Today:    On this Reporters' Roundtable Thursday, we check in first with Indiana Public Broadcasting's Statehouse reporter Brandon Smith and his guests on Indiana Week in Review, prepared just ahead of this week's opening of the 2019 General Assembly.  It includes a look at Indiana politics in 2018 and other topics.  We bring back our conversation with CNHI community newspapers' reporter Scott Miley about his series on Indiana township governments, and Michael Puente offers his feature on East Chicago's historic Marktown neighborhood and the residents who are unhappy with offers that BP is making for their homes.
