    Bob Knight, one of the most legendary college basketball coaches of all time, died Wednesday at the age of 83. Knight was a three-time national champion and made five Final Fours, all during his 29-season tenure at Indiana. Knight's first head coaching job was with Army in 1965; he took the Hoosiers job in 1971, where he stayed until 2000. He then coached Texas Tech from 2001-2008. "It is with heavy hearts that we share that Coach Bob Knight passed away at his home in Bloomington surrounded by his family," his website said. "We are grateful for all the thoughts...

    Indiana Democrat Joe Donnelly lost his Senate seat on Tuesday in a hard-fought race against Republican businessman Mike Braun. Donnelly, who took the seat in 2012, lost the first Democratic Senate seat of the midterm election in a state President Trump won by 19 points in 2016. Braun cast himself as an outsider and a staunch supporter of Trump, while claiming Donnelly was out of line with Indiana values by supporting abortion rights and other issues.

    It looks like Donald Trump got what he wanted — former Indiana Hoosiers coach Bobby Knight will be hitting the road with him on Wednesday. Trump in recent days has been talking up the idea that the famously hot-headed coach would back him, saying on Saturday that his endorsement would be a big get. “Tough, strong, smart. I would like to get that for Indiana, I’ll tell you what. To me, that would be a great endorsement," he said over the weekend, adding on Monday in Rhode Island that he hoped to win his support. Meanwhile, Knight, who is known...

    He has served six terms in the Senate and won his last race with 87 percent of the vote, but that hasn’t prevented Indiana Sen. Richard G. Lugar from emerging as perhaps the most vulnerable Republican senator of the 2012 election cycle. And the big danger is coming from Mr. Lugar’s right flank...

    COURT IGNORES U.S. CONSTITUTION AND 800 YEARS OF COMMON LAW The Indiana Supreme Court has ruled that Hoosiers do not have the right to resist unlawful entry of their homes by police. Think about it for a moment; the court overruled nearly 800 years of common law, dating back to the Magna Carta of 1215 – and the U.S. Constitution as well. Justice Steven David, writing for the court: If a police officer wants to enter a home for any reason or no reason at all, a homeowner has no right to stop the officer’s entry. “We believe a right...

    It's an ornate office in Indiana's beautifully maintained mid-19th-century Capitol, but the 49th governor of Indiana, Mitch Daniels, is not dressed to match the setting. He's just returned from spending the night in Princeton, Ind., staying at a constituent's house -- as he often does around the state -- and he's dressed in a work shirt and jeans. I've known Mitch Daniels since he was a staffer for Sen. Richard Lugar in the 1980s, and for years he struck me as one of the least likely candidates for public office. He's got strong, mostly conservative convictions; he doesn't suffer fools...

    TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Concerned about Second Amendment rights, folks bought guns and ammunition in record numbers after President Barack Obama's election. "This is a right that a lot of politicians, a lot of lawmakers want to take away," NRA spokesperson Rachel Parsons said. "They want to curb the rights of law abiding people under a notion that it's going to reduce crime." Now the Bloomington Herald-Times newspaper published a database of Indiana gun permit holders, searchable by which streets and cities they live.

    The collegians and twenty-something volunteers who sit in Barack Obama’s downtown Indianapolis headquarters wear “We finally matter” t-shirts, noting that the “Obama Youth” will speak loudly in the Hoosier State on May 6. But all six million citizens of Indiana — at least Democrats — should lay claim to that slogan, since Indiana, often too late in the electoral season to affect the nomination, will matter. Like the colors of the state’s largest university, Indiana is a Red State. Hoosiers have supported the Republican nominee for president ten consecutive times and in 16 of the past 17 General Elections going...

    Beltway vs. the John Deere voter TRIBUNE-REVIEW by salena zito INDIANAPOLIS -- Joe Andrew, a Democratic National Committee chair for five minutes, lives and operates out of Washington, D.C. But when it comes to giving news conferences about the presidential campaign, his podium is in Indianapolis. That is where Andrew went from Beltway boy to Hoosier to make his "big" announcement on changing sides from Sen. Hillary Clinton to Sen. Barack Obama. And the whole word gasped. Well, not really the whole world. In all honesty, the collective gasp was heard from within the Beltway, that patch of geography where...

Townsend, the daughter of Robert F. Kennedy and a former Maryland lieutenant governor, will appear with the Clintons at Dyngus Day and Solidarity Day events in South Bend. Townsend lost the gubernatorial election in Maryland five years ago.

    Macquarie to buy newspaper chain; critics fear it's to silence Trans-Texas Corridor opponents. One of the foreign firms leasing the Indiana Toll Road is drawing suspicion from some Texans after announcing plans to acquire a chain of small newspapers there. Australia-based Macquarie Media Group last week said it will pay $80 million for American Consolidated Media, which publishes 40 community newspapers and shopping publications serving nine communities in Texas and Oklahoma. Macquarie's sister company, Macquarie Infrastructure Group, last year joined with the Spanish conglomerate Cintra to lease the Indiana Toll Road for the next 75 years. Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels...
  • Indiana begins issuing lifetime gun permits

    INDIANAPOLIS A new state law has gone into effect allowing Indiana handgun owners to get lifetime licenses. Gun owners now have the option to get lifetime permits instead of the current four-year licenses to carry the weapons. About 287-thousand people in Indiana have gun permits, which cost 25 dollars for four years. Those who want lifetime licenses when their current permits expire will have to pay 100 dollars; those getting a license for the first time will be charged 125 dollars. Applicants will still have to pass criminal background checks and allow their fingerprints to remain on file with police....

    ..."Taxman Mitch" Posted: February 10, 2006 1:00 a.m. Eastern In the 2004 elections, Republicans in Indiana were excited about their candidate for Governor, Mitch Daniels. As President Bush’s budget director, Daniels had made a name for himself in the Bush Administration and won acclaim from some in the news media, such as when Time Magazine named him their “Person of the Week.” Daniels had moved from being a DC power-player to the Republican Party’s best hope to retake the Indiana Governor’s office from the Democrats, who had held the seat for 16 years. Indiana Republicans affectionately referred to him as...

    Who next for 2008? One prospect on virtually every list in speculation by the news media and by Democratic leaders is Sen. Evan Bayh of Indiana. As usual, Indiana was one of the first states declared on election night to be colored red, the color now used on the maps to designate that a state has gone Republican. Heck, Indiana could have been declared for President Bush long before the first ballots were marked. In fact, both Kerry and Bush strategists long ago knew that Indiana would landslide for the president. Neither side bothered to bring their campaign to the...

    Indiana Democrats like to joke that a good presidential year is when Indiana isn't the first state in the GOP column on election night. Hoosiers haven't voted for a Democrat for president since 1964 and have done so only three times since 1932. While nearby states like Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and Iowa are being inundated with candidate appearances, political ads and get-out-the-vote canvassers because the presidential race is expected to be close there, all is quiet in Indiana.

    SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Former Notre Dame basketball player Danielle Green lost her left hand during an attack in Iraq (news - web sites) while serving in the Army. Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw said she got a call from a friend of Green's on Wednesday saying Green had been injured. "It was just a shock to hear she had been injured because she had said that her job was going to keep her on the sidelines," McGraw said. The athletic department at Chicago State, where Green was an assistant women's coach in 2002, said Thursday she lost her hand...
