Today:  Indiana economist-writer-speaker Morton Marcus is back on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about the topics in his recent "Eye On The Pie" columns. They range from the Hoosier economy in general, to his observations on the U.S. Census reports just released, to the need for properly retraining residents for available jobs and new careers.  Northwest Indiana financial advisor Greg Hammer connects a link between pop star Britney Spears's financial problems and making sure that one has an estate plan in place.   "Indiana Gaming Insight" newsletter creator and editor Ed Feigenbaum has the latest regional and statewide casino news.  And Side Effects Public Media reporter Carter Barrett has a report on the concerns of Hoosier hospitals that there may not be enough ambulances to transport patients because of the issues surrounding reimbursement for those EMS services.

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.
