brittany poore should be mentioned under famous peoples —Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.39.210.187 (talk) 11:49, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Does anyone know who the Sioux FC are? I've lived in Zionsville for my entire life and I have no idea who these people are. I believe that they are a fantasy soccer team, so I'm going to delete them from the article. If anyone has some real info (sources), I'll be happy to change it back. --Zaszamonde —Preceding comment was added at 17:45, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Sioux FC is one of the many indoor soccer teams that play that was created by Zionsville High School Students, the are renowned throughout the school along with the Creep and The Super Smash Brothers —Preceding unsigned comment added by 149.159.40.88 (talk) 21:57, 20 October 2008 (UTC)


I removed the link to zionsvillein.com, since it seems to just be an ad for a real estate firm. I realize that zionsville.com is a real estate firm as well, but they have useful information on their site (restaurant locations, store information, stuff that is interesting to the local populace). zionsvillein.com seems to be a cheaply made site with no useful information (for example, all the photos of subdivisions look like they were taken from the entrance, without actually entering them -- a little shady). Whoever keeps adding the link, please provide a good reason for it being up there. --Blazeix —Preceding signed but undated comment was added at 14:27, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

I live on main st. and see horses more often than you would think. But the horse-drawn vehicles are gone. I used to see them all the time a couple years ago but since traffic has gotton worse they stopped.

I've not seen any "coaches" around Zionsville except for the local sports teams. How often are horse-drawn vehicles really seen there? (added without signing by Dogface)

The following was moved to the Discussion page, where contentiousness like this belongs:

Zionsville has not been "intentionally groomed" to give off a "village air"... Zionsville's brick main street has always been brick, and the whole town turns out to help "re-pave" when the bricks wear down. The other brick streets in the town have been paved over. The houses in the village have not been recreated to give off a village air, either... many are nicely refurbished, but most are original homes dating from the mid / late 19th century. Zionsville has intentionally passed zoning and building ordinances specifically designed to keep growth down and, yes, to conform to a specific look or style. Those sorts of rules have helped keep Zionsville a small, relatively charming community, with thriving independent shops and storefronts, when other nearby, similarly-sized communities (Carmel, many years ago, as well as Fishers and Westfield) have fallen victim to urban sprawl, and are now filled with big-box stores, national chains, and cookie-cutter neighborhoods with cookie-cutter houses, not to mention over-crowded schools and traffic nightmares. Zionsville has striven to maintain an unique identity in a midwest fast becoming completely homogeneous, and its citizens are proud that it doesn't look and feel like everytown, USA.

Ray Cortopassi IS notable, please leave him under "notable residents" section[edit]

For years, Ray Cortopassi was the evening news anchor for Indianapolis news station WRTV6. He is now president of the Zionsville Chamber of Commerce. For these reasons, he belongs under the "notable residents" section. Every so often, this entry is removed. I would like this removal activity to stop. The fact that no one has taken the time to write a Wikipedia article about him does not disqualify him from being listed in this section, IMO. 98.220.43.195 (talk) 19:42, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

You really haven't made a case for notability. Being president of a small town chamber of commerce is not notability. Anchor of the evening news can be, but Cortopassi was only WRTV anchor for 6 years and RTV isn't even the dominate station in Indianapolis -- a relatively small t.v. market. Can you make a better case for him than his short stint as the anchor of a secondary news station in a secondary market? Ncjon (talk) 21:02, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
He's president of the chamber of commerce for the town this very article is about!!!!! Are you kidding? And Indianapolis is a "relatively small TV market"? By whose standards? Not every city can be New York, Chicago or LA. Now, I'm guessing you consider WTHR the dominant station in Indianapolis? Because Cortopassi is a reporter for that station now as well, further adding to his continuing visibility and notability.98.220.43.195 (talk) 22:19, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
You still haven't made a case for notability. Nielsen ratings show WRTV is not the dominant station in Indianapolis. Check out television markets to see how far down Indianapolis is. Ncjon (talk) 01:45, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, Indianapolis is #24 out of 259. Not exactly obscure or anything. But I have to ask -- why do you care so much? As you say on your talk page, you're "just a dude" who lives in North Carolina. Why do you insist on reverting a perfectly good addition to an article on a town 1,000 miles away from you? Don't you have anything better to do than harass people you don't know who are simply trying to contribute to an article on a lovely Indiana town? 98.220.43.195 (talk) 01:48, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Not harassing anyone bud. I keep track of articles I'm interested in. That includes this one. And you still haven't made a case for general notability. Ncjon (talk) 11:22, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I have made a case for notability, on several fronts. You just don't want to accept it. Just because YOU don't feel he's notable is irrelevant to me. The fact that you are "keeping track" of this article by continuously deleting my entry, when you could just as easily leave it alone -- because the information is doing no harm being there -- means you are harassing me. Let it go. 98.220.43.195 (talk) 21:54, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Some editors take a stricter view of notability than others do, particularly when it comes to these lists of notable residents (notable alumni too). The usual standard of notability is that the individual either have a Wikipedia article about them, or would qualify per WP:BIO. I'm not sure that this individual would qualify. In any case, what sources do we have for him? Has a local peper done a profile, for example? We can start by adding links to those sources.   Will Beback  talk  22:19, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

don't take croshere off, he was a key role in many of the pacers playoff pushes, he is also my neighbor. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dacman22 (talkcontribs) 04:06, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

I didn't remove Croshere. He was out of place in the alphabetical list and I moved him up, then you re-added him so he was on the list twice. Ncjon (talk) 12:01, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
