Tuesday on Lake Effect: Conservation Stewardship Program Changes, Musician Stephen Wade

Tuesday on Lake Effect:

Today on the show, the debate over changes to a conservation stewardship program that are proposed under the new Farm Bill – some say they are unfair to small-scale farmers. Later, the changing landscape for Wisconsin’s Indian nations in the 21st Century. Stephen Wade showcases some uniquely American music in a one man show at the Milwaukee Rep’s Stackner Cabaret. Our sports contributor gets philosophical about the Packers’ playoff loss. And the latest installment in our Precious Lives series.
