Lawson, D-Hammond, sent a letter Tuesday to state Rep. Greg Steuerwald, R-Avon, who chairs of House Statutory Committee on Ethics and urged an investigation of the Indianapolis Republican’s conduct. She questioned whether Bosma violated House Ethics Rule 166 which states:“Every candidate for election to the House of Representatives shall campaign and if elected, shall serve with a personal commitment to integrity and dedicated public service focused on the best interest of the citizens of the state.”Lawson said in the letter that Hoosiers deserve transparent, accountable government that holds elected officials to the highest standard. That is why she said she is requesting the ethics committee to meet publicly to decide if Bosma violated House ethics rules and whether his re-election campaign acted with the best interest of the citizens of the state.Steuerwald was unavailable to comment but released a statement with the vice-chairman of the House committee, Rep. Clyde Kersey, D-Terre Haute: “We have received a copy of State Rep. Linda Lawson’s letter. We are sharing her letter with other members of the House Ethics Committee to review like any other issue that comes before us.”The Indianapolis Star reported that the former intern, Kandy Green, went public with her story about her early 1990s encounter with Bosma after her friends and family reported that they had been contacted by investigators working on behalf of the speaker. Green worked as an intern for House Democrats at the time.Bosma was unavailable for a comment.Lawson said in her letter that in order to maintain Hoosiers’ faith in state government it is important that transparency and accountability is never applied selectively. No matter the ranking of the official, they are not above the law.“I believe it is the Ethics Committee’s duty to issue a ruling,” Lawson said in the letter.FOOTNOTE: Dionte Coleman is a reporter for TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalism students.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail State Representative Calls For Ethics Investigation Of House Speaker BosmaOctober 25, 2018 By Dionte ColemanTheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS—State Rep.

The inaugural Canyon Jam at Colorado’s iconic Mishawaka Amphitheatre features several of the jam scene’s “Next Phase” of bands, such as Spafford, The Main Squeeze, Aqueous, Mungion, Organ Freeman, Cycles, Moves at Midnight, and Jus’ Sayin’. The two-day event takes place on September 8th and 9th, and is looking to be an annual affair boasting some of the jam scene’s top young talent. With the event just several weeks away, we decided to catch up with members of each band on the lineup in this new Live For Live Music interview series dubbed Road To Canyon Jam.Why The Mishawaka Amphitheatre Is One Of The Most Coveted Scenic Venues In The CountryOur first two installments of the “Road To Canyon Jam” interview series featured conversations with Cycles’ guitarist Patrick Harvey and drummer Michael Wood and drummer Rob Houk of Buffalo-based jammers Aqueous. In the latest installment, we had a conversation with Spafford bassist Jordan Fairless about what the Arizona four piece is looking forward to most on their road to Canyon Jam. Tickets for Canyon Jam are currently on-sale and can be purchased here. For event updates and additional information, join the Facebook Event page._____________________________________________________Live For Live Music: The nature of Canyon Jam centers around the art of the “jam.” What, in your opinion, are the key ingredients to make up a solid improvisation?Jordan Fairless: We’ve concocted a secret recipe for our jams over the last several years. Just like grandma’s secret recipes, ours don’t get shared too easily. We can share one key ingredient though: Thyme.L4LM: Because Canyon Jam is in its first year and given the location and the lineup, what are you most excited about for Canyon Jam?JF: None of us have ever been to the venue before and it is hailed as one of the Crown Jewels of the country’s outdoor music venues. It’s an honor to be invited to perform at such a prestigious venue.Spafford Shares New All-Improv Release, “Abaculus: An Improvisational Experience” [Stream]L4LM: In their earlier years, bands like The Disco Biscuits, The String Cheese Incident and STS9 performed at the Mishawaka. Do you ever put any thought into bands that have played iconic venues before you and how that relates to your own career?JF: It is definitely a rite of passage and an honor to be playing these iconic venues, you can feel the history in them. That has never really affected the way we play. We are always and will always be, unapologetically, Spafford.L4LM: The Mishawaka is known for its intimate and gorgeous setting. How does a venue’s vibe (or some other word) affect how you go into a performance?JF: The atmosphere a venue provides certainly plays its part for us. Although we are most affected by the crowd engagement from show to show, the real question is how are the fans reacting to the venues “vibe” which in turn reciprocates to our playing differently.L4LM: Playing Colorado, in general, always seems to bring out the best in bands. Why do you think that is?JF: It’s hard to say really. Maybe the elevation? Everything is different when you’re that high.Friday Schedule:6 pm – Doors8 pm – 9 pm – Moves at Midnight9:30 pm – 10:30 pm – Mungion11 pm – 1 am – Main SqueezeSaturday Schedule:4 pm – Doors6 pm – 6:40 pm – Jus Sayin’7 pm – 8 pm – Cycles8:30 pm – 9:30 pm – Organ Freeman10 pm – 11:30 pm – Aqueous12 am – 2 am – Spafford[cover photo by Keith Griner of Phierce Photo; follow him on IG]
By Dialogo April 22, 2010 The Obama Administration is moving to ease export controls on thousands of military items sought by allies and other friendly countries, while toughening controls on the most sensitive high-technology material. The plan was announced by U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who said it would likely increase exports, but is mainly aimed at improving security for the United States and its partners. Secretary Gates says the current system, last updated more than 20 years ago, makes it difficult for the United States to provide critical items to allied troops. He said it also hurts critical U.S. defense industries by driving some of the best scientists and engineers to work in other countries. Speaking to a business group in Washington, Gates outlined a plan to streamline the process of approving exports of most military gear, while enabling officials to focus on the most sensitive items. “We need a system that dispenses with the 95 per cent of easy cases and lets us concentrate our resources on the remaining five per cent,” said Robert Gates. “By doing so, we will be better able to monitor and enforce controls on technology transfers with real security implications, while helping to speed the provision of equipment to allies and partners who fight alongside us in coalition operations.” The current system involves two lists of restricted items maintained by two government departments, and two processes for approving export applications. Secretary Gates used words like Byzantine (ancient and complex), labyrinthine (complicated) and confusing to describe the system. Gates said it is even sometimes difficult to sell spare parts to countries that have already been allowed to purchase a major weapons system, like a fighter jet or military cargo plane. And he said even simple items, like nuts and bolts or low-technology gadgets available in stores, are often difficult to export if they have military origins. Gates said the administration will move in the coming months to consolidate the lists and the processes in a new agency, to create a new enforcement mechanism, and to seek congressional approval for further steps it wants to take by the end of this year. And he mentioned one other part of the plan.

