Today:   We bring back our conversation with Jesse Kharbanda and Dr. Indra Frank with the Hoosier Environmental Council on the recent merger of "Improving Kids' Environment" with the HEC -- and, later in the program, with Conservation Law Center staff attorney Jeff Hyman on HB1031, the measure in the Legislature dealing with public access to Lake Michigan.  "Green Fleet Radio" from South Shore Clean Cities and NIRPC is once again on-the-air with host Carl Lisek. And we talk with Valparaiso University freshman Steven Mileusnich about his petition drive, both on campus and on Change.org, to "Save VU Jazz!"
