Today:   On this Reporters' Roundtable, we have conversations with reporter Michael Hawthorne of the "Post-Tribune" and "Chicago Tribune," CNHI newspapers group Statehouse Bureau chief Scott Miley and Lakeshore Public Radio's Sharon Jackson.  We also bring back our conversation with Ed Feigenbaum, the creator and editor of the "Indiana Political Insight" and "Indiana Gaming Insight" newsletters in Indianapolis.  The newsletters are now owned by Hannah News Service.

Michael talks about his story on the latest lead contamination issue in northwest Indiana, Scott talks about his series of articles centering around Indiana township government -- and the need for reform and Sharon talks with Patrick McDonald,  editor and critic for the Hollywood/Chicago and Chicago Film Tour websites.
