Fleeced at the ‘hospital’Restricted Content

April 20, 2013
In the July 9, 2011, IBJ, I warned that employers and patients are paying a steep price for the shift of physician services to hospital outpatient departments. The [April 8] article about physical therapy services is a clear example of this.

I read with great interest [Mickey Maurer’s April 15] column about his prostate cancer experiences.

Misplaced focusRestricted Content

April 20, 2013
The [April 8] story about the Center Township trustee was absolutely incredible.

Mahern got it wrongRestricted Content

April 13, 2013
The [April 1] Forefront column by Louis Mahern discussed a zoning case in the Fletcher Place Neighborhood “called down” by City-County Councilor Jeff Miller. Mahern’s column incorrectly assumes that neighborhood opposition to the project relates to its affordable housing aspect.

Tax cut costs taxpayers?Restricted Content

April 6, 2013
How would IBJ allow John Zody [April 1 Forefront] to write, “The governor’s 10-percent income tax cut, which would cost taxpayers more than a half a billion dollars …”?
More

Iraq column not credibleRestricted Content

April 6, 2013
I read with incredulity Mike Hicks’ [March 25] column on the Iraq war’s “success or failure.”
More

Ban canned huntingRestricted Content

April 6, 2013
The General Assembly is considering legislation that would allow businesses to continue to provide high-paying customers the ability to shoot white-tailed deer within fenced enclosures.

Healthy Indiana Plan has too little capacityRestricted Content

As a leader in the United Methodist faith tradition, I and our church are called to reach out to the poor and society’s marginalized.

‘Wrogn’ againRestricted Content

March 30, 2013
I enjoyed the [March 18] Viewpoint “It’s inevitable that plans go wrogn.”
More

Biologics misunderstoodRestricted Content

March 30, 2013
In “Profits at center of biosimilars debate” [March 18], the author refers to attempted copies of biotech medicines as “generic biotech medicines.” This demonstrates a fundamental misunderstanding of biosimilars.
More

Bill would help educationRestricted Content

March 23, 2013
I write in support of Senate Bill 207, which reinstates in-state tuition rates to undocumented students who were enrolled in a state college or university in 2011.

Drug testing downsideRestricted Content

March 16, 2013
Sheila Suess Kennedy hit the nail on the head with her [March 11] column on drug testing for welfare recipients.
More

Ulterior motive at WFYI?Restricted Content

March 16, 2013
If National Public Radio [March 4] really wanted to draw more people to the terrestrial radio station, and maybe WFYI’s website, the billboard message would read, for example, “Poetry-writing mechanics listen to NPR on 90.1 FM, WFYI.
More

Service matches students with meaningful internshipsRestricted Content

March 16, 2013
Bruce Hetrick made a great point in his [March 11] column “Ten tips to help those seeking jobs or internships,” about how much stronger a résumé becomes when an internship experience is featured front and center.
More

Tax break, rebate laudedRestricted Content

March 9, 2013
I have a message for Mr. Madison, Mr. Odle and Ms. Leighty [March 4 Forefront]: If you don’t want your rebate, return it, but let me keep mine.
More

Truth hasn't changedRestricted Content

March 9, 2013
Peter Rusthoven’s [Feb. 18 ] column “‘Relevance’ is irrelevant” could not have been more on point. The world view, as seen through liberal media, is that not just the Roman Catholic Church but Christianity in general needs to “become more relevant to an increasingly secular world.
More

Sequestration piece spot-onRestricted Content

March 9, 2013
While I don’t always agree with [Greg Morris], he was spot on with this [Feb. 25] column. Excellent job on this huge issue for the future of our America. ____________ Albert Wurster Noblesville

Take the federal moneyRestricted Content

March 9, 2013
There are good reasons to feel optimistic about the changes taking place as a result of health care reform. More people will have access to insurance through health insurance marketplaces, and many will be able to take advantage of tax credits to afford this new coverage.

