10/20: Just wanted to express my appreciation to the state troopers pulling over speeders on 1050 North in Chesterton today. The speeding has been out of control. Coffee Creek Resident, Chesterton

10/3: Greek's Pizza, you will be missed!! Seth, Chesterton

9/14: Shame on some Chesterton drivers who stop at the stop sign, then move right along without waving on the kids. I've seen countless cars go by, one after another, while kids stand at Porter and 5th waiting to cross the street. Frustrated Parent, Chesterton
