  • Makeover

    It's easy to be cynical about the furor created this month when Extreme Makeover: Home Edition came to town.
  • One felon's trash...

    Behind the chain-link fence at the Drug Seizure Showroom stands a phalanx of 52-inch TVs, DVD players, Xboxes and even a set of fishing poles for the idle methmaker or moonshiner.
  • Honoring the fallen

    Those who know me will understand that I am not a "Star-Spangled Banner" kind of guy. My patriotism runs more toward the sentiments of Woody Guthrie than those of Francis Scott Key.
  • Letters to the Editor

    Bravo to Bob Burtman for another outstanding piece in the Indy ("Duke and Durham: The Blue Devil is in the details," Dec. 6). If Duke discussed the details of its Central Campus rezoning with the community back in the spring, we wouldn't be in the middle of this rezoning drama now. Instead, Duke submitted a mostly blank development plan—ignoring three years of input from the community.
