On this episode of Indiana Newsdesk…Ivy Tech is the only public school in the state that’s not getting any money for major building projects. Ahead, why it’s being left out.

Thousands of unexploded bombs and depleted uranium sit on this abandoned Army testing site in Jefferson County. Federal law requires frequent inspections to make sure nothing harmful is leaking into the water. But the Army wants to put an end to those inspections despite concerns from residents. What are the real risks and what is the long term plan for the 50,000 acre site?

Plus a shake up on the State Board of Education. Our StateImpact education team introduces us to the new members who’ll be responsible for crafting the state’s education policies.

And Kokomo is five weeks behind schedule on their baseball stadium. Will it be ready for opening day Saturday?

Those stories plus the latest top headlines from across the state.
