Read the story about who was named ME and see the context. In South Bend the police chief reports to the Mayor.

Read the story. And read the broader context about the mayor and South Bend police administration. I didn't conclude anything, I said only that he needs to be asked and to answer questions about this.

Read the piece. Mother reached out to him, was spurned. Then read broader context about police story he won't talk about.

Exquisitely reported & written on travails of & owner . Klepto-politicians and their corrupt pals rejoice when local journalism weakens or dies. Policing function of newspapers matters for government integrity.

Deeply disturbing story about , a Democratic presidential candidate, raises disturbing questions about callousness, racism and an apparent lynching. Mayor Pete must explain. if there’s nothing there he should be able to easily make it go away.

I did 2 1/2 books without a leave; never a complaint that I had slacked off. I used vacation/days off due for book promotion.

This is NOT teaching ABOUT religion, which I am all for, it is teaching a specific religion, Christianity or if you prefer JudeaoChristianity. That violate sour Constitution and down that road lies The American Taliban.

A newspaper has to be any things. No one wants to read a paper by only clones of me, for example. Humor, sports, recipes, fashion, etc., all have their place. And not every piece will be great, either. But overall quality is still the best in the world.

Trump spent almost $1 billion per mile to build just 1.7 miles of Mexican border fence - not a wall just a fence -- . How do you spend $1.6 billion on a short fence? Incompetence? Graft? We need Inspector General & Congressional investigations.

Bad reporting on mechanics get back pay & a raise, but not pay rate. did better, reporting avg 2017 pay, with overtime, of $117k. is only a news asst. so editors deserve most of the blame.

Let's have Bible classes in public schools, says Team Trump as it seeks a 12% cut in Dept of Ed spending. Trump & Co. ignore school shootings, discrimination, sexual assaults, but want public schools teaching Christianity. Our latest column by .
