Kennedy criticized wrong interest groupRestricted Content

September 13, 2014
Sheila Kennedy again shows her liberal bias in her [Sept. 8] commentary on civics. She complains about the lack of knowledge of “we the people” about our government and our electoral processes, but decides to tie it to political contributions.

Sticking it to commutersRestricted Content

September 6, 2014
I found [Sheila Kennedy’s Aug. 11 column] to be incredibly compelling. For years, I worked in Louisville, Ky., while living in Indiana, and for each of those years I was required to pay into a sinking fund (often referred to by commuters as a stinking fund).
More

Study Indianapolis criminal justice centerRestricted Content

August 30, 2014
The IBJ is correct [Aug. 18 editorial]. There are too many unanswered questions about the proposed half-billion-dollar criminal justice center and the little-tested public/private partnership (P3) contracting model under which a private consortium would design, build, finance, maintain and operate the facility in return for predetermined annual payments.

How to upgrade International Motor SpeedwayRestricted Content

IMS should change to accommodate its fansRestricted Content

August 9, 2014
As a transplant to Indy, I don’t have the history with attending races at Indianapolis Motor Speedway [Aug. 4]. I have been to my fair share of races (and was even a Yellow Shirt volunteer for a couple years), but I am not a diehard attendee.

Local WFYI programs largely free of biasRestricted Content

July 26, 2014
Because I have served as chief programming officer for both WIBC-AM radio and later WFYI-FM public radio, the argument over a biased point of view of programming [Kalscheur letter July 21] is a great interest.
More

More taxes to fund copsRestricted Content

July 19, 2014
The idea of more police is a great idea. However, the idea to take away the homestead exemption to fund it shows how out of touch the politicians are. Removing the exemption only places the onus on homeowners.
More

WFYI isn’t unbiasedRestricted Content

July 19, 2014
Anthony Schoettle’s [June 23] article “Less news, more talk” bemoans the loss of Steve Simpson and states, “With Simpson’s departure, the only local station that still employs non-opinion-oriented news hosts is WFYI.”

WIBC slides further into ‘have it your way’ newsRestricted Content

June 28, 2014
News is supposed to bring us facts even if they challenge our preconceptions. As two towering statesmen—Democrat Daniel Patrick Moynihan and Republican James R. Schlesinger—said, we are all entitled to our own opinions, but not our own facts.

  5. Problem: most of the people responding to this article don't know about this service AT ALL! Why? Lack of awareness. This isn't IndyGo. This is CIRTA: might as well be the mattress company because they are asleep at the wheel - something like 3 directors over the last year? Playing with federal grant money is great! This "region" wants commuter rail service, has spent MILLIONS on Transportation studies yet can't even support a commuter bus line? This is largely for suburban riders to get to downtown - not for "service people to work in our hotels and restaurants" ! Get your head out of your backside!! These are professionals, students etc. that don't want to fight traffic, save some money on parking, gas, stress.... if CIRTA would put their federal money into widely promoting the sevive to Greenwood, Fishers & Carmel instead of finding directors and studies - this would be a successful service. Our family uses(d) it daily for the last several years - but the recent uncertainty & now unreliability due to cuts from Carmel has been a problem. Now, costs us an additional $350/month for gas & parking ( $4200/year) plus vehicle wear, service, environmental impact ... YES - this REGION needs this this type of service in order to keep growing and getting the people it needs to fill skilled positions in downtown Indianapolis. Think outside of your own car !!!
