Today:  We have our conversations with both Lake County political party leaders:  Democratic Party chairman Jim Weiser and Republican Party chairman Dan Dernulc. Weiser talks about his party's new candidates out campaigning for their respective town and city elections and Dernulc does the same, including candidates looking to hold onto existing GOP seats and ones trying to gain new ones.  We also bring you today's  "Building Northwest Indiana and a conversation from the Welcome Project at Valparaiso University.  Northwest Indiana political activist Ruth Needleman has a lot to talk about today, including local events coming up around Labor Day.

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.
