Soggy Weather Takes Toll On Ohio's Farmers; Lead Safe Cleveland Safe Home Summit; Blue Economy
It has been a soggy spring and we are not done with the heavy rain yet. More rain is the last thing Ohio’s farmers need. They are already losing time and money as the rains prevent them from getting their crops planted. We’ll discuss the impact to farmers and consumers. The Lead Safe Cleveland Coalition prepares for a summit this week. We’ll preview the summit and the plans ahead to tackle lead poisoning in Cleveland. Then, as we near the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Cuyahoga River fire, we'll discuss how the river's comeback and the region's water is helping to drive our economy and create jobs.
