Today:   On this "Reporters Roundtable Thursday," we asked "Chicago Tribune" and "Post-Tribune" reporter Michael Hawthorne to talk about his story this week on how an industrial neighbor to homes in Whiting has reportedly contaminated the air, an area already loaded with contaminated soils.  Giles Bruce of the "Times" also joins us, along with "Post-Tribune" reporter Greg Tejeda, to talk about their stories in print and online.  And Lakeshore Public Radio's Sharon Jackson has a conversation with Indiana Youth Institute executive Tami Silverman on the high opioid and nicotine use in Indiana, as mentioned in recent reports.
