Indiana Landmarks House of Tomorrow.png
A Michigan City high school group is renovating a part of the "House of Tomorrow," one of the experimental houses brought to Beverly Shores after the 1933 World's Fair in Chicago. Todd Zeiger with Indiana Landmarks explains the work they're doing toward restoring the historic house.

Today: Patrick De Haan, the head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy is on "Regionally Speaking" to bring us the latest on gasoline prices in the Midwest and the nation, as the Memorial Day holiday travel period draws near and as the nation’s average gas price has gone up, for the fifth straight week. Todd Zeiger, Indiana Landmarks northern Indiana director, also talks about the renovation work taken on by some local high school students on a section of the historic “House of Tomorrow” along Beverly Shores, currently closed up and awaiting someone to buy it, renovate it and live in it. We also bring back our conversation with Indiana State Police Sgt. John Perrine, about the department's public awareness efforts in dealing with human trafficking — it is not just a northwest Indiana issue but a serious statewide issue.
