An Indianapolis attorney with years of environmental experience has been appointed by the Environmental Protection Agency director to the agency's Office of Air and Radiation. Janet McCabe, executive director of Indianapolis' Improving Kids' Environment, a nonprofit advocacy group that works to reduce environmental threats to children's health, will join the government agency as the principal deputy assistant administrator of OAR.

McCabe came to Indiana in 1993 and worked for the Indiana Department of Environmental Management's Office of Air Quality, serving as director beginning in 1998. She also worked as an adjunct professor in the Department of Public Health at Indiana University School of Medicine. McCabe has been a member of EPA's Clean Air Act Advisory Committee and Children's Health Protection Advisory Group, and the National Institutes of Environmental Health Sciences Council.

Before moving to Indiana, McCabe was Massachusetts' assistant secretary for environmental affairs and assistant attorney general in the state's Environmental Protection Division. She graduated from Harvard Law School in 1983.

McCabe is scheduled to begin at the EPA on Nov. 9, where she will help manage programs designed to improve air quality, address global climate change, and implement indoor air and radiation programs.

  1. For many years this young man was "family" being my cousin's son. Then he decided to ignore my existence and that of my daughter who was very hurt by his actions after growing up admiring, Jason. Glad he is doing well, as for his opinion, if you care so much you wouldn't ignore the feelings of those who cared so much about you for years, Jason.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
