Today:  Valparaiso Mayor Matt Murphy is back on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about his city: the latest action by the City Council to deal with issues like properties which become public nuisances -- in particular, too many police calls -- and establishment of the new Youth Council, along with updates on street repaving projects.  We also bring back our conversation with Foster Success president-CEO Maggie Stevens about a recent study and its report issued in partnership with the Indiana Commission for Higher Education, on programs established at the state's public colleges and universities to assist students coming out of foster care who need help in finding enough to eat or a place to live, when they arrive on campus for the new school year.
