Today:  We continue our conversations with members of the northwest Indiana legislative delegation with state Representative Carolyn Jackson (D)(1)  -- who represents Hammond and Whiting.  She is one of the  lawmakers elected in the November 2018 election, filling the seat held by long-time Representative Linda Lawson.  She gives us her assessment of her first General Assembly session.  Kim Ferraro of the Hoosier Environmental Council talks about the 60-day notice of lawsuit issued to the owners of a proposed dairy farm in Newton County.  And "Dunes Action" co-founder Jim Sweeney is with us by phone to talk about resumption of renovation of the historic pavilion at the Indinaa Dunes State Park -- and the organization's concerns about how the work is being done by Pavilion Partners LLC.
