1 p.m. 49A02-1404-CT-276. Pike Central High School, Petersburg. On Aug. 3, 2012, Darryl Clifton was killed in an accident when a vehicle driven by Ruby McCammack pulled out from a shopping center parking lot in Indianapolis and drove into his path. Clifton was on a motor scooter and died at the scene. McCammack admitted fault. Clifton's father, Ray, arrived at the scene shortly after the accident occurred and observed his son's scooter and a body lying in the road next to McCammack's vehicle, covered by a sheet but with shoes visible, which Ray recognized as his son's shoes. Ray claimed he suffered extreme emotional distress and filed a complaint against McCammack for negligent infliction of emotional distress. The trial court granted summary judgment for McCammack and Ray now appeals.

  1. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  2. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  3. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  4. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!

  5. @ Rebecca D Fell, I am very sorry for your loss. I think it gives the family solace and a bit of closure to go to a road side memorial. Those that oppose them probably did not experience the loss of a child or a loved one.
