SOUTH BEND — If you devote as substantially time as I put in in the block exactly where the previous South Bend Tribune constructing is positioned, it really is risk-free to say you can feel form of possessive.

I spent a large amount of time at Colfax Avenue and Lafayette Boulevard. Amassed a lot more than my share of parking tickets and acquired more than my share of facet eye from my spouse about that. Lots of reminiscences. Most of them fantastic.

The South Bend Tribune moved out of that constructing in the tumble of 2019 and for a extended time I tried out to stay away from driving down that block. It is really nonetheless challenging for me not to experience some variety of way when driving down Lafayette and passing that South Bend Tribune sign.

Our previous setting up has a big footprint and for a when the only other small business on Lafayette was the household furniture keep on the second ground of 215 N. Lafayette Blvd., which is across the street from the push setting up on the corner of Lafayette and LaSalle Avenue.
