Friday on Lake Effect: National Catholic Forensic League, African-American Midwives, Melinda Myers

Friday on Lake Effect:


A graduating high school senior reflects on the lessons she learned working summers working with her dad, as a plumber's helper.  Later, what brings 3,600 of the best young public speakers in the country to Milwaukee this weekend.  How a lack of African-American midwives might be affecting the black infant mortality rate in Wisconsin.  And our gardening contributor helps us get ready for Memorial Day weekend.
