Today:  We begin our conversations with northwest Indiana residents who want to succeed Congressman Pete Visclosky.  The longest-serving U.S. Representative from our area decided not to seek re-election and several have already made their intentions known to be on the Democratic Party ballot in the May 2020 primary election.  Valparaiso attorney Jim Harper is one of them.  We also bring back our conversation with Dee Dee White with Ivy Tech Community College, about the series of casino dealer traiming courses being offered that can provide jobs at local casinos, including the new Hard Rock Casino to be built in Gary.
