Today:  Dianne Durham, the first African-American senior national gymnastics champion, is being remembered in a "celebration of life" next week in Gary.  "Off Mic" guest host Michael Gonzalez spoke with Dianne's husband Tom Drahozal about her legacy and how she paved the way for many of the superstar athletes that we know of today. "Post-Tribune" reporter Alex Kukulka is on "Reporters' Roundtable" this week to review the stories she put out in print and online, as is "Times" business reporter Joseph Pete. He talked about the revised plan that NIPSCO has for the utility's future, including an earlier-than-announced retiring of the Michigan City coal-fired power plant.  And Indiana Public Broadcasting's Dylan Peers McCoy has a report on the Gary Community Schools' financial situation.
