1. Kinda sad that this means the South Shore Air Show is going to be cancelled. I have always enjoyed being able to watch from a deserted strip of beach aways from the crowds. I have no interest in the crowds and madness of the Chicago Air Show.

  2. You people with negative comments are absolutely brutal and you folks really need to get a life. This story is about two guys who have acheived tremendous success in their professional lives coming home and trying to help out local students and their school. I don't think the administration at PUC would have entered into this venture unless there was significant upside for the students. With state and federal funding drying up in the foreseeable future, I believe public-private partnerships of this nature are going to become more common.

  3. Why is Dave's Tree Service listed as a sponsor of this event? They should have been banned from doing business with the city because the owner pleaded guilty to bribing Councilman Al Salinas in exchange for tree cutting work.

  4. Let's hope the city of Hammond does not offer any tax incentives or TIF district benefits if they allow Walmart to develop at the Cabela's location. I fail to see how this is a "win" for the city when they already have the Walmart on 165th Street. Allowing Walmart to move creates a much bigger problem for the city because it is highly unlikely that any other retailer will be interested in the Walmart building. Furthermore, it diminishes the viability of re-developing Woodmar shopping center and surrounding areas since you have drawn all of the Walmart shoppers away from this shopping district. The Cabela's site should be targeted for highway oriented commercial development such as hotels and restaurants that bring money in from outside the community.
