Today:  We talk with Melanie Dunajeski and Shelbie Byers, two management-side labor and employment attorneys who were the guest speakers at today's "Morning Mingle" session at the Crossroads Regional Chamber of Commerce office in Merrillville.   Their topic: what to expect in labor and employment law from the incoming Trump administration.

Lakeshore Public Radio's Steven Lattimore visited the Veterans Cafe in Merrillville to not only sample the food but talk to those at the cafe who benefit from the business' mission of helping local veterans.

And we talk with State Senator Eddie Melton (D-Gary) about the stories that he'll tell and the comments that he'll make at a mentoring training session in Gary on January 27 and January 28. 

Melton is co-sponsoring the event, along with the Urban League of Northwest Indiana and the Indiana Youth Institute.
