"People would always tell me I had the personality and social skills that made me a good salesman," said Vaught, who, with his older brother Tim Vaught, founded Narrow Gate Media LLC in January 2000 in Indianapolis. For example, when Tom Vaught bought a motor scooter for his paper route, all his friends wanted to ride it, and he let them-in exchange for delivering the newspapers. "They got to ride the scooter and I still collected the money" from the...

Diversity marketing gains steam in central Indiana: Ad agencies helping convey cultural revelancyRestricted Content

Anthony Schoettle
Ethnic or diversity marketing, once confined to major cities such as Dallas, New York and Los Angeles, is taking hold in Indianapolis. "We have seen a gradual but growing response among clients to communicate to a multicultural audience," said Clyde Bodkin, president of locally based Bodkin Associates Inc. "Not everyone is in the same place, but smart companies are finding culturally sensitive, culturally relevant ways to communicate to their target markets." Diversity marketing is the fastest-growing sector of Bodkin's 14-person...

Historic battle settled: Prairie pact lays out plans without judging past practicesRestricted Content

But whatever Earlham College puts in the 41-year history of credits and debits, it will have no bearing on the resolution of a decades-long dispute over control of the Hamilton County attraction. That deal is largely done. Carter and Earlham board Chairman Mark B. Myers ended nearly two years of negotiation July 5, putting quill-topped ballpoint to paper in front of a cheering crowd in the museum's Welcome Center. The agreement-which frees Conner Prairie from Earlham's control and calls for...

Women find niche leading credit unions: Unique nature of those financial institutions may explain why females thrive thereRestricted Content

Karla Salisbury started her career at a savings and loan that was later purchased by an out-of-state bank. After a few years, she foresaw that she might have to relocate to advance in the company, "and that was not part of my plan," Salisbury said. So she did some research to see where her best opportunities might be. One thing she investigated was how many women there were in upper management in banks vs. credit unions. She found the top...

CHRIS KATTERJOHN Commentary: The Prairie is saved at last!Restricted Content

July 11, 2005
Few things in the not-for-profit world have gotten my dander up more than the ongoing saga of Conner Prairie the last two years. More to the point, I have been dismayed by the disrespect and lack of gratitude shown by Earlham College toward a dedicated board and CEO who worked so hard to put the museum on the map before being summarily fired by the school in 2003. Thanks to reporter Andrea Muirragui Davis, our newspaper has led the local...

- Luke 12:48 In light of the above Scripture, many would agree that among the most blessed creatures on this Earth are professional athletes. As has been noted often, they receive handsome compensation to play games, and it doesn't really get much better than that, does it? Along with the fortune, however, comes celebrity, and from celebrity comes attention. That means there are no non-public public moments. The spotlight illuminates both the good and the bad. These thoughts come to...

A Lafayette developer has a parking lot on the southeast corner of Meridian and South streets under contract with plans for a mid-rise, mixed-use building. Developer John Teibel plans to purchase the 1.4-acre lot from local investors Robert and Karen Dittemore, who have owned the lot for several years, said Scott Langdon, who is representing the couple. The lot is across the street from Eli Lilly and Co.'s Faris/Brougher complex. Plans call for the first floor of Meridian Overlook to...

RETURN ON TECHNOLOGY: Here's the secret to painless wireless hookupsRestricted Content

July 11, 2005
Tim Altom
Last time, in the June 27 issue, we explored the basics of data WiFi, which is often just called "wireless." This time, we'll look at how you hook up your laptop or notebook to a wireless provider. Wireless works pretty much like a cell phone does, except that you're exchanging data packets, not voice. Therefore, you need the computer equivalent of a cell phone. Most new notebook computers come with built-in wireless hardware that you'll never physically see, because it's...

Living wills get surge of interest: Lawyers, caregivers, estate planners field more questions about advance directives in wake of Schiavo caseRestricted Content

When Mick Meiners brings up living wills these days, his clients tend to pay more attention than they did before the Terri Schiavo case dominated headlines. "In the past, people would say, 'Yeah, that might be something I might get to or it's something my parents should do,'" said Meiners, a certified financial planner with Financial Plans & Strategies Inc. of Indianapolis. The St. Vincent Hospice also has seen a spike in interest, with more phone calls from people asking...

Bill Benner
So much news, so little space. Item: The NBA and its players' association enter into a new collective bargaining agreement that will increase the age for draft eligibility to 19, or to one year after an athlete's high school class has graduated. Reaction: Perhaps the NBA and its players' association believed they were tossing those involved in college basketball a bone by raising the age limit. If so, it is a bone that likely will stick in the throats of...

It's a film school without the film school. Buoyed by a $20 million grant from Indianapolis-based Lilly Endowment Inc., Ball State University's digital learning efforts are making way for a wave of projects worthy of attention on and off campus. Recent graduate Jaron Henrie-McCrea rode the swell all the way to the Student Academy Awards last month, winning an Oscar for his short film, "Knock Knock." Less than a week later, global industry group Media Communications Association-International honored three other...

ITT paid for feds' aggression: Sweeping probe didn't lead to charges against firm, top execsRestricted Content

Greg Andrews
On a chilly winter morning 16 months ago, federal investigators converged on ITT Educational Services Inc.'s Carmel headquarters and 10 of its 77 campuses, gathering documents in a high-profile raid that rattled investors and sent the company's shares into a free fall. Now, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Houston, which obtained the search warrants authorizing the raid, acknowledges its sweeping criminal probe failed to turn up evidence that would justify charges against the company or its top brass. The turnabout,...

