Shale gas will support inexpensive electricity

November 30, 2013
As stated in the “Natural gas dilemma” article [Nov. 18], there is increased demand for natural gas in the electric energy market in Indiana and across the country. However, I take exception to the theme that this increased demand will drive volatility in the market and harm Hoosier electric and gas customers.

November 16, 2013
Dang! I just read the [Nov. 11] IBJ, as I have done every Monday since forever (always reading Benner’s column first).

Conserve water, tooRestricted Content

November 9, 2013
IBJ’s Nov. 2 editorial “Study water needs while there’s time” should have noted the value of conservation in meeting future needs. Available supply should be carefully stewarded and not “promiscuously pumped,” as one water expert recently put it.

Apples and orangesRestricted Content

November 9, 2013
Sheila Suess Kennedy [Nov. 4] attempts to make a correlation between the 5.5 million people of Denmark with the 313 million people of the United States. Then she mentions Denmark has high levels of homogeneity.

Sheila Suess Kennedy [Nov. 4] states that “There’s a fair amount of evidence that strong social safety nets correlate with healthier social indicators”—less gun violence, teen pregnancy, divorce, etc.

Thanks for the budgetRestricted Content

October 19, 2013
For many years, including my time at Indiana Black Expo, I have worked to bring people together for the betterment of our city. I’m grateful that our City-County Council and mayor put aside partisan differences to pass a budget.

Let market successes dictate energy sourcesRestricted Content

October 19, 2013
I was disheartened to see Zach Adamson’s [Sept. 30] Viewpoint that naively believes we can replace the Harding Street Indianapolis Power & Light Co. plant with renewable energy sources.

Global Caravan chief has solid backgroundRestricted Content

October 5, 2013
We appreciated the [Sept. 30] coverage the IBJ presented of Global Caravan Technologies. As the capital organization coordinating investment in GCT, we do wish to observe that Charles Hoefer had been involved in the management of other successful and unrelated ventures prior to joining Earthbound.

Rusthoven pegged Obama

September 28, 2013
I enjoyed Peter Rusthoven’s [Sept. 16] column “A president out of his league,” as it nicely characterized both the missteps and blatant lies coming from the Obama administration’s Keystone Cops handling of the crisis in Syria.

Radio thrives on local

September 28, 2013
As someone who has worked at or with radio stations in Indianapolis as well as mid-sized and smaller markets across the state, I agree with most of the points regarding the strong local strategy in use today by the successful broadcasters in those markets [Sept. 2].
More

Stick to business reportingRestricted Content

September 21, 2013
I’m puzzled by your [Sept. 16] stories “The Brain Drain is a Myth” and “Too Few Jobs for Science, Tech Graduates” and their excessively academic focus on the very practical issue of why there are too few Hoosiers working in high-paying jobs to power our state’s future.
More

Schools and health, tooRestricted Content

September 21, 2013
Wouldn’t it be great if a city’s bid to host the Super Bowl [Sept. 9] took into account the quality of the city’s public schools; the overall health of its residents; how the city treats the homeless; air and water quality; a living wage for it hospitality workers; access to grocery stores; the age of its sewers; ability to manage natural disasters (like floods); safe streets, and so on?

Lincoln’s RepublicansRestricted Content

September 14, 2013
If Abe Lincoln were asked about the proposed legislation to amend Indiana’s Constitution to ban gay marriage [Maurer, Sept. 2], he would respond as he has in the past: “Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.”

Maurer got it rightRestricted Content

September 14, 2013
You got it, brother, [Maurer, Sept. 2] except we need to mount up our pickups and ATVs, load up our Glocks, .45s and AK-47s and lay waste to those idiots who want to marry whomever they please.

Purdue fortunate to have Daniels as presidentRestricted Content

September 14, 2013
Your [Sept. 2] cover story on Purdue President Mitch Daniels referenced “skepticism” from certain camps within the Purdue faculty. In the article, professor David Sanders was quoted as a basis for that skepticism.

Running for office again?

September 14, 2013
J.K. Wall’s [Sept. 2] article points out that Mitch Daniels is trying to “create new ways to measure student learning, graduate success and overall academic quality at Purdue” and that “Such a system of measurements would help students, parents and donors choose schools based on the best bang for the buck … ”

  1. So much for Eric Holder's conversation about race. If white people have got something to say, they get sued over it. Bottom line: white people have un-freer speech than others as a consequence of the misnamed "Civil rights laws."

  2. I agree, having seen three shows, that I was less than wowed. Disappointing!!

  3. Start drilling, start fracking, and start using our own energy. Other states have enriched their citizens and nearly elminated unemployment by using these resources that are on private land. If you are against the 'low prices' of discount stores, the best way to allow shoppers more choice is to empower them with better earnings. NOT through manipulated gov mandated min wage hikes, but better jobs and higher competitive pay. This would be direct result of using our own energy resources, yet Obama knows that Americans who arent dependent of gov welfare are much less likely to vote Dem, so he looks for ways to ensure America's decline and keep its citizens dependent of gov.

  4. Say It Loud, I'm Black and Ashamed: It's too bad that with certain "black" entertainment events, it seems violence and thuggery follows and the collateral damage that it leaves behinds continues to be a strain on the city in terms of people getting hurt, killed or becoming victims of crimes and/or stretching city resources. I remember shopping in the Meadows area years ago until violence and crime ended make most of the business pack you and leave as did with Lafayette Square and Washington Square. Over the past 10 to 12 years, I remember going to the Indiana Black Expo Soul Picnic in Washington Park. Violence, gang fights and homicides ended that. My great grandmother still bears the scares on her leg from when she was trampled by a group of thugs running from gun fire from a rival gang. With hundreds of police offices downtown still multiple shootings, people getting shot downtown during Black Expo. A number of people getting shots or murdered at black clubs around the city like Club Six on the west side, The Industry downtown, Jamal Tinsley's shot out in front of the Conrad, multiple fights and shootings at the skating rinks, shootings at Circle Center Mall and shooting and robberies and car jackings at Lafayette Mall. Shootings and gang violence and the State Fair. I can go on and on and on. Now Broad Ripple. (Shaking head side to side) Say It Loud, I'm Black and I'm Ashamed.

  5. Ballard Administration. Too funny. This is the least fiscally responsive administration I have ever seen. One thing this article failed to mention, is that the Hoosier State line delivers rail cars to the Amtrak Beech Grove maintenance facility for refurbishment. That's an economic development issue. And the jobs there are high-paying. That alone is worth the City's investment.
