Policing the Great Lakes The U.S. Coast Guard is famous for its search and rescue work, but there’s a lot more to policing the Great Lakes than fishing unlucky boaters out of the drink. The Coast Guard secures waterfront borders, protects the environment, keeps traffic moving on the St. Lawrence Seaway, aids commerce and responds to natural disasters. Rear Admiral Michael Parks commands the Coast Guard's vast 9th district -- Guardians of the Great Lakes -- from his post in Cleveland. Monday at 9 on 90.3 we bring you an encore presentation of this maritime discussion.
