Last spring, as a part of my role on The Times Editorial Advisory Board, I wrote on the passing of a winter that all of us remember, yet most of us have tried to forget. As a part of that column, I mentioned that we in Northwest Indiana endure — through all that history, culture and nature t…
We are all familiar with the doctrine that separates church and state. Well, in Crown Point the line will be a bit blurry Sunday, Sept. 14. That’s when members of the First United Methodist Church will take on officers of the Crown Point Police Department in a game of flag football.
Spring, it seems, has finally arrived, or so it seems. The gunmetal gray snow that has stood at the end of my driveway like a frozen monument has finally been vanquished, and the first anemic sparrow arrived back in my yard from parts unknown. I must admit he looks worse for his winter wear,…
Christmas, of course, is drawing most of our attention and energy, yet lurking in the shadows is New Year's, and the daunting prospect of the 365 days ahead. The waning year makes us wistful for days and traditions past.

As a keen observer of the painfully obvious, I cannot help but take note that Christmas has once again come to Northwest Indiana.
My father was a man of great wisdom, most often conveyed in simple phrases that still strike home to me years after he said them.
October is here again. The air is cooler, the leaves are starting to turn, and my beloved Bears are giving me heart palpitations. Of course, October is also Halloween season, and for me (and apparently for many other middle-aged adolescents) that is a fun, spooky time -- a time to break out …
