Today:  Lake County Fair board treasurer Arlene Marcinek is back on "Regionally Speaking" with her conversation about this year's Fair that is opening in Crown Point on Friday and running through Aug. 15th.  Indiana Public Broadcasting reporter Dylan Peers McCoy has a report on how a curious alumnus found a way to honor the first Black woman to graduate from a largely-white high school. And financial planner and student loan expert Brian Walsh tells us how parents and students can reduce the expected headaches in coming up with ways to pay for college, for both tuition and for living costs on campus.

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.
