Getting out the voteRestricted Content

September 22, 2012
In his [Aug. 27] column, Bruce Hetrick challenged us—the opinion leaders of the Indianapolis community—to do more to encourage voter participation, and he has good reason to be concerned. According to the Indiana Civic Health Index, the Hoosier State ranks 48th in voter turnout and 43rd in voter registration. Some might be disappointed in our ranking, but I see this as a call to action.

The 'USSR-ADA'Restricted Content

September 8, 2012
Thank you for [Benner’s Sept. 3] commentary on Lance Armstrong. I could not believe my ears when Travis Tygart of the United States Anti-Doping Agency announced something of the sort of “since Lance Armstrong will not prove himself innocent, we must find him guilty...”

In the same [Aug. 27 Hetrick column] that tells the reader how “…citizens of third-world countries line up for miles, hours and even days to cast ballots…” he also tells the reader that votes in the United States are being suppressed because we close the polls at 6:00?

Correcting KahloRestricted Content

August 25, 2012

Cut Pacers subsidiesRestricted Content

August 25, 2012
Bill Herrick’s op-ed “Run government like a business” [Aug. 20] called for government to take a less-active role in the affairs of business and to run itself like a business. I couldn’t agree more.

Benner again misses markRestricted Content

August 11, 2012
Once again, Bill Benner [July 30] misses a key point in the NCAA’s handling of Penn State when he applauds the NCAA’s “courage and swift response” in his hypothetical reaction to it being his son subjected to sodomy in the Penn State locker room showers.
