Lake Erie Dredging, Super Opioids, Statehouse Update

Featured Audio

Lake Erie.  It's one of the region's most valued natural assets--supplying drinking water to more than 70 communities in Northeast Ohio.  The lake also supports jobs and recreation.  Lake Erie is at the center of ongoing discussions between both the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  

Plus, more powerful, dangerous opioids are moving into Northeast Ohio raising the stakes for law enforcement to stay ahead of the growing epidemic.

Then, a medical marijuana bill moves ahead in Ohio.
