1. Really hoping Gerry gets reelected. He's done an excellent job in his post as commissioner. I've known him for years, a very honest man with great integrity and initiative.

  2. Schererville, Dyer, and St. John still have the three lowest tax rates in Lake County even after the referendum. And as for a new high school, that would have been fine and good, but it still would've avoided the inevitable. Lake Central needs remodeling direly. I was a student at LC for the last four years and cannot tell you how happy I was to hear that this referendum passed. The school is in the worst shape possible. If there would have been a new high school, it would've cost at least 100 million to build, and LC would have needed at least 70 million because of its horrible condition. The LCHS building has barely been renovated since it opened 1967.

  3. Sorry, I disagree. I went to LC for four years and in every way this needed to be done. The current school is an embarrassment to the Tri-Town community. I remember traveling to other high schools in the region for athletic events and seeing their state-of-the-art academic and athletic facilities, which put LC to shame. This referendum had to get done one way or another otherwise LC was going to continue to be a laughing stock. The only athletic complex that will be done before majority of the academic buildings is the football field and track. The old track and current football field are hazardous not only to the Lake Central student-athletes, but to opposing student-athletes. Otherwise, academic buildings are the primary focus.
