I was raised in the small town of South Whitley just 25 miles west of Fort Wayne and moved to Fort Wayne almost 25 years ago. I now live in the historic West Central Neighborhood of Fort Wayne, Indiana.
I am retired and love gardening, crafts of all kinds, working on my home, and collecting books for my small library.
I have loved politics for decades and have a B.A. in Political Science and a J.D.

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is about to become a hot topic again for those on social security – regular and disability. And President Obama appears to be in support of the plan. Gird for battle if you don’t want … Continue reading
The constitutional amendment on many minds is the amendment banning same-sex marriage. Another amendment, however, is also set to drastically change our lives and environment – by enshrining protection of industrial farming in the state constitution. Republicans just can’t seem … Continue reading
