Today:  We bring back our conversation with David Wright, the planning director for Gary Public Transportation Corp. about the recent service changes and what will be "On the Table" at the next Legacy Foundation-sponmsored discussion on Monday at Gary Public Library.  Ann Massie of the Northwest Indiana Food Council tells about the last series of "Farm Hop" farm tours around the Region, and Professor Tim Tomasik has details of this year's Valparaiso University Film Festival.  Lakeshore Public Radio's Sharon Jackson also talks with  Allison Mack with Gas Buddy.com about the impact that recent attacks on Saudi crude oil facilities will have on what we here in northwest Indiana pay for gasoline.

And NPR's Yuki Noguchi has a report on how high technology helps deal with a doctor shortage -- especially in the psychiatry field -- at one Indiana healthcare group.
