Opinion: Reorg battle: It’s your money


“Hey, it’s only taxpayer money, so let’s keep going.” An untold amount of cash has been expended on the reorganization battle involving Whitestown and Zionsville, both of which have doubled budgeted amounts because of legal fees. Just wait, because the costs will continue to rise if the case reaches the Indiana Supreme Court.  Let cooler heads prevail, progress ensue and a compromise surface. It’s not a bottomless well of money at the combatants’ disposal, and there are municipalities that must be served. Next thing we know, a tax increase will be foisted upon the citizens. Government.

Yahoo Travel justifiably has named the sugar cream pie at My Sugar Pie’s the best in Indiana. This Zionsville company has received many accolades for its many pies through the years. It’s all richly deserved, if not significantly contributing to one’s waistline. And speaking of contributors to expanding waistlines, Titus Bakery’s owners, Tom and Terry Rake of Zionsville, are basking in the afterglow of being selected as a giveaway site for Lionsgate’s installment of The Hunger Games. Kinda makes us want to vacuum up a tray of Pershings, the best donuts anywhere – period.

We’re not taking up the cause of Donald Trump (R-Billions) here, but what we believe he was saying when he fired off incendiary comments about closing the United States to Muslims was this: Until this broken nation with broken systems can get its collective broken brain repaired, were are not nearly as secure as the government would have us believe. We should be demanding that our leaders do whatever it takes to achieve that. Instead, we’re too busy lining up at midnight for doorbusters. It’s just pathetic.
