Gov. Mitch Daniels and Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard have selected the members of the Courthouse Preservation Advisory Commission. The commission will advise county officials on caring for Indiana's historic courthouses and provide recommendations on how they can be preserved.

Chief Justice Shepard will serve as commission chair and appoint a judge to the commission. Other positions are as specified by the 2008 law: as licensed architect, Ron Ross of Fort Wayne; as engineer, Fritz Herget of Indianapolis; as architectural historian, Diana Hawes of Bloomington; as county commission member, Kathy Beumer of Randolph County; as local community foundation representative, Brad Bumgardner; and as member of the Association of Indiana Counties, David Decker of Terre Haute.

Ex officio members are Chief Justice Shepard; director of the Department of Natural Resources Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology Dr. James A. Glass; president of Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana Marsh Davis; and executive director of the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs David Terrell.

The commission will provide county officials with assessments of historic courthouse conditions and information on rehabilitation and preservation plans. It will also submit a report to the General Assembly by August 2011 that assesses the importance of preserving courthouses, investigates the need for rehabilitation and maintenance of these structures; and studies the needs of county officials in planning for restoration, rehabilitation, and maintenance of the courthouses.

The commission's first meeting is at 1:30 p.m. April 8 in Conference Room 5, Indiana Government Center South, 401 W. Washington St., Indianapolis.

  1. 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.

  2. 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!!

  3. @ 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.

  4. If it were your child that died maybe you'd be more understanding. Most of us don't have graves to visit. My son was killed on a state road and I will be putting up a memorial where he died. It gives us a sense of peace to be at the location he took his last breath. Some people should be more understanding of that.

  5. Can we please take notice of the connection between the declining state of families across the United States and the RISE OF CPS INVOLVEMENT??? They call themselves "advocates" for "children's rights", however, statistics show those children whom are taken from, even NEGLIGENT homes are LESS likely to become successful, independent adults!!! Not to mention the undeniable lack of respect and lack of responsibility of the children being raised today vs the way we were raised 20 years ago, when families still existed. I was born in 1981 and I didn't even ever hear the term "CPS", in fact, I didn't even know they existed until about ten years ago... Now our children have disagreements between friends and they actually THREATEN EACH OTHER WITH, "I'll call CPS" or "I'll have [my parent] (usually singular) call CPS"!!!! And the truth is, no parent is perfect and we all have flaws and make mistakes, but it is RIGHTFULLY OURS - BY THE CONSTITUTION OF THIS GREAT NATION - to be imperfect. Let's take a good look at what kind of parenting those that are stealing our children are doing, what kind of adults are they producing? WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS TO THE CHILDREN THAT HAVE BEEN RIPPED FROM THEIR FAMILY AND THAT CHILD'S SUCCESS - or otherwise - AS AN ADULT.....
