Italy Trip – Part VI: Back to Rome and on to Berlin

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 00:29:14 +0000

Day 7: Back to Rome, Pantheon, and Capitoline Museum After three nights in Florence, it was time to return to Rome where we would spend another night before catching a plane out of Italy. We started the day with breakfast at the same cafe on the Duomo plaza. I’m a big fan of a simple […]

Class War By Proxy

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 13:31:51 +0000

One of my favorite news sites is, a comedy site. I don’t know if it’s the old thing about the jester being able to speak truth to power or the lack of a particular axe to grind that makes me find it more informative than a lot of straight news and commentary places. A […]

Judge Busch to resign from Tippecanoe Circuit Court at the end of the year

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 13:20:30 +0000

Dave Bangert, writing for the Lafayette Journal & Courier, has an article on Judge Tom Busch’s announcement that he is going to be retiring as judge for the Circuit Court of Tippecanoe County. I learned a lot of what I know about practicing law from Tom. He was a partner with the firm when I […]

Father’s Day

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 16:12:33 +0000

Today on Facebook, I made a post that said, “it’s Father’s Day, and I enjoy being a Dad.” Upon further reflection, “enjoy” doesn’t quite capture it. I do enjoy being a Dad most of the time. Occasionally not. But the significance of being a Dad for me is bigger than whether I enjoy it. It’s […]

Italy Trip – Part V: Gallery dell’Accademia, Museo dell’Opera del Duomo, Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 05:00:25 +0000

Day 5: Gallery dell’Accademia I wouldn’t call this a bad day, but if I had to pick a least favorite day, this was probably it. Even so, seeing Michelangelo’s David at the Gallery dell’Accademia was not something I’ll soon forget. Once again, this is a work of art that is recognized as among the best […]

Italy Trip – Part IV: Travel to Florence, Boboli Gardens

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 23:14:15 +0000

After three nights in the Rome apartment, we were ready to head to Florence. First we had to clean up the apartment and get breakfast. Dealing with trash is apparently a bit of an ordeal in Rome. We didn’t have much of it, but we had to walk it 3 or 4 blocks to a […]

Italy Trip – Part III: Castel Sant’Angelo, Spanish Steps, Villa Borghese Gardens, Piazza del Popolo

Sun, 11 Jun 2017 13:20:20 +0000

Castel Sant’Angelo We all slept in after our Colosseum tour. By the time we woke up and got moving, it was lunch time. We didn’t have any timetable that day, so it was all good. We ate lunch at a cafe (salmon pizza for me!) before heading out over to Castel Sant’Angelo which you could […]

Italy Trip Part II: The Vatican and the Colosseum

Sat, 10 Jun 2017 13:00:48 +0000

Day 2: Vatican City and the Colosseum Vatican City was a short walk from our Apartment in Trastavere, and we had plans to go to the Vatican Museums. Getting the kids moving early in the morning with the time change and the day of travel before was a bit of a chore, but we persevered. […]

State Impact Indiana on Challenge for Rural Schools with Inadequate State Funding

Fri, 09 Jun 2017 10:49:58 +0000

Claire McInerny, writing for State Impact Indiana, has a good article on challenges faced by Wabash County and City Schools due to the State’s approach to funding and the loss of students in their districts. The State takes a “money follows the student” approach to school funding which leads to problems when students move elsewhere. […]

Italy Trip – Part I: Travel to Rome

Fri, 09 Jun 2017 01:25:15 +0000

IN THE BEGINNING It began, as all great tales do, as a love story. In this case, the love of incredibly cheap airfare! The kids are 11 and 13 which is a great age for traveling: old enough to be largely self-sufficient, but young enough to still enjoy our company. We knew generally that we […]
