- Today's story in the Post-Tribune showcases the debate. Our congressman got us $4 million plus to improve county road 100 south ... the road that becomes 109th street and goes all the way west to the new I-65 interchange. Bob Harper, our county's "against everything" comissioner, says he'd rather not have the money. Or maybe he'd rather use it to extend 149 thru the county. Or maybe he'd rather have it used to extend Willowcreek from Portage to S.R. 130. Or maybe ....
- Mitch Daniels has been travelling around the state suggeting the Illiana Expressway should start in three years and be a toll road. What does this have to do with the above debate? Well, some have suggested that the Illiana is really going to happen much further out and that 100 South will be the east-west connector until then. Whether Mr. Harper wants the road or not, the traffic will go there.
Some places to go to do some research and bring back some ideas:
www.nwitimes.com try the bulletin board though it really isnt nearly as good as it used to be
Northwest Indiana site bulletin board, again not as good as the old board on the Times site
Send us your thoughts and ideas. I'll post and thread those that are worthy of featuring.

Wow. In the age of the internet that seems a bit jumpy!
I hope a new bulletin board will take its place soon, if you happen across it let me know.

Well one professor is researching just that re-branding option.
Should we be South Shore?
Should we be Chicago South Shore?
Should we be Northlake Indiana?
