Thursday on Lake Effect: Milwaukee Developments, 2018 Environmental ReCap & Poet John Koethe

Thursday on Lake Effect

We look at some of the many developments transforming Milwaukee’s Central City, including the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra’s plans for the Warner Grand Theatre complex and the much-anticipated Couture building on the lakefront. Then, WUWM's environmental reporter Susan Bence looks back at the big stories of 2018 and looks ahead at what might dominate environmental news in 2019. And we revisit an interview with Milwaukee poet and philosopher John Koethe, who recently celebrated 50 years of writing poems.
