  • MERRILLVILLE – Political campaigns come and go, but one thing has stayed the same over nearly a decade in Northwest Indiana. Yes, Virginia, can you say Cline Avenue Bridge? And, rightly so, the local Democrats continue to turn the bridge to their political advantage. The bridge was a major link between the Chicago Skyway and Northwest Indiana,  particularly the casinos and area steel mills and other industries. The state closed the elevated bridge in 2009, citing structural deficiencies. Although former Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels said the structure would be rebuilt by the state, he quickly washed his hands of the issue. The state then contracted with a private firm to rebuild the structure, although not to its original size. United Bridge Partners has started work on an operations and maintenance building in East Chicago. Work on the bridge, however, hasn’t started and it likely won’t be completed until 2019.

  • Rest in Peace Gregg Allman
    My sons and I had a long time saying: "And on the Seventh Day, God created the Allman Brothers." It amazed me that my sons, some 35 years younger than I, gravitated to some of my most beloved rock n' roll and that included the Allman Brothers. Founder Gregg Allman passed away on Saturday at age 69. The New York Times observed that Gregg Allman was the "principal architects of a taut, improvisatory fusion of blues, jazz, country and rock that — streamlined by inheritors like Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Marshall Tucker Band — became the Southern rock of the 1970s." I remember the Allman Brothers playing the night before the 1979 Indianapolis 500 at Market Square Arena (Dickie Betts got mad during the show, slammed the mic on the stage and stormed off). My simple eulogy is that Gregg Allman and his landmark band consistently stirred my soul. Rest In Peace. - Brian A. Howey, publisher
