  • An abandoned Gary school could soon be replaced with a trucking business, following zoning approval from the city council Tuesday. The council voted eight-to-one to establish a planned unit development district at the former Edison School at 5400 West 5th Avenue. That will allow Djuric Trucking to move its facility from Hammond.
  • A two-decade effort to rename a Gary street in honor of Malcolm X remains stuck in a bureaucratic stalemate. According to a discussion during Wednesday's city council meeting, organizers got the necessary signatures to rename Georgia and Virginia streets to Malcolm X Boulevard and got unanimous approval from the city's plan commission. But organizer Kwabena Rasuli said more than two years later, the street still hasn't been renamed.
