Letters to the Editor

Why more taxes for education?

January 23, 2010
Re: Bruce Hetrick’s [Jan. 11 column] “Hey kids! Come and get your pound of flesh,” at first I was stunned. Then I was speechless. After that I was just plain mad.

Are fans ready to forgive Polian?

January 23, 2010
By the time the next IBJ hits the newsstands we’ll know whether it’s the Colts or The Team the Colts Enabled (the Jets) that will be playing in the Super Bowl.
More

Concert review was right on

January 23, 2010
Since I canâ??t summarize this exciting four-plus-hour [Hoosier Dylan] concert nearly as well as [the Jan. 18 Louâ??s Views column], I will merely agree with you verbatim on your precise review—including your disappointment with Indianaâ??s poet laureate.

Insurance should not pay for all doctor visits

January 16, 2010
It is not the government’s (taxpayers’) responsibility to provide for an individual’s health care. The “general welfare” clause in the Constitution is just that—general.
More

Good government shows our humanity

January 16, 2010
After reading [Morton Marcus’ Jan. 4 column] on the economics of government, I would like to nominate you for the Nobel Prize for Economics and Government 101.

Not all charities should survive

January 9, 2010
My letter is in response to Kathleen McLaughlin’s excellent [Dec. 28] article, “Charity mergers scarce.” While all of the comments shared are well-considered, the elephant in the room is nonprofit closures.

Future Fund's start is not so slow

January 9, 2010
n response to your Dec. 21 article labeling the Indiana Future Fund as “off to slow start,” I believe some additional historical perspective is warranted.
More

Here are some ways to help the CIB

January 9, 2010
Is there enough money coming in to keep the city's world-class sports facilities maintained, pay them off, put enough away for the inevitable refurbishing that they will need over time and also promote Indianapolis?
More

Goals are different than a decade ago

January 9, 2010
Bruce Hetrick's [Dec. 28] “Could we start again?” article really made me remember the hope and excitement of the new millennium 10 years ago.
More

Smoking should be part of health reform

January 9, 2010
As Congress debates health care reform, it’s easy to lose sight of what we agree on—and what we know works to prevent disease and lower costs. Helping people quit smoking and keeping young people from starting are proven ways to reduce the awful toll of cancer, heart attacks and other serious illnesses.
More

Yuletide show rocked

January 2, 2010
For the eighth consecutive year, we took our family (22 this year) to the Yuletide Celebration. The show was one of the best.
More

Return of business name is gratifying

January 2, 2010
I am writing in response to the Dec. 14 On the Beat article (“Firm undergoes name change”). First, since leaving my former company, which had still been using the Sponsel name, I’m happy to have my name back solely for my use.
More

Indianapolis business supports community

January 2, 2010
I loved [Benner’s Dec. 14] column [about Indiana Sports Corp.]. Thirty years is not a long history, but I’ll bet most folks in Indy don’t know about this.
More

Editorial on Durham was worth posting

December 26, 2009
Thanks for your [editorial] in [the Dec. 7] IBJ. I really appreciated the comparison [between businessmen Tim Durham and Jim Dodson] and plan to reference this article (now hanging in my office) as a reality check.
More

Ballard is right to oppose smoking ban

December 26, 2009
[Mickey Maurer’s Nov. 30 column] was the second article criticizing Mayor [Greg] Ballard on his position against a stronger non-smoking ban for Indy.
More

Losing tennis event is a sad moment

December 19, 2009
As a local business owner and someone who grew up just off of Dean Road, where the first U.S. Open Clay Courts were played, I am very saddened that the Indy Tennis Championships is leaving our city.
More

Focus of NCAA story was all about money

December 19, 2009
Simultaneously disturbing and telling is how I found “Big Dance may get bigger” in the Dec. 14 edition of the IBJ.
More

Health care issues haven't changed much

December 12, 2009
[In response to Chris Katterjohn’s Nov. 21 column] In ’73 I was a grad student in a master’s health care management program and the same issues were the topic of the day, especially in the econ class.
More

Fix what's broken first

December 12, 2009
As a physician, I owe it to my patients to help get health care reform right. From the front line, physicians can offer changes that could result in more cost-effective, efficient and accessible health care. That’s why I joined the Coalition to Protect Patients’ Rights, along with 10,000 other doctors.
More

Column overlooked airport parking option

December 12, 2009
In your Nov. 2 edition, Tom Henderson weighed in on the new Indy Airport experience. One of his complaints about the new midfield terminal was that, without competition, available parking options have you where they want you. He realized, why complain when it is a fait accompli? There is, however, another option.
More

Property taxes are out of whack

December 12, 2009
I have always found Morton Marcus’ columns both entertaining and informative. I read the Dec. 7 column, in which Marcus seems to insinuate that property taxes were acceptable as they were and do not require modifications. As a resident of Marion County, I could not disagree more.
More

Literacy is a lifelong gift

December 5, 2009
It was with great interest that I read Morton Marcus’ [Nov. 30] column encouraging us to spend responsibly this holiday season, and to “give a check to your local adult literacy program.” It was with added delight when I read Theresa Rhodes’ column on the same page suggesting that readers consider volunteering by “helping an adult learn to read.
More

Meeting Palin was honor

November 28, 2009
My family and I don’t follow sports. We don’t know current actors or television shows. What excites us is conservative politics.
More

Editorial unfairly portrayed schools

November 21, 2009
[The Nov. 9 editorial] was the most offensive, mean-spirited, inaccurate and biased piece of muckraking I’ve seen in 20 years as an IBJ reader.
More

You can have fun in smoke-filled bar

November 21, 2009
I’ve reached the zenith of my life—the esteemed publisher of IBJ has labeled me “clueless” [in his Nov. 9 column].
