The story starts out with a little girl born more than four years ago to Mike and Mary Martinez.
What a difference a day or two makes in the weather in Northwest Indiana. Had to break out the winter coat today and I was wearing sandals two days ago. But don’t let the chill in the air deter you from some great October events right here in our fair city.
Here we go Portage! Be prepared for much to do in Portage this weekend and next in our fair city. Starting with “The King” himself.
Remember when you were young? You wanted to be older and be able to do more things like drive, vote and drink alcohol. It always seemed to me that once I reached a milestone, it wasn’t all that important to me anymore, it was just old-hat. I felt like all I did was get older and one step clo…
With school starting last week I’ve been thinking about the kids in our community and all the things various organizations do to help improve their quality of life.
At times I get questions from people who live here and are moving here, asking the difference between Portage and Portage Township.

Here we are almost a week after our wonderful 4th of July festivities. It was perfect weather this year which made for more spectators than I’ve seen in a long time. It almost seems like if it’s going to be super hot in Northwest Indiana, Independence Day always seems to be the hottest. With…
When I was young, we just hopped on our bikes and tore out into the street, off on another adventure. Now there are so many factors to consider when you send your kid out on a bicycle.
If you haven’t noticed in the last couple of years, Portage Township is on the move. Portage Township is the city of Portage, the town of Ogden Dunes and the unincorporated portion known as South Haven.

Love is truly in the air this week as Thursday is Valentine’s Day.
Happy New Year Portage. Although some would say; what’s so happy about it?

Labor Day has always been considered the official last day of summer and ushers in autumn.
PORTAGE | A group of consultants, led by the Chicago firm Houseal Lavigne Associates, will lead the city's efforts in creating a vision for the U.S. 20 corridor.
Here we are one week after one of the most exhausting and hottest days of the year thus far, the 4th of July. I was truly amazed and pleased at how many people were still out there early along the parade route claiming their space for the day’s events.
Good morning Portage; today is the 236th anniversary of our great country’s birth. We are still the new kid on the block as far as age goes in comparison to most other countries in this world but we are as great as any of them.
PORTAGE | Portage Rebuilding Together has rebuilt itself after a difficult year and volunteers will be tackling multiple projects on 10 homes April 28.
