  • The Indiana General Assembly has reached the halfway point of the 2016 legislative session. It has been an extremely busy and productive first half with many agenda items passing the Senate, including Senate Enrolled Act 200 being signed into law by Gov. Pence.

  • Snoring can certainly be annoying, but can be normal. I want to focus this week on a harmful condition that can be associated with snoring – sleep apnea.

    Sleep apnea is a condition where people have pauses in their breathing while sleeping. Most people have pauses to some degree, but people with sleep apnea have much longer pauses, sometimes up to 30 seconds. These long pauses cause the level of oxygen in the blood to drop and carbon dioxide to rise. These changes can be very hard on the body, especially the heart and lungs.

  • Have you ever wanted to talk with a World War 2 veteran? Maybe to find out what it was like back then.

    There aren’t many living after a war seventy years ago.

  • Although the new book, “The Next America,” written by Paul Taylor and the Pew Research Center,” offer many staggering statistics based on demographic research of the Millennials, I would like to mention only one for now: “Today’s Millennials -- well-educated, tech savvy, underemployed twenty-somethings -- are at risk of becoming the first generation in American history to have a lower standard of living than their parents.”

  • A hundred or so years ago I was a cub reporter working for Marlis Gaildene Hamilton and learning more about news than a guy who started out in the toy department (known as sports) should. Back in those days, sports writers didn’t often make the jump to news. I guess the powers that be figured if we had trouble dealing with grouchy coaches we’d never make it with even grumpier politicians.