Topics : US Senator Bernie Sanders said on Thursday that President Donald Trump is “prepared to undermine American democracy in order to stay in power,” and called for an independent commission to oversee the upcoming US elections.On Wednesday, Trump refused to commit to a peaceful transfer in response to a reporter’s question, and said he expected his Nov. 3 election battle with Democrat Joe Biden to be settled by the Supreme Court.Sanders, a progressive US senator from Vermont, said in a speech in Washington that Trump, behind in the polls, is “attempting massive voter suppression” and “sowing the seeds of chaos, confusion and conspiracy theories by casting doubt on the integrity of this election.” “This is an election between Donald Trump and democracy – and democracy must win,” said Sanders, an independent who Biden beat for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.Sanders, who has endorsed Biden, said he backed calls for a nonpartisan commission to oversee the election and help reassure voters, and repeated his call for the Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to hold hearings on election integrity.All states should begin counting mail-in ballots before Election Day and social media companies must stop misinformation spreading on their platforms, Sanders said.Congressional Republicans on Thursday issued statements assuring American voters that November’s election outcome will be accepted, but did not openly condemn Trump, who is also a Republican.”The winner of the November 3rd election will be inaugurated on January 20th. There will be an orderly transition just as there has been every four years since 1792,” McConnell wrote in a tweet.

Among homes that found their mark was 71 Withington St, East Brisbane, sold for $607,500 by Jody Green of Place for seller Mervyn Cronin. Picture: Darren England.BUYERS and renters hit slow-mo in April amid the effects of a loan crackdown, housing unaffordability and oversupply in some places.Buyer demand slumped in April nationally (-4.3 per cent), led down by New South Wales (-7.8 per cent) and Queensland (-5.4 per cent), according to the latest REA Group Property Demand Index, out today.Brisbane suburbs that are best for your healthBardon house shortlisted for national awardWhere rental listings have grown over 30 per centREA Group chief economist, Nerida Conisbee, said affordability issues had hit Sydney hard while Queensland was still reeling from oversupply and slow job growth.She said the drop came “as cooling measures put forward by APRA and more expensive and restrictive lending by banks started to cut in. It’s likely that the Easter long weekend and ANZAC Day also had an impact”.“Demand is still well above the same time last year and higher than the previous peak in November 2016. In December 2016, demand also dropped slightly when the banks increased interest rates independently of the RBA however, buyers ploughed back into the market in January and by March we hit another peak in demand.Buyers in southern capitals have hit a slump amid rising unaffordability across Sydney and Melbourne. Picture: Jay Town“It’s impossible to predict if this will happen again and if buyers are purely reacting to the changes. Time will tell as we head into winter.”She expected price growth to begin to moderate in New South Wales though Ms Conisbee did not believe the country’s biggest property market had hit its peak yet.Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:47Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:47 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD540p540p360p360p270p270pAutoA, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
