Today:  On this "Reporters' Roundtable," we ask "Post-Tribune" reporter Meredith Colias-Pete and "Times" business reporter Joseph Pete to talk about the stories they put forth in print and online in their respective media.  Meredith's stories include one of a lawsuit filed by the EPA as it investigates the lead-and-arsenic contamination issue in East Chicago, and Joe Pete covers a lot of news-related ground about U.S. Steel and on the ceremony for Midland Metal Products' moving from Chicago into the old Lear Corp. plant in Hammond.  Lakeshore Public Radio's Sharon Jackson has her conversation with an author about the Maharishi Yogi's influence on the Beatles and their music. Ahd we add to the mix, our conversation with officials with the Hoosier Environmental Council on the agency's bringing "Improving Kids' Environment" into the HEC organization.
