Pooch Parade Delivers WOOF Lots of Fun

Put in Bay Pooch Parade, held on Saturday morning June 13th, found four-legged, furry friends gathered together to display their character and charm.  From big to small, these furry friends marched with ease. They were proud and barked all the way through DeRivera Park.  Morning breeze blowing and sunshine glowing made for a magical morning.   The annual parade is a beautiful event bringing the community together with their loyal companions.

Lake Erie Barge a Testament to Maritime Business

Lake Erie, well-known for marine sporting activities, fierce storms, and gigantic lake freighters, continues to present a dynamic environment on all three fronts.

One must imagine the crane’s dinosaur-like growl . . .
