Today:  a conversation with Ric Frataccia, the Superintendent of the Valparaiso Community Schools, about next month's ribbon-cutting ceremony for the district's newest elementary school -- and an update on the long-range redistricting plan.

Noted Indiana economist, writer and speaker Morton Marcus joins us again for a look at his latest "Eye on the Pie" columns that focus on Hoosier economic topics, including the cost of living in Indiana and the impact of federal entitlement programs like Social Security on the average Indiana resident. 

And we chat with the musical director and conductor of the Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra, Kirk Muspratt, about the upcoming concert season -- and about the impact that the closing of Star Plaza Theatre will have on where the next big pops concert will be held.

Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
