Several interesting nuggets today ...

El Bodegon, a Latin market and tapas bar, is slated to open soon along 96th Street in Fishers. The shop will feature a grocery store with fine food and wines from South America and Spain, and a dining area serving small plates including empanadas and paella. The space, formerly home to the short-lived Tossed chain, also will be available for catering and events. The market is in a strip anchored by Beauty Brands and Panera. More information is here.

Apple Store at The Fashion Mall at Keystone closed for remodeling on Monday and is scheduled to reopen Sept. 25, in time to welcome holiday shoppers. No word on whether the store revamp will be designed to showcase the company's rumored answer to the Kindle reading device. The store is in the western portion of the mall near Williams Sonoma.

Post office branches in three Indianapolis neighborhoods are targeted for closure by the U.S. Postal Service, according to a list released Sept. 2. The branches include offices at 456 N. Meridian St., 8804 W. Washington St., and 1144 S. Belmont St. The branches are among more than 400 nationwide facing consolidation or closure because of a budget crisis. The Postal Service actually reduced the closure list by 200 since July but all three Indianapolis-area locations remain on the chopping block.

S&K Menswear stores along U.S. 31 South in Greenwood and 82nd Street in Castleton have closed, along with more than 100 other stores across the country. The Virginia-based chain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization in February but later had to switch to Chapter 7. The liquidation began in June.

  • The post office in Nora may be closing also due to the fact that Target owns the land it sits on and may build an addition to accomodate a super Target store now that Kroger is opening across the street.

  1. I never thought I'd see the day when a Republican Mayor would lead the charge in attempting to raise every tax we have to pay. Now it's income taxes and property taxes that Ballard wants to increase. And to pay for a pre-K program? Many studies have shown that pre-K offer no long-term educational benefits whatsoever. And Ballard is pitching it as a way of fighting crime? Who is he kidding? It's about government provided day care. It's a shame that we elected a Republican who has turned out to be a huge big spending, big taxing, big borrowing liberal Democrat.

  2. Why do we blame the unions? They did not create the 11 different school districts that are the root of the problem.

  3. I was just watching an AOW race from cleveland in 1997...in addition to the 65K for the race, there were more people in boats watching that race from the lake than were IndyCar fans watching the 2014 IndyCar season finale in the Fontana grandstands. Just sayin...That's some resurgence modern IndyCar has going. Almost profitable, nobody in the grandstands and TV ratings dropping 61% at some tracks in the series. Business model..."CRAZY" as said by a NASCAR track general manager. Yup, this thing is purring like a cat! Sponsors...send them your cash, pronto!!! LOL, not a chance.

  4. I'm sure Indiana is paradise for the wealthy and affluent, but what about the rest of us? Over the last 40 years, conservatives and the business elite have run this country (and state)into the ground. The pendulum will swing back as more moderate voters get tired of Reaganomics and regressive social policies. Add to that the wave of minority voters coming up in the next 10 to 15 years and things will get better. unfortunately we have to suffer through 10 more years of gerrymandered districts and dispropionate representation.

  5. Funny thing....rich people telling poor people how bad the other rich people are wanting to cut benefits/school etc and that they should vote for those rich people that just did it. Just saying..............
