Today:  A conversation with central Indiana attorney and former Dan Coats aide Mark Hurt, who is -- for now -- the only Republican running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Joe Donnelly.  Hurt announced his candidacy last week. He stopped by northwest Indiana today.  I talked with him one-on-one and then sat in on a question-and-answer session that Hurt held with Marc Chase, Bill Dolan and Doug Ross of The Times of Northwest Indiana.  

Valparaiso University associate professor law Faisal Kutty sent in an "op-ed" piece to the Toronto Star last week about how those who hate Islam have been emboldened by recent rhetoric.  Professor Kutty is also an adjunct professor of law at York University in Canada. I talked with him about the newspaper article.

"Counter Point with Garrard McClendon" focuses this week on cyberbullying and if it is a "real crime."  We bring you the conversation that airs on Friday night on Lakeshore Public Television, and you'll want to watch it.  And Steven Lattimore has a report on a new transgender policy issued by the Boy Scouts of America and reaction to it by the local LGBTQ community.
