VALPARAISO | Jeff Good couldn't point to the single thing that put him on top of a three-way race in the Republican primary in the Porter County Commissioner 2nd District race Tuesday.
CENTER TOWNSHIP | Doug Miller wants to be the first new person to hold the Center Township trustee position in 32 years. Bob McCasland wants to be the last to hold it.

Chris Chocola is not a clown.
On New Year's Day, Indiana's four freshman members of the U.S. House voted against the so-called fiscal cliff deal. If the deal hadn't passed — and it did by a 257 to 167 margin — most middle class families would have seen their taxes go up somewhere in the $2,000- to $3,000-a-year range.
