows never go outside to enjoy fresh air and sunshine while grazing in pastures and where thousands of pigs are kept in pens for the purpose of being on display as they give birth is not considered a wonderful place for those of us who have compassion for animals. T…

Thanks to multimillion-dollar Northwest Indiana Regional Development Authority grants, the Whiting and Hammond lakefronts and surrounding areas have been developed and are extremely inviting visitor destinations. Yet the proposed air show (what happened to the "water" part?) has been moved m…
Meteorologists confirmed more than 74 tornadoes ravaged the Midwest over a two-day period in November, leaving 10 dead and hundreds injured in Illinois and Indiana alone. It is proof that communities need to be prepared for nature’s fury and other disasters.
Recent polls show the once revered chief executive, Barack Obama has dropped to an all-time low of 40 percent approval rate. I'm shocked — not that his disapproval is so high, but that there are still 40 percent of the population who think he is doing a good job.
Ed Soltys' manifesto gave us permission to disagree with him, and I do, with his comment on Social Security. I think he has overlooked the fact that this is a social insurance system designed to protect all members of the family unit that depend on the wage earner.

Read what the Bible states and see what God told Adam and Eve. They did not listen to Him. See what happened to Noah? See what the angels told Abraham, Sodom and Gomorrah. See what John told the seven churches of Turkey (Asia).