By George: Speedway owner gains clout in Formula One negotiationsRestricted Content

Anthony Schoettle
There may be a silver lining to the cloud that descended over Indianapolis Motor Speedway at last month's U.S. Grand Prix: President Tony George has emerged unscathed from a public relations standpoint and has never had more control over the Formula One race his track hosts. Michelin, the French tire maker for the 14 cars that withdrew from the race because of tire-safety concerns, has offered to refund fans' ticket costs. That's a $10 million to $12 million expense the...

Jail plan calls for speedier courts: Prosecutor still seeking more bedsRestricted Content

July 4, 2005
Peter Schnitzler
Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi's colleagues say relieving jail overcrowding is a question of efficiency. Since jail is meant to be a temporary stop for alleged criminals, they argue, improvements in the process from booking to trial can largely eliminate the need for early release. So why is Brizzi the lone wolf still clamoring to add more jail beds? "Everyone says that you can't build your way out. How do you know that?" asked Brizzi, a Republican. "We seem to...

SPORTS: Keep F1 and its cash coming back to SpeedwayRestricted Content

June 27, 2005
Bill Benner
I enjoy auto racing but must admit Formula One is not my cup of motor oil. On assignment for the local daily, I was at the initial U.S. Grand Prix at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, wrote a less-than-positive column about it, and haven't been back since. I liked the technology and the spectacle of the passionate, flag-waving fans, but everything else I viewed with disdain. Particularly distasteful was/is the smugness that permeates the F1 atmosphere. It emanates from the series'...

A syndicated morning news show co-owned by locally based Emmis Communications Corp. is making in-roads nationally but has failed to cause a buzz among viewers locally. "The Daily Buzz," co-owned by Emmis and California-based ACME Communications Inc., and produced in Orlando, Fla., now airs in 137 markets and has shown increased ratings in several critical markets, including Orlando and Tampa, Fla.; Dallas; and Norfolk, Va. "We're definitely looking to expand our syndication, and we think we'll be successful because we...

Cab drivers drive down complaints: Service may have improved after city toughened rulesRestricted Content

June 27, 2005
Chris O\'malley
But much of the evidence is anecdotal, as city officials said they do not have complete complaint records for the periods just before and after the City-County Council imposed tougher regulations in 2002. One key problem addressed by those reforms seems to have diminished-drivers taking passengers to the wrong address. The city received only two such complaints in the last 1-1/2 years, according to records kept by the City Controller's Office. That had been a commonly reported problem in the...

IBJ: Is Indiana gaining ground against other states in the race to grow as a life sciences hub? What are some specific benchmarks that underscore your opinion? JOHNSON: Indiana is gaining ground, but Indiana already starts on really very substantial ground. There are a lot of outside validations of that and I think it's important for this audience to hear a couple of them because there is nothing like having people on the outside pay attention to what we're doing...

Light dims for U.S. Grand Prix:Restricted Content

June 27, 2005
What started out as a technical problem for one tire company here at the Formula One U.S. Grand Prix blew up into a catastrophic F1 public relations pandemic that could very well kill the U.S. event. Fans immediately wanted to know if they were going to get their money back, not whether F1 was coming back. It is every businessman's nightmare to have so many things go wrong in public all at once, and it will be interesting-maybe even instructive-to...

Give NCAA President Myles Brand and his Task Force on the Future of Intercollegiate Athletics their due. If you will pardon both the pun and the cliché, they're going to give it the old college try. Putting the paste back into the tube won't be easy. It will require a dramatic change in our sports culture-American in general, on campus in particular-to view intercollegiate athletics by any measure other than the one posted on the scoreboard. That is especially true...

Charitable sector rides on road to recovery: Giving makes big jump for the first time since 2000Restricted Content

Americans gave more money to charity last year than ever before, signaling a return to the pre-9/11 philanthropic heyday. Contributions were up 5 percent, to $248.5 billion-the first significant increase after adjusting for inflation since 2000. "Things have been kind of flat," said Eugene Tempel, executive director at the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University. "This ... tells us things are getting a little stronger. This is a good sign." Researchers at the center compile data each year and write...

Rose-Hulman looks ahead: Search for new president could take a yearRestricted Content

But trustees currently have a higher priority: Let the dust settle. "It's only been a couple of days," said Rose-Hulman Chairman Robert Bright. "Nothing's been established for sure yet." It took the Terre Haute engineering school 10 months to find and narrow the field of 60 candidates that produced Midgley-nearly the length of his presidential stint. Most expect the search for his successor to last at least as long. In the meantime, Rose-Hulman has a more pressing task. It must...

Med school takes hit: IU trims $5.2 million from budget, cuts 36 positionsRestricted Content

The school tabled some construction plans and may have to curtail recruiting of "star" faculty in areas such as diabetes research, said Dr. Craig Brater, the school's dean. On top of that, the school cut 36 positions and halted spending for several programs after it was hit by decreases in state funding and grants, and a rise in expenses. Brater said the medical school has been lucky "in large part" to receive the funding it needed over the years. He...

To nudge the idea along, executives of the Japanese automaker are becoming personally involved, marking the first time an IRL sponsor and major manufacturer has pushed this hard for unification talks. "It's no small deal when a partner like Honda gets involved," said Bob Basche, chairman of Millsport, a Stamford, Conn.-based sports and event marketing agency. "Not only do they supply engines [to the IRL], but Honda pumps in millions of dollars annually in sponsorship and advertising for the series."...

  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 !!!
