  • Republicans Drop Latest Effort To Repeal Obamacare

    Republicans pulled the plug on their most recent effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. The bill had a slim chance of passing after three GOP senators formally opposed the bill that was sponsored by fellow Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy. A reporter shares the latest on the fight over healthcare on Capitol Hill.

  • Marine Sanctuary Would Help Preserve Lake Michigan Shipwrecks

    During the heyday of shipping on the Great Lakes, the waters of Lake Michigan were notoriously dangerous and claimed hundreds of vessels. Now, a proposed marine sanctuary off the coast of Ozaukee, Sheboygan, and Manitowoc counties could help preserve shipwrecks and allow the public to learn more about maritime history. We talk with a member of the Wisconsin Maritime Museum about the proposal and the history of Great Lakes shipping.

    How familiar are you with Wisconsin’s maritime past, and the history that lives beneath our state’s waters? Do you wonder about wrecks that may be near where you live or vacation?
