Lisa Beck for State Rep. Facebook page

Today:   An extended conversation with one of the new state legislators, State Rep. Lisa Beck (D-19), who joined her northwest Indiana colleagues for swearing-in and Organization Day at the Statehouse, in advance of the 2019 General Assembly session.   We also have another edition of "Green Fleet Radio," supported by South Shore Clean Cities.  Lauri Keagle is in once again for host Carl Lisek, with a conversation with John Scharingson, the Executive Director, Sales & Marketing at the Renewable Energy Group.

Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch is with us to talk some of the projects with agencies that she oversees, and her view on what the major issues of the 2019 General Assembly session might be.  And Whiting native and Ball State University architecture graduate Gwen Stricker talks about the historic preservation project on a southern Indiana schoolhouse that she and other members of her student team worked on -- that led to a 2nd place award in a national competition.

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.
