KATTERJOHN: Climbing mountains for Parkinson'sRestricted Content

July 20, 2009
Chris Katterjohn
What is it about mountains? People climb them because they’re there. People climb them because the experience is humbling and rewarding. People climb them because they represent a physical and mental challenge that, once met, is deeply satisfying.

KATTERJOHN: Tut-tut, looks like parochialismRestricted Content

When prominent Egyptologist Zahi Hawass shared stories at a recent event about his personal meeting with President Obama, my pride was momentarily dashed by the behavior of the people sitting at the next table. When Hawass noted how impressed he was with our new president, these people became incredulous. They started snickering like schoolchildren.

This economy has been tough on just about everybody. No matter what your choice of media, you can't escape the news about companies and entire industries challenged by the recession. But what about the folks doing all that reporting?

When our economy is challenged, American resilience and resourcefulness have heretofore always saved the day. I have good reason to believe those traits will save the day once again.

Florida ready to welcome DungyRestricted Content

January 19, 2009
Chris Katterjohn
In southwest Florida, the take on Tony Dungy's departure was a little different than it was in Indianapolis. In Tampa, where Dungy's family lives, the story was played like the return of a native son.

  1. Now if he'd just stay there...

  2. Daniel - what about the many US citizens who do NOT follow what the Bible teaches? The Hindus, Jews, Muslims and others who are all American citizens entitled to all rights as Americans?? This issue has NOTHING to do with "What the Bible says..." Keep all Churches separate from State! Pence's ongoing idiocy continues to make Indiana look like a backwards, homophobic state in the eyes of our nation. Can't we move on to bigger issues - like educating our kids?

  3. 1. IBJ should link to the referenced report. We are in the age of electronic media...not sharing information is lazy. Here is a link http://www.in.gov/gov/files/Blue_Ribbon_Panel_Report_July_9_2014.pdf 2. The article should provide more clarity about the make-up of this panel. The commenters are making this item out to be partisan, it does not appear the panel is partisan. Here is a list of the panel which appears to be balanced with different SME to add different perspectives http://www.in.gov/activecalendar/EventList.aspx?view=EventDetails&eventidn=138116?formation_id=189603 3. It suggests a by-pass, I do not see where this report suggests another "loop". 4. Henry, based on your kneejerk reaction, we would be better off if you moved to another state unless your post was meant as sarcasm in which case I say Well Done. 5. The article and report actually indicates need to improve rail and port infrastructure in direct contradiction to Shayla commentary. Specifically, recommendation is to consider passenger rail projects... 6. People have a voice with their elected officials. These are suggestions and do not represent "crony capitalism", etc. The report needs to be analyzed and the legislature can decide on priorities and spending. Don't like it, then vote in a new legislature but quit artificially creating issues where there are none! People need to sift through the politics and provide constructive criticism to the process rather than making uninformed comments in a public forum based on misinformation. IBJ should work harder to correct the record in these forums when blatant errors or misrepresentations are made.

  4. Joe ... Marriage is defined in the Bible ... it is mentioned in the Bible often. Marriage is not mentioned once in the US or Indiana Constitution ...

  5. Daniel - Educate me please: what does the Bible have to do with laws? If the government wasn't in the business of marriage to begin with, then it wouldn't have to "define" marriage at all. Marriage could be left as a personal, religious, or otherwise unregulated action, with no ties to taxes, legal status, etc. Then people could marry whomever they want, and all this silliness would go away. Remember to vote Libertarian in November.
