  1. Porter County residence be advised, the liberals that have destroyed IL. have moved to Indiana and like locust, consumed Lake County, and are now taking over Porter County. These people with thier tax and spend attitude dont want to pay taxes themselves, so they move to a low tax area and bring thier stupid ideas with them. Then after they voted up the taxes, they move on.
    Its time to move to Texas, and Im closing the door behind me.

  2. I drive through Gary all the time since I work at the mill. Broadway and 5th is not bad. The area is well lit and the Genesis Center is easily accessible from the tollroad.
    As for Michael Essany, I've never seen his show but I've heard that is was really good. There must be something to it because he's able to get big names. I hope for Michael, that his show will get noticed by larger networks and he can take it as far as he wants to go with it.

  3. C'mon people, grab a mit and get in the big game. This is Obamas new world order. Let's give him four more years so he can complete the transformation. FORWARD!

  4. Perhaps regionaire has never heard of a Right Of Way. This is the area of a persons property that the utility company runs the power lines through. The utility companies have access to these areas any time they want and don't require permission. They are responsible for their equipment on this property. In other words, you pay the taxes and upkeep the grounds but basically they have the say on what you can or cannot use this area for. Yup. We people with trees are getting a free ride.
    Also, I don't believe the utility companies want average joe citizen with chainsaws and extension saws messing around three phase utility lines that carry up to 765000 volts. I don't think regionaire has ever seen what happens to flesh when it encounters that much juice. Let's not even take into account how much our bills will go up when some swift talking lawyer sues when some jerk climbs his tree for utility line upkeep then falls into the power lines.
    Ya think people don't trim trees near power lines now? Guess again. You can find them on YouTube. Real smart.
