Re: “This is your Indiana Fever team, kneeling together during the National Anthem

You see those 30 people in the stands? They will gone after this. I used to be a front row season ticket holder. Never again. It's time for this franchise to start looking for a new city to move to.

Re: “This is your Indiana Fever team, kneeling together during the National Anthem

BLM is simply a communist cover organization whose demands are the same as those of other leftists/progressive movements over time. They simply put a color to it.

There are plenty of communist countries that these female ball players can go to try to get paid for their abilities. They should be encouraged to seek those positions. I am sure the Chinese would welcome with open arms these players. They love basketball so Colin Kaepernick might need to find a different landing spot. Perhaps Venezuela would like him to resume his baseball career?

Kim Jong-un loves basketball and N Korea would be a fine spot for these players to end up. They would never have to play a night game because they can't afford the electricity to light the court but that doesn't matter. Everyone is equal in N. Korea.

There are few things that make me proud to be from Indiana. This is one of them.

Re: “This is your Indiana Fever team, kneeling together during the National Anthem

.....And then they lost. Lol!!! Maybe they should stick to what they're getting paid to do. I don't need a public service announcement at a sporting event. Fever just lost a fan. Better be careful. From the looks of the stands you can't afford to lose any!

Re: “Big changes for Indy Pride

I hope to see a braude representation of our community on the board. I have seen way to much waist in the years on a director and board members. So let's see to it the goal is to promote a greater acceptance of the LGBT family and gathering of families that show are love for each other and city. In the past we was asked to help build good communities,support government canadets,but stay in closets. Thirty years of hiding is enough for any one. I hope you all well and am very glad we finally made it to the cannel. As part of the most positive group in Indy it is time we are allowed into the park we helped make.

Re: “Mike Pence refuses to call David Duke deplorable

Doesn't the "Honorable?" Mike Pence refer to Secretary Clinton at the Republican Pep-Rallies as "Crooked Hiliary"? Isn't that name calling. I believe I just saw him do that recently on a local news cast here in Indy during their report on the Trump campaign.

Re: “Letter: Let's preserve the old growth forest at Crown Hill

Crown Hill is some the prettiest land in the city. Our veterans deserve a place to peacefully rest.
But please please do not cut down the North Woods. Just as we can never replace those lost defending our country. We can never replace these vast hardwood forests.
I ask all of to contact your Senators, Congressional representatives, and local public officals. Urge them to reconsider the location inside Crown Hill for the veterans final resting place.

Re: “Ask Renee: Recycling & repurposing past awards

Check with your local elementary school. Many will re-use old trophies for student games. Ours didn't care what the trophy had on the top (horses, sewing machines, swimmer...)

Re: “The overwhelming irony of natural destruction in the name of veterans

Maybe they should talk to veterans who will not be able to afford their own burials, unlike the author who is clearly financially secure. Even in the death, officers have the choice not to consort with the enlisted because they can afford it. #NoWarButClassWar - Deanna Erickson USARMY 2003-2006 SPC <---- That means I worked for a living.

Re: “Ask Renee: Saving Indianapolis' 300-year-old forest

I love the idea of protecting old growth forests in Indiana, but is this picture just a grove of trees and not the actual old growth in question? If this is 'pre-settlement' forest, why are the trees apparently planted in rows? Just wondering what's really going on...

Re: “Ask Renee: Saving Indianapolis' 300-year-old forest

I love the advances my home town has made over the last several years. It has become a vibrant, exciting place to live. Its history, however, hasn't always been so kind. Too many historic buildings were not preserved and cannot now be replaced. The idea of ripping out an old growth swath of land is abominable. Once done, it cannot be restored.

Re: “Cannabis and Indiana's opportunity for compassionate care

Cbd only is not enough for most patients. THC and cbd work together to provide balance. Education is key here. She started out as pushing for full legalization and has since backed off to cbd only for some not all. While I applaud her efforts she has taken baby stepping to an extreme level with this stance and needs to remember it was mj convictions and discrimination and tax waste that brought her into this fight and cbd oil is obtainable at health food stores. Just isn't enough. I hope she will take stronger stances in the future and not continue backsliding.

Re: “Ask Renee: What do you do with really, really, really old shoes?

Most of my old shoes are used for grass cutting or working in the garden. As for old linens, here is a funny story. Back when I was on the Checker Hockey fan club , we used them to make banners. The sheets came from a local funeral home.

Re: “Ask Renee: What do you do with really, really, really old shoes?

Ack! This may be good for the local environment but it's not good for the countries where are our castoffs are sent. Unless you know that the donation center won't turn around and sell what they don't use, best to figure out a way to use it ourselves (rags, stuffing for a dog bed, tied into rag rugs, etc.) than to donate to a place where they're unlikely to be used and instead baled and sent elsewhere.

Re: “10 things to do this weekend

You do know that Indiana had 2 presidents, right? You're forgetting William Henry Harrison, our 9th President. Head over to the IndyFringe Festival and learn something about him in Harrison! ;-)

Re: “Indiana‚Äôs cities blocked from passing firearm ordinances for public safety

Allow me to clarify a few errors and outright false statements in the article above. From the start the author reveals himself to be distinctly anti-gun and either misinformed or dishonest. Let me quote- "Assault weapons empower individuals who are driven by hate. An individual with a concealed carry permit in Indiana may openly carry weapons of mass destruction and high capacity magazines on our streets. To make matters worse, some of these weapons can fire M855 rounds which are legal to purchase, are armor piercing and can penetrate Kevlar vests worn by our police and other law enforcement agencies. "
The first sentence should simply read "Weapons empower individuals." I very much prefer to be an individual with a weapon if I am faced with a group of individuals bent on harming me (or even a single individual especially if he is larger and younger than I). To make this sentence in the opening statement of this article is to try and define weapons as being something only for haters. Nothing is further from the truth. I hate no one. I carry a weapon.
Secondly. Indiana does not have carry conceal permits. We issue "license to carry handgun" it does not specify open or concealed and applies ONLY to pistols. The right to openly carry a long gun is in no way affected by this type of license. There is NO provision to carry weapons of mass destruction. Nuclear bombs, Chemical weapons and biological weapons are quite strictly prohibited (and are what WMD is a reference to).
Thirdly, M855 rounds are NOT considered to be armor piercing by the ATF. They simply don't meet the qualifications. Will they go through a Kevlar vest? In many situations, they could. So can the 30-30 round from my lever action "western" riffle. So can a .22 from any plinking riffle given the right circumstances.
Lastly, as a law enforcement officer, I have absolutely no problem with people owning any of these things. I have been sitting in my patrol car and had members of the public walk up to me clearly openly carrying firearms. I have nearly no worry about them. They have no intent to do me harm. I worry about the person who is sneaking around looking to shoot a cop and they really don't care what laws you enact.
Sincerely, Kevin J. Greenlee Deputy Sheriff
