At a meeting on July 8, Councilman Mitch Harper (R-4th District) introduced changes to a bill that would have repealed collective bargaining for the public safety unions. Councilman John Crawford (R-At-Large) originally introduced that proposal in May and it had been tabled. Harper changed it to take out doing away with collective bargaining and added the optional union membership. “It protects all city employees. It protects those who choose to...

NEW HAVEN, Ind. (WANE) - One of the most vocal opponents of Fort Wayne’s smoking ban seven years ago has now changed his mind and will soon make his restaurant smoke-free. The smoking ban put in place in 2007 only affects restaurants and bars in Fort Wayne’s city limits. Since Rack and Helen’s in New Haven is outside the city, smoking was still allowed there. However, owner, Wes Anderson, is personally changing his mind and banning smoking from his establishment. He said the decision is more about him being able to decide what goes on in his business instead of government telling...

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Attorneys on either side of a lawsuit over Indiana’s overthrown gay marriage ban are wrangling over how many federal judges should hear the state’s appeal, a technical issue that could make a big difference. Those representing gay couples who want the ban overturned permanently — the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana, Lambda Legal and a private law firm — have argued in a brief filed Monday that a three-judge panel of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is enough. They say three-judge panels in other districts have heard similar cases and at least one has rejected...
