ICS is happy to see a familiar face

Principal Mrs. Connie Snyder had a surprise last Friday for the students of Immaculate Conception School. Snyder had the entire school congregate in the school gym last Friday. She told the students that she had a surprise and then opened a door to reveal Sr. Rosemary Hug, S.N.D., former principal of the school. Sr. Rosemary retired from ICS last year and is now living in Wakeman, Ohio, and working at St. Mary’s Parish. There were cheers and squeals of excitement and even a few happy tears. Sister Rosemary was just as delighted to see the kids and to see how much they have grown in a year.

Weather and Walleye Fishing on Lake Erie

It’s simple to say, “Let’s go fishing”, but it’s not so simple to catch fish when the weather conditions are constantly changing from day to day. Keeping an eye on the weather is very important when you’re a walleye angler, and making adjustments to your presentation is even more important.
