Today:   On this Reporters' Roundtable Thursday, we talk with "Post-Tribune" reporter Carole Carlson, who's covered the major stories of the week surrounding the Gary Communty Schools - state emergency management team, including the revelation that a former state Superintendent of Public Instruction is on the board of the firm that now manages the GCSC.  She reports on the reaction from northwest Indiana state legislators to the news, and also talks about the new emergency manager.  Peter Morikis takes over for the retiring Peggy Hinckley.  And Carole tells us that Gary teachers aren't going to get pay raises next year -- unless something changes, on a statewide level, to allow them.

The Lake Courthouse Foundation celebrates the downtown Crown Point courthouse's 140th anniversary with a one-time-only Lake County Council meeting, in the historic building where they were first held.  Carrie Napoleon of the Courthouse Foundation (and a former reporter) talks with us about the December 11th event, to be held in the third-floor Court Room. 

And Lakeshore Public Radio's Dee Dotson talks with Vickie Henn, executive vice-president and chief human resources officer of PNC Financial Services Group, who was keynote speaker at the recent Michigan City Chamber of Commerce's "100 Inspiring Women" luncheon.
