Today:   "Northwest Indiana Gazette" editor and publisher Ken Davidson joins us to talk about the issues surrounding the School City of Hammond's multi-million dollar improvement projects which includes a new high school -- projects which he says aren't being publicly discussed by the School Board.  He has put out posts on his website about a strategic planning committee and bids approved on "consent agenda."
