Today: As interest rates continue to soar, many people are still priced out of the highly competitive housing market. That mix has also set rental rates to a new high so we're speaking with housing advocates about resources that are available right here in Indiana. The MAAC Foundation is planning a huge event to recognize first responders in the Region. Celina Weatherwax joined us to give details on the event scheduled for Saturday, August 27, 2022. And Ball State University professor of economics Michael Hicks, Ph.D tells us 'It Is Time to Face the Facts About Factory Jobs'. All of that on this edition of Regionally Speaking.
