Today:   An extended review of Tuesday's three public school referenda elections in Lake County -- East Chicago, Lake Station and Munster.  We have comments from School Town of Munster Superintendent Jeffery Hendrix, Lake Station Community Schools Superintendent Thomas Cripliver, a statement from School City of East Chicago Superintendent Paige McNulty and the director of the Lake County Board of Elections, Michelle Fajman, whose staff counted the votes from the three communities. 

Valparaiso University School of Engineering Eric Johnson talks about the new Innovation Hub being established on campus this fall that will be a collaborative effort by his school and the VU School of Business. 

And we bring back a "CounterPoint" Lakeshore PBS conversation about activism, between host Garrard McClendon, IU Northwest professor Eva Bottando and Sheliah Garland of National Nurses United.
