I drive buy their home every week-glad to see the lights are on and they are still there! I've watched everything vanish along hwy. 12 in the last 40 years-and for what! As a lifelong northern indiana resident I have always loved the dunes but I also loved Tremont, Waverly Rd. and parts of Porter that are forever gone. Hey environmentalists-try watching parts of your hometown disappear and see how you like it! I will pray that the Bagnalls stay as long as they like.

I agree with "guitarman" but it looks like the Bagnalls have given up and moved out, clearing the way for eventual demolition of their fine home, overlooking Lake Michigan. I hope they have found a place even half as nice as what they've left.

To guitarman--we have watched acres and acres of pristine dunes and forest give way to ugly smoke belching steel mills--who knows how much cancer those things are giving us. Gary is also a joke. Half the city is boarded up. As far as I am concerned, the NPS could buy have of Gary, level it, and include that in the park--restore it back to nature. I think they are doing some of that with one neighborhood in Gary. From what I hear, those homes flood out all of the time anyway. Those house should not have been built there in the first place.
