RUSTHOVEN: A president out of his leagueRestricted Content

Peter J. Rusthoven / Special to IBJ
The president’s handling of the Syria situation is a model of undermining U.S. credibility and influence. Three headlines from last week: 1. “Obama Got Played by Putin and Assad”; “Amateur Hour in the White House”; “Dazed and Confused.”

KENNEDY: Revenue enhancement, anyone?Restricted Content

September 7, 2013
Sheila Suess Kennedy
Public finance these days reminds me of those fellows we used to encounter at the county fairs—the ones who twisted balloons into fantastic shapes, making horses or dogs from oblong balloons they blew up. Push the balloon here and watch a shape emerge there, and wonder if it would pop.

Peter J. Rusthoven / Special to IBJ
Last week marked the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech. Few speeches merit recall a week later. King’s will be remembered as long as America lives.

RUSTHOVEN: Taking issue with KennedyRestricted Content

August 17, 2013
Peter J. Rusthoven / Special to IBJ
I don’t comment on columns by my liberal “Taking Issue” counterpart Sheila Kennedy. This week is an exception, prompted by reader requests to respond to her Aug. 12 “Detroit reflects our moral bankruptcy” column for impugning the motives of those who don’t share her views.

KENNEDY: Detroit reflects our moral bankruptcyRestricted Content

August 10, 2013
Sheila Suess Kennedy
The city of Detroit has declared bankruptcy. It is the largest city in the United States ever to do so, and the punditry—what the late Molly Ivins called “the chattering classes”—are pointing fingers at those their particular ideologies suggest are to blame. It’s “white flight” or de-industrialization or lack of economic diversification or corrupt government or a combination of these and more.

August 3, 2013
Peter J. Rusthoven / Special to IBJ

KENNEDY: Equality economics hitting homeRestricted Content

July 13, 2013
Sheila Suess Kennedy
When it comes to the culture-war politics of same-sex marriage, our governor and legislators would be well advised to listen to Indiana’s business and corporate leadership and forgo their pious pandering to the shrinking number of Hoosiers spooked by social change.

KENNEDY: Enough meat grinding, alreadyRestricted Content

June 29, 2013
Sheila Suess Kennedy
Congressman Marvin Stutzman is hardly alone in waging what seems like a mean-spirited campaign against the “least of us.”

RUSTHOVEN: Court sent signal quiet and clearRestricted Content

June 22, 2013
Two law stories made Indianapolis headlines last week. One is Tomisue Hilbert’s lawsuit against John Menard, claiming he tried to extort, uh, “favors,” and is now trying to wreak financial revenge for being rebuffed. Hmm. What say we talk about the other story?

RUSTHOVEN: Welcome back, Indiana PacersRestricted Content

June 8, 2013
Peter J. Rusthoven / Special to IBJ
Other than the disappointing, anticlimactic Game 7 with the Miami Heat, this was a terrific year and fabulous playoff run by the Pacers. We owe the players and team officials a huge vote of thanks.

KENNEDY: We the ignorant peopleRestricted Content

May 11, 2013
Peter J. Rusthoven / Special to IBJ

April 27, 2013

RUSTHOVEN: Cento personified opportunityRestricted Content

March 16, 2013
Peter J. Rusthoven / Special to IBJ
In the first block of South Meridian, a few paces north of Maryland, you will find next to the parking garage entrance a modest establishment called Cento Shoes. It’s been there for over four decades, founded when L.S. Ayres was flourishing just across the street and no one dreamed of a Circle Centre mall.

  1. Uh, sorry Johnnie, but you are incorrect. Despite the assertions by yourself and various defenders and captains, sports attendance is NOT off significantly at most sporting events in the US. Variances in attendance has been in the range of single digits, both + & - for years now. MLB has had most of its best overall attendance nubers in the last decade, and that trend has been consistent for most major sporting events. The number one issue cited by most fans when asked about attendance is the overall cost of attending. The presence of HD and big screen televisions in home doesn't even register, as a factor for not attending an event. VALUE in the product is the key, and apparently is something lacking in the current ICS. What other explanation is there when with what is routinely touted as the "best" racing on the planet, fans are staying away in DROVES. A "close" title battle into the last event at Fontana, with the "cars and stars" of the ICS, and who showed up? MAYBE 8K. Sorry, but HD TV isn't to blame for that kind of fan apathy.

  2. Do you need finance to establish your business ? Are you interested in getting a loan at 3% from our private company? If so please Email: suntrust_oil@blumail.org

  3. If she was worth the $ the public outcry over direct tv dropping them would have kept them on their dishes as we have seen with other companies. I too quit watching channel 13 after she showed up since I left channel 8 because of her all show rather than production results. When Randy on 8 corrected her she had a big head and incorrectly challenged his correction for pronunciation of a city. Other antics while she matures was too much for me with her very inaccurate forecasts. All the forecasters were predicting rain until Thursday except Chris. They predicted sunny on Thursday but instead of rain until Thursday upon which the sun would finally make it out in full glory Chris was right on the money just as I too predicted looking at the radar on weather.gov. One thing I love about Angela is the fear you can see in her every time it thunders in the winter. It far exceeds the entertainment value of her body language (high heel noise drags, depression, etc) when her forecasts are so incorrect. Her hair stands on end, you have to see it!!!
