Bill would help educationRestricted Content

March 23, 2013
I write in support of Senate Bill 207, which reinstates in-state tuition rates to undocumented students who were enrolled in a state college or university in 2011.

Drug testing downsideRestricted Content

March 16, 2013
Sheila Suess Kennedy hit the nail on the head with her [March 11] column on drug testing for welfare recipients.

Ulterior motive at WFYI?Restricted Content

March 16, 2013
If National Public Radio [March 4] really wanted to draw more people to the terrestrial radio station, and maybe WFYI’s website, the billboard message would read, for example, “Poetry-writing mechanics listen to NPR on 90.1 FM, WFYI.

Service matches students with meaningful internshipsRestricted Content

March 16, 2013
Bruce Hetrick made a great point in his [March 11] column “Ten tips to help those seeking jobs or internships,” about how much stronger a résumé becomes when an internship experience is featured front and center.

Tax break, rebate laudedRestricted Content

March 9, 2013
I have a message for Mr. Madison, Mr. Odle and Ms. Leighty [March 4 Forefront]: If you don’t want your rebate, return it, but let me keep mine.
More

Truth hasn't changedRestricted Content

March 9, 2013
Peter Rusthoven’s [Feb. 18 ] column “‘Relevance’ is irrelevant” could not have been more on point. The world view, as seen through liberal media, is that not just the Roman Catholic Church but Christianity in general needs to “become more relevant to an increasingly secular world.

Sequestration piece spot-onRestricted Content

March 9, 2013
While I don’t always agree with [Greg Morris], he was spot on with this [Feb. 25] column. Excellent job on this huge issue for the future of our America. ____________ Albert Wurster Noblesville

Take the federal moneyRestricted Content

March 9, 2013
There are good reasons to feel optimistic about the changes taking place as a result of health care reform. More people will have access to insurance through health insurance marketplaces, and many will be able to take advantage of tax credits to afford this new coverage.

Don't subsidize Indianapolis Motor SpeedwayRestricted Content

March 2, 2013
I seriously question the advisability of our state, city or county providing monetary support to sports organizations, and certainly Indianapolis Motor Speedway [Feb. 18].
More

Hempstead needs a gripRestricted Content

March 2, 2013
I surely hope Sarah Hempstead [Feb. 25] was joking when she suggested we ask anybody about Indianapolis—inferring, I would guess, a blank stare.
More

Put citizens firstRestricted Content

March 2, 2013
Are there not any really decent people to run for Congress [Maurer column, Feb. 18]? Too many of these candidates have the ability to speak smoothly, show an engaging personality and make a good impression. The real essence of their character is not revealed until they are caught taking advantage of their slick-lip shenanigans.
More

Morris column hit homeRestricted Content

March 2, 2013
I enjoyed Greg Morris’ [Feb. 25] column. However, I wish he had taken it one step further to explain the absurdity of these so called “sequestration” cuts as they relate to baseline budgeting.
More

Marijuana possession shouldn't be a crimeRestricted Content

February 23, 2013
In response to Deborah Daniels’ [Feb. 4] column regarding legalization of marijuana, everyone can agree that we should protect children from harm—there is no debate there.
More

Radio's real problemRestricted Content

February 16, 2013
As a former radio personality (NPR and later WHAS-AM 840 in Louisville and other stations) and broadcast operations manager and intern supervisor at the University of Louisville), I continue to shake my head at Emmis and boss Jeff Smulyan’s total swivet with cell phone operators for refusing to put radio tuners on their phones or switch them on if they exist.
More

Buses, yes, but no railRestricted Content

February 9, 2013
I support fully the improvement of the bus system in the metro area [Morris column, Jan. 28]. It is a necessity and the responsibility of government to provide access to those who need this service efficiently and cost effectively.
More

Don't expand vouchersRestricted Content

February 9, 2013
I say no to expansion of Indiana’s school voucher program, already the most liberal in the nation when it comes to taking public money and moving it to private—mostly religious—schools. I ask the Legislature, particularly the GOP super-majority, to do more for the “system of common schools” they promised to support when they swore to uphold Indiana’s Constitution.
More

