Re: “Freedom to Hunt? You've got to be kidding!

Can anyone tell me why we need the government to tell us it's okay to do what humans have done for as long as there have been humans? Wake up people. This is just another case of the government grabbing control of another aspect of your natural rights.

Re: “Freedom to Hunt? You've got to be kidding!

I would like the folks who are for this ammendment to show me any state where citizens no longer have the right to hunt and fish. All the hunting and fishing does have some restrictions on hunting season and number of animals and species one can hunt. And that restriction does make sense to me because sometimes there are animals that are endangered and I don't believe we'd want to hunt them to extinction.

Re: “Freedom to Hunt? You've got to be kidding!

There is currently no right to hunt or fish. Instead, we are granted the legal privilege. And this privilege is under attack in most states by PETA and like-minded organizations. All it takes is enough out-of-state money to influence a congressman, or one sympathetic judge, and this privilege will disappear.

Especially since opponents appear to believe (or at least pretend to) that such a right already exists, with no problems resulting, why not go ahead and make it official? Where is the real downside, except from the perspective of those opposed to hunting and fishing, generally?

Re: “Freedom to Hunt? You've got to be kidding!

Carol, Where is the right established? So because the NRA backs it it is bad? How does this put human lives in jeopardy. I hear you talking but you give no proof. I think You are one of the reasons we need this signed into law. The article claims that there is no one plotting to stop hunting...PETA and groups like it are plotting every day to stop hunting and I will go out on a limb, since you mention creating animal laws...that you belong to one of those groups...I say we vote yes.

Re: “Freedom to Hunt? You've got to be kidding!

Please vote no to this amendment to the constitution. The right to hunt and fish is already established and this NRA written and backed amendment will put human and animal lives in jeopardy in the future. It would make protections and laws for animals and property owners very difficult to pass forever. Please vote NO! If you vote a straight ticket you are not giv n the opportunity to vote on this issue. Vote individually and then you are given this question. Makes no sense but that's the way it is.

Re: “Clinton, or else

Unless you live in some swing state instead of Indiana now, it doesn't matter who you vote for, Trump is Indiana's kind of guy. And the religious fundamentalists are might vote for him because of Pence. So, Trump/Pence will get all the Electoral votes anyhow, vote for whoever you like, or don't vote. All the gubernatorial candidates are worthless, as are both the candidates for US Senate, and Republicans have the state so heavily gerrymandered that both houses of the state legislature are going to remain supermajority Republican, and no Republican Congressman is in danger. By a bottle of booze on Monday and just drink on Tuesday instead of voting, it will do you more good.

Is this the same David Hoppe who used to be in charge of movies and videos at the Michigan City Public Library?

Re: “Trump’s got their tongue: Journalism’s new irrelevance

So, if Nuvo is the "Alternative Voice" then how can it be so one sided in the political arena like all the other mainstream left leaning outlets?

Re: “The trouble with beautiful places

David, you're right on the mark regarding this controversial issue and hit the nail on the head with actions we all must take! Might I add in addition the Long Beach IN Beach Lovers Rights group has joined up with Save the Dunes and the Great Lake Alliance to defend everyone's right to access Lake Michigan in Indiana up to the average high water mark. Also the Long Beach Community Alliance is the group which recruited candidates and swept the Town Council election. All of these groups have Facebook pages and some websites. Thank you for writing about this most important challenge!

Re: “The trouble with beautiful places

Fight the bullies with all you have. Go on social media, tweet, do whatever it takes to bring attention to the elite crowd that could care less about preserving anything.

Re: “This column is not about Mike Pence

I will go vote against Pence, no matter who runs against him, or will write in Judy O'Bannon if noone does, but it pains me to vote for Gregg. The Democratic Party in this state doesn't have any ideas, and merely runs against whatever the Republicans want. For example, the Democrats, including John Gregg, were completely against equal marriage rights until they saw it as something they could use against the Republicans. And they are doing the same with gay non-discrimination issues and other things. Just like with the very likely election of Donald Trump as President, part of the blame for the right-wing extremists we have running Indiana is that the Democratic Party puts up pretty uninspiring candidates.

Re: “This column is not about Mike Pence

Party leadership is the problem; they brought us baby Bayh and other DINOs. Gregg is in the same mold, as a former member of ALEC.

Re: “This column is not about Mike Pence

They have not won rural bumpkin Indiana over with this Republican Lite, Howdy Doody strategy and they never will. I dunno what it will take to convince them of that. You would think a Republican Supermajority with a Tea Party Republican governor would get that point across.

