Today:   On this Reporters' Roundtable Thursday we bring in Giles Bruce of the "Times" of Northwest Indiana" to talk about the stories he put out in print and online -- including his account of a heroin addict who overdosed and could have died on a South Shore Line train, had it not been by quick work by first-responders that included the commuter railroad's police chief.  Giles has the latest on "Stephanie."

We also bring back our conversations with Carrie Napoleon of the historicLake County Courthouse Foundation and with Food Bank of Northwest Indiana executive director Steve Beekman.  September is Hunger Action Month at the Food Bank, and it gets underway Saturday morning with a special event at the Food Bank's new home in Merrillville.
