Today:  We continue our conversations with new northwest Indiana Mayors with Portage Mayor Sue L:ynch. She talks about the projects she wants to work on in 2020, including some of the stteet projects that have been considered in past administrations.  We have another edition of "Building Northwest Indiana" from the Construction Advancement Foundation and another conversation from the Welcome Project at Valparaiso University.   Ball State University economist Michael Hicks presented a column to "Howey Politics Indiana" that addresses the economic impact of the coronavirus and we ask him about it.  And Valparaiso University jazz professor Jeff Brown talks with us about the program for the 35th annual Jazz Festival coming March 30th through April 3rd.  It includes a New Orleans-style band headlining the Friday evening shows.
