Shari Rudavsky Indianapolis Star Published 6:00 AM EDT Sep 27, 2018 Health insurance is not cheap for Adam and Trisha Brand. Each month the South Broad Ripple couple spends about $1,200 on insurance for themselves and their two young children, who both have asthma. Not only do they worry about what might happen to their premiums if Obamacare disappears, they also fear that dismantling the Affordable Care Act would dissolve the protection for pre-existing conditions that guarantees they can insure their family. Fort Wayne businessman Mark Hagar shares the Brands' concern about healthcare. But as the owner of a small company, he faces very different challenges.

Regulators behind the Indiana gaming industry are taking steps to gather a clear idea of the possibilities of sports betting in the state, months after the Supreme Court struck down a 1992 law prohibiting the practice in all but four states. In late July, the Indiana Gaming Commission entered into a two-year contract with Eilers & Krejcik Gaming LLC, a market analysis firm specializing in the nation’s burgeoning sports wagering industry. The contract obtained by The Statehouse File reports Eilers & Krejcik will be compensated with $74,999 over a two-year period as the firm conducts a variety of studies that involve sports gambling.

Shannon Watts has a bodyguard who travels with her. He doesn’t carry a gun—his job is to scope out the local hospitals and know which one to rush her to if she gets shot.
