Wednesday on Lake Effect: Lead Contamination, USS Arizona Band, Flags of Valor

Wednesday on Lake Effect

A new report from the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism illuminates conflicting information about lead in drinking water. Later, on the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, we remember the USS Arizona’s band, which included a clarinetist from Viroqua. Then, the Experimental Aircraft Association Museum in Oshkosh displays some uniquely preserved pieces of World War II airplane nose art. And we meet the founder of a company that employs injured veterans to make unique American flags.
