Today:   We talk with Ryan Smiley, the CEO of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana about the start of a major capital enhancement and renovation project for the 100th anniversary of the historic Katherine House in East Chicago's Harbor Neighborhood.  The project already has major financial support and commitments needed, to makeover the building on Deodar Street into a more modern facility that will benefit East Chicago children and their families. 

Later on, Brad Miller of Indiana Landmarks tells us about the fantastic interest in tickets for this year's "Century of Progress Homes Talk and Tour" on September 28th and 28th.  They're all sold out -- and it happened in a fraction of a day!

We also bring you another conversation from the Welcome Project at Valparaiso University.  The Welcome Project collects first-person stories and pairs these with intentional conversations, to help forge stronger ties within and across our communities. 

And Indiana Public Broadcasting's environment reporter Rebecca Thiele tells about the lack of definitive research into the connection with wind turbine farms and health outcomes for  people who live near them. Rebecca looks into what scientists have to say.
