Wednesday on Lake Effect: Primary Results, Pollinator Gardens, and 'Orphan Train'

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

We look back at Election Day in Wisconsin – which was for a week, the center of the American political universe. We break down both the primary election results and the numbers from state and local races. Later, when you set up a pollinator garden, you might lose a few of the helpful bug to predators, but that’s OK. And a playwright learns about Orphan Trains for a new production, and surprisingly finds something to admire.
