Family of Michael Jackson sends thanks for kindness
On behalf of myself and my family, I would like to thank the citizens of Gary, Northwest Indiana and from around the world who participated in the tribute for my son, Michael.
May I give special thanks to the firemen, policemen, facilities managers, streets and sanitation workers and all the other volunteers who were kind enough to give of their effort and their valuable time.
We have frequently returned to Gary. We love Gary. We want everyone to know how warm and special the reception was for my family and grandchildren. For those who hosted the events and provided the keepsakes to us, we want you to know that they are cherished and will be placed in prominent places in my home in California and at our 2300 Jackson St. location.
Finally, may I say that we were extremely impressed to witness the large number of talented youth, whose awesome skills were on display for the pleasure and enjoyment of us all. I hope the success attained by my son will inspire countless young people to reach their fullest potential.
My son, Michael Joseph Jackson, affectionately known as the “King of Pop,” was much greater as a person and humanitarian. If anyone wants to pay the most respect and honor to his legacy, take the time to love everyone, help everyone you can, and cherish family with all your heart and soul.
“We are the world.” May God bless you.
Chick-fil-A CEO is right in his beliefs, running his business
So, Sandy Sailer of Crown Point thinks Dan Cathy is wrong in his beliefs or is trying to tell him how to run his business.
He is dead right in what he believes; all gay marriages are wrong. All she has to do is read her Bible, and stop being a bigot.
Cathy did not use his Chick-fil-A restaurant in any wrong way. He just said what was on his mind, and there is nothing wrong with that. As for the Bible, traditional marriages are the only ones right by God. Sailer needs to mind her own business and let Cathy run his business.
As for the Democrats, they only care about making those worthless illegals citizens and ruining this great country.

Obama will have millions and millions of dollars, too
Annie Nolan is upset with the Republicans because she believes they are trying to buy the presidential election.
Annie says Republicans have millions of dollars. Two questions: Barack Obama plans to raise $1 billion for his re-election. Isn’t $1 billion a lot of money, Annie?
I would think so, but Annie apparently does not have a problem, as long as it is her candidate who has a lot of money.
Obama attended more than 100 fundraisers this year and has yet to meet with the person responsible for job creation in his administration. Annie, does Obama really care about job creation? Just asking.
