Friday on Lake Effect: Meta House Expansion, Tourism Poll, Environmental Film Festival

Friday on Lake Effect:

A Milwaukee alcohol and drug treatment center announces plans to expand – in part because its government funding is shrinking.  Later, tourism numbers rolling out this morning show some positives locally and around the state.  We’ll learn about the first annual Great Lakes Environmental Film Festival.  And 40 years after the end of the Vietnam War, a middle grade novel sends its young protagonist back to her ancestral home.
