"Fourteen years in the league and the worst we can say about you is that you made a lot of castor-oil faces and your helmet left funny marks and one time you laid into your "idiot kicker." Fourteen years and you didn't sext anything, wreck anything or deck anybody."

What an exceptional piece by Rick Reilly.

The Colts were never my team, but I’ve been around enough fans to know what an impact this man has had in Hoosierville. I’ve also found it really difficult to root for many professional athletes these days (Not you, Steve.); however, this man has never ceased to inspire.

Lou Gehrig was “The Iron Horse”, who helped carry the good ol’ Yankee boys through their heydays. You, Peyton, have been the blood, sweat, and soul pounded into the soles of each and every Colt for more than a decade, and (though the circumstances were entirely different) you took every stride with as much dignity as that classy Iron Horse — that kind of poise deserves a major league thank you.

Hey, you even opened a Northwest Indiana girl’s eyes to professional sports outside of Chicagoland. Reggie Miller couldn’t even to that.

Stimulus money brings solar energy jobs, Gov. Daniels to Portage

"… the company ultimately chose Portage over other sites because of the strong education system here, which helps to provide training and a strong employment base, along with its nearness to the port and railways."

Hoosier History 101



Reports of “sabotage” hit U.S. news wires June 8, 1951, after the largest plane disaster in peacetime history occurred in and around Richmond, Indiana.

Life reported, “Three pilots were killed; some of the planes, shredded to pieces, left only holes in the ground. How could it have happened to eight planes simultaneously? They had flown into a mild electrical storm. Could that be the answer? Or did the maintenance crews slip up? Or was it sabotage?”

There were 71 planes in the Air Force flight from Austin, Texas.

The Sandusky Register (then the Sandusky Register-Star) had a frightening report from a Mrs. Fred Musser:

"She thought she and her five children were caught in an enemy bombing raid. One plane crashed almost in their front yard. ‘I heard the planes zooming around, and then heard a noise that sounded like thunder — only a lot worse,’ Mrs. Musser said. ‘I ran outdoors and saw the first plane go down across the road from the Perfect Circle Plant and then suddenly, there was an explosion almost right over my head. I thought sure it was an air raid and that those planes were dropping bombs.’ Plane parts smashed four windows in the Musser house and tore several holes in the frame walls."
