  1. Just a shout-out to my old stomping grounds of Chesterton High School….

    They will be competing for their 3rd straight Indiana Championship in Debate…Chesterton H.S.(located in a tiny NW Indiana town of about 13,000 pop.) has won the title for 28 of the past 33 years(1983-2015). Chesterton had a stretch of 14 out of 15 championship titles spanning from 1998-2012(including 9-straight championships from 1998-2006)….Compete and utter dominance.

    Eat at ‘The Port‘ !!

    Nice piece about Ted Karras in Hoosier Morning……My old man was an All-State tight end from Gary during the days just before WWII He had always told me that he had offers from Michigan and Purdue, but enlisted in Navy instead.

  2. Went to Snowdown in Durango last night. It’s this crazy annual festival that runs for days. Words don’t do it justice. The theme this year is the 1980’s. The best costume of the night that I saw was a guy going full Ditka. He stayed in character the entire time I was around him, answering in Ditka quotes while chomping on a cigar. Sounded just like him.

    He had the whole thing nailed. Had he been a few inches taller he could have convinced me he was the real deal.
