Let’s not allow climate change to become as partisan an issue at home as it is on the national level. Home is where climate change is felt, after all. It’s where weather extremes take their toll, where extreme heat buckles roads and torrential rains overwhelm our sewer system.
We’re impressed with the work Indianapolis-based CSO Architects has done to try to bring a National Desert Storm and Desert Shield Memorial from concept to reality
House Speaker Brian Bosma and Senate President Pro Tem Rodric Bray said at a Nov. 18 panel discussion convened by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce that they will support legislation raising the smoking age.
That’s welcome news in the face of estimates that more than 90% of adult smokers start as teenagers.
Hogsett has set the table to tackle both problems by balancing the city’s budget during his first term. It’s time to use that fiscal stability to more aggressively attack the problems that keep Indianapolis from growing and achieving at the same level as some of its peers.
We’re confident that IMS and the racing series will benefit from having Penske, a proven businessman known as “The Captain,” at the helm. But that alone isn’t enough to ensure a new era of prosperity for the iconic, 110-year-old venue.
All four projects are worthy of funding. But what makes them special as a group is that they will serve such a diverse group of people—tech workers and startups, ex-offenders, homeless families and the African American community—while enhancing all of Indianapolis.
State legislators should be receptive. It’s a reasonable follow-up to the 2015 Regional Cities Initiative, which split $126 million in tax amnesty funds among three regions.

The Red Line has so far proven fairly popular, averaging some 7,000 riders a day. But there have been frustrations—especially in the consistency and timeliness of the buses’ arrivals and departures.
Hogsett and other elected officials have proposed solutions and funding to fight homelessness and panhandling, but all the general public sees is a problem getting worse.
We hope our Impact Indiana series—which has been packed full of statistics about corporate social responsibility—encourages business leaders to think not just about how encouraging volunteerism or getting involved in social issues can impact the community. It’s also about how such activities can bolster corporate bottom lines.
We wish other incentive deals had fostered such vigorous debate, such as the council’s decision last year to provide $2.9 million in TIF financing for Duke Realty Corp.’s new $28 million headquarters in Keystone at the Crossing—an area of the city that’s already a magnet for development.
Teens today are getting addicted to nicotine through vaping—without ever having tried a cigarette. And while that may be better than teens becoming addicted to smoking, it’s even better if they never start at all.
The Red Line (and its proposed companion routes, the Purple Line on the northeast side and the east-west Blue Line along Washington Street), along with more frequent service on all routes, is our best shot at giving commuters in car-centric Indianapolis a legitimate choice of how to travel.
