I supported many of Gov. Daniels policies and thought a number of his education ideas were in the long-term best interest of Hoosier schools, however there is no way I could support the outright attempt of the governor to censor a work considered by most historians as a major work on American history. I believe that history should include a variety of viewpoints and one should know the full history of the United States — the great and the warts. Hopefully individual teachers are responsible and professional, and expose students to the panorama of American history.
Thanks for a great 4-H fair week
What a great 4-H fair! For those of us working the booths in the merchant’s building, the weather was so much kinder than last year when we nearly all burst into flames! I want to thank the 4-H for having such a well-planned event again this year. I want to thank everyone for dropping by the booth to say hello and show your support for the Democratic Party and your willingness to get involved in the coming campaigns and elections. It’s so easy to make a difference in your community.
Also, congratulations to Brad Angle who had the winning ticket for the $100 drawing!
Lastly to those sturdy souls who manned the booth with me every night. I couldn’t have done it without you. Our Democratic Party was well represented by Randy Rozzi, Mike Fincher, Matt Meagher, Jim Musselman, Scott Peattie, Ted Shriver, Bonnie Richter, Deborah Ulerick, Tim Banter Sr. and the team from USW Local 4863 led by Becky Hanawalt.
We hope to see everyone again real soon.

Can Pyrolyzer really prove its claims?
I wrote earlier about the trash-to-energy proposal from Pyrolyzer meant to save our local utilities, but I still have concerns. Proponents seem to be offering a common response, basically, that it will work because the Pyrolyzer and consultants say so. They also claim that no matter any other factors, this will "save jobs." I've been an advocate for LMU since it is locally run. It was one of the positives when I moved here years ago. I don't want to see LMU jobs lost. But is Pyrolyzer the only way?
