Today:   Indiana University Northwest economist Micah Pollak is on "Regionally Speaking" with an update on his Twitter-feed conversation on the impact of COVID-19 on northwest Indiana and with the latest news on northwest Indiana's economy.  Some of it is related to the pandemic and of its impact on the local workforce.  Drew Richardson, the vice-president of product and business development for IHIE, the Indiana Health Information Exchange, talks about the nonprofit organization and of its work to expand across northwest Indiana, because of new health system contributors.  We also bring back our conversation with Rex Richards with the Valparaiso Chamber of Commerce, about new and existing businesses in the city, as we near the end of 2021. And the Indiana Toll Road is getting "greener," which will benefit the Region's broadband internet services.   We have a report on that.
