College affordability has gained a lot of attention over the past few years, but I am not sure that the simple focus on costs is the right way to think about the problem.

IU striving to keep tuition affordableRestricted Content

December 29, 2008
Your Dec. 8 editorial, "State flunking affordability test," quotes liberally from the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education's recent report, which concludes that 49 of 50 states—including Indiana—deserve an "F" for their affordability efforts. Unfortunately, this grade is based on an analysis that dramatically overstates college costs in Indiana—or at least those costs incurred by Hoosiers attending Indiana University.

Business leaders and educators agree on what's needed to improve Indiana's economic health and enhance its place in the global economy: a larger pool of skilled workers.

Anthony Schoettle
With demand for welders outstripping supply, manufacturers, road and bridge builders, and other construction company owners are all hurting. Despite a willingness to increase hourly wages and even offer signing bonuses, the search for welders is getting more desperate.

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
