Today on Off Mic we get the latest on the pandemic in Northwest Indiana with rising COVID-19 rates and a call for the state to set up a free testing site. We hear from one local official on his town’s plans to host a parade this weekend; and we pay tribute to our nation’s birthday with a couple of renditions of our nation's’ national anthem, including the official Spanish-language version of the Star-Spangled Banner as commissioned by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1945. Then we talk to Times of Northwest Indiana reporter Joseph S. Pete about his book "Lost Hammond, Indiana."

All this on Off Mic.
