Today:  A northwest Indiana travel specialist arranges professionally-accompanied group cruises and vacations for those with diagnoses like dementia-Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, MS, cancer and the like – and they include their caregivers and family members. The company's owner, Kathy Shoaf, is back on "Regionally Speaking" with a post-pandemic update.  Lake County Democratic Party chairman Jim Weiser talks about today's local visit from the "American Rescue Plan Tour," at Wicker Park in Highland.  State chairman Mike Schmuhl joins Congressman Frank Mrvan, Hammond Mayor Tom McDermott Jr. and AFT state chairperson GlenEva Dunham of Gary for the event. (Pictured: the official launch of the ARP Tour on June 3rd outside the Statehouse with former U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly.)

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.
