    Four members of one family were killed in Indianapolis around 4:00 AM on January 24th. The victims include Kezzie Childs, 42, Raymond Childs Jr, 42, Elijah Childs, 18, and Rita Childs, 13. Kiara Hawkins, 19, and her unborn baby boy were also killed. Another teenage boy was found seriously wounded nearby. On Facebook, Hawkins says she was due to give birth on February 1st. Hawkins seems to insinuate that Elijah Childs is the father of her baby, though this is unclear. On the morning of January 25th, police announced that they apprehended a 17 year old, but they could not...

    Incoming Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has suggested taxing Americans for the number of miles they drive, a policy he endorsed as a Democratic presidential candidate. The Biden Administration is actively searching for ways to fund its ambitious $1 trillion infrastructure plan. Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., acknowledged "privacy concerns" related to implementing a vehicle miles traveled (VMT) system but said it should be considered as a potential replacement for the gas tax.

    When President Joe Biden announced former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg as his pick for Transportation Secretary, many scratched their heads. Why would he tap someone who oversaw a small budget, in a small town, in the midwest for such a roll? That puzzle is finally coming together. It turns out that Biden favors Buttigieg's transportation views, specifically the idea that America should move away from the gas tax and instead opt into a tax based on the number of miles a person travels. It would be a new way to provide cash for the Highway Trust Fund, which...

Philip Rivers, 39, recently noted he'd consider retirement but was also open to returning to the Indianapolis Colts for a second year, if they'd have him. Just over one week after being eliminated from the playoffs at the hands of the Buffalo Bills in an AFC wild-card game, Rivers is instead going to hang up his cleats -- he told The San Diego Union-Tribune -- ending...

    I had known this mid-size metropolis since the seventies when I lived here as a medical student, attending the Indiana University School of Medicine. Then, Indianapolis was referred to as India-no-place or Naptown. But Indianapolis has come a long way since then, attracting professional sports teams, stadiums, and major corporations. There are cultural and art districts, comedy clubs, and trendy, upscale neighborhoods. It has an array of tech-schools and universities, gondola rides along its canal, distilleries, symphony halls, theaters, ethnic restaurants, an excellent zoo, and several museums including the largest children’s museum in the world. My children and I have...

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced Sunday his support for efforts to challenge the certification by Congress of the electoral college votes on January 6. McCarthy’s remarks came during a discussion with the Hill, in which he stated a “debate” on the issue is needed. “I think it’s right that we have the debate,” McCarthy said. “I mean, you see now that senators are going to object, the House is going to object — how else do we have a way to change the election problems?” Several other members of Congress have previously announced they will object to the certification...

    A black physician in Indianapolis has died with Covid-19 weeks after she accused a doctor of denying her proper medical care because of her race. In a video from her bed at Indiana University Hospital North, Susan Moore said she had to "beg" for treatment. Offering its condolences, the hospital said it took accusations of discrimination very seriously but could not comment on specific patients. Black people are at greater risk from Covid than white people, studies show. Dr Moore, 52, passed away at another local hospital on Sunday. In her 4 December post on Facebook, she described how her...

    The U.S. Supreme Court declined Monday to take up an Indiana case seeking to reverse a lower court’s ruling that allows both members of same-sex couples in the state to be listed as parents on the birth certificates of their children. The high court turned aside without comment a petition that Indiana’s attorney general, Curtis Hill, filed with the court last month. Hill had argued for the justices to reverse a January decision by the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals that affirmed a ruling by Indiana’s federal southern district court that said Indiana laws limiting who can be called...

    Marion County kids can come back to school starting Jan. 4, two weeks earlier than originally anticipated. Dr. Virginia Caine, Marion County’s public health director, amended Thursday an earlier public health order that closed schools for in-person instruction after the Thanksgiving holiday. The original order called on schools to remain closed and to deliver instruction remotely until Jan. 18. Caine said that new data and changes in guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention prompted the change.

    Dec. 11 (UPI) -- The U.S. government on Friday plans to execute a man convicted of killing his 2-year-old daughter nearly two decades ago. Alfred Bourgeois, 55, is set to receive lethal injection at the U.S. Penitentiary in Terre Haute, Ind. He's awaiting a Supreme Court decision on his request for a stay. His attorneys said Bourgeois' execution would be unconstitutional because he is intellectually disabled and can't understand his punishment. They submitted evidence of IQ test scores of 70 and 75, as well as assessments by experts. The Eighth Amendment bans executing people with such impairments as cruel and...

Indiana joins 16 other states on the brief: Missouri, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah and West...

    November 28, 2020 (LifeSiteNews.com) — Eight lesbian couples who used sperm donors to have children are fighting the state of Indiana to have both partners be recognized as “parents” on birth certificates. Now, the U.S. Supreme Court might be positioning itself to hear the Indiana concerning these couples. According to SCOTUSblog, the pending petition Box v. Henderson asks, “Whether a state, consistent with the 14th Amendment due process and equal protection clauses, may adopt a biology-based birth-certificate system that includes a rebuttable presumption that a birth mother’s husband — but not wife — is the child’s biological parent.” Typically, when...

    INDIANAPOLIS – Gov. Eric Holcomb issued a new executive order Friday that empowers state and local government to issue warnings and possibly shut down businesses that don't comply with restrictions. The new order goes into effect Sunday morning through Dec. 12, and also generally imposes more limits on counties with the highest spread. But some rules apply statewide. Those include requiring businesses to post signs notifying that face coverings must be worn inside and that “businesses shall require employees to wear face coverings.” It also says “businesses should only admit those customers, clients, vendors and visitors who wear face coverings.”...

    House Republicans may not have taken back control of the lower chamber, but GOP lawmakers say they see the party's sizable gains as a promising sign they can take back the House in 2022. Political handicappers, in the days leading up to Nov. 3, projected GOP losses of between five and 20 seats, and the ultimate results left some within the GOP stunned by the unexpected success and with how the party significantly broadened the conference’s diversity and increased the number of female members. “Now I've heard for months from the pollsters in the media about how Republicans were going...
