SOWELL: All the wrong priorities with budgetsRestricted Content

March 2, 2013
Thomas Sowell / Creators Syndicate
A nation’s choice between spending on military defense and spending on civilian goods has often been posed as “guns versus butter.” But understanding the choices of many nations’ political leaders might be helped by examining the contrast between their runaway spending on pensions while skimping on military defense.

BRAINARD: Longevity in office would help Ballard finish projectsRestricted Content

March 2, 2013
Jim Brainard / Special to IBJ
Why would the mayor of Carmel be weighing in on who runs for mayor of Indianapolis? It is because we are sincere when we talk about regionalism and how we work best when we work together.

The prudence of a third term for Mayor Greg Ballard requires the question: Which Greg Ballard?

STYRING: This carrot might leave a bitter tasteRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
Bill Styring / Special to IBJ
Some time before April 15, the Legislature must decide whether to accept a deal from the federal government to expand Medicaid coverage. It’s shaping up as one of two or three major calls our lawmakers must make.

VAUGHN: Action will make IEDC talk believableRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
Julia Vaughn / Special to IBJ
When I first met Mike Pence back in the mid-1990s, he was working as a radio and TV talk show host in Indianapolis. I was a guest on his public affairs program many times and came to know the future governor as an affable and evenhanded host who made room for all points of view while clearly stating his own.

MYERS: Hoosiers still know how to cooperateRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
Woodrow Myers / Special to IBJ
They say bipartisanship is dead in Washington, D.C. They say a Democrat won’t buy a Republican a beer and a Republican won’t share a glass of Chardonnay with a Democrat.

MACALLISTER: Early CIB is model for civil discourseRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
The element of controversy that clogs political debate, embitters theologians and fosters ethnic bitterness is surely as familiar to us as Cain and Abel. King Solomon in 950 B.C. acknowledged its damage—and its danger—when he pleaded with his subjects, “Come then, let us reason together” (though, like many “well-meaners,” he was better in advising than complying).

BECK: Let's talk reasonably about gunsRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
Lara Beck / Special to IBJ
I didn’t want to write about guns. The subject is fraught with complications. If I thought the political commentary on Facebook was extreme during the election, it became downright ludicrous following the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

KRULL: We're all responsible for our governmentRestricted Content

John Krull / Special to IBJ
It’s hard to tell when the notion began to sink in that too many Americans have forgotten the point of the American Revolution.

DELPH: Job creation incentives demand more transparencyRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
Mike Delph / Special to IBJ
Recently, Gov. Mike Pence announced his plan to launch a new “transparency portal” to allow open tracking of the Indiana Economic Development Corp.’s tax credits and the jobs created by those incentives. For some time, I have had my own concerns about how much return taxpayers are getting for their public investment in Indiana’s economy.

THOMPSON: IEDC strives to balance public access, confidentialityRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
John Thompson / Special to IBJ
In just more than eight years, Indiana has become a national role model for economic development as other states have enacted similar business-friendly policies, practiced fiscal discipline, and replicated the IEDC organizational structure. Our state’s emergence as an economic development leader is no accident, as the General Assembly partnered with us throughout this time to build this job-attracting machine.

MAHERN: Might freebies have greased this deal?Restricted Content

February 2, 2013
Louis Mahern / Special to IBJ
Some call it flimflam or a thimblerig. It is probably most recognized as the old shell game. Regardless of its moniker, our city leaders are about to pull it on local taxpayers.

BONIFIELD: Social media is changing governmentRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
Jake Bonifield / Special to IBJ
Social media is a relatively new, inexorable term for many business and government leaders. Social media, they are told, is a game-changer and the conventional wisdom suggests that if you do not have a presence on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn (and Google+, to be hipster-ironic), you are missing the boat.

WAGNER: Shake up higher education, thoughtfullyRestricted Content

Jennifer Wagner / Special to IBJ

VANE: Pence will meet huge expectationsRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
Robert Vane / Special to IBJ
While I freely admit that my political memory and experience do not equal that of many of the folks on these pages, I am quite sure the following statement rings true: No governor in modern Indiana history is laboring under more expectations than Mike Pence.

TAFT: Indy arrives at new set of crossroadsRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
Bill Taft / Special to IBJ
Several recent zoning battles have revealed an opposition to change in many Indy neighborhoods that could sabotage the changes that are necessary if Indianapolis is to compete with other metro areas and even its own suburbs in coming decades.

BROOKS: Straining to balance merit, compassionRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
David Brooks / New York Times Syndicate
One of the features of the Obama years is that we get to witness an enormous race between meritocracy and government. On the one side, meritocracy widens inequality. On the other side, there is President Barack Obama’s team of progressives, who are trying to mitigate inequality. The big question is: Which side is winning?

SOWELL: Liberal concern actually hurts blacksRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
Thomas Sowell / Creators Syndicate
There is no question that liberals do an impressive job of expressing concern for blacks. But do the intentions expressed in their words match the actual consequences of their deeds?

  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 !!!
