About 1,400 boaters, including 573 at Meinke Marina and 419 at Anchor Pointe Marina, are again able to navigate Cooley Canal to reach Lake Erie waters, thanks to the completion of a $300,000 dredging project.
That includes hundreds more that annually use Lucas County’s public dock on Cooley Canal, located in Jerusalem Township.
The problem began last summer when boats were getting stuck on sandbars and had to be towed. The reason — lake levels have dropped, says Paul Ashburn, board member and officer for Anchor Pointe.
A Lake Township trustee is repeating his request for an opinion from the Wood County Prosecutor’s office on what zoning resolutions a township can enforce to regulate shooting ranges – but with a slight change.
In a previous letter, Richard Welling asked the prosecutor’s office if there are zoning regulations a township can enforce regarding the discharge of firearms.
The office of Paul Dobson confirmed it had received the letter and said an opinion would be provided in about eight weeks.
After over 100 hours of surveying, Clay High School environmental science and biology teacher Dennis Slotnick says no evidence exists that the school’s wind turbine poses a threat to wildlife.
Slotnick said Ohio Department of Natural Resource protocols were used for the bird kill searches at the two Eisenhower turbines and the Clay turbine.
So far, only one red bat was found under the turbine last November. Slotnick says an independent searcher from the University of Toledo along with Clay students have found zero bird kills.
No results found.
