Indiana Landmarks

Today:  Todd Zeiger with Indiana Landmarks talks about the next "Logs to Lustrons Tour" at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, May 13th and 14th.  Homes representing more than a century of architecture, ranging from log cabins built by Swedish settlers to the houses from the Century of Progress at the 1930s Chicago World's Fair to Lustron-construction houses will be available for viewing, some not normally open to the public.  Some are also vacant landmarks in need of a new use.

Lakeshore Public Radio's Steven Lattimore takes us to a Region bakery making the pre-Lenten favorite: paczkis.

Indiana Public Broadcasting's Barbara Brosher is with families of illegal immigrants who must say goodbye to loved ones, as they are about to be flown out of the Gary-Chicago International Airport by the Department of Homeland Security. 

And we hear from three northwest Indiana educators who won Lilly Endowment teacher creativity fellowships. Each has an interesting story to tell, on what they'll do that will benefit their students.
