Today:  On this Reporter's Roundtable Thursday, we asked Indiana Public Broadcasting Stations' statehouse reporter Brandon Smith to talk about the special legislative session on Monday, and Joseph Pete of the "Times of Northwest Indiana" to tell us about the stories he posted online and in print.   They included the dramatic rise in gasoline prices in northwest Indiana and of an upcoming cable TV network documentary about a Hobart woman who could be considered a serial killer.

We also bring you the latest in the federal assistance program to residents and businesses affected by the April floods in northwest Indiana.  FEMA spokesman William Lindsey and SBA spokesperson Janel Finley came into the Lakeshore Public Radio studos on Wednesday.
