Today:  Rex Richards, the president of the Valparaiso Chamber of Commerce, is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about how the city's economy is bouncing back from the pandemic with more new businesses.   U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Insurance Service executive director Daniel Kennaghan talks about the modernization of 10 veterans' and service members' programs totalling more than $1-trillion and currently serving more than 5.6-million veterans.  And Anthony Swinger with the Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor reminds us that -- one month from now -- ten-digit dialing in the 219 and 574 area codes will officially take effect.  The change to ten-digit dialing is necessary to accommodate the national '988' National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.  The six-month transition period began in April.

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.
