Today:   Northwest Indiana financial advisor Greg Hammer joins us to talk about the 84th anniversary of the creation of the Social Security system -- its place in Americans' financial stability over the years -- and how we all can better keep track of and use our benefits, at the right time, to get maximum use of the money we've accumulated over our working lives.   We also find out about health food options at some Indiana fairs and festivals from Side Effects Public Media's Isaiah Seibert and Meghan Buell of northern Indiana-based TREES, Inc. talks about the work done by an Indiana University researcher into the public view of transgender people.  Megan Sikes' comments about the 2019 Lake Area United Way's "Unity In Our Community" week wrap up our interviews today.
