Sticking it to commutersRestricted Content

September 6, 2014
I found [Sheila Kennedy’s Aug. 11 column] to be incredibly compelling. For years, I worked in Louisville, Ky., while living in Indiana, and for each of those years I was required to pay into a sinking fund (often referred to by commuters as a stinking fund).
More

Study Indianapolis criminal justice centerRestricted Content

August 30, 2014
The IBJ is correct [Aug. 18 editorial]. There are too many unanswered questions about the proposed half-billion-dollar criminal justice center and the little-tested public/private partnership (P3) contracting model under which a private consortium would design, build, finance, maintain and operate the facility in return for predetermined annual payments.

How to upgrade International Motor SpeedwayRestricted Content

IMS should change to accommodate its fansRestricted Content

August 9, 2014

More

More taxes to fund copsRestricted Content

WIBC slides further into ‘have it your way’ newsRestricted Content

June 28, 2014

  4. The question is, where could they build a new stadium? It seems in the past year, all the prime spots have been spoken for with potential projects. Maybe in the industrial wasteland area a block past Lucas Oil? I think it needs to be close to the core, if a new stadium is built.

  5. Aldi is generally a great shopping experience. Still, I'm sure YOU wouldn't want to shop there, which I consider a positive.
