Today:   Ed Feigenbaum, the creator and editor of "Indiana Gaming Insight" newsletter published by Hannah News Service, talks about the latest gaming news in the Hoosier State, which happens to involve news from the Illinois legislature that could bring a casino license to the Chicago area.  That could have a big effect on northwest Indiana's casinos.  Indiana Public Broadcasting's Jeanne Lindsay has a report on the unpredictable structure of public school funding that is leading school districts to ask their patrons for tax hikes.  She begins her report in the Lake Forest School Corp. in Lake County. And we bring back our summer 2017 conversation about Lake Michigan drownings with Dave Benjamin with the Great Lakes Surf Rescue Project.
