We're now into September, and that brings us the end over summer and the influx of fall sports. This week we go over a couple remarkable stories from our schools, a football game, and a moving patriotic ceremony.
Our own Anna Hanson took a trip to Valparaiso's Zao Island to see all they have to offer! From mini-golf to go karts, they've got everything fun for kids of all ages.
We're slowly edging out of summer and back into fall - but that doesn't mean the region didn't slow down one bit. This week our top stories come from inspirational sportsmanship, a 100 mile bike ride, the start of those Friday night lights, and bacon.
On this episode of the Hanson Hub host Anna Hanson talks to LIFE contributing editor Kyle Hovanec about something he's very passionate about - movies. Every month he shares the role of movie reviewer to let Northwest Indiana know what's good and bad about the month's biggest movie that plays at the Portage 16 IMAX theater.
