Asian carp are voracious eaters that can wipe out native fish, and experts say if the carp make their way into Lake Erie it would wreak havoc on the ecosystem and economy.

For years, conservationists and national leaders have examined ways to stop the spread of the invasive species, which has established itself in the Mississippi River.

A study released this week from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers outlines eight possible approaches, including a physical barrier.

A 28kW solar array installed this summer at V.E. Petersen Co., Inc., 28101 E. Broadway, works weekends as well as during the week for the company, which normally only keeps weekday hours. 

The company estimates the array, which went into operation in September and cost about $100,000, will produce about 30 percent of the power V.E. Petersen consumes, says Jeff Lincoln, vice president of operations.

“The summer months are when we’ll save the most because of the sunlight. We can monitor it on the Internet and see when a cloud, for example, is blocking the light. The meters come down and go right back up when it passes. It’s 108 panels on the roof. It’s a very well done system, You don’t even know it’s up there when you’re looking from the street,” Lincoln said. “The panels lay flat on the roof.”

 
Lake Twp.-Cemetery advisory board needed, trustee says

The newest Lake Township trustee is proposing the formation of a citizen’s advisory board to offer recommendations on policies covering the township cemetery and says the township trustees should consider raising cemetery fees on non-residents to cover increasing costs.

Jeff Pettit, who was elected in November, said Tuesday other area cemeteries have higher fees for non-residents for opening burial plots, setting foundations and other services and Lake Township hasn’t increased its fees for several years. He said an advisory board should draw its members from the unincorporated area of the township and the villages of Millbury and Walbridge to ensure it reflects the entire township.
