Portage’s financial problems are not union-related as the union basher previously commented. They are a result of very poor spending decisions, like the half-abandoned higher learning center, buying up much of east Central Avenue in the old downtown district including half of the Portage Mall and turning it into vacant lots, and the continual buying of new vehicles and toys for the police department.

What is wrong with this world? A boy in Lake Station was suspended from school because he had a hit list. What could anyone have done to this boy to deserve this?

Just wondering if they have announced the winner of the community with the most unnecessary stop signs? I’m driving from Highland through East Chicago to go to the Bishop Noll basketball game and I think East Chicago is the winner. Basically a stop sign at every single street.

When you live in a city

that has a murder every six to seven days on average, and who knows how many robberies, break-ins, thefts and so on, how can you expect the police to worry about someone burning leaves?
