I live a little north of Hebron and I have several blue jays that come around, but not as many as when I was a little guy. We had dozens at my folks’ house in Cedar Lake. They are mean birds; I have scars on top of my head to prove it.
At the Crown Point High School graduation, they should cut the speeches in half and let the families cheer for their graduates for a few seconds. They sure didn’t mind when we had to sit there and listen to the speakers go on and on. Everyone cheered for that.
Instead of Merrillville hiring all these police we don’t need, how about getting one of those wood chippers so town workers can go around the neighborhoods and pick up all the branches that blow down during storms like we had Saturday evening.
