The Hammond docks are Divorce brings ups and downs forMcHic In 1925, Isabel McHie eccentric wife of Times founder Sidmond McHie, officially parted from Uncle Sid. Depleted of adrenaline and raw at his nerve endings, he had sought and gotten a legal separation on grounds of cruel and inhuman treatment. Rising in wrath, Isabel made him pay for it. Gaining a New York divorce, she took Uncle Sid for just about everything: the five-story Fifth Avenue mansion, his Rolls Royce, the king's ransom in jewels he had bought her and $30,000 a year for the rest of her life $1,000 a month, plus $8,000 dollars a year from stick income and $10,000 a year additional income from his New York property. She also gained from Uncle Sid a waiver of his rights under a 1919 signed agreement by which she and her husband pledged to leave to the other his or her complete estates.
The waiver, however, contained an important provision, one that would become important in the future. It required that Isabel cease "annoying, molesting and bedeviling" Uncle Sid. Isabel left Uncle Sid with only his Midwest properties, including the Lake County Times, and his Paris villa, causing him to give up his brokerage business, except for a bucket shop in Hammond. Isabel thereby effectively forced Uncle Sid back to Hammond, where he lived on the fifth floor of the Hammond Building he had previously built (1903) and conducted a "press club" there. The building also contained the new Lake County Times, whose centennial we are cele- 1,1 I III.

That arrangement suited Isabel fine, as long as times were good, but when the market crashed in 1929, so did Uncle Sid.
During the subsequent bank holiday, Isabel's economic wellspring dried up almost completely, as Uncle Sid's investment in the Hammond National Bank was wiped out, as was his $50,000 investment in the Indiana Harbor National Bank. Although Isabel thought it justice that Uncle Sid incurred a contingent liability for both banks, she found little joy in the fact that Uncle Sid could no longer make monstrous monthly payments to her. Furious all over again, Isabel began firing off telegrams to her estranged husband and to anyone she could think of. By actual count, she sent more than 100 of them. She called Uncle Sid names that island Greeks reserve for their gods, the most flattering being liar.
She taunted him: "You're too old to know anything about the waitress at your club." She accused him of improper conduct with a female heir: "It will make a delightful scandal." She even wired McHie's bank, chiding its officer "Very strange to me that a reputable bank would continue to be the trustee of a notorious swindler."
