Help, help! Can anyone tell me what to do to get rid of garter snakes? I live on the west side of Gary — very far west — and garter snakes are taking over my front yard. Please help.

I’d like to give a shout-out to the Hobart police and fire departments for the awesome National Night Out event that they put on. Great job.

I’m dating myself, but the Gary Community School Corp. nor any other city should have ever started bus transportation for students to go to school. Hell and high water, I had to walk, and I think if buses were just left for the handicapped and nobody else we wouldn’t have such a mess now.

I was just wondering if anyone is ever going to cut the forest preserve on 25th and Pennsylvania Street. I’ve lived here all my life and have never seen it so bad. You can’t even get to the fire hydrant. Can’t the city have somebody please cut the grass?
