  • MERRILLVILLE – Political campaigns come and go, but one thing has stayed the same over nearly a decade in Northwest Indiana. Yes, Virginia, can you say Cline Avenue Bridge? And, rightly so, the local Democrats continue to turn the bridge to their political advantage. The bridge was a major link between the Chicago Skyway and Northwest Indiana,  particularly the casinos and area steel mills and other industries. The state closed the elevated bridge in 2009, citing structural deficiencies. Although former Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels said the structure would be rebuilt by the state, he quickly washed his hands of the issue. The state then contracted with a private firm to rebuild the structure, although not to its original size. United Bridge Partners has started work on an operations and maintenance building in East Chicago. Work on the bridge, however, hasn’t started and it likely won’t be completed until 2019.

  • Sen. Young 'officially undecided' on GOP Senate health bill
    “I am officially undecided. I’m still reviewing the package. I’ve been in contact with the governor. We’re having conversations with with him and his folks. I’ve been in contact with our insurance commissioners, state actuaries. We’re trying to get a sense now that text is available. We’re in touch with health care providers, patient groups. I’m just trying to make the most informed decision I can. I know this: Doing nothing is not an option. We’ve got 70 million Americans who live in geography where there is no choice.” - U.S. Sen. Todd Young after Howey Politics Indiana asked if he was a certain yes vote on the Senate Republican health care bill. HPI asked, is there any scenario where you would vote against it? Young responded, “Yes. Absolutely. After studying it if I don’t think it’s right for Hoosiers, then yes, certainly. I’m very open minded." Read the entire HPI Interview with Sen. Young in the next weekly edition on Tuesday.

  • President Trump and bovine scatalogy
    Here in Indiana, when someone talks big, says unreliable things they can’t back up, Hoosiers call that person, pardon our language, a “bullshitter.” Or as Sheriff Joe Squadrito might put it, a purveyor of “bovine scatalogy.” Well, with President Trump’s claim that he has no audio files of his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey made via Twitter on Thursday, when last month he suggested he did, our assessment is that our president is a BSer. And because he has told hundreds of lies since taking the oath of office, do we believe him this time? This is a dangerous dynamic, because at some point in his presidency, Donald Trump is going to face a crisis where he is going to have to level with the American people and we are going to have to decide whether he is being truthful. What we have in President Trump is someone who is a serial liar and his chaotic administration runs on fantasy, half truths and alternative facts. We want to believe our presidents, but this one is in a realm all his own. - Brian A. Howey, publisher
