Isn’t it great to live in a country where citizens have a say in who serves in every public position from president to school board? Wouldn’t it be even better if citizens actually took that privilege seriously and went to the polls?

Tech-savvy employers are turning to social-media tools to locate and screen applicants for positions. And with increasing competition for jobs, employers are trying to both find the best applicants available and know as much as possible about them.

ALTOM: Are you disaster-ready, dust-induced or not?

May 8, 2010
Tim Altom
You know you should back up your data for redundancy. But you can’t back up an entire airline industry. That’s a lesson we learned recently when a volcano with the cat-crossing-the-keyboard name of “Eyjafjallajökull” exhaled tons of volcanic dust into the clear skies over Europe and brought aviation worldwide almost to a literal grinding halt.

EDITORIAL: Don't abandon basic services because of tax caps

May 1, 2010
 IBJ Staff
The property tax caps that are all but sure to become part of the Indiana constitution after a voter referendum this November are definitely good politics—and might prove to be good policy. We won’t know for sure until we see what becomes of two property-tax funded entities that are starving as the caps fully phase in.

  1. What became of this project? Anyone know?

  2. Scott, could you post an enlarged photo of the exterior of the building? This will be a great addition to Walnut Street. This area will only continue to develop with additions like this. Also, please give us more updates on the "Cultural Trail light" expansion. Also a great move for the city, as long as there is maintenance money set aside.

  3. Great story IBJ! Citizens don't have a real sense of the financial magnitude of supporting Indy's sports and tourism sector. The CIB was a brilliant idea for creating a highly integrated public-private partnership to support this sector from the economic activity it generates. Unfortunately, most folks think the benefits of that economic activity accrue directly to the City budget, and it doesn't. So though the CIB is facing lean times (covering its costs while maintaining minimally acceptable reserves), the City is operating with deficit - less tax revenue than expenses each year - with a very fragile reserve balance. That's why it's so challenging for the City to fund basic needs or new intitatives (e.g. pre-k education; new jail), and some credit rating agencies have downgraded Indy from it's past stellar AAA status. More reporting on City finances would be welcomed.

  4. Sure, I'll admit that it bugs me to see that the IBJ.COM censors it's blog posts almost as much as the D of I does when someone points out the falsehoods and fabrications. _____But I think it bothers me almost as much that Captain/Defender/Disciple get his yanked too. You see, those of us with a sense of integrity, humanity, compassion, and a need for fact based opinion WANT to see all of his screeds posted. It makes our point so much better than we can do it ourselves.

  5. We're conflating two very different topics. Voter fraud is a myth and excessive gun violence is all too real. I just hope rational gunowners decide to stop being shouted down by the, well, let's call them "less rational" ones.
