Today:   it's Reporters Roundtable Thursday, where we talk with members of the northwest Indiana media about the stories they produced for their print and online readers.  On the program today -- "Times of Northwest Indiana" Statehouse reporter Dan Carden, business reporter Joseph Pete, Lake County government reporter Bill Dolan and "Times" community reporter Ed Bierschenk, who covers stories in Gary, Hammond and -- this week, the latest on the Mascot Hall of Fame in Whiting.

Dan's stories from the state capital cover workforce development as well as Gov. Eric Holcomb's legislative agenda for the 2018 General Assembly session.  Ed looks at news from both Hammond and Gary City Halls in addition to his update on the Mascot Hall of Fame.  Bill has a number of stories from the Lake County Government Center, including the Lake County Sheriff's Department, and Joseph brings us up-to-date on news involving the local U.S. Steel mills and corporate news as well from ArcelorMittal.  He also has news on the program of an authentic Irish pub now open for business in Chesterton by a very experienced hand at running Irish bars.
