HAMMOND | Bill Jamerson presents “Dollar-A-Day Boys: A Musical Tribute to the Civilian Conservation Corps” at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Hammond Public Library, 564 State St.
As most people know, in 1889 Standard Oil broke ground (after quietly buying up property cheap) for a new refinery outside the Chicago city limits. An army of carpenters erected 85 houses for the skilled workmen coming here from the company's Eastern refineries. Thus began the area later kno…
In honor of the start of Women’s History Month and my own dear Mom, in retirement in the warm climes of Arizona, I present to you the lessons she taught me over the years.
This Sunday is the first Sunday of March, but many of us in Whiting will remember it as the last Sunday at three of our Catholic churches.
When next this column appears in print, it will be Women’s History Month, so I thought what the heck, close enough.
Newspapers are filled with stories about what the Calumet Region will do with its rich land. The next invasion should be the elbowing into the region of lusty information age companies.
It's evidently report card time again. That was always a time of high anxiety if you went to a parochial school.

For the last couple of weeks, the film industry has been in the spotlight with the Golden Globes, People's Choice, Screen Actors Guild and the Film Critics Award shows on TV, and I've sat through all of them. Naturally, I am looking forward to the Academy Awards (on March 2) as well.
Super Bowl XLVIII. . . I am sure looking forward to a much shorter title.
Last week we went to the Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago to see a production of "Tribes" by Nina Raine.
