Rights don't come from government

October 3, 2009
Bruce Hetrick is wrong in asserting that “We pray and protest under the protection of government” and that “We … freely publish columns … because of government.” His assertions reveal the progressive mind-set and belief that we receive our rights from government, and thus man

Maurer column hit the mark

October 3, 2009
[Mickey Maurer’s Sept. 21] column was right on! Totally to the point and about time someone stated the obvious. When will this country begin once again to make people pay for their crime(s)?

Are blue laws wrong or are we immoral?

October 3, 2009

Health care reform: Prepare for change

September 26, 2009
With the uncertainty surrounding health care reform, only one thing seems definite: Some level of change is coming. In that light, employers have two options: Fret over the impact these changes might have on their businesses, or act now, meeting the needs of today while forging a plan for addressing a changed landscape.

Don't blame insurance for costs

September 19, 2009
I urge you, as comprehensive health care reform is considered before Congress, to realize that the best way to expand access to health insurance is to work toward containing health care costs.

Marcus misses the point

September 12, 2009
In his Aug. 31 column, Morton Marcus dared to paint those who question the role of government on certain issues as misinformed, narrow-minded and in constant need of reminding of their “obligations.” How arrogant!

Wrestling yields long-term benefits

September 5, 2009
As another former high school wrestler from the 1959-1960 season, [Mickey Maurer’s Aug. 24 column] about Cleo Moore was an opportunity to reflect.

Wrestler also excelled at football

September 5, 2009
[Mickey Maurer’s Aug. 24 column] on Cleo Moore caught my attention. I have read his name in the papers many times and thought it sounded familiar. As I read through your article on Moore, it dawned on me why I recognized his name.

Reduce government role in health care

September 5, 2009
Bruce Hetrick’s patronizing and dismissive reference [in his Aug. 24 column] to the idea of death panels (“There is, of course, no such clause or intent in any health-reform legislation”) is insulting to any reader who has followed the debate over health care reform.

Investing columnist needs new topics

September 5, 2009
It is rather obvious [investment columnist] Keenan Hauke has run out of things to write about. Give the readers a break, this guy’s views are downright irresponsible.

September 5, 2009
Paul Barada’s argument that teachers with 30 years of teaching experience making $50,000-plus a year are underpaid is flawed.

Council faced unpleasant choiceRestricted Content

August 29, 2009
[In the Aug. 17 editorial] IBJ accuses elected officials of making decisions based on partisanship rather than good judgment. This superficial pronouncement of the reasons behind Proposal 285’s vote tally lacks thoughtful evaluation of why councilors cast their votes the way they did at the August 10 council meeting.

Shredding paper beats burning itRestricted Content

August 29, 2009
After reading [Tim Altom’s Return on Technology column] in the Aug. 17 IBJ on whether shredding or burning documents provided the greatest security, I felt compelled to send you a note.

  1. I had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

  2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

  3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

  4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

  5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
