Letters to the Editor

Small schools give bang for buck

April 10, 2010
Economist Morton Marcus [on March 29] took issue with the notion that college and university graduation rates can be improved by tying compensation to increases (or decreases) in institutional graduation rates.

Need quality, quantity in higher ed

April 10, 2010
In his [March 29] column, “Set sights on education, not graduation,” Morton Marcus raises a vital point about Indiana’s higher education reform efforts—but he overlooks a larger one.
More

Editorial understated MIBOR commitment

April 10, 2010
Your editorial in the March 29 edition praising State Farm and city leaders for the commitment to the [2012 Super Bowl] housing “legacy project” was very commendable. But we do have a correction to what you stated about our piece of the project.

Column captured Hinkle's magic

April 10, 2010
My dad took me to Butler Fieldhouse to see Oscar [Robertson] play for Attucks—against Broad Ripple in the sectionals—and to see Tony’s Bulldogs.
More

Hinkle would be proud of Butler

April 10, 2010
Butler showed the “big boys” what true Indiana basketball is about and that the kids from the small cities and towns can keep up with the big schools.
More

Hetrick misinterpreted First Amendment

April 3, 2010
I’m disappointed with Hetrick’s misguided interpretation of the First Amendment.
More

Constitution allows free exercise of religion

April 2, 2010
Bruce Hetrick is incorrect in applying Ken Falk’s logic that you can’t vote to violate someone’s Constitutional rights. Quite the contrary, it happens all of the time.
More

Story on prosecutor was inaccurate

March 27, 2010
I feel it’s necessary to question the fair and balanced reporting on the part of Cory Schouten in his article, “Brizzi’s lease deals benefited friend, donor,” published March 15.
More

Lilly shareholders deserve protection

March 20, 2010
This is the wrong time, in my opinion, and I may not have all the facts, to open up Eli Lilly to an outside takeover.
More

We should all have Forsell's fortitude

March 20, 2010
Sometimes we think we’re having a bad day, until we consider the plight of others. I was recently reminded of this when I came across David Forsell’s article in the March 15 issue.
More

Bars should cater to smokers, too

March 13, 2010
I am replying to the article in the March 1 IBJ where [Indianapolis Convention and Visitors Association President Don] Welsh made his nebulous claims that Indy’s weak smoking ban hurts his ability to market the city to visitors and convention business.
More

Praise for Marcus

March 13, 2010
I am a probably [columnist Morton Marcus’] biggest fan in Indiana whom you never have met.
More

United Way contrast didn't work

March 6, 2010
It is unfair to contrast the $1.32 that the townships spend to give away a dollar, with the United Way spending 16 cents. As I understand it, the townships are giving poor relief directly to individuals and families. United Way gives their money to agencies.
More

Katterjohn will be missed

March 6, 2010
As the kid said to Shoeless Joe Jackson, “Say it ain’t so, Joe!” But I know it is so since I read Chris Katterjohn’s [March 1] column stating that he is leaving IBJ.
More

Uncertain tax climate could hurt business

March 6, 2010
Each day, it seems, something new is said by the Obama administration on how best to curb greenhouse gases, whether that be through a harmful “cap and trade” program or, even worse, stifling Environmental Protection Agency regulation.
More

Trade motorized walkway for walking

February 27, 2010
Every day there are articles in newspapers and magazines and news reports on TV about obesity and what a problem it has become and what we need to do to overcome it.
More

More mobility options mean opportunity

February 20, 2010
The Central Indiana Transit Task Force unveiled a comprehensive plan for mass transit. It’s a combination of expanded bus service and light rail that addresses the challenges of urban residents seeking job opportunities across the metro areas.
More

Tobacco programs will be protected

February 19, 2010
With respect to your editorial in the Feb. 1 issue supporting the Tobacco Prevention and Cessation agency, your intent is pure and laudable, but I fear you miss the point.
More

Marcus column went too far

February 13, 2010
Kudos to Morton Marcus (with tongue in cheek) for pointing out [in his Jan. 25 column] that we should all pay for health care just as we all pay for the fire department.
More

'Avatar' unimpressive

February 13, 2010
I enjoyed [Mickey Maurer’s Feb. 8 column] on “Avatar”! It was a refreshing counter to the media (and social) phenomenon swirling around this (in my opinion) banal flick.
More

Billboard decision was defiant

February 6, 2010
[In the Jan. 4 issue], IBJ covered the State Fair board’s decision to permit a digital billboard at the Fairgrounds on Fall Creek Parkway. One of the opening lines, “Take that, Indianapolis” in the article was apt.
More

You don't have to travel to find nature

February 6, 2010
I have learned that the exploration of natural areas can take place year-round, not just while on vacation.
More

Salvation Army story deserved better

January 30, 2010
A little more research on the comparison of housing costs in Indianapolis vs. Needham, Mass., was needed [in the Jan. 25 story on Salvation Army].
More

Anyone can feel the power of mentoring

January 30, 2010
Your headline [on the Jan. 25 Viewpoint] said it all: “Find a mentor to make you better.” January was national mentoring month to raise awareness of the power of mentoring, which is often thought of as valuable for youth.
More

Bring back IBJ stock charts

January 23, 2010
Your decision to discontinue the printing of stock prices and economic activity charts, as announced in your Jan. 17 issue, was extremely disappointing to us as well as, surely, to other paid subscribers.

Bravo!_____NBCSN is available in almost 2 MILLION more homes than just a few years ago, but Indycar STILL gets less total viewers than it did just a few years ago when NBC took over Versus.

  5. Problem: most of the people responding to this article don't know about this service AT ALL! Why? Lack of awareness. This isn't IndyGo. This is CIRTA: might as well be the mattress company because they are asleep at the wheel - something like 3 directors over the last year? Playing with federal grant money is great! This "region" wants commuter rail service, has spent MILLIONS on Transportation studies yet can't even support a commuter bus line? This is largely for suburban riders to get to downtown - not for "service people to work in our hotels and restaurants" ! Get your head out of your backside!! These are professionals, students etc. that don't want to fight traffic, save some money on parking, gas, stress.... if CIRTA would put their federal money into widely promoting the sevive to Greenwood, Fishers & Carmel instead of finding directors and studies - this would be a successful service. Our family uses(d) it daily for the last several years - but the recent uncertainty & now unreliability due to cuts from Carmel has been a problem. Now, costs us an additional $350/month for gas & parking ( $4200/year) plus vehicle wear, service, environmental impact ... YES - this REGION needs this this type of service in order to keep growing and getting the people it needs to fill skilled positions in downtown Indianapolis. Think outside of your own car !!!
