Lowell is in West Creek and Cedar Creek townships. As of the 2010 census, there were 9,276 people living here. The town encompasses a little more than 5 square miles.
The fall in Northwest Indiana never fails to surprise, and this year was no exception. The success of our One Region program in Northwest Indiana and our Best of the Region publications that unite the whole Lake Michigan area continues to amaze me. This year's One Region meeting was sweet, w…
Wow! Where does the time go? It seems like only yesterday that Julie and I were gearing up for Memorial Day and to get the summer started. I blinked and now Labor Day is just a memory. While I’m always sad to see summer go, I don’t think we let much grass grow under our feet as it was a fun-…

The Baby Boomer generation remembers a time when Labor Day once marked the end of summer, as they returned to the classroom following this federal holiday.
Ruben Mendez, Hobart | "It's hard to define. A lot of Americans are lazy, but there are a lot of hard workers, too. The good workers don't get the opportunity to shine and get a better position."
Kyle Long, Valparaiso | "I admire people that get up and provide for their family and do what needs to get done. Benefits are much better, but with the daily expenses the dollar goes less (far) than it did."
