Today:  On this "Reporters' Roundtable Thursday," "Times" reporters AnnMarie Hilton and Joseph Pete talk about the stories they put out in print and online, including AnnMarie's education-beat story of the opening of the new Hammond Central High School and Joseph's business-beat story on the lawsuit filed by the city of Gary against Akyumen.  Indiana Public Broadcasting workforce reporter Justin Hicks talks about his visits to the PepsiCo plant Teamsters picket line in Munster for his stories for IPB News, as the strike goes into its third week. And we find out more about next week's Lake County Fair from Fair Board secretary Arlene Marcinek. The County Fair begins Aug. 6th and runs through Aug. 15h in Crown Point.

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.
