Today:  The Mascot Hall of Fame officially opened to the public in Whiting and we have two conversations -- first, with the Executive Director of the mascot-themed interactive childrens' museum, Orestes Hernandez and then, with Whiting Mayor Joe Stahura on the important economic development benefits that the Hall of Fame bring to his city.  We also have another edition of "Green Fleet Radio," from South Shore Clean Cities.  Host Carl Lisek talks with an executive with ChargePoint, which supports electric vehicles.

Indiana Youth Institute president-CEO Tami Silverman talks about the holidays, including New Years, and what young people can do tobest cope with the stresses that they can bring.  And our "friend in fur" Ollie is back with the first of a two-part holiday "Ask Ollie," from the Humane Society of Northwest Indiana.
