Editorial: IndyBar - Your Source for Information

By Julie Armstrong, Executive Director

Back in the day, even before I joined the IndyBar staff, there was a singular method for communicating with our members. Known as the Bulletin, it was a printed elongated postcard readily identified for its unique size and concise information. It was the most recognizable and convenient way to know what was going on at the Bar.

Over time growth in IndyBar programs and services and the development of new technology made it beneficial to utilize a variety of other communication tools. Some of those resources include: The Indiana Lawyer, www.indybar.org, print brochures, Facebook, and Twitter. The focus of each of these new tools is essentially the same as the old Bulletin – what’s happening at the IndyBar. Today we’re adding yet another tool for providing information by launching the IndyBar blog at www.indybar.org.

For those unfamiliar with blogs they’re essentially an online diary of thoughts and information for open sharing with those taking the time to read to the blog. The IndyBar’s blog is intended to share news of new laws, post articles of common interest, and comment on information unique to our legal community. Don’t want to have the headache of remembering to check the blog? No problem. Follow Indybar on Twitter. The daily blog posting will be tweeted so you can determine at a glance if there’s information of interest.

Consider our blog as a quick, yet useful glance in your day. Rarely will the posting extend beyond two paragraphs. If you find yourself still reading it will be because you found the links we may provide to be useful.

You’re also encouraged to provide information for the blog. Your help in suggesting blogs for linking to our own is also appreciated. The more information provided the better.

What we don’t want to do with the blog is become narrow in our focus, political in our nature or stale in our content. It’s a diary of ideas and information which we hope will promote thought and additional personal research.

Schedule a moment to check out the blog. It won’t hurt, and it might help. Who knows, you might even find your name in a posting.•

  1. The sad thing is that no fish were thrown overboard The "greenhorn" who had never fished before those 5 days was interrogated for over 4 hours by 5 officers until his statement was illicited, "I don't want to go to prison....." The truth is that these fish were measured frozen off shore and thawed on shore. The FWC (state) officer did not know fish shrink, so the only reason that these fish could be bigger was a swap. There is no difference between a 19 1/2 fish or 19 3/4 fish, short fish is short fish, the ticket was written. In addition the FWC officer testified at trial, he does not measure fish in accordance with federal law. There was a document prepared by the FWC expert that said yes, fish shrink and if these had been measured correctly they averaged over 20 inches (offshore frozen). This was a smoke and mirror prosecution.

  2. I love this, Dave! Many congrats to you! We've come a long way from studying for the bar together! :)

  3. This outbreak illustrates the absurdity of the extreme positions taken by today's liberalism, specifically individualism and the modern cult of endless personal "freedom." Ebola reminds us that at some point the person's own "freedom" to do this and that comes into contact with the needs of the common good and "freedom" must be curtailed. This is not rocket science, except, today there is nonstop propaganda elevating individual preferences over the common good, so some pundits have a hard time fathoming the obvious necessity of quarantine in some situations....or even NATIONAL BORDERS...propagandists have also amazingly used this as another chance to accuse Western nations of "racism" which is preposterous and offensive. So one the one hand the idolatry of individualism has to stop and on the other hand facts people don't like that intersect with race-- remain facts nonetheless. People who respond to facts over propaganda do better in the long run. We call it Truth. Sometimes it seems hard to find.

  4. It would be hard not to feel the Kramers' anguish. But Catholic Charities, by definition, performed due diligence and held to the statutory standard of care. No good can come from punishing them for doing their duty. Should Indiana wish to change its laws regarding adoption agreements and or putative fathers, the place for that is the legislature and can only apply to future cases. We do not apply new laws to past actions, as the Kramers seem intent on doing, to no helpful end.

  5. I am saddened to hear about the loss of Zeff Weiss. He was an outstanding member of the Indianapolis legal community. My thoughts are with his family.
