A year ago this week, the Butler men’s basketball team was preparing to play the University of Texas-El Paso in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. Who knew what was about to unfold?

Marcus is naive

Reading the [Feb. 28] column by Morton Marcus was akin to reading the Sunday morning comics.

Krull column was out of line

March 12, 2011
[Columnist] John Krull, in an attempt [in the Feb. 28 Forefront] to slam U.S. Rep. Mike Pence [R-Indiana] and State Sen. Mike Delph [R-Carmel], used a very flawed premise.

Forefront one-sided

Indiana must limit immigration

March 12, 2011
It always amazes me that the obvious results of exporting jobs, importing workers and engaging in other forms of labor and environmental arbitrage are a mystery to newspaper editorialists and many of our so-called public leaders.

State should go smoke-free

March 12, 2011

PARKER: Primaries, spotty record undermine Daniels' chancesRestricted Content

Dan Parker / Special to IBJ

RENN: Beyond brain drain to talent magnetRestricted Content

March 12, 2011
Aaron M. Renn / Special to IBJ
Indy is no longer a sleepy, backwater state capital. While it certainly has a way to go in some departments, it is at the point where it can compete at a much higher level than many think.

CAMPBELL: The absurdity of our immigration politicsRestricted Content

March 12, 2011
Steve Campbell / Special to IBJ
If proponents were serious about the issue, they would make it a crime to hire an illegal immigrant. Not a slap on the wrist, not a fine, not an audit, but a felony.

VAUGHN: Time to end two-timing public employeesRestricted Content

March 12, 2011
Julia Vaughn / Special to IBJ
Shouldn’t the right of citizens to have government untainted by conflicts prevail over the perceived right of an individual to run for office and hold a public job at the same time?

MEREDITH: Community leaders know what's best for their schoolsRestricted Content

It seems clear that local control of school calendar issues should be based on what is best for the students in local settings and not about the bottom dollar of profit.

SHELLA: Indiana has no shortage of stupid lawsRestricted Content

March 12, 2011
Jim Shella / Special to IBJ

EDITORIAL: Hulman & Co.'s new board is good sign

March 5, 2011

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the IndyCar racing series are far too important to the Indianapolis economy for their fate to rest entirely in the hands of a small board populated by members of the same family.

  1. I had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

  2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

  3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

  4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

  5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
