So far, Elanco has been a textbook case for the benefits of spinoffs—for both the parent company divesting the business and the division gaining its independence.
Gov. Eric Holcomb and Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett this week each made crucial announcements—the first about racial-equality efforts and the second about downtown safety—that we wholeheartedly welcome, even as we’re disappointed they didn’t come sooner.

In a pandemic, we don’t want people waiting in line to cast votes in person—just like we don’t want them crowded together anyplace else.
The project still faces hurdles—including that Kite must line up financing. But we’re pleased that such a splashy project with so much potential upside is off the drawing board and on its way toward becoming reality.
Considerations about whether students should be in school are about far more than just whether it’s the best learning environment.
