Drinking Water Infrastructure: Who Pays and How (And For What)

  #
There is an increasingly urgent need for renewed investment in our communities' water infrastructure. This need is driven by the unfortunate reality that for the many decades, funding to maintain water systems has fallen short of the cost of providing safe drinking water, sewage treatment and flood control. The result is decaying or outdated infrastructure that cannot keep pace with changing demand for water and wastewater treatment, growing population and increasingly heavy rainfall events. -  more

55 years ago this Friday, the Mackinac Bridge was officially dedicated. While the bridge opened on, November 1, 1957, it was not officially dedicated until the following summer on June 28, 1958.  more...

Prime beaches along the Lake Erie coast

  #

Seven top beaches, one for every Ohio county bordering Lake Erie:

Maumee Bay State Park

Lake Erie's westernmost beach is also among the most entertaining. Beach volleyball? Check. Jet Ski rentals? Check. Sand, surf, concerts and more? Check, check, check, check.

The beach, part of a state resort complex, is also adjacent to a golf course, hiking trails, a nature center and 120-room lodge. So when you get bored with the sand -- or the weather turns nasty -- there are lots of alternative activities close by.  more...

Tall ships in Port Dalhousie inspire wannabe pirates

  #

ST. CATHARINES - There's nothing like the sight of varnished teak, polished brass and coiled rigging to bring out the pirate in all of us.

"Look at me, Mom! Pirates do this all the time!" said four-year-old Liam Semple of Waterloo, hanging from the rigging of the Pride of Baltimore II, during the two-day 1812 St. Catharines Tall Ships visit in Port Dalhousie. "Take a picture," he instructed his mother, Roshan Dore Semple.

But no one looked more pirate-ish Sunday than five-year-old Wolf Phelps of Fort Erie, who used the occasion of the visit of the Pride of Baltimore, Unicorn and Lynx to don full pirate garb, including boots, hat, dreadlocks, and painted-by-mom goatee and mustache.

"He'd go to school like that every day if we let him," said Debra Phelps, Wolf's mother. Ever since Wolf watched the movie Pirates of the Caribbean two years ago, he's been digging for treasure in the yard, she said.  more...

New Bill Would Be a Boost for America’s Great Lakes

  #
The Great Lakes are a truly great resource. They’re home to more than 300 bird species, including spotted sandpipers and herons that wade in the coastal marshes, and ospreys and eagles that fish the waters. Muskrats burrow into banks, and wolves, black bears, and moose inhabit wetlands. The lakes hold more freshwater than anywhere else on earth except the polar ice caps, and they supply drinking water to 42 million Americans. On June 26, senators introduced a bill to protect and restore this important region.  more...

Lake Superior fisheries OK a year after storm

  #
Fish populations in Lake Superior and its surrounding fisheries are faring much better than expected a year after a major storm dumped up to 10 inches of rain in the Duluth area and sent tons of sediment rushing into the big lake and its surrounding rivers and streams.

"I'd say the Lake Superior fishery was little affected," said Don Schreiner, Department of Natural Resources area fisheries supervisor for Lake Superior. "Fishing this spring has been gangbusters. Lots of lake trout and coho and chinook salmon are being caught."  more...

Brown trout stocked in Wisconsin's Lake Superior waters

  #

Lake Superior anglers near Duluth and Superior may soon be catching a new strain of brown trout. In late May, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources stocked about 60,000 Seeforellen-strain brown trout in Lake Superior waters near Superior. The fish were 5 to 6 inches long.

The stocking came in response to anglers who were unhappy that the Wisconsin DNR had refused to continue stocking Chinook salmon in the area, said Peter Stevens, supervisor of Lake Superior fisheries for the DNR.  more...

Y’all in the Great Lakes wouldn’t have just slaw with your Coke and crawdads

  #

A while back I wrote about the Northern Cities Vowel Shift, a phrase language experts use to describe an accent particular to our region.

It’s not just the accent. A North Carolina State University statistics graduate student recently published a series of maps showing regional variation in word use.

A good one is the generic phrase we use to describe a sweetened carbonated beverage. The map created by Joshua Katz shows that people on the West Coast and in the Northeast call it soda. In the south it is referred to as Coke – even when it’s a beverage other than Coke. more...
