Regionally Speaking, Thursday, October 29, 2020
Today: Jena Bellezza, the COO of the Indiana Parenting Institute, is with us to talk about the two recent online public forums dealing with issues like implicit bias, racism, child abuse and neglect that were part of the series that took the place of an Indiana University Northwest Annual Forum -- that would have been presented in April, had it not been cancelled by the coronavirus pandemic. Side Effects Public Media's Jake Harper has a report on the staffing problems at the Miami Correctional Facility. We bring back our conversation with Gary Community Schools manager Paige McNulty on the tax referendum that is on the Nov. 3rd election ballot, and "Post-Tribune" reporter Carrie Napoleon talks about the stories she put out in print and online. They include this week's announcement of the Akyumen Industries' plans to move its headquarters to the Midwest and open a big manufacturing facility in Gary.
