October 8, 2009 (GARY, Ind.) --There's been a setback for supporters of a plan to create memorials to Michael Jackson in Gary, Indiana.The Gary Common Council has withdrawn two ordinances that would have created two city departments dedicated to memorializing the king of pop. One would work to establish a Michael Jackson Performing Arts Center; the other, a Jackson Family Museum.
Mayor Rudy Clay supports the idea. Council members did not give a reason for the votes.
