Stuck for something to do this weekend? Start with one of Indy's most popular festivals, consider a concert among the critters, and then dig deeper into this week's A&E priority list.

Indian Market and Festival

June 22-23

Military Park

The Eiteljorg Museum of Indians and Western Art turns its back yard into a multifaceted festival grounds with music, storytelling, crafts (including pick bracelets inspired by the “Guitars” exhibition), dance (five-time world champion hoop dancer Tony Duncan) and more. A preview party Friday night includes a Southwest buffet, social time with artists, a chance to get in early bids on the work, and passes for the entire weekend. Details here

AACTfest

Through June 22

Center for the Performing Arts

Soon, some of the top names in musical theater will be either entertaining or honored at the Center for the Performing Arts (watch for more next week). This week, though, the center will house largely anonymous community theater creators from around the United States. They’ll be here for the American Association of Community Theaters’ annual conference. Why should you care? Well, while most theater companies go on summer hiatus, this is a chance to choose from 12 shows being performed—from a Grapevine, Texas, production of “Spring Awakening” to a Parkersburg, W.Va., take on “Tuesdays with Morrie.” Details here.

Zoolapalooza Concert Series

June 21

Indianapolis Zoo

The annual series returns with the first of five Friday night concerts free to zoo members and included with regular zoo admission. This year, the shows move to the open tent of the Party Pavilion, include Sun King beer sampling, shifting food options and free rides (on one of the actual rides, not the animals) until 7. First up, a June 21 performance by The Tides, accented by luau lettuce wraps and Hawaiian snow cones. Details here.

  1. The $104K to CRC would go toward debts service on $486M of existing debt they already have from other things outside this project. Keystone buys the bonds for 3.8M from CRC, and CRC in turn pays for the parking and site work, and some time later CRC buys them back (with interest) from the projected annual property tax revenue from the entire TIF district (est. $415K / yr. from just this property, plus more from all the other property in the TIF district), which in theory would be about a 10-year term, give-or-take. CRC is basically betting on the future, that property values will increase, driving up the tax revenue to the limit of the annual increase cap on commercial property (I think that's 3%). It should be noted that Keystone can't print money (unlike the Federal Treasury) so commercial property tax can only come from consumers, in this case the apartment renters and consumers of the goods and services offered by the ground floor retailers, and employees in the form of lower non-mandatory compensation items, such as bonuses, benefits, 401K match, etc.

  2. $3B would hurt Lilly's bottom line if there were no insurance or Indemnity Agreement, but there is no way that large an award will be upheld on appeal. What's surprising is that the trial judge refused to reduce it. She must have thought there was evidence of a flagrant, unconscionable coverup and wanted to send a message.

  3. As a self-employed individual, I always saw outrageous price increases every year in a health insurance plan with preexisting condition costs -- something most employed groups never had to worry about. With spouse, I saw ALL Indiana "free market answer" plans' premiums raise 25%-45% each year.

  4. It's not who you chose to build it's how they build it. Architects and engineers decide how and what to use to build. builders just do the work. Architects & engineers still think the tarp over the escalators out at airport will hold for third time when it snows, ice storms.
