Today: Another in the Purdue University Northwest virtual lecture-discussion series "Race, Racism and Anti-Racism" was held on World Cancer Day and the topic is health equity and communities of color. We talked with moderator Professor Karen Bishop-Morris and two participants in the conversation, Tranece Artis and Shari McKinley, ahead of the event. We also have a conversation from "Indiana Lawmakers" program host Jon Schwantes and his guests about a bill in the General Assembly that focuses on law enforcement reform. And two Indiana Landmarks preservation projects in Gary are getting financial support from the funds set up years ago by the man who became the first Black chemist with Eli Lilly and Company. We'll tell you more about them.
GARY - The Gary Common Council is considering changes to its approval process of day care businesses in the city.
The "Times" reports there has been a steady stream of applications being submitted to the Common Council for in-home day cares. According to the latest data available, there are already 55 registered in the city, as of last fall.
Councilwoman Tai Adkins, Democrat from the 4th district, said she noticed day care applications coming before the council nearly every month that they meet.
