Help our kids pursue degrees

September 4, 2010
Recent columns from Mickey Maurer (“Even CEOs need mentors,” Aug. 9) and Bruce Hetrick (“How to make the recession last forever,” Aug. 21) underscore important (and related) ideas, namely that everyone needs help and guidance to succeed, and that success in postsecondary education among our children is no longer an option.

August 28, 2010

Museums can't change canal alone

GM deal promising for local automaker

August 21, 2010
Now that Bright Automotive has announced a strategic partnership [with] General Motors, we think IBJ should reconsider the title it gave a recent article about the company (Aug 2, “Losing power?”). We’d suggest “Powering up!”

Don't make hires too quickly

July 31, 2010
As a downtown resident of over 30 years I feel that it is a privilege to use the facilities that we as a city have created downtown. Black Expo has violated that privilege.

Poverty doesn't explain shooting

Fieldhouse could have life without Pacers

July 24, 2010
The IBJ and others keep repeating that, should the Pacers leave, the city would be stuck with paying $14 [million]-$18 million a year in fieldhouse operating costs. Are you all assuming the facility will sit vacant? Come on.
More

Keep government hands off of Internet

July 24, 2010
Tim Altom, in his July 19 column, replays the tired populist argument in favor of Net Neutrality, while furthering the myth that government regulation magically makes things “fair.”

  1. Yes sir keep cashing those 300K a year checks direct to IMS, while millions disappear from the teams like Rahal's. Guess there wasn't enough ka- ching going around to keep Sarah Fisher in business without their "merger". LOL._____.Meanwhile back in Realville the series with the "best racing in the world" drew what appeared to be about 5000 live spectators ( and probably 1500 of those Target "freebies", and was beaten in the ratings by a series that reportedly consists of "parades" and aired while most people are still sleeping. That will generate those big ka-chings for sure. :-). But, hey, as long as the Speedway gets the cash who gives a damn about the teams?

  3. If I could actually get the prices...I would do this on my own. We need laws that force provides to publish the costs they will charge. Everyone else gives you the price in advance...except hospitals.

  4. I was under the impression that fencing is not allowed on a front yard and that on a corner, both sides are considered "front" yards, therefore can't be fenced without a variance. Also impedes the visibility for drivers at the intersection. Am I understanding this correctly? Might be why a fence was not included in the plans and a request for a variance will have to be made?.

  5. I was a big fan of Cowards and Carrots, which I got a chance to see at the show. It's currently on Kickstarter, but the designer also put out What's He Building in There last year, which got a fair amount of buzz.
