Today: Lake Area United Way is continuing in its mission to help low-income Lake County residents with the services and assistance they need the most –including adequate child care for working families — with a collaboration with Methodist Hospitals to create a new child care center at the hospital’s Northlake campus in Gary. Lisa Dougherty, the president and CEO with the United Way, is with us to talk about the “child care desert” issues, the new project and the financial help they received from Early Learning Indiana to make it happen. We have another edition of “Green Fleet Radio,” from South Shore Clean Cities and NIRPC, and this one focuses on the Indiana Toll Road’s sustainability programs. Bill McCall with ITR is with host Carl Lisek. And we bring back our conversations with Merrillville-based Cimcor chiel executive Robert Johnson III about cybersecurity concerns, and with Bill Wozniak of INVestEd about a recent Indiana study on higher education expenses.
