Column read like Fox auditionRestricted Content

April 7, 2012
[Greg Morris’ March 26 column] reads more like an audition to be the next fear-mongering talking head on Fox News instead of the thoughtful commentary we have come to expect from the IBJ.

Gun rights indeed at riskRestricted Content

April 7, 2012
Thomas M. Meredith [April 2 letter] wrote that Greg Morris’ [March 26 column] was “pure fear mongering, filled with innuendos and false statements.” Nothing could be further from the truth.

March 31, 2012

Vaccinations save livesRestricted Content

March 10, 2012
I read with shock Anita Y. Woudenberg’s [March 5 Forefront] column on vaccinations and find it irresponsible for the IBJ to print something so misleading, factually weak and potentially dangerous.
More

We don't know what we don't knowRestricted Content

March 10, 2012
I take no issue with the premise [March 5 Maurer column] that politics far too often prevail over wisdom, but his argument that “religious right groups are manipulating religion to further their intolerant political agendas” is far too short-sighted for a man of his character and wisdom.
More

The Republican Party has become the party of radicalism.
More

Benner on targetRestricted Content

March 3, 2012
It’s my guess [Benner’s Feb. 27 column ] could have been pages and pages in length with recitals of poor behavior on behalf of parents, administrators, students, players, coaches, officials, cheerleaders, mascots, trainers, gym managers, parking lot attendants, clean-up crews and many others.

Right-to-work puts state on right pathRestricted Content

February 25, 2012
No one has said right-to-work will be the immediate cure-all for what ails our economy (our struggles are largely due to national concerns). But it also won’t lower wages and threaten workers’ safety and health care, as opponents claimed.
More

Good movement on school fundingRestricted Content

February 25, 2012
It only makes sense that if students attend more than one school in a given year, there would be a funding system that counts students’ attendance more than once a year.

  1. John, unfortunately CTRWD wants to put the tank(s) right next to a nature preserve and at the southern entrance to Carmel off of Keystone. Not exactly the kind of message you want to send to residents and visitors (come see our tanks as you enter our city and we build stuff in nature preserves...

  2. 85 feet for an ambitious project? I could shoot ej*culate farther than that.

  3. I tried, can't take it anymore. Untill Katz is replaced I can't listen anymore.

  4. Perhaps, but they've had a very active program to reduce rainwater/sump pump inflows for a number of years. But you are correct that controlling these peak flows will require spending more money - surge tanks, lines or removing storm water inflow at the source.

  5. All sewage goes to the Carmel treatment plant on the White River at 96th St. Rainfall should not affect sewage flows, but somehow it does - and the increased rate is more than the plant can handle a few times each year. One big source is typically homeowners who have their sump pumps connect into the sanitary sewer line rather than to the storm sewer line or yard. So we (Carmel and Clay Twp) need someway to hold the excess flow for a few days until the plant can process this material. Carmel wants the surge tank located at the treatment plant but than means an expensive underground line has to be installed through residential areas while CTRWD wants the surge tank located further 'upstream' from the treatment plant which costs less. Either solution works from an environmental control perspective. The less expensive solution means some people would likely have an unsightly tank near them. Carmel wants the more expensive solution - surprise!
