What's it like to be addicted to heroin and any other drug that would give you a similar escape?

Is skateboarding making a resurgence, or has it never went away?

If someone challenged you to place your right hand on your cell phone and vow to never text and drive again, would you stick to it?

If you had a terminal illness, would you want your partner to find true love, again, without you? Really?

And do you know what a leprechaun really is? Or why people kiss the Blarney stone?

It's that time of year again, the Super Bowl!  And to many Northwest Indiana Hoosiers it could be a big "who cares" because there's no Bears and no Colts in Super Bowl 51.  Who is in it are the New England Patriots, who have won four Super Bowls and all within recent history, in 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2015.  The Patriots will face the Atlanta Falcons, who have never won a Super Bowl.  But they did make it to the big game in 1999.  Does the game hold any interest people in the Region?  The Lakeshore finds out.
