LOGANSPORT – As a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan, I’m not beyond hearing
grumblings from those who contend the Cubs organization is maintaining a
nostalgic museum to baseball in the form of Wrigley Field.
a subtle way of saying the only major league baseball,
championship-caliber competitors associated with Wrigley Field are those
who either have their numbers retired and flying on flagpoles or their

Cubs are a passive voice team; the Yankees, Rangers, Red Sox and
Cardinals are active voices.

there are the same whispers about the Indiana Republican Party that are
relevant for the Indiana Democratic Party as well.
selection of Tim Berry as state GOP chair was the best possible choice
Gov. Mike Pence could have made. Berry is battle-tested in statewide
campaigns, he’s served without a hint of besmirchment and he has the
ideology of someone who can be the trunk of a tree instead of out on the
limb of one.
