‘Illinoyed’ for good reasonRestricted Content

May 3, 2014
In his [April 28 Viewpoint], Shaw Friedman apparently tried his hand at fiction writing. I prefer non-fiction, and I’m confident my fellow Hoosiers will join me in celebrating the factual victories Indiana has earned that other states are noticing—especially Illinois.
More

Growth follows safetyRestricted Content

April 26, 2014
Greg Andrews’ [April 14] column “Kokomo, like Indy, trying to sway suburbanites to move in” mentions mayors of Kokomo and Indianapolis wanting to convince north side suburbanites to move to their respective cities to increase their tax bases. Both mayors stressed the need to make their communities more desirable as places to live, not just work.

Don’t sweep Turner stench under the rugRestricted Content

April 26, 2014
Julia Vaughn’s [April 21 Forefront column] has added credence evidenced by the “Turner’s new play” piece in the April 21 edition.

Plenty of credit for bike progressRestricted Content

April 19, 2014
I would like to thank the IBJ’s [April 14] editorial writers for acknowledging the explosion of Indy’s bicycling culture and amenities in the seven years since I took office, but I cannot in good conscience accept the credit single-handedly.
More

Bike legacy? Really?Restricted Content

April 19, 2014
Is [bike-share] worthy of an editorial [April 14]? A substantive accomplishment would be getting a large number of commuters to use bicycles rather than cars.
More

Lawyer stirs up troubleRestricted Content

April 19, 2014
After reading the lunacy involved in the [April 14] article concerning Richard Bell, I’m reminded of one of my favorite jokes:
More

An alternate plan to repair streetsRestricted Content

April 12, 2014
Mayor Ballard is criss-crossing Indy promoting Rebuild Indy 2.0 to make street, road, curb and sidewalk improvements. I agree; we need to make critical investment in our infrastructure. And quickly.
More

Kudos for MorrisRestricted Content

April 5, 2014
I was really pleased to see Greg Morris’ [March 24] comments on Jim Irsay’s situation. Morris put in proper perspective a person’s worth and contribution versus one’s behavior.
More

Support for IrsayRestricted Content

April 5, 2014
Thank you so much for a caring [Morris column, March 24] showing, and indeed seeking, support for Jim Irsay, the man.
More

Business model, schools don’t mixRestricted Content

April 5, 2014
I have long said the business model cannot work in schools, especially when the current reform format is in place [March 17 Guy Viewpoint].
More

Get behind IrsayRestricted Content

March 29, 2014
Bravo, and well said on “Jim Irsay deserves our support” [March 24 Morris column].
More

Support for Irsay has its limitationsRestricted Content

March 29, 2014
Anyone who has a problem with drug or alcohol addiction has my empathy and support—right up until they endanger my life or the lives of others by choosing to get behind the wheel of a vehicle [March 24 Morris column].
More

Ed Martin competition feared by other dealersRestricted Content

March 29, 2014
I was interested to see the [March 17] article concerning the Toyota dealerships’ “turf altercations” shall we call them.
More

Rethink agriculture

March 22, 2014
I appreciate the recognition that there are alternatives to industrialized agriculture [March 17 editorial], but I encourage IBJ not to fall into the trap of “feeding the world.
More

Locals focus on real jobs

March 22, 2014
As a site consultant for over eight years, I worked for those “footloose businesses that could locate anywhere” Michael Hicks talks about in his [March 17] column “Focus on real job creation.” We helped these companies choose the best states and communities for their expansion projects.
More

Miller failed Brownsburg

March 22, 2014
I am writing to express my disappointment with state Sen. Pete Miller’s sponsorship and shepherding of Senate Bill 118 through the legislative process. The bill guts the tax increment finance district Brownsburg relies heavily on to fund current and future infrastructure.
More

Irsay's behavior is personal

March 22, 2014
I agree that one should hold owners, co-founders and CEOs to higher standards, but Jim Irsay’s driving while intoxicated charge is personal, not business, meaning the Colts should not be penalized by the NFL one iota.
More

Think twice before deregulating utilitiesRestricted Content

March 15, 2014
For decades, our state has enjoyed low, stable electricity prices due in large measure to using Indiana’s abundant natural resource—coal. However, federal environmental mandates have eroded that advantage as our electric utilities have had to make expensive investments to comply with stricter rules.
More

Downtown justice complex would spur city’s centerRestricted Content

March 8, 2014
The stated preferred location for the new criminal justice center, 6600 Kentucky Ave., is attractive on a first-cost basis because it is bare farm ground. However, looking at the benefits of this project long-term, this site would be a mistake.
More

Downtown best location for new justice centerRestricted Content

March 1, 2014
Thanks for your thoughtful [Feb. 17] editorial on the proposed locations for the criminal justice center.
More

Justice center could go on Citizens propertyRestricted Content

March 1, 2014
If one drives around Center Township, one can find several possible locations.
More

Hooray for pragmatismRestricted Content

March 1, 2014
If gay marriage were allowed in Indiana [Feb. 17 Maurer column], there would be no increase in gay porn at AMC Theaters, no mandatory attendance at gay weddings, no straight people suddenly turning gay, no visible signs anywhere of any change—because there already are gay couples.
More

Legislature failing to protect consumersRestricted Content

March 1, 2014
The legislative response in the [Feb. 17] IBJ article about possible deregulation of retail electric rates leaves a lot to be desired.
More

Fight anti-Semitism with great leadershipRestricted Content

February 22, 2014
Anti-Semitism has been in remission, but it’s not dead, and Mickey Maurer points that out very compellingly from time to time [Feb. 3 Maurer column].

  1. I am also a "vet" of several Cirque shows and this one left me flat. It didn't have the amount of acrobatic stunts as the others that I have seen. I am still glad that I went to it and look forward to the next one but I put Varekai as my least favorite.

  2. Looking at the two companies - in spite of their relative size to one another -- Ricker's image is (by all accounts) pretty solid and reputable. Their locations are clean, employees are friendly and the products they offer are reasonably priced. By contrast, BP locations are all over the place and their reputation is poor, especially when you consider this is the same "company" whose disastrous oil spill and their response was nothing short of irresponsible should tell you a lot. The fact you also have people who are experienced in franchising saying their system/strategy is flawed is a good indication that another "spill" has occurred and it's the AM-PM/Ricker's customers/company that are having to deal with it.

  3. Daniel Lilly - Glad to hear about your points and miles. Enjoy Wisconsin and Illinois. You don't care one whit about financial discipline, which is why you will blast the "GOP". Classic liberalism.

  4. Isn't the real reason the terrain? The planners under-estimated the undulating terrain, sink holes, karst features, etc. This portion of the route was flawed from the beginning.

  5. You thought no Indy was bad, how's no fans working out for you? THe IRl No direct competition and still no fans. Hey George Family, spend another billion dollars, that will fix it.
