Economy jitters won't go away

Exit polls yesterday showed Hoosiers voted their pocketbooks. Theyâ??re worried about the economy.

That has a familiar ring. Many voters made a similar point four years ago when Gov. Mitch Daniels beat Gov. Joe Kernan by promising to improve the economy.

Now, Jill Long Thompson is saying much the same. She defeated Jim Schellinger yesterday for the right to face Daniels, and says Daniels has mismanaged economic development.

Who are voters upset with on the economy, Bush, Daniels, or someone or something else?

  • I haven't heard one intelligent thought from the Jill Long Thompson campaign.
  • Gas at $4.00 per gallon. Won't make any difference who get's elected. This country is dead in the water. Most will run out of money. Rebate checks will go for gas. When that's gone, we're done. It's just a matter of time before the lowest paid employees will not be able to get to work. Then all social services will break down. Then it's evey man for himself. It's all over. Most people just havn't done the math yet.

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
