The Indiana Pacers are pleased that the NBA revenue sharing plan reached almost one year ago includes significant changes to the sharing among all 30 NBA teams. As was pointed out in the Nov. 26 IBJ, the Pacers’ amount will likely increase, beginning in 2013; however, the increase in 2013 will be dramatically lower than what IBJ reported.

Ritz aims to protect teachers' unionsRestricted Content

December 1, 2012
J.K. Wall is to be congratulated on his [Nov. 19] exposure of the true Glenda Ritz. Her quote, “Rewriting that waiver is my most important mission,” says it all. It is clear she has no interest in continuing to achieve the education improvements made here under Tony Bennett.

More

Ritz should advocate higher teacher salariesRestricted Content

November 17, 2012
Teachers have the most difficult job in the world. They aren’t paid what they’re worth.” Across Indiana, these words have become cliché. In their guts, Hoosiers know what data has proven—better pay for teachers translates, in the long run, to better outcomes for students.
More

Teachers crave rulesRestricted Content

November 17, 2012
The Bennett/Ritz election was a contest between forward motion and status quo. Daniels and Bennett are pressing the accelerator. Ritz represents a tactically oriented teacher group and will pump the brakes to slow change initiatives.

More

Rusthoven an 'epigone'Restricted Content

November 3, 2012
It is clear that Richard Mourdock is an astringent to the derriere of Peter Rusthoven [Oct. 29 column]. How else does one explain why the luminous Lugar acolyte Rusthoven would attack Mourdock for Mourdock’s cumbersome locution for which he has apologized and clarified?
More

Drum up more flightsRestricted Content

October 27, 2012
I could not agree more—connections to and from Indianapolis [Oct. 22] are totally inadequate.

Drop RusthovenRestricted Content

October 27, 2012
Peter Rusthoven’s columns are horrible. There is no business information in them, just conservative Republican dribble.
More

Hetrick spins, tooRestricted Content

October 27, 2012
Bruce Hetrick’s Oct. 22 column “Spouting off about the all-too-common art of spin” begins by offering the reader his view on how characters in the Broadway play “The Book of Mormon” are adept at spinning falsehoods in the guise of “helping people.” Hetrick provides spinning of his own, personally reviewing the highly irreverent play as hilarious, pant-wetting entertainment.
More

How's Obama workin' for ya?Restricted Content

October 27, 2012
I have avoided writing about any of left-wing author Sheila Kennedy’s opinion pieces because she’s such an easy target. However her [Oct. 22] “Elections have consequence” piece calling Republicans extremist demands a response.
More

Vote to restore balanceRestricted Content

October 27, 2012
Three things have modulated the excesses of unfettered American capitalism since the rise of the Progressive Era in the early 20th century: labor unions, government regulations, and the progressive income tax system. It’s no coincidence that the rise of the American middle class followed.
More

GM, Chrysler didn't need rescueRestricted Content

Sports, arts not rivalsRestricted Content

October 20, 2012
Bill Benner’s [Oct. 15] column on arts versus sports drives home the point of the misguided view that the arts and sports are equal rivals! This column should have appeared on your front page!

  1. It is nice and all that the developer grew up here and lives here, but do you think a company that builds and rehabs cottage-style homes has the chops to develop $150 Million of office, retail, and residential? I'm guessing they will quickly be over their skis and begging the city for even more help... This project should occur organically and be developed by those that can handle the size and scope of something like this as several other posters have mentioned.

  2. It amazes me how people with apparently zero knowledge of free markets or capitalism feel the need to read and post on a business journal website. Perhaps the Daily Worker would suit your interests better. It's definitely more sympathetic to your pro government theft views. It's too bad the Star is so awful as I'm sure you would find a much better home there.

  3. In other cities, expensive new construction projects are announced by real estate developers. In Carmel, they are announced by the local mayor. I am so, so glad I don't live in Carmel's taxbase--did you see that Carmel, a small Midwest suburb, has $500 million in debt?? That's unreal! The mayor thinks he's playing with Lego sets and Monopoly money here! Let these projects develop organically without government/taxpayer backing! Also, from a design standpoint, the whole town of Carmel looks comical. Grand, French-style buildings and promenades, sitting next to tire yards. Who do you guys think you are? Just my POV as a recent transplant to Indy.

  4. GeorgeP, you mention "necessities". Where in the announcement did it say anything about basic essentials like groceries? None of the plans and "vision" have basic essentials listed and nothing has been built. Traffic WILL be a nightmare. There is no east/west road capacity. GeorgeP, you also post on www.carmelchatter.com and your posts have repeatedly been proven wrong. You seem to have a fair amount of inside knowledge. Do you work on the third floor of Carmel City Hal?

  5. I don't know about the commuter buses...but it's a huge joke to see these IndyGo buses with just one or two passengers. Absolutely a disgusting waste of TAXPAYER money. Get some cojones and stop funding them. These (all of them) council members work for you. FIRE THEM!
