For fellow Gary native CJ Williams, being a Michael Jackson tribute artist is not about mimicking the spins and splits. It's about paying homage to the King of Pop.  Williams, who took third place at a recent talent contest in Gary coinciding with the anniversary of Jackson's birthday, has spent 12 years as an impersonator.

Hood lives with three dumped dogs in a dilapidated 1982 Chevrolet Rockwood recreational vehicle that’s traveled 81,000 miles and has an expired 2008 license plate on the back.  That RV, Hood’s home, may have finally found a permanent parking space thanks to kindness bestowed upon him by strangers , including a local accountant, a grocery store owner and a property owner and several county officials who asked to go unnamed who were intent on making sure the man can live his simple life without fear of being run off.
