HAMMOND │ Local residents who rely on public transportation and hope to attend the 2014 South Shore Air Show at Fair Oaks Farms may get to do so.
The issue between Everybody Counts and the Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Authority is simple. NIRPC isn't complying with the terms of an agreement they signed in federal court, after a class action lawsuit was filed on behalf of people with disabilities throughout Lake County.
Since my arrival in Northwest Indiana six months ago, I've made it a point to get involved in a number of organizations and participated in scores of community meetings to get acquainted with my new home. I made a conscious decision not to write my first column until I felt I was familiar en…
Valparaiso is planning for a bus/train depot as part of a transit-oriented development. It's a sign of the popularity of public transportation.
Anyone using the South Shore or other public transportation had better grab the first empty seat.
Picture light rail or a rapid transit bus running every 10 minutes down Broadway through Gary, maybe all the way to Crown Point.
I have represented the proposed Illiana Corridor area for the past 27 years at all levels of government, including local, county and now state.
VALPARAISO | The V-Line buses that critics once said were filled with invisible riders now carry so many people the city is extending hours and adding routes to try to accommodate them.
CROWN POINT | Protesters waved signs and chanted Wednesday outside Crown Point City Hall over what they said is their right to free speech.
It has been years since U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky began talking about extending South Shore service along the West Lake Corridor, but little has been accomplished. Visclosky is calling for action, and we're right beside him.
Over the last year, the presidents and chancellors associated with the region's institutions of higher learning have published commentaries on the 10 chapters of One Region's 2012 Profile of Northwest Indiana Report.
DYER | With its funding drastically slashed, South Lake County Community Services has come to Dyer asking for help.
The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission’s website states NIRPC “provides a forum that enables the citizens of Northwest Indiana to address regional issues relating to transportation, the environment and community, and economic development.” Unfortunately, that forum has certain…
Today you will most likely take part in some activity celebrating our nation and freedom in general. If you live in Northwest Indiana, chances are you will access these activities by automobile, even if they might be in walking or biking distance from your house. It is very unlikely you will…
The federal government's concerns about how accessible the Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission office is to people who rely on public transportation ought to be a reminder of the need to create the regional bus service the region needs.
After a tense, white-knuckle, nail-biting process, it's finally official. Lake County has adopted an income tax, just like every other Indiana county. Now it's time to make sure the money is spent wisely.
The South Shore Convention and Visitors Authority will be 30 years old on July 1. Throughout my tenure as president/CEO of the organization, we have led the region's hospitality industry in a wide array of issues, and I can assure you we have no intention of resting on our laurels now.
I suspect state Rep. Ed Soliday, R-Valparaiso, limped home from the Indiana General Assembly a bitter and beaten man.
The path to extension of commuter rail service to south Lake County has been stalled for years, but not derailed. The Indiana General Assembly's study of the issue this summer could finally grease the wheels of progress.
Tuesday's 4-3 preliminary vote on an income tax for Lake County should not be seen as an opening salvo against the county's taxpayers. Rather, it's a step toward coming to grips with reality.
