LETTER FROM THE INTERIM PUBLISHER
Into every person’s life will come an individual or two who truly make a difference. The same can be said for Northwest Indiana as a region.

Memorial Day weekend for our family—and that is our work and home family—was all about the first 73rd Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid (the sponsors encourage us to say the title exactly that way) held at Harbor Shores in Benton Harbor, Michigan. While I am not a seasoned vete…
