Today:   We talk to Sandra Albro, who was manager for "Vacant to Vibrant," a project that brought together greening experts with the city of Gary and residents of the Aetna neighborhood to re-purpose vacant lots -- some of them vacant for 20 years -- into green spaces that provide stormwater management, recreation and beauty to the community.  Sandra's book "Vacant to Vibrant" is available from Island Press. During this Asian-Pacific Heritage Month, northwest Indiana state Representative Chris Chyung was featured in a recent local television program. The Democrat is the first Asian-American member of the Indiana General Assembly. We have for you today, his earlier "Regionally Speaking" conversation on the 2019 session -- his first.

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.
