Indiana will not recognize same sex marriages performed between a federal judge’s ruling striking down the state’s gay marriage ban and an appeals court order halting that decision.
Federal judge Richard Young ruled Indiana’s ban on same sex marriage unconstitutional in an order handed down late last month. Two days later, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a stay of that ruling, halting its effects.
The Indiana State Museum is looking for items related to the experience of Indiana‘s Jewish community. Senior vice president Susannah Koerber says the museum is in search of objects from everyday Jewish life, from sports equipment to items families brought along when they first came to America.

Video games have long been known to improve hand-eye coordination. Now, a Purdue study shows that may be of particular use to veterinary surgeons.
The research suggests video games may be better tools than the so-called “box trainers” vets currently use to learn laparoscopic surgery.
A box trainer is usually made from PVC pipe that's covered by a cloth to hide what's inside (usually rings which students are told to put on posts). The catch is that has to be done using two arms with mechanical fingers on the end.
State Senator Jim Banks, a Naval Reserve officer, will become the first state lawmaker to use a provision in Indiana law to take a temporary leave of absence when he is deployed to Afghanistan this fall.
A Pittsburgh consulting firm has begun a study aimed at boosting regional economies in Indiana.
At Governor Pence‘s request, legislators this year called for a study comparing regional cities in Indiana to similar regions in other states, then examining what the comparable cities have done to spur economic development and looking for patterns which might be duplicated here.
Indiana Economic Development Corporation president Eric Doden says the legislation didn‘t specify which cities to study, or which clusters of cities constitute a region.
You’ve been critical of Amtrak’s Hoosier State service, even as the city has helped subsidize its continued operation during the past year. This week, it was announced a private firm in Chicago, Corridor Capital, is the preferred vendor to operate the line starting in October. Is that any better, in your estimation, than Amtrak running the trains?
