Northwest Indiana has languished in mediocrity for far too long, largely because of an unwillingness to raise or spend money.
Mike Repay’s yard signs prior to the 2012 Lake County commissioner’s Democratic primary were emphatic — “No new taxes.”
Columnist Rich James' April 14 description of the Indiana GOP's school gun legislation as "Big Brother" (author George Orwell's symbol of an all-powerful government) is misleading and needs to be challenged.
I think columnist Rich James needs to read his columns before they're printed.
What if Hammond had three mayors? Or Valparaiso? Or Crown Point?
I take some offense to Rich James’ column which implies U.S. Sen. Dan Coats had his soul purchased by the NRA.
There are no walls, no checkpoints and no border guards asking for residency cards when you pass from Lake County into Porter County. The same can be said when you slip from Porter County into LaPorte County.
Rich James says that Sen. (Dan) Coates dances to the NRA’s tune. It’s called representing your constituency and that tune is our national anthem. That is undoubtedly why James didn’t like it. As for Sen. Coates selling his soul – James sold his soul a long time ago to Saul Olinski. The Times…
I suspect state Rep. Ed Soliday, R-Valparaiso, limped home from the Indiana General Assembly a bitter and beaten man.
There’s nothing funny about abuse of power, but I couldn't let it pass without a good belly laugh.
If there were snail darters in Indiana, opponents of the Illiana Expressway likely would have used them to block the proposed highway.
Indiana Sen. Dan Coats sold his soul last week.
Rich James’ April 10 column regarding the proposed Lake County income tax incorporates two glaringly false assumptions:
Could it be any easier? Rich James, the mouthpiece of the Lake County Democrat machine, assures us county government is already cut to the bone. The county complex must be a ghost town? Nope, it’s a-buzzing.
I can’t help but keep thinking about Gov. Mike Pence’s obsession with cutting the state’s income tax by 10 percent.
Is the Rich James who wrote the column about the judges on following the law because it is the law, the same Rich James who back in February berated law enforcement for upholding the law as it pertains to illegal gambling?
Bravo to Rich James for his April 10 column. James exposed the two Republican members of the Lake County Council (Eldon Strong and Republican County Chairman Dan Dernulc) for playing politics with the Local Option Income Tax.
I’ve never met state Rep. Jim Lucas, a Republican from Seymour.
It’s time for Lake County Republicans to get in touch with reality when it comes to a county income tax.
If someone made a movie about the effort to name a new Lake Superior Court Juvenile Division judge, it would have to be rated PG-13.
