Welcome to Gary. First, they close the library, then, they close some of the schools, and now, they’re closing the courthouse. What’s next? I guess Gary will just have to go back to the Dark Ages.

I applaud all the groups and citizens in East Chicago and Gary that want to keep the child support court in Gary. If they are really serious, why don’t they divert some of the casino money to pay for it?

Valparaiso is not offering driving lessons for the roundabouts because officials made a mistake; they realized there are so many people who don’t know how to drive and simply cannot maneuver when yielding into a circle. I am glad they are trying to keep the rest of us safe. Love the roundabouts; thank you, Valparaiso.

I live in Union Township, in the Shorewood Forest subdivision, and I’d like to know why our cul-de-sacs never get plowed? They plow the streets, but never plow the cul-de-sacs.

There are too many day-care centers and beauty salons allowed in residential single-family dwelling neighborhoods. It’s ruining them. Other towns and cities do not allow local government to put up any day-care centers or beauty salons. It ruins the neighborhood.
