Logic on cannabis laws
State Rep. Jim Lucas does not mince words when it comes to his efforts to legalize marijuana in Indiana. As Lucas has told the Plain Dealer and other news media, he fully believes the benefits of cannabis far outweigh any potential dangers. He is not afraid to loudly voice his support of legalizing what some still call "demon weed."

How many more of our friends are we going to have to lose before we realize that the drugs are destroying us?

Toward common ground
When a large group of Indiana educators staged a rally at the Statehouse in March to push for more funding for K-12 and education reform, their words fell largely on deaf ears.

Time will tell
It's official. The jail tax is going away.

That is old news since the Jennings County Council showed clear signs indicating that it was going to rescind the controversial tax since last January - and even before that. The four rookies on the council - Mandy Creech, Bob Ellis, Mike Gerth and Charlie Weber - campaigned last year on the issue of abolishing the tax and all on Election Night 2018 said they would follow through on that promise.

To intervene or not a hard decision
The question of whether to intervene in other countries is among the toughest decisions in American foreign policy, if not the toughest. U.S. presidents wrestle with this question repeatedly: not only whether to intervene, but when and how to do so.

Choices for NV voters
North Vernon voters will have many important decisions to make next Tuesday. They will choose whether to keep the current mayor or elect a new one. Voters will also have choices on three of the five city council positions involving whether to reinstate incumbents or go with the challengers. Two of the council incumbents as well as the clerk-treasurer face no opposition, but that doesn't mean the Nov. 5 city election is not important.
