Today:  On this Reporters Roundtable edition of "Regionally Speaking,"we talk with Dan Carden and Rob Earnshaw of the "Times of Northwest Indiana," Greg Tejeda of the "Post-Tribune," Stan Maddux -- a LaPorte County correspondent for the "Times" and "South Bend Tribune" as well as newsman for two Laporte radio stations -- and we also have conversations from northwest Indiana reporter Michael Puente and Lakeshore Public Radio's Sharon Jackson.
