Enjoy an “island experience” at Lighthouse Festival

Enjoy an island experience on the mainland at the Toledo Lighthouse Waterfront Festival July 11 and 12 at Maumee Bay State Park in Oregon.

Festivalgoers can enjoy boat rides around the lighthouse on a restored Cedar Point boat; nautical arts and crafts; a lighthouse photo contest; a sand castle contest; clam chowder contest; and lots of entertainment

Festival hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Admission and parking are free.
Highlights include:


After months of work and hundreds of suggestions from the public,

the Toledo Science Center, formerly COSI Toledo, has a new name – the Imagination Station™.

“The name really does a great job of describing exactly what our science center is all about,” said Robert C. Savage, vice chair of the Imagination Station and chair of the “Create a Great Name Committee.” “Eleven different individuals suggested ‘Imagination Station’ during the call for entries.”

More than 2,800 entries –2,000 different names¬ – were submitted by people of all ages during the naming process. Names were entered online, mailed, e-mailed and faxed. The 20-member committee reviewed all the entries and then narrowed the field. It sent a short list of name ideas to the Science Center’s Board of Trustees, who made the final selection.


Timing may be everything, but wording isn’t far behind.

Consider one of the most famous toasts of all –Humphrey Bogart’s words to Ingrid Bergman – “Here’s looking at you, kid” in the legendary 1942 film, “Casablanca.”

Now trade “kid” for another endearment. No big deal? Maybe. But Bogie probably would have achieved another kind of immortality if he’d raised his glass to Bergman and said, “Here’s looking at you…babycakes!”
