Last year Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill was accused of sexual misconduct. Four women said he groped and harassed them at an end-of-session party. When the allegations came to light, Hill publicly denied them and refused to resign.

Last week the state held a series of disciplinary hearings, where Hill is defending his law license. Could it mean the end of Hill’s legal career? Today on All IN, reporters Brandon Smith of Indiana Public Broadcasting and Niki Kelly of the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette join us to break down the whole story.

It is not even 8:30 in the morning when she has stormed upstairs and I have slammed a door and bellowed that our fun plans for the day are cancelled.  I sit in the bathroom where I am hiding from her, fuming.  I am too mad to pray. I’m too mad to write.  I’m too mad to think in any kind of a reasonable straight line.

In the last week the fall colors have really popped around Michiana. Hopefully, more beautiful and vibrant fall colors are to come. This image comes from Ashley Henderson of South Bend. It was taken last fall in early November on Worster Lake during an early morning kayak session at Potato Creek State Park.

As the nation gears up for the 2020 election, Democrats are promising bold new changes to the American health care system. One idea championed by many on the progressive left is “Medicare for All,” or a single-payer system, which would do away with private health insurance for most forms of care. Advocates of this plan promise that nationalizing health insurance will cut costs by reducing overhead and promote overall health by giving all Americans access to preventive health care.
