Lake County Coronor Merilee Frey, during a program with her staff.

Today:   Lake County Coronor Merilee Frey spoke to a local group about the area's opioid crisis and we bring you the conversation we had with her after the meeting. A little later in the program, we have another new Indiana state legislator from northwest Indiana -- State Rep. Carolyn Jackson (D-1), who defeated Libertarian Party candidate Donna Dunn in the Nov. 6 general election to represent residents of sections of Hammond and Whiting.  She talks about the issues she raised during the campaign that got her elected, many of which she says came from residents she spoke with.

We bring back our conversation with Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch, and another edition of "Green Fleet Radio," from South Shore Clean Cities.  Lauri Keagle, in once again for Carl Lisek, talks with the Technology Integration Program Manager with the U.S. Department of Energy.  Our "friend in fur," Ollie is also back today, to answer more pet questions.  "Ask Ollie" is supported by the Humane Society of Northwest Indiana.
