, march with the Northwest Indiana Green Party this Independence Day Weekend in Portage on July 2nd and Hobart on July 4th. Among the red, white and blue join us in a sea of green as we promote our environmental values and social justice.


Saturday, July 1st, Portage - a leisurely 1 mile walk down Central and Willowcreek. Parade begins at 10am, please arrive before 9:45. Lineup is in the field next to the Old Portage Mall, please enter at Central Ave and Roy Buckley Way. The NWI Green Party will be 49th.

Monday, July 4th, Hobart - a slightly more robust 1.5 miles through downtown Hobart. Parade begins at noon, we will gather starting around 11am. Lineup is at the Hobart Middle School along 8th Street west of Fleming Street. If you're coming by car, it would be best to avoid traffic by coming into Hobart from the south along 10th Street or up State Road 51 and parking in the 900 block of Lake Street and walking to the parade gathering area at the Middle School two blocks away.

Come join fellow NWI Greeners for a walk in Hobart's Fourth of July Parade. Hobart's parade is always a big deal, with thousands of people lining the parade route. NWIGP Chairman Joseph Conn's (and daughter Rachel's) annual post-parade party begins, as always, after the Hobart parade ends. RSVP for directions to Joe's house.

We may not have a car in the parades this year, so be prepared to walk and carry your own water with a canteen, etc. Wear a hat and sun screen.J
e at the festival and if there is enough folks to march in the parade.

Portage Approves Lead Casting Plant next to City Park

On Monday night the Portage Board of Zoning Appeals cleared the final major hurdle for a lead casting company from Illinois to build a three building facility adjacent to a City park, the Prairie-Duneland trail and two residential neighborhoods. Your Northwest Indiana Green Party organized and had 8 residents of Portage and unincorporated Porter county to speak against the development and the health risks associated with placing a lead casting plant in the area.

The owners had lawyered up and despite the pleas from the Green Party and from homeowners, a grandmother and parents, the Board of Zoning Appeals voted unanimously (all Democrat and Republican members, each appointed by our elected officials) to allow the use. So a company that makes lead fishing weights which will bring significant risks to children in the area, as well as adding to the lead being ingested by our waterfowl, causing declines in their birthrates and increased developmental problems.

The residents of Portage have suffered a major setback to our quality of life due to our elected officials and those they appoint to regulate and manage the processes in our city. They are more concerned with developing every square inch of Portage than the health and safety of our communities and our environment.
