Indiana Senator Dan Coats says he’s “profoundly skeptical” of the nuclear agreement announced Tuesday between Iran and a group of nations led by the U.S. It’s an agreement on which Congress will have a say.
Coats, who serves on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, says he will carefully review the details of the deal before rendering a final opinion. But he says he’s harkening back to a deal President Clinton made with North Korea – an agreement which ultimately resulted in that country obtaining nuclear weapons.
Indiana is gearing up for a celebration of its 200-year history, and former Congressman Lee Hamilton says the upcoming bicentennial party can’t just be about the state’s past, but also about its future. He helped announce the creation of the Bicentennial Visioning Project on Friday.
Hamilton – who co-chairs the Indiana Bicentennial Commission – says he wants the state’s Bicentennial Celebration to be about trying to make Indiana’s future a better one.
The wife of former Indiana Rep. Lee Hamilton died this weekend after being run over by her own car. She died from her injuries hours later at the hospital.
Bloomington police captain Joe Qualters says 82-year-old Nancy Hamilton was taking her pet to College Mall Veterinary Hospital off east Third Street in Bloomington Saturday afternoon.
“When she went to retrieve her animal from the back of her car, apparently the vehicle had not been placed in park and was still in gear,” Qualters said. “It was determined the vehicle knocked her down but then also rolled over her.”
