There isn't just good coffee, there's good coffee that comes with the utmost care and dedication. Blackbird Cafe in Valparaiso has been a community favorite for over seven years, and one big contributing factor to their success is their wide range of good, delicious coffee. We recently sat down with Blackbird's co-owner and their Chicago roaster to talk over their love for "single origin" coffee and why it's essential to care about the product.

Valparaiso Community Schools Work Together to Present 'This is Our Story'


Video Thumbnail Image

This is Our Story is a long time tradition in the Valparaiso community. For decades it's brought together bands, choirs, and orchestras from every school in the city to perform holiday music over two nights. 2015's TIOS is right around the corner, so we decided to get the low-down on this year's events.

From the elementary all the way up to the high school, kids of all ages work hard and diligently to prepare for their moment in the high school gym - and their teachers are proud to tell you just that.

To see the pictures from both nights of TIOS, click here and here to view the hundreds of fantastic shots.

We recently talked to the SSCVA CEO about the exhibit, why people are so attached to the movie, and why he loves putting the windows up each year.
