Tuesday on Lake Effect: Vaccine Rollout, COVID-19 Recession, 'Latino Wisconsin,' Cemetery Symbolism

Tuesday on Lake Effect

We look at the vaccine rollout in Milwaukee and learn about the different ways people may get it. Then, how the economic woes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic are transforming Milwaukee. We learn about a film that documents the importance of the Latino community to Wisconsin’s culture. Plus, we speak with a Forest Home Cemetery historian to learn about the art and symbolism found on gravestones.


  • Dr. Heather Paradis, medical director for the Milwaukee Health Department
  • Scott Adams, chair of the department of economics at UW-Milwaukee
  • Georgia Pabst, co-producer of the documentary Latino Wisconsin
  • Paul Haubrich, tour guide and historian at Forest Home Cemetery
