INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill has been named vice chairman of the national Republican Attorneys General Association even as he resists calls from the state's GOP governor and legislative leaders to resign over allegations that he drunkenly groped a lawmaker and three legislative staffers. The Washington-based organization is a political group aimed at electing Republicans as state attorney generals. State campaign records show it provided about half of the $1.5 million Hill spent in winning election as attorney general in 2016. A special prosecutor declined last month to pursue any criminal charges against Hill, despite a state report that witnesses said Hill touched the women inappropriately during the March party at an Indianapolis bar. Hill has denied groping the four women, including Democratic state Rep. Mara Candelaria Reardon. … [Read more...] about Indiana attorney general gets national post amid allegations
Associated Press Published 1:23 AM EST Nov 13, 2018 Indiana coach Tom Allen understands the challenges his team faces this weekend. No. 4 Michigan is the Big Ten’s highest-ranked team and the one most likely to carry the conference banner into the College Football Playoff if anyone does. Allen, of course, also knows the refrain echoing throughout his home state: Indiana hasn’t won at Michigan since 1967. None of it matters to the Hoosiers, who ended a four-game losing streak Saturday and now need one more win to become bowl-eligible. Saturday’s victory over Maryland should give the Hoosiers (5-5, 2-5 Big Ten) more than just an energy boost. They desperately needed a home win to build some momentum for the home stretch and to give themselves a realistic chance of becoming bowl-eligible for the third time in four years. Now comes the harder part, winning No. 6 either at Michigan this weekend or at home against rival Purdue in their home finale. For programs like … [Read more...] about Purdue, Indiana each a win from bowl eligibility

Perry A. Farrell Detroit Free Press Published 11:08 AM EST Nov 10, 2018 David Ellis was having more fun than any of his Clinton Twp. Chippewa Valley teammates. He was sliding in the snow, taking pictures with family and teammates, hugging everyone in sight and running around like a kid on Christmas morning who just got his favorite gift. It was his last home game. The Big Reds pounded Dearborn Fordson, 42-7, and for the third straight week the team played under a running clock. Ellis was more than spectacular. The senior wide receiver, considered the No. 29 player in Michigan for 2019 by 247Sports Composite, caught an 80-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Tommy Schuster and raced 99 yards one play after Fordson fumbled at the Chippewa Valley 1. An assistant coach hugged him afterwards and said: “You are a part of history, you have the longest play from scrimmage in Chippewa Valley history. Nobody can beat you." Ellis accounted for 232 yards in the first half. … [Read more...] about Chippewa Valley, David Ellis (Indiana) no secret anymore
