On this episode of Indiana Newsdesk… more than 80-percent of RVs sold are manufactured here in Indiana. Business is really good right now. So good in fact, that manufacturers are struggling to find people to work. Ahead, the lengths companies are going to to find workers, and what will happen to production if demand keeps going up while staff positions go unfilled.

Plus very few people have seen the controversial documents dealing with Saudi Arabia and 9-11. There’s a debate now over whether to release the papers publicly. Ahead we talk to Lee Hamilton, who served on the 9-11 commission, about what’s in the documents and whether he thinks their content needs to be made available.

Plus, there’s a process for helping people recover for surgery… it might involve rehab or physical therapy. But what about our pets? Ahead, a new program being tested at Purdue that’s showing some promising results.

Those stories plus the latest headlines from across the state.
