EDITORIAL: Shed more light on Pacers' plight

April 17, 2010
 IBJ Staff
It would be a sad day in our civic history if the Indiana Pacers packed up and left for a place with more financial firepower. But there’s a limit to how far the city should go to keep the team from leaving home.

EDITORIAL: Time for Brizzi to heed calls to step down

April 10, 2010

EDITORIAL: Opportunities lost in 2010 legislative session

March 20, 2010
 IBJ Staff
After a legislative session short on fireworks but absent any major achievements, it’s fair to ask how long “do no harm” will pass for progress in the Indiana General Assembly.

EDITORIAL: Citizens' utility deal is smart move

March 13, 2010
 IBJ Staff
Much work remains before the city’s water and sewer utilities are sold to Citizens Energy Group, but the general outline of the deal makes sense and deserves support—not political posturing—as final terms are hammered out.

EDITORIAL: Overspending saps nation's vigor

February 20, 2010
 IBJ Staff
Europe, not the United States, has the best growth prospects, an Asian executive told Gov. Mitch Daniels during a trade mission last fall. Why? America’s escalating debt.

EDITORIAL: New transit study focuses on return as well as cost

February 13, 2010
 IBJ Staff

EDITORIAL: Let's call the Super Bowl the Super Bowl

February 6, 2010
 IBJ Staff

More

EDITORIAL: Lawmakers should save tobacco agency and ban smoking

January 30, 2010
 IBJ Staff
If the General Assembly wants to create some good news in this budget-conscious short session, it will continue our wise investment in Hoosier health, and go one better by passing a statewide smoking ban.
More

EDITORIAL: Legislators should stick to the basics and go home

January 23, 2010
 IBJ Staff
We like the Indiana General Assembly’s no-nonsense approach to this year’s short legislative session—at least it looks good on the surface.
More

EDITORIAL: Booze bill is a small step for Sunday sales

January 16, 2010
 IBJ Staff
More than once, we have used this space to rail against legislation that would further restrict alcohol sales in Indiana. So we are happy to be patting lawmakers on the back for advancing a measure that would begin to ease the onerous limitations on when Hoosiers can buy booze.
More

EDITORIAL: Biglari putting Steak n Shake's future at stake

January 9, 2010
 IBJ Staff
The company’s return to profitability under CEO Sardar Biglari can’t be overlooked. But neither can strong signals that Steak n Shake’s CEO is using the venerable restaurant chain as a cash machine to finance his bigger goals.
More

EDITORIAL: City should phase in new fees

January 2, 2010
 IBJ Staff

More

EDITORIAL: IndyTalks gives the public a civil way to speak up

December 26, 2009
 IBJ Staff
There’s no shortage of opinions about what our city and state need to do to prosper in the 21st century. But much of what comes across is screamed in blogs or in stinging press releases issued by political parties whose only purpose is to paint the opposition as out of touch.

December 19, 2009
 IBJ Staff
There’s something refreshing and inspiring about individuals who set ambitious goals and throw themselves into meeting them.

This week’s issue features stories about two local businessmen. Both are native Hoosiers in their late 40s who showed entrepreneurial instincts at a young age. But the similarities end there.

November 28, 2009

EDITORIAL: Wise decision on federal rail funds

November 14, 2009
Local advocates of high-speed rail are understandably disappointed that the Indiana Department of Transportation has dropped the Chicago-Indianapolis-Cincinnati corridor from its application for federal rail funds, but the logic behind doing so seems sound.

EDITORIAL: Tough love from taxpayers fed up with school spending

EDITORIAL: Take the lead on smoking ban, Mayor Ballard

October 31, 2009
 IBJ Staff
Maddening? Disappointing? Choose your adjective. The failure of the latest proposal to prohibit smoking in almost all Indianapolis workplaces was clearly a setback for public health and a city that markets itself as a medical and life sciences hub.

  5. Problem: most of the people responding to this article don't know about this service AT ALL! Why? Lack of awareness. This isn't IndyGo. This is CIRTA: might as well be the mattress company because they are asleep at the wheel - something like 3 directors over the last year? Playing with federal grant money is great! This "region" wants commuter rail service, has spent MILLIONS on Transportation studies yet can't even support a commuter bus line? This is largely for suburban riders to get to downtown - not for "service people to work in our hotels and restaurants" ! Get your head out of your backside!! These are professionals, students etc. that don't want to fight traffic, save some money on parking, gas, stress.... if CIRTA would put their federal money into widely promoting the sevive to Greenwood, Fishers & Carmel instead of finding directors and studies - this would be a successful service. Our family uses(d) it daily for the last several years - but the recent uncertainty & now unreliability due to cuts from Carmel has been a problem. Now, costs us an additional $350/month for gas & parking ( $4200/year) plus vehicle wear, service, environmental impact ... YES - this REGION needs this this type of service in order to keep growing and getting the people it needs to fill skilled positions in downtown Indianapolis. Think outside of your own car !!!
