Today:   We talk with Robin Minton-Holmes with the Center for Workforce Innovations and Allison Bertl, WorkOne business services manager, about the latest northwest Indiana Workforce Board report on the state of the Region's workforce and job markets available to those seeking employment.  Lakeshore Public Radio's Sharon Jackson also interviewed Heather Ennis with the Northwest Indiana Forum about the organization's work on a region-wide plan.

We have another conversation from the Welcome Project at Valparaiso University today.  This time, a former newspaper reporter recounts how the Region's attitudes on race were revealed in their readers' comments.

And Tami Silverman of the Indiana Youth Institute tells abouot a recent "op-ed" piece that she recently wrote for Indiana media outlets that focuses on a recent report on issues affecting young people, as well as offering some ways to keep youth engaged and healthy during the summer months when they're not in school.
