Oh joy! The new roundabout in Valparaiso isn’t even completed yet and the complaints have started ... Impeach Mayor Costas because of the progress and improvements he’s made in this city during his years in office? I don’t think so! Welcome to the 21st century. The roundabouts are here to stay, so get used to them!

I can appreciate keeping the block of Napoleon by the Valparaiso City Hall as a historic brick paved street, but does it have to be a tank trap?

When people hear I grew up in Gary they couldn’t believe it. They always equated it with crime and drugs. They have no idea how beautiful Gary was in the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s. We had the best parks and places to go. We could walk anywhere at night. Everybody was kid- or family-oriented. Gary was a beautiful city and a beautiful town and I’m glad that I grew up there.

You say a job well done on Hamstrom Road and Central Avenue! What about all the manhole covers being almost three inches lower then the road. It’s like avoiding pot holes. So please don’t give credit for a botched job.
