Today:   Bill Hanna, the chief executive officer for the Dean and Barbara White Family Foundation, is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about his role with the Foundation and its support of Lake and Porter County community projects and programs that promote health, wellness and offer economic development support.  Indiana University Northwest vice chancellor for university advancement and external affairs Jeri Pat Gabbert has an update on the just-completed I.U. Bicentennial campaign that's raised $10 million for the Gary campus.  She talks about the campaign's impact on the northwest Indiana community. And we bring back our conversation with Maya Energy LLC executive Jim Ventura about the solid waste and recyclables processing plant that will be built on Gary's west side.  Construction work on the site will begin soon.

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.
