Today:    Merrilville Town Councilman Leonard White is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about the town, what it plans (for now) to do with the American Rescue Plan funds it will receive from the federal government and about its new businesses, including the recent groundbreaking for the new Domino's Pizza supply chain facility. Gary native and community activist Korry Shepard shares his thoughts on historic preservation and economic development in his hometown.  And we revisit "Off Mic" host Michael Puente's conversation with a concerned Valparaiso resident and member of "Allies Against Racism," over the controversy that a recent Popcorn Festival parade float brought to her city.
