Full Perspective Video Services Inc.: Marketing firm is one-stop shop Company stays agile thanks to logistics unit

May 21, 2007
After a stint in public accounting, Whetzel went to work for Fleming Packaging Co., a firm that duplicated and distributed videotapes. After taking some losses on a couple of projects, the owners of Fleming didn't see the potential for video duplication and distribution, so Whetzel and business partner Charlie Seldon bought the company in 1991. Doing the deal wasn't easy. "I borrowed from family, refinanced the house, and took everything out of savings," he said. "I was dead broke and...

Does gender matter in politics?: Despite high-profile wins, politics still remains a male-dominated field

December 11, 2006
1992 was dubbed the "Year of the Woman," when four women were elected to the U.S. Senate, but 2006 may be seen as the beginning of a new women's political movement, says Marie Wilson, president of The White House Project, a Washington, D.C.-based group that's working to advance women in political office. Indiana has made some strides, but 85 years after women won the hard-fought right to vote, the number of women in elected office at the national level hasn't...

Pools of Fun: Diving in the deep end Homebuilder's 'experiment' still paying off 25 years later

August 7, 2006
In 1981, few central Indiana residents considered an inground pool a backyard necessity, but Plainfield custom homebuilder Larry Good added one to a spec home anyway-and jumped into the deep end of a new enterprise. "After it was installed, the home sold immediately," said Bruce Holmes, CEO of the company Good launched. Pools of Fun started with one location and four employees. Today, it has five locations, a range of products and 90 full-time employees who share ownership of the...

eImagine Technology Group: Technology firm aims to deliver service with its software Owner: Hiring good employees key to small company's success

June 12, 2006
Communication-and simplicity-can be a challenge when it comes to tech talk. "It's like the old adage, if you ask a tech guy what time it is, he'll tell you how to build a watch," said Joel Russell, president of Indianapolis-based software developer eImagine Technology Group. But Russell works around potential "lingo" problems when he's meeting with customers. No matter the industry, he looks for ways to automate inefficient processes using computer software. His goal is to save his clients time...

Tan Mart Inc.: Tan 'fad' pays off for salon supplier But owner looking to add services to make it through slower months

May 1, 2006
When Dane Laster told his mother he wanted to distribute tanning-salon goods and services, she told him it was a fad that would never last. He has proven her wrong. "It's the fad that never died," he said, and the business he once dreamed of now supports him, his wife and their three kids. After his 1994 graduation from Perry Meridian High School, Laster went to work as a pharmacy technician before trying his hand at sales. Eventually, he made...

Home Room Construction: Remodeler's building plan: Double revenue Company targets homeowners considering do-it-yourself projects

January 23, 2006
Scott Heinemeyer's business is all about potential. That's why Home Room Construction tackles many kinds of projects-everything from simple handyman services to complex room additions. After all, what's the point in limiting the possibilities? "We are a big company that happens to be small right now," Heinemeyer said of his four-person firm. All told, Home Room finishes anywhere from 200 to 300 projects a year, he said, and revenue is expected to nearly double to $500,000 in 2006. Heinemeyer started...

  1. Socialized medicine works great for white people in Scandanavia. It works well in Costa Rica for a population that is partly white and partly mestizo. I don't really see Obamacare as something aimed against whites. I think that is a Republican canard designed to elicit support from white people for republican candidates who don't care about them any more than democrats care about the non-whites they pander to with their phony maneuvers. But what is different between Costa Rica nd the Scandanavian nations on one hand and the US on the other? SIZE. Maybe the US is just too damn big. Maybe it just needs to be divided into smaller self governing pieces like when the old Holy Roman Empire was dismantled. Maybe we are always trying the same set of solutions for different kinds of people as if we were all the same. Oh-- I know-- that is liberal dogma, that we are all the same. Which is the most idiotic American notion going right back to the propaganda of 1776. All men are different and their differences are myriad and that which is different is not equal. The state which pretends men are all the same is going to force men to be the same. That is what America does here, that is what we do in our stupid overseas wars, that is how we destroy true diversity and true difference, and we are all as different groups of folks, feeling the pains of how capitalism is grinding us down into equally insignificant proletarian microconsumers with no other identity whether we like it or not. And the Marxists had this much right about the War of Independence: it was fundamentally a war of capitalist against feudal systems. America has been about big money since day one and whatever gets in the way is crushed. Health care is just another market and Obamacare, to the extent that it Rationalizes and makes more uniform a market which should actually be really different in nature and delivery from place to place-- well that will serve the interests of the biggest capitalist stakeholders in health care which is not Walmart for Gosh Sakes it is the INSURANCE INDUSTRY. CUI BONO Obamacare? The insurance industry. So republicans drop the delusion pro capitalist scales from your eyes this has almost nothing to do with race or "socialism" it has to do mostly with what the INSURANCE INDUSTRY wants to have happen in order to make their lives and profits easier.

  2. Read the article - the reason they can't justify staying is they have too many medicare/medicaid patients and the re-imbursements for transporting these patient is so low.

  3. I would not vote for Bayh if he did run. I also wouldn't vote for Pence. My guess is that Bayh does not have the stomach to oppose persons on the far left or far right. Also, outside of capitalizing on his time as U. S. Senator (and his wife's time as a board member to several companies) I don't know if he is willing to fight for anything. If people who claim to be in the middle walk away from fights with the right and left wing, what are we left with? Extremes. It's probably best for Bayh if he does not have the stomach for the fight but the result is no middle ground.

  4. JK - I meant that the results don't ring true. I also questioned the 10-year-old study because so much in the "health care system" has changed since the study was made. Moreover, it was hard to get to any overall conclusion or observation with the article. But....don't be defensive given my comments; I still think you do the best job of any journalist in the area shedding light and insight on important health care issues.

  5. Probably a good idea he doesn't run. I for one do not want someone who lives in VIRGINIA to be the governor. He gave it some thought, but he likes Virginia too much. What a name I cannot say on this site! The way these people think and operate amuses me.
