Anyone considering installing solar panels on their residence or business in Indiana should be aware of two important deadlines looming.
I was deeply disappointed that the Republicans who control the Indiana General Assembly decided once again not to establish an independent commission to do the redistricting after the 2020 census. It’s a serious failure of leadership and a serious blow to the cause of democracy in Indiana an…
I am writing this letter in protest, over when the Afghanistan people who assisted our troops while this conflict lasted will be pulled out.
All over the media I have observed people decrying the current labor shortage. Many blame it on unemployment insurance. Some believe it is a lack of skilled professionals. They claim that more training is necessary. One factor I have yet to see discussed is that today’s worker values freedom over money.
In Indiana, only 37.7% of the people have been fully vaccinated. Yet the government has already lifted crowd and business restrictions, and mask mandates, but supposedly only for those that have been "fully vaccinated."
During a recent worship service, a YouTube video was played of the speech given by then President Ronald Reagan on Memorial Day in 1985.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology puts voter fraud at .00006% nationwide, proving we do a very good job securing our elections. In a democracy, it is important that a large portion of the population votes.
May is Mental Health Month. By urging my public officials to prioritize suicide prevention, mental health, and crisis care, I am hoping to influence collective change to support #MentalHealth4All.
Will Rogers was back in Anderson to make a public appearance in the Anderson High School gymnasium on April 5, 1928, to benefit a charity program of the American Legion post.
Did you know that farmers in the USA spray their fields with 280 million pounds of glyphosate herbicide each year? Since this chemical is "disarmed" by a common element in soil, once it touches dirt, it is theoretically "safe for the environment."
Sen. Mike Braun of Indiana wants President Joe Biden to finish building "The Wall." Never mind the COVID-19 progress, the economic stimulus money that is working for the most needy of us, or the 43 states that are passing voter restriction laws to suppress the African American voters.
The crown jewel in Anderson is the White River, flowing peacefully through the city. Unfortunately, it has been ignored for years except perhaps used as a dump for contaminated waste products.
On March 31, your paper published what is termed a "sponsored advertorial" entitled Body and Mind. I believe this is a feature which seems to be published on medical information about once a month.
There is a bit of an unexpected tussle going on right now in the Statehouse. You see, the Republican supermajority did not expect to have any problem pulling more money away from public education and giving it to private education entities. It turns out that people are pushing back, and the …
Shame on you, Scott Underwood! You apparently don't know what being a "diehard" Cubs fan means. You stick with them through the good days and the bad!
I am so disheartened! What a blatant disregard for diversity for our school board to choose to have no advisory committee comprised of residents of color, and online poll results have 50% of the community not wanting an advisory committee with residents of color.
Last month, February, ended the traditional annual celebration of Black History Month. The month is a time of both historical reflection and the highlighting of significant achievements of African Americans.
Citizens are wanting inclusivity and top-notch professionals for our children. The demographics of the public school system have changed and new people, processes, and technologies are critical for success.
Feb. 7 was the first-year anniversary of Donald J. Trump telling writer Bob Woodward that the virus was deadly stuff, more deadly than the flu. National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien told Trump the virus would be the largest national security crisis of his presidency.
Welcome news for all Americans. President Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion COVID-19 will be passed and money will be going out to low-income people and so much more. It will help to speed up vaccine doses and distribution will help to get more people protected. It will also help state and local governments to keep first responders on the job.
My sister and I witnessed the C-SPAN showing of Jan. 6 from 1 to 10:30 p.m. We had hoped to update our education with a current civics lesson and, instead, were horrified to see the orderly change of presidents turn into insurrection.
I am greatly troubled by the news that the Anderson Community Schools board of education has been unwilling to accept the offer of a biracial group of city leaders to meet and share thoughts about the hiring of a new school superintendent.
I recently heard Mr. Trump speak again, and have also been listening to his followers repeat over again that the recent election was "stolen" from Mr. Trump, and that he actually won. This, despite massive evidence that this is simply not true on any level.
Imagine an Indiana without the wetlands that play host to a vast variety of migrating waterfowl. Imagine an Indiana without the estimated 300 nesting pairs of our national symbol, the bald eagle. Imagine an Indiana without winding nature trails and nature parks built around isolated wetlands…
When schools closed at the beginning of the pandemic, teachers were praised for the measures they took to care for the health and well-being of their students. Here in the Hoosier state, that sentiment did not last.
I am nonplussed by the Anderson Community Schools board’s refusal to add a minority ad hoc community representative to the discussion regarding the choice of a superintendent. In fact, why only one? Why not at least two?
