A Monumental Task

Saturday, May 29th, 2010

I’ve had a couple weeks to think now about the potential closing of Monument Circle to vehicular traffic as part of a possible city plan to turn the Circle into a destination spot and increase pedestrian activity.  After some careful thought and talking to a lot of people who use the Circle frequently, I don’t […]

Indy Going, Going, Gone

Friday, May 28th, 2010

The City of Indianapolis is coming to the aid of Indy Go.  Mayor Greg Ballard announced a plan to provide the financially ailing bus system with short-term cash, while city leaders look for long-term funding solutions. From my vantage point, the big challenge for the city is going to be to convince people to actually […]

Thursday’s Thoughts

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

As we get ready to go into Memorial Day weekend, here are a few things to ponder… The Indianapolis Water Works Board apparently hasn’t been able to meet on the transfer of  the city’s water and waste water facilities to Citizens Gas because the Board can’t reach a quorum.   This has been going on for […]

New Attack or Old Argument

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

Indiana Democrats  are continuing their line of attack against Republican U.S. Senate nominee Dan Coats regarding his lobbying activity. State Chairman Dan Parker Tuesday called on Coats to fully disclose the list of lobbying clients that he worked for while in D.C.  and said Coats can’t hide behind attorney-client privilege for two reasons. First, attorney-client […]

Another Day in Carmel

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

As if a $2 million hazing lawsuit wasn’t enough, Carmel schools and taxpayers are facing more litigation.  This time from a parent who claims a Carmel school bus driver harassed and intimidated his daughters and the school district did nothing about it. Ed Zimmer says in the November of 2008 his daughter made comments during […]

Criminal Fences

Monday, May 24th, 2010

One of the big problems facing the City of  Indianapolis, as well as other major and minor cities, is abandoned houses.   There are an estimated 8,000-10,000 abandoned homes in the city.  Abandoned homes lower property values and are magnets for crime and urban blight. The city has taken a number of steps to fight the […]

What’s Wrong With This Picture?

Monday, May 24th, 2010

My brother and his wife were recently shopping in Wal-Mart and came across these Barbie dolls on display.   Take a good look at the Black one and tell me if you see the same thing I do?

Voices Against Violence

Monday, May 24th, 2010

I attended an east side rally Saturday afternoon of citizens, primarily mothers, who were protesting the increase in violence in their community.   It is always good to see people step up and take responsibility and actions in their own communities, however, the problem is always one abut staying in the fight for the long haul […]

Older, But Not Wiser

Sunday, May 23rd, 2010

Today marks the day your favorite political blogger was born.  In honor of that, I’m taking the day off to relax and reflect on how I netted the pretty sweet deal of getting paid to tell people what I think.  Back tomorrow.

Time to Be the Bad Guy

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010

If any of you thought more highly of me after yesterday’s post involving the Carmel hazing,  this one will probably put things back where they rightly should be. This time I am talking about the alleged Indianapolis police “beating” of a 15-year old during an arrest last Sunday.  According to the Indy Star,  the beating […]
