Ever wonder what makes Whiting successful? Mayor Joe Stahura lays out what makes Whiting wacky, whimsical, and a growing success in this episode of Life on the Streets of Northwest Indiana. “The idea is to go against the norm,” Mayor Stahura began, “We like to poke fun at our heritage. We have a lot of Polish and Slovakian heritage in Whiting. From there we add things like the mascot museum, which is a great fit for the Pierogi Fest characters. We have a lot of fun with it.” To read the full article click here http://www.nwindianalife.com/community/recreation/66168-life-on-the-streets-of-whiting-featuring-mayor-joe-stahura
Bishop Donald J. Hying of The Roman Catholic Diocese of Gary recently met with Ideas in Motion Media (IIMM) Founder Chris Mahlmann, in the Great News Studio for an NWI Great News Show interview. Topics and questions included working with the public to spread the faith and the state of a very changing church.
Community pride was the highlight of this week. Lots of great things happening from ribbon cuttings to award ceremonies, and of course Festival of the Lakes.
“Now, is it pronounced Ho-Bart or Ho-Bert?” asks Ideas in Motion Media founder, Chris Mahlmann to Hobart Mayor Brian Snedecor. The Mayor glares at Mahlmann through his tinted shades. “Its Ho-Bert. Normally when someone says Ho-Bart, we know they’re not from The Region,” Mayor Snedecor smiles. http://www.nwindianalife.com/community/government-community-resources/66050-life-on-the-streets-of-hobart-featuring-mayor-brian-snedecor
