  • 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.

  • Indiana Senate resurrects appointed school chief bill
    “Governors and other state leaders of both major political parties have publicly supported the concept of an appointed Superintendent of Public Instruction for decades. I believe now is the time to make it happen. The changes amended into the bill today will help take politics out of education and ensure Indiana continues to have an education leader with experience, demonstrated leadership skills, and expertise in the field of education.” - Indiana Senate President David Long, after the Senate Rules Committee significantly amended version of House Bill 1005, which would provide for a governor-appointed secretary of education starting in 2025. The bill would require residency for two years, an advanced degree and is licensed or employed as a teacher, principal or superintendent at the time of taking office. Senate Minority Leader Tim Lanane criticized the move, saying, “Today the Republican supermajority in the Senate used their unchecked power to resurrect a measure that would effectively disenfranchise Hoosier voters in choosing their education leader. Over half of our state budget is dedicated to K-12 education, and Hoosiers should have their voices heard at the ballot box when it comes to education policy in the state of Indiana.”

  • A question for Gov. Holcomb: Who's the king of rock n' roll?
    After Howey Politics Indiana conducted a brief interview with Gov. Eric Holcomb earlier this week, we followed up with this probing question for a governor who loves rock n’ roll: Who’s the King of Rock n’ roll: Elvis Presley or Chuck Berry? Holcomb responded, “That’s a trick question. It’s not an ‘either-or’ answer. It’s ‘and.’ The world was big enough for two kings who both owned every room they ever performed in!” Great answer, Gov! - Brian A. Howey, publisher
