Today:   It's Reporters' Roundtable Thursday.  We hear from Marc Chase of the "Times of Northwest Indiana' about a 20-page special section, coming this weekend, which takes a deep dive into details of 373 fatal traffic accidents that killed 404 people over the past five years in Lake, Porter and LaPorte Counties.   "Times" business reporter Joseph Pete brings us up-to-date on the United Steelworkers Union negotiations with major steelmakers U.S. Steel and ArcelorMittal.  And Greg Tejeda of the "Post-Tribune" has news from the city of Gary, including the recent public forum on the city's finances and City Councilwoman Ragen Hatcher's new house.
