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 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.

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.”

Indiana needs film incentives

July 12, 2014
The recent opening of the motion picture “The Fault in Our Stars,” based on the novel by Indianapolis’ own John Green, has led to a re-examination of Indiana’s film incentive policy.

Autistic children still denied benefitsRestricted Content

July 5, 2014
Imagine your child had a chronic condition requiring on-going treatment, like diabetes, epilepsy or cystic fibrosis, and every six months you had to fight for weeks in order to continue medical treatment, even though your child’s entire clinical team and physicians agree that treatment is medically necessary.

Moves to improve Americans’ incomeRestricted Content

June 28, 2014
Burn both the federal and state individual income tax codes and give each income-receiving American citizen a $50,000 standard deduction while keeping current dependent exemptions.

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.

Scales shouldn’t quit Meadows TIF projectRestricted Content

June 28, 2014
As public servants, it is our job to serve the public, not pick unnecessary fights.

Support for ScalesRestricted Content

June 28, 2014
Scales is the perfect councilor and sets a very high standard.
More

Solidly conservativeRestricted Content

June 28, 2014
I favor lower taxes, strong morality and work ethics, family values and an ability to defend my family—all hallmarks of extremists.
More

Scales was pilloriedRestricted Content

June 21, 2014
The [June 16] front page story about Councilor Christine Scales was very disappointing. It seems to me that what is missing at virtually all political levels are individuals who will in fact stand upon principles. Despite partisan bickering in the council, the city administration—Republican or Democrat—eventually seems to get what it wants.

Gregg’s priorities faultyRestricted Content

June 21, 2014
John Gregg [June 16 Forefront] says Republicans are being Chicken Little because they want to do something rational like stopping spending more than we have.
More

Anthem works with autismRestricted Content

June 21, 2014
The tone of the [June 16] story “Insurance changes put state’s autism industry on edge” implies that an adversarial relationship exists between the autism community and insurers, including Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. In fact, the opposite is true.
More

Rusthoven disparages conservative trendRestricted Content

June 21, 2014
While I have the greatest respect and admiration for Peter Rusthoven’s public service under President Reagan, I take issue with his June 9 Taking Issue column. It almost sounded as if Rusthoven leans Democrat!
More

Voters should do their jobsRestricted Content

June 21, 2014
State Sen. Jim Smith claims in his [June 2] letter to the editor that Doug Masson missed most of the story regarding the legislation to repeal the 17th Amendment.

Healthy Indiana Plan will improve careRestricted Content

June 14, 2014
Little Red Door Cancer Agency would like to express its support for the expansion of health coverage to hundreds of thousands of Hoosiers through HIP 2.0.

Stay open to other viewsRestricted Content

June 7, 2014
Bruce Hetrick’s [May 26 Viewpoint] on living and learning in silos not only is something that I completely agree with, but I found myself having the same exact conversation with clients and friends.
More

More women needed in IBJ news sectionsRestricted Content

June 7, 2014
Most weeks, I flip through IBJ and ponder why I see so few female faces pictured in the news sections. There are plenty of female faces in the People section. Surely some of them have something newsworthy to say?
More

Replace Delph with FordRestricted Content

June 7, 2014
As a resident new to Indiana, I have been troubled by news reports pertaining to state Sen. Mike Delph. His Twitter rants and public statements to media were published repeatedly, but there was nothing newsworthy about them.
More

Repeal 17th Amendment to restore balanceRestricted Content

May 31, 2014
This year, I authored legislation that would have rescinded Indiana’s approval of the 17th Amendment. The 17th Amendment, adopted in 1913, requires U.S. senators to be elected by popular vote rather than by state legislatures. Doug Masson [May 19 Forefront] argued that this would be a bad idea, but he missed most of the story.

Kennedy demonized makers and producers

May 24, 2014

Sheila Suess Kennedy’s [May 19] column is downright scary in light of anti-Semitic history. Jews were demonized with the same words she uses in her column to disparage 1 percenters: “They are disproportionately the manipulators and rent-seekers, speculators and financiers—not the producers, entrepreneurs or ‘makers’ many believe themselves to be.”

Shift Super Bowl vigor to other big ideas

Bravo to the Super Bowl committee for a valiant and brilliant effort despite considerable odds.

Loves Uber, LyftRestricted Content

May 17, 2014
I needed to get downtown the other day. My Uber driver was friendly, had classical music going, and it turned out I was going to one of his favorite places!
More

Indiana on right trackRestricted Content

May 17, 2014
Shaw Friedman writes in his [April 29 Viewpoint] that “tax cuts undermine prosperity” and laments the move to cut business taxes over the past decade of Republican leadership. I suspect that the governmental entities’ prosperity will be undermined but maybe not the entire state’s.
More

No place to hideRestricted Content

May 17, 2014
I am definitely a free speech advocate, even if the opinion being expressed is reprehensible [May 5 Lopresti column].

  1. Of what value is selling alcoholic beverages to State Fair patrons when there are many families with children attending. Is this the message we want to give children attending and participating in the Fair, another venue with alooholic consumption onsite. Is this to promote beer and wine production in the state which are great for the breweries and wineries, but where does this end up 10-15 years from now, lots more drinkers for the alcoholic contents. If these drinks are so important, why not remove the alcohol content and the flavor and drink itself similar to soft drinks would be the novelty, not the alcoholic content and its affects on the drinker. There is no social or material benefit from drinking alcoholic beverages, mostly people want to get slightly or highly drunk.

  2. I did;nt know anyone in Indiana could count- WHY did they NOT SAY just HOW this would be enforced? Because it WON;T! NOW- with that said- BIG BROTHER is ALIVE in this Article-why take any comment if it won't appease YOU PEOPLE- that's NOT American- with EVERYTHING you indicated is NOT said-I can see WHY it say's o Comments- YOU are COMMIES- BIG BROTHER and most likely- voted for Obama!

  3. In Europe there are schools for hairdressing but you don't get a license afterwards but you are required to assist in turkey and Italy its 7 years in japan it's 10 years England 2 so these people who assist know how to do hair their not just anybody and if your an owner and you hire someone with no experience then ur an idiot I've known stylist from different countries with no license but they are professional clean and safe they have no license but they have experience a license doesn't mean anything look at all the bad hairdressers in the world that have fried peoples hair okay but they have a license doesn't make them a professional at their job I think they should get rid of it because stateboard robs stylist and owners and they fine you for the dumbest f***ing things oh ur license isn't displayed 100$ oh ur wearing open toe shoes fine, oh there's ONE HAIR IN UR BRUSH that's a fine it's like really? So I think they need to go or ease up on their regulations because their too strict

  4. Exciting times in Carmel.

  5. Twenty years ago when we moved to Indy I was a stay at home mom and knew not very many people.WIBC was my family and friends for the most part. It was informative, civil, and humerous with Dave the KING. Terri, Jeff, Stever, Big Joe, Matt, Pat and Crumie. I loved them all, and they seemed to love each other. I didn't mind Greg Garrison, but I was not a Rush fan. NOW I can't stand Chicks and all their giggly opinions. Tony Katz is to abrasive that early in the morning(or really any time). I will tune in on Saturday morning for the usual fun and priceless information from Pat and Crumie, mornings it will be 90.1
