This is a response to the letter by Mike Donelson, of Valparaiso ("Politicians are to uphold Constitution, not the Bible").
Good government in Lake County does not just happen. The voters of Lake County have their responsibility. We all want experienced, honest, qualified candidates with integrity to serve as our elected officials.
The March 31 letter, "Living in the Past," is how some social parasites justify their lack of adjusting to current society.
At long last the mile-high snow piles have melted away. In their wake, I find two things to reflect on.

Military volunteerism is one of the proudest traditions permeating region and state history since Indiana's infancy.
Kim Calabrese's March 19 letter referred to Judge Salvador Vasquez's rulings in two separate cases. I have known Judge Vasquez since he was a deputy prosecutor and I was a rookie detective. We came to know each other and became friends.
Is discretionary driving good driving? A number of large busy roads have a 35 mph speed limit. During rush hour traffic you're lucky to go 30 mph on these roads, let alone the time it takes to get through a traffic light with backed up traffic. When traffic is moving freely, the usual speed …
On behalf of the Indiana Manufacturers Association, I express our appreciation for Rep. Ed Soliday, R-Valparaiso, and his efforts during the 2014 Indiana General Assembly to successfully remove tax provisions harmful to Hoosier manufacturers organized as C corporations.
Looks like Jesse Jackson Jr. might be out of jail in time to dedicate the new Illiana Toll Road and Peotone airport.
Every morning during the Indiana legislative session, I cringe a bit when I open the paper.
Lake County government is now alone in declining to pay for ethics training for employees. That's shameful. Porter and LaPorte counties have already committed to joining the Shared Ethics Advisory Commission.
It was in the early 1980s that Indiana State University did a study about Lake County merging all towns and cities into a unigov form of government.
Recently, I performed in Valparaiso High School's Mocha Madness. We worked extremely hard on all of our games, learning the art of improvisation.
It is hard for me to express my outrage at your April 3 edition. The front page headline is about the Gary schools, also a large article with three pics about local golf course, and an article with big block head line about a school brawl.
In The Times and on WJOB, there have been cost estimates of anywhere between $250 million and $1 billion discussed for this (South Shore Line expansion) project. That is a staggering amount of money, considering the cost overruns usually associated with any government project.
More than 200 Lake Central High School students brought a sharp focus on suicides March 31 with their sit-in at the school, staged to protest school officials not speaking out to the student body about the suicide of a former student. A few days afterward, a second teen — this one a classmat…
Driving behind the hearse carrying my dad’s body to Angel Crest cemetery in Valparaiso, on cold Saturday in March, I watched with surprise as oncoming traffic pulled to the side of Campbell Street as the funeral procession passed them.
Who knew Lake County government could exercise a measure of fiscal restraint?
I was bored one night strolling down Pinterest, a visual social site where people collect, create and share ideas for their different projects and interests, and I ran across a quote: “It’s better to look back on life and say: ‘I can’t believe I did that.’ Than to look back and say: ‘I wish …
We the people would like to know just when our government and president is going to start looking out and doing for us and stop worrying so much of what has been going on in other countries.
I found your April 2 editorial cartoon extremely offensive. It showed President Barack Obama in front of a clock and implying that Obamacare (the Affordable Care Act) is not working. And I am proof Obamacare is working!
Was there ever a time where the media did not sensationalize things to sell papers? Or at least a time when they got the story correct?
Democracy is not a spectator sport. Maintaining and progressively advancing its fruits and rewards must be aggressively partisan if its legacy is to be passed on to future generations.
High school is stressful enough without the worry of choosing the right college as well as what major you are interested in.
Forget what you think you know about the utility of the marijuana plant. If we can all stop snickering for a moment and clear our heads of the visions of smoke-clouded VW vans or dorm rooms, the industrial hemp from marijuana plants is looking more and more like a viable cash crop for the Ho…
