  • 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.

  • Speaker Ryan tabs Messer to head task force
    "Indiana has proven time and again that the best government is closest to the people it serves. Our states, cities and counties are the true engine for innovation in government. I'm excited to work on this Task Force to combat federal overreach and return power to states." - U.S. Rep. Luke Messer, who was appointed by House Speaker Paul Ryan to serve on the recently created bipartisan Task Force on Intergovernmental Affairs, which is charged with working to restore the proper balance of power between federal, state and local governments. The Task Force will partner with state and local governments to determine where the federal government has overstepped, and come up with solutions to return control to states and local entities.

  • The integrity of Director Coats
    That Dan Coats would spurn another attempt by President Trump to shut down the Russian collusion probe with his presidential campaign is not surprising. The Director of National Intelligence is known for his integrity. But Coats, along with other intelligence and White House officials, are now in untenable positions in this presidential viper’s nest. They are being asked to participate in what now appears to be an unprecedented conspiracy to thwart an investigation, with all the trappings of a developing obstruction of justice scenario. What is emerging are the markers of historic scandal that appears poised to bring down this populist presidency. And it is now ensnarling Hoosier public servants like Coats and Vice President Mike Pence. - Brian A. Howey, publisher
