Simic leaving big shoes to fill at IU: Foundation leader will serve as president emeritus and stay involved with school

June 30, 2008
Curt Simic has spent 31 years as a student and in various positions at Indiana University. That's nearly half his life devoted to the Bloomington campus. So it's no surprise that Simic, 66, views his retirement as president of the IU Foundation-his most recent post and one he's held the past 20 years-with mixed emotions. While he's looking forward to having time to go bike riding-as a student in the early 1960s, Simic competed in the school's Little 500 Bicycle...

United Way tries to make the grade with literacy program: Education initiatives showing early success

June 23, 2008
Last summer, the United Way of Central Indiana decided it needed to go to school. The not-for-profit concluded that to achieve its goal of building stronger communities, it needed to supplement its human-service initiatives with a comprehensive focus on early childhood development and elementary education. "Our board decided we needed to elevate what we're doing with schools and focus on root causes of why students don't succeed," said Ellen Annala, CEO of United Way. "If we don't invest now when...

College and foundation officials call the accounting lapse and Lamkin's inability to produce receipts for all the submitted expenses an "innocent oversight" and have implemented a revised policy with tighter controls.

Officials turn up call for 2-year degrees: State putting emphasis on higher education options

June 9, 2008
State and local leaders are turning up the amp on the importance of higher education, but they're also trying to tune students into the message that being college-educated doesn't have to mean spending four years at a university. In recent weeks, both Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard and Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels have loudly proclaimed the state's need for more workers with twoyear degrees. While government officials have long said the state needs a more educated work force to attract business,...

Browning to build warehouse for Markey's Audio Visual:

May 26, 2008
Indianapolis-based Browning Investments Inc. will build a 30,000-square-foot office/warehouse for Markey's Audio Visual in the Keystone Enterprise Park, boosting the park's occupancy to about 90 percent. That's a huge milestone for the 62-acre development, which sits in the blighted Martindale-Brightwood neighborhood, say officials with Browning and the city of Indianapolis. Keystone Enterprise Park, near Interstate 70 and Keystone Avenue, is a city-led venture launched to bring jobs and private investment to the near-northeast side. The goal was 600 jobs; more...

Builders relying on medical projects: Amid general slowdown, health care sector busy

May 26, 2008
There's no shortage of research pointing to the growth in the health care industry. For example, health care expenditures will account for nearly a quarter of the gross domestic product by 2020. Consumers are increasing the number of times they visit the doctor, and the increase is even greater for baby boomers. The number of medical procedures being performed on an outpatient basis rises yearly. And jobs in the industry will grow 20 percent by 2016. To meet those demands,...

May 26, 2008
Herff Jones Inc.'s latest acquisition is a whopper that will remake the competitive dynamics of its niche industry-the sale of high school rings, yearbooks and other products that help mark educational milestones. The Indianapolis-based company this month agreed to buy American Achievement Group Holding Corp., a deal that would reduce the roster of Herff's major competitors from three to two. Herff has $511 million in annual revenue, while American Achievement has $315 million. Terms were not disclosed, but Dow Jones'...

Student loan industry still in limbo, despite new law: Sallie Mae, others wait for details from government

May 12, 2008
A federal bill intended to bail out student loan lenders like Sallie Mae, one of central Indiana's top employers, has raced like a bullet through Congress-a remarkable feat for Washington lawmakers. But what the future holds for embattled student lenders remains murky. While the newly passed measure will increase liquidity by allowing the U.S. Department of Education to buy loans, it leaves responsibility for working out the details to bureaucrats. In effect, Congress said in the bill that the Department...

IU-Bloomington, IUPUI ditch private-sector lenders: Student loan turmoil spurs schools to tap federal funds

April 28, 2008
With turmoil in student lending markets escalating, some universities are making major changes to ensure students have access to loans for the upcoming academic year.

The change will go into effect at the start of the next academic year. The two universities here are following other schools across the country making the...

Charter schools face long wait for county funding: State, local money based on outdated mechanism

April 7, 2008
The property tax reform plan recently signed into law by Gov. Mitch Daniels is expected to provide relief-eventually-for most homeowners. Unfortunately, the tax crisis wasn't fixed fast enough for charter schools. Because property taxes haven't been calculated yet this year, schools didn't get funding advances from Marion County, something 15 of the county's 21 charter schools needed last year. At least one school-Irvington Community Academy-has received help from the Greater Educational Opportunities Foundation in getting an emergency bridge loan of...

  1. Uh, sorry Johnnie, but you are incorrect. Despite the assertions by yourself and various defenders and captains, sports attendance is NOT off significantly at most sporting events in the US. Variances in attendance has been in the range of single digits, both + & - for years now. MLB has had most of its best overall attendance nubers in the last decade, and that trend has been consistent for most major sporting events. The number one issue cited by most fans when asked about attendance is the overall cost of attending. The presence of HD and big screen televisions in home doesn't even register, as a factor for not attending an event. VALUE in the product is the key, and apparently is something lacking in the current ICS. What other explanation is there when with what is routinely touted as the "best" racing on the planet, fans are staying away in DROVES. A "close" title battle into the last event at Fontana, with the "cars and stars" of the ICS, and who showed up? MAYBE 8K. Sorry, but HD TV isn't to blame for that kind of fan apathy.

  3. If she was worth the $ the public outcry over direct tv dropping them would have kept them on their dishes as we have seen with other companies. I too quit watching channel 13 after she showed up since I left channel 8 because of her all show rather than production results. When Randy on 8 corrected her she had a big head and incorrectly challenged his correction for pronunciation of a city. Other antics while she matures was too much for me with her very inaccurate forecasts. All the forecasters were predicting rain until Thursday except Chris. They predicted sunny on Thursday but instead of rain until Thursday upon which the sun would finally make it out in full glory Chris was right on the money just as I too predicted looking at the radar on weather.gov. One thing I love about Angela is the fear you can see in her every time it thunders in the winter. It far exceeds the entertainment value of her body language (high heel noise drags, depression, etc) when her forecasts are so incorrect. Her hair stands on end, you have to see it!!!
