need help![edit]

  • I would like some help on making this website look and feel right! The information already added is correct but the site doesn't look right. I've tried to make Munster, Indiana site look like the Griffith, Indiana site, but It didn't work... Please check out Griffith, Indiana and if someone knows how to make it similar that would help!!! Thanks! —Preceding unsigned comment added by [[User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]] ([[User talk:{{{1}}}|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/{{{1}}}|contribs]])
  • Also look at the Hammond page. I did most of it. Kalmia 07:07, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

Education[edit]

Not necessary or relevant to list various colleges that some MHS graduates have gone to in a general-purpose article on the Town of Munster. Also unsourced. Xenophon777 (talk) 19:06, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Edits of Nov 13, 2008[edit]

The Bailly information is of little relevance specifically to the history of the Town of Munster. The Stahlbohm information, while I believe it to be true, is unsourced, and out of place -- a non sequitur -- in the place where it had been inserted. The Wikilink on the second reference to the Little Caluemt River was removed pursuant to Wikipedia policy of using the links only onthe first occurrence of a name. If an editor can work the Stahlbohm information in in a more relevant way, with cites, it would presumably be a welcome addition. (I don't mean to be as critical as this must sound...)

"Undeveloped Lake"[edit]

I propose modification of the following sentence, which is in the body of the article at the moment: "The town's boundaries contain three small lakes, one of which, located within Centennial Park, is marshy and undeveloped." At one time the lake within Centennial Park was, indeed, marshy and undeveloped. (Those weren't my words.) However, the Park, including the lake within its boundaries, is now developed. Specifically, I propose eliminating the words "one of which, located within Centennial Park, is marshy and undeveloped." Any thoughts? Xenophon777 (talk) 14:11, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

  • Well, there's still one lake (Clayhole Lake) right on the edge of the new park that is definitely still marshy and undeveloped. -samaraphile —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.244.80.9 (talk) 05:18, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Affluent, Schmaffluent[edit]

Whether Munster is an "affluent" town or not, it's an instance of puffery, even if it were cited. What does "affluent" mean? More affluent than...? The word adds nothing to the article. It's best left out. Xenophonix (talk) 21:04, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Following recent edits concerning income, someone needs to check for cites to what the correct figures should be... what the previous editor had shown or what the most recent editor had put up. Xenophonix (talk) 23:56, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Company listings[edit]

Do all businesses in the town need to be (or have the right to be) listed, however local in focus or lacking in greater notability? Can I list my mechanic? This isn't the Yellow Pages. On notability and “What Wikipedia is Not” grounds, how about we remove all business listings which do not have their own Wikipedia articles? Xenophonix (talk) 23:53, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

Agreed. We definitely don't need to write every business that operates in Munster. There are a couple that should be kept which are important for Munster and the region as a whole, however; Three Floyds Brewing -- popular microbrew and nationally acclaimed, Times distribution center -- regional importance?, Community Hospital -- isn't it one of the 50 best hospitals in America? (saw the billboards advertising it everywhere; need citation for it), and PepsiCo? (all of these should be moved to a respective #Economy section which has yet to be written) --ddima.talk 17:20, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

Munster Community Hospital?[edit]

Does anyone think it would be good to mention something about Munster Community Hospital in the article? Seeing as it has been the only Indiana hospital to be named to America's 50 best Hospitals, for the past 4 years in a row. I just feel that Community Hospital can be seen as an important aspect of the town. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mortiz93 (talkcontribs) 21:03, 1 March 2012 (UTC)
