Monday on Lake Effect: Proposed City & County Budgets, 'Beats Me,' Your Genome & Food Choices

Monday on Lake Effect:

The proposed city and county budgets are being debated…we’ll do the numbers with The Public Policy Forum’s Rob Henken. Then, our "Beats Me" segment explores the history of what some call the area’s crown jewels - Milwaukee County’s parks. And in an era of fad diets and pseudo-science, the founder of a new start-up wants to put your genome to work to help you decide what to eat. Plus we talk apples with Wisconsin Foodie Kyle Cherek.
