Today:   We revisit our conversation with Bill Hanna, the new executive director of the Dean and Barbara White Foundation.  Reporter Michael Puente has a report on the new Gary casino that opened for business on Friday and the impact that a new Chicago casino, if it opens, could have on the city of Gary's fortunes.  We talk to Michael Jackson's second-grade music teacher who recognized the innate talent that he had, even at that early age.  And Lorelei Weimer with Indiana Dunes Tourism and Indiana Landmarks regional field office director Brad Miller talk about some upcoming events. Brad talks about the May 22nd "Logs to Lustrons" 2021 virtual talk. Two couples share their experiences revitalizing two homes in Indiana Dunes National Park: one of them, a 19th Century log home and the other, a post-World War II steel Lustron home.
