Today:  Ed Feigenbaum, the creator and editor of the "Indiana Gaming Insight" newsletter with Hanna News Service has an update on the Indiana gaming industry, including the latest Indiana Gaming Commission meeting topics that include revenues from the casinos and sportsbooks, as well as the investigation into allegations involving executives with Spectacle Entertainment and former casino operator Centaur Gaming and the probe's impact on the Gary and Terre Haute casino projects.  We also bring back out conversation with Porter County Substance Abuse Council executive director Dawn Pelc and board president Chuck Harris, about the organization's effort to reduce the number of former Porter County jail inmates going back behind bars because of drug-related crimes.  Many of those returning inmates don't have the education or job skills to find meaningful jobs in the community.
