Letters to the Editor

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.
More

Forefront one-sided

March 12, 2011
I was disappointed and frankly astounded at the incredible lack of balance and clear anti-Republican, anti-conservative message delivered in the Feb. 28 Forefront.
More

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.
More

State should go smoke-free

March 12, 2011
Less than a month ago, it seemed almost certain that Indiana would join the ranks of two dozen other states and the District of Columbia—including our neighbors Illinois, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin—in enacting a statewide, comprehensive smoke-free-air law.

Horse investment not 'shameful'

March 5, 2011
Thank you very much for your accurate [Feb. 28 editorial] on the Indiana horse industry.
More

Let's keep shrinking local government

March 5, 2011
I found Morton Marcus’ [Feb. 21 column], “Rethink government consolidation now” provocative and in alignment with my thinking.
More

Education bills deserve scrutiny

March 5, 2011
In “Tough love for public education” [a column in the Feb. 14 issue, Greg Morris makes] several excellent points.
More

Governor will damage public schools

March 5, 2011
Things are getting crazy as state resources diminish. Our governor is clearly out of touch with reality. He wants to abolish the 1:600 ratio for elementary school counselors to students on top of drastically cutting back state-supported mental-health programs.
More

Armageddon does not lie ahead

February 19, 2011
We at City Securities Corp. disagree with those predicting Armageddon. It is our belief that the vast majority of municipal issuers nationally are in sound financial condition.
More

Defense industry loss

February 19, 2011
What IBJ fails to disclose are the 14,580 permanent jobs lost in Indiana in our defense industry over the past 30 years.
More

WellPoint exec's complaint is ironic

February 12, 2011
A survey last year by the Center for American Progress Action Fund found that double-digit hikes were implemented or were pending in at least 11 other states among the 14 where WellPoint’s Blue Cross Blue Shield companies are active.
More

Brokers work as difference-makers

February 12, 2011
Our industry is poised to change, but you missed what’s happening not only in our firm every day, but with our peers in the field that have long since fought against the natural trends of our industry in order to provide value and create solid outcomes—to be difference-makers.
More

Tobacco subsidies support smoking

February 5, 2011
I am usually amused and even sometimes intellectually stimulated by Bruce Hetrick’s opinion pieces. However, his piece (Jan. 24) drawing parallels between the tragic shootings in Tucson and tobacco related deaths is over the top.
More

Anti-smoking column went too far

February 5, 2011
I do not think I have ever read a more disgustingly disrespectful column as the one printed in the Jan. 24-30 issue, written by Bruce Hetrick.
More

We keep taxes low at our peril

January 29, 2011
As we have seen our already poor-quality educational system and libraries cut every year, while raising expectations—it is darkly ironic that the same politicians are making these contradictory decisions.
More

Renn adds value

January 29, 2011
Congrats to IBJ for publishing the article, “Indianapolis must reinvent itself—again” by Aaron Renn [in the Jan. 10 Forefront].
More

Volunteer today

January 29, 2011
Thank you for [Greg Morris’ Jan. 17 column]. Like a lot of adults, I’ve had “volunteer” on my to-do list for quite some time, and that time just never seems to come.
More

Children need broad education

January 22, 2011
I applaud Bruce Hetrick’s column (Jan. 10, “Why this public-school baby fears school reform”) for its keen observations about the value of education in the arts and humanities.
More

Criticism of IEDC was off-point

January 22, 2011
Professor [Morton] Marcus’ warning about the perceived under-appreciation of local economic development organizations [in his Jan. 10 column] places a spotlight on the importance of these groups and those who lead them.
More

Should teachers be unionized?

January 22, 2011
[In response to Teresa Meredith’s Jan. 10 column in Forefront] I would like to know, if collective bargaining has all of those benefits, why are our public schools performing so badly that a great percentage of the students do not graduate?
More

Union backer has vested interest

January 22, 2011
The reason [Teresa] Meredith is so gung-ho regarding her union stance is she has so much to lose: 18 years into her profession, vice president of the Indiana State Teachers Association, her pension and benefits.
More

Some new ideas on education reform

January 15, 2011
We spend too much on brick and mortar and administration and too little on the classroom experience.
More

Leave fund alone

January 8, 2011
In reading the editorial, “Let’s consider tapping bank fund,” in the Jan. 3 issue, several corrections are appropriate.
More

PDIF has served its purpose

January 8, 2011
The Public Deposit Insurance Fund, Indiana’s state-based backup to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., has served its purpose for more than 70 years, and efforts by some Indiana lawmakers to raid this fund are misguided (“Daniels, bankers may spar,” Dec. 27).
More

Civility, anyone?

January 1, 2011
Respect for others and civil discourse has taken a back seat to name-calling.
