Today:   We talk with Dave Benjamin of the Great Lakes Surf Rescue Project about the alarming number of drownings in Lake Michigan this year -- although he says it's been worse in the past.  He talks about a recent rescue effort that he personally joined in, at Washington Park beach in Michigan City, and offers tips to swmmers when they step into Lake Michigan.  Jena Bellezza with the Indiana Parenting Institute tells about an August 17th conference to be held in the I.U. Northwest's Arts and Sciences Building and Tami Silverman with the Indiana Youth Institute joins us to review the measures which were brought up the 2019 General Assembly session that affected Hoosier youth. 

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.
