Who is going to pay for a lakefront festival in the city of Gary? These things don’t run for free. A city that is in dire straits financially can’t spend money frivolously.

I see the yellow shame sign out again at Silhavy and LaPorte in Valparaiso. These guys are still holding out for their $75 per hour jobs that nobody can afford. Us commoners all need to support the stores that resist this movement.

Congratulations to Christopher A. Williams, who is autistic, on being the salutatorian of the 2013 class at West Side Academy and for being highlighted on CBS2 on the news segment “Someone you should know.”

It is sad to see the Urchel factory leave Valparaiso, but enlightening that they will be building in Chesterton. They are truly a model company that provides good paying jobs to local citizens.

I wish all of the employees of Lake Station’s City Hall would park in the gravel lot just south of Fairview. I was told that is the main reason that corner lot was purchased — employee parking. Several times when I have had to go to City Hall I have noticed most of the cars in the north lot are city owned.
