Shale gas will support inexpensive electricity

November 30, 2013
As stated in the “Natural gas dilemma” article [Nov. 18], there is increased demand for natural gas in the electric energy market in Indiana and across the country. However, I take exception to the theme that this increased demand will drive volatility in the market and harm Hoosier electric and gas customers.

Dang! I just read the [Nov. 11] IBJ, as I have done every Monday since forever (always reading Benner’s column first).

Conserve water, tooRestricted Content

November 9, 2013
IBJ’s Nov. 2 editorial “Study water needs while there’s time” should have noted the value of conservation in meeting future needs. Available supply should be carefully stewarded and not “promiscuously pumped,” as one water expert recently put it.

Sheila Suess Kennedy [Nov. 4] attempts to make a correlation between the 5.5 million people of Denmark with the 313 million people of the United States. Then she mentions Denmark has high levels of homogeneity.

Thanks for the budgetRestricted Content

October 19, 2013
For many years, including my time at Indiana Black Expo, I have worked to bring people together for the betterment of our city. I’m grateful that our City-County Council and mayor put aside partisan differences to pass a budget.

Let market successes dictate energy sourcesRestricted Content

October 19, 2013
I was disheartened to see Zach Adamson’s [Sept. 30] Viewpoint that naively believes we can replace the Harding Street Indianapolis Power & Light Co. plant with renewable energy sources.

Global Caravan chief has solid backgroundRestricted Content

October 5, 2013
We appreciated the [Sept. 30] coverage the IBJ presented of Global Caravan Technologies. As the capital organization coordinating investment in GCT, we do wish to observe that Charles Hoefer had been involved in the management of other successful and unrelated ventures prior to joining Earthbound.

Rusthoven pegged Obama

September 28, 2013
I enjoyed Peter Rusthoven’s [Sept. 16] column “A president out of his league,” as it nicely characterized both the missteps and blatant lies coming from the Obama administration’s Keystone Cops handling of the crisis in Syria.

Radio thrives on local

September 28, 2013
As someone who has worked at or with radio stations in Indianapolis as well as mid-sized and smaller markets across the state, I agree with most of the points regarding the strong local strategy in use today by the successful broadcasters in those markets [Sept. 2].
More

Stick to business reportingRestricted Content

September 21, 2013
I’m puzzled by your [Sept. 16] stories “The Brain Drain is a Myth” and “Too Few Jobs for Science, Tech Graduates” and their excessively academic focus on the very practical issue of why there are too few Hoosiers working in high-paying jobs to power our state’s future.

Schools and health, tooRestricted Content

September 21, 2013
Wouldn’t it be great if a city’s bid to host the Super Bowl [Sept. 9] took into account the quality of the city’s public schools; the overall health of its residents; how the city treats the homeless; air and water quality; a living wage for it hospitality workers; access to grocery stores; the age of its sewers; ability to manage natural disasters (like floods); safe streets, and so on?

Lincoln’s RepublicansRestricted Content

September 14, 2013
If Abe Lincoln were asked about the proposed legislation to amend Indiana’s Constitution to ban gay marriage [Maurer, Sept. 2], he would respond as he has in the past: “Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.”

September 14, 2013
You got it, brother, [Maurer, Sept. 2] except we need to mount up our pickups and ATVs, load up our Glocks, .45s and AK-47s and lay waste to those idiots who want to marry whomever they please.

Purdue fortunate to have Daniels as presidentRestricted Content

September 14, 2013
Your [Sept. 2] cover story on Purdue President Mitch Daniels referenced “skepticism” from certain camps within the Purdue faculty. In the article, professor David Sanders was quoted as a basis for that skepticism.

J.K. Wall’s [Sept. 2] article points out that Mitch Daniels is trying to “create new ways to measure student learning, graduate success and overall academic quality at Purdue” and that “Such a system of measurements would help students, parents and donors choose schools based on the best bang for the buck … ”

  1. The Walgreens did not get a lot of traffic. It was not located on the corner of the intersection, and not really visible from Emerson. Meanwhile the CVS there is huge and right on the corner. I am guessing a lot of people drove by a million times and never knew the Walgreens was there. Although, with the new Walmart market going in, that area could really see a lot of increase in traffic soon.

  2. You folks don't have a clue. There is a legal way to enter this country and to get aid. This left unchecked could run us to ruin quickly. I also heard that 'supporters' were getting major $$ to take them in? Who's monitoring this and guess who pays the bill? I support charitable organizations... but this is NOT the way to do it!

  3. Apparently at some time before alcohol has been served at the fair. The problem is that beer or wine used to be a common drink for people before soft drinks and was not thought to be that unusual. Since many folks now only drink to see how much they can drink or what kind of condition they can end up in it becomes more problematic. Go to Europe and its no big deal just as if you had sodas of milk to drink everyday. Its using common sense that is lacking now days.

  4. To address the epic failure of attracting race fans to both the Indy 500 and Brickyard 400 would take too much of my time to write. Bottom line Boles is clueless and obviously totally out of touch with the real paying fan base. I see nothing but death spin coming for the Brickyard, just like Indy. Get somebody in a place of power that understands what race fans want.

  5. I am a race fan through & through. It doesn't matter if it's Indy cars or Nascar. I love a great race. I go to several other tracks each year and you can see the entire track. I know Indy has tradition, but fans want to see the entire race. I sit in the Penthouse, am almost 60 years old, and would like to see a better TV screen in turn 1 so you can see the entire race. Then I think Indy needs to install an escalator so us old folks can make it up to the Penthouse and down again if we want more options to purchase food and drinks. Just a race fans opinion. Lights won't make the race any better, but you might be able to see the TV better at night. Turn 1's screen needs replaced with a better and bigger screen.
