The Journal Gazette of Fort Wayne devoted a healthy amount of ink to Sunshine Week 2010 with a package of stories exploring access issues in Indiana. ICOG officers, incidentally, did a fair bit of talking to reporters from the paper seeking expert comment for their stories.

Reporter Angela Mapes Turner also considered the issue of enforcement in a story about the Public Access Counselor’s office.
Reporter Jeff Wiehe explores the difficulty in getting access to police and fire records.
