Today:   On this "Reporters' Roundtable Thunrday," we check in with Sarah Reese and Lauren Cross of the "Times," to talk about the stories they worked and posted online and in print this week.  They include updates on where toxic contamination dredged from the Grand Calumet River and Indiana Harbor Ship Canal is to be disposed of, the "case of the dead swans" found in a Hammond lake, and if the city of Gary is still considering about asking for state permission to build its own construction-demolition waste landfill.

We also find out the best Christmas movies to watch this year and learn more about the soon-to-be dissolved Trump Foundation.

For those stories, we turn to Lakeshore Public Radio's Sharon Jackson and Dee Dotson.  And Kristen Dreyer Kramer tells us about a good holiday book to read... about a Christmas wedding.

Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
