Tuesday on Lake Effect: Jock Tax, UWM Grad With Dual Careers, Author Michael Perry

Tuesday on Lake Effect:

A local community group is stepping forward to express its opposition to the idea of a so-called “jock tax” to help finance a new downtown basketball arena. Later, we’ll speak with a UWM grad whose dual careers – as a nurse and a rear admiral in the Navy – were both about service. Essayist Avi Lank takes on the dollar bill; and Wisconsin writer Michael Perry departs from his memoir writing to author a novel aimed at middle-grade readers.