Re: “This column is not about Mike Pence

Your analysis is accurate. It's worth noting that some who care very much about those issues have listened to the "noise" and hear much more honest sincerity.

Is Gregg our only guy? It seems like there must be others out there. He might be a little to Wilfred Brimley-esque for our millenial voters methinks...?

Re: “What Jonathan Brooks said!

So according to BS1988, dining at Milktooth a handful of times and living here for 5 years gives him/her the authority to comment on all things Indianapolis. As an Indianapolis native for 23 years (the other 3 spent in Skokie, a suburb of Chicago) I am offended when you try to distill Indy's essence with only a paltry 5 years of experience under your belt. New York owes it's current food culture to the variety of people living there and its coastal location. If New York were nestled in the heartland of America it would assuredly not be the bastion of culture it is today. Yet, the 'style' that has become synonymous with Brooklyn has been borrowed from New York's outlying rural areas. The organic aesthetics, artisan pickles, cheese and breads and craft liquors, etc. were NOT perfected in the heart of the city. They were culled from smaller, rural New England cities and possibly even the Midwest and Southeastern coast.. where people don't make pickles because they taste good with artisinal bread and cheese but because the crop surplus MUST be preserved. If you have trouble describing the identity of Indianapolis it is only because your view of the city is so myopic compared to the other major cities you've visited or lived in, where it is much easier to grasp. I have argued this with my friends in Chicago many times: "Indianapolis has plenty of culture, you just have to look harder and travel farther" to quote myself. Expand your view to places not listed in any "top 10" list and you will find more craft breweries than most major cities, a large smattering of Affineurs (cheese-agers, most of them located outside the metropolitan area), a larger population interested in Basketball than most, a city that favors cars more than bikes probably because of the rich history in manufacturing and racing (Indianapolis was once bigger than Detroit in terms of automobile manufacturing) but also because the size of the city is so much larger you could not bike from one side to the other like some East-coast cities. So if anything, Brooklyn's food scene was borrowed from elsewhere, not the other way around; though I see how you could mistake that when Brooklyn is more nationally recognized. Indianapolis is not a wannabe anything.. our homely Midwestern style has been perfected over decades and remains intact. You are a wannabe Hoosier, if anything.

Re: “What Jonathan Brooks said!

As someone who has dined at Milktooth on several occasions, and been fairly impressed, I need to say something. I have lived in Indianapolis for the past 5 years, after moving from Chicago for work. I have seen tremendous growth in Indy, which is great, but also seen a certain "attitude" come with the opening of new establishments around the city. I'm sorry to inform anyone new to this, but what we see in Indianapolis as new and innovativing, has actually been done in New York, Chicago, and LA for over a decade. I've only been to Broklyn once, and that was almost 5 years ago, but I can see the comparison of Indy (Fountain Square, Mass Ave area) to Broklyn. Please point me out one restaurant in Indy where you can honestly say "this has never been done before." Sure places like Milktooth, Bluebeard, Black Market, Linertine, Union 50, Vida etc are good, but none of them have set a new bar. Indy has always tried to keep up with the pace of Chicago, and make comparisons about how they (Indy) are better. I didn't realize there was a competition. I've seen it for years in articles around Indianapolis. They are two completely different worlds. Indy charges $1200 for a studio apartment (Nuvo had a article about that a few weeks ago) but yet has a mall (circle center) closing 25% of its stores. Who's does Indy think it appeals to? Just because people are wearing flannel, beards, oversized bold framed glasses, doesn't mean we also need to follow that trend. As someone who works at a bar on Mass Ave I have seen the clientele completely change in the past few years. There is no sense of "self" in Indy. Only a replica of what has been done for years. Brooks is a great chef, and its great to have places like Milktooth, but let's just take a breath and slow down. We are Indianapolis. Maybe in 10 years when all these trendy apartments downtown drop their rent and actually fill up, we fix circle center mall, finally finish all the never ending construction around indy, actually maybe clean up the violence that haunts Indy (I know not as much as Chicago). Then we can create our own sense of self. Right now we are just another stereotypical hipster wannabe.

Re: “Bernie Sanders: It’s about time

I'd like to see a President Sanders, wheels off if necessary. However, if it doesn't happen we can thank him for getting the focus right. Clinton is talking about things she would most likely ignore. and maybe,she will have to keep her Sanders-prompted promises.
