Today:  we revisit our conversations with Lake County Sheriff Oscar Martinez, Jr. and Portage Police Chief Troy Williams on being prepared for an active shooter situation, in light of the recent one at a high school in Florida.  Police departments in communities like in Portage are offering workshops to educate the public in how they can deal with these serious incidents.

We have for you another conversation from the Welcome Project at Valparaiso University, this time with a young Muslim woman here in northwest Indiana.

East Chicago native and resident Guy Rhodes lists his talents as a photographer as well as lighting designer and video producer on his resume -- and what he does every day.  Guy just returned from South Korea, where he was stationed right in the middle of the Winter Olympics, taking dramatic (and often artistic) photos of snowboarders and skiers in competition for the gold.  Guy joined us in the studio to talk about himself and his work, which you can see right here on his blog.
