Tuesday on Lake Effect: Free Bus Ride System, Downer Woods, Precious Lives

Tuesday on Lake Effect:

The broad impact the county board chair hopes a new free bus ride system would have beyond the seniors and disabled people it would serve. Later, concerns about a proposal to remove university oversight from Downer Woods, an 11-acre parcel of UWM. We’ll speak with writer Emily Gray Tedrowe about her novel of the Wisconsin homefront during the Iraq War. And the latest installment in our Precious Lives series on kids and gun violence around Milwaukee.
