Years ago friends of mine left me here in Hammond and moved to Dyer, Munster, Schererville, St. John and beyond. Now some of them want me to help pay for building a South Shore track and providing service for them to ride to Chicago.

Within walking distance of my home, I have Pace bus service to downtown Chicago, a South Shore station, a first class grocery store, banks, restaurants, hospital, government office, legal and medical service, entertainment, a new charter school, parks and numerous other perks.

Maybe my friends should talk to the banker that gambled with them on that expensive home out there to finance their train service, or move back to Hammond. It's less expensive here and there are more services.

The region is just fine. Location, location, location.
