OPINION November 20, 2014

Hometown, collaboration, initiative
It was like a scene from a movie. The kind Frank Capra would have made, had he made one that took place on Halloween.
A nighttime streetscape canopied with a thick blanket of leaves in hues of red and gold. Front yards transformed into graveyards and other ghoulish settings. Just the right amount of fright.
Gaggles of trick-or-treaters - straight from central casting - from toddlers being pulled in wagons to teens, too old to give much thought to a costume but not old enough to resist the lure of free candy. Parents, and even adults sans children, out enjoying the brisk night.

Indiana's property tax trends in 2014
If you want to know about Indiana property taxes, take a look at the General Assembly's website.
The Legislative Ser­vices Agency (LSA) has published 92 reports about property taxes in 2014, one for each county.
(Disclaimer: I helped.)
You'll find some charts, some text and a bunch of numbers about the taxes in your county, town, school district and all the other governments where you live.
You can find these reports online at iga.in.gov/documents/bec7ef25. It works best to click on the download icon and open the document on your own machine.

Farms and schools
This is the time of year when America celebrates the harvest, and specifically initiatives to put healthy, locally grown food on our childrens' plates at school.

States and cost-of-living differences
Indiana's income per person ranks 39th among the states.
Many people respond, "Yes, but isn't our cost of living lower? Doesn't a dollar in Indiana buy more than a dollar in New York or California?"
Unfortunately, data comparing the cost of living among the states couldn't be had - at least not from official sources.
