Today:  Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission executive director Ty Warner is on "Regionally Speaking" in an encore conversation about "transit-oriented development" (one such project is pictured above) and how it fits in with projects like the South Shore Line expansion.  We have more about a veterans' job fair to be held Thursday at Soldier Field in Chicago, co-sponsored by the DAV and other groups.  And Erika Dahl of the South Shore Convention and Visitors Authority talks about a big sporting event this weekend.  More than 180 softball teams from across the Midwest are in northwest Indiana to compete in the National Softball Association Girls’ Fast Pitch “B” & “C” Northern World Series.   Games are being played in communities across the region, and it's expected to have a big local economic impact.
