Shale gas will support inexpensive electricity

November 30, 2013
As stated in the “Natural gas dilemma” article [Nov. 18], there is increased demand for natural gas in the electric energy market in Indiana and across the country. However, I take exception to the theme that this increased demand will drive volatility in the market and harm Hoosier electric and gas customers.

Conserve water, tooRestricted Content

November 9, 2013
IBJ’s Nov. 2 editorial “Study water needs while there’s time” should have noted the value of conservation in meeting future needs. Available supply should be carefully stewarded and not “promiscuously pumped,” as one water expert recently put it.

Rusthoven pegged Obama

September 28, 2013
I enjoyed Peter Rusthoven’s [Sept. 16] column “A president out of his league,” as it nicely characterized both the missteps and blatant lies coming from the Obama administration’s Keystone Cops handling of the crisis in Syria.

Radio thrives on local

September 28, 2013
As someone who has worked at or with radio stations in Indianapolis as well as mid-sized and smaller markets across the state, I agree with most of the points regarding the strong local strategy in use today by the successful broadcasters in those markets [Sept. 2].
More

Stick to business reportingRestricted Content

September 21, 2013
I’m puzzled by your [Sept. 16] stories “The Brain Drain is a Myth” and “Too Few Jobs for Science, Tech Graduates” and their excessively academic focus on the very practical issue of why there are too few Hoosiers working in high-paying jobs to power our state’s future.
More

Schools and health, tooRestricted Content

September 21, 2013
Wouldn’t it be great if a city’s bid to host the Super Bowl [Sept. 9] took into account the quality of the city’s public schools; the overall health of its residents; how the city treats the homeless; air and water quality; a living wage for it hospitality workers; access to grocery stores; the age of its sewers; ability to manage natural disasters (like floods); safe streets, and so on?

You got it, brother, [Maurer, Sept. 2] except we need to mount up our pickups and ATVs, load up our Glocks, .45s and AK-47s and lay waste to those idiots who want to marry whomever they please.

Purdue fortunate to have Daniels as presidentRestricted Content

September 14, 2013
Your [Sept. 2] cover story on Purdue President Mitch Daniels referenced “skepticism” from certain camps within the Purdue faculty. In the article, professor David Sanders was quoted as a basis for that skepticism.

  1. I am a Lyft driver who is a licensed CDL professional driver. ALL Lyft drivers take pride in providing quality service to the Indianapolis and surrounding areas, and we take the safety of our passengers and the public seriously.(passengers are required to put seat belts on when they get in our cars) We do go through background checks, driving records are checked as are the personal cars we drive, (these are OUR private cars we use) Unlike taxi cabs and their drivers Lyft (and yes Uber) provide passengers with a clean car inside and out, a friendly and courteous driver, and who is dressed appropriately and is groomed appropriately. I go so far as to offer mints, candy and/or small bottle of water to the my customers. It's a mutual respect between driver and passenger. With Best Regards

  2. to be the big fish in the little pond of IRL midwest racin' when yer up against Racin' Gardner

  3. In the first sentance "As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss are build quality & price." need a way to edit

  4. As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss is build quality & price. First none of these places is worth $1100 for a one bedroom. Downtown Carmel or Keystone at the Crossing in Indy. It doesn't matter. All require you to get in your car to get just about anywhere you need to go. I'm in one of the Carmel apartments now where after just 2.5 short years one of the kitchen cabinet doors is crooked and lawn and property maintenance seems to be lacking my old Indianapolis apartment which cost $300 less. This is one of the new star apartments. As they keep building throughout the area "deals" will start popping up creating shoppers. If your property is falling apart after year 3 what will it look like after year 5 or 10??? Why would one stay here if they could move to a new Broad Ripple in 2 to 3 years or another part of the Far Northside?? The complexes aren't going to let the "poor" move in without local permission so that's not that problem, but it the occupancy rate drops suddenly because the "Young" people moved back to Indy then look out.

  5. Why are you so concerned about Ace hardware? I don't understand why anyone goes there! Every time ive gone in the past, they don't have what I need and I end up going to the big box stores. I understand the service aspect and that they try to be helpful but if they are going to survive I think they might need to carry more specialty parts.
