Today:  Ball State University Center for Business and Economic Research Executive Director Michael Hicks joins us to talk about the Indiana and national job outlooks, as well as the latest about factories of not only Indiana-based firms -- but companies with only a presence in the Hoosier State.  Hicks also tells us about a new report from the CBER on the link between educational attainment and earnings.

"Great Lakes Today" reporter Rebecca Thiele tells us about potential changes of the U.S. lakefronts when more nuclear power plants shut down. 

And Frank Szczpaneski with "Blue Valpo" will give an update on efforts by civic as well as religious groups to assist East Chicago residents in having safe, pollution-free water supplies.  A coalition of regional groups delivered thousands of bottles of drinking water last week to residents in the most lead-arsenic-affected neighborhoods in East Chicago.
