... once again to the Clark County Government website.

... to the News and Tribune for providing space for Barbara Anderson to raise awareness, and so eloquently educate us, about homelessness in our communities.
Ms. Anderson has served this population for nearly 30 years and knows what she’s talking about. We need to thank her and pay attention. Even though we can’t do everything to end homelessness, we must do what we can. I hope she will continue to remind us how we can help.

HOWEY: Drs. Bucshon, Brown and the Obamacare era
Larry Bucshon is a heart surgeon, a Republican and a congressman. He has had employees who have reached lifetime insurance caps and ended up on Medicaid. He has seen thousands of poor Hoosiers on Medicaid denied access to health care. He paid about $40,000 a year in medical malpractice insurance, a figure that is much lower than in most states. And he is a vociferous critic of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, and has consistently urged its repeal.
