#NWI: Grandmother and aunt of #Gary police officer slain

Grandmother and aunt of Gary police officer slain: "Lillie L. Miller, 79, was found dead at her home at 733 Tyler St. around 9 p.m., said Gary police Detective Cpl. Gabrielle King. Donessa Miller, 52, the victim's daughter, was rushed to the Methodist Hospitals Northlake Campus in Gary and pronounced dead at 9:34 p.m., according to the Lake County coroner's office.

Lillie Miller was the grandmother of Gary Police Patrolman Damon Bradshaw and Donessa Miller was his aunt, King said.

Police were dispatched to the Tyler Street home at 8:54 p.m. Friday after receiving a report of a person down, according to King, a department spokeswoman. Police found both women unresponsive in the home.

Detectives were interviewing a person of interest in the homicides at the police station Saturday night, King said.

The preliminary cause of death for both women was asphyxia due to compression, according to the coroner's office.

Dwight Taylor, president of Concerned Citizens Against Violence in Gary, said he and a few other people held a prayer vigil outside the victims' home at 4 p.m. Saturday. Taylor has led a number of anti-violence marches and prayer vigils in Gary.

He said when he heard about the deaths of the two women it made him sick to his stomach."

#Crown Point may pick up light tab #NWI

Crown Point may pick up light tab: "Mayor David Uran asked City Engineer Tris Miles at a recent Crown Point Board of Works meeting to get in touch with Merrillville about the streetlights on 93rd Avenue.

Merrillville is disconnecting every other light on 93rd Avenue and the town's other main thoroughfares to reduce its utility bill. Town Councilman Lance Huish said he also wants to disconnect all of the decorative streetlights on 93rd Avenue.

Uran said he understood Merrillville was looking for ways to save money, but residents along that street had contacted City Councilman Andrew Kyres with concerns about safety.

Uran said because the only residents along the street were on the Crown Point side, he was open to Miles finding out from Merrillville how much it would cost to keep the lights on.

Some Merrillville town councilmen said they have no problems if Crown Point pays for lights on 93rd Avenue."

#Porter #NWI: New Porter hospital could attract development

New Porter hospital could attract development: "As president of the Commercial In-Sites real estate brokerage firm and owner of 14 acres of vacant land along Ind. 49 in Chesterton, he was convinced the $210 million state-of-the art hospital and related medical office building would be a big incentive for national restaurant chains, hotels and retailers to consider opening up shop nearby in Porter County.

These are the types of investments that occur regardless of the shape of the economy, Lasser said.

Porter County Plan Commission Director Bob Thompson said his office has received a few calls from landowners near the hospital site seeking information about allowable uses for their property.

Most of the unincorporated land north of U.S. 30 along Ind. 49 is currently zoned for residential use, but owners could petition for changes, he said. No one has yet submitted any plans for developments piggybacking on the planned hospital, a two-year project expected to break ground this spring.
Chesterton officials are including a discussion on how the town can factor into the new hospital as part of their efforts to update the community's comprehensive plan, said Town Manager Bernie Doyle.

The community has two prime locations for development on either side of Ind. 49, just south of the Indiana Toll Road, he said.

Valparaiso has not received any inquiries from developers as a result of the Porter hospital project, said city Planning Director Craig Phillips
