IBJ won eight awards at the Alliance of Area Business Publications’ summer conference Saturday in Indianapolis.

Judges from the University of Missouri's School of Journalism evaluated 555 entries from 47 publications, including papers in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. All told, 107 gold, silver or bronze awards were handed out.

IBJ won gold awards in three categories, including best daily e-mail.

In honoring IBJ Daily, judges wrote that it “provides a wealth of business news and information in a tidy summary that is easily digestible.”

Other IBJ gold medal winners:

• Best staff-generated blog for The Score, written by sports-business reporter Anthony Schoettle.

• Best newspaper front page for a collection of entries submitted by the IBJ art department under the guidance of former Creative Director Jo Hohlbein.

IBJ's other prizes:

• Silver. Best investigative reporting for real estate reporter Cory Schouten’s “Simon Says, City Does” story examining the relationship between the city and Simon family.

• Silver. Best coverage of local breaking news for health care reporter J.K. Wall’s online and print coverage of Eli Lilly and Co.’s plans to lay off 5,500 employees and restructure the company.

• Silver. Best recurring feature for Managing Editor Greg Andrews’ weekly Behind the News column.

• Silver. Best website for IBJ.com.
 
• Bronze. Best feature layout for a Construction/Design/Engineering Focus cover.

Los Angeles-based AABP is a national organization representing 64 independent magazine and newspaper members in the United States, Canada and Australia.

Also this month, IBJ was honored by Editor and Publisher magazine with one of its coveted EPpy interactive awards. IBJ.com was named best newspaper-affiliated website with fewer than 1 million unique monthly visitors. The site also was a finalist in the best business website category. The EPpys were handed out June 17 in Las Vegas.

    IBJ's journalism awards are very well deserved IMHO. I receive comparable daily business journal emails from a handful of cities. IBJ's layout and article summaries are the best. And I really cannot remember any of the other publications doing the kind of indepth reporting that the IBJ regularly does for its on-line readers. Congratulations.

  1. The $104K to CRC would go toward debts service on $486M of existing debt they already have from other things outside this project. Keystone buys the bonds for 3.8M from CRC, and CRC in turn pays for the parking and site work, and some time later CRC buys them back (with interest) from the projected annual property tax revenue from the entire TIF district (est. $415K / yr. from just this property, plus more from all the other property in the TIF district), which in theory would be about a 10-year term, give-or-take. CRC is basically betting on the future, that property values will increase, driving up the tax revenue to the limit of the annual increase cap on commercial property (I think that's 3%). It should be noted that Keystone can't print money (unlike the Federal Treasury) so commercial property tax can only come from consumers, in this case the apartment renters and consumers of the goods and services offered by the ground floor retailers, and employees in the form of lower non-mandatory compensation items, such as bonuses, benefits, 401K match, etc.

  2. $3B would hurt Lilly's bottom line if there were no insurance or Indemnity Agreement, but there is no way that large an award will be upheld on appeal. What's surprising is that the trial judge refused to reduce it. She must have thought there was evidence of a flagrant, unconscionable coverup and wanted to send a message.

  3. As a self-employed individual, I always saw outrageous price increases every year in a health insurance plan with preexisting condition costs -- something most employed groups never had to worry about. With spouse, I saw ALL Indiana "free market answer" plans' premiums raise 25%-45% each year.

  4. It's not who you chose to build it's how they build it. Architects and engineers decide how and what to use to build. builders just do the work. Architects & engineers still think the tarp over the escalators out at airport will hold for third time when it snows, ice storms.
