In this Thursday, Aug. 15, 2019 photo, a dead catfish floats along the bank of the Burns Ditch near the Portage Marina in Portage, Indiana. Some beaches along northwestern Indiana’s Lake Michigan shoreline are closed after authorities say a chemical spill in a tributary caused a fish kill.

On this Reporter’s Roundtable Friday we have a conversation with “Post Tribune” education and health reporter Meredith Colias-Pete about the stories she’s put out both online and print. Meredith shared the details about a plea agreement reached that could help a former Merrillville daycare operator avoid a felony conviction. She also goes into great detail about the a federal judge approving an already-reached deal Cleveland-Cliffs to pay $3 million and upgrade equipment over a 2019 chemical spill that killed 3,000 fish.
