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.

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].

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Families First helps beat addictionRestricted Content

In response to the prescription drug article [in the May 16 Focus section], with the increase in prescription-drug abuse throughout the state, there are two important things to understand:

Swipe-fee reforms will ensure prosperityRestricted Content

May 28, 2011
Merchants in the Hoosier state have experienced an inordinately swift and severe rise in swipe fees, a charge that card-issuing banks levy against retailers every time a customer uses a debit card to make a purchase.

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!

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.
More

Powerful must learn hard lessons

May 14, 2011
In light of our most recent General Assembly, I believe the top 1 percent of Indiana went to bat for the top 1 percent and then kicked the other 99 percent [who were] fooled into electing them in the teeth.

Vouchers muddy church, state

May 7, 2011
In response to the [May 2] editorial “Education bills rise above legislative noise,” I have to agree wholeheartedly that there is no question that the status quo is not working.

Here’s an opportunity to enliven the city with al fresco dining in a spectacular yet casual party-like atmosphere amidst the architectural splendor of Monument Circle.

Butler was 'inept' and 'unparalleled'

April 30, 2011
Regarding [Bill Benner’s] Butler comments in the April 18 issue, quite possibly the reason Clark Kellogg referred to the “unparalleled ineptitude” of Butler was, well, because it was both inept and unparalleled.
More

Consumer cutbacks may cost us

April 30, 2011
I was looking over IBJ today, and I thought to myself, I find all of this depressing, and I was about to set it aside and take it up again later. Then I came to [Bruce Hetrick’s April 25] article, and I realized there was somebody with some sanity in this world.

I read with interest John Guy’s [viewpoint column] titled “Where are the progressives?” (April 11, 2011) and found his list of antis enlightening.

  1. "This was a very localized, Indiana issue," he said. As in, Indiana failed to expand Medicaid to cover its poor citizens resulting in the loss of essential medical services, including this EMS company. Well done, Indiana GOP. Here are the real death panels: GOP state governments who refuse to expand Medicaid for political reasons.

  2. In the "one for all, all for none" socialist doctrine the sick die...this plus obama"care" equates to caucasian genocide plus pushed flight to cities thus further eroding the conservative base and the continualed spiral toward complete liberal/progressive/marxist America.

  3. There is a simple reason why WISH is not reporting on this story. LIN has others stations in different markets that are affiliated with CBS. Reporting about CBS blindsiding WISH/LIN due to CBS's greed and bullying tatics would risk any future negoations LIN will have with CBS in other markets.

  4. My best always! Dave Wilson

  5. How did Columbus, Ohio pull off a car share service without a single dollar of public subsidies? They must not have a mayor who is on the take like Indianapolis. Daimler Benz offers Columbus residents their Smart Cars on a market-driven basis: "This has some neat features. Cars don’t have to be picked up and dropped off at fixed points. You find one with your smart phone based on GPS, and drop it off anywhere in the service area you can find a spot – even at a meter. These cars aren’t required to feed the meter so you get free on street parking while using them. I was told this system was put in place on a market basis without subsidies – and that the vendor actually pays the city for the use of the meters." http://www.urbanophile.com/2014/05/26/checking-in-on-columbus/
