Schools have released balloons during elementary science classes and many people release them in remembrance of a loved one. But, what happens to those balloons once the helium runs out?

Students Against Balloon Releases, a partnership between Black Swamp Bird Observatory and Benton-Carroll-Salem Schools is hoping to educate students about the dangers and wastefulness of mass balloon releases and other forms of litter.

Tiffanie Hayes, BSBO Conservation Outreach Specialist, said she too remembers releasing balloons in science class. As she got older, she realized just how dangerous the practice was.

 
Oregon expects changes to bill that bans JEDZs

Oregon City Administrator Mike Beazley said he expects changes to House Bill 289, which limits the creation and renewal of Joint Economic Development Zones (JEDZ).

The Ohio House of Representatives passed the bill in February. If passed by the senate and signed into law, the bill would phase out the creation and renewal of JEDZs.

Currently, municipalities can enter into JEDZ agreements with each other or with townships. Revenue collected from employees and businesses within a JEDZ is used for expanded growth for commercial or economic development within the zone.

“We’re not all old school,” he said. “There is a segment out there already trying different practices on their own to help the situation with the environment.”

In his presentation at the 9th annual Lake Erie Conference last month, Myers, whose family farms about 2,000 acres in Oregon, said the intense scrutiny by some researchers on no-till planting and its links to algae blooms in Lake Erie may be misplaced.
