A story the other day told of some consultants looking for ideas for business development in East Chicago.
There was a person who mentioned a movie theater in North Harbor.
“How come we have to go to Schererville to see a movie?” the person lamented in this newspaper. But you can see this issue in many other cases as well.
One time I called up one of the mobile dog grooming companies, he asked, “Where you live?”
“East Chicago,” I answered.
“We don't go to East Chicago,” the guy told me.
It was awful to read that Dr. Alberto Jimenez was robbed at gunpoint in the middle of the day. A client of Dr. Jimenez was also robbed on Columbus Drive in January. About a week later, you would have seen a moving truck parked out in front of Jimenez's office on Columbus Drive. He “got out of Dodge.”
Too much violence!
