Trailing by seven points at halftime, Oak Harbor could fold and drop to 0-4 on the season, or it could fight back and take control of its contest with rival Port Clinton.

The Rockets chose the latter, rallying to score 24 consecutive points in its 31-14 defeat of the Redskins in Sandusky Bay Conference action.


Lakers fall short in comeback attempt versus Edon

Down 27 points midway through the third quarter, the easy thing for the Danbury Lakers to do would’ve been to quit.

Instead, Danbury rallied, cutting the deficit to 13 and 11 points, respectively, before falling short, losing, 54-43, to Edon in Toledo Area Athletic Conference on Friday.

Trailing 48-21, the Lakers drove 60 yards in 10 plays, scoring on Taylon Molnar’s five-yard run up the middle, cutting the deficit to 20 points.

Latta introduces legislation to address Harmful Algal Blooms

Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH) introduced the Great Lakes & Fresh Water Algal Blooms Information Act, bipartisan legislation to examine the causes and current mitigation efforts of algal blooms in the Great Lakes, their tributaries and surface fresh waters.

“The health of our Great Lakes is imperative,” said Latta. “With 84 percent of North America’s fresh surface water, these vital resources supply 40 million Americans with drinking water and generate tens of billions of dollars in fishing and tourism. While quality work and research have been done to mitigate the effects of harmful algal blooms in our Great Lakes, a comprehensive information system for this research to be submitted, studied and better understood does not exist. The Great Lakes & Fresh Water Algal Blooms Information Act would create this much needed information system to track and study the causes of toxin producing algal blooms, the factors and conditions that cause them to bloom in excess, and the effectiveness of mitigation efforts to ensure these waters remain healthy.”
