PERRYSBURG — Life, liberty and the pursuit of some good ole’ summertime fun.
That was the goal of this week’s Liberty Camp for kids held at the 577 Foundation.
Started by Cheryl Garlow in 2012, the camp aims to educate children about local, state and national history.
“Being a former teacher, I love history and I love kids and it seemed to be a natural partnership,” she said. “It’s wonderful to know the origins of our country and about our freedom.”
The first year, the camp was held at Bethel Assembly of God. Garlow got a curriculum from a Liberty Camp in Kentucky and adapted it for here.
“We dwelled on the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence and the Northwest Ordinance,” she said. “We talked about the difference of freedom and not having freedom.”
Garlow had a semi-unpleasant activity planned for the start of the week to stress the cost of freedom and what our forefathers paid for it.

Algae bloom predicted for Lake Erie PDF Print E-mail

TOLEDO — Lake Erie will have a significant bloom of toxic blue-green algae in its western basin this summer, though it isn’t expected to be as large last year’s or the record-setting 2011 outbreak, researchers in northern Ohio predicted Thursday.
Summer algae blooms have become more frequent and troublesome in Lake Erie, the shallowest of the five Great Lakes. They have threatened the lake’s tourism and fishing industries, and toxins produced by the algae have contributed to oxygen-deprived dead zones where fish can’t survive.
The prediction released Thursday — the third such annual outlook — was announced by officials with Ohio State University’s Sea Grant Program and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and other research partners.
The forecast and weekly bulletins tracking algae blooms factor into decisions that affect public and environmental health, NOAA’s administrator, Kathryn Sullivan, said in a statement.
“As an Ohio native, I understand the importance of these ecological forecasts to the Great Lakes region and its economy,” she said.

CSX is investing $43 million to expand its North Baltimore hub, which could be on track become one of the busiest rail centers in the country.
Company officials proposed the expansion last year but said it would require a federal grant to pay for half of the project.
The money didn't come, but CSX is expanding anyway to prepare for anticipated growth in the intermodal transportation industry, which involves moving containers by efficient means of combining rail, ground and shipping.
CSX proclaimed its North Baltimore site, opened in 2011, as the "cornerstone" of its larger National Gateway initiative to increase clearances allowing more double-stacked freight trains to move through the Mid-Atlantic and the Midwest.

Emergency radios in northern Wood County will soon be loud and clear with the help of an $806,000 grant.
Fire departments in Perrysburg, both the city and township, are the primary beneficiaries of a Federal Emergency Management Agency award announced Wednesday by U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio).
In addition to funding the purchase of digital radios which allow much more reliable communication during emergencies, the grant includes money for an antenna structure registry that will eliminate thousands of dollars in fees, explained city Fire Chief Jeff Klein.
The city and township departments will each buy 50 to 60 radios, which are digital instead of operating on an analog frequency. The switch will decrease radio transmission problems, as well as allow access to Lucas County’s radio system and better communication between regional departments.
