It was a convincing story if there were stopped crossing the border this late in the season.   The group consisted of the “Gray Ghost” running his boat and the “Captain” running the second and faster boat. On board the first boat with Ghost were a (re)tired old captain who we will call “Cap,” his wife the “Island Tree Lady,” the “Diplomat,” and one...

-By Gordy Barr   Twelve billion years ago, a giant star exploded. Stuff was flung everywhere. Among the ruin of debris, a molten chunk began to cool as it spun and took on a circular shape. 1) The Earth was formed! Meadow Lark Lemon would later use this same technique to spin a basketball on his index finger when the Harlem Globetrotters played the hapless Washington Generals. 2) Some might argue that God (substitute your choice of higher being if Christianity is not to your liking) created the earth (and stocked it with interesting creatures) in seven days. Clearly a...

PACE, not too good to be true – By Peter Huston     Imagine if you just happened to attend a Lake Erie Shores and Islands Lodging Partner meeting and some guy gets up to talk and explains that he want to had you a quarter of a million dollars? $250k!

You think, “I have seen this infomercial”!   This fellow’s name is Jerry Arkebauer and he is with the Erie County Port Authority. I...

Noting that “going to the lake is the ultimate (and accessible) fun in the sun activity.” We could not agree more! Everyone has awesome memories they have made at...
