Dredging equipment working on the Grand Calumet River in East Chicago brought up toxic sediment, and an EPA agreement on landfilling the contaminated sediment is one of the stories on "Reporters Roundtable" today.

Today:   On this "Reporters' Roundtable Thunrday," we check in with Sarah Reese and Lauren Cross of the "Times," to talk about the stories they worked and posted online and in print this week.  They include updates on where toxic contamination dredged from the Grand Calumet River and Indiana Harbor Ship Canal is to be disposed of, the "case of the dead swans" found in a Hammond lake, and if the city of Gary is still considering about asking for state permission to build its own construction-demolition waste landfill.

We also find out the best Christmas movies to watch this year and learn more about the soon-to-be dissolved Trump Foundation.

For those stories, we turn to Lakeshore Public Radio's Sharon Jackson and Dee Dotson.  And Kristen Dreyer Kramer tells us about a good holiday book to read... about a Christmas wedding.
