Today:   Indiana University Northwest history professor emeritus James Lane joins us in the studio to talk about the book he's co-authored with Ronald Cohen: "Gary -- A Pictorial History," now in its third edition.  Professor Lane says the book is now up-to-date, including events in the Steel City into the 21st Century.   We also talk with Indiana state Senator Mike Bohacek (R-Michiana Shores) about the bill he's co-authoring to address "bias" in more comprehensive terms than stated in current Indiana law. He hesitates to call it a "hate crimes bill," because he says it's much more than that. Senate Bill 12 will be up for review in the 2019 General Assembly session.
