Would you pay more in taxes if it allowed Indianapolis to hire more police officers? The city wants hire 100 officers each year through 2018, but it will cost $30 million. Two of the funding options -- eliminating the homestead property tax credit or increasing a public safety tax -- would require residents to dip into their pocketbooks.

A record 32,000 firefighters will come to Indy this week. But don't worry, there isn't a fire; just a convention. You might see firefighters Downtown -- as well as some unique decorations welcoming them.

The Indiana Pacers and the city of Indianapolis have reached a deal to keep the team here for at least another 10 years. Indianapolis will provide $160 million to cover operating costs and facility upgrades.

What do you think of the deal?
The agreement locks the team into Bankers Life Fieldhouse for another 10 years, with three one-year renewal options, according to documents obtained by The Star.
