    In a recent House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee hearing, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg proclaimed “the more pain we are all experiencing from the high price of gas, ​the more benefit there is for those who can access electric vehicles.” That evoked a response from Florida Rep. Carlos Gimenez. “So you’re saying the more pain we have, the more benefit we’re going to get?” the Florida Rep. wondered. “Of course — no,” said Buttigieg with a laugh. “I think that’s what I heard you say,” countered Gimenez, who later tweeted “the more pain Americans felt, the better for electric vehicles. It’s...

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana on Friday became the first state in the nation to approve abortion restrictions since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, as the Republican governor quickly signed a near-total ban on the procedure shortly after lawmakers approved it.The ban, which takes effect Sept. 15, includes some exceptions. Abortions would be permitted in cases of rape and incest, before 10-weeks post-fertilization; to protect the life and physical health of the mother; and if a fetus is diagnosed with a lethal anomaly. Victims of rape and incest would not be required to sign a notarized affidavit attesting...

    INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says a 16-year-old was shot and killed in self-defense in an “apparent robbery” attempt on the far east side. Just before 4:30 a.m., IMPD got a report of a person shot on Tapp Drive near Cumberland. The homeowner’s daughter and her boyfriend claim they were sitting in their car when at least two suspects yanked open the car door and tried to rob them at gunpoint. Those victims didn’t want to go on camera, but say the whole scary situation lasted just a few seconds. Police found a male who was declared dead...

    ndiana's legislature became the first in the nation on Friday to pass new legislation restricting access to abortions since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

The measure now goes to Republican Governor Eric Holcomb, who has not indicated whether he will sign it. The ban includes limited exceptions, including in cases of rape and incest, and to protect the life and physical health of the mother. The exceptions...

    A raid of an (Logansport) Indiana specialty car shop by San Mateo County (California) Sheriff’s Office deputies is facing scrutiny over allegations Sheriff Carlos Bolanos did so as a favor to a friend. The issue stems from an alleged payment dispute between Mark Racop, the owner of Fiberglass Freaks, which makes classic 1966 Batmobile cars, and (San Francisco) Bay Area real estate broker Sam Anagnostou, who ordered one in 2017. According to Racop, a missed 2019 payment from Anagnostou and a lack of contact over nine months about the payment bumped Anagnostou to the end of the line for a...
