Former White House chief of staff and retired U. S. Marines General John Kelly will be the first speaker in Purdue University Northwest's 2019 Sinai Forum series. Leslie Plesac is on "Regionally Speaking" to run down the list of speakers -- some controversial, but all always interesting to hear from.

Today:   Leslie Plesac with Purdue University Northwest's Sinai Forum speaker series joins us with the list of speakers this coming fall -- a list which includes retired General John Kelly, "Sully" Sullenberger, Gloria Steinem and Alan Dershowitz.  The former White House chief of staff is the first speaker on Sept. 8th at the Blue Chip Casino in Michigan City.  All the other speakers will be on the Westville campus.   We also have comments from state Rep. Mara Candelaria Reardon (D-Munster) at a news conference where she and three legislative staffers -- who were allegedly groped by Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill -- announce the filing of a federal court lawsuit against Hill.   IYI chief executive Tami Silverman also talks about the 2019 "Kids Count Data Book," just released today.
