Ship project plies rough seas

  #

This computer rendering shows how the USS Des Moines would look on Milwaukee's lakefront
Compared with the uproar over the proposed Pier Wisconsin building, the USS Des Moines wouldn't seem like such a controversial addition to Milwaukee's lakefront. Backers wonder who could argue with veterans, history and commerce.

For more than five years, a group of mostly Navy veterans has been pushing its plan to bring the decommissioned 1950s-vintage heavy gun cruiser to town. But despite the veterans' persistence, they're mostly sailing in circles, caught in an eddy of bureaucracy and public opinion.   more...

Underwater forest's remains in peril

  #

A cluster of about 50 stumps, rooted on the bottom of Lake Michigan, is all that's left of a grove of trees that was swamped by the rising lake 8,300 years ago.

Now the prehistoric stumps themselves are threatened--by zebra mussels, the pesky little shellfish best known for clogging water intakes.   more...

JOCHEN SCHUEMANN WILL BE THE SKIPPER OF ALINGHI IN SAN FRANCISCO

  #

Triple Olympic gold medallist Jochen Schuemann will be the skipper of Alinghi for the Moët Cup, scheduled to take place between 15th and 20th September in San Francisco, whilst Brad Butterworth will act as tactician.

The Moët Cup is divided into two events: a professional regatta and an owners/founders match. This means that Ernesto Bertarelli and Larry Ellison will compete with each other before handing over the helm to Jochen Schuemann and Gavin Brady.

The two teams will take this opportunity to test new crew and to present their program for the coming years. Both Alinghi and Oracle BMW Racing have indicated that they intend to modernise the Americas' Cup to allow the general public to get closer to the event. Many regattas are scheduled each year and the Moët Cup is being used to kick off the series.   more...

Cuyahoga seeks to buy Whiskey Island

  #

Cuyahoga County wants to buy Whiskey Island, one of the last undeveloped areas along Lake Erie's shoreline in Cleveland.

Dimora visited Whiskey Island for the first time Friday for a birthday party and fund-raiser for Commissioner Tim McCormack and was impressed by the property.

"It is truly a unique piece of property for Cleveland," McCormack said.  more...

They are looking for help from area anglers targeting muskellunge and northern pike to continue research on a newly-discovered bacteria that could threaten the popular fish species.

The department is presenting its third Muskie Fishing Day of the season Wednesday, and are asking people to drop off live fish so the department can continue the research.   more...

 

 





Lighthouse may beckon tourists

  #

Imagine a sunset cruise to a quiet restaurant on an intimate island. The steak there is succulent, and the walleye pan-fried to perfection. From your overnight accommodations, you’ll take in a 360-degree lake view accented by moonlight and outlined by a twinkling shorescape. Waves crash. Gulls wail. An isolated getaway for the rich and famous? Nope. It could be just a half-hour boat ride from the Maumee Bay shoreline.   more...

WILDLIFE OFFICERS ALLOWED TO KILL CORMORANTS

  #

Double-crested cormorants are big fish eaters. And the birds have wreaked havoc on game fish populations throughout the Great Lakes. Up until now, states needed a federal permit to disturb or destroy the cormorant eggs and the birds themselves. A new federal plan will allow agencies in 24 states to control the cormorants on their own.   more...

Lake Erie deep in mystery

  #

Lori Boughton said Lake Erie never fails to mystify her, and this summer it's providing plenty to ponder.

Of particular interest is a toxic form of blue/green algae that is having a banner year, said the chief of the state Department of Environmental Protection's Office of the Great Lakes.

Recent satellite photos of Maumee Bay near Toledo show a vast area of solid green where algae, linked to as many as 75 deaths in Brazil in 1966, covers the lake like a mat.   more...

Rising lakes St. Clair and Erie buoy Mich. boaters

  #
ImageBoaters on Lake Erie enjoyed a good summer of cruising and sailing because of a condition that's been absent in recent years -- rising water levels.

After a half-decade of drought, the relatively rainy summer of 2003 began to gradually fill lakes Erie and St. Clair. After remaining well below 2002 levels for most of this year, Erie now is slightly above last year's level. St. Clair is closing the gap.

The upper Great Lakes remain well below long-term averages. But the recent rise in water levels and the prospect of wetter weather this fall and winter are encouraging to those who rely on the Great Lakes for recreation or livelihoods. They're beginning to hope that the damaging six-year siege of low water is finally coming to an end.  more...

A ship that sank in 1891 in Oceana County was discovered a couple of weeks ago

  #

For over 100 years Daisy Day has rested peacefully just off the Lake Michigan shoreline of Claybanks Township.
Since Oct. 11, 1891, she's burrowed into the lake's sandy bottom waiting to be resurrected.
Daisy Day, the 103-foot wooden steam-powered bulk freight ship, is believed to have been located earlier this month about 40-feet off the banks of the Claybanks Township Park in rural Oceana County.   more...

Water cut in Macomb, Oakland

  #

SHELBY TOWNSHIP -- Joe Costanza stood incredulously over a sink at his restaurant Thursday morning as the water he needed to boil pasta trickled into a pot.

"I go, 'Oh no, not again,' " said Costanza, co-owner of Ristorante Di Fratelli, which lost about $15,000 during the massive power blackout two weeks ago.

A broken transformer at a Port Huron pumping station, a possible side-effect of the blackout, left taps dry for about five hours Thursday. Tens of thousands of Detroit Water and Sewerage Department customers in central Macomb County and parts of Rochester and Rochester Hills in Oakland County had no water or low water pressure.  

Health officials couldn't say if the water was safe for drinking and preparing food. But the facilities used to treat water for bacteria and micro-organisms that cause illness don't work when water systems fail.  more...
