Thumbsup :: Thumbsdown 

New cultural district. After first lumping Indiana Avenue - once the core of the city's African-American community - in with White River State Park, officials have now designated the area as its own Cultural District. This move allows the process of community planning to begin and will eventually bring new funds and programs to the downtown neighborhood.
Big dollars, outmoded ideas. In an era when the only thing vanishing faster than farmland is fossil fuels, the impoverished State of Indiana has received federal approval for extending I-69 from Indianapolis to Evansville. While the new highway will save 27 minutes for drivers, it will cost nearly $2 billion - $400 million of that paid directly by Hoosiers.
The irony is too much to bear. The Gannett-owned INtake gave a thumbs-up last week to the Greenwood protestors who blocked a new Wal-Mart. After all, Gannett, the largest newspaper chain in the country (The Indianapolis Star, USA Today, etc.), could easily be considered the Wal-Mart of newspaper publishers. Fight the power, dudes!
