Wednesday on Lake Effect: Water Clashes, Empathy on the Wane, Kathleen Ernst, "Harvey" on Stage

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

A look at the contentious issues surrounding groundwater policy in Wisconsin’s Central Sands region. Later, how empathetic are Americans in general? A new book talks about the present and future of empathy. Writer Kathleen Ernst’s latest mystery tackles some big social issues in addition to murder. And we’ll catch up with three long-time Milwaukee Rep actors who are reunited on stage in the play Harvey.
