Today:  on this Reporters Roundtable Thursday, we turn to Meredith Colias-Pete with the "Post-Tribune" for her stories, mainly about education and the General Assembly session, and to Jon Gard, who is a reporter for the LaPorte "Herald Argus" and the Michigan City "News Dispatch."

Jon's stories focus on recent LaPorte County tax abatements and the business success stories behind them,  as well as other LaPorte County news.  We also bring back our conversation from last December with "Chicago Reporter" education reporter Kalyn Belsha, about a family that moved from Chicago's Austin neighborhood to Gary.
