Letters to the Editor

Lynch is history

November 20, 2010
[IU football Coach Bill Lynch] is a good man and we’ve all wished for his success, but the Wisconsin game has pretty much put an end to his tenure.

Caution can take over

November 20, 2010
I understand and agree [with Mickey Maurer’s Nov. 1 column] that pace, discipline and focus all are important for any entrepreneur to employ when they are managing their enterprise. However, you have not discussed what I believe is the “real” issue.

What happened to Di Rimini architect?

November 13, 2010
Where was the architect when the developer made 35 departures from the approved plans? Where was the architect when the city cited the developer for multiple code violations?
More

Township government has a purpose

November 6, 2010
Our townships are not business competitors; they are governing for the people—not for greed, not for profit.

Lung cancer strikes nonsmokers

November 6, 2010
Last November I was hospitalized with H1N1 and pneumonia. In January I had a biopsy that confirmed non-small-cell lung cancer, stage IV.
More

Time for townships has passed

October 30, 2010
I am in agreement with the IBJ position [stated in the Oct. 25 editorial]. It is time to abolish townships and shift their revenue and responsibilities to their respective counties.

Meter deal not in city's interest

October 30, 2010
It’s easy to see that a deal that gives away billions of dollars over 50 years to a private company might not be the best deal for the citizens of our city.
More

City can improve meters itself

October 23, 2010
You do not have to sell off the parking meters to bring the rates and service hours up to par with other Midwest cities.
More

Maurer columns hit home

October 23, 2010
I want to express how much I’ve enjoyed reading [Mickey Maurer’s] commentaries the last few weeks.
More

Online retailers should collect taxes

October 16, 2010
This is not just a matter of fairness. It is the law in most states that consumers pay sales taxes on Internet and catalog purchases.
More

Praise for 'Q' column

October 16, 2010
I agree with [Mickey Maurer’s Oct. 4] thoughts on the “Q factor.” In the first 14 years of my career, I never considered it. The result was seven relocations and our kids being in three schools by fifth grade.
More

Some examples of gutlessness

October 9, 2010
Morton Marcus is right when he says [in the Sept. 13 issue], “Gutless government avoids political risk.” I just differ with him on which items on the list of government activities, or lack thereof, constitute such “gutlessness.”
More

Online shopping isn't the problem

October 9, 2010
It is disingenuous of Indiana lawmakers to claim low Internet taxation puts some firms at a competitive disadvantage when their goal is likely just to bring in more tax revenue, not level the playing field.
More

Duke Energy maintains trust

October 2, 2010
A [Sept. 27] IBJ article reported on a settlement Duke Energy and several customer groups have reached on costs associated with construction of the company’s clean-coal technology power plant in Edwardsport.
More

Indiana missed stimulus opportunity

October 2, 2010
Kudos to Mary Dieter and IBJ for the investigative journalism that led to the [Sept. 27] publication of the disturbing disclosure that the Daniels administration failed to pursue up to $103 million in federal stimulus money that would benefit Hoosier small businesses and workers.
More

Indiana Sports Corp. intimidates IBJ

October 2, 2010
Make no mistake about it, we are calling you out, in your own publication. Indiana Sports Corp. has about 30 staffers; we both run the event and run in the event. We want to go head-to-head with Team IBJ next year!
More

'Greener Welcome' will be powerful

October 2, 2010
In just a few days, thousands of Lilly employees will descend upon Interstate 70. The purpose: a massive makeover we’re calling “A Greener Welcome.” It will naturalize 10 acres of vacant interchanges.
More

Parking meter deal is boon for city

September 25, 2010
The proposed parking transaction with ACS is another example of the mayor streamlining government, maximizing the value of existing assets, and securing millions of dollars for infrastructure improvements.
More

NFL lockout risky

September 25, 2010
I hope NFL owners and players take into account, while contemplating a lockout, the effect on the fans.
More

Meter deal is a bad idea

September 18, 2010
I read with interest [Cory Schouten’s] article in the Aug. 30 IBJ, “City vendor may get $1.2B,” detailing aspects of the city’s proposed deal to privatize the city’s parking meters.
More

Biglari Holdings not worth covering

September 18, 2010
I find the continued press coverage about Steak-n-Shake and Biglari Holdings to be irrelevant to our community and a waste of IBJ’s valuable resources.
More

Maurer 'walks the talk'

September 18, 2010
Re: Mickey Maurer’s Sept. 6 article, “Kindness is a measure of success,” my experiences with him show he “walks the talk.”
More

Praise for Maurer columns

September 18, 2010
I am enjoying [Mickey Maurer’s] articles in IBJ about the essential principles of entrepreneurship. They are very worthwhile and well-written.
More

Indiana leads charge on electric cars

September 18, 2010
In Indianapolis, it looks like the electric car is much closer to rounding the corner, with Energy Systems Network’s recent announcement that the partnership is launching a pilot project that will, it seems, make electric commutes a reality here and eventually across the United States.
More

City takes safety seriously

September 11, 2010
One of my first priorities as mayor was returning the police department to the mayor’s office. I did this because I believe protecting our neighborhoods, our businesses and our families to be the highest responsibility I bear as mayor.

  1. Liberals do not understand that marriage is not about a law or a right ... it is a rite of religous faith. Liberals want "legal" recognition of their homosexual relationship ... which is OK by me ... but it will never be classified as a marriage because marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman. You can gain / obtain legal recognition / status ... but most people will not acknowledge that 2 people of the same sex are married. It's not really possible as long as marriage is defined as one man and one woman.

  2. That second phrase, "...nor make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunitites of citizens..." is the one. If you can't understand that you lack a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and I can't help you. You're blind with prejudice.

  3. Why do you conservatives always go to the marrying father/daughter, man/animal thing? And why should I keep my sexuality to myself? I see straights kissy facing in public all the time.

  4. I just read the XIV Amendment ... I read where no State shall deprive any person of life, liberty, or property ... nor make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunitites of citizens ... I didn't see anything in it regarding the re-definition of marriage.

  5. I worked for Community Health Network and the reason that senior leadership left is because they were not in agreement with the way the hospital was being ran, how employees were being treated, and most of all how the focus on patient care was nothing more than a poster to stand behind. Hiring these analyst to come out and tell people who have done the job for years that it is all being done wrong now...hint, hint, get rid of employees by calling it "restructuring" is a cheap and easy way out of taking ownership. Indiana is an "at-will" state, so there doesn't have to be a "reason" for dismissal of employment. I have seen former employees that went through this process lose their homes, cars, faith...it is very disturbing. The patient's as well have seen less than disireable care. It all comes full circle.