Cursive is antiquatedRestricted Content

February 9, 2013
In a political climate where jobs is the watchword of every campaign, I am confused and saddened by the state Senate Education Committee’s 7-4 vote endorsing a bill that would mandate the teaching of cursive writing in elementary school.
More

Ben Davis university models possibilitiesRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
Thank you for the comprehensive [Jan. 14] story on the accomplishments of the students of Ben Davis University High School.
More

Rusthoven was bigotedRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
Far from credible criticism of “the liberal media double standard,” I interpreted Peter Rusthoven’s [Jan. 21] opinion piece “Double Standards on Israel” as an exercise in the expression of bias and bigotry.
More

Cut some freshman sportsRestricted Content

February 2, 2013
I am in total agreement with Benner’s [Jan. 7] suggestion of making incoming college freshmen ineligible for varsity sports.
More

Clark complicates gay marriage debateRestricted Content

January 26, 2013
Why does Micah Clark [Jan. 7 Viewpoint] blow the subject up into one of these all-inclusive ideological tornados?
More

Gun column hit markRestricted Content

January 26, 2013
Thank you for Peter J. Rusthoven's column. What a well-written, well-thought-out editorial, with substantiating articles, to better support the fact that enacting gun laws doesn't disarm the criminals.
More

Guns laws workRestricted Content

January 26, 2013
I thought it would be impossible to write about gun laws after the Newtown tragedy and not talk about the bulbous magazine clips that allow a sane or insane person to fire hundreds of rounds from an automatic weapon in seconds, but Peter Rusthoven [Jan. 7] managed to do the impossible.
More

Respect emotions in gun debateRestricted Content

January 19, 2013
Commentaries by Peter Rusthoven as well as others in Forefront [Jan. 7] do not treat two sides of fear.
More

Another side of the income debateRestricted Content

January 19, 2013
I read [in the Dec. 31 IBJ], with great dismay, that a millionaire lawyer is not able to charge his clients as much as an attorney in another state.

  1. So much for Eric Holder's conversation about race. If white people have got something to say, they get sued over it. Bottom line: white people have un-freer speech than others as a consequence of the misnamed "Civil rights laws."

  2. I agree, having seen three shows, that I was less than wowed. Disappointing!!

  3. Start drilling, start fracking, and start using our own energy. Other states have enriched their citizens and nearly elminated unemployment by using these resources that are on private land. If you are against the 'low prices' of discount stores, the best way to allow shoppers more choice is to empower them with better earnings. NOT through manipulated gov mandated min wage hikes, but better jobs and higher competitive pay. This would be direct result of using our own energy resources, yet Obama knows that Americans who arent dependent of gov welfare are much less likely to vote Dem, so he looks for ways to ensure America's decline and keep its citizens dependent of gov.

  4. Say It Loud, I'm Black and Ashamed: It's too bad that with certain "black" entertainment events, it seems violence and thuggery follows and the collateral damage that it leaves behinds continues to be a strain on the city in terms of people getting hurt, killed or becoming victims of crimes and/or stretching city resources. I remember shopping in the Meadows area years ago until violence and crime ended make most of the business pack you and leave as did with Lafayette Square and Washington Square. Over the past 10 to 12 years, I remember going to the Indiana Black Expo Soul Picnic in Washington Park. Violence, gang fights and homicides ended that. My great grandmother still bears the scares on her leg from when she was trampled by a group of thugs running from gun fire from a rival gang. With hundreds of police offices downtown still multiple shootings, people getting shot downtown during Black Expo. A number of people getting shots or murdered at black clubs around the city like Club Six on the west side, The Industry downtown, Jamal Tinsley's shot out in front of the Conrad, multiple fights and shootings at the skating rinks, shootings at Circle Center Mall and shooting and robberies and car jackings at Lafayette Mall. Shootings and gang violence and the State Fair. I can go on and on and on. Now Broad Ripple. (Shaking head side to side) Say It Loud, I'm Black and I'm Ashamed.

  5. Ballard Administration. Too funny. This is the least fiscally responsive administration I have ever seen. One thing this article failed to mention, is that the Hoosier State line delivers rail cars to the Amtrak Beech Grove maintenance facility for refurbishment. That's an economic development issue. And the jobs there are high-paying. That alone is worth the City's investment.
