 On this edition of the podcast you'll hear the latest on the search for emergency housing for several residents of an apartment building in Valparaiso, the Hard Rock Casino is coming to Gary, Brandon Smith on Attorney General Curtis Hill's latest attempts to block a federal lawsuit against him, and Chris Nolte has a conversation with Donna Stuckert of the Porter County Recycling and Waste Reduction. All of that, and more, on this edition of “Lakeshore Update”… 

The state is less than a week away from submitting its plan on what to do with $40 million from the Volkswagen emissions settlement. The money will go to help offset the damage done by the company’s violation of the Clean Air Act.
