Thank you so much for a caring [Morris column, March 24] showing, and indeed seeking, support for Jim Irsay, the man.

Business model, schools don’t mixRestricted Content

April 5, 2014
I have long said the business model cannot work in schools, especially when the current reform format is in place [March 17 Guy Viewpoint].

Get behind IrsayRestricted Content

Support for Irsay has its limitationsRestricted Content

March 29, 2014
Anyone who has a problem with drug or alcohol addiction has my empathy and support—right up until they endanger my life or the lives of others by choosing to get behind the wheel of a vehicle [March 24 Morris column].

Ed Martin competition feared by other dealersRestricted Content

March 29, 2014
I was interested to see the [March 17] article concerning the Toyota dealerships’ “turf altercations” shall we call them.

Rethink agriculture

March 22, 2014
I appreciate the recognition that there are alternatives to industrialized agriculture [March 17 editorial], but I encourage IBJ not to fall into the trap of “feeding the world.
More

Locals focus on real jobs

March 22, 2014
As a site consultant for over eight years, I worked for those “footloose businesses that could locate anywhere” Michael Hicks talks about in his [March 17] column “Focus on real job creation.” We helped these companies choose the best states and communities for their expansion projects.
More

Miller failed Brownsburg

March 22, 2014
I am writing to express my disappointment with state Sen. Pete Miller’s sponsorship and shepherding of Senate Bill 118 through the legislative process. The bill guts the tax increment finance district Brownsburg relies heavily on to fund current and future infrastructure.
More

Irsay's behavior is personal

March 22, 2014
I agree that one should hold owners, co-founders and CEOs to higher standards, but Jim Irsay’s driving while intoxicated charge is personal, not business, meaning the Colts should not be penalized by the NFL one iota.
More

Think twice before deregulating utilitiesRestricted Content

March 15, 2014
For decades, our state has enjoyed low, stable electricity prices due in large measure to using Indiana’s abundant natural resource—coal. However, federal environmental mandates have eroded that advantage as our electric utilities have had to make expensive investments to comply with stricter rules.

Downtown justice complex would spur city’s centerRestricted Content

March 8, 2014
The stated preferred location for the new criminal justice center, 6600 Kentucky Ave., is attractive on a first-cost basis because it is bare farm ground. However, looking at the benefits of this project long-term, this site would be a mistake.
More

Downtown best location for new justice centerRestricted Content

March 1, 2014
Thanks for your thoughtful [Feb. 17] editorial on the proposed locations for the criminal justice center.
More

Justice center could go on Citizens propertyRestricted Content

March 1, 2014
If one drives around Center Township, one can find several possible locations.
More

Hooray for pragmatismRestricted Content

March 1, 2014
If gay marriage were allowed in Indiana [Feb. 17 Maurer column], there would be no increase in gay porn at AMC Theaters, no mandatory attendance at gay weddings, no straight people suddenly turning gay, no visible signs anywhere of any change—because there already are gay couples.
More

Legislature failing to protect consumersRestricted Content

March 1, 2014
The legislative response in the [Feb. 17] IBJ article about possible deregulation of retail electric rates leaves a lot to be desired.
More

Fight anti-Semitism with great leadershipRestricted Content

February 22, 2014
Anti-Semitism has been in remission, but it’s not dead, and Mickey Maurer points that out very compellingly from time to time [Feb. 3 Maurer column].
More

Maurer misunderstands Tea Party movementRestricted Content

February 22, 2014
Mickey Maurer’s [Feb. 17] personalized and mean-spirited slam on Mike Delph and unwarranted smear on the Tea Party in particular shows ignorance of what the Tea Party is all about.
More

Heartened by support for same-sex marriageRestricted Content

February 22, 2014
While my husband and I now live far from the Hoosier state (we met while working for then-Indiana Attorney General Pamela Carter, back in the day), the rest of my family still calls Indiana home.
More

Bill would upset alcohol distributionRestricted Content

February 22, 2014
On behalf of Anheuser-Busch, I would like to thank IBJ for its continued coverage of Senate Bill 415. This important issue has been the subject of two articles as well as a hearing conducted in the Senate Public Policy Committee on Jan. 29.
More

Ashamed of IndianaRestricted Content

February 22, 2014
I couldn’t agree more with Mickey Maurer’s comments [Feb. 17]. It seems counterproductive to try to attract business to Indiana when there is such a provincial attitude here.
More

Leaving IndianaRestricted Content

February 22, 2014
After a lifetime in Indiana, I am saying goodbye to the Hoosier state in 16 months [Feb. 17 Maurer column].
More

There’s more to the rural vs. Indy storyRestricted Content

February 15, 2014
Richard Sullivan [Feb. 3 Viewpoint] offers the perspective that Indiana’s rural areas “stick it” to Indy when folks in rural areas don’t support urban issues. He links this long-running, alleged battle to the lack of rural support for the anti-gay amendment in the news today.
More

Argument was selectiveRestricted Content

February 8, 2014
Sheila Suess Kennedy should not have endorsed the Christian Theological Seminary president’s position [Jan. 27] even though his conclusion is the one she prefers.
More

Empower parents with educationRestricted Content

February 8, 2014
In “Pushing back against education ‘reform’” [Jan. 20 Forefront], Doug Masson seems to lump innovations such as charter schools in with vouchers and derides both.
More

Biglari like ObamaRestricted Content

February 1, 2014
Just completed Greg Andrews’ [Jan. 27] column. Perhaps Sardar Biglari should consider a presidential run in 2016.

  1. I never thought I'd see the day when a Republican Mayor would lead the charge in attempting to raise every tax we have to pay. Now it's income taxes and property taxes that Ballard wants to increase. And to pay for a pre-K program? Many studies have shown that pre-K offer no long-term educational benefits whatsoever. And Ballard is pitching it as a way of fighting crime? Who is he kidding? It's about government provided day care. It's a shame that we elected a Republican who has turned out to be a huge big spending, big taxing, big borrowing liberal Democrat.

  2. Why do we blame the unions? They did not create the 11 different school districts that are the root of the problem.

  3. I was just watching an AOW race from cleveland in 1997...in addition to the 65K for the race, there were more people in boats watching that race from the lake than were IndyCar fans watching the 2014 IndyCar season finale in the Fontana grandstands. Just sayin...That's some resurgence modern IndyCar has going. Almost profitable, nobody in the grandstands and TV ratings dropping 61% at some tracks in the series. Business model..."CRAZY" as said by a NASCAR track general manager. Yup, this thing is purring like a cat! Sponsors...send them your cash, pronto!!! LOL, not a chance.

  4. I'm sure Indiana is paradise for the wealthy and affluent, but what about the rest of us? Over the last 40 years, conservatives and the business elite have run this country (and state)into the ground. The pendulum will swing back as more moderate voters get tired of Reaganomics and regressive social policies. Add to that the wave of minority voters coming up in the next 10 to 15 years and things will get better. unfortunately we have to suffer through 10 more years of gerrymandered districts and dispropionate representation.

  5. Funny thing....rich people telling poor people how bad the other rich people are wanting to cut benefits/school etc and that they should vote for those rich people that just did it. Just saying..............
