Today: We have a remembrance of northwest Indiana environmental activist Lee Botts, who passed away on Saturday at age 91.  We have comments that she made in 2009 to a local video producer and on "Eye on the Arts" conversation on Lakeshore PBS in January 2019 that was recorded ahead of the "Shifting Sands" documentary.  State Representative Chris Chyung (D-Dyer) has been holding public town hall sessions on public education issues lately and two more are coming up this week.  He'll talk about them, and we bring back our conversation with Allison Wuerffel with the Welcome Project at Valparaiso University about the NEH grant that is supporting the current "Flight Paths" initiative.John Cain with South Shore Arts has another "Eye on the Arts" conversaton about stage programs coming up in the Region.

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.
