Hospitals approach antitrust practicesRestricted Content

July 23, 2011
Don Stumpp could not be more accurate in his [July 11 Focus column] when describing hospitals buying up medical practices.
More

Baseball column was on the markRestricted Content

July 16, 2011
Bill Benner’s [July 4] column “A love lost … ” was great—absolutely the way I remember it, plus the scoring of a double-header on the radio, knowing every batting average, home runs and RBI’s of the all-time greats.
More

Selling off the futureRestricted Content

July 16, 2011
Great [Morton] Marcus column in the July 4 issue of the IBJ. What’s happening in this state is extremely unfortunate and shortsighted.
More

Lugar respondsRestricted Content

July 9, 2011
A [June 27] letter to the editor entitled “Lugar column sparks policy questions” asks for some examples of actions that have generated my claims of regulatory overreach at the Environmental Protection Administration.

Indy Partnership has lost independenceRestricted Content

After reading [Morton Marcus’ June 13] column on regionalism and more specifically adding layers, my mind immediately went to the Indy Partnership.
More

A twisted definition of pro-lifeRestricted Content

A political movement that sacrificed the contraceptive continuity of low income families does not deserve to be called pro life.
More

16 Tech District holds great promiseRestricted Content

June 25, 2011
The recently announced 16 Tech District adds a new tool to Indianapolis’ strong life sciences arsenal.
More

Insurance industry protects consumersRestricted Content

June 25, 2011
I write in response to [Julia Vaughn’s Forefront column June 13] titled “State protects insurers better than consumers” and its mistaken view that insurance commissioner Stephen Robertson’s support of medical loss ratio reform does nothing to protect consumers.
More

Another call to add a Dillard's downtownRestricted Content

More

Turn failed IPS sites into charter schoolsRestricted Content

June 25, 2011
No one obviously wants the government to raise our children, but it is clear to me that someone needs to step up and create real reform in the state’s largest school district.
More

Lugar column sparks policy questionsRestricted Content

June 25, 2011
Sen. Lugar, although I think of myself as conservative, I disagree with you on some points [in your May 23 Forefront column].
More

Dillard's a great pick to replace NordstromRestricted Content

June 18, 2011
I agree 110 percent Dillard’s would be perfect for Circle Centre mall. Dillard’s is much like the old L.S. Ayres—a great selection of clothing, etc., and just a classy store.
More

More support for Dilliard'sRestricted Content

June 18, 2011
After we lost the Lazarus and Ayres stores in the area, I felt an answer might be to get Dillard’s.

More

Maurer takes unfair political shotsRestricted Content

June 4, 2011
Mickey Maurer’s May 31 commentary was a nice tribute to Gov. [Mitch] Daniels and was a somewhat humorous and tongue-in-cheek piece, that is, until he decided to take some cheap shots.
More

Indianapolis libraries need fundingRestricted Content

June 4, 2011
On a recent visit to my local library, I couldn’t help but notice the buzz of activity—a mother reading to her toddler, children and adults taking advantage of computer and Internet access, a middle-aged gentleman working with spread sheets on his laptop, and a line of people at the main desk waiting to check out items.
More

IPS is improvingRestricted Content

May 28, 2011
There’s been much talk recently about the possibility of mayoral control of Indianapolis Public Schools. Missing in this debate are the voices of the students and families who actually live within and are served by the school district.
More

Do these folks file tax returns?Restricted Content

May 28, 2011
Morton Marcus [in his May 23 column] may have omitted some things in analyzing the statement about “half the people” not paying taxes.
More

Swipe-fee reforms will ensure prosperityRestricted Content

More

Indy 500 needs a dose of speed

May 21, 2011
The fastest Indy 500 was run 21 years ago. Look at the pole sitters’ times, and note how far back you’d have to go (decades) to have a pole sitter’s time not make today’s field!
More

Good riddance to abortion funding

May 14, 2011
Congratulations are due Gov. Daniels and the Indiana Legislature for taking action to suspend public dollars to “family planning” organizations who perpetuate the continuing slaughter of the tiniest, most innocent human beings.

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
