Friday on Lake Effect: Small Businesses in Wisconsin, Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative, Opera Singer

Friday on Lake Effect:

Putting numbers with the rhetoric – how important are small businesses in Wisconsin’s economy? We talk with the Chief Economist and Director of Economic Research for the Small Business Administration in Washington. Then, the Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative hopes a dance party will generate lasting results. Our film contributor previews this month’s Academy Awards, and we chat with opera singer, and Appleton native, Alisa Jordheim ahead of her upcoming performance with the Florentine Opera.