Don't subsidize Indianapolis Motor SpeedwayRestricted Content

March 2, 2013
I seriously question the advisability of our state, city or county providing monetary support to sports organizations, and certainly Indianapolis Motor Speedway [Feb. 18].
More

Hempstead needs a gripRestricted Content

March 2, 2013
I surely hope Sarah Hempstead [Feb. 25] was joking when she suggested we ask anybody about Indianapolis—inferring, I would guess, a blank stare.
More

Put citizens firstRestricted Content

March 2, 2013
Are there not any really decent people to run for Congress [Maurer column, Feb. 18]? Too many of these candidates have the ability to speak smoothly, show an engaging personality and make a good impression. The real essence of their character is not revealed until they are caught taking advantage of their slick-lip shenanigans.
More

Morris column hit homeRestricted Content

March 2, 2013
I enjoyed Greg Morris’ [Feb. 25] column. However, I wish he had taken it one step further to explain the absurdity of these so called “sequestration” cuts as they relate to baseline budgeting.
More

Marijuana possession shouldn't be a crimeRestricted Content

February 23, 2013
In response to Deborah Daniels’ [Feb. 4] column regarding legalization of marijuana, everyone can agree that we should protect children from harm—there is no debate there.
More

Radio's real problemRestricted Content

February 16, 2013
As a former radio personality (NPR and later WHAS-AM 840 in Louisville and other stations) and broadcast operations manager and intern supervisor at the University of Louisville), I continue to shake my head at Emmis and boss Jeff Smulyan’s total swivet with cell phone operators for refusing to put radio tuners on their phones or switch them on if they exist.
More

Buses, yes, but no railRestricted Content

February 9, 2013
I support fully the improvement of the bus system in the metro area [Morris column, Jan. 28]. It is a necessity and the responsibility of government to provide access to those who need this service efficiently and cost effectively.

  1. Why not take some time to do some research before traveling to that Indiana town or city, and find the ones that are no smoking either inside, or have a patio? People like yourself are just being selfish, and unnecessarily trying to take away all indoor venues that smokers can enjoy themselves at. Last time I checked, it is still a free country, and businesses do respond to market pressure and will ban smoking, if there's enough demand by customers for it(i.e. Linebacker Lounge in South Bend, and Rack and Helen's in New Haven, IN, outside of Fort Wayne). Indiana law already unnecessarily forced restaurants with a bar area to be no smoking, so why not support those restaurants that were forced to ban smoking against their will? Also, I'm always surprised at the number of bars that chose to ban smoking on their own, in non-ban parts of Indiana I'll sometimes travel into. Whiting, IN(just southeast of Chicago) has at least a few bars that went no smoking on their own accord, and despite no selfish government ban forcing those bars to make that move against their will! I'd much rather have a balance of both smoking and non-smoking bars, rather than a complete bar smoking ban that'll only force more bars to close their doors. And besides IMO, there are much worser things to worry about, than cigarette smoke inside a bar. If you feel a bar is too smoky, then simply walk out and take your business to a different bar!

  2. As other states are realizing the harm in jailing offenders of marijuana...Indiana steps backwards into the script of Reefer Madness. Well...you guys voted for your Gov...up to you to vote him out. Signed, Citizen of Florida...the next state to have medical marijuana.

  3. It's empowering for this niche community to know that they have an advocate on their side in case things go awry. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lrst9VXVKfE

  4. Apparently the settlement over Angie's List "bundling" charges hasn't stopped the practice! My membership is up for renewal, and I'm on my third email trying to get a "basic" membership rather than the "bundled" version they're trying to charge me for. Frustrating!!

  5. Well....as a vendor to both of these builders I guess I have the right to comment. Davis closed his doors with integrity.He paid me every penny he owed me. Estridge,STILL owes me thousands and thousands of dollars. The last few years of my life have been spent working 2 jobs, paying off the suppliers I used to work on Estridge jobs and just struggling to survive. Shame on you Paul...and shame on you IBJ! Maybe you should have contacted the hundreds of vendors that Paul stiffed. I'm sure your "rises from the ashes" spin on reporting would have contained true stories of real people who have struggled to find work and pay of their debts (something that Paul didn't even attempt to do).
