Midmorning: Lake levels and family money matters
Posted at 7:43 AM on July 9, 2007 by Bill Wareham
Lake Superior's lower lake levels worry boaters, and may cause even longer term affects on shipping. Also the temperatures of the lake are rising faster over time than the air. At 9 a.m., Midmorning checks in on lake levels and drought here and there in Minnesota.
Kate Smith sits in for Kerri Miller this week. Her 9 a.m. guests are Jay Austin, assistant professor of physics at the Large Water Observatory at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. His study on the warming of Lake Superior was published this past spring; and Dale Bergeron, assistant professor and maritime educator at Minnesota Sea Grant; and Pete Boulay, assistant state climatologist with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
At 10 a.m., money and finances, issues that can create stress for families. But it doesn't always have to be that way. Wall Street Journal columnist Jeff Opdyke joins Midmorning to offer his ideas on what to do when love and money come to a head.
