It’s Christmastime in La Porte County, and nowhere is that more evident than at the La Porte High School Winter Choral Concert. Music and Christmas spirit filled the air as the students filed into the auditorium holding candles and singing traditional hymns and carols dating back centuries. Each of LPHS’s five choirs and choruses were involved in this event, which happens to mark the very last choir concert LPHS will ever hold in its old auditorium. The auditorium is slated to be torn down and replaced in the next two weeks.

We’ve all heard our friends belt out a ballad of “Hot Blooded” in the bar on a Saturday night while the rest of the bar usually joins in on the chorus. And anytime “Cold as Ice” comes on the radio, you know you just can’t change the station. We recognize so many of these songs because they’ve permeated our culture so deeply over the last 40 years. Foreigner has 22 hit songs on Billboard’s Top 40, 9 of which were Top 10 hits. A claim that only a select few bands can also attest to.

When visitors walk through Amhurst Asylum, they see dilapidated padded cells crawling with demented inhabitants, and dangling corpses shrouded in spider webs. Shrieks and cackles echo in the darkness while wild eyes leer through boarded walls. Finally, the smell of gasoline, accompanied by the roar of a chainsaw, greet them as their nightmarish journey comes to an end.
