How come former Gary mayor Scott King now seems to defend all of the real crooks?

Gary Councilwoman Marilyn Krusas didn’t pay federal income taxes since 1991. She then tried to hide an inheritance so that she wouldn’t have to pay her back taxes. Her attorney Scott King called her a person of integrity. Does he own a dictionary?

High fives to county councilmen Eldon Strong and Dan Dernulc. We need to make serious changes not band-aid the problem with more taxes. Why not give their plan a chance. What are you so afraid of?

If you haven’t visited the “new” Lake County Public Library on U.S. 30 (now called Merriville branch), I encourage you to visit and take advantage of the wonderful resource it is. Oh, and thanks to staff member Debbie for the insightful tour!

What is going on with gasoline prices in Northwest Indiana? I just got back from Kansas and paid 70 to 73 cents less per gallon in Kansas, Missouri and Illinois than I paid when I got home to Valparaiso. Even Chicago prices, with all their added taxes, are lower than ours by 22 cents.
