Our team isn’t in the major leagues and our stadium isn’t what you would call staggering, but we keep going back to the ballpark time and time again. This is how the Indianapolis Indians have strengthened our community through outreach and local programming.
Being here sometimes six days out of the week allows me to experience the neighborhood and all it has to offer, and it’s much more than nightlife fueled by PBR.
If this week’s April showers didn't tip you off, spring has finally arrived. And with spring comes yardwork season. And with yardwork season comes mulch. Piles and piles of mulch. For the past few years, we’ve worked with GreenCycle to make their name synonymous to those piles of mulch being spread around central Indiana.
We aren’t entirely sure where this week went. Like everyone in Indy, we were tossed headfirst into the RFRA whirlwind that threatened to devastate the good reputation of Indiana and our beloved capital city.

How can we keep ourselves from taking to the streets screaming when stress piles up? Local yoga guru Alyssa Pfenning enlightens me to the positives of yoga for the workplace.
Journalism has had a tough few years, what with everyone claiming the imminent death of the written word, and those people, like me, who chose to study it have had an equally difficult time. But, through all the grumbles, set backs and face lifts to the field, we both prevailed. In fact, thanks to journalism, I'm now a copywriter.
