BOB HEISSE: Help us honor best in NWI business

One of the signature business events each year is The Times’ Northwest Indiana Business & Industry Hall of Fame luncheon. Save the date: Tuesday, May 1. Gov. Eric Holcomb is scheduled to give the keynote address at Avalon Manor in Hobart. With these plans in place, it’s time to start the nomination process that will run through January. We welcome your contributions to help us build a diverse field of nominees from Lake, Porter and LaPorte counties for our panel of judges. This is the 11th year for the Business & Industry Hall of Fame, and we’ve inducted nearly 50 people and enterprises since the initial event. In recent years we’ve added two categories. We now recognize an enterprise of the year, with Urschel Laboratories Inc. and Fair Oaks Farms honored so far. We’ve also expanded the nomination process to remove the restriction of recognizing distinction only from achievements in Northwest Indiana. This expansion led to Morningstar Founder and Executive Chairman Joseph Mansueto joining the 2017 inductees. Moving forward, we expect to name one member per year who has made his or her mark outside the Region. Otherwise, we look for Hall of Famers who have made significant contributions to business and industry in Northwest Indiana. Last year’s inductees included Craig Dwight, chairman and CEO of Horizon Bank; Robert E. Johnson III, Cimcor founder and president; and Karen Maravilla, It's Just Seredipity owner, and Raymundo Garcia, longtime El Taco Real manager. Don Babcock, NIPSCO director of economic development, was honored as Partner in Progress. Hope you can join us May 1. Please visit this month to nominate. Tickets can be purchased at or by calling Debbie Reilly at 219-933-3329. Thanks for reading us. Please contact me with any questions about The Times or our many publications. Continue Reading

Learn about anchors, visiting the show, how to contact us and more

NBC News pioneered the morning news program when it launched TODAY in 1952 with Dave Garroway as host. The live broadcast provides the latest in domestic and international news, weather reports, and interviews with newsmakers from the worlds of politics, business, media, entertainment and sports. After more than 48 years of the standard two-hour format, the third hour of TODAY was launched in October of 2000, followed by the fourth hour in September 2007, making TODAY the only four-hour national morning show broadcast. In June 1994, TODAY moved from its longtime home at New York’s 30 Rockefeller Plaza to a stunning new site next door: NBC News’ glass-walled, ground-floor production facility at the corner of 49th Street and Rockefeller Plaza. The facility brings to mind the TODAY of the early 1950s, which also had its studio windows facing the streets of New York City. The three-story, 18,000-square-foot home of TODAY now attracts thousands of visitors each year to peer into its windows and become part of TODAY’s broadcast. Since the program’s premiere broadcast on January 14, 1952, TODAY’s hallmark has been its ability to revise an entire edition to bring viewers breaking news as it happens. TODAY delivered immediate coverage of such news events as the devastating earthquake in Haiti, Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath, the tsunami that wreaked havoc in a dozen Asian nations, and the September 11 terrorist attacks. Don Nash is the executive producer of TODAY. Megyn Kelly TODAY is a new show within the TODAY brand. Beginning September 25, 2017, the show will air in most markets at 9:00 a.m., directly following the original 7-9 a.m. hours of TODAY. With strong, character-driven stories, Megyn Kelly TODAY is meant to move you — and move you into your Continue Reading

Join us for Arizona Storytellers Project: New Veterans’ Narratives 11/27

Our nation is home to 18.5 million living military veterans, 1.6 million of whom are women.This month, the Arizona Storytellers Project is honoring veterans by inviting them and their friends, family and community members to a special night of live storytelling from veterans of the most recent era of war. Six young veterans will take the stage 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 27, at Crescent Ballroom in downtown Phoenix to share true, first-person stories about their lives before, during and after their military service.Theirs are stories of identity, victory and hardship, of finding a sense of leadership and of losing everything. Above all, they are honest, reflective looks at how military service can change lives.Of the 18.5 million veterans in U.S. in 2016, 7.1 million served between the Gulf War in August 1990 to present, according to U.S. Census data. A total of 1.6 million are younger than 35.Among that youngest set of veterans is Stephanie Roberts, 31, who will share a story about a life-changing experience that happened while she served as an air-traffic controller in Taji, Iraq. She said learning to share her story has "become a little bit of my peace."I want other people to realize they can talk about what they went through before falling all the way down to the bottom like I did, and that there there are resources out there, especially for women," Roberts said.Corey Harris, 42, is a two-time Iraq War veteran who will also tell a story. He said that although developing his story for the stage has been difficult and even painful, he thinks it's important."I think it’s incumbent on every American to understand war and understand the people that we’re sending in to fight those battles because, as soldiers, we’re always going to do what we’re told to do, and it’s up to our citizens to decide what’s a good war and what’s not, and to know what the cost of that war is," Continue Reading

Peter Kassig’s mom pleads for ISIS not to behead her son: ‘Please tell us what more we can do’

The mother of an American aid worker held hostage by ISIS made another plea to the jihadists Thursday — asking what she and her husband can do to save their 26-year-old son's life. Paula Kassig, of Indianapolis, tried to reach the militants who have been spreading bloodshed and terror throughout Iraq and Syria on Twitter. "We have tried to contact you directly to plea for the life of our only son, Abdul Rahman (AHB'-duhl RAHK'-muhn) Kassig, and have not received any response," she tweeted. "Please tell us what more we can do so that Abdul Rahman may continue to serve and live his life in accordance with the teachings of Islam." Abdul-Rahman Kassig, formerly known as Peter Kassig, was captured on Oct. 1, 2013, while helping victims of the Syrian Civil War. The young man's friends say he had researched the region and was aware of the dangers before taking off. He decided that the amount of good he could do for refugees fleeing the violence outweighed the risk, they said. A former ISIS hostage said that Kassig voluntarily converted to Islam in the months after he was abducted. On Oct. 3, ISIS released a video threatening to behead Kassig next if the U.S. military continued its campaign of airstrikes. Less than a week later, Paula Kassig turned to Twitter in her first attempt to get in touch with the Islamic State. "I am an old woman, and Abdul Rahman is my only child. My husband and I are on our own, with no help from the government," she wrote. "We would like to talk to you. How can we reach you?" She sent another tweet to ISIS on Oct. 14 saying that she and her husband are "humble people committed to serving others." Many have noted the jihadist group's exceptional ability to use social media sites such as Twitter to spread its hateful propaganda. Even President Obama said, in an interview with "Meet the Press," they are "really good on social Continue Reading
