Quickly’s Neighbors, Dec. 6

Updated: January 7, 2013 7:14AM



I live in Kouts and I just want to give a compliment to the kids (both younger and teens). I have a 10-month-old son and every time I’m struggling with a stroller or walking down the street, the kids of Kouts will either hold doors or politely step to the side to let us by, and while doing so they always smile and say hello.

I thought they were done working on the new bridge
on Indiana 49. Did we pay
them a bonus for finishing early? Because they’ve stopped working.

I’m gonna go out and buy a grass cutter and all kinds
of lawn equipment. I’m gonna call the City of Portage and
see if I can get a job cutting some of their grass plots. Instead of planting wildflowers that don’t cost any money for maintenance, they plant grass. Wildflowers are beautiful and they don’t cost anything to maintain.

The people of Gary have to take responsibility for the decay of Tolleston, Miller and Glen Park.

Two boats stored in a front yard, put up on a block and near a fire hydrant? Only in Crown Point.
