Today:  The Valparaiso-based Center for Workforce Innovations' adult education program is helping   northwest Indiana residents who don't have high school diplomas work toward their High School Equivalency certificates.  We talk to one of the program's latest graduates and with her teacher on "Regionally Speaking."  The young woman's led a tough life, but is working hard to turn it all around now.  We bring back our conversation with U.S. Army (Afghan War) veteran and Dyer resident Chris McClanathan on his effort to bring his one-time interpreter and his family out of Afghanistan.  And we find out more about the Indiana data in a report from "Safewise" on the state of gun safety in America.
