Regionally Speaking, Wednesday, November 24, 2021

The Shoppers Weekly Illinois website

Today:  Diana Bosse, the city of Crown Point's entertainment superintendent, is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about the 2021 "Adopt-A-Family" program, which will assist 12 local families and about 30 children during the holiday season.  Indiana Youth Institute's Tami Silverman was on the program recently to talk about ways to help children learn about the importance of kindness and giving.  We bring back that conversation, along with one with Paige Sharp with the Indiana Arts Commission about an annual program that helps Hoosier artists become better entrepreneurs.  South Shore Arts is a local partner in the program.  Side Effects Public Media reporter Carter Barrett also has a report on conservatorships -- with an example of a Hoosier who was under one for years, controlled by his parents, even though he was an adult with a wife and a child.

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.
