Lake Erie and other bodies of water belong to all of us, a water-filled playground for boating, swimming and fishing. But do we own the shores and banks? Do we get a little sand with our surf? Property owners along Lake Erie say beaches connected to their land belong to them; the public's rights stop where the water hits the land. Lower courts have agreed. And now the state Supreme Court must decide who owns the shoreline. Private property vs. the public interest, this morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.


Richard Cordray, Ohio Attorney General
