Today:  Gary Chamber of Commerce executive Chuck Hughes and one of the founders of the city's Eastside Community Development Corp. and Computer Skills and Training Center, Dr. Marlon Mitchell, are on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about what could be a life-changing opportunity for young people who need training for the jobs of the future.  PNC Financial Services economist Abbe Omodunbi joins us with his view of the regional and national economies.  "Post-Tribune" reporter Carole Carlson attended last week's official installation of I.U. Northwest Chancelllor Ken Iwama and wrote both print and online stories, and she talks about the event.  She also talks about the Illinois-based demolition contractor which will tear down the closed and abandoned Lew Wallace High School building in Gary.  The school district's management team recommended the firm to the Distressed Unit Appeals Board in Indianapolis.
