Evolving mobile phones indispensable for on-the-go technology 'addicts'

June 2, 2008
Mitch Roob oversees a state agency with a $6.5 billion budget and thousands of employees who deliver a range of services to more than a million Hoosiers. And he'd be lost without his BlackBerry. He is just one of the many Indianapolis professionals who use enhanced mobile devices, or smartphones, to keep tabs on their work and increase their productivity away from the office.

Low-key guitarist's 'workaholic' approach helps Margot gain fame

April 21, 2008
Andy Fry has played in five bands in the past 10 years or so, serving in various capacities, including singer/songwriter. He and his seven bandmates of Indianapolis-based Margot and the Nuclear So and So's have just recorded their second album, "Animal!"

Tattoo artist inks reputation for detail

March 31, 2008
Away from the job, Monte Agee is like any other family man. But in his 12 years as a tattoo artist, he has inked everything from pop-culture icons such as the Powerpuff Girls to Renaissance-style portraits of biblical figures and full-color scenes straight out of the children's book "Where the Wild Things Are."

Employee-ownership plans increasingly common: Selling to staff allows owners to ease back, gives workers stake in firms' success

March 24, 2008
When Unique Home Solutions owner Bob Dillon started thinking about retirement, he knew he didn't want to sell his company to the highest bidder. After all, he and his 125 employees worked hard to establish a corporate culture that has helped the service firm triple revenue in recent years-and win the Better Business Bureau's Torch Award for marketplace ethics four times. So like a growing number of baby boomers, Dillon is planning to sell the business to his staff through...

New Black Expo leader focusing on finances: Bell will draw on skills as attorney, community volunteer

February 25, 2008
Less than a month after starting a job she didn't know she wanted, Indiana Black Expo CEO Tanya Bell has big plans for the nation's oldest and largest group of its kind. Bell wants to diversify the statewide organization's revenue stream and expand its already-impressive roster of more than 100 corporate sponsors. Doing that will mean raising awareness of the year-round programs that have been overshadowed by IBE's two signature events: its annual Summer Celebration and Circle City Classic football...

Memory Gardens lawsuit seeks $20 million

February 11, 2008
An Indianapolis law firm has filed a class-action suit seeking more than $20 million from a pair of financial-services firms it says facilitated the transactions that allowed a New Jersey couple to plunder cemetery trust funds. Cohen & Malad LLP filed the lawsuit late last month on behalf of thousands of customers of Indianapolis-based Memory Gardens Management Corp., which owns Memory Gardens in Greenwood, Lincoln Memory Gardens in Boone County and other cemeteries. The defendants are the company, New York-based...

Brightpoint aims to stay ahead of wireless pack: Phone distributor looks to focus on add-on devices

February 4, 2008
If Brightpoint Inc. wants to keep its place at the top of the cell phone distribution business, its leaders know they can't expect to rest on their laurels. That's why the Plainfield-based company hired mobile industry veteran Bashar Nejdawi to spearhead an effort to expand Brightpoint's so-called mobile enhancement business, selling add-ons that enhance a phone's functionality, such as hands-free devices, battery chargers, phone cases and software. The company already offers such accessories, but has not seen substantial success outside...

  1. The Walgreens did not get a lot of traffic. It was not located on the corner of the intersection, and not really visible from Emerson. Meanwhile the CVS there is huge and right on the corner. I am guessing a lot of people drove by a million times and never knew the Walgreens was there. Although, with the new Walmart market going in, that area could really see a lot of increase in traffic soon.

  2. You folks don't have a clue. There is a legal way to enter this country and to get aid. This left unchecked could run us to ruin quickly. I also heard that 'supporters' were getting major $$ to take them in? Who's monitoring this and guess who pays the bill? I support charitable organizations... but this is NOT the way to do it!

  3. Apparently at some time before alcohol has been served at the fair. The problem is that beer or wine used to be a common drink for people before soft drinks and was not thought to be that unusual. Since many folks now only drink to see how much they can drink or what kind of condition they can end up in it becomes more problematic. Go to Europe and its no big deal just as if you had sodas of milk to drink everyday. Its using common sense that is lacking now days.

  4. To address the epic failure of attracting race fans to both the Indy 500 and Brickyard 400 would take too much of my time to write. Bottom line Boles is clueless and obviously totally out of touch with the real paying fan base. I see nothing but death spin coming for the Brickyard, just like Indy. Get somebody in a place of power that understands what race fans want.

  5. I am a race fan through & through. It doesn't matter if it's Indy cars or Nascar. I love a great race. I go to several other tracks each year and you can see the entire track. I know Indy has tradition, but fans want to see the entire race. I sit in the Penthouse, am almost 60 years old, and would like to see a better TV screen in turn 1 so you can see the entire race. Then I think Indy needs to install an escalator so us old folks can make it up to the Penthouse and down again if we want more options to purchase food and drinks. Just a race fans opinion. Lights won't make the race any better, but you might be able to see the TV better at night. Turn 1's screen needs replaced with a better and bigger screen.
