Regionally Speaking, Monday, August 30, 2021

Today:  Gary Community School Corp. manager Dr. Paige McNulty is on "Regionally Speaking" with an update on how the school district has done as the new school year gets underway, including on the needed repairs to some buildings to deal with the (physcially) hot beginning to a new year.  The creators of a new documentary on the late PBS painter Bob Ross talk about the new program, now streaming online.  And Julia Vaughn with the Indiana Citizens Redistricting Commission talks about the public pressure on Hoosier legislators not to make the same mistakes of the past that resulted in "gerrymandered" legislative and congressional districts.  General Assembly members return to Indianapolis early next month to begin their work -- but citizen advocates are worried that they've already made up their minds.

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.
