Daymond East, Merrillville | "It would help out. Given the extent of traffic problems we have, I'd say anything that helps relieve congestion."
Arlyn Jacobus, Hebron | "I think it would be good for the trucks and get them off the expressway. I don't know about condemning all that farmland, though."
Roberta Reed, Gary | "Yes. Easy access to the south part of town would be improved. It would help the economy. I'm an expressway person, and I'd rather take the expressway than the back streets."
Jacquelin Giron, Gary | "I think they should. I-80/94 has a lot of traffic already, and when there is an accident you're delayed and there aren't other ways around it."
Lea Molina, Griffith | "I think it would help to ease the congestion. As long as the farmers are reimbursed for the land taken."
Corinne Stodola, Valparaiso | "If it would relieve truck traffic, then I'm for it. I believe we will always have truck traffic, so it's probably necessary."
Gavin Salmi, Crown Point | "It's not good. For one, insurance has risen like crazy with Obamacare. They've done some all right things, but it's not the best. The situation Obama was left with wasn't optimal."
Bill Egnatz, Portage | "I would rate them very low. They don't know how to compromise and deal. They are all interested in special interest groups. When they get together with the lobbyists, it doesn't work well for the people."
George Young, Hammond | "I really don't see Congress and Obama working together. Congress and the president aren't on the same page. They're not working with each other but against each other."
Alserdo Guerrero, Hammond | "I think a lot of people are against him as opposed to Bush. There's more pressure now. I don't see Obama and Congress together."
Curtis Dickerson, Merrillville | "On a one to 10 scale, a 3. I'm a Christian, and I'm not in agreement with laws that have been passed and the big government mentality. They're too involved in our lives. I like small government."
Marlene Zavesky, Crown Point | "On a zero to 10 scale I've give them a four. They don't seem to know what they're doing. Obama is in it for himself, and Congress doesn't know what they're doing."
Sharon R. Turner, Park Forest | "My happy dance. It's the dance I do when I jump out of bed. It's my celebration of life. My family and basketball players."
Mike Rodriguez, Lake of the Four Seasons | "I like the people of Porter County. Everybody is nice and cordial. My family helped me get to where I am now. They got me through school and kept me working."
Dostana Jasnic, Crown Point | "Being healthy and happy. If you're not happy, you're not living. I have many people around me that make me happy."

Mark Blank, Merrillville | "The salvation I have and that I know I'm going to heaven when I die."
Mario Garcia, Hammond | "My family and my parents. They're always supporting me and what I do. My parents are always there for me."
Shelly Lohr, Merrillville | "Less. I'm more money conscious, and I'm managing my money better."
Lucy King, Munster | "I'm spending less due to the implementation of Obamacare."
Felicia Foster, Crown Point | "Probably more. I'm working two jobs, and I'm saving up. As you get older you spend more too."
Tyler Franklin, Portage | "Less. I just moved into a new apartment. It's the security deposit that has gotten me behind."
Adrian Bowser, Merrillville, | "Probably more because I can. It's been a better year for me. It's one of those things when it's been good for you."
Dan Burk, Hammond | "Less. I'm unemployed this year and have been unemployed for a long time. I can only spend and give so much."
Megan Bruce, Chesterton | "I don't think so. Privacy is a good thing. It could be helpful in giving the sense of security, but a lot of people would get away anyway."
Cindy Koehler, Schererville | "It's kind of iffy for me. I understand why they do it, but I personally wouldn't want to be spied on. If I knew that it's keeping me safe, then I guess I'd accept it."
Terry Zych, East Chicago | "We want to utilize every advantage that we possibly can. Bugging, wiretapping and drones, the more high-tech the better. We should utilize our technology to its fullest."
Vicki Ciena, Lake Station | "No. Why would it be OK to do it to them but not to us? I feel I'm being watched all the time, but I don't think about it or I'd never leave the house."
Enrique Rivera, Lansing | "No. We have no business in foreign countries. We have too many problems here. It's like being a terrorist or a snitch."
Sean O'Rourke, Portage | "No. I think we have enough situations here to focus on. We need more faith in God."
Loreena Rivera, Lansing | "No. I don't think it would be good. There's too many people, so I don't think they could respond quickly enough."
Micah Menrath, Portage | "It might. Instead of relying on themselves they would be included with others."
Joseph Doman, Chesterton | "I'm not sure about unity, but it could have its benefits. If it saves money and makes the center more effective that would be good. We'll have to wait and see."
Helen Hameetman, Dyer | "I think it's too big of an area for one call center. I do believe it would bring the communities together."
Tiffany Mogan, Cedar Lake | "I think it's more complicated. I think it's OK the way it is now. I don't like the way they scrutinize your calls anyway."
Barbara Mably, Hobart | "No. Lake County is fighting about everything. The politicans couldn't find anything that would bring them together."
Anthony Jones, Portage | "Iraq. The road clearance, because you never know what was at the other end."
Nichole Wells, Hobart | "When my aunt hit a deer. I was asleep in the car when she saw a deer coming at us she screamed, 'Oh my God!' I woke up and witnessed us hitting the deer."
Lois Buuck, Highland | "One time we were visiting our daugther and we slid on ice and rolled the van but we were OK. My husband had double knee and shoulder surgey, and while at home he fell down the stairs, but again he was OK."
Nico Ramos, Porter | "When I was younger, my brother hid in the closet with a mask on while holding a knife. I was taking a shower, so when I got out he came out of the closet at me."
Alexis Pena, Portage | "When I went to old man Dewy's house last year. While we were inside, it was really dark, and everyone turned their flashlights off. We were told that we would hear a dog barking and we did, and that really scared me."
Lorenzo Wells, Portage | "When I went to Six Flags, I was 10 at the time, I locked onto a ride but it seemed loose. I thought I was going to fall out. I never went on that ride again."
Jackie Natale, Peotone | "Food, shelter and chemical-free and non-GMO foods. Could I please have something that God made? Don't play with the groceries."
Anthony Campana, Hobart | "It doesn't take a lot. Maybe a meal now and then. A roof overhead is pretty nice."
Tony Lenzo, Hammond | "Having the last name 'Bush' and a connection to the Illuminati."
Nick Resunenko, Hammond | "Money. To be paid more than mimimun wage is right now. Health care is just as important as money for food and clothes."
Tina Hartman, Crown Point | "Shelter, food and having a home as well as a job and my family."
Kim Morris, Lansing | "Good health, money and family."
Arthur Fykes, Hazel Crest | "I enjoy the weather because it's cooler and the leaves turning different colors and the sun rises and sets in a different position. I also enjoy driving through the forest preserves."
Jamaal Watson, Crown Point | "I get out to an apple orchard and get ready for Halloween."
