Wednesday on Lake Effect: Gentrification In Milwaukee, Sale of the Journal Sentinel, Bike Culture

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

The push-and-pull of gentrification in Milwaukee, plus why saving old buildings helps the downtown economy.  Also, a former Journal Sentinel staffer comes to terms with the sale of the paper. Then, a middle-grade novel takes on an age-old issue - how kids view their ethnic heritage.  And Milwaukee Magazine takes an in-depth look at bike culture in Milwaukee.
