Reduce government role in health care

September 5, 2009
Bruce Hetrick’s patronizing and dismissive reference [in his Aug. 24 column] to the idea of death panels (“There is, of course, no such clause or intent in any health-reform legislation”) is insulting to any reader who has followed the debate over health care reform.

Investing columnist needs new topics

September 5, 2009

Council faced unpleasant choiceRestricted Content

August 29, 2009
[In the Aug. 17 editorial] IBJ accuses elected officials of making decisions based on partisanship rather than good judgment. This superficial pronouncement of the reasons behind Proposal 285’s vote tally lacks thoughtful evaluation of why councilors cast their votes the way they did at the August 10 council meeting.

August 29, 2009

August 24, 2009
Medical technology has taken us to the point where we can sustain life almost indefinitely, but not maintain the quality of that life, nor the dignity of the person.

Indiana is lucky to have toll leaseRestricted Content

August 17, 2009
The facts are that toll increases are strictly limited in the contract and cars using electronic tolling have had no increase and are still paying the $4.65 toll rate set in 1985, one of the lowest per-mile tolls in the nation.

Higher-ed chief Lubbers is up to taskRestricted Content

Susan Bayh has major conflicts

August 10, 2009

August 10, 2009
Local Initiatives Support Corp. wanted to take a moment to second the ideas expressed last week in AIA Indianapolis President Sanford Garner’s Viewpoint column.

Officials should redevelop prison property

August 3, 2009
After outcry from the community, the plan to turn the current Women’s Prison on the near east side into a work release facility for male prisoners was modified to make it barely palatable. However, there’s a larger point that shouldn’t be overlooked.
More

Energy act will hurt Indiana's economy

August 3, 2009
A deeply concerning piece of legislation has just recently slipped through the [U.S.] House of Representatives. Although the American Clean Energy and Security Act has an appealing name and is created to improve our environment, in actuality, its passing through the Senate will cause dire problems for Hoosiers.

This year will be our 18th year as IPS parents. My husband and I are college graduates, upper-middle class. He is employed full time and I’m self-employed part-time. We chose to stay in IPS and try to make a difference for the many classmates that have no one rooting for them at home.

IPS was winner in state budgetRestricted Content

July 20, 2009
IBJ is completely off base to suggest that the new state budget was “balanced on the backs of poor children.” As has been true of every state budget for the last two decades, students in Indianapolis Public Schools and other urban districts are actually the biggest winners in this budget.
More

Area cities have curb appealRestricted Content

July 20, 2009
I agree with [Morton Marcus’ June 15 column] on urban entryways. I just wanted to point out that two of our small towns in Indianapolis have done a good job of making entryways into their community attractive.
