Gene Heiman, owner of the bar also known as the old Red Barn, said this year was the 40th annual gun...

    Evansville, IN police ejected a gentleman for lawfully open carrying his pistol at the Evansville Zoo back in 2011.

    EVANSVILLE — Stephanie Milan, 18, was relaxing in her family’s living room Thursday watching the Food Network when a heavily armed squad of Evansville police officers arrived on the front porch. Dressed in full protective gear, police broke the storm door of the home at 616 East Powell Ave. — the Milans’ front door was already open on the hot summer day. They also broke a front window. They tossed a flashbang stun grenade into the living room that made a deafening blast. A short distance away, a local television crew’s cameras were rolling. The police had invited the station...

    ndiana Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh has decided against a run for governor in 2012, robbing Democrats of their top recruit in the Hoosier State. "After careful consideration, I have concluded that the appropriate decision is not to be a candidate for governor of Indiana in 2012," Bayh said in a statement released to the Fix. ""The principle reason for my decision is the welfare of my twin sons." Bayh's decision leaves the Democratic field wide open. Reps. Brad Ellsworth and Baron Hill, both of whom lost races this fall, are likely to consider the Bayh-less contest. Others mentioned include Rep....

    I have to admit, at the beginning of the last presidential campaign, I was intending to vote for Mitt Romney. I wasn't a huge fan, but my primary concern was finding someone who could beat Rudy Giuliani, the one person in the race I simply could not support; on that score, Gov. Romney seemed like the best option. He was the most conservative of the plausible candidates, and had proven himself to be an effective executive in a number of positions. His record in Massachusetts doesn't look as good now as it did before I really understood the situation with...

    Before flying back to Alaska, Gov. Sarah Palin made one last stop in Evansville this morning. Palin went to Biaggi's Ristorante Italiano to attend a private breakfast event hosted by S.M.I.L.E on Down syndrome, a local group that provides resources and support for people with Down syndrome and their families. The 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee was accompanied by her husband, Todd Palin, and Meghan Stapleton, Alaska-based director of her political action committee, SarahPAC. Palin told the Vanderburgh County Right to Life 2009 Spring Banquet Thursday night that her baby son Trig, who was born with Down syndrome, did not...

    In front of an audience of nearly 3,000 anti-abortion rights advocates in Evansville, Ind., Palin described in detail how she struggled with her fifth pregnancy last year and choked up when she spoke about Trig's birth. "It was a time when I had to ask myself was I gonna walk the walk or I was gonna talk the talk," Palin said. She said she learned she was pregnant with Trig while she was out of the state at an oil and gas conference. "There, just for a fleeting moment, I thought, I knew, nobody knows me here.

    Far from her home state, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin traveled to Indiana Thursday and reminded Republicans why she remains a party heavyweight and a top prospective presidential candidate in 2012. Palin drew approximately 3,000 people to the Vanderburgh County Right to Life fundraising dinner in Evansville, an annual banquet that typically attracts some of the GOP’s top national talent. Her sold-out appearance in a local exhibition hall prompted organizers to set up a paid closed-circuit broadcast at a nearby auditorium for a large spill-over crowd and led local authorities to close down nearby streets. “This is always a large event,”...

    Making Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's April 16 visit to Evansville come off without a hitch isn't just a question of who gets to pick her up at the airport. For the small band of local residents tasked with handling the details of Vanderburgh County Right to Life's annual Spring Banquet at The Centre, it's about such mundane but essential tasks as drilling 2,200 holes into blocks of wood. After all, you can't have displays for 218 tables without a way to hold up all those red, white and blue dowels. "My neighbors are all laughing at me because I'm always...
